That was then Secretary of State. Mike Pompeo, speaking in June 2020. The administration's action against Isis personnel was widely criticized. When Joe Biden took office, his administration was asked with sanctions be lifted. In response, Biden's State Department said it would thoroughly review them. I don't see what there is to review this executive order needs to be descended now it needed to be rescinded A month ago. Katherine Gallagher is a lawyer with the Center for Constitutional Rights. Look, I don't need the Biden administration to love the fact that US actors are being investigated for crimes against humanity and war crimes. But what I do want to see is my government, not obstructing justice. But now there's more at stake for an important U. S ally Israel Earlier this month I C C judges ruled that the court has jurisdiction over the Palestinian territories.

Israel freezes plan to send vaccines to foreign allies
"The story coming out of israel this week. was That israeli journalists. Kelly cohen reported that israel's going to send one hundred thousand vaccines to nineteen nations around the world. Some of these nations announced that they were moving are had already moved embassies or missions to jerusalem honduras guatemala czech republic. There was no debate at all In the security cabinet no authorization by the justice. Minister of foreign minister and benny was the defense minister. And by the way interim justice minister said that thinks he's a running running kingdom and not a state by this decision obviously. Israel's already criticized for not making it a priority to vaccinate. The palestinians may talk a little bit more about that. But it isn't making us look better right this these one hundred thousand. Vaccinations being sent abroad. No i didn't think it is. Because i mean vaccine diplomacy which is a new thing now in our will. But he's a real thing you know with china india jostling with each other to distribute vaccines to win influence and goodwill in asia etc. You know united arab emirates is is giving vaccine to egypt. Obviously this is a thing to be doing. Russia trying to boost its profile. But the problem here is. It's very transparent. The israelis basically rewarding friends. You know that hungry set up. A trade mission in jerusalem or the republicans promised to do something similar and therefore because of that recognition Be wants to reward those countries Vaccine i mean it goes down well for the reason you know. Which is the story. A big story around the world is that israel is not accenting Its nearest neighbors and therefore misses something. I think about vaccine diplomacy well. Why don't we just talk about that. Because of course that has reached a new audience that notion of what israel's doing not doing vaccine right and it reached a new audience in you're referring to the snl clip that How shall you say this. Caused a bit of a ruckus this week. So let's listen in and talk a little bit more about reporting that the vaccinated half of their population. And i'm gonna guess it's the jewish half. I mean obviously you mentioned this. Jonathan about how if I think you said this one of the previous episodes if this was new zealand. We wouldn't be hearing at the end of the vaccination thing but because it's israel and it's politically charged. There's there's added complexity to the story. Yeah i mean you know you states say. The snl clip went viral jojo. Avars use that word to me. That was a big moment. Really because it's mainstream american comedy. If that is now it seems to me. There's a judgment there. Such a night live making the among its audience. There will be a perception as a more left wing. Frankly view of israel than i think would have been true a generation ago And you can make a joke like that sort of edgy but the the among kinda millennial snl audience who. Let's say you know. Revere alexandria ocasio cortez. The idea that israel is basically a little bit racist is a joke that lands without audience. That's what i think. Snl thinking there and just on the point about vaccine diplomacy. It seems to me that is the piece that's missing. Which is okay. You think you get a little bit of goodwill in hungary czech republic or whatever but actually what is noticed around the world and we can get into the arguments for and against is. The palestinians are not being vaccinated by israeli vaccine. And that's the big picture to the point where it took butter than snl joke.

Israel Begins Phased Reopening To Citizens With Proof Of 2 COVID-19 Shots
"Life might be like as the pandemic lessons. It is vaccinated a higher portion of his citizens than any other country, about a third of had both doses. And this week is real started opening new doors to people who've had their shots. NPR's Daniel Estrin reports that includes places like gyms and the theater. Many businesses in Israel still aren't ready to open. But it's opening night at the first Israeli Indoor theater to put on a play after months of lockdown, Adam thinking and usher at Jerusalem's fun theater checks, tickets and something called a green pass, just taking their green a passport. It's called Check that they have been vaccinated or that there were sick and then the better Israelis one week after their second shot or recovered from the virus can print out a government issued green Pass. With their I d number and a Q R code. This is all very new. The Usher doesn't have a scanner, so he holds up the pass and asked the mostly senior age theatergoers. To recite their I d numbers by heart to make sure no one's cheating. Just make sure to make sure that they're not for you. Someone else's you know, it's not a picture. If you don't have a green pass, you can't see the show. Tear to post Glinski and or REITs. Come here come early. We feel its pioneers mean it doesn't matter what they're performing. We've come It's been way too long Since we were here. Do you feel safer, knowing that everyone in the audience will be with a green past? That's essential. It would have been worrisome if we had to sit in a closed theater with lots of people breathing at us. If we didn't know they both got both vaccines. We've been waiting for people to take responsibility and do that. Not everyone has. Vaccinations are available to all Israeli adults. But 40% of those in their twenties haven't done it. Some think they're healthy and don't need it. Others have heard false rumors of bad side effects. The promise of a green pass is a popular incentive. You can't get into a hotel theater or Jim without one. The vaccination center in the city of Petra Tikva. A D. Sheer nervously waits in line. The only reason that I'm going to get this vaccine is because I want to go to the gym. So it works. The pressure works. Yes, the pressure works way stop by a nearby gym and watch a young man still not fully vaccinated. Get turned back at the entrance. While 50 year old of fear on the El finishes his first wait routine in a year. I feel safe for now. I don't know what will be in 22 years. I want to leave now next door. There are hardly any vaccines for Palestinians in the West Bank in Gaza in Israel, the issue is that some Israelis refused to get vaccinated. One lawyer representing vaccine refuse ear's says some employers threatened to fire them or put them on unpaid leave until they agree to get vaccinated. There was a similar dilemma at the theater director hoodie Ben Moshe says his stage manager, and some actors didn't want to get vaccinated. So he pleaded for us both for us. We want to work. They want to come back and work. Please do it for us, and he says they agreed. Now, an hour before curtain. The director is worrying about something else that scared the death tonight. The audience first with that funny mask off faces. They still believe it. Jeter will still work this magic. He had nothing to worry about. The audience laughed through their masks. The play is no cowards, Life spirit translated into Hebrew. Light comedy just with the audience needed. Daniel Estrin. NPR NEWS Jerusalem When David

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

Daughters of Zion: Fashion Forward Females
"So who were the daughters of zion. Each term used throughout the bible mostly in the old testament but occasionally in the new testament as well. Zion's not a person but rather a place zion is the dwelling place of the lord. Daughter of zion is usually used to describe the inhabitants of jerusalem daughters of zion reverse to specific women and today's passage in isaiah. Three sixteen to twenty six isaiah is speaking directly to wealthy jewish women who had gone astray isaiah three opens by giving judgment on the men of judah and jerusalem. He warned the israelites of what is to come in the days ahead because of their wickedness he specifically addresses the wealthy and those in positions of leadership because they're the ones who were living in luxury while oppressing the poor. They had become an aristocratic society that was leading to the moral decline of their culture. I find versus six and seven particularly interesting. How they were going to choose their leaders but that discussion. We'll have to wait for another day today. We concentrate on what isaiah had to say on the daughters of zion after fifteen verses of condemnation for the men verse sixteen opens with moreover the lord says after rebuking the men for their role in the destruction that was to come isaiah turns his attention to the women to let them know that they're responsible as well. Bursts sixteen describes the women's behavior specifically the way they walked because the daughters of zion are haughty and walk with outstretched necks and want an is walking and mincing as they go making a jingling with their feet. Verse seventeen prophesized. What will happen to them. Because of their era guidance therefore the lord will strike with the scab the crown of the head of the daughters of zion and the lord will uncover their secret parts. Isaiah goes on to give an exhaustive list of all the jewelry and accessories that the lord will take away from the women. The list includes anklets scarves necklaces bracelets headdresses headbands perfume boxes. Charms rings nose rings purses mirrors an robes. He closes the chapter with the list of replacements. Instead of the sweet smell of their perfumes there will be a stench. Instead of they're pretty sashes rope baldness will take over there beautifully. Styled hair rich robes replaced with sackcloth branding instead of beauty and if that's not enough there men will die in battle verse. Twenty six concludes with her gates shall lament and mourn and she being desolate shall sit on the ground. Why does is e start by talking about the way they walked. Well let's look at how they're walking out nex. We would describe that as walking with your nose in the air. A way of saying that you're looking down on others because you're better than they are. Wantin- is that means ogling or flirting we can assume for the rest of this passage that these are married women so why are they flirting with other men walking and mincing as they go the an iv version translates that as strutting along with swaying. Hips in other words flirting. So how does god respond to their flirtatious and proud. Behavior translated literally verse. Seventeen says the women will get leprosy or other sickness. That causes their hair to fall out. That would be a pretty scary warning especially for vein women who are consumed with their appearance while many of the items listed in verses eight through twenty three are familiar to us. many more are obscure items that we're not sure what they were. Bible scholars point out. That many of these articles came from foreign cultures. I wanna man even. Oh what happened these things were. The general consensus is that his wife who was a prophet is probably provided him with this list of items worn by these women. Isaiah reminds them that these things they have are fleeting and will soon be replaced in a mere ten verses highs. Ahah takes us from these women at the height of their popularity feeling like they're living the dream to them tumbling down to the depths of humiliation from walking with outstretched necks and a jingle to their steps to morning destitute on the bare ground. What a fall while this was written about women centuries ago the same message can be preached today. Are we not living in a society much like the one isaiah describes we as christian women could be called daughters of zion. Are we guilty of the same transgressions as these women. Perhaps you don't mince and strut as you walk and you probably don't jingle but do you have pride in your heart. Are there people you look down on those. You consider inferior. How much time do you spend on your outward appearance. How much time do you spend on your spiritual appearance verse. Seventeen talks about god's stripping away. They're beautiful hair and uncovering their secret parts. What if god stripped away your carefully combed hair your makeup and manicured nails your jewelry and fashionable clothes. What would be left

Um, the Trump administration moved the U. S embassy here to Jerusalem, where I am and sided with Israel's claims to the city. Palestinians also have claims in Jerusalem. So then the Palestinians cut ties with Trump. And then Trump stopped giving humanitarian aid to Palestinians, so there was just a lot of bad blood between them, and Biden has pledged to reverse a lot of what Trump did. He says he will restore humanitarian aid to Palestinians. He will oppose Israeli settlement activity in the occupied West Bank. Trump actually supported Israeli Claims to territory there. So now there are some Palestinians who are disappointed that the Biden team says they will not be moving the embassy out of Jerusalem, but the Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, Congratulated biting today and he's expecting violent to be more favorable to the Palestinians

"I think that's eighty that really is the profound point that uh that president trump would have done a good job by elaborating on and then i think your point is correct he touched on the point but he didn't really elaborate on it i think his statement was basically very good but it would have been better had he spent a little more time on the point that you just made which is the jerusalem issue is highly significant because the essence of the arab objection to israel throughout israel's entire existence and even to the zionist movement before israel came into existence the essence of their objection is that the jewish people have no rights at all in the land of israel in palestine and that the jews are not a nation that they do not have the historical can connection to the land that basically everybody who knows history knows that in fact they do and this denial of any jewish connection to the land in any jewish national writes in the land is really what the arabisraeli conflict has been about for over a hundred years and so the point that says david that the jews have no claim to jerusalem as their capital goes to the heart of this kind of philosophical ideological religious and nationalistic objection that the arabs have to the existence of the state of israel and so i think getting beyond that issue as the united states has now done really does contribute to peace because one of the most important messages the united states can deliver is that we don't consider those fundamental objections to israel's existence to be legitimate and we don't have to respect them and it doesn't make any sense to deny the reality of the jewish connection to jerusalem or jerusalem's role as israel's capital you i think a lot of listeners are around the world who are hearing this podcast are asking why now and why it's important to do this now while the at the media.
