179 Three Lenses on Annexation

June 18, 2020

It is still not clear what form July's annexation will take, if it happens at all. We discussed many of the relevant questions with Calev Ben-Dor in episode 176. In this episode, Alan, Mike and Matt lay out Benjy's theory of The Three Lenses for viewing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Then, they role play an improvised conversation about annexation from each of the three perspectives. Alan represents social justice, Matt takes on the geopolitical perspective, and Mike plays the fundamentalist. Join us for a lively and clarifying episode.


This episode was recorded on Zoom, and then sent to the amazingĀ Ben Wallick Studios for editing. Ben is the best!
