"Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced plans to annex Palestinian lands, promising to quote apply Israeli sovereignty to the Jordan Valley and the Northern Dead Sea immediately if elected. While some speculated that that was just campaign talk today, Netanyahu's annexation plans, which have been condemned by the United Nations, as a violation of international law, could be coming to fruition. If Netanyahu does follow through thousands of Palestinians in the Jordan Valley in areas north of the dead Sea could face displacement and effectively become stateless. Joining me now to talk about the consequences of annexation and US public opinion on Israeli policies is Omar Barghouti, a Palestinian human rights defender and co founder of the BDS movement based in the West Bank. And Shibley Telhami is a professor at the University of Maryland and senior fellow at the Brookings Institution. Omar Shibley. Thanks for joining me, Thank you. Chibli. Let's start with you. Ah, brief explanation if you will of annexation and why it's on the table right now. Well, first of all, Israel has been occupying the West Bank and Gaza since 1967 in that war, and obviously annexation is illegal under international law in the U. S. I also agreed with that up until the Trump administration annexation means essentially making the territory part of Israel on applying. He's really sovereignty over the territory. So clearly, there is international opposition to this all over the world. The difference here is that you haven't administration in the United States not only that supports annexation. In violation of international law, but actually proposed it you have a trump plan for the Middle East that actually proposed significant annexation of the West Bank, almost 40% Of the West Bank to be annexed by Israel. And obviously that has generated huge storm internationally. But even domestically and even within Israel itself, I would say up to a point The reason for that is very, very straightforward. Up until now, you know, people have said the best solution for the conflict is a two state solution. A lot of people have said it's died a long time ago, and I would see even Mohr experts. Off them, at least say that's true. But American political elites still believe this is the solution. And when you have annexation, it becomes impossible that it forces us atleast to choose between a Israel as a Jewish state and Israel as a democratic state, which obviously would become very problematic if you have a Palestinian majority, so that has really created Imager crisis. Omar, You are a co founder of the BDS movement, which stands for boycott, divestment and sanctions and the movement is to end. International support for Israel's influence in Palestine. Now you live in the West Bank in Ramallah. What could annexation mean for Palestinians there? As professor Telhami said. Annexation has been going on for decades, but it's been mostly informal, defacto annexation. What Israel is planning to do now is formal or the jury annexation on both of them are equally illegal under international law, D'azure annexation or formal annexation would basically as as you stated in the introduction make thousands of Palestinians who live in the occupied territory. Of the West Bank that Israel plans to annex it will make them a stateless. It will make them non citizens in the state of Israel. This as dozens of few and experts have said crystallizes a 21st century apartheid quote Unquote. Indeed, many international experts, many parliamentarians, more than 1000 parliamentarians in Europe have said. That this annexation must be opposed very strongly because otherwise it undermines the international law system as it is the law based system as we know it since World War two, so Israel should not get away with this. A similar acts of annexation throughout history have been met with sanctions except when it comes to Israel. Nothing has been enforced. Palestinian civil site is stood in a unified way and issued an appeal to the world, saying We cannot stop annexation. Neither the ongoing decades old the fact annexation norther coming the looming deja annexation alone. We need to cut the links of complicity and impunity. That allow Israel to continue this theft ofthe occupied Palestinian land. And this apartheid system that has let me ask you this. What exactly is the BDs movement doing right now in the face of this potential annexation. Way launched a campaign to impose targeted lawful sanctions against Israel, but because we're against indiscriminate sanctions so specifically called for a ban on arms, trade and military cooperation with Israel. A suspension off trade and cooperation agreements with Israel. Prohibition of Israel's illegal settlement products from entering any country cutting US military funding of Israel's regime of apartheid. And that's basically a very necessary demand because the US is the main funder and defender ofthe Israel's violations of Palestinian rights and finally resuscitated reconstituting the U. N Special Committee against apartheid. To investigate those roads Apartheid Since we launched this appeal, we had massive responses across the world, including from seven former Latin American presidents to South African presidents, hundreds of parliamentarians, political parties all over the world in Europe and elsewhere. And so that the response has been great, because I think most people realize if Israel gets away with this It will enable other states that look at other territories that they do want to annex. It will enable them to do so and use Israel as an example. Stably. You mentioned that President Trump and his relationship with Netanyahu as part of the reason why this annexation is happening or potentially happening right now. I'm wondering in your research at the University of Maryland. What have you found about how Americans feel more broadly about Israeli policies under President Trump? Well, First of all, you know, there were actually a couple of questions, including about TGS, because we've been doing pulling on this so with regard to PDS to stay with that subject, I've done a pull loss October, the University of Maryland to see how much people know about it because it's become an issue. Particularly after the midterm election. And there's a debate even in the mainstream about it. And there are about 1/2 of the American public who say they've heard a little about it and off those who have heard about it. More people oppose it, then supported in general, about half oppose it. But among Democrats who flips more Democrats supported that oppose it. And When you asked them. Is this a legitimate movement or not? You find that overwhelmingly. Democrats say it's and legitimate movement over one long, Republicans say it's not a legitimate movement, so that's just as a background on We're even the partisan divide even on the BDs in the U. S. But with regard to the Trump lend that too, By the way, most Americans haven't really followed this. I mean, well, look, we're focused on our immediate crisis. The pandemic, the racial issue, So what we found is really 70% of the public say they follow this very little, if at all. Chibli and Omar. We have to take a quick break, but we'll be back with more stick with.

S. presidential election from Russia to Ukraine some of you on this committee appear to believe that Russia and its security services did not conduct a campaign against our country and the pops somehow for some reason Ukraine days this is a fictional narrative that is being perpetrated in propagated by the Russian security services themselves the unfortunate truth is that Russia was the foreign power that systematically attacked democratic institutions in twenty sixteen our US correspondent David Willis is following the hearings does he agree that Fiona hill's testimony was perhaps the most scathing contribution so far well that's right media and Fiona hill denounced conspiracy theory that's been up held by many Republicans including president trump that it was Ukraine and not Russia that interfered in the twenty sixteen presidential election the entire US intelligence committee a community and the former special counsel Robert Muller concluded sometime ago that it was Russia that mounted the campaign of hacking and misinformation intended to boost the candidacy of Donald Trump nevertheless the notion of Ukrainian involvement in the presidential election was one of the things of course the president trump honest laundromat Zelinsky to look into doing that now infamous phone call on the twenty fifth of July this year and miss hill who is a rusher expert called

decide on whether to draft formal charges what are known as articles of impeachment against president trump sometime after the thanksgiving holiday which is in a week's time it's expected that the house of representatives will vote on whether or not to impeach the president and if they do then and and he is impeached in the charges will go to the Republican controlled Senate for a trial on

criminal charges in three corruption cases he was a former ally to the prime minister but said he had to protect the rule of law it does look like a sort of a short lived all combined with a heavy heart I decided to invite him over the line with a heavy heart but also wholeheartedly out of a deep sense of duty the rule of law and public interest the accusations relate to cases that involve gifts Mister Netanyahu received from wealthy figures as well as his alleged efforts to get better media coverage in return for favors it's unclear what today's development means for his future it's the first time a sitting prime minister has been indicted here but according to the law he can keep his job until there's a verdict his opponents are saying he needs to step down and his political

there's more than two hundred and seventy cases people say it's more than that all four protesters were shot in the eye but guns all rubber bullets on Tuesday the the head of the Chilean police finalists banned the use of of those weapons a case processes these are very serious charges that I'm with you to national is lodging how has the Chilean government responded well the only comments by presence of US him being in a so far it was that easy there may have been some cases where the security forces disregarded the rules of engagement for mass demonstrations so he acknowledged that they made that may have been cases where that where there was too much force used what I find amazing here is that the fact that I'm missing some national saying that there was a deliberate strategy devised by the government and the security forces to try to intimidate the monsters who had a month of protest that still going on they started with protests about a rise in the metro fares in Santiago but then became a much bigger movement a case in a quality in Chile in the that still a lot to be done politically to solve that problem get out of Russia the World Health Organization is

"Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is giving the White House, his full support, but is his own country behind him. Shlomo Brom a former Brigadier General in the Israeli defence force, and now works at the institute for national security. Studies in Tel Aviv. Shlomo brome. Is there any consensus in Israel's defense and foreign policy establishment over Iran and what to do? I don't think there is a consensus, I say that they're large of these early, defense policy community was not happy of, for example of President Trump's decision at the wiz, oil on the JCP LA, the not Wizz air, because said they saw that the, although this agreement to file phone impact some very potent weaknesses. It was better than agreement at all. And so far, that is not listen to sink that this kind of assessment is wrong because okay, there is a very strong pressure on Iran. With the sanctions in Iran is a very a pool economic situation. But the dead didn't change Iran's determination to continue with the Covent policies in the Middle East yellow. It's five it's five on the consensus in Israel, a Weser, this American policy, that is supported by Israeli government is the right policy. So given all that. How much support do you think the government in Israel could get from the Israeli public for a regional conflict? Well as usually will get a lot of support at the beginning of the conflict because when the context starts than people tend to, you know together around the flake. But what we let let is depending on the nature of the conflict, the damages that we live in that the failure of successes that we live, so one can very outlived predict what will be the reaction of these early public opinion. But when Isreaeli things things they've heard before, from a rainy in officials like we're going to erase Israel from the map of this continues. How do Railly's react? How do they react today? Well, listen. In principle is the government that Iran is in animated that we should deal with, because it is actually I think the only state in the Middle East that doesn't accept the existence of the state of Israel and one to the end of it. But that doesn't mean that there's not debate concerning the ways they set said to be dealt with in your judgment. Shama Brown is a confrontation with Iran at all in Israel's interest. I don't think that it is in his interest. I think the idea. The interest to delay this kind of conflict who's the Iran as much as possible end, if it's possible even to prevent it for may epidemic at time yet how far would Isreaeli officials go to prevent that. I mean, if, if Donald Trump were say, pulled into a conflict with Iran by his security advisers would Benjamin Netanyahu, try and resist what he try and dissuade them from doing this. I don't think he will do it because is basic policies are dependent on the close relationship with the Trump administration. So you would prefer, not oppose the policies or the decisions of this administration. Paying for that NASA reasonable possible costs, of course if the cost will be two I a yesterday. But the venture I think it will follow the legislation while I really appreciate your thoughts. That's Shlomo Brom policy analyst, and retired Brigadier General in the Israeli defence force. Thank you very much, y'all. Let me take you back to may twenty-ninth.

Let's not get kinky. Now. The matter of proofreading I have to begin my report tonight with a correction in my report last week. I suspect you will recall, George, I alluded to a site in from Nepal. Mo- California up north of LA that reportedly had occurred in that city at eleven o two pm on Tuesday, February fifth and I'd like to compliment a coast listener for having caught the air. I agree wholeheartedly with that party that the pulsing light reported was the tumbling first stage of a minute, man. Three missile that had just been launched from Vandenberg about a minute prior to the sighting in good so case closed on that report from Nepal. Mo- also came close to posting a report last week about an alleged sighting of a disc shaped object in the skies near Monterey, California. But the witness now reports that he believed that may have been a blimp host possibly obscured by fog, I compliment the witness markdown in Monterey who by the way as a regular. Coach listener and probably listening tonight just goes to show Georgia. No, one bats a thousand and in particular UFO, investigators on the subject of more interesting cases last Friday, I received a written report from an adult male who described a chilling incident. He had experienced back and approximately July nineteen eighty six he thinks it was as a thirteen year old boy camped out of doors with friends in with a friend in south Seattle. They both were still wide awake at about midnight on that summer night when a solid white light either a severe or a disc they thought move slowly over the two campers about treetop level headed from east to west. He writes that it appeared to both of the young lads that the strange object was just barely brushing the tops of surrounding trees, and it was close enough that they're binoculars vision allowed them to ask the made its distance from. And it was very close. They estimated that it was approximately twenty feet in diameter, and it was moving at perhaps one or two miles an hour. The next morning. One of the young fellows tried to over the breakfast able to tell his father what the two of them had seen any was roundly chastised by his father for fibbing, the two witnesses. He writes never spoke of the incident until years later as adults when they agreed that the event had taken place in their recollections differed, only in one or two minor details and also worth noting is the two young campers were located just about a mile to the east. So seatac airport. So the strange craft was very close to that major airport and headed directly towards it. Second. And last report I'd like to touch on comes from was reported to me just last Friday. A report from a mother who is reporting on behalf of her fifteen year old daughter who just the day before that is the seventh of February at about five. Thirty PM have been out feeding her horses near Silverton, Oregon, which lies just to the east of the capital city Salem when the daughter sends that her animals both horses and the family dog. We're acting very strangely. The horses were agitated the daughter reported to her mother, which was very unusual for them at feeding time and the dog had left the corral area and was attempting to get back to the house, clearly agitated and nervous. Well, the long story short is this gal young fifteen year old daughter looked up just in time to see a black mass very indistinct had no lights on it. Pass overhead from south to north. She watched it for just a few seconds before disappeared from her site within seconds. She saw a pink or of light being radiated from the northern sky from her vantage point, very very interesting report.
