I'm saying i was constantly on it. But but i think most of the guys were actually disconnected from wherever they were supposed to be fantastic is very powerful is very very powerful and you when you get guys that are like as you said very successful people just breaking down and getting a little emotional.

"Is missing before we run to celebrate like we're so grateful we should accept we should embrace we said educate but i think what's missing is and here's what we're gonna do. I was wrong. I used the term genocide. And i've drawn a straight line from my rhetoric to a spike five hundred percent in london antisemitic attacks and in america. Two hundred percents over. There's a straight line between my irresponsible language and that now now now the tweet that's it. We're all good now. You're a tweet. I shouldn't use hyperbole. We're all good or are you going to educate you're gonna contribute or you gonna go to not go to israel. Are you going to mandate pack. Are you going to meet with leaders on both sides. Understand the issues better now. Now what are you doing about it in order to earn our total favor. Wh you know isn't enough to just write a post or now. The proof is in the pudding kabbalah awesome. You gotta make a commitment to the future now. That is my question that is completely agree. Okay show i tried. I tried to stoke. The calls are gentleman. The hour is late. We still have several people with us and of course we always invite them to subscribe on youtube into re review. The podcast it's been climbing higher and higher. We've got great. i'll tell you. I always hesitate. My own family gives me push back like wise pathetic rate and review. We've had the most extraordinary guests. Forget any of great messages. Forget the three of us. Be gruesome the disco rabbis to listen to that. If you choose you have to listen to you. did you. The on the on the gaza egypt border. He's at the hive in the morning. You gotta you gotta listen to that. You gotta listen to eventually grandfather very living. You gotta listen next week's guest you've got to listen to the next week. Yes these are no miss. So if you're listening now we're preaching to the choir but tell the people not for us not for gobert brody and moskowitz but the guest tell them exactly what to skip to where they can get right to the guest but for the sake of people getting more exposed to hear these two year. These really people you know. When i went back to the jeff schwartz interview. I wanted to make sure that it was ritchie torres. He was talking about. I was like this was an amazing interview again. Not because of a jeff schwartz shared tremendous wisdom so if you rate in review and it climbs the ladder more people learn about it. Find out about it. Listen to it more. People are inspired by anything else. You want to close with going on in your lives going on in the community as we continue to grow very excited to announce that are schule is really back. Our community is back. We talked about that last week. In terms of shoes We consulted today and we hope within the next couple of weeks. We're going to be able to move to a mask optional. For all vaccinated unvaccinated children. Not nothing yet but when we hit the date after which anyone who wants to be fully vaccinated meeting two weeks after the second vaccine could be then at that point the burden shifts. So we're looking forward to be able to be a community that embraces all in that way and nothing definitive nothing conclusive hopefully. I won't regret even saying that right now but we are looking towards that and grateful for that opportunity..

"Flooded tell your friends tell your family tell your co workers. Tell your colleagues to flood the office with thank you notes. That would be amazing. We assume you alluded to earlier that we assume that we need to flood the offices of those who are not on our side and we do but we also can't take for granted and if we want people to remain on our side spokespeople then. We need to do that. So one thing. I would as don't forget to mention that you heard him on behind the bima. Ponce thank you so but he was. He was great. I'll tell you one other thing. I spoke to him earlier. Setting up the interview said you know anything you don't want us to ask and if you want to ask to avoid and it's a courtesy that we we try to offer. Don't tell the guests the questions we're going to ask but we wanted to be spontaneous but game. He said one thing he said one thing and i was working. Don't bring this up. Don't mention that he's just one thing he said i'm not going to. I'm not going to bash anybody. I will speak about ideas. I won't speak about people so if you think i'm going to come out and attack anybody. It's not going to happen. I don't do that so he he. Just an impressive person says it all of us. Impressive person yeah. That was that was impressive. So coming back. We're almost out of time. But i wanna come back to the conversation that we were having earlier with mark ruffalo so and again the israel anti-semites without saying that his apology is only because disney threatened to.

"With your time if we have a couple more minutes with you and to as you alluded to you as you referenced. The overflow the spill from anti zionism anti israel and the link. Now's the people who think that if the jews would just give israel then anti-semitism would disappear. I'm ashamed. I'm absolutely humiliated from the jewish public personalities. Who we've been tweeted some famous jewish celebrities who basically said we should distance from. Israel's jews have an existence outside of israel we don't have to be tied to or suffer the consequence of israel. So i thought it was really well said probably not not by somebody that you are a fan of but ben shapiro who who was also on our show and lives here in florida. Now he wrote today. If you think there would be less anti-semitism if israel didn't exist lend me your deferred let me refer to all of human history between one thirty six and nineteen forty eight in other words long before there was a state of israel for two millennia. Jews were targets of pogroms expulsions exiles systematic attempts to annihilate clearly. Anti-semitism is not the result of israel or occupation it is existed before and unfortunately sadly looks like it will always exist. So what do we do about it. We're having on this show tonight as well. Somebody who was a victim of anti-semitism. Joseph borgen who was in manhattan on his way to a pro israel rally. He was attacked by a gang. he was beaten pepper. Sprayed mace was in the hospital all because he was wearing a yarmulke a keeper because he's outwardly jewish so this spike of anti-semitism the bronx manhattan and around the country. We're seeing this explosion of it directly connected what we do. How do we tackle it. Had on how do we make sure that we confront all forms of hate anti-semitism included among them. Look we have an obligation to to fight extremism. the measure would former tastes. And you know there are publicans who always be against anti semitism from the left. The democrats only be against ancient sandwiches from the right. I got against anti semitism no matter. What for ticks including the backyard because integrity requires consistency Anyone who thinks that. There's no need for jewish date Is just utterly ignorant of history. There has been a pattern of violent and genocidal anti semitism. It has a long and deep an ugly history and we ignore it at our own payroll. It's not a theoretical coin or witnessing an outbreak domestic violence and the anti semite or.

"In history. And i'm committed to speaking out against and any chance that we can turn the squad around. Can we get some of your colleagues to succeed the truth more on this. Look what i would communicate to my colleagues. The objective should be to promote peace between the israelis and palestinians not incite hatred for israel. And and in my opinion you cannot incite hatred for israel without ultimately inciting hatred for the jewish. It's no coincidence. That the g legitimation campaign against israel which was amplified on twitter which was amplified back to this elected officials led to global wave of anti semitic violence and bamboos right anti zionism. Anti semitism are closely intertwined in the real world whether you admit or not Absolutely i'm just wondering unit for for certainly for the viewers out there that aren't so involved in political advocacy. Is it something where you know. How can we make some headway here. Is it better for you as a congressman to go and try to contact some of the people that might be against. Come with me to israel. Let me explain to you over the phone. What's really really taking place as someone who lives in florida. And we got these these alerts that came up from apec which apec has made it so easy to send a letter. Email even make phone calls to our local congressmen. I will go cosmonaut very supportive. And we already know that. We mentioned at the top of the the show congressman died. she's fantastic. I don't know that he needs another letter from us. Although it's always nice for obviously to see who's supporting with the the the initiatives that he's putting out there. But i'm wondering you know as a congressman. Does it make a difference to the policy. If i contact congress people that are not in my state not in my district. Do they care if you know. If if they're in another place. Can i actually have an impact on them is a better rely on you like how do you how do we on. The ground may try to create tried to create some some form of change. I i wanna point out the your congressman Is is is exceptional. I mean he's the gold standard of public service in his thoughtful. About the subject of israel in.

The biggest proponent of new york city. you can ask people who know my father's constantly telling me move to florida moved to florida. He's man he's not. Doing any will appreciate that yet. He loves florida to move. And i'm always one of these guys. It's an i love new york. I if i leave him back. But it's very disheartening. When forget the fact that these things take place but when after they place you can't even reach out to the victim and make sure they're okay. Just offer your your support and everything. It's very hurtful. Honestly it's it's actually. There's so many lessons from what you just said. First of all just pack it and again. Thank you for being with us. We loved one. Is you know when you when you describe. And i know congressman torres. Who were going to have on feels the same way but when you described after going through a terrible incident that when people reach out in the tax they call they get in touch.

