Episode 92 - Between War and Elections

- November 20, 2018

Tal Shalev, Neri Zilber and Lior Weintraub rejoin forces to sum up an intense week in Israel.

How were early elections in Israel avoided last minute and how long will this government last? Who are the winners and losers of the latest political drama, which new figures are expected to shine in the next elections, and will Ehud Barak make a comeback?

On Gaza (starting at 27:09) we discuss whether Israel lost its deterrence following last week’s intense fighting and controversial cease-fire agreement with Hamas. Our panel examines whether the political crisis in Israel impacts Netanyahu’s maneuverability on Gaza and if Trump’s long-awaited peace plan will be able to bring any real change.

And just before we finish (starting at 42:11), Shalev, Zilber and Weintraub face a pop-quiz, and suggest a surprising nominee for Israel’s position for foreign minister.
