Listen on

Episode notes

What’s it like to be left-wing in an aspiring ethnostate?

Israel has swung hard to the right in the last few decades, with self-described fascists now in government. But a left remains, calling not just for a ceasefire in the war on Gaza, but for the end to the apartheid regime as a whole. What power do they have?

Comedian and activist Noam Shuster-Eliassi and +972 Magazine journalist Haggai Matar talk to Rivkah Brown about the terrifying consequences of resistance to the Israeli state, how Jewish ethnic minorities are treated within Israel, and how to survive in a society that treats ‘leftist’ as a slur.
