pretoria to sever ties with russia and china. instead, south africa's top diplomat raises concerns that those who are using the countries natural resources are d, stabilizing the region. this fear that we exist under some push is i think, a totally a rear, unfounded. a belief in the relationship that we have with eva country is also a concern about countries that have mineral interest in african countries are not there as a destabilizing force. so i think we need to look at the foot thorough of problems that give rise to insecurity, bad governance, and the absence of democracy on the african continent. it's not a one country problem that has anthony blanc and travel super doria with a speech on new policies for african countries. while washington seeks to contain

family. she coinciding with the visit, the white house released as a document detailing it's new strategy towards sub saharan regents. the plan promotes us involvement in african nations policies, including issues such as pandemic, climate change, and food and security, and while blank and says the u. s. won't tell africa how to behave. it also shows washington, not happy with the continence ties with russia and china. the people's republic of china by contrast, sees the region as an important arena to challenge the rules based international order. and we can us relations with african peoples and governments. russia use the region as a permissive environment for paras, stables, and private military companies, often fermenting instability for strategic and financial benefit. u. s. accusations, however, don't prevent deepening ties as china is now south africa's biggest trading partner . moscow trade with the country is also on the rise with monthly exports from
4:05 am
russia. this january growing more than 4 times compared to january of last year. and while the u. s. is still trying to convince the reason that russia and china are the root of all troubles. the african public seems to find more faith and ties with bricks. countries than with the west. america has been playing with us for a long time. it's now time for, for bricks to grow. i think more african countries encouraged to be better off the brakes. and you can see that you feel of machines, africa, i'm sure he's also spinoffs. real mom joining that club. you have such developed countries, mo, like your, your child, i show region good assist other countries in terms of having to achieve the same living off in foster child economy the in, at this point in time in its new strategy. washington also sites a long and proud history of supporting africa. however, jo altman, host of the conservative daily podcast says it's the us who holds responsibility
4:06 am
for destabilizing the continent. i don't think the u. s. has ever is typed into sovereignty of other nations. and when they talk about the stabilization, they can look no further than themselves. and the sad part about with the u. s. says and it's just a bunch of rhetoric and look, i'm, i'm an american and i'm proud to be an american, but the apparatus within the us government has long been a d, stabilizing force and almost putting at, you know, african a place where they can't grow, they can't excel at the same rate that other countries across the world are growing and that has a lot more to do with their natural resources and how they can get access to those resources. so no, i don't believe they respect the sovereignty of any decisions that they make. and i and i, i'm actually fearful that it's going to become a tug of war and the people of those african natives. 54 nations are the ones that are going to suffer, and the african nation, especially south africa, does not trust the united states. many nations don't trust united states. i don't think anything united states does right now will be seen as anything other than

a grand standing and making empty promises that they will mir and in the future not be able to deliver. we're committed now to gaza. we're at least 44 people have been killed and hundreds of wounded after 3 days of israeli bombing airstrikes have rabbits, residential neighborhoods and civilian infrastructure. here, some of the latest footage from the same. mm hm. a fragile sea star between israel and the palestinian islamic jihad militant burg, purportedly held through monday as hospitals in gaza. struggle to treat the many civilians in your during the weekend of hostilities. palestinian officials say some
4:08 am
650 buildings were damaged before a truce came into effect on sunday. at the height of the tensions palestinian militants and israeli armed forces, exchange rocket barrages and airstrikes. as garza again rios from devastation, the un security council has held an emergency meeting to discuss that and situation on the ground. the events saw the palestinian observer call for more global attention to the humanitarian situation and gaza. while israel gained support from washington, after it accused the palestinian islamic jihad group of targeting civilians, there is no room for falls narratives. the fact are clear. the palestinian islamic jihad deliberately fired 1100 rockets at these railey civilians . with the roughly $200.00 landing inside the gaza strip, killing innocent palestinians, and among them young children, this is not an assessment. this is the hard truth. and israel has all the proof.
4:09 am
we fully support israel's right to defend his people against terrorist threats, including from rocket fire, aimed at civilians or without regard to them. and while the u. s. ambassador to the un justifies israel's bombing of gaza, self defense artes. rachel blevins, investigate the accusations of double standards when it comes to western officials, as views on conflicts in other countries. 3 days of clashes between israel and the palestinian militant group included a number of what israel called preemptive air strikes on gaza. which left at least 40 for palestinians, dead including 15 children and more than $300.00 wounded. yet despite the photos and videos that were shared across social media, which showed israel clearly targeting heavily populated residential areas, there was virtually no outrage from the west. in fact,
4:10 am
president by that has praise the money the u. s. been on the iron dome system and says that it saved countless lives in israel, and he is not the only one turning a blind eye to the collateral damage in gaza. we absolutely fully support israel's right to defend itself against terrorist groups that are taking the lives of innocent civilians in israel. the u. k. stands by israel and it's right to defend itself. we condemn terrorist groups firing it civilians and violence which has resulted in casualties on both sides. we call for a swift end to the violence. france condemns the firing of rockets into his railey territory and reiterates its unconditional commitment to the security of israel. the focus was mainly on israel's right to defend itself with no questions asked as to why dozens of palestinian civilians were being killed while the israeli death toll remains at 0. it's clearly a very different approach than the one western leaders have taken in recent months . where they mourned every ukrainian casualty that was reported and used to condemn
4:11 am
what they called the russian brutality. the u. k. stands united in condemning rushes reprehensible behavior. there were no shades of gray in this conflict. it is about right and wrong. we can't become numb to this. we can't normalize this. this is the reality. what's going on every single day, as long as russia's brutality against ukraine continues. that's why these to come to an end on the show and do international justice must prevail. those who committed these crimes will have to answer for them. and speaking of concern over civilians being killed, those western officials were nowhere to be found when ukraine and it's all turn nationalist killed. thousands and don bass over the last 8 years. not only are the tears reserved for certain cases, but so is the selective terminology west tends to use in their eyes, ukrainians, or heroes, whoever, right, to force their will over regions that have declared their independence. but it's
4:12 am
the palestinians who are labeled as terrorists, even as some of them live under an internationally recognized israeli occupation. and the have blogger see is plain to see as headlines that praised ukrainian defenders now condemned palestinian militants. and that's not the only double standard. the west seems to have. president biden spoke out on sunday saying he welcome the news of a cease fire in gaza while refusing to condemn his is reli allies for the killing of civilians. however, the u. s. continues to refuse to encourage ukraine to negotiate a truce with russia. in fact, to anyone who dares to try and do so. 6 has been met with allegations that they must be pro russian if they are advocating for peace and ukraine. that includes former u. k. labor party leader, jeremy corbett. boring homes in isn't going to bring about a solution. it's only going to prolong and exaggerate this will or if i disappointing is that a hobby,
4:13 am
any of the world's leaders use the word piece and he is not the only one. former german chancellor, gerard schroeder, hungarian, president, victor, oregon. and even henry kissinger have made similar statements, and they have all been accused of being kremlin apologise, and that ukraine appears to be the only place where the west is not allowed to mention peace. and yes, that's including the conflict between kosovo in serbia, where the e was quick to set up talks or the taiwan strait, where the g 7 immediately called for stability in response to rising tensions between beijing and washington instead of urging for peace, ukraine gets even more war as the binding ministration has approved another $1000000000.00 and lethal aid, which is notably one of its largest packages so far and a parent reminder that nations are only allowed to defend themselves when the u. s . as they can, just as they are only allowed to pursue peace with their neighbor. if washington is
4:14 am
on board with the plan. same with the palestinian israeli conflict. israel's border police have responded to a claim that an idea of soldier fired at an r t film crew. this is partial footage that does not show the event in its entirety . there were crowds of protesters rallying, throwing stones and bottles at police workers and trying to enter the israeli territory. the forces on the ground fired to disperse the crowds and repel the attacks. and contrary to what has been claimed, no shots were fired at media cruise. when i get fishy out there and noticeable concerns on the part of the israeli army, that there will be a response. oh oh. the military's firing right, dos. melissa, however, you can see from footage from the live broadcast that was shot. yup. that was fired at the r t correspondent, an journalist from other channels as the arctic camera men filmed israeli forces
4:15 am
moving towards house indian protesters on the border with israel. the crew dive for cover, and fortunately nobody was hurt. targeted r t journalists, yahveh, sty t has share. what happened? oh, wow, i'm not home, but the condiment. oh yeah. when we were in air and israeli military vehicle drove up from a side street, there were 2 streets between us and the side of the clashes. and military car drove up and stopped right in front of us. we were a few meters away from this military vehicle. and when the camera and started filming this car approached us, and one of the soldiers turned and pointed his rifle at us. this forced us to leave the cameras and run to what's erica. we stayed in the car on the shooting of tear gas grenades began our camera, men came back to pick up the camera. he shouted, the soldier. i'm a journalist. nevertheless, the use of tear gas grenades continued. we got back into the car again, wouldn't leave it until the presenter saw the army leaving the street said that
4:16 am
they had gone. we returned to pick up our equipment. after that we left. in fact, it struck us to some extent because we were standing at this place before the arrival of the army, the army source. there we were wearing clothes as clearly marked with press. when the cameraman saw that a soldier had begun to raise to rifle, he changed the direction to camera was pointing, making it clear to the soldier that he wouldn't film. and there was no need to shoot or use tear gas grenades and so on. in fact, it shocked us, and it was scary. it was very scary to see these events. in the end, we were able to leave the place without harm to anyone from our group. lemme yet. meanwhile, in africa, all eyes are on the canyon elections were poles have opened as voters, and one of the continents largest economies choose a new president to bring a highly contessa grace to the close policy, clear reports from the ground. i met holdings, patient in kenya,
4:17 am
around 22000000 people are eligible to vote in these elections with the issues caption, uncover, t, unemployment and corruption. the main reason as to why that when they say, what do they make? sure, one, they call them to test the speedy for, you know, accounting. secondly, we have one for these a, let's you him to have in mind that a pretty id when we are lacking that our country has been affected vastly by this a drug called corruption. corruption is what us kill to this country because you see we have a laurel view. my, i lot of natural resources in this country, but because the of it corruption antibodies, a slam where more than a 1000000 people survive on a dollar a day election posters. it's promising change every way that many posters complain . it's the usual emptied promises from those vying for the top office. so who are
4:18 am
the main faces in this race? after we submit and nicoli, the latest figures give rayleigh, i think the leader of the opposition a clear lead. this is his good for the presidency, and he's supported by the house going to place it in, or who kenyatta. opposing him is william wooten, who appeals to the masses of frustrated young people. most of him clerk who just want to get ahead. he trades on his rags to which the stories that he once sold chickens on the side of the road, and is to day one of the wealthiest men in the country. but it's not going to be as easy for the new president to solve the issues. now robi, for example, is the largest and most important financial business and financial patient had in east africa with most of the trade east. and for western countries. who had, he remarked, kenya, not only as a vice hope, pleading partner, but also
4:19 am
a sort of stability in a volatile region. the race comes, i've been anxious time with the conflict in ukraine pandemic. the was the drought, kenya has faith in the waste looking in the background, we will see how the new president deals with all this on his shoulders. policy a r t. now robi kenya. a veteran canyon journalist who has covered the country's election for years can both be re says there is much at stake in the ongoing vote. this election is important because it comes up with all aspects to the so surely and only complete for life being tested. one of the issues that comes strongly is the issue of the economy, the really bad, the cost of living is high people looking up to the new government plan $60.00 and to the point where it's being reduced to our basic food being too much,
4:20 am
