Allison Kaplan Sommer, Ohad Zeltzer-Zubida and Noah Efron discuss three topics of incomparable importance and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.
The Problem of Power
Trevor Noah and John Oliver say that death counts alone are enough to see that Israel is wrong, and fighting an “unfair fight.” What do you do with a claim like that?
Before the fighting, Right, Left, and Center politicians negotiated a coalition to replace Netanyahu, with the support of an Islamist party. Once the fighting broke out, the coalition fell apart before it ever took hold. Does this prove what many say, that an Arab-Jewish political alliance cannot survive an Arab-Jewish war?
Is it kosher for the IDF Spokesman to lie to reporters, if it helps the IDF do its job?
Thrown Out for Throwing Rocks
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra discussion, we talk about a petition demanding to sack a high-school principal caught on film throwing a rock in a riot. The man – Sagi Rosenbaum is his name – says he sees he made a terrible mistake – is that enough to let him keep his job?
All that and the powerful rap of 22-year old Jerusalemite Adi Agai!
