1:02 am
we begin in israel where exit polls indicate former prime minister benjamin netanyahu is poised to return to power. his alliance, including far i parties looks to have secured a slim majority. netanyahu has yet to make an official statement, but has called the early result. a good start. according to exit polls. benjamin netanyahu is right wing coalition could secure either 61 or 62 out of the classes 120 seats. the official results aren't expected until later this week. tuesdays votes was israel's 5th election in 4 years. for the smiths is that the could had caught is a west jerusalem and bernard. this is shaping up to be national. who's night a. it is name after 60 months in opposition. 60 months reporting has come back and looks like phoebe is back. it's still early to say in the still lots of vote counting going on. we won't actually get the final results until thursday,
1:03 am
but it's looking like benjamin netanyahu may have the largest block in parliament, allowing him to fall, form a coalition, and getting him back into power. what this election seems to turn down or the results turned on is turn out. you won't find an israeli hasn't got an opinion on netanyahu, and already formed opinion. i love him or they low them. so people's votes were already decided. what was missing? were the people who have voted, recall netanyahu had campaign very, very hard to get out the vote from people who hadn't voted for boy. he estimated his party, estimated maybe 853000 votes to be have that. so he was out 2 or 3 different locations a day in the 2 weeks running up to election day. persuading people to vote, that's what this was all about. it was a bit about the economy. there was a little bit of our security, but all you heard was come on vote, not just from netanyahu from other policies to burnett's the early results of this election also piece open the door, the countries fall. right. well,
1:04 am
this is it. this will no surprise because it was well trailed, but the far right jewish empower party, the religious scientists look set to be the 3rd largest part in government, king makers. and they will want government positions their leader to my bank of a he's got a whole conviction from 2007, been citing racial hatred. he wants a job ahead of the security ministry. so benjamin netanyahu has been encouraging this party as well. it has to be said in parliament last year he brought the help, bring them together safe, increase their share of the votes, and they will be more than almost certainly in government with benjamin netanyahu. that very changes the very nature of israel government is critic, spare that with them in power. when met now has back in power, he will with the support of jewish power, change the law and help stop or stole the corruption trials. benjamin netanyahu is
1:05 am
currently facing, and many critics of him see his sole reason, trying to get it back into power is so that he can put these trials behind him, get rid of and get them out of the way. bernard smith in western student, thank you for more this. let's speak to daniel levy. he's the president of the us middle east project and the formats ready negotiator. he joins us live from london . welcome to the program. as we've been saying, 5 elections and 4 years. why does israel appear to keep getting it wrong? well, the, the general school of thought on this is that the problem lies with the person of benjamin netanyahu, such a polarizing figure. now of course with the court case, if not and yahoo would be moved to side, then there would be some kind of a return to normalcy functionality. these frequency of elections, which shit i question that narrative. i think there's something more to it. there's
1:06 am
something of a systemic crisis which has to do with the logic of direction of travel, of the so called jewish democratic state of israel, which is ever more an f. no nationally state which absorbs ever more extreme opinions and which is now been described by the major international human rights organizations as ruling and apartheid reality of palestinians. and i think there is something to when a state that has this kind of democratic hardware has gone. so far and it's extreme software in the headline tonight, one of them, as we just heard, neve is the tremendous success of this co harnessed, ultra nationalist, overtly racist religious zionist party. i think that speaks to something that is much deeper of a crisis in a system than the person of one benjamin netanyahu. and daniel help us to understand what kind of political environment allowed these far right parties to
1:07 am
flourish. well, i think that's the key that you've spoken about, the enabling political environment. i think some people attorney rather say what the hell happened. what's going on here that suddenly got 1415 seats in this exit poll, very likely to be borne out in reality, 3rd largest party in parliament. this is constituted by people who are banned from running just some decades ago when the 1st iteration of a co harnessed body. it's all about the permissive environment. it's all about what happens when you maintain a permanent occupation and dehumanization of another people and the logic of that seeps deep into a society. and just as these railey political system, since the turn of the century has absorbed lieberman, he was the guy who said they should be a loyalty test, deeply racist, he served in every kind of government including this, that paid government. it absorbed and made prime minister natalie bennett,
1:08 am
and he's pro annexation is body. and now it is absorbing this bend via smart rich phenomenon, because that is the logic of the direction of travel, of the supremacist, ethno nationalist line, which we have seen gather ever more momentum. and it's more like seeing steps on the spectrum rather than polar opposites. and one looks at the record of la paid criminalizing palestinian n g o z, a renewing extrajudicial assassinations. you're not overturning the nation state law, which discriminates structurally against the palestinian ab minority inside israel . and you see that's the permissive environment. with of course, a huge helping hand from latin yahoo himself, who bought the leaders of that party together in his home to make sure that they ran on a joint block to maximize this port. of course, we've seen the platform for the far right expand, but what does this mean for arab israelis further antagonize ation?
1:09 am
i guess. well, you know, one of the headlines tonight may, will end up being what has happened in that vote right now. the thing that fascinatingly many is res, looking at, is whether the ballot party oh, which is a, an overtly equality driven nationalist party of palestinian citizens, vizier whether they cross the threshold that might be the only thing that denies not and yahoo, his majority. and you are seeing air time being given to the lead or that party normally ignored that he could become the most important figure. they. they may not cross the threshold at the moment and not. and he is coming out and saying things which to most israeli jewish he is, will be very hard to hear because he's saying we're not going to do in any government. we don't see a difference. they're all pro occupation. there will races there will discriminating that voice is going to be heard more and it's important. but your point stands, which is the likely main headline as it was going into the election is whoever wins
1:10 am
the people who lose in terms of the policies of the government will be the palestinians whether they are inside israel in the occupied territories, or indeed continuing to live as refugees in exile, but there are some interesting dynamics playing out here, which i think um we'll, we'll see and we'll pull on those threads in the coming days and weeks. daniel, leave a great to speak to you as always. thank you. ah, i a ball center or brazil's al going right wing leader has spoken publicly for the 1st time since his election defeat on sunday. and a short speech he didn't appear to concede, but said he would follow the constitution. his left wing opponent lula da silva, claim victory and a closely fort run off vote. both on our supporters have been blocking roads across the country and protest over his loss. police have been firing tig asked to move them from the highways. this is a,
