12:00 am
well it's underway right now here at the presidential residence in west jerusalem president rivlin has already met with representatives of benny gantz as blue and white party because they came 1st in the election with 33 seats he's currently either is still or just has met with the new could delegation in the party of benjamin netanyahu and the news from both of those meetings is that rivlin is very clear that he wants to see a unity government between those 2 parties says that that is what the votes suggest and that the only way of having a stable national unity government is to have one composed mainly at least of likud and blue and white of course the big stumbling block in that is that blue and white campaigned very much on removing netanyahu replacing and you know saying that the corruption allegations against him the hate rhetoric which was referred to by law and one of the senior members of blue and white who is here that that was what
12:01 am
voters had voted out so the question then looms for likud as to whether it is going to stick behind netanyahu it's representatives came in here saying that that the refusal of blue and white to sit down with benjamin netanyahu and try to work out some kind of power sharing deal some kind of national unity government was that the major problem and that it could not be a serious party of government if it did not do that i asked the head of the blue and white delegation michel on the former army chief of israel do you definitively rule out ruling in or sitting in a government with benjamin netanyahu he did not answer that question. and that very closely i believe we're also expecting a statement from the joint list today that is the palestinian israeli parties hey what is their priorities likely to be in this process. well yes
12:02 am
they're due to be here in the next few minutes for their meeting is the 3rd largest party with president rivlin and we've just had a tweet in the last few minutes from one of the senior members of the joint honest assessment tb he says that history is done we will do what is necessary to bring down benjamin netanyahu so pretty clear indication that the vote that they were having has gone in favor of recommending a former israeli army chief ben benny gantz to be the next prime minister of israel that doesn't mean they're willing to sit in a coalition government with blue and white but it seems that they are willing to recommend him as prime minister something like that hasn't happened since 1992 so it's a major step by them obviously and as was indicated by that tweet one of the key motivating factors is to get rid of netanyahu into and his administration his name is decade long rule in his 2nd period as prime minister but as much as that there is also a shift underway which is represented both in polls and by the kind of language
12:03 am
that's been used by the joint this recently for more engagement in israeli politics this would obviously be a big step in that way i'm annoyed at the leader of the joint list even rose raised the prospects which was shot down by other parties jewish parties zionist parties of them potentially serving under certain conditions in the future in a coalition government that is not going to happen but it does seem that they are going to at least recommend benny gantz they want various things in in in return for that they want to see an end the the repeal of the of a bill which of a law which was passed recently which downgrades palestinian identity in their view as part of israel they also want various domestic policies instituted there are various social and economic concerns that they want to see addressed but a pretty major shift underway on that side of the political spectrum how a force that our correspondent ben rest or
12:04 am
a sense he'll be bringing you updates from those talks as they happen thanks gary. well there's plenty more ahead for you on this news hour including thousands of tourists in danger of being stranded as the world's oldest travel company struggles to avoid collapse. fearing for their future stripped of their autonomy the people get ready to be ruled from india's capital. and sports man who is the man for england as they get their rugby world cup campaign underway. now hong kong police have fired tear gas to disperse protesters who trashed parts of a shopping mall and an adjacent metro station protesters also trampled on a chinese flag and that fire is as they targeted stores run by mainland operators sara clock reports from hong kong. they arrived in the hundreds taking over some of
12:05 am
the city's largest shopping mall at the new term plans are in shot team they converged on every fool shops linked to the mindless and with the target this time some stopped on china's national flag before ripping up. the. 2 hours they cern and yelled abuse story writers suspected of being pro beijing pro hong kong government eventually stores and restaurants were forced to close its. outside the mall protesters used umbrellas to hide their faces before smashing security cameras and burning barricades. specialist riot police then moved in issued a warning and fired several rounds of tear gas to disperse the crowd. the at another boiling cow looted around 200 protesters marched through the shopping center chanting slogans such as fight for freedom and revive hong kong the gatherings like this in shopping malls are
12:06 am
a new tactic being used by protesters it's a peaceful. means of getting their message across at the same time the targeting chinese own companies. but the peace didn't last long police moved in after protesters vandalize stools and a metro station the crowd was chased out of the movie station post despite the chaos caused few demonstrators to how much compared to the previous 16 weeks of sunday protests. chief executive carrie lamb is due to host the 1st in a series of public meetings which she hopes will end the crisis but protesters say why back down until the demands for greater freedom and lissa control from beijing on it. sir al-jazeera hong kong. narendra modi is joining us president and then to celebrating their alliance and indian culture in texas tens of thousands of indian americans are expected to attend the
12:07 am
rally in houston our white house correspondent can the help that reports about losing his relationship with the white house bans 2 u.s. presidents but india's prime minister narendra bodie needs more than just official support he needs the indian american community too with his economy struggling and tensions high with pakistan over disputed kashmir modi will be in the u.s. state of texas on sunday to rally supporters and while the largest and actor the most prominent is the indian american community it is rich it is ready to do it is ready plug been it's one of the main reasons u.s. president donald trump it in a usual move will join modi on stage in houston obviously bar drop shark all. the it is 2016 presidential campaign trump courted their vote.
12:08 am
and even though most indian americans voted for his opponent trouble need all the help he can get for his reelection bid in 2020 he's also hoping to sign a trade agreement with modi to counter the ongoing tariff or with china which many analysts believe is hurting the u.s. economy. welcome to how it is now in houston from where she joins us live kimberly why is the indian prime minister rallying people in tewson despite the novel slogan that we're hearing doesn't seem the most obvious of places. no it's not and the reason that he's in the united states officially is for the united nations general assembly which of course is imminent but he certainly held these rallies around the world before for his indian diaspora but why he's physically here in houston well this is a large part to do with a lot of the international criticism about modi's politics in particular nationalist brand of politics this is a bit of a p.r.
12:09 am
campaign if you will trying to gloss over some of the international criticism concerns from human rights groups about not just stripping autonomy from kashmir the communications blackout that was launched by his government but also the surge of attacks oh on religious minorities that has really proliferate and well he has been in office so this is a chance to try and being across the world not just in india but the united states and an international newspapers a chance for him to appear on stage with u.s. president donald trump trying to gloss over a lot of that international criticism about modi's ground of national politics or russian rather nationalist politics and can be as you just said trump will be joining him today on stage at this how do you modi rally one kind of a statement is trying trying to make. well already this has been a little bit tense and i forgot to mention one very important point about last
12:10 am
ounce or here in terms of that criticism that modi has been facing there are in fact thousands of protesters here outside the stadium if you give you a sense of how tense it got one point if you tried to film those protesters are photographers had his media credentials yanked his camera with they tried to pull the camera away this is something that organizers of this event really don't want to have sort of broadcast around the world any sort of international criticism what they want 7 is the appearance of donald trump on stage alongside motive they want to sort of diplomatic win if you will so the reason donald trump is here is well we know he's no stranger to mega rallies either the 2 of them have a very similar brand of politics they're going to be on stage side by side not only for the the diplomatic and p.r. aspect but also for economics they're trying to score a trade deal in advance of the u.n. general assembly one that donald trump needs because he needs
12:11 am
a win because of this prong trade with china modi needs it because of his sluggish economy but i can tell you that's not what people are focusing on at the moment right here in houston what they're focusing on is the clashes really between the 2 sides those that are concerned about not just donald trump but also not render modi in terms of his politics white house correspondent kimberly how can there for us in houston thank you kimberly. well speaking of tensions in kashmir and a remote part of indian administered kashmir is due to be ruled separately after new delhi revoked its autonomy last month that doc is divided almost equally between but ists and shia muslims and many in the region are welcoming the separation from kashmir but others are worried that their way of life is threatened up to reports. that duck a cold himalayan desert in northern india. here put this monasteries in the district a flurry happen standing tall for centuries. winters are harsh

people of laid off from tribal communities and many are concerned about the changes outside investment might bring to the local economy and culture reason. to islam is our backbone 2nd is agriculture we will not say no to outside investments but we have so many travel agents of own in many hotels are running. and so when our own people are suffering how will outsiders benefit. more than 200 kilometers away many muslims in cargo district are also anxious be include farmers like mohammad the boss. we are scared because genuine kashmir was earlier under protection and now that protection is gone you're scared that outsiders can come and buy our land outsiders who have a lot of money. most of the people living in cargill are shia muslims the
12:14 am
opposed splitting of indian administered kashmir and see they want see if god's will let's talk becomes a union territory or u.t. i tell my question today we're in a no man's land we didn't demand a u.t. status no one asked as it was imposed on us earlier we had land protection job security and we could make our own laws. the government is also working on several investment and infrastructure projects in the region how all these changes will affect people's lives here we can only wait and find out. the al-jazeera. place in pakistan suspect brake failure as the cause of a bus crash which killed at least $26.00 passengers children and soldiers are among the dead in the northwestern district of chess the bus was on a winding mountain when it collapsed and into an embankment 20 others on board were engines. well still ahead on out of there and the w.h.o. calls for

12:19 am
president has. started talks with rival political leaders aimed at easing the country's next prime minister neither prime minister benjamin netanyahu nor his main rival benny gantz could muster enough votes from majority government of more on the story let's speak to get ian levy who is a columnist at the ha'aretz newspaper he joins us live now from tel aviv mr levy president reagan has made it very clear that he wants a unity government what are the chances of that actually happening. right now we are stuck in a deadlock it's like this rubik's cube you look at. any combination seems to be impossible but it will take some time it least one party will have to give up a key least one major commitment in order to prevent another elections in israel and i wouldn't even exclude going for the sir the elections which will be within few months all the possibilities are on the table none of the responsible right now
12:20 am
or mr levitt does also seem that netanyahu his coalition that's kept him in power and repeatedly in power is fracturing has he finally come to the end of his 9 lives does he survive this it's a good question there will sphere is is if it's that twilight zone of his career those are his last days weeks months but nobody sees the scenario because there is no alternative right now which can form a government and it will take some more weeks or maybe months until there will be a new prime minister all the prime minister before is. how much was this election of voters about netanyahu as indictments for corruption and his his potential immunity from prosecution how many people voted on on that as the main issue. this was the main issue in this in this campaign i mean i would even say more than
12:21 am
this it was the only issue in this campaign not the patient will not the future of his. services or not the education system but really in ateneo yes or no it is really is really divided between those who believe in a tourney oh they see him as almost the founding father and those who seeing that this many score up to this man had created so much damage to israel that it's time for him to step down and this division line is still there well there were also some as you say very divisive statements made during that campaign including netanyahu an extra jordan valley in the occupied west bank where does all of this now leave the peace process it seems that the 2 sides are more far pop than ever. i'm not sure that there is a peace process i mean the peace process remain the holo words there is no peace process not before the elections or not after the elections if there is something
12:22 am
which unites both big parties in israel this is the believe or believe that there is any room for peace both parties are in favor of maintaining the status quo namely maintaining the brutal occupation of the west bank and the siege over gaza there's no difference whatsoever between blue and white and likud when it comes to the major issue to the elephant in the room the occupation they both want to continue it gideon levy a columnist at haaretz newspaper always good to have you on out of there mr levy. well there have been more protests in egypt demanding the resignation of president and. dozens of people were arrested after friday's much larger rallies which also denounced corruption oppression and poverty. reports i was mass protests may be a rare sight in cc's egypt crackdown on dissent is not. in
