3:10 pm
that's why we have war the fact that hamas uses civilians as human shields it means that. is murdering its own people by hiding cowardly behind this civilians by hiding its command centers within buildings 'd that belong to. you know hospitals or schools this is a cynical 'd way of operating and they hold they wrecked responsibility to all the deaths the days that were going to sit back and allow murderers terror groups shoot and kill jews those days are over and if numbers seem slanted all it means is that israel cares more about its own people than hamas about killing all people are planning to take down. any operator

3:14 pm
push the crowd further and further away from here and a lot of the youngsters have moved down the road of what they have finally come in to try and deal with the situation and bring order and calm back to back to yum. yes. what is your movies read on it in our spooky arab driver wanted to drive into us pressed the pedal to the metal and wanted to kill us luckily he couldn't do it because another car stopped him because otherwise he would have killed us this is our country and they come to kill us in our own country arabs who live here want to kill us no small children died in the streets because of the arabs now we've come here and the army and police are against us here showed so the frogs we can't continue like this is not good for the jews are doing is not good for the arabs the doing the government isn't doing anything so this is what's happening each side is doing what they once were for 70 years we've been good neighbors and it's

3:16 pm
was. was. was was. earlier in the week i spoke to pink floyd co-founder of the activists roger waters he says the international community can force israel to surrender contested palestinian lands. unless some pressure is brought to bear upon the israeli government to stop the ferocious murderous attack upon on gaza they're not going to stop of their own accord their will is not going to suddenly disappear but clearly in the long term. these radio compassion of palestine is untenable
3:17 pm
it is not a future that compulsively survive public opinion is changing all over the world and they are not going to be allowed to get away with it by the by global civil society in my view i can you understand i have to give israel's point of view all not they say an israeli court has ruled prior to 948 and one was in jewish. and. because of jordan it was taken away from them and this is not an equal conflict this is not when we're talking about gaza which who can a barrel full of fish in the israelis is shooting into it with hugely efficient weaponry and them and you talking to me about what some israeli spokesman is saying about what's going on coaster and how that the next thing you'll be telling me is that rockets rained down on jerusalem or something it's equally nonsensical.
3:18 pm
story of which they've been saying they've been saying the same thing over and over again a single state from the rivets of the sea a proper democracy with equal rights all rights equal equal human rights for every rich single citizen all people citizens all the jews all the arabs all citizens of a single state from the rivets of the sea that would work. that would have a chance a real real chance of working you know why because it speaks to the collective management of all human affairs that we're all going to have to adopt to put in the save this fragile planet from this from what we're seeing on our screens here now keeping attention on israel to worshippers are dead this sunday and over 160 injured as a result of a sitting senator or islam synagogue those figures coming in to us from local media

spirit which today has showed its strength daniel hawkins r.t. . we discussed with some guests many of the issues that are the type of tragedy which is once again raised by this. our society not able to scream this before we've got many administrations of situations schools how come a profile like this one went through all of that and nobody saw that he was on the verge of committing this massive massive killings i think there's the serious issue to of all of our societies have to tackle is to pinpoint find these persons and he'll go on an awful lot of people with mental illness of one form or another all they have extreme views and if you give these people guns you've got to expect at some stage that these are going to go wrong so you know the less common sense is going to be that the safer we were it is no secret that you go on the internet you can find out what to do and how to do it and this is a this is a problem for all summer to use bullying we know at least in the research that i've
3:30 pm
conducted here is the leading cause of gun violence in schools so bullying revanche retaliates stand and side effects of psychotropic medications have been found to be the predominant causes of school violence one of the most important thing is that we need to do is we really have to work to intentionally create a very safe school climate working together collaboratively with parents with teachers with administrators to really identify those students who may be withdrawn who may be why it you may have struggled to break the recent lost who may be a victim of bullying you may be struggling academically or they have behavioral issues and the more that people can come together and identify the work that we can be proactive rather than reactive have more of the stories that chip the week when we return at the top of the hour but stay close for more great programs getting
