"algeria" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Foreign Desk

"Colonial occupations and broadly similar enterprises are very often framed as a simple binary contest between the invading force usually portrayed as malign rapacious and ruthless and the local resistance traditionally depicted as noble heroic and selfless. It is usually rather more complicated. It is next to impossible for any occupier. However militarily mighty to impose themselves upon a completely and resolutely uncooperative territory. They require an amount of local assistance and they usually find it. This reliably recurring factor is very often written out of popular history. Few indians would boast of dissent from a soldier in the east. India company's army the viet cong lionized in a way that the vn on not a native american may well prefer to believe that their ancestors fought against custer at little bighorn rather than scouted for him and everybody in france would rather think that their grandparents were in the resistance. Nobody enjoys the odium gathers about the collaborator. Not least because not. Everybody deserves it to cite one example from extremely recent memory. It would require an absurd moral dogmatism to insist that the many thousands of afghans who fought alongside the united states and its allies against the repressive fanatics of the taliban will on the wrong side. President emmanuel macron of france has this week been soliciting forgiveness of the hockey's the algerians who took francis side during algeria's war of independence. This is not one of those recently. Fashionable historical apologies whereby country expresses regret for misdeeds. long past. This is well within living memory. Branch was at peace for the first time since nineteen thirty nine. As far as charles de gaulle's government brought the war to an end in algeria. The conflict lasted approximately from nine hundred. Fifty four to nineteen sixty two and some hockey's are still with us. Hundreds of thousands of hockey's fought to keep algeria french and lost after the algerian war. France perhaps in haste to put the unpleasantness behind it substantially abandoned the hockey's only forty. Two thousand were permitted to relocate to france and they were confined for years to prison camps and restricted to menial labor. Many of hockey's left in. Algeria was subject to extremely rough justice. Nobody knows the number tortured and or arbitrarily executed but nobody doubts that it runs into many thousands. Their descendants remained subject to discrimination in france and in algeria. We let humiliated. They banned my hands and feet the algerian war walls first and foremost a trauma for algeria. But it was no small change for france which may be why. France has since struggled to acknowledge the realities and the legacy of the conflict. It would be tempting to describe algeria as francis vietnam. Were not for the fact. That vietnam had by then already been francis vietnam at the time. The algerian war caused considerable political turmoil. In one thousand nine hundred fifty eight indeed. It led to the collapse of francis fourth republic and fears in some quarters of a french civil war. Disgruntled french army officers staged a coup d'etat. In algeria landed paratroopers on corsica and prepared to march on paris. An outcome forestalled by the return to power of world. War two leaders shells to gold in accordance with the plotters wishes in the minds of millions. Years the only possible. Save it of his country. Millions of others represents the thin end of the wedge job military dictatorship and fascism in nineteen sixty one. Dozens of people were killed in paris when police responded brutally to protesters demonstrating in favor of algeria's national liberation front many drowned after being savagely beaten and thrown into the sane president macron is not the first occupant of his office to have made efforts towards reconciliation. With the hockey's president. Jack sherack declared a day. September twenty fifth in their honor president. Nicolas sarkozy and francois are all on both acknowledged francis shabby treatment of its allies on the wall the harkless have the right to disrespect and is recognition and have the right to be told that at the time the authorities of the french republic didn't behave well towards those they should have protected. I don't want to sue key so a petition. President macron has gone further kilos of earlier this week he addressed an audience of three hundred surviving hockey's and their families at the palace. He asked for their forgiveness and promised laws to recognize they contribution and francis responsibility to honor. It will be on as for microns reasons for addressing this matter. It's always possible. It sometimes is in politics. That he simply believes it. The right thing to do it would fit the pattern of macron's previous apologetic and conciliatory gestures and statements regarding france's nuclear testing in the south pacific. Up until the mid nineteen ninety s francis about the looming genocide in rwanda in one thousand nine hundred eighty four and indeed french war crimes in algeria last. Gm macron commissioned the historian benjamin stora to report on francis handling of its colonial legacy but macron will also be aware that the hockey's as a demographic tend politically towards the hardcore nationalist perhaps ironically given how the nation has treated them but there it is and macron knows that his most prominent opponent in next year's presidential election is likely to be marine le pen a hard-core.

"So in other words, in the thirties and forties, if you were in the Hollywood 10 if you were Algeria, this if you were Earl Browder later on Gus Hall, the Rosenbergs in the 19 fifties, you swore loyalty oath to Stalin's Soviet Union. And what we have today is they're not doing that. I mean, today's American Marxists, which is why I think with this this brilliant title of your book, I think you may have failed us even more than then you realized, uh, this is a unique American. Brand of Marxism. It's American Born. It's American fashioned. You know, the strain or strains of it is something that history here to four has people have never seen before. So this is really unique. And you say in your book, you say there's been an Americanized adaptation of Marxism, and I think this place is put it exactly right, which takes marks Marx's core precepts and contextualized them. To our American system, And here's really the dangerous part. And this is what a lot of people don't get. So so they contextualized them to the American system like you say, mark in order to effectively overthrow the system. And and that actually is something that's not new. So these people in the thirties and forties they would hide behind the Fifth Amendment. They would They formed the front groups with names like the Committee on the First Amendment. And you would just pull your hair out. Congress would write like First Amendment. Fifth of men that the first thing you got here do is throw out the U. S Constitution. What are you talking about? Exactly? And a lot of these guys and gals today. Yeah, You know, it's the same thing so they're taking the Marxist framework. And they're using it in a way that seems in at least in their rendering of it, right. You know, American about rights and civil liberties and so forth, But it's in order to undermine the existing system. And, yes, that's American Marxism today.

The Hitler Haggadah with Jonnie Schnytzer

"Joined today by johnny schnitzer to talk about the hitler. Haga a nineteen forty-three judeo arabic haggadah. Which tells the story of the holocaust the second world war and the allied landing in north africa through the passover seder. Johnny schnitzer is a phd candidate at bar. Ilan university with a focus on medieval kabbalah. His dissertation is focused on the fourteenth century. Kabul list rabbi. Joseph ben shallow ashkenazi and johnny is also preparing a critical edition of ashkenazis. Commentary on sefer itsy raw. Johnny also edited an english edition of the etc. Which we're going to be talking about today. The hitler etc is such a fascinating text in many ways even just the title is jarring. And you might think how can you use. Hitler's name in the title of this traditional jewish text and it draws you in to a tremendous piece of moroccan jewish history that reworked the traditional passover story to tell us about the experience of north african jews in the holocaust. I hope you enjoyed our conversation. Where we're going to dive into this text and think about how it can broaden our understanding of the holocaust to include the middle east and north africa in that story and also where we think through the important relationship between jewish roots and holidays with history and historical memory. Thanks for tuning in high johnny. Welcome to the podcast. Thanks so much for joining us to talk about your book that you added. Thank you for inviting me. Lovely to be here. Absolute think this is such a fascinating text. Can you maybe tell us a little bit about it in other words like what is it that makes this different from all other hug adults. I think there are sort of two bombs that this text drops upon any re- debt guest that sort of feast there is on the hit laga and the first one of course is the title and this is what got me interested in this from the outset and that is this sort of sporadic this who has the chutzpah to do this at taking a jewish texts calling it the hit laga. That's the sort of bomb number one. Because you're not even sure what this is about. Who wrote this. But you know one thing you know that the author who is anonymous and we'll touch upon them in a moment takes to keywords. That every juneau's today every jew does not need to google almost haggadah writer passover passover eve where we read the haggadah we all come and we eat together and he takes haggadah and he connects to the other. Keyword that we all know about for a very separate horrific connotation. That's hitler and he puts it together. The first bomb is who has the chutzpah to perpetrate a text. And give it the title. Hit laga taking one of the most sacred texts and connecting it to one of the biggest mom's area if you like in jewish history and then you open the text and you realize that author has done something absolutely fascinating he is done with. The sages have asked us to do generation after generation and that is to see ourselves as if we left egypt red. It's to reenact. Redemptions to reenact. God saving the jewish people taking us out. And what does he do. He takes the structure of the storytelling bit of the haggadah. Right on passover. Eve we have the ceremony we have the blessings and then we reached the mortgage section the mugged section to section where we meant to mcgee. We meant to tell the story. That's what is about right. We tell story we tell the story of redemption. This also explains why passovers become right. This trend of everyone bringing own hug dot. Everyone bringing their own stories. Because it's all about bringing together different pieces of the puzzle. Creating this beautifully rich mosaic. So he takes the traditional structure of the haggadah which tells us about how we were taken out of egypt and it tells us about these different characters. Rabbinic figures leaving two thousand years ago. The told us to do this and told us to do that. And he takes out the content and fills it with a new content whereby he tells the story of the holocaust of world war two of the allied victory of the ex pows over nazi germany. And hitler and mussolini's italy he tells us the story of his generation rights yossi who has something to tell us in the traditional said. There's something about how. How would you meant to do something. All of a sudden becomes the speech of the dictator iosif stalin when we told them the haggadah that i god and not an angel. Not anyone else is going to take you. The jewish people out of egypt suddenly becomes. I shall the goal. I not level not the right none of none of the other vichy high commanding general's. I shall the goal which already tells us right. This is what's fascinating in the hitler etc and this is the second bomb if the first bomb is the title. We still don't know what it's about. The second bomb is when you discover that this was written by an anonymous jew living in robots morocco probably towards the end of nineteen forty-three as a result possibly inspired by operation torch. The allied operation led by the us on the shores of casablanca and algiers. And everything changes all of a sudden this jew living in morocco. Who's lived under a regime whether anti jewish laws jews around him have lost their jobs. Jews around you can't get a jewish education you become by night a second-grade citizen and so out author. It almost seems as if he's taking a text which it's time to write it when we don't yet know the ending. He doesn't yet know about the horrific six million who are being murdered. He doesn't know about concentration camps in poland. But he knows he wants to do something horrific any also is living in a time where his life has changed for some years and as a result of the allied victory he suddenly possibly is inspired and sees. I get the exodus. The story i meant to be telling i meant to take the passover haggadah until the story that i see and that's how the allies beat the excess power. And how in fact you know retelling the story of exodus mine new-fangled version. I think that the text itself is amazing in the ways in which it on. The one hand utilizes the story of passover very explicitly very specifically in when he talks. About how hitler. Enslaved the jews but also like you mentioned the way in which some of the characteristic aspects of the traditional aspects are transfigured and transformed new. Whether we're talking about the parable of the four sons the for children or the different rabbis plagues. What are some of the really interesting things that are happening in this text that really are utilizing the passover story itself and also the the characteristic aspects of the passover seder that people who read attritional seder would be familiar with but they give it new meaning in this context. If we take right this this idea of the four sons four daughters any jewish figure that we look at it and we want to understand. What is it the sort of a heart of their teachings you know. One of the tricks is to see if they wrote a commentary on the haggadah. What do they do with these. Four boys of for doors. What do they symbolize. And in the case of the hit da it takes us back in time to a sort of moroccan viewpoint of the the north african campaign. And so who is the wise son now. You know it's going to be an allied power. But you're not sure that england or is it america and you'll told the the wise son is england right. The royal air force acts cleverly. He's clearly impressed he he is probably the razzie stance radio. He knows about the bombings. He knows about montgomery and then we move onto the russia. The russia we know can only be one person. That's clearly hitler. Hitler the evil one. He knows that he's a know he. He's torturing the jewish people and yet it's interesting that if you read through the at that we're not quite sure what's going on in europe right off a thinks that there is a concentration camp in berlin so we're not yet show what's going on in the world and our author doesn't yet. Nobody knows that he clearly is evil that he's plotting against the jews there wearing yellow badges which also is interesting. Because we're not sure. If he's referring to the yellow badges of jews in europe or the yellow badges of jews in certain places in north africa and then who is the tam. The time is interesting. Because tom can both mean in hebrew complete simpleton the thomas america and then shane no. You're dillashaw and who doesn't know how to ask questions. The classic version says the fourth son is the son who doesn't know how to ask questions. The newfangled version is and mussalini. Who isn't with the avowed woods and this is very interesting because when i was speaking to holocaust survivors. Oh you know this. Sort of all degeneration and i spoke to people from algeria from tunisia morocco across the board there was a nickname from cellini mar. He was the donkey he was the s. This resonates with this passage whims lead author decides to change it. And say it's not. He doesn't ask question it's that we don't even wanna talk about

"World of augustine encircled the mediterranean sea spain and portugal. To the west france switzerland and the british isles to the north greece turkey israel to the north and to the east. Of course italy extending right into the sea the boot poised to kick a soccer ball also known as sicily and stretching all along the south egypt in the coast of africa. Agusan is from africa. Now that's the modern designation as are all of those country names. I just listed for you and the three hundred and four hundred. This was all rome. All of these peoples were roman or were to be considered roman and all of these places were part of the far flung roman empire augusta was born specifically in what was called new media the roman province of namibia. It is modern day algeria. His hometown was aghast. It was originally a village of nomadic. Berbers and back in the two hundred and one hundred species does the punic. Wars rome took control of this vast area as guston was born. Rome reached its zenith as augusta and lived roman declined and as guston died. Rome fell well. The gas was two thousand feet above sea level. It was surrounded by mountains that were another thousand feet or so and it was a very fertile plain. In fact the most fertile land in north africa it was a great place to settle and farm. Corn olives were mostly harvested and had a great economy one. A story noted how it became a retirement destination spot for roman soldiers. Did you ever wonder where the lions and bears and tigers in the roman amphitheatres came from. Will they were caught in the mountains and in the plains around agustin's hometown of the gas one hundred and seventy miles away to the east was the massive city of carthage. It was bustling with people and trade. It was second city only to rome and sixty miles or so to the northwest hippo regis. That city would come to play a significant role in the life of augustine. Near the end. Agustin's father was patricia. S a roman pagan. His mother was monica and devout and sometimes mystical christian much much more on her later as our book unfolds. Augustine had siblings. But we know very little about them he had at least one brother navigate. Send at least one sister and he likely had more brothers and sisters. But we just don't know that much about them at all. He was born on november thirteen. Three fifty four. This was a full generation of post. Constantine rome one. After constantine's conversion did you see the air quotes there. i put around network. that's important. This was the christian era at the end of the roman empire of course alongside of christianity. Plato's philosophy and the schools that followed him ruled the roost. That's important. It was a time of doctrinal advance. Augusta lived right in between the nineteen creed three twenty five and the cow sedonia creed of 451 that's important. He also lived during the time of heresies. They were springing up all over the place. Will that too is important if you were to ask a young augusta playing in the streets of the gassed. What do you want to do when you grow up.

"The president of Turkey. President Erdogan has decided to chime in today. He earlier on earlier today, he said, Ah, I'm sorry. France earlier today re called It's Ambassador to Turkey for consultations. That doesn't mean they're shutting down the embassy. They that's what you do You bring them back to Paris for consultations after unacceptable comments by Turkish President Erdogan questioning the mental health of French president Emmanuel Macron because of his attitude towards Muslims. Earlier this month. Mr Macron pledged to fight Islamist separatism, which he said was threatening to take control and some Muslim communities around France, drawing a sharp rebuke from the Turkish leader. This is, by the way, there's a lot of myths about the so called no go zones in London. There are flat out no go zones in Paris. You know, the French are on their fifth generation. Of from from the high tide of their empire of Muslim immigration. From Tunisia, Algeria. Send ago Morocco, etcetera, Syria, Lebanon. And they never really assimilated the the mainland. Metropolitan French didn't want them to assimilate. Nor did they want to assimilate just that The French didn't convert them to Christianity at the sword they just tolerated. Muslim immigrants from their empire because that was what the French the French attitude about their empire was. Well. Unlike the British Empire, you you can move freely all about our empire. Oh, it's all France now. And that's why France fought to the last Legionnaire where her for Algeria before Algerian independence. Independence. But anyway there are neighborhoods in the north east of Paris. The 18th arrondissement where French is not spoken. Never mind. You know English should visit.

Must not allow ourselves to commit further violations she said in a statement, the development follows numerous rapes reported around the world in recent weeks including in Algeria, Bangladesh India, Morocco Nigeria Pakistan, and Tunisia people have rightly been outraged and are demanding justice for the victims and measures to prevent such assaults from happening. Again, Miss Bachelorette noted in an appeal for greater assistance for victims prompt criminal investigations and prosecutions. I share the outrage and standing solidarity with the survivors and with those demanding justice but I'm concerned. Are also calls and some places loss already being adopted, bringing cruel and inhuman punishments and the death penalty for perpetrators they main argument being made for the death penalty is for it to deter rape. But in fact, there's no evidence that the death penalty deters crime more than other forms of punishment the death penalty or other measures such as surgical sterilization of perpetrators will not resolve the barriers victims of sexual violence face in accessing justice misbash let said

Same conclusion was reached by the special to re United Nations. To me and Ma. I again the special adviser under provincial of genocide to the secretary you know the the United Nations also similar conclusion. Now living all of those conclusive reports site. I have visited the refugee tweet. Come at Cox's Bazar Myself on interacted with many of the refugees. Who recounted their stories to me now? I have had previous experience into convince alive in victims of genocide in particularly in nineteen ninety four Rwandan genocide. I have spent almost almost a decade and a half as a prosecutor International Taibbi for wonder and when I heard the stories been recounted by witnesses I know Tuesday Tuesday where striking similarities not only in the fact that He's a process of historical dehumanization. That has accord in and me and my against your hanger. But also the fact that Myanmar authorities had engaged in a systematic and Organiz Operations Swedish talented winger targeted women. Terrible Honda's sexual. Violence crimes have been documented targeted children. in in some instances been burnt a life in their homes or places of worship Men Been Arrested on armed defenseless men. Being arrested wasted rounded up and executed. I mean these are all indications that demand maturities want indeed to destroy doing doing ethnic group in Myanmar. And these are the reasons why we believe that. There is compelling evidence to conclude a genocide hot taking place and is ongoing in Cox's Bazar. Of course is that very large refugee camp Bangaladeshi that a lot of Hindus have fled to what what took you to Cox's Bazar in the first place. What piqued your interest in the whole situation? A Memoir I was in New York on another official mission for the government of Gambia with the Minister of Foreign Affairs. Detained Buck in mid eighteen. Anada last minute. The foreign affairs minister had to cancel His attendance and I D V Council of Foreign Ministers Meeting in Bangladesh. Dhaka and so he requested that I attend on his behalf.

Says he said you saw parallels between the accounts that you heard from Asia in Cox's Bazar What they experience in Myanmar and the tragedy of nineteen ninety? Four in Rwanda. How would you compare the international community's community's response to me and my versus Rwanda well? I saw striking similarities in many different ways. But what is most most disheartening is that the international community failed to under in nineteen ninety four when we did not intervene to stop the genocide of almost chameleon people and then twenty five years after the tragedy. Here we are again not doing anything to stop another ongoing genocide underside in Myanmar. I think the treatment of the winger in Myanmar illustrates the failure of the international community due intervene. And Stop the genocide. So back in your country Mr Tumba do the Gambia. There's also been a reckoning pass abuses. There is a truth and reconciliation in reparations nations commission in the gamma that's investigating human rights abuses. That happened under the twenty year rule of President yet Jami does it undermine the Gambia's credibility ability and international human rights. Or does it prepare you to deal with it well. Our experiences in the Gambia is what has actually informed the position of the government of the Gambia to speak out against the oppression of autos wherever it of course on the wall. We believe that that had spoken out against the abuses the terrible crimes and human rights violations that were occurring into Gambia. You in the twenty two year period. The former president Jimmy. We have would not have been under his regime for twenty two years the fact that no one no one helped us. no-one put pressure on President Jaime to stop his atrocities. That has led us to go through a very difficult to decade period Hewitt. We don't want others to feel our pain or are fit. We know how it feels like to be unable to tell your story to the wall to be unable able to share your pin with others in the hope that they will help. We know what it feels like to be helpless. We have lived through it for over two decades and we don't want artists to suffer the same fit. What do you think it tells us that? A small country like the Gambia can have an important voice and can take the lead in addressing serious human rights violations. Well why not Gambia.

Equally and the Gambia as a responsible member of the international community has its own obligations under the Genocide Convention unbased unbased stepping up and taking on me and my in this case the Gambia is demonstrating quite clearly that you have to have military power or economic power to stand for justice to Stan for what is right.

