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.

We discuss the fear and fear-mongering at the heart of the election campaigns. Was PM Netanyahu a diabolical genius who played up, played on, and played with our fears, or was he just addressing our deepest concerns?
