a third time when the prime minister's breaks the deal if to resume may's agreements is approved the departure will be delayed until may the twenty second if not the u.k. it faces a crushing of the e.u. in two weeks' time. the head of the chinese tech giant while way has defended the company's commitment to security after facing further accusations of failing it to repair fools in technology united states has accused the company of being a security threat and that a campaign to blacklist. the united nations has appealed for calm ahead of the one year anniversary of palestinian protests and on the border fence with israel egyptian mediators a continuing their efforts to calm tensions between israel and the us this protest is prepared smartly occasion the delegation will remain in godfrey of the weekend but so far no breakthrough has been reached kerry forces has more now from gaza city. a telephone has been involved in the weekly border protest since the beginning his right leg had to be amputated after he was shot by an israeli sniper
8:04 pm
last april as soon as he was able he started going back again every week but this weekend's first anniversary he says is different. i'm not going anywhere why should i go on saturday there are going to be a lot of people killed tensions have risen again this week after a rocket fired from gaza hit a family home north of tel aviv injuring seven israeli airstrikes to follow destroy the offices of hamas as political leader among dozens of targets israel has built up ground forces on the gaza border threatening further military action. all israelis should know that if a comprehensive campaign is required we were entered strongly and after we have exhausted all of the other options those options center on egyptian mediation towards a deal understood to involve calm on the border and an end to rocket fire in exchange for an easing of israeli economic restrictions and the expansion of the un job program seeds of the tension and. still existed in gaza unless the the bigger
8:05 pm
problem for gaza which is a political in the completion and in the seed i expect that there will be a more rounds of confrontation the great march return protests began on the thirtieth of march last year after a call to action against the israeli siege by civil society groups in gaza since then gaza's health ministry says israeli snipers have shot and injured more than six and a half thousand protesters killing more than two hundred fifty people children journalists and medical workers among them a un investigation found that while some protesters used violence the vast majority were unarmed and peaceful it stated that israel had no justification for using live bullets and they were reasonable grounds to believe it had committed serious violations of human rights for twelve months now the protests in these border areas have been an expression of the sheer desperation felt so widely in gaza but increasingly in evidence has also been. his ability to dial them up and dial them down now with the israeli army staging a major show of force on the other side of this fence gaza's ruling faction has to
8:06 pm
decide how to calibrate this weekend's events in order to get what they most want major concessions out of israel and hamas is under pressure to get results earlier this month protesters went to the streets instead of the border over price rises and tax hikes hamas security put the demonstrations down with beatings and arrests but the core of those protests the same feelings of despair and frustration that for a year now and despite all the risks have brought thousands to the border week after week are a force that al-jazeera gaza while the one year anniversary comes amid a period of heightened tensions between israel and palestine as we've been hearing and gyptian delegation has been in israel and gaza trying to negotiate a peace deal after rockets were fired by both sides benjamin netanyahu is also trying to be seen as a strong leader head of israel's elections which is being held in less than two weeks so for more on all of this let's go now to our correspondent how much energy in gaza city and mohammed an important weekend there's
8:07 pm
a lot at stake here how are things right now. well nic let me tell you first about a statement that was just released by the office that this matter had the who's the political leader of hamas this statement confirms that hamas is still having meetings with this egyptian delegation that the egyptian delegation is continuing their discussions with hamas as well as other factions other palestinian factions and groups and he is saying that it's important to keep talking that he wants to see an end to the humanitarian crisis in gaza he says that it's important that the border is open that the fishing area in gaza is extended to there are job creation programs and also that humanitarian aid is allowed into gaza now as far as where things stand with the discussions what is right he has put out has not made clear exactly where house stands on whatever the negotiation is with israel at this moment essentially what he's saying is that all options remain open he says
8:08 pm
that we're at a crossroads that this is really going to be testing israeli positions and the responses to how massive demand is really going to decide what the path forward will be all of this happening on a day when it is relatively calm but there is a deepening sense of tension because nobody is quite sure what's going to happen tomorrow as you heard in harry's report it's going to be the year anniversary of the great march of return how mass is called for a million man march at the organizers the organizing committee of the million of the great march for a turn is asking for people to come out in droves and really everybody is wondering exactly what is going to happen on saturday mohammed thanks very much indeed there in gaza city where all the while our foreign affairs ministers are meeting in june is to finalize the agenda for sunday's thirtieth arab summit topics expected to be widely covered in to donald trump's proclamation recognizing israel's. golan heights as well as syria's returned to the arab league will moan bashar is observed
8:09 pm
