We discuss the election video posted by the Shomron Settlers’ Council, the Shas party’s class-orientated election campaign, and the Zoabi-Marzel saga.
The Promised Podcast
We discuss PM Netanyahu’s decision to address the US Congress two weeks before Israeli elections; the V15 get-out-the-vote NGO; and Meretz’s Zahava Gal-On.
We discuss an Israeli bookstore’s decision to cancel its Charlie Hebdo event; the merger of Israel’s Arab parties on a joint list; and negative campaigning.
We discuss the reaction of Israel’s leaders to the Paris attacks, put the spotlight on Moshe Kahlon, and talk about Jewish Home’s view on same-sex marriage.
Why Israel has frozen Palestinian funds; how Israelis are losing faith in their institutions; whether Israel’s democratic primaries are really democratic.
Are these the most important elections in Israel’s history? What makes Naftali Bennett tick? Plus our ‘Person, Place or Thing of the Year.’
We discuss the Palestinian proposal that puts a deadline on peace, Eli Yishai’s new party, and an irking campaign promoting Shabbat observance.
We discuss the coming together of the center-left parties, Moshe Feiglin’s odd amalgam of views, and whether ‘privatizing’ BDS is a good idea.
