Azerbaiyán es un país musulmán de línea chiita, que se ubica en la región del Cáucaso, entre Asia y Europa Oriental. El 30 de diciembre de 2022, Azerbaiyán anunció el nombramiento de su primer embajador en Israel, un hecho histórico que se dió luego de la visita oficial del viceministro de Relaciones Exteriores de este país. Este paso fortalece sus relaciones bilaterales pues, aunque durante los últimos 30 años habían avanzado, no se habían consolidado diplomáticamente. Pero ¿Por qué es tan importante que una nación musulmana chiita nombre a un embajador para Israel? Porque los chiitas han sido tradicionalmente formados como enemigos de los judíos por miles de años, y este acontecimiento constituye a Israel como una nación amiga. Esto dijo el exprimer ministro israelí: Yair Lapid.“La decisión de abrir una embajada refleja la profunda relación entre nuestros países. Este movimiento es el resultado de los esfuerzos del gobierno israelí para construir fuertes puentes diplomáticos con el mundo musulmán”, Así, Azerbaiyán se convirtió en el primer estado de mayoría musulmana Chiíta en decidir abrir una embajada en Israel
*) Israeli security minister visits Al Aqsa Mosque, draws Palestinian flak Israel's far-right national security minister Itamar Ben-Gvir has visited the compound that houses the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, a flashpoint holy site sacred to both Jews and Muslims, Israeli media reported. Israel's opposition leader and former prime minister Yair Lapid had warned that such a visit by Ben-Gvir would spark violence. Palestine's Foreign Ministry condemned the visit, calling it an "unprecedented provocation." Earlier Palestinian group Hamas, for its part, said it would hold Israel responsible for any consequences of Ben-Gvir's visit. *) Türkiye's exports hit all-time high of $254.2B in 2022: Erdogan Türkiye's exports hit an all-time high of $254.2 billion in 2022, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has announced, citing preliminary data. Despite global challenges, the figure increased by 12.9 percent from a year earlier, Erdogan told a news conference in Istanbul. "Our goal is to ensure that Türkiye takes its place among the top 10 exporting countries in the world," he said. *) Sweden's largest wolf cull in modern times ‘disastrous' for species Sweden has launched the biggest wolf slaughter in modern times as nature agencies warned that it could severely harm the population. The government has given permission to hunters to kill 75 out of the 460 wolves currently roaming the country in an attempt to reduce their numbers. But wildlife organisations argue that Sweden's wolf population is relatively low compared to Italy, for instance, where there are more than 3,000. *) Russia plans protracted drone campaign to 'exhaust' Ukraine Russia is planning a protracted campaign of attacks with drones to "exhaust" Ukraine, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy says. In a video address, Zelenskyy say they have information that Russia is planning a protracted attack using Iranian Shahed drones. He said Moscow wants to exhaust people of Ukraine, its anti-aircraft defences and energy. Ukraine, he says, has to "act and do everything so that the terrorists' fail in their aim.” And finally… *) Bills safety Hamlin in critical condition after collapsing, game postponed Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin was in critical condition after being given CPR and taken from the field in an ambulance National Football League game against Cincinnati.

The game was halted as medical staff quickly attended to him while players from both teams took a knee. The NFL later announced the game had been postponed.
This crazy act of Israel's current Prime Minister, Yair Lapid, together with 50 Israeli Mayors, is actually great news, setting a really important precedent to allow for Israeli school principals, and parents, to take more control over the education of our children. Hopefully, this crazy step from the "progressive" left will end their stranglehold on pushing their "progressive", really regressive, educational agenda on Israeli children.
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. Diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman and features writer Renee Ghert-Zand join host Amanda Borschel-Dan in today's episode. Yesterday marked 75 years to Kaf Tet B'November, November 29, 1947, on which the UN General Assembly voted in favor of a resolution that adopted the plan for partitioning Eretz Israel. Currently, Israel is facing a vote on a damning resolution that will come to the General Assembly plenary at some point in December. Berman updates us on how Israel is fighting it so far. Earlier this week, Berman wrote about the possibility of Israel joining the Grain from Ukraine program. What's actually happening here? Ghert-Zand discusses a study by University of Ottawa researcher Dr. Peggy J. Kleinplatz that suggests that the Nazis attempted to sterilize Jewish women in camps through the delivery of a hormonal food additive. What triggered the study and what was found? There is a new Paul Newman memoir 14 years after his death. What were some of the revelations in it? And finally, we hear about a new book that delves into a series of overlooked historical figures, the Rothschild women. Discussed articles include: TICKETS HERE: English screening of Israel's Oscar pick ‘Cinema Sabaya' + director interview ‘The occupation must end,' UN leader tells Palestinian solidarity event Lapid to world leaders: Stop Palestinian push to refer conflict to The Hague After Zelensky invitation, Kyiv has not talked to Israel about new food program Study suggests Nazis attempted to sterilize Jewish women in camps with food additive No longer just pretty faces, Rothschild family women take center stage in new book Subscribe to The Times of Israel Daily Briefing on iTunes, Spotify, PlayerFM, Google Play, or wherever you get your podcasts.

