Egypt and the Arab Winter

"Arab spring. Well who doesn't love a democratic revolution. Who's not moved by. Brave protests is calling for the downfall of a brutal regime well a decade ago. That's precisely what happened in the streets of cairo and alexandria a wall of sound as egypt's vice president. I'm sulaiman announces that president hosni mubarak will step down the merciful. The compassionate seasons mahamat house entrusting mubarak has decided a month as president of the republic might have seconds after the announcement. Cairo erupted in celebrations. We are extremely happy. We are all aspiring future for egypt. We are not depending on the government anymore. This is the egyptian people. And this is the base of the new constitution now. The worldwide far the greater the egyptian uprising that culminated in the downfall of mubarak. This is ten years ago so february. Twenty eleven all. That was entirely understandable. Wasn't it after all all revolutions at least in the first few days they blissful and remember every tarn across the water arab world trembled. We already had president ali. Fleeing tunisia albany mubarak of course was toppled. Gaddafi was killed by fellow libyans. Assad of course. Vice the syrian sunni rebellion however. The egyptian uprising did not deliver a democratic outcome. Nor did the cycled arab spring really amount to a more liberal future for the region. Why noah feldman is professor of law at harvard law school. He's author of the arab winter. Tragedy noah welcome to. Abc's radio national. Thank you for having me take us back a decade ago so to the wave of popular protests that swept the middle east. There was something profoundly moving for anybody who cares about freedom in watching large numbers of people say enough is enough. We want to have a say in how things are done in our country and we want dignity and we want social justice and we want freedom. And that i think was the reason that all over the world people responded so positively to the arab spring. It's also the reason that the impulse to have these kinds of protests and change spread across the arabic speaking world to so many countries and so there was a sense of optimism but also a sense of gee what will come next and i think in some countries more than others a worry that what might come next might not be as positive as the protesters hoped what comes next. I mean for generations. It was widely believed that arabs. As opposed to site asians europeans africans latin americans. The widespread view was that arabs. Were uniquely allergic to democracy and of course the arab spring challenged narrative yet use site new book quote. It brought little good. The arab spring ultimately made many people's lives worse than they were before house are. That's a painful realization to reach especially for someone like me who believes very fundamentally that there is no country no culture no group of people organized by region or religion or language who have less in the way of aspiration to self government and freedom than any other but ultimately the reason i can conclude that it brought more harm than good. Is that in egypt. The process that began with democratization and experiment ended in a new dictatorship is bad and in many ways worse than the one that came before in syria the process of arab spring ultimate gave way to a vicious improve civil war. The gun to be sure by the syrian regime in its own defense that left almost half the population displaced either internally or externally and killed hundreds of thousands of people and pretty much the place in the arab world where things are measurably better as a result of the arab. Spring is the tiny country of tunisia. Which has actually the odds to build a functioning constitutional democracy. They still a lot of other problems. But that's just a tiny tiny piece of the much bigger picture in which things are either no better or in some cases much worse

"Was known as Egypt's Jon Stewart by the person and go by the hand, Mr Elevation and Belmont Stream he another feed. On its peak, a third of the country's population was watching his show. But Yusef came after Egypt's January revolution in 2011 Well before that. I feel like Anwar, an Egyptian political cartoonist were planting the seeds of revolution with their visual satire on where says before 2006 making fun of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was a big taboo. But around that time as a young man, he found a cartoonist who was pushing that boundary. I can remember one of these cartoons when he used to draw Austin Barak daily in the newspapers, not from his face, but from the back of his head. And the funny thing is that although he has been growing him from the back of his head, every reader in Egypt you that this hospital border so he didn't have even to mention him. He didn't have to show his face. And I think this was one of the cartoons that encouraged me. So Anwar young and eager, started doing the same thing. He published his cartoons and an independent Egyptian newspaper. Government. They're tolerated these cartoons and on where and others kept drawing them by early 2011. The cartoons were reaching a half a million readers of day onwards. Still in his twenties that this was what political cartooning was all about. Then on January 25th 2011. The Egyptian revolution happened way thought that we achieved our dream and we achieved the Democratic society. We were even asking ourselves. What are we going to do in the next days? So we achieved everything democracies here now we're having fair elections. The power is now in the hands of the people. What are we going to criticize now? So I asked on work to describe the first cartoon he drew after