was attempting to promote you could be ahmed back to his home country of somalia which he'd left when he was reportedly a young boy. was a little of the buyer. but his screams alerted the other passengers on board to the fact that he was being made to leave the country against his will so fellow passengers leapt to his defense he says he was was forget exactly what it was just got was short because it was minutes later home office officials scored off the plane and back to you jurisdiction. it's now been revealed the passengers helped to keep in the country is a convicted gang rapist in august two thousand and seven he brutally assaulted a sixteen year old girl along with three other men in
1:03 am
a premeditated attack he was sentenced to nine years in prison and he was released after four one of his fellow gang members has since traveled to syria and died fighting with islamic state terrorists the passengers on the plane are unlikely to have known ahmed's dangerous criminal history and the loss of security was never she was. asleep was only deleted the room was very little now thanks to their intervention you have made it is thought to be back in a u.k. detention center while government officials tried to place him on another flight his lawyers now have time to appeal the decision to deport him the u.k. isn't alone when it comes to citizens disrupting government approved deportations early this year in sweden a student activist refused to take a seat on a plane until a failed us sign. seeker who is being sent back to afghanistan was taken off the
1:04 am
flight and she live streamed the entire incident. and it's. going to get killed it was later reported the man had been sentenced for assault the u.k. home office says that all foreign nationals who were sentenced for a crime and abuse the u.k.'s hospitality should be in no doubt of the government's determination to remove them but the government may not have banked on citizen activists being just as determined to let him stay. earlier we spoke with former chief executive of the u.k.'s immigration advisory service keith best he believes that cases like this one should not be decided by the public but rather by the courts and i think this example shows how wrong people can be although they may have sympathy for somebody particularly if they're being manhandled in a rather aggressive manner to get them on an aircraft in order to deport them i can
1:05 am
understand where people sympathy might lie but of course as we've discovered with this case those sympathies may be very misplaced if they are foreigners want to use that line for deportation cases then they have to do a balancing act between complying with the legal regulations or look at existing human rights safeguards and to make sure that they are fully articulated in favor of somebody who might otherwise be removed wrongly. u.s. news network n.b.c. is under fire after showing remarks by president donald trump on the american civil war out of context making him look like he was praising a pro-slavery confederate general the outlet only corrected its reported day later artie's caleb maupin looks at how the us mainstream media is creating its own narratives. in the liberal side of american media donald trump was in hot water
1:06 am
they had him on video praising robert e. lee the pro-slavery confederate general during the us civil war they even had video evidence for their claim of obvious racism it also gave you. a general. who was incredible he drank a little bit too much. you know what i'm talking about. so robert e. lee was a great general. but it turns out that n.b.c. misrepresented the comment the general the trunk called incredible was actually ulysses s. grant the general of the union army now grant was anything but a racist in fact after he became president he even sent troops to fight the ku klux klan years after the civil war was over and b.c. had to run a retraction and show the full sound by a general. who was incredible he drank a little bit too much. and his name was green general.
1:07 am
anti trump faction smelled blood and went into overdrive they ran all kinds of headlines about trump praising the confederate general even said he was a big fan of general lee they even quoted distant descendants of lee denouncing the president and yet again our president is long in showing us his true colors he is showing us that he supports an idol of white supremacy and hatred robert the least for the continued in. our bodies but the pro trump crowd was watching a completely different movie the news in right field was that trump was innocent victimized by scheming liberals so folks in the anti trump camp got confirmation that the donald is a racist meanwhile those in the pro trump bubble got confirmation that the liberal press is out to slander him and that's just one example of how americans seem to live almost in two different reale. with loyal audiences getting sucked in by
1:08 am
different narratives do you look even in a place like tennessee were two brothers and now who came out in favor of calvin on his being hurt by being a bit of work out all because all of the activists energy all the money are like sunscreen you you should have it against him this is not going to be a walk in the park for democrats the way the democrats thought it was going to be even a few weeks ago and i'm not sure that leading into a heavily contested midterm election you want you're going away message to be we don't like to process the justice kavanaugh and also we're not really sort of native american with was before this didn't seem like too great take what nasa just a little bit more and has called president tom's she took a d.n.a. test showing she has does stand native american ancestry scientists say the average european american is zero point one eight percent native american so that it makes more and less native american than the average european american saudi arabia maybe a tenuous ally but they are still an ally in the most volatile region in the world
1:09 am
but it may be that we've reached the point now where we have to reassess this relationship and we we may not need the saudis as much as we thought we did so we're here in liberal new york city and we're going to see if average new yorkers have even heard some of the headlines that are all the rage among conservatives trump praising robert e. lee did you hear about that you know. possibly my memory fails me i don't really follow the news especially when it comes to politics you did hear about yeah i don't really have much fruits are in the idea here to reach actually but i hear what he had to say about the n.b.c. says they actually got it wrong he was praising it was he's s. grant that's who he called incredible to hear that yeah. action i mean that they got. i mean i can't say whether they were wrong or right but like when it comes to him it's like you know it raises like you and i me when this when we him is always wrong right now to some donald trump is a heroic champion making america great again to us. others he's
1:10 am
a power mad fascist inciting bigotry no matter what you think of donald trump it's pretty obvious that americans are more deeply polarized than ever before and warring media narratives are deepening that division caleb mopp and r.t. new york donald trump has branded n.b.c.'s coverage dishonest claiming that the channel deliberately made him look bad and we discussed the situation with investigative journalist max blumenthal who says americans are being left none the wiser by the news coverage point worth making about fox and m s n b c is that their formula is to cover a very narrow range of topics so if you watch these networks you probably aren't going to know much about what's happening outside of american horse race politics so no matter which network you're watching you are going to wind up less informed unless you're completely concerned with the different policy intrigues going on in washington that's why
