And may have been, if not afraid, then hesitant to ask. Because, I gotta say (this is Shirley) as an American overly-used to our for-all-intents-and-purposes two-party structure, the workings of the Israeli electoral system can seem pretty complex.
That’s why we were so glad to get a great group of smart and articulate people together to talk about it. Check out excerpts from the conversation on Vimeo, which featured:
- Moderator, Jewish Daily Forward DC Bureau Chief Nathan Guttman
- Jeremy Ben-Ami , Founder and President of J Street
- Lucy Kurtzer-Ellenbogen, Senior Program Officer in the Center for Conflict Management, United States Institute of Peace
- Dan Raviv, CBS Radio, author of Spies Against Armageddon: Inside Israel’s Secret Wars.
Bonus round: pick out Shirley and Ari’s laughs on tape.
And p.s. While Yair Lapid isn’t quite a dead ringer for George Clooney, I can totally see the comparison.
