NPR news NAP Elice, The West Bank, You're listening to all things considered from NPR news. Over the past week. Our colleagues over at the indicator have been reporting on the historic drought in the West. They spent some time with ranchers on the front lines, including the claim with River Basin. Sally, her ships and Ashley A'Hearn report over in the Climate River Basin that's kind of south central Oregon along the California border. There were record breaking high temperatures. And then this huge mega fire started the bootleg fire, and it ended up burning more than 400,000 acres. And in the Klamath, There are a lot of different stakeholders. Or maybe we should think about them. Like shareholders of the water and that basin, right? Yeah, totally. You've got several tribes fighting to keep enough water in the lake and river fish and then add to that. Of course, you've got ranching and farming happening, which is a More than $200 million industry in that watershed, So in the spring irrigation water for farmers was shut off for a whole season. That's the first time this has happened since the system was built back in 19. Oh, seven, and that's when things got interesting. Yes, so back in early spring, there were two local guys who bought a small piece of land right where there's a key irrigation gate. And this Cape basically controls the central artery for water for Klamath farmers and ranchers and these guys were threatening to force the head gate back open. They invited Amon Bundy and his group People's Rights Oregon to come and help them with the protest. And just in case you need a reminder. He's the guy who led the occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge a few years ago. When I heard about that, Of course, I wanted to talk to somebody on the ground, So I called up Becky Hatfield hide. She's a cattle rancher in the climate, and she's been following the water issues there for a long time. Right now. For the record, she has zero water. It's like You're sitting there in the ER. Dying. So Becky and the other ranchers, tribal members, everyone stressed out because of heat, the smoke the water shortage and then the Bundys. Add fuel to the fire. Exactly. So that was Bundy affiliated guys that bought the land. They set up this red and white. It looks like a circus tent and they started holding meetings about water rights, and it was a lot of saber rattling, You know, But folks were really worried who are following that that things could go sideways at a moment's notice Because there's some history there. Back in 2000 and one, the federal government shut the same head gate to keep enough water in the lake for endangered fish. And local protesters forced the gates back open multiple times. Things got violent. Then there was a lot of anti tribal racism. Yeah, and so Becky's watching this happen and she's you know someone who's cared about water issues there for a long time, and she said it just made her sick when she heard the Bundys were getting involved. I see them as extremists. And frankly, real. Ranchers and farmers have had zero time this year to be sitting around at a head gate. Um, protesting something, she says The protests just fizzled out. And so then, a few weeks ago, the tent was quietly taken down. And so Becky's big concern now is that we make this Groundhog Day scenario where we see this thing play out year after year. Low snowpack in the spring hot, wildfire ridden summers.

The israeli left has consistently failed to understand the uncompromising nature of netanyahu's project despite growing evidence when i called charles in jerusalem a few days after a ceasefire between israel and hamas was announced. I began by asking him what had struck him passionately in the past two weeks. To tell you the truth sweat Rarely surprised me was getting phone. Calls from people in france including jewelries. Think what happened. Everything was quiet for years now. Suddenly everything blows up lays now a new war and what happened with palestinian. Ever seen what quiet. Nothing quite.

Netanyahu will for ten years had as his policies to make military agreement cease-fires under the conditions that he would let Qatar bring shoot cases of cash. Do gaza do finances hamas and on the other side in the west bank. No political agreement. Everything is stuck and Settlements are growing within sixty percent of the west bank so everything was just growing growing growing until it grew up so in a sense. You're saying it wasn't a surprise. Did it feel like a repetition or does it feel different this time. Listen i was expecting at some point in time this would happen. I was surprised with the rapidity with which It it became a full scale war between the gaza and israel. This when we're very fast. So this should worry. I believe the policy makers in israel ended order abroad. It dallas sense of deja. Netanyahu has been prime minister since two thousand nine and so i know you've studied the israeli right as part of part of your long career as a journalist. Is it possible to say what netanyahu's endgame is is that clear. Yes preventing the creation of a palestinian State Wrong side israel and to stay in power so vilo survival political survival netanyahu and his old firmly believe the only he has the ability to protect and save the jewish people in israel and abroad so he staying power is of the utmost importance. This is why also he believes and these fighting role judiciary processes that brings him to court for corruption. And so. how do you read. Netanyahu's personal position. Today after the last the events of the last ten days given what you've said about the legal charges that he's facing and the fact that he hasn't been able to form a government for the fourth time. First of all the round of violence between israel and hamas for the cinci came back to power in two thousand nine.

Blinken Heads to Middle East to Build on Israel-Hamas Cease-Fire
"The Middle East. President Biden asked him to go, but only after a ceasefire was in place, ending the latest military conflict between Israel and the Palestinian militant group Hamas. NPR's Michele Kelemen reports. Secretary, Blinken has been cautious about jumping into Middle East diplomacy. He started quietly with phone calls while he was on a trip to the Arctic. Plans for a visit came together only after Israel and Hamas agreed to stop fighting. And White House press secretary Jen Psaki is making clear that Blinken has narrow goals for this trip to Israel, the West Bank, Egypt and Jordan, ensuring that we're creating conditions with our partners in the region. For a sustained ceasefire and also discussing the path toward on rebuilding Gaza. Something that there's a great deal of interest in support and the international community on and they're great needs on the ground.

Secretary Blinken says Israel has the right to defend itself against rocket fire from Gaza. But he also says he wants to make sure Israelis and Palestinians have equal measures of security, peace and dignity. El Guindi says.

"Into the West Bank. In which case Alright, there there. It's slightly more crowded now. That was before, but they're there. There's enough room for everybody. But if that's the case, it's a completely landlocked country. Um What would the industry's be That would be able to be Engaged in so that that New Palestine could actually survive more than six months as a country, or would you be birthing something that was a failed state from the first day? Because I can't think of any industry they currently have or have had at all in the last half century. I would say. Yeah, Gosh, we cannot. We could expand our orange groves. Anything anything at all? You know we are We actually make those really nice sand sculptures. Now we'll use poem Eric Sand so that the whole firm up and be together We could ship them all over the world for big bucks. Big, big bucks. I'm figuring like $200,000 percent sculpture. Even the small ones. On and that'll that'll pose a good state because we do have a whole lot of sand here. I mean, seriously, what would be The industry that would sustain it. I can't think of any so then what happens? What happens after that is The other Arab states. Or the U. N. Or the U. S will be told. You have to financially support this failed state that we have just created. Oh, great. Yeah, That's a financial burden I want, don't you? Nothing. I want more than a failed state as a client because it's not like we sent a enough money to Washington already. I think we should spend even more and make sure that the Palestinians Have life experiences. That a rich and rewarding And the don't please them at a disadvantage in any fashion. There's no plan for this. There's just this kind of soft. A story about the only solution we have is a two state solution. No, actually, there are other solutions going back as far as Jimmy Carter. And I talked about this on Friday. Me. Jimmy Carter had them up at Camp David. And a relative who was there for that. Was secret Service of the time. They offered and this is not secret information, but he could verify it. They offered terrified 98% 99% of everything. Arafat, it asked for. But Arafat would not change the Palestinian charter. Which calls for the destruction of Israel. And the killing of Jews or sending them all into the sea. Well, gosh, I don't know why the Israelis didn't sign on that one. That sounds pretty sweet to me. That's what we're talking about here. So the solution is To stop trying to attack Israel. Because you keep costing lives and you're not doing anything to improve the lives of those people who live around you. To spend millions of dollars worth of concrete. And building material steel it Senator center to build tunnels deep beneath the ground so you could hide troop movements. And and munitions in bombs. Rather than moving them on surface streets instead of actually building nice buildings that could house anything. Massage pros. I don't care put in strip joints. What do you want to do? But no you had to spend on basically building a way in which you might be able to attack Israel sneakily. Well, you keep doing that kind of stuff. Nothing's going to change. Nothing. For 10.

I mean, they could say whatever they want, but what's the reality? Well, The reality is both sides are trying to sell this as a victory to their own people who have suffered tremendously. Under the last 11 days in Gaza, Hamas held a rally in the middle of the night on the street, where the most devastating Israeli strikes took place where whole extended families were killed. Hamas leader said. This is one of our biggest victories ever. Thank you citizens. You are our swords for Jerusalem.