the revolution. Eyes did Remember this cartoon of one of the silliest cartoons that I have drone ever It was a surgeon coming out from the hospital. For a group off Egyptian people, and he's holding a baby and telling them that now you have a new country. Now you have a new Egypt around this time in early 2011, a satirist in Syria took a similar big step. Olof result was a celebrated political cartoonist who'd been active since the late 19 sixties like in Egypt, directly criticizing the government in Syria was a complete no, No. But in late January, 2011 with peaceful demonstrators in Syria being met with force imprisonment and torture. For that drew a cartoon showing the back of a chair and someone's sitting in it. But facing away a woodpecker is pecking away at the leg of the chair. It's going to break Oliver's that had had enough and I can under some aromas. LaMarca on P doesn't Syria Furs out, told me. He used to draw leaders using symbols like a chair because he was afraid to criticize individuals. But then he crossed the line and started drawing. The Syrian leader and Syrians took notice. His cartoons affirmed what they were feeling at it emboldened them. Nothing. A caricature. Art plays a big role in starting uprisings for some told me because it's close to the people. It plays the role of an instigator. But as we all know, it's nearly five years later, and the Assad regime is still ruling Syria with an iron fist, but Oliver's that is no longer there to fight the fight. In August, 2011 masked gunman pulled him from a car beat him, broke his hands and left him for dead on a road outside Damascus. People nearby came to his aid and got him to a hospital. A few months later for Zat fled to Kuwait, where he still lives. He now posts his cartoons on Facebook and Instagram, but they're banned in Syria. Still present has no regrets. Come on, son, he says. There are certain things that are critical in life like freedom, dignity, justice. If you don't rise up for that, then you stand for nothing for Egyptian cartoonist Anwar. He kept the fight going with his pen in Egypt for eight years after the revolution, But a combination of repressive politics, social media and a bad economy have basically decimated independent journalism in Egypt. Now he's drawing his resistance from thousands of miles away. That's because last March, the Egyptian government told him he had 24 hours to leave the country. Thies days he publishes his cartoons in the same Egyptian newspaper he always has, but from exile in Berlin. I asked Anwar if it was all worth it right now. I'm far far away like thousands of miles from my home. I'm really asking myself this question. And definitely I would say yes, on worse is people like him made history in 2011, and the story is still ongoing. As for Bassem Youssef, he's an exile to in California for the world on Carol Hill's Tomorrow on the show. We look at what role the U. S. Played in the Arab uprisings and in the Arab world today, authoritarians our captain place in large part by American support and by American money That's tomorrow. Here on the world.

"With new challenges more at noon dot com. I'm mark a woman and I'm sure in Jafari, this is the world we come to you from GBH. Boston NPR X Today We're looking back of the 10 year anniversary of the Arab uprisings on Earth shaking chapter that began on this day in 2010 with a desperate act of protest in Tunisia. The movement quickly spread across the Middle East and North Africa. When the revolution played out in Egypt a decade ago. It seemed like a success story at first, but that was then. Today, Many Egyptians will tell you things are worse than they were before people took to the streets in January. 2011 the world's Rupert Chinoy reports on the further erosion of human rights in Egypt. In the last few months. Civil rights activists say Egypt has become a nightmare. In October, the government more than doubled its pace of executions, putting nearly 60 people to death. In November, Egyptian state security arrested three prominent human rights leaders on terrorism charges after they met with Western diplomats there with the Egyptian initiative for personal rights, or E I. P r the N P. R is kind of Egypt's Casey of you. Or the end of the deep. It's that revolutionary and it's that important. Well, me. Yakub is the founder and executive director of the Tahrir Institute for Middle East Policy in Washington, he says it seems like the country is at its lowest 0.10 years after such a hopeful moment, a protest movement led by young Egyptians did the unthinkable in February, 2011. Opposing a military dictator Hosni Mubarak. People visit to spoken The voices have been heard, and Egypt will never be the same. And I can tell you like initially there was so much freedom of speech, freedom of expression and assembly. I didn't believe it. But by April 2011 Yakub remembers thinking that the different revolutionary factions were struggling toe work together. We were successful in creating a political vacuum, the only people that were around offering a viable option where the Muslim Brotherhood They were prepared and ready. The Muslim Brotherhood's Mohamed Morsi was elected president. That was something the Egyptian military would not let stand, Yakub says. By June 2013, he realized the military was going to win the power struggle. Remember writing on Twitter multiple times, then, like folks, it's no longer our fight. This is completely out of her hands. Other people are going to take over now. Unfortunately, Morsi was driven out of power by massive protests. Former military chief Abdel Fattah el Sisi took over. He was elected president in 2014. Then, in a syriza of new laws and executive orders, CC solidified