The speakers will analyze the 4th Israeli election in 2 years. They will analyze the latest results, compare them to the last 3 elections, and discuss coalition possibilities and their implications. As Israel muddles forward
in an attempt to establish a new government – notwithstanding the continued division over the legitimacy of Benyamin Netanyahu’s candidacy for Prime Minister - “round four” was in fact surprisingly different than the
earlier three elections rounds. How will varied possible coalitions shape Israeli domestic and foreign policies? What are the prospects of a fifth election in the coming year? Among the topics to be explored: the evolving
influence of Israel’s Arab citizens; a crack in ultra-Orthodox allegiances; and Israeli society’s growing complacency towards racist political parties. Come join the analysis followed by discussion.
