Allison Kaplan Sommer, Noah Efron and Wunderkind writer, critic & activist Ohad Zeltzer-Zubida discuss three topics of incomparable importance and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.
Going, Going, Gantz!
Blue-and-White head Benny Gantz failed to form the “secular, Liberal, national-unity government” he sought. Did we dodge a bullet?
Politics by Other Means
We hate to even ask, but: Is it possible that Israel’s recent skirmish with the rocket-firing Islamic Jihad in Gaza was timed for PM Netanyahu’s political purposes?
Fear and Firer
Controversy ignites over a benefit concert for an ultra-Orthodox-run NGO that helps people navigate Israel’s health care system. What should we make of it?
Are Settlements More a Moral Problem Rather Than a Legal One?
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra segment, we discuss an essay in the Forward by Peter Beinart headlined, “Settlements Is Not That They Are Illegal. It’s That They Are Immoral.” This apropos the sound-and-fury-and-signifying-nothing statement by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that, following Ronald Reagan, the Trump administration does not hold that civilian settlements in the occupied territories contravene international law.
