Israel's New Unity Government Is a Sham
"Netanyahu and Israel and how this guy But he fought and fought and fought. And he really let him have it. The media in Israel is is really disgusting. Actually more disgusting than Army because there's really only a handful of conservative outlets altogether is no Fox News. In Hebrew in Israel. So they have nothing to that extent. But you have true Stalinist type hacks. Have been trying to take after this prime minister and obviously the people of Israel of like this prime minister. His party and he still got more votes than anybody else. She have a guy by the name of Naftali Bennett. Just listen quickly. He runs to the right of Netanyahu says he's not conservative enough. He runs in his own party. You need 120. Actually, they have 120 ministers. Excuse me, 100 and 20 members of the Knesset, their parliament. His party got six. Six. Lot less than 5%. He's now the sitting prime minister of Israel. He swings to the left, He embraces the left wing parties. He embraces the Arab Party, which is really a jihadi party movement. Because he wants to be prime minister is 48. He won't wait. It's absolutely unbelievable, actually. And so by one vote. Effectively. One member they take over the government.

Tumult Disrupts Israeli Parliament as Netanyahu Era Ends
"Netanyahu served as israel's prime minister for the past twelve years the vote to replace him yesterday in the knesset was partisan as what we see in congress here in the. Us sixty is fifty nine. Nays with one person abstaining. Laura king is an la times global affairs correspondent. She's currently in israel. And was there for the knesset. Vote that saw netanyahu prime minister. Welcome to the times laura. Thank you described that final. Vote itself the scene. That happened during then afterwards. Well as long as the lead up to the vote. I think since the very last moment that something could go haywire for the new coalition and so the vote was about as close as it could be it was sixty to fifty nine with one abstention and so i think there was just an enormous insipid relief on the part of the new coalition. That was trying to ask prime minister. Benjamin netanyahu that they had actually pulled this off and i heard there was heckling there towards holly bennett. That new prime minister. Yes when he rose to speak there was a really concerted amount of heckling from the the allies of the outgoing prime minister barely letting him finish his sentences at times his kids who are in the gallery and they were making little heart symbols with their hands. I think trying to encourage their dad.
Israel Swears in New Coalition, Ending Netanyahu's Long Rule
"When we begin this morning with political drama in Israel, where Benjamin Netanyahu lost his 12 year hold on power. After the Knesset, the parliament voted in a new coalition government, a coalition Rather unlikely coalition. Many think of eight parties. The right wing nationalist politician and former ally of Netanyahu. Naftali Bennett has been sworn in as the prime minister for the next two years. He calls it a government of change. Mr Netanyahu remains head of the liquid party and will become leader of the opposition. So all change in a dramatic vote as well. Let's speak to a member of the Knesset. Unusual member of the Knesset for the far left Hadash Party or Fear, CASS. If who joins us now? What was it like making the vote on the end of Netanyahu's career? How did you vote offer? Good morning. We voted against the government because one has to understand the situation. Well, yeah, for years, of course objected, opposes opposed the policies of this government. Netanyahu is a racist. And there is been inciting against the Palestinian national minority within Israel. Of course, we wanted to do whatever we could in order to get rid of him. But at the same time we couldn't vote but against the Taliban it and his government because this is a far right government. It is true that within this coalition All some representatives of the center of Liberal forces. But in the end of the day, the government is ruled by far right politicians and parties. Bennett and his allies, and in that sense, we added to vote against it in this is this is what we did
The Israeli Media Is Worse Than the American Media
"The israeli media is actually worse than the american media. It's filled with markson socialists. Many of whom. Sam sisters come out of europe you look at. Their governing system was developed by european socialists. And there were battles even the founding of israel between you know the menachem baggins and the ben gurion's and so forth. And so i guess these socialists won the day they decided to set up a government much. Like i suppose with maine's it's broken up at the tiny little parties and they they think this will promote the people's will what's happened in. Israel is a demonstration that the israeli elite and that would include the fools in the media. Certainly the fools in the court system over there don't believe in little democracy or parliamentarianism. There's a saboteur there. There's a rasputin there by the name of bennett. And this guy. Bennett ran for office. Created his own party ran to the right of. Netanyahu was criticizing netanyahu from the right. He won a big six including his own. Out of one hundred. Twenty knesset seats. That's the way it works. They they're voting percentage was so small well under five percent that they could only get six seats out of one hundred and twenty in their knesset the parliament and there's a bunch of little parties like this on the hard left there's a couple of arab parties this on the hard left and they always talk told these guys centre-left there's nothing center about the. The israeli people have rejected the hardcore left in israel. The biggest part is a little cu party netanyahu's party and then you have religious parties zionist parties and together. They tried to to get the sixty one seats necessary to have the government. Well the snuff tally bennett. And his band of six or seven members of the knesset would be members of the knesset. We're supposed to throw in with the netanyahu team not with hard and now with the arabs. But they had an idea. This guy peed a real sleazeball. Lapeer another one with a minimum number of members of the knesset says. I'll tell you what we'll let you be the prime minister first for a year eighteen months you can first. I'll go next if you'll give us your six foot. So that's naphtali. Bennett is in a hurry to be prime minister. He's in his forties netanyahu's chief-of-staff he doesn't like netanyahu and he sees this as only opportunity after all his party only got six or seven members. He's not well liked by the population. Generally in israel. that's all he could get was less than five percent of the vote
What Is Going on in Israel?
"Is going on in israel. What is going on is or. I'm going to tell you what's going on. In israel. the cabal of these tiny teeny weeny political parties. Some of receive five percent of the vote. Or what have you that. Are trying to take out benjamin netanyahu. Some of these parties are led by saboteurs. Who were formerly of the likud party. Which is netanyahu's party. Who are anxious to get big cabinet jobs. Or even become prime minister it is a grotesque grotesque display. And there's an excellent piece written by daniel elbaum and he says the end of democracy in israel as we know now the key player. Here is colleague bennett. I've totally been at once. Served as netanyahu's chief of staff. He's in his forties. He's been chomping at the bit. Believe it or not for a decade to be prime minister. The problem is he doesn't have the support of the israeli people so he's trying to cut deals with the left and the far left and even some of the arab parties he's lied to the electorate of israel. He ran to the right of netanyahu and attacked netanyahu from the right. But there's more putting naphtali bennett at the helm will mark the first time in the history of democracies that someone with less than five percent. Voter support is made prime minister five percent. One hundred and twenty one hundred. Twenty knesset members of parliament. So you need sixty one members to choose. The prime minister naftali bennett including himself has seven

Gantz Appointed Justice Minister After Netanyahu U-Turn
"Most important thing that. I think happened this week on the in. The netanyahu box Is that he tried to appoint a loyalist loyalist to the position of minister of justice refusing to appoint benefits to the job basically a breach of the basic line enacted to allow for. This headed coalition. We have to remind our viewers or listeners. Maybe that the unity government is still in place right because no other coalition has taken. Its its place. This is an important Move the g. block netanyahu the supreme court block them. He had to walk this back and eventually say that. Guns is the minister of justice. Now what why this is important is i. Because it's an ominous signal for all those people contemplating rotation with netanyahu right it's Basically exactly so. This is a warning for you. Secondly it appears that netanyahu is in something of a a freefall really. You know we always treat the to now. Is this sort of dini. Who keeps on pulling the tricks out of his sleeve and the rabbits out of the hat and now it's more like these half-baked ideas coming out of his hat or you know the half-baked rabbits or just the sad. Confetti to to quote Another bb king. The thrill is gone. There's something pale about him. he's he seems desperate after saying all this jonathan. The usual warning applies when trying to say the netanyahu. maybe is that His final sort of Political days. You always have to say there's first of all he wants to be saved by this idea of the special fifth elections not a election to the knesset but just a special election for the prime minister and he wants to have that happen. That is his A lifesaver and again. I would still say that this is not someone who would go gentle into the night
Israel PM back in court as parties weigh in on his fate
"Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu was back in court for his corruption trial Netanyahu's legal woes has prompted the country's political parties to weigh in on whether he should be the one to form a new government will step down to focus on his trial crowds gathered outside the courtroom taunting B. B. K. with the embattled prime minister and arrive to trial in which he has faced allegations of bribery fraud and breach of trust the March twenty third election was largely a referendum on his leadership but produced no clear verdicts after each election Israel's president is responsible for designating a party leader to try to put together a governing majority that decision it's usually kit Kats bots president Reuven Rivlin faces a difficult choice given the fragmented election results that left the Knesset Israel's parliament divided between thirteen parties with crude ideological differences I'm Karen Thomas
What are Benjamin Netanyahu's options?
"Explaining the results of an israeli election especially just hours or days sometimes even weeks or months after polls close is never a straightforward task still. It's not like we don't get plenty of opportunities to practice. This week's general election was israel's fourth within the last two years this upheaval has been unusual in the history of israel. Despite the fact that no single party has ever held a majority. In the knesset the coalition's israeli governments have been obliged to assemble while often riotous lead diverse. Usually hold more or less together for most of parliamentary. Tom but this upheaval has also been pretty weird in the history of upheaval. Israel's recent spate of elections has not been the result of resulted in any game of musical chairs in the prime minister's office. One person has remained in charge throughout israel's longest serving leader benjamin netanyahu and that stability if you can stand another paradox is very arguably the reason for this chaos inasmuch as. It's perfectly arguable. That all four of these recent elections have been referendums on benyamin netanyahu
"knesset" Discussed on KQED Radio
"We traveled to Maine to see how the election has left gaps among us. That's Wednesday on the PBS news hour. Fresh air Today at seven o'clock is also all about billionaires. Pbsnewshour comes your way. Three. Marco woman you're with the world. Think back to just over a month ago who among us didn't have election fatigue or still does thank goodness. We only have to do that every four years. Think about people in Israel voters there are now getting ready for their fourth national election in less than two years. World's aerial Saran joins me on the line from Tel Aviv. So 1/4 election in two years is unprecedented in Israel. I mean, it's not just unprecedented. It feels surreal, like ground Hog Day. What's going on a real How'd we get here? That's absolutely right. Marco, basically Israel's parliament, the Knesset dissolved last night, You know, back in April, Netanyahu and his main political rival, former Army chief, many guns agreed to form a unity coalition to avoid 1/4 election. Just like this one and in Israeli politics you choose from different parties and the largest one forms a majority coalition. The deal they made in April included an agreement where Netanyahu had to hand over power to guns next year. But first they needed to decide on a budget. And that did not happen Hence where we are now, with the government dissolving so they didn't pass a budget. That means there is no budget. How is the government than dealing with this pandemic? You would think they could figure this one out. But the last budget Israel approved was back in March of 2018. Since then, political leaders haven't been able or willing to agree on a budget and like you said that's been disastrous to the local economy. I asked you, 100. Plus now about this. He's the president of the Israel Democracy Institute. Basically, he thinks Antonio wasn't too pleased with the part of the deal where he had to give up our two guns in order to prevent that from happening. But then, you know, basically held hostage the budget and we continued the for an entire year, and now we're entering another new year without a functional budgets. How angry are Israelis right now? Are they blaming Netanyahu? For all of this? This he's been prime minister during the whole crisis. Majority of Israelis definitely hold him responsible for this fourth election cycle. But I should remind you that Netanyahu is Israel's longest serving prime minister still seemed by most Israelis as the best fit to leave the country. I mean, look, even now, here's the good part is pulling first. There's a reason why the column in Israel the magician Right, but it's not magic. So how does Netanyahu do it? Well, Marco on the one hand Cove in numbers here are soaring Israel's on track for its third nationwide lockdown and its suffering from the worst recession in decades. On the other hand, Israel has secured millions of covert vaccines. I mean, it's on track to be one of the first countries in the world where everyone gets the vaccine, and we can't forget that in recent months, Israel signed normalization deals with four air countries. So it's not that much magic. It's more like Dr B. B and Mr Netanyahu complex. I asked you 100, plus no from the Israel Democracy Institute about this, and this is what he had to say. We're experiencing a low point in terms of political instability, deep recession. And dealing with a pandemic. Like other parts of the world. This is really the perfect storm of crises. There's a massive drop in trust and political institutions and also between Israelis themselves. It will be interesting to see what happens to Netanyahu. So one final question. Dario Netanyahu is actually on trial right now on corruption charges. Where does that stand? Yeah, that's right, Marco. So in February, Metal nails trial is going to enter its evidence stage and then you're going to see witnesses testifying in court. But the trial itself is expected to drag on much longer than that way past election date, which is set for March. 23rd. You know, the tenia believes that his best chance is to stay out of prison is if he remains prime minister. More big news to come from Israel in the new year. The World's Ariel Oh Saran in Tel Aviv. Thanks very much. Thanks, Marco. Wall Street is having its moment of introspection. The NASDAQ wants companies listed on its stock exchange to be more diverse. They're urging them to add women LGBT Q and people of color to their corporate boards or face the consequences. Delisting from the exchange. If you look globally, though, just how diverse are corporate boards of directors? Think it's Saladin has a number. She works for the global executive search firm, Egan's Ender, which authored what's called the 2020 Global Board. Diversity tracker Cynthia Get us going here, aside from trying to more accurately reflect to society's concerns, wise diversity on a company's board so important, What we know to be true is in any decision making process. There is benefit to bringing diverse perspectives together. And if we think about the power and the impact of the decisions that corporate boards thank It's absolutely critical that those boards reflect diverse perspectives. So the 2020 global board diversity tracker the report, it looked at businesses and 44 countries what countries have the most diverse corporate boardrooms and which countries to score worst. The numbers that will talk about right now are focused on the balance between male and female representation on boards. One of the things you were excited to do this year, a swell of expand that conversation. And yet the data that we have regular access to is very focused on gender diversity and gender representation on boards. So some of our leaders at the country level New Zealand is at 45.5% of board seats taken up by women. On the other end of the spectrum is an example of Saudi Arabia. Is it 2.6% so that gives you a sense of the range of representation that we are seeing? Cross the world. So is it because of the countries where those companies are located? Or is it mostly about initiatives taken by the companies themselves? It's a combination of things in some countries where there has been incredible progress. There has actually been a regulatory conversation around this. I eat requirements and quoted that have been set. At the country level for representation and in other countries where maybe hasn't reached the point of quotas. There is an observation at neighboring countries where quotas have been put in place. That actually has influenced behaviors at a company level, even if the country government is not getting involved in the conversation, So you've touched on a couple of factors for why companies have not made more progress toward diversity at the highest levels. If you had to cite the top three. What would you say? Are the factors that have stunted the process? One is staying within no network many times for director. Seats are filled by people who are introduced by people who are already sitting on the board. So I think that is number one. Number two. Is this criteria for who will be considered as ready for that seat? There is often a criteria understandably, that they're most interested or demands that somebody is already sitting on a board. So reconsidering that criteria is important. And then the third is from a process perspective, the importance of demanding a diverse slate of candidates be considered for roles and noting when there is under representation of an identity group that would be valuable for the sake of the business conversation. Is this the first time that we have got a real hard data on LGBT Q representation on corporate boards? Yes, Collecting data on LGBT Q representation on corporate boards is very new. Unfortunately, it is still not possible globally because there are many countries many jurisdictions where it would be unfaithful to report one LGBT Q identity. But where we can collect data that data collection is starting. And just having that transparency And that awareness makes a big difference.

