    Susan Neiman: "It's not about being pro-Israel or pro-Palestine, but pro-human rights"

    Susan Neiman: "It's not about being pro-Israel or pro-Palestine, but pro-human rights"

    The ongoing war between Israel and Hamas has now passed the 100 day mark. On the 14 January Alona Ferber attended the Jewish Labour Movement conference, which happened to take place on the 100th day of the war. In this podcast she speaks with Susan Neiman, the American moral philosopher, about the splits this war has caused on the left and tensions she sees between tribalist currents on the left and universalist principles, which Neiman believes are the values of a true left.

    What does it mean to be Jewish and on the left today?

    What does it mean to be Jewish and on the left today?

    Earlier this month we published a magazine with the cover ‘Being Jewish Now’. At this time of crisis in the Middle East, with divisions over the Gaza war and rising anti-Semitism, we asked a group of writers, thinkers, and activists to reflect on the question of what it means to be Jewish and on the left today.     
    In this episode of the podcast senior editor Alona Ferber speaks to five of the writers who contributed to this essay collection, delving deeper into the themes explored in the magazine.
    Fania Oz-Salzberger: This generation will never see Gazans and Israelis become fellow citizens
    Sam Adler-Bell: Jews in the diaspora must resist the inhumanity being done by Israel in our name
    Omer Bartov: Both Netanyahu’s cabinet and Hamas see this crisis as an opportunity
    Chanda Prescod-Weinstein: Lessons of growing up black and Jewish
    Howard Jacobson: The founding of Israel wasn’t a colonial act – a refugee isn’t a colonist

    Iran's interest in Israel, with former ambassador John Jenkins

    Iran's interest in Israel, with former ambassador John Jenkins

    Iran, Hamas and Hezbollah – all of whom operate out of Beirut’s southern suburbs – have coordinated their positions in various ways for years in pursuit of what they see as the greater good.
    John Jenkins, former British ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Libya, Iraq, Syria and Burma, speaks to senior editor Katie Stallard about Iran's interest in the Israel-Hamas conflict and how this will play out across the region.

Wha does it mean to be Jewish

Please do the same for Palestines’s so that we have their voice heard as we need their voices

Terrible decision to end podcast

I’m not interested in listening to NS main podcast feed but I came to World Review for journalism I wouldn’t get elsewhere in English

Steetwise ,

The ‘angry women’ club…

…chatter-chatter with the ladies who stress about the climate & ‘popularism’. This is the pod where elitist college educated ladies are allowed too much time around the mic without proper supervision; always so angry and aggressive; always making sweeping statements around ‘climate science’ & how terrible the ‘far-right’ is - its always the FAR right isn’t it but never the FAR left, hmmm liberal-elite conspiracy? I wonder? - and of course virtue signalling at every opportunity…woke is the only way for these delicates.
This pod should be renamed #WhiteManBad, because those that think that will love wallowing in constant outrage with these irritating whiners.
Nurse! Nurse! I think less hysterical voices are needed here… (maybe a man in the room too would help…is that allowed? Probably not)
