10:02 pm
a just comprehensive and lasting peace and we are still committed to this peace as a strategic choice. and. this is the summary of the project that was presented to us this is the state that they will give us its like a swiss cheese really who among you will accept a similar state and similar conditions this deal ladies and gentlemen includes instructions and the entrenchment of occupation and annexation by military force and the strengthening of the apartheid regime. israel's ambassador to the un danny danon has accused the palestinian president of lacking sincerity in finding peace. if president abbas was serious about the goshi ations it wouldn't be healed today it would be enjoy was a limb or in washington on feeding down with the negotiating power to know whether and abbas is not serious about negotiations or about peace. well al jazeera
10:03 pm
senior political analyst is with me in the studio thank you for joining us now and so i was at the u.n. again did he get any of the support that he was looking for it doesn't seem like at the end and we separately was that clear from yesterday when most of the important members of the u.n. security council did not sign on the draft resolution that the palestinians were trying to pass so what we saw today was a speech that was all over the place but notably defensive in nature while the policy and president's criticized that from planned rejected it but he was defensive throughout the speech basically explaining why he's not corrupt why the his authority is not supporting terror and so on and so forth while presumably his entire presence in new york was supposed to be to at a particular late a palestinian vision a palestinian strategy that the u.n. security council members would prescribe to would support instead of supporting the thrum plan but all what he spent on this vision was about 2 lines one minute
10:04 pm
talking about quartet an international conference why international conference how international conference how would that lead to bilateral negotiations none of that so he was mostly on the defensive on the other hand what we saw is an israeli ambassador that never fails to disappoint i mean cliches and lies and deception and spin nonstop basically saying that a bus must go which is sort of an amazing thing to hear at the united nations and saying that out of grew lot of eyes terrorism and does not support peace which is you know basically it renders itself why the policy in president bothers to talk about peace with israel is in this sense they are saying about failed to articulate his vision what how how would the palestinians brought into the consultation process for this plan i think the main problem. for the palestinians in this whole
10:05 pm
trump land is that they were not consulted because from the beginning as president abbas had been saying look we talked about international law but president trump turned around and recognized jerusalem as the capital of israel basically torpedoing international law and u.n. security council resolution and since then basically they were no longer in speaking terms and the americans then went on on their own for the last 23 years and articulated a plan that basically is a. copy and paste from israel's own plans and that is the palestinians are saying look we've seen this ideas before they've been presented to us by previous not the neo delegates and we of course we rejected it then and we were rejected now senator off resolution where do they go from here it's a good question i think for the palestinians they are in trouble present that bus coming to the united nations really made no sense he should have been in gaza he
10:06 pm
should have been searching for palestinian unity around a particular program because in the end of the day as you know any student with their national relations no diplomacy is a reflection of a balance on the ground the balance in international community is gone it's in favor of the united states but the balance on the ground if a bus is not able to articulate a position of resistance peaceful or not peaceful doesn't matter repeat for assistance but united along with hamas fatah and all the palestinian civil society if you can't articulate that then he is lost on the other hand this is especially important. because israel if it's not to morrow certainly in a month or 2 is has been given the green light by different administration to annex some one 3rd of the future palestinian state of the west bank and that is dramatic and that basically will put an end to the idea of a 2 state solution and i think by then the palestinians were going to have to
10:07 pm
decide whether they're going to continue to embrace a 2 state solution or perhaps embrace a one state for 2 people and thank you for putting that into context for us thank you turkey's president is promising swift revenge against syrian government forces and after they killed 5 turkish soldiers on monday this is the syrian army continues to make key territorial gains president bashar al assad's forces are now firmly in control of almost the entire country except those opposition controlled areas marked in green and kurdish held in the north locked in yellow the there are reports that for the 1st time in syria's 8 year civil war government forces have seized control of the entire n 5 highway by driving opposition fighters out of that area west of aleppo and that's important because it's the main trade route running from the north all the way to the southern border with jordan it connects the commercial hub of aleppo with major cities like damascus homs and hama and will make it easier for assad

10:27 pm
more than 2 thirds of those registered to vote new hampshire are undeclared to independent voters may be a small state but it plays an important role in selecting the party's nominee and as custom salumi reports it can be the outcome hard to predict. new hampshire resident jonathan blitz says he leans republican sue inly will board lean democrat but like many voters in the state they don't belong to a political party this is serious stuff and we need to change the direction of the country they were among hundreds of voters who lined up to see democrat pete would a judge in a school auditorium on balancing between p. and burning right now although i do like even closer to a little bit. with no clear front runner for the democratic presidential nomination these independent voters are in high demand particularly by middle of the road candidates like blue jets when you're coming up here to run for president you're
10:28 pm
