"Destroy their It's Ronald Reagan's approach to the old Soviet Union. How cause uprisings? Not to give them tens of billions of dollars let them sell their oil on the open market to support China of all countries as well as Russia to negotiate with Iran to beg Iran beg them Come back to the negotiation table and the reason for all this and it's been written about by people smarter than I about the Middle East is because Biden and and Blinken Sherman the other half wits knit wits and no they want to change the whole approach to the Middle East where are Arab ally countries in Israel no different than all the other countries that that it is a regional regional approach that we have to have and that we can persuade the Islamic Nazi regime in Tehran to participate like nice little terrorists in the region so they're trying to remake the entire Middle East and by making the entire Middle East we may have multiple nations that have nuclear not just power but nuclear weapons as I say I have I don't have all the facts nobody does it's possible to get them because they're doing all this in secret but the Biden administration has been put in the arm to the Netanyahu government now since Biden became or the occupant of the Oval Office they're still a pushing two -state solution which would

The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tells Bloomberg he will not pursue the entire judicial overall originally planned by his government, but he will try to change the makeup of the judge selection committee. I'm still going to give it several months to try to get another consensus. What is it? It would probably be about the composition of the committee that elects judges. I don't think we should move from one extreme where we have perhaps the most activist judicial court on the planet to get it to a point where the legislature or Knesset can just knock out any decision that the court makes. There has to be a balance. That's what we're trying to restore. The exclusive interview comes after months of protests across Israel and volatility on the nation's financial markets. The full conversation with Netanyahu is coming up shortly. Asian stocks are flat at the start of the trading week following mixed signals from Friday's U .S. jobs report.

"Dennis Prager here. Thanks for listening to the daily Dennis Prager podcast to hear the entire three hours of my radio show Commercial free every single day become a member of Prager topia You'll also get access to 15 years worth of archives as well as the daily show prep subscribe at Prager topia calm Hello, my friends, I'm Dennis Prager great to be with you. I hope the feeling is mutual And I assume to a large extent it is because that's why you're tuning in America has been Divided often there always been people if you will on the left people on the right Certainly, there was a division over slavery. That was dramatic to the point of hundreds of thousands of Americans slaughtered in a civil war What is new in the division today There are a number of things and it's a worthy topic Certainly come to the fore because of the indictments or the charges brought against The leading Republican contender and a former president unprecedented actions in the United States Presidented in virtually every dictatorship What is new is that the two sides have a different perspective Have not just a different perspective that's much that's much too mild The two sides have a different perception that's the word I wanted of reality See the north and south did not differ on facts They differed in values, but not on facts We have today not only Values that are diametrically opposed to one another between left and right We we don't even agree and this this is what is the first on reality If you think it is fair For biological men to compete in women's sports. It's not a matter of values Where where where why is this a values issue? This is a reality issue either. It's fair or It's unfair. That's that's a fact either men have an advantage Whether or not they call themselves women or they don't have an advantage whether or not they call themselves women either men who say their women should be put in women's prisons and women's locker rooms or they shouldn't That is not a difference in values that is a difference in reality We perceive reality differently. I read the New York Times editorial defending Jack Smith We don't agree on on reality. It is not again only an issue of values There is a values issue you better have a massive massive reason unprecedentedly serious reason to arrest a former president and the leading contender of the opposition or you are communists or Fascists or any term you wish to use for people who wish to have dictatorial rule in a country There isn't outside of Alan Dershowitz there isn't a liberal let alone a leftist of whom I am Oh, yeah, there is a Jonathan Turley right Jonathan Turley is another liberal And I say that despite the fact that Jonathan Turley attacked me many years ago Bizarre it just shows you how deep this stuff is because he writes a lot of very good stuff He called me a Judeo -Christian fascist. Did you know that? That that was a new term I've been called everything but Judeo -Christian fascist Because we know the history of Judeo -Christian fascism is so long and dark what It's Yes Anyway another by the way, it's another example of we know what they know and they know they don't know what we don't They don't even read our perspective or hear it or watch it. We we have all we know theirs. I read the New York Times How many New York Times readers read the Wall Street Journal editorial page? This is a terrible a terrible day in America, I Wrote 20 years ago that we're having a civil war and I said and I pray it remains nonviolent I'm not sure that this is not an act of violence isn't isn't every arrest an act of violence Now it as I have I wrote many years ago. There's moral violence and immoral violence So you may say it's moral violence arresting people and it usually is But it is violence and if it's not moral You you have Done something that only the Lord knows what it can lead to It's a very very very very bad thing in American life He told pernicious is that the word what was the adjective for the word lies In the indictment that the headline of the New York Times yesterday We'll find it He was let's see This Is the wrong one I want to get today's Column from the new the or the way the New York Times has reported it There we go You should know by the way, this is very distressing Judges signed to Trump Trump federal case Tanya should come shut Ken Has sometimes handed down sentences tougher than the one sought by prosecutors The woman is a left -wing activist That is who the judges the federal judge The federal judge assigned to former President Donald Trump's latest criminal case Has been publicly critical of January 6th as imposed lengthy sentences on Trump supporters Who went into the Capitol I Know one such John strand who's in not only prison but a particularly Severe prison and all he did is video of him. All he did was enter the Capitol These Most of the the vast majority of the people who went to the Capitol that day went to demonstrate Not to insurrect the day they used insurrection I Realized we're entering The realm of propaganda I He's used the Reichstag fire and I was right The German Parliament was burned in 1933 just as Hitler assumed power in Germany and The Nazis used that fire as an excuse to jail opponents and and rule by Dictatorial decree Ever hear of the term state of emergency Yes, that's what they did Should come a former public defender has shown a scrupulous concern for the rights of criminal defendants During the final years of the Trump administration. She repeatedly frustrated Justice Department efforts to accelerate the execution of federal inmates The Supreme Court reinstated the executions she blocked Supreme Court has overturned her Chitkin would oversee a trial into the case Which she hasn't yet scheduled Trump will make his initial appearance in the case Thursday afternoon. That's today, correct? That hearing is expected to be overseen by US magistrate judge Moxilla Upadhyaya Upadhyaya The indictment unsealed on Tuesday Which accuses Trump of criminal scheme of a criminal scheme to stay in power? after his election defeat the reading from the Wall Street Journal has been randomly assigned to Chutkan a 2014 Obama appointee Who was confirmed by the Senate on a 95 to 0 vote Like to know who the five were Who voted against her? She's not inclined to give people involved the benefit of the doubt Said Douglas Berman a professor of criminal law at the Ohio State University Two worlds in one country Gold dealers are a dime a dozen. They're everywhere what sets these companies apart and whom can you really trust? This is Dennis Prager for am fed coin and bullion my choice for buying precious metals when you buy precious metals It's imperative that you buy from a trustworthy and transparent dealer that protects your best interests So many companies use gimmicks to take advantage of inexperienced gold and silver buyers be cautious of brokers offering Free gold and silver or brokers that want to sell you overpriced collectible coins Claiming they appreciate more than gold and silver What about hidden commissions and huge markups Nick Grovitch and his team at am fed always have your back. I trust this man It's why I mentioned him by name Nick's been in this industry over 42 years and he's proud of providing transparency and fair pricing to build trusted Relationships if you're interested in buying or selling call Nick Grovitch and his team at am fed coin and bullion 800 2 2 1 7 6 9 4 American federal .com American federal .com So the judge that is overseeing the Prosecution and I would say persecution of Donald Trump is a left -wing activist She was part of lawyers for Obama She's the person overseeing the trial she's the judge She is regularly handed down sentences in line with or above what prosecutors recommend That is very rare. By the way making numerous statements concerning the seriousness of the attack on the Capitol and the future threat of political violence driven by Anti -democratic sentiments said John Lewis a research fellow at George Washington University's program on extremism This is all reported in the Wall Street Journal The New York Times is livid with regard to Donald Trump and The his lie that the election was dishonest Let's say it was a lie Do you understand that you're allowed to lie except under oath You're allowed to say a lot of horrible things Nazis demonstrated in front of a Georgia synagogue last month and when the police were asked why they didn't stop them they said because they're exercising their free speech and I am a Jew and I agreed with the police If free speech is allowed it allows for terrible speech it even allows for lies. I Am allowed to say the earth is flat. Is that a lie? Can I be arrested if I get a public forum and say the earth is flat? No First of all, sometimes lie is not clear. Sometimes lie is used as a political weapon We're told that we lie by saying that men and women are basically different. That's a lie It's a lie. We're told by the American Medical Association That it is a lie that men have an advantage in sports Right, these are all lies The stabilizing that's right. Okay, you're allowed a lie, but you can't tell a destabilizing lie to Say that this is not the America I grew up in is like saying that it is cold in the North Pole It is not, you know, I do a podcast with a 23 year old young woman Dennis and Julie it's called and you would love it. It's It's quite remarkable. She's quite remarkable. So I have Philosophized over the following question Who has it worse emotionally? young people Who never saw a free America? Or those of us who are old and did see a free America and are watching it disappear. I Don't have an answer to that question Mm Memories are very powerful and can be a source of comfort and they can be a source of distress if the memories are Over I Don't have an answer to that question. She doesn't either She sort of doesn't understand the America that I grew up in. She believes me. She understands the words When I was a kid, I remember this so vividly I grew up in Brooklyn, New York, we would play stickball in the street So, you know the guys would yell at each other and some guy would say something stupid or mean or whatever and somebody would say shut up and That kid would say Hey, it's a free country That was the answer of the guy who said stupid things are even cursed It's a free country. It was built in you could say anything Even things that are wrong or at least perceived as wrong The president of the United States and the leader of the opposition is going on trial Because he said things that the opposition doesn't believe are true The my favorite is Jack Smith wrote in the indictment That Trump knew that it was a lie that what he was saying was a lie Really then why don't we put Donald Trump on a lie detector There was no doubt in my mind that he is a certain That he was defrauded of the election as you are that Of your name. He is as certain of that as you are of whatever your name is This is what we've come to It has been a revelation to me in my older age You know, you think you know a lot especially if you spend your life thinking and writing and talking I Never realized until the last few years How many people are governed by emotions Trump is the perfect example People I respected voted Democrat because they hate Donald Trump It is better to ruin America then vote for a man. I hate I Feeling is another country where this is happening. Well, we'll talk about that in the next segment But that's it people are emotionally driven One of you wanted a lie, here's a lie. I'm about to tell you a lie that the Enlightenment ushered in the age of reason I Wish we were living in the age of reason If we were living in the age of reason forget a Judeo -christian age just the age of reason Donald Trump would not be on trial It is pure undiluted Passion So here's the question Is there a more powerful force than hatred? Another Question I don't know the answer to People are willing to destroy this country because they hate one man That's fascinating All right, we continue To remind you that August is fundraising month for PragerU. Please make a donation during the break a Meliorate thank you amelia rate. Excellent Sean Sean has a slight OCD problem, but it's very slight If you realize what I've accused Sean of white supremacy OCD My guests are true experts on the Middle East they're in from Israel Felice and Michael Friedson, I've known them for years. They're wonderful human beings and they're honest You know if I didn't ask you personally and I'm not even sure now I know your politics Which is such a credit to you to you both So Israel has been wracked with unprecedentedly large Demonstrations, so I'm curious you heard me you were in the studio and I said, oh Maybe you didn't might have been right before you came in I said America is now one country and two worlds. Is that true for Israel? Is it that severe? Israel is fighting Internally, I'm not so sure that they're trying to Undo what was done as much as they're seeing openings to pick up the power that they might be able to get their hands on so each side is looking for the mechanics of Functioning in a government where they say things are unconstitutional and yet there's no Constitution or laws Go through on the way to being approved as a law of the country Goes through a system whereby somebody will yell it's unconstitutional and have to go through the Constitution committee But yet there's no Constitution. Yeah, that's a phenomenon I will admit but I am curious about the depths of the division what I described about America Do you would you say that about Israel today? It's two countries or two worlds People won't talk about it. It's the kind of discussion that certain things are off limits nobody wants to be accused of doing something because they don't like the sardine where the Ashkenazim where they're taking those kind of intranasian battle Decree you have the phenomenon and I I I shudder to ask the question Do you have the phenomenon that we have in America and I'm telling you it is widespread of Children, I don't mean five -year -olds or ten -year -olds I mean 20 and 30 year olds who will not speak to a parent because of how they voted It's starting to seep in that's what I was about to add and you are beginning to see this happen. Really? Yes Yes, so this has been very divisive But you know Dennis I have to say there are issues here that are far more serious. You're looking at Iranian nuclear proliferation Imagine around October November it could happen and Israel has to go solo Something kicks up off the war. There's been all kinds of tests on borders with Israel whether it's Lebanon It's all of Iran's proxies and all of a sudden you have reservists right now that are saying that we're not going to show up Because of the judicial reforms and we're talking about 10 ,000 or more reservists. We're talking about Air Force pilots We're talking about those that manned drones we're talking about intelligence officers and you can read this every day This is getting to the heart of the nation so I ask you that even if Prime Minister Netanyahu may be correct and if even if you agreed with Prime Minister Netanyahu in terms of the fact of how judicial reforms should play out and when Sometimes the timing for the sake of a nation's security Might be more important and I'm throwing that out because I think people sometimes stop short and don't look at the big picture So even if Netanyahu and his supporters are right It's not it may not be the time because of the security issue. It's one one I have to admit I read that there were people members of the Air Force for example who threatened this and I couldn't believe it because Iran doesn't care if you're pro or anti Netanyahu pro or anti judicial reforms They want to kill you like the Nazis did not distinguish between left -wing and right -wing Jews secular and religious Jews They don't see it that way. They are willing to jeopardize Israel These reservists because of politics. Yes That's how bad it's gotten. So I think that Israel is at a very dangerous moment Where there's such a discomfort look you have high -tech Israel with many of the techies taking their companies already and moving out Now I hear it's happening now too with the doctors and I think that's probably less so but when you have two industries That are so vital to the state of Israel. Then you have to ask yourself why now? You have to ask yourself if you're an activist in Netanyahu's camp, yes you do So the question that many are asking is why now Well, the opportunity presented itself now Yeah Because he won with the elections were coming and going coming and going and finally you got a chance to put the numbers together Right. What's what has people? Pounding their heads against the wall is wondering why when the For example, we're now at something like 30 or 29 consecutive weekends of multi tens of thousands of people marching in the streets We fly in an airplane headed to Israel and we hear the conversations like oh, we'll meet you after the demonstration Or you know, I'm coming to visit Israel I may not go to the Western Wall this time, but I'm not going to miss the demonstration on Saturday night it's become the culture of the country and as it spread each sector within the nation is putting their hat in the ring to be the deciding factor of pushing the Numbers over the top. I guess you'd say what do the supporters of the current situation? Of the the anti -netanyahu folks, what is their argument with regard to the Supreme Court? That they should be allowed to rule on anything without reference to any Constitution Well, I give the this Constitution that aspect of it has fascinated me free free decades Now the idea that when they say it they believe they're talking about something being unconstitutional But they don't take the next step to describe how it becomes unconstitutional because that's their opinion That's why we have what's called the reasonable yes, that's that the reasonableness clause Yeah, all right, we're gonna be back in a moment Folks two great countries are in trouble That's the bottom line the US and Israel to democratic The editors of the editors of the media line org a source of non -biased news about the Middle East Michael and Felice Fritzen are in town from Israel and What they're describing? I mean we have not reached the point where we have Members of the armed forces taking a political position and saying they they won't show up That's I have to say that's that's scary and we're not threatened with existential annihilation like Israel is If these people don't show up a Hesitation is everything and if they're not practicing it's a big problem What is their what is their statement This is not a country worth defending if we don't get our way on the on judicial reform That's basically this the gist of it if you will leave that part of the imagination, but clearly that's what they're saying It's not a democracy anymore and because it will cease to be a democracy if these So if this this notion it will cease to be a democracy That's what they say here on the left.
Caroline Glick: A Showdown in the Israeli Supreme Court
"Knesset our parliament and so what the Supreme Court is doing by having this hearing is they're setting up Israel for a civil war effectively because if they if they if they abrogate this law then what they're saying is that there are no limits on their their power that the rule of law doesn't limit their power that no law limits their power that they get to decide the rules of the game for the government for the elected branches of Israeli governance the government and the effort and they also get to decide the limits of their power for which they accept zero based on whatever they feel like they're just are leaving the mothership and if this goes through you know it's going to be very difficult to call Israel a democracy because we will actually just be officially a judicial tyranny so that's starting tomorrow and it's about what is it called when a when a president when a prime minister is infirm and capable of carrying out his duties so the purpose of the legislature was always to say that you know if you're struck by a stroke like Ariel Sharon was or you know you're in a coma whatever or then you obviously can't fulfill the office and you have to be removed from office but our Attorney General wants to remove Benjamin Netanyahu from office and so she was trying to expand the definition based on nothing and so the the connect that went very clear went to quickly amend the existing law to make it clear that she couldn't just out the Prime Minister she because didn't like the way he was behaving and so they they limited it so that they that you can only ask the Prime Minister from office if he's medically incapable of performing his duties. And the Supreme Court is going to be adjudicating this tomorrow
A highlight from Former V.P. Mike Pence on Putin's threat to Poland and Biden's interference in Israeli politics
"Welcome to today's podcast, sponsored by Hillsdale College, all things Hillsdale, hillsdale .edu. I encourage you to take advantage of the many free online courses there. And of course, to listen to the Hillsdale dialogues, all of them at hughforhillsdale .com or just Google Apple, iTunes, and Hillsdale. Welcome back, America. I'm Hugh Hewitt, joined by former Vice President Mike Pence. Mr. Vice President, welcome back to the Hugh Hewitt Show. Hey, good to be with you, Hugh. Thanks for having me on. Well, I want everyone to go to mikepence2024 .com if they want to support you, if they want to learn about the campaign. We'll come back to the campaign in a second. But I'm not mistaken, Mr. Vice President, you and the former president are the only two people running for office who have ever received the daily brief, who understand, had all the clearances you could. So I want to ask you three national security questions this morning, beginning with the threat that Vladimir Putin made in the company of Lukashenko, the dictator of Belarus, that any attack on Belarus would be an attack on Russia. And then the Belarusian leader made the claim that the Wagner people in Belarus are wanting to go to Warsaw. What would be the obligation of the United States in the event that Wagner, Belarus, or Russian troops attacked Poland? Well, there's no question what the obligation would be under Article 5 of the NATO treaty. And that would be required to support Poland, we'd be required to be involved militarily. It's one of the reasons why I've said many times, I mean, Joe Biden has done a terrible job explaining what our interest is in Ukraine. He keeps giving these gauzy speeches about democracy. And for all the world, it sounds like another campaign speech and our interest there. And the reason why we should continue on an increasing basis to give the Ukrainian military what they need to repel the Russian invasion is because we never want to see the day that the Russian military, whether it's a Wagner group in Belarus or otherwise, crosses the border of a NATO country where our troops would be required to fight. I mean, that's how you get peace through strength, is by living out the Reagan doctrine, which always said, if you're willing to fight the communists on your grounds with your soldiers, we'll give you what you need to fight them there. So we don't have to fight them. And yet there are too many voices in our party that are sounding the retreat. They're willing to let Putin keep the land grab that he's made in Eastern Ukraine, willing to make promises. I heard my former running mate has announced over the weekend that he's willing to promise that Ukraine will never be in NATO. Look, in my opinion, the only thing Putin will understand is strength and providing those courageous fighters in Ukraine what they need to to repel the Russian invasion is the fastest way to security and preventing the day that American forces are actually required to go into battle in Europe again. What do you think Lukashenko and Putin are doing here? The Telegraph calls it a setup for a false flag operation or is it just mind games? Yeah, look, I would hardly ever counsel Hugh Hewitt on foreign policy, but you and I both know the only thing you can know for sure about anything coming out of Russia is you don't know for sure. Okay, well said. Nothing is as it seems. When you find out that after Ferguson does this supposed coup against Putin, now we found out in the last week that they apparently met a couple days later and had a conversation and the whole thing could have just been a put -up job for Putin to flush out his enemies in his own government. I wouldn't have put it past him. I do like what was once said by another presidential candidate. He said he looked into Putin's eyes and he didn't see his soul. He saw KGB. That's who you're dealing with and so nothing is as it seems in the acolyte state of Belarus that I just wouldn't trust him as far as I could throw him and that's why we just need to stay strong in this effort and continue to demand that the Biden administration stop dragging their feet on providing arms in Ukraine, which they've been doing for the last year and a half. Give those people what they need. They can win this war and secure the peace of Europe and the security of our country. Now Vivek Ramaswamy, who you'll be sharing a stage with on Friday at the Iowa GOP Lincoln and with all the other candidates are going to have their speeches in Iowa, Vivek was throwing shade on NATO this weekend on Fox News Sunday. Meanwhile, the US and 13 allies were holding a record -setting military exercise in Australia. It seems to me that this might be a time for us to expand our alliances, Mr. Vice President, not sever them. Well, we'll be strengthening our alliances. The last thing that we ought to do is try and secure peace in Ukraine by rewarding Vladimir Putin's naked and brutal invasion into that country by giving him the land and giving him promises never to have Ukraine be a part of NATO. Look, and this has everything to do with the wider world, Hugh. I mean, there's no question in my mind that if we end up capitulating to Putin's aggression, that will only embolden President Xi in his military ambitions in the Asia Pacific. And I just think this is one of those moments where we learned hard lessons in the first half of the 20th century where America, we thought we could hang back. We thought we could hang back within our borders and watch as the world became more unstable and unfurled. And we learned hard lessons than having to come into the fight, both in World War I and especially in World War II. And we won those fights for freedom, but we've secured the peace now for three quarters of because a century we've been willing to stand strong. We've been willing to be the arsenal of democracy. And if I'm president of the United States, I promise you we're going to live out that commitment of being leaders of the free world. And let me also say, I had a sporting debate on stage about a week or so with a former Fox News host that got some play on the Internet. I just don't think we have to choose between solving problems here at home, which is the economy that's failing, the border crisis, the crisis in energy, the crime wave in our cities. I don't think we have to choose between solving problems here at home and being the leader of the free world. We can do both. And anybody who says we can't has a pretty small view of the greatest nation on Earth. Now, Mr. Vice President, third, I'm playing rapid fire national security, but a lot happened this weekend. Right now they are voting in the Israeli Knesset on the reform of the Israeli Supreme Court. Got nothing to do with America. It's an internal Israeli domestic issue. Yesterday, President Biden told Israel to stop, slow down and not do that. And Tom Friedman, one of the most extraordinary columns ever in The New York Times, telling the president to address the dear President Biden that the October 1973 intervention by Richard Nixon to save Israel is what he's facing right now. He has to save Israel by getting by involved speaking the truth. What do you make of the intervention of an American president into the internal domestic politics and policy and judiciary of an ally? Look, I said many times and I was at Christians United for Israel a week ago, Hugh, and I was honored to receive some recognition there, Defender of Israel Award. I was humbled by that. Look, I was a part of the most pro -Israel administration in American history, I always would say. And I will tell you, if I'm president of the United States, if the world knows nothing else, the world will know this. America stands with Israel. And this preoccupation of Democrats, which literally goes back decades of trying to micromanage what's happening in the domestic politics in Israel, is wrongheaded. And it undermines a clear message to one of the most dangerous parts of the world of our commitment to our most cherished ally. I reject it categorically. I'm a great admirer of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He's absolutely determined to see this this court reform through. And I think we ought to let Israel be Israel, let them sort these things out domestically. And our position should just be to always give them what they need to defend themselves, by themselves, and to make it clear in the region, in the world, that America stands with Israel.

Dr. Michael Oren Describes the Origin of His New Book
"Manifesto. Why now? What's the origin of this book? The origin of this book started about three o 'clock in the morning, five years ago, when I was the deputy minister to the prime minister, the same prime minister, Netanyahu. Often we had conversations in the middle of the night because Israeli politicians don't sleep. Our Knesset session's gone all night. We inherited this horrible institution from you guys. It's called a filibuster. And then often Mr. Netanyahu likes to talk about books, and I would come down and talk to him. And as we say in vernacular, we would schmooze into the wee hours. And one night we had this conversation about our future. And the conversation went like this. We're so bogged down in our daily crises, and look how many crises we have right now, a crisis over the reform, a crisis over terror from Judea and Samaria, a crisis with the Iranians, a crisis with the Biden administration, so many different crises that we never get a chance to think about tomorrow. And not just tomorrow, we don't think long term. And I said to the prime minister, why don't we create a state commission that will look at Israel's future in every aspect, social policy, educational policy, foreign policy, Palestinians, Jews, Americans, everybody. Let's do it. And it's going to be a huge undertaking, but it'll be worth it. So he got very excited and gave me the green light to create this commission. Create a commission like that, you have to go through a lot of legal acrobatic skills or permissions. It took a year. And of course, once all the permissions were granted, the government fell.

What is the latest on Netanyahu's corruption trial?
"Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu is charged with fraud breach of trust and accepting bribes in three separate scandals, involving powerful media moguls and wealthy associates. The trial resumption comes after a wave of protests against his government's plans to overhaul the judicial system, critics say that Netanyahu's plan to restructure the courts is a way to open an escape route from his trial, claims he dismisses as untrue, with the trial now resuming a top police investigator is testifying the defense will likely try to poke holes in the way the police carried out its investigation. Future witnesses will include more high profile Israeli politicians whose testimony could embarrass and further tarnish the premier's image. I'm Karen Chammas

Israel has weathered a lot of storms, but we're talking about right now is that within Israel, the woke forces, the globalist Antichrist forces since we don't have time. And I can't say it anymore, any more completely than that. So let's just sum up that the woke loony Antichrist forces within Israel are trying to destroy Israel. We have Netanyahu and others trying to fight against that. It has come to a head. It hasn't come to a head in the United States. We're still in the middle. We're still, you know, but it's not like it's come to some pinch point, some trigger point. But it hasn't Israel. And that's clear, and you didn't know that, 40 years ago, and you didn't know that a few months ago. I didn't know four weeks ago. I found out four weeks ago. Right. You didn't know that. Also, we know from without Iran is on the verge of getting what Obama and AOC have finally hoped, Iran could get something to murder Jews. Isn't that probably it may, they'll have a nuclear weapon. The first time in history, they'll have it in May probably or June of the latest. Right. And so everybody who voted for Obama, who hates Trump, you're part of this, folks. You can repent or you can just ride this to hell because this is as evil as it gets. Wiping out Israel. And so now in history, here we are, here we are. It's happening. So this is all happening. So if you don't know anything but that, that gives you a reason to want to fast and pray for Israel. So
Mike Bickle Describes the Tumultuous Situation in Israeli Politics
"What you're listening to today is my conversation with my friends Ken fish and Mike bickle about a lot of amazing stuff, we recorded it on Kenneth fish's podcast, but I said, it's so important. I want my audience to hear it. You're my audience, and I want you to hear it. And you have been hearing it. And I hope you will continue to hear it. Because it's fascinating. You still have to give us the short version of when you say judicial reform. What is the, what is the pinch point here? What is the issue? What do we mean by judicial reform and why could it lead to stable? I can say it real quick. There's a 120 members in the Knesset, like the U.S. Senate. We got the hundred. They got a 120. You have to have 51% of the 120 to have a government coalition to be in power. If you lose 51%, if you go down to 49, then they have another vote and they get another select England. They don't wait every four years like America. When you lose the coalition, then you lose your government. Got it. And so they've come back to Netanyahu. I think this is his third term and the kind of intense religious people all call him the I'll call him the rabbi guys. That's not the fact we're indeed. The real conservative orthodox Jews, I don't know how many are in the 120, but they went to Netanyahu and said, we demand these things to happen to change the Supreme Court or we're going to back out of your government and you're not going to be the prime minister anymore. And so I don't know how many of those I'm guessing 5 or ten of them because Netanyahu has 64. He needs 61 votes. He's got 64. If they pull out, he's no longer prime minister.
Israeli protests of legal overhaul show no signs of slowing
"Mass protests continue, but Israel's government won't scrap plans to overhaul the judiciary. Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu may have paused reform plans for now, but protesters are still turning up in numbers. Weekly protest organizers say they will put pressure until the plants are completely thrown out. Appearing on NBC's meet the press and asked about public anger. Netanyahu insists judiciary reform is needed. I look for a broad consensus on the judiciary. Every democracy, including your own, has continuous tension between the judiciary and the executive or the legislative. That's happening in America. It's happening in France. It's happening in Israel. It's a natural tension of trying to keep the balance between the three branches of government. Currently, on trial on corruption charges, the plan could give Netanyahu and his government allies final say in appointing judges and see parliament gain authority to overturn the Supreme Court.

"Today. The country's main airport stopped departures for hours, employees at Israel's biggest port stopped working, and more than two dozen Israeli mayors even went on a hunger strike. Parts of the country were completely shut down, including transportation, universities, and restaurants, after the country's largest trade union announced a historic strike. The union called off that strike after Netanyahu said the legislation would be paused, but threatened another one, quote if the prime minister returns to aggressive legislation. Now the timing could be a bit awkward here for Netanyahu who was supposed to participate in a virtual summit for democracy hosted by President Biden on Wednesday of this week. Here's how President Biden spoke about the quest to protect and strengthen democracy at the last summit that in December of 2021. Here in the United States, we know as well as anyone that renewing our democracy and strengthening our democratic institutions requires constant effort. American democracy is an ongoing struggle to live up to our highest ideals and the heel our division. How words like that will echo through this moment for Netanyahu for Israel and for the U.S. Israeli relationship is something to watch in the days ahead.

"netanyahu" Discussed on CNN Political Briefing
"In his country, prime minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu pushes the pause button on his controversial judicial reforms. Israel, which, as you know, is the United States closest ally in the Middle East. And in large part, that relationship is that because of Israel's democratic values. So it is odd at the very least. To see what is happening in Israel at this very moment. When U.S. president Joe Biden constantly constantly talks about the threat of authoritarianism to democracy around the world, and that he sees his presidency as an effort to push back on that threat. And spread the democratic values that the United States holds so dear. Around the world. And yet, what we're seeing play out inside of America's closest ally in the Middle East in Israel is a real battle for what it means to be a democracy and hold these democratic values above all else. Prime minister Netanyahu is no stranger to controversy or to political divides in his country. This is a man who's been at the center of Israeli government and politics for decades. But he has never seen anything like what is currently playing out in his country in response to some of the far right reforms that he and his government have put forth. And today, Netanyahu buckled to that pressure that he is seeing in the streets when he announced a delay to move swiftly this week to try and enact the reforms as it relates to the judiciary. Out of national responsibility, out of the desire to prevent the rift in the nation, I decided to suspend the second and third reading of the law in this session of the Knesset to give time to try and reach the same broad agreement. In preparation for the legislation during the next Knesset. Either way, where we'll bring a reform that will restore the balance that was lost between the authorities while preserving and I would add even in strengthening the rights of the individual. Now there have been protests happening in Israel for months against these sweeping reforms to the Israeli legal system. But they reached a boiling point after Netanyahu fired his defense minister on Sunday who spoke out against this legislation. That development also sparked a rare moment in U.S. diplomacy, which is that The White House started scaling up its rhetoric, involving this situation. And weighing in more heavily, at least rhetorically, on the domestic affairs of a foreign ally. That is not something we usually see the United States government do, but that is something that this Biden White House has begun to ramp up in recent days. As for President Biden, we still have not heard him speak about the matter publicly, but his White House points to a phone call he had with Netanyahu more than a week ago now where The White House says Biden urged the prime minister of Israel to find a compromise on his planned judicial reforms. Here's how White House press secretary karine Jean Pierre responded to the news in Israel today. So we welcome this announcement as an opportunity to create additional time and space for compromise. And we continue to strongly urge Israeli leaders to find a compromise as soon as possible. Democratic societies are strengthened by checks and balances and fundamental changes to a democratic system should be pursued with the broadest possible base of popular support. And so that's what we're going to continue to call for. A U.S. official told CNN that President Biden is likely to have another phone call with Netanyahu in the coming days, but the timing remains fluid because the administration doesn't want to be viewed as trying to dictate the path ahead for another country. And in recent years, in American politics, we've seen Israel and the U.S. relationship with Israel actually become a dividing line between Republicans and Democrats in American political life. You saw evidence of that just earlier this month when more than 90 House Democrats wrote to President Biden urging him to come out publicly and strongly condemn Netanyahu's judicial proposals. Now, Netanyahu believes that he and his government received a mandate from voters in the November election last November to pass these reforms. So what would they actually do? Well, Netanyahu's bills would essentially weaken the country's Supreme Court. It would give parliament the control over appointing judges and the ability to override Supreme Court decisions with a simple majority. Critics say the legislation would weaken the Supreme Court and the government's overall system of checks and balances, leading to the beginning of the end of Israel's democracy. Israel's president, Isaac kurzak, serving in what is mostly a ceremonial role over there and an opponent to Netanyahu's judicial reforms had this to say a bit earlier in the controversy. Whoever thinks that the real Civil War of human lives is a limit that it will not reach, has no idea. Precisely now, in the 75th year of the State of Israel, the abyss is within touching distance. However, Netanyahu and his supporters who believe in these reforms have accused the Supreme Court of overreach and elitism. That was the argument Netanyahu put forth in an interview airing tonight on pierce Morgan uncensored. The balance of three, the three branches of government says that you have to have three branches that are balanced. In Israel you have like one big trunk, the judiciary. That's what's developed with two little twigs on the side. That's not democracy. Netanyahu also defended some of his plans by pointing out countries like the United States have politicians who control which federal judges are appointed and approved. Now, this is a series of bills the Netanyahu is trying to push through the government. One already passed last week. That says, only the prime minister himself or two thirds of the cabinet can declare the leader unfit for office. Critics say that part of his reforms is just a way to protect Netanyahu from being removed, who is just to remind you currently on trial for fraud, breach of trust and bribery. The prime minister denies any wrongdoing whatsoever. But as I mentioned, it was these unprecedented protests in the streets of Israel that prompted Netanyahu to shift gears

No, it's Moshe has an he's been on this committee for 5 years and was supposed to serve as a voting member for two more years. And he's also a professor and economics professor in the country.

And he actually put some more interesting figures on some of the policies that are being proposed by the Netanyahu administration, seeing 20 to $30 billion of outflows in a potential brain drain from the tech sector. Let me just remind you what the government wants to do. They want the parliament to have more influence over who is appointed to the high court positions in Israel. They also want fewer checks by that judiciary system on the legislator and critics, including the Texas tech sector luminaries at Hasan himself saying that this would erode the judicial independence and important way that would really hurt investor confidence in the country.

Let's get to the commodities front because oil has steady traders wait for signals on the state of Chinese crude demand after the nation ditched COVID zero investors are also tracking the impact of tighter curves on Russian energy flows imposed by the European Union and the U.S. following the invasion of Ukraine. Let's head out to astronomy. He's the head of commodities ESG and EM research of MUFG. Asan, I mean, I really want to get past all the reasons why crude oil is going to stay arranged bound in the next three to four months. I want to look for the catalyst that's going to drive this meaningfully to the upside or meaningfully to the downside, which can't by you. Well, thanks. You said I was being more constructive and bullish going forward. I think look, I mean, prices have staged a notable rally of the two day short shop liquidity at the start of the year. I think the global macro backdrop from headwind is now certainly moving towards tailwinds. I think three key drivers for us in the last 6 months from the downside are beginning to turn. And that is Russian oil, the coupling is starting to show in the data. I think Chinese mobility indicators are beginning to bottom out. And we are seeing signs that buoyancy of the U.S. high frequency numbers are raising the prospects of the soft landing. So I think that really reinforces the things like the weakening of the dollar, which is again acting as a tailwind. So all the forces are really showing that I think once we're out of the initial volatility of the headwinds as we go forward, we're in the camp of being constructing a bullish and our forecasts are pointing to a $112 by the first quarter of this year. That's a very bullish construct and it's certainly chimes with the messages that we received all last week. When we were in Davos, but the other contingent part of this narrative is what happens next from Russia. We heard Russia talking about potentially cutting off output or shutting in iPad by 500 to 700,000 was Novak, the deputy prime minister said, was insignificant. A do you see that as a material risk and B? They're skating on thin I said OPEC plus, do they have the ability to fill that gap like that? So I think in terms of the first question, yeah, I think the next Catholics would certainly be the prospects of the EU sanctions on the product side on the 5th of February. And I think certainly when that comes in the force, both sides will see significant I think the first in terms of European side, we're talking no less than 50% of total diesel imports are coming from Russia, so certainly they'll need to be found from elsewhere. And I think certainly yes, these sanctions might rush and I think they will need to source these elsewhere. I think if you're a serious about this embargo, the Russia will have a significant time in terms of trying to find new sources of it so often exports. Now, I think in terms of its role in OPEC, I think the rhetoric has been continuous that it remains a valued member more for longer term. So we don't see that changing much both from Russia within Russia as well as from the other bank members. I would like to put on your EM cap, which is sort of the other front you spent a considerable time on. And talk about Kuwait, where we did see the resignation of the cabinet. It's the 6th time in about two years. Does that put at risk any of the projections you have for the country in terms of growth in terms of momentum off the back of resilient energy prices in 2023? Yeah, thanks. So I think look, I think growth remains positive. I think funding leads needs are very low in Kuwait but certainly I think the political paralysis and the need for showing conviction in terms of policy execution is something that credit rating agencies, for instance, have continuously echoed when it comes to Kuwait. But yeah, I think as the new year turns, we always hope for signs of optimism on create but certainly I think the reforms is of focus and passing a dead law over the

Let's check back in with Juliette a person of course who has had a blue check mark for a very long time. She joins us from our Singapore studio Jules. Yeah, you're getting paid if you need to use it. Well, let's have a look at what we are seeing particularly in the Japanese yen because we were talking earlier about the fact that it is rising on potential intervention speculation if we do see power pushback against a pivot, but we've also been hearing from governor Corona speaking in the last couple of minutes in parliament and the finance minister Suzuki as well. Corona saying the recent yen drop is rapid and not desirable for the economy. We've heard that before. And Suzuki is saying The Weeknd has both positives and negatives and there is no doubt that a weekend is pushing up inflation in Japan. Elsewhere we are continuing to watch this reopening theme in Hong Kong and Shana drive markets higher both those markets higher on the lunch break and adding to a broadly positive session for Asian equities rising for a third day ahead of the fed. We also had the PBOC paint a fairly positive picture about the economy Egan saying it remains broadly on track and he hopes the property market can achieve a soft landing use of. And what about analysts who are saying China's reopening speculation rally has legs? Yeah, well, of course, this is the key, isn't it? If we do see some kind of concrete confirmation that they will reopen and there is a lot of speculation that that could happen in March. That is going to be the major momentum for equity markets. But you be saying the rally, unlikely to be sustained, unless we do see some concrete signs, they say most of the momentum we saw in afternoon trade yesterday is really due to the fact that Chinese stocks are so undervalued. EI says that the timeline is likely going to be after the NPC meeting and who on security is saying sectors like food beverages and social services will rebound strongly if we do see some concrete confirmation of a reopening. Let's put the board and have a look over the last couple of years, which is not even as long as the pandemic has been going on just how much of a headwind you have seen to these markets in China, the H share index down some 47%, the CSI 300 off by more than 22% and a 9% decline in the offshore yuan. So very much investors hoping that we will see some signs of a reopening and turn these assets around Yusuf. Yeah, I watering last is their double digits for some of the China equity indexes.

It's the first time in an Arab party has actually agreed to join an Israeli governing coalition and this will secure additional finance. For the Arab sector of Israel. I think that will be very important, so you'll see some domestic progress on the foreign policy front. I think it's likely they're just going to hold the line. The current prime minister Naftali Bennett, is a right wing politician agrees with The vast majority of Netanyahu's former policies, and so he'll be opposed to the Iran nuclear deal will probably be less than excited to enter into negotiations with the Palestinian Authority. About two state solution issues, So I think you're probably going to see things to sort of hold steady while they begin to focus on things at home. The only thing that I'll just stay here is, of course, every time an Israeli government tries to focus on things at home, that's usually when things erupt abroad. And I would expect there to be some bumpy road ahead well, and none of us None of us wishes any more strife in that area of the world at all at the same time to put it most pointed way is this coalition gonna survive the first Rock? I think it's fired from Gaza into Israel. Well, that's actually I think probably the most important question to ask because you have the wrong party headed by months, or Abbas. He may be opposed to Israel, striking back at Hamas rocket You also have the participation of the very left wing pro peace Meretz party, which also could have problems. Uh, with an Israeli operation. You know, look that said, if you know future conflicts are short in duration, much like the last one was, which was only 11 days. It's possible that the Israeli government could survive it. But certainly I think that could be where some of the greatest differences of opinion could emerge. Could this coalition government have a different relationship with President Biden? I'm not saying the U. S government because goodness knows President Trump was very close with BB Netanyahu by all appearances, But I did notice that it took a while for B. B. Netanyahu and President Biden to talk after inauguration and by all reports, President Biden called Mr Naftali right away. Yeah, That's right. I mean, look. Part of the problem with with Biden in Netanyahu is that Netanyahu was the interim prime minister and it was in the middle of an election cycle. And it was a bit awkward for the president to call. Uh, Netanyahu when he was not the recognised prime minister. He was standing up for election in March, and it didn't want to look As if the United States was, you know, putting its fingers on the scale, so to speak, and didn't want to give Netanyahu will boost. There's also, of course, the history of these two men, and they had squared off before during the Obama years. In particular over the Iran nuclear deal, which the United States may be heading back into. The Israelis oppose that vehemently. But I do think that it's fair to say that the White House is probably welcoming a change at the top that there is an opportunity to reset relations. The only caveat that I would probably point out here is that then it will be no more warm to the idea of the Iran nuclear deal, And it could be that within a week or two. If the United States enters back into that deal, you have a new critic in Jerusalem, who will have just as A serving of rhetoric as Netanyahu. I noticed that Mr Netanyahu on his way out the door gave a very I would say inflammatory speech, likening the United States failing to do something Iran to FDR failing to bomb the railroads around Auschwitz. Do we expect this new coalition to be as adamant about Iran? And how is that going to sit with Mr Biden? Mr. Biden does apparently want to get a new deal with Iran. Yeah, he does, And and it's not sitting well in Israel to to put it mildly. Look, I think that one of the reasons why Netanyahu was able to stay honest prime Minister for 12 years and why he commanded so much respect inside the Israeli system is that he did take a very principled stand on the Iran nuclear deal. Most Israelis think it's a bad idea. Of course, Iran has vowed to destroy Israel on multiple occasions. And the idea of giving that regime tens or even hundreds of billions of dollars would probably not bode well for Israel, short term or long term, So the Israelis are very alarmed by this, and it's for that reason that they will oppose it. It will be safe for for Bennett to oppose it as well, thanks to Jonathan Schanzer Foundation for Defense of Democracies coming up one of President Clinton's transportation secretaries explains what the United States needs to do for infrastructure.

"netanyahu" Discussed on The Promised Podcast
"Go home The answer to netanyahu revolution while this was going on hundreds maybe thousands gathered outside the prime minister's residence in jerusalem to express their support for netanyahu and their gratitude with signs reading. Thank you b. B and we are with you netanyahu. Those last moments as prime minister. And beyond the netanyahu remained a russia moon sort of figure to some a man who brought israeli democracy. Low up breaking point two others a man who brought the country to economic diplomatic and Logical heights that would have been unthinkable without him. Usually you talk about leader's legacy only after she or he had left the political stage shuffling off to some quite place to write memoirs. This is not the case for prime minister. Netanyahu if we are to believe him still has his brightest accomplishments ahead of him but still. This is a moment so before we have a chance to see how how story ends and before time offers its wisdom and perspective. Let's ask as a summer of twenty twenty one first draft of history twelve consecutive years as prime minister and more than fifteen years overall. What is benjamin netanyahu's legacy allison. What do you think well. There's you know a lot of A lot of aspects of it. I'll mention to and then all at no continue The two i can think of which i guess i can't really care one is definitely negative and the other is sort of negative the idea of sanctioning hateful speech and putting a kosher stamp on On the far far right the communist movement by encouraging them to go into the mainstream israeli politics and you know in his own interest You know like a really poisoning of the well. I think in terms of in terms of speech you know no. He wasn't out there cheering. Like yeah. you know ben gears right. Not saying it himself. But by supporting these figures entrance into the political mainstream and by not specifically condemning things. They said he did put a stamp on it. And you know. The the flag march was Was a couple of days ago. And when you saw the young people chanting in the streets in public out. Loud death to arabs for fun during their nationalist flag march. I really do feel like that's part of his legacy. That that is is somehow acceptable. I'm not saying. It didn't before netanyahu but it took up a place in the mainstream. That wasn't there before. And i think you know he cultivated it or used it For i'm not saying he necessarily agreed with but promoted it and allowed it to To flourish because it served his political interest one aspect and the second one. And i'm not an original and saying this People have noticed the set in a macro sense Israel's growing and thriving economically during his twelve years in office despite the fact that he didn't inch at all towards any kind of peace accommodation with the palestinians sort of proved the point that he's been saying over and over again and that he believes the the world will grow weary of the conflict. And therefore you know the the s people are wrong. That israel can grow thrive and And and succeed including in In developing these diplomatic agreements with the wider arab world without doing anything to accommodate the palestinian side. So well you know that. That is definitely a part of his part of his legacy. You some people view that as a positive as some people view most people thinking people viewed as a negative. Yeah i think that you're i. I think that you're right about both of those things. And i think that the last couple of years he's done those things more strongly than ever well the the first thing of of Allowing hateful discourse to to exist and even to thrive and then using it to advance his own political agenda. That's something that he is done much much more lately than before. Though it was always it was always part of his political. Life has always been like. You've suggested it's always really been part of israeli politics. But he did it. It seems for a period as though it was it was going away from israeli politics. We were becoming less so in the nineteen eighties. It was much much more dramatic than Than it was in the nineties and in the office. But netanyahu really did sort of bring it back and that there was a period of trauma after the rabin assassination when you know the whole issue of incitement was a hot potato and i think More politicians did try to including netanyahu tried to actively tampa down for for many many years and then and then he didn't so i think that that's that that's part of it I think that he he. He has a deep deep deep skepticism about the world. It's funny. Netanyahu seems to like to be at home in the world and he always talks about all the friends. He has mostly kind of right leaning leaders around the world. The of donald trump is the best example. But in fact. Netanyahu is deeply cynical about the world and believes deeply that the world is not to be trusted and that that people given the chance would destroy israel and that has been a part of a part of what has guided him since the beginning. And i think that it is. It's that it is more deeply ingrained in israeli politics. Now that is ever been before what translates to kind of reality politics of like anything being acceptable. And we're not guided by you know values or our hopes or dreams for the future. Netanyahu like stamped out the last possible remnants of shimon peres is like hopeful view. About how about what israel could be in in the world. And i don't see how that's gonna come back. I mean that that's just seems to me to be gone from israeli political discourse. And i'm very ambivalent about that shimon peres copeland this too. And i i share some of the netanyahu deep deep deep cynicism about the world and his honestly though paris would look at the abraham accords. Like the ceo. This is a realization of my vision. So that's the irony right right so so i have to hear what you have to what you wanna say. Sally but just quickly say there. Were these amazing successes. That netanyahu had partly you know i'm ambivalent about his economic success but it is a little bit undeniable that that That under his under his watch and partly because of him. Israel became much much much richer and more successful place and then And then to other things. One is with the corona for all the problems of the government dealing with this prime minister. Netanyahu did some miraculous thing in persuading the persuading pfizer and moderna to give more vaccines than there are israeli citizens to this country. It was an active. It was inactive brilliant and creative genius that he that he managed to and that you saved lots and lots of lives and then the other thing is netanyahu's really put an end to the messianic. Not maybe not forever. He really championed the messianic fervor of the settlement movement like he in this within the settlement movement. There are people who believe that. Netanyahu killed off the settler movement and. I think that that's vast exaggeration. But he has championed the settler movement..
"netanyahu" Discussed on The Takeaway
"Beyond the bounds of propriety these days but data i think those combinations make him the perfect actor on the world stage and obviously at least at home getting elected on the domestic stage for He may really need those sort of personal touch retail politics straits in his relationship with the new prime minister of israel so we actually reached out. He called a naphtali a bennett within hours whereas it had taken him months to call netanyahu. I'm wondering if you have insights on what this relationship may look like going forward. I think what we'll see. Change is probably more tone than substance. Tally bennett is probably further to the right than benjamin. Netanyahu was on a lot of issues. His new government is not going to support the iran. Deal the iran nuclear deal the same way who didn't There are definitely going to be continued differences between the us and israel. But i think the difference will be that You know. Ben and his people is foreign minister. Others aren't necessarily gonna come and make a speech before congress designed to humiliate the president or take other steps that you know really really emphasize these differences. So probably try to do it. More behind the scenes privately that sort of thing. Look what what we really have to. Also watch though is the ongoing conflict between israelis and the palestinians. And how whatever happens with that like if he stays calm or if it explodes again. How the government of israel reacts and how the us reacts then as well so these are just a lot of it's weird it's like there's these known unknowns you know we know what to watch for we. We don't know what's going to happen so so that's that's what i would say. It's more about tone than substance for do that known unknown relative to afghanistan with me has been been meeting resistance about the decision to remove troops from what i have read. It sounds like people are basically accepting it. I mean he seems set on it and nato and others are basically just trying to figure out how to Leave alongside the us while keeping some form of Security inside the country so that their embassies can continue running. That sort of thing. And and i think you're probably going to see at some point you know. Us air support some kind for the afghan army. but that's going to require finding basis probably hustle unit central asia. and it's. it's there's a lot that frankly still needs to be worked out but the general idea that the us sonate are going to be out. I think that's pretty much agreed to so barbara for cushman. I just wanted to ask you to do that. That known a those unknowns in the domestic context a bit to what are you looking for from president biden over the course of the rest of this year. Well i think transitioning from cove at the top of the of the list. We have to see if we have any more outbreaks there and obviously continued at vaccine a message and then getting that vaccine around the world Getting the economy back Seeing if he can get something done with republicans on infrastructure.
"netanyahu" Discussed on The Charles Moscowitz Podcast
"Netanyahu a weak militarily and saying that he will be a real man and then also thing that he has credible cases against them for for war crimes and seeing that the prime minister of israel. you're directly involved. Okay netanyahu you say maybe he's not the greatest guy but Bennett was literally directly involved in something that the is largely considered a war crime by the international community. Probably wouldn't be able to travel from my understanding bennett. Can't really travel internationally because there's so. Many lebanese people related to the people that bring a wrongful death. I think it was even in boston. One of the israeli Seniors that was part of the artillery was teaching in university in america and they tried to bring war. Crime case against him in. America extended diplomatic immunity in said that they couldn't bring war-crimes was literally an american citizen. Leads address family member was killed but from i understand There are family members of these lebanese people in most major countries around the world so So if bennett did become the prime minister and tried to your do anything or travel Be a diplomat for israel. There would be these lebanese family members. That would probably still trying to bring work on charges against a very troubling and maybe rightfully made it so it sounds like he was way off base. You know he was insubordinate he was gonna take kind of doing the like a cowboy move Any bombed the building and didn't get proper notification. And yeah it's it's it's very bad news this isn in the and now he's going to be prime minister. Sure i'll take just a bit because he speaks english without an accent so say the reason. The can't be. Prime minister is because no one understands. What the hell is saying like. He speaks english decently. But it's not like netanyahu. Guess are bennett even took like my conspiracy which is kind of just the intellectual thought experiment that It also mentioned the nuclear weapons bennett when he became security minister. Two thousand fifteen said that. They didn't even tell him about the nuclear weapons. Maybe they did and he did. Nobody's even when he was security minister for netanyahu He said to the us media that they didn't even tell him about the nuclear weapons. But you know some sort of us propping up. Israel's nominee Is going to become prime minister because he's a. Us citizen in speaks perfect english. And also if you saw the lindsey graham and now israel's going to petition for a billion dollars in emergency military aid to restock iron dome. Like i mentioned if it was iranian a long term strategy that If the us does not respect israel's iron dome israel could be quite a bit at military trouble than you. How dangerous iran. Where netanyahu invented are you basically saying that if the us enters the iranian agreement that israel is going to distance itself to america impossibly. Go on go on its own. And how credible israel that that. They're going to do it but it's thing that's what these guys are saying. So it's a bluff. What happens if they call their bluff and god forbid You know we're we're both jews who love israel even if we're scared or don't like the people leading it but he's saying those are our leaders they're in if they're making a bluffing it gets called. It could be a disaster and then what happens if the if there's pressure they don't Replentish iron dome and and then Then israel may not win the regional war in terms of hezbollah or if it was a long-term iranian strategy to God forbid destroy israel that the first wave of mass..

