Now everybody there breaking news and we got a lot I want to start with our offering our prayers for the President who is been diagnosed with covert so this is obviously breaking the all the networks are covering it, which they have to reworking from the White House.the peers that the symptoms right now are minimal and is on Plaxo, but which is the antiviral drug you think a lot of people up to this breaking news everyone is covering it right now so we fear we had to come on here as well try to focus exclusively on this today with a great show lined up some really incredible cuts from all over the world.

We did was start off with this breaking news.

Again, this kind of taken over the news media coverage this morning which is that Pres. Biden has tested positive for COBIT. We know there's a large uptick in covert around the world.

So it's not shocking. In some ways, that after his international Saudi Arabia and then bickered back nine states in his unit is there so much protection you can do a means of present United States is going be meeting with you and that's part of the It's okay to ask some questions which is now he's in his 80s news. Honestly, it's a validated yet they all have a target. It's about. It's a concern with any age, but that's honestly sort of one of the higher risk demographic is what this kind of process looks like. I think beyond just Pres. Biden has covert opens up a lot of questions on the network Sunday America people he allowed there were some cover. This Artie sank okay what that look like if the if the President has to yet when we do powers have to switch when do things have to happen because it happens temporarily from time to time throughout presidency.

We have continuity in government procedures and laws in place so there's not your never to have a gap in the present. That's why we have vice presence are times where Presidents have gone under surgery have temporarily transferred power to the vice President and the price vice President is in the role of President so that tells the world more stable country.

It tells our institutions. It's a stable environment, he's nowhere near that come from what were gathering. Again, our wishes and look at the politics aside on this present United States may disagree with every policy has you don't wish anybody harm Outlook present from head covert now Pres. Biden has covered most of us unfortunately had experience with COBIT I metadata my own family. Mike, my brother passed away from COBIT year ago. Most next week so look, we will pray for recovery, but there is a process in place so you have a continuity of government but the framers were very wise in this way, vice President, by the way that you know that we say the vice President's one step away from what's most important job vice President prepared me present, even if it's temporarily so we have a continuity in government procedure in place. It's there to protect our institutions and our constitutional republic.

And that's the way it works even in a time like this is nowhere near that at this point will continue coverages. If necessary we are to move on in the next few segments in excitement.

Discuss what's going on in terms of the leap.

I heard the border and that planes and the buses that are coming into these big liberal cities. And guess what, you have a city like New York state like New York in these areas that now all of a sudden their tune changing when thousands and thousands of people are showing up in a nothing for them to do nowhere for them to go to any kind, mostly join us in the next segment but look New York Mayor Adams said they are proud to be a sanctuary city and now he saying I was like a year ago and now he saying that we can't do this if were are there institutions or social network is overrun, they can't meet the demand are asking for federal government help.

How come the media doesn't jump on New York. When they asked for help. But when Texas or Arizona asked for help. It's a constitutional crisis when I can help.

The assorted is a politically politics on that would give her a talk about that you'll hear clips from the mayor himself. And we also can have on any kind of an exit request. Smith later on Rick Grenell and Jeff Balaban both come from is really big reports matter. Today I will be pretty interesting to hear the rest of the shows.

Make sure you stay tuned for watching on social media share this broadcast with different that's how people see that some more people get the information is you shares if you're watching right now on Facebook click that share but right now as we go into a quick break.

We will be right back. In the meantime, support the work of the ACLJ to do that regard ACLJ.org we are in the middle of our matching challenge right now. That means if you give a donation of alternations are effectively doubled. Right now that ACLJ.B) advertise itself, I do say that the right word I guess is promoted itself by hanging out right about it being a sanctuary city that they wanted people are coming country illegally welcomed in Manhattan welcome to New York and we have clips on it right with clips were bitterly talked about that will play some of those a little bit here, where they specifically said yet we have what one coming up. I think from we went from just this week that is become a burden after they got all that object gets out, so some they were welcoming.

They were the biggest thing for a city. We welcome these aliens to our short kind of approach and then the reality hit and the reality is that we have said this on this broadcast for a long time them that whether you're living in Texas or Arizona or California border states, whether you're in Manhattan or Atlanta or a town in Mississippi this situation with an unregulated unprotected border is wreaking havoc and now Andy it's the mayor of New York is saying it's wreaking havoc on their systems to take their social service systems. That's not a surprising result, you're a sanctuary city or welcoming the world documented and undocumented. That's a very altruistic and wonderful concept and idea to have come one come all come to New York will take care of you. But then the reality sets in.

