11:22 pm
ambassador to the u.n. a longstanding opponent of a two state solution that in town. and buster danny danon thank you for joining me up front there's an old saying that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing again and again and expecting different results what different results do you think israel is achieving by bombing garza yet again this week apart from risking more innocent lives on both sides and bolstering support for hamas again when you have tax against civilian population you have to retaliate you have to send a clear message we try our best to focus that tax on military infrastructure in gaza and like hamas were doing exactly the opposite they are
11:23 pm
committing a double war crime because of this then the rockets didn't population this time from our past and they targeted my community responsibility and population it is a double war crime and we have no intention and actually we all of the bombs and all of that out of the our souls was only targeted on the military person are you saying how massa guilty of war crimes you say israel is retaliating for people who were killed how must palestinians in gaza would say the same they would say we're retaliating and you are guilty of war crimes the u.n. your israel's permanent representative to the u.n. last month a commission of inquiry formed by the un human rights council found that your country may have committed war crimes and even crimes against humanity in gaza last year killing one hundred eighty nine palestinians in protest of the girls offense including medics journalists people with disabilities and you injured nine thousand others. let's talk about the those facts first of all the u.n.
11:24 pm
so called the inquiry commission for the human rights council it is a joke so what happened there and what happened last year you have sixty thousand people marching to our fans what would have happened you think if you would have come to the sense of the will break the silence and then what they would say that it we want to go back to gaza no they would continue they would march into our communities in israel and they were id card and there we were among them they said we want to kidnap israelis we want to kill israelis so that the law is what is the solution then so let me ask you this question what is the solution to gaza because in the past your solution you personally called for quote the deletion you said every neighborhood in gaza from which a rocket is fired should be deleted you said electricity and fuel should be cut off to gaza all of that is a war crime you know that it's a war crime to do those things that you're proposing so let's look first of all what's happening in gaza today we pulled out of gaza i want to remind you it's
11:25 pm
still defined under international law though according to the u.n. it still occupies a we pulled out completely from gaza prime minister sharon took out all the jewish settlements the communities in gaza the only ones occupying gaza today if you let me just know what the united nations is here you let me ask for israel you're here representing the israeli government do you seriously expect us to believe that these israeli attacks in gaza this week have nothing to do with the upcoming elections of april the ninth that they have nothing to do with the fact the prime minister netanyahu has been accused by his opponents including by retired general benny gantz who's now leading in the polls of being too soft on hamas that this is a political body your question is political we didn't start anything in gaza what happened in the last stand a missile and destroyed a house with kids and that's what ignited the process the conflict so how can you even blame the prime minister or value say the men. maybe i'm seeing the prime minister. with the risk of going with respect over there you're asking me how could
11:26 pm
i question the private is that you yourself accuse benjamin netanyahu in the past of making quote fake rightwing noises in a quest for a vote those are your words not mine you said he makes. a lot so you're disagreeing . i mean for more than twenty five years and you can be as many as you want but he's not from twenty five it is from twenty fourteen you accuse prime minister nothing in gulzar of making fake right wing noises about wanting to destroy hamas in quote a quest for votes so forgive me if i ask you is this latest attack a quest for votes to quote yourself so i am giving you an answer we did not. the first one to launch a missile. on five pm in the morning you will see that the fact and the other thing you know is a hundred eighty nine palestinians last year let me ask about the peace process
11:27 pm
so-called on monday u.s. president donald trump signed an executive order recognizing the annex the golan heights as part of israeli territory in complete defiance of u.n. resolutions your prime minister reacted by saying quote everyone says you can't hold an occupied territory but this proves you can does that mean does that mean that the occupied west bank can now be annexed through does not apply to the occupied west bank as well. we are grateful for president important decision then we are grateful for the leadership he showed the golan heights for nineteen years with the use by the syrians to attack our communities in the northern galilee and then when we took over the grand heights in nine hundred sixty seven it became stable became quiet and you have been eighty one the u.n. condemned you including the ronald reagan administration now as you say trump is backing you i'm wondering are you now going to annex the west bank as well because you have trump support you don't you're a supporter of annexation of you you personally i'm not i'm not familiar with the
11:28 pm
