Welcome to The Times of Israel’s Daily Briefing: Your 15-minute audio update on what’s happening in Israel, the Middle East, and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday.
Today’s panel is founding editor David Horovitz and Arab affairs correspondent Adam Boxerman, along with host Amanda Borschel-Dan.
We open the show with a look at what is said to have happened at Iran’s Natantz nuclear facility early Sunday morning. What was the “accident” that took place and what damage did it cause? And what of Israel’s alleged involvement?
Then, turning to domestic politics, we discuss the impact of the Israeli Arab Ra’am party’s charter and whether they are open to changing it. And with Mansour Abbas now as kingmaker, we ask whether the Israeli right could support a government backed by the Islamist party.
Finally, we assess the recent police beating of Joint List MK Ofer Cassif. What does footage of the incident show? What are police claiming? And what does the outcry from across the political spectrum show us?
