IsraelCast Episode 175
Colonel Richard Kemp is no stranger to conflict. For over 30 years, Colonel Kemp has commanded troops in hostile territory and been at the forefront of the battle against terrorism. Now, Kemp also advocates for Israel, often in places where Jew hatred runs rampant, from college campuses to news outlets. Host Steven Shalowitz sits down with Colonel Kemp to discuss the relationship between the British and Israeli military, his experiences advocating for Israel on college campuses, and where he thinks anti-Israel bias comes from.
Colonel Richard Kemp was a soldier for 30 years, commanding British forces in some of the world’s worst conflict hotspots, including Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Balkans. He was also the head of the international terrorism intelligence team at the British Prime Minister’s Office. Kemp was wounded in a terrorist attack in Northern Ireland, and his name appeared on an Al Qaida kill list found in Syria. Now a media commentator, writer, and public speaker, Kemp frequently defends Israel against lies, bias, and distortions around the world, including at the United Nations.
