Scott talks with Philip Weiss about the political implications of an Israeli government run by Ben-Gvir, a far-right extreme zionist. Weiss gives a quick background on the volatile last five years of Israeli politics before the two jump into who Ben-Gvir is and what he may do when in power. To both, Ben-Gvir represents the worst of modern Israeli politics. But there may be some upsides too.
Discussed on the show:
- “Israel lobby’s realignment over Ben-Gvir is giving Biden room to criticize” (Mondoweiss)
- Jordan Peterson interviews Benjamin Netanyahu
