Thousands of Israelis protest in Jerusalem, despite lockdown

"One thing that's really interesting that's come up in recent days in Israel has been the question of protest versus prayers religious leaders in Israel complained about closing synagogues. Wild protests are permitted these continuing protest against Prime Minister Netanyahu hooves, facing corruption charges. What do you make of that tension? The was a very significant scores in Israel as to what should be the relationship between competing basic rights. The right to assemble and protest on the one hand the right to worship or excised freedom of religion on the other hand i. mean the Prime Minister, who is of course, the target of the process as the in a way, stoke this attention to some extent and some even say that he has pushed for more extreme lockdown. So as to give him some more legitimacy in trying to introduce stricter. Restrictions on the protests, how significant would be that the Israeli government protest against it even during a time of crisis well, this is going to be I think a very serious mistake at a very problematic development i. think there has been more sense that in terms of enforcing other restrictions. The fact that you have this exception where thousand sometimes tens of thousands of people are congregating this makes it A. Very difficult message to convey today's rally public that strict restrictions are needed. But of course, from basic rights perspective, it's a very troubling development because you do not deprive basic rights in order to teach a lesson to convey a message. So bad communication a lockdown within a lockdown fast-changing and often confusing limitations, and this galloping infection rate in Israel has there been an impact on trust between Israelis and their government. Yeah, trusting government is being really in free fall in the first wave as being the government was Korda blinded. By this development and they reacted quite quickly in fishing, the the second wave, they had a lotta time to prepare, but they did not prepare adequately. They didn't put in a testing parameters, the concentration apparatus, still not up and running. So there's been a lot of political inciting foot-dragging by Netanyahu and the government. So when we in the I started tracking this crisis, his approval rating or trust beware sixty percent trust now it is less than thirty contrasts. So a his popularity is really gone down and I think that's a general sense that the government is very unpopular.

I don't want to sound Pollyannish about this. But many of you who have listened to this programme for its entirety. For 30, plus years. I have no doubt heard me say that I didn't expect it to ever be peace in the Middle East until one side loses. Meaning I didn't think there would ever be a negotiated peace. I just didn't think it was possible. I thought that Peace was not going to be brought about with words. Doctors, nurses, clean water all these ephemeral things. I thought that peace Would occur as it always does. After one side loses. Meaning after a war. I thought that was the only because I've been following it for 50 years and no matter who has tried no matter How hard they work, no matter how much they desired it, nothing ever happened. And I said, it's not possible the way they're going about this. They're not going to get people to agree to give up. What's necessary. People are going to have to have it taken from them. They have to lose it in a war. That's how peace has always been achieved.

