Haaretz podcast: Trump-loving Israelis brace for a Biden bombshell

-- : --

The team discusses how Biden’s victory and Trump’s defeat will affect Israeli politics in general and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in particular.

We also ask: Why will all eyes be on Iran during the transition period and the first weeks of the Biden Administration? What will become of the “Deal of the Century” and the Abraham Accords? Who will replace settlement-loving David Friedman as U.S. ambassador? And will Biden make good on his promise to put the fight against antisemitism high on his agenda?
