It's time we had a discussion on the violence in Israel and the media's complicity in it. John and Producer Steve sit down and examine the events that have led up to the current violence. They then look at the rockets being fired from Gaza into Israel, the Iron Dome catching nearly all of them. Israel retaliates, doing all they can to minimize civilian casualties. But the media only report if there are casualties in Gaza, regardless of who caused it. They unilaterally condemn Israel and favor Palestinians. It's all part of Hamas's strategy to diminish Israel in the eyes of the world. The strategy is working because the media play their part.
We have commented regularly on the program about the persecution of Uyghur Muslims in China. Today, we interview an advocate for them, Salih Hudayar (east-turkistan.net), Prime Minister of the East Turkistan Government-in-Exile. He discusses China's reinstatement onto the UN Human Rights Council and gives details of the persecution inside of China's re-education camps, including forced organ transplants.
John finishes up the podcast today with a sobering and sometimes graphic update on religious persecution, not only in China, but also in Pakistan, Egypt, Russia, Nigeria, and Kenya.