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. Senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur and real estate editor Danielle Nagler join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on today's podcast. Rettig Gur weighs in on the constant rumors that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in talks with Yesh Atid head Yair Lapid and outgoing defense minister Benny Gantz. Where are they coming from? Next Rettig Gur speaks about the thrum of talking heads bemoaning “The end of Israeli democracy.” What's different today from every other time this comes up? Mortgage borrowing in Israel has continued to decline amid rising interest rates and soaring housing costs. Could this be the push we need to lower the costs? Nagler recently wrote about plans for a new amusement park in the south outside of Beersheba. Could Negev Park be Israel's answer to EuroDisney?

Check it out here and don't forget to hit the subscribe button! https://www.youtube.com/c/ItalyGuy *** Last week something happened in Israel. Benjamin Netanyahu, who already broke the record as Israel's longest sitting Prime Minister - did it again. After Naftali Bennet and Yair Lapid overthrew him a year and a half ago, he made an historic comeback which left everyone speechless. Netanyahu took the country by a landslide, in an outcome that none of the pollsters saw coming. But in the morning after the elections, as Netanyahu and his million voters celebrated - in the small courtroom of the Jerusalem District court, things were as usual. The humongous trial of cases 1000, 2000 and 4000, kept going. Witnesses were examined by the defense and then by the prosecution. ‘The State of Israel vs. Benjamin Netanyahu'. Charges of fraud and bribery. The trial will continue for years before a verdict will be heard, and that's even before the appeals. Very few people in Israel truly understand the complexity of the charges and the cases against Netanyahu, and case 4000 is undoubtedly the most complicated of them all. It is also the most severe, the only one where Netanyahu faces charges of bribery - and many of his supporters believe wholeheartedly that this entire case is bogus. That is why a bunch of civilians, supporters of Bibi, decided to take it upon themselves to deep dive into the case and its 315 charges, to prove that they are absurd and invalid. They call themselves ‘Project 315'. Today we have with us one of the initiators of this endeavor, Moshik Kovarski, to talk about case 4000 and take a deep dive inside. So buckle up! Moshik on Twitter: https://twitter.com/mk1956
It seems like fear and hatred had won in the Israeli elections. In a one-sided game, the Bibi block delivered what they came to deliver and won 64 seats in the 25th Knesset. Having that said, more than the Right wing – Haredi block won, we can defiantly say that the “center”-left and their allies have lost. While Bibi played to win, Yair Lapid tried to continue the deadlock, and as we know from sports – when you play defense, you are most likely to get a goal. What were the results? What's their meaning? What happened in the Arab parties and the Zionist left? And what will the next coalition look like? Along with my friend, Jeff Becker, we try to explain. #YairLapid #Netanyahu #Likkud #YeshAtid #IsraeliPolitics #Knesset
Trending Middle East brings you the latest social media and search trends from the region and around the world. On today's episode, the central banks of the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Qatar raise their benchmark borrowing rates after the US Federal Reserve increased its key rate for the sixth time this year. Pope Francis condemns the “monstrous and senseless reality of war” as he begins a four-day trip to Bahrain that will focus on peace between religions. Israel's Prime Minister Yair Lapid concedes defeat and instructs all branches of government to prepare for the orderly transition of power to former leader Benjamin Netanyahu. Lebanon's parliament concludes a controversial session with a decision that the caretaker government will continue operating in its limited capacity.
Israel's Yair Lapid congratulates Benjamin Netanyahu on election victory Israel's prime minister, Yair Lapid, has called Benjamin Netanyahu to offer his congratulations on the opposition leader's election win following the conclusion of vote counting in this week's election. Netanyahu, chair of the conservative Likud party and Israel's longest serving prime minister, is expected to begin an unprecedented third term as premier after holding coalition negotiations with his religious and far-right allies on forming a government. The bloc, which includes the extremist Religious Zionists party and two Ultra-Orthodox parties, won a comfortable majority in Tuesday's election, the country's fifth in four years. Netanyahu was removed from office last summer by a diverse coalition which formed a so-called “government of change”. Infighting led to its downfall a year later, sending a frustrated electorate back to the voting booths. This time around, the rocketing popularity of the Religious Zionists' deputy, Itamar Ben-Gvir, helped the party more than double their number of seats, With 14, they are now the third-largest party in parliament, and will likely receive important ministerial positions in the new government. A former follower of the banned Kach terrorist group, with a conviction for inciting racism, Ben-Gvir supports altering Israel's legal code, which could help Netanyahu evade a conviction in his corruption trial. He has also lobbied for the deportation of “disloyal” Palestinian citizens of Israel. Arab-Israeli politician, Aida Touma-Suleiman, said on Wednesday that Netanyahu would be forming a government “with fascists by his side”. This is just my opinion.

