home to you it hurts us deeply. you feel threatened to psalm list of all gone. to lunch alone is determined to stay in his homeland france despite the worsening situation experts say that anti-semitism is no longer soley coming from right wing groups but also from radical islam but it rarely has anything to do with religion and jews often meet hostility because they're seen as being part of an elite. todd reason it is the rejection of a community in this case the jewish community that is seen as being privileged as the group with the most influence on the powerful. he launched on them says he will never conceal the fact that he's jewish despite the dangers i make this huge it is because i've never hidden the fact that i'm jewish and i won't do that now when i
8:05 am
go to the synagogue for sure but i will my kippah and i will continue to do so much so initially. but when it came to the question of whether he would let his own children wear a cap on public in line couldn't give us an answer. israel meanwhile is embroiled in a political scandal just weeks before the country's general election prime minister binyamin netanyahu says he is the target of a witch hunt after israeli justice authorities announced they planned to indict him on corruption charges the move follows more than two years of investigations internet and yahoo over allegations of bribery fraud and breach of trust. champagne bribes and back door deals with billionaires. the charges against israeli prime minister binyamin netanyahu paint him as he did mistakes and corrupt. prosecutors allege netanyahu accepted over three hundred thousand dollars worth of champagne and cigars from hollywood producer arnon milchan and. another serious
8:06 am
allegation is that the prime minister eased business regulations for schall elevates a telecom mogul in return for favorable media coverage. the coverage of this scandal has certainly not played favorably for netanyahu. and this just six weeks away from national elections when he hopes to win a fourth term. for netanyahu the attorney general's recommendation to indict is no more than a political witch hunt. their aim is to whip up the public with ridiculous attempts to make me look evil. without the chance to refute them now but only after the elections is the root. of a lock up people ignore the spin i intend to continue to serve you as prime minister
8:07 am
for many years to come. after more than two decades in office netanyahu is only months away from possibly becoming the longest serving head of government in israel's history yet some israelis see the april ninth election as a good time for a change of leadership. because judge of the sufi dad i think this is the end of the road netanyahu should say goodbye and leave as fast as he can before he gets into more trouble. with the who know that he was good but that's it he should give the chance to young people and new people to do the work. others see no reason to abandon b.b. as he's affectionately known. and i prefer you know know to have somebody who has experience with going to you know hold israel in a good position and let the charges you know if i think. netanyahu has not been formally indicted a moment that will most certainly come well after votes are cast. yet with
8:08 am
a strong challenge from the new centrist blue and white party in the looming elections a slight shift in votes could mean the end of a political era our correspondent tanya kramer joins us now from jerusalem tanya netanyahu is calls he calls this forthcoming indictment a witch hunt given the timing could that be a plausible allegation. well that's has but yes been saying all along and accies lawyers had thought to prevent this announcement trying to push it for after the elections it has been a point of contention yes well whether it should have been announced now or after the elections and legal experts have been you know divisive over this with the attorney general's office probably opting for that the public has to know what the legal situation is so far off to prime minister before they go to the ballots now it's just less than a month a little more than
8:09 am
a month away from that election in israel what impact could these corruption indictments have could it and never know whose political career. but there could potentially be a big game changer for him but let's let's say that i mean he has been put on notice now the process will be that there has to be a hearing now that is usually scheduled when the attorney general announced this is an intention to indict him pending a hearing so a hearing usually takes place a couple of weeks or months depending on the case after such an intention is announced that will be probably only after the elections and only then there will be a final decision whether they will go ahead with the indictment but of course so technically and legally speaking the prime minister doesn't have to step down there's no you know legal consequence right now he can continue can even run again in the elections but of course all eyes are now on his political career what does it mean
8:10 am
for him and also what does it mean for the elections know will be see a shift of protests maybe that are now but uncertain about his political. career you know whether you can stay on as a prime minister was all these legal problems and whether they will shift to other parties netanyahu certainly has the threat of the indictment hanging over his head going into this election the timing seems almost perfect for his main challenger benny gantz could his camp pose a credible threat to netanyahu. well they do pose a credible threat because if you look at polls over the recent weeks they have been either head to head with that he could. have overtaken him and this is now the big question whether this indictment will sway some of the voters from the right wing of luck to what this new center alliance so but at the end of the day and is what
