Breonna Taylor settlement is among largest payouts linked to a police shooting

Breonna Taylor settlement is among largest payouts linked to a police shooting

"Gorman. If you wanna listen to it. Let's start with the settlements in Louisville with Briana Taylor's family a couple different things to run through of the next few minutes. Earlier this week, the Louisville metro government announced a $12 million settlement package with family of Briana Taylor. Of course, was 26 year old black woman who was shot in her own home by police officers serving a no knock warrant in March. The settlement also includes a Siri's of police reforms. Some of the reforms are changes to the approval process for an execution of search warrants. The hiring of social workers at the department a commitment to increase drug and alcohol testing of officers involved in any shooting, encouraging officers to perform at least two paid hours a week of community service in the communities they serve. And housing credits for officers toe live in certain low income parts of the city. And Felix, You took a look at the settlement. What stood out to you? Well, I think two things one. It was a record breaking settlement in and of itself. The $12 million payout. Briana Taylor's family's attorney, Benjamin Crump, represents George Floyd's family and multiple others in these situations, he said. It himself is the most money it's ever been paid for. A police involved shooting involving anyone, so that's significant itself. But Briana Taylor's mother, I said I think said it best. This is just the beginning the reform package they put together that was interesting that they the mirror who's got a vote of no confidence the other night. Apparently, you know, insisted that that was going to be part of the settlement agreement from the day one, which was good because they announced it together. It's not just about the money, but it's about the reform, which in one of these cases That's what is the driving factor, not necessarily the money. So you mentioned the key ones that are involved in this. It's interesting because we talked about the social worker aspect of Policing before because of a policy that sheriff Bob Altieri put in place here in Pinellas County, where he wanted social workers to go out to these mental health calls first on their own, try and de escalate them. And then if there's trouble than calling the police, which was You and I both thought that was a bad idea in this particular reform. Does that frothy area was that Holloway? That help earlier think that was. Yeah, I think it was cheap and also got a theory. But it's a same Pete initiative. So anyway, sorry about that. But in anyone what they will do in this case is social workers will go with The police officers on these calls or meet them out at the call, not endanger themselves. So it's kind of being that's what we thought should happen is that that's the more responsible, appropriate way to do it rather than just sending people out on their own. And then you know if the situation escalates. You got a problem on your hands. Yeah, exactly. Do you don't have time to wait for an officer to show up or say like, Hey, wait around the corner while I go talk to this person suicidal and walked in the bathroom of the gun. You know, and then ends up ends up shooting an unarmed social worker, and the other thing That's interesting is that we talked about the no knock warrants. They enacted a law in Louisville already doing away with down, But then they went one step further. Just like now, this is sheriff quality areas policy, which was the more hierarchy in terms of getting the warrant. So The way it used to work here in Fort is like you would have the detective's whether it's robbery homicide. Narcotics. Those are the ones that usually get the most warrants. They would review the case they would take their warrant to the state attorney's office. State attorney would review it and then they would be the ones to say Okay, you can go ahead and go to a judge. Well, what they done in Louisville and Penelas is that they built in another law of letter layer. Inside the department level, so supervisors will have to sign off on the warrants before they can Goth to get approval from prosecutors or the judges or accountability exactly within the department, So you don't have Because we've read the the warrants and the stories about what happened in Briana Taylor's case, and they were so thin in the connections they were trying to make Tio, the main suspect. They've lived on the other side of town, and the tenuous nature of it was the fact that she paid this guy's phone bill was an ex boyfriend of hers and also had his shoes delivered an Amazon package delivered and they immediately made the jump that that was somehow Drug trafficking activities, so that should be reviewed at a much higher level, and that's something I think I encourage. I think you'll see a lot more departments doing that. And like I said Florida, we have that additional level of the prosecutors by think it should go down one level more in order for the police involved to say, like hold on a second. Let's review this before. You go to a prosecutor with us because I got put into situations a lot of times where the detectives would get a thumbs down from a prosecutor on the case, and then they call another prosecutor in the prosecutor would say, Oh, no, This is perfectly fine. And so you have those sites of mixed messaging on stuff and that could get very dicey because not only if you go from one prosecutor, another And for example, I said, No, you don't have enough for a warrant, And then they go to another prosecutor that they're friends with. And they say, you know, they can approve the warrant that tire up to me, then you know, on Well at that point, So that's the thing the problem that they have with that so interesting reforms that they're going to do and the one I like the most. I think the most interesting is giving them the housing credits to move into. The neighborhoods that they are patrolling. So I want to see the follow up on that to see

"O D. You're listening to Russia's week in review that we're back Rush Limbaugh E I being that work meeting and surpassing all audience expectations every day. I just had a new opinion on it in from the Sullivan Group. And it remains that I am documented to be almost always right 99.8% of the time. All right, so the signing ceremony is about to begin. The whole ceremony has begun to the White House Donald Trump and the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu. Is a truly historic and it is. I don't think going to get anywhere near The proper weight and coverage that this event Deserves. My whole life. This has been a major political initiative that every New president. Tackles every new print my entire life. Every new president. Every new term has made Middle East peace. An objective Now, over the course of my life, the politics of Middle East peace has changed. I remember during the Clinton years The American Jewish community back in the nineties was a far different arrangement than it is today. They were very much pro Israel and very, very you. You had to be pro Israel if you were going to get their support. And the Democrat Party was all in on Israel. Bill Clinton, especially And it was it was a way to raise money from the American Jewish community. It was away, Tio Maintain support. Of the Jewish organizations in Washington. Then his time evolved. Ah Liberal American Jewish people suddenly became less enamored of Israel as Netanyahu and other right wing leaders became prominent. And it was a fast anything TTO watch as American Jewish leaders and prominent Democrats. Again to not support Israel began to blame Israel. For the problems in the Middle East. And they became advocates of the Palestinians. The Palestinians became the Middle East equivalent of American minorities. They were unfairly treated. They had a lifetime. Multiple lifetimes of disrespect shown them. And the Palestinians became no different than that, then blacks so that workers apartheid it was a fasting thing. The watch and the Democrat Party. Began to have shifting allegiances toward Israel. And then we got Obama and there was outright disgust. For Israel. For the eight years of the Obama to the point that Obama's making nuclear deals with Iran. To the point that the Obama administration wass attempting To elevate Iran into the dominant power in the Middle East, despite the fact that Iran is not a U. S ally. Israel is our ally in the Middle East, and the Saudis are are also in the ally column. But it was. It was fascinating to watch. Then you go back to the Clinton nineties. And here is Clinton offering Yasser Arafat of the P l O virtually everything he wants, because presidents wanted this deal. This was going to get them eternal life in history books. Every president, I can start with JFK. And every president going forward salivated over the ultimate peace deal in the Middle East. Involving Arab nations and Israel, and they they all thought that if they could be the ones that made this happen, that they would get eternal praise eternal life. In world history books. And they all Engaged in massive efforts, some of them with silly, stupid proposals like Clinton offering the P l O everything they were demanding, which Was not good for Israel. Here's Bill Clinton essentially selling Israel out and the Israelis have no choice but to go along with it, because we are of our primary ally. And so every George W. Bush George H. W. Bush. Barack Obama is the only president who didn't care about Middle East peace from the Israeli perspective. But Reagan Jimmy Carter. I think about all of these presidents in their attempts to come up. With the ultimate peace. In the ultimate part of the world where there is ultimate strife. The Middle East and Who does it, Donald Trump. Donald Trump, Mr. Bull in a China shop, Mr in legitimate, Mr. He stole the election working with the Russians has come along and achieved something. Every American president. Since the 19 fifties has been attempting to achieve And how did he do it? He did it by going at it an entirely different way. He did it by leaving the Palestinians out of the process. This would be like trying to establish civil rights relations while ignoring Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. And this is exactly what Trump did. And Lo and behold, it worked. We now have peace in the Middle East and it's just beginning. United Arab Emirates, Bahrain you watch the Saudis are going to be signatory, said his deal before long. Other Arab nations in the Middle East. Are going to come along with this. Jordan, I expect will sign onto this at some point. King Abdullah there. And it's happening because the Palestinians have been for the moment. Left out of the deal. The Palestinians were always the roadblock. The Palestinians were always the reason there was never going to be a deal. No Arab nation wanted the Palestinians in their country, so we had to have a state Palestinians and we have two state solution. We have to have the Israelis they had to have a Jewish state. We had to have the Palestinians and the end of the state and the Palestinians wanted their state to be where Israel is. There was no way that was ever gonna happen short of a war. And so this is how the Palestinians and I'm really giving it a cliff Notes version here. This is on the Palestinians were able To thwart and forced all Middle East peace. Because their demands were not Amenable. Couldn't meet their demands and maintain an allied relationship with Israel. So trump and his son in law, Jared Kushner, come in, and they look at this and they decided to go about it the whole different way..

