Chief the full results of the elections are expected to be released in april last night. The tel aviv international salon hosted a virtual question and answer with prime minister. Benjamin netanyahu moderated by la harka of the top diplomatic relation correspondent from the jerusalem. Post elections are just a couple of weeks away on march twenty third and although the event was short just around the half hour. The prime minister addressed a wide array of topics about defeating the coronavirus revitalizing. Israel's economy neutralizing the threat of a nuclear iran strengthening ties between israel.

As an american who's been living in israel for half a year now and choosey. Netanyahu speak just a handful of times my biggest takeaway from last night is how captivating he can be how he presents himself as a strong leader the protector and defender of israel on the world stage. Or at least. That's how he put it multiple times last night. Netanyahu is extremely effective in tying this notion to any issue. He's leading israel to the other side of the covid pandemic he's revitalizing israel's economy with free market reforms and a transformation to renewable energy. He's orchestrating peace deals with israel's arab neighbors. When you paint yourself as a real life iron man who's taking your country to new heights. Why wouldn't your citizens continue to vote for you. Netanyahu's line of the night was who else is going to do it. Only i can. They can't fly the plane of course referring to the other candidates for prime minister. Tony bennett gideon. So are and yet year lead chair of the issue tea party and opposition leader in the israeli knesset. Netanyahu took a multiple shots at yet year. Lupita last night's interview labelling him as the country's worst finance minister in history and his view or any other candidate for that matter wouldn't be able to revitalize israel's post covid economy. Netanyahu took credit for persuading pfizer journal to build manufacturing plants to produce vaccines in israel. Saying they wouldn't pick up the phone for anyone else. Israel is providing a real world example for reopening and netanyahu is banking on israel's success to get him reelected will. Thank you for your insights. Their miles we also have from last night. The final question of the night which came from an audience member it was. What does the prime minister do in his free. Time to unwind well. Netanyahu took the question and admitted that. He's an avid reader reading. Mostly history books and told the story of a college student who wanted to go into politics. And ask netanyahu what he should study. Netanyahu replied three subjects history history and history. Well let's see if history will repeat itself later this month if the israeli public relax the already longest serving prime minister in israel's history all right well. That's it for today's news.

And the work that's being done right now to make sure that That agreement, He's more and more prosperity for the region as a whole, and not just the two nations, Bahrain in Israel. It's ah, by rain was actually a natural partner, and it's something we've discussed before. But your predecessor as ambassador was a Jewish woman. And there's a Jewish community in Bahrain and along an openness on the part of the government. I remember when the emir was in New York and had this amazingly warm reception with members of the Jewish community who are ex Patriots. So in that sense, it was a natural. But how? How is the reaction amongst the people today? And how do you see the bottom up collaboration towards warm piece is opposed to the cold piece. In other instances? Thank you. Welcome. I think that first of all, Ah piece allows people to understand each other. To learn from each other and live in harmony. It's completely aligned with His Majesty King Comet when a dog has initiative And encouraging peaceful coexistence. For religious tolerance. It's who we are, as between. It's part of our DNA. Marina is a country with a very diverse population, Very special social fabric and like you. Indicated. We do have an indigenous Jewish society. But we also have those from other faiths as well living in Bahrain for many years. That's why it doesn't come as a surprise that we have the only synagogue in the region. So far, we have an indigenous society from the Jewish faith. That have taken active part and decision making with in Bahrain. Ambassador Hood Unknown wass, eh? Part of the Shura Council, which is the legislative branch that is appointed. We do have to an elected one and an appointed one on DH. She was appointed by his Majesty. Within that legislative branch and then became an ambassador. Here it comes to show how his