Top Israeli official in Midwest on Capitol City Sunday


MADISON (WKOW) -- Israel's Consul General to the Midwestern United States talks about economic and international security issues on Capitol City Sunday this weekend.

Roey Gilad tells Greg Neumann that Israel supports the United States in its effort to stop Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, but has some trouble with its tactics.

"Unfortunately, our past experience with the Iranians, with another nuclear state, North Korea, shows that all too often they were bluffing the international community," says Gilad.

Based in Chicago, Gilad spent part of the week in Madison meeting with UW officials.

This week's show also features a look back at what the state legislature accomplished in 2013.  Political reporters Scott Bauer of the Associated Press and Jessica Van Egeren of the Madison Capital Times are the guests for that segment.

Capitol City Sunday airs at 9:00 a.m. on WKOW 27.
