After four years of political turmoil, Israel's far-right Zionist agitators have emerged victorious, seeking to expel Palestinians, implement Jewish loyalty laws and tear up the peace process once and for all.
With the help of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Itamar Ben Gvir and Bezalel Smotrich have dominated Israeli politics and are set to take over the most powerful positions in government, despite the alarm of the international community.
Daniel Levy is a former Israeli peace negotiator who was instrumental in the 1993 Oslo Accords. He now heads the US Middle East Project and advocates for Palestinian rights at the United Nations and other international bodies.
In this episode of The Big Picture, Levy breaks down the rise of Israel's far-right and what their electoral victory says about Israeli society today.
