"The city has taken down the statues of Columbus and confederates, but what about its name? The Catholic Church, which has a large presence in Saint. Louis knows the late King of France. As a pious follower of Saint Francis, of Assisi who invited the poor to his own table, he was known as the peace king for keeping France out of war. He introduced the presumption of innocence into the Royal. Justice system and he was brutally honest brutally. King Louis of France was not good for the Jews. His Royal Justice System condemned the Talmud and burned thousands of copies, nor was he good for Muslims I'm talking about the Crusades and the city has such a scarred history with native Americans and African Americans. But talk about a tough interfaith conversation. These are complicated decisions that do require conversation, abundant listening and patients, certainly not the qualities my Chabad table, but they are conversations worth having to figure out how to place history. No matter how ugly in the proper context, they also aren't decisions or conversations that happen overnight. It took centuries and a strong relationship with groups like. Like AJC for the Catholic Church to remove from its doctrine, the accusation of de Aside blaming Jews for the death of Jesus AJC has learned from experience that it takes time antitrust. The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice. I believe that is a Martin. Luther King junior quote well. Perhaps it's true of the Saint. Louis Arch to. And that's what we'll talk about at our Chaban table Sevi-. Manja Steve as it happens Steve Marsh about table talk. This week is about you through the years. Many members of my family have had the opportunity to know you and I feel truly blessed to have been able to call you my colleague for the past six years and I think I'll be reflecting on some of your work over Shebab dinner with my family. Family this week I. Heard you highlight some of the things that you have worked on tirelessly for nearly four decades at the risk of being reductionist and I hope in true Steve Beim Fashion Steve for those of you who don't know almost always speaks in neat three point presentations. I would say that these things boil down to three things the nature depth. Of Jewish identity the challenges young Jews face on campus and the relationship between Israel and diaspora Jewry working on these issues can be absolutely thankless. When you stake out a position in favour of strong Jewish eighties, you can be called elitist for condescending to those who don't already have one. When you work to improve the situation on college campuses, you'll be attacked for stifling free speech or Schilling for Israel. When you work to improve relations between Israel asper jewelry, you need to contend with Israelis who don't care much for the concerns of Aspirin Jews and with Aspirin Jews who don't care much for the concerns of Israelis as complex as. As fraught as these challenges may seem, they are in an infinitely better place today for Steve. Bam having worked on them..

"Is center. Leading right more conservative politics that's been going on for good number. Decades is particularly manifest in the current polarization within American society that we're going to see the next presidential election. It's already being bitterly contested, so that's the real divide within the Jewish community here in America. We have a second divide with respect Israel. Shoes generally support the chief rabbinate Israel and applaud its monopoly of matters of Jewish personal status such as conversion to Judaism. Who is a Jew Not Orthodox Jews not only find themselves some franchise by that monopoly, but for them and for I think Jewish history traditionally, the best outcome to mix marriage is conversion to Judaism of non-jewish spouse. We have to work to. It's encouraging of conversion. -sition particularly would say by Melissa. The late Rabbi Joseph Salvation Dean of Orthodoxy. However the standards of the chief rabbit is that one becomes Orthodox when it comes. Jewish, only one accepts the full observance of six hundred thirteen commandments something. The American Jews are not going to accept under any circumstances to be sure there are more liberal approaches to conversion, but the current prevalent approach embodied the Chief Rabbinate is who was Ju-. Only someone who converts in accordance with Orthodox standards, full observance of Jewish law. That creates enormous divide between the state of Israel with its monopoly of a personal status in the Chief Rabbinate an American Jews who are up coping with a real problem mix narrative conversion. It's best response. They look at Israel and say Israel doesn't recognize music Jew. Why should I be attached to Israel? I say this is the third elements lists of is going to be very evidence, namely should annexation lands on the West Bank proceed. American Jews given their own liberal tendencies. Finding accessions be something very off putting. Israel seems to be bent upon that course otherwise Timothy of it's still not certain the elements of fluidity, but should annexation precede. American Jews will find themselves deeply torn in terms their relationship to Israel. So basically thoughts for Chabad I don't claim to have the answers the best thing about my about tables that we leave questions unanswered areas. Stay that gives us a lot to think about and huge congratulations on your upcoming retirement and we hope to carry on. The work that you've done as well as you've done it. What a career to be proud of truly! You know I'm curious what you as a historian. We'll think of Asha about table topic. Because gentlemen at our about table, we will be talking about whether all history should be carved in stone of course I'm referring to the movements across the country to topple statues and monuments to confederate heroes and racists. Should the same standard be applied to anti-semites for example in the twin cities where police killed George Floyd. There is a monument to Charles Lindbergh on the lawn of the state capital and a bust of Lindbergh in his iconic aviator hat inside the Lindbergh terminal of the airport there. Lindberg who was decorated by the Nazis publicly blamed the Jewish race for dragging America into World War Two. And here in New York monuments, to Peter stuyvesant pepper New York. City, the bed Stuy neighborhood in Brooklyn, stuyvesant high school in Manhattan, but when Stuyvesant, the last governor of the Dutch settlement, which became New York finally allowed the quote unquote deceitful race. That's what he called juice to settle here permanently. He imposed fee. There was an excellent article in the forward recently by the incredibly talented Talia Zack's that explored a fascinating and Oh so complicated conversation in Saint Louis, Missouri..