"It's different. This time is that nickel neo is now formerly facing criminal charges of bribery and fraud and even though his party is still sticking by him. There is the the beginnings things of an insurrection within the ranks of Nicole. He's going to have to face in two weeks. A leadership challenge which is expected to win but the fact that the challenges even taking replaces signs of weakening support. And the fact that he's now facing indictments may also change his legal status when it comes to forming a new government assuming even has the votes to do so three months from now wants. The next election is held. Netanyahu is the longest serving Israeli prime minister at this point. What is going on within Likud? His party are they still fully behind him. Well it could as a party which was always been very loyal to its leaders Nicholas. Various evolutions evolutions is existed now for ninety seven years in that time. It's only had five lead. That's quite a job security and Likud members I like to say that it's not in our DNA to depose leaders. There isn't much appetite for forcing. That's in the island out in the party. The other is behind the scenes a lot of table to be quite happy. If Netanyahu himselves somehow reaches the conclusion that he that he won't be able to form another government and resigns but Netanyahu is as clinging onto power staying in office also because he believes it will help him when he finally has to go to Col- it's given a bargaining chip for perhaps for a plea bargain Dan. He thinks perhaps the judges will go easy on him being a prime minister so if all those reasons he is not going to he's he's not GonNa go softly into that gentle nights nights. Netanyahu of course has his legal problems on his hands. How do you see that affecting his bid to hold onto office well? The Israeli any public is is divided. Almost down the middle and I think it's similar to the way a lot of Americans from public and the Democrat sides are looking at impeachment. People who support potently out of very suspicious very skeptical about the charges against aluminum except what he's saying that he's the victim of a witch-hunt on the side. Those politically opposed into neo believes the charges On Shell I'm just curious of nobody won the election. How come Netanyahu is still prime minister? What because it's a parliamentary autumn? Entry System you need a parliament to appoint a new prime minister until that happens. The serving prime minister remains in office so failed twice ice but since none of his opponents have succeeded that he's still in office. So much political jockeying going on I mean how is the government functioning are Israeli. Seeing any problems as a result assaulted the steelers. I mean one thing that Israelis can feel good about is that the government the civil service that security establishment and every other non-elected part of Israeli executive. Seems to be quite stable. I mean even the fact that the legal system has invited the prime minister's very impressive so the government seems to have of continuity and stability but obviously there are things that you do need a functioning from elected government cabinets to take decisions on long term plans of budget and so on and that is starting having affect millions funding various programs and so on but in general these Israelis are feeling the they lack of a of a functioning government because service is still functioning quite well on Shell feffer biographer of Benjamin Netanyahu. Thank you for your time today if I welcome. The Pentagon has suspended training programs for all Saudi military students here in the United States. That's roughly nine hundred Saudis out of a total about fifty two hundred the foreign military trainees across the country. The clampdown comes in the wake of last week's shooting at a naval airbase in Pensacola Florida. A trainee from the Saudi Royal L.. Airforce killed three American sailors and wounded eight other people. Now there's an indefinite halt for Saudi military students on all flight instruction firing firing range training and other operations outside the classroom but the deadly attack is also raised questions about the purpose of these programs. These types of programs exchanges are very very important to our national security. That's Defense Secretary Mark Asper earlier. This week. He told Fox News at the Pentagon would review vetting procedures for foreigners on American military leterrier basis. But he said the US would continue the training programs and the ability to bring foreign students here to train with us to understand. American culture is very important to us building those those long term relationships that keep a safer Fahahd Naza is a spokesperson for the Embassy of Saudi Arabia. He's been following events from Washington. You know some of our critics have argued that this terrible incident should lead to broader debate about Saudi US relations. So I would argue that. The security and military cooperation between our two nations has actually saved the lives of thousands of people in the United States and the Kingdom and elsewhere. I'll give you two quick examples in one thousand nine hundred one American taken and US soldiers expelled. Saddam Hussein's invading army from Kuwait more recently. Saudi Arabia flew the second highest number of sorties and the US military coalition against the terrorist group that calls itself Islamic state or are you saying Saudi Arabia's flown more sorties than the United Kingdom in the fight against Isis. Well I won't argue about the actual numbers that we flew a lot of missions and not not only that but I would argue that. Saudi Arabia actually considers itself at the forefront of international community's effort to counter terrorist terrorist groups for many years. The shooter I involved in this incident who died. Muhammad al-Shamrani was a second lieutenant in the Royal Saudi Air Force A we. We also learned that on social media. Hit left a trail of declarations of hate for Americans because of their so called crimes against Muslims. Why did his commander sent him to the US if he had had that kind of history right so as I mentioned earlier the Kingdom is fully cooperated with the US investigation? Investigators sorry who are trying to determine the motivations of the assailant. I do not want to speak about the assailant. Or the details of the investigations. At this point we simply don't have all the answers going forward. The kingdom will take all necessary measures to reduce the likelihood of something like this happening again in the future fair enough but what are the criteria for the military training program. What is the selection process? It is it is a obviously. It's a strict selection process. And the fact that you know you have to take my word for it. The Pentagon issued a statement two days ago saying that twenty thousand. Saudis Saudis have undergone this kind of military training over decades with no incident. Will Saudi Arabia be investigating this incident independently. We are certainly looking into it back home the Saudi pilots who trained in the US We'll fly missions in the war in Yemen. It's a war that many members of the US Congress strongly finally oppose as you know. So how would you argue to Congress which will certainly be looking at for the continuation of this training program and the role of these pilots play in Yemen. The the warned Yemen was not a war of choice. It was a war of necessity for us. We are doing all we can to support internationally recognized legitimate government of Yemen. I'm an to regain control of country. We are supportive of peaceful and political resolution. But this war began when the iranian-backed Rainier back truth you rebels took up arms against the internationally recognized government of Yemen and will end when they put those weapons down and go back to the negotiating table will will. These pilots play a role in Yemen. I mean the pilots that undergo training will obviously take part in any mission that Saudi Arabia feels is necessary to ensure our national security interests. Final question As this tragedy unfolded. Some officials quickly pushed the point of Saudi Arabia. So you need to give the victims. Money and president trump downplayed any need for accountability on behalf of Saudi Arabia. What is Saudi accountability in this case? Well as I sat at the outset. We extended our condolences to their families and the victims. We extended condolences to President Trump and American the leaders in Congress. We have condemned this senseless act of violence in the strongest terms possible. We are cooperating fully with the US investigators to try. Try to get to the motivations of the assailant we will take whatever. Measures are necessary to make sure that something like this doesn't happen again in the future.

