Buenos Dias aus Mallorca und Shalom nach Israel. Wir freuen uns euch zur brandneuen Folge FLUGMODUS begrüßen zu können. Seid gespannt auf unsere bisher längste und umfangreichste Folge. Wir fliegen von oben nach unten und rechts nach links, wie wir Fachleute sagen... einem kurzen Abstecher nach Amsterdam folgt eine Bestandsaufnahme in München und Frankfurt und geht anschließend nahtlos über, zum Anflug auf Israel. Was es bei so einem langen Kurzstreckenflug (höhö) alles zu beachten gilt und was Tel Aviv so einzigartig schön und gleichzeitig ungreifbar macht, versuchen wir in dieser Folge zu klären. Außerdem: Zehn Fragen aus dem Urlaub an den Daheimgebliebenen und ganz viel mathematisches Halbwissen für zu Hause!

Where do Israeli intended parents go to for surrogacy? What specific hurdles do they have to overcome? Is surrogacy widely available within Israel? And what is so drastically different between the Israeli approach to genetic parentage -- whether through surrogacy or through reproduction technologies -- and the American one? Victoria Gelfand (born and raised in Moscow, immigrated to Israel in her teens, educated in Tel Aviv and admitted to the Israeli bar in 2003) was the first attorney to provide legal assistance to Israeli couples and singles with respect to surrogacy procedures abroad back in 2006. In 2007, she achieved first recognition of surrogacy procedures carried out in India by the Israeli Ministry of Internal Affairs, creating a process that has since been used for all – well over two thousand – babies born to Israeli intended parents via surrogacy abroad. In 2008 she started her own practice which specializes exclusively on family formation and fertility law, and has won various precedential cases related to foreign surrogacy for Israeli intended parents. Victoria Gelfand, Law Offices is the only law firm outside North America which is a member of all three major US-based professional groups and societies in the field: the ABA, the AAAA, and SEEDS. Listen to Victoria as she discusses with Ellen and Jenn: • Her career path to law and transition to specializing in surrogacy and family formation. • Israeli law prohibiting same sex couples from building their family through surrogacy within the country. • Finding a loophole for same sex couples to become parents – through surrogacy outside the country. • The importance of genetic and biological connections in Israel. • Israeli's interesting post-mortem conception cases. • The prohibition against known sperm donors in Israel.

A chef and baker, Erez Komarovsky is considered the godfather of Israeli baking and one of Israel's most prominent culinary figures. Erez is one part of "Erez and Hanan" the high-end catering company, head of the “Galilean Cooking School” in Matat, founder of the legendary "Lehem Erez" and the author of many cookbooks. He partakes in special culinary projects and is a mentor and judge on "Game of Chefs", a cooking competition show currently broadcast on Israel's Channel 13. Over a decade ago, Erez moved his residence from Tel Aviv to Mitzpe Matat, in the Galilee. His connection to the land and the opportunities created for him by nature on a daily basis were an invitation to a new phase of creation. His culinary fingerprint consists of plenty of organic vegetables freshly picked from the garden beds he cultivates with dedication, free range Galilean meat and poultry, and breads and focaccias baked in succession in his tabun clay oven. All of these distinguish Erez's Galilean culinary identity. On this episode of What's Burning, Erez Komarovsky's chat with Host Mitchell Davis includes conversation around Israel's idiosyncratic culinary scene, recognizing food comes from nature not suppliers and bringing one's personality to an onion.

Ben Caspit speaks this week with Yarden Vatikay, the former director of the national information directorate in the prime minister's office. The senior strategic adviser speaks about the killing of Al Jazeera correspondent Shireen Abu Akleh and the ensuing media storm Israel found itself in the midst of, noting that "being in the middle of a storm over international public opinion is not new for Israel. It is somewhat of a routine for the country, to move from a crisis to a crisis, though each crisis is different." Vatikay argues that Israel responded quickly and accurately when it proposed to the Palestinians to hold a joint investigation over Abu Akleh's death.

