The recent election in Israel has provoked massive protests and a surge of commentary in the United States. But what does this moment represent for progressive Israeli Jewish and Palestinian activists? Is the current government a new and unprecedented threat to Israeli democracy, or the latest stage in a long story? And how should Israelis and Palestinians committed to justice and equality — and their American allies — respond? Join Mikhael Manekin and Rula Hardal to discuss these urgent questions.
