"Story, you might expect Philip to stop at this point and take a vacation. To get away from it all and get a few minutes of asking in God's glory and his powerful working. Take a breather. Look at verse 40. But Philip was found at azotus. And ashdod in the Old Testament. And passing through, he preached in all the cities until they came to caesarea. The last point is simply this. In order to have a program of evangelism, he don't stop. You don't stop. You don't take a step back and say, well, I've done my work, so I'm going to take a vacation for the next month. The preaching of the evangelist continued, there is a road, a trade route called the way of the sea. And it starts along where there would be in Gaza and it goes all the way up. All the way up the coastline there of Israel. And that's where he went. He went up the road to ashdod, and then all the way to caesarea. And everywhere he went. He was the encourage you with this verse from glacial chapter 6. It says, let us not grow weary while doing good. For in due season, we shall reap if we do not lose heart. I want to challenge you to this morning with just a simple message about evangelism from this chapter. Would you be willing to go where God calls you to go? Some of you say no, I actually, I wouldn't, I'm not happy with, I'm happy where I am, and if God called me to go somewhere, I don't think I would obey. I ask you, would you please sacrifice that to God this morning? And if you were in a few moments, we'll have a time of quiet. And I ask you as you value your head to say, lord, okay, I will go where you call me to go. That's the first step. Secondly, would you be willing to preach from God's word? You might be very comfortable with your own opinions and your own ideas. I mean, everyone loves to share their ideas. But are you comfortable opening God's word and sharing with someone how they can come to Christ? And if not, I would challenge you to spend a week in God's word learning how to share the gospel with someone from God's word. Preach from

The Story Behind the Kushner Deals

"So I said to you, Iran Hezbollah and Hamas, of course, two of them, well know one of them, Hamas. Hamas is Palestinian, Hezbollah is theoretically Lebanese and Iran is Iran. So what percentage, I know there's no scientific answer, but meat in your estimation, which I respect, given this experience, what percentage of Palestinians would like Israel to disappear. Like that you run the government and B annihilated, not just disappear peacefully, be annihilated. Yeah, so I think I don't think it's very high. I think that what people want at this point is they want the opportunity to lead a better life and for their children to have opportunity. And one of the things we did again, I read about this in the book is we created a business plan for the West Bank and Gaza to basically show how you fix it, right? So it's basically 5 million people and take about 27 billion to double the GDP, decrease the poverty rate in half, create a million jobs, reduce unemployment rate at the single digits. Not that hard for what we did is we created a conference in Bahrain that was hosted by the king of Bahrain. We had Saudis, we had Emirates. We had businessmen from all over the world show up to say, we're willing to invest in the West Bank in Gaza and help these people, but our problem is not the Israeli government, our problem is the fact that there's no fair judiciary.

"A ceasefire so quickly? You are a 100% right. The operation this time lasted 55 hours, the reason why it ended after such a short time is really very simple. It's because Israel reached its goals. The first and the main goal was to thwart the immediate threat of those anti tank strategic missiles, which Palestinian Islamic Jihad to do. So this was the primary goal. And the secondary goal was to target the senior commanders of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad in order to make sure that it takes a long while before they return to their military compatibility for the next time. So I would also say that this time the IDF Israel were focused primarily and only on the placid Islamic Jihad targets. And as I mentioned before, Hamas is in charge of civilian life. So for instance, infrastructure roads, bridges, clinics, different service centers, different operations, the previous operations which you mentioned, Israel targeted those infrastructure buildings. Since we're talking about an organization that has no relevance and no connection to infrastructure, of course, the targets were very surgical and very accurate. I would also like to say that there were also very low numbers of civilians who were uninvolved were killed. Although we did see human shield phenomenon return over and over again, I'll just explain to our viewers that the human shield is a situation in which a terrorist understands or here is maybe above him some sort of a drone and understands that he's under surveillance. So the easiest thing to do is to grab a child in the arms and walk with that child understanding and realizing that Israel will not target someone with a civilian next to him or a child which he's holding. So this is something that we did see here and it is similar to Hamas tactics. Thank you again for leading us through this is a very complicated and very urgent situation. Thank you.

"Tone for the operation. It shows the timing. It shows what kind of operation we'll have. And it also shows less the conditions to end the operation. We had, as I can see, a very good amount of international legitimacy for Israel's self defense and our image worldwide at the end of the day really was not harmed. As for the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, they really failed in this operation. For number one, they failed to position themselves as the leaders of the Palestinian resistance because at the end of the day, they were left on their own. Hamas did not showing the fun, other organizations did not fire at Israel from Lebanon, for example, where we know there are other Palestinian organizations, so they were left alone. And this was a very clear message to them of maybe mistrust, maybe not receiving them as leaders, the second reason they failed is that they are an Iranian backed organization, which means they get funding from Iran. They get directives from Iran. Actually, there are leadership and Tehran at the same time where the military operation took place and we spoke here in Israel that's while military and leadership is in Tehran, enjoying coffee and restaurants and sleeping in a 5 star hotels and Tehran, their commanders here on the ground are really not doing so well. So the fact that they are in uranium proxy actually distant them for many Arab countries so they did not gain support from them. The third reason I want to claim that the Palestinian Islamic Jihad failed is that, you know, they gave a name to the operation from their perspective. And the name they chose was uniting France and the implication of that was that they're uniting their just cause to fight in Gaza and the West Bank in reality they failed because the West Bank was quiet, east Jerusalem were quiet, the Arabs in Israel were quiet and therefore they did not manage to do a unification of the France just like they aimed. And I would say the four reason for the failure was from an operational perspective. Look, they fired more than 1000 rockets in three days, which only caused the end minimal damage, the Israeli side. Now 1000 rockets is a very big number. It's a large number of rockets. Of course, I don't treat it in an easy way, but the damage was minimal. So they had nothing to show. Nothing to present themselves as leaders in the field of ammunition and military success. They really failed operationally. Moreover, more than a 160 rockets, which they fired towards Israel, you turned in the air because the rocket goes high and then flies to its target, but 160 rockets U turned and went back to Gaza by doing so they killed innocent people in Gaza. They wounded others, they created damage. So I would say they were not really successful operationally as well. So these are the four reasons I believe the Islamic Jihad failed. You wanted to ask me about the difference between the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and Hamas and it is a good question because there is major differences. There are major differences between the two. For one, Hamas is leading is the leader of Gaza, which means they have a lot of responsibility, primarily civilian responsibility. They have to feed 2 million Palestinians on an area of 356 km². They have to provide services, welfare services, education services, medical services, for them for Hamas, the humanitarian access is critical for their survival in Gaza. Before this operation took place, Israel made sure, for example, that every month, millions of shekels are going in the Gaza Strip. In return, Hamas promised quiet. So of course it wasn't Hamas's interest to make sure that the Islamic Jihad launched operation will be terminated as quickly as possible. Of course, I'll mention that there are 15,000 gazans work on a daily basis in Israel. So Hamas has here a lot to lose a lot more than the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, which are basically a loose canon, there are challenging Hamas. They don't have any civilian responsibilities. They get their orders from Tehran and basically they can decide when to fire, how far to fire, how many rockets to fire, and so on and so forth. Just on the arsenal part, I will just say that although Islamic Jihad is not a tiny organization, they have 10,000 soldiers, militants, and they have similar number of rockets, Hamas is a lot bigger and more experienced and more trained and more developed militarily, and they have other kind of qualities, operational qualities, so this is another difference between them. But as I said, the main difference between them is really the fact that Hamas has civilian responsibilities, which the Palestinian Islamic Jihad do not have whatsoever. Finally, I just want to go back for a second to the operation because the biggest challenge that Israel has and this meets us time and time again in every operation. All war, not only in Gaza, but also in Lebanon. And I'm talking about the very densely populated areas which terror groups choose to place their weapons in their caches. Their storages, whether it's in hospitals or mosques or underground civilian houses. And by the way, where I can also share with you that Palestinian Islamic Jihad, just like Hamas, has dozens of terror tunnels which are used to flee terrorists or to store rockets and there are really located underneath civilian areas. So this is a huge challenge for Israel, which does whatever it can to prevent some kind of civilian casualties, by the way, in talking about Hamas, which stayed out of the fight this time. Of course, there have been other times in the past when it has not stayed out of the fight, and it has very much endangered the civilian population. It is ostensibly charged with protecting. But let me move on or back to the circumstances of the ceasefire that was just negotiated yesterday. There have been a number of violent exchanges between Gaza based terror groups and Israel over the years since Israel's unilateral withdrawal from Gaza in 2005, major exchanges have included operation cast lead in 2008, 2009 operation protective edge in 2014. And of course, what occurred in May of 2021, the Hamas Israel conflict. The latest confrontation with Islamic Jihad was significantly shorter than all of these establishment of a ceasefire. Which in the past has really been a protracted process was accomplished in a matter of hours, it seems. Yesterday, what changed this time? Why was it possible to bring about

"On Friday, August 5th, the Israeli defense forces launched operation breaking dawn in response to days of saber rattling by Palestinian Islamic Jihad, an Iranian backed terror group threatening to attack Israel. The Israeli operation struck several terror targets in the northern Gaza Strip, killing atop a Palestinian Islamic Jihad commander, who was responsible for launching hundreds of rockets at Israeli civilians during the Gaza conflict in May of 2021. In this conversation with my colleague Jason isaacson recorded on Monday, AJC Jerusalem director avital leibovich offered some answers to what happened and why. Take a listen. We're eager to hear your assessment of the security situation as it stands now. As well as what led up to the Israeli defense forces operation breaking dawn, which began on Friday. And the extent and the impact of the attacks launched by the Iranian backed terror group, Palestinian Islamic Jihad. I have other questions for you as well. But let's begin with the current state of play is the ceasefire that was announced yesterday still holding and is this latest crisis over at least for now. So thank you, Jason, for this opportunity, the negotiations, lasted the whole day yesterday until they reached the final agreement to a ceasefire. The ceasefire came into effect last night, my time in Israel, 1130 p.m.. However, I can tell you that there were two violations immediately after the ceasefire, the first one took place 8 minutes after the ceasefire and the second one took 15 minutes after the ceasefire, both of them had to do with rocket fire, but after that it has been quiet ever since. I have to tell you that personally, I still have my shelter prepared. All the windows are locked because when the leader of the Islamic Jihad in Gaza says that maybe there will be some circumstances in which the slowing Jihad will choose when to fire again rockets to Israel, then this means that we are in a temporary ceasefire. We still have to be alert here in Israel, but today was a quiet day, which is, of course, a positive thing. Let's go back to last week. What did trigger the idea of operation on Friday? What was and what is now the nature of the threat posed to Israel by Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Also, how does Islamic Jihad differ from the terror group Hamas, which, of course, rules Gaza, is there a difference? A lot of big questions. I'll try to break them down and of course answer a complete answer. But some aside is a senior Islamic Jihad leader who was arrested by Israel on Friday. A senior Islamic Jihad official told Al Jazeera immediately following this arrest, is quote crossing the red lines and that quote our military wing will respond to Israel's crimes. Basically what we've seen here is the Palestinian Islamic Jihad tried to connect to arenas, obviously Gaza, where they're located in, and the West Bank where Israel arrested this study. They wanted to say by this connection that they are responsible for both the oversee both areas. Israel naturally naturally would never comply with such an attempt. I said the terrorists 61 years old has been behind bars in Israel for 15 years. In addition to his being an inspiration, a jihadist inspiration, I would say, to young Palestinians, I can tell you that it's two sons died in clashes with the IDF in 2002, his wife was also arrested and if you remember, the recent attack Jason, we had in Tel Aviv, a couple of months ago where the terrorists just went into the streets and sprayed fire to a few restaurants. And this terrorist is actually a family member of asahi. So basically we are talking about the well connected family to other terror groups in judean samaria and the West Bank and also in Gaza as well. So this brings us to the fact that the Palestinian Islamic Jihad actually plans some kind of a deadly terror attack against Israeli targets. Israeli government, while not wanting to take any chances, actually shut down all the roads, and gave very strict restrictions to the communities to the civilians living in the communities on the outskirts of Gaza, and I'm talking about something like 30,000 Israelis that were under some sort of a lockdown for four days for very long days. Now, the main source of income in that area is agriculture. So you can imagine these people could not go to their fields to work, many of them have different kinds of crops, which of course obviously they lost. Some raise animals of different sorts. So this was quite a situation for these 30,000 people who live in that area. But what kind of really activity were they planning against an Israeli target? So according to the Israeli intelligence, we understand that the Palestinian Islamic Jihad wanted to use the precise missile called cornet in order to target probably a bus of people, maybe a bus of soldiers, maybe a bus of workers in the area or anything of that sort. And that's why Israel decided after these four days of a lockdown, Israel decided to preemptively strike the Palestinian Islamic Jihad and prevent this attack. By doing so, by the way, also restraining other terror organizations in Gaza. Of course, we have Hamas in Gaza, but we also have other organizations across the region, which were very, very focused on how Israelis acting, what kind of weapons it is using and what kind of success rates does it have. So we're talking about a total of 55 hours of military operation in the course of this operation, Jason, I can tell you that more than a 165 Jihad sites, military outposts launching pads, manufacturing warehouses from waters were all targeted. But the most severe blow that the Palestinian Islamic Jihad received was actually the senior leadership of this organization was eliminated. And within the few hours, the first few hours of this operation, you could see really situation of unclarity and confusion from their perspective, they really did not know how to run the operation on the ground, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad militants. They really were confused. You could see they're really had no commander on the ground. And in addition to this, I can tell you that the Iron Dome batteries which were deployed all over the country because of course there was also concern that rocket fire will hit remote areas like Jerusalem and Tel Aviv and maybe even beyond Tel Aviv, so batteries of Iron Dome have been employed throughout the country. It had an amazing success of 96% and talk about that later. From an Israeli perspective, I can tell you that from day one of the operation, Israel set the

