"The national news. Listen to consider this, weekdays at 5, wherever you get podcasts. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve inskeep. And I'm Rachel Martin good morning. It's been easy to miss this with so much going on, but Iran is in position to make a nuclear weapon quickly if it wants. A U.S. diplomat told NPR this month the Iranians have enough uranium to make a weapon. They have slowly been going out of compliance with the nuclear agreement, since the United States withdrew from it. And that is the backdrop for an announcement today in Israel. The U.S. and Israel do not agree how to approach the Iranian threat, but today President Biden and prime minister yair lapid signed a declaration agreeing that Iran must never get a bomb. We find NPR's Daniel estrin in Jerusalem where President Biden has been visiting Daniel thanks for being here. Sure, good morning. Explain how Iran is coming up in these meetings. Well, I like Steve said Israel and the U.S. are not on the same page at all about returning to the Iran nuclear deal. Biden is emphasizing diplomacy, Israel, has reportedly been engaged in sabotage attacks on Iran. But today, the leaders of the U.S. and Israel will sign declaration and Biden will commit to using all elements of our national power to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon. And yesterday in an interview Biden said that the U.S. would attack Iran as a last resort. Now that is not new. That is just Biden reassuring the Israelis. And that is Biden's mission on this trip. He wants to reassure Israelis about their security. And reassure them about him after most Israelis embraced Trump. I mean, look at the way Biden greeted Israelis yesterday, he gave Israeli leaders fist bumps at first, and The White House said that that was COVID protocol. And I guess it's also a convenient way for Biden to avoid a handshake tomorrow when he meets the Saudi crown prince who the U.S. implicated in the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. But then very quickly Biden went for close physical contact, and he even kneeled on the floor and spoke to two elderly Holocaust survivors and gave him kisses and clasp their hands, and that scene touched a lot of Israelis. So, I mean, there's a lot of an on an agenda any time an American president goes to Israel. I mean, he's gonna meet Biden will meet with Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian authority tomorrow. What do we expect substantively to come from that meeting? Substantively is the right word because I mean, Biden yesterday said he wants to see a Palestinian state established alongside Israel, but he said it's not going to happen in the near term. And so what the administration is doing is exerting a lot of pressure behind the scenes for smaller steps to improve unequal conditions for Palestinians. They have pushed Israel to finally agree to let Palestinians have four G mobile Internet. And you know, Israeli–Palestinian progress, historically, doesn't happen without the U.S. pushing for it. So the Palestinians, you know, they want to see the U.S. offer a path forward for political improvement for freedom. Biden is much more focused on smaller steps in on integrating Israel and the wider Arab region, and he thinks that will help lead to eventual peace deal with the Palestinians. I want to ask about this other issue that killing of a Palestinian American journalist who was covering an Israeli military raid in the West Bank in May, do we know anything new there? Yeah, before Biden's visit, the U.S. announced that they thought and Israeli soldier was likely the one who shot shirin akla from Al Jazeera, Israel has not accepted that conclusion and Democrats in Congress say they want more answers. We've been in touch with the family of the journalist, they wanted to meet Biden instead, secretary blinken called them invited them to the U.S.. The White House says this will be addressed on this trip. We'll have to see. So Daniel, I have to ask, you know, Israel has become a more partisan issue in the U.S. in large part because of former president Trump's really close relationship with the former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu. And some Democrats, especially want to take a tougher line on Israel, how are those domestic politics factoring into this Biden trip? Yeah, Biden

Tumult Disrupts Israeli Parliament as Netanyahu Era Ends

"Netanyahu served as israel's prime minister for the past twelve years the vote to replace him yesterday in the knesset was partisan as what we see in congress here in the. Us sixty is fifty nine. Nays with one person abstaining. Laura king is an la times global affairs correspondent. She's currently in israel. And was there for the knesset. Vote that saw netanyahu prime minister. Welcome to the times laura. Thank you described that final. Vote itself the scene. That happened during then afterwards. Well as long as the lead up to the vote. I think since the very last moment that something could go haywire for the new coalition and so the vote was about as close as it could be it was sixty to fifty nine with one abstention and so i think there was just an enormous insipid relief on the part of the new coalition. That was trying to ask prime minister. Benjamin netanyahu that they had actually pulled this off and i heard there was heckling there towards holly bennett. That new prime minister. Yes when he rose to speak there was a really concerted amount of heckling from the the allies of the outgoing prime minister barely letting him finish his sentences at times his kids who are in the gallery and they were making little heart symbols with their hands.

