2:00 am
this is al jazeera. hello i'm rob matheson and this is the news our live from doha coming up in the next sixty minutes. that should george take the not to kill shall we ask the government and the other name by the knesset to delete these still led by the druze community tens of thousands of people protest against israel's new nation state law . a league to un report says north korea has not stopped its nuclear and missile program. and he may be in prison but one of brazil's most popular presidents lula da silva is nominated to run for office again plus.
2:01 am
police in the u.s. state of oregon although rival protesters to go home after demonstrations turned violent. there's been a huge protest in israel led by the druze community against the controversial nation state law it defines israel as a jewish state and downgrades the out of it language tens of thousands of people have crammed into television that are being square on saturday waving druze flags and holding signs calling for the bill to be revoked the druze are considered loyal to the state it's the first time in recent history that they've staged a large protest. this no should be changed should be changed over merit although citizen is an equal we cannot accept something else because we are citizen bit dark
2:02 am
set of army boot i want to do it year and we expect from the co of the government to look to us like everybody i mean israeli jew i'm originally from the united states i'm proud to stand with my jews brothers and sisters for equality because everyone deserves a fair chance and safety and opportunity our message that is that we're all equality ok so where want equal rights for everyone for drury's for jewish people for eg to be t.v. people for everyone more not for mines or simmons who's been at the protest. it's rare for the druze to protest in public at seoul and these are extraordinary numbers at one stage robin square was packed with people jewish people young people old people not only the labor and the other left wing parties of israel represented here but ordinary folk coming in off the streets have the peace to listen. as far
2:03 am
as the jews are concerned they are adamant that this law has to be changed radically or ditched i travel to h. jiang in northern galilee to find out what the people were saying on the ground. salma zedong his from a minority excluded by israel in its nation state law she's a druze arab and had two sons were killed during military service for israel. she makes a promise that you were there if this law doesn't change i will get your bodies excluded from this military cemetery and bury you in your grandfather's land. back home is her youngest son yeah i mean his brother's fuad who was eighteen and twenty three year old sylar gave compulsory service in the military yamin became a prison officer in an israeli jail and he says that experience changed his
2:04 am
perspective he became a human rights lawyer and activists for palestinians in the occupied west bank. i feel sad the blood of my brothers was shed and planning for a lie in an illusion they may have thought the military would give them rights but this law just proves that israel used them like mr aris. the druze are in all ranks for example major general chemical abu rukun is the new coordinator of operations in the occupied territories there is no public comment from him any soldier showing dissent is suspended. we ask the soldiers and officers not to get involved in this load and to depend on us terry for and his delegation were given the promise of a new law giving benefits to minorities in the military but back in beit jan and elsewhere that isn't enough most feel nothing short of scrapping the nation state law will do you can still sense the anger here despite political developments and
2:05 am
questions about loyalty continue to reverberate one of them whether young people will still feel the same way about joining the israeli army. this former soldiers loyalty is tested maj decal tb completed his military service before setting up a restaurant business now he doesn't want his son to become a soldier. it's up to him but now i say military service shouldn't be compulsory it's all a lie that we've been living for a long time and the nationality law made this very clear. bates jans dead soldiers make the feeling of betrayal him more potent more than sixteen names written in hebrew and below what now becomes an unofficial language arabic one of many measures in what most people in this village believe is a racist little. the question now is how much more pressure can be put on the
2:06 am
government will there be any change will it's highly unlikely that benjamin netanyahu will change his policies but then public pressure can affect us there are further protest plans not only by crews who represent two percent of the population but also the israeli arabs who represent twenty percent and then of course the option of more possible demonstrations all the joining of demonstrations by jews is clear no one knows really where this is going right now israel's jews communities say they feel betrayed because they're being made into second class citizens the druze speak arabic and they have their own distinct religious and cultural traditions as we mentioned they make up two percent of israel's population and they're found mainly in the northern regions of galilee and carmel i says well as most integrated minority the jews do military service is under was explaining around six out of ten men have served in the israeli armed forces but not i wish i
2:07 am
is a professor of political economy dartmouth college in the us and he's joining us now on skype from boston thank you very much indeed for your time so i want to talk about the events of today in a moment but just for those of us who are coming to the story a little bit later give us some background if you would with regard to the nation state law that was on the backburner for quite a long time with the next new netanyahu government how much of this introduction of this law do you think is down to a genuine belief that that is what israel needs and how much of it is an appeasement to the right wing elements of the coalition of the netanyahu government ahead of the elections in two thousand nineteen. well i think you've answered your own question. the nation state law really doesn't change very much. many of the institutions of the nascent jewish stay the nascent state of israel already privileged jewish immigrants etc we all know this and
2:08 am
it's been that way since the beginning there have been many supremes court decisions which have created space for. theocratic ideas about what a jew is etc but there was never a constitutional varnish on the status quo the nation state law really kind of added insult to injury it has a symbolic importance because liberals in the country and by that i don't just mean druze or arabs obviously a great many jews who are there in great numbers tonight. are interested in promoting an idea of equality and who see the nation state bill as a kind of effort of the rightist government to in shrine in constitutional law.
