this is al jazeera. live from doha coming up in the next sixty minutes more protests across the world against president recognition of jerusalem as israel's capital. zimbabwe's ruling party meets to chart out the country's future off the president with. victims of syria's war and future another round of un talks fail. to end celibacy for catholic priests and change rules on confessionals for the sexual abuse of thousands of children in australia. so from palestine to pakistan to japan protests are underway against the u.s. president's decision to recognize jerusalem as the capital of israel that have.
1:02 pm
already been rallies in tokyo and this one in kuala lumpur where hundreds more through the streets outrage over donald trump decision to move the u.s. embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem has not died since the announcement last week it was wide widely condemned with islamic leaders instead declaring jerusalem as a copy of palestine we go to our correspondents keeping an eye on the situation from different vantage points higher force that is standing by for us in occupied east jerusalem will speak to in the second but first let's go to bethlehem and huldah i mean so i want to just tell us what's the situation there how are people reacting. when i do moment it is quiet here in bethlehem and mostly across the west bank it's still pretty friday prayer time but usually after prayers then you will have the youth breaking away from marches the demonstrations and coming to do so called fiction points and usually that turns into confrontation or clashes with the israeli army now does
1:03 pm
is really a way for to use to vent their frustration at the occupation and now obviously at recent involved in this jerusalem declaration that really created and up here here in the west bank people still angry trying to come to terms and trying to figure out what exactly does it mean for the future we had that big meeting in istanbul with president hu out of luck with the bus and others again condemning the situation mahmoud abbas perhaps being a little more forthright that he was originally what's the reaction been to the. well certainly speech was well received he was seen as stronger sterner and more defiant and we have seen him maybe several years so people were quite satisfied with that even though they thought that the final communique fell short of expectations i think that president arbaaz did say all the right things
1:04 pm
certainly what he talked about in his speech was basically answering to a lot of the what people were talking about palestinians were talking about in the days following the trump declaration now he they were however would like to see those words turned into action and they're growing impatient about that some of some of the people you speak to do fear that at some point maybe. bass who is a man who has dedicated more than twenty years of his life to to peace process my about the international pressure or u.s. pressure at the moment how things are people are satisfied that he said that the u.s. can no longer be a broker in any future negotiations if indeed there happens they're also very happy that at the moment also the palestinian authority said best would not receive vice president mike pence when he comes to the region later this month actually here on
1:05 pm
this wall behind me this is the separation wall north of better land you do have a big graffiti saying mike pence is not welcome here because it's in this city usually that mahmoud abbas receives foreign dignity actually received donald trump here just a few months ago so all that is playing well among palestinians but they do want to still see more action or a leave of a move back with you as the day progresses that's the picture in bethlehem let's go live now to our force who's in east jerusalem so quite a moment in bethlehem her house situation. well so far quiet here too there is a difference though from what we saw last friday when there were protests in the square behind me just outside damascus gate the entrance here to the old city throughout the day and there were occasional scuffles between protesters and police after protests after prayers especially this friday what we've seen is
1:06 pm
a fairly extensive police operation they have barricaded off the portions of damascus gate square where people were gathering on the steps to protest a week ago so now there is really just an entry and a grass point here with a pretty large police presence whether that's just to try and prevent a repeat of the relatively minor scuffles we saw last friday or whether we whether they have intelligence that said suggest there is a a larger response required we don't know the police spokesman is merely saying that sir police will respond to protest and that regular security measures are in operation no age restrictions though for prayers at a luxor mosque compound this friday that is something that does occasionally happen at a heightened points of tension so so far those prayers are underway we wait to see what the aftermath of those will be and there is a sense there too that that people have been galvanized by the words of the islamic leaders on wednesday. but i think that's one thing certainly there is this pretty
1:07 pm