Majesty appreciates all peoples off, trained, regardless ofthe They're ethnicities, regardless off their backgrounds on DH there, given an equal opportunity for decision making within the country, so I I think that it It brought us to where we are today the steps that were taken in Bahrain for the past decades. With the reform project with the delegations that used to go to Jerusalem and 2017 and onwards. It's the declaration that his Majesty At a sign which we call the behind declaration. And if I may, there is a very famous coat and that's where his Majesty has stated and I quote, ignorance is the enemy of peace and quote. In a way that nothing is left their lights. Um, we have and the Of course, is part of of this continuous drives to religious tolerance within biting. The country of Bahrain is a unitary parliamentary constitutional monarchy. A kingdom It's more than 1.5 million people, and it is in the Gulf, of course. But now with his piece of the people's weaken, see Bahrain being integrated into a much larger world of cooking, Mr Ambassador, I've learned to ask after kosher cooks in Bahrain, you already have a Jewish community. Malcolm and I have joked that they're not enough cushier cooks. And to keep up with the peace of the peoples that air possible coming forward. So what does this mean for the people of Bahrain to travel in the world into see themselves as part of a piece? Momenta man and not in a conflict. What does it mean for the Mr Ambassador, Help us understand it in the United States. While the establishment of diplomatic relations with the state of Israel opens up a new paradigm for when we look at the teams on the ground today. We're looking at Work being done within the security around the diplomatic aviation trade. We have Ah immediately seen a positive in fact. On the ground in Bahrain. Our speaker Ah, Her Excellency. Fauzia, they know put out a very positive statement As soon as the news was announced by the On DH again put out a very positive statement. Obviously when, when Bahrain and House the chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee that the same thing, and now I'm talking to the the appointed the elected And so it just reflects the Bahrainis willingness to move forward when it comes to the bilateral relations on the positivity around it, and the opportunities that might arise going forward. Unfortunately, not everything is positive in the reaction of the Arab world has been in certainly beyond it. But Iran and Turkey on Iran has long tried export terrorism to your country. How how has video impacted that and the fact that the two of them have been pretty aggressive in their reaction? I think that it's important for listeners, Tio realized how rain has for the past four decades been on the forefront of Iranian aggression. We have pushed back on such actions. And when I talk about the Israelis and the Iranians aggression in Bahrain, its multifaceted we talk about recruitment. Training on deployment off proxies. We talk about financing activities that threaten to maritime navigation. Uh, all of these factors we have witnessed first hand But I am very happy to state that we have with time managed to push back and expose those tactics and tools that the Iranian and Iranian regime has used. To undermine our security and behind way will continue to do so working with allies in the region and out of the region, like the United States. And way look at initiatives and coalitions in order to deter hostile activities in the region. Now, regardless off their origin today might fear on tomorrow it might be someone else. But collectively, we worked as a group to make sure that our people are safe. And that development continues as we move forward one more minute, Malcolm quickly If you have a question question, could you Could you tell us Perspectively? Who do you think would be next? And what country do you think will join the the E and Marine and this initiative? I think that this is the move had created a lot of momentum. People are starting to look at their relationships on a bilateral level. Bahrain did not abandon the Palestinians calls. It was very clear that what are foreign ministers stated. We still support the R R peace initiative. We still support two state solution for the Palestinians, but we also understand that there are bilateral relations. The Bahraini Israeli relationship. We're looking forward to it to be very successful and to prove as a model for others to move in a direction. That is similar to this one. We thank the ambassador from the Kingdom of Bahrain to the United States of America. Sheik Abdallah Ben Rashid Bin Abdullah Al Khalifa Malcolm Hoenlein Conference of Presidents I'm John Bachelor..

"Dot com for more details this is an element that could wipe the slate clean for low level marijuana offenders they say past charges and convictions have been a big stumbling block in moving forward in their lives news it's a Lisa summers has more on the city attorney's effort to throw out thousands of cases. because of a misdemeanor marijuana conviction thousands of otherwise law abiding San Diegans are being held back when it comes to getting a job housing or even volunteering at their children's schools marijuana convictions under obsolete laws should not stand in the way of anyone's future that's why the city's attorney's office is working with the Superior Court in California department of justice to identify those eligible for relief cases eligible for dismissal include convictions for possessions of twenty eight point five grams or less of marijuana and possession of eight grams or less of concentrated cannabis the city attorney's office has reviewed over five thousand misdemeanor infractions from two thousand nine through twenty eighteen now here's news a tether Myers with your micro climate forecasts I makes isn't in clouds on this Thursday temperatures continuing to cool down and not cooling trend will take us right through the end of the weekend low to mid seventies at the beaches today mid seventies for most of our inland valley communities on enough scattered sprinkles across the county that's what happened this morning looks like we could repeat that again as we get into Friday morning on am seven sixty I'm news it's heather Myers out cloudy and seventy three in power way breadwinner bulls next AM seven sixty talking breaking news about Russia you have to bring him to quit. it is a bright water will show a seven sixty started breaking news so do watch it all to watch all this morning all three hours of it in all its glory although the reveals the information the shakedown of Joseph McGuire the acting di and I. in the trump White House and you know it's funny to see an enemy funny ha ha funny I mean funny ironic funny it's funny you see the disrespect shown by people who have never served this country in any capacity except as a elective legislative weasels see the amount of disrespect shown to a man like Joseph McGuire they talk to this guy today who served his nation honorably for for many many years in the navy in the seals in in the position of of of a rather have been have rear admiral they treated this guy like he was he was Antonio brown but coming off of off of a bad game and it was disgusting and disgraceful and I'm not surprised because from the jump this morning I I started I was on the air on standby over newsmax for the entirety of the hearing and and we never they never recessed so I'm just basically sat there monitored like everybody else did but what was so amazing was when Adam Schiff comes out and starts the. proceedings with a maid op interpretation of what was said in the phone call and does it make that clear to people I thank you couldn't help but look at Adam Schiff and say what a jerk what a Jack a a great a Jack a this guy is. to come out and to read a dramatic interpretation I don't know if he's used to doing role playing with that box in west Hollywood you put you put on the the soiled white long Johns for ed Bach and dances around and they and they and they do some sort of an act out but watching him do this is the chairman of the house intelligence committee and this guy did a phony interpretation of the phone call between president trump and the president of the U. cranes Lansky this is Adam Schiff dramatic nonsense interpretation in which he doesn't say up front this is what I think it would have sounded like he makes it clear that he's just doing this he's free wheeling kind of like those crazy sweaty Friday night so that Bucko and so what happened on that call. Lynskey begins by ingratiating himself. and he tries to enlist the support of the president. expresses this interesting meeting with the president says his country wants to acquire more weapons from us to defend itself. and what is the president's response. well it reads like a classic organized crime shake down. shorn of its rambling character and then not so many words this is. the essence of what yes president communicates. we've been very good to your country very good no other country has done as much as we have but you know what I don't see much reciprocity here. I hear what you want I have a favor I want from you though. and I'm gonna say this only seven times so you better listen good. I want you to make up dirt on my political opponent understand lots of it. on their sin on that. I'm gonna put you in touch with people not just any people I'm gonna put you in touch with Attorney General United States my Attorney General bill Barr he's got the whole weight. of American law enforcement. behind him and I'm gonna put you in touch with Rudy you're gonna love him trust me. you know what I'm asking and so I'm only gonna say this a few more times in a few more ways. and by the way don't call me again I'll call you when you've done what I asked. this is. in some in character what the present was trying to indicate. with the president of Ukraine it would be funny if it wasn't such a graphic portrayal of the presence of of office. but as it does represent a real betrayal there's nothing the president says here. that is in America's interest after all. it is instead the most consequential form a tragedy. Ford forces us to confront the remedy the founders provided for such a flagrant abuse of office impeachment. so Peter says in data right okay. yeah I mean I just wonder if this is if this is how you take direction you intend Lou take direction and and and Garcetti and everybody else in the caucus in the for **** the **** is. inside the the California delegation how you take direction from from that box that's what I want to know when I bought the entirety of the of the hearing I was I was referencing and Buck constantly nobody will ask him about it nobody will I don't even know why Devin newness that look and be like you know catch your question you have anything you want to say about a Buck in the fact that he if he he basically murdered two people and is accused of overdosing eleven others in these are all men of color who are homosexual you have anything to say about that Adam Schiff because he's a huge benefactor of yours but they'll do it know it'll raise that question Adam Schiff is a hundred and fifty times more corrupt I guarantee it then Donald Trump this I guarantee it now here's the thing over in not over in the the rougher parts of the world the places like Pakistan Afghanistan you have these things called them the Mouche shura council's and what they are is the those the people that run the the operations that carry out the attacks on American forces what you're seeing when you see Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell and Ted Liu Maxine waters and Nancy Pelosi that is the impeachment shura council. they they're they're they're the operational heads of the coup in the United States and it's not lost on me that every single one of them is based in California isn't it shocking that the crew of people looking to end of the presidency of Donald Trump are all based in California taking their orders from the most progressive liberal weirdos in Hollywood and Silicon Valley are acting in concert with hot your best Sarah who was part of the cricket member who's part of the cooking deal with the I. one brothers with the servers that they never turned over to the FBI the game the crowd strike based in the Ukraine you all this stuff right all of this stuff is all connected back to California in California holds itself out as the as what the resistance movement. raise the resistance now now here's what's interesting if you look at what they have done. I'm in time again they played the exact same play against the White House and it's this it's very easy to understand what they will do is they will allege some weird thing. still the Aussie. trump tower meeting with that vessel it's guy now you've got a phone call some some a more face kind of a weird allegation in the hopes then that the trump administration over correct and make a mistake in terms of a process crime that they can then try to convert into impeachment here's what we know this person back neck drop died is a is a is a branding worshipers of Brandon disciple they're selling him as some heroic CIA guy who didn't listen to this phone call personally but overheard conversations in the stall in the men's room or or in the kitchen putting his ear up against somebody's door not to to listen to what people were saying but you know any first hand information and again when you say he's a Brandon acolyte he is somebody who worship at the altar of the communist John Brennan and is probably part of of that whole Cup all of people who've been looking to knock the president out of the presidency for for the better part of three years and have been unsuccessful in doing it. but one thing is for certain this is what they're gonna hang impeachment on the going to take it down to this one charge they're gonna voted out of the house and they're gonna try to impeach the president on this and what's gonna be interesting is seeing somebody like Mitt Romney was national security adviser when he was a campaign when he was a a nominee in twenty twelve Mitt Romney's Mitt Romney's national security adviser is on the board of the Ukraine company that Biden circuit was was a part of something that's really something to mit Romney's condemning condemning a president trump it Romney is unfit for office he should resign to see him leave. and Ben Sasse is now taken swings okay bad okay sassy sass that's great you can take twenty two you're not gonna get sixty six people for the president out of office because even if you are successful you get sixty six people for the president of office gonna get president Mike pence and you're not gonna get rid of him. so I get that Adam Schiff is walking around all you know. jade and ready and toss friend come may need to try to throw the president out of office but I got news for you Adam Schiff will be out of Congress before Donald Trump is out of the presidency I'm convinced of that because he's a guy with enough dusty corners and skeletons in his closet something I'll actually come out. the wrong person is gonna have the right information and he's going to have to answer some uncomfortable questions because if they want to get down to not crack in time what cracks of not. eight hundred seven sixty KFMB AM seven sixty talking breaking news Jim Travis got the update San Diego is chief of police is pledging to change how the department tests rate kids following backlash from a district attorney's office a report from voice of San Diego revealed San Diego police technicians we're testing only a single swab from the kids instead of the six.

"Destroying many of the ISIS headquarters Berwick's arms depots economic warehouses facilities that we we militarily were incredibly effective at a cost of one point it was averaging over thirteen million dollars a day and the problem is no one wants to spend that kind of money to deal with the human problem we know how to destroy we don't know how to create alternatives we don't know how to create whether it's helping nations rebuild our we didn't do a great job in Afghanistan or Iraq and you know what trying to figure out the human dimension of this problem how we are Steve Connecticut Lee but not when it comes to the human dimension and I think that is not where we will be most vulnerable for the foreseeable future in a post territory ISIS Ali is it matter who the leader is I mean as robin mentioned earlier al Baghdadi is re emerged on tape of exhorting his followers and claiming new provinces for the Islamic state if we get about Daddy is just somebody gonna take his place and it doesn't really matter who the C. E. O. is it any time or place I think when it comes to ISIS yes leadership matters because most of the number two people in ISIS were killed you know that the worst job you can do in isis was being the number two because you're being targeted by U. us almost immediately and and few months and you're out about a minute a rocky has you back or you know all you you can double Muslim took money you can go down the list everyone who was number two is gone so most of the people the leadership that the folks on ISIS knew about does not exist so about Daddy is important because the buyer is to about ninety as a Calif and he's gone a lot of people not gonna now who is that person that isis is going to appoint this is very unlike all kind of for example with the death of Osama bin laden did not effect the organization as much because a lot of the leaders of all Qaeda continue to exist until today the number two was a month so why her who is currently the leader of al Qaeda a second how did this is still a life of Omaha model must read his still alive you know those guys are members of the shura council of all kind of you know about how about fear was just killed recently in Syria last year I believe in it live so card to continue to have that you know of first to your leadership that is helping to develop the second tier leadership as we've seen with tons of bin laden who is married to the numbers two of a kind of today album to it too to the daughter of the number to a full kind of today about how much the most right out in ice is a situation is different and if there is no Calif and if there was no buy out towards an individual I think many of these set up some of his jihadis might go to form either their own thing or hi in some places a we start seeing in Yemen for example maybe joining back into all kind of so I think the death of Baghdad the L. will be more important than for example the death of or for some of bin laden and and its impact on all cried robin do you agree I suspect so are I do think that there's a broader issue that has emerged that we don't pay enough attention to and that is within the SUNY world there is this vacuum at the moment in years past you had now Sir is on that came out of Egypt or baathism that came out of Syria and Iraq that there isn't an idea that offers a direction for SUNY's who constitute eighty five percent of the world's more than one point three billion Muslims and that has by default left the likes of ISIS and al Qaeda and other extremist movements smaller but often is deadly out there as you know the only ones are that that offer an alternative the Arab world particularly has very little leadership in in Saudi Arabia the crown prince Mohammed bin someone is trying to create a leadership role for him in the kingdom in the Gulf and in the wider Arab world of course he is widely perceived as a as an an ambitious and in some ways aggressive leader whose watch a war against Yemen and is has been linked all publicly to the murder of Jamal Khashoggi the Saudi journalist to Richard and dismembered and the Saudi embassy in Istanbul so that are in the past it was the Shiites who were looking for leadership they were in places like Lebanon and elsewhere in the region the marginalized on represented sector of the Islamic world since the Iranian revolution the world's largest Shiite country sense are the creation of his ball and Levin and you've seen the Shiites mobilize in a way that they have created new leaders ideas organizations armed forces they give them a sense of direction in contrast the Sunnis have been groping for some place to walk in this you know we saw the Arab spring when the young were trying to throw off dictators but couldn't create an alternative and it's interesting that in Tunisia you saw the ferry first of all our pricing in two thousand eleven ousted a president who's been in power more than to get two decades in a mere thirty days and and yet it contributed one of the two largest communities to ISIS in the thousands and so that even though they ousted authoritarian rule there's a sense that that all the needs or the the human economic whatever ideological were not met even it after the uprising in I think so there's a much bigger phenomenon out there to deal with its not just whether isis or al Qaeda still exist whether Osama bin laden or his successor or ISIS Abu Barker by Daddy still are alive and functioning it's really what is the alternative idea that helps redirect the energy and the sense of hopelessness among a lot of Muslims in a sense if I understand you part of the source of continuing discontentment is the failure of so many of the states but even when there's a change in them it's not satisfying that need it's not scratching that itch you still have this yearning for something that people haven't found yet is that fair there is a yearning that they haven't found but also one of the the ironies of our democratic openings is that it allows people to vent in ways they weren't allowed to under autocratic rule and so in Tunisia which is now the most democratic of the twenty two or three Arab countries you you see our you know the attacks in Seuss and in Tunis of the recruitment successful recruitment of thousands to join ISIS whether it's in Libya or in Syria or Iraq and and there are genuine security issue still in little Tunisia which should trouble saw us all because it became the model for how you make a transition and and transitions and openings also allow those who are the fundamentalists of the militants did to gain voice and freedom of movement of freedom of speech as well so this is a real a real issue during the transition which I think the Arab world the Middle East in general is going to see play out for potentially decades to come you know I lied in past years I've been on the streets of Casablanca Algiers Tunis Cairo even dar es Salaam and Zanzibar and one thing that all those very different places have in common is that there's so many young men with nothing to do it always has struck me as bad news has come from these places at various times that's just a pile of nice dry tinder a lot of young guys with nothing to do and a government that's watching them all the time in some cases anyway is state failure yeah I mean if we go through this huge effort the both of you been talking about throughout the hour to defeat these networks is it going to be all for naught if states continue to fail their citizens what what you just described is basically a perfect description of a workshop a devil's workshop I mean yes absolutely when you have all these people who have no jobs have no hope have no future they are an easy target for somebody to recruit them for terrorist activities or for whatever in you know in the aftermath of the Arab spring Qaeda and Osama bin laden and and the general later the the sort of you have a movement understood something that we did not understand in the west understood that there is nothing called estate in these countries if there's no dictatorship if the on top so what is Libya without Qaddafi what is Iraq without Saddam eight so you know that the institutions that make a state in the west the civil institutions law and for the the the the non corrupt legislature legal system and law enforcement alleges the only things don't exist so that identity was the Iraqi identity or the Libyan identity or the Syrian identity is connected to the dictatorship on top of that dictatorship it is not there I think the society is going to separate into you know Nick got a sectarian nine live yeah we see tribal divisions between east and west of Iraq arrived she are up Sunni Kurds and so forth in in Syria hello wait and Sunnis and people from urban areas versus people from rural areas and everybody looks at the situation differently and I think I'll Qaeda you that this is a situation in the lot and just before the navy seals bullet took him out he gave instruction to start focusing locally built the relationship with these different elements in different countries and make them you know up ordering his people don't focus on America as much as try to prevent somebody else from filling the vacuum in places like Yemen ordered Libya or in any other off the Arab spring to places because whoever is gonna fill the vacuum is going to be the new agent for the Americans and this is what created a lot of chaos so I think there is a significant failure in the Arab world and the Muslim world the state failure well a fascinating and worry in conversation thanks a lot to you both robin Wright always a pleasure thank you ray Ali su fun good to talk to you thank you you've been listening to world affairs the weekly broadcast of the world affairs council ours.

"There was a group called unsnarl Islam, and, in fact, one of their leaders was someone who I knew quite well from my hometown also from Hobart, and who was later killed in the cruise missiles that in the I actually American strike against Iraq. It wasn't against them. Hussein actually it was against that particular. Unser survived that attack. And of course, the Jihadist started to congregate there because they knew that the Americans what about to invade so they need to be in a prime position. Is that a call then made his way to the during the chaos of the American invasion? And that's basically when he set up with cells up, they Jordanian Palestinian and Kurdish militants. They set up together, the first cell that was called D'amoto Hagia jihad a group of monotheism and jihad. Indeed. So at Hayes with jihad was the first sell, it was organized there, but their greatest coup when some Botha's intelligence officers who wear having Salafists sympathies, joined up with them. Now, this is one of America's biggest mistakes that it basically sacked any member of the bath party from both civil service and the military. So if you had been a member of the bath party, you no longer had a career you. No longer had an income, you had to do something to make money and probably we're going to do that by joining criminal organization like Al Qaeda. In fact, the American administration of Iraq sack the entire army the whole add up the army was sacked dismissed including the Republican guards, you know, people who you could have relied on to pacify the country. But because of course basically the she I was saying, we would have be better. If we don't do it. But then that was a mistake. The Americans could have set to this year. Rockies shut up sit down, we're on the show, not you. And unfortunately, the Americans did not have the guts to say that instead, they obeyed that demand, which was not exactly a sheer rock, demand. It was actually a clandestine Iranian demand. So, so what happened is those buses from the Baath party, the intelligence, Republican guards, they went and joins the Kali because some of them. Already having some service jihadi sympathies. So they went to join him, and they give him the most important piece of intelligence that enabled him to become the monster. He became what's that? What did they tell him? We know where to find a big pile of cash money. Exactly Zorko in needed money. Yes. And where was this big pile of cash, this big file of cash happen to be with one of them? Hussein's son, also Saddam Hussein. So plays them Hussein along with the then vice president as duty they went to the central Bank and era and they emptied north of six hundred six hundred and sixty million dollars in cash into, you know, big truck, and they took it. This is a stunning. This is something out of a Hollywood movie. You're saying that the Americans invade immediately one of Saddam Hussein's sons goes to the central Bank and just unloads a tremendous amount of cash into a truck and drives off absolutely cash gold bars. So they took everything into the in this truck can basically threw off and that. Just as the Americans wear on the gates of that self. So it was ninth of April. That's a day, twin central Bank was raided by them Hussein. And Brahima is that the jury the Arab VP. So the idea is that this money will be distributed among buses cells, in order to carry out the counter-offensive a Viet Cong kind of offensive that was Saddam. Hussein's sons idea, but our co we had another idea with what he could use the money for indie then, so basically with the knowledge he obtained from those Botha's intelligence, and the Republican Guard officers who defected to him. He located. Call size of them has an unconverted whatever remained which was roughly three hundred and forty million dollars. And what, what would he have done with that money? Oh, then's that a call. We basically ino embarked on one of the most impressive emanate exercise in. History emanate a merger an acquisition. I see. So he was he was a capitalist. And then what do you mean by that? He merged with home and acquired what? Okay, so imagine they know are up and they insurgency, slush terrorism seen in add up after the American invasion. Imagine it's like the chaos of the dot com bubble. They know that chaos of the Silicon Valley, ten thousand startups everywhere. So suddenly know those who have cash can swallow those who don't see. So we're, we're in. We're in an environment now where there are lots of disparate unconnected cells of people pissed off at the Americans and wanting to kill their Kobe. Bribes them pays them off brings them into his big tent, and you have Al Qaeda in Iraq. So it was a process that lasted more than a year and a half from may two thousand and three in all the way until November of two thousand and four. And if I'm not mistaken. In fact. Iraq was rather peaceful during this time, Lulling the Americans into a sense that we've got this, this is going to be fine, and then suddenly absolutely you see that coffee should have been given the title of C E O of the. So what what was are always aim than now. 'cause you originally said he wanted to rally Jordanians and Palestinians against Israel. What's his new aim? He's now in charge of a huge number of jihadists in Iraq. They're, they're attacking America planting. I e D's along roadsides blowing up armored vehicles popping up here and they're shooting taking potshots at soldiers while at the same time kidnapping other Iraqis killing people participating in the cleansing of neighborhoods. Participating in that whole great bloodshed that was going on. What's his alternate goal his to ultimate goals? Well, they were ultimately goals as far as calculus, consent. The first one was to frustrate. The establishment of a Shia dominated government anatomy, that was that was one of their fears that the Shia the majority would dominate the government. What was the second goal the second goal was to expel the Americans artifacts and the third, and the third was to establish a Sunni Islamic state in adult? Will that's funny because that reminds me of certain institution that was established about ten years later in Iraq called ISIS? Of course. We'll get there in the end actually joined the cry in two thousand and five officially gave the bay Osama bin Laden because he wanted this legitimacy that comes with his connection to allied, that's a festive, and he called his group, then Attock and the next year he established something cooled, the shura council of the mujahideen, or the United council of them, when Johnny dean, but in a film that was released by as a cloudy and his people six weeks before he died. He was meeting with his shura council. He was meeting with his council of advisors under commanders also, and in that meeting, he was uh I what about the product for the Slavic state. What about the project for Islamic state, and he said, God willing, this would be concluded within a year? So actually that film in a, you can see him his face talking announcing that question and saying that the project for the Islamic state in Iraq is going to conclude within the year. They will have an Islamic state now talk. Of course, he died six weeks after that. But less than a year later, his successes announced, there's Lomb state. Now, let's talk about the consequences on the Arab street to Zarco his reign of terror, because actually in the end call we alienated himself from Osama bin Laden, even Osama bin Laden thought that are. Choas methods were too cruel that he was behaving in too much indiscriminate killing, and that it was turning era ABS against Jihadism. They were realizing that scratched the surface, and these people are just say district psychopaths was that your experience as an Arab at the time were, you aware that maybe Arabs were thinking we're seeing the beheadings, we're seeing the, the sheer number of their fellow Muslim being killed as collateral damage or as targets and thinking what the hell we don't want anything to do with this. No, I was telling something even more interesting than just what the upstart on the street. What out by the members thought themselves today think, well, now the car, the members I used to mingle with a no inbetween and inside Arabia. And in the rest of the Gulf, you can see within the ranks of ACI, the immediate division, based on class rather than on ideology, for this is back to what we were talking about in episode to the board. Joie. Recruits, and the working class recruits, even worse, the criminal classrooms criminal class refer. They loves our of course they thought, oh my God. He's our, he's our hero, because they're collie is graduate of Jordanian prisons, I in his previous life. He was a thug. He was a sugg- street criminal and later became a Jehad. So he brought with him that say, does them and psychopathic tendencies in to the jihad he embraced. And that is why you can see considerable brutality and you can see the gangster in him emerging in the way he behaved with his opponents with his followers. He was a sweet gentle, charismatic and easy to deal with Don Corleone. If you're on his good side, he's your grandfather, you on his bad side. He takes you to the mattresses. I. Absolutely. I mean, after all, basically, how did he in the manage to co worse his way into? Being the largest leader of a largest insurgency group and knock because he made people offer they can't refuse so, you know, and that's exactly what happened here. So the Boers you were born. Upset because they just thought this is this is uncivilized. I mean they're just a bit more more more sensitive souls. Well, the voted you Z Jihadist they felt they were closer to the mentality of the average individual. In the outer bold, they understand that too much brutality, will put off people, you need to behave in a more magnanimous way, if you want to signal to the people that you are ready to roll the problem with the criminal classes, within the Jihadist movement is that they lacked magnanimity, the phrase, the word magnanimity is not present in their dictionary, and that was their downfall so inside. Al-qaeda the bourgeois jihadists were growing rather disillusioned with Sarko methods, and with the brutality that the criminal class with an Qaeda was manifesting. This is interesting because. Because as I said before, at the same time as all this is going on in Iraq inside Saudi Arabia. There's a violent g had his campaign going on trying to overthrow the government increasingly resorting to more and more brutal methods, including kidnapping and killing people and the Saudi government doing a very good job of highlighting the brutality, turning the people against jihadists, creating within al-qaeda this, this dialogue. Have we gone too far? Are we losing hearts and minds now? That's interesting. Of course, because, America, we're always being told was losing hearts and minds in Iraq and elsewhere, at the same time Al Qaeda is losing hearts and minds. So did the Iraq war and America's bungling of that? Did it turn you against the American global order? What's called the Atlanticist world order, that world order underpinned by American military power keeping markets open advocating for global trade for greater liberal? Eliza. Did it turn you against that as a as a global ideal? Ironically, my face in the nation states, and the global order was only reinforced actually after their core. Ironically. And the reason for this is because I saw what chaos can do to nation state once the leadership is decapitated. And I'm talking about yes, I deeply loathed American foreign policy at the time but I did not. I did not return to being anti-american why. Because I always close my eyes, and I was thinking, if America disappeared today, what would happen to the world and the reality is, we will have China on Russia. Terrorizing the rest of the world into submission while Europe is cowering in accordance because America's new mold. It's not that anymore. So America became from me, the necessary evil during their awkward now. Now, it is unnecessary nuisance. Yes, the importance of the nation state, I can understand how that might have been reinforced in you, as an ideal during the Iraq war, as you watched Iraq descend into chaos. Of course, only a few years later, the so-called Arab spring would begin when the destabilization of nation states across the Arab world, rocked that world and the consequences of which were still living with, and that brings us up to the next episode where we'll talk about the herbs spring. Specifically the way it has played out in Yemen where they begin to regroup. They begin to think what went wrong, why have we been so thoroughly? Defeated why have we lost Aarab hearts and minds and in Yemen? They're going to form in a way, Al Qaeda three point zero. I you had the Qaeda that launched nine eleven then. You had the brutal bloodletting al-qaeda of Zarko e and that era and then in Yemen, Al Qaeda, three point zero which would be much more sensitive to the local, population's needs, and their ideas much much more shrewd in their dealings.
