operation let us work together to wipe out. america the coalition and turkey can join hands and turn rocket into a graveyard for dash. as the united states is aligned with two bitter enemies in syria the turkish government and the kurdish fighters it's got a tricky bit of maneuvering to do secretary of defense mattis says that the united states will eventually take back the weapons it's now supplying to the kurds after the defeat of isis and this is turning into no small matter at this point the united states is shipping in heavy machine guns mortars other small arms and even some armored vehicles it's totaling over one hundred million dollars worth of war toys a large portion of which are going to the kurds when it's all finished some five hundred u.s. military personnel will have the task of collecting it all in an area that's almost the size of pennsylvania maybe they'll knock on doors and say hey you know those weapons we let you yeah you're finished with them right and who knows what answer
11:10 am
they might get the united states has promised to monitor the area and send out a monthly report that will include photographs this sounds like a great idea as the usa has already lost track of billions of dollars worth of weapons they sent to iraq and some of those weapons have ended up in the hands of terrorists there i think mattis made chromos inuits that letter which presumably was gone but it still knowing very well that it probably would not be believed and very well would not be carried out but he made it trying to locate the target the u.s. is supplying the weapons for that it is the u.s. as a whole and. goals which seems to be to break a part of syria to loathe the u.s. to dominate a separate part of syria basically they want to go to syria. and in violation of syrian stubborn integrity a country is torn apart by civil war with different factions vying for power as

11:13 am
about the differences between the russian and american approaches in syria if you look at our strategies in the east both of these big plays one on the american side there is a two pronged approach which is confusing and conflicting at the best of times america wants to support a law which demographic of force is not its own of course but largely kurdish who are supposed to take over and destroy isis positions but the same time the americans also have their own geo political struggle within syria against the assad regime. and of course let's also forget. the other thing which is quite interesting is that their presence in syria is entirely illegal so if you contrast that against the russians the russians don't have such a complicated idea towards what they're doing or what their objectives are they simply want to hit isis and hit isis hard so that the extremist group can be completely eradicated we've been hearing from an eighty three year old woman who

11:16 am
just sitting next to him and he responded to a light clearly bad if it is sad in the torah bad manners should not sit next to a woman. a it's a fact i did not think that was the case. there is no or good news say. that supported me and brought suit the first hearing was eighteen months after we filed our lawsuit but we're very satisfied with the result. renee hobby know of each of the unlikely heroine a beautiful israeli in a way wonder woman was able to beat our main airline. is going to implement this verdict to all its thousands of employees and if within six
11:17 am
months someone else encounters something like what our heroine has encountered there. is open to an avalanche of lawsuits actually what the verdict says is that unless it shapes up there will be many many lawsuits it's illegal it doesn't matter religious feelings or non-religious feelings it is illegal to tell a person to move because of their gender who is wonderful about renee's case is it relays case the flight attendant turned to her and said to our eighty three year old holocaust survivor please move yourself move to a different seat it's the flight attendants participation that made this case so clear to the court. well this isn't the first time has hit the headlines for religious reasons last year and ultra-orthodox passenger broke two of the airplanes video screens when you consider the movie as a modest activists even made

use in flight and that's a problem they're going to have just solve. saudi arabia and other gulf states are presented at all with a list of demands that must be met if it wants a diplomatic and trade agreement restored these were surveyed over there has alleged support of terrorism middle east correspondent paula as more details todd has been presented with a list of demands from saudi arabia the united arab emirates parade and egypt four nations that qatar or trade and diplomatic ties with the country now this came after the u.s. state department questioned the motives of the gulf states move now that it's been more than two weeks since the embargo started we are mystified that the gulf states have not released to the public nor to the qataris the details about the claims that they are making toward. the more the time goes by the more doubt is raised
11:20 am
about the actions taken by saudi arabia and the us. at this point we're left with one simple question were the actions really about their concerns regarding carter's alleged support for terrorism or the about the long simmering grievances between and among the g.c.c. countries now the next day the us secretary of state rex tillerson issued a statement saying that a list of such demands has been prepared he added that he hoped that the demands would be reasonable and actionable saying that we understand that this list is being prepared it's being coordinated by the saudis the end of artie's each option is and the bahrainis and we hope that it will be presented to qatar with and will be treated as reasonable and actionable now the list includes thirteen demands in total here are some of them first and foremost to curb all diplomatic ties with iran the list and trade and commerce with iran that complies with the u.s. and international sanctions will be permitted now the two states share the biggest
11:21 am
natural gas field so that could be a problem as well at the same time that it calls for the severing of all the time is to terrorist organization the list mentions muslim brotherhood islamic state al qaida and hizbollah it calls on shutting down al-jazeera and all qatar funded news outlets to terminate to military presence in qatar to any joint military cooperation with turkey that is taking place inside of qatar it also calls for an end to interference in sovereign states internal affairs so in other words to stop all contacts with the political opposition in saudi arabia the u.a.e. egypt and the rain to hand over all files that detail qatar's prior contacts with and support for these opposition groups it also talks about paying reparations for loss of life and other losses that have been caused by qatar's policies now. the sum will be determined in coordination with qatar so thomas also consent to regular
11:22 am
order for the next ten years the list says that it needs to be agreement to all demands within ten days or the list becomes invalid now the document does not specify what the countries will do if qatar refuses to comply so of course it remains to be seen whether qatar will view these demands as either reasonable or actionable and shortly after the demands were published in the media the foreign minister of the united arab emirates accused of leaking them to the press he said it's either an attempt to undermine serious mediation or yet another sign of what he called callous policy now there's also been reaction from those mentioned in the demands al-jazeera for example called the gulf states for its closure nothing but a temp to silence the freedom of expression in the region in response to a demand towards qatar to abolish turkey's military presence so his defense minister said that would be an intervention in the country's bilateral relations with the consumer dish the dirt base in qatar is

against iran they catteries knew the costs and they avoided and they stayed away now the solid these were you know confronted with a situation that could play as a role model so they wanted to make it an example for others and started to bring up a new equation to make understand that the equation is if you accompany us you will sustain some losses because of a strain ties with iran and increasing the risk ratio for investment in projects in get there that's sure but if you stand against us or if you stay away from our all plan then the costs would be astronomical and comparable with what you have to pay if you obey us now here that they have raise some maximum demands in order to empty their hands of from their merits and winning races that had
11:25 am
made it. had we wait like its ties with the muslim brotherhood like its ties strong ties with hamas that gave him a say in the middle east peace in the palestinian he's really should also use the strong ties with iran that made it a player a good actor in the region. that could play both ways also al-jazeera i remember once the saudi king said what is only a small island with a network. it's true that he tried to despise kids out of several months ago but it also shows that they care a lot for al jazeera network and they know how. strong and powerful it is in promoting views so they have raised all these demands in order to empty their hands of the hall from the winning aces that he had and made
