turkey's foreign minister says violations in syria could not be possible without the support of the two countries they both back president bashar assad wild turkey supports opposition groups fighting in. dozens of houses in southern california are buried in a thick layer of mud and debris after a powerful storm of flooding and mudslides have killed at least thirteen people and forced thousands of others to abandon their homes helicopters were deployed to rescue people trapped on rooftops. the european union's called on min ma to release two reuters journalists who've been charged under the official secrets act while alone and twice were arrested in december after police said they acquired information of legally to share it with foreign media hutu and been covering the crisis in iraq and state where hundreds of thousands of rincon muslims have fled the military crackdown. firefighters say the four day long blaze on a rainy an oil tanker could burn for another two to four weeks so far there's been
was material support to terrorism and would you say they use a social welfare activity to win the hearts and minds of the palestinian people exactly what they do well i think this material support statute is a guilt by association statute i couldn't google you and find out anything about your work background is that correct i don't go to small ending i thought i'm in finance and. i will let them with the had a limb your own and that with a walk with them i'm ready to do most of the holy land foundation justice department is alleging that the holy land foundation is supporting terrorism because they're working with zakat committees but we have a long list of projects funded by the us government who worked with zakat committees and we have the documentation to show this and there was not a single charge that the where the jury was unanimous so the case was over we won but soon after that the judge asked the prosecutor will retry the case and he
says yes your honor i believe that we will. the second trial was held in two thousand and eight and then the second trial was in front of judge so lease a different judge from the first trial and in fact he led in even more evidence for the government than the first judge. big difference in the two trials is i think probably the government put on probably too much evidence in overwhelmed jewry. with too much evidence our remember in general the evidence was presented probably in a more. simple and logical way based more on the timeline there were even
more burning buses during the second trial there was a horrible video of people stamping on the american flag that had nothing to do with holy land except that there were four main differences. the four differences were first the government presented testimony from a man named ahmed. who was a cooperate with the government mr schorr bashi had gotten into trouble embezzling from somebody unrelated to holy land but he had briefly worked with the holy land so the government went to him and said if you testify against holy land we'll give you a break on your other case and he testified that everyone in power stein knew that holy land was connected to hamas even though he'd never been to the west bank and all of his testimony was based on newspaper articles or talking to people
a second piece of evidence was from mr robert bryant who came from the treasury department mr mcbride was permitted to testify in the second trial that it didn't matter whether and if he was placed on the list or not that under circumstances that he described contributing money to an organization like that could nonetheless violate the law and material support the government was permitted as its third piece of new haven't to call an expert witness named steve inside who had been on the national security council who is a well known expert in the area of the middle east and mr simon was allowed to testify that the designation of hamas as a terrorist organization helped the united states in various ways including being able to station troops in the mideast and also avoiding another nine eleven style attack on the united states there was another. piece of evidence it was actually three documents that the israelis had seized from arafat's compound.
they i think two of them were handwritten nobody knew where they came from who wrote them one of them said something about holyland being connected to hamas we had objected to those documents in the first trial because they were so clearly unreliable the the genesis. the basis for the information and the moves were so poorly said the judge had excluded them in the second trial the judge allowed them in the. part of mark. i'm not. i want to walk on.
