Daily Briefing Jan. 12: Netanyahu coalition rapidly delivers judicial shakeup bill
Zman Yisrael editor Biranit Goren and Knesset reporter Carrie Keller-Lynn tackle legal reforms; also, bill revoking terrorists’ citizenship, cost of living triage and too much meat
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.
Zman Yisrael editor Biranit Goren and Knesset correspondent Carrie Keller-Lynn join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on today’s episode.
Justice Minister Yariv Levin published draft bills that will enact his judicial reforms Wednesday night and this morning MK Simcha Rothman also proposed a reform bill. We’ve known they were coming. Are there any surprises here?
Also last night, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich announced a triage plan to combat the high cost of living. How much will this really be felt by the average Israeli?
Yesterday in the Knesset, a bill that would revoke Israeli citizenship for terrorists advanced. We hear more about this mostly consensus piece of legislation.
Finally, Zman Yisrael published an article on Israelis’ eating habits versus international standards. Spoiler: We find out why obesity is rising in the Holy Land.
Discussed articles include:
Levin unveils bills to neuter High Court, deny it almost all means to rein in gov’t
Government unveils ’emergency’ economic plan to reduce utility, gas and tax hikes
Bid to revoke citizenship of PA-paid terror convicts advances with opposition’s help
