overnight as we've been reporting the migrants are still many hundreds of kilometers away so why then the urgency well as you say the migrants are a long way away it could take weeks before they arrive at the u.s. mexican border but perhaps the timing of this deployment has a lot more to do with the midterm elections next week than with those would be migrants on their way why i say this with president trump has been absolutely explicit that immigration should be the dominant focus of the term elections at every single rallies that tended to rally after rally he's made very clear that he's coming down very hard on immigration that it is a central part of the republican party's position in these midterm elections deploying troops just a week before the elections take place showing strength in his view of president trump categorizing the immigration caravan as an invasion as
president trump put it in a tweet today this is playing to politics it would appear rather than deploying forces to repel the immigrants when or should they arrive at the border mike thank you very much for that is mike hanna live in washington d.c. still ahead on the bulletin hate crime in the usa just want to play over the rise and racist attacks during the trumpet ministration. and jewish leaders in pittsburgh tell president trump that he isn't welcome there are at the synagogue shooting unless he starts targeting minorities. hello again welcome back to international weather forecasts well across the philippines we are watching typhoon you to make landfall here right now you can see

rang out i tried to see if i could go back to get the eight remaining people who were in the back of the congregation but i could tell the gun it was gunfire was getting louder it was coming up the stairs and i couldn't a can save those people the suspected shooter robert bowers appeared in court on monday the forty six year old faces twenty nine separate charges and could face the death penalty in another development a group of jewish leaders has published an open letter to president trump telling him he should stay away one exit reads president trump you are not welcome in pittsburgh until you fully denounce the white nationalism the president is jew in pittsburgh on tuesday we have no use for him. he's calling himself a nationalist the last of the liberal group that i heard of the call themselves nationalists were nazis at a white house briefing the president's press secretary told reporters don't trump has made his feelings on hate crimes clear the president has denounced racism
hatred and bigotry in all forms on a number of occasions will continue to do that i'm doing it here today and i would also say at the same time that some individuals they're grieving they're hurting the president wants to be there to show the support of this administration for the jewish community their rabbi said that he is welcome as well as this community continues to mourn the eleven people that were killed on saturday morning the first funerals a jew to take place on tuesday two brothers who were killed in what's described as the worst attack on the jewish community in u.s. history will take place meanwhile the phrase hate has no home here is springing up all across the city and gallacher al-jazeera pittsburgh pennsylvania. now the trumpet ministration and u.s. law enforcement officials have increasingly focused on external sources of widens but the government accountability office has found that it's actually rightwing white extremism that has proven to be the greatest source of domestic terror
attacks in the united states she now bhutanese reports. the mailing of pipe bombs to the democratic party establishment the killing of two african-americans at a supermarket in kentucky the murder of worshipers at a pittsburgh synagogue all of last week's attacks were committed by right wing extremists and that isn't a surprise given the statistics the have been several studies in recent years examining the source of extremist violence in the u.s. and their results differ depending on their methodology the conclusion is always the same the american right wing is responsible for most extremist violence in the us the government accountability office found seventy three percent of domestic attacks since nine eleven were carried out by right wing extremists university of maryland found islamic extremists killed fifty one people in that same period the far right one hundred thirty one and a historical anomaly appears to be occurring experts say that usually the right wing extremist groups increased during democratic administrations but declined
under republican administrations that does not appear to be happening under donald trump if the people in power are using narratives about victimhood to justify their political platform and because they're in power that political platform has they've got then the bully pulpit they've got the megaphone and everybody's listening. in elected political leader can still magnify those narratives about victimhood of that identity group none the less the trumpet ministration has been attempting to make the main focus of law enforcement islamic extremism while cutting back funding to combat far right extremists last week's attacks difficult motivation the pipe bomb was found was plastered in slogans supporting donald trump the pittsburgh synagogue attack was not a donald trump supporter dismissing him as a globalist rightwing shorthand for a person involved with a jewish conspiracy to control the world but that is the term trump himself has
