jerusalem and across the west bank are on file hamas has warned transposition has opened the gates of how locals and u.s. missions across the region a bracing themselves for violence all of this need not have happened there was no real need for drama to come up with this declaration which perhaps himself does not even understand the meaning of during biblical times we had two different kingdoms and israel was in good which is no longer with us apparently he did it out of some political and egotistical. motives which israel and the palestinians are going to pay the. as for the ninth of december two thousand and seventeen marks thirty years since the start of the first intifada are we now back to square one.
1:12 pm
r.t. . the quest to prove donald trump colluded with russia shows no sign of letting up c.n.n. recently aired a story that donald trump jr had been centered directly linked to wiki leaks documents on the democratic national committee before they were made public it was september fourth two thousand and sixteen at the height of the campaign that's when candidate donald trump his son donald trump jr and even trump junior's personal assistant they got an e-mail with a decryption key and a web site address for hacked wiki leaks documents the documents were made public on september thirteenth wiki leaks twitter feed c.n.n. claimed that the e-mail was sent on september fourth but that later turned out to be false the e-mail was actually sent to trump jr on september fourteenth as the day after the data went public he later tweeted a response to the full c.n.n. story i know that you can't help but spread freaky news c.n.n.
1:13 pm
but now that you know the truth you should have the decency to retract the full story make the correction take down the b.s. tweet and apologize to the two or three people that still believe you to be credible you all welcome the u.s. president also slammed the story those behind it of gross incompetence while wiki leaks founder julian assange called for somebody to be fired for that work later run a correction giving quote the proper context for the timing of the e-mail independent journalist martin summers believes that c.n.n. run the story without fact checking simply to cause scandal. but don't forget there's a kind of relationship between mainstream media like c.n.n. and what you might call operatives of the state where they brief people to give them stories and then they just repeat what they're told by these essentially anonymous state sources and they don't bother to check because they can't check and to some extent they like that situation because they've got inside information and
1:14 pm
they feel privileged but of course they can be manipulated and they can just get it wrong as they seem to have done in this case i think the real issue for journalists is you've got to stick to the facts opinion is free but facts are sacred and in this case of course they got the date of the wiki leaks concept wrong which completely changed the context of the story it wasn't that wiki leaks has been contacted before the election and trying to been a straight people have been given inside knowledge that they just got the same information the same times every body else and c.n.n. jumped on the matter that in order to try and create a scandal as it were and it's backfired for them. the efforts to undermine trump's presidency haven't stopped their reports in the u.s. media citing an anonymous source say that russia's equivalent of facebook got in touch with trump and it's claimed that the v. k. social network offered to promote trump's candidacy among russian speaking americans during the election jacqueline bouvier goes deeper into the story. no

1:16 pm
like they did to a bunch of other popular people we welcomed international celebrities joining our social network we invited donald trump to create a v.k. account like many other celebrities but the media all but push those facts of the side choosing instead to focus on the young the exact himself one outlet said they became manager represented a new point of direct contact between an influential russian and advisors to trump not really sure if influential is the way to classify this guy however. the media are also pointing out that the v. k. executive has taken photos of trump and at a separate event snapped one with president putin well apparently that didn't impress the trump team they didn't reply to the network's request. the reply from donald trump's representatives they are story nothing.

standing military engagement in the region is even helpful so hail armaan also slammed washington's track record on promoting democracy abroad. no outside power can engineer a democracy inside a country nor is democracy the solution to every problem examples in iraq and libya are in front of us after the fall of gadhafi and saddam what happened in this country is did they get democracy it is syria currently and of course yemen afghanistan iraq all of these countries they have lost the stability and they are in serious problems in fact at the moment there are some scribes in the new york press in the washington press who are predicting that if pakistan doesn't go the line of the united states of america if syria like situation may be created over here because pakistan cannot allow its territory to be used by others to
