Weekly Roundup - 3/13/23

This week: From the Rest issue, contributing writer Helen Betya Rubinstein reviews Tricia Hersey’s Rest Is Resistance and explores what it means for rest to be politically generative. In a new report, associate editor Mari Cohen and senior reporter Alex Kane analyze leaked audio from an Anti-Defamation League all-hands meeting last year, in which CEO Jonathan Greenblatt defends his choice to equate anti-Zionism with far-right extremism.

From the newsletter, contributing writer Elisheva Goldberg outlines how settler violence in the West Bank—like the recent attack on Huwara—is part and parcel of Israeli annexation. And in a new episode of On the Nose, contributing editor Joshua Leifer talks to journalist Hebh Jamal and lawyer Nadija Samour about Germany’s intensifying crackdown on Palestinian identity and activism.
