3:01 pm
hello it's crunch time for palestinians eagerly anticipating the u.n. vote which may see them granted long sought after statehood it's said to take place just one hour from now may potentially see the autonomy status of great to the position of known that member state of observer state that's crucial word state well earlier i discussed the issue with artie's paullus leader in tel aviv a report at the un headquarters in new york. palestine is expected to win its un bid by an overwhelming majority more than one hundred thirty nations of the general assembly including at least fifteen european states are reportedly planning to folks to vote in favor of lifting the palestinian authority one status from entity to observer states now palestine only needs two thirds of the majority of the general assembly to win this reza. lucian's to win this vote now the u.s.
3:02 pm
has been aggressively campaigning against today's contentious showdown on wednesday u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton said that washington has made it very clear to the palestinian leadership the u.s. opposes policy now for it's to upgrade their status at the u.n. outside of the framework of direct negotiations france on the other hand is expected to vote in favor of the palestinians and the u.s. has expressed regret over what it calls a clash between allies now with its elevated stallard status palestine will be able to join the international criminal court this would allow palestine to press for investigations into israel's prop disses in the occupied territories the authority will also be able to seek membership in specialized agencies of the u.n. now the u.s. has publicly threatened to cut off financing to international organizations that it made palestine as a member our viewers may remember that back in two thousand and eleven u.s. congress cut financing to unesco after it accepted palestine as
3:03 pm
a member now palestine did about fourteen months ago submit an application for full membership to the united nations this application was blocked by the u.s. it didn't even come before the security council for a vote because the u.s. threatened to veto a full membership for palestine and this is what leads us to the current a story that we're talking about today this vote this showdown that will be taking place within the u.n. general assembly in just a few hours. very closely it is really really sort of pulled out of the pull of what here's the reaction from israel towards this palestinian bid tonight. the israeli government is calling this a bad political theater saying it's a bad day for peace and a bad day for we can see the ation essentially they have toned down the kind of trick the kind of threats of sense. since that we've been hearing coming from tel
3:04 pm
aviv over the past few days they were threatening sanctions although saying that their intention was not to anyway pull down the palestinian authority or invoke any kind of irreversible steps the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu has made the point that the resolution is one sided and that it will not advance any kind of peace efforts in fact he says it will do exactly the reverse netanyahu saying that the only way forward is for israelis and palestinians to sit down together in direct talks at the negotiating table and this is essentially the israeli position they believe that the palestinians are seeking statehood with out resolving some of the core issues that really are fundamental to the discussions and to the disagreements between israelis and palestinians and they want to see those kind of issues resolved first before they can be any talk of statehood but we saw the scenes just now in the headlines hundreds of people flooding the streets of ramallah and gaza city in support of the bid submitted by authorities for the westberg. reports on why the success of the u.n.
3:05 pm
is so important for palestinians. today we've seen widespread demonstrations across ramallah with hundreds of people in the west bank demonstrating supporting manifesting mass aport of this policy to try and get an increased status here in the gaza strip we've seen literally thousands of people supporting. mahmoud abbas's policy and this bid for statehood so here is a strong excitement that the walls will finally recognize the palestinians rights increased sense there is a minority here in the gaza strip the feels that this is not in the palestinian longtime interest particularly with respect to the palestinian refugees rights of our time not being the palestinian refugees who live outside of the middle east who are refugee in the forces well if it's if it's successful i'll be a manifest victory for the palestinian cause if it's on successful hamas will
3:06 pm
almost certainly be strengthened people will see passes presidency as very much weaker hamas will definitely be strengthened here in the gaza strip something that israel and the united states european states north american states generally speaking will be heidi dismayed about. press secretary for the israeli prime minister he told me that his country has never derailed the palestinian struggle for statehood. we called to mahmoud abbas for years to come and return to the table of negotiations and israel i want to to remind you that israel did everything that israel could to proceed to give chance to this to this process we stopped if buildings stopped building in day in some area for turn months what no government before this government and at the end of the of this. of this step of israel nothing happened palestinians didn't
3:07 pm
get back to the negotiations they did back very symbolically and it was done in two weeks and it again failed so i think that israel done everything he could to bring back this process but again we have to provide security to israel. when the key question is if the u.n. approves a palestinian state to drive is what it would be for the future of israeli settlements in the west bank and east jerusalem but my finkelstein's american political scientist now activist he told me the upgraded status may help palestinians in their fight for territory. won't be frozen but the palestinian authority will have the option of going to the international criminal court which are under the wrong statues statutes under the rome star choose which are the statutes of the international criminal court they state that the settlements are a war crime and the palestinian authority will have the opportunity if they get it
3:08 pm
when they get the observers there is to go to the international criminal court for israel's criminal behavior in the occupied territories. well go to the united nations coming up within the hour keep your course up to date on the outcome if you still decide on the details as well you can always check out our website we've got perspectives from all sides as well as plenty of analysis on the story. the wide reaching leveson report into the standards of the u.k. press has suggested it should be regulated by a new independent body backed by legislation while prime minister cameron didn't look very happy about the idea of a press regulating law he deputy pm but the initiative earlier talked about his police more insight on the story. lord leveson very damning in his report about the press ethics of some of the parts of the newspaper industry said that they ruined and retaliate quite some innocent people's lives also very critical of politicians cozy relationship that's how he called it with powerful media organizations and
3:09 pm
what his recommendations really boiled down to was that he says the u.k. needs to create a new independent press watchdog that will be underpinned by new legislation but the government agree with the findings david cameron has just responded to lord leveson is recommend ations now he says he wholeheartedly agrees with the report he agrees that the system that we currently have in the u.k. of press regulation is badly broken and it needs a radical overhaul however he's concerned about creating new legislation in order to underpin a new watchdog he thinks that it's possible to make long lasting radical changes to the way that the press is regulated without changing the law let's take a listen to what he said in the house of commons the issue of principle is that for the first time we've crossed the rubicon of writing elements of press regulation into the law. we should i believe any legislation that has the potential to
3:10 pm
infringe free speech what was the opinion of the other side of the barricades if you like from the journalists well we actually had the labor leader ed miliband responding as well he said that he agrees with lord leveson recommendations but actually he thinks that the law should be changed now the journalists and the press community they're not very enthusiastic about changing the law or in bringing in more stringent regulation that could be enforced by new laws they say that that could threaten the very nature of freedom of speech here in britain now we spoke to one journalist a little bit earlier and let's take a listen to what he said. the trouble with freedom of speech is that it's not like any other industry it's not like estate agents or lawyers in which you can drop regulations it's a fundamental thing that we all have and it's a it's a natural right. so it's not something you can just sort of tinker with so it looks
3:11 pm
like whether or not to underpin this new regulatory body by law is really going to be the bone of contention and the debate that's going to be raging on about it is only just starting at a very good chat about this very subject with u.k. based investigative journalist tony goes that he believes that it's not the press that should have been demonized. let's not leave aside for a minute the fact that lord justice leveson is a close friend of elizabeth murdoch is not really the right person to do this job but what happened here is we've had an inquiry into the press where actually the problem that started all this was a criminal gang it looks like within the murdoch newsroom operating beyond the law and really the failure was not of the press it was of the police who failed to do their job for something like six years they had information about all sorts of phone hacking that was going on including people who were trying to help the victims of the seven seven london bombings having their phones criminally hacked
3:12 pm
boy the news of the world by the murdoch empire at the end of the day the journalists don't own the transmitters the journalists don't own the printing presses it's the proprietors and the editors who are really really culpable here i don't know if this is going to cause a lot of changes with the way that our press operates and i think that's because they're very rich very powerful very difficult for anybody but the rich to get access to justice when it comes to the british media but also to buy the transmitters and buy the printing presses to run the press in britain so you know the poor don't get justice at all coming up with me kevin belgrade accuses the hague of bias after war crimes tribunal acquits of former cos of a general of killing and torturing student ninety ninety two you can. live feels the bailout heat with the media of lawmakers blasting chancellor merkel could see only the true cost of saving greece we reveal more on that after this break.
