7:04 am
the mom when you're only a small mortgage and 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 but only. those who do. get there is a glimmer of hope that she can grow up in peace and reunite with her family grandparents. the quote good good. you bobs. mooch. off the top of the. iliad to tranquil our teeth. but if you do have any information about merriam or

even lists all of. this was. good news for. us so it's. expected that. i don't like it just. to. finish page. now thousands of people have to try candlelit vigil in charlottesville in the u.s. state of virginia they gathered to condemn violence and hate for a woman died opposing a white supremacist rally on saturday two state troopers ruled for remembered they
7:07 am
died in a helicopter crash while i'm wondering the rest of the wave of violence started with a protest over the removal of a statue of the confederate general authorities are taking down similar monuments across the country citing security reasons although many and i'm monks in the u.s. selling to controversial personalities from the civil war era that many people are reluctant to condemn them. as the story. 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
7:08 am
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. 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 if he represents you know a troubled past or because there's a difference between honoring history and recognizing that we shouldn't repeat it. should they stop madison avenue. and rename it yeah i think it's fine so if one person does affect people there will be by the city you'd be a good idea to take it to the it should be a democratic 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
7:09 am
thomas jefferson park thomas jefferson was the ideological founder of the american republic and he was also 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 youngster changes play very shouldn't be this even slaves right now and does they have heard of them. on the way still get out. get out by 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
7:10 am
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 definitely they've had enough time to do it while washington didn't go to war to defend slavery and i think concerts 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 caleb oppen artsy new york we want to us near not. the website has been taken down by russia's communications regulator after it was registered with the dr rue de maine the move comes less than a day after the site called the daily storm which registered it was earlier rejected by a us based web host after it published
7:11 am
a controversial article on the charlottesville protest victim it also tried to join google hosting but was blocked there to date the stormers social media accounts have also been taken down. now the hunt is underway for activists on both sides online there's a fervent twitter campaign to name a charlottesville protesters while the u.s. justice department is caring for people who visited a website used to organize protests during donald trump's inauguration is artie's samir a car. the gable probably think blacklist of your opponents may very well violate personal privacy and could just ruin lives however both sides are willing. 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 releases all the information of users who visited a website launched by the organizers of the demonstration and that's roughly one
7:12 am
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 content 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 here 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 a lab doing medical research and has nothing to do with white supremacists however
7:13 am
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 with mrs 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 so i can see where it could. become. a blanket intimidation against everybody protesting if this caught on in the you know right wing group started publicizing the names of left wing people who participate leftwing people publicize in the names of raping people who participate. so it could be a backfire on whoever tries to do it because it could start becoming the thing to do and that that's the double edged sword of the social media that you know you can
7:14 am
use it to organize but you can also use it to shame embarrass or intimidate. south korea says it may send a special envoy to pyongyang if the north stops its missile and nuclear tests although the u.s. has taken a much harder line. 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 well those comments said to come despite the fact that north korea earliest said it would hold off on strikes and donald trump called killing yang's decision very wise and it's not how american policy does seem to go against the international community and what the international community is pushing for right now. when it comes to foreign
7:15 am
policy it seems that trump is trying to twist the knife into some of the most volatile 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 in depth. and this man will not get away with what he's doing believe they will be met with fire and fury. like the world has never see kind of example so the escalation in brest break suddenly doesn't solve the problem the solution to this crisis must be political the potential consequences of military action to rethink to even contemplate. the two thousand and fifteen iranian nuclear deal and a group that took years to reach and one that was hailed as a landmark diplomatic treatment this is a historic day. in response to
7:16 am
washington's threats of more sanctions to promise so that they could pull out of that deal altogether 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. tell bring an end to that trumps and 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
7:17 am
a possible military option if necessary whatever happened in terms promises of 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. our team washington d.c. . pledged to races defense spending to me to us back it is causing a pretty rift in germany at the moment we'll have the details after the break. every the world.

