After discussing last week's Warsaw middle east conference, and why (if?) it mattered, Alan Mike and Matt reflect on the normalisation of an overtly racist political party. What role does racism play in Israeli life and politics? What can, and should, be done to push back against this alarming trend in Israeli society? Join us!

(This episode was recorded before the Gantz/Lapid merger. We hope to release an early episode next week discussing that major development)
