We ask whether Netanyahu’s prime time vaccination Saturday night was a PR stunt or whether he should be applauded as the first world leader to publicly get the coronavirus shot, as we assess his successes and failures when it comes to leading Israel through the pandemic. 

We also discuss the assault by Iranian hackers against Israeli companies and national security infrastructure in light of the devastating Russian cyber aggression in the United States.
