Today, in the funeral procession of assassinated Palestinian-American journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, the police of Apartheid Israel literally attacked the men carrying her casket, beating them with sticks, causing them to momentarily drop the casket. In all of my years as a historian and as an activist and as a journalist, I've never seen this before. It truly was an abomination that really goes beyond words. However... My only hope, is that like when the world saw the photographs and videos of white supremacist police in the Jim Crow South turning their fire hoses on Black boys and girls, and unleashing dogs on them, that it so exposed their ugly bigotry, that it was seen as a turning point in the Civil Rights Movement that led to the Voting Rights Act and the Civil Rights Act. Because here's the thing, if you are low enough to beat men carrying a casket during a funeral procession, there is nothing you won't do. Israel can no longer pretend before the world that it has some moral high ground. That facade has crumbled. We must all stand up and speak out against the Apartheid state of Israel and their unending human rights abuses.

In their ever-lasting search for a savior to liberate them from the globalists, the American right have latched on to billionaire internationalist Elon Musk, who hopes to "make the far left and far right equally unhappy" by assimilating Twitter into his portfolio of transhumanist companies. The Duginite faux-right were hoping the Prince of Apartheid was going to liberate their savior from the bowels of Twitter purgatory, but they were recently dismayed by his decision to deploy Starlink in support of Azov. ...or were they? The Russian media is accusing him of Nazism over the ordeal, because we all know a Nazi is the worst thing you can possibly be. This is EPISODE 882 of So to Speak w/ Jared Howe!

Elon Musk and Free Speech. A Hero Story. South African immigrant Musk now poised to end the Apartheid policies of old Twitter. But is Musk now fearing for his life? Explaining why the First Amendment presents such a dire threat to the Ruling Class. Fears of losing their all-important Narrative Control. In spite of Nina Jankowicz propaganda to the contrary, let us remember the powerful are always and forever the censors -- while the powerless are the victims of censorship. Meanwhile, Biden seems more determined than ever to drag America into WWIII over Ukraine. Boasting of US intel assistance. CEO of Lockheed describes the current gravy train. Noam Chomsky offers fascinating praise for Donald Trump as the "one statesman" to provide "sensible" statements in "how to solve the crisis." Plus, JD Vance lambastes "slimeball" Karl Rove and describes the critical importance of supporting America First candidates in GOP Primaries. Let us understand the ongoing corruption of the Republican Establishment, and the true state of servitude of Republican Voters. We know all their old tricks.

On this edition of Parallax Views, William Hogeland of Hogeland's Bad History on Substack (and author of such rip-snorting histories as The Autumn of the Black Snake and The Whiskey Rebellion) joins me to discuss the Supreme Court draft opinion that seeks to overturn the Roe Vs. Wade decision on abortion. Hogeland wrote about this matter in a Substack entry entitled "'Deeply rooted in this Nation's history and tradition' The Bad History in Alito's Draft Overturning Roe v. Wade". What does the leaked draft say about the trends we're headed towards and what to make of the argument made in the draft and what is driving it? Hogeland argues that the draft has national-mythopoetic language in it that animates nationalist sentiments seeking to overturn progressive gains in the past half century. In the second segment of the show, Sanna'a, Yemen-based journalist Nasser Arraybyee joins us to discuss the ceasefire between Houthi forces and Saudi Arabia in the 7-year long Yemen war that's turned into one of the world's worst humanitarian crises. The ceasefire has been in effect since Ramadan and is, according to Nasser, optimistically looking like it will hold. Nasser explains why this ceasefire is different; Saudi Arabia's changing relationships with Iran, Turkey, and Qatar; the United Arab Emirates; the role of al Qaeda and ISIS in Yemen; the effect of Saudi-led blockades on the Yemeni population; and much more. In the third and final segment of today's program, Yumna Patel, Palestine New Director for Mondoweiss, joins me to discuss her new documentary Inside Israeli Apartheid. Yumna discusses the unequal treatment of Palestinians in both the Occupied Territories AND within Israel proper as well as some of the specific issues covered in her hard-hitting documentary that follows on the heels of human rights organizations like B'Tselem, Human Rights Watch, and Amnesty International discussing the question of apartheid in relation to Israel.