2:09 am
an inequality between people who have a certification by the rabbinate that they are jews or have a kind of clear ethnic descent from from from the jewish families and everybody else an inequality between them and everybody else something which was implied by a great many institutions but never had the force of law and the liberals in the country thought that they could slowly degrade that privilege and advance equality through another law the law of human dignity. and now find themselves facing this obstacle do you think that the netanyahu government has perhaps miscalculated the the of main part of the nation state law given the wide range of people that's not just the druze are obviously protesting today but they are there in significant numbers but there's a wide range of representation on the streets. it's a it's
2:10 am
a great question and i wish i could give you a clear cut answer or at least an answer which is not so infected by my own wishful thinking. obviously the druze are leading this now leading this demonstration there are many israeli arabs like lucy how to reach the television very well known television commentator was there tonight also and many others in the i'm very liberal community the jews are leading this the same way that the blacks and black leadership led the civil rights movement in the united states and in fact jews led civil rights movements in western europe throughout the nine hundred century you always look to the minorities to. teach the country what the ideal of citizenship really is now natanya who has been fighting.
2:11 am
to. always make every election look like it's an us versus them world. and make himself the in dispense the indispensable power against a and a and in circling beseeching hateful region that will not accept the jews. if the next election is fought not on us versus them but on the question of are we a liberal democracy or are we going to be a big west bank settlement are we going to simply surrender to the rightist groups who are pushing this law and turn into a theocracy sort of turn ourselves into a little jewish pakistan if that if that's what the election will be fought on i think the opposition for the first time has a real shot especially since the army leadership which was very well
2:12 am
represented at the demonstration tonight to me are part of the x. mossad chief gabi ashkenazi the ex chief of staff very well represented people in the army who are saying listen this government is out of step with the need of this country to have a genuine ideal of citizenship and equality is a part of that diversion i think that's very innovative basis of the election forgive me having to answer and i apologize i'm afraid time is against us but we really appreciate getting your view on this thank you so much thank you who the rebels in yemen say they've attacked the king khalid the air base in the southern side the arabia using an armed drone who say they've targeted a runway used by the saudi and iraqi led coalition to launch air strikes on yemen the rebels on the veil the so-called one drone last year they've used it to attack a saudi aramco facility and an airport in saudi arabia the conflict armament
2:13 am
research group says the drones do not carry missiles but they have been used as suicide drones to target saudi air defenses in yemen spokesman has told al jazeera they're defending themselves against aggression from the military coalition led by saudi arabia the united arab emirates. had me how well sort of i mean this is a war it's not our choice we haven't been given any time to discuss things together the u.a.e. and saudi arabia have to stop their aggression because we defend ourselves and the question is against us the american ambassador and the saudi ambassador are trying to impose a government in yemen and this will not be accepted no matter the sacrifices because the yemeni people are now aware of the role of saudi arabia and other parties in yemen we are keen to restore our sovereignty in yemen well colorado has the latest from neighboring djibouti. a spokesman for the filthy fight to say that they are tucked out of runway on the king khalid in the south of so that it be it
2:14 am
which is mainly used by sodhi and u.a.e. fly to jets to carry out our talks on the positions of filthy fighters inside yemen he called the targets justified and said this is a wall and that they were fighting so d. and u e attempts to try and impose an popular government or on the people of yemen it's not the false time that who with the fight is claimed to have cut it out the tox deep is so deep and you eat teddy teddy last week they claim to have a tucked them only to find that he's in the saudi cup it's all reality on that one sixth of july they say that kind of out on a toc or international airport something that was quickly did night buy you a seashells if it is true that they've been cutting out these attacks it tells you that the who's the fights us up to the teeth and the so you equally should family
2:15 am
believes that it's iran that is supplying the who fight us with these weapons and one of the reasons why they are cutting out the toc on the city of they that and want the huth east kate saying it is a port which they have been using to rearm themselves. a un report says north korea is still building nuclear weapons and engaging in illegal trade in violation of international sanctions north korean leader kim jong un had promised to work towards dismantling the country's nuclear weapons program at a summit with donald trump in june well in jordan reports on the bring new diplomatic tensions around pyongyang's nuclear ambitions. north korea promised the u.s. in june that it was committed to ridding the peninsula of all nuclear weapons but experts monitoring north korea's disarmament efforts have just given the un security council a report saying kim jong own is breaking his promise and violating other
