Fresh update on "israeli" discussed on BBC Newshour
"Family of a Palestinian man left seriously wounded after Israeli police stormed a cemetery have accused officers of using unjustifiable force Israeli police say they were acting to stop riots and protect officers It comes after security forces sparked global condemnation when they beat mourners at the funeral of the Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu akle last week Our Middle East correspondent Tom Bateman reports Monday night and the air felt volatile in east Jerusalem This was the funeral of Walid as Sharif a 21 year old whose death had enraged Palestinians He suffered fatal injuries during confrontations with Israeli forces near Al-Aqsa Mosque in April Witnesses say he was hit by a rubber coated bullet fired by police but officers say he fell and hit his head throwing stones And now another family member is in hospital Walid's older cousin nada I meet his relatives at the bedside Nada is unconscious with a fractured skull They tell me he was hit in the eye with a rubber coated bullet fired by Israeli forces during Walid's funeral Before.
Al Jazeera Reporter Killed During Israeli Raid in West Bank
"Turn to that. Because I've tried to figure out who shot whom and the Palestinians are not the Palestinian authority is not cooperating with the idea. What is your assessment of the situation, doctor Oren? So last night I was talking to an Israeli journalist and I said, just watch your authority is going to say that they found a 5.56 bullet in the journalists. Now the Israeli forces use 5.56 palisades usually use 7.62 at the colossal cost bullet, but they also do have American a fours and M 16s. And I also think that the Palestinians wouldn't cooperate with an Israeli offer for a joint investigation. And they rejected it, even though the Biden administration asked Allison is to do it. They quickly closed the case. I heard this morning that they've already buried the body. And the passwords are making a calculation. Yeah, maybe the Biden administration will get a little aggravated, but the international community is going to come down hard on Israel. I was looking at the international press coverage, NBC had an item on it where they did an interview and the Israeli. They only talked about the greeting Palestinians and the implication is that we are guilty before we're judged. And
Fresh update on "israeli" discussed on Between The Lines
"The outcome was that Hezbollah's sense of invincibility was punctured. Their aura was punctured in these clashes because they lost a couple of hardcore fighters. And I think overall across the country, there was a sense of satisfaction that that had happened in that way and that they've got their nose bloodied and that it had become clear that they were not almighty and that somebody could take them down. But nobody absolutely nobody wants to see Civil War breakout. No one in this new parliament is going to demand a forceful solution to the arms of Hezbollah. That's not the way to go forward. Kim, there's one neighbor we haven't spoken about. What about the ongoing relationship and attitudes to Israel within Lebanon? Will this new parliament change anything? No. That's there's no relationship with Israel. Lebanon and Israel are officially still in a state of war. Dealing with Israel, traveling there, buying Israeli products are sanctioned by the law in Lebanon as treason. And there is no one in Lebanon at the moment who has any time to or any bandwidth to really discuss the bigger issue of Arab Israeli, the Arab Israeli conflict outside of the context of what is Hezbollah in Lebanon. What does it stand for and why is it still keeping its weapons arsenal? And has Banda is a problem on its own in the sense that it is now a regional paramilitary force with foot soldiers in Syria and Iraq and Yemen. And the discussion about Hezbollah is no longer so much for Lebanon discussion about the state of war or not with Israel, but a discussion of why does militia have the right to declare to decide unilaterally when to go to war without outside countries, whether it's Israel or whether it is sending troops and fighters to Syria. This was a unilateral decision that Hezbollah took in 2013, which really impacted Lebanon and which is something that will probably brought would probably be brought to the fore in the parliament to discuss Lebanon's defense strategy and how the arms of Hezbollah fit in or not. Kim as this parliament is convened and we know it could be a lengthy process as you were describing earlier, but what will you be looking for in terms of indications of how healthy or robust new political arrangements might be or otherwise? We're first looking at the election of a new Speaker of the House who unfortunately will be the same old Speaker of the House. Same one who's been around since 1992 for various reasons that have to do with the fact that the Speaker of the House is always from the Shia community that there are no independent shias who have been elected because of the stranglehold that the parties Hezbollah and Amal have on the community. So it will have to be somebody from that from one of those two parties and they will only put forward the same man who's been at this in this position for the last three decades. That's very. After that, we'll have to wait for the cabinet formation. And after that, does the presidential election in October?.
A Brief History on Israel's Day of Remembrance
"The day of remembrance, I always find very moving, even though I'm not Jewish. Tell us about it. It's really the only unique Israeli holiday. Israel Independence Day is celebrated by Jewish communities around the world, but no one really marks Memorial Day the way we remark Memorial Day. The entire country goes into mourning for 24 hours. A siren sounds at 8 o'clock at night and then the next morning at 11 o'clock, the entire country stands still, if you're on the highway cars go up to the side, people stand at attention. We all visit military cemeteries. I was in the military cemetery yesterday. It's deeply moving because we have all lost friends and relatives initial wars. Victims of terror, and we pay homage. We go into this deep morning in the extraordinary thing is that at 8 o'clock at night, the next night, we go immediately into ecstatic celebration of Israel's independence. We go through this one from radical morning to radical to ecstatic celebration, I don't know anything like it.
Iranian Plot to Assassinate US General Foiled by Mossad
"From the post millennial side a great site Iranian plot to assassinate U.S. general in Berlin foiled by Israel's Mossad The Mossad had been operating in Iran at the time when they captured an interrogated mansoor rasuli Who admitting during an interrogation that he had been ordered to assassinate a U.S. general in Berlin A journalist in France and a worker at the Israeli consulate in Istanbul Israeli officials pointed out that the threat posed by the Islamic revolutionary guard corps applies not only to Israel but to other nations around the globe The officials also noted that this plot is part of a larger target list which includes recently foiled plots in both Kenya and Columbia Rosalie who admitted that he was ordered to establish a terror cell during drug cartels to assassinate his targets According to the Israeli defense forces the plot was organized by a member of unit 8 40 A secret operations unit that organizes infrastructure for terror groups within Western countries The Iranian government was reportedly willing to pay over $1 million for the assassination of these targets The operative who was part of Iran's quds force was reportedly paid a 150,000 to quote prepare for the assassinations According to reports from the U.S. UK and turkey Iran has been using international crime groups to carry out its agenda in countries around the world These plots include the hiring of zen dashi cartel to abduct or assassinate Iranian defectors in turkey Which has been ongoing since 2015 I wonder who the general is But it's my understanding that they had a price on Pompeo's head

Dr. Mehmet Oz: We Cannot Abandon Our Israeli Allies
"Where do you stand let's talk about the Middle East the State of Israel the Iranians want to get nuclear weapons and it appears the Biden administration is going to help them get nuclear weapons What are your thoughts about that I've been outspoken about this I went to Israel in 2013 strongly endorsing the beauty of this democracy representing everything that we value in America in the Middle East My goodness they're growing grapes in the sand And these folks have been able to figure out how to survive and thrive in an environment that's not always so hospitable We can not abandon our allies And when we see the weak response of the Biden administration to beg the Russians to negotiate with the Iranians to get their poor quality crude and sell down the river our Israeli allies it makes me sick because the ratings have already told us what they're going to do We don't have to guess just like Putin told us what he's going to do The Iranians wanted to destroy Israel And what does the rest of the world think When a country that's been a staunch supporter of ours and who we have always been loyal to Israel is abandoned because you want a couple extra barrels of oil It's not what America represents We are brave country That's not what great people do

Breaking Down the Myth of Systemic Racism
"The Israeli Arab is the freest Arab in the Middle East. Which is why they continue to live there. It's like, why do blacks, why did 3 million blacks move to the United States if it systemically racist? The answer is, they're not stupid. It's the best place in the world for a black person to live. The best place in the world for most Arabs to live is Israel. The Jewish state in the Middle East. That's why they stay there. And that's why so many would like to move there. So I think that the movement of 3 million blacks to the United States from Africa and the Caribbean puts the lie to the systemically racist charge and the fact that so many Arabs don't want to leave his reel in so many Arabs want to move to Israel gives the lie to the apartheid charge.
What Did Dennis Prager Do During the Height of the Cold War?
"Tell us what you did as a young man during the height of the Cold War. I was in my very early 20s. I was a graduate student at Columbia University at the school of international affairs. And it had a number of affiliated Institutes, Russian institute, Middle East institute, East Asian institute, African institute. I was a member of Middle East and Russian. I studied Russian and on a visit to Israel, my third year in college, so it's even before that. I was asked by someone I knew in Israel and Israeli friend. Would I be prepared to be sent into the Soviet Union to smuggle in religious items to Jews? Because they were not allowed to have them by Christians were not. And to bring out smuggle out the names of Jews who wanted to leave. And they thought that I would be the ideal candidate being an American, so I'd be somewhat protected by my passport. And knowing Hebrew and Russian, so I was sent for a month, and it was obviously a tense month. That was a followed most of the time. Where did you travel in Russia in the Soviet Union? Moscow, what was called then Leningrad, which is back again to St. Petersburg, and then Baku Azerbaijan. The first westerner to visit the synagogue there in decades. It was literally literally underground. And the stories I'm not going to get into now, but obviously there were life form what the effect that it had to see a young western Jew. Who knew the religion and who could, I was always called up to do something to show my knowledge of the liturgy, because they had been told that the Jews of the Soviet Union were told that Judaism is dead. And they shouldn't even bother thinking about it because Jews outside of Russia are outside of the Soviet Union, no longer practice it and have assimilated.

"It is shocking to me That this administration is so out of it And what about Congress's approval Cut 6 go Iran nuclear agreement review act says the Congress is required to review any new agreement This is obviously not the same agreement that Obama worked on in 2015 Does President Biden believe that this treaty needs the advice we can send Congress and if so does he believe he has the votes to lawfully affirm it Well if and when we have a deal and we don't have a deal at this point otherwise you would all know We would care for you That's not what she's asking yet We don't need your starkey dumbass comments That's not what she said She said what's the process here Go ahead Some circumstances of any U.S. return to the JCPOA to determine the legal implications including those under the Iran nuclear review act of 2015 And we're committed to ensuring the requirements are satisfied so certainly we would abide by that But we have been keeping a member's very updated We've been briefing No you haven't been keeping members very updated Most of Congress has no idea what you're doing Most of the Arab states have no idea what you're doing The Israelis have mostly no idea what you're doing And we the American people we have no idea what the hell you're doing

Perhaps also say that you were talking about the kind of regulations or restrictions that can be put on this one of the restrictions that pegasus three has built into it is something called geofencing so there are certain countries that if a phone that has infected with pegasus lands in pegasus commit suicide so for example you have a way to prevent this from working in certain countries because the american intel establishment believes that israel is using this as a back door. I completely agree with you. I don't think they are per se. And i don't think they're using to track israeli citizens because they have other ways to do that if they want.

"Brings you stories that cross borders ideologies and break down what it means to be a global citizen world affairs making sense of a changing world one story at a time search for world affairs. That's one word on apple spotify or wherever you get your podcasts. One was the countries in which there's been a massive political fallout from from all of these exposures was india and s that you've been working closely with with writers in india including sweaty chatto verdi. Who was one of the journalists allegedly targeted. She wrote an op-ed in which she said that israel should shut down. Nso and similar companies. Is it fair to say that the pegasus revelations have shaken the political establishment in india. Well i think that there has been an enormous outcry there. I mean you can't really separate it from the fact that you know it feeds into existing political tension between the modi government and the opposition and so therefore the opposite. It's in the opposition's interested to jump on an issue that makes the modi government bad not that it takes that much to make the government look that biden in terms of repression of free expression in india So really what has happened. Is that civil society. Particularly journalists are incredibly upset because they already filled are under so much pressure and they already feel that the indian state is already adopting various ways of surveying them. And they're kind of side. You know more than just sad depressed. The idea that india's best new friend is helping the government. Enforce that kind of surveillance very very intrusive surveillance mean many times. Engines have said to me. We're full of becoming like hungary or turkey in terms of our ability to investigate and report. And it's exactly these kinds of tools that offer a government that is already has the kind of direction to clamp down on them at our critics. They're pointing to the the cozy relationship. That prime minister modi has or had with with netanyahu. Well it's the certainly you israel in a backup and do something because you know as you'll see said they're all ways to make the kind of licensing process more sensitive to these other kinds of important values on the other hand. India is didn't become best is because of pegasus. This is the big geopolitical shifts. That are happening in the world of the last he is and and you know that's not a relationship that might be a wobble but that's you know there are much much bigger things that That a leading to the strategic closeness when moore was here i remember the first thing they took him to see was a flower nursery. And i think that's very indicative of how big these deals are with indian. How the moving. Closer between between modiin israel isn't it is also a political affinity like the is very in that sense for me. Just you know like working with the puertas in india now. I'm just literally blown away by like how. What a fighting kind of democratic energy they have and you know people from like hunger and even from israel. We've kind of gone used to our form of kind of populism and there's something just so there's just like almost like burning democratic spirit about india media super fighting on television there this week and and you know they're so up in arms just like how is a private company allowed to spy on us and i think that understanding that might be their actual government who paid for. This is something that they're just now starting to fully understand as part of this deal for the flowers and the agricultural exports and so on and so forth and this does feed into a general sense of you know most of the pieces that i've i've read concerning this have spoken about the threat to democracy that this this software poses and this you know from from from startup nation we're now exporting anti-democratic tools to be used by as he say the repressive regimes at i mean. Remember that can't be naive. The whole arms into military industrial complex. Wherever you want to do it you know. It's not nice place and you know it's the major part of israel's exports and makes good Diplomatic and geopolitical sense. In many ways there are ways to put a fence around how it operates. Medieval india in read is is that it's a dirty game and there's a price for it and usually it doesn't come out in the open quite like this. Well we should. We should look at the beginning at the beginning.

