meeting in brussels are heading for a showdown over the issue of migration european council president donald tusk called a mandatory quota for refugees quote highly divisive and ineffective but your uncle americal who's just arrived has responded by saying member states can't just pick and choose when it comes to burden sharing and solidarity and the migration crisis is not the only controversial issue on the agenda another difficult topic. this was the happy moment at the summit leaders celebrated the start of closer defense cooperation which might lead to something that a few years ago it seemed unattainable a real defense union today this dream becomes a reality we are launching permanent structure of cooperation so-called. which is a practical expression of our will to build european defense but right after the
9:03 am
happy moment the german chancellor seemed to have a word with two sgt nobody said what it was about but one thing seemed certain medical wasn't happy about comments on a mandatory refugee quota the council president had called the quota divisive and ineffective some agreed but the chancellor had a rather different view when said to him i made it very clear that i'm not happy about the simple statement that the regulations we have aren't working solidarity has more than an external dimension we also need it internally and that's where we have a lot of work left to do because the different positions have not changed. enough pictures like these from two thousand and fifteen are not per gotten migrants trying to make it to europe it's still the most contentious issue in the e.u. more trouble on other topics is looming. until now the twenty seven member states
9:04 am
that will remain part of the e.u. displayed rock solid unity on the backs of the goshi asian front and it's virtually certain they will give the green light to start pace two of that process on friday it will be about discussing future relations with the united kingdom talking about the ambitious and deep and special partnership that i want to build with the european union for the future and on the security issue i'm very clear that although the british people took itself in decision to leave the e.u. that does not mean that we were going to be leading our responsibilities in terms of european security but those talks will mainly be about trade not security that's when national interests will come into play it might spell more trouble for the european union and fewer happy moments. of war i'm joined now by d.w. correspondent your nonsense in process here good morning our concerns about cracks

at going to dampen the christmas spirit there in brussels. judging from personal experience years i have to say that christmas is also the time of the year when things get a little stressful shopping for gifts preparing dinner and i think we've seen quite a bit of that spirit too yesterday for instance over migration and we'll see a bit of that over the open and free debate over the eurozone with the visions for that eurozone quite clashing. back that is bit of a different story because as max hope funding his report put it there is a rock solid unity here when it comes to the u.k. and the e.u. saying clearly there will be no cherry picking because that would endanger the internal market that would endanger all the agreements we've made with other partners and amongst ourselves. until now it is now to present a fairly united front in dealing with the u.k. is that going to last as talks move on to trade. of course so far we've been
9:06 am
talking about the brakes a bill extract ing as much money as possible from the u.k. was in the interest of twenty seven members the same goes for citizen rights and northern ireland everybody very much on the same page when it comes to the trade relationships you will see differences you're bound to see them because every single e.u. member state has a different relation to the u.k. have to front trade interests at stake for that future deal in the making but what will unite everyone is the fear that a special deal a special treatment cherrypicking could endanger the entire european project and nobody is prepared to have that. migration is also a huge topic of the summit where are the leaders heading on that. are the magic words here really is. a constant mechanism for the future and the
9:07 am
obligatory mechanism to relocate refugees you you have a division here in europe between those countries who are unwilling to take in refugees to help to lift the burden for those countries who are mainly affected. italy and greece and those countries who would like to focus on the external strength of the extra little borders that is where pretty much everybody is on the same page but redistributing refugees across europe remains a contentious issue of scale of mantles for us in brussels thanks. a look now at some of the other stories making news around the world four children were killed and twenty other people injured some critically when a train hit a school bus at a rail crossing in southern france authorities are trying to determine what caused the accident investigators are looking into whether the crossing barrier was.

9:19 am
first micro grids in america lawrence orsini founder of l o three energy has watched it come to life the brooklyn micro-grid is our first project transactive energy project here in brooklyn so the idea is that as a person or someone who has generation on your roof whatever you produce and the excess goes back on to the utility grid so instead of pretending that the utility grabs a battery and buying it back later you actually sell it when you make it to somebody else in the community gary golden is one of the sixty prosumer in brooklyn who feed energy into the micro-grid two years ago he had solar panels installed on his roof . we. talked through a lot of tradeoffs but came to the conclusion that we expect energy prices from a traditional utility model to increase in the years ahead and that this investment