"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..

"Black lives matter said made comments that you know would be. Viewed very traditionally as leftist type comments about israel being colonialist imperialist militarist state. I mean that that has no right to exist there So you know i. I don't know if that's gonna influence some of the you know liberal jews by own out of boston. Who have the black lives matter signs on their lawns. But and i have a feeling. It doesn't matter to them but it's worth noting. Yes so it'd be interesting to good mon again in chelsea in check into my money's hospital on his volunteer there you see got kicked out of there for recording and i know the emergency room. There was a mess and sometimes you have to wait for hours and it's hard to get information probably any city hospital. You don't wanna have to check yourself into the emergency room but but They probably not allowed to video. It's probably policy. Nash internationally so they kicked him out of the waiting room for trying to Video when we tried to check himself into hospital. That's kind of been dono to turn on the video camera when you were inside a hostile. That's he's he's the kind of guy that would do that though. I could see that you know. He's he's a real. You know activists than the old the old fashioned sense the right out on the street Interesting i wish him well and i'm going to reach out see if i can talk to them this week. I mean that will really next week I also wanna bang. Outs newman from new american magazine. Interviewing me With regard to my book the satanic conspiracy. That's pay that showing some real leads on the getting book sales. I'm getting new new subscribers youtube. He's got a pretty good show and then he's he's got a going concern over there. I watched the i saw that. You tweeted that out. I just watch that Right before we start talking. I mean i could do a better job of looking at the thing and i i kind of feel cringe because you know i am very indirect. I don't want to say any you know so. I need to kind of shopping up a little bit in my talk. Line on the issue of this satanic influence There's the night debate. Prep i was telling people like my friend. Jennifer is like you gotta flow your debates and then know people are arguing like either to debates in ninth grade later. When i was on the debate team it was the rule like you had to do it or he couldn't be on the team and it's really important. You're grown man. You probably did as a kid but You know even has grown man to you know to think about it to how to most effectively communicate. Ideas really flowing. The conversations and debates is probably the best technique to improve. It is but. I think that i feel hobbled by this little voice in my head saying don't say this don't say that it's too controversial. I don't want to the anger. Anyone what you don't mean in sort of. I remember when i ran for congress. I had like a handler. Who had whispered in my ear and all politicians have this. Don't say anything about this. Don't sending back because you don't want to offend this segment that's segment and you know as an author. I shouldn't think about that. You know. I need to go in and say speak my mind and do so clearly and answer and let the chips fall him. How so you know. I i need to improve in that way and then when i looked at that interview like boy anyway there's been a major of course in the state of israel election but a coalition that. Apparently i don't know it's definitely but it seems that it has ousted prime minister benjamin netanyahu and it's made up of three it's interesting. There are three politicians involved..

