The “Bibi’s Busy Week” Edition

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

A Pax on Both Your Houses
We’ve read US President Trump’s Deal-of-the-Century peace plan, and our considered reaction is, “WTF?!?”

Not Immune
Prime Minister Netanyahu withdraws his request for immunity, and is formally charged with bribery, fraud and breach of trust. Now what?

Homeward Bound
Did Vladimir Putin just make Bibi Netanyahu his bitch?

“I moved to Israel with hopes of peace. Trump’s plan is the nail in that coffin.”
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra segment, we discuss an essay in The Forward by our friend and colleague Dahlia Scheindlin, headlined, “I moved to Israel with hopes of peace. Trump’s plan is the nail in that coffin.” What do you say to a friend in such despair?

All this and the music of anna RF!

    So glad my cousin, Tevi Troy sent me the link to you podcast! I feel at home listening to you and will keep my ears open for future podcasts.

    Just applied to become 50th member of recommended FB group: Israel Roundabouts! And if you’re into discussing FB groups in your podcasts, you are welcomed to have a look at Life on the Border with Gaza, a group I founded and monitor, to advocate for our region and describe our realities down here. There are over 5k members and has gotten a lot of attention, and is part of the reason why I have been invited to speak at international venues, including a JNF tour in 2015 , 3 trips to Switzerland and addressing the UN Security Council this past December.