president i'm not asking about president trump i'm asking about the israeli government is the israeli government going to annex the west bank yes or no it's a very simple question so i'm answering you that i'm not familiar with the plan to do it and i now we are waiting to hear from by the round two peace initiative to discuss it and the palestinians who don't even want to look at it we respect the work that is being done in washington about that and respect any mission but if you're palestinian and you're at the u.n. ambassador danny danon comes to talk why would they want to talk with you when you're on record on this travel in fact a few years ago there is place only for one state on the land of israel i do not believe in a two state solution turn it down on the first of the don't come to negotiate with me the negotiate over the top israeli diplomat at the u.n. your views don't matter and even then even the prime minister when he wants to meet with president abbas it's not happening and by the way prime minister netanyahu
11:29 pm
said he's willing to negotiate everything he said i would come to the room and willing to speak about everything and you should have the prime minister agree and you support the prime minister on the. absolutely do you supported your state solution government do you support a two state solution. negotiation you want to do now is exactly with none other than israeli governments formal position is a two state solution they claim prime minister now claims to support a two state solution do you his ambassador to the united nations yes or no very some. negotiations are going to go see just what do you support a two state solution at the end of those negotiations like the rest of the world like your prime minister claims to yes or no. i support the things that men tend to have their best not what i'll study it i don't know. why it's so complicated to say i do so but i do that initially because i don't support a two states i tell you why tell you why because the u.n. i'm used to countries mainly trying to come to the end of the conflict without
11:30 pm
having a dialogue without getting your own judgment on its position on i'll give it pretty well as anybody the israeli government claims to support a two state solution but you clearly don't because you won't say so on the show. that way if you want to have any progress in the middle east the palestinians should stop the incitement stop the payments for five hundred million dollars a year and enter the room and go she without directly they can come to the u.n. they should i go if you're the person who doesn't say he supports a palestinian state can palestinians really do a peace deal with a prime minister benjamin netanyahu who is facing indictment on multiple charges of bribery fraud breaches of trust he's as likely to end up in prison as he is to win the next election in our democracy you will innocent until it's proven that you are guilty and the prime minister like everybody else in the country has their rights to go and to pool. i'm not disputing his right and i'm not disputing any of the i'm
11:31 pm
saying that he is facing indictment according to the attorney general of your country on multiple charges of bribery fraud breaches of trust that's pretty bad that's not a normal thing i know we've got used to political corruption in some parts of the world but that is not a normal thing to have a prime minister charged with so many crimes or about to be indicted for something . you have to wait because he's going down yet tony general says that coming your own country's attorney general says that coming. you mean. you will do. ok another reason the palestinians might say they have no faith in you and why the why the international community is so worried about prime minister netanyahu aims is that you have a prime minister of israel who supports the arab racists and has even supported bringing them into his own government i'm referring here to the jewish power party or who did it whose leader calls himself a contest which is a terrorist group in the united states and who himself has been for running for
11:32 pm
office by israel's own supreme court just last week because of his anti racism. i'm amazed from your passion marty i haven't heard you or anyone else in your network speaking about the hamas leadership or about the article that's not true i got it out i've actually had a most people on the show know i'm going to interrupt you how much people have come on the show and i've challenged them on their intolerant language i'm asking you about the prime minister of israel you claim to be a liberal democracy allying with anti arab racists can you please deal with that point so as a strong democracy we have rules and the rule of law is above all the supremes called to cite decided to disqualify one of the members of the least want to become a member of the knesset used to be a member of knesset because he used their comments and by the way they disqualify and the jewish radical member of the knesset and they did not disqualify their alexander were very radical as well fair enough you are not going to get into the
11:33 pm
last thing about iowa governor i'm asking you are you ok with the prime minister of israel allying with a party that backs the contests a terrorist group the box a partner wants to bring into government a party so extreme that this little was done for money. let's not stick to the fact the prime minister never said that he wants to bring them into the government is the prime minister when you look at the story the prime minister for the last thirteen years and you can see the government he put together in the last thirty years. so he's not resigning saccharin jewish woman jewish power in cabinet as has been reported widely in the israeli press. i haven't heard that for those radical. mention but at the end members of congress are being elected in israel and we should let the public decide who they want to be in the knesset the american jewish committee the a.j.c. apac the lobbying group you spoke out this week your strongest allies in the u.s. have called jewish power
11:34 pm
a racist and reprehensible party why is the prime minister dealing with this party why is he welcoming them why is he allowing them to do in union with the jewish home the prime minister said one thing that. you know one for the knesset like a dramatically our parties are allowed to run for the knesset and the superior court is the one to decide whether you are allowed to run or not to allow to and you didn't say that they will be part of the government if you don't say more than that you want to respond up the ante whose leader has called for the expulsion of arabs another party whose leader said there should be segregated maternity wards between palestinian and jewish mothers you're not embarrassed linking it with simultaneous. our democracy allows radicals to be in the knesset in the parliament when i would have. heard. supporting hamas supporting so. we accepted that it was uncomfortable for us but we
11:35 pm
allowed that this is demands of our democracy and it goes both ways if you can allow our. country to be in the knesset you can allow law to come from the right to be in the knesset but i don't. limit the the line you keep talking about radicals right at apac this week you spoke at the apac convent policy conference in washington d.c. you were attacked u.s. democratic congresswoman ellen omar for her controversial criticism of apac some of what she's apologized for you said quote if you have people that use that kind of language eventually i think the public needs to remove them from office some would say danny down on shouldn't the same apply to you you've called african asylum seekers in israel infiltrators you've called them a national plague you've called for them to be expelled nothing in how o'mara said it's come anywhere near to that kind of dehumanizing rhetoric that you've used. so are some of the quotes you mention are not correct but that's. correct i think i see in this fact that you have anti-semite in congress the public should decide
11:36 pm
whether they should continue or not they mean if the public saw that i'm my views are not correct they wouldn't elect me again and again and again and i think today when we see what's happening in the us when you have radicals is going anti-semitic language and speaking of the jews here i mean do our loyalty this is embarrassing i mean isn't an embarrassing when you refer to african asylum seekers as infiltrators and a national plague so i don't think i said what you just mentioned and then you will find it i would be happy to everything is digital today you shouted out a rally in twenty twelve in south tel aviv as are all the arabs the infiltrators are a national plague and we must uphold them translational i regret those comments and surely i'm sure if you have a two day technology i would be very happy if you can show that when i say that everything is taped today so you cannot deny it i don't recall saying what you just quoted yes it was reported you knowledge about everything which is reported is true
11:37 pm
but i think yes we should allow the public to decide about that when you have entered a semites in congress i think we should expect that the public will push them away isolate them and denounce them cutting down on thanks for joining me on that front . thank you very nice body. after a twenty two month long investigation into one of the most obsessive lee covered stories in the us media the special counsel investigation into possible collusion between the trump campaign and the russian government in the twenty sixteen u.s. presidential election is now over and according to trump's attorney general the president is in the clear no collusion no obstruction of justice but is that the full story don't we need to see the full robert muller report or was this just a massive failure by the trump media joining me to debate this our journalist in russia great critic aaron maté who's called the collusion allegations and conspiracy theory and david cay johnston
11:38 pm
a pulitzer prize winning journalist and author of the book it's even worse than you think what the trumpet ministration is doing to america david aaron thanks for joining me in the arena david can i start with you it looks like it's all over apparently robert mala did not conclude that anyone in the trunk campaign quote conspired or coordinated with the russians in interfering in the elections that was supposed to be the main purpose of the investigation trump has been given the all clear you in the media the democrats you got it all wrong well actually bill bars latter. trump is not exonerated on obstruction of justice and he blames the issue of collusion in terms of the russian government the russian government operates often through all of darksome cut outs and other people who aren't directly the russian government so we need to see the moller report you've repeatedly called the russia great story a conspiracy theory is it now all done and dusted for you or does david have
11:39 pm
a point. well i certainly agree with david that we should see the full report but the fact that we haven't seen it yet i don't think should be used to deflect from the fact that muller has just permanently debug the conspiracy theory his mandate was to uncover ties between trump and the russian government in a bid to influence the two thousand and sixteen election the bar report makes clear that he did not and i don't think that bar was macare was amiss characterizing robert mueller robert muller who has the integrity. of a marine we've been hearing about for two years about how great he is i don't think robert going to sit by so i think is the fact that here's what i don't get out of it as you say we've been hearing about him being a marine in great integrity for a couple of years but i follow your twitter through you and i to a column line you be one of the big critics of people who've been digging up for two years until he suddenly says something you agree with a now you're saying well we don't need the full report to come to a conclusion that this is all done in what you said last july and i quote you. we
11:40 pm
