12:00 am
the palestinians have rejected out of hand the u.s. administration's $50000000000.00 economic proposal it was on veiled by senior white house adviser jared at a conference in bahrain on tuesday thousands of palestinians meanwhile have been marching in protest in gaza and the occupied west bank they say they won't trade their rights for money palestinian leaders have already boycotted the me saying and israel was not invited the elephant in the room and of course the occupation itself. is the israeli occupation which was never mentioned not once with all its manifestations including land including theft of resources. of palestinian funds and system of daughter can control and of course the steps and violence on them and the siege of gaza the constant military.
12:01 am
vests nonetheless says this economic plan of his is an opportunity of the century that's what he calls it for palestinians and the 1st step towards a political solution to the israeli palestinian conflict saudi arabia and the u.a.e. they both say that they will back the proposal 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. all right let's go live to gaza now our correspondent there is rob matheson and rob the people of. the occupied west bank as well but the people of gaza in
12:02 am
particular seem to be enraged by this proposal of their $50000000000.00 investment plan. that's absolutely right monsignor i mean this is the 2nd day of protests we've seen in gaza when people have been voicing their opposition to the baccarin conference we had a general strike on tuesday in the early part of why this is you mentioned there was a large scale protest to the center of gaza city right now just. about a kilometer or so from the israeli border and we've got another meeting this one entitled to confronting the deal of the century but then my message is pretty much the same we had a hamas official who was speaking to listening to the crowd earlier saying that the militants were able to undermine the conspiracy and it had the strength of resistance to be able to deal with this you know hama security has been tightened to keep people away from the border busy as they've been drifting down hamas does not want to have a confrontation with israel at this time but people very concerned as you do saying
12:03 am
that this u.s. economic deal is basically an attempt to distract them from their demands of a right to return to the ground that they believe belongs to them and also the removal of restrictions and controls that have been put in place predominantly by israel now the conference in bahrain is due to end on what the palestinians are making a very clear that their anger with this situation is likely to continue all right. all right let's remind ourselves and what the palestinians actually want 1st they are demanding an independent state as part of a 2 state solution that was agreed in the 1993 oslo accords that deal also calls for contentiousness used to be negotiated and result within 5 years of the signing of the agreement. and these include the status of jerusalem how the syrian refugees illegal israeli settlements future borders as well as security arrangements where
12:04 am
they've been most of all efforts to bring peace to the region over the years but mistrust between israelis and palestinians have stored the peace process and during this time the building of illegal settlements has continued and u.s. president donald trump has declared jerusalem israel's capital that was just last year much to the anger of palestinians and much of the international community let's say to phyllis bennis is a fellow at the institute of policy studies she's also of understanding the palestinian israeli conflict a primer she's joining us via skype from washington d.c. thanks for talking to us again phyllis many people are pouring cold water in fact scorn and derision upon this plan that's been outlined by jared he's called it the opportunity of the century for the palestinians why do you stand on this. well certainly this is probably not ever going to happen the notion that there is going to be $50000000000.00 invested over 10 years in an area of land that is under the
12:05 am
complete control of a different government that is still occupied where israel controls everything about the borders about bringing in equipment about permits controls the land controls the settlement these really military is the force that is in control of all of the of the occupied palestinian territory under those circumstances there is no way that there is going to be $50000000000.00 worth of investment in new companies that are going to hire a 1000000 people which is the claim right so on one hand it's simply not going to happen the broader problem is that this is not designed for palestinian rights this is designed to divert away from palestinian rights to buy after the palestinians to urge them to essentially surrender the demand for rates and it goes far beyond the 2 state solution which many. listin ians believe in many outside observers believe as well is no longer a possibility whether it was a good or bad idea years ago there is no land left that is not already under
12:06 am
israeli control and where the us has not already said it would support i was really to let me ask you this do you think that tactically the palestinians have taken the right course when they are a refusing to engage with this manami investment meeting workshop i think it's being called so they're not engaging that be they're not engaging with the broader administration apparently wanting to sit out donald trump and there's always a danger of course they could be reelected in 2020. there is a danger bad danger i think that one of the things we have to recognize is that the palestinians who make their own judgment this isn't for me to do to judge their tactics i think that what's key is that there has been a recognition that this administration has proven whatever its rhetoric whatever. questioner or 3 men or any of the others say about we stand with the palestinian
