Modern Tribes of Israeli Politics

Speaker: Amir Tibon, Washington, D. C. Correspondent for Haaretz

 

For the first time in Israel's 70-year history, the country has gone to three elections in the course of less than a year. What are the roots of this political and legal crisis? Why has no solution emerged? And could Israel's internal rifts lead to even a fourth or fifth election? Join us for a conversation with award-winning Israeli journalist Amir Tibon, the Washington correspondent for Haaretz newspaper, who will talk about how social and religious divisions in Israel are shaping the country's fractured political system. Amir spoke with IBF last year ahead of Israel's "first" election of 2019; he will return on again to talk about the latest events in the country - and what comes next.
