"Though I'm not the sort to quibble, if I was, I might say that savor eat missed an opportunity when they named their machine the robot chef instead of the obviously better choice robo chef, which if they had and the machine dings that your burger is ready and you should take it, they could have had the machine say. But I digress, savor eat says that the robot chef application stores data securely on the cloud, a feature they say that gives the system the flexibility to constantly update recipes on the one hand and to safely collect consumer information on the other, storing all that information in the cloud what in computer circles is known as sky netting the information. Instead of storing it in the memory of the machine, ought to be useful in the event of the singularity, hopefully solving what applied mathematicians working in the field of gustatory artificial intelligence or gai, generally referred to as the Soylent green problem. Burgus burger bar CEO ahuva turgan said of the launch quote, the idea that for the first time ever, a consumer can come to a meat oriented hamburger restaurant with a push of a button on an app order a juicy digitally manufactured vegan burger is nothing short of revolutionary and creates an extraordinary and unforgettable experience. Plans are in the works to roll out the robot chef in the coming months at BBB's competitors. The Burger King chain and Moses and meat Delhi with hope that soon, no one in Tel Aviv will be more than several blocks away from a delicious 3D printed personalized vegan burger and arguably nothing captures the innovation meets salivation in the startup nation spirit of this city we love so well, Tel Aviv, better than ordering vegan on your phone and getting your burger in 6 minutes untouched by human hands and I for one could not be prouder with us in the studio as a woman whose lovely writing, like a robot chef burger is nothing short of revolutionary and creates an extraordinary and unforgettable experience. Obviously, I am referring to Alison cap in summer. Allison has written for Politico, the new republic foreign policy, the Jerusalem post the jta the forward and many other of your very best papers and magazine. She's a columnist with her arts. You have heard her on NPR pri. And the BBC, and you have seen her on I 24 television and Al Jazeera TV, she has also lately for the past two weeks been the host of the haaretz weekly podcast, which is fun to listen to because the oldest rule of journalism is you can never have enough Allison. Alice in a whole day, beneath world center award for journalism recognizing excellence in Diaspora reportage, and as Simon rock our award for excellence in covering Zionism, aliyah and Israel, Alison, how are you doing? I'm doing good. You know these burger chains you speak of exist in other places in Israel besides Tel Aviv, were very Tel Aviv centric on this podcast, but you're now sitting here with a renata resident and a new Haifa resident. So you're going to have to expand your geographic horizons. Absolutely. As a matter of fact, the very first one opened in her saliya that's the place where it is, which is not Tel Aviv, but it's just to the north of talvi. But then the next 8 machines are going to all be in Tel Aviv. Okay. Then after that, it will go to the mentioned Soylent green, do you know what year it's set in? Wait, you're swelling green is heading? Yeah. I would guess 2021 or 2022. 2022, baby. We're getting there. It's so nice. It's such a people oriented thing. Also with us in the studio as a woman who perhaps unlike a 3D printed vegan burger loves and lives for human contact while like a 3D printed vegan burger, she is both good for us and good for the environment. Obviously, that woman is Sally Abbott. Sally is the resource development director and one of the elected cadre of leaders of standing together the grassroots political movement that I talked about ahead of the show that is changing the face of Israel for the better organizing Jews and Arabs locally and nationally around campaigns for peace equality and economic and social and environmental justice. Sally has written for the nation and majority magazine. She is also the co host of the podcast groundwork about Palestinians and Jews refusing to accept the status quo and working together for chain Sally. How are you doing? I'm not going to lie to you, you know, I've been better, but I'm super excited. That is a mask because she has the fruit. The good old classic flu. Yeah. Go get your shots, guys. Old fashioned old fashioned. None of those fancy new viruses to see all this. Yeah, it's time tested. As for me, my name is no Efron. I don't mean to boast. But earlier this week I was struggling to make the remote control work on the fancy new hybrid system. We bought for our student lounge and meeting area. And I couldn't get the video camera to pan or for that matter to budget at all and wrote them a charming bright, brilliant energetic student said, no, it's because you're using the projector remote to try to make the video camera move. And she gave me the right remote and after I pressed the button and saw with satisfaction that the camera was panning left and right, she said, C and then she looked me up and down and said, maybe I should mark the tour boats so that you'd be able to tell them apart, even though they are in fact really different from one another. And I'm pretty sure that I noticed that she started speaking to me more slowly, giving me time to grasp the idea that not all remote controls control everything remotely. And I'm not trying to brag that was always something my parents emphasized that I shouldn't be boastful, but I am pretty sure that when rotem looks at me and probably all the students, she sees someone really, really