cities. that was. friday night the united nations security council at washington's request held an emergency meeting to discuss the situation in iran russia criticized the move saying that iran should be left alone to deal with its internal affairs and that was echoed to by a number of other members of the security council as cullum open explains now the meeting opened with nikki haley she is the representative of the united states and she voiced strong support for the iranian protesters calling them courageous talking about the usa quote standing in solidarity with the iranian protests you
10:03 am
also went on a tirade against the iranian government the united states stands unapologetically with those in iran who seek freedom for themselves prosperity for their families and dignity for their nation we will not be quiet no dishonest attempt to call the protesters puppets of foreign powers will change that if the founding principles of this institution mean anything we will not only hear their cry we will finally answer it we then heard from the representative of france and france is a country that generally agrees with the united states in u.n. security council proceedings however he talked about how this is really an internal matter in iran. well however worrying the events of the last few days in iran may be they do not constitute per se a threat to international peace and security change in iran will not come from outside it will come from the iranian people themselves it was know when you see
10:04 am
this initiative is not a good one. we are witnessing an attempt by some delegations to bring to the attention of the security council issues that do not fully correspond with the mission of this body. and the security council should not discuss the issues of any country or its human rights issues the russian representative questioned why this meeting was taking place and why it was probably not a good idea for foreign countries to be escalating and promoting unrest in iran the chimps to show up at it why did the u.s. call for an emergency meeting if the political situation in iran has stabilized we should thank washington in this case since america's energetic can provide could have messages to the arena and people who have brought them closer together in their anti-american feelings we get the impression that some logically unexplainable allergy is keeping the us blind to a rational evaluation of what is happening in the country they simply want to believe what they're seeing is true. now the iranian representative he talked about
10:05 am
how iran is a democratic country in his view and argued that people in iran do have the right to protest however they don't have the right to do so violently and pointed to the usa being involved in a fomenting these acts of violence on the meeting kind of ended on conclusively so people are wondering exactly what came out of the meeting why did this meeting take place and people are wondering exactly what will happen next as we continue to hear support for these protests in iran by the leaders of the united states very soon on those reaction from the iranian foreign minister given his thoughts of the meeting he called it a foreign policy blunder by the trumpet ministration meantime america's top diplomat spring quizzed over washington support for the iranian anti-government protesters. you've said that you want to support quote. elements in the country that will lead to
10:06 am
a peaceful transition of government that sounds like regime change but i think the mirai and people have suffered under this regime we do not support the traditions of power but we do support peaceful transition of power. we discussed events in iraq with political analyst has sonali he says america helped to foment unrest in the first place. the reality is that many of the people who've been arrested are from. inspired groups and you've got these type of people who came in from the outside from places like. afghanistan very well supported by the swathes of sort of tweets that were coming out of washington now this is america israel saudi arabia interfering at least from a distance within iran's internal affairs yes iran has got economic problems absolutely but a lot of those economic problems we mustn't forget because the commitments to
10:07 am
america. have been flagrantly the d.j. c.p.o. we just signed america turned around and put some new sanctions on iran which is ridiculous in other business in the united nations is now allocated an unprecedented fifty million dollars in aid to yemen to try to alleviate the huge humanitarian crisis there the organization says it's deeply concerned by the desperate situation in that country yemen's civil war broke out back in twenty fifteen thus far it's claimed over ten thousand lives and left the economy in ruins according to u.n. estimates now some twenty two million people need humanitarian assistance with more than eight million close to starvation saudi arabia's blockade of that country in combination with its airstrikes also crippled the poverty stricken country's infrastructure it's allowed for devastating outbreaks of cholera and other diseases it's not just humanitarian organizations trying to do their bit to intervene to save lives in yemen and raise awareness of the plight of its people for her part
10:08 am

10:10 am
honestly i think. we are all suffering from this crisis only god knows how hard it is for us i used to have a boat that i used to make my living by but from the moment the crisis broke out i've been jobless for six months i sold the boat but i couldn't pay off my debts now i'm looking everywhere for my daily bread. and i've been attacked both on the island senate seat they have shot up several boats and killed the crews and the gears sank and they died because of that tax and aggression against you and then. one. leg so they send you a new book out about donald trump fire and furious coldest rocketed to the top of
