Daily Briefing Nov. 21 – Israel and its new BFF, the United Kingdom

Editor David Horovitz and diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman discuss the UK designation of Hamas as a terrorist organization and President Herzog’s visit to London

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.

Founding editor David Horovitz and diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman join host Jessica Steinberg on today’s podcast.

Horovitz and Berman discuss the decision of the UK — which they speak of as Israel’s staunch ally — to designate the entirety of Hamas as a terror organization and outlaw support for the group.

They also look at President Isaac Herzog’s current trip to London for an official three-day visit that is both ceremonial and political.

Berman speaks about his run along the Tel Aviv beach with the UAE ambassador, who was engaging in some sports diplomacy. He also talks about a scoop regarding US State Department employees who are protesting President Biden’s vaccine mandate.

Discussed articles include:
