    Thank You for the insight into Israeli Politics. As an American I listen with that bias. The podcast left me believing that political systems are under attack in every Democracy around the world. I do not know enough to comment on who is right or wrong in Israel. What many people in America wonder but do not discuss in public is when the USA falls were can I go? I hope Israel stays strong and whole. Because, for many people in America the only safe place left in the world is Israel. Yes, it is true no nation is under attack by the world than Israel but, it is also a place that knows it’s enemies and does its best to protect its people. We are afraid we are losing that here.
