Is the Palestinian Authority shutting down, mind-melding with Hamas, or what? Why does the new strongman Rabbi atop ultra-Orthodox Shas party think that all the rest of us are ignoramuses? Could it be, like the OECD claims, that Israel is “the land of low taxes”? Plus, the new album by indie demi-god Uzi Ramirez, on The Promised Podcast.

Allison, Don and Noah discuss:
- Mahmoud Abbas’ two “Hail Mary” plays, either dismantling the Palestinian Authority or joining up with Hamas
- The new 83 year-old head of the Council of Torah Sages, who gave a crowd-pleasin’ inaugural address calling all those who are not ultra-Orthodox “ignoramuses” who “pursue nonsense”
- The mind-blowing new report of the OECD that finds that Israel is “the land of low taxes”

All Songs by Uzi Ramirez, in honor of his new album that just came out last week, "Cheese in My Pocket":
I know its mine
Cheese in my Pocket
The elevator goes up and down
