"We're bringing return unless we don't bring you because even though the law of return says you should. We're excluding you because of the strange arrangement it's a very strange radio and we see it didn't work. I mean any even people who everyone even people who believe that this shouldn't happen because they're not jewish enough or whatever it something's wrong you can't bring on entire family leave a brother behind so yes so. This arrangement didn't work for them for and how much of it. I mean you already said that some of it has to be racism but some of it. Also just a rejection of like crypto jews of conversions. That well if you turn to christianity than we don't want to rescue is that i think that sentiment is being plagued by political players But but i didn't see it happened in other communities. I mean combination. Yeah there are communities with people. Marrying non-jews are converting then. I'm rooting for example. We mentioned the the former soviet union there there some of them who are like that and it wasn't an issue So i think it's. It's mainly political power. And i i think also the ministry of of treasure We slept out south. See them as As a liability and that they need to give them budget which they don't want to give but again i think that goes to political power is basically be able to get your issue on the agenda. Yeah how do you get a voice in government fighting for you right and the treasury saying well since it takes them so long to acclimate to an industrialized economy. It's not worth putting our effort into save their lives because the former Soviet union is Gave a lot to. The israeli economy was people who had scientific education and many of these people don't have the scientific even though now in the cities more there is more of that people who are Or more ready for the israeli mentality but still So yeah so they see them as a as a community which is a need and they don't want and they don't see it Worth their money by the way most of the budget for the on. This is only in israel this budget by israeli government. Everything that happens in ethiopia plane ticket. Anything preparing them there To the hood everything is funded by Donations to the jewish new the jewish agency. So this doesn't go into the shortly budget but again in the ministry of Treasurer they they They make up these huge numbers about how much it's gonna cost which we've seen over the years which were little made up but currently there is also in that area. The minister we side cuts. He's he pushed it in this special budget for corona which was very limited. He did he did give. He made it possible for two thousand people to emigrate in the neck till the end of two thousand and twenty probably won't look till the end maybe a little after but it's going to be very the numbers in fact..

"Policy and Advocacy Jesse at highest the Hebrew Immigration Aid Society One of nine refugee resettlement agencies in the United States and the primary Jewish Agency for Refugees last month highest and two other faith based agencies took president trump to court over his reason executive order requiring states to opt in if they want to accept refugees so far only thirteen eighteen states have opted in though they expect and hope that number will grow. Naomi is here to discuss. What the order and other restrictions on refugee resettlement mean for the Jewish community Naomi? Welcome so given the reduction of the CAP on refugee resettlement here in the United States. How has that affected highest in particular killer and also the refugees that many agencies resettle here? Yeah it's a really good question and I would pivot quickly to the latter part of the question because the top priority really is how this is affecting refugees when we talk about the refugee admissions target. Also known as the presidential determination. Talk in Col- all numbers we talk about. This year's number of eighteen thousand last year's number was thirty thousand than the year prior to that was forty five. You can see it success going down each year But what those numbers don't really tell the story of our the families that are separated of the lives that are left in precarious situations. These are real people real human beings kings who are being torn apart from their families because of policy decisions that are being made in Washington. DC So our top priority as an organization that works on behalf half of forcibly displaced people around the world is making sure that refugees have access to this refugee resettlement programme lifesaving or Ram families. These are able to be reunited through this program. It is a cornerstone of our refugee resettlement in this country. Tau Priority are the refugees who are personally impacted by this but of course as an organization that is one of the nine national partners with the. US Government Commences Program of course has an impact on us and one of the primary ways in which we've been impacted. As as the American Jewish Communities International Refugee Organization we are deeply rooted in the American Erkin Jewish community. We could not do our work without them. And so we have seen around the country in outpouring of interest and concern sern about what is happening to this program and some of the ways that our community members getting ball certainly through advocacy and certainly through public actions but they're really concrete ways. Raised members of the Jewish community help to welcome refugees synagogues around the country are looking for ways to support incoming refugees. And that's simply is is not so easy to do anymore because resettle refugees are not coming in in any significant numbers. This attack on our Jewish values primarily bads of welcoming the stranger. We all have refugee backgrounds and our family histories. We are not so far removed from these stories ourselves so an attack on the. US refugee beauty. Resettlement program is an attack on E. R. Word of an American Jewish community. So we have felt that impact deeply and we are continuing to stand up and speak out on behalf of refugee resettlement in that country. did highest half to close Not Offices but end refugee resettlement programs in various areas locations across the country because of the reduced cap so this is a bigger challenge than just for highest. They said we are one of the nine National National Refugee Resettlement agencies we partner with the US government in the US refugee admissions program and across the network Multiple Refugee Lee. Settlement offices have closed the way this works. Is there the nine national resettlement agencies that we all work with a network of local organisations around the country and and so prior to this administration and there were about one hundred more of those local offices doing local refugee resettlement than there are now so there has been a precipitous. Drop 'em highs. This network has been relatively lucky but this is as I said this is about more than highest about the overall strength of the program and we have seen many of these local organizations need to shut down because of the reduction refuge. You read okay so now. The CAP stands at eighteen thousand as and four year. Two thousand twenty is that correct. Yes for fiscal year. Twenty twenty so from October one through September thirtieth okay and so that has not. I've been the only development in this past year. There has also been an executive order signed having to do with refugee resettlement in different states and cities. Can you tell us a little bit more about that. Yeah sure thing so. In September the administration issued another executive order. which is really designed to hamstring string refugee resettlement and refugee? Welcome in this country at its core with this. Executive orders says is that an order for resettlement to continue in any given state state and locality the governor of that state and the Chief County executive or the equivalent thereof must proactively provide in writing consent to allow resettlement to continue. This is a complete change so the way the program has worked since its formalization in nineteen eighty is a radical departure. Her and what is deeply frustrating about this as we know that this is the other effort to politicize refugees refugees. It is essentially a back door behind the scenes kind of way of shutting down the program. Again it is a state by State County by county refugee bad and so we are deeply concerned about this not the least of which is because it's also unnecessary states and counties are already deeply involved involved with the. US Refugee Resettlement programme. Refugee resettlement agencies are in regular consultation with their county and states Colleagues it's it's just baked into the program is an essential part of how the program operates. So this purports to strengthen the input from elected officials in states eighth unhealthy as just the disingenuous claim because that type of engagement has already existed for many many years so highest along with two other resettlement organizations is suing the trump administration over this correct. Yes that is correct. Okay and so I guess. What are the states? How are the states and cities responding responding and receiving this executive order so far the reason that highest decided to Linda Gate is because the executive order is not only Leeann advocation of Federal Authority? But it also really flies in the face of the American Jewish values that guide us not just as an organization but our community and our long long history of helping refugees start their lives fresh in United States. Because as I said this executive order really as an effect state-by-state city by city refugee band. And so what we are seeing though is that the response to this has been swift. We are seeing states. We're seeing governors. We are seeing county executives lives. Speak out and say yes. We support refugee resettlement in our communities. We stand firmly behind this program and so we have been really pleased to see that but the work is not done because every single place where resettling takes place now has step have consent from the county executive and the governor and this is an incredibly incredibly cumbersome process and the onus on collecting this consent falls onto the resettlement agencies so the work before us is great. We do and not have a lot of time and the clock is ticking. Because we have to gather that consent by we I mean resettlement agencies on a fairly expedited timeline and so this is an all consuming task for the resettlement agencies. Because we need to make sure the resettlement continues in as many communities as possible and we really are facing yet again another existential threat to the refugee resettlement program in this country. So I read a wonderful article in The Washington Post about how Utah's governor actually requested more refugees and from the tone of that article it appeared that the executive order was perhaps even rendered mood because the states and cities the tone has been been shifting really and even those that lean Republican aren't in favor of this approach to refugee resettlement and are actually pushing back against it. Is that an overstatement well. Well I wouldn't say that. The support makes the executive order moods we are so Dec- that Republican governors and county executives have been speaking out supportive resettlements in their communities. We are not surprised by that because we know that refugee resettlement is not a partisan issue that people oh from both parties have been deleted this program since the very start and so. We're not surprised to see because we understand the reality of how Refugee New Jersey resettlement really works in this country and we know the political debates here in Washington. DC to not reflect the reality of resettlement works in the local communities that said ahead as pleased as we are to see the handful of Republican governors including North Carolina. Utah Massachusetts stand up and speak out and say that we want refugee resettlement to continue. There are states across the country which we still had not received consent so with that list needs to grow that this needs to grow exponentially initially so it's a great start but we have a lot of work ahead of us. How many states have not given their consent? The vast majority okay. Okay Well Naomi thank you so much for giving us an update on the refugee resettlement situation here in the United States. And thank you for the work that you do. Yeah thank you so much now. It's time for our closing segment about table. Talk and this week at our Shabat table..

"About the Zionistic Opportunity as put getty to that point and Saint Yourself. You know what you Don Alley is just not good enough for me. I want to help others make all and this is the has this vision. I have you know when you take you to come to come to that so a few weeks after the tragedy and a few weeks of just feverish conversations with people. I registered as a nonprofit. I didn't say anything to anyone in my shoe or anyone on my board and And I took a good look. I think for their two different types I leaders. Are you talking about our leadership. PODCAST leaders who have genetic code that their foreign to lead and they just have that charisma that people follow them anything. There are other individuals that have maybe that dormant genetic code and that when they attach themselves to have caused and they're honest to their strengths and weaknesses and they linked themselves to that. 'cause they tried to move mountains and I did a true real bill analysis of what my strengths and weaknesses were and I think besides being passionate about a cause and knowing fully every detail about that caused because the worst thing is suspend all your effort and and energy into something realizing that thing exists two blocks now is equal to those two components is finding a partner due to complement and supplement some of your your your talents in your skills and a couple Tony Gilbert at that time share temp shared with him dream of doing something Tony was in Boca's well Commun- of Mine Hill shared with him after some of the research that I did I did a lot of research I wrote an on a sign nondisclosure with the Jewish Agency I went up to New York for a couple of weeks looked at all the doormat files of people who made alley who wanted to make didn't move. How'd you even get how'd you? How'd you get there? How the headphone the end? No pump sharing with you. Find Away Person. Okay keep on knocking on doors when you are a Michigan to something when you Michigan on something you don't take no for an answer Found a someone to donate their time in the market research company. BBDO someone has some time on their hands and they did a full analysis of some of the statistics that to their table. The files of people who who wanted to go and never actualized are Elian people move came back looking at the retention rate instead of them as well and analyzing it and then once I realized that there could be a solution presented to this. And I bought it to Tony Gilbert and I said and my crazy here my crazy where am I in something. And he kicked it around for a bunch of days zone team came back and said not only. You're onto something but I'll be your partner and that was not where I was addressing but it was fantastic because I realized how much I needed him in certain holes that I had for my own. Well what was always Tony's his background Tony's background is as a marketing genius And he's a tremendous least successful businessman and his detachment from day. One is I'll be connected to this if we run it as a business business with a heart but this is not the run like a non-profit which we'll get to a little bit later on which has really up my game a bit of how I what I've learned over the years and how wage rest this institution and I think a lot of our successes that we don't treat it as it's a regular non-profit but we treat it and run it like a business Business with a heart and so once once I got Tony on board. Then we then we went to Israel and we want to make sure that there was a relativity on Israel's side because what we're doing to stop you basically saying since nineteen forty eight you guys don't really know what your that your entire orientation into Elliott in Israel has been this and we Americans sitting comfortably in Boca Raton. Florida coming to teach you how to do it differently even though we have never than anything anything in the world and immigration took a lot of guts in a lot of Chutzpah. And in retrospect it was ridiculous that we actually did it and we've bounced around from different personalities. The president of Israel. It's the Prime Minister of Israel to economic minister. Israel's foreign affairs chief rabbi and and through Tony's connections as well and other connections we were able to manage orchestrate these meetings and the resounding response that we got from everyone is. We need this desperately. We don't know how to do this. And that mitigated the risk of it for me. It's still an what are we. HOW ARE WE GONNA put it into action action and then slowly getting traction and then we've raised like every every dollar I was raising was raised? Ten MM fifteen thousand dollars for me. That was astronomical took out a few bunch of full-page ads the newest Jewish newspapers just to see if there was a response to to my email to my mailing address post office address. Hundreds of applications hundreds of letters started coming in so so empirically hit an artery. Not only was there a statistically on the Israel side from that incredible Chutzpah but we hit an artery of a neat. So once you have passion doc and once you know that there's a need on both levels on the Israel audience in the immigrant and the clients themselves and you have a partner that's willing. Who complements some of your strengths and weaknesses I felt that after a few more months of kicking the tire on this idea that it was time to tell L. my congregation that I was leaving and I left them in January two thousand and two and exclusively focused on neff. FM The two thousand and January to July ninth two thousand and two six seven months and made Ali on the first plane. I plan on four hundred. Nineteen people are jumbo debt. Prime Minister of Israel is waiting for us on the bond didn't anticipate that at all huge fanfare chunks of Energy and celebration and then the next morning like what the hell do I do now. Four hundred nine thousand people move through different countries because you promise on something. And what about the next cohort. That's coming and you might have had a shoestring budget and you might have had four or five staff members working for you now. This is is this just a fluke or is this a real institution the next seventeen years just until modifications except but again so a lot of it in business also a lot of it is follow your passion. Follow your the best type of businesses. Something that you're passionate about you're able to really. It's not considered work per se. It's considered just you try to build and fulfill the fill your dream etc and so you know getting to that right and you know the first plane like you're saying you had forty nine people follow you because that's what they were doing and and then as time went you know I it. It became really a out. Say like What I'm looking for? It became like A. It's escaping me now but you know it. Spread like wildfire became it became. It became exactly so that it became something where people are really following it saying you know what even I remember back then. I had a friend of mine. Who seem like? Oh you know what I wanted to make all yup but servers to able to really help me out. And he made Aliyah and he's been here ever since You know so you know. When did you realize that you know you had to do more than just what you you do? The fourteen of the one plane came and then the second plane. And when you start sending even more so as you head to build a following following that'll eat it really there in America great to finally getting out there speaking getting people to buy into the dream by what to do and there's a a ton of skepticism. I'm sure I mean skepticism. When I started a Leon with a four letter word I remember when I was trying to garner support not only financial support within community I spoke at A? I'M NOT GONNA say institution that we all love spoken institution and I start speaking about North American Elia somehow bribes some until me to speak for five minutes at their board meeting and the CEO of the of the institution said. We don't say that word. We don't say North.