"Over. Let's show and i think by now. Everyone knows pretty much. What pegasus is all male. I search of hearts archive and found articles about pegasus from afar backers. Two thousand fourteen. Tell us though about forbidden stories and the and the massive list of phone numbers they found. Okay so the origin are kind of nexus of this project is an international nonprofit based in paris called forbidden stories. And i think that as kind of the world becomes a sense more globalized. We call an rarely company but they're registered and a whole bunch of different countries and they have front office so the kind of investigations we we need to do into them are also needs to be international in a sense so forbidden stories received a league. I don't know and i can't doodo. How a leak of fifty thousand phone numbers that were at least theoretically selected as targets by clients of nso four their pegasus or more accurately pegasus. Three spyware software. Which can make your phone do anything they want from turning on the camera to record you. Send you messages. And so on and so forth. So forbidding stories got this massive leak then took it to amnesty international security lab which do kind of good digital forensics on like the kind of digital forensics that israel exports and they started examining some of these phones and found. Some of the phones used the had that had these numbers on them and found some indications of pegasus. Not all of them. It's it's a very big number. We haven't confirmed anything. We haven't confirmed the absolute cheer number of fifty thousand but there was a a large percentage of phones examined and found under a hundred yet. But these were actually targeted and what they then did is select seventy newspapers across the world and journalists in every country started calling the phone numbers. On this database israel was in in the market and we're looped into this project without any phone numbers to call because there was no israeli phone numbers on this database. My assumption is that the israeli apparatus has other ways to listen in on us and therefore does not need an services but generally will we did is kind of more look into the diplomatic side or the more political side of israel's ties with the cyber firm. Nso what kind of names appeared on this list. So it's in a sense again. Very important strays list of potential target. So these are people that nso clients may have or wanted to kind of spy on not that they necessarily spied on their. The surveys succeeded among the names. We know it's insane what we're talking about at least one hundred eighty journalists a spread across the world. The bigger names selected target. French president on mccoy on Pakistani president. you won't kind a little gandhi. The head of the congress party in india his holiness the dalai lama was also in theory selected the princesses of the dubai ruler ritz latifah emphasis higher. So just you know just to get kind of tasting of the targets. Who is who. We should point out of course that. Nso denies these numbers are potential targets. Denies knowledge of these are potential targets. They deny any connection to the list at all. They say this list might as well be arbitrary. Selection of numbers picked out at random from the phone book and we can go into detail about why they say that but it has to do with the way these kind of spyware works so these technologies you have to. I find the phone And then you can infect it and what they claim this is maybe just a wishlist of possible numbers. That you know. We're we're kind of called up to be located. Not not even necessarily by their software so this is a question of of of an israeli or rarely based company selling a technology that can be misused by regimes by governments. All open non government organizations. That you'll see. What kind of restrictions does israel place on the sale of such technology to foreign countries. First of all the technology Us by and is is is sold not to government but organizations security services and police forces. It's a contract between any so and the various bodies But they need to be approved by both the receiving government and as really government really government through the ministry of defence is in charge of licensing any export of israeli security equipment beat rockets missiles airplanes submarines tanks but also cyber offensive tools. Which are a weapon. Pegasus is a weapon. It's not different from iraq which you or a missile you sell to us. Rb john salt both pegos and missiles and drones to azerbaijan's so there are restrictions. An israeli company cannot sell. It's products without bill the approval of the israeli minister of defense each each deal each organization. The approved not just a blanket approval knowlton hall. It's pro exactly actually. You need three layers of approval when you declare that you enter negotiations when you conclude the negotiations and then when you sell when the actual selling the actual deal is taking place. The problem is they. The minister of defense is rushing to approve deals. Left and right without any breaks they don't put breaks to And that's the problem. There is the name of the game by these really government is sell. Sell sell as much as you can to to anybody. Almost anybody israel would not sell weapons to its enemies. Iran above all syria tower. We know qatar refused to sell the gulf states. That's about pegasus but they did sell to other to other stuff. I guess he's not the only game in town so they are ready to sell to do this. Regimes to dictators. There is nothing new in that it began in the sixties seventies eighties when we sold weapons to central american dictatorial regimes which violated human rights. Which were involved in civil wars which people were killed so in that sense there is no different and once the deal has been approved. Is there any israeli government oversight on how the software is used. It is based on the goodwill of the customer. You sign a contract You approved the deal then. Ns all signs the contract with police force or the security services of beat miracle whatever in the contract. There are a stipulation there are restrictions there clauses but practically no one. He's supervising it and the the software is supposed to be used And terrorists and criminals right. But we've seen according to this league again. Allegedly that that journalists and civil activists have been targeted. Yes and no wonder you know when you when you go to bed in a dubious Dirty hotel don't be surprised that you wake up the next morning with fleas. So if you sell to countries like saudi arabia united arab emirates like rb. John even to orban's ongeri a regimes which are known for harassing oppressing Violating human rights. So they use it or misuse it. And there's really government is washing. Its ends it's not us. Maybe it's legal. In these countries right maybe some of these countries their definition of who is a terrorist and who is can be suspected of. These crimes doesn't fit our definition as a western democracy and therefore we know how easily local laws can be manipulated in there for something so problematic about this line of argumentation that we only sell to kind of law enforcement agencies as law enforcement agencies. Can't do wrong colleague. Eve wrote this week. About the correlation between the list of countries with which inge israel enjoyed improved diplomatic relations under benjamin netanyahu and the list of countries in which journalists were allegedly targeted through an esso's technology. And we've mentioned saudi arabia hungary as jan the united arab emirates also rwanda Hiroko india mexico was be acting as a traveling salesman for nfl. Here been traveling as a selling agent for these really armaments not only pegasus but he linked. He made the links between the regions which he or the prime minister's leader whom he supported and advancing the cells of israeli military products and for him. It was a tool for diplomacy without restrictions. He was ready to have deals with saudi arabia with all that they would have diplomatic relations with israel. Unfortunately they refuse. But with the united arab emirates it help to enhance the relations between the united arab emirates. Daybreak mccord's and barade- and israel was it presumably. It was symbiotic in the one helped the other and the other help. The sale of nso technology.