venerable like, say, Betty White, or maybe Yoda. Today we have three topics of nonpareil importance, but first we have this somewhat memorial matter. This week, there was a state ceremony at the national cemetery on mount herzl or the mount of remembrance as it's also known in a section given over to illegal immigrants who died on their way here in an area occupied by the graves of 22 people who died on the night of the 23rd of the Hebrew month of teve in the year 57 21 or 1961 when their boat. It's registered name was Pisces, though it was known in Hebrew as it goes or not, went down in a storm in the alborn sea. This year on the 23rd of Tibet, like every year, ministers and members of Knesset were there, the heads of organizations and dozens and dozens of relatives of those who died on that night 60 years ago. I heard about all this the other day while I was walking the dog and listening to an interview on the radio with a man named Sam benci treat. The Pisces or it goes was a small fishing boat a surplus British World War II transit boat once called price rented from a man named Thomas Scott, who ran a one man boat leasing company incorporated in Scotland, though flying the Honduran flag and operating out of Gibraltar. In 1960, Scott entered a contract with people working for the Mossad ferrying Jews the 300 kilometers from the port of Al Hussein, Morocco to Gibraltar, where the passengers would wait for another boat and sometimes a plane to take them to Israel. Although the deck of the Agos was less than 30 m², a quarter of the size of my apartment. And although the ship carried a single small rowboat as a life raft, Scott warranted it could carry 40 to 50 people, especially when the people were illegals more than half of them kids. The Mossad man agreed to pay on a per trip and per head basis with the ship leasing company providing crew an arrangement that aligned the interest of the Mossad and transporting as many refugees as possible with each pass with the interest of Thomas Scott and making as much money as possible with each trip that goes was one of three boats the Mossad got for the purpose of transporting Jews out of Morocco on the down low. Up until the 23rd of Tibet, 57 21, the ship had made a dozen successful trips ferrying a total of 333 people out of Morocco. Now, Moroccan Jews wishing to move to Israel had not always needed to do so on the down low. And the first 5 years after Israel came into being more than 40,000 moroccans moved to the country, although about one of every 16 of them ended up moving back to Morocco dissatisfied with the treatment and conditions they found here. It was only after Morocco gained independence from France in 1956 that king Muhammad V who as one of his first acts had granted his Jewish subjects civil equality outlawed immigration to Israel on the grounds that now that they were full citizens like every other Moroccan, there was no reason for Jewish moroccans to leave. In response to the ban on immigration, a zionist underground took shape and an office in the Mossad was set up to encourage moroccans to come, and to help those who chose to to make the trip, Mossad forgers were sent from Israel to Morocco to prepare a fake passports and other fake documents, Mossad organizers were sent to Morocco to organize. We can maybe get a picture of the last night of the passengers of the Agos by considering the reports of passengers on the 12 earlier successful but still harrowing voyages on that ship. Each of which also carried 40 to 50 passengers. One report came from rabbi tak Abu cassis, who was 6 in 1960 when he sailed on the Agos, quote one Shabbat the alia people came and told us the moment had come for us to leave. I did not understand how we were traveling on Shabbat. I did not understand the situation. And the concept of how saving life takes priority over Shabbat was unknown to me. My mother asked one of our neighbors to watch over her coming, her talent, apparently to hide the truth that we were fleeing. And we set out hastily with bottles of water in a single suitcase between us. After a long trip in a truck covered with a tarp, we arrived at the shore. It was late at night, and I remember the fear in the air. The original plan was to get on the ship immediately and say, also Gibraltar, but then they told us the weather was stormy and we need to wait a full week. We hid in the home of the local Muslim man who took good money for his services. After a nerve wracking week, we were told the seas were common we could go on the ship rain came down ceaselessly. The boat was tossed on the water and the adults prayed we'd arrive in peace. Suddenly there was a hole in the floor and water rushed in. My mother laid down on the breach and sealed the hole. When we got close to the shores of Gibraltar, we had no choice, but to jump into the icy water, I will never forget that fear. End quote. That was a 12th voyage of the Agos on the night of the 13th voyage, a few weeks later, the weather was again poor and the Mossad agent assigned to the immigrants, a wireless operator named Tsar fati, asked the captain, a Spaniard named Francisco marilla reynaldo to postpone the trip too, but reynaldo refused. There goes with 60 kilometers west of Melilla when it ran into a storm. It was driven onto the rocks at cape morrow nuevo and the ship's prow was split. Captain Francisco Murillo reynaldo and two of the three Spanish crew members christobal moya and Miguel Sanchez commandeered the lifeboat keeping everyone else away and sailed safely to shore. The third Spanish crew member whose name I couldn't find refused to abandon the passengers and died with them. Captain reynaldo said he had warned his passengers of the danger and still a fool heartedly hurriedly put on life