I have the book become soon because I'm going home early. I'm at number eighty eight. So I get on my bike heading the Allenby which I realize is the continuation of holly are where the protests I just read about took place seventy years ago and I'm thinking about Zinnemann on these streets telling men missing limbs is that the worst blow they'd ever suffered their pride and it was administered by Jews in a new Jewish state. When I get the Allenby eighty-eight it's not really a store at all? It's an alleyway and on one inside of the alleyway climbing a story and a half up the wall up.

It's called face to face with the Nazi enemy. Nineteen thirty nine to nineteen forty-five the fighters tell their tales. And it's got six hundred and fifty pages as of testimonies and I say that really mostly I'm interested in the history of the organization but I guess I should read the testimony to and he says yeah. I guess you really should so I lean against so all open up the book. And the first thing I see is a very precise nineteen forty-nine inventory of the injuries of the three hundred members of the organization list that reads impart both both legs amputated below the knee. Eight both legs amputated above the knee. One one leg and one arm amputated one. No hands and feet. One blinded to WHO missing one I nineteen damage to trunk eighty-eight damaged hand one hundred and twenty damaged leg one hundred seventeen and it goes on and then I read a bit about Zahn.

I have this theory that the city is a Palim suggest like those old old manuscript where they erased the parchment and wrote something new but you can still make out the old words underneath the new ones. There are men in alleys who will show you books that will unlock advices. And you'll hear them telling stories you'll struggle to believe and there is so much mamik joy in this place.

The message of the Gospel is for everybody but I also believe that God ordered the Gospels in such a way that they do speak to everyone the gospels are letters that were written for specific people and for specific audience and I've been using this analogy that the four Gospels Matthew Mark Luke John are like the four sides of a skyscraper and I was just in downtown Philadelphia a few days ago with my family and I saw the new comcast skyscraper that they're building and my kids were with me and as we stood at the base of that building I told my daughter to look up and she stared she said how did they do that and she was asking me data how in the world that they build this building so high and see each side of the skyscraper is different in presents a different angle of the building and yet no matter which side of the building we were looking at your still looking at that same building in like olive my daughter sometimes it's almost impossible to stare without trying to rack your mind on how they they are building this an engineer this amazing thing and you know the gospels they work in the same way to fully describe the nature of Jesus Christ in only one Gospel doesn't do Justice Nice to the majesty of who he is and yet God gives us four gospels to help us see different perspectives of WHO Christ is. Maybe it's different because of who the Gospel was written in four or maybe it's different because of the message the Gospel Writers are trying to convey about Jesus <hes> or his followers to the readers as we were unpacking matthew and mark we talked about how Matthew was written for Jewish believers believers in Jesus to communicate the story of Jesus the Jewish Messiah so that as Matthew is communicating this message to a Jewish audience they can be confident to share their faith with with their Jewish friends and second matthew was also written to encourage Jewish believers who were facing persecution from the Jewish legalist of Jesus's Day and remember those Jewish legalists of Jesus. This is day. They didn't just disappear they continued to persecute the early church and so last week we looked at the gospel of mark which was written for a Roman audience. It was written in a way to convince Romans that Jesus this is the Lord and Savior of the world and that being a disciple of Jesus could come at a cost you know much of the gospel of mark is focused on the concept of discipleship and how a true disciple of Jesus should live as he lived a sacrificial life now this week we're gonNA move to the Third Gospel the last of set of gospels at are called the Synoptic Gospels The Gospel of Luke Luke background is GonNa play a major role in who he chooses to write. His Gospel to see Matthew Mark John. These are all Jewish believers in Jesus but see luke is a little different. He's a gentile we know that Luke was a gentile because in Paul's letters to the Colossians in clashes chapter four ten to fourteen Paul Lists Luke as a non-jewish follower of Jesus who supports his ministry Luke probably came from Antioch of Syria and even though he was a gentile he probably had some significant contact with Judaism before he believed in Jesus. You know scholars believe Luke was a god fearing gentile which means as a non Jew he believed in the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob Much like Cornelius in the book of Acts Scholars believe this because Luke shows a real sense of understanding of the Jewish culture and customs of his time even though he wasn't Jewish so being gentile an understanding adding Judaism Luke stands an interesting place as a gospel writer. Luke's Gospel seeks to tell a full and complete story of Jesus Christ here it is everybody to the entire gentile world old matthew very focused on the Jewish culture. <hes> mark very focused on speaking to Romans but luke stands in an interesting place with an understanding of Judaism in an understanding of what it means to be a gentile. He's he seeks to share the message of the Jewish Messiah to a gentile world and you can really see this all throughout his Gospel and remember the gospel of Luke is only part one of a series Luke also wrote the book of acts which is the history of the Early Church and in the book of acts you can see luke's desire to communicate the message of Jesus Christ to the entire gentile world and he shares the stories of Paul's missionary journeys. Paul eventually makes his way. I love this as as Lucas unpacking Paul story where to the center of the Gentile World Rome to speak to the leader of the gentile world the Emperor of Rome when Luke writes his Gospel. He's actually writing this so fascinating. He's actually writing to just one particular man. Even though he's communicating this message to the entire gentile world he's actually just writing to one man which is very unique in the four gospels that that Luke just rights rights to one man in Luke. Luke explains that he's writing this detailed account of the life of Christ for Theophilus and Theophilus was probably another god-fearing gentile like Luke who believed that Jesus was the Messiah but this is what's interesting. Luke was writing to Theophilus because Theophilus probably didn't feel welcomed within the church remember the early church was predominantly Jewish and there were there was definitely attention within the early church. Remember much of Paul's letters are devoted to the unity of the Church that we're one in Christ why because there was racial tension between Jews in gentiles during the days of Luke and Paul The Gospel Luke is speaking to Gentile Christians like the off Louis who are working through issues of being included in the story of God's redemptive plan and you can really see this come across in Luke's genealogy of Jesus this Luke's genealogy of Jesus stands apart from Matthews Luke retraces the family line of Jesus and Luke does something much different Luke traces Jesus all the way back to Adam the first man to show that Jesus's life and death and resurrection were meant for Everyone Ju- Gentile Matthew he stops at Abraham of course the figurehead of the Jewish people Abraham Isaac his son and Jacob but luke takes us all the way back to Adam and what's amazing about Luke's Gospel is that even though it was written to only one man theophilus the message of Luke's Gospel relates plates the story of Jesus to the contemporary world and culture of his day and continues even today to be a source of understanding and revelation about Jesus Luke wanted to show the gentile world that God has torn down that dividing wall between Jews and gentiles all mankind can come to the father through faith in Jesus his son it could only be done because of the grace of God. I hope you're beginning to see see the beauty on how God arranged the Gospels so that they communicate a message specifically to everybody Ju- Roman Gentile. It's even speaking to us. This is the amazing using thing it transcends time. It's even speaking to us in this very moment. God used Luke to stand between the great divide the great divide that was between the Jewish community and the gentile community luke the god-fearing fearing gentiles who placed his faith in Jesus understood some of the complex issues of what it meant to be a gentile believer in Jesus during his day and he wanted to encourage theophilus and any other gentile believers who felt out of place that they were welcomed in the story of God's redemptive plan because of what Jesus has done and I wanna end with this quote from Luke Five thirty through thirty two just listen to what Jesus says but the Pharisees he's and their experts in the law complained to his disciple saying why do you eat and drink with tax. Collectors and centers and Jesus answered them. Those who are well don't need Ada physician but those who are sick. Do I have come not to call the righteous but the sinners to Repentance D._C.. WHAT LUKE DID LUKE welcomes everybody? Everybody all are welcome to the table of fellowship in the name of Jesus why because we are all sinners who have heard the call of Jesus to turn to him. Oh <music> <MUSIC> <music> Chris October is full of Jewish feasts. We've looked on the program at Rosh Hashanah Janka poor and.

"We'll chat with experts from around the world to help you better understand the weeds headlines and what they all mean for Israel and the Jewish people. I'm your host Sethi Cogan last month. An off-duty Israeli police officer shot right and killed Solomon Teke an Ethiopian Israeli teenager. The exact circumstances are still unclear but Solomon's death has roiled the Ethiopian Israeli community and Israeli society as a whole. We're joined today by Pnina Agan Yahoo. Panini came to Israel at a young age from Ethiopia and today works as a leading agent of social change in Israel as the interfaces and synergy director in the strategic strategic planning unit of the Jewish Agency for Israel. You know thank you so much for joining us. You're welcome what do we know about the events that led to the death S. Sullivan Teke so it's a big confusing at the moment you have this demoniac from both sides the telling different stories some people from the Cuban community will say that the police officer there was there is trying to hide some. It's just the money though some that that can actually put him down to gel and out of hand. There was something that I personally even heard that they after which you can hear them anymore. They're not exist and there is a really I don't know how to express it but there is no sh in an affiliate instead of the community that they're not making the right. justic police not really looking in all the criteria on all the testimony all the voices and they basically Siklie easier for them to take the policeman side but if we want to look you know at the sucked at the moment the fact is that the policeman was in that area of playground where there was four or five teams that was playing together sitting outside and he was there not a with uniform not on duty with his wife and kids and he stayed that he sold them yelling in one kid or even be Makita and he came to help this boy and he asked him what you're doing and his group of teams told him not to intimate to this agreement. It's not as business that didn't know his policemen and the policeman said police many took out his tag and then the fact that start being different from different sides so their side said that day thought and throw a stone to because they're concerned about their life and and that he pulled the gun a dramatically and shut out and he will say that there were throwing many stones on him and he was in risk of his life and he was protecting them seven. That's why he was shooting The gun now. No one really knows exactly what happened until today and I think part of it is also because not everyone is telling the full picture of it the full story and this is another layer to what the community is expressed in regard into police profiling the discrimination by the police in Israel and and what form has that community expression taken have there been protests they were purchased then of course and I feel this process was much different from the previous wanted to know if you follow one in two thousand fifteen and the one a couple of months ago six months ago there was another case of teen was shot by a policeman man this time at the protest was much more intense and organized by the youth by the younger generation not even my generation and we did generation you know the board anythere but we came here in early age and the community the entire purchase through the what's up group. It's what's accepted. Stuck the texts applications rather everyone use it not through the media and the way they did it. It's was with known leadership on the field that you didn't have any leaders to negotiate with him in the protest to talk to him. If you're police or the you know the the press or the media it's it was all around the youth and through the what's up group by themselves and they didn't communicate what they want what fighting for the only message that they were trying to pass. Is that the society here to meet the wake up there is a police profiling and something has to be done in to this policy of how the police look at as black teams in Israel and for me by the way someone that's been in many parts of the fast it was very different because the voice here it was a different voice of of a different generation in our community but also because it's get to the point that they are very very depressed and they lost their trust lost their trusting any institution and they don't feel they can trust anyone. Even there friends that are not and I said that's the terrible thing about it. I mean it's terrible. Of course it's terrible and it's the heart and Painful Dad Assembly lost her son but I think it's also terrible and painful that there is a huge group of the generation I was born in Israel and they see them Israelis I now they see themselves if European I and they feel they you know are out of a outside of the entire society here and I'm motivated to do other things they feel. They no one care about them. There's almost like a reverse versus immolation going on where at the very beginning when the Ethiopian Elliott Israel I took place it. Was You know these are Jews. There should be welcomed. It's great that Ethiopians ends are here and now there's kind of a sorting almost like either Ethiopians are moving themselves or the rest of Israeli society moving theo. Pin's kind of outside of the mainstream. Is that what you're saying I'm saying that's the Phil that's notion now. Among the young generation I can tell daddy through my generation me and my peers and my friends we communicate a lot also through the what's up group. We all feel that you know in some cases we need to negotiate but growing communicate that with the with the answer narration tell them that you know it does astill our land we came here to stay here to be part of the society to be part of this country and we can just give up now and deaf guy you know because because of the year we need to fight back and see how we can fight ignorance in Israel or or racism and can action and our side of now way to other institution the to Shin or policymakers to take action for us but instead of is I feel there's a lot of anger and a lot of pain which is okay and and to have among the utes and that's why it's also become so violent protests. They've been there six hours outside. I was there in the first two hours and the participant tel-aviv it was very quiet very relaxed a protest this book beautifully the people for you know the a young generation spoke beautifully about what the care what's butter. Dan What's Magnum anger what's offended them and then I feel the anger was you know must must stronger than what other feelings madore out there and you had teens than you. It's all over the country protesting and and and stopping there the roads in Israel and did something didn't happen. I think the last time something like this happened was in the seventy s you know with the Moroccan community eighteen is well the same feeling with Ashkenazi Jews in Israel. I think our listeners are somewhat familiar with the basics of Ethiopia you know two large large waves mostly in the nineteen eighties nineteen ninety s today there around one hundred forty thousand Ethiopian Jews in Israel so what does that experience look like more broadly as they're Aaron. Economic gap is their social gap. You know what broadly speaking as the inexperience in Israel in my opinion during the successive side of the community unity and there's also the challenge there's still many challenges and they'll say that the challenges today as I see them is oh point five challenges that I say one of them is the skin color which is out there and I think we not there enough to speak about it to talk about it or even educated about it. I feel like today today. Dan Generation here doesn't do much embracing and skin color is part of their identity and which is okay and no one took about it too much but it's out out there and it's still a barrier because many times in Israel as the minority you may find yourself as the person that is standing ending Fourtou and documenting even though you haven't done anything regarding to that so even a kid born in Israel and is actually supposed to be an Israeli. We know what that will give an example with the young Jews in America if a young Jew in walking compass and there is movement there someone that boy guys Israel or Jewish people and he doesn't WanNa be field with that. It can take off the keep are you can take Ju- star and no one can't relate him to this community right we don't have this his privilege skin color if you know it child Bernese ballet and he wanted himself Israeli and only Israel and this is his choice of identity and he will do everything through the you know the DNA of the typical Israeli still people are gonNA look at him. I began and it's a challenge and it's something that we don't talk about at all in education system or Mongo Steph into society the second challenge in my opinion that related this it's that many sometimes institution Israel unfortunately and even individuals will cr self will see us and consider acids or limb new immigrant and again again for kids born is well that born to educate parents like me that already integrated to the society and live here to be considered Orla automatically even though you you not newborn pro up here. It's it's not only offended but it's put you in a in a very low side of the group. You're related to so especially in school system for example. If the principal the school have a special program for a new immigrant and you're gonNA pull out a kid and kid only because he looked at the appeal not because he's a new immigrant something wrong happening here. the third challenge is that our Judaism is still questionable in some sectors of the society some sectors in the society will never marry their kids with our kids because they do not think still that we Jewish or Jewish enough which is something that also relevant to other you know no and part the Jewish war if it's conservative very from and into Russian community in Israel the still forces something that we struggle a lot with because because it's a story or something that we can with us from the moment we arrived to Israel that was part of the conversation when they brought us that was part of the conversation when proper a Steph declare that we lost drew and we part of the Jewish people and still you will believe as a person that went through that for the last thirty five years..
"jewish agency" Discussed on The News & Why It Matters
"Pat, you're more like Switzerland. Yeah, I wanna stay out of the intervention, and I don't think we need to police the world anymore. We've done that for long enough, and it stretches pretty thin and another war in the Middle East is just something I don't want to see. And so this is kind of dangerous footing to be on. I'm not saying that war is imminent, but I mean, why why push that even further than it already is? I don't want to commit another hundred twenty thousand or two hundred thousand people to a war in Iran and commit our troops to another hopeless cause and just try to bring about change in the Middle East is a really, really iffy task. And it doesn't usually turn out the way you want it to for sure. All right. Josh the holocaust nine video aljazeera produce that they don't want you to see. Yeah. So pretty crazy stuff here. So Al Jazeera, which is literally, the state run prop. Ganda mouthpiece for the government of Qatar, which is the number one funder and export of Sunni Islamist Jihadism the world over tweet out a video that the really foreign ministry. I think quite accurately called holocaust nihilism. They actually took it down to the backlash. But let's read the clip the video right now, denouncing the holocaust is a moral obligation, but Israel is the biggest winner from the holocaust in a uses the same Nazi justifications as a launching pad for the racial cleansing and annihilation of the Palestinians. And that's not even the full clip elsewhere in the video. They referred to the notion that six million Jews died in the holocaust as a much regurgitated narrative, literally, holocaust nihilism. They talk about how Zionis complicit with Hitler. How the Jewish agent the Jewish Agency for Israel, which is the number one organization, committed to get Jews to make all yachts, return to Israel made an agreement with the Third Reich to base for Jews in Germany to give up their property to then freely immigration to but was then the British mandate for Palestine. So, yeah, I mean, like where to begin right? So they, they took down the video. Is that really interesting, their social media posts in Arabic and English that I'll just did was extraordinarily different is a very common tactic that zero does. So thank God, this organization called memory, the Middle East media research institute, which is amazing work. They translate all these videos from Arabic English to basically divulge stuff, just like this so good for al-jazeera for taking down. But there are broader implications here, Illinois mar, for example, frequently reach reach wheats out aljazeera outlets or, or spokespeople. I should say, medi- Hossan, and who is an aljazeera a commentator on the door of the Qatari regime is a frequent guest at CNN. How far do we unravel this, and the bigger geopolitical implication of this is, we talk more about Qatar Qatar is a tiny country? It is about two and a half of three million people. It is the wealthiest country in the world. It says on the law, and the world's largest natural gas field. They are uniquely evil. They the number one funder of the Muslim Brotherhood HAMAs, and Sunni Islamist Jihadism all across the region. They have a lot of top people in Doha, who openly give to al-qaeda and Islam estate and the government..

He is the author of the shape of shakes myth gal phase and tribal leadership in modern, Jordan. It was published recently in English by Stanford University press, professor Avalon. Hello and welcome to the Tel Aviv review. Hello, so myth gal. Fires is that. How you pronounce his name several ways you can the way he put on his own gal gal that the bedouin way. Who was he and why does he deserve bail? Graffiti when Mikhail was one of the greatest shakes of Arabia in the twentieth century. He was the leader of big tribal confederacy, which lead in the areas that. Now, Jordan, the Hashemite king of Jordan. He was very influential leader who was to power in the late nineteenth century early. Twentieth. Century played an important role in the first World War in the twins to Jenin four as an ally of Ottoman empire, by the way, then he played a very important role in their starving of Jordan in nine twenty one under the auspices of the British empire, and then he led his tribal confederacy for nearly fifty years, and he lied. I didn't ninety sixty seven even today. We can see his legacy in Jordan his descendants. They play poem in troll into politics to stay here. For instance, his grandson is now, the president of the Senate upper house. So when you thought about writing this book was it because there was virtually no one else more important in the formation of Jordan other than perhaps some kings or members of the Royal family. There are several things why such right about infest of all there is. Nearly nothing written about tribal leaders in the Middle East and those people were willing potent figures, and they played a very important world for centuries in many ways still do today. So I want to feel that lacuna and also Mikhail attracted me because I stumbled on him in the archives in the central tiny arc of Jerusalem. The very early stage of my democrat. He had very interesting relationship with the Jewish Agency in Palestine, thirties and forties. We'll get to that. In. I realized that a lot of historical material about him usually the problem with writing about tribal leaders of his Tuchel is that they did not invite. So that didn't leave any historical records. But he was someone who happy because it was so influential and powerful he trusted many writings, and there's a lot of stock records about him written by British officials Zionist officials Americans and many explorers who visited his camps..

"We are delighted to have you with us on the Florida roundtable today. Thank you. I'm delighted to be. There was Sunday. Of course is the anniversary of the liberation of ostrich Birkenau the Nazi death camp that happened back in nineteen forty five. And this is the national holocaust remembrance Sunday. And how appropriate it is to be chatting with you. Before we get into all of these things Evelyn wanted to ask you to go ahead and take the first minute or so and just tell us a little bit about yourself, your personal background if you would. Sure. I was born in Argentina in the notification Tina in the very famous Jewish colonies established by the baron hairs in order to find a place for the persecuted Jews that came from the Ukraine and Russia and. And my father was an agricultural engineer for the Jewish colonization association. So he was sent to Argentina to double check those those cultural columnist, and it was nineteen thirty nine and saying God. Yeah. Right. Then they did not go back to Europe. And so I was born in Argentina. He was educated there and in. Year college education, I came to the United States, I attended Columbia University. And the media I started working for the Jewish Agency for Israel. I chair they Latin American department there. I was the director of stay insecure for cultural relations between Israel and Latin America and. I became our said the Representative of wheat sell the women's international Zionist organization, which is a social welfare organization that has that credit to the United Nations and the as one of the organizations that participates also in the umbrella that is the World Jewish Congress. And they I I was chair of the American section of the World Jewish Congress. And then they after serving three terms there was elected to be the chair of the North American region of the World Jewish Congress. So this is the I serve in that capacity right now on so now, you have referred to the World Jewish Congress as a sort of umbrella organization. Elaborate on that for us and the organization of the World Jewish Congress. I couldn't hear you. Sorry. It's not clear. What did you ask? I want you to elaborate and explained to us about the World Jewish Congress gang being an umbrella organization. Yes. Of course, you know, sensitive establishment in the nineteen forties. It has been the core. Mission of the World Jewish Congress to fight anti-semitism. Racism, religious, intolerance, and all kinds of patriots. Now, the Jewish Congress today represents the Jewish communities in seventy five pound three surround the world. And it is sold of parliament of the Jewish people. If you will. Visit the holocaust museum in Washington DC, you will find today there original stakes of the telegram that Dr Gerhard Reagan-era Representative of the World Jewish Congress. In nineteen forty two informing them Mary can and British government of the impending catastrophe the distraction of European jewelry. You will also find their all the requests of the doctor Riegner to the international Red Cross to take stand and head Jewish Cheryl to trick you cheese. But we know that does requests where to now what? Since then it has been our priority. The World Jewish Congress to fight anti-semitism in all knowledge forms. Now have how have we done through conferences seminars applications meetings with governmental representatives meeting said the United Nations meetings with politicians at Mia? It said there. But for the last few years, we see that hatred is disseminated through social media. So we had the World Jewish Congress. We are in the forefront of fighting anti semitism in the in the digital world in the digital platforms. We created an important campaign three years ago. It's called the we remember campaign that includes survivors, dignitaries celebrities and thousands of people around the world that the post a photograph of themselves behind a message and hashtag we remember. And then we send it over. When we started this campaign. We they go off having six million particip- participants six million being such a symbolic number for us. But we have reached six and three hundred twenty five million people in this third places of the world by using all these digital made the by using Twitter, Snapchat and Facebook this campaign is now in its third year. And it is time to culminate in what you said on January twenty seventh international holocaust remembrance day. Our studies show that holocaust denial and anti semitism are very much a pin. So showed me the there is a whole new generation that only communicate through this platform. So we have very grateful to to Twitter for having taken. A very responsible attitude and behavior. Wouldn't that better? We had the World Jewish Congress. We see antisemitic content on social media, we pointed out to Twitter, and they block and they take it down. They have therefore very very supportive of Fowler. We remember campaign, and they and they tweeted all over the world individual photographs that I mentioned and they headed past so to educate and combat the spread of hatred on social media. I would say that this now is very much a priority of the work of the World Jewish Congress. In addition, of course, to our presentation of as I say, they sent seventy five Jewish communities around the world, and we just had a very important international meeting where a Representative so all those communities gave report of the situation in their respective countries. Now, do you? The work that we do Evelyn. You were talking about heat spread on social media. Do you feel that there's been a sort of a rise of anti-semitism too much anti semitism in the world the past few years that you've had to really combat against? Yes. Our and our statistics show that there is a rise of in social media anti-semitism. And and that is because you know, they they they they social media now is it platform for an enormous amount of young people and the young generation uses it now, of course, we know that Dan. Anti-semitism and hatred of Jews is is not a new thing in Europe. Anti-semitism in gyro has a long cultural religious and violent history. The Spanish and Portuguese inquisition. Was it major antisemitic development? The rash on Ukrainian pogroms of the last century where major antisemitic occurrences did dry post trial in friends that brought about the famous cold. So did choose traitors kid the Jews. They were major antisemitic campaign, but the holocaust is so much more. The holocaust is the largest genocide ever perpetrated against our it.

"What I do in the book, by the way is take many of the actual historical events. And I just twist them a little bit too to tell my story. So there is a second World War America is not drawn into this war. There is a Pacific war which lasts for nineteen forty six. But America is no bombing of Pearl Harbor, and by the way, go you should know that in doing this research, I admit that you not we Japanese by did access some translation of Japanese historiographer, which indicates that the decision was almost made in the Japanese war councils, not the bomb Pearl Harbor, and I have this image of the Sembene nineteen forty one of American soldiers, son. Themselves on the deck of the USS, Arizona. So America is not drawn into this war that lasts six years. It is a second great war. But again, the Jewish component is a much smaller component than in the actual history. That's just a basic outline of some of the chronologies of the six year war. That's going nowhere in Europe until Hitler's assassinated. Yeah, you did say that you base your narrative is loosely based on on to revenge. And that is I'm assuming because you're really historian by trade and my question to you on this as how likely the alternative events that you'll describing to to happen actually happened all is the narrative in your book one hundred percent fantastical. Well, the smell test for any counterfactual history is its plausibility and. And there are rules to this game. In fact, if you back, for example, if you were to tell the story of the destruction of the the second temple, you cannot give the Jews Masada machine guns, unless you give the Romans machine guns, right some certain technological things. You can't ascribe it doesn't exist. I've been telling my audiences that I can't have window Wilkie run for president in nineteen forty four against rose. But he runs a nineteen forty because he dies before nineteen forty four. Okay. So plausible. So all the historical evidence that I bring is based upon some plausible scenarios that appear in real historical works. So let me give you two examples. There's a wonderful book very important book by political scientists his name was call slowing and it's called the twisted wrote Auschwitz in which he argues between nineteen. Thirty three and nineteen thirty nine or though Hitler committed to destruction of the Jews. It is very twisted road. They're all sorts of Turner tiv- or turn the pants that were explored, and we're taking and one of them is a well known dynamic call the transfer agreement to have our agreement between the Jewish Agency for Palestine and the Nazis which made possible for Jews to get out of Germany in the mid thirties. Go to Palestine and have some of the resources transferred to Palestine. So the leader of that that namic in the Nazi hierarchy was a man named how much shot S H ACH t he was by. No means a lover of Jews. He was an anti Semite, but he wasn't a resolute Nazi and in his dealings with Hitler in the nineteen thirties on the economic frontier. Often said to the Fuhrer what should I do with Jews in this? Or that economic sphere and Hitler tell him when it comes to economics. Do what you want is far as the German people are concerned. So in my story taking that real historical figure and his activities for five or six years in the early third rest, I have him. Now, put in charge of the Jewish question. He is a pragmatist. He has someone who's not ideologically committed to the destruction of the Jews, and he becomes a very important figure. So all I have to do once the war bogs down is have shot become a more important figure than he would be in real history and the other pieces the s s in it's early days, although committed to killing destruction of the Jews is more concerned early on with and this comes out of shortness book, political and other military opponents of the riot. So in my book that fear. Continues. And although the Jewish question is important. It is not the only the only problem which Hitler basis. So the nineteen thirty three dynamic continues to nineteen thirty nine..

"The White House and the president to rethink some of his more pointed rhetoric, it doesn't seem that it has caused them to rethink it at all they reject the notion that. The president has any responsibility regarding these acts, whether it's this act at the synagogue or the pipebombs that were Mel to kind of prominent Democrats and other public figures their argument, and Sarah Sanders has said that the the president is not responsible for the divisions in this country. And they kind of throw it back on the media about it. It was striking that when he went to Pittsburgh to not have any to not have the governor to not have the mayor to not have people on on either side of the out and under the congressional leaders, even the Republicans go with him. I think shows how kind of fraught the situation was and the fact that he was asked not to come via local officials who just said it was too soon. But he went anyway, and there were these protests when the community is seems is still reeling from what happened. So I think that the. The White House is moving ahead in pretty much the same way it always has. But there was push back on this show, you covered the White House. The president did talk about the need for people to essentially reject violence. He talked about the need for people to embrace civility and decency toward one another. And yet as you say he pointed to the media is being fault. He really in other appearances almost immediately on the campaign trail was willing to point to figures and actors that that he felt responsible for bad things in society. How do you in covering this reconcile those two strains of what the president had to say in recent days? For me. I think what I'm looking at this. It seems like the president. He has the words that you're supposed to say as president after an event happens. He will say we need to come together, we need to unify. And there should be no violence. In. And he, you know, and he will stick with a there should be no violence, but when it comes to going beyond that, and when you get to rallies, maybe not insulting people personally, or you know, maybe trying to extend an olive branch to people who he considers opponents to kinda cool down the rhetoric. He doesn't go that far. He will go to the line of saying this is you know, this is unacceptable. We should come together. But he doesn't go beyond that to really change his behavior or to just kind of cool things down by reaching out to people on the other side is just not his nature is not what he does check beat the president often likes to make everything about himself. But in this case, the president is aids say look he didn't commit new violence here. And in fact, the accused shooter in Pittsburgh with somebody who said the president didn't go far enough on certain things was too much under the influence of of. Jews as we understand it from social media postings. Isn't it to be fair? The president isn't there some truth to that? I mean, how much would wanna sign a responsibility for the president for actions that he had physically nothing to do with. Well, you know, there are comforts in literal mindedness, and I suppose that would be an example. But I think Pittsburgh protester had it. Right. When he said, he had quote, no doubt of the dotted line between the president's rhetoric and violence, a dotted line, not a strong, not a single line. And and after all what we're what was the president talking about. He was talking about this caravan in coming up through Mexico, it you were saying it was funded by George Soros. That is an antisemitic trope thriving in authority -tarian places in Europe. And the president is still at it. So he was at he was saying that and this this man who does murderer was was acting against that idea of the immigrants coming in the caravan. And there was a Jewish Agency that would help to settle them. And do you know help them up? In other words, he was directly in line with the president's rhetoric. This this caravan a Jewish funding it they're going to set the Jews are going to settle the people boom, you know, dotted line dotted line right there. I want to take a call from owed. Ed calling from Grafton, Massachusetts. Okay, go. Please. Go ahead..

"Murder could have been completely prevented if the tree of life synagogue, had just one armed guard somewhere on the premises. This is a case where they had an armed guard inside they might have been able to stop him immediately, Donald Trump and should have just said hearts and prayers go out for the people, Pittsburgh and everybody involved. He kept his mouth shut you felt like he was blaming this community. He xactly what it felt like it's a stabbing toback, Stephen Halley. There said that his family refused. A condolence visit from the president today. Air Force One was on the ground for over three hours in Pittsburgh today. But the president spent only thirteen minutes in the tree of life synagogue, where they were welcomed by rabbi Jeffrey Meyers who did not invite the president to come to Pittsburgh. But had always publicly said that he would welcome the president to visit the synagogue, if the president did decide to come to Pittsburgh, thousands of people filled. The streets of the squirrel hill neighborhood. Making maneuvers challenging for the presidential motorcade Ariel Cohen, one of the organizers of the protest told buzzfeed's, Julie, rhinestone he's fostered an administration of white supremacy. And he is not welcome here. In our time of mourning the protest was filled with families of all ages grieving and joining together to say that the president of the United States is part of the problem that they are now dealing with in. What always was peaceful neighborhood of squirrel hill, the president intensified the local resistance to his visit this morning when he made an inane public announcement in an interview saying falsely that he could end birthright citizenship in the United States by executive order. That is a lie. The right of every baby. Born in the United States to be a citizen of the United States is guaranteed in the constitution. It would take a constitutional amendment to change that the Republican speaker of the house instantly said the president's statement was false Paul Ryan said emphatic. You obviously cannot do that you cannot end birthright citizenship with an executive order. The president obviously made the statement as a campaign statement that was campaigning today. The president knows it's impossible to do this by executive order, but he wants to energize his most hardcore anti immigrant supporters. Some of whom might not think that Donald Trump has been anti immigrant enough in his first two years as president since Donald Trump has not built one foot of the wall that he promised them. He would build the mass murderer who went into the tree of life synagogue on Saturday believed Donald Trump was not doing enough to stop immigration. And that's why. That's why he wanted to kill Jews because he believed that the Jews at the tree of life synagogue were supporting the arrival of immigrants who he believed were coming here to kill us. And that is what Donald Trump told that mass murderer was happening. Donald Trump told him and all of us that murderers are coming across the southern border, rapists, gang members animals. He calls them murdering gang members and Middle Eastern terrorists are coming to get us across the southern border. Donald Trump has been pouring that message into the brain of that mass murderer for years now and on Saturday, the mass murderers final social media post before he headed for the tree of life synagogue with his assault rifle and three handguns said this about the Hebrew immigrant aid society highest likes to bring invaders in the killer people I can't sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics. I'm going in. And so he went in with his assault rifle and so- Pittsburgh's Jewish community buried four today. They will bury seven more and today in Pittsburgh, the leader of highest said that the presence lie this morning about ending birthright citizenship by executive order was exactly the kind of thing that the mass murderer must have been very very happy to hear today. Back here in Pittsburgh. The head of the Jewish Agency that protects refugees says the president's announcement is offensive at ignores that the gunman's hatred went beyond anti-semitism. This murderer was trying to check more than one box. He checked the box. But he also check the refugee hate box in the immigrant hate box. Joining us now from Pittsburgh is Tammy helps one of the people who protested the president's visit today, a Tim thank you very much for.

"From NPR and WB. You are doubt rather than young. It's here. Now, the alleged gunman behind Saturday's deadly synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh is due to phase hate crime and possible domestic terrorism charges today after eleven people died in that synagogue on Saturday and at that, huge interfaith vigil for the victims last night. Pittsburgh's mayor Bill Peduto vowed to fight back against the hate the shooting represented. We will drive anti-semitism in the eight of any people back to the basement on their computer in a way from the open discussions and dialogues around the city around the state and around this country on the herring as a reporter with w ES. Hey in Pittsburgh on Lee. How does it seem to you there? There is a collective sense of real profound grief here. People are very shaken up still and feeling deep pain. But there's also a. Real sense of resolve in unity and people pulling together to support each other across faiths and identities and really expressing that support. Both in words and actions really remarkable thing that's been reported is that there are Muslim organizations in the community who have raised over one hundred thousand dollars to help support victims and affected people here. And there were Muslim leaders at that visual last night, thousands of the pictures from there were unbelievable packed inside. And then under umbrellas outside the city, you know, crying. But how are the the injured doing? We mentioned eleven killed six more wounded four of them still in the hospital any sense of their condition. Yes. So we do have some reports from the university of Pittsburgh medical center, which is treating patients they say on their Twitter account that two of. The worshippers are either stable or critical condition. A sixty one year old female is in stable condition. A seventy year old male is in critical condition, and there are two officers who are still being treated there's a fifty five year old male officer. He's in stable condition in a forty year old male officer is in critical condition. Those officers confronted Robert Bowers the alleged gunman as he was leaving the synagogue drove him back in and had that exchange with him in which they were wounded, by the way. So what are people saying about something President Trump said, which was that if only the synagogue had had a security officer one thinks that if four heavily armed police officers couldn't stop this man, a security officer might not been have been able to. But what are people there saying, they're responding with deep skepticism and anger in some instances mayor Peduto himself has repudiate. Ated that statement saying that we need to focus on the irrational thoughts or behavior that leads to the dangers that we saw on Saturday as opposed to trying to just fight those dangers with more weapons at the same time. He does express support for limiting the sales of guns. Another aspect of the skepticism is that there's a police station just a couple of blocks from the tree of life synagogue officers were on scene within minutes. They were very armed. And they still were injured and this gunman this alleged gunman still killed eleven people and injured six now. And he had reportedly an air fifteen summit automatic rifle three Glock handguns, according to the federal criminal complaint. He told law enforcement officers, I just want to kill Jews. But also had other concerns that were an enraging of it seems well, what do we know about him? We know that he was quite active on social media leading up to the shooting and facts, it's been reported that just five minutes before police were dispatched to the scene that he posted on gab dot com, and essentially his sentiments leading up to this incident was that he believed that Jewish people were at fault for for supporting the caravan of migrants making its way north from Central America. He characterize those migrants as invaders and he disparaged refugee resettlement agencies, including the Jewish organization highest for assisting them the Jewish Agency for a to migrants. Look you mentioned that he spoke on gab dot com. This is the right wing kind of online bulletin board. He where he pretty much said ongoing in so people there would've least suspected that. He was going to go do something. There are a lot of questions about that website. But in the meantime, federal process. Shooters say they intend to pursue the death penalty. So we will see more of this fold, and and what about the synagogue will..
