3:30 pm
gaza broke out after two hamas commanders were killed in a watch israeli special forces rate hamas fired hundreds of rockets into israel in response while israeli planes bombed the hundred of sites in gaza over the past few days and now as a military men tell me well why provoke palestinians if it's known in advance that any sort of undercover military action there will end up in heavy response from the militants. i cannot fully explain the palestinian behavior but that threatens the enormously of life of. its citizens on the gaza strip and. compelled the i.d.f. to respond very aggressively to store usually or mainly through air attacks and destroy some sensitive installations of hamas of course it doesn't end the whole story but as of now when we are talking it's
3:31 pm
a much more quiet let's hope it would be remain quiet if it want to remain quiet out not be surprised if the government will order the israeli defense force me to eat even how sure how do which might cause more collateral damage usually modem it's the hamas. escalated actions which of bed i think for both sides so egypt and the united nations have been trying to broker a cease fire between hamas and israel for several months already and just when it seemed to be create upon israel conducted this secret rate in gaza now from the outside it looks like its route is kind of sabotaging this peace process well in your opinion is israel really interesting oh no no no way no no it's just a coincidence this kind of operations quite a bit where when they're needed and. needed full good or crucial security
3:32 pm
needs usually they never come into the public eye the guys know how to do it without being exposed along the way so it's basically something that happened against our wish for sure. but it happened in a moment which was sensitive and poor really helped these two taken out of twenty four forty eight hours before. will cease fire came into existence now israel's defense minister avigdor lieberman has resigned and he called a ceasefire which hamas and israel have eventually signed up to as surrender to hamas terror do you agree. jaromir no i belong to the opposition reserves so i am how slick it is our own government for being. not. not not not for more do is see but more all so full about you towards hamas so i agree that
3:33 pm
basically our government is yielding to hamas under fire it's not a secret that if you're seen to out ahead of promise he decided when to open fire he decided he wanted to stop it and he might decide when do if you meet the government but my criticism is now that about our government that did not order the armed forces to take over gaza because our armed forces can take over gaza strip within several few days but the question of what we ought to we do do after war no one would come to replace us to sit on our bionet and control gaza so we don't have anything to gain from. we can kill in the gaza strip. my complaint and our government that they are not using the for last four years since their last wide open ation in order to make sure that we capable of inserting wage
3:34 pm
between the almost two million palestinians in gaza strip and to some us israel has an interest to weaken hamas israel has an interest to make sure that life normal did enough hours so for electricity enough. enough air quit meant in the in the hospitals the. quality of water is a make the potable water so we don't have an interest in human suffering in gaza and our government some will fail to do it they fail to realize the strategically we have to strengthen abu mazin the p.l.o. in the mullah and to weaken hamas in gaza not the other way around. so labor party has left the coalition government and the jewish home party threatens to follow suit on last its leader naftali bennett gets to see it defense minister could this be the beginning of a and for an attorney on his coalition i mean how could its potential downfall
3:35 pm
affect or impact the peace process. you know in these well we are going to have. to most by next october we have new elections so it's only a may question where the election will take place in whole five months will know all ten or eleven months from now that the whole difference about. the. informal member of the opposition in israel i still really believe in the hope that these events we accept the weight the falling down over his government its replacement by a better government for israel and israelis. so the army wanted the ceasefire but always leave it on the i was allies do not and there were a demonstration is in israel demanding war do you think these are all the public wants another operation you know we have
3:36 pm
a phenomenon that we call in to do is it unfortunately because we had. half a dozen of phones in gaza in the last ten or fifteen you basically everyone is. elated and. clipping the clothing when you enter gaza when you start a major operation but usually afterwards when it becomes clear that the only. result is to bring back. sation under basically the same terms there's a lot of first to ration so what we see now is to eat is a. option of emotions because the government to really abandon for eight months now the people around me you know when when twenty hour visited the. socket of the football matches in. moscow the people around got our
3:37 pm
suffering in never came to. me preferred to to fly to moscow to flee the kind of. mitchell so it's basically the feeling is our first two asian their life are not normal children are growing and the trauma you have always to be within fifteen seconds from function. if not normal life and those are place for it and the government pays the political price of being able to do to shape a consistent structed g.v. the video from us in gaza and the consistent structure doesn't have to do with the shooting actually suit the goal choosing targeted is a matter for the generals the government doesn't shoot it by the government to shape our strategy which and that we can hear from us and strengthening i will move in that what they're failing to do. seventy years ago israel started with
3:38 pm
a handicap surrounded by enemies having to fight to prove its right to exist and now look it's still the same for israel it has normalized its existence and are still not a single friendly neighbor and the arab masses hate you terrorist target you sure you can bomb them all away like you did in sixty seven but does israel have a chance to become an accepted player in the neighborhood not just the toughest and the scariest kid on the block. i'm confident that we can it might take time it do we need patience our nations and our developing. position within the neighborhoods overnight. and we have to bear in mind that you know the way that a person cannot choose parents a nation cannot choose its neighbors though ever but there is enough difference seventy years ago when the u.n. general assembly decided about partition plan making two states in palestine
3:39 pm
a jewish state and our state israel accepted it in spite of the fact that our state was supposed to be three continents are they connected with our building without even a vote to do them and the palestinians rejected didn't try to kill the babies are before we can stand on our feet so we warned against all odds and we are not going to be apologetic about it anymore it's the burden of responsibility for the whole tragedy is on the other side which rejected the white time and once again the proposal from outside i was fifty years later prime minister i proposed to our father to put an end to the the whole conflict through some compromises then he rejected tenderly believing to tell so we do not feel morally responsible but at the same time it's not good to say did nothing to change fifty years ago a day six days of war our most brilliant triumph. the israeli government
3:40 pm
immediately said that except for jules alam we hold the rest of the. occupied territories as a deposit for the go shit in peace the arabs god. and decided that no condition no negotiation no peace for whatever had been taken by force will work big before but since then we have thirty years of peace with the strongest country. in the out of most important out of company e.g. forty years of peace it's not they did peace it's not like the peace between you and i in no way. but it's a piece. even when the muslim brotherhood is on them most who were in power in egypt they didn't do too country we have twenty five years of peace with. the longest border not just my government but these government try to make peace
3:41 pm
even with a sound the fact that i'm not the son and we freed him for fifteen years we have sold their way of being proposed full peace in exchange for basically bowden based on my own sixty seven between us and the palestinian state we've found up and there is out a bleak proposal so we cannot say that nothing can change we cannot say nothing had changed it's true of the diplomacy i'm not here to over the always new enemies good do we send one good and guy then do it later. and we still are not fully quiet but real strong we are fighting and my difference was our own government i own government i believe that israel is so strong willed the strongest country thousand miles all jewels and we can afford considering how to negotiate the peace out of strength and self-confidence we don't have to go so but we have to shane just do
3:42 pm
them out in situation even if it takes time and take certain kind of compromises ok mr barak we're going to take a short break right now and when we have apple continue talking until after the iraq's former prime minister mr al discussing the troubled middle east peace process stay with us. nobody could see coming that false confessions would be that prevalent in the spot laced up wrongful conviction if you look at any interrogation out there what you'll see is threat promise threat promise threat lie a lie a lie the process of interrogation is designed to put people in just that frame of mind make the most comfortable make them want to get out and don't take no for an
3:43 pm
answer and don't accept their denials she said therefore which. sat on a statement that i would be all about it the next day there's a culture on accountability and police officers know that they can engage in misconduct that has nothing to do with all their crime. honoring the one hundredth anniversary of the end of the first world war french president emanuel mccrone claimed patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism this is widely seen as a criticism of donald trump after all trump calls himself a nationalist is nationalism a dirty word says so. i've been saying the numbers mean something they matter the u.s. is over one trillion dollars in debt more than ten white collar crime tempi each
3:44 pm
day. eighty five percent of global wealth you loans to the ultra rich eight point six percent market saw a thirty percent rise last year some with four hundred to five hundred three per second per second and that one rose to twenty thousand dollars. china's building two point one billion dollars a i industrial park but don't let the numbers overwhelm. the only numbers you need to remember is one one does not show. you know for to me the one and only. and we're back with a hood bar out of the former prime minister of israel discussing the prospects of the israeli palestinian peace in the light of the latest escalation on mr barak as
3:45 pm
would already mentioned before israel's relations with its arab neighbors have always been bet most of them still don't recognize a state of israel but lately with see that on yahoo paying gives it to oman first in two decades then this overtures to riyadh is that working can we really talk about israel's normalization with the arab world. you know it's better than what we were in the about and less than what i hoped for you know we basically visited the old man twenty years ago i was twenty two years ago i was a foreign minister of israel under shimon peres and we had to ever do all around the region we met informally with other leaders all around so it's not something new but basically there is some truth in what you have said in the recent three years a good weight common interest to israel the emulate so do it via egypt and jordan
3:46 pm
it is to our corner to put it baby you one ian a jew monica nuclear intentions to struggle to get a against radical muslim terror war and to create a counterweight to the shade manana which stretches form for my tail one to two dumb ass cruised around baghdad damascus be rude so these elements. on the table they should be used and we think to be missing the reason is that it cannot fly to where we cannot or why don't these common interests without being graded to deal seriously with the palestinian issue not because the autocrats in the through night our world have certain sentiments though for the present probably they don't but the people those autocratic leaders in between so you know in the
3:47 pm
gulf they cannot sit face on their own jails if and accept israel publicly as a legitimate member of the family of can't overstate in do isn't in the region if the palestinians and do permanent israeli. control and they need certain change and i think that the. what we can get from the other world from this tonight. is so important that it justifies certain compromises reserving the palestinians in old need in order to enable it to flood so sometimes our government are failing to do it and i think that it could be change former israeli prime minister ehud olmert believe that mahmoud abbas is the only palestinian leader able to bring the two state solution to life but his pasta is actually at loggerheads with hamas official line is to destroy israel in your opinion how big of an obstacle is this fatah hamas confrontation for the israeli
3:48 pm
palestinian peace process can israel reach a peace deal with the west bank palestine and ignore gaza i don't think you can it's no gaza and when we left gaza some oil fields ago eleven years ago no movement wealth. we hope that the police do so the form. then we control the whole area somehow at the moment when do point of view hamas took over and changed the direction but israel has an indoor not in the continuation of the tension is some israelis believe including the government i think that i was really into this is that somehow they will get united and do. but if the needle so is the undue amount on the market because abu mazin with all his. kind of weaknesses is a palestinian leader which prefers call position and living side by side over
3:49 pm
violence and the cannot stop violence and probably doesn't want to stop all violence and who have many complaints about him but nothing to compare with a month a mouse or a move to those with whom there is no hope of even possibility of any negotiation. make them favor for a favor. kind of play along the other side by right wing government though the right wing government talking about putting an end to it they find themselves unable or unwilling to we really try to destroy some us at the same time they focus their efforts on weakening abu mazin and in this league this is why we have been induced to weather with egypt. to strengthen up to mars and to make him the one he cannot come to gaza own israeli bionet but together with the options and others and the americans we can create
3:50 pm
a situation where the palestinian people in gaza might have a second thought whether they should prefer. to mustn't over come up so truong is promising to release an actual mideast peace plan in a couple months but saying how washington has lost the trust of the palestinian side after an opening of the u.s. embassy in jerusalem teasing the united states still can't be relied on for mediation will palestinians in a look at the plan that he is proposing i think that the palestinian over exaggerating the meaning of the american statement i think that the statement should have come seventy seven years ago for twenty five years ago after the congress passed a resolution it was for many reasons delayed by the previous president i don't think that in any way the moving of american embassy to jerusalem exclude the possibility that once the palestinians comes to. mind to strike
3:51 pm
