I think tolerance of jew hate when we first met two years ago thinking because before that time you know. I've been conditioned i think in growing up in the uk in school where they're only three jewish kids to tolerate the what they call politely banter works erm you would call anti semitism and it did overstretched itself from time to time and i think that is a sort of shall we say looking for a better word but would have jimmy cued.

That are not going to be selected you know in a volume label for example district. Tina zero willing to say it was piping to see that one of the most disturbing rates. I think of british antisemitism and this might go around the world as well is. There is a sort of dog whistle so that someone can maintain that they're not anti semitic so someone who is an influence on me. Extreme left and concise something assiduously continuously hard left without. Referencing jews but then. His followers commend dog whistle a really serious anti semitic sort of betrayal of what they think themselves. I'm using an example of a very powerful voice. Which is john bishop.

Caricatures published by the weekly Shali Abdul back in two thousand fifteen and that triggered deadly attacks on the satirical newspapers headquarters. At the time those characters were then republished by Shali Abdul to coincide with the trial of the accomplices in that two thousand, fifteen attack. This is in fact, the second terror related incident since that trial began because last month a man armed with meat cleaver tried to storm. What he thought was still Shalhoub does headquarters in Paris and two injured two people in what was a botched attack.

What is Russia really doing in Libya?
"During the twenty years that Vladimir Putin has presided over Russia it is fair to say that the acquisition of a Nobel prize for peace has seemed low on his list of priorities on Putin's watch. Russia has attacked Chechnya invaded Georgia Georgia and Ukraine and intervene in Syria to say nothing of lower level semi deniable operations. Where in Libya would have had reason to regard? Russia's offered to serve as a mediator in its ongoing civil war with an amount of suspicion and Libya might also have recognized however that the Western world has long preferred to regard the Libyan conflict from the other end of a barge pole and that as such they were somewhat stock options accordingly earlier this week the two sides in Libya's war.

We're talking about it today because a court there has sentenced Chechen human rights activists or you have to four years. In a penal colony for possessing get this a bag of weed. Rachel Denver is based in Moscow with Human Rights Watch. She's deputy director of the European central Asia division. Let's start with a man who is he.

Attention secret executions against people by local authorities, and he was kind of like less, man. Stan. Right. And have does is work in Chechnya. What does the political backdrop in Chechnya for the work? He's been up to for the past ten years. The governor of Chechnya Rams on Qadeer has had pretty much free. Rein to silence dissent. Any kind of non-conformism to silence any kind of criticism of his rule and the deeper backdrop is that he became governor. After two brutal wars that took place in Chechnya in the ninety s so too has been sentenced to four years. In a penal colony for possession of marijuana you're in Chechnya for the closing arguments of his trial. What was the evidence against him the evidence against him included some tainted very tainted evidence bag of marijuana. The police very clearly obviously planted in his car.

It was magically founded his car and the time that it arrives for forensic analysis one of the bags. It was in with missing scotch tape magically appeared on it and magically had his hair underneath that. It's obvious. Also because all the cameras the security cameras at on the territory of the Senate. Of the police station were magically disabled between nine AM and one PM on the day that he was arrested, and that's actually a Kitaen because of the defense theory of the case, which would have been supported if there had been thrillers tapes, magically, they all went missing in terms of judicial process there were some questionable things in the trial. Yes, I think the most questionable thing of the trial was the judge dismissed just about every single defense motion that questioned the validity of the state's evidence against him and dismissed every defense almost every defense notion that would have shown why is innocent did to have a lawyer who was genuinely able to represent him the team of lawyers to t- of had in court was a terrific team of lawyers. The problem is that the seven hours after his arrest. He had no access to a lawyer because he was being kept at the police station secretly the police denied that. He was at the police station. We want a lawyer showed up to defend him. The police told him to go away. Are you tear was not there? Rachel a lot of western governments.

And they're just people in desperate desperate need living in places where their own communities sort of don't care either way, I have turned on them for fear of them also being tortured. Absolutely, correct. And what this is also very much. This is not just a gay man's issue. Or a by man's issue. Are trans persons issue. They are especially targeting lesbians. Specifically, they are really going after queer women in this crackdown. The torture that they are being put through is not even something I wanna talk about its horrific. It's electric shock. It's all sorts of crazy insertion, it's animal behavior. It's animal behavior. They are pudding before they kill them and to humiliate them. They are shaving men's heads and making them wear dresses. It's it's really just horrifying. And it's happening. It's on the rise to around ups literally when you hear the word round up. You know, something bad is happening. What is the U N doing about it? I don't think much right now. I don't think much. They're still investigating it for a long time. It was like is this really happening or is this just one person you better fucking be on it. But the torture air is getting more and more violence, and it's getting more and more cruel. A and they don't want survivor told pink news. They don't feed us who escaped they didn't feed us. They gave us some water, which was usually the dirty water left after mopping. Yeah.

Roms on Katter off who is the leader of Chechnya that the Kremlin approved of completely denies this out. And also, though has denied that there any LGBT people living in Chechnya remember that. Yeah. So this is really horrible. And I don't know. I guess the reason I'm bringing them both up is because. It is one thing to outright torture people, and it is humiliating and disgusting and devastating. What also leads to bad behavior and cruel behavior is your president. And your supreme court saying, you should be banned from something that you are less than fit to serve for something. It is a slippery slope. Yeah.