his rule, he restricted due process and the freedom of expression the military used force to end anti government demonstrations. Human rights groups say political opponents were detained, tortured and killed. CC's government imposed new restrictions on non governmental organizations and international charities. Many NGOs were forced to close. Stephen McInerney is with the project on Middle East Democracy, a group that had helped train some activists and protest leaders. It's been a really steadily escalating campaign of targeting and repression, using lots of different tools, using lots of different laws. Of course, there are very difficult circumstances on the ground for anyone who wants to engage politically. At this point, he says, most Democratic activists have fled Egypt. Those remaining have gone underground. McInerney's organization uses encrypted communications to talk to them. Meanwhile, McInerny says Western countries have done little to support pro democracy efforts inside Egypt, and we've been disappointed to see you know other Democratic countries overlooked democratic values in order to profit by selling weapons like the U. S. And most recently France during a visit by CC Earlier this month, President Emmanuel Macron said France would continue to sell weapons to Egypt despite its human rights record. The Trump Administration has made the same decision allowing military assistance to flow and Donald Trump has even called CC, his favorite dictator. At that meeting in France with Macron CC dismissed criticisms about human rights Uncle mess alone. Yeah, saying he provides stability. That message still appeals to many Egyptians and two leaders in the West, says Stephen Cook. Senior fellow for Middle East studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. European leaders have looked the other way when it comes to human rights violations throughout the region, but particularly in Egypt, because they are concerned about Instability in North Africa affecting politics in Europe. CC has also defended his actions by saying they're necessary to fight terrorism, Cook says cease his reasoning goes something like this. It's unfair to criticize Egypt because this is human rights, as formulated by Egypt's Western critics is really just a form of colonialism. The Cook says. The recent arrest of prominent human rights activists in Egypt set off an unprecedented international outcry. Calling for their release. Where the U N the European Union members of the EU Parliament. Also Biden's pick for Secretary of state, Anthony Blinken, and celebrities like Scarlett Johansson. EI PR has for used working tirelessly and bravely on the front lines. A truly Democratic government would celebrate these men not imprison them. I think that the Egyptians understood after the outcry that they perhaps.

"And North Africa became known as the Arab spring. It's a 2011 protest in Cairo, Egypt, which is where the BBC Selena Beale is now she's on Skype. Sally remind us how this personal protest set off the Arab spring. Um Mohammed bars Easy Woz, a street vendor. He woz suffering from very dire economic conditions, and he set himself alive out of despair and then The Arab world was shaken like never before. Demonstrations and coals for freedom and democracy started in Tunisia, but but they swept across many countries, including Egypt, Syria, Libya and Yemen. And the big question now, 10 years on after the Arab spring. Are these countries better off Because there is this big debate? Is it better to have a chaotic country that is free or a stable country that suffers repression? So use Egypt than where you are now is a case in point. I think a lot of people will remember Cairo as the center of the Arab spring, the longtime authoritarian leader, Hosni Mubarak was forced out. That happened in February of 2011. So when when you look at the oppression that existed then and as you say, the chaotic freedom that might exist right now, what does that look like? Over the past few days I've been talking to human rights lawyers and journalists and A number of people who took part in the revolution back and 2011, and many of them agree that perhaps the days of work are far better than what we have now, many off those who took part in the revolution, whether they are Islamists or liberals. Many of them are either behind bars or living in a self imposed exile. Or they are in Jane the dream they once pursued the dream for a democracy. A Democratic free state is now very far. It's maybe a story from the past. But they were political prisoners kept certainly under Hosni Mubarak and people are afraid to speak out, even say his name on the street. I mean, are things really not better compared to what we have? Nowadays, A lot of people would say human rights lawyers that have been talking to recently they say, yes. Mubarak, Woz and Autocratic ruler. He was a corrupt president, but he's still allowed some space for freedom of expression. I mean some books. Some movies could criticize the authorities. We don't have any of that. Now you cannot have a movie, for example, or a song that criticizes the government. We know that the Middle East is not one big swath, but but where have There have been improvements, if any in countries that experience the Arab spring. And where have things gotten worse? Tunisia It's always the answer to that question. Tunisia is the biggest success story in the Arab spring. But Tunisians still complain as well about not having a very bright future for Young men and women who over throw bin Ali 10 years ago. But despite that a lot of Arabs and be the Tunisians for the margin of freedom of expression they enjoy and that we deeply miss in countries like Egypt, for example.

