contradiction to what we heard from donald trump of the u.s.a.'s position just a week ago where they said jerusalem an undivided jerusalem was in their mind the capital of israel that extraordinary meeting came as fifty seven leaders the muslim countries across the world continents met together at that meeting seems by to us president to want that we also heard them condemn that pronunciation by don't will trump and they called on all the nations of the world to recognize east jerusalem as being the capital of palestine we also heard from the palestinian leader mahmoud abbas he said he would now go to the e.u. knighted nation security council meeting to ask for full membership for palestine. will go to the general assembly regarding the membership of his row because it's not in line with international resolutions we will also go to the peace and
1:03 pm
security council to consider the question of palestine's full membership we also heard at that oh i see meeting that they believe that the usa has lost its ability to be a peace broker an honest broker between israel and palestine going forward saying that the usa was not like the onus to more impartial neutral when it comes to the situation between israel and palestine mr one also went on to describe israel as being a terrorist state used to look at that it is still love the trump are you back in this country this israel whether it's occupation and terrorism is that while you're defending well that decision by donald trump a week ago to name jerusalem as the capital of israel has caused tension. not just here in israel and palestine but of course tensions across the wider area and that's why that extraordinary meeting was convened on wednesday the question is is
1:04 pm
this exactly what he wanted do you really want to put himself against fifty seven leaders of the nations and if so have they played directly into his hands in ski altie history recently. well promoting peace was the declared purpose when donald trump recognized jerusalem as the capital of israel but so far there's been nonstop violence across the region. or one of the forces leading the protest movement is the islamist political group hamas seen by some nations as terrorists in an exclusive interview with our t.v.
1:05 pm
organization reiterated its call for a third intifada a form of octave unrest against what palestinians call the israeli occupation of their territory but. feel i feel . it's a lot of little in the name of allah firstly how mass is called on the palestinian people to face the israeli occupation and adopt the blessid in safaga against that and the hateful and racist recognition of jerusalem and to america reverses its decision the palestinian people who are involved in a continuous battle and into fodder against the israeli occupation and we are
1:06 pm
calling for it to be escalated in the west bank occupied jerusalem and the gaza strip against the occupation until america drops its recognition of jerusalem. without doubt the american president trump didn't know what would come of his racist and hateful decision and didn't expect this anger to sweep across the arab islamic and palestinian streets. palestinian people are still under israeli siege they want to continue the into fodder against the israeli occupation and the american administration as a partner who has to take responsibility for this escalation and the consequences caused by this american decision on jerusalem the first intifada lasted for five years the second for for both resulting in the violent clashes on the deaths of
1:07 pm
thousands of people both civilians and. donald trump the situation was heavily criticized by european and arab officials but that doesn't seem to have trouble the american leader as the killer blow up and report. well it's now the time of year in which israel celebrates hanukkah and this comes after donald trump's dramatic decision on jerusalem which may seem like a huge gift we wish you a very happy hanukkah. and i think this one will go down as especially special. right now i'm thinking about what's going on and the love that's all over is you know. all about jerusalem a love that's all over israel trump one is far is actually praising himself for the all but controversial move his point his predecessors only made promises where he actually delivered. jerusalem is still the capital of israel and most remain
1:08 pm
unknown divided city accessible questions that take us as i would begin the process of moving the united states ambassador to the city in israel and shows. i continued to say that. jerusalem will be the capital of israel so why is tom so gleeful about his decision as the international community praised him for it nope they did just decision we do know and agree clearly disagree these decisions are helpful from the european union member states sites this move would not come so is it what the american people want well not according to this poll taken ahead of trump's decision sixty three percent of americans say that they oppose the move but it's popular in israel right well not with all israelis they think of only friends leaving the euro zone and they. are in much greater risk than they were with i think it will because of. people dead and.
1:09 pm
violence i think it was a reckless this season and it takes less time to announce it is like a man who was playing in a coma defeated or in the. in gangsta. so it's taking us three still suddenly in this shooting oh my friends tell me it's a day he announces that they're pretty much scared to go but the drizzling because they don't know how it's going to be underscored to leave the houses but trump did win over some of his harsh critics in the democratic camp. jerusalem is the capital of the state of israel something the united states congress has reaffirmed and a fact of history that cannot be tonight. i support the decision to recognize jerusalem as the eternal capital of israel and to move the u.s. embassy that this decision is long overdue and help correct a decades long indignity there may be benefits for him personally may be. tipping his hat to his base and saying you know this is
1:10 pm
a campaign promise that i made he sees it more important for his personal legacy for his supporters to do this regardless of the contract on world opinion regardless of its effect on the united states and world opinion and regardless of its effect on the palestinian. people the world is not happy with the move america is not happy with the move but donald trump thinks it's terrific a year ago at his inauguration donald trump said that from here forward it would be america first well it's starting to look like maybe it's trump first. r.t. new york. to another over a headline stories this hour on the c international is accusing you governments of condoning that attention and abuse of migrants trying to reach europe from libya. we believe they knowingly complicity in
1:11 pm
a system of abuse and torture of refugees and migrants. because they know exactly what is going on and they have chosen to support. the system of the tension and abuse of migrants without. placing any safeguards were group has published a report titled libya's dark web of collusion focusing on the detention and abuse of people trying to reach europe nichiren explains the details of claims. last year member states launched a series of measures aimed at cutting off the central mediterranean route through libya but to report by amnesty international says that these steps are in fact actively supporting a system of exploitation and abuse of the vulnerable people they should be helping and they have video evidence to back their claims to these are rescue boats that
1:12 pm
countries supplied to the libyan coast guard to intercept migrants at sea honesty says that this is the moment someone that had been rescued was thrown overboard and towed along the sea wall here we see someone else being whipped. thank you it was shock of my eye was my. this particular boat was donated by italy by can april and was handed over to the libyan coast guard in a ceremony attended by the italian interior minister who'd have thought it would one day be the focal point of accusations of human rights violations and then there is the detention center after being rescued at sea migrants are taken to the
1:13 pm
society's run by the libyan department for combat saying illegal migration with the full support of e.u. countries in the words of amnesty is hit but they are exposed to a soul destroying cycle of exploitation and it's a cause for. thought uprising to all our producers who are business in libya to kill some people this or some people would be some poor dear departed chicago. fortune its. use is going to be tossed out finished it's going to be tossed before so as to snoop it was sort of water to drink for limited to us and the. level of abuse is. horrific. do these people live in fear. there is no will or food that provided that unless you can pay for it would be interviewed several people who. said that the way to the why their families were
1:14 pm
on the phone in order to extort the money for the torture to stop and for them to be released. and this is just the ordinary daily life in these centers the rights group wants european go. i meant to rethink that cooperation with libya when it comes to migration and says that if they continue to support libyan or thirty's european governments are laying bare what their true priority is putting the closure of the central mediterranean route for the welfare of the global people meanwhile a report by the european commission on the block's programs in libya her stressed the need to shut down smuggling and human trafficking in the country it went on to say about the e.u.'s efforts have a strong human rights component. well r.t. has asked several institutions to comment on the allegations against the governments including the italian foreign ministry one reply we did get was from
1:15 pm
the un secretary general is deputy spokesman he expressed concern over the situation in libya and stressed the need for the proper resettlement of migrants we have also heard back from oxfam which says that while it can comment on the report its own information seems to support these findings from the e.u. has sacrificed people safety well being in order to stop a regular migration at any cost that's a view shared by international relations professor. because you're getting a number of reports from credible sources including un agencies that there are a systematic abuses there is and and i think it's clear that there are italy has to do and the european union has to say well we're not going to send these people back to libya and we're going to find some way to give them a cease haven whether they're whether or not they are economic migrants or if he isn't is not right the country is in major powers. the stable is situation and
1:16 pm
then later on complained. there are mass migration movements from them or another difficulty is. coming up facebook releases all reports on so-called russian meddling during breaks that the results of vote on live reaction just ninety seconds away. but whole existence to. put themselves on the line to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president or injury. or some want to be rich. too great to be close this is what before three of them or can't be good. interested always in the logs of my. question.
1:17 pm
seemed wrong why don't you all just don't call. me. just to say proud to stay active. and engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. look at the social network join facebook has finished its investigation into alleged russian meddling during the breaks it votes artie's laura smith told me the details earlier. but did it russia meddled in the break that referendum is
1:18 pm
something that's really getting traction here over the last month in particular there's been headlines comments by politicians a speech by the reason may actually last month accusing russia of undermining british democracy the us media in particular has gone to town with headlines like signs of russian meddling in bret's that referendum they've talked about rising alarm they've mentioned new evidence even what they're talking about is thoughts and trolls and in particular paid for advertising on social media and now the evidence is in so findings from an investigation that was requested by two different bodies the electoral commission and a government select committee they asked facebook to look into activities by russian accounts and therefore ascertain the level of meddling in the referendum now you must be dying to know what they come up with so i'll just cut to the chase and tell you seventy six pence facebook identified an ad spend of less than
1:19 pm
a dollar from russian organizations in the lead up to the brics a referendum that paid for three hours but that was seen for a total of four days by around two hundred people and even then a apparently were not directly about bricks it they were more generally about immigration now damian collins the chair of the select committee has responded saying that facebook has only provided details of advertising that was paid for by accounts that were linked to a russian organization called the internet research agency which has been accused of meddling in the us elections hadn't he said looked around that and provided any more information about other accounts and pages that might have been active during the referendum campaign but tech crunch which is a really well respected online industry magazine says it seems pretty unlikely that there's another layer to this. let's go across a lawyer to mark goodwin monism. politics and international relations expert you
1:20 pm
very welcome to the program we've just been hearing the details all valid investigation the findings of a i know you've been looking through it as well the extent of the alleged interference it now seems very weak doesn't it how significant or otherwise could this have been cut or that changed voters' opinion during the u.k.'s decision to leave the european union well i think based on the evidence that we have at this point in time it's very unlikely that any russian linked facebook accounts or so-called twitter bots played a significant role in britain's e.u. referendum this piece of evidence today follows two other studies concerning activity on twitter related to sort of so-called twitter bots and those two studies i think it's important to remember concluded that even in that social media sphere
1:21 pm
any activity that appeared to have taken place actually happened after the referendum had finished. he was quite minimal minimal sorry this piece of evidence today really adds to that story by completely in my view completely undermining the claim the russian backed facebook ads somehow put thousands of voters into voting for bricks prime minister trees in may she had said that the alleged interference had quote no direct or successful influence on briggs and. it does beg the question why the need for an investigation which would have cost a lot more than the seventy three pence that was supposedly spent from russia on trying to influence the referendum. well i think the.
1:22 pm
answer to your question one is that every democracy needs to investigate any allegations of involvement by other powers in their democratic decisions but there is another reason which is that for many remain as i think it's been a very difficult eighteen months trying to make sense of what happened at the twenty sixteen referendum trying to understand that most of those who voted for bracks it did so because they actually wanted to leave the european union in it. and instead of sort of latched on to this idea that perhaps they were manipulated perhaps they were influenced by sort of external powers surely they couldn't have made up their their own minds based on the valuable evidence that they had and so i think many particularly on the sort of more kind of. liberal end of the spectrum have really been pushing this idea the russia had somehow encouraged the vote for bracks it in a big way and it clearly doesn't in my view stand up to stand up to the evidence
1:23 pm
that we have which points in a very different direction do you see westminster acting on or even discussing the findings knowledge of the facebook investigation we do remember of course there was a lot of hype over russian influence in the u.k. parliament before that. well i mean there's been a lot of discussion on social media but i mean as with all of these debates. people tend to push the pieces of evidence all the theories all the allegations that fit with their own views i mean i was slightly heartened today to see the story being covered fairly widely in british media. i think is reassuring but but this is not going to go away i think the issue now is is you know if it isn't russia then then what is it that lead people to vote for breaks it and i think those are the more extreme end of the the romane spectrum will continue to look for these kind of sort of mysterious forces that must have manipulated
1:24 pm
people into voting this way the reality of course is that most of those who voted for brakes it did so for pretty coherent clear reasons they wanted national sovereignty back or they wanted to control immigration but there is a large chunk i think of the british commentary struggles to accept that this vote was grounded in instrumental coherent reasons thanks for sharing your thoughts this hour must goodman politics international relations expert speaking to us from the english capital. but this week marks six months until the start of the twenty eighteen fifa world cup right here in russian and some stars of the game have been gathering in the home of football just were speaking to mark their england in the u.k.'s russian embassy in london in the build up to the year's biggest tournament in sport high profile guests joining in discussions on what to
1:25 pm
expect from the at first ever world cup here we spoke to some of those in attendance about russia opening up to the world to the bunking perhaps even a number of its stereotypes. one of the things you wrote about russia as well into this world cup is that i think the people who watch the games. five. thousand the fans of the people we moved around the country for doing it because you countries so i think that they understand how the world is a minute and i'm sure they're going to make you do everything you know how is to make sure it runs deeply i think though probably. you could never say never but i'm sure they're going to try to eliminate you would have problems. so i woke up and sure i'll be a fabulous world cup know for a long time to prepare them should be a spectacle and i think like most neutrals. because my nation is not there scotland would like the whole mission to go i think it's important for the competition the
