Municipality type A in State of Palestine
*) Ukraine's Zelenskyy accuses Russia of 'genocide' in Donbass Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has accused Moscow of carrying out a "genocide" in the eastern region of Donbass. In a televised address, Zelenskyy said Moscow's bombardment could leave the entire region "uninhabited". Pro-Moscow separatist groups have since 2014 controlled parts of Donbass, but Russia now appears set on taking the whole region. *) Palestine: Israeli troops deliberately killed Al Jazeera reporter Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh was killed by a bullet fired directly at her by an Israeli sniper, Palestinian attorney general Akram Al-Khatib has said. Al-Khatib shared the details based on the Public Prosecution's report in Ramallah city. He said an Israeli sniper fired the bullet at Abu Akleh's head while she was trying to escape. Fifty-one-year-old Abu Akleh was shot and killed on May 11 while she was covering an Israeli military raid near the Jenin refugee camp in the occupied West Bank. *) Blinken says US doesn't seek 'conflict or new Cold War' with China US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has called for vigorous competition with China to preserve the existing global order, but said his country doesn't seek a "new Cold War". Blinken also said that Beijing posed "the most serious long-term challenge to the international order" despite months of US focus on Russia's assault on Ukraine. The long-awaited speech on Thursday is being seen as the most comprehensive statement to date on China by President Joe Biden's administration. *) Türkiye: Military ops on southern border necessary for national security The Turkish National Security Council has said operations across Türkiye's southern borders do not target neighbours' territorial integrity, but are necessary for its national security. In a statement after a meeting on Thursday, the council also urged countries violating international law by supporting terrorism to "put an end to this attitude". On Monday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said his country would take steps to complete the remainder of a 30-kilometre safe zone along its southern border. And, finally... *) 'Goodfellas' actor Ray Liotta dead at 67 Actor Ray Liotta, who starred in Martin Scorsese's gangster classic "Goodfellas," has died in the Dominican Republic at the age of 67. Liotta, whose portrayal of mobster Henry Hill in Scorsese's crime masterpiece won universal admiration, was shooting a new film in the country when he died. Police said emergency services were called early on Thursday morning to a hotel in Santo Domingo where they found Liotta already dead.
The killing of the beloved Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, who was https://www.cnn.com/2022/05/24/middleeast/shireen-abu-akleh-jenin-killing-investigation-cmd-intl/index.html (shot by Israeli forces) while covering an IDF raid of occupied Jenin on May 11th, has sparked massive outcry in Palestine and widespread condemnation from the international community—as did the subsequent attack on her funeral procession by Israeli police. Though Abu Akleh, a veteran correspondent for Al Jazeera, was a singular figure, her death is only the latest reminder that Israel has routinely targeted journalists and civilians, sustaining its impunity through obfuscation in the media and the routine dehumanization of Palestinians. Jewish Currents fellow Dylan Saba speaks with political scientist Dana El Kurd and activist Fadi Quran about Israeli media strategy, shifting public opinion outside the region, and the discursive and strategic challenges faced by the Palestine solidarity movement.

On this edition of Parallax Views, Dan Christensen of the Florida Bulldog returns to the show to discuss the latest on the recently declassified FBI report on Saudi Arabia and the support networks for the perpetators of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks. Dan has been covering this issue alongside Anthony Summers and Robynn Swan, authors of The Eleventh Day: The Full Story of 9/11 and Osama Bin Laden, for a number of years now and his latest Florida Bulldog piece on the subject is entitled "A ‘state secret' no more: New FBI report says Saudi government officials provided support network for 9/11 hijackers". Among the subjects discussed in relation to the report are: Saudi charities; Prince Bandar Bin Salman (nicknamed Bandar Bush for his association with George W. Bush); the Muslim World League; Operation Encore; the figures of Fahad al Thumairy , Omar al Bayoumi, and the now unredacted Musaed al Jarrah; 9/11 hijackers al Hazmi and al Mihdhar; and much, much more! In the second segment of the show, Mitchell Plitnick of ReThinking Foreign Policy joins me to discuss his Responsible Statecraft piece "Biden's trip to Israel is getting trickier by the day". In June, President Joe Biden will visit Israel. The death of Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh in Jenin, the police attacks during her funeral, and the upcoming Jerusalem Day "Flag March" of Israeli far-right nationalists which will go through Damascus Gate and the Old City's Muslim Quarter has already put tensions at an all time high. Meanwhile, the Biden administration is seeking to pivot U.S. foreign policy out of the Middle East to focus on Russia and China. Mitchell explains how he believes this has led to a circumstance where the Biden administration is not addressing issues like Abu Akleh's death or the large expansion of settlements in the West Bank. In addition to this we discuss Israel's current Prime Minister Naftali Bennet, the figure of Knesset member and far-right provocateur Itamar Ben-Gvir, Secretary of State Antony Blinken's encounter with a pro-Palestinian activist, and much, much more.
The cold-blooded killing of Shireen Abu Akleh earlier this month has made headlines around the world. An Israeli soldier shot the veteran Al-Jazeera journalist in the head while she was reporting on their raid on a refugee camp in the West Bank city of Jenin.Shireen's niece Lina first heard of the news from her father, who phoned her early in the morning to tell her she was injured.

