Fresh update on "jerusalem" discussed on Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day
"It's merriam Webster's word of the day for November 28th. I haven't really woken up. Oh, until I've had my McDonald's breakfast deal and I know this is true because before breakfast, I put my phone in the refrigerator and couldn't find the keys that were already in my hand. Nothing gets the morning going like the first sip of it iced coffee. Get any size in any flavor for 99 cents until 11 a.m.. Price and participation may vary. McDonald's, I'm loving it today's word is minora, spelled MEN OR, AH minora is a noun. That means a candelabra with 7 or 9 lights that is used in Jewish worship. Here's the word used in a sentence from ABC 7 in New York. The world's largest menorah went up in Manhattan on Tuesday and will be lit on Thursday after sundown. In English the word menorah was originally the name for the 7 branched candelabra used in Jewish worship. The 9 branched Hanukkah candelabra is called hanakia in Hebrew, but English speakers came to use minora for this one, too. The Hanukkah menorah recalls expulsion by Judah maccabee of invading forces from the temple of Jerusalem. Macabre and his followers sought oil for the temple's menorah, so that the sanctuary could be rededicated, but they found only enough oil for a single day. Miraculously, that tiny amount of oil burned for 8 days until a new supply could be obtained..
"jerusalem" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"You're listening to Bloomberg opinion on Bloomberg radio I'm June grosso The Biden administration is considering reopening the U.S. consulate in east Jerusalem which would serve Palestinians in the West Bank In his latest piece for Bloomberg opinion author and columnist zev shavitz says the move could lead to a clash in Washington He joins me now So explain what the U.S. consulate in east Jerusalem stands for The Jerusalem consulate was originally founded in 1824 to when there was no Easter west Jerusalem It was just the old city And its job was to look out for American interests with the most church interest in Jerusalem In 1949 the jordanians captured the eastern part of Jerusalem in the next few Jordan And the U.S. had an embassy in Jordan in Amman and had put a council at injury in 1967 after Israel conquered Jerusalem in subsequently the next day The conflict in east Jerusalem dealt with Palestinian affairs primarily and there was a conflict in Westeros and a U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv Under president Trump America moved the embassies and the council to Jerusalem And it closed the consulate in east Jerusalem That is to say el Jerusalem And that's the genesis of that council So President Biden has a different take than president Trump on this He wants to reopen the consulate in east Jerusalem What's been the reaction to that Well the reaction in Israel's official reaction is completely negative The Israel government wants to make it clear that Jerusalem is one dividable city and that it's the capital of Israel The American government thinks that I believe it thinks that Jerusalem could be part of the Palestinian state Ever is such a state And that's the disagreement The problem that I pointed to in my column is a political problem largely which is that Israelis understand that the Biden administration wants to undo as much of the Trump policies here as it can But on the other hand there's a wall to wall virtually a long wall support for keeping Jerusalem in letting any thing that might either be interfere with that happen which includes the confluence in east Jerusalem And therefore what I wrote in the column and what I believe is that whether it's a good idea or a bad idea on some higher level on the political it's impossible It knows where the government could possibly give back permission to account for the Palestinian oriented consulate in east Jerusalem And so it won't happen The U.S. needs the consent of Israel According to the State Department it does And certainly according to the Israeli it's a little more certified or assigned to the conflict in east Jerusalem The Senate as far as the Senate is concerned are both Republican senators and democratic senators of the same mind well they've been there was a letter of I think 200 or slightly more Republican Congress members asserting that those positions correct is correct I don't know about the Senate I assume that there will be a similar number of Republicans in the Senate and support Israel's position As far as Democrats are concerned it's interesting I don't know the answer to that There are certainly many Democrats in both the House and the Senate who I believe will have a very hard time trying to force Israel to accept a consulate that it doesn't want In its capital city But I don't have a vote count yet because it has a signature count because as far as I know that one hasn't taken place in the democratic House and Senate or for that matter in the Republican sense And so the prime minister of Israel is sort of counting on the fact that Joe Biden doesn't want to add this challenge to the many international challenges he already has Yeah I think that's fair to say We're putting in a different way The United States foreign policy now is confronting a lot of issues starting with China And the Russian buildup now on the Ukraine border The Iranian nuclear negotiations which seem to be solved And on and on It's a very big agenda of things which are truly American major American interests And I think that to the United States while they would like to have that consulate and while they would like to do some peacemaking if possible the Israel Palestine question it's quite far down on their agenda For Israel it's at the very top of the very top of its agenda And that's why I think there's a power disparity Surviving some nice thing to do And for better it's absolutely essential for premise to benefit Absolutely essential for his political survival and the survival of the government or in fact any future government in Israel So then there's no contest There's not going to be an east Jerusalem consulate I don't think so I mean the United States can certainly pressure Israel into doing many things because Israel is a client virtually acquired state of the United States in many ways And America's Israel's biggest friend and Israel is a recipient of a great deal of American support All of that is true And on most issues any Israeli government would be very attentive to the requests of the U.S. but on this particular issue on the issue of Jerusalem even Israeli prime minister were to want to do that He wouldn't be able to politically So it's sort of a more point whereas if Biden doesn't get his way on this I don't think that anything will happen politically There'll be some disappointed diplomats in the State Department I imagine but beyond that I don't think it's really a major issue for him Thanks uh That's a chauvet author and columnist for Bloomberg opinion Coming up on Bloomberg opinion is the world really safe from killer asteroids That's next on Bloomberg opinion On June grosso and this is Bloomberg But I know about streaming only on peacock Joining the first day of school and one of these four made up my last 5 and two detention I think he's breathing You.

