Less than three months before Israel’s general elections, Israel’s political arena is going through dramatic changes. New actors are joining the arena and some of Israel’s political fixtures are fading out. An election campaign that started as a referendum on Benjamin Netanyahu’s performance and ethics seems to reflect some deeper undercurrents in Israeli politics.
For a snapshot and an analysis of the race toward the May 9th general elections, please join a briefing call with Israeli political analyst Tal Schneider.
Tal Schneider is a veteran political and diplomatic correspondent, currently with Israel’s economic daily Globes. Earlier in her career, Schneider was the Washington bureau chief of Maariv. In 2011, she established an independent political blog. Her “Plog” quickly became a leading source for news and analysis and a standard-setter for ethical, balanced political coverage, and catapulted her to the front line of Israeli TV and radio pundits. Schneider’s Plog won the 2012 Excellence in Digital Journalism Award by Google Inc. & Tel-Aviv’s Journalists Association.
