"That's wrong is my OBD or been David. And now it's time for our second discussion. So Miriam having said it to yuli, is it time to say it to Simon Ferris? Yeah, they are connected, I believe. As Rx magazine recently reported in 1984, diplomat and politician Colette avital came back to Israel after a three year foreign ministry posting in Paris. Against the backdrop of an economic crisis in Israel with 450% inflation, recent elections had produced a deadlock. This had led to the formation of a labor Li could national unity government and a rotation agreement with labor leader Shimon Peres serving first as prime minister to be swapped out two years later by Likud leader yitzhak shamir. Colette avital, who moved to Israel from Romania in 1950 when she was ten, was then a career diplomat, but she was also a socialist leaning laborite in her bones. She did what any brilliant ambitious mid career political animal would do in her position. She reached out to try to get a job with the new administration, perhaps as Paris media adviser. Yossi balen, who was Paris cabinet secretary told her that her name was proposed to Paris for the media adviser job, but quote he rejected you out of hand because you're a woman..

"Chief in Tokyo. To Myanmar now where the junta leader min hung land has announced the release of more than 5000 prisoners arrested for protesting the February 1st military coup. Ronan Lee, the academic and author now joins me to look at the latest situation in the country. Ronan, what did the leaders say about the prisoner release? Well, the releasing they say 5000 prisoners. We understand that some of them will be political prisoners, but what they're indicating is not a relaxation of repression. The repression is going to continue. There's a complete lack of transparency about in fact who is being released. There are serious questions, of course, to be asked about why many of those people are in jail in the first place. I mean, these are people who were who were arrested and jailed, certainly there were not anything that you'd consider to be a fair trial. But many of them were gelled simply for being participants in anti military activities and anti coup activities. And some of them that have been in jail or the family members of activists. So when the military weren't able to get their hands on the activists they wanted to try and lure them in they'd arrest children, wives and husbands. But what's important here is the signal that this sends and the signal is that the military is incredibly embarrassed because of international activities that have happened this week. They've been utterly snubbed by ASEAN. And they have a deep concern about what that means domestically for them. And so is that why the prisoners have been released? With that question with that question. So as EN has damaged the domestic legitimacy of the military junta. The junta always relied upon Asian to give it some sense of international legitimacy. They were of course critical of bodies like the UN that have that message stronger on human rights. But as EN has a view that it does indeed intervene in sovereign states and tends not to get involved in domestic politics. So the John to had a feeling that it could, it could leverage as the end for its own interests and by demonstrating that Asian was giving was giving the crew leaders some international legitimacy, it could try to diminish resistance to the coup and to military rule domestically. And that's all changed because ASEAN has disinvited the coupe and mingling from the ASEAN form. If they are saying something to major international meeting, it was scheduled to include will include President Biden. So this is a big snub for me and mass military. Will there be representation from the country that just isn't from the military, though? We're led to believe that there'll be one Asian has called non political representation. And what that will be remains to be seen. It's very unclear how you could achieve that. But what's most significant is that ASEAN has decided that there will not be representation from anybody that represents the military government. So it's been seen by the military as they've taken it as an affront. State media today says that they are the military run state media saying we're the only ones taking seriously the threat that is posed by what they call the terrorism of the alternate government. The alternate government is the national unity government made up of everyone else within Myanmar, the politicians that were elected at last November's general election in the country representatives of ethnic minority groups representatives of young people and of women's groups and of trade unions within Myanmar. They're what the military now portrays as terror groups, which is ludicrous. When you consider that these are the groups that represent the will of the people of Myanmar. But the military presents the situation that Asia now has gone soft on terror, rather than a situation where Asian is acknowledging the will of the people within Myanmar as he ends albeit reluctantly creating a huge reputational issue now for the Myanmar for the Myanmar military. And this will encourage stronger resistance to the military code. I mean, as you said, as he has done this, excuse me, reluctantly, they don't normally intervene in the domestic affairs of member states. What's pushed them to this point? Well, I think there was going to be a huge reputation issue for Asia and itself. You simply couldn't have a situation where President Biden and other world leaders would turn up to an international would turn up to the essen forum with someone like minon Lang a genocide or criminal on the same platform of them. So I think there was an issue for Asian that to maintain any level of international credibility themselves. They needed to make sure that world leaders didn't run away from their meetings. And I think that was the real potential. I think there was a very real likelihood that President Biden and others might have felt that they would not be able to attend, attend as he and meetings, if figures like minon Lang were on were proposed to be on the platform. So while as he and came to this reluctantly, it's actually a very positive step in terms of promoting democracy within Myanmar. So back in April, Asian agreed of 5 point plan with the military to deescalate the crisis. What does this latest move mean for that plan? Does it still stand? Very little happened was happened with the plan. Has managed now to appoint an envoy. I mean, it's been a better part of 6 months. There's been no the envoy hasn't visited me and mom. It's been made clear by the junta that the envoy won't be allowed to meet with opposition political figures. So the representatives of the people are on census and the ousted president of the country. So there have been very little progress. And this was a big problem for us again that it had stored as the international body that was telling the world that problems within Myanmar, we can get involved in and you should work through us. But then nothing had been achieved. So by the time we come to October, there is now heavy pressure on ASEAN to stop being weak and really this is now come to a head. And it's come to a head not because SEN wanted to. But it's come to a head because the rest of the international community has said to us again, we'll look if you want to maintain any level of international legitimacy. You're going to have to do something positive here that signals that Asian is not comfortable with the state of politics, domestically within Myanmar. Hence the release of these some 5000 prisoners. How many political prisoners does that leave incarcerated? And what are the conditions in which they're being held? Well, the conditions are horrific. Know that there have been some hundreds that have been tortured to death while in prison. There'll be certainly more than 5000 still within prison. I mean, this is an attempt I think by the military jaunty to distract from its embarrassment with ASEAN. They do this from time to time. This is no sign that they're intending to relax their oppression or anything of the sort that that will continue..

