Allison, Don, and Noah discuss three topics of incomparable importance, and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert meets with French President Nicolas Sarkozy and Palestinian Authority Minister Mahmoud Abbas at the Elysee Palace in Paris

We discuss the behind-the-scenes deals that allowed MKs to funnel monies to their favorite causes in exchange for their acquiescence to the proposed budget. Is it quite as unsavory as it seems?

We discuss an IDF poll showing that, increasingly, the guys with the guns are the guys with the kippot. Should we be worried that the army seems to be becoming a religious person’s institution?
