west jerusalem this sunday just days after his reelection by recommending a candidate for the prime minister of israel they say they're recommending benny gantz to be that prime minister it's the 1st time since 1992 that such a grouping has made such a recommendation and i'm annoyed i said it was after years of being diligent to my eyes by the administration of benjamin netanyahu that they had to take part they had to act to end that era but look at us alone who are not with the we usually do not endorse israeli prime minister is so without doubt there is an historical side to what we are doing now we want to put an end to the era of benjamin netanyahu therefore will endorse spinny gantz to form the next government a minute it also made it clear that this wasn't just about removing benjamin netanyahu is also a reflection of a shift in opinion among palestinian israelis polls show a real appetite for greater engagement in israeli politics more results from their

modi and the u.s. president donald trump the event in houston dubbed how do you know d. is a rare show of support for a foreign leader on u.s. soil with a presidential election due in 14 months trump appearance at the rally could help improve his image in one of america's most multi ethnic cities and our white house correspondent ed how kit joins us now from that event in houston and so it can be one of both leaders hoping to gain by appearing at this rally. well for donald trump part he definitely is looking to improve his image with the 4400000 indian americans and 50000 of them are roughly packed into this football stadium behind me this is a left leaning state increasingly and donald trump needs this conservative support so for him it was that but for a nigger prime minister modi never in her modi this was
4:13 am
a controversy in terms of standing alongside donald trump on that stage he's gotten a lot of international criticism for his you know sort of broad and sweeping efforts to strip autonomy from kashmir for the fact that there's been a rise of attacks against religious minorities under his government inside india and as a result many people here felt that this was a good effort to kind of sequel agenda mysie on the international stage appearing alongside donald trump so that's what's made this visit rather controversial as a result there are many people who feel that this is something that the u.s. government should have pushed back on you have to remember that prime minister modi one time was not allowed into the united states wasn't granted a visa a lot has changed since then but that is still something that continues to haunt him the criticism that he has this sort of hindu nationalist brand of politics very similar criticisms in a way though the fact that many people compare him to donald trump in terms of that
4:14 am
nationalism perspective here in germany there were actually some process outside the rally was. yeah we experienced that 1st hand in fact the organizers of this event really sought to kind of downplay the criticisms of modi by making this kind of a feel good public relations event designed to kind of being this positive image of the 2 leaders standing alongside on the stage together but as we tried to film some of the protesters that were here and that's when things got a little messy in fact one of the supporters began to try and yank our credentials began to try and grab the camera from our photographer vengefully the police had to move in had to try and separate these protesters as we were in order to keep broadcasting given our own little sort of secluded area it really underscores the tensions that exist here how passionate many of the people are here in the united

my labor remaining will remain and their labor sort of risk lots and pieces of a company assisting is that by trying to please a group of voters who almost they would label whatever. members will voters will come in later in their droves and you see from the slight uptick polygamy's got from that revokes policy last week that the. as a real and present danger. even before conference began there was an unexpected push by called loyalists to scrap the role of deputy leader held by tom watson who insists labor must adopt a clear and bricks it stance. will intervene to stop that move but on monday conference is set to vote on competing motions on breaks of policy labor government will address the rather to this of course. and despite the clear promises on things britain's care deeply about it's far from clear labor can come up with a bricks it stance that will win over undecided voters if a snap election is called between barber al jazeera brighton now the ground symbol

are the latest headlines talk to al-jazeera is coming next hour back with the headlines in 25 minutes. michael. you can. see. it is an ambitious story but easy as hopes to help change his country through the medium of dockets is the 1st mexican to hold the prestigious role of lead principal dancer at the english national ballet 2 years ago he was named best male dancer a bunny's equivalent of the oscars. and on days along with his 10 brothers and
4:22 am
sisters who's talked to daunce by his father in the backyard of their home in guadalajara despite living and performing across the world since he was 13 his heart remains in mexico. he recently appeared in a greenpeace film about protecting the oceans. and is a cultural ambassador for his country persuading world call stances to perform and teach that this weekend and as discusses with us the joy adults or the arts in mexico urgently need government support and how young people should have the chance to realize that dreams lead principal of the english national ballet the 2nd hand as talks to al jazeera. these are commands us thank you for talking to al-jazeera i wanted to start by asking you how you would describe dancing to someone who's never seen