"What are you going to be talking about? something. Thank you. This really is an exciting time for me. many ways bittersweet time namely the on the one hand it's been a fantastic ride with AJC for thirty eight years, and a lot of very mixed feelings about leaving on the other hand. I'm looking for with an anticipation who next chapter spending time with family friends grandchildren so in many ways it is. Time to reflect a bit and the time to look forward one issue that I've been grappling with in recent years. That I'm sort of leading unresolved in the ends of people like yourselves is. The ascending role of Orthodoxy in American Jewish life. This is taking place as we speak on different levels on the one hand orthodoxies experiencing demographic resurgence where Ted, percents of American Jewish adults Orthodox thirty five percents of children under age five. What does that mean looking till the next generation? The smallest movements has the largest number of children they will increasingly become the plurality, then will not be the majority, but they'll be the plurality within the American Jewish community. Then take a look at the second level, namely, many of them are willing to take an active role in Jewish public affairs, looking at the number of potential pool. If you will of Jewish communal activists, you're likely become not a plurality, but a majority of those sufficiently interested in concerned with tearing and ten, Ding to public challenges of the American Jewish community. Is that good or bad? On one in it means infusion of energies that we badly need on the other hand. We're going to have to grapple the reality that we have real divides within the Jewish community between Orthodox. Jews I was just you. Those divides take place on two different levels at a third quite imminent in other words. It's going to hit us very very very quickly. First level is that the political divide among American Jews most Americans Jews serving reform movements, their masks space inclines towards center, leading left Democratic Party liberal politics. The Mass Base of Orthodoxy.

"Anti-semitism drove all three of those attacks. In actuality, all three of those attacks should be understand has antisemitic crimes even though the victims right? The majority of victims weren't all Jews. The truth of the matters is that antisemitism has been the leading cause of violence by the White Nationalist Movement, and we don't understand anti Semitism enough to effectively respond right to this meredith that is being propagated by white nationalist by armed militia. Militia movements if we want to effectively deny these movements opportunities to of these hate, groups increase their own power. It means tackling anti Semitism has a sustained form of bigotry like racism is like Islamaphobia. It's like sexism minutes. It means denying oxygen to those who seek to tap into it so I often say I critique because I don't believe there is left wing Anti Semitism. Right Wing Anti Semitism.

"And most US live in segregated society right? Of where we live very few folks actually live in real multi racial settings meaning they are rarely engaging with other folks of collar as friends and colleagues. It's just not how most of our society works and that reinforces some perceptions that people have of black America that simply aren't true. In lead people to unconsciously believes right that black people are inferior in. In white people are superior, but it plays out in almost all of our interactions, and it's not just white folks who played that right? It's people of Color. It's black. Folks has well perceiving other black folks, so I think you know the answer to that is really one of diversity inclusion in our institutions right making sure that our staff our leadership reflect. The world as it is not the world that we proceeds are there specific kind of legal or forgive me structural challenges, though that make it hard to tackle white supremacist groups, so we think about white supremacy as a set of structures, right white nationalism is the social right. And and so let's talk about that social movement and and the structure of white supremacy, and how they interact with one another in ways that create danger for all of us so what we know from lots of studies, right folks can look at these studies. You can take them yourselves. We perceive black folks has more threatening just based off a visual concert. Right heart rates increase exiled goes up. It's not even conscious. It's kind of just a way. We've been sadly socialized in our society. So it is true right that law enforcement are predispositions. To See African Americans is more threatening just based off of visual contacts that has nothing to do with the conscious actions of an individual right has nothing to do with the racial background of that law enforcement officer. Then, the problem is is that it gets rewarded right further codifying that type of response, and then when bad things happen, it gets defended, and so then you get a structure that men continues to reinforce it south now. How does that system then interact with? Liz Social Movement. It is the fact that within law enforcement, not all right, but within law enforcement there is a culture that perceives white nationalists has less threatening us.

All thanks for inviting me now as someone on the front lines of the Civil Rights Movement today, the first thing I want to ask is how are you? How are you doing this really busy, really crazy time. I think like everyone else I'm exhausted. I'm carrying a lot of weight. A lot of responsibility I'm not alone in that we are moving fast soaks at the community level has really mobilized around civil rights, and you know it's a responsibility to support that leadership as much as possible I think I'm both nervous and. We are watching kind of in a way, the end of one age a period of time, and the beginning of another, and we're kind of in this inbetween points, and so it feels a little chaotic can. We don't know what's next I. Don't know about the rest of folks, but that brings anxiety to me, but also joy Reid I watch folks every day across communities across religions, really coming together, trying to find one another struggling with one another and I think that bodes well so mile this chapter. The book is not ending particularly well. I think it tells us the story fact will. Yeah. We're clearly in something of a moment. Right? Historically politically. We're in a moment and I guess the question for someone like you and for anyone who wants to kind of be a part of making this elastic changes. How can we take a moment and turn it into something that really changes our society, so you know at the macro level I like wow, you know we are actually finally poised to acknowledge that everyone in our society are fully actualize human beings. That may not seem like a really kind of radical thing, but it's taken a lot of centuries for us to get to this point and I'm actually really excited to be here, right? Having a strong democracy. Means having strong participation, that participation doesn't happen if we only consider part of our society as fully <hes> human so at the macro level. I feel like. Wow you know. We are getting close to getting this right. And after ten thousand years you know or forty thousand years I think we finally earned the right to that right, so I want to own that and I. Hope folks own map for a second, and if it makes you feel good, good I so now here's what we should do. Its APP, we should get serious about some very specific things so. Twentieth Century. Policing has come to an end. It is a system that no longer works for the inclusive democracy that we are, and it is time for a twenty first century version of it that is grounded in community, safety, right, and the prosperity of our community them I think that that is exciting and I think we should be encouraging those conversations. We should be continuing to encourage folks to be dialogue with one another I. An I'll just be playing, right? We can't be a society that seals. It is okay to shoot and kill unarmed. Black people in our society are quite frankly folks were unarmed and running away. It is just not becoming a democracy so i. you know I think policing as. As a policy conversation is a topic of the day it will be the topic of the year will be the topic of next year, and we should not allow the sacrifices of those at the community level been working on these issues over the last three weeks or the last three decades to go to waste right now. So that's one. The second is look. We have to get a hold of the mission oriented hate crimes, and what I mean by mission oriented I. Don't mean the average hate crime. We experienced. You know that the random hate crime those have to be tackled, too, but untuckit about this rise of mission oriented targeting of vulnerable communities and their institutions whether we're talking about Anti Semitism.