2:16 am
international sanctions in the process the expert's report says the north continues to build nuclear warheads and ballistic missiles and it's still illegally trading in oil coal textiles and weapons it's also making deals the report says with who the fighters in yemen the syrian government and libyan rebels at the all see on security forum in singapore u.s. secretary of state mike pompei o told reporters it's clear the north koreans are violating international sanctions including the complete shutdown of illegal ship to ship transfers of petroleum destined for north korea we have seen reports that russia is allowing for joint ventures with north korean firms and granting new work permits to north korean guest workers pump a zero and foreign minister re on hold greeted each other during the singapore meeting just as the u.s. was imposing new sanctions on to north koreans illegally doing business in russia
2:17 am
later accused the u.s. of not acting in good faith quote in order to build full confidence between the d.p. r. k. and the u.s. it is essential for both sides to take similar taney its actions and phase steps to do what is possible one after another what is alarming however is the insistent moves manifest it within the us to go back to the old far from its leaders intention. some critics of trump and cam's singapore summit in june say the u.s. did not demand enough accountability from north korea and so this new u.n. report really is no surprise many of us will be watching this very closely understand the nature of all. deception is part of it's our business model if you like and so you've been very skeptical all along about north korea in stepping up to in. the spirit of its commitments that he has articulated over the last few months the expert's report on north korea has not been officially released but the
2:18 am
linked report is raising new questions about whether palin yong is serious about giving up its nuclear weapons program and about whether the international community has the will and the ability to make it do so. rosalyn jordan al-jazeera at the united nations plenty more ahead in the news hour including bail denied in zimbabwe for opposition members who've appeared in court on charges critics say are politically motivated. speeding up the asylum process or isolating refugees germany opens its new centers. and in sports the dutchman tasked with helping to guide the african champions cameroon through a stormy period. brazil's jailed former leader louis enough eluded to silva has been nominated as the
2:19 am
candidate for his workers party in october as presidential election is currently serving twelve years in prison for money laundering and corruption polls suggest he still remains the most popular leader in brazil has more from sao paolo. from the outside many might be surprised that the former president. has been selected as the candidate by his workers' party the standing in october's elections they're convinced he is the man for the job he is the man to take brazil out of the current economic slump political problems that is suffering now almost in some ways putting to one side the fact he is in prison in the southern city of serving a twelve year prison sentence for corruption and money laundering charges and even if he were allowed out even if they let him out on the writ of habeas corpus to continue the appeals against that sentence it's still not clear whether he will be eligible to stand. that would have. by intellectual cause
2:20 am
a lot of ifs buts and maybes in this equation in the meantime the other parties the other candidates putting their names forward ahead of sunday's deadline for the october elections most notably. the former environment minister in lula's in lieu this government. and also right wing maverick candidates in many eyes are not all a thinker who attacks a great deal of controversy but is gaining in the opinion polls. this electorate feeling they don't have many options more than haul things said not knowing who they going to vote for going to move vote for none of the candidates or those voting is obligatory so it's a great deal of uncertainty in the two months until the elections she told us iran is a professor of international relations at catholic university of south pablo he's joining us now on skype from that brazilian city thank you very much for being with us i'm slightly confused about this whole process so a lot has been nominated but he yet he has to be legally allowed to stand and if
2:21 am
that doesn't happen what next for the workers' party then it's not a sham to be. not have sent him but rather most resumes don't know what's going on here. what the workers' party is doing gaining time spine time indicating look very nice approval rating with the public opinion. while we do. keep him in front of the ticket to keep him in the media. they don't have to put forward i'm not a candidate a substitute a b. plan and the opposition can't really. can't really draw negative dance of the real candidates so they're buying time but they no longer want to be on the ticket in october so their cards will probably strike down his nomination his candidacy and they'll have to come up with a different candidate most likely for me are some pounds over
2:22 am
a number of dodgy is he able to be nominated the b. plan candidate that they say they don't have a b. plan but let's just call them the be playing candidate is he able to be nominated at that late stage because my understanding from what dana was saying is that the deadline for nominations is actually sunday. well the deadline for nominations the sunday there's there's a legal argument to be made that they can change the candace and i'm not sure another approach inside the legal advisers is to but that he as the device candidate. and then once once he's not muslim is not on the ticket the vice ganda will be the first charge to be planned but he's not on the ticket as of yet. currently. another female candidate from a coalition party but said a bit. also left wing party in brazil is probably going to be the vice president
2:23 am
candidate for lula but they're trying to argue that in court and then put forward a new kind if lula doesn't stand well the workers' party still be able to garner as many votes as they would have got had he been on the ticket well not as many very much many very many votes i would say. was the man responsible for electing duma rousseff for his for her first and her second mandates and he has does it is amazing ability to relate to people to the right to the electorate and to transfer votes so of course there won't be as many votes as he was the kind that but he is too strong he's doing the strong face that people remember his time. he was hired by some of the corruption scandals he was hurt by the very harsh media contain against him but he has to be able to transfer very

2:28 am
is done is moved into so-called democratic areas blue areas as they are described critics contend that this is done with the express intention of fermenting and wrist in these particular areas and there's well that it is part of a larger strategic plan by supporters of president trump to undermine those groups that are not supporters of president so critics very strongly concerned about what they see as a strongly right wing movement interrupting or interfering with the political process within the united states the group itself though as i said maintains that it has a right to exercise free speech and that's what it attempts to do every time it demonstrates mike hanna live for us from washington d.c. thanks very much indeed. still ahead on al-jazeera european manufacturers rushed to deliver planes to iran ahead of a u.s. sanctions deadline and in sports. tend to score with

2:39 am
about any specific concern that is now being raised in certain courses indeed their books press satisfaction with our programs and indeed we remain grateful to the u.s. government and people to the sixty million they gave us this year they are one of our largest donor still but if any don't have credible reports misuse of funding we will investigate and take action but let's not lose sight of the fact that the mandate of under to provide emergency and human development services to palestine refugees is robustly backed by the international community through the un general assembly and to have at least seventy years and that's indoors that continues to be in place and while it is we will do our utmost to implement our mandate and provide services to some of the most disadvantaged people on the planet ok before we move on let me return you to our breaking news venezuela's president nicolas maduro has been rushed away from a military parade after an explosion this video on social media shows madonna and his wife flinching at the moment of the explosion before the audio feeds cut off
2:40 am
it's not yet known what's behind the blast the pictures also saw soldiers who'd been taking part in the parade fleeing the scene of we just got a couple of seconds we can see the soldiers moving off idol partly when the explosion happens patricia layer is a venezuela bureau chief for bloomberg news she's joining us on the line from the capital caracas patricia thank you very much for being with us do we know any more about what happened. yes hold the misinformation minister you heard had already just came on state t.v. and said that nicholas my little is on high after an apparent attack during a speech at a military parade in the capital and i guess he confirmed that they were jerome's carrying explosive charges that were detonated near the presidential stage where my little trust from blood that my little box i know that his wife the defense minister who were by his side i guess there are seven military officer officers who
2:41 am
are injured in urgent care right now and he said that my ludo will soon speak live on state t.v. to tell us more about what happened but there's a moment imagine that the security around the president is usually fairly tight but this was a military parade and yet these drones appeared to have been able to get very close to where the president was standing there are going to be questions i thought there about the level of security there. there is absolutely at this point we don't even know if maybe the drones were shot down by snipers which we know are there because we had a partner of us there who confirmed there were many snipers on the roofs of buildings near what the beach was happening so maybe the drones you know were taken down by the snipers that were there but at this point i'm just speculating this has not been confirmed the pictures are just very briefly i'm going to ask you to speculate which is it is rather unfair but given the fact that this has happened one would assume that there's going to be some sort of response by the venezuelan government this must make the opposition in venezuela very concerned yes absolutely so far
2:42 am
we have no sort of official response from the opposition we know that earlier this year there was a conspiracy to remove my we would have some power that was discovered. there's a lot that we have to learn from what happened today and i'm sure we'll have more detail on more responses even from the opposition later today on tonight. patricia is the venice one of unity for bloomberg news producer thank you very much indeed saudi arabia says it's resuming oil shipments through a key red sea route it suspended exports to the bubble monday straight ten days ago after saying two of its vessels were attacked by who the rebels who fighters insist they attacked a saudi m. iraqi coalition warship not a commercial vessel european aircraft manufacturers have been rushing to deliver planes to iran ahead of monday's deadline of u.s. sanctions iran bought twenty planes from the franco italian from
