On Tuesday’s Breitbart News Daily, conservative scholar and talk radio host Mark Levin called in and expressed his enthusiasm about Breitbart News’s new Jerusalem bureau.

“I cannot tell you how excited I am by what you just did,” he said. “This is a big deal what you guys are doing. It is a big deal.”

Levin added that Breitbart Jerusalem Bureau Chief Aaron Klein is the “perfect man to head this.”

“Hurricane Breitbart is about to hit the Middle East and I’m honored to be at the center of the storm,” Klein said in a statement. “The Breitbart revolution has been exploding in the U.S. and across Europe and it’s time to deploy that energy to the streets of Jerusalem and beyond. I look forward to working with the company’s esteemed leaders, including Steve Bannon, Larry Solov and Alexander Marlow.”

Host and Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon thanked Levin, who was Breitbart News Daily’s first guest, for being such a great mentor and supporter of the Breitbart News team and said a Jerusalem bureau was “a dream of Andrew’s.” Bannon mentioned that Breitbart “conceived of the entire network and news operation” when he was in Israel—visiting with Benjamin Netanyahu on a media junket—with Breitbart News CEO, best friend, and business partner Larry Solov.

“The anti-establishment approach of Breitbart News and its dedication for reporting the truth that others don’t want to tell has captured a growing audience not limited by geographic borders,” said Breitbart News President and CEO Larry Solov. “Andrew Breitbart’s vision, even when it was just the two of us working out of a basement, was for Breitbart News to offer a voice to freedom-loving people everywhere and to tailor their news experience both locally and globally.”
