10:34 am
keeping benjamin netanyahu out. that's what the 8 parties making up the is really government had in common. but it hasn't been enough to keep a government divided on nearly everything from collapsing, defections and inability to pass legislation and disagreements with eric is really coalition allies over is really a talk from the occupied the ox moss compound. all leading to a dissolution of parliament after only a year in office. so they didn't october has been put forward to hold a general election. the 5th and 3 and a half years. according to nathan, yahoo, the winds have changed, and his hard line, the crude party has already begun courting members of the connect set for his possible return. bernard smith has this reports. for a year, benjamin netanyahu has been working to bring down the coalition that ousted him from power. and he's managed it by blocking the normally automatic renewal of a bill that extends israeli law into the settlements. now netanyahu sees
10:35 am
a pop back to the prime minister's office. luca been lucky, i intend to form a strong national steady government. i think the atmosphere change show i can feel it. i mean, i hear from the people showing up. we now want to will change. we want to return the state of israel to the place to service and i intend to do it together to with my friends. the outgoing 8 party coalition was the most unusual in his railey history, made up of the hard right liberals on palestinian israelis from the arab list. they came together to get rid of netanyahu, but they claim other achieve. i must say that themselves because the government was a pretty good government. was corporation between ops and jewish. the present, the 50, the commission was a very good minister, especially hired man, came a national corporation. and when i think that this government too
10:36 am
was very good for the citizens of his like his whole suggest benjamin netanyahu. quote, when 60 of the 120 seats up for grabs in the classes. the election won't be held until towards the end of october. until then. yeah, le pete is israel's entering products? ah, let's not bring in our guest. joining us from western women's gill hoffman, who is the chief political correspondent at the jerusalem post in warsaw, maryland rapport as writer and editor at new site local call. and also in west russo them, a gideon re hearts who's a senior fellow at israel. democracy institute and chair, political science at here we university of jerusalem. well, come to the program. thanks so much for your time. you'll half when i'll begin with you. so we're waiting in the wings bears benjamin netanyahu is, of course, currently on trial for corruption charges. what are his chances to once again, become prime minister? pretty like right now. he could party is doing the back of the polls.
10:37 am
right now he does not yet in the call have a blocking majority to be able to form a government. all the parties that succeeded in the house to him last time would have to cooperate successfully again in order to prevent them from being able to form a government. the government just fell apart, fell apart because they had too few states. it was too narrow. a government and they couldn't afford to have the rebellion that inevitably came about the downfall . the government wasn't an indictment of the diversity. diversity can succeed and it was very impressed that we had right ring central last week together, very orthodox, and very out there were the docs together. and for the 1st time ever, and it's bob as arabic party and that they can all join forces again. it leads to prevent that from forming a government, if not, to allow them to form another one themselves. all right, stand by for
10:38 am
a 2nd. let's bring in gideon. do you agree with what go has to say, i mean, some polls are showing that nothing has the crude party would would once again be the largest in parliament going forward, but could he put together a coalition? if you look at the polls, it looks like we're going to see the same thing again. no majority for nathan, you know, to form a government majority to clear majority for these really rights, but no majority for the support of nathan you know so well, you know, when you look at these you, you imagine that we might have another government like the one that we have right now, or the previous one with the, you know, 2 weeks rotation or something like this. or we might have another elections, but that's again, it is based on the current balls. and these polls the election results of very
10:39 am
sensitive to the ability of specific parties to pass the electron threshold of 3.25 percent of the vote. ok marrow nathan, yahoo, i just want to focus on him for a 2nd. i mean, he, we've seen him on is really media please. he's come out. he's looking quite bullish on television. in his own words, he's saying that the winds have changed. how popular do you think he remains with right wing is really you said to be very, very popular doctor, today, maybe some people told that after the trial will begin, then he was going to go down and there will be opponents from within that he could target this did not happen and i think he is quite popular whether he will get the 6 to one maturity this question. we have to remember that in the last connections, the poles will go to the right wing,
10:40 am
then accurately sounds that they got the better to pose than he got into actually is out. so it's very open. ok, i think i just want to take you up on something you said a moment ago where you said the coalition was diverse and you believe that diversity can succeed. but you know, a lot of people say that it was the fragility of the co and listen under bennett that, that led to all of this. are you surprised by this turn of events or, or have you expected it? i was surprised when the cohesive coalition started crumpling on the 3rd of april until then it looked like they all have the same goal in mind, which included keeping the thing out of our he was seen as the glue that kept them together. but anyhow, i ran a campaign of scare tactics against the right wing, members of the part of the coalition. and 2 of them cracked you had at the former
10:41 am
college and share a woman who was based tremendous pressure from dallas people, the paid people demonstrate outside are home to hack over children on the way to school. it's got to be absolutely untenable. the job position to bring the guy down . the thing out succeeded. he deserves credit for that. and getting on. i mean, the final straw came when a bill allowing jewish settlers in the occupied west to live under is really jurisdiction. while many palestinians live under the rules of military occupation was defeated in parliament, that is what led to the downfall of the government. what does this tell us about the state of playing israel when this settler law, which normally would enjoy broad support in parliament on, has been renewed over the past couple of decades, failed to pass this time around. this was a show that anthony iowa and he's the he's cam where determinant to go with all of the power to out the government. because
