when people think of cuba they think of revolution but ivana is undergoing a revolution and people traveling with isn't the building we're here to discover if those changes are reflected on the plate but this is a q what is the q and. russian owner i'm trying to read more today ruth a.j. it's on al-jazeera. a jewish nation states we look at how a new israeli law both defines and defines its citizens. so obama you're watching al-jazeera live my headquarters here in doha coming up in
the next thirty minutes what's been seen as a major victory for syria's president rebels agree to surrender their weapons in the southern province of truck. also who poisoned a former russian spy and his daughter british police are reported to have identified the suspect. and accused of committing crimes that constitute genocide a human rights group details how soldiers and meum are prepared to attack civilians . be with us welcome to al-jazeera israel has passed a controversial law that for the first time declares the country to be the nation state of the jewish people it makes hebrew the only official language downgrading arabic to an ambiguous special status and it also promotes the construction of jewish only communities however critics say the little marginalizes israeli palace
. in minority who make up twenty percent of the nine million population is really palestinians have the same rights as jewish citizens but face discrimination rights groups say the law will only promote racism and stuffing deca reports now from west jerusalem. was its official israel is a state exclusively for jews that's the essence of the controversial nation state bill passed by the knesset on thursday after hours of heated debate the measure became law by a vote of sixty two to fifty five the two abstentions for years the language of the bill divided political opinion between the ruling parties and the opposition members of the knesset say the law legalizes discrimination. this is a bill from a government that has an enemy to palestinians it's the most dangerous measure it's a law from a racist government against palestinian rights and to create an apartheid regime it turns israel into a fascist state yes i don't most controversial clause in the bill
a provision calling for jewish only communities was replaced at the last minute the original legislation would have allowed the state to establish separate communities on the basis of religion and nationality the replacement provision says the state sees developing jewish settlement as a national interest and will take steps to encourage advance and implement this interest illegal settlements for jews are already being built in breach of international law and u.n. demands another controversy is the status of the arabic language the new law says hebrew will be israel's only official language demoting arabic from second. deputy attorney general says the law also allows the construction of synagogues and ritual baths but not mosques. the israeli president says the legislation could harm jewish people and israel's enemies could use it as a weapon protestors against the will march to tel aviv on saturday.
israelis came today to protest against the nation state law which is a racist and fascist law that is trying to turn israel from a democracy into something else therefore we are here to block this drift towards dictatorship and fascism. i came today to say that the arab citizens of israel are not inferior the nation state discriminated against them as the israeli government has been doing for many years arabic is an official language and they deserve equal rights. the government led by prime minister benjamin netanyahu insists that it's important to establish that israel is the historical homeland of the jewish people who have the sole right to national self-determination palestinians say they see the move as legitimizing apartheid turning what is already an act of policy of discrimination against them until stephanie decker al-jazeera. the palestine liberation organization says the law marginalizes israeli palestinians. this law
establishes a system against the palestinian people and implements a policy of ethnic cleansing against them in order to expel palestinians especially when this law provides that this land is for the jews and a knowledge of historical facts about the existence of palestinians on this. post chief political correspondent and he disagrees with critics who say this bill is about israel promoting apartheid. well in apartheid you had no blacks serving in their parliament from one thousand nine hundred eight until one thousand nine hundred four in israel you of eighteen arabs in the parliament and to have had in every parliament we've had here this bill ends up not harming them at all you have arabic specifically protected in the bill there were attempts to add things that might have been considered racist they were not included in the final draft of the bill and it's now made sure they wouldn't be included in the final draft of the bill this could have been a lot more controversial than it ended up being it's specifically guarantees the rights of arabic as
a special language it guarantees it says that citizens of israel no matter what their religion is and their nationality can act to preserve their culture and their heritage and their language and their identity there are things here that are bad for jews and there are things here that protect arabs well bashar is a senior political analyst joins me now from london she'll be many palestinians that disagree with gil hoffman's point of view amal won but what this law does as far as many perceive is formalize the segregation of the discrimination that's already been in play for over seven decades. absolutely and certainly it's not just palestinians who disagree with gil hoffman it's actually fifty five israeli knesset member disagree with him so does the former justice minister in israel. also a former foreign minister who actually argued that this sort of a law would give ammunition hence proof to those detractors of israel
