Host Simon Spungin is joined by Haaretz editor-in-chief Aluf Benn and correspondent Judy Maltz.

In Part One, Aluf discusses the 'crime minister' protests against Benjamin Netanyahu, the optics of the PM's million-shekel tax refund, the arrest of a decorated Air Force commander, Benny Gantz's defection from the anti-Netanyahu camp, and why Bibi isn't to blame for the spike in new coronavirus cases in Israel.
