inside story but for now. can a benjamin netanyahu push ahead with this threat to annex the jordan valley these really prime ministers pledge to the world if reelected so is it an election ploy to woo voters and what will the outcome be this is inside story. hello i'm imran khan welcome to the program it's being called an act of aggression
8:22 pm
that could lead to war but that hasn't deterred israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu from promising to annex large parts of the occupied west bank if he wins next week's snap election netanyahu is fighting for his political career after an inconclusive vote in april and he says israel will apply israeli serenity to the jordan valley and the northern dead sea immediately if he secure was a 5th term the jordan valley and the northern dead sea make up 30 percent of the occupied west bank approximately 65000 palestinians and 11000 israelis living in illegal settlements reside in that area the main palestinian city is jericho and that has about $28.00 villages and some bedouin communities under netanyahu plans jericho would largely be cut off from the rest of the west bank and excise would also in circle any future palestinian state there's
8:23 pm
a lot to get into with our guest but 1st i need a brain has more from the jordan valley. we're standing and ross an older village in the jordan valley this really prime minister benjamin netanyahu says he wants to annex this area he doesn't want to annex that area over there jericho and a lot older because he says he wants to complete and carry out his plan without annex in any single palestinian but there are palestinians here bedouin communities we've spoken to some of them and they believe that what netanyahu is saying is part of his elections campaign. every time they have is really elections they do it at the expense of the palestinian people netanyahu says i want to annex a jordan valley so israelis will vote for him not more government is it about the how many times will leave it to the palestinians have been displaced several times already there's no place else for us to go the jordan valley makes up one 3rd of the occupied west bank it's already under israeli military occupation and
8:24 pm
palestinians see it as an integral part of their future palestinian state now this is under threat this is why many palestinian officials have been voicing concerns against netanyahu remark they are saying that netanyahu has this regarding international law only for him to win more votes they're calling it an act of ethnic cleansing is stealing palestinian land and killing any opportunity for 2 state solution. let's bring in our panel joining us from west to roost mitchell brock c.e.o. of kiva on global research and a former adviser to israeli president shimon peres and from ramallah mystified who is he secretary general of the palestinian national initiative and former palestinian information minister and from washington d.c. on skype abani coeditor of generally an online magazine focusing on middle east politics and culture welcome you all to the program let me start with mitchell
8:25 pm
brock in west roussillon 1st the annexation is this electioneering chutzpah or i dead lee serious plan well that's a great word hutzpah i mean i really can't believe that you've taken his declaration so seriously that you're dedicating a whole show to it his campaign strategy so far has been to scare everyone scare the israeli public scare the palestinians scare the world and get people to vote and whatever it is he finds something and if it's not the thunder then the lightning will get you and if it's not the lightning it's the hail storms and it's the earthquakes and it's some catastrophe that's going to take place and that's what he's doing you cannot take anything that he says seriously during this election period especially the last week i was fortunate that we have to take him seriously let's be honest is the there's the issue of the golan heights there's the move of the embassy to from tel aviv to jerusalem there is a number of things that happened it's not without the bounds of imagination that he
8:26 pm
might well be serious about this i think we do have to take him seriously let's bring in midst of a booty in ramallah do you take the israeli leader seriously when he says he my onyx the west bank or the jordan valley i do not agree with what i didn't agree with what was the you think it's very serious it's a bit dangerous bottle for purposes which is led by an opinion but there's actually. reflecting the actual behavior and policy of those aniston movement in israel. let's talk about realities and facts unprecedented level of expansion of israeli illegal settlements in the occupied territories an agreement between netanyahu and his government and trump steam which seems to be working for netanyahu more than working for trump to implement his ideas the coalition of jerusalem as a couple of israel as a condition of the annexation of the golan heights. an attack on
8:27 pm
a new rule and cut of lot of funding from palestinian authority and united nations relief and works agency an actual plan to liquidate the palestinian refugee rights and an actual change in the american policy which stopped supporting the 2 state solution and now is talking about self governing authority under a system of apartheid on the ground what we see is a full fledged system of apartheid and frankly speaking i do not see much difference between gantz and you know they all are against stablish want of a palestinian state they are all for continuation of occupation and they are both. participating in consolidating a system of apartheid so no i take this very seriously. shockey it also is speaking about an exception not only of jordan valley but of the whole area of sea and
8:28 pm
i believe this is a trend that is going on the fact to really to consolidate apartheid and kill the option of 2 state solution which we are hearing that the palestinians are we not just from a suburb which he but the palestinians are taking this very seriously but there's another side to this is well. now that netanyahu has actually made this announcement he's playing to his right wing supporters those people will come out and vote for him after the election if he wins they going to hold him so this announcement they're going to want to see it done and if you can't give it to them there may well be another political crisis in israel surely. in the because. the only way that it's and now has a real path to government and i think he's in real danger now and he was even on the radio today saying according to his internal polls he's going to lose which is another scare tactic another thing that he's telling people. what's probably going to happen is they're going to be some kind of unity government after the election
8:29 pm
which includes the likud or pieces of the likud without an attorney out and the blue and white party of benny gantz and the lieberman party this will be one of the 1st things that's taken off the table because as mr barghouti said you know the facts on the ground are such that it's not going to really change anything meaning there are there are communities and settlements there it's regular life there nothing's going to really change so why do you need this change in legal status i think the only thing that we have to look for is what does the trump peace plan to say i mean is this in the trump peace plan and the other thing that as i mentioned and maybe mr barghouti or the other guest can mention that is as you know there hasn't really been a partner on the palestinian side during that time and it's and now has been in office now isn't the greatest you know pursuer of peace and looking to settle the palestinian issue at the same time you know we are having a double election in one year it would be nice if the palestinian people could vote to as president abbas is entering his i don't know 12th year of his 4 year term so
8:30 pm
there isn't a partner on the other side so i think a lot of israelis are hopeful that there will be some kind of change here in israel because he's been already a decade now in office and then on the palestinian side of things could be shaken up to there may be a chance to come to some kind of agreement especially with the trumpet ministration trump likes to shake things up he's got a plan he's working on for 2 years and you know i think his patience is also running out with israel and specifically with the turnout and he's going to want to do something to show especially now before the election he's got to show some pride progress in the middle. least in israel what the palace and he's given israel a lot of concessions for free and as we know there's no such thing as a free lunch someone's going to have to pay for it and we're going to have to pay for it after the election and that could be to the benefit of the palestinians let's bring in more in rabbani have from washington d.c. the other to guess that the palestinians clearly taking this latest announcement
8:31 pm
very seriously mitchell barak saying well actually this is just electioneering what are your thoughts do you think that this is the death of the 2 state solution and it's now time to really take a look at alternatives. well it is a deluxe and get it in the sense that netanyahu is saying. this annexation it won't happen unless you both for me and i for the next government if you don't nothing changed but i fully agree with dr but hold to that it also reflects a much deeper it's a sense the logical culmination of half a century israeli occupation and expanding colonization of the west spec and i think the key issue here is that israeli leaders see the period between the conclusion that is really elections next week and the american presidential elections next year as a golden opportunity that may not be repeated to unilaterally seek to resolve core issues of the israeli palestinian conflict in close coordination with
8:32 pm
washington in terms of the final part of your question i mean israel has always wanted the 2 state settlement to be off the table and i bite my responsibility that this makes it that much more difficult doesn't take anything off because israel out of the table the key issue here i think is when it comes to these actions of the occupied territories israel has for all intents and purposes and acting with impunity for the past half century and the key issue now is will the international community continue to give israel at most a slap on the rez look the other way or will it confront israel with serious meaningful consequences for its conduct most of about who would say in ramallah i mean what are the palestinians options right now what can you dave. well let me 1st
8:33 pm
say that tomorrow will be the 26th anniversary of illusion i don't call it an agreement i call it an illusion it was a trap. palestinians in. israel used the time very well to consolidate settlement expansion of the patient and the system for apartheid i do not see a difference i don't see any perspective for the peace process as long as the balance of power between us and israel is source skewed in the interest of this israeli trend which is the right to enter in i don't see a peace camp in israel and there is no peace camp and which can in gauge for the process and let me let me put it clearly what is the difference between gantz an attorney al gore and lieberman on the issue of yours and him none what is the difference between attorney organs and the government on the issue of removing settlements mun what is the difference between the 3 of them and.
