My family really was formed in the united arab emirates and nineteen seventies. I was born there. And i do buy in the nineteen eighties. Maybe even into the nineteen nineties was kind of like one of those best kept secrets. It was boring in a good way. In the sense that it's that one place in this turbulent region where people could move and they could have a successful career and there was no instability around the united arab emirates. The results of news about you know things happening in iraq and iran but mostly on that side of the gulf things were quiet. My own family however came from a much. More turbulent history. My father was born shortly before the nineteen forty eight neka the exodus of palestinians from historical palestine. My mother herself was born diaspora in damascus.

Israel freezes plan to send vaccines to foreign allies
"The story coming out of israel this week. was That israeli journalists. Kelly cohen reported that israel's going to send one hundred thousand vaccines to nineteen nations around the world. Some of these nations announced that they were moving are had already moved embassies or missions to jerusalem honduras guatemala czech republic. There was no debate at all In the security cabinet no authorization by the justice. Minister of foreign minister and benny was the defense minister. And by the way interim justice minister said that thinks he's a running running kingdom and not a state by this decision obviously. Israel's already criticized for not making it a priority to vaccinate. The palestinians may talk a little bit more about that. But it isn't making us look better right this these one hundred thousand. Vaccinations being sent abroad. No i didn't think it is. Because i mean vaccine diplomacy which is a new thing now in our will. But he's a real thing you know with china india jostling with each other to distribute vaccines to win influence and goodwill in asia etc. You know united arab emirates is is giving vaccine to egypt. Obviously this is a thing to be doing. Russia trying to boost its profile. But the problem here is. It's very transparent. The israelis basically rewarding friends. You know that hungry set up. A trade mission in jerusalem or the republicans promised to do something similar and therefore because of that recognition Be wants to reward those countries Vaccine i mean it goes down well for the reason you know. Which is the story. A big story around the world is that israel is not accenting Its nearest neighbors and therefore misses something. I think about vaccine diplomacy well. Why don't we just talk about that. Because of course that has reached a new audience that notion of what israel's doing not doing vaccine right and it reached a new audience in you're referring to the snl clip that How shall you say this. Caused a bit of a ruckus this week. So let's listen in and talk a little bit more about reporting that the vaccinated half of their population. And i'm gonna guess it's the jewish half. I mean obviously you mentioned this. Jonathan about how if I think you said this one of the previous episodes if this was new zealand. We wouldn't be hearing at the end of the vaccination thing but because it's israel and it's politically charged. There's there's added complexity to the story. Yeah i mean you know you states say. The snl clip went viral jojo. Avars use that word to me. That was a big moment. Really because it's mainstream american comedy. If that is now it seems to me. There's a judgment there. Such a night live making the among its audience. There will be a perception as a more left wing. Frankly view of israel than i think would have been true a generation ago And you can make a joke like that sort of edgy but the the among kinda millennial snl audience who. Let's say you know. Revere alexandria ocasio cortez. The idea that israel is basically a little bit racist is a joke that lands without audience. That's what i think. Snl thinking there and just on the point about vaccine diplomacy. It seems to me that is the piece that's missing. Which is okay. You think you get a little bit of goodwill in hungary czech republic or whatever but actually what is noticed around the world and we can get into the arguments for and against is. The palestinians are not being vaccinated by israeli vaccine. And that's the big picture to the point where it took butter than snl joke.

