Marc discusses his new book "Except for Palestine: The Limits of Progressive Politics" with his co-author Mitchell Plitnick.

"Mitchell. Good to see you man. Of course i see you all the time because we not only wrote this book together but we are now going around talking about this book all the time that we are in. So this is kind of a weird podcast. Because i'm sort of interviewing you. And i'm kinda just talking to you about a book that we wrote together so it's a strange strange thing to do. I've never done an interview like this before. But we're going to figure it out but before we talk about the book. Let's talk about the coffee. I in honor this momentous occasion in drinking arabic coffee you know what they say in palestine they call it Who out. Be it kind of black arabic coffee in. Who said lack coffee. You know people say you know. It's the turkish method. We could have a whole other conversation about what that means. But basically it's a coffee that has made unfiltered with finely ground coffee beans. I mean if ground selfies glenk cocoa powder and then they're boiled in a special pot and then some people put sugar and cardamom and all that stuff. But no i do. It said that. I do it black and it tastes good. It's powerful and it keeps me awake now normally. I'm much more boring with my coffee. So i don't wanna make you feel intimidated by my coffee preferences. The way i do with my basketball preferences taping is a sixers fan of you being nets fan. But i will ask you. What of coffee user. Well these days you know. Mostly just. I'm actually i kind of ended spectrum because i'm drinking. I'm drinking usually a blog roast. It's got a little bit of sleet near ended a little bit lighter in it. So it's almost on the but i will say whenever i go over to palestine and israel and to the region. I always drink the copy answered. Yes there's all the way to have it so i i need to. I need to get one of those little machines. So i can have that here too. I actually bought one in jerusalem and it was taken from the airport Years ago. So i wanna get another one mailed to me from somewhere in the middle east and i make sure you get one. That'd be awesome and the great thing about coffee by the way in the middle east and especially among the palestinians is even if you say you don't want coffee today if you spend time with anybody. You're going to drink some coffee. You go to someone's house. You're drinking coffee noon. You're drinking coffee. Come just have a cup of tea. The best you might get outta them. Is it the electric drink. Some tea as an alternative. You ain't going in the white house or having any kind of real meaning without coffee and probably eating eating eating something to so one of the great things about this. That was the mistake. I made the first time i ever went over there and i was over at a palestinian home. Well it wasn't a home. It was actually an outside just outside jerusalem and it was in a garbage dump and they were living and and abandoned Train car and they come out with food and give me fluently giving me food and it was actually at that time i was just no i mean they. They had nothing you know. My immediate inclination was right to say. No no no you keep this for yourself by. They were insistent. No no no you. Are you drinking this d. You are taking this food and my host. Who was with me. Who was bringing me around at that time. This is going back. Years is bringing me around at that time. He just said yeah. You're you're gonna take it. They're not gonna let you go without without eating and drinking so i had a very similar experience. I was in amer which is a for those who knows is kind of. It's not far outside of jerusalem and its reading between to kind of jerusalem in in these settlements and this is again. This is a big win like a village. It's set for demolition at the time. They made a school like tires in mud. People are worried about losing everything. And i'm talking to them about what's going on and at about fifteen minutes into just painful story about loss and being poor and trying to find money. They come out with the coffee pot and coffee. Particularly in palestinian society in many ways is one of those is one of those mechanisms for creating community for joint love of offering care and it makes people feel good to be able to offer that it's part of what it means in community so i'm glad we could talk about that is actually the most. We've talked about coffee coffee which is kind of fun. We have episode on that but talk to me about this book. People are asking. Why write a book on palestine except for palestine the limits of progressive politics. I guess the first thing. I should get you to talk about because i'll let you talk more than me. Today is why this book. Why why did we do this. Mitchell so just to give your listeners a little back on that you and i met actually over there for the first time when the foundation released piece where i was working at the time a trip for some journalists. And you're one of them and we went over there and you know we just started talking and it was a couple years later that we started talking about doing this book and as i recall it was actually a question. We were sure where what we were going to write about. We went through a whole process. Thinking about it at i. I can certainly say for me. And i feel like we came to this together that we came to this place where you know what's really important right now for us as americans to say to other american we we. I feel like what we're doing here is we're talking to our people like riley and so that's not that's americans progressives and saying the we can get together on a whole lot of issues and somehow we're not getting together nearly enough i mean there's we know of course we have our own little palestine sound already community or the peace community whatever the various different sort of shades are but you know on the whole like sort of liberal america progressive. America is not together on this issue. In fact we it sharply divided. And i know it seems to me and i'm pretty sure seems to to that. Vision is based on people who are willing to really dig deep into their own principles and decide that they can put this aside for palestine because of this reason to that sometimes it's compelling reasons know it can be the history of of jewish suffering it can be or it can be less compelling reasons if less valid reasons sort of just a sense of islamaphobia or just sort of fear of arab people brown people it can be good or bad reasons but liberal progressive. People should not have any reason to put their principles decided on this issue. I think that was to me. That was what this book was meant to speak to say. Look there's room for differences of opinion on a lot of things but principally we should all be able to agree. That palestinian should have rights the same rights as israelis and everyone else and it doesn't seem like we do agree on that. So i i think for us who are both you know. Not palestinian not israeli. Both american i think for me that was the most important thing we could try and really break open for folks and i think this book and certainly from the response. We've been getting so far. Seemed like we're doing

