6:08 am
rallying for a second day they want the army to back their demand for the president to leave office in germany and quite reports back up it's the second day of a sit in at the sudanese army headquarters in khartoum the first time crowds have reached this part of the city since anti-government rallies began in december over the price of bread and escalated into calls for an end to president omar bashir his three decade will by now. they face the army compound calling for freedom of the protesters once the military to support their goal to remove the president i think it's time to crush. the military will have to side with the region and. a bit the correct. that's a possibility or they would have to take a stand at least. try to ask for the president to resign the same way
6:09 am
as happened in alt. but it appears saddam's military is not yet ready to go that far as the protests continued president bush met with leaders of the army to discuss the crisis the defense council which is headed by bashir says the protesters must be heard but warned against letting the country's like deeper into chaos. security forces have responded to the protest movement with the fees crackdown. dozens of people have been killed since the protests began according to an international human rights group but the army has not intervened riot police fired tear gas at protesters. and at one point which senses reported the sound of gunshots. the. president bashir has stepped down as head of his ruling party in the hope of calming the protests
6:10 am

6:11 am
eyes now on how the army positions. self and how they are likely to respond what do you anticipate might happen in the coming days in a way i think the nature of this brutal regime anything can happen obviously the higher rank of the army follow the president in his brutal approach to suppression of peaceful protests but we are relying on the middle rank and the lower ranks of the army who are sitting on protecting people actually we have the report of one officer being injured possibly a sniper shot him while he's protecting peaceful protesters so we think and we hope that the army does the duty or protect. the nice people. and bring in this to
6:12 am
a peaceful. but at the same time i suppose you can't underestimate how deeply ingrained integrated the army as an institution is in the kind of established political structure in the country right as a dictator of around the world this is the nature of the dictatorship and this dictatorship is a very very prudent psychologists who say they are operating in a system of group thing where dissent is not allowed but i think people will look at their moral inner self and join or protest and join our people to get this to the end. but want. freedom and change. and these are indeed lofty goals because we have seen president bashir survive these types of protests before he has been power for three decades now tell me what
6:13 am

6:21 am
but this time you know he was encouraged by your trumps the policies sometimes actions when trump decided to do the knowledge it was a most captive of israel. is that it's over until the. local buy a seat in hearts. why not if trump approves of that subset of anything that you know i ask on the mound they want you not just to google for the amount from him through condition all of these are going to over the local by the west bank and it looks set to be a tight race between netanyahu and his main rival former army chief benny gantz and they poll released on friday shows the prime minister is right when he could posse neck and neck with dance a centrist blue and white policy they are sitting even with twenty eight seats each party's missa care a majority of sixty one seats out of a hundred twenty to form
6:22 am
a government so they need to form a coalition to get across the line face with a strong challenger and corruption charges less and yahoo is going on the attack against his opponents the legal system and the media is critics saying he's again using race to divide vices are a force that has more from west jerusalem. four years ago benjamin netanyahu pushed the raisman who gambled to booze in a facebook video on polling day he used fears of the palestinian israeli vote to mobilize his own core support. for that but in this campaign israel's prime minister has deployed race as an issue unapologetically and much earlier in the piece as most controversial move drawing criticism from moderates at home and jewish organizations in the u.s. has been to engineer a coalition of smaller right wing parties that includes the supremacist jewish power one of whose candidates has been barred from standing for inciting racism against palestinians from all parties incitement racism against the
6:23 am
palestinians in general and the palestinian minority in particular against the leadership of the palestinian minority clear statements that they are not part of the political democratic game in israel. one of the whom you know whose lines of attack against his main rival blue and white party has been that they would need the support of palestinian israeli parties to block him from forming a coalition that was taken up by israeli model lawyer and t.v. presenter returned seller who used her instagram page to ask and what's the problem with the arabs calling on the government to tell people they lived in a country of all its citizens and all people are born equal israel's prime minister engaged telling his own six million strong social media following an important correction israel is not a country of all its citizens adding israel is the nation state of the jewish nation and it's alone israeli jews are concerned and in some cases with good reason
6:24 am
about the attitudes to israel of the duly elected arab leadership and therefore he's tapping into something that you know has some that exists and has some basis i would say for lots of israelis but he's taking it into. very disharmonious. direction's netanyahu denies that he's a few division insisting his likud party has served the interests of palestinian israelis benjamin netanyahu is throwing everything he can at this campaign as he battles to stay in office face down corruption charges and cement his legacy but his opponents say that legacy will be permanently tainted by the way he's chosen to fight this election sorry for al-jazeera questers. joining me now is a professor of international ations at regent university here in london so we have a promise from benjamin netanyahu to start an exciting parts of the west bank if he is reelected tell us more about why he's raising this now were as many promises
6:25 am
from the time you know there are broken promises from attorney i wouldn't take it too seriously two days before the election it's more than anything is it shows the pressure involved for sleep in jos a limb the presidency of the prime minister resign the pressure he needs to win the election not only because you want to stay in power because he has legal issues that we need to resolve and to stay in government this will help him to stay out of court and maybe out of jail so following it's kosher and he will do anything at this point. he out of the head what he's doing right now is strong to get some of the votes from the right he wants to be in the lead in is that it's most important thing is to look at the bloke's what is very rigidly looks the right and weak i think it's more complex than that but if the blue and white gets more votes and they think they can form a coalition this fourteen minute dangerous for me spawn to view situation so you
6:26 am
would like to a few seats small and think that he can form their own two wing coalition in order to do this in these the then shows in five parties like the jewish home that all have the poor missed the deaths what they want to do and then they will push nathaniel to do as you say he's under political pressure because he elect. he's under pressure from corruption charges as well how would vote as then respond to a place like this the thing is voters usually react to being respond to him and we saw it in the last election if old quite a few election and got the upper hand the question we've the co-op's in the issues with the fog with patients we finish the present something which is not by no stretch of the imagination left but central center right center left that can be in the film the thieves and we filed painted. by co-option chargers is under pressure because of this because they might just. gets the result of the
6:27 am
there won't but there's a problem is i don't think you really want to do that because you don't think you already perceive this if you look at the context of president trump recognizing jerusalem as israel's capital recognizing israel's control over the land heights there is a president things that you have with mr miller actually is a very cautious politician with the gut between what he says no two things these is massive if you look at this circle they're both an exception there were slick cases flew the other parties puts legislation in front of the knesset too and they expose of the west bank and he was against it so he's actually more careful about it but as you say the into the mission of conditions so different now in actually you might believe in what you say as though it's not necessarily is intention to begin with thank you very much from regent university and london yes and that's michael barrymore thank you. on out will than forty animals have been evacuated from