**Boycott, is screened on this year's DocLands on Sunday, May 8 at 4 PM at SMITH RAFAEL FILM CENTER in San Rafael- For more information please visit, doclands.com** The freedom to refuse to buy a product at any time from anyone you want, which has historically been used by oppressed minorities throughout the world, witness the bus boycotts of the 50s, the grape boycotts of the 60s or the anti-Apartheid campaign of the 80s, is now at the heart of the struggle for Palestinian rights. The new documentary film "Boycott," examines the heroic plight of three individual Americans in three different states who rejected the dictate of anti-BDS laws surreptitiously passed by 31 states of the union, challenged that ban in court and prevailed in the head. BOYCOTT chronicles the stories of three everyday Americans -- a speech pathologist, a public defender, and a newspaper publisher -- who take the extraordinary step of suing their states after new laws require them to sign a pledge saying they won't participate in boycotts of Israel in order to receive a government contract. VOMENA's Khalil Bendib spoke with the film's producer Suhad Babaa. Palestinian American journalist Laura Albast says the media must stop giving reign to Israeli aggression & begin telling the full story of Palestine. Recently- Ms Albast and Cat Knar coauthored an opinion piece in the Washington Post on the biased & inaccurate coverage of the Israeli Occupation of Palestine- they write, we have seen the same patterns over and over again in media coverage of Palestine. Palestinians are not killed; we simply die. When Israeli forces raid our neighborhoods in the middle of the night, bomb our children, demolish our homes, colonize our land and kill our people, we are somehow equal instigators. Media descriptions regularly imply a false symmetry between occupier and occupied, propping up anti-Palestinian and Islamophobic narratives that blame the Palestinian people for Israeli aggression.” Malihe Razazan spoke with Laura about the media coverage of Palestine in the US media and Why the media fails to cover Palestine with accuracy and empathy. Laura Albast, a Palestinian American journalist and translator, is senior editor of digital strategy and communications at the Institute for Palestine Studies-USA.

At best, memories are scattered across social media — if they're recorded at all. Indeed, fewer people today are posting to the sites they once trusted with their memories. There just isn't an effective platform for creating, storing and passing on first-person accounts in multiple media formats.Enter Clint Davis: An entrepreneur with a passion for storytelling and preserving the past. As the CEO and Founder of Capsll App, Clint empowers others to save their histories and pass on their legacies.Clint's love for the stories that make each individual unique stems from his own remarkable life experiences and his 17-year career in radio and television broadcasting on four continents. Now, with Capsll App, Clint is encouraging others to preserve their special memories. With Capsll App, users can gather their once-scattered memories into digital time capsules that can be shared privately with full user control, or on an optional public feed to inspire others. Capsll App also provides users with coached storytelling, drawn from Clint's broadcasting expertise. Unlike many platforms, Capsll captures no user data, has zero advertising, and allows users complete ownership of their content.A cancer survivor who lost two siblings at a young age, Clint has always had a keen awareness of the importance of remembering the past, while also making the most of the present moment. He was born in South Africa, and witnessed the transition from the Apartheid system to democracy before moving to Dubai, and then, to Gold Coast Australia. Along the way, he embraced adventure — including skydiving and playing with lions — worked as a high-performance driving instructor, became a DJ at a top radio station, earned a theology degree, appeared on reality TV, and ran a podcast. A decades-long dream of living in the USA was realized when Clint won the green card lottery at a 0.73% chance. He and his wife moved to Los Angeles, and eventually settled in Austin, Texas.In Clint's words, "Always remember, there is a plan and a purpose for your life.

Hilton Judin's book Architecture, State Modernism and Cultural Nationalism in the Apartheid Capital (Routledge, 2021) is the first comprehensive investigation of the architecture of the apartheid state in the period of rapid economic growth and political repression from 1957 to 1966 when buildings took on an ideological role that was never remote from the increasingly dominant administrative, legislative and policing mechanisms of the regime. It considers how this process reflected the usurpation of a regional modernism and looks to contribute to wider discourses on international postwar modernism in architecture. Buildings in Pretoria that came to embody ambitions of the apartheid state for industrialization and progress serve as case studies. These were widely acclaimed projects that embodied for apartheid officials the pursuit of modernization but carried latent apprehensions of Afrikaners about their growing economic prospects and cultural estrangement in Africa. It is a less known and marginal story due to the dearth of material and documents buried in archives and untranslated documents. Many of the documents, drawings and photographs in the book are unpublished and include classified material and photographs from the National Nuclear Research Centre, negatives of 1960s from Pretoria News and documents and pamphlets from Afrikaner Broederbond archives. State architecture became the most iconic public manifestation of an evolving expression of white cultural identity as a new generation of architects in Pretoria took up the challenge of finding form to their prospects and beliefs. It was an opportunistic faith in Afrikaners who urgently needed to entrench their vulnerable and contested position on the African continent. The shift from provincial town to apartheid capital was swift and relentless. Little was left to stand in the way of the ambitions and aim of the state as people were uprooted and forcibly relocated, structures torn down and block upon block of administration towers and slabs erected across Pretoria. This book will be of great interest to students and scholars of architectural history as well as those with an interest in postcolonial studies, political science, and social anthropology.