"Since Russia ordered its forces even further into Ukraine than previously on February 24th, other conflicts have rather struggled for headlines, even the conflict which for some decades has inflamed global opinion like no other. Late last week, Israel launched air strikes on targets in Gaza. As of this broadcast, a ceasefire brokered by Egypt very shortly after hostilities commenced appears to be holding. According to Gaza's health ministry, at least 45 Palestinians were killed among them 16 children. I went outside and found my husband covered in blood and dust. My only son shouted mummy, mummy. I am covered in blood. All my daughters were shouting and crying, where are you mummy? And these two twins were unconscious, not awake. It was very far from the first such Israeli raid and it is depressingly difficult to believe that it will be the last, but this one was something of a departure from previous similar operations. It was not principally directed against Hamas, Israel's principle, Gaza based adversary of recent years, but against Palestinian Islamic Jihad, two of whose senior commanders take a jabari and Khalid bansur were among the fatalities. And it was not as Israel often presents such things a response to rocket barrages launched from behind defenses which surround Gaza, but at least as Israel sold it a preemptive maneuver designed to deter exactly this. Our fight is not with the people of Gaza. Islamic Jihad is an Iranian proxy that wants to destroy the State of Israel and kill innocent Israelis. The head of Islamic Jihad is in teheran as we speak. We will do whatever it takes to defend our people. Although it turned out, with limited success, Islamic Jihad launched hundreds of rockets at Israel. Many were intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome air defense system, but 13 Israelis were treated for minor injuries. It may well be the case that Islamic Jihad caused more casualties among Palestinians, multiple reports suggest that some of their rockets fell inside Gaza. The immediate build up to this round of fighting began last week in Janine when Israeli security forces apprehended bassam Al sadi leader of the West Bank branch of Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Al sadi's arrest by some counts the 8th of his career occasioned violence as it was taking place, a Palestinian teenager was shot dead after reportedly throwing an explosive device towards Israeli soldiers. In what seems to have been a long planned operation, Israel then went after Al sadi's Islamic Jihad colleagues in Gaza. Palestinian Islamic Jihad usually known by its last two names, was founded in 1981 by exiled Palestinian students in Egypt, predating the now much bigger and more powerful Hamas by a few years. While both groups receive guns and money from Iran, Islamic Jihad are even more militantly rejectionist than Hamas. They have never stood for election and appear to have no ambition of governing even as ineptly or corruptly as Hamas do. Islamic Jihad's military wing the Al quds brigades is believed to be maybe a few thousand strong. Islamic Jihad's current overall leader is ziad Al nahal, who is generally thought to be resident in Lebanon or Syria, apparently unknown on embracing the martyrdom he urges upon others. But he was in Tehran this past weekend meeting with Iranian officials including president Ebrahim raisi and revolutionary guard commander major general Hossein salami. Al Mahal's statement in response to the Israeli strikes included a shout out to as he put it the Arab and Islamic people that stood with us in solidarity. Well, up to a point. And here is something else which is different about this Israel versus Palestine clash, and which is likely to grow steadily more different about future such eruptions. The governments of the Arab and Islamic people care a lot less about Palestine than they once did, or at least pretended they did in order to rile up the Arab and Islamic people and wind up America. In recent years, several Arab countries, Bahrain, Morocco, Sudan, the United Arab Emirates, have normalised or re normalized relations with Israel and more will follow, possibly even including Saudi Arabia. Israel has become an increasingly strategically and economically important regional partner, not least because of shared suspicions of Islamic Jihad's patrons in Iran. Palestine has become increasingly regarded as a tedious and intractable mess. And not unreasonably. Even if a given Israeli government was serious about negotiating a settlement with their Palestinian neighbors, there is presently a grave shortage of people they could negotiate seriously with. On the West Bank, elderly and ineffectual Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas is now 17 years into a four year term and his Fatah party have become justly proverbial for graft and incompetence. Gaza is misruled by a mob of theocratic fanatics, chaotically pledged to Israel's destruction to the exclusion of most other concerns, although some Israeli observers have perceived grounds for slight optimism in Hamas relative rhetorical and military restraint, this last week or so. Israeli operations continue on the West Bank on Tuesday morning Ibrahim Al nabulsi, a commander in the Al aqsa martyrs brigades, a militia vaguely linked to Fatah and sort of allies of Islamic Jihad, was killed along with two other people in a raid on a house in nablus. Hopes that this will discourage others from following in nabulsi's footsteps or those of jabari and mansur, are doubtless forlorn. But so other hopes of those who do, from monocle 24, I'm Andrew Muller..

"All our goals were achieved, said Israel's prime minister yair lapid, who claimed that the entire military command of Palestinian Islamic Jihad had been wiped out. The leader of BJ, ziad Al nahal, meanwhile, also claimed victory on pro Iranian TV. Conspicuously absent from the discussion was Hamas, the militants turned political party often involved in conflict in the region. And whoever claims gains in this latest round of violence, it's the people of Gaza, who have borne the losses. The backstory to this started on Monday of last week when the Israeli army arrested an Islamic Jihad commander in the occupied West Bank. Great carlstrom is a Middle East correspondent for The Economist. That led to several days of concerns in Israel about possible retaliation from Islamic Jihad in Gaza. They were restrictions imposed on Israeli residents who live near the border. That retaliation never happened, but on Friday, Israel assassinated an Islamic Jihad commander in Gaza, and that was enough to start more than two days of back and forth fire across the border. And how serious has this flare up then? Unfortunately, there are a lot of examples to compare it to in Gaza, of course, there have been four wars in the territory since 2008, and then a number of smaller shorter rounds of escalation as well. This one ranks on the smaller and shorter side, but still had deadly consequences. There were 44 people killed in Gaza, according to the Palestinian health ministry. Two of them were Islamic Jihad commanders, the original rationale for this is real saying it was a preemptive strike against the group. Also among the dead were 15 children, some as young as 5 years old, the Palestinians say they were killed by Israeli air strikes, whereas the Israeli army says they were killed by rockets fired from Gaza that malfunctioned and landed inside of the strip. On the Israeli side, there were about a thousand rockets and mortars fired in two days according to the army. Most of those either fell short and landed in Gaza, or were intercepted by Iron Dome by the Israeli missile defense system. And so there were no fatalities reported on the Israeli side. So this is primarily a conflict then with Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Tell me about that group. They are the number two militant group in Gaza. Of course, the territory has been controlled for 15 years by Hamas, which seized power in 2007 after winning a victory in Palestinian legislative elections. And they are the dominant force in Gaza Islamic Jihad plays second fiddle. Ostensibly there are a lot of similarities between these groups. They're both militant Islamist factions. They have their roots back in the 1980s. They were founded, of course, to fight Israel. But there are a number of differences as well, where Hamas is essentially the sovereign in Gaza has had to make a number of changes or compromises to its ideology over the years in order to preserve its grip on power. Islamic Jihad has not had to do that. It's outside of the governing system. It doesn't wield political power really in Gaza. It's extremely close to Iran and receives much of its funding from Iran. And in fact, the group's leader was in Tehran last week while all of this was happening in Gaza. And so while in theory these groups work together and they have what they say is a joint operations room where they coordinate military operations against Israel. In practice, they're often competitors in Gaza they compete for resources for support for men to join their military wings. And so with all that in mind, where is Hamas in all that it's normally Hamas that we hear about when conflict flares up? That was certainly the case last May when there was an 11 day war in Gaza, whether or not Hamas gets involved is usually the deciding factor in whether these rounds escalation only lasts for a couple of days or whether they become more protracted conflicts. But Hamas has the ruling party in Gaza has a number of considerations. One is sort of foreign policy. It has been working over the past few years. The build relations with Egypt with some of the Gulf states, and none of whom were particularly keen on seeing this escalate into a lengthy protracted war. And so there was pressure on the group from outside to sit out the fighting here. There was also some pressure from within. There's public opinion that it has to consider. And it's been barely a year since the last war, much of what was destroyed or damaged during that war has not been rebuilt. And so there is internal pressure on the group as well from the populace in Gaza, which does not want to see this escalate into another round of fighting. So it has various considerations that it has to take into account. And to some extent, it's probably not unhappy to see Islamic Jihad. Weakened a bit. The group differs quite often with Hamas on tactics and strategy. It can be a nuisance sometimes to the Hamas leadership because it is a bit more antagonistic or aggressive when it comes to starting rounds of fighting with Israel. And so Hamas chose to sit this one out and on some level probably not displeased with the outcome. So what does that tell you about Hamas? And its role as a political party more than a sort of ideological force. I think the main thing that tells you is that the group as the ruler in Gaza has to be a bit more pragmatic than it would have been 20 years ago when it was a militant group that didn't wield power. It has over the years made some rhetorical gestures in public towards the possibility of either what's called the hood a long-term truce with Israel, which would offer not formal recognition, not a permanent promise of peace, but a lengthy promise to stop fighting in return for using the blockade. It's also expressed some willingness in recent years. Towards a negotiated solution with Israel, the group's leadership has said if the Palestinian people were to agree on a two state solution using the pre 1967 borders, then we would go along with that. Now, there are certainly people in Israel and elsewhere who doubt its sincerity about these things. But there is a pragmatism that has grown in Hamas over the past 15 years when it comes to these sorts of ideological questions. And what about the view from Israel? What are the considerations there and how do you see this playing out? There are political considerations on their side as well, of course they're heading for an election in November, their 5th since 2019. The most recent one produced a very unwieldy broad based power sharing government that only lasted about a year it collapsed the spring. And so yair lapid, the centrist, who's now the caretaker prime minister, is facing a battle for election in November against Benjamin Netanyahu, the wants and perhaps future prime minister. What this means for lapid's political fortunes, I think perhaps a bit too early to say on the one hand, this was the first time he faced a security crisis as prime minister and he can certainly point to this and say we dealt with it. We ended it quickly and tried to use this as a political selling point in his favor. On the other hand, I don't think it fundamentally changes the reality of the race here, which is that it's a deeply divided electorate and this election will come down to a referendum on whether or not you want Netanyahu to come back as prime minister. So I think more likely than not, it doesn't really change a race that is focused on personalities and on economics more than security issues. And what about the view from people who live in Gaza, who go through these cycles of violence. For people in Gaza, of course, this really means nothing beyond more suffering after 15 years of siege, the economy has collapsed in Gaza, the infrastructure has collapsed. And this has become a problem that no one wants to fix Israel in Egypt. They're quite happy with the status quo. The Palestinian authority, which governs the West Bank, wants nothing to do with Gaza and Hamas doesn't want to make the sorts of compromises that might jeopardize its grip on power. So in the short term the ceasefire is likely to hold, no one has an interest in breaching it. But inevitably, as we've seen time and again for the past 15 years, it will not hold forever, and 2 million people living in Gaza will once again be held hostage

There's a lot that's changing with how to make sure your site is performance an up to google standards. There is a little discrepancy about what actually matters when it comes to technical. Seo talked to me what you think are the technical seo skills that you actually need Man that is a little bit of a loaded question. I'm less hardcore than than a lot of seo's on this. I think you need whatever's goes. You need to work on the systems that you're working on. I'm a big proponent of like learn as you go. And i'm not gonna tell someone like i wanna learn techno gaza what you gotta go learn python javascript. Imbaba because you don't like if you're not working on that stuff if it's not interesting to you you don't wanna learn it. You really don't have to so. I think that there's a debate here of you know what's the prerequisite to go be a tactical. Seo de need to have engineering skills. Do you need to have the ability to understand and manipulate data. You know when you're prioritizing the two of them the analysis part as opposed to sort of the technical know-how which one do you think is more important for us ios analysis in general good analysts. Pretty much always make good. Seo's the matter their role in seo. Someone can look at the data. Look at the issues than just figure out. You know what is going on so when you're thinking about what makes a great analyst in seo. What are some of the skills required there when generally what do you think is the right tool.

I've seen people do amazing things in excel. I've seen people do amazing things in python is. It's all about trying to figure out an easier way to get to the the right data.

Colonel Richard Kemp Says Jihadists, China, and Russia Are Celebrating the Afghanistan Crisis

"You know, we're seeing what we face now is a a terrorist threat coming out of Afghanistan. That is greater than the terrorist threat before 9 11 jihadists around the world have been celebrating. The events and not least the president. Not this is a jihadist, but the president of Pakistan, Imran Khan, who himself celebrated it, he should be celebrating because Pakistan significantly funded The Taliban throughout the campaign, while at the same time being paid vast amounts of money by America and Britain. Um, but they're celebrating around the world. Hamas in Gaza are celebrating What's happening here? Um, and they will be re energize. They will have to see that their recruitment has been boosted. They will be reinvigorated and they will launched attacks around the world against our countries, as they did really when they were being inspired by the Islamic state. Al Qaeda and the Islamic state are strong in Afghanistan. At the moment, Al Qaeda fought alongside the Taliban in recent battles. They will operate freely. Just doesn't matter what the Taliban say to you. They will allow the Al Qaeda in the Islamic state to operate freely there, and they can operate more freely than they could before 9 11. Because they know there's no fear of Western intervention. Now that's finished. That's history. There's not going to happen again. They know that and so they'll be even bolder than before and jihadist from around the world will flock into Afghanistan. To train prepare and launch attacks against the West. So The state of the terrorist threat is higher than it was at the height of the Islamic state's power when they controlled large parts of Syria and of Iraq. That's just one aspect of The situation. There is no one really who is celebrating this situation more than Russia and China. They're the greatest cheerleaders for what's happened.

Does that mean re training for new jobs. What does it mean to give them a new perspective. Yes this mean training. Of course for those people are working and specifically the coal mining but also called facilities but also simply attract new industries to exactly come to these regions on one of these regions in eastern germany. For example tesla is at the moment of building a huge facility for the production of electric vehicles and also for batteries at a european climate meeting this month. Climate activists cheered germany's new plan but they were disappointed that chancellor angela merkel did not announce increased funding for climate finance for developing countries. Germany's the fourth largest economy in the world. Jiu think germany should be doing more to help. Smaller economies adapt to a changing climate. I think all countries all developed countries have to do more. But i need to say that. Germany has done a lot in the past. We have been financing highest chair of all industrialized countries. So we believe others have to jump in now as in the future of their pay a fair share of the whole amount. Germany has one of the most ambitious plans in the world now when it comes to lowering carbon emissions. What do you think. Germany can teach the rest of the world about balancing difficult trade-offs and doing what's necessary to decrease emissions. Maybe most going to talk to to learn is reggie should have started. The cost would have been low office. Transformation process go ahead and fly. Spot is the state secretary at germany's federal ministry for the environment. He's been speaking to us from berlin. Thanks a lot johann in ireland. They're now saying something that hasn't been seen in three hundred years a pair of cranes nesting in a bog. That's caused for big celebration there. Mark mkhori is the lead ecologists at board amona. A company that owns the peat bog or the cranes were spotted. He joins us now. Mark two cranes spotted in a bog in the irish midlands apparently nesting or preparing to breed. Why is this such a big deal. It's really exciting for us. Because these birds haven't been a scene greeding in ireland. For about fielder years. They unfortunately went extinct back then because of haunting and we haven't seen them breeding since and so we occasionally get these birds appearing in the wintertime but it was really exciting to see a few words appear in one of our boggs in the springtime and dan starting to display on starting to build a nest. Unfortunately we haven't seen any chicks yet. What we're really excited about this year. Because the birds actually came back these are migratory birds so they. They disappeared off the nest site for the wintertime. What's really exciting. That they've come back. So what are these birds. Look like i mean how big are they. They're very big under very big in an irish context because in ireland. We don't have that many big words so they would be about four foot high. You're talking nearly six foot. Wingspan and This nearly twice the size of the hearn our biggest wetland bird which is about to tie and so if you saw it on a ballg or in the distance in a wet and it would be obvious that it's a crean something really unusual. I understand that this is a huge deal because cranes feature so prominently in irish mythology and history. Tell us a little bit about that. If you look at the book of kells there is a weltman birds or waterbird featured in knox with a long neck and i read patch on its head. So the monks that drew the book. Kale's at that were familiar with crayons and seemingly the crans were revered when they were present in ireland and their nesting places were considered sacred spaces. We see evidence of that because in some of our leaks we still have islands that refer back to the cran. They will be called cores. Which is the irish word. Suseya of the korean this particular pair that have appeared on this peat bog. I understand the peat bog. Had been re wetted or rehabilitated. By your company board. Dimona what is re wetted mean or. Damone are the irish company fats. Produce pates and we were to produce pete's for energy to be generated intellect and because in ireland. We didn't have many resources. Such as coal are even such as timber. We did have a lot of balls so we developed are back at the start of the aristide's obviously to to harvest. Pete you need to grant it.

"Halima condie in nairobi. Imagine having a handy guide to the united states as a new immigrant. One that tells you how to navigate this strange new place and one that also includes the sights and smells that you'd most miss from back home iranian american writer roy hawkins scripted. This out. Her book is called a beginner's guide to america for the immigrants and the curious. My colleague marco werman spoke with her hocken was at her home in connecticut. Here's marco so i gotta say some of the small details you've observed about the immigrant experience. I actually connect with myself. I notice for example. The bounty in this country when i returned from working in west africa for three years like just the variety and options of breakfast cereal in the supermarket aisle. So i'm wondering what are some of the things that still stop you in your tracks since you arrived in the us some thirty five years ago. What you just pointed out that you know we. Sometimes in america become unaware of diversity that exists not just in our media in our options of reading books publications but also you foods in supermarkets and aisles and aisles of cereal and biscuits and breakfast foods and you know it's easy to be turned off by all of it and say you know americans just have too much but what i try to do at have done in in the past couple of decades thinking through what america means to me is to kind of extract. What all that really means beyond variety. And what i've come to is that it's all about choice. America gives us choices. America enables us to look at what's available and make our own decisions for. That's the positive side. It's about choice I think so because alternatively if we didn't live in a democratic country and you know that was my life once we would not have the choice. The choice was would be imposed on us. You know the varieties would diminish greatly in the numbers and we would have it in some ways. It a bizarre way easier because we would not have the burden of considering a balancing and making a conscious decision of our own for which we will have to bear responsibility so for what it was like In one thousand nine hundred five when you emigrated you're much younger from iran and to now be in this place that was both perplexing and at the same time place that provided safety and Something new that i encounter with america is such a ubiquitous experience. No matter how long passes or has passed between my own arrival and others who have arrived more recently seem to share that experiencing common. I remember being completely disoriented as if my jet lag wasn't just a matter of time difference but was also a matter of continental difference emotional difference intellectual difference and i think i was walking around perfectly disoriented and dizzy for weeks weeks which is what Others who have arrived far more recently than i affirm and say that their experiences in the same. What about the flip side were. There are a couple of things in america where he said That makes total sense. Do you recall the first time. Maybe you had that experience completely. I recall being in the first year of college which came a few months after i had arrived. A boy asked me out and we we were on the beach walking and for a moment he put his hand on my shoulder and at first i panicked because i thought oh. We're going to get arrested because we're not migrate walking together and we're not related. But then i looked at him. And i looked at the beach. I realized that. I'm not where i used to be in america and and that was liberating. It was a wonderful new discovery about being out and about without anxiety. Speaking with poet and writer royal cocky and who writes about the immigrant experience in the us when you left iran in nineteen five The country is going through a lot of change. Do you ever compare the lives of your family. Members today in the us versus frenzy left behind. Iran i do and it's a painful reminder of what an accident are birds and our circumstances lead our lives to become that in other words i simply by being able to leave iran under completely accidental circumstances. Because you know had we applied for our exit visas a couple of months earlier or a couple of months later we may never have received them. You know the idea of this book came to me in two thousand sixteen. When trump gave some of his early speeches about his plans for immigration and one of the ideas in one of the speeches was we cannot accept or we should not accept immigrants. Who don't speak english or have no skills into this country. And i gasped hearing this because i thought oh my god had i been the royal. The person that i was this year trying to get into. I would not have gotten so Because i had neither english nor any skills. So i would have stayed. I would have been kept out of the country that now. I believe to be my home. So what i'm trying to say. Is that the injustice of it. All whether you know barred by circumstances inside on or far potentially by the decision of an american president My life could have been entirely a something different from what it is today. I want to mention also roy. A you're you're an activist. And i know you've taken an interest in the rise of vocal feminism in your native iran is specifically iran's kind of metoo moment So as he speak about what immigrants to the us Experience wondering what women especially might be seeing and learning from the movements in iran and the us right now. I hope what they're learning. Is that first and foremost. Feminism is not a local phenomenon that it is a destiny for all women everywhere around the globe that we are all as women as world citizens are in this fight together And there's a sisterhood. That binds us all together. And if we do not support us if we do not support each other and don't win our battles are struggles against gender inequality all of us at the end suffer writer and poet roya cocky and is the author of the book beginner's guide to america for the immigrant. And the curious. Roy a great meeting. You thank you for your time thank you. I enjoyed it. And here's where we say goodbye for the day but we're always online at the world's dot org the world comes to you from the non and bill harris studio in boston.

"I'm carol hills. This is the world where a co production of gbh boston and pr x. The top story of the day is the ongoing conflict in israel and gaza. We wanted to zero in on gaza for a few minutes. It's a narrow coastal strip sandwiched between israel and egypt a small enclave packed with some two million people. Israeli air strikes are targeting hamas militants there but because gaza is so densely populated. Ordinary civilians are paying the price. Fresh water is in short supply. Sewage systems have been decimated sending wastewater into the streets and people are scrambling to find shelter and basic necessities. Matias schmila directs the united nations relief and works agency for palestinian refugees in gaza. He joins us from gaza city. Matias what has today been like for you and those you work with for me this like war since a few days want i mean by that is there is a constant firing of rockets from here followed by severe retaliatory strikes. People are terrified at least once an hour. Every second hour there is military confrontation that affects concentration. And what we do. That's one bit and we own nra are increasingly dealing with people who have fled their homes of here. Renou have forty eight thousand people in fifty eight of two hundred seventy eight schools looking for safety. The blue flag of the united for them means of safe place than at home. So we're dealing with you know the fear in that way then. Of course there's injuries. I was informed an hour goal. That one of our health workers but very badly injured on his way home from one of our health centers. He was just in the wrong place at the wrong time and is now in the icu. In hospitals injuries off. Help us get a sense of the scale of the humanitarian disaster. There i mean what sort of infrastructure for ordinary citizens existed two weeks ago. That is simply no longer there. We've had several primary healthcare centres level to the ground to including one of s. And that's my sounds on frontier doctorswithoutborders s. Exactly we've had the central laboratory conducting the covid nineteen tests directly hit. Well i don't know if it was directly it but it's out of action now. There's no testing capacity. Another impact is the thousands of people in our schools huddling together often in very confined spaces so one of our big worries. Is that our schools will become now centers for spreading the covid nineteen virus now shops up beginning to have empty shelves so increasing. The i think able getting worried about. Will there be enough food. Will there be enough. Electricity fuels of lies are going down. The central power plant depends on fuel so fuel averages per day down to six or eight hours from ten to twelve before the war and going down i understand. We'll be out of fuel in a few days wa- trays problem and that has to do with the damaged infrastructure. Also these other nations plants and connecting pipes sense on being destroyed our humanitarian corridors open and his aide getting into gaza in contrast to the twenty fourteen war on the borders have been completely shut although with one small modification. We apparently did get some fuel today. Five fuel trucks so that was the first time in eight nine days that the border was open for us but then they immediately closed that again. We were supposed to bring some food trucks in as well but we were then told it was getting too dangerous so we are into a second week with this face completely. Shut off from the rest of the world. We've also not had florida's to move people in and out and maybe as importantly with in gaza this constant fighting and their soul be no agreed periods where we can move more freely so where is humanitarian relief coming from seoul far and i believe it's the same for others here but rise the biggest player in gaza. We are having to rely on what we had brought in before. The war started the big sorts. Have these for these fifty eight schools that have turned into emergency shelters. If the border doesn't open there will be a shortage of water there and of course the longer it takes. We estimate that later this week by thursday friday people will need food. What is morale like the state of mind among ordinary civilians in gaza. Really i think people are afraid wandering. Where's the next bomb gonna come from. I think frustration two three weeks ago. There was actually a bit of a period of optimism related to the palestinian elections in a very high number of people who can vote registered over ninety percent of the population that can vote be registered menu of them. Young people source time voter. So there was a sense of maybe. This is the beginning of a new political process that went down the drain and now we are in the middle of a war and many parents often me about their main warriors. That children so first of all. How do you explain this constant loud noise. i'll explain buildings in your neighborhood collapsing. No people dying. And how do you explain what the future will bring. So i think it's the combination of fear of warri about the future that is really bombing People's mood martinez. Schmila directs unra the united nations relief and works agency for palestinian refugees. He's been speaking to us from gaza. Thank you thank you. Very much for this overturning. Some argue that washington has clearly picked a side in the ongoing battle in the middle east. The us sends israel roughly three point three billion dollars. Annually in foreign military financing the biden administration recently approved the sale of seven hundred. Thirty five million dollars worth of weapons israel. The proposed sale was announced before the current hostilities and is still pending zaghawa. Hudson has been examining the transfers of american weapons to israel. She's with the carnegie endowment for international peace and she joins us now zaha three point three billion dollars a year. That's a big number. Put that in context. How much military financing does the. Us provide to other countries in the region. So with respect to foreign military financing israel is receiving about fifty two percent of all foreign military financing and that's more than all other countries combined that are receiving that assistance and another thing that's very exceptional about the security assistance that israel gets is that it also gets a percentage that it can use for purchases within its own country. No other foreign government is allowed to purchase from outside the us but israel's allowed to do that so that it can develop its own capabilities today. Israel has become a leading exporter of weapons making around nine billion dollars a year. Now i wanna talk about the so-called lahey amendments those laws meant to stop the us from giving military help to countries that violate human rights. How is that law applied to weapons sales to israel so actually believe he laws call for a couple of things. I it calls for vetting of military units receiving us security assistance and it calls for cutting off assistance to police and military units that are receiving us security assistance if they're using it to violate human rights with israel. The problem with applying the leahey laws is that it's very difficult to trace security assistance that the us has given israel. Israel gets grants and a portion of it is cash and cashes fungible therefore. It's difficult to track and trace so if a person who's aggrieved by a human rights abuse from israel tries to complain about a violation of the law. It's incredibly difficult to to prove why is set up that way in the first place. That's a great question. And that's the reason why Betty mccollum representative betty mccollum and nineteen other members of congress are calling for requiring the state department to do better reporting on the use of security assistance by particular israeli military units and police. Israel is a tiny country has a population of around nine million democrecy and a key regional ally. It's surrounded by historical enemies that have long wanted to destroy the nation. The arab world has more than four hundred million people. Why shouldn't the us help it's la. I'm not saying that the us shouldn't provide assistance to its allies. But i will say that the us should be better at.

"Rocket attacks on the Gaza Strip. Dozens of Palestinians were killed after Israel's military says it attacked a militant tunnel system. Israel said that when the underground facility crumbled, the foundations of civilian houses above also collapsed, leading to what Israel called unintended casualties.

The U. N Security Council convened this morning to discuss ongoing hostilities between the two sides. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says that Israel shared intelligence with U. S officials ahead of an attack on a building in Gaza that House news organizations, including the AP. Israel claims it brought the building down because Hamas used high rises to plot attacks on Israel. As NPR's Sarah McCammon reports, journalism groups are demanding answers about what led to that strike the building destroyed during Israeli airstrikes, House departments and the offices of the Associated Press and Al Jazeera.

Asked whether he'd shared that information with President Biden during a call this weekend, Netanyahu said the information was given to US officials. We pass it through the intelligence services to our people to those people. Why do you think we brought down that building? Netanyahu says Israel warned journalists to vacate the building before the strike. The Associated Press says it's been given no evidence that Hamas was using the building. Sarah McCammon.