"Hills is the world we start with a big meeting kicking off in new york. Today it's opening day at the seventy six session of the united nations general assembly. One hundred ninety three member states are taking part but to countries present an immediate challenge. The first is afghanistan and the question here is whether the un will officially recognize the taliban as the legitimate representative of the afghan government. The other country is me and it was taken over in a military coup back in february which was followed by a deadly crackdown by the army to governments claim to run myanmar. So the un has to decide which one to recognize the world's southeast asia correspondent. Patrick win reports on. What the un's decision on me and mark could mean for the troubled country who deserves to run the country of myanmar for a lot of folks. That's pretty obvious. It's the people who won election last november only they are now tormented by military that has seized power and instead of sitting in parliament there in prison or on the run. Some of them remain underground in me emma. They don't go out. They rely on their relatives to get them food. Many of them have to change locations. Philip anivit worked with many of these elected officials as a un adviser until last year he still keeps in touch when you have to move to use networks of safe houses that have been settled by activists to evade arrest and probably torture better ashamed. Once they get wrist being hunted. These ousted leaders have managed to set up what they call the national unity government. It's still making decisions for the country. Often over encrypted apps it has a ministry of education holding on line classes. It's ministry of finance takes donations and it even has a brand new army which is working with armed indigenous groups in the borderlands to overthrow the central military and restore democratic rule. Yes they even have a battle anthem..

"The national unity government and they can take up arms against the military or they can put up with the military gionta. And i think the way they'll be feeling now. Is that that any ambivalence that they might have felt on their own part about taking up arms. Will that's been clarified. Now and endorsement. From the national unity government will be seen domestically as an endorsement by on sense achie- for taking up arms. And i think that's what's important in many ways. It was her actions during the nineteen hundred onwards where she endorsed peaceful approach. She prioritize negotiation and and really. She was seen as a politician who was against using violence. To get rid of the military and people will people will remember that but p and people follow too and people now though will look at the look at what the national government has said and they will see that this is aung san suu chee directing them to take up arms against the me and military. It's it's a it's a it's a bold move and it i think represents a clear change in direction within me and my and a strong rebuke of as the as well This week as yen serve as he ends envoy to me and maronites that that he had reached some agreement with the military that there would be negotiated. There could be a negotiation and a ceasefire For for a period of time this is a strong rebuke of as fans role within me. And my which has not been seen by the opposition as as legitimate. It's been seen as as as backing the military. So ronin very briefly. How should the international community reacting to this move. Well the have to react because next week. The united nations has to make a decision at its credentials committee about which which which representatives of myanmar it will allow to cease in general assembly. Will it allow the representative national unity government to sit there is the legitimate representative of me and my or will it would reject that representative and endorse the military. I i i think the shrewd move. Now on the part of the international community is to back the people of myanmar and to endorse the representative of the national unity. Government and to provide provide strong support to the national unity government. These the people that represent the people in not the military. Join the military june to seen domestically as illegitimate and it holds onto power through violence and terror and the international community should back the people of me and my in getting them out of power. Thank you so much for joining us in this aaron lee. you're listening to the globalist as a one.

"Since seizing power. The start of february men must hunter has imposed a lengthy and vicious crackdown against protesters. However running in the comparative background has been a so-called parallel government. Message has been one of relative peace until now the national unity government has formerly called for the people to engage in people's defensive war against the hunter calling people to revolt against them in every corner of the country to stockpile food and medicine and to avoid unnecessary. Travel all to tell us more. I'm joined by ronin leaf visiting scholar at queen mary university of london's international state crime initiative and author of the book man mazorra hindu genocide identity history and hate speech. Good morning ronan. Gets you in the studio. I mentioned a moment ago. That the this so-called parallel government has been running comparatively in the background. What exactly They've been doing. These are the people that represent the politicians that were elected last november at the general election within me and my dad the people also who represent ethnic minorities within me and my and and other groups within the country that have have come together since the code represent young people and represent Th the voices that have been ignored in politics in myanmar may be over the last five years. So it's it's a broad coalition of people who are regarded by the public of me and my as the legitimate government of the country. The these are the people that have the support of the vast majority of myanmar's fifty million people and since the code. They've been very clear that they oppose military rule. They've issued various statements. About what sort of country they want me and to be once they can get the military out of power but significantly and the has been a a loss of violent opposition to the myanmar joint since february but significantly has been a view on meant by many people. When me and my that the national unity government is amby had been ambivalent towards that violence or not prepared to endorse it wholesale. That's changed now and exactly and it has changed very clearly to a more aggressive position. What are the exactly they calling on. The people of men might do will have called for people's revolutionary war. They've called on the people to take every step that they can to remove the military from power important to remember that this a couple of strands of thought within myanmar opposition as to how to deal with the military one strand is is obviously that that's been adopted by particularly by ethnic minority groups over the last many decades which is to take them on militarily to engage in political violence and to fight the military and to try and force them out of power. The other strand has been. Broadly regarded as the sense that she approach peaceful forbearance Patients prioritizing negotiation. And hoping that you can ultimately convinced the military to hand over power peacefully. Now the this is a sign that the the national unity government dominated by people connected with long since it. She has changed direction and has decided that peaceful forbearance isn't going to work and that means that we think going to see a much more violent future within myanmar. it takes it in a certain direction that once. You've started this. You can't stop it water people's fears for what might follow. We'll it's what we feared. When the coup occurred in february that there could be state collapse within myanmar. a and. i think the reason the hasn't been state collapsed within me and marriage. The national unity government didn't wholesale endorse political violence so that there was the formation of a people's defense groups defense organizations within the country so these these groups of people form themselves into into into local and regional armies and linking up with with already armed ethnic minority ethnic groups within the country. But the was a that. The energy didn't support that overwhelmingly whole-heartedly. That's completely changed. And i think what we all now see is something that looks a lot closer to the sort of traditional civil war that we might have seen in other parts of the world where where at conflict and violence is far more widespread importantly as well the spinner reaching out by the national unity government clarification that they support the sorts of civil disobedience movements that have been very active since the coup and again. That's that's been another element of opposition to the military where there was a perception of some ambivalence on the part of the national unity government. They've clarified that entirely. This is now this is now a national unity government that is prepared to endorse every group within the country that he's taking on the military and that wants to get the military out of power whether they're going to do that through civil disobedience or whether they're going to do that through violence if you're assist isn't of man and you had witnessed the protests that have been so violently clamped down upon by the by the hunter and you were then quietly supporting the the parallel government hoping hoping hoping that something might change and a peaceful resolution might come to this. How might you be feeling right now. I think this is a strong sign to those people. Because i think i think people in that category will with the sorts of people who were hoped hoped and prayed that they would be able to get the military out of power through peaceful means and. I think that this has been a. This'll be a wakeup call for them that they've got a. They've got a decision that they've got to make. They can follow the direction of the national unity government and they can take up arms against the military or they can put up with the military gionta. And i think the way they'll be feeling now..

"They're back in february but the democratic resistance is not going away and now the leaders of myanmar's mars opposition are declaring all out war against the country's military rulers. Either alania d delude to you tolan. Apd the official call for all citizens of me and march to revolt. It was posted on facebook. The main speaking as lachey la the acting president of the national unity government government in exile composed of elected officials who fled into hiding after the february coup. Their goal now is to launch an armed uprising against the military and revived me and mars democracy. The world southeast asia correspondent. Patrick wind is on the line with me. How will this declaration of war. Change things on the ground in myanmar. Well i think it's a warning. Marco that this resistance which has already started is about to really intensify after this declaration of war. They're asking everyday people to stockpile food and medicine. Everyday people are told to spy on troop movements and informed the revolutionaries if anyone works for the military government even just as like a tax collector or engineer. Or even a secretary they are put on notice that you should quit and join our movement. Instead or else. I do have to say i'm mostly seeing positive reactions from people in myanmar about this declaration of war. There's just so much rage. Marco at the military which is quite vicious and not very competent at running a country since they've taken over the banking system collapsed. The hospital system has collapsed in. Covert is rampant. So i do have to caution that this revolutionary government it mostly exists online with these exiled politicians hiding out and communicating over encrypted apps and making statements over social media. They don't have any buildings or any liberated area just yet. So how will the resistance of the hunt actually fight this war. They've now declared do they have an army and can match with the generals. Have at this point. It can't match what the generals have they do have an army but one very embryonic state and not a conventional one so after the coup all of these people young and old started slipping into the jungles contacting armed indigenous. Rebel groups in myanmar. And asking them for help you know. Can you train us so that we can take this fight back to the cities where we live in recent months. You've seen this embryonic army spring into action assassinating officials by the hundreds bombing. Police stations and on a weekly basis carrying out all sorts of sabotage operations like blowing up cell phone towers owned by the military. So this is going to be a guerilla war. It's going to be more like the ira than two armies going toe to toe. We'll see what happens. I should note. That monsoon season is just now ending in myanmar. Things are starting to dry out and that's when people usually start the real fighting. What did the military government have to say about this declaration of war patrick. Oh well they said this national unity government..

"But that i'm able to actually bridge between these different sectors. And as i mentioned before i feel like naphtali bennett is someone who really can't he has a security background. He has a business background. He has a religious background. He knows how to talk to to secular people properly right like he bridges all of those different worlds and yeah it makes it for very small niche electro market but on a leadership and a political scale platform. He's got everything he needs and he's less interested in. I'm going to get the most seats. And i'm gonna the most most rightwing government but he's actually trying to create a coexistence and the consensus which is a very different goal. But maybe that's what he's trying to still. How does that translate into votes. Gets to stay in how he has no political. Let's he will be gone and it's happened to him when he tried running on a party of secular religious right. Let's just let we're working on this. I think your question is coming from the assumption that this government is going to break the pot which it very well may do no. We're not even. I don't i don't think it will break apart. I think being in that case. And i think the government can last years will pass a budget of two years and it may pass another budget and then we'll see what i think it's passing a budget. Let's say two three three at this point to you. Government would success of stability ads. What we've had in the last couple of years.

I'm going to be prime minister for two years and then lead for a year. Okay maybe he's done at that point. I miss matt. He right now is the prime minister. He also the head of the party called yamina. You mean is split. And i'd see different reports on. How many are happy that he's doing real. How many whenever it is he. Now as the prime minister with seven seats there is no way. If we hold an election tomorrow you mean it would get seven seats. There's no way it's not clear that it would pass the threshold. Be an existing political party. Spend g's question because if in four years let's say the government last four years after two years of being prime minister do you think the amina alawi will grow or does it have to create a new party identity in order to retain power now. Would i would say. I would say if you look at his career. He has nothing a flexible and his party identity. He has switched from the jewish home party. Talking you said. I say that he said i am now at the age where you have to listen to what i mean and not what i said if i said that's crazy. He's only been initiative. That's his entire. He's the dictator of asia. John so but but but bennett was jewish home a new right with charge and then there was now. He's right word. I guess it'd be english name for yamina. he's he. Is he in a sense.

His party and he still got more votes than anybody else. She have a guy by the name of Naftali Bennett. Just listen quickly. He runs to the right of Netanyahu says he's not conservative enough. He runs in his own party. You need 120. Actually, they have 120 ministers. Excuse me, 100 and 20 members of the Knesset, their parliament. His party got six. Six. Lot less than 5%. He's now the sitting prime minister of Israel. He swings to the left, He embraces the left wing parties. He embraces the Arab Party, which is really a jihadi party movement. Because he wants to be prime minister is 48. He won't wait. It's absolutely unbelievable, actually. And so by one vote. Effectively. One member they take over the government. This guy lied to the people of Israeli lie to the people who voted in his party. Hundreds of thousands, Not many, but still To get what he wanted to get. And the media. Think this is a unity effort. It's a unity effort. Unity around what Have these disparate groups. Anti Zionist pro Zionist, most of them anti Anti American. In some cases hard left, they call them center left there.

Could This Be the End of Benjamin Netanyahu's Political Career?

"Of Benjamin Netanyahu beyond wise to strike him off, But it looks like a key Israeli opposition party has backed Unity government, excluding Mr Netanyahu, Man in question is the ultra nationalist leader Naftali Bennett, who announced that his party would join talks to form a governing coalition with the centrist Party leader Yah Lapid. Mr Netanyahu's reacted saying the proposed deal would weaken Israel. Oh, in ultimate is senior correspondent at the 24 news child in Tel Aviv and joins us now. Oh, and thanks for coming on I mean, most people if they know about Bennett, they'll know that he has more in common with Netanyahu, uh, with the anyone else s. So why is this happening now? And will it work? Do you think It's happening now. Because over the course of two years, Benjamin Netanyahu has lost more and more pieces of the Israeli right. And there are hundreds of thousands of Israelis who have gone to the polls again, most recently in our last elections and have said they are right wing, but they would rather have a government that is dominated by the center left then have Benjamin. It's now return to power. A number of political parties went to voters and said, You have two options. Option A Netanyahu staying in power Option B, a center left government even though you voter are right wing voter and hundreds of thousands of Israeli right wing voters opted for option B on so that basically led those parties to become a balance of power and then cooked up with the center left. And put themselves in a position on the cusp of ousting Israel's longest serving prime minister. Right. So you suggest that this has been going on for a while, anyway, a sort of Ah, drift or removed. But hasn't he been able to present himself as Mr Security? That's who he's always presented himself as we've heard his comments, saying, Who's going to look after the settlers? That kind of thing? Doesn't that count anymore? Accounts among the large spar thought that Israeli voters and again don't forget this coalition if it's formed, has a very narrow majority. And Netanyahu still in every single poll has a plurality of the votes when the public's asked who they want to be prime minister, But it's not enough. It's not enough for him to get a majority in the

UN Rights Chief Urges Libya, EU, to Protect Migrants Crossing the Central Mediterranean

"With hundreds of migrants still dying and shipwrecks in the central mediterranean. The u n high commissioner for human rights on wednesday called on libya's unity government and european union countries to urgently reform their search and rescue policies and practices to better save lives. Michelle bachelet said the real tragedy. Is that so much of this. Suffering and death is preventable. People drown either because help comes too late or not at all. She said meanwhile those who are rescued face long delays at sea before they can safely disembark or a return to libya which is not a safe harbor due to ongoing violence. Her office has issued a report which notes that at least six hundred and thirty two people have died on the central mediterranean route to europe this year despite a significant drop in the overall number of migrants making this journey in recent years the report expressed concern that the eu and its member states have significantly cut back on maritime search and rescue operations while humanitarian. Ngos have been blocked from carrying out lifesaving rescues at the same time. Private commercial vessels have increasingly avoided helping migrant boats in distress because of delays and standoffs over bringing them to land

"Most important thing that. I think happened this week on the in.