The Mind Financing The Future

"When powerful people use their advantage to engage in new involuntary transfers of wealth safety or freedom from those too weak to defend themselves. The winners are almost always forced to create an idealism as a cover for their siphoning in simpler terms. These idealisms are actually cover stories or bespoke fig leaves which almost exactly fit. The extraction are taking that they are tailored mask once. This is understood. We realized that to test this theory. Each wave of idealism would have to be matched to a highly specific effective confession for an injustice that pervaded the era in which it was found. This concept of idealism as disguising theft is of course an upsetting cognitive shift get is therefore naturally initially difficult to come to see the waves of idealism that characterized each era that we have lived through not as the best of our aspirations for a better world but rather as the photographic negative of the greed of our own ruling classes for example. The idealism of United States competitiveness was everywhere in the nineteen eighties and early to mid Nineteen Ninety S. At that time it seemed to be about the need for all Americans to pull together and get back into fighting shape as a country looking below the surface however it was not really about the need of managers owners and workers to pull together through shared austerity to reinvigorate American industry. Rather it was a false idealism. That instructed organized American Labor to give up hard won gains that were then not matched by comparable sacrifices from the other groups. Once the United States Labor had been sufficiently humbled in attenuated in its power by the Mid Nineteen Ninety S. The drumbeat of patriotic competitiveness gave way to the post National Davos idealism of a world without borders singing the praises of Financial Inclusion Trade Immigration and philanthropy with the Maudlin sediments of nine hundred eighty five. We are the world as its anthem. The purpose of the Post National Movement was not to include those overseas but instead to allow the wealthy of the industrialized world to break the bonds with their fellow citizens of the working class and to access cheaper labor. Pools abroad using far-flung supply chance likewise the idealism of so-called constructive engagement with governments like communist China's would be seen through this lens as the rationalization for ignoring issues of human rights and strategic risk in such a way as to benefit economically in the short-term selling out American interests in the long-term meanwhile back home in the states the techno Utopian perspective that arose dominate. The Bay area of California held. That information just wants to be free and that now. Transparency is king because privacy is dead perversely as you would expect in this theory. This hippie dippy sounding digital vision is exactly what ushered in the surveillance economy as the platforms became not windows but half silvered mirror through which the social media barons learned every intimate detail about their users. These startups turn techno behemoths. Turned the most intimate personal details of our private lives into their proprietary business. Data which was as far from free or transparent as one could possibly imagine the idealism of gender and identity to fits the exact pattern second wave feminism seemed to be about recognizing the intrinsic worth of women in the workforce but it may also be seen as an employer dream to push out the labor supply curve in such a way as to make the previous single breadwinner household require a second income just to keep pace the politics of identity which caught fire in the wake of the twenty ten. Colorado Senate upset are explained largely by economists. Pm Alana's theory. That identity is the cheapest substitute for the Labor Voting Block which demanded far more significant economic concessions. More bizarrely the strange media ritual of pointing the finger of Islamaphobia at anyone who dares ask about a mass murderer in which the killer triumphantly shouts of the hawk. Bar Emits. Bloody and sadistic mayhem may well be about protecting transfer. Payments from oil-rich monarchies while the official admonition to see the Niqab hit job burqa and clitoridectomy predominantly ethnic differences or symbols of female. Liberation is so absurd to go along way towards establishing the need for some theory. Is this to fill the space. The left-leaning idealism of making housing affordable for all that too many bad loans inflated the housing bubble while the right-leaning Ayn Rand Ian Idealism of self regulating markets practiced by Alan Greenspan allowed the banks to privatize gains while socializing the risks losses. The giving pledge to May well be an attempt to keep governments from clawing back unpaid taxes from carefully sheltered fortunes or establishing wealth and asset taxes in a period of radical inequality. In this sense it can be seen as something of a bargain if I promise to screw over my own children for charity. I hope that you will leave me alone and unquestioned to enjoy my vast and carefully sheltered wealth while I'm alive and as we have just seen with the Biden endorsements from Speaker Nancy Pelosi Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and former Senator Hillary Clinton. The metoo movement appears to be less about sexual assault and more about adding a tool for extra-judicial vigilantism which can be wielded selectively or kept sheath according to taste suffice it to say that. Hashtag believe all women has now given way to hash tag believe convenient women so you may ask. Why bring this up now? Well in my opinion what we need now is someone who is not part of any of the official idealisms. Of course that would have sounded quite weird in isolation if I had simply said that we need an anti Utopian to lead us. Wouldn't we want someone envision a dreamer doer hybrid two point the way? No we want someone who is not signed on for any of these horrible anti patriotic charades from either party. Someone who never believed in free trade free markets nationalism housing for all deregulation competitiveness etcetera etcetera. We need someone who is not closed with Jeffrey Epstein who does not possess significant financial relationships abroad. Additionally someone alienated by both the hardline pro-life pro-choice perspectives. Would be perfect for where most Americans are today since the time of Nixon. We've been in an era of predatory idealism with our best impulses used against us from both right and left. It is now time to get back to the hard work of cleaning up from two disastrous generations of failed business people politicians reporters in professors and perhaps most importantly we need to flush our dependence on near totalitarian communist China out of our system before it is too late