12:07 am
people they stand against palestinian rights through their actions when the u.s. essentially gives jerusalem to israel and says you have full control when it says that the illegally occupied golan heights belongs to israel as president trump did and then said to a group of wealthy jewish republicans i have i spoke with your prime minister as if he was assuming that these jewish americans were somehow israelis that netanyahu was their prime minister in an extraordinarily anti-semitic remark we might say this recognize this is a way of recognizing where this administration stands on the question of palestinian rights there is no concern for palestinian rights in this administration and by attending i think they would have given credibility to this meeting which is designed far more for u.s. interests. in the region particularly the interests that have to do with bringing israel saudi arabia the u.a.e. together in this anti iran coalition this can't be separated from what we see
12:08 am
underway in the region right now where the u.s. is going to great lengths to ratchet up the pressure on iran in a very dangerous way and not do so in collaboration with this grouping i wish we could talk for longer sadly time is against us phyllis bennis thank you so much thank you we've got a lot more to come on this al-jazeera news hour including the image of a father and his daughter that's putting migration in the u.s. sharply in focus. and in sport it is most solemn under too much pressure to perform peter will be here with the latest from the africa cup of nations. that harrowing photographs of a father and his daughter who drowned in a river on the us mexico border the rio grande day is highlighting the dangers that
12:09 am
migrants face as they try to reach the u.s. last year more than 200 people were killed are trying to make the often deadly crossing the torah gave him the reports now and a warning some viewers may find the images in her report disturbing. martinez and his 23 month old daughter valerie a died last weekend crossing from mexico to the united states a journalist who works for a mexican newspaper found their bodies on monday she hopes the photographs she took will focus international attention on migration to the u.s. where you can make one more your in extent in more or it was something that moved me deeply because it showed that up until her last breath she was joined to him not only by their shirts but also in that embrace and which they passed together and today. 25 year old martinez was from el salvador he was crossing the rio grande with valerie on his back tucked inside his t. shirt when they were swept away by strong currents his wife was waiting on the
12:10 am
mexican side of the shoreline and survived. them something bad like this happen before you see the river and it appears very calm i think that's why the father thought he could cross but the rio grande has a lot of deep powerful currents downstream. earlier this month mexico agreed to tighten its southern border with bottom on a after president donald trump threatened to impose tariffs on mexican goods critics say the new measures have led to migrants taking even more dangerous and isolated routes. page aggressive martinez and his daughter a reminiscent of another tragedy that made headlines 4 years ago the image of alan cody's body washed up on a turkish beach sparked global outrage he was a 3 year old syrian refugee the images of martinez and his daughter may have a similar impact serving to highlight the plight of those fleeing war and poverty in central america victoria gate and be al-jazeera. live now to washington and our
12:11 am
correspondent there wasn't jordan and roles that picture's going around the world and people of quite horrifying well sort of impact is it having in the united states itself. well the reaction is following along partisan political lines here in the us democratic representatives in the u.s. congress have said that this shows just how destructive the trumpet ministrations migration policy is and that people are risking their very lives to try to come to the united states for a better way of life their republican counterparts are saying that this proves that people are taking an unnecessary risk that the more effort should be put into trying to help the migrants home countries improve the security and economic situation in their country so that people don't feel compelled to try to reach the
12:12 am
united states of course all of this is happening as both the u.s. house and the u.s. senate are debating similar bills on providing about 4 to have $1000000000.00 in humanitarian aid to deal with the growing numbers of migrants who are along the us mexico border but it's not clear that this legislation will actually be reconciled and then signed by the president because the democratic house wants more restrictions on how that money can be used then does the senate version of the legislation but certainly there is a lot of public awareness martain of this incident involving martinez and his little girl on the rio grande day in the last couple of days all right thank you for that reason and correspondent in washington thank you right now we can speak to chris a boy and he is a spaceman's full of the u.n. high commission for refugees he's joining us live from washington as well thanks
12:13 am