Coronavirus: Israel marks Jewish New Year with second lockdown

"Rush Shawna or Jewish New Year begins at sunset this evening. But for Israel this new. Year's anything. But happy as the country becomes the first major economy to enter into a second. Nationwide lockdown against a backdrop of serious discontent towards the handling of the pandemic and the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu himself Israel, which was one of the first countries to enact stringent measures to inhibit the spread of the virus is shutting down. Again, the three weeks we'll joining me now is Alison Kopplin summer who is a journalist for hurt a good morning to you alison. Why is this can lockdown necessary? Well. It's basically necessary because our infection rates which reached a really dramatic low back in in May. have been creeping up all through the summer months and then I'm have basically exploded beginning. At the end of August, beginning of September which was really. Enhanced by the the return of of kids to school we really see that they've absolutely been able to to mark. A connection between the fact that kids went back to school on. September first and that since then the the rates have been have been doubling and and surging among the general population at an unprecedented rate before that, it was basically concentrated in certain populations, certain cities, certain neighborhoods. But as kids went back to school, it just exploded across the entire population. So this goes against what the so corona virus saw said a couple of months ago when he asserted the socio economic trauma inflicted by covert restrictions was greater than its health impacts. So can you help line the state of the economy and how these further restrictions will impact on businesses? Well. There's been a huge debate going into this lockdown as to the extent to which private businesses should be allowed to continue business as usual a huge debate over the the pain that closing down business will cause versus the attempt to to fight the to fight the lockdown We already have a major unemployment problem and unlike European countries Israel has not been fully compensating businesses for their losses. and. So there's a huge bitter angry rebellion by business owners small and large and not insignificant chance that this time around because people have much less faith than they did in the first lockdown there's going to be a lot of businesses I predict violating the restrictions and an opening for business even in the face of the of the restrictions I mean, what does the Don actually entailed? Everything must close. Everything must close except for essential services such as supermarkets and and pharmacies public offices will be open, but they won't receive. receive the public in In Government Offices Private businesses. Again, this came after fight are two privately reopened with a with a minimal amount of staff in in Workplaces So you know the economy is being partially allowed to function. That's why there are so many as they say, Swiss cheese holes in this lockdown but they're worried that you know in the attempts to keep the economy going to an extent know if schools are out, you can't have a full economy running. That they're putting so many holes in it in order to keep the the economy functioning at a certain rate that it's going to be ineffective in terms of of actually bringing the infection rate down significantly what about the situation in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip? The situation is bad there too. There's a lockdown in Gaza right now and and the West Bank is also suffering from from it from an outbreak. So they are they're not in any kind of renewed full scale lockdown, the way that that we are, but they are they're in a difficult place as well. Now, this as you mentioned a huge amount of opposition to this and people are actually protesting who's out on the streets. Well There's always been a religious secular divide in. Israel? Approximately. Twenty twenty, five percent of our population are Orthodox smaller. percent of that are also Orthodox and those daybreak cities where the ultra-orthodox resided partially because of the large family size there and how how dense their residences is that has been really a hotbed of infection as well as Arab towns and. Cities and so it's been very hard for them to specially over a long period of six months to stop with their large gatherings, their traditions, their prayers, etc, and that is countered by. On, the other side and on the secular side, the need to protest against a Netanyahu how he's had this corruption trial, they've had large protests. So basically, there's this back and forth going on why can we not gather in a? Study Jewish learning while you can gather on the streets and have a protest, and for example, why can you go to your ritual baths and we can't go to the beach? So there's there's a lot of fourth fighting and then the the biggest and most desperate cry is from the business owners who are feeling so much economic pain. So there's protests coming from from all directions and how will this affect the political situation? While the political situation isn't good to begin with one of the reasons that Israel has been. So crippled in fighting the corona virus situation is as I said, really hotbeds of infection at least as of two three months ago we're in these ultra-orthodox cities neighborhoods, and what the coronavirus czar planned to do came in trying to do is to really shut those cities down and really be able without harming the economy on a large scale to focus the approach inside these communities and political pressures. made it impossible for Netanyahu, to really stand behind his are and do the because the ultra Orthodox parties said, if you close our cities if you shut down now. If, you don't allow us to go to synagogue. We are going to leave your coalition and basically bring down the government, and that's why at every turn these ultra-orthodox parties have been able to twist the government's arm into allowing them to have more freedom than the secular public looks at what's going on in the religious sector and they say, well, if they're not GONNA do it. We're not going to do it, and then you've got a very bad dynamic there. I listen Israel forced all foreign arrivals to self isolate on March the night that was before the World Health Organization announced that it was in fact, a pandemic given the the the country is now in this situation, won't you think that other nations around the world can learn by watching this? I think really the biggest lesson that that Israel can teach the world is. Opening up schools particularly when it above the age of ten or so is really a dangerous difficult and problematic as much as we all want to see our children. In school learning getting an in person education that that is really the trigger. This is now the second time that that sending kids to school have have sent our infection rates. Rising, and that's why any kind of a resumption of studies has to be done extremely slowly carefully in a measured way starting with the youngest kids and slowly going. Up and keeping a very, very strong monitoring. On how that that is affecting the society because kids go to school, they get infected, they come home in the infect their entire families.