Eric Describes the Funniest Story From His New Book 'Is Atheism Dead?'
"There are a lot of funny stories in the book. And usually when I do interviews, I don't get to tell these stories. I've got a glance over the top. But you just asked me about one of my favorites. I mean, I can't tell you how much joy I just laugh every time I think about it. But this was the discovery in 1979 of what's called the silver ketef scrolls. And what that means is these are incredibly tiny silver scrolls that were so tiny they were worn as amulets. And they had the priestly blessing the ironic blessing where the priests would say the lord bless you and keep you the lord make his countenance to shine upon you and give you peace. I mean, this holy thing from the scripture of written in silver in really Proto hebraic because this is from 6 50 BC. Anyway, but how was it found? Yes. I, if you read books and archeology, it'll sort of tell you, oh, this was discovered here here by so and so and so and so I was okay. But somehow, in my research, because I have fun doing the research, I discovered this weird backstory. And the more I dug the funnier it became. Yeah. Okay, here's the story. The guy whose last name, oh gosh, what is it? It's Barack. I can never say his name. It's the book here. But anyway, it's not Jacobs. No, it's a 28 year old. It's a 28 year old guy studying archeology in a Tel Aviv, or Jerusalem. So he's a nobody. He's 6 years from his PhD, but he gets this idea in his head that below Saint Andrew's church outside just right at the outset skirts of Jerusalem. There are some old caves and burial caves, whatever. They've all, they looked like they've been excavated. There's nothing there, but he has a hunch that there's more to be found there. But he doesn't have any credibility or anything to get real archeological students to help him. So he has to be really humble and say, you know, I'll take anybody who can help me. Gabriel barques Gabriel bark, I think it's barkai, barkey. He has to go and this is like a joke. So archeology club, 12 and 13 year olds. They volunteer the kids, the kids can help you. So how'd you like 12 and 13 year olds annoying 12 and 13 year olds to help you on this big dig? So they do the dig, they find nothing. He's disappointed, and he says, well, you know what? At least to we've got a photograph, all these chambers, even though we found nothing, there was one kid that was so annoying to this barkai that barkey was like ripping his hair out and he says, I can't take another minute of this annoying 12 year old named Nathan. So here's what I'm going to do. All of these caves need to be photographed. The most distant one or one of the distant ones and over cave 25, he sends Nathan there, and he's really stern with him, like angry, like, hey, I've had enough out of you. I want you to clean that chamber. It's gonna be photographed. I want it to be so clean that your mother could use it as a kitchen. Like you really threatens the kid because this kid was very annoying. So Nathan trundles off to this distant place. And the joy, of course, is that it's far away, and we're not going to hear from this kid for two or three hours while he's doing what we do. But he takes a hammer with them, which is a weird thing, nobody knows. But the kid is so annoying that to go clean the cave, he just happens to hide a hammer on his person. And when he's bored in this sacred chamber, okay? There's nothing there. It's got a stone floor, whatever. He takes the hammer out. Nobody knows this, okay? He's all alone and starts smashing the floor with the hammer. Now this alone, I find it funny. The only reason he's there is because he was so annoying, they sent him as far away as possible. But if he wasn't annoying enough, he had a hammer with him and decides to use the hammer to smash the floor. The board Nathan smashes the floor with the hammer so hard that it cracks. It wasn't supposed to crack. And he finds a hidden chamber. He sticks his hand in the hidden chamber and is dragged into the bowels of hell itself. Just kidding. He puts his hand into hidden chamber and he pulls out some stuff, some like little ceramics. He now is like, hey, this is what I'm here for. I'm not here to clean. I found treasure. So he runs to barkai and tugs on his shirt. He's like, hey hey, look what I found. You could see bark. I could picture his hair standing on end, like what is going on? The annoying kid is back with some ancient treasure. So they run back to the place, barkai sees that, what do you assumed was an empty place was in fact hiding this stuff and the annoying kid was so annoying that he smashed the floor open or whatever. So he sends the kid home and they spend days now excavating the secret whole and they pull out treasure after treasure and the greatest treasure is what we described. And unbelievably tiny silver scroll so delicate that they couldn't unwrap it for three years. They didn't know how to have the technology without destroying it. But they could read the words inscribed in silver. Now if it's inscribed on anything but silver, it doesn't last. So the Dead Sea scrolls, which are amazingly old, they're not this old. This is even older. So this is the first extant writing from the Hebrew scriptures ever discovered thanks to the annoying 12 year old Nathan. He's probably in his mid 50s right now and he doesn't know. And when he's

Donald Trump Deserves a Nobel Peace Prize for the Abraham Accords
