Night 1

Israel Trapped Between Isis and Iran

Israel’s neighborhood has become increasingly dangerous, especially with the alliance between Iran and Hezbollah and its proxy in Lebanon. How did the chaos of the Middle East and the world’s alarm over the rise of ISIS lead to a relationship that now poses the most dangerous threat to Israel since its founding? Itai will lead us on a journey with exclusive footage through Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Gaza, to explain the new and perilous dynamics.

Itai Anghel: 

A 3-Night Series

A 3-night series with Itai Anghel, the youngest-ever recipient of the Sokolov Prize, Israel’s Pulitzer Prize.

Itai Anghel is a reporter’s reporter who refuses to play it safe in his quest to understand the world he brings to his viewers on the program Uvda, the Israeli equivalent of 60 Minutes. 

Since the world he wants his viewers to comprehend includes many of the most dangerous places on earth, he’s spent 30 years hopping from hot spot to hot spot, from Afghanistan to Rwanda, Gaza, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and the Islamic State (where he was the only Israeli journalist to report from inside). An intrepid journalist who dares to venture to places  where the line between good guys and bad guys — even between victims and war criminals — isn’t easily drawn, he works from the belief that talking to all sides of a conflict is a necessity, not a strategy.

Itai joins us for three stand-alone discussions to speak about — and present exclusive video footage of — Kurdish women guerrillas in Syria looking out for Israel; an Egyptian who dreams of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.; the people who have vowed to burn all those hopes . . . and what we should know about the current situation in the Middle East.
