"Reflections of a former Jerusalem correspondent" will focus on the latest events happening in the region, and the vast implications for the West, including the changing alliances in the Middle East, Israel's elections (take two), and the viability of "economic peace" with the Palestinians.

Etgar Lefkovits was Jerusalem correspondent at the Jerusalem Post, and also worked at the Jerusalem bureau of the New York Times. He was subsequently in Washington D.C. as Israel and Middle East analyst to the US Congress, and then worked as Foreign Affairs Director to Israel's Minister for Social Equality.