Despite virus, Pompeo in Israel to talk West Bank annexation
"Good morning a journey by secretary of state Mike Pompeii raises a question Pompey was in Israel to meet prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his new coalition partner Benny Gantz it's only Pompeii second trip abroad since the pandemic curtailed much travel so the question what is happening that made this trip essential NPR's Daniel Estrin joins us from Jerusalem Daniel good morning good morning Tim what's it like anyway when the secretary of state travels during a pandemic it's a lot of choreography to try to keep them in a bubble and this is visit is only six hours long Pompey was doctor is been checking the temperature of the staffers in the reporters on the plane one of those reporters said that many people wore masks on the plane but not all of them and Pompey was getting an exception from Israel's ban on foreign visitors no foreigners are allowed in Israel at all right now when he landed in Israel he was wearing a red white and blue face mask he then delivered remarks standing next to prime minister Netanyahu they stood about six feet away from each other they were not wearing masks but their advisors were and the US ambassador to Israel was not there at all because he has mild upper respiratory symptoms and even though he tested negative for the virus he's not meeting Pompeo just in case is it clear what made this trip so important that's the big question Steve you know why it's just not do it on zoom okay says there are issues he wanted to discuss face to face he mentioned a couple he mentioned keeping up the pressure on Iran Israel's successes in combating the corona virus he also alluded to China's connection to the virus all issues that maybe don't need a face to face meeting in the middle of a pandemic but there is one big topic that a lot of people here talking about that they could be seeking to coordinate on the two leaders and that is trump's Mideast peace plan here's what Pompeo said in a time now we'll get a chance to talk about the vision for peace for now some months on up from the day that you came to Washington with president trump announced that vision for peace when you were there there remains work yet to do and we need to make progress on that I'm looking forward to it and let's just be clear here trump's peace plan would have Israel expand its borders and annex every single Israeli settlements in the occupied west bank and and they tell me I want to do that as early as July what would the United States have to say about such a plan that is the other big question because there are mixed signals coming from the trump administration and from Israeli leaders on what exactly their positions are here I mean Pompeo says it's up to the Israelis decide on on whether to annex the Israelis say depends on U. S. approval but this is a very explosive issue most countries in the world oppose annexation and they want a Palestinian state to be created in the in the west bank instead and you know annexation would anger trump's Arab allies European countries are even considering sanctions on Israel if it annexes land you have that but then on the other hand the west bank is the land of the Bible and an annexation of that land would be very popular with trump's evangelical base especially in the run up to the November elections so I think the big question here is what does Israel want to do does it want to annex leaders here are divided on that the right wing Netanyahu seems to be pushing for it but his centrist partner Danny Gans it doesn't seem to be a Daniel very briefly some people who maybe don't follow the news every day out of Israel may hear you say prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and that they're asking wait a minute he's prime minister again he is for the last year and a half the time now was struggling to win a new term but now he and his election rival Danny guns have agreed to a deal that's on you know gets eighteen more months in

To Track Coronavirus, Israel Moves to Tap Secret Trove of Cellphone Data
"Brand so far Israel hasn't been hit as hard by the code nineteen outbreak as countries like China Italy or even neighboring Iran Israel's health ministry said today more than three hundred Israelis have tested positive but there have been no deaths so far Palestinians say they've diagnosed forty one people in the west bank and non in Gaza but Israel is still taking drastic steps to get a handle on this coronavirus they're tracking the movement of people who have tested positive including tapping into a secret cache of cell phone data and it might have been here to the US government is reportedly in talks with Facebook Google and other tech companies about using location data to track people with the disease and that's all raising big questions about privacy and government intrusion David how finger is the Jerusalem bureau chief for The New York Times and he joins us now hi how are you I'm good thank you so prime minister Netanyahu made this announcement last night what do you say yes so he he he what didn't get a whole lot of detail about what they're up to but basically you know it's an emergency Israel's broad emergency powers to do pretty much anything the government once more for as long as it wants and as we reported it turns out that since two thousand and two the secret the shin bet the the internal security agency has been routinely amassing pretty much every all the all the meta data on cellphones are belonging to all the the the major cell phone providers here it's it's been used it was intended to combat terrorism which is obviously an ongoing problem and you know it it it it's generally understood to have been used against the Palestinians but they've got all this data sitting in a big pile somewhere and the idea now is that they can take people who are known to be carriers or of the of the corona virus and go back to that truth of data figure out where they went I'm pretty hopefully pretty precisely and then cross matches against the the cellphone locations of the geo locations of other people to find you know people who cross paths in space and time with these people are known to be carrying the virus and then the ideas that they might send a text message to people who may have you know cross paths saying that you were in close proximity to sun sun so if some person carrying virus you should get yourself into quarantine there's a lot of problems with this as you can imagine just the invasion of privacy which is some technical issues I mean you know for one thing as I understand it's a lot easier to type to to to be clear on the precise location of a form when you're actually you know hacked into our monitoring that phone live then when you're going through archives to data that might not be quite as some precise but again what they're saying is that you know given the choice between narrowing down and and and having like a least a comprehensive path of some person to some you know if it's through some time knowing exactly where they went even if it's not even if it's not in point accurate is better than relying on people in interviews to say with total honesty and recall exactly where they were you know relying on honesty and candor but this is taking this can take a look I mean that this could involve a huge amount of people right so you can apparently have this virus and not even show symptoms and be walking around going to all sorts of places in Tel Aviv for example interacting with all sorts of people shopkeepers yes arriver that's true I mean one thing we don't know for example in New York Tel Aviv is a verb is a vertical city right you know I mean is this gonna be a point on a map well what if it's in a very tall building you know what if it comes close to a very tall building we we don't know how right the accuracy is and when you when you start multiplying that's about you know across a lot of people and whatever the error rate is you can have an enormous number of false positives to the point where you wonder whether it's really worth the effort I mean that's what one of things that people are saying here is you know why are they grasping at this quick you know techie fix when we could just put it be putting our energy and our money and our effort into a great you know more testing which is really going to get the bang for the Buck so there's a lot of issues at play what is the testing scenario right now in Israel it's better the United States it's not as as good as S. like South Korea I think it's something around four hundred people per million but you know which is way better than that states but they're still trying to get more and more people tested they're now talking about bringing around some kind of dries up queue for for testing in the coming days but it's you know it's not anywhere near anybody where where people want to be right well so get getting back to this idea of the geo locating is this something that they're actively doing or they're talking about doing have they already reach out to people who have who have had contact with you know they just authorize this overnight one of things people took issue with that was that was done at like one in the morning without legislative approval you know of course permission at Yahoo says you know every hour that we delay you know people can be dying so they're rushing to do it it is not clear how quickly they will be able to go about it and do you know people are trying to get them to get other you know the legislator approvals and is a democracy here this argument going on but the you know and the people are trying to do it the secret service and and the judge the Attorney General promised to do it within you know reasonable bounds and and you know not abusing their access to this information promising just destroyed in a timely way and so on but we don't know how quickly they can do it and we can you know a lot of this is very secret so we don't really know exactly what they're gonna do either yeah what will start to find out when they actually start sending some of those text messages right so meanwhile the country is in the midst of some political turmoil there's a power struggle between Netanyahu and Benny Gantz opposition leader is Benny Gantz coming out against us or is he in favor of it too and saying I want to put again that's that's that's an interesting thing I mean what what I was struck by to be honest after our story was published was how people work you know it's very unlike the United States people comes barely raised an eyebrow at the fact that the government had been collecting all this information about their cellphones for so many years it's like eighteen years you recall the uproar in the United States with the snow and but the Snowden affair so you know here really people you know are saying well we have to do it you know according to the right what was the right authorization in the right oversight if to make sure it's done you know appropriately and carefully and we're not gonna sweeping too many people up you know with one big net but really what I learned is that it is really have a the system has a really high degree of confidence in the in the shin bet their third total security agency they rely on them to to protect their safety to go after the bad guys in general that has been you know hunting down terror here it's a different scenario but they haven't really squandered the the the public's trust yet what people were saying to me is you know if I should ever really wanted to like abuse its power it could have done that years ago so they have they have a pretty high threshold of conscious before before this goes

"Hi there mark love then show call and now one seven three eight one three eight one one so the question is Bernie Sanders is the voice of and celebrated by some of the most poisonous Jew hating anti Semites in America I mean this and what he says says he's Jewish so what what does that have to do anything it's a funny way shown it never how many times I've told you if you hate America you hate Israel you might even hate Jews Bernie Sanders attracts these people Linda sars sewer Amir czar ta Leeb Omar who do you think Hamas is rooting for in America's presidential election Bernie Sanders they what Bernie Sanders why now here's what's amazing to me the head of this blue and white party in Israel this is a party that was concocted to trying take on Netanyahu it's a combination of disparate elements some will claim to the right of center left of center ultra liberal and Arab parties that don't even support the state of Israel while they wouldn't serve in the government they can still vote so there's Bernie Sanders