accusation and evidence is part of genocide the listening post provides a critical counterpoint challenging mainstream media narratives of this time on al-jazeera. al-jazeera. where ever you. hello again on. how these are the top stories the u.s. is accusing russia of blocking a u.n. security council statement which would have condemned the use of chemical weapons by the syrian government the us ambassador nikki haley says there's obvious evidence of recent chlorine gas attacks by the assad regime i was there as
diplomatic editor jane space reports from the u.n. . the attack was brazen and blatant at least eleven people were treated after an airstrike in syria chlorine was probably used this the latest in a series of what seem to have been chemical attacks it led to a war of words in the security council a meeting you were not supposed to see this regular monthly session on the issue is usually held behind closed doors but an angry us ambassador demanded it was made public nikki haley condemned russia for not even agreeing to a press statement on the latest attacks if we can't even take the first step of a stab us in accountability for chemical weapons use we have to seriously ask ourselves why we are here russia which is used its veto to avoid action on this issue was strongly criticized by ambassador hayley and by her french and british
colleagues it's some bastard of vaseline a benzema hit back the rigid annoying statements by these representatives as always contain very little truth mixed with mountains of lies and will do the. where is the presumption of innocence prior to any investigation you are accusing the so-called regime quote unquote. with that point here appeared to make nor clear facts in twenty fifteen the un security council unanimously decided to create the joint investigative mechanism or jim to work out exactly who was guilty of chemical weapons use it concluded that in four cases the assad government was responsible for using chemical weapons soon afterwards russia used its veto to stop the renewal of the gym leaving the security council powerless does it just not highlight the importance of the security council i think you are very right with the fact that
these the use of chemical weapons continues to meet again in syria is a challenge to the very authority of the security council. the security council continues to talk but on this issue is unable to act the continuing sporadic chemical attacks underlining its weakness and undermining the international consensus against the use of some of the world's most hideous weapons james pays out of the united nations meanwhile the syrian government has deployed new anti-aircraft missiles to the front lines in aleppo and did live where it's battling rebel fighters the area seen an escalation in fighting and aerial bombardment in recent weeks with dozens of civilians killed the new weapons follow the downing of a russian fighter jet by rebels on saturday. israel says its security forces have

i was born here in the united states my dad is from palestine he came over in one nine hundred fifty and lived here and started his family here and we've lived always in southern california i'm a professional violinist and i. i do music for movies soundtracks and commercials and record projects i received an e-mail from an orchestra that i work with here in los angeles they had forwarded to me a correspondence they received from tim party from the national orchestra on the
edward sade institute looking for me i'm not sure how he'd discovered me or knew that i was living here but they forward me the e-mail and it was kind of quizzical that somebody was looking for me from that part of the world professionally not it wasn't a family member or something like that so it was quite interesting and intriguing when i got this e-mail and when i learned what it was all about i was very excited to hear that they were trying to bring people from around the world back to to create music. mostly orchestras that i worked with in my career have been in los angeles and it's
about your ability and how you perform on your instrument doing a project like this was it was more than just being able to play your instrument it was communing with with people and in a way almost family. playing music with them and many of them from all over the world from europe and south america and then in the states and and being able to put it assemble a group together like that was it was really something it felt it felt like something very important was happening and especially through music music is such a great language the the in the. the . old. the the.