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

I'm Ed Baxter. This is Bloomberg. Paul. All right. Thanks very much kid Guest for the half hour. Zach Griffiths, Wells Fargo Securities Right Strategist and Zack. We were discussing a little earlier. And now this low rates environment expected to persist for potentially some years. So let's talk about the impact on the really khanna Me. We've got a survey out from Bank of America today, saying that the tick trade is getting a bit overcrowded and Take bubble ranking on me behind a resurgence of covert is the biggest tail risk right now. So easy money seen contributed to the pile and there, it might have some impact on real estate as well. Where you looking for the Rhea World Impact of these really love rights. Yes. So I think something like a tech bubble. And these rising asset prices are something that the Fed will be keeping an eye on. But as of right now, it doesn't seem like it's something that there Concerned about and really what they're trying to do with lower rates, and all of these murders live in facilities is making sure that Money is going to consumers and businesses that they can Borrow at attractive rates in order to kind of save off the economic downturn that we've experienced in our no rebounding from Soas Faras, whether equity prices or real estate prices are going to be a concern. Or the friend That could be a concern in the future, But we don't think it's something on their radar right now. And if anything, a recent speech by friend government, Brainard suggests they couldn't be Looking to shift some of their policies from stabilization to accommodation, so if equity prices are on their radar, they're not at a level that they're concerned with right now, and they're going to continue to focus on Making sure that They're providing us much accommodation to this real economy as they can going forward, and if anything is going to remain easier for longer again, based on their new, longer run framework and focus on Maximum employment and shortfalls from maximum employment as opposed to the previous language, which focused on deviations from employment, So it's really going to come down to get in that labor market back quickly and keeping Accommodation on their confidence that they've done that. Do you think that the dollar is on their radar? Paul was asking earlier about a way to kind of get it producing higher inflation. Certainly A weaker currency in some ways would help achieve that goal. Do you think that they're watching? And when I say they, I mean fed policymakers watching the price action in the dollar against the majors. Yeah, certainly think that's on their dashboard and something that will be Keeping an eye on going forward. We've seen a big move lower and our current call is that the dollar could continue drift lower is we're going to be driven by the global financial market backdrop as well as global growth and You've really seen the dollars be a risk barometer in the sense that you know if you have a risk on scenario, the dollar's been falling and risk off that you have some brief periods of Dollars strength. But as Faras the Fed goes, I think a weaker dollar and these for a short period of time to the extent that it contributes to inflation outlook and improving and increasing inflation. That's something that they would probably Welcome for a period of time, You know, unless Out of hand with dollar weakness. We think it's probably going to be net hopeful from policy, at least in the near term. Zach, We've got a bit of a minute left. I just want to get your thoughts on the US election that previous guest didn't really consider that to be too much of a risk, regardless of who wins, markets tend to perform well, so Unless we get a contested results. What's your opinion? Yeah, The contested result is currently certainly the scenario that we think could be the most disruptive. And as Faras Outside of that possibility, they sort of look at the public health backdrop is a key determinant of Who is going to come out to be the winner and sort of what financial markets will look like. If you have Public health situation improving. We think that increases the chance of a trump victory, which would result in higher yields and steeper curve, all else equal. If you have the public health situation came to deteriorate. That probably plays well into abiding victory would be associated with.

"No Vega and we've been talking about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's plans to annex parts of the West Bank. Back with me are Omar Barghouti, a co founder of the BDS movement based in the West Bank, and Shibley Take Ami, a professor at the University of Maryland. Chibli before we go back to the question of annexation. I want to ask you about covert 19 which is a worldwide pandemic. Can you give us a sense of how the Israeli government has been handling the pandemic so far? Early on. The Israeli government was loud it for doing a very good job in confronting if they had relatively few cases there were aggressive still to this day. Actually, Israel has a relatively low percentage deaths. I think it's about 2% as opposed to, you know, work closer to 5% much of Western Europe accordingly on DSO, Anyway, they've They've almost declared victory. They started going back. And then suddenly, there is a huge resurgence toward two major crisis were helpful officials now warning that there could be a collapse in the hospital system if actions an uptick and soon But one of the fascinating thing, though, is the question of whether Netanyahu was in the middle of a crisis personal crisis with the course as well as a political crisis in putting a coalition government together whether he used the fear ofthe Corona virus early on to propel this coalition government