President Trump presides over a reshaping of Middle East power dynamic

"The White House was trying to resolve the Israeli Palestinian conflict with the quote deal of the century, but the Palestinians were not among those signing the so called Abraham Accords today. It was the foreign ministers of the United Arab Emirates in Bahrain, agreeing to open diplomatic and economic ties with Israel. President Trump's staged an elaborate ceremony to mark the occasion were here this afternoon to change the course of history. After decades of division and conflict, we marked the dawn of a new Middle East. Neither Bahrain nor the United Arab Emirates were at war with Israel. They had been working quietly together to counter Iran. Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, thanked the the US US president, president, You You have have unequivocally unequivocally stood stood by by Israel Israel side. side. You You have have boldly boldly confronted confronted the the tyrants tyrants of of Tehran. Tehran. You've proposed a realistic vision for peace between Israel and the Palestinians, Palestinian see the deal's as a betrayal by their Arab allies and an effort by the Trump administration to undermine the Arab peace initiative. That plan calls for normalization with Israel after the Israeli Palestinian conflict is resolved. The Trump Administration took a different approach, says Aaron David Miller of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. They reserved all the honey for Israel in the key Arab states and all the vinegar for the Palestinians. The idea is that as Arab states normalize ties with Israel and get big arms deals with the U. S. They will put pressure on the Palestinians to make peace with Israel on terms more favourable to Netanyahu. Miller says It's known as the outside in approach, and he recalls numerous conversations about this with Trump's son in law and advisor Jared Kushner. It was just easier for them. It was more attractive for them. It was much more in keeping with the pro Israeli sensibilities both for political reasons, and in the case of Mr Questioner and others emotionally To align themselves with the eyes outside in approach. It's starting to pay off. But the Trump administration is still short of its ultimate prize, Miller says. Getting Saudi Arabia on board. My only concern is that they have hyped and Who plotted to the point where That may not yet be wanted. But if other Arab states join the party, particularly the Saudis, then I think you've got something that will be much more enduring. The Arab foreign minister say they're not turning their backs on Palestinians and Moradi Abdullah bin Zayed, speaking through an interpreter reminded Netanyahu that he agreed to suspend plans to annex parts of the Israeli occupied West Bank. You can look after dark cell. Um thank you for choosing peace and for halting the annexation off Palestinian territories at position that reinforces our shared will To achieve a better future for generations to come. In this time of a pandemic. The men didn't wear masks as they signed their deals with Israel. They did, however, avoid a public handshake. And while the ceremony was taking place at the White House, Palestinian militants in Gaza fired two rockets into southern Israel.