old the even. the the with the you. the news. and it's me the mobile was in the woods and i'm in the lead that would have done in the claim it suddenly host the show sanity but ansa could well have but it can also win when. t. for the holiday season. are due but orchestra. fuzzily had minister m.s.n. and extra shuffling and know how bullied the how bush a.p. the will to whom i will house will sit by a mile marker who has them but gets it in mostly to hell i'm an ark but most likely

my name is mary m. to maddy my father is palestinian and my mother is japanese. i grew up in japan and i studied in the united states and i live in paris now i certainly listen to all different kinds of music i like rock and. and popular music as well but very since very very early age i must say since around three or four i tend to fight very specifically was classical music and as soon as i started actually singing classical music myself i immediately knew that this was the way that i can express myself the most and the most fully always very important for me to sing in palestine and also with palestinians abroad as well too because i love i love palestine i love palestinians and i love being in this in
this culture and a part of it my background as a palestinian and as a japanese those are the strongest of course that's part of my head. was. you know. i feel that my background has helped me immensely. is a big part of who i am so i grew up listening to a lot of classical music certainly song by my aunt danielle but also my father listened to a lot of bach and mozart at home all the arts played a huge part of my daily life since i was born i would just like to say that all was
so thrilled to be here so thrilled to the always welcomed back they say you know they say welcome home to me when i'm here even if it's been even if it's been a few years that i haven't been back and even if i'm so ashamed that i don't speak arabic but they but my family and friends always say welcome home and that is how i feel so i really am grateful for that. i was recording this morning at capitol records for a show called the x. factor we do it usually on sundays every week it ranges from
a couple hours to several hours today was about a three hour session. and my uncle is joining us he has traveled from northern california city called palo alto. and he'll be arriving at los angeles international airport where we're on our way to go collect them i think are going to really. joy meeting him because he is from palestine born and raised in palestine speaks arabic unfortunately i speak no arabic so i know i'm really happy that i can bring my uncle and he can add some culture to our of our gathering here so for now i'll grab my uncle and head back to the house and then i will spend some time to go.
just here i was shouldn't come. off my language. as well as. the fact is they took their land and i remember it became. but nineteen forty four forty five forty six. it became impossible to go from one place to another without having an id and that's was restricting our freedom and it became ugly that we have to put up with a foreigner have telling us where to go when to go. and now when i see the
situation is happening in palestine that you have to secede your land and give it to these people because they tell you saw i'm sorry the military said we have to mow down your house we don't care where you go or we hope you die in the desert somewhere that is an affront to humanity these are some of the pictures of villa. and the tumbi a section of jerusalem where i was born. and this is a picture of the very last it was completed in one thousand nine hundred twenty six this is a picture that is now touted the net to show villa how rashid . was taken by the israeli government golda
meir lived in this house and i think begun was married in this house too and golda may deny it and her memoirs. and the arab ever lived in that house and she also marred the name of the village her rashid. so that's common for bernadotte would not notice that she is living in an i was house. in. the rhythm or a vital source of substance to the country's influence through this normal thing
going on who can lay claim that would be negligent isn't good given the resources we fumbled for it but with this comes a destabilizing rivalry the country suspicious of each of those intentions in the battle for control of the record transponding suit consultation was not up to me to do to come to the close on a normal fear struck a little bit of a does time on al-jazeera we know the culture we know the problems that affect this part of the world very very well and that is something that we're trying to take to the rest of the world we have gone to places and reported on a story that it might take an international network for months to be able to do it united nations peacekeepers after knowing anti-riot you know. you are challenging the forces were challenging companies who are going to places where nobody else is going. more than seven decades ago a country was split into really believe that. anything and now i.
believe they only took was a pan a map of the collapsing empire when the british had to draw a line they pulled its servants who had never been to india before al-jazeera examines the violence of india and pakistan and asks what the future holds for these e.p.l. neighbors partition borders of blood at this time. hello again i'm on this in doha these are the top stories here at al-jazeera global stock markets have suffered serious losses after the u.s. dow jones index crashed through the twenty five thousand mark wiping out all the gains it has made over the past month a possible interest rate rises being seen as the main cause for the drop the crisis
in the movies is deafening two supreme court judges and an opposition leader being arrested after president you mean declared a fifteen day state of emergency last week the court ordered the release of nine leading opposition figures israel says its security forces have killed a palestinian man who was the prime suspect in the death of a settler last month rabbi. was killed in a drive by shooting in their legal israeli outpost on january the ninth two other palestinians were killed in raids by israeli security forces across the occupied west bank in the search for the suspect he's been named a twenty one year old ahmed nasser. the u.s. has accused russia of blocking u.n. security council condemnation of the use of chemical weapons by the syrian government u.s. ambassador in the key haley says there is quite obvious evidence that president
assad's forces recently used chlorine gas in rebel held areas syria denies using chemical weapons. it's a true tragedy that russia has sent us back to square one in the effort to end chemical weapons use in syria but we will not cease in our efforts to know the truth of the assad regime and ensure that the truth is known and acted on by the international community meanwhile syria's government has deployed new anti-aircraft missiles to the front lines in aleppo and did live where it's battling against rebel fighters the areas seen an escalation in fighting and aerial bombardment in recent weeks with dozens of civilians killed the u.s. vice president mike pence hasn't ruled out the possibility of missing north korean officials during the winter olympics in south korea this depends will be leading the american delegation the p.r. games on his way to asia he told a u.s.
