The 7 Remote Work Trends That Will Impact Your Business
"Welcome to another episode, of marketing, school I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil. Patel and today. We're GONNA. Talk about the seven remote work trends that will impact your business, so we're still in the thick of it five twenty eight. This is may twenty eighth twenty twenty, so there's there's been a lot of chatter about remote work, and we believe it's going to continue right like so eric and. And I? Believe with them opening up more more stuff were already seeing a trend of covid spreading more in resurging backup. Sadly so Moyo working is a huge trend yard seen companies like twitter. Saying you don't have to come back to work if you don't want to. Yeah, so I guess that's that's really the the first one right there. It's I think there's GonNa be a lot more. People can't twitter. People look at facebook's people saying like Oh. They're saying you don't need a comeback for the rest of the year. Whereas companies like Microsoft are kind of waiting and seeing what develops I think what's going to happen is some people are still going to have a semblance of an office because I was looking at a twitter poll the other day I I think actually heating, put it up. He jaw and couple of thousand people responded to it. Maybe it was somebody else, but it was basically saying. Saying look how many of you are would like to come back into office. How many would like to go purely remote? And how many of you want a hybrid? The vast majority of people picked that they wanted to go. Hybrid and I think hybrid is the motto of the future sure he can socially distance, and all that but I think coming to the office, maybe two or three days a week under the other days are remote i. think that's what's going to work and before turnover to uni all. The Israeli government or Israeli scientists came up with a smart model saying hey, why don't you try a four ten model meaning you come into the office four days a week virus six fourteen days to incubate so four days. You come into office the other ten days. You don't come back and then boom. You're back again like next next. Monday so I. I see that potentially being an option as well. That's. The other big trend that I see is people are moving towards different communication channels like. I know in our office. We used to have so many meetings. The amount of time people spend on meetings at one point was just so ridiculous. Start enforcing policies on how many people could be in meetings because we don't want people wasting time in meetings versus actually getting work done and when you look at this is what we found. Is that people using zoom more slack? Mormeck soft teams more, they're actually getting more efficient and people are learning how to get work done from their home. Same Time we've also found that some people aren't good at working remotely. Some people are amazing at it. Others aren't so with your business. You're going to have to figure out how to adapt and how to help people transition and teach them how to work remotely 'cause not everyone's used to. Yup and then this is number three. Number three cut into Neil's point. I would say. There is zoom fatigue or Google meet. Fatigue is very real right now so i. just mentioned like I think. The last time recorded this the week before maybe that week. I was camping out at twelve calls. They even know how it got to that point where Mike. Allen Rogers booked up, but at the very end of the day as just. It's straight up like depression and like I feel like it's Friday every time that happened so I. Actually see less zoom meetings happening so sometimes what I do now. Instead of doing zoom calls I say hey, let's just do a phone call, and then that way. You don't have to keep looking at the screen. The whole time goes. By the end of the day you're just you're the vegetable so I see I. See changes happening totally number four. Another big thing that you're going to have to start. Taking into account is hours. So what we're seeing is businesses normally would be open from eight to five or whatever the hours may be, we're seeing. People are starting to work more sporadic hours. They still may be getting the work done, but they may stay earlier. Finish later or start later and finish earlier and just be more efficient work less. Less hours in one day, but the next day they may end up working quite a bit more hours because they're also adapting to their family life with other people being in their homes, their kids or their kids having to do zoom school calls, so they had to be there for the kids and help them through that as well so I think one thing that your business has to learn how to adapt to. Is People not working eight hours consistent and working during random hours and time and as long as. As they get the work done, you shouldn't really complain much or have much base. You

Swearing-in of new Israeli government delayed by infighting
"As both prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu and then head of the opposition Ganz repeatedly failed to form a coalition. The political deadlock is over tonight. The pair will inaugurate a new unity. Government Mister Netanyahu will be prime minister for eighteen months before handing over to Mr. Gaunt's swearing in late by day after America's secretary of State Mike pompeo broke a travel hiatus to fly Jerusalem and meet with both leaders there. He discussed joint efforts to counter of influence in the region campaign that we have been part of To reduce the resources that the ayatollah has to inflict harm here and Israel and all across. The world has borne fruit. It has been successful. And we're GONNA stay added. There's still work to do what wasn't publicly addressed or Israel's plans for the West Bank mister. Netanyahu campaigned on promises to annex parts of the Occupied Territories. That's just one point of contention between his Likud Party and Mister Ganz's blue and white coalition as the long-awaited government gets down to work two political rivals who've been swearing in their campaigns not to trust each not to allow each other to be prime. Minister are now basically going to guarantee each other as prime minister over the next three or four years feffer. It's our Israel correspondent reporting from Jerusalem. Any guns in the parties supported him in arranging. This government will receive an equal number of ministers in cabinet ministers of Likud and the other parties which supported and it's supposed to have equal footing INC cabinet and both their prime minister and the ultimate primates and into the our against who will have those titles and swapped those titles eighteen months. Both of them have the power veto over the government's agenda so that's the basic framework of how this is supposed to work but obviously almost any kind of government