oh. donald trump officially recognizes drusilla man as the capital of israel the movie is already being fiercely criticized across the muslim and arab world. and after years of it terror i saw no longer holds any territory in syria the russian military says the group has been defeated there. plus after months of speculation of president putin officially announces his bid for reelection in two thousand and eighteen.
broadcasting live direct from a citizen of this is are to international of john thomas glad to have you with us. now donald trump has announced it that the time has come for the u.s. to officially recognize jerusalem as the capital of israel there's already been a wave of criticism to the proposal across the muslim and arab world trump also gave the green light to moving the american embassy to jerusalem from tel aviv therefore i have determined that it is time to officially recognize jerusalem as the capital of israel. all right artes and i twenty four news correspondents giordano miller and mohamed the same spoke to my colleague and a farmer earlier caleb is in new york. and his remarks maybe a long time u.s. ally which it isn't the palestinians and jerusalem should ultimately form to share
form a shared capital now here in the united states israel supporters are certainly jubilant but other parties are quite upset with the decision it's been quite a mixed reaction here in the usa as well so across the planet there's been lots of controversy in response to donald trump statements but as he reiterated many times during his speech making the announcement he insists that he is still committed to a two state solution so we'll just have to see what further reactions develop ok things kind of let's get some reaction now from the west bank because they're standing patiently is mohammed saying from twenty four thanks very much for coming on mohammed just tell us what's been the reaction in the west bank because donald trump has been selling this is a step towards peace but many people believe it's a step backwards. will soon after u.s. president don't trump concluded his speech president mahmoud abbas in a televised speech an angry speech to be quite honest with you. the decision by
the u.s. president and criticize this decision saying that jerusalem will look for ever be an arab. capital of the palestinian future state and no one can change its identity and these deplorable and unacceptable measures deliberately undermine all peace efforts and proclaim that the us are abandoning the rule sponsor of the peace process that they have played over the past decade there has been minor clashes throughout the west bank and in fact we've heard that there has been some demonstrations in east jerusalem there will be a general strike i'm a cause for days of rage deferred also reports of demonstrations in jordan. and also. the capital of carriage in front of the u.s. embassy as well as demonstrations a few hundred turks in front of the u.s. consulate in istanbul wide condemn nation throughout the middle east and the muslim world with the decision that the present don't trump talk by moving the embassy
from the city of tel aviv in israel to jerusalem as well as announcing that jerusalem is the capital of israel ok thanks mohammed let's get the israeli perspective now because we can go to donna miller she's in jerusalem i have to say that really across the political spectrum here israeli lawmakers and the majority of the public here support this move the prime minister benjamin netanyahu put out a statement on you tube this is a historic day the president's decision is an important step towards peace for there is no peace that doesn't include jerusalem as the capital of the state of israel he went on to call this a just and courageous decision and he called on other countries to follow suit no it doesn't look at this moment like many other countries will follow suit but overall this is a decision that israelis have been praising now if we look at the israeli arab lawmakers of course
a very different reaction there the head of the major party here that serves in the israeli knesset releasing a statement saying that trump is a quote hater that he is not interested in any kind of peace between israelis and palestinians by making because he's made the kind of move which really destroys he said the chances for peace. by politicians around the world have already reacted to trump's decision german chancellor angela merkel british prime minister or theresa may and e.u. foreign policy chief frederica mo greeny have all expressed their disagreement with the move. the german government does not support this move because the status of jerusalem is to be negotiated within the framework of a two state solution we disagree with the us decision to move its embassy to jerusalem and recognize jerusalem as the israeli capital before a final status agreement we believe it is unhelpful in terms of prospects for peace
in the region the european union expressed a serious concern about today's announcement by the united states president trump the aspirations of both parties must be fulfilled and a way must be found through negotiations he spoke to hussein about three from the middle east a technical university who believes the u.s. and israel will have repetitions to face over this month but i think he has taken the risk this time not business risk but political risk and goodness of this will be very far more and i think america and american citizens will not have a very easy life there from now on the middle east country and many other powerful but this is a decision of the american administration and the only on marriage that can repair this donald trump is certainly his decision back but this is another process so i would expect the. economy political enforcement psychological.
a lot of problems for the middle east for devices of america but also for the entire islamic world which can cause for fifty seven countries conference of islamic countries. the russian military has announced today that syria has been completely liberated from islamic state terrorist artie's broadcast you have has the latest. the sioux called islamic state of syria and iraq is a state no more for all intents and purposes says the russian defense ministry it has been destroyed as a fractured iraq still hot spots and isolated pockets with putin added but with the liberation of the west bank of the euphrates river isis has done seven hundred and ninety nine days off to russia got involved in september two thousand and fifteen when isis was arguably at its peak.
please us. when the russian operation began isis held more territory in syria than any other faction two years in a few months on the caliph it has been reduced to clumps of villages and i don't have a desert wasn't the russian air force saloon that did this the u.s. led coalition also played a huge pot we've been covering the syrian civil war in depth before isis even had its name before jihad ists hijacked the rebels' cause he had some of the more memorable moments filmed by my colleagues and die. this is the ad big in life akio from which russian jets.
