17 November 2022

Now, the country is on the cusp of its most right-wing government in history. Who and what forces are behind these events in Israeli politics? Guest: Patrick Kingsley, the Jerusalem bureau chief for The New York Times. Background reading:  To win election, Mr. Netanyahu and his far-right allies harnessed perceived threats to Israel’s Jewish identity after ethnic unrest and the subsequent inclusion of Arab lawmakers in the government. The rise of the Israeli far right has stoked fear among some Palestinians of a surge of violence.