camera. but i don't have a. i'm not. the problem we had was that the government hired an expert in the second trial and the government was able to keep the jurors who we didn't want and they tried to pick a jury that had the least amount of education we got rid of a lot of jurors and did it i think is a really good job but they ended up with a jury that was. much more favorable to the government my name is my feet out of the closet. and as i look at all these beautiful faces for my dear brothers a sisters i want to tell you i'm extremely proud of you for being here showing support for me and for brother still carry on for brother of a son and for all those people who are seeking justice this is a point that i owe it in english so done critique my grammar. wire my
brain and bug my tongue. and tab my thoughts if you. examine my walk and study my cock and dig my dreams with you to scare and strip me down and check me out search my past from door to head to capture every call i ever made give you ears to my serious jokes translated this and me a cup that just to impress you d.c. folks. i hear you say giving clothes to naked orphans was a crock all childrens of those who died are war not and it can all go
dark. i should have sent them to death for all for things that then get their nothing but terrorists. and none of them wasn't all much i beg your pardon you're not just the only this is without those saw i wrote last across i am calling. it. before the just that will do that for just witnessed. a government go it was a tall. order did it clear. i learned if there had been a previous trial which indian had contrary and that and that now these were these men were being retried so so i began to read and about the holy land foundation i
began to read about palestine and the history of palestine and i learned a lot that i did not know every day at noon i started going to the trials we began from project fear we organized an ongoing daily protest which was that which was also feeding that feeding the poor just outside the federal building we were giving the same symbol it's ok to feed poor people it's not a crime to feed to feed people who organized buses to come and bring people to the trials we wanted to feel the courtroom with people and and in that that was successful they were the courtroom was usually feel with people.
canada would kill my family when the senate deal had to rule and effect what focus our world our fear television on young. and imagery i think will happen i was ready for a band and jimmy are in the midst of the mad and kind i saw that cut out the sabbath. and. a little bit at the one by one. guilty guilty guilty guilty. my heart fell to the floor and shot a. bus out on a little sort of to me can be sure i have handcuffs i mean i'm here for him out really what are you doing at the moment i'm going to. terrorists order like
a flight threat that would be your own thought for how the command if you had can matoaca and all you could have after your many a trophy bob thought. you were there over and had the model called for me how could down my love of the five hundred had been invented so much with who. comes into. the who don't know how to hold autonomous on even fifteen seconds. a little older all of us. and so jennifer have said. two thousand and. by dan some some just who are multiple better informed than me any. more moderate
on them kind of you know had them incommunicado since i left of the tech and i'm not going to come here to hire a model citizen sent overseas and almost us are like a mechanic when the content of the advice and you know my dad is not going to basically serve more than sixty five or sixty five years more than a life sentence in prison like the minute your mind can't accept that on scientism day my father got up walked to the podium and said the following. nothing in my life was as satisfactory as knowing that i could sign a check. it was the only evidence you have used against me but that was the most enjoyable part of my life knowing that i could sign a check to assist the thousands of palestinian families who got displaced after their homes were demolished nothing was more satisfactory to me than providing
scholarships to hundreds of palestinian students who had high average grades despite their circumstance i said to the judge. that a man named al mari how can that be that someone who pleads guilty and admits to being a sleeper agent for al qaeda is going to get ten years and the government wants whatever they wanted which was enormous amount for shukri abu bakar who committed no violent crimes who was convicted of providing charity to palestinian children perhaps as far as the government was concerned the wrong children and the judges response as i recall was something to the effect of well mr all mary just did one thing and your client has been a lifelong supporter of hamas. and i was just stunned i've been a lawyer for an american criminal lawyer for almost thirty years and it was the
most unjust decision i've ever seen it's like somebody just came up to you and just hit you in the stomach as hard as they could it took all the air out you felt empty you felt. the. a sense of injustice had just occurred. we appealed mr washington connection to the court of appeals in new orleans we had risen number of issues we challenge the anonymous witness for example we challenge the admission of the gruesome photographs we challenged a good bit of the government's evidence and most of it the court of appeals said was ok. but it found four errors goes for errors for the admission of mr mcbrien testimony the admission of mr simonds testimony the admission of mr
schorr bhajis testimony and the admission of those documents that the israeli soldiers had found in the wreckage of the palestinian authority headquarters in ramallah that the court of appeals decision was well yes all four of those pieces of evidence which didn't come in in the first trial which obviously made a big difference because in the second trial everyone was convicted it was all harmless. and that's an outrageous decision and i believe a political decision that we were just not going to win. bad thing. almost says in one cannot submit you know and one had to say in.
a woman session. comes out on an issue that if one. president of the government i mean he doesn't want to meet. someone and i thought did my need for cut. cut that had been. it was the shot of my father is a family man he loves to gather everyone for breakfast and for lunch and for dinner so every weekend he made sure to get gather the family and beautiful palestinian brunch now after he left we all these separate. separate times in our own schedule rarely do we all sit together and even this is where he brought us together. follow me on the almost see. with with them
dog and i. know. that i would plan. although i would love them in the. new life that i was going to involve. he works in the kitchen in the prison so he gets some money instead of using it for commissary which is stuff that you can buy in prison for example tennis shoes he's been wearing the same ones for three years he would send me the checks every month because he knew i needed it and by doing that he's helping my mom the first you know checker guy got some aside money to send him a check every month and i said now it's my turn you know vava it's my turn i want to give back to you and he said you don't have to do it out of all like you're my great a scam. well the can then help with you can be

trading in stolen goods that have been taken by the place if anyone ever comes to ask the question then sort of throw their hands up in the air and say i don't know i was just nominee director we're doing a investigation into. ukraine could you aid bribes you've been corrupt our own i've been corrupt i did just what the president says the challenges are investigations the only go this time the most memorable moments with al-jazeera was when i was on air as hosni mubarak fell with the crowds in tahrir square to appear . as. if something happens anywhere in the world al jazeera is in place we're able to cover news like no other news organizations. were able to do it properly. and that is our strength.

a little videos connected in sasebo i can call the thing on the model to condemn as i don't have them again locally fundraising dinners. but then as i look at them in . a larger makers of the highest that i learned this was. sophia as a thought that i think to. name a connected national in the hyphen in the north and we're not going to give up and who's just a sack. so i talk about the case to everyone i talk about the case when i go out into the streets and i go to restaurants and you know sometimes i'll talk to just people i meet at different events every single person who has heard this story has been outraged i have spoken to every major ivy league school in the country at harvard at yale that brown university at columbia university and as i had the opportunity to speak and also what's occurring on the in the group for jumma
students for justice in palestine i mean that event as a lead in the usia you. seen the whole love or by the whole also had a thought who were tons of soft hopeful selamat of a warrior. who i was i was shocked about what i heard i never heard about it really quite before i heard little bits about it but i didn't really know the full the full scope and then and i began to inquire some more and to get more information and then i came back to texas after that and i met to the families and over the last two three years i've been gathering information all the information that i could find about about this case. is willing to go into i mean from the butcher. of the sun.
will really give them to be through the i was able to meet obviously shukri family several times before each family several times have a son in law she's family several times here in dallas. and just recently about a month ago i was able to visit ukraine prison i was pleasantly surprised and impressed by his ability to maintain this wonderful spirit to maintain his optimism we talk about the kids we talk about the case we talked about my family his family the history of the palestine politics and we talk about everything you know like friends do. people. i've got all the material now it's a question of sitting down and and writing this is a political case i think these five men are political prisoners i think their position right now is very similar to the position of palestinian prisoners in israeli jails. you could see that they were doing
a very good job of being very successful and this contradicts the zionist there is that there is no palestinian problem that there is no palestinian people that the refugees and the poverty and all of these issues are not true that israel has nothing to do with it they're all just terrorists it's all a lie they all want to attack israel and so on so if you have an organization that's decent that's honorable that is doing good work people are going to start thinking maybe they have a point maybe design a story is not perfect and that's why they've had to bring them down it was a threat because it challenges the zionist narrative. and that is the most dangerous thing to do for israel that is the most dangerous thing to do for zionism and that is the thing that the israeli lobby fights the most when you want to. watch.
