is and all of these protesters 1 may carry us flag and british flags and kalani your flags that they want the active intervention of the us against china not just against hong kong they want rules passed and congressional legislation passed that will be used as part of the trade war against china they want to in polls are very rigid and and they are really the spokespeople for this so i think they're not a legitimate force i think they're an extremely well funded well organized force by their not representing the crying needs of the people of hong kong. for a future and for a better life and instead they're trying to create hatred for the very fact that there are chinese. well just she was exposed to those who question the hearings later today senator marco rubio's chipped in to is used to bill that proposes
1:04 am
support for hong kong from the u.s. to guarantee his autonomy he goes down off report. 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 essence of this boilerplate script it's that 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 affairs will have consequences this month we must possibly cameron bipartisan on consumer rights and democracy act the
1:05 am
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
1:06 am
a way this leverage is sitting whole the ready biggest economy in the world in a lot of states and city hall is just ordered it was going to hold a great deal but it's not just the whole portly there are thousands of dollars they still believe in ready old gold and it would likewise be affected of course it's a political war because. it calls only or percent of china's economy he was so scared of the deal years ago in me a call to all more as far as equality is also. but low is always sent but on the other hand of course we law i would wish the one country to see so as to help trial or with the internationalization that really with the. whole american legislators say the bill is designed to punish mainland china specifically as protesters want sean not to but while the end goal may very well be
1:07 am
punishing beijing in pursuit of a geo political supremacy washington my just overlook the collateral damage. israel ceasar afraid of incumbent prime minister putin and yahoo interim president and repaint set of parliamentary elections he's locked in a tight contest with his rival let's go live to polish live at least on this one paula can but he may not know pull this off and stay in office to think. well that essentially is the question and will know in around 24 hours essentially you're going to have and this is the speculation 9 parties forming the next israeli parliament or the next israeli knesset and the competition really boils down to 2 men the one is the incumbent israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and his right when he could party and the other is his former i.d.f. chief benny guns and his center left blue and white party now it was the same son arya 6 months ago during april elections where you had these 2 men fighting for the
1:08 am
majority netanyahu won the most number of seats but he was unable to form a majority coalition he needed $61.00 out of $120.00 parliamentary seats and the person who blocked him that time around was a former israeli defense force a minister avigdor lieberman and the whole issue over what was over whether or not orthodox jews should serve in the israeli army this is an issue that has not been resolved so it is likely we could see the same scenario playing itself out again and really despite whichever of the 2 leaders wins the focus is going to be on who can actually form that majority coalition and the latest indications are that neither actually can so what we've seen in the last few weeks is a lot of energizing of support base as we've seen the parties trying to grab support from smaller parties to try to maximize their numbers. poor so give me some more ideas that have. been doing to boost the support base of
1:09 am
. well like any politician that's fighting for his political survival which is essentially the position that netanyahu finds himself in he's been making a lot of promises the most recent of which was that should he be reelected he will and makes the west bank settlements and also the jordan valley and for anyone who thought that the peace process between israelis and palestinians was not a way he did that so it was the last nail in the coffin here. also started negotiating a us israel defense treaty. i had a call with prime minister netanyahu to discuss the possibility of moving forward with a mutual defense treaty between the united states and israel that would further the tremendous alliance between our 2 countries thank you my dear friend president trump the jewish state has never had a greater friend in the white house or look forward to our meeting at the un to advance
1:10 am
a historic difference treaty between the united states and israel. now the american president donald trump has been playing an enormous role in the israeli elections back in april just before those elections he made the bold statement that the americans recognize the israeli hold over the golan heights and this is despite international law which says otherwise and despite the fact that this remains a contentious issue and has been ever since 1967. in a moment i will sign a presidential proclamation recognizing israel's sovereign right over the golan heights now at no time now who has been using the american president's image in his election posters if you drive around the country you can see that on yahoo and trump smiling from any number of boards what's interesting is that in this country if you are a political analyst you charge something like $180000.00 a year but here in a town yahoo is getting priceless support from the american president and it's only
1:11 am
been benefiting him for nothing so the question is whether or not they need to be a 30 lection and just what kind of promises trump is going to make to the israeli prime minister should that eventuality unfold. polo world also will follow more will know what's holding you so with the next 24 hours we'll let you get across the bridges the latest as the updates come through policy in jerusalem from . but more background is that the israeli parliament was dissolved in april in a dispute over the growing influence of the ultra orthodox jewish minority the country's former defense and foreign minister as refused to join it because coalition of it all lieberman is an outspoken opponent of the military draft privileges handed out to the ultra orthodox community where they can avoid compulsory army service if it rolled in religious studies.
1:12 am
leaver accuses the ultra religious minority of seeking to impose jewish religious law on the secular majority they've imposed bans on public transport on the sabbath strict marriage laws and gender segregation we asked people in jerusalem if this affects their daily lives. the ultra orthodox establishment have a very strong hold of the israeli politics in israeli government i think it affects our lives. that the orthodox make their own rules. they want to make themselves different from the other people i don't think they're affected too much except from things like.
1:13 am
public transportation in israel. in saturday i don't have buses instead on saturdays i want to go to the beach and the laws that they try to pass not. according to my opinions but we should accept them as well as much as we accept our the laws from other communities i truly believe in diversity but still i think they should live their lives and we should we supposed to live our lives. it was democratically joe biden was pushing his campaign with a focus on the fight against racism on sunday he delivered a speech or to the african-american church just days earlier during presidential debates when pressed on segregation and the leg asli of slavery he decided to lecture african-americans on their parenting abilities reports. 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 we bring social workers into homes and parents to help
1:14 am
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 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 a liberal racist why dems better start calling this because black women are watching if joe biden isn't forced out of the running now i give up 1st who looks into the camera and loves at the mention the racial inequality in us then he describes back home life better in thing in the way it is done in the government and insulting drew biden's son on how to address the literacy of slavery was appalling and
1:15 am
discord 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 democratic party candidate in 2008 that he probably meant to sound like a compliment i mean you got the 1st mainstream african-american who's articulate 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 liberal racism joe biden is not burning across 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. only one white liberals may unwittingly drawn negative stereotypes demean themselves down in a likely well meaning folksy but ultimately patronizing attempt to connect with the outgroup there is
1:16 am
a particular approach to black americans by so-called liberals which reflects the so-called savior complex that's why he's suggesting that the problem with black americans it that they're not good parents the need to have access to social workers that is obviously insulting the problem the united states is that you cannot run 2 horses going in different directions at the same time and inevitably what happens is that mr biden winds up riding the races with us and so given all of the burdens that mr biden is facing that is to say trying to appeal to races in n.c. races it's no accident that he is crumbling under the pressure 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. are see new york. and

1:22 am
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 changed 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 she added stash to r t u k london. there's a footnote to this we asked the home office to comment on the story as when we go to be later on today when office opens who will tell you what to say. coyle scott has called on the serbian people to look at the bigger picture and put the nato bombings in 1909 behind them we don't ask the serbs to forget the recent history but we are asking you to look at the bigger picture. in