"Israelis confronted that question when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised to annex parts of the territory this summer, NPR's Daniel Estrin reports on the debate. Israel has occupied the West Bank for 53 years and Palestinians there don't have the privileges and rights that they're Israeli neighbors have in settlements guarded by the military. Most Israelis say it's wrong to compare this to apartheid to find by international conventions as one racial group dominating another, But I drove through the West Bank with one Israeli who's changed his mind. Look here you see way have here. Great view of the apartheid you have Ah, rolled from the But we're on it this year old for Jews and underneath us now is the road for Palestinians that connects Hubler and Qalqilya. In a tunnel underneath us now here, that's prominent Israeli human rights lawyer Mikhail's Fard. There's no law making this an Israeli only road, but it's designed to skirt Palestinian villages. He says that separation is a hallmark of apartheid way make our way to the village of are a Brahma Dean. Israeli officers have come here and asked Villagers to pack up and leave. Israeli lawyer thinks Israel wants the land to expand the nearby settlement. Palestinian village leader Kassab Shore I'm woman to woman come here and promise us money and land somewhere else. There is the pressure on people here to try to get us to leave. He hands me the permit paper. He has to show Israeli guards whenever he comes and goes. Israeli settlers don't need these permits, but they're not allowed into many Palestinian areas, either. Most Israelis believe these control measures are not Racists, therefore, security after years of Palestinian attacks The human rights lawyers. Fard says it reminds him of the past laws for blacks under South Africa's old apartheid regime. I do not deny that much of the things that Israel is doing. Is motivated by security considerations, but the policy of separation The multi layered practices and policies which deny Palestinians development. The drive to forcibly remove small Hamlets of Palestinians from their locations. All of these have nothing to do with security. The debate shifted this year when Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to a next some of the West Bank into Israel. Without giving Palestinians their voting rights in Israel. I got some Israelis reconsidering the apartheid question. One is Benjamin Paul Ground. He's originally from South Africa and covered apartheid. There as a journalist, he used to reject the comparison. Once you're next, so And you then have people subject to your control. You don't have a say in their lives That's apartheid. Israel has now shelved annexation plans but has not ruled it out for the future Pull grown, is still wary of the word apartheid because of the unique stigma carries internationally, potentially singling out Israel from other countries rights abuses. Most Israelis consider the apartheid comparison. Unfair. I have no means of machine is our father's day, Netanyahu's representative and government of Eatem solemn railed against Arab lawmakers in the parliament debate. How dare you Call it Apartheid travel where you want? What Jews going to your villages? If they do go by mistake, God forbid, we have to rescue them with Army force. Israeli political science professor of her home disconcerted. The comparison to apartheid is nonsense. We all work with our ABS I have are of students and have our could leagues. He's mostly talking about the fifth of Israel's population who are Arab citizens with Israeli voting rights. Palestinians in the West Bank are different. They can't enter Israel without permission. They're separated by a cement wall on high tech fences. Diskant blames most of this on the Palestinians, but they think what we have is an outcome off circumstances most of them caused by Arab terrorism. And basic ob, refusing to reach any kind of reasonable agreement that will establish that the end of the road the Palestinian state back at the Palestinian village village leader consumption or doesn't use the term apartheid much he uses other words of a woman that knowledge fever where about an insurgent Subject. It'll look a body in the man who feel like you live in jail. Your whole life is dependent on a piece of paper from the Israeli occupation. Whatever apartheid means to the world.

It's got this cool way to sort by topics you get to click on these gorgeous covers all to find the best books from 2020. Well, one of my favorite books on that list was actually written for kids ages, 10 and up. It's called Everything Sad is Untrue. By Daniel Neri. And it hooks you right from the opening line. All Persians are liars, and lying is a sin. This book takes you on a journey through myth, Youth and culture clash as the main character and his family flee from Iran. Oklahoma. It's a novelistic take on the author's own life, and his mother emerges as the true hero of this story. I spoke with him earlier this year and asked what kept her going on their journey. This whole book doesn't happen If my mother doesn't give up everything in the world, her medical practice her very high social standing her marriage, her family her home her Home country. My mother converted to Christianity because that is her belief. It was very clearly not a cultural agreement. It was something for which all of it Woz relinquished a life being very well to do in Iran becomes a life of abject poverty and abuse, and she will tell you she would do it all over again. To that end, the book even says when you look at her, you have to say, Wow, this person is completely unhinged and crazy or There is something that she is deeply and sincerely valued above all this, and that is her faith. The story moves back and forth through time. And at 1.9 Harry writes that quote Patchwork memory is the shame of a refugee. When we look at family histories, we often use metaphors of the family line or the family tree, and what that really implies, is the collective effort of keeping family tradition and family memories.

"Of the West Bank that drove the varieties to say stop the annexation and will normalize and trump was smart enough to get behind that. So we had that breakthrough. It wasn't a breakthrough. The peace these countries. We're not at war with Israel, and it didn't help. Solved the Israeli Palestinian problem, but it at least moves the Arabs towards more normal relations with this well, and that's a good thing. Good thing for Israel and a good thing for the United States. What about the Saudis? Big question? Everyone's been saying, Boy, If you could get the Saudis to normalize relations, that would be a huge deal. Is there any realistic prospect of that? Because as we know, the Saudis, I think felt that President Trump was very much there, friend. Yes, I do think it's possible. It's certainly worth exploring. And I would expect president but do some, uh, Saudi normalization with Israel would be the crown jewel of the whole normalization process because of its its immense importance in the Arab and Muslim world. But I think the Saudis are a little more reluctant than the Moratti's have more at stake on the Palestinian issue. But more importantly, I think haven't been so mother proud. Prince is in very bad odor in Washington, particularly with Democrats, but not only Also Republicans, particularly for his involvement in the murder of that Saudi journalist and a Surgi but also for his conduct of the war in Yemen, which is created a huge humanitarian crisis.

