ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Just as there are different Enlightenments, there are different nationalisms, too. In both cases, it’s important to see what points they all converge on.

Surfin’ UAE

In the words of a famed conservative activist, “When they go low, we go high.” That’s what we’re doing today on The Remnant by getting out of the muck of American domestic politics and having a conversation with veteran guest Kenneth Pollack on the intricacies of the Israel-UAE deal instead. What does this mean for the region, and what are the historical corollaries (Hint: It might be on your Remnant Bingo card)?
