Sarah Posner (sarahposner.com, God's Profits) and Emily L. Hauser (Open Zion, In My Head )

On The Posner Show, Sarah talks with Emily about why she left Israel, a country she chose as her home, after the second intifada. They discuss recent mob violence against African immigrants in Tel Aviv, and how American Jewish groups have reacted to it. Emily talks about her column about the lies of Jerusalem Day, and why the modern construct of Jerusalem is not the same as the holy city revered by Jews. Sarah questions whether American Jews really understand the increasingly right-wing trajectory of the Israeli government. Emily says the government is “wholly dedicated to protecting the occupation,” and doubts she will live in Israel again. Plus: Is the discussion generated by the blog Open Zion having an impact?
