from stupid. stunts on t.v. . if you're just joining us a very warm welcome to. the headlines for you now. formally announced he's running in the presidential election next march the country's good wealthiest person of the political stage earlier this year when he headed up the right course of political party only to quit over disagreements with party members. thousands flood the center of moscow again but this time it's the supporters of the victorious united russia party. rallies staged the results of the parliamentary
9:31 am
vote. second a multi-billion euro rescue package amid skepticism over the efficiency of the emergency measure that's also wisecracks within the e.u. widening. the franco german plans to create a common school give me an. occupy protesters take their rallies to the new level they plan a shutdown of america's west coast ports from san diego all the way to the move follows a series of police raids the result of dozens of arrests. israeli airstrikes on gaza a palestinian bid for statehood and an arab spring in the background the middle east peace process is facing more challenges than ever so we spoke to influential palestinian politician mustafa barghouti about what happens next.
9:32 am
with me i have dr mustafa barghouti the president of the palestinian national initiative and a member of the palestinian parliament dr thank you very much for joining us here on r.t. what palestinian still push ahead in the state what but despite the fact that it seems a two thirds majority in support of it is highly unlikely there can be no vote in the security council now because the united states already obstructed that by. denying of a committee that are it to ask for what has american pressure paid off yes more from one side i mean many countries are doing what the united states and israel want. but at the same time i think many of them feel shameful about it we've seen an example of that of the french what the newness call france is that will opportune in the security council get it what it taught us and. many countries like
9:33 am
spain and france. and belgium and others have the people on our side their governments cannot go against the will of their own people but if the people are with the palestinians why then is it so difficult to get a two thirds majority in the security council because the united states still has the power of pressuring many countries because the israeli lobby is playing its cards pressuring many many world leaders because of the hypocrisy of western politics you know this speak about freedom of the syrian people respect of human rights in libya but they feel the thought of god knows that this is also needed for palestine once you have membership in the general assembly you'll have access to the international criminal court how do you plan to use this and do you think the israelis are concerned by it they are totally concerned about this this is maybe one of them in reasons why they are trying to obstruct our membership in the united nations. why because they know they have committed war crimes why because they know
9:34 am
that many of their leaders and officers. generals have committed crimes against humanity and i think we will do everything we can to give these guys one due to the court to the international court of justice when president obama came to power they were high hopes that the united states would play a positive role in the israeli palestinian conflict do you see his opposition to the statehood bid as a stab in the back totally we see it as a stubborn about but also we see it as a great feel you big failure of an american president who failed to respect his own words he himself promised that palestine should become a member of the e.u. and by november two thousand and eleven and how now he's leading not only not voting for us but he's leading a war against our membership what the american administration is doing and what the american congress is doing is in total contradiction with everything that they
9:35 am
speak about in terms of the principles of respecting human rights and some of them a nation and the principles of freedom you see the palestinian issue has become in a way. some kind of and instrument or some kind of a method to explore the very oppositions of each comes to the cost of what mr obama did and his administration has done has been that the united states has lost its position as a mediator in the middle east process and just how difficult is it to go back to negotiations against the backdrop of the u.n. statehood bid it's not difficult to go to negotiations it's impossible. as long as allowed to continue to build settlements as long as government is the government we have there would be no negotiations and that's why i feel sorry for the waste of money. spending so much taxpayers' money on travelling and moving and coming and
9:36 am
going without a new visa as long as the people in the court the governments and the courts that as long as they don't decide to pressure israel seriously have to stop settlement activities we will see more progress just how much of a mandate does the palestinian president mahmoud abbas have to negotiate on behalf of the palestinian people or has his position in the statehood bid been weakened his speech in the united nations give him a lot of support but did not give similar support to his political movement people gave him support because they thought he had to preserve palestinian dignity and palestinian resilience and he can continue to do that if he really at the moves in the direction of motion of a conciliation and national unity is how mass ready for national unity yes i think most of the people in hamas and fatah have already what they need to see is