decision policy could lead to a crisis one of the things that's lingered over this question for sixteen months. Is this corruption trial of Mister? Netanyahu faces how will that work under this unity government ten days from the swearing? Elvis new government now is scheduled to Face Jerusalem District Court in three charges of fraud one charge of bribery and now of course is denying all. These charges doesn't seem that he can evade his day in court and to make sure that the court system does hold to account the Justice Ministry has been handed to one of the many guns his allies. They're saying is going to ensure that the case goes ahead but we can expand to try and find various ways to erode and undermined the case against him. We're already seeing from various Internet proxies in the media very vicious campaign against the Attorney General. Who decided on the charges against him? And this will continue to be the undercurrent to the new government's first few months so assuming that this unity government can get past the corruption trial and get back to governing. How much faith do you have in them? Being able to stick together given how much mistrust there is between these guys. Well the distrust within this new government is endemic. And there's no question about it and gets into narrow. Spent sixteen months slagging each other off so suddenly beginning to work together. Maybe have a daunting prospect. But yes I remember. That guy has in the past. Been the commander of the Israeli army underneath also. He does have a history of working well together with the Asian. The new ministers in this government will be eager to get down to work and they really sick and tired of campaigning. For the last sixteen months is really politics has been in limbo so I think that despite the distrust of there is amongst them that they will get down to governing these over the next few Muslim tried to overcome whatever obstacles and dislikes they have for each other and another big question in Israel. Recently is the plan for annexation which seems to be going ahead of the coalition agreement between the could against his blue and white party does include the clothes that the issue of annexation as it appears in the peace plan proposed by Donald Trump back in January will be brought to cabinet and the parliament from the beginning of July. So that issue there and we know that gaunt's and some of his partners are not very enthusiastic about going ahead with annexing large parts of the occupied West Bank and that certainly is a potential minefield for this new government. But the real question is is now himself really eager? To Go ahead annexation. He's used this last year or so as an issue to rally his right wing base over the election. Campaigns is very risk averse leader. Despite his gung-ho image he doesn't really like to endanger the status quo so why go ahead and jeopardize that by pushing on annexation? I think we'll hear there ten hour continuing to promise on accession to his supporters but finding reasons to delay and then lot will depend on the outcome of the provincial November if Donald Trump news is the next administration is much less supportive of annexation than it. May Well Happen and is it that accession push the tacit approval of the trump administration. The reason why America's secretary of State's Mike Pompeo was in Israel yesterday his first trip abroad in nearly two months. So according to sources in Perez enter our that's not the reason he flew halfway around the world and his first international trips since the beginning of the pandemic according to compels remarks. What we've been hearing from people both on the Israeli and the American signs were in the meetings and main issue was actually Iran and the various concerns Israel and the United States have about escalations of tensions with Iran in the region and the other issue that compared brought up quite pointedly was China and America's concerns over China's lack of cooperation regarding cove nineteen and America's reservations with various projects. That Israel is cooperating with Chinese. Big Infrastructure Programs. Won't that they'd ministration. Wants Israel to freeze choices out of putting all that together. How likely do you think that this government will serve out its term as written so I think for the next year or so as the government staying together because nobody really wants to go back to election campaign mode again? This people have really exhausted. Elections at the same time is just beginning to emerge from corona virus shutdown. So I think for these at least twelve month period now the government will somehow stick together. The real question on this government's future rises towards the end of twenty twenty one when Netanyahu gates have to swap places and gates becomes. The prime minister would only be the ultimate prime minister. I think then we'll We'll see whether they can actually contemplate relinquishing power. But probably the next year year and a half Israeli politics will be relatively

Mark Regev: Israel's Modern Story
"Has been in post since April twenty sixteen prior to that he was the chief spokesman for the Prime Minister of Israel. A position he held for eight years. He joined Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Nineteen Ninety seven his deputy chief of mission of the Consulate General in Hong Kong and spokesman at the Israeli Embassy in Beijing. He also served a spokesman at the embassy in DC and he was the spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jerusalem from two thousand and four to two thousand and seven. He also said as a combat soldier in the whole brigade the idea originally from Melbourne Australia. Mock Fry bug as he wants back then moved to Israel as a twenty two year old no significant family or contacts his progress to embassador shows. How flat Israeli society is. This is one of a number of Israeli related episodes in the series of Johnny Goad Jewish. State scroll down to find biographer of Lord Balfour and the historian of the decades leading up to the formation of the state of Israel. Lord Leslie Turn Bug that's episode the Teen and life in Shin Bets with its former chief Yaacov Peri. That's episode ten so his ambassador again have and we started by unpacking that Australian background. Who is the way out of this world competition belief against me? It's not a competition and busted a regular. Thank you very much feel time and agreeing to the interview today. Here on Johnny Jewish state. I'm happy to be with you so now. Your background. Which is very interesting. I think to the Anglo Saxon. Speaking world of jewelry is that you're Australian correct. I was born in Melbourne Australia. In nineteen sixty and my father was born in Australia. He was a what they call in Australia. Postwar refugee he was a survivor dollar cost originally born in Germany. My Mother's family. She was born in Australia. They were Polish Jews who were lucky enough smart enough to get out of the nineteen twenties and they They arrived in Australia. I think even the last year of that decade and I remember my grandmother always saying that. Save the family. Had they stayed in Poland their fate would have been the fate of Polish Jews which was not good. And how did they Australia? Unity family story so I know on on both sides on my mother's side. My grandfather was on a train some going from Poland to Germany where he was studying engineering. Things were pretty GLIMP- for Jews in Poland in the nineteen twenties and he read an article in a magazine that Australia is the country of the future on the other on the German side of the family. I think after the Holocaust people say what is the furtherest place away from Europe Austria qualified. Freiburg was the family name Going back to the rations my head this thing at the age of twenty one I had. I said these people tried to kill us. Do I really want to German. Name for the rest of my life retrospectively. Now I know I made a mistake because I I very. He never said anything to me. But I offended my father very greatly but at the time at the age of twenty one twenty two when I did it. I was convinced that this was the right thing to do. I'm aware of how Ashkenazim took on the name of the town where they came from and of course a lot of the early. Zionists took their Ashkenazi names and totally he. Bray is did correct David. Ben-gurion is probably the prime example. I Prime Minister Shamir also Menachem Begin. Correct having said that though I suppose it was if it was part of me becoming an Israeli though. Part of what you said isn't correct. 'cause Freiburg the place in Germany is U. R. G. And my family was always. Rg so I'm not sure. It was connected to that physical location in Germany. Look when you head. Brewer is a name different ways of doing it so Freiberg is in English. It's free and Burgers mountain so I could have taken the Hebrew accrued of innocent played with that and I did and nothing successful came out but I was going out at the time with a woman who was studying literature at the Hebrew University. And she said you can also do it by playing with the letters so Freiberg in Hebrew is pay raise bait and you can play with the letters and rig of came out very nicely. Well I think it's It was an intriguing name when I first came across all those years ago. I'm glad to this question. Lazy Lane so now being an Anglo Saxon speaker is a real asset to Israel in the modern media world to explain Israel across borders to billions of people. Whose language is. It's their mother tongue or their second. Language is a huge asset. And something if I might say that has been quite a glaring omission from Israel's diplomatic mission in early years of the Jewish state so I think if you look at the people who held the position that I hold now we've had some English speakers of native born English speakers and And those Israelis who held the role of also had mother tongue English run persona had still has of course grading this. He is the son of a diplomat himself and as a result he went to school abroad. And so. But you're right I think The ability to speak English at mother tongue is a crucial element. If you want to successfully make the case for Israeli and international audiences it is a prerequisite but in itself. It's not enough like I sometimes made in my previous job in Israel when I was the spokesman for the prime minister is to meet a young immigrants with mother tongue English mark. I'd like a job like yours. How do I get it right and I would explain to them so good? English is important. But it's as I say it's a necessary prerequisite but it's not in itself enough. You have to know the issues backwards. You have to read everything that is relevant. After the politics you have to know the history you have to understand the issues and I think that is just as important if not more important than having a strong command of the language because he my early teens. I used to despair at some of these really politicians who were fairly Broosk in their approach and even their attire to media interviews with the BBC and others. I don't think that really helped. So this new generation I think led by the Prime Minister himself who speaks in. I think the best way to describe these fluent American. Well I believe. The current prime minister did grow up in Pennsylvania in Philadelphia and his father was a visiting professor and he he he grew up there returning to Israel to do. His Army Service is to mother tongue languages. He had both burning which is a marvellous advantage to have and but I think to be over. Critical of the founding generation because that founding generation includes people like our Evan who was an amazing spokesman for his very articulate People say that he's speeches. Go down in history as some of the most awful speeches in English in the twentieth century thousands of years ago a people land language came together in Israel birth and the cost of Man's life and thought was lifted to a new point of elevation. Then for centuries this pattern was split asunder. The people the land of the language were separated and tragedy and danger befell of the mall separated each from the other. None of these three achieved the creative potent sit which they each knew when they lived together. What IS MODERN ISRAEL? Except the reunion of this people land and language in the sublime fulfillment of history cycle a bridge thrown across the Gulf of continents and generations to symbolize the unity ofo historic experienced. Many people will know you from your competitive interviews with snow during the Gaza offenses being the media spokesman for the prime minister a hugely different communications brief to that of being an ambassador. I was arrested by that idea that when you became the ambassador it was a completely different communications brief almost a different personality from the attack dog to John. Snow on on media so being spokesman I had responsibility over specific areas and as ambassador. You have a much more general responsibility as spokesman. My job was to make sure that the people in international audiences understand Israeli government behavior is government policy and so forth and so that was done through communications as ambassador. That's part of your job as well but you have many other facets economic relationship cultural ties government to government discussions. Him obviously as ambassador. I'M STILL THE PUBLIC FACE FOR ISRAEL. I will do interviews. I will give talks. I will brief and so forth but A. I'm also doing things as ambassador that were not part of my portfolio when I was the government spokesperson. It's a more broad range of of job.
