Country in the Middle East
L'existence de la peine de mort, comme sanction d'un fait délictueux, est attestée depuis la plus haute Antiquité. Le code babylonien d'Hammurabi, dont la rédaction remonte à environ 1.750 avant J.-C., en fait déjà mention. Quand il s'agit d'infliger des châtiments à leurs semblables, l'imagination des hommes ne semble pas connaître de limites. Aussi les modes d'exécution ont-ils été fort divers. Sous l'Ancien Régime, en France, les roturiers reconnus coupables d'un crime étaient le plus souvent pendus et les nobles décapités, à l'épée ou à la hache. Mais certains châtiments étaient encore plus terribles. Ainsi, certains meurtriers étaient condamnés au supplice de la roue, au cours duquel leurs membres étaient brisés. Quant aux régicides et parricides, ils étaient écartelés par des chevaux attachés aux bras et aux jambes. On sait qu'au cours de l'Histoire, d'autres supplices horribles, comme le bûcher, pour les hérétiques et les sorcières, la crucifixion, l'emmurement ou l'empalement ont été pratiqués. Si, en 2022, 142 pays avaient aboli la peine de mort, 53 l'appliquaient encore. Ce qui était aussi le cas de nombreux États américains. Les méthodes d'exécution mises en œuvre dans ces pays sont aujourd'hui plus limitées. L'une d'entre d'elles s'efforce de réduire la souffrance ressentie par le condamné. Il s'agit de l'injection de substances létales, méthode utilisée aux États-Unis, mais aussi en Chine et au Vietnam. On sait que le recours à la chaise électrique, mode d'exécution emblématique aux États-Unis, pouvait se traduire, malgré les dires de certains, par d'intenses souffrances, surtout si la décharge électrique était mal réglée. D'autres modes d'exécution sont conformes aux "traditions", si l'on peut dire. C'est le cas de la pendaison, pratiquée par de nombreux pays, de la décapitation au sabre, qui n'est plus l'apanage que de la seule Arabie Saoudite ou de la fusillade, par un seul exécutant ou un peloton d'exécution. Mais la lapidation, pratiquée au Soudan et en Iran, témoigne d'un véritable raffinement de cruauté. D'autant que, dans ce dernier pays, les pierres utilisées ne doivent pas être trop grosses, de façon à ne pas infliger la mort trop rapidement. Learn more about your ad choices.

This week starts with Mercury going retrograde in Capricorn and a powerful New Moon in Sagittarius. We have some empowering transits throughout the week, but it ends with an anxiety-producing square between the Sun and Neptune. Jessica tells you what to expect and gives you excellent advice for how to cope with the astrological energies of this important time.
Rundown - Troubadour Dave Gunders - 19:47 "Song Of Columbus" by Dave Gunders - 35:22 Craig Introduces Geert Wilders at Western Conservative Summit - 41:07 Host has had encounters with many political leaders, including a memorable day with likely new Dutch prime minister, Geert Wilders. The controversial author of Marked for Death came to the Denver Hyatt Regency to speak at a gala on June 30, 2012. Host sat with Wilders for a meal and then both spoke. https://www.c-span.org/video/?306868-5/western-conservative-summit Sometimes called the Dutch Donald Trump, the host offers a different take on the tall blonde man with the pompadour who is now a major force in European politics. Unlike Trump, Wilders is pro-choice and favors LGBTQ rights. He's a staunch supporter of Israel. But Wilders is most known for his vocal opposition to Islam. https://www.amazon.com/Marked-Death-Islams-Against-West-ebook/dp/B0080GUP6K Hear Wilders speak just over a decade ago and judge for yourself. Is he capable of leading Europe or is he a hateful bigot as branded by his detractors? Find out what the host said introducing Wilders, as he expressed disappointment with President Obama's handling of the Middle East and foreign policy. This was when Mitt Romney warned about Russian threats and took a more aggressive stand against the Islamic Republic of Iran which backs Hamas and Hezbollah. Barack Hussein Obama was ideally situated to tell harsh truths to the Muslim world but he declined to do so. Troubadour Dave Gunders and the host celebrate Hanukkah, discussing what this new Wilders' election means in the world and whether he is a problem, or a solution. Is it bigotry to oppose a political ideology based on religious imperatives antithetical to democracy and freedom? The world is on the threshold of big changes and the election of Geert Wilders is significant. If you want to understand modern Europe and political changes all around, listen to the words of Silverman and Wilders from the Western Conservative Summit held in 2012. 520 years prior, Christopher Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492 in hopes of discovering the new world and he did so. Masterful musician Dave Gunders wrote a tribute song titled Song of Columbus, which is gorgeous. Give it a listen and hear the back story. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFLrxFjgC3A The Craig Silverman Show - Every Saturday morning at 9 a.m. Colorado time
