COVID-19:infections areworseningeverywhere, warnsUN agency for Palestine refugees
"Covid nineteen infections at bay among Palestinian refugees has never been so crucial as the new school year gets underway the UN. Relief. and Works Agency unrehearsed said in an interview with you and uses Daniel. Johnson. Agency spokesperson tomorrow I'll refi explains how the agency's put changes in place to try and keep safety five point six million people at AIDS across Jordan, Lebanon Syria, and the West Bank including East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip. Well, Anura has just launched an appeal to raise funds for it to be able. To continue responding to the consequences of covid nineteen, the immediate emergency of course is a health emergency and making sure that the Palestinian refugee community and the staff are all safe. The other immediate emergency is making sure that the Palestinian refugee community has access to all the critical services that's on your what gifts them even though the way we deliver these services has changed. So for instance, needs to have access to medical services, but they can no longer come to the Anura health centers instead on health staff, proceeds through telemedicine and home delivery of. Drugs, right. So people are getting their essential health needs but I think what was most alarming about what you said over the weekend was that the number of covid infections really are starting to spike alarmingly could you make a bit more detail about that owner is very concerned about the spike in numbers of covid nineteen across the countries we work, and so we've seen a spike in the West Bank over the last few weeks but also a spike in Lebanon recently, spy can Gaza with until not very long ago was relatively contained. We also saw a spike in Jordan and Syria would the conflict we hear about. But there is very little data and information coming from there. So everywhere we work seems to be becoming worse and the point is that you're able to keep it at bay if you like the infections of this new corona virus, because you were helping some of the five point, six million registered Palestine Refugees in the middle, East with what they needed to stay at home and keep away from others. So therefore preventing transmission of the virus, but that has now changed because people just literally have to. Get back to work only able to contain largely the outspread of Covid nineteen because we were able to convince people to stay home convinced them meaning delivering to their homes, what they needed whether it's food assistance or whether it's medicine or whether it's distance learning the problem is when the situation took much longer than we thought people needed to go back to work and to their livelihoods Palestine refugees say things like we rather catch covid nineteen than go hungry. Yeah, and you can understand that you of course. You can understand that given the scale of the social economic impact of Covid, nineteen around the world it's only worse on vulnerable communities like refugee communities and in particular Palestinian refugee communities. Another element of your work is obviously education and I know that you commissioner general is very proud of the educational support that you give to what five, hundred thousand Palestinian refugee children. Maybe you could tell me about how they're back to school challenges have panned out whether they're doing remote learning the actually backing class the. Early, signs are all very exciting and very positive students across the fields we work at. Enron are extremely excited to go back to school. We're talking about half a million girls and boys in over seven hundred schools. We're talking about a big cohort of people and a bit cohort of people who work committed in the last academic year to continuing their learning even though it was remote and often difficult. When you're a Palestine refugee, you don't necessarily have an individual tablet and constant internet coverage and yet the. Students that went on learning. Last year was really high and this is something we are very proud of this year. We have several scenarios in place either the children go fully back to school physically while respecting social distancing in hygiene rules and everything where they have a blended approach. So they go for three days to school and they study remotely for three days. We also have a scenario in case the situation gets worse and we have another lockdown where students fully lauren remotely. So we're looking at all scenarios where prepared to mix and match just to continue education and what Would you say in terms of covid exposing the weaknesses of the system of you like we've seen all over the world it's exposed the frailties of already mentioned of people with chronic illness those who don't have a job with some welfare support. What would you say in the five the five areas under works East Jerusalem Gaza Strip Lebanon Syria the West Bank and Jordan let in every crisis. The most vulnerable are the ones who are most put to the test and in the case of Covid nineteen as you said, a lot of the weaknesses of difference systems whether it's health education. Welfare were tested however, some of the strengths of some institutions were also tested in the case of Anura because we have a very long and solid experience and education in emergencies for example, were able to shift very quickly to distance learning and to supporting students and families, and the teachers and the education staff to continue education the same for health services we do have that experience, which unfortunately we took from various wars and conflicts and emergencies, but it's an experience that's helped us well in this lockdown and closure face because of covid nineteen.

COVID-19 in Gaza: even in refugee camps, people asked to stay home
"Corona virus has arrived to Gaza Strip and many cases where recorded here. What is used to the situation now? Coroner related situation in Gaza for me has two distinct elements of it on the one hand. There is some good news in that. Have so far. Been very low number of cases thirteen in total and they are all inside. The quarantine are areas managed by the local authorities. So to the best of our knowledge. The virus has not yet been transmitted into the local communities here so it can still very much be contained. We've also seen hundreds of people released from the quarantine Sandra's without any any symptoms of being infected or ill. So that's another good sign. Having said this we remain I remain very worried with many colleagues that we are taking the foot off the brakes too early because the potential remains very high. There's a very high risks that there will be a local outbreak. Why are we saying this? It has to do with not enough tests being available. So there's an urgent call for tests and that includes that in some of the people who've been released from the quarantine areas where not tested so we don't know for sure if they really are not cases amongst them what we also don't know for sure is whether all those that were put into quarantine several hundred people at one thousand eight hundred at one point really had no context whatsoever with any of the local population that is not a hundred percent guaranteed and then finally we know that a couple of people will be coming in from Egypt in the next few days. I think starting today to one hundred fifty potentially and there are more than rumors that some of them may be cases and may be ill. So there's another risk there that a new case load of people coming in. May Bring it in. And if it's not very well handled it might spread so the situation is on the one hand one where we seem to have so far been spared local break on lake most places in the world but on the other hand we need to remain extremely village vigilant and at high alert to really contain it and prevent a local outbreak because if there is a local outbreak it would be a total disaster and after the years of blockade the health sector is in a very weak position very weak state of affairs the hospitals and beyond thousand five hundred people so getting ill the hospital sector would not cope in treating treating those ill so we must do everything possible to prevent. The outbreak has taunted koshen majors even before recording the first cases. Less please about these majors. Yes of course so. When the virus reached the region more generally more than a month ago immediately said to my own colleagues. We now need to not speculate whether it's going to enter Gaza. Not let's do everything possible and act as if it's here the first measure. We took already more than a month. Ago was to close all our schools so two hundred eighty two thousand children from two hundred seventy six schools have been at home for more than a month as as have the almost nine thousand teachers and education stuff and we are trying to provide online support learning materials and mentoring and coaching online. And through fallen. Now the second thing we did very quickly after the virus reached the region was to introduce strict triage systems at twenty two health centres. So what that means is that people with respiratory illnesses and symptoms where directed to a nearby school that we reopened as a health center to make sure that people with respiratory illnesses and symptoms where protected from all others and vice versa. And that's working very well. And then after the first two cases became known some two weeks ago maybe now or so we stopped the food operation to over one million people and we took a few days to think through. How can we deliver the food in a more safe and healthy way so for about ten days now? I think we've been delivering food at home because it's much easier to manage. Crowds have crowd control if you have individuals delivering food at home. You can train them. You can provide them with protective equipment and overall the feedback. I'm getting is that. That works rather well and we are now looking ahead to a possible outbreak. We're trying to prepare for the worst but hope for the best. What that means is our health. Centers are ready to provide primary essential primary healthcare over the phone through telemedicine. We will continue to provide food in Safeway's and so on and we will all those of us who do not need to be out to deliver services directly will and are already working from home so those are the main measures owner has been taking so far it is well known that on otherwise facing financial crisis and now dealing with more complicated situation. What is on our capability to sustain the services? Now that's a very good question We can make or play a role in fighting the Kobe. Nine thousand nine virus because of our core capacities teachers are health stuff. Funded through our program budget as we call it now as things stand. The program budget is fully funded till the end of. May roughly and after that as things stand if we don't get further pledges and money. We will run out of money in June and that would become a huge problem both in terms of finding the coral no virus because the staff that is involved in all the measures I described earlier our our regular employees. We have capacity built over years and that needs to be maintained and of course if we had to stop our core services because we run out of money we would also not be able to provide the vital education health and other services that are meant to provide the refugees with dignity and some hope for the future so things are critical and my message to the international community is don't just look understandably at the corona situation. Please make sure that we can continue to play. Its role by funding. Our core budget beyond the end of me. Refugee camps are the most dangerous places in the case of outer break because of overpopulation. Do you have land to deal with the situation in case something happened? So there's there's two things where