About taking care of you when you get them first. You got the house them.

You got to call them, you've got to feed them. You've got to treat them for medical illnesses both psychological illnesses and physical alien clear human beings that eat and you didn't get to do it with dignity there so you rarely leverage human beings you got to do with dignity and they can't they just can't do it. That's the problem lets you IJ I'm not saying that the naiad, but the burden that is on there is finally being realized by the mayor right. I'm not saying don't give people medical help when they need it.

Of course we do that, but then don't campaign on the platform of come one, come all, this is a sanctuary city and finally and you see the reality between politicking and campaigning and governing rights a different world altogether and Mayor Adams is now finally realize this as the other people in the mayors and other notices. City counselors are seeing in other parts of the United States. It's not an easy thing to welcome and the same time to treating the daycare of let's compare and contrast the mayor, Mayor Adams, this was just about 10 months ago, back in October. He put out a tweet. Let's get up on the screen it says we should protect our immigrants. Yes, New York will remain a sanctuary city under an Adams administration and that we can was from October 20, 2021 so not all that long ago. About 10 months ago and then let's hear from the mayor when was this yesterday yesterday. This mayor yesterday. This is a real voting on New York is as we try to do the right thing. We already, as I stated, we already have an overburdened shelter system. So now we talking about. As you stated, clothing, school, people are commenting about this because you see mayor outside right now are overwhelmed as to what's going on. We are over burden shelter. Since we know the homeless crisis throughout the country has has skyrocketed him into any major city. It is mass. Currently, we brought up point, but sometimes people with these this attrition happened. There are some states who need populace yes would normally this was so unusual about this. So first they were trying to blame Texas and Arizona for sending the these folks to New York City.

Both Texas and Arizona said that's not true. In fact, there is video of aircraft coming into New York from the federal government moving these folks are normal. You bring a populace that you've allowed into the country legally or illegally. You bring them to less populated areas where there is a need for labor, there's a better capability of taking care of people they pick New York the federal government did this at Hanseatic because New York supporting this welcome and thank you but you got when you got them mayor of New York City Mayor Adam saying that he is now asked the federal government to provide aid to support the city's migrants continue to pour in. Pour in is what he saying Andy not trickle in for in this is a policy failure that's now impacting Manhattan and Brooklyn and Queens that's Friday and it's a policy failure and that's the difference between politicking on one platform and actually governing in the realities of the situation. He says it's an undue burden, and I also noted in his statement that he talks about our clients we have to serve our clients. I guess he means the populace of New York that is there, plus those that are coming in and he's treating them as clients will that's a good thing to do that you said we don't want anyone to starve or freeze or be sweltering and that he'd in this summer of hate that we have. But at the same time we have to be realistic about it and we can go running to the federal government every time and start asking for money and a because we are undue burden. We should think about what we say in our political statements and think about what the realities of governing really mean it's interesting that the spokesperson for a government remember the blame Texas for sending these people. New York said that they state has only bus migrants to Washington DC and only if they wanted to go there and he said that's been about 5100 people in the quote as if these Democratic mayors are now that concerned about having migrants in their cities, they should call on Pres. buying to do his job and secure the border.

Instead of attacking Texas with baseless political accusations. The same can be said of Arizona dating send anybody there either. This this is the way it's being politicized now and you got these are human beings. There are are in the situation. Some of them are brought in there by these cartels and that this is serious stuff, but now you got Manhattan, which is got enough problems as it is, quite frankly, having to deal with the slogan on top of it yet have a lot of problems right now and unfortunately they were probably hit the hardest with the covert crisis and they were hit goat to Manhattan right now. You'll see storefronts that have just been vacated it. It just feels otherworldly as someone who lived there to visit there right now. Thankfully, things are starting to turn. Things are starting to come back a little bit stronger in New York but we brought on to revenge the Taliban had a special I hosted back last year during the Afghanistan crisis when there was a refugee situation where people were coming and I was remember those big pictures of your writing delays to get to America and you did have some like James light from Oklahoma said we bring in thousand, we want thousands of people to come and not tens of thousand hundred thousand but will take two or 3000 driver was because we've seen in Oklahoma as we've done this regularly as we brought in the state. Inevitably become thriving members of our community. The create business they bring in money, it becomes a good part in a state like Oklahoma that does need it.

Then you have New York which feels like the opposite of the plague.

Mayor Adams statement about the system failures that they're having right now exists shows you how real this is the New York advertise sanctuary city where everybody's welcome, that sounds great until you actually have to do it so we say in our system is always already overburdened track of these states are sending people to New York without any communication of coordination that correct that is not correct. So that was that the person he said is a fact there overburdened their system failures as fact that he says the states are sending people to New York without any communication reported Smith not true. So that's the federal government is in people to New York, but not the states.

So let's get the facts right and then at the same time you and will save this one for I think the next segment you got the head of Homeland security saying how secure the border risk. Once we play them. Yeah, this is this a wide this policy is making no sense. Take a listen is the border safe.

Now I'm watching a news channel and their feminine invasion was happening on the concerns the border border is secure the border. We are working to make the border more secure.

That is in a historic challenge the border and he is not secure. They stopped building a wall which was a prince to keep protect our border. They de-escalated with the agents can do on the border catch and release is one of them. So this idea. I don't what world the Sec. of Homeland security is living in but it's not the real one. It's not the world of reality is absolutely correct. Listen wall work J you and I have been to Jerusalem, I have been there seven times on missions for the ACLJ there is a wall. The wall works and brought peace to the region, due largely as a result of the wall. There are, of course, instances where that piece erupts that is inevitable, but we had a wall going under Pres. Trump that was working. Pres. Biden stops it. He then starts up portions of it again. The catch and release idea ridiculous.

These people are not going to come back for immigration hearings right now you have people that audience laugh or you hear them laughing at this when there are thousands of 1/4 million people that are coming through the border every month during the extreme heat and all the stuff happening right now that it really does feel a little less humanitarian. Maybe the left likes to betray themselves when you're laughing about a secure border laughing about people who are suffering, trying to even people who are escaping you're still there. You are humanizing it through dehumanizing when they start laughing at your fully right.

Admittedly, the beach began to treat these people in human beings because they are even that they're here illegally and of course the American filter the societal functions that are necessary but why are we shocked I would get more on this coming up talk to us on air 1-800-684-3110 back with more moment we are covering the breaking news is that Pres. Biden has tested positive for Cove in 19 we know that he has been treated with mild symptoms right now so I know it's a piercing the title covered a lot the very beginning of the show alive.

You're just joining us right after watching on social media see that breaking news happened when actually you know we have covered it currently is not a whole lot of information give other than the US a really good question earlier other than he is currently experience some symptoms.

It is recover area zero and the path willfully recovered.

So we'll see what happens here you'd mentioned in the beginning because people were asking a mental minute was recoverable. What is the continuity of government summary it's really knows his or near that situation but what we have continuity in government.

That's why a vice President and they can temporally transfer power. They do it formally but it doesn't appear that the President is anywhere near that we hope and pray for a speedy recovery. Again put politics aside when people are sick.

So the question I think is that horse think it's a valid question. We are not really lived through it on the whole generation that hasn't our multi-generation how they haven't lived through anything happening to a sitting President really that was a capacity other than for moments or minutes. So the question start to arrive sure but there like I said there is a continuity of government and and there's no indication that were anywhere near that that's what you have vice President for going beyond that goes into the speaker of the house and then goes to the Secretary of State and there's a whole process or write what Smith is joining us and he is up with us remotely and I want to ask a border question before we get into the situation in China, which is another one that but we talked about yesterday with Mike on premises of really serious up on the border West that you had the Homeland security Sec. say hey what the border secure, but the board is not secure.

Absolutely it is a complete obvious break from reality by by virtually everyone when he says that even people on the left, rolled her eyes a bit and it is not secure and in that directly impacts another security and that is national security.

As we talked about during a meeting before radio today. In the last four years, there were 30 people apprehended her on the terrorist watch list. In this fiscal year. There've Artie been 56 apprehended and we don't know about the once a getaway. Okay, so I will repeat that because this is a big number.

So in the last four years. We caught at the border, which is still significant 30 people that are already on so there's Artie been a designation that there on the terror watch list this year alone we are not over this year, 56 people had been apprehended on the terror watch list.