been using as he pursues his election winning narrative of an existential struggle between real america. the democratic party mob every citizen benefits where we stop foreign countries from cheating our workers just what they've been doing the cold globalists they like they like the globe i like the globe to doldrum supporters are quick to point out that both his daughter and son in law are jewish so there's no way the president could be on the semitic but it is clear that he's normalizing extreme right wing rhetoric ahead of the november midterm elections to fire up his base and that helps explain why a group of progressive jewish leaders here have made it clear the president isn't welcome in pittsburgh until he denounces white nationalists. pittsburgh. to brazil now where the new president elect has announced his first foreign trip abroad he says he'll visit chile followed by the u.s. and israel also nahrawan more than fifty five percent of the vote in sunday's
election but many theer that he's bold push his rightwing populist agenda once and power choices about has more from rio de janeiro. and to know that lives in the largest. people living here have to deal with poverty and insecurity every day but now that jade was when i was elected president many are not sure of what's coming next. because we have seen a war here between drug traffickers and that affects our economy and scientists many shops had to kill us because they couldn't make it or fings or change investment in education that's missing here. we wouldn't have so many kids involved in drug trafficking was. also not who has promised to fight the crime wave that is killing thousands every year and to reinvigorate brazil's economy for years those who live in the five a less have voted for the center left workers' party but it was different this time
even though once when i know insulted in the past. people and minorities and could pass laws that would end up hurting the poor he has managed to get involved in father left leg best when the main reason is because he represents change johnny says that the economy is his main priority. of. the economy it has lost investors with the crisis but also not a lot about security or corruption but he hasn't talked much about the economy. also not who has promised to liberalize the economy privatized state companies and reduce the deficit he has also said that brazil will be closer to the united states and israel he's expected to be more aggressive with china. but analysts say it won't be easy for him to put into practice many of his campaign promises we're not going to be going to be so we should do whatever trump does because trump. quite
china because the united states have a. high debt in trade balance china brazil has very high there was great balance so it's not the same in chinese much more important for us or brazil or to china it's not quite big about anger towards the political class has helped to win the presidency but even though his violent scares many in brazil there are those who want their daily lives to change. i'll just cedar really jenny right. now in electing valsin are brazil has swung wildly to the right and there are fears that his victory is just part of the global turn away from liberalism both now as promised an iron fist to deal with crime and corruption and many a worried about his disparaging remarks about women and minorities he has been dubbed the trump of the tropics donald trump has faced criticism for his stance on
immigration but his supporters stand by his slogan of making america great again a rise in violent street crime in the philippines helped elect the third affair to date human rights watch says more than twelve thousand people have been killed and has worn drugs but he's as popular as ever. candidates have also swept to power across europe but the leader of italy's league party quickly made his mark as interior minister turning away boatloads of refugees and migrants and became hungry as prime minister on a promise to defend europe against muslim migrants. now the world's newest and largest airport has officially opened and turkey commercial flights began from istanbul airport on wednesday it's expected that by twenty twenty eight more than one hundred fifty million passengers will be using the airport every year alan fischer reports. they held the official opening of an airport that isn't yet
open when completed this multibillion dollar complex will take up space equal to almost all of manhattan and will be the biggest airport in the world the first flight into this airport brought president the one to the city back in june the first commercial flight will take off on wednesday but it could well be the end of the year before this airport is fully operational. it was the turkish president who performed the opening ceremony insisting the new airport forty kilometers from the center of istanbul is vital for economic growth some of what it was it is with the opening of the airport turkey has become the most important transit point between north to south east to west our ports is connecting sixty countries in this wide region and connecting economy is worth twenty three trillion dollars. new destinations. for many except the need for a new airport they've questioned the locations the cost and the number of workers killed to build opposition groups say there have been
a large number of deaths the government rejects that idea and rights watch has also criticised the government's approach to safety during the build claiming those who complain have been jailed. behind all the glamour of the opening ceremony there's a much sadder reality which is that thirty one workers are currently in prison just for protesting against poor working conditions and fatalities accidents on the work site. the one wanted to mark turkey's republic day with a grand gesture which is why hundreds of guests attended what is really a ceremonial start the ruden subway service to the new airport will be finished soon but the project itself isn't expected to be complete until twenty twenty eight alan fischer al-jazeera at istanbul's new airport.
i would animals have a problem and the headlines on al-jazeera sources have told al-jazeera that the turkish prosecutor's office isn't happy following its meeting with saudi officials neither side has handed over evidence meanwhile the fiance of journalist jamal khashoggi says she held saudi arabia responsible for his murder. you know on how you the need for a living and so i am deeply grateful for dishonored geraghty of people. i am however disappointed in the actions of the leadership in many countries particularly in the u.s. president revealed the truth and he should justice be served he should not pave the way for a couple. let's not let money taint our conscience and compromise our values the u.s. military is deploying more than five thousand troops including holders to the border with mexico as part of president campaign to stop the so-called caravan of central
americans from crossing into the u.s. . donald trump will visit pittsburgh on tuesday the same day that the first funerals will be held for the eleven people killed in a shooting in a synagogue there but members of the jewish community have written an open letter to trump saying he isn't welcome unless he fully denounces white nationalism the man accused in the shooting has been held without bail and after his first court appearance. most of us have been found after a passenger plane crashed into the java sea minutes after taking off from indonesia's capital on monday one hundred eighty nine people were on board the lion air flight. mexico's president elect is facing criticism for cancelling the building of a new airport in mexico city. manuel lopez obrador says he's respect the result of a referendum by the mexican people last week voters rejected the partly built thirteen billion dollar airport. most of the headlines on.
the inside story coming up next thank you for watching. another mass shooting in the united states eleven dead in a pittsburgh synagogue how worrying is the rise of right wing extremism in america . and does present trumps rhetoric fuel hate this is inside story. hello and welcome to the program. the number of reported hate crimes in the united
states rose in two thousand and sixteen the year donald trump was elected president the second consecutive year the figures have increased african-americans jews and muslims were all targeted last week a florida man was arrested off the mail bombs were sent some of trump's high profile critics and on saturday eleven people were killed in a synagogue in pittsburgh she had returned see reports on the latest mass shooting . it's a message of defiance and if the need to address the causes of right wing extremist bottoms was good at a multi-faith of the jewel in pittsburgh the sunday evening we will recognize this moment this is a moment when this nation needs to heal in the nation needs to come together under the common sense of how we stop of then it's like this from happening ever again. rabbi jonathan pohlmann was there as the shots rang out and attempted to help congregants to safety what happened will not break us it will not ruin
us we will continue to fly and sing and worship and learn together and continue our historic medic's legacy in this city with the friendliest people that we know. as police and swat teams responded it soon became apparent that this was a hate crime the suspected gunman robert bowers told police he wanted to kill as many jews as possible with an assault rifle and pistols thousand killed eight men and three women their ages range from fifty four to ninety seven american couple and two brothers among the dead during the course of his deadly assault on the people the synagogue bowers made statements regarding genocide and his desire to kill jewish people after a standoff with police powers eventually surrendered and remains in federal custody today. so our complaint charges powers with twenty nine separate federal crimes.