"I've been aware of how things have been developing over the past year even the past recently in the past weeks so when i went to this rally i didn't i went to a rally two weeks ago. I think it was either tuesday or wednesday. Same location same spot. same tim. everything warm. I keep was meeting. My friends met them at the crowd. You know went there went back. I was there for two three hours. Nothing nothing major happen being in their base maybe some will try to run inside a fight but nothing. I mean nothing really happened. So when i had the opportunity to ten the second rally on thursday night i really bad and i put much thought into it. You know and think my i was endangering any way or any sort of threat relative to the previous week so you know i was doing the same thing in this time. He didn't even make it to the rally with block or two away in the midst of texting my friends. Who are you guys on me youth rally in etcetera really flag-draped over you carry also wasn't zionism exactly so that's kind of it kind of merges too. Because like i've said previously numerous interviews. I was just keep cuba. I was wearing the flag. I wasn't wearing israeli shirt The only way to really tell me apart from anyone else in the crowd in identify that i was different than i guess people in close proximity was my keep. That tells you everything that. That's a really really important insight. Exactly you know. Many people are seeing the spike of anti-semitism as anti israel would expect israel's an aggressor israel apartheid israel this israel that but what they don't understand is the opposite anti israel is anti-semitism and the go hand. Yeah yeah exactly you know for us to we had we had a rally last week. And and Think i would agree. Turn out and we were waving flags. And that's awesome van van. That went around in circles. Several times with a group of white supremacists neo nazis. Whatever but the entire vance said hitler was rise. Should killed all the jews yelling. The most you can go online and you can go online and see that in various places currently still to this day toes. Mohammed was trending. So you're walking. You're going there.

She'd be there early in the morning. She stay late at night. Tekken homeless at home with her like she would get the job done but when she wanted to have fun linda half. She knew how to make us laugh. She had to play along with joke with us. She does really part of the family and it was again. I'm in total denial. She's actually leaving. Yeah yeah so uh we appreciate your sponsorship generosity and what are we going to just with stories with word perfect. Is that danon officially retiring that as well. My favorite time with linda every year was that our event to raise money for our jewish education. Scholarship fund linda advice would enjoy a scotch and cigar together. So you know you want your your executive assistant who like you said. Work hard and care deeply and spiritual and but she also knew how to enjoy scotch and vice so that was kinda cool added very cool and still. She said she's coming back every winter to visit. So we'll get that opportunity. We'll keep that going. We have a lot of very significant. Scary topic. talk about tonight. As we say is still the forefront of our minds the rise of anti-semitism and joey's personal experience which we're going to hear more about But i'll tell you as much as we're tempted to believe that the world is turning on us and and we'll speak to both our guest tonight about that. The propaganda war the social media war. What's been going on early on the ground in israel and from the sky but what's been going on online and on the internet and all of that but you know sometimes we can lose perspective. Yes adele reported that anti semitic acts were up by some absurd percentage and yes there are not only enemies of israel that online are saying vile things but even jewish celebrities prominent people saying shameful things but israel or or even about being jews but i had several experiences that reminded me that the majority of people are decent. And they're good and they get it. I went on sunday. Flew to a wedding and ten minutes before we landed the person sitting next to me. I sometimes try not to look so jewish but it's hard to pull sitting next to me i. I don't know what gave it away my ugium ago beard anyway but ten minutes before landing he turns to me and he says says i'm not jewish but i've been following everything going on about israel but i don't believe their version. Tell me what the real story is. So i'd give him a modern history lesson about israel from nineteen forty eight to the present everything you know. The forty war of independence the six day kipper war the pulling back from gaza thousand five the rockets hamas bowl everything and by the end he he was basically. Yeah i totally get it. It's terrible nobody would stand for that. The rockets thinking about you're praying for israel and it was so heartwarming. There's one story today. Which is its own right. I had a meeting east boca. And i made the terrible mistake of saying to my family. I'm near trader. Joe's does anyone need any That was a big mistake needed. Gps to navigate my way around trader joe's and to figure out the half share among these products products and then i lost in exploring like sauce.

Soft Power 2020
"Am joined today on special soft power program by mongols foreign editor megan gibson monocle culture editor kiara ramallah and monocle twenty four culture correspondent and eurovision desk chief. Fernando augusto up. We have a lot to cover in analyzing who made l. top ten this year and who didn't but we should talk about first of all meghan. What an unusual year for calibrating soft power. This was because of course it was like every country on earth given the same test it was like he is a pandemic deal revert. And see what it says about you. As a nation did it make a difference on how countries will seen by the rest of the world and soft power terms. It absolutely did like you said every country was dealing pretty much the same set of problems but just as internally the pandemic kind of shed light on where countries weren't up to snuff and where there's certain systems were lacking or the social welfare net was not working so too did a show which countries were really relying on kind of coasting approach to diplomacy and soft power. Every country had to turn inward in some respect. You had to face an economy. Crunch you had to face a healthcare crisis but a lot of countries still managed to think about diplomacy and what. They're projecting abroad and to other countries and global cooperation. And that is something. I think that kind of threw up some surprises when we actually looked at the year in terms of soft power some countries that have never made our list before immediately caught our eye. Well let's talk about that. We'll come back a bit later to how different countries responded to the covid nineteen crisis. But let's look first of all at our top ten and meghan all ask you again. You were talking about surprise entries in the top ten. Who is there. The see that hasn't been before i think the first one. I'm going to go to taiwan. And i should say we've done top ten this year. Usually we do top twenty five. We quickly realized that there weren't twenty five countries. That actually made that good impression on the world. I would say this year. A peace prize in the nineteen forties. Exactly we cut it down to ten and picked the ten countries that did something notable on the world stage and taiwan absolutely one of them from their stellar leadership in actually handling the virus. Which i mean has seen the country. Even today has had quite a minimal effect. On at the helm of its citizens numbers have been tiny and given their proximity to china. Remarkable for that. That's just been something that they've really been able to step up and show that they've had good leadership and for such a tiny country and a country that has been long grappling with a very antagonistic neighbor. That's been really impressive. And i think we've also could look at another country that has made our list consistently but also small and has done really well with the pandemic and that's new zealand new zealand again a beneficiary of its leadership and of its leader. Another factor we will come back to later in the show. I wanted to bring you in now. Kiara refu- look at the top ten. Were there any entries in there that left out at you. It's difficult for me to look at this without my cultural hat on. Because i do think that cultural exports make up so much of a country soft power their own way. You know if you do have a tv hit. That really can change. The international perspective of people have on your country in the issue. We have profile of borgen. The danish show which kind of guess kicked off almost a huge facination with scanning wa. I'm happy that south korea is in the fair number and i were discussing. Grammy results on are getting their first ever kind of major grammy nomination. I mean that is huge because the grammys are essentially a us kind of awards ceremony. Yes of course it has one global subcategory but it's largely. Us fakest for a korean bond to be nominated as part of that really means that they have become not only a korean band moore global bond and that radius testament to the power of capes. I think south korea has really well deserved second-place cultural reasons but also for all the other reasons dr megan was discussing. It's very interesting. Also you you know you mentioned new zealand as well and perhaps it's a very niche reason to be very well known abroad but i do think that new zealand has got an increasing amount of really interesting. Musical acts that are genuinely world class. I'm talking the likes of zuma. Alice harding benet talking. Broods mullen williams all quite indie acts but in the the community which is very dedicated. Genuinely these are kind of agenda setting also around the world. So i think it's really interesting. That a tiny nation can produce a really interesting side of the musical experimentation side of things obviously around this table. Four nations are represented all nations with instantly recognizable and widely understood national brands. And that's my nation of australia. Kiara of italy fernando's of brazil megan's of canada which i notice is the only one in the top ten. This whole thing is just the most shameless stitch-up so fernando to bring you in brazil a country with a powerful national brand and yet you are not in the top ten this year. Do you feel especially put out by that is. Is there a case you would like to make well. No no no not not in two thousand twenty eight gave you the big buildings builder. People would be surprised by me. Because i always a believer brazilian. I'm very proud of being resilient. And i am still an and we do have an amazing opportunity to be one of the best countries in soft power so perhaps in a few years will be there the top of the list but honestly i mean this year has been terrible for brazil president. He's an isolationist. he's not handling very well. The situation in the rain forest which matters a lot for the outside world. Perhaps those of us who enjoy breathing so exactly. But i mean it. It is an issue in brazil. but i notice. We've all my friends when they say. Oh how during forest the amazon. Your president doesn't care. And of course his declaration sometimes every day he said something quite offensive to specific groups. And it's funny. I was trying to say i mean. What is brazil doing. well now we. We are student load of great things but even at football you have. Our biggest star neymar liked by some. But he's but even in brazil. Laura people don't like neymar like perhaps some aspects of his personality. So then i think even football. We're not so well liked turfing. We need to improve. I am an optimistic. I think things will change but two thousand twenty is yeah. I agree it. It's not the year of brazil. And i do think this year has been a blip for a lot of countries and as i was saying you know cultural experts from italy. Obviously still very strong italian food still eating around the world unloved around the world especially on this table but this year it was all about the countries that had cut through and what the cut through was what the stories that were resonating around. The world like fernandez. The amazon is what people were thinking about. When they thought about brazil they were not thinking of amazing beaches. Or you know wonderful culture and things like that it was the bad headlines that were really being projected around the world just finally in this first part of the show. I am going to rise heroically above complaining too much about the struggles exclusion in favor of new zealand. And just let these self evident absurdity of that speak for itself but meghan there couple of other countries which again have shoes soft power in princeton fact arguably the countries with the to hugest soft power imprint i e the united kingdom and the united states neither of the mike it and is that just about covid nineteen and all the people who happened to be leading them at the moment. It is definitely down to leadership. Soft power is usually something that is built up over years and decades so usually it can survive a bad year it can survive a wrong thinking government but in the case of the uk and definitely the us. It's not that. Diplomacy was neglected in the last few years. I mean we've seen a lot of policies that have been actually hostile to global cooperation. And i think a lot of people's perceptions of those countries have really shifted especially when it comes to the us under donald trump.

Tensions Overshadow NATO Meeting Intended as Show of Unity
"Start start with the ongoing NATO summit here in the UK it is meant to mark the seventieth anniversary of the military alliance bought. Disagreements have threatened to who over shadow celebration Robert. The summit began yesterday with us. President Donald Trump's attack on French president Mo mccraw as micro had earlier called NATO brain debt. What did you make a fuss? Well trump absolutely played to His his his absolute he. He was big completely consistent in that he likes strong men who he thinks like him and and he hates rivals. That's the crudity of it but I'm macron has come in for something of a beating not only for trump but also from the German leadership suggesting somehow the could be a displacement or replacement or winding down in Europe European security of NATO building up the defense component payment of the European Union e. e. d. u. and the other things that are which which Germany is not prepared to accept. It's not prepared to accept by the way also the NATO. I told him that they go up. Two percent of GDP. They say ten twelve years off that by the way if they were to do it tomorrow. That'd be the third military power in the world but the engagement with Russia is really terribly. Terribly important McCall the Italians particularly to say we must engage h with Russia You know that despite everything. It's a pity that the the the the NATO arrangements have really gone into neglect. The and this has enraged. Of course the new eastern part but cotton us of of NATO. There is real substance to this route. But I don't want to take cap the conversation dominated but actually there is more to macron's argument than the he's been given credit for. Let's talk about Russia moments bus but Carol s Robert mentioned our there are big questions now weaving the NATO over the future of the alliance over money also over Turkey's behavior do you think the summit in the UK. We'll find any solutions. I think this summit will be an attempt to paper over the cracks. I think they want to try and put on a show of unity. We've had the British prime. I'm Minister Boris Johnson. Arriving saying that it is one for all all for Juan and Jens Stoltenberg secretary general saying it's the most successful swill alliance in history because we've changed. The world has changed but I think the problem is that it hasn't sufficiently adapted to the changing attitudes. It's a some of its key players. that comment from President mccraw about NATO being brain dead was because he's looking at NATO which is after all a political as well as a military alliance you have now got in the American president trump. Someone who has questioned America's engagement in the alliance in the past that he's now saying he's committed a to it you have had Turkey which didn't even consult key NATO allies before waded into Syria. And what you've got now. Is this alliance that was constructed to join the the end to try and confront the Soviet bloc during the Cold War which hasn't hasn't really worked out what it strategic purpose is now and although there's a lot of talk now about what the attitude to will be with China but it will be towards sabree threats and so on it hasn't really worked out a new overall strategic direction and I think that's what President Macron was referring to so robots looking looking at this strategy and what NATO's functioning at the moment is there any agreement between the states member states over who or what is the the biggest threat at the moment is it is terrorism or what. Now this is This is high theology which has been around. I was at the think-tank forum-goer I'm Greg Cote engagement NATO. Yes Day and it was very interesting by the way how was generation split that a lot of young people. They had a lot of the debates. Only open people speaking from the floor if they are under thirty five sons a bit mad bit work but it was terrific. It was terribly important and you saw really. What a fundamental difference was? This is an an enormous area of debate. And you're absolutely right in your question and I'm going to illustrate it. Only with one anecdote with three prime ministers in succession on the stage together together with Justin Trudeau and marketer of the Netherlands are absolutely accomplished uric euro performer Ruta. But before him it was the extraordinary absolutely straight out of Borgen Earner Solberg of Norway. NSO book was asked to consider the whole scenario Korea. Russia the works they know about what is your greatest strategic threat. The melting of the Ice Cap Justin Trudeau was hopeless. He was absolutely his mother. The Sun was Apple Pie and hugging trees. Where really were ready for piece? Actually in fact he did down what the Canadians have been doing in Syria left Galveston than Don don good fighters most intriguing was Huta. You thought he would be the most accomplished God talk about a snake oil salesman. He would not put what his hand up for anything. Not even a commitment for about the second or third richest country in the EU a NATO putting its hind in its pocket to go to two few percent of GDP. He said No. We're not going to do it so that tells you where we are. There is a fractured leadership on generation. Lines absolutely what. Carol Carol said it. It's going to hold together for the time being but to come back to macron Laura detail in all seriousness. He did awesome very important questions because the foundation is a union of Democracies and Turkey. Certainly doesn't look much like a democracy to most of the allies now. Let's look at the dynamics between the NATO elitist. There's a newly released video that seems to show Justin Trudeau. Boris Johnson. Emily mccraw Make Fun of Donald Trump. Are they ganging up on him. Will it was some wonderful footage. which any of our listeners could probably find fairly easily with a a quick search on the Internet of them the reception at Buckingham Palace and they do seem to be poking fun at trump for waiting in with his own little impromptu news conference yesterday? I think we shouldn't shouldn't make too much of that specific incident but I think that what he does is show this This real concern that there is is on the suspicion of where from really is on this We know that he doesn't really like these. Multilateral organizations we know that he's he's been hugely critical of in particular many of the European members of NATO not putting sufficient funds and sufficient resources into the NATO part. He's been very critical of that. He seems so far on this trip to have been on his best behavior. Trying going to say that trying to stay out of the UK election which is something that the conservatives who are battling away with polling day just a week or so away now he he pulled back from waiting too much into the election campaign he has kept his comments. Pretty supportive of NATO. But I think when you saw that little Vignette of the other world leaders apparently mocking trump underlying that is all these big doubts about whether trump's halt halt really still is in the NATO alliance you're a detachment didn't become with trump Obama hugely popular in Europe with far more eurosceptic. Almost the for P people around trump. I think it's terribly healthy. That McCall and Boris and Justin