that was unlikely. Without that, And now you've got the return of the Corona virus and a coalition government that is dysfunctional. Omar Covert 19 in Palestine. What is Thie outlook there right now in the Palestinian occupied territory, the Palestinian Authority initially at a serious lock down and was quite successful, but now we see that it's it's really getting out of control cases are increasing by the hundreds every day, and the Palestinian Authority seems to have lost control. Chibli. What are we expecting to see? And the coming weeks when it comes to annexation, the pushback was incredibly huge. Maybe more than Netanyahu, the prime minister, visual expected There's a pushback not only from Europe and the US and particularly unanimous opposition among Democrats at a time when Democrats appear to be poised to win back the White House, you know, in 2020 certainly from the Arab states with Whom the Israelis have tried to get closer, particularly the Gulf Arab states. The United Arab governments of Saudi Arabia have been sending signals that this could be a problem that could set back Of the relations that they have built up so done clear whether the prime minister will do so whether there will be some kind of domestic compromise, which obviously doesn't solve the problem because from the international Communities, point of view, even an inch of annexations annexation. They might split the difference. It wouldn't really changed the name of the game. It might create a, You know, a lot of Different responses within Israel itself, But I doubt it make it big difference internationally. The looming problem, as I see it is a possible crisis emerging with Iran. I don't know whether anyone Is really interested in confrontation. But there has been a series of mostly cyber attacks but more recently, apparently a bomb attack attributed to Israel in the New York Times reported yesterday. It put generate at least an attempted retaliation response That could also change the game in many ways, if there's an escalation and make it even harder for the Israel is to actually Imposed annexation. I You know, I think chances are that the prime minister Israel wants to announce some kind of annexation because his political base is expecting it. But it's a fluid situation. Shibley Telhami is a professor at the University of Maryland and senior fellow at the Brookings Institution. And Omar Barghouti is a co founder of the BDS Movement based in the West Bank. Thanks to you both. This is the takeaway. I'm tan Xena Vega. In 2014. Sofia Amoroso, founder of the online fast fashion site Nest ago published the book Girl Boss. It would sell more than 500,000 copies and become sort of a how to guide for ambitious young women trying to excel in male dominated corporate America. A girl boss is sort of a subcategory of female corporate leader. Young, progressive forward thinking upwardly mobile, ambitious women who cared a lot about fashion and cared a lot about feminism but also were really interested in their personal success. That's the Atlantic's Amanda Mall there, and we're going to hear more from her in just a moment. Girl boss became the template for women in the workforce, hoping to take back some of the power for themselves. That ethos was touted by leaders that companies like the Wing and Reformation, which claimed to demonstrate a commitment to progressive feminist values. As conversations about inequality and racism in the workplace have gained more traction. A number of female leaders have left the companies they founded after being accused of fostering environments that were harmful to their non white employees. Amanda Mall, is a staff writer at the Atlantic, and she recently published a piece called The Girl Boss has left the building. I asked Amanda about the appeal of the Girl Boss movement back in the twenties. Tens Well, there's a couple things that contributed to the girl boss perfect storm of sorts that happened in the mid 20 tens. The year before, Sofia Emery says book came out Cheryl Sandberg from Facebook published Lean in, which sold millions of copies and suggested to to a curious audience that the way to master your career and have it all as it were is just too then keep yourself more fully to mastering the existing power structures of Corporate America. And so those two books were sort of a 12 punch that landed with a group of young women who raised by baby boomer mothers who largely worked. During their childhoods who had as a generation created a lot of progress for women in the workplace, and those women arrived on the job market. Those daughters arrived on the job job market. You know, after the great recession when the future of sort of professional prosperity that had been promised to them had evaporated, and I think a lot of them were sort of looking around at the world that they lived in, which was not quite the world they had been promised, and we're trying to find a way to forge. Ahead in and still find that that sense of personal success. That they had been striving for for much of their lives. Who are the girl bosses that were generally talking about here, Amanda. I mean, when I say who I mean. I feel like a lot of the names that we'll talk about here are largely white women of a certain amount of Privilege and social capital and not to mention maybe economic capital. Financial capital is well am I right? Great. The people who succeed in corporate America. No matter their gender are generally white people, generally people who come from solid financial background People who are well pedigreed who went to the correct universities who got good grades who got the correct internships and had the familial financial support? To take those internships and living expensive cities for no pay and who don't have to worry.

