"ramallah" Discussed on KQED Radio
"Hi. It's good to see you if even through this strange technology, Yeah, but to see you, too. Roger Shahada is a lawyer and a writer. And he's based in Ramallah in the West Bank. So Roger Neftali Bennett is now prime Minister of Israel. How is this news being received in Ramallah? Well, the news in Ramallah about the elections is that, uh, It doesn't make much difference between Benjamin Netanyahu and next Taliban. It I think it does make some difference, but essentially that on the same track. It makes a difference as far as Israel is concerned, because Netanyahu is hiring a lot of institutions later, but it's not that the Palestinians are concerned. That they're they're made from the same cloth. Of the Palestinians given up on Israeli politics completely. I mean, what possible hope can can be found in the Israeli political scene. The left is practically a dead letter. Unfortunately, that is true. I read this speech to the Knesset of Naftali Bennett. And there's nothing in it about peace education about making peace with the Palestinians. It repeats the same old. Of the Palestinians don't recognize the existence of the Israeli people, Jewish Israeli people on the land and and that they will continue with the settlements and that they will stop the as building of Palestinians on what is called area C, which is 60% of the territory of the West Bank. There's not much hope nothing to hold on to hope in becoming Regime at the same time, ultimately, it's It's only through Israel that we can make peace. And so it's really disappointing that there isn't a political structure in Israel, which calls for peace to peace with the Palestinians or recognition of the existence of the Palestinians. What is the political effect the political aftermath and even the psychological aftermath among the Palestinians of the recent conflict. Last month. Well, the Palestinians, unfortunately, have come to see that making, uh, an armed struggle with the Israelis works to some extent, because now the train is considered. How are the Christians are going to react? And we never did that. They just want, uh, guys that without having any consideration that the action now at least they're considering there is interaction. This is on the one side. On the other side. The Hamas won a lot of support amongst the Palestinians because the Palestinians In the West Bank, for example, could see that the strategy that the Palestinian Authority was following, which was to kneel down to the Israelis to try and get negotiations going, and so on and making concessions. All of that was not getting them anywhere. Mess is considered a terrorist group by the United States and elsewhere in the world, and it's not had a chance to run an election beyond Gaza. How would An election if it were permitted. By the Palestinian Authority come out. If elections take place Hamas with women. Roger. Could you see yourself voting for Hamas or after all these years? I think it's a tragedy to see it that way because Hamas extend for everything I don't like, and Hamas if you're through here with curb, uh, individual rights and the same problem with with the party in Israel, which is now part of the government. It stands for everything that the Palestinians in is they do not want. And likewise with Mr Rogers. Forgive me for being rude, but how old are you? Am I was born I am about to be 70. So You're 70 years old. The situation is what it is now. Do you hold any hope for there being Any kind of peace, any kind of reconciliation any kind of true political deal with Israel. In your lifetime. I think not. Because the way I see it is really not moving towards essentials for peace. And for me, the essentials for peace are coming to terms without the Israel did to the Palestinians in the course of its establishment. And there's no indication whatsoever that there is movement in that direction. And so as long as is it denies that the Israel was established on the backs of the Palestinians and by forcing the Palestinians out of the land. I don't see any possibility for real peace. Of course, many Israelis would be quick to point out. That how is it possible to make peace with particularly Hamas led Palestinians? Whose charter calls for the elimination of the state of Israel. Yeah, You know the charter of the could, and the Israeli government is no less fanatic than the Hamas because they see all the land of greater Israel is which includes the West Bank and Gaza. Is it is so if you want to look at who is can etiquette Israel is fanatic as well as genetic, So it's not really just the fault of Hamas in this regard. Roger.

Soft Power 2020
"Am joined today on special soft power program by mongols foreign editor megan gibson monocle culture editor kiara ramallah and monocle twenty four culture correspondent and eurovision desk chief. Fernando augusto up. We have a lot to cover in analyzing who made l. top ten this year and who didn't but we should talk about first of all meghan. What an unusual year for calibrating soft power. This was because of course it was like every country on earth given the same test it was like he is a pandemic deal revert. And see what it says about you. As a nation did it make a difference on how countries will seen by the rest of the world and soft power terms. It absolutely did like you said every country was dealing pretty much the same set of problems but just as internally the pandemic kind of shed light on where countries weren't up to snuff and where there's certain systems were lacking or the social welfare net was not working so too did a show which countries were really relying on kind of coasting approach to diplomacy and soft power. Every country had to turn inward in some respect. You had to face an economy. Crunch you had to face a healthcare crisis but a lot of countries still managed to think about diplomacy and what. They're projecting abroad and to other countries and global cooperation. And that is something. I think that kind of threw up some surprises when we actually looked at the year in terms of soft power some countries that have never made our list before immediately caught our eye. Well let's talk about that. We'll come back a bit later to how different countries responded to the covid nineteen crisis. But let's look first of all at our top ten and meghan all ask you again. You were talking about surprise entries in the top ten. Who is there. The see that hasn't been before i think the first one. I'm going to go to taiwan. And i should say we've done top ten this year. Usually we do top twenty five. We quickly realized that there weren't twenty five countries. That actually made that good impression on the world. I would say this year. A peace prize in the nineteen forties. Exactly we cut it down to ten and picked the ten countries that did something notable on the world stage and taiwan absolutely one of them from their stellar leadership in actually handling the virus. Which i mean has seen the country. Even today has had quite a minimal effect. On at the helm of its citizens numbers have been tiny and given their proximity to china. Remarkable for that. That's just been something that they've really been able to step up and show that they've had good leadership and for such a tiny country and a country that has been long grappling with a very antagonistic neighbor. That's been really impressive. And i think we've also could look at another country that has made our list consistently but also small and has done really well with the pandemic and that's new zealand new zealand again a beneficiary of its leadership and of its leader. Another factor we will come back to later in the show. I wanted to bring you in now. Kiara refu- look at the top ten. Were there any entries in there that left out at you. It's difficult for me to look at this without my cultural hat on. Because i do think that cultural exports make up so much of a country soft power their own way. You know if you do have a tv hit. That really can change. The international perspective of people have on your country in the issue. We have profile of borgen. The danish show which kind of guess kicked off almost a huge facination with scanning wa. I'm happy that south korea is in the fair number and i were discussing. Grammy results on are getting their first ever kind of major grammy nomination. I mean that is huge because the grammys are essentially a us kind of awards ceremony. Yes of course it has one global subcategory but it's largely. Us fakest for a korean bond to be nominated as part of that really means that they have become not only a korean band moore global bond and that radius testament to the power of capes. I think south korea has really well deserved second-place cultural reasons but also for all the other reasons dr megan was discussing. It's very interesting. Also you you know you mentioned new zealand as well and perhaps it's a very niche reason to be very well known abroad but i do think that new zealand has got an increasing amount of really interesting. Musical acts that are genuinely world class. I'm talking the likes of zuma. Alice harding benet talking. Broods mullen williams all quite indie acts but in the the community which is very dedicated. Genuinely these are kind of agenda setting also around the world. So i think it's really interesting. That a tiny nation can produce a really interesting side of the musical experimentation side of things obviously around this table. Four nations are represented all nations with instantly recognizable and widely understood national brands. And that's my nation of australia. Kiara of italy fernando's of brazil megan's of canada which i notice is the only one in the top ten. This whole thing is just the most shameless stitch-up so fernando to bring you in brazil a country with a powerful national brand and yet you are not in the top ten this year. Do you feel especially put out by that is. Is there a case you would like to make well. No no no not not in two thousand twenty eight gave you the big buildings builder. People would be surprised by me. Because i always a believer brazilian. I'm very proud of being resilient. And i am still an and we do have an amazing opportunity to be one of the best countries in soft power so perhaps in a few years will be there the top of the list but honestly i mean this year has been terrible for brazil president. He's an isolationist. he's not handling very well. The situation in the rain forest which matters a lot for the outside world. Perhaps those of us who enjoy breathing so exactly. But i mean it. It is an issue in brazil. but i notice. We've all my friends when they say. Oh how during forest the amazon. Your president doesn't care. And of course his declaration sometimes every day he said something quite offensive to specific groups. And it's funny. I was trying to say i mean. What is brazil doing. well now we. We are student load of great things but even at football you have. Our biggest star neymar liked by some. But he's but even in brazil. Laura people don't like neymar like perhaps some aspects of his personality. So then i think even football. We're not so well liked turfing. We need to improve. I am an optimistic. I think things will change but two thousand twenty is yeah. I agree it. It's not the year of brazil. And i do think this year has been a blip for a lot of countries and as i was saying you know cultural experts from italy. Obviously still very strong italian food still eating around the world unloved around the world especially on this table but this year it was all about the countries that had cut through and what the cut through was what the stories that were resonating around. The world like fernandez. The amazon is what people were thinking about. When they thought about brazil they were not thinking of amazing beaches. Or you know wonderful culture and things like that it was the bad headlines that were really being projected around the world just finally in this first part of the show. I am going to rise heroically above complaining too much about the struggles exclusion in favor of new zealand. And just let these self evident absurdity of that speak for itself but meghan there couple of other countries which again have shoes soft power in princeton fact arguably the countries with the to hugest soft power imprint i e the united kingdom and the united states neither of the mike it and is that just about covid nineteen and all the people who happened to be leading them at the moment. It is definitely down to leadership. Soft power is usually something that is built up over years and decades so usually it can survive a bad year it can survive a wrong thinking government but in the case of the uk and definitely the us. It's not that. Diplomacy was neglected in the last few years. I mean we've seen a lot of policies that have been actually hostile to global cooperation. And i think a lot of people's perceptions of those countries have really shifted especially when it comes to the us under donald trump.

"Well, we are in the book of. Chapter Nine. This book of judges is proving to be one of the most interesting books we've taken up. We took it up really as a matter of schedule. Regarding into the historical books, but it's really startling to realize that the period of the judges I. is characterized by four statements. There was no king in Israel. Everybody did what right in their own is that as an indictment of its low morality and so on The word of God was disparaged discarded. And they were in bondage. Astonishing is to realize how prophetic the book of judges turns out to be. Because those four characteristics are today. There is no king in Israel. There's a king coming. Not Expecting. Everyone's doing right. What's in their own is this route value relativism is standard in our countries or cultural basis. Now you have your truth, I have mind kind of nonsense. There's a disregard for the word of God the Biblical illiteracy even when Christians is astonishing. But praised God spirit is movie. And Our culture is in bondage. Binds the and to see. The. Most UNBE. They believe the most unbelievable live all the absence of design in the universe. The whole concept anyway I want to start on that. Let's move on. One other interesting aspect is the book just by way of Review be getting in the book of judges. Joshua's told to conquer land and he did. But they were also told to wipe out every man woman and child certain tribes. And they failed to do that. And those pockets? Of appeasement grew the pockets of strength and pockets of abuse to them. And the book of judges goes through. The penalties of them, not doing what God told them to do. What is fascinating is to realize the geography of the book of judges I've left the maps. We're going to do that near the person special reviews. But the primary places? That they failed to root out their enemies. Was Jericho capital. Bet. Ya The house of Moon God. The Golan Heights. Ever, on. Ramallah the Gaza Strip That sound familiar to that sound like it's out of the front pages of today's paper. Those are the same pockets of their adversaries to this day. Interesting.

Israel and the UAE: why now and whats next?
"Is the greatest advancements toward peace between Israel and the Arab world in the last twenty, six years and it marks the third formal peace between Israel and an Arab nation. The diplomatic, Reproche Mon to nounce between Israel and the United Arab, Emirates last week is not in and of itself quite as big a deal as its orchestrators wished to claim the two countries have never been to war with each other the official hostility to Israel such as it was usually sounded pretty phoned in done for foresake when other Arab governments let fly with the fire-breathing choruses of condemnation in Israel's direction. The were generally very much in the back row of the quoi royal mumbling vaguely along hoping to be noticed. Israel and the US you have. Long. Dealt pretty, easily with each other Israeli ministers have made official visits to the Emirates. There are plentiful commercial ties between the countries Israel had already been invited to exhibit at Expo Twenty Twenty in by the intelligence services of Israel, and the have also long cooperated. The first official Israeli visited to the after the deal was announced was Yossi Cohen, director, of Masa Truly historic moment not since the Israel Jordan peace treaty was signed more than twenty years ago has so much. Progress has been made towards peace in the. Middle, East? By United Jew of America's closest and most capable partners in the region something which said could not be done. This deal is a significant step towards building a more peaceful secure and prosperous middle. East US President Donald Trump is claiming credit for brokering this agreement but suggestions by his proxies and flunkies that this is somehow worthy of the Nobel peace prize he frantically desires. somewhat optimistic granted that President Trump's predescessor barrack Obama was just given. One is a sort of housewarming present but an exchange of ambassadors between Israel and the U. A is just not a seismic recalibration comparable with the peace reached between Egypt and Israel in Nineteen, seventy, eight or Israel and Jordan in nineteen, ninety, four, I say to the people of Israel and Jordan. Now. You must make this peace real. To, turn no man's land into every man's home. To take down the barbed wire to remove the deadly minds. To help the. wounds. Of War to heal. However via the normalization of Israeli, Emirati relations may not be big deal. It may portend things which are indeed it's the fact that it isn't a big deal which may be the really big deal here. Israel's only two previous such agreements with countries as referenced above were with Egypt and Jordan neighbors against whom they fought wars. They were extraordinary responses to extraordinary circumstances. The agreement with the UI founds a diplomatic relationship which seems more or less remarkable than say, a diplomatic relationship between Denmark and Malaysia Will Senegal and Peru. It could have a domino effect. There are already suggestions that some other Arab, states including. Bahrain and Morocco a coming around to the U. I-IT's way of thinking where Israel is concerned and from there, what else might be possible Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has already spoken of hope that the direct flights which will shortly link Israel and the could be allowed to cross the skies above. Saudi Arabia. The prospect of an Israeli embassy in Riyadh might not seem exactly likely just yes. But nor does it seem any longer like a completely demented fantasy? I've Alanine Adam first of all. In our opinion this action is incorrect wrong one hundred percents. And it is a betrayal of the Palestinian. People and the will of Muslims and the will of quotes. Villas in autumn on Amazon one. Zero. Two significant shifts underpinning this realignment one is that in recent years Israel and the Arab states have discovered something they agree on Iran which regard as some combination of nuisance menace and existential threat. The other is that Israel and the Arab states have discovered something that they no longer disagree on at least old that much Palestine, which the rest of the Arab world seems less and less keen on pretending to care about a much ballyhooed component of the Israel you deal was Israel's promised to suspend its plans to annex the West. Bank. But it is difficult to believe Israel was ever entirely serious about that. Indeed it sounds in the light of the agreement exactly like the kind of mad idea you float. So you can make a big thing of agreeing not to do it as part of a subsequent diplomatic negotiation. News of the Israel. You a deal was very much not greeted by widespread dancing and celebrate tree hooting of car hoons in Gaza and Ramallah. There have been from Palestinian sources grim mutterings about betrayal by their fellow Arabs. Unfortunately, nowadays, most of the Arab is looking after their own interests at the expense of the Palestinian course. The wretched reality is that it's nothing. So sinister, it is simply that Palestine is increasingly regarded in Arab capitals as yesterday's cause and as a baffling boring headache one of the hardiest diplomatic truisms is Lord Pompton Quip that nations have no permanent friends no permanent enemies just permanent interests right now to the UAE and other Arab states which may follow.

"Is gonna have to make. They have refused all peace offers for many, many decades, but I think they were relying on the fact that people believed internationally as well as in the region. That the road to peace with any Arab state goes to Ramallah. Ah Ah, and it doesn't the road to peace with the Palestinians goes through Ramadi, but the road to peace for their states goes to Cairo. It goes through a month. It goes to Abu Dhabi, and it goes through other capitals. And I think if the Arab states move toward peace with Israel if they start making agreements with several countries It might be that forces within Palestinian society who would like to reach a historic compromise with Israel, and there are those forces within the back society. They're not ascended today, but maybe they will be able to confront the rejectionists among the Palestinians and tell them you have to give up the fantasy that you're going to be able to destroy Israel. You have to move toward peace with Israel. The Arab world is not waiting for you. The train has left the station and yesterday the Emirates really became the first car in that train, and we hope there will be others. Ambassador German Unless you go you mentioned you hope There are other cars on that train. Who were you hoping steps up to the plate next? Well, one of the big successes yesterday was the fact that this was done in secret and was a big surprise and in the Middle East Generally, If you want to have a success, you have to keep things very tight, and I really commend President Trump, Jared Kushner and his whole team for keeping this very tight hold and on Lee releasing it when it was ready to be released. I can assure you that there are other countries. That are very close to these breakthroughs as well. But we'll have to keep it close. Hold on, and when it comes out, it will come out of time when it's going to be very real. And then you can invite me back on your way. Would love to have you just 30 seconds. How instrumental was Jared Kushner? You mentioned him several times. Very important. I think he look he recognized And deserves great credit for recognizing this historic moment of opportunity. He had built very good relationships both him and obviously President Trump with the leaders of the region with Prime Minister Netanyahu with the Israeli public, frankly, because you know this was a president that withdrew from the nuclear deal with Iran, which we saw is a great danger to us, and so did the Arab states. Recognized. Rustam is our capital that recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, And so he had enormous credibility with the Israeli public. He also had credibility. Both President Trump and Jared had credibility with the Arab leadership. And he recognized this opportunity that he could translate that credibility and goodwill into this breakthrough and for that we are very grateful to him to his team into the president, and like I said, We hope there's going to be a lot more to come. And then we can put The Middle East on a on a path towards peace. I called a lot of people yesterday. I said. I hate to be the bearer of good news from the Middle East, but only once every quarter century. But I think we should all celebrate it and I was also it was also nice to see the broad bipartisan backing for this agreement. I was one of those rare moments when you see the politics put aside. Yes, celebrate peace, and that's a good thing. Well, congratulations on a job. Well done and continue your in your celebration enjoyed Ambassador Ron Dermer. Thank you. Thank you.

Deal of the Century: Jason Greenblatt, the Heart of the Deal
"Was one of the chief architects. I worked very closely with two good friends of mine. Jared Kushner president trump's son-in-law and senior adviser to president trump. As, well as our friend, ambassador David Friedman the US ambassador to Israel. And I would agree with you that it's an opportunity to the next generation, but I would say aides and opportunity for the next generation of everybody in the region, Israelis Palestinians and all of our countries that surround them. I think that people have come to the realization that the past peace efforts have failed. They are unlikely to succeed, and what we have presented is a very detailed very lengthy plan that could show everybody what the compromises are. That are necessary in order to achieve peace and I think that the younger generation in the region is ready for this I think that believe that the Palestinian people deserve something so much better than the half I think that if we succeed, if peace is achieved, everybody in the region can benefit from it tremendously now it's as if in anticipation of the Palestinian. Authority's rejection of the plan. You'd also consulted with Palestinian people on the ground. I guess ground groundswell is also the key to making peace. It's in the hearts of the people as well as the leadership. Absolutely first of all it was no secret test that the Palestinian Authority would likely reject the plan any plan frankly that we put out. When President Trump made his bold and courageous historic decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and several months later move the embassy, both in accordance with US law something that US law required since nineteen, ninety five. The Palestinian Authority cut ties to the administration. But they also began to trash. Talk the plan that they have not yet seen in in the months. Preceding the launch of the plan, they rejected the plan including using statements by their prime minister. Such as the plan should be born dead. It should be a stillborn something to that effect. That's not quite an exact quote, but that was the tone of the conversation about the plan, but what everybody should realizes it isn't just the leadership that is necessary to get on board. It is essential for people to get on board, and if the people are not with this plan whether Israeli or The plan has little chance to succeed. I also want to add. We have to remember that. Really are two leaderships for the Palestinians or at least one leadership in Ramallah and one so-called leadership in Gaza. Hamas, which was a terrorist organization funded by Iran, and that subjugates the nearly two million Palestinians that live in Gaza causes tremendous suffering to those Palestinians. is whether we like it or not. At some form of Palestinian leadership, so even if the leadership in Ramallah even if President Obama's were to engage the plant. One has to wonder and really talk about what happens to the Palestinians, in Gaza, our plan of course provides for that, but we can't get the people in Gaza in their their so called leadership on board than there is no effective way to implement the peace plan. Very few people talk about that. Make It seem as though it's simple. If president us, either condemns the plan or engages on the plan then. Then we know our next steps while that's a bit too simplistic. We must all figure out a way to handle and deal with the two million Palestinians who are suffering in Gaza.

Palestinian refugees insulted by Trump's 'shameful' deal
"Morning president trump has outlined his plan for peace in the Middle East he announced the deal yesterday at the White House he was with Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu it calls for two states Israel and a quote future state of Palestine I want this deal to be a great deal for the Palestinians has to be today's agreement is a historic opportunity for the Palestinians to finally achieve an independent state of their very own after seventy years of little progress this could be the last opportunity they will ever have the envisioned Palestinian state would remain under Israeli security control which is something that Palestinians say is unacceptable and the president says Jerusalem will remain the undivided capital of Israel the Palestinians want at least part of Jerusalem as their own capital for any future state online with me now from Ramallah is ten nine astro weeks he's an executive committee member of the Palestine Liberation Organization the main political body representing Palestinians this group rejects the plan Mrs Riley thanks for joining us thank you my pleasure and honor my past president of the Palestinian authority was quoted as saying of this plan a thousand times no one I know well it's not the Palestinians are saying no I think we should put things in proper perspective as Israelis and Americans are saying no to justice not to international law not to recognition of signed agreements not to international humanitarian law and not to the global consensus on the requirements of peace what they're doing as as as for Jane are working together for an agreement that there is an Israeli American agreement at first it was cynically timed in order to meet the needs of their not ten Yahoo is that corruption charges and their camps impeachment trial and of course both that impending elections and at the same time totally meeting Israeli needs accommodating Landsat accommodating settlements annexation of Jerusalem all of these are war crimes and you getting the borders of Palestine maintaining the occupation on re inventing the defining the occupation to become as system of control why telling the Palestinians down the road if you're a good little boys and girls who may have had with that because they this is certainly not an SFE for peace that set us up before that but you ation of the occupation and the conflict let me ask you something you mention the Palestinians being cut out of this the Palestinians did stop talking to the trump administration after president trump said he would move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem I wonder now looking back do you think it was a mistake to not be part of this process whether one is no press this button please speaking then what do you mean by that there was no process because the Americans were busy coordinating with the Israelis and then delivering to Israel illegally unilateral steps when the you is this administration I'm not saying the U. S. as when this administration went temp decide that that is going to recognize is as illegal and exceptional Jerusalem out capital Palestinian territory occupied by Israel not only to recognize it to move unilaterally and illegally in the American embassy to Jerusalem and then closing the embassy the the consulate to and from Jerusalem which was the diplomatic mission to Palestine in eighteen forty four closing our mission and palace and that Washington and then the funding everything Palestinian and then attacking the refugees and so it meant that the Americans have become really partners with this man and as the war crime of of annexation and expansionism you are saying there was no point to have been part of this process each the it wouldn't have made any sense the way the situation was going let me ask you about some of the specifics in the plan it would allow this plan it would allow Israel to annex some contested settlements in the west bank Israel is planning a vote on that as soon as this weekend what would your response be if Israel does vote to annex those settlements well first of all these I'm not contest that settlements these out illegal settlements built illegally on Palestinian land frankly speaking that annexing and they're out extending Israeli law on the settlements and what they're doing is giving them to themselves that I could continue with the process that's been taking place they have expanded they have built in more than half a million settlers into the west bank they have stolen a lot of land already so they're staying is saying we're going to vote that we're going to keep it and we're going to expand what will saying is that there has to be accountability for is that that have to be curbs on Israeli behavior and lawlessness and of course the US has only emboldened and supported these ones now if they take such a step of course that would be protests of course most of the world I mean people have been issuing statements we have hundreds of you and his emotions and they haven't been and payment that and everybody says no we cannot accept this this is a legal from the E.

Do genetic ancestry tests know if youre Palestinian? A cautionary tale of race and science
"Welcome welcome to size friction on the tension ritual in. Today's episode is Genomic Science to go to striking story for you of the shocks. You can engage when you take a genetic ancestry tests and the problems are not in your Diana. They are in the science. Oh man so so I want you to make mercury eight to buy. Oh my gosh. So she's an American Palestinian cartoonist illustrator. Leaving in Brooklyn New York and when Shae Shea started to draw well I kind of helped his stop making sense of the world. When I was younger all I wanted to do withdraw from Warwick fantasy characters? who were you know exploring some fantasy world adventuring trying to figure out the meaning of war? Yeah you Matz I. She was an intense keyed. He'd sigh relate to that. I'm not even joking. That was my first comic when I was like thirteen or fourteen trying to figure out the meaning of war yes the law plot. What was really hard? Core rate was trying to figure out the world her family stories. We're helping figure out a self my family. So my my Palestinian side of the family were originally from Ramallah they came to the US in the sixties after the nineteen sixty seven war. And and. That's where my father. My mother my mother is mostly of British and Scottish ancestry and they met in DC and the register and Marguerite was born. She grew up in San Francisco but she understood whole lot about the deep heritage in history. If if family I lived with a lot of my extended family on my father's side and and the constantly I mean I think it's a very Palestinian thing to talk about loss. I'm sorry to say Palestine and talk about what was lost in talk about how it was and things like that so I heard very much about out where we were from and how it was there and everything and there is actually a book. That is a congenial logical history of Ramallah so my family needs to say his in this book. This is actually a book that was done maybe thirty years ago. There's actually a recent effort to update the books so this is kind of a big thing and it's very much a Palestinian thing to try to keep memory alive. It's a need to assure after that. Hey you know we exist who've had the we had this entire history. We're going to write it somewhere. We're going to you know. Put it somewhere. I wish I could've seen Palestine back in the day honestly because it just sounds really chill a nice. I'd like to go okay. Okay so mercury thought. She had a pretty clear idea about her ancestry but then she sped into a test tube. Well first half-brother on her father's side spat into a test tube. He decided on a whim to take a day and I taste and he got the results back in he was just blake. Yeah you might want to take a look at these results. He's her kind of weird. Well we'd in an intriguing conaway. Our understanding ending was that from my Dad's side. We were fully half Palestinian half Arab but these results they suggested something different so so we were just like what so marguerite decided to do an ancestry test to this was back in two thousand sixteen. They went through twenty three and me did the all spit in a tube and she said it off to the company twenty-three May and literally Chino. Even more surprises would be in store for her so the saliva gets to our partner lab. The DNA is extracted from that. and My name Ms Joanna Mountain and I'm senior. Director of research at twenty three and me and previously at Stanford with Joanna also did her PhD and specialized in human evolutionary evolutionary genetics. So when customers sign on with the genetic testing and Analysis Company twenty-three May which is headquartered in Silicon Valley. He's what what happens to this speech sample around a half. A million positions in the DNA are analyzed and we get the genetic variants at those half million positions genetic knitting variant. Now that just means some kind of unique variation in your genomes deny say quance so then twenty three and me use an automated computerized Haraz prices to p different stretches or windows of your day and I and then I compare those two James off a reference group made up of individuals individuals from different populations globally. Now what ethnicities are present or missing from that reference group. That's K. as you'll he'll IDA and and we look at each one of these little windows and we say to which people is this individual most genetically similar and we continue as we stroll along the genome looking and saying well at this point this genome looks very similar to people from say Iberia and then we get a little further down in. Wow it looks similar to people from commoner and even in further down. It looks similar to people from Ireland. So there's a method we have that classifies each little patch of the genome by saying. Is this more similar to people from Ireland Orland or from France and then the algorithm says okay the probability that's from Ireland and appropriately. France in whichever is highest. Is the winner there so then we patch it all together come up with percentages for each individual so it's a multi step process and that's what we present to the customer okay so back back to margarite radium waiting for the results from twenty three and May to land in her inbox and sure enough. I got I got the results back and Some of them made sense. You know I knew enough about my mother's side of the family told me that okay. HALF OF ME is British and Scottish Scottish. Okay cool makes sense what came next made very little sense to her. Other half is going on percent Italian Elian it said thirty five percent Italian and then the rest was Arab Specifically Oh what did it say. Think specifically had said western Western Asian or something they actually tried to give me a breakdown of what regions of Italy it came from but they couldn't actually detect wherein Italy. It came from at all Wade. It'll Italian come from and actually I think is sweet coincidence. Is it true that your husband is Italian. My husband is Italian and I did actually when I got the test I did ask him like do I look talion. He was just like no suddenly just like that. Migrate was possibly thirty percent Italian and only fifteen percent western Asian and north African and canete slightly saving detail that she is Palestinian heritage. We'll wait until you hear what happened. Win Twenty Twenty three and may updated her results two years later. It's fairly incredible. I though Hel genetically different we really well at the genome scale there. Her over three billion nucleotides that make up our genome. So My name is Sarah Tishkov and I may professor of genetics awesome biology at the University of Pennsylvania and she's hugely influential Sarah and colleagues published the first pipe to support the out of Africa hypothesis of human migration using analysis of the DNA inside cells Nuclei and has conducted the largest studies of genetic variation in in African populations. We differ at about. I would say less than point. One percent of the genome. So that's a relatively small mall amount of difference to give you an idea of we. Compared the human genome to a chimp genome. It differs at about one point. Five percent of the genome less than point point one percent and yet what is contained within that variation that difference the majority of variation is not functional and in fact that variation is very useful for making inferences about evolutionary history about population history demographic McGrath history tracing migration events and so on the part of the genome it actually is influencing variable traits is important for understanding how how we adapted to different environments during human evolution and also understanding why some people are more at risk for certain diseases than others
