On Thursday, April 27th I sat down with Amir Tibon, one of Israel’s leading journalists, to discuss the ongoing struggle for democracy in Israel. It was a highly informative discussion about the events unfolding there. Hope you will watch or listen.
Amir Tibon is a senior editor for Haaretz, Israel's newspaper of record. From 2017-2020 he was Haaretz's Washington correspondent, responsible for coverage of the Trump administration, Congress and the U.S. Jewish community. Prior to that, he was diplomatic correspondent for Walla News, a leading Israeli news website. His writing on Israel and the Middle East has appeared in The Atlantic, Foreign Affairs, The New Yorker and other leading U.S. publications. His first book, a biography of Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, came out in 2017. Amir lives in a small community on Israel's border with Gaza together with his wife and two daughters.
