Facing four criminal investigations and his first real political challenge after a decade in as prime minister, how do things look for Benjamin Netanyahu staying another term in office? Listen to Gregg Roman, the Middle East Forum’s director, for a preview of the elections to the 21st Knesset with an in-depth introduction to the parties, key players, issues, media, and the polls of the April 9 election. He will discuss the platforms and promises being made by the parties and review the religious-secular, right-centrist-left, Jewish-Muslim divisions. Mr. Roman will conclude by considering key issues including the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, West Bank building and funding, the Jewish state law, budget priorities, and the U.S.-Israel relationship.
