9:02 pm
between palestinians and israelis but he wants a palestinian leadership to accept what washington is willing to offer he was speaking at a conference hosted by bahrain with several regional leaders the palestinian authority is boycotting the event and israel hasn't been invited by direct message to the palestinian people is that despite with those who have let you down in the past tell you president trump and america have not given up on you this workshop is for you the vision we developed and released if executed correctly will lead to a better future for the palestinian people a future of dignity prosperity and opportunity you can change your course for the positive if we are willing to try new things and think outside of the traditional box right and we'll talk to our correspondent in washington in just a little while 1st so let's find out about how palestinians have been reacting to
9:03 pm
this speech rob matheson is our correspondent in gaza and rob we knew the palestinians even before this got under way we knew they weren't really going to engage with it until boycotting the event from the get go any idea as to what the feeling is about the tone having been set by jared pusher. well even before john dickerson got up to speak in. going to leader of hamas the controlling group here in gaza was making a very impassioned speech to a group of palestinian faction leaders here in gaza city and reiterating the point that the palestinians have made ever since the details of this plan came out just a few days ago that there has to be a solution to this situation before an economic solution can even be discussed he described it as the common conference being dead already because it carried this seeds of failure it said that it was not to dictate the lives of palestinians let's
9:04 pm
listen to a little bit more about what he had to say. the conference held at the moment in bahrain is a political conference with an economic coverup it is totally a political event with the financial and economic camouflage simply for the reason that this conference and the deal called the deal of the century is aimed at achieving the following 1st to lay the foundation for terminating the palestinian cause sake and giving the green light to the zionist enemy to extend its occupation and control over the entire west bank. there was an interesting slight twist to that speech because essentially held out an offer of unity to members of the fatah party and now hamas and fatah have been a lot of heads for about 13 years since hamas took over the gaza strip a but this was an opportunity for ismail haniyeh to say to the leadership of fatah look let's come together and be unified and create almost
9:05 pm
a unity government in the face of this situation that we're facing in the face of this conference in rain and what that might portend we are expecting protests to be held here in gaza on the widen stage the conference in bahrain of course is going to end at the end of weight in the state but whether or not the fury that is currently being felt by palestinians is going to end at that time remains to be seen all right rob thank you for that robitussin live in go there now let's go to berlin in d.c. and bra's critics of the deal of the century has it's been dubbed by president trump have said that it's dead on arrival that you can't go steaming into some sort of economic plan. how large the sums involved without sorting out the politics how important is it for the white house that this plan get some traction. well it's important because it's been about 2 and
9:06 pm
a half years in the planning it was one of the early promises which donald trump made when he became u.s. president that there was a better way of resolving the tensions between the palestinians and the israelis and of course he had his son in law garrett cushion are put in charge of the project but this does basically ignore the tenets that had been put forth throughout the international diplomatic community on dealing with the core issues that could lead to 2 states israeli embattled standing in existing and what diplomats have routinely called exists co-existing in peace and in security dealing with israel's security concerns. it's dealing with the matter of palestinian refugees it's dealing with the legal status once and for all of the city of jerusalem and it's dealing with the question of all what the borders would be of a palestinian state and certainly there has been
9:07 pm
a real concern that the trumpet ministration is ignoring decades of international efforts to try to bridge the gaps between the israelis and the palestinians on these issues and there are some who are raising the question about whether economic development for the palestinian people can actually work when they don't have full control over the territory where they live so this is a real question of even though it's impressive that you might have the head of the i.m.f. christine lagarde there that you might have tony blair who has been the representative for the quartet which oversees these issues involving the israelis and the palestinians you have investment bankers you have venture capitals there but it's impressive you have all of these people there but you're not dealing with the fundamental issues which pretty much any middle east policy expert would say need to be addressed which is these 4 core issues all right thank you for that runs.
9:08 pm
correspondent who's in d.c. well now we can speak to. who is co-founder of electronic intifada that's an independent online news publication and educational rissoles which focuses on palestine he's joining us live via skype from chicago what did you make of the 10 set by jared christian. well the tone was sort of like an impatient but benevolent nanny patronize ing the palestinians you know he says oh we haven't given up on you as if it's the palestinians who are somehow being stubborn and refusing to to come along sitting on the floor crying and screaming and let's just anchor ourselves in reality jarrad cushion and the trumpet administration are the ones who as their 1st acts recognized israeli
9:09 pm
occupation an attic sation of jerusalem cut off all funding to under a u.n. agency that cares for the very poorest and most invulnerable busy holliston in refugees of all funding to palestinian hospitals in occupied east jerusalem the day of the lifesaving treatment indeed sadly who is he to come and say that he is just that the help that is just waiting for these stubborn palestinians to come along with him no i get exactly what you're saying but equally he pointed out that all of the policy initiatives the the vast challenges of money that have been injected into palestine he said that amounted to nothing it's time for a new thinking do you really believe that there is an opportunity perhaps for a new creative approach. well i mean look. all previous approaches have failed for the simple reason that not one single one addressed the
9:10 pm
core issue which is israeli military occupation settlement construction and the denial of the rights of millions of palestinians on a vast scale not one single peace initiative has ever dealt with that directly every single so-called peace initiative from the international community cobbles the israel and tries to get around the problem and perhaps a new approach would be it would be great but this isn't it because this this economic but as a reheating of failed ideas in the report it was mentioned that tony blair is is at this bar and conference for some reason well most of these ideas are recycled ideas that tony blair was pushing as core to quartet and foil a decade ago and they went nowhere then i i make a thought it's not yeah now ok i he would just say what of what do you think then
9:11 pm
needs to be in place 1st with jericho shoot himself said festival has to be peace what needs to be put in place in order for there to be peace before they can even think about creating a and investable environment. sure that's really simple an end to israeli military occupation settler colonialism enough oxide but that's never been on the table one has israel ever talked about ending its occupation of the west bank gaza strip in east jerusalem and syria's golan heights never the trumpet ministration isn't talking about it when has israel ever talked about giving full and equal rights to palestinian citizens of israel never what they did just last year was past the so called nation state law entrenching inequality entrenching discrimination that's why there's no peace that i mean jared pushed is talking as
9:12 pm
if there's no peace simply because the palestinians don't want peace there's no peace because israel runs a military dictatorship over millions of palestinians and the us supports it the prophet's ministration supports it the e.u. supports it but her and supports it by ho's think this conference novelty about the sorry to interrupt thank you very much indeed. took him to snuff and she caught it thanks a lot you almost well. well there are thousands of palestinian refugees living in lebanon and they know harder our correspondent has been speaking to some of them. the children of the $948.00 palestinian refugees now living in lebanon they're taking part in this demonstration to protest the conference taking place in bahrain which is this causing the trumpet ministrations middle east economic peace plan and people here are angry because they believe the trumpet ministration is
9:13 pm
pushing for a peace settlement that does not involve their right to return these refugees have been living in exile for 17 years now and they believe any solution to the israeli palestinian conflict house to involve the right to return to life is very difficult here they live in urban thomson very dire conditions and so the feeling here or the message from the manatees that palestine is not for sale no matter how much money you offer us we are not going to give up our rights to return home i was you know the whole of. the deal of the century in the rejection to the buffering summit eccles the thoughts of every palestinian around the world we stand behind the palestinian national leadership and its decisions we say no to the deal of the century palestine will not be sold we cling to our right of return to palestine we
9:14 pm
claim to the land of our ancestors this is our right till the end of time so you know. the deal of the century is not new for the palestinians are 5 who continue whether they agree or not we don't care about what's happening we have men and refugees in europe and all around the world and they will never let go of palestine everything that's happening now is nonsense our weapons are pointed at the zionist enemy and palestinians feel the united states is not an honest broker and they believe that its alliance with israel means that any settlement that they propose will be tilted in favor of the israelis and the question they ask here is that if they care so much about our economic conditions then why don't they live to see. on gaza and why did you as an illustration decide to cut funding to the united nations relief and works agency which is the only organization providing help to these people 11 on the host country is also not attending the battery conference in solidarity with the palestinians lebanese officials fear that the deal of the
9:15 pm
century of the so-called deal of the century will involve naturalizing and resettling palestinian refugees in the host country something that this country says it will not accept. we've got lots more to come on this al-jazeera news hour including quest for justice saudi journalist. appeals for an international investigation into his matter. why the u.n. says climate change will be particularly bad the poor communities around the world . and the wimbledon champion looks ahead to the defense of his title. is here with sport. no rain is iran rather is sounding defiant after the u.s. sanctions which targeted the top leadership including supreme leader ayatollah ali have been the terror on says it'll go ahead with its plan to reduce its commitment
9:16 pm
to the 250 nuclear deal despite the increasing pressure u.s. national security advisor john bolton he's won't all options remain on the table if iran continues to pursue its nuclear ambitions zain bazarov a report from the iranian capital tehran. in his 1st public appearance since iran shot down a u.s. surveillance drone last week president hassan rouhani did not hold back he said the latest sanctions targeting iran's supreme leader ayatollah ali khamenei are the irrational actions of a confused government to chortle know what they are suffering from mental disability the white house is afflicted with mental retardation and doesn't know what to do. the supreme leader occupies such a protected position in public life that in iran insulting him is illegal the u.s. applying pariah status to someone so highly revered has angered leaders into iran. and a lobbyist he is not only the leader of iran he is the leader of iran and those who
9:17 pm
love the revolution and all muslims. all around the world iran's leader doesn't only belong terror on many people in lebanon syria iraq afghanistan pakistan kuwait and everywhere shia and non shia love him follow him and obey him and someone who has lost his mind does such a stupid and strange thing and for. iran is under such sweeping sanctions that the latest american move is entirely symbolic but later this week washington has said it will add iran's foreign minister zarif to the sanctions list attacking the country's top diplomat is something to her and says permanently close is the path to diplomacy main enemy if you're being honest and want to negotiate simultaneously do you want to impose sanctions on the foreign minister so it is clear that you are lying as the u.s. continues its pressure campaign russia has vowed to help iran counter new u.s.