10:42 am
the slow is a classic low for the settlers for the israeli ripe. and they were ready to go against their own interests in order to out this government. yeah, they're on can you way in on this because it is pretty s l founding that that netanyahu, despite his idea logical support for extending is really law to west bank settlers . told his recruit parties to vote against that. i mean, how shocking is that? no, i don't think it's shocking. i think what happened i here i, i personally predicted that the government will fall in june. i was quite sure it will because the government pretended the government to tell them that we can freeze the policy in each for 2 years. 4 years time. now to get no part of the deal. they're not ready to be freeze and situation
10:43 am
deteriorate. and this affected the government, and as regarding the law, we have to understand what happened now is that easily as society is or the society . so i'm able to reach a consensus. and as a part of this all kinds of issues, the track mary went unnoticed like the slow come up and contradiction with aliens. well that's come up. and this is one, a great example of how low that was unnoticed for, for 55 years makes the government fall still there on to put it simply then would it be fair to say that the coalition government ultimately co ops over the palestinian conflict on the occupation i think i see you. i think, i think yes,
10:44 am
i think this is what led to condition to fall specifically was slow, but the whole or the freeze try to freeze the policy an issue and trying to avoid it and just put more and more pressure on the government from all sides from the more right dream side, people in better party and from the last a phone from a bus party. and these 2 dress couldn't leave under these pressure from the right and from the left and the government collapsed. i think there's no other reason for the government to collect than the products being an issue. all right, i see both galen giddy. i want to weigh in on this. so go over to you 1st and get in, and i'll give you a chance to respond as well. i worked at the castle for 24 years and i don't remember the last time the policies are even brought up. they certainly were brought up by any of the people rebelling inside the coalition. not even when the
10:45 am
rom, hardy, the air muslim party started rebelling they, it wasn't really about the palestinians. either this bill is a bill that's not controversial, hasn't some things that are very important, right? doing people and some things that are very important to leslie people and it always passed unanimously, or only the members of voting against it. it was never controversial in any way. this was something that was just exploited because it had a deadline on it. it had to pass by next thursday, the 30th of june. that the opposition said, well, we're not going to vote for it was just an era party. couldn't vote for the coalition, had no majority for it. and the opposition smartly exploited that in order to bring the government down. but it had nothing to do with the palestinians. who will remain irrelevant israeli politics until after they have their election that they have a leader is 86 years old. who doesn't have the support of his people in that i guess for another show. alright, gideon over to you. i mean, this is what
10:46 am
a man all day had to say. who, of course, you know, is the connection member head of the arab joint list. he rode on twitter. it's effort to keep that occupation in place or what brought the government down as much as the government did everything to, to ignore it's you you agree with that or, or what's your response? no, i mean the israeli politics in the last year few years. the last 4 election rounds and all of the, the next one is only about one main issue. the continue ation off. the rule of been benjamin, it's danielle, or the end of his rule. that's all, all of the other things, including very important the other issues are secondary because if the territories are where the issues, we will have a right wing majority stable right when the majority of 7072 seats, something like this. if this was the main issue,
10:47 am
so i think that maybe the palestinian issue is still there or maybe the policy issue was used, but the problem will always be the elephant in the room. well, if not well the policy in an issue is the non issue for the current government because it cannot be an issue it, i think if it was the main issue, so we will have a coalition. we will that the collision of 7072 members of the right thing that support with different young says the idea off of greater israel. so i think that the main issue right now is the rule of natania rather than the palestinian issue. well ok, let's, let's just bring a mare on for just a moment because we were mentioning the era blessed just a moment ago and as a man all the mare on one question that leaves people wandering is what the era
10:48 am
parties will do next. because on the one hand you have the, the rom, which made history as you know, a year ago, the 1st air party to join a ruling coalition. on the other hand, you have the area of joint list. how do you see that going forward? that's a big question. i don't have the answer. i think the question, the real answer is the percentage of participation, if participation among the palestinian citizens will remain at o as in the last election. something like 50 percent of the isn't below that. then that gives a great chance, we're not going to win. if the other hand, the participation rate will go up as it did in september in april 2020, then we will have to drunk least maybe on 15 or both parties together and 15 seats
10:49 am
. and this will change completely the political map. i think what happened in the last year at the moment it's things that just to see patients will remain low because this is going in fight between the palestinian power to the army party on one hand and joined to some of the other. so i think the result will be, may be that the participation will remain low, but i want just a quick remark. if the issue to what was said before, if there was only out or not, and then the government would state, then there's no reason. there was no reason for the government to code. but all the crisis that we have doing this last year, crisis about in the toilet ancient law and, and of course, now all the crisis were connected to the hosting an issue. and all the tax by
