7:30 pm
unhinged war monger, one of those stupid voices, the goddess into the middle east quicksand. bolton is hardly alone in advocating for more weapons as a path to peace. as nato secretary general young stilton berg said this week, if we really want ukraine to prevail as a sovereign independent nation in europe than we need to support them now. military support to day makes it possible to reach a peace agreement tomorrow. but as long as president putin believes he can win on the battlefield, he will not sit down and engage in good faith. so the paradox is that actually military supports ukraine is the best way to achieve a peaceful, negotiated solution in the war, or for the war. sure, and stuffing your face and then all you can eat. buffet is also the key to weight loss, right. bolton has now added yet another crusade to his list. by the way, he's been running around talking about kicking turkey out of nato because turkish president, reject air to one is resisting sweden's integration into the alliance on swedish
7:31 pm
public tv. a few days ago. bolton called or to want a thug and a quote, mussolini in waiting, showing off his finely honed diplomatic skills. bowling regrets that more weapons haven't been sent to you. crane president joe biden has drawn the line at supplying fighter jets, which is a relief because, i mean, come on how many more items further down zalinski wishlist from fighter jets are things like news by may be buy it and we'll find a loophole in his own promise and just allow other countries to send their own f sixteens to ukraine as a senior pentagon official is told the western press recently, neil con interventionists like bolton, and military industrial complex stakeholders would certainly appreciate that effort for the latest news updates visit our website on t dot com. thank you for choosing auto international. ah
7:32 pm
ah ah, for over a century and a half the german question has been hotly debated during that time. germany was at the center of 2 world wars and the cold war. now it appears berlin is abandoning its post hitler policy, pacifism and non intervention. and again, russia is the enemy.
7:33 pm
ah, hello, i'm manila chan. you are tuned into modus operandi the show that explores the methods and patterns of foreign policy all around the world and the history that reverberates in our lives today. first, we will examine the multi decade conflict between israel and palestine. that has led to huge disparities in quality of life in this contested land. on one side, israel backed by the u. s. has grown into a thriving metropolis with a world class tech industry on the other palestine reduced to patches of its historic territories that some have described as open air prisons. the united nations carving out new states and the u. s. accused of aiding oppression. we'll
7:34 pm
discuss that coming up. all right, let's get into the em out. the very simply, not enough time to get into a nearly 75 year old land dispute, its actual borders still younger than many who witnessed its creation. the territory we now recognise on the map as israel, a state drawn up by the un in 1947 and rejected by the arab world. a year later is home to the world, 3 major religions, judaism islam, and christianity. these historic land then called palestine derived from the greek word salisia and the people who lived there as the philistines, dating back to the 12th century b. c. the now defunct league of nations gave the british the territorial control after world war one and the fall of the ottoman empire and $918.00. now,
7:35 pm
after some 20 plus years of british authority, a plan was devised to establish a jewish national homeland within palestine. thus carving up the land into a jewish state and an era stayed with both parties objecting to the other getting jerusalem. and that's just one crux of this multi pronged debate. the birth of israel in 1947. and since continued territorial expansion into gaza in the south and the west bank along the jordan river, 2 major wars, 194-8900. 67 displaced hundreds of thousands of palestinian arabs. those who remained in the territorial homeland say, they live in an apartheid state. and here to weigh in is huda amori. she's the co founder of the direct action network for palestine.
