Part 1:

Who exactly are the "Palestinian" refugees? A discussion on how any why Arabs that lived in British mandate Palestine are treated differently then any other refugee in the world by the United Nations.

Part 2:

Why did Jews vote Democrat? Jay gets personal as he described how Jewish families, the children of immigrants had photos of Franklin D. Roosevelt in their homes and how the Democratic party helped "the little guy." Jews faced a silent kind of discrimination in business and college in a different time in America. But does that carry over into today's day, especially in how the Democrats relate to Israel?
