10:08 pm
nusra and rebels and the black here by isis so far it 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 destroy the syrian people. iran continues to support terrorism including palestinian terrorists and also. has is a terrorist organization and they are currently. cross international law. in fighting in another country over it's in no way trying to
10:09 pm
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. and 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 they were supported by western countries by the united states by
10:10 pm
saudi arabia and also by israel. so why is hezbollah being more brazen in syria all of a sudden raising the flag. 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 a 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 were
10:11 pm
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 our c.t. writ 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 played out and less martin jane says ever more people are coming round to the idea that america's presence in say rock violates center national. it's interesting that senior military officials are now sort of going to beginning to. show some disenchantment with donald trump policy loose 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 you
10:12 pm
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 that the legal basis for america to be in syria. is really not very valid it's all. humanitarian groups are concerned about the possible cost of victory in iraq after another i saw a stronghold in iraq of thirty of masala was taking and i have the price with scores of civilians injured and killed the operation lasted longer than the battle of her stalingrad now at the end the city has been left totally devastated it was told to medea ross out from u.k. based charity a muslim mate and she visited moscow and described what she saw. what
10:13 pm
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 smoke and sewage and it adds to the whole atmosphere of the whole city being ruined all the buildings are destroyed i don't
10:14 pm
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 misdemeanors 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 to establish food or water or even medical care you know everything to the prices of everything shot up so you would see people having to you know sell everything they own just to get you know sugar or rice.
10:15 pm
interpol has released a list of one hundred seventy three islamic fighters that could be preparing to carry out suicide bombings in europe their mission at start is to inflict revenge for risks and i saw defeat in the middle east according to the guardian the list includes a profit of each suspect detailing their name i saw recruitment last address whole mosque in mother's name and in some cases photographs it's not just of the suspect on this list have already entered europe but many others have in the past.
10:16 pm
their worship to the street there was blood everywhere they were shooting. everybody alike was running and screaming and i didn't know what happened so we just run.
10:17 pm
when spoke with managing editor of the durand dot com adam gary a man he thinks many of the recruits on interpol's new list are origin and they from europe and will have no problem finding their way back. many of the choices for so-called isis fighters are from europe as i said the serbian problems he occupied so being problems of calls of only tokyo has become a massive victory to. in the whole of southern europe. and then of course you've got people from all over the rest of the central and western europe who have gone to syria and iraq and to be. coming back to the fighting but the journey is quite easy so i would say a substantial number of these people or people who lived in europe before possibly

for the vast majority of the logs when the number of migrants arriving in that city growing by the day a group defend you were trying to stem the flow sailing the ship to the region in a bid to turn back margaret boats coming from africa the vessel will be based on this is silly and port and will be protruding the mediterranean off the coast of libya the missions as one story expose humanitarian groups that it claims are working directly with people smugglers the activists accuse them of effectively providing migrants with a taxi service direct to europe. europe is bankrolling the mission with money raised through crowd funding so far they've received more than one hundred twenty six thousand dollars however the mission's been accused of being racist by some girl refugee activists have stage a rally at the port of qahtani and decrying trolls the activists who are holding
10:19 pm
banners reading no more drowning and freedom not on tax that's a reference to europe's border agency the city's mayor has a brand to defend. provocation trinkle challenge to one of the group's members and also gather reaction from the 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. probably 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.
10:20 pm
we want to ensure that europe 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 people who 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 are not attacking the migrants we are not going to attack the n.g.o.s we will just try to document what they are 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 and what are you going to do one a refugee ends up on your boat well we will try to bring them to africa again.
10:21 pm
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 moon is this a bit of i don't like doing what if this is right twinning 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 ngos 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 to
10:22 pm
make a piece in the sense that they say if they rescue migrants from the boat they will take them back to africa that this is that is what going on how can someone who has lived i mean the middle of militancy you know take them back to africa that's the thing i mean some people call them racists do you agree with that there's no racist but thore there's already too many people here yet. so there's no room for everyone or 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 but also there are locals who are still feeling the burden of the economic crisis and don't want migrants in their hometown all of them all in one same part. before right wing activists join the. drawing board t.
10:23 pm
. at least a thousand people have taking to the streets in a town of the north and south of paris protesters were demanding justice for a young man who died a year ago while in police custody initially police officials claimed the man had died of a heart attack saying he was under the influence of alcohol and drugs work for his relatives insisted on a second autopsy which revealed he had died from those things elevations of a cover up and their families following for justice to the case being transferred to paris court. the media has been obsessing over the look style and mannerism of donald trump avarice since the billionaire businessman made his bed for the white house but how important is style over substance while artist graham has been trying to find out. america's commander in chief is meant to be
10:24 pm
a representation of the country as a whole and its values and what does america pride itself 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 single greatest passion of any assets i have is fight temperament oh i just i just . think i'm much more humble that you would understand. you cold when you don't like that higgs your twitter account really really that you know donald. 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
10:25 pm
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
10:26 pm
because of his personality this is a cultural issue they want to force trump into. and jogging because he represents in that sense the other side of the cultural diversity that i see 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. washington d.c. where ask legal and media analysts lynell why people who claim to be in favor of diversity have passing one of the most colorful presidents in 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 was syria why

10:28 pm
and in the spiral not. many lives have been broken believe excessive to the banks got you into trouble on the way big bankers go big. or go on the banks but just didn't think of. the last morning through the back under don't buy creditors people see no future bad face for how you become ill you turn to job your relationship breaks down you become a casualty is dead on lifelong trouble or is there a way out of those are sure to come to a bit of know would want to ditch bill for. a few more. you can revolt against the dictator but what about the day after i think we as
10:29 pm
libyan people did not give much thought about that and so the way the old fashioned off the resolution does not build nations. and certainly does not build states. all. hello and welcome to worlds apart the russians have long taken americans more seriously than the americans took that is until the russia gave the american obsession with their logic the election hacking and the ensuing paul.