Iranian-born entrepreneur Patrick Bet-David is known for offering sharp commentary at a waste-no-time pace. His experience as an American immigrant brings a unique perspective to today's chaotic political climate: “I think the white man has forgotten how important the West is,” he tells Glenn on this episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast." Bet-David is no stranger to world conflict. As a survivor of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, he's seen the devastation it can bring. Fresh off his interview with the crown prince of Iran, he gives his take on the future of Iran, the complicated war between Israel and Palestine, and the evils of Hamas and Hezbollah. But he also has plenty to say about American current events as well. Bet-David and Glenn discuss Trump's complicated presidential backbone, how American politics will affect China's initiative to overcome the U.S. by 2025, and what many conservative Americans have been doing wrong. He also talks about the inspiration he's found in Elon Musk's life story, describing the Tesla CEO as both unpredictable AND predictable: “This is not a money guy; this is a vision guy.” Then, Glenn and Bet-David discuss Bet-David's media enterprise, “Valuetainment,” and dive into his latest book, “Choose Your Enemies Wisely.” They discuss the failures of liberals during the COVID pandemic — from remote work to homeschooling — and why a CBDC may be inevitable. He tells Glenn that now is "a perfect market for bullies and tyrants," comparing today's division to a divorce in need of stopping, like a marriage that can still be rescued.

We’ve all heard the push for what some call the “New World Order. On In The Market with Janet Parshall this week, we kicked off the week addressing some of the efforts of those who support this movement to control our lives from the recent climate conference in Dubai, to the call to shut down all coal mines, to the efforts of the E.U. to take control over internet and the growing impact of AI on our lives including the push for its acceptance in the pulpits of the world. Sometimes you just have to say “No”. Our guest explained the value and importance of setting up boundaries in our lives and why doing so promotes a more healthy and balanced lifestyle. We all had our eyes opened as a beloved fighter for the Gospel in Iran explained the spiritual underpinnings of an Amnesty International report that Iran’s leadership used rape to torture prisoners. He also explained why despite what we may see on the evening news, the average Iranian citizen is actually in support of Israel and its war with Hamas. Then we took a radio trip around the globe as we heard more stories of the persecuted church and those who are living and dying for the hope of the Gospel. We also recognized one ministry’s decades of dedicated service to the persecuted church around the world. Just because it is unseen does not mean that the supernatural word has no impact on our daily lives. We once again provided you the opportunity to ask the questions that concern and intrigue you about this very important part of the believer’s walk of faith while on this side of eternity. As we wind down the week it time once again to turn the spotlight of God’s truth on more of the news impacting our lives.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
On Friday's Mark Levin Show, the case of Hunter Biden is straightforward tax evasion because Hunter did not pay any federal income taxes for 4 years, from 2017-2020. When he did file tax returns, Hunter knowingly filed false tax returns, and it is calculated that he owes $1.4 million in taxes. The Democrat media has a problem defending Hunter now because on one hand they say he cannot function properly because of addiction, but on the other hand you have over $30 million coming in from places like Burisma and China. President Biden will pardon his son whether he is re-elected or not because these are federal charges and he can do it even if he is not convicted yet. This should be another charge in the case of impeachment of Joe Biden, with the main reason being the violation of our immigration laws and violating his oath of office. Hunter Biden is the gold standard of people who you file under FARA for having influence from other countries and being a threat to national security. It is ridiculous to claim that Joe Biden did not know about Hunter's business activities, especially with his claim on video to fire the Ukrainian prosecutor. Also, Iran does not use the money they are getting from the Biden Administration to feed its people but instead uses it to fund terrorists like Hezbollah and Hamas. Joe Biden and Anthony Blinken have blood on their hands for setting the Middle East on fire causing suffering and death, and now are demanding Israel to have a ceasefire with Hamas by the end of the year. Biden and Blinken are doing the bidding of Iran by holding back Israel and also ignoring Iranian attacks on the American military in the area. Later, Mark is joined by Paul Sperry of Real Clear Investigations to talk about the corrupt group CAIR and how they have been the U.S. front group for Hamas, which is known to the U.S. Government but they continue to take no action.

