Putin-Biden summit & interview with new Israeli PM Naftali Bennett’s chief strategist (E1024)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to George Birnbaum, former chief of staff to former Israeli PM Netanyahu and chief strategist and pollster for new Israeli PM Naftali Bennett. He discusses the summit between US President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s push for NATO membership, whether Naftali Bennett assuming the executive office in Israel will cause any real shift considering his opposition to a two-state solution and previous bragging about killing Arabs, the turn back to armed struggle for the Palestinian resistance and much more!

Finally, we speak to Clare Daly MEP. She discusses the Julian Assange case and how it shows the hypocrisy of the West in calling out Russia on human rights abuses and Alexey Navalny’s arrest, the hawkish framing of the Putin-Biden summit by the Biden administration, the West’s tensions with China and why the policy is pushing the EU closer to the US, the myth of the Chinese threat, Ireland’s recent actions against Israel’s occupation of Palestine, the painting of Russia and China as imminent threats and much more!

We contacted the European Parliament about the allegations in this show and they directed us to this article.
