"You know, so it just shows there's a still a problem. And it's worse, of course, in Saudi Arabia, women are making some progress. I'm always keen to talk up progress when I see women in the Middle East because we mustn't say it's all bad. In some cases, it is improving a bit, but there's still a long way to go. Mary Robinson, thank you so much for your time this morning. Very grateful to you. Okay, thank you. She was president of Ireland, of course, in the 1990s in our chair of the group, the elders. Lots of you sending in your messages about daddy issues, I'll read those out a little bit later on but we've had this text on 8 four 8 four four, Australia, Brazil, Saudi Arabia, China, Russia. It's too late, the media continues to give out mixed messages not enough to avert disaster. It's the only way humanity learns as in World War I and World War II. Everyone wants to be optimistic. That's not appropriate anymore. Sorry to the next generations. Do keep your messages coming in and all of the things we're talking about this morning. Now, the reality of no jab, no job is starting to bite in the care home sector. A new mandatory rule in England came into force yesterday that means staffing care homes have to be double vaccinated. Well, care home managers and directors say they've had to let workers go and a seriously concerned about staff numbers coming into the winter months. Some say they feel like care homework has been discriminated against as this rule only currently applies to care homes. You'll remember that the health secretary strategy javid says this policy will extend to all frontline NHS staff in England as well from April 1st. But how is this going to affect recruitment issues facing care homes, or we can speak now to Nicola Richards? She is director of palms row healthcare in Sheffield, she manages a 160 staff across two nursing homes and a healthcare staffing agency. And she spoke to us about this policy a few months ago, hi, Nicola. Morning. Also with us is nadra Ahmed, who is chairman of the national care association, which represents care providers high nidra. Good morning. Thank you both for joining us. Nicola, I want to start with you, because I know that you had a pretty tough day yesterday, didn't you? You had to, well, I guess effectively sack two people. Yeah, it was. It was really emotional day yesterday. We had to do X interviews and obviously dismiss stuff not having the job. So I can't tell you how it was there were tears around from care staff from residents from myself, it was just it was heartbreak and really and why did they tell you they'd taken the decision not to be vaccinated? One of the staff had had a really bad reaction when she had the first job. She was really unwell, but she wasn't medically exempt. So she was she just said she couldn't put herself through it. And the second work had just felt as you've just mentioned discriminated against real. She said to me yesterday, why is it that people Indiana chest don't have to have the vaccine? She said, I've worked here for 8 years and she has on the front line. She didn't miss one rule today during COVID. She suffered anxiety looking after residents, obviously petrified. She used to go home and show herself before she took the children early on in the pandemic. And she's really a real life at risk. I think she's felt that we should have had more time..

"It's bigger than any country, the lobby of the fossil fuel world here. And I know that you've been critical previously of the pressure that Saudi Arabia appears to be able to exert when it comes to drawing up these agreements. Do you worry about this? When the final agreement is, is presented to everybody. Well, I've known the habit of Saudi Arabia. And I've been amazed at the influence it has, because this is about reducing emissions. And they have got a kind of strong position and they're always there at the table, and sometimes the countries that would resist what Saudi Arabia is doing like removing human rights, gender equality, reference to needs of indigenous peoples from tax, including future education on human rights. The ace program, they've damaged it because other countries weren't there to stop them. And they're now trying to push back they were the ones with Russia who pushed back on phasing out coal to phasing out the weaker wording on that. And it's sad because that's a G 20 formula of phasing out unabated coal and inefficient fossil fuel subsidies. That's never worked. We need phasing out of all coal urgently, and even the international energy agency. It's clear on that. It's kind of frustrating when you have a body that was very conservative in the past that actually has a good head of it now. Fatty Burrell, who says, we shouldn't be extracting any more fossil fuel out of the earth because we have enough fossil fuel to tie us over to a just transition to clean energy. And he's right. Just to finish off, I want to ask you and actually it is good that there's an initiative to phase out oil and gas led by Costa Rica and Denmark. And a number of countries I'm glad my own country, Ireland has joined, but the United Kingdom hasn't. I'm sad about that, actually, because they have the presidency, and they haven't signed up to phasing out oil and gas. So that's a bit sad. Before I let you go, Mary Robinson, I want to ask you at the beginning of this year, you were brought into the controversy surrounding princess latifah in Dubai in the allegations that she was being held hostage. Now as the months have passed, has it become any clearer, what the truth is? It doesn't seem clear to the media. I wonder if you knew anymore. I don't know anymore. I've seen pictures of her in various locations where she seemed happy. And I went back to Dubai to a green climate conference deliberately a few weeks ago and I spoke openly there about human rights I call for the immediate release of Ahmed Mansour..

"I mean, I know a number of these and they're not all women Jerome foster has been very active here and he's in the Biden White House advising as a young adviser. So some of them are getting real attention and they have big followings, which is important. So, you know, and of course Greta Thunberg was here earlier. But there are an increasing number and I think they are making a difference. And their influencing their parents and their influencing their community and hopefully their influence influencing leaders. But some people will argue that the last fortnight has been a complete waste of time and money. This cop was all about making sure that we don't go over the 1.5°C. And it looks by all accounts that that is going to happen unless something massively changes. In the coming hours, I guess coming days. Also, Glasgow is on track to be one of the most polluting climate summits of its kind. It's worse than the last one in Madrid. When you reflect on this, do you think that cop 26 will have been a failure? I don't like the word failure, and the elders bring hope so I'm going to think through when I see the final result how to message about it. But frankly, the framework to reach agreement on climate is probably the weakest framework we have in the UN system because it's a framework by consent. And we can only move with that framework..

"Is on your watch. Sorry. It's so important. You know, we are literally talking about having a safe future. And the elder is pressing the leaders and understand and you can't negotiate with science. You can't talk about a glass beam half full. We have to get it down. We have to be on track at 1.5, and it is doable. Well, Barry Robinson joins me now from Glasgow good morning. Good morning. Tell me I watched that interview that you did on Sky News and you were clearly emotional. Was that tiredness, frustration? Just tell me what was going through your mind. I think what was going through my mind was what a 2.4° heating world means. You know, in this world, if you're younger than 60 years old, it's likely that you'll witness the total destabilization of life as we know it. Crop failures fracturing economies, hundreds of millions of people fleeing regions because they're made uninhabitable by either extreme heat or flooding or permanent drought. And if you're under 30 years old, the science tells us that you're all but guaranteed to live through this. That's not tolerable. I mean, how can leaders on their watch justify that? And that was a mixture of anger and frustration, but also utter, you know, we can not let this happen. Now I have to say, that 2.4° Celsius of warming is measuring the commitments that governments make their nationally determined contributions as it's called. Some things that happen here at the cop will help. For example, the methane pledge, because if we can get methane down, it's more lethal than carbon. And it will help a little bit. The forestation pledge, which is more robust this time with money for indigenous peoples that will help a lot of investment commitment. The private sector has stepped up pretty significantly. Those who are here, because they're in crisis mode. The private sector leaders that I meet, the B team of business leaders and others. They're in total crisis mode as I am. Unfortunately, some other leaders are not in crisis mode. And I know you've called those people out, just tell us who particularly you think isn't in crisis made and isn't taking this seriously. I think it's been disappointing that China hasn't increased its NDC. I know that China implements when it pledges and sometimes under pledges and overperforms unlike some Western countries where we pledge and then don't perform enough..