missile defense facility in alaska right up to date this is the latest head latest headlines al-jazeera world is next. when charlie found out about the palestine orchestra he was and through z s take because of his background to go palestine and share all his time with all these people that you know he loved that he loved being there and i hope you can continue .
there is something about music and it depending on the style that you're doing but for me when i when i'm playing and performing especially if you get taken into a world where you know you're you're thinking about your music only you know you're not thinking about what's happening back home and you're dealing with issues that are difficult at home or in your family or your friends or anything like that you're in you're in the moment of the music and it's kind of a respite from from the daily grind of life so i really look forward to the concerts specially because you get a you get a break from from reality really you're just in this world of music and it's refreshing to be doing that and not thinking about everything else that you're going to be thinking about once it's over.
so i'm just getting my things together for the trip and i'm packing what i think i might need over there the weather is probably going to might be a little chilly so i've got a couple things that i'd like to have with me along with my performing outfit and some gifts for some family members and things like that we're joining maybe fifty or sixty members of the orchestra that are coming many of them from all different parts of the world including europe and south and south america and is in the states like me and so i'm going to take these things with me and i'll grab my violin and i will head to the airport and begin the journey.
in the don't. know saws. and will soon come to an end and mostly off the good recess. chickenfoot of the book. but a common cold but the matecumbe chickens are. they dems love ross mann economic theory but how are the dems common cold can also model him about the freeholder no move but what if we are. about what values it could be the middle a millionaire model with a millionaire it was so weak walked or. don't
have been to hold. the tiny. serum to their theory. he had hammy him then you been back into an abyss my husband and me the math can have them and enough to share. by then command mariam. learn had that as a buffer to look into their can i have a lot of issues and i managed and i thought it does will be a feather to be
a dick beauty best than isabel national chemical or korean any because you are more t.m.i. or at home more him a kid in the corner cellar with a sort of a tom can measure the fullest in a year why he and butter out in the usual had to do your computer illinois in. the home to mom was that like a gift this is a sign from the homeless. i'm always looking for palestinian poetry to sing and this poem is
particularly special to my heart because first of all it's by a great week and second i really felt close to it because i feel also like i'm palestinian but like so many of us in the diaspora so many of us who had to leave. i speak also as somebody from a far away land. and somebody who who feels this great nostalgia whenever i return and also i feel that the poem is really speaking about the experience of somebody like my father who had to leave. as a child and. he feels he has been living in exile his whole life but every day dreaming of palestine every day has his heart in palestine so i feel that this
out. of a little thought. well as a fad orchestra has had a role. because if the how we talk about how we as voters that are invalid then you hear from us the in hock knows if i'm in academia. or we had his he normal he said this one phone call from a scene said when you know a bomb or in a bad thought because that or because if it only because i was there because hell you know and the mission had a clean bill of the bags of my old one but it had a will of his but his you know as if. he were to start
show hold of if you do nothing yeah me and i'll have it as a fit for fun. if you do a lot of b.s. any of us in our lives if they feel the most about not that i'm a lot of different older and have robbie and i need to look in a medically hone medically haven't had any check across what could an orchestra let me know how the. allies if you know your d.m. how the heck you muppet look we've got a little muscle to him as if i'm as if the coffee hung only. fuck off air that to be in. a coffin how you can as a key of us a lot about you how they should any of us and i me an island up the line an island for him all the best enemies eat i'm highlighting them for heavily in in. the. the look will be going to the cliff with bush on hold with going on. because on her
why it's a much deeper level you're. mixing with people from your background and getting to hear the language and have the food and see the sights and it really is such a different experience doing it for something like this than it was say a job back home it is a dream for me i have never had the opportunity to come to palestine and until tim . mohamed foggo contacted me i really didn't know when i would ever have that opportunity so it was really a great chance to come out and meet people of my heritage and play music with them and it's a it's a very nonpolitical situation so it's really nice because we're here just to spread the word of palestinian culture the good the good side of the culture.
so how might i tell addicts sit up and watch the toma any must sit in the list so you say a visual will assist it's unhappy it was them and he could be sued and. it's best to behave to have a bad enough to see what a woman can and not a day off from did a lot of in the law send a man couldn't you know what had little to how did you interest in a belief that it was a sin of the connection been no been a musician zoo surely to do to say. you know i'm to new down this might be at a food. but so many choose to join you wish he had the admin whom by then he had them he had some sistine alyson and are still out of style
a home full of steam and a bitch dam and busy china care. when i'm behind you but at the plaza in the summit behind it's. had the most and i'd have to look at mattel for missing vision who would buy them and shoot it deary and he said end of t.t. behavior has been no enough to get a few new will be hit boom of the dish and. busts but he couldn't actually.
thinking with the palestine national orchestra it's quite different because it brings together to. two of my passions my identity as a palestinian and also my identity as as a musician and it's an extremely special experience because the orchestra is made up of musicians professional palestinian positions who live all around the world and work professionally and they we gather for the sake of this orchestra and all of us feel this sense of very strong identity as a palestinian and we have something very very specific and very passionate and important to communicate to the world and this makes the experience unlike any other i feel. when the palestine national archives to that day
a young somali refugee thrilled to gain u.s. residency in twenty sixteen. that was lucky too good to hear i was a really really good said my granddad but with anti immigrant sentiment under the trump presidency al-jazeera world ask sally with some whether his american dream is still alive. in america at this time on al-jazeera. i know there were plenty of clouds pushing its way across the middle east at the moment it shows up on the satellite picture drifting its way towards the east the think is clouded in the northern parts and that's still with us as we head through the day on tuesday but for the south it's breaking up largely and we've just got
some thin clouds a bit further towards the south but that will make you wait twenty one degrees will be maximum here and here it could be a little bit dusty at times before you head further south we can see that in doha there won't be a great change in our weather over the next few days at least the winds eased off now so it's not quite as cool and fresh as it has been in twenty four degrees or seventy five fahrenheit will be our maximum for the south it's malda forces usually insula temperatures making it to around twenty seven or twenty eight degrees as we head through the next few days down to was the southern parts of africa there's lots of heavy rain here and some of that is giving us quite a few problems you can see that what with all stretching its way through because involved way there and across towards madagascar very heavy downpours here we have seen some flooding out of this system as well further south just a couple of showers there in the eastern parts of madagascar and elsewhere is looking largely drive we could see a couple of showers in the western parts of south africa there on choose day but by wednesday they ease off cape town there is to looking draw
a temperature and twenty five. the scene for us where on line what is american sign in yemen that peace is possible but not what happens not because the situation is bad but because no one cares or if you join a sunset there are people that there are choosing between buying medication eating this is a dialogue i want to get in one more comment because this is someone who's an activist and just posted a story join the global conversation at this time on al-jazeera. al-jazeera. and. it was appalling which modern day venezuela was to stop. for over
a century this lucrative resorts has divided the people less than cursed with the world's largest reserves. charting the impact of industrialization and the legacies of its prominent leaders we shed light on the troubles afflicting venezuela today the big picture the battle for venezuela at this time. asia's stock markets plunge just wall street losses spread around the world. as i'm sick of this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up a former president of moldings and to supreme court justices all arrested hours