loud and unified response that came from at least those delegates at the turkey conference on tuesday as well as that the palestinian factions have called for largescale protests this friday than we saw last week they've been calling them for it for them throughout the week and so it is certainly possible that we'll see something more sizable than we have seen in recent days since those friday protests it has been largely quiet here not by these truce than throughout the week this is the first opportunity that people will have had. after a working week and since those calls on tuesday to express their voices on the street so certainly it's really forces are preparing perry thanks very much indeed for that the picture the mood in east jerusalem occupied east jerusalem will be back in with her and with her indeed later as as the hours go on. now to zimbabwe where the new president term samina god is calling for the removal of international sanctions in return he's promising to do more to tackle corruption this comes as an
1:08 pm
bubblies congress is expected to ratify the removal of former president robert mugabe very much us as more now from. the president's extraordinary congress on friday will make decisions and resolutions that will take zimbabwe forward in a seminar go replace robert mugabe as leader of both the country and the ruling zanu p.f. party last month after the military intervened and mugabe resigned when i got was this technique corruption is a priority for the party he again want those accused of breaking the exchange control law by illegally stashing money abroad to return the stolen cash in exchange for amnesty i release my now. i. mean the margins were in. my words i am. oh no. there's
1:09 pm
a shortage of foreign currency long queues outside banks form at the end of every month many are angry desperate and frustrated at the poor state of the economy or the kind of issues that we want them to discuss issues that will positively impact on the ordinary person on the street so we just have that they'll be able to come up with a major discussion around the economy. the president says he'll call for the removal of sanctions imposed in the early two thousand by some western countries for alleged human rights abuses he believes the end of sanctions will help the economy improve more quickly president in a similar way is promising to stabilize the economy improve productivity on farms and create jobs that could mean amending off scrapping some controversial government policies. then you agriculture minister has ordered people who have illegally occupied farm lands to leave immediately the finance minister says indigenous ational a policy that favors blacks and will be more investor friendly some analysts say
1:10 pm
when i go will try to unite a seemingly divided party several but not all of the allies have been fired there's always an after effect of a political process particularly in a takeover presidency will be remnants of other factions but again they'll try and manage it's friday as congress will be the first without robert mugabe since one thousand nine hundred eighty when i got plans to announce who will replace mcgovern's wife grace as head of the party's women's league but we can join her live now from harare and her loss a big intentions here on the how hard will it be foreman and to actually implement . oh i get a lot of basics the living space the and the funny even though he's talking about thanks jon he wants to know how people see the curious about the policies that the government's going to undertake one hundred three basic things like land reform
1:11 pm
a tiny monetary cc's those who are on my need or not including everybody so the i didn't let me know that andrew bolt has emailed me and i simply mean why farmers are coming back and how many are really bad you have been lending money to feel that blacks should own land in zimbabwe any shouldn't go to the one who was reading writing off that reform which the concern for them that was and was conditioned i say said to not accept the fact and i mean it's a free for all protestants coming in things from businesses without having to cotton that the blacks are bobbies so some people like you from a to action group are concerned about it that's about the whole thing he had to fight those things why this talk was going to turn around the economy. or how or when even after the mentally great deal of excitement ahead of that congress has things build up to hurry things are actually in the tasa. there is no end in sight for millions of syrians who suffered years of turmoil after the latest round of geneva talks failed
1:12 pm

a doctor. syrians in zora camp were forced to leave their homes in homs city after a three year siege the government told them they could survive if they surrendered their homes five and a half thousand came to this camp but basic facilities a plastic sheet is what separates the people in sight from the really cold wind that you can feel out in this camp and you can see the conditions because this is what they have for sewage there because charities are providing help but it's not enough the refugees put on layers of clothes to stay warm during the harsh winter because there is no heating monitors of the campsie defending or read is not a long term solution to the bringing us aid boxes or heating doesn't solve our problem the problem is the regime solve that and the people will return home widows such as arms they have more urgent needs. for users to live in my child has a blood disease and he needs medicine i'm the wife of the martyr and have for friends i lost my husband and there's no one to help i don't want anything i want

1:16 pm
of two of those european leaders who secretly hope that it might not happen they feel that to resume a is as good as they'll get and yes they will get the affirmation that phase one is over but that was about the terms of the withdrawal and it is time for phase two to begin which is being characterized as talks about the future relationship between a britain which is out of the e.u. off to march twenty ninth and the remaining part of the european union back to feed a couple of days ago for two reasons how much of an impediment is that in the days and months and indeed years ahead as to a smooth way forward. i think in part make it it depends to what extent it reveals itself as part of a trend i mean it's a reminder obviously that to reason may does not command a majority in the house of commons or rather she only does as part of an uneasy
1:17 pm
coalition and there is the potential for the defeats to come the vote in itself removes some of the power over bracks it from the government and gives it to parliament i think it raises doubts here in brussels to the question that european heads of government when they sit down with a reason may is does she have a mandate. does she have to deliver will whatever we hammer out here is so so difficult so torturous the process of reaching a conclusion here in brussels will it be validated in london and it certainly does raise doubts about or. thanks very much for that's in brussels. a five year inquiry into the sexual abuse of children in australia has called for sweeping changes to be made including recommending an end to mandatory celibacy in the catholic church history and roll commissioned estimates tens of thousands of children have been abused in australia situations over the last ninety years the

1:29 pm
we've had on our beaches in the last three days but that's only part of the story this is two thousand meters up that is certainly well below freezing but a few days ago it was round about zero now if it is in about the height that means many of the alpine mountains of snow in the last week have seen it melt that in addition to a certain amount of rain that's falling further south like in italy has caused continual flooding in the pope valley was a big flat valley so once you get flooding it's hard to get rid of it and this is still a situation about three or four days on of course there have been evacuations and people being rescued now i have to say in the immediate future it's possible to get another fifty or so millimeters of rain out of what is that streaming cloud but it's further south in italy to the north the pope valleys generally speaking drop the many snow showers to the north of that but this is a definite division in weather type of the cold stuff is pushing through so in twenty four hours time you'll find that almost all of italy's a little cooler there's yet more snow falling on the outs but the mountain tops it

1:31 pm
jews in iraq and. where every. are you watching i desire a reminder of the top stories this protest are underway against the u.s. president's decision to recognize drew slim as the capital of israel have already been rallies in tokyo and this one in kuala. ladies and live pictures from bethlehem. where protesters have been in the streets of course he'd be moving the u.s. embassy from tel aviv to jerusalem last week. zimbabwe's ruling party is to finalize
1:32 pm
road look obvious removal as the country's president at a meeting in harare the need to end this in gaga is expected to be confirmed as a candidate for next year's election was inaugurated last month off the military seized power. at a commission in australia on the catholic church to change its rules on celibacy and confessionals after finding that thousands of children used the role commission to deliberate its final report into its five year investigation and looked at abuses at institutions and schools. well let's return now to top story we can join unofficial correspondent who's standing by force in gaza and alan we've been speaking to her in bethlehem we spoke to. force it in our twenty's true islam what's the situation. well we are in the should jaya neighborhood of gaza city which in the two thousand and fourteen war people may have had that name
1:33 pm
a lot it was quite badly impacted by by that conflict this is saladin street it runs north to south the entire length of the gaza strip it's about forty five kilometers and at gathering on thursday the leader of hamas said he wanted to see a one million man march stretching the entire length and he wanted tones and villages and cities to come out and express their anger at donald trump's this is you know looking at the crowd i can see banners from several different political parties and factions from hamas itself and fatah to the communist party of palestine they are all represented here in the intention is that there will be a link all the way up to forty five kilometers of the gaza strip hamas insist that this will shore the world and the united states how angry they are at the decision to declare jerusalem as israel's capital and to sure that no one here is prepared to take this decision lying down and as far as the reaction to donald trump's when
1:34 pm