thinking about so far one is If there's an outbreak of a crisis what is referred to as social distancing remains as relevant if not more than in the current phase so in other words even in overcrowded places like refugee camps where trying to work towards people changing their behavior and staying at home because in social distance. Ending doesn't mean everyone stays on their own. You need to at least protect your family. So even if there's twelve people sharing a two bedroom shelter if those twelve are do not have the virus and stay at home. They will protect themselves and everyone else. So that will be critical if the virus breaks out to prevent it from spreading. People need to as difficult as it is even more strictly adhere to those kinds of roles as well as of course all the hygiene measures. I know many people don't have safe drinking water but the World Health Organization tells me that it is for most people safe to use the water that they have at least to wash their hands properly so that would be one avenue. We will continue to try and influence the necessary behavior changes and actions to ensure that it doesn't spread if it breaks out and then the other thing we're doing is talking with the Ministry of Health and others the World Health Organization around. What can be done to to have enough facilities available to treat patients who become ill what we know. Is that a majority of cases tend to be mild to medium so they will not necessarily have to go to hospital they will need to have some form of care in isolation and we're working with many actors to look into what can we do collectively including to ensure enough space will be available outside of the camps to come back to your question to to treat the people who become ill. It's a desperate race against time. I'm not at all trying to suggest. This would be easy but this is the best we can do. Under very challenging circumstances here under blockade the impact of grown viruses not limited to the health sector. The economy will be affected and as we know. Gaza is facing ready a recession. How would you possible to deal with the consequences even With a lack of fund? You are facing no for sure I think so. I think we are seeing already. Some of the impact of covert nineteen that goes beyond health and indeed around the world. We see economies collapsing. And we're seeing some of this here so the authorities here have rightfully in order to fight the covet nineteen closed restaurants and cafes for example and that that means a few people are out of job and out of income and I've heard predictions from colleagues inside the UN system but also Palestinian economists. That are worried that the unemployment that was already fifty percent before corner. Hit here may rise to at least seventy percents so yes. We are very worried as owner and as u n about the impact of the covet. Nineteen th you know. The focus right now is on preventing it breaking out and containing it but even if we succeed to keep it small in Gaza. There's no doubt in my mind that we'll be serious economic and humanitarian impact. And that's why it's good that the secretary general of the UN and others are already starting to look at. How do we deal with the medium to longer term consequences that are not just about hells about about the well-being economic and humanitarian wellbeing and for sure because Gaza was already significantly weakened after the years of occupation and fourteen years of locate the impact in terms of economy? Humanitarian consequences will be severe here. I think that's reasonable to assume and we must already have started as owner with others to think through. What could those consequences be? And what can we do to help? The refugees cope with with the impact.

Israel and Sudan Will Push to Normalize Relations
"Get now to this month's news that Israel and Sudan will push to normalize relations that sounds like a huge diplomatic coup for Israel. Is that right? It is a massive diplomatic coup for Israel. it's a great thing. I think for Sudan as well A separate matter is how it was conducted however and that has to be said If you look at what's good for Sudan itself I think Any measure that strengthens Sudan's economy and at the same time strengthens the The the cohesion of the Democratic Forces that one would hope would emerge prevail in a sustainable way way up on elections for the down. The line is a good thing for Sudan Israel's role there Obviously is is one of Assisting and in having Sudan seen as a friendly country towards the West which which is the port of call for assistance in the development of Sudan And that was much the idea behind the the elements in the Sudanese governance structure. That looked for this meeting with with with Prime Minister Netanyahu The however There's a diversity of news of views among the civilian political constellation in in Sudan as to how and when to engage with Israel. And what's been announced by Netanyahu and and And General Borhan in compiler Is that copolymers. The capital of Uganda. That is intended to set up afterwards normalization of relationships. You know the other the other interests there. There are In in in this in this Development are to Wean Sudan from the potential influence of Iran. And that's the reason why in this meeting it is understood that there was a heavy involvement of the of of the Gulf Gulf powers especially the United Arab Emirates which presumably set it up where it's understood. Set it up after about three months of negotiations Negotiations with the military To Go back to your question about Israel and Sudan in the last few decades you may remember that there were reported bombings by Israel of convoys of arms and Sudan I it was understood at the time that that's that Sudan. was getting assistance from Iran to arm elements in the Gaza Strip. And that was the route that these ratings bombed The main obstacle that Sudan has right now economically is the fact that because Osama bin Laden was was hosted in Sudan enlarged in Sudan the US designated Sudan a state sponsor of terrorism and That designation stands in the way of Sudan enjoying the support of certain multilateral entities that are