The Islamic State  has been dominating the headlines in recent weeks and on Tuesday night the second video within just two weeks was released of the beheading of a journalist, this time American-Israeli journalist Steven Sotloff. In this week's Frontlines Podcast, The Jerusalem Post's Middle East correspondent Ariel Ben Solomon provides insight into the terror group that is shocking the world with his gruesome acts, and assesses what the Islamic State’s presence in the region could mean for Israel.

This week was also the first week back at school for Israeli children, coming only a few days after Israel and Hamas reached a cease-fire following the 50-day-long Operation Protective Edge, which kept children - particularly those in the South - sheltering from rockets for most of their summer vacation. The Post's Education Report Lidar Gravé-Lazi sheds light on how the summer's events have impacted this school year and what measures are being taken to help children suffering from post-war trauma.


Each week, the Jerusalem Post Frontlines Podcast brings you behind-the-scenes interviews with the Post's top reporters, editors and columnists, as well as special interviews with Israeli experts and politicians to offer insight, commentary and opinion on the biggest stories in Israel.