senior political analyst joins us here in studio to talk about all the things and mo in france will this summit so events in the area will very much front and center of of well geopolitics if you like how much unity how much division we'd like to see at the summit about all these issues. the arab league is divided the arab leaders are divided on most of the important issues facing the arab world on the question of israel palestine and israel and syria and american decisions they were probably be in agreement but it totally at least meaning there's already we've heard enough declinations from a number of arab leaders important ones or not so important ones to know that the arab league final communique will probably say something about the call on syria and it's not israeli is jerusalem must be the captain of the next or the future of a sinister than that of israel the question is is that an agreement on what to do
8:10 pm
next no i don't think so and that's what's important in the end of the day you can always take a position but it will be symbolic unless there's some action to be taken afterwards but also it's interesting is that because we have this kind of background noise going on about dialogue with israel absolutely the u a e a minister of foreign affairs have stated that he regrets that the arabs are not in communication with israel although a good number of states ought in communication with their own and that did not help bring any you know positive results for palestine but there has been and there is since drum announced that there wouldn't be a deal of the century initiative after the israeli actions meaning after april nine . that some of the arab countries have been called on to step up normalize relations with israel and support this deal of the century unfortunately for the palestinians that the deal of the century is did not much of a deal it's more of
8:11 pm
a truck of the century in the sense that already is jealous of them is gone the refugees are gone the settlement issue is gone return to the ninety six seven border is gone and the settlements will probably be staying all of them so really not much there to talk about negotiating or to be happy about what the administration is offering is basically bestowing some kind of the just the missi on the present situation meaning the imbalance of power and a good number of other countries want to support it other countries do not ok just funny very briefly if you would let's move shift focus to algeria we are seeing thousands of people just gather in the street right now it's going to be another important weekend what's your assessment of where it looks absolutely there's there's a more paralysis than anything else and i think now we're clear that there are three not two pillars that are looking at what possible or what could
8:12 pm
be done and. it needs two of those pillars to come together either the army and the people the people and the presidency or the presidency and the army and over since the last few days the army and the presidency have split and that's what's new but the people don't trust either now certainly the presidency and dogma don't trust one another so what to do i think the best way forward of course is for the people to accept at the initial period whereby there would be clarity about the move towards democracy and whereby the army and the presidency would support this move towards democracy otherwise we're going to stay within the center of this as well see what happens as we've been seeing as hundreds of thousands gather in the streets and we'll have to say no thanks very much. three problems female activists in saudi arabia have been released from jail they spent ten months in prison and were freed after the second hearing of the trial which is still going on there among eleven women activists who say they've been abused behind bars for promoting

8:20 pm
has accused the company of being a security threat and led a campaign to blacklist it. i think the u.s. is the most powerful country in the world it's been the leader in many domains and the government has the attitude of a loser so i hope it can adjust its own attitude if we say that huawei would do something inappropriate such as spying that could put the survival of the company in jeopardy i don't think that should be allowed by the more than one thousand shareholders of huawei. affairs minister into this to finalize the agenda for sunday's thirtieth arab summit topics expected to be widely covered include donald trump's proclamation recognizing israel's sovereignty of the occupied golan heights as well as serious return to the air. study arabia has released three prominent female activists from jail as the trials are being held there among eleven women arrested last may for their human rights work and having contacts with foreign journalists and diplomats their women say they have been sexually harassed by
8:21 pm
prison guards. with headlines here on al-jazeera got more news coming up right off the inside story. it may be allied to a far right party but the austrian government says it is considering banning a far right movement the reason an alleged connection with the christchurch attack in new zealand vienna says it won't tolerate any kind of extremism but is anyone convinced this is inside story. the.
8:22 pm
hello and welcome to the program has a seeker the austrian government says it won't tolerate what it considers extremist ideology and it's now considering disbanding the far right identity hereon movement and investigating whether that group is a terrorist organization or that decision was made after it was confirmed the movement's leader i'm often sell not received nearly seventeen hundred dollars from the man accused of carrying out the christ church mosque attacks in new zealand but he's denied any time as to white supremacist brenton talent austria is the only country in western europe with a far right presence in government the leader of the right wing freedom party has distanced himself from the identity ariens and the country's chancellor sebastien current says radical ideologies on not welcome in austria. also because it's almost our position on this is very clear no kind of extremism whatsoever whether it's
8:23 pm
radical islamists or right wing extremist fanatics has any place in our country and our society now the identity tarion movement austria is part of a larger far right identity theory and movement which began in the early two thousand identity tarion ism originally started in france and spread to western europe north america and new zealand it aims to fight what it calls massive immigration and the islamization of europe identity terry and often attack multiculturalism and use islamophobia gretry they say they fear a systematic so-called great replacement of europe's white christian population by non europeans identity ariens are considered by some to be the new media friendly face of far right nationalism and focus on recruiting young people.