for talking to us now you advocate on the positive of refugees all scott martinez and he still said we don't know what they are refugees it will they migrants and does it matter. well i think there is no person that i know of that can't look at that photograph. not be absolutely heartbroken that photograph really captures something essential about the fragility the preciousness of every human life and what we know is that there are people on the move in this hemisphere from central america now for a wide variety of reasons but what that photograph really does capture is a failure by all of the countries of the region to really address some of the things that are happening in parts of central america that are that are causing people to flee when we many of them are in need of real protection absolutely i mean we know that there is extraordinary levels of violence and pull the tea as well which is driving so many of these people out of the homes in central america
12:14 am
but the responsibility is falling upon the united states what should they be doing with regard to people who are trying to cross illegally because these are the people that the top administration seem to be aiming at ghent and the people who are not crossing officially. well you know 1st of all the situation as it is evolving in this part of the world at the moment is one that no one country can or should be asked to address alone that is why my organization u.n.h.c.r. has recently called for an urgent meeting of states throughout the region to begin to really map out some operational solutions it's clear to everybody that there are some very serious and very real operational challenges on the border between mexico and the united states at the moment but it is incumbent on all countries of the region to work together in a coordinated way to address those challenges in ways that are humane that are secure and that are efficient and there really is not another option for that so
12:15 am
that's what we support while it may be incumbent upon these countries to take a certain amount of risk responsibility but if they don't there are no there are no punitive measures that you can take against them that mean the americans are basically doing their own thing they've cooked a. some kind of deal with the mexicans for now but i mean you can't compel countries to step up and deal with refugees and migrants in a responsible and humane way can you. well the united nations in any given u.n. agencies such as ours is not in any position to compel any country to do anything we serve at the pleasure of the member states of the united nations and what our job is is to bring to bear our experience from around the world with our $16000.00 staff and $130.00 countries over many decades and offer that guidance and that expertise to countries in this region at the moment in order to support them and to help them do what they have said they want to do in the 1st place that is our job
12:16 am
we can't compel anybody to do anything else chris thank you very much indeed for talking to us live from washington chris represents the refugee agency of the u.n. thank you. thank you still to come here on the news hour why are dozens of crew miners in south africa refusing to come out from underground. and in sports painting the town orange trends take a very at the women's world cup. no sign of any right in the forecast across much of the middle east we have got some wet weather just around the caucasus and between the black sea and the caspian sea a little low cloud it just slipping a little further south was on me in the azerbaijan georgia seeing some of that
12:17 am
cloud and rain but the most obvious elsewhere already 4748 celsius the kuwait city and for baghdad pleasant sunshine across the eastern side of the med will get up to around $2829.00 celsius for beirut and jerusalem over the next couple of days is that right still continuing across the far north east of turkey pushing across towards the caspian sea elsewhere hot sunshine 32 celsius for kabul we get up to 34 in karachi houses still across the right in peninsula here in doha 43 celsius and rising friday will see however around 46 degrees possibility of some spots of right now which was the western part of saudi arabia but essentially hot and dry does sum it up not so much right in the forecast across southern africa laws clear skies a little bit of cloud just getting through the southern cape you might just catch want to coastal showers i think the majority of any coastal showers will be reserved for that eastern side of madagascar elsewhere this warm sunshine all the

way back with a high of 70. in the shared new immigration laws and projects funded by european governments have seen a rapid decline in the migrant transport 3 people in power travels to agadez to explore the realities faced by the drivers left out of pocket and the migrants who are choosing to return home who would like to go back to the country where they are from you know to be getting more easy going back to the one who might not want to leave yet. europe migration on a. examining decade dining scientists are telling us that we have just 12 years to make one person any changes. unflinchingly journalism to. be sharing personal stories with a global audience we see people making sacrifices this is what i want to see
12:19 am
explore in abundance of world class programming. the world is watching on al-jazeera. targets take a look at the top stories here in the al-jazeera news hour a u.n. special investigators called for a criminal inquiry into saudi arabia's crown prince mohammed bin sound and one of his main advisers over the murder of journalist jamal khashoggi the saudi envoy to the un human rights council in geneva accused agnes of being prejudiced jamal khashoggi was killed inside the kingdom's consulate in istanbul last october.
12:20 am
palestinians have rejected the u.s. administration's $50000000000.00 economic proposal thousands of palestinians marched in protest singles and in the occupied west bank white house adviser jared krishna who are in veiled the proposals at a conference in bahrain called it an opportunity of the century. now a german charity ship with $42.00 migrants on board has entered italian waters 3 says it decided to land in lump a days because the situation situation on board was so desperate now this move comes after is it his interior minister salvini the ship from its forces saying it will be seized see what's said that the my. i would simply come desperate after the european court of human rights on tuesday rejected their appeal to be allowed to disembark initially but we can speak to chris good adult skee who is
12:21 am
a spokesman for the sea watch group that's the german ship and he's joining us from berlin via skype thanks for talking to us this is a very very dangerous proposition then isn't it that the ship enters into waters of a country that have expressed the said don't well yes but we have the situation before with italy has tried to borrow from entering intelligent waters for quite a while now for over a year they have already seized other ships and also our ship has been seized a couple of times for a short while for 2 or 3 weeks but has always been released after this time because never there was in the. any legal grounds to hold it for longer of so we have always acted in accordance with international law when we rescue people in the mediterranean and therefore there is no reason for actually seizing our ship even though you know made a new decree trying to use this procedure to seize our ship right so what will
12:22 am
happen then seeing as you've done this before what will happen to the 42 and i imagine rather desperate migrants there having spent 13 days at sea what happens to them. well what happens to them is that they will hopefully do disembark very soon to the court of law to do so usually like last time which is only a couple of weeks back we wouldn't enter the point of law producer but the italian coast guard aboard in this case. where we have entered national waters already in a state of necessity they would send a boat to then pick up these people from our boat bring them to lampedusa bring them to the hot spot that is there where there are already hundreds of people who have arrived to the mediterranean on their own so. that will hopefully happen to the people very soon so they are unmanned they are safe and they can recover from the. journey they have behind themselves right and so is this this is the main
12:23 am
occupation then of the sea what charity i mean you you patrol the mediterranean in order to pick up people who. are in desperate straits there in tiny little dinghies or whatever that have a the chance don't look very precarious indeed is that your main mission yes but it's actually our own mission see what was on the 2050 with the only mission of trying to secure this. strip of see and actually the deadliest border in the world where thousands and thousands of people have lost their lives already in the last last years and we've been trying to to hold against this and we rescued over 37000 people in those 4 years. since we were founded so this is this is our one and only objective to rescue people from the stuff sensitive and who we don't. like we we're not the persons who are responsible
12:24 am
for taking care of all those people are. or how those people are distributed through europe that is the job of politicians in europe our job is to rescue people all right chris cornell ski thank you very much indeed for talking to us thank you very much now iran's supreme leader ayatollah ali has my name he says his country will change its stance following new u.s. sanctions which target him and other top leaders specifically the iranian president hassan rouhani today has rejected u.s. calls for talk saying he doesn't believe washington really wants to negotiate carcassi feed room or the our side that will mean me being involved than we can see that the white house is confused and saying false and nonsense and ridiculous things and choosing the wrong policy it's clear that regarding sanctions they reached the end some said americans want to talk without preconditions why don't you accept we prove it. well the united nations political affairs chief has warned
12:25 am
the security council that the worsening tensions between washington and tehran could have a significant impact on the existence of the around nuclear deal the u.s. says it won't extend waivers to allow some countries to import iranian oil the u.s. removes those waivers quite recently on 8 specific countries and iran has in turn threatened to take new steps to reduce its commitment to the deal let's go live now to the u.n. in new york our correspondent there is she had returned the say the the signs coming from the u.n. this top u.n. political affairs officer is that there's not a huge amount of optimism the conditions as a system the moments are terribly conducive to the continued existence of the deal itself. right but what are they going to do about it is the question this is incredibly mild criticism of the u.s.
12:26 am
in particular who as we all know and this is the if that's the main issue facing the security council has walked out of the j.c. p.o.a.'s basically basically put the boot into everything the u.n. security council is supposed to represent internationally mandated treaties international law the sanctity of the u.n. security council and all we got was a very mild statement of regret from the unsatisfactory drawer and statements of regret from the various council members that really showed how low the most security council members are to criticize the u.s. that's worth unpicking very briefly what the secretary general said through the undersecretary general but he said that the decision not to extend waivers with regard to trade in oil with iran and not fully renew waivers for nonproliferation projects may impede the ability of iran and other member states to implement the j c p a do you think i mean dealing at all io an economic benefit is a key part of the j c p a a these nonproliferation projects some of those waivers that the u.s. is now removed the ones that actually out allow iran to export its and richest
12:27 am
uranium to russia so it doesn't meet the threshold that it's allowed to have so basically these waivers completely destroyed the j.c. pierre and all we hear is regret the russian ambassador was a bit more pointed in his comments that he said look this is paradoxical because the u.s. is also getting most of the signatories of the j.c. peary not to implement the deal while insisting that iran does implement the deal and the u.s. has pulled out of it completely as he said you know even the most expert cryptologist will have a hard time trying to decipher what on earth the u.s. is up to right she had tansey live in new york at the u.n. thank you. now nato defense ministers are meeting in brussels assaulting 2 days of talks on security challenges top of the agenda russia's short range nuclear missile system nato says it will be forced to active moscow does not destroy the technology which is allegedly capable of striking europe without notice the dispute between
12:28 am
the u.s. and turkey will also be on the agenda of the anchor's decision to buy the s $400.00 russian missile defense system well washington has threatened to impose sanctions against turkey if that deal goes ahead the s 400 is not apparently compatible with nato systems and the u.s. says it may stop her from taking part in the f. 35 fight egypt project that turkey is a major manufacturer of the f. 35 parts meanwhile moscow is expected to deliver the s. 400 system to ankara by july let's go live now to that meeting in brussels at nato meeting of course when there is jonah hold the russians just earlier today a couple of hours ago again reiterating the fact that they are determined they're going to deliver the 1st installment of this s. $400.00 missile defense system to turkey i reckon they're going to be some strong words exchanged at the meeting where you are. well yes in
12:29 am
a sense that's already happened quite possibly there was a bilateral meeting a couple of hours ago on the sidelines of this defense ministers gathering at nato in brussels marty between the u.s. defense secretary acting marc esper in just his 3rd day on the job and he's turkish counterpart who lucy. no breakthrough evident as a result of that meeting by any means as you say at issue turkey's insistence on purchasing russia's missile defense system the s 400 system the americans very unhappy about that they see that as a threat a breach of security undermining overall nato missile defense they also warry the did it allows prying russian eyes to take a peek at nato technology in advanced weapon systems in particular this f. $35.00 stealth fighter program you were talking about there that in years to come will be equipping nato member states air forces across the border and turkey a big component of that while this meeting doesn't appear to have gone very well we
12:30 am
have a pretty anodyne statement from the turks not advancing in any way on their position the americans according to an unnamed defense of department official saying the secretary was very firm once again that turkey will not have both the f. 400 and the f. 35 if they accept the s 400 the russian system they should also accept ramifications not only to the f. 35 program but also to their own economic situation a pretty clear threat there that sanctions would bite as well and from the turkish side but we have the words of president urged on our today on tuesday he's pretty steadfast in his position here they will take delivery he believes in july the s 100 he said relates directly to our sovereignty we don't need permission to meet our own security needs and we will not be bowing to pressure so a big round of brewing here between 2 important nato allies the united states and turkey interesting to see how that pans out thanks very much for now dana. now

in your. own room doctors say the amount of garbage piling up of on the streets is becoming a real health hazard for both residents and tourists rubbish disposal is an age old problem in the italian capital in 2013 members left with no place to treat tons of garbage after the last site was closed people say there aren't enough bins and that the smell in the streets is overwhelming. now insects there are vital for the survival of the planet but researchers say there's been an alarming decline in their numbers they say pesticides are killing off many of the bugs lawrence lee has the story. one of the problems for insects is that humans don't tend to notice if they're there or not but if people don't start paying more attention than the consequences could be catastrophic for all of us in country after country in europe and beyond there is evidence of bees butterflies
12:36 am
months and other species disappearing that knocks on to the survival of birds reptiles and fish which live off the insects of the food chain it will inevitably affect humans they pollinate 75 percent of the crops that humans grow 87 percent of all plant species on the planet need pollinating. insects would disappear then most plants would go all flowers more or less would die they get rid of chi parts and dead bodies and keep the soil healthy and do a whole bunch of stuff so essentially life on earth as we know it would come to an end if we didn't have insects this part of england is only 60 kilometers south of london yet it looks like a refuge for wildlife but declining numbers seem to be everywhere measuring insect numbers isn't that straightforward as a motorway it's traditionally been done is by counting up bug splats on a car windscreen they used to be the case that if you drove around a part of england like this in the summer by the end of the day you windscreen
12:37 am
would be cakes well we've just spent most of the day in the car and there's barely a mark on it. the reasons for this are all known no farmers are usually blamed for the widespread use of pesticides in modern agriculture see actually when you spend more time you spend here the more you look and say there's 1st is no nicely everywhere while the u.k. is seen as badly affected farmers here argue this is still possible to protect insects in terms of crowd rights action is really important have that diversity in the landscape so you can see here we have cattle grazing in fields we have cropped so we have lots of different types of crops never have the same crop in the field twice and then really try and minimise the use of the inputs we use we really try to minimize the use of insect insecticides for example because clearly that's that's going to be good for the environment as we're having spikes around in all the trees in the hedge rows all the margins you say it's all that spice along saw growing food a recent global study of insect decline suggested numbers having every 25 years
12:38 am
that suggests it isn't too late to turn things around but in the u.k. at least the reason why people keep protesting is that it seems a priority for barely any politicians al-jazeera in sussex. new york yankees. baseball.
