to train people who are fighting against deisel now it seems that there has been a shift in dollar terms position because he was at the white house a for a news conference with baltic leaders just in the last couple of hours and there he said his position it changed ever so slightly and that once the job is done then they'll start pulling out of syria one of the things that has always concerned donald trump from when he was kind of that donald trump time he's president donald trump is the cost of america's military adventures and he's aware that the operation in syria is costing hundreds of millions of dollars he's also aware that there are many others who would like to see the united states continue their operations in syria but he made the point very clearly putting pressure on some of his allies one in particular that if they want to continue to do that then they're going to have to stump up a woman who opened fire at the offices of you tube is now dad it can be seen here police searching people leaving the office is in san bruno close to san francisco

don't know her identity yet we do not know whether she was an employee at you tube or perhaps related to in some way or connected to another employee at you tube we don't have those details yet and neither do the police but one eyewitness youtube employee who's quoted by one of the news outlets online in san francisco says that he saw the shooter wearing a mask full body armor and moving about called only through the building shooting with a handgun now as we said. as you mentioned local television stations showed video of a police rushing into the building heavily armed also of people being evacuated from you tube headquarters. lining up to be searched for weapons. and then being released so at this incident does not appear to have been quite as awful as

bill the most popular politician in this country and is leading the polls for the october presidential elections presuming that he's even going to be able to run and another reason they argue is that if he is allowed to stay out of jail that would set a dangerous precedent that could lead to the release of goods and scores of a high ranking politicians and business leaders who are serving up prison sentences at this very hour who still have appeals and who are in prison precisely as part of the widespread damage corruption probe that has really rocked this country in fact a lot of the world. is there any steer yet about how the supreme court is likely to rule. that is the multimillion dollar question at this hour from what we understand what observers are insiders are saying the supreme court justices are tired and this hour and it's going overall come down to a one to one deciding vote which is why of course so many people are demonstrating

it was announced by minister benjamin netanyahu face intense pressure from right wing groups over the deal which would have let at least sixteen thousand africans stay and seen another sixteen thousand resettled in western countries steph decker reports now from tel aviv. the deal was on then it was off this was the reaction in tel aviv by some who had hoped the tens of thousands of asylum seekers from eritrea and sudan would finally have their legal status resolved. is one of them he made the dangerous journey from eritrea in the horn of africa alone at the age of sixteen he's been here for six years and is fluent in hebrew he shows us his immigration papers that he needs to renew every two months shit. is first of all there is racism in this country and this is a difficult disease especially among the politicians this we could have dealt with but then there's the issue of a government takes twenty percent of the money we make and puts in
a deposit we can only see this money when we leave the country this puts huge pressure on us. the deal would have seen just over sixteen thousand african asylum seekers resettled in western countries under the auspices of the united nations and in exchange israel would process and resolve the status of up to twenty thousand others who would remain in the country something it hasn't done it would also replacing ultimatum issued by the israeli government last year be deported to an unknown african country or face an indefinite time in jail. but activists tell us that even this no council deal which put some hope was fluent this is the first time we had a chance to take part to take responsibility to share the burden with the world and say look. it's hard for us blah blah blah even though it's not hard we're benefiting at konami cleaner but it's hard for us we're doing state we're we're going to take our we're going to take our share and taking refuge is we're actually
from a modern state from a democracy state we're trading we're saying ok we're we can't even take care of sixty thousand we're throwing them back to the world many of the african asylum seekers we've been speaking to live here in southern tell of even they will tell you that there was a short lived moment of hope but now it is back to the uncertainty that they have experiencing here for years and they say they don't know what israeli government will do next these people have been living in a legal limbo for years under the constant threat of prison or deportation we're told this is all part of a systematic strategy to force them to leave israel human rights activists say this is an inherently racist policy aimed to preserving the identity of israel as an exclusively jewish state and it appears that a plan that would allow up to twenty thousand asylum seekers to stay in israel and get some form of legal status was something that those in the country's far right didn't tolerate for even hoffa day stephanie decker al-jazeera television.