On this edition of Parallax Views, outgoing United Nations Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian Territories occupied since 1967 S. Michael Lynk joins us to discuss his latest report on the situation of human rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territory. Dr. Lynk, who is also an associate professor at the University of Ottawa, describes how he wrote the report and the difficulties of writing due to roadblocks from both the pandemic and Israeli officials. We then begin to delve into the findings of the report with a focus on the shocking stories of settler violence detailed within, the unequal practice of law and policy in the OPT in regard to its Israeli and Palestinian citizens, housing demolition and the issue of collective punishment, "permanent occupation" as a legal paradox, international law, institutionalized systems of racial oppression and domination, the differences between what took place in apartheid South Africa and what is happening now in the Occupied Territories, and much, much more. Additionally, we do raise the issue of the "A" word, or apartheid, in the OPT. What does it mean? What does it entail? And why does Lynk's report employ the term. This specific UN report raises the issue of apartheid alongside a growing number of others in the past few years including B'tselem, Human Rights Watch, and Amnesty International. What does it all mean and what are Lynk's recommendations going forward? Also, what does the report mean when it calls for the United Nations to re-establish the Special Committee Against Apartheid and what are the broader ramifications of what is currently occurring in the OPT according to Lynk's report? All that and more on this edition of Parallax Views!

In this episode, I sit with Clint Davis: An entrepreneur with a passion for storytelling and preserving the past. I was absolutely mesmerized by his passion and his story. People used to save their histories in books, memoirs or photo albums; but we have failed to find comparable ways to preserve stories and share them with ease in our digital world. At best, memories are scattered across social media — if they're recorded at all. Indeed, fewer people today are posting to the sites they once trusted with their memories. There just isn't an effective platform for creating, storing and passing on first-person accounts in multiple media formats. As the CEO and Founder of Capsll App, Clint empowers others to save their histories and pass on their legacies. Clint's love for the stories that make each individual unique stems from his own remarkable life experiences and his 17-year career in radio and television broadcasting on four continents. Now, with Capsll App, Clint is encouraging others to preserve their special memories. With Capsll App, users can gather their once-scattered memories into digital time capsules that can be shared privately with full user control, or on an optional public feed to inspire others. Capsll App also provides users with coached storytelling, drawn from Clint's broadcasting expertise. Unlike many platforms, Capsll captures no user data, has zero advertising and allows users complete ownership of their content. A cancer survivor who lost two siblings at a young age, Clint has always had a keen awareness of the importance of remembering the past, while also making the most of the present moment. He was born in South Africa, and witnessed the transition from the Apartheid system to democracy before moving to Dubai, and then to Gold Coast Australia. Along the way, he embraced adventure — including skydiving and playing with lions — worked as a high-performance driving instructor, became a DJ at a top radio station, earned a theology degree, appeared on reality TV and ran a podcast. A decades-long dream of living in the USA was realized when Clint won the green card lottery at a 0.73% chance. He and his wife moved to Los Angeles, and eventually settled in Austin, Texas. In Clint's words, "Always remember, there is a plan and a purpose for your life. You are valuable, and your story matters!"

With this conclusion, Amnesty joined the ranks of international and Israeli NGOs, including Human Rights Watch, B'Tselem, and Yesh Din, as well as Palestinian organizations and advocates, including Al Haq and Al Mezan, who have likewise concluded that that Israel's treatment of Palestinians amounts to the crime of apartheid. And just last week, UN Special Rapporteur Michael Lynk articulated the same conclusion in an official report to the UN Security Council. In this webinar/podcast, we explore another aspect of this issue: the dynamics and tactics (some new, some old) on display in the responses from defenders of the status quo to the growing use and acceptance of the apartheid framing — including deflection and misdirection aimed at shifting focus away from factual findings and delegitimization and demonization of human rights defenders and Palestinian rights activists.

Race Series. Episode #3 of 4. During WWII, South Africa's United Party failed to enforce segregation laws with the vigor that most Afrikaners thought was necessary. As a result, war time was accompanied by growing fears of racial mixing and prophecies of racial doom for white South Africans. Afrikaners placed much of the blame for the problems on non-white South Africans. The racial and ethnic discontent was complicated by Afrikaners' Christian convictions, fears of communism, and, strangely, a desire for modernization. These four principles resulted in their Apartheid project and South Africa's devolution into a racist pariah state For this month's series on race, we are tackling one of history's most notorious systems of racial segregation, South Africa's Apartheid.
