Pro-Palestinian activists, antisemitic Democratic politicians, and others allied with anti-Israel and racist elements are coalescing into a diverse anti-Jewish and anti-Israel movement. Even now, they are mapping the names and addresses of Jewish organizations and individuals. The label “Zionist” is becoming a trigger for exclusion and retaliation. Is this a prelude to a new Kishinev, a new Farhud, a new Kristallnacht in America? Holocaust education leader Yossie Hollander and civil rights attorney and Holocaust refugee Nathan Lewin join Edwin.

A few years ago, people would have laughed at those who spoke of a Second Civil War. Today, no one is laughing. More and more people are asking if it is possible—both in public and in private. Unlike the War Between the States, we might see a well-armed, and more often street-armed, splotchy civil war that pits tribe against tribe, interest against interest, jurisdiction against jurisdiction, state against state, urban against rural, military group against military group, and Red against Blue. What can accelerate it? What can slow it down? Democratic political strategist Josh Block and civil rights attorney Nathan Lewin join Edwin.

The notorious camps of Nazi Germany have been seared into memory. But it was America that innovated the first concentration camps; first during the US Civil War, and then again in WWI and WWII. Andersonville, Heart Mountain, Tule Lake, and Manzanar will live in infamy. Under what circumstances might we see another camp arise in the United States? Historian Chris Lovett joins Edwin for camps history and analysis, and constitutional law expert Nathan Lewin joins Edwin to discuss the end of the B&J's boycott and its ensuing lawsuit.

Biden’s new “Misinformation Governance Board.” Musk and Twitter. Bezos and The Washington Post. The legacy media. Hunter’s laptop. The First Amendment. The Harvard Crimson. The limits. The license. The laws. Constitutional attorneys Nathan Lewin and Alan Dershowitz join Edwin—with nothing held back.

On Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, Edwin asks: Can it happen again? What would it take—and when? International Holocaust education leader Yossie Hollander, Wiesenthal Center Dean Rabbi Abraham Cooper, and civil rights attorney and Holocaust refugee Nathan Lewin join Edwin.

A major lawsuit against Ben & Jerry’s and Unilever for their anti-Jewish boycott has been filed by the Israeli franchisee.

Ben & Jerry’s–Israel president Avi Zinger and his attorneys Marc Zell, Alyza Lewin, and Nathan Lewin join Edwin with exclusive details.

Third-grade students, including Jewish kids, at Watkins Elementary School in Washington DC were allegedly instructed by a staff member to reenact scenes from the Holocaust, including gassing, digging ditches for bodies, and shootings. Antisemitic remarks were also reported. What the hell has happened? What the hell is happening? Is this a mere school mishap to be regretted … or criminal child abuse to be prosecuted? A stand will must now be taken. Famed civil rights attorney Nathan Lewin, Washington DC JCRC associate director Guila Siegel, and StandWithUs legal director Yael Lerman join Edwin.

 

American Jews are being increasingly afflicted by the deliberate scheduling of Jewish policy issues on sabbaths and holidays—boycotts, anti-Israel measures, pro-BDS resolutions, and academic requirements. The Burlington City Council set the abuse standard when it took up an anti-Israel resolution during the Days of Awe—just two days before Yom Kippur. Civil rights champion attorney Nathan Lewin and Simon Wiesenthal Center associate dean Rabbi Abraham Cooper join Edwin.

The launch of the new, critically acclaimed, and fast-selling book Values That Shape the World by Faye Lincoln. Her work forces us to ask how society got here—and where we are going. Esteemed Rabbi Elie Abadie from Dubai, famed constitutional attorney Nathan Lewin, and  Hudson Institute foreign policy fellow Josh Block join Edwin and the author to confront the issues.

When Ben & Jerry’s announced its BDS-allied boycott of Jews in Judea and Samaria and probably all of Israel, it set off a global firestorm of backlash: counterboycotts, legal actions by state authorities, and store shelf removals. The trademark has even been seized in Israel. Famed civil rights attorney Nathan Lewin, legal scholar Alan Dershowitz, top lawfare litigator Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, who seized Ben & Jerry’s Israeli trademark, as well as crisis manager Juda Engelmeyer join Edwin.