should not just believe well as claims now on faith without concrete evidence that's exactly what you've been doing since sunday isn't it. i've been believing that if robert muller had found evidence of a conspiracy he certainly would legit he would indict somebody for it and in a report in which he's investigating a trump was a conspiracy if you found evidence of it he would say that there was a temperature conspiracy but he says in his report that he found no that there was no collusion found and obviously i am waiting to see the full report i can't wait to see the underlying evidence i just don't think it's going to provide people with the with the fuel for the narrative that they're thinking i think that even if anything ok what do you mean credibility david if people in your side of the argument to put it crudely how did so over reg putting on us cable news and elsewhere you went on t.v. a few weeks ago i believe called donald trump a criminal an agent that was absurd even before the report came out to suggest that
11:41 pm
yes i'd like i corrected that i didn't realize i'd said agent i said asset and i believe it is a little bit of a lot of negatives that even without reading i know i wasn't even signed a contract to work for russian intelligence that's over again even though what we know. in the meaning in the intelligence world of the asset donald trump is an asset he is what the old soviet called a useful idiot he has carried the water of the kremlin repeatedly on things like attacking nato and other positions now the world isn't black and white there's lots of grays in here but all these roads keep leading back to the kremlin and to russia but the underlying important point here is we only know what bill bars spin is on the facts bill barr without being dishonest can put a spin on this that helps the person who put him in office after he had addition for that point and that's what we need to focus on i am to miller or do you trust a man who was appointed attorney general specifically to undermine this whole
11:42 pm
investigation represents the most dishonest president probably in the history of the united states do you trust his full page summary of a several hundred page report i think he only quoted sixty full words from the mother report you trust him it's certainly not the final say and we have to see the full report i totally agree i have to respond to what david just said because i think it exemplifies a dynamic that underscores how problematic russia gate has been so i david says that trump is a useful idiot of the kremlin and repeatedly does their bidding in this effort to sustain our conspiracy theory that trump and russia are in cahoots we have ignored all the actual things that trump has done against russia all of which have seriously escalated tensions between these two nuclear powers pulling out of the i.n.f. treaty thereby setting off basically a new nuclear arms race trouble right now is trying to overthrow putin's ally in venezuela is trying to stop a vital german russian gas pipeline and he can go on and on and on that are you
11:43 pm
know what all those are all good at playing our air i'm david baron i agree with the world is not black and white donald trump will do things that are contradictory all people do the world isn't black and white and keep in mind donald trump is totally incompetent. to be president so when you look at his actions what you were argument there again or if you know all that let me add to that all of that let me introduce an argument here that you mentioned you know donald trump kind of the whole key stuff he's done in russia and you're right to raise that we've raised that on this show as well but on the other hand you also then have to knowledge the stuff he's done that doesn't make him look like a quote unquote useful idiot he stood next to vladimir putin in helsinki and said i trust president putin over my own intelligence agencies he says he didn't interfere in the election i agree with him surely our and by the way aren't you yourself spent the last couple of years pooh poohing the idea that the russians interfered in the election bubble of the manual now quoting to do a victory lap says that they did interfere so shouldn't you own the fact that david side got stuff wrong in collusion you got stuff wrong in russian interference in
11:44 pm
wiki leaks. look think about the merits of that argument just because a prosecutor might get it right on one thing doesn't mean that they got it right on the other you can't have me i mean you basically cherry picking to the bits you know i'm not sure you know what he just said was because he got to write all the stuff i agree with he doesn't mean he's going around the stuff so do you disagree with the other conclusion let me just be clear for our viewers do you disagree the conclusion mullah says specifically that they'd according to paul i do not think i do not disappear let me finish no determine that there were two main russian efforts to influence the twenty sixth election do you dispute that line from you know i don't dispute it so you are for the media suggesting that well no no a second minute first of all you're not characterizing my views of the last two years correctly and let me lay them out now my point is simply you have to assess each case on its merits i've assessed all the evidence to date for a trial conspiracy i've been arguing for two years that it's not there apparently felt the same ok all the available evidence i've seen undermines the case for it
11:45 pm
and now we have the conclusion from muller that it did not happen again i can't wait for the final report david briefly to respond to that i think there's a real simple issue here donald trump has the authority to make every word of this report public just the way the starr report was entirely made public why isn't he using his power to do so that's all we need to know the less we see every word of that report. why are we seeing it when donald trump has the power to release a report that he claims exonerates you are in is not we have to define donald trump and i have a report that gives me complete and total exoneration as he tweeted earlier this week why they go into such desperate lengths to say it'll never be published you'll never see you'll just get a ball summary why it's way there but they're not saying that maybe they're not saying that trungpa said he wants the four report released and bara said they were going to release that they're going to. turn intelligence you know very well right now republican senate is going out of their way rand paul just this week mitch mcconnell to block the publication of the full report you know that aren't. blocked
11:46 pm
the democrats are going to drive now to make it public ok listen i would love for trump right now to make the fall for why isn't what i don't want to listen to what you know the the official story is that they're going to get really don't you know are you i don't care about the official story why do you think he hasn't released the report because i think they're going through right now to redact parts that they feel are sensitive we've heard about what a sensitive counterintelligence investigation this is so i'll tell you what they're saying about redacting sensitive parts is plausible i mean i can't prove we are going to add all faith in the drug administration iran military david cay johnston thank you both for joining me in the arena we'll have to leave it there this debate is certainly not over that's our show up front will be back next week. they said what do you think of waterboarding i said i think we absolutely need it
11:47 pm
we should have an adequate attack we should have more people in power investigates the private companies in rural towns and legislate complicit in the illegal use of torture under interrogation the sun will rise once a day and then sets not if you're in the hands of the cia you can make the sun shine or not rendition you visited. on al-jazeera and london put it well on. u.s. and british companies have announced the biggest discovery of natural gas in west africa but what to do with these untapped natural resources is already a source of heated debate nothing much has changed they still spend most of the days looking forward to for the dry river beds like this one five years on the syrians still feel battered or even those who managed to escape their country haven't truly been able to escape the war. rewinds continues to care bring your people back to life. with. documentary.

11:50 pm
you for joining as a teenager has been killed and more than two hundred palestinians injured during protests in gaza the seventeen year old was hit in the face with a tear gas canister fired by israeli forces tens of thousands have gathered at the fence that separates gaza from israel to mark a year since the start of weekly protest known as the greats march of return israeli soldiers have also fired and live ammunition into the crowds on the gazan side and hundreds of people turned out for the funeral of mohammed saad the twenty one year old palestinian died on saturday after being shot while protesting near the barrier fence a day earlier on a city and demanding the right to return to their lands from which they were expelled violently during the founding of israel in one thousand nine hundred forty eight they also want an end to israel's twelve gaza let's go live to carry fossett
11:51 pm
now who's on the guys that israel friends ari bring us up to speed with what's been happening one death reported so far how tense is a situation where you are. well it is now winding down and he probably see in the background that this protest here east of gaza city at least is in its final phases but as you say there was one fatality here seventeen year old mara we saw some of his friends released a group of people who were close by him when he was brought in on a stretcher with a very bloodied face and they showed us images of that it seems that he was struck directly by an israeli t. a gas canister and that is what killed him however aside from obviously that that's a terrible instance for him and everybody in his family and those who know him the ship the numbers aren't the same as what we might have expected from a similar scale protest the kind that we've seen over the last twelve months that
11:52 pm
is because on the one side the palestinian organizing committee had been very clear about the kinds of instructions that they were giving to people no burning of tires no use of in century kites or balloons staying back from israeli fire on the other side it does seem that the israeli snipers were firing less often than we might have expected it's a similar similar events i've at least reported from over the past year there were instances of live ammunition being used on several occasions when small groups did run to the fence we saw bloss by the fence of the kind we've seen before when i.d.'s have been planted on the fence and so it was an entirely peaceful. violence free. instance a given that they're having more than two hundred palestinians injured right in the course of the day however the scale of it is much lower than usual and they've been
11:53 pm
at f.m.c. in recent days have to try and get some kind of agreement between israel and hamas what would any deal mean for the people of gaza for the people who've been protesting for a year now what would it change. yes we've heard from a yes in one of the the gaza chief of hamas saying that these border protests will continue until the entire blockade is lifted we've heard from the organizing committee saying that next friday's protest will continue that it will be called a victory of dignity so this is not an end phase to these protests just yet but it could be the start of a significant agreement between israel and hamas that's what was being reported on friday night and the reports coming out were that there would be concessions such as increased in an electricity flow and increased range that fishing boats could go to out to twelve nautical miles from nine increased money coming in from cancer for
11:54 pm
hamas up to forty million dollars a month from fifteen and guaranteed until the end of the year none of this is being confirmed by israel which is seeking calm on the border an end to rocket fire i mean it is it could be a significant easing of the restrictions and those will be welcome but we spoke to one teacher here who saying that after a year of these protests that isn't enough you have to understand the human syrian situation the human rights that have been violated here during the course of that year so how much will have to try to sell this to its own people as will benjamin netanyahu the israeli prime minister to his people if indeed we do get real progress on this deal we understand that hamas wants to set a timetable for the implementation of those concessions as early as tomorrow and that harry fossett reporting there live from the gaza israel fence that speaks to more about this not to yarra how ari who is
