Eating knafeh in Nablus.
In this episode Evgenia and I talk about a short trip we took to Palestine last year and get into all sorts of related topics — Zionism, the occupation, nationalism, Israel’s weaponization of Soviet and Russian Jewish immigrants, Jews vs. Jew hatred. We also talk about our unexpected and surprising stay at Banksy’s hotel in occupied Bethelham — surprising because we accidentally stumbled onto what might be the only example of effective political art that I’ve seen in my life…in the shape of a cheesy boutique hotel. And I don’t even like Banksy’s art very much.
