I begin my comparing the situation at the US-Mexico border with that of the Gazans and Israel and note that US foreign policy has been responsible for both. I speak briefly of Gaza ceasefire and failure of ultra Zionist Jewish Home party which opposed it to force new elections.

I then turn to Sen, Rand Paul's hold on bringing the $38 billion US arms to Israel act to a Senate vote which the media has ignored and the lobbying by AIPAC and Christian Zionists to pressure Paul to release his hold. Unless he does there can be no vote on the act.

I go from that to Airbnb's decision ahead of Human Rights Watch criticism to delist rentals in the West Bank and efforts, legal and ministerial to get Airbnb to back down. If it doesn't this will represent the most important victory yet for the BDS movement.

I then quote from essay in Time by Vietnamese-American Viet Tranh Nyguen on racism, war and intervention being an indelible pattern in US history and conclude with a report on the threatened status of Julian Assange in the UK Ecuadoran Embassy after new president, Lenin Moreno, removes ambassador friendly to Assange. I end by suggesting that how people respond to the prosecution of Assange will be a moment of truth.
