The “Breaking Up is Hard to Do” Edition

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

Right (Or, Naftali & Ayelet’s Excellent Adventure)
Numbers one and two of the modern-Orthodox Jewish Home party, leave to start “The New Right.” It’s sad when kids run away from (The Jewish) Home.

Center (Or, Plenty of Benny)
A general starts a new centrist party in Israel, joining forces with another general and, just like that, they’re number two in the polls, behind Netanyahu. Does the future of Israeli politics run down the middle?

Left (Or, The Defenestration of Tzippi Livni)
Avi Gabbay, head of Israel’s labor party, defenestrates his main political partner on TV. But is there anything left of the left?

Extra Segment
As you generous people asked, each of us discuss which party we would vote for, if elections were held tomorrow.
