The Death of Europe, by Way of Immigration

"All righty, everybody, Dennis prager here. And I'm speaking with a major European thinker Britt, Doug miss Murray, his book, a heaven in front of me. I'm reading it, is that important? The strange death of Europe immigration identity Islam. So here's let me because I so respect. I want to bounce my theories off you, and my my listeners are probably tired of hearing me say this, but I tell most guests to my show. I have no issue with your differing with me. Do not feel sort of you have to be pulled. You have to be polite but don't worry. You don't have to be the end of that. You're right. I'm not worried about that. Okay. So I believe Europe has been dying since the end of World War I. World War I knocked out national identity and knocked out religious identity from the Europeans and there is nothing left after that. Because what they believed in led to carnage. That's what they believe and to a certain extent it was true. So how do you react to that? No, I think there's something in this. I say repeatedly in my book that we got to recognize that a lot of the troubles we have have foundations that are totally rational. It's reasonable for Europeans to fear themselves in some countries. It's reasonable for Germany to be concerned and for German people to be concerned about them if they feel kind of expansionist this week. Totally understandable. And at the same time, you have to work out what is an appropriate response to your history. What is a humble and appropriate response to your history and what turns into being a suicidal response to your history? And I'm all for appropriate humility in the face of mistakes from our past, just as everybody else should be not to learn from the past would be a form of insanity, but that doesn't mean, particularly when you have millions of people who feel no such uncertainty about their past or no humility about their history.

Author William Federer Describes the Peace of Augsburg 1955

"Show and we're talking about how the pilgrims came to be the pilgrims, the book is titled the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it, the prequel to America's freedom of the author, William Federer on the line. Bill, you were talking about really, it's just amazing to me. If you don't mind backtracking a little bit, because there's so many things unfolding at the same time. So let me put the needle back on the record. Right. Well, the idea is that Muslims are invading Europe surrounding Vienna, 1529. The reformation started in 1517 and now we got this internal and external disruption of Europe. The older Roman Emperor, Charles V of Spain, he has the biggest empire on Planet Earth. I mean, the Philippines are named after his son, king Philip of Spain. And he has all the new world. He's taken the gold from the new world to fit on his navy to keep the Muslims from taking over the Mediterranean. Anyway, he's faced with his double dilemma, reformation out inside and based on the outside. He actually strikes a deal with the protestants. It's called a piece of Augsburg of 1555. I speak a little German and that's a fun number. It's own 1400 proven folks. 55. That's the first treaty ever to recognize protestants and in this treaty is a little Latin phrase that made a big difference. It's cool ratio to religio, which means whose is The Rain? Is a religion? So in other words, look Protestant king, believe it ever you want in your kingdom. Let's just work together against these Muslims who are invading Europe because they sort of want to kill us all. Well, this started a domino effect in the next century where different kings fully different things. And Sweden and Germany were Lutheran Switzerland Calvin and Scotland Presbyterian England was Anglican Holland Dutch reform. And of course, Italy, Spain, France, Austria, remained

Author William Federer Describes 'The Treacherous World of the 16th Century'

"William Federer has written a book called the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it which its effectively the prequel to America's freedom, William Federer, welcome to the program. Great to be with you. Hey, I mean, the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it. Most of us know so little about the 16th century. We don't think of it as treacherous or non treacherous. What are we talking about here? What is that what is it that got you to write this book? You've written so many books on history. It's a joy to talk to you on any historical subject. But I love it when you come out with a book like this, because you really have done your homework and we get to benefit. What is it that why do you call it the prequel to America's freedom? What did they leave? Well, Europe was ruled by kings and it was being invaded by the sultan of Turkey. The Ottoman sultan Suleiman the Magnificent he was surrounding Vienna. So backdrop, the Muslims conquered all of North Africa, which used to be Christian. There were 250 Catholic diocese along North Africa. Muslims invaded Spain and held it for 700 years and they were just driven out in 1492. So just a couple of years earlier, the Muslims had controlled Egypt for 600 years. It had been founded by the Christian face Mark that wrote the gospel of Matthew Mark Luke and John. And then Siri was completely Christian for 6 centuries of angiotensin by the apostle Paul until Khalid Omar conquers it. And the Turks convert to Islam and they invaded to what is today Turkey and all 7 churches mentioned in the book of revelation are wiped out and then they finally cross the Bosporus and conquer Constantinople in 1453 and then finally they're invading Europe and surrounding Vienna Austria the year 1529. So here we have an Islamic invasion into Europe and just a couple of years earlier the reformation started 1517 with Martin Luther. And so Europe has an inside outside chaos going on and the Holy Roman Emperor is the king of Spain. Charles V now the title Holy Roman Emperor means he's sort of responsible for defending Christendom. And so here he is wanting to defend against the Islamic invasion. At the same time, he is inherited all the new world, right? Columbus discovered it for Ferdinand Isabella. And so he's taking the gold from the new world to fit out his navy to keep the Muslims from taking over the Mediterranean

The Incredible True Story of Squanto

"In 1608 before any ships before any people settled in what's now Massachusetts, I never knew this, because we all know that the Mayflower landed there in 1620. Chris, you knew that? I did at one point in my life. Right. So 1620 is when the pilgrims land at Plymouth. Sorry. But I always assumed growing up that that's the first time that anybody came to like what's Massachusetts. But I found out that's not the case. And the story of squanto, which I'm going to tell right now, which just wait, wait till you hear this. It starts in 1608, and it turns out that English trading ships would travel from Europe from England to Iceland, Greenland make their way down Nova Scotia all the way down and they would trade with the natives. Now I never knew that. So the natives were familiar with English sailors coming and trading and giving them knives and pots and pans and they would give them pelts and whatever. And they would trade. I never knew this. Well, in 1608, a group, a group, a ship led by a captain hunt lands or drops anchor off of what is today Plymouth Massachusetts. And the braves come down to the shore to trade with them as they've done before. Well, just so happens that this captain hunt was a bad man, and instead of trading with the braves, they whack them over the head, put them in the long boat, take them out to the ship, throw them in the hold, sail to malaga, Spain and sell them into slavery. This is 1608, one of the braves was a 12 year old. Boy named tisquantum. Now this is true story. This is all documented. I've done the research. Others have done the research. It's true. So he has bought by some kindly friars, who seemed to treat him well. Teach him the Christian religion, and this is the part that we'll never know how this happened. But they arrange for him to be freed and to travel to London. Now imagine from malaga Spain to London. So this is an Indian from what is today Massachusetts, a Native American, a patuxent, makes its way to London with the idea, and this is where it's crazy of getting back across the Atlantic to go back home. I know. It's like being on the moon and saying, so when's the next ship going back? There's no next ship going back. What are you talking about? But I guess the idea was not insane. He worked in London from what is it around 1612, 1613 for four or 5 years with a family called slany. This is all documented. This Indian named squanto to squantum learns the English language. He's there when he's there when Queen Elizabeth is on the throne, we're talking Shakespeare is writing his play. So he's in London. This Massachusetts Indian, and this is years before the pilgrims ever get to Plymouth rock, crazy, right? In 1618, I believe 1619, a ship is found. For him to go back to his home. And he's going to translate obviously because he knows the language. He's going to be on the ship working with these English as they're stopping, you know, and he's going to be doing the translating and so on and so forth. So somehow he gets passage on a ship. The ship ends up having to spend the winter in I can't remember if it was Iceland or Greenland. It's in my book. Where does it say? Newfoundland now, hold on a second. Anyway, the point is that it took them quite a while to get there, right? So they basically, no, it was Newfoundland. Sorry. They spend the winter in Newfoundland. And then the next spring, this is like 1619, they bring him to what's now the coast of Massachusetts drop him off. Thank you very much. Goodbye. This sounds crazy, right? This is document. This is a true story. So a year plus before the pilgrims land. This Indian has made the journey from Plymouth to Spain to London, spans 5 years London, learns the English language, learns the ways the English, and then ends up back where he started. He finds his way on foot to the village, which is right where Plymouth is today, right? Village where his Indian, where his family is, they have all been wiped out. In ten years, he's dreamed about getting home, he's dreamed about returning. He's dreamed for ten years. He's thought in his mind of doing the impossible to get all the way back

James Poulos, Executive Editor of the American Mind, Describes 'Transhumanism'

"I listened to the American mind podcast, which is phenomenal from the Claremont institute. And I was listening a couple weeks ago. And I was texting Conor in the midst of the episode and I said, we have to have this guy. It was just so interesting to me. It's doctor James pulos. I hope I did okay with that, pronunciation. He's the cofounder and executive editor of the American mind at the Claremont institute and author of the new book human forever, and the digital politics of the spiritual war. And so let me just first kind of start with James. If you could introduce yourself to the audience then also introduce to our audience, what is transhumanism? So it's great to be with you. Thanks for having me on. The best way to think about transhumanism, I would say is in the following way, once upon a time, technology was firmly on America's side, the electric age was very good to us, the telegraph, the spread of the incandescent bulb, radio television, really the time when America became the world's leading power, superpower that was so, so powerful, not just in terms of military might, but also in culture, you know, in mass communications and every all the ways that that shapes people's inner and outer lives. Europe did pretty poorly during that time. Everyone's empires fell apart, massive world wars, genocide, disillusionment, loss of religious faith, really just kind of a wipeout of that of that civilization. It's just still barely trying to hang on in some ways. And so there was this big sense of optimism and triumphalism around the Internet when it came into being in the United States. You know, of course, we thought we created these technologies. They're super powerful. We have a huge head start on everyone else. And so they're really just going to fulfill our consummate. America's role as the most important country in the world, the country that can sort of turn the world into something that's American and its essence and its civilization. And that's not what these machines did. You know, the elites, the folks in charge, were really shocked by the way people use these technologies to put opinions on the Internet that they didn't like. And ultimately to elect a president that they didn't like very much. And so once that happened, there was this real kind of head check. Suddenly everyone had a smartphone and this technology wasn't just a cumulative. It wasn't just a progressive addition to the technological advancement of the past. But it was really something fundamentally different. A new medium, a new form of technology. And the way that it's reshaped our inner and outer lives, their senses, their sensibilities, maybe even our souls. Has already been super profound. People are now sort of realizing that every day is they look at the news that's coming out on a regular basis around the clock. And so what effect are these technologies having on who we are as human beings? And I think the effects very

NY Rep. Claudia Tenney Shares Her Backstory and Connection to the Former Yugoslavia

