A few weeks ago, shock waves hit the Middle East, and particularly Israel, when word came out of Amman that a planned coup against King Abdullah The Second was foiled and that the most senior figure in the plot was the King’s half-brother, Prince Hamza, who was confined to his residence. But then it turned out that there was less to the story than met the ears and that it was more conversations than conspiracies . The Hashemite regime seems fully in control and the family feud is being mediated by the siblings’ uncle. Nevertheless, the episode served to highlight Jordan’s unique strategic position in the region and the stakes in its stability.
The program offers the viewer deeper understanding about current events in Israel. The topics vary from domestic and foreign policy to social changes, archaelogy and religion.
The program is hosted by TV7 Israel News anchor Jonathan Hessen.
