5:03 pm
groups and we don't buy into that but still that comes as a surprise because the u.n. special envoy to syria says that the estimated ten thousand al nusra fighters in the area are indeed capable of utilizing chemical weapons the issue of avoiding the book thing joe use of chemical weapons if indeed crucial and would be totally unacceptable we all are aware that both the government and have that capability to produce weaponized glory. and with regard to the syrian government's chemical weapon capabilities level of question how they could even exist at all citing the fact that the u.s. u.k. and france had overseen their destruction just last year and the syrian foreign minister also said that the west's aggression comes from dissatisfaction with the direction in which political tides are flowing in the country. and you see in the
5:04 pm
u.s. the u.k. and france are not satisfied with developments on the ground therefore they make every possible attempt to impede progress in the political process in particular they are trying to protect on this are insurgents and they want the crisis in our country to continue. all sides of the conflict are aware that this is a critical point in syria it's the last pocket of terrorist resistance and russia is warning that they will try to stage a chemical attack in a final attempt to gain support from the west and perhaps gain a foothold once more in the country damascus and moscow they've already put forward efforts towards peace but the islamic groups have made it abundantly clear they will not surrender and with a zero sum game mindset it's hard to see why the most hard line terrorists in syria won't use every tool at their disposal to change the tide of war former pentagon

official michael maloof says a false flag attack in syria shouldn't be able doubt. the united states doesn't believe that the rebels have that capability whereas there is tremendous documentation to show that they do have the capability they've probably been storing it for months if not years in the province and they have used it in the past they have that capability and it is a last ditch hold for them so it cannot be ruled out and it's not it's not beyond the realm of possibility that the u.s. is trying to get assad out they're going to continue trying and and even though donald trump wants to. get the u.s. out of syria there are elements within the u.s. government that don't want that to happen meanwhile the syrian foreign minister has revealed that the controversial group the white home that's has reportedly kidnapped forty four children damascus has suggested the youngsters might be used

5:10 pm
the people of france we are in twenty eighteen a d. there are many on yielding goals who are attached to social progress who still fight against regression it is inadmissible to hear the president of the republic caricature and despise the french from abroad while many french everyday citizens also felt the hum from those comments from president michel unhappy that yet again while he's abroad he's chosen a venue outside forces to criticize what he sees as being the french resistance to his reforms but what many people thought as being a jibe of contempt for the french people let's not how president michael saw it in a press conference on thursday he defended his comments saying that he told the truth and he said that while people in france don't like permanent adjustments we are a country when in serious moments of our history we can be transformed or present maicon had been praising in denmark the danish system which means that it's easier
5:11 pm
to fire people from a job and it also means people quit their jobs can have a social security as a bit of a buoyancy eight and those are things that he says that he wants to emulate a in france with his reforms were forms which over the last year and a half have seen roof resistance over and over with many protests of people coming out to the streets to say they don't want my calls for foreigners to proceed. was. yet again president micro now has provoked fierce street. action with his comments at home while he's made them abroad and many people just can't simply believe the core
5:12 pm
of the president. a swedish problem entry candidate has claimed he was attacked by a migrant during an alternative for sweden party rally in a town in the west of the country. thank you. very much. i. think people. want to know. a violent incident in the city all developed here in sweden at the meeting of the leadership of right wing turn into force sweden party with its vote party alternative for sweden is famous for ideas that so many can see there is to ready coat maybe extreme for example they call on closing all the border areas and on sending a significant number of immigrants from sweden back to the countries they came from
5:13 pm
although the connection was never established the confirmed by the authorities all police responded blames immigrants for high criminality rate in the country since there were many people with foreign backgrounds in the crowd gathered their things started boiling quite fast people started first shouting and then throwing eggs to the party members and at one moment a youngster from the crowd attacked one of the leaders of alternative was one of my colleagues from alternative for sweden being attacked by an immigrant you who attend the did meeting him was screaming and shouting all over the meeting i was attacked i tried to protect my friend and colleague and this immigrant starting hitting befalls in the face also the few eggs are cool when we left the scene they ran after and when we had to stall you know the red line they kicked the
5:14 pm
car although as you just heard the party member referred to the attacker as an immigrant police has never confirmed that information when police arrived they took the attacker to a police car and they detained him but. let the party member go and that's part discontent of the people gathered we have been able to speak to those who have gathered there on why they were not happy with the idea is spread by turning to for sweden part of this what they told us we really see still no streets still no street party saying they want to take down all the immigrants and the people east and happy they don't like as long as we can integrate them into swedish society and they become they become a swedish as me because i'm also an immigrant from belgium. as long as they become swedish and they work and they do normal swedish things it's absolutely no problem
5:15 pm
as long as they can keep their religion they can keep their culture to should speak swedish and they should work. immigrants here. they're not included in this. sweden is going to have general elections here in just ten days tensions are quite high ahead of the national that is described by many as a historic event because a ruling social democratic party the largest and the oldest party here in sweden according to polls could get a worse through in the last one hundred years with right wing ideas and far right dia's getting more and more popularity. the president of the international olympic committee has admitted the war on doping in sport might never be won but thomas bach has come under fire for that comment especially from america's anti-doping agency which claims baucus just given up parties on a takes
