Episode 85: Who Are You Calling Nazi?
What do the King of Saudi Arabia, the leader of Egypt, and the leader of India have in common? They’re all more anti-Hamas than our president. Jay and Mona consider the oddness of this moment, and then move on to the question of why – of all things – Israel is routinely accused of being Nazi.
There are countries and movements in the world that resemble Nazis, and Jay discusses a new book about the abuse of Falun Gong by China. It’s one small window into the horrific nature of that regime. And yet, we trade, we travel, we study – we pretend that China is just another normal country.
No offense meant to Wolfgang, but we close with some Beethoven because it’s linked to a language point Jay was making. Enjoy.