"Newly established diplomatic ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates are having an effect. The U. A. E is welcoming thousands of Israelis President Trump's administration. Promoted these diplomatic ties as a historic breakthrough, which was true Israel had been isolated from many Arab nations for decades. Israel's leaders says the agreement proves that peace does not have to come at a cost. NPR's Daniel Estrin traveled to Dubai and the U. S a toe ask just what kind of peace is being promoted? It's not hard to spot Israeli tourists and devise busy gold market way. Silas are very noisy, and they understand us here. I feel no tour guide. Lisi is wearing a sequined shirt and a blue scarf around her strawberry red hair she poses for pictures with elaborate gold wedding garments in the window displays. Later, she'll ski at Dubai's famous indoor ski slope in Jordan. I don't know if I will feel like this Not in Egypt Way make fine here and next month I come again. Egypt and Jordan share a cold peace with Israel and most other Arab countries refuse relations with Israel, as long as Palestinians don't have independence, but the U A E. I gave Israelis what they have long sought. A sense of acceptance in the region were wanted in our country Don't feel wanted by the Arabs. And here they want me here. L a needs Ziegel Boy Wonder's Dubai Spice Market. With six friends, all elementary school teachers and Moratti's in the market are reluctant to speak on tape about their countries embrace of Israel, which is still controversial in the region. I asked the Israeli school teacher is this piece? I don't know if it's a real piece or not. I think that both countries have interest in this peace because we need them. They need us. The Israelis gain business opportunities. One Israeli I met, signed a deal to grow lettuce using pipes and the Emirati desert. And the Emma Ronnie's Get Israel's blessing to buy American made F 35 fighter jets, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco also normalized ties with Israel. And it was the U. S offering the incentives without concessions by Israel so long to watch a loom. Which alone middle. What's MMA Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promoted the U A e deal as peace for peace instead of the old paradigm land for peace. He says It sets a precedent. Israel doesn't need to give up land to the Palestinians to win friends in the Arab world. But I Moratti's still want Palestinians on their side U A e ambassador to the U S. You said fellow Taipeh. We still want to see a two state solution. We still want to see a negotiation between the two parties. Perhaps just perhaps we might be able to have more influence and more leverage when we do have a relationship with Israel. Emirati commentators say the love fest Israelis feel Just the honeymoon. Tough love will come later. But Israelis are seeing it more Netanyahu's way. Everybody by him from then a tourist to get just his first name to discuss his political views, says the Moratti's embrace proves Israel doesn't need to make sacrifices. Rather, it's the Palestinians who will feel pressured to follow their Arab brothers and make a deal with Israel. Even a prominent Israeli peace advocate returned from a trip to Dubai, saying, I think that the Palestinians need to rethink the way they treat Israel. Femi Paris The son of the late Israeli President Shimon Paris, runs the Paris Center for Peace that reaches out to Palestinians. He wants to promote business with the eh Moratti's and approach he wants Palestinians to adopt. I think Their point of view has being that's first sold the political issues and then we can start normalizing things and move forward. I think those days have gone. I believe that the only way for us to really, really achieve peace, comprehensive peace And save the region from backwardness is to focus on moving together forward. I put that to Nabil Shaath, adviser to the Palestinian president, He says. Palestinians can't just move forward and ignore their day to day realities is an occupying our land. Israel continues to Great second mints in our villages destroyed our houses. And yet It is legal had 23 is very better. Who is it? That should be doing what to whom the occupied the occupiers. Palestinians and many countries say real peace requires Israel to compromise land for peace. Shot says the U.

"Such a fuss over the murder of US journalist Jamal kashogi by agents of the Saudi government was killed in a Saudi consulate in Turkey one way that the US government has been considering trying to calm down the Turkish government about this murder is by giving turkeys. Authoritarian president the thing he wants most in the world from the United States wants the United States to hand over to him an exiled Turkish cleric was a legal permanent resident of the United States. He's lived in Pennsylvania for twenty years. Turkey's government blames this guy for an attempted coup in two thousand sixteen as well as everything else that has ever gone wrong and Turkey ever. It's a pretty good bet that nothing good would happen to him. If he were sent back to Turkey, and the United States government has rejected. Previous requests by Turkey to hand him over now, though, the Trump administration has reportedly been asking Justice. Department and other federal agencies about ways that we can maybe hand this guy over give them to Turkey in order to get Turkey to stop complaining about the murder of Jamal kashogi Jamak Shoghi lived in Virginia. He was a US resident he wrote for the Washington Post. He was a journalist here in the United States, why on earth with the United States be most concerned in the circumstance with shutting down criticism of the country that murdered him. Joining us. Now is Wendy Sherman? She's former under secretary of state for political affairs. One of America's top ranking diplomats. She's also the author of not for the faint of heart lessons, encourage power and persistence and master Sherman. It's great to have you here. Thank you for being to be here. Thank you. I understand as much as the next newspaper reader understands about this. Can you give us some insight into why the Trump administration might be doing what they're doing here? I think the Trump administration had this theory, and it went something like this. If we can create an alliance with Saudi Arabia. Israel, the United Arab Emirates. We can get together with Israel and make sure that we get a Middle East peace agreed Jared Kushner's famous plan that we're all waiting to see and we can all work together to push a Ron back out of the region. After all I did with Saudis wanted me to do what Israel wanted me to do. I got rid of that bad Obama Iran nuclear deal that may be stopped nuclear weapons, but it was an Obama deal. We should get rid of that make the Gulf make Israel happy, and they will then cooperate together. And anything that throws that off of the path that the president had in mind is a problem for him. Because after all we are all still waiting for this vaunted Middle East peace plan, which is supposed to solve all problems. Meanwhile, nothing has occurred. We have not in any way pushed Iran back out of the region. We have a horrific war in Yemen. That has been led by the crown prince of Saudi Arabia. We have an Israeli government. That is under pressure. The prime minister just had to push back a possible no-confidence vote in his own country because of what's happening in Gaza. We have a meltdown with cut her between Saudi Arabian cutter, we have political prisoners in Saudi Arabia. We have what my former boss, and friend and partner have said Madeleine Albright. What we call him diplomacy, a mess in terms of this vaunted plan if this plan is a the big idea of the Trump administration on foreign policy and be in the meantime, it's something that will excuse even the most horrific behavior by our supposed allies in this vaunted plan is it worth it is that plan remotely realistic. Is there any reason that the United States should be doing the kind of stuff that they're doing right now in order to prop that out because of some larger larger game in mind? Well, you know every administration has to walk and chew gum. This administration seems to walk and gain money, and we. Don't know what all the personal financial pieces are to this puzzle. We also have a situation much like Putin's interference with their election. Where the president has said Putin told him he didn't do it in the crown prince's told him, he didn't do it. So I guess he didn't do it..
