Episode #73: “Even if I made Hitler laugh, he’d still hate me.”

As Rosen adjusts to the new nighttime reality of the Twilight Lounge, the boys settle in for a serious discussion, but first they must explore the differences between “manly men” and Jewish men. Which are more likely to do the dishes? No matter, the real issues are Rosen’s tenuous connection to Israel and his question, given the recent violence, of whether

the Temple Mount is good for the Jews.

Things get heavy at this point, with Goldbrener preaching knowledge about the Middle East, as usual embracing controversy and delivering this somewhat bleak argument: whether or not the Temple Mount is good for the Jews, this stuff isn’t going away any time soon.
