Description

In this week's episode of Haaretz Weekly, Haaretz's Anshel Pfeffer joins host Simon Spungin to discuss a wide range of subjects, from Israel's recently confirmed military activity in Syria to the spate of Jewish terror attacks against Palestinians in the West Bank. Why are outgoing IDF chief Gadi Eizenkot and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu suddenly speaking so openly about airstrikes on Iranian targets in Syria? What will the U.S. military withdrawal mean for Israel's freedom of operation in the region? Why are centrist and right-of-center politicians so taciturn when it comes to condemning acts of violence committed by Jewish extremists?  What could Russia possibly hope to achieve by interfering in the Israeli election? And could a former defense minister who once called Peace Now a virus be the knight in shining armor for the anti-Bibi crowd?