5:16 pm
a look at what this could all mean for the future of russian athletics. while the world of sports continues its fight against doping the president of the international olympic committee has made a very honest and a very sad admission but pink. who will always happen. who's. one of the walls you can order those words did not sit well with the chief of the u.s. anti-doping agency traver tygart so obviously a top flight but the leader of florence i don't can't simply throwing it out he probably has a point especially since doping scandals have hit tiger's own turf just this week alone two u.s. athletes received lengthy bans for substance abuse that's while pundits blame anti-doping officials for turning a blind eye when it comes to domestic sport or rather multibillion businesses like the n.f.l. but thomas back strong words weren't the trigger for your side as criticism tiger
5:17 pm
to assume that the i.o.c. presidents quote was essentially a precursor to water reinstating the russian anti-doping agency at that meeting scheduled for september twentieth but he did say that he hoped russia had learned its lesson the hard way and would be welcomed back into the world of sports and that was something tiger stressed must not happen would be a devastating blow to russia to meet a lot of credibility as well as the hopes and dreams of millions around the world who believe in clean and fair competition russia and its anti-doping agency have been imprisoned for several years now after the publication of the so-called mclaren report which detailed accusations of a state sponsored doping program the result many russian athletes banned the country's anti-doping agency effectively shut down and water handing over a lengthy criteria list for ricin to be reinstated last year the agency acknowledged that nineteen of thirty one points had been met and just this month
5:18 pm
the president of water said there were only two conditions remaining. two off thirty one but they still had to be purified i think relationships to the point that we have yet to purify the two conditions that are still outstanding sure more needs to be done with new accusations and new anti-doping investigations russia still has three weeks to put things right so has tiger jumped the gun in demanding russia to be kept out the final two criteria we're talking about. russia is supposed to say hands up the mclaren report was right we did engage in state sponsored doping russia has absolutely rejected the mclaren reports finding not because they don't believe you russia's quite rightly said we want the evidence thomas bach himself as requested the evidence and so far nobody has city apart we presume from mclaren it is only a guess at this stage but i think the first steps to
5:19 pm
a reinstatement will be taking place towards the end of september when there is a big meeting of water and i think the outcome will be that russia will be readmitted i think it will be an unconditional reinstatement but eventually on i think people will just have to say well ok russia are not admitting the been state sponsored doping but we need them anyway they are a world power in sports and sport needs russia keeping sports clean is something that both the i.o.c. president and ahead of us anti-doping agency are striving to achieve but can you really demand one thing from another country when similar dopping scandals break out in your own backyard one thing's for sure the next water meeting in the seychelles is looking like politics and doping will go down the finish line. and anti palestinian protest in the u.s. presented as a grassroots movement has now been revealed to be allegedly staged by an israeli
5:20 pm
lobby group a leaked extract from an unreleased al-jazeera documentary is said to show people who were paid to take part in the demonstration we spoke to the investigative journalist who obtained the video here's what happened. if you happen to speak with any reporters just stay on message what is that message that's t.p. it's a secret you're going to know that i'll mention is that has to be interested in. terrorism and. the protestors are on a fellowship program run by a conservative think tank called good things to touche to just ignore the whole family and be out there these charities he says suicide bombing at a campus you have to stop searching the shit out of here no pollack is at the
5:21 pm
center of a neo conservative prone likud political network in washington that represents the right wing of the pro israel lobby has collaborated with neo conservative think tank in washington and the hoover institution to basically pay fake protesters to make it look like people are coming out and protesting palestine activity in washington my worst nightmare is. just a photo of t.r. and i together were just like early identifiable and like all of us what traders are sort of the jewish conspiracy her body how much it costs fifty thousand dollars plus benefit this way of putting out a sound like house for it so i don't this is out of this is actually the best boss yeah astroturfing is when corporations or political movements basically pay. for grassroots support this is what is so revealing about the israel lobby in america is that they basically pay for congressional support for
5:22 pm
through donations they even are willing to pay low level people to go out in the streets that make it look like common americans actually support the israel lobby has goals when they really don't it's just going to be. great resistance child suicide through bank killers despair that they kill children they don't care of at any rate. i'm distressed to find that all investigation into america's approach is really little b.s. they represent the most important test yet over al-jazeera as independents whether on network still has space to thrive and miss the unjust blockade against uk atari hires. we contacted al-jazeera to ask why the film was never broadcast we've also
5:23 pm
approached the emergency committee for israel and the hoover institution for their reactions if we hear anything back we'll let you know. the u.s. has worn india it could be facing sanctions if delhi goes ahead with the purchase of the russian s four hundred missile defense system we would still have very significant concerns if india pursued major new platforms and systems from russia there is an impression that we are going to completely protect the india relationship insulate india from any fallout from this legislation no matter what they do that is a bit misleading. the sanctions x. was signed by donald trump in two thousand and seventeen to impose penalties on russia iran and north korea and allows for moves against any country engaging with russia's defense or intelligence sectors but the new u.s. defense bill lets the president waive sanctions against some of washington's partners like india indonesia and vietnam if lifting them would benefit u.s.