On both the right and the left, Israel increasingly plays a disproportionate role in American politics, exceeding its geopolitical importance. How does this shift impact American policy toward Israel? Michael Koplow, Chief Policy Officer at Israel Policy Forum, returns to discuss AIPAC, the impact of the Trump presidency, Shireen Abu Akleh (the Al Jazeera reporter recently killed in Jenin) and the reality of a Two-State solution with host Yehuda Kurtzer.
Palestinian American Journalist Shireen Abu Akleh was shot and killed on May 11th while reporting on Israeli raids in the Palestinian West Bank city of Jenin. Eyewitnesses and video and audio evidence point toward the shots coming from Israeli forces, a claim that Israeli authorities at least initially disputed. And over the weekend, multiple communities in the US were terrorized by mass shootings including in Buffalo, NY, and Laguna Woods, CA.We discuss how peacemakers should respond to these incidents, the importance of listening to understand and amplifying the voices that we see being marginalized, and more.

On this edition of Parallax Views, returning guest and occassional Mondoweiss contributor Yossi Gurvitz joins us from Israel to discuss the latest events around Israel/Palestine with a focus on events in East Jerusalem and the West Bank (particularly the Jenin refugee camp), the death of Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh and the violence that erupted at her funeral, and the news that Hamas has announced it will retaliated if the Israeli nationalist far-right holds it's "Flag March" in East Jerusalem on Jerusalem Day (May 28-29th). Additionally we discuss the prominence of Itamar Ben-Gvir (a "follower" of Rabbi Meier Kahane who made some rather interesting remarks in the lead-up to the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzshak Rabin) in Israeli political, the Israeli left's impotence, the fragility of the Israeli coalition government, the upcoming "Flag March" as a provocation, the gamification of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), the IDF's announcement that it will not investigate the death of Shireen Abu Akleh, and much, much more!

With inflation heading toward 10% some current pay rates are clearly inadequate, especially given the cost of living crisis and huge increases in fuel, food and energy costs.Murder of Shireen Abu AklehLast week (Wednesday 11 May) Israeli forces in the occupied west Bank deliberately targeted and murdered a Palestinian journalist. Shireen Abu Akleh was a well respected Palestinian/American reporter working for Al Jazeera. The 51 year old veteran journalist was wearing a clearly visible press vest and helmet. She was in the Jenin refugee camp covering an attack by Israeli forces when she was shot in the face by a single shot from an Israeli sniper. A second Palestinian journalist, Ali al-Samoudi was also wounded.

