mimus but in a fragile state she often cries she says that she's often a lot of pain from any injuries or trying to describe the ordeal that this particular little girl's been going through. the phone call to that very same shelter the voice on the other end says another girl has just been brought in from mosul. but it could be too early to talk for her any question and the girl may break down. in this psychological state she's struggling to answer a question as simple as what's your name got to be as. i. just anybody else that. this is that. it's clear mariam is lucky to be alive there are scars right on her face surviving this head injury as almost

a miracle. surrounded by other kids in caring shelter workers mariam gradually got to the point when she began talking believe it or not mariam gets least stressed out when she speaks of her once over just to kill the governor the chill button that. it took oakley for. a school killing you. but it is crucial that. it seems the lucky escape happened shortly after that dreadful experience but here's mariam describing what happened just before she found herself at the epicenter of the war. that each just. snip you just don't do that it will. do it over no need a lot mariam is not the only girl who has told us about the horrors by some river that's apparently where many children lost their mothers.
1:04 am
a moment to see just. the elite. schools the mom when you're only a mom or dad each kid what kind of other horrendous things these people went through somewhere by the river in mosul we can only guess mariam doesn't remember anything more or just can't talk about it we ask about her father but she can barely see a thing. of us from below you. will . get there is a glimmer of hope that she can grow up in peace and reunite with her family grandparents. would be a good wash does it bothers.

a mom i knew will never learn mom or your d.h. . in the city or the. thing is important. things was. easier than it is for. us so it's. a fact that gap that. i feel might get just a bob was going to. punish his. hundreds of people have lit candles demonstrating against violence and hate in

charlottesville in the u.s. state of virginia clashes broke out there and suffer the aging of the removal of a statue of a confederate general authorities are removing confederate monuments now across the country and scope the latest. here outside of st john's episcopal church in brooklyn there was a monument commemorating confederate general robert e. lee it was affixed to this maple tree and it was here for over one hundred years now in light of the violence in charlottesville related to a statue of robert e. lee it's been removed all across the country activists are demanding that symbols honoring a related to slavery or honoring the people who fought for it be taken down perhaps this is sensible after all slavery is a barbaric practice millions of people died coming to the united states millions more worked to death on plantations however getting rid of the symbols related to slavery might not be as easy as it sounds.
1:08 am
this is new york city's madison avenue it's named after u.s. president james madison now james madison owned over one hundred slaves and in his personal letters he said some pretty reprehensible things about black people do you feel like there's a little hypocrisy that we're changing things in the south but not changing things here absolutely which changes every way i think it would represent you know a troubled past because there's a difference between honoring history and recognizing that we shouldn't repeat it should they stop madison avenue. and rename it. i think it's fine if one person is the football that will be by the city you'd be a good idea to take it to these should be. but i think a lot of people in the south do want to take the statues down it's not just people in the north that are trying to take down. now we're here in thomas jefferson. our thomas jefferson was the ideological founder of the american republic and he was also
1:09 am
a slave owner not only did jefferson own hundreds of slaves he actually impregnated one of them there's a number of african-americans living today who can trace their genealogy back to thomas jefferson and one of his slaves sally hemings before him having slaves he was a. poet changes they very shouldn't be this even slaves right now in this they have heard of them but. that's not the way to talk it out. get out lay and try to kill the show. the first president of the united states george washington started owning slaves when he was just eleven years old by the time of his death he had over three hundred even signed into law the infamous fugitive slave act which allowed slave owners to track down escapees all over the country think anything that's owned by a slave owner should be changed yeah it should be because this is times two thousand and definitely they've had enough time to do it while washington didn't go
1:10 am
to war to defend slavery and i think consequence is very important in these tough situations george washington's faces on the one dollar bill he's often referred to as the father of our country slavery didn't just exist in the south it existed all across the united states getting rid of everything related to slavery opens up an interesting can of worms might not be as easy as some people seem to think mop and artsy new york want to power the tool this morning time online there's a fervent to it's a campaign to name the charlotte protest as moral. the cable publishing blacklist of your opponents may very well violate personal privacy and could just ruin lives however both sides are willing to play. who are the people interested in protesting during trump's inauguration the us justice department wants to go demanding that dream host a web service provider release all the information of the users who visited
1:11 am
a website launched by the organizers of the demonstration and that's roughly one point three million users now the web host is trying to fight back in essence the search warrant only aims to identify the political dissidents of the current administration but it seems to identify and understand what concerns each of these dissidents viewed on the website. most recently targeted in charlottesville last weekend twitter users embark on a mission to identify and shamed those who attended the infamous united the right rally the twitter account called yes your racist has even been posting i.d.'s of the marchers their communities need and need to know who these people are and what they're trying to do to our nation while there is no defending the violence of neo nazis in charlottesville the amateur investigators search for racist seems to have missed by kyle quinn a professor from arkansas was falsely identified as a right wing charlot school demonstrator the man runs