outside the tree of life so we've got people who've been laying flowers of the victims all day this is one of the oldest jewish communities in the u.s. there was to be no tolerance for interface semitism in america or for any form of religious or racial hatred or prejudice shortly after the shooting president trump calling for unity in a nation where hate crime is on the rise but in fact as investigators search bowers home for evidence there's now renewed focus on the rhetoric the president himself uses bows appears to have been triggered by a white extremist conspiracy theory about u.s. jews funding the caravan of central american migrants making its way through mexico a theme president trump himself has alluded to the president and his supporters however disavowing any linkage is donald trump instead musing that perhaps an armed guard may have prevented this massacre shepparton see al-jazeera pittsburgh. before we go to our guest let's remind ourselves of some of the other attacks one
woman died in charlottesville virginia when a car plowed into a crowd cheering rival protests by white supremacists and racists mosques became targets one in michigan was burned down another in arizona broken in two and a homemade bomb was detonated at an islamic center in minnesota african-americans were attacked by whites a university student in maryland was stabbed to death and a sixty six year old man in baltimore was killed with a sword immigrants were also victims a white man was kicked out of a bar in kansas city after racially abusing two indian men he returned and shot them killing one. let's now bring in our guest joining us in up lee new jersey we have steven rogers he's a member of the trump for president and vice reboard and a former member of the f.b.i. national joint terrorism task force in new york stocks copula c.e.o. of ben the arc that's a jewish. action group and in boston glenn call former deputy national intelligence
officer the charms national threats of the cia a warm welcome to you all starts a lot to start in new york with still. you've written this open letter also being the u.s. president donald trump to denounce white nationalism you'll very convinced that it's because of his rhetoric that's allowed the pittsburgh to happen why do you think i absolutely believe that this president and his administration and all of those who enable him have created an environment where so many of us are in danger jews are in danger muslim communities are in danger sic communities immigrant communities people of color communities trans communities all of us have been named explicitly and implicitly in the rhetoric in the. campaign. rallies that have been held we have been made to be known to the rest of this country as dangerous as menaces which we all know is not
true and what we also know is that when language and the vitriol and when the tone is so. when it is so elevated we can be certain that someone will take that tone as permission to create in cause violence what happened this weekend and actually what happened to that with the murders of the two black people in kentucky this week all of these are examples of what is inevitable when we have a president and when we have an entire republican party who refuses to denounce white white nationalism who refuses to renounce white supremacy and who create the conditions where people feel like they can act without repercussions our communities are being terrorized and this president needs to be held accountable but this is a very strong let's some could perhaps accuse you by saying that president donald trump is not welcome in pittsburgh of amping up the rhetoric and using the same
type of language as you're accusing the u.s. president of well i would i would frame it differently the letter says very clearly that trump and members of his cabinet and this administration would in fact be welcome in pittsburgh and everywhere else with this simple request that he and all members of the republican party denounce white nationalism that is in should be quite straightforward white nationalists are extremists white nationalists have been known to be called and are domestic terrorists there is absolutely no reason why the president of the united states and the republican party and its members should not have the common decency and the moral compass to simply say that white nationalism is not acceptable in the united states let me bring in stephen roach is a new jersey hey you've had to our guest as how to say president u.s. president donald trump is responsible for the rhetoric that's fueled the qana
hatred we've seen over the weekend would you agree with that. absolutely not the president of the united states and the republican party and democrat party and every decent living human being on this earth has denounced white nationalism bias and prejudice on the face of this earth that's number one number two look i've been in law enforcement for thirty eight years and i've learned one thing that those who commit acts of violence and crime they're the ones accountable and responsible for their actions we have gone through decades of violence on television violence on radio violence in the newspapers we've been fed in this country decades of violence from hollywood i mean look we have a culture that has been growing up for years on violence so it is unfair on unwarranted the to blame this on the rhetoric of the president of the united states and let me add this you have the jewish communities throughout this country do
support the president the prime minister of israel supports the president so at the end of the day this is not to be pinned on the president and his rhetoric or anybody else's rhetoric for that matter the people who committed these crimes acts of violence are responsible for that but the healing we have to begin and i agree this point we have to be grant begin to think about healing and it's going to be must begin in our elementary schools we must talk more and teach more about anti-semitism and prejudice we haven't been doing much of that and we should focus our attention on that like you say you've been in lawrence for spent thirty eight is you all saying that there is a violent of violence a culture of violence in the u.s. but nothing happens in a vacuum. where else can you is is the reason the pittsburgh shooting happened is because the shooter felt and enabled by a rise in white nationalism in the u.s. because he felt that the u.s.