Glory Ali: Why Muslim Travel Rocks

"Runs Muslim slim travel rocks. which is the name we stole the title of this episode Thanks Glory? It's the thought that among other things. She's Muslim family friendly destinations with Muslim friendly services. Mrs And accommodation flurry says you don't have to compromise your faith when you're exploring the world so let's find out wanting spider to launch the site so Muslim Tara walks walks is a blog that I created to encourage and motivate Muslims to travel the world. And you know some people. Ask Me why. Muslims need to be encouraged or inspired to travel the world world. And what I will say to them was Muslims. We have specific faith. Bates needs that. Need to be met so that we can travel and still follow our faith and at the same time it can be challenging when it comes to traveling so I created this website in this space where Muslims can get information of where they can go a eddie destinations. They want to go to where they pray where they can have a good Hallam meal and just enjoy Muslim friendly activities at any destination. You know it's hostile hostile to show up on a non Muslim destination and be greeted with Muslim friendly services than accommodations throughout the world. Is that increasing. Do you think. Glory absolutely one hundred percents I don't even example. So mustn't travelers people ask. Walt what's a difficult genus travels in wasn't travels for the same reason as any any other tourists more than fifty percent of them listen. Travelers travel with their families. They stay longer and spend more and there's also a rise of the solo female traveller which is becoming very popular Muslim. Women have a strong influence when planning a trip a Muslim travelers are one of the largest visited visited markets to the United States but few brands market to them And just to give you idea of how big this travel sectors in two thousand sixteen was is estimated. There was a hundred and twenty. One million mustn't travelers that spend one hundred and forty five billion dollars. It's expected to grow to a hundred and fifty six million travelers spending two hundred and twenty billion dollars. So there's a real confidence in that sector absolutely and it's growing in a lot of anonymous destinations are starting to markets and most travelers for those reasons that I stated before were a lot of the families. These are Muslims family child within families but are not dumping this question on you because I sent it to you willing to consider but I was recently contacted by an Indonesian woman. Who wanted to travel but there was now president within her family? She scared she didn't wait. A stops a center linked to your your cy obviously and she wants to be an inspiration to her children so that they can go off say the world and she wants to do it on her own. As Sir you said Solar women trouble and Solo Muslim famous chapel is on the rise. So what. What advice would you offer her? Well you know. This can be a little controversy the in Assam and I know some friends that I have will not travel without a husband or brother because his Lamad said that you should not travel without a male Guardian Ardian however that was back in the time of Jesus in the prophets and of course you know. The women didn't work and Sunday. The menu is the main supporter of the households of anything happens what you know who would support them But now that's all change and it's pretty safe now to to travel anywhere that you want to go but it's also with in the family so it's up to each individual you know. Luckily for me you know I told my husband. Hey I'm going traveling Over here he's a guy right just as long as I can contact you were good. There's no issues But I also do have younger friends in their twenties who want to travel and their parents give them a hard time because an Islamic woman's aren't supposed to travel by themselves and they're like mom but you know it's a new era and you time we can travel were safe so sometimes they'll come to me and ask me for advice and usually my advice to them. Is You know let your parents know. Tell them this is what I'm going to. You have a plan ahead of time. Make them feel comfortable. I'm going to be at this hotel. Aren't going to be at this fronts house I'm GonNa call you in such and such time And just make them feel comfortable in the more comfortable they feel and see that you are responsible young woman than the last their hesitate so there are lots of challenges. You've got convince your family. You've got to be true to your face. So what are some of the misconceptions both on the part of Muslims in on the pot of non Muslims in the in the travel industry industry. Yeah so so. One of the things we're talking about with women cannot travel alone which is not true. A lot of women travel alone. I travel alone. I'm married but I do a lot of Solo traveling And it's like I was as just to each individual person. So if you want to travel if you're willing to travel with your children I think it's a wonderful idea because I did the same with I children. I made sure that my kids went on. BE -cations every year even if it was a road trip and one of the major reasons. Why did that is because to me? Traveling allows the children to learn much more than skin potentially offer them and traveling abroad particularly helps improve positive character developments and the individual the identity as a towns are able to immerse themselves in other cultures unlike their familiar surroundings so for the one of your audience members and in much before that wants to inspire children. I would say my tips to her is no travel with the kids. Offer that opportunity for them to experience appearance different cultures and societies foods. Maybe they can pick up a different language Also I would set them up with play dates for children from different for backgrounds on. That's a good start even fair just at home set up the play dates with different from different backgrounds. So them when you're able to travel to any even even if you travel within the United States the United States is huge and even she go to stay. It's a it's a different culture. Even our languages is a little bit different. The view is different. You can go to the data we can go to the beach. We can go to the mountains. It's very diverse. Be here so I would always say that you want to like set our plates interact with other children from different cultures. You give your children books that they read regarding The Code Cultural Books Right. I would also try different foods. I used to do that with my kids. I take them out to eat different foods. And 'cause I realized early on with my children that every time we went out wanted chicken nuggets in French fries and I was like. You've got to be kidding me. I'm not taking you to this restaurant and you're going to have chicken nuggets and French fries like just is. Try this the like mom ill. That's green I don't WANNA try. I'm like no no no tell me you don't like it after you tasted it so that todd they started taste in different foods at now. You know they love diff- Larry's a film which is great so we know we all want our children to grow up in a world free from bias in discriminations and we want them to reach the dreams and feel that whatever they want to accomplish in life is hospital so we want them to feel loved and included a never experienced the pain rejection exclusion. But the reality is that we do live in the world in which racism and other forms of vice continues to affect us so discrimination Hertzen. We scars that can last a lifetime affecting goals ambitions like choices and feeling of softwares. So how can we best prepare our children to meet their. The challenges of reap the benefits an increasingly diverse world. Raise these children to celebrate the values diversity and to be proud of their culture so as the the Muslim travel sector grows. And you're very excited about that. I you noticing that there is less kind of attitude toward Muslims as individuals. Yes there is an auto you one thing. When when I first started travel bloggers started during the presidential election here in the United States I don't know if you know about my my background stories. When I started the travel blog I actually wanted to do something because I realized that this whole election was trying to separate raid R. Our nation And so I started the truck walks at all what it can do. WanNa walk but I want combat Islamaphobia at the same time. So so what I realized After the presidential election as the Muslim travel band was that you know instead of our country being divided. It's what you hear on the news all the time we actually came together. I mean I have never been more proud to be an American as a day that we had our Muslim travel bans. Went into a fact doc. Because everyone didn't matter what race so many people came out to the Air Force to support the Muslims that were in the air that we're going to be sent back to another country that wasn't bears and so one of the challenges that I faced myself is when I recently just came from Puerto Rico spent a week and a half Hyphen Puerto Rico But I have to be very cautious so when I travel I always have my passport after I have my birth certificate. Not many people travel with the birthday ticket but I have to travel with Nyberg certificate to prove that I'm American citizen because I don't know if I leave the country if I'm going to be allowed to come back in that possible. It should be. It should be but it's but it's not because during the travel ban. Trump was saying that you want any Muslim to go back to their country and I kept saying I am. I am an American. I was born just because I wear a headscarf doesn't mean that contrary I am an American and so the only way that I feel that I can prove something is if I have my birth certificate with me because my passport in this time doesn't really mean