Mario Draghi Is Asked to Form Government in Italy

"We begin. Today in italy where mario draghi. The former chief of the european central bank has been invited by at least president cemetery to form a unity government following the collapse of the coalition talks among italy's political parties late last night in rome. The political tumult in italy was sparked by the resignation of his prime minister. Giuseppe comtesse last week and a little earlier today. A europe editor at large at stalker gave us this. Rundown of how events unfolded in rome after those coalition talks broke down yesterday evening now after that happened the president mattino della addressed tv cameras and said basically. There were two options. One would be go to early elections. That would be two years early. Because i not scheduled till twenty twenty three or he could cool together at this technocrat government. Basically an institutional government made up of known politicians. Now the reason. He said he's going to do. This is because italy is really into difficult situation. There's a health crisis and economic crisis financial crisis he. He basically listed a host of reasons. Why it would be a bad decision to call early. Elections the fact that the government wouldn't be executing its food functions during campaigning. The fact that everyone would be out on the streets trying to win votes at stockholm articles. Europe editor at large speaking to us from milan a little earlier today at kiara as described italy's president has effectively removed the politics from italy's government by instituting the so-called technocratic government. How remarkable to give a bit of a longer view on this or a move. Is this in the recent history of italian politics. and what do you foresee the political implications. I suppose of this move might be in italy in the months to come well thomas. I think it's an interesting way to put it. That president material has removed the politics from this because yes he is proposing technocrat but i think his decision is very shrewd political. Move actually You know we've talked on a monocle minute about the importance of the role of montana. And all of this you know. We focused a lot about squabbles between different parties and former prime ministers and future prime ministers. And what's going to be but actually at centro vitale is president. La la la who has made a very very intelligent move in completely. You know upending. Everybody's expectations and bringing mario draghi to the table. This is a name that a lot of parties will find difficult to say no to but that certain parties will feel almost impossible to approve and in order to understand that you have to know a little bit about the background of the last ten years of italian. Politics really is a long game. The relevance of this moment actually goes back almost a decade and it goes back to. Mario monti's government in twenty eleven ha de italian history of technocratic governments and how relation feels about them. It goes back to the fact that it's virtually the rise of the technocratic government supported by establishment. Parties sent left center right to the essentially boyd. The extreme success of movements like moving five stars the moon five stars was born out of dissatisfaction with the establishment and establishment is the pd. The establishment is better screenings party and is the technocrats the people coming from europe who are immediately resonate with this idea of steady and finance and banks. Which doesn't actually go down very well done throat of italians that were really really badly scarred by the financial crisis i think when you look at the last decade of italian politics you look at a real series of governments to have an lasted very long and remote qabli. A lot of them governments that were directly elected by the people. You know we've had technocratic governments we've had really you know we've had coalition governments where you know the majority of was really really tight whack. Coalition talks went on for ages. We've had internal betrayals and you know people come to the fore. Even though they hadn't really been selected by a popular vote. So i think what this might do for the overall mood of of the population is bring back all those feelings off just simply not really having a political choice in all of this and may actually give more fire to all of these populist parties that made their fortune out of the situation like this in the past and if we do come to early elections which has not yet. A possibility is completely off the cards. It may actually paying favor in on those populist parties which we saw in coalition government a couple of years ago three years ago. Now but that never expressed a proper. I guess prime minister political prime minister. Let's remember that the content much as we think about it now as appropriate political figure he was also a lawyer by profession. He was chosen by the moving five stars as a relatively neutral name. That would put together a coalition between moving and lega. But we haven't really had a party leader as prime minister in quite a long

