Host Simon Spungin is joined this week by senior Haaretz columnist Chemi Shalev.

We discuss the normalization deal between Israel and United Arab Emirates, U.S. President Donald Trump’s desire to turn the agreement into arms deals and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s hopes and aspirations for the coming months – including the presidential election and his upcoming corruption trial.

We also discuss how the Palestinians have, once again, been sidelined by Middle Eastern diplomacy, how the Netanyahu-Trump relationship has almost killed off bipartisan support for Israel and what a Biden presidency could mean for Israel.
