12:00 am
three hundred priests sexually abuse more than a thousand children in the state of pennsylvania over the past seventy is well joining us now on the news greater is father james breath ski who is an associate professor of theology at marquette university he is via skype from where walking in the u.s. state of wisconsin thank you very much for being with us on the news great first of all i want to get your reaction on what we heard from the pope today in ireland he talked about the failures of the ecus yes to communities repellent crimes he said did he say enough in your opinion well not enough and i think you himself recognize essence of it now but it's important that he is using words like you know italian men which is a failure so it's not just what this person or that person didn't do everything they should but there's a real breakdown in the ecclesia please you know culture and i think he's grappling with what i found interesting and perhaps surprising is that he expressed regret
12:01 am
but he didn't apologize and he also didn't specifically mention the current scandal in the u.s. over the grand jury report documenting a thousand cases of at least a thousand cases of child victims of church abuse what does that say to you about where he's headed in dealing with the issue specifically looking at the u.s. tell us about the reactions that to that scandal. well i think it's a multi-pronged dennis' going to be an incremental reaction he gave a letter to the people trust of the people of god where he did bring up this pennsylvania grand jury report so that came out a few days ago and i thought that that was very well written but he didn't apologize and i think that that was a missed opportunity i think there is the ecclesial culture is going to have to shift at every level including at the top with the pope himself. a father i want to
12:02 am
read to you some of the comments here i'm getting from some vavi us some very interesting comments i have come here from of you on facebook sadhu says he doesn't care abuse in the church is tad isco another one here for a mole also on facebook who says the pope has proven time and time again that his rhetoric and his actions are two different things there are a lot of people who say that he has gone further than any of the pope that he's a reformer in addressing the issue but ac as good and as committed as some people think he is on this issue. well i would say you is because he doesn't have a magic wand that somehow he could wave and then everything would be ok again and people would be happy the way he's going to have to do it is to make this person rather than this other person bishop to take this line in his rhetoric rather than this other line right and if you look at some of the reactions of bishops in the united states there are some that still say the real problem is gay seminarians and
12:03 am
the pope is is say no the real problem is clericalism in the church and it's broader and more deeply rooted in it's going to take a longer time to uproot ysaye has committed and at the same time his actions seem to say the contrary in australia recently for instance there were some concrete proposals recommendations. of abuse in the church but they were rejected by the pope what does that suggest that well i don't know which which should mr chips you have in mind so if you could tell me which was ok let's talk about the special vatican commission for instance that was created by the pope to tackle abuse by senior clerics but a lot of the reforms have been have you know not been implemented suggest that safety policies have not be have not been implemented which some people would say suggest that he alone cannot restore faith faith in the in the catholic church that
12:04 am
they're perhaps people holding him back would you agree with that. well i mean i would say there are people holding them back but not in the sense that is keeping him from doing more is just he's the pope he's not god so he can do what he can do but you can't change people's hearts overnight so in the united states i mean i don't i've never been to australia so i can't speak too much about that but he made states to give him example he has he has put in as bishops people who are much more in tune with him and his approach rather than elevating some of the others that were very popular during the part of the front effective approach john paul the second or benedict the sixteenth so he's trying to change the culture in the only way that it's going to be significantly affective and that's by changing the leaders one last question for you father many of the abuse victims that we've been hearing from my demanding action and not just words from the pope they want
12:05 am
more than an apology what in your view should be a concrete action what needs to happen to end sexual abuse in the church and also heal the physical and psychological damage. well this is a very very grievous wound and you can't just put a band-aid on make sure management still get no readings better again it's going to take a long time to heal i think the incidence of sexual abuse at least in the united states have certainly dramatically declined in the last ten fifteen years but he really i think is going to have to i think remove some bishops who are chronic in the cover up he's removed a couple but he's going to have to remove many more of that thank you very much father rossetti for speaking to us father briggs esky is an associate professor of theology at marquette university joining us on the news great via skype thank you very much for your time and my surgery the pope francis a real reformer while that was the question on a recent episode of upfront with mehdi hasan
12:06 am
