8:00 am
fair so you know donald trump is trying to go on you know business as usual he wants to sweep all this on under the rug he's hoping that that statement will will do the trick meanwhile you have these. representatives and senators who are very troubled by by what's happened happening and i think that we're still in the very early stages of a prolonged kind of power struggle and i think it's going to intensify once the democrats take former conformal control of the house of representatives and in a couple of months ok so no clear path as yet from within america from here what pressure can forces outside america particular perhaps the e.u. other countries bring to bear on the u.s. to do more i think the crucial issue here is foreign direct investment so three words saudi arabia desperately needs foreign direct investment. if it were how if it wants any chance of
8:01 am
a vision twenty thirty succeeding and we know that mohammed in some money is very popular but his popularity also depends on his ability to carry the country forward in terms of the main structural weaknesses in socio economic terms such as youth unemployment youth unemployment and job creation is of course intimately related to foreign direct investment and this is actually it's not a particularly political per se but is this is actually the most important issue right now on mohammed it's on months desk how to attract this kind of investment and this kind of investment tends to be long term therefore investors are particularly concerned on political risk when they make these choices and and it's increasingly clear that they are so i think that these is the most important card to be played to understand to convey the. message that these kind of of
8:02 am
policies and this not only relates to also to the war in yemen and to the initiatives against qatar so aggressive foreign policy is choices are a problem for investors because they creased political risk so this is i think the most significant card left to play ok so good news that woman sama saudi crown prince will be attending the g. twenty summit in argentina towards the end of next week that's going to be quite an interesting event to watch isn't it. certainly and there's been some rumors that he will even meet to at present trump that remains to be seen of course but the president erdogan of turkey will be there as well so it's important to to remember this that this crisis trilateral crisis if you will it's it's primarily between president erdogan and and mohamed been some on with president trump really
8:03 am
playing an outside role because what we have seen so far is that the turks have not let up on the pressure of leaking these damaging details pertaining to the murder and details pertaining to to day operations leading up to the murders so so it is important to recognize that any sort of solution to this crisis lies in in ankara and it is on clear as of yet how this saudis and the turks can't negotiate between themselves now that all the details about these this murderous out in the open end and therefore i would caution that president trump is really more or less a sideshow because what he essentially did yesterday through his statement was to give space to decide the royal family to deal internally on how they want to proceed with this matter now that they know that sanctions are coming to saudi royal family need to discuss whether or not wanted been samana will remain crown
8:04 am
prince or maybe whether he will be removed from succession and the united states and turkey do not have any influence on that internal dynamic. going on that point about hacky from those i'm glad you've brought into it you say that all the details are out in the open mohammed is that the case or do you think techie has any more evidence that definitively links the saudi crown prince to this not. well the turks have been very strategic they've been systematically leaking information kind of this drip drip manner over the last several weeks and there have been a couple times where i've thought to myself that you know maybe that's it and then they've leaked more information so i wouldn't at this point be surprised if they have they have additional information that they've just kind of been biding their time waiting for for trump to release the statement and to even maybe see how things are playing out inside inside the u.s. congress. but i think that it does appear clear at this point that
8:05 am
you know we were a lot of people were waiting for the body to be found but it appears clear that the body is never going to be found because it was reports suggest it was do is dissolved in acid after it was dismembered. so from that standpoint i don't know that we're going to get any additional i don't i don't i don't know that we're going to get anything that explicitly and definitively links the crime to mohamed bin son and in the sense that you know there's you know some sort of d.n.a. evidence or some sort of you know smoking gun some sort of a statement from a saudi official that says muhammad bin son you know ordered this but with the evidence that we already have that certainly appears to be the case and we'll have to just wait and see over the next few days maybe a few weeks to see if the turks have additional evidence implicating muhammad in saddam and this is it do you think that the saudis have been surprised by the
8:06 am
strength of the global reaction to. given that the reaction to the war in yemen is somewhat new to it by comparison to think they will course initially of surprise the still find it pressuring the kingdom. yeah absolutely especially within you know the the decision makers to circle there was a lot of surprise at the backlash caused by these episodes especially as you said because other not only other policy choices and the victims of the yemen war but also other slightly similar cases all the rest of this events and other journalists where basically what left them know to so it was it was quite a surprise and also with the general public public in saudi they were surprised
8:07 am
there was this question just last lisa good i just want to get an idea from use you think the u.s. will ever change it stumps toward saudi no matter what it does. yeah i think you're i think it has and i think that if you look at king saul monts speech today before the shura council did day before yesterday you saw that there were some indications that saudi arabia is returning to record on court normalcy and one of those indications the call for peace talks with yemen sooty rebels the recognition of palestinian affairs and saudi arabia's traditional support for the palestinian cause and even what i'm hearing in washington and through my own networks this that the upcoming g.c.c. summit in riyadh which will take place on on december ninth that all the leaders of the g.c.c. countries will be there so so in other words we are expecting that the g.c.c. row will come to an end and i think that these are part of the kind of concessions
8:08 am