"Question. I wanna ask you and you can go anywhere you want. But when people talk about the abraham accords. I'm not sure. I understand the significance of that. I haven't heard much about it. Tell us what's your perspective on that. What did trump achieve anything. Well the media did a terrible job covering most important storage game. Changing set of arab-israeli peace agreements in a generation re literally have not had an arab-israeli peace accord in twenty five years We've only had two prior egypt and jordan and president trump who was told by everybody in the peace industry in washington. You'll make the middle east worse you'll never make peace. You don't know what you're doing. You're a moron. And yet he accomplished four arab israeli peace agreements plus an agreement between kozo a muslim majority but non arab country and israel. It's extraordinary what trump pulled out and eric. You know this about me. In sixteen i was a sharp critic of trump. i would've considered myself a never-trumper. But i did would always know whether never-trumper did i said. Okay i have these deep concerns about him but let's let's pray for him every day and let's see how he how how he does. When i sat with them in the oval office a scene described in this book. I told him that. I'd been a never-trumper now eric. You know the man. How often does the term never-trumper get used with mr trump in his presence particularly in the oval office because judging from the looking at his is not that often. But i said to him. Listen i didn't believe your promises. I didn't trust you. But i've been stunned by what you've accomplished and i began rattling these things off. Let's just take a few right. The abraham accord had not yet happened. But we were trending there. It was clear to me that he was going to be able to pull these things off. Four arab-israeli agreements. Okay plus destroying the isis kathy. Liberating five million christians and muslims and yazidi from the reign of terror of isis taking out the isis terror. Commander abu bacher all-body taking out the top iranian terror general qasim sulamani ripping up the iran nuclear deal of imposing a maximum pressure sanctions campaign against iran. Moving the us embassy from talbot to jerusalem recognizing israel sovereign rights over the golan heights. And i could go on. And on as i do in enemies and is i believe. Trump deserves a nobel peace prize for the abraham accords. I doubt that he's going to get it. But if you don't win a nobel peace prize for creating peace with four arab countries and israel. What's the price
Should Teens Be Allowed to Drink at Home?
"Would love to hear your thoughts on parents. Condoning teenage drinking and allowing teenagers to drink with them in their home or on vacation in countries that do not have a drinking age. Thank you so much. What do you think about this. I think it's a great latter rain. What do you think like. Where are you on this because this is something that you know. Reasonable people disagree strongly on this one. Yeah no it. Brought me back to anna maria and my my friend in jerusalem and i it just has always stayed with me. I wasn't apparent at the time. But i always thought to myself when i have kids and i get to that stage. I want them to have a glass of wine with me and experience it and it not to be taboo. Because that's when i feel like people go kids go crazy. I think a lot of people are of that mind and actually. I was raised that way that you know having a sip of wine you know my parents wine if we were having dinner Little champagne if they were celebrating. Something was how. I grew up You know and i was still around plenty of highschool drinking and You know. I took a pretty low key approach to in college and i think you know sort of as not as a psychologist but personally i'm like yeah you know. I think we do a lot of work for me. I'm sorta worked for my kids. I think we couldn't vienna perspective So the truth on this one. Rena as far as i've come to understand. It is a psychologist is. You can actually go either way. Like i don't have a strong feeling like you know if have a strong feeling about something. I'll say it. I feel like parents can get this right either by. I'm gonna use finger quotes allowing drinking. You know not finger selena by either by allowing drinking in their home with their underage child or they can get it right by saying no. You know the way the law's set up as you're really not supposed to drink till you're twenty one And we're gonna stick with that what matters to me. Is the conversations get wrapped around it to me. It's much less important. You know what the rule is. It's much more important to me that the parent take advantage of whatever rule they make to have broader conversations about an alcohol in that kid's life.
"jerusalem" Discussed on The Bible in a Year
"And in the days of those kings the god of heaven will set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed nor shall its sovereignty. Be left to another people it shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end and it shall stand forever just as you saw that a stone was cut from mountain by no human hand and that it broke in pieces the iron the bronze the clay the silver and the gold. A great god has made known to the king what shall be hereafter. The dream is certain. And its interpretation. Sure daniel and his friends promoted then king. Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face and did homage to daniel and commanded that an offering an incense be offered up to him the kings daniel. Truly your god is god of gods and lord of kings and to reveal mysteries for you have been able to reveal this mystery. Then the king gave daniel high honors and many great gifts and made him ruler over the whole province of babylon and chief prefect. Over all the wise men of babylon daniel made a request of the king and he appointed shadrack meshack and abednego over the affairs of the province of babylon but daniel remained. At the king's court. The book of proverbs chapter fifteen versus twenty five through twenty eight the lord tears down the house of the proud but maintains the widows boundaries. The thoughts of the wicked are an abomination to the lord. The words of the pure are pleasing to him. He who is greedy for unjust gained makes trouble for his household but he hates. Bribes will live. The mind of the righteous ponders how to answer but the mouth of the wicked pours out. Evil things father in heaven. We thank you so much. We praise and glory and lord.

