accused of having a racist agenda we confront them on the issue. four am here in the russian capital and you're watching aren't international welcome to the program. there have been chaotic scenes near the holy sites temple mount and as israeli police moved into despair hundreds of protesting palestinians with tear gas down grenades and water cannon. zero. zero. zero zero zero.
zero. zero zero zero zero zero. zero. zero zero zero. zero. zero zero zero that green my kids saw there belong to r t aerobatics correspondent and then mari was caught up in the violence here's how she hid she described what happened to her and her. police. a police officer hit me in the back he punched me first. and then they kept pushing us. and asked about and i was trying to cover from the street another police officer came to me and he also pushed me to the. to the side of the street. what's happened is that people were gathering in the streets we were talking about the massive number of protesters who didn't do
anything and didn't throw stones at the israeli forces just peaceful they just were voicing slogans after that an israeli police car tried to and tear in between the protesters who blocked its way and one of the protesters what we saw was he throw a bottle a plastic bottle full to the police car after. so the whole police who are standing at the barrier behind me right now if you but there were lots of police standing there with all of their guns and equipment they start to throwing grenades to disperse the crowd and people began shouting more and throwing more bottles before. the israeli police violently there might have been some stones thrown afterwards but what was talking about the forest the first while that
clearly was used by the israeli police in a separate incident two palestinians have reportedly been killed in clashes with israeli forces and the west bank said the base violence is the latest in a week of protest against the installation of security cameras and metal detectors . some mosque security was stepped up after two israeli police men were killed in a terrorist attack carried out by palestinians since then have been refusing to go through the metal detectors and stat praying. and they say the new safety measures are an attempt to change the status quo. on friday there were more casualties. more israelis lost their lives and the clashes. russia and moderate syrian opposition have signed to a new agreement setting out for a first deescalation zone near damascus. tutor and kate contras discuss this
development here in the studio. finally is it the first deal that's been signed as a deescalation zone in the key strategic area of the scooter which is fifteen kilometers east of damascus and its key strategic area or one time population of two million people prior to the syrian conflict key point strategic importance signed a document it's the first time it sets out also how people are going to behave and also how they can keep the peace what is the deal mean in practice what in practice it's been a bit of a military free for all there so you have the government forces fighting against the rebel forces nor so you have the rebel forces fighting amongst themselves as well and you've you've had the reports of even the terror group job out factor for me as you know now. that was fighting there as well so now of course this sets out a peace process that is going to be no more fighting there we're going to have humanitarian and medical aid most of it's going to be a road map on how they rebuild the infrastructure there that's been decimated as we've seen by some of the pictures and also there's going to be
a means of having safe passage for the civilians that are left there been able to leave seems like there's progress it's been a long process so far but there will be next steps in terms of the syrian peace process what will it be well the idea is that this is the first of four particular deescalation zones while they're still nailing out the final details so we're also looking at other key flashpoints in homs and see whether they can then come together and establish four of these particular zones who will be responsible for ensuring that this deal is carried out well as you know as you were at the u.s. last interview stalks this is very much a follow up of what was happening there so the guarantors will be turkey iran and russia at the moment this particular deal has been trashed out growth but in cairo by egypt those are the three countries that were the initial peace talks and they're looking to work together to ensure that this is guaranteed this time around and also looks like it's going to be a long road ahead and see how they manage it. political and militant group hezbollah has officially confirmed that it's fighting terrorists alongside the syrian army at the syrian lebanese border.
the operations taking place and i suppose the last stronghold along the border with lebanon the terror group set up a military base there in a mountainous area inside syria as living state had been moving closer to the ourselves refugee camp just across the border in lebanon and the area has also been a place self operation for the nusra front or delves into the history of housefull us presence in syria. lebanon's hezbollah has long been fighting alongside assad government forces throughout the six year syrian civil war but for the first time the armed group is making it official. hezbollah claims it's driving isis terrorists as well as rebels out of the last
foothold on the syrian lebanese border a mountainous region seen here on the map the green part here is controlled by al nusra and rebels and the black here by isis so far sounds like just another development in the ongoing fight against terrorism in syria right so what's the big deal let's break it down. as well as presence in syria has always been a bone of contention as israel the u.s. and the arab league all view the group as a terrorist organization and levanon hizbullah a terrorist organization you just towns to shield the lives of tens of thousands of illegal rockets its militias stand side by side with syrian troops as they slaughter the syrian people. iran continues to support terrorism including palestinian terrorists and. hezbollah is a terrorist organization and they are currently. cross international.
