King Herod was a master at using the Roman Empire in order to outmaneuver domestic opposition. But the Romans were no less shrewd at using him. The result was, eventually, the demise of Jewish independence in the land of Israel. Is the Israeli opposition attempting the same kind of move by inviting American intervention in domestic politics? Mike, Gadi and Tablet's Tony Badran discuss Gantz's visit to Washington in light of Tony's brilliant analysis of the parallels and differences between King Herod's time and our own.