We would have said, so that brought a reaction from House Judiciary chairman Jerrold, Nadler, we expect to impeachment question at this point.

And I think when Kevin Knesset explains to you why he's pissed at Fillmore be if you're not you will be so here he is Bernie front, Kevin Connecticut. Good morning Nessie. Hello, kevin. Good morning. Bernie good morning. And before we talk about the governor one thing you once taught me was that to be a good interviewer. You just have to have a conversation with somebody. It's not of interview and has why. That's why you do what you do. And that's why you want the best that of anything. You do say that. I would never say doing these conversations. Thank you. Well, let's have a compensation right here. The pieces on the observer online. It's an open letter editorial to the governor. Phil Murphy Bernie pans of Chris Christie. We don't particularly like Phil Murphy, and you obviously don't so fill in the audience as to what's going on here. Well, set it up Carney is the town where this happening and Hudson county, and when Phil Murphy ran against Lieutenant governor a couple of years ago, we got four to one margin of victory in this town that we're talking about Carney. And so he was really a very popular guy in in Kearney and a couple of months ago, there were these odor that were coming from somewhere that we didn't know exactly what it wasn't. I smelt like a hard boiled day peel times a hundred in the really. Voelker smell you walk out your house? Your kids are out to play it smell it. It turns out the smell for coming from a place called in landfill, which was supposed to be closed years ago. But for whatever reason it stayed open. And it turns out that the smell is being caused by a gas called hydrogen sulfide in great concentration, hydrogen sulfide could kill a human being, but in lower concentration, it can hurt people's lungs caught breathing problems and things of that nature. And so because Phil Murphy's New Jersey sports and exposition authority refused to do anything the mayor of corny out Bertel Santos put in meters that what type of guests coming out of the landfill and acceptable number is third parts per billion. And there have been readings that are eight times that amount. Yeah. It was two hundred forty eight parts per billion was the highest reading so far. So because the governor has sat back in science. No good. And and basically, and because he collects twenty five million dollars a year from towns and businesses that dump sheet rock in that part of the well, that's the key. That's the key heading twenty five million dollars. So he doesn't care if little kids are showing up with breathing problems, which you're gonna get Bernie, I examples because he needs at twenty five million. That's right. And in fact, from what I understand, I sources told me, and I can't confirm that but twenty five million dollars, basically, the same amount of the operating budget of the New Jersey, sports and exposition authority doubt. Now that might change because of the American dream that's coming by John at by MetLife stadium. But for now, what we understand that's the majority of their operating budget every year, they have any -secutive director instant create obese to being assembly made will makes two hundred sixty eight thousand dollars a year to sit there and do not. Nothing basically. And you know, there was a a young man who came to a meeting of the NJS gay couple of months ago, and he told a story about a two day old baby. Boy, the doctor said that after this long surgery that is to Dale boy had he had to live in a town where the air quality was good. And there's no way this man would just bought a house in Kearney can stay because the air quality so bad and his fate yet today's old, but this surgery, it's just not an acceptable level of consult five for this kid to survive. He's probably going to have to sell his house, which what six months ago, and he'll sell it for cheap price. No doubt. I mean, knowing that the landfill is a toxic landfill is next door to your house. He's going to sell for in that regard as well. But it doesn't help also Kevin Knesset from the observer online with his open letter to governor Phil Murphy that you had your Senator Senator Menendez the accused rapist he comes from this corrupt Hudson. County democratic machine which was where Carney is located. I mean, nobody's going to help, you know, Bob, Dan, lives in Harrison, which is on the border of Carney where where two very connected towns. A lot of people in common like each other and Menendez gain Harrison now and in some parts this landfill. It's actually closer to Harrison than it is Carney. So Menendez has said not a single word. Cory Booker has not said a single word nor have any of the state representatives. All Democrats have not said a single word about this. And let me tell you something burning sick. It's not a it's not a part of Asia. Don't be coming back out because Murphy refuses to do anything, and you got eighteen thousand votes in coming in two thousand seventeen stop going to get to in twenty twenty one if discontinues while this is bad. And of course, no, it's not part of that. He just happened to be the guy in charge these these politicians, so so what I know that you you've got a petition out there. Kevin because lots of times things like this is Chris route type things you're doing a great job by writing the story on the observer online in New Jersey. Now, of course, you're on this big show, but truth is that sometimes at the very beginning grassroots getting a lot of stuff done. I know there's a petition out there to get rid of this thing. How many signatures? Do you have right now? Well, Christina Montague who is a civilian lives. In Kearney us. She has put this together. And she has done a tremendous job. There's only five thousand signatures in a town of forty one thousand and right. So people are not I'm not sure everybody knows about it. So they can go to the. Observer dot com and sign the patient right there. You don't have to be a resident of putting county or county or Harrison to sign it. Anybody can sign it. And unfortunately, there's only five thousand signatures and Christine has done a great job getting the word out there. But it's not enough signatures. Right. Kevin tell us Earth Day just came and went and tell us what happened on that day. I mean, it was pretty as you put it or Dacians. He has a set of balls like I've never seen. The governor was interesting sitting on the same day. There was a protest with almost a thousand people in Kearney protests. This landfill five rows away at liberty state park wanting a five K Earth Day one on yes. And reporter from competing newspaper of our to ask them about the landfill. And he said, I don't want to talk about that. I'm good at one race while fell. Yes. So he's been very very arrogant about it. So Jon Ballantyne was chairman of anti gay just blow off anytime. They have these meetings and residents show up. They think they have the right answers and just got safe and proof that gas in at too high level on get sick gonna get sick. And my boss AFI up shown, some newspaper burning sick was that Matic apple went away for many years and sexual back to Carney a couple of years. It's been poodle became back. Yeah. In the office that it gets scary. But then when she goes away, she goes down the shoreline against sometimes it goes away. Right. So if that's not there that is being caused by this hydrogen.

Perhaps even longer. I don't think so we will see the legal holiday in Israel. So it makes it easier for citizens about election day and Israel's become an opportunity for his residence. Spent time at the beach of family barbecues in the national parks hike trails and argue with each other. Of course, most of the polling stations opened at seven AM to eight PM, right? So they're seven hours ahead of Washington DC. So and their ten hour ahead of the west coast, most of the points donations open some of them open at eight they stay open till ten PM what a pain in the neck, right? I like Ohio, which is at six thirty in Israel. They go to ten PM. So they can argue right up until everyone goes to bed exit polls come out once the polling stations close, you know, what I think of polls nobody that. They're no good. They're trash. I don't even know why people pay for them. They were so wrong on election night, twenty sixteen at that point. They were so wrong election. I two thousand and four I call jaw down in Dallas. With Tom trap and doing the night off. Of course, I was up all night long thanked don't sweat. This was John Kerry thought he'd been elected president something's wrong with this John Potts onto their dirty. And if you get bad bad that in bad that out don't Pani attention, but they start trickling in they come into Wednesday morning special ballots counted by the Knesset at the central election committee workers all their vulture kind of election officials either at the polling places or at one of the eighteen regional elections there many talk, by the way of Russian interference in this election. I think they know better than the Mets with I tech of Israel. Majestic some Israeli election different from those in anglophone countries from which a large number of our readers tale. If you're one of Israel's six million three hundred and three nine thousand two hundred seventy nine eligible voters all eligible voters are registered. Okay. So where do you vote? It's not computerized voters must cast their ballot and an assigned station. So if you're living Haifa, this Jesus Marion just gone down to Bethlehem to register. If you live in Haifa, but you happen to be on vacation. I lot on election day. You will not be able to vote unless you get your rear end back to Haifa. So that's kind of interesting Israelis may not vote by absent tea, which can be a disappointment for those among the twelve percent of eligible voters who are typically outside of Israel on election day. Sorry. I want the Israeli system. Very view citizens are permitted to vote on election day polling station that is not their assigned. One is Israel defense forces soldiers, medical staff and patients in hospitals prisoners disabled people, by the way, three thousand nine hundred forty polling places or accessible to people with disabilities. In blind. Individuals are permitted to bring one person behind the partition to help them catch. They're out in the case of the military voting began on Saturday night. Finishes with the rest of Israel today. But sometimes polling stations go to the soldiers instead of vice versa. Some stations set up on military bases. Others. Brought out the soldiers in the field another exception. Israeli diplomats Simon embassies. They voted on March twenty seven. So they're they're pretty organized in Israel. Well, the state does not foot the cost of filing Railly's home from abroad. Devote? It does provide a free bus ticket. Anyone who needs to undertake intercity travel intercity travel to get his or her assigned polling station university students, for instance, actually, we hope they don't vote. They don't know anything university student joke. You know, Email is listening over at at media matters. And Aimo is the person who must listen, we're changing they change them out. Because I'm in harm's way. The media matters propagandist and brainwashing gang they assigned someone to listen to my show every day. And I think they must rotate them to keep them from actually learning something. But that was a joke Email so university students can take advantage of the free bus tickets. If they studying city different from their permanent residents, the abrogation of the station to which assigned is a measure the targets voting frog, and it is strictly enforce if you're eligible you've received a little card by. Mail from the central election committee notifying you which both is yours. And where it is located note there are multiple polling stations and many municipality make sure to go to the booth labeled with the number you received or you will not be listed as an eligible voter. How about here's what you must bring with you. You must bring a form of state identification one of three and his Rayleigh driver's license with a photo in his Rayleigh ID card in his Rayleigh passport with the photo unnecessary. Do not bring weapons handbags or packages to the point station. Good good. That makes sense. Do not bring weapons handbags packages. You may have to leave them outside the vote. Now, a lot of people in Israel idea. Like Kerry there when I was at the western wall with ambassador Bolton in January. There were more assault weapon. I mean, the idea is everywhere and they've got lots of guns. So that no one takes it very seriously. But you can't bring it inside. Now that you were.

"Hello, everybody. Mark Levin here. Our number eight seven seven three eight one three eight one one eight seven seven three eight one three eight one one big election in Israel, as you know, involving the Knesset prime minister, we have on the phone news. Breaking the poster for prime minister Netanyahu, John McLaughlin, and happens to be a friend of mine. John. How are you, sir? Arcus? Great to be here. Great to be on your show. Tell us in Israel. I I know it's a little late. It's it's a little after one AM as I see here. And you'll hear noise in the background says I'm at the prime minister president and the ready to go to Tel Aviv and declare victory. We'll tell us about it. Well, it's one of those campaigns where very complex system where what you have is. You have one hundred twenty Knesset seats and vote that is they vote. They're voting for a party and the percentage of vote that you get determines the number seats, the Knesset, and the leading party gets the first crack at CNN able to form Giardi coalition for the last four years. Prime minister Netanyahu had a, you know, very stable right wing government, where he was able to last for years when the average rela government lasts only two years and right now, according to exit polls in their counting votes. The cubs in channels have a at the at sixty six and sixty four respectively at a one twenty sixty out of one twenty. So the right wing has kept majority and usually in twenty fifteen the TV station that has us losing or tie. Tied in the block vote. They had us down six pardon me that has tied last time. And we ended up winning six seats. So what's going on is is that this town the votes, and we're going to pick up to use the exit polls underestimated the strength and a lot of people have thought that after five weeks out from the election. When I mean, they just literally kept pounding in the media for the Torney general to indict the prime minister recommend to indict it was really bad because you don't do that. They did it five weeks out and we sell behind in the polls after being ahead and basically by the time election day world around most of these rarely public just ignored it. And so now that there's a these two polls have the majority ahead and the right wing majority and one has what could tied with a leading opponent thirty six thirty six. They don't have enough votes. The left to form a coalition, and it appears that only one of the two Arab parties will get any seats in the Knesset. They had a low turnout and. And the other Paul has virtually tied. So well, I'll tell you John McLaughlin. I'll give you a little news him looking at the times of Israel, and they say with two hundred twenty eight thousand votes tablet, Likud's head by five percent. Now, of course, had depends where the votes are coming from. But I haven't seen anything, and I've been looking at these Rayleigh news is and I haven't seen anything that suggests that the prime minister's opponents can put a government together. Now, they can hear ready. He he went out and who is new. Government. He already tweet it out. That's a hey just announced he's going to back Netanyahu. Right. He's part of the right wing coalition. Yeah. And he's basically I mean, we almost have the sixty votes now before the count the votes you where basically the religious parties and Likud being in the mid thirty thirty six these two poles when you had conclo- religious parties, another twelve or so what close to sixty votes ready only take a couple of more parties because we got to see who qualifies. Today have a minimum threshold of three point two five percent where you get four votes at the genetic. We have to see if a couple of these other right wing parties make that fresh hold and then they'll put us over the top. And, but it's a great country, and they know how valuable the prime minister has been with terms of security and strength and grow in the economy, and he's on his way to Tel Aviv now to declare victory and I league opponents cancer low-paid. I guess they did there. Casey Abrams actor Eddie they said what they said they said they've they've won. But if they can't former gun, they don't have the labor party which used to be a real party is basically destroyed. Yeah. They only have five percent seven percent something like that. Right. They were talking about they were talking about the lead of resign or retire tonight. But he's not really popular. So like, you said it's you've seen that that used to be the thing. Party of the labor genes in Israel, and they've declined here because Netanyahu is really growing economy. And it's now high tech he's a capitalist per sector. Yeah. Twenty-first-century economy where people are doing well, and then they don't really need to be in a labor union. So so there's been a big decline there. And this other fellow Benny Gaon sent his partner yellow P who said, you know, they they had they would do this -cation where they would switch off being prime minister's. You know, they left the Senate. But they didn't you know, they really didn't they tried to move more towards the center. So that they move away from merits, which is on the left and a good, which is the labor party, the last, you know, Jones, this would be assuming this all holds up, and I agree with you. I don't I don't see how it doesn't. But if swimming it all holds up, this is quite a remarkable victory for the prime minister because as you point out. The he's got some of the same issues going on the Trump has the entrenched bureaucracy is against him. These prosecutor this came after him the media in Israel. I don't know if people in the United States, even understands there's no Fox News. There's no conservative talk radio per se like this. And so he's hanging out there, basically taking all these interests on instill, it looks like the Israeli saw through all that. I mean, he's had in two thousand fifteen where I work with them. And we won that election. There was a control as investigation Trump, and they had a report right before the election and some of these investigations are just an extension of that. And so they've been persecuting them for four years. So there's a real parallel with the left his decided that if you win legitimately. They decide to take you out in whatever means possible with these witch hunts, and you know, it's for the prime minister here. I think for the cases fell apart and the last minute, you Torney general five weeks out for an election, which you don't do in the United States, but in Israel here did it because it was so much pressure has a small place in the left wing press press for it. So they they recommend to indict when they have a hearing a few months now chances of those cases will fall apart. So that that was the most difficult part when this was happening. I was saying, okay. What happens, and he says, well, we won't be able to have hearings, and and guess he's drawn out for months for now. So so there is a real parallel. And and they are Arnie is just like President Trump had appointed Jeff Sessions to be trying to jail. He put it the prosecutor here. The attorney general's appointed for ten year Termine somebody that the prime minister pointed and he's been dependent. It's an independent physicians down accountable. So it's like having a special prosecutor. So, but, but you know, it wasn't an issue that it wasn't people aren't Tokyo science. We're really focused on the strength of the of the country in terms of the security and in terms of the economy. And when you think about you know, what happened here where the president has got. I mean, prime minister's gotten President Trump to move the embassy to Jerusalem to whole out of the Iran nuclear deal, which are opponents then against had supported, and he also when he came in and said we recognize Israel's sovereignty over the Golan. I mean, people looking at the prime minister and saying why are we going to change this right wing, governments working and prime minister who's the leader? And it looks like the votes like you said the times of Israel, the real votes will actually be better than the polls. And that's what happened in two thousand fifteen so so we're optimistic that by the time they count the votes. Between probably do between eight pm two AM your time. It'll be an even better results. And then just to me favor. Tell tell the prime minister for me if you will. If this holds up, not only, congratulations. But he needs to keep Dermer exactly where he is. Fastener to the United States actually run. But that's a that's a very important position that he has his great spokesman for Israel. But let me tell you. He used to be the prime minister's campaign manager impulsive we worked together. Yeah. And so the brilliant man, but he does he does a great job for the state of Israel and and run somebody who grew up with Florida. I know, and then they did Aaliyah, and he's a buddy of mine is a very smart, very, smart and intelligent, a great strategic lying because when the prime minister spoke to congress for years ago Ryan was his help with speech, and he's really a great advocate for both countries in it too bad either, by the way. No, I'm I'm just upholster here. Righteous gentile, I McLaughlin on Jewish actually actually went to. You know, you know, it is something you work. We work over the last couple of days and sometimes God let your win so good guys get to win again. But it was very important that we want to twenty fifteen and it was very important that we won twenty sixteen President Trump and now prime minister Netanyahu, get reelected. Is very important for the world that have that mall, clarity and vision in terms of what's what's right, and what's wrong? You think limit? Let me ask you this before we run out of time. Here. Do you think this is is it's it's let me use this this imperfect parallel the canary in the in the coalmine frosty. Think this also suggests with respect to President Trump that there's a lot of support out there despite the media tax despite the attacks from congress and the prosecutors and all the rest that that that Americans in Israeli have a tremendous amount in common. And so do you think you think this is an indication that perhaps Donald Trump is on a on a pretty decent glide path? Yes. I mean, I mean, we had him you saw pulse..

Now, the Knesset evolving an election set for April ninth people will be able to follow that timeline to where we are today. I'm by going to the media line dot org. Absolutely is. Okay. It's free everybody. And if it's it's phenomenal really because their objective, and it's truth telling organization, all right? So Felicien Michael Friedman. The polls closed or they about the close not yet. They close at ten o'clock local time, it's now eight eleven so there's a little bit more time for the okay fine. Eight. All right. Let let me let me retail you both from the anti Likud anti Netanyahu tight, Trump New York Times. And I mentioned that because it it's clear where they stand in in their unfortunately in their news columns, but Nevertheless, I want you to tell me if this is accurate, even the New York Times can be accurate. So here. So let's see the New York Times headline Israel elections. Twenty nineteen live updates. It. Just it was just put up. All right. So if he wins he could make mister Netanyahu sixty-nine could make history in a number of ways in July. He would become Israel's longest-serving prime minister. Okay. That's that's either a factor. Not a fact, I'm sure it's fact he has vowed to annex parts of the West Bank reversing half a century of policy and setting back prospects for a Palestinian state. So what is the what is the truth on that? Well, he did say a couple of days ago that he was going to have his reelected gong to annex the West Bank that doesn't mean the whole thing. It doesn't mean that he's going to re occupy Arab areas, you know, from nineteen forty eight until nineteen sixty seven Israel wasn't there. Israel next to it. Taking the brunt of a lot of shooting. A lot of bombing Naipaul's even harder to the nineteen sixty seven war changed all that Israel conquered the Golan Heights. The Gaza Strip the west thing, and he's Theresa lem. And that's it. The Lafayette everybody on their heads all these years in split situation where the Palestinians who by the way prior to the early nineteen sixties didn't call themselves Palestinians. But then lay claim to all of every inch that was conquered in the war, which was a bit of reverse history. They've played into it as their state inflammation. So they, of course, in like the idea of Isreaeli building communities and in that area. It's never been an ex legally. So there's a separate set of rules on the books for people who live in what they call Israel, proper, or whatever term they want us to refer to it. But those who live in what some call today and Samaria the West Bank areas. Actually have a separate set of rules in a number of ways. They also share the land with the Arabs who want them out. Whether or not this is a great obstacle to peace. I'm lines who doesn't believe it is. I think it's airing at this point. I think there's nobody involved in Middle East politics. It doesn't know where the board is going to end up they know about the three so-called settlement blocks, and and the agreements and the land flops this is all been worked out time and time again, it's really a question of a political decision. And that's why when Mr Netanyahu makes this statement as he made it has more political repercussions than anything else that if you love them, they love what he said if you're gonna hate what he said. But so so the times is accurate that he said he would annex parts of the West Bank, and this this and this was the first. Yet. Nobody is uttered the word people right wing politicians have encouraged it had called for has that for it. But this is the first in terms of the candidate and clean up to Victor in the race actually saying that if elected I'll do it. And of course, you can't separate it from the string of events that happened. Donald Trump became president. What used to be the the wish list or the bucket list for things that Israel could do that? They've never been done before the latest one is to utter what Netanyahu just started that wouldn't have been said under another American ministration. Right. Trump card in terms of the election. Dan, let's not forget this is bring out those that are going to follow the code. Right. In other words to solidify the vote on his make sure the base comes out to vote as as we do the same thing here show how dramatic and dramatically wall. I have you do you think it's dramatic me important statement that the prime minister made. Well, I think he is following the pass of what's transpired Michael bender girl in terms of what happened since President Trump came into office since you saw the moving of the embassy since what happened in terms of saying that the Golan Heights belonged to Israel. I think the pattern is not surprising. I think the big question people are asking have to this is what that I mean, if you actually win the election tonight, the strength that he holds the sky's the limit probably in the mind of feeding opinion, but the racist very very close. You know, you're talking right now, they're six point three million people were eligible to vote and bear this in mind at six o'clock that sixty two percent had voted and they're showing historical lows in the Arab vote. So anything can happen between now and ten o'clock and ten pm this evening when they close the doors, no more votes and people wait to hear what happened, and we have staff and teams actually at the blue and white headquarters this evening, our managing editor as well. As other reporters at the blue and white headquarters, so very interesting to see what for my listeners, the blue blue and white is the party that is the umbrella of the opposition. To measurement Tanya, correct? Yes. It is. Okay. So this is this is where we're staying now. I don't understand why this historically low Arab vote. The you. They are feeling disgruntled. They're feeling that their voice hasn't been heard. That's always been commonplace during election about more than ever nothing. They feel is moved in terms of the Israeli Palestinian issue. So these are some of the the reactions that they feel that they by not voting and not showing allegiance to the state of Israel their declaration against the fact that nothing has boomed in their voices for their voices since Donald Trump became president. They the official position of the Palestinians has been to sever relationships with the Americans while this isn't that it's it's an extension of it because the stopping to speak with the Americans will recognizing in American peace plan or anything else. Open the door to disconnecting. Just nothing part of it. Don't feel you have to do anymore and in effect being coerced and embarrassed fifteen the neighbors and friends actually cooperating with something strongly as Rayleigh, which is considered also American Bank ritual being Isreaeli.

He suspected of having advanced regulatory decisions that benefited the Zach controlling shareholder. Excuse me. Schaal elevate in exchange for positive coverage. From the elevate shown Walla news site. Mandalit. He's the attorney general is reportedly going to announce he's charging Netanyahu with bribery. So charges a breach of trust and won a bribery. What exactly did Netanyahu get an exchange for whatever it is? He said we've done, ladies and gentlemen, positive press coverage. This is just insane. Absolutely insane. And of course, they're leaking to the media in advance what they plan to do another. Another specialty from our own. The criminal Justice system. If indeed charge Netanyahu will be notified that he can request a hearing to contest the planned indictment. The hearing process could take up to a year. During which time Netanyahu. Not legally obligated to step down stike clear if Netanyahu could continue to serve after being formally charged with criminal offenses. So here you have this attorney general. This is going gonna drag his nation into a crisis. These ambiguous laws. Ambiguous fact patterns. Mickey Mouse nonsense. And it's not clear. If Netanyahu could continue to serve after being formally charged with offenses. Netanyahu has denied any wrongdoing in all three cases, and it's alleged that the investigations against him or a witch hunt involving the left the media and the police relentlessly pressuring a week attorney general. Responding to reports a spokesman for Netanyahu, call the allegations of bribery, ridiculous and said Netanyahu did not receive anything anything or give anything. The coverage in Walla, the newspaper was negative and intensified ahead of the elections. The spokesman said look look at how you look at how they're looking at this. Wow. Did he get positive press negative press did Netanyahu enrich himself now? But it doesn't matter. Look.

