Fresh update on "prime minister benjamin netanyahu" discussed on The Brett Winterble Show
"Www bt Bright, Wonderful show Great to be here with you, So let's Let's take a little servant of some of the other stuff that's kind of happening out there. Remember, you've been watching this this coverage of the president's foreign policy approach as it relates to the Middle East, right? And President Trump has certainly been very effective in in bringing about a number of agreements out of the Middle East. That you know, some people even kind of thought were Nobel prize worthy sort of moves. But here's where it gets very, very interesting, and it's a Piece written by Benny Avni. Who is ah, very important character. Benny Avni, a writing this piece over in the New York Sun. About foreign policy. And the Saudis and Israel and a number of other things. So let me set the table this way, because this is a vitally important story. If you are concerned about us having to get tracked. Dragged back into the Middle East wars. And if it feels like with Tony Blinken coming in, Hey, maybe one of these guys that that wants us to work with allies for international adventure. Around around that part of the the world. So it turns out there was a meeting. There was a secret meeting that took place between Bebe Netanyahu in Israel and the Saudi Crown Prince. Now that is unheard off. That is absolutely unheard of, but But Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu secretly met Saudi Arabia as Crown Prince and the kingdom of Saudi Arabia on Sunday that, according to three Saudi government advisors, it's their first known meeting and amid a US push to normalize ties between the Saudis. And the Israelis. Now this is blockbuster stuff. Remember, the Saudis were financing so many terrorist groups around the Middle East, including Al Qaeda at ons on some level Saudi Arabia is denying the meeting took place, but Israel is not denying that the meeting took place. And so you have BB. Netanyahu go and meet with Prince Mohammed Bin Salman on Sunday night in the seaside corner of northwest Saudi Arabia. It also coincided with the visit by our Secretary of state Mike Pompeo. One of the Saudi advisers familiar with the talks, told The Wall Street Journal that Mr Pompeo hadn't joined the meeting, as Israel's Army radio had initially reported, but did help arrange it. Mr Pompeo met with Netanyahu in Jerusalem during a three day visit last week to Saudi in Israeli leaders discussed several issues, including Of including normalization of ties and Iran. So the Israelis and the Saudis are talking about normalizing relations. This would be Oh, gosh. I mean, this would be on par. If you go back to 77 with with Israel and Egypt coming to the Camp David accords. That's a significant that's a statistically historic event that takes place. The idea that the Saudis and the Israelis would recognize each other diplomatically would be a blockbuster play, and if they're doing it because they understand the threat From Iran, and let's remember let's reset things here it was. The Obama administration had sent billions of dollars in relief to Iran. They did the international nuclear sort of pact on the back of an envelope. The J P. The J. J F P away that I caught. All that sort of stuff was was put together well when President Trump started putting these Arab countries together with Israel. They got more mentum, Sudan. Has now gone normalized relations with Israel. Sudan is a country that wants that once sheltered Osama bin Laden. Hey, had a farm in that country back in the 19 nineties when he was out there. Plotting terrorist attacks. It's a significant place, so so why do I set it up this way? Because of Benny Abney writes this piece in the New York Sun, and he says, This is a warning to Joe Biden. How the story of today's first known American Israeli Saudi summit was first reported a significant and suggested was calculated to influence Vice President Biden and the foreign policy team he's preparing to put in place in Washington. Three way summit on the Red Sea resort of Neon. Um Was very important. The parley. The conversation included not only the Saudi Crown prince but but also my prime Minister, Netanyahu and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. In breaking the news, the Israeli press, citing officials, Mr Netanyahu's entourage, the Journal called it to government advisors for the Saudi government. Whatever else one can say about the trio that will likely be handling American foreign policy. They're seasoned technocrats and Mr Biden's closest advisers during his vice presidency by my lights. It's an impressive group. The message from neon Appears to be this. Those Mideast moves orchestrated by the so called quote, chaotic Trump Administration are here to stay, and they will grow in favor America. Beware of undoing them for the sake of re balancing the region toe favor a common enemy, the Iranian Islamic Republic. Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett. That group in the White House was very into the idea of having this re balance with the Iranian Islamic Republic. Now, when you look at the way the story emerged on the world stage, suspicion was that eager Israelis air rushing to tell the world about a breakthrough. That it was rampant after Israeli bloggers first started writing about it. But here's the thing. Israeli equivalent of a vice president. A guy named Benny Ganz said. The all but public disclosure was harmful, hinted with displeasure at it Once again, he was kept in the dark ahead of a significant national event. Only known official in the premier's entourage was the massage chief Yossi Cohen. To make matters worse, the Saudi Foreign minister, Faisal bin Ferrand, issued a mid day denial of press reports about the meeting. One day before the meeting, Prince Feisal said that yes, Saudi Arabia favors peace. But an agreement between Israel and the Palestinians must come before Riyadh in Jerusalem, sign anything that position and effect is like saying the Messiah must come before the global happiness ensues. The official position of King Solomon. The sun is MBS. So who will Biden side with? Well, Biden side with an aging, ailing king, who favors old foreign policy chestnuts or his son who's eager to create new regional alliances based on close ties that spent all the way from Sudan to India. And are anchored by Israeli Saudi power blocs. This is the context in which Mr Biden's thin pre election statements on foreign policy are far from encouraging. Mr Brydon vowed to reassess relations with Riyadh to reflect the Washington revulsion over the killing of Jamal Kashiwagi. Only.

"Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu secretly met with Saudi Arabia is Crown Prince in the kingdom Sunday, according to three Saudi government advisors, their first known meeting Made US push to normalize ties between the long time foes. The Saudis and the Israelis met Sunday. Without the Palestinians involved in the negotiations Contrary completely contrary to what Senator what secretary state then 2016 John Kerry said. Saudi Arabia is denied the meeting took place. Israel has not That's that was the headline yesterday. Wall Street Journal. Now, September 2020 this year September of this year, Israel has signed a new peace agreement with the United Arab Emirates at the White House. That's you, eh? Another Saudi country without the without the Palestinians involved whatsoever, signing a peace deal at the White House with the Israelis. Two examples. John Kerry was completely wrong. And the current secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, was instrumental And being a negotiator, a moderator, a go between in both sets of negotiations. It can happen. The Palestinians do not have to be involved in any negotiations, and John Kerry could not have been more wrong about it in 2016, and that may be very well. The reason why he was not chosen to be secretary of state again and is now overseeing climate change. Yeah, he's going to focus on climate. Well, that's according to Joe Biden, but that's maybe one of the reasons and that's why we wanted to roll out that audio clip because he did not read the room at all in the Middle East properly. He missed

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

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

Sudan And Israel Agree To Normalize Relations In U.S.-Brokered Deal
"Israel. President Trump announcing in the Oval Office that Sudan and Israel have agreed to normalize relations, ending decades of hostility, the president praising Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu first signing on to the U. S broker deal. But for many years you've been Officially in war with Sudan, and now it's not only to deal with some, but it's peace. So that's official.

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

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. Alison despite everything. Shana Tova.
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.

"News. You're listening to all things considered from NPR news. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is meeting secretary of state Mike Pompeo today. In Brussels there discussing developments in the Middle East this as Netanyahu battles a new set of corruption allegations back home police are recommending he be indicted on bribery charges. That does not mean he will be charged that citizen for Israel's attorney general. But this is the third corruption case Netanyahu has faced this year. And it is considered the most serious that's bringing NPR's Daniel estrin. He is in Jerusalem. Hey, Daniel time. What is this latest set of corruption allegations, they concern the relationship Netanyahu had with an Israeli businessman. He's the chief shareholder of telecom company and police say that Netanyahu pushed through regulation apparently concerning a company merger that meant millions of dollars for this businessman. This businessman's company owns an online news site and police say that in exchange for the regulatory favor. Netanyahu gave him on. Yahoo. Got to dictate. What was said about him on this new site? He got favorable coverage. She got articles critical of him taken down. Now, this is all far from over. It's as you say it's up to the attorney general to decide whether to indict Netanyahu. And the attorney general by the way was appointed by Netanyahu himself. Could take months before a decision is announced. And it's now is denying wrongdoing here. He's calling it a police witch hunt a witch hunt. Interesting coincidence that that is the exact same language. President Trump often deploys against his adversaries Netanyahu is also used the term fake news many times, and he's also railed against the media for publishing details of these investigations. All right. So a lot of parallels there, but we mentioned this is the third corruption case Netanyahu has just the share reminds us of the other allegations. Outstanding right. There are two other cases. One of them concerns allegations Netanyahu, accepted expensive gifts cigars champagne, jewelry from wealthy businessmen. And in another case police alleged that Netanyahu offered a deal to a newspaper publisher that he would advance legislation to help this publisher with business in exchange for positive press coverage what? What might all this mean for Netanyahu's future vulnerable is he politically he could survive this, Mary Louise, he's been in power for almost ten years Netanyahu is on track to being Israel's longest serving prime minister ever. And he's said he's not going to resign. He would stand trial if you faces an indictment. He's popular in the polls here. His political partners are still staying by his side. Elections are going to be held next year and some analysts think that Netanyahu make how early elections he's expected to win now. And he may say, well, if I win this could dissuade the attorney general from indicting me because okay, because he would have a fresh mandate from voters from the public that might help him fend off some of these legal churches. Exactly. And Trump now is supposed to reveal his Israel-Palestinian peace plan soon. That's what he said.
