    Episode 20: Why This Israeli Election is Different

    Episode 20: Why This Israeli Election is Different

    One week from today, Israelis will head to the polls for the fifth time in under four years—a figure that is both astonishing and troublesome. Undoubtedly, the outcome of this one will have vast consequences for the region.

    To understand the key developments, historical context, and what our partners at Darkenu are doing to promote democracy, we've got a special election episode of the EveryDay Voices Podcast.

    Our featured guest is Michael Koplow, the chief policy officer at Israel Policy Forum. Michael dives into the party alliances, how the conflict factors in, and how to best consume election news once the votes are tallied.

    You’ll also hear from Danielle Leumi, a campaigner at Darkenu, who shares how their new Democrator app is increasing voter turnout.

    Episode 19: The Political Divide You Need to Hear More About

    Episode 19: The Political Divide You Need to Hear More About

    Did you know Palestine has not held presidential elections since 2005? While an array of factors have contributed to that drought, one is the national divide between its two largest parties, Fatah and Hamas.

    With tensions rising across the region, and with violence spiking in the West Bank, now is a crucial time to examine this divide and its vast impact.

    On a new episode of EveryDay Voices, we break down this issue with Dr. Mkhaimar Abusada: associate professor and chairman of the department of political science at Al-Azhar University in Gaza. Alongside our hosts Ezzeldeen Masri and Andrew Hirsh, Dr. Abusada shares key insights from the ground, along with historical context and what the future holds.

    Episode 16: Rise in Settler Violence—Why Now, and What Can Be Done?

    Episode 16: Rise in Settler Violence—Why Now, and What Can Be Done?

    West Bank settlements remain a significant roadblock to peace in Israel and Palestine—perhaps the largest. Exacerbating the issue is settler violence against Palestinians, which has been on the rise in recent months.

    To help us understand this pressing and complex issue, and the historical context surrounding it, we've brought Ori Nir onto the show. Ori is the VP for Public Affairs at Americans for Peace Now; his decades of experience covering the conflict—and the West Bank, specifically—make him a crucial voice.
