Despite the fact he no longer has any relevance or credibility, DL Foster brought attention to two interviews JONAH recently gave to an extremist Israeli internet radio station. The first features JONAH co-director and executive secretary of the NARTH board Arthur Goldberg and the second has testimonials.

What DL didn’t mention is just how extreme Israel National Radio is:

Arutz Sheva Israel National Radio is a right wing Israeli radio station. Founded in 1988, it formerly broadcasted on the Israeli airwaves from a ship in the Mediterranean Sea outside of Israel’s territorial waters until being shutdown by the Israeli government. Currently it only broadcasts over the Internet from its website which it has been running for about the last ten years. It was forced to broadcast from a ship because Israeli law only permits private radio station on the local level.

In February 1999, the Knesset passed a law legalising [sic] the operation of Arutz Sheva and absolving them of earlier illegal broadcasting, but this was appealed to the Israeli Supreme Court which ruled the law null and void in March, 2002. Supporters of the station claim this is due to their Right Wing views. In October 2003, ten employees of Arutz Sheva were convicted of operating an illegal radio station during the period 1995-1998, both from offshore and on land. Station director Ya’acov Katz was convicted on two counts of perjury for having lied about the location of the broadcasts.
