5:14 pm
expect this surge to last with many predicting actual g.d.p. growth to settle to about three percent this year that is because second quarter numbers were boosted by foreign purchases of u.s. soybeans and other products before a trade war raises tariffs on them but i think the growth number today four point one percent in the second quarter is good news but it's very temporary there are two important to the second quarter growth number one is that they were propelled in large part by a sharp increase in government spending coming off the increase of the budget deficit for earlier this year the tax cuts the second is a sharp spike in exports as traders accelerated shipments to get in ahead of the risk of higher trade barriers coming off the threat of trade wars but president trump says his actions who helped cut the u.s. trade deficit by fifty billion dollars these tax cuts specifically on the business

i'll be back with more news feed in a little over twenty five minutes here on out is the era of the walls of shame next . with bureaus spanning six continents across the globe. al-jazeera as correspondents live and bring the stories they tell of this was not good news. and that's the stance. we're at the mercy of the russian camp for palestinian al-jazeera fluent in world news. in two thousand and two the israeli palestinian conflict was further inflame as a contentious supporter was cast in concrete. the following film first aired five years after construction began on what it's about describes as a separation wall. friday
5:22 pm
afternoon in the west bank village of bela een and another demonstration against the israeli government that will take over half of the villages land. on our economy. is one of the old girl you are. not going to fear in the. full knowledge of all that it matters little what the cold weather walls barriers or fences the intention is the same to redefine human relations into us their market. this is a story about division about the barriers that many raked in calculation or desperation
5:23 pm
to separate themselves from abos for robbers from them. in diplomacy and conciliation fail this is the alternative. was living in. i call it a wall of shame because a hundred and thousands of palestinians are without jobs because of the. alps freedom of movement because of the world without means. and israel is. refusing to see the population of israel. there is nothing new about so-called protective wall most ancient cities have them
5:24 pm
the ones we see today around jerusalem date from the sixteenth century. but the twenty first century wars not only look different they serve a different purpose. the war is just over seven hundred kilometers long so far it's costing two million dollars every kilometer. it began in two thousand and two and it goes deep into palestinian territory in the west bank and jerusalem splitting neighbors and in circling villages. it's the biggest construction project in israel. and one that its supporters claim is necessary to ensure israel's security. this is for security reasons this fence is for blocking the way of suicide bombers into
5:25 pm
israel. and yet plans for the division of israel and palestine predate the relatively modern phenomenon of suicide attacks. the plans were decades in the making. while the wall really follows out of israeli policies for the last hundred years even before there was an israel essentially the problem is that zionism has claimed this country from the mediterranean to the jordan river exclusively for the jews there is no other people here for the for the israeli jews there is no it palestinians there is no other collectivity with other rights to this country this is our country exclusively period. the names of professor saw for the next prime minister sharon come up repeatedly in any discussion of the war. is the ideologues who first drew the maps for a construction of
5:26 pm
a wall in the one nine hundred eighty s. but it was the politician sharon who put the reality on the ground. the day he was elected second time with prime minister this very important evening he called me to bring him next day my met. with michael bowed to disengage from it not to sit with him but to give him his because my name was that he and if you ask me how i did the map i would say ninety bills in big book in my consideration demography to three percent holy sites and maybe seven a percentage only secure with my vision was that if we would like to keep as a huge democratic state we cannot enjoy the luxury of having all of
5:27 pm
palestine very slowly because the mogul field is the most deterministic fact thought. at the moment. as the main political force. high in the erection of the wall fell to israeli prime minister sharon to allay the fears of israel's backers good fences make good neighbors he told us president george w. bush astutely quoting american poet robert frost. good words can make. goes all over the world see the war between me and my. friends. but palestinians and israelis have never been good labors and the war is a physical reminder of the end tip of the on both sides. and even the very name of this divide is a contentious issue israel's official name for the wall is separation barrier to
5:28 pm
some it is a while to others it is a fence. only three percent of the barrier is wall ninety seven percent is fans everybody wants to show in television the wall but you have to remember that this well is it is against should think it's only in places where people live very close to the fence and they can shoot through then you had to put it there was ninety seven percent is just transparent fence. but though a fence may have less visual impact it takes up more ground. it's true that the majority of the structure is not like this the majority of the structure is electronic firms but only one component there is patrol roads that detection. trenches. razor wire it's a very wide expanse. this is why the israeli authorities use the term fence but in fact. part of the wall to me is actually. what you
5:29 pm
see here. the footprint is much wider you have a fifty or sixty or seventy meters play. buffer zone and in terms of the damage it does to be environment in terms of all of trees uprooted irrigation systems cause it's extreme much worse than the wall part here and in many cases the israelis have taken land that has been passed down through generations of palestinian families. spend all his life. but the arrival of the wall has brought disaster. relief. at the. moment is a hit it is it. is that the will of the children is at the whim of the. nasser that the world will meet and with the destruction of the olive trees comes economic ruin as palestinians are left on able to work because they are forced to
5:30 pm
spend so long negotiating the divide. the bloody about. what i have been killed with. bated. breath. in. a year with a look probably with the. blood but is it a little too. but it is an official's little. visit the one in the hand. this was that. if. there is a particularly. with somebody of a novel it is. because of it but it. will be in
5:31 pm
the news about how. it is driving people to despair because the younger generation have no there's no future livelihood for peace but it is their agriculture. villages if they're in a situation where only about two hundred people or three hundred people out of a population of ten thousand for example somebody says we've been to bernie two or three hundred people can get regularly to their land obviously you can't call this an agricultural village anymore. to your daughter did you did you need to show he doing on the. bus a lot of this sort of get out there is done a. lot of the. community but being. a lot of the. many jewish. must over funny. on the minute we have a lot of work to them still to understand we've got about one hundred. blood work on been done to do what i need you to do and do you really difficult and you've
5:32 pm
died not on your model will be a bad model of going up to. a corner and then i mean i don't know mum and dad are you. know. the model t. would i do. this job now if you do you know it's pretty neat i know occupational but i don't want to know your model to weed out your genuine pinnacle saddam and all but one of them is out of a tough one which doesn't know how to. for as long as palestinians suffer economic hardship it's argued that there will never be peace. equality in the excess but in the course if the palestinians will live what israel is in the legal terms infrastructure for statehood legal system. education and welfare and their own bad states and the only border will see is only part two feet it's what's inside the border if there will be equality two states
5:33 pm
equal to the family of nations and not one occupying. this would make for good neighbors but good neighbor or whole days not necessarily love. and yet it is argued that the wall exists to protect the economy or at least the israeli economy. form two thousand and one until two thousand employee is lost almost. four percent for its g.d.p. . in those years i mean no one goes to see even a movie and no one. was there. because the security situation. and according to the walls architect the security of the israeli people comes first you see your stuff. and you give me
5:34 pm
a clear picture a very miserable picture about people who suffer from the war.
