break through the border fence in order to kill israeli citizens please don't call them protesters we don't care how old they are if hamas is willing to put up teenagers or others that are young or old or elderly even in order to break through the israeli border the israeli army will stop them that's reasonable the fact that there have been countries that have condemned israel i will say so what every country needs to protect their border every country needs to protect their citizens at the same time a small bedouin community on palestinian territory is about to be demolished the e.u. mission in jerusalem calling on israel to stop that it ask that the community be allowed to quote live decently.

file false charges against him because of his political views he claims he wanted to film the protest which then turned violent leaving ten people injured. so trick o'bannon is a long time activist against racism and police brutality he says he went to the riot to film it but it was seriously injured the activist claims all the evidence he had on his camera including images of the attacker were erased by police he also says police did little to protect him from being stabbed now the police in turn say
the activist was fueling the on a rest by raising his fist in the air as a symbol of black power and he wanted to charge him with assault and also say the activist was promoting extremist views on social media my colleague or kevin owen earlier about and what he thought the real reason for the charges were why would the police though have sympathies with neo nazis a good margin in their own private lives there are some bad eggs there are people that you don't understand how they're thinking you said all the police there that day there was not one that was really looking out for you a journalist simply as you say peacefully documenting this clash. this is a problem with racism in america this is why somebody like the present in the united states well you know. it's you know well there's a problem with by the example it's trying to please. not only as.
violence is the same thing is a. listen now it's a situation there's a get it easily. i could see his whether mass will sympathies you know he saw all the nazi and that's all he would do what is. he. was not in the. little things he didn't mean to minimize those. we have asked the police to elaborate on the allegations against o'bannon but so far no response but not the first time black activists have found themselves on the wrong side of the law logan was prosecuted as a black identity extremist arrested for political views expressed on facebook and the andre harris was charged with unlawful wounding after he was beaten up by white supremacists. so ivan the terrible who ruled as russia's czar in the
sixteenth century is it seems still driving people mad today a painting of him that hangs in a moscow gallery was vandalized by a visitor who claims it falsifies the past. the first. i came to see that painting i wanted to leave but then dropped into the bath ate and drank one hundred grams of what good. news is. it's still not clear whether he killed his son he's been portrayed as this old javan in leafy look at other countries rule is at the time there were no better
. and still to come here on the program the drama of the champions league final was not complete without a russian meddling twist and explained that after the break. it's. what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race. speech. only. i don't see how that strategy will be very critical. to sit down and
to join us today for the program diplomatic efforts to save the iran nuclear deal are in full swing with european and iranian diplomats making enthusiastic noises but you repin companies operating in iran are less optimistic after u.s. president donald trump reneged on the deal he threatened sanctions. with tehran. he takes a closer look. it took twelve years of international diplomacy to reach a nuclear deal that trump decided to tear up and now europe is left are vowing to protect economic ties with iran from renewed u.s. sanctions put where we can meet in the european union will have to protect our european companies and in particular the small and medium sized enterprises it is and we will work so that we can maintain the framework of the twenty fifteen do you in spirits of the american decision we will ensure that our companies can stay in the room business leaders however have struck more of a pessimistic note the c.e.o.
of all giant total is ready to pull out of a multi-billion dollar project and less given a waiver it's not possible to run the global company in this world today we've just we voted in new york he says the us system just about all of us are here if you have the world and other european companies accosting major doubt as a primacy of political system and if the premise is that this is what you're going to do that's exactly what you're going to do they you house decided to activate a law that will ban european companies from complying with the u.s. sanctions against iran but there's a snag the statute has never been used before and is seen by european governments as more of a political weapon than a regulation because its walls a difficult to enforce indeed the e.u. blocking regulation could be of limited effectiveness that given the international nature of the banking system and especially the exposure of large systemic banks to the u.s. financial system and u.s.
dollar transactions. history has taught us the transplanting partnership has been strengthened by cooperation of trade defense and shared values but in this current crisis and needs to be taken even if the european union would act to protect european companies. want to continue to do business review they cannot really prevent the united states to sanction them on the american markets they don't want to push to believe me to have a trade war the european union member states be strong enough to relive the political really to really. decide that countermeasure us reach really bite the united states we are not so far in your position to do this while the e.u. scrambles to save the nuclear dail this hasn't gone unnoticed by tehran which is
ramping up the pressure these political support for the nuclear court is not sufficient there nonsupport of the possible withdrawal by major european companies from the corporation with iran is not consistent with the european union's commitment to implementing the deal as it currently stands europe is talking tough on doing business without the u.s. but can the bloc really stand alone when the time comes to act. a state of emergency has been declared in one county in maryland due to a heavy storm causing massive flooding. besides the downpour a nearby river brokers' banks and swelled to record levels in many areas water gushed into the ground floor of buildings and no fatalities or missing people reported there were sunday's scenes were reminiscent of the last flood which hit maryland two years ago during that point two were killed when
a number of others were injured it's. wiki leaks founder an alleged russian intelligence operative julian assange has been holed up in the ecuadorian embassy in london for the last several years fearing extradition to the united states and there's been now another hint that the u.s. does plan to indict him and u.s. congressman adam schiff who oversees iraq russia probe says he would accept testimony from a songe but only if he's in custody previously the u.s. authorities said prosecuting him would be difficult as this could set a precedent by the wiki leaks founder had reportedly wanted to testify. you have julius always willing to speak out of shit yesterday yes he told me when you talk to show and he why does doing a sausage want to do that because well he's ready to show that there is no pollution but wiki leaks he's here to tweet denying that such a request has ever been made by its founder julian assange has been
a long standing nuisance for the u.s. since the foundation of we can expect in two thousand and six it's published thousands of documents exposing us officials diplomats the army and the intel services the top u.s. officials though have not hesitated to speak out against assad's this guy is a traitor a treasonous and he has broken every law the united states the guy ought to be and i'm not for the death penalty so if i'm not for the death penalty want to do it illegally shoot the son of a. man as a terrorist can act tough and say if we catch you we're going to hang you whatever wiki leaks walks like a hostile intelligence service and talks like a hostile intelligence service ignorance or misplaced idealism is no longer an acceptable excuse for lionizing these demons investigative journalist max blumenthal told us that our songes activities make officials in washington nervous . u.s. has refused to speak to julian assange except under duress under harsh conditions
possibly after solitary confinement which shows that they don't want to know what julian us knows they don't want to interrupt their narrative with with what could be fact almost no one in washington in the press corps will stand up and defend julian assange as a fellow journalist who is facing some of the harshest conditions any journalist in the west is facing because he embarrassed the u.s. government and he embarrassed the cia and we should also remember that there is no grand jury for julian a son for the d.n.c. hack or leak or whatever it was it only relates to the revelation of internal cia documents so this is a case that sets a precedent for the rest of the media and how other journalists will be treated if they reveal classified information and it seems like there's very little concern about that within the journalistic community in the west. meanwhile russia seems to
now this is all to international we have many more stories to offer you in about half an hour's time. to. join me every thursday on the alex i'm unsure when i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sport this list i'm showbusiness i'll see you than. anyone else chose seemed wrong all wrong just don't call. me old if you get to shape out these days comes to agitate and in games from an
equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. you know. you never know what's around the corner you never know what's in the pub you're going to walk into a nice excitement it's that not knowing that's where the adrenalin much comes from . and you can easily move by definition and the extremes will support. the violence is a pot and it's almost a schizophrenia gang culture where you can do all these things and behave like badly. important people of course colorful all. of us both more so for the last.
hello and welcome to crossfire or all things considered i'm peter lavelle at the moment it is anyone's guess where the korean negotiations stand again donald trump is the wildcard also is the u.s. isolating itself on the world state. cross talking the korean peninsula i'm joined by my guest mark sloboda he's an international affairs and security analyst we also have dimitri bobbitt she is a political analyst we spoke nick international and we cross to alex christian forro is the director and writer for the duran dot com hi gentlemen crosstalk rules in effect that means you can jump into any time you want i always appreciate alex
let me go to you first then cyprus here i sent out to all you guys an article written by ray mcgovern. regarding what's going on with the on and off again negotiations about this upcoming summit in singapore. what's really happening here because it looks like it's we really have a love fest i don't think that's an exaggeration with the koreans right now we had a second summit secretly. coming together then released to the press trump goes out there now he says maybe he's back in what's going on is it the john bolton a fact. pompei you know is there a tug of war do you think inside the white house because the koreans seem to have a lot of commonality at the at this moment yeah absolutely i think that it all comes down to my. bringing up the libya card why they had to bring up anyone's guess but obviously we know what happened in libya where. they're on their
