In-or-out Netanyahu, Benny Gantz & one muddled mess: why Israeli politics is more fun than India’s



#CutTheClutter #CTC

With a population less than half of Delhi’s, Israel’s politics is a complex, noisy & divisive. In episode 280 of Cut The Clutter, Shekhar Gupta explains the intricacies of Israel’s bewildering politics where enemies can become friends but remain enemies!

*Correct at 18:18: The decline of left /labour began after 1977, but was completed by the Oslo Accords especially when the second Intifada began in 2000.

US only uses India in hating on China. The same reason US suddenly fell in love with the Kurds ( to fight Turkey) Both India and Kurds have high fertility which is good for American power

Arial sharon was a cold blooded terrorist who conducted sabra and shatilla massacre in Lebanon.
And he thinks sharon was great leader.
Either you are ignorant idiot or you are a sadist Mr gupta.

It is unfortunate that Mr Netanyahu has not learned anything from history.
He fails to see that he has become the major source of instability in the region.
Everyone knows that the Jewish nation have suffered most from fascism.
I wonder how confident he would have been if he did not have the backing of his nuclear arsenal and that of the United States.

No LEFT in Israel . . . so enviably lucky that they don’t have any freeloaders.

No wonder global journalists hate Israelis

If i may add. The left dose not want a government for all the citizens of Israel. The left wants to disqualify and ostracize whole sections of the population. They are possessed with anger and hate. Very unfortunate. New reality.

Dear Gupta ji, why do you never tell as to why other societies are successful in prosecuting even top politicians for corruption and india is not. Incompetence and lack of ability in the indian population is the root cause. Corruption aids this basic incompetence. Indian police officers dont even know basics of investigation.

Another excellent episode. Got the gist of Israeli politics and it is fascinating.
May I request you to make an episode analysing the sudden spurt of India-negative articles (esp re 370) in many Israeli publications, say the JPost.
Here is the link –
https://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Indian-occupied-Kashmir-A-new-American-dilemma-599571
The Pakistanis are relishing it and a multitude of episodes are on air, eulogising the JPost article by Quanta Ahmed.
How influential is this Brit-Pak journalist?
Please throw light on this.
Where has India got it wrong with its relationship with Israel? Or maybe one swallow does not a summer make..

Israel is a brave nation. The word fear is not in its dictionary. A small country population wise but very strong spirit wise. They live and die for their nation.
