the u.k. doesn't keep data on how such equipment and weapons are used after being sold until that can be established m.p.'s put forward a motion to suspend sales altogether in the lights of the extensive use of live by israeli forces against palestinians in gaza the house calls for a suspension of u.k. sales to israel unless it can be demonstrated that weapons and components imported from the u.k. soley in accordance with the consolidated criteria that motion did not make it to debate and while just after the killing of protesters britain did join the chorus of countries calling for an independent investigation when the un put sending a war crimes protocol to a vote the u.k. abstained calling into question just how important the truth is to teresa mayes government and leaving one in the comfortable position of condemning potentially horrific abuses also in the guns to carry them out. they have always been i mean
it's rather not actually they have increased there are. in critical occasionally the more the more shareholders go. right i mean we can really i think i really believe. people working at the existence already of their. lying israel. they can see where i was where those children were coming in one by one. they can see i don't. know i think they would walk away in the street. meanwhile four and a half thousand pairs of shoes have been laid out in front of you cancel building ahead of a meeting of the blocks foreign ministers each pair is meant to represent a palestinian killed by israeli forces over the last decade. over a thousand of them some of us children and i brought the shoes of my daughter as well. to just show that i'm standing with those fathers the smothers brothers the
sisters who've lost their children and their siblings in this war. that's why we're also calling on the european union say enough is enough until you know for sure but sanction israel show them the by the test. while the israeli army has repeatedly stressed that it is acting in accordance with standard operating procedures and accused thomas fueling the riots political analyst michel barack says that israel has every right to protect its borders. ones that were killed were close to the border they were either throwing molotov cocktails throwing stones shooting trying to do whatever they could to 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 but spot the growing tensions israel is expected to ignore coast not to demolish a bedouin village on palestinian territory israel argues the village was built with that permission. of the school. it's the only school here and there are no others i can go to jericho just traffic is so have that if they come in terror school down the whole study sitting on the ground.
at the gym or how that had up to them obviously to the how it is down brick the school piece from it was a day here i never see them as bedouins been to most of their bodies and i don't think the zone in which mean israel is hosting not only this settlement to them something seems to could try to do some of that i had little. every. hour journalists attack to twenty sixteen in r.c. rally in sacramento says that local police try to file false charges because of his political views he claims he wanted to film the protests which was then which then turned violent leaving ten people injured. of her.
feet. of her. well cedric o'bannon here is a long time activist against racism and police brutality he was seriously injured while filming those sacramento protests the activists also claims all the evidence he had on his camera including images of the attacker were raised by the police a ban and also says that police did little to protect him from being stabbed police in turn though say that the activist was fueling the unrest by raising his fists in the air as a symbol of black power and they had wanted to charge him with assault they also say the activist was promoting extremist views on social media said rico banning
claims that the charges didn't come to fruition as the evidence didn't back up the claims he told us why he thought he was targeted. this is the problem with racism in america you know this is why somebody like the present in the united states you know. it's you know there's a lot of work by example so it's right or. not are we absolutely clear. it's the same thing is that. listen now it's the situation there's the you know parts of. his work national sympathies. eats all the nuts you know that's all you can do what is so you thought it. was like in that. little. little myra's. where we did ask the police to elaborate on their allegations
against o'bannon although so far we haven't received a response this isn't the first time black activists have found themselves in the wrong side of the law and we're going to hear was prosecuted as a black identity extremist he was arrested for political views expressed in his facebook posts and the andre harris was charged with unlawful wounding after he was beaten up by white supremacists. ivan the terrible who ruled as russians are in the sixteenth century is still making headlines today because a painting of him that hangs in a moscow gallery was vandalized by a visitor in claims it falsifies the past.
i came to see that painting i wanted to leave but then dropped into the bath ate and drank one hundred grams of what. the true news is no bones hussan and yet it's still not clear whether he killed his son he's been portrayed as this old to bond in mostly if you look at other countries rule is at the time there were no buts. and watching out international we're going to take a quick break we'll be back in simmons.
