In so Darla, are you working on a shirt right now? Oh. Yes. I am tell me a little bit about it and describe exactly what a ribbon shirt is. Okay ribbon shirt is It expresses our traditional values, our culture, and It. To me, it came from the From just expressing how we dress if from the from the very beginning when we when the settlers, King? They had to You know they still had powwows, they still socialize. they weren't. It was not a contest then. But they still gathered and celebrate it, and so as the materials cain the cotton, they just they started making their own been shirt. And right now, I'm making a shirt that. That is coming from. last names Likud the names. And it's rain and lightning. And I'm putting I'm making a shirt with lightning in ring on it along with the ribbons and along with. The quote, the Su- art, the geometric designs. And the top part is is dark and the in it lightens up as it goes down. So the top part looks like a thunderstorm well and and the bottom looks like it's. It's turning into clear skies. Well. You know just seeing the story that you're hearing about. The story that you're telling through fabric is really exciting. I think when we think about these different things that we wear today, we're focusing in on ribbon shirts, but there's a lot that connects when we think about what goes into our identity, and often what we put on as clothing is a part of that, and so Darla are totally taken into that arena of expressing in celebrating identity and for you to be able to do this with the fabric, how does that? Make you feel? It makes me feel It makes me feel really good to see the end result in fact I'm. I kind of feel like. I'm a separate person, then my skills. And I look back and I are step back in I'll take a look at what I've made and I'm really an all myself. Because sewing shirts is not always an easy things especially around those callers boy, those callers Darla. For you when you get sewing or you start cutting things out and you start, you know forcing how all of this is GonNa come together? What's your favorite part? My favorite part is the creative part, which is the hardest part The style of the shirt varies from from. You know why that ordering it, what they're gonNA use it for if they're gonNA, use it for graduation our. Regalia. Or Just to have. I feel like there's or our presenter someone who's speaking and standing in front of a crowd, and so I have to take all that into consideration. And then I, a lot of times I. I I always communicate with them. I mean hundred percent. You know, what do you have in mind and I let them express their local name? Are. Their ancestors. And I in most likely, they wanNA bring that out. And so I let them know that's what I'm here for and I, get every I get. As. Much information as I can. with colors and with With their, vision. And then and then I meet them halfway and then I'll I'll come up with by my what I my knowledge. and. Then I you know, and so everything I make is so unique. And so you put that Darla flair in there Yes, I do. Very. Nice. In Darla. How many shirts do you think you've made over? Your. Life. Oh, I. Probably made about. I I guess they might have made about.

U.S. Air Force Launches Contest to Replace the B-52 Bomber’s Engine
"Here to talk about bombers. There is news just breaking as of May nineteenth the US Air Force kicked off a three way competition to reengineer. Its entire seventy six aircraft. Be Fifty two fleet and the the competitions going to be underway. They just released a request for proposals. Steve can you talk about what the Air Force is looking for? And what that means for the companies involved. Yes so on Tuesday evening or Tuesday late afternoon the Air Force released the our fee to start Step two of the engine source election the replacement for the Beef at T.F. Thirty Three's which You know design. That goes back about sixty years. And you've got three companies in the competition. Rolls Royce with the VR seventy five. Which for this competition. They're calling the effluent thirty We also have the engine. That's on the global six thousand that The Air Force is flying as as the e eleven As a communications relay. Pratt Whitney is competing with the w eight hundred which is another business jet engine and you've got Ge that has said that they are looking at offering either or both of the CF. Thirty four engine actually started out with the. A ten In still in service with the ten. But it's gone onto power of regional jets and Also it's passport engine. Which is the propulsion system on the bombard? Da Global Seven thousand business jet. So those are the those are the three competitions with air forces looking for is a new propulsion system. That as what what they say is basically the T.F. Thirty-three has kind of come to the end of its life beyond twenty thirty. They don't really see. You're very viable way of sustaining it. And keeping it in service. But of course they've decided that the B fifty two will continue operating beyond twenty fifty so they need something under the wings of those aircraft. Keep them flying and they're looking for something that it can extend the range by twenty five percent that can add a bunch of loiter time to the B fifty two's mission set and They won't cost too much and that they can integrate as quickly as possible. So that's that's where we are with the competition Steve Guy. Can you tell us a little bit of it? Gives us a little more sense of the engines? That will be competing. Hard High State Yeah I it's fascinating to me that this is competition is underway. It's it's really difficult to believe that in the early two thousands that they looked at this in the nineteen seventies even looked. This goes back a long way. Pratt and Whitney originally proposed a you know of the upgrades the T.F. Thirty three which courses based on the original J. Three engine that Pratt went. They developed some back in the in the late. Fifties and early sixties. Rolls Royce of course came really close more recently With an offbeat till Evan Option in the mid. Nineteen nineties with with Boeing as a team So it's been an ongoing thing but that was was four engines to replace AIDS so this is different. Because you've got eight engines. Replace eight engine. So how could that possibly work? So the the reason it can work is that over the last fifty years which is really the length of the of this program The original engine. If it's hard to imagine this but the actual fan amit served Pratt and Whitney engine that the the one that's on the inevitable at thirty three is about fifty inches the inlet itself and yet the bypass ratio. Which is you know the key parameter ready for the performance of this Is Only one point. Four three two one but all of the engines that nabbing pushed through for this replacement here. We are fifty years later. They're all between four point. Two to five point five to one bypass ratio but basically in the same diamonds and that reflects the fact that all those cores of shrunk at in you've got much more efficient fan flow and that so here you are bringing in these twenty-first-century engines however just to clarify that One of those engines at state mentioned. Jeez pushing forward with the CF thirty four DASH sandwiches one option. That engine actually will be this year celebrating. I believe it's twenty eight anniversary so it's it's not a near engine itself. Likud's relative to what it's replacing it still a youngster. Really Oli others estate mentioned on new business jet engines up just a little bit of sort of back of the envelope. Calculation and based on the published data that we've got. It's quite interesting. You look at the actual weight that bear way to each of these engines and do a quick so a calculation it at the moment they the tip thirty three. The ship said of bear engines weighs about thirty five thousand pounds. That's just mean a mechanical gear on on the on the pylon not including the case sings or even sometimes accessories. If you look at the calculated waits for the others the passport which is the other g engine would actually weigh slightly more about thirty six thousand the prod engine the Peterloo eight hundred which state mentioned which is the The J. Six hundred five hundred engine is sly is actually the lowest just under twenty five thousand. Pansy got an interesting calculation going on that but basically they're all within about three inches of each other in terms of inlet diameter all within a few hundred pounds thrust so it's very complicated competition and a very interesting calculus that the Athol is GonNa have to go through.

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

Lessons From Surah Qaf Ustadh Irshad Hussain: Patience In This Time Of Crisis
"So shallow. We're going to be taking three key lessons from this raw. They shall. We can reflect on in our lives looking at the current situation around us firstly. Unbelievable that we're in a month ago. If you'd said there were in the majority of the world is going to be on the lockdown with massive changes to our social economical financial structure in in this way it would be unbelievable likewise beginning to. Ceuta about something else that. The disbelievers found unbelievable. That's the day of judgement they said had shown a job. This is a strange thing that would die. Become dust That's far preposition. So so this aspect of denying in here here are in a hair after it was president is present now so so that a lot he says to us that have seen the creation around them and would that they can evidences of how the resurrection wants to focus on. We need to use. We need to be able to look at the world around us to make changes to our lives. So let's as a Falungong summer focus. I've seen the heavens. If trump with him how we have made it how beautified did does know and earth how spread out. I'm throwing mountains. We put opponent every different type of punt and then he says that this is a with Vikram Likud Ogden Muneeb. It's a is a way by which a person he's able to see from blindness to to light and it's a reminder for him for every slave whose Mooney Mooney is one who's going to La going back to his his his his focus in life which is to which is to please allow us to to think how can improve myself. Haakan Puma wishing he's always you looking to make a sentence is returning back to? This is the first lesson. Don't we should focus upon and the second key lesson otake call for us. Today is how a law he informs US IN THIS SURA. In this chapter the porcine will decide. Every Friday morning at Pfizer. To remind himself in the congregation is the is how how how hold us in account for the day of judgement and there's a number of ways he mentioned in the sewer in one thing he says what Insana were not monsters will be here not enough so that very recreated man we know what his own soul whispered himself that there's nothing that we think about except that he knows that he say's colon he doesn't say any word except with him is an angel writing away record everything. Nothing is missing along. And then he talks about death. The thing that we fair it talks about the the blowing of the Great Hoon and then how people were driven unless as that. This is the event that people were in Hoffler on in Hillis of look at half Latin Hazza but today we have exposes he can see clearly and the green a the the agenda is five evil. He will this point lead. Try to save himself. You would say Robin Emma value to WHO I didn't call them to become misguided but he himself was misguided so yes he whispered away yes Austrian wishes away but in today's up to us a choice knowing that there's a there's going to be uncountable Which there's no escape so when he's talking to all the way over to say tim say to them that similar the don't argue in front of me because the water's going forth so he soloist. Say That so him and the Korean for Japan so the Boston fire because for every this believer who was reject food obstinate and arrogant. He knew the truth but he wasn't willing to listen but all this accountability is based on the fact that he doesn't do any zoom. Do any transgression. So this is the second aspect I wish to focus upon. The Accountability of us for that day is going to be perfect and the final key lesson is how to prepare for the digital pursuit and and they're in essence three key versus. Osias to focus on I as an how many people before them did. We destroy who are struggling and they. They're great houses and buildings and the gardens in the world but now they go do snowscape for them unless say he's very in that there is an admonition for the one who hasn't hot so we have a clean heart the we can see our history learned from it because history repeats itself or Cassano. Huish and he'd or he puts forth attentive hair really trying to listen trying to understand so if a person contemplates reflects on life it will help to pay for the day of judgement. Because he's he history repeats itself. Secondly says flustered al-Amaya coon with some bit hungrier. Bec- that have patience upon what they say and grow for you load in the morning and in the evenings so part of preparing for the day of judgement is being patient patient. Even in this time of difficulty. We're we're right now we're going to be. We're going to be stressed in terms of finances. Our social lives all the things that we you should do and there are some people who go to simply Craig by. Let's say be patient

"So the deal is that Netanyahu will remain prime minister for another eighteen months a year and a half at which time Gance presumably would take the role and also in the meantime guns would be the speaker of the Knesset they can hold more than one job there which is kind of remarkable really and the foreign minister are equivalent of course was secretary state another member of the blue and white party who happens to be a fairly conservative member the blue and white party who did not want the Arab parties involved in the coalition still the blue and white former Likud or Likud type he will be the defense minister in so they brought in the Likud they brought in some of these what were blown white types they brought in some of the labor party they brought into the religious parties it looks like they're about to have a government and so guts was just voted in as the speaker of the Knesset so the process is is underway he'll service foreign minister for eighteen months under the terms of this reported deal Netanyahu will serve as prime minister for eighteen months yes so there's an interesting point here that I want to raise as well the legal immunity a legal system in Israel utterly out of control the courts are out of control the attorney general's how to control the police who work for the Attorney General prosecutors they're out of control basically the courts run the country the Supreme Court in particular they get involved in all these political decisions and disputes among the parties and candidates which our courts at least try not and of course they're extremely liberal one of the things that young has been trying to do and I guess well to put it off for a while is to get his hands around this this force and break it up so Israel is more of a the parliamentary democracy then a judicial and legal tyranny and that's one of the reasons this Attorney General the prosecutors the investigators in the courts have been so hostile to Netanyahu is trying to actually bring the state of Israel back to to to what it was expected to be so here's my question they've got the corona virus spreading throughout their stay in the country they now have the unity government finally after three elections it's taken more than a year really it's so what's this Attorney General gonna do go forward with these bogus charges against the prime minister now that he has a unity government in the middle of a crisis one of these courts in Israel going to do break up the government now pretty remarkable Netanyahu is an absolute genius he was counted out and counted out and counted out.