i want to. i want to. shop back shop. we appealed the case after the second trial and what's called the fifth circuit or one of the the higher courts and they affirmed the conviction they said we agree that the jury got it right so they didn't change the verdict we appealed it to the u.s. supreme court the united states supreme court decided they didn't want to listen the only thing left isn't is a law another lawsuit that says we didn't get
a fair trial it's called i hate the titian and what that means is you go back all the way to the beginning back to judge so lease and argue that this was not a fair trial argue that the lawyers were ineffective which we all agreed that we were in one way or another that we we filed affidavits with the court saying things that we didn't do that we should have done. what i'm working on what i filed and what i'm pursuing it's it's called the twenty to fifty five motion which is under the for. adderall law where after their convictions and their appeals have been denied it's a way to raise fundamental constitutional errors to raise new evidence that that had not been considered before and to to ask the court to reconsider a lot of the liturgy of their convictions. and because this
whole case the whole issue in this case was whether or not hamas controlled these cars so at the trial there was no witness presented by either the defense or the prosecution who was a person who actually worked with the cock if they had a retry. it would be on the same accusations but the trial would be completely different because at a retrial the jury would have first hand testimony from people that would testify that these are cockneys are not and were not controlled by hamas right now the lawyers have been able to secure thirty four affidavits from different leader i mean different board members of the csicop committees who swear that these o'clock committees gave aid based on need not on creed or politics that they were not under
influence of anybody that this twenty to thirty five petition is the last legal opportunity that these men have to challenge their convictions in court if this petition is not successful then they have no further legal options. why is it that could be a fallacy in the sums. and the c.m. of us out in the. in the let's see if they had that offer for us to your confidence so. you will have the most of our luck in the whole club. most clearly were there when we thought at times that there might be a way to do some kind of prisoner trade we've not been able to really get anywhere
with that of course we could ask the president for a pardon it seems to me that the only. possible outcome for these people is a pardon and i don't know politically whether a pardon would be in the works by american officials i would hope that someone a justice department official whether it's eric holder or whomever. it was see that there was an injustice done in this case recommend to the president the united states whoever he or she may be and say these men should be part of. my i'm important if you have an official and i mean that's it i think you know their best shot would be in a court rather than in the realm of politics because. we're still in a you know a kind of anti terror well the future of this case will end when the legal options are over as far as whether these men get in or out of prison ill either end in them
serving their time or dying in prison or. there may we may be successful with this . b.s. or the legal battle that we're still fighting on now they can't i'm not going to be convinced that this man will die chris and that my father were dying chris and that's why i say i can't but i think the way this can be resolved. has to be through public pressure so whether people are living here in this country the united states whether they're in the middle east or they're in europe people have to stand up people have to protest people have to speak up against this this has to be something everybody talks about argues about is it right is it wrong to bring it to a point where politicians have to listen bring it to a point where there is public pressure to at least reopen the trial if not to you know throughout the trial all together exonerate them.
other gayman were pledged to jail for nothing my father got sixty five years hit and i hurt anyone or anything if anything he helps people now the favor i really want from you is to be the age of five you are the only one who can do this and i hope you all. did you know i have the same birthday as dr martin luther king would you wear if you that's why we think the saying. come on mr president we need you can you solve this case i hope you think about this and please as soon as you can thank you sincerely an american girl who wants her died.

how the weather pattern across south america by one looks fairly typical for this time the good string of rain potential through southern pos brazil touching going to go on into spring up up into the western side of the rainforest this is useful though in the northeast corner where it's found she'd been dry drives drives the last couple of years to see any rain here till is a good thing at temps are back to where they should be essences thirty one is right now is average so it's nice and warm in buenos aires and here of course in the summer sunshine is getting warmer if anything the passes kept to forty but then the passes along the way above sea level north of the constant we've seen for days if not weeks if any persistent line of cloud from costa rica and recently out through jamaica cuba and florida coast some brief flooding in some parts of jamaica but that tide represents dying rain if anything showing something of the spurs have a cuba and then we get to thursday probably confined to the bahamas and having left florida behind now the story in the us in the last week or so has been extreme cold
