8:34 am
change and if they don't turn we're patient people will wait for ten fifteen twenty years fifty years or longer to take you with castro in cuba we can do the same with carter if you look at the tone of that statement by the saudi foreign minister. it gives us a strong indication that we're not going to see any way out of the political crisis in the g.c.c. and the impasse is definitely going to continue despite the fact that the united states of america has made reassurances they will use its political leverage to try to bring all the parties to set aside their differences i don't think this is going to happen any time soon china has accused u.s. president donald trump of slander after he said beijing was trying to meddle in the upcoming u.s. midterm elections trump told the u.n. security council this week that china was interfering because of his tough stance on trade particle hain reports. that giant it was a new and surprising allegation from the u.s.

8:36 am
brushed off the new unfounded allegations but analysts warn china probably won't china has a culture that goes back they can name their own of their emperors going back for five thousand years so they do not think that a president of the united states would say things that are careless worth less so they're going to find a deeper meaning in this then you and i are used to with just kind of donald trump's rant of the moment. the president is clearly upset with these ads that china placed in an important newspaper in iowa saying trump was the reason farmers were losing money he recently tweeted china is actually placing propaganda ads in the des moines register and other papers made to look like news that's because we are beating them on trade open markets and the farmers will make a fortune when this is over. the right now u.s. farmers are losing big and growing impatient this trade war is hitting the heart of

his base and the president is clearly aware and frustrated that could have a big impact on the upcoming election particularly in al-jazeera washington yes such a state might pump aoe says sanctions on north korea must be vigorously enforced told the u.n. security council he's concerned by reports that some member states undermining the sanctions by employing north korean workers the path to peace and a brighter future is only through diplomacy and only denuclearization there is any other path north korea may choose will ever be lead to ever increasing isolation and pressure it is imperative for members of the united nations to take that to heart in forstmann of u.n. security council sanctions must continue vigorously and without fail until we realize the fully final verified denuclearization the c.e.o. of tesla in a must has been charged with fraud musk is accused of misleading investors when he

significance to marijuana culture claiming in an e-mail to a colleague that that would amuse his girlfriend now the regulators say that this was not amusing at all to the stock buyers who helped push up tesla's price that day of the tweet and then ended up losing money when musk withdrew this plan to go private and the regulators say not only is this not funny to them but this is illegal in terms of the bigger picture what does this all mean then the future of tesla. right so this is probably the most dramatic step down in what we've seen in the last months of the unraveling of the law musk he was once considered and revered for his brilliance for his forward thinking and for his business success but in these recent months he's gone after a british diver in thailand who helped rescue those boys trapped in a cave accusing that diver without evidence of being

a pedophile musk is now facing a defamation lawsuit for that and he went on a live web stream a few weeks ago smoking marijuana and causing his investors to panic now if he is convicted of these security fraud charges he could be removed from his position of being c.e.o. of tesla and he could be ordered to pay civil penalties as far as what this means for tesla itself it's notable that the company is not named as a defendant in this lawsuit but because the company is so tethered to the reputation of its very eccentric founder and leader the future of the company itself is also in question heidi thank you. president morsi a mucker you want dodgin challenge they face painful months ahead trying to meet the terms of an increase crisis loan on thursday the international monetary fund boosted its loan to argentina with seven billion dollars it's the biggest loan package over aimed at shoring up the country's anything finances stories about

else while his accuser stands by her allegations that she was sexually assaulted by . at the u.n. general assembly palestine says the u.s. is not an honest broker of the middle east peace talks. and china's government hits back at president accusing him of. president trump supreme court nominee has given him defiant testimony to a u.s. senate committee saying he's completely innocent of the sexual assault accusations against him but said he did not watch blasi ford's testimony but described the allegations as a calculated and orchestrated political hit he was speaking just hours after his accuser gave an emotional recollection of her attacker dr forward with what degree of certainty do you believe brett kavanaugh assault one hundred percent one hundred
8:50 am
percent i believe he was going to rape me. i tried to yell for help when i did brett put his hand over my mouth stop me from yelling this is what terrified me the most and it had the most lasting impact on my life it was hard for me to breathe and i thought that brett was accidentally going to kill me but for his part come on a denied ever committing sexual misconduct and said he wouldn't be threatened into withdrawing i'm not questioning. that dr ford may have been sexually assaulted by some person in some place at some time but i have never done this to her or to anyone that's not who i am it is not who i was i am innocent of this charge i will not be
8:51 am
intimidated into withdrawing from this process you've tried hard you've given it your all no one can question your effort but your coordinated well funded effort to destroy my good name and destroy my family will not drive me out. rosen jordan has more now from washington d.c. . u.s. president donald trump is praising the performance of brett kavanaugh his nominee to be on the u.s. supreme court cavanaugh was testifying before the senate judiciary committee again on thursday not about his judicial qualifications or his legal theories but about allegations that in the summer of one thousand nine hundred two he allegedly attempted to such really assault a young woman that woman is christine blazin ford a psychology professor from california who testified before the same panel on thursday that even though cavanaugh was drunk he was trying to assault her and that
8:52 am
his friend mark judge was egging them on however ford also testified sometimes on the verge of tears that she was able to get away from capital in judge and hid in a bathroom at someone's home while they stumbled off and a stone simply didn't try to attack her again. republicans say that they're going to hold a vote on the judiciary committee on friday morning on whether to recommend kavanagh's nomination to be a supreme court justice however democrats on the panel as well as in the congress with large say that the nomination should be delayed once again so that the f.b.i. can investigate not just blazin ford's allegation but the allegations made by at least two other women in recent days they say with a full investigation having a justice kavanaugh would put the legitimacy of the supreme court into dealt however republicans do hold a very slim majority and with support from the u.s.
8:53 am
president they may get brett kavanaugh on the nation's highest court or jeff house as executive director of the revolving door project at the center for economic and policy research he says cavernous testimony will be hugely damaging for the republican party. i think this was a disaster for the republican party i think that kavanagh testimony was completely divisive whereas dr baazi is ford's was i think everyone both men and women democrats and republicans all believe she came across as an honest person whereas cavanagh i think really only spoke to both not only just the republican audience but just a subset of republicans men and i think that republican women independents who are both men and women and democrats are all going to be pretty appalled by any sort of continuing republican support for judge kavanagh's nomination even if it narrowly passes or if it narrowly fails either way i think the republicans have the
8:54 am
associated themselves with abusive behavior and disrespect towards women in a way that is going to be ultimately very damaging to their party the palestinian president has used his speech of the u.n. general assembly to launch a strong attack on the u.s. and israel mahmoud abbas said the u.s. was no longer an independent mediator in the peace process in contrast israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu barely addressed the issue in his speech on diplomatic editor james bays has more. when the israeli prime minister spoke to the un there was one thing he hardly talked about the palestinians he instead focused on iran claiming israel had discovered a new nuclear storage facility in tehran he said when told to post about the strength of his relationship with the trumpet ministration so i want to use this opportunity to express israel's appreciation to president trump. an ambassador.
8:55 am
for the unwavering support they provided israel at the united nations the palestinian president gave his message the moment he took to the podium and put slates at little bay jerusalem is not for sale i know how the sharman and the palestinian people's rights are not up for bargaining he went on to express his frustration at the actions of the trumpet ministration and all that and we waited his peace initiative without most patients but we were shocked by decisions and actions he undertook that completely contradict the role and commitment of the us towards the peace process. and it is ironic that the american administration still talks about what they call the deal of the century the palestinians believe that by his actions it's not just the president trump is not an honest broker he's actively on israel's side and when you
8:56 am
listen to the way it's a news conference before he left new york he described the man he's put in charge of peace efforts his own son in law jared kush no it's not hard to see why i think the two state will happen i think we're going to go down the two state road and i'm glad i got it out and jarrett who is so involved he loves israel he loves israel but he's also going to be very fair with the palestinians you understand it takes two people to be happy to groups of people to be happy everybody's got to be happy and that's why it's so tough the fact he barely mentioned the palestinians i think shows the confidence of benjamin netanyahu and what's going to come out of the chair a cushion a peace plan which we're being told we revealed in the next four months the palestinians meanwhile already i think believe they're going to have to reject what's in that plan james bays al-jazeera at the united nations. harry force that has more now on the reaction to netanyahu speech from western lucilla. well the
8:57 am
israeli media israeli officials had trailed some kind of surprise revelation in the speech of benjamin netanyahu to the un general assembly no surprise on the subject of that revelation it concerned iran which has long been his number one priority when it comes to talking about security both here to his domestic audience and internationally he said that israeli intelligence services had discovered a second iranian nuclear building inside tehran the second after the revelation that he made in major in a speech when he said that there was a building housing an extensive archive of iran's nuclear program at least what many people many observers saw as its historical nuclear weapons program now he says that iran also has a building housing what he said was nuclear equipment and materiel and that there were at least fifteen shipping containers full of this equipment inside this building he gave the g.p.s.
8:58 am
coordinates said that iranian officials had been trying to clear it out and he challenged the international atomic energy agency to carry out an immediate inspection of that facility all of this buttressing he would argue his claims that iran needs to be tackled as a threat to the security of israel the threats to the widest ability of the middle east he said that iran iraq israel held the capacity and the right to tackle iran in all sorts of arenas syria iraq anywhere at any time he said he also diverted considerable time to the issue of the israeli palestinian conflict and particularly attacking mahmoud abbas who earlier in his speech called the nation state law passed in the israeli parliament the knesset earlier this year a racist and apartheid law he said it was nothing of the sort netanyahu arguing that it was simply a state espousing its national character its jewish character saying that israel
8:59 am
could be both jewish and democrat. dick of course would have asked arguing that by downgrading arabic and by saying that only jews could determine the nature of the state of israel that it was racist and that it confirmed the party nature of the israeli state something that benjamin netanyahu said reflected an old sort of anti semitism with a new face bangladesh's prime minister is calling on the international community for help in repatriating of a seven hundred thousand range of minorities the fed may involve the military crackdown last year so it has seen her dressed un members saying the situation needs immediate action one of the no rules in other words we are party to by what we have seen in un reports about atrocities it is they're doing or who have now taken shelter in bangladesh recherche dent amount to genocide and crimes against humanity. we expected the international community particularly the un to give do
