L’Affair Barghouti: The Times, They are Retracting
We discuss the convicted terrorist and likely-future Palestinian President Marwan Barghouti, the hunger strike he’s leading, and the rage over his op-ed in the New York Times.
Fighting the Good Fight Against the Bad Global Right
We mull over an analysis by the Israeli left’s most universally-respected leader – Dov Khenin – about how to fight the global right (and Israel’s).
Not Our Holocaust Day
We ask why Ultra-Orthodox Israelis ignore, and sometimes mock, Holocaust and Heroism Remembrance Day.
