8:01 pm
it's 3 am here in the russian capital and saskatoon to make international news. and fast forward this hour exit polls from israel suggest prime minister benjamin netanyahu could now really fail to secure a majority in parliament voting ended several hours ago in the country's 2nd parliamentary election underneath this year. the latest updates from middle east correspondent for the slip. netanyahu is 2 parliamentary seats behind his main rival for my i.d.f. chief pentagon says same to lift blue and white party whether that in the end transpires to be correct or not certainly netanyahu does not have enough seats to form a comfortable coalition majority he needs 61 out of 120 seats so he's going to have to form a coalition potentially not only with his right wing support base in the big question
8:02 pm
mark as well who can he actually approach to form a coalition government with if he current and if maybe against content that seems to be the prognosis certainly at this stage the country could see itself heading for a 3rd election don't forget the previous election was back in april and that was an election that because netanyahu was unable to win he forced in another election this time around and that's why we've seen critics say that the era of netanyahu is over he hasn't yet addressed his supporters he hasn't yet addressed reporters we hear that he's on the phone already trying to put together some kind of coalition there is a 3rd some areas that have a door lieberman who is the leader of the israel our homeland party put forward in his speech he said that the only option now was for a government with netanyahu with the blue and white party whose leader is benny gantz and with lieberman because lieberman did not join netanyahu 6 months ago we
8:03 pm
having the elections this time around and it's questionable whether lieberman will again join an attorney or who need them and certainly has presented himself in a very powerful position he's doubled the amount of support he came in with at the exit polls of kuwait some tame knesset seats now earlier we managed to speak to one of his members of parliament. to a big. week for the oath to go to her. for the hour according to which we just saw work the suv that looks a little to earth so her. yes the words of the father of the. now that is one scenario there could see a 3rd round of elections been prevented but the likelihood of that happening has a huge question mark over it because you have these political leaders that really are at odds with each other for weeks now they've been throwing mud at each other and so more questions than answers in terms of how
8:04 pm
a coalition in terms of what this m.p. suggests could really function and work we can't ignore donald trump can we paula who threw his backing behind the current prime minister what effect do you think that's had a so be think it help to netanyahu he used images of him solve to the american president in his election campaign but it wasn't enough essentially to see netanyahu when the selection and perhaps part of the reason is that donald trump is more in boiled in his own political issues this time around back in april just before the polls were held he made that dramatic announcement that he recognized the israeli sovereignty of the golan heights this time around he hasn't said anything to that effect so perhaps that saw potential support for netanyahu to climb we heard from dmitri dionne of the palestinian affairs revolutionary council he believes there is no longer a center ground in israeli politics. well mr netanyahu in my eyes my assessment according to the exit polls he is most definitely defeated he's out
8:05 pm
because while he is counting on according to these polls 56 seats in this coalition and awaiting israel became. party of 10 seaters to join him or not and in fact depending on him to form the government the natural thing for israel betaine to lieberman's party to join against and pull it further to the right as a matter of fact actually there are no centrist party running there's knesset now with his extreme far ideological right parties coalition and there is the right israeli right joined by very weak. unimpressionable left wing parties but at the end of it there it would be. a good change for the region because nothing has proved to be an idealogue that is
8:06 pm
really ruling israel today based on 4000 year old text which is something totally taking the taking the. political process into full frozen mode. a leading name in the hong kong protest movement has appealed to u.s. filmmakers at a congressional hearing on future ties between washington and the chinese autonomous territory joshua long has been pushing them to pass the hong kong human rights and democracy act which would monitor the region status with beijing and were tons of ongoing special economic favors. hong kong special status under american law that bans on the city being treated as a separate customs area beijing should not have it both ways reading all the economy benefits of hong kong standing in the world while erosion of our freedom is
8:07 pm
the most important reason why the hong kong human rights and democracy act and just the thoughts of hong kong civil society joshua one is a prominent student activist who organizes protests against the chinese government in support of hong kong's independence the 22 year old is also a leader of the pro democratic party. and he's already served several jail terms for his activities mr ones visit to new york over the weekend to huge attention from the media the reuters news agency the new york times and bloomberg are among those who asked for an interview or invited him to their offices he also gave a speech to students at the prestigious columbia university one has long supported the hong kong human rights and democracy act and recently said he expects it to be passed easily the bill proposes support from the u.s. so long as it remains governed arm's length beijing if not though that could
8:08 pm