infighting in another country over it's no way trying to demonize a group that is fighting against west against american against israeli and saudi interests in the region. but not everyone categorized as hezbollah fighters as terrorists the list of those who don't include syria russia china and of course iran which funds it and helped create the group in the eighty's the russian. allies and they came here legally they support us again the terrorists there are many politicians in the fighting these are the syrian army forces those forces with the usually called pro governments including his which is supported by the iranians his blood is fighting alongside this. block. against the terrorist groups the western media
has proven that there were supported by western countries by the united states by saudi arabia and also by israel. so why is hezbollah being more brazen in syria all of a sudden raising the flag by as. might be an attempt to assure the supporters of hezbollah that the fight will go on against the terrorist groups till the end looks like has both those waving its flags openly in syria as is feeling confident it's on the winning side. meanwhile one of america's most senior generals has admitted that the u.s. presence in syria has little legitimacy saying that if russia played the legal card washington could be obliged to leave the country. here's the conundrum we are operating in the sovereign country of syria. the russians they're there they're
stalwarts they're they're back stoppers have already uninvited the turks from syria we're a bad day away from the russians saying why are you still in syria us and it's it is come up in the form of some some close calls there but it'll be hard i defer to the lawyers in the crowd and others in terms international all on the basis for us staying there other than r.c.t. rich we went there for all the righteous reasons but if the russians play that card we may want to stay and have no. ability to do it they could play out here in the us martin jay says several more people are coming round to the idea that america's presence and say we have violates international law. it's interesting that senior military officials are now sort of going renegade beginning to. show some disenchantment with donald trump policy in the actually legal basis of america
being in syria is a very shaky one it's based on u.n. rules that were adopted in two thousand and five which argued in theory that she didn't necessarily need the u.n. security council agreement to engage yourself in military activity in another sovereign states to prevent what could be. harm or a war situation and i think the europeans particularly are conscious of. the legal basis for america to be in syria. is really not very valid at all. humanitarian groups are concerned about the possible cost effective for another i saw stronghold the iraqi city of mossel was three taken that i have a prize with scores of civilians injured and killed the operation lasted longer than the battle for stalingrad at the end the city has been left totally devastated it was spoke to rise out from u.k.
based charity muslim eight and seven is it at ma so when describe what you saw. what i saw was just. i mean it was indescribable it was like a movie set it's completely obliterated the whole city is ruined. you know those cars that have been completely obliterated it was like you know i've said this to other people it's like a movie set it was just crazy nothing like i expected next even though i had seen the movie. pictures before. it's different when you're there because what you can't seen in photos is just smell. you know it i was in a school where which had not been cleared yet. there were still bodies underneath the rubble. and i asked my colleagues i said you know what is that smell and they said it's you know people have died here and they've not been cleared so there's
basically the smell of death and small and sewage and it adds to the whole atmosphere of the whole city being ruined all the buildings are destroyed i don't think i saw one clearly standing building it's it's just the entire city is gone it's going to take a long time to to get back to what it was. they were living in very difficult conditions they. were very restricted in what they would could and could not do. you know they that they were very restricted in terms of access to food you know obviously mostly made as a humanitarian organization so our primary concern is humanitarian situation and so when asking the question it was mainly at you know along the lines of what they need. and they were all very malnutrition because you know under occupation they were not able to access that michoud or water even medical care you know everything that the prices of everything shot up so you would see people having to you know
sell everything they own just to get you know some sugar or rice. interpol has released a list of one hundred seventy three islamic state fighters that could be preparing to carry out suicide bombings and you were their mission is to inflict revenge for a recent ice of defeats and the middle east according to the guardian the list includes each suspect detailing their name i saw recruitment date last address home mosque and mother's name and in some cases photographs it's not just a suspect on this list have already entered you or many others have in the past.
just run. when i spoke with managing editor of the durand dot com madam garry and he thinks many of their recruits son interpol's new list are originally from europe and will have no problem finding their way back. many of the isis so-called isis fighters from europe as i said the serbian problems the opium pipe so again problems of possible need tokyo has become a massive good teaching ground. so there you are. and then the police you go people from all over the rush to judgment in central and western europe who have gone to syria and iraq. they're coming back to the final but the journey is quite easy so i
would say you. know group these people or people but did you work before possibly for the false majority of the logs. with the number of migrants arriving in that city growing by the day a group defends europe was trying to stem the flow sailing ship to the region in a bid to turn back migrant boats coming from africa the castle will be based in the sicilian port of tanya and they will be patrolling the mediterranean off the coast of libya the missions as they once to expose humanitarian groups that it claims are working directly with people smugglers the activists accuse them of actively providing migrants with a taxi service direct to europe the group has bankrolling the mission was money raised through crowd funding so far they've received more than one hundred twenty six thousand dollars for the missions been accused of being racist by some pro
refugee activists have stage a rally at the port of krypton ia decrying the patch rolls patrols the activists were holding banners reading normal drowning and freedom not from tax well that's a reference to europe's borders agency this is news to me or has branded europe initiative a provocation or to. challenge to one of the group's members and also gather its reaction from locals. we're at the port of in sicily among the ships that come into the sport you will every now and then see boats full of migrants but we are here to talk to an activist who is expecting the arrival of a very different kind of boat with a very controversial purpose. so somewhere around here will probably arrive by next week. what we cherish of course is