Israel to allow its citizens to visit Saudi Arabia
"A big announcement from the Israeli government on travel to Saudi Arabia and Israel has never allowed it to non Muslim citizens to travel to Saudi Arabia that's because the two countries are still officially at least at war so it came as a surprise on Sunday morning when Israel's interior minister announced that any citizen can now go there without fear of prosecution leading Israeli travel agent mark Feldman says it's something of a pressure tactic link to the pending announcement of a U. S. peace plan he will he said you're going to support the peace plan for trump for a variety of reasons well now we want to say publicly Israelis are welcome Feldman doesn't plan on issuing tickets yet because so far there's no sign that any Saudi visas will be
Future of the Labour Party, ICC Investigation, Black-Jewish Relations
"Liam whore is the Europe editor for moment magazine. It has been covering Labor's antisemitism awesome scandal since two thousand fifteen. He joins us now to help us understand. What's next for that party for British Jews and for the United Kingdom Liam? Thank you so much for joining us. I thank you for inviting me for the most part analysts are chalking up. Labour's defeat to having the wrong message on Brexit but there is is no doubt that Jeremy Corbyn. The Labour leader was historically unpopular. And no doubt that a part of that unpopularity was due to the anti eighty. Semitism that he let grow in the party. Are there grumblings on the far left that Jews are responsible for his defeat. And that's something that British Jews are worrying about. I think what we've seen since the election is people on the far left at Labor constituency meetings and online researching the British Jewish Institutions. Such as the Board of Deputies or indeed the chief rabbi Were in fact stories or conservatives I should say and innocent intervening in the election on their side. That's what he wanted to the things that the board of Deputies hope that the future Labour leader will expunge from the and that is one reason why they've come forward with the ten pledges in recent days. You mentioned the list of ten pledges that the Board of Deputies the kind of umbrella Ella Organisation for British Jews that the Board of Deputies released just a couple of days ago they basically say that these are the ten things or perhaps the first ten things the Labor Party needs to adopt needs to do in order to heal its relationship with the Jewish community. And we don't need to go through them one by one but broadly what are these ten pledges calling calling for. Well as you say broadly the first thing is that Outstanding Cases Anti Semitism in the Party needs to be resolved and the discipline under reprocessed to have to be made independent again and sh- interference from the leadership team sort of around. Jeremy Corbyn in this process must come to an end thereafter. What's I think? What's important folder? The board is to reestablish a working relationship with the leader of your party after all when a function is to be a conduit between the panoply of organizations they represent and and the government Foreign bodies and so forth and finally just add that one of the things they want to see done is that the full I h Ra the definition of Anti Semitism. With all of these examples applauses will be introduced and used in disciplinary cases within the party. That was a major eric. Eric disputes within the party last year or earlier this year. And that's one of the things I want to get done here at. AJC We're very proud of having been a part of authoring during the era definition but for our listeners who aren't familiar with the definition and why it's so important. Can you just say a word about that. Well because of dispute within the party I should say making making more specific is that People on the far left of the party were concerned that this definition would prevent them from Criticizing sizing Israel or Israeli policy. Which of course? He's not well. The definition does he's indicate ways in which rhetoric concerning Israel Israel can tip over into antisemitism I believe for example if people would say that the actions of the Israeli government towards what's the Palestinians in some way resemble the actions of Not Towards Jews in Europe in the nineteen forties So really they had nothing to worry about. But this is all tied to a much larger augmented. It was rambling on throughout the entirety of Jeremy Comex leadership of the Liberal Party concerning anti Israel rhetoric break and wearing that becomes at. You haven't ISM or for example. If someone challenging British Jews were to somehow hold them accountable for the actions actions of the Israeli government. I think that would also be seen as anti Semitic under the IRA definition which is really important. Considering the way that often we've seen across Europe and perhaps in Britain specifically people tried to do that. Try to discredit jus. I think there's a slur that has cropped up in the UK. Zayas people who you you know. They're interested in defaming and demeaning. They don't really have any way to do it except to try to tie them to Israel so I think it's important that the Labor Party adopts the definition in order to make very clear to its constituents that that kind of thing is anti Semitic well quite an in recent days we have an example of that which is that There's no sort of I would say online activists By the name of Rachel cousins. Who goes by the alias? Rachel Swindon who has a following of tens of thousands of people on twitter. It's unclear whether she is or is not in fact a member of the party but she's nonetheless very close to the sort of cold and leadership and in response to the boards pledges. She tweeted that as I previously said that the board was essentially a conservative organization and also came out with is her own or Or perhaps found only list of pledges for the board which more or less argue that the board had to come out and condemn Israeli military action. In the West Bank