PODCAST: Talking Turkey (and Iran): What’s cooking beyond Israel’s horizons

A quick 15-minute podcast with ToI editors and reporters to catch you up on what’s important today

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 panel comprises Times of Israel senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur and diplomatic correspondent Lazar Berman, along with host Amanda Borschel-Dan.

On International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we look at the growing debate among US Jewish groups over the IHRA anti-Semitism definition and ask what it represents about Israel’s place in the battle against modern Jew-hatred.

With Biden’s State Department already announcing renewed relations with Palestinians, our panel assesses the possible coming policy changes and wonders how Israel can avoid conflict with the new administration. And with new diplomatic horizons emerging, we look at how Israel is approaching rapprochement with Turkey.

Finally, Berman discusses his interview with Israel’s new envoy to the UAE and how the mission is preparing for the fruits of normalization.

Discussed articles include:
