3:35 pm
kill caesar. so around the question of the military service the quality in front of the military service or full throated looks jews he found the pretexto preventt netanyahu from creating the easy government was sixty four members of knesset already the tense of the eleven.. i in april and now lieberman is even stronger and what's even we've tried to do is to force. guns and that he could. to create a government with i'll continue now and then leave among will try. to take over what's ever left of that he put in thehe right and be thehe next pririme minister of israel so this is the big plan and this is the only issue and the only problem the only reason why he's or doesn't have a government. is not on you know and he's he's criminal cases so he's facing a
3:36 pm
course corruption allegations as active cases again quite a few abadi cancer spoke out to think it's september the tenth in attorneys have used to work for saying that he'd be happy to go for a coalition of the code provided netanyahu wasn't that is i don't see talk of possible which would. which would forbid any politician involved in the corruption investigation i in at yahoo from taking pots acted out so this is something they've been kind of i suppose bring up before this election yes but is as long as the cat is alive. the mice are. quite prudent. once they have the labels feel these with the will send the blood. the nice will get out of the dog the torch the togas. and he will fall. on the step the stairs of the senate. and it happened before. everyone and especially his own come. he's waiting for first blood. and then there will be all over him. they will deliver mon but

those walking the likud will not let someone who left that he could. you know get the get the crown which will be rolling on the ground. so people watching this internationally say for instance in the united states well much is made of trtrump a netanyahu and then close relationship might be. also a surprise to hear what you're saying about the internal machinationons o of israeli politics is this going to change the way isrsrael relates to the u u. s. in futute is it is g going to change the way israelisis. todayy there isa there will be probably a major change if netanyahu will. not be in the picture anymore. nathaniel made a huge bet he put all his money on all these was funny. on the republican party. that is was strategy vis a vis united straight face was always. bi partisan. which means nonpartisan. because without the united states
3:38 pm
israel is in big big trouble. netanyahu abandoned this cautious strategy and he was betting and like shows on our is on one of his supporters. he had quite a success in casinos. so in the political because he knows he was winning because don't drop one. but you know it won't last forever and you cannot just dismiss huff of the american. public and half of the american a political arena. and youou cannot play with the future of the nation. so. lightheartedly so what probably will happen is well will remain a close ally. of the united states probably the relations with donald trump will remain warm but i think that the next prime minister will try. to return to a bi partisan and american alliance rather than a