and this guy dance Benny Gantz the leader of the blonde white party he has among his advisers to individuals who referred to the press in the United States in so many words as Adolf Hitler he has among his advisers the top poster for Obama other consultants for Obama so another words Benny Gantz is the Democrat party's candidate in Israel I am Benny Gantz today announced that he wants to mend ties with America's Democrats the Democrat party should he become prime minister he's accusing the current prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu a basically being way too close and supportive of Donald Trump I have tried to warn individuals in the trump administration individuals outside the trump administration on air privately every way I can that should Benny Gantz become the prime minister of Israel he will tap the brakes on the peace plan he will tap the brakes in other words he will slowly but surely sabotage it or so fundamentally altered a won't be the same there is no way Bernie Sanders will support the trump peace plan because his supporters the Jew hating anti semite circle that I began to describe to you other other supporters still but I'm talking about the ones have identified they wouldn't tolerate they've condemned this plan Bernie Sanders has condemned this plan Hamas Abbas they've condemned this plant the Arab league doesn't support the plan so Benny Gantz is going to be the Democrat party sky in Israel we also know this because the former ambassador to Israel from the United States an American by the name began Shapiro who now I believe is a resident in Israel he condemned the planet he said the Democrats will never buy and part of the reason the Democrats will do this is not only because they have this growing hate for the state of Israel now but it's also because they want to present a United States to fail he proposes is magnificent peace plan they choose to wait until after the Israeli election for there to be some annexation of to day in Samaria the Jordan Valley so forth which is a huge risk if Netanyahu doesn't win certainly huge rest for the people of Israel but it's a huge risk for the president because what will have been in Haiti a massive accomplishment could wind up being a massive setback because Benny Gantz it's not in his interests to work what trump and deliver him a peace plan a success he's already talking about making men's with the Democrats which Democrats this is just me speaking by the way I don't speak for the government don't speak for the master I don't speak for the prime minister I speak from mark as I always do but is it not fascinating to you that here we are well Bernie Sanders leading in the polls participating in multiple debates and not a single moderator has confronted him on the anti Semites that he uses a sorry gets and that he attracts and by the way if they do they're gonna have to be very very resolute because what he'll do is he'll start attacking trump Netanyahu in Israel that's not the point attack them all you want that's not the question you have Jake tapper whose Jewish your Chuck Todd is Jewish you're wolf Blitzer who's Jewish all of them about not opportunity all of to press to press Bernie Sanders and not one of them hatched if Donald Trump was a tracking people like this they be hounding him each and every day as it is the greatest friend of Israel's accused of anti semitism by these low lights and low lives but the Democrat party gets away with this Nancy Pelosi gets away with it with a phony resolution Chuck Schumer gets away with it why should why should that how is it the Bernie Sanders is not confront what about his typical Marxist distraction about his problems Netanyahu his problem is Netanyahu's racism apartheid policies his problem is trump and his racism and apart type no no no you will read Marxist throwback Soviet style moron we know who you are we know what you are Trotsky was Jewish to course Stalin wasn't Landon wasn't but my point is it's not good enough to say well of course I support is a because I'm Jewish unfortunately more more that has nothing to do with anything and I'm trying to explain that you know to non Jews look at these organizations the anti defamation league has the anti defamation league condemned the people that Bernie Sanders is using is Serra gets now once that I'm aware of why because the head of the anti defamation league was a special assistant to Barack Obama how about this far less radical group called Jay street which is an anti Israel Jewish group dressed up as a Jewish group the president of that organization was rubbing cheeks with a bus a week or so ago what they hate Netanyahu and condemned Netanyahu probably tell you more than you want to know but I think many of you will find it interesting Jews non Jews evangelical Christians non Christians and so forth what's taking place let me swing back Bernie Sanders how does he get away with this with the media allows him to get away with this these are Sir gets that he appoints these a server gets to hear braces their histories are well known there on the internet you can research them yourselves Sirius internet sites of expose them how does he get away with this virtually no scrutiny whatsoever as we move closer to super Tuesday which isn't very far away the American press is not informing the American people the Democrat party trying to tamp down information about him The New York Times which has its own anti semitism problem its own Holocaust denying problem has no problem Bernie Sanders in this regard none where are you Philip bump where are you Maggie Habermann well you reporters and journalists where are you Jeff mothers soccer an angel lack Zucker is Jewish he runs CNN lack sure she runs and be safe where are they I'll tell you where they are many years ago Norman Podhoretz wrote a book about this I had him on the program for these individuals their face he came to conclude and I think he's exactly right his liberal as their temple is the Democrat party that's who they are that's what they are first and foremost and I would argue the Jake tapper's the wolf Blitzer's the truck tots this is what they live and breathe Democrat party liberals this is what they pray to this is what they Donovan this is who they are this is how they self identify they're not about to take it to Bernie Sanders I'll be right back.