By holding its fifth election in less than four years, can Israel break the stalemate? Prime Minister Yair Lapid hopes to remain in power after his coalition collapsed in June, but veteran politician Benjamin Netanyahu, now 73 years old and on trial for corruption, is eyeing a comeback. Many say the country's proportional representation system does not help stability in the Knesset. Meanwhile, some one million Palestinian voters make up 17 percent of the Israeli electorate but are historically disenfranchised. What will this election hold for them?
Nilly Richman, consultora política, conversó con La W sobre el panorama político en Israel que está dividido entre dos bandos: el de Benjamín Netanyahu y la coalición del actual primer ministro Yair Lapid.
Med Moderaternes og Lars Løkke Rasmussens medvind i meningsmålingerne, risikerer Radikale Venstre - som ellers har rakt ud efter midten i dansk politik i årevis - at blive halveret ved valget 1. november. Men hvordan kan det være, at midterglade Radikale Venstre står til det dårligste valg siden 1998, nu når valget for første gang i mange år står til at blive afgjort på midten Israelerne skal også til stemmeurnerne og de er lidt bedre trænet til valgkamp end vi er herhjemme - det er nemlig hele femte gang på fire år, at israelerne skal stemme om, hvem der skal have magten i landet. Og hvis man skal tro de seneste meningsmålinger, så står det til at blive et tæt valg mellem tidligere premierminister Benjamin Nethanyahu og højrefløjen og så den nuværende premierminister Yair Lapid og hans støtter¨. I løbet af valgkampen har vi her på programmet hver søndag afsat den sidste halve time af Orientering til at nærlæse valgkampen og analysere diverse kampagner og forslag sammen med vores panel af politiske analytikere.

