Oh on must've stuff with space. How do how do these rockets. It's very important. He's not he didn't note. If you noticed he did not go up in a rocket ship. You know he doesn't need to do that. He's he's more interested in going to mars and never coming back. But some of the stuff around you know. The car stuff is interesting. Some of climate change. I really hope that tech will be used to sort of you. Know help mitigate the issues around climate change because in the end that that's all that matters right none of this is gonna matter if we burn ourselves up right. So i think it'll be interesting to see who among these technologists or who emerges across the world to come up with innovative solutions to climate change which is of course the existential crisis art so that that can be the resumption. I wore someone else or someone else. I think they're wasting their time sticking with each other one of the things i always think about is. There's a kid. And i don't know some malia or a girl who hasn't cure for cancer in her head right it's always it isn't just going to be borne by computers to warned by human innovation and the fact that they don't let this talent emerge or they just they hinder.

"Biden has smashed the age barrier for the presidency. Please would you smash the remaining shots for women. I think patsy might be thinking of the glass ceiling that was shattered into a million pieces. Will you run. We know it's exhausting. And you've had bad luck but this is important and it is your times his patsy hickman and i would add to that that of course joe biden did run three times and got there in the end and you have only run twice. What did you think i thank you for. That vote of confidence really is very meaningful but i have no intention or plan to run again. I'm going to do everything. I possibly can to elect people who i think are right for the country and it won't surprise you to hear that. I think the republican party has literally lost. Its mind So i'm going to be working very hard to elect democrats from the white house. You know all the way down the ballot. You said something that really interested me interested me at the time and i looked at it again in interesting. Megan you said. I'm not a natural politician in case you haven't noticed like my husband or president obama and i wondered what you had in mind. Your image of a natural politician was and whether and i know we came back to the gender thing but whether in a way the natural politician template in your mind is quite a mail. Template i mean. Are there women who you would say. Yeah that's a natural politician in a way that i hillary rodham clinton. I'm not a natural bullish. Now it really is more about the the image of a quote natural politician that most people have in their heads. And you know. When when i was running occasionally people would approach me or somebody i was working for and they would say you know. I wanted to change the way she speaks her. I want her to do this. Or that. and my staff got very used to it and their their reaction always was to ask. Do you have in mind. And they would take what she needs to talk like her husband or she needs to talk like you know president obama and they will tell us a woman she needs to talk like and literally people would be dumbfounded. So i was making the point that look i was trying to become president which in our country is head of state as well as head of government therefore would have been quote commander in chief which is the role one of the roles the president plays. And you know. I knew that i had to overcome so much of this. Embedded view about what a leader looks like what a leader sounds like. And i was trying to kind of get people to question their internal views of what a leader looked like and sounded like but but what was the onset urine question to those women. When it was. You'll stop he would say to people. So who's the woman. Do you see a woman around who fits that kind of bill.

"This is the guardian. Welcome to politics. Weekly extra. I'm jonathan freedland. And this week. I hosted a special guardian live. Aventura spoke to the former secretary of state and former democratic presidential nominee. Hillary rodham clinton america's stopped last weekend to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the nine eleven attacks and hillary clinton and i talked about her memories of that day where she was what she felt given that she was the senator for new york at the time we talked about how american politics has changed since those attacks and whether or not the action the united states took after nine eleven particularly in afghanistan had made the world a safer place whether it had all been in vain. We talked about feminism. We talked about the white lotus on tv and we talked about whether she would ever consider running for the white house again. This was all conversation. Hillary rodham clinton it is an absolute pleasure to have you with us with four. This guardian live event. Thanks so much for joining us from your home. In chappaqua new york. I've been having conversations over the last few days and weeks with people about nine eleven and the first question to all of them is what i'm going to put to you first tonight which is just. Where were you on nine. Eleven what do you remember of that day. I was on my way to the senate For my day of work when the first plane hit and we thought like so many did that it was just a terrible tragic accident. And i drove to the senate building and on my way the second plane hit so by then we knew of course it was not an accident. It was an act of terrorism Our staff as was the entire senate and the congress being evacuated to safety because there was a very legitimate fear that the next target would be the us capitol. because i was a senator. My colleague and i chuck schumer a flew to new york. The next day and i will never forget i. We were the only plane in the sky. Besides fighter jets that were providing a a cap a cover over the east coast. Then we got into a helicopter at laguardia airport and flew over ground zero And it was truly as much of a depiction of hell dante's inferno whatever. One wants to envision much more overwhelming than the tv screen. Which of course had to limit what it saw. And i spent the entire day than in new york before Going back to washington late that night to start working on on the recovery program that was needed. Did you imagine zane that the consequences of what you had just seen from the air as you went over in that helicopter the political consequences of that would be enduring for twenty years. And i'm thinking specifically because it was a matter of days later it was on september the eighteenth Two thousand one way. You and the entire senate voted on the authorization of military force which gave the president george w bush then a mandate really to do whatever he decided he needed to do. Did think then that it was possible. The united states troops forces would be in afghanistan for twenty years jonathan. I don't think any of us really could have foreseen at that time. What the next twenty years would bring..

