7:48 am
oakland raider deal that is $20 million a year that alameda county and oakland's taxpayers are still paying. that's a hefty price for 2000 jobs in the ball. >> however if you look at the long-term solution to keep the teams here, we need to look at them. that is politically why we couldn't go back to the voters and say we need another 300 million so we have to get a privately financed stadium. they have exclusive negotiating agreement and make things happen. >> the raiders -- they say they have a deal with the joint powers authority. alameda that has three different political groups.>> let's get to enough of this. there is a deal that stands now with the talking of it because no one is getting specific is that we will give them the land and help with the

let's take a look at your sunday forecast. first here is a live shot of dublin where it is clear that we have patchy fog in parts of the bay area. here is what you can expect today. cooler and breezy or than the weather we had yesterday but sunshine as we had to the
8:14 am
afternoon. possible sprinkles for the far south bay monterey bay area later on today. let's look at our temperatures. we have 60s today. 65 santa clara. 64 in mountain view. 65 fremont. 55 in redwood city. east bay, pittsburgh 63 today. 65 walnut creek. livermore 63 degrees today. 65 san francisco. cooler on the coast. the north bay 65. today a little cooler and breezy or than yesterday. mildest we had to the work week and it will stay dry. as we roll into friday increasing clouds any chance for showers on saturday. we need to find new ways to amplify the voices of peace and inclusion. and we especially need to do it
8:15 am
online.>> president. obama says the usa is not at war with islam but has said the people who have twisted the religion and the key battles to fight are in our own state. >> comments have generated discussion and the controversy joining us this dr. were billy oh, director on the council of islamic relations. was the council invited to this meeting? >> no. and we are the largest organization so it's a question for the white house. one of the most active on the ground working in the community. >> any idea you were excluded? >> what did you think of the summit? >> we had serious civil liberties. the summit ruled out community which doesn't make sense to us because we're more likely to be killed. impaired community outreach with law enforcement
8:16 am
which is problematic because it approaches a community that is driving law enforcement lens. >> how do you not do that? law enforcement -- we're talking about countering violent extremism and law enforcement will be able to -- you will be. if it is coming out of religious organizations of one form or the other how do you not play the two? >> the entire summit, the model comes from what is not working in europe and what's not working in europe is having law enforcement go into communities to do outreach. the agents who are failing the community. they are sending in performance and not having conversations about violence being an issue that impacts all communities and looking at the active shooter. you are more likely to be killed by an active shooter by an active extremist.
8:17 am
the other part of that is it excludes an entire conversation about what are the injustices and grievances that isis and others are using to tug at the heartstrings of people. without a conversation about where policy plays in we can't go anywhere. >> let's split that up. this is on domestic. first of all he's talking about if we step away from law enforcement and talk about what the community can do. do you believe there is such a thing as radical islam? >> there are misguided individuals who are hijacking the system. >> they are sending out images that the world is -- and that is not helpful. they are also recruiting the dispossessed countries, people from denmark and netherlands. united states.
8:18 am
people being recruited to the internet. what are your feelings? >> his comments were great. the words on matching his actions but the community has a great record of reporting people when they need to be reported of counseling people when they need counseling. it's phenomenal it is less than two dozen people in the united states who have led the delegates. we're doing it better already than elsewhere. >> what is it about the isis ideology that appears to be attractive to younger people? >> it seems and without being able -- it seems that isis is appealing to people sense of injustice. that people feel like there is wrong's happening in our foreign-policy and others are dying in the world. by not having that piece of the conversation any conversation -- >> every time we turn on the television or listen to the president he is talking about that. the inequities here and abroad
8:19 am
and the need for change in social justice. that is part of the conversation. >> as long as guantanamo stays open and a policy doesn't change at the heads of state from the muslim majority countries who are perpetuating foreign-policy that are violating human rights cases are invited and included as equal players we are not having a conversation about it. it was the king of the united arab emirates who was at this conversation. this is a group that is notorious for human rights abuse. >> how would you exclude -- i guess you want to exclude these people that they are at the heart of where this is happening.>> i guess the issue is we need to separate domestic conversation from the foreign conversation. in the foreign context we see political insurgency against corrupt leaders. where there are revolutions and corrupt leaders there is
8:20 am
violence. what we're saying is by not having a complete conversation and not being nuanced in it that we can't address the problem. >> for many people out there if we continue to have complete conversations and nuance where it is the world and this and that nothing ever gets sator done. >> right.>> let's have pieces of it and separate pieces of it. we can't do this without acknowledging violence is a problem across minute he communities. >> thank you for joining us. this one will be going around for a while.>> political figure in the bay area. we will here if a political philly brown had anything to do with that.
8:21 am
8:22 am
8:23 am
a surprise front-runner who could replace boxster in the u.s. senate. support for various candidates -- said they would support condoleezza rice. she's given no indication she will run. harrises and and she got 46%. >> this is a predominantly democratic state and how to somebody like condoleezza rice with her time with the bush administration wind up in the lead. was good to carla and willie brown.>> condoleezza rice is a serious contender.>> this is a democratic state and yet the republican comes to a head in the senate race. how crazy is that? in california we have two african-american women who are one and two in the polls in the senate race.>> that was your idea. right on the show you said if
8:24 am
condoleezza rice should be the candidate. >> i made an observation. pseudo-journalist we do this and that is evaluate the options and know what's included.>> i have interacted with her often enough that if she really gets out there she will be formidable. i think that it's too early even with the numbers being what they are to suggest that she be anything other than a competitor. the numbers to reflect she has 75% of republican vote and she pulls well with democrats but really big among independent voters. after a rack and bush. >> maybe there is room for somebody in this. >> about memories, really big problem. year in and year out.
8:25 am
i can assure you that by the time condoleezza rice if she becomes a candidate is actually a candidate you will see her with george bush in one hand and all of the things that he did in the other. and believe me in this blue state that is not going to wear well. she is going to have to work. she will be very competitive. it will be very costly but it will be fun.>> it's interesting, i spoke with a pollster and he thought that her popularity is her likability. politics aside people like her. >> she is a great speaker and she is bright. she is totally likable. she is out there all the time and people adore her. they forget about things. >> she is probably the only charming republican in the whole state of california. you don't even think of her as
8:26 am
a republican. she doesn't have the brand and you don't hear us suggesting that obama is from another planet. she doesn't do that. she is clever. >> i talked with a pollster and they had the golf tournament. she played in it. she was with everybody in erecting. when she was on her numbers went up. when they were pulling those four days are numbers went up. people like her. it goes a long
