Episode #139: Hamas’ change of heart?

On May Day, a walking intersectionality poster child (complete with crisp new “Free Palestine” t-shirt) sends the boys spinning off into an hour-long exploration of  hot button issues that includes Dr. Goldbrener’s comprehensive history of the Middle East and Rosen’s supposing that DJT might be “crazy like a fox,” plus a focus on why San Francisco’s Yom Ha’atzmaut celebration has shrunken so precipitously since 2000.

All warm-up bouts for the week’s main event:

Is Hamas’ new “document of principles” for the Jews?

After a good run as Israel’s worst neighbor, an increasingly isolated Hamas has turned over a new leaf — sort of. While still officially dedicated to the destruction of Israel, the terrorists/governors’ new document includes language that suggests they might tolerate Jewish neighbors… for now. Is this a turning point? Is it a desperate ploy? Is it meaningless? Listen up as we break it down.
