Welcome to The Times of Israel's Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what's happening in Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday. Senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur and military correspondent Emanuel Fabian join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on today's episode. We begin with what we know about what led Prime Minister Naftali Bennett to announce the end of the year-old coalition. What should happen now? (Hint: think West Bank regulations.) What do we know about former prime minister Bejamin Netanyahu's tactics for the coming elections? The New York Times published a damning report blaming IDF soldiers for the death of Al Jazeera reporter Shireen Abu Akleh on May 11 in Jenin. How do the IDF's own findings line up? It was widely reported on Monday that Israel and its regional allies — under US leadership — are developing a joint defense pact to protect against the threat of drones and missiles by Tehran and its regional proxies. What's new here? Discussed articles include: Bennett announces coalition's collapse, elections: ‘We did our utmost to continue' Coalition looking to dissolve Knesset as soon as Wednesday in bid to foil opposition NYT probe: Abu Akleh ‘most likely' killed by IDF, but no indication she was targeted IDF expands Abu Akleh probe, issues fresh call for PA to hand over fatal bullet Gantz says regional air defense alliance has already thwarted Iranian attacks Subscribe to The Times of Israel Daily Briefing on iTunes, Spotify, PlayerFM, Google Play, or wherever you get your podcasts.

Today, we're featuring the Al Jazeera Investigates podcast's episode, ‘The Truth Illusion'. It explores one of the most profound questions that philosophers through the ages have tried to answer. What can we prove to be the truth? In today's deeply divided society, is it even possible for people to agree on a common ‘reality'? Al Jazeera investigates how those deepening divisions began and how they have eroded faith in authority – creating conspiracy theories and ‘alternative facts'.

Turkish artist Esref Armagan is one of the few blind commercial painters in the world. Blind from birth, he learned to draw by touching and copying carved shapes. As he grew older, Armagan adapted techniques which allowed him to add perspective to his work. A few critics suggested that his art was not his own, a claim refuted by those who witnessed him paint. Today, Armagan's artwork is in demand internationally. He also mentors young visually impaired children, demonstrating how they can achieve their artistic dreams.

When a freelancer says that they feel like they're going backwards, often they're hyperfocusing on a small piece of data instead of larger trends (e.g. a couple of weeks/pitches vs. quarters/years); or they've changed an important variable (e.g. pitching more competitive publications for the first time vs. pitching less competitive pubs they've already written for); or they're on the verge of a major breakthrough. As journalists, we always look out for our biases in our reporting. As a freelancers, it's also important to look at a bias toward negative self-talk that leads to spinning out and avoiding the very things that would help you achieve your goals faster. In a culture oriented toward constant growth, stability can be framed as regression. That might sound like “I feel like I'm going backwards” instead of “I have a reliable base income month after month” or “I'm making steady progress on my project.” Plateaus get a bad rap. This is another way of describing steady clients, regular income, and long-term editorial relationships. If you're super plugged into hustle mode and running on nervous energy, that it can seem like something's gone wrong to be at ease and appreciate what you've built for yourself. Complex growth isn't linear. Growth and progression are more often cyclical, where you're facing a similar struggle at a new level.

