Daily Briefing Dec. 22 – Is the US listening to Israeli warnings on Iran?

US correspondent Jacob Magid on Israel’s influence over Iranian nuclear talks in Vienna; and political reporter Tal Schneider on Aryeh Deri’s get-out-of-jail-free card

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.

Political reporter Tal Schneider and US correspondent Jacob Magid join Raoul Wootliff on today’s podcast.

We start today’s show with a look at the current visit to Israel of US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan, and assess Israeli influence over the Iranian nuclear talks in Vienna.

We try to understand the US decision to shelve plans to reopen the US consulate in Jerusalem serving Palestinians.

We hear about Shas leader Aryeh Deri’s reported plea deal which would see him admit to various tax offenses but be able to remain in Israeli politics.

And finally, we look at criticism of former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu for releasing an attack video against the new government — in English.

Discussed articles include:
