know you have a train to go for our feet making sure that there's always fun at these winter olympics day. twenty palestinians were injured in gaza on friday on the latest day of rage over the u.s. recognition of jerusalem as the israeli capital demonstrator said place burning tires on the israeli border and i.d.f. soldiers forced them back with crowd control weapons. was given to you and. you know. where the and where they were going to put them. meanwhile president trump has made it clear he will not back down on the jerusalem despite dispute the u.s. embassy in israel will be moved to to jerusalem on may fourteenth that is the date
in one thousand nine hundred forty eight when the state of israel was declared here's how president trump described his decision making process people calling begging me don't do it don't do it don't do it campaign against it was so incredible but you know what the campaign for it was also incredible and we did the right thing to put it simply trump said he doesn't care what the world thinks about his decision to move the embassy to jerusalem which actually supports israel's claims to the city but when he says the campaign against his decision was incredible he means this. earth i'm. not. even though trump doesn't care people in the region do today we saw clashes in
hebron continue which israel on the other hand is praising from its minister for transportation thanks trump in a tweet even called him a friend of a back in december in a security council vote of fourteen countries condemned to trump's recognition of jerusalem as israel's capital and including and among those were staunch u.s. allies like the u.k. and france and in the general assembly one hundred and twenty eight countries got the use of the veto obstructed the security council and unable to perform his duties and do de kids a work of the international community it is considered a blatant violation of the rights of palestinian people must be through negotiation between the two parties are un member state throughout and the other members this is bully. john boehner will not bow to the doc now despite international backlash the state department has notified congress that its embassy will be moved to jerusalem on may fourteenth which is much sooner than originally planned last month
a vice president can set the embassy would be moved by the end of twenty nineteen but like you said may fourteenth also happens to be the day israel declared its independence back in one nine hundred forty eight and it was the day president truman officially recognized the state but considering the international community's past response it'll be interesting to see how they react to this latest announcement. gideon levy a columnist for the israeli daily carrots believes lives are now likely to be lost because of this decision the united states is supporting the united states is really slipping in the face and spitting in the face of the palestinians moved he moved the embassy to jerusalem and in this say i declare jews in the east jews as the future capital of the president then i see it would be quite reasonable step there were tens of palestinians who live in the life for this for the first
declaration and unfortunately there will be more tense of palestinians who we pay in the life pay their lives but by the end of the day there will be another uprising another intifada not a single state would stand up against the american administration and nobody would take any measures and if we remain whole no lip service like many other services for the palestinians. an american magazine has been forced to to retract a story about a russian boxer that story much more still to come you're watching our two international.
and welcome back to the international newsweek magazine has retracted an article that described how russian bots were allegedly used to target a democratic senator from minnesota forcing him to resign and the american publication based its story on a blog by an activist group called the vote a group exclaimed that a sexual misconduct scandal involving senator al franken was cooked up by a fake twitter accounts based in russia but newsweek later admitted that was untrue and it seems some media outlets are eager to break stories of russian trolls no matter how dubious the sources are. earlier this week germany's bill that newspaper reported an e-mail exchange between a german politician and i suppose it russian agent who was offering his services to swing public opinion in germany the tabloid based its article on what turned out to
be a prank staged by a satirical magazine. i'm yuri i'd like to talk to you about supporting your new group code campaign thanks for your mail jail read submits expect a mile from you but just to be sure could you name me g.'s favorite beverage as you can certainly understand this is a delicate matter me oh me oh martin ginger oh dear europe perfect that's a relief so what can you offer me basically we can offer you everything an opinion campaign with bazza gates schultz social bots on twitter and facebook or even a targeted facebook advertising campaign we knew how to think like and build editor and what we did was we came up with a story that was techie and like an aspiring movie and we had a good feeling that this would work when there's a story like that for build they don't care about the details it's only interesting
if the story is good. political writer dan glazebrook told us the use of shaky sources is becoming standard practice in mainstream journalism been a long established rule really of western journalism that the usual procedures of fact checking and and accuracy and vetting sources and so on all go out the window and it comes the russia kind of concept of astroturfing astroturfing has become absolutely standard practice now across all corporations do it you know astroturfing basically using social media to promote a fake grassroots campaign in support of a product or a political policy or party or whatever and that's sad because it's very important sometimes we're living in a very complex and is there's a need for sophisticated journalism there is not just buying on. one side or the other there's a need for real sophisticated grasp of the complexities of developments and it doesn't help to develop that sophistication when there are these kind of stories
muddying the waters of so many. governments are involved in this so it's no surprise that news sites fall for the fall for this. russian lawmakers are said to push with harsher penalties for abusers for children it's after a series of extremely disturbing allegations emerged from an orphanage in the chelyabinsk region. i asked my son what they did with the man who came to see them my son was stunned and said what made fright potatoes i asked what else they did he rape me that was
he's answer i was lost for words i called another mother she told me her kids had the same story. my son decided to tell me everything he told me i was so afraid they said they would draw me the lake would lock me up in rehab for the rest of my life. for the. children say that one of the supervisors who brought them to this man and his friend just watched them being raped and all the boys saw how they gave money to the supervisors the small children didn't even know what the banknotes were so they just described them as green bits of paper. also because she was going. to say yes it's a good number that we.
live in this they are raping a child there those kids they're talking about it openly stay here until the night and listen for yourself what they are talking about at their school. to be. sure he was framed they're accusing him of something he didn't do the director of the orphanage let former inmates into the school they stayed overnight there they're the ones who did all of this with the kids and now they're just protecting each other so you get complained about wrongdoing at the orphanage about abuse he was so naive to do this he filed complaints about the orphanages director
to kids are taken for a walk in winter without proper clothing that the older kids are beating up younger residents that they're not giving them food sometimes. the far reaching investigation into the claims of abuse is now under way child welfare specialists are also carrying out of sustenance of all orphanages in the region. if policeman has died after clashes erupted between rival football fans in the spanish city of bilbao on thursday rather my colleague you know neil discussed the events with markets. was. was was class she saw five arrested both spanish and russian nationals were understand at this stage also multiple injuries reported as the fans pelted each other with objects including flares and crackers and it was during these

governor of greek central bank and two former prime ministers current prime minister alexis tsipras called the case one of the biggest scandals in the country's modern history under greek law prosecutors must actually refer the cases involving politicians to the parliament which then investigates and decides whether or not to revoke immunity before indictments can occur the u.s. federal bureau of investigation the f.b.i. assisted greek prosecutors and looking for evidence of money laundering this was key to making the case as there is a greek statute of limitations for bribery but not for money laundering. the world will need more than half a million new pilots in less than twenty years according to a study by airline maker boeing demand is expected to increase dramatically by twenty thirty six an estimated six hundred thirty thousand new pilots are going to be needed with more than a quarter million. needed in the asia pacific region alone to combat this shortage

removed their restrictions on produce from japan. and the same with the subject of foods and sanitary and final sanitary standards we turned to one of the foremost experts in the world to talk about safety and security of food system in the wake of a trumpet ministrations decision on the supplemental nutrition assistance program otherwise known as snap or mom more commonly referred to as food stamps we're joined by fred kaufman fred thank you for being here explain what it is that the trip administration has done with snap what they're they really proposing because it sounds almost unbelievable to me it is unbelievable snap of food stamps have been around forever it's one of the most successful programs and it's the direct cash amount that's delivered there are very few costs associated and yet the trumpet ministration has come up with this crazy american harvest box which is it's
