islam is the capital of israel are we believe will set the table for the opportunity to move forward in meaningful negotiations of course but how we force it joins me now live from the occupied east jerusalem mary another day for the vice president to of course receive high praise as he meets the israeli president but how are the media and the politicians from across the spectrum reacting to monday's knesset speech. yes as you say i mean today is really a bit of a victory lap but so far as the israeli political class and the israeli media are concerned for mike pence president rivlin called him a mensch a man of integrity and honor as far as that the media is concerned well it's been pretty overwhelming the laudatory of the speech at those one quite interesting and instructive deconstruction of the speech comparing it with previous speeches of
1:04 pm
senior ranking u.s. officials for instance from the obama administration saying that usually when. senior u.s. leaders come here they will obviously praise israel praise the people of israel talk about the closeness of the bonds and so on but it would usually be at but that would usually be another issue that would drop talk of frank advice about how to deal with the palestinians and to negotiate talk of settlements but in this speech on monday at the knesset there was none of that it was really entirely laudatory of israel praising the current administration of benjamin netanyahu giving guarantees of security without belief any kind of other side of that coin on the holy had quite a warm reception of the knesset but not from israeli palestinian m.p.'s i mean how does pence's does that change anything for palestinians as a whole if anything at all. well i think very much they're in the same position
1:05 pm
they were after the donald trump declaration on december the sixth and their decision the palace in leadership decision to turn away from the united states in terms of its having any kind of a role in the peace process as far as they are concerned over i think the tone of this visit the tone of vice president and his remarks has really cemented that we had from side erekat yesterday the head of the negotiations part of the house and i was in liberation organization that the the chair of the executive committee of the p.l.o. and he was saying that he was talking about the messianic nature of what hans had come and said and also saying that he was just cementing the fact that they view the united states now as part of the solution not part of the problem rather not the solution despite what pence been saying in interviews and again today about. the united states recognizing jerusalem as the capital of israel being a recognition of reality and therefore being a firm a basis upon which to build negotiations the palestinians see it entirely

1:08 pm
a way that actually. you know instead of focusing on liberation they focus on occupation they are interested in out of my get done. in wards back at the hospital house on mr is with one of his relatives every day of the week. this is what the us wants to partition the region and terrorize our people what's happening with pence addressing the israeli knesset is nothing new. the war here has one window looking out on occupied land and an illegal israeli settlement just behind it out of sight is jerusalem for palestinians it now seems further away than ever before andrew simmons al-jazeera bethlehem in the occupied west bank. well even ministers have reassured the palestinian president they support his ambition to have east jerusalem as the capital of a palestinian state mahmoud abbas met e.u. foreign policy chief frederica moghul renia and the european foreign ministers on

1:14 pm
agree on a more permanent budget plan this is not a moment of better selves in the back not even close we very much need to heed the lessons of what just happened here. we need to move forward in good faith. but faith between the two parties is lacking particularly on immigration that issue was the source of the shutdown stalemate as democrats demanded protections for so-called dreamers young undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children and republicans refused monday's compromise as a concession from democrats to reopen the government under intense public pressure while accepting a promise from republicans to address immigration later we have not yet protect their create just young dreamers not only should we protect them we should embrace them value with them we should be grateful for the inspiration they are to america all our important work for the american people had to be put on hold while this

