The panel discusses US Democrats announcing opposition to the Iran deal, peacekeepers in Sinai, hunger strikes and the Ashley Madison embarrassment.
US Senator Robert Menendez, a prominent democrat, came out in opposition to the Iran deal – one of the rare times he has opposed President Obama. Alan Dershowitz called the US administration “inept negotiators,” saying he would not allow them to negotiate a one month lease for him. The panel discusses what if any impact this might have on the final vote.
The AP is reporting the US administration is considering pulling its “peacekeeping” force out of Sinai. What is the purpose of peacekeepers if they leave when times get tough, the panel asks.
As Israel’s administrative detainee continues his hunger strike into his 64th day, it is reported that Israel has agreed to set him free under certain conditions. The panel debates the issues of administrative detainees, hunger striking and releasing dangerous prisoners.
Finally, the recent hacking of the Ashley Madison server, revealing members who signed up to cheat on their spouses, revealed the official Knesset email address of an Arab MK as one of its members. The panel discusses the reliability of the story, and whether it has any relevance.