"Marco Werman you're with the world we're a CO production of the BBC World Service W. G. B. Boston NPR X.. Antisemitism it might be something that most Americans agree is bad left right center and that we should do something about it but the agreement seems to end there because as soon as he started asking people what is antisemitism who is guilty of it and what to do about it and that's when you run into disagreements. This became clear after President Trump signed his latest executive order. The world's Rupa Shenoy has more. The minority Hanukkah came early at the White House yesterday. As president. Trump recounted counted what he's done for the Jewish people and said he was adding to that legacy by signing a powerful executive order. This action makes clear the title. Six of the Civil Rights Act which prohibits the federal funding of universities and other institutions that engage in discrimination applies to institutions that traffic in anti Semitic. Hey noted that Congress and the previous administration gration had tried to do something similar but those efforts stalled but this year. There's no roadblock because I'm doing it myself too much. Easier and trump made the the intent of his order clear. This is our message to universities. If you want to accept the tremendous amount of federal dollars that you get every a year you must reject anti Semitism throws the order recommends that universities define anti-semitism with this specific language as quote a certain perception of Jews. which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews including quote rhetorical? And physical. Physical manifestations of anti-semitism. Ken Stern helped craft that definition originally for the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance stearns is now director of the Center for the study of hate never intended to something to police speech on campus. Because he says there's no similar definition Asian of racism for example answer and says the Department of Education has made clear that title six already covers to students. Jewish are being targeted targeted regardless. If they're pro Israel or anti Israel simply because they're Jewish for harassment. That's something that's actionable and a concern. But the use use of this definition is part of a long standing pattern going back to two thousand ten to try to curtail political speech about as all others have come to the same conclusion about trump's executive order Laura Friedman is president of the foundation for Middle East. Peace what it says is when it comes to criticizing Israel Jews equal Israel. Israel equals Jews if you are on campus a student or a speaker and you only talk about Israel and you're criticizing Israel Israel you are by definition anti Semitic I mean under the definition offered here the Palestinian historic and lived narrative becomes. He comes antisemitism. She says the orders goal is to send a message to university administrators and organizers. We are watching you and we will make with your lives. Miserable cost you time cost. You Rep They'll be reputational costs all of that. You could lose your federal funding if you dare cross the line. So don't even go near the line. Friedman says trump's executive order is aimed at campus protests across the country that trump sees as connected to a larger worldwide movement to boycott Israel Israel called. BBS That's short for boycott divestment and sanctions ADAS president. I want to be very clear. My administration vigorously grizzly condemns the BBS campaign against Israel. This is trump earlier this week at the Israeli American Councils National Summit in Florida but sadly B D s has also made disturbing headway on American college campuses. You know that don't you here with us. Today is a delicate hob Arista graduate of New York University who courageously stood for Israel in the face of hostility and bigotry. That they Adela LACOB got on stage and told the audience she was suing. And why you because it failed to protect Jewish students from harassment. Now she tells me she feels validated by the presidential order by signing order just expanded definition of protected groups and it includes Jewish students explicitly. And I think that that tells Jewish students everywhere that what they're going going through isn't normal. It's not okay and it just clarifies that they can stand up and Co Hab pushes back against the argument that the executive order will stifle free speech. I think that protest can very much not anti-semitic. I criticize his role openly. Because I thought but there's a difference between criticizing winging Israel and Israeli policy and Israeli administration and criticizing Israel's right to exist because when you say that your anti-zionist you're saying that you're against Israel's right right take this which is destroying Israel and creating a hostile environment for Jewish students. She says for their part many campus activists for Palestinian rights. Say they're not backing down. Nick Galloway is a graduate student at the University of Maryland who's participated in demonstrations for years. They can't stop us from getting together and fighting fighting for justice and fighting for Vdi. He says trump's executive order might intimidate some Palestinian or Muslim students on campus from protesting. The Galloway adds that that it also might invite a backlash. That's going to strengthen their resolve. A student organizers unifies us but the divisions over Israel Zionism Palestinian rights and free speech aren't going away anytime soon. Trump's executive order will have to play out on college campuses and likely courtrooms across the country for the world. I'm Rupa Shenoy. Elections are the ultimate expression of a healthy democratic system right. Well if that's the case Israelis might be feeling election indigestion. Today they're parliament. The Knesset voted last night to dissolve itself. Voters will now head to the ballot box yet again in March for or another national election the third in less than twelve months but neither of the top party leaders not the prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu nor his rival former army chief Benny Ganz was able to form a governing coalition so it is a do over election of the do over election from a few months ago on Shell. FEFFER is the author of BB Turbulent Life Hyphen Times of Benjamin Netanyahu. He joins us now from London where he's covering the UK election for the Israeli newspaper higher rates. So you've obviously got elections on the brain on Shell L. But let's focus on Israel Elect number three is coming. What's different this time? Well Well.