i played for many clubs over the years so i know the game and so i got. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch for the final school it's about the passion from the families it's the age of the shaper money killian a loan has been spending to get a twenty million a one player. it's an experience like nothing else only because i want to share what i think what i know about the beautiful guy great so what more chance for.
me it's going to. come back now europe is making last ditch efforts to save the iran nuclear deal during a meeting of the blocks foreign ministers in brussels officials are promising a number of measures to shield european companies from u.s. sanctions but is an issue sethi now reports washington does appear to have the upper hand. it took twelve years of international diplomacy to reach a nuclear deal that trump decided to tear up and now you're pissed left are vowing to protect economic ties with iran from renewed u.s. sanctions we've been acting already i do european union level to make sure that the nuclear agreement is preserved and economic investments from the european side but
also from other sites in the world so are protected and we will work so that we can maintain the framework of the twenty fifteen points of the american decision we will ensure that our companies can stay in. 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 a global company in this world today we've just. as a us system that's all of us all here if you have the world and other european companies accosting major doubts there's a primacy of political system and if your premise is that this is what you're going to do that's exactly what we're going to do they you house decided to activate a law that will ban european companies from complying with the u.s. actions against iran but there's a snag the statute has never been used before and this seen by european governments
as more of a political weapon than a regulation because this was 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 mission needs to be taken even if the european union would act to protect european companies. want to continue to do business review iran they cannot really prevent united states to sanction them on the american markets they don't want to push to bully me to have a trade war with the european union member states be strong enough that we have
a pretty good a real to really decide the countermeasure us which really. united states we are not so far in your position to do research while the e.u. scrambles to save the nuclear dale this hasn't gone unnoticed by tehran which is ramping up the pressure these political support for the nuclear court is not sufficient then ounce one 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 syrup is talking tough on doing business without the u.s. but can the bloc really stand alone when the time comes to x. . now there are growing suspicions that the u.s. has prepared an indictment against wiki leaks founder julian sun washington is for years refused though to officially confirm or deny whether it has done so democratic congressman adam schiff
a leader of one of the investigations into alleged russian meddling in the u.s. has said he'd accept testimony from a science but only if the whistleblower is in custody but after his son's reportedly sought an audience with shift to prove his innocence if you join a side willing to speak to us he told me when mark this year and it was joyous i want to do that because well he's ready to show that there is no call lucian but in the tweet wiki leaks denied its founder had ever made such an offer adding that assigns quote does not speak to the public through third parties during the signs has been a longstanding uses for the u.s. since the foundation of wiki leaks back in two thousand and six it has published thousands of documents exposing u.s. officials diplomats the army and also intelligence services and over the years top u.s. officials have not mince their words when it comes to a such. 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 i want to do it illegally shoot the son of a. man as a terrorist 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 believes that his son would face a bad face if taken into u.s. custody 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 assange 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 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. national is coming up. here mosque and we're going to be back with more nice in the headlines and. at the moment it isn't anyone's. asked where the korean the go she should stand
again donald trump is the wildcard also is the u.s. isolating itself on the world stage. afshin rattansi we're going underground is the chinese communist party officials in the united nations office of outer space affairs announced details of the new china space station coming up in the show on today's anniversary of the convening of the
first palestinian national council what now for palestine we go to ramallah to ask palestine chief negotiator so i barack out of the u.k. backed israeli government can ever be made to abide by un resolutions and what now for israel we speak to the co-chair of the northwest friends of israel the bloom about the difference between self-defense and war crimes plus why the writer of going underground looks the way he does we speak to the designer who dressed more like paul weller about class and the story of british modernism colas a more coming up in today's going underground but first today politicians from across the e.u. discuss implementation of the iran nuclear deal or j c p o to many around the world statements like these from washington which is arguably violated un security council resolution two two three one is destroyed a post nine hundred forty five consensus the usa has declared an all out economic war against a middle east superpower these will indeed end up being the strongest sanctions in history when we are complete after our sanctions come in force it will be battling
