Tribal Update two-fer

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterEmail this to someoneShare on Google+

I am travelling in the US now and was offline for the past week. As a result, I didn’t have a chance to post last week’s Tribal Update from Latma, the Hebrew-language satire website that I edit. So without further ado, I’m posting both last week’s show and this week’s show here.


Last week’s show featured Russian leader Vladimir Putin singing about how Russians handle terrorists. Here is the full program.





 And here is the outtake clip of Vladimir’s song.




This week we celebrated the journalistic courage on display today which marked the five year anniversary of Israel’s withdrawal from Gaza. We also feature the artistic courage of aspiring Israeli artists. For a bit of background on the second sketch, this past week Shenkar Design Academy in Israel featured a student exhibition in which Israelis who live outside the 1949 armistice lines were portrayed as Nazis. 


Here is this week’s program.



I also apologize for not publishing your talkbacks. Hopefully by the end of the weekend, I’ll be up to date again on that score.


Enjoy the broadcasts and post and spread far and wide!

    Love the Putin song! – hilarious, especially the shoot-the-plane-down-over-the-shoulder bit. The disengagement segment is such cutting satire that I hardly knew whether to laugh or cry. (Ah, yes, let’s take off our glasses, stare at the camera, and be earnest.) And the art segment reminds me of colleagues at the university from which I just retired. Right on the mark as always.
    Speaking of courageous journalism … Caroline, I just finished re-reading your book, “Shackled Warrior,” and it was almost more painful to read this time than it was last time — painful because you were so right about everything, and yet no one listened then and no one is listening now.
    But keep poking at them anyway. Great satire and a great team.

    Caroline, two at one time double the laughs, but the truth wins out every time. Sadly we can’t seem to learn from our mistakes or the lessons of others. Is it so important to have President Obama like us? He doesn’t even think highly of himself, or perhaps he’s the only one he likes.

    Still a little hard to blame the Russian’s for their shall we say “more direct approach”. After all they’ve been invaded by just about every “super-power” since the days of early Rus. The Mongols (13th century), the Turks (at least a dozen times since the 16th century right up to the early 20th century), the French (Napoleon), the British and Americans (1918 in support of White Russians), the Germans (Hitler)…Gee you’d think Russia and Israel would be great friends – united by common enemies…?
    Keep up the great work Caroline and Latma you guys are the real courageous journalists.