deemed to be indispensable for unblocking the hurdles towards development in Sudan and that was very much behind the the idea of the military elements that engage in this conversation with Netanyahu there are elements within the civilian spectrum in Sudan that are not particularly opposed to engaging with Israel but saw in the way this was conducted a trampling of the agreement that that he would be the council itself not one member of the counselor one element of the council that would develop foreign policy decision of this dimension and it was reported that the prime minister hadn't been even warned about this meeting and they learned about it through the press even though the military claim they told him a couple of days before So what I'm trying to say here is that while it's a wonderful development the way this is delivered Mccarey some risks because it could fray The or could exacerbate tensions between the civilian elements and military within Sudan from the Israeli point of view. We have to also realize that to the extent that this engagement has to do with brokering results from Sudan. If those results do not materialize you have to wonder how how Israel is going to be perceived on how engagement with Israel is going to be perceived a relationship like this though a warming thawing of ties. It doesn't come out of nowhere right. There's a lot of hard work that went into this. Certainly a lot of a lot of hard work has gone into this Their reports actually that Israel had engaged with Bush here as well in two thousand sixteen by sheer kind of had some nice things to say about about Israel at least relative to its neighbors. Right when the Syrian civil war was kind of ramping up but she said you know even if Israel had taken over Syria. We wouldn't be seeing something this terrible exactly which is mild statement as we would see it. It's not mile given the context in which it was made It's not uncommon for African countries and countries elsewhere. Really do think that the road To Washington go through Jerusalem and This is at play very much here. But it sounds vaguely anti Semitic you know. It isn't and yet if you see it. From the point of view of our ability to insert the values of democracy that Israel represents and the potential for engagement with neighbors that develop in that direction. I don't necessarily think it is so unfortunately though It is one of the main reasons Why many of these governments bother to engage because otherwise they're very focused on their own Takeout from from that engagement in certain carries risks I mean there's no shortage of radical Islamist movements in especially in this hell in Africa that threatened to destabilize governments upon engagement with Israel. So they have to be at sea benefit and the benefit. Gm oftentimes has to do with with acceding to Raising their profile of attention in America and in the mainstream world and they they do think that the Jewish community in America and and and Israel can can help in that direction and point of fact after this meeting in compiler the General General Received a call from Mike Pompeo inviting him to Washington so It was pretty explicit

What sets Trump's Mideast peace plan apart from previous proposals?
"The trump brings out this peace plan yesterday is this plan is effectively very simple basically get knowledges realities on the ground that's what this from Middle East peace plan is that what you're hearing from the media today is that trump has changed the game in the Middle East that from his abandon prospects for peace when what to wear is about this is the prospects for peace have stopped all wounds the reason they have stock always in the Middle East is because you have one side that would like to white the other side off of the map now a lot of prospects for peace over there in order to understand the Middle East conflict what you have to understand is one very simple truth Israel has accepted every piece offer that has ever been put in front of it and every single piece offer has been rejected by the Palestinians and the Arab world generally back in nineteen seventeen when the ball for declaration was first promulgated that said there would be Jewish national home in Palestine meeting now will be Jordan as well as Israel when that was first put out there the Jews immediately accepted the herbs turned it down and when people talk about this vast territory for the Jews get let let's be real about this there's some fifty eight Arab and Muslim countries on planet earth Arab or Muslim countries on planet earth all the Arab countries are all Muslim country there is one Jewish state I'm plant earth it is tiny Israel is something like fifteen thousand square miles is extraordinarily small Israel is half the size of New Jersey in a region that is extraordinarily large so the idea of a Jewish national home there not only is not any sort of giant cram down on the on the Arab population it is eight eight eight tiny percentage of the total land mass in the area and of course Jews have never stop living there there is a historic Jewish tie to the land of Israel but the reason I'm going back in history is you need to understand why it is the pieces never happen there and then because of the Jews okay so the Jews were originally told by the British Mandate by the British they're going to get Jordan as well as Israel okay then sliced off Jordan then they slice off half of Israel are they sliced away most of today and Samaria they sliced away half of Jerusalem it's like the way the Gaza Strip and then did you accepted that you like okay the U. N. says that Israel can be a state jurors will be an open international city right under the tutelage of the west right will not be in fact owned by the Jews are owned by the Arabs will be under the tutelage of the United Nations whatever is real touch that deal except it right granted an indefensible rum state in the borders in nineteen forty seven Israel accepted and the Arabs rejected has been termed by people living in Israel be out of its borders because they're completely indefensible completely understand how small Israel is you have to understand the borders before nineteen