really is and absolutely in leadership to your question. i'm not sure that the israeli leadership is so keen to have iran as an enemy. and you're trying to maybe to hint is this israelis looking israel is looking for enemies even in places where there aren't any what i'm thinking is that israel to some extent is the sort of a post traumatic country popular saw about the post-traumatic nation a nation suffered from holocaust suffered from a world that would not listen to the words of the nazi regime and now is so anxious that the world will hear what the iranian leadership has said about the about israel what they call the high us are you near the zionist entity and the leadership in iran including mr rouhani some years ago including mainly the supreme leader ali khamenei has called for the destruction of israel and there is
3:31 pm
no dispute between all intelligence services including the russian s.v.r. when speaking off the record that iran is trying to obtain nuclear military capability iran cannot justify its immense nuclear build up by trying to create energy they don't need mr bergman i don't think iran always this explanation or that justification to ease a real or indeed any other country for that matter and let me just mention that while israeli history was indeed very traumatic it's by far it's not the only country that have very painful experience throughout history but coming back specifically to the talks if we look at the details of the deal that's where under discussion in geneva if you believe diplomatic sources it was really the first time in many many years when diplomats write a bill to trance. sound these blame game and to finally discuss some specific
3:32 pm
proposals more concretely they were discussing the possibility of iran's halting medium grade enrichment in return for some. for lifting some secondary sanctions and you have or when the details of that deal were leaked to the media benjamin netanyahu israeli prime minister took the stand and here's how he described the idea let's have a listen understand the iranians are walking around very satisfied and move on as well they should be because they got everything and paid nothing everything they wanted they wanted relief of sanctions after years of a grueling sanctions regime they got that they're paying nothing because they're not reducing in any way their nuclear. enrichment capability so you're on got the deal of the century. and the international community got a bad deal this is a very bad deal now iran got
3:33 pm
a deal of the century and the international community got a very very bad deal and yet if we look at the details that are under discussion it's not just that netanyahu is being over the top he's simply being hysterical and that may be in line with your earlier argument that israel is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder but isn't that ultimately the the constant israeli style to throw a temper tantrum every time when any chance of their in a realistic progress with regards to iran is on the table. leave it to you and your expect to turn allies the mental situation of the israeli prime minister i would say the two moping in the fact that the superpowers and the iran are sitting around a negotiation table in a different atmosphere before is extremely positive. trying to be
3:34 pm
confident that the international community is not going to be misled by iran just trying to stall time gain more time in order to advance its nuclear project before signing a new treaty in the time being we haven't seen any deal yet being struck between the two parties you know that the americans now are charging the rain and snow the israelis are charging being the remains in. basically damaging the current negotiations and reaching nothing. was wrong there was no deal nothing was reached yet well but if you talk to the american officials and many other officials who took part in those negotiations they clearly put the blame not only on the israelis and the netanyahu as efforts to sabotage the deal publicly but also on the. francesa shells for side if that down but i wonder if he if israel had its way what
3:35 pm
would be the ideal scenario in your view for it for netanyahu the israeli government be administration the intelligence community corporate in quite closely with the united states have drawn very clear rules to what is seen as a minimal demands from israel and this is the complete complete disembarkation the disassemble meant off of the secret enrichment site in four doon in the city the holy city of call and just to remind you this is a site that iran has built without the permission or the knowledge of the international community of the united states and united nations against the nonproliferation treaty in breach of everything that iran has signed and this was risk discovered only thanks to the intelligence effort of the british government the us cia and the israeli my son so israel calls for the complete this assembling of this for do it end the very strict scrutiny over all be your clear
3:36 pm
sites of iran including approach in this secret side the iranians have not yet in the last ten years let the u.n. inspectors go in the complete stop of enrichment to nineteen point seven percent the shipment of everything that was already enriched of this quality to russia any other country that is willing to go and the very clear maximum level of enrichment to three point five percent now where is the problem the problem is that iran will never agree to this these minimal demands from from israel because iran would see this as a breach of its sovereign right to enrich uranium under the n.p.t. mr bergman when you were asked talking about the air construction of this facility far do you imagine that it was constructed against the. international norms and so on but according to the amputee it iran has to notify the international community
3:37 pm
within six months of launching difficile it so all these claims about that facility being against international law or he came to national or to then to buy be ready and mis information well i don't want to leave these really it wasn't for me i mean we we are. not do not box i do not but it is really one there was an n.p.t. the clear ration very harsh very strong against the establishment the secret establishment over of the for do so. nation the european community the united states barack obama who broke the news about the existence of this i do not listen to this really iran violated international law so many times iran was declared in breach of the n.p.t. there are still remaining questions but the fact that there are questions doesn't mean that they are in violation i think you cannot claim that simply because there are some questions unanswered that they are there being viable in violation of the
3:38 pm
treaty and in fact they have been on a. run for evil corporations with their organization as far as i know it is not over this is not true while the chiefs even even muhammad the bar the former chief who is very mild towards iran have said repeatedly that iran is not fulfilling the n.p.t. let me switch gears a little bit one of the most quoted phrases in geopolitics these days is the one attributed to mahmoud ahmadinejad about supposedly why being israel of the map and we know that that's phrase was taken out of context he was mistranslated and yet it is these really officials that quote him a lot more often than any on there you are you're a propaganda we go look i don't know how much you know about iranian history. you know why. i don't quite a lot believe me well you have you have just quoted two main lies that are being
3:39 pm
spread by iranian propaganda look i think that israel. has quite a lot of blame in this war propaganda and i can say something about israeli propaganda but iranian propaganda for example trying to undermine the declaration of mahmoud ahmadinejad for the destruction of israel for the destruction of the zionist entity as he nickname is for denouncing or supporting of suicide terrorism he's supported publicly and sent his troops and his money well suicide terrorists are supported all over the world including by israel including by the united states so it's not that specific only to iran unfortunately you you mahmoud ahmadinejad have denied the holocaust you support his denial of the holocaust as well or you claim by things that these pieces of holocaust has no relation to the nuclear issue i don't see why we have to constantly lump them
3:40 pm
together the fact that he denies the fact that germany was trying to waste over. really hell you know just run by why why why why even discuss his proposal oxana but i didn't say anything about whether you call that if i can ask you a question even relation to that because this phrase about wiping israel off the map you know it's it is used a lot by air israeli officials to justify supposedly the existential threat that they're they're facing and i sometimes feel feel that you know in what they're did if you're not if you're the same david you are there is an iranian program there was nothing less intense absolutely exorbitant demands that you just quoted that no other country would average it greets you. i wonder why i couldn't israel cut its appetite a little bit and suggest something a little bit more constructive than
3:41 pm
a total hold to any nuclear program whatsoever let me give you the facts effect of it the european union revolutionary guard the ministry of information first. secretly and then publicly. support hamas which is recognized as a terrorist organization all over the world in russia as well supported the palestinian islamic jihad and supporters by law in lebanon this is fact number one fact number two iran has tried to develop nuclear weapon this is agreed by all intelligence services in the world we three can you cite the intelligence agencies who agree on that the american cia the friend the g.s.t. the british and my six an m i five the german b. and d. and the russian s. the aren't they all agree on that that's not true that's simply not sure this is
3:42 pm
true i don't know how many sources you have within the sphere but i can hear this is the source as a result of this policy bible cia and all the intelligence agencies that you mention and they simply say that at this point of time there is no proof that iraq has attempted to divert its nuclear program for weapons to weaponization but if you believe that that is a statement of fact please continue your misquoting and i'll give you the luxury of enjoying the fact that you just don't want this we're going to silence the last innocent little girls and sorting this by purpose and fact number three that the leadership of iran throughout the years and there are numerous publications and statement by the leaders of iran from ayatollah khomeini to all the other main leaders including the so-called moderate rafsanjani that calls publicly for the destruction of israel and do not acknowledge the right of the jewish people have
3:43 pm