thank or condemn what she calls the ethnic cleansing of Palestinian communities in in the West Bank in other words as you said holding British Jews accountable for the actions. uh-huh office ready government. which if they at the very least a dangerous road to go down and she somebody who has previous four in this regard having tweeted about the rothschilds and the so-called influence in the past so the point of this is to say that changing the Leo Party is only the first step? They won't be root and branch Tusk to erotic antisemitism from the Ponti it is always interesting to see how those people who take part in what is called the new antisemitism this kind of attacking Jews shoes on the basis of what Israel does how at the end of the day they are also just old antisemites in the way that she brings up Rothschild conspiracies and things like that. I wanted to ask you about one of the pledgers. In particular number eight is entitled engagement with the Jewish community to be made via its main representative groups and then in explains Labor must engage with the Jewish community Levi its main representative groups not through fringe organizations and individuals. That sounds like it's referencing. Something like there's some history there. Can you tell us a little bit about that. Sure I mean I mean Jeremy Corbyn is somebody who was throughout the time he was leader of the party. Never very much interested in the views and concerns all mainstream British Jewish ortganizations. He has historically been in most of the time that he was leader. Always much more comfortable with what the board calls fringe organizations for example He wasn't much interested in The Jewish Labor movement which is sort of the mainstream Organiz ation all Jews in Labor Party or affiliated with the party rather Jewish Voice Labor whose membership I think could fit into a phone box. I mean if you look at their rallies and meetings the the next in the Guardian newspaper. It's always the same ten fifteen twenty people who assigning these latches At the same time At one of the times when the relationship between Jerry in British Jewish groups was was at his lowest he attended a Saito organized by a group called choose. Who are legitimate tendency in the Jewish community and represent people who have felt themselves felt this affiliated pushed away from the mainstream left-wing clock but they themselves I'm sure would say the reps and also a a very small number of people also Jeremy's also been affiliated with sort of anti-zionist ultra Orthodox people who live in his community but he did not have a working relationship with the board he did not have a working relationship with the chief rabbi in so far as I know and not that he had a working relationship with with the Jewish Leadership Council? which sort of is a you might say a rival organization to the Board of Deputies also a representative group so this point eight? This engagement group is really about the board wanting to reestablish Atlantic communication and a working relationship with the party which is sort of one of the sort of raison. d'etre foil for the board. It sells I'm going to move on in just a moment. Kind of forward-looking questions but there is one more retrospective effective thing that I'm curious about. which is what are we to make of people who are real friends of the Jews or certainly seem to be who campaigned for Labor in this last election? I'm thinking of people for example like London. Mayor Sadeq Khan who has said all the right things about anti Semitism done many of the things about about antisemitism but nevertheless tried to make Jeremy Corbyn the next prime minister should we hold that against him. I case if someone likes to Econ we should not hold that against against him and I think I think you know people who reunite kind of position which is to say supposedly oh party but not supposed to Jeremy Corbyn were very torn because the reality is the British electoral system that much like the Americans. There's it ends up becoming a two-party system Elections to the House Elsa parliament more or less function like elections to the House representatives. There are six hundred fifty constituencies. Each insurance becomes its own kind of to race and in many any of them the racist between Labour and the Conservatives and so sort of I would say anti anti Semitic Labor supporters found themselves in a very Korea unenvious position of having to decide. Do I vote for the Conservatives and put into power party that I oppose my entire adult life likely. ooh Aw do I grit my teeth and vote for the Labor Party on the basis that I am somehow voting for the Party and voting for the candidate in my constituency. But somehow not Jeremy Corbyn and I you know I as a journalist. I love about the free in this regard. So I don't have to make such compromises but I nonetheless feel for people who know people like I said Connor or you could answer this people like just flips. Who is now a candidate for leadership who it's not about Anti Semitism in the pause About the kind of compromises. They had to make that time. So no we we. We shouldn't hold I bet against As you intimate in about a month the voting will begin to elect a new leader of Labor this kind of an interesting quirk for our American listeners. The voting voting will actually stay open for more than a month through the beginning of April and people can vote. I guess anytime in that span. Who are the names that we need to know who are likely Lee to win the election and are any of them going to be you know kind of on their own? The answer to Labour's antisemitism problem tackling the antisemitism crisis is not as simple as for lack of a better way of putting removing the head from the snake Having Jeremy Corbyn leader suddenly a good thing because the cost was it the crisis could not be it's solution But in terms of who will become the next leader There this prison time probably two main candidates on the one hand you have Rebecca Long Bailey who is perceived to be the continuity Corbin candidate the date.