sixty seven included an area of Israel that is nine miles wide okay the distance from our office to the Santa Monica beach and that is the distance and and without traffic okay for without traffic you can travel the with of Israel with a bit of the state of Israel you can travel that without traffic in four in forty seven forty at worst you can travel that in under fifteen minutes and that is the worst in the entire country in that particular area if you've never been is really don't understand the geography you don't actually understand what's going on and understand how closely everything is packed together okay so Israel accepts that and the Arabs rejected and they declare war the Saudis the Jordanians the Egyptians the Syrians they all declare war on this new state the British were very much afraid of taking off the air is because they didn't want to drive the Arabs in the arms of the chair of the Soviet Union they refuse to allow Jews to emigrate to British Mandate Palestine so during the world during World War two as the Holocaust is happening the British mandated preventing Jews from moving in specifically because they don't want to take off the Arabs in the area the Jews largely go along with that Ben Gurion largely goes along with that in the interest of venture we getting state the state is finally granted by the United Nations and once that happens the user like okay fine I guess we'll just accept it okay if I like okay good at least we have a place to go at least now there is a Jewish national home and everything now okay this is when all of Japan's Maria Andrews wasn't international control and the Gaza Strip all of that is delegated to the Arabs who had pre sixty seven borders and say no and they want you in an isolation attack on the state of Israel and Israel fights back in the early stages of that of that war Arabs are urged by the Arab leadership to flee the area specifically because they're supposed to get out of the way of the onrushing Arab armies are gonna come in and crush the Jews and so they they're so hundred thousand Palestinian Arabs for living in the in the British Mandate Palestine in the Jewish area of what will be the the Israeli state of Palestine the the Israeli area Palestine hundred thousand arms fully he then as the war progresses it turns out that a lot of the Arab villages are actually if columns operating on behalf of the Arab armies which is exactly what you would expect because this is an ethnic conflict Hey the the Arabs are using these as bases of attack against the Jews they're cutting off supply lines supply rolled and the and the Israelis put in place some called operation dollar which says we are not going to lock down our tiny army in guarding these villages that are effectively in many cases a fifth column instead we're going to tell people that they need to leave these villages and move over to the Arab side okay now remember when the state of Israel was declared the state of Israel declaration of independence urges the Arab citizens to stay to stay here be part of the part of the work that we are doing be part of the state Ben Gurion didn't understand why the Arabs are fleeing using you can live here what's the problem she's lived as minority in Arab countries for thousands of years why exactly should there not be one Jewish state where Arabs are a minority and the assumption on the part of the Israeli leadership is that as all the Jews flowed into Israel from the other Arab countries and from Europe that that would become minority population more minority population their population okay sell people flee and then the Israeli army in the second wave is fighting these battles in in the middle of war there's always population term well people always leave to get out of the way I'm on rushing battles and the Israeli army can't afford to be locked down pin down transitive van insurgent campaigns in certain villages into the clear the population out okay so after the war ends there now something like for it anywhere from four hundred to seven hundred thousand Palestinian refugees at the same exact time nearly the same number of Jews are expelled from Arab countries around the region of ever talk about this right like the reason that there's so many Moroccan Jews who live in Israel the reason there's so many Iranian Jews living in Israel the reason there's so many Syrian Jews living in Israel is because at the time of the Israeli sounding seven hundred thousand Jews were expelled from the surrounding Arab countries and Israel took all of them in all of them it'll take all of them and with no international help he normally the U. N. helped fund the placement of refugees in new places no help at all Israel takes all of them in the Arab states instead of absorbing these populations into the general population decides that they're going to keep these populations refugees so the first movie is we are not going to actually allow them to return to the state of Israel when I can allow them to move back to division because that would be acknowledging that we lost the war and that they would have to then be Israeli citizens then very quickly within about a year the Arab leadership says you know great if we could infiltrate the state of Israel with a bunch of people who are on our side one of his state of Israel destroyed at that point the Israelis like well guess what we are not letting people in back into the state when they fled their homes were not letting them back in just to stand in favor of the destruction of the state is not never in human history has been the obligation of a of a state that was declared war on by its surrounding population to take in large numbers of members of people who are trying to destroy the state from within that has never been anything okay in in the aftermath of everywhere they're refugees the idea of resettlement of the refugees back in their original homes has never really been a thing either in fact is in the aftermath of World War two there were huge population transfers all over Europe they're in the aftermath of the of the declaration of the division of Pakistan and India there were tens of millions of people who are refugees