Episode 31: Antisemitism's New Narrative | Asra Nomani & Izabella Tabarovsky


In the Hold my Drink — navigating the news and politics with a chaser of civility — and Counterweight podcast, Episode 31, Izabella Tabarovsky, a Russian-Jewish American immigrant, and Asra Nomani, an Indian-Muslim American immigrant join me to talk about the framing of the Israel-Palestine conflict. The new social justice movement has replaced the nuance and complexity of the situation with binary stereotypes of oppressor and oppressed. We discuss how the real-world application of such simplistic dogma has dangerous implications beyond the rise of antisemitism. All discussed with a chaser of civility, of course, and a shot of humanity.

To read a recap of the conversation and additional thoughts, and to see what we are each reading, be on the look-out for our post Antisemitism’s New Narrative coming out tomorrow on Substack or out now on the Hold my Drink website.

Hold My Drink welcomes all people with all kinds of beverages to join us as we discuss what it takes to imagine a new American identity, together.
