Israel just held its fourth election in two years last week and the results appear to be headed toward another stalemate. Author and Middle East expert Avi Lipkin (avilipkin.net) is back with us from Israel to give us the lowdown on how Israel's elections work and where this iteration could be headed. He also analyzes global geopolitics, not only regarding the United States, but also China, Iran, and Russia, and closer to the Middle East – Israel and Hezbollah-controlled Lebanon. He and John discuss the radical changes in policies when U.S. administrations change – something John calls the zig zag wars.
