This week, an EU court ruled that Hamas should be taken off the list of terrorist organizations, while the EU parliament mulled recognizing a Palestinian state. The Jerusalem Post's Diplomatic reporter Herb Keinon will tell us about the political fall-out. Then, the once-mighty ultra-Orthodox Shas party may be headed for electoral defeat after its former chairman Eli Yishai split off. Religious Affairs reporter Jeremy Sharon explains what it might mean in the upcoming election, and discusses a recent wave of haredi electoral feminism.
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.