and they were taken in by their countries and they did is that Indians live in India and Muslims live in Pakistan and the specific area where there is no separation cashmere has been a hot spot ever since but there's never been any call for less sixty years for all of the Indians were expelled from Pakistan and left Pakistan to have their original homes back in Pakistan right is never been negotiation point the Palestinians then are used as a tool by the Arab world to club Israel into submission and their use as an excuse to claim that Israel ought to be is right this is the so called right of return it's a great book on this at recommended yesterday called the war for turn by a couple of the leftist Israelis one was a former labor MK member of Knesset and one of them is journalist hearts okay so I'm just explaining history because it you're not going to stand from fees plan until you understand okay so there's never been anything internationally that says the Jews cannot live in Judean Samaria it's a ridiculous suggestion the notion that it is somehow a violation of international law for the Jews who won a defensive war in nineteen forty to settle in the areas they want is upset it's absurd okay in nineteen sixty four the Arabs still have yes merry on Gaza Egypt is in the Gaza Strip but has not an exit specifically because it does not actually want the Palestinian population absorbed into the Egyptian population density area have not been annexed by Jordan right they've not been technically annexed by Jordan for the exact same reason but Jordan is ruling intraday and Samaria Hey this is a so the notion that Israel was always ruling all of these errors all is just not historically true the Palestine Liberation Organization which is Yasser Arafat's organization now the Palestinian authority which rules the Palestinian areas in the west bank an area act the Palestinian authority effectively is founded in nineteen sixty four now you might notice something on the time line here nineteen sixty four is before nineteen sixty seven in nineteen sixty four the Arabs are talking about the liberation of Palestine at that point Jerusalem is split the Jordanians are in control of the old city of Jerusalem they've banned all Jews mentoring the old city of Jerusalem they discriminate against Christians in the old city of Jerusalem they build barbed wire fences around Jerusalem Hey they already control Judea and Samaria Egypt controls the Gaza Strip and yet there's something called the Palestine Liberation Organization weird what exactly are they seeking to liberate make very clear in their charter what exactly they're seeking to liberate every square inch of territory between the Jordan River in the Mediterranean Sea in other words the murder of every Jew in that region and the ethnic cleansing of Jews from that region a second Holocaust get a made this clear since nineteen sixty four in the nineteen sixty seven war happens and all the Arab countries under the leadership of NASA in Egypt decide to mobilize against the Israelis they decide they're going to want to second war every time shin against the Israelis and the Israelis get wind of this and the Israelis

Thanks, great to be here on Goldenberg run the Middle East program at the center for new American security and also worked with Hattie and others at the State Department on the Israeli Palestinian issue and previous negotiations. Great. Thanks for being with us here to describe your report that we wrote in close collaboration and joint partnership with the center for new American security, a report on American policy towards the Gaza Strip and how we think it might change reformed a task force for that. We gathered some of the best and most experienced mines here in Washington Americans who've had exp. With American government. And with analyzing the situation we spoken to numerous stakeholders in the region and elsewhere and tried to think about how American policy towards Gaza might change. We will be launching that report on December third at Brookings, and please tune in for that. If you're in Washington, please join us, and if not you can join on the web at ten AM on December third so perhaps you can start by telling us a little bit about the situation right now. I think we all know the station in Gaza is bad. But if a little bit more about what that actually means. It's surprising. How bad the situation in Gaza is Gaza's essentially manmade humanitarian catastrophe that kind of unfolds day after day were sitting here in Washington DC. So I like to think about how big GAAS is Gaza is about just under two million people living in an area about twice the size of Washington D C with a critical challenge. There is this lack of freedom of movement, the inability of people of Gaza to move to adjacent areas. And so imagine living in Washington DC, wearing Gaza only.

"Live from Washington D, C J secular live. And now chief counsel for the American Center for law and Justice. Jay seculow. So I get this alert that I have on my iphone that lets me know when there's rockets being launched into Israel. And I will tell you yesterday that alert the red alert it's called you should download the app. It's a fascinating thing to watch the understand what the Israelis are living with every day. Well, here's what happened. There was a series of these upwards of three hundred rockets came in yesterday, the militant group HAMAs, which is controlling still most of the Gaza Strip pledged to actually increase the attacks on Israel per quote. It's aggression the threat from a mosque came as the Israeli military said it was carrying out a wide scale strike on military targets throughout the Gaza Strip and the Palestinian kept up their most intense rocket fire since two thousand fourteen now I've been in the region when that has happened we have been there when that has happened shoot is with me and our headquarters here in Washington DC Stewart, we've experienced these rocket attacks firsthand. And you know, where this money's coming from two to propel these rockets from Iran. That's why the Iran sanctions are are so important, Jay. But yeah, we we've been there numerous times, this