3:06 am

they were really struggling it was in the right and labor tensions and the opposition parties. they call it on the other classic authoritarian system we saw come together and now look they said you said they were planning when they said big day of rage but they vowed out president saakashvili that now what we see with the demonstrations this undercurrents of disorganization is when the opposition parties certainly expected to turn out and it's not knowing yet whether the parties i am going to come together what we do know is the protesters have certainly stings the guts of being killed by the message that they sent in as he said that things have a back to the turned out. to new ink ahead of the day of independence let's say that helping to run the military parade that will be taking place on freedoms. so first reporting there and on our web site at forty dot com we've got more on the
3:09 am
developing situation in georgia. the opposition protests they are building for president saakashvili we've got pictures on how georgian authorities answer the street damage and of course the other way to something to follow us on our twitter page that's our team as a score card. in . speaking before the u.s. congress the israeli pm benjamin netanyahu announced peace with palestine wasn't an option unless israel keeps the occupied territories the address cause for among palestinians who decried the speech as propaganda riddled with lies and as our
3:10 am
reports and certain to add tension to yet another battleground between the two sides. the israeli palestinian conflict has reached and i mean likely a new field of battle where they no borders and no generals calling the shots there isn't all thet it's. a fact checking or a committee or something like that there is no chief editor or anything like that which is why we can pedia an online encyclopedia as one of the world's most popular websites with sixteen million entries open for anyone to edit rewrite or even raise the most popular of those pages and middle east there is an article i think probably about in the village a palestinian village that was destroyed during the forty eight war is really the independence war and there are i think articles about any military operation that
3:11 am
any side launched during the history of the conflict but both israelis and palestinians complain their side of the story is not properly covered propaganda is putting a label on israel and calling us apartheid state we fight by bringing the actual facts where israel is the most progressive democracy in the middle east and for that matter the only democracy in the middle east and that's why not please you should cancel that represents the israeli settler movement has been organizing workshops to teach people how to post revise and even rewrite some of the most disputed pages on line this disagreement on terminology such as the word occupation the history of what happened in certain conflicts even the names of certain cities and towns what we do is we monitor our various media outlets and when we see for example that a certain media calls israel an apartheid then we send our people to engage in discussion and to give the facts but the palestinians have less people to send in
3:12 am

3:13 am
coarsely r.t. the mother. described washington's intensified after it's to bring the palestinians and israelis to the negotiating table to sides find themselves they're closer to resolution are just pure all values guess discuss what it might take to achieve the long awaited an elusive peace is coming your way in about twenty minutes time. you have to understand palestinians see all of israel also as part of their patrimony your homeland and in one nine hundred forty seven forty eight when israel was created palestinians were at least three quarters majority now when they recognize israel in its sixty seven borders they gave up seventy eight percent of what they regard as their country it is the mother of all compromisers and i think to ignore that and to look at the occupied territories in isolation from the rest of mandatory problems so on and so poor israel's being asked to give up this very important territory ignores what palestinians already agreed to.
