Daily Briefing July 6: Could the November elections be Netanyahu’s last stand?

Diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman came back from France in the oui hours and updates us on the PM’s progress; analyst Haviv Rettig Gur claims Likud is losing patience

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.

Diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman and senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on today’s podcast.

Prime Minister Yair Lapid had several missions to accomplish on his trip to Paris on Tuesday. What were they and how did he do?

While Lapid was in Paris, did he by chance meet with Yael Braun-Pivet, the new speaker of the French National Assembly? She is the fourth-most senior official in France after the president, prime minister, and Senate speaker.

Berman updates us on the tenuous Israel-Poland relationship and how there is a recent warming of ties.

Rettig Gur lays out his argument for why the November elections are former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s last hurrah.

Discussed articles include:

In Paris, Lapid urges response to Iranian nuclear violations, warns Hezbollah

Jewish lawmaker becomes first female speaker of French National Assembly

After year-long spat over Holocaust law, Poland says it’s returning envoy to Israel

Netanyahu embarks on a campaign that’s shaping up as his last hurrah