8:24 pm
so let's bring in our guests now to talk more about this joining us from vienna is michael bond a lot. a journalist author and experts on the far right in austria in berlin we have emily gore sensi research an advisory board member to the prosecution project a research lab studying political violence she is the creator of first vigil a database tracking far right criminality since two thousand and sixteen and joining us from washington d.c. cynthia miller professor of sociology at the american university and author of the extreme gone mainstream commercialization and the far right youth culture in germany welcome to the program so michael bombs bullets how prevalent is this identity hereon movement in austria and how connected is it to the current austrian government i mean they they are distancing themselves from this group but how how
8:25 pm
connected are they really you know right now there is this process of distancing especially from the far we don't party which is in government but in fact there are a lot of very close and proven ties between the f.p.o. which is in government and the i did to terri and movement is fascist group so what we could say is that the. group i did that area movement in itself is pretty weak that's maybe some hundred active with its but what is important aren't there is especially there are links to government parties emily gore says he what is it about this movement that appeals particularly to younger people. in europe and how how does it brand itself in a way that's different from some of the. traditional far right groups that that
8:26 pm
we've heard about in the past. well i think that one of the things that we see with this group is that they're very keen on their perception and their optics as they like to put it and we see a lot of young men in particular who join this movement as part of something bigger to be a part of and they see themselves as being slighted on many angles they're young they're white they're male and they sort of see this identity politics playing out in the media and pop culture and the identity movement is in a way its own form of identity politics targeting young men in particular cynthia how does this what what what what similarities do you draw between these groups in europe and what you're what you've seen and studied in the united states well these are all part of the same phenomenon mainstreaming of extremist aesthetics and some
8:27 pm
of the ideas even i think is am i was just saying you what you're seeing is that there's a softer kind of language a more coded kind of language so we're not going to talk about race we'll talk about european heritage where going to we're not going to talk about white separatism but we'll use the language of re migration arm emigration depending on how that's framed and so there's a way of coding and softening and it makes it seem less exclusionary although it's not and we had we heard some of that rhetoric didn't we in the in the charlottesville. rally that took place of course back in two thousand and seventeen and we had we had the chance for them saying jews will jews will not replaces just explain what that means and that how that's part of this what they called a great replacement. yeah the theory of the great replacement which you know comes from a french. far right scholar is it is about demographic change it's about
8:28 pm
this idea that i mean they also use the language of white genocide the language that that that white populations are shrinking ethnically due to demographic change and that through birth rate replacement there will be a shrinking an ever shrinking population of whites and framing that as a threat and i'll say that i think one of the challenges that that governments and communities across the world have to face right now is understanding that even if that's true we have to find ways to fit to to frame demographic change in other ways and offer an alternative to young people to to not see demographic change as a threat but instead to see it as an asset and a legal sense he i mean you mentioned earlier the this movement seems to largely appeal to kind of disaffected. white men who want to be you know part of something greater greater than themselves but it also appeals a lot of women as well doesn't it cuts across a cuts across a lot of demographics. yeah that's true there are
8:29 pm
a lot of women in the movement there's sort of a subset of the movement called the traditionalist movement and that appeals to this notion of of heritage whether it's american heritage or european heritage which is centered around the nuclear family and the woman's role in the household versus the man's role in the household and so it's there are a lot of men in the movement but there is a strong subset of the movement that is appealing to this sort of traditional notion of femininity this traditional notion of gender roles and so what we've seen what we saw in charlottesville in particular was in this in amidst this you will not replace us mentality there was also quite a bit of antagonism towards. people who are queer or gay or transgender there was a lot of antagonism towards this notion of the erosion of these traditional what
8:30 pm
they perceive as traditional values in our society and so they're this movement sort of likes to define those roles and have certain. i say. duties for different people in the movement you know the women are supposed to go out and they're supposed to serve the men who are out there on the street and in charlottesville we saw that women were required to carry the torches on august eleventh during the torch rally and they were forbidden from attending the rally at the park the next day. michael bumbler martin sound who's the leader. of this i.b.o. party that took money from the alleged shooter in new zealand he's saying that they have no damn no connection to this man or what he did and that they are a peaceful or be anti immigration group that has nothing to do with violence had
8:31 pm
does that fit in at all with what you've seen there basically it's clear it's a neo fascist group so if we talk about their stand on while answer not a while and that mainly a tactical stand that they have and like in public they try not to look very while and but what is clear is it was mentioned before does this ideology of a so-called great replace man which they say my the cure but they also say that they are the so-called lost china racial to prevent that so if you are or if you see yourself as a lost china ration to prevent something of course everything is allowed. to do that and they share also some common ideology like this share this ideology of
8:32 pm
supreme message they share this on the olive cheer of as was mentioned before the question of women's rights of the right and so on so there is some coming growled so i would say that if the i did that terry move men now tries to this then to itself from attacks like chris church that the tactic of this that and they have technical differences but the ideology there are various that many similarities and michael bumble and how much has mainstream politics in europe played a part in fueling these movements because in the past. they were often dismissed as as as kind of fringe groups with very small numbers and not really a threat but we seeing a lot of this a lot of this narrative now being taken up by some mainstream parties fear of immigration and so on. that's not a. i mean that's something that's happened quite
8:33 pm
a lot in the last few years how do we explain that well. it seems that there are some far right parties which take the topic of migration forward there are political agenda they are also in government in some countries like in austria in hungary in poland but what we shouldn't forget while we are sitting here are people are dying in the.
