On today’s Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten, news reports indicate that Prime Minister Netanayhu, along with Mossad Chief Yossi Cohen, made a secret trip to Saudi Arabia yesterday, to meet with top officials. The meeting happened as Gulf States this week voiced their concern that a Biden administration would rejoin the dangerous Iran nuclear deal. Could the meeting signal that normalization between Saudi Arabia and Israel is on the way? And will the Gulf turn to Israel as its top partner to face the Iranian threat if a new White House leads to a change in policy? All this plus the latest news from Israel, on this week’s show.

On this week’s Israel Uncensored with Josh Hasten, Josh says that with election chaos reigning in the US, whether projected election winner Joe Biden becomes president, or current President Donald Trump is able to prove voter fraud and stay in office, Israel needs to step up and do what’s in its best interests regardless of outside influence. While Josh acknowledges that President Trump was Israel’s best friend ever in the White House, and gratitude is in order, it’s the Israeli leadership which has to change its mentality and step up no matter who is in the White House, at 10 Downing Street, etc. Living in Israel for 19 years, Josh says that his president isn’t Joe Biden, but President Rivlin along with PM Netanyahu.

Israel’s coronavirus cabinet is scheduled to meet later this week to discuss a proposed gradual opening up of the country, but nothing is certain.