I just saw people playing on. Mtv knows like man. I want to do that so then when the time came I I gotta get started taking lessons for just a few months and then I was in a music store once waiting for my lesson in there was based on the wall and I was like. What's that and the guys who get the Bass Guitar and I? I had no idea what that was. It was like I wanNA check that out so as I'm waiting for my guitar lesson I start playing this basin it immediately just like wow like this instrument. This is what I WANNA play. Wow that's who's who's kind of like that. Yeah what what was it? Because there was only four strings would they because they were thicker the vibrations the lower frequency? I can't explain it. It's just like I started playing it and just really dug it. I was like wow. This thing's really cool like and then I kind of learned what it is and what its function isn't a band and Yeah just started taking lessons on one of those i. I was a caddy at the time. Saved up some money caddying at the golf course and bought a Kramer Bass Kramer Duke Bass Guitar. Oh Yeah that was in Norwalk Connecticut. You probably know where that is your from. Long Island right absolutely now not too far away. Yeah all right. So then what brought you down to Miami and eventually over here. Well I've you know pretty soon got pretty serious about it like I had my high school garage band jam on. Know Van. Halen led Zeppelin stuff like that. Then my family moved to Cleveland. Ohio and I was kind of thrust into all the all the groups in the school. Like in the music program like the Renault Bass players so I got thrust into jazz band concert band marching band. Because they didn't have Tubas so I played in marching band with a wireless and then look would do play in the pit orchestra for the musicals. They'd have it high school so I was just kind of thrust into all these situations that that made me a better musician you know I had to. I had to learn to read ahead to to play jazz. I had to learn. You know all all that kind of stuff you know. Kinda made me get serious about music and then started auditioning for other stuff around Cleveland. I played in this like all state jazz band called Ohio Jazz Orchestra for Youth and got my ass kicked in that really like you know. Made Me Kinda step up and shed a lot and that's a trip. How about half of the right? Yeah Yeah so. How did you learn how to read and and play changes and whatnot and jazz because you're going from rock and Roll Jazz? That's a transition. Oh yeah totally. I was a metal head before I did that. Likud I moved to Cleveland. I was like into thrash metal and stuff like that and like you know I started taking theory in the in the high school band director was was like. Oh you know we need to play jazz. Been and all this stuff and I'd never played any of that stuff before I had never read anything so I was just thrust into it and I had to learn and I got Got A teacher in Cleveland and helped me start reading and I got some reading books and practised reading. You know it was just like trial by fire. Sink or swim. You know if there's something that I couldn't figure out how to like take it home and figure it out you know and this is the days before the Internet Youtube to just look it up. Oh no I just had to kind of learn from books and learn from a teacher and just learn about putting the hours in just by you know Kinda practicing reading rhythms and reading notes and the more I did that in the more reading situations I got put into Just kind of the better I got at it and it was a very valuable skill that I was fortunate enough to learn on right. Incredible did you ever use the clap out? The rhythms before is doesn't that table. I remember I would just sit in bed with my book and like a flashlight and a pencil and I would just kind of like nod my head to the quarter note just tap out. The rhythms can only do that for a half hour before bed. You know things like that or if I if I had time where I didn't have my base with me and I couldn't like actually practice do that. Yeah just tap out the rhythms just to Kinda learn how to read rhythms. I talk about that all the time to this day. I'll be sitting on the airplane writing a chart totally an IPAD and you can just tap it out and you can count through it and slow it down right. Yeah I do that all the time just like on planes. Because that's like you know downtime. You have a lot of times in between gigs or whatever and you're like okay. We'll I can use. I can use this three hour flight to chart out tunes for the next GIG. That's right and that's all the time. Yeah Yeah we're GONNA come back to that actually so then you go to. Um so which is kind of good because you start in Jazz Ban. You get your feet wet. Yeah I got more serious a- more serious with jazz as time went on like I said I I was in that Ohio Jazz Orchestra for youth with a lot of real great players from local high schools. I did that and then I went to a interlocken center for the arts for two summer programs and then ended up staying for my senior year of High School Eight of Boarding School. It's just an arts boarding school where everybody's there to get just better at their craft. That's along we. There was there for years senior year so I did two summers and then stayed around for my senior year of high school. Then I went to University of Miami. That's immersive though that. That's Oh man. It was great idea. Yeah it really was because I was with a lot of like minded people all the time you know aside from our on. Sambas that we were in our classes. We jam constantly. You know late at night early in the morning like you're with a bunch of people that just want to play and that just really head start you know just putting in that many hours playing those very fortunate to have been able to do that okay. So that got you prepped for. Yeah then I went to Miami. Miami was the only school I auditioned for. I You know I was. I was an electric bass player. Never really got into the upright thing. A lot of other schools that have jazz programs. Were a little bit more traditional big bandy. You know to where like I couldn't really just be an electric bass player and you go there. Really my options were Miami Berkeley or am I and Miami just seemed to be the right program at the time but you didn't even apply to the others. I didn't I just. I applied auditioned addition to Miami. Got Accepted and that was it. Bam So my choice easy. That's awesome just went yet just went for one school. Yeah what was that like? It's great you've completed your yeah. I did for years. I did take a year off after freshman year. I just kind of wanted like takes time off and process everything because I I've been going pretty intensely for a while with with You know the the the summer jazz program I was in and then interlocken for a year and then after that I did a cruise ship for for the summer. Then I went to Miami for freshman year and It was just a ton of intense shedding for years. And I really just kinda needed to take time away from that just process it so I took a year off after Freshman Year. I did a cruise ship Gig for six on states. Saved up some money practice my ass off but also you know partied quite a bit simple. Do on. Cruise ships brilliant. Yeah just kind of wanted just. I just needed a year to Kinda like SORTA CATCH UP PROCESS. Right relaxed a little bit as well. I feel just like a lot of information intel. It was really practicing a lot back then. To right Yeah so took that year off and then went back and finished and it was great. It was a great program a lot of great players. I played in a lot of bands and just took in a lot of information and it was. It was
Food Safety and Sanitation