“If I thought that I was going to win the Pulitzer for a book called ‘The Netanyahus' I would have to be crazy to want to be in Israel when that happened,” novelist Joshua Cohen tells host Allison Kaplan Sommer on Haaretz Weekly, shortly after arriving in Israel for the Jerusalem International Book Forum and Writers Festival.  In the interview, recorded in Tel Aviv days after he got the news, Cohen says he is still in shock that he had won the biggest literary prize in the United States for a novel “that has characters in it that most Americans can't pronounce their names.” Cohen's part-historical, part-fictional satire is subtitled “An Account of a Minor and Ultimately Even Negligible Episode in the History of a Very Famous Family.” Its main character is the brilliant but embittered Prof. Benzion Netanyahu, best-known today as the father of Israel's longest-serving prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.  As he was writing, Cohen says, he “kept on thinking of the line in ‘The Big Lebowski' where the Dude says to Walter: ‘You're not wrong, you're just an asshole.' And that was Benzion Netanyahu." See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Tel Aviv fashion is cool. It also keeps you cool. The star of the Torah is not Abraham, Moshe, or even God, but rather, the Law. We sometimes forget how nice it is to have Law. Walter Benjamin would agree that the Law of the Torah was (partially) designed to set us off from the primitive world. Although Tel Aviv is often considered the new Babylon, its no-sweat fashion is downright priestly.

Kyle breaks down the Israeli occupation forces' brutal killing of Al Jazeera's Shireen Abu Akleh during a raid on the Jenin refugee camp. Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and his apartheid regime attempted to blame the shooting on Palestinian gunmen, this absurd claim was immediately debunked by Israel's top human rights organization. The bullet that was lodged in Abu Akleh's brain was of a type used by the Israeli military. Washington has predictably issued cheap, tepid condolences and has expressed support for an investigation that is to be partly led by Tel Aviv. The reaction to the murder highlights the U.S. government's double standards and the mainstream press' rank hypocrisy. Connor discusses a hawkish Senate motion passed by a bipartisan majority that, though non-binding, sends a powerful message to the Joe Biden administration and Tehran that any attempted return to the deal will face insurmountable opposition. The supporters of the motion advocate for the much of the same “longer and stronger” measures the Trump administration demanded previously including putting Iran's ballistic missiles on the table and refusing to lift the IRGC's Foreign Terrorist Organization designation.

Dennis connects via Zoom with Toren Heymann and Jonathan Agassi, the Tel Aviv, Israel-based filmmaker and subject of the new documentary Jonathan Agassi Saved My Life. The film documents about the rags-to-riches-to rags odyssey of Israeli porn performer Jonathan Agassi who rose to prominence in  films like Men Of Israel, Trapped In The Game and Jonathan Agassi Goes Raw, all from director Michael Lucas. Jonathan talks about how he got into porn, the power that came with changing his name and the parts of the business that he loved the most, from having sex with beautiful men to buying lots of shoes. He also talks about his descent into drug use, the first time he tried crystal, how he'd disappear for weeks at a time, and his decision to to let Tomer film him using drugs on camera. He also recalls showing up to early Q & As of the documentary high on drugs and how watching the film and seeing himself use drugs on camera inspired him to get sober. Tomer talks about what drew him to Jonathan as a subject, the moments in the process where he knew he was making a much more serious and intense film than the porn romp he started making and the challenge of getting mainstream audiences to treat this as they would any other acclaimed, award-winning documentary. Other topics include: the deeo relationship Jonathan has with his mother that's at the heart of the film, the Pride Festival where Jonathan first realized the power of his sex appeal, why he loved attending the Hustlaball in Berlin, taking inspiration from Madonna's Sex book, Jonathan's current job working in a supermarket where he often gets recognized by fans of his porn and the warning from Oprah that went unheeded. www.heymannfilms.com

