9:17 pm
by holding this vote to try to compel them to bring this resolution which would an x. either most or all of the west bank depending on which member of the knesset you speak with. a law to the knesset for them to vote on but this is very controversial for several reasons obviously right now israel is much condemned by the international community especially in light of president donald trump's decision to name drew slim as the capital of israel a fact of the matter is a lot of the analysts that we're speaking with believe that this is essentially political theater this is a way for the likud central committee to play to their base to try to really rally the faithful at a time where there have been a lot of questions about the prime minister about where the party is headed at such a crucial time here in israel some people saying this is simply just cynical political calculus now one israeli pollster mitchell barracora spoke with earlier in the day told me his thoughts about most of this here's more of what he had to
9:18 pm
say. i think if the likud central committee passes vote i think the biggest thing that will happen it will take a lot of newspaper space will be a lot of printing done of this because it really is not binding it's not even relevant it's just you know the prime minister's right of center party just trying to make a statement a policy statement which really is meaningless even if you read the statement it's theirs they will go into depth and it's just kind of getting ready the drumbeat of election is happening in israel we don't know when it's kind of you know this government is not the most stable and people are wondering how long is it that you know that to be around given all that's going on with the investigations so they're just trying to shore up their their popularity on the right arab members of the knesset of the parliament here have started reacting to this meeting some of them saying that if this resolution is passed if the prime minister then decides to try to take it to pass it is a law in the knesset that that would really signal into trying to find
9:19 pm
a two state solution to the to the crisis here that it would really be the end of the peace process as we know it really what's key right now is what will be when netanyahu do if this as expected does go ahead and pass is this going to be a binding resolution many here say that it is or is it not a binding resolution as we've heard from many analysts today and what will happen next thank you very much momentum during that bringing us the latest on that resolution that customs officials in south korea have seen stay panama flying vessel suspected of transferring oil to north korea it's a second ship pal for allegedly violating international sanctions on friday south korea says it had impounded a hong kong flagged vessel in november at the u.n. security council impose new sanctions last month on pyongyang limiting its access to petroleum products was in response to north korea's nuclear tests.

9:35 pm
observers not to be harmed and what happened to my father kind of kicked off a new era where journalists became targets. for kidnappings you know just it became a whole different ball game and that is kind of where we are now and as we saw with the isis kidnappings and what happened to james foley and the other hostages. things are things are different than they used to be. and algis there is demanding the release of its journalists or to say it's been more than a year since he was arrested and jailed in egypt for saying is accused of broadcasting false news to spread chaos which a strong it in his repeatedly complained of mistreatment and. tens of thousands of people have been demonstrating in togo demanding an end to the fifteen year rule of president for now same day as the latest in the street protests organized by opposition groups in the west african nation that have been

taking place since august protests as one new rules limiting presidents to two terms in office passing by and his father before him. since one thousand nine hundred sixty seven. we've been claiming our bikes for four months now they don't even see is it looks like the cover my dream doesn't even consider us with the market is necessary that at least the state or the government knows that we are telling it we want to see definite. change the u.s. city of rock forward in the midwestern state of illinois is the nation's most violent small city now the police force is taking a unique approach to bringing down its crime right john hendren went to meet some of the offices moving into iraq for its most violent neighborhoods. this is probably the most dangerous city you've never heard of according to the f.b.i. uniform crime report last year rockford illinois is the most violent u.s. city with a population under two hundred thousand block for block more perilous than los
9:37 pm
angeles or chicago so this midwestern town has launched the most extreme form of community policing in america everybody grab onto ok. rockford has officers like eric thurman moving into high crime neighborhoods. are to do that to those who the boys also don't like advance forging ties with a community that is often viewed them with suspicion. normally if there's a shooting in the neighborhood everyone's out. but we go talk to people interview them and what happened no one saw anything or no one heard nothing but you know rather me being here they know they're comfortable talking with me you know there's a shooting right here everyone will come to my door they would come talk to me and they would tell me exactly what they saw thurmond and patrice turner or rockford first to resident officers. is more about building relationships with the people that you police it's more about building bridges instead of busting heads the
9:38 pm
city's police chief expects to add more resident officers in the next year with standard policing an officer gets the call gets in his car and drives through the scene but a resident officer like officer thurman really crosses the street and knocks on the door of a neighbor who probably already know. the program is less than a year old but is part of a broader strategy it appears to be working in two thousand and fifteen rockford police solve two of nineteen murders in two thousand and seventeen so far they've solved nine of eighteen and could soon see charges in three more cases we need to have alternate strategies not only. nationwide and this is working. and change people's lives should. critics say a troubled history between police and african-americans will make that difficult i think. it's basically going to end up with
9:39 pm
a police presence in communities that i don't think are ready to accept the police as positive forces but in a turbulent city with a long history of ill will toward police. the filmon says it's a beginning john hendren al-jazeera rockford illinois. back in july french president emanuel last call said he wanted to see no more homeless people sleeping rough by the end of the year but that hasn't happened in the capital alone that's around thirty thousand homeless people both refugees and locals and according to charities the problem is getting worse not in barber reports from paris he's been homeless for five years and he's still only twenty three tony doesn't want to show his face but he's happy to explain why despite the dangers he generally spends his days begging and his nights sleeping on the streets and not in a state funded emergency shelter. recently someone stole my tent then when i was
9:40 pm
sleeping on a mattress someone kicked me in the head so they could grab the bag my head was resting on so life on the street is very hard but in those emergency shelters you also get attacked you get lots of drunkards and even if you don't look for trouble you find it it's not safe there. the debate about how to deal with one hundred forty thousand people officially homeless in france was reopened this summer when the newly elected president made a surprise announcement. to delusion to the first battle is to have everyone in a dignified manner. by the end of the year i want no more women and men in the street in the woods last only. michael suggested he could achieve this by providing more emergency shelters and better follow up by social services but groups who work with homeless people say they've not seen evidence of either
9:41 pm
they say there are now more rough sleepers than ever partly due to an increase in the number of refugees camped out in places like the can now some things like this have become commonplace across the french capital and there are less than one hundred thirteen thousand people sleeping rough in the city and its surroundings and although it's hard to believe homeless charities say things are actually getting worse critics argue that the government could create thousands of extra beds for homeless people right away using existing facilities here. where there's an open door back to the reader it's possible to a hospital wings that are currently empty they've got heating and sanitation they can be converted quite easily they're also not army barracks you could yes ok then there's a question of finance the organizations that look after the homeless and run the premises. whatever the reality it's clear winter brings extra hardships for rough sleepers according to one charity four hundred homeless people have died this year
9:42 pm
alone and the average age was forty eight for alleviate who became homeless this year after a family crisis those figures come as no surprise. there are lots of people who are ill and who don't get to hospital he says either because they can't afford to or because they don't want to be treated. the new year should mean a new start for tony he's been offered work fundraising for a charity and he hopes to rent a flat with a friend but it's not easy. i have already saved up eighteen hundred euros was my friend will have to pay two thousand two hundred euros so that the end of except us was out to get rent without proof off income looking back the president's short term target for homelessness seemed destined to fail but campaigners hope he will invest in long term solutions that can get people off the streets for good. paris you're watching the al-jazeera news hour coming up in sports. gets a new record in english premier league football sound i will be here in i'm.