"Dot com study joined by my palaces and Glasser of the New Yorker, she is, of course, go-to person on all things DC. But I want to go back to her previous experience in Jerusalem. I was just right. Good morning. Susan. How are you? Good morning, you how you better than I was five minutes ago. Just reading in the Jerusalem Post that there is a chance that the Likud list is going to include Michael Oren because none of the Likud primary. Members are considered American Jews in the normally want one or two all the American Jews didn't win and the Likud list. And so Netanyahu is looking around and Michael ordinance. The obvious guy gets two picks. He gets you know, a couple of secure spaces on the list. I think that would be terrific news if or joined Likud and eat not ruling it out in the Jerusalem Post article, what do you think? Well, you know, he was the long-time Basseterre here, of course, to Washington. He's also historian by rights and somebody who understands the relationship between the two cities probably better than just about anybody in the Knesset. So it obviously is probably a good thing from the point of view of US Israel relations. And frankly, you know, you look at the campaign that Netanyahu is running right now. And it's all. About ties to US ties to Donald Trump's. There's a big billboards with pictures of Netanyahu and Trump side by side again on the side of buildings in Tel Aviv. You're a senior Israeli official. I went there with Bolton in the first week in January. So it's been a month now and drink with a senior Israeli official at the hotel king, David David hotel, and they said if there's going to be a war he wanted to be in the next two years when Trump is president. And I think that is a widespread view. I do not believe that's limited the Likud. They just require if they're going to go up against Hezbollah in Iran. That's not HAMAs. That's fit twenty thousand missiles, which are not the ones that come over from Gaza. They're the ones that come from Hezbollah. So I understand why Netanyahu was running out. He also has corruption charges for around him. Correct. Well, that's right. He has not one, but multiple potential indictment against his own attorney general can is considering what the next steps will be. You know, there's that increasing outcry in the past is really politicians have step aside when faced with allegations like this Netanyahu has taken a much more confrontational vowed to fight it. So there's a lot of uncertainty except for this question, which is to say most people are fairly certain that Netanyahu's long reign. He's already I think the longest serving continuous hide minister of Israel. He's not the one because every ever, but he's already got one record in and people think that it is likely to continue. I don't when I was there, and I was at the prime minister's residence along with a half dozen other journalists when Bolden appeared with the prime minister, nausea and the tunnels with Ron Dermer. It just occurs me. There are three Israelis whom Americans understand listen to look up. One is Netanyahu. Another is Ron Dermer and the third is Michael Oren. And when you need an American ally to be there, you need all three of your leading communicators to be in a position communicate if they war comes. That's why I think the odds of orange stepping up into that Likud list. I I love that Jerusalem Post story. I just tweeted out Susan, let's turn to the state of the union before I asked Pacific's your overall assessment. You know, I thought it was an interesting speech. It was a really a mishmash of a lot of different speeches all in one. Right. You have sort of ceremonial Trump, which we actually rarely seen. Then you had I think embedded in the core that at least I discerned was really the beginning of the president camping twenty twenty message. And you saw that not only in the illegal immigration, which was at the core. I say twenty sixteen campaign, but this emerging team of bashing the saying the Democratic Party turned far left attacking socialism and making this link between Venezuela and US liberal with with an interesting pivot. So to me that was probably the new year thing rather than any specific legislative agenda, which I really didn't hear the new cycle makes people think in terms of twenty four and forty eight hours. I looked at this as the first act in to act state of the union part two is coming next year where he's going to look back at this. Olive branch speech and say either thank you for working with me on infrastructure immigration, border security, bringing down drug prices, or he's going to say, you do nothing Democrats in the house here. I was last year. I offered you all this olive branch. You said nothing, you're socialist, and your friend fantasized, by the way, Susan the turn towards abortion, which I rarely discuss on this show for simple reason, I'm very pro-life. But I know that no one's mind changes rapidly over this, and it never changes over a public debate. But the president brought I mean, very vivid language to this and contrasted family leave with the north in position, which is so controversial. Are you surprised to see the life issue back in the middle of presidential politics? Well, you know, you I think your point is well taken one that rarely do people change their point of view on issues of principle, except apparently Donald Trump who is the person who has changed his mind in a very opportunistic. On this issue. So, you know, I think that's the problem with the the identity right now of grafting on this outsider longtime democratic president onto a party the Republican party that he's a newcomer to he's taking an adapted the party's positions over the last few years. This is a striking example of that. But I I have to tell you I just on route to the CNN studios this morning passed the national prayer breakfast. Where President Trump will be speaking to if you told anyone that Donald Trump playboy. Who loved the coverage of his many divorces in your coblets would become the public face of evangelical Christianity, and he abortion culture wars a decade or two ago. People would have just been horns day. It's the same trap path traveled by Ronald Reagan, Hollywood guy and divorce a to the White House, but over a shorter period of time with a lot more Inc in the middle. I would I would simply say he has tweeted this morning three or four times most recently presidential harassment. It should never be allowed to happen again. And this one Democrats at the top are killing the great state of Virginia. This is news to me as I am a Virginian if the three failing Paul's where Republicans far stronger action would be taken Virginia will come back home Republican in two thousand twenty. The Democrats do face a problem and not just Virginia Democrat, Susan. They can't have Northam and Fairfax and the AG in black face as their people. They really do need to actually probably give up the state house in order to save the state. They were so close to a majority in the house. But if they they live with black face sexual harassment black face for three years. That's not good for Virginia. Democrats. I think you're you're right about that, Hugh. I, you know, it's interesting you've seen obviously almost all public figures. Your Democrats have come out and said that the governor has to go, but people are just it's like watching a car crash. You know, who knows what's going to happen? The attorney general to mom what was going on. And the next person up is the guy at one because they pulled his name out of a hat. I I left California because it was whacking Sacramento. I moved to Virginia. And boy, it's wacky there. Let's conclude by talking a little bit Susan about the Elizabeth Warren problem on the left. It's called cultural appropriation on the right? It's called fraud. She signed that Texas bar association native American she'd been asked straightforward. Have you done it before she said, no? But then yesterday there leaked word from people close to war, and there may be additional. Physical evidence of her having considered itself, a native American I have one word for this toast. I don't think she can catch up to Kamla Harris who had a magnificent roll out. And I I just think she mortally wounded as a candidate your assessment. Well, I have to say I I do agree that she is not how to straw launched her presidential campaign. I always thought that there was a certain feeling to her appeal as it was. And you know, this is not the kind of thing that people would expect. I you know, she is much more comfortable and solid when she's talking about policy prescriptions when she's defining the Democratic Party policy agenda in shaping the debate. Even if others don't agree with her, and she just on the personal staff. She just doesn't feel comfortable. She hasn't connected. And they're just weird questions that have followed her for a long time. So she's never put it to rest in a in a convincing way. I've always recalled when. Republicans ran with tobacco money support. The cigarette would show up outside their rallies. They're always props. Well, we're going to see a blown-up Texas bar card at every Elizabeth Warren rally now and people are it's never going to go away. It's it's a tattoo, and that means when a story comes out about Amy klobuchar that she's mean to a staff there's no way to visualize that right? But this is a visual and visuals kill candidacies. It's Ed Muskie crying on the back of the truck. It's Bob Dole alone in a field. It's George H W Bush looking at his watch. Right visuals. Kill candidacies. Well, that's true. Although I don't know whether a nineteen eighty six bar document is is of the same level as a smoking kills type role. So we'll see. But you're absolutely right that she stumbled out of the game. Right. Let me let me turn to the vice president who I continue to when I was first asked by the post and part of the ten people the poster pulling apparently for a long period of time to who. We think is that. I said Joe Biden, Michael Bloomberg or the old guys with the most experience in money, followed by Kamla, Harris. What do you make of the does to people? I have at the top of my list right now in February of twenty nineteen where your way from Iowa Biden and Bloomberg. I am blessedly humble when it comes to making predictions in the post twenty six schools world. I you know, I will say call me I have been skeptical about the idea that the country is really ready to embrace a second New York billionaire, and I remain skeptical that that's the way to go. I also remain skeptical of the idea, then octogenarian president is what America needs at this moment in time when you have so much generational change and ferment they are, however, not only impressive political figures, but people who command much wider name identification, and and loyalty of they have real records of accomplishment. So I just don't know how it's gonna come out frankly with so many people in the field. I do think it's interesting that people like Mitch Landrieu. Who someone I found very impressive are choosing not to run and do feel this sort of like gravitational poll of the party to the left at the moment yogurt said he also saying he's not gonna run. Eric Garcetti not gilgo was his dad who I knew back in the day. But Eric our city and moon and land Mitch Landrieu saying we're done we're outta here. Maybe it won't be thirty on the stage. Maybe the only twenty five we will see Susan Glasser always fun to talk to you follow Susan into New Yorker, of course, in s g one very close to being the notorious SPG one, I think and Twitter at SPG one follow me to the next hour. But also remember follow me to relief factor dot com. I tell you about this three times a day..