a deal with israel. because we move embassy to the palestinian state to their capital will be if the capital we behave very proud two feet in the suburbs have really populate the suburbs. near jerusalem or in the eastern part of journalism i don't see i don't see any. always into over but you shouldn't meet the do to kill no two have the trump plane being executed successfully is the last of trust between easily leadership and palestinian leadership not a single drop of trust each side whenever something is put on the table to either. repair the blame game both sides assume duty to come to a deadlock and do real game is how to make sure that the other side will be blamed for the for you and the recently the palestinians supposedly lost trust in the american side as honest broker that's
3:52 pm
a. starting point but still because i'm. optimistic in a way i think that we should always look for a way to go over the over twice once again to why do we teach. sation it's better than wall i spent my life fighting i tell you we are ready to fight we are stronger we know how to fight but profoundly we prefer to. relaxation and normalization of the relationship even if there is no power. among the palestinians who is ready and capable of doing it we should probably take certain unilateral steps to start the divorce the separation from the palestinians but do it in a way that will not will not destroy the chances of a palestinian state in the future once they come to do the do the census and try to
3:53 pm
do so let's talk a bit about iran he has said that iran doesn't present any existential threat to israel i agree however at the current israeli government is just obsessed with the threat from iran it's always around this iran that whatnot why is israel so nervous about iran's influence in the middle east. oh a visit we don't like the iranian behavior. don't be misled by by the month you know you are in is a major threat to the stability in the middle east and to israel in the longer term what i've said is that as long as it is a dream and. syrian power and as long as a one year. following the basically the letter of this agreement. it delays the potential threat to israel by years probably a decade probably more it's too early to know we shall never let the iranians
3:54 pm
resume their efforts to become a nuclear power and we should be ready to coordinate we do not say so even independently to block them from. becoming a nuclear military power but having said that i don't think that there is any media existential threat form iran in the in the short and the mid-term level and we have other problems like you know creating these alliance or regional alliance with the moderates tonight to promote the. arrangement with the palestinians to prepare the ground for a separation or divorce for the palestinians to help the situation be that we will have one palestinian pople not all of them and so on so we have a different way always the government is a you know we're very popular least extreme right wing government. will turn nationalists to each. got to fight infection the sense of
3:55 pm
direction and identity form identifying them or form without trait or form within that was the productive so far we tell you movement all along his story at least in the last two hundred years and we saw it in other places we didn't to know well and we still. believe that we are strong enough. we are so strong that we can fold being much will be at least if not to being always really didn't cut off hunted by them or around us so by plato's slow music the demos note played those lives through it. all right listen i just have time for one last question so i'm going to ask you to answer briefly if you can israel hass praising united states for resuming sanctions against iran at the same time tehran has reiterated threats to resume q re naming the reach mint now you have
3:56 pm
said that iran do was bat but until now it prevented iran from developing nuclear weapons is it still better forester out to have some deal in place than no deal at all. those differences between us here you know first of all i don't like to do is milk the only duty so i sold it. on the in was. but once it was signed it became part of the with ality i sold the president prompted other ways to negotiation about splitting toe or developing methods or any other issue which was outrage of the deal and to try to negotiate it but once the sanctions up out of the issue. out of reality it creates certain economic stress was in iran but oh experience make it very little hope that this will destroy all of the. they will find some way to overcome i don't believe that they will break
3:57 pm
out and try to resume full fledged nuclear fallout but some new of enjoyment globally might be found down the street i think that we should be clear we have nothing against the iranian people great people it's only about a tool of and causing tension to develop nuclear weapons and. to eliminate israel from over. we are strong enough we are not afraid but we have to make sure that independently or to get those united states the world community will make sure that iran will never course the line into maybe two nuclear capability and to think that the this is achievable all right mr barak thank you very much for your interview for your insight pleasure talking to you were talking to a hood iraq former israeli prime minister discussing the latest escalation in gaza and whether it's pushing the israeli palestinian peace further away that is it for this edition of set him koala see you next.
3:58 pm
