This week, after UN Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon confirmed that Palestine would join the International Criminal Court on April 1st, the US released a statement saying that it would oppose the move. The State Department said that since Palestine isn't a state, it doesn't qualify for membership at the ICC. The Jerusalem Post's legal affairs correspondent Yonah Jeremy Bob will join us today to provide some insight into how much US efforts to thwart the move are likely to impact the process, and what we we can expect if they don't.
Also this week, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu unveiled a plan for a two party political system. Dr Ofer Kenig, a researcher at the Israeli Democracy Institute, will weigh in on how a new political system would change the face of Israeli politics.
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.