"We had a quite amazing moment at the press conference and following it when professors witty and grounds were were asked to respond to questions and an unto respond to this viral tweet from nikki menards about poor cousins friend who had some serious problems. Apparently with his anatomy after getting the vaccine is probably wasn't expecting it to be scrutinized by the uk's chief medical officer.

He finds it distressing. I mean i couldn't tell whether you've actually heard of human nausea did a good job of sorts of responding to the general problem of misinformation. Thank you so. There are a number of myths that fly around with varying some of which are just clearly ridiculous and some of which are clearly designed just to scared happens to be one of them that is untrue. My own strong suggestion. If i may to media present and not present is repeating them in public actually just gives them credence which they don't need and as we've gone through the summer where there is enough immunity that people consider behave more or less as they were before without the sky falling in. I think we are in a particularly dangerous moment. Now with this where you could easily look around and think what is the fuss. What was this all about to begin with. Look know there's no it's all been a bit of a sky or it's open a bit overblown. And i know that this health professionals and people in government. Oh very worried about that. As it were the the liberation that signs has afforded us could end up being weaponized against the signs. Never a dull weekend with mr by fell back.

"To politics weekly. extra. I'm joanie grieve in for jonathan freedland. It's been fifty years since national security advisor. Henry kissinger made a secret trip to the people's republic of china in july nineteen seventy-one coming amid the backdrop of the cold war in the us imagination. China was red china and to the chinese. The americans were devils. So kissinger's trip marked a massive turning point in twentieth century. History there can be no stable and enduring peace without the participation of the people's republic of china and it's seven hundred and fifty million people less than a year later. President nixon himself traveled to china to meet with chairman mao. After more than two decades of no contact this was the beginning of what would become one of the world's most important and fraught bilateral relationships in the united states interest that china continues on the path of success Because we believe that a peaceful and stable and prosperous china is not only good for chinese but also good for the world and for the united states john. Young jaw is chinese american writer and journalist who grew up in beijing during the one thousand. Nine hundred seventy s. She was eleven. When the announcement came the president. Nixon would come to visit by the time nixon actually visited. I was twelve but even for someone my age. I think you had a vague sense that this was something of a watershed is going to be attorney point of some sort though i clearly. Couldn't you know grasp the real implication of it. But i think all of hanna sense. This is a beginning of something. Nearly a decade after the visit jinyan was one of the first chinese students to be allowed to study in the us on a special scholarship. Kissinger nixon's visit was absolutely critical event in my life but the lives of my generation in china. I wouldn't be alone to say that. This changed my life but despite the hopes that stemmed from that first kissinger trip to china in nineteen seventy-one this was not to be the start of beautiful friendship but rather the beginning of a pretty rocky relationship with former president donald trump and the coronavirus pandemic escalating an already fracturing. We must hold accountable. The nation which unleashed this plague onto the world. China with president biden now at the helm and the chinese economy predicted to overtake the us. In just a few years. How have relations between the two nations changed since kissinger's visit in nineteen seventy one. And what is the future of these.