in doha the top stories on al-jazeera saudi arabia's foreign minister says the kingdom is united around its leadership as he angrily rejected reports about a change in the line of succession but reuters news agency says it stands by its story which said members of the royal family want to see crown prince mohammed bin salmond blocks from the throne after the matter of. the trump administration meanwhile is standing by saudi's rule is as she had written the reports from washington d.c. . even as the saudi foreign minister insisted investigations were ongoing into the death of jamal khashoggi it was clear one possibility was not to be considered but the journalist was killed at the order of the highest levels of the saudi government would have needed me to say that this was an operation that was that went wrong or people exceeded their authorities did something they're not supposed to do we have made it very clear that we're investigating that those who committed
8:12 am
this crime will be a prostitute justice and that procedures will be reviewed and was to make sure it doesn't happen again he also dismissed a reuters report that some members of the saudi ruling family wanted to block crown prince mohammed bin salman from assuming the throne he so outrageous comments that are being made are totally unacceptable and the kingdom of saudi arabia is unified on this issue the kingdom sanjay is committed to its leadership the kingdom of saudi arabia is committed to the vision that our leaders have put forth for us in terms of vision twenty thirty and in terms of moving along the path of reform of the pentagon u.s. defense secretary james mattis discussed the administration's reasons for backing saudi arabia despite calls for accountability for khashoggi is murder on the khashoggi affair he said presidents don't often get the freedom to work with unblemished partners in all things you don't mention the conflict in yemen if you want to end the war you're going to deal with saudi you can't say i'm not going to deal with them a rejection of the policy advocated by an increasing number of members of congress

to apply pressure on saudi arabia to end the war by ending the u.s. arms sales upon which its offensive depends matters a statements echoed the doctrine of spiles by donald trump and his statement on tuesday the us is strategic interest supersede all else and i'll give it the received a withering response from the editor of the washington post who published a market share g.'s articles i was astonished even after two years of kind of astonishing and dismaying things from this president this one was is really almost beyond belief and it's wrong on so many levels. i mean of course it's wrong to excuse the murder of. journalist. of any human being which he's doing but even on a strategic basis you know i mean he seems to see it is well we can't worry about things like morality and human rights because we need saudi arabia but for now the trumpet illustration seems impervious to criticism of its explanation of why it

this empty chair belonged to one of the finest minds of the twentieth century. in this study an american palestinian produced some of the most of the original modern writing and radical thinking that challenge western perceptions of the east. he was born in palestine under the british mandate but lived his early life moving between cairo and jerusalem where his roots remained throughout his illustrious life. he was edward signed the literature professor who

spent so much of his life feeling. of place. look he knew how bright he was he knew how valuable he was he knew how well he spoke and how brilliantly he wrote as a say a scholar an ordinary man's person you know very few. academics can do that. but i mean you know he had but he didn't live in palestine quote unquote you know his his life and that of his wife and i am was a near zero. of course he traveled all. but i think he he will rise to he was the voice of the people. edward cannot aswat and he in the dead that many and that you know sent to us walked into the yearly when the bear is it let the young in the coal and know matthew was lord lovel australian men don't know how it is written with that amity

a subjective account of the life i lived. as a record of an essential lost or forgotten world. edward saeeda started writing out of place in maine one thousand nine hundred four while he was recovering from chemotherapy for his leukemia it took him five years to complete. the book is both a biography of his early years in the arab world and then in the u.s. at school and university and a metaphor for the lives of millions of palestinians but their sense of exile and alienation. it is both.
