1:03 pm
forces have now entered the capital and out of nowhere have control of the. airport the national security. external ongoing right now the clashes are growing very very tired of. clashes. but this is far from over. and. it's far from over and no one now has the upper hand but it's still in shock to. see. majority of the an example yesterday they were. having nothing in their hands. saying that an abdullah saleh president forces are in control of majority of the capital that includes the airport and solar. the airport control.
1:04 pm
the majority of the areas where. control they were not because of clashes because. those institutions which used to clash. there were evacuations there were some. really. because of clashes. going on in the middle. but rather in the neighborhood who said i want to control the park. came water on a song we know the relations have been strained between the host is not the fault of the allies have a range breaking point on this this point what's behind this. is over is far from over but again. happening right now. by the end of the day but again. from expected. the problem is that.
1:05 pm
once they control complete picture to all the. security and the military. wanted to be partners with. the intelligence and military and military. action and the problem started. to ask a partnership very critical time. if you just are happening. all over the capitals that are very important development a lot of more implications to be examined here for now let's thank you must money there. now saudi's foreign minister says the saudi led coalition is looking at ways to increase the flow of humanitarian assistance into yemen saudi arabia placed a blockade on yemen last month after a missile was fired from her the territory towards riyadh it is urging the who
1:06 pm
thing is to stop fighting and join the political process we hope that eventually the who things will realize that this is not in it and that they will make peace there are many citizens they have every right to participate in the political process but we can't control the country not if you're fifty thousand and the country is twenty eight million that's ridiculous and so this is where we are we are very concerned about the humanitarian situation in yemen we are looking at ways of entrancing the floor humanitarian assistance into yemeni ports reports in the coming days and few weeks we will make more announcements in the. u.s. senators narrowly passed a bill for the biggest overhaul of the tax system in decades it's a political victory of sorts for president donald trump after his administration won the support of republicans who've been holding out on friday no democrat voted
1:07 pm
for the legislation the house of representatives passed a separate version and now must meet the senate to agree on a final bill well if the legislation passes it would be the largest u.s. tax overhaul since one nine hundred eighty it would add one point four trillion dollars to twenty trillion dollars national debt over ten years the trumpet ministration says the reforms will help the economy but critics say they only benefit corporations and the rich william black is a professor of economics and law with the university of missouri in kansas city he says congressional republicans were desperate to get the tax bill through. the paradox is that the republicans have actually gotten weaker in congress and that trump now has more power over them than he has had it any point in the presidency and that to his strength comes in part from the very weaknesses we've talked about
1:08 pm
that they congressional republicans are now desperate to have something pass anything that's the first part the second part is they are particularly desperate to get the key provisions of this bill through for their donor base and the donor base of course these are the wealthier people and this tax cut is overwhelmingly going to go for the wealthiest americans and the donors are saying pass this bill or don't come back to us for more contributions and then basically the key political fact is that trump's base is still with trump and that trumps base is what turns out in primary elections so congressional republicans don't fear democrats anywhere near as much as they fear trumps base in the prime republican primary and trump has played on these theories quite well well economists say that this is going to add only they're
1:09 pm
a tiny amounts in terms of growth there's a clear consensus among economists so overwhelmingly this has nothing to do with growth and everything to do with redistributing income again towards the wealthiest americans. take you live now to rome where qatari foreign moves around the fountain you speak to the man to conferences his name to what he's saying. and there are a lot of tactical measures being taken in order to address and to treat those results but what's we have addressed the results only we didn't look at the root causes for all this phenomena which is a growing and in that region and we believe that we cannot treat only the result and ignore the old causes and we have to. look at them and look at what
1:10 pm
are the reasons which brought us to the situation and we are going to look at them we will see that there is no hope for the people provided to give them just solution for their crisis those humanitarian crisis humanitarian tragedies there is. a missing part of it which is the hope for solution and the hope for the just solution not not just a solution but really the solution which will address. their real concerns so after providing them with this with a just solution and providing them with a. positive condition of human rights where they can. practice their rights without any resistance from their. tyrants leaders or
1:11 pm
from other countries then the safety will provided then we can provide them with the economy development which is very important to empower those country in order not to be in need to travel and to take. to take on all this way to come to europe to find a better chance for for their lives. we see that maybe i have presented this which looks for. a dark picture but it's not really. as dark as i have explained that it's not coming because of the situation of what's happening there and we are just standing from a distance and looking at it without moving and taking really serious steps to put and for this procession situation and we stopped those power players from continuing their games and their adventures.
1:12 pm
and we need to take a serious is that right now to engage in a regional security dialogue and to agree on the principles which all the countries should adhere to whether it's a small or big there should be principles which unites us together and from those principles we can go for the next level of cooperation where we. build on our political and security agreement another level of economy cooperation which will never be disrupted by political conflict and will be protected by this this is our view but this is the way we see it is not because only of the gulf are crisis and what's happened is.
1:13 pm

1:14 pm
a senior member of trance transition team asked him to reach out to dry shoes and bags that are to the u.s. before the president's inauguration a move that is not allowed now his guilty plea shows flynn is cooperating with the mother investigation and could be an important source for information for prosecutors investigating others in the white house kimberly how to report. arriving at federal court in washington michael flynn ignored shouted questions by reporters. inside moments later the former national security adviser to president donald trump pled guilty to lying to the f.b.i. court documents show the charges against flynn stem from his lying about efforts to obtain advance knowledge of how foreign governments might vote on a u.n. security council resolution about israel as well as phone conversations flynn had before trump was even sworn in as president with the former russian ambassador to
1:15 pm
the united states survey kiss lee ak flynn is said to have suggested to kiss liane sanctions put in place against russia by the obama white house may be dropped once trump was sworn in but they did not discuss anything having to do with the united states decision to expel diplomats or or impose a censure against russia flints lies to the vice president about that phone call led to his dismissal after just three weeks in office in a statement trumps lawyer said flynt false claims mirror the false statements to white house officials which resulted in his resignation in february of this year nothing about the guilty plea or the charge implicates anyone other than mr flynn but his plea in fact may directly tie the oval office to the investigation by special counsel robert muller and whether or not the trunk campaign worked with
1:16 pm
russia this suggests that mr flynt has more information to provide about other things the white house has lied about other things the president himself may have lied about and whether or not the white house including the president himself colluded with russia according to the former f.b.i. director james comey trump once asked him to drop the case against flynn and despite claims by the. the president's lawyer claims cooperation with the f.b.i. probe shows that lowers investigation is ask. could lead to charges against an even bigger target clothing the president of the united states kimberly health that al-jazeera washington speculation is now turning to who might be implicated next in the investigation how to call hayne is being gauging reaction on capitol hill. general michael flynn was a very visible part of trump's campaign for president one of his earliest and closest advisers his job often go after hillary clinton. by her
1:17 pm
that's right. that chance came back to haunt him friday oh. and. his guilty plea will make it that much harder for the white house to downplay the investigation but the f.b.i. now admits is looking into potential collusion between russia and the trump campaign which the president has called a witch hunt but i think most of us believe it's not a witch hunt or a hoax and that the f.b.i. director and all others believe this is a legitimate concern for their part democrats dismissed the white house assertion that flynt was a minor figure in the administration part of this is yourself from one of the most visible of your campaign surrogates and your national security adviser we want to wish everybody a merry christmas and on thursday night trump seemed to bask in the spotlight lighting the national christmas tree it was a much different scene after the news broke friday reporters kept out of a planned photo shoot in the oval office the president who seems to love to talk.
1:18 pm
and tweet stayed silent general flynn is the fourth person close to president that's been caught up in this investigation now that we know he's cooperating it's pretty much guaranteed he won't be the last to call him al-jazeera washington. police in germany have used water cannons to disperse demonstrators in the city of hanover they're protesting against the far right party which is gathering to elect a new leadership the anti migrant anti islam polity won almost one hundred seats in parliament in september's general election it's gearing up to oppose chancellor angela merkel's yet to be formed government. there will be germany's official opposition party if michael and his into a coalition with the social democrats there if he wants to introduce a proposal to repatriate syrian refugees this will be debated in parliament but
1:19 pm
almost all of the parties are expected to vote against it controversially the far right party also wants to all of the german army which has traditionally been kept out of politics since the end of world war two and a callan joins us from the german city of hanover so how those protests shaping up now. i mean you can probably see nothing on the right behind me where we will be traveling to the first part of it we're trying to get to . the convention the convention which is about three hundred meters in front of me . to block this some six hundred delegates who are going to that convention in order to vote for a new leader. original leader all be stepped aside after the election saying that she was worried that the party was gearing to the bride and so now we'll have to elect a new leader. we are trying to with her out on the thank you for that from germany
1:20 pm
. i'm coming to fight for her and i would say that you are the only around the convention center i haven't managed to block the delegate convention is underway. and now the protesters are actually gathering in another part of that city. it will start to kick off the official protests it was very expecting some eight thousand protesters in the city of kind of a today but the scuffles that we've seen so far have been a much smaller group probably up to about one hundred that we will or guards outside take us inside the congress meeting there how much of an ideological crossroads was the find itself at this point. well quite a big ideological crossroads in fact so i mean they now have to make a decision now that they call them and a body that is to the right of the conservatives for the first time since world war
