In this episode of By Any Means Necessary, hosts Sean Blackmon and Jacquie Luqman are joined by John Kiriakou, co-host of Political Misfits, which you can hear from 12 to 2 PM EST right here on Radio Sputnik to discuss the resignation of Bureau of Prisons Director Michael Carvajal and the rot that characterized the prison system under his watch, Carvajal's refusal to act on the spread of COVID in prisons as people died directly because of his refusal to act, how this refusal and treatment of prisoners reveals a larger disdain for incarcerated people in society, and how the harsh treatment of prisoners contributes to high rates of recidivism.In the second segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Miko Peled, human rights activist and author of “The General's Son: Journey of an Israeli in Palestine,” and “Injustice, the Story of the Holy Land Foundation Five.” to discuss efforts by Israel to displace a family in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of Jerusalem, how it fits into Israel's campaign to expel Palestinians from the neighborhood and its colonization campaign, the greenwashing of Israel's ethnic cleansing campaign in the Naqab, and the US taxpayer money that goes into these displacement campaigns.In the third segment, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Anthony Rogers Wright, Director of Environmental Justice with New York Lawyers for the Public Interest to discuss Joe Biden's empty rhetoric on environmental justice and the health of Black people, the failure of the Justice40 initiative to allocate infrastructure funds to poor Black communities, how corporate control of politicians continues to contribute to the harms faced by working class communities, and the possibility of worsened infrastructure and economic inequality for communities suffering from environmental racism.Later in the show, Sean and Jacquie are joined by Margaret Kimberley, editor and senior columnist at Black Agenda Report and author of the book "Prejudential: Black America and the Presidents" to discuss the first year of Joe Biden's presidency and his rejection of progressive reforms and so-called “harm reduction” that is responsible for his election in the first place, the crisis of legitimacy that has opened up due to Biden's abandonment of working and poor people, the opportunity to organize for a system that works for working and poor people that has arisen because of that crisis, US attempts to overthrow the government of Nicaragua and the system that it represents, and the cooptation of progressive language in the service of imperialism.

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. Palestinian Affairs reporter Aaron Boxerman and Military correspondent Judah Ari Gross join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on today's episode. Israelis awoke to news of an overnight eviction from the much-discussed east Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah, the first eviction since 2017. The hot-button area has been the site of countless court cases and protests. What is different about this current eviction case -- and why was it carried out in the dead of night? It's a few decades late, but it appears that Israelis are now experiencing shades of "1984" with the government's use of NSO Group Pegasus software on innocent-until-proven-otherwise citizens. Gross delves into what we know so far in this developing story. Boxerman recently investigated one of the most lucrative industries for Palestinian residents outside of Hebron: metal salvage from electronic waste. This livelihood, they claim, comes with a terrible cost -- their health. Boxerman spent time with countless people who claim their families' cancer cases are due to rampant air pollution. And finally -- snow! Find out what these ToI staffers do when the weather outside is frightful.

Palestinian Affairs correspondent Aaron Boxerman and Health Reporter Nathan Jeffay join host Amanda Borschel-Dan in today's episode.

Boxerman dives into why Keren Kayemet L'Yisrael-Jewish National Fund's "greening of the desert" is viewed by Arab communities in southern Israel as a means of expelling those who live this contested land.

Political correspondent Tal Schneider and documentary filmmaker Natan Odenheimer join host Jessica Steinberg on today's podcast. Schneider takes a deeper look at the arguments that broke out during Wednesday's Knesset session, regarding a bill that would allow thousands of illegally built homes, mostly in Arab communities and in Jewish settlements in the West Bank as well, to connect to the power grid. Likud politicians accused prime minister Naftali Bennett of caving to the Islamic Ra'am party in his coalition, causing Bennett to lose his cool. Schneider discusses the pressures Bennett is experiencing, and the fact that his predecessor, former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, was heading for the same power grid agreement. Odenheimer, one of the two creators behind The State of Jerusalem production company, discusses the third in the series of three shorts about Jerusalem. This one looks at the Israelization of Palestinians in Jerusalems, and why more Arabs living in Jerusalem are suddenly learning Hebrew and studying in Jewish Israeli institutions.

More than twenty years have elapsed since the United States last brokered a peace agreement between the Israelis and Palestinians. In that time, three presidents have tried and failed. Today's guest, Martin Indyk—a former United States ambassador to Israel and special envoy for the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations in 2013—has experienced these political frustrations and disappointments firsthand. To understand the arc of American diplomatic influence in the Middle East, Indyk returns to the origins of American-led peace efforts and to Henry Kissinger, the man who created the Middle East peace process. He is the author of the new book “Master of the Game: Henry Kissinger and the Art of Middle East Diplomacy.” He discusses the unique challenges and barriers Kissinger and his successors have faced in their attempts to broker peace between Israel and its Arab neighbors. Based on newly available documents from American and Israeli archives, extensive interviews with Kissinger, and Indyk's own interactions with some of the main players, the author takes readers inside the pivotal negotiations and reveals how American diplomacy operates behind closed doors. He argues that understanding Kissinger's design for Middle East peacemaking is key to comprehending how—and how not—to make peace.

