Making Sense Of Israel’s New Government: A Fireside Chat With Lahav Harkov, Senior Contributing Editor & Diplomatic Correspondent Of The Jerusalem Post.

January 4, 2023

Two months after Israelis voted in their fifth election in three years, Israel has a new government – of sorts. Though Benjamin Netanyahu is back as Israel’s prime minister, the composition of the new governing coalition is different than what it’s been in the past, and some new members of the government, as a result of their right-leaning politics, have attracted a lot of criticism from the news media and elsewhere.

But how much of the criticism of Israel’s government is accurate, and how much is simply a relic of knee-jerk anti-Israel sentiment?

To help separate fact from fiction, our guest on this week’s podcast is Lahav Harkov. Lahav is the Senior Contributing Editor and Diplomatic Correspondent of The Jerusalem Post, and is well-connected to the country’s top lawmakers and diplomats.
