In the week the Palestinian Authority won non-member observer status at the UN, Judith and Damian try to draw some comparisons between the respective public manners of natives of the US, the UK, and Israel and the way the diplomats of those countries go about their business.

Is “Israeli diplomacy” an oxymoron? And, if so, are there cultural reasons for Israel’s clumsiness? During the podcast, you’ll hear thedifference between being run over by a driver in Tel Aviv and one in New York and learn about a British MP with a Hitler haircut who had a problem with Britain having a Jewish ambassador to Israel.
