Netanyahu the hostage, China on Belarus nukes

Attempting to cool protests, Benjamin Netanyahu makes himself a hostage of far-right elements in his own government. The Israeli prime minister is increasingly beholden to those who have very little in common with many of their fellow citizens.

China sidesteps Putin's Belarussian nuclear move, proving its false red line. Beijing likes to pretend it influences Putin against escalation, but its response here proves otherwise.