point two earthquake has struck off the coast of alaska the tremor was centered two hundred fifty kilometers south east of chile yank at a depth of ten kilometers a tsunami warning has been issued for parts of alaska and canada almost one hundred people mostly children have been killed by measles and malnutrition in the indonesian province of pop over the past four months now the military has sent more than fifty medics to the area and plans to send more is rich in mineral resources but is one of the poorest parts of indonesia the government has promised to improve infrastructure but papon say the region is being neglected . address of sana is an indonesian researcher at human rights watch and he joins me now from the indonesian capital jakarta good to have you with us live on al-jazeera now the recent cases of the infant mortality deaths has shocked an international audience but is it too simple to say that papa has been neglected by this president
1:18 pm
surely successive governments in jakarta have failed isolated communities not just in papa or year this is not the first case ever if we take a look at church report the un report year after year you can mention the name of the name regency of the region see sometimes sixty sometimes seventy children die in a single you up why has the lowest life expectancy in the meanwhile mortality rate for children and mothers. the highest in their nature why haven't haven't you more likely why haven't organizations like yourselves been able to raise the issue made your voices loud international n.g.o.s foreign journalists united nations official have difficulties to end up while for instance are just euro or associated press every time they want to go to pub why are they have to apply for permit or
1:19 pm
very difficult some time take years to get into pop wa but what if we think differently and then other parts of indonesia if you want to go to bali for instance you just fly to bali you get fees on rival but if you want to go to pump water then it is a totally different planet it is so difficult to go to pop up restriction for foreign journalists you and foreign n.g.o.s including those that provide medical services is it fair to say there's a general apathy in the corridors of power in jakarta to isolated communities like purport that they're not worth investing in but that minerals are certainly worth having. the problem is i think racism the underlying issue is racism and also there is the feeling of paranoia in indonesia that if foreigners going into up why are they real help at nicked up one to be independent from indonesia it is totally illogical but the feeling is here to stay in indonesia
1:20 pm
how much time are you willing to give the president would do to. on this issue because he has visited part four on several occasions he said he would deal with the issue well before this particular incident was highlighted how long are you willing to give him before you raise your voices again well every time i meet president joke or we joke or we don't go i also mentioned that despite his open statement that foreign journalists should go to pump water freely but the restriction underground is still there from the ministry of foreign affairs from the police from the military intelligence from the military from immigration offices if there is a foreign face lending at any airport the first thing that that foreign journalist is going to do is what is your plan for permit to arrive here so this bite what the president had promised things on the ground is not changing at all what we see what does happen certainly in the coming weeks the moment andras have started from human

1:24 pm
a fire under this year's world economic forum and you will meeting all but buried really under heavy snows the heaviest nose to fall here in twenty years remember that donald trump as a candidate was just barely antagonistic towards the whole sort of guiding ethos of davus just a year ago people were sitting here demos watching his an inauguration live on television with perhaps a sense of battlement that will do and will be with them and wondering what it all might mean for them he had as a candidate talked about draining the swamp a message largely aimed at the sort of people who gather here he'd written off the global elite he and his team calling them the party of devils well a year in office and here is the first u.s. president to arrive here in a couple to couple days time since nine hundred ninety his closing speech on friday perhaps the most anticipated moment of the week and people will be watching and waiting to see whether he decides to take the opportunity here to make sort of
1:25 pm
common cause with that idea of globalism to extend the hand of the united states to the global economy as it were or whether he will agitate antagonize and provoke his audience here pushing his policy of america first a policy of economic nationalism that many people here see as the united states withdrawing from the world a policy that stands as i said largely in opposition to what people gathered here are all about said beatrice and interesting watch on friday but trump aside generally what else can we expect from davos this year. the usual sort of a ray of big names in politics in big business n.g.o.s up to three thousand delegates here seventy heads of states and world leaders big talkers big speakers rather keynote speeches coming from there and remotely the prime minister of india justin trudeau canada emmanuel macron will talk up the strength and unity of europe

1:36 pm
what it is today i mean his legacy will always be there certain songs for example or to compose that will never. leave south africans that many people will also remember one particular song. which is every occasion in south africa and all of us but remember because of that amongst many other things but importantly he contributed not only in the art and sort of but politics of sort of a shaped their understanding for example of nine racialism in south africa which remains one of the cornerstone you know in the south in politics particularly in the course of. the different races and sort of where he was one of those people who went around the world preaching the word the concept of nonracial is that people should be affected not by the color of their skin but by who they are and this is one thing that more in many african countries like where you had the dominance of ten african isn't for example in different parts of africa but who was one of the