UN confronts anti-Semitism as a human rights problem with historic report

"Shaheed is the United Nations special rapid tour on freedom of religion in or belief last month he released a historic report to the UN General Assembly the first UN report of its kind to be wholly dedicated to Anti Semitism Doctor Shaheed is a consummate diplomat of former foreign minister of the Maldives and a lifelong human rights crusader he joins us now in studio to discuss his momentous report often thanks so much for taking the time to sit down with us before presenting a AJC's Jacob Blaustein Institute for Human Rights Later Today SA- pleasure to be here thank you let me now this is the first ever UN human rights report dedicated solely to Anti Semitism if I understand correctly you were appointed Special Rapporteur on free religion or belief and then you got to pick your topic so why did you pick antisemitism well you know when I began my work on this mandate three years ago I observed how disengaged engaged the UN was with the topic of Antisemitism we hadn't actually served energy at all and sometime I was observing oh how violent way attacks on the Jewish it's disproportionately high in terms of numbers and in the time I noticed this scene of huge optic in antisemitic incidents head crimes really is long overdue report just before we go any further we should probably help people understand a little what about what's in the report so can you share with us two or three of the of the top level findings of of your of your work well the first thing of course for me to dance right that that my mandate on freedom of belief should address this subject and I make a case for that than I look at the of my work because important to know how the report now look at the different forms in which antisemitism manifest itself in the past and today because it's evolving and changing phenomenon and then I looked chart trends what in terms of the incidents and the violent incidents as well that I look at the online dimension which is quite significant forum as as so to speak in terms of how manifested that look at St responses there's good practice that also bad practices then finally of course I make recommendations ends of the report is focused on the important to define antisemitism as a way to understand what the phenomenon is there for the the definition by the Hell costumers alliance is given a full coverage in the report along with concerns I'm have risen about it but I offer clear guidelines on how and burn it might be used to document and to raise awareness it Anti Semitism my other recommendations of course include are calling upon states to ensure they have proper laws in place to to address antisemitism to support victims if such a crimes and to use education as a very important tool to address this phenomenon and of course for the UN to play in a high they will and boy justice issue at at a global level you mentioned the International Holocaust remembrance alliances working definition of antisemitism this is a first from the UN ED recommend by your report for all states to adopt that definition what are the merits of that particular definition which AJC is proud to have helped author well what is important is that we should know what we're talking about what this definition does is give us titans on winter sport enter Semitism is not comprehensive because some aspects that the tunnel covered bite but nice talking point and also gives examples of when it might be anti Semitic so what I'm saying is the purpose of this definition was to monitor and to some indicate crimes and incidents and then it's a very good tool to raise awareness about when this happens but it's also going to be used as a non nego what I'm saying is if you use as a non legal educational rule to monitor document and respond krantz is a very useful tool and therefore states must ensure they use this for this in this in this fashion to make sure that they're prepared to understand and a splinter antisemitic hate crimes right as as an American organization J. C. where concerned at times when the report is used for kind of enforcement action ends because hate speeches is problematic but it's also problematic from the American perspective to cut down on on someone's freedom of expression so the working definition can sometimes CBS toe the line on some of those issues is that what you meant about the non legal educational perspective indeed I think which understand that expression is vital even to deal with antisemitism so whenever someone tries to censor speech one it's very careful that the lines are drawn not standards and that's time that is inciting violence discrimination and hostage against the else where that line is not crossed then of course we should use other means you must have caused denounced antisemitism and all that forms of recall I call on government leaders to respond to US such incidents by denouncing them but they want to criminalize speech than they should have very high threshold which follows international standards are on ensuring that they're on the criminal his speech that is inciting violence and discrimination against indio communities Jewish leaders have spoken to my mind convincingly about the what a in which Israel is kind of scene today as the Jew among the nation's right that a lot of the kind of mutating shifting anti Semitic perspectives that were anti Semitic Canard's tropes et cetera that were projected onto Jews in the nineteenth and first half of the twentieth century is are now projected onto Israel so Israel has become kind of a prime target for underlying anti Semitism cloaked in this kind of thin veil of political discourse that's something that the working definition helps to tackle I suspect I know your answer to this question but I'll ask that molest can criticism of Israel Anti Semitism well I think one has care for the new the definition by the customer so that alliance there said that example list which includes demonizing Israel can be antisemitic but tomato context assessment because context husband and they're very clear criticizing Israel like you would any other democratic state does not concern Semitism so there is enough scope in the definition to ensure that that both the use of Israel critism two separate entity trump's is defined as well as ensuring that these limits to criticize his actions as a