Deja Vu All Over Again? – Israeli Elections Redux
A month after it was sworn in, Israel’s Knesset voted to dissolve itself and drag the Israeli public into another election cycle.
What will this campaign look like? How much of an appetite does the Israeli public have for another round? Do the new elections provide a second chance for Benjamin Netanyahu’s opposition to depose him? How realistic is such a scenario? Will the right more effectively coalesce to come out stronger? And how about the left -- will it unite? Will the Arab parties re-unite?
Allison Kaplan Sommer of Israel’s Haaretz daily addressed these and other questions at a briefing call on June 6th .
Developments are emerging fast and furiously indicating that Trump’s War Cabinet, helmed by John Bolton and Mike Pompeo, is moving the US to the precipice of an unnecessary and devastating war against Iran.
On May 23, APN hosted a briefing call with two experts on US-Iran relations and the embattled Iran nuclear deal: Mary Kaszynski, Deputy Director of Policy at the Ploughshares Fund, and Barbara Slavin, Director of the Future of Iran Initiative at the Atlantic Council and renowned diplomatic reporter.
On April 10th, APN hosted a briefing call with strategic affairs expert Yossi Alpher, who analyzed the results of the Israeli elections and discussed their possible impact and the challenges we now face.
Alpher, an independent security analyst, is the former director of the Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies at Tel Aviv University, a former senior official with Israel’s Mossad, and a former IDF intelligence officer. He is the author of Hard Questions Tough Answers, APN’s weekly analysis of Israeli and Middle Eastern strategic affairs.