7:36 pm
she's joining us from the u. k. product is israel and apartheid. i mean, would you compare it to south africa between 1948, and 991. so i would describe all of her corneo state practices out apartheid, apartheid the word apartheid and africans, words which make means separateness. and to put it simply means a donation of one racial creep over another and to understand in the context of palestine. and we have some, some the formation of the apartheid state which began and $948.00. and what we call the max was translates into english as the great catastrophe. and this was when zionist militia boxed by western governments, both of leak spelled more than half of the indigenous population of palestine. i've destroyed over 500 towns and villages. i'm fullest protest in years into the corners of palestine which relates occupied by the zionist state in this post. i
7:37 pm
feel who killed many families and many atrocities against the indigenous population of palestine and 967. my own family was forcibly remains from palestine. and what we see now is that the system of ethnic cleansing pulsing policies out this racial domination over them continues to this day. if anything it gets worse as time goes on. so for example, in the west bank, palestinians are constantly under threats of losing their homes. and this is normally in order to make way for the efforts, funding, illegal, israeli, 70 settlements. and i'm out of this works. it basically means that any, any palestinian who is exiled from palestine, which is over $6000000.00 policy in refugees, including millions in refugee camps. 11 johnson do not have the right to return to
7:38 pm
their home. they don't have the right to attend to palestine. but any jewish across the world has the right bye as well, to come and live in one of the settlements on top of the rubble of policy and home . and all since about this process and policy is may be given a 30 day notice by is whether it's holds that they have to demolish their own home in this timeframe. or they have all pay the cost to the occupier. bella cost them to demolish that home and if they don't do this, then they will use a procedure which often involves both those as which are bought by western companies like caterpillar and j. c. b and weaponized news to demolish policy in communities. and this is interesting, please holmes, it's schools and they as soon as types, water pipes, basic infrastructure for policy has to be able to live on top of this. polishing is
7:39 pm
live on a different set of laws than yours was very late. so the policy in the civilian law, valium, operate, sorry, polishing his name on the military law, whereas they live on say, on disability in law. and what this means in practice is that policies are often detained without charge, which is a horrific practice which is committed against them. but when they do go to call that facing the israeli military courts which have over 99 percent conviction, right. what are living conditions like in israeli occupied regions such as the bid do enclave communities near northwest jerusalem, where israeli authorities have basically cordoned off the area with a wall that some of likened to the berlin wall. now israel has basically separated this little area from the rest of jerusalem and the west bank, i understand palestinians have to commute through
7:40 pm
a tunnel controlled by israel. can you describe these conditions for us that these communities live in? yeah, definitely. so often polishing communities, and i mean literally they all would use terrible whenever these homes are demolished. and the fact that they kind of the bells offered me as you know, there's a stark contrast between where you may see in a jewish very neighborhood to a policy community neighborhood. because i deny the basic ability to be able to build. busy build and develop and this includes the sewage system, which means that you know, for palestinians, they are not able to adequately survival built into shape because best sewage systems are often destroyed. and the water pipe systems often destroy. but on top of it, what you see is a resilience by palestinians, by they are using water tanks to collect rate for water to try and build that self
7:41 pm
sufficiency away from relying on on the occupy. but also for palestinians living wonder occupation. they are subject to checkpoints on a daily basis if they want to gets from a to bay, they have to go through checkpoint, so israeli soldiers or bass. i'm also people are harassed on the checkpoints and sometimes killed on the checkpoints or forced to wait for hours on end just to sometimes get to get to the local shop or get to school or get to your place of what as well as the constant humiliation upon the palestinians, even women have been forced to gift bass on the checkpoints because the soldiers would refuse to allow them to go to go to the hospitals. on the other side of those of those tech pines, palestinian territories are among the poorest in the world. 80 percent of the population relies on foreign aid to survive. according to the world bank,
7:42 pm