9:21 am
provides additional security during storms and hurricanes this year alone america has been devastated by ten hurricanes each followed by extensive power outages. so if another super storm comes through like sandy this section of the grid could actually separate and run under its own power so. if the grid goes down you have a place in the community where you actually have electricity people can go they can charge their phones like i have communications they can get a hot meal the brooklyn micro-grid should only run autonomous lee in an emergency for now it runs on the city's infrastructure while completing final testing but lawrence all seanie and his prosumer has a working hard for a brighter future for energy. chairman president frank meyer will today be attending the launch of celebrations as israel prepares to mark its seventieth anniversary next year here's a look back at german israeli relations defined by the darkest chapter in german
9:22 am
history. the holocaust the murder of around six million jews under the nazis has always been the defining feature of german israeli relations that crime against humanity links the two countries in a special relationship the criminals and the victims. after the end of the second world war and of the show on there was a drive to form an independent jewish nation. in may of one nine hundred forty eight in tel aviv david ben-gurion proclaimed the state of israel. in one thousand nine hundred fifty one for the first time west german chancellor and now i describe the holocaust as an unspeakable crime against jews he promised moral and material reparations in the years that followed economically thriving germany supported still poor israel not only with money but with arms. but the past had yet to be
9:23 am
resolved their working group protests on the streets of israel when west germany. sent its first ambassador there in one nine hundred sixty five it took a while for him to be accepted relations were only gradually normalized. then in september of one thousand nine hundred two the massacre at the munich olympics palestinian terrorists took eleven israeli athletes hostage all were killed in the catastrophe and the mourning for the victims brought the two countries closer together. political relations were also normalized in march of two thousand and eight german chancellor angela merkel spoke to the israeli parliament and offered assurances of lasting support either going to sleep every german government on the front of every chancellor before me has been committed to germany's special historical responsibility for israel's security that today mutual criticism
9:24 am
and clear expressions of opinion are just as much a part of relations as mutual respect both sides accept that german israeli relations will always remain very special. with me in the studio now is our political correspondent charlotte potts show it welcome a very special relationship one that's fundamentally defined by the horrors of the past what is the defining german israeli relationship nowadays is you mentioned the horrors of the past i mean we're talking about the holocaust horrific events and many question in the beginning what if any relationship could have with germany and that changed over the last decades israeli german relations became very very close especially on an exchange side there lots of cultural exchanges germany's funding scientific research in israel is funding submarines for the military is having huge
9:25 am
by literal trade with east so a lot of relations on those sides but also politically germany has always backed rail has always been behind israel and as we just saw she was the first german politician to speak in front of the israeli parliament nearly ten years ago that was something very special but in the past years there has also been quite some criticism towards israel from germany because of the settlement program and because of its critical crackdown on and geos this is something that the german government sees very critical and actually in the beginning of the year and. cancel of government consultations in israel so relations are not at its best at the moment and of course trumps decision to acknowledge jerusalem as israel's capital sparked worldwide outrage and protest what's the german stance on that well i mean first of all the chancellor is strongly condemned the move she said it was something that
9:26 am
was unnecessary and just protests around the world germany stance is that the should be a two state solution israel and palestine and that within those negotiations for a two state solution one should talk about the status of jerusalem as a capital. who had belongs to germany has always seen itself as a mediator in the process the european union as well but the chancellor has also stressed that germany cannot be the main negotiator that the us has to be there as a neutral negotiator so to say and at the moment there is a lot of well frustration on this side because they know that trumps decision now let's to a two state solution really not being any being there any time soon a couple days ago these images of arab protesters burning in israeli flag here in berlin went viral these images shocked a lot of people. how concerned are israeli diplomats and jewish groups in germany
9:27 am
about rising levels of anti-semitism right they have a lot of concern and rightfully so i mean those were images that were seen so far in germany mostly palestinians burning israeli flags. has said there should be a very harsh crackdown on those protests to the flags israeli diplomats and. and jewish leaders are very concerned not only because of that but also because of the rise of anti-semitism we've seen the nationalists you know phobic alternative for germany coming into probably amend and they've questioned the existence of israel if that was in the german national interest if germany should atone for its past so these are things that jewish leaders are very concerned about a lot to be concerned about that charlotte ponce our political correspondent thank you thanks for having me. you're watching t.v. news coming to live from berlin our coverage continues the top of the hour in the meantime you can find the latest around the clock on our web site that address for
