"Julia Deputy KQED. Thank you so much. Julie. I'm Judy Woodruff on the next news. Our rethinking college how tribal universities are tackling long term disparities. That's Tuesday on the PBS news album. PBS news Hour is at three o'clock this afternoon here on KQED Public Radio. Good afternoon. I'm Marco were manure with the world. To have any chance at beating back climate change. The planet needs to get off of coal burning. It pumps out a lot of greenhouse gases. Last weekend, the world's richest countries promised to soon stop financing new coal fired power plants abroad. Leaders of the G seven summit made that pledge and pressure China to do the same. But within their own countries, the story of coal looks a little different. The world's environment correspondent Carolyn Beeler has more U N Secretary General Antonio Guterres, back in March called on developed countries to stop burning coal by 2030 Science tells us that it is essential to meet the Paris agreement goals and protect future generations. G seven members should take the lead and commit to this phase out at 27 June summit at the length lists that didn't happen. Chris Little Coat from the European climate change think tank E three. G says That was despite pressure from the U. K, the meeting's host. I think there is disappointment. That ultimately they couldn't be some stronger language than they agreed. Lippincott says the G seven's power comes from its ability to shape global norms. So if it wants the world to move away from burning coal, it should go first. Long time. Bangladeshi climate negotiator Muhsin Khan says it's an equity issue. The seven countries must show the leadership because the historically they have been the number one polluter. Coal provides about a third of the world's electricity and produces more planet warming emissions than oil or gas. Chris Lippincott says Five of the seven G seven countries have already committed to an end date for coal domestically. That includes France, Canada, Italy, Germany and the UK, So that leaves the United States and Japan without formal date. So what's the holdup for these two countries? In the U. S. Coal is already on the decline largely due to competition from cheaper natural gas. Coal plants are retiring, and no new ones are under development. But still, the U. S. Has stopped short of promising to shutter all its coal fired power plants by any specific date. We have the technology and we have the price structures in place. To completely be done with coal here in the US, The biggest impediment for us is political will shooter Chakraborty is the U. S lead for we don't have time to Social Media network for people concerned about climate change. She says moving away from coal is unpopular in places where it provides jobs. No. One place is more notable than West Virginia and Senator Joe mentioned whose vote is really critical for the upcoming infrastructure bill. And so for that reason, Biden is treading more gently than he would otherwise. In Japan, On the other hand, coal is actually on the rise. Clearly, Japan is not yet ready. To phasing out of coal Cameco Hilla to is the director of the Kiko or Climate network in Japan, she says after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster a decade ago, the country closed its nuclear power plants and started building coal plants to fill the energy gap. Japanese population doesn't want nuclear anymore. So we need to find a way to, you know, move away from coal. At the same time of moving away from nuclear, which is very challenging. Prime Minister Yoshida Suda has set a target of reaching that zero greenhouse gas emissions by the middle of the century. The government is trying to revive the nuclear industry. But it also says Cole is an important part of the energy mix. I think it's very mixed message that the government is sending at this stage. What is necessarily is to make a decision. We will move towards renewable so that a lot of efforts can be shifted. Towards that end. International pressure on richer countries to move away from coal will continue ahead of this fall's U. N climate summit. But domestic politics will keep shaping the decision making for the world. I'm Caroline Beeler. E. Coli bacteria. Best associated with food poisoning and product recalls. Some researchers in Israel may have found a way for E. Coli to save lives using the bacteria to help detect unexploded landmines were joined by Professor Shim Seong Balcon. He's a microbiologist at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, leading this research. First of all, Professor Belkin. How does this work exactly? How can E. Coli be used to help identify landmines? Landmines are not completely sealed and traces or vapors of Explosives can escape out of the mines, casing and accumulating the soil above the mind. This is the reason for example, that dogs may be trained to smell landmines, the do not actually smell the mind the smell the traces of explosives, which emanated from the mind. Now, if we can train dogs, we can also train bacteria to do the same. So that's what you've been able to do. Train these bacteria to sniff out TNT residue Train is a little too picturesque. What what we do we molecularly engineer it to respond to the presence of the target compounds by generating an optical signal in this case, bioluminescence So this is a very.

