99 Out of 120 Knesset Members Tell Biden: Don’t!

Episode 15: Mike and Gadi discuss a rare moment of consensus in Israeli politics

February 22, 2024

Recently, almost the whole Knesset voted on a resolution opposed to any American attempt to force a “solution” to the conflict between Israel and Hamas (with the Arab parties voting no, and the Labor party abstaining). Gadi and Mike discuss the reasons the Biden Administration may have for moving forward and recognizing a Palestinian state, what the repercussions of such a move might be, and the far-reaching consequences it may have for Israel’s strategic position in the region as well as for its domestic politics.

Plus: this is how a group of IDF soldiers embarrassed the head of the Israeli roof organization of labor unions.