president certain members of his administration have been sympathetic or at least understanding of white nationalists if not outwardly supporting the. well look i can't get into this individual's mind i mean there have been criminals who i have interviewed over the years who have said that. they have certain beliefs certain the ology that they believe in but never never have i heard anyone say well i blame it on one particular person one particular actress or actor or president or politician i think that's kind of using that person in this case the president as a scapegoat look that we have people all over this country look at the actors and even some of the sports figures calling out for violence eric holder maxine waters calling out for for people to commit violent acts against republicans i don't think they're responsible for some lunatic walking into a restaurant doing what they did a few weeks ago to mitch mcconnell and others so accountability and responsibility
is on the shoulders of those who committed the crimes let me bring in boston ahead and then call you had that the it was an individual lunatics who used. the how of the how much of this has to do with being able to operate much more openly now being able to say that i am a white nationalist and the full these are my beliefs do you think things have changed for the worse in the united states of america. i don't think so i know so it's not a question of my opinion or even. an informal assessment there's empirical data that demonstrates that this is the case for years the intelligence community has assessed formally that's includes the f.b.i. the cia all the law enforcement that the greatest danger to american lives and treasure in the united states comes from the far right militia vigilante groups
unfortunately or tragically terribly the intelligence community was not really allowed to say that clearly because according to the republican leadership who denied us the authorization to state that that would then tar quote unfairly the conservatives who are the republicans but that that is clear also just as when in sports your body goes where you turn your head similarly our thoughts go where our words lead us words have have imp practical physical material demonstrably will effect and to allege that statements that create a false equivalence between whites nationalists let's call them what they are racists and american fascists with people who oppose that is either disingenuous or naive it's a fact let me bring in new york hence toskala play you just heard but both our
guests have to say the defamation the reporting the rise in hate crimes has gone up by fifty was going to fifty seven percent a d. a big spike since the us president took over what's the language that the us president uses that worries you the most before the pittsburgh attack happens will you you alarmed by the kind of things that he was saying. yes i've been alarmed by this president from the moment he took office and in fact when he started his candidacy and i just want to double down on the words of the speaker who just spoke before me i really want to make sure that it is very clear that the jewish community seventy six percent of the jewish community did not vote for dollars from thirty percent of the jewish community only identify as republicans we are overwhelmingly a can pick a community that does not support this agenda this administration's agenda and the
language the rhetoric the rallies the incitement to mob violence the scapegoating this is creating a sense of permission for the individuals who do follow trump and this administration to act brazenly and to act as if they are not going to have consequences and because of that i think it is imperative that all of us around the country all of us who feel like we are in the crosshairs right now of a dangerous administration who is not interested in caring for our lives the lives of our families or communities in honor of those who were slain in pittsburgh in honor of those who are calling for donald trump to either renounce white nationalism and his party the republicans to now it's white nationalism or they are not welcome in pittsburgh i believe it's time that all of us across the country hold up that call as well that all communities who feel like we are targets of trump make it clear that neither he or anyone in the republican party is welcome in
our towns in our cities in our states unless they do the simple basic right thing which is to denounce white nationalism to make it clear that that is a party that does not want ties to these radical extremists but really these ideas are not only held any longer by extremists these are ideas that have become mainstream part of the republican party's platform overall and it needs to stop signal which is in new jersey is it time for the u.s. president to denounce what nationalism. he has he has denounced white nationalism and so has the republican party and let me add this one of our guests used the word mob well that word mob didn't come out of the president's mouth that came out of the mouth of some of the river the democrats that was maxine waters and that was eric holder they were the ones that said let's get the mobs after the republican leadership in the restaurants so you see that my point is is that look we can point the finger in the direction of the president or in the direction of the democrats
it's the person who commits the act of violence yeah we can do better we can work well together but what we must do is recognize the root cause of this problem has been going on for decades and decades and decades and we still have massive violence in chicago massive violence in baltimore that has nothing to do with the rhetoric that's going on my point is together we could work very well together if we start elementary school level start refocusing on the things that we need to focus on to stop violence and may i add one more thing it also begins in the home we've got to get parents engage with their children about all of the things that go on and this was a tragedy of all tragedies i've had in my lifetime this is the worst one and it should be a wake up call to everyone but let's. point the direction that we should to start healing these rooms playing call in boston. guest in new jersey steve merges is