"Now it's the last day of the cop 26 climate summit in Glasgow. A new draft agreement published in the last few hours, weakens government's commitments on fossil fuels. But has stronger language on paying poorer countries to tackle climate change. So where does it leave us? There are growing fears that the goal of limiting global warming to 1.5°C is unlikely to be met. In the next few minutes, we'll be speaking to Mary Robinson, former Irish president and chair of the elders who is at cop and has been very critical of some of the nation's she considers a blocking progress. Care homeworkers want double jabbed against COVID are now forbidden from working in care homes. The rules came in yesterday and there have been numerous emotional accounts of managers having to sack people over the past 24 hours. We'll hear from one of them. Dame rose tremaine is going to be with me here in the studio to talk about her latest historical novel, lily. It's a tale of revenge set in Victorian London. Lilly, who was abandoned at birth sees the very worst and best in human nature. We'll also be talking about so called daddy issues, often a slur thrown at women. What does the relationship between men and their daughters tell us? This morning I want to hear from you about how your relationship with your father has affected you and your relationships. You can text me now on 8 four 8 four four, text will be charged at your standard message rate. So tell me, do you have daddy issues? Do you know someone who does? Whether you put your father on a pedestal, and now you find it really hard to find a partner who matches up to him or did your dad leave the family home when you were a child, what impact did that have on you, your relationships with men with your children with your partner? And why is this something that is only thrown at women surely men can have daddy issues too? And what about mummy issues? Getting touched by social media is at BBC women's air, or you can email us through the website. Plus, the world's biggest 24 hour shopping spree has just come to an end, but you might not have even heard of it. It's called singles day in China. It's a kind of anti Valentine's Day celebration, but the Chinese government it does have a serious edge, as marriage rates have plummeted over the last decade. But let's begin by speaking about this new draft agreement, which has been drawn up at the cop 26 climate summit. It has stronger language about helping paying poorer countries to fight climate change. But on the flip side, it's softened government requirements to reduce fossil fuel and coal use. What it does say is that governments need to urgently tackle climate change. It's been described as a monumental challenge to keep 1.5 alive. That's the view of cop 26 president alok Sharma. The UN secretary general Antonio Guterres says the goal was on life support. So we do know cop 26 is entering its final day. It's widely thought that governments will not make the commitments needed to ensure temperature rises remain below that 1.5°C compared with pre industrial temperatures. If so, does that mean that this climate summit has been a failure? Well, one person who's been there throughout and is staying till the bitter end, whether that's tonight tomorrow Sunday is Mary Robinson, who was president of Ireland in the 1990s, now the chair of the group the elders. Well, during the week, as it emerged that the targets hoped for are unlikely to be reached, it really got to her in an interview with Sky News. I'm saying to the leaders who were here now, this.

Vienna very very nervous. And of course. Madam madam demont. Excu does not hide the fact that she is happy. Because of that. And so so of the emperor. The austrian emperor france francis the i actually has police surveilling. Her has your under police surveillance.

He sends a note to her. Out of luck right. Yep so so yes. He was principles and her beliefs that he ultimately. That's what he noticed. And i suppose this is such listening story it says so much about. It's the celebrity things. And i think if you're a very very famous an everyone is treating you in a certain way. If you happen to be the emperor fraud see probably fall into that category than the people who just refuse to play that game must impress you and so the stick out and i guess that's what happened here. Well she her refusal. Wasn't this kind of dramatic like it. Wasn't this dramatic sort of Petula child of i well or or finger-wagging it was. It was a very simple and quiet but very principled action. it was a dementia active faith. That really impressed polian that that she still had the strong strong religious principle in faith. But she wasn't preachy about it. Yeah so then okay. So she starts the job. She's looking after the infant saheb. Napoleon bonaparte and i mean how how. How's the research in terms of working out. What her daily life was like. Lots of sort of late a long eighteenth century nap nappies diapers. I think you americans cool lib yes. So the the the nappies the diapers One of the things. That i thought was so interesting. When i went to the archives in paris nacional in the in the in the archives documents from the hustle king of rome our her basically her grocery lists every month and their diapers bottle. The toys various lennon's clothing. It is it is very much what you would expect of a new parent. Except i mean she's kind of the parent and which you think of your parents shopping list. Marie louise i mean this. This would have been perfectly normal at the time for for royalty. Of course you know i imagine. She was not a hands-on mother. In any sense that you do just leave it to the governor's sort of now. What i've found in my research. I want to talk about is actually in france in the in the second of the eighteenth century attitudes toward motherhood started to change especially among the upper nobility. And you start to see more women in france. Start to take a much more active role in in mothering and child rearing and child education on and so now how now marie louis. She herself was raised by a essentially by governess which she was also raised in a court. That was a lot more homey a lot more closed. It was not the kind of public courts that the french court had been on.