Swearing-in of new Israeli government delayed by infighting

"As both prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu and then head of the opposition Ganz repeatedly failed to form a coalition. The political deadlock is over tonight. The pair will inaugurate a new unity. Government Mister Netanyahu will be prime minister for eighteen months before handing over to Mr. Gaunt's swearing in late by day after America's secretary of State Mike pompeo broke a travel hiatus to fly Jerusalem and meet with both leaders there. He discussed joint efforts to counter of influence in the region campaign that we have been part of To reduce the resources that the ayatollah has to inflict harm here and Israel and all across. The world has borne fruit. It has been successful. And we're GONNA stay added. There's still work to do what wasn't publicly addressed or Israel's plans for the West Bank mister. Netanyahu campaigned on promises to annex parts of the Occupied Territories. That's just one point of contention between his Likud Party and Mister Ganz's blue and white coalition as the long-awaited government gets down to work two political rivals who've been swearing in their campaigns not to trust each not to allow each other to be prime. Minister are now basically going to guarantee each other as prime minister over the next three or four years feffer. It's our Israel correspondent reporting from Jerusalem. Any guns in the parties supported him in arranging. This government will receive an equal number of ministers in cabinet ministers of Likud and the other parties which supported and it's supposed to have equal footing INC cabinet and both their prime minister and the ultimate primates and into the our against who will have those titles and swapped those titles eighteen months. Both of them have the power veto over the government's agenda so that's the basic framework of how this is supposed to work but obviously almost any kind of government decision policy could lead to a crisis one of the things that's lingered over this question for sixteen months. Is this corruption trial of Mister? Netanyahu faces how will that work under this unity government ten days from the swearing? Elvis new government now is scheduled to Face Jerusalem District Court in three charges of fraud one charge of bribery and now of course is denying all. These charges doesn't seem that he can evade his day in court and to make sure that the court system does hold to account the Justice Ministry has been handed to one of the many guns his allies. They're saying is going to ensure that the case goes ahead but we can expand to try and find various ways to erode and undermined the case against him. We're already seeing from various Internet proxies in the media very vicious campaign against the Attorney General. Who decided on the charges against him? And this will continue to be the undercurrent to the new government's first few months so assuming that this unity government can get past the corruption trial and get back to governing. How much faith do you have in them? Being able to stick together given how much mistrust there is between these guys. Well the distrust within this new government is endemic. And there's no question about it and gets into narrow. Spent sixteen months slagging each other off so suddenly beginning to work together. Maybe have a daunting prospect. But yes I remember. That guy has in the past. Been the commander of the Israeli army underneath also. He does have a history of working well together with the Asian. The new ministers in this government will be eager to get down to work and they really sick and tired of campaigning. For the last sixteen months is really politics has been in limbo so I think that despite the distrust of there is amongst them that they will get down to governing these over the next few Muslim tried to overcome whatever obstacles and dislikes they have for each other and another big question in Israel. Recently is the plan for annexation which seems to be going ahead of the coalition agreement between the could against his blue and white party does include the clothes that the issue of annexation as it appears in the peace plan proposed by Donald Trump back in January will be brought to cabinet and the parliament from the beginning of July. So that issue there and we know that gaunt's and some of his partners are not very enthusiastic about going ahead with annexing large parts of the occupied West Bank and that certainly is a potential minefield for this new government. But the real question is is now himself really eager? To Go ahead annexation. He's used this last year or so as an issue to rally his right wing base over the election. Campaigns is very risk averse leader. Despite his gung-ho image he doesn't really like to endanger the status quo so why go ahead and jeopardize that by pushing on annexation? I think we'll hear there ten hour continuing to promise on accession to his supporters but finding reasons to delay and then lot will depend on the outcome of the provincial November if Donald Trump news is the next administration is much less supportive of annexation than it. May Well Happen and is it that accession push the tacit approval of the trump administration. The reason why America's secretary of State's Mike Pompeo was in Israel yesterday his first trip abroad in nearly two months. So according to sources in Perez enter our that's not the reason he flew halfway around the world and his first international trips since the beginning of the pandemic according to compels remarks. What we've been hearing from people both on the Israeli and the American signs were in the meetings and main issue was actually Iran and the various concerns Israel and the United States have about escalations of tensions with Iran in the region and the other issue that compared brought up quite pointedly was China and America's concerns over China's lack of cooperation regarding cove nineteen and America's reservations with various projects. That Israel is cooperating with Chinese. Big Infrastructure Programs. Won't that they'd ministration. Wants Israel to freeze choices out of putting all that together. How likely do you think that this government will serve out its term as written so I think for the next year or so as the government staying together because nobody really wants to go back to election campaign mode again? This people have really exhausted. Elections at the same time is just beginning to emerge from corona virus shutdown. So I think for these at least twelve month period now the government will somehow stick together. The real question on this government's future rises towards the end of twenty twenty one when Netanyahu gates have to swap places and gates becomes. The prime minister would only be the ultimate prime minister. I think then we'll We'll see whether they can actually contemplate relinquishing power. But probably the next year year and a half Israeli politics will be relatively

