Allison, Don, and Noah discuss:

• “iNakba,” an iPhone app that aims to put the dispossession of Palestinian homes and villages into your pocket;
• Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s pledge to “legally define the Talmud as the basis of the Israeli legal system” and to make the Jewish calendar the official calendar of the state;
• and whether Israel, like the rest of the West, is experiencing a “crisis of authority” that makes it impossible to govern.
