Israelis are heading to the polls again on Tuesday, for the country’s fourth election in two years. This election will determine the future of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is trying to amass a majority that will allow him to evade prosecution over corruption charges. It will also determine the future of Israel as a country – and the strength of its democracy, economy and relations with key allies like the United States.

What you need to know about Israel's unprecedented election: WATCH Haaretz's special briefing

On Sunday, less than 36 hours before polling places open, Haaretz hosted a special pre-election briefing for readers and subscribers, focusing on the issues at the heart of this election, the potential governments that could be formed once it is over, and the chances of another election taking place this summer.

Our team of writers and analysts – Noa Landau, Anshel Pfeffer and Allison Kaplan Sommer – participated in a fascinating discussion about the stakes of this election and what it could mean for Israel, the Middle East and the U.S.-Israel relationship.