belts and jumped in the sea. Many did not know how to swim, he said, and were unable to handle their life belts in the freezing water. In fact, half of the 44 passengers jumped off the deck of the Agos as it sank, and the other half were in the belly of the ship and went down with it. Save for the captain and the two crew members, no one survived that night. The bodies of the 22 who jumped into the sea were recovered by Moroccan rescue teams, those who died in the ship were never found. Among the dead were Ravi tak Abu cassis sister aliyah and her husband, yik Al Malik, and their four kids, Albert age 12, Shimon ten, Suzanne four and masuda, age two, who was recovered dead in her dead mother's embrace at sea. Reynaldo said he was unaware of the nationality of his passengers, who he said had rented the boat for quote unquote a Mediterranean cruise. Among the 43 Moroccan Jews who died that night on the Agos together with haim tar fati and the Spanish crew member, there were several families aside from the amalias. There were the edgars, nissim and Shaba and mordehai, bar mitzvah age, arza 9, Annette 7 Marcel 5 and babar two. There were the azules khanina and khana and giselle 16 chalom 9 mayor 5 and Rachel won. There was the Ben harish family, Rafael and Tamar, Jacques 27, Dina 22 Jacqueline 20 and Gabriel 14, the Ben Lulu's David and Mari, David's mother Rachel and their daughter Alice 18. There were Henry and reef gamma man and their kids Florence 13 giselle 11 heim 5. There was Daniel dadon and his boy Jackie. There were several people traveling alone, David alcove 14 yuda Dan ester liberty, 57, and ghostland aged 70. The paper is printed a picture of maybe 20 of the victims, men in jackets and ties, women and hats and hair bands scrubbed children in button down shirts. All of them looking anything, but Israeli for each of the families that perished and all the more so for the singletons, there were relatives and loved ones who, for one reason or another, were not on the boat. Gila Gutman azulai, the head of the organization of bereaved ghost families was ten when the ship went down in his 70 today. She and her 12 year old sister fanny were sent to Israel ahead of the rest of the family while her 19 year old brother David and activist and the zionist underground stayed back after them. Quote, before the catastrophe, we were 8 children and my mother, after that faithful night, only three of us were alive. Before we even reached Israel, we heard about the ship that sank, but we had no idea our family was on that voyage. My sister and I were told about the death of our family only two months later, we were at a boarding school here in Israel. And one day our uncle arrived and took us to his home and he told us the sad news, he said no one survived the cold water and that our mother together with 5 of our sisters and brothers had drowned. I burst out crying. At the end of the Shiva, when we were brought back to school, the terrible silence began, everyone at our boarding school had heard what happened to our family. And yet no one spoke with us about it, including our counselors and principal. We had just gotten news like job and no one took an interest in how we were. I understood from that that it is shameful to tell anyone I'd lost my whole family as if it happened because I was a bad girl. For 20 years, I hit my loss and didn't talk about it with anyone. It was only after I married and had my own kids who kept asking why they had no grandparents that I started to investigate my own past and I said that her brother David, who had convinced lots of Jews to make the trip, including his parents, quote, felt personally responsible for the drowning of our family. He lived with an overwhelming feeling of guilt for the rest of his life. He did not speak of it. Four years ago, just before he died, he told me that even though he had a beautiful family of his own and lots of grandchildren, he missed our mother terribly. She and our brothers and sisters were supposed to be here with us now. He told me with tears in his eyes. After the a ghost disaster, great pressure came upon the Moroccan government, which at first said that the Jews had died while trying to reenter Morocco illegally and without passports, and then the Moroccan government said that the catastrophe that quote, the veil is now lifted on zionist action in Morocco, promoting immigration to Israel. As though some smuggling ring had been uncovered, soon though, governments in Europe and North America demanded that Morocco lets use emigrate freely. If only to keep more kids from dying on rickety unseaworthy boats and freezing water in the middle of the sea in the middle of the night, 6 weeks after the disaster king Muhammad the 5th died at 51 from complications of what was expected to be a minor surgery on his nose and his son, crown prince moulay Hassan was declared king Hassan the second. Among his first official acts was rescinding the prohibition against Jewish immigration. In this way, it may be that the deaths of the passengers of the Agos are what made possible the great wave of Moroccan immigration to Israel that followed over the next year. Sam benci treat, the man I heard on the radio this week was part of that great wave, moving to Israel in 1963 when he was 25. He came with his wife on the day after they got married. Quote, we had 400 guests at our wedding. Everyone knew we were going to Israel the next day and no one gave us a gift, which we in any case would not have been able to take. In Israel, he taught school like he'd done in Morocco and then went into banking. In 1979, a friend told him that the 22 bodies, the moroccans recovered from the Agos, had been taken back to somewhere in Morocco and buried in poor, unmarked graves, never