4:23 am
a ballet or never take an adult's call because essentially believe excessive will to everyone it's almost a basic human right by the. green grew with that statement and actually i consider it a human right something that it's an instinct that we'll have you know we've been dancing for a very long time i think from the beginning of time we've done. for really really just purposes we dance for recreational purposes and. i think that it's. fine to an instrument. that allows you to feel a freedom that there is only certain ways to access you know life and that's one thing through the physical experience and that's why for me ballet it has been so exciting at different points of my life because when i was just starting to dance it was purely recreation when i started to understand the mechanics and the techniques behind it and it started realizing how bad it was pushing my physical
4:24 am
ability to the limit and to discover new limits that was just pure excitement and i the moment that i failed that on a stage then i understood what freedom meant to be able to stand in an empty space to create. moments that are not timetable that are us real for the audience and for the person creating those moments he had such an unusual childhood he come from not particularly wealthy family you were educated at home and you grew up in mexico which of course isn't exactly known for encouraging mail but it was your father who made sure you were exposed to it on almost a daily basis i think that was the only reason why you ended up being a ballet dancer when you say i had the fortune of having both my parents the next ballet dancers and my dad faced a very different sort of reality when he decided to be a dancer his father was an architect very traditional sort of. cliché
4:25 am
and he said you're in never going to be going to go to school and you're going to be an architect like myself and your brother it's up there so i leave my ground father died when my dad was 16 years old and he asked mother for a little bit of money to move to mexico city to the cup to pursue his dream but that meant that he was basically expelled from his family and he had to find a way of making a living and pursuing these this dream so when we fast forward to when when he started the family 11 children and later with few going to go means my parents decided that downs could be a way you. teaching or some valuable rules basically could help us in life and also a son opportunity to maybe aspire to have a better life and in that sense my parents decided to teach us at school at home
4:26 am
also school because 11 children. are very expensive for school and my parents were not very keen on sending us to the public system. so obviously at that point in my. very crazy idea that already they living children were causing issues among my parents' families but but it turned out that time prove them right because they were able to give us a chance to pursue things that we were passionate about so we were taking piano lessons at home we were having a martial arts teacher coming to teach us my dad was in charge of several subjects my mom was doing and the rest of the subjects we learned english with. and we spoke about politics philosophy that my friends were my brothers and there was those over and there was a great thing you know once we would turn. the age 1516 you could have the choice
4:27 am
to go to a high school or to university or to dedicate your time to piano or dance or things like that and that gave us a lot of time to be able to build on on our own are our passions and they all took. several different roads but my brother stephen and myself fell in love with dance we were actually the least talent that physically. but we were we were in love with bands with the mechanics of it and the stories that made that word was telling us and that's what made us fall in love at that point we didn't have any sort of reference in dance in mexico there was the national company but we were very isolated from from or was happening so we started in the backyard we started taking classes amongst our brothers and siblings and my dad thought that
4:28 am
we could possibly have talent so we started doing international competitions on national competitions and when we came on to the world of dan's we realised that we had done something different worse creating a sort of steer. yeah i mean it's fascinating he literally to chew in the back garden with a railing as the bar and it was a race. it's where my where we would hang the clothes and we were only doing buyer because we had no more real space for center also the floor and inclination for the water to run and i remember my dad at that point he was telling me don't worry i'm training you for you to be able to bounce of the you know the stage is a little bit incline and when i finally arrived to the paris opera dance in the paris opera i made sure my dad was there to see it to see it happen because i mean if you if you fast forward in those years and everything that we went through to be
4:29 am
