Since the recording of this podcast with Yossi Mekelberg, the Israelis and Palestinians are at it again with Hamas launching rockets at Tel Aviv and towards Israel's Dimona nuclear facility. While the Hamas rocket barrage has yet again failed to reach its targets, this Hamas attack has shown increasing capability and improvements in the organisation’s ability to strike deeper into Israel than before. Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system, while having destroyed most incoming Hamas rockets, was not foolproof in its defence leading to some questioning whether Iron Dome has reached its technological limits.

Professor Yossi Mekelberg joins John and David to discuss the nitty-gritty of Israel's current tensions, putting into perspective recent and ancient history, as well as predicting some of the actions Benjamin Netanyahu could or should take next.
