5/20/21 Kalmen Barkin on Israel’s Fraught Past and Uncertain Political Future

by | May 21, 2021 | Interviews

Kalmen Barkin is back for an update on Israeli politics. In the last two weeks, Knesset opposition leader Yair Lapid got the opportunity to form a coalition government, and possibly oust Prime Minister Netanyahu for the first time since 2009. But just afterward, as Barkin explains, violence erupted at the al-Aqsa mosque, in response to Palestinian protests about settlements in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood. These events have thrown Israeli politics into turmoil, and it’s not at all clear what will happen going forward. If Netanyahu can hold onto power, it wouldn’t be the first time he’s done so by leveraging uncertain circumstances and supposedly temporary powers. Barkin also explains much of the history that has led the Israelis and Palestinians to this point of conflict.