They say that they're going to be increasing the fines in order to punish the violators violence broke out.

Cannons and sponge tipped bullets in order to disperse protesters and writers in the streets. Violence in the neighborhood in jerusalem have increased in recent weeks over the impending eviction of some palestinian families. There the evictions are controversial because jewish organizations say that they owned the land and they have. The palestinian families are supposed to pay them rent according to their claims.

So if you want to check that out you can do so idea chief aviv. Havi finally arrived in the us last week after several postponed visits and he had plenty to say to american officials regarding the iran. Nuclear deal go heavy. Spent two days in meetings at the pentagon with us secretary of defense. Lloyd austin and several other prominent american military officials his message. The current nuclear deal with iran is too generous and lax oversight to prevent the country from developing nuclear weapons. former president. Trump withdrew the us from this deal which was originally drafted under the obama administration in two thousand fifteen president biden. Who famously served. As obama's vice president has repeatedly stated his intention to return to the deal and ultimately broker a longer and stronger. One general heavy is not. The first is really to travel to america in an effort to convince the biden administration not to reenter this agreement. Several delegations of leading israeli officials including the former mossad chief and national security adviser have also traveled to the us in recent months to urge officials to steer clear of this and share the huge significance of this issue to israel. Iran has time and again threat into israel to wipe it off the face of the map using nuclear bombs. They say they'll point one at israel and fire away and clear the entire nine million people off of the map. Co hobby was initially scheduled to travel to washington in lee april but his trip was cancelled when tensions between hamas and israel began to rise will keep you updated on if anything comes from this but the bottom administration has been pretty adamant that they do want to reenter this deal and that they're going to do so. Israel's on party says that they will not vote in favor of a law called the family reunification law. In my opinion it doesn't represent what it sounds like but the law prevents palestinians from automatically getting israeli citizenship. If they marry an israeli doesn't the family reunification law sound like if two people were part of a family previously and they got separated somehow. They will be reunited. That's what it sounds like to me. But it's not it's actually about marriage. Roy says the law is racist. The majority of applicants are arab israelis who are applying for their palestinians spouse to gain israeli citizenship. And of course. Sometimes there are jewish israelis who are also applying for a palestinian spouse to gain is really citizenship as well but the majority are arab israelis israeli. Legislators have kept this law in place because they say palestinian terrorists could abuse the right and enter into a marriage as a way to gain entrance and access to israeli territory and that they could use this option to map out potential bombings and terrorist activity. So they tried to prevent people from getting immediate access to citizenship through marriage. For those of you who might be confused. We are talking about israeli citizens in israeli territory. Living in israel they are trying to create marriages with palestinian people living in palestinian authority territories so for example the west bank and at times also the gaza strip which is governed by hamas. The law expires on july sixth. So we'll update you there about whether or not this law is going to be signed again. Or if it's going to erode a reputable israeli think tank released a report saying nearly fifty percent of those killed. During the recent gaza israel war were part of a terrorist group. The mayor ameet intelligence and terrorism information center reviewed more than two hundred palestinian deaths. Forty eight percents of them. According to this report were due to misfires from rockets that kamaz launched in the tiny gaza strip. I liked to explain this to family and friends when they ask me. The gaza strip is not a large please. So if you fire out a rocket from within the gaza strip it is likely that it is going to hurt people nearby..

"Started up again in the gaza strip this morning for the first time. Since the end of last month's fighting it all started when the new israeli government allowed a far-right jewish march to pass through palestinian areas of jerusalem in response the palestinian militant group hamas sent arsim balloons into southern israel.

