9:13 am
central london to a standstill at a time when the government is power lies by brics it this was supposed to be the week when the u.k. would have begun its divorce from the european union instead. there is more uncertainty more waiting and more anger and the forty eight percent of britons who voted in the referendum three years ago to remain in the u.k. are increasingly exasperated this wasn't what they were promised this was a campaign based on lies and i think people. leaving the european union were actually means what politicians from across the spectrum called for the government to arrange another referendum echoing the demonstrators concerned that the deadlock whether you. voted for remain in europe you know to leave the bush approach will call to you support i mean we could all agree that the talks were being forced on

the national interest filmmakers so poor and rich are so make this week or so strong that it's making us more divided not more you know. they came from all over britain all against the very idea of bricks and given the strength the feeling on show here it's very difficult to see how this can be reconciled when and even if it happens i wanted to remain because i'm european i'm one of a cloud and i want to stay one of a club i don't want us to be little britain. there is a lot riding on what happens over the next few days now the prime minister to resign may face extra time to push through her deal she is facing the political fight of her life one but she may not survive may has blamed british m.p.'s for the bricks and obstacles and that has cost us support for another attempt at a vote on ho withdrawal agreement the marchers insist that nothing is

9:16 am
a muslim community still coming to terms with the tragedy that happened in a mosque they should have been safe here and now that's three year old boy he would have just paid plane or. you know when we hear noises and stuff we just sort of oh yeah what's going on and don't think that it's a gunman on the loose. it's just hard to surf well what i was praying in the mosque when the gunman came in they switched his first time back i fell down people started falling on me. and she just came in or they just started randomly shooting everyone i will since i was underneath the bodies the first couldn't get to me and then i stayed he went out it's still in get up. he came back in and it was a silence because almost no one was saying anything and it was it was like crazy you know and then i heard shots coming on from the fire inside the mosque there was also he's over there i was like ok just stay stopped stay calm and then suddenly
9:17 am
you should come and shoot really close to me there was a really not a fear in my heart and who's our phones were ringing and you find them and with your them. i could feel the blood over here is from the other person and i have to also feel the shots that were hitting the other bodies in front of me feel the pressure of the bullet i think it was there was a hole they were easily hit me then suddenly for two or three minutes ok it was you know because they couldn't hear is what's up because of the carpet and they were in front of me again it was another shocker and they literally hear the stabler doing shots. every ten minutes in groups of fifteen mosque leaders let people in the yard know that. there's now no physical sign of the horrors of eight days ago no blood no obvious bullet holes and virtually no noise. inside it looks and smells as though every wall has been freshly painted this coverings over all the carpets and the people inside are either standing in quite some time pleasure.
9:18 am
or the price for what a mosque reopening is the first time he's felt at peace in days it's been and horrific week since a lot of the last of the showed five bodies as well i'm happy that i could get that chance but also i'm sad as well that i lost my serve the last really close what was was very last i heard a major was. across the road in the park where this week's friday prayers were held a game of cricket the sound of bats on ball is the sound of christ church slowly moving on. andrew thomas al-jazeera cross church. hello again the headlines on al-jazeera aid agencies say they're running out of time to reach survivors more than a week after cyclonic die swept across southern africa more than seven hundred

9:20 am
raised our flags in both groups and have declared the end of this so-called cully faith in north and in syria this victory could have been a sheave were it not for the great sacrifices of our brave martyrs details of the mother reported to possible collusion between russia and donald trump's twenty sixteen campaign could be revealed to congress by sunday attorney general william barra says he'll write two reports one for congress and another for the public president has been silent so far at least fifteen people have been killed in a gun battle in somalia as capital attackers stormed the government building after detonating a suicide car bomb the armed group al-shabaab claimed responsibility for the attack a deputy government minister was among those killed. paris during the nineteenth straight weekend of. gathering on the. west shops were looted last weekend soldiers were deployed to guard public buildings
9:21 am
a move that's been widely criticized those are the headlines on. story coming up next to stay with us. really defeated us back to declare victory off the seas in the group final stronghold in syria how will that shake the end of the war this is inside story.
9:22 am
and i welcome to the program i'm nick clegg eisel once controlled territory in syria and iraq equivalent to the silence of great britain and imposed its version of islamic rule on millions of us will fight as we're finally defeated in iraq two years ago and it appears the dream of a so-called caliphate in syria is over two u.s. backed fighters declared what they call the one hundred percent territorial defeat . after winning the battle for bug following weeks of intense fighting kurdish led syrian democratic forces raise the flag over the final syrian town on the ice will control. we are now into the end of our military campaign with this victory we congratulate the kurdish are a christian nation we've defeated state from the face of the earth. thousands of people who escaped the fighting are stranded in refugee camps let's hear now from iran carney takes a look at the rise and fall of ice. this is what the end of ice or self declared
9:23 am
caliphate looks like those who fled isis last on clay village in northeastern syria say it's not the end of the state in the way i saw intended rather it's just the last place well i saw members offered any kind of coordinated resistance. i said doesn't want any families to leave we have tried. unsuccessfully until yesterday the situation under siege is back to fort our children are hungry our ford had finished the shouting water and so many people that died. are hungry and desperate the state that i saw intended one that allowed them to generate revenue through taxation and oil sands and to be able to pass laws was defeated in july two thousand and seventeen according to the iraqi government. that's when i saw was pushed out of iraq's second largest city mosul. at the same
9:24 am
time syrian democratic forces backed by coalition airstrikes mounted an operation against the group's last major stronghold the city of iraq and syria i saw lost that battle in october the same year. now all that remains of the group is pockets of fighters confined to small areas in iraq and syria analysts say the decline for eisel began with its attempt to take a town on the syrian turkish border in september two thousand and fourteen that's kabbani over there the siege of qurbani on the turkey syria border is considered to be a turning point in the battle against eisel turkey were very worried that they managed to get this close to the turkish border so they allowed both the kurdish peshmerga and free syrian army forces to use their territory to go in to combine in conjunction with the wipe e.g. they were able to force i saw fighters on the outskirts of the town for many it's considered the beginning of the end feisal caliphate in just
9:25 am
a few short years eisel lost its territory and by the end of two thousand and seven teams stopped referring to the caliphate in two thousand and nineteen the group still represents a major threat however by using supporters outside of iraq and syria the group has turned to social media to get its message across but platforms like facebook and twitter have closed thousands of isolated accounts the group now uses secure instant messaging apps things like telegram really have taken center stage so. if your kind of self respecting jehadi you probably are on telegrams because that's where all groups whether it's isis or al qaeda or h t s that's where they all share . the majority the vast majority of their propaganda that's where the key conversations are happening it surprised many that the us president donald trump has now declared the end of the caliphate saying he simply playing to his domestic audience there's more concern about beisel fighters the remain in iraq and syria and what they might be planning for the future iraq of which is
9:26 am
a on the take the serial port of. ok let's take this on now let's bring in our guests joining me right here on set we have more in kabul and who's the head of policy analysis at the arab center for research and policy studies over nothings we have a new rink she's a journalist and author of the book the war on isis on the road to the caliphate and in that land we have meir blum she's a professor at georgia state university and author of the forthcoming book small arms children and terrorism welcome to you all and i'd like to start with you here in the studio so we have this last piece of ice all territory reclaimed but what happens now is i will finish his i feel diminished is it rebuilding what threat does i still present now i think we have to be cautious now i think it's been it's a bit and if the early to celebrate the end off. as an ideology it me have actually
9:27 am
finished as a territorial entity but i think as an ideology is still very much alive in my opinion because i believe that if we don't tackle that all that what causes which had in the first this led to the emergence of ice and i think we are going to see it come back because so far we have seen like three generations of jihadists start. being from afghanistan one nine hundred seventy nine until the end of the soviet invasion there in the early one nine hundred ninety s. and then we have seen the second generation of jihadists after the us occupation of iraq and then i said in my opinion is the third generation of jihad this. image and fact as that action to the sectarian policies of iran that maliki government in iraq the security the heavy hand the security approach which syrian president bashar assad used against the protesters of the very early origins of the syrian
