Joining Ben on this week’s podcast is MK Ofer Shelah, a leader in the Yesh Atid party and former journalist. Shelah gives his thoughts on the recent unity government between Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party and Benny Gantz’s Blue & White Coalition, and whether he thinks Gantz has any real political leverage in this arrangement. Will Netanyahu actually transfer power over to Gantz? And does Shelah think Yesh Atid has any say in the decision to annex Israeli settlements? Listen in to Ben and Ofer’s conversation on Netanyahu’s rise in the polls, the impact of a Trump reelection, and maddening possibility of another election in Israel.
