Thank you, Isaac more in half an hour from him. Now let's go to our business esque in Hong Kong, Andrew Wood there as ever, and Andrew Evergrande, which is one of China's biggest property developers, says it's massive debts have put it Under tremendous pressure. How much does it Oh, about $305 billion and a lot of people are very worried that this money is not going to be repaid. Um, bonds, which usually trade apps. You know, If you borrow a dollar, then the bond will probably trade at $1. They've fallen down to 27 cents, which suggests that people are really Assign a very low chance of that is that money being repaid, ever grants? Big problem is that it's not just into property development, which has a lot of big boom and bust cycle at the best of times, But it's also expanded into a lot of other areas from sports teams to electric vehicles. And shares in the main Evergrande company and some of those other companies to have been plunging on the stock market here in Hong Kong, the main company it shares down to their lowest since December 2014. Now the company has said that it's hired advisors so that it can try and sell some of its assets and avoid defaulting on some of those those liabilities. But you've had you've had investors at the headquarters of Evergrande just over the border on the mainland of China, actually turning up at the company's headquarters and Started to starting to protest. So there's a lot of people are very, very unhappy, very, very worried about this at the moment. So much money such a big companies that one of those situations where it's too big to fail, will have to be bailed out. Well. In the past, Beijing has bailed out big companies that got into trouble, usually by borrowing too much money, but I think things have changed over the past 55 10 years. Basically since she Jinping took over as president, and he's warned a lot about you know, he doesn't seem to particularly like big companies that expand too quickly and expand too quickly by borrowing money, basically taking enormous risks with them with the investors cash and and so on. And so I think this time there is a chance that Beijing might just say no. Let Evergrande go bust. In order to basically teach other people are the companies that it's not a good idea to borrow too much money. I'm sure part of the company might well be saved. But I think this would be a good idea to as they say to frighten the chicken. Uh, attack that you can frighten the monkey. And you would thank you very much indeed. Now. This is news day to the latest step in the slow progress of charges against Britain's Prince Andrew in America. The prince's lawyers are challenging the jurisdiction of the U. S court to hear a civil lawsuit. On sexual assault allegations against him. Virginia Jeffrey says the prince sexually abused two decades ago when she was 17. Prince. Andrew has constantly denied the accusations. I found out more from our correspondent in New York, not a topic. Really you look at this. This was a first hearing in Virginia Jeffries case and what it did is looked at two big issues. So 11 hand you had the prince's lawyer. Who the court just found out that day was going to be representing him, saying that the papers were not properly served that they did not go through the right channels. And in fact, he didn't even think this U. S court. Had jurisdiction in the matter. He was telling the judge that he thinks this should be decided by the high court in London to decide whether the case can proceed. His other big point was that they believe that there is a settlement that exists from 2000 and nine between Virginia Jeffrey and Jeffrey Epstein. Of course, that is a friend of the prince, who committed suicide while awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges, and those documents are currently under seal. But they believe there is a release in that, uh, that may make it so Prince Andrew would not have any liability. And any lawsuits moving forward, so that's what Prince Andrew's lawyer brought to the judge to discuss. Mr. Frey's lawyer, David Boies, disputed all of those arguments and said he does feel that they went through all the adequate channels to serve the papers. So now here we are, where the judge is going to hear arguments on this in a few weeks time, right, So that's the status of the hearing as well. So in a sense, it's set the argument for a few weeks time. What are the implications for the prince? Just remind us can he be made to testify in the U. S court on this? What?.

Norway It's Europe's largest oil producer, and it's just had a general election, which might make the country go green. But the country is very green already has huge numbers of electric cars, for example, but It makes an enormous amount of money out of oil and gas. Will they really give up that wealth?

