TOI talks: The dark underbelly of the start-up nation

On this week’s episode: A soldier facing a murder charge for shooting an unarmed attacker; what Brussels can learn from terrorism in Israel; Trump at AIPAC and Sanders in the cold; and the international binary options scam run from Tel Aviv

Raoul Wootliff is the The Times of Israel's political correspondent.

The panel this week discusses the controversial video footage showing an IDF soldier shooting an unarmed Palestinian attacker in the head, after the assailant stabbed another soldier.

The deadly bombings in Brussels raise fears of a changing reality in Europe. The panel asks what the Continent can learn from Israel’s experience of regular terror attacks.

Plus, after addresses at the AIPAC pro-Israel policy conference from nearly all the major presidential candidates, the panel assesses the seemingly warm welcome given to Republican presidential front-funner Donald Trump and the speech that Jewish Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders chose not to give to the conference.
