Fresh "Middle Eastern" from Uncovering the Truth

"Live to all your favorite anywhere in the world who can in Jerusalem, the world and some people download the app and find that easier to bring it with him wherever they want in their phone. Well today, very important subject. We're going to examine the ongoing hostilities between Israel in the Palestine Authority, or maybe to be a little bit more accurate. We should say between Israel and Hamas. Yeah, I would say that's right. And hopefully our Very, very wonderful correspondent in Jerusalem will call in and give us up eyewitness picture of what what goes on, but let's go back to last week, a jury verdict. Which was again a very, very difficult topic and a very good one. The audience really fleshed it out beautifully. And now The verdict. Do you think dark money should be illegal or prohibited? Yes. 88% 12. No. And just to remind everybody dark money is a term used to describe nonprofit organizations who can spend money to influence elections, But they don't have to disclose their donors in a north the amount The donors are contributing. But the verdict seems very clear that our jurors want transparency in America. I think that's pretty much a sentiment the American people and let's see. Over the next couple of years that happens. The subject for this week. Has a history that goes back. At least to the creation of the state of Israel. In 1947. It really has a history that goes back three millennia, but We can't go back quite that far. I mean for centuries for millennia, the area of the Middle East surrounding Jerusalem. Has been described in ancient times. As Judea and Samaria and expend the ancestral and religious home of the people of Israel. I mean, you just have to read any part of the Old Testament and you'll see Jewish people are praying to return to their homeland. Roussel right there home. They've been doing that for 2500 years or more, and that's what I grew up reading, especially in high school. During the latter part of the 19th century. The continued in intensified which I always grapple with this anti Semitism in Europe don't understand. I don't understand it led to the large movement of the Zionist movement of Jewish people. First asking for and then demanding. Ah, Homeland who doesn't want a homeland that they wanted a home win because they were being persecuted? Yes. And at the same time in eastern Europe and Europe and France? Yeah, there were being persecuted. Yeah, and it led to a massive immigration to Jerusalem and immediately surrounding areas, joining the Jewish population already living there. You have. The movement was called the Zionist movement, Right? You know, Hertzel is the man who pretty much wrote about it and he wasn't the only one and when and when all these countries Um, not only Middle Eastern, but they had this catching on to European countries say Zion. Zionism is racism that basically saying Combating anti Semitism is racism because Zionism exists so that the Jews can finally have Fullback. A protection against two centuries are two millennia of being persecuted. Programs. These terrible, terrible outbreaks of violence on good Friday, where somehow they come out of the out of AH, service. Reading the Passion of the Christ, and they just say Jews of the Christ killers. Let's kill them when In fact, Christianity teaches just the opposite. Jesus died. As a Jew. You never understood that. Yeah, I didn't even use certainly, in any event. That's why they needed Israel into the inclusion of this war and two others set the boundaries of Israel. The most significant with the six day war 1967. When Israel was attacked. When Israel was attacked by the Arab nations. And Won the war in six days and what then they got. They got this territory Gaza, the West Bank and the Golan Heights, which was intended for them in the first place, and they were cheated out of it by the U. N. They laid down blood to get this land an attack that was unprovoked. And now the pressure of the world begins. Give it back. Would you give it back? If you were surrounded by countries that was sworn to annihilate you? Yeah, in just national security wise, they are our allies. And in the most recent hostilities, which seemed to be heading for another war begin with a large Gathright gathering of a wraps at the El Ax Well, mosque. On May 8th They were celebrating the holiest day of the month of Ramadan. But Israel has said a 10,000 person limit you know, because of cove in so, but tens of thousands showed up and refuse to comply. When in one way or Israeli police began enforcing the CCP virus restrict like they do in Michigan, like they do in New York. What they do in California like they do win. Right. You know what less than 10,000 right, And that's when the violence broke out in the Israeli police. Police just had to take action. There was no data backed up, and it does seem like a setup. Since almost immediately, Hamas began firing rockets into Israel from Gaza. One landed on the outskirts of journalism is always considered off limits. I don't think too many rockets have ever landed near Jerusalem. Remember, Jerusalem is the Holy place. Not only for the Jewish people, but for the Muslim people. And for a questions. Yeah, and that the whole thing that out oxygen mask in the reason that's a issue is that's where Mohammed is your third holiest place in the Muslim religion. That's where Mohammed according to the Karan slept one night and was taken by. I believe the Angel Gabriel on a tour of paradise, and he met all of the profits, including Moses and Jesus. And he developed Let's say his enthusiasm and his mean Corrine had been dictated to him in parts by Gabriel.

Reem Kassis: The Arabesque Table

"Palestinian rights ream cusses released her debut cookbook palestinian table in two thousand seventeen four much critical acclaim now cast is is back with her second book. The arabesque table contemporary recipes from the arab world the released takes a broader look at contemporary cooking across the arab world emphasizing. How much different countries. Sharon have influence on each other. I spoke to causes a bit earlier on. She started by explaining. Why choosing the name for the book too long then writing it. I submitted my second manuscript drafts without a title for the book but in hindsight is actually a blessing more than anything because the name derived as a result of the experience of writing. And what i learned along the way and the reason we chose. The arabesque table is arabesque. As you might already know is an intertwined hatter or design that is recognized and islamic arabic art and what i wanted to convey with. The book was at cuisine. Similar to this artistic pattern that inspired the title is inherently also infinitely intertwined and more beautiful as a result in addition to that though i mean we were trying to get a name that conveyed what the food was and to call it. The arab table would not necessarily have been accurate because there were a lot of dishes inside. That were inspired by other cuisines intersection of those cuisines. So arabesque conveyed both of those things. You know the intersection at the same time. The idea that it is not purely one regional kind of cooking in the book but tell me more about the approach you took when you were working on this book you say that you wanted to celebrate the evolution of middle eastern cuisine. One thing i specified in the book is the whole idea of the term. Middle east doesn't convey accurately the cuisine of our region because middle east is simply a term for a region that was between the british empire's easternmost colony of india and europe and what really ties. The cuisine of region together is it's being arab and it's acculturation under arab and islamic

White House to release new guidelines after Khashoggi intel report

"Covert deaths, a new declassified version of the U. S Intelligence report concluding that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Solomon often referred to his NBS approved of the 2018 killing of journalists, Jamal Kashiwagi, the officials saying that the report by the office of the Director of National Intelligence, Deanna In coordination with the CIA, concluding that the crown prince approved in likely erred erred, ordered the murder of Kashiwagi, who's washing post column had criticized the crown Prince CNN, NBC and Reuters are among those news organizations reporting that the group which had assassinated and dismembered this Saudi dissident, then flew to Istanbul on private jets owned by a company previously seized by the Middle Eastern kingdoms, Controversial MBS. But at the White House today, this question to press secretary Jen Psaki said. When they Talk that the president won't hold back. Will he be following up this talk with actions are sanctions on the table. E think there are a range of actions that are on the table. But the first step is the next step. I should say it's for the president to speak with the king. We expect that to happen very soon. As you know, we've committed to the release of an unclassified report that would come out from Deanna and not from the White House on. Of course, our administration is focused on recalibrating the relationship as we've talked about in here previously, and certainly there are areas where we will express concerns on and leave open the option of accountability. There also areas where we will continue to work with Saudi Arabia. Given the threats they face in the region. Well, hold up to the phone call. Is the king avoiding your calls? I don't think that's the characterization. The president has a busy schedule. The king. Obviously, I can't speak to his schedule. I'm not his spokesperson, but we expect the call to happen very soon. I think there was an inaccurate reporting about being confirmed when it wasn't a confirmed call. Yet if you have made clear that the president's gonna be speaking with his counterpart with it came with the Crown prince. But given the Crown princess role in the future of the kingdom, and that he is expected to be implicated here, why not speak to the person I expect to be responsible? Well, I think the president's conversation will cover a range of topics with the king. There's obviously A lot to discuss with Saudi Arabian with the leaders of Saudi Arabia, And as I noted, a previously noted the conferences have been engaged with his appropriate counterparts. The president will be engaged with his appropriate counterparts, and we're engaged at many levels with leaders in Saudi Arabia. So will the conferences counterparts here, But often he's teaching him about this issue that he spoke with him last week. They did a readout. I don't think I have anything more about their call from today's White House briefing. We should Point out during a September 2019 interview with CBS is Norah O'Donnell for 60 Minutes. Piece, the Saudi Crown prince denying any knowledge of Jamal cash. Augie's death his answers through a translator. The world wants the answer to this question. How did you not know about this operation about that? Some think that I should know what three million people working for the Saudi government do daily. It's impossible that the three million would send their daily reports to the leader or the second highest person in the Saudi government. Two of your closest advisors, who are accused of orchestrating this plot were fired by the king removed. From your inner circle. The question is, How could you not know if this was carried out by people who are close to you? The only doctors today the investigations are being carried out and once charges are proven against someone, regardless of their rank, it will be taken to court. No exception made. I've read what the Saudi prosecutor has said about those that are charged in this murder. And it's gruesome the details when you heard that people close to you and in your government carried out such a grisly murder, and that the American government thinks that you ordered it. What did you think I could be the godmother of Lord Coffee, Mother, Cutie. I believe what you mentioned is not correct. There isn't an official statement announced by the American government in this rig. Heart. There isn't clear information or evidence that someone close to me did something to that effect their charges and they're being investigated. But again, you cannot imagine the pain that we suffered, especially as the Saudi government from a crime such as this one. That from September of 2019 the interview available at CBS news dot com, and you heard the Saudi Crown Prince to a translator. Again the headline today a new declassified version of the U.

The people who caused the climate crisis aren't the ones who will solve it

"We don't just have a climate crisis. We have a climate leadership prices. We've acted as though an environmental crisis created by corporate and government elites can now somehow be solved by these same corporate and government elites people on the frontlines the people most impacted by wildfires pollution. Rising sea levels have no other role but to suffer censoring. The leadership of these communities in leading us out of this crisis isn't only the just thing to do. It is the most important thing that we can do to actually solve this crisis because people when they take anymore they rise up and they lead us to a better future. Desperate times lead to creative and just solutions by those most impacted. I know that from experience because like so many other low income families searching for livelihoods when my mother brother. I emigrated from colombia. We made our homes alongside landfills incinerators oil refineries power plants and waste treatment plants in neighborhoods that serve as the sacrifice zones to fuel the economy of this nation and oftentimes the world in the seventies in southwest detroit. We live in the shadow of the marathon oil refinery and in the eighties in queens new york we played handball in vacant contaminant. Lots unknowingly breathing in dangerously high levels of sulfur dioxide from power plants nearby in the. Us if you're poor and your indigenous black middle eastern pacific islander asian or latin necks you most often than not live play pray and work in a sacrifice on. I'm saying this because i've been assaulted by. Pollution violence my whole life. And although i've been on the front lines as a climate justice leader for twenty years. I've been envisioning solutions to the environmental crisis. Since i was a kid dreaming up a better world for people like me. People in sacrifice owns that are also leading adjust transition away from this extractive model of development to one feels just for all of us in the name of climate justice so what is climate justice. It's simple if climate change was created by ecconomic and racial injustice than effective solutions to the climate crisis have to include economic and racial justice climate justice centers. The struggle the solutions of those on the frontlines of the crisis communities who have been under resourced and played by everything from police violence racism struggling schools and so much more these same communities have been historically and disproportionately exposed and subjected to pollution and contamination from industry these are the workers who are essential but treated expendable by big corporations corporations and this wildly unjust economic system in which we live in front line communities. Aren't the people whose homes on the beach are being threatened by rosia in their communities and families whose homes are already underwater children already camry from asthma and neighbors who are ready drinking polluted water poisoned water in the midst of a global pandemic multiple uprisings for racial justice democracy and record wildfires droughts storms. It's time we finally realized that we can't fix injustice with more injustice. I'll go so far as to say that frontline communities are the only ones that can get us of this crisis and in fact they already are and there's so many great examples but to give just one in washington state.

The Problem with California's Ethnic Studies

"A controversial curriculum for teaching ethnic studies. In california's public schools will face a final vote in march. Since the first draft of the curriculum came out in two thousand nineteen a coalition of jewish organizations including the american jewish committees. California team has worked together to fine tune the content to be more inclusive define anti semitism and avoid perpetuating the stereotypes that put jews endanger here to talk about the debate surrounding the california curriculum. And why it matters to. All of us is rabbi serena. Eisenberg director of ajc northern california serena welcomed people of the pod for having me so exactly. What is california's ethnic studies curriculum. A start back in two thousand sixteen when the california state. Legislators passed a law. Mandating that the state department of education developed a guidance document for the teachers and administrators so they could implement ethnic studies courses and schools and the reason was because in california students of color account for the majority of the population in our public schools. They speak about ninety different languages so the goal was to prepare pupils to be global citizens with an appreciation for the contributions of multiple cultures. Ajc supported that effort. We believe that k. Through twelve students across california should be able to learn the role of ethnicity race and religion in the life of all of the citizens including maybe even especially those groups have been largely left out of other textbooks and so high quality. Ethnic studies courses can help combat bigotry. He'll some of the really difficult. Racial and ethnic divisions we are facing in this country so whereas we support an inclusive and balanced approach to ethnic studies. What some might call multicultural or constructive. Ethnic studies which focuses on the contributions and challenges of a broad array of ethnic cultures. What happened with the california curriculum. Was that state. Department of education appointed a small advisory committee of teachers who are committed to something called critical ethnic studies. The critical studies association was formed in two thousand eleven with a specific goal of radical resistance. It was anti-capitalist anti-imperialist somewhat neo marxist ideology and this group was what guided the development of the very controversial first draft of the curriculum which was released in two thousand and nineteen. What was controversial about that first draft. The first problem was that it lacked balance running through the entire curriculum. The goal was promoting this narrow critical. Ethnic studies ideology the los angeles times. Editorial board wrote that the curriculum talks about critical thinking but usually offers one side and one side. Only it's more about imposing predigested political views on students than about widening their perspectives. That was the los angeles editorial board. So a second problem was that it was an inclusive. We talked about more multicultural approach which looks at the diversity of olive our california population but this curriculum actually left out a lot of groups including sikhs hindus. Korean syrians armenians jewish americans. It had a very small focus on particular groups and because of that. Ajc formed a multi-ethnic coalition with a number of other ethnic groups to ask for a more inclusive curriculum one lack balance to not inclusive. but three. and. I think what was so outrageous. It really contained a lot of offensive material. There are some examples of antisemitic material the material and even more so material that wasn't even included for example a really extensive glossary in a curriculum. That's designed to combat discrimination didn't include a definition of anti-semitism. This was released just after the shooting and powei so the jewish community was particularly eager to see that anti semitism was going to be taught about in an ethics studies curriculum for california. Was there any kind of explanation as to why anti semitism was left out of the first draft. This paradigm of critical ethnic studies sees the world through a lens of people of color and whites oppressed and oppressors and in that paradigm jews are considered to be white and of course we know jews have a complicated identity managers of color. Many jews meese rothley were middle eastern origin huge number of persian jews in california and so unfortunately the curriculum just consider jesus whites and focused only on four groups of people of color that would be african. Americans latinos native americans and asian americans.

She is co founder and scholar in residence at south center for research and education. So a salaam. Aleikum where i lie. You've got to go to lie. Who didn't honor to be here with you and hound ally. I've been looking at some of your talks online and over the years i've heard about you. Masha llah always want to connect with with yourself. And with my sisters in america so This opportunity today to do that. How from the last the likewise. The work that you do is very impactful and And feed panama. We actually. I used to always wonder who. Who's behind. adam. Feed who's behind venus helen. So wonderful to meet you in even if it's virtually into intimidate the lettuce sister behind this this project wonderful community project michela and we are a team of people and masha. Lots of talented people involved joined the scene. So i feel honored to be part of this project because we try to bring positive inspiration to muslims all around the world so that you that also benefited atlantis. I worked the lao. It's interesting that you know. In the current climate of a pandemic how the programs that are being offered virtually and over the internet have now become so much more significant and so work of the work of and feed. You know is is truly a blessing for our community. And i think that that's something that bef- again before the pandemic it was there and it was beneficial but like during the time the time that people can actually gather is these types of projects that are really helping the communities You know heartbeat collective heartbeat keep pumping you know in the right direction with all. Our warton's reported them egis so My husband i founded a community institution. A i would call it like a community space and more. I guess we could. The best words to describe. It will be an intentional community. Third space project But the the methodist literally memes like a place to sit so people can sit really close together and learn and grow and you know have good companionship in all of that and penalty after the pandemic started. You know we we. We were completely puzzled because the whole idea was local. Sit next to each other. Know each other intimately as a community Support each other as brothers and sisters in person have live relationships and all's antisocial media you know the sense of or Was really like go back to the way things used to be where people would physically go out to a program and drop their kids off at the babysitting and that was really emphasizing that in the pandemic hit and we had we had to overnight transition everything virtually a that was a. That was a big just a challenge for us. But we realize we couldn't resist like this is now the way that we have to be both local and global. It's a lesson we learned the hard way. The the the yeah. I think everyone is having to adapt right by whatever plans anyone had had to rethink them But i've seen people being quite inventive quite like Innovative in their approach is to i guess overcoming the challenges of the pandemic so so tell us a also in california in general. How has it been like the effects of the pandemic and you know. What's the current situation. Are you still in a lockdown. Yeah we're actually. We went back to the most restrictive Phase of the lockdown so we're currently in purple there's different colors and purples the most severe and so that means that's the stay at home order. Which would which is how lockdown started and then it eased off. it transitioned in restaurants. Were open again and people could eat outside You know and now it's the opposite where things that were even slightly accessible are shut down again and So i want to say that the numbers are currently the highest ever been In terms of the numbers of people who are testing positive with covid nineteen and The the icu's are are almost full capacity so it's In that sense it is worse than actually. I mean they're describing in terms of numbers and percentages and on top of that people have covid fatigue so as we're in the beginning people were ready to try their best at this point. A lot of people are Are sort of easing off for I wanna say they're tired of keeping masses on things like that so it's It's a it's back in the next. Three weeks are expected to be probably one of the worst. I mean as according to the cdc the one of the worst health Situations in america and in particular california is bigger. I mean it hits california in a way that's more severe than maybe other parts of the country because of the major metropolitan cities rations of people in small areas

Texas so we're going to today really I want to learn a lot more about you ever because I know so much about you yet.

Saudi Arabia to Host $500,000 Dota 2 League Tournament

"Next thing is also tournament related. This one came out of nowhere. I don't even know what to think so. The Saudi Federation for Electronic, an intellectual sports will be running a five hundred thousand dollar tournament I believe it was at two million ri-als which is equivalent to five hundred, thousand dollars. Between the months of October ninth and December thirty first. This is out of. So. I've obviously had some history Saudi Arabia you know having grown up there and whatnot. So I always have like this. I don't know if affinity is the right word but I root on people that are of Middle Eastern descent when they're playing because it's such a small minority, right? So like Is, basically, collect a collective of a bunch of Middle Eastern people. I don't know anybody like anybody that plays from Saudi Arabia I duNno Saudi Arabia even recognize owed to. Strange. So. So this tournament just to be clear is for Saudi. Arabian players only. Yeah. It's not for the Middle East in general and just called the Saudi Arabian leak. Like it doesn't. Article that we've read what the limitations are for entry. Does five, hundred thousand dollars professional teams of Saudi Arabia region region. Was the Saudi Arabia region as an Saudi Arabia or The middle region maybe it's a sad writing I don't know it. So it could mean a multiple think if it's Middle Eastern, they would have said Middle Eastern. But if it's Saudi Arabian, it could it could mean like some of the countries like around like you know like, Yemen or like Dubai, for example, is probably the most popular eastport area in that region. but I believe five hundred thousand dollars is split between Doda and two other games that they haven't announced yet. But either way that's a shit ton of money Fika? I think is one of them actually. But really out of nowhere. And very interesting. I'M GONNA keep my eye on this one for sure. So it says eight best professional teams of Saudi Arabia region will be competing in the first tournament of the event. So I'm guessing that's And Those eight teams of Saudi Arabia, who are they? What are the best teams in Saudi Arabia? Doda. If United Radio in players, there's not. Yeah I mean it's definitely not a top tier tournament by any means, but is it even to your three? No there's. Player quality I know. I'm trying to think about their some players that might be Saudi Arabia that actually immortal but I'm not sure if they are. I don't think so. It really doesn't sound familiar. So. You'd know better than me. But I've never heard of even one team being Saudi Arabian before so. Question is if these professional teams of Saudi Arabia are allowed to take place from the other regions? That's what I'm looking at here because I know quite a few players from the Middle East that are very high Mr. so if it wasn't Saudi only, you could see some familiar faces in this tournament like for example, offer Moosh or manage or of course. Some of the players from `Nigma if they got into this Yeah. But considering `Nigma haven't announced anything about it. We're going to they're not playing it either because they didn't choose to or because they weren't allowed to I want to say the country that's produced the most players that I've consistently heard of his Jordan would you agree with that from the middle of? The most players you've heard about yeah, which does China, but I don't know if the Middle East Oh. Yeah. For sure I Jordan is the hot spot forever, and that's not that far from Saudi. Arabia? So Yeah. So who who have you heard from Jordan? Miracle. Is One. WHO's the other guy? Might just two people honestly I yep. Sore and maybe there's words we're actually. But even three would be more than any other middle. Eastern. Region because what is G. H. is Lebanon. Lebanese and then. We is. Between Syrian Romanian I consider him Syrian but I know he doesn't because I actually didn't know I thought he was just Flat out the first time I talked with him. I knew he was Middle Eastern right away. Is based on his accent. But, yeah. But yeah, it's really cool to have players in that region and We'll see what the future holds. This is out of nowhere. So I don't know how to react honestly. No, it's been so little promoted. The fact that this article came out after the tournament began it's Kinda. Interesting I, don't know that's true. I forgot it was even October now Jesus. Yeah. The. Going in some capacity, but we just don't know the stretcher.

And as a result of that they've had to lay many people off. They've been forced to clean out their entire Staffing at least a significant portion of it. But the reality is many of those businesses will reopen now, of course A lot of them weren't there will be a lot of companies that will not be able to survive off this downturn. We know that that's the sad reality but let's focus on those that can because those that can survive represent a massive opportunity to you because they're all going to page.

FOF #2896 Peaches Christ and the Witches of East Bay - burst 01

"When you're a drag queen yard time less well at least until your weight starts to break down and your makeup start crack at the end of the night. But time comes for us all even the most legendary drag queens and that doesn't always have to be a scary thing. One of our favorite movies is the witches of Eastwick, which pits three icons, shares, Susan Sarandon, and Michelle pfeiffer against the devil himself as they turned to witchcraft to manage the midlife crisis today San Francisco drag. IMPRESARIO, peaches, Christ chats with us about opening up her vaults of drag parodies for an incident viewing party of her show. The witches of East Bay where Peaches Coco Peru and Chad michaels take a look at what happens when three drag legends get older and a world dominated by pesky drag Queens plus why do J. K. Rowling and other high profile celebrities come out against trans. Inclusion eighties gay icons that became TV commercials, spokespersons and look at the amazing life of Drag Queen Hegi leg. I'm Fausto for no I'm Mark Zalin and this is feast. Five. Before we begin. Let's listen to the trailer for a peaches crisis the witches of East Spe starring Coca, Peru Chad Michaels and Thomas Dekker. You know when you're young queen and you don't understand anything everything's really confusing. CONTOURING and Tucking. You think that when you grow up and become a seasoned queen, that's GonNa make sense and. Still waiting for that day. That day ever come I've discovered that when you're truly fully relaxed, you can open your eyes and see what the world has in store for you. For me, my eyes are most open after I've enjoyed a hot steaming cup of celestial seasonings tension Tamer to. What do you? It's a short life isn't it? We all have fears. Sometimes I i. look in the Mirror and I see everything disintegrating faster and faster. A long career in drag is not for the week. Just burned my mouth. So fucking badly you know life may be short for some. But even if there's like a nuclear Holocaust, I plan on sticking around and partying with the cockroaches not really afraid of death that doesn't mean I don't have fears. You know what I see see snakes like hundreds of them and they're like crawling all over me and then disappear I'm just not there anymore it's really trippy. I don't mind the growing old or that it's a short lifer, the snakes or any of that the the pain that scares me I don't know why there needs to be so much pain in the world often caused by anonymous trolls commenting on social media. Deal the deck. Down here we just. Play the sandwiches. Hello. Hi. Peaches. Christ. Yes it is. What's Your scariest movie? Nights scariest. Say, what's your favorite scary movie. Well that's a nightmare on ELM street. One. I had a really scary movie. It's called the Selfie on my phone. On my God and I take my clothes off and I look into it. And I see myself growing old OH. Oh I used to be an atheist, but then I realized I was a sex God. But now on a sex card decline and nobody wants to worship at my temple. Because I've been stuck at home during covert quarantine. No one loves me anymore, not even myself. How are you doing today peaches? I I was doing fine a moment ago. I. Just I don't even know what was. Not sure. Well, we're kind of like thinking about you you have. Your opening your your default. Clearing the COBWEBS and showing the audiences, what they are throughout the world with really want is some of your productions that you've done over the years you during the witches of East Bay which. You know play on the witches of Eastwick, which kind of deals with. Women of a certain age and how they feel. That that's what you doing. Accuser. So used to hear that all the time this leg. I thought that you were just like you know any the the average gay guy going through his. You know mid life crisis. Interesting thing right. 'cause we live in a consumer society and we sort of been making money or being taught or whatever to not embrace aging and to look at the aging palace as something to be feared. Sometimes. Abhorred emphasis on the. When. You're eighteen. They'll tell you when you're over twenty six nobody wants you then you need S. Over thirty nobody wants you then your early thirties forties death if you're gay and then this comes you know the goal and then you get those ages and you're just like I'm just as fierce as I was back then. Yeah I mean in some in some ways. I would argue that maybe you're fiercer. I think that well, culturally right it's it's not in every culture. Is there sort of this idea of growing old being a bad thing, but it's definitely an American idea for sure or Western young and then I think if you are queer especially a gay man, you know we we adopted so many of the worst parts of. Misogyny. And so we apply that to each other and then I i. Yeah. I think for a lot of queer men sadly. It's a real thing. It's a real problem. Well, it even like in talking about intergenerational relationships or even like you know if you are somebody who is above the age of thirty and you're at a bar and you start flirting with somebody, you know this is the thing is like a lot of these twenty year old tw- inks are hit me on the hookup APPs but out in public, there are like there goes all thousand. And I met you were sending me or Dick Pic last week are you talking to your little secrets? We go out in public. Worrying a mask. Anymore. I'm really loving the mask culture because finally. People to see my face and they can. Say. They just don't even see it. Well, it's like it's like a facelift in sunway tooth kissing goodbye nobody knew. What you're doing you're you're giving into those those ideas of you know this negative ideas about aging. This is about like you know for years we've heard Middle Eastern women. I really like hiding my face and feels very comfortable. People are after. Them they not to stare at me Yes yes. Yes. We're the mask sunglasses like ray bans with mirrors on them and sometimes even a little bike helmet or a hat. So I'm basically just a robot out perfect on everybody just staring at you know staring at anything I want without repercussions about like when you're like totally like staring at a guy is like in you're wearing the mask he can't see when you like licking your lips underneath the mash. Literally drooling once in a while might might mask. The wetness comes through but. Like little, otherwise they how do they know and this is a this is good for straight men to know this like when you're not when you're a straight guy and you think you're too cool for the mask, all of us gaze wearing masks we're just. Per serving on you so hard. With that information. Jim and I see this guy and I'm just like Oh my God he's so bad. He's just like. A moment your way and I'm just like, yes. In the way my heart. Yeah it's true. You're right. You're right. That we should we should probably get back to the which is. How generous of you? To open the show with such such an amazing plug for this upcoming online screening that we're doing, and it's true that that show in a way was about I mean I talked to cocoa and chat about the fact that we were. Older Queens and that that's what the show was going to be about. So you're right. That is what the show is about. It's about is this all there is kind of thing but he ever since I've known Coco Cocos characters been this cool hip tell it like it is. You know Aunty in the Bronx who's like doesn't Old Lady for thirty years and this is why we called got dress up in drag I. think at least for me when I was in my early twenties, it was like, Hey, you can be whoever you want to be for the rest of your life as long as you can get a shake and go wig like Coca Peru and. They'll make it. How did you get cocoa to like actually change wigs because you know she's wearing Like she has. A demented Jan Brady. I guess I get you. We this was the first show. We've ever done together and we had been. In some comedy shows together doing drag Queens of comedy and she passing Lee said like, why haven't you ever asked me to be in one of your shows and I was like Well I mean you never I I I just can't imagine

Saudi King Is Said to Have Successful Gallbladder Surgery

"Moving onto Saudi Arabia. King Salman is spending some time in the hospital there this week Saudi state media report he had surgery to remove his gallbladder, and it was successful nothing life threatening, but whenever an eighty four year old national leader is hospitalized for whatever reason it raises questions for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Those questions about what a possible succession might look like the World Sharon Jafari reports the modern day kingdom of Saudi. Arabia was founded in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty, two, and since. Since, then it's been ruled by the same royal family succession has mostly gone from father to son or brother to brother eighty four year old King Solomon took over from his brother into fifteen. Joseph Russell was the US ambassador to Saudi Arabia back then. Oh, yes, I got to know him very while this describes Kim Samoan as educated Matt. It says the king loves to read to his grandchildren so whenever he went back to New York while says he would buy books as gifts for some on. In the old culture of Saudi culture books never had pictures. That's because the ultra conservatives in the kingdom considered images to be un-islamic, so made sure I brought books a lot pictures. One time was false, as he brought by another bound copy of one thousand and One Nights, a collection of middle. Eastern folktales, and the king loved it. At the opportunity to work with online, I grew very fond of him, but while Kingston Mon- might be the most powerful official in Saudi Arabia. It's his son. Crown Prince Mohammad Bin, Salman who runs the kingdom on a day to day basis. NBS known is next in line to the throne. Nowadays, the process of succession is overseen by a special group of authorities yes-men. Faruk is with Carnegie in. For International, peace in Washington, the previous king had established what they call the allegiance council, which is basically a counseled from the surviving sons of the funder for NPS to become kings. She says this council would initiate a process for members of the royal family to pledge allegiance to the new king, but right now there's a problem. The Allegiance Council doesn't have had the last one died, and I think the position has been vacant for over two years now and one member at least of the allegiance council is under arrest Prince Amit faulk says NBA has been controversial figure since they want his made it his mission to consolidate power and supply line any potential competitor. Nabil Nura an expert on Gulf affairs says MP's has arrested an intimidate viable members of the royal family also rounded up hundreds of businessmen and activists. He was to show that he is the guy for the position, and he wants to make sure that there are no challenges in his way to the throne occupied. Was it all after. that. The king went to the hospital state TV showed him holding a cabinet meeting from there. That's to show that the king is alive and well, and still in charge, but nobody says it's an open secret that MBA's is actively pushing to become king while his father is still around. Why well a number of things one of them is related to the US actually Hamad bin. Salman wants to make sure that he ascends the throne while president. Trump is personally that states trump has been supportive of the crown. Prince says it's not clear if joe. Biden would do the same besides the American election does also the G. Twenty summit in November. It could be a critical moment for MBA's to show that he is in charge. And some people from the Royal Family might not be happy with Hamad bin Salman, being king, so hammered. This might ascend the throne while his father is still alive to make sure that everything goes smoothly. So where does all this leave the US? Saudi relations Yes menfolk says NBA is a controversial figure in Washington DC. She says it's not internal policies that have raised eyebrows NBA has has been the war in Yemen and according to the CIA or did. Did the kidding of Washington Post columnist Jamal and unfortunately like many things inside Washington there is polarization and the debate is very much politicized, but let me tell you that the concern, the uncertainty about the rule of Mohammad Bin, Salman is certainly bipartisan. People differ on what to do about it, folks. Some things have not changed Saudi Arabia remains a key player in the global oil market and president. Trump has boasted about selling weapons to the king. Now with the possibility of political transition in both countries on the horizon, there are big questions about the future of the relationship between the two longtime allies.

"Their then re-exported from Jebel Ali into Dollah again that was stopped, and so this was. A seismic and of a blockade in. Any country let alone a very small country of three hundred thousand nationals, which is canceled, and it was an epoch and of defining friend. The countries think broadly survived. They think the prospects this day. They immediately sort of reached out and Sasha relations and a lot of. Students in from Iran. Mike about to the Turkish relations stage. but yet it Bandana hatches and their survived. Not least because most cats on his fantastically wealthy country again you know some the largest and gas exports in the world. Very significant oil exports still again split between three thousand nationals means they're. On a pet capitol basis, there's no set on earth anywhere near as which is. and. That was shooting puzzle. So part of the reason, you mentioned part of the reason why they of got through is because of their wealth, but I'm how much of their sort of The investment, strategy, in the US and in in the UK and France. How much of that contributed to of the overall protection? Really good question so. Back in the day. Decade. Page research and so on I was I, was wondering to myself in council had a a p five strategy as N. P., five of the five hundred members of the UN Security Council, so, is this actually a goal I? Don't think actually wallets, but. This is useful to explain so you could make a case that cats on had brilliant relations with the US crucial member of the UN Security Council not least because. At least two enormous very important US de facto US military base, in Kansas though Hata had very close relations the US military angle. The very least. UK on the permanent. In the P five as well so Qatar had what back in the day twenty billion pounds of Jerusalem in the Ajay as double, if not more than that was also very strong, cultural economic. Educational and So that was the Brits perhaps intensive France again? You had A. Amount of investments as well particularly in the military sector by the national. Maybe out was you know the the French on side as well then he had. China Always. She got us a less without. Evasive getting energy customer a supply to give me from. China and A Chinese relationships would show up in that sense when it came to Russia I mean you could maybe M- Marshall, an argument that they were a ideas of how tall Russia and of a significant gas exposes. Forming a gas equivalent of OPEC. The oil consortium lieutenant as it goes I mean there's still an institution going in that sort of stay by it just never had the take, but to your point exactly I think it really was this sense that. Cata, was you know cats benefited in variety? Whereas if you've got sped cashing yourself and wealth, and then if you want to invest in London than find you know you invested in London Gay. To derive a segment wealth that you probably make the. Conclusion that it's a safe bet in the long term, good chunk of London mistake navy. That's very good loan and investment. But again to your question that there are these other sentiment surrounding the maybe it's about leveraging political capital boosting. Relationship with power in London Washington wherever mypillow and so I think you've long seen this idea. Underpinning a lot of cats is are of cost. This can bleed into talking about soft power things as well as lots so to talk about in this discussion, but. While we should talk about these other facets. Sometimes, the caught goes identifying the hall of mustn't forget that solving wealth fund is usually first and foremost about salting away in securing the state's wealth, and so we can, and we should bring in these other elements to hatch reinvestment amarante. Your Saudi message should. and. But as long as you don't forget that sometimes, it's just a good deal on that spectrum. Absolutely I'm, but I mean. Given that Dave, sue of CA came into the UK and in European so of Changed up in industries, for example, the Sports Industries they you know purchased these football clubs on essentially change the pricing mechanism altogether in in of buying plays and stuff like that One would sort of. Off The question. Is it really a good deal for them. To. Come in and stuff spend spending lavishly on on players and things like that, and then essentially becomes a competition, neither famously they had that you know the they outbid one another for the the famous Davinci painting. And so these questions who have. Is it so much of an investment. It's a sound investment. Decision it. More political undertones through. Its. Question! It's deceptively complex question rainy. Because when he comes to full investments in particularly, you really are bringing in a lot of other issues, aside from the concept of returns very much are and so you know. Awesome Butts I've been thinking of into Saudi, Arabia in a new hostel. Enjoy imagine. And but talk about catheters second so this talking about are essentially basically and. This was very much. They spend the country takeover defacto take of the global majority shareholder would of the exotic phrasing should be. Business number of years ago now, and this was very wrapped up in a lot of the political issues is is a deal broadly. Put together on day. Put together, but Christian by to name with Nicolas Sarkozy at the there was a Bengal colony capital that. Those Michel Platini though in is a famous. It's written about in the Guardian on Zip famous dinner with all of these.

A sleeping giant of its piracy's broadly a one a town as From a sporting point of view, it's potentially very solid investment in that sense, but at the same time you had allergies era.

Floor I started the. Lived in quite for a couple of years goes a teacher. Took my interests in the region. And, then I was fortunate to. Snack got scholarship to study. Not specifically the golf, but is an Arab studies programs. I decided to focus on the Gulf. And as I always say there was this funny little country beginning Jude that ten years ago, it was doing all this weeds of from Aljazeera to relations with Iran and Hamas sins problems with Saudi little baton US bases since the. All over the place as Mediation going on. And back then not really that much was written on catastrophically honest, and of course when the rights host the will govern.

Foreign Security and defence policy again with the same sort of areement to try to work out what is going on in the monarchy's. And so you're. So as I understand, your main source of interest started from Qatar. Yes that was my PhD. The the pasty focus was examining catchy foreign policy. Changes and Catchy Forum as from eighteen ninety s and onwards again to find out what this state was up to very few meaning exclamations on off the back then and so. You know even back then you come possibly understand cantor in of itself without contextualising intends in its relations in the the Gulf Cooperation Council, you're the monarchy's on the peninsula and much further afield with the US and the UK.

I'm wondering are always changing entitled something like continuity and Change in the monarch is is when you go back into the twentieth century like we have the beginning nineteen hundreds, and you do find this theme repetition that you know there's nothing under the sun is the phrase goes that you have as really young monarchs always come to the power and denise go on classic things going well as the twentieth century, and so what we see now you know is obviously knew in in a way.

Archbishop of Canterbury says Church needs to reconsider portraying Jesus as white

"I WANNA. Do a follow up a little bit on. Something that we've talked about. A couple of weeks now on the show or at least come up and then we kind of really addressed it. And that's the idea of like white Jesus right why Jesus Jesus so this is an ongoing saga. of people rightfully pointing out the fact that the European and North American version of Jesus is. Racist. Wrong. It's wrong, and it's an an and it's. Definitely leads to sort of this white supremacy sort of thing right because like. Devoid surpremacy leading-edge. Yeah absolutely well. As? The arch. Bitch Bishop of Canterbury one Mr Justin Welby He's the head of the Church of England of course He was on the BBC. BBC Radio Four. And he was asked about what he thought about the Western image of Jesus, and maybe if it should be reimagined. And goes sure, yes, of course, it does right. And he, which I guess probably is not all that surprising. When you know a few things about you know Church of England, but he goes on. He says that he has seen Jesus portrayed in different countries during his travels. You go into their churches, and you don't see a white Jesus you see a black Jesus or Chinese, Jesus or Middle Eastern Jesus, which is of course, the most accurate. you see Jian Jesus you see Jesus portrayed as many ways as there are cultures languages. An understanding's is what he says. Okay, and so I've never seen a Figi Jesus. Will. Have you ever been to Fiji? I have a feeling he might have been. Sure why not but nonetheless the? This caused a little bit of a stir in the UK, you know. People are going to disagree with any sort of thing. Anyway. He was denounced by all sorts of types I'm sure they're conservative types, or whatever right, but one of the things. That I think this raises. Is. It kind of a question of if you know. If you can create your God basically in your own image, right? Right like what? What does it matter? Doesn't that just backup the whole thing that you are creating your God own image? Always you're. You're like like right, so it's just made manifest this thing that people already already do and it's just so just so happens it. It's little problematic. Extra problematic perhaps with white people. Really to think we're the best you know. It's just so funny it's just like I. If you are unwilling to just go with the historical guy that you're pretending is, the is the reason for your whole religion like there's this. That you're super into. He's your, do yeah. If. You can't just go with him right. then. You're making it up. You're admitting that you're making it up. So I think you got a bit of a problem there. Guys let him be Middle Eastern what's the problem? You know what he looked like. We all know if you if I showed you twenty two pictures of. dudes from different parts of the world, said point to the guys that might be Middle Eastern. You're probably going to get it right. Yeah as four you know. Which one of these do you think Jesus actually looked like? ooh, that's. Why is that so hard? That, why is that so hard?

"BC The same time spices were incredibly popular in India and then later in Greece in Rome in Medieval Europe spices. Were more expensive with pound of saffron cost as much as a horse and that his prices fell so did use post revolution. French cooking was a spice free zone. Well today spices aces are back in favour. Maybe some day. We'll know as much about them as the king of Babylon almost three thousand years ago It's time to chat with Catherine part about this week's recipe Taiwanese beef noodles soup Catherine Harry. I'm great thanks. How are you you know when I went to Taipei not too long ago I spent half a day with Jong Bow? Washy is a culinary teacher. Very well known. She's taught over seventy thousand students and she has a very simple schools on the second floor of a sort of nondescript commercial building and we made a couple of recipes this one was beef noodle soup now it takes a couple hours. She uses beef bones. She's beef suet. She uses maybe twenty different spices and ingredients walk and she uses also so a big pot and it was great but obviously a lot of work to transported and make it for the American Home Cook. So how do we take that recipe and transform it here Milk Street. Well Chris. We had our work cut out for us. So what we decided to do is just start by Szott tenure aromatic so your ginger your garlic. Some spices star are ns that kind of builds the flavor base and then we didn't make homemade stock and we didn't use store bought stock. We just simmered beef shanks which was the cut that we found produce really tender under meet in a really flavorful stock. We simmered that and that makes the base and then you just read the meets at back into the broth with some store bought wheat noodles. You're looking for a fresh noodle. Any sort of Asian style fresh wheat noodle and then we finish it was some Greens. So Chris once you add the beef shanks you just want to keep it at a summer. Make sure it's not boiling oiling to aggressively. But then you can just kind of go about your day. It's going to hang out for about two hours before you shred the meat and add it back into the pot with noodles and the Greens so it takes about the same time that it took in Taipei but with about half as many ingredients yes and I think it's important to say Chris. What an incredibly flavorful dish? This is There's a little bit of have a longer ingredient list but the actual work is very minimal. And it's extremely flavorful and packed with Mommy Meat Broth Noodles and Greens. I mean that's why it's the national dish Taiwan and it was like the perfect combination. Catherine thank you. Thanks Chris..

"Fixed it we need to let go of that immediately again because it's not new this has happened to us before and it is an exploit -able weakness and a country that claims to be the greatest democracy on the planet as obvious from the way, exactly what you say the way they describe them exploiting that in the report. And so I just think you know, as we're forward facing as we're looking to the future. To think that we can protect these insecurities without dealing with our past. Is false. I'm trying to think about the questions people have asked me about the report we've kind of been diving right into it. So to step back a little bit. The report lays out. Lots of different points of connection between people who worked on the Trump campaign, and sort of the immediate periphery of the Trump campaign people like Roger stone much of the Roger stone section is heavily redacted because of the ongoing criminal charges pending against Roger stone. But the report talks about all these points of connection, and they are complex sometimes they feel a little bit random. There isn't one good beginning to end story that threads through this whole thing. It is someone reached out tested something the Trump campaign took the bait. They have the meeting it disappoints, the Trump campaign because it was more of a test balloon than we are actually going to get in this together. So when you talk about collusion, the report is very careful in saying collusion is not a thing in federal criminal law. That is a word that everyone uses about this. But that is not what we are looking for the report really doesn't say there was no collusion. It just says collusion is not our line of questioning our line of questioning is was there a crime in the form of conspiracy. And here's what that could mean. But it's not collusion, and they come up with a definition for coordination that would lead to a criminal conclusion here, and they decide those acts were never fully completed. There was. A lot of talk. There was a lot of appreciation for WikiLeaks. And for information coming out about Hillary Clinton that was damaging to her that directly came from stolen emails. But it never ripened into enough of a relationship between the Trump campaign and people in Russia, actively working together for it to rise to a crime. And so if you're wondering like, how did we get to know collusion? I think that's the path and the attorney general stepped in and said, I'm gonna put this in terms Intel you everything's fine. And I think that bridge is too far because a lot of ways, Sarah, I'm curious what you think about this. The report read to me a little bit like the James Komi press conference about Hillary Clinton where it was a scolding. It was scathing disapproval of what happened and still the decision not to prosecute. I think it is what you often talk about which is what we want. And I'm not really sure we told Bob Muller. What we wanted? You know what I mean? Like with particularly with regards to collusion. We didn't. We didn't go into this. Knowing what we were looking for in a way. And I think this is Democrats fault too. Because what we did know what we wanted. We wanted like highly treasonous..

"We had just gotten home from all of our travels, and I flipped on cable news just to have on while I was cleaning up my kitchen. I was kind of trying to reorient myself to both my house and to the kind of thinking that idea about the news when we aren't on an airplane. You know, three quarters of every day. And I heard this announcement that the attorney general would be holding a press conference at nine thirty the next morning followed by like an eleven AM release the Muller report. And then shortly after that, I heard this evening, Jerry Nadler will be holding a press conference about the attorney general's decision to hold a press conference. And I thought well, I'm back. Okay. I got. But for those of you who didn't watch the press conference. We should just say the attorney general said, I think six times that the conclusion of the report was that. There was no collusion between the president his family his campaign and Russia that he and rod Rosenstein heads in disagreement with the analysis around obstruction, but ultimately had to make a call that was their call to make that no obstruction occurred. I thought that that statement that sort of editorial we disagreed with some of the analysis was really unfortunate. Because then he didn't say here are the pieces of that analysis. Right. It was just a generalized kind of casting aspersion on the work that had been done in the report he did say that here are the reductions in the four categories of reductions, which we'll talk about an second. And then he took some questions and people reporters just ask him. You seem like the president's attorney right now instead of the attorney general why is that? And he refused to answer and. And got really aggravated and ended after I don't know four questions or so I think this press conference was not only a bad idea and had a bad impact for the Justice department. I don't really think it was great for Trump either. Well, I think it. Diminish the credibility of the attorney general. In a way that will have long term consequences and short term consequences because anyone who thought the release of the mullahs report would be a conclusion that blown out of the water quickly by this press conference. It just opened the door to questions upon questions and instead of allowing the attorney general to testify an answer them. He basically said we'll I'm not a reliable source because I am very clearly and politically protecting the president. So you're going to need to call somebody else to testify if you want the straight dope on this report, most likely Muller. I mean, I don't know if anything he could have said are done would have prevented some members of congress from calling for Muller to testify, but I think he just increase their ranks with that press conference..

"Baptist church import bear, Louisiana and on Oprah. Second arson was committed at the greater union Baptist church and Opelousas and then on April fourth Mount Pleasant Baptist church. So these were historically black places of worship, and luckily, and positively there was a huge amount of fundraising on behalf of these churches. And I think they've all more than met their fundraising goals, but I think that reaction was appropriate. Like, why are we pouring in money into this place that the whole world supports? It's gonna have no problem fundraising. And he's hysterical. Black churches were not just the scene of accidents. But the scene of arson, and they really need our help. Holden Mathews has been charged with hate crimes in connection with burning these churches with arson and with aggravated arson. The part of this story that really moved me is how the community came together around it and pastures at nearby churches. Started doing things to try to defend their churches. They were sleeping in the churches. They were sleeping in church parking lots of it's just really touching reminder of what spaces like this mean to people and how acts of terrorism like this actually terrorize folks, you know, it puts you in that space of really worrying about your people and your place, and I'm glad that these stories received more attention. I hate that. It took the fire at Notre Dame to put the spotlight on these churches that they deserved, but we're thinking of those communities as well. The other development we wanted to discuss was the State Department has decided to end waivers for a rainy and oil as of may second. So if you import rainy. Oil you will be subject to sanctions from the United States. This is expected to cause a large amount of market disruption and mainly benefits Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates so countries that are currently receiving waivers. Are they're going to get anxious. If they don't they don't cut off all the supply of Iranian oil, and that's China. India Turkey, Japan and South Korea. The State Department says that market disruption should be minimal because oil supply is greater than demand. I think that ignores the complex interplay of the actual market and geopolitical tension because this is all happening while we are trying to drop an accord with China to turn the temperature down on our trade tensions. You have all of these companies that are nervous about investment between the US in China because of the terrorists that have gone into place. Saudi Arabia is the center of lots of global side. I at least right because of Jamaica shows us death because of the war in Yemen. And for us to make a move that. So clearly benefit Saudi Arabia in the midst of everything else that we've done in the Middle East recently. I think is short-sighted is a generous way to describe it. So I don't know what the administration's in game is with Iran. You know, it seems like Pompeo and Bolton to different degrees. I don't think Pompeo is as committed to this Bolton. But it's it's usually Bolton just wants a war with Iran. Is that too strong? No, I think that's accurate to me. And and why what is the what is the endgame there? I just don't understand. This is not nuanced because he's a little bit crazy. I think he just as an individual has a very particular extreme global view of the world, even in this ext. Stream view of the world though. I just I don't understand how you look at history and think the best thing for our country is another armed conflict with a power in the Middle East. We we know from experience that we end up staying for years and years. I don't think there is a version of the future that looks like an Iran, that's a great friend of the United States. And I don't know it just troubles me that we seem to keep repeating the mistakes of the past in and freezing out, Iran. Economically, undesired, not sure what we're trying to gain from that. What makes me sad about the seemingly naked motivation of promoting Saudi Arabians interest is I'm reading and I keep talking about it 'cause it's five hundred pages long. So I've been reading it for a while stamped from the beginning the definitive history of racist ideas in America by Abram, mex-, Kindy and one of the. Really, interesting points..

"And so any support is much appreciated. Easter Sunday was a difficult one this year for a number of reasons we should start off by just saying how much we are holding Rachel held Evans and her family in our hearts in our prayers for those of you who don't know ritual was a guest on our podcast to talk about her book. Inspired. She is a good friend. She and Sarah Bessie and Jeff chew put together the evolving faith conference will where we'll be speaking this fall and Rachel is in a medically induced coma right now after suffering seizures in response to a medication. I believe that she was taking four an infection. And so we are just torn up about that. And really hopeful for a good outcome soon for her and her family also Easter Sunday was difficult because in Sri Lanka two hundred ninety people were killed and more than five hundred were injured in a series of bombings at three churches and hotels the government of. Sri Lanka has sent a couple mixed messages. The defense minister says that it was religious extremists. The health minister says that it was unrelated domestic basically gangs. So it's really still in the process of gathering information in developing this story, we don't have a complete picture on who organized this attack and their connection to any global tear networks, and no group has claimed responsibility, yet Christians are religious minority in Sri Lanka and these attacks took place, obviously on Easter Sunday in Catholic and Protestant services. Just a devastating time for that country. It's ten years out from the end of a civil war. I talked more about this on the nightly nuance on patriots. But the history of that country makes us particularly hard. And we're just hoping for more information and for peace and calm and holding the grief of tree Lankan's in our hearts as well. In. In France, the yellow vest protest turned violent again this weekend..

"And you can see what their feed saying they're putting out positive. You know information about like who you are. And what like how to deal with things? And I you know, like you. I mean, I hate to say Facebook because Facebook is the worst. But like groups on, you know, those kind of social media's Raymond like Instagram you can like follow hashtags of, you know, like women who like like, I do with eyebrows. And there's all these like beautiful women of color with their eyebrows. And I'm like, wow, what a world I'm obsessed with eyebrows. But you know, and that I think really helps broaden our horizon, especially now that we all have phones. And of course, there's a dark side to all of it. But I think having the access to explore especially women getting podcasts. And like hearing our show is just it's important for. The representation because now is just so much more widespread, and you can access it anywhere. Yeah. Especially because of the majority of podcasts and podcast listeners are white men. Like, they're hosted by white men or the listeners are white men. So we're already like trying to break that that barrier. I think as much as I appreciate and I really do appreciate all those magazines that are catered towards those nieces, whether it's clear identity, whether it's religion or being marginalized person, I think unless you seek out those things you won't know they're there. And I think it's going to take a long time for them to be mainstream to beat to to have a person of color on the cover of a magazine without being a big deal, or you know, what I mean, it shouldn't I want those magazines that are specific to those people and into different people to be mainstream too. You know what I mean? Like, that's the best. What bothers me. It's just like me, Anna, we're on a podcast panel in. In Philadelphia this past summer, and it was a huge podcasting event. And there are multiple panelists multiple panels going on meet Anna, or we're onto panels that were like about being like bring diversity into the podcast landscape and like not being white. But then we found out there was a woman in podcasting panel with all white woman. And so as much as that is helpful for us to be there and talk about those issues. We can also talk about other things we had you know, what I mean like expertise are not just being diverse. Exactly. So I think it's it's just baby steps and change takes so long and as much as good as much good as there has been you in the recent history. I think we have a long way to go. But yeah, just like, for example, I'm really mad about the Aladdin movie coming up because I thought like the role of jasmine was the first thing that's an Arab roll like Arab woman can finally be. Unscreened doing what she's like like the the person the only person that she could like grab hold of us growing up like who she was. And then they gave it to a half Indian half white person. And that's totally fine. Like, I'm sure maybe the MO like, the average American or westerner. Can't tell the difference between what they look like between like me and this half white half Indian may look similar to them. But to me, it was important to me that representation was given away when it should have been hours. And so I think I think people don't realize the importance of that. And especially big studio heads artists like in it for the money like whether it's this Lena Dunham movie that's coming out directed by Lena Dunham, very privileged white woman. She's directing adapting Syria Syrian refugee story. Like, really like that's the person you selected like it's just as long as white. Maybe like slightly ignorant. People are in power. They're going to keep hiring themselves and not think that like maybe the story can be better told from an actual person like a Syrian director or Syrian filmmakers pointed you, so I think there's a long way to go. I feel like I've gone in trouble on our show for like making. It seem like a hate white people. And that's not the point. I just think I'm just very honest about the the power structure of society. And if if if people are uncomfortable with me, like a call, I say Whitey all the time just like as a way like to be playful, but I've got in trouble for it. But it's not about hating the white, man. It's about criticizing them, and knowing they have to make an effort to change like Spielberg and Abrahams people hire Lena Dunham for that project. They're just as at fault as she is for accepting that project like they were the ones that shows her. They were the ones that deemed appropriate for the role. So. A huge toxic. Society may be I'm just more attuned to the filmmaking side of it and more sensitive to that because I'm a filmmaker. But, but yeah, I think we have a long way to go. It's hard for this long tangent. I'm just very heated about this topic. Yeah. I'm gonna I'm gonna I'm gonna stop now. It's great. You're just calling it like you see it. So for the the younger version of of you that may be listening to this and is self conscious about her eyebrows. Or whatever, it might be do you have any advice that you would that you wish you would gotten or that you would give? Probably that it gets better that you're not gonna get stuck in this like phase, you're and that you will be constantly evolving. As a person, your parents will be evolving, your life is going to change like things are going to happen. You're gonna learn to love your eyebrows. Bushy? Eyebrows are going to be trendy again. You know, like the things the world is constantly changing. And there's room there space for everybody. And you will find your space, even if you start to realize your weirdness is actually more unique than you thought. Standing outs actually, pretty cool. Like, you you're going to learn and see that it wasn't all like, the you're not going to be stuck in that moment. Forever. Where you're like dreading your life in your experiences because your parents are too strict or because you look a different way or because you just are weird in general different everything changes in everything, you know, you're you'll learn to love yourself eventually. And if not there's always therapy, I feel like mental illness is not discussed at all Middle Eastern communities, and I think it's so important. To be like, if you need to talk to someone don't think because your parents don't understand why that you shouldn't go and explore that option. Yeah. One hundred percent way. And is it I think I mean, if I had known that bushy eyebrows would come back that was just if I had a time machine. But yeah, just knowing that the things that make you feel weird and the things that make you feel so different strange or the things that will make you so unique and beautiful and strong and mental illness the same thing like I struggled a lot when I was younger, and it was not something to talk about. It was something to address and so encouraging myself to be more to to take care of my mental health and to know that I'm not broken, I'm not damaged. I wrote a lot of poetry about going through mental illnesses and like, depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts and a use the as a catharsis therapy for myself, but it wasn't enough. And so taking your health. Into your own hands. Even if your parents are a little bit stubborn about it or a little bit. Maybe they've never experienced it before me, they don't know that you're going through something and especially immigrant communities. They're not very open about mental health. And so I think knowing that like it will you will be okay. Like if you stick around long enough, you'll you'll realize like weird is a good thing. I love being weird now I love being a weirdo. I love being a nerd living a weirdo. I love those things made me feel awful when I was younger for made me feel like an alien. And now I love being that. And so I think the hardest thing for me is because I was very suicidal growing up. And so it breaks my heart to think of like another person out there that feels the same way. I did. And so just knowing that I mean, like a, hey, it's it sounds cliche. But it does get easier. If you just let yourself. Grow and learn and slowly learn to love yourself, and I'm still learning to love myself. It's definitely a process just find things that make you happy. Even if it's like for only a little moments, whether it's poetry, whether it's photography, whether it's writing or anything, I think knowing that you're important. There's the way you are. And altering yourself is not going to make you any happier is just going to make you more confused, but your identity, and I don't know if I'm answering the question, I just keep talking you are that's wonderful advice. And I think for someone when you're younger, and you hear that over and over again, it's hard it can be hard to accept. But that's what that's what I didn't want. I mean, like if I was hearing this when I was younger if I was like it'll get easier. I'd be like Q, right? No it does. He have no idea. What's in my head? You have nobody. What's it what I'm going through? But you do feel very alone. And I think. Being being okay with yourself. When you're alone used to happen. In the process of loving yourself. And so just knowing that like it'll take time to do that. Yeah. I don't know. I think that that is a wonderful place to end it unless you either of you have anything that you would like to add. I mean, that's it. Thank you so much for having us. I know thank you so much for having us means a lot to us. Yeah. Oh so much for coming on. This was such a lovely conversation.

"Grounded. But yeah, like I had a lot of guy friends growing up. But I think my parents. I think we just assumed I we were at arm's length, and I truly was until college like I was very like anti touch until college. And I started like explore more because I was like touching this. Oh bed and then, but yeah, dating was not allowed even now. It's just not. I think my parents would love if we all married, great Muslim men, and like my older sister got engaged recently. He converted for her just on paper. I think it's very just like for my dad's peace of mind. And and now he's so happy. He's the have you ever seen him like not only she doctor? He's engaged to one. So I cannot top that. So I'm not going to try. Yeah. That's probably wise. So something that probably will come as a surprise to it probably won't come as sprays to you. And it probably won't come to a surprise to anyone. But representation of Middle Eastern women are or middle easterners in general. And the media is not terrible. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Was is that something that? As a child. Did you? Notice that or internalize that or I mean, I know now is looking back that it's it you must be able to say like, oh my God. I only saw this and this. But as a child not seeing yourself are only seeing negative portrayals almost exclusively was that. Was that the case for both of you? Yeah. I mean only person I knew of growing up was Christiane Amanpour shoes. The only woman she was a journalist. I looked up to I always made my dad put the news on when she was on. And that was all I had. I was like, she's a journalist. Wow. Like, maybe one day. All do this just something look at her. She's on TV she's doing and that was it like I had no sense of anyone else. Like to me. I was like, you know, we can only be doctors lawyers engineers is that's what your parents tell you literally from the womb is like point at the doctor delivered you and be like, that's your future. And that's that. And you're like, okay. But like, I seeing her have this kind of you know, I mean Christiane Amanpour is she's not nobody she'd actually is a very respected journalist, but like. To get to that point where I could be like, I could be a writer, or, you know, I mean podcasting at the time I had no sense of it. But like it didn't exist, but to to be someone who could report on things in the news. And and that was really crazy to me. And I was like, well, that's kinda what I wanna do. I know I want to get into some sort of like news at the time. I didn't know what I knew I wanted to write. I had this idea. Like, I would be a journalist or something like that. And I never said that out loud to my parents because it would kill them, and they would be mean about, but that's what I had. And there was no I think that was it like I had no sense of anyone else. Yeah. That was the only profession I thought I could go to that wasn't one of the ones. My parents wanted. Yeah. I I never saw myself at all. And that really. Made me feel like nothing was possible. I very early on. I knew I love making people laugh, and I think deep down I wanted to be in comedian, and I never told us soul. I never told anyone that I wanted to be comedian. And then I studied a lot of photography, and I took a lot of photo and our history class in high school, and I realized like maybe I can make a living out of this. And so then I wanted to study art, but my parents, I mean, they were very supported by the time the very supportive now. But at the time we had our troubles, and yeah, I just never saw anyone that looked like me doing anything that I wanted to do and never saw any comedians that looked like me and never saw any artists that looked like me, any filmmakers directors, and he writers like I'm a filmmaker now and I Ryan direct my own stuff. But if I had seen someone doing that when I was younger, I would've done it a lot earlier I would have known. It was possible. A lot earlier known that that was an option for me. I think that's why I'm sometimes envious of those that are raised. In the entertainment industry because they're raised already knowing it's a possible career choice. And yeah, I always wrote a lot of poetry. I was a big writer a big reader growing up. And so I knew I loved the arts and I loved writing, and I love creating things, but I never saw anyone doing it. And I didn't stop me from doing it on my own. But it did stopping for thinking. It was something I could live off of and that's kind of unfortunate because for like most of high school, even though I wasn't art and everything I convinced myself that I wanted to be a psychiatrist I convinced myself wanting to be like a neurologists or something because I love my like, the idea of the brain, I was very depressed. And so the idea of mental illness was something that was very fascinating to me. And I convinced myself that like I can do my own stuff on the side. But for money have to do this that I failed AP chemistry. So I was like maybe not so yeah, I think that's a huge reason why we started the podcast is to be more visible to the younger versions of ourselves. All my work, really revolves around the younger version of me like making sure she. He would be looking at me being like, yeah. I can't do this. Whether it's poetry or filmmaking or photography or podcasting or anything, I think allowing ourselves this platform has really been empowering for the both of us and our voices are important, even if they weren't that accessible back then and I remember, Sarah Silverman. Being the only person I thought kind of looks like me shit like dark hair and talked about depression a lot and I'm preaching it her for that. She liked talks about not wanting kids and talked about like just done like things related to. But choose the white Jewish woman. Like, I had to draw from very small images of myself that weren't even me. But yeah, I think that was that's a huge reason. Why I want to stay in the industry and keep working in industries because I need to represent myself because no one else will. Yeah. We've talked about on this show before so many times the importance of seeing yourself represented and what you're describing sounds kind of cyclical, right? Because if you never see yourself, then maybe you think is an option available for you. And so then it continues like we're only hearing from the same types of people on the same types of stories. So I I am glad that's changing have you? Do you feel like are there things that you've seen that are positive of signs of change other than the both of you out there making contents fours? I think social media helps a lot to get hopes. Open the door for people like like on Twitter, like different magazines around here like Muslim girl MAG like, there's all these different groups that you can like turn to and

Bridget bird is redefining what it means to be young single and demaim raw honest and relatable smell stars. Frankie shaw. Rosie O'Donnell and Connie Britton, new episodes. Start streaming January twentieth. Only on Showtime. I this is Anne, and you're listening to stuff mom never told you. And today, I'm so excited to be joined by Anna answering the host of the podcast ethnically ambiguous. Which if you haven't checked out, you should thank you so much to both of you for joining us. In as Anna. And we are very happy to be here. We love your podcast, and this is so cool. Yeah. I'm so happy to have you. And I love your podcast as well. I love your music. Could they tell? No, what is it that? I was just like a fun project. We did together like like almost a year and a half ago now. Right. When we first started the thing. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Most fun most wanting I love it. Could you tell us a little bit about yourselves and your show? Yeah. So mean, Anna met in college where we became closer? When we both round ourselves in LA like pursuing production that entertainment stuff and film and so became closer. And we wanted to have a space in the industry for people like us are Middle Eastern because we never saw our selves in the media at all. And we the more we talk to each other the more we realize voices, I really important. And so we made a YouTube show that was kind of short lived by the same name, but ended up making the podcast ethnically and big to highlight Middle Eastern news that doesn't really get talked about in western media and also bring attention to people of color and women and. Just people in the community that are doing really cool things. And I'm Syrian American and my family was he immigrated from Syria, and then Anna, I'm Iranian American. My parents are both from Iran, and yeah, we just we just needed a space. Also, like talk about things that like most people whenever relate to, but we just want to who are basically people around us when it relate to us. But then like in the greater sphere of the world. There were all these different people that we knew would understand what we were talking about just needed to reach them somehow. Yeah. So like being children of immigrants being like the hairy like person in school or like having big eyebrows, or whatever, and we talked about all these things that made us feel really alienated, and we are growing up. But now it's bringing people like together with our podcast. So it's really cool. Yeah. I love that. That's one of my favorite things about podcasting is how hearing from people who've said I grew up in a small town. And I never got to. I see myself for even hear myself reflected around me, but having podcasts made me feel less alone. And it showed me that there was a big world out there. And there were other people like me. Yeah. Yeah. It's really humbling when that happens because we get letters early emails and messages from people, and I genuinely like forget that we have or sometimes like I'm just having a conversation with Hannah. And then like, I leave the room, and it's fine. But then when we get messages like that, it's like, oh, this is why we're doing it like, it's really important. Yeah. It just means a lot to me that when when we talk about personal things that maybe are hard for us. And then to get a good response. I think it's really amazing platform. Yeah. And I feel I feel like if I only had something like this growing up. I would have been less of a weirdo. Rick Lewis because I just felt like I didn't fit in anywhere with anyone. And it's nice to hear just someone. Be like. Yeah. I went through that exact same and nobody got it. Yeah. And it's really cool being that person that someone's like, oh, I'm not alone. Like, if we can be that person or those people to even like a handful of listeners that would make everything worth it. But the fact that we have more than that and people appreciate it.

"Need this problem fixed. Well, what was the problem that had to be fixed afterwards? The problem would have to be fixed afterwards is they lost the election. They had to take Trump town. So they had a fabricate a crime. Clearly, the Russian collusion thing didn't happen is falling apart. So there was always going to be a u turn towards something else that you turn towards something else. Started to materialize. It apparently is going to be two things right now, which one I already discussed. So I'm not gonna harp on too much, which is the alleged campaign finance violations, which I've discussed for two days. Now, you can listen to yesterday's show by the Trump team, which are BS they're not in fact, campaign donations at all. It's a fabricated made up case. So we can forget that. But that's not good enough. Get them getting some traffic here that what we talked about months ago is starting to materialize. And that is the George Nader connection wall. This story is just peachy. I call this in my notes show, the flip through the flip arose coming now, it's not gonna be Russian collusion anymore because that didn't happen. It's going to be Middle Eastern collusion. Oh. You know eastern collusion that sounds bad too. Isn't it? Yeah. Keep in mind Middle Eastern collusion emanating from Democrats who supported a deal to give the Iranians billions of dollars and pallets full a cash as well. So let's forget that for. You know, the Persia Middle East connection. Let let let's not get into any of that. Let's leave that all behind for a minute, right? Because that was the Obama administration's thing. Yeah. Their connection to Iran. Let's leave that all behind. But the fixer is creeping up again who was now I'm hearing a rumor now, and it's a good one that he's making a u-turn, and he's going to cover this Middle Eastern connection and his his source in this case is no the George Nader, George Nader. According to multiple reports was one of the guys who set up he has been involved with politicians for Democrats and Republicans ministrations forever. He's one of these guys that just has connections and connects people nobody really knows what they do how they do it. They just do it. And they connect people I said to you a while ago that I found it awfully strange at George Nader is cooperating with the Muller probe. Joe? He's one of their key witnesses. He's their guy. He's their deep throat in the case. And his lawyer is the fixer captured Ramler how that dad. How 'bout that? How 'bout that? No one finds that even a little bit coincidental. That Obama's key. Legal fixer is the lawyer for Bob Muller's main cooperator, and now what's going to be his main charge, which is going to be Middle Eastern collusion. And the collusion. I'm using air quotes again. Although I hate them too collusion. He's going to allege Muller. So glad we were on this early because you are all prepared. It's going to be that Nater set up meetings with people who work at way for Joe wait for it had social media companies that they could use to maybe help influence vote. Oh, really? Yes. Yeah. That's it. No, that's a charge. Now. Keep in mind. Let me just explain to you. What's going on here? There's a guy named Joel Zamel, and you can Google his name and read multiple press reports about them and the allegation is that he had a company that keep in mind. There's no there's no indication or allegation that what the company he owned did is legal. We clear on this show. The social media influence a company. There's no allegations there at all that that's the league. Okay. The only allegation is that there was maybe some foreign money involved in this company that had pitched some kind of an election proposal to the Trump team to use social media to basically get out the Trump vote. So you may say, I don't get it. What's the crop? Well, nobody else gets it either. That's why George Nader's in the picture, right? Because they got the Obama fixer here because they're trying to fabricate crimes by selectively. It seems leaking this stuff to the public. You know to the public domain to get the media to pick up. All my gosh. Middle Eastern money helped influence the election. No, that's not what happened the proposed plan from this guy. Joe, according to multiple sources Zamel didn't happen. They never accepted the offer. Keep in mind. There's no allegations that this business arrangement would have been a legal anyway..

