Daily Briefing Nov. 11 – Jewish Republicans debate BDS and Trump

US correspondent Jacob Magid reviews the Republican Jewish Coalition gathering while environmental reporter Sue Surkes considers next steps following the Glasgow climate conference

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.

US political correspondent Jacob Magid and environment reporter Sue Surkes join host Jessica Steinberg on today’s podcast.

Magid reports from Las Vegas, where he covered the Republican Jewish Coalition’s annual leadership conference. Magid fills us in on who was there, what topics were discussed and whether Jewish Republicans are interested in having former president Donald Trump run again.

He also discusses the statement made at the conference by former US envoy to the United Nations Nikki Haley, who broadly criticized pro-Israel lobbying group AIPAC for hosting politicians who support the Iran nuclear deal.

Surkes offers highlights, concerns and the to-do list for countries following COP26, the climate change conference she covered in Glasgow last week. The challenges are tremendous, says Surkes, as countries have a mighty task ahead of them.

Discussed articles include:

In Las Vegas, Jewish Republican confab weighs one more roll of the dice on Trump

GOP senator: Flipping House and Senate will let Republicans pass anti-BDS laws

Nikki Haley goes after AIPAC for hosting lawmakers who support Iran deal

With 40,000 delegates, COP26 radiates energy. But will it bring real change?