"Weekly extra. I'm joanie grieve in for jonathan freedland. One of the biggest decisions that then presidential candidate joe biden needed to make during the campaign last year was who he would pick to be his second in command. His vice president knows how to govern. She knows how to make the hard calls. Last summer. biden. Announced that kamla harris the california senator would be his running mate that i will support it still in her. Fifties harris represents a younger generation of leaders and picking the first black and south asian american woman to ever take such a role biding was hoping in part to appeal to a wider swath of the electorate but since taking the oath of office in january harris's rarely been in the spotlight. Save for drawing the ire of some democrats and all republicans who are not particularly happy with her response to two of the issues. She has been tasked with voting rights and the migrant crisis on the southern border. Be clear to folks in this region for thinking about making that dangerous trek.

"Welcome to politics weekly extra. I'm jonathan freedland. No we have not been raiding the archives to give you flashbacks that is new sound from a campaign rally held by donald trump. Just last weekend. In the town of wellington ohio. He's back out on the stump. He's going to do an event in florida soon drumming up support for congressional republican candidates ahead of next year's midterm elections. It means that donald trump is back in the public view. And in a way. He's not been that far out of sight for very long because right now there is a slew of new books about every aspect of the trump administration shedding new light on what happened in one of the books. That's really leaped out to me. At least is called nightmare. Scenario inside the trump administration's.

Jonathan and we are truly looking forward to that conversation but maybe something interesting to cover before that anything in particular comes to mind. Well remains this battle. I'm going through between my rational brain. My superstitious brain because the rational brain says that there is going to be a new prime minister of israel imminently and then superstitious brain says. I won't believe it until. I have a photograph in my hand to prove it's real. Okay so can. I talk to the rational brain first grade. What for i mean. This is momentus week or a pivotal one or a significant one. Pick your own adjective. What for many israelis depending on your world view is either a dream or a nightmare is becoming reality because some time between eight pm. Israeli timer or nine. Benjamin netanyahu will be replaced and just think that drama right. A man who a decade ago wasn't even in politics and this extraordinary changes chain of events will head up a surprising coalition. You really will be the unexpected prime minister on the bennett He needs to go through a confidence. Vote in the knesset and then be sworn in as israel's thirteenth prime minister he will of course replace the man who's longest serving israeli prime ministers twelve years consecutively. More than ben gurion more than margaret thatcher more than tony blair And someone who has become for better or worse the pillar of israeli politics. Now just think for a minute. Jonathan i mean anyone enlisting into the today. That's eighteen can vaguely remember a different prime minister. I dare say you can probably vaguely remember a different prime minister so historic days in this country for sure and you talked about the picture now what you will see on sunday and i wanna point you to that moment again. Between eight and nine pm. Israeli time will be after neftali. Bennett is sworn in as prime minister. When his government's passes the confidence votes and everyone will leave the knesset. You will suddenly see that. Neftali bennett has the security detail of prime minister. Already beefed up these days. One must add but the security detail of prime minister and suddenly benjamin netanyahu with a markedly less secured. I think that will be the moment that even you The emotional part of you will realize that that is that has happened. Yeah now that is huge that moment where the sort of power visibly drains away from one person to the next in the british system is so brutal because the removal men and women. I suppose literally do come as the election returns accounted. And if there's a change of government you see the van sometimes much in the past literal drawer up to the front door of ten downing street and you have that moment in the american system you have that moment one minute past noon on january twentieth and power shifts from one to the other and this will be the israeli equivalent..

Yes so george. Bush is running against as you mentioned the incumbent texts attorney general can paxton and paxton comes with a lot of baggage. He's been facing us. Securities fraud charges for the past several years. But paxton is a very pro-trump figure and so when you look at this race it really is going to become a matter of the two candidates trying to out trump each other for lack of a better term and george. Bush is very comfortable with being a pro-trump candidate. He spoke to trump last week. And he's really angling for trump's endorsement which is obviously kind of the most crucial endorsement that one can get in the republican primary right now and it's kind of remarkable to see him take that path because he is these on of as trump called him. Low energy jeb bush and yet trump's attacks on his family have not stopped him from aggressively courting his endorsement. And i think that that's just underscores the incredible sway. That trump still has over the republican party. It is truly his party. Well as you say the lead up to november twenty. Twenty two has already begun.