So he is either the Labour Party and also the the going to be forming a new government together with out of two Party in what would most likely coalition government center left coalition government. Okay, now everyone paying attention to sort of environmental credentials and so on. Can you just explain? Why was it that this election of all elections suddenly became about that issue? Why did it take off like that? The environment to problem has been something, uh, in the background for many years and be impressing problematic, especially expressed my young people. But most recently, there's been the U. N report about Climate change, which has really shocked many people on that date of the record number of people who signed up to become members of the of the Green Party, which did very well in the okay. That's interesting, but really are you UN report, which I seem to remember was the one that we were. We were covering a few a few weeks ago. It was the one when they said code Red. This is a warning. Humanity is going to be extinguished unless we do something we reported and we moved on. But it seems that it landed in Norway did it. But why was that? No, it's also one of the biggest. Its biggest export is, uh, oil. And so on One side, you have, uh, very country move into the green erection with many electric cars and investment on the other side. You have It's excellent being oil, so there's a sort of sense it it was wanting to change that the most. Um, the Green Party wanted to even close oil production. William a few years time decision. Now it's we'll be speaking. What will happen that most likely, Okay. Production will continue right? Because because that's interesting isn't because many green campaigners are saying what you need to do to actually fix the climate. The only thing we have to do is you have to keep Fossil fuels in the ground. Now, if that's what the greens are saying, and if the winner the labour leader has to make a coalition Those are going to be quite difficult discussions. Is there any appetite? Do you think Norwegians would want to just turn their back on what is, after all the source of their wealth? Norwegian. Those, uh Concerned about, of course, job loss and a source of big source of wealth. The Norwegian social welfare assessment one of the best in the world, and was built a lot on the money made from, um, extraction, Obviously Patient, But many would be with many wish and hope that, uh, the greener sources of energy and I spoke last week, the now prime minister was in the north Norway in Arctic Norway. I met him there, and I asked him about That boy about today closing, Oh production, and in his opinion, it was important to maintain it because the knowledge and experience built in the oil sector could be essential to do to make the green shift. So and so in a sense of Look, there would be, um there would be the knowledge and experience would need to be exactly so. You need oil money in oil expertise to move to a non oil economy.

The International Judo Federation suspended Noreen more on that in a moment, who has since confirmed his actions were politically motivated. Decision of both Muslim judo competition competitors has prompted the IOC to release a statement and here is that statement. The IOC is always concerned in these cases and is monitoring it very closely. The IOC has been very clear that nondiscrimination and autonomy are things we will not flinch from. So now we'll have to wait and see how they deal with Abdel Rasoul. Shouldn't the word have been in when it comes to the International Judo Federation, Suspending Narain shouldn't that word suspended be changed to expelled. Can you be expelled and be gone? From the locale. You would think maybe that's the case.

It's an organization that does all types of interesting talks and information giveaways at cetera. Here are some of the takeaways that i took from the meeting. Which was centered around the united arab emirates. Israel peace normalization deal that rolled out in august. Friedman started out by talking about the june twenty nineteen peace to prosperity summit which was organized by the us hosted by the kingdom of bahrain in an attempt to share a new economic. Peace plan for israel and palestine. Friedman said that president abbas of the palestinian authority literally ripped up the plan in front of the officials rejecting trump's vision president trump that is and hoping to isolate the us. He said that this did not stop the delegation from continuing to try to make deals with other countries simultaneously. He said the united arab emirates was a tough deal to strike peace with but ultimately the country said yes in an attempt to increase the profile that they have with the united states and bring more cultural interest exchange between the uae and israel however the country wanted to do all of this while respecting palestinians in their perspectives one question which the moderator of the online event asked was if friedman could share some of the tough moments from that negotiation. Friedman said. He didn't want to rehash or relive those moments because they were very tough for him. He says what really matters in a negotiation is that you're dealing with people of faith and goodwill and good intention which according to the longtime diplomat is something that any polish negotiator can identify immediately and to finish us off with a happy story.

They wanted the international judo federation to hold the Tokyo Games because this would demonstrate. And they said especially as a contact sport because you're right up in each other's faces, it would show that it was safe to hold events and then something could then point to for having the Olympics the fact at the judo guy said, no actually takes a sort of a little bit away from their wind when they say, Oh, we can do the Olympic safely and these guys are like, no not right now you can't. They did say the Olympic Committee did say we cannot afford a failure that could impact the Olympics. So really the other side of the coin was if they had the Tokyo. Grand, Slam. and. There wasn't outbreak of Corona. It actually would have made it seem more dangerous. To have the Olympics. So it was a double edged sword. If they don't have it, it's like maybe the Olympics and safe they do have it. There is the risk of an outbreak if there's an outbreak now what's going well, we can't have the Olympics now there's going to be an outbreak but. At the end of the day. Yes, there will not be Tokyo Grand Slam in December. Since. We're talking about the Olympics. The Olympic athletes are going to be exempt from all travel restrictions Japan. So basically, it does make sense if you're from another country and you WanNa come competing Olympics want to I mean. Like a lifelong dream I assume you're going to come and compete in the Olympics. You're not going to be stuck with the same travel restrictions as tourists and other people. But you are expected to monitor your own health. You have to test negative. Sort of at home, and then within seventy two hours, you have to come to Japan. then. You're going to get tested again when you come to. Japan. It was the athletes are expected to monitor their own health was a bit of a Because if you followed any kind of major sport. You may notice that athletes aren't always one hundred percent. Honest. In how they care for themselves. By this I mean Steroids Drugs and doping. So if someone their sole purpose is to win the Olympics, they're perfectly willing to lie about not having corona virus. To keep their spot in the Olympics. So that to me is sort of the. A problem or risk taking by putting that in the athletes and you're probably going Oh. My God athletes are super honest and good people and I'm sorry pretty much all the athletes I know. We'll do whatever they have to do to get an edge, and if that means saying, they don't have corona virus. That's on the table. Some other things that have come up over the last couple of weeks about the Olympics they're going to try to design a more simplified version. This is to lower cost and protect against covid nineteen. There are two hundred suggested or planned cuts to the Olympics and they're going with fifty total at the beginning. So that doesn't mean they're finished yet, but they've already decided on fifty. They're. GonNa Reduce Office space reduce the amount of vehicles that's mostly has to do with money. There are going to cut the welcoming ceremony. So big ceremony where everyone's in a stadium walks around and ways, flags and fireworks that's out that will cost, and it means there's not going to be a big event where all the people are together. So they're actually going to try to minimize a lot of that stuff, it means less of a show but honestly, I hated that part of the show anyway I always thought it was like this weird spectacle that. I don't have the athletes look like they don't want to be there. Expect the next Olympics should or when it happens to be a more simple affair if an athlete gets covid nineteen, they're out. Just set. So if you are diagnosed with it, you are out of the Olympics. If there is a vaccine. You are obligated to take it. Now there are different countries coming up with different vaccines I. Just read an article recently about China that is has a vaccine in, it's not really been tested. They're already inoculating people. So essentially human trialing it on their actual population. With out consent I assume it being China but. There is a vaccine out there. Now other companies are saying they're very close to having a vaccine as well. So we'll see how well that works out. They are also planning on using facial recognition for contact tracing. So you go in. These sort of security cameras are gonNA scan your face. As you walk round it's GonNa, keep track of where you are. So if someone in it gets covid are they can let people know so they can get checked. Last time I talked about the scam. With some payment systems ones that I've been very. Interested in because I've actually started trying out a couple of new ones other than ones I was using before. The phone withdraw skim now includes pay pay pay is the biggest mobile phone payment system in Japan. and they're they're seventeen cases totaling one point four, one, million yen. And the four other companies that are unnamed for security purposes I'm betting because they haven't plugged their security holes yet. Therefore. If you say this company, their payment systems, still you know breach -able..