On May 11, a prominent Palestinian-American journalist was shot and killed in the West Bank while reporting for Al Jazeera. Her name was Shireen Abu Akleh. She was widely respected for her work and had over 25 years of experience covering the region. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas blames Israel for her killing. Israel initially said Palestinian gunmen may have been responsible but now say it could have been errant Israeli fire. They are now calling for an investigation. Some fear a conclusive answer on who killed Shireen may never come.Josef Federman is the News Director of the Associated Press for Israel, Palestinian territories and Jordan. He's on the show to explain what has been going on in Jenin, the city where Shireen Abu Akleh was reporting from when she died, what we know so far about who is responsible for her death and how the investigation is playing into an already heated conflict between Israelis and Palestinians.
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. Palestinian Affairs correspondent Aaron Boxerman and environment reporter Sue Surkes join host Amanda Borschel-Dan. Last night thousands of Palestinians participated in the funeral procession for 21-year-old Walid a-Sharif whom Palestinians said died after being hit by a sponge-tipped bullet during the clashes on April 22. Israeli police said he fell and hit his head while throwing rocks. We're again in a He Said, He Said situation. How is this affecting tensions on the Temple Mount? We also learned of the death of Daoud Zubeidi, the brother of notorious terror chief and Gilboa prison escapee Zakaria Zubeidi. He reportedly died of wounds he sustained during a gun battle with Israeli soldiers. Is this contributing to the clashes as well? We hear about take-aways from Boxerman's conversation with Anton Abu Akleh, the brother of Shireen Abu Akleh, the veteran Palestinian journalist shot dead under disputed circumstances in Jenin last week. This week the Supreme Court gave the planned Jerusalem Cable Car a real boost. What are the next steps? The Jewish holiday Lag Ba'Omer is set to spark off tomorrow night. How is Israel attempting to prevent wild fires ahead of the holiday -- and the long, hot summer?

Tusinder fulgte i sidste uge hendes begravelsesoptog gennem Jerusalem, da israelsk politi stormede og tæskede dem, der bar kisten, så de nær havde tabt den. I kisten lå den berømte amerikansk-palæstinensiske journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, der onsdag blev skudt. I 10 år havde hun dækket stort set alt, hvad der er foregået i Mellemøsten for tv-stationen Al Jazeera. Iført hjelm, skudsikker vest og tydelig presse-dokumentation var hun netop ankommet til den palæstinensiske by Jenin for at reportere fra en israelsk militæraktion, da hun blev ramt af skud i hovedet. I dagens afsnit besvarer Politikens tidligere mellemøstkorrespondent, Marcus Rubin, spørgsmålet om, hvordan et enkelt menneskes død i en lang og blodig konflikt kan vækker voldsomme reaktioner verden over.

The Israel haters are out in full force, blaming the Jewish State for the death of Al-Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu-Akleh, despite the fact that she was most likely killed by PA gunmen in Jenin. Even if Israel accidentally killed the journalist, her death is being exploited as a propaganda tool like no other similar case before it. On this week's Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten, Josh discusses how Hollywood celebrities, and radical politicians from both the EU and US, are on board the Israel-bashing train. At the same time the IDF and other security forces are working around the clock to thwart Hamas and PA incited terrorism.
In this week's Middle East News Hour, Caroline Glick is joined by Amnon Lord, senior columnist at Israel Hayom and one of Israel's foremost experts on the Israeli left. Caroline and Amnon discuss the Palestinian and international community's use of blood libels to demonize Israel and legitimize the mass murder of Jews, in the context of the death of Al Jazeera reporter Shireen Abu Akleh in Jenin last week. Next, they move to the Israeli left's abandonment of Zionism and what it means for Israeli democracy, for the country's ability to withstand and defeat the political war the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) and its partners are waging against it and for Israel's survival more generally. And this includes a focus on the state of Israeli politics and its influence on national security.
Shireen Abu Aqla, giornalista di punta del network Al Jazeera, è stata uccisa l'11 maggio scorso da colpi di arma da fuoco che l'hanno raggiunta mentre stava lavorando in Cisgiordania, nella città palestinese di Jenin.
Shireen, for every Palestinian journalist and for every Arab journalist, is a model we lost today,” Al Jazeera journalist Tamer Mishal said. “The tragic pictures that we saw on social media, shot in the head, show that it came from an Israeli sniper who fired a bullet directly at her.”“Till the very last second, Shireen Abu Akleh was professional and persevering,” he added.The last message Abu Akleh sent to Al Jazeera was an email at 6:13am in which she wrote: “Occupation forces storm Jenin and besiege a house in the Jabriyat neighbourhood. On the way there, I will bring you news as soon as the picture becomes clear.”Al Jazeera Media Network called on the international community hold the Israeli occupation forces accountable for their “intentional targeting and killing” of Abu Akleh.Al Jazeera's Nida Ibrahim reports from Al Jazeera Bureau in the Palestinian city of Ramallah.
The United Nations, the US and the European Union have called for a full investigation into the killing of an Al Jazeera journalist. Shiren Abu Akleh was reportedly shot in the head during an Israeli military raid in the West Bank town of Jenin, with some witnesses claiming she was shot by Israeli troops.
With the leak of a draft opinion from Justice Alito, it is feared that the rulings from Roe v Wade will be overturned leaving abortion rights vulnerable to state legislatures. Approximately 13 states have trigger laws that are set to go into effect once Roe v Wade is overturned, further highlighting the rise of far-right fundamentalism within state legislatures. Along with a baby formula shortage, anti-trans laws, and a white supremacist attack in Buffalo, conditions within the United States are reaching a tipping point. The war in Ukraine enters a new phase as invading forces abandon the assault on Kyiv to focus on the Donbas region. Even after almost three months of fighting Russian forces continue to demonstrate their operational incompetence.