his declaration last week over the region as a whole it was felt that the reaction was it was fairly moderate was more muted the one might have expected is there a sense that things might build up. well from ismail haniya at the meeting in the center of gaza on thursday he said that as far as he could see donald trump in israel was isolated from world opinion and the reason people are coming out onto the streets here is that they are not convinced that any of this will change donald trump's mind he's not going to watch t.v. as we're told he does many hours a day look at the protests and think you know may have done something wrong here but what they're hoping to do is increase the pressure regionally and internationally to assure their fellow arab countries to show islamic countries not sure the world farther afield that the people here believe that this is the wrong decision that there has got to be a negotiation and they also believe that this shows that america isn't an honest
1:35 pm
broker hasn't been an honest broker and we don't believe that this is just something that's come around during the trump presidency they believe that that is something that has been true for twenty thirty forty years and so the protests are likely to continue because what they're doing is putting pressure on other countries to say to the americans this is not acceptable and as we saw in some newspaper reports just on thursday there are the french and the belgians are looking at a potential peace deal which would be different from what the americans are crafting at the moment so it is all about putting pressure on other places rather than hoping the donald trump is going to suddenly change his mind or other leave there for the moment in gaza city we will return to allan as the as the day goes on but for now let's go to sultan bark out who's the director of the center for conflict and humanitarian studies at the institute and joins us now here in the studio i think we just have
1:36 pm
a look at some pictures right now in bethlehem because there are you can just see evidence of tensions this has been set alight there by the looks of it security forces standing by there was a big call for greater rallying as allan was alluding to is. mr ball for president out of turkey in the mood about us do you get a sense that we might see more reaction today friday than we did this time last week i mean this is the second friday since the decision and i think the level of protest is is what is expected by a by and large what has been more interesting is really the political reaction and most of the international reaction to this the meeting in istanbul i think is a very important event fifty seven states now. denouncing the decision and recognizing jerusalem as a capital of palestine to east jerusalem as a cup of palestine is a very important step netanyahu on the eleventh of december tried for the first
1:37 pm
time in twenty two years a prime minister for israel visits brussels and visits they you had court and tried to convince them to go the same route as trump and they disagreed with that and that's another important win if you like to the idea of jerusalem as got to be shared between the two nations because it has been a firm response isn't that there's been a lot of. spin to not see any concrete actions are we to put to really apply pressure on this u.s. decision well i think it will build up politically it takes time for those reels to start moving now the palestinians have a number of fruits ahead of them one option is to go to the international criminal court there's a possibility of them protesting at the united nations security council because trump with his decision has violated security council decisions so that there are i think many potentials and. my own view i think what would be best for
1:38 pm
the person is really to keep focus on this political game that they achieved as a result of his very unfortunate and miscalculated step so if we keep coming back to the concept of the peace process and you are cushion or interim himself yes that this is the ultimate deal it's a. the offering will be revealed for every march next year perhaps later. but if the palestinians are prepared to negotiate with the united states who steps in who steps into the breach is that saudi arabia and all the us involved in any way and i think the idea of that big deal is now over in many ways there is raise have called the ready for. have been summoned to come in as the new mediator or media to the to be acceptable from both sides days really and the palestinians now for that to happen is there has to be a lot of normalization between saudi arabia and the israelis before they reach the stage where they're willing and able to sit around the same table and i doubt that will happen anytime soon. and then you know tellers and i think what he said about
1:39 pm
the embassy and the fact it's going to take at least three years a to find or agree the land and find out who is doing who are the on the ship where the ownership lies the sitra and then to build the embassy and this may happen when trump has already left and finally what about other players in the region specifically around well iran i think it's again these are for a golden opportunity for iran to rally its population around a core cause that everyone agrees on and in a way it has really undermined the alliance that the united states had tried to build with islamic states led by saudi arabia's as recently as may this year or it's all to appreciate that thanks very much to do something very welcome thank you. because most powerful criminal gang has declared a unilateral cease fire the gulf club and says it is committed to reaching a surrender deal with the government but as alexander rep yes he reports there
