Israel in a Time of a Turbulent Middle East
A discussion about current affair concerns and challenges in a region which never suffers from a dull moment. Israel is facing its fifth general election campaign in three years. What will be the outcome of this round, and what influence will it have on Jewish communities in the diaspora? Will any power in the world stop Iran in the nuclear race? What are the prospects for another violent circle in Gaza strip? Is there any future for the Israeli/Palestinian peace talks? And what is the future of the new, unusual Israeli government?
