Special Departures Podcast on the Crisis in Israel featuring Ron Robin

In light of the escalating violence taking place in Israel this week, we reached out to our friend and colleague Ron Robin, a scholar, author, and the President of Haifa University.

In this brief interview, which was interrupted at several points by air raid sirens nearby Prof. Robin’s location, we discuss the origins of the political violence we are seeing, the end of Benjamin Netanyahu’s political career, and the potential impact of the Abraham Accords and other diplomatic forces – including Russia – which may provide for the resolution and management of tensions in Gaza.