10:11 am
the bestsellers list this weekend it claims to reveal who the president really is and what it's like to be on his team. we've got a book to talk about here it is and all of the three details trumps rambling and it's alarming repetitions had significantly increase he was no more than seventy rhetoric when he has to be in the white house they took him to bed it's six thirty ish really fit you can do this job driving a dog very curious and a moron and even he should not be president he's not going to make it he said he's lost is. not surprised they didn't take long to give his response saying contrary to what the book claims he is mentally strong and not just clever but quote a genius well the book quotes former senior advisor to the us president steve bannon one of the many people to leave through the big revolving door last year of course here is just a few claims in the book is written that trump found the white house daunting at first went on to say that his own behavior contributed to washington's dysfunction
10:12 am
furthermore it says it was the us leader himself who was behind leaks of personal data and it revealed that trump also enjoys eating cheeseburgers in bed there's a mental picture samir a car has been taking a look at why the book is proving so popular. readers have been promised an inside look into the q.c.'s scandals of the trumpet ministration and liberals all over the country have flocked to bookstores to get their hands on a copy and president trump's lawyers even tried to block the book's publication which made it even more sought after so in this small bookshop we're talking record numbers they had eighty four copies just this morning and they were sold out within six minutes and yes people came out in the freezing cold to get their copy of fire inferi inside the trump white house has been the book of the day the question of the day i mean just has it's all we're doing and it has been a lot of fun really hectic all the phone calls people in the store had someone compared to almost like harry potter level like
10:13 am
a new release crazy like it has been that fun and that hectic so why is it flying off the shelves if you're looking to confirm you're already in a bias this is the book you want to read i'm not a fan of the president at all i just want to find out what's in it and sort of satisfy my curiosity you know it's. tough for us booksellers to get a copy but as soon as i can we will be giving it a read however the authors reliability has been questioned and several claims in the book have already been dismissed as false our position is very clear that we think it is full of false and fake information but who cares if the claims in the book are true or not fire and fury will stay in the headlines as long as it protrudes trump in a negative light but with all the excitement surrounding the book everyone seems to have forgotten the last time this happened the infamous trumped us year that's now practically synonymous with fake news but also fair in times of war well at least in the media war against trump samia khan r t washington d.c.
10:14 am
. media and legal analyst told us why this is a gold for the talking heads of the mainstream media the. nobody cares except the people in the mainstream media who can now focus on it they don't have to do any research they don't have to do any heavy lifting all they have to do is pick out the particulars portions that they like it's a rehash of the same story it's not substantive it doesn't deal with any of the problems that really affect the country or the world it's easy it's easy to digest low hanging fruit it's perfect for that what effect is it going to have absolutely nothing the people who hate him the people who love drama love him now there's going to change. but most of the jewish community in france say they don't feel safe in the country anymore they say they regularly face anti semitic abuse and concerns are growing to the situation could worsen though in the wake of donald
10:15 am
trump's recognition of jerusalem as the capital of israel show dubai and secure reports. saying the song to me used to be a whole lot of the jewish community in france but it's a hot it's no longer beating french jews fleeing the paris suburbs to escape a royce in anti semitism. i was viciously attacked with a machete by an individual because i'm jewish. every day it's hacked they enjoy it's. really cool islamist stock a knife in my chest i'm very scared for my family and myself. i'm scared of going outside and showing my face i'm forced to wear a camp every day to hide my keeper. not all of these attacks made the headlines and according to one jewish organization they just the tip of the iceberg every day is what you are people that every day there are people that are inserted
10:16 am
we can be the worlds. and we don't mind but when we heard. you can be. many families have decided to quit france altogether jews started leaving the country in record numbers back in two thousand and fifteen following a terror attack on a cruise ship supermarket in paris. if you are. in two thousand and fifteen almost eight thousand jews left france in two thousand and sixteen another five thousand flights and over the last decade more than forty thousand have packed their bags that's almost ten percent of the jewish population in france in few of the kids.
