Allison Kaplan Sommer, Noah Efron and Wunderkind critic Ohad Zeltzer-Zubida discuss three topics of incomparable importance and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.
--Hang Together or Hang Separately?--
Must all the parties on Israel’s left merge before the next election?
--A Different Solidarity--
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s decides to republish a memoir that made him cry, by an Iraqi-Israeli author about being forced out of Iraq and coming to Israel. This fragile, odd act raises the question: Is there another sort of politics that might lead to peace that we haven’t let ourselves see.
Environmental activists say the government is a bunch of lying liars who lie to serve rich corporate overlords. Isn’t this just Trumpism, by another name?
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra segment, we discuss, after Allison wrote about it profoundly in Haaretz, why Israeli leaders aren't talking about America's anti-semitism crisis?
All this and Mizrahi, Kabbalistic world music of Yakir Hillel, on the banjo!