Has Scott Morrison spent too much?

"Me. If you've already heard me mention this but one of my favorite quotes during the covid crosses a pdf the guardian. This is the British lift wing newspaper. Now, this was the heart of the coronavirus crisis. It would have been light much quote just as there are no atheists on a sinking ship, there are no free marketeers during a pandemic. Now, the author of that apt quote Jonathan Freedland, he was referring to the audio logical revolution within the British conservative. Party. Now, according to Freedland Boris Johnson's his have defied four decades of thatcherism small-state free-market, thinking I to spend staggering amounts of money and then subsidizing the wages of workers. Could the same thing be said about Australia's Liberal Party they're the party of Howard and Costello now embraces big-spending high deficit government interventionism. And is a permanent state of affairs poor kilis editor at large of the Australian US pipe and Judas Brit is emeritus professor of politics at Latrobe University poll judy welcome back to the show. Hristo Paul, you've written to calms about this subject in the past week, summarize your faces. Will Martha is that all parties and all governments have to respond to the times in which they find themselves on display in Australia. Now we face an extraordinary economic crisis and the response reveals the nature of Scott Morrison, his prime minister and the Mars and government. So Morrison, not responding as Liberal Party progressive or is it Liberal Party conservative? He doesn't see himself in those terms his responses pragmatic selects able and practical. He's not inhibited by former policy and audio logical icons of the Liberal Party. Say What we say is the government has abandoned the long-term syllabus aspirations. It's A. Big Spending government it's a government government intervention focused on Keynesian demand management. It does however on the Liberal Party tradition of tax cuts will see next week. So it's prepared to regulate or deregulate according to the situation according to what's required. So to sum up say that Morrison wants to be defined by results and outcomes not philosophical principle. Okay. You mentioned the tax cuts leaving that aside traditional liberal governments are about balancing the books Paul, how much an as do you think aries in the Liberal Party about in the parliament and outside about these handouts to preserve jobs and livelihoods? Are. I. Don't think there's much on these at all OPTIMA and Tom. and. A couple of reasons for this if there is to be on, he's He's will come through the down the track, but essentially what's happening here is to govern is following the Orthodoxy or what you might call the new Orthodoxy in terms of meeting the financial and economic crisis. So roller response is sort of radical. It's also conventional. The official family is working together very closely. The Treasury the Reserve Bank, what the government is doing is essentially supported by private-sector economists. It's in law and with Patrick amended by the VCD and the IMF not the cabinet is very nodded, the Prime Minister and the treasurer are working very closely together so far the results look good.

"jonathan freedland" Discussed on The Guardian UK: Politics Weekly

"Welcome back to politics weekly I'm Jonathan Freedland now the prime minister's announcement, the pubs, hairdressers, cinemas, and other places could reopen in England from the fourth of July is the strongest sign yet that we're about to reopen. What is a heavily damaged economy? July will be the last month. The government maintains in full its commitment to its job. Retention scheme come August. Employers will be expected to make up some of the money, though is until now seen employees have been furloughed through the pandemic receive at least eighty percent of this hillary, the planning the in October the government will wind down the scheme completely, but what happens after that it's clear. Clear that businesses will struggle long past October unemployment's expected to rise despite the efforts of the chance of the Reshi sue neck. So how should he go about planning for one of the toughest recessions? The UK will ever experience one option is to reduce the standard rate of et from twenty to seventeen and a half percent that would act as a quick injection to desperate economy, the needs to see demand for goods and services boosted in the short term, but then what to look at some of the other options on the table in front of the chancellor I'm joined by the Britain editor for the new. Statesman a new Kalian and Boola the chief executive of the New Economics Foundation, a new two very good to have you both on. Let's start with you, and also with what Reshi sooner and the government has done so far. The chancellor did get a lot of plaudits for that first wave of announcements and the degree of government support with effectively the. Paying people's wages. Huge percentages of they were forced their wages. Plaudits, initially now. Take more time to get perspective. What do you think? How do you assess the job? The chancellor is down. I think the chancellor to be fair has a pretty good job. And I think the thing that really struck me was we are in an unprecedented economic crisis, and it was very clear early on it required unprecedented action, the kind of had to put aside ideology or manifestos, and just do what was needed and I think where the chance should get. Credit is the fact that he sold this. Put in place the job retention scheme, which is a pretty massive intervention, and as such e nine million jobs, as well as kind of packages support is being put in place for businesses in different sectors. I think the big question now is, we ought three this. Even as we begin to ease the lockdown, the ramifications for the economy again be absolutely profound if he like was shifting from the focus being on.