government actor Ofman your report documents rising anti Semitic violence and hate speech around the world and identifies it as a threat to Jews but not only a threat to Jews is quote unquote toxic to democratic societies we talk a lot here at AJC about what we see as the three primary sources of antisemitism the far right the her laughed and certain radical segments of the Muslim community does that blueprint fit your findings yes I do point out that antisemitism comes in a variety of forms and almost all across the spectrum of politics society to the jets and other groups in society and and I give examples of how these two different perspectives are presented and What I of what I'm offering is a human rights based approach to this subject because such wide phenomenon and I point out that antisemitism is essentially about Jews it it is as a manifestation of dysfunctioning facilities it's about almost everybody else how the becomes in a four big have become intolerant how how how we are big attorney Harvey Racist so it's up it's a global phenomenon it causes everybody and you're right to point talk as a note that the into music sentiment and discordant messages coming from the far left there is a far right into the crimes pop up Edward quite frequently and also radical Muslims to do this and of course beyond this hate crimes are as widespread antisemitic prejudice across all societies and I note that in Muslim societies in some examples the days widespread prejudice amongst call those among students I know textbook switch convey antisemitic content as I do you got some political parties which period as champions of the left often when national altea national bodies like the UN talk about antisemitism they pair it with Islamaphobia Or with other forms of discrimination right you just talked about some hard left folks who define themselves constitutionally as anti-racism yet as we've seen with some of those examples some of those people who think of themselves as anti-racism Crusade others are in fact themselves occasionally perpetuating antisemitism so the result is that these bodies that will talk about antisemitism and Islam phobia or antisemitism and racism they very rarely have the opportunity to speak specifically about Antisemitism and in the meantime I'm as you note hatred of Jews and violent attacks on Jews have kept going up so why is it important to tackle anti Semitism as its own problem and not only as anti Semitism and first of all I think we should look intolerance in all its forms because they really a single phenomenon but antisemitism as you just said you know Z. oldest hatred and is often the canary in the coal mine of Autumn's of hatred has in the past see into that how how does it came communities I think the important thing is to look at something as widespread as antisemitism as something that's enough concerned too many communities of time as a good starting point to address offers hatred but beyond that every hatred requires a specified focus on its specificities we need to look at everything in a broad general framework but each each form of hatred requires a focus on its specificity so antisemitism given given it's it's it's you know Bite spread occurrence is almost endemic everywhere requires an urgent attention also because we have neglected and like I said I'm very concerned deeply concerned about the very violent forms in which these manifested often in societies which have very strongly role of traditions become into a week from the Pittsburgh one ear of week from Pittsburgh attack and six months later we had the poet attack in the phone and then just last week in Holland and Germany and throughout you find very violent forms off attacks on Jewish communities I think we have to focus on this subject and get to the bottom of it and find recipes and I would argue that if we can address antisemitism effectively than behind the tool to other forms of hatred as well You know I think we here at AJC certainly agree with that you know it's it's very important to us to fight all types of hatred and bigotry and at the same time we know that there is a time when it's entirely appropriate to speak about just antisemitism or just anti black racism I Islam phobia without kind of dragging other things into it as you mentioned ofmeat before we close I have to ask one question about the UN because a lot of our listeners American Jews in general are deeply skeptical of the United Nations now I know the UN does a lot consists of a lot there are a lot of different arms and bodies in committees and figures and special tours like yourself that fall under the UN umbrella but this is an organization that Jews are deeply suspicious of why the Jews today beat glad to see this report your report on antisemitism coming from an organization that they are so suspicious of well I'm not saying that we Ford is out I think he's a good starting point my attempt is to start working on this subject to let the UN also start focusing on this I call for a joined-up approach by different Duran bodies on this subject that many working on this UNESCO U. N. scientific educational body has just late last year a policy guide organization in dealing with any in schools the following up with another look this year on pedagogical aspects of pending antisemitism classrooms today you in bodies being on this I think it's important that the global reach of the UN is used to address this issue I think we should find ways to work together to address this issue I was going back to earlier point while I agree with you that we should all focus on specific elements of each type of a hatred what should avoid is what I call victim competition off that happening as well and I'm not saying it's happening here but we can all work together to address all forms of intolerance and if we are doing well on one we would necessarily between invasion others as well I certainly agree with you there I think our philosophy at AJC has long been that you know specifically in America but really around the world as well our patchwork of communities and societies can work to uplift one another rather than focusing on on who's been holding each other down op and thank you so much for taking the time to ns for your diligent work on this report for all the great work that I know is yet to come thank you it's been a pleasure to be on Avocado thank you

"Did not have much better memories than me. Christian Easter worshippers comes from the Sri Lanka terrorist attack that happened on Easter morning. So this is Hillary Clinton sent out this tweet on this. Holy weekend for many faiths. We must stand United against hatred and violence. I'm praying for everyone affected by today's horrific attack on Easter worshippers and travelers in Sri Lanka three hundred Christians were killed. Three hundred. And she calls them Easter worshippers, and then Bronco Bama, sent on a very similar tweet with word Easter worshiper this from the article I just pulled up. Here's what's critical neither of those to use the word Christians, and in order to avoid doing so they went, so far as to make up a new term Easter worshippers heretofore unknown to any Christian. That's so good. Now, just for comparison sake after the New Zealand attack their sack on the on the mosque Hillary Clinton, said my heart breaks for New Zealand and the global Muslim community. We must fight we must continue to fight the perpetuation and normalization of Islamaphobia racism in all of its forms, white supremacy bub-bubba. So this is the global the global Muslim community talks about Islamaphobia whole thing. More Christians are killed in his attack and that word never used but replaced with Easter worshipers. That's great. Eric. I want to come back and talk about Trump. I wanna make sure we get plenty of time to play the fullness of this clip, because it's just it's a flurry of gut punches flurry of them. It's a flurry of jabs. I should say, no knockout punch. Oh, we've got plenty of time for that Eric. No need for the knockout, soften them up a little couple of jabs here and there. But before that I think it's worth noting. Today's the anniversary of the one year anniversary. Say. Sad day. Somber occasion. I'm surprised we made it a year to be honest. Today is the one year anniversary of. When the internet died. Remember, Eric when the internet died? I remember. Well, I remember when we used to be able to send emails back and forth to each other. Go on go base, book and sure download things and the shopping, sure they the Amazon and all that, that was a year ago. It's been one year since we've been able to do all those things together. I don't know how we've always survived one year ago today when net neutrality was ended, and of course, the end of the internet as we know it. And it's been tough for all of us stuff for, you know. Tough your family, but. Keep going. I think we can make it. I don't know how to know where but. Trump, Trump ruined the internet. Trump killed it killed the internet by getting rid of net neutrality. So. Been so hard. Do you remember the dire predictions? Do you remember this remember the mass outrage Bernie Sanders in so many other saying this is the end of the internet as we know it?.

