The Likud Victory: Naysayers and Champions19 March 2023
American-Jewish columnist Peter Beinart says that the new Israeli government should be punished for its current rejection of the "two-state solution." He is calling on Diaspora Jewry to protest outside any event that PM Benjamin Netanyahu and members of his cabinet attend abroad. He is also advocating freezing the assets of "pro-settler" leaders. VOI's Josh Hasten rants on what he considers the columnist's extremist positions.
Then, former Yesha Council Spokesman Elie Pieprz tells Josh that he believes Netanyahu will withstand world pressure and continue to develop Jewish communities in Jerusalem and in Judea and Samaria.
Finally, Jeremy Wimpfheimer, co-manager of the Likud English Language Campaign, explains how his team helped Netanyahu form his message, which resonated with voters and led to a surprising election victory.
