Show Notes

With the war in Gaza apparently entering its third phase, IPF Atid Director Shanie Reichman hosts Tel Aviv-based journalist and Policy Advisor Neri Zilber to discuss the current state of play in the Israel-Hamas war, Israeli politics, and the region. They discuss the reported assassination of senior Hamas official Saleh al-Arouri in Beirut, the social implications of Israel’s military reservists beginning to return home, the latest on the Israeli hostages who remain in captivity, the High Court’s decision to strike down the reasonableness law, and more. 

As Israel pushes forward with its war in Gaza and grapples with political turmoil at home, Israel Policy Forum experts have been providing timely, clear-headed, and sober analysis on the ongoing conflict. 

  • In TIME Magazine, Chief Policy Officer Michael Koplow and Israel Policy Forum CEO David A. Halperin explain why the U.S. must push for a proactive Israeli vision on the day after in Gaza that is compatible with its regional allies’ priorities. Read here.
  • In a CNN interview with Christiane Amanpour, Israel Fellow Nimrod Novik, a former advisor to Shimon Peres, discusses Israel’s reported killing of senior Hamas official Saleh al-Arouri.  Watch here.
  • In this week’s Koplow Column, Michael Koplow unpacks the High Court’s decision to strike down the reasonableness law and why Netanyahu and the opposition should leverage this moment to resolve a question at the core of the debate over the judiciary. Read here.
  • In the Liberal Patriot, Michael Koplow writes on how the U.S. can bridge the gap with Israel over the question of the PA returning to Gaza. Read here.