9:37 am
a courage of their leaders what they need to see is dating taken by the leaders where they would put. what they can put the palestinian national interests above their own factional. parties and interests in a conversation with obama the french president nicolas sarkozy caught the israeli premier netanyahu elia do you think that there is disappointment with as well among its allies and what options does this leave israel with. moving very wrong about the problem in israel is that. it's not just not any. shift to the right among the israeli public because you have an explanation that up to now the israeli public opinion till now the israeli public benefit in from occupation is benefiting from the apartheid system is benefiting from confiscating and i will water ninety percent of our water it is good for you to buy them with the passage of it with the
9:38 am
creation of every new settlement block israel is killing the very last opportunity of two state solution which means they will have to deal with one. left solution and that is one state. which means they can never dream of something called the state which means they have to respect a situation where there might not be even a majority and one democratic state that is the price that israel is paying if they continue this path while israel suffer if economic problems continue to mount in the united states i believe i believe so because united states is becoming weaker with the passage of. unfortunately make some forces in the united states like new homes more aggressive. unfortunately this economy weakness is dragging out the driving some people in the united states toward very dangerous military adventures
9:39 am
like attacking iran for assistance. because they think of the control of oil completely they would control energy and this with we can control the economy of russia china many other countries in this world with israel's isolation growing are you concerned that it could take an even more aggressive stance against the palestinians i think they are already aggressive enough. and there are acts of war crimes that took place in gaza beyond the scope of their policy in the occupied territories of some of our system of apartheid that is much worse than the apartheid system that prevailed in south africa at one point of time is shameful. if i was an israeli i would feel very shameful what about internal problems that the israeli government is facing particularly visa vi the social protests is the search for an external enemy whether it be iran or palestine a way to divert attention away from the problems the government faces at home this
9:40 am
is one possibility and i think that any on but our guard but i think to divert attention from the internal social problems from their internal divisions by creating a war maybe with or by mobilizing the united states to conduct a war on iran that's their game each time you speak to them about the palestinian issue of the stop speaking about iran do you think israel would attack iran i think they are looking for an opportunity to do that and probably the first scenario is that the united states attacks iran first and then to contribute or to the attack iran first and then that are going ited states into a war with iran what israel is doing here is a continuation of their policy that was declared the back in one thousand nine hundred ninety one the dual containment of iraq and iran they finished with that arc now they want to continue and i think they are going to proceed with that because they want to have the possibility of becoming. regional power.
9:41 am
i don't think we would succeed do you think there's a chance that turkey might one day replace israel as the u.s. says the main ally in this region if you look for example at it hosting the nato made all at it's turning its back on iran and syria it certainly seems as if turkey is wanting to play a greater role in the region then pured was was an american ally it's not new it was always a member of nato. but i think i see the changes in turkey in a more positive way i think. you see in the seventy's israel had two big allies in the division turkey and iran and then then there neutralized egypt to come divide the courts so they were in heaven then they lost it or now they've lost it and egypt i see all these things as positive changes i don't see the role as a negative one i think the change is ted key and egypt can practically change the
9:42 am
whole regional situation but there is one obstacle which prevents this vision the main obstacle that is the palestinians. i am sure that the vast majority of people would buy the stuff as much as the vast majority of egyptians and model cars and tunisia what happened when they were on was very important it short on the t.v. that the arab spring and the usual excuse me good luck to make the palestinians for a modulus on the contrary it is still in the same total for this was for the future of the stability of the season of peace and this illusion of economy development unquote policemen season is the diet a key to solving the person and so on i would palestinians to be free from occupation and having the right for freedom as well dr mustafa barghouti thank you very much for joining us here on r.t. thank you.
9:43 am
for sure is that so much of it was about the feeling that i think if we're going to give a real commitment full almost immediately to collapse of the soviet union twenty years ago the commonwealth of independent states would stop its regional can see by many. lose. its hts. us.
