Reporters' Roundtable: Caterpillar and the Conversion Bill

In this week’s Reporters’ Roundtable podcast, host Josh Nathan-Kazis speaks with editor Jane Eisner, news editor Larry Cohler-Esses and staff writer Gal Beckerman about the American construction company, Caterpillar, and its role in providing Israel with bulldozers that have been used to destroy Palestinian homes. The panel also discusses the controversial conversion bill that is stalled in the Knesset, and why the legislation has sounded alarms in the Diaspora.
