Gil Hoffman interviews Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and asks him about how US President Donald Trump’s diplomatic plan could be advanced if he or Trump are not re-elected in their current elections. Gil asks about the prime minister about his challenges, from Benny Gantz to Avigdor Liberman, from Iran to Hamas and what he will do if re-elected to help English-speaking immigrants to Israel. Netanyahu also speaks about the Coronavirus and chances that Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard will be allowed to move to Israel.

Eli Avidar, a member of Knesset from Avigdor Liberman’s Yisrael Beytenu party, tells Gil Hoffman that he believes a coalition will be formed after the March 2 election and a fourth election will be avoided, because US President Donald Trump will intervene and make sure there will be a government that can implement his Middle East peace plan. Avidar explains what Liberman means when he says he supports the formation of a “liberal Zionist government” after he called for a national unity government ahead of the last election. Gil then analyzes Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s campaign strategy, talks about Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas’s upcoming speech at the UN and explains why the Super Bowl and the Oscars made him proud to be Israeli.

Gil Hoffman explains why there have been not two but seven elections so far over the past year, and why there might end up being as many as 12 before a new government is finally formed. Gil then goes into the impact of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu waging a political battle against the media. He concludes with a message to Zehut Party voters following their leader Moshe Feiglin’s deal with Netanyahu in which Zehut quit the race.

Gil Hoffman speaks to former Knesset member Einat Wilf about whether her former party Labor can still be saved by a new messiah and whether her former party leader Ehud Barak will have a positive or negative impact on attempts to resuscitate the Israeli Left. Gil explains why the September 17 repeat election will be a lot more interesting than people currently expect and what Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Golden State Warriors and New England Patriots have in common.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s competition in Tuesday’s election, former IDF chief-of-staff Benny Gantz, explains his positions to Gil Hoffman in an interview with The Jerusalem Post broadcast here with permission. In the interview, Gantz vows to win the election and form a government that will not include Netanyahu. Gantz concludes the 12-part Meet The Candidates series on Inside Israel Today in which new candidates from a dozen parties were interviewed.

Gil Hoffman talks about why several recent steps of politicians indicate that they are preparing less for the current election and more for the more exciting race that will take place in the post-Netanyahu era. He then laments that two of Israel’s most historic parties, Labor and the former National Religious Party, could be approaching their demise. Lastly, he speaks about the prospective power of the 250,000 immigrants to Israel from English-speaking countries as a political force and expresses disappointment that their latest candidate decided to start her political career by insulting her predecessors.