Sen. Cotton Responds to News of Saudi Arabia and Iran Military Coalition
"The Jerusalem Post this is breaking Saudi Arabia has signed some kind of joint military cooperation agreement, which with Russia And Iran and Russia. Uh, are are going to be involved soon in a, uh Joint military exercises, and this is just the beginning. I think I even think in our own hemisphere south of the border of some of these Communist regime stick around when some of the others I think we're going to see this spread. So much of what we've done under both parties over more than half a century. Um, to establish our Our strength. Has just thought that it's so much of it is just melted away. I'd be curious of your of your opinion. I'm afraid you're right, Mark. You know what's happening now It's just a continuation of what happened in the Obama Biden there now that it's the Biden era, Russia had been a peripheral player in Middle East if a player at all since 1973 when Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger help eject them from Middle East, and Obama basically invited invited him back in after the Syrian Red Line fiasco when he refused to enforce his own red line. And now you've got countries like Saudi Arabia, longstanding partner of the United States, who see what's happened with Joe Biden's bug out in Afghanistan were abandoning not just Afghans who helped us but even our own citizens, and they think they need to start cutting side deals to protect their own interests. You know, some people compared what's happened over the last week in Afghanistan. Having decided on in 1975. And remember what happened. Saigon in 1975 small foretaste of what Lay ahead, Laos and Cambodia fell almost immediately. You had the horrors of Paul Pot, then become a rouge. Cuba is sending shock troops all over the All over Latin America and Africa as well. Russia invaded Afghanistan. Um, so for years that reverberated. I'm afraid that Joe Biden's impotence and incompetence in Afghanistan will reverberate for years to come

Walk With Little Amal, a Theatrical Journey Celebrating the Refugee Experience
"Among muniz. Irby i was born in east jerusalem and a tough part of town between between the neighborhood and the shafat refugee camp. I'll mix child that means. My mother is jewish and my father's palestinian so the refugee experience runs very deep in the dna of the family. When my jewish grandparents were fleeing europe because of world war two. They came to palestine and drove the other part of my family into exile. When i was fourteen. I stumbled by accident into a theater show and this rough part of town and i fell in love. I fell in love with a reality that was being created in front of me reality. That was full of possibilities. That was wilder was free. A reality that was an opposite contrast of the harsh reality we were living in and i became a theatre. Practitioner becoming a theatre. Practitioner and palestine is like conjuring water in the desert. We don't have the infrastructure. We don't have the big artistic institutions. What we do have is a need and something to say about the world. We live in taking my shows to communities in refugee camps in palestine. I was always struck by the immediacy of the encounter and that became a very powerful experience for me in two thousand fifteen at the height of the refugee crisis when hundreds of thousands of people were walking across europe with all the pain and the anguish that we saw. I started thinking that maybe we need to create a new model of theater. Maybe we need to take our theater out of the theaters and into the streets. The streets where these people were walking. And i started working with good sean theater company Company that creates theater about the refugee experience together. We created the walk. The walk is a rolling arts festival. That will cross eight thousand kilometers sixty five cities towns and villages in its way and we will create one hundred twenty events of welcome.
What Is Western Civilization and Is It Better Than Other Civilization Projects?
"Us through first of all what is western civilization. Thank you charlie. Thanks turning point for having me ny. I'd be remiss if i didn't also thanked charlie to being a newsweek columnist. So thank you for that and yeah great to be here. You know got dinner last night. We were joking about how we can possibly talk about how to save the west thirty minutes. So let's kind of dive writer and get right to the point here. So leo strauss famously defined western civilization kind of the ever existing tension between jerusalem anathemas between the bible and between kind of greco. Roman reason if you will. I think that's a good place to start a research fellow at the edmund burke foundation. Which is your arm zones. think tank. It's a home for kind of national conservatism. And we think of the nation state. The nation state is being directly derived from the hebrew. Bible actually the tribes of israel themselves going to be the original the og nation state. If will so. I think just recovering a sense of biblical identity and the importance of the nation state. In contrast to globalism in contrast to all sorts of utopian global ideals is a good place to start so it starts with the bible truths jerusalem athens and then obviously rome as well. Which is you.

And again things that you remember orange buckets arriving by the truckload. And I turned to one of the guys who were emergency crews who was next to it says that we're guiding us through the site. And I said what are the buckets for? And he said body parts. I know it. Yeah. And it was just like oh my God. And that's the aim for these people. And again you know you just think about each one of those buckets is a body or a person and it's a family and that's a life. The worst pieces of somebody are part of somebody. Yeah if you're lucky man. And so you take that with you. And then Jerusalem was a really tough geek way for a while. I mean I remember I think there's like 6 or 7 suicide bombings in one month.

But you don't know what that's like unless you're living there. Well you know I was living there and I am living there but I didn't see it up close. I had I had this tremendous I don't know what streak of luck that a lot of these things went off the day after I had been like right there. Right. It's terrifying. But you saw an Italian from the inside. You were at the tongue do you want to talk about that? For some reason we were the first cruise air and others had taken a long time to follow. And we managed to actually get inside the ballroom with this happen because it was to say to me of a Passover if people remember this and it was at that seaside hotel in natanya. And we were actually doing live shots walking through this ballroom that what had happened is because of the force of the explosion it set off the fire alarms. So the rumored flooded to the extent. And so basically we were sloshing around a mixture of water and blood and brains and flesh and everything that was like that was left over from the suicide bombing. There were bits of people skull still embedded. In the ceiling above us it was always left of it. And what had happened and this is what happens in television is that the producers in New York and D.C. though we saw the live shot that we had done for one of the early morning shows and the producers and donate this wrong way it's just how we talk and that's great TV. And TV horrendous but I know what you mean. Let's do it again. And so I had to do this thing over and over and over again walking through the blood. And like just every hour almost don't stop. And you know you kind of leave that thinking what the hell am I doing? Exactly. What that life I did with titania is that it actually for the first time on live television showed the world

Right he does It happened It's an relation And it's more concerned about what the palestinians are doing and reactions this now And so what. We've seen in like. I said there is a big context behind this. On the first day of ramadan the israeli forces had not violently like this. But they've shoved. They shut off loudspeakers and the reason why they did that or they. They said the reason why they did. That was not to disturb a service ongoing for occupation. So who had been killed at the nearby western wall on so basically they didn't you know. Jewish israelis didn't want to have to hear palestinians the cold to prayer for instance or the imams later on in the night Would disturb them too much and they i. it's not like they consulted the palestinians. They just did this because they decided to do it. Then on top of that they place barriers. A an area called the damascus gates or babylon mood Which enter it's an entrance to the old city and For the damascus gate than you have these sort of our reporters they call it inside. The old city Where palestinian businesses in homes are. They cut they basically barricaded it off. place these barricades around restricted. Who could come into the old city who could go to the al aqsa mosque and were messing with people. So from the very first day of ramadan palestinians ended up going into Cold clashes right You know reacting to the israelis protesting and then the israeli would bring in Their riot police. On horseback the water cannons these dunk quarter cannons use. Their tear gas used their rubber bullets. And even live ammunition in some cases was reported to and just beat the hell out of everyone and then on top of that. We have the on case ongoing case right now of a shift shadow which is a which is a village in side of east jerusalem a End in in the case of ships yada. The israelis are attempting to ethnically cleanse twenty eight palestinian families from the area amounting to five hundred and fifty people.

Way and the deal itself understand but that doesn't even discuss the legal standing in general that the un has always maintained is a crime. You're these are illegal. Occupiers that are continuing to displace people for multiple times in a row. Can you touch on that. In general i mean maybe just the idea of why that's illegal and again what baffles me.

There's this one story about the Pentagon Chinese military units training with a set missiles, I mean by Bill Gertz over at the free beacon. You backbenchers. You may want to cover that. Well, here's what I want to talk about. This is from the Jerusalem Post. Israeli attacks on Iranian targets in Syria. This week triggered a public public censure from Moscow today with the Russian foreign ministry calling on Israel to stop its, quote, arbitrary unquote attacks in Syria. So in other words, Russia is now aligning with Iran. We of course, are going to be withdrawing our forces. I'm telling you now. If these things happen the way, I'm hearing them. There is going to be a major war in the Middle East. I don't want it in the least. But Russia is now flexing its muscles. Because it knows that we're leaving. And it's alliance with Iran is now really out of the closet. They downplay. They've built an alliance with Iran, obviously, Syria is a puppet state. And they've built an alliance with Turkey. This is very very dangerous quite the hell is the Middle East had to do. I don't know. Maybe you're familiar with nine eleven. World War, Two what the hell is Japan have to do with us. I don't know. Maybe. Now, you're familiar with Pearl Harbor. See most wars don't begin in Wyoming. It's an amazing thing. Most wars don't belong began in the continental United States. A begin thousands of miles away. And in many cases, we are the target or the eventual target. That's why you deal with them over there. Were there and not in New York City, Washington DC or other places, quote, the practice of arbitrary strikes on the territory of a sovereign state. In this case, we're talking about Syria should be ruled out far ministry. Spokeswoman Marie soccer Rava said an answer to a question from Russia. News agency, toss recent Israeli airstrikes on Syria now toss would be like MSNBC or CNN during the Obama administration. Feeding them planted questions or one liners. She said such strikes, and by the way, isn't this curious from a nation that annexed Crimea from a nation that is still trying to destroy the Ukraine premonition that annexed half of Georgia and has its designs on eastern eastern European countries. To isn't this precious coming from the fascist pigs that run Russia. What's wrong with you a lot? She said such strikes added to tensions in the region. Now, she may not be aware there are tensions in the region. Something she said was not in the long-term interests of any country there, including Israel. Well, that's that's wait. So Russia will now tell Israel what's in its best interests. We should never allow Syria which is suffered years of armed conflict to be turned into an arena where geopolitical scores are settled she said. These comments follow pre dawn Israeli retaliatory raid in Syria on Monday that the British based Syrian observatory for human rights said killed twenty one people twelve of them to believe believed to be members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard corps. I think what Russia's upset about is that the Israelis were right on target. That raid which reportedly targeted thirty eight sites following around launching of a missile on Sunday toward Mount Hermon. That was intercepted by an iron dome battery. Let's see missile launch was in response to an unusual Isreaeli daylight missile attack on Iranian targets in Syria, which Israel immediately took responsibility for hey, don't shoot your damn missiles towards us. We may blow away thirty eight of your sites. The Russians have been active militarily in Syria since October twenty fifteen thank you. Bama.

"It's also a plant believe it or not the shows great promise for production of ethanol I believe that an acre of Jerusalem, artichokes, apparently produces five hundred gallons of alcohol, which is double the amount produced by either corn or sugar beets. And yet corn and sugar. Beets are the commercial crops that are grown specifically for that purpose. Yeah. So it's a plant that more research is definitely happening on for a variety of uses. Yeah. And if you're interested like, I am in the edible aspects of this plant. I have to say it's incredibly versatile, you can make pickles from it. You can use it graded instead of carrots in. Cake you can use it as the basis of souffle, you can use it in a grotto with cheese and cream and believe me. I have so many still that I am just experimenting with Jerusalem artichoke recipes like crazy, heavy done, a cocktail. You know, you know, as soon as I said that I'm going to ask me about a cocktail. I have not. And I don't know how I would do that. But maybe I could try juicing them or maybe I could try making a wine out of them. That's. Yeah, I've make baked chips out of them. I've also dried them and made a flower. There's tons of stuff you can do with them. And I haven't played with the cocktail idea yet. But I think I will have to now are there other parts of this plant that are edible? Or is it just the tubers? It's just the tubers that are edible. But the other parts of the plants are really important for identifying the plant and there's a ton of sunflowers out there. There's a lot of yellow composite flowers. So if you want to know for sure that you've got to Jerusalem artichoke here, the things that you look for okay? The center of the flower will never be all black or all Brown, like a black eyed Susan it'll be some yellow and a little bit of Brown in there. The leaf stems which we call the Petiot will be winged. And that means that they start out narrow when they come off the main plant stem, and then they get wider as they approached the leaf and the final factor is the leaf when you feel it top and bottom is. As itchy as sandpaper. So if you touch it, and you feel that sandpaper. You know, you've got a Jerusalem artichoke now, I would add one more thing that reason to plant this plant, and that is it makes a great trap crop for Bambi. Dear love to eat the tops off of Jerusalem, artichoke plants. And so if you plant a patch of Jerusalem, artichokes, you know, down in a corner of your property somewhere. Not only can it keep the deer down there. But also the Deere will then in some minor fashion. Keep it a little bit in check your right and. Yeah. So certainly if you have a deer problem don't put it right in your main garden, but planted down where you want the deer to to congregate. And you're going to be better off, you know, I hadn't thought about that. Because I haven't gardened with deer in so many years now, which is a tremendous joy and relief. But when I was in Pennsylvania, and I tried to grow Jerusalem, artichokes, there they never got beyond about two feet tall because the deer would nip them consistently. But you did still get. Tubers out of them, which is interesting. So you could you could plant them as a deer trap and then still enjoy the harvest because the deer eating the tops of the plants not the tubers that are underground two for one with Heli emphasis, tuber oaths. Today's question comes from sandy who wrote I loved sunflowers, but I don't have room for the big ones are they're smaller ones that I can grow. Absolutely, sandy. These are one of the easiest plants to grow from seed, and you can grow varieties that are twelve inches tall. You can grow varieties that are three feet four feet tall. So I would say check it out. I know the dwarf yellow spray from American meadows is one that I can mention I grew ballad sunflowers this year that we're only about twelve inches tall. Actually, American meadows. Also offers one called the dwarf double sun gold. That's only two or three feet tall. And it's got this. It's a really cool looking flower..

"C L today for our eat drink grow segment. I would like to talk about Jerusalem, artichokes, and the main reason I want to talk about them is because I have so many Jerusalem, artichokes, I I am going to be hard pressed to use them up by the end of winter. I've been mailing priority. Mailboxes of Jerusalem, artichokes, all over the country to anyone who expresses an interest do want them. Absolutely. But let me ask you this. However, this is a plant that is in the Heli, Anthony family, right Heli tuber Otis. And you can immediately know where to burrow says comes from. They've got. Yeah. Hooper's that are edible. So did you grow these in your yard? Or did you forage for these well this year and last year, I grew them in my yard. And this is a plant that you can forage for and it's found all across the country. But it's. Also such a pretty plant that a lot of people planted in their gardens not knowing that it is also an edible plant. The fact is that Jerusalem our show has such an aggressive growth habit. I mean it spreads so fast. So well that it's really a perennial vegetable this is something you can plant have a ton of dig Amal up. And all if all you do is replant one fifth to one quarter of your Jerusalem, artichokes, bring the rest of them into the kitchen, you will not even know next year that you harvested any at all. Yeah. I would say beware beware. Beware. Beware. Unless you want to eat them because how nice to be able to harvest with impunity these really spread aggressively you use that aggressive word. And boy are they an infect I think in some wild areas. They're almost a problem. Here's the thing though. They are native to eastern North America. So it's not that this is and exotic invasive plant, right? They they are not related to artichokes, right? But they are related to sunflowers, and they do not come from Jerusalem that so honestly when I talk about them, I usually call them, son chokes, okay? And that's another name for them along with Jerusalem, artichokes, and they are beautiful sunflowers. And even if you're not the slightest bit interested in digging up, the tubers and an eating them, and you should be because they're really tasty. They are a great plant for the back of a sunny border this year in my crappy soil, and my soil is really not good. They grew to be at least ten feet, maybe twelve feet tall. And they they're not the really giant sunflowers each flowers probably two or three inches across but multiple flowers per plant. They branch at the top. And you get this wonderful display of bright yellow flowers against the blue sky, and they're just enchanting. I can't say enough good things about them. Well, when you eat a Deruz lem artichoke tuber, you should know that Lewis and Clark in their expedition across the America eight Jerusalem, artichokes that the native Americans provided for them. Well, I'm not at all surprised to hear that. But it does bring to mind another topic and a small warning about Jerusalem, artichokes, do know what I'm gonna say, you're not in your heads. I think I do know what you're going to say they are sometimes known by. A nickname, right. Yes. And that nickname is Jerusalem fart jokes. And the reason being that the starch that's contained in Jerusalem, artichokes is called in Ulan. And this is starch that's actually highly recommended for people with blood sugar issues because it's a slow release start. It's a starch that the body breaks down slowly and easily and it does not provoke spikes in your blood sugar. But it does in some people create a little bit of gas in the digestive tract. So to minimize that. It's best to harvest or Jerusalem, artichokes, after the first frost that that minimizes the gashes snus of the tuber, and it's also best to cook them long and slow you can eat Jerusalem arch tubers, raw they're actually very tasty sliced up in a salad, but you are more likely to feel a little gassy after that. Then you would be if you if you ate them cooked. So. If you've never eaten them before you might wanna start out slowly and just eat a little bit. See how your body responds to them? I think that's good advice. Yeah. These are very healthy for you. They increase calcium absorption in the body. So that is a good thing. Right..

"But you could use you come over to the used lot. It's cheaper digging. Oughta just as good now wanna new I want an unused new coal. There's nothing better for a calm right into Jerusalem than a horse. Nobody's ever been. Exactly. All right. So in Matthew, the parable of the talents is in chapter twenty five which occurs. Well after Jesus entry into Jerusalem all the way back in chapter twenty one. So the chronology is flipped. Okay. And if you wanna more detailed description of this event, we cover it neponset twenty-seven. But I do think it's worth pointing out as Dan brought up that not only do these two not a line in the chronology. They differ in the manner in which Jesus interest Jerusalem in one fundamental way in Luke Jesus enters writing a cult in Matthew he enters writing both occult and an asset the same time. Tell you something you haven't lived until you've written ridden a Colt and an asset the same those rodeo gals standing on the back of two horses. It's it's a whole category in porn hub, people even what? Good closer rodeo porno. Probably don't there is now obvious. Yes. Okay. And this version this is the second to last parable Jesus gives at all the last one being the parable of the sheep and the goats which occur here in the same chapter. So. And then in the next chapter here Jesus betrayed. So this is the second to last parable Jesus gives in Matthew addle. Okay. He's about to die. These us about today. Famous last words think right? You in a regular narrative story. The last words would be would have some import to them and would have some extra meeting. Maybe imbued into the whatever you want to wrap it up. Yeah. Yeah. All right here we go Matthew twenty five thirty. We'll we'll bounce. It is pretty quick for the kingdom of heaven is as a man traveling into a far country who called his own servants and delivered unto them his goods, so already the narrative is moving much better and unto one he gave five talents to another to and to another one to every man, according to his his several ability. It's totally different. But yeah. And straight straightway took his journey. Okay. What is talent worth asked? Nobody again. Well, a talent is apparently about seventy five pounds of gold. He gave somebody five seventy five pound goose, which in today's dollars would be about one million four hundred thousand one hundred sixteen dollars and fifty seven cents. Yeah. But the gold market fluctuate does lectu eight holy ball. Right in this story. There are total of seven talents. So we're talking about nine million eight hundred.

"Well, it's not as easy to figure out as you might think basically a pound was worth one hundred dramas a drama at the time being equivalent to a laborers wage for a day's work. Oh my God. That's a lot of money. A lot of money therefore ten pounds was roughly equivalent to one thousand days of labor. Holy cow trade that on the market. Okay. Back to the story. But his citizens hated him. And sent a message after him saying, we will not have this man to reign over us. And it came to pass when he was returned because that's how kings work. Yeah. And that's kind of it for them. Peace of this citizen uprising that's over. Nope. We won't have it, dammit. And then it's just like it came to pass that when he was returned having received the kingdom. So we're just not having to address that. Right. Having received the kingdom, then he commanded. These servants to be called unto him to whom he had given the money that he might know how much every man had gained by trading. Okay. Okay. Then he came I saying they were all supposed to go out into the world. Although it didn't say I mean, it kind of said occupied till I come home. But apparently they were supposed Apparently fairly meant. meant invest wisely investing. So then came the first saying Lord, pound half gain ten pounds. Which is what I say. Every time. I get on the scale and he said unto him. Well, thou good servant because they'll has been faithful in a very in very little thou have that authority over ten cities damn, okay? And then the second came saying Lord, thy pound half gained five pounds. And he said likewise to him be be they'll also over five cities. Okay. Now, if you're a frequent listener of this podcast or reader of the bible, it would be fair to assume at this point. We're going to have to go through all ten servants right in the same manner. Thankfully, that's not the case in this story. And we're going to kind of end at the next servant. So please keep listening. Thank you. Jesus. Verse twenty and another came saying Lord, behold, here's I pound which I have kept laid up in an app kin. Your list of words, you never thought would be in the bible. Four I feared the because thou art and a steer man. Thou- take up and they'll last thou take up that the latest not down and replaced that thou didst not so okay. Wow. We'll keep going and he saith unto him out of an own mouth. Will I judge? The thou wicked servant now newest that. I was an austere man taking up that I had not laid down and reaping that I did not. So where for then gave us thou. Not thou my money into the Bank. Sorry, it's really hardly this that at my coming. I might have required. Mine own with usury. And he said into them that stood by take from him that pound and give it to him that half ten pounds, and they said into him Lord, he at ten pounds for I say to you that unto everyone that which hath Shelby given and from them that hath not even that he has she'll be taken away from him. I know that's really hard to kind of get to this is why we use different versions of the bible versions of bible Dobie started having an argument in bible times with the sentence structure, exhaust saucy. But basically what it saying is to to he that hath have stuff. Shelby given more stuff. Right. And from that have not stuff shell his stuff be taken. And thus we have why the Republicans value leave the the Wall Street over the common, man. And and to to that we will get it ends. But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them. Bring hither and slay them before me. Whoa. What's happening? I don't know. It's it's very nebulous. Okay. So Matty didn't get interest on. It's fucking pound. Yeah. Which by the way, Usery usually is against is a Christian law. Absolutely. So okay. So that's it. There is no more right after that Jesus give right after it gives his parable he jumps on this unused Colt and enters Jerusalem. So great. There we go. That's Luke in Matthew. Okay. I got a whole lot of colts..

"Dan. Yes, sir. You know, certain of us have abilities beyond what the norm are you? Are you saying that you're one of the X men? I'm actually one of the w men. It's it's our generations versions off brand. It's not as good. I can make myself blue. But I'm unhealthy for a week. My what I can do is. I'm really good at getting things that fall down next to the drivers. Is the console? So they don't need me often in a fight. But man, when they do my my my mutant powers that my clothes. Stay dry. No matter what it doesn't matter. I mean, it's not useful. But I can do it. I'm self empathize. I can tell what I'm thinking. I don't think that's the kind of talent that Doug wants to talk to us about. No, I think is the flute. Or is this competition? So I thought today it's been awhile since we did a parable of Jesus. Oh. Terrible parables with uncle. We never called the fucking segment then it is. Now, we did it. We did it. New year. And so, you know, before jumping in it's worth reiterating that these two Christians are as close to the source code as you will get these are the direct words of Jesus Christ to his followers while he was on earth red letter shit. So this isn't some nebulous prophecy. This isn't some interpretation of what are what are what this Jesus. It is also bullshit. Yes. It's bullshit. From the source of the bullshit right straight out of the bulls assets. Right. It's the most uncut bullshit. He can. Today will be what we talking about one of the more problematic parables, the parable of the talents. So in Luke, it's called the parable of the pounds. Oh, and in Matthew. It's the parable of the talents, and what we'll get into both of those those fucking gospels are fighting again, again, just This what? just what Jesus and gospels gospels get it together. So we'll take them chronologically and do Luke I and as always we're reading from the King James version of the bible. Official oppression. Unless one of us on different one of us is doing it unless wonder by will sponsor us. There you go. You can buy me out of my loyal under bible dot net. I wonder when that will happen. Okay. So this parable comes right at the end of Jesus ministry in the book of Luke. In fact, it is in the same chapter the Jesus rides into Jerusalem to his alternate death on the back of a Colt and importantly, it's a cult that. No one has heretofore ridden. That matters for that reason. It's a virgin, yeah. It's a very well doesn't say that hasn't been that's called up Bronco. I think you're wrong. That Reid was a little more energetic than commonly. Markets calling on his vast experience in dressage. No in rodeo. Dressage your fucking Ann Romney get away from me. So in the same chapter he'll go pardon me in the in the story in Luke Jesus will go on to give a few more parables once inside Jerusalem. But this is the last one he gave us before going into the belly of the beast. So it's kind of the end of his ministry outside of Jerusalem. So wait, the parable is just given. Donkey back. No, he gives us parable. And then basically immediately gets on the the the cult and rides into Jerusalem thought it was a donkey we'll get to that. Dammit. We will do I poem frond or not. I don't know always pump from. Okay. Okay. So let's do it Lou front just if you're in doubt ever front like the wind pump fron like kung FU move that threatens. Right. It's the Buddha. Frontier. Okay. So here we go. Luke nineteen twelve twenty seven. Starting out verse twelve he said, therefore, a certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return the best way to know, if something if a story is bullshit is if it's a certain noble Knight xactly, no names, no specifics girlfriend in Canada. And he called his ten servants and delivered delivered them ten pounds and said unto them occupy till I come is this pounds, meaning money, sterling. So what is the worth of pound asked one?.