is Israel's neighbor, unfortunately, who is devoted to destructing the state of Israel. They don't want peace. It's in their constitution. They wanted to destroy Israel. It's not about settlements. It's not about this. It's not about that. They they really look at the entire Israel is being one big settlement that needs to be characterized it to another Arab state. Yeah. They want the destruction of Israel. They say that in the HAMAs. Charter by the way, it's clear as you can be a Westmeath is our our military senior military officer Colonel in the United States army retired. The reports are that it's actually four hundred rockets or mortar bombs across the border from Gaza into Israel after carrying out. This was after the railways carried out an attack on HAMAs leadership killing one of the Maas leaders. What's your sense of this? And I'm going to give you some personal experience. We down in that actual region when that has happened. Yeah. Thanks J. I had to turn off my. Red alert because it kept going off all night long, waking me up, but HAMAs, you know, of course, is a terrorist group. They are estimated to have over twenty thousand rockets and mortars in their arsenal and Stewart's right they fired yesterday laser guided anti tank round at an Israeli bus. That's the first time. That's happened. They threatened at the same time. They were going to use more advanced projectiles. They call them to bring about what they're saying a million Zionist within range of their rockets, this laser-guided technology, and this fisticuffs guidance system that there are threatening to us is what we discovered two months ago that Iran was supplying both to HAMAs and Hezbollah so rans fingerprints are all over this. I think is pretty disingenuous for HAMAs to say that they that newsreel started this by sending that of undercover unit into the Gaza Strip. They went into the Gaza Strip because HAMAs continues. To stage violent demonstrations at the border. They continue to send incendiary kites into Israel, thousands of acres west. I think it's important for you to explain to our audience because this is a new technique that utilize these incendiary kites, these are basically a kite then catches areas on fires pointing people what this is again. This is another aspect of warfare is very simple is easy to do. And they have flown literally hundreds of kites over into Israel, you wait till the wind direction is right. You put but what basically is a molotov cocktail kind of device on it with a very very long cloth or string fuse. So that it takes awhile for for the actual fuse to get into the fuel use gasoline or whatever. And then it explodes and the fuel spreads everywhere. Like, I said thousands of acres of land and several buildings in Israel have been destroyed by these kites, so Israel sent this unit into Gaza this intelligence unit undercover because they're trying to stop this violence, not only add the border, but that's spilling across into Israel, HAMAs fired on the unit, and that's how they started and is pretty disingenuous for them to say, well, we'll stop this when usual stops the aggression. The aggressors are HAMAs. I'm going to try to see if we can get David Benjamin Rami Levy from our office in Jerusalem on in the next couple of segments of the broadcast. So we'll be working on that. I'll let me tell you this. We're taking a break we come back and take more your calls and more information. We're gonna talk about the situation in Israel. What does it mean for the greater region?

"Pray for. Those affected by the tree of life synagogue, you the shooting condemning anti-semitism and understanding that as an organization. We do a lot to condemn the boycott divestment sation movement in the United States a lot of this anti-semitism on college campuses. Which is exactly what it is in the form of being anti Israel, these distinctions at these groups try to make which are just absurd. Is against something as organization we combat some of these individuals. We should all combat and acknowledged it is an issue. That's. In the United States as it is in most of the world. Unfortunately, since the beginning of time and today on the broadcast, virtually focusing in on what Israel has been doing in response to attacks on the Jewish state of Israel. I think it's a unique time to point out. There has been a esscalation over the weekend. In fact, just this weekend it Israel out of the Gaza Strip so targeted Israel, thirty rockets were fired by Gaza based militants how this group is called Palestinian Islamic Jihad or sometimes just referred to as Islamic Jihad, the Israel as a government holds Tomasz responsible for Islamic Jihad's activities at Hamas Islamic Jihad work together often, but there are times when they are separate. And so you'll see that Islamic Jihad is also based in Damascus where a lot of their leaders are headquartered. To get protection. So that they are not actually in harm's way directly. So their leadership. They're HAMAs leadership Muslim brother a hood leadership both groups emanating, by the way from the Muslim Brotherhood at from HAMAs. But interesting enough, even though it's coming out of the SUNY world getting alive, it's funding from the Shia world in Iran. So first, let's talk this weekend. I'll go to Harry Hutchison. Harry this weekend, we saw really escalation just specifically between Islamic Jihad and Israel comes out of the Gaza Strip, but thirty rockets being fired at the state of Israel, and then Israel responding back with a specific attacks on eighty targets. Absolutely. So this is an important and ominous development these attacks coming from Gaza suggests that HAMAs is working with the Islamic Jihad. It's working with Syria and ultra. It's working with Iran, which is the source of much of the mischief in the Middle East. So in response to provocation, essentially by Iran and its surrogates including this mic jihad has blah militants in Syria. Israel has conducted an aggressive military campaign across Syria against Iran, backed militias groups, and in Gaza, this is highly necessary Israel cannot allow these militants to build up an arsenal as basis of continued attacks on