After Dark with Hosts Rob & Andrew – What should be asked is why Hamas would launch such an attack on a Democratic country that has worked to establish peace in the region. It should also be asked why hasn't the US or any other country denounced Iran's backing of Hamas. Why haven't any Arab countries in the region opened up their borders to allow fellow Arab-Palestinians to cross?
What is the role of mothers in counterterrorism efforts? Within conflict, women have traditionally been viewed as victims that need protecting; however, their involvement is much more nuanced than that. In this episode, we speak with Professor Amal Hamada, a professor of political science and gender studies at Cairo University. We talk about the role of gender when discussing conflict, the women's movement in Iran, and Palestinian mothers today.This podcast is produced in partnership with the Pearson Institute for the Study and Resolution of Global Conflicts.

Some might say one of the most important ways we exercise the right to free expression is through protests. And we've certainly seen groups all over the world using that right in the last few years, from the George Floyd protests in the U.S. to democratic marches in Hong Kong to demonstrations in Chile, Venezuela, Iran and Peru.On the surface this right may seem straightforward, but there are many thorny questions to grapple with: when does a protest become a violent violation of other rights, what does it mean to protest in the age of surveillance, does the content of the protest matter for it to be protected?
This week, co-hosts Quinta and Scott were joined by co-host emeritus Benjamin Wittes to talk over the week's big national security news, including:“Stalled and Appalled.” Ukraine's counteroffensive to try and reclaim Russia-held parts of eastern Ukraine appears to have stalled, triggering a degree of finger-pointing on both sides of the Atlantic—just as U.S. and European support for their military campaign appears to be waning. What does this mean for the next stage of this conflict?“Parting the Red Sea.” Since the start of the war in Gaza, U.S. and allied diplomatic and military presences have come under attack by Iran-backed proxies throughout the Middle East. Now the Iran-backed Houthi faction in Yemen is targeting commercial shipping in the Red Sea with purported Israeli ties. What's motivating these actions? And how do they change the regional security picture?“One Day Soon, I'm Gonna Tell My Goons, About the Blassingame.” Former President Donald Trump suffered two big legal losses in cases relating to Jan. 6 this past week, as both the D.C. Circuit in the civil suit against him and the trial court in his criminal prosecution held that he was not immune for prosecution by virtue of being the president. What will these decisions mean moving forward on the civil and criminal fronts?For object lessons, Quinta shared an amazing development in the Menendez case. Scott pulled a musical hat-trick and endorsed the newish venue The Atlantis, the phenomenal Lydia Loveless (who he just saw there), and (since it is December) Ingrid Michaelson's holiday album Songs for the Season—and specifically the sob-inducingly melancholy song, “Happy, Happy Christmas.” And Ben plugged the Romanian Madrigal Choir show he attended at the National Cathedral while also logrolling for the new (non-Lawfare) podcast feature he rolled out on his substack Dog Shirt Daily and related podcast “Read with Me,” which features readings of major filings and opinions in the Trump trials. Also, we are beginning preparations for our end-of-year listener-submitted episode!

On this episode of Reaganism, Reagan Institute Director Roger Zakheim sits down with Yonah Jeremy Bob who serves as the senior military correspondent, intelligence analyst and Literary Editor for The Jerusalem Post. They discuss the the ongoing Israel-Hamas war, Iran-Israel competition in the Middle East, and Iran's ongoing nuclear aspirations.