Coronavirus: Israel marks Jewish New Year with second lockdown

Coronavirus: Israel marks Jewish New Year with second lockdown

"Rush Shawna or Jewish New Year begins at sunset this evening. But for Israel this new. Year's anything. But happy as the country becomes the first major economy to enter into a second. Nationwide lockdown against a backdrop of serious discontent towards the handling of the pandemic and the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu himself Israel, which was one of the first countries to enact stringent measures to inhibit the spread of the virus is shutting down. Again, the three weeks we'll joining me now is Alison Kopplin summer who is a journalist for hurt a good morning to you alison. Why is this can lockdown necessary? Well. It's basically necessary because our infection rates which reached a really dramatic low back in in May. have been creeping up all through the summer months and then I'm have basically exploded beginning. At the end of August, beginning of September which was really. Enhanced by the the return of of kids to school we really see that they've absolutely been able to to mark. A connection between the fact that kids went back to school on. September first and that since then the the rates have been have been doubling and and surging among the general population at an unprecedented rate before that, it was basically concentrated in certain populations, certain cities, certain neighborhoods. But as kids went back to school, it just exploded across the entire population. So this goes against what the so corona virus saw said a couple of months ago when he asserted the socio economic trauma inflicted by covert restrictions was greater than its health impacts. So can you help line the state of the economy and how these further restrictions will impact on businesses? Well. There's been a huge debate going into this lockdown as to the extent to which private businesses should be allowed to continue business as usual a huge debate over the the pain that closing down business will cause versus the attempt to to fight the to fight the lockdown We already have a major unemployment problem and unlike European countries Israel has not been fully compensating businesses for their losses. and. So there's a huge bitter angry rebellion by business owners small and large and not insignificant chance that this time around because people have much less faith than they did in the first lockdown there's going to be a lot of businesses I predict violating the restrictions and an opening for business even in the face of the of the restrictions I mean, what does the Don actually entailed? Everything must close. Everything must close except for essential services such as supermarkets and and pharmacies public offices will be open, but they won't receive. receive the public in In Government Offices Private businesses. Again, this came after fight are two privately reopened with a with a minimal amount of staff in in Workplaces So you know the economy is being partially allowed to function. That's why there are so many as they say, Swiss cheese holes in this lockdown but they're worried that you know in the attempts to keep the economy going to an extent know if schools are out, you can't have a full economy running. That they're putting so many holes in it in order to keep the the economy functioning at a certain rate that it's going to be ineffective in terms of of actually bringing the infection rate down significantly what about the situation in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip? The situation is bad there too. There's a lockdown in Gaza right now and and the West Bank is also suffering from from it from an outbreak. So they are they're not in any kind of renewed full scale lockdown, the way that that we are, but they are they're in a difficult place as well. Now, this as you mentioned a huge amount of opposition to this and people are actually protesting who's out on the streets. Well There's always been a religious secular divide in. Israel? Approximately. Twenty twenty, five percent of our population are Orthodox smaller. percent of that are also Orthodox and those daybreak cities where the ultra-orthodox resided partially because of the large family size there and how how dense their residences is that has been really a hotbed of infection as well as Arab towns and. Cities and so it's been very hard for them to specially over a long period of six months to stop with their large gatherings, their traditions, their prayers, etc, and that is countered by. On, the other side and on the secular side, the need to protest against a Netanyahu how he's had this corruption trial, they've had large protests. So basically, there's this back and forth going on why can we not gather in a? Study Jewish learning while you can gather on the streets and have a protest, and for example, why can you go to your ritual baths and we can't go to the beach? So there's there's a lot of fourth fighting and then the the biggest and most desperate cry is from the business owners who are feeling so much economic pain. So there's protests coming from from all directions and how will this affect the political situation? While the political situation isn't good to begin with one of the reasons that Israel has been. So crippled in fighting the corona virus situation is as I said, really hotbeds of infection at least as of two three months ago we're in these ultra-orthodox cities neighborhoods, and what the coronavirus czar planned to do came in trying to do is to really shut those cities down and really be able without harming the economy on a large scale to focus the approach inside these communities and political pressures. made it impossible for Netanyahu, to really stand behind his are and do the because the ultra Orthodox parties said, if you close our cities if you shut down now. If, you don't allow us to go to synagogue. We are going to leave your coalition and basically bring down the government, and that's why at every turn these ultra-orthodox parties have been able to twist the government's arm into allowing them to have more freedom than the secular public looks at what's going on in the religious sector and they say, well, if they're not GONNA do it. We're not going to do it, and then you've got a very bad dynamic there. I listen Israel forced all foreign arrivals to self isolate on March the night that was before the World Health Organization announced that it was in fact, a pandemic given the the the country is now in this situation, won't you think that other nations around the world can learn by watching this? I think really the biggest lesson that that Israel can teach the world is. Opening up schools particularly when it above the age of ten or so is really a dangerous difficult and problematic as much as we all want to see our children. In school learning getting an in person education that that is really the trigger. This is now the second time that that sending kids to school have have sent our infection rates. Rising, and that's why any kind of a resumption of studies has to be done extremely slowly carefully in a measured way starting with the youngest kids and slowly going. Up and keeping a very, very strong monitoring. On how that that is affecting the society because kids go to school, they get infected, they come home in the infect their entire families. Alison despite everything. Shana Tova.

Organization Seeks to Increase Voter Participation in America

"Cat. Calvin is the founder and executive director of Spread The Vote, a nonprofit organization that's working to increase voter turnout. Welcome to the program. Hi. Thanks for having me So One of the main things your organization is trying to do is close the gap between registered voters and voter turnout. How big of a gap are we talking about? Well about 83% of eligible voters in the country are registered. But we have an average turnout of 55% 15, maybe a little higher depending on the election, So there is a huge gap of tens of millions of voters who are registered. They've taken that first step but who have a hard time taking the many steps that it takes to actually get a ballot in So we hear a lot about voter registration drives. But why is that? Not enough? You know voter much drives a great their first step in every state except North Dakota. You have to be registered to vote. But the fact is, there are a lot of things that you have to do in between that So, for instance, one of the main things that spread the vote does is that we help people get ideas primarily in voter ID states. There are over 21 million eligible voters who don't have photo ID, but 36 states where it's required. So that means that you can look at states like Wisconsin, where there are over 300,000 registered voters who don't actually have the idea. They need to vote or 200,000, Virginia, etcetera. And so you know, that's just one big way that voter registration isn't actually looking at. What are all the other challenges you know, There's also transportation challenges. There's child care. We have a massive problem with discrimination against people with disabilities at the polls. You know, and then a huge, huge voter education gap. And so there's just a lot of things that we need to address between registration and turnout to make sure we're actually helping people explain a little bit more about the voter education gap that you see. Yeah. I mean, you know, it's interesting because I was listening to some of the questions that people had coming in. Also, I want to send bonus points to the Twitter who said that we should be doing rank choice voting because she's absolutely right. You know, the fact is that we don't We don't do a lot of civic education in schools anymore, And then we really don't do it after school, And so a lot of people just don't Really understand the voting process who they're voting for what we're voting for you. We do a tine of voter education and spread the vote. 77% of our clients have never voted before and had midterms. We had people in age ranging from 18 to 79 voting for the first time, and when they ask us questions or when we go, we get sort of thousands of questions that people just email us because we're an organization with vote in the name and it's Everything from. I don't know how I'm supposed to use this machine. I don't understand the difference between absentee voting and mail in voting in what's early voting. You know, I don't know what any of these positions are. Nobody knows what the comptroller is or what the board of supervisors is. You know, we get a lot of first time voters who we talk to you and they say I opened my ballot and I thought it was just going to be the president. But there were like 30 pages of things that I didn't know what I was supposed to do. I don't know what a ballot measure is. And so there's just a lot of sort of basic info. You know, there's also we get people who say I just open my mail in ballot and there's a bunch of pieces of paper here. I don't know what I'm supposed to do with that, you know, And so there's a lot of work that needs to be done. I'm just helping people understand what the process is. And how do you do it? How do you follow all these obstructions? And then when you look at, you know, people returning citizens the rules for returning citizens being able to vote or different everywhere, And there isn't a lot of information out about how people are supposed to know if they're eligible to vote again. How they become eligible. You know, people, Disabilities don't always know what all the requirements are and what accessibility requirements there are and what they're allowed to, You know, demand that they have it. They're polling place. And so there's just a lot of Really voting 101 information that people don't get. Well, we got this tweet from Benjamin, who says, I think the problem with voter apathy is that many people of you voting purely as a response to an agenda they did not set. It's important to stress to voters that they are just as much responsible for setting the agenda as they are for voting to set that agenda into motion, and I'm curious how much you hear from people about You know that that issue of you know? Look, I'm voting for something that I don't feel particularly a part off. Oh, absolutely. I mean, first of all, if we'd all been listening to Ralph Nader in the seventies, this would be a very different country because he basically was advocating for indivisible, right. He kept saying voting is just one day we have to be sure that we are keeping these politicians accountable that we're telling them what we want that we're making sure that they do it. And you know, one of the things that we try really hard to do now is remind people that voting is not the whole movement, but it's a big part of and that it is a thing. We have to do it once a year. Twice a year, however many times you vote in your community, but it is just one way. Of changing this democracy of setting the agenda, and so we have to still be taking to the streets. We have to still be calling into the police Commission meetings are going to City Council meetings. You know, we have to be finding and recruiting really amazing members of our community who we think would be great. You know, members of elected office and then supporting them. It's a lot more than voting that voting. Because we live in a democracy is a key part on I think when people understand I'm not just voting once a year and walking away and then someone else is making decisions, but that I'm helping to set those decisions and push those decisions and once a year voting is my way of grading how I think that those decisions were made and maybe hiring somebody new and firing someone excited, read, then it puts the power a lot more into the voters hands.

ICE whistleblower speaks out, alleges mass hysterectomies performed on migrant women

"Yesterday will learn about a whistleblower, a nurse working at Georgia Immigrations and Customs Enforcement Ice Facility. Leveling, honestly, ghastly allegations chief among them that women in that facility migrant women say that doctor was performing unauthorized hysterectomies on immigrant women detained that facility, which again is privately run. Now, you might have seen this story zipping around social media understandably, and the allegations come from formal complaint that was actually filed with the watchdog at the Department of Homeland Security and the whistle is on the record is named. Her name is Don Wooten, she was employed by. That detention center and along with those unauthorized hysterectomies, the complaint also alleges the facility lacked protection against Corona virus for detained immigrants that detainees suffer from a general lack of medical care. We've been chasing this story all day along some of my colleagues here and NBC tonight we can report a lawyer named Benjamin o Soro representing women at that very facility told him BC news that indeed two of his clients received hysterectomies they believe may have been unnecessary and tonight. We hear on all Lynn spoke with another attorney who represents two different women who claimed they also had unnecessary hysterectomies while detained at this facility. That lawyer tells us that as many as fifteen immigrant women were given full or partial hysterectomies or other procedures for which no medical indication existed. Now we reached. With these accusations, they sent us a long statement disputing. Allegations and the implication that detainees are used for experimental medical procedures. They do say an independent office will investigate. These claims is also says that since two thousand eighteen, only two individuals facility were referred to certified credential medical professionals for hysterectomies. Of course, the referred is the question here. I should also tell you also reached out to private company that runs US facility, or they are not commenting on the specific allegations. They say, they have a strict zero tolerance policy for any kind of appropriate inappropriate behavior facilities and they refute any allegations of misconduct. Were hurt the nurse behind that whistleblower complaint who got this all started Don wooten and her lawyer John Whitty, join me now don wounded and John Whitney. It's great to have you both. Thank you very much. Ms I want to start with you and just ask you to tell us what you did. What was your job at this facility? When did you start working there? I was first employed. Irwin. Kinda detention center in twenty. Ten. been to this facility three on three different occasions. Are returned in. Twenty. Fourteen worked until twenty. Sixteen. On came back in two thousand nineteen. On I was a nurse, their medication nurse. Six eighty, six, p.. We did total detainee and totally inmate care will responsibilities there. You talk about in the complaint. Hearing from women who are detained they're talking about a specific doctor. Performing hysterectomies referring giving uterus collector tell us about how you heard about this doctor and what women said about their experiences with. You have detained women had several detained women on numerous occasions that would come to me and say Ms. Wooten. Historic to me. Why I had answers as to why they hit those procedures. and One lady while up to me here. This last time around between. October nineteen until July the second and she said, what is he is he the uterus collector? Does he collect uteruses? And I asked her what did she mean? And she says everybody that I've talked to has had a hysterectomy. And you just don't know what to say. I mean I. Don't I don't have a answer for why that they would come to me. and. I would say, is it a uterus later? How would you describe? How would you describe the standard of Care? The general sort of? Medical Environment in which these these migrants were detained. The Standard of care. was. It wasn't timely all the time. They would have. A procedure to where they will fill out forms to be seeing. Those forms shredded. They will be towed in area instances that you know there's nothing going on with them just on numerous occasions and as a human, you just don't treat people inhumane. I have a title as a licensed practical nurse and I protect my title with dignity to where I was raised by you treat people as you want to be treated. These sanitation especially doing Kobe the sanitation was horrible would have anything to sanitize with. We didn't have the proper PP so they didn't have the proper PP e they didn't have anything to sanitize. We'd while they were down in the dorms as Wael and when you ask You will be reprimand. Did you have cases of Covid in facility. What were the steps taken to deal with the outbreak in the country happened. When we first the first case of covert. Dan Facility it was covert is not here in the facility. Then we had another case and it was like it was not here in the facility we had several more cases and it was like cold was not here in the facility. You know there was not a proper separation of those detainees whenever they come in and you know there's a fourteen day incubation period. No, they weren't separated. You know whenever you question you didn't have the proper PP. I admit I refuse I have sickle sale. I have kids who have underlying conditions as well. They're asthmatics. So the protocol was not being fought. It was not properly reported to the health department was not properly reported to the CDC nor was it properly reported to sail? You were. Essentially demoted as my understanding from the complaint that from from a from a fulltime employees, sort of more kind of at will. Swing employees. Your contention is that was essentially punishment for your statements about the unsafe environment you felt there your resistance. To working when you had symptoms Zach is that is my understanding correct there. Yes. Mr Woody, you look like you want to say something. What do you want to? I did want to jump in and say that Ms Wooten has been a vocal. Critic of the conditions within the facility for you know for many months and the you know the the the the the the most recent retaliation of demoting her was you know to some extent was just a buildup of all of her per internal whistleblowing over the course of a month and especially since the beginning of covert. Do, you have further Mr Woody I. Wonder if people sincere the attorney attached this. And I know there's a number of groups that have worked together. On this complaint. We've now spoken to one one or on the record and other lawyer anonymously about women the women coming forward with these complaints. Do you expect that we will see? More public declarations of these allegations from women who actually experienced it. Well, it's a very challenging situation to come forward with information like that, and there's a lot of risks to to to way out Weather more will actually be able to summon the courage to talk about it certainly through their attorney is an excellent process is to make those disclosures and with the number of cases that that MS wooten others allude to There's a lot. There's a large population of these of these women immigrants who've who've had this who've been mistreated in this way assaulted Should you know there there's a pool there that could come forward. Let's hope they do ms miserable. What would you like to see happen in this facility? What are you? What do you think the? Adjust. Set of of of changes would look like. Unadjusted of changes would be a change management. If you change management, then there's a possibility, there will be corrective measures but if not changing management then I'm afraid that it would be hard to correct those measures. Don. Wooden, who's the whistle blower in this complaint against this facility ice facility run by Private Corporation in Georgia John Woody her attorney. Tremendous bravery coming forward MS wooden. Thank you so much for sharing your story tonight. I. Really appreciate it.

President Trump presides over a reshaping of Middle East power dynamic

"The White House was trying to resolve the Israeli Palestinian conflict with the quote deal of the century, but the Palestinians were not among those signing the so called Abraham Accords today. It was the foreign ministers of the United Arab Emirates in Bahrain, agreeing to open diplomatic and economic ties with Israel. President Trump's staged an elaborate ceremony to mark the occasion were here this afternoon to change the course of history. After decades of division and conflict, we marked the dawn of a new Middle East. Neither Bahrain nor the United Arab Emirates were at war with Israel. They had been working quietly together to counter Iran. Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, thanked the the US US president, president, You You have have unequivocally unequivocally stood stood by by Israel Israel side. side. You You have have boldly boldly confronted confronted the the tyrants tyrants of of Tehran. Tehran. You've proposed a realistic vision for peace between Israel and the Palestinians, Palestinian see the deal's as a betrayal by their Arab allies and an effort by the Trump administration to undermine the Arab peace initiative. That plan calls for normalization with Israel after the Israeli Palestinian conflict is resolved. The Trump Administration took a different approach, says Aaron David Miller of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. They reserved all the honey for Israel in the key Arab states and all the vinegar for the Palestinians. The idea is that as Arab states normalize ties with Israel and get big arms deals with the U. S. They will put pressure on the Palestinians to make peace with Israel on terms more favourable to Netanyahu. Miller says It's known as the outside in approach, and he recalls numerous conversations about this with Trump's son in law and advisor Jared Kushner. It was just easier for them. It was more attractive for them. It was much more in keeping with the pro Israeli sensibilities both for political reasons, and in the case of Mr Questioner and others emotionally To align themselves with the eyes outside in approach. It's starting to pay off. But the Trump administration is still short of its ultimate prize, Miller says. Getting Saudi Arabia on board. My only concern is that they have hyped and Who plotted to the point where That may not yet be wanted. But if other Arab states join the party, particularly the Saudis, then I think you've got something that will be much more enduring. The Arab foreign minister say they're not turning their backs on Palestinians and Moradi Abdullah bin Zayed, speaking through an interpreter reminded Netanyahu that he agreed to suspend plans to annex parts of the Israeli occupied West Bank. You can look after dark cell. Um thank you for choosing peace and for halting the annexation off Palestinian territories at position that reinforces our shared will To achieve a better future for generations to come. In this time of a pandemic. The men didn't wear masks as they signed their deals with Israel. They did, however, avoid a public handshake. And while the ceremony was taking place at the White House, Palestinian militants in Gaza fired two rockets into southern Israel.