Trudeau chatting away. They all mate actually the the the interesting intelligent womb people. And that's a great thing. It's great for my country Britain. Whatever you say about Boris and I know him well he does engage? They like talking to him and he was having a sip of champagne even though he'd promised he wasn't going to touch a drop of drink until brexit assault. It just just finally before we move on. Obviously we have to talk about how trump's visit is reflected in the UK politics right before general elections. So so Carrie. What is interesting is that we haven't seen that many photos of trump and Johnson together this time for example? Have we know extraordinary. The lengths to which Downing Street has gone to to try to prevent photos of President trump and Boris Johnson. buddying up together and when you think about previous visits of. US The president's it is really quite extraordinary but the backdrop to this is that Boris Johnson's opponent Jeremy Corbyn one of the central themes of his attack on the Conservatives is that we're going to get a trump style US UK trade deal if the Conservatives win on that will push up drugs prices in the National Health Service and it's going to cost us all hundreds of millions of pounds every every week now the conservatives have flatly denied that they flatly denied the NHS will be affected in any future trade deal. But the problem is that in the the UK trump is not exactly a popular figure. And I think the conservatives who are ahead in the polls at the moment no that if Boris is seen to be using using up too much to his old friend Donald that is not gonNA play well with the British Electric. And that's why even though they did meet in Downing Street last night there were no pitches the two of them together.

How The Danske Bank Money Laundering Scheme Involving 230 Billion Unraveled
"Money laundering is the way clever crooks hide individually spend all the money they've stolen in this tale about what's believed to be the biggest money laundering scheme in history. It involves nearly a quarter of a trillion dollars a very suspicious money from Russia and the former Soviet Union that was funneled into the western banking system, right, under the noses of major banks and regulators in the United States in Europe, who either facilitated it or turned a blind eye at the heart of it is a whistle blower, who found one loose thread in decided to pull on it. Howard Wilkinson is an Oxford man, cautious prudent and a bit of a stickler after his cover was blown last fall in a newspaper article is the person who uncovered the scandal he has spent much of his time wandering the British countryside. Trying not to be found. A whistle blower in a case involving two Russian money. It's not a good place to be you're still concerned, you've got to the very nature of the people who want to learn the money, probably means that not the so you want to go down the pub and have a pint with, but he did sit down with us and told his tale about a financial crime. So big it's hard to fathom and number that's reported for the whole thing over the six or seven years is two hundred and thirty million dollars of suspicious, money one Bank one Bank, two hundred and fifty branch branch Wilkinson had worked. There is a mid level executive for dansko back the biggest financial institution in Denmark, and one of the most respectable banks in Europe is head of markets for the Baltics. He worked out of a branch into Lynn Estonia, the former Soviet Republic now a NATO member right next door to the Russian bear. There were Cancian's, but also business. -tunities in Wilkinson, eventually discovered his branches. Biggest business was converting Russian rubles of highly questionable origin in the Chris clean on traceable American dollars customers will be calling every morning fleas. I want to sell twenty million rubles by Dulles. We would quote them the price that they would get the Dulles Doulos. basically, that was that was the last part of what we did. And there was nothing legal about that. Frank supposed to check the money coming in. Is it clean on the Bank supposed to check what does the money go in the end and you're saying it wasn't being done? Evidently, it wasn't being done. That's an example liberty understatement. International money, laundering laws require that banks know their customers and report suspicious transactions to thorns yet suspicious. Transactions would turn out to be the vast majority of the business in the banks non-resident portfolio, which was made up of clients from Russia as her by John and other. Former Soviet states, a lot of this money came into the Bank was out the door the next day, right? The next day or you think it was that slow. The customers would every everyday they would sell rubles dollas in that would be what we'd say we didn't, we didn't see where the money went, so your businesses really execute the traits, basically. The clients absolutely, not, not the clients job Wilkinson was assured was being done by a special committee that carefully screened, all international customers before they were allowed to open an account. He discovered otherwise almost by accident when a colleague asked him to help with some paperwork on