Iran Calls Natanz Atomic Site Blackout 'Nuclear Terrorism'

"On sunday described a blackout at its underground natanz atomic facility. An active nuclear terrorism reading regional tensions as well as powers and tehran continue to negotiate over its tattered nuclear deal while there was no immediate claim of responsibility. Suspicion fell immediately on israel where it's media nearly uniformly reported. A devastating cyber attack orchestrated by the country causing the blackout. If israel was responsible it further heightened tensions between the two nations already engaged in a shadow conflict across the wider middle east israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who met on sunday with. Us defense secretary. Lloyd austin has vowed to do everything in his power to stop the nuclear deal. Details remained few about what happened. Leeann sunday morning at the facility which was initially described as a blackout caused by the electrical grid feeding. It's above ground workshops and underground enrichment holes. The i a the united nations body that monitors tehran's atomic programme earlier said it was aware of media reports about the incident at natanz and had spoken with iranian officials about it however natanz has been targeted by sabotage in the past the stuxnet computer virus discovered in two thousand ten and widely believed to be a joint.

Should we re-think who gets the vaccine first?

"So the vaccines are coming as we keep saying and we keep hearing but one of the big discussion points. This week is who should get it first. So we've talked about this before we've talked about high risk groups like elderly people. 'cause they're at high risk of severe disease being at the front of the queue and healthcare workers because they have a high likelihood of both catching it and also spreading it. The obvious ones but there's been arguments that teachers should be given priority treatment and supermarket workers because they are frontline workers. And maybe we should also consider giving it to people who work in quarantine hotels transport because they've been spread as in the past when we have a limited supply of the vaccine. Straight up. norman. Who should be at the front of that queue. It's hard to argue with the priorities. The federal government's put out and in fact hotel quarantine workers boorda workers people dealing with people come from overseas drivers. They are actually at the front of the queue and they need to be because they are our first line of defense and they're also the most vulnerable so they need to be protected and if the vaccines dupe prevent transmission they will also be a ring of defense so that they will kind of if they do get infected they will resist infection not spread it into the community so they are very much early recipients of the vaccine the vaccine healthcare workers are hard to argue with particularly in aged care as our feel elderly care because they are extremely vulnerable to serious illness. So again it's hard to argue with that you've really gotta go for care and protection and saving lives and saving severe disease as your first priority and also if possible preventing transmission the community and remember h. Care has been a transmission point as well once it gets into each care. And they've been focused of clusters so then. The debate is a perfectly reasonable one who dealing with say young kids teachers and others of the front lines such as supermarket workers. You can argue that too on the basis of protection now. There is another argument here. Once you've covered the people who are most vulnerable whether in fact by then you'll know more about reduce transmission and whether you should switch tack because in fact if you really wanna reduce transmission in the community you need to immunize people who are at most risk of infection and those are not the elderly. The people who are at risk of infection are the younger people in the community because they know my bow their more mobile how they're out there the socially mixing and so you'd head off for people aged over eighteen and under sixty five and they might become your higher priority because if they are protected from infection they will van protect the people and that's true hair immunity. And then you away at that so that would require a bit of a radical change in approach and an assumption that you're reducing transmission but it should be more information coming in from the towns of moves. People who've been immunized overseas is already some evidence from israel reduce transmission but again in israel. The haven't yet moved into those age groups so you can't really tell but by the time we get there we might be in a position to say let's pivot and will actually go really go hell for leather for young people so we know that in australia with getting two different types of vaccine mckenna smallest supply of the fayza shot and then a lot of the oxford astrazeneca shot which has been a source of debate in australia. Because there's different efficacy between those two vaccines. And we've actually had a question about that from one about isreaeli karenna costa's gary who lives on a kibbutz and gary makes the point in agriculture. When we give treatment against pests or does as a good farmer does not repeat the same treatment twice in the same season. You should use different products different methods to attack the same disease or pest and he's wondering whether the same would bear out with a vaccine. Well if we move away from the mango and avocado plantations on an israeli boots towards vaccines. The reality with a vaccine. Is that almost all if not all at this. Stage have been designed based on the wuhan version of the corona virus from almost a year ago. So it's a good question but the reality is that changing vaccines not going to change the target. The target is despite protein from wuhan virus. It may be as time goes on and particularly with the worry about the south african variant of the virus that you might be getting code anti escape or antibody escape and you might need to redesign the vaccine with a new spike protein. In which case. Probably the fis are and moderna. Vaccines are going to be more flexible to do that. And they say we can do that within six weeks so it's not much it's not so much by varying the vaccine technology because the vaccines are all targeting. The same part of the virus

Coronavirus in the U.S. - What lessons can we learn from Israel?

Coronavirus in the U.S. - What lessons can we learn from Israel?

"Rosenberg is a senior writer for tablet magazine. He's covered elections and multiple countries interviewed. White House officials taken on Cyber Nazis. He's also a regular speaker and commentator on contemporary anti-semitism both online and off but he's also got a softer side for the last five years. He's been composing an original album of chabad melodies. He joins us now from his home in New York where like the rest of us he sheltering in place. Yeah you're welcome to the people of the pod. Good to be here. So let's talk about the hard news. I we are sheltering in place. What lessons can we learn from Israel right now that we should perhaps be applying here in the United States that we aren't doing so now yeah I mean I think that in general if trump look to people who he sees as his sort of political kindred spirits and other countries she would learn a lot about what should be done you know? Britain is doing a complete full lockdown. They're enforcing it with the police Israel today as you know when it through a similar sort of situation where they're basically shuttering all of the non essential things and people have to stay inside and there's limits to how you can go out and all of that and this is draconian and it's hard but if you do it quickly and you do it for a certain period of time. Then you hopefully really mitigate the impact of the virus on your healthcare system and then it can be at manageable levels going forward and then we have time to develop all sorts of mitigation strategies. Stuff that trump wants right. Whether it's you know anti medications that we discover a ten health which we already have or working on a vaccine or figuring out which places in our country we can open. Because it's not as bad but all of these things ramping testing. You just need to buy yourself time to do those things. The stimulus package will help. Don't you think or no? Yeah and there are better and worse versus of a stimulus package. And that's what's congress debating but one of the ways you make sure that you can get through. A lockdown is by supporting businesses in the workers that are being forced by the government. And by this pathogen. Not through any fault of their own. It's not like the banks best over people and then suddenly find themselves in a bad situation. These are people who no fault of their own are getting messed over economically so you want the government to step in and tie them over during that time so that way. They can come back strong when ready to reopen the economy. So that makes sense. So how do you think that the differences of opinion about how to handle this are going to affect the upcoming elections? Do you think it will play a role at all? Oh I mean I have no idea you know this from covering Isreaeli politics but anyone who makes predictions about these things is asking to look like a fool in two months time. Who would have even thought that there would be a global pathogen destroying the global economy two months ago right the factors that were certain signs of it. But you know people didn't know how far it would go and so on and so forth and so I wouldn't say that. That's the deciding factor. I think that trump will obviously be judged on what happens with the vice now if the virus peters out because there are for example competing studies done by very good researchers in the United Kingdom. One of which most policy has been made on the Imperial College Study. Which shows that really suppress this virus? It's GONNA kill millions of people in various countries. Which is why policymakers have made such hard stone calls on these things. But there's another study that came out of Oxford more recently where they said. Actually we think the virus lot more contagious than people. Think and many more people haven't which means that just a Lotta people get an and nothing happens to them. And we know that they had it but also means that it will spread across the country pretty quickly quicker than we thought and a lot of people will be immune and the virus. Will Peter out on. Its own at least for a little bit until we get another wave. Immunity wears off right well to be sure. Asian Americans are suffering the brunt of the prejudice. The blame the cruelty out there having to do with the spread of the virus but there are also a fair share of conspiracy theories bubbling up out. There that no surprise. Blame the Jews. I'm curious what you've seen out there since you monitor this kind of stuff. What have you seen that maybe does surprise you or at least shocks you. And how do you control the spread of that virus? Yeah so you've got to sort of antisemitic. Responses to the virus. One of them is what I always called the goebbels gap which is the amount of time between something terrible happening in the world and someone got away to blame the Jews for it. So that's discussing. Which is that there are people out there. In the conspiracy fever swamps to talk about this being sort of most odd thing or you know Israel operated thing and also other conspiracy theories putting other shadowy actress. So that's out there. And then there's another brand. Which is the sort that just celebrates when Jews die from it and specifically Israelis under the cover that anti Zionism makes it okay to celebrate when random people die right and so you had people after his run out this first corona virus death on social media? This was actually not a small tiny people. It was a lot of people tweeting horrific nasty things like. Let's go when they you know. Israel HAS FIRST CORONA VIRUS DEATH. And of course it comes out of course that it's an eighty eight year old. I think he was. He was eighty years old. The Holocaust survivor. You know wonderful. Lovely amazing human being and a lot of those people ended up looking particularly that of course. If this person was a truck driver it would just as evil right tonight to celebrate that person's death simply because of their nationality right so that's another way that certain people have exposed themselves right in response to the corona virus. And so you know you see both of those things. They haven't been super prominent. I think that one of the things that occur rotavirus world does is that it's sort of overwhelms everything else. So it's one thing if there's a terrorist attack in France and it doesn't affect the vast majority of people in the entire world so there's lots of people around the world who as their pastime could speculate which sadly conspiracy or Jews were behind it. But when like you're actually being actively threatened by the virus you have other things on your mind. You don't have as much time to get into super conspiracy theorizing of course after disasters. That's when people start finding trying to find people to blame and the Jews are always on that list right so that's actually sometimes when you worry

Israeli officials are condemning the decision the International Criminal Court chief prosecutor spent nearly the five years considering whether to open a war-crimes investigation at the request of Palestinian authorities now icy prosecutor. Fatou Ben. Souda says she's decided to open an investigation. I am satisfied that war crimes have been or are being committed in the West Bank including East Jerusalem and the Gaza streep this could include crimes committed by Israelis and Palestinians.

Trump Reverses U.S. Position on Israeli Settlements in West Bank

"The trump administration is up ended four decades of US foreign policy in the Middle East Secretary State. Mike Pompeo said yesterday that Israeli settlements are no longer violation of international law. Roughly seven hundred hundred thousand Israelis live in settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. Land that is also claimed by Palestinians. Israeli leaders welcomed the trump administration's decision and Palestinians as well as nations across the world warned that the move undermines hope for a broader peace deal joining us from Tel Aviv. Is Dan Shapiro. The former. US ambassador entertain Israel under President Obama ambassador. What makes his shift in policy so important? The truth is is that it's more symbolic than actual every every administration since the Carter Administration voiced their opposition to Israeli settlement construction the West Bank without making reference to the legal question on policy grounds. What's what's important about it? However is that it seems to give green light? And that's quite different from any previous administration to significant expansion of Israeli settlement and at a time when and advocates for Israeli settlement expansion are also talking about unilateral annexation of the West Bank or portions of the West Bank. Clearly those steps would make it much much harder to ever achieve a two-state solution and since president trump has never endorsed a two-state solution. It appears to be a continuation of an effort essentially to move us away from that track and kill off that option. What reaction have you heard about this announcement in Israel and the occupied territories for many Israelis? They are appreciative of of it because at least some Israeli settlements are not particularly controversial. There consensus points in Israel. The ones that are larger and closer to the pre nineteen sixty seven. Evan borders and which most peace plans have envisioned Israel retaining a kind of a land swap but overall it's consistent with the Israeli view that settlements are not illegal under international law And so it's been received positively by both the prime minister and the leader of the opposite. And what about Palestinians. What what what about opinion in the West Bank Palestinians Certainly strongly oppose any settlement construction. They always have. They weren't thrilled with the policy of previous administrations. Either either that didn't focus on the illegal question And also didn't necessarily succeed in stopping Israeli settlement but I think they view this decision by the trump administration shen as the latest in a series of blows to the administration's ability to serve as any kind of mediator in the final days of the Obama Administration under which you served as ambassador answers Israel The US allowed the UN Security Council to pass a resolution declaring the settlements a flagrant violation of international law. If that was the feeling feeling of the Obama White House why wait until the final days of eight years of making policy to ratchet things up and that was an abstention on a resolution that the Obama Administration did not draft but came at a time when there were settlement expansions Happening every previous administration also found itself in a situation in which Security Council resolutions came before them which included language which was not identical to US policy but which ultimately abstained on and allowed to To pass because the United States has been quite isolated on this question about illegality of Israeli settlements of reasonably the rest of the world. Well Jared Kushner's peace plan it turns out to be a little more than a flashy economic program with no clear road map to peace there. Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital the relocation of the US embassy a to Jerusalem and the closure of the Palestinian diplomatic office in Washington and The declaration that the Golan Heights Israeli sovereign territory when you stack all this up up. What is US policy in the Mideast? you know the administration has Held out the prospect of plan that would lay out their policy for now on nearly three years That plans never been presented. And it's not clear at ever will be presented but every indication is that the trump administration's view of the end state of that. It hopes to see in this part of the world is Isreaeli annexation of a wide swaths of the West Bank in where settlements exist and even beyond those areas and around that isolated islands of a limited Palestinian autonomy. Are you describing a one state solution. And it's not a solution It's probably a one St outcome where we might call a binational state outcome. It also is not very sustainable in my judgment and it won't be the policy of successor administration perhaps as early as fourteen months from now if if a Democratic president takes office so elaborate on on that where do you see hope for a two state solution still it would take tremendous leadership from Israeli and Palestinians and with American support from Arab leaders to first of all convince very disillusioned public's that it's even possible. None of this possible in the current leadership constellation in fact I think a realistic policy of the next administration if it's Wants to restore the two state. Solution is the center to the American is not to say we want to achieve a two-state solution. But rather we want to find ways to stabilize it and keep it alive for later at the moment two-state solution certainly not in the cards. That risk is that it goes over the cliff and is not achievable even later when a different and boulder leadership is in place Dan Shapiro the former. US Ambassador to Israel under President Obama. Thanks very much for your thoughts. My pleasure thank thank you.

Madoff Whistleblower Targets GE; Israel Bars Omar, Tlaib

"Felicia israel has barred u._s. congresswoman rasheeda and ilan omar from entering israel and didn't this follow pressure from president trump yup so president trump this morning had quite pointed tweet encouraging israel to go ahead and do this. There's been some conversation here in recent days that israel might back away from an announcement made last month that it would let the congresswoman in israel says the decision was mainly. I do too the lawmakers ternary but it seems like the timing between trump's very very pointed statements <hes> and the sudden reversal on israel's part. It's hard to not link them. Netanyahu faces reelection in september one of the things he's campaigned on. There's a strong relationship with president trump and president trump before his last election in april meet some moves to really help netanyahu <hes> before the vote he recognize israel sovereignty over the golan heights he president trump hosted netanyahu at the white house and i think there is some speculation here that netanyahu is counting on trump again to offer him some sort of gesture before the election shen and there's a feeling that netanyahu wouldn't wanna do anything to his trump off but officially israel says that the decision had more to do you with the tenure of the lawmakers also wasn't another factor the congresswoman support for boycotting israel. I think the deputy foreign minister made this is on israeli public radio yeah exactly so basically yes that they were their supporters of boycott divestment and sanctions movement israel pass a law recently recently that it has the authority to deny entry to the country based on those grounds <hes> excited this law when saying <hes> that they wouldn't let these lawmakers in pointed to write-in ary which they said was a visit to palestine not israel that skipped any official meetings things with with isreaeli government or opposition members <hes> in israel sites interpretation of this itinerary which made available yet they felt it was fueling the boycott movement isn't the most unusual aspect of this affair felicien sure mr trump's tweet. That's a rather unusual request. Yeah i mean it's a pretty unprecedented in unheard of move by american president president to encourage an ally to crack down on his political opponents are used to cover the seat department and i know american diplomats take care to try to keep politics politics out of international relations. Were seeing a different approach here and i think it's causing duck me a lot of concern releasing some court it diplomatic circles in israel and also in the u._s.

"isreaeli" Discussed on KUGN 590 AM

"I'm John Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show. Bob Zimmerman keeps the website behind the black his take around the world for space programs that are in various stages of success or delays. Bob avergage into the European Space Agency. The essay itself has come to a better idea that we've been talking about for several years. And as I recall this dates back to the twentieth, century. Why did it take them so long? And what does the reusable rocket main for them, does this mean they can compete again? Good evening tube. Good evening, John. Well I mean coming to the game very, very late doesn't mean you can compete. It means you recognize that you're supposed to compete. In fact, all the stories for the next few minutes will be what I call the new colonial movement having to do all the European the world global effort to get into space outside of the United States. So let's talk about Europe this week Europe. Finally. Admitted that its refusal to build the area on six. It's next generation rocket as a reusable rocket was a mistake, and it wasn't steak because they're not even within the European Space Agency with the U, N P and spotters of space agency Noah wants to buy tickets on areas six it's more expensive. And so they have now approved a major engineering research project to different projects, actually, to create two different types of reusable rocket. One of those rockets isn't outright deal of face. Falcon nine no question of even the effect is essentially right SpaceX is of falcon nine. The other one is kind of an imitation of American idea that existed in the late nineties called the Rotan, which was using actually a helicopter concept to slow down a capsule as it was coming back to earth, literally helicopter propels at the top to slow down came down, anyway, actually going to this now. And this, I think, is because it is an interesting political component within internal politics Francis always been the dominant player in the European Space Agency. They always fight with Germany. Well, this proposal, these two research projects does not involve France at all. It involves Germany and companies from Germany, Switzerland, Portugal and Spain. And so this clearly, I think if some internal Paul. Going on here where people who don't agree with France and area on six decided to move independently of the puzzle about the space agency. Do we know? Is it viable is it is it precarious too? We know about its as support from a collective support because they've always been subsidised. Well, they have the support is apparently pretty strong. They want their rockets they need they're all rockets, but they also within the European partners various countries, it's very clear that they're not happy with what has been decided to do, which is producing rocket costs. More than SpaceX is right now it costs more. And by the time it flies in two years, it's going to be even more expensive won't be more expensive than they're gonna charge but launch costs dropped again. And so they're faced with this. And so there's this is I think a revolt within that then you're. These are going to want wanna compete. That's what it needs this, colonial movements. They wanna compete. Let's, let's go onto bear sheet. What is best she to bear? She if you remember, she was the Isreaeli privately funded Landa that got into lunar orbit, but then unfortunately, failed to land, and it's last attempt in April. Well, the they said the company space L, which is a nonprofit in Israel said they were going to build a bear sheet to well this week. They announced that Barasheet to is not going to fly to the moon decided they are going to do they've done that they're going to do something else instead, while they haven't done it. They got to the moon, but they didn't land that was the goal. So what I think is happening is they this is speculation on my part. But I think that they that having trouble raising these funds they need to build a lunar Lander again. And so they're looking for something else that they can setting the sites. Loa. They can find a mission that can fund. That's what's going on. I could be wrong. But I mean it seems to me that a Luna Landers thing should go demonstrated. They were really close to making that happen Chang, four and you to you to this is our little Jade rabbit. They wake up all well, with the mission bomb who knows China. They don't really tell us. This is a lunar land from the nuclear loophole oneal movement in China. They landed on the faucet of the moon back last year. They have woken for this seventh Luna day. The only news we have this is Chinese news report, which I will tell you is almost verbatim a steal from the Chinese news report when they awoke these robots for this six lunar day, so they're not really telling us much from what I can gather just tracking the amount of distance U2. traveled, it traveled about seventy five feet in the last lunar day, fourteen days, when they had daylight in the six day. They it seems to be traveling about a hundred feet every day. Though it also does appear that the numbers are going down with each day. They were only supposed to last three Luna days, the now opening into this seven there, well beyond the limits, and the this is an assessment chievements, but, you know, it is China. They don't tell us much. So I have limited I can only speculate a little bit. What's going on? But I do know you to still out there in this communicate they're working to is the Japanese space agency's ah so far very successful probe of the asteroid reu- coup. But it is looking for why sample grab what they won. They already have made one sample grab. But if you remember, they created a using projectile oficial a man made crater on you do. And what the goal is now to do. Second touching goes sample grab within that crater. That's not a very big crazy. You'd hardly notice it if you look at the surface. Disturbed some soil, but that, that, that, that creator gets into the interior of the asteroids. So they wanna make sample grab to grab some interior from both from literally below the surface, they've got a surface grab. They wanna get something below the surface until a lot about the asteroid. And so they had hesitations about doing this. They've made the decision they're going to try on July eleven. I've in the report here. I discovered for the first time that there was some slight damage to the probes. Camera and other requirement during the first touch touch, and go sample grab not known that they had not said anything about that. But they say it doesn't seem to make any significant difference. And they think it's worth the risk to do this to get that second sample. I agree with them. Without question roscosmos. This is the long. Very sad story of the new spaceport Vostochny, yet, more indications that they have not cleaned up either their quality control or their transparency. This is mostly the overall pervasive corruption that permeates Russian society of so two review. Stocks ni is new spaceport. They were building it building for more than a decade. It's cost billions and billions of Russian money, a lot of money. It went way over budget. It's been behind schedule.