On March 23, 2021, Israel voted in its 24th Knesset, and with it sent Naftali Bennett and Yair Lapid to the premiership. Next week, on November 1, 2022, Israelis return to the polls in order to vote, again—for the fifth time in just over three years—to elect the 25th Knesset and a new prime minister. The central personality of the election is Israel's longest serving prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, who has been leading the opposition since leaving office in 2021, who remains the head of the Likud party, and who could shortly return to the prime ministership. His chief rival is the current prime minister, Yair Lapid, running to return. And then there are new and rising figures who represent a range of interest, attitudes, and identities from throughout Israeli society. This week on the podcast, Mosaic editor Jonathan Silver is joined by Haviv Rettig Gur, the lead political reporter at the Times of Israel and a frequent Mosaic contributor. Together, the two look at Israel's upcoming elections as well as its current political culture. Musical selections in this podcast are drawn from the Quintet for Clarinet and Strings, op. 31a, composed by Paul Ben-Haim and performed by the ARC Ensemble.
Hear: About my shock when I read the treacherous words of the caretaker Prime Minister Yair Lapid, how he panicked to get votes, and how he grovelled to the Arabs to get theirs. And how he brought the sleeping Arab/Israeli conflict to the forefront of the UN agenda by supporting it during his speech to the United Nations Assembly. Another: Appeal to vote tactically with your head not your heart to get the government we need. We don't want to waste votes on small parties that get nowhere. Vote for the largest one, Likud. To make sure of a good right-wing majority. Why: The ridiculous notion of a two-state solution will never work. Presiden Biden who taks of ‘Palestinian' entitlement needs to learn history. You can hear about that in Walter's interview with the American Ambassador which is available now on 'The Walter Bingham File'. Also: Why Israel's President Isaak Herzog should not have accepted Biden's invitation to Washington, He is going next week. The: Foulmouthed Yair Golan, Knesset member for far-left Meretz party is at it again, calling Netanyahu with unparliamentary language. He also compares some events of antisemitic Europe with Israel. There: Is once more not unexpected news from the UN Commission of Enquiry into human rights, accusing Israel of war crimes and calling to arrest our leaders. And: More The Walter Bingham File 25OCT2022 - PODCAST
Israelis are heading to the polls on Nov. 1 for the fifth time in four years. And while former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu hopes this will mark his political comeback with a coalition comprising several far-right and extremist religious parties, his main opponent, Yair Lapid, is looking to capitalize on Netanyahu's criminal indictments and secure another term in office. On Netanyahu's side is Danny Danon, a former member of Knesset sent to New York as Israel's ambassador to the United Nations. And though Danon is not quiet about his ambition to run the Likud party—he ran to replace the long-serving prime minister and has since reiterated his desire to run as leader once Netanyahu exits the post—for now he's walking the party line, hoping to return to elected political life as an MK in the fall. In the meantime, Danon was in Toronto recently to discuss Israeli politics, foreign policy and his new book, In the Lion's Den. He sat down with The CJN Daily for his only Canadian interview to talk about what's at stake for Israel in the next election.

Israeli politics nearing the finish line - 11 days to go till the country's fifth election in three and a half years. But, political turmoil, it appears, is not exclusively Israeli: as many ask if Yair Lapid's tenure as Prime Minister can be the the shortest in Israeli history, the U.K. raises the stakes - and in a breathtakingly rapid fall from power, Prime Minister Liz Truss resigns after only 44 days in office. Yonit and Jonathan discuss the non-stop political news from London and Tel Aviv. A week after Kanye West was removed from social media due to antisemitic remarks he since has doubled down on, yet another high level personality banned from social media - former US President Donald Trump - writes that American Jews “have to get their act together [...] before it is too late”, and despite the fallout between them in the past, former Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is there to defend him.

Mohammad Darawshe, an expert on Arab-Jewish relations in Israel, joins host Neri Zilber for a deep dive into the current state of Arab-Israeli politics ahead of the November 1 Israeli election. They discuss reasons behind the expected low turnout in Arab society, the divisions amongst Arab political parties, how Mansour Abbas is viewed after his historic move to join a governing coalition, and why Arab-Israelis likely hold the key to whether Benjamin Netanyahu returns to power or Yair Lapid continues as prime minister.

