one interests you know he cannot expel us because we are not going to accept to be expelled we would stay there we would resist you know such behavior such decision and then you know the international community has to deal with us you know inducted for more on that let's cross over to our correspondent tanya kramer in jerusalem tanya thanks for joining us how seriously are palestinians taking this threat. i think there's a lot of concern you just heard the palestinian official talking there this is especially concern because of the recent u.s. recognition of the golan heights and there's concern that this might have set a precedent actually because also the occupied west bank has been captured in the one nine hundred sixty seven war and palestinian officials have said they're feeling that that might have said to president also to annex this territory now i
think station talk is nothing really new in israeli politics at least some of the smaller parties that are part of the government coalition and the outgoing government right now if next two days here they have always pushed the next station at least parts of the west bank or at least part the as so called area see where most of the settlements are and they have said you know that they have made a lot of pressure netanyahu to annex this territory now the palestinians are very much concerned that all of this together might set you know the atmosphere also seeing that there was a very muted international reaction has been a lot of criticism but it was a muted reaction more or less that you know they might go ahead with their with these plans you know just just days before the general election i have to assume there are some people who might view this as a blatant appeal to a mass non airboats is netanyahu feeling pressure. well this is certainly rallying cry outreach to its most nationalist
base and he wants to tell us voters to go out and vote for likud or reaching out to those voters who are thinking about working for the smaller some of the smaller right being an ultra nationalist parties there are a lot of them wanting as seats in the knesset and some of them might not come over at the elections special so every vote to those parties might be a last vote for netanyahu but he's also under pressure because there has been a tight race between the likud and his party and the newly formed blue and white party by the former army chief and the guns and pulses predict a neck to neck race having said that it is very politics it's all about being able to form a coalition the near post is again predict and we have to take those pas of course with a grain of salt they're not always that accurate but that netanyahu has much more chances to find partners and to form a coalition with and his right wing bloc than
a mystic guns now having said that these are the parties the smaller right thing to nationalist parties that have the pro and excess and agenda and they might actually ask him for a prize to tell him his coalition ask him to follow up on this election that. tony kramer in jerusalem for did you thanks so much for joining us. in france kafka's parable before the law a man waits his whole life in front of a door but fails to gain entry in berlin every weekend young clubbers wait for up to four hours to get inside this building the legendary techno club bergheim but many don't make it when they get to the front of the line this man decides whether they may enter or not. is often described as the world's most famous bouncer a new documentary takes a look at him. night life's most famous store men. love
