Back from Thanksgiving break, Phil and Cooper give a thorough rundown of everything that’s been happening in Israel lately. In the span of a month, Israel’s two leading politicians have failed to form a new government, there’s been violence at the Gaza-Israel border, and Prime Minister Netanyahu not only got a political victory from the Trump Administration, but got indicted as well. And to top it all off, Israel looks like it’s headed for an unprecedented third do-over election. Al-Monitor contributor and former Knesset member Ksenia Svetlova joins the podcast to discuss.
Episode #78, Honey I Shrunk My Coalition (11/29/2018): Phil, Cooper, and Danny Zaken discuss Netanyahu’s political majority falling apart after the departure of Avigdor Liberman along with threats of other cabinet members leaving.
