In this week’s podcast, host Josh Nathan-Kazis is joined by Forward news editor Larry Cohler-Esses and Forward fellow Naomi Zeveloff to discuss the fallout of French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s recent gaffe when he was caught calling Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu a “liar” to Barack Obama. Then the group turns to Naomi’s recent story about the questionable practice of some colleges to give credit to students who take Israel advocacy classes. Finally, Nathan Guttman, the Forward’s Washington correspondent, phones in to talk about the recent General Assembly of the Jewish Federations of North America, which just wrapped up in Denver.