then people are up for the basic food and to that is the issue of governance out of this governance used to have what's called corruption, something that has been leaving this country for years, didn't it wasting resources and cause a lot of frustration, a lot of government, public rece, the end up in people's private pocket. so this is a big issue. so how do we, the thing is, who is going to be fixing the economy? fresh footage, apparently showing calves troops dropping a bomb on russian soldiers is spreading on pro ukrainian social media coats. a warning you might find the following images distressing. the unverified video appears to show the group moving in to retrieve what appears to be a body from the battlefield. a bomb is then dropped directly onto them from a drone. the soldiers are seen scattering from the effects of the blasts, and it's not clear if any of them are killed, finish journalists, news, put coven,
4:21 am
who reports from the don best hole. does that such military actions are aimed at provoking a tough response from russia? no, unfortunately. okay, just continue and what we see here and what we have witnessed for 8 years, a series of publications against the russian population. and of course, these kind of events, they are new for russians, but they are not the new year for us, for people who don't list and where we are. we have faith, all kinds of provocation, but this video was absolutely brutal, absolutely discussing. and of course, the game all was all moral and ethics. what can be, what we see here, what we have weakness here from the february that the, the russia is doing a very careful sticks rary. oh, lee, me that opperation with limited goals and the other side is waiting a total war against russian population in russian communities. what they want is
4:22 am
that the roches or the don't with troops will re page such kind of trust and, and that is what they all weight so that they can turn everything again upside down . meanwhile, ukrainian trips continue to intensively shall the dying at people's republic civil infrastructure. a recent video showing a furniture factory engulfed in flames following the attacks. according to local authorities, ukraine fire nearly 400 shells on monday, leaving 4 people dead and 14 others wounded. on the don yes, front lines as russian led forces advanced towards the central city of oakland. are in the republic, our teeth collette algebra reports from their firing positions. holly ann with his i have thought that we are now traveling in the direction of oglethorpe. this grad missile defense system is ready to hit ukrainian positions in this direction. after

4:27 am
hm. welcome back to will the part of it and frame in our president of the jerusalem institute for strategic studies. professor in bar, one of the proposed gold rush and military operation in ukraine. he's the so called to see cation and i have to say that when i 1st heard this term, it sounded very odd and artificial. i think it was the russian speakers a couple of weeks to even learn how to pronounce it without stumbling. having said that, you thing now says in all fashion has ever been a problem in modern day ukraine. a modern day. remember who i did was that was the nazi, but i do,
4:28 am
i do not know enough about the, you know, the politics. so claim today to be able to respond to that. i must say that, you know, this sentences sounds very strange to what the western is and even here and it's where we have, you know, a population a, i think a, you know, if i would have to advise mr. put in, i would advise him to use a different sentence to justify his the will. now can i brought in this out towards the issue on now says because i think the ip address on on 2 pillars. one is this idea of exceptional or secret nature of any given. and the 2nd i thing is the, this issue on the, on the end of history that history has some predetermined more, as we know,
4:29 am
people are, was trying to bring that about. is that a concept that is seeing reliable, not only let's say in your brain, but also more broadly movies that you consider most of the chosen people. so, and nobody, you know, seeing that this is any of those, not this but you know, many nationalities things out. and so this is a list. and again, i think that this choice of who owns it or not is the best one. you mentioned the just consider themselves the chosen people that you are not trying to impose your way of life. in fact, you are quite restrictive about who can join your, your people's rules about that. but when we look,
4:30 am
let's say in the american constitution, they not only define themselves as exceptional, but also see themselves as a, the ultimate judge, almost the replacement of god. i wonder if this russian american rivalry over the years is partially spiritually based over whether one country can be the ultimate just what, what is good and what is evil in international affairs? no, i refrain from making normative judgments, but i know every church believes it and it has a direct line to, to god and a christian it though. so america it, which is actually becoming less and less so it is not.
