naftali bennett – israeli education minister and leader of jewish home (interviewed by stephen sackur) (in the hardtalk series)

“Israel’s seemingly indestructible Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has dodged another political bullet. After the recent flare up of violence in Gaza, his defence minister quit and another key cabinet hawk – Naftali Bennett, said he would go too if he wasn’t given the defence portfolio.
The prime minister called his bluff, and Mr Bennett has decided to stay put after all.

Newshour/Twt/WU: Khan al-Ahmar

BBC bias: the BBC Middle East Editor fails to report that the $25 million cut in US aid to East Jerusalem hospitals has already been fully replaced by the Palestinian Authority (announced a week ago, see https://mondoweiss.net/2018/09/political-jerusalem-hospitals/).
The BBC also inserts its announcement of this American cut into a report on a totally different subject, the proposed Israeli demolition of Khan al-Ahmar.

this evening (monday 17th), 9.51-9.59pm, on bbc world service radio (repeated 10.18-10.25pm, on the world tonight on bbc radio 4) (repeated tuesday 18th, at 10.11am on world update and at 2.36pm on newshour)

naftali bennett – israel’s education minister (presented by stephen sackur) (in the hardtalk series)

“Israel’s prime minister Benyamin Netanyahu took great satisfaction from President Trump’s decision to ignore longstanding international convention and recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. But that diplomatic boost can’t disguise Mr Netanyahu’s vulnerability at home. He’s the target of a long running police anti-corruption investigation and may soon face charges.