9:18 pm
sanctions if. iran has been and remains our ally and partner and we consistently develop our relations both bilateral and multilateral which means any attempt to portray tehran as a main threat to regional security or to bring it into line with isis or other terrorist groups is unacceptable to us. but some u.s. officials remain undeterred. the president has held the door open to real negotiations to completely and verifiable your women aid iran's nuclear weapons program its pursuit of ballistic missile delivery systems its support for international terrorism and its other malign behavior worldwide all that iran needs to do is to walk through that open door on tuesday foreign minister zarif said once again iran's religious views mean it will never pursue a nuclear weapon iran he also reminded people that america is the only nation to
9:19 pm
ever drop nuclear bombs on another country world leaders want cooler heads to prevail and washington keeps saying that it wants to calm things down through dialogue but the decision to sanction iran's supreme leader is something so insulting that for to one it might make a negotiated solution nearly impossible. to her own. and president trump went straight on to twitter he said iran's very ignorant and insulting statement put out today only shows that they don't understand reality and the attack by around on anything american will be met with great and overwhelming force and in some areas overwhelming will mean obliteration no more john kerry and that's how he ended it all right let's get to ali alpha name who's a senior fellow at the arab gulf states institute in washington and the author of iran veiled how the revolutionary guards are transforming iran from theocracy into
9:20 pm
military dictatorship that's a very interesting thought for sure we can't talk about that too much now 1st of all i'd like to get your thoughts on this latest round of sanctions being placed on the iranian leadership in particular the supreme leader designed more to to hurt and insult rather than to derive any real impact. here on the show the latest round of sanctions east truly symbolic. is not even designed to hurt the iran's economy earlier rounds of sanction the certainly did hit iran's economy particularly the balance banking sector and has severely restrict with iran's ability to export oil this time around i perceive it as an attempt by certain quarters certain individuals in washington who really want to prevent any kind of diplomatic negotiations between washington and tehran
9:21 pm
clearly you cannot expect the stomach or public to engage in negotiations with the united states at a time when its foreign minister is on their sanctions and other sanctions which is symbolic is that of sanctioning the supreme leader himself. iran has said that it's going to continue with its policy of disengaging if you like from the terms of the c.p.o. either nuclear deal or 2015 effectively when it starts to up the amount of uranium that it's emitting is that iran turning its back on the nuclear deal i'm walking away from it i see there's terence way of raising the stakes terrine is signaling that the maximum pressure campaign has not improved iran's behavior iraq is now acting more aggressively when it comes to the
9:22 pm
nuclear program and it is also possibly also a behind some of the acts of sabotage in attacks in the persian gulf region and in the world from oman so that is the message that tehran is sending to president trump if president trump desires to continue the maximum pressure campaign he should come to on terror on retaliate. which brings me to. a subject that you are particularly expert in given the title of your book and that is i mean there are different power structures aren't there within the iran i mean power is not conventionally from the top down. which particular branch of. government in power in iran is actually responsible for this policy is it the revolutionary guards would it be the supreme leader or would it be the president. i do see 3 major power centers within this lawmaker popping one of them being the
9:23 pm
supreme leader and the office of the supreme leader and then his system relies on 2 pillars one pillar is that of the professional bureaucracy of iran represented by president rouhani and his team of technocrats and the other pillar being that of the revolutionary guards over the years we have seen that there are bhushan of the gods is getting stronger and stronger and is practically transforming the regime into a military dictatorship however at times of extreme crisis particularly now that the regime is very existence is threatened by washington that we see that all 3 centers are actually getting together and i do not see any major differences between them when it comes to iran's foreign policy or security decision right ok so. there's also jews have sanctions slapped on him in a few days from now the iranians. suggest that that means that is definitely closing the door of any possible dialogue between washington and tehran but what
9:24 pm
about back channels do you have any sense as to there being. a form of communication going on between iran and the united states of america and if so who would be who would be handling that. i genuinely hope that responsible governments like that of japan like that of or mine and others who may be interested in mediating between tehran and washington are given a chance by both parties particularly by washington to play a constructive role they have played their role in the past and they may be the only chance that we have to prevent a terrible war in the middle east region right and what about the russians in the russians talking in west jerusalem today meeting with john bolton the u.s. national security advisor and the israelis of course not siding with the u.s.
9:25 pm
and israel supporting iran's claim that the drone the u.s. drone that was shot down was actually done so it really in space i mean backing iran it would seem at this crowd quite critical juncture. iran russia relationship is a love hate relationship devoid of love for iran has very little trust in moscow's programs plans and ambitious and every single time there has been a major crisis moscow has tried to marginalize iran and use iran as a bargaining chip in its own conflicts and negotiation is a word with washington's so i don't think ron is particularly optimistic and he's not really counting on russia huffing them and they almost expect russia to betray to iran then there is a major crisis right allie for me thank you very much indeed for talking to us.
9:26 pm
now the u.k. has issued new guidelines to companies selling weapons to saudi arabia that's after a british court ruled last week that the government broke the law by allowing arms sales to souder saudi arabia because of riyadh's involvement in the war in yemen the british government seeking to appeal against that decision and new export licenses will not be issued to companies trading weapons to saudi arabia to bahrain egypt the u.a.e. and kuwait let's say the andrew smith is a space of the campaign against the arms trade that's a group that she filed the case against the u.k. government is joining us live from london andrew thank you very much i don't really want to get into the last tuesday's judgment because i think we covered that rather well what is the detail then of this new guidance being given by the british government to come to companies that might want to trade in weapons to saudi arabia . of use new guidelines which have been brought in as
9:27 pm
a result of the government losing in court fees newgate lanes of curbs on any companies who are looking to export equipment to say d.p. or if you have are participating militaries in view ongoing war in yemen meanwhile the government has to retrospectively look at for licenses which it already granted for use in yemen and to me for his decisions again. while asking for correct questions and delivering the correct scrutiny i think last week's verity was a very important one in setting that precedent but ultimately we're not for woods yet we've got there's a lot more to do if we're going to end arms sales to say to leave you and you keep complicity in the war in yemen indeed the government has said that it's going to challenge that cool truth in that was the culture the pill wasn't it but it's so far away from a ban isn't it i mean this is the bottom line is that the companies will be ill
9:28 pm
could still in future trade in weapons with saudi arabia. well it means that all the weapons that are already with the military are away for so to military means that we can't undo any of the damage which has already been done but right now as we're speaking there can very well be u.k. made fater jets flying over yemen it will be firing u.k. made missiles and dropping u.k. made bombs however be government is not able to send any further bombs and missiles until it has carried a photo to view of the previous seals and certainly it's not great band but it certainly is something which will not have been welcomed by the u.k. government who were fated to finial it will not have been welcomed by the so do dictators ship and it will have been very bad news for the arms companies because for decades now you say to the pier has been by far the largest buyer of u.k. weapons anywhere in the world and do you think that ultimately at the end of the
9:29 pm
day there will this will lead to a raising of the threshold if you like before weapons are sold before contracts in licenses are signed. we certainly hope so because if a process for government doesn't fall with the process that the government has followed on arms exports to say d.b.f. for use in yemen has been unlawful invite is the exact same process we're followed when exporting to our countries as well we know from polling that the vast majority of people across the u.k. do not want to see arms exports to human rights abusing regimes and dictatorships but ultimately it's something which governments of all political colors have done i mean this is a legal question but it's also a political question and it will require political will to change it. and you say thank you very much indeed for talking to us live from london. thank you. since you come on this hour jazeera news hour the challenges facing albania is the european