"First welcome back to our one on one end studio in discussion with New York's congresswoman Claudia teddy. For those who aren't familiar with your backstory. I didn't even know it until you came in today. You said you mentioned my book, and then you said you sold me on TV and you bought my book, which talks about my parents who escaped Hungary under communism and then mentions what was happening next door in Yugoslavia. Share with us who aren't familiar or who aren't from your district, your connection to the Balkans in the Eastern Europe. I'm not of Yugoslavia in descent or Balkan descent, but I did actually see you and I said, oh, look, you know, because one of my jobs when I worked at the former Yugoslav consulate, which is obviously gone because of the war. We're still look for people in the Balkans, people in the region, and I just, you know, anyone with a sort of the accident, even though Hungarian is not similar to several creations to different route language, I just said, oh, who's this guy? Oh, he's talking about hungry. Interesting because of all that was happening and Yugoslavia being so unique, technically not behind the iron curtain. Tito was able to keep him out of the common form. So I went to Yugoslavia as a student in 1981, 40 years ago, just for a study group and ended up falling in love with the place to just so diverse and interesting and continued to stay there. Work for the consulate worked on the Olympics in Sarajevo in 1984. Learn the language, you know, just continue to go back and then obviously through the war, it was a tough time for me. I had friends from every part of the country, the former years of everywhere. Because we all worked in the consulate together, and so that's been my connection and just living in a country that was communist and then seeing the transformation since the war and them trying to emerge as a market economy, and reading your book where you hear about you're talking about some of the things that happened and how a lot of Hungarians were trying to cross through Yugoslavia and get to freedom and how Tito basically turned them in. And they read the benevolent dictator who was Marshall, Joseph pizza, right? Right, yeah, so called benevolent dictator, and that's where I, you know, I think we're on this moment in American history where people should learn that when they say we have communism we've never just done it quite right, and we had a benevolent dictator in Tito, not a benevolent dictator. Tito had a dissident camp where people were tortured and killed on a barren island in the Adriatic Sea. So it's all these communists. And he played and he played the nationalities. Right. Slovenes vice the Croatians, the Croatians versus the Serbs. Yeah, and technically he was Croatian, but first and foremost he was a communist. Right. He was able to bridge the gap and keep an allied relationship with the Americans and with kind of keeping everyone at bay to maintain this sort of artificial union of these countries and Yugoslavia, which wants Tito died. You know, they devolved into war within about ten

Marc Morano: Most Countries Are in It for the 'Cold Climate Cash'

"Welcome back to the man who told me more than anybody else about the climate hoax, Mark marano. I wrote about it, that moment in my second book why we fight. I have a photograph from the back of the rose garden for me. It had nothing to do with my remit national security. But it was my proudest moment in The White House when president Trump stood up in the rose garden, beautiful sunny June day, pulled us out of the Paris climate treaty called because it wasn't a treaty and said that the famous line that will echo down through the ages. I was elected by the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris, you're damn right. That's why the president removed us. The fact is, these things are absurd because they punish us and we are even cleaner today now thanks to president Trump than the requirements of the Paris accord, demanded of us whilst others like China and Russia are either unaffected unlimited or Mark. They get money from us to continue polluting. Am I missing something here? No, you're absolutely right. These countries are eager to come to the United Nations climate summit. So much so that they lifted the vaccine COVID vaccine mandate in Scotland. No, this is anywhere else you travel in Europe. You've got to have a 7 day at least in the U countries. You have to have a 7 day quarantine or 8 day quarantine, but they lifted it because they want these countries to come in because the only way they can entice them is with cold, hard cash. Of course, filtered through the United Nations. And the United Nations is seeking to pay the countries in the developing world who are best able to keep their citizens locked in poverty. This money will go to the leaders of these countries, not to do anything for the environment or to help their people. It's going to end up helping these leaders get reelected, building monuments, stadiums, ensuring their political machines are well funded. The UN knows politics. They are experts. They're not climate experts, but they're political experts. And this is the reason that you see all of these countries. In fact, the highest participation rates of these UN summits are usually African nations because they know the reason they're drawn there is the UN has offers of cold climate cash to go to these leaders around

Author Raymond Arroyo Explains the Origins of Christmas Tinsel

"Had a chance to talk to my pal Raymond Arroyo, who lighten the mood a little bit for a couple of minutes. But he also has a great ability to shine a spotlight on some of these crazy issues in some of the insanity we're facing in America. Here's my chat with Raymond Arroyo, Fox News channel. Tell us what the genesis of this book. How did it come into being? Well, you know, Mike, years ago, when I was a young reporter traveling in Eastern Europe, there are trees or decked out with tinsel from top to bottom. I mean, it looks like the front of a Trump Tower or something. You know, it's old glitter and tinsel. And if you look in the bows of those trees, there are little spider ornaments jeweled spiders. And I couldn't figure every house I went to every business. They had this same setup. Well, I guess I didn't pay much attention to it. I thought they were recycling stuff from Halloween or I didn't know what they were doing. Years later, I came across a footnote during research for another book. And it says there is a legend from the second century of Mary Joseph and Jesus running into a cave on their way to Egypt. And they meet a spider who performs a special service for them. Well, it turns out that spider and this story is the origin of tinsel. I always thought tinsel was to replicate bicycles on a tree. No, it is a testament and a homage to this tale of a spider who spun a web perform this amazing service for the holy family. And you know, at the heart of the story, and the reason I think it's resonated with people so deeply in the last year and again this year is because as Mary says of the spider at one point in all of us, all are here for a reason. And no matter how small your gift, no matter how the world ignores you or tells you, you're not good enough or get over in the shadows or we don't want to see you anymore. That gift that service may be of the utmost importance. Not only to you and yours but to all of

'Eurotrash' Author David Harsanyi Shares His Thoughts on Brexit

"Welcome back to one on one with mitigated columnist David harsanyi. Well, let's grasp the nettle by the thorn Brexit. What does Brexit mean? Is it the last saving grace? Is it the Hail Mary? Or is it irrelevant in terms of the Euro trash ideas of the continent? Because at the end of the day, it's not the continent. It's the UK and it's the UK rejecting the bad ideas. Well, what is the geo strategic or historic import of those 17 million breaths saying thanks, but no thanks. Now, as you know, the British have always been a poor fit I think in the European Union or fit, the French didn't really even want them to be part of it initially. They are far more far less controlled than ever took on the currency. They're more free market oriented in general. The British are my favorite my favorite people in Europe because we come from them. We are their spawn. We have there. It's their ideas that made America great. I think they manifested in more better ways here in the long run and the British sort of abandoned many of them, but in general I'm a fan and I'm a fan of Brexit. But does it really change much? I don't think so. I mean, the so called conservatives in Britain are just in Europe, there is no real ideological right. There is a nationalistic right, perhaps. There is sort of a status right. But there aren't very many classical liberals on the right. There are some, I'm not saying, but when you have these governments, it's usually just once status party against another, which is what's happening now, probably in Britain for the most part. So I don't think it changes much in the trajectory of Europe itself. Obviously, it's different.