1:11 am
a lot of americans are turning to alternative media as well as foreign media and why foreign media is under threat in the u.s. why this network for example has been forced to register as a foreign agent pretty apparent that the national security state in the u.s. doesn't want to merican to be particularly well informed about foreign policy and what's happening on the ground in yemen or in palestine or latin america. canadian transgender athletes is facing a backlash to winning the cycling world championship rachel mackinnon who was born male who finished in the race in los angeles this sunday becoming the first of a transgender woman to win gold in this competition but her achievement was met not only by applause. unfair advantage and not to be celebrated look at the difference in size and muscle mass of course you were going to win imagine being
1:12 am
the woman who came forth knowing that you should have a place on the podium amazing i was so if used at reading these i went out and challenged to eight year olds at a one hundred meter race guess what i only went in with. first time running in an eight year old's race to the winner denies the accusations saying she was forced to suppress her testosterone levels in accordance with competition rules on transgender athletes a hormone specialist mikhail adults of age told us what such rules are based on what in mysore is not in ukraine it's important to consider the specifics of this particular sport every athlete is a separate case they look at their anthropology and hormone profile and then we then decide if they may participate or we decided to debate the issue with our guests. what i find strange is the hue and cry being raised over transgender athletes but not over other athletes who clearly have certain advantages over
1:13 am
fellow competitors i think the way in which transgender athletes are being singled out is very very unfair and wrong now of course we do need to look at whether transgender athletes do have an advantage which is unfair and gives them an advantage over others but i don't think the research really substantiate that at the moment female athletes themselves fear feel that there are some particular disadvantage in competing somebody who's gender has been. in some cases changed there are all kinds of advantages that athletes have for sprinters having fast twitch muscle fibers definitely gives you an advantage it isn't just this issue it's a whole range of issues about where genetic and other biology or factors may give a particular athlete the edge over others i certainly think there should be as far
1:14 am
as gender interests. situations. going further the man i think would be an enormous task of. god proportion hopefully there would be some kind of consensus and we could establish a regime for all sports where. the athletes who are transgender and intersex but also those who perhaps have other special unique physical attributes or biological or genetic up tributes they could be included. the mayor of a small french town or an island off the country's atlantic coast is waging war on fast food giant mcdonald's which hopes to open up branch there for the mounting cost in legal fees of his anti big mac campaign already into its fourth year is dividing locals. i.
1:15 am
i. we were elected because we ran on a platform of ecological and social transition the model practiced by this kind of company runs counter to that we do not endorse that model. to go big. because. people can eat whatever they want who am i to judge but we were elected on this platform so we have an alternative to this model.
1:16 am
i think on the island such as always we should instead encourage french businesses there is another way to create jobs if you think about the quality well we all know . the only issue which is there is this kind of ecological extremism in play now today mcdonald's means creating more jobs reviving the town plenty of stories still coming your way here on the program today including dozens of palestinians are injured by israeli rubber bullets and tear gas during a protest in the west bank it's a demonstration against the shutting down of a school and more on that after the break. manufacture consent to public wealth. when the ruling class is protect themselves. when the final merry go round.
1:17 am
in all middle of the room. you know world of big. lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smart we need to stop slamming the door. and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks.
1:18 am
in truth a morning program hero nazi dozens of palestinians were injured after the israeli army fired rubber bullets and tear gas at students under fishbowls who were protesting the closure of a palestinian school that served two villages in the west bank the closure means five hundred children will no longer receive an education. about the israeli army is firing tear gas and sound forms there are children why just because palestinian students come here to learn patience. it is tonight's even the right education. that they are now and they're going to.
1:19 am
tell you we brought our children to the school because we want them to study just like other kids all over the world the decision to close the school violates their right to education and we reject that. the israeli army says the reason for school closure is that some of the students have been throwing stones from the school claiming that the facility had produced acts of terror the idea is to clear the school a closed military zone in aid agencies warn that there are at least sixty one schools in the west bank that are currently under threat of demolition from israel they see it as a violation of our children's basic right to an education or the editor of the news website or palestine chronicle ramsey brut says the demolitions are actually a pretext for seizing more territory for illegal israeli settlements the need land and the need the land of the need the other villages and this is why the targeting
1:20 am
of these of these areas so basically it usually starts with the confiscation of palestinian land then the targeting of anything in the city and who does protests then declaring more and more palestinian land to be closed off military military zone and even sure these closed off areas are joined by or are added to the jewish settlements that are in constant expansion this is a story that's really goes to the heart of israel even couldn't a solution of the west bank this is about building settlements and of course that would point every possible pretense in order for them to put the blame on the palestinians who are fighting for their wife and they are either for their. ecuador has agreed to partially restore internet access for wiki leaks founder julian assange has been denied that since march however he's been given some strict guidelines on how to behave online auntie's isa ali has details sources close to

hundred eight peace agreement which ended all the sectarian violence is what's causing the issue what the easier once and is kind of going up against this very very issue what the in you want is to have this back stop which would be a guarantee of like sort of having the the europe starting at the side of the border we cannot have a border which is going to be disrupting business and we cannot push that border back into the irish sea so there you just to make sure i get it correct that you you want northern ireland part of our oil northern ireland to be part of the customs union still to have free trade in the u.k. so you know there would. be the integrity of the u.k. member the time before when i said it's not really brics it's really x. it because it's the u.k. and the u.k. is not the great there's the greater land mass of great britain it includes northern ireland yes so because of those peace accords remember that there was a lot of violence around that.