Netanyahu's future still uncertain after Israeli election

"Let's turn to Israel. This week is rarely voters went to the polls for the third time in a year. Yes a year So first of all of the results that ninety percent in the last time I checked prime minister bb. Netanyahu was winning and projected to win fifty nine seats in. Israel's parliament the Knesset so that's good news for bb because he's five or six seats ahead of any guns from the blue and white party whose his chief rival but it still not be enough to end this electoral purgatory citizens. And here's why so. Israel's system is not like ours. You don't win the election. And then you're in charge. You have to build a coalition that controls sixty one of the one hundred twenty seats in the Israeli Knesset in the last two elections and Netanyahu Angolans have failed in that coalition building task So now they're gonNA try again. Ben Is pretty depressing. That voters didn't care about the fact that Netanyahu is going to stand trial in a few weeks on corruption charges in fact. Bb has gained votes since the September elections so cool. It's also depressing for those of us. Who WANT A two states solution in Israel because both candidates out there talking about annexing the West Bank? Interestingly an alliance of Arab voters did well in selection and They're now the third biggest party in Israel. So That's interesting chaining dynamic but you know in the near future. I think a lot of people worried that Israel is careening towards a constitutional crisis or even a fourth election because bb is about to stand trial and will likely demagogue and say fake news and say it's a witch hunt to get him just like trump because they're the same person. Yeah and I feel like we've had the same conversation now. Three times And this question will be. Can he can form a coalition get to sixty votes He may need the help of avenue or Lieberman Israeli politician. Who's kind of become quite An ENEMY OF BBC. At least in in that case you know we could return to one of the formulas that we talked about in the fall. Some form of unity government or agreement where they rotate as prime minister's all this is pretty bleak because Israel can't break this logjam. Bbc poising their politics with increasingly extremist positions. You know we've evolved in the third election. All the way to the fish in the West Bank Each election it kind of gets worse in terms of BB's platform on the Palestinians It speaks Not just the polarization in Israeli society in that. Bbc has kind of a big media apparatus and demagogues the opposition. But also you know Benny. Gones is just not a good politician. You know for those who don't follow as closely like you know he's a former military guy kind of the centrist who could be a you know a safe space for a bunch of different parties but political talent like he he he didn't wasn't a natural communicator. And I think the only way for the CENTRE-LEFT WE'VE IN THE CENTER. I guess in Israel to really break through is that they're going to need someone with more political chops at some point. They're going to need a leader or you know grassroots movement combined with lear that they can overcome bb's support which is not a majority of the country but is a strong minority in enough to kind of hold the line here in prevents someone else like. Gods from winning so You know we could be headed towards a messy coalition politics in some bizarre unity government Tumbled over whether these indictments against bb go forward. In any event. I think the situation with the Palestinians is very grim And is really politics until bb can finally exit stage right here. And hopefully the center of the centre-left can get stronger leader. We're going to be kind of stuck in this place. Maybe they can borrow one of our. Amer candidates primary speaking of which Last week we talked about Bernie Sanders decision to skip the APEC conference. The Big Pro Israel lobby conference so At that that this weekend the Israeli ambassador to the UN Danny Danon said we don't want Sanders APEC. We don't want him in Israel. Anyone who calls our prime minister a racist either a liar. Ignorant fool or both which is very charming The CEO of a pack hard core also obliquely accused sanders of demonizing Israel. Nate that gave Mike Pence a platform to smear Bernie into Democrats side. Israel's enemies so it was nice of these folks to almost immediately prove that Bernie's fishing was a wise one. And I would suggest everyone listening that if you want a vibrant democratic Israel Checkout Jay Street. Yeah Yeah it to me. The the biggest problem here right is the the massive red carpet that they roll out every time for bb and his biggest goons and for like pants and Mike Pompeo and these guys and then you know they they have some democratic members of Congress. We've always gone to a pack. And they they try to claim. This broad bipartisan view of things. This is not on the level here. You know APEC wants to be able to put the bipartisan stamp of approval on itself while relentlessly over the last several years. Supporting the agenda of the Likud party in Israel and the Republican Party in the United States relentlessly attacking Barack Obama. Frankly putting us in this shitty situation that we're in where we pulled out of the Iran nuclear agreement so actively harming US interests with the end of the Iran nuclear agreement and then complaining that people don't show up at their conference. I mean come on guys like And then you know dunking on everybody because a bunch of other candidates like send videos like the. I hate to break it to you. The people send videos to a lot of things. Right also is a racist. I mean he's he's says racist things on the regular choice last laws that devalues human beings who happen to be Arab. Yeah yeah I mean and and every election we get this rhetoric about the Arabs voting is in an inherently bad when they are citizens of Israel. You know so Like I I'm I'm kind of you. Know over this debate We'll keep watching the election

Recurring Human Rights Violations in South Sudan

"The people of South Sudan have been deliberately starved in different parts of the country for ethnic and political reasons and sexual violence against women and men as a weapon of war has been ongoing. That's according to investigators appointed by the Human Rights Council who said on Thursday that South Sudan's leaders have been oblivious to the suffering of civilians. They've warned of conflict and terrible rights violations in large swathes of territory as a new deadline approaches for the formation of a unity government. After years of conflict has professor Andrew Clapham member of the Commission on Human Rights in South Sudan the fact of destruction of crops or taking away possibility of access to water through the halls. And so on that can constitute the war crime of starvation because your intention is to starve the civilian population the fact that nobody has yet starved to death all that it hasn't reached a critical level in the WFP or follow criteria is confusing. But it's not essential for our work of prosecuting starvation. The point is that there's an intentional use of this method of warfare against the civilian population. In this case by both sides we've documented in the commission's report which will be presented to the Human Rights Council on the night the March both the government and armed groups are said to have pursued starvation policies. In whoa and Unity State's massive corruption which is siphoned off. Millions of dollars from the National Revenue Authority may also amount to economic crimes by senior government officials.