I'll just tell one story that may flabbergast the listeners, but I'm sure you can give other ones from across the continent where the British police are actually policing hate speech to the extent that if you say something that is not politically correct, you may find police officers knocking on your door because of something you put on Facebook. Not inciting a crime, but simply because some groups of minority felt disenfranchised by your words. David, talk to us about just how tolerant Europe has lately become. Well, I have stories in that in that regard too, but I think first, I'll just talk about the insanity of anyone believing that Europe is more tolerant than us. It's simply an incredible thought to even grasp on to because there is literally not one ethnic minority that is properly assimilated into European cultures. I mean, there is generational poverty and high unemployment in Germany from Turkish immigrants that have been there for since the 1950s. It just goes from generation to generation. In France outside of major cities like Paris, there are just huge ghettos of North African immigrants. We have never been assimilated into society. In America, I live near D.C. here. I have neighbors from all over the world in all kinds of situations in fact from situations that they would be killing each other if they were in Pakistani is living next to Indians, et cetera. I mean, the idea that America is not tolerant is absurd. We are, of course, imperfect, of course, we have things to fix. We're human beings and all of that. But as a system goes, there has been no place more welcoming to other people. We all know this because we're all different people in a way. And we all accept a certain set of ideals that allow us to live together in peace. That is not really the case in most European

"Rockets russia. Fires during its drills may be aimed at an imaginary enemy but moscow sees adversaries all around it and confrontation remains a very real threat. Drew the chapman moscow when into european tensions rise. It's become customary for politicians and opinion-makers to look to the german chancellor for reassurance seemingly unflappable angola michael's trademark com even under the monica of moody or mother which believe it or not germans actually meant as a compliment probably and best unpack that won the mercury era however is coming to an end with just a week to go before german federal elections on september. Twenty sixth all bets are off as to who will be the next chancellor and this is a situation which has commentators. Dwi's political correspondent. Thomas sparrow surprised but also rather excited as i found out when i spoke to him earlier. This is not normal in german politics that has to do with the fact that this election in general is not normal. It's an election that will mark the end of an era. The end of angela merkel's era german chancellor after sixteen years and the beginning of a new era for german politics as well. This is a very very different election to the ones that we normally see which makes it very interesting but also very difficult to predict because we mentioned it correctly when we look at the at the polls surveys. It's all changing very quickly in may. For example in the spring we were talking about the greens leading in the polls. We've also spoken about the conservative bloc leading in the polls and now we're talking about the social democrats leading in the polls which basically means that it's all wide open and it'll be very interesting to see what happens twenty six so an election with angela merkel thomas. The end of the michael era that is at the end of machoism could mechanism continue if they ever was such a thing as mechanism mercantilism. I think is clothing to stability especially here in germany. I think people voted for michael because they knew what they were getting into. They knew what they would get from the chancellor so that is certainly one of the key elements to understand what michael meant for germany. We could do a whole program on angela. Merkel's legacy and i would just say that the legacy is very different if you look at it from an internal perspective here in germany and from an international perspective what angela merkel meant for germany and for europe. There are certainly important things that she did this. There are also certain aspects that you can criticize about angela. Merkel's lakers. But i will say mercantilism could continuing certain aspects. I think germans still want a certain stability germans and not particularly interested in any type of very controversial politics. That's not my view of this. The candidate the other conservative block army is seen as a candidate of continuity but it is unclear now if you look at the latest polls to what extent he will be able to lead the conservatives to victory in the upcoming elections something also interesting which is very unusual here in germany. Is that the candidate for the social. Democrats was also the vice chancellor now. The minister of finance in the german cabinet is seen as someone who to a certain extent could follow certain aspects of merkley. In fact he was seen and the front cover of a magazine or long ago. Doing the very famous mack. How right so. There is the iconic gesture that michael developed so thumbs and forefinger join into a diamond projecting calm and strings and continuity as. You've been saying this messaging. It seems surreal. Doesn't it because of course continuity at the moment is not an option. We're coming out of a pandemic we are in the middle of a mass extinction events talking to hunger striker last week. A youth hunger-strike over the climate. He was saying things simply cannot continue as they have done before. I would say there are two key issues when we talk about the german election. There obviously more issues and that's something that we saw for example in the most recent debate on on television there were all sorts of different topics that discuss there. But i would say that there are two very big issue very immediate issues. I would say the first one. Undoubtedly the corona virus pandemic the fourth wave of the pandemic germany's vaccination rate which is still a concern for many here in this country and also the medium to long-term economic impact of the corona virus. Pandemic this something that the next german government will certainly have to deal with on the second one undoubtedly the climate crisis. I'm gonna michael herself stressed that more needs to be done and it's become an even more urgent topic if you consider those recent floods in the western part of germany in in july which really revealed the urgency of the matter. So i would say that. There's no way that germany can continue as it has continued. Maybe some policies will continue from the previous michael era but germany will certainly have to increase its fight against climate change and not only on its own but also with other countries in particular with other european countries that thomas eben german newspapers. At the moment. You're gonna see a whole load of articles about traffic lights and jamaican flags. Can you explain what is going on. What's all this about. Well the interesting thing about about germany's election is that the election does not end the day. People go to vote but it starts when people go to votes so after september twenty sixth we will see the main german political parties transform. Coalition coalitions here in germany have strange names to help people understand them a traffic light. Coalition represents the parties with a.

We were driving along with alone with the name of that mineral water written in big white letters. And in the middle of the loan pavilion with people milling around it.