there it sounds a little bit like a miracle. when you were 13 you won the scholarship to go and study darts in philadelphia in the u.s. how did it feel at that age to go to a foreign country when you've been in a bubble as you say your siblings is as your friends and suddenly you're out there with just your sister as a companion in a foreign place i remember at the beginning. it's very scary because they don't speak english very well i was the youngest in the school in the dormitory so that's why my sister was with me and they were separate thing so everybody was looking at me differently and treating me differently so in that sense it was good and bad i wanted to be normal as possible but i also want to to excel at what i was doing so it was an interesting it was an interesting time it god really hard for me there in philadelphia 2 years after i had arrived i go to her need a disk in my back and i was going through my teenage years. and then it
4:30 am
got serious i started to think about my life without down's i started. to see a real possibility to be able to convey told me that you might not want to get in there i mean you didn't dance for you x. . that was the hardest thing that at that point in to that point i indestructible you know i felt like it was only a matter of time for me to reach my dream job or to be able to dance in the companies that i was hoping for and all of the sudden after one of wonder herschel i couldn't i could hardly walk i lost all the strength in my leg and it was an injury that it's not meant for a 15 year old and usually happens much later in life so i spent 3 months just laying and getting up only for the essential things and those 3 months were mentally very difficult because obviously you go from jumping around and seeing that sort of freedom and that sort of confidence that that dance was giving to my
4:31 am
to my identity to not having anything really and i know appreciate having gone through that because i understood one thing very clearly that i did not want to stop dancing very dark period particularly for 15 year old he also went through a rather dark period when one of your brothers died in a car crash but did they experience is painful of course joyful experiences do they help in your performance in any way i mean do you actually use the experiences to live a complicated i've had i do think about those things quite often because the very things that change your life forever and one of the most a scary thought i had when i started travelling west to receive a phone call like that you know but at that point i learned that i had a price to pay that the old way of living had the price to pay and he was that you would miss out on many things with your family and you would miss out all the time
4:32 am
. with my brother but at the end of the day. it's a matter of. life and being able to. show yourselves on a stage. not only. physically or artistically but also. with integrity and in order to do that i have to be able to do accept that there was a part of me in that situation happened that situation nice press and with me when i'm on a stage regardless of the role sometimes some roles don't need that sort of heavy stuff but it does 'd give my person and my artistic person a sense of weight because i understand the consequences now making choices in life and i understood that very quickly. you've lived such
4:33 am
a healthy life away from mexico you have seen a very proud passionate person about your country when you look at what it's going through now with the violence the corruption the drug gangs the fair total trumps infamous how does that make you feel about your country so i must be quite tough it's a it's a conflicting feeling because they're realities about mexico no matter how. many turns to. we cannot ignore really there are real issues in my country that need to be addressed for a very long time now it's been very violent it's been very corrupt so i have never tried to cover that up but i have always been hopeful for my country because i recognize and this incentives people that gives me hope and that made me go back and say there is people here that are worth. working for and we
4:34 am
need to be able to do it. well. there was an inspiration to go back home to do things different to do things without political and to do things for the well being of individuals the future of the country where you did that you set up and a project which essentially brought international dancers to mexico they would perform a teaching workshops to try to inspire young mexican children but i know that the funding the government funding has now been withdrawn and the projects had to finish is there a sense do you think that the arts culture it's not taken seriously enough or respected enough i think it goes through cycles and that's what i'm trying to break i would like for this to continue your on in cycles because then you cannot plan for the future and you cannot see the benefit of the arts in society if you
4:35 am
don't give them time to grow. and a lot of a lot of times in a country like mexico arts and culture can be interpreted so many different ways and to ear government you mean said different thing it can mean popular culture it can mean traditional craft or or it could be can see there as elitist if you are talking about high art and music and dance and theatre and things like that so i've gone through a few. a few different political parties that have been called the time when i started building this project and my main goal had always has always been with them is that peace to see beyond that these to see beyond their 6 year term to see beyond where what they can get out of it or supporting something like these and for them to be able to give time an opportunity for these
4:36 am