11:55 pm
a writer and palestine policy phenol for. the palestinian policy network she's live from ramallah in the occupied west bank thank you so much for being with us first of all how do palestinians in the west bank keen about the beast protest in gaza that have been going on for a year now the feeling disconnected from all of this. yeah i think there is a huge. disconnect geographic sort of disconnect between the west bank and gaza to me but today there were demonstrations and activities in some places not only in recognition of these protests that have been going on for over a year but also important to commemorate land day is a very important political commemorative day in the in the palestinian calendar and it's a day that should be started. all these protests in gaza. of the protests chose that day to march to begin the great march of the time because it's
11:56 pm
a date that connects palestinians everywhere whether they be in haifa in or in gaza or even in exile but a year on what have the great march of return protests achieved for palestinians. well i think in the beginning they were a source of great inspiration to see such mass mobilization. and such bravery and courage from from so many people in gaza with something really inspiring to see in a lot of palestinians proud and connected certainly at the beginning there was a lot of responses from palestinians in the milan and they were organized campaigns and protests in support of their brothers and sisters but i think now it's really become a manifestation of despair we have one year on hundreds of palestinians have been shot dead in cold blood thousands and thousands have been injured and the situation in gaza has not gotten better that's actually getting worse the siege is continuing
11:57 pm
now it's a twelve years and it goes there has been occupied for over fifty so actually i think now there is a great deal of desperation and despair right a long term cease fire deal as we've heard our correspondents report there is in the words between hamas and the israelis reports of a lot of progress being made to what extent is the leadership in that a west bank in the occupied west bank sidelined from all of this and if a deal is agreed what would it mean for the hamas fatah rivalry would it boost hamas his position these are the fatah. well i think it just highlights the the sort of entrenched split between. hamas which of course is one of the major stumbling blocks in palestinian politics and i think it's something that palestinians really need to focus on the moderates reconsideration but the
11:58 pm
leadership in ramallah does not seem to be interested in the. i don't think it's on the horizon the split continues to be continues to be entrenched and there are various other. that want to see that split continue i don't think there are many people. truly interested in reconsideration thank you very much for sharing your views with us. how are you from the palestinian policy network joining us there from ramallah in the occupied west bank. well let's find out what people are saying about the great march of return protests here's sarah hierarchy social media producer what are people saying our lives are well the tweet us i want to show you this tweet because it actually sums up the sentiment amongst palestinians online to remind the world of their demand to implement u.n. resolution one thousand four they say to our palestinian refugees to return home now these are the hash tags that are being used you have land day and great march
11:59 pm
of return both by the way are being treated of course in arabic as well as english and the medical charity doctors without borders says the march of return protesters have been abandoned says after a year of protesting weekly now its policies have been left to the lifelong injuries caused by the israelis and call authorities on both sides to improve the situation in gaza now let me just give you an idea of the numbers we're talking about here because you'll find this actually on our website we've also tweeted if you want to have a look and this year alone in the last three hundred sixty five days you've had two hundred and sixty six palestinians are been killed during those protests and more than thirty thousand have been injured and while the palestinians are sharing these statistics on social media of course we're seeing other stats are coming out of the israelis on twitter now they have been sharing their own figures with their version of the gaza protest and they're calling it violent riots doesn't mention any deaths
12:00 am
or injuries on the israeli side but look at these figures here because it shows you a summary of the different types of rockets fired bombs and even i e d's that they say have been launched from gaza and this image has been circulating also amongst israelis commenting on the use they say of items that you can just see there and they're saying that the people in the gaza protests are actually using them as weapons and the hash tag that they have put for that is not a peaceful protest and this person is actually asking does this look ok to you but . on the palestinian side we're seeing so this picture that's being shared because palestinians are commemorating land day and these are the six people that were killed in forty three years ago actually at a demonstration against the israeli seizure of thousands of acres of palestinian own land in galle land i was a moment that changed the palestinian movement and the rights of palestinian refugees to return to their ancestral land off to be expelled by the israelis in
12:01 am
one thousand nine hundred forty eight and actually the main reason for the protests in gaza nine nine hundred forty nine a year later when israel joined the united nations.
