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.

Netanyahu Lieberman Yaalon ed crop
Coalition ambition, suspicion, sedition, contrition & admonition

We discuss the expansion of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s coalition that leaves Herzog and Labor out, and Avigdor Lieberman and his right-wing Yisrael Beiteinu Party in.

 

Taglit Birthright program
Birthright, Divest & Sanction?

A small number of “Birthright” alums are returning home to fight Israeli policy, and some are even joining BDS. How do you solve a problem like Birthright? Should we even try?

 


Be like Bar?

As new Israeli hair-straightening invention the “Dafni brush” flies off the shelves, we discuss the politics of Israeli images of beauty that find lithe, blond, and northern-European to be the ne plus ultra of hotness.

 

All songs by Omer Leshem, in honor of his great new album:

Highway Of Life
I Can’t Say
You Were Mine
You’re O.K.