Look the people have when they getting something for nothing locals mostly who had developed a bad worst bring etiquette many come with crates of empty bottles to fill but when they go to the front of the queue they feel one bottle that went to the back again.

We swim in the evening and every so often when the waters particularly flat we do what we call the exploits and swim from one bay round the headland to the next bay a more back even on stormy days we go muck about waves so when the wind started to blow this year. We hit the water as we always do. There was no orange flag up beach. Flags like traffic lights green for go red for stop and our interest speed up or you might not make it before it goes red so there. We were bobbing around having an all right time on the edge of the water and after a while i had the idea questionable in retrospect to swim out a few strokes to where the waves were bigger and immediately found myself being swept out to sea. I swam towards the beach. As hard as i could. But i was going further and further out. I could see my wife increasingly terrified as she realized what was happening. Pierre my sixteen year old a strongest women me had understood quicker than anyone. He been out near where i was an had felt that current and he swam out towards me.

"Accords can't be trusted and that again armed. Struggle is their best option to effectively. We're going back in time. You know stops the hard border. It gives some republicans contemporary justification. For you know it's not just ideological saying this is an abstract anymore. Look with dole's pope's along not border. This is differentiating. What they see as does part of ireland from the rest of under boom as ominous as that is donnelly underscores. It's a minority position on the republican side. And of course a hypothetical for the moment but there's another minority in play here remember. The majority of citizens in northern ireland did not want brexit preferring to keep their status in the eu. So there are signs. Even some former staunch unionists are reconsidering their traditional opposition to a united ireland. At this point the only conceivable option for remaining in the u. and there are those hoping to capitalize on that possible change in attitude among the most prominent the new lord mayor of belfast. john finucane. who's warning everyone involved to watch their words. There's responsibility on all of those. Who are part of this discussion to be mindful of their rhetoric. Ns because i think some political discourse around brexit in particular ryan. The problems that are fears as a result of brexit hasn't been helpful on new day. Brexit doesn't automatically mean that unification will happen. But what i do think is that means that the conversation hoste happen because the conversation has already started not just from people within the north but people all over the island of ireland uncertainty within europe as well because they they look at that possible solution to a problem for those who carry european identity but realize that those rights will be given open the event of day. Brexit finucane's a member of xinfang which has been advocating a border pool hoping for reunification for years already but the prospect of violence is something finucane doesn't take lightly and not just because of his current role is lord mayor. He was just nine years old when pro. British gunman killed his father. Prominent human rights lawyer in front of the family also wounding. His mother finucane hopes. A methodical approach can preserve the fragile peace in northern ireland. What we need to do is we need to prepare. We need to research on be able to be in a position to answer people's questions this isn't going to be about. We have an a flag in front of people visas or panting ally on the side of the ball on asking people to vote for something. When they the wall of the circumstances on brexit i think is a referendum that was disastrous in a sense. That people probably didn't understand exactly what they were voting for or certainly hideout with transpired over three years and i think that's primarily the reason why we're in the mass that we're in so i think all of the all of the questions that people have arrived. Pensions education health system. What their rates would be. What the ship of what division of would look like. I think that those need to be answered on the other side of the fence so to speak. There's still a lot of concern about that prospect over in the protestant neighborhood of shankill road. I meet billy. Hutchinson a belfast city council member from the progressive unionist party people are entitled to vote for for a united under remain part of britain. There's going to be a very large majority who are against whatever. The komo's violence majority of learn is very very dangerous. And i say that in a sense that you think could happen. Hutchinson knows a thing or two about getting caught up in a violent mindset. He served sixteen years in prison for the murder of two catholics. During the troubles. I took a decision at the time. The you don't say this as an exclusive to as a reason. When i watch people been pissed being blown up and children's limbs being put into the plastic bag by paramedics. I felt that the british were up to appear. Hutchinson was among the protestants who voted against brexit. That doesn't mean he'd vote for a united ireland but whereas he wants picked up weapons to prevent it. Hutchinson does now disavow violence as a mean to achieve a political goal. He's just worried about those. Who haven't what i'm concerned about is The people try to use result from brexit or result from the border patrol as an excuse to start another war but things have changed since those bloody days of terror and that could point to a change in the appetite for unification for the youth of northern ireland troubles. These days most likely means difficulty finding job. Add to that changing demographics. Protestants are losing their majority ireland at the same time however the elitist surveys show that most northern ireland residents want to remain in the uk for now but no deal will hit northern ireland hard economically. And that says queens university professor colin harvey is perhaps the biggest reason to start the debate about unification now in earnest. The british government has behaved recklessly and irresponsibly in relation to this region for some time many of us have spent their entire lives and the sense trying to hold things together here but the debate is happening. And i think. I'm just a boring person in the room. The academic thing rather than just pretended as preparedness plan. Let's of the academic studies that's of the forums to. Let's make sure people know what they're voting for. If we ever do these things so harvey is even daringly suggesting publicly that the border pull scheduled for the twenty second of may twenty twenty three. That's twenty five years after the good friday agreement. Creating the conditions for such a vote was approved. Teri schultz d-w belfast keith. Walker in bomb were starting with northern ireland. This half hour on. David hunter is news. Editor at radio in belfast. Just how fragile is the peace in northern ireland at the moment day was.

The most of the panels were destroyed. The french diplomat found one on the foot of the parthenon and then shipped it to paris. Where has been on display at the liuw for more than two hundred years. Another fragment remains in athens and fourteen others at the british museum part of a controversial collection which lord elgin a british aristocrat hold of centuries ago in which greece has been demanding back for decades. Numerous negotiations have failed to solve. What's being called the world's most complex and longest running cultural dispute but throughout the years public opinion in the uk around the globe have shifted in favor of the return of the so-called elga marbles and while many here applauded fronts is agreement to lend the prize parthenon fragment back to athens diehard restitution. Campaigners are livid they say the deal has been a complete washout and this they say because agreement to the loan means athens's explicit acceptance of the lose ownership of the greek fragment move they say will only further embolden the british museum stunts but more than that critics are howling at the deal saying mitsotakis missed out and a once in a lifetime. Opportunity since surging to power.