9:28 am
revolution so unless we deal with these issues i think isis was so alive. bloom in your view as well do you think it's not we haven't seen it completed yet it's not over yet i think marwan is absolutely correct i think we have to disaggregate there are two isis phenomena there's a phenomenon of isis that is a territorial entity that is no more but then the issue of the ideology and the spread of its popularity especially on social media something that we can't ignore you can't bomb an ideology out of existence the way you can the territorial strongholds that isis no longer in control do you follow me or the propaganda you've studied it you focus on it what sense do you have is the eiffel franchise despite this setback to them is the franchise still growing. the franchise is definitely still in existence there was a period of time after the loss of muscle that we saw a real decline in the
9:29 am
a number of media offices that i saw when isis was issuing its propaganda on the daily collection that we do a georgia state university we saw a real downturn and then about a month and a half ago a bunch of new channels began to emerge a you had in the segment beforehand mr cooper was saying the telegram is being used extensively and so not only is it telegram but we're seeing other platforms other encrypted platforms that are being tested for isis distribution of its material and after the christ church monster a massacre in the two mosques last week. who has not been heard of since september twenty eighth seen reemerged to issue a forty four minute audiotape to encourage people to rise up and take revenge for the massacres that happened by a white terrorist in new in new zealand right where the ideology is clearly some of
9:30 am
the nice we talk of that something we're going to come to a little bit later in the program but. let's look at the situation with ice along the ground what degree of organization is there left on the ground in syria it was a well disciplined and battle hardened force where will these fighters go on. all over the place to be quite honest we know that there is a number of pockets both in iraq and in syria not only in the. border area but also a bit deeper into iraq and there's people that are active with all the tactics that we knew al qaeda before off and isis in the beginning so they kidnap people and they ambush. cars day ambush checkpoints just about weekly and sometimes even more in iraq you get these kind of reports there's a lot of activity still around there are some people that's say that there is about
9:31 am
fifteen thousand. fighters still around in iraq and syria. and where they are we don't really know exactly although we know that there are pockets of in terms of recruitment for for future members of vizsla this loss of the caliphate you get this beacon if you like to many that helped rule thousands of fighters and now it's gone how does how does i sleep splay not a way to potential recruits when you think that we disillusionment you what people are looking forward to is that. there is a caliphate which is the place where all the muslims want to be this new beautiful new state now that is gone so but that's not the only thing the ideology the ideology is is still there amongst radical sunni muslims in iraq and isis had quite
9:32 am
a following amongst them it was not just that people were following them because they were going to get them back into power it's also religious and that religious aspect is still there when you want to come in but i think. it's very much like at the who for me because we have seen this many times before we have seen it for example after the end of the afghan war when when the afghanis they actually made it back home after the end of the afghan war and also where we have seen it once one more time when the united states invaded i'm going to stand when these you have this all saw the spirit of almost all over the world and then the world again and in iraq and after two thousand and three and now actually after i mean destroying that he laughed in syria i fear that many of those fighters actually would be will be making it back home to their own countries because don't forget
9:33 am
that after all the bulk of isis fighters actually are foreigners and we have some from europe some from the former soviet republic some from arab countries almost everywhere we have at least eighty nationalities within i salute and fars so i believe that some of them will make it back home and they are going to create problems for their own countries and now in my opinion where as i said has been in fact the third italian entity of ice that has been destroyed in syria now the hunt is going to be for those actually who have survived and they are going to strike back in my opinion because as i said earlier and this you deal with the root causes of this phenomenon we're not going to see that he end of it ok bloom what we know it was just referring there to the experience in iraq and what we learned from that experience because i was defeated or back in two thousand and seventeen in iraq but the group then evolved in kind of reinvented itself.
