Reporters' Roundtable: Bibi Before Congress

In this week’s Forward Reporters’ Roundtable, news editor Larry Cohler-Esses and opinion editor Gal Beckerman sit down with host Josh Nathan-Kazis to discuss Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s May 24’s address before a joint session of Congress. How did Netanyahu’s speech compare to the one made by President Obama days earlier? What are the implications for the upcoming U.N. vote on the declaration of an independent Palestinian state? Our staffers unpack it all.

And in our ongoing feature “The Best Jewish Story That Didn’t Make the Paper” Josh tells us about the Jewish Voice for Peace activist who briefly disrupted the Israeli Prime Minister’s congressional speech.
