After the establishment of Israel, Arab nations stripped their Jewish citizens of their property, funds, and citizenship, and expelled them. Will this happen next in Dagestan? Moscow? New York City?

Rabbi Elie Abadie and ZOA-MI President Sheldon Freilich join Edwin for another look at the horrid possibilities, Rabbi Manes Kogan provides additional reporting, and Nathan Lewin updates us on the lawsuit recently filed by the Brandeis Center against UC Berkeley.

Jewish people across the world have long wondered when and where the next Kishinev, Kristallnacht, or Farhud would occur. The answer (as we correctly speculated during our June 2023 Farhud Remembrance show) was Israel. It happened on October 7, 2023, as Israelis were wrapping up their Sukkot celebrations. Some 2,000 Hamas fighters attacked, killing and raping innocent civilians, kidnapping grandmothers and children, and live-streaming their barbarous acts. Violent pro-Palestinian—and outright pro-Hamas—demonstrations have erupted everywhere, from campuses to streets. Jews across America are beginning to ask the unthinkable question and ponder the unthinkable prospect: can it happen again—this time in America?

Holocaust education leader Yossie Hollander, eminent civil rights attorney Nathan Lewin, and crusading Brandeis Center President Alyza Lewin join Edwin for part three of the discussion that nobody ever wanted to have (part one; part two), with special reports by Alan Dershowitz and Juda Engelmayer.

On October 7, 1,000 Hamas terrorists invaded Israel. Atrocities ensued against innocent civilian men, women, and children. Scores were abducted into Gaza. Israel has declared war and promised to utterly destroy Hamas and its infrastructure with an “unprecedented response.”

Yossie Hollander, Nathan Lewin, and Alex Traiman join Edwin, with additional reports from John Hajjar, Walid Phares, Marina Rosenberg, and Dor Weiss.

Judicial reform is tearing Israel apart—to the point of possible civil war. Outside forces and media are continuously stoking the flames.

Legal experts Avi Bell, Alan Dershowitz, and Nathan Lewin plus history scholar Sam Edelman join Edwin to uncover the facts and spell out exactly what's at stake.

Who shall receive—and who shall pay?
What is proper justice for injustice?

For Slavery, Native Americans, Japanese Americans, Eugenics Victims, and many others. Famed constitutional and civil rights attorneys Nathan Lewin and Alan Dershowitz plus other voices join Edwin to begin untangling one of the thorniest and most crying issues of our day.

Pro-Palestinian activists, antisemitic politicians and celebrities, and other racist elements are coalescing into a diverse anti-Jewish and anti-Israel movement. Jewish locations are mapped and publicized, Berkeley Law School has nine “no-go” zones for pro-Israel speakers, synagogues are vandalized, and Jews are threatened and assaulted every day, coast to coast. The term “Zionist” is often a trigger for exclusion and retaliation. Is a new Kishinev, Farhud, or Kristallnacht coming to America? Holocaust education leader Yossie Hollander and eminent civil rights attorney Nathan Lewin join Edwin again for Part II of the discussion that nobody wants to have.

Pro-Palestinian activists, antisemitic Progressive Party politicians, and other racist elements are coalescing into a diverse anti-Jewish and anti-Israel movement. Even now, they map 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 associated lawsuit.

Biden’s new “Misinformation Governance Board.” Musk and X/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.
