7:03 pm
for more violence in the coming days and is deploying additional troops to the west bank but many fear that the situation could escalate as the islamic militant group hamas its followers to start an uprising a first intifada against israel. we demand resistance in the west bank so we can answer this shameless aggression and i repeat shameless aggression the american decision as an act of aggression against our people addicted aeration of war against the palestinian people and the holiest sites of islam and christianity. after seeing me. yet. israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu in contrast while trump's announcement as a historic landmark and said of the countries we're considering following the u.s. lead. we are already in contact with other
7:04 pm
countries which will issue is a meal of recognition i have no doubt that the moment the american embassy moves to jerusalem and even before then there will be a movement of many embassies to jerusalem the time has come. for you. but the u.s. decision also prompted to brought a diplomatic backlash turkey russia and the european union condemned the move saying that recognizing jerusalem as the capital of israel and hopes of resolving the conflict peacefully and that it's divided the international community the u.n. security council has an emergency meeting about the matter. declared friday a day of rage and many fear that the conflict about jerusalem could spark a new bloody war in the region.
7:05 pm
and we can get reaction now from. she joins us now she's a palestinian lawmaker and a member of the palestinian liberation organization's executive committee she is in ramallah mr showing very good evening you were an op ed for the new york times today where you call trump's decision a huge mistake why. us it's a huge mistake because he's not on the undermining the trenches or destroying the very foundations of peace is destroying america and what situation when it is justice by finding such appalling clues and we become complicit in the crime is also inflaming public opinion will provoke will people out the region and beyond and we had supporting extremists and this certainly will have its our relentless extremism and violence than we are and of course by giving an example of violating
7:06 pm
international law and you were doing that. all the strings work together but. arab countries that have predictably reacted in horror to this decision but the size the usual condemnations they're not suggesting any solutions do you feel that a palestinian still at the arab world has given up on the palestinians at this stage when we tried very hard that many arab leaders did call donald trump and straighten up to go down. and they're all now that this is going to affect them and the fact that and to get some of the markets standing of course and influence in the early but it seems he was bent on doing a. good chunk of his closest allies in the region he also gender. bending with their own people so everybody has taken representation again. which in
7:07 pm
itself is a good way of sponsibility. in that sense it's not arabs telling and the fact that the u.s. now has exposed. as being in full support of the occupation and of the most extreme right wing hard line very very government and. and in a shadowy palestinian lawmaker in a member of the palestinian liberation organization executive committee thank you. all right and we can go now to d.w. the very own my ass waiter she is in jerusalem for us she joins me on the line right now maya when we talk about jerusalem we talk as if it's a united a city described as the facts on the ground what's the demographic reality of jerusalem. the jerusalem is a very old city that despite everyone talking about it being visible between east
7:08 pm
and west actually very hard to divide there's no river or a barrier or a clear road between east and west in terms of demographic there's about eight hundred fifty thousand people who live here around three hundred thousand of whom are palestinian residents of east jerusalem and that is an official legal status they hold a resident of east jerusalem which means they're not israeli citizens and they cannot vote in the knesset elections the elections for the israeli congress so there's quite a presence and there's quite a community here mostly in east jerusalem and today we saw many of them especially the youth of the community out in front of the damascus gate at the old city shouting protesting that jerusalem is the arabs are islamist palestinian and that takes a very much opposed to show we say to this read the declaration from president trump and my own what do you very sorry for interrupting you there what are you hearing about the situation the current situation in the palestinian territories or of
7:09 pm
people being reacting. right so we've heard about these these clashes happening in bethlehem and around the territories and we know that police and the i.d.f. are gearing up for possibly more violence clashes incidents happening tomorrow because it is friday so friday prayers will be happening today in jerusalem if things were fairly calm but tense and we still have a heavier than normal police presence out on the streets there are some police on horseback who have been writing back and forth in front of me and my colleague just sort of intimidating the people in this neighborhood it's it's been a tense day there's been some clashes some scuffles some people arrested one person was injured in front of me not a good situation and likely to depreciate in the next day or so last winter reporting from jerusalem thank you. ari want to get you some more background
7:10 pm
on this and for that i'm joined now by our very own william know our glu craft he's lived in haifa and has reported from the west bank and we're very happy to have you here will to help us understand a little bit more about the situation on the ground in jerusalem we just heard my describe the situation in jerusalem we often hear people describe to say talk about west jerusalem and east jerusalem who lives where and is there a freedom of movement between these two communities of course you know in syria there's freedom of movement there are no laws against you know restricting access freedom of access freedom of movement of course the police and security forces from israel often impose restrictions when they see there's a security threat on the palestinian population there which which of course restricts their movement quite a bit there's also the economic perspective the west western part of jerusalem is the modern part of jerusalem is more built up where most of the israeli jews live whereas the east is more of what most people have in mind of of jerusalem the old city but we see behind us the holy sites and this is where poor people live mostly
7:11 pm
the they're the forty percent of jerusalem of the recent population who are palestinians with a residency but not citizenship. as you know in a reaction has said you know has called for an uprising there and intifada are there any other options for palestinians in jerusalem that they can resort to democratic options that they could use to challenge what's happened now for instance we've had a long history of showing the violence does not work it is bloody on both sides it's tragic and it should always be called out and condemned there are democratic options. with residency status palestinians in jerusalem can't vote for the knesset for the israeli prime they do have municipal voting rights they could theoretically change the political situation in jerusalem if they wanted to of course they have been boycotting since ninety sixty seven municipal elections seeing it as submitting to the occupying power being israel that they don't want to participate in of voting system from what they would consider. the enemy so they do have
7:12 pm
options available to them if they so choose if they if they want to band together and create a new kind of strategy because violence certainly doesn't work and in any case like any liberation movement resistance movement there are economic means. you need to put pressure on the occupying power that you are trying to make a change to get it to affect them. to make your problem their problem until that happens not much is going to change well you've written a thesis examining the minority's position in in the israeli state the position of arabs really is basically israel talk to us a little bit about this decision that's been made now by the us will it actually change the facts on the ground for palestinians living in jerusalem or arab israelis right so of course remember that a quarter of israel's entire population of the jewish state is not jewish and as we said up to forty percent of drusilla's population is not jewish it is palestinian. for them though i mean this is more of a symbolic gesture regardless what donald trump now says what u.s.
7:13 pm
policy is what international law says what the national community thinks israel has been treating jerusalem as its unified capital since one thousand sixty seven so for them i don't think much has changed there it's just one more symbol and symbols do matter but it's one more symbol of of the hopelessness that they feel and sense on the streets every day in their lives and it's a region of course where symbols in hers so very much very briefly if you can well how does this torpedo the peace process or what's left of it you know we've been seeing a lot of headlines that this affects the peace process i wonder what peace process we're talking about there have not been talks for years the palestinian side is fractured from hamas and fatah it's fractured geographically between west bank and gaza with two very different situations there and on the israeli side there's very little interest a need from a political perspective to strike a deal with the palestinians because the israeli side has what they need they have a military power and the economic power and connections to the west. thank you.
7:14 pm
all right want to tell you now about some of the other stories making news around the world. the european union is taking the czech republic hungry and poland to court for failing to take their fair share of refugees on their twenty fifteen plan all the countries have taken in almost no refugees in the past two years despite an e.u. agreement to relocate some one hundred sixty thousand people from italy and greece their governments accuse brussels of limiting their national sovereignty. with only two weeks to go till catalonia holds new elections more than forty thousand pro cattle and protesters have gathered in brussels to urge the e.u. to support their drive for independence from spain they're also voicing support for their deposed leader has put him off he is currently in brussels and says he will stay in belgium because he is afraid he'll be arrested if he were turns to spain. turkish president richard tiber erdogan is going to today official visit to greece
7:15 pm
the first by a turkish head of state in sixty five years the two neighbors have normalize their tense relations in recent years but there are still disagreements over major issues like the island of cyprus control of parts of the agency and the migration crisis. and we've got some breaking news to report right now coming in germany may be one step closer to forming a new government the country's social democratic party has just voted in favor of opening talks on continuing the governing coalition which chancellor angela merkel's conservatives for the next parliamentary term party chairman martin shields asked his fellow social democrats to give the green light for preliminary talks schultz initially ruled out the option after the party performed badly in september's general election will now says the success of these talks will depend on what parts of the party program can be adopted as government policy. all at last to discuss and thankfully we've got to charlotte
7:16 pm
a pot who is at the convention what does this mean will it be a new government in germany so. well we're one step closer but actually no when near having a new government in germany of anything this they showed that it's going to be a very lengthy process and the devil really liason the details let me walk you through so basically today the social democrats voted that they are going to attend preliminary talks with manacles conservatives to form a grand coalition after that there in a circle will vote on going into so-called exploratory talks and then they will have another party convention where they will decide to go into coalition talks and in the end they will have their hof million members of the social democrats vote on whether to adopt a final version of these coalition negotiations and then in the end will head into an new government so a very complicated process that is going to take
7:17 pm