"international judo federation" Discussed on Ninja News Japan
"Back in two thousand fourteen before Ninja News Japan existed. There was a court case. So the prosecutors tried to sue a guy. WHO's a tattoo artist is named TIKEY UP They said. That since tattooing basically had an impact on the body. That could be dangerous. That you had to be a medical practitioner to do it because this tattoo artist was not a medical practitioner. He was guilty of a crime. Basically personnel doctor I. Don't know what the actual crime would be in that case. Practicing medicine without a license. Not Impersonating. Dr. This case maybe a week ago. Oh last week there was no engineers Japan. There was a holiday on Monday and Tuesday Monday was respect for the age day, which is me because I'm old. Tuesday respect for Nature Day or something like that. I decided to respect nature by going zip-lining. You'd like to know what that's like. It's Very Much To did. That's pretty much zip-lining experience for me. It was fun though. Highly, recommend if you're dating. You should take your partner zip-lining. It's exciting but incredibly safe. So it's got a little bit of thrill. It's not dating advice show. We're going to stop that right there. This case has recently come to a conclusion. Then the conclusion is that Tattoo artists are not doctors nor should they have to be The Supreme Court of Japan. has rejected the. Appeal. The Tattoo artist must have a medical lices. They had to do something that I really enjoy. If you listen engineers Japan for any amount of time, you've heard me say that things need to be defined before we could actually make decisions as to whether they're right or wrong. Especially when it comes to court. Cases. If, you don't define the terms. You don't know what you're talking about. People are just saying whatever they want. The court defined some terms. I got TURGID. Medical Acts. They said actions considered medical treatment or health guidance. The could cause harm if not done by a doctor. So it's pretty good. It's basically if if it's something for your health and if it's done by someone who hasn't studied medicine, it could actually make you worse. So that is sort of the definition of medical, act? Tattoos on the other hand require artistic skills different from medicine, and it cannot be assumed the doctors. Do the Act Exclusively Because for the most part. Tattooing relatively safe. As. Long as everything's sterile taken care of it's actually very hard to damage a person's health with Tattoo needles sure might feel a little who I got needles stuck into me for hours yesterday feel a bad. But that goes away pretty quickly. So they tried to sue Tikey for a hundred and fifty thousand yen. Six years ago she can see that's incredible. How long state it actually would have been easier of course to just pay the hundred and fifty thousand yen fine. But what they're trying to do is get rid of Tattoo artists tattooing. The only downside to this. Is it would have been really cool. To have some person, go through medical school and become a doctor, and then become a tattoo artist. Just to prove a point. Just to be pissy because you know someone would have done it despite them because a medical license isn't the same as becoming a surgeon something like that. I'm sure a very competent person could become. A licensed general practitioner because they don't ever intend to employ those skills for actual medicine, they just want to become a tattoo artist, the physical side, the skill side, the surgery side wouldn't be as important. They would just have to have maintained artistic skills but I think if this had gone through some Japanese Tattoo artist would have gone to medical school and passed the exam and become a doctor, and then where would they be? Because this guy can touch you everyone is much as you want and there's nothing they could say about it and that to me would have been a fun result clearly not fair to all very talented tattoo artists. Who couldn't pass the medical exam? Not to not capable I'm just saying you know maybe their life took them a different direction it wasn't studios. Certainly, I had that experience I couldn't be a doctor. I'm not dishing on them for not being able to be a doctor I personally for the exact same reason cannot be a doctor I couldn't do the studying. But. You don't need a medical license to tattoos and Japan Tattoos in Japan for the moment are safe I'm sure they will try to find some other tack to attack Tattoo Artists in the near future now that this one has failed, but the fact that each one of these cases takes five to six years to come to a conclusion means we have another five years before there's sort of something the lack of getting the way people getting tattoos if that's what you want. You don't care about this. I do. The, International Judo Federation is not going to hold the Tokyo Games slam. Slams very appropriate name for judo competition in December. Because Corona. And that's sensible. And that shows to me. Sort of again, you've heard my mentality, my thinking is, let's shut everything down for another two weeks. I'm not saying like businesses and stuff but sorry, all the social fun things events just two three more weeks to stop it. And then we'll probably be safe from corona virus. What I really want is four weeks I want two weeks to get it to zero, and then two weeks at zero, and then we can all go out and have a good time again..

