"Malcolm Hoenlein. I'm gonna go very fast. Malcolm too, many victims again visited baby Netanyahu when he was finance minister many years ago before it became prime minister. It was dusty office in an Israeli office building for the government. I've flown in at the airport the old airport that was piecemeal made up of different parts fit together. Seven forty seven sitting on the tarmac, no service and even even the electric city. Yeah, they had electric city, but it was. It was it was the airport of a second class state. Their state even Netanyahu took on those airport unions along with the rest of the unions that were the remnant of socialist utopian nonsense from Europe from seventy years before he took them on. And he was responsible or part of the leadership that renovated Isreaeli economy. So that I saw over the ten years I've been going there fifteen years more than seventeen years. It is now a shopper's paradise with an enormous amount of startups not just in Silicon Valley, but also far enormous and all of that is under Netanyahu's walked that's why he won the election. One more point our friend Elin Suleymanov, the Basseterre from Azerbaijan to the United States. Our good friend makes the point to Deseret news that those who grew up under socialism, and he did he was in Moscow university when the Soviet Union Philip. Part came home to his family. Those of us who grew up under socialism. No that it's the worst possible outcome for your family that it is. It means you failed as the state to go. I make that point. I won't connected to the the pitter-patter this going on right now in American politics, but as Silliman off nose and Netanyahu knows and Malcolm Hoenlein knows. That's my point. Now, tell me about Airbnb Airbnb, which we have covered their initial decisions that we're going to remove those things in the West Bank, the Jewish list things in a discriminatory measure that brought about four lawsuits and all sorts of reactions and have a dozen governors and many of the legislatures in the United States saying that they would no longer do business because of this decision picking one place in the whole world. Well to say that this was a tremendous victory in Airbnb came to its senses dropped the policy announced that it will list, all Jewish and Arab. Postings from forever being be and that the prophets. They are going to give to worldwide to people in need good worthy causes and will impose that policy in other places as well, they have to say it came out in a strong statement against and and said that they would not support boycotts of Israel. It put the issue to rest, and they ought to be as much as we regret. The initial decision. We've welcomed this decision to the BS movement which clincal as claim to so many victories that have nothing to do with and policies that would not based on it. This was a big setback and well done Malcolm to you in the conference while many all right now. Bess? She was a probe private probe launched by Israel. It was in orbit around the moon, and it is now failed to resurface ninety percents. Success? Ninety percent success remarkable effort. Volunteer effort was not a governmental initiative in though, the government obviously supported and they came they got into the moon orbit. They but at the last minute as they were coming in for the soft landing the engine failed. And it crash was we're not able to complete it. But the prime minister said that they are going to move ahead and try again, they getting so close and having accomplished so much, overcoming so many obstacles this is still a remarkable achievement only fifth country to get into six to get into moon orbit. And they'll come what happens when you fail to lend on the surface of the moon is all right to to the peace plan. What peace plan? Well, the peace plan is there's a lot of discussion about whether it's going to be forthcoming. And now, we really see that the Palestinians are an after the election of Netanyahu are going to be I think more hardline, but they're saying they rejected even before they've heard it. I think that we're likely to see maybe in June. To be brought for a lot of rumors about what's in it. There. People speculating about it. But the fact that they reject it outright or ready and are are not doing the taking a positive approach to it. And we've seen many disturbing statistics coming out of the Palestinian public opinion. Where the bulk of the people are saying that they they reject the initiatives, and and the positive steps that that should be taken. Seventy eight percent said they would not accept any future peace agreement which involved glance wops, the tween Israel, and and the new state if it is created eighty four percent said they wouldn't accept any agreement that includes continued Israeli security control. I mean, every one of the statistics done by by a Palestinian the polling place sixty five percents. They believe that leadership should reject the US peace plan and only six percents that. Accepted the rest said they should negotiate about it. But this is not a positive and assertive thing, they I have tremendous problems within their waiting to see if their own government can be straits in and whether Abbass remains after the by the time that piece the deal of the century is finally put forward Harare has a new base around Damascus to what we are seeing the situation where where they have made an agreement with the with the Russians that they would withdraw their base that around the Damascus international airport, which was a site of of numerous bombings its coming within the context that the IMF said that their forecast for Ron's recession would be six percent. Plus and in the twenty eighteen their economy was down three point nine percent. Very negative assessments. The floods are taking a heavy toll. And in meantime, Honey is boasting that they have required materials and weapons that you could not have imagined. He. He went public on the the neighbor April ninth event their nuclear day talking about the six which we discussed briefly, but it was much more in terms of the announcements that they said and now Iran can't send the light military quit -ment and some logistical support. They will be allowed, but all the things missiles precision guided missiles in Mitchell's, we'll have to go to Lebanon Iraq in what to it to Syria. The Russians of Asli are not allowing them free will hear Malcolm Hoenlein, Conference of presidents, Major American Jewish organizations. Congratulations to.