"For the prime minister for I ministership of Israel Benny Gantz was also there yeah I was very significant what we were trying to accomplish your Chris we're obviously in a never ending election cycle in Israel and based upon the polls I'm not sure that we're we're gonna get any closer to a government this time around so in order for us to move forward we really tried as best we could to depoliticize the president's vision for peace in the way to do that was to get the buy in from the two party the two candidates who one of whom will be the prime minister going forward and so it was very graphic very grateful that we got the support of Benny Gantz and for obviously from the prime minister because with that demonstrates is that essentially the with with some minor exceptions on the left or the on the far left or right the elected Israel's support this plan and that's important to us and I think his being there sent an important message what what's I understand what the the far left the poses in Israel a what does the far right oppose but I think there are is a a meaningful are part of the electorate that is just unable to come to grips with the possibility of a Palestinian state and by the way I I understand the skepticism and the fear but what we've crew what we've constructed here is a Palestinian state that cannot represent an incremental security threat is real because the security of the state the overriding security remains in the state of Israel but I think I think they're people that viscerally recoil from that and I think that's the reaction on now what about what was the reaction I I have not been able to discern this what is the reaction among the Arab states of the Middle East I think generally it's been terrific we had the ambassadors of the number it's Oman and Bahrain at the ceremony yesterday that's interesting that is very interesting you know are the Saudis are put out a very helpful statement in which they said that they believe the parties the Palestinians and Israelis should negotiate they appreciate the plan of action to go she based on this plan under the auspices of the United States the Egyptians called the plan a serious effort that should be the basis for negotiations the amber is put out I don't remember the exact words but the average put out I think maybe the strongest statement all these countries are not saying that these are the specific terms that we want the Palestinians to accept that I wanna be careful but I think this is the deal take it or leave it what they're saying is a lot of work went into this a lot of thought went into it there a lot of good things in it and they're encouraging the Palestinians to engage with Israel if they have issues and and and they want to make it better we said very simply the Palestinians don't like certain things that you sit down with Israel and discuss it there certainly not going to get anymore by holding a day of rage right but that that's that's the usual reaction what other than the Palestinians and I presume Hezbollah in Lebanon he in the Arab world or or in the Muslim world condemned the agreement I think the Iranians there yeah not only lets has Bologna is far as I can tell I don't think that I think the Jordanians were were critical on a big condemned it but they were critical but apart from the Jordanians now no one can doubt that many were very constructive I I didn't mention Morocco Morocco put out I think a very constructive statement so let's just you know kind of be clear about where we are today we have a specific offer from Israel that specific terms and the overwhelming majority of the Arab world the saying good job yeah may not be perfect but you know the party should engage on this basis I mean this is huge if people that Saudi Arabia they look at the world we live in Saudi Arabia the guardian of the Muslim holy places is amenable to this deal but the left in the United States Elizabeth Warren and The New York Times are not amenable to it I mean it gives you an idea of of how far the left in America has gone yep yep I mean you should read a statement it's really it's really quite remarkable an historic and yeah I mean it it's it's frustrating a by the way I think there's only one reason why a Whitey's part wireless with Warren and Sanders and whoever else are against it or against it because trump thought of it if if Obama would've thought of it they'll be hailing this is the greatest the advanced never has a greater truth been told I know you have to go with fifty after the hour I look forward to seeing you again ambassador Freeman thank you for your time thank you so much really enjoyed being with you thank you thank you Kim he was very impressive I I have no reason to say this I have a he didn't even give me a cigar I just for the record the meeting was after the meeting was at the new US embassy and the result was quite something fact that point the last point if if Barack Obama have come up with this deal it would be the deal of the century that is exactly the way it would have been called I have never I don't think I have ever use the term tongue trumped arrangements in rural never I it's not money some my way of speaking and I'm not using it now but there was clearly an irrationality that he is induced imitators but even it up in the past three to think in in rational moral terms I was in Israel until now constantly attacked by the left as not being for a two state solution here's a two state solution you don't like the state that is envisioned for the Palestinians then negotiate by the way they got a lot more and they rejected that to read David Brock's book it's a history of the of the seven I think six or seven rejections of Palestinian state since nineteen forty.