the nominal g. d. p of palestinian areas are about $4000000.00 us dollars. while in rails nominal g d p. r. an astounding 100. $61000000.00 us dollars. what are the main drivers of this economic disparity? i think the main drivers of this is that they can design and say carries out not only a policy of trying to keep palestinians captive in their own lines. but also by keeping that economy completely captive. whether that's a deliberate lated, molly shamed infrastructure that policy is need to bills that industries and destroying often, businesses, schools, hospitals, other things that people need and it's bells and economy. these are deliberately trust by the zionist state. but on top of this, the policy and economy and for electricity and water is all makes it so that they
7:43 pm
are reliant on the occupy to be able to gain access to electricity and water. so they have to pay the costs to that occupier, to that quote un, either in a to, to gain these basic services which are often much lower quality than what syria his radio would enjoy. i'm the same as for the telecommunications industry, for example, where policy and service providers have to basically be distributing. and that from the bailey says survivors. so policy is end up in a situation where they're paying that double the price for a much lower quality. and we know, for example and gaza that they had, you know, that the used to about 4 hours of electricity a day. but on top of this recei examples of things when palestinians are attempting to build self sufficiency and build their own economy about having to rely on the occupy and any attempts to do this are trusts. for example,
7:44 pm
solar panels are built that will be destroyed by israeli soldiers, but also donations from european countries is on belgium. i believe when they donate to solar panels to try and help policies be self sufficient. rather than deny them access, they're completely destroy them. to ensure that they could not and but they were, had to be relying on and on design as they may do this deliberately in order to control the palestinians and carry out the system of trying to drive them out of their homes and keep the jewish bailey as the dominant and as a dominant race and historic palestine. bye think. why he's one of the biggest the most disturbing examples of this is when we see gaza and we see that god has been kind of brutal blockades lives and c blockades over 15 years. that denied that been
7:45 pm
denied and that fee to me meant so people cannot leave. i'm can only on very rare occasions and the same goes for basic guts. so i on top of this and tell them being one of the most densely populated areas where 80 percent of refugees and the majority of children. they are routinely bombarded and assaulted by as well. i bay often and these attacks they've destroyed hospitals, clinics and ambulances. the only functional power plants in gaza businesses, homes and schools on many occasions as well as every time this happens. not only are they destroying the ability for policies to have an economy and develop their own appointments and also disjoint people's lives and take you live on top of this. companies like out. but systems is of largest dance that use
7:46 pm
these opportunities as a way of testing batten's. and they literally market them is bottled tested by proven. and this gives them an advantage in the globe of landscape. and it means that they can sell on these drones weapons missiles and times i use against the palestinians to other countries, so they can develop that own economy and that arm straight on the back of destroying palestine. hota, maury, thank you so much for your time today. then coming up next, we'll take a look at the current political situation in the disputed and occupied territories across israel and palestine. critic say the palestinian authority share in the blame. we'll discuss it when we return. sit tight. the ammo will be right back. i oh
7:47 pm
ah ah, with the me these days in the us be accepted
7:48 pm
conflation of anti semitism and anti zionism movements like b b s which is boy hot divest and sanction the power of the purse here in the states being labeled as racist and anti semitic or even anti jewish state governments banning such practices in a parent moved to restrict choice by the public. now after a multitude of failed external government interventions between israel and palestine. can any ally shift the tide? here to discuss is adam shapiro. he is the director of advocacy for dawn, which stands for democracy for the arab world. now he has expertise in israel and palestine. adam 1st to give the viewers a little bit of background as to who you are. is it fair to describe you as a jewish american, native new yorker,
7:49 pm
activists for peace between israel and palestine, and even having lived in the west bank for some time to some extent. i don't know if i would just for myself as a jewish american. ready or into a jewish family but i. ready i don't consider myself to be jewish in the sense of the city or nationality or any sort of identity. and i do consider my brooklyn, it's one point somebody. and then finally, just say i, i think my activism in my work, it's not so much about t. ringback as much as justice and i do believe the only way to to get to. ringback ready i think it's an important distinction to make that being anti zionist or anti israeli government is different right, than being anti semitic. i mean, is that fair and how might you expand on that distinction? the, the issue today has been some weaponized to target activists.
7:50 pm
peace, people seeking peace and basically all palestinians. ready who challenge. ready legitimacy of the occupation with legitimacy the currently exists. ready operates in what many c as a folio colonial state, as well as an apartheid state. and all of those things that i've described are all . ready violations of international law law or human rights law and have nothing to do with, you know, an ideology of zionist ideology. if design, if i wasn't distinct, it was distinct from a nation building settlement. the process of the state of israel design isn't effectively the political. ready ideology of the state of israel with whatever
7:51 pm
israel does with may have been a time in the past where there was a distinction in those. ready who are more interested in the settler moving versus those who are more interested in different kinds of movement. and there was a debate within zionism as to what would be the future of them. but today we have defacto 9. ready that is effectively and manifestly expanding apartheid control. ready and. ready overpower. ready today to be effectively to. ready be anti off secretions. the anti part in the is really government is today the entity that is carrying that out against any ins. the fact. ready if you are anti zionist, you're lining yourself up against what. ready ready is doing, it's not about the existential interest in something really politician or another politician. it's about policy when it comes to the symmetry. ready however, this is a very real tangible form of racism that is directed not just against jews but
7:52 pm
against anyone who are from or submit. it can. ready that is the root of land. ready now it's coming to me and discrimination against juice because of the use of deployment in the last and in particular by those who are supportive of. ready policy so the distinction between what is who is doing it, deploying. ready complaining about an estimate semitism and those who are complaining or organizing against anti israel or activism. ready those people are trying to eliminate the distinction between. ready ready ready governments. ready as well as some of those of us who are trying to. ringback signed up for comments and you know, it's often find us often having to also articulate or having to but also articulating and sending. so they're ready with those were victims of including jews around the world who suffer. so for instance. ready i call when. ready the
7:53 pm
tree of life synagogue pittsburgh was attacked and what was indeed very clearly an . ready medical attack by a right wing immigrant minded person hearing i said many people from. ready the palestinian american news organized to help support because they saw this as an act of racism regardless of what the label and inactive. ready discrimination had nothing to do with israel or israel. ready doing what israel is doing is practicing on a mission and violence and racism against other people and other people by the way, for submit it. so it's, it's almost there on it. if it was a. ready service this year, there was outraged, over the deliberate killing of a renowned palestinian and american journalist, sharina oakley, by the idea of the state department has effectively accepted this as a fact. it's true after
7:54 pm
a very vague and tacit admission by israeli authorities. however, despite her holding a u. s. passport the state department has stopped short of issuing any sort of rebuke or punishment. why do you think that is? will it will be clear to start with what the demand has been from the family and still in the. ready family as well as an increasing number of american congress. people and senators is a demand that the united states government. ready ready fund or the. ready white house, authorize an f b i investigation. so even before we get to the. ready point of view of the nation, the family is still insisting that there be an investigation which if you think about it, there's already been a number of investigations like very credible for civil putting media outlets. and washington post. ready times united nations like mission for human rights in office . there islam has conducted investigation and submitted similar findings,
7:55 pm
israeli organizations that sell them. and now most recently forensic architecture of all basically come to the same. and yet, despite all of that, despite all of the investigation that has been gone up, what has gone on already? evidence collected, the family is still asking for an american investigation. so i think for the f b i to go into one and they're not saying go and find this person guilty or go and find that person guilty there. go there saying please go find out what happened to our sister, to our, to our daughter, her family member. and this is what post the news your call is for also in an investigation. and this is what is it perhaps the motion of the united states has gotten to the point where it. ready is offering the demand offer view in the us will. ready off this is pulling off simply going and sending it seems to look and see what happens. that's in some ways more down and shows
7:56 pm
a level i would. ready cowardice, even if we imagine the best case scenario from a justice standpoint. if we were to imagine the f b, i would, conducting the investigation, determine that as the others have determined, that she was deliberately targeted, that there is a soldier who is responsible for that. perhaps the. ready commander ordered the shot fired, that's possible. so let's say. ready quote unquote best case scenario to. ready soldiers where. ready the sniper and his command. ready were arrested raso according as well, or perhaps even extradited united states and put on trial. we really think that that would change or alter the overall policy could be. ready and the dollars. ready that would be flowing to. ready absolutely not. i can't believe that is that the same congress, people who vote every year's year after year to year to maintain this relationship
7:57 pm
with them, to send american taxpayer money overseas in this way. with all of a sudden, abandoned that over time of one person. as much as i'd like to think so from injustice standpoint, the re, i think this is what makes it even more all the more curiosity that the killing of even one person they can their accountability for that is so dangerous. ready and risky united states that it makes this country. ready absolutely, it shows where the real power is, it's not sitting in washington. ready it's sitting adam shapiro, appreciate your time with us today. thank you. this disputed land now called israel is not only desired territory, fought over by israelis or palestinians. this swath of land as far over by external powers in the west and the east, the west proving to be the kingmaker in the region. that's going to do it for me. i'm manilla chan. thank you for being with us as we explore the ammo.
7:58 pm
