6:02 am
venezuelans rather than colombia it's not the first time that but is it in their q. says colombia of some intervention in their political situation in venezuela but i think whatever happens today it is bro really it was started in. amman when a swell and this military group remember one year ago or so it was her know that initiative coming also from some rebels one of their own all scarred paris who was killed by the minister lang special forces so it's not the first time and it proved that the military is the by that in the they they started to feel that the whole situation the crisis because this situation in venezuela is only better will already we saw that but is it my lord or some days ago announce a big change in their financial lives system in minutes for recognizing that he
6:03 am
failed so they are going to slash five c. rows in the korean c. and he's some. day they will see really to make possible. the libyan assailants to have her and now korean sea port in korean sea so it's a recognition that the economic situation is very bad so what we see right now is her part of the this is this have this faction i'm on venezuelans there's been a huge protest in israel led by the druze community against a controversial nation state law that defines israel as a jewish state and downgrades the arabic language tens of thousands of people have crammed into televisa rabin square on saturday waving druze flags and holding signs calling for the bill to be provokes the druze are considered loyal to the state it's the first time in recent history they've staged a large protest. more now from under simmons who's been at the protest. it's rare
6:04 am
for the druze to protest in public at all 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 choice to listen to a book as far as the jews are concerned they are adamant that this law has to be changed radically or ditched i travel to bates' jang in northern galilee to find out what the people were saying on the ground. on his from a minority excluded by israel in its nation state law she's a druze arab and her two sons were killed during military service for israel. she makes a promise. the americans you have there if this law doesn't change i will get your
6:05 am
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 yeah i mean became a prison officer in an israeli jail and he says that experience changed his perspective he became a human rights lawyer and activists for palestinians in the occupied west bank. i feel sad in the blood of my brothers was shed and crying 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
6:06 am
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 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 measure 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 in the nationality law made this very clear. bates jans dead soldiers
6:07 am
make the feeling of betrayal here more potent more than sixty 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 law. the question now is how much more pressure can be put on the 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 protests planned 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 over joining of demonstrations by jews is unclear no one knows really where this is going right now. who the rebels in yemen say they've attacked the king holiday air base in saudi arabia
