Reporters' Roundtable: A Rift in the Israeli Left; the Islamophobia Newtork

This week, host Josh Nathan-Kazis is joined by Forward opinion editor Gal Beckerman and Forward contributor Joseph Dana, of the Israeli news site +972, to discuss a developing rift amongst Israeli and international activists who are concerned that the J14 protests have failed to address the Occupation of Palestinian territories. Then the group is joined by assistant managing editor Larry Cohler-Esses and Wajahat Ali, one of the lead authors of a new report from the Center for American Progress that identifies the largest funders of anti-Muslim activism in the United States. Lastly, Naomi Zeveloff reports on some apparent confusion about Republican Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann’s religious background.
