Daily Briefing Jun 19: Breaking up a gov’t is hard to do; looming judicial ‘reforms’

Editor David Horovitz speaks to rumors surrounding the coalition longevity and imminent threats to checks and balances; diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman talks energy security

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.

Editor David Horovitz and diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman join host Amanda Borschel-Dan.

Horovitz updates us on the rumors circling about the upcoming week’s developments in the teetering coalition.

Berman addresses dire headlines of specific threats against Israelis who are currently in Turkey. Why would Iran target Israelis in Turkey of all places?

Russia is putting together a proposal for a UN Security Council resolution condemning Israel over last week’s airstrikes in Syria. Is this significant?

The world is waking up to the need for energy security in light of the ongoing Ukraine war. What is the trend here?

Horovitz gives highlights of an op-ed he wrote about the potentially imminent threat to Israel’s judicial system.

And as a fun way to start the week, he shares a little anecdote about new octogenarian Sir Paul McCartney.

Discussed articles include:
