On the first episode of The Posner Show, Sarah Posner and Sarah Wildman discuss how framing Iran’s nuclear ambitions as an existential threat assists fundamentalists, both Jewish and Christian. They also worry that the Republican presidential hopefuls rely more on myth than fact when discussing Middle East policy. How has casino magnate Sheldon Adelson so effectively shaped public opinion both in the US and Israel? And Newt Gingrich trivia: he narrowly averted an intifada, and took evangelizing lessons from a Messianic Jew.
