4:02 pm
and fourteen and as i speak to you the country's prime minister benjamin netanyahu is again meeting with the top military and political echelon here in tel aviv now earlier we did hear from the country's defense minister avigdor lieberman he threatened a large and painful military operation he said that israel would go to ball if the kites and balloons that are constantly flown from gaza into israel and has been for the past few weeks do not cease now the deadline given was friday afternoon and of course that deadline has passed the kite's continued and that again will be a contributory reason as to why we witnessing this flare up in violence there was earlier a meeting between netanyahu and the top brass the same time we're hearing from a senior israeli official that the coming hours will tell what will be israel's response now the israeli army has threatened that it will respond harshly and it continues to blame how much for the flare up in violence. the i.d.f. used today's it's like activity is treated by hamas throughout the last month with
4:03 pm
great severity hamas chose to skule the security situation a move the consequences for its actions. now israeli civilians who live along the gaza border have been ordered to remain near bomb shelters at the same time for the last few hours the hamas military wing has been evacuating military posts as well as commandos in anticipation that they will be an even stronger response from the israeli side only when the week there was a massive israeli air strike the biggest since the two thousand and fourteen war and that followed the country's prime minister benjamin netanyahu threatening that he would strike back at her must. be hit hard at policies clear when anyone seeks to harm us we will strike back with great force. now likely witness for the past four months there were again protests on friday
4:04 pm
particularly in the late afternoon along the israel gaza border according to the gaza health ministry four palestinians were killed and more than one hundred and twenty injured israel at the time issued a statement particularly saying that the army was reacting in retaliation to this flare up in violence and from the gaza side and it said at that time that it hit a targets we're now being told that in total some fifteen targets have been hit by israel and those being of course one must targets in the gaza strip their i.q. stations there the israeli army has used excessive force and in some cases has used live ammunition as i mentioned earlier the last time we saw such a flare up in violence was back in two thousand and fourteen in the operation protective edge which started roughly round about now and that was a war there witnessed more than two thousand palestinians killed and saw some seventy three israeli civilians die so of course the situation on the ground is extremely tense there's a lot of concern that we could be witnessing another full frontal confrontation. in
4:05 pm
the thanks of course with the latest. in the meantime another four palestinians are being killed just on friday brings the total number of those killed to more than one hundred thirty since the start of the protest as part of the great march of return a journalist who has more from the israel gaza border. nearly one hundred fifty meters away from carney the fans and as you see the palestinian youths protesters are describing and expecting expressing their rage by climbing this fans i have to say that this is one of the hardest days we have been covering. the protests on weekly basis for than five months and this is one of the hardest days today we saw explosions on both sides scores were injured they have been also hearing airstrikes and artillery shell tell every targets we have been also hearing explosions on the
4:06 pm
both sides today is a very very hard day it's very dangerous and this was one of the toughest days we have ever witnessed by live ammunition tear gas airstrikes and a lot in a lot of more weapons the israelis have been using against the palestinians. ok please speak now to dr rhythm burka he's an arab affairs commentator for the newspaper israel today good evening to you dr what do you think of the can i say all these strikes proportionate in terms of what with aggression we've seen coming from the palestinians and hamas. well i like very marsh the use of the word proportionality in the case of the usually conflict with the palestinians. abroad would expect that for good or is really only one this is not the way second world war was ended it was ended
4:07 pm
because never in wars you use proportionality to convince your enemy to stop us or still in our case we are actually drawn out of gaza strip there's no sold in gaza strip it could be a start for peace agreement in the future with palestinians once we weren't there. out of gaza strip very could create a wonderful scene the poor state every single day through our issues and we'll all win win situation but the happened to be on the other side there is. the opposite of what we got instead is an islamic emirate that threaten all israel threaten the environment cooperate. similar to isis al qaida and other. terrorist organizations attacked even in russia
4:08 pm
burning forest areas in russia participating in terrorist activities in chechnya this is the name of the game they are part of the net of islamic is some bugger's muslim brothers they are funded by iran and i believe that even the attack that we are now be watching that has been launched by hamas by missiles and snipers etc and kites carrying booby traps and popped of bombs and burning our forces in fields in fields all. by iran to divide the pressure will need on the north this is something to take into account. to go with. what would you do everybody would expect in case you will earn your territories are. attacked by digging tunnels
4:09 pm
launching besides sniping on the israeli citizens and from time to type even exposing a train a bus station oh always stopping any of our citizens and the remove a lot i believe that it's time to say enough is enough and that's what israel is about to do and i believe it's a question of time. maybe they. misinterpret our. hold on a. policy that we try to tolerate with violence but i believe that a minute of truth is very soon to be arrived we've seen more palestinian deaths on friday riven to think that this method more deadly student has something to mass will listen to. what they call the yorks on pressed protest riots is actually by dint of the clinician's
