Everyone thinks i should go this way. And this seems really great on paper. But where do i really feel in my body and my heart and my soul and so having the ability to discern for yourself what's right and true for you and nobody else can do that and when other people try. That's where things kind of get messy because they're doing so they're trying to support us and guide us from a place of love. But they're not us and they're not in our life and they can't make these decisions for us and so i'm a really big advocates for having that relationship to your body because that's where intuition inner wisdom really lives and that requires quite a bit of presence and mindfulness able to feel that little like Netanyahu body says no or like. Oh yeah i feel myself saying yes to this. Even though it seems crazy and ridiculous on

"netanyahu" Discussed on The Majority Report with Sam Seder
"Part of the joint test and they didn't based faction broke away from the joint negotiated with neo on entering collision with him and at the only reason that didn't happen was the details other allies. Those same extreme ashes of undeveloped lists of the drew sighs mentioned before said we're going into a government with this list so now actually was was trapped in him too. He was making himself though the breath and she was making himself in supporting these extremists. And therefore he wasn't to for ocean but after legitimizing this islamist faction the centre-left and bennett in the pete. Were able to say well. If netanyahu is willing to sit with them obviously we can sit with them and that's how they got a syllabus and party to join them that's how they're now part of the commission and this is a huge shift and the politics of palestinian citizens. that now need to contend for the first time with one of their own parties joining the government Seeing what that means some caesar's betrayal some students in an opening for new beginning. Right i mean. And i think a lot of that depends on the leadership of palestinian israelis. And you know what they're going to prioritize. My sense of things is that the someone like monster boss is a little more interested in and again this is just my read on things for the outside celebrity or like the center of things being one of the good palestinian israelis that can hob knob with the right wing and be in power than actually say you know representing palestinians in the occupied territories for example. I know you're a journalist and you may not want to kind of extrapolate on that. But i is that a fair read on things. I think. Verse level devastating joys.

"netanyahu" Discussed on Progressive Talk 1350 AM
"Netanyahu steps down after 12 years very big grudgingly, and he remains in the opposition. That's how it works in Israel, and so he's still there and still very much a player in Israeli politics. But He's not heading the government anymore. It's gone to to this new figure in the Taliban is joining us now is Vivian Salama, National Security reporter at The Wall Street Journal. Thanks for joining us, Vivian. Sure, great to be here. Israel has a new prime minister for the first time since 2009, the new prime minister, sworn in his Naftali Bennett. This is after we see Benjamin Netanyahu, who is the longest serving prime minister there, leave Vivienne tell us a little bit more about this transition of power. And then after that seems like it's an opportunity for the Biden administration to start fresh with Israel. Now that he's president, Vivian, tell us a little bit more about this, please. That's great. There's been I'm a pretty rocky a couple of months. Maybe even years, you could say in Israeli politics, where efforts to form coalition governments has collapsed, and Israel's long serving prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, who is a known figure here in the United States, he was really struggling to kind of keep his Coalition afloat and finally, you know, made growing pressure BB, Netanyahu was facing a lot of internal pressure, personal pressures as well. He has some legal issues due to some charges of Corruption and otherwise, and so he he basically a hit a wall when it came to a lot of the pressures that where he was facing, And so, finally, you know, in recent weeks, they just decided that they were going to form a new coalition and Naftali Bennett, who's been One of the right wing very well known entity in Israel, right wing politician sort of climb the ranks and he was doing that was found to be the next prime minister. And so there's a transition going on. Not without a fight. BB. Netanyahu steps down after 12 years very big grudgingly and he remains in the opposition. That's how it works in Israel, and so he's still there and still very much a player in Israeli politics. But He's not heading the government anymore. It's gone to this new figure of Taliban it, and so yeah, I mean a lot of changes as far as a fresh face in Israeli politics, Um, you know, at least from the US perspective he's like I said, is very well known entity in Israel and an interesting point for President Biden. Right now, he's known Benjamin Netanyahu for like 40 years. And he's never met Bennett before. He called him very quickly after he was sworn in and all that, But this is the kind of that new chance right now to start this new relationship. So President Biden has really felt that his relationship his four decade relationship with Benjamin Netanyahu, which dates back to when Netanyahu's at the embassy in Washington, believed that that was like a major foundation for the relationship between his administration and Israel, but also bolstered his ability. To negotiate or help to negotiate a ceasefire last month during that awful fighting between Israel and Hamas fighters in God line. Also, the relationship was very tense because of the fact that a the Biden administration is renewing talks with Iran to try to see if they can re enter the nuclear agreement. Which is something that both Benjamin Netanyahu and his successor and the Taliban are very opposed to and also, you know, they've been talking about providing aid to the Palestinians, helping to rebuild Gaza and calling Israel out on expansion of settlements, All these things that ruffle feathers with both Benjamin Netanyahu and also with Naftali Bennett, who has been a very vocal opponent of the Iran nuclear deal. He's been a very staunch supporter of expansion of settlements and things like that. And so a lot of similarities between the two men, although internally domestically there's definitely some differences, but even that Yahoo came out on Sunday and said, you know, Then it is going to be weak when it comes to fighting against their on nuclear court, And he's not going to keep Israel safe. And he kind of talked about his relationship with Biden and said that he is not afraid to talk tough to bite in and put Israel's needs first. And Bennett, um kind of brushing that off and plowing forward. And so Israeli politics is never dull, and it certainly wasn't in the last couple of days. But it will be very interesting to see how the bite administration decides to proceed with all the Tell me a little bit more about how fragile this new government there is because it's comprised of a bunch of different parties. If somebody drops out and they don't have enough support, you know it kind of throws the whole thing into a whirlwind. Naftali Bennett is a new prime minister. But as I mentioned, everything is very fragile at the moment. They're eight parties with very, very different views on a lot of issues. Domestic and foreign in this coalition and one of the major kind of news making coalition parties within this coalition is an independent Arab party joined the government for the first time, and so that was all Very significant and so hard to get them to agree, and to be on the same page as anything and they start fighting, and they kind of create a gridlock and the whole entire thing falls apart when some of these parties refused to to participate in the government anymore boycott and things like that. So a very challenging undertaking for for Bennett and one where he's going to have to kind of be careful. So, yeah, he comes into this position with pretty sharp right wing views on a number of issues like the Iran nuclear ground like settlements like a lot And other domestic issues like that. I keep saying but at the same time If he rocks the boat too much he threatens to really topple this coalition. That again is so fragile and a lot of observers a lot of folks in the U. S administration and Israelis that we've spoken to really believe that it's going to force him to moderate his political views, because the only way to really get any kind of consensus done is by moderating and trying to kind of total line and walk in the middle. And so that's Sort of what folks are expecting. But obviously it's his first day on the job. It's a wait and see situation. Definitely a new page for Israel, New Prime Minister Naftali Bennett So we'll see how all of that progress is Vivian Salama, National security reporter at the Wall Street Journal. Thank you very much.

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. This guy lied to the people of Israeli lie to the people who voted in his party. Hundreds of thousands, Not many, but still To get what he wanted to get. And the media. Think this is a unity effort. It's a unity effort. Unity around what Have these disparate groups. Anti Zionist pro Zionist, most of them anti Anti American. In some cases hard left, they call them center left there.

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.

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

"It's kind of like the trees like the kerensky. They figure you know lennon. Put him in as a week. Figure transition figure. I mean you know the The left even viewed fdr that way when he first became president did supported because then they can guy down the road and he'd this week straws this intermediate figure wouldn't have any actual political power is decide. It's a procedurally that I think it's twelve days before it could be ratified and right now. The speaker of the knesset is a netanyahu appointee and he's dragging it out so they one house. They want to force a vote to get rid of the current speaker so they could hurry it up a but if any point within the next twelve days yahu could get defections from one of the parties then the coalition will fall apart in the most likely place to get defections are gonna be from The few right wing parties that are in the black lake Even the bennett's own on people that are The right wing parties will bend the back to netanyahu that the design. That's what you're netanyahu said that that So don't be so sure that The argon form a coalition and I've i've been sailing is is really politics really a mess in in constitutional convention. I saw i. I didn't see that conversation. You had with mordechai ca. Darby thing even your scholarly Professor qatar is really saying that israel should have a completely upend in change. Its nature from your however was set up to a confederation and so m zooming someone professor could dr is saying that the current system in israel is completely unworkable and broken and they need to have some sort of a constitutional convention and restructuring of the whole government and i am generally in agreement with you actually qatar in his confederate plan. That's i think that's probably the best idea. But you know. Unfortunately that would a require completely changing the israeli constitution and system. And if you can't get a coalition Even have a prime minister. How you're going gonna get a super coalition to change The you'll the whole system. And then you're really bennett is really just going to be a strong run. You put them in. And so if the coal the there's also promise of bennett does get in and the coalition falls apart. You can have the same situation. With like netanyahu with bennett. Were there keeps on being elections in Bennett will be the prime minister going forward until they could figure it out and god forbid that could be a disaster because he he is a strong hand man that that had basically been calling..
"netanyahu" Discussed on The Charles Moscowitz Podcast
"Seems like it's very strange but but i just want to come and also People really seem to dislike. Netanyahu and i get the fact that he's probably been in too long but i think that again. This is an american talking looking from the outside to me. It seems like he's been very solid and able prime minister. I mean he's resided over. An economic boom is is modernize economy. He's reduced regulations. Is the dark got the startup nation. You've got on a national security standpoint. He's been pretty moderate and he hasn't done like begging marching unit occupying lebanon. he's been. He's responded cautiously and moderately to genuine threats to the national security over there near career. So mean i get the fact that maybe he's been in there too long and and be good to see someone else but i don't get. This is anger in this this portrayal of them in this villain this way by israelis. I don't understand that. But i think you're inequity. I think that like i said last week that netanyahu said that he did not go into gaza only because the americans begged him not to that you the vast majority of israelis thought they should and like i said netanyahu will be that you'll conspiratorially if it's here in the us the keeping netanyahu and power the reason they're keeping him in power is because they'll be replaced by someone further to the rights of you. See bennett one of the biggest critics of netanyahu one of the biggest critics of netanyahu right now for not going into gaza and An in for being weak that that in america netanyahu was chris i as a war criminal in israel. He's criticized for being weak and madeleine kadhamy of the difference but he won american general gut. It's it's a controversy. Israel has to live with a hostile neighbor that kids firing missiles and territories and gas balloons over the water. And maybe you know from looking at trying to think about an israeli living ashdot or ascalon. You know it is week. They wanna see him. Finish the job with gaza in from us that you know so. Yeah that's that's a legitimate political question. But in a way it reinforces what i have said in that. He's always been fairly. Moderate in his defense of the national security is dependent israel's national security but he hasn't done it he's done it with the minimal amounts of You know of a heavy hand. I mean at least You know unlike what some people would like. And maybe maybe maybe reasonable. But how is a bennett. If he becomes prime minister i mean how will he be able to operate with the troika as worthy you know the other the league on the far left and the and the israeli arab head. I mean he's not going to be able to do any of these things that you're talking about. It would never had to do that. Yemen just a disaster. Because it's really just a power share. Were the promising gives to the other people in the only reason people in the left. There's no path to a coalition on the left. So you'll the peed and ganz who have quite a few seats left you know has thirty forty seats up. But there's no path to a coalition. So they had to basically offer the prime ministership to a bennett. The only path to possibly ouster netanyahu. just procedurally that So they care about is they they to get rid of netanyahu because they figure maybe a little down the road then they could they could knock up then is there is that it..

"Place and then they fired missiles from like a quarter mile outside of the base but it was because was doing this mission that his commanders said that he shouldn't do and then they ended up firing artillery at the un base. And i think you killed close to one hundred people seven people. It's paseo possible or likely that the people who You fired the fired. The rockets at the bennetts crew did try to take shelter in the un base but That's the most egregious one of the most egregious according to the un war. Crime I think for ten years straight. The un passed a resolution trying to get the israel have to pay for it or recognize in only israel and the us voted against it and Actually war criminal. Charges naphtali bennett. I think tried to come to michigan awhile back. And he wasn't able to because their family members of the people in lebanon that live here in metro detroit and literally tried to bring a wrongful death suit. So it'd be it'd be ackward. Save say like okay. Netanyahu got for like a war crime or something like that. But like naphtali bennett. was part of something that clearly killed close to seventy nine combatants who were in refuge at un residents in lebanon not even an israeli territory and those people have family members of the road so It'd be extremely. I as i mentioned that enough. Tony bennett had tried to come to michigan from i understand and was stopped due to War chart work charges that they actually lebanese people have family members here that that wanted to have him arrested charged for the war crimes. In so it'd be a what what exactly i mean. It sounds like the tally bennett. Wh what exactly was his story and we would it. He'd say with regards to this this attack me. And i don't think he meant to kill innocent people. I doubt that. I don't believe that at all. But you know he must have some kind of a military nation but why he companies acquire missile at that building. Unfortunately i mean he was young then and you see wikipedia. Even the israeli investigation came out pretty negative. That that he was more aggressive than his commanders. So he wanted to go in and the exact johal the israelis you basically put it that he that That he on his own accord without the permission of commanders. Went in to try to hunt down. You know extremists. People were the rockets. Were being fired. And then he came under rocket fire and called for backup and the backup ended up hitting hitting the un base in southern lebanon in so the israeli records. Say nuff tally bennett. Never took responsibility. He claimed that the un probably had something to do with the rocket fire. An even these rayleigh investigation said I mean they never gave the names with the israeli investigation. Released that That they did say basically racist things against arabs. That they were said like. Don't do this. And in that he had said like they're just a bunch of arabs or end so that's even the israeli invest industry tally..

"Welcome back worldly listeners. We have been talking about the new government in israel or what we think is going to be. A new government should hasten to add because we weren't were invested at the details of the coalition Expand on this point they still need to take a formal vote and once they do that. Then netanyahu is out but there are a few days in the way. The israeli system works between them. So it's who can convince a few members of one of the right wing parties to defect and join his party then the coalition can fall apart. That seems unlikely at this point but unlikely in israel is very much not impossible so is still theoretically plausible dismiss governments coalition government will never be but it does seem like it's going to happen and then on that assumption we wanna talk about what the implications are if the taliban erla peed take their partnership to to the top job in israel. I i think the most obvious thing to talk about is what will happen to these really palestinian conflict. My own instinct. Is that the answer to that will be basically a perpetuation of the status quo as long as the government lasts jan. Is that your sense. Do yeah i mean like i said you know i i mentioned it. The in the first half net tallymen ads hardcore pro settler and pro annexation views but be are lupi centrists and is generally in favor of the two state solution there are also other camps. Who are you know. There are members of the coalition who even more staunchly in the pro-peace camp. So i don't think you're going to see you know because of those divisions. I don't think you're gonna see any massive changes in either direction. I don't think you know it's not suddenly going to create the circumstances that make a piece you know agreement or even returning to the negotiating table likely. I think you may continue to see when we're talking about. The status quo continued settlement activity. I don't know if you're going to see a settlement freeze. I think you could maybe see the settlements slowed down somewhat. But i doubt unless there's kind of external pressure from the us sir or other areas that you'll actually see like a firm settlement freeze. No bennett was hardcore against that. I think my gut instinct here based on knowing this stuff pretty well. I think that you're probably just agreed to do nothing. Essentially like everyone disagrees on all of the details so that are just gonna leave it and pay attention to israel internally and trying to govern their and the political situation there with the caveat of trying to make sure that the ceasefire with hamas holds your. I mean just to echo one of the ironies here is that then. Yahoo has made so many gains for the right wing in israel and like just kind of ending thoughts tuesday solution and then taking an occupying more territory that that issue is kind of been somewhat off the table. I mean not. It will never be off the table right but it's just not as vital at this moment and so you could imagine just as you said that this coalition focus more on other things because in part me you know lupita minute have views on it but also there's not much space to move you also the us that doesn't really want to push for any progress here so they're gonna do other things like get the economy back going. Make sure the pandemic squashed make sure the ceasefire holt and then perhaps some other areas of agreement that they that they might have. But this is the irony here is like netanyahu somewhat sowed the seeds of his demise in by by again just making so many strides in that space and then now and i said a good strides but he's made such an effort that like this coalition. Just doesn't have to think about that too much. I think one helpful way to think about it is that there are three big traditional areas of cross cutting tension inside israeli society. The first one is security relations with arab states in the palestinians primarily and foreign policy in general the second is sort of ethnic religious divisions. Obviously jews and arabs are near the top of that but you also have tensions between The eskenazi jews were of european descent. Typically mizraki who of middle eastern descent plus ethiopian jews whole diversity of different divisions inside the jewish community that have some political salience and then third you have religion. This coalition is not positioned to make serious moves on either security or ethnic communal issues right. They're just they're so internally divided on those issues that it's very little going to happen right on the religion friends. We as i talked about a little bit earlier. It's possible there could be transformative legislation but on the those two key issues that we about a lot and we talk about israel in the international context. I it seems impossible to me that anyone could do anything without forcing a significant Defection enough to to lose them their majority in the parliament. All right. that's the nature of having a left right. Coalition given the importance of security issues and relations at the palestinians. And i think this It connects really well with this is a term used and discussed in a previous episode. It's called non-solution. The wave understanding the way that israel is have approached the conflict for a while. Which is they don't need to have solutions. They just need to muddle through with the status quo. Which is acceptable. Minimize the risks that it creates so you don't solve anything you just you just make the problem Less of a problem for as long as you can manage it. And i'm not saying that's a humane way of approaching the israeli palestinian conflict. Or just one. I think the the very clear moral analysis of this is that it's not right. It's it's subjecting the palestinians to a state. They can be fairly like into a lot of ways to apartheid for an indefinite period of time. But the fact that there's a huge coalition that has such internal divides on what to do about the conflict and the fact that the sort of mainstream approaching israel for a while has been non-solution is among the conflict suggest to me that the status quo will just continue the policy of solution and we would just won't see anything because we'll be too difficult for the coalition to do anything now. Events may force people sands right a terrorist attack more rockets being fired out of gaza tensions with iran flaring up all sorts of different ways in which one can imagine events forcing the government to try to do something about issues related to the palestinians and foreign policy that then bring out its internal divisions but as long as they can stay together a necessary condition of that. We'll be doing nothing about the palestinians. Doing nothing sorry doing nothing to change the status the palestinians for better or for worse is there like a this is the father just popped in my head but is there like a better term wag. The dog concern. Like if you have such a weak government and there are these obviously replaces tons of security issues. Is there at least the chance that if it looks like the government may fall or there's a lack of support for it that there could you talk up a security issue with palestinians or with iran. Or whatever may be sort of escalate in a certain situation and to get a rally around the flag effect and get people behind the government. Is that even something that we should consider. think about. Or is that maybe just being a little constitutional again. It just popped my head right now. My view is no lady largely because trying to manufacturer a conflict in that way would alienate the left and rom the islamist party right and you fair. Yeah right right. It's just it's so divided that you can't on those issues security foreign policy etc. It's going to be very difficult to try to find major initiatives that you're gonna get everybody agree on one area. I do think where there will be. Some change is the relationship with the united states. Because netanyahu is He's a lot of things but one of them is a republican not like by party affiliation but in terms of outlook..

"You know the the champion of the peace process and of course you've you've got months or a boss. And deep actual arab voters. An arab knesset members that you need in order to keep the coalition running only under all those conditions. I could see how abstractly one can look at the situation and be like prime minister. Bennett is arguably a downgrade from prime minister. Benjamin netanyahu but if you look at the broader context of what this coalition actually is in the way that it works. Bennett will not be able to be bennett. He will have to be a prime minister constrained by the center and left of the israeli political spectrum. And that certainly means he can't do a lot of the stuff. Netanyahu got away with like while he was prime minister right and and i absolutely agree. I think that's spot on the thing for me though. Is that will one as you said bending gets the first two years and then essentially you're lead the next two years. That's assuming that it lasts that. Long of all and second naturally bennett. His wanted to be prime minister for a very long time and has been openly working toward doing so and the thing for me is that once. He's in that prime minister's chair. Do they get a fancy chair. I'm not sure. But you know what i mean. It's a stool at maybe. It's like a spinach. I dunno 'cause it's revolving get it. It's terrible so leave a jokes to be. Yep yep fair enough but the thing is once he's in that position then once he's seen as having been prime minister that alone changes his political Image right and so. I think that puts him in a situation where he did. Even you know given the veto issue and everything else. He's still going to be probably prime minister. And that is not anything to thumb your nose at right that that is a big powerful position in israel and having been in that position. Even if he's constrained. I guess my concerns. Are that going forward in the coming years. Does he then you know. Is he able to gain more. And more power more and more attention etc enabled to eventually supplant netanyahu as the face of the of the hard right and of the new right and then then you end up in a place where he doesn't have those constraints so so one quick point is. I'm not as optimistic as perhaps you guys are on vetoing bennett's actions in part because he also wants to be prime minister if the rotation then comes to him he has vested interest in making sure that government survives the couple of years until he gets to be in charge. And so while you're right. He does have the ability on occasion or actually almost on any occasion. Say no to bennett. Government that isn't governing falls apart especially one with these thin margin so there's a theory out there and it's not super widespread but i think important enough to mention that lied. Maybe just okay. For the moment of kind of leading ben and get away with stuff for a while so he eventually gets to be prime minister and so you know that then would imply bennett gets to kind of use. The like the government will fall as a as a casual against the zone veto authorities. All right so we're going get a quick break and we come back. We're going to discuss the the stakes of what we've been talking about For the palestinians for the states and for israel's place in the world. Are you going with people. Maybe you're organized or have a knack for numbers while then chances are you've got skills that can lead to a new career. A google.

"The influence of ultra orthodox parties on power of jewish religious authorities on israeli public life. Right like neftali. Bennett is religious himself. But he's a religious nationalist which is distinct from the ultra orthodox in terms of the religious spectrum inside israel and one that is in. His party is secular right in his number. Two yellow cat is avowedly secular. Yes right that's the idea is to create a more ecumenical political right inside israel. Then you have the islamists who obviously have no attachment to jewish law being a major part of israeli law and a whole bunch of secular or left wing parties that are avowedly hostile to the influence of religion on israeli public discourse so there are lots and lots of differences between the political factions. Here that are involved in this coalition but like one notable point of agreements. Is that the sort of very very very religious. Jewish state man has potentially more power than it should Inside israel so maybe you could see actual legislation on that. But i think on the whole i agree with both of you. This is just a coalition of of opportunistic people who either have principled or personal reasons for disliking. Bb right like been a and of your lieberman stay ahead of you throw potato s- another right-wing party this is also secular right-wing wing party. They both have served in netanyahu governments under him right and for a lot of time. You can see a lot of ideological affinities between them on certain issues benedict even further right than netanyahu is. When it comes to settlements he really pushed for the idea of annexing parts of the west bank earlier in his political career which then became mainstream in israel in large part due to his efforts so easy it's a very very complicated set of arrangements but also one that reflects the way in which the traditional rights which is a fusion of religion and conservatism. On foreign policy really Consolidated behind netanyahu with a few exceptions and then everybody else is on the other side. Well very quickly zach. The the point. I was trying to make is an i feel like he kind of made it for me which is good. I'm glad this coalition is against stuff. Right even mentioned there against this this religiosity in their against on yahoo. What are they for. I don't really know bennett. Did say like they might do some education reform and some other things but you do need to govern and with a thin margin need to show results. And if you can't even like fine you hate these things or you're against these things but the other side then yang side seems at least coordinated and they know what they like. They like netanyahu and they like what he's put forward and debtor cetera. So that that to me is sort of the big problem here. It's like we don't know what they're going to do. And that's that's already just on the political side dangerous let alone. Just like the whole benyahu aspect. Yeah i mean. I kind of want to dig into a little bit about who tally bennet please. Is i've met him in person. Oh i didn't know that. But when i used to work at the brookings institution center for middle east policy. I used to help run the annual sabban forum which is a forum on israeli palestinian issue and brings together a lot of political figures Israel's palestinians and other others involved in that conflict in negotiations etc and Yeah neftali bennett. Came to washington one year. And he's i have to say he's an incredibly compelling figure in terms of as a politician. I disagree Extremely strongly with his views but he's young. He's dynamic and bennett. Spent a lot of time in living in the united states. He was born in israel but he lived for a long time in the united states with his family. He is basically like a sort of a tech entrepreneur. He in some buddies got together and decided they wanted to start a company and they ended up doing so started this kind of high tech company they sold for millions of dollars you know. He ended up pretty well off but he's not jokes and says that doesn't mean the kids won't have to work but he he's very his set him up. As as the new face of the right in israel the younger more dynamic kind of moving away from some of the older paradigm of the israeli right but he was also very much. Seen as a in many ways. Netanyahu's protege one of his children is actually named. After netanyahu's older brother served in the military. He has very strong kind of fee. He fought in the lebanon bore. You know he came back from that. War was very critical of how the government and the military handled that war. He thought israel essentially should have done more to stamp out his in lebanon and that they bungled it and that's essentially got him into politics but he's very much. He led a settler council. We're talking pro settler. He's pro settler. But he doesn't interestingly he doesn't live in a settlement. He lives in a nice neighborhood in tel aviv. So he's very much seen as this kind of it's this weird. Not religious like you said not the orthodox view of jewish religious nationalists. It's very much a a more modern religious nationalist movement but to be clear like we're going to talk more about what all this potentially could mean for the israeli palestinian issue but he is avowedly against ever ever having a palestinian state. He has said that that he will do everything in his power to fight against the palestinians ever having a state at he believes that all of the occupied territories are essentially belong to israel from the river to the sea from the jordan river to to the mediterranean that is israel's land that there should be no concessions there should be no palestinian state. They should annex all of the west bank like he is not secret about that. He has bragged about killing arabs. He is not the kind of you know we're talking about change coalition and like what this means but if you're just looking enough tallied minutes and you're thinking oh okay. Wow so the end of netanyahu maybe you know things will change and is really politics will be less to the right. If you're just looking at neftali bennett. That's not where they're going but again. We'll talk about the coalition. Yeah yeah that's the problem right. You can take him in isolation so the way the coalition structure. It's very weird so ben. It's to be prime minister. I two year right and then two years after that your lead takes over. Lupita is a journalist by trade and very center. I would say potentially centre-left usually when we talk about centrist israel. It means broadly speaking center. Right but the paid Is is very much a two state supporter. He is also extremely extremely secular. Very progressive on domestic social values. Under this agreement. He serves as foreign minister in the first term when bennett's prime minister which you'd think would be just sort of you know subordinate thebenz. Well the tricky thing throws a wrench in all of this. Is that bennett. Lupita mutual veto agreement so as coalition works is if one of them decides. They don't like the decision. They have the unilateral power to scupper it when the other one is prime minister. So it's not just a matter of obama gets to take over first and lupita to do whatever he says not at all not at all ben. It is constrained by his partner. Who is somebody who's not gonna let him get away with his inflammatory most inflammatory anyway policies. I'm sure there are some things. But then there's also the rest of the coalition content. With right they have only a few spare. And if they bennett tries something. Along the lines of genesis describing this kind of dangerous anti palestinian anti era demagoguery. He runs the risk of losing the left right. Because you have merits which is like real. Left-wing peace party in the coalition. You have labor. Which is the traditional center left party in israel..

"You want netanyahu in office right now as long as he is there as the enemy that brings people who otherwise have nothing to talk about together and as long as he's there not in jail leading the opposition the specter of returning to what we've had for the past two years i think is a very strong incentive for the coalition partners to stick together. Yeah and just to clarify what you said the The law was trying to push through would basically immunize them from from being prosecuted while he was sitting as prime minister right. Yes oh that's part of the issue of why he wanted to stay in power so just to clarify that point. Even who has dominated israeli politics for as long as i can remember in terms of modern political memory right for for the last decade plus it has been bb netanyahu their entire generation of young people who came up in israel and the united states who view israel through the lens of netanyahu's right-wing views again. It's not official yet the vote we talked about parliament. Hasta centrally vote to have confidence in the government fridge. Officially go through so. It's not a general vote. Voters aren't going. It's it's the knesset voting essentially to approve government. And that happens it a few days and like we said that it could fall apart between now and then so just that caveat but if this holds and goes through and bb is actually unseeded. I i don't think it's you know overstating what a massive sea change. This is just the fact that this is is possible if this is happening right the the fact that bb be in control of these really government for the first time in a really long time is huge right. And i think we've talked about this. On previous episodes the views of israel palestine and the conflict you know specifically in the us and elsewhere are changing and a lot of that is because of this rightward shift that has happened in. israeli politics. led by netanyahu seating. this complete shakeup up is really fascinating but also again. i think it's hard to overstate. We keep using the word diverse and it is this coalition. But it's link historical to see in. Islam is party. An era party in a coalition agreement with a far right pro settler jewish nationalist party and then gear lead mr centrists and getting our and like it's just this wild coalition that no one thought would happen and we didn't think it would happen to alex mentioned this after the conflict most recently that between israel and hamas. There's a lot of talk about how this would support. Bb right it would help bb because he has always have framed himself is like i am the defender of israel. We need a strong robust security state to prevent against this kind of violence and previous conflicts have boosted him and that didn't seem to happen even though it looks like it was going to end up going that direction. It seems like there's just so much desire on the part of all of these different political actors and parties to just get out the door and just move on and try to have some sort of change. It's literally the change coalition right. They're are not hiding the fact that they have nothing else that they really agree on. Neftali bennett himself. Just this week promised. No one will have to change their ideology by becoming part of this coalition that is extremely explicit. Saying look we don't agree on anything and we're not going to try to convince you to change and become part of an actual functional coalition. We're all just allying to get rid of netanyahu. The question then becomes okay. We'll what happens after that right. Because you will have far right pro subtler neftali bennett ostensibly as the prime minister which that's very different than yahu. The sense that he's more to the right on many issues especially israeli palestinian issue. But what do you do like yes. He's prime minister but he has been a coalition with an islamist party and with centrist party and etc. So i think the questions and we'll get into this more. Obviously but i don't know how this yes. It's good to govern. Yes we need to move on and get away from. This cycle of endless elections as neftali. Bennett was promising. But how does that work in practice. I have no idea. There's a quote that year lupi centrist figure who is also important member of this coalition. Just a fine point the gen set and how everyone's been saying then. Yeah who's been around for a really long time right. Here's a go to a foreign policy in march which i had to read multiple times to kind of wrap my mind around it. My middle son was born in one thousand nine hundred five when he was seven months old. Netanyahu became prime minister for his first term from ninety six to ninety nine. In the meantime my son has gone to the army finished. The army got engaged broke. His engagement. went to university is now finishing his degree. And now who was still like. Wow that's funny. Granted he still has like a political incentive to say stuff like that. But i believe it to be true. That's just how long he's been. How important he's he has just been a central figure in israeli politics and is rarely life. Which makes this government of change. This coalition changes are sorta calling themselves a fascinating experiment in being like anti-politics like bb who. I'm sure the actual bb king feels like nobody loves me about my mother like in this case like every literally like everyone in israeli politics is like we just want him out. That is what binds them. That is the glue as we'll on the other half on one half of the ledger right. Like netanyahu was very close shorting coalition and. It's not just his party right. Like what makes this coalition different than a lot of israeli once in the past and really interesting. A lot of ways is that it excludes entirely the ultra-orthodox there's not a single faction that's involved in this coalition and that's that actually when we talk about all these new parties disagreeing on everything that's mostly true. The only area in which there is some alignment is that they are all skeptical..

Some of the world's coral reefs would survive crops would do better to the scientists also found that limiting global warming to one and a half degrees actually still possible but the world would have to cut carbon emissions roughly half by twenty thirty to do you it. If we don't achieve that target it gets really hard. This is Penn State University atmospheric scientist Michael Man if we don't get to that first critical reduction by twenty thirty it becomes very difficult to see away that we can limit warming below that dangerous one and a half degrees Celsius after that u n the report was released last year. The world had a deadline and we started to hear politicians and activists talking about it. We have no more than twelve years. Here's to.

"It's the beginning of the process and we don't stop stopped here then down the road. Why didn't we stop it there also the US and the Taliban were negotiating but where do you go to meet with a group that isn't internationally recognized iced. They also agreed that the Taliban should have an edge just where they can find them where they can meet them and Sarah Thomas this becomes the first person to swim the English Channel Four Times. The current pushing all over right now is totally raw water. Just wow I'm Carol hills all those stories and more ahead on the world. I'm Carol Hills and this is the world it's election day in Israel early. Exit polls are coming in and it's looking like a dead heat between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his main rival Benny Ganz both Netanyahu against his party's look to be on track to win just more than thirty seats each in parliament's. That's far short of what either would need to form a government on their own. Official results are expected. Tomorrow is the second national vote in less than six months. The Roads Matthew Bell is on the ground in Israel and has been talking to a range of voters. If there's an emotion that captures this campaign season it's fear and loathing mm-hmm that is a last minute plea on the morning of Election Day here in Tel Aviv against Benjamin Netanyahu. It's an SUV with the giants speakers on the roof signs on the side that say crime minister in an Israeli flag on the back that says I have no other country full disclosure. I'm going to simplify generalize here but let's break down the handful of major political camps and listen to what they're most anxious about. TEL AVIV SEBASTIAN FOR SECULAR LIBERALS THEY call it the bubble beaches nightlife cafes but lots of Televisa's feel that their way of life is under the threat from the religious right Gol and may tell Havi worry that freedom of religion especially the freedom to not be religious is slipping away in Israel along with basic human rights for Jews and Palestinians staff. We are scared scared even in Tel Aviv. It's the beginning of the process and if we don't stop it here then down the road. What would say why didn't we stop there? One of the rising political scars for the secular leftist stub shaft fear. She was surrounded by supporters when she showed up to vote at Tel Aviv polling station. Shapiro told me her her supporters have plenty to fear to have you know gay marriage divvy marriage public transportation on Saturday freedom to leave your life life. Live your religion spirituality or non religion the whether you want the government is doing something completely different and slowly people start to feel that it's becoming insane. The the ultra Orthodox religious camp is scared to a campaign message from Shos. One of the two big ultra-orthodox parties says they won't trample all the sabbath. Give them an answer at the ballot box. Shos activists Avraham Yitzhak off pointed to a group of left-wing activists across the street waving being rainbow flags and said they are the problem. Seattle team Hobday adult Ma'am Ma'am they don't want Judaism. They want to erase choosy. Judaism some but this is a Jewish country. The next political camp is made up of National Religious Jewish Israelis. That's a broad group that Netanyahu has relied on to stay in government for thirteen years it includes supporters of his Likud party along with hardliners from the far right who favored tougher policies he's toward the Palestinians and annexation of the israeli-occupied West Bank. Whatever the the the election results are tomorrow. maybe the best thing for the nation of Israel for the state of Israel and for the world speed Newman is an American born Israeli who's been living here for thirty years. His biggest worry would be a left-wing government government coming to power and giving the Palestinians a state of their own on what he considers to be God given land. There is no more central place to to the land of Israel then Judea and Samaria that's the core of the land of Israel and without that came as America basically giving up Arlington National Cemetery in Philadelphia and all the the central places that that wh where America was born the other big political camp would be those people of of Palestinian descent their diverse group to several million of them cannot vote because they're not Israeli citizens in the defacto Palestinian capital of Ramallah Hala. Abdurrachman tells me that she remembers well the last time she was able to vote in Palestinian national election that was was two thousand and six sure sure you feel enthusiastic. Pope I feel I have a home can me. Are you jealous in Iran inefficient antibodies that we have no elections through what we have been. Do you think you'll have a chance to vote again in the future maybe are are you hopeful about that now. No Automated Hanoun is an official with the Palestine Liberation Organization. He says whether they like it or not. Palestinians in the occupied territories will feel the impact active Israel's election nephew who an yoed Netanyahu. We're in the worst possible scenario. Hanoun told me Catania who was talking about annexing one third of the West Bank the Americans seem to be willing to go along with this and if Netanyahu wins Hanoun says it's a crisis for us as for the one million or so Arab voters inside Israel many of them feel targeted by the Israeli prime minister her Netanyahu's supported legislation that downgraded the rights of Israel's Arab citizens. It's called the nation state law and Yasser. Fella a dentist in Nazareth worries. It's only going to get worse. If the right wing camp stays in power here where you'll was born and your grandfather there was born. It's not your country and your land what you want more than that. This was a good blow to make aww people lose the faith philosophy. He's not willing to lose faith. That's why he was offering a ride to anybody who needed one today to get to the polls and cast their vote for the world. I'm Matthew Bell. Jerusalem democracy is messy but activists in Hong Kong. Think think it's worth fighting for that's why Hong Kong lawmaker traveled to Geneva this week legislator Tanya Chan pleaded with the UN's top human rights group to investigate police brutality against pro democracy activists Chan says police abuse of protesters and ordinary citizens in Hong Kong is rampant for example a female first eder she was shot by the police with beanbag rounds and blind one of her eyes and recently we can see that even even underage schoolboy just a bystander beaten up by the police with batons and suffered serious injuries juries because I visited him and so far after fourteen weeks of protest over one thousand four hundred people were arrested over for two thousand five hundred teargas cans were used causing serious injuries to a lot of normal civilians as well as protesters so so going back to your request by the U N how did officials at the UN respond to your request. I don't have very encouraging response yet but at least is a start and we'll we'll do more especially as a legislator will do more to communicate with the UN Human Rights Council but for the time being. Isn't it correct to conclude that right now now the UN officials are basically saying you know you're on your own. We can't really help I. Of course I would say is that uphill battle so basically saying we're going to be polite and let you talk talk but we're not that interested. China's diplomatic mission wrote to the United Nations in Geneva asking it to deny you credit nation. They called you a convicted criminal a Oh why I'm convicted due to my participation in the Democratic umbrella movement. I'll cases now waiting for appeal. Will we be heard in February the weekend protests in Hong Kong. They tend to start out peacefully and they break down into chaos and when we saw the photos this this weekend of masked demonstrators throwing petrol bombs outside government headquarters. Do you think this is inevitable that the protests become violent or is it a tactical decision to up the ante after all these weeks and over one hundred days of protest the Chief Executives Carrie Lam finally withdrew the bill after all these weeks and and the extradition bill exactly like strategic night at these protests first-place exactly and at the same time time. We have all four other demands. which is I think very reasonable? So what about the issue of protests turning violent. Do you worry that the protesters are going to alienate supporters if her tests continue to be violent there is no Ledra most of the protesters of very rational they do correct mistakes and learn from the experience and the most important elements is that support from the public so you if the kind of violence or disturbing scenes increasing that would be more difficult for them to maintain the support but at the same time or these can be stifled a government response to our demands positively so what what is the endgame here. Do you feel like the protesters should stay out there until the demands are met even if it gets my aunt well frankly speaking is a question that I've asked ask my friends and other legislators and I think the end gain hopefully is the government can answer our demands positively positively but I wasn't home. I mean they. They certainly haven't her except for the extradition bill. I do agree that we have a we are facing a extremely difficult difficult uphill battle even if they can settle keynotes with quotations settle the protests now. They can't keep the piece for too long. Tanya Chan is a legislative councillor representing Hong Kong Island. She's a founding member of the Civic Party. Thank you so much thank you. Keira hers is an accomplishment for the ages. Yesterday we told you about American Ultra Marathon swimmer Sarah Thomas and her attempt to be the first person ever ever to swim the turbulent English Channel Four Times back and forth back and forth between England and France nonstop. Thomas completed this astonishing astonishing athletic feet overnight the details of her swim are told in numbers fifty four straight hours in the water one hundred thirty four miles one jellyfish interesting to the face Sarah Thomas to talk to the BBC right after finishing in the dark last night coming back from France last time was definitely hard took forever and the current all over right now it quarterly rough water a GPS tracker made it possible for fans to watch Sarah's steady progress. Novice swimmers may have been a bit confused by her route. The currents made it impossible to swim the straightest shortest line Sarah's I four channel crossings look like sweeping parabolic curves and resting during those fifty four hours not an option. It only have ten minutes when you hit each side right but each time I got the other side there wasn't the beach so I just had to touch her and then try and tread water in each something really quick and then start back off off-again. Thomas wasn't alone on her quest. She had a team boating alongside including Elaine Howley herself. An ultra marathon swimmer Howley says five miles from the finish the current shifted and Thomas had to swim directly against it. All the crew could do was cheer on their swimmer. She's hired but David she didn't. They got huge our current. There's one more thing that makes this English Channel record extra extraordinary. Thomas was diagnosed with breast cancer two years years ago. Elaine Holly says that was part of Thomas's motivation really why to prove to ourselves that she was still Sarah Thomas the ultra marathon center despite having entre cancer and Chemo and sales at says she wanted to make sure that it was still something been Shaka do unless you think thorough. Thomas must have immortal psychological powers to persevere she too has human doubts unless you're GONNA go back. When I got back to England I but I should just finish in quit. What am I saying get what you can do. Better you can keep going indeed. She could keep going Sarah Thomas the only person to ever successfully we swim four laps of the English Channel nonstop just amazing. This is the world I'm Carol Hills. This is the world the violence in Afghanistan continues. Afghan presidential elections are coming up at the end of the month in the lead-up has been especially deadly today. A suicide bomber killed at least twenty six people at an election rally for Afghan President Ashraf. Ghani dozens. More were wounded. The Afghan president himself self was unharmed. Ghani actually continued delivering a stump speech after the explosion which struck just outside and open field where the campaign rally was held. Ghani Ghani is seeking a second five-year term. The Taliban has pledged to step up violence to derail the election and there was a second attack today this one in Kabul the Taliban Alabama claimed responsibility for both of today's bombings. This witness described a horrific scene in Kabul mcdonagh in Europe. It's got us around one o'clock clock when suddenly a blast occurred at the entrance of the army recruitment center near the US Embassy. I saw people in human flesh in the Air American forces alongside their Afghan counterparts art have been aggressively attacking the Taliban in recent weeks. This violence has all been happening as a peace plan to end the eighteen year war finally seemed within reach president trump has long said he wants to end American military involvement in Afghanistan. US negotiators had been meeting with Taliban for about a year but earlier this month after an American soldier was killed by the Taliban. The president said that negotiations were dead.
"netanyahu" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Foreign Desk
"He has to wake up every morning and think that if he doesn't get through this day and if he doesn't ensure his own political survival, Israel itself will not survive. He believes in historical destiny in the sense that the Jews are always on the brink of destruction always have to be constantly on guard and he doesn't see anyone else in Israel as capable of of being that God of being the man to make sure your work compromise what make any concessions that his life's work. And that's that is historical Desi. That's how he sees it. We, we do need to mention the father around. Of course, the older brother because these are often characters deployed in people, try by people rather trying to understand divine a Netanyahu, psychological makeup. He's father Benzon Netanyahu the distinguished if somewhat marginally historian who lived pastas hundredth birthday. And of course contrasting with the the glamorous older brother yeoman Netanyahu the only Israeli fatality of the the, the right on Entebbe this sort of absolutely gilded national hero. Do you think the role of those two figures in Netanyahu's life has been overstated? Would he have been who he is without them a con, make that kind of positives whether or not he would have been different without the, but they said they both played very major roles in making out of the man. He is his father furnished Netanyahu's historical outlook. If you read his father's historical essays and books, you can see how he basically built the whole narrative through which Netanyahu sees the past of the Jewish history. And what he has to do in the future to ensure Jewish survival. Benetton was a student of of anti-semitism. Basically his specialty was Spanish period of the inquisition and the expulsion of the Jews, and he saw the, he's what he saw. He saw a weakness in the Jewish leadership of that period which he was she reasons which was five hundred years ago and he sold us saying weaknesses in the twentieth century in contemporary Jewish leaders and Netanyahu model himself as the counter narrative to the week leaders who put his all of the Jews at risk, he would be very different lead. That's how he sees himself to this day. As far as Yanni goes babies, elder brother, Jonathan Yanni. He was perhaps even more influential on maybe growing because the father was very distant and closed in his study with his books and writing. He wasn't that much involved in his sons lives. Yanni was also the elder brother who rebelled against the father. Not an idea. Michael sense, but in in a very real sense of the fact that when at the time both in their teens, both of them, they were living with their family in Philadelphia where benching Tony our gun because he couldn't find academic post in Israel at the time he was studying and teaching in Philadelphia, and he wanted his sons to remain in the US not because he wasn't designed. He was a staunch Zionist, but because he felt that their destiny was to beat intellectual elite and to do that. He wanted them to go and study in Ivy league colleges in the US, and you only had been accepted to Harvard. Maybe it'd be accepted to Yale, but the fact that both of them chose to serve and to serve in the most demanding an elite of Israeli units instead of becoming as intellectual elitists that father want them to be will vary significant moment in baby's life Netanyahu's military career. As you point out does have significant gaps in it because quite a lot of what he did, we've unit the it is still classified, but I wonder what you make of the idea. That perhaps and not just team it say, I don't know if Trump's the right word, but it's clearly something that Israel has difficulty getting out of because most Israeli leaders like most Israelis serve in the military and they have a military career behind them. Is there an extent which Netanyahu never quite left the military, and therefore that he has that that weakness of responding to political problems with military solutions? Actually, Netanyahu is not a militarist in the sense that he doesn't believe in the idea if as solution to Israel's Israel's challenges in the sense of the idea is a big organization to now has never been comfortable giving orders as a prime minister for widespread mobilization. You make you make the point that fewer idea of soldiers have died under his leadership. And he's very civilians as well in terror attacks the the Ethel Sarah Mikhail is tiny..
