    On this episode of Fault Lines, hosts Garland Nixon and Lee Stranahan discuss the results from yesterday's election in Israel where Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is declaring victory. He will now be tasked with forming a new coalition government which will determine in large part the policies Israel will pursue in the coming months and years.

    Guests:

    Alexander Mercouris — Editor-in-Chief at TheDuran.com | Theresa May and the Rapidly Approaching Brexit Deadline

    Talib Karim - Attorney and Executive Director of STEM4US | How Education & Immigration Policies Impact American Citizens

    Whitney Webb — Staff Writer at Mint Press News | The Trump Administration Designates the Iranian Revolutionary Guard as a "Foreign Terrorist Organization"

    Nicole Roussell — Producer for 'Loud & Clear' | Live from Tel Aviv: Netanyahu Declares Victory in Israeli Elections, Prepares to Form New Coalition Government

    UK Prime Minister Theresa May's deadline to reach a Brexit deal with the European Union is this Friday, and it still remains unclear how this will play out in the coming days. Alexander Mercouris, Editor-in-Chief at TheDuran.com, joins today's show to discuss what may happen before Friday's deadline, how Brexit is viewed by different demographic groups inside the United Kingdom, why the political class fears Brexit, and how Brexit could impact trade and foreign policy for the United Kingdom.

    As technology continues to rapidly advance and impact the US job market, it will become increasingly important for American citizens to develop relevant skills and for education policies to keep pace with these trends. Attorney and STEM education advocate Talib Karim joins Garland and Lee in-studio to talk about strategies for addressing these issues and to discuss how "open border" immigration policies would impact the US economy and wages/opportunities for American workers.

    Earlier this week, the Trump administration moved to declare the Iranian Revolutionary Guard as a "foreign terrorist organization" which can be viewed as another pro-Israel geopolitical decision made by President Trump. Whitney Webb, a Staff Writer at Mint Press News, returns to the program to discuss the administration's justification for this designation and the influence of Mike Pompeo, John Bolton, and Jared Kushner over the foreign policy decision making of the Trump administration.

    For the final segment, Garland and Lee are joined by 'Loud & Clear' Producer Nicole Roussell who has been in Tel Aviv for the past few days to cover the Israeli elections which took place yesterday. On today's episode, Roussell discusses the election results, what she observed on Election Day, and how Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will go about trying to form a new coalition government after declaring victory based on the voting outcome.
