square despite the marching bands and music a truly festive atmosphere was hard to achieve. the arrival of the patriarch wasn't just protested local officials also gave him a cold shoulder when they refused to welcome him to the square another issue overshadowing celebrations this year is the decision by u.s. president donald trump to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital in the month since that decision was made there been numerous protests in the occupied west bank and it's really contributed to a growing sense of hopelessness amongst palestinian christians forty year old george was sad says he's never witnessed such a song or mood at christmas is the level of the headline if things remain as is opie pool seek to leave who'd stay here if you see it being so and the city is sad have you ever see. in bethlehem like this thousands would usually be here christmas muslims would show up even before christians palestinian christians in the west bank are worried their relatively small number will continue to do windell and

6:05 am
a palestinian state with jerusalem as its capital according to the june the fourth nine hundred sixty seven borders the new york times is reporting that egypt has media there to play down opposition to president trumps jerusalem decision and leaked phone recordings a senior intelligence officer reportedly told leading t.v. talk show hosts to influence their view is to back the decision despite egypt's public condemnation the newspaper quoted a captain asking hosts how it's diverse and different from ramallah which is the current face of the palestinian authority in the occupied west bank captain alcorn he was quoted telling the talk show hosts and the father would not serve egypt's national security interests and could revive her well as director of research and analysis of the absent of washington d.c. and he says this seems to be a disconnect between the palestinian cause and what arab leaders want. generally speaking that abode has been quiet and actually it has been quiet but
6:06 am
a long long time everybody knew and everybody knows what the israeli government has been up to for four decades right now so you know that this is not the be a new thing donald trump just simply made sure that this decision was taken but he must have read the thought that it's a good step and arab regimes would probably support that it's a problem and that got us in it would have to have to do something about it will always be a problem the arab street is not necessarily with the arab rulers on this issue that absolute still believe that the palestine issue is the central issue and jerusalem is the most sensitive of that sense of issue you know the muslim world definitely i think the same way it's a problem that is a basically a bifurcated position you know between the peoples of the arab and muslim worlds and the leaders of the arab and muslim world and. the palestinian equation itself
6:07 am

6:08 am
a bit and it was one of those things that's why sloppy steve is now looking for a job as republican leaders met the president to discuss their legislative agenda for twenty eight eighteen trump began his day with a barrage of morning tweets he wrote throughout my life my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being like really smart and he said that winning the presidency qualifies him as not smart but genius in a very stable genius at that in defending himself against the allegations in this book president trump was knocked off message in it steve bannon says he's lost his stuff media mogul rupert murdoch calls him an idiot and staffers describe him as a semi literate fool but what the republicans who met with trump on saturday wanted to talk about with their plans for twenty eight teen and immigration reform candidate donald trump's signature campaign promise and we are building a wall on the southern border we need safety we need cameras and i will have
6:09 am
mexico pay for that wall it turns out he might have that half right the administration's plan for an immigration overhaul would spend eighteen billion dollars over ten years and add five hundred five kilometers to an existing border with mexico and the u.s. congress would pay for the bill is expected to restore some protection for the so-called dreamers children of undocumented immigrants who were brought to the u.s. by their parents trump recently rescinded an obama era rule protecting them but democrats fear the new immigration funds could be used to deport dreamers who registered for the program or their families they don't have resources that the eight hundred thousand dreamers it's not at all clear that the information that the dreamers volunteered to the government to establish their right to be legally work at work and otherwise could be used to identify and detain and then deport the dreamers but in. gratian was not the top question trump addressed on saturday john hendren. washington. proclaiming his genius the us president said he's open

course again safety and security are part of all of the olympic games and so it's a part of our preparations that we do but every other olympic committee has also had the same measures in place so we're working to ensure that everything is in place in time for the games. but an even more unpredictable factor is mother nature for costa temperatures on the day of the opening ceremony could make it one of the coldest in thirty years and the stadium has no roof a deliberate design to save time and money officials say to counter the cold they're installing when she and will give out hot packs and blankets to spectators . this is a hot tub a pocket sized portable heater to give it a good shake the chemicals inside react this packing generates heat the last for at least ten hours put in your pocket you hands out warm and toasty. for those willing to brave the cold it's now easy to get to the venue with

6:22 am
subsidiary protection and these claims for asylum are rejected should not we are objecting to the right of so-called subsidiary. accept that if you choose to bring their family to germany because to be honest this would. exhaust our capacities what makes this view more interesting is that stefan meyer speaks on this issue not just for his party but also for angle americans christian democrats but this particular point of view is not shared by the social democrats and with coalition talks between the three parties now intensifying in the new year the question is might this issue be a sticking point because the social democrats believe that where possible families who qualified to be reunited should be allowed to do so the political fight in germany is now about how to bring the government together from parties with such

differing views from mahmoud and michael matalin it's how to bring their family back together dominant game al-jazeera in bavaria. germany and turkey have agreed to work on improving relations their foreign ministers acknowledge that differences remain that said they believe they can tackle the issues through dialogue and cooperation relations were strained by the arrests of german citizens in turkey and burns criticism of the turkish crackdown following the two thousand and sixteen failed coup. went to visit of the childish mission i own for i believe we have the response of. to find a way to get along today our historical legacy and the wishes of our citizens we must not forget that we've both made it our business to do everything we can to overcome the difficulties there have been and german tarkus relations and to find more common ground in the future by remembering everything that binds us together.