"That labour leader was a big vision. Somebody who could really rally the support this very divided party because this is a posse that traditionally speak for the working class and de industrialized towns in northern britain. Looked many in many ways. You have a lot in common with the kind of spell in america and that trump heartland he needed to be able to reach those voters but also the kind of metropolitan liberal classes in cities like london manchester who have also traditionally been perfect. So that's difficult Such groups here in many ways. You can make ven diagram of what they both want. There's very little overlap so it takes everyday exceptional lead to do that. And that's just not what kissed dhamma has proved able to. Do i think my analysis of kia who actually quite well. Because i used to be a barrister in his chambers number of cases the momento human rights lawyer somebody with thirty deeply-held personal beliefs values while admire in many ways. But i think that he's coming into the labor party is someone is not so much seeking to inspire us to minimize the number of people who fans and that really pool foundation for policy. That can stand against boris johnson conservative policy. Because whatever you say about them they have somebody who many people see charismatic. They have a clear vision. Division is a populous bright wing nightmare in my opinion but it is a vision and labor on the other hand are really lacking in political identity. A policy vision charisma in any of senior leaders in its Proving again the the net result is that. Boris johnson seems to literally getting away with murder. Yeah no i think it's a good reminder that you you you don't win by just playing defense you have to grow an offense against what you're trying not to do is just not a it's not a. It's not a good foundation. Yeah i mean the nationalists have gone on offense for for over a decade here in you know helped each other out along the way and and part of what needs to happen is similar conviction in coordination and solidarity among the rest of us Which does lead into the rather dramatic developments in israel the last few days. So we've talked a lot on this podcast about. Obviously the recent god's war which left two hundred thirty palestinians and twelve israelis dead including over sixty palestinian children It seemed like guaranteed. The opposition leader was on the brink of forming. A government could ask Netanyahu for the first time in twelve years when that conflict took place. I think some cynical commentators thought that netanyahu was somewhat trying to use that conflict consolidate his control and divide the opposition which is composed of both parties to right of even yahu but also some of the arab joint lists in israel now it seems from announcements last couple of days that the opposition has agreed on a deal with the coalition that will look probably different than the one lupi wanted to put together the outset but there would oust anyo the basics of that agreement are that appeared in a guy named talley bennett announced that they're going to work together to form a coalition government. There's gonna be a rotating prime ministership. There will ask the now from power. Bennett will be the first prime minister. for a couple of years and then that will rotate to peed. I should say it's important to note this government could collapse to get to that point but at least that's the idea lobbied for people who don't follow this closely is former broadcaster. He's a secular. Centrist bennett on the other hand is kind of a hard line. Right wing jewish nationalist. A former netanyahu ally who turned against him. Who's said some pretty horrible things about al and certainly about preventing a palestinian state from emerging Now they have until wednesday so This week to finalize an agreement. And yeah i was furiously trying to undermine it But you know what we'd be left with this for the first time in a long time. No bb netanyahu as prime minister. Then this kind of really sprawling coalition that runs the gamut from naphtali bennett. As prime minister to arab parties that are providing the votes to get him in power being potentially being losing his immunity for prosecution since he's not prime minister and being convicted of corruption charges. If that moves forward. I just stepping back here. I wanted to give you the chance to respond. Not just to this but to the gaza war to in how you britain like america has been an analogy of israel. What was the reaction in the uk to the most recent gaza war. And then how do you see these. Latest political developments is leave. You feeling any differently about where things are headed between israel metallocenes. I mean all this coalition. They're wrong great. Examples of coalitions that have no coherent political outlook other than designed to oust the common enemy as being sustainable governing forces in any country learn one with the politics a tumultuous israel so it would be so interesting to see if this coalition actually works and how people with such disparate views can really come together and rule hit from britain. I think the perspective is and actually you know. There is kind of macro european perspective whereas ban over the years european official foreign policy has drifted more more towards israel and the kind of criticism that we're used to see for example towards ariel sharon twenty years ago reading hasn't been manifest against netanyahu. I think that the official position has been very slow to criticize him. There is ways this kind of bland. Well there are bad things. On both sides of britain like the us continues to A significant number of arms to israel. That's really being a flashpoint. In britain i would say that has been quite a grassroots movement cooling for the government stop arming israel until it can show people there on no human rights violations being carried out against palestinians which all the evidence suggests that currently awesome very serious extent. And i think that's this. Real disconnect actually between official foreign policy across europe from what many people from all political backgrounds actually is really quite a broad movement people if very critical about netanyahu about what's been happening especially in gaza officially britain's still supports the two state solution like mice european needs. It's hard to really know what that means anymore. And how realistic objective. That feels right now so it feels as if actually britain has become a minor player in this situation for awhile having obviously played such an informative role in creighton. This problem and sowing the seeds of this conflict from its own colonial policy and the creation of the modern state of israel and a lot of the noise coming from britain has reading to kind of reiterate and support. what the biden administration has been saying So it's a really mixed picture here. But i think that there is like many places the kind of desire to see a change from the car yahu government but a skepticism as to whether this could really work and i think it would be it would be great if we could be more hopeful that this represents change in the short time and progress towards a peace solution in the long term. But without actually some kind of clarity about what peace looks like how it would be structured and how it would actually meaningfully create change to palestinians That's really hard to see. Yeah now i mean even lapierre. Who's more of a like. I said a centrist. He's not exactly putting himself out there on the on the palestinian issue. There's pretty broad consensus in israeli politics to To not take on the hard pieces of that even as we see the situation get worse for palestinians by the day. And when you're in relation with neftali bennett saying nothing is no neutral option. You know very much about ways. Yeah i mean. I have to think that Lobbied got more votes and bennett. I mean may just be that he after four elections you know in a couple years. Just get bb out of there perhaps. Bb then gets convicted in his corruption trial. Perhaps the government falls apart then. Lupi thinks that there's an opening to do this again. I don giambi cynical that that may be part of what he's thinking. But this may break the logjam of netanyahu having this kind of grip on israeli politics. It doesn't solve the bigger bigger issues..

French president emmanuel macron is demanding that the us clarify whether it's still spying on european leaders.

Find her fifteen thousand dollars for refusing to take part in press conferences. Do state you into monocle. Twenty four throughout the day for more on those stories. Now not only bennett. The far right. Israeli politician could join a coalition with centrist leader lap. He'd to oust benyamin netanyahu and break his twelve year run as the country's longest serving prime minister in the last two years. Israel has voted in four elections with each ending in deadlock. Netanyahu's opponents have until tomorrow to form a government joining me from tel aviv is alison kaplan summer journalists from her. Herat's allison. thanks for coming on the show again. Tell us more about natalie bennett. Naftali bennett appeared in a very powerful in dramatic fashion on the political scene in about two thousand and thirteen. He's younger than benjamin netanyahu. he's only in his forties and he is a very hard core ideological greater land of israel zionist. Who believes that. The west bank should not be given up by the state of israel and he does not believe in a two-state solution while he is religious if he became prime minister as many hope he's going to become in the next week he would be the first one who is an orthodox jew who. Where's where's the key pa and an even though he is act- actually more ideologically on the right than netanyahu has considered in the past a two state solution He is now on the brink of joining with parties far to the left of him to To form a coalition with the goal of removing prime minister netanyahu from power so which parties would join with a whole spectrum parties. A whole range of parties. there is The closest to where he is ideologically is called the new hope party which is led by gideon sour. Who is really a career likud politician who because of his personal animus with with netanyahu has that in common with bennett as well Split off and formed his own party With the traditional Labor party the traditional center left party Demerits party which is further to the left of of labor and Obviously yeah you're appease. Pd asia tea party. Which is the the largest. Non netanyahu party and with whom bennett would presumably rotate as as prime minister and with benny his party. Against who is currently in the position of rotating prime minister and if the last government had had made it would eventually become prime minister. So it's a huge wide spectrum of parties with opposing ideologies. And that's why the negotiations of creating the government are very complicated and are taking a longtime but with such fundamental differences in ideology as the work. Well the idea first of all is that step one in getting israel's government on track into some form of stability and normality is to get rid of prime minister benjamin netanyahu because again this whole spectrum of political parties from right to left believed that the country is being held hostage to netanyahu's fight for political survival and desire not to be convicted of corruption crimes. And so step. One is let netanyahu go and then you all the rest will work itself out now. Obviously that's not going to be so simple. But the idea is to focus on domestic issues and to come to some sort of agreement some sort of freeze when it comes to the fate of the nation in terms of peace and security and try to reach a reach some sort of agreement in which there are no steps it depending on which side you are right steps forward in terms of moving towards some sort of land for peace deal in combination with the palestinians on one hand and on the other not move far in the other direction in terms of additional settlements and ruling out a two states so there should in theory. It sounds good but nobody knows if it's going to work. So i mean essentially. Some huge issues will need to be parked for now. Absolutely that is the. That's the goal in. And that's the point now but as we know events wait for no person and one wonders for example if this coalition were already in place and those hostilities with gaza had had played out with this new theoretical future coalition how they would have managed to balance. The opposing reacts to that so with bennett. Who's committed to israel as the jewish nation state in government and in a very powerful position. How will that impact the relationship with the us. Who's pushing for a two state solution It's a big question mark. Listen neftali bennett was actually born to american parents. His parents emigrated from the united states. And he is multimillionaire due to his success in high tech. So he's a sophisticated person. He's not a you know he's not some naive man who doesn't know how to deal with the. Us government doesn't know how to deal with the west he's had he's appeared on the media so presumably. He will know how to express his views in a way. That doesn't lead to some sort of head on collision with the white house. And as i described in terms of the this new coalition. He is going to have to moderate his ideology..
