President Itzhak Herzog with the BBC’s Lyse Doucet, October 31, 2023.

Four minutes and change were cut on Tuesday by the BBC from its chief international correspondent Lyse Doucet’s interview with Israeli President Yitzhak Herzog. They happened to include Herzog’s most eloquent and uncompromising statements on the realities of Israel’s war against Nazi Arabs and what the late Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill would have done to them.

I apologize for the low volume, that’s the cut I got, that’s the cut I embedded.


It should be noted that the president’s father, President Haim Herzog, was the trusted voice of the IDF in the three anxious weeks before the 1967 six-day war, reassuring the frightened civilians even as their leaders appeared to be losing their grip.