S. presidential election from Russia to Ukraine some of you on this committee appear to believe that Russia and its security services did not conduct a campaign against our country and the pops somehow for some reason Ukraine days this is a fictional narrative that is being perpetrated in propagated by the Russian security services themselves the unfortunate truth is that Russia was the foreign power that systematically attacked democratic institutions in twenty sixteen our US correspondent David Willis is following the hearings does he agree that Fiona hill's testimony was perhaps the most scathing contribution so far well that's right media and Fiona hill denounced conspiracy theory that's been up held by many Republicans including president trump that it was Ukraine and not Russia that interfered in the twenty sixteen presidential election the entire US intelligence committee a community and the former special counsel Robert Muller concluded sometime ago that it was Russia that mounted the campaign of hacking and misinformation intended to boost the candidacy of Donald Trump nevertheless the notion of Ukrainian involvement in the presidential election was one of the things of course the president trump honest laundromat Zelinsky to look into doing that now infamous phone call on the twenty fifth of July this year and miss hill who is a rusher expert called the theory a fictional narrative one that had been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services and she urged lawmakers not to be drawn into promoting what she called politically driven full serves the public hearings appear now to be over what will the Democrats do now when you write it does appear that new mall witnesses are sure Gerald assuming that is the case at today's proceedings would mark the end of the investigation phase of the impeachment proceedings that would mean that the evidence is being gathered but now go to the house Judiciary Committee for it to to decide on whether to draft formal charges what are known as articles of impeachment against president trump sometime after the thanksgiving holiday which is in a week's time it's expected that the house of representatives will vote on whether or not to impeach the president and if they do then and and he is impeached in the charges will go to the Republican controlled Senate for a trial on whether to remove him from office that would require a two thirds majority meaning the least twenty Republicans as well as all the Democrats in the race independence in the Senate would have to vote against the president and that seems unlikely David Willis Israel's prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has insisted that he will not resign despite being indicted on corruption charges on Thursday the country's Attorney General said that nobody was above the law and he confirmed that Mr Netanyahu would be charged with bribery breach of trust and fraud in a televised address to prime minister responded angrily and said the investigation was based on lies okay one of them then for anyone sure enough in tonight's we are witnessing an attempted coup against a serving prime minister based on fabrications and attended biased investigative process in this tainted process they went off to the truth they were off to me absolutely Mr Netanyahu's indictment comes amid a political standoff in Israel following two inconclusive general elections this year our correspondent Barbara pleasure is in Jerusalem within hours of the news Benjamin Netanyahu came out fighting he looks shaken as he addressed a news conference he attacks law enforcement's and the country's legal institutions his tone was a marked contrast to that of the Attorney General of a high medal believes who announced the criminal charges in three corruption cases he was a former ally to the prime minister but said he had to protect the rule of law it does look like a sort of a short lived all combined with a heavy heart I decided to invite him over the line with a heavy heart but also wholeheartedly out of a deep sense of duty the rule of law and public interest the accusations relate to cases that involve gifts Mister Netanyahu received from wealthy figures as well as his alleged efforts to get better media coverage in return for favors it's unclear what today's development means for his future it's the first time a sitting prime minister has been indicted here but according to the law he can keep his job until there's a verdict his opponents are saying he needs to step down and his political allies will have to decide whether to stick with him either way the prime minister has made clear he'll continue to fight for his political survival Barbara Platt usher in Jerusalem in recent years Chile has often been described as a Latin American success story but over the past month it's been looking increasingly unstable the country's been shaken by violent street protests which have killed more than twenty people and injured thousands of others the new report the human rights group Amnesty International has accused the Chilean security forces of deliberately injuring demonstrators are America's editor you're not the first shot told me more they said that the chief of police and the the army that they used the vilest deliberately I Casey at the demonstrators in order to discourage further participation in in the in the protests so they said that they attacked them the use sexual violence against them and that that is a result of that five people were killed and thousands were injured and there are many reports specifically if I remember of injuries to through the eyes of some of the projects that something that took some time for that to come out in the news and and there's more than two hundred and seventy cases people say it's more than that all four protesters were shot in the eye but guns all rubber bullets on Tuesday the the head of the Chilean police finalists banned the use of of those weapons a case processes these are very serious charges that I'm with you to national is lodging how has the Chilean government responded well the only comments by presence of US him being in a so far it was that easy there may have been some cases where the security forces disregarded the rules of engagement for mass demonstrations so he acknowledged that they made that may have been cases where that where there was too much force used what I find amazing here is that the fact that I'm missing some national saying that there was a deliberate strategy devised by the government and the security forces to try to intimidate the monsters who had a month of protest that still going on they started with protests about a rise in the metro fares in Santiago but then became a much bigger movement a case in a quality in Chile in the that still a lot to be done politically to solve that problem get out of Russia the World Health Organization is warning that four out of five children are not getting enough physical exercise their analysis of eleven to seventeen year olds is the first global study of childhood activity Bangladesh was the most active country while South Korea was bottom of the global league table well we're joined by reporter Gareth Barlow has been looking at the study Gareth there's a pretty big this is a pretty big study of adolescence worldwide what were the main findings when they found they really aren't doing enough exercise by any stretch he looked at data from one point six million children around the globe and it found that eighty one percent of them dying for fill the world health organization's suggested daily exercise requirements they say should be doing an hour a day eighty one percent don't meet that mark and the report found that goes a worse than boys let's say from doctor Regina because old she's the studies main author girls Clovelly were less active than boys we found eighty five percent of girls did not meet the recrimination versus seventy eight percent invoice so a seven percent gender difference at the global level this gender difference has increased over the time period we looked at I'm not gender differences almost ubiquitous of the hundred and forty six countries studies only for two goes do more exercise than boys and like you say it's a nationwide in a global issue find it as the most active but still two thirds of children they're not doing enough exercise shockingly only three percent of children do enough daily exercise and of course every will be looking to what's to blame and that the obvious culprit seems to be technology technology sounds great for example is a good indication that way any sports gaming online gaming is huge and children we have quite a while well well he's films but not doing enough exercise for the rest of.
