After seven weeks of fighting, Israel's war with Hamas in Gaza has reached an open-ended ceasefire. One of the casualties of the war was the relationship between Israel and the United States, its key ally. Washington DC Bureau Chief Michael Wilner weighs in on where the relationship is going, and talks about shifting US interests in the Middle East, from Qatar to Iran.

Then, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's approval ratings have changed more frequently than Lady Gaga's outfits in the past two months. Knesset Reporter Lahav Harkov explains how domestic public opinion and the politics of war are playing out. On a lighter note, she also discusses how some Knesset members got roped into an international viral video trend.