Who's the main primary source for her story because he he publishes his memoirs her second son anatole becomes a a he. He joins the military. He joins the grandba- and he serves as in abc to various to the mass marshalls until he until eventually. He's an abc to napoleon himself. He loves the polian with a sort of fanaticism that is that napoleon inspires right and he doesn't know what i like about anatoly. He doesn't have to. I mean he's from this noble family. That actually was able to kind of hang onto some of their wealth throughout the way he. He loves he drinks. Napoleon's kool-aid Need loves the he named his firstborn son napoleon boy. That's kind of taking it a bit too. Far isn't it. But i think that said something because this podcast is going to be It's going to be a little bit down on some aspects of napoleon. You know a lot of myths that the traditional obsessions with napoleon might possibly be played down just a little bit. But i think the sounds like a good reminded that this was a man who is able to command extraordinary loyalty from from people like like anatole even polian advocates nineteen fourteen anatole coz and bakes napoleon to let him anatole go into exile with them and pull him basically tells them you have a young family and you have your whole life ahead of you. I can't that of you. And so basically. Napoleon tells him no but madame demonte skew herself. She she really never sought a position court. She was at the points court she was not. She was not the opportunistic quartier. She you know she's in her mid forties at this point and she kind of figure she's she's already seat. She's already had this kind of traumatic experience through the revolution. Mean she's in prison during the revolution and then on then her son dies in the napoleonic wars sh. She really doesn't expect that she's going to get a position court nor does she. I don't think she necessarily wanted one too much about her personality about a. You know the kind of person that she was all most of her contemporaries describe her as a. They have very positive things to say about her that she was very competent. They describe her as religious but not fanatical that she that she had religious devotion and but that she was a very worrell respectable person. I think also as i've researched her. I think she was also at once. She becomes the governor. She was demanding. Taskmaster she she.

"Australia south africa. He's on the phone more to biden about climate finance. It means just get get red hot between now and and glasgow because it's his responsibility at the end of the day. It's not a photo opportunity as has been said. You can't just swan in and say some nice words. It has to be prepared for as never before because never been a cop. That's more important. He would argue. He's come up with some of the most ambitious targets in the whole world for emissions yes the. Uk targets are good for juicing emissions. I hope he won't open a new oil development which apparently is on the cards potentially in other words yes but we have to see the proof of it. I'm very supportive of sharma. Very supportive of this cop being as good as it possibly can. I'm one of the friends of up in that sense. But i do feel if you want to say it's a very inclusive and transparent cop make it so put more women than there in leadership roles. Finally one little question one tip. I'm need to podcasts. One tape that you've learned that you can give me going ahead. i think. I think i've learned the importance of humor. Climate is a very serious subject and it can cause anxiety in fact the way to deal with the anxiety is through action and get involved. If you're feeling anxious make it personal and then get angry about those who aren't doing enough and imagine this world we need to be hurrying towards and then you're on the course to be less anxious because you're busy being involved but more than anything else. I love the humor in our mothers of invention podcast and elders. We learned from archbishop tutu. He calls himself a prisoner of hope. And we bring hope partly through recognizing that this is all doable. It's just a question of the political will and we need to bring the world together in a way that is is the way. The world has responded in a way to to the covert crisis and by taking the steps necessary. We just need to take the steps. Necessary do with recognition of our humanity and within that of humor as i commend you to. That's that's such a good tip about a hope in cetaceans and our podcast just may have to brush up on my jokes a bit. Mary robinson such a pleasure to have you talked to us. Thanks very much of your time. So mary robinson there. And i'm going to be very strong catcher at cop twenty six in a few weeks time.

