In Episode 9 of Election Overdose podcast, Anshel Pfeffer and Dahlia Scheindlin try to make sense of the new Israeli right-wing, with the help of 'New Hope' candidate Dani Dayan, former Israeli consul to New York and ex-Yesha Council head. Is it all about replacing Benjamin Netanyahu or is there some ideology there as well?
We’ll also ask whether the 130 generals calling upon Benny Gantz to drop out of the race may have actually increased Gantz’s chances to stay until the end? What was Netanyahu hoping to achieve by demanding his allies sign a pledge of allegiance to him? And who is preparing a voting fraud conspiracy theory for the day after? Oh, and what did Producer Jonathan dress up as for Purim?