"Prime. Minister Benjamin. Netanyahu is set to sewing agreements with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in an official ceremony. The White House today establishing full relations between Israel and the two Gulf states the in Bahrain will be the third and fourth Arab states to normalize ties with Israel following peace treaty signed with Egypt in Nineteen, seventy, nine and Jordan in one, thousand, nine, hundred, four as captain. That some journalist for Herat's joins us on the line now for more alison good afternoon to you. Thanks for being with us a a momentous day. I guess potentially Tell us what the story is though behind this story if you like for the Gulf States is this about? Is this about trade? Do we know more about what the sort of strategic alliance is really going to look like? Well, the clear motivation for these Gulf states in taking their relationship with Israel out of the closet because people who live in Israel and especially in the business community here know that there have been you know practical economic ties between the Gulf states you a and and buffering literally for for decades. So this is more of a public declaration than it is some sort of new development or arrangement, but the primary. Motivator everyone knows is the common interests that Israel and the Gulf states have in encountering the UH, the aggression, the the posturing of Iran. The the enemy of my enemy is my friend dynamic and and the Gulf states with the strong encouragement of the trump administration and the white. House have convinced the states to move beyond the position that the Palestinian issue is is more important than their common strategic interests with Israel. Well, that was going to be my next question, which is, where does this leave? Iran did you think to a degree to Horon has been somewhat wrong-footed by this How'd you think? No be be responding what are we hearing? Well. They can't have completely expected it. We haven't heard a lot of loud noises out of Iran strategically. The United States is trying to engineer and what Israel is also hoping is to line up enough of the Arab world on the side of a reconciliation conciliation with Israel as to leave Iran relatively isolated and Iran so goes the proposition won't be able to survive as a completely isolated player in the in the Arab world. So we haven't heard a lot out of Iran except for the general denunciations but we'll probably be hearing a lot once this the. Ceremony is done and you know reminder there's no details yet of the content of what this declaration is going to be at the White House today on both sides it's been hush hush. So we have absolutely no idea what is going to be said, what is going to be declared so you know on both sides on the left and on the right on the Israeli right in the Arab world, we may be in for considerable amount of reaction and criticism. Once we actually know what's inside. You mentioned Palestinians just briefly earlier and it's been interesting to see this been this fairly established long standing consensus I suppose on the Arab side that you know you you couldn't have normalized relations with Israel that was viewed by many as as something of a prerequisite for for for Palestinian independence I don't if you necessarily go along with that reading but. Palestinians feel well, certainly aggrieved you. We read the word betrayal in some in some statements. Do you think that's the correct way to look at the the Palestinian position? That's definitely the way that to look at the Palestinian position. They feel betrayed by their their brothers in the Arab world. But remember you know this isn't exactly new. They have much closer neighbors and connections with the the countries of Jordan and Egypt choose the WHO's peace accords who's state of non hostility with Israel is also longstanding. So this isn't unique in the Arab world to to prioritize making peace with Israel in and turning towards the West as. A way of of of improving their economic in their domestic concerns and you know more and more I think these countries especially in some of these you know autocracies in the Gulf states they look internally and they look at their own stability and they say, you know we have to protect ourselves. We have to worry about ourselves more than we We worry about the Palestinian people vote is definitely a blow to the Palestinian cause. The Israelis and the Americans are hoping that this will. Soften the Palestinians and make them more amenable to to compromise in in potential negotiations with Israel. From the Israeli side. Then tell us a bit about some of the conversations. Your your having clearly is something that was expedient from a business point of view. It's expedient strategically as you mentioned because of the the the shad threat or the two that Iran poses what about this broader feeling that maybe it's a really meaningful step in the direction of ending this sort of slightly isolated regional picture for for for for for Israeli that too much to hope for. Oh I. Think it's huge in the eyes of the the average Israeli the coming to some sort of a normalization of a status with countries like the U. A. N. and Bahrain Israelis for years have been looking at V with envy at European who can fly in and out of places. Like Dubai, it's going to be huge as a tourist destination for for Israelis you know they feel very kind of trapped in a in a hostile region, and so the more countries here that that open up to them open up to them the better you know it's It's an irony and I'm sure a disappointment for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the fact that what will certainly be viewed as greatest diplomatic achievement. In, his more than a decade of being prime minister as far as these other people are concerned are overshadowed by what they feel is the failure and is handling of the coronavirus crisis and the very few Israelis there on a celebratory mood as they look at the what's going on in Washington, DC as they prepare to be the first Western country to go into a second full lockdown as a result of their soaring corona virus. Rate. I have I have to ask you about the Alison as you mentioned, the first country in the world to impose a second national lockdown to begin what by the end of this week? What is the mood? Is it about I wonder people are some people sanguine about the fact that this is a huge unprecedented challenge and so people having to make decisions on the on the WHO for is there a feeling? They want answers from government still why it's at the moment only then. People are very unhappy and very discontent. In the particularly because it's been such a roller coaster ride Israel really now the first lockdown got the infection rate down very low and they were a complete failure when it came to the reopening process political interests financial interests pushed, and pressured Netanyahu to re open economically open the schools reopened synagogues. And allowing large gatherings much much too quickly, and it got the virus you know from a very manageable rate to rate in which things were were out of control and so There was an an attempt to do sort of localized lockdowns that the so-called red cities would be shut down and not do this to the entire country but it got very politicized in certain cities felt that they were being targeted certain populations that they were being discriminated against that it wasn't going by the. Strictly. By the numbers, they saw it as discrimination against ultra-orthodox cities or Arab cities which were headed to the the centers of infection. It became a whole political argument and discussion nothing effective happened, and basically the government decided that because of our situation nothing except the complete national measure national lockdown would would be affected in significantly lowering the infection rate here. Alison. Fascinating. Religiously to hear from you today, that was a good friend, Alison Captain Summer there joining us here on the briefing.

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

"Sat down at a table armed with a powerpoint presentation welcome to this press conference of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to present the special report on global warming of one point five degrees. The presentation was pretty dry but the content would end up making a big splash. The scientists laid out how much better off the world will be if we can limit global warming to one and a half degree. Celsius instead of a longtime international national target of two degrees Celsius. Every bit of extra warming makes a difference. This is climate scientist. Hans auto partner one of the panelists that spoke that day the proportion of the world population exposed to climate induced water shortages would be up to fifty percent less one and a half degree Celsius Celsius or two point seven degrees Fahrenheit would mean hundreds of millions fewer people would face extreme heatwaves up to ten million. Fewer people exposed opposed to the risk of rising seas. Some of the world's coral reefs would survive crops would do better to the scientists also found that limiting global warming to one and a half degrees actually still possible but the world would have to cut carbon emissions roughly half by twenty thirty to do you it. If we don't achieve that target it gets really hard. This is Penn State University atmospheric scientist Michael Man if we don't get to that first critical reduction by twenty thirty it becomes very difficult to see away that we can limit warming below that dangerous one and a half degrees Celsius after that u n the report was released last year. The world had a deadline and we started to hear politicians and activists talking about it. We have no more than twelve years. Here's to.