"And here it is. Hey let me start with a question about haaretz itself. You know you guys aren't israeli newspaper. You have an english language version and of course the podcast is an english. But who is your audience for the podcast. So obviously it. The north american and english speaking world is is is our primary audience That's reflected in our listening statistics as well more than fifty percent north america. The united kingdom australia and so on. But you know. I go down the list of countries where we have single listeners and It it it sounds like the bottom end of the un list of In others does countries that you might not have heard Which is it's so gratifying to know that people that are interested in the kinds of stories that we have to tell. And then you know something that. I'm always curious about with haaretz. It is the only leftwing newspaper in israel I think of it is the israeli version of the guardian. And of course that's high. I mean you know. I used to say that that's the newspaper. We would like to be when we grow up half the age and if we were half as influential and prestigious as the god i would be very happy so that seems to be part of the because of course in the last twenty years. The number of israelis who identify as being on the left has decreased markedly. Maybe dramatically and i'm wondering how that has affected the newspaper generally well in terms of our place in the israeli media spectrum. It it's been as israel has moved further to the right. It's moved us obviously further to the left And some of the The the views that would once be considered beyond the pale in haaretz even in haaretz A now echoed almost daily Someone get on levy. Who for years was the most outspoken writer. In haret's now almost seems tame compared to some of the views that are being expressed allow pages in terms solve the working atmosphere. I you know some of our reporters of being assaulted. It hasn't helped with montenegro when netanyahu as prime minister his wholesale adoption of the populace enemies if people routine He wants was was hot mic saying that. Israel's greatest enemies the new york times and haaretz. So i i think that says quite a lot about the the atmosphere in which we work but on the other side it remains. The paper of rac audit remains the newspaper that everybody has to read Not only for the news. If i probably not mainly for the news but but for the opinion on the analysis that goes along with it in our prime minister was photographed in the knesset.

