In this episode of RANE's Essential Geopolitics podcast, we discuss the recent controversy surrounding Itamar Ben Gvir, Israel's new national security minister and the leader of the far-right Otzma Yehudit party. Ben Gvir's Jan. 3 visit to the Temple Mount/Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem garnered international condemnation, as disputes over the sensitive holy site have sparked Israeli-Palestinian violence in the past, but RANE's senior Middle East and North Africa analyst Ryan Bohl tells us that the visit was not quite as destabilizing as it might have been.