10:17 am
in france and with a problem in europe there are almost no drool that all living. so. it's terrible with everything but that he says that europe is continuing by piece what. i woke up last month from his prime minister i cannot reach the scale of the problem in our country anti semitism is a lie if it is not new it is ancient it is not superficial it is well rooted and it is a life and it hides always behind new mosques attempts to justify it so through diverse reasons that statement just came a few days off the door will trump made the exclusive decision to recognize jerusalem as the capital of israel a decision triggering anti israel protests across europe and laying the ground for more semantic attacks.

seems to be on the way up again now forty percent recently economy around the sixteen thousand dollar mark up there's always a twenty last year if you compare it to the journey so. bitcoin has hit a financial milestone not reached in almost four centuries it's taken over the title of biggest bubble in history for what was known as mania in the netherlands. value has surged by around sixty times in the last three years that's considerably faster than shoot bulbs in the seventeenth century which were at one point worth ten years of a skilled craftsman. back then prices were driven by greed fear of missing out but as more people bought into the bulbs for quick profits a flurry of sales collapsed the price and left many with crippling debts is being
10:21 am
called the digital of the twenty first century as the same pattern emerges that fear of missing out in new investors piling in critics say the perceived value of the currency like the church is being counted out of the ever growing army of bitcoin believers say it's here to stay operational market in full flow around the clock and new places all over the world ready to accept the crypto currency as payment even a church in london is happy to accept donations of the virtual kind with the size of the bit coin market already surpassing some countries economies included in for wendell banks are being left behind but as history shows us is usually followed by bust so is bitcoin about to wilt. yeah just through the times or is it just too risky will some people have struck it rich with a virtual currency there are those internet entrepreneurs the winklevoss twins there must a billion dollar fortune in that guy that teenager you versus just a little something from his grandmother few years ago made

a millionaire over it and then the mystery man of course invented the sub occurrence in the first place reportedly holds around fifteen billion dollars worth but it's not all up other people don't have anywhere near such success there is sob stories what about the money through thousands of because in a way when his hard drive broke in twenty thirteen but then people weren't talking so much about it famously that man that paid ten thousand bitcoin to for two painters about that bottom submitted gesture and then there was this guy jailed for money laundering after he sold his big con to a person involved in illegal drugs you've got to take care for more on the pros and the cons neil harvey was joined by two heavy hitters so to speak in the field. i am sure that it is their level in fact is probably the biggest problem ever seen in my career as an investor and i've seen quite a few bubbles and i'm familiar with the psychology that surrounds them you know big quiet it took a rocket ship up and it's going to come down even faster because there's not a bubble bricklin actually is the pin that's the pin that's popping the legacy

financial systems bubble. over a printing of money. over valuation of a stock that the beauty of it the supporters say stay centralized it's everything that banks know the vid quite itself is not to take knology could be the reward but you don't need big point to have a block chain there are all these other cryptocurrency is that have block chains and they don't use big court and you can use block change for anything about the fundamental consensus the logic of what she is going with that large of the largest block sort of the only one that matters the one that does the most no it doesn't the most people the right is the one that's most trustworthy you know the small if you're going to block in your pocket and not have all but a sense of model algorithm work meaning you don't have any minors and you don't have any consensus that doesn't mean a thing that's a really really slow data book is what and that's what it is but what is it what is the value what is the inherent value of a bit coy what it what can you do with a bit quiet to make it worth seventeen thousand dollars if i have one big point
10:24 am
what could i use it for what could i do with it you could buy anything as a matter of fact i could buy gold out of this guy and i got a pack full dot com and i could buy gold at this guy go buy gold at sixty percent off with the situation where now dangerous is that you know what people are getting and spending savings on but look it is very dangerous for people what is it is terry you think they're going to get rich quick because right now the only reason that people are buying big quiet is because the prices going up and what it turns around that they're going to be selling it for the same reason. i mean right now is a broken bethlehem off to palestinian part. testers try to block the convoy of the local patriarca greek orthodoxy that he's facing recent backlash from palestinians for allegedly selling property in jerusalem for the jewish community tomorrow meantime of course marks christmas day in the orthodox calendar. i i.