This is not just a border security issue, which of course it is. But it is a national security issue. Andy as well. 56 individuals designated on the terror list terror watch list got into the night, say like we say we have not tried again dances with no idea how many got your throat to that will never say or J. Given that reality, the undeniable reality that the terror watch list. Basically other people have infiltrated has doubled from 30 to 56. How in the world can sec. my York as get up in front of the world and say the border secure the border is not secure. There is no mechanism that is in place the seal off the border of the United States in the southwestern part of the United States from California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. It's not happening and that's their infiltrating in other areas as well. Not just in the southwestern part United States are coming into other areas are border is porous. It is like a sieve and is letting you not only people who are sick and ill and who are terrorists, but also have coven who have also of the illnesses drug draft drug dealers join traffic learners, human smugglers and so forth.

And nothing is being done effectively to prevent by this administration know I think they're not there not dealing with this in a real way so that is consequence the bad policies about hospitals because no talk about China, so Wes Pres. Biden's schedule. I'm sure he still will do it. Assuming he stays okay to have a real conversation with the chairman of the Chinese coming party challenging but he's also at the same time and we talked about this and if it broadcast the President is cast doubt on the Pelosi trip to Taiwan which might pump it was on things under states that we should show our support for our ally. There's no way that another government you will tell third ranking member of of our government but they can go here for the President himself and asked about this week (Jalisco 2 x 12 well II military faith is not a good idea right now with your girls so what the military doesn't is a good idea right now. What is it is no ice obviously does not necessary. In an article coming up in your websites and call Biden muddles his way through the Middle East and it talks about how his statements both prepared and off-the-cuff, do not match his policies and actions.

Frequently the same thing is going on with Taiwan and China now give some examples of that. There's a lot of tension over Taiwan. While this is going on. Pres. Biden is considering lifting the tariffs that we have own China and Chinese product. Even though date they protect US companies and US workers he's thinking about lifting the tariffs.

But while you think about lifting the terrace.

He is also launching an investigation into Chinese buying controlling stalking US companies and also trying to dominate certain sectors like the semi conductor sector. So that's the opposite of the other. Meanwhile, his expressed frustration that China is not now living up to its existing commitments with our trade agreements, but in the middle of this. He says maybe Pelosi, you shouldn't go to Taiwan. He is all over the board J it's hard to keep up with exactly what his policies are, you know, when we talk about the shift in summary, I am really concerned with and that is the Chinese Communist Party owns companies. If you're a company in China made a very company different. But if you're a Chinese company. Guess what your own by the Chinese Communist Party they're buying land immediately adjacent to a base that you said yesterday. Col. Smith was one of our most secured for intelligence gathering and satellite working as a very sensitive Air Force Base Grand Forks Air Force Base ice involved with our satellite the satellites it actually enable communication with all branches of the military worldwide. It is also the headquarters for our drone technology, and so they wanted to buy land close to the base because the Chinese government, and he wants to get into the farming business. Nobody believes this yeah right there interested in the coming end of the United States to help promote agriculture undergoing a plant agricultural products on Atlantis are you kidding you know are you making these statements to this is an inconsistent policy for you to reduce the tariffs so we have more Chinese products and then condemned them for trying to corner the market on certain things buying land near our bases. There were sensitive areas of the United States having Chinese front companies and I've experienced with those personally J having Chinese front companies buying land near our bases and at the same time saying to giving a mixed signal as to whether the third ranking eyes United States official, with whom I disagree.

By the way, on every policy statement that she utters Nancy Pelosi is nonetheless the speaker of the house, sending a mixed message on whether she should go to Taiwan where is the President landing ABC DEF where we don't know what you know what we are working on a fellow at the American Center for Law and Justice NACLJ action are looking and working right now on the situation with China buying this property of his military bases, or director of a bargain repairs project are ACLJ action team Mike Pompeo, former sector, state, or senior counsel, global affairs where everybody's on so this is serious your support the ACLJ right now. That was absolutely critical when a matching challenge campaign will get near the end of the month. Where are 3% behind. We want to catch that up and want to close that gap your support the ACLJ can really make a difference@aclj.org, local 20 what happens. That's right NACLJ.org to make a donation. Simply your to do anything else there somebody on the other side of the donor waiting to match that donation pledged to dissuade the donation come through the second half hour of secular coming up your PR local station finds broadcast NACLJ.the American Center for Law and justice were engaged in critical issues at home and abroad for limited time you can participate in the ACLJ matching challenge for every dollar you donate will be mass $10 gift becomes $20, $50 gift becomes 100 protecting the constitutional and religious freedoms you forgive today online keeping you informed and now is J secular broadcast and we got a lot of top. We've already covered with covered China.

We covered the border issue. We are of course breaking news relevant, you could deal with this is breaking news regarding the presence health breaking news is that Pres. Biden has tested positive for coded this is something we know he's been traveling overseas and all these. This seems to be happening more more right now we see the optic he did put out a statement, just a short time ago you're watching right now will show you the tweet that he put up we get that up there, there goes is it folks doing great. Thanks for your concern just called Sen. Congressman's and bears into an indiscretion cousins to send my regret for missing our event today keeping busy is a picture of him get the job done.

He took the picture but you whatever is telephoto lens of an interesting that they have a they're having put out the statements because I think it opens up. Look at sets of the left that would lead. It's a serious situation still serious situation. Years later, and American people to conserve and stuff like this happens when I surely reset shows you knew that was the breaking news item as we headed to the next segment of the broadcast ribbing on Israel and hear people do different gas who are regulars Ozzie Jeff Albom from our office in Israel and recruit out who is currently there's Percy packet Jerusalem right now so should be pretty interesting second half hour. Here is where the picture that you saw PGP put your listening on radios is a picture of the President's workout at a desk that is right outside of the part of the residence. So in the residence.

They have what's called the there's a map room there's all these other rooms there's a upper oval this the oval office upstairs. That is more a seating area but in there. All the rooms right there for the President's workout. So again, in the normal process we are going to go to to all live reports from Israel because there's a lot happening there and working here from Rick Grenell is been in Israel for a week and working to hear.

Also, from Jeff Albom who is based in our office in Jerusalem a lot you don't know this when we talk about the issues in Israel and our defense of Israel.

What you need to understand is we have an operating office of the American Center for Law and just not an Israeli center for lunch is the American Center for Law and Justice based in Jerusalem and right in the heart of Judaism overlooks the temple mount. I mean, it's a great location but also strategic location for our work in the greater Middle East which is picked up significance.

Obviously, over the last couple years. So when the Abraham records working on we we had influence on on on policies they are weeping to the international criminal Court in the Hague of presenting Israel's position. They don't go to the Hague as a member, but their position before the tribunals they have done that for the United States as well as not a member by Pitts presented the US position at the international comportment take a lot of that work comes out of our office in Jerusalem. Of course, also impacting Jerusalem, Israel itself. There's a lot of issues moving present by just came back from the Middle East was in Israel.

Palestinian Authority felt like they got nothing in the truth of the matter is, is why the Abraham records have worked the new alignment of partners in the Middle East with Israel have presented the Palestinians with the dilemma and that is that of a failed government. They have a corrupt government. They have a government that rewards people that kill civilians. So guess what the rest of the world, including the rest of the Muslim and Arab world are turning on them. Why because they know it is a corrupt system and that is not bringing people generally want peace, not every group wants peace, but there's a lot of people are really set one piece that's raising relation between Saudi Arabia and Israel so significantly increase but we have an office in Jerusalem to your support for the ACLJ has a direct and huge impact. That's why we want to come and be part of a matching challenge campaign. That's right, you can do that easily. Going ACLJ.org or downloading the ACLJ app and make any donation you don't have to do anything special for department matching challenge. Every donation made in the month of July is that they say. What does that mean I'll just tell you again that means is another donor was Artie pledged to make that match so they give $10 becomes $20,000 it becomes $2000, and so on and so on whole group of donors that come in for these months and pledge this really amazing that they do it just to cutting credible content ACLJ.R, we discussed a lot of it today. You got it. Spent some time on this website time on our app really get yourself formed as a right to Jerusalem. We got our senior advisor for our national intelligence and security, Rick Grenell, former director of national intelligence, former Bowser Germany who's in Jerusalem right now and he is joining us from Jerusalem. So Rick give me your sense on the ground that you present buying was just there kinda came back very empty-handed to say the least. Now there's even some friction between some of the governments because there were all these accords going into place that you worked on the Abraham records. Of course it will all work on so pleased with and the United States is not try to assert themselves in this is the report right now that there was a mere security or regional security alliance, but the United States basically want to run it and it got all these government saying that's not the way we envision this happening in your ear assessment you're on the ground there while were here right after Pres. Biden, and there's a lot of conservative center. But right now for doing this Deepak conference here in Jerusalem actually last night we were in Tel Aviv and had a crowd of about 3000 people so I think it's pretty clear that conservatives in America, conservative, and Israel are hungry to step up and try to make a difference where were watching as Pres. Biden and the world is really just in crisis mode. I think what our allies and friends, and others are are noted is exactly what we have been watching in all the videos. Biden, not the fight is mispronunciation.

The mistakes hidden blunders and and I think what's happening in the world is being America right now, not leading, and so when America and the State Department and the Biden administration stepped forward. They would like to organize something in the region. The regional players.

The leaders in the in the Middle East are staying know we've watched you flounder in Afghanistan. We watched you say that you only want 90% of the people, and we don't want you organized enough its interests as some sort of note to myself as a follow-up in the Afghanistan situation. I think that moment with Afghanistan really change the trajectory on what we exited Afghanistan really change the trajectory and how we reviewed globally because it was not only week it was chaotic. We lost 13 number more than that now. But 13 Americans in the military. It was a chaotic withdrawal. It was not planned properly look like exiting Vietnam and Hanoi, the famous helicopter lips and we had the airplane situation. She see all that happening and you say to yourself, these policies of Kelly.

That's one thing if if if the President and of stumbles on a word that's one thing but when the policy is being implemented. That's another and it's the policy problems that are harming a tremendous amount of progress was made in the Middle East with regional partners of Israel including Jordan and Egypt you note, the Gulf states really Saudi Arabia that I know they were than if I know you were working on this. I know others were working. I we all were working on.

This is such a big opportunity. Saudi Arabia was good to be the next country to sign onto the Abraham records but I think everybody and I said and I think the cooperation between Israel and Saudi Arabia still very good. But we have to be honest and that the United States is a player in this right now is very destabilizing and let's be honest. Also, the Israeli government coalitions fall apart so therefore he destabilized over there to look, I don't think that you can talk about is without top exactly what you are saying about that identification came in and decided to ostracize Saudi Arabia mock them and and and what they were doing was sending a message to Iran that they wanted to negotiate and they want to show Iran that they could beat up on Saudi Arabia and now are working because of Christ.

Because of the regional instability member that who if these were taken off the terrorist list by Joe Biden Joe Biden drop thanks in that Nordstrom to pipeline they are seeing eight theories of bad policy and in the leaders in the Middle East certainly don't want anything to do it that I have to say. One other thing Jake Kampen has happened because I just went to Serbia Albania and Montenegro before I came to Israel and the heads of state in all of those countries sought me out to want to talk. They wanted to be able to meet and I have II can't help but think that they're looking at Joe Biden and Thane. There's no possible way the Biden administration is not able to continue numbers are low, Democrats are making a map of the house.

The Senate, the White House in their thinking, there's gotta be a future for conservatives in America things I'm really concerned about in all of this is we had this trajectory in the Middle East that for decades has been terrible. I mean if you have these you have the Oslo Accords and nothing really got implemented you had you had the white plantation meetings and all these attempts you had a course Camp David and little progress was made, then you had this really bold initiative changing the framework upon which we were going on continuing to move forward and that was to have the Abraham records where these governments. These countries would be signing agreements with Israel as a party for regional cooperation including the Gulf states, including Jordan and Egypt with RAP strays in place.

Saudi Arabia was very cooperative and you had this trajectory of a positive situation going on right and then you had this change of events and I keep going back to a wreck. I keep going back to you Afghanistan just kinda showed the world our problem and it seems like the administration just just what I've given the nod now to the Abraham Accords their identity not say to get in the regional cooperation business shows you what a fundamental misunderstanding what the Abraham Accords were trying to accomplish the political class in Washington. All told her that Donald Trump would be so dangerous for America and that he would start World War III and the opposite actually happened.

He not only did not start new wars, but he brought forward. He's treating and so I think that we have to be very clear about what the political class to Washington DC, typed in the media are always going to admit that they don't want to talk about a strong America first policy right.

They want to contend with the rest of the world and one global policy leprosy, recognizing stockings for Ms. really appreciate very much. I want to make a couple comments here. I've done a lot of work in the region. We like is it we established an office in Jerusalem years ago and a lot of that work was involving protecting religious sites Christian sites Jewish heritage sites from an onslaught of the then a very hostile Muslim world and then we had the situations where we were engaged on issues that the United Nations at the international criminal court. We dealt with the UN's religious liberty repertory was doing a report on Israel and we were able to show that of all the countries in the region.