saying that it needs to begin at home that perhaps hollywood is to blame full of this that there are a there's a culture of violence in the u.s. that's perhaps of playing the role of this is it also to do the fact that the u.s. has some of the most lax gun control laws in the world is gun control a pos of this as well the ease of availability of weapons. well what we just heard are the tired old. shell game rationalizations when the facts are pretty clear statement that guns don't kill people people kill people is is part of this whole silly trope tragic trope. what are guns intended to do they're designed to kill people if people didn't have guns would guns kill people the answer is no there is a clear again imperiously demonstrably overwhelmingly proven relationship between the availability of guns and the number of people who are killed by them in europe
dozens of people per year in a are killed by handguns in a population that's larger than the united states in the united states it's twelve thousand per year what is the one difference between the two societies to civilizations or societies is the availability of guns so this business that it's because of video games or violence being condoned or not talked against in the home is dissembling it's for the simple word for it is that it is a lie again either it is naive because it sincerely believe but wrong or it is misleading the facts are clear guns lead to death and gun control will reduce it that's just imperiously the monster demonstrated. there in new york this was very much about two about racism about anti semitism but you'll concerns a slightly larger than that in that you feel the minority communities are being targeted under this administration i'm going to toss you about the gun control laws
do you think that would have helped or do you think the hatred would simply manifest itself in a different way. well i believe that we absolutely are country that needs to have an entire transformation on how we are approaching the issues of gun violence and gun control i absolutely agree we need to have a very different and aggressive set of reforms that in fact most gun owners most members of the n.r.a. most folks who actually use guns for things like hunting and to provide food for their family they too also want for there to be commonsense solutions so that people aren't using guns to murder and accidentally cause deaths i do believe as well that the slaughter of eleven people on saturday morning during a prayer service when a baby was being named that that did happen at the hands of an individual who was
wielding a gun and i also do believe that the hatred in the bigotry and the ability to dehumanizing an entire community of people entire communities of people mean that there will be individuals who are given a platform by our leader in this country the president of the united states who calls them fine people that these individuals will find ways to harm and injure and kill others of us who this president the republican party and many others have deemed to be. people who don't matter people whose lives are not worth saving are caring about so yes it's true i do very much believe that we need to have a very different set of gun reforms in this country and there are fantastic organizations that are doing that work i do want us to keep a focus on the fact that this violence happened because we have as
a country created an environment where certain communities are deemed to be more disposable indispensable than others and for all of us who are in the crosshairs of this administration this administration who is too cowardly in this moment to simply denounce white nationalism right now today let's have everyone just say white nationalism is not acceptable in the united states we will not do we want to get as we are running out of jena will not i'm going. to come in there because we already do want to get you all again stephen roach is this two questions i really want to ask you his gun control do you need little gun control would a good guy with a gun have been able to stop the attack in pittsburgh and secondly why doesn't the president denounce white nationalism in clear terms in the wake of the pittsburgh. ok once again i must tell here that he has denounced white nationalism as has the
republican party he's done that a few times so that's already been done and if he needs to do it again and i believe he does i'm sure he's going to do it again but regard to gun control yes the prior speakers right there should be common sense gun regulations or some sort of guidelines that could keep guns away from mentally deranged people but let me say this chicago has the toughest gun control laws in the nation the highest murder rate by guns baltimore high murder rate by guns washington d.c. one of the toughest murder rate by guns the fact that a matter is and look i've been involved in a shooting i've seen victims who have been on the other end of a gun barrel and had they had a gun in their hands maybe some of them would be alive responsible gun owners with guns as we've seen this past week by the way will will put an end to these people who are coming in and at the very least minimize more violence if a person did have a weapon in the synagogue well who knows what would have happened to bring it and
we are running out since we already have that one but let me just bring in boston today and then call i saw you shaking your head it was steve rogers was saying why are you shaking your head well this is another imperiously proven mistruths and false statement all of the data shows that the possession of guns actually by people who think that it will lead to their self help for self-defense leads to an increased danger of their being them being harmed by by somebody else with a gun or violence. it doesn't it does not make one safer it puts one in greater danger that's simply imperiously proven. thanks to all august save norges glenn call install and thank you too for watching you can see the program again any time by visiting our website al-jazeera call and for further discussion go to our facebook page that's facebook dot com forward slash a.j.