visited, and no one seemed to care much about this, except for family members who didn't know what, if anything they could do about it. In fact, then she tweeted, had never once heard there goes mentioned in Israel in the 16 years he lived here, not in the papers, not on the radio, not on TV. This did not sit right in a country with a blessed obsession for remembering every name of every person. Every Jew, anyway, who lost their lives as part of the story of this place, and it did not sit right with benchy treat that the passengers of the Agos who died trying to make their way to live their lives in Israel had not at the very least been allowed to make it here in their death. Then cheat treat wrote a letter to Monaco bagan who not long before had become prime minister and asked first that the passengers of the Agos be recognized as ma'am, illegal immigrants who died in the service of Zionism and big and agreed. Of course, big and agreed part of the revolution that big and toward a bring was celebrating people, Jews, anyway, who the old labor government had taken for granted, a law was passed, stipulating that the day there goes went down the 23rd of the vet would be the official annual day of recognition of the illegal immigration movement among North African Jews. And with that, starting with a letter to a prime minister, 20 years of silence, about 43 Moroccan Jews who died at sea trying to come to Israel end it. In 1983, Ben chit treat got himself hooked up with a French tourist group to Morocco, leaving the tour when he got to tangier and meeting up with the president of the tangier Jewish community from eisen quote was his name and threw him trying to find the graves of the passengers of the eggos. Eventually a rumor led him to tetouan, where he met a man who heard that the Jews were buried in Al Hussein. And when he got there, he found 22 numbered stones, red cot and vowed that he would see these bodies way to Jerusalem. This was the beginning of a decade long campaign, which included visits to lobby prime ministers chamier and Perez, and 39 audiences with Moroccan officials, including king Hassan the second who said that he favored exhuming the bodies of the Jews so they could be reinterred in Jerusalem. But added that it could only be done in its right time. That right time came in 1992 after you talk Robyn was elected and relations with Morocco seemed ready to improve that December 29 years ago now. Robbing spoke as the 22 recovered passengers of the Agos were finally laid to rest on mount herzl in the section dedicated to illegal immigrants who perished on their way here in an area set aside, especially for them under a sign etched in stone telling their story. This week, at the memorial service on mount herzl, there were Al Malik's Eddie's Ben harish's Ben Lulu's maman's and lots of others. Brothers and sisters and cousins and nephews and children of people who died that night on the egg goes. Minister of communication yaws handel said that much has happened since then, including this past year, a peace agreement with Morocco still handel said, quote, each of us must see himself as if he left Morocco on the deck of the it goes end quote. And the thing that I was thinking as Lucy and I finished our walk through the park and headed home is that it took decades for folks here to look at the people who died that night on the ships and to see them if they saw them at all, not as people who wanted somehow to be like us. But as people who we ought to somehow want to be like ourselves, he's a grand baruch. Today, three topics, topic one. This would not have happened a year ago as head of the united arabist oram Mansour Abbas creates a kind of frenzy when he says on stage on Mike on the record that the State of Israel is a Jewish state and is bound to stay a Jewish state next question, please. Some attack him some a pram, some say he's a lying liar, some say he's a traitor. Some say he's just made history in some say he's much ado about nothing. We'll ask what should we say and think about the Islamist leader of an Islamist party who seems unphased by Zionism topic two, Sarah as star state witness in the trial of Benjamin Netanyahu, former adviser Nier Fett's, says under oath that everything we thought we knew about saran Netanyahu is dead wrong, she's no lady Macbeth. Instead, she's smart, warm.

"Archbishop of Jaffa, who said that father Gregor helped thousands always asking the same question how can I serve? No, I'm here for lazard. Eventually, right to our administered and a third bowl of incense was produced and then something extraordinary happened priests in dark brown habits hoisted father Gregor pavlovsky's coffin and carried it out to the courtyard of the church where, according to Maul, the head of the amita ishiba in Ashton. They had been to see other people in the traditional green traditional certainly there was an astonishing sight of Christian priests on the one hand and Jews with CT and capote on the other saying cot over him. This, according to rav Maul after pavlovsky's family asked the diocese to take into account that there were people mourning father Gregor's death who because they are orthodox shoes could not enter a church and the leaders of the church agreed to hold a second service in the yard. Father Gregor pavlovsky was born 90 years ago in August 1931 in the most Poland near lublin, the name he was given at birth was Jacob's fee greener, son of Mendel and Miriam, though he was called hirsch yiddish for SV. His much older brother was high him and his somewhat older sisters were his father traded in wood and coal. The language of the house was yiddish, hirsch studied in a heter, the war started when hirsch went into first grade. And soon after that, the greener house was