This episode of the Promised Podcast doesn’t deal with the recent West Bank teen kidnappings straight-up; it’s already been instrumentalized by too many, based on too few facts. We adhere to Ludwig Wittgenstein’s dictum: “Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent.”
Allison, Don & Noah discuss:
Is mainstream Israel losing patience with settlers, as found in a recent poll conducted by an institution that supports the settlements?
How long can Prime Minster Netanyahu go on being the Peace Process’ “obstructionist-in-chief?’ Has he lost his grip?
Is our joy over the Stones, Neil Young, Lady Gaga and other A-List acts coming to Israel just a little pathetic?
All songs by Baladino, singing in the dying language of Ladino, from their new album “Dos Amantes”:
La Kumida La Manyana
Si Veriash A La Rana
A Sinyora Novia
Kuando El Rey Nimrod