Mais avec l'autonomie hydrique permise par le recyclage des eaux usées, l'irrigation au goutte à goutte et surtout le dessalement de l'eau de mer, apparaît un nouveau phénomène lié aux accords d'Abraham signés entre Israël et plusieurs pays arabes. De notre correspondant à Jérusalem, Une goutte dans l'immensité de la mer Méditerranée, mais un grand pas en avant dans une nouvelle direction pour Israël. Après avoir depuis le début de son existence puisé abondamment dans le lac de Tibériade, c'est autour des années 2000 que les dirigeants israéliens ont dû revoir leur copie.    « Le changement climatique a obligé le gouvernement à prendre deux mesures d'urgence, explique Max Semory, spécialiste des questions d'eau. Il a fallu recycler toute l'eau consommée et puiser puis dessaler l'eau de mer aux ressources inépuisables, évidemment. » Désormais, 85% des eaux usées sont recyclées et près de 80% de l'eau potable consommée en Israël est fourni par cinq usines de dessalement de l'eau de mer. À elle seule, l'usine de Soreq, au sud de Tel Aviv, répond pratiquement aux besoins des deux millions d'habitants de cette zone métropolitaine. Désormais aussi, de l'eau est acheminée en sens inverse : pour renflouer le lac de Tibériade situé à quelque 215 mètres en dessous du niveau de la mer. L'eau, vecteur de paix ou de conflit  Une réussite qui s'accompagne d'un prix. L'eau et la politique sont étroitement entremêlées dans cette région du monde. « La situation, ici, est exacerbée, car le contexte géopolitique est très compliqué. Il y a actuellement plusieurs initiatives qui permettraient d'utiliser l'eau comme vecteur de paix plutôt qu'un catalyseur de conflits », observe Patricia Hugonin, consultante Eau et Environnement. Principales victimes de cette tension : des communautés bédouines dont les villages non reconnus ne sont pas raccordés au réseau d'eau national. Et de nombreux points de friction avec les voisins palestiniens en Cisjordanie et à Gaza. Mais Israël saisit au bond la nouvelle situation qui a été créée ces dernières années pour tenter une nouvelle approche. « L'autonomie hydrique d'Israël lui permet aujourd'hui de déployer toute une diplomatie dans la région, un leadership technologique. Les accords d'Abraham ont libéré un certain nombre d'opportunités économiques qui n'existaient pas avant », note Anne Baer, présidente d'Ikare Innovation et experte en Climat Tech. C'est la diplomatie du « swap », la forme moderne du troc. « Ce Green Blue deal porte sur l'échange entre près de 20% des besoins annuels de la Jordanie (…) qui elle, mettrait à disposition des champs solaires, pour permettre à Israël de tenir ses engagements », ajoute Anne Baer.  À Glasgow lors de la COP26, le Premier ministre israélien Naftali Bennett avait pris l'engagement de réduire à zéro les effets de gaz à effet de serre d'ici 2050. Un objectif ambitieux. ► À lire aussi :  De l'énergie solaire contre de l'eau: l'accord controversé entre Israël et la Jordanie L'État d'Israël va doubler sa quantité d'eau fournie à la Jordanie

Ben Caspit speaks this week with Dani Dayan, the chairman of Yad Vashem, Israel's Holocaust memorial. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov caused a diplomatic incident with Israel, Ukraine and the Jewish world last week when he claimed that Hitler had Jewish roots. For Dayan, the conspiracy theory advanced by Lavrov was antisemitic by any account. The Yad Vashem head expresses his satisfaction over the reported apology made by Russian President Vladimir Putin for Lavrov's words. Still, he regrets that the apology was not included in the readout published by the Kremlin after Putin's talks with Prime Minister Naftali Bennett. "What Lavrov said is what we call an inversion of the Holocaust. The victims suddenly become part, and even the head, of the perpetrators. And this is classic antisemitism."See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Acclaimed journalist and filmmaker John Pilger on the changes that have come over Palestine since the making of his film ‘Palestine is Still the Issue', released in 1974 & 2002. We will start by screening the film. The past two decades have seen an extreme turn to the right in Israeli politics with grave consequences for Palestine and its quest for independence, including four major Israeli attacks against Gaza. Pilger and Israeli historian Ilan Pappé, who appeared in the 2002 film, will discuss the worsening situation over the decades for Palestinians and where the future of Palestine and Israeli is headed. Pappé is the author of many books, including ‘The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine', in which he documents that ethnic cleansing was a long-standing Zionist goal that was planned in detail by Ben-Gurion in the Red House headquarters outside Tel Aviv and included a much greater number of atrocities against Palestinians in the establishment of Israel in the late 1940s. Pappé says it was the start of a process of ethnic cleansing that continues until today. "Denied for almost six decades, had it happened today it could only have been called "ethnic cleansing". Decisively debunking the myth that the Palestinian population left of their own accord in the course of this war, Ilan Pappe offers impressive archival evidence to demonstrate that, from its very inception, a central plank in Israel's founding ideology was the forcible removal of the indigenous population.

"You can do as much about the legacy of the Holocaust - and what I took from my depressed mother who lost all her family in the Holocaust - there is only so much I could do in personal analysis and there was another bit that I could do only in a strange kind of dialogue in the presence of Germans doing their own work.

