How Offering Customers Entry Level Products Can Help Your Business

"Entry level products have been around for a very very long time. I'd invent this and it's not a new trend but it's tried and true it works. It works enlarge businesses. Small businesses works for consumer products and beat ib products. Then you've probably have been a customer of this model of buying an entry level product and then moving to the flagship product. If you've ever been to any of disney's theme parks you may not know it. But you've probably been through this. A typical theme park customer will buy a theme park ticket. When they go to disneyworld or disneyland or your disneyland wherever you are this is kind of the basic. This is like we're you star then. Great time in their family can't stop talking about that time they went to disney. They're gonna want to go back but this time they wanna have a bigger better experience. This is why disney offers so many tears to the products so often the knicks time around the family will say hey. Let's stay at disney. Let's go to one of the disney hotel stay one of the resorts and get a package. Deal this disney is their flagship product. Where people actually hand over disney their wallets and say take care of me. Give me the vacation of my dreams. They know that a lot of people won't start. They way. they know that they start with. Hey i want to get thrifty images by the tickets. Go to say the days in. And i will you my way with my car to each the parks or the park every day and i know. Have all the perks of going to the park early. And all that kind of stuff but Hey i want to go to disney. And i'm going to give it a try. That's the first time around the second time around. They're going to go for the full experience and this is where they make their money. Why because when they live on the property when they're staying at one of the resorts one of the reasons why people do this because it's quote unquote convenient. They get free bus transport to the resorts they get to go to special themed dinners. They get to go to the park early and leave late. The muslim author staying at disney. Let me is all the little purchases that they're making and disney the customers buying it from a disney property whether the bottle of water up banana or souvenirs. This is why disney wants you to get the tat level and they know an entry level product like just. Admission is going to work. but isn't that just. is you. Walk down the road in your neighborhood and you go to your local masseuse or massage store. I guess it's called massage parlor is like old fashioned or something but the point is is that they have entry level products. Thirty minute foot roof. Xolicy it's the cheapest product on the menu but it gets you in the door it gets you to feel relaxed and feel the ambiance of the place Even give you a nice cup of tea. And you'll wanna relive that experience but the next time around you'll be like you know what. Let me go for that. Full body

The Battle Raging Over Antisemitism and Israel in the Kids’ Literature World

"A few weeks ago. I did a chabad table. Talk segment about a statement condemning anti-semitism released by the society of children's book writers and illustrators. And the apology that followed but there's much more to the story in fact. A battle has been brewing over anti-semitism israel in the children's literature world for quite a while. Gabby deutsche the reporter for jewish insider who wrote about the wider issue is with us now to discuss. Gabby welcome to people of the pod. Thank you excited to be here. So let's first talk about that apology. Did all of this come to light. Share so in the world of As these writers all kids literature is shorthanded. Everybody uses there has been a movement toward diversity calling out racism and all forms of aid and several months years as there has been of course in american society has evolved and about a month ago the beginning of june this organization the society of children's but writers illustrators put out a statement unequivocally condemning antisemitism was a very strong statement it was not political at all. It's not mention. Israel did not mention the politics of the u. s. or elsewhere in the world and jewish writers in fields. Were excited to see it and it was actually. I found my reporting the results of a lot of work by jewish writers. There was an open letter sent around urging this organization to put out a statement. It's an organization that you have to be a part of what you are starting your career. As a writer of children's books and young adult novels it helps people find agents. It helps them promote books. It helps them get bite to give talks. And we'll a lot of influence so when they put out a statement condemning. Assumpta cemetery to wait what happened after that was a lot of controversy on a statement that on the face of it looked very positive which writers in the jewish community ultimately agreed that it was so about two weeks after that statement semitism issued the same organization. Put out another statement. That looked in part to be walked that back. It seems sort of like an apology for their statement on anti-semitism. It's we apologize. The people we've heard you know specifically palistinian american writers muslim writers and many people. The jewish community got the sense that they were saying we can't condemn anti-semitism unless we also condemned islamophobia and other forms of pay and of course the jewish writers also scab against other forms of paid as well. But they were surprised to see the statement following what had been said about anti semitism which did not mention israel. It did not even mention the recent conflict between israel from us it was purely referring to the rise memphis is in the united

"Hi everyone be back in the studio. It's crazy to be back here. Slowly returning back to recording are episodes. In which is create because now i can share the same physical space with my guests and colleagues and today. I'm here with sarah. She is one of our writers alot. Everyone so sad. I'll why don't you introduce yourself to our listeners. Yeah hi guys. I'm sarah and i am the content and media editor for immigrants. I've been here for quite some time now. Almost two years right. Yeah it's crazy time flies. So what is today's episode about sara. Yes so we partnered with indiana university's muslim voices project and we decided to get together and make an episode about the relationship between islam and mental health. And we did that. Because in my opinion spirituality is really just about knowing how to stay in a good state of mind throughout the entirety of just you know existing as a human so i feel like it makes complete sense for us to explore how religion can be a part of that. Because i feel like on this show. We've done a lot of talking about religion as an institution and from a historical place. But i feel like it's time to really delve into how it affects. People and also the concept of spirituality. Right it applies to everyone. Everyone who follow organized religion braces people. Who don't follow religion at all. At least if not spirituality than mindfulness right. Yeah definitely. Sarah tell us a little bit about our guests. Yes so our guests are heather. Coup who is a professor at indiana university and hanan moawad who is a friend of muslim voices and they are both practicing muslims Heather is from wisconsin and she actually converted after meeting her now ex husband and after starting a family with him. Her relationship to islam really strengthened. And she really became a fully practicing muslim when she had her miscarriage at a relatively early age and that really set her into a place where she needed that sort of guidance.

The newest foreign party to take an interest was the united states and they mainly wanted one thing oil. They pressured the iranian government into allowing oil tycoons to start drilling into the land when robert embryo was killed at the hands of an angry mob. All the foreign actors in the country started pointing fingers at each other. Tehran newspapers and russian authorities blamed the british for inciting muslims into a frenzy. Others blamed the russians who had expelled embry from moscow after he defended his anticommunist beliefs fellow american spy marguerite harrison who recently departed the near east while posing as a filmmaker claimed international intrigue was to blame but above all according to margarite. Embree was to blame for his own death. He had knowingly entered a dangerous situation marguerite also claimed embry made a serious error by fleeing the initial attack at the shrine. According to iranian custom running away proved he was guilty of sabotaging the site. If he had stayed the people would have merely punished him but not killed him.

Look what we've been able to accomplish with our community. Growing up in a space where i never saw myself represented or when i did see myself represented particularly as a muslim immigrant arab woman. It was often as a victim on screen.

It seems a little more conservative. Women are more covered up into town like this described the atmosphere in cornea compared to a place like izmir or ankara. Well as you just put into words. It's little bit more conservative. But what's attract people's attention is not the conservatives off the town being a conservative is not a bad thing. It's just the personal understanding of how you want to practice your life and your religion. The reason i'm saying is that muslim women prefer if they are developed. They prefer to cover up but in different religions. People don't or may or may not need to show their face with what they wear because there's a visual aspect to it. It attracts attention. Otherwise cornea is not any different than any more conservative city anywhere in the world. Okay so different Groups in different religions will have their women wearing hats and their men wearing beers visual indicator. Then you to said if there was not you would not notice. A life is not different in konya than anywhere else in turkey. It's just men have more beards and women have more scarfs. That's okay we're going to go to the market now when you step into a market like anywhere.

"Some of the attacks took place last year and the government is looking for people who are religious nationalists identifying them as the problem you suddenly saw police checkpoints on the highway where han chinese were able go straight through but if you are weaker you'd have to go into a separate lane get out of the car. They would check the car for bombs. You'd be sniffed by dogs and then you'd have to go through metal detectors.

"For me before chinese public. David misunderstood. it's because of nick lawrence. They don't know they are in the santa. But after september eleventh changed their mindset by wieger terraced after september eleventh. Though we were not only other. They found themselves on the receiving end of china's war on terror. The changes were almost immediate. You do see after that kind of a license given to the state to be more. Overtly kind of us. This idea of counter-terrorism as justifying their policies in the region the started a campaign xinjiang against what they called the three evils terrorism extremism and separatism terrorism extremism and separatism that last one separatism it also included a subtle but important twist ideological separatism ideological separatism that allowed the government to cast any acts of cultural expression like books music and even mesh reps as separatism. This meant there would be ideological surveillance for example that drastic books about twitter history and the waiter culture and there is safe to songs and expression about promote with coach and weaker language. The golden age of agriculture in the modern era was over at the same time. There's all this development going on the region and there's an influx of han migrants to the region. Some of the development is a racing some of the traditional sites of wheat or culture. The old city and kashgar which is seen as kind of a central monument and we were culture is essentially raised and rebuilt and kind of a disney fide version for tourists. There's a lot of tension going on in the region over development. That's right and part of the reality. For many weavers was watching. The economy of xinjiang grow at a at the fastest pace. The that it's grown in its history. But we weren't part of that. I remember an early trip. I took to xinjiang in two thousand six. And i remember hearing a lot of complaints about han people about how they the we did not feel like they were really part of china because they weren't given the same opportunities they didn't feel like they were really part of the power structure either and that was pretty prescient because three years later you know. We saw some of the worst violence in that region in. Its history what happened life. If there's these ethnic riots break out in the capital of this region in a room she and in the summer of two thousand nine and it was sparked by an incident. In the southern province of guangdong in the company wieger workers and the workers dancer clash happen leaguer died and they're killed by a mob of han workers who are influenced by unst substantiated rumor on the internet that we had raped a han woman in the factor in the post that we are willing to demonstrate. They hold a protest in a room. She asking for justice. Be given to the wiegorst who had been killed what happens. Next is the security forces come in and suppress those protests and gradually it spirals out of control into ethnic violence on both sides. So you have league or on. Han violence in hanane wiegert violence that continues for about three days in july of two thousand nine. It was almost like a straw that broke the camel's back because there was a lot of tension building up until that time dozens and dozens of people were killed. And that started a much more brutal. Crackdown don't know what's happened to all the men the police came they tell us and took them away during the night part of the over thousand liters arrested by chinese authorities.

"Nine eleven. The day we here in the united states know all too well. But what's easy to forget. Is that the event. Didn't just impact the us or afghanistan or the middle east in china. Nine eleven triggered a major shift in the view of the weaker people almost immediately after september eleventh. The chinese government produced a lot of documents suggesting that it faced a serious terrorist threat from we gore's and they had some evidence that leaguers were joining al-qaeda in afghanistan. There there were. There were weaker inmates at guantanamo. These documents were somewhat fanciful unbelievable. They tried to link about forty gaspar groups from europe. Us in turkey to a network of terrorists funded by al qaeda and osama bin laden. I don't think that they can prove that. A an incredible amount of people were were you know streaming across the border to fight it. Wasn't that many people. It was a handful of people but a lot has been made of that it for about a year the us and other countries mostly ignored these claims in fact the us even pushes back on them saying you know the week were shoes not a counterterrorism issue. It's a it's an issue about minority rights and human rights but suddenly in the summer of two thousand to the us one group from this litany of die ask for organizations in the chinese government documents as being a terrorist organization linked with osama bin laden. And okada what happened in in two thousand one nine eleven that provided an opportunity in many ways for china to justify more control over that region china's war on terror and the slow slide to a national crime.