bombed. I am escaped, he headed to Russia and was not heard from again. The Jews of the most were forced into a ghetto and then the ghetto was liquidated. Mendel greener, here's his father, was deported and never heard from again. Then his mother and sisters were arrested caught hiding in a basement and her escaped living on the run for a while and for a time he was taken in by a Polish family who raised him as a Catholic pole. After the war, he was transferred to an orphanage, where he took his first communion in June 1945 when he was still 13. He was baptized. After high school, he went to a seminary in lublin, where, in time, he told the rector that he was Jewish, and the rector consulted the bishop, who ruled that there was no reason why a Jew could not be a priest. In 1958, hirsch now, Gregor pavlovsky was ordained, working in the diocese of lublin. In 1966 to celebrate the 1000th anniversary of Christianity in Poland, pavlovski wrote an essay telling his story in a Catholic newspaper in Kraków. And this newspaper somehow made it to Israel, where it was seen by someone in batam, who phoned up Gregor's brother, I am greener, who had survived the war in Russia, and then made aliada Haifa, who, upon hearing the story, he said, yes, this is my brother. With the discovery that his brother was in Israel, a realization dawned on Gregor pavlovsky that may be his place too, was in Israel. He consulted with father Daniel rufin, another Polish Jew who became a priest in the carmelite order and moved to Israel trying to do so at first under the law of return until in 1962 Israel Supreme Court ruled four to one that a Jew becoming a cleric of another religion forfeited his right for automatic Israeli citizenship in time, pavlovski decided to come before he did though he had unfinished business in Poland. He decided to build a monument in his beta Poland near where his mother and sisters were murdered, and to mark somehow the mass graves there. And this became his project, after raising money and convincing Polish bureaucrats, pavlovski built his memorial at the old Jewish cemetery in his bita with an inscription in Polish and Hebrew reading in part to the eternal memory of our dear parents Mendel son of zev and Miriam, daughter of Isaac greener of blessed memory and our sisters shindell and Sarah of blessed memory and also of all the Jews murdered and buried in this cemetery in the month of kislev 57 O three by the Nazi murderers and profane of God's commandments with gratitude to God for being saved. We established this monument father Gregor pavlovski, Jacob SV greener Poland and highland greener, Israel. Abutting the mass grave father pavlovski, who was then in his mid 30s bought a burial plot for himself already than having made to his specifications a headstone that reads, quote, father, Gregor pavlovsky, Jacobs fee greener, son of Mendel and Miriam a blessed memory. I abandoned my family in order to save my life at the time of the show. They came to take us for extermination. My life I saved and I've consecrated it to the service of God and humanity. I've returned them to this place where they were murdered for the sanctification of God's name made their souls beset in eternal life. With that done father Gregor moved in 1970 to Israel. He said, quote, my place is here among the Jewish people. I sense the call to common serve Christians living in my country, his country being Israel, the state of the Jews. Father, Gregor was welcomed that load airport by father Daniel rufin and my father, Alfred delmi, a priest in Saint Peter's and by his brother haim and by nieces and nephews after taking a Hebrew upan in batam, he agreed to replace father Alfred at Saint Peter's father Gregor met rob shalom malloy when Maul was leading a trip to Poland and noticed his empty grave at the memorial site in east beta and learned his story and got his number and phoned him saying, quote, I am standing at your grave, will you tell my students your story, then putting the priest on speaker? So the Shiva kids could hear. Later, rob Maul brought father Gregor a mazza for his home in yafo, taking the keeper off his own head and putting it on the priests as he said the prayer for fixing a mizu on one's door frame. Father Gregor once wrote, quote, I did not want to live a lie. I did not want to deny my roots. My mother, my father, my people, I want to be truthful, thus I have a homeland and that is Poland, and I belong to the Polish people. However, I have a nation that is first. The Jewish people, I was circumcised on the 8th day and I belong. I belong both to Poland and to Israel. I can not speak against polls because they saved me and I can not speak against Jews because I am one of them end quote. And that is how it happened that last week exactly as Martin davidovich's remains were being flown from Prague to Jerusalem so they could be buried on mount herzl in a ceremony attended by nieces and nephews from around the world 73 years after David Ovid was killed in a training accident in the Czech brigade, which he joined to become an Israeli paratrooper after surviving Auschwitz. Father Gregor pavlovsky's body was flown from Jaffa to his bitter, where yesterday, as we record, he was laid to rest in a grave he acquired 55 years ago under a stone he bought and had carved with an epitaph he wrote in a ceremony attended by old friends and colleagues and also by a delegation of kids from the ami ishiba and Ashton and their rabbi, raf shalom maloo, who flew from Israel to Poland to say kaddish over father Gregor's grave as he wanted them to do. And as they promised to do each year from now forward stretching toward eternity, it is easy to think that people are one thing or another. But often we aren't, as we saw last week with Martin