Yediot Achronot’s top political pundit, Nahum Barnea, won the Israel
Prize. The Israel Prize Committee announced Tuesday that it would honor
Barnea for his career in journalism at this year’s Independence Day
“Barnea always makes sure to be close to the action, in places
of social turmoil, in times of war or terror attacks, and even when his
presence there puts his life at risk,” the Israel Prize judges wrote.
Barnea, 63, is widely considered one of Israel’s most influential journalists.