a state now these are the facts the facts remain there i think that israelis have at least the right to fear that the same iran who is funding publicly without denying funding terrorists there are many states that support terrorist. the united states for example supports terrorism in syria and their hundreds of thousands of people now have been killed as a result of the support for terrorist activity the united states supporting terrorism in iraq so yes a real numerous reports that the united states the previous administration supported chechen terrorism in russia indeed it's part of public record but again let's keep our attention on iran you mentioned many leaders who were indeed very bellicose in their rhetoric towards israel but there is now a new leader in teheran and that means a new leader has a somewhat more conciliatory tone and it seems that decision makers in washington as well seem to see some sort of rare possibility for
3:44 pm
a breakthrough with iran and they seem to be the most frustrated about the public statements by netanyahu i wonder how how strong do you think this disagreement the current disagreement between the united states and israel on the issue of arrive really is i think serious and i think that prime minister benjamin netanyahu has made a mistake with going public with his criticism over this negotiation i think that israel should have supported the negotiation between the united states and the international community and iran i think that benjamin netanyahu has made a mistake we see a real crisis between the countries that with me that will become more and more severe when we get close to be a ledge of the deal between iran and the superposed ok mr bergman we have to take a short break now but when we come back as democratic and stake a more sober look at their relationship with israel there seems to be and new on
3:45 pm
likely union in the making the one between israel and saudi arabia what will come of it that's coming up in a few moments on worlds apart. there's a war on for a piece of the mud pie yes the government is doling out some maggot infested pieces of mud pie benefit slop and the peasant voters are beating each other up trying to grab a slice or two and if that fails then they try to deprive their neighbor of his unfair piece of the mud pie but while tax revolt austerity riots capture the public's imagination in secret back rooms in europe america trade deals are currently being negotiated which will impose a so-called investor state upon us all.
3:46 pm
right. first trip. and i think. on our reporters. on the. torch is on its epic journey to. one hundred twenty three days. through two hundred cities of russia. really fourteen thousand people or sixty thousand killings. in a record setting trip. there. are numbers face. a
3:47 pm
list the torch relay. on r t r c dot com. welcome back to worlds apart. we're discussing israeli efforts to undermine international talks and the iranian nuclear issue with investigative journalist ron and bergman mr bergman i want to come back to this statement by benjamin attorney after that we played earlier and in that statement he also asserted that israel was not alone in rejecting the the proposed geneva deal let's listen to what he had to say. israel utterly rejects it and what i'm saying is shared by many many in the regions whether or not they express it publicly. now as we all know israel doesn't really have many allies in the region. possibly with one notable and very curious
3:48 pm
exception and that is saudi arabia saudi arabia that also sees iran as an enemy and a country that also seems to experience at this current moment some difficulties with washington what do you what do you make of these ones and imaginable union dispute the fact that israel has only one alone in the area we share the same set of interests i think that most of the countries in the middle east share the same sort of interest with israel they all fear islamic terrorism the forms of hamas islamic jihad they all despise the countries even syria of president assad and most of all the fear in islamic shiite extreme state like iran holding a nuclear weapon if you go interview the wiki leaks cables that were published just two years ago you'll see transcripts of meetings between rulers of ghost gulf states and emirate countries where they called the american strike
3:49 pm
iran when they see very favorably a possible aerial strike from israel on only iran that's exactly my point that it is gulf state goal staved that primarily support israel the same goal states that if you look at that media if you look at. what is being published in saudi arabia what is being sad in sarah saudi arabia in mosques you know the extent of victual against israel is simply a parallel to you would never hear anything of this sort even in iran so i wonder why do you think this unlikely union really emerged i think sela that you view the situation a very superficial way indeed overtly there are a lot of states who support into israeli resolutions in the united nation and publicly condemned israel but under the publics reader conduct and in and intimate intelligence cooperation and operational cooperation with israel we're not talking
3:50 pm
just about saudi arabia we're talking about egypt we're talking about jordan a document many gulf states and iran before the arena for khomeini so israel has formed secret allies with countries that publicly support the end the israeli line but covered really support not israel but the same set of of interest and without disclosing military and intelligence secrets i would say that many of the operations including sassoon nations that were conducted against you reigning in and. jihadi star gets in the last ten years by israeli mossad we're not so it's assessed successful it was not with the help of many arab countries in the middle east that helped israel conducted this not because they like israel but because they share the same sort of of enemy and the same sort of interests mr bergman it's interesting that you mentioned that this secret operation between israel and other
3:51 pm
countries because we often oftentimes hear that israel is supposedly the only democracy in the middle east and yet all that pro israeli views that you have expressed they may be shared only by intelligence community because if you look at any public opinion poll in the region the extent of. anti israel. is not just on the rise it's among the highest in the world and this very negative sentiment is no longer constrained to the region itself it's really spreading there around the world do you think that israel is now risking becoming a pariah state well unfortunately for the first time in this lovely vibrant conversation accent i'm afraid that i'm almost close to agree with you i think that the numbers that the measurement that you describe are a bit exaggerated but indeed with the continuation of the dispute between israel and the palestinian people we see a major back to your ration in the international stand of israel and there is
3:52 pm
a gap a growing gap between as i described before an intimate intelligence operational and political cooperation behind the scenes of governments and administration in the middle east that see the these interest in the same way and the public growing hatred towards israel. and it is not limited unfortunately only to the middle east and indeed israel is getting the ear to the same stand of the. pariah state of the lepers regime of the apartheid in south africa in one thousand until one thousand nine hundred two if the palestinian story the palestinian dispute the palestinian. wish to have their own state is not solved in the near future i'm afraid that we are going to see the continuation of this harming process . hopefully the leadership of israel would understand soon enough that israel
3:53 pm
cannot prolong cannot continue to hold the top of the territories and should let the palestinians build their own national country or national state by israel. hopefully it will happen so let me ask you the final question bajan anatomy. africa has been warning the world over of the grave danger amman a thing from iran for almost twenty years almost as long as iranians have been railing against the suppose it plagues of zionism yet now it seems that with the election of heinie iran has changed its tune or at least toned down its bellicose rhetoric what do you think are the chances of a similar and change of leadership similar change or far rather rank and tel aviv i mean what are the chances of electing a reformist leader in israel and when i say reformist i mean first and foremost on
3:54 pm
the issue of iran. i don't think that i would phrase the question in this way but i do but i can i can say that if iran. would give the world not just israel but worked in enough during team guarantees and safeguards that it is not trying to develop nuclear weapons if iran would be full disclosure of information and will not be caught in more immobilised to the international community and if you run cease to support jihadist movement in the middle east i think you will see a different tone coming from israel as you said we do hear different tones from iran there's no doubt about well different tones mean different actions and actions should be seen in in the field mr bergman how can iran really do what
3:55 pm
you just sat it like they proposed they it is agreed to some moderate steps halting medium grade uranium enrichment in return for lifting some secondary sanctions day they agreed to make that first step but israel in the in the actions. prime minister refused that so do you expect iran to deal everything at once or would you see that any more step by step fashion i know that iran is musters of negotiations and i think that they should be very cautious we negotiated with them because they're very very good with how over from the if you want me to reflect the israeli point of view the news release would like to see the end game if there are steps of . building trust measurement in the meantime that's that's fine but how would this and this is the question that is being asked by the state by the government of israel will iran disassemble the site in four do when you run stop give
3:56 pm
a complete shutdown to every other facility except for minor facilities for the enrichment for three point five percent will iran give the u.n. inspectors the right to visit pitchiness where they test the. the core of the warhead of the of the missile so if this is this is the end game and if this is reached i think israel will not even a stubborn right wing hawkish prime minister benjamin netanyahu will not he will not have any other choice but to align with the international community well mr bergman as far as i understand israel once it reached the finish line thing without even running the race i think unfortunately this is all they have time for we have to wrap up here thank you very much for your time and to our viewers if you like the sheltie trying as again same place same time here and while that might.
3:57 pm
it is obviously more for the latest because it's pink. women wanted to avoid rape they really need to buy guns and. this is the one that i want to go with them once again it's the field full of women definitely the target of the gun lobby and you don't want to kill them when the killing money would have somebody with you with this with her. i've noticed that more and more and that's really scary marketing tactics which implies that women have some sort of moral obligation to protect their family and young girls shoot out here too so we do have a pink or. more kids young kids choke on food than are killed by firearms if
