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.
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.
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
