Daily Briefing July 13 – Reshaping Israel’s foreign policy from East to West

Tune in Sunday through Thursday to hear ToI editors and reporters quickly catch you up on what’s important today

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 comprises diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman and breaking news editor Amy Spiro, along with host Raoul Wootliff.

On today’s show, amid a flurry of diplomatic activity, newly sworn-in President Isaac Herzog spoke yesterday with Turkey’s Erdogan. We discuss the significance of the call and the future of Israel-Turkey ties.

At the same time, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid met yesterday in Brussels with European Union foreign ministers and publicly backed a two-state solution with the Palestinians. We hear about his efforts to reshape Israel’s foreign policy.

And from the west to the east, we try to understand the effect on the Jewish state of the burgeoning rivalry between Saudi Arabia and new Israeli ally the United Arab Emirates.

Finally, with the Olympics around the corner, we hear about one Israeli athlete looking to fulfill her dreams at the Games and how Israel’s medal hopes could play out in Tokyo.