Drawing Closer to the Day of the Lord TS Wright As the world leans closer and closer to what is called the “End Times” war scenario, we see politicians of all shapes, sizes, colors and parties beginning to take sides and reveal their true hearts. We have Palestinian and Hamas supporters in Congress. We have Palestinian Hamas supporters in colleges. We have Palestinian and Hamas supporters protesting in the streets. We also see “some” Israeli supporters – but the liberal news agencies are not really covering them, their stories or discussing the reason Israel has the right to defend itself as a nation. Folks, if you balance out the per capita ratio of those murdered on October 7th, you will see why Israel is so adamant on destroying Hamas once and for all. If the same ratio of casualties were here in the United States, I believe it would be something like 50,000 victims if it would have happened here. If that did happen here, do you think the United States would respond to the terrorist attacks? Do you think we would ignore the pleadings of the world in our response to destroy the elements that attacked us? We fought a 20 year war when terrorists killed 2600 people. Imagine what we would do if a people group came here and murdered 50K in one day… Today, our guest is TS Wright. He is coming back on to discuss what we are seeing, right now, and how it all relates to what the Bible says will be happening in the last days – just before Jesus returns. Scott Wright is the author of the “God Centered Concept Journal” and has a unique insight into prophecy and the end times. I want to get right into our discussion today, so help me welcome back our good friend, Scott Wright. We have seen Israel continue to destroy Hamas buildings in Gaza, sometimes more than 400 air strikes per day. They have continued to prepare for the ground invasion of Gaza, but as of the time of this recording, have not done so. We have seen Qatar negotiate aid and also the release of a couple of the hostages. Can you give us an update on what you see happening in Israel right now (I know this changes almost on a daily basis – but as of the time of this recording – what do you see)? We see Iran and their proxies start to shoot at US troops in Iraq and the surrounding region. Yet, this administration has zero response thus far. Doesn't this just embolden Iran to escalate a bit more because they sense weakness in this president and an unwillingness to show strength because of the upcoming election? Pastor Bob shares about a war simulation he was part of back in the mid-1980's the involved Iran (and what the results showed – but using the technology back then – not today). What do you think is being set up in the Spirit realm that we are witnessing? As I stated, I know things change on a daily basis right now. I'd love to have you come back on in another week or so and we can discuss the most recent events as they unfold. Would you be willing to do that? Folks, these events Scott has been sharing with us today are not something that is new. These events have been building for decades but we are now witnessing – as Scott put it – a

Service to community through self-employment is an extraordinary life path. But how to balance that with long-term financial self care? A GenX listener joins Jessica to unpack how to sustain their queer suiting business—and if they even should.
On Tuesday's Mark Levin Show, the House of Representatives education committee had a crucially important hearing and press briefing about the physical threats against Jewish students on college campuses. The Democrat-controlled Senate didn't bother having any hearings on this. These students talked about traveling from their dorm room to class in great fear. Fox News was the only cable channel to cover what these students were saying live. We are plagued with a poisonous Israel-hating, in many respects Jew-hating, Hamas-loving media. Throughout the 1930's, many professors at colleges like Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania supported Hitler. In the middle of the Holocaust many colleges were promoting antisemitism and many colleges got money from German authorities. Also, CNN's Jake Tapper tried to bully an Israeli spokesman. Tapper's self-righteous moral outrage does not extend to all the countries around the world, particularly in the Middle East, where civilians are being intentionally targeted for slaughter — from Syria and Iran to Yemen and beyond. Tapper claimed that Israel is “raining bombs” down on Gaza. No, it is not. If Israel wanted to ‘rain bombs' down on Gaza it would not be sending tens of thousands of its young men and women into Gaza, the IDF infantry, to fight street by street, house by house, room by room, thereby increasing Israeli casualties as it seeks to limit civilian casualties. Name another country on the face of the earth that would show such restraint after its girls were gang raped and executed, after its babies were decapitated after over 100 of its citizens were taken hostage. Tapper is pushing a narrative and projecting his own bigotry. Later, tens of thousands of Ukrainians died at the hands of Russia. Ukraine needed heavy equipment early in the war, not Biden's restrictions. Ukraine may fall to Russia and Russia won't stop there. Putin has said he will hit Poland and Romania.

