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

Let the pressure begin?
We discuss Peter Beinart’s proposal that it’s time for American Jews to lobby the U.S. government to pressure and punish Israel, channeling the Piper Chapman dictum, “Bitches gots to learn.”

“V” for “vanquished” (and you thought it was for “victory”!)
We discuss former defense minister Moshe Arens’ assertion that the left’s “anyone-but-Bibi” campaign is what cost them the election, by making Netanyahu seem like an unfairly maligned neophyte.

Angry, angry Ashkenazim
We ask why one white leftist after another expresses crazy rage in crazy ways against the Mizrahi voters who came out to support Netanyahu; why do us privileged folks have so much spleen?
