Host Simon Spungin is joined this week by Haaretz diploamtic correspondent, Noa Landau, and by senior correspondent Chemi Shalev.
In this two-part, socially distanced and virus-responsible episode:
Part 1: We discuss the mass protests held across Israel against the government's handling of the coronavirus crisis - and specifically the economic aspects of the plan. We also discuss the latest moves to bypass the Knesset and the threat this could pose to democracy in Israel.
Part 2: We move on to the United States, where a presidential election will be held in a little under four months. Although Israel is not currently on the agenda, this could be a fateful election for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu - no matter who wins.