Social media censorship in Egypt targets women on TikTok

"Has its sights on tick talk. It's cracking down on users arresting and charging a group of women with a range of tic tac enabled crimes from harming family values to inciting prostitution. Reporter Jod reporter Dad, Kaleel has our story. At least nine women have been arrested for their tic tac videos. But if you look through their accounts, it's hard to see why. And focus most ofit here. There's Henning has, um, talking about the story of Venus and Adonis and Adela doing what social Media influencers do Giveaway iPhones life living room doing, But mostly the accounts of the Egyptian women who's been arrested and jailed are full of dancing to Arabic pop songs in that tic tac style feet, planted emoting with your eyebrows and gesticulating. What they're doing is basically what everyone as 1000 social media, just singing and dancing and Andi thing and nothing as if you would dance. In Egyptian wedding. For example, some of Husaini is with the International Service for Human Rights based in Geneva, Switzerland. She says. What distinguishes this group of Egyptians is that they're from working class or middle class backgrounds and that their women or girls, you have social media influencers who come for a teeth, backgrounds or upper middle class or rich classes and injured who would post the same type of content. But would not be targeted because that is sort of permitted within their social class. But why these women are working class women they and they have stepped out of what is permitted for them because they were dancing and singing on tech talk. They were charged under a cyber crime law passed in 2018 Yes, Mean Omar, A researcher at the top here Institute for Middle East Policy in Washington, says that the law is vague when it comes to defining what's legal. And what isn't. It was written using very broad terms that could be very widely interpreted and criminalizing a lot of acts that are Originally considered as personal freedom. Looking at it. You would see that anything you might post on social media. Anything that you may use, the Internet could be criminalized under this very wide umbrella. Egypt cybercrime laws, part of a larger effort by the government to increase surveillance of online activities as Tic TAC became more popular during the pandemic. Prosecutors started looking there too, says Omar. The state is simply arresting whoever says anything that criticizes its policy its laws. It's practices, even if it's just joking. It's not even allowed. But this isn't just about political dissent. Yes, mean Omar points. In the case of mental Abdel Aziz, a 17 year old. One day men made a live video on Facebook. She had her face awfully bruised, and she was stating that she was raped. And she was asking for help. The police asked me to come in. When she did, Omar says they looked at her tech talk account and decided she was inciting debauchery and harming family values in Egypt. Over the summer, There was a series of rape and sexual assault accusations by Egyptian women. They got a lot of attention. One case was against a group of well connected men. Women in Egypt were shocked but not surprised by what they were seeing online, says someone who's Amy in Egypt. Sexual violence on violence in this woman is systematic is part ofthe daily life off of women and to be sexually harass women are often discouraged from reporting sexual harassment in Egypt. So when prosecutors started investigating the accused in that high profile case, it looked like a real progress. The state run National Council for Women even encourage victims and witnesses to come forward. Oh, yes mean, Omar says it did not go well. Somehow, the prosecution decided to a charge the witnesses once again. Egyptian authorities looked at women's social media accounts and then investigated the women for promoting homosexuality, drug use, inciting debauchery and publishing false news. Omar says one of the witnesses who was arrested is an American citizen. All these information were used against them and then pro state media how let's wait in. Husseini says that when they profile the women in the TIC tac case, the message was clear. You have the Egyptian me they're basically, you know, really sensational headlines, Putting the photos off the women Not not not blurred using, you know, focus that have sex it Ian, for example, while using their names, publishing the investigations that are supposed to be confidential. Social media has played an important role in Egyptian politics. In 2011 crowds toppled the regime of military dictator Hosni Mubarak. That uprising was in part organized online with Twitter and Facebook. In 2018, the former Army general and current President, Abdel Fattah el Sisi swore he would maintain stability in Egypt must You said whatever happened in 2011 is never going to happen again. Samir Shehadeh of the University of Oklahoma, says Egypt's military backed regime is wary of the implications of anything posted online, even if its just dancing I think there has been heightened paranoia as a result of hysteria, in fact, by subsequent regimes, particularly the current regime, the Sisi regime About the possible political consequences of social media. And there's a tremendous amount of policing a Facebook and other types of social media and now tic tac. Although this is not apparently an overtly political, I think that they certainly have those kinds of concerns in the back of their mind as well. Of the nine women, Four have been convicted and three have appeals in October. Menon Abdelaziz, the 17 year old, who called for help online was just released from detainment Wednesday and is being dismissed with no charges. For the world. I'm Jagga Khalil.