davidovich and Gregor pavlovsky, Jacob's feet here, greener, who in death as in life shuffled and shuddered to find their place in a world complicated by cruelty and chance and a world that also blessedly holds so many different answers to the question how can I serve? He's ikram, baruch. Today, two topics, both of which, in a way, together ask the larger question of what and how the Knesset is doing in this week when crucially as we speak a budget bill is being debated that must pass for this Knesset to survive. The first topic you say corruption as though it were a bad thing as the coalition government approves almost 3 billion new Israeli shekels in quote unquote coalition funding or earmarks to this or that pet cause of the 61 members of the coalition from aid to addicts to the academy for the Hebrew language to neutering stray cats. And all sorts of other good causes, but which allocations foreign minister and alternate prime minister la pee just last year called corruption and the workings of thieves in the night should members of canessa be able to hand out large sums of government funds to favorite causes will ask. And the second topic, death taxes and traffic as one of the pigovian taxes contained in the budget being debated as I speak is a congestion tax on all cars and trucks coming into Tel Aviv, which will cost commuters from Allison's round Ana up to 800 new Israeli shekels a month, which is a lot. Someday inshallah, there will be a good commuter train, but until there is is it fair to charge people lots of money for not taking the train that does not yet exist. And for our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters in our extra special special extra discussion, the link to which you can find in our show notes on your podcast app or at Patreon dot com slash promised podcast on the World Wide Web, we discuss an interesting new poll that finds that if elections were held today, the Likud would grow still stronger to 36 seats, but that neither today's coalition nor today's opposition would be able to form a government. What does this poll tell us about where we are today and what it is to tell us about where we might beat tomorrow? But before we get to any of that, you lucky people listen to this..

"Real juice, blue raspberry with real juice, cherry with real juice, cherries, the bomb, peach perfect, red bang with real juice, sour orange and sugar free cherry limeade. And I know that you are thinking what I am thinking, that's all good and well, but this list is clearly not comprehensive. For instance, the 7 11 site lists slurpee flavors like pink think, kissing cousins, gully washer and sticky icky. Are these flavors kosher? Will we even get sticky icky slurpees in the 7 11 and these enough center? Apparently, only time will tell. And arguably nothing captures the cool in every sense, cosmopolitanism and the easy familiarity with the best of international culture of this city we love so well, Tel Aviv, better than the good news that very soon, like the most refined cultural in New York, Winnipeg, Sydney and Hong Kong, our cups two shall runneth over with somewhat frozen, somewhat carbonated red bang with real juice, though maybe not strawberry twizzler and monster black because here in Tel Aviv, it can truly be said that we drink in life in big gulps with us in the studio is a woman who's marvelous prose is not unlike a slurpee effervescent sparkling with life and full of froth and fizz. Obviously, I am talking about Allison Kaplan summer Allison has written for Politico, the new republic foreign policy, the Jerusalem post, the JJ the forward and many other of your very best papers and magazine, she is a columnist with her arts. You have heard her on mpr PRI in the BBC. And you have seen her on I 24 television and Al Jazeera TV, Alison holds a beneath world center award for journalism recognizing excellence in Diaspora reportage and a Simon rock our award for excellence in covering Zionism Ali and Israel Alice and how you doing? So if you're a Broadway nerd like me, you hear 7 11 and slurpees and you immediately think of the iconic musical heathers, which was made after the movie, in which the psychopathic hero named JD who was played by Christian Slater in the movie, sings an ode to 7 11s and to drinking slurpees in the show. He travels around all over the country after his mom dies, and the only place he finds comfort is in 7 11 and he sings from Las Vegas to Boston linoleum aisles that I love to get lost in. I pray at my altar of slush. Yeah, I live for that sweet frozen rush. Freeze your brain sucking that straw get lost in the pain. Happiness comes when everything numbs who needs cocaine. Use your brain. Ah, the music of the muses, that's beautiful. I didn't know about that. I loved the movie and this is so for me. Also with us in the studio is a man who likes 7 11 is always there for you when you need them 24 6, and in his case, if you really need him, he'll help you out on that 7th day too. That man is Don federman. Don is the director of the Mariah fund in Israel and the director of the Israel center for educational innovation. He is also the genius behind a series of podcast theater productions of autobiographical monologues called federman's one man show, which you can find wherever find podcasts are pervade Don how are you doing? Well, I'm going to stay on the theater theme because when I was back in my theater days, my friend, Anthony, and itinerant actor, like most of us worked at 7 11, and I used to visit him at three a.m. for the weekly hold up. You know, so that was we had a set date. Now don't you think 7 11 is like a subconscious suggestion for all of us to be shooting craps? I'm going to open a rival train called snake eyes. We'll see how that one does. As