this is the way the conflict is winging our president and i can't the relationship we cannot be human being. by deception israeli arab men in prison after he persuades a woman to have sex with him by saying he's jewish. and a court delays a ruling on a group use of racist hate crimes including murder and extremist plots while psychiatric tests are carried out. live from our studios here in central moscow this is r t with the twenty four hours a day good to have you with us the un's highest court has ruled you know natural declaration of independence from serbia over two years ago did not violate international law the court said there was no war tical which prevents declarations
4:01 pm
of sovereignty the decision which is a rejection of a claim by serbia is non-binding because it is that albanian majority declared independence from belgrade in february two thousand and eight after the un brokered negotiations failed us and most european nations recognize the move but serbia backed by russia and china called an abomination of its territorial integrity as it were previously been administered by the un following the nato bombing campaign against serbia in one thousand nine hundred nine the journalist and historian the boy says the hague decision is biased. it's pretty much a death sentence for international law this is a textbook case of. clear violation of both the un resolution twelve forty four and all the accepted norms of international law. honestly was expecting a more nuanced decision along the lines of it was illegal but it doesn't matter i quite honestly didn't expect the world court to take such directly. pro-american
4:02 pm
position to be perfectly honest kosovo is a much independent does munchie equal or vichy france was in world war two it's a puppet state it suffers from and democrat abuses of power in its government structure can be best described as a organized crime it is not a state in any way shape or form just because the u.s. state department says it is a doesn't mean it is a case of course it was just a naked land grab and if it's allowed to stand in serbia itself may actually soon fall apart and disappear serbia as a country cannot afford to simply let this slide for the past twenty years there have been wars and conflicts in the balkans stemming from the collapse of yugoslavia and each time there was any sort of dispute the serbs turned out to be on the losing end and the principles that the so-called international community adopted along the way varied according to the needs of the moment there's no principle here really that can consistently apply over the past twenty years except
4:03 pm
the serbs always lose and that's clearly not a principle you can build a policy on in israel an arab man has been sentenced to eighteen months for rape by deception so i sure tricked a woman into having sex with him by claiming to be jewish he plans to appeal the decision and as a reports even couples who choose to have interfaith relationships face hostility. this jewish jerusalem suburb is surrounded by arab neighborhoods and far from cultivating a culture of tolerance vigilante style jewish patrol groups calling themselves fire for judaism stand watch outside the local shopping mall their mission to prevent arab men mixing with local jewish girls the municipality has created a twenty four hour hotline where parents and friends can phone to rat on jewish girls breaking this to boot a specially trained team of counselors and psychologists is on standby to rescue them as a leash more. it's important to save traditions culture history and identity because
4:04 pm
without this who are we from my experience we can see that the chances for a healthy relationship between you really do and an arab man very very low it's because of the great differences between these two cultures shut up at any of the most recent case involves an arab man who posed as a jewish bachelor a jewish woman agreed to have sex with him but after she found out he was an arab and not a jew she filed a police complaint the courts took the case so seriously that he's now being convicted of rape by deception and same tools to eighteen months and present the judge they've had an obligation to protect the public funds of the state of criminals who could know an innocent victims but reactions to the verdict differ i think if the women want to do it it's story blog a lot different it's our belief or more of a because something like this usually do is girls don't know where their guys. unless it's a choice you know. there should be a choice you didn't leave
4:05 pm
a choice but in prison is too much and this is the way that this conflict is ruining our present arrives that we cannot have relationships that we cannot be just human being arabs make up a foot of israel's population but relationships between arabs and jews are rare former palestinian minister. says fights break out almost weekly and night clubs and other puppy. paces over the issue it's not religion he says it's racism there are jewish gangs which are. threatened. to break. in the two years ronnie white here and kitty been tata have been together they've never been physically threatened he's muslim she's jewish but they're not thinking about leaving israel because they say it's simply
4:06 pm
too difficult on other levels and when my family found out they were very adamant about cutting me on every level. for acting as a traitor to everybody and for being an inch and making that choice right now israeli parliamentarians are considering it will be quiet perspective israeli citizens to israel as a jewish democratic state i would be furious most refused to swear allegiance to a state they believe explicitly excludes and marginalizes them. who is head of the center for victims of crime at the academic college and also political journalist and a list gideon levy and here's what they had. i'm not so sure about it personally i think that this case has been blown out of potion entirely because the court emphasized this time sure prison says to be single when he was married
4:07 pm
not sure then the courts decided that the claim to be two and the real question is whether it should be phrased now. we are adults people have grown up people and we know that in any kind of relationship between men and women. big lies and small lies white lies and blake lies he who did lie here about his age he could tell her he didn't love her he could tell her that he has a car and he doesn't have a car. should the really she was the key most of them will pretend to be a jew and this is the subtext of the whole thing don't touch all women that's the subtext yf the judges cemented the diff they didn't mean it but that's their meaning. well still to come in the program the. police

4:10 pm
a socialist russia up the route and truly get rid of all immigrants but who was really responsible they're arresting essentially people who are foot soldiers they're young and they don't really don't have the money or the power to have a network like this so who's funding that. and who's organizing it and they say until the the masterminds behind this organization are brought to light and brought to justice russia cannot claim victory against extremists but you have supporters of the nationalist movement saying look you can come at us at whatever direction you want we're not going anywhere we're fighting a race war and we're here to stay and i spoke to a supporter a wife of a person who was a market that he was targeting traders for central from central asia that were in moscow and she said you know what i'm proud of my husband he's a soldier and more russia's need to step up and be heroes here's more of our

trying his best but using the wrong science. i think their codes are being listened to but that actually the direction in which the science is going is misplaced and that's why people are angry. for many years i reported on this subject i started writing about it twenty five years ago and held the conventional view that if age was caused by a new virus when that was first released forward and in one place but over the years i've come to the conclusion that scientists who've been challenging that idea and who say that a.t.v. has never been proven as a of the pacific entity and therefore the tests that claim to diagnose a tidy infection are faulty i think they've got a very strong point and that that's why after all these years we're still seeing such dissatisfaction with the efforts of the scientific community it's not that they're not trying but but they're there mr recht in their efforts. now some other

world news this hour north korea has called for joint military exercises between south korea and the u.s. to be canceled a threat to global peace it also described new u.s. sanctions as a clear expression of intensified hostility in the clinton is expected to discuss the issue during the regional forum tension was heightened considerably in march after north korea was accused of sinking a warship belonging to the south. in the iraqi city of baquba these fifteen people have been killed after a car bomb explosion more than forty others including children were injured the blast went off in a shopping area near a shia mosque causing the partial collapse of houses and setting cars on fire it was the third attack this week in the northern diyala province. typhoon junk food is sweeping across southern china bringing more torrential rain to the country the storm comes after severe flooding and landslides that left more than seven hundred people dead and three hundred forty seven missing so far this year many roads
4:19 pm
bridges and houses have collapsed officials say damages from severe weather conditions are in the tens of billions of dollars it's the worst flooding in the country in over a decade. well i'll be back in ten minutes from now with the latest headlines in just a few minutes though we're talking to journalist and author jonathan cook who says that israel is a regional bully which actually benefits from the vision that's coming up very shortly stay with us here on alt.
4:20 pm
what i have jonathan cook a freelance journalist and author of three books mr cook thank you very much for joining us here on r.t. you are the only western journalist to be based here in nazareth the largest arab town in israel what kind of different insight does this give you to the conflict as opposed to most foreign journalists who are based in the centers of tel aviv to jerusalem and ramallah at that location itself. tends to select the focus of your work tends to prejudge what the issues major issues here are in the conflict and i think journalists who are based in the normal cities like jerusalem and tel aviv tend to assume that the conflict began in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven that it's a product of the occupation of the palestinian territories the west bank and gaza whereas my focus has been based being based inside israel in
4:21 pm
a palestinian or arab community how do you want to describe it is to see the conflict pre-dates nine hundred sixty seven why do you feel that is all should not be classified as a democracy bearing in mind that the arab community here can vote they can form their own political parties this idea that just because you have voting rights therefore you live in a democracy so superficially it sounds persuasive but actually it's not very persuasive and one of the ways to highlight that is by looking at the very early years the first twenty years of israel's existence when the palestinians inside israel lived under a military government. they couldn't move outside of their communities without a permit from military government government they lived under martial law but during that period they had full voting rights so with where they living under in a democracy the question really is how did israel engineer a situation where it could give voting rights to its palestinian minority and not feel threatened by me today that are there are several past and parties about one of them of ever being allowed to serve in the government none of them of held any
4:22 pm
positions of responsibility what's happened is that you. only participate in the government if you subscribe to this position which is that the jews are privileged population inside the country this isn't just about the parliament applies to many other kinds of spheres of life for them for instance there's no the palestinian minority have no control of their schooling their curriculum is decided by the jewish majority in your book blood and religion you've accused israel of a long slow process of ethnic cleansing but do you not think the fact that since nine hundred forty nine the arab israeli population as well as the palestinian population within the west bank and gaza the fact that those populations have grown considerably doesn't that challenge the theory you put forward well it's grown yes but the question is not just about the numbers it's also a question about where they live and of course there's been a lot of ethnic cleansing going on in the last seventy sixty seventy years and some people would argue that actually what israel is doing qualifies as genocide whether
4:23 pm
one wants to adopt that view or not there's a very clear issue here about where palestinians are being allowed to live and slowly they've been pushed further and further out of their historic homeland to the very margins of it now outside of it is always in the change the oath upon entering the israeli parliament no longer do members of parliament swear allegiance only to the state of israel but also to a jewish democratic state why do you think this happened what is the significance well this is part of a much wider trend to do with loyalty what it would boil to legislation as the government's now calling it mr mr lieberman's party. this far right party i've already mentioned he he he got elected on a plan he's the third largest party in the parliament he was elected all of them or you look out over there in order to get citizenship and his party's been introducing a series of buildings to try and ensure that palestinian citizens have less and less legitimacy with
4:24 pm
a little sister but not all of the bills are being passed but but there. changing the whole discourse in israel into one in which the assumption is that palestinians are not loyal they have should have no rights they have to prove their loyalty and so this is very much part of that whole search the same kind of move you talk about lack of loyalty but recently an elderly member of parliament earnings wabi lost some of her purpose just because she participated in the fraternity which some israelis felt essentially put her wall with israel but it's a strange idea that you need to be at war with humanitarian activists who are trying to bring aid to people of gaza. i have asked question for all of us we should look at say what is it legitimate to attack in international waters both taking aid to people who are you know what according to all the other surveys taken by by international bodies like the united nations are suffering from malnutrition many other things so i mean of course it was a very different situation and she's not only doing that as a concern global citizen which is interesting because it's her people she's a member of the palestinian people you've stated that israeli prime minister
4:25 pm
benjamin netanyahu his first term of office was characterized by the deceit of the american president clinton and also attempts to destroy the peace process do you believe that the strategy continues now in his second term of office he's saying to a group of settlers he doesn't think he's being filmed he doesn't realize he's being filmed but he tells the this group of settlers exactly what he did in his first term in the late ninety's during the all slow process and that what he did was to deceive bill clinton to give away very small areas of of occupied territory in return for agreements that they would have to give much larger areas of occupied territories and thereby destroy the whole principle of the overall slower process and of course although he doesn't say it about that very much explains the palestinian reaction which led to the second intifada while following on from what you've said is this why isn't why you say that israel actually once and benefits from the chaos of the middle east well i've argued that israel is in favor of chaos
4:26 pm
in the middle east partly because. it's. following in a tradition of a well known colonial tradition of dividing and rule one that israel has implemented in the occupied territories the lesson israel learned from that is it's a very effective way of stopping any kind of resistance to your plans the palestinians have struggled to to counteract israel's initiatives because they've been so divided. it's been a very useful strategy inside israel in the occupied territories what is the solution would you support a one state solution i'm support anything that brought peace and gave palestinians and israeli jews the right to live happy contented lives. the question is how do you achieve that now some people say you can do it through two state solution i don't actually think that's even technically possible any longer if it ever was we're talking about very small areas of land that would be left to the palestinians
4:27 pm
nobody's talking about it being a militarized state who control the borders i mean there are all sorts of questions that nobody really wants to look at in any kind of depth at the moment because everybody knows the answers would mean that this wouldn't really be a proper state jonathan karl thank you very much for joining us here on r.t. .
