0:00:00.149,0:00:08.670
berry lip it is news Tuesday Tuesday

0:00:02.939,0:00:11.219
June 18th 2019 and Barry you were an NSA

0:00:08.670,0:00:15.240
Arabist and translator for over 20 years

0:00:11.219,0:00:18.449
and what have you got for us today from

0:00:15.240,0:00:20.880
the Arabic news weather whatever TV

0:00:18.449,0:00:23.180
print that actually can shed some

0:00:20.880,0:00:28.529
insight on current events because they

0:00:23.180,0:00:32.730
definitely need some insight okay one

0:00:28.529,0:00:34.440
thing I want to talk about was a TV

0:00:32.730,0:00:36.809
program I heard the other night talk

0:00:34.440,0:00:41.450
show and Egyptian talk-show host talking

0:00:36.809,0:00:45.629
about Egypt becoming an energy hub for

0:00:41.450,0:00:48.200
Africa and Europe and the way this is

0:00:45.629,0:00:51.870
gonna happen they’re built gonna build

0:00:48.200,0:00:54.449
or they’re gonna be shipping first of

0:00:51.870,0:00:59.039
all they’re going to be shipping natural

0:00:54.449,0:01:01.949
gas from Egypt to Europe okay by tanker

0:00:59.039,0:01:03.719
I guess or whatever and the other part

0:01:01.949,0:01:09.119
of this is that they’re going to lay

0:01:03.719,0:01:12.210
underground cables from Egypt to Cyprus

0:01:09.119,0:01:15.210
and then Cyprus to Crete and then create

0:01:12.210,0:01:20.640
to Greece so that Egypt can actually

0:01:15.210,0:01:25.320
sell actual electricity to Europe now

0:01:20.640,0:01:28.229
the fly in that opened is that as we

0:01:25.320,0:01:32.579
reported in a previous you know

0:01:28.229,0:01:37.229
interview that Turkey has been drilling

0:01:32.579,0:01:39.799
for natural gas and oil off the west

0:01:37.229,0:01:42.930
coast of Cyprus with in Cypriot

0:01:39.799,0:01:44.909
territorial waters you know what’s

0:01:42.930,0:01:46.590
interesting about that is that the

0:01:44.909,0:01:48.329
Cypriots and the Greeks are demanding

0:01:46.590,0:01:50.430
the European Union do something about

0:01:48.329,0:01:52.890
that and I think this is a hell of an

0:01:50.430,0:01:56.990
acid test for the EU can they actually

0:01:52.890,0:02:00.049
represent their own interests at all

0:01:56.990,0:02:02.460
yeah that is the big question now

0:02:00.049,0:02:05.969
believe it notice the French that are

0:02:02.460,0:02:08.129
actually been your on taking the hardest

0:02:05.969,0:02:11.099
line in this for of course one reason is

0:02:08.129,0:02:14.330
that the French have the transformer

0:02:11.099,0:02:16.760
company has a right

0:02:14.330,0:02:17.720
issued by casaya / cyprus given the for

0:02:16.760,0:02:20.120
this thing you know the french oil

0:02:17.720,0:02:22.640
company rights to do the drilling in

0:02:20.120,0:02:25.970
Cypriot territorial waters so when the

0:02:22.640,0:02:30.380
Turks moved in now the French have

0:02:25.970,0:02:32.270
ordered the Turks to withdraw now heard

0:02:30.380,0:02:38.660
again gave a big speech the other day to

0:02:32.270,0:02:42.200
his supporters basically the belittling

0:02:38.660,0:02:46.040
Cyprus and threatening to use military

0:02:42.200,0:02:48.340
force to guarantee Turkish court of

0:02:46.040,0:02:51.500
court rights and he also implied that

0:02:48.340,0:02:55.130
get this the entire eastern

0:02:51.500,0:02:58.430
Mediterranean is Turkish territorial

0:02:55.130,0:03:01.810
waters now that would be a fairly

0:02:58.430,0:03:06.380
Ottoman position I would think yes yep

0:03:01.810,0:03:08.510
now I heard today that the United States

0:03:06.380,0:03:13.400
that I guess in some of the European

0:03:08.510,0:03:15.290
countries have condemned Turkey but I

0:03:13.400,0:03:19.459
think it’s gonna take a heck of a lot

0:03:15.290,0:03:22.190
more than that yeah this guy is it with

0:03:19.459,0:03:26.090
his occupation of Northwest Syria and

0:03:22.190,0:03:28.130
even parts of Iraq it looks you rolled

0:03:26.090,0:03:30.769
military assets back into Syria just

0:03:28.130,0:03:32.810
yesterday isn’t that right you what I

0:03:30.769,0:03:35.269
believe that Turkey ruled a lot of

0:03:32.810,0:03:39.010
military assets a lot of hardware into

0:03:35.269,0:03:43.640
Syria just yesterday I didn’t do that

0:03:39.010,0:03:45.290
for months but he’s there Tuesday I mean

0:03:43.640,0:03:47.420
he said you said that before he’s there

0:03:45.290,0:03:50.480
to say and he’s actually occupy actually

0:03:47.420,0:03:52.280
uh next I took the name of the problem

0:03:50.480,0:03:55.010
one of the provinces in Northwest Syria

0:03:52.280,0:03:56.690
and he’s of course occupied two others

0:03:55.010,0:03:58.850
and in the meantime he’s been

0:03:56.690,0:04:00.799
exterminating Kurds and Christians and

0:03:58.850,0:04:05.480
Aniyah cities you know who’ve been there

0:04:00.799,0:04:11.000
for thousands of years but this is just

0:04:05.480,0:04:14.360
like Adolf Hitler in 1938 and if the or

0:04:11.000,0:04:17.780
like the Islamic state in 2016 yeah and

0:04:14.360,0:04:22.430
if the West doesn’t get tough it’s gonna

0:04:17.780,0:04:25.520
be having a lot harder later so so

0:04:22.430,0:04:26.540
that’s the turkey news mister energy

0:04:25.520,0:04:29.900
news

0:04:26.540,0:04:35.680
what else have you got for us the other

0:04:29.900,0:04:41.150
one I wanted to talk a little bit about

0:04:35.680,0:04:43.550
another did that I heard on armor a

0:04:41.150,0:04:48.230
Deeb’s talk show host the other night

0:04:43.550,0:04:51.200
and this is an Egyptian talk show host

0:04:48.230,0:04:55.520
he was quoting a program that he heard

0:04:51.200,0:04:59.300
from al-jazeera whereby al-jazeera was

0:04:55.520,0:05:03.920
interviewing an Egyptian professor who

0:04:59.300,0:05:07.370
said that the for so called down right

0:05:03.920,0:05:11.330
league at KFC’s for the first Keihin of

0:05:07.370,0:05:15.490
central mohammed that they weren’t so

0:05:11.330,0:05:18.680
rightly guided after all they were spies

0:05:15.490,0:05:21.230
working for the Quraish and who had

0:05:18.680,0:05:26.330
embedded these four individuals into

0:05:21.230,0:05:33.050
Muhammad’s company and of course that

0:05:26.330,0:05:35.060
has caused a huge disturbance in the

0:05:33.050,0:05:38.750
Arabic world and this you know filled

0:05:35.060,0:05:42.770
the tissue of the Twitterverse and talk

0:05:38.750,0:05:46.520
shows and newscast even and whose claim

0:05:42.770,0:05:48.230
is this again this aljazeera bleed or

0:05:46.520,0:05:50.930
not had interviewed this egyptian

0:05:48.230,0:05:54.560
professor we had made this claim that

0:05:50.930,0:05:56.360
the for Russia Deen which is the Arabic

0:05:54.560,0:05:59.650
for the rightly guided ones

0:05:56.360,0:06:03.140
that they were actually caressed buys

0:05:59.650,0:06:07.430
that the Quraish had embedded into well

0:06:03.140,0:06:09.620
Muhammad’s group well you know the less

0:06:07.430,0:06:16.910
certainty with the Islamic world the

0:06:09.620,0:06:19.790
better just like this hopefully we’ll

0:06:16.910,0:06:23.330
get more people to begin to think and to

0:06:19.790,0:06:26.990
question the traditions and that could

0:06:23.330,0:06:29.230
lead to you know with that to our

0:06:26.990,0:06:31.260
information we hope down the road

0:06:29.230,0:06:33.420
well if

0:06:31.260,0:06:35.430
I’m highly doubtful the Reformation is

0:06:33.420,0:06:37.080
possible as well but this sounds like it

0:06:35.430,0:06:38.430
could be the seeds of it berry whipped

0:06:37.080,0:06:41.390
thank you very much for this news

0:06:38.430,0:06:44.270
Tuesday and we’ll be back shortly with a

0:06:41.390,0:06:47.720
oddities and peculiarities of the

0:06:44.270,0:06:47.720
origins of this line