a long time and the social democrats won't make it very easy for conservatives i've talked to deputy party leader before and he confirmed that. what are the main conditions set you are asking what do you need the christian democrats to do to make a grand coalition work for you or a grand coalition is not what we were really have as the aim or we should just seek whether there are other possibilities as minority government changing majorities or things like that but it depends on the issues we definitely need to change our european policies much more active fathers towards europe anti-nationalism more progressive. more growth oriented already and it's also we have to secure that in the digital time labor is good labor so that people can. live off on their own what they're earn and we need changes in our pension
7:18 pm
system we have to do something about health care there are a lot of social issues we have to change we have to do something about global justice the same issues as mr cobb in the dresses them or to door bernie sanders in the united states those are issues young people are excited about and we need more young people to join the parties and to become more political and to do something against the right wing problem isn't which we have all over europe. therefore we have to have many changes and the problem is in the conservative party is very weak and they have recourse in the leadership. and the very end part of the conservative party but also and i'm going to project and therefore i think the chance would be very high that we would be able to get lots of these things through and be successful with that and i hope my party will be smart enough to follow the
7:19 pm
path. that we at least try it we might see a continuation of the grand coalition mistake not very much thank you very much for this interview. so what i heard there were a lot of red lines it will show so i'm going to go along with all this. well the demands are pretty bold from the social democrats but we have to say chancellor merkel really wants to make this work she doesn't want a minority government which would be an option if the grand coalition fails she has already said that that is an unstable option and she just want to prevent that she also does not want new elections and actually that is a sentiment that is basically echoed across the political aisle nobody wants to go into new elections so she will move towards the demands of the social democrats and the positions on not so difference with each other when it comes for example to the topic of europe or other issues but the social democrats will make it very
7:20 pm
difficult for her and for her conservatives and the question is even if machall says she agrees with the social democrats on some issues will the party will her conservatives go along with that so it's going to be very tough negotiations ahead and as i said in the beginning we're nowhere close to having a new government in germany at this point to be continued charlie potts reporting thank you. you're watching the news we saw a lot more to tell you about here is what's ahead. firefighters in california battle to contain major blazes that have destroyed homes and sent thousands fleeing more on these brutal wildfires coming up. but first have your is here with the bill is and an ugly word in the world of business one that causes jitters everywhere leyla it's the word restructuring when you hear it you can almost always link it to job cuts general electric has confirmed it's axing twelve thousand jobs at its global power business it's trying to become
7:21 pm
a more focused company and if this story sounds familiar look no further than here in germany. g.e. decided on the currency it says to save over a billion euros in twenty eighteen the company's stock has plunged forty four percent this year and the downturn is not only affected g.e. rival siemens is cutting about six thousand nine hundred jobs its power and gas division has also been hit by the rapid growth of renewables like wind and solar the worldwide trend is towards finding renewable energy solutions like this wind park in china which generates clean energy and doesn't contribute to climate change . and solar has become a more realistic alternative since the dawn of battery storage solutions to store daylight energy the u.s. company says it expects dwindling demand for fossil fuel power plants to continue g.e. said the job cuts would primarily take place outside the united states but nearly a third of the company's swiss workforce is set to go and sixteen hundred employees
7:22 pm
in germany are also likely to lose their jobs. if there is one lesson learned from the financial crisis it's that taxpayers shouldn't be bailing out banks after years of haggling central bankers and financial supervisors have come up with a new rule for lenders so called battle committee reaching the compromise u.c.b. chief mario draghi calls it a major milestone until now banks in the e.u. were allowed to assess themselves on how much capital reserves they need to survive a crisis the central banks only performed stress tests now it will be up to the central banks to determine the necessary buffer most of the rules not only this one but the other ones that were agreed on come into effect from twenty twenty two. now it's not an easy task we spoke to our financial correspondent in frankfurt contact bosun and asked how difficult it was for regulators to find common ground. well of course this is a compromise and long lasting comp a compromise where took
7:23 pm
a long time until it was really forged out of course you always find pundits who will tell you this is not enough who will tell you that for example the capital of buffers of banks should be higher but also i think we shouldn't forget that this compromise was forged out by supervisors and central banks of twenty eight different jurisdictions you know the eurozone america china countries like singapore turkey switzerland i think it's remarkable that they ended up finding a compromise this is not a given in a time where many governments think that national exit ism is more important than finding common ground. that was kind of was in frankfurt i'll be back with more business later on for now it's back to you all right thank you so very much harvey are people on twitter are fleeing virtually to germany this week to take advantage of this country's anti hate speech laws it's all thanks to a tweet from an american journalist who advised people to change their twitter
7:24 pm