"Has turned to Ethiopia now and rising tension over the huge damn. The country is building across the river Nile for Ethiopia, the grand renaissance. Stan will provide a vast amount of hydro electric power when it's up and running, but Sudan and Egypt which lie down stream or worried, it'll shrink, they're freshwater lifeline and what is an arid part of the world? Talks to reach some sort of deal on water flow through the dam has been going on for a decade. Well this week they broke up again without agreement, and then Egypt and Sudan accused Ethiopia of deliberately filling up the reservoir behind the DAB. Thus lowering water levels in the Blue Nile will in a moment we'll hear from the Ethiopian Foreign Ministry but first to Africa Regional editor Will Ross. He joins us. On the line and where we will we'll, We will get Ethiopia's version of events shortly, I say. But what are Egypt and Sudan saying exactly Well. Egypt and Sudan have slightly different positions. But if we look at Egypt first, it's always being against the building off this damn, and it was furious when the construction began. Back in 2011 without any agreement with the downstream countries, And in fact, when Hosni Mubarak was in power, he threatened to bomb any country that constructed or stopped the water flowing to Egypt, so they've always maintained a very, very strong stands. It really goes back to colonial treaties back in 1929 in 1959 that basically the 1st 1 gave Egypt the right to veto any projects upstream. In the 1959 agreement, Egypt and Sudan came together and agree to share the Nile's waters. But Ethiopia was not part of that deal s O. Even now, you know that the Egyptians Ah, sounding very angry of what's been going on, and that's you know, one of the reasons why there hasn't been an agreement on Sudan used to be fairly in favor really of the project because it saw that it would reduce flooding in Sudan. And it would also allow Sudan to get fairly cheap electricity from Ethiopia. But in recent months as the dispute has gone on, Sudan has been seen to really side with Egypt and have these concerns that Ethiopia sort of going alone. Bond for Ethiopia. How big a deal is this? Damn how important It's hugely important in terms ofthe the creation ofthe enough electricity to allow the country to develop much faster. So that's being the real underpinning reason for the whole damn isto. T push the country forward in terms of the electricity and allow development across the country. But it's also Mohr than that It's become a really source of pride for Ethiopians on Ethiopian people are really invested in the project because many of them have contributed financially to it. They've had money taken from Their salaries, another people of volunteered funds, so it's a source of pride for Ethiopians. It's also a hugely important project for the current Prime minister, Abby Ahmed. Who's under quite a lot of political pressure at the moment, and if, for some reason, he was seen to lose this kind of diplomatic spat. It would be ah, huge blow for him politically, but also for Ethiopians. They simply I don't think we'll accept the fact that Sudan and Egypt can tell them what to do. Well, thank you very much, indeed. Will Ross there Well, Dina Mufti is a former Ethiopian ambassador to Egypt. Now a spokesman for the Foreign Ministry. Why has the reservoir of Thie damn, apparently begun to fill You know, there is a huge rainfall in the extreme areas in Ethiopia, and there is a huge flood. Now what you can be on the satellites is actually I hope your reign the impact off that flood. That can so more in flow down the outflow otherwise is not an intended one is not something that It was closed down the damn That's what I want to tell you. So there's no deliberate attempt to fill up the reservoir by slowing down the flow of water. That's right. Is there going to be any sort of agreement with Egypt and Sudan? But you are committed to finding some sort of compromise. Are you Definitely Cuba is always committed was always ready to make way for a while. Why we have been looking that good. Definitely we are committed to reaching a LA agreement and we want to instill confidence in danced countries that is Egypt. We want to make sure that doesn't have their interest in the way are not intending to have anyone. We rather want tonight to be so oppressing noted. Author Confrontations. Well, Egypt does seem to be threatening some sort of action. Some sort of confrontation. Are you worried about some of the language coming out of Cairo? Come in those languages do not help Andi. They don't help to the process. You know, Bistrica treat the people understand to make together while others. I love you know, are blinded by night River Natural River that flows from each European, which tickets and comes from Ethiopia, You know it's flows from Ethiopia about major You know, we don't need to go for confrontation, because it's not in anyone's interest to hear to have confrontations. I mean, frightening and all those traveling crazes do not panic. Can you understand that why Egypt and Sudan may particularly Egypt. Why it is worried about the flow of water. I mean, if there is normal rainfall Then it may well be that there is enough water flowing down the Nile. But if there is a drought, and we know that the climate is changing, how can you guarantee that Egypt will receive the same amount of water? The job was always sensitive to the concerns off the downstream countries Egypt and what On that We don't intend to help them. We have been saying this several times to call. You know the construction of systematic stop why? I've been always floating them who have been sharing them that as And we are always trying to instill confidence in them. As to the concern. They have to express it, But I think it's ah, unfounded concern. I'm in simply the dumb. Is that it is the water that is regulated amount off the floor tow downstream countries simply Saddam hits the Taliban and flows down. Teo Buzz..

