Our Voice of the Fortnight is BICOM's Research Associate Samuel Nurding and Director Richard Pater discussing how the new Israeli government is holding up after five weeks in power. Sam and Richard explain how the opposition is acting in new and unprecedented ways, the rivalry emerging between the United Arab List and the opposition-based Joint Arab List, and the potential government-ending obstacles that lay in wait.