"The Indians are the second largest consumers of tobacco behind the Chinese Indians. Still mostly smoke rolled rolled paper cigarettes vaping hasn't really taken off their still. India's cabinet announced today that they will be banning. E cigarettes do to public health concerns. The move comes as countries like the United States deal with increasing problems with young people in vaping in the US seven recent deaths have been linked to vaping related illnesses or joined much hobbies such a reporter based in Mumbai. She said the ban seemed to come out of nowhere. People are really surprised. Everybody seems to have thought it just came out of the blue. There's really we know precedent for it. And of course everybody on social media is quick to jump into all kinds of conspiracy theories including that the government is colluding to fourche actual tobacco sales because the government is a shareholder in one of our biggest tobacco companies. The tobacco market in India is huge but what is the vaping market like like I mean do you see people on the streets vaping not at all so I just spent month in England and I felt like when I got out of the subway every tenth person at least had a vape in their hand in India. I know one person who uses a vape and I've checked around in my circle and most people know perhaps a handful of people young people seem to smoke it mostly. I think in the IT industry or maybe in hip or circles but it's just not that prevalent I was talking to somebody who said he's got access to Amazon India's sales figures for vape cartridges and that number every month is about fifteen thousand orders. That's just not a lot especially compared with cigarettes. I've also been told that most vapors here by their their cartridges abroad but it is very expensive and maybe that's one of the reasons it hasn't picked up if vaping hasn't really taken off in India why the preemptive measure sure I mean. Is it an overreaction or is it trying to prevent something from happening. Well the government's done says that it is a preemptive proactive measure to protect the youth who art linking vaping with being cool and so they're nipping in the bud so to speak before it can become a full-blown health crisis. Whether that's true is hard to tell because it seems like they're pretending something before it had even begun to catch on sixty percent. India doesn't even know what vaping is according to some statistics. I've seen it's interesting because vaping in the US and I think in Canada and other places it's already a public health issue and it's very much around young people. It's interesting that a country as large as India is taking action on something that other countries like the US hasn't really come to grips with. I'm surprised as well in fact. I was shocked that India beat the US to it. There's so much public debate happening in the US. We see that president trump is talking about it and there's print media and podcasts covering it. We really haven't and hut any of that happening. In fact as we speak it's still listed for sale on Amazon India and I didn't go ahead and purchase it but I have been able to add to my car art. On despite the ban night could still be buying it so it's all very confusing. Is there any kind of chatter that maybe India did this because it cam cam and therefore score points as sort of being on top of this issue which isn't even an issue but it's absolutely possible. There is some chatter there's even some charter saying thing that Modi's trying to carry points with Donald Trump Chevy one of the reasons why we did the story is because India such a huge country as we've said the second largest consumer of tobacco products and sitting in the US which is grappling with this vaping epidemic among young people and public health officials worried about it we wake up today and India's banning it so it seems like wow they're way ahead of the US but it sounds like it's not looking like this big achievement in India. It seems like a lot live sound and fury but there's really not much substance to it. It's affecting a very tiny minority of people in urban corporate India possibly in the creative tech industry who can even afford this as an indulgence and even with the bandit got enough and more cheaper alternatives anyway way really is a dump squib in some ways. Jovi such is reporter in Mumbai. Thanks a lot Javi. Thanks Carol did President President trump make a troubling promise to a foreign leader us a potential bombshell on Capitol Hill today president trump has denied any wrongdoing in a tweet president trump trump said he would only do what is right and only do good for the USA he was responding to a story in The Washington Post that report has not been verified and trump calls it fake news news but Congress is taking it seriously at the heart of the story is a complaint from whistleblower within the US government the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community Michael Atkinson reviewed the complaint and found it both credible and a matter for urgent concern. Atkinson even breached protocol to report it directly to Congress after his boss refuse to do so today Atkinson the inspector general or I g appeared before the House Intelligence Committee and believe it or not. That's where the story gets really complicated aided. Atkinson informed Congress that he couldn't give any details us because the Department of Justice had interfered by ruling the information privileged the chair of the House Intelligence Committee Democrat Adam Schiff says this after the closed-door meeting given that it involves something that the I G has already found to be serious serious and credible and evidence of wrongdoing of one kind or another there is no privilege that covers that there's no privilege to conceal that there's no privilege to be corrupt shift was careful not to name