eight revised number of souls on board all feared dead it was a murder it was a crime there's been this odd nonchalance about pursuing the answers there was a report a very limited report put out a few months after the event but since then they said the next report will be on the first anniversary of the event but you do with a criminal investigation before becomes a cold case so there's been this curious element of why is there not greater pressure from both the media and the the western governments to answer these questions but even without any answers the fingers were pointed immediately that's not an action. that is happening because a russian support evidence indicates that the plane was shot down by a surface to air missile that was launched from an area that is controlled by russian backed separatists inside of ukraine international so to put up

11:23 pm
to forty percent of its residents living under occupation most of them are not citizens of any state in the night of basic rights i'm here with a group called all that's left for the diaspora jews against the occupation we're here because we oppose terms and to see do we think it's playing with the lives of israelis and palestinians alike in our lives and if it is not a game. be any trade economy terry and while what do you what do you think about the whole incident we are. in a demonstration which has been licensed by those in a police but immediately after we arrived they attacked attacked a member of the knesset just because we had it been for the fasting and for god and then they are. pushed us to the back we are here to see that jerusalem east is ok if i did it today it could be the capital of the state the finest i know that tensions are definitely running high hair as you can see the face scuffles and

11:25 pm
a look now at why the status of jerusalem is such a divisive issue for israelis and palestinians jerusalem is a city that's been a point of contention for nearly a thousand years ever since the first crusaders arrived to drive the muslim population away for nearly two centuries the area was governed by christian congress under the name of kingdom of jerusalem but the end of the thirteenth century had been a crusade of the holy land and up under muslim control with so much turbulent religious history today the area holds significance for christians jews and muslims alike all regard different parts of the old city to be their holy sites and since the formation of the state of israel in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight israel considers jerusalem to be its capital the subsequent conflict with their arab neighbors saw israel capture and annex the entire city of jerusalem the move has never been recognized by the united nations it stands firm on the idea of establishing the two state solution where israel and palestine exist independently
11:26 pm
so by president trump announcing moving the embassy to jerusalem he's on the line that the u.s. recognizes the holy city to be the capital of israel for the international community that goes against the notion that any change in the city status should come through negotiations and not a unilateral action. we discussed the long running dispute over jerusalem with several guests. only yearly miserable some people around us want to expose korans to those who declare that they want to kill us who declare that they want to get into israel. by clutching caused by. poor that they're just you know all of the regional high limit our other ones are exactly on the nerdier are some years later in that i was only two for for eleven years your start up steadily is what policy has brought to the world where we have anything resides
11:27 pm
raising children and. now a lot of n.r.a. anything jews are now a small minority and that population and the more of a minority they become the more undemocratic. and racist israel becomes there are zero israeli injuries zero israeli casualties over two thousand palestinians injured over fifty seven palestinians killed including l.i.l.o. sorry how magic. do all of these protests hamas is not my favorite organization hamas is a politically bankrupt group which has completely failed to exploit israel's gross gross contradictions and to use them against the increasingly race
11:28 pm
a state i have something to tell you we want to stop the policy and state in the future a two state solution is the international solution it's not the palestinian solution alone i do believe still that there is a chance for this solution but it will take courage and it will take resolve from the international community to step up. well some of america's allies of criticize the decision to relocate the embassy they've called it a breach of international law some of that criticism was voice that an emergency session of the u.n. security council this was on tuesday or the u.s. ambassador insisted embassy move did not undermine the peace process it has no bearing on jerusalem's holy sites it does not prejudge whatever the parties might negotiate in a peace agreement it does not under mind the prospects for peace in any way and yet first son this is supposedly
11:29 pm
a cause for violence the un human rights council has voted to launch an international probe into deaths on the israeli gaza border but the u.s. is opposing the move is artie's kelly morgan reports. the day that the american embassy was officially moved to jerusalem it was a day of great jubilation for american and israeli officials. remember this moment. but across the palestinian territories it couldn't have been more different in beleaguered gaza there was nothing but suffering and chaos our greatest hope is for peace the united states is prepared to support peace negotiations united states is prepared to support the peace agreement in every way that we can and i don't think it hurts the peace plan. the peace plan will be introduced at the appropriate time there was certainly not any criticism of any of israel's extreme use of force by anyone in the trumpet ministration hamas terrorist
11:30 pm
backed by iran have incited attacks against israeli security forces and infrastructure so israel is not responsible for shooting mostly peaceful palestinian protesters some of whom were just children shot down by their own soldiers but if you're a place israel with syria suddenly nikki haley's heart bleeds for the dead in far less clear cut situations. yesterday morning. we awoke to pictures to children being carried in the arms of desperate parents yes all the talk about human rights does not apply to palestinian protesters they do not get america's support because they're not protesting in the right country. big protests in iran the people who finally gets in wise as to how the money and wealth is being stolen and squandered on terrorism looks like they will not take it any longer the u.s. is watching very.
