Tony is globetrotting this week so veteran KTAR broadcaster Jim Sharpe is taking the reigns.
This week we learned antisemitism isn't just for gentiles. We'll speak to Margot in Israel about the apprehension of the 19-year-old accused of calling in bomb threats to American Jewish Community Centers. Was it a relief to know the threats were called in by an Israeli and not the Klan? Then we'll find out what Israeli media is saying about the arrest and discuss the political climate in Israel since Trump took office.
Then we head to the United Kingdom and speak with Professor Charlie Beckett about the latest terror attack in London. Professor Beckett was actually in parliament during the attack. We will get his perspective of how the media is covering the attacks both in Britain and internationally. Did they glorify the spectacle as American media always does or is their coverage an example for news outlets like CNN?
North Korea has the Trump Administration's full attention as Secretary of State Tillerson met Chinese President Xi Jinping today to discuss North Korea's latest round of missile tests.

We'll speak to our analyst there and find out why China is so worried.
Then, guess who's coming to dinner? That's right, Angela Merkel, the woman popular media is calling "The Leader of The Free World" met with President Donald Trump this week. Without any wasted time, Trump brought up Obama's wire tapping of Merkel's phone. What did we tell you weeks ago when the Trump wire-tapping allegations were made? We speak to Mark in Europe and find out what the European media is saying about the Trump-Merkel meeting.
Finally, tune in to our second hour to hear our favorite Sunday morning reality journalist say a naughty word again. Apparently, Fareed Zakaria's dictionary shrinks when his emotions take over. Because to be a good journalist, you must lead with emotions.
The Kid Dictator fired more missiles into the Sea of Japan last week. We'll speak to Riki Ellison from the Missile Defense Advocacy Alliance about the Trump Administration's subdued response. Is it possible for anything bearing the Trump name to be subdued? We'll ask Riki what he thinks will come of the latest round of tests and what he thinks Trump is trying to do about North Korea.
Then, the Dutch elections are only two days away and now Turkey has stepped into the fray, calling members of the Dutch parliament "Nazis." Sound familiar? At the same time, the Turkish government is pushing a referendum to expand Erdogan's power.

It appears Julian Assange may be living his last days at the Ecuadorian embassy in Great Britain. With the Ecuadorian elections looming, one candidate says he will throw Assange out, the other says the Wikileaks founder can stay. What will Assange do if he is thrown out of his safe haven? We'll speak to a voice in Ecuador to find out if this is a hot-button issue with the Ecuadorian citizens or if they don't mind being Assange's safe house.
Then, there is an election looming in the Netherlands and one of the candidates is Trump in clogs. The hair, the looks, the attitude and the rhetoric, Geert Wilders has it all. But does he have what it takes to lead another anti-establishment charge in Western politics? We'll speak to our voice in Europe about what will happen if Wilders pulls a victory in the March 15th polls.
