Episode #132: “Warm Jews; one-state solution.”

Rosen’s in a bad mood, but don’t let that stop you from joining the boys as they tackle the important issues of the day. This week, after they wade through psychosomatic illnesses and the root causes of local transit failure, they discuss the results of a Pew Research Report measuring “warmth” toward (or from?) Jews, then dive into one of the more controversial topics in the (Is it) Good for the Jews? universe, namely:

Is the one-state solution good for the Jews?

A spirited debate has followed the revelation that the present U.S. president “is fine either way.” Is a one-state solution preferable to the two-state solution? Is it even feasible? Is two-state a “sacred cow?” Follow the boys as they travel the familiar roller coaster of Middle Eastern politics from the relative safety of the Twilight Lounge.

Episode #131: “Kippah restrictions; spiralizer.”

Knit caps are the rule in the Twilight Lounge, and Rosen’s new spiralizer isn’t the pasta replacement he’d hoped for, but the frittata is his crowning achievement. In other news, the boys are unclear on Canadian border restrictions and Julian Edelman has made us all proud, Kimmel can’t bluff and Goldbrener has never heard of Kat Dennings, Pornhub’s 5th-hottest Jewish female celebrity.

But the real news is in France, where some are wondering:

Would a restriction on wearing kippot  be good for the Jews?

The boys agree that this can in no way be true, so they veer off from there to discuss religious sacred cows, the status of Jews in France, assimilation, whether or not San Francisco is a “bubble” or a place of great diversity of thought, the efficacy of antagonizing Muslims for no good reason, amateur rabble-rousers and low-hanging fruit. And finally, Goldbrener offers a solution to France’s (and the world’s) ills.

Impressive, but it’s not pasta.

Episode #130: “Holocaust omission; female Palestinian race car drivers.”

Fueled by burritos, the boys settle into the Twilight Lounge to speak of automotive break-ins, hippie mints, far-flung western wear stores, Y & T and jugglers who set up shop in crosswalks before segueing to Texan mensches, probable cause in cases of arson and, finally, encouraging tales of female Palestinian race car drivers.

On to the main event:

Is ignoring the Jews on Holocaust Remembrance Day good for the Jews?

Is it possible to know exactly why the new POTUS deliberately omitted any mention of Jews in his International Holocaust Remembrance Day statement? Perhaps not, but it is possible to take issue with leaving us out, especially since the stated purpose of the “Final Solution” was to eliminate all Jews.

The short answer to this question is “no.”
