Scott interviews Yossi Gurvitz about the Knesset election in Israel, where Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stands to lose his position to Benny Gantz, the leader of Israel’s Blue and White party. Gurvitz explains some of the reasons Netanyahu’s tenure has been so bad for Israel, Palestinians, and the world, but says that the alternatives aren’t necessarily much better. At the moment the election is still too close to call.