that israel is an apartheid state. in fact she blocked the possibility of vis a vis draft floor becoming law back in two thousand and fourteen and two thousand and eleven because she thought this was just the wrong glow so not only do palestinians disagree with what you just heard earlier from the jerusalem post guy in fact most jews disagree with this sort of take on israel on zionism on policy a minority in israel now the fact is and i hear we talk in fact not analysis is for the last seventy years israel has discriminated against its palestinian minorities almost every other former israeli politician is on the record admitting that so there is no argument with that fact now is it a party exactly like south africa no it's not there are no two systems exactly the
same thing when people refer to a setting characteristics of a party that is there they don't mean that palestinians drive in the back of the bus they don't mean that they are not allowed in parliament but what they do mean that the discrimination is based on a certain race is racist ideology against them because they are not jews and that doesn't just happen within israel it also happens in the west bank it happened in gaza before and certainly it happens with three quarters of the palestinian people who are not allowed to go back to their homes black south africans were not aware of not deported three court. those of them outside south africa while three quarters of the palestinian people cannot go back to their homes in fact some hundred and twenty thousand palestinian citizens of israel are displaced people they cannot go back to their old home towns and villages within israel itself so one wonders why you legislated this particular way because it doesn't seem to lead
to an avenue you that would make well headway towards a peace deal or peace table negotiations with the palestinians in any shape or form . what to be honest. nothing there not only our government has done over the last what is it ten years now serve the purpose of peace you know unless you take it from their very racist coalition partners but in the end of the day everyone around the world including europe and the united states understands that for example the expansion of settlements is not conducive to peace that annexation of his jerusalem is not conducive to peace that simply repressing the palestinians and creating all these checkpoints and so on so forth one by thing guys are strangling gaza is not good for peace but be that as it may i think the point or the object of behind this new jewish nation state bill is to make sure that
a majority is needed within israel. in order to allow any palestinian refugee to go back to their home that any future palestinian and if you choose a peace plan would not. pressure israel into accepting the refugees for example to go back and will not pressure israel to giving up its full control of all of jerusalem including occupied east jerusalem for the most we'll leave it there mo and see how this plays out in the coming days mo bashar there are senior political analyst staying in the region and will head to syria no agreements have been reached between the government and opposition in the city of now on the problems of a quick intro now the areas of faced an intense aerial bombardment over the past two days these pictures shown strike hitting an area just beyond the occupied golan heights not far from going to trial rebel fighters from there are being taken to it lived in the north and government troops will now return to the twenty eleven positions. two towns besieged by rebels in syria's italy province have been
evacuated after a deal was struck between opposition fighters and pro-government forces thousands were bussed out of the fray in the northwest the shia towns have been under siege by sunni rebels for more than four years pro regime forces and their families are amongst those who left they've been taken to areas under government control in exchange the government is expected to release hundreds of opposition detainees. the u.k. security minister has dismissed reports that police have identified suspects who poisoned a former russian spy and his daughter as wild speculation the press association says police have obtained security camera video of the novacek nerve agent being planted and the suspects of russian surrogate and eunice cripple were found unconscious in salisbury in march the kremlin denies any involvement let's get the latest now from jenna hole our correspondent in london we were exactly are these reports from the associated press saying it's the press association.
and they're quoting an unnamed police source as saying that the police have as you say identified a number of suspects they believe them to be russian involved in the poisoning with nabil chalk nerve agent of surrogate scribal and his daughter use they've done this according to reports after painstaking work involving hundreds of officers scanning thousands of hours of c.c.t.v. footage from the scene in salzburg where the pair were discovered also from their home and areas around where they may have travelled before the poisoning took place and they've cross referenced those images with c.c.t.v. taken at airports they've also looked at passenger manifests on flights and they seem to have drawn some connections suggesting that if they're not russian these people at least arrived in the country from russia as you said security minister has dismissed.
