This week, host Josh Nathan-Kazis is joined by Forward editor Jane Eisner and Forward staff writer Nathan Guttman to discuss a Forward investigation that shows that a federal anti-terror grant program favors Jewish organizations — specifically Orthodox groups. The group then turns to discuss the upcoming Palestinian bid for statehood recognition in the United Nations. Later opinion editor Gal Beckerman stops by to discuss a recent op-ed about the competing motivations of Israeli social protests and, finally, why was the leader of the English Defence League dressed up like an Orthodox Jew?