Land still yields laughter and hopes for Mawr next harvest. Tom Bateman reporting from the occupied West Bank. Like no other modern endeavor. The space program inspires all mankind by pushing the edge of the possible at least when it works it does. The latest mishap involves a NASA space probe, which successfully collected rock fragments. From the asteroid Bennu early this week, but is now at risk of losing its consignment. Sarah's Rex Mission team say they're victims of their own success with excess rock fragments having wedged open the collector lid. Leaving particles free to drift into space. Professor Sarah Russell is a member of the signs Team of NASA's A Sarah Rex mission shall be part of the team studying the samples from the asteroid Bennu When it returns in 2023. She worked at London's Natural History Museum, so Has the collector lid now being closed? The lid is still wedged open, and there's not much that can be done about it. Except now the job is to try to get the sampling container safely into the capsule that will eventually bring it back to Earth. So once it's in the capsule, then it will be safe and all the lovely bits of asteroid will be contained. Within it for us to be able to look at when it arrives back on Earth. There will be something for you to look at when it comes back. What in a couple of years time on, But what will you be looking for? Well, so we think that asteroids like Bennu date from the very earliest times in solar system's history. And so they can really tell us what was around before the planets existed. What the environment was like, how long ago this planet's forms so they can tell us something about our own origins. And we're hoping that this assassin droid also contains carbon and water. We think asteroids like this may have Hit the earlier some provided these ingredients for life to flourish. Quite a fine line, isn't it between success and failure on a mission like this, isn't it the chances For things going wrong a pretty high Yeah, I mean, most space missions are fairly risky, but I think that's what makes it worthwhile, right? I mean, that's that's so That's why we do it. And that's why it hasn't been done before. Because it's not an easy thing to do at all. It's a very challenging thing. But I've got a massive confidence in the mission team that it's going to. They're going to do everything they can to make it a success. Things do go wrong with missions and, for instance, is the whole history of Mars missions that haven't gone too well. Absolutely so. Mars is a very challenging target for space missions. And, yeah, you're right. That's being being a quite a history of mission failure on DH course This could be really devastating for the scientists working on it. You, Khun! Spend a decade or more of your life focused on one particular mission on then you're either you know, euphoric or completely distraught of its successful or fails, and you went through that range of emotions. I think with the of the Beagle two mission Yes. So that was quite a while ago. Now? Yeah, in the in the early two thousand's, But yeah, of course. That was one of the ones that didn't go quite as planned on DH. Yeah, Of course. It was devastating for everybody who Had put all of their hearts and souls into the mission that didn't bear fruit, but that, you know, even missions like that. That didn't work.

"No sirens I mean the whole thing just gets more and more ridiculous as it goes forward and as as we shift over into the discussion about the deal of the century or the lie of the century. And how this all connects in my opinion. The idea that they're doing this to create continue to create the justification to be able to pretend that the Palestinians are the ones who don't want peace even though this deal has nothing to do with peace. This is a deal that basically rights into law the illegal occupation of Palestine. It's it's writing into law the apartheid state. That's what this is so there's no peace doesn't even play into this but therefore right right meanwhile as you can see here. Israel has escalated a trade war with the Palestinians by guess what stopping their agricultural exports through Jordan. Are this this is what's happening right this even in this new supposed. Peace deal right. You've got the Palestinians who still are going to have to live under the control of Israel. They're not author state despite all the lies and the nonsense they have to live inside Israel. They don't have access to their own ports. They don't have any borders the other nations they don't have any arms or defend themselves. Selves Tabasco State is their concentration camps. Essentially just like they are now there are people are going to use that hot button term because people are going to lose their minds but the reality is that we're talking about but they've always been doing the Israeli government right now is stopping their their their exports agriculture reports from Jordan. Why because it benefits them because they have that control to be able to exert pressure on them if and when they want to because they have no control of their own? And that's most to change when you give Israel more power. I mean really think about how ridiculous that is but this is what they want you to think things like this will suddenly disappear. The moment that that they have more power I it's it's staggering but people actually go along with this stuff in regard to the same thing that lie of the century as the tweet says remember how trump open Kushner insisted. The Arab world was behind the so-called yield century of also. Pointed this out already but nothing could be further from the truth as Kuwait and the Arab League lead the charge horrors in throwing the plan and the dust bin. So ask yourself whether it's trump supporters or people who believe this or anybody. Was He lying to you when they said this oversee just incompetent completely ill-informed or lied to by his advisors. There's probably a few things that could be the bottom line. Is You rely too again history. They stand up and say that everybody Baxter's and everybody wants this because that's what they were trying to force into your perception. The reality is nobody supports it. You know why because it's illegal bill because it's wrong even the just you could go off on this forever. The reasons for why it's wrong we've done in the past shows but just recognize that even the people they pretend supported the invited to the meaning to announce it our right now rejecting it but we're also being called racist for even pointing it out. Think about that in addition to that the US envoys now warning that they could pull their support if Israel unilaterally start starts drawing maps for the West Bank annexation nations rather as they do that. Because they're doing right now right then yahoos getting pressured by everybody else for being basically tricked or screwed over. Oh we're going to end all the West Bank and take all these things things and then they kind of just said Whoa. Don't do it yet because you're GONNA make us look bad. That's kind of how that went. Please don't do that. I mean as ridiculous that it's something that's flagrantly illegal that we all know it was illegal even though it's written into the stupid deal but if he wants to do it even before before he gets elected like right now and the Washington was clearly saying well. Woe don't do it yet right. Well now they're saying look. We're we might even pull back if you start to ask your drawing maps to annex more of the West Bank and it even goes to the point to where where they were forced to say. WHOA sorry Israel? We're not threaten you or anything we're just asking for patients. That's all I think about that. Think about what that shows as you you can stand up as an envoy as a diplomat and say hey you might lose support if you do this thing. That's not agreed to and that that is against the law that seems pretty straightforward. This is a threat. Doesn't sound like anything but just a basic statement of fact but but how dare they even go against what they WANNA do right so he has steph apologize. WHOA WHOA? We're not threatened Israel. We're sorry we're just asking for patients does that not reveal the dynamic between the US government and Israeli government. That's why you get them saying. Please don't do it yet. As opposed to. You can't do it yet. You have to see the power structure structure here are. US ambassador standing up and apologizing for stating a fact because it goes against what the Israeli government wants to do. Pretty alarming. I would say in addition with everything else that we're already showing you but this is what's ridiculous in addition to the the Palestinian discussion Russian. And what's happening with agriculture. That this continues the kind of acts that are I mean I mean just reprehensible this is even from the Israeli media. The idea of troops weren't at risk but they shot a Palestinian boy in the head anyway. Anyway that's not new. I mean I've reported on at least four or five of instances of this exact same thing I report on the one where the child was standing ending with his arms in the air and got shot by the fence just because he was there right. I mean this this is ongoing but now even the Israeli press is pointing out that they just are killing children brin right I mean this is this. This cannot be ignored but it will be it will be by the people that don't WanNa react to admit what's always been happening there. But how is this not discussed. Why is this allowed? Imagine if this was in Iran we would never hear the end of it. But of course when we're we're talking about Israel well that's that's not you know we won't talk about that why because they get special treatment as we've always pointed out to kill children it was out of nowhere. Shoot them because you feel like it is a pretty clear. There's a pretty clear pattern there from the US government from the Israeli government. Being involved. And I say the US because they're well well aware of it as they continue to veto things in the United Nations. That point things like that out you complicit if you do something like that but it's the Palestinians did the bad guys. Don't forget that right because all the evidence that is there that you can see right. Obviously not the reality of what we're pointing to is overwhelming the overflowing amount of information. That could be day day in day out showing what they continue to do arresting children's shooting golden bomb restricting electricity restricting fishing zones restricting their water. I mean these are mostly civilians mostly children. But they don't care and of course it all ties back to Iran right because as we know Palestinians earn ronin proxy according to Israel which which again as I pointed out the other day should make you question why they even need justification to bomb loss right because they'll bomb Iran and Syria whenever they want they'll just bomb Syria because Iran's there so if Iran's John's also in Palestine why do they need to make a justification right think about that well because they recognize that. It's hard to see the anything different when you've got a group that's clearly an open air prison. That can't leave. And you're just continuing to bomb them for no reason they after manufactured rockets so one they always look like they're in defense and to there's some kind of justification vacation for the wildly disproportionate response. That happens every single time but recognize how disjointed that is where one side they can do no reasoning the other side. Will they have a rocket every single time. That's an open field. GAAS no damage every time but this is going well past will pass the idea of just Iran or just Israel Israel or Syria or just Yemen. Just anywhere else. They pretend Rana's proxies well now the. US is framing Afghanistan Shiites as immediate threats. It's did I not tell you this was coming. I told I mean this. This is one of the longest out I I said this will not too long ago but long enough said this is coming after the Afghanistan papers exposed all their horrid lies decades and decades of lies multiple presidencies continuing the same illusion. Asian showing you that there's goes well beyond whatever fake president you think is in place. Well now we have to make up some reasoning for while we're going to be there since we got exposed. Well it's because Iran Ron bad guy. Didn't you know Iran's always been there. That's what they're saying now and now it's not just around but it's the Shiite militias right has pointed out if you're a Shiite today you're you're a bad guy but don't let but don't let that kind of cross the idea that Mike pompeo is championing championing press for religious freedom around the world right as he'd marches around the world pretending to fight for religious freedom. He is actively waging an ideological war against Shiites because he's of disgusting hypocrites that's the point. US frames Afghan Shiite militias Alicia as an immediate threat and this was February seventh. This was put out then yourself two days later after they stand up and make a huge statement about Afghan Shiites are now immediate threat to us. Soldiers die. That's just coincidence. Though right because we told you they were a big threat. We knew it was coming and it happened. We told you so right or these are just two people that got killed in Iran attacked. And we're just continuing to find new places to pretend they died right possible. Look this is another one of these insider attacks which is really embarrassing for these people because what that. I haven't actually talked about this yet but I've been reading about it. The idea that we're talking about the basically Taliban insiders that infiltrate their military so this means this was a person that had been actively working inside the base of the US soldiers and and then one day just woke up and attacked or whatever just attack at a nowhere. It's been happening all through Afghanistan because we're talking about counterinsurgency here right. People don't want them. They're just like you don't want them in Iraq or they don't want them in Syria. They don't want them anywhere. They're not allowed to be but they're still doing it anyway. So now these people are forcing their way in and bombing within the basis and it's been kept pretty catastrophic traffic. Actually but this is as I say as I've seen the first incidence of US soldiers dying but can we not just reflect on that two days later after they say that these exact exact Shiite Moore rather than Afghan Shiite militias are an immediate threat that we have an attack and two soldiers die. How much you WANNA bet? This is going to be laid at the feet of Iran where this is going as his throughout the US occupation of Afghanistan one of the ongoing examples of violent persecution of religious minorities. Ladies was has raw Harris Afghanistan's Shiite population after doing little about this the US in Afghanistan are now looking to reframe the Shiites and in particular this one specific Shiite militia and its immediate threat to national security immediate. Only as of now. Because nothing's changed right suddenly. Suddenly this group. That's doing the same thing they been doing for a long time now a threat because we want them to be radio. Free Europe classic propaganda ever dutifully playing up. The narratives introduced the story of a few thousand of them returning to Afghanistan after volunteering to fight against Isis and Syria. So here's what's interesting. This is a group that veil L.. Acknowledge was fighting Isis. But somehow them coming back are now bad guys right anyone fighting against Isis in the eyes of the. US government are bad guy because they're fighting their proxy right. This is about as stupid as General Salamone the leading factor in the groups fighting isis being a terrorist. Because they don't like him because they don't like Shiites right. This is how ridiculous Nicholas and.

And this is where again it comes back to the idea that there's more nuance to what he's saying than just it was China and it was the Wuhan Lab and again if you please. He's watched the full video. But you have to understand that. There's an interesting kind of the first thing I picked up on the last time I talked about this. Was We say the World Health Organization knows but yet got it came from that lab specifically and I thought well that's interesting because wouldn't they say something right. If this was only China wouldn't the World Health Organization sound the alarm. Wazi says there in on it to some degree and the reality is more so that there may not just be one culprit so that would make sense there now. He does tend to take interesting interesting way. He'll he'll point out that the anthrax was from a US government lab and that it was lied about so with SARS right there bio weapons and yet at the same time. It seems that he is willing to take at face. Value the government numbers which I think a lot of people do. It's interesting how we can go on and on and on about how governments lie about about this. They lie about that and yet when the numbers kind of just come out. We don't consider those are coming from the government right. These are coming from and then passing through the mainstream media which just a whole `nother you you know. It's the worst possible thing that could go pass the mainstream media right but the reality is that he still has kind of taking those numbers at face value even well kind of knowing full well that they were behind previous lies in the past and I think that only amounts of the real the the fact that there's really nowhere else to go or he's he's just taking what data is there whether it's lies or truths or whatever from everybody and coming to conclusions based on it which is what we should all be doing. Everybody lies or everyone you know everyone can get something something wrong so you should discount sources of information but just recognize that in this discussion that he seems to kind of think that it's more serious than it appears as opposed to the other way. Then I'm not what's your why he feels that way. It's just based on the information we're seeing and the media and the Chinese government's putting out this idea that it's is what it is opposed to considering that they've lied about numbers in the past. That thought that was interesting. Now let's go to the next part..

"In Hollywood hills. Find the link to his LA times review on the good food website. Lebanon belongs to the historic Levette a fertile region. Just east of the Mediterranean with a growing climate like southern California's since next month's pie contest will feature Levin. Teen cuisine is a special category. I'm turning to another food tradition from this part of the world they called the area the fertile crescent. And it's cold that for a reason tomato be so fragrant MDC in our Matic east it like an apple I had this real mix of seeing retaliating political situation. And I'm finding a lot of joy and beauty. That's food writer Yasmeen Khan for research trips to modern Palestine, it produced a book full of personal stories and recipes that will remind you of California's bounty from colorful message to fresh seafood. Hi, hi, it's nice to be here. Yeah. It's wonderful to have you here in person. Your first visit to Israel West Bank was about a decade ago, and you were working for British human rights charity. What were your first impressions? Oh, I think come I found it quite shocking Tucson, a very human level. I mean coming from London to kind of be immersed in this place where there were soldiers and their checkpoints, and there wolves was very striking. So I think that was a huge parts of it. And then at the same time, I also fell in love with the region a little bit. Amidst the challenges that I saw it's an incredibly warm part of the world both emotionally as well as the weather and from a culinary point of view. I was blown away by by what I ate. How does the occupation affect how people are able to cook? And put food on the table every day. It just affects in in every single way like your ability as a Palestinian to to move is. So restricted there. Our checkpoints set up throughout the West Bank. I'm you need permits to travel into Israel in places like the Gaza Strip which for the last eleven years has been blockaded by the Israeli army with no movement and all goods, kind of monitored. I mean in the last eleven years some of the items that have been prescribed against that you come into Gaza includes things like chocolate, lentils pasta. And now, you know, eighty percent of people in Gaza, according to the United Nations, I dependent on food aid. So. So you know, you can't really get away from it. And what I wanted to do with my book is this isn't of the world that we all hear about in the news so much and I wanted to just kind of get beyond some of those headlines and share intimate. Details of how Palestinians within this context. A living their lives and the resilience that I saw was just so inspiring. So let's talk about some of the places, you visited and what foods ground them route them. Let's talk about so novelist is a fascinating place to visit. It really felt like a very vibrant Palestinian city, and is in the middle of the West Bank, and is perhaps most famous for Kaffee, which is this incredible dessert, I I kind of describe it as like the lovechild child. Bark lavar and cheesecake, so it's kind of warm a car, we tease which kind of has the texture of mozzarella, but you know, not salted and it's layered with this crunchy feeling or semolina crossed and then doused in orange blossom and car. Incented syrup? So it's like gooey crunchy. Oh, it's it's so Morrish and it's famous from originating in Nablus. And that was one of the the biggest delights I had when I ain't. And talk about the link between Gaza and dill. This was a really interesting discovery for me. So, you know, Persian food uses a lot of Dell. And a lot of herbs and I'm a big fan. I think Dell's one of those hopes that can divide people. But you know, I am brace it, but in Gaza and cuisine dill foams, I describe as the holy trinity of Gaza and flavors. It sits alongside chilies and garlic to form the bedrock of Gazan cuisine dill, the FRANZ smashed in and cut up and used in solids or used to fish, but the seeds are also used dill seeds, which I've never used before ground down again and added to soups or stews kind of slightly. Sweet a niece flavor that comes through not very intense, but just just very subtle. You talk about the three different profiles of Palestinian flavors. Yes. Palestinian cookery can be divided into three main may. Main types you've got the food from the Galilee, which is perhaps what we associate more with Kazini those bright fresh salads like Fatu Shaw, her flak, tabu, ley lovely, stuffed eggplants and peppers. Maybe Braise okra, it's very vegetable focused or a seasonal local plant based and then you have the food from the West Bank, which is more influenced by bedouin culture. It's it's the desert. It's a lot drier food that tends to be a bit more meat focused. Lots more bread one of my favorite dishes from that region is this beautiful difficult Massakin, which kind of roast pieces of chicken marinated in a Suma can all spice, and and then roasted and and layered over flat breads with red onions with the roasting uses pulled over so it just soaks into the bread, and you tear apart, and then there's a few Gaza, which again, you know, is is very different punchier. You know lot more spice a lot more south. You know, tastes with the use of pomegranate molasses in stews, conic, Gazan cuisine. Traditionally had such an emphasis on seafood things like Kibaye. These little kind of pounded meatballs that we know commonly made with lamb in Gaza would be made with fish. And you might have, you know, again, shrimp stews all stuffed squid, you know, really, really vibrant, seafood and fish based one of my really favorite parts of the book is the vegetable chapter. So I have to ask you first, the quick pickled avocados described them and tell me where you discovered them. This was just in a kitchen in Ramallah visiting some friends, and you know, we've all had that situation where you've gotten avocado. That's a bit firm. But you're like, it's okay, I'm going to crack into it. It's gonna be alright then you cut it open. And it's too firm. And you're like, oh, why didn't I way? Then what do you do that? Well, here's a recipe you can make a very quick pickle. It's using some apple cider vinegar. Some aromatic herbs I like to use I think salon, Tracy, some garlic, again, maybe some del you just place all in with the avacado is pop them in the fridge for a couple of hours, and they soften, and it's just a wonderful way to just use up. Hot avocado is I really recommend it. I see a whole different version of avocado toast. So you were talking about cafe. And so much of the food is formed a little balls, which I love that you have an eggplant and Fateh one that just looks gorgeous. Yeah, it's very tactile. Actually now that we think about in that way so much of Palestinian cooker, you know, whether it's kneading or stuffing squash. Or, you know, hand-rolling math tool, which is this type of kind of giant couscous suites always described that way. But I always think of it more pasta because it doesn't need Shaef the element of cooking and creating dishes with your hands is definitely there. And, you know, the recipes in this book, you know, there's some traditional Palestinian ones, but things like the eggplant emphatic after really kind of my interpretations of ingredients that I was inspired by you know, I like cooking with vegetables, I liked creating kind of vegetarian versions of Middle Eastern classics, and these are just made with lovely ground bulgar wheat again, lots of fresh herbs some pine nuts, and lemon zest. It's really great picnic food, or you know. If you're kind of got people coming around and I want little starters. So let's talk about a couple of Gaza and dishes Gaza, lentils that looks so delicious described them. Yes. I they just, you know, your everyday kind of Brown or green lentil that you cook with Chuck Todd and load of garlic. And then you season it with garlic and green chili, and then crucially some tahini now in Gaza again. This is something new to me they have the special type of tahini called red tahini, which is toasted. So it's has that affinity that. We kind of associate with far eastern cuisines so ads this kind of slice smokiness nutty flavor. And with the lemon and the garlic and the chilly, it's a really kind of uh the meal. I I love it. And then you have a soup. That's almost a soup version of that where it's a sour lemon soup with a you. Call it a salon tra- walnut smash. Yeah. Absolutely. I think one of the reasons I probably found another with Palestinian food is because of those affinities that it has with Persian food. And of course, you know, if you're making opposing dish. You're gonna just put as many herbs in there as you can. So that soup is the same again. I love recipes the kind of stuff that you might have in the store cupboard. But then you just judge them off as I say with the freshness at the end the hub and walnuts smash which is like Sinatra leave some walnut, some garlic. He's a really good way of in livening a simple lentil soup so beautiful and delicious. Let's talk about okra, which is when I encounter a really great okra dish from that this part of the world, I'm so happy, and I just sort of wanted just gorge on it, you give a tip that I've never heard anybody give before which is not to trim the stems down too much. That's right. I also love outcry. I think it's just got a bad rap. You know? I mean, anything if you don't cook it properly tastes nice. But at the same time if you cook things Li they taste good. I'm with ochre. It's about not over cooking at and to stop it getting that glue patex show, which I think is the thing that people like it have issue with why I recommend is safe. You've got the the stem of the fruit and is a fruit. Vegetable you kind of Kasey all off you try and leave some of it intact. And that keeps the liquid inside of it intact. When it's cooking. And so it doesn't collapse on itself in my braised okra recipe. I actually also recommend roasting voicing first. So again, you're not adding more liquid to something which could actually make it. Go to soft. Yeah. Oh looks so beautiful. So you met the founder of the Palestinian seed library. So this is such an interesting project to me because it speaks to a lot of the challenges that are going on there and to a sense of rigidness. Can you talk about her and what they're trying? To do. Yeah. So this is an incredible botanist called Vivian some saw. And this is just outside of Bethlehem. And I think one of the reasons I thought story of seed library that's trying to collect heirloom varieties of different Palestinian vegetables and fruits, the reason why I thought it was so important is because she this is a very similar issue that we see resonate in farming communities all over the world, you know, we have gone into the situation over the last fifty years of the types of seeds. We we're using dramatically reducing, and of course, the impact that has on the soil, but also just actually for us in our tastes. So she's doing this incredible work collecting keeping a library of seeds, and then encouraging local farmers to use differences instead of just being relying on the big cheap one that they can get from multinational corporation. Yeah. She said, I think in your book, you talk about how she said that she returned and realize that because of the constraints on food moving in and out that there'd be. Become more and more reliance on more industrialized food products. Which sounds so familiar, but then for her like her touch point was a purple carrots, and I thought to myself we have purple carrots here. Yeah. How interesting to know that the purple carrots. We can by the Santa Monica farmers market has this link. Yeah. To memory for a woman.