Nope, not this extreme radical party. That is not interested in governing this country. That is only interested in destroying a duly elected president who's made more progress in two and a half years than their president on the democratic side made in eight undoing the total colossal failure and mess of Obama.

"And I remember my default thinking was that's going to be a political problem. Right. Or all the times it someone accused him of being a secret Muslim born in Kenya. The the we said, no, he's not. But you know, maybe the next response should have been. But fuck you. What's the problem if you worry Muslim, right? She said that to be Colin Powell famously said dumb meet the president. If you remember, right. So I guess what course corrections need to be made by well, meaning people to fight this stuff. It's a very good question. I think I think number one. Like with any other kind of bias implicit bias? You have to recognize it. Right. You have to own up to the fat that we all have biases about other groups, and in particular majorities have biases about minorities. And when we talk about quote, unquote, white privilege, by the way, that's not a criticism of white people. That's about institutional systemic problems that applies to Muslims in particular ad in very hard for Muslims. Who don't, you know, people talk about the way that African Americans have been able to overcome history of race in the US and fight against it and Jewish communities difference when Muslims, of course, is unlike African Americans and Christian which African rings had in common with the majority and unlike Jewish folks, then white which out Jewish cousins have in common with the majority. So we're in a kind of double bind as we tend to be majority non white community. And we also have a very different religion, which people don't know very much about. So even amongst liberals attends to be out of ignorance attends to be kind of myths and tropes that a spread about. And even the language. The example, I always use an eye to the inset pieces. Some Democrats don't like it. But I have to make the point Bill Clinton at the 2016 democratic national convention gave a speech in which he said, and I quote, if you're a Muslim, and you love America and freedom, and you hate Tara stay here and help us win and make a future together. Now for people in unions. They clapped that's great. That's Bill Clinton stand up against Trump's Islamaphobia a little Muslims heard very different way. They heard it as a white politician. Former president telling us Americans many of whom are born in this country, especially African American Muslims who go back centuries to slavery being told that their citizenship that place in this country is conditional on quote, unquote, fighting terrorism if you're a Muslim if you love America this idea, and that Clinton I don't think he had even intention, but unwittingly paps he's spreading this trope of the Muslim of the Muslim foreign ah. The Muslim is not quite American unless he's even Hillary at the time when she was standing up again. Trump's islamophobic kept saying we need to what with Muslim Americans to beat terrorism. Well, sorry muslim-american a mole than just props or instruments in the war on terror, and that's the kind of kind of unconscious biases, maybe unwitting tropes that spread even by Democrats who trying to do, you know, who in the heads of saying what I'm fighting against anti Muslim bigotry. Yeah. There's a there's a an obligation foisted upon Muslim Americans to fight terrorism that is not upon the rest of the population and Muslim Americans as seen through a national security prison rather than in any other community that has the same issues the same struggles with access to healthcare the same desire to have that kids. Go to a great public school the same challenges of stagnant wages, we see Muslim Americans through the national security foreign policy prison in the UK..

"Primitive monkeys. Those are all easy targets tell me, but we need to have a much more difficult conversation about quote, unquote, the mainstream media, the liberal media and democratic politicians who have wittingly and unwittingly fed into this Islamaphobia that we're seeing across the western weld who have you know, pushed some troops about Muslims again. Wittingly and unwittingly who've talked sometimes quite openly about how you know. Bill moss has about Muslims on his show being violent and bringing in a desert culture. It's really worrying that it so across the board in so prevalent in old Puckett's of political. Yeah. So how do you feel about the way? The Christ Church attacks have been covered by the US media. So far. A good question. I'm in the US meters. It was difficult to the media because as the newspapers which cover everything more responsibly than this cable news, which tends to cover things a little bit more irresponsibly. I mean, I've ended up doing a bunch of hits on CNN and MSNBC over the last few days. And I have to say I was kind of impressed for the first time that we were having discussions about white, nationalism and Islam phobic. I think that's partly to do it Trump because Trump has kind of so polarizing character that journalists much more willing to talk about some of these issues is it's the silver lining of Trump. He so bad. He's full of people who were on the fence to get off the fence and take a position on things like racism and black lives, matter and Islam phobia and deportations when they didn't pops when you'll feel bus was in office that was it was about Honda to. Critique some of these things may because the Democrats were in power a lot of liberals unwilling to talk about some of these uncomfortable issues. I think Trump being in power is made his Lama phobia. So brazen that you know, back in the day told I've I've been writing about. About, you know, white far right terrorism for years when I was in the UK, I wrote about it for the intercept a couple years ago in two thousand seventeen and people said, you know, what they said said, oh, you just a Muslim who wants to distract attention from Jihadist terrorism. Now, they don't say that because the numbers don't lie, and we're seeing this in front of face that share the Sheehan number of attacks the share hatred that we're seeing online and in front of us. And I think they're full, you know, Don lemon. Did I went on Don lemon show and CNN on Friday night, and he's devoted to ours to talking about white nationalism in-depth, which groups are on the rise. Whereas this coming from I went on Joyon reach show on Sunday, and we had a thirteen minute comedy, which Tommy as you know, in cable news, will that's an eternity turn about Islam the way that media covers Muslim. So there are some bright spots. But you know, there's always there's always, you know, there's always in my country Britain if you saw the Daily Mirror cover which heavily attacked the newspaper where they had angelic baby. Boy who grew up to be a follower. Never have that headline for. Killa? Would you know, you never would? Well, so okay, I'd like to talk about some of the more virulent nasty people in a minute. But I want to try to do a little self criticism of maybe the ways, you know, Islam phobic language gets laundered through our politics. Like, for example. I remember Barack Obama did an interview with I think Nick Kristof in two thousand six staffed it he talked about how the growing up in Indonesia, the call to prayer was one of the most beautiful things you could ever hear..

But you know, what I can we stop with equivocation just for a moment here because in my opinion, antisemitism is unique it is incredibly unique in our lifetimes and in our parents lifetime because anti semitism. Unlike any of those other 'isms that you wanna point to which are all bad. Yes. They are all bad. But, but we are all in a position to recognize that antisemitism caused one of if not the greatest horror of the last hundred years.

Let's let's be friendlier. Let's try to be kinder to each other. I mean, you'll the malcontents are always gonna lose their shit and say, why would I be kind to Belleville winder reason to to borrow whatever and jump into that?

And I'm like well because I'm a human being part of the human condition at it matters. But you know, Islam just seems to continue to be this sensitive nerve. And if you bring it up in any critical sense, you are the ad hominem just kick in immediately. And that's going to be a tough hurdle to get over. Yeah. Yeah. I think I think we need as we're talking. I was thinking with a ad hominem was in the temperature that can especially online get to wear debts. We just need to cut each other a break, you know, like this thing kind of hard. Wipe is hard life is complicated. And we need to cut each other break. Start in good faith that we're all trying our best in really try to understand the other. It's not always true. Unfortunately, some people just don't want to have a conversation that if we start with just giving each other the benefit of the doubt that life is hard life is complicated.

I did have a bar mitzvah group in the Jewish culture, which we can talk about. But I never really felt a strong pressure to conform to any least ideological views. I was able to explore was lucky enough to have a little money with my family that I did some traveling that was crucial to my life. All of these things if you. To call that privilege be my guest. And and and I just don't want that to be a slime label. Okay. So if I was able to enjoy the privilege of an intellectual experts that started when I was young in an education that was pretty decent.
