The horrific events unfolding in Israel have sent shockwaves around the world. As the death toll mounts from Hamas’ deadly attacks and Israel’s retaliatory strikes on Gaza, how will the ensuing conflict alter the power balance of the Middle East and its alliances?
In this week’s episode of Power Play, host Anne McElvoy talks to Ron Prosor, Israel’s ambassador to Germany. Prosor has also served as the Israeli Ambassador to the UK and Permanent Representative to the UN.
She also talks to Fleur Hassan-Nahoum, deputy mayor of Jerusalem, to get insight into the mood in a city at the heart of tensions in the Middle East.
Anne is joined by POLITICO’s “Power Panel” to reflect on the consequences of this week’s events for the US, Europe and the wider world. Lara Seligman, POLITICO’s defense reporter in Washington DC and Sam Wilkin, policy editor in POLITICO’s Brussels newsroom.