Joe Biden and his token press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre say that so-called climate change action is coming for America. This on the heals of COP28 where John Kerry farted while speaking on the microphone, Jake Sullivan stated the obvious saying that Iran was behind recent attacks in the Red Sea, James Comer and House GOP officials have revealed new evidence against Joe Biden and the Biden crime family, but does it matter? Will anything be done about it? A House exploded in Arlington, VA during a police raid and both KJP and Jen Psaki are making bold proclamations about Trump that make zero sense.

Transcript of Interview with Hana Rudolph, Remko Leemhuis, and Marc Sievers: Manya Brachear Pashman: American Jewish Committee has 14 international offices around the world. This week, we checked in with some of those offices to learn what they're seeing and hearing on the ground since the October 7 Hamas terrorist attack on Israel. In an earlier installment, we took you to Europe, Africa, and Latin America. Our journey continues today in Asia, Berlin, and Abu Dhabi. We started in South and East Asia, and the Pacific Islands. Since the director of the Asia Pacific Institute (API) [Shira Loewenberg] was en route to Indonesia, we caught up with Assistant Director Hana Rudolph. Hana, let's start with Indonesia, a predominantly Muslim country, the country with the world's largest Muslim population. In fact, where AJC has made tremendous inroads in recent years engaging with faith and political leaders. What has the response to the October 7 attacks been there? Hana Rudolph: The Indonesian government doesn't have ties with Israel, though it does support a two state solution. So we don't expect there to be a vocal kind of support for Israel. But the anti semitism and the conspiracy theories, the false narratives happen incredibly alarming. There was a rally on November 5, a pro Palestinian rally, and rally organizers think that there were 2 million people who turned out for that. So we're talking huge numbers. The prevailing narrative there is really that Israel is the indiscriminate aggressor, they are just killing women and children for no reason in Gaza. There's very little mention of Hamas' massacre on October 7, and that's the narrative. AJC has taken several delegations of Indonesians to Israel for our Project Interchange. A lot of our alumni had been receiving death threats. And we're not talking about death threats for posts that they're actively making right now in support of Israel. We're talking about death threats because, you know, some long time ago, when they were on this delegation, they posted something that was seen as something pro-Israel, and now they're receiving this kind of pushback and hate and condemnation for it. Manya Brachear Pashman: You mentioned the dominant narrative. Are there other narratives developing? Hana Rudolph: One of the most, I think, notable and disappointing reactions across our region has been China. China refused to condemn Hamas' terrorist attack on October 7. And there has been a notable uptick in antisemitic rhetoric across Chinese social media platforms, which, as you know, are heavily censored when the government chooses to do so. So here the government is choosing not to censor. And in fact, several state-run institutions are actively promoting radically antisemitic content. So I'll give you a few examples. CCCB describes Jews as accounting for 3% of the US population and manipulating and controlling, in their words, 70% of the country's wealth. The China Internet Information Center compared Israel to the Nazis. And these are, of course, narratives that, you know, once they're once they're put out there, they're being actively promoted and popularized by other social media influencers. So the content that's being generated, you know, as a result goes far beyond even those examples. We've noticed that there are several major Chinese map platforms that are no longer labeling Israel as a country, you know, they'll demarcate the borders, they'll identify cities, but you don't see Israel labeled. Most likely, China is seeing the current conflicts within the context of the US versus China and this whole conflict is just another opportunity to champion itself as the leader of the developing world. You know, it's a continued strengthening of the China, Russia, Iran, North Korea bloc of malign actors. It's just very laughable, really, that China is maintaining what is described to be a position of neutrality, when one, it won't condemn Hamas' attack; two, it won't condemn antisemitism. But instead, it'll explicitly denounce Israel for quote, going beyond self defense, and, again, in the foreign minister's words, collectively punishing the Gaza people in its counterstrike. Manya Brachear Pashman: What are we seeing in Australia, where the Jewish community numbers about 100,000? I know historically, antisemitic incidents per capita have remained low there. Hana Rudolph: The Australian government has, by and large, really supported Israel in the same way that the US has. But the politics and public sentiment also look a lot like here. So there's been growing pressure for the government to call for a ceasefire, things like that. The uptick in antisemitism also looks a lot like here. It's been very alarming. There's actually a very sizable Jewish community in Australia. It's about 100,000, and Australia has the largest number of Holocaust survivors per capita, just to give some context. Since October 7, the Executive Council of Australian Jewry has documented 221 incidents of antisemitism, so we're just talking about one month. This includes threats to Jewish schools and synagogues, property damage, even a few physical assaults. There has also been large pro-Palestinian demonstrations. I think the one that probably everyone signed in the news is a demonstration on October 9. So we're talking just two days after the attack. Outside of the Sydney Opera House where pro-Palestinian protesters were chanting ‘Gas the Jews.' Manya Brachear Pashman: Remarks and resolutions coming out of the United Nations General Assembly have shown little support for Israel since the beginning of this conflict. There was a resolution calling for a truce this week. There's one calling on Israel to withdraw from the Golan Heights, the buffer between Israel and yet another hostile neighbor, Syria. How have the nations in the Asia Pacific voted on these resolutions? Hana Rudolph: I would say that the most kind of encouraging signs coming out of some of these countries have really been in terms of the government's position. So I want to especially highlight Japan, South Korea, and India. These are all countries that have joined the U.S. in condemning Hamas' attack on October 7, affirming Israel's right to self defense. They all abstained from a recent UN General Assembly resolution that called for an immediate humanitarian truce. And the reason why they abstained is because there has been a Canadian amendment to unequivocally condemn Hamas terrorist attacks and demanding immediate release of hostages. This amendment was backed by the U.S. but was rejected by the resolution. And so these three countries all abstained. We see it as a positive. The Marshall Islands and Micronesia Islands, both Pacific Islands, voted against it. They have always been strong supporters of Israel. We're incredibly grateful for that relationship. …. Manya Brachear Pashman: Since October 7, AJC Berlin director Remko Leemhuis has taken two German delegations to Israel to speak with hostages' families, to see the homes raided by Hamas, and understand the military operation underway there. Remko joined us from Berlin to speak about those missions, but also to talk about what he's seeing and hearing back home. Remko Leemhuis: We had an attack on a synagogue here in the center of Berlin that was attacked with Molotov cocktails, even though there was police protection. We had the homes of people marked with a star of David. You know, where members of the Jewish community live. And these are the things that happened sort of outside of demonstrations–we had people that have been threatened, because they were wearing a kippah or are visibly Jewish. And when we look at the demonstrations, we see what we've seen, this is nothing too new. All sorts of expressions of antisemitism beginning with, from the river to the sea. People chanting that. We're also seeing that they compare what's happening in Gaza with the shoah, so, Holocaust trivialization. Again, we see attacks on police officers, and thinly veiled, classic antisemitic stereotypes. You know, they're not saying the Jews but saying, you know, the Zionist. And that's also something not too new, but the how forceful these things press. We're also seeing attacks against the press, and saying that the press is lying, and they're always, you know, portraying them in the wrong way and using chants that are hard to translate, but that, up until now, we've mostly seen right wing manifestations. So it's very weird to see how they're now using the same slogans. We've seen it across the board, in every region in every major city. We don't have numbers, over the past month or so. But I can tell you that, for example, in the first week, after October 7, we had 202, antisemitic incidents that were recorded by a different NGO. And that was just the first week after, after October 7. And we had until the end of October, 80 antisemitic crimes that have been registered with the police and the authorities. So we've seen it across the board and online, but especially during demonstrations, so called pro-Palestinian demonstrations, where we have seen violence–violence against the police, but obviously also expressions of antisemitism and very clear expressions of antisemitism. That's been frightening, to be honest, because we have seen, you know, these kinds of before during other rounds of conflict between Hamas and Israel, but this time, it's just the sheer number and the openness is pretty stunning. And I cannot recall a moment where we have seen this kind of openly expressed antisemitism. Manya Brachear Pashman: Are you also hearing it from government leaders? Remko Leemhuis: I have to