Pompeo Attempts To Cement Trump's Legacy In Israel Ahead Of A Biden Presidency
"Workers at the Capitol are dressing up the West Front for Joe Biden's inauguration, members of the current administration are rushing to cement Donald Trump's policies in place. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo was in the Middle East. This past week, he unveiled new pro Israel policies that could be hard for an incoming Biden administration to undo NPR's Daniel Estrin reports from Jerusalem. Compelled, became the first secretary of state to visit an Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank. He had lunch at a winery that named one of its wines, Pompeo. The U. S used to take a dim view of settlements, seeing their growth as an obstacle to peace because they take up land Palestinians claim for an independent state. But Pompeo says Israel has a right to settle the land featured in the Bible for a long time State Department. Took the wrong view of settlements. It took of you that didn't recognize the history of this special place. Pompeo announced a new policy favoring the winery He visited products made in West Bank settlements must be labeled made in Israel when shipped to the U. S. A ghetto front with peace now and Israeli group against Settlements says this could make it hard for consumers who don't want to support settlements if people want to boycott Or not to participate in the occupation. They can do it by not buying products from settlements. This is going to be labors that his friends and they cannot know if it's from occupied territories. Then. Boyce is being revealed all of Israel. Pompeo announced another new policy last week. Today. I want to make one announcement with respect to a decision by the State Department that we will regard The global any Israel BDS campaign as anti Semetic BDS has boycott divestment and sanctions, a movement that calls to boycott Israel because of its policies toward Palestinians. Some Israel supporters see it as a threat because some boycotters oppose Israel itself as a Jewish state, But boycott activists say it's a non violent form of protest. So why unveil these new policies right before Biden takes over. Dead. Ravi V. And Israeli settler leader close to the Trump administration says Pompeo is playing chess with Biden one step before Checkmate. It's putting buy them some sort of check. If you really reversed his decision that were done by the constant ministrations. You might have to confront criticism. As to why doing it. Other administrations have taken steps on Israeli Palestinian policy right before leaving office, like when President Obama allowed the United Nations Security Council resolution condemning Israel's settlements. Scott Lisinski was an adviser for the Obama administration. President Clinton himself using his presidential transition, trying to move Middle East peace forward George Shultz at the end of the Reagan presidency. Negotiating a very careful formal diplomatic dialogue, the first ever between American and Palestinian leaders. These are examples of diplomatic opportunism. Palestinian leaders see this as their opportunity to make nice with Biden. They've agreed to resume security and economic ties with Israel after a six month stand still, and they say they might change a practice, Democrats criticized paying stipends to Palestinians convicted of attacking Israelis. Many Palestinians criticized the gestures like former Minister Nabil Armor in this video he posted. He had the infertile into Paloma that America, he says. Why give more ground before Biden enters office, while Israel is taking advantage of this time to announce more settlement construction. Israel got another boost yesterday with news that the U. S. Justice Department decided not to renew restrictions on the parole of former U. S intelligence analyst Jonathan Pollard. He was convicted of espionage for giving classified U. S documents to Israel and is now expected to move to Israel where he has popular support.

Trump Administration Labels Movement To Boycott Israel 'Anti-Semitic'
"Martin. The clock is running out on the Trump administration. But Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is making pro Israel policies that could last after he's gone. Pompeo has spent a couple of days in Israel this week and in areas under Israeli occupation, which is a controversial move in and of itself, and he is stepping up U. S support for Jewish settlements. That could complicate things for the incoming Biden administration. NPR's Daniel Estrin joins us Now from Jerusalem, Daniel Good morning. Good morning. So, as you know, everywhere, a top U. S official goes in the Middle East is seen as symbolic in some way by some party, Which is why these itineraries air so carefully planned. Having said that it with that context, Where has Pompeo gone? A lot of symbolic places. First of all, he visited the museum affiliated with the U. S evangelicals, and he was the most senior U. S official to visit the Golan Heights, which Israel annexed from Syria, and most countries do not recognize that but the Trump administration has. He also was the most high that the highest ranking U. S official to visit an Israeli settlement in the West Bank. He visited an Israeli settler winery, which has a wine label called Pompeo. That's an honor of pump. Oh, saying that Jewish settlements in the West Bank are legitimate. Now. Activists point out that the vineyards of that settlement winery are on lands that Palestinian land owners say are there's Thea's Railly, who runs the winery lives in a home on a Palestinian landowner's property, they say, so there's even an Israeli demolition order on on that home. And the bigger context. Most countries say that the very presence of Israeli settlements on occupied land violates international law and hurts the chances of Palestinians being able to establish their own state there. But Pompeo signed the winery guestbook, referring to the West Bank by its biblical name. He sees this as the land of the Bible, and there's speculation he's thinking about a presidential run in 2024. So perhaps these visits can help him with evangelical voters. It's not just where he's going right. It's what he's saying to he's announcing new new policies. That's right. He made two new Decorah declarations. He said that a pro Palestinian movement to boycott Israel is anti Semetic. Now, most or many U. S. States have passed laws against these kinds of Israel boycotts and some boycott supporters. Say that Israel should not exist as a Jewish state boycotters say this anti Semitic label is wrong and an attempt to delegitimize a nonviolent protest in support of Palestinians. Of the second declaration that Pompeo made is that when the U. S imports products like wines, for instance, from Jewish settlements in the West Bank, they must be labeled as made in Israel. Now the West Bank is not Israel. Israel has not officially annexed those lands. But here again, Pompeo is siding with the Israel's claims to the land. So how how is all this going to box in the incoming Biden administration? Pompeo is clearly trying to cement you know his view and the administration's view of settlements before leaving office, And this does point put Biden in a bind. One Israeli settler leader compared it to chests and Pompeo declaring check. So now it's Biden's move. He has opposed settlement expansion, and if he reverses these policies that could lead to tensions with Israelis. Of course, Pompeii was not the only one trying to influence the Biden administration. Now I should mention that Palestinians themselves are taking steps to create warm relations and the Palestinians just re established security and economic ties with Israel that could Be something that buy them would would recognize and and

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.

A Lot Is Riding On The U.S. Election For Israelis, Palestinians
"Attention to the election results. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he has had a huge influence on President Trump's Mideast policy. And the two have given political support to each other when challenged. Overall, Israelis and Palestinians have a lot riding on whether Trump or Joe Biden winds. NPR's Daniel Astra is in Jerusalem and joins us now. Hi, Daniel. Morning, Rachel. Let's start with Netanyahu. What is it? Steak for him in this U. S election. Ah lot of that stake. His relationship with Trump is one of the strongest cards that he has with Israelis, and Netanyahu is facing weekly protests calling for him to resign. So maybe those protests could intensify if the protesters find inspiration in a trump loss. I mean, we're talking about two leaders who really have depended on each other during very tough times. Netanyahu has come to Trump's defense when Trump has been accused of fomenting anti Semitism. And then Trump has come to Netanyahu's aid when Netanyahu struggled to keep his job in three consecutive elections, But now Netanyahu is really playing it safe. Just in case biting winds, and I want to play you this very awkward exchange that happened. Just a week and a half ago, Trump had just brokered a diplomatic deal between Israel and Sudan, and he had Netanyahu on speakerphone. You think sleepy Joe could have made this deal, baby sleepy, Joe, I think you think he would have made this deal somehow. I don't think so. You want to? We appreciate for peace from anyone in America, and we appreciate what you've done and obviously Wow. So much said in the pause. There s O walk through what Donald Trump has done for Israel in Netanyahu's view. Trump has sighted with Israel and against the Palestinians again and again, he moved the U. S embassy to Jerusalem. He sided with Israel's claims to the city, even though Palestinians also want to establish their own capital. There. He recognized Israel's annexation of the goal on heights, which was cap from Syria. He went against most countries when he recognized the legitimacy of Israel's settlements in the occupied West Bank and even proposed he steal that would see Israel annexed all of its West Bank settlements. Which Palestinians say would make it impossible for them to have their own viable state. The last thing he's done is broker diplomatic deals between Israel and some Arab countries, and that broke the Arab concensus. That Israel should make peace with the Palestinians first before being accepted by the Arab world. Alright, So, Daniel, how do Palestinians view this election then? Well, they have a very clear preference there praying for Biden TTO win. They hope he can offer them a fresh start away. You know, to renew relations with the U. S, which have been cut off under Trump. I asked Dan Shapiro, the US ambassador to Israel, under Obama, what might change under a bite and presidency. He said Biden would not move the U. S embassy out of Jerusalem, but that Biden would take steps to preserve a two state solution to the Israeli Palestinian conflict, like opposing Israeli settlement expansion. And that would be something that Palestinians would welcome. NPR's Daniel Estrin in Jerusalem. Thank you. You're welcome. And people are following the US election and

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.

That was one of the ones that didn't go quite as planned on DH. Yeah, Of course.

"The head of Jordan's government has warning for Israel and for its ally. The United States Jordan's prime minister spoke with Steve Inskeep Omar Ras is a longtime Jordanian political figure who is now the top official beneath Jordan's King. Abdullah. Jordan exists in a very tough neighborhood and it's the snowbirds been tough for. Decades, Jordan borders, Syria and Iraq, and also Israel. If you look at a map, you see Jordan touches the occupied West Bank, which is called that because it is the West Bank of the Jordan River, the West Bank is territory the Jordan controlled until Israeli troops took it in one, thousand, nine, Sixty, seven, Jordan is one of the few. Arab. Countries that have since made A. A peace treaty with Israel, but it is watching with alarm. Is Prime Minister Benjamin. Netanyahu, promises to annex portions of the West Bank. Israel maintains that it has both security needs and historic ties to that land. While the Palestinians long lived. There wanted for future state. What happens if Israel begins annexing territory in the occupied West Bank is the Prime Minister Netanyahu has promised to do. Well. We hope it won't happen because Jordan and His Majesty. The king. We have been four a just and peaceful settlement in the region, which includes two state solution with the Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital. Any unilateral action undermines that and puts the whole region and I. If I might say, the world an dicey situation, this is not in anybody's interests frankly at all and. And, if the two state solution becomes not viable because of this annexation, then my question is what is alternative what his other option to the Israelis is it thinking of a one St Democracy for two people or is it going to be a state of apartheid which the world was glad to not have an its membership since the end of the South African apartheid state? What happens if this annexation goes ahead, is Jordan, a position of saying we will advocate a one state solution in which Palestinians would seek their rights within the Israeli state. Well Jordan has historically been committed to a two-state solution, and it is still a viable solution. If Israel does not go ahead with annexation, if it does, it's creating new facts on the grounds that will undermine the two state solution, and by undermining the two states' solution, we need to know what is the plan that does not undermine long-term peace and stability in the region and I. Don't think there is one. Prime Minister is you probably know some figures on the Israeli. Right have been asked when you take land in the occupied West. Bank what happens to the people? Do you end up with stateless people? As you mentioned an apartheid state and one answer given by figures on the Israeli bright is well, the Palestinians can become Jordanian citizens with Jordanian passports, and in fact, they once did that Would you accept them? that's pipe-dream. That's wishful thinking. That's not gonNA. Happen the whole. Jordanian. Society from starting from His Majesty the King to the government to the people are steadfast about this. Jordan will not be Palestine. Palestine. Is a state that needs to be on territory and Palestinians. So we are unified with the Palestinians on fully ejecting the idea of of transfer. Do. You think the trump administration is hearing your concerns. Jordan's relationship with the US is strategic and we communicate all the time and there's a common understanding of all constraints and their constraints and an understanding of where Jordan stance on this issue. So the strategic nature of that relationship allows us to coordinate express out of us and have agreements and differences every now. But do you think they hear your concerns specifically about annexation? Israel's promise to annex parts of the West Bank. Yes His Majesty. The king has expressed his concerns about annexation unilateral action in every international forum that anything short of a two state solution. Will. Send. You know what it would do. It will close the whatever hope prospect for hope, there still is, and when hope disappears frustration and anger and that tends to and has in the past led to extremism, and we've seen extremism in that region, and as also we've seen around the world extremism also becomes global. So everybody will pay the price of this. Do you think you're being taken seriously by the United States. Steve. I think I've answered your question We've made our views very clear, and that's what we do in every setting with our strategic. One of the things I want to ask about the trump administration. Has attempted various moves against foreign students, international students in the United States. The trump administration has also made moves to reduce legal immigration setting. Aside, illegal immigration. They've moved against legal immigration and I'd like people to know that you were educated in the United States, which is true of a lot of people who've risen to senior positions in countries around the world. What did you get out of your US education? Well. My own individual experience was it was studying in the United States was a huge benefit for me because it was a context in which students from all over the world were there. We learned a lot from each other about each other, but also it was a great opportunity for American students who had a chance to meet students from the world and learn. About the world. So that's My own experience. Prime Minister has thank you very much for the time. Thank you Steve He is the head of government under Jordan's King. Abdullah..

"So I think it's incredibly problematic to say that well. Sorry, this is what were the reality is. We can't do anything about it. We just need to accept it. There actually are things that we could do as the United States to push Israel but things like. Moving the embassy to Jerusalem things like. Acknowledging Israeli control. Over the Golan Heights, those are not the things that that are. That are necessary to push Israel. That's giving Israel what what it wants and if the trump administration had done those things. Saying, okay, we'll recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights. We'll move the embassy to Jerusalem, but in exchange you have to give up significant. Concessions to the Palestinians that would at least be justifiable, but that's not what we're seeing, which means that the entire concept of the US being you know a power that can pull Israel. An extract concessions seems to have completely evaporated and that means. That the idea of of the peace process, the two state solution is in fact, more or less dad. I don't know about that. It is possible that the peace process in the way that we have disgusted and understood it for the past few years is in fact dead without d two state solution that is to say some version of there being. Two separate independent states in these territory, both of which are viable and sovereign on their own land that may not be dead, either just because the US strategy for the past few years has failed doesn't mean you couldn't end up imagining a scenario in which moves towards unilateral annexation or creeping annexation, as as it's often termed the current Israeli policy can be undone right it just. It's unclear in the future which which of those things is going to happen. and I've heard this from Israeli left to look the status. Quo Is truly awful. They're more inspiring than Americans are, but their view is also under the right set of circumstances Israel can be coerced back. Towards the two state lines it just it's just a question of international and specifically American will, which is why I know I agree absolutely we, which is why. I think this new development in shifts in the Democratic Party are so important, because if there's one thing that I think about Joe, Biden, it's not that he has fixed views that make him a centrist. It's that he his pulse. Pulse of US tend to be a reflection of whatever the consensus is of the Democratic Party at the time, so if Joe Biden, doesn't fact win the election in the fall? Get a Biden administration. January you can imagine a Democratic Party more willing to punish Netanyahu and Israel for creepy annexation, and for its behaviors influencing, and maybe even breathing life back into the currently dead, seeming to State Paradigm. and and we're going to leave it there I.

"Is really a bridge too far for even mainstream. Democrats are starting to show. It's worth noting that although most people especially lately we've talked about Ilan Omar Rashid Sleeve, and all those others and they deserve credit. A lot of people kinda point to Bernie Sanders, breaking the taboo of criticizing Israel pretty openly during a presidential election as kind of where the dam broke in part among Democrats right being a not only on politician himself, but also Jewish man that that kind of helped you know, allow kind of made it okay for people to start criticizing Israel and then we've seen in actually pretty big consequence of this There was a race for Democratic primary for congressional seat in New York and Eliot Engel the chairman of the House, Foreign Affairs Committee lost to Jamal, Bowman for many reasons most likely that angle was caught on a hot mike kind of thing like I don't need to be here. If it weren't for like, be having a challenger and the whole other things I wouldn't be here here in this context was a social justice protest. George Lloyd stuff, right but some people I've talked to and others have cited the fact that you know angle has been a pretty strong proponent of the US Israel relationship in defending Israel, and if I recall correctly, voted against the Iran nuclear deal, and all that and and Bowman consistently sort of hammered him on that, and so is that the main reason angle seems to have lost was on official tally, but it looks bad for him. Is that no, it's not, but that was a big part of even just a Democratic primary debate for congressional seat. So this is the kind of thing we're seeing now. One thing I'll add to debate here. Is My general view that like the peace process not died before trump. This notion of a two state solution died. Wade before this moment. As we've alluded to American Presidents Democrat Republican in the past. Have all basically kind of. Done two things one given Israel. Tons of leeway and and do kind of not tackled the power imbalance in the negotiations between Israel and Palestine, I mean. We have some have paid lip service. To the Palestinian cause, others have been pretty more online with What's going on with with the Israeli government? But on the whole? It's just kind of been like hey. Israel don't allow settlers. were. We're going to punish you if you allow more settlers to go forward. And then Israeli settlers went in, and we kinda did nothing CETERA ET CETERA and so on and so on and to the point that now you have like upwards of six hundred thousand settlers in the West Bank et Cetera, so it's This was always going to be true. That was almost. It's the condition on the ground, and if there's a part of me that goes, yes, there are changing you know political fortunes in there are different views here and Netanyahu's a part of it of course. But it's also just seems like the situation on the ground is what it is, it is. The the seeds have been planted long ago. And this is the fruition now did the the literal conditions on the ground have changed, and so it's you can't put the genie back in the bottle to mix a thousand metaphors in this rant. But like it just seems like at some point you look at the situation you go. This is now the way we have to go about it that there's no, if you care very deeply about. Kind of you know we'll have. The Palestinians move going forward and if you're a critic of Israel, this is like the only way you can express yourself because going back to a two-state solution if everything was OK as if it were nineteen ninety-three again. Makes no sense. Many things have changed. So. It, it's just a reality at this point that the peace process as we knew it was dead, and so you do need to have the rethink that. And your assessment analysis is correct in the sense that that's how I mean that's. That's the argument that essentially you know. Netanyahu and many are making that look reality on the ground has changed sorry about that, but like we need to have a new reality, the thing that Mrs and I don't say that you're missing it, but I mean that argument can purposely misses something which is that that's not an accident. Right that the the strategy of actively encroaching and building up these settlements is an active strategy. Strategy to change the facts on the ground as a sort of fatal complete to kind of make it so that well sorry too late and the United States. You're absolutely right when it comes to. You know how the US has kind of been such a staunch supporter of Israel and only mostly paid lip service. You may remember the very very like last month or two of the Obama Administration Obama took a major dramatic step which when you actually think about, it is like even that was dramatic. Obama's on the way out of office. Trump is on his way in and there comes a UN vote. Basically condemning new settlements and the Obama Administration made this historic decision to abstain. They didn't even vote in favor of condemning like it wasn't even that dramatic. It was just we're going to abstain meaning that traditionally the United States would have jumped in to stop that and shut down with the vetoed, said Nope we're not condemning Israel. And the Obama Administration made this kind of dramatic step, but the fact that. It was because of what was on his way out. That he was able to do that and not worry about facing the political consequences, but you know the other thing, too. You know talking about how the negotiations have gone historically, I think. The argument was always yes, that US is really close friend of Israel right, but it was always kind of explained as like. That's why we need the US involved in this conflict, right? We don't need a neutral arbiter. We don't need Switzerland to come in here and start. Negotiating things we need the United States because of that close relationship with Israel by being such a close friend Israel giving them all the security assistance. The US will then be able to pull Israel, and extract concessions by saying look. We're such a good friend of yours that we will actually push you to do things. That you don't WanNa do because we'll guarantee your security meeting. Things like you know letting. The you know the creation of an independent Palestinian state alongside Israel exist right, and so the the argument was that will. Yes, the US is not a neutral arbiter in there, obviously on the side of of Israel, but that's a good thing. Because you know, it takes a friend to be able to you to push someone to do things they don't WanNa. Do that didn't actually really happen. In some. In some instances I think the Oslo process in particular Camp David I think the US did actually. Work to try to to try to push the Israelis to make concessions. The problem is that that that hasn't ever really gone anywhere right? All these peace plans have all just kind of limped along and meanwhile. Netanyahu and also the settler. Have kind of created these facts on the ground like you said, and so we are now in a position where everyone's like well. oops, sorry, this is what it looks like a guests or just going to have to have one state or no. There's not going to be a Palestine sorry y'all, but this is just what happened, and it's because of that is a concerted decades long effort to make those conditions happen and two blocked Palestinians every step of the way from trying to. Change the situation on the ground. So I think it's incredibly problematic to say that well. Sorry, this is what were the reality is. We can't do anything about it. We just need to accept it. There actually are things that we could.

"Support for Palestinian rights and Palestinian self-determination as as a cause that is wrapped up in the broader and of social justice. Movement, you know these people. Have Been. Essentially less stateless for decades and There's a very real and I would say fair perception out there. Among the left, but also internationally. The Palestinians. Can have as a as a group in as. A as a political actor, particularly in the West Bank less so in Gaza, which is run by mass have tried pretty much everything they can everything they can think of to try to get like recognition and try to get international support for the State of Palestine Right. They have tried to fight back against Israel in in legitimate legal ways right rather than. Largely abandoning, and if the the the violent model particularly in the West Bank, but doing things like going to the international criminal quarter, going to the UN or to international bodies, and trying to get recognition and trying to bring. Attention to their cause and saying look. We're GONNA use legal channels. We're GONNA. Use the things that you said that we're supposed to do because we're not supposed to use violence and they've tried to do that and they've been blocked every single step of the way in large part by the United States for being a veto wielding member of the United Nations Security Council, and so there's a very real perception that the Palestinians have basically been left with no options. And that you know that also coincides with like we discussed earlier. This right wing shift in Israeli politics where the the left in Israel, the kind of You Know Bucci Herzog. Isaac Hertzog the traditional laughed in Israel that that used to be powerful as basically evaporated. As a political kind of a viable political movement and anyone that can actually win elections, and so I think again. There's very real sense that it's I don't think it's A. It's a lack of care. And that no one cares anymore. We don't want to support Israel because who cares I think it's it's we. WanNa be engaged in this conflict, and in this in this you know. Conversation in a way that we're going to stand up for Palestinian rights and self-determination I think that also goes to having voices like Russia to leave and on Omar in the Democratic Party in a way that we didn't. We have Muslim American. Representatives elected to the Democratic Party and that's obviously going to change things right. They're going to have voices of for people who you know. Russia to leave in particular, who has like actual connections to? Like the the experiences of Palestinians who? Are Not going to have a traditional view of US support for Israel is sacrosanct. We can't touch anything and so I think that's a really important shift to understand. Say Two things that that Jon. These you're you're talking about sort of long term trends, but I think there are two more immediate short-term things that have really crystallized. What seemed like it was probably a an inevitable biproduct of. Changes to the conflict in Israel and to American public opinion in general, the first is that Netanyahu has pursued. Polarization is a deliberate political strategy. He's a very savvy observer of American politics. Right the guy he spent a lot of time in the United States. He knows the US pretty well, and he knows that American politics has been bifurcated. and. Increasingly polarized by virtue of the two major parties but instead of trying to pursue the traditional Israelis strategy with just try to Tamp down on. Those divides as much as possible. Netanyahu has gambled that he can align himself with the Republican. Party doing things like going to Congress with the support of Republicans to give a speech opposed to the Iran deal right. Right, which infuriated Democrats in the Obama Administration but solidified his support among Republicans the idea being. He thinks he's long term. Structural trends are going to make de Democrats critical of his version of right wing Israeli politics. Anyway so might as well aligned with the Republicans will. We can notice paid off in the short term, but in the long run when Democrats retake power. One Democratic Hill staffer referred to Netanyahu as the greatest Palestinian rights advocate currently in politics right when I was talking recently for this reason right? Because now he's made it such that support for Israel's is in a way Republican. 'CAUSE and Democrats are free to take more and more left wing positions on it, because it's identified with the trump administration by virtue of a calculated strategy by the Netanyahu. Netanyahu government and the second thing is annexation itself right? This is really It's hard to overstate hunch of a paradigm shift. The says right for a really long time. The centrist argument in the United States has been Israel is committed to a two-state solution. They've tried to find peace over and over again. They just do not have a Palestinian partner that is willing to make the necessary concessions. Is like this is the thing that is justified. American sort of one sided support for Israel for for quite some time in terms of the mainstream understanding in both parties of how things work, but now with the Israeli government officially promising to do something that would detonate the two state solution up potentially permanently or fatally undermining it. There's some debate as to whether that is actually what would happen, but it it certainly unilateral move that blows up the paradigm in the way that it's supposed to operate you now have Democrats no longer being able to say I think Israel is committed to its you. You state solution if they do this, and so that means they have to rethink the way they approach these things and you're. You're seeing really. Radical shifts among people were influential on the liberal left side of the of the spectrum. For example you have Peter Beinart. WHO's a very influential jewish-american intellectual writing an essay? Arguing that Israel has given up on the two state solution, and now it's time for for some kind of one state solution, which basically disestablish Israel as a formerly Jewish state and go for some kind of democratic, very different setups, but a democratic system where Palestinians are citizens. Citizens of this new country Israel Palestine or whatever you WANNA call it which is, he's been. You know one of the biggest to state advocates for a very long time now so Peter Shifting is a really big deal, and the second is a long Goldenberg who has a policy hand on Israel, and the Obama administration writing an essay, arguing that the US response to unilateral annexation should be to recognize Palestine as an independent state, basically the argument, being if Israel blows up the broker two state solution, the United States needs to punish Israel and advance the two state solution unilaterally on its. Its own, so that means basically just saying there is a sovereign Palestine in the West Bank and Israel does not have rights to control it anymore. Ilan's position. would have been radical just a few years ago, or even just a year ago, now compared to Peters position. It's like almost mainstream right because it's still adhering to state paradigm in the shows just how far left annexation is pushing the democratic, party, and what the consequences could be in terms of Israel which depends on bipartisan support for its aid package and diplomatic support like vetoing all these critical security council resolutions Like This.

"For it to happen before November. How do rallies feel about annexation? So views a mixed. The isn't overwhelming support for it. It sort of breaks down roughly in the polls into about thirty percents four, and then like roughly thirty to forty against, and then the rest simply don't have an opinion on it, so it's not a huge issue especially when you compare it to the economy of the corona virus, response is not something entire countries calling for but what I will say, the people who are calling for our people that the right wing government wants to court their their supporters, their powerful groups, and also the response against annexation. There have been protests within Israel against. Thousands of Israelis rallied in Tel Aviv, about Saturday night, the government's plans to annex parts of the occupied West Bank. Demonstrators waved Isreaeli and Palestinian flags, but those voices, and not very loud, and more importantly than very powerful Meriem vs international community has been fairly muted over the question of Palestine, but this proposal annexation has led to widespread contempt nation. Of course, the Palestinian Authority have rejected it. Ending Security Cooperation on saying that they would declare statehood if it happened next door Jordan have reacted angrily warning Israel massive complex. We are looking at this tremendous concern enjoyable, because it does not bode well for trying to get Israelis and Palestinians together, but also across the world, countries have expressed outrage. Almost fifty UN expert said that this would be a violation of international law risks offending more than a quarter of a century of international episodes. Of A future viable. State living in peace, security and mutual recognition with the state of Israel almost a thousand parliamentarians across Europe signed a letter strongly opposing plan. I'm Prime Minister Johnson here in the UK wrote an op-ed in an Israeli newspaper, urging Netanyahu to drop the plans. How significant is the outpouring? So it's significant a not very significance at the same time I think it is significant in that a lot. These representatives wouldn't have been so vocal in the past, but at the same time we have to keep in mind that they're speaking about the annexation right now in the Jordan Valley, but they don't speak about the historical violations that have happened against Stinian. Now no one's being held accountable for the unarmed civilians that were shot dead by Israeli military during Gaza protests Gaza. Health authorities say at least fifty five Palestinians died Monday during mass protests as the US officially opened its new embassy. In Jerusalem, you don't hear them speaking about the military detention of Palestinian, children in the West Bank as vocally and as explicitly as they are now. Why don't you think people have spoken out previously? It's easier to be vocal against Israel and trump presently when. When they're right-wing, sub promised. The and racism is a lot more blatant than it is. When an IT's more subtle more concealed to the international I I'm presumably is because we're talking about on accession, which is very very clearly a breach of international law, and is quite easy for politicians to say that it's wrong, but when Russia annexed Crimea, there was action Russia was expelled from the G. A.. That was sections. G. Think no be action here. If this goes ahead, it's it's truly. A moment of uncertainty right now because. Were trying to also put our hope in this semi shift in discourse in the international sphere that it will actually push accountability and real action in terms of sanctioning Israel in terms of holding it accountable for all of this, but at the same time these are all states that have de-legitimize. Things like the Palestinian divestment sanctions movement in their own state. We will stop public bodies from ticket themselves to boycott goods from other countries to develop their own pseudo foreign policy against countries, which nauseating frequency turns out to be Israel, but for places like the UK even Boris Johnson is saying this is a bad idea. This is Boris. Johnson I think they think it's a bad idea and condemning it not because it's a violation against Palestinians themselves, but because it is a defiance of them as powers and stakeholders of law worldwide..

It's one of the smallest passenger in cities, and it's actually one of the poorest. Because economy has always been agriculture and tourism and for a long time. Israelis kind of have really destroyed, both and so a lot of Palestinians, who are from Jacko ended up going to work in settlements. When you said that People Kinley settlements. What kind of work do today? It's quite tragic actually because a lot of the water sources, the spring water have been taken by Israelis until you have literally Israeli pumps that divert the water from the springs. Have Been Palestinian agricultural land for centuries into settlements, and so a lot of the Palestinians who used to work on the farm show on the farms can no longer do so so they end up going to the farm next door, Israeli settlement farm, and working on it. It's the only source of income they can find. If you drive around the Jordan Valley around Jack, will you see the Palestinian?

"A production of iheartradio. Hey y'all it's Eve's again and welcome to another episode of This Day in History Class. I am still at home recording from my closet so if I sound any different than that is why. But the history doesn't end so let's get on with the show. Today is March twenty. First Twenty twenty. The day was March. Twenty first nineteen eighty three the first wave of cases the West Bank. Fainting epidemic began in the town of Arba epidemic lasted until early April in the end researchers determined that it was likely triggered by psychological factors on the morning of March twenty first a seventeen year old student at a girls school in Florida noted feeling throat irritation and difficulty breathing. She also felt dizziness and abdominal pain over the next couple of hours. More students in other classes and a teacher began experiencing similar symptoms. Some of the students reported smelling rotten eggs. When public health officials arrived at the school? They figured that toxic gas was the culprit but none was found and doctors could not determine the cause of their symptoms. The school was closed but more people fell ill over the next few days by March twenty six. The illness had spread to the town of Janine in northern West Bank and surrounding villages though most of the cases occurred among female students some also occurred among Israeli Defence Force soldiers. Dozens of people were admitted to the hospital with residents reporting seeing a car. That was emitting a thick cloud of smoke. A third wave of the epidemic occurred on April third mostly around the city of Hebron in the West Bank. This wave spread quickly with most students. Seeing symptoms within a couple of hours students and some soldiers were affected by headaches and blurred vision in addition to the abdominal pains and dizziness after these outbreaks schools were closed and no more people reported being affected by the epidemic. All in all there were more than nine hundred forty people who fell ill during the epidemic to figure out it's 'cause researchers took air samples from ascites analyzed them they also took soil and dust samples and analyze suspicious substances found such as powders but they did not find any consistent patterns of environmental toxins throughout the epidemic the press reported on an album outbreaks. The media played a role in escalating fear and suspicion surrounding the epidemic. Some people suggested that those affected had been poisoned by some mysterious agent. Rumors circulated among the Arab population regarding the reasons behind the suspected poisonings and April Fourth New York. Times article set that quote. Palestinian leaders have accused Israeli settlers officials of using chemical warfare in West Bank schools to drive Arabs out of the area or to sterilize Arab curls it also said that Israeli officials accused radical Palestinians of using gas or chemicals to stir up demonstrations but in the end researchers concluded that the cause of the epidemic was psychological though there may have been low levels of an environmental toxin present. Initially they said that the effects of epidemic were heightened by anxiety and stress reports on a toxic gas being the cause also likely contributed to the epidemic spread. There was no evidence that reports of symptoms during the epidemic. Were made up. I'm East Jeffcoat and hopefully you know a little more about history today than you did yesterday.

"west bank" Discussed on The Last American Vagabond
"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.

"You can't believe anything's Jerry Jones saying likewise the CDC has been up to a AW research the golden testing of offensive biological weapons up to their eyeballs. Going at least back to the early days of the Reagan administration instauration up these. CDC At American a culture collection said forty shipments of weapons specific file logical agents to Saddam Hussein of Iraq during the Iraq. Iran wards in the L. connects attention. That's on saying would weaponize and off against shrimp. Well think about how crazy this is though you. These are things that are very easy to find and look up the reality that they gave Saddam Hussein. You know all kinds of chemical weapons. Didn't they were used on right. And then at the same time we pretend like that's outrageous outrageous in red lion. Everyone no but it doesn't matter when the US government uses against their adversaries or when Israel or anybody else work with us as white phosphorus or any other kinds of things that are happening regularly regularly right. This wasn't that long ago right. This is at the same time they were using the excuse against other people that they were using chemical weapons but it was happening right in front of us in addition into that. He's talking about bio weapons that they're using and giving to Saddam Hussein. I mean this is never stopped. Ladies and gentlemen this has always been happening. And it's all it's continuing now. That's why I think it's so ridiculous we can pretend like. It's not possible that this was some kind of an effort either joint or individual quite ridiculous. Let's listen to that. Again of offense involve biological weapons up to their eyeballs. Going at least back to the in in work And the WTO is working hand in glove with the Chinese government. Disseminating Chinese government propaganda ECORSE. Oh sorry went back to for. CDC has been up to of research development testing of offense savall biological weapons to their eyeballs. Going at least back to the early days of the Reagan administration win up the CDC Z.. At American type of culture collection sent forty shipments of weapons. Specific biological struggle agents to Saad Hussein off in Iraq during Iraq-iran War in the hall connects occasion. That's on Hussein would weaponized them and used against rain well. What happened was after that Iraq was over? US troops were neither blew up these facilities contaminated themselves With our own biological warfare agents. which shop has as a contributing factor to the goals launched out? That's crazy understand what he's suggesting right there that this is the idea that these biological illogical weapons that they gave to Iraq to use against Iran. Weekly then later blew up because they were trying to cover up sort of the same thing. They're trying to do an Lib right. Now get rid of the evidence of what they have been doing there. And then he suggesting that in and of itself the blowing up that his biological weapons was to some degree responsible for Gulf War Syndrome. I mean there's no end to these he's ties. There's no end to the idea. Go as far back as you go. It seems you can fine ties to some kind of malicious activity. It's unreal and it. Looks like as Jerry Rian Bill or both pointing out in the chat. 'cause they watch my past show. Don't forget we just talked about this. The project for new American Century outlines very clearly the idea that biological weapons ethnically focused would be a good political tool glad. People are watching the show. It's good to see this is something that not be after. Remember this. You'RE GONNA and it's good to get these shared because right we're talking about this from show to show to show people don't always get all the information. But this is it's been documented outlined are this has been planned and been written down and been seen to fruition for a very very very long time. Think about how disgusting that is talking about the war that also killed five hundred thousand children people that are continuing to suffer from depleted the uranium rounds in Iraq right and on top of that they display exploded the whole bunch of biological weapons in their country that actually affected Americans on the way back but think about about what it's doing to the country still right now if I mean let's just say at the moment after it happened until it dissipated I guess I'm not sure how long that would maybe it will. Maybe it still be there. But that's really disgusting to think about. It's a horrifying thing I mean. These are bombshell information again. That expert in his field like this if this guy was was saying what they wanted him to say he overseeing any Fox News just like always but the moment you challenge the narrative. You get excommunicated. Doesn't matter about the data with our own biological agents which show has a a contributing factor to the Gulf War Syndrome Solo. You can't believe anything the CDC SAYING NIH has been up towards. I also all routes stop on king function of Biowarfare Diane to song. You just can't believe these in just in in case you're missing all these abbreviations right. These are all these official groups right. The National Institution of health all these groups that are being used and and put forward as our safety net are in fact all the people who are deeply invested in this biological warfare agenda in and get that doesn't necess- it doesn't have to imply that they are doing it for some kind of nefarious you. You know weapons program at some level. They may just be to make money right. Obviously the vaccine companies. That's all they see but nonetheless. They're all tied up within in complicity and willing to ignore what's obviously being used from this Jessica can make a dollar whereas obviously there are people invested in this that have far more nefarious reassigned sinister agendas as we see playing out right in front of us. Vice is of knock people are going to have to go out and and for themselves or the Internet out with alternative sources of information. Which is why? I'm I'll give you the standard and so it looks like I don't know what's going on with the Stream. It doesn't seem like it's cutting out on my end but everyone's seemingly seemingly saying in the Stream is down some saying too bad about the stream. I'll see you all later. I told you guys I'm telling you this is this is going to be the way. It is the more that we grow the more that we reach each people. The more information we share the more these things will continue to happen the more censorship and suppression and manipulation and look can't we can't pretend this ridiculous today I mean this isn't they're open. Legislated video remove their openly censoring openly. Right fake news and hate speech means anything they want it to mean so just remember that it just this is going to continue but also remember that. I'm not going to go away. They can remove everything I possibly have if it comes down to. I'll go on my own radio station and do I will never never stopped bringing this information to you but they will absolutely continue to censor so just remember that but people back and forth people saying it's here it's there it's everywhere there but I'll give it a minute to refresh. Everybody can get back on the page. So let's keep going. I almost going to guarantee that this video probably won't even stay up anyway just because I mean here's what's even more ridiculous if the video doesn't get removed that's even more stupid. Come talking about the exact same thing. They just removed right but here. This is going to be a harder. Wonder Moot remove because we're laying this out in plain detail his history his experience who the person is and why he's saying what he is and simply reporting on the man saying this right and that's reportable but it'll probably get moved anyway mental just simply make our point for us all right. Seems like everyone's back. Let's keep going. I wrote off Yang here. Here's before he gets into this. This is an interesting part of the discussion because this is something that was very quickly dismissed dismissed by everybody right and the point is their argument. was that it was for a vaccine right. And that's that's the same thing we report because that's not a lie but when and this this is where they play lay on the lack of understanding of these things that the average people and then of course you get the special prowls out there that are that know about this stuff but then go out and gaslight people into thinking that they're wrong the idea here. Is that this person again. An expert on this topic is coming out and telling you about you. Know what this ultimately means and you'll see won't say it right before he says it but the point is the discussion about these patents are very relevant now understand first of all as we pointed out before that the corona virus itself is you know there's there's multiple strains of this including the common cold and all kinds of different things so this is has been discussed in patent in research for a long time but this one is discussing won't let let you see what he has to say. We'll come back to it..

I met my boyfriend at work because I've got rejected as a teenager. Basically, I just decided that you know, well, I'm just gonna have to. I'm going to have to be okay with me. Otherwise I'm just going to end up being rejected later. If I pretend to be someone else, I can't be both to keep up the game on. It's it's why I don't West Bank's. Why don't wanna browse.

Don't wear a lot of make up when I'm going out with boys trying to make sure that they know who I am so I'm not gonna have to keep up something a messy from the star. I bring flows out straight away so that you get to decide because of the way we all used car salesman in relationships or human beings where we show the best version of ourselves for year and it would go keep that up. It's very right to be yourself the best version of yourself that you intend to be in a realistic way, but. Yourself. So also don't wear spanks. I don't understand them.

It feels like so much work to get to know someone like on inap- and then meet them and then be like, this doesn't work. I guess I'll sleep with you anyway and then be like, this wasn't good. This didn't fulfil anything but but online dating is just is the worst. It is the worst. I, especially if a busy people and and is kind of cool that you get to meet people, you wouldn't otherwise me and then Los Angeles walking around the streets bumping into people, you know, going to blow coffeeshops very in particular, do understand that. But it is just this menu of genitals and lazy because they have the sense of too much choices. Why we stopped watching TV is because we had too many channels and you know, we just stopped committing things. We stop. Sitting down and we stopped having a sense of ceremony. You know, there's just we we, we are not good with too much choice. This too much choice and you just swipe and it so deposited is and it's based on on your like you often don't even look through the second or third or fourth pitcher. You see the first picture and you make an snap decision that has noth- no sense of context or or anything to do with that person. And there's no, you can't get a fair Ramona vibe from someone which you get this meeting someone in walking, pass them having a small interaction, a traffic light. And so I think that online dating anyway is the worst and a really hallway to gauge raid people..
