A few weeks after the RJC criticized the administration over the Holocaust statement, Brooks was invited to the White House and met briefly with the president. Also visiting the White House recently was Sara Bloomfield, the director of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. She met for breakfast with Trump spokesman Boris Epshteyn, who has been identified as the Trump aide who wrote the much-criticized Holocaust statement. (Neither Bloomfield nor Epshteyn would comment on the meeting.) The administration is also working to combat charges that it has tolerated or tacitly condoned anti-Semitic sentiment. Pence last week visited the Jewish cemetery outside St. Louis that was vandalized. And on Friday, during his RJC speech, the vice president delivered a forceful repudiation of anti-Semitism, saying that it had “no place” in America. Pence’s remarks came a few days after Trump, responding to the toppling of 170 graves at the cemetery, said that “anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community at community centers are horrible and are painful and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil.

Philippines Vice-President Leni Robredo visited on Friday night (Robredo, who under the Philippine election system was elected independently of Duterte, is a stanch opponent of the drug war); former and current public officials, including chairs of the Philippines Commission on Human Rights, stopped by on Saturday morning. Theyre trying to say shes not a political prisoner, but what else is this but political harassment? Etta Rosales, who chaired the Commission from 2010 until 2015, said to TIME outside of the detention facility on Saturday. There is a global regression of rights, and Duterte is part of that, and Senator de Lima is hopeful that her arrest will bring attention to it. The timing of her arrest, de Lima says, is no coincidence. Earlier this week, a retired Davao police officer named Arthur Lascañas testified that during his mayorship, Duterte personally paid members of the so-called Davao Death Squad, as the cabal of vigilante killers there was known, between $400 and $2,000 for each alleged drug user they killed.

LAS VEGASVice President Mike Pence on Friday forcefully condemned a string of anti-Semitic acts of vandalism across the country, telling a group of powerful Jewish Republicans that such acts had “no place” in the country. “Let me be very clear: We condemn these acts of vandalism and the people that perpetrated these acts in the strongest possible terms,” Pence told a Republican Jewish Coalition gathering here. “Hatred and anti-Semitism have no place in American society.” Pence’s remarks come at a time of growing unease among many Jewish Americans, who have witnessed numerous acts of anti-Semitism in recent months. The vice president addressed the gathering just days after he visited a Jewish cemetery outside of St. Louis that had been desecrated. While Pence has spoken out against vandalism, President Donald Trump has been far quieter on the matter – something that has drawn criticism from members of both parties.

Piper visited the village where the primary school is among 140 structures at risk of demolition. Khan al-Ahmar is one of the most vulnerable communities in the West Bank struggling to maintain a minimum standard of living in the face of intense pressure from the Israeli authorities to move, he said in a statement. Israeli officials have over the past week issued dozens of demolition orders threatening nearly every structure in a part of the village of Khan al-Ahmar, the UN said. Israel said the buildings were built without permits. The UN said such permits are all but impossible to obtain for Palestinians ... Israel has occupied the West Bank for 50 years in violation of international law. A number of traditionally nomadic Bedouin communities are based east of Jerusalem, where rights groups fear demolitions could eventually clear the way for more construction of illegal Israeli settlements.

Edwards worked with the team at Industrial Lights and Magic to recreate that galaxy far, far away and, as we found out when we visited their London office, they provided some very cool kit to help facilitate his unique directing style. So he's a very hands-on filmmaker. He likes to walk around his sets and physically pick up the camera himself and walk around and find interesting angles that might not have occurred to him when he was planning out the shoots in preproduction.
