Israel’s unprecedented 3rd round of elections

Earlier this week, Israelis headed for the polling stations for an unprecedented third round of elections in 11 months. Unfortunately, their wish for a clear-cut decision did not come true. Outgoing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu survived and even increased his Likud party’s representation in the Knesset, the Parliament, but did not manage to have the threshold necessary for a stable government.

What’s next for Israel’s political parties and persons? Guests Prof. Zeev Khanin, Expert on Russian and Middle Eastern Studies, Bar Ilan and Ariel Universities, and Dr. Yonatan Freeman, Political Science Dept. at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Analyst Amir Oren. Host Jonathan Hessen.