1:21 pm
two they now have to decide how much they will going to divide there is one part of the eye that that is very much advocating a very hard line policy and another moema faction that would appeal to say more conservative voters and take away bargains from the c.d.u. block that is run by angela merkel as you mentioned earlier does put said germany also are at a crossroads because it's not a question of how far rides. of of where the politics will be pulled to the right but the problem it will actually have to debate some of the things that the i see he's considering such as retired creating the syrian refugees and they think that. it will hold a controversial proposal that they would put forward things like banning circumcision of male babies that some quite far out policy far right policies that are being discussed but then the other part of the eye is very much wanting to
1:22 pm
broaden its appeal base and preparing very much to be the opposition in case the coalition told us that happening between angela merkel and the social democrat actually they form a coalition then we are we will have the numbers to be the biggest opposition leader in the fall of the on the calendar thanks for the. palestinian chief negotiator is warning the u.s. will be playing with fire if it recognizes jerusalem as the capital of israel card was referring to reports u.s. president could announce the policy change on wednesday the white house insists the final decision hasn't been made the status of jerusalem has been one of the most sensitive subjects of the israeli palestinian conflict as both sides claim the city is their capital. i mean. everyone has informed the u.s. administration that jerusalem isn't just a palestinian question it's an arab islamic and christian question the u.s.
1:23 pm
administration understands the enormity of the subject we're being told that promises were made during the election campaign which would postpone internal u.s. problems that are facing trump or anyone else. but this is a very big issue touching to roost touching the al aqsa mosque touching the church of the holy sepulcher is playing with fire there's no meaning for a palestinian state without east jerusalem as its capital now is an executive committee member of the palestinian liberation organization joins us now from ramallah good to have you with us so any change in the u.s. position on juries and how much of a game changer would that be for the peace process. well this would strike at the heart of any chances of peace let alone any peace process that the americans are thinking ah this would then i laid the chances of peace this would also constitute a great provocation for palestinians for at ups for muslims for christians who are
1:24 pm
people who are committed to international law because this means that the us has become complicit with the israeli occupation with israeli illegal unilateral actions like the annexation of two of us alone it would be a direct blow to any chance for the u.s. to play on your own and peacemaking it would disqualify itself and at the same time it would undermine its standing in the region and beyond i don't let most dangerous i say to you the israelis are a constant source they they say every country has the right to designate its own capital and the u.s. recognition of that would simply be sort of normal fare all. yes fine i would like to designate my capital and palace for example you don't designate your capital on other people's law on land you stole your part from other people but this has to be made clear jerusalem as a whole east and west is not recognized as israeli because according to one and two
1:25 pm
on east and west to. separate out them that's why nobody recognizes jerusalem as the capital of israel east jerusalem is also universally and legally recognized as occupied territory it was forcibly occupied by the one nine hundred sixty seven so in that sense and forty eight over by force west and sixty seven and took over in forty eight and sixty seven at took over easter islam by force and next it illegally it is basically a thing of forgery transforming it's got to getting out systematic ethnic cleansing and so on and jerusalem and now it wants the world to recognize this that is no way in which jerusalem can be extracted from the heart of palestine or in which it can be an israeli city exclusively isn't a city and if you want it is illusion then you would recognise west jerusalem as capital of israel you would recognize east jerusalem as the capital of palestine
1:26 pm
this is in the context of accepting the two state solution on the sixty seven borders let me ask you what implications any sort of change in the us position would have for palestinian politics i mean would this not be seen as a failure of the palestinian political class. well you can always blame the victim unfortunately we cannot decide on the polishes on the politics on the domestic realities of the us if we are a decisive factor their way back is their way is madness and domestic politics then you can say we failed the problem is that it is very convenient to always blame the palestinians for the work that is done by others for the injustice that they suffer if. a suffering from a domestic scandal if he is raising the specter of islam a phobia and so on if he is trying to find this tractions and diversions if he has
1:27 pm
people and the white house who are logically to that item that the now that is a problem that we suffer from it's their problem but it is also directed against the palestinians and i think the problem now is that we are being asked to transform or change that reality is within that engine and outside i think if damp takes this position then singlehandedly he will be responsible for creating a situation of tremendous instability and violence and of laying open the whole issue of religious and spiritual affiliation and transforming the conflict into a religious conflict and that is something that nobody can control or contain once the genie is out of the bottle and i shari franks feel full so much. security forces in honduras have been given extra powers to stop violence that followed a disputed presidential election one person has been killed in scuffles between police and opposition supporters and dozens injured