way and then ten years later ten years later the u.s. and nato. dismantled the entire the and now the country is in shambles and so you know when you when you look at north korea's response to what it said. it was actually pretty measure chimp didn't respond at all. korea responded. i believe they were funded properly because libya is a sensitive topic especially with north korea and the fact they're going to give up their weapons and the right to defense that they have so i think what you have here is a very poorly. timed statement by chance and of course bolted and i think you're seeing both in the both in effect for sure here in the trump foreign policy you know when you bring up the libya model there's actually two of them and i think this is one good problems that the administration is having one was an agreement to take apart their nuclear program and a general reproach moment with with the west and then you have the two thousand and
eleven bombing in destruction i don't i don't think you can separate them well though because although certainly they're not separated in the minds of the north korea of anyone i don't think because they're first of all libya did not have nuclear weapons north korea is a nuclear armed state these are vastly different scenarios and north korea demands to be treated as they are as i did how i got to the table libya had a nuclear program that really had make any advances they didn't have the resources or the the scientific expertise to really pursue it they gave up everything an issue really in just returned from goodwill from the west and several years later the result of that and their government was bombed out of power and overthrown and gadhafi was brutally killed in fact ian bremmer the head of the eurasia group put out a he has an orca called jeezy labs that makes little cute puppet shows that
reinforces political messages and the latest one quite tasteless and really disturbing had kimmel jong. having nightmares of waking up like khadafi being brutalized and raped and then murdered. by geologist rebels and that of course is the message that was sent to north korea the reason john bolton said this is because he intended to sabotage the glocks. it was easy we identified early on that he was one of the biggest obstacles to these talks and any progress being made and he would have a target and a trumpet that you have you have a pump alien is actually secretary of state right now he was there before he was even confirm to start moving the go she said so and he's butting heads it would seem with john bolton well it's true and it's just amazing how trump says i had to cancel this meeting because of your hostile statement. to no one well i mean if
a new one made host of statements it was mike pence who compared korea to libya and if any of our should have nightmares this should be sarkozy you know former french president who is now accused by the french justice of taking money from using them for his campaign that the stock involved in leave before all the other nato members and then seizing the assets of the libyan government from their bank accounts so if anyone should have nightmares and conscious that should be psychology and there's a holocaust and i doubt it happens we'll go back to alex in cyprus here what i think is really interesting what's going on here western media is so western centric and they're all looking at what was going on in the white house what we just talked about right here but really the real game in town is the south korean president mahmoud it looks like he came in and really did snatch victory from the jaws of defeat here and i find it really remarkable how adroit he is and his
diploma cross that he's right in every single way he did that a very good point go ahead alex movie showing that he's very serious of the peace that that goes without question. and really he batra into a corner and there's a lot of ego in and around trump that i think will play too and that already the government says it is article i mean this is this is trust chances big chance to get a nobel peace prize and so you have to on the one hand trying to sabotage the peace process which he's done for in the past and i think you're going to be looking up some other people in the truckload white house trying to play to trump ego and lou and natalie played his cards perfectly by meeting with him showing that he's serious about a peace deal here showing that he's serious about a negotiation a peace deal and now the world in transport and i would also say one other player going to mark here the chinese have shown themselves to be quite serious about
what's going on here as well i mean there is this perception is that. kim went to beijing for permission basically no he wanted to inform his chinese in talkers what he was going to do and they agreed to it because it is a solid approach here the problem is is that. enemies in the u.s. and in the world don't want to see him succeed that's the ambivalence they show when reporting all this particularly in the media but all the other players seem to be quite serious on how to move forward yeah he made his second trip to china and the last year and i'm sure that the these peace talks were being us then again we said this weeks ago already north korea and south korea whatever happens with the u.s. and the mixed signals it is sending it's it's clear that they don't have a clear policy at this point and i don't i don't think this is any type of strategic ambiguity that they literally don't know what they're doing. and north korea and south korea need to sit down with each other and continue the process no
matter if they are to actually ignore the u.s. and then again maybe try to buy it in at a later date but i think it's important again this libya scenario to mention that. you know bolton statements while provocative were largely ignored by north korea north korea was more upset with the u.s. and south korea. against agreements that had already been made conducted strategic that is nuclear drills on the north korean border involved they announced it was going to be conducted would be fifty two and they have twenty two which are both nuclear capable north korea really objected to this great strenuously and then it was dial back in the b. fifty two that were dialed out of it but the interesting thing is here is and the maximum. pressure being applied here you know but i mean it's illogical i mean this is a very sensitive time right now i mean really made
a good point i mean president moon when across the d.m.z. i mean think of that for the last you know since nine hundred fifty three what that means is crossing the berlin wall exactly reince did what they could you know we can't accuse both north korea and south korea of not doing anything for peace but coming back to that article by ray mcgovern you know i have a peace plan for korea let me just remind our listeners that craig my government is a hero you know he's a former cia official who is now a dissident who recently got beaten you know because you want to toss and incompetent question but my peace plan you know based on that great mcgowan psychical but he says that trump should be led you know dream of his nobel peace prize ok since the novel peace prize is already discredited by being given to a bomb and that the nobel peace prize committee in north will let them come to donald trump and see congratulations and all that drop meant get your prices.