against targets here in syria. whether it's. time the planets are ready to go it's a moments notice. it's quite incredible to be standing here in the pile of this has anything changed since fifty of palmira not one for people around the world feed would be reduced to dust in this amphitheater laid down by the romans or most two thousand years ago that isis staged one of its sickest massacres the russian military considers it the crown in jewel of the operation here in syria.
you can see had just some of the impressive military hardware that isis have in the possession that has made the battle for palmira so tough when extremely close to isis positions less than two kilometers away and. where it's a syrian artillery position overlooking the industrial quarter of their resort the battle is said to be fierce isis fired back as we filmed shells began falling
well around. we ran but the syrian batteries kept firing. life even did is order is still far from normal but at least they won't be starving to death and the more. your ultimate plea it wasn't russian or american jets that played the decisive role in this these victory belongs to the syrians the thousands and thousands who fought and died to defeat isis those who stood up to jihad ists even when it seemed nothing could stop them unfortunately it's unlikely that this land here any isis fighters have escaped or god on the ground sleeper cells will terrorize the world for years to come but now they'll no longer have the caliph that to fight for.
with russia saying i sell has been essentially driven out of syria there is still the question of what to do with the groups remaining fighters in neighboring countries including iraq from there are done of ports. russia has effectively expressed its outright willingness to join the u.s. led coalition against isis of the very same coalition that has been conducting air strikes against terrorists both in syria and iraq now of course russia has yet to hear back from washington on this but donald trump has already made a statement and a rather peculiar one in relation to the russia's announcement today the u.s. president has praised the fact that quote i still has been knocked out of syria and knocked out of iraq and just geographically speaking this may leave one wondering where i still has been knocked out too because i still can't really flee to say
saudi arabia or to iran or to jordan i still only fleas either from iraq to syria or vice versa and we've already seen such cases for example when washington was pounding eisel in mosul they ran over the border and became a pain in the neck for both russian and syrian forces and now with moscow and damascus giving i still a pounding well their only escape route is back to iraq or just to get to the border and so this i should say fluid situation kind of stresses the fact stresses the need of cooperation between the two militaries between the russian and the u.s. military but there is no love lost between them really the relationship was already very strained the russian announcement about the almost fall about the de facto victory over iceland syria has already seen some disagreement in the pentagon has said that they choose to respectfully disagree with the russians and the russians
have the russian military has responded with concern that this is just a pretext to leave u.s. forces on the ground in syria even after the operation even after the victory over i saw it will be really interesting to see how all of this unfold especially with the u.s. state secretary rex tillerson the meeting of the russian top diplomat sergey lavrov on thursday in vienna. ivan eland a senior fellow and director of the center on peace and liberty gave us his thoughts on what is next for syria following eisel defeat there is always a question of who is going to you know occupy the lands that i saw that are had had occupied before after they were defeated and i think the u.s. always has trouble leaving theaters of war and you see troops still in korea you know almost seventy years after the war ended there and we see troops still in
europe after the cold war is over so i think i predicted that they put us would probably stay around in syria with the help of the kurds of course and so they don't want to give the that that territory back to assad the assad. regime in syria vladimir putin says he is running for a fourth term as russia's president next year the details on his big announcement after a short break you are watching our contest. if you trust the mainstream media well then you're in the minority sadly a great deal of media today is not designed to inform but rather confirm political biases this approach of the news is not only polarizing but it's also lowering journalistic standards this is why readers and viewers seek their news elsewhere.
