Podcast: Netanyahu and Gantz elections; Sanders and Biden elections

Veteran award winning journalists Ray Hanania of the Arab News newspaper and Ali Younes of Aljazeera English analyze the recent elections in Israel and in the United States.

Israel's 3rd elections in less than a year took place on Monday March 2, 2020 resulting another uncertain outcome with Netanyahu leading in the number of Knesset seats but still shot to the 61 he needs to form a ruling coalition. Benny Gantz's Blue & White Party received the second largest number of Knesset seats, while the Arab Joint List achieved its highest Knesset win in history, 15 total seats, still show tof their 24 seat potential as 20 percent of Israel's population.

In the United States, the Democratic Party rallied around Joe Biden to give him a win over Bernie Sanders in the March 3, 2020 Democratic Primary contests in 14 states. Biden took most of the states with the backing of the Democrats and support from two predecessors who quit, Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar.

Hanania and Younes analyzes both and explore how they are connected.
