The Heat: Netanyahu set to lose power in Israel

The Heat

Israel will have a new prime minister after the opposition was able to negotiate a very diverse coalition. But how long will it hold?

A group of parties across the political spectrum has agreed to form a governing coalition in Israel. The Knesset is expected to vote on it next week, ending Benjamin Netanyahu’s run as prime minister. It also ends two years of political deadlock.

To discuss:

  • Guy Ziv is an associate professor at American University
  • Sara Yael Hirschhorn is a visiting assistant professor in Israel Studies at Northwestern University
  • Ian Lustick is the chair in the political science department of the University of Pennsylvania
  • Moien Odeh is a human rights attorney
