Jeffrey Goldberg on Israel's Demography and Democracy

May 18, 2008

Jeffrey Goldberg wrote the cover story for the May issue of the Atlantic magazine which describes a very public dispute between the Prime Minister of Israel and one of the country's leading novelists. Goldberg talks with Jim Fleming about the role of the "public Intellectual" in Israel, the coming demographic problem the country faces, and expresses some doubt about Israel's long-term viability as a Jewish democracy.