German chemist Fritz Haber's discovery of how to turn atmospheric nitrogen into ammonia is seen as one of the most significant of 20th century science - it enabled the industrial manufacture of fertilisers, which now provide food for up to half the planet's people. But he was also responsible for the development and deployment of poison gas on the battlefields of World War One and is remembered by some as the 'father of chemical warfare'. His was also a life touched by personal tragedy and a struggle against a Jewish heritage that at first threatened to hold back his career, and would later send him into exile. Bridget Kendall examines a life that epitomises science's capacity to create and to destroy. Contributors: Dan Charles, US journalist and author of ‘Master Mind: The Rise And Fall Of Fritz Haber, The Nobel Laureate Who Launched The Age Of Chemical Warfare'; Shulamit Volkov, professor emerita of European and especially German History at the University of Tel Aviv, Israel; Dr Anthony Travis, senior researcher in the history of technology at the Sidney M.

AD KAN (NO MORE) was founded in 1988 by a group of academics at Tel Aviv University. The initiative, a public pressure group, was prompted by public indifference (at best) about Israel's 20-year occupation of the Palestinian Territories, and its forceful attempts to suppress the nascent First Intifada popular uprising in the West Bank. Whilst outward facing in their basic ambitions, the founder members of AD KAN also understood that academia's failure to engage with the realities of the moment—through debate, protest, even applied research—could easily be taken too as acceptance of the status quo, embodying as it did the subaltern position of the Palestinian people. Can Academics Change the World? An Israeli Anthropologist's Testimony on the Rise and Fall of a Protest Movement on Campus (Berghahn Books, 2020) by Moshe Shokeid, is a personal account of the author's experiences as co-founder of AD KAN. An account of dissent on campus, the book is at once a memoir, a historical account, and an anthropological consideration of the academic's responsibility as a public intellectual. Can Academics Change the World? remains relevant today, with many of the issues underpinning the formation and activities of AD KAN still live: the occupation of the West Bank; attempts to force Israel into concession and compromise, principally through the Boycott, Diversification, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign; and the continued status of the academic as public intellectual, in Israel and elsewhere—this cast against a university landscape that has reorganized itself around a different set of principles in the three decades since AD KAN ceased its activities. Professor Moshe Shokeid is Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at Tel Aviv University. His other books include Three Jewish Journeys through the Anthropologist's Lens: From Morocco to the Negev, Zion to the Big Apple, the Closet to the Bimah; A Gay Synagogue in New York; Children of Circumstances: Israeli Emigrants in New York; and The Dual Heritage: Immigrants from the Atlas Mountains in an Israeli Village.

AD KAN (NO MORE) was founded in 1988 by a group of academics at Tel Aviv University. The initiative, a public pressure group, was prompted by public indifference (at best) about Israel's 20-year occupation of the Palestinian Territories, and its forceful attempts to suppress the nascent First Intifada popular uprising in the West Bank. Whilst outward facing in their basic ambitions, the founder members of AD KAN also understood that academia's failure to engage with the realities of the moment—through debate, protest, even applied research—could easily be taken too as acceptance of the status quo, embodying as it did the subaltern position of the Palestinian people. Can Academics Change the World? An Israeli Anthropologist's Testimony on the Rise and Fall of a Protest Movement on Campus (Berghahn Books, 2020) by Moshe Shokeid, is a personal account of the author's experiences as co-founder of AD KAN. An account of dissent on campus, the book is at once a memoir, a historical account, and an anthropological consideration of the academic's responsibility as a public intellectual. Can Academics Change the World? remains relevant today, with many of the issues underpinning the formation and activities of AD KAN still live: the occupation of the West Bank; attempts to force Israel into concession and compromise, principally through the Boycott, Diversification, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign; and the continued status of the academic as public intellectual, in Israel and elsewhere—this cast against a university landscape that has reorganized itself around a different set of principles in the three decades since AD KAN ceased its activities. Professor Moshe Shokeid is Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at Tel Aviv University. His other books include Three Jewish Journeys through the Anthropologist's Lens: From Morocco to the Negev, Zion to the Big Apple, the Closet to the Bimah; A Gay Synagogue in New York; Children of Circumstances: Israeli Emigrants in New York; and The Dual Heritage: Immigrants from the Atlas Mountains in an Israeli Village. Akin Ajayi (@AkinAjayi) is a writer and editor, based in Tel Aviv. Learn more about your ad choices.