We've never seen so much attention. Given to calcium politics in the israeli media before and manitoba's really central to that and he's definitely been enjoying that no question about it. He's awesome definitely given up on any attempts to advance running policy towards the palestinians territories He doesn't care about that. He doesn't say anything about that. And he will not frisk this coalition for palestinians. There is over one thing to say to his advantage to a certain degree. I don't think it's only about himself. He did go into this coalition with very high demand for the people that he represents. Mostly a bedouins. Who live in the south of israeli mega of people who live in unrecognized images who face a house demolitions on a very regular basis who don't have basic infrastructure So basically going into the government in exchange for recognition of some of these villages and funds. That will be directed to the communities. That voted for him.

"And what the difference is wearing. I came up with ten differences. And i found it very instructional because i handed that list over to an iraqi friend of mine and overnight she added twenty two differences So clearly there you know the this doesn't hold water to make a comparison to What the white europeans did to native americans For many reasons why. It's over five hundred years old and the israeli Genocide of palestinian people is Is only You know. I mean when i was born there was no israel and so So the time factor is very huge. Here there were no set laws and international courts. That said you couldn't acquire land by force The americans came over at least respected the native americans to you know name areas for them name roads for them name. You know A stadiums in and and maybe might be demeaning to have mascots but in israel every effort is made to completely wipe out of all the palestinian lives and in their culture completely replacing a towns and streets with You know used to have arabic sounding names with Isreaeli name so there are thirty a at least on my list. Now there's thirty two differences between What happened in america. Five hundred years ago. And what happened in palestine seventy years ago so i think i needed to say that and i would also offer because we hear from benjamin netanyahu The that he demands the palestinians accept israel's right to exist as a jewish state. And i believe has no right to exist as a jewish state. The same way i would say that the united states does not have a right to exist as white state which we don't claim but israel claims very clearly in their nation state law that they passed in twenty eighteen. I'd want hardly come conversation. But if he knows what to comment on just said that's that's fine. Yeah no. I appreciate the the feedback on mr man. Did you have any comments on what he was bringing up. Yeah thanks for sharing your thoughts. I think this some valuable insight comparing like the the differences between the native americans than what. What's going on in israel i think the key takeaway that i had from there of course the time issue that blake that sac brought up..

"We have totally been himself. We be here. The bit of neftali bennett. We probably should We should we should probably hear him polly just because it's interesting about what he says about himself and how he sees himself. He's aware that he's known as the high tech guy but he wants to sort of say he's almost yes the business to set israel straight but almost moldy that. I'm an entrepreneur in leader and what israel needs. Today is not more dirty tricks. We've had enough of that. I'm focused on one thing. Getting israel out of this chaos israel is not managed the there's no competent management of this country. If it were a the seal would be fired. And it's time to fire the ceo and bring in a new ceo a new leader. Say thank you to netanyahu. Which i do appreciate his contribution. He's not going to be able to unite the country. He's not gonna be able. He doesn't have the ability. These days to reinvigorate israel. And that's what we need this before the election. By the way in neftali bennett is like the perfect embodiment of be careful. What you wish for he wants to be. He always wanted to be the first religious prime minister of israel. He didn't want it this way. He wanted to be the head of a right-wing government and he's going to have to decide if he wants to seize the opportunity now with the risk of upsetting his base or waiting for a better opportunity. But i'm jumping massively my mind because the big question to me is if they managed to put this together. What are the agree. On the morning after you know coalition includes merits on the on the on the left With a friend the islamists dentist mansour abbas on the other end how how does this coalition and then neftali bennett.