"Duke charitable foundation whose clinical scientists development awards support promising early career physician scientists and their research efforts to improve human health and from the listeners who support this NPR station. This is one A. I'm Joshua Johnson. It's the Friday news roundup with current emerging reporter at the Washington Post covering defense and foreign policy. Ravi Agra wall, managing editor at foreign policy magazine and Michael Goldfarb creator and host of the podcast the first rough draft of history later on. We'll check in with a reporter in Brazil, who's covering this weekend's presidential election there. Let me get to a few more of your comments on this your mouth kashogi fall out. And then we will move onto a few more stories. Darren emailed the US Saudi relationship. Make no mistake is a relationship of shared interests, not a relationship on shared values whatsoever. Brian emailed. Of course, it's deplorable that the Saudis murdered this journalist. Is it not also deplorable that we are profiting from the sale of weapons being used by the Saudis to kill Yemenis. Those are two things that we have discussed earlier in this week. We spent a whole hour on Yemen in this kind of proxy war taking place. There we discussed that this week. And you'll find that conversation and every segments of every broadcast online at the one A dot org. That's the word the the number one the letter A dot org. The United Nations estimates the group of migrants heading on foot towards the US through Mexico currently has about seven thousand people travelling north that number fluctuates course, this group of migrants has become the target of President Trump and other Republicans during the upcoming midterms car. What do we know about the folks who are in this caravan who are they where did they come from? And what made them start heading for the US border. Well, for the most part they seem to be migrants that started off in Central America that have been moving up through Mexico that are heading to the US border. And this is something that's been organized to kind of make the point of the plight of the migrants that I have been trying to travel a very very long way to get to the US border, and are seeking to come to the United States for either reasons of economic attraction, or because they are fleeing some sort of threat, and this is sort of thing that happens every day unless organized fashion it's become though a weapon for the temp. For for Trump to us in advance of the midterm elections to say look at all these scary people coming towards our border. There might be middle easterners in there. You know, how do we know that there aren't bad people in that group, which is just to quote, his terminology us, and this is kind of poking at the the that the existing tension that exists in this country between people who are sympathetic toward the people who want to come to the United States for various reasons of personal safety and economic instability and everything else, and those people who think scary, outsiders, don't let them in this place real well with Trump's base Trump is trying to whip up his base in advance of the midterm elections because they're publicans need to hold on for dear life to make sure they keep the majorities in both houses of congress because house, especially seems like it's quite likely to flip to Democrats, and that will be problematic for Trump in the last two years of his first term. So it is classic. It's a very emotional issue for people on both sides of this issue. And this is a classic politicking for how it's being portrayed right now. In on television on the Airways as we are what two weeks out loud. Away from the point at which everybody's going to cast their ballots feeling how they feel about you know, the issues that affect the country and how the president's grappling with them. Oh, hey before we continue talking about the caravan. I'm sorry. I forgot to clarify something earlier, and what we were discussing Michael Goldfarb raised the point about Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, and we clarify that he did not attend the conference this so-called Davos in the desert that is true. But just to be clear. The Treasury Secretary did meet with Saudi Crown prince Mohammad bin Salman on Monday in Riyadh. He did not attend the conference. But he and the crown prince did meet one on one earlier this week on Monday just by way of clarification Ravi, president troops sent President Trump sent troops to the US Mexico border during the spring Defense Secretary James Mattis has authorized deploying eight hundred more troops to the southern border. Give us a sense of what role these troops might be expected to play there and how that might factor into this whole saga regarding the the caravan. Well, it really is. As Karoon was pointing out apply of thoughts did play into the political debate here in the United States about these migrants making their way to the to the United States, and the whole notion of securing the borders also is a strange one on this. Because I mean, if you look at who these migrants are and what they're escaping from. They are tired. They are hungry. They're escaping a countries like Honduras, and El Salvador, and Guatemala where scaping violence they are extremely poor. They they as they are walking up north towards the United States their agenda and their hopes and dreams quite clearly is to try and seek asylum in the United States why because they think that they could have better lives in the United States. They think that their children would have better lives. And really there is no greater testament to American soft power that you have you know, essentially all around the world people who want to vote with their feet. Come to the United States and settle and have children and have better lives extensively. And so the troops are part of this larger Trumpian, and I guess Republican rhetoric to play into the the idea that the migrants who are coming are coming. As sources of great danger. When in fact, if you look at the pictures of who they are and how they're coming in. They are anything. But and I also do want to point out. Caroline mentioned that President Trump alluded to the fat or mentioned that these migrants are Middle Eastern well for one there's actually no evidence that points to the fact that they could be Middle Eastern. But perhaps more importantly, he was using Middle Eastern as a slur of sorts which. We should we should just clarify vice President Mike Pence it said that there it's possible that mixed in with these thousands of migrants from Central America. There may be a few dozen who were Middle Eastern and might have, you know, nefarious aims for the country. That's exactly right. Thank you for the clarification there. But the point I was getting too was that the use of the of of of Middle Eastern as a slur is extremely dangerous because it it it it then tries to create the impression that being the least and means you're dangerous. So that you're a terrorist. And that too is is a dangerous loaded way of looking at as Karoon was pointing out again a movement that happens very often. Migrants. From from those parts of the world often try to make their way to the United States. And the reason why this has become a bigger thing right now numbering in the thousands is because it has been politicized here in the United States. Michael goldfarb? I wonder if we should be careful with the language we use to describe this large group of people a number of you have commented to us about that with these deter -nology including the use of the word migrant Maria rights. I am Honduran. I was born and raised in Honduras. I came to the US to study. And now, I live and work here. This quote, unquote, caravan is a cry for help, but cry of desperation from my people who will risk their lives to escape the extreme poverty and violence that I know is real the are indeed refugees seeking refuge. Please don't blame them blame the corruption that has rotted the Honduran government and Doug Anthony tweet. They are not migrants. They are asylum seekers words matter. Now, Michael merriam Webster is my go-to in terms of the use the English language merriam Webster, defines a migrant as one who migrate such as a person who moves regularly in order to find work, especially in harvesting crops. A refugee is one that fleas, especially a person who flees to a foreign country or power to escape danger or persecution. What do you make of the words that we're using to describe this? You know, John as you've been talking about this. I suddenly had Woody Guthrie's old song about about a group of migrants being sent back to Mexico in the nineteen thirties and their plane crashed and they were called deportees. It's a beautiful song. You look it up and listeners should straight to YouTube after the show and give it a listen. There are many versions of it. Yeah. You know? Look, I do think that in this case there is a distinction. We have a human wave coming out of sub Saharan Africa and the horn of Africa towards Europe, and it's had a stabilising effect on politics here as well. And I would identify most of these folks as as being migrants as opposed to people who come from countries which very much as a result of American policy not just in the nineteen eighties. But, you know, going back, you know, well into the twentieth century where the small Central American countries were often just fiefdoms for United fruit company and other American concerns, and and the the political leadership was essentially put in place to favor these American businesses that you know, these folks really probably are refugees, particularly from Honduras where there's tremendous violence, and poverty, and what's required. A wise a wiser government in Washington. And for that matter in Mexico City would have. Tried to find some kind of regional solution to making it safer improving the economic prospects in Honduras, El Salvador, wherever and I make the same argument over here. I mean, one of the things that we have here in Europe is we we see it as a European problem. We're being invaded or something like that. But you know, the Mediterranean, isn't that wide? It's not as wide as the Atlantic Ocean. And what's really required is a regional solution that reaches from the southern tier of Europe across to North Africa. And then deep across the Sahara to try and root out the organized, and by this point, it is all organized over here by gangs, and they recruit people say, what will you give us a thousand two thousand three thousand dollars in some village in northeastern Nigeria and we'll get you to Europe. And then they end up, you know, one hundred and fifty people in a boat trying to get across from Serta or. Tripoli to Italy and many die, and it's a criminal activity, and you have to use different words. I think for what's happening here in Europe. And what's happened with this March Sasha, I'm sorry. Hold on just one second. I just want to stick with Michael for one second. And then I'll get to you in just a moment car. I since you brought up the Mediterranean that gets to something that I wanted to ask you about. And and let me bring this up before. I forget it frankly because in Europe this anti immigrant mood resurfaced again from the leader of the Czech Republic. Who spoke to the guardian this week, our Android Babich suggested the thousands of police officers should be on standby in the Mediterranean ready to guard Europe's borders, he said there are seven hundred thousand illegal migrants, they need to go home. Now last year there were six hundred thousand non EU citizens were found to illegally be present. In the European Union. That's down from a peak of more than two million in twenty fifteen but still quite a lot of people Matt emailed where does it say that anyone can enter any? Country without the permission of the government of said country. We choose the circumstances of entry Michael I can only imagine that it makes the rhetoric very different in Europe than in the US because as you mentioned for all the talk of a border wall here in Europe. It just seems physically so much more impossible to stop people from crossing borders. Well, wasn't level we could because we have the Schengen agreement in which twenty-seven not Britain. But the rest of the EU have open borders. Once you get in get in in Italy or in Spain or in Greece has happened to twenty fifteen and that's an anomaly that was the year that the Turkish government, let every little the refugees from the war in Syria just kind of flock into Europe they were trying to score political points..

"For looking after many of Tripoli's historical buildings. Can you tell me why it's important to restore buildings like this that incorporate techniques like A-block actually to be more specific. This building is one of four existing in Tripoli, was particular entrance particular A-block particular cardinals not to mention the particular architecture limited existing inside the I block in here is one of the characteristic of Mamluk architecture intra-party. I assume there is unique style mixing the crusade remains and the Mamluk architecture in a unique combination, which is my book eventually, but it has its own characteristic. For example, they are block is used, but it's different from the in Damascus. It's less sophisticated due to the the situation in AAA AAA was, let's say, from it's a front, it was always clashes between west and east so cheap, put. It was not a place, let's say much or. Tation at Matt's sophisticated as interior city. It is visited? Yes, it has some rumination. Yes, but this is it's much smaller and how would they built the A-block here? How would they have sourced stone, how they have got about building the entrance that we see with this beautiful black and white stone around it as all civilization did. They seek for the nearest source. The basaltic rock exist here or near to Tripoli in maybe not car or maybe in HAMAs. That's why this method using them as I'll take rox flourished in this area because it was nearer in other places. They used some other type of souls beside A-block. So A-block is available here and limestone is available here just to have to get some marble from some places. So they have a way to do some argumentation with the best was possible cost inside the elevator. Mosque. There is a rare example of red sandstone and limestone block. It resembles the patterns visible on the great mosque. Fedral of Cordoba in Spain that shows how the technique spread right across the Mediterranean. Yes. Do talk. Yeah. So our final. So you should as architecture where not covered with lime, it will remain expose so everyone can see it. Frankly, we honest, we do not have the answer why they'd be. They use such. Type of stone in this particular distribution. Maybe it was restored like three or four hundred years ago, and it was made like this natural. The Al theorist ration- should be finished within the next seven to eight months. Site manager in Seville sees the project as a key part of preserving heritage and features like a block, we'll have to restore it. It's what ripple is all about to have a lot of monuments that are endangered and that are left out without any maintenance and this monument where reviving an old monument that is by our analysis is going to be of high importance and it will urge people to come and see it. The existence of block across the Middle East and North Africa is a reminder that the regions architecture pre exists modern state boundaries. Most of these join up after the collapse of the Ottoman empire. In the twentieth century, you may not. Even the argumentation are very close. Some place in here, let's say a monument, some ornament in here in jeopardy, and some ornament in Baalbek, and some ornament maybe in Damascus or Aleppo. You may. You may not that it's very close, very similar to each other. Besides construction in the Middle East still crosses those modern borders Abdullah Coghill director of the institute of Islam IQ art and architecture at eleven as American University explains more A-block is that in practice these days, neither and Syria or nesia nor eleven, but the international border that you mentioned? Honestly, they are just on the map. The majority of the construction workers in liberal now are Cillian not because they are this story and they come from Syria to how might be used in the future is not yet clear, but abalata he'll says, similar geometric patterns, more widely are experiencing a revival. Now. Now there is a wave internationally, the return of the ornament and in contemporary touches outdoor. So the first forms of the elements that made your eye from Islam architecture that are used internationally? Not only in Lebanon. Patterns. There are several buildings. For example, if I were built in the last few years in Spain for contemporary function, such as an art center or museum or architects are looking at Joe Matic patterns of Slavic architecture, Spain for Monaco in Tripoli.

The first recorded example of our block was during the twelfth century at the great mosque in Damascus. Us the capital of modern day Syria, but the later Mamluk Sultan it ruling from Cairo popularized the technique across North Africa and the Middle East. I went to the Mediterranean city of Tripoli to take a look at a rare example of block. The city is modern Lebanon, second largest. It is also one of the most complete examples anywhere of Mamluk architecture. Tripolis Alatorre mosque has A-block that is being preserved as part of an ongoing restoration project. Its name means the perfumes mosque after the man who commissioned its main entrance. Some seven hundred years ago. I spoke to them h an architect, the fund responsible.

So it sent a sultanate in the late middle ages, oh, and also laying kind of uses king and sold interchangeably. And listening back. It's a mistake that slip through my writing too. So basically anytime I say king, I mean Salton. Before the window, the king finally recognized that he had a problem. His gardens were not in blue or existence will know that the area surrounding his kingdom was a wasteland, and he can now see that it boiled down to a staffing issue all of his guys.

The king came to a tipping point and decided to actually look for Gardner with Mick spirits.

Oh, you're supposed to put the seeds in crowned and. Yep, water. They've been using wine. Oh, he, this made a lot of sense within a year's time, the king's gardens were in full bloom in the hit of his fancy parties. However, that everything was coming up like a daffodil and spring for the king. His daughter was now in love with the Gardner son and like good for her because she knew it and she stuck by the young man. Even the king constantly put him down and forbade her to see him. Usually the king would have just had the guy like killed or exiled or something, but his garden looked so good and the Gardner will probably ole Toshiba's some being executed.

For the sake of keeping the simple we're gonna call the Gardner G, gee, and the minister son. Em since M was the first one, ensuring the corner. He was the first to see the elderly woman steam in the middle of the road, begging with a frail voice. She said that she needed help. She was stranded here and she hadn't eaten in three days. Everyone who looked on her did so with disdain, kind of like was looking at her right now and, oh cool. He wasn't even slowing down. She dove out of the way at the very last second as yelled at her to leave him alone, which and continued speeding down the road. A few moments later G round the corner and screech to a halt. He knew he had to keep moving, but this beggar woman looked rough. He dismounted approached asking how he could help.

There's that night at dinner. The old woman confirmed that she was in fact a witch. We're not all evil. She explained between gulps of beer. Personally, I don't eat children at all. I mean, okay, if a matter which party and someone's passing around orders and I'm like, I'm not going to be rude, but I can't stand the taste. I can do other stuff though. Like that guy.
