Could This Be the End of Benjamin Netanyahu's Political Career?

"Of Benjamin Netanyahu beyond wise to strike him off, But it looks like a key Israeli opposition party has backed Unity government, excluding Mr Netanyahu, Man in question is the ultra nationalist leader Naftali Bennett, who announced that his party would join talks to form a governing coalition with the centrist Party leader Yah Lapid. Mr Netanyahu's reacted saying the proposed deal would weaken Israel. Oh, in ultimate is senior correspondent at the 24 news child in Tel Aviv and joins us now. Oh, and thanks for coming on I mean, most people if they know about Bennett, they'll know that he has more in common with Netanyahu, uh, with the anyone else s. So why is this happening now? And will it work? Do you think It's happening now. Because over the course of two years, Benjamin Netanyahu has lost more and more pieces of the Israeli right. And there are hundreds of thousands of Israelis who have gone to the polls again, most recently in our last elections and have said they are right wing, but they would rather have a government that is dominated by the center left then have Benjamin. It's now return to power. A number of political parties went to voters and said, You have two options. Option A Netanyahu staying in power Option B, a center left government even though you voter are right wing voter and hundreds of thousands of Israeli right wing voters opted for option B on so that basically led those parties to become a balance of power and then cooked up with the center left. And put themselves in a position on the cusp of ousting Israel's longest serving prime minister. Right. So you suggest that this has been going on for a while, anyway, a sort of Ah, drift or removed. But hasn't he been able to present himself as Mr Security? That's who he's always presented himself as we've heard his comments, saying, Who's going to look after the settlers? That kind of thing? Doesn't that count anymore? Accounts among the large spar thought that Israeli voters and again don't forget this coalition if it's formed, has a very narrow majority. And Netanyahu still in every single poll has a plurality of the votes when the public's asked who they want to be prime minister, But it's not enough. It's not enough for him to get a majority in the

Iran's top nuclear scientist killed

Iran's top nuclear scientist killed

"April 2018, the Israeli Prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, made a dramatic presentation in English of what he said was a huge Israeli intelligence hall. He said it proved that Iran had pursued a nuclear weapons program. On the stage. Behind him were shelves full of ring binders and dozens of CDs. Microphone in hand. He gave a lengthy power point presentation. At one point. He emphasized that one off the main Iranian nuclear scientists was a man called Mohsen Factory today. Key part of the plan was to form new organizations to continue the work. This is how Dr Muslim Fuck is a dead head of project about put it, remember that name Fuck is a day. So here's his director. That's right here. And he says the general aim is to announce the closure of project Ahmad. But then he adds special activities. You know what that is? Special activities will be carried out under the title of Scientific Know how developments. Remember that name, said Mr Netanyahu will on Friday. Most in factories today was killed by a gunman just outside Tehran. Iran has accused Israel of the assassination on the president has sent. Rouhani said that the killing of their top nuclear scientists will not slow down Iran's nuclear program. This is what Iran's foreign minister Javad Zarif, tweeted on Friday. Terrorists murdered an eminent Iranian scientist today, this cowardice with serious indications of an Israeli roll shows desperate warmongering of the perpetrators. Iran calls in the international community and especially the European Union. And their shameful double standards and condemn this act of state terror. Well, there's been no response so far from Israel. Let's speak to the BBC's chief International correspondent Lease Do Set, whose lives on the line from Saudi Arabia is Capital, Riyadh and in the region as a whole lease. Presumably people are still digesting this news and the significance of it. Adjusting and worrying about the news. I have to say, because the region divides along those who would firmly back this Alliance, If you like between Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu, the Saudi leadership on by the team of President Trump in regarding Iran is the main enemy in the region, and that would include the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, who recently signed Theo peace deals as they were called with the state of Israel, But countries like Iraq Lebanon. Syria, which have very close ties to Iran, one way or the other will be worried because what we've seen in the past when retaliation comes and it is certain to calm in some form at some time. It is often executed in the region through proxies. So I think the region as a whole is nervous. But they were nervous already because there is a growing sense in the region that this is being regarded but particularly by Israel and Saudi Arabia as a last moment to try to inflict crippling blows on Iran's nuclear program before the new team of President Biden enters the White House, talking about Joining the 2000 and 15 nuclear deal that President Trump pulled out of and has been trying to destroy ever since. If that retaliation is, as you say, certain to common, it will probably happen. In the region. When you look back at what Iran has done in the past, when faced with similar situations, what has it tended to do by way of retaliation? This is a very sensitive moment fraught with risk and Iran. Knows that everyone knows that and not not just in the region, but in many Western capitals as well. The If Iran retaliates now there is a risk and it knows it that there will be another retaliation and that the region could again be plunged into even greater attention. Just as a new administration takes takes pop power in Washington, and this will jeopardize what is already going to be a very, very difficult effort. Try to get a negotiating track underway between the United States and Iran and the other big powers who were involved in the 2000 and 15 nuclear deal. So it Zaveri dangerous because Iran summon Iran maybe thinking we must retaliate because many will remember that after the assassination of Awesome Sulamani almost a year ago. The remained scene is the main architect of of Iran's policies across the region. There was a retaliation but a limited one. It wasn't a to use a word that's often used a spectacular one. But Iran must be wondering now. Well, what will we do This time? Our honor is at stake. Our strategic interests are at stake, but they may also fear that they're being Baited If you like that, if they attack that will be a signal for an even greater escalation by its enemies in the region. It's very, very, very difficult balance now. And everyone knows that If the Israelis are behind this, what are they? What are they thinking about the possible consequences of it? Do you believe Benjamin Netanyahu has had one driving ambition. You heard him in 2000 and 18. I wasn't the only time he brought a big power point presentation to the world stage to warn the world about the evils of Iran but the evils of there not just a nuclear program but of weaponized dead nuclear program. It has to be said that Yah yah! YAH also investigated and believe that that program was shelved in 2000 and three. They also talked to the report about most in factories a day. But since then, Israel, Israeli and American intelligence have believed despite Iran's denials that that program is continuing, so I think I mean, I can't put myself in the shoes of Israeli intelligence, the Saudi leadership, but Regard the greatest danger as Iran. Anything else pales in comparison least Thank you very much. Indeed. At least two set in Riyadh some thoughts from my guests and Holly Dagres. I mentioned at the start of the program that you're Appearance today is timely. What's your take on this? Well, I think we need to look for a moment at that Power Point presentation and April 2018 after Netanyahu gave his power point to an audience of one that being President Donald Trump. Weeks later, he withdrew unilaterally from the Iran nuclear agreement and reimpose sanctions as part of his maximum pressure policy. We're now a little over two years into that maximum pressure policy, and it has proved to be a failure. It has neither changed the country's behavior nor trigger the regime's collapse in Iran. And so what's been happening here is that in the past couple of weeks U S President Donald Trump actually asked his national security team, at least after reports tell us and sought options to strike Iran over its nuclear program. And so while it was, he was dissuaded from a military strike. This possibly could have been one of the options that was floated to respond to the latest nuclear build up, which is that as part of The sanctions. Iran has decided for the past year it is going to it's going tol continue aspects or breach aspects of the nuclear court until these sanctions are removed. So essentially, this could very much be a last ditch effort by the Trump administration to tempt her on to retaliate. And scuttle any future diplomacy.

U. as well the BBC's bomber flight asa is attorney is now live from Jerusalem to give us the reaction that up over what are you hearing what difference will this make a guess it depends very much on which side of the fence you're hearing this news from yeah I think the response is it is what we would expect this decision was a victory for the prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and he prays did in this historic achievement he said it corrected and injustice its agencies the Jewish people had the right to live in the west bank and East Jerusalem because it was a historical homeland his opponent is political opponent Benny Gantz also welcomed the decision although some other Israeli lawmakers raised concerns that this would make of finding any sort of peace with the Palestinians even more remote and they certainly respond in that way the Palestinian officials denounced it they said that the US was not authorized to qualified to negate international law to give it legitimacy to Israeli settlements you also have some Palestinian militant groups weighing in saying this this mark to the effective end of the Oslo peace process and that the Palestinians should return to its strategy of resistance and as you mentioned the E. U. was against the move it condemned it said settlement building was illegal under international law and some democratic lawmakers also came out against the decision which does worry some Israelis because I feel it will deepen the partisan divide in the United States over Israel this is not a surprise because that you know the direction of travel full this US administration has been very much along these lines hasn't it we've seen to rescind recognizes it you know it is Israel's capital with the movement of the of the US embassy that we've had to Israel being kind of given the not over the Golan Heights as well this contest it's terra terra tree and and Mike Pompeii is saying well actually what way we've been the situation we've had on turned international law hasn't approaches piece so is there any arguments for this actually being a progressive move towards some kind of new future why isn't Mr put pay said that the state department had done a review of past US positions one of which was the initial one which found at settlements to be legal and then under Reagan they were found to be legitimate to now they decided the state department that they are not illegal although they didn't give any legal argument he didn't anyway to back that up you're right he he give more of a practical argument he said it hasn't worked this is a political problem that needs to be solved in direct negotiations rather than stymied by just disagreement over international resolutions but of course the result of that is that it will give the Israelis the upper hand because they are the stronger party and he referred specifically to Israeli courts settling this again which will not Sam get reassure Palestinians at all I mean it is consistent with the trump administration's approach the reports here that it was pushed by the US ambassador to Israel David Friedman Friedman who who's well known to support the settlement projects and the idea apparently was to raise the Obama legacy because just where he left off as he did not veto a U. N. security council resolution that said Israeli settlement activity was a flagrant violation of international law so where does this leave us I mean clearly nobody wants of the violence to escalate but you're given what you've just been telling us from both sides that seems like an inevitability sadly well what could happen is it could boost the drive for settlements and and and perhaps also for an exhortation of the settlements because that is something that Mr Netanyahu's constituency support so could give a green light to what is already happening in terms of settlement construction and planning and that was sharply increasing since president trump took office in terms of the Palestinian response aren't we may see protests possibly there was a pretty muted response to Mr trump's decision to recognize the that the Jerusalem was Israel's capital and I've asked about that and I'm told that people just don't feel if they go to the street will change anything it doesn't mean they accept it over thank you thank you seize upon our plight awesome joining us live from Jerusalem

"Israel will hold new elections in September after Benjamin Netanyahu failed to form a coalition in parliament.

So he had ninety days since the April elections to cobble together a coalition his Likud party, only one thirty five seats to form a government, you need at least sixty one or at least a form of stable, government, you need at least sixty one and it's pretty common for these coalition negotiations to go down to the wire, but over the, the last few days, it became clear that he was at a major impasse with his former defense minister, AVI jor Lieberman, who heads. Secular small secular party with the large Russian base. In the end they couldn't bridge a gap on legislation that sets a quota for the number of ultra-orthodox men to be drafted into the military, so it really came down to these societal divides between religion and state. What happens next so Isreaeli will go back to the polls in September. They'll, they'll vote again. And then the same process that we just went through here. We'll happen again, which is the votes will be tallied the heads of each party. That wins seats in the Knesset the parliament will go to Israel's president recommend someone to have a chance of forming a government last time.

But I. It's been another close election for Benjamin Netanyahu. Last night, both the Israeli Prime Minister and his main rival Benny Ganz claimed victory in yesterday's vote. Certainly do. The parties are neck and neck with thirty five seats each in Israel's parliament, the Knesset, but mister Netanyahu has a clear path to forming a coalition government. Seems to have won the election. His potential coalition of right-wing and religious parties has sixty five seats out of the hundred twenty see connected. So that's majority ancho Feffer reports from Jerusalem for the economist. He recently wrote a biography of Mr Netanyahu what happens next is that seeming with ninety percent of the votes almost counted, assuming these fun results, the president will call in the party next week for consultations, and assuming now has a majority of recommendations he will be called upon to full new government. It'll take probably couple of weeks coalition negotiations and then presented to the Knesset. Probably in early may. We'll have a new Netanyahu government, which sounds more or less like the way things have gone over the past few elections. Why does this one matter every election at says the next one's in four years, but Netanyahu's facing a more severe challenge this time. Both in the identity of his challenger bennigan's was. Someone poised to take away the Mendel Mississippi Carritti from Netanya Renna close race. If there is also accurate, then at least in the party vote. He equal Netanya and the other challenge facing was that since the previous election multiple corruption allegations have emerged resulting in three potential indictments to hap- mooring investigations down the road. So I was also going to the nation is ready virgin saying vote for despite all that you've heard about my alleged corruption about those allegations. I mean, how might they affect his premiership his ability to form a government. How do you think that will figure into things from here on out well into the fifth, but that may be pretty sure if he comes avoid indictments, and is charging cord it'll also influenced the coalition goes next you because attention go dish in partners are aware of the pressure into now is under and they will. Probably be extracting a heavier price visiting in his religion. Whether in the shape of ministerial positions in policies and budgets, and they're not just joining the coalition former McGovern joining a coalition which will act to shield him from the indictments perhaps in new immunity legislation or even standing by him. If he insists on meeting prime minister wants charge in court. So is this going to have a huge effect on everything happening going forward and supposing he avoids the imminent danger there, what should we expect from government that that he forms? What kind of campaign promises did he make? Well, really that many campaign policies in this election is election has been about whether or not should remain prime minister, the one big policy bum show that he threw into the Rena just a few days ago was sort of off promise to annex parts of the West Bank. Now, we have to wait and see if he has that far right coalition right now, his potential partners even more to the right than they were the previous coalition. This is an option perhaps of going to bet against say, let's form a grand coalition national unity government, which will be more moderate that doesn't seem very at this point. But it's an option and the other wildcard here is the Trump these plant which is expected to be presented in a few weeks perhaps late may mid June and that will affect policy going forward. So how does the content of the Trump peace plan change the calculus here? Well, it's a new is well refed on what he can expect to find the. Trump east plan his ambassador to run his very close the Trump team he himself obviously hands a good relationship with Donald Trump. And we don't know quite yet. How he's planning to gain the term he could wait for the plastic is attended down. Which almost says we happens. The seniors of ready said that due to all the concessions made by ministration to these ready site just over recognition of Jerusalem as capital they're not going to have anything to do with Trump. And so he made his wait for them to reject it. And then say says then rejected that things have changed and we can do new things in the West Bank. We can change the status of parts of it. We can exaggerate offering to seventy seven that's one possibility. The other possibility is that some of things in the plan off things that Trump, and if you want to work with even if the Palestinians on board, and that could include some kind of change in the state of the West Bank in Gaza Strip all the changes vital status issues that we don't know. Oh, yet, if they'll being the fan weather ten says about them, but mister Netanyahu has has made these promises or half promises to do this annexation. I mean, doesn't that upend? The the whole idea of any Trump peace plan, regardless of its content. Receiving fan. It's something about sitting on going to even agree to dealing with in right now, this falls, we never pass it is they have no interest in engaging with Trump east. So whether or not the drumbeat planned it contradicts latest election promise, maybe a moot point. But it also maybe possible within the parameters of the Trump is we'll have to see what is in that land. Do you get the feeling that the kinds of noises at the Trump administration has been making have intern emboldened mister Netanyahu in his sort of according to the right wing suddenly feels that he has Trump's complete support. And therefore it safe to assume that he also feels that he can make the kind of promises which will bring the far right into the code. It should at the same time. There is a possibility that will use the Trump to try and bring a blue and white, but against his party into the coalition, and in that way, have much more stable government can say against look we both said. During the election, many things we both said that we won't sit with each other in the same coalition. But now with these plan on the table, there is an opportunity to make serious progress towards a final status issues. You don't want me to do that with the foul, right and the government, but you and I can do that together. So we'll have to wait and see how that plays out into Miao now has different options for building code, assuming bennigan's is open to discussing with him a joint government though, so far they've both ruled that. But anything said before election day is subject to review the day after

Israel pushes US to accept claim over occupied Golan Heights

"In one thousand nine hundred sixty seven Israel captured a territory known as the Golan Heights from Syria. During the Arab Israeli war over a decade later it officially annexed the heights, but the move was never recognized by the international community now as US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo visits Jerusalem. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is appealing for his country's occupation of the Golan Heights to be acknowledged the BBC's Barbara Platt Asha is traveling with Mr. Pompeo, prime minister Netanyahu conspicuously made the appeal while standing next to the secretary of state, Mike Pompeo. I think it's time that the international community recognize Israel's stay in the Golan. The fact that the Balon will always remain part of the state of Israel. This was after a year in which is rarely politicians have been urging both congress and the Trump administration to recognize Israel's sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights. Neither man would answer questions about whether that was indeed in the cards, instead, they emphasized the threat of Iran and its allies, including on the Syrian side of the Golan. And they said they were working together to roll back what they called Iranian aggression in the region, some of Mr. Netanyahu's political opponents have speculated that President Trump might recognize Israel sovereignty in the Golan to help the prime minister in forthcoming elections. Whether or not that's the case, Mr Netanyahu is getting a strong show of American support and not only from Mr. Pompeo. Visit he set to meet Mr. Trump in the White House