We're being deported to a war. The stories and more coming up on inside europe german chancellor angela merkel and the british prime minister boris johnson madden berlin. During the week they discussed among other things away forward on britain's exit from the eu. It was boris johnson's first trip abroad since becoming prime minister. Dwi political correspondent. Thomas spiro has been following events on fold in the german capital. at what do the two leaders say. Thomas i would say. There was a cautious optimism from both leaders that there will be a deal in the end. Both leaders stressed that they would like the uk to leave the european union with a deal where the difference is however is how they intend to do that. Because there are plenty of differences between angela merkel and boris johnson when it comes to some of the elements of the withdrawal agreement in particular. We're talking here about the the irish backstop and it seems that both readers have very different views when it comes to resolving that key issue of the irish baxter but in particular i would say that there was a certain willingness to compromise a certain willingness to find common ground. The big question however is how they will manage to find that common ground. I think once that willingness is there are i think that's looking very very positive on that irish backstop which requires but sides to keep an open border between northern ireland and the republic of which of course is an e member state the republic violence. I wha what is going to happen regarding the irish boxed-up well. boris johnson. Clearly stated that he doesn't want that backstop to be part of britain's withdrawal or exit from the european union that he clearly stated. He mentioned that there are problems with the irish backstop. he had previously that. It is anti-democratic that it ties the uk too much to the european union on the other hand angela merkel and not only anglo markle but many other european leaders as well believe that the irish pub is a very good solution. Eliza temporary solution to try and make sure that there is no heart border between the republic of ireland and northern ireland. That's exactly where the sort of key element lies how they will manage to find a way for boris johnson to get what he wants and the european union leaders to get what they want. Because something that i'm gonna markle. Clearly stated is that there is no intention from the european union to reopen the withdrawal agreement. There is scope to negotiate when we're talking about the document on the future relations but that that will draw agreement such which was negotiated between boris. Johnson's predescessor theresa may and european union leaders is a compromise between both sides and the european union. The european commission believes it is a good compromise. Something that i would just like to add many people in united kingdom say yes. They have to go to berlin to paris to try and find solutions when it comes to brexit but from the german perspective it is something that is above all happening in the european commission in brussels. So i'm gonna merckel can say a lot. But it is ultimately up to the twenty-seven to come up also with proposals when it comes to solving these diseases so michael seems to be flexible and open to renegotiating certain parts of it but then jr with other areas. She seems to be inflexible. Am i right in saying that. Yes you are right in saying that. Obviously it's in the best interest of the european union. I think that's absolutely clear to have a deal in the end. The european union does not want the uncertainty that would come with a no deal brexit at the same time they have said clearly time and time again. Different european union leaders are they are preparing for no deal scenario but they are preparing for a deal scenario as well and deal to narrow as well would mean some sort of compromise. Some sort of change because there is no way as boris. Johnson has clearly stated that they're going to accept the deal that includes the packs of as it is right now so anger markle on the one hand says we believe that what has been negotiated is good but at the same time whereas the open to more discussions to see how we can come to a common ground how we can come to a solution to resolve this very tricky issue of the irish baxter. And how has germany being preparing for any scenario. Be a deal or no deal. They had been a lot of preparations. Keith because something. That is as i said. Jimmy wants to avoid any type of uncertainty uncertainty in particular in times when the economy is not in its best shape so germany has said on various occasions that would prefer the uk to leave with a deal in particular with the withdrawal agreement. That has been agreed on and the document on the future relations but at the same time it has passed many laws and regulations to prepare for a case of no deal and the preparations for a case of no deal mean that germany wants to minimize any negative impact in negative risks that come with that uncertainty. That will follow a no deal outcome. No deal brexit in october if the u. k. Indeed leaves the european union on october. Thirty without a deal. Thomas thank you always a pleasure.

One thing to keep in mind though is that they both share a common interest.

What comes next so then. New alliance have short term challenge and a long term challenge. The short term challenge is to appoint a cabinet decided on the name who gets worse. Then come up with a joint Government program and the davis in the and. That's that's the way they could fight over over policing the next two days. And then if they manage to appoint a anything managed to come up with a coherent Government program if i start movement will put the agreement to a vote among its own line supporters and if supporters of the movement. Both against the deal that could collide and italy would have an early general election. We have to keep in. Mind that if i start movement like to put.

