10:11 am
this announcement on twitter came as mike pompei o the top diplomat of the united states secretary of state was meeting with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu he expressed a huge amount of gratitude for this gift of recognizing the golan heights and its time when the run cease to syria as a platform to destroy israel trump boldly recognize israel is sovereignty in the golan heights thank you president trump now in its annual human rights report the u.s.a. described palestinian territories not as israeli occupied but rather as israeli controlled and we recently saw mike pump a zero take the unprecedented move as u.s. secretary of state and actually visit the western wall in jerusalem now at this point the world is well aware that benjamin netanyahu is facing an election that will determine whether or not he remains the prime minister of israel and some have

european union has rejected trees amaze requests for a three month delay to break that the e.u. is offering a shorter postponement done only on the condition that the british parliament approves the unpopular with troll deal painstakingly negotiated by the british prime minister brussels and it seems the turmoil has taken its toll on some european leaders. do would be able to also agree still an extension until the. twentieth of april of .
10:14 am
this whole year. on to the very. thing to do our poll. and there's still empty you know and it means the that a lot of space. it was certainly a long nights of discussion debate decision making and chopping and changing plans multiple times at the e.u. council summit and finally a decision that was reached officially and a final offer to to reason may and the u.k. for its breaks up plans for spurring that there line article fifty until the twenty second of may conditional on to resume a passing up plan in parliament of course it's already been rejected twice by big majorities humiliating defeat for the conservative government and it's probably for that reason that the e.u. council added these conditions of the condition that you pass is that through if
10:15 am
not they've added the option of a second extension up until the twelfth of april now if the u.k. chooses to go for that second extension of the reason may fails to put our plan through parliament as widely expected the u.k. will have to come up with some sort of plan with some sort of offer to continue that process in which case they will have to agree to participate in the european parliamentary elections but of course that would be rather silly and rather pointless because the u.k. is of course leaving the european union as. reason why i stated it in her press conference oh come the twenty eighth of march depending on what happens in the house of commons she may have to go back to the e.u. once again the e.u. may have to call another emergency council meeting to decide what exactly happens next so it does seem the brusque sagal from now will continue. the case speaking of the u.k. a transgender rights campaigner there is in the spotlight for
10:16 am
a controversial issue she initiated susie green reported a catholic journalist to police over what she described as vile and a hateful tweets following an appearance on a popular t.v. show the reporter no says she has become a victim of a public witch hunt for her beliefs. meanwhile a group of people have terrified and harassed my family docs my children made violent and sexual threats sign me up to porn accounts did the same to my husband threatened to visit here and tumbleweed was so where does the stem from well tempers flared when journalist caroline forro debated the rights issue with susie green a mother of a transgender girl on national t.v. in the u.k. susie green runs mermaids that's a u.k. charity for transgender children her own child gender reassignment surgery at the age of sixteen green reported carline pharo a devout catholic to police for a series of tweets which use words like mutilated and castrate she sees the post
10:17 am
went far beyond the trans gender debates you will see the tweets are a lot more serious than about his gender and there were allegations of serious misconduct and violence spiteful personal attacks greenhouse now withdrawn the complaint but the debate rages on we put the issue up for the scutcheon with human rights campaigner peter tatchell but first let's hear from talk show hosts john gaunt. kara it is a devout catholic i met him many times interfere she's a devout catholic she has an absolute right to hold a view of saying i don't accept this just like a muslim person and they couldn't except either so let's have respect both sides is absolute nonsense that the police of got caroline should have be respectful of the design of that trans woman to be referred to as she. even if she doesn't approve of it you know reflecting someone's chosen gender that is not
10:18 am
a big deal it doesn't imply support or endorsement it's just about common decency and respect there is this increasing tendency for the police to be bought in to deal with what some people find offensive but you know in human terms there is no right to not be offended you know offense is part and parcel of open debate now i'm glad that we live in a free society where people can express their opinions and what caroline forrest said was not stirring hatred or discrimination of violence against trans people she was simply in my view disrespectfully refusing to use the term she to a trans woman look she went through a difficult time with a boy who then thought she was a woman and he's a woman now abusing but i do think there is
10:19 am
a kind of pressure on everyone that we have to conform to his new language i think that's deplorable but i don't think it's a matter for police intervention you know there are serious crimes serious hate crimes out there violence discrimination how recent which the police should be focusing on not what individual people may say if we close down debate. on the most important debate channel in the world. social media and facebook then we're going to live in very dangerous times and now we're really going to allow the new all or docs of the media world facebook and twitter to be all old chamberlain's surely we should be grown no i'm talking about it that's approaching twenty minutes past five pm this friday evening here in moscow i'm back and about a minute and a half with more world news stick with us. her.

rejecting the new immigration fortunes and its sinister anti migration campaign hungry the accuses russians of undermining european security with the rise of euro to front government or three. hundred state concentration cool tree. branch or the like minded neighbors. damaging the standoff becomes the e.u. and with you it's like the right to write on the council. and foreign minister great to have you with us again you are always a very welcome guest on our show thank you for being with us and this time around we have lots of news to discuss because hunger is once again making the top charts when it comes to news to the bloc of the center right parties in the european parliament the european people's party has voted to suspend your ruling party fidesz. is a very big well. to your party what does it mean and why would they do it because it would seem like they need support for then my may elections.
10:28 am
because you have to understand that migration the rules the agenda of the european union as such when it comes to politics or policies and being the largest political family coming from the rights. to censor all of the basically. you have a very colorful set of party is and that's why the migration there is an issue when it comes to the debates and the position of different parties on migration the first and our position is a very strong. position which is not shared by many. and since migration became the number one issue of your european politics it definitely raises emotions. very strong feelings of a stronger nonsense so that's why this is this is the core of the conflict that's

10:30 am
this is pension happened it took place. they had all of your prime minister's office has said that if suspension happens that means that fetuses leaving the p.p. yes but. then the decision was a little bit different than that because in english you say that the verse suspended but these are suspended by ourselves meaning that before devote there to suspend or exclude feed us we have announced that the suspend ourselves we step back we we become basically say that if you put our rights in the people on hold. and there's going to be a body or free persons appointed by the european peoples for these smart experienced the politicians who are used to used to be high ranking go.