1:12 am
a lab doing medical research and has nothing to do with white supremacists however he received scores of hate messages after his address was posted online you have celebrities and hundreds of people doing no research online not checking facts i've dedicated my life to helping old people trying to improve health care and train the next generation of scientists and this is potentially throwing a wrench in that the founder of the yes your racist twitter page says that despite the chances of innocence being caught in his net he's willing to take the risk but the search for personal data of those who disagree with you smells like a witch hunt i can see where it could be. blanket intimidation against everybody protesting if this caught on and you know right we started publicizing the names and left we knew it would produce a lot of people publicizing the names of raving people who participate. so it could be a backfire on whoever tries to do it because it could start becoming the thing to
1:13 am
do and that's the double edged sword of the social media that you know you can use it to organize but you can also use it to shame embarrass or intimidate. thanks this morning south korea may send a special envoy to pyongyang if the north stops its missile and nuclear tests meantime though the u.s. is taking a much harder line on the crisis on the peninsula. as president has made clear the era of strategic patience is over with regard to north korea all options are on the table in the united states will continue to bring the full range of american power economic and diplomatic until north korea abandon its nuclear and ballistic missile programs those comments coming despite the fact that north korea earlier said it would hold off on strikes called pyongyang's decision very wise. next looks at how american policy seems to go against what the rest the international community is pushing for right now. when it comes to foreign policy it seems that trump is
1:14 am
trying to twist the knife into some of the most balto international issues there's fire and fury for north korea while the international community is calling for deescalation in the region trying to spouting some of the most aggressive rhetoric that's been heard. and this man will not get away with what he's doing only they will be met with fire and fury. like the world has never see. the escalation breath reeks certainly doesn't solve the problem the solution to these cries this must be political the potential consequences of military action to rethink to even contemplate the two thousand and fifteen iranian nuclear deal and agreement that took years to reach and one that was hailed as a landmark diplomatic treatment this is a historic day. in response to washington's threats of more sanctions to promise so that they can pull out of that
1:15 am
deal all together but america's u.n. ambassador doesn't appear all that concerned iran cannot be allowed to use the nuclear deal to hold the world hostage the nuclear deal must not become too big to fail and then there is venezuela a country divided after months of violent protests and the run up to a key election. help bring an end to that trumps in just meeting fire with fire apparently the white house wants to kill a divided society and political scene with more violence we have troops all over the world in places that are very very far away venezuela is not very far away and the people are suffering and dying we have many options for venezuela including a possible military option if necessary whatever happened in terms promises of
1:16 am
making the world a less nasty place to live i would love to be able to get along with everybody right now the world is a mess but i think by the time we finish i think it's going to be a lot better place to live for now it seems the president has zero intentions of making friends with everyone. r. t. washington d.c. . the most clued in germany's chancellor gearing up to close those upcoming elections. though she's still taking it pretty easy on the campaign trail. but she's been talking to. mainstream media examine why that may be among the rest of the news but head.
1:17 am
what politicians do. they put themselves on the line to get accept the reject. so when you want to be president and you. want to be that's. actually going to be for us this is what will befall three of them can't be good. i'm interested always in the water. question.
1:18 am
welcome back so same for the great german chancellor seems to be taking the easy road back on the election trial at least at the moment put off facing a rival's on live t.v. by rejecting the terms of what they're asking for on those stations instead she's been chatting to bloggers on you tube look so why she might be taking the soft option that. engler merkel should be feeling energized and a fresh after her three week break in the italian alps but judging from her latest election campaigning looks like she's still in vacation mode the chancellor spent time talking politics with several young celebrities here in germany one of them is a video blogger that specializes in german izing american pop hits another is a lifestyle blog where the shares her experiences and ventures with her viewers oh and there's also a fashion and beauty blogger. says
1:19 am
. this is. us and this is me in a quite nice outfit there protects my skin and how these beauty and tech bloggers were chosen to speak to merkel at the height of her campaign we don't know but hot political topics were brought up and the chancellor was cool calm and collected in her answers for. are there any plans for electric cars. we need to create infrastructure which will motivate people to use electric vehicles many people are currently afraid they will be able to get to work but won't be able to get back home unless what is your favorite smiley the smiley with the small hard on that he was surprised that i impute to blogger was chosen to conduct an interview with you many have said that my subscribers are not smart
1:20 am
enough to ask the right question. because it seems silly to me that some consider people from the beauty industry unable to make the right decision in the elections this is a everyone is able to. tell us honestly when you read donald trump's tweet phrases like locked and loaded what do you think about what comes into your head top of the story we should generally be careful with languages. language is often a step towards escalation and violence i stand by all means against this. younger audience is one of the prime targets of the political machines in most democracies today so i'm concerned about the fact that america has targeted because i think that means that she sees them as a soft voter group and i would hope that the professional journalists in germany corridor to the test and catcher in a situation where she cannot escape the question so her sailing for angela merkel
