Daily Briefing Apr 25: Day 202 – Why US students must be schooled on protesters’ goals

Editor David Horovitz lays out the strategy of anti-Israel rallies across America, discusses the absent US greenlight for Rafah op and weighs in on the resurgence of AMIA justice

Welcome to The Times of Israel’s Daily Briefing, your 20-minute audio update on what’s happening in Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world.

It is day 202 of the war with Hamas. Editor David Horovitz joins host Amanda Borschel-Dan for today’s episode.

So-called pro-Palestinian rallies have sprouted up on US campuses, from Columbia University in New York — where in-person classes have been canceled — to the University of Southern California on Wednesday, just hours after police at a Texas university aggressively detained dozens of protesters. Horovitz describes what he believes are the protesters’ goals.

A senior Israeli defense official said Wednesday that the IDF has conducted all necessary preparations to take Gaza’s southernmost city of Rafah and can launch an operation the moment it gets government approval. But will the IDF also wait for US approval?

Thirty years after the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, Argentina has asked Pakistan and Sri Lanka to arrest Iran’s interior minister Ahmad Vahidi, who is a lead suspect in planning the attacks. Why is Argentina again interested in seeking justice for the bombing?