children to pursue the pursuit of passion. in order for that to happen i knew that they needed to have a point of reference and not only the government but also our society in mexico because when i started thinking why why was the reason for the dance not to be taken more seriously i started seeing that a lot of the things that we know about down's goes through generations in mexico so one of the most popular sayings in mexico is if you are an r.t.s. you're going to starve and the other one is that don't do ballet and that's that by ladies hopi is not a serious profession so based on those 3 main issues that that get passed through generations and or so that the 1st thing that needed to happen is to change the mind of the parents for them to feel. like their kids passion ace could be a profession and you could make
4:37 am
a decent living out of it and you could dedicate your life. to the arts and not considered waste and see the benefits as well in the rest of this is coming to the u.k. understood the value of the arts for our economy and i saw huge potential in mexico that was not being can see there in that sense so i started to promote a different way you've seen arts not only as a tool for the creation but as a tool for social mobility so that a kid that starts dancing in the backyard can. living improve his life and by consequence improve the whole country what would you say to people who say mexico's got so many issues to deal with it's that artful top priority that you have to prioritize government funding and it should be going to the arts how would you respond to that and through why the arts are important i think like like i was
4:38 am
saying earlier there are many ways of looking at them and what you cannot the ninety's the benefit that it gives to an individual and how that these complements the tool that he's fundamental for the development of the of the human essence i think the. empathy that that. willingness to allow yourself to feel to connect with other people without words with body language with. previous experiences to share those experiences to be able to sit and create or simply to have. a space in your brain where you can be with yourself and be at peace aids. every day is more valuable for for an individual to have those those refuge. in our in our brains so in that sense for me has been a very very literal thing because it literally includes improving my way of life my
4:39 am
family and all my close circle and bad for people 'd that are for example in the government that are worried are so many issues that are facing mexico at the moment. i think that they can appreciate those qualities and installing those qualities in the youth to be able to allow them the freedom to believe in their dreams in their imagination to be able to have. the potential least to have those refuge in their brain to be able to collaborate to work with each other to know what he's like to be consistent to be disciplined to be passionate about something i find there is a huge sacrifice when a person is forced to giving up their passion or their dream for doing something that is expected of them and i find that terrible and i find that one of
4:40 am
the main issues of our society in mexico is that there are too many people doing too many things that they don't like to do so in that sense i think it's worth giving it a go and given a chance to a kid to imagining that anything's possible and that once you have that the ones that kid has that certainty then you just have to sit back and wait to see what he creates for the future but if he hasn't not that opportunity if he does and how that i mean in his mind then he's just bound to repeating the vicious circle that the government is trying to break in other ways. what patients do you have left especially when you decide to stop dancing and i'm hearing you speak such passion i think possibly politics. i mean it's a secret. mission and i've always been passionate about politics. i've been fighting for all these projects to to remain as higher away. as possible us
4:41 am
from politics because i believe that we need long term planning for cultural projects in mexico to have a real impact so my job has been to be able to not take away the responsibility from the government from supporting and making art accessible bad to encourage also the private sector to build together with the government and the support to me because he's everyone's responsibility in mexico we have a sense of i don't know if you translates well but that. when you expect everything from the government. and that's the case in the arts and i'm against that as well i believe there has to be a combination of both so in that sense it's been politically possible to be able to get. different parts of the society to collaborate together. but i've recently got into cinema i made
4:42 am
a film last summer with. and i loved it. obviously got to work with 2 of the greatest. mass so i was very lucky in that sense but i got all their opportunities a good offer serious to make a serious now as an actor. have another film i'm starting to shoot so that opened up a whole different side of side of things that i would like to to explore and that works at the moment because i can make it work with my career i don't know if i can fit it. in between of the fairly i would like to be able to continue to influence and create opportunities in mexico as far away from politics as possible the arts is of an obvious place for you to be campaigning but you also recently made a film film with greenpeace. are you something out of our mental activists to think wanted you to screen peace and when they approached me through the director of the
4:43 am