"The reason is the Palestinians haven't achieved stated that's why Jordan and Egypt have a cold peace with us. Oh I didn't mean that I mean saying that. I'm saying that that's what they're saying. That's what they're saying but that's not the real reason. Oh No I think the real I don't know I mean the real reason is because it's harder again to convince Your Street. Yup Right that of of of change and especially this is the point again especially when you are a country that has kept the status quo in your infrastructure development of your economy right because we have to remember. We can't separate it from that. These are countries that have absolutely no industry. They don't create anything right. Jordan at all doesn't even have resources. Egypt is resources are based on oil Big Picture and now we know what's happened in the last quarter of a century is that there's been a a large population explosion with no jobs for the youth and as they are of course more connected to world and they're having more of also education and health and all of those things are increasing but yet they have no future in terms of economy in growing. And so there's a tremendous amount of tension in these countries and that is a real big problem. So what's hard to keep? The things down is two point two common problem Israel and Palestinians. And we are helping you know. We are holding the gate against the enemy. It's a common authoritarian dictators. Trick of luck you know. Things are tough but we have to have this danger outside that we have to maintain. How do you do that while having a peace treaty with those people? Well that's a bit of a of a balancing act and that sort of what Mubarak did right and and and and and as we see. Now you know Jordan's King Is Not nearly as detective of those? As his as his father was King Sane right well Hussein played it rather openly about Although Times have changed also is it. That Abdullah isn't as creative as Hussein or that. The the tensions have risen including in Jordan. Nobody talks about back with David. With Hussein was an open right but in the age of Isis like the world is not the world part of it. I'm sure the person and part of it has to do with the game. Board has changed again but the game board has changed. I would argue. Mostly because of the policies in those Arab countries in terms of development in terms of economy democracy. All those trial part of the problem of having leader Mubarak who kept the status quo for thirty years and managed to clamp down on resistance. As you had you you you created a pressure cooker that ultimately exploded. Yeah you know you know. After the first decade of the Twenty First Century so status quo is not a great form of leadership in a world. That's involved in rapid change in a region of the world which is constantly undergoing rapid change. And it's always in the leaders interest to keep a certain degree of status quo but for their own self interest. But then you're not really looking ahead for the people and how to build a stable for them and you see Saudi Arabia struggling with that right. My Gosh if that right I mean that's the Middle Eastern dilemma of we like things the they are but we don't know how to maintain it. So how do we keep things the way they are and yet deal with change and exactly? And that's why I would point back how this connects to the Palestinian problem because the Palestinians issue is. They don't even have like a state to play with. Yeah right so. There's they don't have their status. Quo Is not viable meaning that saying that the Egyptians has viable either but at least from the leader's perspective. It is right from the people's per day in pal in the Palestinian territories in Palestinian Authority. Status quo is not really viable. They don't have a state but I would say it's more viable than to them than a two state solution. Because Estate imparcial Stein would be harder for them to do then to be the outsiders complaining that they don't have freedom and so you can't hold them accountable for not taking care of the people in other words. They're they're so dysfunctional. They're leaders that there that that the blaming the enemy thing is so basic because they can't do the basic things that government needs to do so this status quo is better for them than taking state which which from the outset from the West people say well. Why don't they just take a state? Park estate is better than no state. And you know you have their leaders saying