Israel, and it could lead ultimately to another outbreak of a small or perhaps a large war. Yeah. I mean, you're talking about a again organizations that emanate out of again the. Primarily here you've got the Gaza Strip the Islamic Jihad group unlike HAMAs operates pretty heavily in the West Bank as well. So that is why they are though HAMAs because they are the governing power in the Gaza Strip. So if these rockets are launched Israel holds for Moscow responsible for not preventing the rockets from being launched by these other groups and sometimes working tandem. So I know that the again, it's the Middle East things get complicated by understand there's Lama jihad group also operates in the West Bank controlled by the PLO or the Palestinian Authority. And so they, but what is unique to what kind of ties them all together is the funding that they receive from Iran, and specifically Iran's revolutionary guard forces where do those funds flow through they flow through Damascus now, even at a time when you would imagine that Syria is extremely unstable that has been one of the headquarters for these Islamic Palestine. Slavic terror groups so west we're seeing an increase not just between attacks in the Gaza Strip and Israel. But specifically over just the past eighteen months, the really escalation what Israel is doing in Syria and targeting Iran forces there, every one of their primary goals is to prevent Iran from having an occupying force inside Syria. Yeah. Exactly over the last eighteen months, Israel has launched. They think about two hundred airstrikes in Syria, and what really Israel is trying to do. They're trying to head off. What would be a major major war in the Middle East and they're doing that. Through these air attacks, first of all they're trying to stop Iran from having a permanent military base near the Israeli border. They're trying to head off a major war because they realize that if Iran had a permanent presence there, they vowed to destroy Israel. Or if they increase weaponry to Hezbollah in Lebanon that again could lead to a major war and they're trying to block weapon shipments coming to Lebanon. There are a lot of ground convoys going through Iraq across Syria to Lebanon to arm Hezbollah and also to to arm Iranian backed militias. So Israel's trying to stop that. But the frightening thing you were talking about the the missiles being fired from the Gaza Strip just last week Israeli intelligence released a report that once again Iran is using civilian airliners to ship weapons and weapons components. The missiles that have been fired from Gaza into Israel and from Lebanon into Israel. They have not been guided missiles. They're sort of lobbed into the territory hoping that they will hit something. However last week it was revealed that some of these civilian planes are now delivering sophisticated guidance systems to Hezbollah so they can take these guidance systems, install it in the missiles, so that they can actually pinpoint specific targets in Israel. That is a major game changer in this conflict. Iran is really behaving in a dangerous, and reckless fashion, and the terror groups that you can Harry talked about they could not do what they do without the financial support of Iran and also the weapons that are supplied to these groups Veyron, Iran, they try to use their proxy, so they can have plausible deniability, but their goal is the destruction of the nation of Israel, and they receive guidance shows like they just give all these resources. If you do what you want. They're coming with that that's kind of the carrots. So that Iran is able to control these groups whether it's Hezbollah. Or you're talking about a group like Slavic jihad or even a moss they want to be able to control them and their actions. So they do this. The is talking about the weapons as incentives, but understand Iran's role in this just to underscore. But west is talking about using this aircraft as a military away of delivering military good to recognize terror organizations take to Gerald Jackie as well. He was discussing how this has been uncovered. This is something newly uncovered that. Iran has started to do what's happening in Iran is very aggressive because Syria means so much to them. So they fly on chartered airplanes or their military aircraft in Damascus missiles ammunition, commodities. Also, use commercial airlines to do the very same thing. And then they're driving through Iraq into eastern Syria and bringing also ammunition and supplies to that White House has said the quality. Iran and Hezbollah cannot be allowed to build an arsenal of weapons on Israel's border that threatens the region. Yeah, we have this question came in so interesting what Harry on Facebook. We will get your phone calls as well. We got callers hold on as well. One eight hundred six eight four thirty one ten if you want to talk to us on air that's one eight hundred six eight four three one one zero but call who called and said besides the United States, which countries in the Middle East back is against terror group supported by Iran. It's a complicated question because many countries that do not support Israel would would also don't support Iran in the Gulf states. There's some have more behind the seeds bit support of Israel. But certainly this again shows you this question it could be the entire thesis on the Middle East. Absolutely. You could certainly write a number of books on politics. I think it's clear beyond question that the public posture of most Middle Eastern countries. Is one of opposition to Israel on the other hand based on real politic, and the strategic implications of allowing Iran to run rampant in the Middle East, many of the same Middle Eastern countries, which publicly oppose Israel are actually working covertly with Israeli authorities to fort Iran, and this is highly necessary because Iranians are acting as mastermind of much of the conflict in the Middle East is something we need to address strategically Israel is working on that as we speak. When we come back. We will play for you over the weekend. Iran's foreign minister putting Israel and Saudi Arabia the same category. The US support it.
