8:00 pm
to your question ok so talking about the fancy of sat that. you know that the borders of sixty seven should be the deal and that's what the palestinians want but israel will not accept that because they aren't they think that those borders are completely indefensible from a military point of view so that leaves israeli military presence permanent and the west bank at the jordan valley this is a never ending thing that right now i haven't the sixty seven border the border of the final resolution says a disses the clinton palmettos that we all understand the. future agreement if ever achieved will be along these lines but now the specifics because israel will never irrelevant or will never leave those borderlines know that you have to differentiate between the people of palestine who will have their own country with their will and the compatibility to one's own business but from
8:01 pm
security point of view and this is one of the points i say so dull observed the palestinians have to to compromise all that is or security will not be compromised . i didn't say that israel will control the west bank but you mentioned the jordan valley yes the jordan will live we'll have a special. look going to repeat the mistakes that we have done in the withdrawal from. gaza we we left everything. was no idea if any will and the border between gaza and sinai was left open to all of the weapons photo always coming from iran from sudan form libya and this basically violate one of the main principle that the palestinian state will be demilitarized general and taking share rate right now when we're back we'll continue talking to general yadlin former director of israel's mentor intelligence
8:02 pm
and participant of while that discussion cloak the middle eastern conference we're talking about the possibilities are around the palestinian israeli this precious staging. united states is going to reach deep domestic crisis challenge to american supremacy in the north from the outside noise from russia not from china but from the inside those sides missing what you see now on around russia and this hyper
8:03 pm
bill is easing over russian activities is psychological and understandable at times to find somebody outside the united states who is responsible for that while the real problem is inside. look like for many clubs. so i know the guy even so i got. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch. pull the funnel school it's about the passion from the fans it's the age of the superman each of killian erroneous and spending student twenty million a warm fly a. book it's an experience like nothing else on to it because i want to share what i think of what i know about the beautiful game played great so one more chance for . a nice minute.
8:04 pm
we're back with general imus yadlin former head of israel's military intelligence general let's talk settlements and i want to go back a little bit to. what he says the israeli settlements in the west bank are back for peace is this is a signal that israel should be counting on u.s. discriminant support anymore so if you once again you are taking one sentence out of the whole picture it's important sentences but the important sentence that have
8:05 pm
said was that unlike the obama administration he doesn't think the discernment is the obstacle for peace. not a good phenomena you're right he said but first of. the conventional wisdom and the main. allegation against israel in the eighty years of the obama administration and the palestinian while still was. that the settlements is an obstacle for peace. from the center. right not from the extreme left i do agree is that some of the certain rules. of the security fence. hoping for peace at that moment but if. this obstacle will be removed so you have to look at it as a way out but isn't it also a big part of reaching a peace deal because it does seem like there's growing number of settlements there
8:06 pm
dissecting palestinian territory everywhere creating an claims exclave patches that for some it may look like a plan that israel never wants to have an independent fact a palestinian state you know what i mean. i know exactly what you mean and this is another myth because if you look where is the main places that israel is building it's not in the. settlements east of the security fence it's in jerusalem in the jewish neighborhood of jerusalem it's in the blocks and this is basically a palestinian propaganda that unfortunately is boat by a lot of people in new york. how sustainable from economic point of view is this whole situation for israel because i know that. the support inside israel for all of this isn't unanimous for settlements israel is a democracy and we have the right we have the left the right is for settlement the
8:07 pm
left is against at the moment the center basically distinguish between. the blocks and the rest of the settlement so there is an argument in israel and i can see. most of the. two state solution. to head off the think tanks are doing. it every year and there are still sixty percent to choose to be sixty seven that the two state solution and if. will be put forward by the u.s. by russia by the cult that and the palestinians will agree for the settlement will not be an obstacle for peace do you think there is it was not in gaza in two thousand and five do you think that the annex a shunt i mix and annexing the settlement could be a possibility i'm asking this because i know that netanyahu always emphasizes on the fact that. any peace there would actually include settlements closer to israel
8:08 pm
proper perhaps living. once again the blocks. the five six percent that the blocks are built upon will be part of his or this is agreed once again not only in these will be sent. what olmert gave and unfortunately have been to. a swap ok we take five six percent you will get. part of his will to be part of palestine to to keep their one hundred percent of the sixty seven partition as does right. balance but the palestinians still if used so these are. not going to evacuate of a million people from the settlement. the numbers that we are talking about in
8:09 pm
these already center sixty seventy eighty eight thousand and then snot going to be easy i want to ask you about another thing that netanyahu. says any peace deal with palestine will include israel's security control over the west bank. and you know the palestinians are calling the i.d.f. presence in the west bank an occupation how would that work out i told you that security will not be compromised and many methods to make security. let's call it. the configuration should be as low as possible. and. the head of institute general john allen had a team. on that in two thousand and fourteen to make these feel secure on
8:10 pm
one hand. don't you million eight. make the palestinians fields are not controlling their own country once again let me remind you that the palestinians never answer to. and president obama in two thousand and fourteen and prime minister netanyahu will basically accept the firm will even is always somewhat of a shoot. i want to talk international law point of view and know that you have a friendly president in america but when it comes to things like building the barrier along the grand line building settlements even claiming all of jerusalem that goes against international law that's the general knowledge major things right now it's not relevant for israel israel doesn't really care it does what it sees fit but do you think eventually it could you know catch up with it israel the whole
8:11 pm
legal pressure. international community there's a lot of interpretations to the international law and you're taking one interpretation we are we have another interpretation you know nobody ever. states there was no palestinian state until sixty seven nobody recognizes the occupation of jerusalem by jordan only two countries pakistan and do you kid. so what used to be the british mind that. there's many an interpretation of international law. and i think the principles that everybody accepts this even foreign minister today say that diffusion or all the power of these will be decided in the shoots and unfortunately the palestinians are
8:12 pm
unwilling to come to negotiations because they know that they have to do some concessions. you're talking about the recognition of a palestinian state slovenia's nursing the idea of recognizing the state of palestine sweden did an ireland belgium some other e.u. states are thinking following this lead israel yes strongly opposed to that i don't really understand what's wrong with it i mean from one hand israel says it supports two state solution. palestinians were promised their state what's wrong with recognizing the state of palestine. it's. workable as palestinian state. borders. of the palestinian refugee. demands of the palestinians. the palestinian state should be.
8:13 pm
the consequences a result. the two state solution is not happening so far let's face it ok so one state solution isn't what israel wants because you don't want to absorb two point five million palestinians into like seven million israelis no one wants that so what kind of options are left for israel. show you the option. the option is to try again to reach an agreement if this is impossible to which original agreement that the our joining and they can put some value on the table so they can put and i don't logical value a financial value even a security of it by offering the palestinians something and offering these words something and pushing two sides to couture to make concessions if this is not working i'm
8:14 pm
a commanding israeli independent more supported by the us and ups which say the palestinians are so extreme they so don't want to do any compromise let's do half way interim agreement that will keep the two state solution alive even if we cannot reach it today and terms recognition of your original i'm as is your ass capital g. i feel like it's helping the israeli palestinian process or the contrary i don't think that it's. it's disturbing as the palestinians are claiming if you listen very very carefully to. the basis of. the reality that i recognize the fact. is the capital of israel and jerusalem when you hear is voice the coordinates of places in jerusalem so to mention you say the
8:15 pm
knesset the parliament is in jerusalem the prime minister's office enjoy the supreme court court is in the jaws of all of them in west jordan if i were a palestinian i wouldn't birth his speech so you know all the places selling us dollars a lot trumps in the same speech the future borders would be decided in the gushy ocean between israel and palestine he said the status quo on their karma sheriff is not going to change. this is basically can play to the palestinians. have made such a big deal out of it let me tell you les had quit because i knew was that the plane is coming and again are going to be losing the blame game again going to refuse to another player after kerry after clinton after all sorts a preempt so a preempt on jaws or limb thinkings or jerusalem is is
8:16 pm
a case of we'll get a lot of support to our board in the muslim war and here's another supports more stuff to ward is now war about syria a boat libya a boat to yemen abode. for germany in the middle east zone not much interest in the palestinians anymore. just last question to hurt the palestinian former palestinian foreign minister it's sad that this was kind of a last drop for the palestinian by trump to recognize. capital one is that this could actually provoke another intifada. uprising force we are two months with a month since the. you remember the predictions the dictions well for ward was free to all the middle east in fire tell all over american embassies will be borne nonsense nonsense i hold two weeks before the declaration when they discuss
8:17 pm
it this is an empty gun and empty gun and they cannot threaten us with this by the way the palestinians should look at themselves because who started the argument on joselo they went to do in their school. in unbelievable out of context to the story argument that the jews have no connection to jordan. thousand years we are there we build the city the palestinians suddenly say that israel has no connection to jordan and if they come was disowned i don't blame to amp to telling them the tools. thank you very much for the century and all the best of luck. in.
8:18 pm
you mean you don't. see the. two are. not true only ten space. left alone kelly said. claiming to know seventh is that a. few speak french. don't mess up syria our security interests that's russian security interest ok not
8:19 pm
just a thought we want a stable syria and we want a stable lebanon and you can't just send in planes every week to bomb the country and disrupt the political process in this way it's unacceptable.
8:20 pm
headline stories this hour the un's most powerful hers for another round of crisis talks on syria's rebel held. uses the international community. also ahead in the program. don't do it don't do it don't do it and we did the right thing donald trump reinforces his commitment to move the u.s. embassy in israel to jerusalem the date. condemnation from across the. russian lawmakers consider tougher penalties for child sex abuse. from an orphanage.
8:21 pm
run the clock across the world this is our to international from the team and myself you know welcome to the program the next round of the scotians on the situation in syria. at the u.n. security council is expected to get underway later on friday member states are to consider a resolution on a cease fire in the region along with amendments that russia forward the first. day of talks moscow under muskets slammed by other security council members this dramatic targeting of civilians in sheer disregard for human life the tax against health care and hospitals constitute war crimes the regime wants to keep bombing and gassing these four hundred thousand people and the assad regime is counting on russia to make sure the security council is unable to stop their suffering. there is a massive psychoses in the mainstream media which is spread in the same room as day
8:22 pm
after day it doesn't help to understand the situation that saw they put forward the idea that their only hospitals in eastern guta which the syrian army are fighting against or hear about in no takes a look at what we can expect from those second round of talks. well at this point russia is putting forward amendments to the proposed resolution that would call for a thirty day cease fire now the talk on everyone's mind is eastern ghouta now this is a suburb of damascus located to the east of the syrian capital and at this point there is a lot of fighting going on in that city and there's been a lot of reports in the press about civilian casualties and ongoing suffering and we've gotten a response from russia insisting that the situation in ghouta is quite complex we have terrorists there they're essentially using civilians as human shields furthermore that area eastern ghouta is being essentially used as an area from
8:23 pm
which to shell damascus and to attack damascus so a lot more complicated than the western leaders are making it out to be. and information war is now spreading in all spheres of life and western pontin's amount over reacting to all the emotions found amount within the u.n. security council will be trying to adopt a resolution establishing a cease fire for thirty days but where are the going to use because you have to show in populated areas there are no such going to use that's wanted to make this resolution effective we propose a framework which would make the ceasefire more realistic. now the leaders of france and germany have coauthored a letter directed at russia urging them to vote for this resolution for a thirty day cease fire russia has been very critical of this resolution so at this point it's not exactly clear what's going to happen in the security council chamber
8:24 pm
but many folks are anticipating a rather intense meeting. more than three hundred civilians have been killed in syria since the earth strikes intensified on eastern ghouta according to the united nations the organization secretary general has described the situation there as hell on earth the assad government for its part say say it's trying to bring an end to rebel shelling attacks that have been killing civilians in damascus. three people were killed and fifteen injured in the latest assault on the syrian capital on friday rush to give looks now at the fighters controlling eastern city actually are. east ghouta is not a nice place to live in surrounded as it is under. constant war zone within and without.
8:25 pm
the army of islam holds most of east ghouta as the name may imply these guys crusading for democracy and when they aren't busy killing each other they share power with nusra. in syria and the number of smaller groups. these are ruthless people in a cage civilians literally put woman and the elderly in metal cages and hoisted them onto roofs where they left them a literal human shield made of civilians to protect themselves their fighters from strikes these same people jihad ists who say they're fighting to free the country from outside then turn their guns on protesters when they day complain about the
8:26 pm
jihad ists themselves. this infamous incident being one of them a crowd of demonstrators fired upon by rebel fighters john kerry himself once called the rebels holding east ghouta a subgroup of isis and i. remember what the u.s. led coalition did to isis in mosul. what are they leveled and then ties city thousands of civilians dead yet they say there's no choice the terrorists were sponsible by using human shields a sad fact of war two billion casualties are a fact of life in this sort of situation do you agree that some of the the high
8:27 pm
level of i think ridiculous standard that we had previously is now created this. behavior by isis that they now realize if they take human shields they're going to avoid being struck and that actually this is adding to the problem congresswoman i do believe they understand our sensitivity to civilian casualties and they are exploiting that and i do agree that as we move into these urban environments it is in become more and more difficult to apply extraordinarily high standards for the things we're doing although we will try for some reason this time around they seem to be avoiding any mention of who it is that controls east ghouta all but the same job that's when these limits blindly shell damascus every day and slaughter more and more civilians well that's war when the syrian army responds suddenly it's an atrocity remarkable isn't it how the rules change entirely depending on who's calling the shots. right guess the ever porting was john white author and political
8:28 pm
commentator sees the more western powers refused to treat militants including terrorists the longer the civilians there will suffer regime change propaganda. entered the realms of the fantastic queered in groups such as nusra front and jash islam which is the dominant faction in eastern guta these groups which are here to the same ideology responsible for nine eleven and a whole litany of terrorist attacks there are no being depicted those rebels as partisans of second world war repute who are by the syrian army made up of conscript soldiers drawn from every part of the multicultural and multi-religious was a city in society there are no being p.t. there's a lot of the waffen s.s. an army of occupation the than an army of liberation so this narrative will continue city of comes closer to achieving its complete liberation and the suffering of civilians which no one can deny is being prolonged by this continued
