Israel, officially the State of Israel, is a country in the Middle East. It is bordered by Syria to the northeast, Lebanon to the north, the Palestinian territories of Gaza Strip and the West Bank east and west, respectively, Jordan to the east and Egypt to the southwest. Its current prime minister is Benjamin Netanyahu. Israel had become a show topic on the True Capitalist Radio show in May 2018, when Ghost resumed hosting independently, due to rising tensions between it, Syria and Iran. Ghost feared the conflict could be the beginning of a possible war between the three countries, or possibly even the start of World War III. Ghost has been a staunch supporter of Israel throughout his radio career and has stated on several episodes of TCR that he's on the side of the Israelis on the conflict between Israel and Palestine, even referring to them as "our greatest ally".

During December 2017, United States President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, which led to protests and demonstrations in Gaza by Palestinian and other Muslim groups. Ghost applauded Trump for moving the embassy to Jerusalem and recognizing it as the capital of Israel.

On April 9, 2018, Israeli aircraft bombed an air base in Homs, Syria, killing 14 soldiers, half of which were Iranian soldiers, a couple days after a report of a suspected chemical attack by the Syrian government. Israel carried another bombing mission a month later, on May 8, 2018 against Syrian-allied forces in southern Damascus, Syria. This attack killed 15 people - 8 Iranians and seven Syrian-allied forces.

Trolling

Main article: Jewish Ghost

Due to his views towards Israel, trolls have speculated for the longest time that Ghost himself is a Jew. Ghost has always swiftly denied these allegations and claimed that he uses yarmulkes for coffee filters, despite being an avid hater of the said substance. There were a handful of Gab and Chatroom names referencing the attack on Episode 564 of True Capitalist Radio, some of the names caused Ghost to rage.