for me, my name is no Efron, and I don't mean to boast. But I was once beaten up at the 7 11 over there on Amherst avenue in Wheaton, Maryland when I was ten years old, new to the area and I biked over. In fact, to get me a slurpee, and there were some tough kids in front. At the time, I estimated their ages to be maybe 18, maybe 20, maybe 40, though in retrospect, they were probably 13 and one of them said kid give us your money. And I said, no, I'm going to get a slurpee after which a spirited disagreement arose at the end of which we all agreed that I would rather give them my money than to get punched yet again. And I biked home penniless and crying all the way. And I am not bragging. That is just not the way that my folks raised me. I don't know about you. But while everyone loves slurpees, how many people have actually sacrificed for slurpees as I have? Today, we will discuss three topics of transcendent importance, but first we have a matter that we're following with alert interesting great concern. As part of an occasional series that we call the promised podcast, ponders the power and pathos of exhumation and posthumous repatriation. As we record on the morning of Thursday, October 28th, 2021, the 22nd of cash Evan, 57, 82, dozens of relatives alongside a delegation of worthy's representing the IDF and Israel's government are laying to rest in the military cemetery on mount herzl, private Martin davidovich, Martin davidovich would be 94 today if he were still alive. He was born in 1927, exactly two days before my mother in the event. In a town called de novo, then in Czechoslovakia now in the Ukraine, one of 7 kids four boys and three girls in a family that told seltzer with a beer operation on the side. He studied in a heter, but when he was old enough, he joined Hashimoto's ear. When Czechoslovakia was dissolved in 1938, de novo became part of Hungary and when Hungary was taken by the Nazis in 1944, davidovich was sent to mouth housing where he worked as a tailor and then to Auschwitz after the war, davidovich went home to learn that his parents and one of his brothers David fee and two of his sisters rift and Miriam were dead, but two of his brothers laser and naftali and one of his sisters hay been or Blanca survived with nothing to keep him at home. Martin davidovich wandered westward like so many Jewish kids alone after Auschwitz and other such places. And he joined a zionist group Hanoi and knocked around planning to move when he could to a Jewish Palestine where Jews were at the time forbidden by the Brits to enter. In July, 1948, just before his 21st birthday, davidovich volunteered for something called the Czech brigade. The check brigade was the idea of a small group of Czech Jews who fought with the Nazis. Most as part of the Soviet Army, some as partisans, and they now had the idea of training Jewish survivors in the Jewish brigade that when their training was done with travel to Palestine to fight in the war of independence, the men behind the Czech brigade presented their idea to Ehud abriel the envoy to Prague of the provisional Jewish government in Palestine and also to check foreign minister Jan masaryk, who had always done what he could to help those trying to set up a Jewish state. For instance, signing in January 1948, a deal with Ariel to bring 5000 guns and 5 million bullets to Jews in Palestine, eventually check planes came to after maserak died in March, the leaders of Czechoslovakia kept on supporting the provisional Jewish government in Palestine. And that is how it happened that the check brigade got on the down low, check uniforms, check weapons. The use of check bases and some of the commanders of the brigade coming from Czechoslovakia with others coming from the issue from Jewish Palestine. The head of the brigade was high in gori, the great poet novelist and journalist who died just a couple of years ago in 2018. The brigade took up residence in barracks and training grounds that had been built by Nazis just north of Prague. Gory said, quote, I'm the gates of the camp. There was an inscription, fear is the worst crime. Everything was highly secret. The secrecy was such that outside the camp, it was forbidden even to speak in any language. When we went swimming in a nearby Lake, we were forbidden to utter a word. It was forbidden to photograph there is not a single picture of us there. There were misunderstandings. There were people who had been through the Holocaust on the one hand, and people who had fought the Nazis on the other hand, there was no common language, not everyone knew Hebrew, not everyone in new English, but there were lovely moments of meeting. Another of these Israelis there for training was yossi Agassi, who later went on to study philosophy of science under Carl popper at the London school of economics and married the granddaughter of Martin buber Judith boober Agassi and who supervised the dissertation of my beloved dissertation supervisor Monaco fish, and who once took over a keynote session of a conference I was in charge of denouncing all of us in the most vicious way for teaching our students heidegger, whom Agassi said was an unreformed Nazi, we whitewashed every new academic year of fresh in Israel, had we no shame when I was 18 in Israel for the year with young Judea, our Madrid Ronnie kahana now harad Roni kahana brought hi I'm gory to talk to us and he told us how walking the streets of Tel Aviv on evenings in the 1950s, one could not escape whales coming from apartment windows open to the cooling air. He said, survivors grew agitated as the sun went down, reliving horrors and loss that were then only a decade old and their screams were the dusk music of the city street. Gory added, none of this was ever mentioned during the