"T. welcome to weekend from the BBC world service with me Judea market. we start this hour in Israel where leaders of the major political parties will meet with the country's president today to make that case that they should be allowed to form a government results from last week's election in the country put Binyamin Netanyahu's party narrowly behind his rivals former general Benny Gantz but neither party won a majority of seats in the parliament and one of them is now convinced the president Reuven Rivlin that they have the support to lead a governing coalition this is the second time that Israelis have gone to the polls this year often no coalition came together after April's vote will no good time to pull skis a journalist in Jerusalem and is on the line no the one of the main cases that these two men will try to make to Israel's president today. good morning morning well. the first one to come will be Benny guns because he did in fact win the most votes although apparently just party representatives are coming in love he himself that's what I've been told and they will argue that they're the largest party instead of his role right now and that they have the best chance to form a coalition with an array of center left parties. the next one will be Benjamin Netanyahu who has been prime minister for ten years and I think we'll find himself in a very unfamiliar situation having come in second he will argue that he has the best chance with of kind of narrow group of right wing religious parties that still leaves him to us feet short of what the center left coalition has right now but neither has apparently from what we know neither as yet has houses of parliament in to support them what of the possibility of those two main parties coming together in some way. that is the ultimate question right now yes it works what would seem to make more sense if a party with thirty three votes of one with thirty one votes come together clearly they have more than sixty one together the problem is that abenney guns is number one campaign promises that he will never sit in a government with Benjamin Netanyahu who is on the verge of being invited to indicted sorry in several of pretty heavy criminal cases he's been investigated for something like two years by the police last February the Attorney General said he planned to indict him and since then it's in the whose lawyers have been playing a cat and mouse game trying to avoid this technicality to judicial hearing that comes before indictments that that hearing now is going to take place October second and Benny guns as part of a good governments. rafters policies has said he will never see it was someone indicted or about to be indicted so unless the Likud roasts its longtime leader the solution would seem to be impossible okay we will see what happens in the coming hours thank you very much no good time to poll ski whose the in Jerusalem. now they've been more clashes in Hong Kong between police and pro democracy demonstrators who've been staging the sixteenth consecutive weekend of protests the demonstrators who'd been demanding greater political autonomy from Beijing blocked roads and threw petrol bombs in the district of twin mon where police responded with tear gas the protest is then moved to you and long but police prevented them from reaching the train station where they planned to market two months since gangs of men attacked commuters and demonstrators returning from a mass rally will Steve McDonald is in Hong Kong lease of familiar scenes Stephen sadly but still very troubling ones. yes certainly there's still paid overhead to turn out and brightest day we went to both of those events you mentioned the the March eighteen Truman which was actually given the mission lex and other words that was an authorized.

I now have sought to destroy the trump presidency meanwhile Obama is never questioned. by during the debate she's never question because the media is never going to question bite about what he knew or when he know what about. the Obama administration's interference in the election the Obama administration interfered in our election. do you buy an administration interfered in an earlier Israeli election which they try to defeat unsuccessfully Benjamin Netanyahu. and Obama surrogate Sir again interfering in the Israeli election and trying to defeat. Netanyahu and I tried to explain of course to we the people in America as well as the Israelis get fox news. they don't vomit is the worst president. the worst president. not only for the United States. but it is conduct towards Israel at the United Nations. his support for the Palestinians and all the rest. and yeah here you have this guy Benny Gantz. who's getting the support from the Obama heights. now the press in Israel if you can believe this is worse than the press in America there's no fox news equivalent. it is rather snow conservative talk radio equivalent in Israel there's podcasters here and there but nothing that is as substantial as it is here this is why the first amendment is so important folks. then I went through the so called charge these allegations by a rogue Attorney General.
