israel's capital and since then we've seen cuts and palestinian aid attempts to redefine under was mandate and qualifies as a palestinian refugee these are all very serious. decisions taken by the administration and i believe that he will be the ship was probably anticipating this what what it will likely do is cement the decision of we're the best his leadership against. any inclination of going back to an american led peace process that decision was made shortly after the gruesome announcement in december and every step that has been taken by the trumpet ministration since then i think is only reinforced that it is unlikely i mean it's difficult to say just how all the actions the u.s. administration has taken will force the piano back to the negotiating table there
6:33 am
has been a lot of talk about donald trump's you know peace plan for the conflict are you expecting anything from this plan mr and can they given the steps that this administration has taken against the palestinians. no i don't i don't think it's you know i don't think it's a serious peace initiative anyone who. knows anything about negotiations or conflict resolution knows that you can't simply bully one party particularly the weaker party into accepting whatever terms are being dictated by the stronger party that is not a peace process that is essentially the terms of. surrender i mean it's simply. power politics and for imposing. you know reinforcing the status quo so i don't think there's any real. mystery as to what is

in this alleged trump peace proposal he's already said that he's thinking through some off the table and they're trying to take the refugee issue off the table they have refused after almost two years in office to say that the goal will be a sovereign palestinian state. so if. there isn't really much left to the imagination in terms of what might in this peace plan so you know where to from here we're not expecting anything from the peace plan but what this administration again taking more and more steps against the palestinians the latest being the p.l.o. office is going to be shot by i think the tenth of october is the deadline where to from hand. well i i don't i think we're going to see more of the same and probably even the eighty cuts and diplomatic sanctions imposed on the
6:35 am
palestinians and humanitarian sanctions imposed on the palestinian people by this administration i think we're likely to see more instability a lot of frustration on the palestinian street will be channeled toward their own leadership for you know. the palestinian leadership has banked on a u.s. led peace process for all these many years for more than two or three decades and there will be a lot of pressure on this leadership to come up with an alternative what is the plan now. and frankly the p.l.o. leadership doesn't have a plan b. . except perhaps to go back to international forums like the i.c.c. . but whether these forms can be effective in actually securing the primary demand which is an end to the israeli occupation is very very uncertain what

6:37 am
the credibility of the court now the i.c. i c c did not react to following john bolton speech but when x. excerpts of his speech were released by the media they did send us a statement now in their statement of the courts of mentions that it benefits from the membership of of some one hundred fifty parties from from across the world trying really to defend its credibility even though the united states is not a member of the court also in that statement the i.c.c. saying that it will continue its mandate to carry out what it calls in the pen with an impartial investigations almost trying to say that it's not going to pick and choose court cases and that if it wants to try the afghan case it will so it use the pla matic language unlike the language used by bolton but at the end of the day without the political will of countries the i.c.c.

cannot function we did speak to human rights defenders as well as former prosecutors and they're saying that the united states acts as if it is above the law that oh yes the nationals of every country can be tried apart from u.s. nationals and that the united states uses the courts. as a political instrumental when it wants to do so and they cite the example of libya for example when they referred libya to the i.c.c. the united states was among the un security council member states that did so so criticism human rights defenders and former prosecutors that the united states feels that it is above the law and the reaction from the i.c.r.c. i.c.c. really diplomatic language but at the same time stretched the dismissing and not attaching really a lot of importance to what bolton said. they want all the news is for brazil's jailed former presidential reason arceo looted a silver says he'll keep fighting to run in next month's presidential election is banned from standing due to a corruption conviction and the supreme court has rejected his latest appeal he