"Prime. Minister Benjamin. Netanyahu is set to sewing agreements with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in an official ceremony. The White House today establishing full relations between Israel and the two Gulf states the in Bahrain will be the third and fourth Arab states to normalize ties with Israel following peace treaty signed with Egypt in Nineteen, seventy, nine and Jordan in one, thousand, nine, hundred, four as captain. That some journalist for Herat's joins us on the line now for more alison good afternoon to you. Thanks for being with us a a momentous day. I guess potentially Tell us what the story is though behind this story if you like for the Gulf States is this about? Is this about trade? Do we know more about what the sort of strategic alliance is really going to look like? Well, the clear motivation for these Gulf states in taking their relationship with Israel out of the closet because people who live in Israel and especially in the business community here know that there have been you know practical economic ties between the Gulf states you a and and buffering literally for for decades. So this is more of a public declaration than it is some sort of new development or arrangement, but the primary. Motivator everyone knows is the common interests that Israel and the Gulf states have in encountering the UH, the aggression, the the posturing of Iran. The the enemy of my enemy is my friend dynamic and and the Gulf states with the strong encouragement of the trump administration and the white. House have convinced the states to move beyond the position that the Palestinian issue is is more important than their common strategic interests with Israel. Well, that was going to be my next question, which is, where does this leave? Iran did you think to a degree to Horon has been somewhat wrong-footed by this How'd you think? No be be responding what are we hearing? Well. They can't have completely expected it. We haven't heard a lot of loud noises out of Iran strategically. The United States is trying to engineer and what Israel is also hoping is to line up enough of the Arab world on the side of a reconciliation conciliation with Israel as to leave Iran relatively isolated and Iran so goes the proposition won't be able to survive as a completely isolated player in the in the Arab world. So we haven't heard a lot out of Iran except for the general denunciations but we'll probably be hearing a lot once this the. Ceremony is done and you know reminder there's no details yet of the content of what this declaration is going to be at the White House today on both sides it's been hush hush. So we have absolutely no idea what is going to be said, what is going to be declared so you know on both sides on the left and on the right on the Israeli right in the Arab world, we may be in for considerable amount of reaction and criticism. Once we actually know what's inside. You mentioned Palestinians just briefly earlier and it's been interesting to see this been this fairly established long standing consensus I suppose on the Arab side that you know you you couldn't have normalized relations with Israel that was viewed by many as as something of a prerequisite for for for Palestinian independence I don't if you necessarily go along with that reading but. Palestinians feel well, certainly aggrieved you. We read the word betrayal in some in some statements. Do you think that's the correct way to look at the the Palestinian position? That's definitely the way that to look at the Palestinian position. They feel betrayed by their their brothers in the Arab world. But remember you know this isn't exactly new. They have much closer neighbors and connections with the the countries of Jordan and Egypt choose the WHO's peace accords who's state of non hostility with Israel is also longstanding. So this isn't unique in the Arab world to to prioritize making peace with Israel in and turning towards the West as. A way of of of improving their economic in their domestic concerns and you know more and more I think these countries especially in some of these you know autocracies in the Gulf states they look internally and they look at their own stability and they say, you know we have to protect ourselves. We have to worry about ourselves more than we We worry about the Palestinian people vote is definitely a blow to the Palestinian cause. The Israelis and the Americans are hoping that this will. Soften the Palestinians and make them more amenable to to compromise in in potential negotiations with Israel. From the Israeli side. Then tell us a bit about some of the conversations. Your your having clearly is something that was expedient from a business point of view. It's expedient strategically as you mentioned because of the the the shad threat or the two that Iran poses what about this broader feeling that maybe it's a really meaningful step in the direction of ending this sort of slightly isolated regional picture for for for for for Israeli that too much to hope for. Oh I. Think it's huge in the eyes of the the average Israeli the coming to some sort of a normalization of a status with countries like the U. A. N. and Bahrain Israelis for years have been looking at V with envy at European who can fly in and out of places. Like Dubai, it's going to be huge as a tourist destination for for Israelis you know they feel very kind of trapped in a in a hostile region, and so the more countries here that that open up to them open up to them the better you know it's It's an irony and I'm sure a disappointment for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the fact that what will certainly be viewed as greatest diplomatic achievement. In, his more than a decade of being prime minister as far as these other people are concerned are overshadowed by what they feel is the failure and is handling of the coronavirus crisis and the very few Israelis there on a celebratory mood as they look at the what's going on in Washington, DC as they prepare to be the first Western country to go into a second full lockdown as a result of their soaring corona virus. Rate. I have I have to ask you about the Alison as you mentioned, the first country in the world to impose a second national lockdown to begin what by the end of this week? What is the mood? Is it about I wonder people are some people sanguine about the fact that this is a huge unprecedented challenge and so people having to make decisions on the on the WHO for is there a feeling? They want answers from government still why it's at the moment only then. People are very unhappy and very discontent. In the particularly because it's been such a roller coaster ride Israel really now the first lockdown got the infection rate down very low and they were a complete failure when it came to the reopening process political interests financial interests pushed, and pressured Netanyahu to re open economically open the schools reopened synagogues. And allowing large gatherings much much too quickly, and it got the virus you know from a very manageable rate to rate in which things were were out of control and so There was an an attempt to do sort of localized lockdowns that the so-called red cities would be shut down and not do this to the entire country but it got very politicized in certain cities felt that they were being targeted certain populations that they were being discriminated against that it wasn't going by the. Strictly. By the numbers, they saw it as discrimination against ultra-orthodox cities or Arab cities which were headed to the the centers of infection. It became a whole political argument and discussion nothing effective happened, and basically the government decided that because of our situation nothing except the complete national measure national lockdown would would be affected in significantly lowering the infection rate here. Alison. Fascinating. Religiously to hear from you today, that was a good friend, Alison Captain Summer there joining us here on the briefing.

"Hello. Everyone. Welcome to the addicted mind podcast. My guest today is Benjamin Hardy and he is going to talk about his upcoming book personality isn't Herman. INT- and Benjamin excited to have you on the show. I really want to talk about as we were talking about earlier talking about <hes> science-based changed. So before we do that, you want to introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about your story. Yeah. Absolutely. Man. Yeah. I guess the beginning of it really or at least the major kind of huge event that started my journey was my parents getting divorced at age eleven and I came from a background where my parents were kind of a religious family and When my parents divorced that stopped being a big part of our life at all. But my father was so torn up by the addiction in the depression of it. All that he ended up becoming an extreme drug addict actually while yeah, he was. It was intense man i. mean our house became literally a crazy place filled with drug addicts. ooh. Here, was also there's anything everything you can think of out in the open, really interesting to see <hes>. My Dad was a hero to me. He was also like a really successful guy in it. Just kind of really threw him down. You know he was an attorney and he was it just really was interesting to watch this kind of experience lasted. I, was eleven the oldest of three boys at lasted until I was around. Around nineteen or twenty. I have no clue how I graduated from High School I was the oldest of three and I was kind of suppressing everything that was going on and ultimately we shut out my dad and my mom was living apartment to apartment just trying to she was actually trying to run a health club with her sister a small business, and so she was kind of go go go new zero stability in. In, my younger brother ended up dropping out of high school. He tried joining the Marines ended up <unk> getting kicked out. I, ended up at age nineteen. I was living at my cousin's house on his couch playing world of warcraft all day doing nothing and just was incredibly unhappy, Viktor. Frankl. Who wrote the book man's search for meaning he talks a lot about in that book and he's referencing the Holocaust, but he talks. Talks about how when a person loses hope and purpose for their future. The present becomes meaningless and that was kind of where I was at I. Didn't really have much hope or purpose for my life in my life was very meaningless. I was my purpose may have been to like get to the next level on world of war craft. It was not creating an enormous amount of meeting in my life and so I've. Connected with my face. I ended up serving a church mission for a few years. Totally changed my life, expose myself to a lot of things. Read. A lot of books saw a lot of people helped. A lot of people did a crazy amount of journaling. I. Reconnected With My Dad. He ended up overcoming addictions while I was on that experience. We've since become amazing friends. So you have a lot of his personal experience with addiction and Canada chaos that comes with all of that Oh. Yeah. Yeah. My life was chaos for a long time man I. Mean I was eleven year old boy and I had zero stability. There's capital T. Trauma. There's lower trauma you know in capital. T I. Guess You could say would be just like a cute events that occur just intense events that shaped your identity, but like lower t from what I understand is being in a chaotic environment and just kind of having zero footing zero. Zero certainty at. All right. So it Kinda leaves you lost and all of that and things like world of warcraft craft allow you to escape. Yeah. Yeah. That's kind of how I view addiction. I learned that from Gabor Montana, Polish really is addiction really is a solution, right? It's short term solution, but it's a solution to handling the pain and right. It actually can be a very good solution in the moment although there can be repercussions. So I had my own addictions, I've had my own experiences with that in the past. So what I want to ask you about too because I definitely want to get. Get, into your to your books and stuff and some of the things that you talk about in making change in your life. But before we do that, how did you start to make this change or what was the moment where he said I got to do something different I, mean you talked about going on a mission and starting to see different parts of the world and starting to see things differently. But when did it really start to change for you? There are a few things like when I was living my cousin's at first off I was completely unhappy with my life which I think is. something. A lot of people can relate with as part of the process of going on a mission you have to at least in various religions or situations. You also have to go through what they call a repentance process, which is similar to I. Think what? Like a twelve step process would be where you have break openly acknowledged in admit to everything you've done I, forgive. Forgive people in. So part of my process was forgiving my dad like redeveloping relationship with him. I also got into running so like even though I was not working and I was playing world of warcraft <unk> start exercising <unk> running, and you know it started with just a mile a day I. am the reason I started on because my cousin invited me to go with. With, him and we would just run like two or three days a week and I kind of enjoyed it, and he stopped going with me and I just kind of decided to keep going in. It ended up actually turning into me running a marathon or I was yeah. Like when I was nineteen, but I mean it started small and I would just run two miles. Miles couple times a week, and then I started running a little bit more and listening to music in getting a little bit more into it. I'd run in the middle of the night like <unk>. Right. I watched the movie on Fight Club on like repeat like I'd be I. Get get from running a movie fight club would be in the background I'd be playing. Playing was warcraft and the only thing that changes that running and I just jumped straight my mom's hot tub in her apartment complex. But while I was running I, think I was not consciously kind of subconsciously the building confidence. But also I was I was thinking I was not distracting myself as much as actually thinking about my life thinking about my future