Australia has officially said that they do not recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital, a little bit on why rock throwings should be considered as terror attacks here in Israel, more terrorism in Samaria and a speech that shows Yair Lapid's true colors.
On October 12, 2022, Israeli prime minister Yair Lapid approved an agreement with the government of Lebanon to establish maritime borders between the two countries. The deal, brokered by the United States, is important because large fields of natural gas have been discovered under the seabed of the Israel-Lebanon coast—and whichever country controls these fields can reap the financial and energy benefits from them. In some quarters, the establishment of the new borders—without a war being fought, the usual means of fixing borders—is seen as an accomplishment. For those who hold that view, this deal will help stabilize Lebanon and provide it some economic relief. Furthermore, given that Lebanon and Israel are, officially if not currently in fact, still at war, the agreement is seen as evidence of America's power as a mediator in the Middle East. In short, the deal is a diplomatic achievement worth celebrating. This week's podcast guest disagrees. Tony Badran, a research fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, has argued that Israel has traded away its maritime rights in exchange for the mere hope of regional order, and it makes future conflict between Israel and Hizballah-controlled Lebanon more likely, not less. In conversation with Mosaic editor Jonathan Silver, he discusses the political context within which the Israelis and Lebanese established their maritime borders, why America pushed so hard for the agreement, and why the deal harms Israeli security and boosts Hizballah. Musical selections in this podcast are drawn from the Quintet for Clarinet and Strings, op. 31a, composed by Paul Ben-Haim and performed by the ARC Ensemble.
Israel-Lebanon Maritime Border ResolvedHezbollah-dominated Lebanon gets everything in a maritime border dispute with Israel. The deal was pushed on Israel by the hostile administration and agreed to by Israel's caretaker prime minister, Yair Lapid. Another Disgraceful Prisoner ExchangeJoe Biden achieved the release of six innocent Americans imprisoned in Venezuela. But not before two convicted drug traffickers related to the family of Nicolas Maduro were returned after serving only a few years of their 18-year sentences. How God Will Settle Border DisputesAs in ancient Israel, families in the Millennium will receive land inheritances. The same will be true for nations—families grown large.
On today's Watchman Newscast, host Erick Stakelbeck breaks down the continued unraveling of relations between Israel and Russia. On Monday, Israel's interim Prime Minister, Yair Lapid, condemned Russian airstrikes against Ukraine's civilian infrastructure. Russia was none too happy with the criticism but likewise has condemned Israel over the past several months over a host of issues, including Israeli airstrikes in Syria and control over Jerusalem. Will these tensions ultimately have a prophetic outcome? Plus, Israel and Lebanon agree to an historic maritime border deal. Why does opposition leader Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu believe it's a bad deal for the Jewish State? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Anders Vindum opdaterer dig på nogle af overskrifterne fra Israel. Blandt andet: - Rosh Hashanah har indledt en periode med flere jødiske højtider: Mange ortodokse trodsede anbefalinger og rejste til Ukraine for at besøge rabbiners grav. I Israel var der uro i Jerusalem - som meget vel kan fortsætte i oktober, som byder på yom kippur og løvhyttefest. - Da Israels premierminister, Yair Lapid, for nylig talte til FN's Generalforsamling, havde han et overraskende og modigt budskab: Han vil tage initiativ til forhandlinger om en tostatsløsning.
The Jerusalem Post Podcast with Yaakov Katz and Lahav Harkov Lahav and Yaakov talk about the controversy regarding Yair Lapid's UN speech and his endorsement of a two-state solution and how it is just pointless political rhetoric.

They also interview scholar Yael Leibowitz for a talk about the meaning of Rosh Hashana and her upcoming book on Ezra, the man who returned the Jews to Israel from exile in Babylon.

On August 5th, Israel launched a three day operation in the besieged Gaza Strip. They dubbed it “Operation Breaking Dawn”. Israel's acting Prime Minister, Yair Lapid, promote the operation as a preemptive strike to quash what he said were concrete threats by the Palestinian Islamic Jihad movement in Gaza. Over the course of three days 49 Palestinians were killed, including 17 children. According to our documentation, while many PIJ members and affiliates were indeed targeted, the majority of those that were killed were civilian noncombatants. The operation was the second major Israeli offensive on Gaza since last year. It also happened to fall just a few months before Israel's upcoming elections at a time when Israel's current prime minister and his party are struggling in the polls. In the wake of the attack many Palestinians accused Israeli officials of using Gazans as sacrificial pawns in their political games, while Lapid, and others in his government, hailed it as a success. Amjad Iraqi joins Yumna Patel to discuss Israel's political motivations behind the Gaza attack. Amjad is an editor and writer at 972 Magazine, based in Haifa.

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. Tech Israel editor Ricky Ben-David and Knesset correspondent Carrie Keller-Lynn join host Jessica Steinberg for today's podcast. Ben-David talks about Israeli company StemRad, a developer of radiation protection suits that will be used in NASA's Artemis I mission later this month. She also discusses WeWork founder Adam Neumann who had a major fall from grace but now has a new residential real estate startup that nabbed $350 million from a major Silicon Valley venture capital firm. Keller-Lynn reviews the somewhat similar reactions of current prime minister Yair Lapid and former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday to the current Iran nuclear deal. Keller-Lynn then previews her piece on Likud party member Dan Illouz, a French Canadian who has a good chance of making it into the Knesset.

