In this week’s podcast, host Josh Nathan-Kazis talks with Forward fellow Naomi Zeveloff about her profile of Ali Abunimah, a prominent pro-Palestinian activist who advocates for the boycott of Israel. Then, Forward Washington correspondent Nathan Guttman calls in to discuss the fallout from last week’s AIPAC conference and Netanyahu’s victory in changing the dialogue from the Palestinian to Iran. Then, Naomi and Josh discuss complaints filed by Jewish students under anti-discrimination legislation. Finally, Itzik Gottesman of the Yiddish Forward details the wild Purim celebrations that happen every year in Brooklyn’s Boro Park neighborhood.
