3/20/20 Philip Weiss on Israel’s Uncertain Political Future

by | Mar 23, 2020

Scott talks to Philip Weiss about the latest in Israeli politics, where Benjamin Netanyahu still has neither been removed from power in a decisive election, nor tried for his corruption charges. His main opponent, Benny Gantz, may now be offered the chance to form a minority government, but if he cannot, there could be yet another round of elections. But with the global coronavirus outbreak, Weiss explains that Netanyahu’s approval ratings are now as high as ever—he and Scott think there’s little chance he will be ousted any time soon. Meanwhile, there is great concern for the health of the Palestinians living in ghetto-like conditions on the West Bank, but whom the Israeli government seems to have little interest in helping.