a very interesting discussion between catholic right is and analysts pope francis as a savage himself as a people spoke he's popular around the world as we've heard and has a reputation a solid one but how successful have his reforms been check out the show by clicking on the shows tab on al-jazeera al-jazeera dot com and then click on up front and as you can imagine we're getting quite a lot of comments on this you can keep them coming using the hash tag news great moving on to other world news now it's been a year since man last military launched a crackdown against what it says on groups but the violence that followed has been described as a campaign of ethnic cleansing against overhand to muslims about seven hundred thousand people fled to neighboring bangladesh and the refugees there have been holding peaceful protests demanding justice and a safe return to their homes are now more than a million people living in camps near the border has become the world's largest refugee settlement bangladesh has signed a deal with myanmar to allow the refugees to return home but the repatch relation
12:07 am
process has been stalled correspondent mohammed john jones has been in and out of cox's business since the range of prices began and he sent us this video giving his assessment of the situation a year on and whether he thinks these people will ever find a proper home. first i was here was in october of two thousand and seventeen. it was pain and suffering and trauma it was misery on a skill so massive that it was almost unfathomable. and then i returned last month in early july and what i saw shocked me because i saw improvements to the infrastructure of camps like this. that were just stunning to see that so much work has been done bridges have been built and dams have been built and and roads have been built so much has been done and yet even though the infrastructure so much
12:08 am
improved the conditions are still dire the living conditions are still substandard i mean take a look at this these are. they're made of bamboo and most of them are built on on what you see behind on these hillsides this used to be forest land to speak of the forested and so they're on the sand the muddy hillsides whenever it rains these are here in rome to naturalism. and you know improvements still work in the speedo. well think tanks n.g.o.s and u.n. agencies are all marking this anniversary mainly with reports that criticize me and mars government for how it's handled the real hinge refugee crisis amnesty u.k. is named specific officials it says should be held accountable for the five rights there accuses the government of committing atrocities an action aid u.k. addresses the issue of gender violence now the world refugee council also released
12:09 am
a video focusing on that issue it says fifty two percent of the written giraffe you g.'s are women and girls and almost all of them have faced some form of sexual violence. many of them have also been vocal about what they've been put through this protest took place and clue to how long that refugee camp and cox's bazar in bangladesh on this anniversary of the violence and the women they are marching and chanting for justice now one woman who many say should be marching and chanting for justice is nobel laureate on song suchi some critics blame the head of mi and mars government for delaying just as this tweet here says that she has a lot to answer for you'll see a lot of that going around today a lot of international groups are pointing the figure to her they've indicated that they degree suit she's been stripped of the freedom of edinburgh award this week it's the seventh award she's lost just this year since she's even received criticism from her fellow nobel laureates malala use of side last year she released
12:10 am
a statement saying over the last several years i have repeatedly condemned this tragic and shameful treatment i'm still waiting for my fellow nobel laureate aung san suu kyi to do the same the world is waiting and the hinge of muslims are also waiting since the supporters say that she's doing the best she can given the military's power in me in bars government but we'd like to hear what you think what you think of handling of the situation over the past year you can let us know using the hash tag it is good. and if you've missed it on t.v. i want to point to you this excellent documentary by our team at all just our world will hinge on a silent abuse it's an in-depth investigation into the plight of myanmar's ethnic minority they're denied citizenship forced from their homes and subjected to cool t. howling account an interesting film watch if you can on our website at al-jazeera dot com palestinian leaders have accused the chump administration of resorting to cheat blackmail with its decision to cut two hundred million dollars in aid for the
12:11 am
occupied west bank and the gaza strip the u.s. state department says the money will go towards high priority projects elsewhere in january the u.s. slashed its continue to its contribution rather to the u.n. agency for palestinian refugees on raw after this latest funding blow the palestine liberation organization said palestinians would not be bullied into giving up their rights but has moved from gaza. it is difficult to know which projects will be directly affected by this announcement of more than two hundred million dollars being held with by the u.s. but it's safe to say that american funding has been doing in recent years certainly the last two years seventy five million dollars sent each year for palestinian projects we understand most of that went to hospitals in jerusalem as well as electricity projects here in gaza. let's put it in context it was earlier this year that the us said that it was withholding around three hundred million dollars from
12:12 am
on the united nations relief and works agency here that's had a massive impact so the u.n. say hundreds of people made redundant in that organization and when you look at the level of suffering which gazans have enjoyed now for nearly twelve years of israel's land air and sea blockade around ninety percent of gaza's water is on drink kubel around four hours of electricity only being received in certain areas of gaza rule sewerage being pumped into the ocean fifty percent of the population living under the poverty line fifty percent unemployment down here so yes this announcement from the us if you get more money being held withheld for palestinian projects could potentially have a massive impact not only here in gaza but the occupied west bank also child stratford in gaza that let's speak some more about this not today hadan who is
12:13 am
a former u.s. aid assistant administrator his line from washington d.c. thank you very much for joining us here on news great the former u.s. ambassador to israel daniel shapiro says that cutting these funds will not only have a negative impact on palestinians but is also harmful to israel and i understand that you share this you tell us why why is this also i lobbying for israel. well thank you for having me on and i completely agree with investor dan shapiro the the united states says essentially ceded the political space to hamas and other rejectionist were creating a vacuum by leaving gaza and the west bank and in so doing not only have returned back on the palestinian people but we've also created a greater risk for israel what exactly is this funding for what is the money meant for just explain it to us if you can at end how is it vetted how
12:14 am
how it how do they make sure that it doesn't go into the wrong hands the. u.s. assistance to the palestinians has this historically had to functions one is to provide humanitarian assistance to the most vulnerable and the second is to help solve problems between the parties and we've been able to fundamentally change the nature of water negotiations in the west bank and we've opened up trade corridors in the west bank that created economic opportunity but transformed the political and security environment in indigenes jhala may area so that's you know that's what we do in terms of protecting the use of funds and to make sure that there is no diversion we have a very rigorous system that allows us to audit all of the work that we do weave that all of the people that we work with and we have outside
12:15 am
reviewers that common and assess everything that we have done in just recently in fact in the last two weeks that. the congressional general accountability office came out and found just. sterling and use of funds in the fiscal years fifteen and sixteen so no no diversion no risk no noncompliance one hundred percent audits and yet and we're seeing american funding going down in recent years there are a lot of people would say that this undermines the u.s. position with regards to these really palestinian conflict what does it say about u.s. policy going forward. i think first and foremost we're ceding the space so. from my perspective i think it was important for the u.s. to be in the in the water sector in in the health sector in the palestinian education sector we fundamentally change the nature of of the of the
12:16 am
northern west bank with economic opportunity and private sector trade so now we're leaving now we've concluded. that we have other priorities and and so doing we well have empowered hamas i mean is just a simple as that and you don't have about the take my word for it i mean you can simply ask any of the security professionals american or israeli or palestinian track those very closely when we leave that hume will be filled by hamas and other rejectionists dave harden thank you very much for speaking to us dave harden is a former usaid assistant administrator he was joining us and from washington thank you for your time well gaza has a very young population half of the two million people living there are under the age of seventeen some of them have already lived through three wars conflicts in two thousand and eight two thousand and twelve and twenty fourteen and the scars inside and outside remain there is under simmonds visit
12:17 am
a young girl still living with the trauma of a severe head injury she sustained in twenty fourteen. look into how you would never guess what this child has been through. is six yet she suffered both pain and anguish for most of his short life. she's aged two here in the twenty fourteen gaza war she sustained what was described as life changing head injuries intricate surgery in turkey and three months of recuperation that saved her life. it was an israeli air attack the very nearly killed nama. not this one. nor the us. these are recent strikes a whole night of bombardment with outgoing hamas rockets and continued attacks from israel claiming it struck more than one hundred fifty star gets before what's meant

12:19 am
feels helpless because he can't support his family on a good month he might earn a hundred dollars on a market stall in the street but it barely covers his rent his landlord has an eviction order place the family live in a neighborhood where poverty is the norm worse than that they're inside the rules of gaza affectively it's like a prison what is life like in gaza well that's not really an accurate term more of an existence and this existence phenomena is one of many short sad stories different and don't tell the suffering is much the same. while the long term ceasefire talks go on involving egypt and the un mediating between israel and hamas with gaza there's no message from this from any of the parties involved just an expression of despair like the fast majority of gazan civilians.