"I think Nigel Farraj who's one of the big leave guys had put up and was pushing that showed dislike horde of largely Brown migrants. People of darker skin color on this long road coming in. It was the very clear propaganda. They were pushing just two small example of what a big shift that is. I remember during the early days of discussions about immigration, you like some people I knew from Spain were worried about the stereotype was the polish plumber is coming right. The polish plumber is going to come from the east and move westward. And that was going to take your job effectively that was the narrative so for the narratives to change from the polish plumber to. The brown. People are coming is. It was it was stark not only for for me to watch. But it was very clearly a shift in the narrative of the immigration debate in Europe in Britain. Specifically right anti-immigrant sentiment has been really powerful for a long time. You know, there's a famous speech from several decades ago by a British MP name inept Powell called the rivers of blood speech, where he argued that if mass immigration from non white countries continued into the UK than it would face the same kind of racial conflict and crisis that you would see that you had seen in the United States. And we should probably be clear we're talking about all this. This is the propaganda. This is not the reality of right migration, actually does to a country. Most studies show that immigrants actually raised the economy, right? Like, they pay taxes they come in and start businesses into. Now, you see Brexit happening, which basically was Ono these people are going to invade our country. So never take this big step and our economy is collapsing because. Right. They're they're like these rationalizations. These you know, were worried about wages were worried about housing prices were worried about terrorism and crime rate, and those aren't born as you said gen they're not just not borne out by the data. There's no serious hit two wages for mass migration. It usually is actually quite good for overall economic production. When you have more people the economy tends to do better. It's more powerful. The real issue. The heart of the matter is that British people are concerned about their culture, and their identity being changed by people who look different and come from different backgrounds, and they didn't want to say that. Because when you say it out loud, it sounds super racist. Because it is yet is right, but they sublimate this in terms of their bringing crime, they're bringing drugs those kinds of arguments there nothing in their best MAC. No seriously. It's it's a manifestation of the seen him problem. The aim basic argument that you saw in the United States much like Russian interference fear of immigrants is transnational sip. Bring it back to kind of the the beginning of this. Cnet in the news part of the reason, why were still in this unknown. Shambles. Is that the really hard core? Levers still really want a hard Brexit. They do not want to have to share any regulations or any immigration policies with the EU and softer Brexit like maize deal that she's actually trying to put forward would give on some of those issues. So that's why you're still having these fights. Because there are people who are still super fucking hardcore about this and other people who were like this maybe wasn't the best idea. So let's kind of take it easy here. And so you're still seeing this fight playing out today. So basically if you want to understand Brexit sentence. It's we are going to tank our economy to stop immigrants from coming here, fad bumper sticker, but and worst policy. We'll leave you with that. I want to thank our producer bird Pinkerton. I wanna thank our social media manager learn cats, well, and I want to encourage all of you to rate and subscribe and review worldly wherever you get your podcasts.

"So they're obviously these small tactical things that the rest of student, but this sort of big strategy. That's what they're up to. And it's really funny. I just wanted to add I went yesterday when we were talking about this question. I knew we're going to be talking about it on this show, and I just decided to go look at RT Russia today. Right. And see what what's their Brexit coverage? Like right now, and it's very much like amping up. How which I mean to be fair? It's not really that hard to add up how fucked at all is, but it's really like the ks crumbling like all of this really dramatic stuff which. Yeah, fair, but also you fucking helped this so stop it. So to Therese's question, it's not really driving the debate right now. This fact of Russian interference like we just sort of know that it happened trying to figure out the extent to which it did. But Britain is is more consumed very now with the pressing problem of their economy, potentially going off cliff and not so much retrospectively worrying about the Russia stuff at least as the frontline debate. In in the UK is important. It's just it's not enough to invalidate the referenda, bro. Not British people did actually vote for this. Even if Russia, maybe helped convince them a little bit, right? And we don't know the extent to its rush interference. Actually impacted the rate outcomes. Right. Like in the US. It's very similar very very similar though. There may not have been actual collusion. We'll say no collusion. No collusion. No collusion. All right. Our next question comes from a listener named Mike he asked I don't understand. What was so horrible about the EU that it drove levers, what are their issues? Anyway, this is an interesting question because there is what they said. And then there's what the actual reasons were right? So what did they say on paper? The leave argument basically has to do with sovereignty. So their argument was that regulations that they have to abide by because they are part of the EU are restrictive are not fair to the UK or even as they are like we didn't get to vote on this. We being the British people, right? We didn't get to elect these leaders who are doing this. Is this European parliament really far away? We can't develop her own regulatory policies and also our own immigration policies. And that's the big kind of second part of this. It's related. So by being a member of the EU, you essentially to agree to have fundamentally open borders within the EU so people from other EU, Member States can come and go as they please without having to apply for like work visas, and all of the kind of normal stuff, you would have to do if you move to a foreign country to live or work, so free movement of people free movement of goods, and you have to buy the EU rules and before we get to why. That's all bullshit. I wanted explain why that's a good cover because a lot of countries in the U are genuinely upset that. There is a sort of a bigger body governing laws and making sure that things are more equal within the continent. This causes certain problems. I mean in many countries I've been to go. Yeah. Well, you know, we would wanna do trade this way. But we can't because of the you wanted immigration this way can't and that's all well and good. But at the end of the day, they'll chose to join this union. And so there it is. But there's a reason why that sort of resonates to an audience, right? Yeah. It's not a crazy to say that there are concerns over sovereignty created by the EU a lot of. Sophisticated observers say that, but it is just not the case that your average voter or most of the voters in the UK were thinking like what we really need is to control our own regulations about cheese. Right, right. It's not defend maybe but much are not she's makers there was one cheese lever. Okay. The the real issue is what John was hinting, which is immigration, right, it if you look at in depth data on who voted for Brexit..