"That exchange with Philip Rucker of The Washington Post brief comments before the full returns were in in in Jerusalem this from the Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu through a translator the meeting with the head of the national. he says the national unity by to UT and the right wing all the parties and we decided unanimously the trio going together to negotiate in order to form a government with me heading it we will actually run the negotiations through one representation of shared one with all those parties. those comments by the Israeli prime minister through a translator the town taxes the director of the center for Middle East policy at the Brookings Institution here in Washington I asked him what the results mean and more importantly what is next for the current Israeli prime minister. bottom line is we have a whole bunch of losers expanded as I can but no clear winner there's one little hands out the on anyone else that's been diminishing out he was hoping for a very different result he was hoping to be able to form another right wing narrow government and that is just not available to him as far as we know what's not clear is in love might be able to form a government opposition leader Benny Gantz not being able to form a government without the support of the ozone party and the only outcome he's liable it is a national unity government would comprise both big parties and yells party and burning out. there is problems because that again parties without not serve wikipedia was prime minister yells indicted war criminal charges and is expected to be soon and so there too we have accordion not of no results he used to be available and is open in something of a constitutional number and if you could explain to those potential criminal charges that prime minister Netanyahu is facing. video is likely to be charge of three different cases including one of them involving bribery one of them is a rather simple case of many years of practice of receiving gifts worth hundreds of thousands of dollars from millionaire friends multi millionaire friends. Julie in return for some small favors but a very routine process of receiving these gifts for champagne and cigars oddly enough the other two kids at once here is one that involves he recorded attempt to coordinate with the publisher of a rival paper I should have paid for that tends to be critical of the canal and the idea of exactly the flip that tone of the paper in return for you can yell curtailing a rival paper that is favorable to him the mysterious case however is one in which allegedly there was actually a deal done not just conversations about it elections and yell gave regulatory favors were met with a lot of money billions of shekels to the owner of an online publications that gave and then return again favorable coverage on that there are two state what is it used to be very close aides in the canal and on that case the mysterious one the Attorney General said he is considering giving up and yell of bribery the last page in this process will be very soon a couple weeks. hello voters will go to the Attorney General and try to present their case the last final hearing and then the Attorney General will make a decision probably late November early December it's quite likely that he will try to dive into the it's rare that was overturned and if that's the case of any would faces indictment early next year. eagerly he could still serve as prime minister you cannot serve as a regular miniature body concerns prime minister but that would depend on the rest of the coalition agreeing to serve under him while he's under criminal charges like this and it leaves blue and white the opposition party is that it would not we're talking with not contacts he is with the Brookings Institution here in Washington is the director of the center for Middle East policy and following the campaign here in the US it seemed as if the prime minister was essentially wrapping himself around president Donald Trump based on the results that fell short. it did although I wonder strong ticket not so much because the company sells for the comp is popular in Israel but because it's in you know tried to portray himself and quite successfully has the most experience and the most worldly of the Israeli leaders of the one is able to deal with trump correctly and with Vladimir Putin in Moscow directly and with no mental ability in India and operates at this level of the highest world diplomacy and there's even some truth to that and so it was quite effective message but in the end it was not effective enough at least not to give an outright victory you're not you're not done yet he may still be around for awhile but he was not able to convince most Israelis in particular because of the criminal cases and the defections from within his own cap and if you could explain what is the role of the Israeli president moving forward. it is very different from the American one is we'll have a parliamentary system and a very multi party system so no party in his old ever received a majority of the votes or the seats in the Israeli parliament the Knesset and a majority is needed to form a government and appoint a prime minister and so throughout his old entry there login coalition of parties with it in the comments that once the election results are certified which will be next week they will be presented to the president they mostly Caramon he'll roll it is not have executive power and then he will summon to him the leaders of the different parties in the command it and that'll determine who has the best chance to form a government and task that member of Knesset with forming a coalition usually it's a very simple process usually the majority of the one hundred and twenty members of connected so sixty one or more recommend one of the members on that person because prime minister different than in the past with any out recently this time it looks like no one will get sixty one and so now the discretion of the president becomes key he now will have to try and figure out how out of this committee he can help them cajole them push them towards forming a coalition we have precedent for that in nineteen eighty four there was a hunk meant that there were no majority and the president at the time push the two main parties it was nothing else we cool deal that was before the canal and the labor party than the major opposition party to form a national unity government they even agreed on both patient in the prime minister's position so the first two years were given for labor Shimon Peres was prime minister between a four eighty six and then we could be production meal he became prime minister eighty six eighty eight this might be the case again we may be looking at rotation again but the question is whether it would be in the canal from the vehicle track it could be him it might also be another leader from the same vehicle party if they will vote against it and you know and push it out what do you think will happen with regard to the current prime minister. I honestly don't know it's a very hard situation because all the build likelihoods are quite low my guess is it will take a long time trans advocate list out but the power of the legal accusations against him and the results of these elections mean that he's not long for the office of prime minister in the end of the day I imagine they'll be a national unity government of some form and the PL eventually will find itself out but if it sounds like on hedging and cat and full of county others because I genuinely do not know he can't even rule out the possibility of another third election if no coalition is formed. well we certainly I would say the combination of the legal trouble and now this resulted very inconclusive the breaking of his charm spell over the Israeli public these have.