Kind of descends on the country in the days after one of those You know the people who've seen watched the crown just pigments also told my head. The epa van disaster nine hundred sixty s in wales where a village just fell under the coal. That was the basis slagging felon the town suffocated the people there and that still remembered decades and decades on especially when young people when children are involved. He's going to be. That kind of thing is really history. I'm sure it will be. I mean you mentioned just the the terrible tragedy.

"A lot of countries comparing their own vaccine rollouts. With israel's israel has become the world leader in demonstrating how this and i hope is going to work how how countries are going to get out of the horrible situation. They find themselves. So there's a lot of a lot of publicity behind it and some people say you know maybe israel shouldn't shouldn't have jumped up and down to made such a big fuss about it. But i think we can be very rightly proud of the job done here rolling out the vaccines without getting into the whole the whole arguments as to how we ended up in the situation first place. That's possibly political one is what does health one. But in the meantime we've seen non-governmental the palestinians themselves all crying out in the media and elsewhere that israel should have provided vaccines at the same time for the palestinians in gaza on the west bank. Now there are number of arguments going on here one thing. I want to dispel first first of all this argument that the israeli covid vaccine program is somehow racist. Let's let's deal with that. I think this is absolutely appalling. This charge the distribution plan in israel does not discriminate the vaccines available to all israelis regardless of their race or ethnicity arab israelis are of course absolutely entitled to it and so our prostate residents of jerusalem. Who don't have israeli citizenship. They also of israel as a twenty percent of israel and they're getting the vaccine at the same rate. it's not discriminating. Based on anybody who anybody who as we clear citizenship or residency in israel belongs to a an hmo. I think part of it is being into an hmo. Israeli hmo hmo sued the health maintenance organization. We have four of them in this country it's in a way Free health care for all accepts that they are in essence private companies competing against each other for government funding. So they have a they have a very civilised. They're not nonprofit incentive. Up of the best of their abilities compete against each other on. We've managed to evidence digitized. Which makes it so much easier..

Lebanon's president is pointing the finger at israel and talking about a declaration of war. Meanwhile israeli troops on the northern border with lebanon are on high. I alert today because the iranian-backed lebanese militia hezbollah is threatening imminent military action. All this comes after reports of israeli drone strikes over the weekend inside inside lebanon israel has carried hundreds of air strikes next door inside syria since the civil war began there as well back in two thousand eleven but recent news reports point two israeli rayleigh involvement in attacks in lebanon and iraq as well a who'd erin is a professor of international relations at the university of haifa in israel <hes> a hoot aaron and what's going on here from israel's perspective and you see it as all part of the confrontation between israel and iran yes michael. You're absolutely correct. The fundamental effect is israel's efforts to try and curb iranian military buildup in the region. <hes> israel views iran is a threat. They're to other a specific context to the escalation. We're witnessing now. <hes> one is a political context. <hes> israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu is going to election september seventeenth seventeenth and one of his biggest selling tickets is images me secure the-the defender israel. There's also military context that israel defense forces takes a disproportionate role in military decision making so this is a multilevel game if you will so let me ask you about the political context context for a moment <hes> and <hes> benjamin netanyahu shoring up his mr security bona fides. I mean there. Is that national election just a few weeks away. Are you worried about a wag. The dog august factor that the attacks right now are politically motivated. I don't believe they're fully politically motivated. There is general consensus in israel including among the opposition that iran is a threat a moreover prime minister netanyahu contrary to his image has been very careful in the use of military force what he is is doing is taking a consensual military air force and trying to leverage it as much as he can politically but but why these attacks now i mean isn't iran the same central threat israel it. It was like last year there to developments that indeed warrant closer luke one is the expansion of attacks to iraq at israel does not take full responsibility disability off these by the way so that's also another efforts may be not to create casing the region. The second at which you referred to was in lebanon here. The details are not fully clear. It is something that was unprecedented. You're right. It's not exactly clear why now we're expanding to iraq. One put possibility is that israel's effort to contain the iranian syria had been generally successful and so de iranians are developing infrastructure in iraq and israel wants to expand their but but even even with israel not claiming responsibility. I mean the reports of israeli airstrikes in syria lebanon and iraq. I mean it all seems pretty. Provocative isn't israel the aggressor sure here so this gus to how do you define aggression. <hes> it's true i glance at israel took the action in attack targets in the region seen from israel however the slow build up of iranian military capabilities and support.
