    Israeli youth fight for their future

    Israeli youth fight for their future

    Kyra Jasper talks with Stanford alumna and Rhodes Scholar Anat Peled on the ongoing protests in Israel, including the reasons both the younger and older generations are taking to the streets, how these protests differ from past protests, and what these protests foreshadow about Israel's future.

    Show Notes
    Note: this podcast was recorded on December 29, 2020. Since the time of the recording, there have been several developments related to Prime Minister Netanyahu’s trial; most pertinently, his trial for corruption charges was delayed until February 8 because of the imposition of a third national COVID-19 lockdown, after an announcement in early January that the trial would be suspended “indefinitely.” More information can be found here: https://www.jpost.com/breaking-news/pm-netanyahus-hearing-rescheduled-for-february-8-655006, https://www.timesofisrael.com/court-delays-netanyahus-2nd-appearance-in-court-for-his-trial-citing-lockdown/, and https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/.premium-court-postpones-next-hearing-in-netanyahu-s-corruption-trial-citing-covid-lockdown-1.9434724