I make that trade John, I'd pay three thousand dollars. To get six point five million basically walked free is indicates to me that Russia is not cleaned up that corruption and in a space program, you wanna make space go to space space, engineers hard. If there's any dishonesty involved in the effort, you're gonna fail because the dishonesty will make you not, look, honestly, at TRE problems. And I think that's where Russia is right now.

Money in the West Bank: Kushners peace plan

"We have far us a rare opportunity to bring security and stability and peace to this region at to it's people even for the man who makes much of his negotiating ability, settling, the conflict between Israel and Palestine could be too hard deal to strike the person to whom President, Donald Trump has delegated this most intractable of political challenges is his son in law, and senior adviser Jared Kushner, the presidency's at something that has to be solved that he very much wants to be solved. And it's something that he's personally put a lot of time to try to see today Mr Kouchner will make his first push to resolve the conflict at a conference in Bahrain ill unveil his plan for investments of fifty billion dollars in the Middle East half of it in the West Bank, and Gaza. The meeting is being overshadowed by simmering tensions between Iran and America just yesterday. Mr. Trump announced new sanctions including on the office of. Iran supreme leader. But as the administration attempts diplomacy in Israel and Palestine, there are more fundamental problems for mR Kushner, neither of those governments will be attending today. Representatives from America. And at least six Arab states are gathering in behind for what the Americans are calling the peace of prosperity workshop. Greg Carlstrom is our Middle East. Correspondent it's a two day event that is the first piece of Donald Trump's long promised ultimate deal. For solving the Israeli Palestinian conflict, and this is meant to be the economic piece of it. It's looking for ways to develop Palestine's economy to improve its infrastructure, and to sort of offer the Palestinians, a peace dividend in the event of a broader deal with the Israelis. Now, ironically, not in attendance, the Palestinians themselves, both Palestinian government and top businessmen from the Palestinian territories are boycotting the event nor any Israeli officials invited to attend there will be some as Railly's they're businessmen. There is private citizens, but no one from the government in attendance. And so what do we know about the details of this peace plan? We know very little about the political side of Jared Kushner's peace plan what we. Do know is a ninety six page document that the White House released over the weekend and advance of this workshop which reads like a report from a consulting firm. It's a laundry list of fifty billion dollars worth of projects for the Palestinian, economy, quite comprehensive it covers everything from agriculture and tourism to improving the telecommunications infrastructure to governance issues. Like taxation, a lot of it is not new. It's been culled together from decades of work on development in the Palestinian. Territories again, we don't know is the politics that underpins any of this, and how the Israeli Palestinian conflict is actually meant to be resolved. So why is this plan? So squarely focused on the economics in a conflict that has deep political roots. Why is there an economic way in here? Well, there are two schools of thought on that the argument from the White House and from American diplomats. Is that by starting with the economics, the US is offering an incentive to the Palestinians? They're presenting what they call a vision for the future. Her and telling the Palestinians, if you go along with the political side of our deal, here's this transformational economic plan that we can offer that will vault your economy into the twenty first century, the more cynical take on this would be the economic part is quite easy. Again, there's decades of stuff the draw from here. People have been working on this for a long time and pouring money into the Palestinian economy, is not hard. What's much harder is resolving questions of borders and refugees, and the status of Jerusalem? And the administration has been postponing that side of the plan for many, many months, perhaps, because they haven't quite worked at what they want to do with it yet, and I guess the Palestinians them are taking that more cynical view. And that's why they're not at this conference. They are for the Palestinian view of this. You have to go back about the year eighteen months. Go back to I December of two thousand seventeen when Donald Trump recognize Jerusalem. Israel's capital reversing decades of precedent in American politics, while previous presidents have made. This major campaign promise they failed to deliver today. I am delivering. He then proceeded to cut all forms of American aid to the Palestinians. And then after President Trump recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital best, the Palestinian President rejected his so called alternate deal, and that has been the Palestinian line ever since. Would add for we said, no to Trump. We will take set your. Deal of the century is the slap of the century. The Palestinians feel like the US has spent eighteen months now beating up on them as offering this one carat in the midst of a number of other sticks. And they feel like they have no reason to take this into to sacrifice their aspirations for sovereignty and a capital in Jerusalem, and so on, and so forth and exchange for fifty billion dollars worth of investment will. What about the Israelis? They aren't going to be at this conference either as you said ironically, why is that? They're not. And there are two reasons for that one is because the Palestinians rejected this conference and have rejected Trump's plan number of Arab states, went to the Trump administration and said, because the Palestinians are not there, because they're boycotting we're not entirely comfortable attending a conference with high level Israel officials but no Palestinian representation. And so the Trump administration in the end decided not to invite any Israeli officials, but even before that, of course, Israel has now plunged into a bit of political turmoil. There's a fresh election scheduled in September because prime minister Netanyahu was unable to form a government after the previous election. And so no one from his interim cabinet from his mostly right wing. Interim cabinet wants to go sit in Bahrain and discuss economic initiatives that would be beneficial to the Palestinians. And so what about the other half of it? Then, do you think the, the pending political plan can sort of selves, the sort of rocky start for the economic plan? I. Question is, if we ever see the political part of this plan, the earliest that could realistically come out now because of the new Israeli election would be November after the next Isreaeli prime minister forms of government by November then we start getting into not only the holiday season but also campaign season in America. It's not clear. If President Trump wants to roll out a major Israeli Palestinian initiative, while he's out on the campaign trail. So it may be an you hear from American diplomats, even that they think the earliest the political side of this plan could possibly come out would be a second, Trump term. Thanks very much for joining us, Greg.