location to germany to avoid sin content from neo nazis and our very own karl from our social media team is on this story this is fascinating who is this journalist and what did she tweet so her name is virginia heffernan she is a an expert on digital culture she is journalist with a big following online and let's just show you the message that she sent to her twitter followers this is what she wrote in this was really catching on she says public service announcement for anyone be set by nazi and brown shirt bots i changed my twitter address to germany at the suggestion of a shrewd friend and they vanished germany as stricter hate speech laws just to clarify she's talking about brown shirts nazi bots these are basically automatic automated twitter accounts and they tweet out extremist content this is a big problem lots of people complain about this on twitter while this tweet this was shared by tens of thousands of people it seems like it's really catching on to the point that we're even seeing many people on twitter saying that they took up
7:25 pm
her advice and they gave it a try this is a another journalist here and he writes a pro tips i switched my twitter location to germany and my twitter experience seems much better after just one day this isn't new this strategy has been discussed before but hate speech just continues to be a problem on twitter oh we're both on twitter we both see a lot of this so it seems this twitter hack is gaining some momentum now but i mean is there something to it i didn't know that something is changing your location does it change what you see and your face yes the n.f.l. thought about this either so we decided to try it out and see if there is anything to it does this really work so here's what we did we went to twitter here in berlin we logged on with our german settings and we searched. for national socialist and it brings up several self-proclaimed white nationalist a neo nazi accounts but as you can see about half of them here are actually blocked in germany fact they come up with a message that says this account has been withheld you can see right there well
7:26 pm
went to my profile settings on my account change the location from germany to the us and there's a big difference take a look at this we have the search results and there are a lot different all of these accounts are not blocked the right there including that account that we showed you before it's open you can access it so of course there's still lots of fans of content on twitter in germany but there is a big difference i mean you see there's content that's blocked in germany but not in the u.s. so does this mean that twitter handles this content differently in germany it seems like it doesn't really what we think the big difference is we reached out to twitter they didn't respond to us yet but there's much stricter hate speech laws in germany compared to the us including a new law that was just in acted in october and this is probably having a big difference and take a look at this law this is the basics here it's called the network enforcement act and it requires social media sites like twitter to remove blatantly illegal content which does include hateful speech
7:27 pm
a holocaust and nazi iconography and sites have twenty four hours and to respond to reports of illegal content or face a fine of up to fifty million euros that's a lot of money and this has people in the u.s. saying hey look if twitter can do this in germany if they can block neo nazi sites why can't they do that in the u.s. or wherever they want i mean it's a private company they can make the rules as strict as they want. i think this really has to do with resources i mean it takes money it takes time you need people to really scan these accounts so they have people going through the content of these these reports come from users but you need someone to respond to those reports check it out is this really offensive content is it not that's a big task to take on and unless you have a law. like in germany telling you to do that i'm not sure is going to happen in the u.s. very resource intensive but a good move anyway for those who want to change their locations in germany all right karl as one thank you so much greatly appreciate that almighty we've got a lot more to tell you about here's what's ahead. in the soccer the europa league

7:34 pm
on the ground. not them i say we discussed this with my call and i was on but we don't see that there could be a military solution to this it's a more fundamental problem but it. libya's prime minister stressed that he would not tolerate the abuse of migrants but he admits that his government only controls part of the country the german chancellor says she's committed to improving conditions while keeping a firm on europe's borders. there's a lot that needs to be done to improve the humanitarian situation in libya. but one precondition for us is helping train the libyan coast guard and that we can save migrants rescued in the libyan waters should be returned to the mainland this should come under the supervision of the international organization for migration so we know that the conditions are acceptable. and.
7:35 pm

informal mining though the government seems willing to negotiate it's the mining industry that blocks the move. interested in helping his amazon mess they're even decided to pull out of the meeting that we are with them. they'd be. better off mean that our interests and also the provisional government aren't here to pull out of that meeting they're not interested in us they are only interested in profit making. it's estimated that close to one hundred thousand people in south africa depend on artists in a mining generating minerals worth four hundred million euros per year yet this is only zero point one percent of south africa's money economy. what we are dealing with the. question of greed versus need so often we see that. in fifty one companies control eighty percent of six hundred billion then market and they are denying people the opportunity to put food on the table even though
7:42 pm
our legislation requires requires the state to make these the resources available to ordinary south africans if formalized there could be tangible benefits for the south african economy and for social cohesion in one of the most unequal societies in existence but for now artists will miners operate in a shadow economy and are only able to sell their non-certified diamonds on the black market. they're filling. their shops. so days no. days. in crime or. then. yeah we failed to get those schools. who put the weak local poor weeks we're now off. if no permanent solution for two
