Philip Weiss joins the show to discuss developments concerning the Israeli government’s support among American Jews. They talk about a column written recently by Thomas Friedman, who is essentially a neoconservative who presents himself as a centrist liberal. Friedman urged his fellow American Jews to push back against the direction Netanyahu’s government is taking Israeli society. Scott and Weiss discuss the significance of this development and frame out the broader context of what’s happening.