The leader of the marshall islands making his case and and part of his argument was where suffering now from climate change. The recent weather events extreme weather events we've seen from heat waves floods around the world and the last few weeks we'll focus minds more that some of the countries that have perhaps put off taking action now realize that now is the moment to do something. I do think that. I mean i can see a shift taking place. I can shift taking place in the private sector. More and more corporations are making commitments. Some of us is greenwash or whatever they call it but some of it is very genuine because they see there's not going to be future for their children and grandchildren so some of them are very serious. I work with a team of business leaders. And they're very serious. I think one problem. That's very much the mind of the elders is. We need the united states and china as they did before paris to come together. President obama and present she now president biden president. She must come together as a real leadership together at a time when there is a very uneasy and colder relationship between the united states and china john kerry to his great credit is doing his very best but it actually needs the two leaders together to say. Look this is too important to our world. And obviously you mentioned the us and and china being the world's biggest emitters are they doing enough now. The united states is not doing enough on climate finance needs to do more and john kerry absolutely knows this and i think biden absolutely knows this. It's just the difficulty of the fact that unfortunately climate is very politicized in the united states and therefore congress is not moving together as they should be on this being a crisis for the world in which the united states is the natural one of the leaders who can help us to to move forward..

Helpful Tips for Working From Home with Glenn Fleishman
"The whole reason for this particular episode is even though it's not really in our normal vm. It to give this kind of advice with everything that's happening. We know that a lot of people in the UK across the world will be worked from home for the first time or at least working from home for the first time for an extended period and that can be an odd aspiration to be an oversee. Some people don't have the option of working from home and especially for those people who continuing to do shopping for us and look after us in other ways with us. An inch as the health service or or in other professions like cleaning and this jobs that often go unremarked but for those people who are network from my friend. Glenn. Fleishman has written a book. It's his contribution to keeping everyone saying and moving forward which he's pro for free is called taking control of working from home temporarily and is available at take control books dot com and it's full of advice from him and from friends across the world about how to make the very based of the changed circumstances of yourselves in and so because I knew Glen. I got him on the phone from Seattle Washington where he joins us now to go through the advice. That's in his book so joining us from Seattle. Here's Glenn Fleishman. Welcome Queen. Hello thank you for having me. You're very welcome. Thank you so much for writing this book and All. We'RE GONNA DO. This really is you. Take through the contents. You've written a book on literally am what should people working from home for the first time. Be Thinking about. Well IT'S A. It's an interesting time because usually when you advise people say you know. I'm thinking about working from home. Maybe a transition maybe leading one job and going freelance or they get a new job that gives them the opportunity. And you're like well we could. We could plan this out. Here's some ideas. Here's we think about. This is totally different. This is like no one has ever on. The scale of this never happened before that. So many people thrown on their own devices to change their pattern of working. So that's why I thought to my mind. I made the sexiest book arises in part because I made a joke on twitter about before this became even more serious. I think if you're still making jokes. Some twitter yeah exactly. This is a few a few weeks ago a few short weeks ago. It's like well if you're being asked to work from home or forced to work from home get a freelance bunny and they can tell you things like putting time lock on your refrigerator and so forth. I don't keep your account for typing on your keyboard and I got a remarkable response to that and I thought oh I'm making light of something it's a very serious for people and I thought why. Write a book about this and get advice from people like you and veteran work from home people so I talked to people who are work Some of them are employees have been employees doing telework. Some of them were fulltime for home for virtual company. That has no central office. Some are freelancers like me. And they've spent most or a huge chunk of their life especially in recent years working for a home space they created and we all had some time to plan most of us and I think the most critical thing. I think that everybody said I totally agree. And this is kind of what got me into a Home Office. Also after renting space outside the home when Seattle's real estate market was a little cooler than it is. Now it's Guinness. Set a space for yourself and that's going to be hard for a lot of people because if you didn't plan this you know. Most people do not conveniently have An extra several rooms in their mansion. They don't have their jato sitting there and oldest oldest shift off the record and so forth. It's you know some people may be lucky enough to have an extra room or room. That's their their sewing room there. Dan a kids playroom that they say look. I need a space where I can define the sum. You're not to turn that over So that if you're very lucky you of that you could close the door. If not you're going to need to find a space in somewhere in your home and I know for some people listening. This may be your roommates. You may have a partner. You may have children the parents living with you than maybe living with. You talked to numerous people who are suddenly living at home because of where they are and these are people. Sometimes in the thirties forties The current crisis others have had their parents move to them so they're closer by to help whether this and provide for them so we are in unprecedented time. A resident living situations. Our children will be home for weeks if not for the rest of our school year in my house and being able to define space. That your workspace being able to find both physically. Here's where I'm working in a way. That is not invasive of other people but that that you communicate to them that is the space you need to work in being able to set it aside. Psychologically so yeah in that space. You're working you're not you're not yet. I think actually key so as you say a lot of people will have the luxury of separate even have a Home Office of some kind or a space can vividly purpose into a Home Office. Even if you don't that idea of some High D. marketing space that will be yours and that might be a purely notional barrier. Right might not be anything physical. It might be just saying when mummy is over here. She's going to be working. Yeah the writer. Mary Robinson cow was a science fiction writer. Whose work may people know she? Has This Co Creative Commons licensed. Pdf she made for working at a writers workshops. It works really well for home to she. Basically you print this out in stiff paper and fold it and you put a paper on a paper clip a clothes pin on it and you put it in different positions of your laptop. Whether you're available not available or goofing off right and you just literally a sign of. I talked to one fella who is tips in the book. A colleague of his used a hugh. That's H. E. controllable lightbulb. Put it outside his office so when he's His Google calendar is tied into Was So when he has an appointment at actually lights up his family knows. He's an assessment. Incredibly Geeky way of doing things but you can do much more. Gripe you could just literally have a series of colored people that stick to the door or you as you see that difficult will flag on your laptop or even just you know simple rules about times between this time and this time the one of the things that he liked was talking about you know almost a traffic light system. So it's raid really. Is You kind of interrupt me? I might be broadcasting or might be. I'm really focusing piece of writing or might be doing. Something just requires focus green is. I'm just goofing off. You can come in whenever you like and I think you said I'm a little while or keeping Jason seeing ethical while to work those rules. Where if your wife commits you're working space during that amber thomas she can come in and then just just pause for a second. Let me finish the thought a writing and then. I'm completely talkable and those can have rules of social interaction can be quite difficult to to to get to so what shortcuts. Can you have for us to those good sports a bit more quickly? I think it's going to be a combination of physical barriers and symbols and signs And also some digital tools and it'll depend obviously on the age of of kids and parents and sophistication as well as a three year old is not gonna be checking your shared. Calendar your wife or husband or other partner May Be checking account under for you And you know I think we're going to those of us who can rely on digital purposes. Especially I'm thinking you know I know people in the bay area in the San Francisco Bay area who Maybe seven to a house and that may sound worse than it is. It is as bad as it sounds because of the cost of housing there and these people are all roommates and the I don't think any of them are romantic partners in in one case And they have some bedroom summer sharing a room and they may all be thrown in an even working different shifts in the past so they have to figure out some system but all these people are digital natives digitally literate they can all put stuff in a calendar maker share calendar You know it could be as simple as putting up a curtain sticking a couple hooks in the ceiling for the time being or getting a little stand guy. These actually very inexpensive photos stands are designed for putting up backdrops on but you can get these kits typically very inexpensively with Telescoping tripods and you could just hang a curtain or use a photo type Divide on it and just be. That is your office and you move it out of the way at night when it's no longer your office. I think one of the things that's worth seeing as well as that and something like that. You know putting hooks into the ceiling to hang something from scare some people not right from the point of view but it tends quite drastic but it is worth seeing without being in any way alarmist we might be looking at a few months of this Especially with schools closing people having to work from home to support their their kids so it it it it far to do that work. No right and get a working as well for you as possible than to Heathrow something together. It's just kind of you know kitchen table and we'll sorta all I if you do that for two weeks. You might suddenly find the actually. You're not in a particularly good place and a month down the line that I think is exactly it is is is also I? I say this again and again the book and I'll say it again and again what we're talking is be kind to yourself too because this is going to be difficult for you. Your employer has no idea what's going on because no no one has ever lived this kind of experience before in the history of the world people have gone through play and so forth. No one has gone through of disease. That's this survivable yet. Requires this much disruption. I mean what we're being asked for us to be as far away from everybody else as possible and keep working. Keep working which we need because we need to make money. We need the money to keep going. So we're actually inviting vital. Working is a vital function. But then you know you all these other stresses on top of you so set it up like maybe you need psychological. Say I can't set this up as a three-month office or a six week office on setting up a two week

because synagogue shootings Saturday was a horrible day for America right Jeff tonight's to man shootings thirty one people were killed more than fifty injured liberals in the mainstream media were quick to place blame for the mass shootings on president trump's rhetoric and his followers you and perhaps the most hypocritical example was former vice president Joe Biden speech that directly link the anti trump interpretation of president trump's rhetoric to his past this past weekend's shootings yeah Biden really believes what he says he should be slamming the anti Jewish hatred spewed by Barack Obama the president from whom he work but you should be asked if trump's words incited this week shooting should you be blaming Obama's anti semitic words and actions for the recent synagogue

eight pack question Obama statement comparing people who object to the Iran deal with those who supported the invasion of Iraq because many anti Semites claim the Jews pushed bush into invading Iraq no bomb explain that Netanyahu supported the Iraq invasion true what the former president left out was that the prime minister at the time was Ariel Sharon and Sharon strongly urge bush not to invade Iraq a bomb also forgot to mention that is vice president Joe Biden both of the secretaries of state carrying Clinton and his biggest ally in the Senate minority leader Harry Reid all supported voted for the invasion of Iraq in Congress and now support his flawed Iran deal but Obama even double down accusing the Jewish state of being a bunch of war mongers during an August twenty fifteen speech at American University Obama again try to scapegoat the Jews saying quote so this deal is not just the best choice among alternatives this is the strongest nonproliferation agreement ever negotiated because this is such a strong deal every nation in the world that is commented publicly with the exception of the Israeli government has expressed support yes Israel oppose the deal but so did Saudi Arabia Pakistan UAE Bangladesh most of the other Sunni Muslim states vehemently opposed to DO because of their feels that the Shia Iran would use nukes to attack them but Obama wanted to skate

other words those pesky Jews who control America's policy on the Middle East one of his first presidential appointments was the anti semitic Chas Freeman who blame his resignation on the evil Israel lobby the nicer way to say the Jewish lobby actually Chas it was a lot less than an evil Israel lobby much of it was the work of a few Jewish blockers one of them was named let let who pointed out

only created because people felt guilty about the Holocaust said America strong bonds with Israel are well known this bond is unbreakable spaced about cultural and historical ties the recognition that the aspiration for a Jewish homeland is rooted in a tragic history that cannot be denied round the world the Jewish people were persecuted for centuries and anti semitism in Europe culminated in an unprecedented Holocaust tomorrow I will visit broken wall which was part of a network of camps where Jews were enslaved tortured shot and gassed to death by the third Reich six million Jews were

people to build houses on land on the western side of the Jordan River but that's only part of the story the property was legally purchased in two thousand nine by doctor Irving and turn a Moscow which from a US preppers Presbyterian church there were no complaints when the Presbyterian church owned it but team Obama wasn't objecting to the fact that the houses were being built on that land back then the homes were intended for Christian or Muslim families they would have said nothing as it once was so many other cases during the Obama administration the objection was based on the Jews were going to live in those buildings there's no other faith in the world that the Obama administration objected legally purchasing land buildings then moving into the property they legally purchased Obama signed a bipartisan trade facilitation and trade enforcement act of twenty fifteen which contain provisions fighting the anti semitic BDS movement but upon signing the bill and now said he would not enforce its anti BDS provisions against Israel and one of the last acts of Obama's president was up staining on a U.
