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.

auschwitz camp
“Never again” what? “Never again” why?

We discuss what lessons we Israelis should draw from the Holocaust, and what lessons we shouldn’t. Is there a different kind of Israeli exceptionalism to be found in the memory of the Holocaust?


Legislation nation

Why do Israeli lawmakers propose more bills than lawmakers anywhere else on earth? Is this a good thing, making the country better in countless small ways, or is it a distracting side-show?


Ugly israelis ed
Ugly, ugly Israelis

We discuss the finger-pointing at Israelis who leave trash on beaches and in national parks, and whether or not it has racist undertones.