5:24 pm
national interests india is now in the final stages of signing off on a six billion dollars deal with russia for the s four hundred the technology can engage up to eight targets at a time with a range of four hundred kilometers and it's been described in western media as one of the best air defense systems on the market however it's that six billion we mentioned that seemingly become a target for washington saying sions while india continues to stress it isn't violating international law by going ahead. is not a u.n. act it's a us act we have spoken about the s four hundred for years not just today the warning from the white house comes just a week before american indian top officials are due to meet in new delhi india is not the first country to come under scrutiny for its dealings with russia since two thousand and seventeen turkey has been under pressure from america for wanting to buy the s four hundred over promised it would retaliate against any penalties coming from washington we spoke to an international affairs professor who believes
5:25 pm
that india could be pushed into strengthening ties with russia and china. this is a negotiating tactic of trump administration we have seen this many times they try to apply maximum pressure and then they concede and backtrack because they do realize that they have other geopolitical goals in the asia pacific for which india should be. a central player passing through a very thorny. donald trump has taken the white house because he doesn't seem to have their grand strategy for asia pacific is also forcing us to rethink our approach to or china and to russia simply because we need to have our own counterpressure point in order for the trump administration to understand the importance of the value of india that we are not a banana republic that can be pushed around blackmail and threats of sanctions russia as a defense partner and we are going to stay with them as four hundred triumph is the best surface to air missile that sort so or geo strategic needs for our self
5:26 pm
defense there is no substitute for f. four hundred anywhere in the world the threat is more to do with fear is that the s four hundred gets mixed up with the f. thirty five the american fighter jet which we are looking to acquire then the secrets the military secrets will spill old. video of a young palestinian girl climbing an israeli security fence in the west bank has provoked outrage online she simply trying to get back to her house after the i.d.f. closed afterward home campaigners say this is happening also frequently for palestinians we spoke to said amroth from the hebron freedom fund who filmed the incident. never the army closes. to do that every day and the restrictions are there if the students from the neighborhood use in. a few minutes only school we have
5:27 pm
a girls' school avoid the school only two or three minutes from the neighborhood but the solution policy in the situation. of those that. makes them. you know. and sometimes climb the gates and they climb the fences. let's take a closer look at where that incident unfolded it was in the southern part of the west bank in hebron the old city israeli authorities put up a one hundred fifty meter long fence there which you can see here in blue palestinians living there have two ways to reach their homes the first is the main entry exit checkpoint of that fence and the second the gate you saw being scaled by the girl in the video we asked the i.d.f. why they felt closing off those routes were necessary and they replied it was for security reasons after news really man was stabbed to death in the area last year last thursday that specific gate was again locked for several hours israel claims
5:28 pm
it was for repairs after politan ians palestinian sabotage that the i.d.f. also stressed residents were still able to pass through the main security checkpoint it's not the first time the gate has been a flashpoint back in may israeli forces kept its kept it close for six days as a punishment for stone throwing as they put it. i am. not. a. little. it's a little. fun it's amro again says palestinian families are facing segregation and equality and their daily lives because of the barrier the fence you know isolate the neighborhood on seven to seven families from the schools from the. universities from the other neighbors we
5:29 pm
call the gate and the old city to an equal at all because that's a road. from the main street is that. they walk on the i mean. living the they walk on the side of that old you know we have printed once one hundred movement in one kilometer square in the city center. that's a global news update for now wherever you may be thanks for tuning in.
5:30 pm
a. few. shows seem wrong when old rules just don't hold. any world yet to shape our disdain comes to the ticket and engagement equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