day. And that image of the solitude of suffering is never left me, but I had no idea no idea of how much gory had seen. It was his reporting of the ackman trial for a now long defunct labor left paper called la mer havre that captured the trial best. He wrote of the parade of testimonies from the planet Auschwitz on display in Jerusalem that he worried that they would, quote, turn us all to stone. Gory was 25 in Prague trying to make a group of survivors and partisans and Soviet soldiers and provincial kids from Palestine into a paratroopers unit. Israel was then two months old under attack and very much in need of that paratroopers unit. And that is when the tragedy happened as part of exercise is one of the Czech commanders thinking his gun was empty, shot 20 year old Martin de vinovich, killing on the spot, this kid who had survived Auschwitz and all the rest. The body was brought to the new Jewish cemetery in Prague and buried. Gory later wrote in his book until the sunrise quote, I can not escape the image of that young man of ours, Martin davidovich, who was killed by the bullet of one of the Czech commanders. He was buried in secret, we called terrible tragedies like those training accidents when Martin davidovich died his brother enough Holly was also in the Czech brigade. He was the only family at davidovich's secret burial in Prague. And he and later moved to Haifa and then later to America. High avena or Blanca davidovich moved to the states too, eventually settling in Muncie. Already in 1948, according to archival documents that I have not myself seen, members of the quote unquote parachuting instructors team of the Czech brigade asked that the newly formed IDF recognized Martin davidovich as the first Israeli paratrooper ever to fall in the line of duty. But davidovich was not a citizen and there was a war to be fought. One of davidovich's friends from the brigade, a writer named yitzhak greenwald, who returned to Israel and served as a paratrooper published in Hebrew in account of davidovich and spent years collecting documents and petitioning the IDF. Finally, more than 50 years later, in 2001, davidovich was recognized as an IDF soldier at the rank of private, and in fact, as the first IDF soldier in his unit to die in uniform, though his was not an IDF uniform. Back then davidovich is surviving sister and brothers disagreed about whether Martin should be brought to Israel before she died though Blanca Friedman nay davidovich, told her daughter iris Friedman that she wished for Martin to be interred in Jerusalem. Eris Friedman told reporters that she visited Martin davidovich's grave in Prague for the first time in 2013. She said, quote, I felt strong vibrations. I felt that Martin's spirit was sending me a message. I went to my rabbi from habad in a long journey began. As I am saying these words, that long journey is ending this past Monday after three years of negotiating with the checks, a delegation of generals rabbis and at least one of David over his nephew's exhumed Martin davidovich flew his remains to Israel and right now with 60 of davidovich's relatives from all around the world in attendance, he is receiving a military funeral in a military cemetery in a country he trained to fight for and the country he died for, though he never lived to see it. He's a Robert. Today, three topics, topic one, burdens of proof as minister of defense Benny Gantz outlaws 6 Palestinian human rights organizations or depending on how you see it 6 quote unquote human rights organizations on the ground that they funnel money and support to the Popular Front for the liberation of Palestine, which has long been stipulated a terrorist organization. Guns did this as brilliant measured mild and wise political analysts due to Ari gross father of two, tweeted, quote, without offering a shred of concrete evidence to the public. And many others believe, of course, at the very fact that he banned the groups is all the evidence you need to see that they deserve to be banned, causing many to how and some like me to admit that maybe I kind of buy it sort of. We'll talk about it and whether I am more a knife or an idiot, though people, people, it doesn't have to be one or the other. Topic two, a great deal of new green as ahead of the cop 26 international climate change extravaganza, beginning tomorrow, as we record in Glasgow, Israel's cabinet approved a hundred count them hundred point plan to green up lots of things here. We've scrutinized the plan and we'll ask whether the whole, maybe doesn't turn out to be less than the sum of its 100 parts and topic three, breathing, easy, as Israel is experiencing a life threatening shortage of ready to be transplanted lungs for the COVID afflicted patients who need them. And one of the country's greatest transplant experts proposes that replacement lungs be denied to patients who chose not to get vaccinated until everyone who chose to get vaccinated gets the organ they need. This is based on a principle he calls reciprocal altruism, will wonder whether morality dictates that we give preference to the vaccinated or prohibits us from giving preference to the vaccinated or maybe something in between and for our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, we will discuss a photo es in The New York Times by two journalists who traveled to Israel north to south over a week and a half to learn that Israel is quote an unsolvable jigsaw puzzle a collection of incompatible factions each with its own priorities, grievances, and history. To which at least some respond in print and pixels, dudes, I think you may be missing something. We'll try first to make heads of the essay and then time permitting tales. But before we get to any of that, you lucky people listen to this..
