Has Netanyahu pulled the final rabbit from his hat?
Welcome to The Times of Israel’s Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what’s happening in Israel, the Middle East, and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday.
Today’s panel comprises senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur and ops and blogs editor Miriam Hershlag, along with host Raoul Wootliff.
On today's show, we open with a look at the state of play in Israeli politics on the final day of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's opportunity to form a coalition, with his deadline to do so being midnight tonight.
What's his game plan right now? What last-minute maneuvers is he pulling from his bag of magic tricks? And what's next?
And, four days from the tragedy on Mount Meron that left 45 people dead after a deadly crush during lag B'Omer celebrations last week, we look at two voices from our blog platform trying to process the disaster.
Discussed articles include:
