What sets Trump's Mideast peace plan apart from previous proposals?
"The trump brings out this peace plan yesterday is this plan is effectively very simple basically get knowledges realities on the ground that's what this from Middle East peace plan is that what you're hearing from the media today is that trump has changed the game in the Middle East that from his abandon prospects for peace when what to wear is about this is the prospects for peace have stopped all wounds the reason they have stock always in the Middle East is because you have one side that would like to white the other side off of the map now a lot of prospects for peace over there in order to understand the Middle East conflict what you have to understand is one very simple truth Israel has accepted every piece offer that has ever been put in front of it and every single piece offer has been rejected by the Palestinians and the Arab world generally back in nineteen seventeen when the ball for declaration was first promulgated that said there would be Jewish national home in Palestine meeting now will be Jordan as well as Israel when that was first put out there the Jews immediately accepted the herbs turned it down and when people talk about this vast territory for the Jews get let let's be real about this there's some fifty eight Arab and Muslim countries on planet earth Arab or Muslim countries on planet earth all the Arab countries are all Muslim country there is one Jewish state I'm plant earth it is tiny Israel is something like fifteen thousand square miles is extraordinarily small Israel is half the size of New Jersey in a region that is extraordinarily large so the idea of a Jewish national home there not only is not any sort of giant cram down on the on the Arab population it is eight eight eight tiny percentage of the total land mass in the area and of course Jews have never stop living there there is a historic Jewish tie to the land of Israel but the reason I'm going back in history is you need to understand why it is the pieces never happen there and then because of the Jews okay so the Jews were originally told by the British Mandate by the British they're going to get Jordan as well as Israel okay then sliced off Jordan then they slice off half of Israel are they sliced away most of today and Samaria they sliced away half of Jerusalem it's like the way the Gaza Strip and then did you accepted that you like okay the U. N. says that Israel can be a state jurors will be an open international city right under the tutelage of the west right will not be in fact owned by the Jews are owned by the Arabs will be under the tutelage of the United Nations whatever is real touch that deal except it right granted an indefensible rum state in the borders in nineteen forty seven Israel accepted and the Arabs rejected has been termed by people living in Israel be out of its borders because they're completely indefensible completely understand how small Israel is you have to understand the borders before nineteen sixty seven included an area of Israel that is nine miles wide okay the distance from our office to the Santa Monica beach and that is the distance and and without traffic okay for without traffic you can travel the with of Israel with a bit of the state of Israel you can travel that without traffic in four in forty seven forty at worst you can travel that in under fifteen minutes and that is the worst in the entire country in that particular area if you've never been is really don't understand the geography you don't actually understand what's going on and understand how closely everything is packed together okay so Israel accepts that and the Arabs rejected and they declare war the Saudis the Jordanians the Egyptians the Syrians they all declare war on this new state the British were very much afraid of taking off the air is because they didn't want to drive the Arabs in the arms of the chair of the Soviet Union they refuse to allow Jews to emigrate to British Mandate Palestine so during the world during World War two as the Holocaust is happening the British mandated preventing Jews from moving in specifically because they don't want to take off the Arabs in the area the Jews largely go along with that Ben Gurion largely goes along with that in the interest of venture we getting state the state is finally granted by the United Nations and once that happens the user like okay fine I guess we'll just accept it okay if I like okay good at least we have a place to go at least now there is a Jewish national home and everything now okay this is when all of Japan's Maria Andrews wasn't international control and the Gaza Strip all of that is delegated to the Arabs who had pre sixty seven borders and say no and they want you in an isolation attack on the state of Israel and Israel fights back in the early stages of that of that war Arabs are urged by the Arab leadership to flee the area specifically because they're supposed to get out of the way of the onrushing Arab armies are gonna come in and crush the Jews and so they they're so hundred thousand Palestinian Arabs for living in the in the British Mandate Palestine in the Jewish area of what will be the the Israeli state of Palestine the the Israeli area Palestine hundred thousand arms fully he then as the war progresses it turns out that a lot of the Arab villages are actually if columns operating on behalf of the Arab armies which is exactly what you would expect because this is an ethnic conflict Hey the the Arabs are using these as bases of attack against the Jews they're cutting off supply lines supply rolled and the and the Israelis put in place some called operation dollar which says we are not going to lock down our tiny army in guarding these villages that are effectively in many cases a fifth column instead we're going to tell people that they need to leave these villages and move over to the Arab side okay now remember when the state of Israel was declared the state of Israel declaration of independence urges the Arab citizens to stay to stay here be part of the part of the work that we are doing be part of the state Ben Gurion didn't understand why the Arabs are fleeing using you can live here what's the problem she's lived as minority in Arab countries for thousands of years why exactly should there not be one Jewish state where Arabs are a minority and the assumption on the part of the Israeli leadership is that as all the Jews flowed into Israel from the other Arab countries and from Europe that that would become minority population more minority population their population okay sell people flee and then the Israeli army in the second wave is fighting these battles in in the middle of war there's always population term well people always leave to get out of the way I'm on rushing battles and the Israeli army can't afford to be locked down pin down transitive van insurgent campaigns in certain villages into the clear the population out okay so after the war ends there now something like for it anywhere from four hundred to seven hundred thousand Palestinian refugees at the same exact time nearly the same number of Jews are expelled from Arab countries around the region of ever talk about this right like the reason that there's so many Moroccan Jews who live in Israel the reason there's so many Iranian Jews living in Israel the reason there's so many Syrian Jews living in Israel is because at the time of the Israeli sounding seven hundred thousand Jews were expelled from the surrounding Arab countries and Israel took all of them in all of them it'll take all of them and with no international help he normally the U. N. helped fund the placement of refugees in new places no help at all Israel takes all of them in the Arab states instead of absorbing these populations into the general population decides that they're going to keep these populations refugees so the first movie is we are not going to actually allow them to return to the state of Israel when I can allow them to move back to division because that would be acknowledging that we lost the war and that they would have to then be Israeli citizens then very quickly within about a year the Arab leadership says you know great if we could infiltrate the state of Israel with a bunch of people who are on our side one of his state of Israel destroyed at that point the Israelis like well guess what we are not letting people in back into the state when they fled their homes were not letting them back in just to stand in favor of the destruction of the state is not never in human history has been the obligation of a of a state that was declared war on by its surrounding population to take in large numbers of members of people who are trying to destroy the state from within that has never been anything okay in in the aftermath of everywhere they're refugees the idea of resettlement of the refugees back in their original homes has never really been a thing either in fact is in the aftermath of World War two there were huge population transfers all over Europe they're in the aftermath of the of the declaration of the division of Pakistan and India there were tens of millions of people who are refugees and they were taken in by their countries and they did is that Indians live in India and Muslims live in Pakistan and the specific area where there is no separation cashmere has been a hot spot ever since but there's never been any call for less sixty years for all of the Indians were expelled from Pakistan and left Pakistan to have their original homes back in Pakistan right is never been negotiation point the Palestinians then are used as a tool by the Arab world to club Israel into submission and their use as an excuse to claim that Israel ought to be is right this is the so called right of return it's a great book on this at recommended yesterday called the war for turn by a couple of the leftist Israelis one was a former labor MK member of Knesset and one of them is journalist hearts okay so I'm just explaining history because it you're not going to stand from fees plan until you understand okay so there's never been anything internationally that says the Jews cannot live in Judean Samaria it's a ridiculous suggestion the notion that it is somehow a violation of international law for the Jews who won a defensive war in nineteen forty to settle in the areas they want is upset it's absurd okay in nineteen sixty four the Arabs still have yes merry on Gaza Egypt is in the Gaza Strip but has not an exit specifically because it does not actually want the Palestinian population absorbed into the Egyptian population density area have not been annexed by Jordan right they've not been technically annexed by Jordan for the exact same reason but Jordan is ruling intraday and Samaria Hey this is a so the notion that Israel was always ruling all of these errors all is just not historically true the Palestine Liberation Organization which is Yasser Arafat's organization now the Palestinian authority which rules the Palestinian areas in the west bank an area act the Palestinian authority effectively is founded in nineteen sixty four now you might notice something on the time line here nineteen sixty four is before nineteen sixty seven in nineteen sixty four the Arabs are talking about the liberation of Palestine at that point Jerusalem is split the Jordanians are in control of the old city of Jerusalem they've banned all Jews mentoring the old city of Jerusalem they discriminate against Christians in the old city of Jerusalem they build barbed wire fences around Jerusalem Hey they already control Judea and Samaria Egypt controls the Gaza Strip and yet there's something called the Palestine Liberation Organization weird what exactly are they seeking to liberate make very clear in their charter what exactly they're seeking to liberate every square inch of territory between the Jordan River in the Mediterranean Sea in other words the murder of every Jew in that region and the ethnic cleansing of Jews from that region a second Holocaust get a made this clear since nineteen sixty four in the nineteen sixty seven war happens and all the Arab countries under the leadership of NASA in Egypt decide to mobilize against the Israelis they decide they're going to want to second war every time shin against the Israelis and the Israelis get wind of this and the Israelis
Why is Aung San Suu Kyi at the International Court of Justice
"Awarding someone the Nobel Prize for peace is always tempting. Fate saw cha the vagaries of human affairs. Yesterday's warmonger is tomorrow's peacemaker and vice versa. That it's not really the Norwegian Nobel Committees Fault when Pulse Charity Makes Mockery of some of their judgements. When you give a piece Gong to someone like Henry Kissinger oh Yasser Arafat? It's just a risk you run. And it is nevertheless startling to see an actual Nobel peace laureate appearing at the International Court of Justice in The Hague to defend the government they lead against allegations of genocide. It's pretty much the one thing that isn't supposed to happen. History had given us the opportunity to give up our best just for a cause in which we believed when the Nobel Committee chose to honor me. The road had chosen of my own free will aw became less lonely path to follow sang suci daughter of the founder of modern Myanmar Aung San and a formidable politician diplomat and and activist in her own. Right won the Nobel Peace Prize in Nineteen ninety-one at the time she was rivaled only by Nelson Mandela as a universally admired Royat. Avatar of all. That was good displaying exemplary courage in resisting. All that was bad. She led the National League for Democracy as it faced down only terrifying and ruthless military GIONTA which had turned Myanma into North Korea with Palm. Trees saying SUCI spent most of the period between Nineteen nineteen ninety nine and two thousand and ten under house arrest. She was a hero aside from the Nobel Peace Prize. She was awarded the Sakharov Prize. US Congressional Channel Gold Medal and Presidential Medal of freedom an honorary order of Australia. Honorary Citizenship of Canada and Amnesty International's ambassador of conscience since award. Luke pestle made a film about her. U2 wrote a song about and in time she triumphed the NLD won a landslide election victory in two thousand and fifteen though denied the presidency on a technicality. She became state councillor effectively. Myanmar's prime minister it. It was hailed worldwide as a victory for decency determination and patience and now she's denying that she is some kind of an accessory to crimes against humanity he sang Succi has been fair to say on a journey. These ban mind this complex situation and the challenge to sovereignty and security already in our country when you're assessing the intent of those who attempted to deal with the rebellion. Surely under the circumstances genocidal decider intent cannot be only hypothesis loan and it is important to be clear that while Aung Sang. SUCCI is in The Hague. She is not in the dark. She is appearing voluntarily and has not been charged with any crime the allegation before the ICJ EJ is against her country. Not Her the case has been brought by the Gambia. Backed by the fifty-seven members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Asian a coterie which includes several nations who might want to pause before mounting their high horses where human rights are concerned. The allegation is essentially essentially that Myanmar's recent persecution of the Hindu people Myanmar's Muslim minority. Who lived mostly in the country's raccoon state amounts to genocide this? This is a term with specific legal meanings and it will be for the court to determine if events in Myanmar meet the threshold. What is known is bad enough? Enough since two thousand and sixteen perhaps a million ranger have fled Myanmar mostly to neighboring Bangladesh journalists NGOs and the UN win have reported a consistent pattern of atrocious violence much of it directed at civilians not excluding children Myanmar's military known as has the top Madore have consistently claimed that they are waging a counter insurgency against Islamist terrorists though Sang Suci does not directly command the Tatmadaw. Aw this is also the line that she has held. The most sympathetic imaginable interpretation of aren't sang Suu Cheese behavior. And it's a reach is that that she is still in some respects the prisoner of the same military which once held her under house arrest. She may have calculated. This is a compromise. She has to to make to maintain such democracy as me unmanned now has that if she takes hold in the military the military will once again take charge of the country. This is a question unlikely to interest the hundreds of thousands over hinge in now wondering if they'll ever be able to go home again and they of course are the ones who have have survived the Tatmadaw's pogroms justice for the victims. If it is coming at all maybe years away
Israelis vote in repeat election centered on PM Netanyahu
"Get but let's talk for a second that Israel's election self coming up in the next forty eight hours is Israel's second election within like six months or eight months. according to Reuters Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu stepped up a bit for far right votes two days before a closely contested election convening his cabinet in the occupied west bank and having it approved legal status for an unauthorized outpost okay first of all there's nothing under international law that says that Israel is barred from building in the so called west bank intraday and Samaria those are at best a disputed territories Netanyahu's caretaker government met on Sunday in the Jordan Valley a largely agricultural area which announced on Tuesday he tends to annex if he wins a fifth term Israeli cabinet verily held sessions in the west bank now in reality so is that a bit of an election gambit of course it is but is it illegal now I not only is it not illegal his opponents in the same exact rates are celebrating the fact that Netanyahu is talking about doing something with regard to the Jordan Valley the Jordan Valley easy strategically important area for Israel and always has been and this bizarre notion that Netanyahu is annexing the territory as opposed to applying Israeli sovereignty annexation and applying Israeli sovereignty are not the same thing. is gonna Mitchell bard who writes about the sort of stuff just Netanyahu statement was widely misreported as calling for annexation of the territory but he chose words carefully. he said applying sovereignty which Ariel David ten of the federalist nodes has a different meaning a nation cannot annex land over which already has sovereign claims meaning that it's not that this land is owned by the Palestinians and never was owned by the Palestinians this land is owned by the Jordanians was lost in a war and then Israel to get over. as with other issues related to the status of the disputed territories is as much a part the wisdom of such a move may be debated however it is important to know some of the facts about the Jordan Valley that there were settlements in the Jordan Valley dating all the way back to nineteen sixty seven then any prospective peace deal those areas would end up in Jewish territory it's talk a being who is the sponsor of the Oslo Accords also wanted those areas to be under Israeli control because the Jordan Valley has to be under Israeli control or the Jordan River could be cut off from Israel's population. it is also true as I say that the blue and white party Netanyahu's chief opponent in this election actually support him. according to the according to an interview in The New York Times the blue and white party supports his basic idea here early in the Jerusalem post they say the blue white party said was pleased to see he was adopting and would like to plan for recognizing the Jordan Valley so the international media trying to turn the Israeli election into a referendum on Netanyahu Netanyahu is the obstacle to peace of only we got rid of Netanyahu everything would be all better and they've had it out for Netanyahu since Brock about the headed out for Netanyahu and Barak Obama headed out for anything because you want to see a widely reshape Middle East in which Israel's influence was diminished in which runs influence was maximized. no one was not he was not lying about this is pretty obvious he kept talking about Ron being a well respected regional power and how he saw the Israel Palestinian issue as one of the key wheels to turn in order to achieve some sort of balance of power in the Middle East now as we've seen that alternate out the dental turned out to be a bunch of nonsense the fact is that Israel and Palestinians have nothing to do with the broader Middle East Israel has made no concessions to the Palestinian authority over the last several years nor should day and yet war has not really broken out there specifically because the Saudis are not interested in backing the Palestinians neither are the Jordanians neither are the Egyptians the only people who are interested in pushing Palestinian terrorist aspirations are exactly the sorts of groups the back terrace in the first place for talking of the Turkish government we talk about the Iranian government. in any case. writer suggest at this new meeting the government announced it had approved Netanyahu's proposal to turn the outpost above all get a call into a formal settlements twenty years after he was stabilised as a farming community in the Jordan Valley without state sanction. then require state sanctioned by the way in public remarks of the session Netanyahu said it would be up to the government formed after Tuesday's election to grant final approval. now according to the according to Reuters this is all about how brutal Netanyahu is appealing to far right voters in the cruise on supporters to turn out in large numbers meeting Yahoo has been portraying himself as being in lockstep with ultra nationalist of retaining west bank land through annexation. well no that was always we could plan from the good platform was that Israel would retain an enormous amount of the Jewish settlement activity in any peace deal but what it is also the perspective a blue and white. it's amazing to watch as the media got an attempt to turn it in Yahoo into the villain here as opposed to the reality the peace deal died a long time ago it died because the Palestinians refused no less than four or five times any effort at peace. refuse the original Oslo Accords and they refused a deal tried to cut by Bill Clinton in two thousand between Ehud Barak and Yasser Arafat Arafat walked away from the table and started intifada there's an attempt at peace deal by Arial Sharon that was bought out by the Palestinians who own their tried one that was blocked out by the Palestinians. Netanyahu himself in his first go round in the nineties signed over eighty percent of your day and Samaria. in the in the wye river accords but always the problem for the media is that Israel is two intransigent not that its opponents are terrorists. which is the real problem here. opinion polls right now so that we could and its main challenger the centrist blue and white party are running neck and neck. there is no real division on on these issues now blue and white may approach this more slowly and maybe this is an election gambit again the this bizarre idea that your going to be able to cut a different foreign policy of blue and white is not for now the election polls are showing this thing very very close the latest election polls the way that it works in Israel is there are a variety of parties they get elected to Knesset you have to have at least four seats to sit in the Knesset which is a hundred twenty seats I need to form a majority by putting together a coalition now last time Netanyahu did have enough for a majority the problem was a big door Lieberman who leads one of the parties the S. Robitaille party. refused to join the coalition without burning some concessions from it you know how to knit in Yahoo simply call the new election it looks like the results are gonna be pretty similar right now blue and white are neck and neck with we could but the other parties that would side with Netanyahu in the elections are winning more seats so you mean which is the the sort of right wing alternative to Likud is supposed to win anywhere between seven and ten seats in the in the various polls labor has turned into a non party which is unbelievable I labor used to be the the other major party in Israel all the way up until about nineteen eighty with the election not Megan labor had every prime minister of Israel and now they are winning forty six seats in the selection which is truly incredible. so we will see how this ends up. if you had to lay odds right now you would suggest an attorney who probably retains the prime ministership and that again is not because the people of Israel have fallen for Tierney or anything like that that's because everyone in Israel agrees on security and they know at this point that regardless of whether they nominate Netanyahu to lead the government or whether they nominate any guns to lead the government that security is only going to be assured by taking a strong stance against terrorism and by refusing to make deals with the Palestinian authority nonetheless there is this bizarre notion in the media that whenever there's an impasse in the Middle East the only liberal democracy in the area is involved in a long piece in The Washington Post today by Robert Kagan it's a truly egregious these. Israel and the decline of the liberal order. did it really it's it's quite disgusting piece. and the idea is that BB Netanyahu siding with the nationalists as opposed to liberal internationalist and it really it would be in Israel's best interest if they would just side with a liberal internationalist like France and Germany there's only one problem those are precisely the states that had some of the worst anti semitism problems in Europe Jews are fleeing their on mass those are also the governments that are. trying to make concessions to the Iranians as the Iranians open the call for the extermination of every Jew in the region is unbelievable but this have media going to cover this thing anything yeah who's the bad guy by the way as I say there a lot of people I know on the right who don't want to Yahoo to be prime minister anymore they want any guns suggested that the media will recognize that this is not anything Yahoo problem this is the rest of the world just like in Israel and that's the

"Five zero five four six two six and Sharon in crane, Missouri joins us alot. Sharon and good evening. Gin and Hello, Dr Gorka, I have two comments become make why saying tired of Israel being bashed every time. I turn around because Israel came to the peace table. With Yasser Arafat and Yasser Arafat not had the courage to be his people. Israel. Every state said we will give you everything that you're asking, and he would not risk his own personal safety for his nation. Economy. Man in this country. Understands that there are times you have to fight. And that is something that the bubble ramp elitist. Unfortunately, coming out of a lot of our universities will never understand because they don't look at the people who do the fighting as being fall that words, and that's all I've got to say, well, that's a mouthful certainly Sharon your thoughts, Dr Gorka. She's absolutely right it, but it wasn't a lack of courage on behalf of Yasser. I about the man was incredibly corrupt. He didn't want peace because for him the conflict was the source of money the extorted money from the west extorted money from those who wished to maintain the conflict with Israel. He died a multi multi multi multimillionaire with houses in France. And elsewhere. So, you know, the the the reality is one side in this process is not acting in good faith, and the Trump administration, Jared Kushner, others have has finally realized that it's impossible to make peace with those who don't want peace. So yes, I I completely agree with your caller. And in addition to that, we should know to that faced with the actual prospect of really leading a free Palestine Yasser Arafat was much happier making fiery speeches to the Arab League than worrying about. Fixing potholes in Gaza. So that's another factor to keep in mind there. Michael calls in from Montreal tonight. Good evening, Michael. Fraternity my friends up here in Canada. They say why are you always interested in the American politics? So I said, well, I think my freedoms. With a high regard. I appreciate them so much and it's true, the the work of the military and the United States, and this is what I have. So this is why I think his book is right on topic on topic. The other thing is is I also appreciated Donald Trump being the only candidate that was facing the Chinese, isn't it right off the Gorka. They have a white paper that by by forty nine. They want to spread communism throughout the world. Yeah. So I I write about this at length and why we fight of all the threats that we face today. We'll we'll deal with all of them were dealing with ISIS with dealing with. Both Korea will also deal with Iran or get Russia back in its box. But of all the threats that we face the only one that is truly strategic in nature that is trying to China has a plan all of your listeners can can look it up right now just gone to your favorite search engine and type in one belt one one road. And that is the plan of the current leadership in China to displace America by the one hundred first of the Chinese revolution in twenty forty nine. They wish to become the most powerful nation in the world, which means deposing the United States, and then not shy of of the things that doing militarily with economics with intelligence to get to that pole position. But the good news. Is is we gave the president a handful of classified briefings on the president is fully aware of the threat of China poses. One eight six six five zero JIMBO is talk to Nick who calls in from Des Moines tonight with Dr Sebastian Gorka. Hello, nick. Hello. Thank you very much for taking my call tonight. I love to pick your brain on a hundred topics but to be fair one that's really curious about. So we always feel like we're fighting a twenty five year old fall within the millennial category. But I look at the Middle East and a great example. I wanna talk about Saudi Arabia, and that they are are. I would I would call it most Islamic reputation the Middle East that is a close ally with us, but how can we square Donald Trump? It seems almost be pandering to the crown prince in agreeing that it could have been rogue agents with Saudi Arabia, clearly contradicting lied on this. I mean, I feel like we have to grow an ally in the Middle East, and unfortunately, Israel can't really bring that power. But how do we try and I weighed Saudi Arabia's to help us with the situation or can't do you have to step away from the entire area? And let it fester which doesn't seem to be a proper solution thoughts on that. Sure. I'm sure Dr not in favor of complete isolation is. Awesome is an option, Dr Gorka. No, I never worked. It didn't work in nineteen forty one with Lauber and it didn't work on September eleventh two thousand one. So what does the president do the president's doing it right now? He's sending one of his toughest guys. His cabinet secretary Pompeo first in his class at West Point, former director, the CIA currently sexual state is sending Pompeo to Saudi Arabia to find the fact and to play hard ball with the Saudis so nobody's going to make concessions. If this is true, if this regime has assassinated one of its citizens for political reasons Justice, it's turning the president that it's reforming itself. There will be consequences for Saudi Arabia on the relationship will suffer. So I I have no no problems with the way the president is dealing with this now, but let let let Mike Pompeo do his thing. And then we'll find out what the truth is. Fair enough and more calls to come more from his book. Dr Sebastian.