"Malcolm Hoenlein, Conference of presidents, Major American Jewish organizations antisemitism in the U S Congress. This is not the United Kingdom parliament with labor led by Jeremy carbon anti Semite. This is the U S Congress democratic caucus. I read from real clear politics, quoting Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the house and these last hours, I don't think the congresswoman is perhaps appreciated the full weight of how it's heard by other people. I don't believe it was intended an anti-semitic way. But the fact is that's how it was interpreted. We have to remove all doubt as we have done over and over again, Malcolm the context here is that a member of congress from Minnesota has repeatedly over these last weeks, and we talked about this. When I started in January made remarks that are textbook routine. Anti semitic signals today eaters textbook. Generation after generation Nancy Pelosi knows better than this in an anti semitic way. Antisemitism is antisemitism. Malcolm. I don't need the American English language interpreted by Nancy Pelosi. The congresswoman from Minnesota is an anti Semite she's demonstrated and congress today tried to move against her. And what Malcolm how far did it get got to a very watered down version of the initial which was to name her and to address the comments you made which was not the first not the second the third time that she has made antisemitic comments using as you said old tropes from dual loyalty to to talk about control of the government and money, which impugns the integrity of every member of congress in the process, and they don't seem to have the self dignity to recognize it that the resolution which condemns all forms of 'isms all the rooms of Slama, phobia, racism, bigotry, etc. Which is fine. But this was a resolution about specific crimes against charges against specific member. Who has engaged repeatedly talking about how the hypnotism? Nation of Israel by Israel, the the the the big lie, and I believe that it's deliberate. So that she puts this out then she can issue some half hearted apology, then puts out the next one. So they become part of the discourse. This is how the big lie works and the difference was that it used to take months if not a year to to to spread it. Now, it goes in an instance through the internet, and the many members were were very upset and indicated that they wanted a separate resolution there should have been one on this because more than fifty eight percent of the attacks in America Ray religious hatred. Acts are against Jews. Listen fifteen percent against Muslims and that number is going down. Where's the attacks against Jews is going up? And we see this constant. References and the conscience activities whether expressed through DDS the boycott divestment sanctions movement, which Omar supports and her call to Corbin. It is exactly it is becoming Corbin on the Potomac with with the same kind of of the accusations charges, and then always hiding behind. You know, the the the Borka that she wears to to deny that this is motivated that this is deliberate. She knows exactly what she's doing. I think and it doesn't take long as Martin Luther King one said that when you attack Zionist Jimmy Jews and they're talking anti semitism. That's what we're talking about. Now, she is free to criticize policies of Israel. She is free to express herself. She is not free to engage the kind of hate mongering. And some that others had mentioned, this is a small minority the Democratic Party, overwhelmingly Democrats reject this, the Democrats in congress rejected. I think that they'll they were. Intimidated, and that's it very sad commentary. When Clyburn the deputy whip can make the kind of comments he did about hers is a real suffering because they were refugees in the holocaust. It's long before Japanese who were interns long before it's not I mean diminishing that this is not a competition between suffering. This is first of all about honesty and truth and about about allowing a member of congress to engage in these kind of this kind of hate speech. It is really outrageous. And that they could not come down with kind of resolution. He did I think it's important that they spoke out. I hope now that they will be held to a standard that the next time this happens, and it's inevitable that it will happen again. She will be more careful perhaps about how she phrases it. But I believe that will we will see whether in fact, they are prepared to act is congress prepared to stand by American values American principals not to deny any segment of the American people the right to speak out. We do not. Deny people the right to criticize Israel to criticize anybody criticize our own government. That is not what this is about. And those kind of accusations are really smokescreen for this deliberate attempt to undermine the right of of Israel to exist. The right of Jews to have determination choosing them. We will do loyalty not just Jews, but Christians, and all of those the vast majority of the American people, even according to a poll released today who support Israel and support US-Israel relationship the time to cut it off. Now as as as now, Malcolm has to be cut off now. And the fact that Nancy Pelosi is chosen not to puts her job at risk. She cannot control this with rhetoric. You know, it will happen again. Because this is a program. This is a program to provoke. There are on. There are unstable people in this country. We had one at Pittsburgh who here this foolishness and act words lead to and you know, she is entitled Omar to whatever belief. This was not about beliefs. Exactly vacation. That's that's exactly right. And that the damage is done, you cannot revoke it. You can't apologize for it. And I said if she wants to criticize Israel Israeli policy. She can advocate, whatever she wants. But be up front and honest about it and don't don't try to engage in these age old the oldest form of hatred and bigotry, we don't want to see Moslems discriminated against. We don't wanna see Christian discriminated against. I didn't hear anybody talk about the new studies with chose hundreds of thousands of Christians at risk today. Especially in Muslim countries not talking about the the number who are killed each day. I want to see that that there is an absolute standard that holds people to account that that recognizes what what is happening here. And and that is not the case right now. What is to be done? You are the conference of presidents of Major American Jewish organizations. Is there a plan b what do we do? Because Omar regards today as a great success. He considers it. Route people who are communicating with her tonight. And I have every reason to believe that some of them are Muslim brothers are telling our keep Koi attack attack attack has Pelosi showed weakness now is there. A plan b from the conference because I did not Elliott ankles exhausted. Malcolm, he's done everything. He can. Well, first of all, I think we should recognize the tremendous statement that Deutsche did that. Florida Elliott Angolan UNITA Lowey of New York angle on the floor today. Restrated, Malcolm, she made a very good she, but she challenged jamar because of the of the remarks and Omar's responser floods even more antisemitic. And you know, this is this is just always yard from Westchester when she was attacked by that poster, you know, equating her to nine eleven we we all agreed that this was outrageous should not have happened spoke out against it. We don't want to see any kind of hatred, but when you legitimize it in this way, and I think that the next step, and we will gauge in a lot of consultation about this is not as to how frankly, it's not our responsibility. It's their responsibility responsibilities responsibility with governance responsibility. Of officials today, you identified this. When we first started the year after congress was sworn in because there were statements, right? Then you said this is a problem. So we have to isolate them the Democratic Party that they are a. Small percentage that we have to get the voice of Democrats. And I spoke to many leaders over the last twenty four forty eight hours. They are outraged. And I think you will see a more assertive approach on their part, but it has to come from them and has to come from democratic leaders. Democrats the party itself, the the members of the Democratic Party to from religious leaders and opinion, mold to have to say, this is it because this is a cancer. It will continue to spread it will affect everybody. While Jews may be the Canarian might will always historically only, maybe the first, but we're nevertheless, and that this hatred spreads. And and I think that any caring person anybody who believes in America's values and standards. We'll stand up and demand that those who sit in our congress can have all the view range of us. They want can introduce legislation and regulations and can can like or dislike any of America's allies. But the fact is you have won democracy in the Middle East. You have one country that stands up for the principles and for that then to become the subs. Of of the DS campaign of charges of manipulation and a bind Khan and attacking APEC and other groups who are just doing what democracy demands, which is the B participant. When Nancy Pelosi says, I don't think the congresswoman is perhaps appreciated the full weight of how it's hurt by other people she completely appreciated. How it was heard Nancy Pelosi is not being sincere there. She knows that the congresswoman did this to provoke and also to challenge Nancy Pelosi. This will not get better for the speaker unless you contains it there are remedies within the caucus within congress. There are ethical remedies. I know Eliot angle, I know Ted Deutch, I do not know Nita Lowey which doctor once over the years, but these are extremely serious people, Malcolm, they have tools, they can adjust got Heimer should be mentioned too for being very courageous and up front and Lee Zeldin the congresswoman's name is Omar she's from Minnesota. She's a fresh. First.

"I'm john batchelor malcolm hoenlein is here the palestinians these last months malcolm and i have been watching the valentine's we were there we watched the provocations gaza but now there's more than the palestinians to talk about there's also the iranians and palestine so i begin with that and then we'll go to the west bank jonathan schanzer joins from the foundation for the defense of democracy jonathan the reports from the grand bazaar in tehran and other ground iran is the protesters with the with the inflation that is absurd ninety thousand real to the dollar are chanting death to palestine do they hear that in on the west bank do they hear that in gaza good evening to you good evening i think this is a champ it's being heard around the middle east that the focus of iran has been on its proxies they've been spending insane amounts of money in places like syria as well as the gaza strip yemen in lebanon and beyond it billions of dollars are being spent to finance iran's foreign adventurism and meanwhile the people are suffering at home they're about to come under significant sanctions pressure from the united states the reality is going through the roof the oil sector is about to dry up which may sap iran many many thousands of jobs depending on how the sanctions play out so the people are now taking to the streets they have been taking to the streets since december so this is actually a six months campaign right now the opposition that has been chanting again the regime and specifically against its financial mismanagement so one gets a sense right now that between the trump administration's exit from the jcp away the looming imposition of sanctions and now this pressure campaign at home from the opposition that the iranian regime is is is teetering what is your sense of the of the mission that's ongoing led by the of the president mr kushner and others wh what is your sense i know they met with netanyahu two days in a row i know that they've met with some of the other arab countries are making the rounds and the king of jordan was in fact in the white house this week what is your sense of what the status is of it and what was accomplished during this visit other than as you said the isolation of the westbound increasing isolation selfisolation by a boston is crew well i think right now i think it's now clear that the kushner green black peace process is one that entails regional cooperation so specifically the saudis egypt sessions the jordanians the emirati and perhaps a few others that they are the primary actors here that the west bank is almost a bit player in all of this and this is a real shift from what we we've seen in the past and the past you know the peace process has been focused on the primary two actors israel and the palestinians the palestinians have been treated as equals in these processes right now they are really an afterthought and so one gets a sense that things are moving closer and closer to a deal that is set to be announced within the next several weeks or months depending on who you talk to within the administration or or what journalists are picking up right now from from the rumor mill but consistently we're hearing from the palestinian authority leadership that they are furious that they are not getting the deal that they want that they are not being consulted as equal partners this will be a deal that regional in nature i think it will be a deal that ultimately focuses on ensuring that gaza gets more resources that perhaps the west bank gets fewer but i think at the end.

"With malcolm hoenlein conference of presidents major american jewish organizations malcolm i want to turn to the larger story of the trump administration's initiative for peace in the region after fifteen years of traveling to the region as an outsider observing the foes and i could list them but it would take us too long the idea of a peace treaty or a peace arrangement with the palestinian bad actors and the syrian bad actors and the lebanese bad actors the hezbollah seems utopian to me almost a presumption presumption that's not well educated now i'm an outsider i'm not involved with the state of israel i'm not involved for the government of the united states i'm not i'm not running for election so i don't have to make statements i don't have to make statements about the we hope for the best you need a partner in a peace negotiation and a peace negotiation generally follows a resolution to stop the conflict to stop the violence those are missing pieces for the trump administration to approach this without a without an a cassisi of the violence and without a partner who is transparent and can be trusted this is political gameplay or even interested in what occasions you're racing this now is the embassy of mr kushner and who's in charge of the middle east peace initiative and jason green black blind who's been a special envoy both of them very devoted very committed to this whole process been repeatedly over and over again traveling in the region they're going i think to saudi arabia egypt and israel on this trip in it's coming during the middle of the moslem holidays the this coming weekend and so a they'll they'll have to work around the celebrations that are going on but it's cluded they're going there to touch base what you said about the palestinians is true and even goes in step further not only do they have to show transparency but have to show interest there refusing to meet with him they don't even read the document and then negotiators as you've seen have been involved in some pretty nasty exchanges with american representatives.
