Featuring Shlomi Kofman and Khaled Elgindy on March 15, 2021

When Israelis head to the polls on March 23, it will be the fourth time in just two years. The most recent coalition government fell apart last December, when the Knesset (Israel’s parliament) failed to pass a budget, automatically triggering new elections. The vote is regarded as a referendum on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanayau who is facing corruption charges. At the same time, Israel leads the world in COVID-19 vaccinations and is normalizing relations with some of its Arab neighbors. The Palestianians have been sidelined and will likely hold their own elections in May. In this week’s episode, World Affairs (Northern California) gets two perspectives on the region’s political transitions, one Israeli and one Palestinian.
