ah ah ah, ah, south africa won't be pushed around the country's popsicle about responds to the u . s. secretary of state as he tries to convince britt story as a severed ties with russia and china. that we exist under some push is i think the unfounded as the u. s. excuses israeli attacks on gaza as self defense. we look at how western countries turn a blind eye to palestinian victim, but bend over backwards when it comes to the conflict in ukraine. and pro key of social media shares a video that appears to show ukranian troops dropping
11:01 pm
a bomb on russian soldiers as a retrieval body from the battlefield. ah, good morning, 6 am here in moscow and from wherever you're catching us, i'm fear all is about with the top news stories this hour and from around the globe . happy to have you join us. south africa won't be pushed around. that's according to the countries foreign affairs minister. after the u. s. secretary of state tries to convince pretoria to sever ties with russia and china. instead, south africa, top people might raises concerns about those using the countries natural resources . these stabilizing the region. this fear that we exist under some push is i think, a totally a rear, unfounded. a belief in the relationship that we have with eva country is also
11:02 pm
a concern about countries that have mineral interests in african countries are not there as a destabilizing force. so i think we need to look at the full, pretty thorough of problems that give rise to insecurity, bad governance, and the absence of democracy on the african continent. it's not a one country problem that has anthony blake and travel super toria with a speech on new policies for african countries. while washington seeks to contain russian and chinese influence in the region during the trip. when can blame the food prices in africa on the war and ukraine, and called for stronger partnership with the continent to deal with that? we've seen the repercussions of russia's warn ukraine are, which are felt across the planet. and especially across africa in rising food and energy prices, what we see most of all is a true partnership between the united states and africa. we don't want an imbalanced or transactional relationship. and our commitment to
11:03 pm
a stronger partnership with africa is not about trying to outdo any one else by these you fall by and is he's, he's a tear. it was to we as south africa in africa from china. so united states was a trading pot, mammals actually got on site. i ross, yeah, in china me where to protect is such a coinciding with the visit, the white house release as a document detailing it's new strategy towards sub saharan regions. the plan promotes, he was involvement in african nations policies, including issues such as pandemic, climate change, and food security. and while lincoln says, the u. s. won't tell africa how to behave. it also shows washington, not happy with the continents ties with russia and china. the people's
11:04 pm
republic of china by contrast, sees the region as an important arena to challenge the rules based international order. and we can u. s. relations with african peoples and governments rush of use the region as a permissive environment for paras, stables, and private military companies, often fermenting instability for strategic and financial benefit. u. s. accusation tavara don't prevent deepening ties as china is now south africa's biggest trading partner. moscow trade with the country is also on the rise with monthly exports from russia. this january growing more than 4 times compared to january of last year. and while the u. s. is still trying to convince the region that russia and china are the root of all troubles. the african public seems to find more faith and ties with bricks, countries than with the west. i think more african countries and carries to be better off the brakes. and you can see that the bill of mon keane's, i love rica, i'm shoe ice also, spinoza, roma, joining that cloud. you have such developed countries now like yo, yo,
11:05 pm
china and i show which can kick us to other countries in terms of having to achieve the same living off of infrastructure economy the in, at this point in time, america has been playing with us for a long time it's now time for for bricks to grow. jo. oh man, house of the conservative daily podcast says there's a reason why african nations don't believe in us promises. i don't think the u. s. has ever respected the sovereignty of other nations. and when they talk about these stabilization, they can look no further than themselves. and the sad part about with the us says, and it's just a bunch of rhetoric and look, i'm, i'm an american and i'm proud to be an american. but the apparatus within the us government has long been a d, stabilizing force in almost putting at, you know, african place for they can't grow that can't excel at the same rate, that other countries across the world are growing. and that has a lot more to do with their natural resources and how they can get access to those
11:06 pm
resources. ready so no, i don't believe they respect the sovereignty of any decision that they make. and i, and i am actually fearful that it's going to become a tug of war and the people of those african natives. 54 nations are the ones that are going to suffer and the african nation. firstly, south africa does not trust the united states. many nations don't trust united states. i don't think anything united states does right now will be seen as anything other than a grand standing and making empty promises that they will mirror into the future not be able to deliver. and it's news tragic strategy, washington also sites a long and proud history of supporting africa. however, jo open again says the u. s. has not always been helpful for the countries of the continent. we can actually look at a country called sudan and many people that live to your station understand what happened in sudan. there's a referendum voltage for the country and half. and in between that country was the avia district, which is the oil rich district and sudan was long a partner of the united states until president alba sheer stood out to us interest
11:07 pm
and said, now we're not going to do that. and so the, the chaos instability that ensued in the propaganda was spread across the globe. and obviously the i, c, c, indictments are proven to be false and they just kept their finger on it. so any instability that we've seen thus far has typically been the. busy that the hands of, of u. s. interests cia interest f b, i would say out of yeah, but no shadow interest. and so that the chaos has been created in those nations is largely largely been a part of the western strategy in order to take natural resources. now to gaza, where at least $44.00 people have been killed and hundreds wound dead after 3 days of israeli bombing airstrikes have ravaged residential neighborhoods and civilian infrastructure. here are some of the latest, but it's from the scene. mm hm.
11:08 pm
with a fragile seas far between israel and the palestinian islamic jihad millicent group reportedly held through monday as hospitals in gaza, struggled to treat the many civilians injured during the weekend of hostilities. palestinian officials say some 650 buildings were damaged. before a truce came into effect on sunday, at the height of the tensions palestinian militants and israeli armed forces, exchange rocket barrages, and airstrikes. as gaza again reels from devastation. the un security council has held an emergency meeting to discuss attend situation on the ground. the event saw the palestinian observer call for more global attention to the humanitarian situation and gaza. while israel gained support from washington after it accused the palestinian islamic jihad group of targeting civilians. there is no room for
11:09 pm
false narratives. the fact are clear, the palestinian islamic jihad deliberately fired 1100 rockets. it is rarely civilians, with roughly $200.00 lending inside the gaza strip, killing innocent palestinians, and among them young children. this is not an assessment. this is the hard truth. and israel has all the proof, we fully support israel's right to defend his people against terrorist threats, including from rocket fire, aimed at civilians or without regard to them. and while the u. s. ambassador to the un justifies israel's bombing of gaza as self defense. archie is rachel blevins investigates allegations of double standards when it comes to western officials is view on conflicts in other countries. 3 days of clashes between israel
11:10 pm
and the palestinian militant group included a number of what israel called preemptive airstrikes on gaza. which left at least 40 for palestinians dead including 15 children and more than $300.00 wounded. yet despite the photos and videos that were shared across social media, which showed israel clearly targeting heavily populated residential areas, there was virtually no outrage from the west. in fact, president biden has praised the money the u. s. spent on the iron dome system and says that it saved countless lives in israel, and he is not the only one turning a blind eye to the collateral damage in gaza. we absolutely fully support israel's right to defend itself against terrorist groups that are taking the lives of innocent civilians in israel. the u. k. stands by israel and it's right to defend itself. we condemn terrorist groups firing it civilians and violence which has resulted in casualties on both sides. we call for a swift end to the violence. france condemns the firing of rockets into his railey
11:11 pm
territory and reiterates its unconditional commitment to the security of israel. the focus was mainly on israel's right to defend itself with no questions asked as to why dozens of palestinian civilians were being killed while the israeli death toll remains at 0. it's clearly a very different approach than the one western leaders have taken in, in recent months. where they mourned every ukrainian casualty that was reported and used it to condemn what they called the russian brutality. the u. k. stones, united in condemning, rushes reprehensible behavior. there were no shades of gray in this conflict. it is about right and wrong. we can't become numb to this. we can't normalize this. this is the reality. what's going on every single day, as long as russia's brutality against ukraine continues. that's why these to come to an end, talked on the shouldn't do. international justice must prevail. those who committed
11:12 pm
these crimes will have to answer for them. and speaking of concern over civilians being killed, those western officials were nowhere to be found when ukraine and it's all true. nationalist killed thousands and don bass over the last 8 years. not only are the tears reserved for certain cases, but so is the selective terminology west tends to use in their eyes, ukrainians, or heroes, whoever, right? you force their will over regions that have declared their independence. but it's the palestinians who are labeled as terrorist, even as some of them live under an internationally recognized israeli occupation. and the hypocrisy is plain to see as headlines that praised ukrainian defenders now condemned palestinian militants out gun, but defiant, ukrainian twin cities defenders ready for russian attack. palestinian militants, fire rockets at israel after gaz, airstrikes. and that's not the only double standard. the west seems to have
11:13 pm
president biden spoke out on sunday, saying he welcome the news of a cease fire in gaza while refusing to condemn his as rally allies for the killing of civilians. however, the u. s. continues to refuse to encourage ukraine to negotiate a truce with russia. in fact, anyone who dares to try and do so. 6 has been met with allegations that they must be pro russian if they are advocating for peace and ukraine. that includes former u. k. labor party leader, jeremy corbett, boring homes in, isn't going to bring about a solution. it's only going to prolong and exaggerate this will. why fi disappointing is that a hobby? any of the world's leaders use a word and he is not the only one. former german chancellor, gerard schroeder, hungary and president victor, oregon. and even henry kissinger have made similar statements. and they have all been accused of being kremlin apologise, and that ukraine appears to be the only place where the west is not allowed to
11:14 pm
mention peace. and yes, that's including the conflict between kosovo and serbia, where the e was quick to set up talks or the taiwan strait, where the g 7 immediately called for stability in response to rising tensions between beijing and washington instead of urging for peace, ukraine gets even more war as the binding ministration has approved another $1000000000.00 and lethal aid, which is notably one of its largest packages so far. an apparent reminder that nations are only allowed to defend themselves when the u. s. says they can, just as they are only allowed to pursue peace with their neighbor if washington is on board with the plan. with engaging reactions to the conflict from both israeli and palestinian sides, here's what most and a bore a modern from the palestinian non government organization network. and alon leo, former director general of israel's foreign ministry, told us about the situation we are used to it. i have the cease