What's the History of US-Israel Relations?
"Joined first of all from jerusalem by david makovsky distinguished fellow at the washington institute and professor in middle east studies at johns hopkins university david festival. I think when people think about this relationship now it's assumed that this full-throated barely critical support for israel is an article of faith for the united states but if we think back to the foundation of israel in nineteen forty eight was that always the case now not at all the foreign policy establishment of the united states was dead against us. Recognition of israel led by secretary of state. George marshall no foreign policy establishment viewed. Israel is getting in the way of trying to shore up arab support for america's position in the cold war which was deemed critical given the importance of the european recovery and making sure that arab oil slow to europe.

I'm turning to you to set the table for us please. In two thousand fifteen after a long process. Ajc ultimately decided to come out against the joint comprehensive plan of action iran deal or the jcp la in two thousand eighteen when president trump pulled the us out of the nuclear deal. We expressed our disappointment there as well. Can you start off by pulling back. The curtain a bit on a what went into our initial two thousand fifteen opposition and be. Why we didn't believe withdrawing from the deal was the right move. Either i keep your question Very much looking forward to our conversation today. We were very concerned about the two thousand fifteen joint comprehensive plan of action for a number of reasons. Spur session say we. We spent some time examining by closely with then secretary of state. John kerry with the tooth negotiator. That's when sherman whom came to jaycees officers in new york.

Our feeling was that the deal fell short of what had been expected what had been promised by the administration it did not cover a range of other threats to your on those.

Netanyahu's war on Hamas [TEST]
"Hello and welcome to the may twenty twenty one podcast from the moment diplomatic. My name's joel. Miller and my guest. This month is shall end. Download a jerusalem based journalist. Who for five decades has been covering israel on the wider middle east. Charles's many publications include a biography of Jamea and most recently a book reflecting on his years as jerusalem correspondent and this month's edition of the paper he's written about the rise and rise of the israeli right. He argues that. The israeli left has consistently failed to understand the uncompromising nature of netanyahu's project despite growing evidence when i called charles in jerusalem a few days after a ceasefire between israel and hamas was announced. I began by asking him what had struck him passionately in the past two weeks. To tell you the truth sweat Rarely surprised me was getting phone. Calls from people in france including jewelries. Think what happened. Everything was quiet for years now. Suddenly everything blows up lays now a new war and what happened with palestinian. Ever seen what quiet. Nothing quite. The fire was ready to burn all the elements where here to have an explosion of violence. No basic problem was his. Netanyahu will for ten years had as his policies to make military agreement cease-fires under the conditions that he would let Qatar bring shoot cases of cash. Do gaza do finances hamas and on the other side in the west bank. No political agreement. Everything is stuck and Settlements are growing within sixty percent of the west bank so everything was just growing growing growing until it grew up so in a sense. You're saying it wasn't a surprise. Did it feel like a repetition or does it feel different this time. Listen i was expecting at some point in time this would happen. I was surprised with the rapidity with which It it became a full scale war between the gaza and israel. This when we're very fast. So this should worry. I believe the policy makers in israel ended order abroad. It dallas sense of deja. Netanyahu has been prime minister since two thousand nine and so i know you've studied the israeli right as part of part of your long career as a journalist. Is it possible to say what netanyahu's endgame is is that clear. Yes preventing the creation of a palestinian State Wrong side israel and to stay in power so vilo survival political survival netanyahu and his old firmly believe the only he has the ability to protect and save the jewish people in israel and abroad so he staying power is of the utmost importance. This is why also he believes and these fighting role judiciary processes that brings him to court for corruption. And so. how do you read. Netanyahu's personal position. Today after the last the events of the last ten days given what you've said about the legal charges that he's facing and the fact that he hasn't been able to form a government for the fourth time. First of all the round of violence between israel and hamas for the cinci came back to power in two thousand nine. Netanyahu has very coaches now to get into full-scale war nut with his better in journals. Not with us is about self Of violence in for example. The two thousand fourteen. This happened without the netanyahu.

And then secondly. I think that emphasis not only on reconstruction in gaza which is something that the biden administration is promoting including on secretary of state. Lincoln's visit to israel and palestine yesterday but also on the wider issues the issues of jerusalem. The issues of what the democrats these crafts would call an israeli occupation of the palestinian west bank and some time of true to negotiations for a palestinian state after those of effectively stalled since two thousand nine.

"Hinson nance meant that he might declare that the united states recognised west jerusalem as the capital of israel he didn't do that though i will note that i believe the czech government followed president trump's lead uh but it said specifically bad it recognized west jerusalem as the capital of israel and my understanding is the belief being that the status of the rest of jerusalem should be settled through negotiations why do you think it is the president didn't go down that road i think the president of was trying to avoid that kind of controversy and it really is very controversial wessel yuksel that he got a controversy by declaring jerusalem is the capital earth i don't want to understate that no it's true obviously but but um you know prior to nineteen sixty seven to the 67 war on israel controlled what we're calling west jerusalem that is not the old city not the east reports of the city west jerusalem and that was where israel's government was the president the prime minister the supreme court the knesset israel's parliament the national museums we're all in the western part of jerusalem but even though israel's government was there an american president since secretaries of state visited their we were unwilling to say it with israel's capital why didn't the president say west jerusalem is israel's capital because there's a huge fight over what about east jerusalem what about the old city is it going to be the capital of palestine is the city ever going to be divided the prisoner tried to avoid those fight by simply saying look the government of israel's in jerusalem that's where our ambassador goes is he israeli official that's where we visit so i'm just gonna say that jerusalem undefined borders undefined is the capital of israel because it's a reality because that's where israel's government is and try to avoid making an american declaration about those other even more contentious issues what about the old city what about east jerusalem what about ever dividing the city what about drew some be in the cap.

"Well both israel and palestinians of the palestinians have claims on jerusalem of at least parts of it in the case of the israelis for sure you know they claim a the whole city undivided and eternal as their capital and for decades of the us and other countries have not taken a position on this they've said that the status of jerusalem should be one of those things as negotiated as part of a peace deal one of those final big sensitive things and so they have tried not to formally side with one group or the other on the status of this very holy city and so for trump to do this and say you know what we believe that jerusalem is the capital of israel it really sends a message to a lot of palestinians at least that's the way they're taking it and and many others in the arab world that he's basically citing with the israelis over them and it's something that so um have shocking to a lot of people but frankly after the last year or so of this presidency in many ways it shouldn't be shocking because trump has shown that he is willing to buck the international consensus on any number of issues uram it's like every piece of negotiations over a twostate solution every piece of it is fraught i can't think of a piece of negotiation that has more fraught then jerusalem in who will get what territory and notably he didn't mention in his speech that the palestinians want to have their capital in east jerusalem that was just left out right and you could take that in a positive way like you could say we'll because he didn't say anything he might be open to it and he didn't use the word undivided jerusalem being the capital of israel so that sort of left the opening that may be in the long run he might be willing to settle for something that does divide the city and innocent so what he didn't say and to some extent was.

"I think that's eighty that really is the profound point that uh that president trump would have done a good job by elaborating on and then i think your point is correct he touched on the point but he didn't really elaborate on it i think his statement was basically very good but it would have been better had he spent a little more time on the point that you just made which is the jerusalem issue is highly significant because the essence of the arab objection to israel throughout israel's entire existence and even to the zionist movement before israel came into existence the essence of their objection is that the jewish people have no rights at all in the land of israel in palestine and that the jews are not a nation that they do not have the historical can connection to the land that basically everybody who knows history knows that in fact they do and this denial of any jewish connection to the land in any jewish national writes in the land is really what the arabisraeli conflict has been about for over a hundred years and so the point that says david that the jews have no claim to jerusalem as their capital goes to the heart of this kind of philosophical ideological religious and nationalistic objection that the arabs have to the existence of the state of israel and so i think getting beyond that issue as the united states has now done really does contribute to peace because one of the most important messages the united states can deliver is that we don't consider those fundamental objections to israel's existence to be legitimate and we don't have to respect them and it doesn't make any sense to deny the reality of the jewish connection to jerusalem or jerusalem's role as israel's capital you i think a lot of listeners are around the world who are hearing this podcast are asking why now and why it's important to do this now while the at the media.

"And has not promoted peace between the israelis and the palestinians so i think a change was in order well and president trump made that point yesterday where he said it's folly to try and i'm paraphrasing here the same failed policies and expect a different result doug i also thought the the way that the president handled that question of distinguishing between west jerusalem where these which is the seat of the israeli government in east jerusalem which as you say has been administered by israel since that nineteen 67 war with jordan it that was neatly fudged because the president didn't distinguish between the two parts of the city and reiterated that he's not making a judgment on who should be in control of what parts or of whether or not in the future there might be a palestinian capital in some part of jerusalem he kind of said hands off in in essential lee effectively recognized the government which is already in in west jerusalem but he didn't didn't make that distinction explicitly that struck me as quite important i agree he his statement was a remarkably careful and nuanced from the one of the things that some people thought he was going to stumble over was trying to deal with the distinction between east and west roussel and had he tried god it would have suggested that us policy favoured dividing the city and as anybody knows who's been to jerusalem it it is the in the jewish and arab areas are are connected and interconnected in ways that would make a physical division of the city extremely difficult.

"For his courageous unjust decision to recognize jerusalem as the capital of israel and to prepare for the opening of the us embassy here this decision reflects the president's commitment to an ancient but enduring truth to fulfilling his promises and to advancing peace the president's decision is an important step towards peace for there is no peace that doesn't include jerusalem as the capital of the state of israel now may least edited jeremy barron gave me his assessment i listen to all i watched what he said when he was making his announcement in one thing that occurred to me once he'd made it talked about israel's rights talked about recognizing reality then he got onto his his passage about the imports of peace i think that he could have made that much more convincing if he'd said israel has a right to capital in jerusalem but so do the so to the palestinians but you can say that or any thing like kitty basically they offered them nothing so palestinians i think in the main and their allies and friends will be saying that just empty words and actually what it is is a ringing backing a ringing vote of confidence in israel on what it's doing in jerusalem yes he said it was long overdue it was the right thing to do the recognition of realities it possible to see that as you suggested there is anything other than favoring the israelis now it's a it's a huge pat on the back for the israelis more than a pat on the back it sir you know the the activities of the israelis in jerusalem are controversial uh particularly i'm talking about on the occupied side of jerusalem which they don't accept is occupied for example in the district to sell one which the israeli settlers who who lived there cool the city of david there are a lot of lebanon cuello demolitions of palestinian houses and people are being forced palestinians have been.

"Therefore i have determined that it is time to officially recognize jerusalem as the capital of israel while previous presidents have made this a major campaign promise they failed to deliver today i am delivering i've judge this course of action to be in the best interests of the united states of america and the pursuit of peace between israel and the palestinians this is a longoverdue step to advance the peace process and to work towards a lasting agreement israel is a sovereign nation with the right like every other sovereign nation to determine its own capital acknowledging this is a fact is a necessary condition for achieving peace the announcement fulfills a campaign promise donald trump made to his supporters but a reverse his decades of us foreign policy the reaction from the palestinians wall smelt surprisingly condemnation of the move and ashwari is a senior member of the plo i think this is this asked us it's not wellthoughtout it does and dialect a contradiction of the most basic requirements of peace at violates international law it shows total bias in favor of is then it shows an accommodation of uh illegal annexation of jerusalem it shows an accommodation and support for occupation and forward force and military violence and at the same time it says we recognize the reality what is reality the law should be the basis of any of that gig nation the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu on the other hand showed his delight with mr trump's decision we're performed grateful for the president.