Market panic after coronavirus spending stimulus packages

"As crown avars cases Roy's across the country and industry shuts down hundreds of thousands of people. Losing jobs and businesses across the country lay going broke so is government spending enough or too much and how long can the Australian economy survive before we keep into irreparable damage? Are WE AS POOR. Kili asks in the Australian newspaper This Week. We burning the village to save it. Daniel would is budget policy and institutional reform program director at the Graduate Institute. And she's the incoming chief executive officer of the Graduate Institute and Salmon. Cowan is the research director at the Center for Independence Studies at Sydney. Think tank that I had up Danielle Salmon. Welcome both of you. Thank you come now. Danielle the in response to the government's big spending stimulus packages those a seventeen billion dollar package about a fortnight ago. Then another six billion dollar one earlier this week in response the markets panicked a full stampede trends indicate that the markets will continue their stampede lock fraught and capital is all this government largess justified. Look I think it is absolutely justified when you look at the style of health challenge. And what the government's trying to do to keep that contained in terms of effectively shutting down pretty significant sectors of our economy You know the hospitality industry is gone. anything that relies on social consumption so a lot of businesses headdresses petitions. The canucks very significant swipe at the economy. And so we need this government package in order to support the businesses during what is going to be a very shop. It comes down to it. Jonathan Freedland in the Guardian this week Sam and he says just as there are no atheists on a sinking ship. There are no free marketeers independent so manure relating free-market t doesn't this unprecedented cross justify unprecedented measures such as much bigger government. Well you've wrought remind frame rocketeer evening across as so. I guess that's a positive spun for from Mor perspective. I think there's an important distinction that we need to make I here. Which is the audio of stimulus as opposed to the broader concept of what government support government action in a pandemic? Cannon should be so the idea that what the government can or should do his prop up. Economic growth is in the short term. Which is what stimulus is. I think that that's a very mistaken idea. It's a mistake and concert. Not The least of which because what? We're actually trying to do here is Danielle roughtly. Daddy shutdown pots economy for health rights. So the the issue here is not so much. A case of should the government being involved in short term stimulus. It's what sort of support package. Should we give to cushion some economic impacts of this crisis in? What should we do on a health perspective? Now of an expert on the hill saw things. That's where the government's getting its health advice from an economic perspective. I think it's important to realize that we cannot prop every business in in the country. You know Macaroni France. Basically said we won't let a single business go bankrupt. That would be a stike. We're looking at a potentially protracted shut down in the economy with significant economic impacts. And we need to be smart in strategic about how we deploy our resources. The government doesn't have an unlimited budget. Econ prop up. Everyone and it shouldn't try and provide support to everyone. What it needs to do is target. It's assistance to the areas most in need to the people most in need and ensuring that when we come out the other side of this whereas applies to as we can be to get coming out on the other side of this means massive deficits as far as the. I can see and that would imply a substantial future tax increase crosses. Maybe as soon as next she wouldn't that retired the recovery. Daniel look really depends on how quickly you try to pay down the debt. And you're absolutely right when we will be wrecking up a substantial amount of with these reforms. There's absolutely no question about that So essentially we are asking future generations to pay for this response but given the importance of supporting business through this and I do agree with him. We will not say every business here. But we absolutely need to avoid. Is You know what will be preheated to economics and the economy becoming a permanent one if we lose a lot of productive capacity and the economy that has got to be the priority. Right now yes it waiting for that we go substantial debt to pay off the government will hopefully find a path to do that in a way that will not hit the the economy is coming out of the what happens if the pandemic lasts into the winter and early. Spring Salmon Cowan that the CLEM will be for another round and then another round of high levels of government spending. Is that really sustainable? Well it's an interesting question Australia's coming into these spots. A lot of people were not an is good spot as wearing two thousand night. But we're not coming into these crosses with government dead at one hundred percent of Jj pay a lot of the countries in Europe. The challenge I think here is and what the government You know it's difficult for the government to do this because it's been so reactive in such a short period of tall it but it is. How can we draw on the resources of society? More broadly so that we don't put the entire burden for these onto future generations. You know if you sort of think of it in these terms Government has its role to apply. It will take its level of debt individuals who have resources businesses who have resources we should encourage them to access those resources as well One good example. These we have caught a good deal of money in superannuation that could be used to support people in the short term. It's not going to be a complete substitute for an expanded welfare system in this cross but it could take some of the pressure off the system at a point in time where we don't know how long this will last Danielle. The government did announce that would allow Australians to access a superannuation. What's your position on that yet? Look wait we think unbalanced the good idea and clearly difficult decision for individuals to make to to draw down on the sweeper particularly the time when we hear the knock. It's onto forming. Particularly well sited the value of their investment might not be what they were but in a world in which the government is offering generous safety net but for many people that will not be enough if I have lost their jobs to keep up with their bills So we think allowing people to tap into those saving given the extraordinarily nightshirt. These crosses is a good idea to help people get