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

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

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

"Week after your first to Bob we are so happy to be able to share the two hundred eighty eighty four day and look forward to spending your first anniversary with you to send us to the details and we'll be right there in the hotel room next year is today we will speak three topics of indescribable importance but first we have to short matters is part of an occasional series that we call the promised podcast ponders the answer my friends which is blowing in the wind the first matter will already be familiar to regular readers of the website of the Saint Petersburg Yacht Club which has lately been almost entirely given over and with good good reason to coverage of the R. S. X. Youth World Championship are s colon. X is the name of the sort of windsurfer that that since two thousand and eight has competed in the summer Olympics distinguished from other windsurfer classes by the size shape weight of the board and the size shape and weight of the sale it is the winner of class that matters the most on the Saint Petersburg Yacht club site one finds a Soko article headlined quote Climatic Climatic End to youth world championship as Russian Gold is secured and Israel dominates on final day and quote which headline if you think about it contains an important statement about anthropogenic climate change what with its climatic and in the article we learned that among the boys all three medals medals in the world championship where one by Israelis with Y'all your high thrower winning Gold Danielle Classic Tush Tush taking silver and Reuven Hill winning bronze it was the first time in human history that and Israeli stood upon each of the three podiums at a world championship sporting event and as it transpired the three boys who are friends as well as competitors all huddled together on the gold podium holding in front of themselves a giant Israeli flag as two of their other teammates wrap themselves Israeli flag like a shawl and jumped up on the podium all the while three Israeli flags arranged in bronze silver. The Gold Pyramid were displayed on a screen behind them all this while hatikva played it was a beautiful moment among the women Russian Yana Resnick Cova took gold and Israeli now Berg won the bronze Saint Petersburg is said to be celebrating its tricentennial this year but in three hundred years the city has never seen as Yar a demonstration of Israeli and it says this in contrast the second matter blowing in the wind is hardly a source of pride but maybe a source of some astonishment and and that is that this week a man named Bodry Shim she'll really from Georgia in Eastern Europe was apprehended at Ben Gurion airport as he walks walk through the green nothing to declare customs line with suitcases containing four hundred forty five thousand six hundred cigarettes or two thousand. I was in two hundred and twenty eight packs of Winston and pall malls in the event. Shimmy Shields Feeley is allowed as a new immigrant to bring personal stuff furniture or a stereo and such into the country tax free when his nineteen large bags were discovered to contain only cartons of cigarettes he reportedly told customs officials that the nearly half half-million cigarettes were for his own personal. Use Guy likes a good smoke today three topics topic one is Netanyahu over as the man who who for a decade or more has seemed like Israel's least beatable most unsinkable most inevitable in replaceable politician. Benjamin Jim in Theon has lately come to seem unsure tentative. Maybe a step slower signs are there for those who seek them from political rivals spit shining their resumes too hurried worried half-baked mid-election trips to places like the Ukraine in a seemingly desperate effort to get Pompton circumstance back into presidential respectability to coming awfully a fawning Peter Laureus head of Vassal State In yes seraing to President Donald Trump's tweet bullying him to prevent congresswoman club and Omar from flying in and lots more will ask is that sound we hear the swoosh of our once invincible prime minister jumping the shark topic to Brits. It's connects Aussies Kiwis staffers roadies patties Scotts and Yanks as a new political organization called our time is now aims aims to get more quote unquote anglo-saxons or native English speaking Israelis into politics this because our communal needs being met and more important because we who imbibed the democratic values with our mother's milk has something unique and of great value to offer Israel. We will ask very modestly. Is it true that the body politic of Israel has has been forced to live way too long without the crucial contribution that only those raised in the language of William Shakespeare and Kanye West can offer and topic three boys always on TV as three filmmakers to Jewish Israelis and one Palestinian Israeli make a ten part HBO series about the worst summer we have had out here in years and years two thousand fourteen in which three Jewish kids were kidnapped and murdered by two Hamas thugs and then a Muslim kid was kidnapped and murdered by three revenge adult Jewish thugs and then we went to war in Gaza. We've watched all the episodes that can as yet be streamed and we'll ask broken skin confused and sad what what how why what and for our most generous Patriot supporters this week in our extra special special extra extra segment in celebration of August when almost everyone goes far away we are going to talk about our favorite getaway spots here where we go to spend an idol week or maybe just an idle title afternoon off the beaten path or smack DAB in the middle of the beaten path but before we get to any of that open up your minds people and listen to this amazing music that Oh hot introduced me to Matt.