1:21 am
there but it certainly won't be so easy when she faces off her main rival martin schulte in september. for everybody it should be clear what it means when the central government when the headquarters of a governing party systematically decide through the debate on the country's future when a party comes and says we do not have anything to do with this and we do not debate this journey election campaigns that's and it is the arrogance of power nothing else the ladies and gentlemen in us. german broadcasters want to redesign of the bait so there's more room for spontaneity allowing the two politicians to challenge each other more america's team reportedly threatened to council so the broadcasters gave up there were forty five minutes provided for each block of the t.v. program the aim was a clear structure with more room for spontaneity and depth the chancellor's representatives did not agree with such dramatic changes and refused to participate under these conditions with campaigning in germany stepping up
1:22 am
a gear before the election angle america seems to be making sure she's in the try thing seat and the r t. israel still denying travel permits for besieged palestinians trying to leave gaza for medical treatment one of them is twenty year old. he's got a life threatening heart condition and or vote he's had several operations he desperately needs another his family has been trying for months now to try to get a travel permit but he's being turned away every time that guy and his family have been speaking exclusively to us. my sickness is tightness in the aortic valve it's a chronic disease and a congenital defect the referral procedure is very important because i must leave to have open heart surgery and replace the defective valve i think clyde since february and my last refusal was yesterday and this is a problem because i need to travel and there is no alternative there is ninety
1:23 am
percent need for me to travel more than anyone and if i don't travel my heart will get weaker and a heart attack and then death. doesn't let helen from february and till now we've applied monthly to get his permit he was supposed to have his surgery in february his muscle has to stay strong if it weakens he will be in serious condition he will not be able to have any surgery after that we ask allah to help us what more can i say it seems that my son's case is still pending so if we collect all the necessary documents and say that his case is extremely urgent they still not allow him to though they don't even read his papers it's only to make things more difficult that is what we discovered. so that the issue of how do you feel to see your son sick and in need of something and you can do anything about it no matter how much i try to explain the psychological pressure i face every day i can't express it because it's inside it's not something i can express clearly and the only the one who's
1:24 am
sick can really explain it especially when you find yourself helpless and can't do anything no arab or israeli crossing point open. i've been through a lot and i'm so depressed next year my friends will graduate and still have two more years to finish college so i will spend six years instead of four in college this matter alone depresses me greatly of course i've been depressed ever since i got sick but i got used to it but then i become more depressed when i ask why this is happening to me and is there a solution if not what will happen to me and what can i do these questions pass through my head every day and this is devastating me psychologically even more so i just stop caring and started to live my life. the world health organization says nearly two thousand palestinians applied for travel permits in june alone almost half were delayed with no explanation more than two hundred of those appear to be children as well many who needed to travel with the patient had their applications
1:25 am
delayed or denied that resulted then in canceling treatment or examinations again a directive for physicians for human rights in israel told us the authorities are essentially signing death warrants. political tension between the palestinian authority hamas and israel very reason rise in the number of requests that are being delayed or completely not allowed it's a mix of the rock receives security and political considerations israel by not allowing them to have the old elaine the answer to their request actually sentenced them to none treatment and in diseases like cancer every days and every week and that the person is missing especially one can be a death sentence for them this is also an israeli responsibility what is going on with the curfew on gaza that is more than
1:26 am
a decade already and how it influences the level of the health services that is available within the gaza strip he said i can tell you the interest of fair and fair and balanced we've been in contact with both the israeli defense forces and the foreign ministry for their comments we've not heard anything but yet when we do we'll let you know what they're going to say about it. so much more though from a sorority dot com check of our society for a while back in half an hour the next live update here on our programs continue after this quick break. thank you. i was. i. being. set up here very startled by.
1:27 am
the pharmaceutical industry the medical insurance industry and the bankers they are profiting from the american holocaust and the american economy is now so dependent on the revenue from the american dollar cost that it's very difficult to understand how this train of death is these freight train these box cars and death is going to . haunt dogs may not only be tasty but
1:28 am
also dead to the ship between kids sure it was proved suggested no proof and a fairly strong one there were two thousand out some involved in the study it's a very extensive study done by a well respected scientist. do chemicals that down the advertising. really increase the risk of cancer and i chose a means of known to infuse damage in the last test is it a shared skepticism they do not believe that this is is true by independent scientists so did the need industry paid you for this i received some compensation for my time as was the others why is that in the meta lobby definitely didn't like what we've been doing and if you want to learn more you'll get a definite on the outflow you only hear. back.
