desires peace needs to be careful rule. and i thought that was very telling. of the psyche that. exists behind his political. weight and i thought i could not. minister with this kind of statement is a statement supported by the majority of israelis i think we israelis yes we. we grew up. with you that. we need to be on alert. to any more most israelis live a life that is quite bad and you can cut it out of the environment he planted in the us or in europe western europe and you will find the israelis quite. easily integrating into society into requirements in place and so on so it's not. the regimented society of my
childhood. all the time it's at any given point in time but it is true that israelis are not naive and they believe that we can survive here in the middle east. only if we ready to fight when you resigned to same time message to all the staff of the foreign ministry explaining the resignation what was the reaction and what is the general mood like among israeli public servants concerning the policies that will have to differ and i have no illusions some of us were frustrated by my letter. because. it is outside of. it you just drop out because you don't like the message the messenger has no view over the message that is required of conduct and. it's quite legitimate to think
exactly how many missions don't agree with the message and how many don't in the foreign ministry in my view. the large majority don't care they are professionals and whatever message comes for them to believe that they will do. if there is solid minority ministry that is politically motivated to promote. israel. in its. rather. hawkish. position its just government. is pursuing. i think we do also have the lefties leftovers from the past but i think the minority your last overseas posting was as ambassador to south africa what is your experience in
south africa teaching as far as the christian nation is all is concerned. i think that israel is. in a danger zone to slide. by default. into. money for stations of apartheid if we don't take it. and i'm afraid we don't take it and there's going to contain in the united states as far as israeli policies on iran and palestine does how tight is the west between the united states and israel or is it merely another squabble i'm surprised to realize how deep the americans care for israel is when it comes to the conversation the political conversation in the us. i also can see how. the aftermath of the war in iraq and enough guns. and the. can fatigue of the middle east.
could work badly for the image is present in the u.s. in the political discourse in the us. in the context of american interests god forbid that the u.s. will be more reluctant. to reach out for israel because our predicament now is like a result of a policy pursued by this current government in a way that i think is tragically wrong. that we lean to the american congress a single source of strength in our diplomatic fabric and that is. very dangerous what's gone on for much of the plane israel has become increasingly isolated on the international stage what should the country. to bring it out of the
isolation in my view this government. very explicitly. made a statement to the fake that this is a step. intentionally. of the paradigm of land for peace and occupation is the key to. a settlement in the middle east. and into a new paradigm. that stipulates the ownership of israel exclusive ownership of it. over the entirety of the land of israel which comprises in the in the eyes of palestinians palestine that paradigm is a dead end i think it is immoral morally and practically it's not sustainable and that is the reason why i left government i thought i could not. that's kind of
off message thank you moon the united nations chain has called on its all to end of occupation of palestine morning that is warmly to now the israeli palestinian conflict but if the israeli government is willing to listen israel does on the west bank and the gaza strip whatever it likes. and. things are changing fast on the ground in favor of entrenching israeli presence in palestinian areas i don't think really jerusalem pays much attention too much attention to what to the secretary-general of the u.n. is saying who can it's all been lie on in the region considering that in the aftermath of the arab spring the middle east has become more radicalized i don't think israel is looking for allies i think israel is looking for. partners. of convenience. one is jordan. whose survivability in the way in the
form we know it is a house in my kingdom. so we entertain. a lot of common interests egypt is consumed by its own revolution and as long as it doesn't pose a threat to us i think israel is taking a very careful distance and turkey. it cut a straw figure foreign policy towards one of the emerging powers in the middle green you that's why syria goes what is the best outcome for israel and why does the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu wants everything change in syria if that would mean also i could mean another islamic state on the border i don't think israel came there. have an impact on the outcome of any regime change there. it
is underway anyway. so to ignore the fact that there is a regime change in the making in syria would be. unacceptable but at the same time we need to be very careful not to expedite it is there any way that it all could support and i would take military invasion of crimea that qatar headquarter for and what to expect an invasion mean for israel and for the region i can hardly see the arab world rigid minting around one force that is prepared to walk into syria physically and intervene then i don't see it happening how much of a prick isn't down to regional security it is very obvious that iran is pursuing its position as a regional power. to serve interests that go beyond the immediate borders of iran it is tried merely defensive primarily it
responds to the desire of iran to protect itself that is one level the other is the domestic political discourse in israel the right wing always. profited from a nervous public mood on you defense issues and i think a lot about what is a lot of what is said about your run actually serves political aims and i'm. very angry about that i think it should be stopped at once the thank you ma'am complaining attack and well i don't think this could be as well as attacking iran i don't know but common sense say that israel is critically critically dependent on international legitimacy. respond the response is dry. on the run would be. a

hello there thanks for watching the sports on this is what is coming up fighting his conviction cyclists alberto contador calls his two year ban a terrible injustice and considers an appeal. while russian olympic medal hopes the martha room she either faces a frantic legal battle in her bid to compete at the london games. and stampeding elephants we look at how the ivory coast pairing to live up to their favorites tag in the semifinals of the africa cup of nations. but first disgraced cyclist alberto contador says he hasn't ruled out a painting against his two year ban for failing a drugs test the spaniard was stripped of his twenty ten tour de france title after testing positive for performance enhancing drug clenbuterol he held a news conference at his home town of pinto just side madrid and told reporters he
had no intention of quitting cycling while also reiterating befell the drug test as a result of eating contaminated meat an explanation rejected by the court of arbitration for sport. though i try hard i cannot understand that bernie imposed during the past months i've been trying to do my best to prove my innocence even jandali returns to five hours answering questions like you can lead criminals i also want to and everybody knows i will continue cycling i will continue practicing in a clean way and i've done it all my entire life though i don't feel my best i think in the future at least will make me tougher. while the cycling team saxo bank are standing by him contador is able to compete again in august after his two year ban was back dated although that still means he will miss this year's year at italia tour de france and the olympics. as a team to support
a battle. because we want to do the thing that is correct that's why we have supported him in this case all the way until now and we still do when we look at the ruling today we see no reason not to support him to do a long time but of course. a veteran i we have to sit down together. and talk about the future as. if he had. i wish that he wants to continue we could see i can only say that my intention will be the same. but in contrast contador has little sympathy from the world anti-doping agency its president john farley has branded contador a cheat and says the court ruling was a clear warning to cyclists. the simple fact is that anyone who has a prohibited substance in their system. is h.
it. it's as simple as that any argument then comes as to what was the method what was the nature of how that prohibited substance got into the system. cheat effectively the moment you got that substance in there and that analysis disclosed and tested this was very comprehensively bike as well another major legal battle in sport is looming this time to help medal hopeful to not to really shy to represent russia at this summer's london olympics the pentathlete was born in lithuania but is obtained a russian passport although her native country is not stopped from competing. as the story. just a week after turning twenty four and with multiple world cup wins under her belt do not are you shy to should be a shoo in for the fast approaching london games or so you would think because for these modern pentathlon to second the increase i'm now a huge doubt in beijing in two thousand and eight she competed for leaf urania but
has since married a russian and was granted a russian passport and though do not has been cleared to fly the russian flag at other major events she needed the formality of permission from the league here in olympic committee to go to london but her request was denied. but i think the sports officials and some patriots are against me but a lot of ordinary people still support me he could say we feel any split in two over this a lot of people have been leaving the country to earn money elsewhere and some may think i've come to russia to rolling cash which is not the case donato went on to say she was on the verge of tears and her mother cried twice at last month's meeting in leaf yanira the sports summit has threatened her entire career and she described it as a circus while the reporter at the time culture a traitor she knows the chances are slim the chill be given the go ahead to compete in london but she's focusing on the tournament's thing and if lead should first of
all think of quality training and preparing for events if i don't make the olympics after all i'll have other important events to get ready for the european and world championships and all small matters. so potentially a massive blow for russia who counted on the room shouted to deliver in the british capital they plan to appeal at both the court of arbitration for sport and the international olympic committee but no one is under any illusions have a medal hopes to remain about to get the knot that is our leader and will compete in other events this year but her mission won't undermine the russian squad because measures have been taken to regroup it's not a happy situation. but we still hope for podium places in london. is already setting his sights on the real games in twenty sixteen well russia also have a strong message contingent including athens and b.g. champion and dreamy suv to cheer on in london. r t let's switch to
football where it is it is semi final state the africa cup of nations ivory coast star studded squad take on mali in the gabba nice capital real elephants of big name plays including mention the city tour and chelsea's didier drogba and that's made them favorites for the trophy and i ricotta produced an impressive three nil win over co-host equitorial guinea in the last eight but despite their obvious talent their coach is always wary of the opposition. as we go forward with what i would say is a lot of cohesiveness because we know that everything we've achieved is fragile and that in a game or a certain situation it could all crumble so we're being very prudent to deserve our country we're trying to be wives in the other game tonight ghana will be seeking to reach the final for the second time in a row they take on zambia at the barter stadium in equitorial guinea but their build up hasn't been ideal garner were forced to cancel their monday training
session after their flight from dearborn mich delayed however they remain the favorites all the exam are the surprise package of the tournament after their three no win over sudan in the last eight. meanwhile over in spain athletic bilbao have reached the final of the copper del ray after an emphatic sixty when. second leg when last night we go through a three on the aggregate ending around this is fairy tale run in which they have beaten the like self in the reality. i'm racing since in the final at. barcelona or valencia to play their second leg tonight barcelona have home advantage after drawing one one zero in the first game and are boosted by the return of. three games who have taken part in training this week of fighting for titles on four fronts at the moment and the manager says his players are up for the challenge. we have the chance of playing in the fourth final of the season and i think the
players are aware of this is a challenge sport gives you these new opportunities have been able to repeat some to make this after achieving so much in the past we've already pleaded difficult quarter first leg of the semifinal. in other news can be right can and has marked his return to formula one with the fastest time on the first day of pre-season testing the thinnest back behind the wheel would like to say after spending two years away from the sport competing in the world ready championship but he blew away any cobwebs with a blistering lap time during testing in g.r. as in spain he took just under one minute and twenty seconds which was just ahead of force india's paul di resta red bull's mark webber was more than a tenth of a second back reichen a former f one world champion said everything had gone to plan but he obviously wasn't getting carried away. i don't think it makes any difference i mean. you try to do the things. to cover that for the series and. times.
since. you did more planning to do before we started today. and you boxing tournament gets underway in moscow this evening although organizers will be hoping it runs a bit more smoothly than the way in after the main star failed to show up colombian welterweight ignacio mendoza wasn't there after his flight was delayed he's a record of thirty three victories from forty one fights needs to take on heavy out of india the russian has won all fifteen of his bags in sixty three kilograms while a top the billing for the real boxing t.v. event which brings together fighters from around the world also on the card is russian cruiserweight good quality draws he has thirty three wins on just one defeat and could be a handful for his to make an opponent richard hope. i give him a lot of respect to choose to fight with because i never know much about him he
chose to fight me so i give my whole lot of respect to fighters turned me down. you know he chose to fight and so i give my a lot of respect this sort of just put my. next step to the level of crime in crime and i know this is the next step to it. because in this step with the stuff i've got to go over to get to my next step. well definitely at the top of their sport of the new york giants and they are still lapping up their super bowl triumph thousands of fans lined the streets of manhattan to cheer the side that beat the new england patriots on sunday confetti wafted through the air as the team hoist the vince lombardi trophy for make littering blue white flight after cruising through the canyon they were honored by the city hall before traveling to new jersey for a rally at the meth life stadium. well done to them that brings us to the end of the sport more later.
a poacher approach to the syrian. washington's stepping up its rhetoric for regime change in syria ignoring moscow's attempts to bring both us and the opposition together for peace talks. the rift between the e.u. and the u.k. grows into a chasm after the european court of human rights paves the way for the release of osama bin laden's. top military official will head to cairo to try and suspend criminal charges against american n.g.o.s as egypt's military leaders crack down on the west to help to steer them to power last year. and. the ruble has advanced against the dollar to its highest level and five months on the back of strong oil prices join me for
a full business twenty minutes time. world wide news live from the heart of this with me. the situation in syria will not improve unless both sides shift from the battlefield to the negotiating table that is the message from russia's foreign minister who recently returned from the capital damascus let's get some more details on this now of course of the live to all of these are. going to tell us what is the situation on the ground just a day off to russia's delegation. well right now in that is to riyadh there were reports coming from the studio that the heavy artillery that they have the shelling is continuing on the city also there are some unconfirmed reports saying that the army troops are moving towards the center but of course not.