"What's erupting across. Israel has been described as a civil war with arab and jewish mobs attacking each other in the streets. So i think we all new winning the fabric of jewish relations and joint citizenship. That we've been working on for the last seventy years also today. President biden has warning for would-be cybercriminals. Washington is ready to beat them at their game. Not through one upmanship but the collaboration and intelligence sharing its basic sola. Thais keeping stuff. There's glamorous in this but that's the right approach and amsterdam is tackling climate change by banning subway ads for gas guzzling cars. It makes no sense to exercising or something. We went to get rid of sauce. I'm marco werman. The stories are more today here on the world. I'm marco werman you're with the world it's good to be with you. We'll begin the program again today with violence in the mideast the militant group hamas today sent a heavy barrage of rockets from gaza into israel. The israeli military has also been pounding hamas targets in gaza with more airstrikes since fighting began at least seven israelis have been killed in close to one hundred palestinians. Israel says the majority of them were militants. Despite that fraud situation the back and forth shelling is not the main talking point in israel today. people are focused on the violent. Riots erupted between jewish and arab. Moths israeli citizens arabs jews fighting each other in the streets disturbing scenes of savage beatings from both sides. Cars synagogues and a muslim cemetery set on fire shops vandalized and looted israeli president. Reuven rivlin describe what he's seeing a civil war. Marshall be be. Hey kidney ritalin. Called into israeli television and said we're under threat of rockets on our citizens and streets and we're in the midst of civil war among ourselves. Please please stop this madness. Israeli prime minister. Benjamin netanyahu warned. He was ready to use an iron fist to calm the violence. So the beltran. Hello helene kabila was it is anarchy. He said nothing can justify it. I spoke earlier today with mohammed derocha. He directs the center for a shared society. At given the which works to bring arabs and jews together i asked him how he's processing. What's unfolding right now in israel and eat marco this hour terrible times that we haven't witnessed something like this at least not in my lifetime when the police say takes a back seat and when political leaders and take back seat mostly thing role of inciting even and i'm talking about the jewish and arab leaders. There's allowing small to be the ones that they take control and the use violence a i think we are ruining the fabric of jewish arab relations and joint citizenship. That we've been working on for the last seventy years. Since the creation of the state of israel but the first time there is a political organization of rightwing mobs that come from settlements in the west bank that choose entira arrive into arab towns and villages and choose confrontation and unfortunately the police the forget that the supposed to serve and protect all citizens and they choose to serve and protect the jewish citizens. Only and i think that's a big failure of understanding their mission and instead of being part of the solution the actually become part of the problem. How would you describe what's going on right now. Is it a protests that have turned violent or is the intent of the people involved actually to riot. It was a protest that turned violent. That's the way we can describe people. That went to demonstrate. They want to demonstrate to express perspective. I think most of the public didn't really understand that things could go out of control so quickly. Not no knowing actually expected this to happen. But i think it says the best interest of benin netanyahu. That's why we're not seeing any real attempt to try to stop loose ends of also it. Sounds like you're saying this. Violence is not sprouting organically towns. It's been engineered from other parts of the country. So who are the rioters while the two types of writers i mean there are people that they happen to be a demonstration. A an. it's the motivation to express the prospective whether it is against the the new policies of the prayer or limitations that are put on worshippers in the mosque in jerusalem or people that are opposing the war on gaza but many of them get caught in escalation that could sometimes either driven by some parts of the demonstrators. That may be have a political agenda that they want to serve or they get attacked by people from outside their towns most of the writers that come to confront the arabic demonstrators in lewd and are not from those towns themselves. It's not neighbors standing against each other. It's not this case. I mean luckily even enjoying buildings jews and arabs that living in the same building were not experiencing neighbors turning against each other earlier this week in load as i said that arab man who was shot dead in the street by jewish neighbor. You saying that's an exception. I think that's a very major exception in a we're talking about the approximately one hundred sixty thousand dollars citizens that live in mixed cities and one incident out of one hundred and sixty thousand. I think it's a small a disproportionate representation of the reality between jews and out in the country. But that said. I think that the the dynamics on the ground could not last. I mean the the situation right now if it doesn't end in the next twenty four to forty eight hours. I think we might experience different kinds of dynamics that got two things to local confrontations between neighboring neighbors that live with each other that will have lived with each other for many many years. I'm speaking with political analysts mahamoud. Russia focusing on the strikes happening across israel at the moment until monday When hamas began firing rockets into israel. It seemed like a coalition government that would see prime minister netanyahu. Leaving office that it was on the verge of formation. It would've led to for the first time. Israeli jews and israeli arabs cooperating under one government have these riots affected that unfortunately yes. The events of the last three days have reduced the possibility of forming a coalition government that will include our political parties. Actually as of this morning. And the negotiations between the united arab list and a up Who was mandated by the president to form the government announced. Stop any negotiations into this. Process specifically knowing that there are differences in political perspectives and usually between right and left in israel and specifically with the political parties. That are left of the left of the political scene in israel and especially on issues such as a occupation. The palestinian citizens have strong positions against the occupation and is collision of Violence as we are witnessing right now in gaza one of your challenges with your organization. The center for shared society give is creating precisely that society muslims jews between people of all face so as you look at the current situation. How do you do that. That's the big question right now. What we know three things that need to be to happen. One is a to create dialogue. I think that the national politicians are a part of the problem and we're counting more on the local politicians in the local leaders in the local educators. The local business people that suffer from those type of incidents and have dodig interested to prevent this from happening. The second is to break the divide. Jews and arabs unfortunately live separate lives and if we have an interaction. It's mostly what. I would call nine to five interaction working together but after five pm we go to separate. Social structures will go to separate communities separate essential neighborhoods and towns and villages. We do not have enough. Integration and enough corporation on the social arenas and the third component i think is the strengthen mixed businesses and mixed interests nixed infrastructures we create partnerships between the communities. The more we force them to continue working together we have to. Actually today's expand our work. We have to have make sure that it's not just education for ships society which is putting the burden of peace building on the shoulders of we need to put the burden on the shoulders of adults. That are running the show in jewish and arab neighboring municipalities. Muhammed dorota is a political analyst also directs the center for a shared society. I'd give it a vivo. Where he works to bring arabs ngos together mohammed. Thank you very much for speaking with us. Thank you bye ede.