In, my younger brother ended up dropping out of high school. He tried joining the Marines ended up <unk> getting kicked out. I, ended up at age nineteen. I was living at my cousin's house on his couch playing world of warcraft all day doing nothing and just was incredibly unhappy, Viktor. Frankl. Who wrote the book man's search for meaning he talks a lot about in that book and he's referencing the Holocaust, but he talks. Talks about how when a person loses hope and purpose for their future. The present becomes meaningless and that was kind of where I was at I. Didn't really have much hope or purpose for my life in my life was very meaningless. I was my purpose may have been to like get to the next level on world of war craft. It was not creating an enormous amount of meeting in my life and so I've. Connected with my face. I ended up serving a church mission for a few years. Totally changed my life, expose myself to a lot of things. Read. A lot of books saw a lot of people helped. A lot of people did a crazy amount of journaling. I. Reconnected With My Dad. He ended up overcoming addictions while I was on that experience. We've since become amazing friends.

It's perhaps overwhelming to take on completely so I. Will I will I have skimmed at? Already can tell him in any the handed off to you okay I'm here for you, okay? Let's get into it. Hi, David Matt. I wanted to send in my first time. Slash Flesh, hunger, experience I do love that term so much by the way great soda, we. Despite being rather small conservative town, I came out in high school. Good on you. Being one becoming one of only two guys in the school who are openly gay after a very close call in which I nearly lost my virginity to a girl I realized that the relief I felt at her parents. Having come home was the answer I needed. In my long suffering. Am I gay debate. been there. like pretty much any American. School mind was stratified by cliques, typically claimed a specific territory as there's a learned early that befriending enough people in as many clicks as possible was a survival tactic that would allow me to get through my four years of high school, relatively unscathed tales. Tale as oldest time it also helped me ensure I always had the best scoops on the the school. Newspaper interesting is very naito to know. This is very andres argument. One morning I sat with some of my friends in a hallway that led from the cafeteria. Again will call Brad. Approaches US and nervously interrupts. He says hey. You're Mike Great. Can I talk to you privately? Matt, but you'd like to. I'll pick it up from there I thought it was strange, but I agreed and followed him outside to a remote area, hidden from view by a large PRA tube. Rinse in the wall. Don't would approach to prince is, but I can picture nego. What's up? I asked nervous about why he wanted so much privacy. I knew of him, but couldn't really say with any certainty that I knew him. Are You gay? He blurted out I was certain in that moment that I was going to get the shit beat out of me. He was easily much stronger than me. And we were outside of anyone who might end up passing by under pure coincidence, a nodded and brace myself instead of his fist. What can flying at my face was his lips. Pressed them to mind so fast. That I had no idea what to make of what was happening. I knew was that I had no idea how much one of those lips till they were touching my own by shock also left him an opening to French, so I ended up with his tongue in my mouth to French guessing not. The setup we were going to French class, but yeah, okay got it got it. Oh, okay, but I loved this. I wanted so much more, and I melted into every second of it I had never felt my heart thunder. The way it was doing in that moment there was no gravity. There was no school. There was no rough concrete, painfully pressing against my back and head out. There was only the line where our bodies pressed together. When the first bell rang, the kiss entered any gave me his number and asked me to call him after school. My friends waited on me to rejoin them and could see I was somewhat dazed. I only told them I'd have to explain everything later. It was the longest school day of my entire. Life Matthew. As it turns out. Brad lived walking distance from my house and he was a latchkey kid, and this meant that we often had to three unsupervised hours after school..

