unacceptable and dangerous that's the arab league's reaction to president donald trump's recognition of jerusalem as israel's capital on wednesday you know when i was asian called it illegal according to international law at an emergency meeting in the egyptian capital cairo reports at an emergency session of the arab league a show of unity and anger the twenty two nations that make up the organization gathered in cairo to forcefully reject u.s. president donald trump's recognition of jerusalem as israel's capital. this decision threatens jury sims legal status and affects all the arab muslims and christians and the islamic world all together we would like him to be frank and call things by their real name the decision taken by the american administration to recognize jerusalem as the capital of israel and to move the american embassy to jerusalem is unacceptable and very dangerous the arab league has long been involved in the palestinian struggle first by denouncing the creation of israel and through
its involvement in the one nine hundred forty eight arab israeli war. it later supported the creation of the first international body representing the palestinian people which led to the formation of the palestinian liberation organization or p.l.o. which was admitted as a member in one thousand nine hundred sixty four. three years later after the six day arab israeli war league issued the so-called khartoum resolution which set what became known as the three no no peace with israel no recognition of israel and no negotiations with it. but at the beirut summit in two thousand and two the league adopted the so-called arab peace initiative a saudi inspired peace plan to end the conflict a plan offered full normalization with israel in exchange israel was required to withdrawal from all occupied territories to recognize palestinian independence in
the west bank and gaza strip with east jerusalem as its capital as well as a just solution for palestinian refugees peace initiative was indorsed again at the riyadh summit five years later but never resulted in any kind of agreement now with president trump's decision to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital an arab led solution to the israeli palestinian conflict seems further away than ever. but whatever the case arab league leaders announce they reached an agreement on how to respond to the move. first thing this decision is rejected and the arab league with all its consequences secondly they have agreed to form a committee for peace making which will deal with the international community this is an order to achieve progress in respect of the palestinian issue jordan will be head of the committee which will be formed next month despite the anger the arab league put forward no measures against the united states although it said it would consider its options well continuing efforts to find
a lasting solution to the palestinian struggle a struggle that shows no signs of easing into al-jazeera. meanwhile dozens of palestinians have been injured and arrested during a fourth day of protests against the u.s. decision in occupied east jerusalem israeli forces fired stun grenades and tear gas as they charged to a crowd of peaceful demonstrators at one of the city's busiest shopping streets alan fischer was there. i said i didn't mean it started as a small protest handful of people but as the walk towards all jerusalem dome one of the city's busy shopping streets there was blogged by police and soldiers told they had no permit to march that they were blocking the road they were forcibly pushed back to it was in a city where anger has been close to the surface since donald trump's controversial decision it sparked a series of running confrontations. police sent in
horses to break up the crowds creating widespread anger and panic this has been a pattern throughout the afternoon as crowds gather by the side of the street the horses have been sent ten some pace to try and break those crowds up the writers have even been using their weapons it really is quite frightening for the people who are standing here watching these horses racing towards them. i don't want to see that we're getting here because what i did then. and there were we never give up our country would say that was the work ethic that i was given at the end in tears and it was. just you know seeing. it. was. the security forces you saw in grenades and there were reports of injuries from rubber coated steel bullets if anyone produced a palestinian flag it was taken from them forcibly sometimes violently the flags
destroyed in front of their face was the. then the woman we spoke to earlier was there. that police couldn't tell is why. this is what's happening in. there and that it could be. true that. throughout the afternoon the security forces backed off the crowds gathered the police moved up and the whole cycle began again. the security forces tried to grab people they thought were throwing stones at them identified by police photographers who'd been in the crowd by nightfall the situation had stabilized but the under come to attention and the anger was still there but she was no sign of going away alan fischer in occupied east jerusalem elsewhere funerals have been held in gaza for two of the four people killed during the unrest two hamas fighters were killed
by israeli airstrikes israel's military says it was targeting hamas weapon sites and. the rockets fired into israel late on friday of these twenty five palestinians including six children were wounded in the evening bombing according to officials separately two palestinians were killed while protesting on friday. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu is accusing european officials of hypocrisy for criticizing donald trump's decision it comes as the french president emmanuel macro is set to host netanyahu on sunday but his visit has triggered angry protests in paris a neutral observer but reasonably certain i ascribe great importance to europe while i respect europe i am not prepared to accept a double standard from it i hear voices from their condemning president trumps historic statement but i've not heard condemnations of the rockets fired israel or the terrible incitement against it i'm not prepared to accept this hypocrisy and as usual at this important forum i will present israel's truth without fear and with head held high. in other news iraq's prime minister has declared its war against
eisel is over he says troops are in control of the area around the iraq syrian border but the driving i still fighters out iceland vanstone iraq three years ago and quickly captured around a third of the country including important cities like fallujah and mosul you know when it comes two days after russia said it had defeated eisel in syria. and. having not honorable iraqis your land has been completely realty races your cities and villages have been returned to the nation the dream of liberation has become a reality we achieved victory in difficult circumstances who have gone so steadfastness of our people and the bravery of our heroic forces we prevailed firefighters in california say they've made some progress in the battle to contain multiple large wildfires raging across the southern part of the state at least one person has died and two hundred thousand more than forced to leave their homes the fire in one of the worst hit areas in ventura county is now partially contained but forecasters
are warning that high winds expected this weekend could make things worse allan shuffle has more from los angeles. well the fire fight continues on many fronts here in southern california and everything is going to depend on the weather firefighters and residents tired of all the flames in so many areas got a bit of a break over the last twenty four hours the winds calm down a little bit firefighters were able to divert resources from structure protection for protecting neighborhoods and actually attack the fire and they have made progress on many fronts on these many fires however what happens in the next forty eight hours is going to determine fire behavior the national weather service does have a red flag warning up there saying that there is a potential at least for very high winds through the end of this weekend winds that could gust to eighty or ninety kilometers kilometers per hour those are the common
santa ana winds that happen every winter here but when they happen and there's some kind of fire ignition those fires can explode and that's what we've seen over the past week or so for now we're in a bit of a holding pattern we'll all wait and see what the weather brings over the next forty eight hours now doctors in south korea are protecting against president moon jane's plan to expand national health insurance coverage the policy would see health insurance cover seventy percent of the cost of treatment and include most medical procedures and test by the it twenty twenty two but doctors say the scheme would force them to provide cheap it can lead to a full in the quality of treatment let's get more now from kathy novak she joins us live from seoul kathy so what more can you tell us about the issues here and what are the doctors really angry about. well it's known here as moon care it's a debate that happens in a number of countries daren the question how much should the government really pay for health care when president moon was elected this year he campaigned to widen
the amount the government actually covers that would allow the government health care to cover more treatments and more procedures for example m.r.i. scans were not previously covered in care as it's known would see that kind of procedure covered under the government insurance scheme but the doctors here as you say are quite angry they say that first of all they weren't consulted when this scheme was developed to do to widen the coverage under national health insurance and they also say as you alluded to there that there are questions around whether or not the government can actually afford to do this and they're saying that when this actually gets put into place people will choose to have more expensive procedures might choose to go to a more general hospitals and ultimately the quality of health care will suffer so the crowd here is actually quite big there's quite a wide support among doctors themselves for this protest against the government's game but across the broader population one of the questions that is being asked is
it's part of the reason that the doctors coming out their old self interest people are asking whether what they're really concerned about is their own pay one truly implemented. thank you. well so also to come here not just here including. i'm tiny a page reporting from south africa on how several big international brands have been linked to a corruption scandal. and they call him a japanese babe ruth he's just been sold an american baseball team for twenty million dollars more in that state. how the weather's looking pretty quiet across the middle east over the next couple of days little bit of cloud over towards afghanistan possibility of wanted to fly

welcome back a quick reminder of the top stories here on al-jazeera there's been a fourth day of fall of protests across the occupied palestinian territories demonstrators angry over the u.s. decision to declare jerusalem the capital of israel to a force of five tear gas and stun grenades protesters. meanwhile arab league foreign ministers meeting in cairo say the u.s. decision is unacceptable and dangerous and they said it was a violation of international law but stopped short of putting forward any measures against the united states. and iraq's prime minister has declared its war against eisel is over he says troops from the remaining fighters from the iraqis syrian border are now in control of the area i still advanced across iraq three years ago around the third of the country.
now on sunday the nobel peace prize will be handed to the international campaign to abolish nuclear weapons at a ceremony in the campaign as fought for a global treaty banning nuclear weapons which now has more than fifty countries signatories diplomatic editor james bays reports. in the grounds of united nations headquarters a statue showing a georgian the dragon the vanquished beast made out of decommissioned nuclear missiles the u.n. was founded in the same moment in history as the only actual use of nuclear weapons in fact president harry truman signed the charter of the organization on the same day that his forces dropped a bomb on the japanese city of naggers sarky just five months later the first meeting of the un general assembly and its first resolution was about what it somewhat euphemistically called the problems raised by the discovery of atomic energy that is adapted unanimously after seventy. seven
more than seven decades later a new campaign to ban nuclear weapons was backed by a grassroots network of activists coordinated by icann the international committee for the abolition of nuclear weapons they made a significant breakthrough a new treaty in september when the treaty was open for signature on the very first day fifty nations signed it in this chamber now that number fifty is crucial if fifty countries go on to take the next step and formally ratify it in many countries that involves a parliamentary vote then this will become international law the five most powerful nations at the u.n. do not support the treaty the permanent members of the security council see their right to veto and their nuclear weapons as key instruments of strategy there have been efforts at nuclear disarmament in the past in the u.n.
lobby a picture of a meeting between us president john f. kennedy in one nine hundred sixty one with the russian foreign minister under a grim eco the hope in the following year died when the world came close to nuclear war during the cuban missile crisis some see parallels to recent events. i've been very much concerned because there is some talk about let's do something that's cool down the temperature and let's get into dialogue but the dialogue has essentially stopped already for a long time there were various efforts over the years and over the decades but in essence there hasn't been any dialogue for quite a number of years and in the meantime north korea has stepped up their efforts to acquire nuclear weapons it's not just the prospect of war in north korea and the u.s. threatening to pull out of the iran nuclear deal there's also the prospect of a new arms race president trump has made it clear he wants to modernize his nuclear arsenal james pays al-jazeera at the united nations. donald trump's

to sure people have access to affordable health care and he seek it to undermine it at every turn. trump was slow to condemn racist groups that protested in charlottesville virginia earlier this year you had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent but he has released he condemned n.f.l. players for taking a need to bring national anthem in protest against police brutality and injustice against mostly young black men but there is another side of the story many of the people who are here on the first day of the museum's opening said they very much support the president's visit he should be here to represent who we are not a segment not a political view but the people of united states best me and you're happy i'm happy is here. to at the newseum and then gave a speech with a presidential tone that stayed on script we want our country to be
a place where every child. from every background can grow up free from fear innocent of hatred and surrounded by love opportunity and hope today we pay tribute to our heroes of the past his words were appreciated by many that came here as words were powerful and at the end of the day it's about the two museums that are here mississippi has a dark history when it comes to civil rights in the last century it was one of the last states to fully integrate black americans to have equal rights medgar evers' a famous civil rights leader from the state was murdered here in one thousand nine hundred sixty three this entire history now on full display at the new museum everyone agrees the struggle for equal rights is a story that needs to be told that disagreement on if the current president is the right person to tell it. al-jazeera jackson mississippi