president trump as the subject of the complaint but given what had happened already and ruling out possibilities shift concluded needed this it likely involves either the president or people around him so what exactly is going on here. Margaret Taylor is a fellow at the Brookings Institution and a senior your editor of the law fair blog previously she served as a senior attorney for the House Foreign Relations Committee. So we don't know a whole lot about the content of the actual actual complaint what we do know is that the process by which whistle blowers are supposed to submit these complaints to Congress was not followed in this instance since the relevant piece of legislation laid out a very specific process for people in the intelligence community to put forth whistleblower complaints that they wanNA communicate indicate to the Congress. I they submit them to the Intelligence Communities Inspector General and that Inspector General is supposed to be the one who makes makes the decision about whether the information is credible and whether it is urgent concern and if he determines that is the case in this case. It's the inspector general's. His name is Michael Atkinson. He is required then to submit the information to the director of National Intelligence which is Joseph Maguire who serving in an acting capacity capacity at this point and in seven days after that the director of national intelligence is required by the statute to submit the information to the Congress. The last piece didn't happen and so. How do we even know that Joseph Maguire didn't do what he's supposed to do. Well we understand from public. Reporting is that the Intelligence Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson actually alerted the committee himself that he had made his determination at submitted the information to the the director of national intelligence so the understanding in the process that is how chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Adam Schiff learned of the existence of this whistleblower complaint now the Washington Post is saying this whistleblower case involves president trump communicating with a particular Giller foreign leader. What's the significance of that. President trump meets with lots of foreign leaders so I think a significant is that the inspector general will of the intelligence community made a determination that whatever this complaint was was a matter of urgent concern was credible and and the relevant statute specifically says that does not include complaints that address differences of opinions concerning public policy matters matters aren't relevant under this statute so the inspector general clearly determined that whatever this complaint was didn't relate to differences of opinions concerning turning public policy matters and so the question is what was it The statue you know allows complaints before that address serious or flagrant problem uh-huh abuse violation of law or executive order or deficiency related to an intelligence activity so bottom line. How big of a deal is this. I think it depends on on what ends up being the actual content of the complaint. If the content of the complaint is really something that's flagrant flagrante and abusive then this will continue to be a big deal and I do think that if Chairman Schiff and the intelligence committees generally generally don't get the answers they need this will continue to fester. We won't see the end of this until the intelligence committees are satisfied that there is. It's not a real problem here. Margaret Taylor is senior editor of the law fair blog. She's also a fellow at the Brookings Institution. Thanks for speaking with US Margaret. Thank thank you athletes. Iran's national judo team are about to have a lot more spare time.

Championships Iranian saieed molay walked off the MAT head hung low. He was the defending world champion. Dan and he'd lost land to to kill what I saw in Tokyo. I left the arena with tears in my eyes. I will never forget what happened. I could have achieved my Third World Championship medal and my second gold medal. I was so ready unprepared. I'd seen that readiness in myself in that day in that very place I made a promise to God and myself that someday in that same place I have to win the best metal he he said during the tournament Iranian officials had called him multiple times and told him to withdraw that's because if he kept winning he eventually face soggy mookie an an athlete representing Israel. Here's why that would have been a problem. Iran's government does not recognize Israel and therefore refuses to compete against it. It's not the first it's time Orion. Officials have asked their judo athletes to boycott the Israelis but this time was different was the first time ever that we had evidence the evidence was was testimony says Nicholas Messner a spokesperson for the International Judo Federation and telling an athlete to throw a match for political reasons violates international rules calls hence the ban M- ally the Iranian athlete refused to withdraw from the tournament but ended up losing before he had the chance to face his Israeli opponent. Malaysia has fled to Germany his goal. He wants to go back to Tokyo to compete again in the twenty twenty. Olympics Nicholas Messner says the International Judo Federation is working with the Athlete to make this happen now. You're studying all the possibilities because he dream remains because speaking to games mixture mixture and to win the gold medal. The reaction in Iran has been mixed. The leader of Iran's judo program has called the ban unfair. The band certainly comes eh interesting time for Iran tensions are especially high right now between Iran and Israel Israel admitted to recently bombing a weapons facility being used by Iran mm-hmm but international competition at its heart was designed as a way.