"benjamin" Discussed on First Class Fatherhood

"Today. Joining me now, first-class Class Father Benjamin. Watson, welcome to First-class Fatherhood. Man Thanks for having me. let's start right here. How many kids do you have? And how old are? Always on fatherhood we have seven children range from ages eleven down to identical twin boys that are about sixteen months, so we have eleven and ten year old girls, eight and seven year old boys, four year, old girl and identical twin boys that are like sixteen months, so we got a lot going on in the house. Credible, yeah! I got four kids myself and usually people look at me like I got four heads when I tell him that I. can only imagine what you get when you tell me yep seven we. We've heard it all. You know you guys have have TV and you. Know How that happens is like. Yes, we keep doing it. You know. Everybody has a small comment to make for sure what kind of. Sports activities are all the kids into. Right now, not much of anything with. Kobe my daughter, my oldest She does ballet's. She's been doing that for a long time. We've lived in several cities, but she always picks that up. So she's been doing that for years. My son, my oldest son, eight year old, has really in football He thinks he's a football player even though he hasn't really played it all. Kinda funny doesn't flag football. Mother daughters in a track. I mean we've got the gamut. The younger ones aren't into it as much yet, but you know I think they I think they will be at some point Bob. I just want them to. PLAY THEY WANNA play and I don't want them to feel an impression from me that after play they enjoy that that's the biggest thing. Not Feeling that they have to play, because daddy plays board. Because you know, everybody can go there and route. Yeah, I don't think one of the benefits. Today's the there's so many e. every sport has its own LE-. Give the kids a little taste of everything, and they could pick out pick and choose what they like. So I think that's pretty cool. Or you know it's important because you know quite honestly. We specialization now with a lot of parents do the temptation to do that. Really specialize at a early age. and. I think that it does benefit is to try a lot of different things. You never know what they're going to be good at. You. Never know what they. Will will try them. And you know and speaking with a lot of orthopedic doctors. They're starting to say that they see more more or the beating. Andrew's younger kids, which means that a lot of these kids are. Are you know getting overuse injuries that they really shouldn't be having at that age so not going outside and playing riding the bikes. Things good for my kids for now. Yeah well said if you could just take a second here to hit my listeners a little bit about your background and what you do. Look my background right now. Unemployed you know just playing a sixteen years of NFL football been married for fifteen years on Thursday actually July second. And that'll be fifteen years for us right now. kind of in a transition time of figuring out what's next. But about a father as I mentioned before for eleven years in really consider being A. Being husband my most important jobs. Yeah good stuff. And and so how old were you then Benjamin when you first became? A dad had to becoming a father kind of change your perspective on life. I daughter in two thousand nine. And I'm the oldest of six kids so i. Knew I never wanted to have six, so we just went from five to seven. We've and we never laid it on six and we want to have kids I met my wife at Georgia University of Georgia in College. We dated for several years and we always talked about having four kids. We got married waited. A few years started having kids when we had. We had four kids in literally four and a half years. And I knew I wanted to be a dad, but I was scared when we actually were pregnant with our first, and it changes your life. You know people talk about all the time. How who changed your life I think for me. Those obviously that sense of responsibility and responsibility of care of a baby or a family, but of understanding the role of. Influence that you have on the next generation, I mean it really is powerful a man. Thank you know when you sit in there. Holding your newborn child you're. You're looking in the face of places that you will never go to? Law Willing because they're gonNA outlast you. And how are you going to positively affect that child? What are you gonNA, teach him or her. What are you GonNa Pour into them. And! How are you going to do it? It can be very overwhelming, so I remember feeling overwhelmed. and I still feel that way in a different way now. But it really is a tremendous sense of joy as well because. These people look up to you and really need you. Yeah well, said I I couldn't agree more I. Love Being a Dad, and it's like especially I felt the same way first time becoming a dad, and then I felt felt that all them people that were telling me Oh. Just wait you just wait and then I felt like they were wrong. It was totally a great experience for me. Now I had three boys, and then we got girl on the fourth. Try this so otherwise. We may be catching up to you, but we got our girl on the fourth try. That's what I wanted. To ask my wife I was like look I. WanNa have four kids on a three boys and then little girl. I'm a blur. Take care of my little girl, and then I started off. You know two girls and I thought the world was indie. ended up number three hundred. Oh, I. Don't know if I should go for number three because I felt like as a guy wanted a boy, but now I tell you what. Got was favorable to us because he gave us those two girls I. because there is no way my boys will be able to handle and take care of the younger siblings in helpless the way our girls do seriously us. Oh I was proven wrong I'm glad that we had a first, but that's fine. Yes, exactly what I was hoping for the very beginning and you know what that helped us when we. We had our forth kid older.

Nobody knows about things because they're difficult to know about it. So I tried to become Benjamin Harrison expert for this very purpose and appeared in a documentary about him. But the trouble is like. There's not a lot to know about him but I still don't fully know most of it so they had like one line. I'd like I'd really into a custom windbreaker with Benjamin Harrison on it and I asked credited as Benjamin Harrison busiest appear to live. Yeah he was married. And that's it off but I have two things that I think are facts that I know about him. One of which is that he was twenty third. President actually three six three six. He was twenty two president Clinton and his family and he was called the pious moonlight dude when he went courting. And that's it that property investor protection. Okay that's GonNa Benjamin Harrison fact but yeah. I didn't know any of those things. So that's the log line. Now he's different from William Henry Harrison. The President I believe I believe Benjamin Harrison is the only president from Indiana Immune because we go to Indianapolis for for Gaming Convention every year? And there's unusual and there's an unusual amount of Benjamin Harrison sort of plaques and memorabilia so I've sort of extrapolated from that he's got to be the only if they had a better president than you'd see more middle.

"Benjamin dryer, thanks for being on the show. Thank you for having congratulations, on this book, dryers, English an utterly correct guy to clarity and style by Benjamin dryer copy chief of Random House. So it's very clever putting your own name in the title so that you get the name very, very large. Yes, it was that your intention when I first started working on a book, it had the title the last word, which my husband will, then simply my boyfriend. Now, my husband despised, he said, it's bossy and attack during, and I hate it, and you need to come up with a better title, so we sided make it more self aggrandizing. Exact. A friend, actually came up with the title. He said, while the title should be English. And I said, well, that's a little Spartan. He said, no, no, no, no, no. He said, because people will refer to it as dryers, English, like Strunk and white. And I thought, oh, that's very funny. And I made the joke in the office one too many times, and as we were getting closer to having to decide what the title of the book was going to be that became the title of the book, it's using other people forced it upon you. Yes, I oh, I moaned and I carried on. I know I just wanna book, I called it preached Custos. Maybe that'll be the next one. Exact this book has been tremendously successful. I think it's surprised when people not me what is this book this book, started out, as my desire, simply to share the weaponry that I had built up over the years as a copy chief and as a copy editor, and I thought it would be fun. And I thought it would be amusing. And, and basically, it was also about scratching an itch that had gone dormant. For decades, the want to write something, and then I fell back on the well. Right. What you know and what I know is copy editing. I started to work on it simply with the notion of sharing my tricks, and it just sort of kept expanding and it picked up little bits of memoir on little bits of just sort of meditation on the quality of pros. And, and it just assembled itself, and it assembled itself. It assembled itself. That's interesting. Yeah. Passive voice that are right in this context. I wasn't always running it. It just sort of happened it happened, and it took me very long time of a very consciously trying to get everything. Right. And of course, I'm always trying to get everything, right? I'm a copy editor, but at a certain point, I did a couple of years into the process, finally relax, so that I could sit down at the keyboard, revved up and just start typing and not be typing looking over my shoulder. All time explain to people what a copy editor does. Okay. A copy editor is the person who is handed a manuscript that its author, and it's, it's actual editor or it's editor, editor, as tentacle those people. They have decided after however many drafts they've been passing back and forth over however, many years that the manuscript is finished, and that's great. But once it's finished it needs to be copy, edited and copy, editing is a matter of doing the, the rudimentary things of making sure that everything is spelled correctly, making sure the subjects and the verbs agree apply. Basic grammar, where it's appropriate to apply basic grammar doing particularly for nonfiction, but for all kinds of books because all books have real world facts in them in so copy editors will spend some time doing their best to verify those facts are essentially, correct. It's not a deep nuclear level, fact check, but you're looking to make sure that things are correct, making sure that eighth avenue in Manhattan that somebody isn't driving south on it because they haven't north you have to be careful about that sort of thing, but you're also as a copy editor and, and this is where you're sort of taking it to the next level beyond simply making it technically better, your keeping an eye open for an author's overuse of pet words all authors have pet words. They'll have different pet words. What yours I found when I was recording the audio book for this, something that I hadn't noticed..