a cultural identity are you a racist or an extremist organization your final purpose is what. we want to ensure that your roof stays in europe this is what some people call racism. i think the european union should feel ashamed now they want to use sicily as a rallying point for disgusting racism that does not belong to our culture i know that our welcoming culture is disliked by european sashes but we won't give up we are not going to be silent in the face of this call to violence against desperate human beings and these peoples need to buy history books we're not trying to provoke a situation where anybody's life is at risk so you're not attacking them i know we're not attacking migrants we're not going to attack the n.g.o.s we would just try to document what they're doing and we want to make sure that these n.g.o.s are not working as some kind of proxy for the human traffickers what happens if you see
that someone's life is in danger we will also come and rescue them really and what are you going to do when a refugee on your boat well we will try to bring them to africa again. people of sicily have gotten used to migrants to the many n.g.o.s that have come here to help but an anti migrant ngo patrolling the mediterranean that is something most people here have never heard of so. let's ask the locals about the concept what do you think of the n.g.o.s that are working in the mediterranean to help the migrants. the bits that i don't like what we're doing what if this is right twinging and geo both doesn't sound good this is the boat. the right wing activists will be on this boat they will be patrolling the mediterranean to make sure that there is no illegal migration and to make sure that the n.g.o.s don't break the laws what do you think about that good job like that it's good and the opinion of
the migrants. they don't want migrants here i mean. if they don't one migrants i mean they have to be out the make of. these instability in libya they say if they rescue migrants from the boats they will take them back to africa that this is that is what they want how can someone just live i mean up to the middle of militancy you know take the bus to africa that's the face i mean some people call them racists do you agree with that there's no racist but story there's already too many people here. so there's no room for everyone do you think that's racist i don't think so and i'm not against helping migrants but we should help them in their own country so here's a scene that seems to have become typical for sicily we've got a park where we can see the migrants then and geo group to help them and also their locals who are still feeling the burden of the economic crisis and don't want
migrants in their hometown and all of them are in one same park not too long before right wing activists join the club the trend toward tea could tiny. piece a thousand people have taking to the streets in a town in the north and sabbaths of paris the protesters for engine landing justice for a young man who died a year ago while in police custody initially please. officials claimed the man had died of a heart attack saying it was under the influence of alcohol and drugs whether rumors from the substance of the second autopsy which we feel that he had died from asphyxiation of a cover up and the family's fight for justice led to the case being transferred to paris. the media's been obsessing over the looks mannerism of donald trump as the billionaire businessman made his bed for
the white house but how important style over substance are these jacksonville that has been trying to find out. america's commander in chief is meant to be a representation of the country as a whole and its values and what does america project self on if not diversity we believe our diversity our differences when joined together by a common set of ideals makes a strong americans are a diverse people with respect and concern for every single human being in this country and being very different from previous u.s. presidents donald trump seems to know what it's like to be the outcast his everyday guy in your face persona is one of the things that got him elected i think by shingo greatest passion of any assets i have is by temperament oh god does my job. i think i'm much more humble than you would understand. you call women you don't like that higgs your twitter account only roulette you know dawdle. but it's also
what he's attacked for by some of his detractors recently we've seen the media become preoccupied with trump's personal habits some choose to dissect his food choices slamming him for his love of red meat exotic meals fast food you name it it's true he's not like obama who reportedly only eats seven lightly salted almonds for a night snack others criticize the president's lack of obvious exercise dubbing him the least athletic president in u.s. history. well maybe a more athletic build is the key to being popular and a few outlets have gone as far as to warn that trump's unique and often unscripted style of speech may be an indicator of mental health issues many fell in love with obama because he was seen as a cool hip guy. which apparently is not the case with mr trump and that could be hurting him more than he
knows because according to a recent poll that's how his predecessor scored high in approval ratings and that same poll shows that sixty five percent of those who disapprove of trump do so because of his personality this is a cultural issue they want a full strum. and jogging because he represents in that sense the other side of the cultural differences and i said so it looks like america's champions of diversity disapprove of trump despite him being the man who arguably has made the presidency more diverse perhaps a few more hip trappings could help but probably not just washington d.c. we asked legal and media analyst lynell why people who claim to be in favor of diversity are bashing one of the most colorful presidents and u.s. history. the biggest con in the world is that what people call the liberals and they're not liberals they have no belief system they have no platform
they have no ideology no truth no future no nothing these are the people who supposedly are liberal they're the ones who are calling for war with syria why because who ever was against trump they were for you just say i hate trump and you're in jail deal with any other problem you have i hate trump but i'm not crazy about. transgender migration bathroom oh ok will do i hate but i'm not sure about women's rights are ok won't bother them. more news coming up and thirty minutes time to stay with us.
i do think that archie is propaganda arm of the russian government and helps to spread. information that helps advance russia's interest and so that's why i think it's important for people like me to come on if it were me would be somebody who was less capable who had maybe not do as good a job presenting the american point of view.
this is where they pierced america's heart on the eleventh of september two thousand and one fifteen years after the attacks new york is celebrating its heroes the military. parade to on a one point five million troops the saviors of freedom every eleventh of november this parade honors generations of troops from the fallen of world war one to those returning from iraq or afghanistan their replacements are waiting the young generation the future of the world's most.
