5:03 pm
conditions stands against everything i believe in fighting against racism oppression and injustice so we can we can understand from about the michigan congresswoman won't be traveling to israel and to the west bank now in response to that the israeli interior minister and a interior minister are you dairies said the u.s. congresswoman has request a visit was a provocation to embarrass the country after she rejected israel's offer to let her to travel to the occupied west bank to see family there on humanitarian grounds and that's repairing back to also the tweet and to a letter written on thursday by to leave where she had requested entry to the west bank and israel so that she could visit her elderly grandmother now we also know that the other congresswoman who was also part of this. omar she remains banned from traveling to israel so how was congress to israel's treatment israel of course

5:05 pm
which is being very critical of omar on telly in the past had actually said that it was also a mistake on the part of israel and that they should nonetheless at the spike their support for the boycott of israel. they should nonetheless be allowed to travel to israel and then what's also quite notable is the silence will say from the republican party. we've heard very little reaction from the outside but in fact president donald trump who was speaking at a rally in new hampshire yesterday didn't really go into the topic as much as many people expected he did mention it he said it was the right decision on the part of israel and what sort of happened is that there's a belief here many critics are saying that the republican party are attempting to say that the democrats are divided over their support for israel by highlighting and using to leave the omar as sort of examples of what the democratic party
5:06 pm
believes or what their feelings are towards israel but in fact we just have to look back at last month when in fact the house of representatives of course democratically led. voted overwhelmingly in favor of a resolution against the the israel boycott movement so at the moment we're hearing very little like i said from the republican party but the democrats are putting a lot of support behind omar and. obviously washington thank you. china appears to be getting ready to take direct action against protesters in hong kong after a newspaper viewed as a mouthpiece for beijing has backed intervention the global times says that if hong kong can restore the rule of law on its own it is imperative for the central government to take direct action the paper also insists there would be no repeat of

5:19 pm
a long stretch of last season they were not holding the number one spot of the table something that byron has become accustomed to doing you know and dog meat had an opportunity to to pretty much secure the title but things worked out differently in bahrain snuck up through the back door and secured you know their 7th title in a row but in terms of the start of this season there's been a rough patch they kicked off their season against. their rival in the super club cup and they need to tighten up some issues the result wasn't the way they wanted and we have a report on it phillips take a look. first test the season could have brought their 1st trophy instead the super cup against dortmund in early august draws only frustration the champions have failed to significantly strengthened their squad and they were exposed by their closest rivals without direct replacements for departed you are in robin and frankly the re
5:20 pm
a title defense will be anything but easy. the fact is that we definitely have to make an of a signing i said it last year we had to serious injuries with contract to lease so and if you are poor and they cost as a lot of potential we have to be prepared for that if we want to achieve our goals we need a good squad not just enough players but real top quality players. has received one new player in the past few days attacking midfielder even paris each has joined on loan from him to milan. but even he accepts the squad as it is might need further reinforcements. at least 70. first if you want to be. on the top of it through your solo during the season there is always some interest that the series of. parasites can't even play in by an open accounts have to buy lean he suspended after picking up too many
5:21 pm
yellow cards in the italian top flight last season yet another headache for the champions last term club president we heard his promise to pre-season of spectacular transfers it hasn't materialized and buy and will now have to make do with what they've gone against and maybe beyond. what's on your plate despite the lack of big name signings but and usually that part of the 1st game of the season right you know the statistics tell us when they win the opener they've gone on to win the season and then they hold all sorts of goal scoring records and in so on you know but in terms of them not signing big names they might still be the market leader who was recently injured he's still at man city defensively they had to tighten up i think they've done that in the signing of benjamin provide lucas hernandez and michael neuer seems healthy that will help a bunch but in terms of their opponents have to berlin they have
5:22 pm
a new coach a homegrown product a guy who's only has experience in the 4th division he basically coached the reserve team had to berlin things in walk work out with paul gardai so which you know is getting his debut in the bonus think it's our flight as a head coach and he had this to say about the upcoming affair with. i'm excited rather the nervous because i think we've had a wonderful time recently in pre-season we've tog with well we are well prepared for the game so we'll see what happens thanks again. so what about the season as a whole how do you most likely to you know the big narrative is it is this dortmund's year do you know dortmund did everything that they did to improve they could to improve it in terms of signing players early when they had a chance to integrate themselves into the system you know talking has been brought as well as nico scholtz and then as you mentioned before experience defender you
5:23 pm
know former players well that's the big question is this their year to dethrone munich you know. firstly think no it's not i think i think what we saw last year is we saw dortmund have the title in their grasp and then you know when it got tough when the rubber met the road they kind of losing their grip and bars were able to capture you know a consecutive title i think the game is more mental than physical but we'll see byron you know test the waters will get a good eye test in their performance tonight against head to berlin but all in all i do think byron are capable of repeating kris hollington they don't use both thank you. can your of course a famed for its well beating long distance runners but the country's reputation has suffered recently following a string of doping scandals this brought the country to the brink of disqualification from the rio olympics in 26 staying ahead of tokyo 2021 years anti doping agency has stepped up its efforts but faces an uphill battle. in kenya the
