Can Israeli Politicians Be Trusted?23 February 2023
Filling in for Live@Five host Glen Ladau, VOI's Mottle Wolfe raises the issue of the assault on the integrity of Israeli politicians involved in election campaigning. Meanwhile, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat gained acclaim this week by tackling a knife-wielding terrorist on the streets of the city.
Then, Zionist Union party leader Isaac Herzog tells the Washington Post that he trusts President Barack Obama to make a good deal with Iran, which does not pose an existential threat to Israel.
The Panel also discusses the fact that Jewish Home party candidate Bezalel Smotrich has called gay people "abnormal."
Host: Mottle Wolfe
Panel: Jeremy Saltan, Ari Abramowitz, Molly Livingstone, Daniel Seaman
