12:33 pm
a who'd back as the israeli prime minister in one thousand nine hundred. s. president and brock's logic is what do i need and what i want to get to a final status agreement with the palestinians by the time you president clinton leaves office that's what he tells them in august ninety nine when he visits but ox offer was for israel to withdraw from much of the west bank while keeping sovereignty over key parts of jerusalem in two thousand he convinced clinton of the need to convene a meeting without a fact in the united states to resolve the final issues one and he couldn't say no to the president he came with a profound suspicion and resentment suspicion that the americans and the israelis were going to present him with a fait accompli that he couldn't accept and resentment a good bra cool he believed had chased. these really serious negotiation for the preceding seven months ignoring him and israel's commitments and who was prepared to give to assad and ninety nine point nine percent of the golan heights minus four
12:34 pm
hundred yards off the northeastern portion of the lake and yet mr barak's offer to our friend camp david was ninety percent but not confused to meet alone without a fact that camp david now at camp david brock took this position i don't want to meet on the on our fight i don't want to build that kind of personal connection because again once i'm with arafat's alone he will write down everything and barack would say he always says it's not our photos as it's notepad and he writes on everything that people say to keep it in his pocket and one day will come out and say barack has agreed to divide jerusalem and so i can't accept that. they felt they did not have david. well and you know his own aka how do you want arafat to go to camp david and end the conflict without getting a written offer from barack i'm certain that if he had been presented with a written offer he would have asked to have had it an issue and put it in his pocket and i'm certain of that that. before agreeing to attend the
12:35 pm
county even some of the artifacts sort of assurances that he would not be made the scapegoat if the talks fail. on a fact rejected by next proposals at camp david he concluded the palestinian state in visaged would not be viable made up of count on and completely surrounded by territory to be the next to israel. should be one of the and then what the clinton he breaks his promise and blames not a fight for the failure of calm day with a man so out of five is made out to be a liar that's plain shameful. much of the western media criticized artifact at the time for rejecting the proposals. but today former u.s. administration officials acknowledged that artifact had little choice. what was presented at camp david i think if you ask any american negotiator today any of us
12:36 pm
do we think the palestinians could have accepted the ideas that president should could have accepted the ideas that president clinton put on the table or already briefed our fight on in july two thousand i think they would all say they would have to say in hindsight now i couldn't accept they could accept them because there was no way you could defend a nine to one swap there's no way you could accept the sovereignty of her own there's no way you could accept. this patchwork of sovereignty over jerusalem cetera et cetera in fact the proof of the matter is. the palace in need us for today are lauded as the most moderate. and most of us about mao's and yes a bit rebel they all rejected what was on the table and not on the table at camp david in terms that were even more harsh than our fight him self they were adamant against that so that tells you something about whether these were the kind of proposals that that
12:37 pm
a palace in could accept should he have taken the deal and. public. a last ditch attempt by clinton at the end of his presidency failed to produce an agreement and out a vote was playing i blame it partly on on. clinton denis they told the incoming. administration. bush and cheney literally on inauguration day that it was totally responsible for the failure of the peace process and that he was a liar and you couldn't count on you couldn't deal with him. after the meeting at camp david on a plan to return to gaza and received a hero's welcome for refusing to accept what the palestinians viewed as unacceptable. he was by now however a pariah in washington unwelcome and on trust. just weeks later the second intifada erupted triggered by al shot owns visit to the temple mount or noble sanctuary in jerusalem. the palestinians had lost hope with
12:38 pm
a diplomatic approach. amid the death and violence of the new intifada and hamas increased its role and its power base in the occupied territories. in israel but are close the elections to the leader of the israeli opposition out of france called archrival carry out shut on shut on was in no mood for concession and following the september eleventh attacks on the united states he was quick to spot an opportunity to get the americans more on his side. edge about and then set. september eleventh allowed children to gain sympathy for israel's internal to cuti situation in effect what he was saying was that what you in america faced on september eleventh i faced on a daily basis and children was able to convince the world that yes i was the sense of terrorism. the israeli military actions that kill children women and
12:39 pm
elderly caused palestinian we actions to be emotional instead of political and therefore revenge became the source of justice for the weak israelis knew this i believe their crushing of the palestinians political backbone is one of the great achievements of the israeli army during the intifada so in other words there was chaos. in the spring of two thousand and two at a.o.l. chat on decided to hold yasser arafat personally responsible for every act of violence perpetrated against israel. israeli forces quickly surrounded artifacts headquarters in ramallah and set out to systematically destroyed all the instruments of palestinian state for. the siege and with few remaining allies artifact turned down an offer from chad on to that. he feared he would not be allowed to return instead on a fat and else that he would fight to the very end. under pressure on
12:40 pm
a father devolved some of his powers to the newly appointed prime minister mahmoud abbas also known as i will masm but in arafat's eyes our bass proved ineffective and i shall continue under obama. i was with arafat when prime minister abbas was in washington out of had received a phone call telling him it was no good sheria the white house had not agreed to him regaining his freedom at that point arafat's find out if the americans refused to grant abbas the freedom of yasser arafat will the democratically elected president of the palestinian people does he think they will give him the rights of the palestinian people in jerusalem and borders and the issue of refugees they will log out of that subsequently quickly move to engineer the fall of all muslims cabinet and he did it. surrounded in his ramallah headquarters out of fat held out on. he looked older of two thousand and four when he was struck down by a mysterious illness. israel said it would allow him to seek treatment abroad and
12:41 pm
return. on a father died in a paris hospital calls on. the palestinians claimed he was poisoned. the israelis protested their innocence. didn't.
12:42 pm
claim just that if you have turned. away i'm going to say. about time for the president on a fact. he was on my corner in the process of the worst. it was not only a concept i was aleppo nation of the heart of it. off all the all prospered throughout the log. on top side not our ups and our lures and none of that stuff and thinking is that great go or are those off fighting against oppression. will regret. and that we're careful our conduct says. and add up if i don't want to be like.
12:43 pm
i. want to same for thing the way the world stood by and watched while out of fact was treated that way in the last years of his life it's absolutely shameful . following out of pat's death mahmoud abbas was elected president of the palestinian authority but he lacked the power base and hold over palestinian politics that on a fact had to stop which. soon face the challenge to his all for the from hamas the islamic movement which now commanded the loyalty of a large proportion of palestinians. in january two thousand and six hamas defeated the fact that movement obama in parliamentary elections. a power struggle ensued between the palestinian authority led by a bass and thomas. gun battles broke out between fatah and hamas come.
12:44 pm
in the summer of two thousand and seven and as fighters captured the fatah headquarters in gaza. securing control of the area gaza became the confirmed stronghold of homs but to have been supplanted. without a fight of lost control of gaza the way. it's hard to believe that he would have for one simple reason that was an icon he lost a lot of support among palestinians i felt it even as time went by but he was an icon because he put the palestinian issue on the national the international map he established for the international community. a sense that somehow what he had in a fight as policy national aspirations had to be achieved so he put the palestinian movement on the world stage and he also unified the palestinians in
12:45 pm
a way that no other leader had i think what's happened since he has died. should tell us something about how central he was to the palestinian map and you know it's ironic that. even some of those who were most critical of our fight among palestinians during his final days. are the most eager to to to to rally behind his name than his picture in his flag today. today the palestine liberation organization is no longer the force it once was. the emergence of new groups such as hamas has eroded support for the traditional people. rather than being given unifying force the p.l.o. is now more protests against an intercom system industry. the revolution
12:46 pm
started over forty years ago may have faded but the dreams of the palestinians for statehood their form as strong as ever. where were you when this idea. that when they're on line it's undoubtedly chief. of again inequality in our society today or if you join a sunset criminal justice system is dysfunctional right now this is a dialogue what does it feel like to go back for the first time everyone has a voice about refugees to be the speakers for change joining the conversation on our one of the really special things that working for al-jazeera is that even as a camera woman i get to have so much empathy and contribution to a story i feel we cover this region better than anyone else would be what it is you know it's very challenging there but it is but the good because you have a lot of people that are divided on political issues we are we the people we live

12:50 pm
bill passed by the knesset on thursday after hours of heated debate the measure became law by a vote of sixty two to fifty five with two abstentions for years the language of the bill divided political opinion between the ruling parties and the opposition arab members of the knesset say the law legalizes discrimination. laws this is a bill from a government that has an enemy to palestinians it's the most dangerous measure it's a law from a racist government against palestinian rights and to create an apartheid regime it turns israel into a fascist state. i have the most controversial clause in the bill a provision calling for jewish only communities was replaced at the last minute the original legislation would have allowed the state to establish separate communities on the basis of religion and nationality the replacement provision says the state sees developing jewish settlements as a national interest and will take steps to encourage advance and implement this

interest illegal settlements for jews are already being built in breach of international law and u.n. demands another contriver sees the status of the arabic language a new law says hebrew will be israel's only official language demoting arabic to seconds. the deputy attorney general says the law also allows the construction of synagogues and ritual baths but not mosques they israeli president says the legislation could harm jewish people and israel enemies could use it as a weapon protest as against the new law march through tel aviv on saturday. oh my god oh i love him very slowly and thousands of israelis came today protest to. test against the nation state law which is a racist and fascist law that is trying to turn israel from a democracy into something else therefore we are here to block this drift towards dictatorship and fascism they are your credit i came today to say that the arab citizens of israel are not inferior to the nation state law will discriminate
12:52 pm
against them as the israeli government has been doing for many years arabic is an official language and they deserve equal rights. the government led by prime minister benjamin netanyahu insists that it's important to establish that israel is the historical homeland of the jewish people who have the sole right to national self-determination palestinian see the law as legitimizing apartheid from the silver al-jazeera well guys if it is an assistant professor of u.s. foreign policy and the middle east at the american university and he called it a sad day for democracy in israel. the entire world understands that israel is the nation state of the jewish people but there is also another people who live there and the arabs and. that creation of independence made it crystal clear that equality was a fundamental principle in which israel will be established and i think it will be
12:53 pm
increasingly difficult for israel to claim that it is a the only democracy in the middle east when it discriminates against its minority i mean this is this this piece of legislation says absolutely nothing doesn't even mention the word democracy and certainly it's an illiberal piece of legislation it's discriminatory it's an equality it's anti-humanist it's just it's a terrible bill it's a terrible piece of legislation and and so it can clearly be used by israel's enemies and i think that it is in israel's best interest to repeal it as soon as possible there's even more confusion about what donald trump believes doesn't believe about russian interference in the twenty sixteen us presidential election the latest twist has seen him at cross purposes with his aides and at one point even with him self. from washington. u.s.
12:54 pm
president donald trump ended wednesday the way he started it leaving as country and the world very confused about whether he thinks russia interfered in the twenty sixteen presidential election trump told us television he did blame russian president vladimir putin well i would because he's in charge of the country just like i consider myself to be responsible for things that happen in this country so certainly as the leader of a country you would have to hold him responsible but also on wednesday trump told other reporters this is russia don't targeting us. that sent the white house press secretary into damage control mode he was saying no he's not taking questions for trump's aides this was day three of cleaning up after the president during his joint press conference with putin on monday trump said he had raised the interference question during their meeting he just said it's not russian then after republican and democratic outrage over trump statement the president spent tuesday
