3) APN has lots of
great "PeaceCasts"to help you stay informed on pertinent issues. Their latest is
The Occupation and the Crisis of Israeli Liberalism: An interview with Menachem Mautner.
Mautner is a Professor of Comparative Civil Law and Jurisprudence at the Tel Aviv University's Faculty of Law. In this episode he explains why he wrote two recently-published books that are unrelated to his academic expertise: a dystopian novel that predicts the devastation that Mautner believes will lead to Middle East peace, and a book analyzing the crisis of Israeli liberalism.