From wondering, I'm David Brown and this business wars daily on this Monday, June twenty fourth. Sotheby's the famed auction house just closed its biggest sale ever. It sold itself to French Isreaeli businessman Patrick, dry for three point seven billion dollars dry. He is a telecom and cable industry tycoon. He founded European cable company. I'll tease in two thousand one and has a reputation for building a global business empire through acquisitions and aggressive cost-cutting. But the Wall Street Journal has already reassured art lovers to mention Sotheby's employee's the dry. He won't bring that cutthroat strategy to his newest acquisition rather, he's buying the auction house for art's sake. The journal says and art lover himself draw. He owns works by Picasso Matisse and Chagall and. His long admired the auction company, which was founded in London in seventeen forty four at least now draw he plans to hold onto Sotheby's for the long term and help it grow the first step. He intends to take these private ending. It's thirty one year stint on the new York Stock Exchange. The idea is that going private will help Sotheby's compete with its arch-rival Christie's Christie's is a private company also owned by a French businessman, the two companies often scrap over lucrative consignment deals to sell multi million dollar artworks in collectibles to seal those deals auction houses often discount their commissions, but as a privately, held business Christie's had more latitude to shave its commissions and make big deals than Sotheby's did since Sotheby's had to report those details to shareholders that latitude makes a difference over the last year. Both Christie's and Sotheby's have done well, booed by a healthy economy. But in absolute terms, Christie's fared better than Sotheby's by more than a half of a billion dollars. Christie's is seen as the winner in the art collection duopoly in part because it has captured some gasp worthy deals in 2017 it sold a rediscovered Leonardo Davinci painting for a record price of four hundred fifty million dollars. And last year it sold the art collection of Peggy and David Rockefeller for a record price as well. Eight hundred thirty five million dollars under draw. He's ownership Sotheby's should prove to be a more aggressive rival, and that won't just be an in-person auctions, but online as well. The company intends to expand on a strategy that already started boosting its digital sales are collectors still politely raised their hands at live auctions to bid on old masters, but more and more often younger art buyers are bidding online, Sotheby's soul, two hundred twenty million dollars worth. Of art online last year up twenty four percent from twenty seventeen the Wall Street Journal reported, it's too soon to know whether taking Southeby's private, and pushing online sales will help Sotheby's surged past Christie's or not. But one thing is clear Patrick draw. He is already proved himself to be artful at growing companies now. We'll see whether he'll be successful at painting, a new future for Southeby's.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Lieberman Govan And Israel discussed on Morning Edition

"Israel will hold elections again. It seemed like Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is certain to get a fourth consecutive term, when his party won elections last month. But then came a stunner, he failed to form a governing coalition at his call. Israel's parliament voted last night to hold unprecedented new elections on September, seventeenth NPR's Daniel estrin is on the line from Jerusalem, Daniel, you had a late night. I started. Hey all so Netanyahu failed to get what done. Exactly he failed to form a parliamentary majority. He needed just one more party to get on board. A right wing party led by former defence minister of ignore Lieberman and Lieberman wooden. Join Netanyahu got furious have listen to this. A victim Lieberman Govan at them up my pillow. The Hamilton shield. Now, said Lieberman is dragging the country to new elections. His conditions for joining the coalition were way too high. He wanted to conscripts ultra-orthodox Jews to the military. That's now is saying, but that's not really the main issue. The main issue here is that Netanyahu is probably about to be facing criminal charges for corruption, and he tried to build a coalition that would allow him to make some pretty dramatic moves. So a sitting prime minister cannot be indicted and to form a coalition that would help them. Do that was a really big ask and it just complicated all these negotiations. So when he couldn't form the government, he did something else. He pushed for new elections. He wanted to block the Israeli President from being able to pick someone else to form the government. This sounds fairly chaotic Daniel, what, what is the reaction like there? What are people saying it is? I think people are in shock. It's the first time this is ever happened in Israel to have elections. And then a month later to throw all that away to call new ones, and there were in the last few days. These threats of new elections. And but there was a sense that it was kind of this big game of chicken last second Tahu, this brilliant tactician, that everyone knew would figure out a way to get a majority and he didn't Netanyahu as you point out has had some scandals following him around. Is he expected to win the next round of elections or vulnerable? I think he's in a very vulnerable position. The last election was very close. And if some of his previous voters, this time around blame him for dragging the country to elections, again his party could lose votes and he does win again. It will be harder for him to form a government. He'll be even more desperate than this past round and his political or his potential coalition partners will will be even more demanding in what they want in return. So all of this political chaos could be signalling to us than Thanh with all of his legal troubles is no longer a strong figure that a majority of lawmakers or at least on the right wing are willing to rally around this is not just a shock for Israel. It's also surprise to the White House. President Trump is a close ally of Netanyahu's today, members of Trump's team, working on a Mideast peace deal are into Roussel has this them, right? Well, it could be a major blow. Jared Kushner, Jason green Blat landed in Jerusalem last night to advance their peace proposal. Seems like the worst possible timing the last time there were Isreaeli elections, the White House, delayed its peace plan that could happen again. And by the time you haven't Isreaeli government.

Israel Calls News Elections After Failing to Form a Government

"Israel will hold new elections in September after Benjamin Netanyahu failed to form a coalition in parliament. Now, you may remember that Israel had national elections in April, there was ultimate, which was a victory for mister Netanyahu's Likud party, but not a majority to find out what happened, I rang up, our Israel and Palestinian territories correspondent Felicia swertz in Jerusalem, so fully show, why did Mr Netanyahu failure? So he had ninety days since the April elections to cobble together a coalition his Likud party, only one thirty five seats to form a government, you need at least sixty one or at least a form of stable, government, you need at least sixty one and it's pretty common for these coalition negotiations to go down to the wire, but over the, the last few days, it became clear that he was at a major impasse with his former defense minister, AVI jor Lieberman, who heads. Secular small secular party with the large Russian base. In the end they couldn't bridge a gap on legislation that sets a quota for the number of ultra-orthodox men to be drafted into the military, so it really came down to these societal divides between religion and state. What happens next so Isreaeli will go back to the polls in September. They'll, they'll vote again. And then the same process that we just went through here. We'll happen again, which is the votes will be tallied the heads of each party. That wins seats in the Knesset the parliament will go to Israel's president recommend someone to have a chance of forming a government last time.

WhatsApp Security Flaw Could Allow Hackers To Install Spyware

"Platform, what's revealed a major security flaw that could have made it's one point five billion users vulnerable to hacks. The company announced that hackers targeted a flaw in WhatsApp software to gain access to users phones, the tools the hackers used reportedly bear resemblance to those developed by NS group in Israel, cyber firm that has been accused of providing tools to spy on journalists in human rights advocates. What's has not said if specific users were targeted or how many may have been compromised, Molly Roberts is an editorial writer covering technology and society for the Washington Post, and she's been covering the breach mulling nice to have you on the show. Thanks for having me. So what specifically were these hackers looking for? Well, it really depends on the government that was using the tools developed by initial group. But essentially what they were given access to. By just placing a call or video call to a WhatsApp number was the entirety of users phone, so they were given access to the microphone to the camera. And then from that they were able to take a look at a lot of it was on the device. So not only what that messages, and we're hearing that the attack has been linked to the NS group and Isreaeli cyber firm. What do we know about them? And why are people making that connection? So they're making that connection because the analysts have taken a look at this said that the aware has a similar digital footprint. What they've seen before from this group what we know is that this group was operating in secret until about twenty sixteen when their software was found on the phone of a now jailed human rights activist in the United Arab Emirates.

Nuclear diffusion: Iran

"Today marks a year since merica pulled out of the nuclear deal with Iran fair for I am announcing today that the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal. We will be instituting the highest level of economic sanction. The anniversary isn't passing without event. Iran has announced its own partial withdrawal from the nuclear deal today. Sean Joshi is economists defense editor that comes just days after the Americans moved an aircraft carrier into the Persian Gulf on the basis of intelligence of what they said were potential Iranian attacks on American forces, and Michael the US secretary of state has ten up on expectedly in Iraq, which is one of the main US Iran sites have competition the region, so it's all kicking off in the Middle East, and it's been a year since President Donald Trump withdrew America from the from the nuclear deal the. Me through again, why he chose to do that. And what the relations have been since the JCP was joint comprehensive plan of action. This was the fancy name given to the nuclear deal that Aram signed with six world powers back in two thousand fifteen to cap its nuclear program, which many people fit was racing towards a nuclear bomb in exchange for trade and economic relations with the west I've been doing deals for a long time. I've been making lots of wonderful deals. Great deals. That's what I do. Donald Trump said the Iran deal was the whist the will never ever ever in my life. Have I seen any transaction? So incompetently negotiated as our deal with Iran. And I mean, never he felt not only head given away too much to Iran. It allowed her on to keep the ability to enrich some uranium which is which is a potential pathway to a bomb it allowed Iran sanctions relief that Trump said it would spend on funding terrorism in the region. It didn't stop around from testing missiles, which could be used to cause havoc against the US in its Attallah is and ultimately the biggest complaint that Trump and his team had was that the deal didn't change Iran's approach to the region. It didn't change Iran's willingness to confront the United States confront Arab allies, the US and confront Israel. And for all of those reasons he decided I'm done with this deal. I'm gonna tear it up, and we're going to try bludgeoning rom into something more formidable something more constraining and exactly a year on ran has announced that it it self is going to start to ignore the deal which the significance of that. What exactly is undoing? Well, Sandra Hanni. Iran's president has said he will start doing two things on the real pressure from his hardliners who wanted to do this for a long time. One of them is that it will start building up stockpiles something called enriched uranium low enriched uranium, and that's one of the things that can ultimately help you make a bomb the nuclear deal capped, the amount that Iran could have and Rania saying, okay, we're going to break that cap. We're going to build up a little bit more beyond it. The second thing. He said he's doing is that he will start building up. Heavy water. Heavy water is a specific type of chemical that used in nuclear reactors that can ultimately make plutonium which is another way of building a bomb. So Ronnie is not saying we're gonna dash for a nuclear weapon, we're going to tear up the deal completely. He's being clever about this. He saying we'll break out of it. And reasonably limited ways challenging the Europeans to say, you really gonna tear up the deal for these steps. And so in in the context of there's also this movement of the aircraft carrier. You say it's it's all kind of kicking off. I mean is it. How much does this sort of stir the pot, and how much of this is just kind of sabre-rattling very hard to tell the US said, it has credible intelligence showing that Iran plan to attack US forces in US allies in the region using drones using proxy militia forces. Now, we don't know how good how solid that intelligence is some officials say they spotted wrong moving entire missiles on tops of boats, which perhaps they were preparing to use them. Happy will preparing to ready them. Other officials say, hey, look, it's not actually clear with this was preparation for an attack or just preparation for a contingency plan in case. Iran was attacked. I in other words, getting the stage ready for retaliation. So the intelligence is vague. And I think sent me in Europe among European diplomats and other parts of the world. There's a little bit of mistrust about American intentions, and the reliability of these American claims simply because America and the person who announced this movement of the carrier John Bolton is well known as a. Great hawk on Iran has been wanting to amplify pressure on Iran. So I think this some suspicion perhaps the administration may have played up the solidity of this intelligence in order to sort of rattler sabres, you say and false Iran to back down and couch into some kind of submission is is there a sense. Do you think that the the US is frustrated that even though it's pulled out of the deal? It's reimpose sanctions that around seems to be getting on. All right, the regime seem stable. I think it's the opposite. I think that they sniffing opportunity they see rom in economic crisis. They are convinced that the protests, they see even if the river economic issues are in fact, indications of seething discontent against the Talas. They see a region in which the Arab allies that Isreaeli allies role moving in lockstep all unified on the issue of confronting Iran. And I think they see opportunity to deliver lethal decisive blow to Iran force to it's knees force it to kind of give up everything it would not give up to Barrack Obama back in two thousand fifteen so. I think this is born of confidence some would say hubris not weakness, not not fair. How much of this is that America might want to change the terms find it difference Iran deal, and how much of it is just kind of the early stages of again regime change. Well, Joan Bolton has said when he announced the movement of Vinik carrier to the region, we don't want regime change and other officials have said that as well do people believe them, do you. No one knows. I'm not sure I do either. I think that the Americans said they don't want this. They said that it won't award but the conditions. They have demanded of your on Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state made a list of I think thirty also demands of Iran. This was kind of like a Austro-Hungarian ultimatum, right? It was a demand that people thought is. So extreme is so sweeping would necessitate such a dramatic change in everything that Iran does about its foreign policy and defence policy that it would never be accepted. And if American knows it's making demands it can't be. Accepted some people think is that just a pretext for justifying laying the groundwork for military action. No one really knows the answer to that. But I think the actions of the last few days the pathway, we're now on should make us all very worried about the prospect of military confrontation down the line. And so with that in mind, and this these these sabres being rattled, how do you think this will play out? I think we're looking at the end of the nuclear deal the rains have given Europe sixty days to say, look, you know, give us the economic benefits if this all will completely pull out in that. That's the end of it. I think Europeans have done the best. They can to try and protect their own trade with Iran from meddling American sanctions, they've tried to tell Iran you'll better off in this deal out, but has any is under pressure. From hotline is at home. He's he had his chumps the Americans shattered the deal in just the way that the supreme leader of Iran said they would. And so I don't think he has much political leeway to Lynn palm. I think the deal is going to die in sixty days. Once that happens. Iran will be under pressure to go back to where it was before. Twenty fifteen building up its nuclear infrastructure hinting that it's going to pursue its way to a bomb not at full speed. But but creeping its way there and challenging the Americans to do something about it. If if they if they we're going to be back in those very dunk troubling days of twenty eleven twenty twelve when the region looked like it was really on edge. Thank you very much for your time.

I also joined by my nephew piers, grandson creek Herman also in Denver. But most importantly, we are joined by author Jack Fischer who had partnered with National Geographic and put out this impasse tick. I call it a copy table book, really pay thing. Italy. Great conversation piece was so much talk about we've covered parts of the country. So far Jackie mentioned, the idea of these medieval hill towns, and boy for me, you really nailed it. Because that is really one of my biggest passions, especially in Italy and custody seeing these hill towns, especially the smaller ones that have maybe a little bit less tours. And some of the places that come to mind for me in the walkability of these right? You don't need a car get into the city walk around taste smell. Let your senses do the work. You know, Sienna what a wonderful walled city. I think it's one of the best preserved medieval cities in the world. And and I don't know if I'll pronounce correctly, but the city of tower them ten Jimmy John just amazing places are so walkable all with their own tastes and smells and flair. And things to check out but hands over to Chris Herman, I twenty five year old nephew and get some perspective from from a little bit younger voice here. Chris what what's on your mind? So I'm very curious about the culture and food of Sardinia. I've never really had the opportunity to go there as mentioned before only my only visit the Italy was Florence and pizza which is basically tourist stencil. But I'm really interested in how sort of location of Sardinia how it sort of has an effect on the difference tuned. That they are well known for their Jackie have any thoughts. I'm not. Dinya fairly remote. I mean, it's in the middle of the Mediterranean. Not all that close to Italy. And frankly, not all that close to France and not all that close to Spain. And so it's very mountainous. So the. Animal raising tends to be sheep. So you get pecker, you know, Romano despite its name it is actually start Indian cheese made with sheep's milk their local vegetables. I think the wild steno that grows on all the health hops mountainsides in the valleys ends up in a lot of dishes. So there's a recipe for chick pea fennel soup, which is very traditional. And of course, as you might imagine it Thailand. So there's a lot of food and clams whole fish. There's a recipe for frugal out almost like Isreaeli couscous pasta kind of round and chewy that is in a saffron broth along with little teeny clams that is a real taste of Sardinia. That sounds absolutely delicious. So I've actually been flipping through some pictures from the book, and I found this one that I think is pretty interesting. That's we'll get to our or get to the point of the differences between the flavors have different parts of Italy. But you haven't really cool sort of graphic with all the traditional Staples of the different areas of Italy sort of speak to sort of that how how it transitions from bread being the main sort of starch tabled down to pasta in the south. I mean, this is really dependent upon climate. And what grows where I mean? The other thing that's really different in Italy from especially if you think about Italy from north to south is. The level of wealth. Typically in northern Italy is I had about more economic growth and wider range of ingredients as opposed to southern Italy where it's been really quite poor. As you said, southern Italy is is the land of dried pasta, there isn't really fresh pasta made with eggs expert too precious in southern Italy to be putting them into pasta. And so it was the dried pasta with a flower in the water that we're familiar with along with all of the south. They're not using butter. There really isn't a lot of dairy. So there's not a lot of cheese, and certainly whatever they have. It's not going into butter traditionally, and so this is all based as opposed to in the north where there's a lot more variety of agriculture the Great Plains south. Of Milan west of Venice, where kinda raised wherever you say parmigiano reggiano the pastas, fresh eggs in it. There's a lot more meat in in the north. And there's a lot more bread baking traditionally in northern Italy. And so greater variety of offerings. The bakery. Yeah. That that that we are fantastic. Yeah. We are. We are talking with Bishop live on America's dunning travel guide about his new book coming out tasting Italy. We'd which is in cahoots if you will with National Geographic with certainly brings a fantastic addition photography, and and cultural impacts on this book. So it's a lot more than cookbook. Tell us about the book a little bit more. And how obviously you've got these fantastic recipes. But what else would would would have buyer gets checking out this book super book is actually divided into twenty chapters each on a region? So it tells you the story the history the local agriculture the wine that she's making photographs that bring that region to live, and then recipes that come from that region. So if you really wanna learn more about Sicily, for instance, there's a whole chapter with the three of which is fascinating to has been the crossroads of the Mediterranean at some point or their everybody ruled Sicily and less. They culinary imprint on the dishes. And so the book has as much for you to read curled up in a comfy chair by the fire and then go into kitchen and bring to life Italy in your own kitchen..

Its goal is to strengthen the alliance between the two countries often the big VIP's at the annual APEC conference in Washington are Isreaeli politicians, especially right now with the conference taking place just two weeks ahead of Israel's hotly contested elections. The world's Matthew bell reports from Washington. Israeli leaders have been flying here to speak to American audiences for a long time. Israel's first prime minister, David Ben Gurion came in nineteen fifty one three years after Israel fought its war of independence and Israelis still come to America to tell their story and seek support especially from American Jews a pack gives them a venue.

Strip of thoughts and prayers go out to the families whose home we're attacked by rocket this morning in his guns holds many of the same hawkish views as Netanyahu, but he tries to distinguish himself from the current prime minister in a couple of ways. No racist hitting our state institution. And there will be no corruption leading our way no corruption whatsoever. That's a reference to corruption charges facing that in Yahoo back home and the prime minister's decision to cut a deal with the fringe right wing party, a pack itself described the party as racist. And reprehensible in some ways, his speech at APEC was a critical part of his election. Campaign revenge Hussan is political scientists from Hebrew University in Jerusalem, he flew over for the conference. He was an unknown quantity here. Everybody knew his name because they'd read about him, but they'd never seen him perform. And I think he came here, and he met everyone's expectations has on says that speech will play well for God's with his Rayleigh voters. The fact that he was accepted, well here sort of calms a lot of centre left voters that if we vote for this guy, he's not a ROY. Rookie on the international stage and the American Jewish community doesn't know him from Adam when we have to admit it, even if you dislike Netanyahu and dislike policies when it comes to handling Israeli politics on the world stage. There's nobody like him many Israelis do dislike Netanyahu and his policies. Stab show. Fear is one of them. And that's a big part of her message to Americans here at the APEC conference in the news. They most stay with Netanyahu is doing, but they don't see the majority of Israel is support a two state sedition majority of Israel wants a separation of religion state, and they want gay marriage to be legal, and that's the majority of my country. And I and I want to represent their voices and show them show the beautiful face of Israel. That message certainly goes over well with many Jewish voters in this country who still vote for Democrats overwhelmingly, but SHA fear who's a member of Israel's Knesset with the labor party. So. Says the story of strong US Israel connection has been more difficult to sell to the American public probably for the first time since its very beginning. Disconnection it's being on their Andrew threats, and that should be fixed and very quickly because Israel and America has always been the closest allies and should always be that anxiety about the rocky state of Israel's relationship with the US, especially with the American Jewish community is shared by many.

"We're going to refer to Vincent tonight only as far as I know as young Vince. And because he will soon be twenty one not the you'll be young. I know that kids. That's one thing about ages. You're never going to catch up with me. You know, I'm always gonna have you're always going to be a onion thirty four thirty five years on you. So so that's just how it works. But you've been you've been bringing us say story from the this was the New York Times. Yes. Yeah. New York Times titled Senate passes Bill that rebukes Trump and opposes Isreaeli boycott. So why don't you bring us up to date on what we've we've only gone into this thing a couple of paragraphs, basically, the Senate overwhelmingly approving seven to twenty three. Yeah. That's pretty much overwhelming a Middle East policy on Tuesday. That included a rebuke to President Trump over his wealth drawl of troops from Syria and Afghanistan and a contested measure to allow state and municipal governments to punish companies the boycott divest from or place sanctions on Israel. That's brings us back to speed where we at now. So they have a quote from Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the majority leader this misrepresents for broad consensus of his body about our nation's responsibilities as an ally and a partner Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. The majority leader said on Tuesday. But filleted inclusions of the anti boycott divestment sanction were anti Beatty s provisions and an amendment by Mr. McConnell reproaching, the president for a quote precipitous withdrawal of troops from Syria and Afghanistan raise some concerns in both parties the measure opposing v. Israel, boycott drafted by senators Marco Rubio, Republican of Florida, and Joe Manchin, the third the third democrat of West Virginia appeared to be calculated in part to drive a wedge between Israel supporters in the upper echelon of a democrat party and a younger activists wing more willing to challenge the unconditional American support of a Jewish state. Senate Democrats mulling. In presidential runs. Recoiled at v McConnell amendments making a rare alliance with Mr. Trump has declared. It was time for American troops to come home from Afghanistan, the longest war invitations history. Oh my God. So. The AP thought it was a headline that Trump said nineteen years instead of eighteen years that we've been in Afghanistan. That was the big problem with the statement. Oh my God. Yeah. They were like, we fact check the state of the union address. And it was the headline you like Trump misstates saturates exaggerate wouldn't year. Trump exaggerates length of f of US Afghan involvement. It's like, bro. Nineteen years. It's been eighteen years as well within the margin. Sorry. In the short of it is we've been over there. Of fighting a war on terror. I guess we've been there so long that I have children I have. Seven of eight children have never known a world where we were not bombing Afghanistan. Can you imagine that? And I don't know how many people ever really think of it in terms that there's a whole generation becoming out year old. She's a senior in high school, and she has never known a world where we were not bombing Afghanistan, right? The point is do you want a world where your children are raised? But God help us maybe from cradle to grave with your country. Never having a period of peace, and I get that coming from a veteran. I mean, I was I was in the military. Wars are not good things. We should not seek these things out, and we found one in two thousand one that it just keeps keeps on giving given a given. And remember remember what Eisenhower said beware the military industrial complex. He got snowed by them. While he was while he was in office. That's why is he was warning the people on his way out like look, these people duped me, and this is what they're gonna do to the American public. If you aren't careful and the American public was like look at the squirrel. Well, a lot of people. It was it's empties things were rather idealistic. We had Ike United Nations. Right. War is illegal. Yeah. Absolutely. Everything was gonna it was gonna be a better world. And you got a bunch of people. You've got a bunch of people in power with a lot of money sitting there gone, but that just doesn't really sound very profitable. And we might need to remind need to tweak US foreign policy just a little bit. That's another reason I'm convinced that part of the American government is so supportive of Israel is because it creates a permanent welfare warfare state you create. So like when you saw every everyone that scene economic hitman, you know, where they go in, and they you know, they create problems, and then they give them aid. And then the aid creates a permanent welfare state because the aid creates debt which creates oh, we're just to take your resources, and now you're a permanent now our taxpayers and our country will. Send you aid every year, and you're just a permanent welfare state Israel is a permanent welfare state as well. Even though they've got like the sixth largest economy in the world, and they're like the third largest weapons manufacturers in the world. We still send them billions of dollars a year in what they call surplus weapons. Right. And we send them billions of dollars of year. That connected to the money is we have to spend at least this much of this money on weapons from companies in the US, right? It's just it's corporate welfare is the Israeli Palestinian conflict exists, right? It is a permanent source of corporate welfare. It doesn't matter. If America is at peace. We will always always have this permanent little spot where Lockheed and Boeing can make a few dollars and now out of business. You got to look at the Pentagon budgets. You got to look at that. You can't look at the Pentagon. You can't see you cannot see where the money goes. Because this is all hidden. This is things that we can't talk about. We can't we've for the first time they allowed us to audit. The Pentagon you could that well one trillion dollars. They couldn't find they couldn't figure out where it went twenty one trillion dollars. I mean, they're pay twenty one thousand dollars for a frigging toilet seat. I know I mean, I'll share one story. I was in the military. I worked in communications, and we had one very expensive piece of equipment. It was rack based rack mounted. And I can't tell you what it did. But it was. Pretty fricking cool for this time. This is the early eighties. If I we needed to order, another one of those it was almost two million dollars for this one rack of equipment. So we had some planned expansions. And we were gonna put in another cabinet. We were going to populate. Again, it was just going to be an empty rack. And we checked into the price to see how much that would be. It would be almost two billion two million dollars. So whether the cabinet came full of very expensive equipment, or it came empty rack meaning made out of nothing but sheets of metal. It was the same price in the US. Government was happy to pay for it. Eight fifty five or fifty free money. It was a call. Let us know what you think retake live. Tired of missing trade sorry to missing.

"And I'm told that for the fencing portion of this you're looking at more combat engineers, they could possibly be sent. And also homeland security's were being more medical units as well, of course, to children died along the border in the custody of US officials. So they need a digital help and also aviation units to provide surveillance along the border. So they're gonna have to make some decisions pretty quickly. Because again, the deployment wraps up at the end of the month. Right. And this this is an addition to the yesterday pirority sent down there to manage the so-called caravan of migrants, right? That's right. So it's also happening obviously during a partial government shutdown. So where are they going to get the money for this? Is this coming out of the? Pentagon's previous budget. They're getting it from the Pentagon budget. And also the Pentagon has not shut down. They're still they're still working as we see along the border. So yeah, there's some grumbling about this at the Pentagon. It's a waste of money. Or this is not what you use active duty troops for this is generally a national guard mission, so privately there is some grumbling about this. But they say, listen, this is a legal order from the president will carry it out. You mentioned decisions are going to have to be made soon. Do we have any idea at this point? When when we could see troops there on the border, actually, reinforcing fencing. Well, I don't have a sense of exactly when they're going to start this mission. But I'm told a could take several months, and this is you know, it's a talking about a lot of mileage here. So this could you know require a substantial and Munnetra one official told me a few thousand troops, perhaps another said, well, the current troops there. Could at least start this effort as you bring more troops in. But at this point, I know the Pentagon is working on this planning this, and we don't have any specifics on it right yet. NPR pentagon? Correspondent Tom Bowman for us this morning, Tom. Thanks. Appreciate it. Okay. You're welcome. Right next. We're gonna turn to Israel where thousands of new homes for Isreaeli settlers are being planned in the occupied West Bank, most countries denounce Isreaeli settlements because they're spread out across land that Palestinians demand for their own state. The Trump administration has been tolerant though of Isreaeli settlements..
