In the heated debate about guns in America, US President Barack Obama himself has noted that the US has 33 times the number of gun homicides per capita that Israel has.

On this week’s JPost Frontlines Podcast, we talk to Ilan Chaim, who authored the JPost editorial 'Out of Control' discussing what the US can learn from Israel about effective gun laws.

After that, we talk to crime reporter Ben Hartman about the dramatic week-long manhunt that tracked down the New Year’s Day Tel Aviv shooter. 

Also this week, political reporter Gil Hoffman helps us debut a new segment on the absurd things that seem to happen Only in Israel.


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.