"An intense look at the high-stakes world of a NYC paramedic in the months before and after COVID-19 altered our landscape."-Damon Tweedy, MD, author ofBlack Man in a White Coat: A Doctor's Reflections on Race and MedicineThe education of a New York City paramedic, whose tales of tragedy and transcendence over a single year culminate in the greatest challenge the city's emergency medical system has ever faced: COVID-19.As a seasoned paramedic and union leader, Anthony Almojera thought he could handle anything his job threw at him. Like many medical first responders, he came from a troubled background and carried the traumas of the city as well as its triumphs. He had grown up in the rough-and-tumble Park Slope of the 1980s, been homeless for a time, and had watched murder, addiction, and hopelessness consume those closest to him. But he had dedicated his life to helping people in need, and while every day was filled with tragedy-stabbings, shootings, accidents, suicides-it also brought moments of uplift: births, resuscitations, and rescues that reminded Anthony and his coworkers why EMS was the most thrilling job on earth, even if the pay was lousy and the hours were long.So when a strange new virus began spreading in New York, Anthony and his fellow medics were ready. They had done the biohazard drills; they knew the procedures, and how to handle the sick and the bereaved. They believed that their lives and training had prepared them for this new challenge. But the months ahead would prove them wrong, and would push New York's EMS workers, and Anthony himself, to the breaking point-and beyond.Following one paramedic into hell and back, Riding the Lightning tells the story of New York City's darkest days through the eyes of its frontline medical workers and the community they serve: ordinary people who will continue to make New York an extraordinary place long after it has been reborn from the ashes of the COVID-19 pandemic.Veteran paramedic Almojera tackles his own mental health struggles while aiding others in this heartfelt and eye-opening memoir-a love letter to first responders and New Yorkers alike. RIDING THE LIGHTNING is a critical look inside New York City's most critical public service, through the eyes of an extraordinary medic and the New Yorkers that he serves. New York State Senator Andrew Gounardes has praised the book as "raw and riveting." Almojera's storytelling is incredibly vibrant and "in the moment"; his passion for helping others will inspire as we learn to live in this brave, new world.Reviews for RIDING THE LIGHTNING:"[An] engrossing, first-hand account.This is a tale of resilience, told with a feeling for the grittiness, cultural vibrancy, and immediacy of this multi-ethic city." --Library Journal (starred review)"Page-turning and reflective . a tapestry of compassion, dedication, and suffering, ranging from bloody, grisly scenes to excruciatingly sad, inspiring, and uplifting moments."--Kirkus ReviewsABOUT ANTHONY ALMOJERAANTHONY ALMOJERA is an FDNY EMS lieutenant and vice president of AFSCME DC37 Local 3621, the New York City Fire Department's EMS officers' union. He has been profiled on the front page of the Washington Post and featured by CNN, Al Jazeera, USA Today, NPR, the BBC, and numerous other media outlets. Born in Brooklyn, he is a practicing Buddhist and works a third job as an on-site paramedic at the Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens. He lives in Brooklyn.
This week, the United States is hosting the biggest political gathering in the Western Hemisphere. The Summit of Americas, held every 3 or so years, is an opportunity for heads of state from all of the Americas to come together and discuss common issues, from migration to climate change. It's always been a complicated affair, but this year there was even more drama than usual after the governments of Cuba, Venezuela, and Nicaragua were kept off the guest list. In this episode, we break down the controversy and look at how their absence might change the substance of the gathering.

Join Olúfẹ́mi O. Táíwò and Robin D.G. Kelley for a conversation about the politics of solidarity in the fight against racial capitalism. “I was waiting for this book without realizing I was waiting for this book.”—Ruth Wilson Gilmore, author of Change Everything: Racial Capitalism and the Case for Abolition “Olúfémi O. Táíwò is a thinker on fire. He not only calls out empire for shrouding its bloodied hands in the cloth of magical thinking but calls on all of us to do the same. Elite capture, after all, is about turning oppression and its cure into a (neo)liberal commodity exchange where identities become capitalism's latest currency rather than the grounds for revolutionary transformation. The lesson is clear: only when we think for ourselves and act with each other, together in deep, dynamic, and difficult solidarity, can we begin to remake the world.”—Robin D. G. Kelley, author of Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination Through a substantive engagement with the global Black radical tradition and a critical understanding of racial capitalism, Olúfẹ́mi O. Táíwò identifies the process by which a radical concept can be stripped of its political substance and liberatory potential by becoming the victim of elite capture—deployed by political, social, and economic elites in the service of their own interests. Táíwò's crucial intervention both elucidates this complex process and helps us move beyond a binary of “class” vs. “race.” By rejecting elitist identity politics in favor of a constructive politics of radical solidarity, he advances the possibility of organizing across our differences in the urgent struggle for a better world. --------------------------------------------------------- Speakers: Olúfẹ́mi O. Táíwò is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Georgetown University. He is the author of Elite Capture: How the Powerful Took Over Identity Politics (And Everything Else) and Reconsidering Reparations. His work exploring the intersections of climate justice and colonialism has been featured in The New Yorker, The Nation, Boston Review, Dissent, The Appeal, Slate, Al Jazeera, The New Republic, Aeon, and Foreign Policy.

Are your emails annoying your editor? Are you sending too many followups? Too many story ideas? Are all your messages getting on their nerves? If your pitches are half baked, poorly written, and an overall bad fit for the publication, it really doesn't matter how many you send. You can't send lousy pitches and expect assignments as a reward for not sending them more often. Assuming your pitches are developed with the editor's needs in mind, let's look at the real situation.
Between a piece on “the left's” positions on Ukraine, the NYT's coverage of the death of Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, and Rebecca Traister's new profile of Dianne Feinstein, the theme of today's episode is “looking the truth in the face and ignoring the most obvious conclusion.”
This week Lara and Michael sat down with award-winning journalist for Al Jazeera, Jamal Elshayyal. We cover the occupation's continued attack on the press in the wake of the execution of Shireen Abu Akleh. The occupation once again killed another Palestinian female journalist, Ghufran Harun Warasneh, and attacked her funeral procession. Lara talks about how terrifying it is that the occupation is doubling down and murdering more journalists. Jamal provides us the context that it might be that they are acting out most because they are near the end of their tether. Jamal relives his experience aboard the Mavi Mamara a humanitarian flotilla that was shot at in international waters by the occupation commandos who then boarded the ship and took everyone hostage. Jamal's was the last signal broadcasting before the Israelis cut power. Michael inquires about the insides of Gaddafi's intelligence compound where Jamal discovered some wild stuff!

He was once known as the world's "poorest" president. A left-wing rebel fighter in his youth, Jose Mujica was elected president of Uruguay in 2010, making headlines worldwide for not changing the modest life he was used to. He was a president with no palace, no motorcade and no pomp. He led his five-year government by example, with austerity, donating a big part of his salary to social causes, driving his old Volkswagen Beetle, and living in his farmhouse. And that is where we caught up with him. Jose Mujica talks to Al Jazeera.

The story of Mohamed "Med" Hondo, from his humble beginnings in Mauritania, to smuggling himself on board a ship to France, to finding recognition as a modern African cinema director and actor. Hondo's films challenged racism in Europe and historic colonialism in Africa. He also found great success dubbing the voices of famous Hollywood actors into French, including Eddie Murphy and Morgan Freeman. French children recognise Hondo as the voice of Donkey in Shrek. But to a generation of cinema-goers, Hondo was a radical filmmaker who used his creativity as a tool to fight injustice, wherever he saw it.

Our reporter Nick Truebridge joins us now from outside TVNZ.
When Lukashenko released the now infamous Russian war plans map he raised alarm bells throughout Europe, signalling that Russia may be looking to conquer Ukraine first and Moldova second. The war has taken a drastic turn since that point, but the question of Moldovan security still looms over the Northern Balkans. Could reunification with Romania be a back door entry into EU membership and protection under the NATO umbrella, or will Transnistria continue to be the thorn in Chisinau's side?