The week began with a ceasefire ending the three-day violent escalation between Israel and Islamic Jihad in Gaza. Now, with the border quiet again, we ask if Israelis have already forgotten the rockets fired at them and the perceived skillful handling of this crisis by prime minister Yair Lapid, and more importantly, will they remember Gaza at all on Election Day? Also this week, Labor party members voted to select their list of candidates for the next Knesset, and on Wednesday, Likud members did the same. Both parties saw surprises and a changing of the guard. In Likud, loyalists supporting Benjamin Netanyahu were rewarded. But what do the lists of candidates mean to the voters - will anyone support or abandon a party because of these names? And which party in Israeli history was the first to hold primaries anyway?

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 health reporter Nathan Jeffay join host Amanda Borschel-Dan. Prime Minister Yair Lapid took to the podium last night to deliver a state of the union following the 66-hour Operation Breaking Dawn and addressed the Palestinian people directly. What was his message? We speak with Keller-Lynn about an analysis she wrote about Lapid's potential political dividends and we hear about the Labor primaries. Keller-Lynn made a trip to Ashkelon on Sunday, while rockets were still raining down. What did she see? During Operation Breaking Dawn, Jeffay highlighted the new rocket-proofed hospital at The ADI Negev-Nahalat Eran Rehabilitation Village — located just 40 kilometers — 25 miles — from the Gaza border, next to the city of Ofakim. We learn about Israeli scientists who are working to develop a “precision weapon” against bowel disorders consisting of viruses that fight bacteria. And finally, an Israeli lab has grown synthetic mouse embryos with brains and beating hearts — in an egg-free sperm-free procedure that used stem cells taken from skin. Discussed articles include: Lapid offers a new path to residents of Gaza: Livelihood, dignity and peace Lapid is the Gaza operation's political winner, but can this be converted to votes?

On this week's episode, Haaretz's national security analyst Amos Harel joins the podcast to discuss the dramatic events in Israel and Gaza. Why did Israel strike the Iran-backed Islamic Jihad organization, and why is Hamas, the most powerful group in Gaza, staying out of this round of fighting? Amos explains the behind-the-scenes dynamic between Israel and the different Palestinian organizations, and warns Israel's leadership of the law of unintended consequences as the death toll rises in Gaza. Later on the show, hosts Allison Kaplan Sommer and Amir Tibon talk about the political implications of the fighting, which is taking place amidst an Israeli election campaign. How do Israelis view prime minister Yair Lapid's handling of this crisis, and where did he find a symbolic victory over opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu? In addition, Allison asks Amir what his neighbors in a kibbutz right next to the Gaza border think about this round of fighting.

With just under three months to go before the election, Haaretz's Election Overdose podcast asks the million dollar question: can we, and should we, trust the polls? What are they worth at this point in time, and do they really serve the public, or are they misleading voters in the service of murky political interests? Also on this episode, we ask whether Likud's old-new economic plan has a point, will the far-right Religious Zionism party get its act together, do either of the candidates for Meretz's leadership have an idea of what the party stands for and do the members of Yesh Atid really think Yair Lapid is second only to God? Each week, hosts Anshel Pfeffer and Dahlia Scheindlin will bring all the news and analysis an Israel-election junkie needs, including polls, guests and trivia tidbits about the strangest parties in Israeli history.

President Biden is in Israel, the 10th trip of his lifetime but his first as America's commander in chief.

Israel is preparing for the arrival of President Joe Biden next month, but suddenly a change of plans: Prime Minister Naftali Bennett will no longer be the one to host the American leader. Instead, it'll likely be a new prime minister, the current foreign minister Yair Lapid. That's because after one year heading a diverse coalition, Bennett announced he's dissolving parliament following a series of defections from his own party. His political partner Lapid is set to take over until a new government is formed. Watching all this unfold is of course Benjamin Netanyahu, who hopes the collapse of the government means he can come back on top. Journalist and Bibi biographer Anshel Pfeffer joins the show to discuss.