4:10 pm
mean to penetrate to penetrate into the world by the millions of palestinians to slaughter the easily settlers and the usually citizens along the border deep into israel in order to leave palestine and to demolish the state of israel they even do not hide it but did cruelty of their activities is the fact that they are using their own citizens as victims too there are. many people ations imagine that easily i.d.f. are now on the front of this conflict and the easily citizens are back in shelters in their case they are deep in the shelters and they are neglecting the population to suffer the results of their own mistakes by attacking israel this is something that anyone would reject and that is the enemy
4:11 pm
we are fighting and i believe that in a very very high price for their mistake this time israeli xining in shelters it's palestinians who are dying no it does israel need to use deadly force is there a better way. palestinian are dying because of their leadership don't forget that those two million palestinians in gaza strip elected hamas they are the one to remove hamas of the or out of power well we are waiting for them to do these they may manage to fight us when we were there they were a brave enough can say we don't want israel used to be in gaza strip now it's time for them to do the same activity against their own brothers they are killing them every given day don't you think that if you stop attempting to sell it to the
4:12 pm
summit juristic to do so. to power in gaza city and love your whores in damages not yourself here who are here taking care for themselves it is there to think about the cardinal keys of the police. not us we are our obligation to take care for all citizens and to punish the attack here we are trying the bellows not to hurt civilians we were before attacking we do a lot of things such as calling by by telephones warming the environment but at the end of the day those who should carry the responsibility for the. hiding down in the tunnels let them people. suffer from the results of their. aggression. or even appreciate coming on to speak to us here and i guess we've been burned out of the first commentator for the newspaper israel today.
4:13 pm
and to the news now and just as the dusted started to settle on the trumpeted summit in the finnish capitol hill thinking of the white house announced it was inviting the russian president to washington this autumn in an interview donald trump percents confirmed his intention to meet again with light emitting. second meeting potentially with with out of your proof. is that in the works is it planned has it been you know i would say it's in the works look we had a tremendous discussion on many things but fact is we got along very well i think i'd have a good relationship with you. so if the russian side does need to accept it will decline the invitation the decision to invite putin to the us has once again sparked outrage in the west to meet demand that even president trump now says interfered in u.s. democracy invited to the white house and now the president has apparently doubled down they stand by writing him to washington so let's collude again like we did
4:14 pm
last top spy in the united states he doesn't know how is that possible that the president of the united states is inviting putin for a second summit in a couple of months in the fall over at the white house because the president he works for is donald trump. wants press secretary sarah soundest confirmed the invitation on twitter. in helsinki president of the united states agreed to go in working level dialogue between the two security council staffs president trump asked john bolton to invite president putin to washington in the fall and those discussions already on the way we have the announcement from sarah huckabee sanders the white house press secretary this comes in the aftermath of quite a bit of media hysteria in response to donald trump's a meeting in helsinki with the russian president if you look at time magazine or the new yorker there's been quite a bit of hysteria in u.s.
4:15 pm
media now in recent comments the russian president has actually warned the world about the hysteria in the us media and about you know forces that would push false narratives about the meeting in helsinki to advance their own political gain. there are forces in the us ready to easily sacrifice russia u.s. relations for their political ambitions a satirical novelist once wrote about these sorts of people as beautiful and pathetic but these people who are the pitiful nor pathetic on the contrary they're pretty powerful if they can fool. to millions of the citizens and they counted in the aftermath of the helsinki meeting which took place on monday we've seen quite a bit of shifts and changes in how the us president has described that meeting his explanation and assessment of the events seems to go back and forth they have president putin he just said it's not russian i will say this i don't see any
4:16 pm
reason why it would be and should have been i don't see any reason why it wouldn't be russia. sort of a double negative it would be with us intelligence that. russian metal the new york twenty sixteen i would say that that is true but you haven't condemned putin specifically do you hold him personally responsible well i would because he's in charge of the country getting along with president putin getting along with russia is a positive not a negative if that doesn't work out i'll be the worst enemy he's ever had the worst he's ever had so this new announcement that trump is indeed planning to invite the president of russia to the united states to the white house for another meeting it fits in with a recent tweet from trump he said he was looking forward to a second meeting with the russian president but many people are wondering what will happen next as trump seems to have gone back and forth and as trump faces widespread media hysteria and criticism for the fact that he met with the russian

4:19 pm
a small bottle that they believed was the source of the contamination and that appears to correspond to interviews that charlie rose brother has given to the media saying that when he visited charlie really in hospital he had said that he seemed to recall giving his partner a small bottle just before they became very well whether or not that bottle was the source of the nerve agent used to attack the script piles or whether it was from the same batch is still very much unclear. and in recent days there's been intense speculation in the u.k. media about the investigation into that original attack on the script pal's leaks from the police probe claim that investigators have used c.c.t.v. images to identify two russian culprits who allegedly fled the u.k. immediately after the attack on the square piles but there hasn't been any official

4:22 pm
here men and women and yes even children fought for three years they held out. to. think i was a pretty for my family with basic game seats was very. forcible to describe it is impossible to express it. but on. this latest deal was made by the syrian government and yet the. previously. in syria islam ists let seven thousand civilians leave the two towns and the syrian government releases hundreds of militants from prisons the rebels have lost the two villages they use this bugging chips for years they have also lost swathes

4:25 pm
expressed dismay over blocks comments blocking orderly offends people who look like me but our whole national history and identity this isn't worth your government official minister block is undermining efforts by this government to make joint agreements in europe on the proper reception of refugees bloc has apologized for his remarks saying they were meant to spark debate not to offend so we decided to put the issue up for conversation with independent journalist lucre vague and un coordinator of minorities mohammed circle. he says things which up and former unfortunately real is that multicultural societies that were promised to the perfect twenty first century site is don't function in the west at least in western europe i think this last remark you just based on. ignorance of how can societies can bring together
4:26 pm
a big example i can ensure we can witness is the walk up the french team for example look at french team french team contains a multicultural society france beat another team from a small country from the balkans and all the players in this small team of the country of origin so there is no rule to be taken out of that to meet the multiculturalist that doesn't function is what you have communities living next to each other and not mixing it is very easy for example for patients to. melton and become members of society but we have some some part of the population that refuse it to want to impose their culture in the public space like islam for example democracy can only be based on respect respect of or that are each other culture respect it comes also from form not to fear from other people culture from the other society we import misery we have a social security system which is based on the contribution of everyone and the
4:27 pm
problem is that the millions that come to europe never participated they never contributed and they come with families look at examples off the continent africa if we have left africa alone would not have seen african migrated to to to europe if we have not it would not have sucked the richness of africa there diamond the gold the oil and those people who stayed in their own country that would be years and years no no if you have. been in your result when the laws of the world to try to invade other countries and critical of police countries and they complain why. immigrant come back to europe because you've conquered they conquered this country and they impose laws that you believe come back to with us if you when it's right in england does it right spring is here migrating they ask you for the black in the sixties to come and work in england same for the indian this is not people are how the choice is by force is not a choice minorities are welcome when they are minorities when it is a real inspiration in millions no and it doesn't stop live in england for thirty
4:28 pm
years in europe for thirty five years i believe because the multicultural has made europe as rich of this country is not by wiping someone else and it's not about. you know imposing someone else culture in another i didn't see that i would like to see or read integration more. the hash tag walk away used by people abandoning the us democratic party has been picked up by the media is just the trend is actually the work of russian automated accounts or bots trying to sow discord we spoke to the creator of the walkway movement to find out more. big or do you think that a walk or a campaign is comprised of russian butts i would suggest that they check out our facebook page which is where the campaign really takes place that's how we campaign go there on facebook and what you'll find is video testimonials of actual human beings who are looking into the cameras and telling their stories and the minister
4:29 pm
brands the deal i was instantly hope to his message to democrats don't care about us not one bit they walked away from us a long time ago and it's time for us to do the same i chose to walk oh they're telling their stories about why they're walking away to the left and there's people in the raid were also telling their stories about reclaiming their voice and the narrative of what it means to be a conservative which has been hijacked by the left they're telling you know what it means to be conservative and what their values are and welcoming people who are talking we less so i mean this is a pretty easily disputable thing these are real people making real video testimonials and you can see them with your own eyes or of the movement whose motto is not just the hash tag has skein date strong following online with more than sixty thousand subscribers on facebook new cases of former democratic supporters abandoning the party's ideals are emerging every day the media pinning walk
4:30 pm
away on russian bots as the movement was mentioned by a site that tracks twitter accounts linked to alleged russian interference is called the hamilton project but the site itself says the media got it wrong most of the third party reporting on the dashboard continues to appear with some variation of the headline russian books are pushing x. this is inherently inaccurate they're not all in russia we don't even think they're all commanded in russia at all we think some of them are legitimately passionate people that are just really into promoting russia. it's brandon strike again founder of walk away on why democratic officials are trying to denigrate the movement and i think it's an incredibly desperate attempt by the left wing politicians and the democrats to explain away the fact that people are leaving their party and there are no longer how beat what's going on on the last. you know it's like these.