People husband and wife team barrister Jonathan and solicited Carolina. Plus, a group of voluntary barristers, and lawyers you KFI a funded entirely by private donations and subscriptions, and Jonathan started by explaining to me how it's all set up. It is an association of lawyers who use legal skills to support Israel. We'll have an associated charity you can buy charitable trust, which deals with education relating to lure and his rail and also helps victims of antisemitism, particularly antisemitism related to Israel. And is there an anti semitic function here in this country to absolutely it is a major issue that we've face in Britain's days, the resurgence of antisemitism and the. The increase in coverage of it. And reach it, particularly with the stability of the internet to magnifies these antisemites saying in a sense, the internet has provided the legal industry and the legal framework with a real to action. That's right. I think there are other factors as well. Let's have affected the growth of anti sem-. What are they I think there's a real problem with media coverage of Israel. That is also stated with the extensive use by organizations hostile to Israel of international bodies producing and using their very large resources to produce propaganda. That's gainst Israel, portrays completely distorted picture of Israel, and how Israel rates let me mention an organization that to perhaps thinking of when you mentioned that the United Nations who. Sent many anti Israel motions. When compared to for example, commands and Iraq and very southern a column of maybe Arab states and sympathetic states to the Arab world that produce a litany of arguments against Israel, which in themselves are problematic, but actually wider than that do prompt kind of antisemitism in the United Nations fifty seven members of the organization these limit conference and together with that developing country allies, they actively control most bodies in the United Nations and therefore able to deploy them to support their efforts against Israel. Now to that end. You say you're a disadvantage you team up with other organizations that are more tooled up. So that you can take them on to- to will. Yes, we work with a large number of organizations in the UK and around the world. Sometimes we do. Joint projects with them. And sometimes we as with them. But I would emphasize that. Although we are in one sense small primarily voluntary organization. We do have some very good lawyers in our association, and we have been able to achieve some I would say quite amazing successes over the few years since we were established. I think our opponents got a headstart on us in terms of using the lower in recent times to promote that 'cause we are some sent catching up, but we are beginning to get our act together on our side. And I think we pay significant part in that Jonathan we really must talk about the incentivisation of the Palestinian Authority in praying. This citizens to kill Israelis. That's what's happening every time a terror attack occurs. Some kind of pension is then played by the PA to the purse. The family that perpetrated the act of terror the murder and these salaries are very high. They go up the more the longer the prison sentence, and hence the more serious crime. And in the case of murders. They are much higher than ordinary salaries paid to doctors, and nurses, and teachers and other people doing proper jobs in the Palestinian Authority. So we've been very concerned about this. The British government transfers very large sums of money to the Palestinian Authority tens of millions of pounds each year out of this and other monies terror salaries being paid in the account for seven eight or nine percent of the Palestinian Authority's budget. It goes to salaries that reward terrorism it will be a point of disgust to every British taxpayer that they are sponsoring murder. That's what's happening. That's right. And so we pointed this out to the government and said that they were committing criminal offenses under British terrorists legislation which prohibits people funding terrorism more transferring funds that may be used for the purpose of terrorism. And so they did change the system now the grants provided by the part within Chesham development paid into a special EU account only used pay salaries of ordinary civil servants. So that that's a slight improvement. Although, of course, it does release other funds for the past authority to pay to the terrorists. But the thing that we found was that Price Waterhouse Coopers the accountants have been auditing the account through which these sums were being paid, including the money to terrorists. So we brought a complaint against PW see under the. Guidelines for multinational enterprises, which require multinational enterprises, and we say Peter is a multinational enterprise, they are required to observe ethical guidelines and to seek to mitigate any adverse effects on human rights of activities in which they are involved, and we said far from mitigating the impact of human rights of this fund. They're actually exacerbating it by providing cover for the British government say this process is all auditor. And we know exactly where our money is going. That's ministers repeatedly toes and peas who queried this these activities, essentially PW see was providing cover for that. And the current situation is that the British national contact point the guidelines, which is part of the department for international trade has held that. There is case that requires further investigation. They may. The preliminary assessment and interestingly PW see their response to it was say, well, our engagement was very narrow tasks to look whether any of this funding was being paid to sport terrorism. So it seems to me that the bigger the business the more international. It is the more amoral it can be which is where