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.
Today’s guests are senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur and political reporter Tal Schneider, with Raoul Wootliff hosting.
On today’s show, we look at the physical fight that took place yesterday between Religious Zionism MK Itamar Ben Gvir and Joint List chair Ayman Odeh, and ask what it says about Israeli politics today.
And, following 26th-anniversary memorials for slain prime minister Yitzhak Rabin this week, we assess the ongoing battle over the lessons to be learned from the 1995 assassination of Israel’s premier: how former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu is still trying to challenge the stain of being part of the climate of hostility toward Rabin; Foreign Minister Yair Lapid’s bitter speech over the “heirs” of Rabin’s murderers; and the Rabin family celebrating Netanyahu’s fall.