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. Editor David Horovitz and military correspondent Emanuel Fabian join host Amanda Borschel-Dan. Horovitz was in Jerusalem's Old City on Friday and witness to part of the funeral procession for journalist Shireen Abu Akleh. What did he see there and what are the competing narratives explaining the disturbing images that came out of it? There was a lot of back and forth last week about who could and could not take part in the probe over Abu Akleh's death. What is the status now? Counterterrorism officer Noam Raz was killed in clashes near Jenin on Friday. He was part of the Yamam unit. What is this unit and why was he there? This morning, the Israel Defense Forces released the name of an Israeli special forces officer Lt. Col. Mahmoud Kheir el-Din until now known as "Mem." He was killed in a botched nighttime operation in the Gaza Strip in November 2018. Why was his name released today?

Norge ser på seg selv som en humanitær supermakt, men hvordan lar det seg forene med at man deltar i angrepet på Israel? Når noe skjer, gjelder det å lage et narrativ som blir som en spydspiss mot Israel. At en Al Jazeera-journalist blir drept er tragiske nok, om det ikke umiddelbart skal konverteres til et angrep på Israel. Journalistene og vår egen utenrikstjeneste ser suverent bort fra en israelsk sikkerhetssoldat ble skutt og drept i Jenin på samme dag, onsdag. Man bryr seg ikke om hva Israel sier, men bryr seg ikke en gang om de israelske døde. Det er den sørgelige sannhet. Videoen er klar til å sees via Odysee, der vi nå har en egen Podcast kanal!

Il Consiglio di sicurezza dell'Onu condanna fermamente l'uccisione della giornalista palestinese-americana Shireen Abu Akleh e il ferimento di un altro reporter, nella città di Jenin in Cisgiordania. E' una delle poche volte in cui le Nazioni Unite prendono una posizione unanime su un argomento riguardante Israele.
*) Russia warns of consequences after Finland announces NATO bid The Kremlin has warned about taking retaliatory “military-technical” steps after Finland's leaders came out in favour of applying to join NATO. Finland has been militarily neutral for decades, but it shares a 1,300 kilometre border with Russia. The Nordic country is expected to approve the plans to join the alliance next week and its neighbour Sweden could do the same within days. NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg has said the alliance would welcome Finland and Sweden with open arms. *) Kiev in talks to evacuate 38 wounded Azovstal fighters As Ukraine continues to push back against Russia, an explosion hits the besieged Azovstal steel plant in Mariupol. Ukraine general staff said that Russia's military hit the embattled port city and the plant with artillery and air strikes. Kiev earlier said it was holding "difficult" talks with Russia to secure safe passage for dozens of wounded fighters from the plant Azovstal is the last pocket of Ukrainian resistance in the devastated southern port city. *) Slain Al Jazeera journalist to be buried in Jerusalem The UN has said the killing of Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh may be a war crime. And, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said he would refer it to the International Criminal Court. The Al Jazeera correspondent has been remembered in a state ceremony in Ramallah in the occupied West Bank. Witnesses say she was shot in the head by Israeli forces while covering an army raid on a refugee camp in Jenin. *) North Korea confirms first Covid-19 death in explosive outbreak North Korea has reported its first Covid deaths and said 350-thousand people are infected with the virus. The country has expanded its lockdown to try to stop the virus spreading. Pyongyang says almost 200-thousand people are in quarantine after six people died in the past few days. North Korea has declared the outbreak an emergency and tighter restrictions are expected to continue to be rolled out And, finally... *) Scientists for first time grow plants in soil from the Moon Scientists for the first time have grown seeds in soil from the moon. The ground-breaking experiment has given researchers hope that it may be possible to one day grow plants directly on the Moon. However, scientists said the plants in the lunar samples grew more slowly and had stunted roots. Still, much remains to be studied on the topic and the researchers intend to leave no stone unturned.

The death of Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh during an IDF raid in the Palestinian city of Jenin has shifted the international spotlight back on Israel. Yonit and Jonathan discuss the contradicting narratives and the implications of this tragedy for both sides. In the meantime, the Bennett-Lapid coalition is keeping its head above water for now, but the answer to whether it makes it to safe shores or drowns is still pending.

Stuck in his Palestinian hometown of Jenin during lockdown, Mo'min Swaitat walked into an old music shop where thousands of dusty cassettes lined the walls. They contained decades of Palestinian music and field recordings once confiscated by the Israeli army, long since forgotten, and never meant to make it out of Palestine. This is the story of what was on those cassettes, and Mo'min's mission to give them a second life. This episode was produced by Nadeen Shaker and edited by Dana Ballout.

On COI #274, Kyle Anzalone and Connor Freeman cover Tel Aviv's murder of an internationally renowned journalist in the occupied West Bank as well as the latest Iran deal news. Kyle breaks down the Israeli occupation forces' brutal killing of Al Jazeera's Shireen Abu Akleh during a raid on the Jenin refugee camp. Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and his apartheid regime attempted to blame the shooting on Palestinian gunmen, this absurd claim was immediately debunked by Israel's top human rights organization. The bullet that was lodged in Abu Akleh's brain was of a type used by the Israeli military. Washington has predictably issued cheap, tepid condolences and has expressed support for an investigation that is to be partly led by Tel Aviv. The reaction to the murder highlights the U.S. government's double standards and the mainstream press' rank hypocrisy. Connor discusses a hawkish Senate motion passed by a bipartisan majority that, though non-binding, sends a powerful message to the Joe Biden administration and Tehran that any attempted return to the deal will face insurmountable opposition. The supporters of the motion advocate for the much of the same “longer and stronger” measures the Trump administration demanded previously including putting Iran's ballistic missiles on the table and refusing to lift the IRGC's Foreign Terrorist Organization designation. There is growing anti-Iran deal sentiment even among members of Biden's own party.

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. Political correspondent Carrie Keller-Lynn and Diaspora Affairs correspondent Judah Ari Gross join host Amanda Borschel-Dan. We begin with a briefing on the tragic death of journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, 51, who was shot in the head during clashes between Israeli troops and Palestinian gunmen while covering an Israeli army operation in the West Bank city of Jenin on Wednesday. Yesterday was an action-packed day in the Knesset. Let's hear what did -- and didn't -- happen.

Shireen Abu Akleh was a trailblazing Palestinian journalist who spent decades covering Israel's brutal military occupation of Palestine. On Wednesday, Israeli soldiers fatally shot her in the face while she was reporting on the Israeli military's invasion of a home in the Palestinian city of Jenin. Shireen was wearing a clearly marked press vest and helmet, but Israeli soldiers shot her and fellow journalists anyway, killing Shireen and wounding others. As an Al Jazeera correspondent born in Jerusalem, Shireen amplified the stories of Palestinians who were subjected to Israel's brutal military occupation, its war crimes, and its everyday injustices.
Conmoción y rabia en el mundo periodístico tras conocerse que soldados israelíes mataron a sangre fría Shireen Abu Akleh, reconocida corresponsal del medio qatarí Al-Jazeera. La comunicadora cubría una redada del Ejército israelí en la ciudad de Jenin. El canal de noticias afirmó que portaba casco y chaleco de prensa y que aun así las fuerzas israelíes le dispararon en la cara.
Al Jazeera reporter Shireen Abu Akleh was shot and killed in the occupied West Bank while covering an Israeli army raid in the Jenin refugee camp. Palestinians are blaming the Israeli military, while Israel is neither confirming nor denying responsibility. Also, as the US Supreme Court weighs in on Roe v. Wade, we hear about abortion rights in India, where the procedure has been legal, within certain confines, for more than 50 years. Plus, dengue cases are on the rise across Brazil, leaving public health experts rushing to tackle the mosquito-borne disease.