"But there's also a desire in the international system to deter the use of force and so what we say is listen if you are in a territory as a result of a use of force you're not allowed simply to declare your sovereignty over that territory even if for example we're talking about the noman's land that uh between israel and jordan between night that existed between nineteen forty nine and nineteen sixty seven we are going to refer the territory as occupied territory when israel takes it even though its ultimate status is something that's in contention because we want to create a disincentive for states to use force as a general matter and we want to create an incentive for them to resolve their differences through negotiations rather than through uh the projection of strength i want to go back to serb point that dahlia raised earlier um regarding the golan heights that as was sad as a a territory that was taken by force by israeli ninety six seven also fifty years ago and annexed a few years later thing was 1980 but according to your analysis annexation is sort of a first degree occupation riots it's seven more graver than actual occupation would therefore trigger more a harsher a harsher response from the international community yet what we see if we take the golan heights versus the west bank we see the the opposite basically israel get some much worse press for these socalled occupation in the west bank it does fall the it's the fact that aids did europe as well as effect on extension of the golan heights nut brings me to ask you isn't that really not about territory but about people the fact that the armenians millions of palestinians held by israel under a military regime that should and does determine the legal and diplomatic responses to israel's conduct.

"To my mind the definition of annexation is pretty straightforward it's enacting the law of one sovereign country over territory that it has occupied is data too restrictive definition of the term and if so how do we expand it so that to you know it will have practical implications as well it's a good question i i think that part of the problem that we face is that most of the definitions of annexation that we see come from prior to the twenty th century and come from a period when annexation was lawful before we said two states do not engage in conquest and so in the earlier definitions what we saw was a requirement that you have effective possession of territory which is not an issue in the west bank there's more of an argument with respect to the gaza strip certainly and also that there be an intent to exercise permanent dominion over the territory now how we determine whether state has that intent is what you were asking do we just look at formal acts like uh the kind of a declaration of that sovereignty is being extended over territory that we saw israel undertake visavis jerusalem visavis the golan heights or is it also appropriate these days to also look at less explicit acts now there is precedent um and we see even in the old treatises from the nineteenthcentury early twenty thcentury some reference to the need to look at implicit um or de facto annexation that such as i'm so.