trigger washington to revoke the city's special status as equals donald reports. they are many they've won the fight with the authorities by early submission but they are anything but done the american flag waving taskforce among the hong kong protesters are sending their poster boy to convince us legislators to do something big on autonomy. well for those of you having difficulty making out the absence of this boilerplate script it's the human rights and democracy act and it's meant to show beijing that the u.s. is serious about fighting for hong kong's rights the united states must make clear to china that its interference in hong kong's affairs will have consequences this month we must possibly cameron bipartisan on consumer rights and democracy act the
8:09 pm
bill was devised in response to what the u.s. has been calling a chinese infringement on the region's autonomy and requires for america to review own homes special status annually and if that status is ever revoked the region's autonomy would not so much be infringed but rather new to dust since the early ninety's hong kong has been enjoying huge advantages for wearing washington's special status badge. and some believe that a small yet vocal group of protesters is laying an explosive tripwire for the whole region which will not enjoy the konami chain reaction if it's ever triggered in a way that is they've just signal of the 'd biggest the orderly in the world
8:10 pm
without us this city will always just ordered. well it was going to hold a great deal but it's not just the whole poly there are thousands all united states don't believe in 'd all and it would likewise be affected of course it's a political home or because. it's only or percent of china's economy the recently say about tale of the dean years ago in me a call to all moral as far as equality is also so strong so big as now but now is a saint but on the other hand of course china we like would wish the one country to this is the sea so as to help china with the internationalization agreement with the real and so it's of all american legislators say the bill is designed to punish mainland china specifically as protesters want. but while the end goal may very
8:11 pm
well be punishing beijing in pursuit of a geo political supremacy washington my just overlook the collateral damage. the british government is facing criticism for an online campaign aimed at muslim teens that story and much more after the break. again we stand on the brink of war we should not be surprised the fischel washington was quick to blame iran for the attack on saudi energy assets iran has denied involvement while the who have claimed responsibility will trump take the neo-con bait and said the middle east on fire. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line they get accepted or
8:12 pm
rejected. so when you want to be president. or some want to be. to the right of the press this is what the 3 of them would be good. interested always in the why. you. should. join me every thursday on the alex salmond show and i'll be speaking to us of the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then. welcome back fighting racism is a touchstone topic for us democrat joe biden's push for the white house on sunday he gave an impassioned speech at a black church but a few days audio during
8:13 pm
a presidential debate when pressed on segregation and the legacy of slavery he switched to african-americans and how they should bring up the children caleb moore and explains how biden's been cortile before and crossing the line from empathy to condescension. joe biden formally the vice president is now running in the democratic primary enjoys a huge amount of support from the african-american voters and he wants them to know he really cares about them what responsibility do you think that americans need to take to repair the legacy of slavery in our country make sure that we bring into the helpless to sue the teachers deal with the problems that come from home we bring social workers into homes with parents to help them deal with how to raise their children it's not that they don't want to help they don't want they don't know quite what to do play the radio make sure the television the scrutiny make sure you have the record player on the phone make sure the kids hear words
8:14 pm
a kid coming from a very poor school or a very poor background who hear 4000000 words fewer spoken by the time they get there the record player now he seems a couple decades behind on modern technology but it's also a tad bit condescending don't you think now some are calling it parent shaming biden is the liberal racist why dems better start calling this out because black women are watching if joe biden isn't forced out of the running now i give up 1st he looks into the camera and laughs at the mention of racial inequality in us schools and we could racists that he describes black homelite and parenting in a way that is stunningly ignorant and insulting drew biden's own how to address the literacy of slavery was appalling and to scorn now this isn't the 1st time that joe is flubbed an answer when it comes to a racial issue he made some remarks when barack obama was selected as the
8:15 pm
democratic party candidate in 2008 that he probably meant to sound like a compliment i mean you get the 1st mainstream african-american who's are to cool it and bright and clean and a nice looking guy joe biden's comments point to an increasing phenomenon in us society being referred to as a liberal racism. joe biden is not burning a cross or arguing that non-whites are inferior but he does seem to have a touch of a white savior complex he comes across as condescending to those he thinks he's helping a study refers to it as a competence downshift and joe biden is not the only one what liberals may unwittingly draw negative stereotypes demean themselves down in a largely well meaning folksy but ultimately patronizing attempt to connect with the outgroup democratic party is pretty put on a list economy you can look you see order policies from the welfare state it is put into place to live thinks that blacks generally aren't as smart as whites and really would point to is the democrats projecting
8:16 pm
a lot of their own insecurities upon everyone knows day say everyone is races everyone is it seems everyone is all those days and if they're when it's really them they feel that way and it's trying to say that it's the other side actually feels that way for decades the democratic party has been promising to help minorities in the united states but do party leaders actually see them as it will members of society well joe biden's recent comments have got plenty of people asking that question. r.t. new york. meter of britain's opposition labor party is in the cross has off to washington think tank suggested that if he becomes prime minister he might possibly classified u.s. intelligence to russia were aghast at the sinister suspicions swatting around. it could all of escaped your notice the world seems to have been tipped upside down and recent years what made sense a few years ago is now considered crazy what was thought of as downright insane
8:17 pm
a few years ago now considered sensible like a potential british prime minister being called a russian agent by britain's best friend report mr trump to consider withholding since different from ation and even pushing for the country's nato membership to be downgraded if the labor leader and his downing street analysts are states that if labor takes office there would be a serious risk that information passed to corbin or his allies could be compromised especially if it was russia were iran yup somehow everyone with security clearance in the u.k. one of the most heavily surveilled nations on earth everyone missed that journey corben might be compromised but america and i'll figure it out that is if you trust us intelligence agencies whose report was apparently seen by a think tank analyst the british opposition leaders you know sympathetic to putin
8:18 pm
are you really mean we were duty to speak out against the abuse of human rights by the putin government and its supporters both at home and abroad and i join many others in this house in paying tribute to the many campaigners in russia for human rights and justice and democracy in that country is critical of russia he supported stringent sanctions against russia all very anti russian stuff but he made a mistake you see when the souls we spied trail of staging the world's most botched and barassi in poisoning with putin himself firing the starting pistol who'd been dead ask. the evidence proof that it was the russian government who did it. who does that either this was a crime or fluted by the russian state or that state has allowed these deadly
8:19 pm
toxins to slip out of the control it has an obligation to exercise if the latter connection to russian mafia like groups that have been allowed to gain a tool hold in britain cannot be excluded. that's what he said nothing about false flags or conspiracies so the question is really the kremlin or whether russian criminals got their hands on it in the past when sense meant being sensible that may have been a legitimate question but in this new reality you don't do sensible things you do like boris johnson was then foreign secretary who lived and said that the poison could only have come from russia he claimed categorically and i think he used the word 101 percent that it come from russia porton down have not said the eyes of the foreign secretary has information that he's not sharing with porton down or it was
8:20 pm
a bit of exaggeration if you're an adult for the police the school level education you have heard illegitimate query being floated if you're a paid pundit with an agenda and flexible said the morals you have heard blah blah blah my name is jeremy corbyn and i love the u.s.s.r. now if that got their mouths frothing imagine it catatonia those hacks went into when who'd been spokes person compared the soles very poor isn't ings the whole works about iraq's weapons of mass destruction. i think obviously the government has access to information and intelligence in this matter which others don't however also there is a history in relation to w m d and intelligence which is problematic to put it mildly now some of the reactions are a bit too full on to show you here but come on you know what happens to anyone who gets in the way of the russia bashing express their mood down and maybe got over
8:21 pm
a few times for good measure who wins problem is he just doesn't learn from pain less it is if russia is blamed for anything you have to believe it time magazine pretty much says so although the washington post took a more scientific approach listing corbin's faults one by one the opposition labor party leader and his spokesman a refused to accept that the kremlin was responsible be konstanz from british intelligence she complained that moscow had not been accorded due process and d. so the right response was robust dialogue he doubted the faceless intelligence agencies with horrific track records wanted jew process and justice foundation of human rights dialogue rather than health you know i've done is no more to say here i'll leave you with this the day american intelligence
8:22 pm
agencies learn to keep classified reports classified rather than leak them weekly the day we can perhaps trust them to tie their own shoelaces. and find sticking with the u.k. a lifestyle website for british muslim teens has become an unlikely flashpoint it's been revealed that the home office has been covertly funding it as part of a counter extremist and strategy a move that infuriated employees wielders and the wider muslim community. if you're a young muslim woman living in the u.k. then this is the website you at least that's what the creators want you to believe . this is a global media platform for young muslim ours in the east london and beyond to share and create inspiring and empowering content with positivity at its core inspiring but now it's been exposed after it was revealed that the site is being funded covertly by the u.k. home office in an attempt to tackle radicalization and now 2 employees have
8:23 pm
resigned over the controversial funding one of them says working the betrayed her believes. in my naivety here so that through this opportunity our super assistance i really could help to make real change pushing forward a different narrative from muslim women themselves sure when though we are empowered and multi-faceted are realized now there with the home office funding the project at the root there was no way i could do this regardless of the content i was pushing out while the project was set up in 2015 in direct response to 3 approaches schoolgirls including the baker running away to syria and whether they flee from london the very same place super sisters is targeting now it's made up of 9 staff members from jayco media and they secured their funding from something called build a stronger britain together which is an arm of the controversial terrorism. which has been accused of targeting and spying on listen communities in the u.k. now while many see that as a fundamental infringement of rights the home office has always defended its
8:24 pm
efficiency while super says this has like notion apologize for their wrongdoing they insist that they have full control over their content. we want to emphasize that even though b. s.b.c. may funders they do not have any creative control over super systems content where we acknowledge we were wrong and we apologize for it is not more clearly stating the source of funding on the super sisters instagram blog not just our website we have always been clear and transparent to the interview stage on how we often did including at sub hours interview at least that's what they say but the bias male a former employee says that there were no female muslims on the creative or editorial team plus she was only recently made aware of the controversial funding well it's left some people very angry and hurt by the revelations these revelations are shocking for my contributors have claimed that at one point there were no muslim women employed by g.e. go where you know they did toral for super sisters if i was a teenage muslim in today's environment i would be utterly confused and feel like i
8:25 pm
was constantly being spied upon by my own government. not setup by muslims not run by muslims you're trying to define young muslim women's identity thank you but muslim women can speak for themselves well super says this is just the latest platform to be embroiled in a transparent rout just a few weeks ago a social media network team called this is work a page claiming to engage in critical thinking m.s.m. traditions was found to be receiving funding from you guessed it the home office or the problem is to 1st of all the home office seems to the only thing is seized in the muslim community is extremism in many ways this is really. of trying to say that there is something fundamentally wrong with muslims in the mainstream and we need to socially engineer to sort of changed so they would not be
8:26 pm
problematic living in our society it really is sort of extension of seeing the whole muslims as possible terrorist and so therefore we should have these projects to change into something more acceptable so perhaps young muslim women in the u.k. right now be slightly more hopeful the new home secretary pretty patel who herself is from minority background might now be slightly more sisterly shot at woodstock's they are to u.k. london well that's our news for now i'll be back in around 30 minutes time with more global updates don't go father because up next it's crosstalk. thousands of american men and women choose to serve in the country's military. lives every came to
8:27 pm
a complete. i'll be instructed you know all the shut up but they'd kill me. and i see how destroyed my life many screamed at me and he made me come in and he grabbed my arm and he write me with his birth in your area if you take into account that women don't report because of the extreme retaliation and it's probably somewhere near about half a 1000000 women have now been sexually assaulted in the us military is a very very traumatizing tat happen but i've never seen trauma like i've seen from women who are veterans who have suffered military sexual trauma reporting rape is more likely to get the victim punished don't be offended and almost 10 year career or chose very invested in and i gave a sex offender who has not even wanted justice or put on the registry this is simply an issue of power and violence male sexual predators for the large part of target whoever is there to prey upon whether that's man or when.
8:28 pm
you use you or you. are. supposed to.
8:29 pm
hello and welcome across town for all things are considered peter lavelle again we stand on the brink of war we should not be surprised the fischel washington was quick to blame iran for the attack on saudi energy assets iran has denied involvement while the who have claimed responsibility will trump take the neo-con bait and set the middle east on fire. talking trump and duran i'm joined by my guest mohammad marandi until then he's a professor at the university of toronto in riyadh we have aquaman we brought him
8:30 pm
he is a saudi analyst and in miami we crossed the nicholas davies he's an independent journalist a researcher for code pink as well as author of blood on our hands the american invasion and destruction of iraq right gentlemen cross-talk rules in effect that means you can jump in and any time you want i always appreciate when he let me go to you in. iran is being a being called the culprit in all of this i just as i was sitting out in the studios c.n.n. is reporting that the saudi government and washington have a very high probability that iran did this it instead of the pointing fingers here i don't have to ask i think a far more germane question who benefits from this attack on saudi energy assets who is the beneficiary go ahead moment. no one benefits except for perhaps the israeli regime but at the end of the day i think the solution to all this is for the saudis to end the war in yemen the saudis have been carrying out these for 4 and a half years now they've been bombing school buses obvious schools hospitals.
