The International Reaction To Joe Biden's Win
"Farm minister who has now tweeted. Congratulations joe biden. On your spectacular. Victory joined with other nations. Latest around the world congratulating congratulate and on behalf of new zealand. Vicky nice including lights. I want to congratulate president-elect buydell and vice president-elect harris. us allies around. The world have moved quickly to congratulate president. Joe biden vice president-elect kamala harris on their win even as president trump still refuses to concede the election for countries like canada france and germany. Biden's victory could signal a return to cooperation on alliances like nato and treaties including the paris climate agreement but the prospect of a biden administration seems less promising to more authoritarian leaders with whom president trump ford strong relationships during his time in office including north korea's leader kim jong un brazilian president jair bolsonaro chinese president. Xi jinping who so far have all refrained from publicly congratulating biden and harris. Joining me now is yes means. Sirhan london base staff writer at the atlantic. Thanks for joining us again. As mean thanks for having me also with us. Clouds ladas professor of history and international affairs at the university of north carolina. chapel hill. Klaus good to have you with us. Thank you hello. How are you doing all right. We are in very interesting political moment right now. The president trump has refused to concede and yet president-elect biden is moving forward and the world is noticing clouds. How would you describe the scope. So far of the international reaction to biden's victory well on the whole thing that has been a lot of rejoicing a lot of applause for biden. I think people are hugely relieved that the trump administration will not have a second term and most people are most leaders in in europe and asia and of people in that country's overjoyed. I six they were really getting fed up for the trump administration. It was too dramatic too. Chaotic to unpredictable and people are relieved to see a new administration. I cost you said the administration was dramatic and unpredictable. And i think many americans would agree with you but it continues to be dramatic and somewhat unpredictable. Given the fact that the trump administration is now calling for recounts and investigations into what they allege voter. Inconsistencies are world leaders looking at that and saying anything about that. The fact that they're still Has not been a concession from president trump. Well del shaking their hands. Most of them are shaking the hats but the key for that sorts to themselves because it is no point to interfere in businesses seen as domestic american politics very few people at least very few democratic leaders have any understanding for what is going on in washington. It seems to be pretty obvious that the was of a free and walls not done in a fraudulent way at all and over. Four million people can vote for biden Rather than for trump's majority will lots of for millions of popular vote. He won miss. Four million people and the people have accepted. That biden is president-elect. And booby the new president but they are. You know wondering what's going on in washington but hardly anyone is actually surprised. At the trump administration would embark on such a course of action because that fits in with what is administration was like chaotic dramatic unpredictable and quite irrational to some extent mean given what klaus just laid out there in terms of the continued reaction to the world leaders at least us allies. Saying you know okay. We'll watch what's happening and see how this all plays out. How much of the reaction you think is excitement about biden himself versus relief about removing president trump from office. It's a great question. I mean it's worth noting An and i thought can of clauses overview spot on that you know for a lot of world biden is a very familiar character He certainly not new to the world stage. I think it was in. Benjamin netanyahu the israeli prime ministers congratulations that he noted that he's known biden for forty years. And i think a lot of world leaders know biden. So it's i. I think probably if i had to guess my assessment would be that it's probably the latter. I think a lot of i think a lot of the protests you are seeing in the us in the days after the result was finally announced was probably fell at least to me is an american observing from afar like a lot more relief than necessarily you know excitement. This isn't to say that you know. Folks don't like biden or unexcited to see him at the helm on his set a recognizable figure. But i think the world generally kind of just took a big sigh of relief that you know here returns a. Us option that recognizes. The us is traditional role in the world and will hopefully be kind of retaking that spot on the international stage. And yasmin. you are in london. Where prime minister. Boris johnson has had a strong relationship with president trump. How do you think this relationship between the us and the uk will evolve under a biden administration. It's a really good question. There's certainly been a lot of chatter about that very thing here kind of leading up to the us election and now after that we knew the result i think there is some conjecture that you know obviously as you just said President trump and prime minister. Johnson had a pretty good relationship. I think a lot of that stemmed from the fact that president trump was quite a big supporter of brexit. And you know. I think kind of quite appreciated the sort of comparisons between him and johnson superficial is some of the may be particularly. I think he quite liked references to johnson. As britain trump some remembering correctly and there has been some talk about some potential tensions between biden administration and johnson's downing street. I'm particularly with regard to brexit. Biden has been very clear about his support for the good friday agreement and opposing anything that would undermine it. And i think there's also some talk about how you know johnson before he was prime minister had made some comments with regard to president obama's support for britain staying in the eu. Where i think he made comments about obama's kenyan ancestry in how he had an ancestral dislike of the british empire so these are no doubt comments that administration would probably remember well. But i think it's worth noting that you know. These are things. I do not think are going to shake up the uk us relationship. In a major way. I think there's a lot more that And biden share particularly with regard to issues like climate change like the iran deal and. Yeah i mean. I think more broadly i would expect pretty good. Relations between the us and the uk going forward While it's certainly true. That trump and johnson had had a decent relationship I think you know the uk is is certainly a country that would see its relationship with the us being important irrespective of who's empower claus does not same theory hold true for other. You leaders like angela. Merkel for example and wilma call who themselves had troubled relationships with president trump. And who i can imagine so far are somewhat relieved to see this New administration elect. Yeah the But regarding johnson outside that johnson dossier a little insecure. He was the first international leader. I believe who fold up biden and congratulate him. They said i think that shows the level of insecurity and also abidance irish background. Bill make him wonder how. how how much you consult poured onto the united states in the future and the united vendor the united kingdom needs a trade. Deal the us. And i think he is for it. You know i think he would probably have seen a second trump administration as being more helpful regarding angela merkel and other european leaders. They certainly were relieved. Undiplomatic led a very bad relationship with trump or with raza. Put it the other way. Round a macro tried in various locations to make overtures to trump it was trump really rejected it who couldn't really in the end stand. Angela merkel nothing kid. He had a problem with female leaders. You had the problem as lead us. Who voted much more open to immigration and to do something about asylum people who were looking for asylum in their countries and he could understand and he also criticised the eu including germany for its huge trade deficit of us united states or rather to the united states of course had trade deficit busy you and he almost criticized the eu and it's trade policies. As much as he did china he called the eu. Actually a foe. Which is you know really surprising that you consider your most longest standing allies in the world that you suddenly regard them. As foes at least in trade relations. So underline michael and the german establishment as well as the french and other foreign policies tablets in europe are usually relieved that they see the end of the trump administration and us yes-men just that biden has a very good reputation. He is regarded to be quite honest as perhaps a little too old for the job but on the other hand is a centrist is not extreme is on the last notes of right people know him they a appreciate his his personality is a people person you some would say. Here's a backslapping sort of politician but much more extrovert much. More outgoing and much more ready to compromise than Trump was so all that shouting at nato summits or g seven summits all that Very bad atmosphere attention. The you know the almost talk about to break up of nato and talk about that trump wanted to undermine the quesion of political union of the european union all that will be a thing of the past because by and his administration can be expected to be very constructive to what nate to enter to you however having said that may the last sort biden will also insist on the european spending more money on their defense efforts so he will not be softer regarding nate and regarding the defense efforts of the europeans and here europe really needs to do something because that is an old complaint which goes back to the obama administration and before that wasn't actually unique to the trump administration. And the you know that they are very reluctant to spend more on defense. But i think a practice the president biden will actually be more successful in persuading them at. That would be the right thing to do as you mentioned. Joe biden's age. And i think that that's something that we must talk about because if something happens to joe biden we could be looking at a president kamala harris. And i'm wondering this is something that came up yesterday in our conversation about The role that black women played in american democracy in electing joe biden. We've seen kamala harris the first woman of color to ever sit in that role that i wonder how she will be received by world leaders. Yasmine your thoughts on that yet. It's a good question. I mean i think you know. Obviously that history-making of of her being elected the first female of vice president of colors obviously huge certainly noteworthy among a lot of the congratulations. that were received. I think it was prime minister. Narendra modi of india who actually dedicated an entire tweet just tacoma harris herself And i think the reason for that is is obvious. Obviously her indian heritage. He he sees that is is an opportunity to further strengthen the relationship between india and the us. but yeah. i mean. I don't know i would anticipate We as you say. Given president-elect biden's age that kamala harris could have a more hands on role than previous vice presidents that we've seen In in for that reason we may find that world leaders will quickly get to know come harris in a way that perhaps they didn't get to know vice presidents of the past and it seems just based on the comments that we've seen uncle mirko also an a made a comment about looking forward to meeting a kamala harris that we could expect that you know the world will be paying attention to both of them very much. Not just biden klaus What's been the reaction From china and president xi jinping so far there hasn't been much of a reaction. Xi jinping has kept quiet. We don't quite know why this speculation that perhaps xi jinping want antagonize the trump administration while it is still in office. The course and ten weeks you can do a lot of arm. And he knows that relations between china and the united states are difficult as they are that will continue to be difficult under the biden administration. So he's keeping a low profile on the social media in china have however been lots of comments. Some people really regretful that Trump is leaving because it made the united states weaker. It created a vacuum in international affairs which was appreciated by some observers in china as us believe you know it is much better to have a more stable more predictable government even if that government is perhaps more strategic in its relations with china. But they appreciate that proper possible predictability and international affairs so essentially. It's difficult to say what the leadership actually things and we will have to wait until eventually shipping and The foreign ministry in beijing will come out with a statement but they will do so nothing at the latest one set to mastic insecurity about the election. Outcome has been resolved than they of course will congratulate her joe biden and kabila harris now of course Clouds one country that we know has been watching the disarray In the united states or at least the tension in the united states has been russia. What have we heard if anything from vladimir putin and or his administration so far the gun russia's keeping a low profile putin hasn't congratulated i them and He is keeping quiet. Does not much coming out of russia but the they of course are disappointed. That trump did not win the second term. And there's been talk about disinformation campaigns. Not quite as much as two sixteen but russia did its bid to perhaps enable second trump victory and trump. However the to be quite. Frank hasn't been soft on russia. The administration perhaps not the president. Personally who always had such soft spot for putin and very confidential talks with him and no one really knows. What when on doing these talks but when you look at his policy his administration's policies towards a russia that wasn't soft all imposed over forty times a new sanctions on russia. So he the administration actually hasn't been soft on putin. But i believe that russia fears of fields that the unpredictability and the chaos and the. Let's say less focused way. of the trump administration than what could you can normally expect from an american administration that that in the end helped a russia that often the president Closed both ice and that influenced also of foreign policy. Make us in his administration like the state department. Yes maine another Interesting figure here is israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who has been a very close ally of president trump And that even translated into votes here. In the united states for the president from certain jewish orthodox communities. He congratulated joe biden and comma harris this past weekend. What do you expect to see from. Benjamin netanyahu in the near term when it comes to us. Israeli relations under a joe biden. I think this is something. That doesn't just apply to benjamin netanyahu but leeds had good relationships with president trump. I think narendra modi also falls into this category. And even figures like victor or bonham road regurgitate both of whom have also congratulated President elected biden But you know. I think he's a netanyahu in particular is a leader who obviously has a vested interest in maintaining a good. Us israel relationship irrespective of. Who's in the white house. It's no secret that obviously he benefited quite a lot. From having president trump in the white house the the moving of the us embassy to jerusalem being obviously one of those Kind of hallmark examples of a win for him That said He obviously you know. He recognizes that an admin the administration is changing. And i think he wants to shore up that relationship. But you know there's it it's been reported That the trump administration is hoping to kind of work with the israelis to sort of applies more punitive measures on tehran. Before trump leaves the white house in the form of sanctions to kind of make it more difficult for biden to return to the iran nuclear deal and try to bring that back it. This isn't to say that. Netanyahu and biden would necessarily see eye to eye on a lot of things i think we would probably see under a biden administration a return to the bit of the more traditional tone that we've known the us to take these israel Opposition to settlement expansion. That sort of thing support for a two state solution but indeed it will not be as rosy of friendship As we've seen between that and your home trump that's for sure we should also note that President trump's administration was also very close with bolsonaro of brazil. Both are considered to have really supported Populist movements and i'm wondering whether or not Desirable not who's also refrained from Congratulating harrison biden on their win and other populist movements across the world are looking at this and saying well maybe this is signals a change. Here i think it's definitely a loss for them. It's a setback. Because you know. I think particularly for leaders like bolsonaro. Who really sort of you know played on his relationship with president trump domestically I think this is a loss because you know even before particularly with populist movements even in places on like brazil where they aren't in power they could turn and look to president trump until their supporters. Look you know he's able to achieve this in the united states so we can achieve at here if know the greatest the most powerful leader in the world can do this that we can do this where we are so without question. I think it's it's a setback for them They lose that. You know that key ally in the white house But that said i think you know populous leaders like minded leaders to trump. Who could potentially take that narrative and sort of utilize it in their favor so While it is a loss for them. I don't necessarily think that it will end. Sort of their relationship trump or or will end them using trump is sort of an example to their benefit. Yes means seer. Han is a london.

A Lot Is Riding On The U.S. Election For Israelis, Palestinians
"Attention to the election results. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he has had a huge influence on President Trump's Mideast policy. And the two have given political support to each other when challenged. Overall, Israelis and Palestinians have a lot riding on whether Trump or Joe Biden winds. NPR's Daniel Astra is in Jerusalem and joins us now. Hi, Daniel. Morning, Rachel. Let's start with Netanyahu. What is it? Steak for him in this U. S election. Ah lot of that stake. His relationship with Trump is one of the strongest cards that he has with Israelis, and Netanyahu is facing weekly protests calling for him to resign. So maybe those protests could intensify if the protesters find inspiration in a trump loss. I mean, we're talking about two leaders who really have depended on each other during very tough times. Netanyahu has come to Trump's defense when Trump has been accused of fomenting anti Semitism. And then Trump has come to Netanyahu's aid when Netanyahu struggled to keep his job in three consecutive elections, But now Netanyahu is really playing it safe. Just in case biting winds, and I want to play you this very awkward exchange that happened. Just a week and a half ago, Trump had just brokered a diplomatic deal between Israel and Sudan, and he had Netanyahu on speakerphone. You think sleepy Joe could have made this deal, baby sleepy, Joe, I think you think he would have made this deal somehow. I don't think so. You want to? We appreciate for peace from anyone in America, and we appreciate what you've done and obviously Wow. So much said in the pause. There s O walk through what Donald Trump has done for Israel in Netanyahu's view. Trump has sighted with Israel and against the Palestinians again and again, he moved the U. S embassy to Jerusalem. He sided with Israel's claims to the city, even though Palestinians also want to establish their own capital. There. He recognized Israel's annexation of the goal on heights, which was cap from Syria. He went against most countries when he recognized the legitimacy of Israel's settlements in the occupied West Bank and even proposed he steal that would see Israel annexed all of its West Bank settlements. Which Palestinians say would make it impossible for them to have their own viable state. The last thing he's done is broker diplomatic deals between Israel and some Arab countries, and that broke the Arab concensus. That Israel should make peace with the Palestinians first before being accepted by the Arab world. Alright, So, Daniel, how do Palestinians view this election then? Well, they have a very clear preference there praying for Biden TTO win. They hope he can offer them a fresh start away. You know, to renew relations with the U. S, which have been cut off under Trump. I asked Dan Shapiro, the US ambassador to Israel, under Obama, what might change under a bite and presidency. He said Biden would not move the U. S embassy out of Jerusalem, but that Biden would take steps to preserve a two state solution to the Israeli Palestinian conflict, like opposing Israeli settlement expansion. And that would be something that Palestinians would welcome. NPR's Daniel Estrin in Jerusalem. Thank you. You're welcome. And people are following the US election and

Sudanese officials: Diplomatic deal with Israel is near
"How about another Middle East peace agreement? And that's exactly what happened. Sudan and Israel announced today that they will end the state of belligerence between them and start processing it and normalizing ties between the two countries Now This announcement came after a phone call hosted by President Trump with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the Sudanese Prime Minister Hom Doc and the head of Sudan's Governing Council. And it matters because, unlike Israel's recent deals with you e, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, there was a state of true belligerency their words not mine between Israel and Sudan, and it was going on. For years. Sudan is not designated in Israeli laws an enemy of the state. But for decades, there has been deep animosity and a history of military incidents between the countries which do not up until this point, have diplomatic relations under Sudanese law. Sudanese nationals are not allowed to travel to Israel and could face heavy penalties for doing so now. Earlier in the week, President Trump said that he would take Sudan off of our terror watch list. Those list of countries that the United States keeps an eye on because they have come to the table.

"Thank them and they are chanting king of Israel he called it an enormous victory for the right wing he said our opponents say the Netanyahu era is over not true he says he'll be the prime minister of all Israelis and he also reiterated a campaign promise to annex lands in the occupied west bank which most countries would oppose but he has president trump's blessing to do that and now the question is whether he'll be able to build a stable government to be able to carry out such a step I mean the really interesting wrinkle here is that this is a leader who has been indicted on charges of fraud and bribery why are so many people sticking with him yeah that's a great question I mean it's it we're talking about Israel's longest serving prime minister he has a very fired up base like you just heard and when you speak to an attorney voters they tell you yes we know that he's facing corruption allegations but he excels in international diplomacy he's got trump and Putin on speed dial as it were he excels in Israel's security concerns they say and so a lot of voters told me they were going with their heart they were doing with their belly they were sticking with Netanyahu his main challenger is a man named Benny gaunt's who has sort of been a thorn in Netanyahu's side for a while not right or or at least his main rival let's say that Netanyahu wins what how does Israel's future look different than if any consequence like what policies is he going to focus on that will really be distinctive it's the right question to ask because many people will say Netanyahu and guns don't differ that much in their ideologies although I do think that there is a difference first of all what we talked about with possible annexation of land in the west bank Netanyahu says he would push forward on that Gunn says he doesn't want to rush into that kind of controversial and then a key thing to to look at here is what happens in two weeks Netanyahu is scheduled to appear in court to face his corruption charges the Supreme Court will undoubtedly be asked to rule on the question of whether an indicted prime minister conforming to government that would be an unprecedented thing in Israel there's a lot of uncertainty here and Netanyahu right now needs to focus on trying to lower people from the center left to try to defect and go to his side we'll see if that happens and here's Daniel Estrin in Jerusalem thanks Daniel sure thing should transgender students be allowed to compete in women's high school athletics that's the question at the center of a lawsuit in Connecticut in some states inclusion means that if someone identifies as a girl she can compete as a girl not everyone though thinks that's fair play Connecticut public radio's Frankie Graziano reports Terry Miller is fast so fast that some girls don't wanna race against her last year she clocked the best time a girl as ever run in the fifty five meter dash at the Connecticut open indoor track and field championships this year well it's complicated hours Miller who is transgender finished third my whole season it was a close any of my personal best but I was still trying to work my way to how I was because that happened I'm not in my group like I was last year so I just kept pushing she was running right next to someone that suing state athletic officials so that Miller can't race against girls anymore her name is Chelsea Mitchell she won the race even though her lawsuit claims the playing field is uneven the focus on getting it started getting dark please Connecticut the state governing association of high school sports allows athletes to compete according to the gender they identify with Mitchell's attorney say that policy is unfair Denise Harley says Miller has an edge because she's quote biologically male the whole reason we have girls sport because biological males have larger muscles greater bone density our hearts along their size and strength given the significant advantage over Karl back at the state open the debate fall somewhere along the intersection of fairness and trans gender participation in athletics Phil Hutchens doesn't have a child running in the fifty five he's here to watch his son compete in a different event recalls a lawsuit appropriate.

"Sat down at a table armed with a powerpoint presentation welcome to this press conference of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to present the special report on global warming of one point five degrees. The presentation was pretty dry but the content would end up making a big splash. The scientists laid out how much better off the world will be if we can limit global warming to one and a half degree. Celsius instead of a longtime international national target of two degrees Celsius. Every bit of extra warming makes a difference. This is climate scientist. Hans auto partner one of the panelists that spoke that day the proportion of the world population exposed to climate induced water shortages would be up to fifty percent less one and a half degree Celsius Celsius or two point seven degrees Fahrenheit would mean hundreds of millions fewer people would face extreme heatwaves up to ten million. Fewer people exposed opposed to the risk of rising seas. 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.

"That song is seamy Liebeck Beth by Shapiro whose new record elephants she co you can find on apple music spotify soundcloud band camp and all the rest I love this record thank if you own hot for introducing me to it and now it's time for our third topic which we are calling boys on TV and here's why we already know the basic facts. I think there are no spoilers here. Though if you're concerned about that then turn this off on Thursday night June twelfth two thousand fourteen three kids were kidnapped from a bus stop outside title town of a lunch food in Gucci on two were sixteen Naphtali Frankel and gala shower and one Yali Fra was nineteen. It was about ten at night in Franklin Char were on their way to their homes for Chabad from Yeshiva Takura Haim where they studied e frock advanced student at Yeshiva Shabby run Roane was on his way home from a visit in Gujrat Zone. A car stopped the kids got in gun. Withdrawn CIA are dialed the police and whispered into his phone. They kidnapped me me and that was the last time the boys were heard. The idea launched a massive search operation brothers keeper it was called and over the next eleven days three hundred and fifty Palestinians were detained including almost all of the leaders of Hamas living in the West Bank on June thirtieth. The bodies of the three boys were found in a field near Hebron eighteen days had passed those eighteen days were days of excruciating worry and anguish for many Israelis and they were also days of excruciating shading hope against hope after the bodies of Frankel and Shah and e frock were found it was said that police and army officers said known almost from the very beginning that if the kids have not survived the night they were kidnapped and that this was kind of an open secret but I didn't know I went to bed each night thinking that they were tied up in a basement somewhere. Maybe maybe about the be found maybe today maybe in time for the next news broadcast. I think a lot of US felt that way. Which is why when the news came the grief it brought was enormous warmest on television you saw people crying on the radio you heard people crying riding on a bus or walking the street the person next to you who is likely to be crying thousands and thousands went to the July first Chris funerals of each of the three boys and watching it on TV? It seemed like every one of the thousands of people who's crying early in the morning on July second. Just the the next day a kid named Muhammad Abu Qadeer Sixteen Franklin Char from the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat was dragged from a stoop outside his house. That's where he was waiting for friends to go to the mosque to pray during Ramadan into a car whereas arms and legs were bound with cable ties and he was beaten with a tire iron. His body body was found by police a few hours later in the Jerusalem forest near chat will look there was doused in lighter fluid and burned forensic detectives actives concluded that he was probably alive when he was set on fire on July sixth suspects were found religious Jews three confessed a Jerusalem shopowner named Yosef Joseph Ben and to yeshiva students whose name whose names have never been revealed because they were minors on September twenty third one hundred and three days after for the first kidnapping the two Hamas members determined to have murdered the Kids Marwan Kawasmi and Amar Abu Aisha were killed in a shootout with idea of soldiers who came to arrest arrest them in the house in Hebron on November thirtieth two thousand and fifteen five hundred sixteen days after they kidnapped Abul Qadeer the two years Sheva students were convicted of murder one sentenced to life in prison the other two twenty one years imprisonment on May third two thousand and sixteen six hundred seventy one days after Abajo deers kidnap bend it was convicted and sentenced to life in prison and an additional twenty years last week on August twelfth one thousand eight hundred eighty seven days after Frankel shower and you frock were kidnapped and murdered and one thousand eight hundred sixty seven days after Kadeer was kidnapped and murdered. HBO released a ten episode Mini Series about all of this it it was created by three Israeli television and Film Makers Guy Levy Yosef Cedar and Tafiq Abu a lot has been written not this series which is no surprise the Hollywood reporter called the show abject misery porn Walla's television reviewer Nadaba Monahan said that it is torture sure some television that will produce Israeli viewers a rare sense of empathy with Palestinians. My friend McGill history professor Gil Troy wrote in the Jerusalem Post. That's a show creates creates false equivalency quote between the two cases of kidnap murder and none of this helped me a bit. We watched all the episodes that we could get a hold of the show so far. That's three episodes that I watched this week and for me. Watching these episodes was painful as any television that I've ever seen in my alive so my questions for you to our. What did you feel while you watched it? What did you think and what should I feel an thinking the the rest of us just my sort of initial? reaction is just so brilliantly done I mean the writing and the production and the quality and really the brilliance of it is how they wove documentary footage into the drama so you know they're not staging a lot of you know big griot scenes they are when they're looking at their individual characters but a lot of the crowd scenes etc a lot of the news events are taken with actual footage edge so you know you don't believe it doesn't feel fake it feels very real and the crater said they did it on purpose because they think that if they had filmed them that people would think that they were changing it exaggerating it you know minimizing it. The acting is insanely brilliant. It's really beautiful. It wouldn't be as painful if it wasn't so beautiful so you know based on the three episodes. I think it's going to be an amazing series. Already is an amazing series my one caveat it's title our boys. If you remember during the period when we were waiting for the kidnapped voice to be found return at Cetera there was a Hashtag bring back our boys the freeze our boys very much always related to the three yeshiva boys and so I think that in giving this series the title our boys it was built with built up the expectation speculation that it was going to delve into the kidnapping and murder of Sheva students. I understand how symbolic it is because the achieve students were our boys Oy and also the comment Abu dear was our boys and the murderers were also understand the symbolism of it and in some ways it isn't a it is a very affective title but I think that it skewed expectations and so I think when people watched it expecting to see sort of the pain in the drama and the story of the kidnapped does she boys and it turns out to be not about that. I think that is problematic but for me. That was really the only issue I had for this series so far of course in Hebrew it's named Hot Narine arime the boys our boys and I believe that that name was chosen specifically to make sure that people didn't have that reaction of thinking about it being about Jewish boys and the Jewish boys were killed and putting aside Mohammed Abdul Qadeer. I think that there's something a little bit shocking in a good way about its name mm-hmm and in Hebrew. I don't know why the English name was chosen to be what it was but I agree with all of that. It's that it's brilliantly done which is why I think that we don't even need to relate to the fact act that it was brilliantly done because it has great emotional force and that's the thing this is. I've I've been on vacation up north while watching this and it's been a wonderful vacation but I have been and so sad because of the three days that I watched this hour long show each time so upset and I feel in now Ohio Oh had what did you experience watching I think before I dove into my opinion I'm going to you know make make a childhood dream happen and shout shout out a friend on the radio WHO who plays in the show his name is Gabby and he was he went to school. He's one year my junior. We were in the drama together and he doesn't amazing job of playing Avi Shale Alba's so shout out to him for going big and you know my second takeaway from our boys is just I mean holy abets I mean I have to. I have to talk about this for two seconds seconds.

"Be bug at Easter clearly. I'm Jay Talk Sir Dog ooh that song is Llama etta of the by facial bureau and now it's time for our second discussion so Ohad Hod all we are saying is give english-speakers chance right yeah okay so let's start by taking a step back for the sake of perspective in the third century German tribe of pirates and raiders called the Saxons attack the shores of Britain and Gaul some settling on the land they conquered in the eighth century a benedictine monk. Thank named Paul the Deacon wishing to distinguish the Saxons who lived on the British. I'll from those who remained in central Europe coined the phrase Anglo Saxons over over the centuries as all sorts of other Europeans especially Norman's Brendan's Flemish Frenchmen Scandinavians emigrated to the British. I'll diluting the Saxon portion of the Anglo population. This term fell into general disuse. Save by historians referring to those late classical and medieval centuries when TRU Anglo Saxon culture sure thrived. It's useless revived in the nineteen fifties to refer to what the Oxford English dictionary defines as quote in Israel an English speaking Jewish rush person. No Shit is actually in there because if you think about it the truest representatives of German British culture before the Norman Conquest are Jews from England Australia Canada South South Africa New Zealand Ireland Scotland Zimbabwe Sash Rhodesia and United States also the adjective Anglo Saxon has allowed generations of Barroom scumbags to compose ostensible pickup lines that involves suggesting that the target of their harassment's is Anglo sexy but I digress in Israel the category anglo-saxon has taken on some real world reality whereas outside of Israel a woman from Pretoria and a woman from Pasadena are generally seen as being of different cultural ultra backgrounds in the Holy Land there generally seen as being of the same cultural background even by themselves. This seems at one in the same time to capture a deep the truth about the cultural contiguity Jewish cultures in far-flung English speaking countries and also to allied deep truth about the cultural distance between Jewish cultures in far-flung English speaking countries according to the Central Bureau of Statistics in two thousand and ten there were about one hundred and twenty five thousand native English speaking immigrants immigrants living in Israel and about one hundred and five thousand Israeli born kids of native English speaking immigrants meaning that a bit under three and a half percent of Israelis are Anglo Saxon accent or descendants thereof the notion that these by now maybe quarter million English speakers have a certain shared identity and shared values is that the foundation of a new political organization called our time is now it was founded by rabbi Dov Lipman who for two years served as a member of Knesset and the centrist not party now a part of the central blue and white list from two thousand thirteen to two thousand fifteen less than a decade after moving to Israel firm Silver Spring Maryland our time is is now does not assume that all anglo-saxons hold the same views about Israeli politics it recognizes and how could it not that immigrants from English speaking countries have included religious allegis and not religious folks straight laced folks hippies Messiahs and all we are saying is give peace a chance knicks its aims to encourage as many native English speakers to get involved the party of their choice right left and center behind this aim. There seem to be too assumptions. The first that English speakers have unique needs that are not yet fully he met within Israel and that said state of affairs will only be improved when politicians realize that english-speakers control enough votes to boot there unresponsive asses out of office Lipman says quote once we have a significant group within these parties than its leaders and Knesset members will have no choice but to hear an address issues of concern from our population and the second that that english-speakers bring from their motherland certain values and attitudes from which Israel stands to benefit save. Perhaps for South African Rhodesia most of the Israeli anglo-saxon grew up in what they perceive as admired and marable democracies with strong civil societies and cultures of open and respectful public discourse in debate and unstated but undeniable axiom of our time is now seems to be that immigrants from places with less fully realized democracies from Russia to to Argentina and also native born Israelis have a thing or two to learn from folks who grew up in the cradle of western democracy. This idea turns up a great many different contexts an English language campaign event until Aviv ahead of city elections last year drew hundreds of people. It was almost certainly the biggest campaign event of the entire election season in any language and Noah fucking the house in it it was introduced by the founder founder of a group of English speakers and Tel Aviv who said we know that we have something that this country desperately needs a tradition of democracy and civilly and political activism. We owe it to the country three to make our voices heard and indeed it was for this reason that a group of American and British emigrants decided to start an English speakers party although in the end they failed to get it off the ground there artisans the thing that this sort of self-congratulation not entirely baseless as some serious academic research has shown native English speakers and Americans most of all are vastly vastly over represented among the founders and heads of NGOs especially environmental coexistence and peace NGOs and educational NGOs. The first greet wave of NGOs was in the nineteen eighties and the history of these early efforts cannot be told without invoking English speaker after English speaker in universities to Anglo Saxons are greatly over over vert represented an art universities and engine of free speech political discourse democratic values at the same time English speakers have never really become an electoral constituency and have never ever become as English speakers a political force which leads to the first question why and then to the question are the growing efforts to try to turn English speakers and their kids into in electoral constituency sensible. Do Brits Cooks Aussies. QE staffers roadies pattern Yang's have some special contribution to make to this country. That ain't no one else going to make think well. I won't use an anglo-saxon accent. When I say my accidents this topic I will say that I call bullshit? I I thought my opinion was going to be unpopular. Ally well first of all look at the numbers and the ridiculously small percentage wise numbers of of English speaking Israelis. I mean you can't even get people to campaign to the Ethiopian. Israeli population which you know numerically is is way above the number of English speakers. I think that English speaking Israelis have made their impact and are making their impact in the areas that we've noted that is in civil society and the NGOs etc definitely to be influential within the parties as individuals in their different camps. I mean living in Rana which is sort of the Mecca of English speakers so I am so aware of the diversity of English speaking population and that nothing really ties us together politically except maybe disliking litter on the sidewalks which Kinda don't think is going to be a prominent issue and you know sort of at the risk of personal attack. You know it wasn't even able to do this himself. He really early wave the banner when he was in Asia teed of I'm going to be the representative English. Speaking Israelis an I'm going to have office hours in the Knesset. Just like the Congress people do and you know he really made a really big effort in the real political world to do this and failed spectacularly. He was dropped down to a point on the list where you wasn't doesn't return to the Knesset for another term and then left the party so you know I just don't see any evidence that this is any kind of a conceivable notion that there's some sort of value in English speakers joining together as a political force but no one has the most experience on the ground with this as a Tel Aviv english-speaking politician who potentially could have campaigned speaking audiences so I am fascinated to hear what you have to say well. I also object to this. I mean I it bothers me at a really visceral level that I've been trying to understand for the last week as I've been pondering this and I haven't fully understood like my own psychology about this really it makes me a little little bit nauseated and part of it is that it seems to me to be infused utterly infused with condescension towards basically hey everybody I mean th the entire country and you and is true. I remember coming up a lot of times. When I'm in groups of Americans there is this sort of feeling of like those people those uncivilized people by whom we mean basically everyone we mean native born Israelis he's and we mean we mean the Russians and we mean Ethiopians and there is a feeling that when one gets.

But it seems like you are reporting that it ended up being really focused on one thing it really ended up being a referendum on prime minister Netanyahu who's been in power for thirteen years. He is really popular in spite of a lot of challenges. He's had their attorney general here recommended that he be indicted for bribery and fraud charges earlier in February now next step. He has a pretrial hearing to see if those charges will stick that will happen in the coming months. His opponents painted him as out of touch with you know, some of the everyday concerns about living here healthcare education infrastructure.

And now talk to me about some of the promises that mister Netanyahu made during this campaign. You report that one of them will have a pretty profound impact on what happens in the region. At the eleventh hour a few days ago, he made a controversial pledge to begin applying Isreaeli sovereignty in parts of the West Bank, which would be a first step to annexation of that territory that would make the creation of contiguous Palestinian state in future. Two state solution nearly impossible and could really change the terms of what possible Middle East peace would look like keep an eye on wsJcom for any updates in the race as well as a response from the Trump administration, which has yet to comment on the outcome.

"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..

"The life of Benjamin Netanyahu has run parallel with the history of the country. He leads Israel's prime minister was born a year after the state was founded in nineteen forty eight. He served as a special forces commando in operations against Israel's enemies and as a soldier in one of the wars in which defended its very existence, his father was an activist for the creation of Israel. His elder brother is one of the country's most venerated heroes in the first episode of our summer series profiling four currently, crucial global leaders. We look at how Benjamin Netanyahu got to where he is and where he thinks he might still be going for better and for worse and opinions on which is which tend to be passionately held. He is the dominant figure of Multan Israeli politics Netanyahu has sought to cast Israel in his own image. Tough blunt, uncompromising to the point of belligerence determine that. No price is too high to pave Israel's security either. If this price has often ended up being paid by Israel's Palestinian neighbors. This is the foreign desk. He is a man who's public presentation views is very something. He believes all he's convinced himself that he believes in them and you and it's very difficult to catch him off guard in any moment. My hills say something that he hasn't really planned to say when express it thought which hasn't been carefully crafted. Even though he committed himself to the tour state solution, he seems to do everything possible to make it impossible. So from that point of view, he is definitely against the two state solution, which means that it's a one state solution, which means that it's either state that's choice, but not democratic or a bi-national state. There is a real caution that on a total lack of complacency around the existence of the state of Israel, he takes sense of for jalousie and volatility into his leadership. If Israel Middle East, however, things might look good. He is. Always looking for the danger that looks around the corner. Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm Andrew Miller on today's show. We'll look at all sides of Benjamin Netanyahu's time at the top of Israel politics. But I sense of Netanyahu the man. I'm joined in the studio by ancho firfer, who writes for the economist and Herat's and is the author of the new biography BB the turbulent life and times of Benjamin Netanyahu and welcome to the program before we talk about Netanyahu's life. And the parallel corset has run to the life of the country. He leads both of which now more or less the same age I wanted to ask about Netanyahu as a human being. You've been a journalist in Israel for many years you you've met him many times. What sense do you actually get him as a person? So every politician you meet, there's a distance between the personal and the public image as politician who's on camera on record on message, and there's the man or the woman who you meet off the record who usually tend to be. Very different, say very different things when they can rely on you that you not quoting them that whatever they say won't be mentioned. Perhaps many years Netanyahu as the old man out in that sense, he's a politician who's very, very similar what he says. It's very similar the way he acts the way he presents his case is extremely similar, whether he's making a speech, whether he's in a television interview, whether he's on the record. And when you sit down with him for a briefing for an off the record chats, he says very similar things that there is headed that some minor differences, but he is a man who's presentation of public presentation of his us is very something. He believes in all, he's convinced himself that he believes in them and you and it's very difficult to catch him off guard in any moment when he's not. When you know when he'll say something that he hasn't really planned to say when he'll express thought which hasn't been carefully crafted. Does he struck? He was one of those politicians of destiny. One of those people who thinks that at some level himself and the state inseparable or indivisible that sort of, you know, Charles de Gaulle sham. The state the state is million so forth that actually encapsulates Antonio perfect Antonio has reached a stage where he sees his own fate and Israel's fate is being entwined..