"The life of Benjamin Netanyahu has run parallel with the history of the country. He leads Israel's prime minister was born a year after the state was founded in nineteen forty eight. He served as a special forces commando in operations against Israel's enemies and as a soldier in one of the wars in which defended its very existence, his father was an activist for the creation of Israel. His elder brother is one of the country's most venerated heroes in the first episode of our summer series profiling four currently, crucial global leaders. We look at how Benjamin Netanyahu got to where he is and where he thinks he might still be going for better and for worse and opinions on which is which tend to be passionately held. He is the dominant figure of Multan Israeli politics Netanyahu has sought to cast Israel in his own image. Tough blunt, uncompromising to the point of belligerence determine that. No price is too high to pave Israel's security either. If this price has often ended up being paid by Israel's Palestinian neighbors. This is the foreign desk. He is a man who's public presentation views is very something. He believes all he's convinced himself that he believes in them and you and it's very difficult to catch him off guard in any moment. My hills say something that he hasn't really planned to say when express it thought which hasn't been carefully crafted. Even though he committed himself to the tour state solution, he seems to do everything possible to make it impossible. So from that point of view, he is definitely against the two state solution, which means that it's a one state solution, which means that it's either state that's choice, but not democratic or a bi-national state. There is a real caution that on a total lack of complacency around the existence of the state of Israel, he takes sense of for jalousie and volatility into his leadership. If Israel Middle East, however, things might look good. He is. Always looking for the danger that looks around the corner. Hello and welcome to the foreign desk. I'm Andrew Miller on today's show. We'll look at all sides of Benjamin Netanyahu's time at the top of Israel politics. But I sense of Netanyahu the man. I'm joined in the studio by ancho firfer, who writes for the economist and Herat's and is the author of the new biography BB the turbulent life and times of Benjamin Netanyahu and welcome to the program before we talk about Netanyahu's life. And the parallel corset has run to the life of the country. He leads both of which now more or less the same age I wanted to ask about Netanyahu as a human being. You've been a journalist in Israel for many years you you've met him many times. What sense do you actually get him as a person? So every politician you meet, there's a distance between the personal and the public image as politician who's on camera on record on message, and there's the man or the woman who you meet off the record who usually tend to be. Very different, say very different things when they can rely on you that you not quoting them that whatever they say won't be mentioned. Perhaps many years Netanyahu as the old man out in that sense, he's a politician who's very, very similar what he says. It's very similar the way he acts the way he presents his case is extremely similar, whether he's making a speech, whether he's in a television interview, whether he's on the record. And when you sit down with him for a briefing for an off the record chats, he says very similar things that there is headed that some minor differences, but he is a man who's presentation of public presentation of his us is very something. He believes in all, he's convinced himself that he believes in them and you and it's very difficult to catch him off guard in any moment when he's not. When you know when he'll say something that he hasn't really planned to say when he'll express thought which hasn't been carefully crafted. Does he struck? He was one of those politicians of destiny. One of those people who thinks that at some level himself and the state inseparable or indivisible that sort of, you know, Charles de Gaulle sham. The state the state is million so forth that actually encapsulates Antonio perfect Antonio has reached a stage where he sees his own fate and Israel's fate is being entwined..

We could find that out by bag in England. The culture, two weeks meeting was still trying to get Benjamin banished from the Quakers. Wow. So they've moved on. Case, they're not scorned or anything. They had made an official complaint to the Essex quarterly meeting. The cwm ruled Benjamin was not a proper member of the meeting and should not have been given a joint certificate to go to Philadelphia. But the CNN did not give two shits. They still sent a copy of the joint sniff, get to the Philadelphia women's meeting which have requested. Okay. So see is just like not playing ball? No. Fuck off a little section. CDW wanna Benjamin to suffer. They wrote a letter quote to friends in Philadelphia or elsewhere in America concerning the irregular certificate. Benjamin lay had from Colchester monthly meeting. They pushed Philadelphia to write and send their own letter to anywhere that Benjamin might settle down. Okay. So they're just like, this is an AP base AB scorched earth, right? This is like he's on the ten most FBI wanted list right quicker. Leased wanted list. Both of these. Both of the letters ended up in the hands of church leader, Robert Jordan, junior, a slave holder who fucking hated Benjamin well, March seventeenth, thirty four. The lays moved eight miles north to Abington. At this point, Benjamin was well known in Philadelphia quote, the name of the celebrated Christian philosopher was familiar to every man woman and nearly every child in Pennsylvania. His antics got attention and his protests written up in the press. He's making noise right. Delays built a home home, although from the scripture in that was in the Philadelphia Enquirer I can't imagine what they must try to keep it pretty meager. Not that great. Right quote, the still just sacks, oh, it's worse on the slope of the hill. He had his cave, what It it is. just as well as one for his wife, the roof of wick.

"Abominable practices. Domino practices, different. The plan was to read it out loud wherever Benjamin disrupted a meeting. So now they have a standard now they're, they're, they're could've combat his distracting by adding another voice of the distraction SME yells. They're going to read a thing about him. I'll read from a prepared statement that should I would read over Benjamin live with to speak. It's one of these meetings. They see a fish, you'll use it those back staff. No idea what he talks about. I will keep my hats on. On many thirteen seventy twenty four Benjamin spoke in the women's quarter in the great meeting houses. He misses douse firing a, yeah. That was it. The wwl fucking lost. Okay. Depict three Quakers quote to keep him out of Ye gallery for Ye future serious now Yanji. So he's so fucking annoying that he had gotten pacifist use physical force to keep him out. So he invented bouncers. He. In a backwards way. He really did. The c. TWA sent two members to try to talk it out with them, but Benjamin fees to talk to him and the December. He greed to have his case decided by friends as long as they were impartial about him and the issues. So friends who are impartial friends is what Quakers call each other. Okay. February, not twenty-five. Benjamin went before an eight-man committee. He was contrite and seem to really want to be readmitted and they refuse. Okay. So he went back to the d. h. m. with his hat in hand, so to speak, you wrote them a letter addressed to dear and loving friends. Okay. That was the highlight of the letter. He then went on to explain what the problems with the meetings were as human told by God and that he would have to point them out during meetings. Okay. So that's pretty okay. Not a great deal. And he ended with quote, I remain to your friends, your sincere, true and loving, although exercise and at times sorrowful and much of like brother, he petitioned for reinstatement to the d. h. m. m. said, no letter was fucking. Okay. He kept trying over the next year. And at one point, the d. h. m. wrote to the Wm saying if they'd forgive him the d. h. m. would to interesting. So this is like if mom says you can go, yeah, basically, but the Wm said, no, he was still keeping his hat on and yelling ministers, and he was now disrupting churches all over town, the in of the Presbyterians independence of Baptist amid there's really no problem with his with his the disown nature of his pundit, like it's not really stopping him from doing what he wants. Nothing. Okay. And may seventy twenty-six Benjamin wrote a long letter to the CT w. m. apologizing and saying he was wrong and weary and done with this nonsense in the was like, now we're good. Yeah. This needs a follow up letter. After that, there were no church records of Benjamin are Sarah for three and a half years. Now she's in good standing this whole time. She's like a minister like they love her. Okay. Then inventor seventy twenty nine Sarah to the amateurs out the were moving to Philadelphia and need Benjamin to be reinstated. So he could join a Quaker community in America. The DA asked the Wm for advice and they said, look, he's still paying the ass, but he was never a member of our meeting because you had already disowned him so he couldn't make him a member. So it's always been on you and it's really none of our business in the end. Okay. So now reinstate. So the w. m. meeting then found out Benjamin was trying to draw the c m, okay, which is the local little culture, right? Yeah, yeah. And now they're pissed. Okay. So he almost maybe had it, but then they found out about the now. He's like joining the rivals. Right. Right now, it's now he's fears yester- United against Manchester City situation shirt. So now they get involved even though he just said it was none of their business, right?