8:11 am
it's all about being able to build a coalition and that is still to see whether you know also the coalition partners of mr netanyahu will stand by him as you have said they will do but i mean it's all politics after all that could change and whether there will be enough movement of voters from that he could block to this center right alliance but it's certainly so i talked to some of his to quit supporters stay said no matter what you will stand by mr netanyahu i talked to others who said no after ten years we think we need a change so the only thing is sure here that this possible indictment is probably what will be at the center stage of this election campaign trial here thank you so much should you know your time your craver there in jerusalem. now to some other stories making news around the world today the united states has offered a one million dollar reward for information on the exact whereabouts of one of

8:15 am
sanctions maybe removing the sanctions that have hampered the civilian economy and the livelihood of a people we will permanently and completely dismantle all the nuclear facilities in your area including plutonium and uranium in the presence of u.s. experts working jointly would take nations from both countries. at the summit but it's trump and kim had been keen to stress their woman personal relationship eager to put the insults of the prost behind them. up as we move forward i think it was a good development that the president indicated neither the u.s. nor north korea seem intent on raising tensions so i don't think we're going to have a return of the fire and fury or the concerns of imminent hostilities at least for the forseeable future no deal this time but trump insists the u.s. can still do something special with north korea. now to the kashmir

8:19 am
a friendly tell us about their game that's what terry martina vos techmeme burke is the new germany coach is currently find shooting her squad with the world cup just just under one hundred days away from now she's got pedigree she was the former switzerland coach she's got real pedigree on the international circuit and she took her scored its a play against france last night now the game's only goal came courtesy of lir schuler a hard fought victory germany were at their clinical best france actually had more possession and more more shots during the game so this is a real it's a real market germany have laid down with a little bit of time still to go to the tournament say look you know we're still among the favorites for this term ergo well i mean some are still a little ways away. germany is looking good at this particular moment but are they really considered one of the favorites at this point what traditionally germany have always been one of the powerhouses of women's football alongside the usa so really those are the main two favorites for the summer's world cup but of course you can't rule out france the hosts and also australia and england have both made
8:20 am
great strides in women's football over recent years and so they'll be considered dark horses for the summer storm and now last check limburg does of course have one of the most amazing squads to choose from and v.w. actually caught up with a hopeful member of this summer's squad and katherine barrett she's got an incredible story she actually was diagnosed with cancer in november twenty seventh seen before her way back not only onto a football pitch but actually into the germany scored in just twelve months so let's take a look at that v.w. exclusive right now. back in november twenty seventh teen uncut tween bag-o. was in the prime of her career she had won the german bundesliga competed in the champions league and moved abroad to top clubs in france and england but then came a huge setback at age twenty seven she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer five was a shock because as a footballer you don't think about it because you have to live like
8:21 am
a healthy life. you do sport every day so it was quite a shock when it came to fighting the disease it was inspired by her efforts to get into the starting eleven. round you have to five every day or even my position i have to try every training session to be on the sunday on the pitch so and as a goalkeeper we have a i don't know why we have about repetition we have crazy people. i wouldn't say i am but yeah i think the mentality for. me. and it showed what was most remarkable about her recovery was the timeline. diagnosis was on the seventeen november and then on the operation and then on the twenty first of january my
8:22 am
idea. and off the. one for february i was on the bed i played my first f.a. cup game again. it's a story that could become even more special if burger fulfills a dream of playing at a world cup in june. so obviously wants to be back on the squad a very inspiring recovery story how do you rate your chances of actually getting into the squad well i think first and foremost it's worth mentioning she's just a tremendous goalkeeper you know she's won the bundesliga but to be a potsdam she's jihad stints in the champions league for paris and jim and she moved to birmingham city in england where she was named as part of the p.f.a. team of the year and just recently moved to champions chelsea so she's obviously a goalkeeper of class but as we've just seen a report that she says this goalkeepers mentality is battling spirit and she showed her fight against cancer will probably be one of the biggest advantages that she
