Noah Efron, Times of Israel Ops & Blogs Editor Miriam Herschlag, and Ha’aretz columnist Bradley Burston discuss three topics of incomparable importance and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.

Cabel News
A Labor Party stalwart breaks ranks and says that some of the settlements should be annexed to Israel, as a first step to an eventual peace. His colleagues on the left call him nuts, but is he maybe nutty like a fox?

Messi Politics
Football great Lionel Messi and the Argentinian National Team cancel a friendly match against Israel after it was moved from Haifa to Jerusalem. Is this a turning point in Israeli attitudes about BDS?

To the Class of 2018
Michael Chabon tells newly ordained Rabbis to end their fetishist obsession with keeping Jews Jews, and tells Israelis to stop their us-vs.-them exclusionary wall-building. Mightn’t he have a point?
