The reign of Prime Minister Netanyahu, the longest-serving prime minister of the State of Israel, has drawn to a close and Israel has a new unity government with Naftali Bennett of the right-leaning Yamina Party and Yair Lapid of the left-leaning Yesh Atid Party. What role did Mansour Abbas of the Ra’am Party have? What dynamics were in play behind the scenes to create this government? Will it be able to survive, or will Israel be headed to a fifth election in two-and-a-half years? Will there be a consensus among the unity government leaders on issues of national security having to do with the Palestinians and Iran?
Alex Traiman, managing director and Jerusalem bureau chief of JNS.org, will address these questions and more.
