This week: From the Rest issue, contributing editor Dylan Saba explores the tension between the politics of production and degrowth in his review of Climate Change as Class War and Half-Earth Socialism. In a new report, Jewish Currents fellow Dahlia Krutkovich examines the effects of a recent antisemitism investigation on Palestine advocacy in the United Kingdom’s largest student union. Plus, in an open letter to Ambassador David Satterfield, writer and researcher Tareq Baconi declines his invitation to the Baker Institute’s “Israel at 75” forum and explores the trap Palestinians often face in public life: engage in discussions premised on their own oppression or weather accusations of “rejectionism.”
From the newsletter, contributing writer Elisheva Goldberg explores the implications of the Israeli government’s proposal to revoke the residency rights for the families of those convicted of terrorism. And on a new episode of On the Nose, Editor-in-Chief Arielle Angel, contributing writer Rebecca Pierce, critic and essayist Jasmine Sanders, and writer and Know Your Enemy co-host Sam Adler-Bell discuss “You People,” Netflix’s new romantic comedy, and the Jewish communal reaction to the film.
