Daily Briefing Mar. 19: Did Herzog drop the ball with his ‘People’s Framework’?

Haviv Rettig Gur breaks down president’s impassioned speech on Wednesday; Emanuel Fabian updates us on protest violence & two German tourists attacked in Nablus

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.

Senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur and military correspondent Emanuel Fabian join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on today’s episode.

For the 11th straight week, protesters against the judicial overhaul took to the streets on Saturday night. According to a count by the Crowd Solution company that was cited by Channel 13 news, a combined 260,000 people demonstrated across the country. But what appeared to be different this time was an escalated level of violence against protesters. Fabian provides an update.

On Saturday, two German tourists who entered the northern West Bank city of Nablus in an Israeli ride-sharing vehicle from Tel Aviv were violently attacked by Palestinians. Fabian explains what we know so far.

On Wednesday night all eyes were on President Isaac Herzog as he unveiled his “People’s Framework” proposal to replace the government’s plans to radically overhaul the judicial system. Rettig Gur explains how, even after hours of talks, Herzog likely dropped the ball.