so do they view. the coalition that has been it has been basically destroying yemen killing yemeni civilians and now it's a common. international talk the saudis refrain from even killing babies. in did an indiscriminate bombardment of civilian areas in yemen for the past thirty months. this is international letterman putin has officially announced his bid for the two
thousand and eighteen presidential election in russia. as more. it was widely expected that vladimir putin would decide to run for reelection next year however he has played korea on the topic so many times i in recent months and one contact but wonder whether he was genuinely conflicted on whether to run for the presidency again or whether he was just being really good at keeping a secret and playing the media nevertheless we were put out of our misery when he said this but you grams of frank you for your support yes i will present my candidacy for the president of the russian federation. my super bowl sure thank you for your reaction but first of all spoil your lord. and i was rumored that this big announcement would come earlier in the day when he attended a volunteers for him here in moscow in fact i was here ready and waiting to bring you the breaking news of his decision however he played quite once again and also
seemed to seek validation from the audience there and they seemed very clear on what decision he should make years you're going to show you if i make such a decision. and the people close to you support it. but it still should prove to be an interesting race over the coming weeks and months with quite an eclectic mix of candidates throwing their hats into the ring one of the most prominent being a stop child she's considered to be the russian paris hilton and what's also quite interesting about her is that she putin she's attended opposition rallies and she's promised to unite people against vladimir putin is the first time we've seen any woman and to the race for the presidency in russia or in fourteen years and of course there are the usual suspects as well including the liberal democratic party
had a bloody mir she were not scare the communist party is again r.t. if you go. around all of the liberal yabloko parties grigori yavlinsky up five also business on bud sman boris tito of his from the party of growth he has pledged to champion the rights of entrepreneurs so quite an eclectic mix that for the russian people to think that teeth into ahead of the elections in march next year we asked analysts out of gary do comment on putin's announcement he's the managing editor of the news website the duran dot com. president putin will be all too aware of the unfinished challenges that remain ahead and that will certainly remain after march of next year these include further consolidation and cooperation of the one by one road project of which russia is incredibly important it includes finalizing the peace process that russia has instigated for the syrian arab republic finding a last thing peaceful solution for the free people of donbass finding
a peaceful solution to the our. car bar conflict as well as using the momentum of the brics and other international bodies like the shanghai cooperation organization to dollar rise the rising east and south as people tend to call them this will include making the gold system more centered in asia rather than in europe and north america it may include increased trade will certainly include i should say increased trade in national currencies between partners in southeast asia and your asia even africa in some cases especially if we're talking about metallic standards we're talking the russian federation is going to introduce a crypto ruble next year joining venezuela being the only two countries to officially have the crypto currency and then of course there's the matter of increasing people's wages without damaging inflation so all of these very important
things are on the table of any president and it seems that flooded here putin wants to ask the russian people for their trust so that he can continue to work on all of these incredibly crucial matters. cryptocurrency big coin has set another record breaking above the twelve thousand dollar mark for the first time compare that with where it was at the beginning of the year when it was trading at about a thousand dollars per token since then it has been growing constantly or be it with regular fluctuations here is a quick reminder of how it works. we
asked a senior market analyst if bitcoin could hold its own in the world of financial giants. a year ago how much further it can go and those forecasting two thousand would have been seen as being on realistic and yet here we are at twelve thousand so as we've seen so often with bubbles and if this is one then they can go on a lot longer than people can remain solvent if you're planning to for example go against the trends the problem that we have here is like say this is not a real thing here this is a crypto currency this is just an online virtual. currency and therefore with it
being such new technology and not being overly widely adopted at this stage it's very difficult to price and that's why i think the speculative aspect of this is the most concerning or that does it for me i will be back in about thirty six minutes with a full of two news you are watching our two international. about your sudden passing i've only just learnt you worry yourself and taken your last
wrong turn. you're out caught up to us we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry but only i could so i write these last words and 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 a cave still some are fond of you those that didn't like to question our ark and i secretly promised to never again like it said one does not leave a funeral the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with death this one different person to speak to now because there are no other takers. claimed that mainstream media has met its maker.
it's a miserable yet there are more wonder when the healthy are colorless it is either. within them or took one feels a. little. of this a rosary that in their eyes shone on the floor in the afternoon and all their mental records were north of where on the cliff is a moment a look from the years as a local little kid on the one that was on the view an infinity of. all those laws you know like a oh yeah oh so help us all if i thought that they'll fall. if . i am from. from
. i. was a part children and this is a boom bust broadcast around the world from washington d.c. coming up that point continues its surge in value early in the morning hours busting twelve thousand and really just moments ago at thirteen three forty thirteen three forty guys an expert joins us to talk about the cryptocurrency can somebody explain this plus farmers and ranchers may be producing so much food that over supplies have been created pushing down prices which is good for families on a budget but it's hitting about half the states in the country pretty hard we'll plow into the issue with that answer experts and now let's check out some of the
stories topping the headlines. good manager former manager oliver schmidt has pled guilty for misleading us regulators and violating clean air laws in two thousand and fifteen the u.s. e.p.a. accused volkswagen of cheating on their mission to test the environmental protection agency found that there were discrepancies in various car models like the jetta beetle golf and even the audi a three as the investigation continued it was discovered that the company and use really highly sophisticated software that was installed in over eleven million diesel cars to actually trick the emissions test the scandal was so bad that volkswagen c.e.o. martin winterkorn had to resign volkswagen spent more than eleven billion dollars to buy back vehicles paid one point five billion dollars to the u.s. government for the civil lawsuit and paid more than two point eight billion dollars for a criminal penalty schmidt is facing a seven year prison sentence and will have to pay up to four hundred thousand
dollars personally. bitcoin has reached yet another record as we've talked about it was just twelve thousand a little bit earlier but now up to thirteen thousand dollars per coin that's pretty crazy and why it's going on we really don't know there's many folks out there suggesting it could be a variety of different things but what has caused this massive price spike you know experts are really confused on it could be a strong asia bidding i've talked about this thing called a digital lake of liquidity meaning it would be boosted by the i c o o's out there others have talked about perhaps it's the other exchanges now that are offering futures prices like the chicago mercantile exchange group nasdaq and even the cboe the shaw go board options exchange but certainly things are going gangbusters per per bit coin we'll see how that goes and we'll talk about it very
