Rank #4: E12 - Who Are You Avi Gabbay The New Leader Of Israeli Labor

Podcast cover
Read more
Today’s episode is about the new leader of the Labor party, Avi Gabbay who’s been stirring a lot of controversy and conversation since he was elected in July. So if you’re interest in the newcomer who is hoping to become Israel’s next prime minister stick around. Besides a basic acquaintance with Gabbay, I hope to leave you with two more takeaways today: An insider view of what he’s trying to do politically, for which I’ve spoken to people on his campaign, and my tempered criticism on unorthodox comments he’s been making on issues such as the settlements, the political place of Arab Israelis, and the Israeli left’s relationship with Judaism.
