Noah, Don and Times of Tel Aviv Review founder and co-host Gilad Halpern discuss three topics of incomparable importance and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week. Donald Does the Holy Land! We discuss President Donald Trump’s visit to Israel and the Palestinian Authority, and what it augurs for peace in the region. Road Trip! We mull over Why the Zionist Union decided to take a road trip in the occupied territories, and why some of its most popular MKs boycotted the excursion. If I Don’t Press Thee, O’ Jerusalem, or The Dress! We ponder the “Jerusalem Dress” that Culture Minister Miri Regev wore on the Red Carpet in Cannes, and why it broke the internet (hint: misogyny may be partly to blame). Music: Aya Zahavi-Feiglin, in honor of her new EP, America, that just dropped this week! Sport My Dog Eifoh ha-Zahav Februar
