10/13 Israel Escalates Atrocities In Gaza, Scalise Drops Out w/ Noah Kulwin

October 13, 2023

It’s Casual Friday! Emma is joined by Noah Kulwin, co-host of the Blowback podcast, to round up a chaotic week in news. First, Emma runs through updates on Israel’s impossible order to Gazans, rising death numbers, and continuing war crimes, as well as the US reneging on Iran, Bob Menendez’s corruption, labor action, climate change, and more, before parsing through the explicitly genocidal rhetoric coming from the top of Israeli and US politics. Noah Kulwin then parses through Israel’s ongoing siege of Gaza, including an impossible evacuation order, the complete lack of symmetry in the Israel-Palestine relationship, and the total control of Israel’s apartheid system. After touching on Israel’s knowledge of an impending attack, Noah and Emma discuss the severe (and unsurprising) failure of Israel’s attempt to beat Palestine into submission, before wrapping up with the dramatic double standards for pro-Palestine and pro-Israel stances in the media. Emma concludes the free half with a quick update on the rise and fall of the theoretical nomination of Steve Scalise to House Speakership, and the increasing bad blood within the GOP.

And in the Fun Half: Emma watches British journalist Owen Jones attempt to fend off a British MP’s relentless apartheid apologia, looks back on Noam Chomsky’s statements on the asymmetry of Israel-Palestine relations, and talks with Ulysses from Cincinnati about a new outsider candidate in the 2024 election. El from Toronto explores the role of conscription in Israel’s project of genocide, Karine Jean-Pierre calls anti-genocide rhetoric “repugnant” on behalf of Joe Biden, and Nathan from the South East discusses his perspective on the troubled teen industry. Matt Walsh finally has some thoughts on queer childhood, and Mike from Brooklyn discusses solidarity action with Palestine, plus, your calls and IMs!
