clear benefit the geopolitical benefit our geopolitical certainty at this point of time i think russia would deem that as extremely risky that's why i am asking actually about the european union because the european union is not involved in syria or in libya to such an extent so perhaps they have some leverage with all parties that they could employ deploy rather it's too difficult for the european union representing so many countries to be able to make a decision which is so controversial so i think that we will see european policy makers encouraging individual countries to take steps that empower the palestinian authority that recognizes perhaps the state of palestine they talk about i know the czech republic prime minister had said that in the future in the framework of a peace agreement the czech republic would be happy to recognize east jerusalem as the capital of palestine and west jerusalem as the capital of israel i think this is in fact the official position of russia as well that in the future in an agreement on a two state solution that could be the capital published in west jerusalem the
capital of israel well that's the position of many countries and the the irony and the shame is that no country is making a decisive step to make that theoretically arrangement in reality mr busking we have to take a very short break now but we'll be back in just a few minutes stay tuned. this is kentucky. boy you people are going to vary. a coma any city with no coal mines left. the jobs are gone all the coal miners the said that that was a. these people are survivors of
a world disappearing before their eyes. i remember thinking when i was younger that if anything ever happened to the coal mines here that it would become a ghost town but i never thought in a million years i would see the and it's how it's happened to. us. tax ties or financial survival the stacy let's learn a salad feel out let's say i looks like a baby or at least on grease on face of the fight wall street fraud thank you for help i. want a story that's right. debt slavery. about your sudden passing i've only just learned you worry yourself and taken your last wrong turn. you're out caught up to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm
sorry but only i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest. i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath. but then my feelings started to change you talked about war like it was again still some more fond of you those that didn't like to question our ark and i secretly promised to never be like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters my mind gets consumed with death this one quite different i speak to him out because there are no other takers. to claim that mainstream media has met its maker.
welcome back to worlds apart with a gash and bufkin founder and cochairman of the israel palestine creative regional initiatives mr busk and as far as i'm concerned the most interesting political actor to watch is prime minister israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu in both how he tries to deploy his leverage and how he tries to control the damage and you made a point in one of your recent articles that there was a time when prime minister spoke about mutuality and reciprocity what do you see made him abandon those themes and what can possibly resurrect them breach or a cli i think when he talked about reciprocity. say what they get they do and he
was primarily referring to this issue of the palestinians recognize it that israel is a nation state of the jewish people he has repeated the demand that the palestinians should recognize israel as a nation state of the jewish people the palestinians have made it quite clear that they're not going to do that they recognized israel they're not going to define israel in its national religious character which in the thing that was demanded i think that a lot of what netanyahu says i'm calling to the palestinians to negotiate is kind of empty words because he's not serious about negotiations in mud view with he were he would put down some of the terms of reference for negotiations instead he uses a kind of cliche you have no preconditions and we know what no precondition means it means that israel will continue with its policies of building more settlements and entrenched in the occupation while the party gets smaller and smaller that they arrest to negotiate about exactly and i would go even further i think the netanyahu government is clearly counting on the trump mentum to establish as many facts on the ground as possible and in doing that frankly i think they've abandoned all the
. the usual pretense is because you can hear respectable people in israel openly questioning the palestinians people ask nikko region over that ride to state and if you take these far right israeli vision to its logical and i wonder how does it here resolution what is the advent of that strategy and quite frankly i don't know because i know that in israel we define ourselves as the democratic nation state of the jewish people yet for fifty years already we have a bi national one state reality where israel controls basically everything between the jordan river and the mediterranean sea in this territory between the jordan river in the mediterranean sea about fifty percent of the people living there are a palestinian arabs most of their muslims so they're not part of the israeli democracy nor are they part of the jewish nation state so we are facing in my mind for israel internally regardless of what the world says an existential question of who we are as
a nation and i think this puts to us as the israeli people the need to make a decision of whether or not we want a binational state whether or not we want to have full democracy without a nation state identity where would be one person one vote in which case israel would not be the nation state of the jewish people or we want to put a border a political border between us and the public opinion people and allow them to create their own state living in peace next to israel the decision hasn't been made yet i know that you personally believe that there is no alternative or to be precise no fair or legal i'll turn it to to a two state solution but i think it's also clear that as you alluded to earlier that the netanyahu government only needs this prospect to you as a cover to continue stablish in fact on the ground to continue territorial expansion as attractive as these two state solution is to you personally don't you think that at this point the continuing support for it is only serving departed that exploits is the most i think that neither side. it is being served by the