President Trump, Trump and Brenda Lopez discussed on All Things Considered
"Election day is less than eight weeks away. But in a midterm year majority of voters don't cast a ballot and particular young people are far less likely to vote than older people in the last midterm election. Only about twenty percent of voters underaged thirty showed up at the polls NPR's Muhammad has been exploring why so many people sit out elections in America and has this report from Nevada in the two thousand fourteen election the area around the Las Vegas strip. Which is Nevada's first congressional district had one of the worst youth voter turnout rates in the country less than five percent of eighteen to twenty nine year olds voted that's according to estimates. From Tufts University, Brenda Lopez was one of those non voters the day, we met she left. Her house at five thirty in the morning for a job at an armored cash handling company by the time, she gets back home the home. She shares with her parents, grandma siblings. Her husband and her daughter. She is exhausted. It's not easy. You know, being being mom in Hawaii having to cook. And still trying to. Keep up with work and school. And I feel like I have no time for myself. Lopez is twenty six and she's not registered to vote. One of the main reasons why haven't voted is. Because I feel that. I'm always too busy. Lopez doesn't like how President Trump talks about immigrants. She would love better healthcare Medicaid. She says was a godsend when she was pregnant. But even if she registers she's not sure who she would vote for many young people like Lopez feel they haven't learned enough about American politics in high school. And so like Twenty-three-year-old Shelby. Maybe they don't see the point in voting. Maybe this is a stocky blond marine corvette taking a mandatory political science class at a community college in Vegas. I've never voted before from what I know about voting shop so whole place, and you hope I don't know what I need to bring. I don't even know what happens during their a recent survey of working class youth found that nearly twenty percent say they don't think they know enough to vote as for how and where to vote that can be found with an internet search, but for Mavis. It's not just about education. It's about location. He grew up in Missouri. That's where he registered to vote right now being away from home. I don't feel connected to the the political system here at all analysts say young people tend to move around a lot. And so they often feel less invested in local elections. They also want to choose individual candidates. Not just a party label many say they felt uninspired by both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen so like Jonas rand they

"To be really careful here number one it was portrayed in the media that these protests were about the embassy they weren't about the embassy you're right they coincided because there were about this third point and the other thing is a lot of the people there were not rioters they were protesters they were peaceful and the people that storm the fence had been some of them had been told that the fence was open and that the israeli soldiers had laid down their arms they were manipulated into storming it by hamas so i i really want to be sure to point out that the people that died were not necessarily violent the people that died were probably just as upset with their government as as we are an i don't know how the slaughter of these people is going to help make the case to the to the people themselves that they should do something about it i i guess maybe richner on the same page that you have to wonder what the you know right step forward is for any of this if we have two sides who's argument basically depends on demonizing the citizens of of gaza themselves and the media seems complicit in doing that but but it's it's not it's not just that it's also that you have this fundamental disconnect between the two sides about what the borders ought to be and so the part of the reason i it seems to me that you've had so many decades without without a resolution is that it's it's not usual to go so many decades after a war with with neither side acknowledging what the borders are that resulted from that war and i guess the question is what what does a sustainable permanent solution look like they're presumably at has to end up with the palestinians and the and the israelis recognizing the borders approximately where they are and i don't know how you get to that point well i think the palestinians have to give up the illusion that all the refugees from the nineteen forty eight war are going to go back to israel does just not going to happen but you you'd have any deal probably end up with roughly the borders that were discussed in the camp david accords network that deal is rejected by yasser arafat.