The killing of the beloved Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, who was https://www.cnn.com/2022/05/24/middleeast/shireen-abu-akleh-jenin-killing-investigation-cmd-intl/index.html (shot by Israeli forces) while covering an IDF raid of occupied Jenin on May 11th, has sparked massive outcry in Palestine and widespread condemnation from the international community—as did the subsequent attack on her funeral procession by Israeli police. Though Abu Akleh, a veteran correspondent for Al Jazeera, was a singular figure, her death is only the latest reminder that Israel has routinely targeted journalists and civilians, sustaining its impunity through obfuscation in the media and the routine dehumanization of Palestinians. Jewish Currents fellow Dylan Saba speaks with political scientist Dana El Kurd and activist Fadi Quran about Israeli media strategy, shifting public opinion outside the region, and the discursive and strategic challenges faced by the Palestine solidarity movement. Topics Mentioned: “https://www.cnn.com/2022/05/24/middleeast/shireen-abu-akleh-jenin-killing-investigation-cmd-intl/index.html (New evidence suggests Shireen Abu Akleh was killed in targeted attack by Israeli forces)” - CNN “https://www.aljazeera.com/features/2020/9/30/behind-the-lens-remembering-muhammad-al-durrah (Behind the lens: Remembering Muhammad al-Durrah, 20 years on)” by Talal Abu Rahma “https://www.jpost.com/israel-news/on-this-day-stern-gang-assassinates-un-mediator-count-folke-bernadotte-in-1948-679649 (On This Day: Stern Gang assassinates UN mediator Count Folke Bernadotte in 1948)” by Aaron Reich https://twitter.com/fadiquran/status/1524340592863584256?s=20&t=b8yHN-2Fggpgej95aHmfpw (Twitter thread) by Fadi Quran on the pattern of Israeli obfuscation following an attack “https://theintercept.com/2018/08/11/israel-palestine-drone-strike-operation-protective-edge/ (Secret Israeli Report Reveals Armed Drone Kills Four Boys Playing on Gaza Beach in 2014)” by Robert Mackey https://twitter.com/noatishby/status/1526964029830340610?s=20&t=aXnivfKQBwJtDUkjwBY61A (Noa Tishby invoking antisemitism) regarding the response to Shireen's death Israeli military spokesperson saying the press is “https://www.timesofisrael.com/veteran-al-jazeera-journalist-shot-dead-during-israeli-raid-in-jenin/ (armed with cameras)” “https://jewishcurrents.org/you-cannot-unsee-this-image (You Cannot Unsee This Image),” an interview with Rashid Khalidi by Dylan Saba “https://arabcenterdc.org/resource/key-messages-from-the-oppressed/ (Key Messages from the Oppressed)” by Dana El Kurd
On this edition of Parallax Views, Dan Christensen of the Florida Bulldog returns to the show to discuss the latest on the recently declassified FBI report on Saudi Arabia and the support networks for the perpetators of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks. Dan has been covering this issue alongside Anthony Summers and Robynn Swan, authors of The Eleventh Day: The Full Story of 9/11 and Osama Bin Laden, for a number of years now and his latest Florida Bulldog piece on the subject is entitled "A ‘state secret' no more: New FBI report says Saudi government officials provided support network for 9/11 hijackers". Among the subjects discussed in relation to the report are: Saudi charities; Prince Bandar Bin Salman (nicknamed Bandar Bush for his association with George W. Bush); the Muslim World League; Operation Encore; the figures of Fahad al Thumairy , Omar al Bayoumi, and the now unredacted Musaed al Jarrah; 9/11 hijackers al Hazmi and al Mihdhar; and much, much more! In the second segment of the show, Mitchell Plitnick of ReThinking Foreign Policy joins me to discuss his Responsible Statecraft piece "Biden's trip to Israel is getting trickier by the day". In June, President Joe Biden will visit Israel. The death of Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh in Jenin, the police attacks during her funeral, and the upcoming Jerusalem Day "Flag March" of Israeli far-right nationalists which will go through Damascus Gate and the Old City's Muslim Quarter has already put tensions at an all time high. Meanwhile, the Biden administration is seeking to pivot U.S. foreign policy out of the Middle East to focus on Russia and China. Mitchell explains how he believes this has led to a circumstance where the Biden administration is not addressing issues like Abu Akleh's death or the large expansion of settlements in the West Bank. In addition to this we discuss Israel's current Prime Minister Naftali Bennet, the figure of Knesset member and far-right provocateur Itamar Ben-Gvir, Secretary of State Antony Blinken's encounter with a pro-Palestinian activist, and much, much more.