you step in. That's right. We are not deterred by persons. We will seek to ensure that the law and regulatory guidelines requirements that that to sport human rights are in force where we can my favorite win really is the one which really launched us because it was right after we formed this when we Roni are very small number of people. But this was the year after the flotilla ring. Putting the Matvey mom rea- had sailed from his STAN bull and had been arrested at sea by the idea, but with casualties Israeli soldiers were badly wounded and nine of the Turkish terrorists were killed now. The following year, the HAMAs ported? People assembled an even bigger fertility of ten ships to sail from Greece, and we managed through legal means to get this quietly arrested import in Greece without having to have that military intervention that is a massive achievement. So no bloodshed Johnson. One of the biggest wins has to be the United Arab Emirates as the stage for international judo where in twenty seventeen Israel had to compete as something ascribed to international competition. Whereas two years later, they could win a gold be Israel and have the Hatikva blade above the ABA Darby games logo. That's right. They in two thousand seventeen the Isreaeli judokas had to compete mealy as members of the International Judo Federation. So rather ridiculously the metal table read. Russia five golds. International Judo Federation to golds and the anthem that was played. When Israelis won the gold with that of the International Judo Federation. We and I say others intervene, but our approach is very specific. We refer to the rules of the sporting bodies the rules of the International Judo Federation prohibit discrimination, and the International Judo Federation is also a member of the International Olympic Committee because judo isn't Olympic sport. And the International Olympic Committee has rules as well. The pre bit discrimination require on Asians be treated equally. So we bring in the rules. And that is a powerful argument. And we were delighted to see following a very clear intervention of the International Judo Federation saying the tournament will be withdrawn from Albuquerque unless permitted Israeli athletes to is ready. Jokers to compete as Israelis abadaka complied, and the Hatikva was played and the metals were credited to Israel and the minister sport myrie Regev was able to attend and talk to the leaders of Abba Darby was shown round the mosque to Abba Darby, VAR alad, Martha beans.

You know, kids grow up playing Brazil has a very strong team as one of their Marquis events in the Olympics, France in Paris alone over a million people do judo everyday they have kids programs and things like that. So there are a lot of. I mean, even Russia has one of the best teams in the world. You're the Europeans are all really tough eastern eastern Europeans Asia. I mean, there's really no place you can go where does not not tough. All right. And so now you've transitioned to mixed martial arts, and you'll be fighting PF L eleven and how has the journey been for you. So far, how do give me some comparisons pro and con for the early start of ever made towards how judo is preparing for judo. Well, a little different just because you know, I was competing year round. There's no season in judo. So, you know, you have the PanAm games in the world championships. Then you have the European tour and the Asian tour, and you know, tournaments I pretty much fought fifteen twelve to fifteen times a year. So there wasn't a lot of time where I went where I wasn't competing, but I was also competing against multiple girls at every tournament. So it wasn't like you just had one person to prepare for you had pair for you know, the entire roster of top athletes. So making the transition to MA has been interesting. I think mentally just because number one you don't fight all the time. It's it's a lot harder to to fight back back back back just because the injuries and getting opponents especially for females and number two like thinking about one girl for six weeks or eight weeks or twelve weeks straight as like I found it's it's become a little it's it's a different kind of mental exhaustion, you know. But I'm joined it. You know, it's so. So different for me. You know, part of the struggle has been allowing the expert, you know, the judo player that I am to live inside as the beginner is also trying to you know, I'm a beginner in striking a beginner in wrestling. I'm a beginner an EMMY so kind of trying to find that balance and utilize my judo in the best way possible, but also grow as an enemy fighter every day. Did you know as you were winding down your judo career that m may was gonna be it for you? Or were there other options for you as far as the new career choice? No. I mean, it may wasn't even my first choice after the Olympics. I spent time our had talked about getting a job with the International Judo Federation. I talked about working with aid judo. I talked to WWE I talked to. I mean, I had all kinds of opportunities doors were open for me. But ultimately, you know, I realized that I wasn't done athletically or competitively, and and I knew that. I wanted to see what else is left in the tank, and I wanted to continue to try and challenge myself inside the arena, so Imia was where it would up. So this questions either gonna blow but my face or. To it. You know, what I've noticed in the wrestling world because our sport is full of wrestlers the ones that didn't meddle, you know, in the Olympics. Which is usually they're Altima goal. I guess they still had that Energi, and they were able to bring it over to mixed martial arts and become world champions. Like Randy couture and Dana Cormie, for example. And I wanted to ask you you did reach the highest levels in the Olympics. And so do you do you believe you also possessed that drive in our sport?.