And so we actually have positive proof that there is something large something nonferrous, and and deep underground both in chrome Ron and the site that Jim Bartels research, specifically points to right outside of. Homerun? So he thinks that's the ark. But isn't doesn't the the mercy on the ark? Isn't it covered in gold? Yes. And acacia where that's all gilded. So the nice part is that just like in Egypt and just like with the Dead Sea scrolls as the desert Catia would was buried deeply somewhere in the Judean desert. It would come out looking pretty much the same as it went in and gold as well. You know, doesn't tarnish survives the test of time. Pretty well. So both at those would be detectable and also look pretty good pretty well preserved. My we don't know exactly what would be there. But we just know that we got a positive scan for something that's related to the copper scroll or something that's large nonferrous and buried deep which I can't imagine anything other than copper is called treasurer for that. If it is the ark of the covenant there. I mean that that that would be the greatest archea. Logical discovery of all time. Yes, listen, I mean, people speculate about the ark of the covenant state. But one thing that I'll tell you about yours history is that there's a day on the calendar every year that Jews more of the first temple in the second temple. And then they memorialize it. There is no such day for the ark of the covenant. And the ark of the covenant is what days the temple it's imparted. It's holding us and part of it sanctity. It was in the holiest of always. So really just the narrative about what happened to it. It is a racist. And it's gone. But it's not that the Jewish tradition. Does not say that the covenant lost, you know, even with Temple Mount movements that has recreated lots of items for the third temple. They don't recreate the arc. The arc is meant to be found. You can't you can't make an arc replica for any future temple. It has to be the original right and the third temple cannot be built without the arc. Now the arc. According to legend, awesome, destructive power, the only people that can approach the arc would be the Levi's. Exactly. So Jim Barfield, you know, being a religious man has his being been very serious. He takes this very serious. And so part of his meetings at the fan he drain and with the religious and institutional bodies in Israel. It's the save should this event. Take place should we be able to to unseal this potential cave outside of Croom run or any of these items fee on earth income run we need there in Israel. There's there's a list Cohenim EMA. They know who they are several of the Temple Mount movement study how to handle these objects and prepared should that day. Come and so he had one meeting with a leader of one of the Temple Mount movement. People and Gershon Salomon is. His name. And and he asked them should this happen. You know, Koran is not so far from. So this happen how quickly could you get priest here? And and gross and said, you know, give me.
"knesset" Discussed on The Tel Aviv Review
"But as you is certainly big factor while we're talking about I'll Jazirah I mean, you have the whole chapter on deserve. What you call the elephant in the room. And you've mentioned really why it's Okon traverse versale. But what I one of the things that struck me was the accusation that Jazirah is biased and one of the examples that you give is that L el-jazeera one of the first television stations to cover Israel and to cover the Israeli Knesset into cover Arab Knesset members who are critical in the Israeli Knesset, even as they're also showing terrible damage done to Palestinians by the nation. So I guess really leaving aside the question of bias. My question is really was the Arab world struck by watching parliament debate and showing minorities critical of the government debating openly, not to glorify we all know, the problems of in Israeli democracy. But do you think that kind of thing has an impact on Arab say, why are we not? Able to open our mouth and criticize our own governments. Of course, it does. Of course, it does. I mean, it's fascinating. And I think that I just had a lot to do with it and conveying to people in Morocco and in Saudi Arabian and elsewhere in the world, not because they were trying to do good in the world what the their basic logic. And this is what the the information revolution has done. That is the rise of satellite television. The fact that it became so cheap. The fact that people could brought us out of Cottam reach everybody. Who speaks our bec- around the world that idea meant that what you trying to reach is everybody outside you own boundaries. Who speaks Arabic, and therefore what you looking for is that commonality what is it that's going to capture the imagination? It's no longer about trying to control the story. It's no longer about two to have people use the station for loyalty to the ruler. It's about how do I capture audience just for the sake of caps. Touring audience stick it away from someone else who may be critical of you. And at that time, people were fascinated by Israel, people did know allot about Israel. This is the time in the nineteen ninety s when post Oslo accords. There is a peace movement. There's talks and yet Israel was unknown to the Arbel villages, Euro-winter and normalized Israel. They had their own reporters out of Jerusalem. They're broadcasting live out of the Knesset. And yes, the you had all these are members that Necet who would say things about the on the prime minister of Israel, right there under, you know, the picture of Zionist fathers that no one could say that our world against on rulers and knots not certainly one who would go without punishment. And so in that regard. Yes, it did open up a lot. But here's the thing. That's that was not so much function of JIRA. It was a function of zero understanding. Wanted to see that at a time when they thought well, we might have to make peace with Israel as soon as that collapsed in two thousand and then you had the second intifada, and you had the violence, of course, people want to see what's happening to the Palestinians, and they covered that story and the two away all the audiences from JyP Shen television from Saudi television from local television. So anyway, the captured the market, but the captured the market because the end stood what people were looking for at that time, especially when those other television stations as you point out may have had an interest in downplaying shack the damage that was being done to Palestinians. Exactly because they worried that it would play against them that people say warrant you doing something about it. The opposition would use it. And they were frightened by that prospect. I wanna go back to one of the big questions about the Arab spring that you raise very early on. It seems like there was this narrative that prior to the spring public opinion. I didn't really matter that much because these were or Teheran regimes then there was the Arab spring all of a sudden Arab leaders and everybody else had to listen to Arab public opinion. First of all is that narrative, accurate, and Secondly wears it. Now, given what's happened with the Arab spring? Well, she's going to another interesting question I've written about it as well..