9:34 am
well there's two things the fact the every time one of these jihadi groups metastasizes there's a period of time where they recede and they are planning they are recruiting they're getting ready for the next iteration and so isis stems from the defeat of al qaeda in iraq in two thousand and five and two thousand and six but i think it's also important to add to what a moron in this new ring said is part of isis's ideology of the apocalypse does predict that there is a period of time where they have to recede back into the desert that there's a period of time where a doll because destroyed and then they reemerge and so it's not completely inconsistent with the way in which isis has predicated its ideology of like the phoenix emerging from the ashes it will come back it's also very important that we know that many of the the young people who were born for brought to the caliphate
9:35 am
the so-called. the cubs of the caliphate will be trained prepared brainwashed to into thinking that in the future there will be another iteration for isis and they will be able to fight again right so yes exactly that you have thousands of children who have been indoctrinated from a young age myth so how do you take that on how do you try and deal radicalize them . i mean there is there's really good templates that we have from different countries that have introduced to radicalization programs for children the first thing to take into account is i personally don't believe the children are radical so much as that they have been brainwashed and they parrot what the adults around them have said but there is a fantastic program in pakistan where the pakistani taliban had kidnapped children and had brainwashed them to train them many of whom to be a suicide bombers and this program has been very successful it's called sub own
9:36 am
which is dawn's first rays of light and what they do is they pair not just vocational training but also they teach them the proper form of islam which repudiates violence and then they also have social workers and therapists to treat the children's post-traumatic stress disorder so you have to have a multi-pronged approach but as you can imagine this is a very detailed program it's a little bit expensive it's about thirty thousand dollars per child and so because it's a pakistani program funded by the pakistani government of pakistani children there really isn't the kind of confusion we will have with the children of isis because no one wants to take responsibility for these kids either the countries in which they're present now or from maybe the countries that their parents come from very complicated and there's not the political will to take these children and try to give them a better future ok so the children is one thing
9:37 am
a very important thing you did what about those those dispersed those thousands tens of thousands of dispersed fight is just all over the place how do you how do you keep the pressure up on them to to stop them acting in the way that they might . well what it what is happening in iraq is that the military is active still the whole time trying to find them and we do get reports the whole time off. sleeper cells being found even weapon devils being found at the factory still it's still out there how do how do you get these people to change their mind is a very difficult problem in iraq also because the. the problems that were there when isis came in two thousand and fourteen they're still there the sectarian violence the sectarian. problems between the shiites and the sunni's have not gone
9:38 am
away actually they have only grown because it's the sunni's that have main mostly suffered from what happened their cities are still in ruins there's not enough money coming from back that to rebuild them so there's a lot of people and you see it more and more after more than a year of of no isis. the people are. dissatisfied they're angry with their governments and this week in mosul there was an accident with a ferry in which more than a hundred people died. this is not people going to the person who was was running the ferry know they go to the authorities they want the governor to go they say it's all because of the corruption so there is now finally talk that the governor might go that also the shiite militias that are still active in all of these sunni towns that they might have to go and that then perhaps there will be
9:39 am
some kind of normality coming back but it takes time and it takes money and it takes will and the problem here i think is mainly is there enough political will to solve this and to get iraq back on its feet right. oh and what you did exploring there is it makes it sound as if it's not just a difficult problem it's not an impossible absolutely it's really important what to the touch i just said i think we need to look at the ice not only as an ideology of fatah faisel is an ideology but the other part is brought this. we need to look at it as a violent protest movement against certain and he on on the ground and i think the damage to be a security approach is not that enmity for i said we cannot actually eliminate the ice and by only using military force we have to have another approach that is i know that americans are not really good and that nation building but i think we
9:40 am
have to think about it because i still was actually very much successful end of the routing people from within the sin need community in syria and iraq because what that it has said there was this community has been excluded mana generalized has not been actually given any share in power and wealth has been dealt with in a very violent way by the government of nouri al maliki and the government of. the united states and nation building this battle to take down the caliphate has cost billions of dollars in it and one just wonders if if we saw the same amount of investment in to go going into mission building or rebuilding in this case that might just help do the trick absolutely but i don't think president trump is going for that because you know he's not very much into this nation nation building i think he has already expressed his his willingness actually to to withdraw from syria as soon as this this war ends and we still we still need to know of course
9:41 am
what the american strategy is going to be in syria after the defeat of isis because it is not clear u.s. strategy i mean some time from say is that he wanted he wants to withdraw and then he he decides to keep some troops on. on the ground but at the end of the day the americans are really good and this nation building them we have seen in iraq actually down really good in the war and in blowing things up when it comes to nation building i think you have very poor performance has what role do you think the united states and the international community should play in this where i think marwan is absolutely right the president hasn't been consistent and he has withdrawn all the funds that were originally allocated to syria the ideal situation would be a kind of marshall plan for the middle east a what you saw after world war two in that the united states helped rebuild europe but at the same time just to play devil's advocate we have to look at the billions
9:42 am
