In this segment of By Any Means Necessary, hosts Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman are joined by Asa Winstanley, investigative journalist and Associate editor with The Electronic Intifada, to discuss the swearing-in of new Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, Bennett’s history of bragging about killing Arab people, and why the inclusion of an Arab party in the new coalition seems to have been driven mainly by political expediency.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu appears to be in the final days of his 12-year rule. But how will the new fragile coalition government differ from Netnayahu’s hardline policies? And will it make any difference to the Palestinians?

What do the events of the last month mean for the Palestinian struggle and for international solidarity?