"Just keeping people engaged Try and keep your mind engage. We hope people still try and get that workout in at home. Try and eat healthy even though you might WanNa go to the comfort food. And that's why Debbie is here to tell you no don't go for that can't go for the fruits and vegetables But also how to prepare this stuff. So let's jump into it here. In general what do we need to keep in mind regarding just food and illness in general and maybe specifically with this cove in nineteen virus Well there are thinking about your food that they're way more health benefits than there are possible. Risks Associated with consuming. What's available in the stores now? If you think of good helpful quality food that can keep your immune system running optimally because it gives you you know proteins vitamins minerals probiotics by chemicals and those bolster a good defense to infection. I mean specifically you need to try and get vitamins. A the bullet acid. That's B. Vitamin PLUS THE MINERALS IRON SELENIUM ZINC. They're all involved in maintaining a robust commune system. I'd say supplements are a little bit different because I want to focus on food But right now there is kind of this big. You might see some things across the Internet promoting anything to treat or prevent The current cove in nineteen virus. The council for responsible nutrition just as Avoid those because they're they're just not and report him to the FBI. Their money grabs right. Just Yeah Yeah. Yeah absolutely right. Yeah well okay. So That's interesting. So what kind of mostly focused on gets the foods But I with the foods. What kind of foods are going to get you those vitamins? Well anything that you can get fresh produce right now is is wonderful if you look at So dark green leafy you're citrus for vitamin C. You've got your Iron from red meat and dried beans dried fruit Selenium Zinc those are mineral if you can also get from whole grains legumes Vitamin The little tougher There are some mushrooms if they've been exposed to You'd be light and Vitamin E. Get FROM NUTS OF VITAMIN? A precursor Beta carotene. You can get from orange prison and vegetables like butternut squash apricot. Oh of so things that are. Orange are the color orange not just oranges. Literally the that is the root word of if you think of Karachi annoyed and so carol carrot or have the same car you know so. Corrupt Noise are Beta Carotene. And that's great. I love that you mentioned legumes again. I think it's my favorite word and being it's a bean right to type of being Likud. Yeah good also umbrella peanut because technically yeah. I know I call them too. But they're technically elegant though nearly oh very interesting all right that that's an interesting little fun. Fact okay. So yeah so great. Okay so that's kind of where you can get some of those vitamins that you're looking for now and you know we are just talking before we went on the show that it's actually surprising in southern California. There's actually a good amount of fresh fruit and vegetables available like in the Gore stores. I was really surprised. I mean every shelf has cleaned out especially frozen food. But there's I found blueberries blackberries. Think you found you said you found some strawberries and bananas at the store. So it's very possible to get fresh fruit right now. If you go and items that were left you have to get a little creative. Maybe there's a Kohlrabi what do I do with that or you know like okay. There's been turnip but I'm going to basically learn what these are this point. Now it'd be like okay. I guess turn up. I'm going to find out if I like it Okay here's something that's big. I think people might be wondering as well. That may be eat a lot. Should they stop eating out at this point as far? I just WANNA say as far so to today happens to be the day that record and it's march eighteenth so other yesterday the Centers for Disease Control that there is currently no evidence to support transmission of the curve in nineteen virus associated with booth and A. Usda is not aware of any report of any illnesses about food or food packaging so Keeping that in mind that it's not spread through food so restaurants Grocery Deli counters delivery services. There's still taking measures to prevent any kind of Possible If they had a you know an ill Food Service Food Service worker and limiting contact between them and any food being prepared and an consumer like. They always do okay. They always had those kinds of systems in place. I would say that that right now. You Know I. It was a week ago. My kids wanted to go to a very well known buffet style restaurant and I passed that right now but and and those have shut down temporarily and many of my area restaurants there providing mobile ordering and certified pickup service so that contact is limited. And I think that's really good but what people may not be aware of. Is that in the food service industry. In restaurants. There are strict health codes and regulations that restaurants. Follow all the time like and that you might see in the window down the win a right. So they're yeah. They're always trying to address all right now. And that's interesting that there's like the curbside delivery and or or just delivery general and. I think that's kind of important even for how you know. Our economy like to keep some of these smaller food restaurants in business. Like if you do WANNA eat out. Patronize those people and do the curbside delivery. You don't have to go in and in many cases you can't go in now but this is obviously going to affect our economy with a lot of people Being out of work for a while. Anyway you can support. Don't Cook at home so you know. That's a reasonable option as of now as of today At least you know Information I get like from Harvard Health. That says That it's really really unlikely. And the exception to the role Than would be spread through food but it's also wise to discomfiture. Maybe having hot food so things that can be killed rather than going for uncooked food like salad sandwiches right now right. Yeah that makes sense that makes sense now. Is there when it comes to you? Know maybe going grocery shopping is canned food or frozen food safer than fresh right now. Would you say I wouldn't think so? Currently there's like I said there's no evidence of food or packaging being associated with transmission. Oh the the other. I'm GONNA say the other term for this Viruses the stars Kobe. To so in case I I mentioned that instead of my nose. Cova nineteen virus. But that's just another name for it anyway If it can survive on surfaces and objects like other viruses have. I mean every time you come home from the grocery store I always wipe down the top of you know my canned goods. There's Dutton stuff anyway and I wash all my fruits and vegetables. You WanNa do that anyway. It was just. It was just last week that the or this past week that the National Institute of Health Shared Research. The virus can laugh a twenty four hours on cardboard and like two or three days on plastic and seamless steel. So it's a surface. It can be disinfected just like those white And i do that when i bring my stuff. Out of the trunk now And then did you hear that thing. That was my phone. No no that's okay. That's right mean we're going to deal with that stuff. I have a toddler upstairs. That does not want to go down for a NAP right now. So it's all good up my groceries down when I bring them in from my trunk at least packages and the Bacher and stuff like that right now and all the time. Fresh fruit needs to be handled with appropriate hygiene. And always. So if you're doing pressure item Then choose things at this time. You know that. Have minimal handling like a whole apple. A BAG OF BREAD. A whole chicken that you're gonNA roast instead of the things that have. Had you know a lot of preparation into them like a Kim thousand sandwich or those things have already been okay? You know multiple ingredients chopping cut different surfaces and hands. And you know okay okay go for the basic raw ingredients okay and is it and you mentioned kind of washing when you get home you wash your food so is that that's like something critical to keep up at this point. Wash your food that is washable. And then when they cook everything. Fruits and vegetables definitely There are some that you can wash ahead of time as long as they dry but things that hold moisture like berries or mushrooms but you only want to wash those right before you use them so they don't right there and get you know molding and funny So I'm sorry Then what you do need to cook well as always Things that are generally perishable like you know meats and eggs and those things you need to cook to an internal temperature of one hundred and sixty five Fahrenheit just on average. I know some of the ranges. Oh one forty-five to you know when sixty and then of course you need to boil pasta bake potatoes those kinds of things that have to be cooked to be out all right like basically at this point in time like don't start getting interesting with like how you're going to consume a potatoes take a giant bite out of it like maybe cook it. I like. That's probably common sense approaches of how you normally do it but maybe just make sure you on that one. Wash your hands really. Well make sure your surfaces are cleaned then scrub your potato under cold running water and then you can cut chopping and prepare it. You're
Israel: third time lucky?
"There is possibly good news. At least four Israeli voters wearied of the regular trudge to the polling stations. They might not be obliged to vote for the fourth time in a year or so. This week's general election the third in eleven months appears to have been slightly more decisive than its two predecessors while nobody has an outright majority in the Knesset Prime Minister. Benjamin Netanyahu's conservative block on not far short of one failure to assemble a governing. Coalition from here would require rancor and chaos remarkable even by the standards of Israeli politics. This is also obviously provisionally. Good news for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu inasmuch as it looks like Benjamin Netanyahu will get to carry on being Israel's prime minister a job. He has already done longer than anyone else. In the country's history Netanyahu's Likud party won more votes than in September or in April last year. And turnout was actually up on the last couple of elections as for the bad news. There's a fair bit to go round breaking news to bring to Israel's attorney. General has indicted the prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu on multiple corruption charges varies the extremely imminent potential political and legal complication of a serving prime minister standing trial as things stand. Netanyahu is due before the beak in Jerusalem on March seventeenth to begin answering charges of fraud. Bribery and breach of trust go tonight. We are witnessing an attempted. Coup against a serving prime minister based on fabrications and a tainted biased investigative process in this tainted process. They weren't after the truth. They were after me. The investigators didn't pressure the witnesses. To tell the truth they crush them with threatening extortion to tell a lie above sutan biscuit. W meme Sheku. He may apply for a delay citing the imperative of forming a new government. But even if he gets one it likely won't be for long. Israel's judiciary is not known for its difference to politicians within the last decade one former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and one former president Mashi Katzav have served prison sentences after being convicted of various offenses. There appears to be also the further recession of any possibility anytime soon of a meaningful peace agreement with Israel Palestinian neighbors notwithstanding the diligent labours of US president. Donald Trump's son-in-law for a moment imagine a new reality in the Middle East imagine a bustling commercial and tourist centre in Gaza in the West Bank for international businesses. Come together and thrive whose vision for the region unveiled earlier. This year seems already to be regarded by all concerned as a sort of high-spirited indiscretion which everyone has agreed. It is best to discreetly. Forget the name of the Momma Nittany Univer me and my whole name but flew up naming the name today. I am announcing to apply with the formation of the next government Israeli sovereignty on the Jordan Valley and the northern dancy. Manila Netanyahu's latest election campaign. Bet Big on further Israeli expansion into the West Bank days before polls opened. He announced his intention to assume a plan. Long buried by international condemnation for three and a half thousand new settlers homes which would effectively connect the West Bank settlement of Malaya Dem- with Jerusalem. He may now also feel emboldened to act on previous threats to formally annex portions of Palestinian land and it is obviously a grim result for Israeli opposition to Benjamin Netanyahu and its present principal figurehead retired general and foam Israel. Defense Forces. Chief. Bennigan's is I told you one year ago I into politics because I feel for our internal unit reach prevail over every enemy time and time again by sticking together was being torn apart if an opposition cannot in three quick fire attempts finish off a tired belligerent and entitled Prime Minister Facing Serious Criminal charges a long and unflinching look in the mirror is probably overdue ahead of Netanyahu now lies the horse. Trading arm twisting and carrot dangling necessary to get his block from the fifty eight Knesset seats. It has to the sixty one. It needs to govern. He will probably find this possible. Even Benny Ganz has conceded that neither he nor anyone else in Israel fancies yet another trip to the polls indeed. It's not altogether impossible. That members of Gansters Liberal Cavan alliance or even Gansu himself may perceive long-term mileage in being seen to prioritize ability and agree to Netanyahu up in the short term in the immediate aftermath of this latest election defeat dance failed to reiterate his previous ironclad objection to serving a prime minister under indictment. However vidor Lieberman leader of the nationalist Yisrael Beiteinu party remains the potentially crucial kingmaker. And though he also says he doesn't want another election he doesn't want Netanyahu either Another possibly significant Straw in the wind a strong showing for the joint list an alliance principally representing Israel's Arab citizens the joint list. One Fifteen Knesset seats on Monday up to from September more than half a million Israelis voted for them including according to Joint Lewis Chairman. I'm an odor many Jews depressed. By Netanyahu's bellicose and nationalistic conservatism. Demagogues and populists often accidentally contrived to energize their opponents and catalyze new kinds of opposition. It's a long way off and may indeed never happen. But it would be something. If Benjamin Netanyahu's real legacy turned out to be a strengthened Israeli left united across sectarian lines
Netanyahu's future still uncertain after Israeli election
"Let's turn to Israel. This week is rarely voters went to the polls for the third time in a year. Yes a year So first of all of the results that ninety percent in the last time I checked prime minister bb. Netanyahu was winning and projected to win fifty nine seats in. Israel's parliament the Knesset so that's good news for bb because he's five or six seats ahead of any guns from the blue and white party whose his chief rival but it still not be enough to end this electoral purgatory citizens. And here's why so. Israel's system is not like ours. You don't win the election. And then you're in charge. You have to build a coalition that controls sixty one of the one hundred twenty seats in the Israeli Knesset in the last two elections and Netanyahu Angolans have failed in that coalition building task So now they're gonNA try again. Ben Is pretty depressing. That voters didn't care about the fact that Netanyahu is going to stand trial in a few weeks on corruption charges in fact. Bb has gained votes since the September elections so cool. It's also depressing for those of us. Who WANT A two states solution in Israel because both candidates out there talking about annexing the West Bank? Interestingly an alliance of Arab voters did well in selection and They're now the third biggest party in Israel. So That's interesting chaining dynamic but you know in the near future. I think a lot of people worried that Israel is careening towards a constitutional crisis or even a fourth election because bb is about to stand trial and will likely demagogue and say fake news and say it's a witch hunt to get him just like trump because they're the same person. Yeah and I feel like we've had the same conversation now. Three times And this question will be. Can he can form a coalition get to sixty votes He may need the help of avenue or Lieberman Israeli politician. Who's kind of become quite An ENEMY OF BBC. At least in in that case you know we could return to one of the formulas that we talked about in the fall. Some form of unity government or agreement where they rotate as prime minister's all this is pretty bleak because Israel can't break this logjam. Bbc poising their politics with increasingly extremist positions. You know we've evolved in the third election. All the way to the fish in the West Bank Each election it kind of gets worse in terms of BB's platform on the Palestinians It speaks Not just the polarization in Israeli society in that. Bbc has kind of a big media apparatus and demagogues the opposition. But also you know Benny. Gones is just not a good politician. You know for those who don't follow as closely like you know he's a former military guy kind of the centrist who could be a you know a safe space for a bunch of different parties but political talent like he he he didn't wasn't a natural communicator. And I think the only way for the CENTRE-LEFT WE'VE IN THE CENTER. I guess in Israel to really break through is that they're going to need someone with more political chops at some point. They're going to need a leader or you know grassroots movement combined with lear that they can overcome bb's support which is not a majority of the country but is a strong minority in enough to kind of hold the line here in prevents someone else like. Gods from winning so You know we could be headed towards a messy coalition politics in some bizarre unity government Tumbled over whether these indictments against bb go forward. In any event. I think the situation with the Palestinians is very grim And is really politics until bb can finally exit stage right here. And hopefully the center of the centre-left can get stronger leader. We're going to be kind of stuck in this place. Maybe they can borrow one of our. Amer candidates primary speaking of which Last week we talked about Bernie Sanders decision to skip the APEC conference. The Big Pro Israel lobby conference so At that that this weekend the Israeli ambassador to the UN Danny Danon said we don't want Sanders APEC. We don't want him in Israel. Anyone who calls our prime minister a racist either a liar. Ignorant fool or both which is very charming The CEO of a pack hard core also obliquely accused sanders of demonizing Israel. Nate that gave Mike Pence a platform to smear Bernie into Democrats side. Israel's enemies so it was nice of these folks to almost immediately prove that Bernie's fishing was a wise one. And I would suggest everyone listening that if you want a vibrant democratic Israel Checkout Jay Street. Yeah Yeah it to me. The the biggest problem here right is the the massive red carpet that they roll out every time for bb and his biggest goons and for like pants and Mike Pompeo and these guys and then you know they they have some democratic members of Congress. We've always gone to a pack. And they they try to claim. This broad bipartisan view of things. This is not on the level here. You know APEC wants to be able to put the bipartisan stamp of approval on itself while relentlessly over the last several years. Supporting the agenda of the Likud party in Israel and the Republican Party in the United States relentlessly attacking Barack Obama. Frankly putting us in this shitty situation that we're in where we pulled out of the Iran nuclear agreement so actively harming US interests with the end of the Iran nuclear agreement and then complaining that people don't show up at their conference. I mean come on guys like And then you know dunking on everybody because a bunch of other candidates like send videos like the. I hate to break it to you. The people send videos to a lot of things. Right also is a racist. I mean he's he's says racist things on the regular choice last laws that devalues human beings who happen to be Arab. Yeah yeah I mean and and every election we get this rhetoric about the Arabs voting is in an inherently bad when they are citizens of Israel. You know so Like I I'm I'm kind of you. Know over this debate We'll keep watching the election
Netanyahu pulls ahead but remains one seat shy of governing majority, exit polls suggest

Voting begins as Israel holds elections for third time in under a year
"Israelis go back to the polls today for the country's third election in a year this race remains too close to call according to last from opinion polls released Friday and Israel may well be headed for war political deadlock all of the final election polls show that neither prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu nor his rival body guns are projected to have the necessary seats to form a government but there are two interesting trends here worth keeping an eye on for election day first Netanyahu and his Likud party appear to have the momentum for most of this three month campaign Johnson is blue and white party were leading in the polls a week ago that appeared to change and we could take a slight lead the final round of polls just a few days ago showed them either holding on to that lead or back in a tie it is Likud's goal to keep the momentum going until the voting stops at ten PM local time on election day splendid Warren
"likud" Discussed on KNST AM 790
"Dislikes Netanyahu because he's this he's he's what is left the Likud party he wants to be this king maker power guide he basically has the support of secular Russian Jews who are relatively conservative you know he said the other day he is prepared to be in a coalition with Israel's left wing parties which are pro Palestinian he's prepared to be in a coalition with Israel's left wing parties so unless Likud supporters and others other parties others right of center come out in large numbers it's gonna be a tough night for Israel a tough night for those of us who love it my audience you as an example so it's a very very strange what's taking place but this guy Lieberman he's the svengali he's a disgrace he's the one who brought Israel to this point and you know what else is amazing to me they talk about this in Israel the greatest relationship Israel's ever had with the United States is occurring right now and all Netanyahu's opposition can think of is destroying Netanyahu rather than building on this relationship which is a pin **** in history that is you have this tiny little opening to do as much as you possibly can the United States it is your closest ally ever a little pin **** opportunity little bit of light that's it instead like in our own country the equivalent of the pelo C. types and Schumer types this fan golly types dragging down this prime minister and not only seek to defeat him seek to imprison him the left in the media are no different in Israel and in the United States in some ways much worse there's not conservative talk radio there's not fox except the satellite fox it's appalling Netanyahu is Israel's Churchill and the British were foolish enough to throw Churchill out after World War two let's see if the Israelis are smart as people say are there no more no smarter than most I'll be right back then.
"likud" Discussed on The CyberWire
"Like that. Iowa's caucuses over yet either. The Sanders campaign has said it will ask for a partial re canvass of that State's party results. According to the hill. The issues in Iowa have reminded many that this year's round of elections are likely to be anything but routine we checked in with Shannon Brewster from. At and T. cybersecurity cybersecurity for his insights on election security. I would say that election operations are done in a very decentralized way. The United States has pros and cons is right. I mean it creates a fragmented approach but it also makes it difficult for an external threat actor to attack those jurisdictions with a single campaign because because every operations different they're using different technologies they're bringing forward a different approach for the folks who have this task ahead of them. What sorta recommendations do you have it? What are some of the best practices for Specifically to securing elections I would bring forward three main points. That's a great question. I mean the first first thing you need to think about is what are my risks. And do I understand my attack surface right and secondly I would say you really WanNa WanNa think about. How do I bay sign a security program that is specifically applied to elections and don't overlook the basics you you know we we really get caught up sometimes in hearing about the threat actors the nation states but if you step back and consider what an election in is doing and what? It's there for you have to appreciate that public trust in the integrity election is really fundamental and and when it comes to that perception can be reality right so simple fundamental security basics that should be implemented when you're putting together a system them really shouldn't be overlooked because any breach of something fundamental like that could be just as devastating as an external threat actor and then the third thing I would say is be aware of the resources that are available through the H. S. Cyber Infrastructure Security Eighty that sits as a sub component under. DHS in some other the other resources is it can be taken advantage of through third parties to help you know baseline that program and build out a program that is maturing over time. You know it really strikes me. This is a collaborative process between not just the folks on the technical side of the House but those people who have to communicate the message out to the public Like you say for confidence in the In the elections themselves that these are the things that we're doing and you can You can rest assured that These elections are going to be valid. Absolutely that's absolutely right absolutely right and I would say if you approach it holistically. That is probably the best approach to be able to communicate that message that. You've you've taken a proactive approach. Using a security framework in baseline up program against DHS's is recommending nece- SF ZEF is an example. It's very simple framework to align to. You've got those five five areas right. Identify detect protect detect and respond. Recover so either aligning everything you're doing. holistically and not getting focused on one. Particular component of the operation is really fundamental that's Shannon Brewster from at and T.. CYBERSECURITY APPS are causing other parties and other countries problems to Haaretz reports that Israel's Israeli Likud party's unsecured elector APP uploaded and leaked names identification numbers and addresses of more than six million voters.

prime minister and will stand for reelection in the third election to sort this out I asked for Malcolm's help now comes the best I can do given the twists and turns of these last months there will be a third election the prime minister continues in place until after election and my memory is that the prime minister cannot be F. forced from office while he's prime minister despite the indictment says that all accurate Malcolm good evening to you good evening John well it's a little bit more complicated even than that at today's date the Attorney General who was appointed by Netanyahu and is a very honorable and straight guy came up with three indictments indictments in three cases but in some of the multiple indictments for fraud and misuse of power it cetera in involving berries companies in Israel wait to get media coverage we make promises in exchange for media coverage and the the election itself results as you know we're in cut inconclusive senator now had first shot no guns had a shot for a month and there are three weeks now between the time that god's returned the mandate to the president and the time they have to call elections so the there will be negotiations very tough negotiations whether to include it in you know in the next government whether or not to and if they can form a unity government they don't want to face the wrath of the voters of by calling another election which will be held probably in March mid March right now I have to say that it's it is increasingly likely that they'll have to go to an election Netanyahu a prime minister unlike ministers anybody was indicted in government has to resign except the prime minister because if he's found innocent prime minister can never come back the minister can always be reappointed so they built in this protection of the prime minister and it's not like we kill may or June that you'll have the announcement of the in the application of the actual indictment so there's enough time to hold an election where Nathaniel can still legally could into an election and they would have to work out internally so at what point he would have to step down or what may be temporarily and Mr sire who's the second most popular person in the could an ounce the ready that he's prepared to challenge Nathaniel for the leadership so on the election front we will see in the next couple of weeks in the

have to see how it plays out we welcome congressman laser Elton from the first district of New York a member of the house of representatives since twenty fifteen a very good evening to you congressman thank you for joining us we were just beginning to describe the challenges for democracy in Israel now we turn to the challenges for democracy in the United States thank you very much Malcolm tells me that you're working very hard about what appears to be an illogical the strangeness of the word outrage comes to mind about heritage abroad being returned from the power of the United States Malcolm up I said that correctly more or less but I'm sure he'll understand because he's been very involved especially most recently in regards to Yemen demanding the return of Jewish artifacts and the negotiations over the number memoranda of understanding which unfortunately United States assigning recognizing the claims of various countries in this regard Arab countries Z. can you help us understand how this came about that Jewish heritage is being claimed by strangers well gosh we have a great effort here in the United States Paul Packer is an individual who runs this commission here in the United States I would like to see the mandate of that effort increase because you have a lot of Americans here in the US with their heritage abroad in in many respects we're seeing it with many Americans with their Jewish heritage abroad and fighting for religious freedom protecting religious minorities and especially is is pointed out with regards the Yemen but other countries in that region there's more that we can do as Americans to fight for religious freedom to fight for religious minorities and to protect that heritage abroad for so many Americans who are proud to be here United States they love our country and at the same time they also want to do more to to help fight this fight elsewhere around the entire world how can help me how did this happen with all the sudden well it's actually not been so sudden and congressman Zeldin and a few of his colleagues have finally have really taken this battle on and it's true Mr Packers commission on heritage abroad which also works for Christians for other groups whose heritage is in danger to broad and it could be a cemetery can be other things but in this case you know the Jews and nine hundred thousand Jews were forced to leave Arab countries and left behind a great deal and some of them were and I'm able to get some out and now these countries are demanding that that be returned but also that the synagogue the prayer books the Torah scrolls others that are there with no Jewish populations and did use wanting to get it back to use in their communities the guy Arab governments are insisting that U. S. recognize their claim and find a way representatives Elton is that correct absolutely that this is this is going on in in in many countries of the fight takes on a different dynamics from a one aspect of this issue or one country to the to the next but we're we're seeing in different countries some governments are more cooperative than others we we're all familiar with over the course of the last few years with regards to a a cemetery that might get targeted where there are Jewish remains and there's a desire either locally by the municipality within one of these countries or a larger governmental initiative where they want to convert a cemetery to another purpose and if and if we as Americans are in helping to lead that efforts from here and working with allies the V. over these remains it did so it's not just it's not just property of people who are there in the region and and helping them fight against a threat that that they face but also for people who have passed in a decades and generations it past where where the cemeteries would be converted in the remains are are threatened so what we're seeing it take on many different aspects not just personal property or or real property but especially fighting for those who can't fight for themselves too many villains too little time Malcolm about the Palestinian terrorism act yes can you you boys support for the Palestinian national terrorism support prevention act which passed the house so this summer what what is being done to sanction supporters of Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad and what is the status of the process right now here we we really need to be doing more earlier in the summer there was a a resolution that was passed it was an important statement opposing the boycott divestment and sanctions movement but what happened was this is a resolution is that we woke up that next day and they were members such as myself in the house asking colleagues okay so what are we gonna do about it but there are other colleagues who felt like okay we pass this resolution we made a statement or hard work is done here there's nothing else for us to do let's move on to other issues and you that we have is we're seeing in real time right now in the in recent days Hamas which is a designated foreign terrorist organization Hamas with access to a certain social media platforms this is been a major issue for Twitter if Israel conducts a an operation that would it targets the the media effort of Hamas Hamas is able to immediately stand up it's media platform it's propaganda network through social media through Twitter which is a United States company and and especially what we've seen in recent days with Israel facing its most recent threat as a result of a decisive important action by Israel to target a leader responsible not just for attacks in the past against Israelis but also someone who would be looking to commit additional acts of terrorism I targeting Israel in the future so what we need to do is is provide more more means I to to station and I would even say starting corporation more so United States companies like social media companies that help them get their propaganda out their messages out through different platforms so whether it is legislatively through Congress actually passing legislation with teeth it's administratively as we have seen it in the recent days this past week were secretary palm pale on Monday may an important announcements to start a going in a a different a better direction than what we saw at the end of the Obama administration when you in security council resolution two three three four pass and then secretary Kerry gave a a long seventy eighty plus minute speech where he was lecturing Israel but giving a free pass to to the Palestinians we just need to hold out for what it is we want to be honest brokers and neutral arbiters and and some people believe that by being a neutral Arbor that means for some reason you can't be an honest broker called out for what it is provide more tools more teeth legislatively administratively how to stand with and strengthen our relationship that bond with our nation's greatest ally this beacon of hope and freedom in a dark region of the world there's more that Congress can be done the space specifically right now as it relates to Hamas and Palestinian geology congressman lease Seldon first district the state of New York.

And we're going to be talking about Johnny Daniels organization from the depths here. John a great friend of ours. He's born in London immigrated to Israel. Join the F and spent three years of service in the in the elite paratroopers unit he left with the rake of staff sergeant who served in the Israeli military, then he became chief of staff for the deputy speaker of the Knesset, I know Israelis don't like saying, this is not our congress. But if you thought about again is unicameral so if you were talking about the speaker like Nancy Pelosi type, this would be the number two closely like a Hoyer chief-of-staff, so some of highly involved in national politics. After their military service. You've worked with an organization called world Likud, which was to build support for the Likud party. Which Danny the the the now the UN ambassador from Israel to the US to the UN data denotes party, prime minister Netanyahu's party to bring support internationally and now Johnny's working with parliaments around the world, including in Poland organization called from the depths from the depths dot org. It is the only foundation run entirely by the lineal dealing with the issue of holocaust education, and it's not just about storytelling, but working with and supporting both holocaust survivors, and I think very important far Christian audience and the righteous among the nation Christians who risked their lives in these European countries to save Jews during the holocaust, Johnny is in the media all the time that media lot next week as the Israeli elections, go on from the depths dot org. We'll talk more about that. In just a minute. China's great to have you in the studio here. Thank you so much. It's such a pleasure to be here with you, Johnny. Let me ask you first as as Israeli involved in politics. I know that you like me you've got partisan bent to this. And we're open and honest about that. But what is it like in Israel, the reaction to President Trump will start with you recognize Jerusalem as the capital, what was that reaction? Like you for you. I mean, I think we have to understand that that really the, you know, Israel had such a halt time the eight years on the president of Ulm really did. It was a tricky and challenging time for his ready citizens physiology politicians and everybody felt in Israel. And I think President Trump come in everybody at the beginning was a little bit nervous. No, one was quite sure what direction take taken how maneuver will do. But the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital blew it out the puck. I mean, the support and the respect that is ratings have for President Trump standing up making that move is quite a mad so much legitimacy to the this is where your your your government is headquartered and the rest of the world would not recognize even where you were had your your nations. Happy. It'll even on our passports, and now that has changed and when the US did it we're now seeing other countries follow the US leave because our former ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley said we're watching now what countries do at the UN, and you won't keep getting our eight dollars. So you're seeing a lot of Latin American countries situa Merican countries also announcing that they're moving their embassies to Jerusalem. Yeah. I think that this thought to the process the that really has changed the dynamic of how the Middle East is again, you know, in all honesty, we didn't as his writings and his juice. We didn't need anybody to ten us that Jerusalem was all capital or give him right course. But the difference walls is that the standing up, and this recognition changed the way that the rest of the world views Jerusalem, and the recognition of all Hoda capital as the capital for all people because the anti Israel. If you want to call it anti Jewish and anti. Semantic? I kinda put them all together. Using Israel is just a a way of saying, gee without Saint Jew. But it's always about de legitimizing, so recognizing a capital light Jerusalem is about legitimizing it legitimises at like, you said, it's always been your capital, but internationally it which is important for Israel, the US backing saying, this is the real capital. And that's where we're putting our huge embassy. Yeah. And I think that this really was the point that that you know, I mean, definitely is righty. Started to stand up and say, hey, right. This this this is a game changer for us off the eight years of such struggle difficulty that we've really faced on the president of it wasn't an easy time. It was a very difficult time we saw antisemitism rising. And even today, we're seeing this anti Israel sentiment coming out of those eight years of President Obama to members of congress. And you see the president former president President Obama going standing with these PBS tweeting his proud of them comp Omar congressman Rashida to leave. I mean, both linked to the BBS move. It boycott of essays movement, Israel Ilhan, Omar was just tweeting blanket anti-semitism out and was even criticised by her own party. I say to you too. I wanna point out pre this wasn't like Donald Trump had the first chance of doing this with Israel to recognize Jerusalem. Previous presidents. I don't even know how far maybe going back. Many decades have had the congressional authority to to immediately recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital Noah did it until Donald Trump became friends with fifty years if. More than fifty years, and I would say just specifically Jordan on the Golan Heights a designation as well that dates all the way back to Gerald Ford where it is the stated statutory position of the added states that goal on heights is a part of Israel. And yet it took to this administration to do it. And look I would just echo on the conversation. You just had with Johnny. Because when we have said this for a long time, Jordan, the United States lead the leads the world follows, but there is a whole slew of issues inside the United Nations where there's been an opportunity to do that this administration was the first one to do it. I think off the top of my head of vetos at the Security Council. I think about opposition to anti Israel resolutions. I think of the Human Rights Council withdraw I think about the the conditioning the the US dollars foreign aid on support for Israel the United Nations. Jordan, there's a whole slew of issues where the policy the stated policy of the United States may have been in the correct place for a long time. But it was this administration that finally put it inside the president back in March twenty sixteen on the campaign trail. Take a listen to his promise. We will move the American embassy to the turtles capital of the Jewish people Jerusalem. So he makes good.