Israel's Netanyahu wins re-election, main challenger concedes defeat

"History is littered with great political comeback fodders. You think of Churchill Menzies do goal Nixon John Howard here in Australia by Japan Mahattaya in Malaysia well at Benjamin Netanyahu to the list region off time and again and against all the odds. He's bounceback with tremendous force to win a fifth term as Israel's prime minister now to he more about Netanyahu's triumph, and what it means for the Middle East. Let's he from one of Israel's most prominent commentators Yari is an Israel by Philo at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy. He's author of among other books toward Israel Palestinian disengagement. I heard welcome to IB radio. Thank you for having. How do you account for Netanyahu's victory? Well, number one is to us. Over these comes to running election campaign and years, the manage the compaign alone single handed with a bunch of twenty five year old. Kids who were doing the social media for him. But the main polls is probably the fact that the majority if we want of the Israeli voters in that make me on Yahoo has heavies Dayton called and be charged with corruption breach of its then that team do that. And let's see what the decision of the court is. But in the meantime, according to the Israeli low lasts long before stepping Netanyahu became prime minister. He's allowed to stay in office until convicted at the last instance of the supreme court just. Oh. He's been accused of accepting hundreds of thousands of dollars in gifts in exchange for five years as well as cutting Elissa deals with media publishes now what he have to deal with these in Lockley document by this attorney general in Israel on charges of robbery and fraud. He has a there will be Irie. Which is the the is system. The lawyers Donyo will have the option to present the case of the defense to the attorney general, and then he has to make a decision on whether to press charges and exactly what charges had cases befall politicians in which the hearing change the decision of the general. So he denies wrongdoing, but he might have to step down as he fought the charges, but couldn't Yahoo push legislation grinding immunity to a sitting prime minister that's conceivable, isn't it. Oh, no. Netanyahu, according to Israel. You know, does not have to set down. And in fact, before foaming is next government the coalition government. He's going to secure the commitment of all these potential partners that the current low will be respected that means that baby can stay by means there and at the same time face trial. This is the low by the way, this low is exclusively for four prime ministers. It doesn't apply to ministers members of parliament, etc. Kinda victory some site that he's close relationship with President Trump helped. And if you think about Trump's coal for a US embassy in Jerusalem, US recognition of Israel sovereignty in the goal and hearts stash with Syria and the designation just last week of Iran's Islamic revolutionary guard corps as a terror organization to what extent to that. All of that help Netanyahu secure a fifth term. I think it does Netanyahu. That is is. His generally, including many of those who despised and we'd like to see him gone. They only create his qualities as an international statement. And I would like to point out if I may that even more than Trump, it is is close relationship with letting Putin that help begin because he's to today's early that he's in the position to have the air force start consistently against Iranian targets in Syria. And Mr Putin does not do anything to stop it. Although he has the air force. And the defense batteries underground in Syria that is intriguing because baby Netanyahu has also reached out to many of the SUNY Arabs in the Gulf states, and of course agent and clearly that move is primarily motivated by a joint fear of Iran. On. But you're saying that Netanyahu's close relationship with Putin also helps even though Putin is supporting Iran. Yes. But I think that what we see here is a balancing act played by to hidden in which you baby for over three news. Now, he has if you won't air force to