Israelis head to the ballot box –again– on March 2 in hopes that Prime Minister Netanyahu or challenger Benny Gantz’s Blue and White party can form a new coalition government. The backdrop is rife with drama: “Bibi” faces a criminal corruption investigation but was thrown an electoral bone in the form of Donald Trump’s lopsided Middle East Peace Plan. Meanwhile, the Syrian exodus to Turkey and the death of Iran’s General Qasem Soleimani have upended the region. Top Israeli reporter Gil Tamary joins Altamar to break down the political landscape through an independent lens. Gil is the Washington bureau chief for Israel’s Reshet News. He has worked for Israel’s Broadcasting Authority, Israel Public Radio and as anchor and chief editor of “Good Morning Israel”.