one of the banks. Big customers, a British company called Lantana trade L, L P to me being British the face place to look for financial information about companies, the public register public apparently this was rocket science. This is rookie science and I wanted to have to pass it. Wilkinson consulted a British government website known as companies have paid while pound one dollars thirty. The company's financial statements and it was a bit strange because it said that the company was Dolman not Dolman means the company hasn't done a single transaction. He knew that couldn't have been right. Having looked Atlanta's banks tape how much Lantana money was passing through the back up to twenty million day, twenty million a day sometimes not exactly dormant is not to the public documents raised other suspicions, when panacea to be a British company in name, only with the postal address it an unremarkable office building in north London that it shared with at least sixty four other show companies with accounted dansko Bank, Estonia and connections to remote exotic places known for banking secrecy in money laundering. So we've got a UK company with a registered office in north London with an accountant, Estonian, Bank, actually, on by Russians and the, the onus of. From the Seychelles, and the mosh alliance to Wilkinson it screamed money, laundering, he explained what he found the people at the Bank, who handled the Russian accounts and was told that it was a simple paperwork. Screw up that would be fixed. Thirteen months later, he heard that Lantana had been told the take its banking business. Elsewhere, among the concerns was money laundering by a member of the Putin family sanctity, Mr. eagle Putin. Who's I think the cousin of the Russian president that are links to the FSP? The FSBA is, I think the success of KGB's some sort of secret police the people running the company have been associated with several banks going bust in Russia and absecon Tim stance. stances eager Putin, the president's first cousin is been associated with other Russian money laundering schemes, but as always professed his innocence, the Howard, Wilkinson hearing, the Putin name was further confirmation that something was wrong to do that. This needs to go to copay in this need to go to that head office. So I made a whistle blowing reports to full, very senior executives including one of the executive board whistle blogger, Paul about what's happened. What seems to be real concerned that others at the Bank might be involved in a cover-up Wilkinson decided to look into three more of the thanks customers that were registered in Britain up three pounds on, I took they counts for these next three and they will false your four for four full. Is it possible that people just could have missed this? Well, then went sixteen sixteen by looking at twelve so of which fifteen with the same address. So, yeah. Some point is stocks being possible to coincidence, not just with the account. So folks, they counsel basically look the same just change a couple of numbers where they will basically look the same when you started doing all this, what did people say to you at the back, nothing nothing? Exactly nothing. People stop calling around to say, is it true that a high ranking executive at the Bank told you, quote. The spank is not the police, the Bank has no obligation to report false clients accounts to the authorities. So frustrated with the lack of action Wilkinson resigned and took his family back to Britain. It would take nearly five years for dansko Bank to come up with answers after printing from the Scandinavian in European press after reviewing more than six thousand non-resident accounts, it, acknowledged that news conference last fall, that it's tiny Estonian branch was the gateway for what may be the largest money laundering case in history. I'd only scratched the surface, however, huge numbers saying to me back in twenty thirteen back in twenty fourteen unbelievably, I just scratched the surface of actually going on in the pike. Do you have any idea what percentage of that money was dirty? They said the almost all the customers was suspicious so far at least eighteen former dansko Bank employees are facing charges in the case including. Former CEO Thomas Borgen in his chief financial officer, the Bank itself faces four counts of violating the Danish anti money laundering, at Danske Bank itself, admits to a complete breakdown of every single internal control. This isn't one or two mistakes. This is a mistake of their entire system over years of which they profited, immensely, attorney Stephen Cohn, who has been representing whistle blowers for more than thirty years. And is Howard Wilkinson's lawyer says dansko Bank is not the only one that's profited from the scheme. Most of the two hundred thirty billion dollars pass through big, New York banks undetected for years. What does that sheer number two hundred thirty billion dollars? Tell you, we'll first off, it's almost impossible, but your hands around you dealing with major financial institutions, worldwide, who are complicit. When you sit complicit what do you mean? The. Moment. You're doing money laundering, and large amounts of money, billions, hundreds of