all the time like we're not we're not selling anything. We're going to have all of Palestine back Monday and you know just you know. Help us to get there. And they're leading their people down meaning they'd rather be complaining about a bad status quo because that is more stable than changing the status quo in a way that we think would make things better for their people. Okay so you said it in a way okay agreed okay differently and that's fine yeah A and so now we go to. How like how does the trump plan was after ten democrats because right now first of all we saw last night tonight was last night or debates. Less debate. Last night was debate so there there was lots of commenting on the Palestinian right on the Palestinian Israeli also in the town halls sanders positions are extreme bringing them up so what is and what our sanders positions Well the first Brouhaha was when he said you know. I Israeli have a right to exist but so two Palestinians. I won't go to APEC because bigotry. Now this was surprising to nobody who pays attention. Cassandra's never goes to APEC because he's Sanders but people were like Wa- could you say that well that's just sanders being sanders and it was just entering the news cycle and people being you could be. You could be angry at it but don't be surprised right And of course the Democrat Front runner for a lot of Jews. That's Oh my goodness that's that's most Jews who don't want to the majority of American Jews who don't want to vote for trump. Now have a problem. Because most of those Americans who support Israel and don't like a person who is anti APEC as a haven of Bigotry. Because they won't talk to people and you know here's Bernie Sanders saying you know. I won't speak at a pack because they host people I disagree with Really Bernie Sanders like you'll go on Fox News and speak at Liberty University and and and say you know what Castro did some very good things but you want a pure APEC. So He's a weird double standard who he's willing to compromise with you know his value so he he's a troubling figure because he's he's more of a social he he's he's coming from a socialist utopia idea where nation national identity is an important so the Jewish state is not going to ultimately speak to him at some of the other What was the other Well he also said he'd think of moving the embassy out of Jerusalem right which was bunkers. Because by bonkers. It's pretty Barker's I mean American law says that's where the executive orders that's where we're working on the voters say it's a bit since a threat to the whatever. I don't debate now. So what are some of the other some of the other? Do you remember some of the other candidates like Pretty Standard Netanyahu? This week said You know Joe Biden's running for office. He's a good friend of mine and a true friend of Israel which I don. I still can't wrap my head around what Beebe was making that comment for I don't know what his political I mean. I think that's fair. But why is he meddling in American politics for Joe Biden and it was weird But like no other than that you know it depends on where you are on the line up the more to the right you are in the Democratic Party the more. But what's the what's the standard into Israel has to you know The the question of trump's trump's peace plan or don't plan because it's trump's and also because it it is totally one sided on Israel in any peace plan has to look at both sides fairly. It's the D democratic approach to Israel at the core is the Israeli left and the Republican approach. Israel is the Israeli right not surprisingly right traditionally. Both parties have been Very Pro Israel but in the Democratic Party you have a growing group on the left who are anti Israel and they are making inroads into the party. You know sanders who you know. Well he won't go to APEC because it supports bigotry openly a appreciate Linda Sarsour support. Who is I? Don't think free of accusations of Absolute Antisemitic Anti Semitism and bigotry. So so that wing of the Democratic Party is is troubling to many Jews especially when sanders is a front runner. Right so I would. I kind of noticed again. Which is the typical thing. Which is we've pointed out many times it's been pointed out we've go back to that article in the tablet that so my mind. Who wrote it about the the journalist about how the world sees Israeli Palestinian Amati Freed Multi Freeman? Thank you my premiums which is again. The paradigm is Israel has to solve this. So we're sanders and others are willing to call out. Israel's government and also they're willing to call out the trump plan whether you like trump planner. Not right there. The whole focus is on what Israel has to do and is without calling out the Palestinian by without saying okay when what to say okay like sand works with Mubarak Sanders is willing to say. Bb is a bit. Well what about? What about the Palestinian leaders right so you have all these Palestinian hours? Israel is committed to two million Arab citizens in this country about says no Jew should be allowed to live in Palestine and right okay at very senior. Very senior Palestinian figures call very racist things but destruction of Israel. And we're not just the right so whereas Palestinian