"Muslims. The Al Aksa Mosque is sacred, but it sits alongside the temple Mount Ah holy site for Jews, Muslims and Christians. It's central to the age old dispute over who controls the Holy city itself. But Ariel Sharon claimed that his visit wasn't intended to provoke. I came here with a message of peace. I come here so the holiest place off the Jewish people to have the feeling how we need to move forward, not provocation here the provocation but only on the other side. From early that morning, the police had flooded the area in anticipation of trouble. They'd effectively closed off the Alexa mosque, shutting inside those who'd come to morning prayers. HarleyD Cigar E is a Palestinian cameraman who was working for Reuters news agency. So I went early morning, two hours before shot on arrived to the mosque and I stayed inside the building of the mosque. While the attends off security members of Sharon's off the Israeli security where a really scanning and the Making clearance that everything okay, and it's very safe for him to get in on the sarees off policemen. As the ring. They were around the building that I was inside to prevent any breakers or any Palestinians to leave the building as hell even negotiated his way out of the most. Sharon and a group of some 20 supporters began making their way along the narrow, winding streets of the old city, past the wailing or Western Wall on up towards the Al Aksa mosque. When we actually reached the area off the off the Western Wall and the world's also off the temperament, which is the same thing. They were already quite a few prayers at the wall. And they all applaud the doubts and cheered us and and things like that. Obviously, there was some excitement, but not too much. Zalman Shoval is the former Israeli ambassador to Washington, He decided to join Sharon on his controversial visit. After attending a Likud party meeting earlier that same week. He didn't make a speech at the beginning and saying that he was going to do that. But the rumor flew around in the meeting itself. Then he got up and said Yes, we're going to do it. And whoever wants to join them. He'd be very happy if you know if there will be many of us coming with him, But he didn't say you have to go with us or anything like that was completely voluntary. Of course, did it not occur to you to you? Did it not occur to Mr Sharon? That It could be a provocative move. It could be. But you know, there's another side to that of for some Arabs, at least for some Muslims, at least the very possibility off the Jewish presence. There is provocation. So maybe there was some reasonable some logic in saying, Look We don't interfere in your religious practices, but don't interfere in our religious practices we pay full. I would say respect to what you are doing even to the point where the Israeli government has forbidden Organized Jewish prayer on the temple Mount, but don't interfere if we want to go and visit The visit was a political act. Peace talks between the two sides had collapsed. Despite the direct intervention of U. S. President Bill Clinton and relations were extremely tense between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Was John MC. From blessed of less You can see the shaky Sequences, and you can hear the voice of everything on it was from time to time being pushed by his bodyguards and by the security. They're trying to get us away from him, but because they were afraid something's gonna happen to him. A few people managed to get close to him, and they were chanting and singing slogans against. It was really difficult to fill him to film his face. Because, really, he was really behind that tough security and the famous frame or the famous picture of your own. It was his close up picture off his face with a bodyguard covering his face. Sharon in his party were careful not to enter the Al Aksa mosque itself that had been agreed with the Israeli government beforehand. And, according to Zalman Shoval, it wasn't until the Palestinians began protesting that things turn sour. At first, I must say it went rather peacefully. Of course they were. Arabs up then, but you know, we kept ourselves they kept to themselves. They even was a sort of humorous tick interlude. As far as I was concerned, fairly aged Arab, completely white, dressed dressed in white came up to me and said. You know, I also lived in Washington and I met you there. So what we started reminiscing about about their experiences in Washington. All that changed radically. When In Israeli Eric, member of Knesset. There may have been others, but I remember him and he started whipping up the Protests, the enthusiasm and making all sorts off inflammatory statements and that is when things got out of hand. I began to get out, defend Soon as shut on lifted the compound. You know, there's hundreds of ways is still in the compound, you know, on by that time, the people start throwing stones toward the Israeli police. And there's available is they open fire, but not in a big amount. Just a few, you know, maybe a sound a grenade. One gas, maybe another bullets that the protests petered out. The next day, Her lead was back in the old city of Jerusalem. Palestinians, still angry at Sharon's visit were pouring out of the mosques from Friday prayers and was very severe clashes. I never saw the I never saw such a thing before everybody, youths, old people, kids, everybody was holding a stone or anything and grab it and started to the Israeli police. Soon. It wasn't just Jerusalem. But across the Palestinian territories of the West Bank and Gaza. Palestinians.

"The bar has been so much lowered based on how much violence that we've normalized. And i think that that's something that we can't allow. We allow ourselves normalized. Violence like biden saying that he's going to reverse the muslim ban. You shouldn't be sprayed it as a hero. That is like the basic thing that he should be doing and so i think that us getting excited. That biden is doing not even the bare minimum but just like reversing back to normal. Violent status quo is not a celebration. I think that unfortunately trump has really really destroyed our sense of normalcy but are also like before that even our sense of normalcy was like really endanger. And i think we don't do enough imagining about what we're actually trying to build toward And i think if we're actually able to sit down and be like all right. We're trying to elect muslims into positions of power for what what is our end goal like. We're going to rally around biden to get into power for what are we expecting him to end. Us support for israel on the contrary he was the architect of obama's made like biggest donations. Israeli military eight history. Are we trying to elect chemla harris into power in order to end the incarceration of black muslims muslims. Absolutely not she's the architect of so much incarceration unlike refused to legalize marijuana. And so i think when we when we are thinking about like the deep actual structural issues that muslims are facing. We can't be naive to assume that amac is not going to be an empire because we've chosen a lesser of two. I've just wanna put it. When we when i say normal. I don't mean normal like oh we're going to accept his policies like a normal person. We can push back against a normal person stacked against them. And i think i would rather push back against somebody like donald trump in office the then someone like trump Sorry like biden office. And someone trump and i'll tell you why is the domestic policies now whether we want to admit it or were impacted by those. So i had an immigration lawyer. And i've the conversations of had to have the past four years yes biden and obama were bed under immigration right. But they're not this bad. So i would rather be pushing back at the not this bad than the very bad i want to ask you. You said the ideal normal president schedule. So what would you say is the ideal normal president. I don't wanna president. I think that might be scared for people. But i think at the end of the day we have to recognize that we are on stolen and i think for a community that is so hell bent on making sure that israel does not continue to illegally occupy palestine. We have to understand that we also are in like a futuristic version of what israel could look like in the united states. We are on so at the end of the day. And i think we have to recognize. I think you have to grapple with that. But we don't. I also have to deal with the fact that like muslim countries around the world and muslim people and people of color on the world will always always be suffering through american imperialism and be subject to it because we are benefiting from cheap labor were benefiting from exploitation such shops around the world and that will always happen regardless of who is in like muslim position. I think the muslim community is especially the non black wilson community. I should specify. I think is kind of toy that line between just playing the game and trying to assimilate within a system of white supremacy or actually working toward building structures of power outside of that on things that black muslims have been doing before all of us have been born And so. I think what's really important is. I think it's it's challenging to see sort of like Like a representation politics or like this idea of like We need to can be american. That's not that's not the goal right of we can be whatever we want right but i think our focus should not be in like being american but our focus should be on. What can we do in order to bring justice liberation for our people not just in the united states by globally. If the prophet that who bates were alive today. Living in the united states. what would they be doing they. They'll probably be in jail because they would refuse to pay taxes. But i don't think many of us would recognize that our beloved religious leaders would be incarcerated in this country or like beloved religious role models. What would like wet sort of fight with aging. And i think that it would not be like let's get biden elected and i'm not saying that like anybody doing that as un-islamic of course i'm not at all trying to make that argument i think that if we're actually able to think about as muslims what is justice and what does the gration looked like on a holistic view. I think that for me at least has helpful. Been helpful in like reframing where i find my role con muslims really work with joe biden's administration or we just kidding ourselves in terms of muscle preposition. We don't know what that's going to look like and it almost seems that it's going to probably be those are going to fall in line and Fall in line with like his center politics. But that's not actually what's going to Represent the muslim community at large the fact that there is a growing coalition of grassroots american muslim organizations He needs to reach out to those Cut the administration Needs to reach out to the The grassroots muslim organizations it has to be a coalition it has cannot be one specific organization. That's going to vet who who's going to Represent muslim voices across the country And and in a biden administration.

"Audit hoda. Novus anomoly continue all <hes>. Thank you joining us here. On this table where we are discussing. How post election forts. And what's next for muslims in america. I'm sure you can all agree. It's been crazy times and in many ways we're kind of up the woodsmen anyways we're entering new self woods with new challenges to face. I wanted to start off just by asking. What role did muslim voters play in this election. The way we've done things in the past. There has been slow grassroots initiatives. Here and there are different organizations. But this time. There was a lot of <unk> <hes>. And i think you know over among. Muslims voted in the election. That's phenomenal like that's beyond anyone's expectations. Of was there before the election started or the early voting started <hes>. States like michigan. I think some delivered. They delivered michigan to the biden. Victory and i think minnesota what we snare issues exceptional sixty plus muslims. That got elected this election. And that says something. When you see that in the <unk>. Legislator reflects what our community looks like need looked at this election <hes>. Strategically see where we needed to <hes>. Where we needed to help out in order to get border turn out and what community could actually build those coalitions. I feel like there is the sentiment and i saw this on social media in leading up to the election. There was this kind of sentiment that muslim organizations who <hes> <hes>. Kind of you know. <hes> representing <hes>. The muslim grassroots on the ground for the biden campaign <hes>. Was being kind of you know there was kind of i. Don't use the word fighting but into dialogue lesage's to be kind <hes>. About <hes> various organizations. And whether or not they have essentially the right to represent <hes>. <hes> listen votes. You think that that kind of infighting is kind of unfair leading up to election where it's so important that muslims gathered together as a coalition and trump office. The muslim communities diverse in there has to be important questions that are asked in our organization. Do need to help be held accountable. <hes> so i i see nothing wrong in conversations about directions. Muslim organizations are going. You know as long as they're done in a manner that's productive in in a manner that's intended to move the community forward <hes>. And i think you know how organizations respond to that is also telling of the direction they want to. And i think organizations and i've been with an organization before at at abc has been under the gun. That's been under community pressure to make changes. I've gone through it on the other side. And i understand that. They namic of running an organization. Dan dynamics of being annetta. That's a separate conversation of how organizations have to react and have to respond to community pressure and valid concerns. I think the question money raise was well is is this a time to talk about you. Know community <hes>. Is at the time where we have an elections where we're trying to vote out a fascist and <hes>. You know everybody has a different opinion. There is no right or wrong. Answer in both sides have concerns about the timing and so forth wasn't twenty sixteen on repeat. A lot of people did fall in line disappoint. Joe biden even <unk>. May not have agreed that he was the best choice. Personally i do think he was a better choice. Donald trump a happily voted for him. I didn't have an issue. Voting for him are his policies. Perfect no by any means. They're not he's not the perfect candidate but i'm not looking for the perfect candidate. I'm not looking for somebody that i'm going to go out and stand in line for hours and it's going to get me. You know up to to see him. I'm i'm looking for president and it's normal. You know somebody that we can. When we do fight against our fight policies and push back on somebody that's gonna be receptive to listening to us so the democratic party joe biden's administration. We have to give them room to prove you know to to to prove themselves to the community. We have to give them room to answer to our concerns and our demands. And and see how reacts and i'm not saying biden is going to completely shut the door issues. He may well come out and be the bus president. We've seen for the community. We do have to give them that opportunity to do so. We have to give that room for him to to work in and navigate with us and see what comes about something that you said that like we just want a normal president and i think that that is really scary for me because i think a normal president in the united states is a warmonger will still enact other types of bands will still children are still being separated in the united states via the incarceration systems <hes>. People are still being shot and killed by police. They're still surveillance they're still going to be a us empire and so these like he's very core. Fundamental forms of violence are not going to be raised at all. I think that is something that <hes>. It's central to what i think i'm really pushing for. Is that a yes. We should have diversity of tactics absolutely. We can't just like protests everybody in the street and then like think. Everything's going to change if we don't have a strategy. If we are able to actually think about things strategically. I agree that a diversity of tactics is very important but i also think i think there's celebration i think there's a difference between a celebration of trump leaving office and biden entering office. I think it's like great. I love seeing trump depress. The white house or about the whole thing at the that was great. I love that. But there's truly nothing to celebrate about biden sneaking office and truly nothing to celebrate about going back to the status quo in the status quo is so deeply violent. The bar has been so much lowered based on how much violence that we've normalized. And i think that that's something that we can't allow. We allow ourselves normalized. Violence like biden saying that he's going to reverse the muslim ban. You shouldn't be sprayed it as a hero. That is like the basic thing that he should be doing and so i think that us getting excited. That biden is doing not even the bare minimum but just like reversing back to normal.

"I remember watching TV shows about Noram and his The way he he was always perceived was somebody who's gentle. Who's loving compassionate? Just that's what it is. So but but wh what has happened. Is that the prime minister's Party and supporters. They've actually in some ways weaponized law drums name and now it's become almost like a battle cry. It's like if you see Muslim. Extremists and also allow allow God is great but they use that as a battle cry so I think in that sense. I think they've done a great disservice in my view to law drum because law would never approve of The things that are being done in his name getting back to the citizenship. Act which in many instances as being the source of this violence What is the legal status of opposition to this? Act The opposition to this act You know obviously. The Supreme Court has to review their their petitions in the Supreme Court against this act but the supreme court has been can if not weighing in on this with urgency. That it requires to my mind I hope they do. But you know institutions. Do come under pressure when when you have such a strong executive that is what worries us. that India's institutions are somewhat brittle and I think when you have a strong executive whatever it is that does put some pressure on the these institutions at the same time the Supreme Court has faced such pressures in the past as well and then after some time has bounced back and I expect to bounce back because ultimately they have to look after the constitution and the Constitution has some basic principles and one of them is that all people are equal and every citizen is equal. You cannot create a situation where you have. A community labeled are Disenfranchised or liberal as group in some ways I think this majoritarianism that that is afflicting India. Right now in some ways reminds me of Israel and its treatment of Arab citizens. So Israeli Arabs Israeli Arabs are not seen as equal citizens. I think in some ways many in India or some in India. They would like something similar for Indian Muslims. I think that is what they would like. But I'm happy to say or at least I'm hopeful that many people in India Hindus and other non Muslims who are firmly against these kinds of ideas that there's one politician whose name pops up all the time when we talk about the violence in India. And what is happening right now. He's Kapila Mishra. He's the leader of the BJP. India Today reported that. He's actually been accused of hate speech. Who is he? What role is he playing He is this character who he used to belong to the Mommy Party. Which ruling party in Delhi then he fell out with them and move onto the BJP and He basically went to a particular neighborhood and in front of a senior police officer basically said that look president. Trump is visiting so we will not do anything right now. We ask you to remove these protesters within a couple of days or whatever. If you will do it will dude dude ourselves. Basically clear incitement to violence. He's also been taking a marches talking about shoot the traders basically they wanNA label Muslims traitors or or anybody who's opposed to the Citizenship Amendment. Act other laws in India against this kind of course. But you know there's one thing it's one thing to have laws and it's quite another to enforce the laws especially when the police is under the control of the Home Minister of India because Delhi Police is controlled by the state. Government is controlled by the homeownership India. Because it's a union territory. That is why that is the sense of impunity. That is why you have mobs going out. And they feel that they can do anything they can. Because nobody's going to hold them to account and I'm wondering about the political motivation behind this. There was a study done by researches jail university they examine this kind of communal violence in India from nineteen sixty two to the year two thousand and they found that when there is a this kind of violence the BJP increases. Its sheriff the vote so that of course raises the question Is there much political incentive to bring into this well that is why perhaps senior member of the BJP talk the way they do and it is perhaps why the senior most members of the BJP do not say anything to them. Imagine the Situa- a situation where a member of parliament of the ruling party says that the person who killed Mahatma Gandhi is a patriot and that person remains in the party and the prime minister basically said nothing but is going to be Mahad forever that you said something. I feel bad about it but doesn't expel that person. What message does that send you? Appoint somebody who is violently anti-muslim as the head of India's biggest did you not What message are you sending? You're sending a message that these are the kind of people we want to promote and sure enough. Even the most decent people will see that the incentive is to actually become a vitriolic person a hate monger and that is. I think what is happening as you're told us there'd been protests across India against the citizenship. Act But what is the political opposition to it in parliament? As has the opposition managed to galvanize itself into a strong pressure group against the government on this. Well I The the main opposition party the Congress party to which I belong to buy the we all. I'm here in. My personal capacity has come out against the citizenship amendment. Act has come out against the National Register of citizens because they because we know that this is going to cause huge disruptions in India. India cannot afford the kinds of disruption that these laws are going to create because most of India's undocumented where the hell are people going to get documents Citizenship Rome? I mean it's very difficult. So many state legislatures especially those where the opposition is in power have introduced a resolution against this act or and against the National Register of citizens. So those things are happening. You see you make the argument to the average person Z. Look where Hindu supposed to go supposed to go to India their prosecuted in other places? Where else are they supposed to go? And so people say that seem sensible but then if you explain to people distance you've got to explain to people that it is wrong because what is being done is actually. You're making Muslims. The other we cannot have two hundred million. Muslims as second-class citizens. This is not good for India is not good for the social fabric of India does not good for the reputation of India. I would say that in the last I've lived in the US for twenty five certainly more than twenty twenty two years. I've never seen such negative news about India as we've seen in the last few months necessarily affects India standing on the world stage. Doesn't it absolutely in fact the New York Times article today about how this has damaged India's efforts to become a permanent member of the Security Council? So it doesn't benefit. India? They call him. He's going to take a huge it as it is doing very poorly so I think this is a very destructive and that is why the opposition needs to create a coherent narrative against this right. And what about a role for civil society and the media while the media has largely compromised and fortunately and that is because they face specialist from the Moldy government there are independent sources of information especially online who doing a stellar job. I think trying to be voice of counter ability as civil society consent. I'm happy to report a lot of good people. A lot of people are fighting heroically against the government against these laws. Because they know that this will tear people apart and you know these riots are example of how or people bear the brunt off what some people do for political benefit so ultimately. Muslims died in this right and some Hindus also died in the site. Of course you know reporting suggests that disproportionate damage was done to Muslim properties and businesses. And all that but still ultimately poor people either died or suffered and And I think the civil society in India's still able to raise its voice and I'm happy to say in this Hindus Muslims Sikhs.

"He's all about immigration. Is that Muslims from coming into this country. Simplistic US think about that line. You left the European Union countries like Poland Germany Italy frauds to stop Muslims. That's how much the scam mongering about immigration and refugees in Syria at played a role Nigel farage whose elite who was at the time the leader of the UK Independence Party one of the big pro brexit voices voices in the UK politics. far-right politician stood in front of the infamous Nazi like post which subsequently became known as the breaking point poster which showed just teeming masses masses of Brown people trying to come into the EU. You had Boris Johnson now prime minister fear mongering about Turkey joining the E U. They had ads. Ezra which said Turkey. Population seventy-six million is gonNA join the E U. You don't want seventy six million Muslims coming into the European Union Christian club so yes. Islam phobia played a big role in that. A lot of people on the pro. Brexit side were are Islamophobes people at Boris Johnson. Who is now prime minister who says things like Islam is the problem and mocks Muslim women in veils and competitive two bank robbers now the prime minister of the UK? That's his reward for being anti Muslim bigot. No I don't think brexit would have happened without Islam a phobia playing a massive fearmongering role amongst the populace at large. I want to emphasize on these hidden there. Because I think it's really important understanding politics in this era there've been a bunch of studies. Eddie Shoddy Hamad did one but but but others have done. Many showing that the driver of far-right populace Popular Party's In the US end in Western in Europe is immigration. These parties happen in time to the economy's good and they happen Thompson economy's bad they happened under very different situations with social services and how many social supports the country has happened in places are opioid crisis and in places where there are not opioid crisis but the thing that is always a very primary motivator of them is immigration and and in all of them one of the key ways immigration is weaponized into fear is Muslim immigration and this had a very again a somewhat farcical for sickle version. In the two thousand eighteen election in America were Donald Trump began trying to freak people out about this caravan coming up from From Central America and when it it wasn't working that well he began to say and others random said. Well we don't know there could be jihadists in this Middle Easterners in the Middle Easterners remember. They said we found a prayer rug near the bulletins romanet that was a classic and so I mean this was a public thing like you report us for like the caravan is public. They were coming to turn themselves in legally and asked for asylum and when they really needed to turn up the fear what they said was not that this is full of Central Americans who are fleeing gang violence and economic despair. What they said is as you say there might have been a prayer rug nearby? Maybe they're jihadists in here. MAYBE THEY'RE Middle Easterners in here and then in Europe. This has been much more salient. Because you've had add much more direct Muslim immigration from the Syrian refugee crisis. In and other things I think that when people hear immigration they coated practically in America Even when you're hearing other places a coded the way we think of it here. Immigration is an economic issue immigration as Mexicans coming in but it's often Particularly in Europe the immigration issue is actually a Muslim issue. It's it's about protecting your country from Muslim in invasion and inversion urging right the the this whole idea that these countries are going to become filled with Sharia law. Well there's a very famous French book a couple of years ago imagining a France had become a like basically a like a Muslim superstate. There's a lot of fevered imagining around. This you mentioned the horrifying manifesto of of the shooter. All of that. That stuff relies on this idea of replacement. Birth rates Those are the first words of his thing on. If you go back to Pat Buchanan's book from a couple years ago on unfortunate right now blanking on the name of it but it it it. It had come back recently because it basically it's like a smart version of trumpism it's like a thoughtful version of trumpism but it's very racist and it's all about replacement birth earthrights idea that the Muslim world is going to out birth the Western world and it's going to send people into immigration and that's going to take take over these places and turn them into Muslim states and the problem of course is that this is something again it's easy just to blame on the far right and yes it is true true today the animating force that unites a lot of these far right parties. Whether you're the French National Front or the UK independence body or the Danish People's Party or the Finns Party or the Swedish Democrats will the VOX party in Spain or the relationship to be clear relationship with the Northern League in Italy or the Oban Ban government in Hungary definitely Islamaphobia and targeting Muslim immigrants in particular which brings them together in a way. The antisemitism used to bring them together. What far right parties realized a while ago the smarter ones maybe not golden dawn in Greece but the savvy ones like Marine Le Pen and Franz who got rid of her Dad Anti Semite? They realize antisemitism doesn't work anymore. It's it's still a taboo in most parts of the western well not all of them but still is whereas anti Muslim hatred. Well that's respectable racism. You can get mainstream support for that. The media's already doing it it's already on open market there. When Donald Trump came down the escalator and did what he did and said the Muslim man he was speaking to a audience that was primed for this stuff as how far right European groups so they decided to substitute they've said this Nick Griffin who was a leader of the British National Party and Neo Nazi party and he said this openness said? Let's stop talking about Jews. Let's talk about Muslims much easier to attack Muslims. So they've coalesced around Islamaphobia logically. It works sadly marine. Le Pen managed to become you know. Come second in the the presidential election astonishingly not long ago. Thanks to Islamaphobia. But you can't just say it's all about the far right you then have to take a step back and say when you especially by Syrian refugees and Immigration and one thing I would I very brief out slightly pushback. I don't believe immigration that drives these parties because like for example in Hungary there are no immigrants in Poland their honor it's a perception of uncontrolled immigration. I think is a fair a fair colonel numbers on the people you know there's this myth that Liberals Pushtu though if you see see your community changed you react badly. A lot of people live in communities whether on immigrants Poland being a classic example I interview. MP On my Aljazeera English recently Dominic Touch Pinski's become a hero of the Maga- right and he's MP an Emmy P with the law and Justice Party. He was very open about it on the show. It's one of the most astonishing interviews. I've done my jaw was literally three dropping. It doesn't draw very often because I interview a lot of weird people but he was openly saying. We don't want any Muslims coming to Poland. We don't want any Muslims because they're going to blow themselves up and we don't want Sharia law. This is ZIP. A member of the governing party in Poland in one thousand nine hundred nine saying this stuff openly proudly without any coded language and this has been enabled. I'm sorry to say eh by mainstream politicians both on the center right and the centre left you know we could talk about Marie. Lapenne Nicolas Sarkozy when he was running for reelection. WHO said and I quote halal? Meat is the the number one issue facing France. He said that with a straight face. The halal meat is the number one issue facing the French people because he knew how you support was the next sentence he said I'd let nothing you literally. No but I mean what was actual argument there. Oh He's argument was. The secular fabric of society is being destroyed by Muslims. Who Won't integrate? And it's changing our way of life. Not what the meat issue is. That's why most kids in some schools are being told you have to eat pork or nothing else. And then you had in Britain Tony Blair Gordon Brown Brown who will not card carrying racist but to go back to what we talked about earlier. In the context of George W Bush did create an entire infrastructure surveillance security criticizing immigration which did feed into Islamophobic tropes and did make people more afraid of a foreigner. Angela Merkel who did a great thing by letting in a million Syrians but years earlier. She gave a big speech. Multiculturalism has failed in Germany which was code for too many Turks here. This is across the board Western poly even the US even in the US Azra where Donald Trump twenty-six is running the most Islamophobic campaign in modern American History Bill Clinton well intentioned that well intentioned turns up at the Democratic National Convention Philadelphia. Yeah and he gives a speech and he says in that speech to the crowd if you're a Muslim and you love America and freedom and you hate terror stay here yeah and help us win and make a future together. We want you an astonishing line for any Muslim listening to that number. One the condition. If if you love America if you're Muslim conditional number two. You should only stay here if you WANNA fight terrorism My daughter's a Muslim American. She has no role to play in the war on terror. She's supposed I believe number three. WHO's Bill Clinton decide who stays or goes and this line we want you to? You know just that. He's I'm sure you're the best of intentions but he's uttering automatically we the Non Muslims. You the Muslims our guests right. It's an it's an other thing wrapped in language of inclusion deed. And you saw that. You've seen that you know Barack Barack Obama's refusal to go to a mosque eight years because he was worried about being portrayed a Muslim he waited till his eighth year in office to step foot in a mosque. You still want to note. So that's something we haven't talked about here and you just jogged my memory on it but a constant refrain accounts. Brock Obama the Muslim that was that he was a secret Muslim. I mean I. It was an understatement. He left office and a majority of Republicans believed it for at least in some polls for some time but the fact that that was where this went right I mean people thought well you know when he ran. AMERICA WON'T ACCEPT AN AFRICAN AMERICAN president turns out they did and so then the secondary decision had to be made. Maybe what they won't accept is a Muslim president and maybe we can say that he's Muslim. That is the way to correctly. Remind people whose name which trump did recently you'll notice he brought back the Barack Hussein Obama. Here's my favorite stat which I actually founded volks article a few years ago from FILC Lincoln the political scientist who said that the number one way of identifying a trump voter a white trump voter in 2016 who More than party more than class. More than educational background was whether they believe Barack Obama was Muslim mono and trump was specifically the leader of the birther conspiracy theory. Indeed I mean that was. That was the water heat tests equipped to come back again. I keep bringing this back because I know your listeners. Not Trump supporters by enlarge. And I do think there's a role for all of us to recognize it's easy to bash trump. It's easy to Bash Fox. It's easy to bash the Daily Mail and the far-right in Europe. But we have to talk about how how it's become normalized. Why is it a respectable racism? How did it pass the dinner table test? What have liberals and leftists done to push back against this bigotry which is now resulted in in concentration camps in China and maybe future concentration camps in India and Muslim ban here in the US? has there been enough. pushback against the Republicans who pushed this crap has there. It'd be no pushback against liberals in our midst like the Bill Maher's and Sam Harris who say outrageous. You're talking about replacement theory. Sam Harris was fear mongering about Muslims Muslim numbers and demographics and fronts years ago. Which only recently very reluctantly apologized for this idea of Eurabia of Muslims taking of Arabs taking over Europe Europe? What have we done to push back against amidst and where we being when when this stuff has raised its head have? We turned a blind eye. Obama as I said didn't go almost which I think was a big mistake. Not only that you know. When he was accused of being Muslim he put it in like? I think there was a Obama campaign website. which had it in a list of color? Smith's like big calls. It was always accepting the terms of debate. And I think Colin Powell of all people said it best back in two thousand eight on meet the press..

"And you look at the history of that conflict and a lot of people in the West to waking up to it and are rightly condemning China including the trump administration to be fair to them. It's the one issue they've been good on mm-hmm but what we don't do enough self reflection to say well. What justifications the Chinese using here in fact straight after nine eleven Ezra the Chinese government went it to the UN and said you know what if the US is fighting al Qaeda with a fighting an offshoot of al Qaeda called the East Turkestan Islamic Movement? A group that no one had ever heard of no terrorism scholars. No China watches it. Heard of them and yet the Chinese government claimed this was a major part of the bin Laden network and by two thousand to the UN and the US had listed this as a terrorist organization. And since then every time the Chinese they say it's an anti-terrorism operation. Why should you be allowed to join terrorists? And we can't re educate them in outcomes. I want to know something that you just said that I think is contrary to what has become the the dominant conventional wisdom here which is in the trump era. A lot of people look back on George W Bush predicted George Bush right after nine eleven. And things he really did say and efforts he really didn't make to stop op. The aftermath of nine eleven being just a wave of anti Muslim bigotry. Yes but the way they created the concept of the war on terror the axis of Evil Vol- and so on created a context that was so malleable that a lot of other countries a lot of other players and in Washington in an even inside the Bush administration a lot of people who were bought into a clash of civilization rhetoric. Were able to create this conflict of a war. They wanted to fight on terrorism with the war. They wanted to fight on the Muslim world. And a lot of this weird debate that has burgled in the background for a long time. And trump was part about whether or not and I forget the exact wording but he's always arguing about whether or not terrorist attacks. You called Islamic extremism or Islamic Peres versus terrorism. It's part of this debate eight. It's part of this question of. Are you going to fit this into a narrative that can be used this way or you just GonNa call this terrorism and treat it as as a part of the Muslim world but a part of the terrorist problem which includes white nationalist groups and includes the Just general nationalist or regime change in groups and so on. I think you're right to put your finger on it as an one throbbing. Be Interested to hear your view on this. I wrote a piece in December. Twenty fifteen for the New York Times op-ed It was shortly after I moved to the US. The Republican the presidential race was in full swing. Trump was in the lead. Ben Qassem was in second place and I wrote a piece saying I miss George W Bush and attacked by my fellow lefties for the headline in the times and I and it was a piece saying for all of his many sins and all the people he killed one thing Bush did as you said was after nine eleven. He went to a mosque in DC. Said we're not at war with Islam. Muslim Americans our friends and our fellow citizens et Cetera et Cetera whereas trump at the time was saying panel Muslims for America. Ben Qassem was talking about about a Muslim Brotherhood. Takeover of the US Government Marco Rubio was talking about shutting down Muslim cafes. Ted Cruz was talking about sending police into Muslim. Neighborhoods Chris Christie. He was talking about turning away Muslim. Refugees John Casick was talking about setting up a department of Judeo Christian values and I was kind of like saying you know in this Republican Body Bush at. She looks like a moderate. He wouldn't be able to run right now because he's not anti Muslim everyone else And a lot of the pushback got at the time was along the lines of what you've just meant to which is as well yes. He wasn't openly bigoted. He wasn't saying making crude anti-muslim slurs will smith or conspiracy theories but he did invent an architecture of domestic repression which Muslims in the US was surveilled detained held up at airports had their mosques spied on et CETERA. And of course a broad he killed a hell hell of a lot of Muslims and now they argue it becomes you know is it better for trump. Say The quiet loud and just own up to what previous presidents including Obama with doing which which is basically targeting Muslim groups saying this is not a war on Islamism as the war on a generic idea noun on terrorism. Would you own up to attach any. This is a war against certain in groups Muslims and lots of Muslims die in the process. And I'm always torn on that because on the one hand obviously you want people just to say it on the other hand. There are huge implications nations to talk in the way that trump does one of those being the massive rise in hate crimes anti-muslim crumbs here in the US and across the world as a result of his brazen Islamaphobia. I don't think against one answer to a question like this. I will say that I think the answer. The the kind of synthesis for me as I miss George W Bush's relative personal decency compared to Donald Trump I don't think there's any doubt that he himself was a more thoughtful and decent man. But I think George W. Bush did orders what is the magnitude more damage than Donald Trump. At least up until this point and we'll see how the coming year and years play out. heated orders of magnitude more damaging donald trump and something. I wonder about with trump And I've I've made this argument and I get a bit of pushback on it but I think it's true is the crudeness and lack of strategic nick planning through its Donald Trump Voices the worst things that he represents has a couple of actually salutary effects. One is that you can see. They're really really there and truly powerful Donald Trump forces things that were submerged political movements that were given nice plight face and dressed up in a suit and tie he forces you to see what they really were all along. They were the energy powering that but I made the argument many times on this podcast that they're putting party for very long. Time has been an unusual machine that converts the energy of White Identity politics into a format usable for tax cuts for the rich and corporate deregulation. But one thing Donald Trump's done is really rip that rip into that and show but this was where the energy was coming from. This is apart the conservative base truly cared about. They cared about the defending the country from immigrants from people who are not white from social change and then Donald trump because he's not good at any this he's not does not run a administration. Well does not build support for things carefully yes He's not able to act on the scale that George W. Bush did You know Y- you go back to the Iraq Iraq war and Bush and the Bush administration spent actually a very long time building the case for that. It was wrong. It was one of the worst things we've ever done in in American foreign policy but they carefully went about through lies and half truths end. You know pulled together allies. Tony Blair was on their side and so forth one good the thing about the way. Donald Trump has handled Iran. Is He's done. None of that and there is absolutely no Huge Movement of public support for what he's done in Toronto just US uphold the other day that fifty five percent of people think. It's made us safe so I think there's a real way. In which the the way that Donald Trump operates lets you see the worst and makes it easier to combat the worst whereas George W Bush who is in every way I can possibly think of a better human being donald trump and even when he was doing bad things I think he believed they were the right things to do that they would make people say for the be good for the world. I take his motivations as as decent he did much more damage and so I think that to the extent anything has has emerged into nostalgia for his presidency. I think is terribly misplaced but nostalgia for the presidency to be held by a man who is some kind of moral core does not strike me as crazy. Yeah a minute. It doesn't cheat on his wife. Shortly after she gave birth child of basic stuff I would pick up on the points. You made there about number one. I'm with you in the school of thought that says it's incompetence that's keeping us from basically full blown fascism. If trump was competent authoritarian would be a lots more trouble in terms of Bush and going back to the point about Muslims. And what happened abroad. I I mean an interesting point about the victimhood and the inversion of victimhood if you look right now and and one of the things Muslims get cold and I have to deal with all the time anytime I wrote a piece about foreign policy all. US war crimes or any kind of grievance in Palestine you immediately got old. Muslims victimhood. Your victims actually a lot of Muslims. Say this too because there's this concept of internalize analyse Islamophobia this idea that let's stop being victims which is great. Let's do that doesn't mean you don't call out what's going wrong when you look at for example the war on terror quote unquote. You have plenty of studies. Sharing the death toll among Muslims in places like Iraq Afghanistan Pakistan is anywhere between a million two million maybe three million Physicians for Social Responsibility put report last year. Saying two million would be a conservative estimate. Brown University has similar study in study of the war on terror in terms of deaths since nine. Eleven in the muslim-majority Weld. That's a phenomenal. Amount of people killed as a result of A. US led war. Then you throw in the groups like Isis al Qaeda Boko Haram and we. We all know that they're number. One victims are not Americans or Brits or French they all Muslims living in those countries where they're operating Muslims are the number one victims of these quote unquote terrorist groups. And then you go number three which is kicked off the show with which is must have minorities living in Thoreau. -Tarian countries now like China like India like Myanmar which is seen seen. The Muslim minority as a useful scapegoat to project all of its fears onto to make it responsible for all the problems in that country and to justify its own domestic repression Russian and of course divert the populace which is always a good thing to do when you have a minority to bully so on kind of multiple levels right now. You'll see Muslims getting killed hild massacred rate detained and just from a purely strategic point of view. Even if you're not a bleeding heart liberal even if you don't give a damn about any Muslims around the world this is not too good good for world security or well stability because all of this comes back to bite someone in the US..

"Human rights situation Xinjiang and will look closely at the available evidence so they didn't I guess. Tell us whether or not then you about the whereabouts all the fate of of those twenty three Australians. The documents mentioned Nar. Nothing in specifics. it's still quite annoyed and whether any Australian citizen is currently scenery Educational Vocational Training Center in Xinjiang. We during our that. Some citizens were briefly. Detained in two thousand seventeen for questioning. But we're released so it's an open question really. Struggling government has not indicated that they are currently Australians in the camps. ECON help it see a real contrast. Right between saint instances where Australian citizens have been detained in foreign countries particularly authoritarian countries. Detained on pretty arbitrary or on the grounds that that the government really has a lot to say about that. And there's a big media campaign in effort to to get them out or at least to point the finger at that problem. mm-hmm how do we account for the relative or passively of these cases. Well I think it's a very complex situation. One thing is that it's very hard to get detailed information out of China. I assume defend my probably have better information than us here sitting at this table but in general it is really hard to know what's happening in a region of the world that is essentially closed down for communication communication is monitored it is limited. So it's hard to get solid information out then. There's just the complexity of Australia's relationship with China. In general we are so reliant on them For trade that there is a some unwillingness according to some sources for people in the government to rock the boat on this in fact one of the best sources of information about this beyond these documentaries today is the Wego diaspora so so the way gay community here in Australia has been raising the alarm about this for a long time. There are plenty of Australia. Australian wages who have family and friends still there and in many cases. They don't really know where they are what they're doing right now whether the detained or not and we did speak to The head of the East Turkistan Australian Association Shen Adam Tehran. His own father died shortly after being released from detention and he told us that every single one of us has a family member or friend or teacher or a student or neighbor neighb- who's been detained in what he calls concentration camps that has a big impact on me. Personally I live that everyday. And that's all they me and I don't think I'm the line in this in this situation. I think a hundred so thousands of Australian leaguers here in Australia And round the world. We all have relatives or friends being detained so a positive sort of side of it is because of it's happening to every families and we coming into round the world we united it has one and we don't give up and we fight against the invader.

"Successful. But as far as these broad brush policies monitoring, Muslims, again, this example in New York, where for almost a decade NYPD was spying on these Muslim communities all around the broader northeast. There were no leads those entirely ineffective by what we can tell in that end the NYPD admitted that you know at the end of the program when it was shutting down. So as far as preventing attacks that the money spent, there didn't prevent anything. And in fact of my book suggests that in some ways it might have actually alienated. Some of our country's biggest supporters advocates of stopping these attacks and not is you know, Muslims themselves. My book I find I talked to hundreds of Muslims around the country are just as concerned as other Americans about attacks on the country on other Americans and have been incredibly helpful to police in stopping these attacks. In fact, many authors site Muslims as the single largest source of information. Mation that led to disrupted plots meeting. They've been providing tips that have you know prevented, you know, harm from happening. And the concern is that these type of policies targeting and singling out Muslims might cause individuals to worry that, hey, the police is not treating me fairly, it might, okay. My safe to even approach place, talk to them about any concerns that might have. Can you giving an example of a time Muslim community has been helpful to law enforcement and preventing an attack? There was a case a mosque and his lung center in Irvine, California, and two thousand six reported suspicious new member who seemed to be, you know, discussed jihad with other Moscow hours and just sort of weird rhetoric. He was having they reported him to the FBI and actually it was revealed a few years later with a separate case that that individual was actually an undercover FBI informant that was trying to conjure up. You know, sort of tried to see if he could get anyone to sort of sympathize with his rhetoric around, you know, jihad, whatnot, but in fact, you know, the moss the community there had turned him in. So they had turned in an FBI informant. And there has been a number of cases like this where you know communities recognize these newcomers or people that are standing out and saying bizarre stuff. They are happy to go to the police and say, hey, we don't know what this guy's about. We're not sure. And there's been several instances where they've turned these individual in or or at least gave a heads up to the police. So while you've been writing this book, you've had this opportunity to interview members of the Muslim community about how these surveillance programs have affected their daily lives. So in what way did these programs change their view of the US government or their willingness to help and counterterrorism efforts? Yeah, what's been really interesting is that throughout the book, what I found is that the most integrated Muslims, though the ones that know the United States, the best, those who have been born. And raised here are full fledged Americans. No American values went to the same schools have the same expectations of government as you know, all of us do. They're the ones that have been most sort of shocked and frustrated by mini these broad brush surveillance programs as you can imagine, you know, sort of see them as like, hey, if this was happening in any other community, this would be absolutely unacceptable, but because it's happening to Muslims, you know how come more Americans aren't also outraged by this. Right? And so what this seems to have done is made US foreign Muslims, American Muslims little more skeptical police, you know, they've seen cases again, we're informants are in mosques. They many perceive them as trying to entice young people who would normally be inclined to support radical ideas, the FBI against sending informed. To try to draw out radicals just has made more Muslims, less trustful police than they worry about engaging with police at all concerning that they'll be wrapped up in an investigation just for having religious beliefs just for having political beliefs that are normally protected under the first amendment. Just from many examples in cases throughout the country where Muslims have been followed or implented because of against simple first amendment protected beliefs or activities. Foreign born Muslims while many are indeed fearful, especially under the Trump administration about these different policy changes..