Continue to mount. Its past half billion euros already. The ransom was not paid which experts as crucial. But the criminals who stole the personal data are still threatening to make it public. Teri schultz d-w brussels. The italian government has announced that large cruise ships will be banned from sailing into the center of venice from the beginning of august. The move follows years of warnings that the ships caused damage to the venetian lagoons ecosystem and the city's historic foundations and buildings. The decision came after unesco. The un's cultural organization proposed putting venison negative list of endangered world. Heritage will joining me. Is our italy correspondent andrew. Van schaik angelo. It sounds like a victory for locals and activists who have been trying for years to get. These huge ships banned from the center of venice. But does this decision go far enough. According to many venetians it doesn't you're only banned the really big cruise ships like the giants to ones that way more than twenty five thousand tonnes longer than one hundred one hundred eighty meters and thirty five meters. Those the giants that contain up to six thousand passengers. Those are not allowed to dock invent anymore but have to go to porto marghera which is still in the same quite fragile venetian lagoon venetians belief that this is only anesthetic solution so basically venetians wonders cruise ships to disappear completely in terms of the timing of this decision. Now it came. Just before a unesco meeting that could have seen venice being put on a list of endangered world heritage. To what extent did that force the authorities to introduce this restriction on these large cruise ships as you already suggested. The timing is not really coincidental. Unesco already had worn italy they will take venice after the world heritage list if the country will do more to protect the city this friday starchy annual unesco meeting this in china where amongst others. The venice case will be discussed. So i believe the italian government just quickly pass this bill to influence unesco's decision because it would be really embarrassing if the un organization will take venice. Maybe maybe the most beautiful city in the world and it would have taken it off of this world heritage list. You've reported on this issue just last week for inside europe. Can you explain why the authorities in venice have been so reluctant for so long to ban these ships from the center of the city. The answer is is is quite easy. It's an economical issue. Cruise ships take millions of tourists a year to venice. Many venetians own shops restaurants and live on tourism in two thousand nineteen cruise. Passengers spent four hundred million euros in venice. So that's that's the main reason. The downside is that these people spend relatively little money although five four hundred million euros seem a lot but much less than tourists that stay overnight but still use. The city's sewer system is go to the toilet and they trash collection system as they throw away to empty water bottles for example so for the city of venice. Type of tourism is cost for local entrepreneurs. It's their livelihood and That's dilemma caught in. But because of these many venetians live of tourism. The city has been very reluctant to bando ships from from venezuela a locals and activists worried that this new restriction will keep unesco happy but the nothing more will be done by the authorities to to further protect the lagoon under city. Yes they are As i said these these join ships will have to go to porto marghera which is in the same lagoon. We're talking about ships twenty five thousand tonnes and one hundred eighty meters. It means that in the lagoon. The has to be created new fairway which damages the lagoon itself and not to mention the pollution from research shows that the forty seven forty seven cruise ships from the world largest cruise company. Which is america. American company called carnival. Have a ten times more sulfur oxide emissions than all two hundred sixty million cars european union combined in two thousand nineteen more than five hundred ships docked in venice and proably the next year there will be five hundred again but just a bit further away so i think they're worries are really justified. As you've pointed out tourism is vital to venice. The city's really suffered economically during the the pandemic of the locals optimistic. They can bounce back from liz. Yes they are optimistic. But many of them don't want to return to the over tourism of the years before the pandemic in two thousand and nineteen twenty. Three million tourists quit squeezed themselves through the narrow streets of venice. Twenty three million. Only fifty thousand people live in venice Venetians they do want tourism as the city for almost more. Maybe one hundred percent is depending on it but they want different tourism people that stay overnight at gopher dinners on the canal. Not the ones that come in the morning. Bring your own lunch and leave before dinner so to speak quality tourism but the big question is how are we gonna do this man. That's a big challenge for the future. Allah italy correspondent andrew.

"Good amount of time together. Wanted increasing crack donald that missy descent for biden. Call him an autocrat. During his presidential election campaign the us leader is making the promotion of democracy a fundamental tenet of his firm policy but one to has grievances washington backs syrian kurdish forces which are fighting the islamic state and that angered ankara because it considers a syrian kurdish group terrorists linked to insurgents fighting in turkey presidential adviser. Choshin says the stakes couldn't be higher when the president's meet their stu option one is go ahead and non allies case by case in. Us even though we may be have some of the problems we can soul in mutual. I've ever we are alive. The us have given confidence security number one for the nanto. The squirrel the original interest. I helped to biden inside hash to be respected. Thirteen the proposals yes. Turkey is also accepted critics of the us pants victim human rights and other issues. I've ever if you will be lost forever and this is we'll end of the turkey. Us turkey recently deployed fighter jets to the baltic in support of nato allies facing off against russia. It was seen as a move by on ankara to underscore. It's important to the alliance but repulsed turkey watered down. Nato condemnation of belarus for intercepting. A civilian plane was widely interpreted as a pro russian gesture on insists. Turkey can have good relations with both moscow and the west but analysts. Google venture says the message from biden will be the turkey has to choose which means has to give up is russian missiles. I think the fate of the relations and the fate of the meeting hinges on the fate of as four hundred missiles into a key because the biden administration had already presented the issue as an existential one in the context of the relations with turkey for them. I think the minimum is to get rid of those missiles. So keeping both americans and the russians happy is not within the realm of possibility so long. It's time for him to make a hard choice. I don't see if he can postpone such a crucial decision and he got himself painted in the corner. Ministers have repeatedly insisted that the russia missiles will stay claiming issue of national sovereignty. Diplomats are rumored to be working hard to find a compromise but washington is warning thurber damaging sanctions if the missiles remain. Meanwhile urged one is looking increasingly. Vulnerable in opinion polls so washington may seek to avoid a complete rupture calculating that turkey without earth one may be in the offing in the not too distant future during jones. D-w istanbul and i'm keith walker in bonn. You're listening to inside europe. The military commander behind europe's only genocide since world war two will spend the rest of his life in prison former bosnian. Serb commander ratko melodic lost his appeal against a conviction for genocide and war crimes. Alexander bresnan is journalists based in the western balkans on us following this story for inside europe. Can you remind us what happened in the former yugoslavia. First of all please sir. If and the shortest of terms after increasingly nationally sentiment appeared in the country with the weakening of the socialist rule the republics that were part of the country started breaking off one by one similarly to what happened in the soviet union however because of the republics were not perfectly ethnnic or. Buy it for that matter. They were very multicultural. The question of what kinds of nation states republics would be became very relevant so serbia as the strongest republic felt that all ethnic serbs in other republics needed to stay in yugoslavia in one way or another. This is why nationalist bosnian serb politicians launched them aggression on the then independent multicultural state of bosnia-herzegovina and this was in nineteen ninety. This was in. This was in one thousand nine hundred. Eighty two the declaration of independence came after a referendum in ninety-one and bosnia became fully recognized independent state on march first nineteen ninety two and then by april of the same year What you had is the bosnian. Serb para state that was formed which was aided and abetted by the yugoslav national army and the yugoslav war rather than serbian political top then launched this active aggression on the rest of the so. The army itself for the army of the bosnian serbs was led by about commodities. Verdict was good confirmed. Yesterday the verdicts marks the end of the un international criminal tribunal for the former yugoslavia. But it is the job really done. I mean for example to do the family of the missing people how they got closure. That's a really good question. I am not the one to speak for the victims necessarily all the personally. I had family members who were both killed and injured during the war but to go boxing to national criminal tribunal. I think bears remembering that. The icty was set up at a time of great hope and ambition for the join capabilities of the western world. Communism had just fall and the entire continent believed it was on the brink of a new era so truly believe this was the honest if somewhat lofty goal someone who set up the cord and those who chose to work in it or has justice been served completely. I think many would say no criminal criminal procedures. Not perfect and their success is based on a principle societies have accepted and that is that any change should rest on a convincing burden of evidence and then on top of that judges needed to be convinced that the evidence is sufficient for them to deliver some of the harshest verdict seen on the continent since world war two. but it's an imperfect process. I mean the court has existed for twenty eight years in the first dighton against lives was published twenty six years ago. It should be a point of pride for europe that in one way or another it could set an example the world when it comes to dealing with even the most complex where crimes trials so. Just bring it up to date. What did the judge in the hague's say in her disposition people forget the judiciary's just as much of a democratic institutions as all other institutions. I mean take. The supreme court doesn't example so therefore the censoring opinions like the one by presiding judge. Now are part and parcel affair judicial process. It should however be said that genocide trials hold a particular way both in terms of legal interpretation and their impact on the society for decades after the trial. judge as the senate as far as we're aware of at this moment based on an interpretation of the customs of war and the capabilities of its generals. The differs strongly from the interpretation. Many of the other judges involved in work runs. Trials genocide trials tied to the former yugoslavia. And i think that it will have dire consequences for the public rhetoric in the region just like when someone who supports actions say actions by russian president vladimir putin base and moral equivalences between the us and russia will have dire consequences on russian population and their fight for truth into serpa ganda. We'll do the sending opinion of the presiding judge. Even though at this moment i personally do not imbue it with any malcontent. Besides a different reading of the law. Thank you very much. Alexandra preser- journalist based in the western balkans speaking with me on wednesday to italy where the covert pandemic has prompted an exodus of city folk to forgotten corners of the country during the lockdown beautiful but often deserted mountain towns and villages have turned out to be idyllic alternatives to small apartments in rome or milan and some places are even offering subsidies to attract outsiders.