television has preachers saying that you know Jews are evil and rotten and yeah and so whereas the Democrats who are willing to see are calling Israel. Maybe who calling out rightfully sewn is those bigotry are fun racists in the government and and he's Railly's complain about the government exactly. There's no equal call out on on that side and to me that is the continuing status quo. That was set up by far. And those other right daters far accuser proof that when his leader wants peace peace and also. What's the PC makes if you go back to again? Go back to the roots of why the Israel Egyptian peace process happened was because that Sadat wanted to switch from a USSR based to United States based support and that was very easy to do and that was a that was a bone and it helped and it worked and all of a sudden through the eighty S. Until today in the United States props up the government with tremendous amounts of money and support and almost no building of economic infrastructure. Right so that and and promotion of democracy And they're not promoting democracy in any way. So what you have is a government that is continuing to support the status quo where you're keeping a Middle East that is stuck in pre pottery types that the American approach farm policy in the Middle East was. Let's work with the dysfunctional Dictatorship stat keep things stable because we also like stability and and and and the chickens are coming home to roost to like that that that the chaos in the Middle East is years of not moving ahead is is. There's a price tag to that eventually that you'll have to pay and that's a huge migration because obviously I don't blame them people in the Middle East one a better life and better life is in the West Right. So why wouldn't they move right? Rats Elise Jews. Did we moved to places that are better right right you know. What would you say by the way to a defender Bernie Sanders? Who says look? The trump administration has weighed the scale so clearly on the Israeli side and blaming them for anything. They're just blaming the Palestinians for everything so Bernie has to speak up for the Palestinians and blame the Israelis for everything. I mean look I I I. My general thing is is you gotta call both if you want a real negotiate. If you won't be playing you've got club both sides to me. Why would you not ever? Of course the Palestinian sorry. The Palestinians are saying one thing to the West and another thing in Arabic in the Palestinians which has been since the Oslo..

D. U. leadership but now two of them seem to have teamed up so you you know it is not completely knock out the third man M. E. officially we have more than that in the race but what happened is of the three leading candidates just for the C. D. U. that's the party of angle Americal of the three leading ones M. the two two of them have ganged up against the third and not that of course gives the one in the lead of that pair of that do he's now the front runner his name is I mean like **** he's a front runner for other reasons as well he is the premier of north Rhine Westphalia last most populous state the one with the biggest party delegation and he's a moderate and represents continuity with Merkel but he's teamed up with the young up and coming health minister as it happens because of corona viruses in the news a lot you're cutting a fine figure he's considered very conservative together they make a pretty good team which puts the third one under pressure unfortunately gets even more complicated than that yes it does it does in in in in what is a complex field in German politics if we look at competition for the CD use and Andreas and when they see it coming from Katie there's concern about the rights and and and at the AFT at the on the release of of them in gender politics on the left as they have very strong performances over the greens in the Hamburg election that's not representative of Jenny as a whole but he's a bit of a trend isn't it do we see the CD you trying to branch out and keep on the grounds that he's being taken out by either well by the greens is is that's an option for them well then if you put your finger on it and by the way the hamburger is not representative of of the country but ease it happens to be that the result the greens got is representative of the country they are really the strongest gainers since the last last election in two thousand seventeen because they represent not just the consciousness about climate change and environmentalism but also an open society as opposed to a close one with respect to migration and the CD you as you just said is has sort of been different races around the country has been losing roughly equally to the greens on one side and the AFT on the other and that's the way they're being squeezed in that center in that middle ground and if the of the candidates unless let's mention one of the other ones so Armin Laschet wood is considered one to go for votes in that on that last center left center ground and the former coalition with the greens to become chancellor his main rival fleet of these maths is is it what what was out of politics for a long time is really figure from the nineteen nineties and would you try to get votes back from the A.
