Daily Briefing Sept. 14 – Bennett and Sissi: The messages behind the meeting

Diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman and senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur discuss the Israel-Egypt summit and possible outcomes of ongoing budget debates

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 diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman and senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur, with Jessica Steinberg hosting.

Berman leads the podcast with a conversation about Monday’s meeting in Sharm el-Sheikh between Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, the first between the two countries’ leaders in a decade, and one that could offer signals about their intentions.

Rettig Gur fills us in on a piece he’s writing about Knesset committees and the 2021 budget — the wrangling, politicking and negotiations that plague Bennett’s weak coalition — with plenty of political drama.

Discussed articles include:
