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.

Terrorists, Murderers or Just Kids?
Five fifteen years-olds suspected of killing a Palestinian mother of nine by pelting her car with rocks are interrogated by the Shin Bet without being allowed to consult a lawyer to speak to their parents. Are the kids’ rights are being trampled?

A Hebrew U. prof who tells a student who complained about being treated uncivilly by a classmate because she came to class in uniform that she cannot expect others to treat her like a civilian when she’s dressed like a soldier. Should we be outraged?

Breeding Socialists in Schoolyards
In 2019, if a person joins an “educators’ kibbutz,” forgoing money, property and autonomy for the sake of higher ideals, are they a cultish dupe or a vanguard of a better future? Is capital-normativity the last great hegemony?