A Palestinian-American journalist, Sherine Abu Aqla, has been shot dead while reporting for Al Jazeera on a raid by Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank city of Jenin. The Qatar-based network which she worked for has accused Israel of deliberately killing her. We'll hear from an eyewitness who themselves was shot in the back in the same incident. Also in the programme: Sri Lankans observe a curfew in fear of a shoot-on-sight policy, but it won't stop them from protesting; and a soldier's account of life under fire in Azovstal in Ukraine.

Siamo stati in Palestina, a Jenin, dove il Qatar accusa l'esercito israeliano dell'uccisione della giornalista di Al Jazeera Shireen Abu Akleh, avvenuta questa mattina. Abbiamo provato ad analizzare quanto sta succedendo e i rischi di ulteriori tensioni con Nello Del Gatto (giornalista e analista da Gerusalemme, collabora tra gli altri con La Stampa),Gigi Bisceglia (capo missione in Palestina per VIS - Volontariato Internazionale per lo Sviluppo) e con Safwat Khalout (corrispondente di Al Jazeera da Gaza). Subito dopo siamo tornati in Ucraina, dove i combattimenti proseguono e la Russia sembra pronta ad annettere la regione di Kherson: ne abbiamo parlato con Roberto Bongiorni (inviato del Sole 24Ore).
Middle East Analysis takes a sombre tone this month as, just before recording, we learned of the killing of long-term Al Jazeera Arabic journalist Shireen Abu Akleh in Jenin in the West Bank. We're left asking, as often we do, where is the justice that will open the door to peace in the Israel-Palestine conflict? Dr Harry Hagopian looks at the disturbing upturn in violence as the world, seemingly, looks the other way. Our next stop is Lebanon and a look at the forthcoming Parliamentary Elections slated for Sunday, 15 May. Will the process be 'fair' and democratic? Will it lead to change? Harry then picks up on a rare visit to Tehran by Syrian president Bashar al-Assad and looks at Syria's rehabilitation and potential readmission into the wider Arab fold. He then answers an interesting question: Was Russia's intervention in Syria a dress rehearsal for its conflict with Ukraine? Our final topic looks at frosty relations between the US and some of the Gulf Cooperation Council countries - specifically Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. We conclude with four cap-doffing after thoughts.

Today in Israel, 15 Terrorist suspects were arrested by the the IDF in Judea & Samaria. An Al-Jazeera journalists was killed this morning in a firefight between the IDF and Palestinian terrorists in Jenin.

All this and more on today's show!
Life in Israel/Palestine is always characterized by a high level of violence; for instance, Israel's control of millions of stateless Palestinians in the West Bank who live without due process under military law is inherently violent. But recent weeks have seen a surge in violence: Palestinians from both the West Bank and Israel proper have attacked and in some cases killed Israeli civilians and soldiers, and Israeli soldiers and Jewish settlers have attacked and in some cases killed Palestinian civilians. With the unusual confluence of the holidays of Ramadan, Easter, and Passover, many worry that the violence will grow, and even spiral into the kind of massive bloodshed that unfolded last spring. (Since this episode was recorded on April 13th, tensions have escalated further as Israeli police attacked worshipers at the Al-Aqsa mosque, and Israel bombed Gaza in response to a Hamas rocket.) On this episode, Editor-at-Large Peter Beinart speaks with political scientist Dana El Kurd and attorney Daniel Seidemann about why violence is rising now, shifting Palestinian public opinion on violent and nonviolent resistance, and what the coming weeks may bring.

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. Editor David Horovitz and military correspondent Emanuel Fabian join host Amanda Borschel-Dan. Israel prepares to bury the three victims of the terrorist attack that took place in Tel Aviv on Thursday, Tomer Morad, Eytam Magini, and Barak Lufan. Fabian explains what we know about the attack, attacker and victims. Following the defection of coalition whip Idit Silman, Horovitz squarely places the blame on one man. Let's hear who it is and why. Horovitz visited Salisbury, England, last week, where Sergei Skripal, a former Russian military officer turned British intelligence agent, was poisoned by Russian agents. Why is this incident still significant?

Matt Kibbe is joined by Jenin Younes, litigation counsel for the New Civil Liberties Alliance, to discuss the jarring reversal of the Biden administration and other Democratic politicians regarding COVID-19 and lockdown policies. As empirical evidence and public support for their positions evaporated, the “follow the science” crowd appeared to lose interest in a subject that has preoccupied them for two years, declaring victory over the virus apropos of nothing other than poor polling data and a desire to change the subject prior to the midterm elections.