say that, especially for Germany, that the government, the ministers, they are all very clear in their support for Israel. And this is obviously not a winning theme for them, oftentimes, but the chancellor is very straightforward in his support for Israel, on numerous occasions. The Economy Minister Habeck, has put out a video that got a lot of attention, where he very clearly addresses antisemitism. Antisemitism coming from the left, so sort of his own, he's from the Green Party. So when he's talking about antisemitism from the left, he's sort of talking about where he is coming from. And I think that's always a good starting point for people when they talk about antisemitism always, start by addressing it in your own sort of political spectrum and not pointing fingers at others. And so I think that this is a very good sign. And today, we're weeks after October 7, and they're still very forceful in their support for Israel, which, again, given the pictures that we unfortunately see coming out of Gaza, I wouldn't have imagined that it would be the case, but it still is. So that is, that is good. What is still lacking, in my opinion is, or something that we've seen over the past years, and now seeing much more, that there's a gap between sort of the political class, if you like to call political class and or politicians and mainstream society. Manya Brachear Pashman: But then again, government leaders have had the opportunity to see the battleground firsthand, right? I mean, you've taken two delegations now, can you tell us what they've seen, what they've heard? Remko Leemhuis: I was on two missions. The first mission, this was a delegation with members of parliament, members of the European Parliament and other national parliaments in the European Union, including two German Members of Parliament. That was my first mission to Israel since October 7. And I can say that, obviously, seeing it firsthand among, you know, we had obviously political meetings and meeting with lawmakers in Israel, members of Knesset, but we also went to Kfar Aza, one of the kibbutzim that was attacked on October 7. And we met with survivors' families from there, with families whose loved ones have been abducted, and are now hostages in Gaza. And I think that seeing this firsthand, hearing it firsthand, from the families there's nothing that can substitute for that. You can read a lot, you can watch everything that's in the news or on TV, but being there yourself really has really an impact on people and gives them a better understanding of what Israel is facing and what the enemy is that Israel is facing. My second trip was with the Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, and again, it's someone to be there and be able to go into one of these, you know, small houses which seem like frozen in time. And I mean, nothing has been touched and it looks like it looked on this Saturday morning and in some houses you think, the inhabitants or the people who live there are just out for a while and will come back. Then you go through these houses and then you get to the safety room or the security room and bomb shelter. And you see what happened in that house and that obviously people have died there. And then again, speaking to the families, to the survivors, and seeing how desperate they are. It's something that no one will ever forget who was there and will impact everyone going forward and obviously will also have an impact on how they view the ongoing military operation in Gaza, differently than somebody who's just seeing it from the news. …. Manya Brachear Pashman: In addition to its Jerusalem office, AJC also has a Middle East presence in Abu Dhabi. With us to discuss how Israel's Abraham Accords partner United Arab Emirates has been reacting to the news is AJC Abu Dhabi Director Marc Sievers. Marc, welcome to People of the Pod. Marc Sievers: Hi, Manya. Great to be with you. Manya Brachear Pashman: You are right there in the region, in the neighborhood, if you will. Tell us what you're seeing or hearing and do you feel safe? What's top of mind there? Marc Sievers: Certainly there's a great concern about the potential for escalation. We hear that, it comes up in almost every discussion. Certainly, it's bad enough to see the combat and the situation in Gaza. But there's been concern from the beginning that it could spread to Israel's northern border with Lebanon, with Syria, even potentially, to Iran directly, although I think that's quite unlikely. But it's not entirely out of the realm of the possible. But I think the US military presence in that sense, in the two aircraft carrier groups that are in the waters in the Mediterranean and the Red Sea. There is a significant US military presence that's been brought into the region to help deter an escalation, an expansion of the fighting to Lebanon and Syria. Manya Brachear Pashman: Does the tiny Jewish community there feel safe? Marc Sievers: First of all, threatening or commenting in a hostile manner toward people here because of their race or their religion or their nationality is a crime. It's taken very seriously. There have been a few cases of Jewish people. Not anyone I'm directly involved with, but I heard about who took some complaints to the police and the police took legal action. So there is a legal basis to ban any expression, public expressions of antisemitism. The messages we've received are to keep a bit of a low profile, you know, avoid being obvious or provocative. But other than that, everything's normal. I walk around the city, I drive myself, I go to a lot of public places. I feel perfectly comfortable. I don't feel any particular tension. I'm sure if there were any threats, specific threats that we would be notified. I'm not aware of any. Look, it's a difficult period and emotions run high. And certainly emotions are high in Israel, but they're also high across the Arab world. There is a lot of, as I said earlier, a lot of concern for Palestinian civilians. I think, to some extent, Hamas has managed to project itself, particularly through social media, as the embodiment of the Palestinian people in a way that's kind of hard for us to understand, but it's out there. And that is a factor. Here the Israeli embassy is open and functioning. And there's also a consulate in Dubai that is open and functioning. My understanding is that at least Israeli ambassadors in the other countries, including Egypt and Jordan have been asked to come home, not because they've been kicked out, but out of security concerns. So I think it also speaks highly of the environment in the UAE, that the Israeli diplomatic missions are still here. Manya Brachear Pashman: But will the relationships that AJC has built, that Israel has built through the Abraham Accords, are they strained? Or is your work continuing through all of this? Marc Sievers: As I keep saying this is a difficult period. But I think we're all hoping that we'll all get through this together and that there will be a new situation after the military campaign is completed, that we want to see the hostages released safely. And that's very much on people's minds. A number of people here have family or friends who either died on October 7, or in some cases were kidnapped or they know somebody who was. So we share that concern and hope with all of the Jewish people around the world. That's certainly on our minds, but I'm very hopeful still that we will get past this and that there will be new opportunities to rebuild some of what's been disrupted. And there's no question that things have been disrupted, that's just a fact. Manya Brachear Pashman: Marc, Remko, Hana, thank you all for joining us. Be sure to listen to our previous episode from earlier this week featuring updates from Paris, Latin America, and Africa. And last week, before fighting resumed, we spoke with AJC Jerusalem Director Avital Leibovitch about Israel's efforts to root out Hamas and bring the rest of the hostages home.
On this edition of Parallax Views, we continue our coverage of the Gaza War with three different segments and guests. First up, Antiwar.Com's news editor Dave DeCamp joins the show to discuss the bombshell reports by the New York Times and Israel's 972 magazine related to the war. NYT reported recently that Israel ignored vital intelligence, specifically the blueprints for a major attack, in the lead-up to the October 7th attack. Meanwhile, 972 reports on the use of AI systems to hit non-military targets in Gaza; 972 referred to it as a "massive assassination factory). We'll discuss the significance of these two stories as well as the Biden administration's response to the war and what may be going on behind the scenes. In the second segment of the show, David C. Hendrickson, the president of the John Quincy Adams Society and professor emeritus of political science at Colorado College (and author of such books as Republic in Peril, Peace Pact, Union, Nation, Empire, and most recently Freedom, Independence, Peace: John Quincy Adams and American Foreign Policy) returns to give his take on the Gaza War, the Biden administration's response to it, the Israeli intelligence failure of October 7th, the massive casualties inflicted on innocent Gazans, the different varieties of international relations realism, John Mearsheimer Vs. Henry Kissinger and liberal realism vs. a crude "the strong do what they can, the weak suffer what they must" realism, dissent in the State Dept. over the Gaza War, Benjamin Netanyahu, Eisenhower vs. Israel (and George HW Bush vs. Israel), Obama's problems with Netanyahu, the lack of security around Israel's southern border before October 7th, and much, much more. In the final segment of the show, Muhammad Sahimi, a contributor to Responsible Statecraft and Antiwar.Com, joins the show to discuss the Islamic Republic of Iran's response to the Gaza War and the differences in approach between the hardliner and moderate/pragmatist factions in Iran when it comes to the war, the U.S. role in the Middle East, Israel, and related issues. NOTE: In the conversation with Prof. Hendrickson I misquote Thucydides. He wrote "The strong do what they can, the weak suffer what they must" not "The strong do what they can, the weak do what they must".
