Host Simon Spungin is joined by Haaretz’s Allison Kaplan Sommer to discuss Seth Rogen’s assertion that he was lied to about Israel, a country which, he says, “makes no sense” to him.
We ask: How representative is the Canadian-American actor and comedian of Jews of his generation? Has anything changed since the internet made exactly the information Rogen feels was kept from him instantaneously available to curious adolescents? And how does Rogen differ from Peter Beinart, who recently reflected on his disillusionment with Zionism?
We also discuss the ever-spreading protests against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, which are now taking place nightly not only across Israel, but overseas as well. Is this the most female protest movement in Israel’s history, will our moms protect us from overzealous cops and why are more and more Israelis standing on overpasses on Saturday evenings?