current status quo with no movement in the peace process i don't see how it's helping the palestinians i don't believe that the palestinians really have a one state option if we can't i don't understand the logic if we can find a way to partition and live in two states let's talk about one state the launcher falls from reality in my view we only have a two state solution it doesn't serve israel's in long term interest by not moving forward of creating a partnership and finding a way to negotiate with the palestinians this is difficult it's not an easy thing to do both sides need to make difficult decisions i think that we will make those decisions we don't have the leaders yet to make them but i think as i said we're facing leadership changes both in israel and in palestine i hope in the united states as well soon now i've seen your advocate a change in not only in the palestinian leadership but also in the palestinian tactics you were just on extend advocating the same facts on the ground strategy
for the palestinians and one of your articles you suggested that if you were a palestinian you would to build on all the palestinian owned land in area c. you would deploy old bulldozers in the west bank to open every road that israel has closed and you recognize that this is going to perhaps bring things to a boiling point what makes you believe that anything good may come out of this i think the key is whether or not the palestinians could couldn't here to a nonviolent popular resistance struggle if they resort to violence and throwing stones in my view is violent as well but you could have a nonviolent struggle where i said if i were a palestinian i would seek to have myself and all of my friends and my family of leaders at the local level of the national level be arrested by israel what you need to do is hold a mirror up to the israeli people and say this is what you're creating this is the reality on the ground we're not using violence we will not cooperate with the occupation any more we want our independence we want our statehood we want to live
in peace but we will not be. in continuing to cooperate with the occupation that means not working in israel now working in settlements not using the israeli issue id cards in the birth certificates and death certificates israel will no longer have control over our lives and we're willing to pay the price for our dependence independence doesn't come cost free and require struggle i plead with the public opinions it gets in the nonviolent struggle because if you use violence you will never get the support of the israelis or the world if you use nonviolence you will get the support of everyone but mr barr busking to be fair i think the palestinians have already paid huge cost for their independence struggle and they are continuing to pay this huge post every day what i think you're essentially calling for is an anti thought and it's a regional meaning shaking things by civil disobedience by planned coordinated action rather than let's say the sporadic violence attacks and knives attacks but
do you think the palestinians are still capable off channeling that anger channeling their sense of indignity into strategy rather than those outbursts round them outbursts of violence again this requires leadership and it requires leadership at all levels that the palestinians don't yet have for twelve years they haven't had elections or eleven years haven't had elections they've had a divided political house for ten years between the west bank and gaza they need to get their house in order and this is of course the palestinians responsibility to do it but i see a new young generation of published indians in the universities educated dynamic people with a lot of of bishan to make a better life for themselves and i and i hope that they understand that their salvation is not going to come from islamic fundamentalism or from trying to knife some israeli soldiers or kill israeli settlers this is not how they're going to save themselves if they're going to continue to pay
a high price in blood. in death and suffering without the end results it's only through a mass campaign of civil unrest of non-cooperation with the occupation and nonviolence that they can achieve their struggle well if i understand your message correctly you're saying that the palestinians have become q passive aggressive where in fact they would benefit the most from being both active and know in a graph if i think they've been frustrated and i think that their challenge because the israelis are very good at what they do the occupation has become very cost free for israel most israelis are not encountered by the occupation they don't see it it's not part of their lives a very small part of the israeli army is involved in maintaining the occupation and israel has open and good international relations with a very strong economy so the israeli society doesn't really understand the cost that the palestinians are paying for the occupation the palestinians need to ask
themselves how can we get the israelis to understand that what they're doing is wrong how did the palestinians capture the higher moral ground there there is a great it's a disadvantage they're much weaker there is no level playing field here and that requires a strong dynamic palestinian leadership now one thing that the jewish writers taught the world is that humans can adapt to the most degrading conditions and i'm not comparing the holocaust era prison camps to the israeli occupation i'm just saying that. people do get used to the most debilitating and appalling treatment and it looks like the conditions in the occupied territories may get even worse now that china announced his decision to have the funding for the u.n. agency that provides aid to the palestinians how do you feel about it do you think it's going to change the conditions on the ground in a way that will make these release notice i'm not sure i think that the biggest cut in the only real budget is going to be in the field of education and teachers are
going to be fired palestinian schools are going to be more crowded the classrooms are going to be more crowded there will be more children in the streets and this is very problematic both internally for public stein and i think for israel it is not a sign of encouragement i think that needs a lot of reform there needs to be a lot of discussion about the future of the responsibility of the palestinian government in the refugee camps both in education and in economic development and it really needs to fall on the palestinians to resolve these issues even though the refugee issue is on the table of negotiations i don't think this is going to make a radical change that's going to shake up the palestinian economy it's not that much money that the americans are cutting and it's not going to be the kind of challenge that i think will shake anything up it will be hurting it will it'll be damaging to on russia as an agency and to palestinian children in terms of the education they receive but even if we take that limited damage to the palestinian
children i would think that having misery and poverty across the border multiplied would not be in the interest of israel why do you think that netanyahu administration hasn't tried to talk out of it especially now that they seem to have such a cordial relationship well i think that in general the israeli government has lobbied with the americans to continue financing of palestinian economic development and certainly the palestinian security forces the israeli position on is one that owner of the. agency which is stains the refugee issue rather than getting the refugees integrated into palestinian society or into the countries where when really works in lebanon and in syria and in jordan and therefore as an engine see for seventy years to sustain the refugee problem rather than helping to resolve it it keeps this dream of going back home which is now the state of israel proper and where those palestinian homes no longer exist so politically israel has taken the position that needs to be closed down entirely so israel is not going to
encourage the american government to continue paying for a room ok well mr bush going to fortunately we have to leave it there but it's been there very interesting though a very troubling conversation i appreciate you being with us and to our viewers please keep the conversation going on out twitter facebook and youtube pages and i hope to see you again same place same time here on worlds apart. yes there was but with the market for your.
help in the last election i. would say well mostly we don't and we will all so we will but you know one of the most often little pushes that so. many times i have seen. you know when i was described. you the two cops believe you know t.g.t. take the easy road reason you took stage. he was living on the bench. the prosecutor the irish do you can you get other cronies up and you tell my boss maybe i'm getting this all my suspension of us. all to see we have a great see what we need to strengthen before the free world cold and you're better than a legend to keep it so it's at the back. in
one thousand nine hundred two that must qualify for the european championships at the very last moment no one believed in us but we won and i'm hoping to bring some of that waiting spirit to the r.c.c. . recently i've had a lot of practice so i can guarantee you that peter schmeichel will be on the best fall since my last will call him that starts or three. thousand the joke goes oh you didn't hear i called russia. strike. left left left more or less ok stop that's really good. prescribe medication is widespread on the us market and a frequent cause of death and. like everything was ashes my family was literally coming unglued i had actually planned. to commit some site.

deepening divisions a new front opened by turkey in northern syria and its operation against the kurds has worsened already tense ties between ankara and washington and what a shame that is think about all that this country has been through and now we're looking at another just russia the promises which have never been kept by united states it's man be greedy the trust crisis. has attended the program davos economic forum giving a speech promoting his own america agenda. a massive explosion rocks the diplomatic corps. pound of the afghan capital killing at least ninety five as the country suffers a spike in terror attacks. welcome
to the weekly here on off the international top stories of the day and off the. u.s. turkey relations have suffered yet another blow this time over northern syria as that's after the turkish army launched a military offensive against their positions in the africa region. that. people now have to flee an area that was previously considered pretty stable i mean what a shame that is think about all that this country has been through and now we're
looking at another destruction in northwestern syria because turkey has taken its eye off the ball isis and going after. at this time you know no i mean then you have to give the weapons have been provided to the white b.g. by the united states the americans haven't kept their promise since man. lately trump statement saying that they won't give any weapons to the white p.g.a. anymore and then saying that we are not giving them any during last night's telephone conversation and create a crisis of trust. the conflict in the north of syria has the potential to escalate further the turkish president says the operation will be extended to other kodesh held regions right up to the iraqi border and the kurds there by washington which has its personnel stationed in the area as well and turkey is now demanding that they leave the region while local codes are calling on america for help. this is see that the us doesn't support safran with thing that's double standards america