7:19 am
again without a knife germany's foreign minister has decried the amount of money his country spends on night germany must remain a peacemaker a not become an machine the blunders toggle actions are to oppose the militarization of foreign policy by donald trump and not submit to it as to my horror the c.d.u. and f.t.p. plan to do. discuss this issue a bit further when i joined by emily say he's in the in for us. gabrielle's message there does seem to go against merkel's policy doesn't it. well andrew as you heard just there the foreign minister saying that gabriel made it very clear that germany must not dance to trump's tune when it comes to the country's defense spending and what he said actually is quite the opposite of what the chancellor angela merkel has been saying she's been in support of raising the country's military spending towards nato to two percent of the country's g.d.p.
7:20 am
by the year twenty twenty four take a listen to exactly how she put it in the past but germany's far from the target of spending two percent of the national budget on the fans but it's very important that this year we increase that to one point two percent and wish to also place importance on defense in the future. in fact gabriel's party is one of the main rivals to merkel's christian democrats party in next month's election and want defense spending is one of the most pressing issues here in germany so far merkel has been avoiding this in the run up to the vote and it's not just defense spending looks like merkel has been avoiding other thorny issues as well as she chose to speak to tech and beauty bloggers at the height of her campaign take a look at this package off out earlier. angler merkel should be feeling energized any fresh after her three week break in the italian alps but judging from her
7:21 am
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. ok. this is. us and this is me in a quite nice outfit that protects my skin. 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 in the chancellor was cool calm and collected in her answers for how are there any plans for electric cars so. we need to create infrastructure people to use electric vehicles many people are

currently free they will be able to get to work before be able to get back home. and that's what is your favorite smiley smile with a small heart on it. people was surprised that i a beauty blogger was chosen to conduct an interview with you many have said that my subscribers are not smart enough to ask the right questions for this cause me think of them is it seems silly to me that some consider people from the beauty industry i'm able to make the right decision in the election this is absurd everyone is able to. telus honestly when you read donald trump's tweet with phrases like locked and loaded what do you think about it what comes into your head up at the thought we should generally be careful with language of language is often a step towards ask question of violence i stand by all means against that. instead of meeting with the legitimate media with people who are trained to detect when the politicians are playing games shows that mirco has
7:23 am
a group of amateurs with whom she can play and that's what's happening here it reminds me. of a prize fighter who is afraid to meet a real challenger it is the softest question and answer approach that she could face it is the i deal for a politician who wants to be a. smooth sailing for angela merkel there but it certainly won't be so easy when she pays off her main rival martin schultes in september you need them for everybody it should be clear what it means when a central government when the headquarters of a governing party systematically decide to reject 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 during the election campaign and it is the arrogance of power nothing else the ladies and gents in our. 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 cancel so the broadcasters gave
7:24 am
up there were forty five minutes provided for each block of the t.v. programme the chancellor's representatives did not agree with such dramatic changes and refused to participate under these conditions with campaigning in germany stepping up a gear before the election angle america seems to be making sure she's in the try thing seat and the party. well meanwhile the german chancellor is refugee policy is under intense scrutiny once again a syrian refugee being tried in germany for alleged. war crimes the suspected former commander of the free syrian army is accused of torturing civilians in the city of aleppo local media reports that he was arrested after one of his alleged victims recognized him in the street because france's sensi argo has the story. the forty two year old was arrested in april last year and is accused of abducting and torturing civilians in aleppo he allegedly led a militia group of one hundred fifty men links to the free syrian army considered

one of the so-called moderates in the west is a very comfortable to use for the narrative. syrian army used you're a good. boy. we've. been saying by the beginning these are good guys on the opposition to the more they're being hijacked by by by terrorist by jihad it is interesting the enough it appears the suspect came to germany as a refugee but was caught after he was recognized by a man he allegedly tortured and here are some of the answers he put down in his refugee application do you have no knowledge about war crimes committed in syria or crimes against humanity in particular about fide has taken civilians the perpetrators who commit these crimes or syrian regime and terrorists from isis as
7:26 am
an alleged rebel commander who is now being prosecuted for torture is the answer seem quite well expected and this baffling story by the way has barely been touched by the mainstream media among the few mentions it's had in germany it seems the coverage is making sure no one things badly of the free syrian army of course they're not the bad guys just good willed rebels according to the findings of the federal prosecutor's office his troops pursued primarily self-serving interests while. writing about it why it's not top news because he. shouldn't so i. wouldn't go well with your question narrative who is responsible for all these people who came in on monday. i mean. the verdict in this case is expected in