to keep its economy why compare that with the foreign minister of the largest economic bloc in the world nuclear deal with iran is crucial for the security of the region of europe and of the entire worked that's for france's position on the j c p o iran nuclear deal that's why france will not leave the g.t.p. henri the same goes for the international community even if britain arguably waivers in alleged. genuflection to the usa of course the president is is right to see flaws in it and he set a very reasonable challenge to the world with look iran is behaving badly iran has a tendency to develop intercontinental ballistic missiles we've got to stop that we've got to we've got to we've got to push back on what iran is doing in the region we got to be tougher on iran britain's nato partner turkey which borders iran is arguably more forthright we did not find this to be right for the sake of the peace of the region. because as the international atomic energy agency
statement says in respect to the nuclear issue iran is a country which for thill their obligations earlier one has been increasingly more forthright against the usa he faces electoral opponents in less than a month's time who threaten to shut down nato as bases interlink from where washington bombs countries all around the region they could also kick out all u.s. soldiers in turkey by christmas president out of work for his part was the first nato nation leader to kick out an ambassador from anglo-american backed israel in the past few days the reason british armed israeli soldiers were killing thousands this month well joining me now from ramallah is palestine's chief negotiator. thanks for coming on going underground firstly your reaction to groups such as britain's labor friends of israel let alone boris johnson's foreign office blaming hamas for the israeli massacre of great return much protestors this is shameful this is as low as look can get you know when you have sixty four palestinians
slaughtered and killed in cold blood more than two thousand five hundred wounded not a single bullet was fired not a single demonstrator had anything in their hands and then they have this spent to blame the killed and the victims i don't know what we're witnessing in international but it's even with all this t.v. coverage with all this situation where the most all of them were killed in the land of gaza all of them were wounded and then to go is that not a single israeli was shut or even even threatened and yet there are those people who come out to say. those who are killed should be blamed this is shameful this is disgusting and this is how low in this international politics we're going i've never thought in my life to see in the friends of israel and britain or the nikki
haley in the un or others who are more plain more israelis than the israelis on this at least there were some israeli writers who stood tall to say enough is enough about these massacres being committed against the innocent civilian population and then the second pretext the us they say oh they're hamas lieberman the defense minister of israel says there are no innocent people of gaza imagine two million people there isn't a single entrant child woman man in the eyes of lieberman who is innocent so everyone can be killed everyone should be killed and then secondly. we have videos of israeli soldiers shooting sniping our kids and then dancing dancing on it and number three we called for an investigation commission and who rejected negotiate their investigation commission israel halley from friends of israel and london and
nowhere what was going on. that cannot stand that that cannot stand if we if you want peace in this region if we want to defeat extremism in this region we cannot allow this extremist israeli government to do what's doing in terms of settlement activities the massacres the confiscation of land the settlement activities the siege the closure they have there and get them to a big prison in the last eleven years to a big prison then one response from britain is now to send prince william the first ever member of the royal family to go to israel what do you think of the we were contacted and he also want to go to to visit us we're not against anybody is coming to visit this region but we want people to stand tall we want britain to stand tall and you have a you know the british parliament almost three years ago voted unanimously to know how to recognise the state of palestine with these drugs in the sky better. the government didn't is that i should not be rewarded i'm going to interfere in the
politics of britain who comes and who goes but all i'm saying is that if we want to preserve international law if we want to preserve nonviolent palestinian struggle against israeli occupation people should stand tall people especially in britain stand tall and condemn these atrocities and and crimes committed against the palestinian people and dick take a step of courage but who knows in this state of palestine because when you say that you support the two states you should it who is the two states and not one state i know you have said that because of the trump decision to move the embassy all talks are off even if there were talks what is the state of health of your leader mahmoud abbas is with the hospital as a matter of fact just visited with him he's doing well he had some. lung infection and some high fever and he needed some treatment and he's really recovering and doing very well but didn't the palestine paper leaks in effect mean that you
offered israel what trump has you said the biggest jerusalem in jewish history with all of this is this wasn't true what i said was jerusalem should be divided is jerusalem should be the capital of palestine and it was there was a limb be the capital of israel but then we can have open city of big jerusalem that can be on both sides we don't want you know the day after peace is signed if we ever have to that there things should look different palestinians and israelis deserve there to live and let live and that's what we did we did we did yes we did look you know there's a right to exist in business you can succeed in lines we have accepted many many many terms in terms of security arrangements and so on but unfortunately we haven't had an israeli official say that there are who knows the state of palestine on the nine hundred sixty seven lines. we haven't heard any israeli official saying that settlement should be stabbed in the country or government since oslo agreement
continued to build settlement activities and continued dictations and continual siege and closure assassinations and all this collective punishment being employed so if peace of the end of the day is a need and we need peace israel need peace if one day there were riots in israel. leader a party that is willing to commit itself to peace they should know that the only solution is for the state of palestine with east jerusalem as its capital to live side by side with is the state of israel. on the one hundred sixty seven lines and a solution based on international law to prisoners water and other issues should be should be found and we can do it but so far this israeli government supported by the driver the main driver for them now is mr trump himself they believe they can dictate the solution on us they believe they can get away with the settlements and the siege and the closure and making
a deeper apartheid system in the west bank and in jerusalem then that which existed in south africa there are orders in the west bank today and is jerusalem we cannot use as palestinians only israelis can use and such diseases as bigotry and racism once then afflict underneath our skins our skins as humans. all of us we have it in this it is just defy it sociologically psychologically economically sexually and now as well as in the pretext of security to justify the apartheid system also apartheid will not survive the current situation is not sustainable so what netanyahu are doing they're destroying moderates like me who believe in the two state solution who believe in. peace peacefully and nonviolence. i mean me me and my president mahmoud abbas and my party and the majority of the palestinian people really destroying palestinian out of moderates and if you take a shit and take the terms. and the last he what he did in the last year who get and
then who lost their destroying and destabilising stability in this region. they're destroying the moderates in this region these things and extremism in this region and extremist and reject this medium bloodying their decisions as you said of president ram because they are telling us look for twenty five years you have been negotiating. you are said to ask you which of the two of the two state solution is jerusalem and be governor of palestine was doesn't have to reza and look what they're doing to you know what do you answer. what do i answer you said when the leader arrives israel until that peaceful protest arguably doesn't work what are your people supposed to do until a leader. of what we have no place to go today from the river jordan to their military and greater historic palestine today i am fifty point nine
percent of the pollution. and is forty nine point one percent of the pollution what the question to them what are the going to do with me i'm here i'm here to stay i'm going to develop my own army my institutions my schools my university is my hospital is i have to protect my people in every sense possible we still believe we will still continue to seek peace but we want nations on earth like. union for instance to move to extend call where can there who is jerusalem as capital of palestine where can they do who knows the policy instead when they say two state solution where can they help palestinian moderates to steer the course where can they help keep hope in the minds of palestinians because i'm afraid if peaceful demonstrations don't work and if peace negotiations are not working i'm afraid this vacuum will be filled by this variation and this petition only this but it acts that's the truth never a dull moment if we want to avoid violence if we want to avoid extremism if we want
to avoid this but we should act immediately to keep the alive in the minds of palestinians so america. after the break. to give a different perspective we speak to the co-chair of the northwest friends of israel rafi bloom and savile row for everyone now jewish immigration to britain led to a tale of changing the way every man of good looks today that alone pull well out of going up the ground for a goal the symbol coming up on to him going underground. mats geysers financial survival guide liquid assets not those that you can convert an insecure as quite easily. to keep in mind no assets i mean to a place in.
