After Orlando, after Sarona

On this week’s episode: Responding to the deadly attacks on a Tel Aviv market and a Florida gay bar; staying vigilant on ‘terrorism’ and mum on Islamic fundamentalism; and getting too good at moving past the pain

Raoul Wootliff is the The Times of Israel's political correspondent.

This week’s podcast looks at reactions to the aftermath of deadly terror attacks in Tel Aviv and Orlando.

As some try to link the two, suggesting the shooting attacks are one and the same, the panel asks whether such comparisons are accurate, and if they are at all helpful.

Analyzing statements from US President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the panel questions when an attack should be called “terrorism” and when it shouldn’t be called “Islamic fundamentalism.”

Plus, Times of Israel blogger Rachael Risby Raz shares her blog “A time to mourn” about Israelis’ resolve in the face of terror, and the panel asks if, at times, the determination not to give in to terror can trivialize tragedy and blur necessary conclusions.