has no tools to present to you directly we demand that the us will fills its promises and protects liberated areas including afrin regard the invasion as a foreign occupation of the right side of the right before turkey's are sold american military command had announced its plans to create a border force involving kurdish militias infuriating ankara and the white house quickly backtracked saying no border force would be created that was not enough to stop the turkish tanks from rolling into syria. now assessing the rhetoric coming from both washington and ankara. unbelievable is this real a nato member telling daddy you know i mean i mean to come in behave yourself oral point a gun at you am i exaggerating a bit mr aired on didn't say that these exact words but turkey's got a prime minister who pretty much did anyone who gives logistical support to the white is turkey's target for the record the y b g equals the kurdish army and for
all these years who's been giving the kurds all kinds of support right. the kurds were extended in all of branch that's what ankara calls its military op the but where does that wipe e.g. get its guns. tapered on couldn't care less why washington's been helping the kurds to destroy eisel for this man the kurdish militias are no better than terrorists that explains his latest messages to america because the us is in the process of creating a terror army on our border what we have to do is nip this terror army in the bud america do not encroach on our borders do not provoke us or we will run out of patience does anyone from the us government have anything to say we urge turkey to exercise restraint and ensure that its military operations remain limited in scope and duration and scrupulous to avoid civilian casualties some very restrained
counsel there to be restrained think about it mr aired on rants that america u.s. officials don't hit back turkey rolls up the tanks flies out the more play sends soldiers over the border washington basically keeps stuff after all this isn't about kim who's sly this squeak makes donald trump for one war so perhaps the turks and the kurds have succeeded in one thing together were juicing america to baffled silence we discussed the latest in the african region where the one he says was provoked. thirty thousand soldiers to be trained by united states was extremely provocative to varied human powers to iran to syria and also to turkey so i believe this and many can move actually ignited this problem
and this confrontation and three i believe that. their key and particularly president. realize that this kind of move could lead to a partition of syria and also a partition of picky so that's why he moved and sent his forces. the military offensive against the kurds through international attention and the number of european countries seeing antiwar rallies some of them turned violent resulting in scuffles with police and arrests. ga ga ga ga was. i. i. was was
was was showing. the annual the world economic forum took place in davos this week and the star attraction this year donald trump who became only the second u.s. president to attend the summit his visit was unexpected as trump's america first policy seems to be at all but the forums improving the state of the world tiger line the u.s. leaders arrival was met with a protest right there two thousand people marching through zurich denouncing both trump and before him several small approach. yes took place elsewhere in the country including geneva so they didn't seem to put off the u.s. leadership jaclyn for the report. feel very flattered that he has chosen this as a forum. for those that don't want to listen to him you can they can leave well
probably to no one's surprise whatsoever trump speech did feature his signature phrase of america first and his speech is actually rounding out the end of the forum i believe in america i will always put america first when the united states grows so does the world america is roaring that america is a cutting edge. that's what we're doing in america and the results. on mistakes of america's future has never been brighter i will always put america first i believe in america to come to america where you can innovate create and build now that pretty much wraps up his whole speech which centered on progress that's been made in the u.s. in the presence of opinion since he came to the white house term speech was highly anticipated and according to reports lines were out the door hours before it even started and here at this economic forum trump in true businessman fashion used the
opportunity to promote himself and his country european leaders who are also before him with europe. like so i went against the grain of the summits globalist. it isn't gentlemen my my my first mistake he said france is back france is back it's a call for europe because we will never have any friends success is without a european success if between our twenty seven member states we're not able to send a clear and united message to major powers such as china india and the united states if foreign policy is made on the national level that it will feel not so. a number of central topics on this year's agenda or davos actually had very little to do with economics at all gerald celente things the world economic forum has shifted its focus from the central would it in its name the davos speaks to the zero point one percent of the people they have been very little concerned about or what the
rest of the people are getting it's one big club and it's a deal making club again all this other little things about you know gay rights equal pay oh that's just a lot of nonsense and it's in the media to write about when they don't want to write about the hard facts of how the so few own so much and how so many own so little this channels deputy editor in chief also took part in davos and upon long fake news adjourning the debate the b.b.c. is representative went out of her way to criticize r.t. and question our role as an alternative voice in the media there's no equivalent solomon you know the b.b.c. yes you say aussies just cos it's like the b.b.c. it's you know b.b.c. subject city. independent you know. regulate call as art which is nothing to do with the with the government.