Germany has formally recognized as genocide the crimes committed by its colonial troops against the herero and nama people. This genocide took place at the beginning of the twentieth century in. What is now the southern african nation of namibia. Dwi africa correspondent. Kite neighbor is following the story for inside europe kite. Colonialism is Somewhat and neglected chapter in germany's history. I mean even germans know little about their colonial past. Can you fill us in. yes keith. Unfortunately german colonial history is seen as something of a forgotten and in some cases neglected post and this could be to do with the fact that german colonial history probably was a little bit shorter than that of the other colonial powers of the time. Germany lost all of its colonies as a consequence of the treaty of versailles at the end of will one and then in german classrooms anyway. A lot of the focus has been on what happened during world war two and of course the holocaust which essentially means lot of teaching in a history classes spends a lot of time focused on those events rather than looking at germany's colonial history. But that doesn't necessarily mean. The german colonial history is insignificant at the of its colonial empire. Germany had the third biggest colonial empire in africa. One of those colonies was namibia. Can you can you just explain what happened in the past and the extent of the atrocities sky. Namibia was one of the german colonies. The other ones being tanganyika in east africa togoland and cameroon in west africa but namibia in south west africa was one of germany's most important colonies as it were. It was also the place. Where a lot of germany's colonial brutality actually played out and the land that is now known as namibia became annexed by germany as a result of the eighteen eighty. Four eighteen eighty five berlin conference and as german settlers and forces moved in. They removed many people that were living there and seized land. And what. This essentially culminated in was a very dark period of colonialism between nineteen o four nine thousand nine hundred eight which is now known as the herero nama genocide by the German colonial forces and there is no way to overstate the absolute brutality. Of what happened with talking about the Herrero losing up to seventy five percent of their population during this period of time and just to put it into context talking about a time when german forces actually seized land. There were people shot an armed refugees within put into the first concentration camps of that period and forced to work on german colonial Projects to build up their colony so it is a small matter even though it did happen. More than one hundred years ago Let's bring you up to date on what what has been agreed between the two governments germany and namibia. Germany are already in two thousand and four agreed that it had a moral responsibility towards and especially the victims of the herero nama genocide and what has transpired is. The germany has decided to officially say that what happened between the years. One thousand nine hundred four nine hundred ninety eight was in fact genocide and that german forces were responsible for this and the key thing of course is that there was always a question of. Will there be reparations involved and to be clear. Germany has not to pay reparations to the descendants of the victims. what they have agreed is a one point. One billion euro aid package essentially to be paid over thirty years with the namibian government and that has essentially been agreed on on what has the response from the leaders of the herero and number of people being. It's a sensitive question this because throughout the negotiations. The negotiations themselves were criticized right from the start by certain leaders within the herero and nama communities because they did not see the namibian government as the vehicle in which to carry out these negotiations because they wanted to deal directly with the german government itself and the german government specifically wanted to deal on a bilateral basis with the namibian government herrero leaders as well as now leaders have said. They think that this aid package were is an insult and that this is not enough to compensate for the Land losses the loss of humans or dignity that the herero nama people suffered. Thanks a lot.
