Oy, the dissonance: The unusual politics of Israel's new president
In this episode of The Promised Podcast, we discuss Rubi Rivlin's politics, the end of prisoner swaps, and a self-styled pro-Palestinian settler leader.
Rubi Rivlin: A man of contradictions
What to make of Israel’s newly elected President, Rubi Rivlin, a real mensch who also opposes a two-state solution? Oy, the dissonance!
A pro-Palestinian settler leader?
The startling NY Times op-ed by a settler leader who insists that Israel must hatch a “bold plan to improve every aspect of day-to-day life for Palestinians." What gives?
Is this the end of prisoner swaps?
A cabinet decision to prohibit future pardons of murderers, ruling out Gilad Shalit-style prisoner exchanges.