"Time's the charm. I dunno saying what the the justification for this extension is like, look, I swear I'll try one more time to force vote. See if I can make it work. And if not I don't know what's going to happen. So it's still pretty much in the air. And that's where we are now. Well, it's good to see that this is still a complete mess. But now with the future of Brexit, so uncertain let's dig into the reasons why we got this bizarre crisis point right starting with this question from Theresa Halberg, which is quote did Russia influence the vote has been investigated. If there was Russian influence is that knowledge impacting the current Brexit decision. Well, Theresa we know for a fact that Russia intervened. The question is the extent of Russian intervention. We know for fact that Russian propaganda outlets like Russia today and Sputnik, we're doing one sided super pro Brexit coverage. We know for fact that Russian botnets and Twitter accounts and stuff like that were pushing on the day of the vote. Pro leave messages. The question is how much further it went the that. So there's a lot of uncertainty surrounding one of the big 'financiers of the leaving the EU campaign a guy named Aaron banks who seems to have the donated a mysterious amount of money that he should not have been able to afford to one part of the leaf campaign, and he has some shady links to Russia that have led a lot of people to speculate, I including investigations that are ongoing to suggest that he very well may have gotten money from Russia and bidding laundering point that allowed Russia to fund the leaf campaign without actually, you know, funding belief campaign banks and his name is banks. There. Also, a lot of names that American listeners in particular may be familiar with that are wrapped up in this Aaron Bank scandal..

"Nine boot to comes into power. And he's by no means a nice guy. He's an impressive for a while. And he leads in that style. But what he's somewhat revered for are actually should say. Quite revered for is taking broken pieces from that civil war and bringing the country together quelling violence starting the formation of a state getting an economy going, and so he was not he's not the best guy. But he at least brought stability to the country. And now, he's eighty two years old. He also had a stroke a few years back that paralyzed him and made him basically mute, but he was running for president again, despite all of that running for president should be put in quotes, right because L jury is not a free society with fair election like your imprisoned. If you criticize the government to harshly to loudly protest movements are not well received by the protests literally at all in the capitol. Yeah. And so this was this election was basically a coronation, right? The elites that supported him in Algerian society to really the sort of underpinnings of his continued power. We're like we gotta keep this guy in charge, which is weird. Right. Because he seemed not really. Available ruling. You're exactly right. I mean, there's a reason why these elites wanted him. It's because they could continue to lead from behind so to speak keep their privileged position that could keep their power and shadow rule Algieria. And then when we say it'll eats we mean, specifically people in the military and the business community and people who are sort of longtime political operators exactly it's sort of hard core of people who've benefited from booed Affleck authoritarian regime, so he is having to be out of the country for medical care. Because again, you know, he had this stroke. He's in really poor health. He hasn't actually been seen in public hardly at all for years. He'll issue can of written statements that people will come out in read. And so people were pissed when basically they announced that he is going to be running for a -nother term for a fifth term. He literally didn't even go himself to fill out the paperwork he needed to run for a fifth term because he was in Switzerland getting medical care. He wasn't even in the country. So when this happened all these protesters come into the streets, people are pissed right there. Like, look, dude. We appreciate what you've done for us. You know after this brutal civil war. But like it's time for you to go because you're really old, and we're not even sure who's running the country. It's not clear who's kind of behind him is sort of like this really gruesome like weakened Verney situation where he's like this puppet. That is just like this figurehead. Meanwhile, all these people behind the scenes who weren't even like fake, elected, right? Are the ones in power. And so you have these protesters out there saying this is not okay anymore. The protest started in outer cities, but then moved into the capital, whereas John mentioned earlier, you're not supposed to protests under L jury in law, but the protests were so powerful. And there was so many people who are coming out. There was very difficult for the government to simply just repress it without truly horrific mass violence, so they decided the better tactic would be to give into the protests to say. Say we're just not going to have booed Affleck run for a fifth term. And there's a weird statement where he's like me running for a fifth term was never on the table, which is weird because they said a few days early. So like really quickly got back into the country. Like, he. Yeah. He's like, I guess I should probably get back to the country since they're all rioting. And so like now now what rightly I don't. I don't actually know what happens at this point. I don't know if anybody does. No, no, no one, and that's actually kind of one of the issues here. So one of the things you need to know from these protesters as well is one of the reasons beautifully survived the Arab spring from a bid a few years back was because there is this core belief in ALgeria after the civil war that they want stability. And so you might not be super happy beautifully..
