Why Focusing on Abusers Instead of Survivors Misses the Point

5/25/2024
Survivors, not statistics: We start with the persistent and pernicious violence against women, and the lack of action and accountability to protect them. This week two more women accused rapper Sean "Diddy" Combs of sexual assault. This comes after CNN obtained sickening video of Combs attacking his girlfriend Cassie Ventura in 2016. Christiane speaks with a transatlantic panel of women: attorney Gloria Allred, along with Lejla Dauti and April Hernandez Castillo, who are both survivors and advocates. Then, how journalists “operate in a disinformation ecosystem” is a “defining issue,” as the world heads into a wave of critical elections, says Columbia Journalism School Dean Jelani Cobb. Meantime, Former US State Department Senior Advisor and historian Vali Nasr discusses the succession crisis in Iran after the sudden death of its president. “Moving towards the middle gives more room for the US to engage Iran,” he says. From the Amanpour Archive this week: When ex-Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic became the first sitting head of state to be tried by an international criminal tribunal. And, in our Letter from London, the best-selling Israeli author and historian Yuval Noah Harari asks whether the Middle East can ever escape the "Israeli-Palestinian trap."

Should Ukraine Target Russia with US Weapons?

5/24/2024
As Ukraine pleads for weapons, Russia has again struck Kharkiv with missiles, killing at least seven civilians. Kharkiv and the surrounding region is now the centre of this war. President Volodymyr Zelensky blames Western hesitation for the country's weakness, restricting where and how Kyiv can use NATO weapons. According to the New York Times, a debate is raging in the White House over allowing Ukraine to fire US weapons into Russia and after a “sobering” trip, US Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, plans to change US policy. Earlier this month the United Kingdom gave Kyiv permission to target Russia with its weapons. Andrea Kendall-Taylor, senior fellow and director at the Center for a New American Security, joins Bianna Golodryga to discuss the potential ramifications of these decisions.

Israeli Army Finds Bodies of Three Hostages in Tunnels in Gaza

5/17/2024
Today, IDF spokesperson Daniel Hagari announced that the Israeli army found the bodies of three hostages in tunnels in Gaza. It is thought over a hundred hostages are still held by Hamas. Correspondent Nic Robertson joins the show to tell us more. While the world’s attention is focused on the war in Gaza, there’s been a spike in violence in the occupied West Bank. Since October 7, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs has recorded at least 800 Israeli settler attacks against Palestinians in the West Bank that resulted in casualties or property damage. Now, a years-long investigation by the New York Times finds that violent factions within the Israeli settler movement have come to pose a threat to Palestinians in the Occupied Territories, and to Israel’s democracy. Journalist Ronen Bergman helped to lead the investigation, spending years investigating extremist violence. He joins the show from Tel Aviv.

Zelensky On The Front Lines

5/16/2024
U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken is wrapping up his trip to Ukraine. While there, America’s top diplomatic pledged two billion dollars of aid to help build up the country’s defense industry. And throughout his trip, he has been trying to reassure Kyiv of Washington’s support. Words that hide a bitter truth, the 7 months of U.S. delay in sending military aid has left Ukraine’s troops over-stretched and under-armed. And it couldn’t come at a worse time, with Russia pushing against multiple fronts including Ukraine’s second largest city, Kharkiv. President Zelensky has been on those front lines assessing the situation along with his Defense Minister Rustem Umerov, who joined the program from his car.
