The Show regularly checks in with the Editorial Board of the Arizona Republic to talk about current issues facing the state and the region — featured in columns on the newspaper’s op-ed pages.

The recent battle in Israel among some Jewish residents, some Palestinians, and Hamas has publicly revived a number of concerns — including Middle East warfare, whether Jewish and Palestinian people can coexist there, and antisemitism in the U.S. and elsewhere.

Phil Boas of the Republic wrote about antisemitism in a weekend column, and The Show spoke with him to learn how much of it he thinks is related to history, and how much is related to what’s currently going on in Israel and the Middle East.