"There were a lot of things at play. But it seems like you are reporting that it ended up being really focused on one thing it really ended up being a referendum on prime minister Netanyahu who's been in power for thirteen years. He is really popular in spite of a lot of challenges. He's had their attorney general here recommended that he be indicted for bribery and fraud charges earlier in February now next step. He has a pretrial hearing to see if those charges will stick that will happen in the coming months. His opponents painted him as out of touch with you know, some of the everyday concerns about living here healthcare education infrastructure. But you know, Netanyahu has a reputation he's honed over many years of being super strong unsecurity, insecurity is really important to Israel as when the cast their votes. And now talk to me about some of the promises that mister Netanyahu made during this campaign. You report that one of them will have a pretty profound impact on what happens in the region. At the eleventh hour a few days ago, he made a controversial pledge to begin applying Isreaeli sovereignty in parts of the West Bank, which would be a first step to annexation of that territory that would make the creation of contiguous Palestinian state in future. Two state solution nearly impossible and could really change the terms of what possible Middle East peace would look like keep an eye on wsJcom for any updates in the race as well as a response from the Trump administration, which has yet to comment on the outcome.

"He has to wake up every morning and think that if he doesn't get through this day and if he doesn't ensure his own political survival, Israel itself will not survive. He believes in historical destiny in the sense that the Jews are always on the brink of destruction always have to be constantly on guard and he doesn't see anyone else in Israel as capable of of being that God of being the man to make sure your work compromise what make any concessions that his life's work. And that's that is historical Desi. That's how he sees it. We, we do need to mention the father around. Of course, the older brother because these are often characters deployed in people, try by people rather trying to understand divine a Netanyahu, psychological makeup. He's father Benzon Netanyahu the distinguished if somewhat marginally historian who lived pastas hundredth birthday. And of course contrasting with the the glamorous older brother yeoman Netanyahu the only Israeli fatality of the the, the right on Entebbe this sort of absolutely gilded national hero. Do you think the role of those two figures in Netanyahu's life has been overstated? Would he have been who he is without them a con, make that kind of positives whether or not he would have been different without the, but they said they both played very major roles in making out of the man. He is his father furnished Netanyahu's historical outlook. If you read his father's historical essays and books, you can see how he basically built the whole narrative through which Netanyahu sees the past of the Jewish history. And what he has to do in the future to ensure Jewish survival. Benetton was a student of of anti-semitism. Basically his specialty was Spanish period of the inquisition and the expulsion of the Jews, and he saw the, he's what he saw. He saw a weakness in the Jewish leadership of that period which he was she reasons which was five hundred years ago and he sold us saying weaknesses in the twentieth century in contemporary Jewish leaders and Netanyahu model himself as the counter narrative to the week leaders who put his all of the Jews at risk, he would be very different lead. That's how he sees himself to this day. As far as Yanni goes babies, elder brother, Jonathan Yanni. He was perhaps even more influential on maybe growing because the father was very distant and closed in his study with his books and writing. He wasn't that much involved in his sons lives. Yanni was also the elder brother who rebelled against the father. Not an idea. Michael sense, but in in a very real sense of the fact that when at the time both in their teens, both of them, they were living with their family in Philadelphia where benching Tony our gun because he couldn't find academic post in Israel at the time he was studying and teaching in Philadelphia, and he wanted his sons to remain in the US not because he wasn't designed. He was a staunch Zionist, but because he felt that their destiny was to beat intellectual elite and to do that. He wanted them to go and study in Ivy league colleges in the US, and you only had been accepted to Harvard. Maybe it'd be accepted to Yale, but the fact that both of them chose to serve and to serve in the most demanding an elite of Israeli units instead of becoming as intellectual elitists that father want them to be will vary significant moment in baby's life Netanyahu's military career. As you point out does have significant gaps in it because quite a lot of what he did, we've unit the it is still classified, but I wonder what you make of the idea. That perhaps and not just team it say, I don't know if Trump's the right word, but it's clearly something that Israel has difficulty getting out of because most Israeli leaders like most Israelis serve in the military and they have a military career behind them. Is there an extent which Netanyahu never quite left the military, and therefore that he has that that weakness of responding to political problems with military solutions? Actually, Netanyahu is not a militarist in the sense that he doesn't believe in the idea if as solution to Israel's Israel's challenges in the sense of the idea is a big organization to now has never been comfortable giving orders as a prime minister for widespread mobilization. You make you make the point that fewer idea of soldiers have died under his leadership. And he's very civilians as well in terror attacks the the Ethel Sarah Mikhail is tiny..

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