going to cut the funding and half the audience are clicking would get from a blue apron nerd something in theory they've been calling it blue apron and of course one of the founders of blue apron is saying on the record there isn't this is nothing like blue apron and in other words if blue apron gave you some peanut butter or some pots that and some dried milk i don't think so the fact of the matter is this is dead on arrival and here is the reason why they're going to cut food stamps and a half this program in half which is what they've long wanted to do right this is a smoke screen so that a liberal like me will put my hands up in the air and start screaming and yelling about it the fact is that the extra analyses of this food box are astounding there is no way there's no cost associated with delivering the u.s.d.a. has no distribution system for delivering twenty one million of these boxes of food it's dead on arrival it's. not going to work and it's
a smokescreen for cutting food assistance ok i hope our viewers will give me a little patience here to go back on so the proposal is to deliver twenty one million boxes of food to people's homes with various foods in it and like you say maybe dried milk remember back yard you know you've really written about this. and i worked at the agriculture department when president reagan tried to classify catch up as a vegetable and it would be a fruit if it was going to be kept classified as anything but it's not bad either it's crap is what it is ok so they're going to deliver these all these millions and but the bottom line is they are cutting the budget so as crazy as that sound bite how they're going to deliver these things they're cutting the money anyway there's no system for the delivery of it this program is basically what they want to do is they they want to cut about seven to nine billion dollars out of the i'm sorry seventeen billion dollars in fiscal year nineteen it's
a seventy billion dollars program and the long term plan over the next ten years is to cut two hundred billion out of it this is completely outrageous we have forty six food insecure people in this country. mostly veterans mostly you know foster children who depend on these very small supplemental incomes for their food every month you know almost all of them work there i think less than seven percent are unemployed and most of these are undiagnosed with disease all sorts of things so this is one of the most successful programs in history copied across the world and yet the level of selfishness the level the small mindedness is driving this now fred is is part of the proposal which i got it it's the funding is not there for it anyway but is part of the proposal that the government will decide what it is in this theoretical box that you're never really going to get it that's the even crazier thing it's like the last thing a true conservative wants is
a guardian government telling you how much salt sugar and fat you will be eating but that is precisely what they're doing here they're going to be legislating your diet directly they're not going to allow you the classic free market choice here is your money if you want to spend it all on lobster the very first day well maybe you'll learn your lesson next month as the don't get it if you want to eat the rest of the month that's right that's right so this is against conservative philosophy and therefore they're flouting this because it's a smokescreen because what they really are want to do is cut the program it's crazy how you sometimes just politicians democrats and republicans that quite frankly lose their way whether or not they say it's ok to spend a bunch of money on a tax bill that we can't do or we don't really like the free markets when it comes to choosing what people will actually eat if they're getting anything from the government let me go let's go back to in history here a little bit you and i spoke a little bit about this that these food programs that help the least fortunate among us really started in the u.s.
explain that for our viewers yeah i mean the united states was a progressive nation once in one thousand nine hundred thirty nine during the f.d.r. administration the idea was this this list fabulous which is that we can actually buy the quote unquote food stamp and then. with the stamps that come with it use access for produce from this country those days have changed a lot there is no longer excess produce in this country in fact last year was the lowest wheat crop in america in fifteen years and what we're seeing is this wild booming of global trade and america is once again being left behind the largest producer of wheat in the world next year is going to be russia and of course russia has their own issues of twenty million people below the poverty line and so they've decided to do a food security program you know what it is the food are to food stamps exactly the following us now there's so we had it first that we're talking to one of the great secretaries of agriculture in u.s. history henry wallace from iowa so when he started this it really was emulated in
europe and other places and what's happening now does europe have programs employees that are similar so almost fifty years later in one nine hundred eighty seven the e.u. finally comes up with some money as a whole to give to individual nation nations within it but really it's a very different idea and in a weird way it's similar to the trump idea which is that in these particular nations these are for the what you're getting is direct food delivery to the most deprived people along with that food and those and those you get shoes you get toothpaste you get shampoo so it's a real poverty program and again this is more like on the soup kitchen model and the fact of the matter is that this program in europe is about a four point five billion euro program it is nowhere near the same level size it would be impossible to scale up even in europe and it is just absurd to think