10:50 am
direct to ink was on the fact that tow supporters are in the government. so to say that the student issue is non existent. i think it's, it's ignoring the political reality. ok, talk to us about the procedure going forward. the kinessa has already voted preliminary to disperse itself, 110 to 0, from what i understand. it still must pass 3 more times next week. is that correct? what is the procedure? correct? so next monday, next wednesday. at the latest, you know that it will have the 3 more readings. there's a fight over which committee will deal with it. whether it's a committee that's led by a loyalist of bennett or, or someone rebelled against bennett. there are those in lakewood who still want to try to form a government with the courage. they look at the credit, see 72 right wing, members of another 8th from the blue and white party of any get robins despised the
10:51 am
proposed prime minister. yeah. and think maybe they can prevent this election from happening and that speculation will continue until next week when still the overwhelmingly likely scenario is that an election would be initiated. that would be held as early as the 25th of october, as could be next tuesday or after that, or the one after that in november. giddy on boring any surprises. of course, the expectation is that the piece will be the intern prime minister, meaning that he will be most probably meeting with the u. s. president joe biden. when joe biden visits next month, and this is what the state department has said. i don't expect political developments in israel will have implications for what we're seeking to accomplish together with our is really partners. what is israel hoping to get out of this visit? this visit is the, you know, it's of one head of the country with another. so for the state of israel,
10:52 am
this would signify kind of the continuation of the close relationship with the united states in general. but i also suspect that the american current administration would not be so said if, if biden's visit would give some type of find that they support loppy. then he's side of the political mat maron, what is your take on the u. s. president visit to israel next month ahead of whilst the country is in political turmoil. i think i think it was originally. one of the reasons for this visit is to really impose bennett's position and bennett's government. now the government is following. i think us will be
10:53 am
very happy to see this problem in this to help them to, to win the next election. they preparing for bennett bennett was supposed to accept them as an attorney out. i think they will try and help. this is not what they meant to beginning, but i think they will try to help us because we can and strengthens position in the public. gail, what will your la p bring to the table as in term prime minister and, and from what i understand, i mean going for a did the dispersing of the can asset not only holds a series of economic reforms, but also no nominations of senior officials can take place in the country, for example, the next military chief of staff. so how, how does all this affect to israel sort of internally? internally, it puts the government and paralysis again, in which it was through the 1st 4 elections only this time. instead of having this
10:54 am
in presiding over it and having an interest in going to election after election after election, you have left it there and then it's now as an interest analysing him as fast as possible. meanwhile, lupita is moderate, and that is something that the world including present binding would want to work with, but they could easily screw up. let's not forget it. joe biden had a visit here as vice president in which he made a big deal about building in an ultra orthodox neighborhood in jerusalem, surrounded by alter orthodox neighborhoods in jerusalem and acted as if a new settlement had been built deep in the west bank. that would prevent the creation of a palestinian state, him making such a big deal about that. and that of making it a lot harder for the americans to move the peace process forward. after that, if he insists on taking steps to show that they're even a handed and helping the palestinians, you might as well just give a vote of thousands of votes to nathan. yeah, he would give him such
10:55 am
a boost. so bad enough to be very, very careful in what he says and what he does here because everything will be very, very scrutinized because it's happening during an election campaign. and not only that, speaking of the timing giddy, and i'll bring you in the timing of all of this coming. of course, as israel has wrapped up tensions with iran, syria, lebanon. what do you make of that? was this is on the, on the one hand, we have all of these possible conflicts, and actually the conflict is not with lebanon in the blood. that is the strongest force within lebanon, and probably the proxy of iran. but all of these things are on there, on the one hand, on the other hand is well also have some i would some peace
10:56 am
agreements in some better relationship with other countries. so things are going in the middle east all the time. some people are becoming closer to each other. some people are far from each other. i mean, this is a lives, this is the balance of power. the, i mean, who would believe that the, the 50 years ago, israel in iran were the closest friends in the middle east together with turkey. so, i mean, this is something that is part of the balance of power in the world and also in the area. and this is something that israel is, are living with for decades. actually, i think that is, well, is much better off with its relationship with many middle eastern countries. then it was decades before i think many middle eastern countries have come to expect the fact that well is here to stay and then they try to to have relationship and maybe
10:57 am
even try to influence the israeli palestinian conflict in the more diplomacy way. all right on that now we'll have to leave it there. thank you so much for joining us. gail hoffman marana report and get you on raw hot. we appreciate your time. thank you for watching. you can see the program again any time by visiting our website al jazeera dot com for further discussion. go to our facebook page dot facebook dot com, forward slash ha. inside story. when the conversation on twitter handle is a day and type going on myself in the whole team here, and thanks for watching. the patrick coin is an international electronic crypto currency used across the globe. it is the best part is exist on the planet. but few know how it's made its role in the criminal underworld. it's rise to legal tender. it's implications for the global financial system. and the devastating carbon footprint it leaves behind its