"israeli government" Discussed on The Last American Vagabond
"Thank you for joining me today as everyone is continued to be obsessed with the impeachment discussion. There's a lot going on other than that. In fact pretty much everything else other than that. The International Criminal Court is is now to investigate Israeli government crimes. Right because I'm a conspiracy theorist just because I'm a racist because no that's really happening because yet they're actually committing crimes and it doesn't mean that they're not going to potentially find some on the Palestinian side which is what what they're getting into. But I think it's very clear. This is being aimed but it could end up being a very bad thing but none the less. It's based on the fact that there are tangible. Things they can point to that are being mm committed by the Israeli government. That's the whole focal point. It's a very big deal. It's not getting attention. I'm sure you can understand. Why the U N it is perfectly timed from the discussion? We had yesterday the United Nations today. Reiterates after the United States government's suppose it new evidence. That wasn't really new evidence at all that they reiterated that it proves absolutely nothing and then actually censor them on all kinds of different stuff in regard to the JCP away sanctions and just basically seems like the UN is is kind of turning against the Israeli government and the United States government at least as it appears in the most recent few times and we and despite that despite them coming after the United States aides in regard to what they're doing and saying it's wrong and it's it violates resolutions. Will you did what you would expect. They ignore them completely and just cast more sanctions on Iran. Anyway which happened happened today right after that and Isis is actually helping the US agenda in Syria. I know you're shocked to hear that. They're actually helping them the agenda in Syria to stop the Syrian people from heating themselves during this winter. which you know they they do that by taking other gasfields? You could argue that. They're not connected but I think you're smarter than that. And Donald Trump just signed the twenty twenty National Defense Authorization Act into law which literally just happened. I'm not going to really get into that today. But sent it as beneficial starting Zainuddin Law. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be going through this in-depth at some point in the near future to go over all the INS and outs it's exactly what we've already been talking about now. We officially really have space force right. Because that's going to minimize military engagements ray and more money being spent on the Military Harari. All these things that Americans weren't right nope signed it anyway. It actually signed in something that I'm going to also talk about more tomorrow. There's plenty of things that I put off till tomorrow because this was already going late tonight but more about the Nord Stream two pipeline where it seems like Ukraine just made a deal with Russia which completely counters their entire argument to buy about why. That's a bad thing. And they have sanctions in Kim therefore Germany and Russia inside the NDA which trump just signed and the US conceded that. It's not really well. We lost that battle. But we're going to go ahead and sanction them anyway because that's what they're four to punish people for not doing what we say. The exact opposite of what they're for that actually makes them wildly legal but whatever they're going to do it anyway and that was was just signed into law and all the other things we talked about the Iron Dome Hoax and all the other things going on there. It's all signed in all this money going everywhere. Money for Syrian rebels. Money for Israel yet that all just happened and of course it also earmarked money for Afghanistan and all the forever wars that are going to keep going. So that's happening. We're going to talk more about that. In general and also understand how all this relates today to the N. d. a. and the war focused mentality now. The impeachment distraction continues right now of course and there's plenty of people covering it and rightly so to point out that it is a distraction that this is bad that we shouldn't be looking at it this way but if you're going to continue to cover that point then you're part of the distraction. I argue. Look this is a distraction. Here's what you're missing. Which is what I'm trying to do? There's so much going on. Even the coverage of Wyatt's a distraction is part of distraction but today of course Pelosi has so far refused to allow the next step in the process to move forward by actually delaying the handing over of the houses impeachment case to the Senate which interestingly enough and this is the bottom line if she does not hand this over if it does not go get there somehow. He's not officially impeached. So regardless of what they ruled the house it Somehow Pelosi drags her feet refuses to give it or somehow doesn't get there. He's not impeached too. There's all this argument about it but it's pretty cut and dry but the argument is why she's doing it what's going on and it's just keeping it all going and everyone's talking about an everyone's being distracted from everything else going on. It seems pretty much exactly what I thought on. It was a distraction and I think that they're all involved in it. I think that all of this is designed to keep us thinking that they're arguing with each other in reality seems like trump's pretty much going to win twenty twenty now unless people can recognize that they're all part of the same game sadly. I don't see that happening pretty much. Just handed this to them and it's the very people that pretend that they're trying to stop it. It's just offensive but let's get an all the other things going on today that we should be paying attention to and again recognize. I easily could have added on like eleven more more topics to this. That you really should be paying attention to today. But then I would be going until about midnight and I personally can't do that today but let's start with the one that I think. Many of you are especially title interested in something. That's very vindicating something that we should be continuing to point out that this is happening. which is which is a huge for what we've been talking about more than having Palestinians say these things happened or even video of things happening to have this investigation happening based on a key international community decision Asian that holds a lot of weight regardless of what you think about groups like the the UN or like the International Criminal Court? It's still hold a lot of weight. The icy the International Criminal Court is is to investigate alleged war crimes in Palestinian territories. Now it says the International Criminal Court chief prosecutor said today that she will launch the full full investigation into alleged war crimes in the Palestinian territories. Now by the way just real quick the alleged war-crimes they're talking about in this tale Disa- specifically aggressing pressing warcrimes in regard to Israeli actions. But they're calling them alleged war-crimes because that's just what they always do because it hasn't been an actual court of court what of law and a weighing of evidence but the point is that they've seen these things they've seen the videos they've seen them ignored. They've seen them say dislike about it. So these are an alleged warcrimes France. The argument they have is that the shop those people because they were doing so and so that the argument is whether or not they had a reason that still makes that action of war crime as Abby Martin's documentary gossip fights for freedom makes that overwhelmingly clear she even even on the documentary itself. It actually brings down the UN the conventions and shows you the actual writing where it's if there's no way to steps. They did this action. They shot this child or they did any number of things and no matter. What their argument it it is against the law and so this is why this is going forward? I just WanNa make that clear. They always say alleged but it's pretty clear that they're not but they're going to continue this. They're going to begin. Win This massive investigation and they which could include charges against Israelis or Palestinians according to Reuters. Now I think that's a logical thing to say a even if it's very clear this is predominantly on the Israeli side. Because they're very well could be things that they also did. Now I would argue. They're fighting from a position of absolute weakness. Where or they're being stepped up? Someone has their boot on your neck and you stabbed him in the leg was was that really unjustified lots for them to decide I argue no but the bottom line is that this this could also be wielded the other way this could be driven. Maybe that's what we're seeing. Maybe this is going to be driven. and IT'S GONNA they're gonNA find the Palestinians and everything and we know that's not true but that's what we could be looking at. I don't think that's what's happening. I really don't but that's it's you know full disclosure to see that that's really what it could be happening because it's interesting to watch watch how this has been developing. We've seen John Bolton stand up and see all the ICU see can't investigate any of our allies just a ridiculous claim and then we see things change we see a prosecutor people involved high up in the quit and walk away and rightly so because they say this body has no power anymore they just get the Dec- no and do what they want. So it's possible that we've seen this brought up again for that very reason. That's just my skepticism. But it's healthy today. It's healthy skepticism. Now that was really prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu of course said the has no jurisdiction to investigate the Palestinian territories. Which of course screams innocence right you? You can't come investigate us where the Palestinians are saying. Yes yes please come investigate. So that's usually a good sign of what's actually going on. Now it's quote. The court has no jurisdiction in the case. Benjamin Benjamin says the only has jurisdiction over petitions submitted by sovereign states but there has never been a Palestinian state Netanyahu who said in a statement. Well that's an interesting thing to say. Well guess what. He's very very very wrong. When we're Palestinians born what was what was all this area before the first World War? When Britain got the mandate over Palestine? What was is Palestine? Then Palestine was then the area between the Mediterranean and the Iraqi border. You say there's no such thing east. In West noon. Eastern West Bank was Palestine. I'm a Palestinian. From twenty one until forty eight. I carried a Palestinian passport. That is gold. The Meyer Oh the first Israeli prime ministers on the founders first of Israel and understand that I actually don't think then Yahoos mistaken that he's wrong. I'm actually pretty damn certain he's flat out lying because this is a straight great propaganda effort. That's been going on for a long time and you can. And what's interesting. Is this video. I've played before. It's the only place that I can find this these dates. This is on somebody else's random site account it's downloaded and re uploaded it with like thirty five years. It's out there still but you notice that you just won't find this at least I didn't on some major locations that you might expect it. I wonder why that might be. Maybe because this counters their entire claim that there's never been a Palestinian state. If you have a passport I think that solves that problem right. Think about how. What a big deal that most of you probably seen this because either you saw this show or you already knew about it? But they actually stand up including our own government representatives day. And it's not like they can't find this information they know this they stand up and they flat out lie to you and say there's no such thing as a Palestinian. There's Benjamin saying right there to argue that will they have no right to fight for their their human rights because they don't exist ridiculous just just to make sure that you saw that. I'm gonNA play this again. Golden Meyer for first prime minister's founder of Israel..

Why Israeli settlements are an obstacle to peace
"Over the past half century. Israel has built hundreds of settlements or Jewish enclaves on the land it captured from Jordan in the Six Day War of nineteen sixty seven seven. This land claimed by Palestinians for their future state which is why settlements are seen by many as an obstacle to peace the president of over four hundred thousand Israeli settlers living in the West Bank basically means that a Palestinian state cannot come into being is our Israel correspondent respondent Mason Jerusalem. Many of those settlements are stuck in between the main Estonian cities and towns so contiguous state cannot exist as long as they're there and their presence also means that it was obvious that so in effect they ensure that the military occupation of the Westbank continues the the announcement came just ahead of a key date in Israel. Today is the deadline for opposition leader. Benny Ganz to build coalition bowling. September's inconclusive election Prime Minister Benjamin. Netanyahu has already failed to form a government. Both candidates praised the trump administration's change in policy but the decision was America at odds with much of the international community. The international consensus regarding the settlements has been there in contravention of the full Geneva Convention. Attention which basically says that transfer or settlement of an occupied territory by the occupying power is against international law. And that's been the interpretation Shen of the Geneva Convention regarding Israeli settlements by most of the leading legal experts. There are some dissenting views of. Israel clings to those dissenting ending views in building the settlements. But that's been the broad consensus for decades now and so in that sense Mike Pompeo's announcement came as something of surprise. Well the competitive management didn't come as a surprise because certain elements within the administration were very pro Israel and pro the settlement lobby chief among them the US ambassador to Israel. Israel David Friedman who before becoming a master was both trump's bankruptcy la and financial backer of the settlements. They have been trying for the past three years to get a clear statement out of the administration saying that American doesn't see the settlements as being illegal and it has to be noted that in the past also the Reagan administration. Distraction made similar statements. So it hasn't always been one hundred percent clear what the American position on this has been. US public statements on settlement activities. In the West Bank have been inconsistent over decades in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight. The Carter Administration categorically concluded that Israel's establishment of civilian settlements was inconsistent with international law. However in Nineteen eighty-one president? Reagan disagreed with that conclusion. And stated that he didn't believe that the settlements were inherently l.. Legal actually most of the American administration's haven't even talked about the legality. They've called the settlements an obstacle to peace instead of diving into this rather controversial legal question so in a sense this kind of puts a finer point on kind of formalizes. Something that from the American standpoint had been kind of informally the case. What has been the case over the past three years? Because the trump administration had been very ambivalent towards the Israeli settlement activity previous administrations had condemned settlements especially the first Bush administration tried to limit funding to Israel while the tantamount building was going on the trump administration and some of its representatives have been much more friendly towards the past two years. The trump administration has made a series of statements and actions regarding the Israel Palestine conflict back in December seventeen nineteen. They announced that they recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital that in a few minutes later move the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. A few months ago we had the recognition of Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights. And in between these. We've had a number of steps. Was the Palestinians. We had cutting off of aid various Palestinian agencies to the United Nations nations agency which works with Palestinian refugees the closure of the Palestinian mission in Washington. All these things have put out a very clear signal where the trump administration restauration stands in the conflict. And even the timing of this announcement just a couple of days before the deadline for Bennigan's to form a government. Do you think it's connected to the current political the turmoil in Israel not directly connected to the current political situation for two reasons festival. It hasn't been times as some of the previous gestures were to help Out On the eve of an election other convenient junctures it doesn't seem to have been closely coordinating with Israeli government. That seems to have been something. which was it was very much an internal decision of administration? And do you think it's significant that it was Mr Pompeo who made the announcement. Well that's probably more about American politics in parents trying to show that he's not trump in many ways and loyal to some of trump's closest advisers. I think pump is also looking beyond the horizon of the trump trump administration and shoring up his own political bias. Perhaps his own run for the White House and this is a popular move among voters who he would also be relying upon one day if he runs for the candidacy and for the White House himself and now that Mr Pompeo has made this policy reversal. What do you think the immediate impact will be the speaking? Both Israeli officials Palestinians. No one's expecting an immediate impact even though they've been promises by Netanya before the last two election campaigns of going even further annexing parts of the West Bank. All those plans on hold because it doesn't a political deadlock there's no coalition in Israel. We have Netanyahu position bet against both failing instigate a majority Israel has been building settlements or the past fifty years regardless of what the administration positions being and on the Palestinian side. They've lost lost hope in anything. Good for them coming out. The trump administration long ago so for that. This wasn't a surprise. And they're facing their daily challenges whatever someone is saying in Washington it material to them but what about the prospects for grander scale change for the notion of annexation or in the other direction a meaningful peace process so the impact is perhaps lung It won't change anything the next few weeks and months. But when finally new government is formed in Israel. If it's a right wing government then the impetus to go ahead and AMEX parts. What's the West Bank will increase? Because now they seem to have a green light from the administration and even if the new government will be more central government under Benny Gansel some other interests lita. Yep It'll be much more difficult for them to justify so these ready public making any kind of changes on the ground baptists manning so because people will say them but the Americans okay so why make any of these changes if the settlements especially the ones which are deep within the West Bank or allowed to continue to grow that means the majority patient won't end either and any prospect of Palestinian statehood will be non-existent loop Israel basically in charge of one st with millions of Palestinians without optical rights and that's not the democratic say that Israel claims and takes pride in being so it's a situation which really is ready to have a solution Lucien right now and if anything compare announcement has made a solution for that even more remote

"The world famine million people suffering from cholera people drinking filthy water and what i n senator leap and senator murphy happened system that the time is long overdue for the united states congress to accept its constitutional responsibility of war making and not give that open to the president and that's been the case for many many years and we brought a resolution to the floor we've got forty four votes which is a good start but the bottom line is that if the united states is going to get involved in a war it should not be the president who makes that decision it is under the constitution the congress congress have got to reestablish that authority let's stay in that region for one second because i want to turn to the violent clashes in gaza over the weekend you tweeted about this yesterday you wrote quote the killing of palestinian demonstrators by rayleigh forces in gaza is tragic it is the right of all people to protest for a better future without a violent response unquote the israeli government called the protests quote violent terror demonstrations the ambassador of israel to the united nations said hamas fighters were interspersed route the crowd using human shields and were killed after making quote direct attacks on israeli positions do not accept the israeli government's explanation no i don't think from what my understanding is is you have tens and tens of thousands of people who are engaged in a non protest i believe now fifteen or twenty people palestinians have been killed in many many others have been wounded so i think it's a difficult situation but my assessment is that israel overreacted on that but again the bottom line here is that the united states of america has got to be involved in dealing with the terrible tragedy in gaza whether it is syria whether it's yemen whether it is gaza we're looking at the need for the international community led by the united states to deal with that situation gaza is a disaster right now you thought is off the charts and we're gonna continue to see those kinds of demonstrations and protests unless the world community recognizes the problem in gaza and brings the.