go after the Iranians in Syria, hundreds and hundreds of strikes at the same time. He's using the Iranian issue theory. You know, the to the. The reverence there. So this is sort of hippie poop Putin game, which is going on. You've mentioned the relationship that BB has developed the Sunni Arab states, mainly the Gulf mainly Saudi Arabia and the United Emirates DC's for many in Israel. This is. Proof and everything that he's doctrine is working. And he's Dr knees, very simple. He says things the Palestinians are not willing to ever deal with for the foreseeable future. And that's the case this accepted by the majority of these. He says developed now relationship with the rest of the Arbor. So that later on maybe the students in soften their position and become possible. This works with Israeli public opinion. My guess is our hood Yari. He's a Middle East commentator for his Riley television, the more than four decades. And we're talking about baby Netanyahu shelled to be Israel's longest serving later back to Netanyahu. He's Wally believed to be smug and vindictive you account, the he's remarkable ability to overcome setbacks time, and again, I I know. Oh, be for many years. Politically is very very agile, very creative and innovative. He is an master of tricks, including Dietrich's, which are not in the political book of Israeli politics. He is a guy who doesn't have close friends is a guy who doesn't have people whom he really trust. But he's the guy who's trusted by many. So every everybody knows that the he's in a way a tricky BB. But people say who else do we have do we have a real alternative to be the moment the three ex-chief so fan stuff? We've new Bruin white poppy manage to beat these electorate and that they are not obsolete. And this is a good party reason why be one again. Really against all. Yes. And you say he's the master of dirty tricks babies. Also, the master of wrongfooting his opponents, if you think about the opposition live party creek me if I'm wrong, I think I've ruled Israel for most of its first three decades yet lie. I only want about five percent of the vote. How do you account for lives dramatic decline in Israel? Labor was decimated was gradually destroyed by deals local of ninety three they upset to these early public. We can have with the Palestinians. We could make peace late Prime Minister Rabin appeal by everybody and the late Chiba Perez and things early public by now could be that that was the wrong approach. So the labor party's paying the price. And what you have now a needs that even the people those ships are excerpts of stuff ran against to be now. And called a very very fine result. They were very careful not to say that they are left. It's a bed. World news any politics after flow be very careful not to say that they support a Palestinian state any foreseeable future. Your critic your critics Netanya his critics who had died side that Israel is on a trajectory to become an apartheid stidham bit. Lock the foam, South Africa Palestinians will eventually be a majority, but without the raw of citizens. This is Jonathan Freedland in the God. And he says that Netanyahu's re election heralds the further undermining of the rule of law including threats to the occupied Boyce Bank. How would you respond to those concerns? I it's not the first time that I disagree entirely with will ever Mr. three hundred writing, but Israel is not going to move to a next West Bank. And to assume that the only solution that we have inside is a one St. in which the Palestinians, do not be granted, equal rights is simply out of sync with was Israel is that same into that voted be Becky office. You'll have a it eighty five percent majority for two states Aleutian. Of course, once the Palestinians, Alrighty, finally to go for you have a solid eighty eighty five percent majority against on exertion of even parts of the west thing at cetera et cetera et cetera defect that we are not going to have tomorrow. The fact that the may not be Mr.. Now's first priority. Now does not mean that we are down leaper slope of going to watch date. That's something which is not going to happen knowing my country for what it is.
