MK Yifat Shasha-Biton, first Likud lawmaker to defect to New Hope

"First we have a matter that we're following with alert interest. Great concern is part of an occasional series. We call the premise. Podcast ponders the politics of pentameter and the use of the bard to advance a canard last week. The chair of the knesset corona virus committee. He fought shasha beaten announced that she was leaving the likud to join the new right-wing. Hope party where she would become. Don't sars number to an announcement that right away added five seats to the tally. New hope was showing in early polls. Shasha beaten is a popular politician. Mostly because as the head of the corona committee she overturned government decisions to close pools and gyms and stores in schools and even though her decisions were themselves overturned right back again by the government people came to see her as a straight shooter and someone fighting for the people trying to get to work and pay their bills and maybe grab a little exercise if they can. And who doesn't like a truth to power rebel. Also most everything about josh abi tone is wonderful. She grew up in the development town of kiryat shmona the daughter of a nurse from morocco and moshe feed a guy born in iraq who built up a bus company. She had a phd before she was thirty was deputy mayor of kyoto before he was thirty five and was a college vice president forty. It's partly because shasha tone has so much going on that folks and the likud were furious mad when she announced that she was switching parties and they insisted that she resigned right away. Shasha beaten refused on the grounds that she had been elected in this term and she would serve out. There are practical issues in play each sitting. Mk gets government allocated campaign funds when they run for the successive knesset. So if on stays and she'll have one point seven million shekels to use for new hopes campaign but if she quits now she'll be replaced and some other likud member. We'll get that cash lee cooed transportation minister miri regev tweeted quote. You've thought shasha beaten if you have a drop of integrity left resign. Immediately from connecticut and return the mandate to the national camp which you took for a ride for your own benefit a disgrace and when shasha baton refused the likud petitions something called the knesset house committee basically a rules and procedures committee to declare shasha beaten a quote unquote deserter which status would allow them to strip her of her likud campaign funding at the very least anyway. The committee met a few days ago. And because by then blue and was on the outs with the likud they supported chechen tone and she remains in the knesset with her one point seven million shekels in election funding which is when this happened. Uzi they on a likud. Backbencher angry by the outcome of the committee meeting convinced that chechen beaten had not gotten the come up and she deserves asked to be recognized by the chair leaned into the microphone and said quote. I would like to give some free literary advice to get on the of shasha zones new party that it was for matters such as these that shakespeare wrote in fellow i believe and then diane went onto quote not on alternate translation. I think of rabbani ios warning at the end of act one in fellow look to her more if thou has is to see. She has deceived her father. And may the shot a mile invoked up via gumbo which couplet was met by pandemonium in the committee with shasha be tone saying the volume clement. Actually came on the la. I have heard low things. But i must say that. I have never heard things as low as this. At this point mikhail cutler launch a religious blue and white. Mk screened uzi. Why are you referring to shakespeare. Why not refer to the woman who strays and you'll at least be using our own sources. The woman who strays as a reference to the book of numbers by bar chapter five verses twelve through sixteen about what to do with a wife who acts on faithfully to which topic an entire track date of the tomlin. My second sota is devoted later. Uzi dayan said quote. Someone wrote me and said on your life man. What a sexist remark. if that's how it was perceived. I really apologize and quote. And i know what you're thinking. That's a lousy apology. If that's how it was perceived blah blah blah blah blah. But i'd like to think the best of who was married to my favorite zoologist environmentalists tamar. Diane i adore her and she's lately been. The person who by force of character and charm willed into existence. The amazing new natural history museum at tel aviv university which is among other things. A brilliant polemic for sustainability and there ain't no one more feminists then tomorrow diane uzi on also mostly diane's nephew and yours on geffen's cousin so there's that he thought shasha zone for her part. Classically accepted the apology. And the matter seem to be over but all week. I've been thinking that there was an opportunity. Missed here and i can't get it out of my mind. Would it have hurt chubby tone to respond rather than with. I have never heard things as low as this. By saying with catherine from the taming of the shrew my tongue will tell the anger of my heart or else my heart concealing it will break. Would it have hurt. Shasha beaten to insist with don john and much ado about nothing. Let me be that. I am and seek not to alter me. Would it have hurt. Shasha be tone to say with polonius in hamlet this above all to be true and it must follow as the night the day thou cancer not be false to any man. Am i asking too much from shasha tone. I think not because truly. Now is the winter of our discontent. Elections are nine but a week and a day after the ides of march. But i'll stop. I'll stop because who knows better than me. That truly brevity is the soul of wit and that this is a tale told by an idiot full of sound and fury signifying nothing. This is how safe. Because i am that idiot today.

"This is the story of a song that is in a way the story of this country in the spring of Nineteen, sixty-nine at a sidewalk cafe on Richmond Street tucked in from the corner of Dizengoff. Street in Tel Aviv a twenty four year old poet named Yakov or Janka wrote Blit met a twenty five year old musician and arranger named yet year Rosenbloom and the two men became friends the cafe was called California and the. Place, itself said something about the people who made a habit of spending their days especially, their long nights there. The first thing to know about Cafe California is what it wasn't just one hundred and twenty five meters up Dizengoff was a legendary Bohemian cafe called carseat. It had been in operation since nineteen, thirty five, and since then it was the place where you can find some of Jewish palestines and then Israel's greatest poets and writers. On Alterman and Lebron's Sean Ski. Lay. Goldberg.

Then that had lived a good deal of life. Netanyahu was born in nineteen twenty seven in the southwest corner of what is now Iran in a place called Abedin on the Persian Gulf just. Across the border from Bosra not far from Kuwait at six he was sent to board at Saint. Mary's a Jesuit School in Mumbai where you had an aunt, his parents abandoned. Persia. For India when he was twelve at sixteen and Nineteen, forty three, he lied about his age and joined the Royal Indo British Air Force in time after he trained to watch the Second World War wind down at twenty one he came to fight in Israel's war of independence and never left taking a job as an El Al pilot when he was decommissioned. It was with a few restless L. Buddies that Netanyahu opened cafe. California soon, it was filled with the city's young wannabe writers, directors and poets the people most eager to knock from their sinecures the city's old writers, directors, and poets who argued and held forth at carseat. Ab Thanh was a magnet for Bohemians and he came alive when he was with Bohemians, their company produced in him at once a sense of satisfaction. He had found his people but also a sense of restlessness eighty, nine ton was in constant search of his next Gig in nineteen sixty five he ran for Knesset advice of a friend who worked in PR he pledged that if he was elected, he would fly to Egypt to meet with General Nasser to seek peace after he failed to win a seat in parliament, he anyway bought a nineteen twenty seven steer.

Israel swears in new Netanyahu led Government

"And said the spread of covert nineteen is inevitable after three deadlocked in divisive elections a year and a half of political paralysis and another three day delay because of political infighting in his Likud party prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu finally swore in his new government on Sunday. The Knesset Parliament Pasta. Vote of confidence. In Netanyahu's new administration to end over five hundred days of upheaval over the weekend both Netanyahu and his rival and partner. Benny Ganz announced their appointments for the new government. The most bloated in Israeli history with an expected thirty six cabinet ministers and sixteen deputies Netanyahu against a former military chief announce last month they would be putting their differences aside to join forces to steer the country through the corona virus crisis and its severe economic fallout. They're controversial power-sharing deal calls for Netanyahu to serve as prime minister for the government's first eighteen months before being replaced by Ganz for the next eighteen months despite the criticism. Ganz argued that teaming with Netanyahu offered the country it's only way out of the prolonged stalemate and prevented what would have been a fourth costly election in just over a year. The new position is supposed to enjoy all the trappings of the prime minister including an official residence and kief Netanyahu an exemption from a law that requires public officials who are not prime minister to resign if charged with a crime. Netanyahu has been indicted on charges of fraud breach of trust and accepting bribes in a series of scandals involving allegedly trading favors with wealthy media moguls. He denies any wrongdoing and blames. The charges on media orchestrated plot to oust him. Netanyahu also pledged to push forth with controversial plans to annex parts of the West Bank. Netanyahu's nationalist base is eager to push for annexation before the US elections in November

Israel starts surveilling virus carriers, sends 400 who were nearby to isolation

"Take me back to last Wednesday when four hundred. Some Israelis got a text message on their phones. What did it say basically the you may already be infected with the corona virus. This was a brand new program that Benjamin Netanyahu had asked for and got permission to implement in which the State Security Service was allowed to use its digital surveillance systems in the service of viral tracking. Basically they were able to go through the phones. Presumably of every Israeli see where they had been in the previous few weeks overlay that onto where they knew certain cove in nineteen positive cases that Ben and extrapolated who might be at risk of having been infected. Those four hundred people were all notified that they were on that list and we're told to begin self isolation immediately well it's an attention grabber strictly from epidemiological perspective would seem to make some sense who is in proximity of someone known to be infected elsewhere. Public health officials are using more laborious analog way through interviews and so on but this nonetheless has been criticized. Why did did raise it media. Objections from privacy advocates. No one gave consent for this kind of monitoring. So Israelis are trying to decide whether the cost is worth the benefit even those people who were notified of the few that we talked to found it very creepy without a doubt but we're also quite aware of the benefits of being able to track the virus. There is also a question I gather of really how much security because this thing is not all that precise a tool. Yeah that's right there. There's not a lot known about exactly what the government is doing here. And there's a lot of elements to Israel's intelligence service generally and specifically its digital capabilities. That just aren't known as you say when it's just a matter of my Cell Phone Ping the cell tower somewhere in Tel Aviv. At a certain time of day where a known corona virus patient was also picking tower. There's not a lot of precision there. You're still talking about dozens of square miles of territory and at a recommended distance transmission for this virus of six feet. What's not known? Or what other intelligence digital surveillance capabilities. The Security Agency might be bringing to bear. Its suspected that Israel has ways of sorting a lot of material. That's more precise than that. We don't know exactly what they're using so All by itself it's low resolution tool but maybe something else from the Security State toolkit is enhancing the image. That's right there's been other reporting including by the New York Times that the government is bringing to bear other more sophisticated intelligence apparatus. Here you mentioned concern from privacy advocates does their voice matter in Israel in March of twenty twenty are. They drowned out by other voices. Well there's so much going on here not just the pandemic but also an ongoing political crisis where Israelis are beginning to question some very long held beliefs about the soundness of their democracy. I think as in countries all over the world prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu here is pushing the boundaries of government power. Is He addresses this crisis. Some of those concerns seem to have as much to do with endangered political power as they do responding to the pandemic for example his handpicked Justice Minister early on in the crisis cancelled pretty much all judicial proceedings in the country. Two days before Netanyahu's own trial on corruption was scheduled to begin. I don't think many people here thought it was a coincidence. It is kind of hard now to imagine Normally function court system. Nothing else is operating as normal plenty of democracy advocates. Feel like it's just one of Midi our grabs that he has instituted in the name of fighting the corona virus including the restrictions on parliamentary activity. That serve his 'cause well now that his faction no longer has the majority and there's a lot of concern that He's willing to go a lot further. He's desperate to hang onto power. He's proven willing to incite against the justice system against the Arab minority against anyone who opposes his ability to maintain power as he flips. Forward as sort of the essential person the only one as his supporters will say who can help Israel get through this pandemic so you have an authoritarian leaning prime minister struggling for power and his own personal liberty as a matter of fact neutering the parliament historian. Yuval Noah. Harari has said that's just tantamount dictatorship just today former president of the Israeli Supreme Court said that the speaker of the Knesset refusal to adhere to a High Court ruling that he must allow vote. That would likely take. His own job is rocking the foundations of democracy in Israel. It's hard to overstate the triple sense of crisis in this country. I think Israelis are wondering exactly how they're going to get out of this.

Israel: third time lucky?

"There is possibly good news. At least four Israeli voters wearied of the regular trudge to the polling stations. They might not be obliged to vote for the fourth time in a year or so. This week's general election the third in eleven months appears to have been slightly more decisive than its two predecessors while nobody has an outright majority in the Knesset Prime Minister. Benjamin Netanyahu's conservative block on not far short of one failure to assemble a governing. Coalition from here would require rancor and chaos remarkable even by the standards of Israeli politics. This is also obviously provisionally. Good news for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu inasmuch as it looks like Benjamin Netanyahu will get to carry on being Israel's prime minister a job. He has already done longer than anyone else. In the country's history Netanyahu's Likud party won more votes than in September or in April last year. And turnout was actually up on the last couple of elections as for the bad news. There's a fair bit to go round breaking news to bring to Israel's attorney. General has indicted the prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu on multiple corruption charges varies the extremely imminent potential political and legal complication of a serving prime minister standing trial as things stand. Netanyahu is due before the beak in Jerusalem on March seventeenth to begin answering charges of fraud. Bribery and breach of trust go tonight. We are witnessing an attempted. Coup against a serving prime minister based on fabrications and a tainted biased investigative process in this tainted process. They weren't after the truth. They were after me. The investigators didn't pressure the witnesses. To tell the truth they crush them with threatening extortion to tell a lie above sutan biscuit. W meme Sheku. He may apply for a delay citing the imperative of forming a new government. But even if he gets one it likely won't be for long. Israel's judiciary is not known for its difference to politicians within the last decade one former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and one former president Mashi Katzav have served prison sentences after being convicted of various offenses. There appears to be also the further recession of any possibility anytime soon of a meaningful peace agreement with Israel Palestinian neighbors notwithstanding the diligent labours of US president. Donald Trump's son-in-law for a moment imagine a new reality in the Middle East imagine a bustling commercial and tourist centre in Gaza in the West Bank for international businesses. Come together and thrive whose vision for the region unveiled earlier. This year seems already to be regarded by all concerned as a sort of high-spirited indiscretion which everyone has agreed. It is best to discreetly. Forget the name of the Momma Nittany Univer me and my whole name but flew up naming the name today. I am announcing to apply with the formation of the next government Israeli sovereignty on the Jordan Valley and the northern dancy. Manila Netanyahu's latest election campaign. Bet Big on further Israeli expansion into the West Bank days before polls opened. He announced his intention to assume a plan. Long buried by international condemnation for three and a half thousand new settlers homes which would effectively connect the West Bank settlement of Malaya Dem- with Jerusalem. He may now also feel emboldened to act on previous threats to formally annex portions of Palestinian land and it is obviously a grim result for Israeli opposition to Benjamin Netanyahu and its present principal figurehead retired general and foam Israel. Defense Forces. Chief. Bennigan's is I told you one year ago I into politics because I feel for our internal unit reach prevail over every enemy time and time again by sticking together was being torn apart if an opposition cannot in three quick fire attempts finish off a tired belligerent and entitled Prime Minister Facing Serious Criminal charges a long and unflinching look in the mirror is probably overdue ahead of Netanyahu now lies the horse. Trading arm twisting and carrot dangling necessary to get his block from the fifty eight Knesset seats. It has to the sixty one. It needs to govern. He will probably find this possible. Even Benny Ganz has conceded that neither he nor anyone else in Israel fancies yet another trip to the polls indeed. It's not altogether impossible. That members of Gansters Liberal Cavan alliance or even Gansu himself may perceive long-term mileage in being seen to prioritize ability and agree to Netanyahu up in the short term in the immediate aftermath of this latest election defeat dance failed to reiterate his previous ironclad objection to serving a prime minister under indictment. However vidor Lieberman leader of the nationalist Yisrael Beiteinu party remains the potentially crucial kingmaker. And though he also says he doesn't want another election he doesn't want Netanyahu either Another possibly significant Straw in the wind a strong showing for the joint list an alliance principally representing Israel's Arab citizens the joint list.

By Netanyahu's bellicose and nationalistic conservatism. Demagogues and populists often accidentally contrived to energize their opponents and catalyze new kinds of opposition.

Netanyahu's future still uncertain after Israeli election

"Let's turn to Israel. This week is rarely voters went to the polls for the third time in a year. Yes a year So first of all of the results that ninety percent in the last time I checked prime minister bb. Netanyahu was winning and projected to win fifty nine seats in. Israel's parliament the Knesset so that's good news for bb because he's five or six seats ahead of any guns from the blue and white party whose his chief rival but it still not be enough to end this electoral purgatory citizens. And here's why so. Israel's system is not like ours. You don't win the election. And then you're in charge. You have to build a coalition that controls sixty one of the one hundred twenty seats in the Israeli Knesset in the last two elections and Netanyahu Angolans have failed in that coalition building task So now they're gonNA try again. Ben Is pretty depressing. That voters didn't care about the fact that Netanyahu is going to stand trial in a few weeks on corruption charges in fact. Bb has gained votes since the September elections so cool. It's also depressing for those of us. Who WANT A two states solution in Israel because both candidates out there talking about annexing the West Bank? Interestingly an alliance of Arab voters did well in selection and They're now the third biggest party in Israel. So That's interesting chaining dynamic but you know in the near future. I think a lot of people worried that Israel is careening towards a constitutional crisis or even a fourth election because bb is about to stand trial and will likely demagogue and say fake news and say it's a witch hunt to get him just like trump because they're the same person. Yeah and I feel like we've had the same conversation now. Three times And this question will be. Can he can form a coalition get to sixty votes He may need the help of avenue or Lieberman Israeli politician. Who's kind of become quite An ENEMY OF BBC. At least in in that case you know we could return to one of the formulas that we talked about in the fall. Some form of unity government or agreement where they rotate as prime minister's all this is pretty bleak because Israel can't break this logjam. Bbc poising their politics with increasingly extremist positions. You know we've evolved in the third election. All the way to the fish in the West Bank Each election it kind of gets worse in terms of BB's platform on the Palestinians It speaks Not just the polarization in Israeli society in that. Bbc has kind of a big media apparatus and demagogues the opposition. But also you know Benny. Gones is just not a good politician. You know for those who don't follow as closely like you know he's a former military guy kind of the centrist who could be a you know a safe space for a bunch of different parties but political talent like he he he didn't wasn't a natural communicator. And I think the only way for the CENTRE-LEFT WE'VE IN THE CENTER. I guess in Israel to really break through is that they're going to need someone with more political chops at some point. They're going to need a leader or you know grassroots movement combined with lear that they can overcome bb's support which is not a majority of the country but is a strong minority in enough to kind of hold the line here in prevents someone else like. Gods from winning so You know we could be headed towards a messy coalition politics in some bizarre unity government Tumbled over whether these indictments against bb go forward. In any event. I think the situation with the Palestinians is very grim And is really politics until bb can finally exit stage right here. And hopefully the center of the centre-left can get stronger leader. We're going to be kind of stuck in this place. Maybe they can borrow one of our. Amer candidates primary speaking of which Last week we talked about Bernie Sanders decision to skip the APEC conference. The Big Pro Israel lobby conference so At that that this weekend the Israeli ambassador to the UN Danny Danon said we don't want Sanders APEC. We don't want him in Israel. Anyone who calls our prime minister a racist either a liar. Ignorant fool or both which is very charming The CEO of a pack hard core also obliquely accused sanders of demonizing Israel. Nate that gave Mike Pence a platform to smear Bernie into Democrats side. Israel's enemies so it was nice of these folks to almost immediately prove that Bernie's fishing was a wise one. And I would suggest everyone listening that if you want a vibrant democratic Israel Checkout Jay Street. Yeah Yeah it to me. The the biggest problem here right is the the massive red carpet that they roll out every time for bb and his biggest goons and for like pants and Mike Pompeo and these guys and then you know they they have some democratic members of Congress. We've always gone to a pack. And they they try to claim. This broad bipartisan view of things. This is not on the level here. You know APEC wants to be able to put the bipartisan stamp of approval on itself while relentlessly over the last several years. Supporting the agenda of the Likud party in Israel and the Republican Party in the United States relentlessly attacking Barack Obama. Frankly putting us in this shitty situation that we're in where we pulled out of the Iran nuclear agreement so actively harming US interests with the end of the Iran nuclear agreement and then complaining that people don't show up at their conference. I mean come on guys like And then you know dunking on everybody because a bunch of other candidates like send videos like the. I hate to break it to you. The people send videos to a lot of things. Right also is a racist. I mean he's he's says racist things on the regular choice last laws that devalues human beings who happen to be Arab. Yeah yeah I mean and and every election we get this rhetoric about the Arabs voting is in an inherently bad when they are citizens of Israel. You know so Like I I'm I'm kind of you. Know over this debate We'll keep watching the election

Israel: Benjamin Netanyahu defeats Gantz, but is still short a majority

"We start with the reporting out of Israel the third election in as many tries looks according to the headlines to have given baby Netanyahu returned to power bot because the Israeli system is unusual to me I hesitate Malcolm a very good evening to you the news says that prime minister Netanyahu claimed victory the news indicates that his coalition has sixty seats which is enough for a majority in the Knesset given that the opposition does not have sixty has somewhat less than sixty in addition the news says that Netanyahu's vote count increased seventy one percent over well it's not quite seventy in the last term and that there was a larger vote turnout and excited voter turnout that tends to be an endorsement so I'm going to hold back until you bless this good evening to Malcolm good evening this is not going to be one of those thirty second explanations because it's much more complicated than what you said is right the turnout was larger but the outcome is still unclear it seems that the latest consensus polls is that the right wing coalition led by Netanyahu has a total of fifty nine seats there are a hundred twenty seats altogether when you need sixty one that majority and to be automatically mandated or given preference to form the government it's up to the president but now to look at the results and then to make a decision about which party can be asked to form a government based on assumptions or me the recommendations I should say from the different parties about which wich leader they would back so it's a combination of parties given Netanyahu sixty seats or fifty nine as backing and let's go to the left wing coalition led by blue and white then he would most likely give the mandate although it's complicated because Netanyahu on March seventeenth faces the opening of the trial and it's not clear if the president will give it to somebody under indictment or whether they will ask for differently could leader but the numbers themselves have very because you still have the army both have other outstanding votes that have to come in and the initial numbers role based on exit polls and the initial results and you're the one who told me a long time ago the first and second as stories are are wrong so the that right now it looks like the consensus of all the polls is that he has fifty nine and it depends on where some of the other parties like Lieberman's party is estimated between seven and eight it may not sound like a big difference with that seat can account to a lot of difference in the collision the Arab bloc god by consensus I think fifteen seats which is very large and it was a big turn out in the Arab votes some say it was an anti trump vote some say it was just that they were motivated I had to turn out so right now it looks like it's fifty nine for the right they're still fight over the extra seat the problem even if the S. sixty votes is that he will have an opposition of sixty votes so every time he has a bill to pass any one member of this coalition can hold it hostage because they say they'll vote with the opposition or they're all staying and he won't be able to pass legislation so they always look to make a coalition of at least sixty five seventy seats so you have a question that no one party can hold him a hunt or hold any prime minister a hostage on the results so while people predicted a very low turn out that was not the case Israelis are not fatigue they value the election process very much I think it would be very disappointed to them if they have to go to a fourth election because there's no clear outcome or in that not enough of an outcome to give a clear mandate I think every effort will be made to make this the this time at work even if it's a minority government they can still function in this been true in the past we in the United States don't know that that don't have any parallel to that is it's a one party did not get the majority of the votes but in the list systems that are in Europe and in Israel it's the case since you you had the the party of the right to didn't get enough seats all their votes if you don't get three and a quarter percent of the votes are lost and those votes had they been given to the could would have put them over the top so we'll have to be a little bit more patient about the outcome that canal did indeed declare victory because his party because it was the number one in at a party in votes and and the seats in the Knesset but the key element now is who can form a government and put together enough votes to have some sort of a viable chance to legislate and to assisting the government

"The trump brings out this peace plan yesterday is this plan is effectively very simple basically get knowledges realities on the ground that's what this from Middle East peace plan is that what you're hearing from the media today is that trump has changed the game in the Middle East that from his abandon prospects for peace when what to wear is about this is the prospects for peace have stopped all wounds the reason they have stock always in the Middle East is because you have one side that would like to white the other side off of the map now a lot of prospects for peace over there in order to understand the Middle East conflict what you have to understand is one very simple truth Israel has accepted every piece offer that has ever been put in front of it and every single piece offer has been rejected by the Palestinians and the Arab world generally back in nineteen seventeen when the ball for declaration was first promulgated that said there would be Jewish national home in Palestine meeting now will be Jordan as well as Israel when that was first put out there the Jews immediately accepted the herbs turned it down and when people talk about this vast territory for the Jews get let let's be real about this there's some fifty eight Arab and Muslim countries on planet earth Arab or Muslim countries on planet earth all the Arab countries are all Muslim country there is one Jewish state I'm plant earth it is tiny Israel is something like fifteen thousand square miles is extraordinarily small Israel is half the size of New Jersey in a region that is extraordinarily large so the idea of a Jewish national home there not only is not any sort of giant cram down on the on the Arab population it is eight eight eight tiny percentage of the total land mass in the area and of course Jews have never stop living there there is a historic Jewish tie to the land of Israel but the reason I'm going back in history is you need to understand why it is the pieces never happen there and then because of the Jews okay so the Jews were originally told by the British Mandate by the British they're going to get Jordan as well as Israel okay then sliced off Jordan then they slice off half of Israel are they sliced away most of today and Samaria they sliced away half of Jerusalem it's like the way the Gaza Strip and then did you accepted that you like okay the U. N. says that Israel can be a state jurors will be an open international city right under the tutelage of the west right will not be in fact owned by the Jews are owned by the Arabs will be under the tutelage of the United Nations whatever is real touch that deal except it right granted an indefensible rum state in the borders in nineteen forty seven Israel accepted and the Arabs rejected has been termed by people living in Israel be out of its borders because they're completely indefensible completely understand how small Israel is you have to understand the borders before nineteen sixty seven included an area of Israel that is nine miles wide okay the distance from our office to the Santa Monica beach and that is the distance and and without traffic okay for without traffic you can travel the with of Israel with a bit of the state of Israel you can travel that without traffic in four in forty seven forty at worst you can travel that in under fifteen minutes and that is the worst in the entire country in that particular area if you've never been is really don't understand the geography you don't actually understand what's going on and understand how closely everything is packed together okay so Israel accepts that and the Arabs rejected and they declare war the Saudis the Jordanians the Egyptians the Syrians they all declare war on this new state the British were very much afraid of taking off the air is because they didn't want to drive the Arabs in the arms of the chair of the Soviet Union they refuse to allow Jews to emigrate to British Mandate Palestine so during the world during World War two as the Holocaust is happening the British mandated preventing Jews from moving in specifically because they don't want to take off the Arabs in the area the Jews largely go along with that Ben Gurion largely goes along with that in the interest of venture we getting state the state is finally granted by the United Nations and once that happens the user like okay fine I guess we'll just accept it okay if I like okay good at least we have a place to go at least now there is a Jewish national home and everything now okay this is when all of Japan's Maria Andrews wasn't international control and the Gaza Strip all of that is delegated to the Arabs who had pre sixty seven borders and say no and they want you in an isolation attack on the state of Israel and Israel fights back in the early stages of that of that war Arabs are urged by the Arab leadership to flee the area specifically because they're supposed to get out of the way of the onrushing Arab armies are gonna come in and crush the Jews and so they they're so hundred thousand Palestinian Arabs for living in the in the British Mandate Palestine in the Jewish area of what will be the the Israeli state of Palestine the the Israeli area Palestine hundred thousand arms fully he then as the war progresses it turns out that a lot of the Arab villages are actually if columns operating on behalf of the Arab armies which is exactly what you would expect because this is an ethnic conflict Hey the the Arabs are using these as bases of attack against the Jews they're cutting off supply lines supply rolled and the and the Israelis put in place some called operation dollar which says we are not going to lock down our tiny army in guarding these villages that are effectively in many cases a fifth column instead we're going to tell people that they need to leave these villages and move over to the Arab side okay now remember when the state of Israel was declared the state of Israel declaration of independence urges the Arab citizens to stay to stay here be part of the part of the work that we are doing be part of the state Ben Gurion didn't understand why the Arabs are fleeing using you can live here what's the problem she's lived as minority in Arab countries for thousands of years why exactly should there not be one Jewish state where Arabs are a minority and the assumption on the part of the Israeli leadership is that as all the Jews flowed into Israel from the other Arab countries and from Europe that that would become minority population more minority population their population okay sell people flee and then the Israeli army in the second wave is fighting these battles in in the middle of war there's always population term well people always leave to get out of the way I'm on rushing battles and the Israeli army can't afford to be locked down pin down transitive van insurgent campaigns in certain villages into the clear the population out okay so after the war ends there now something like for it anywhere from four hundred to seven hundred thousand Palestinian refugees at the same exact time nearly the same number of Jews are expelled from Arab countries around the region of ever talk about this right like the reason that there's so many Moroccan Jews who live in Israel the reason there's so many Iranian Jews living in Israel the reason there's so many Syrian Jews living in Israel is because at the time of the Israeli sounding seven hundred thousand Jews were expelled from the surrounding Arab countries and Israel took all of them in all of them it'll take all of them and with no international help he normally the U. N. helped fund the placement of refugees in new places no help at all Israel takes all of them in the Arab states instead of absorbing these populations into the general population decides that they're going to keep these populations refugees so the first movie is we are not going to actually allow them to return to the state of Israel when I can allow them to move back to division because that would be acknowledging that we lost the war and that they would have to then be Israeli citizens then very quickly within about a year the Arab leadership says you know great if we could infiltrate the state of Israel with a bunch of people who are on our side one of his state of Israel destroyed at that point the Israelis like well guess what we are not letting people in back into the state when they fled their homes were not letting them back in just to stand in favor of the destruction of the state is not never in human history has been the obligation of a of a state that was declared war on by its surrounding population to take in large numbers of members of people who are trying to destroy the state from within that has never been anything okay in in the aftermath of everywhere they're refugees the idea of resettlement of the refugees back in their original homes has never really been a thing either in fact is in the aftermath of World War two there were huge population transfers all over Europe they're in the aftermath of the of the declaration of the division of Pakistan and India there were tens of millions of people who are refugees and they were taken in by their countries and they did is that Indians live in India and Muslims live in Pakistan and the specific area where there is no separation cashmere has been a hot spot ever since but there's never been any call for less sixty years for all of the Indians were expelled from Pakistan and left Pakistan to have their original homes back in Pakistan right is never been negotiation point the Palestinians then are used as a tool by the Arab world to club Israel into submission and their use as an excuse to claim that Israel ought to be is right this is the so called right of return it's a great book on this at recommended yesterday called the war for turn by a couple of the leftist Israelis one was a former labor MK member of Knesset and one of them is journalist hearts okay so I'm just explaining history because it you're not going to stand from fees plan until you understand okay so there's never been anything internationally that says the Jews cannot live in Judean Samaria it's a ridiculous suggestion the notion that it is somehow a violation of international law for the Jews who won a defensive war in nineteen forty to settle in the areas they want is upset it's absurd okay in nineteen sixty four the Arabs still have yes merry on Gaza Egypt is in the Gaza Strip but has not an exit specifically because it does not actually want the Palestinian population absorbed into the Egyptian population density area have not been annexed by Jordan right they've not been technically annexed by Jordan for the exact same reason but Jordan is ruling intraday and Samaria Hey this is a so the notion that Israel was always ruling all of these errors all is just not historically true the Palestine Liberation Organization which is Yasser Arafat's organization now the Palestinian authority which rules the Palestinian areas in the west bank an area act the Palestinian authority effectively is founded in nineteen sixty four now you might notice something on the time line here nineteen sixty four is before nineteen sixty seven in nineteen sixty four the Arabs are talking about the liberation of Palestine at that point Jerusalem is split the Jordanians are in control of the old city of Jerusalem they've banned all Jews mentoring the old city of Jerusalem they discriminate against Christians in the old city of Jerusalem they build barbed wire fences around Jerusalem Hey they already control Judea and Samaria Egypt controls the Gaza Strip and yet there's something called the Palestine Liberation Organization weird what exactly are they seeking to liberate make very clear in their charter what exactly they're seeking to liberate every square inch of territory between the Jordan River in the Mediterranean Sea in other words the murder of every Jew in that region and the ethnic cleansing of Jews from that region a second Holocaust get a made this clear since nineteen sixty four in the nineteen sixty seven war happens and all the Arab countries under the leadership of NASA in Egypt decide to mobilize against the Israelis they decide they're going to want to second war every time shin against the Israelis and the Israelis get wind of this and the Israelis

"Coming up on the news a trump reportedly oppressed Ukraine leader for damaging information on Biden Netanyahu in desperate battle for political survival after Paul whole blow and United States sending troops to bolster Saudi defenses after attack. It's Saturday deign September twenty one. I'm Anthony Davis Donald Trump lashed ashed back at his critics today as questions swirled in the latest scandal to hit his White House and he's targeted Joe Biden called for a congressional investigation of an overwhelming abuse of power. Nothing was said that was in any way wrong from said of a phone call with Vladimir Alinsky in which according to the Wall Street Journal the President Asked about eight times that the Ukrainian leader investigate Biden's son Biden is the front runner for the Democratic presidential nomination he son Hunter was on the board of Ukrainian Gas Company while his father was vice president trump already faces impeachment inquiries but the Ukraine coal is reported it to be related to an intelligence community whistleblower complaint about the president's behavior which is the subject of a standoff between the White House and Congress Trump Insulin ski spoke on July Twenty fifth about a month later. It was reported that two hundred and fifty million dollars in military assistance to a country fighting Russian backed separatists was being delayed after trump requested a review Israel's president is set to begin two days of consultations with political parties after a deadlocked election last week plunged the country into uncertainty over who will lead the next government near final results from Tuesday's poll showed the opposition chief Benny Ganz marginally ahead of the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with blue and white party taking thirty three seats out of the parliament's one hundred twenty the ruling Likud party has thirty one critically critically. Neither side appeared able to forge a majority government even with support from allies in smaller parties tomorrow often in President Reuven Rivlin. We'll meet both leaders in an attempt to break the stalemate or face the possibility of a potential third round of elections in less than a year. Rivlin holds holds a largely ceremonial post but he's also responsible for choosing the candidate. He believes has the best chance of forming a government. Usually the decision is clear and often goes to the leader of the largest party but the muddied result has created an impasse despite being Israel's longest serving leader and having a reputation for a political sorcery. Netanyahu is fighting a tough battle on Thursday. He acknowledged his election plan had failed in two weeks time he he will face pretrial hearings for three corruption cases against him a majority in the Knesset could give Netanyahu who denies any wrongdoing immunity immunity from prosecution. Donald Trump yesterday approved sending American troops oops to bolster Saudi Arabia's air and missile defenses after the largest ever attack on the kingdom's oil facilities which Washington has squarely blamed blamed on Iran the Pentagon said the deployment would involve a moderate number of troops numbering thousands and would be primarily defensive in nature it it also detailed plans to expedite delivery of military equipment to both Saudi Arabia and the UAE trump said earlier on Friday that he believed his military military restraint so far showed strength and the instead imposed another round of economic sanctions on Tehran but the deployment could further aggravate Iran which which has responded to previous US troop deployments this year with apprehension denies responsibility for the attack on Saudi Arabia in May. Hey the trump administration issued an emergency declaration to push through an eight point one billion dollar arms deal to Saudi Arabia the United Arab Emirates and Jordan without congressional approval proponents of the deal contended that a fresh supply of weapons was necessary to counter mounting Iranian aggression Russian that threatened to destabilize the region and put US security interests at risk.

Climate Strike protests hit cities across the world.

"Coming up on the news a millions take to the streets is climate strike protests hit cities across the world. US Administration blocks urgent whistle. Oh blow disclosure and Israel's Arabs could lead parliamentary opposition. It's Friday September twenty. I'm Anthony Davis millions of people people are demonstrating to demand action on climate change in scores of cities around the world including hotbeds of the environmental movement such as London in New York San Francisco and Seattle many groups are involved in organizing the strikes including schoolchildren trade unions environmental groups and employees at large tech companies such as Amazon and Google and that demands are all similar reducing the use of fossil fuels to try to halt also climate change Australia saw some of the first protests kickoff this morning with organizers estimating that upwards of three hundred thousand students and workers carr's filled the streets of Melbourne Sydney and other cities in the biggest protests. The country has seen in years. New Delhi India one of the world's most polluted titties so dozens of students environmental activists chant we want climate action while hundreds marched in Thailand's capital Bangkok before staging a die in outside the Ministry of Natural Resources in London thousands of people from infants to grandparent's blocked traffic outside outside the houses of parliament chanting save our planet crowds had gathered in European capitals including Berlin and Warsaw African capitals pedals such as Nairobi Kenya while organizers say there are some eight hundred events planned to take place in the US later New York City's one point one million in public school students were told they were allowed to skip class to attend protests a coalition of environmental groups youth organisations unions is an otherwise using the Hashtag strike with us have demanded passage of a green new deal demonstrations at times to nearly coincided with Monday's Sundays. UN Climate Summit in New York where United Nations Secretary General Antonio Gutierrez has said he wants to see governments and business pledged to abandon fossil fossil fuels. We are losing the fight against climate change. He said at a news conference on Wednesday Fridays for future began as a weekly demonstration in by Swedish teenager Greta Tune Berg in August last year but has since spread to more than one hundred and fifty countries miss tune. Berg leads the charge and we'll speak the south to noon at the strike in New York. The action comes at a time when scientists discovered North America has lost twenty nine percent of its birds since since one thousand nine hundred seventy commuter is still reeling from Hurricane Humbert. Oh and the city of Houston is recovering from tropical depression. Imelda severe rains and flash flooding only two years after Hurricane Harvey for thousands of student protesters around the world. The fate of the planet is a serious business. The trump administration plunged into an extraordinary showdown with Congress of access to a whistle blowers complaints about reported incidents including a private conversation between President Donald Trump and a foreign leader the blocked complaint a serious and urgent the government's intelligence watchdog said the inspector general appeared before the House intelligence committee behind closed doors yesterday but declined under administration orders to reveal to members the substance of the complaint the standoff raises fresh questions about the extent to which trump's allies are protecting the Republican president from oversight and specifically if he's acting director of National Intelligence Joseph Maguire is working with the Justice Justice Department to shield the president from the reach of Congress trump though giving no details about any incident denied that he would ever say something inappropriate appropriate on such a phone call representative Adam Schiff the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee said he was prepared to go to court to try to force the trump administration and to open up about the complaint. The inspector general has said this cannot wait said Schiff describing the administration's blockade as an unprecedented departure gotcha from law. There's an urgency here that I think the courts will recognize. He said because the administration is claiming. The information is privileged shifts said he he believes the whistle. Blowers complaint likely involves the president or people around him. Donald Trump in a series of tweets has denied everything. Israel's Arab parties set to be the largest non ruling blocking parliament and and could even lead the opposition. If a national unity government emerges from Tuesday's election a surge in turn out gave the arab-dominated joint list thirteen of the Knesset's one hundred twenty seats making it the third largest grouping behind Benjamin Netanyahu's right-wing Likud party with thirty one seats and Benny Ganz is centrist blue and whites with thirty three that would make the joint list the largest opposition grouping in parliament. If a unity government government take shape a realistic possibility even though Ganz rebuffed Netanyahu's initial invitation no party drawn from the twenty one percent Arab Arab minority has ever been part of an Israeli government this would provide a platform to voice Arab complaints of discrimination against them and give a big platform formed Arab parties that differ with parties drawn from the country's Jewish majority.

Second Israeli Election Shows No Clear Winner

"Results for the country's country's second election in six months which took place yesterday so far show no signs of a clear winner current Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yeah who off the Lakers policians rival Ben Against of the century St- blue and white opposition party look to be neck and neck according to polls yesterday day Daniel Appellate join us to tell us where all this might be going. She's back today to continue to try and help us work. That's out one facing seems clear. It'll be going slowly so Daniele. What's the latest well the latest is that the the way the votes of lander is not that dissimilar to what happened in April once again? It seems that Abdul Lieberman will once again be the kingmaker in April he refuse to sit in government unless the ultra Orthodox were forced to serve in the army this perennial one of the perennial themes of Israeli politics takes and it looks like I think he has nine seats right now. It looks like he will be in a similar position. Logically you might look at the the way the numbers rack up because of cushion Israel doesn't matter who wins who becomes the largest party at Hugh can form a coalition you would think that Likud and the blue white posse could it's with another couple of centuries. Even Center left Parties Form Coalition. That seems very unlikely. I don't see Netanyahu agreeing to serve in a government l. From last he's prime minister similar leap any counts once the the top job but just how the numbers will work. How is really anybody's guess housing -nificant is this election results for the Middle East more widely what you think so well I guess it depends and how it turns out? I mean at the moment we have a stalemate clearly. If the coalition building process were to be a bit more radical and involve the Arab Israeli parties in the joint list it might look very different but there seems to be very little chance chance of that so one assumes that the coalition building process will be more or less business as usual we have a very similar story in Spain of course and it seems we get into this endless cycle of elections that are unable to break the empath Daniela. What does Benjamin Netanyahu's position look no? Let's remember that he called a snap election in April because he failed to form a coalition. What do you think he's thinking now? He's gamble did not pay off and various various tactics used to try and ensure that he would get a larger part of the vote for instances usual warnings about Arabs turning out now and the falsifying elections actually leads much higher our turnout in these elections rather desperate measures by saying that he was going to declare sovereignty over the settlements in the settlement blocks that in particular eight were either and his his colleagues in in Likud. I'm sure now a scenting weakness and thinking. How can we get rid of him? I'm actually play a part in in the next government but I think it raises a very good point which I think says quite low about the state of Israeli Moxie the moment we have the third largest party in the Knesset the the joint list the party or coalition which represents the political interest of a full twenty percent of the population and it's absolutely I quote absurd for Israeli politicians to think of forming a coalition elation ahead of the elections. Everyone ruled out. We've seen as loveable so that really says something about where we are in terms of representative democracy and the other thing that we can notice how where Israeli democracy has gone for the last ten fifteen years ten fifteen years ago I've seen and and what he described as far right his politics were seen as slightly outside the consensus and really extreme now is the centrist of the center on again the the guy who's going to be making the decisions and the election so the results will be will be clear hopefully later today. What what do you think about this final question for for you? Are we going to see another election anytime soon. Well it's very likely the next one what they won't be for before January or February and the joke going around. I'll say issue is really social. Media is that you know you get the day off the election in Israel and it's not gonna be beach weather. I think people are upset about that. Can I just add one thing I mean the shadow of US politics hangs very heavy over Israeli politics and clearly as long as donald trump is in the White House it's very difficult to see a big change there but of course there is an election in the US in just over a year towing worthy Democrats to win it with the progressive candidate. I think is really politics might start to look quite different degree Daniela well. I mean I think we we we look at Israel Palestine in exactly those terms from the occupation Palestinian dependence the problem is the incentive is internal Israeli politics. It really doesn't feature anymore. The majority of Israelis from right to left center Zantac think the occupation as a necessary eat rosary evil perhaps can be made a little bit better but do not see a solution with the sovereign in Palestine as the angle well.

"I mean, if that's the view you're gonna take a crime tape and wrap it around the entire Knesset and our congress, by the way in case fourth that listen to this Mickey Mouse stuff widely seen as the most serious against the premier. 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.

"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..