  In today's episode of “Helping Families be Happy” podcast, host Dr. Carla Marie Manly, a practicing Clinical Psychologist, Wellness Advocate, and Author based in Sonoma County, California talks with Noa Baum, Writer, storyteller, Author, and Coach, about her book ‘A Land Twice Promised'. Noa discusses the power of storytelling that helps people bridge the differences and also reveals how she started doing workshops.   Episode Highlights 02:00: The guest, Noa, introduces herself and says that she grew up in Jerusalem, Israel and she was an actress there. 04:00 – Noa took the workshop with two prominent storytellers at her first National Storytelling Network Conference. The workshop was titled ‘The Importance of Telling Difficult Stories.' 06:30 – Noa talks about how she began telling personal stories. 08:30 – Noa took the conversations with her Palestinian friend and started recording them and this is how she created a one-woman show called ‘A Land Twice Promised', where she tells personal stories of mothers that echo the contradicting national narratives of Israeli people. 10:20 – Dr. Carla enquires about the title of the book – ‘A Land Twice Promised'. 12:30 – Noa's book – ‘A Land Twice Promised' embraces the core values of Familiar Publishing that allows people to work together through their differences, to come to a commonplace, and to heal together, says Dr. Carla. 15:10 - Dr. Carla asks Noa if she could share a few snippets from her book for the listeners that might give a list or the energy of her storytelling. 17:00 – Noa reads through the excerpt from the opening of her book for the listeners. 20:00 – Dr. Carla praises Noa saying that her book reflects that she is a wonderful storyteller at the same time it talks about transformation, unity, change, and the power of love and listening. 22:45 - We definitely can create a lot of peace not just within ourselves and within the other person but throughout the world because everything we do tends to make waves in one way or another, mentions Dr. Carla.   Three Key Points Noa realized from the responses that her story is not about mom's meeting on the playground, it's not even about Israelis and Palestinians but her story is about the power of storytelling, and the power of listening to the story of other people where their stories are so different and difficult. When Noa realized that this is the power of storytelling that helps the bridges, she started doing a lot of workshops. She still does workshops where she uses the power of stories in many different applications to help, people bridge the differences. The book is a journey into how do we change from a rigid place to a place that can embrace more complexity and paradox. It is also the story of Noa's life journey of the transformative relationship of this story had on her relationship with her mother. So it's a lot about the values of healing because she had to tell her mother's story.   Tweetable Quotes “I grew up in Jerusalem in Israel and I always wanted to be an actress.”– Noa Baum “So that trust did not build overnight.” - Noa Baum “It echoes the idea that people feel that the land was promised for them and they have proof, we all have a lot of proof.” - Noa Baum “As you were describing it, your friendship, there was plenty of laughter and play and love involved.” - Dr. Carla Marie Manly “As I started writing the book, I realized, well, how did I get there?” - Noa Baum “It sounds like that's a huge part of the energy of your book.” - Dr. Carla Marie Manly “I don't remember much of what that Palestinian man said.” - Noa Baum “Let me just add that it's not easy.” - Noa Baum   Resources Mentioned Helping Families be Happy Podcast Apple Dr. Carla Marie Manly Website LinkedIn Twitter   Instagram Noa  Baum Website Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Podcast Editing

In May 2021, the media breathlessly followed the 11-day armed conflict between Israel and Hamas, with hundreds of pundits appearing on television and commenting on social media to analyze the escalation of fighting. However, according to Middle East expert Jonathan Schanzer, much of the media missed many important details, opting for a version that ignores many of the complexities and nuances of the most recent conflict. Host Steven Shalowitz sits down with Jonathan to discuss his new book, Gaza Conflict 2021: Hamas, Israel, and Eleven Days of War, the history of Hamas and its conflict with other Palestinian factions, and the future of policymaking regarding Israel and Hamas.

2022: A Year of Recovery?

From Our Own Correspondent Podcast

What are you hoping for in the twelve months ahead? What might you be fearing? These are questions which we often ask ourselves at this time of year, and yet it is hard to imagine a year when they have felt quite so pressing. In this special, New Year's Day edition of From Our Own Correspondent, we hear about sentiment both optimistic and pessimistic, and about the efforts people are making to rebuild after a year of loss. Plus there is a look at why many people seem to be optimistic, whatever the challenges ahead. 2021 saw terrible, weather-related destruction, which many blamed on climate change. In California, more than eight thousand major fires broke out, their number and intensity a marked increase on what is normally seen there. Justin Rowlatt witnessed the resulting devastation, but says that amidst the burned out ruins, people were still holding out hope of recovery and reconstruction. There was plenty of destruction in 2021 that did not come from nature, war continuing to take its toll in many parts of the world. Ethiopia and Yemen were perhaps the worst examples, but there were also small-scale conflicts, like the insurgency in Myanmar. Then there were the conflicts which never really went away, like that between Israel and the Palestinians. An exchange of rocket fire with Gaza back in May, along with Israeli airstrikes, left more than two hundred dead, the overwhelming majority on the Palestinian side. When Tom Bateman went to Gaza, he met a woman trying to restart her life as a sculptor. The Coronavirus has been described as offering a lesson in humility, a challenge to our belief in humanity's power to control and manage the world around us. This tiny, sub-microscopic string of rogue DNA, has led to death on a scale most will not have experienced in their lifetime. At the same time though, vaccines and anti-viral drugs have been developed in response to Covid, which use new technologies that promise cures for other diseases in future. Rajini Vaidyanathan saw some of the worst of Covid, reporting from India where hundreds of thousands died, perhaps more than a million. But while off duty recently, she found herself struck by the effects of one individual death, in a place very familiar to her. People often talk about climate change in terms of future trouble ahead: rising sea levels, and crops no longer able to thrive. In the Pacific island nation of Fiji, whole villages have already had to be evacuated, because of current weather conditions, and what that weather is expected to do in the years ahead. Many Fijians traditionally have a strong attachment to the land they live on, so moving from their homes presents a challenge that goes way beyond mere inconvenience. When Megha Mohan visited, she found local people trying hard to retain a sense of connection to their original homes. Despite Covid, climate change, and all the other challenges which humanity faces, many remain optimistic that normal life can continue or be restored, or perhaps that something new, and better can emerge from the ashes of the old. In fact, according to Marnie Chesterton, most people are predisposed to have an optimistic outlook, and to believe there are solutions to the challenges we face.

Parallax Views w/ J.G. Michael

On this edition of Parallax Views, we have a double-header episode. First, free speech is an issue often discussed in American politics. One aspect of that discussion involves a movement called BDS, or Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions. The BDS movement seeks to pressure Israel on issues related to Palestinian human rights vis-a-vis the three measures of its initials. This has caused backlash from Israel and its supporters, including many evangelicals Christians in the United States. In an attempt to quash the BDS movement, the conservative organization ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) and certain states within the U.S. are seeking to put anti-BDS laws on the books. This led to Arkansas Times publisher Alan Leverett being asked to sign a pledge that his publication would make a pledge to Israel against BDS. Leverett refused on the grounds that the publication is neither for or against Israel, is focused on local issues of significance to Arkansas rather than the Middle East, and that said the state forcing such a pledge from the Arkansas Times violates both the 1st and 14th amendments. This has not only cost the publication in advertising revenue, but has also led to a court case in which the Arkansas Times is being supported by the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union). The case, Leverett says, is not so much about Israel/Palestine (Leverett's publication has no stance on this issue) but rather free speech. The case will likely go to the Supreme Court and has ramification for freedom of speech across America. Alan Leverett  joins us to discuss this case and its implications, which has gained more attention thanks to his November op-ed in the New York Times entitled "We're a Small Arkansas Newspaper. Why is the State Making Us Sign a Pledge About Israel?" Then, the Center for International Policy's William Hartung joined me to discuss the war in Yemen and how U.S. arms sales from the Obama, Trump, and Biden Presidencies have enabled the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to carry out deadly blockades and bombings on the Yemeni people. President Biden had promised to end the U.S. support for the war in Yemen. However, he is now signing off on an arms sale worth $650 million. Congress, both Senate and the House, are seeking way to block the sales from happening. Said attempt to block the sale has received bipartisan support with its proponents including Bernie Sanders, Rand Paul, Ilhan Omar, and Ro Khanna. William and I discuss all of this as well as the problem with Washington's foreign policy establishment aka the D.C. "Blob", the changing consensus around U.S. involvement in the Middle East, the arms race with China, progressives and conservatives working together on issues pertaining to war and peace, countering the slur of "isolationism" when criticizing U.S. foreign policy, and more.

Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the Nobel Peace Prize laureate who helped end apartheid in South Africa, has died aged 90. In 1986, Tutu became the first black Archbishop of Cape Town, which he used to great effect to help tear down apartheid. The current holder of that archbishopric, Thabo Makgoba, remembers his friend on Newshour. Also on the programme: Archbishop Desmond Tutu was a member of The Elders, which was set up by Nelson Mandela. The Elders Chair and former President of Ireland, Mary Robinson, recalls working beside him, recounting his commitment for causes from Palestinian rights to ending child marriage. And, Desmond Tutu's international campaign against apartheid opened the way for the ANC - the African National Congress - to come to power. We speak to a former ANC cabinet member.
