israel heads to a 2nd election after prime minister benjamin netanyahu fails to form a government. i'm richelle carey this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up. later made in saudi arabia for an emergency meeting to discuss the escalating tension between the u.s. and iran. the plight of stateless people in the u.n. holds a meeting in bangkok to the buys a plan to help millions across the world. and we'll have the story of a boy hero in italy. who helped save the lives of his classmates but now he is fighting for citizenship. for the 1st time in israel's history parliament has voted to dissolve itself and call a 2nd election just 7 weeks from the last poll or minister benjamin netanyahu failed
5:05 pm
to form a coalition government before a midnight deadline the new vote will be held in september kerry fosset reports from west or islam. only but after a bruising final day trying to magical last minute coalition deal benjamin netanyahu is face said it all veiled she beamed out of. niggas israeli parliament and netanyahu urging voted to dissolve itself and take israel into an unprecedented 2nd election in the same year it's now his best hope of cleaning on to power but he insisted voters shouldn't blame him the blame belongs to his former defense minister avigdor lieberman partial global amount of you don't even want to travel it must more it is just unbelievable just unbelievable avigdor lieberman is now part of the left he is from the left blog you give him votes for the right but he doesn't give his poke to the right wing government this is what we see. lieberman needs a secular party opposed to what he calls attempts to make israel
5:06 pm
a religious state he was insisting on the passage unchanged of a bill that would increase the numbers of ultra-orthodox jews being drafted for national service the ultra-orthodox parties also a key part of any right wing coalition want the law softened the women held firm and the coalition was doomed liquid. the could has failed in this task to form a coalition to form a government together with their turn to the altar orthodox they bear full responsibility for the fact that israel is now going back once again to an election failure to form a coalition would usually put the question back in the hands of the israeli president he would then select a member of the knesset in all likelihood a different one and give that person the chance to form a government but these aren't normal times benjamin netanyahu is facing pending indictments in 3 separate corruption cases in order to give him the best chance of fighting that off only the top job will do last weekend tens of thousands took to the streets of tel aviv for a rally against netanyahu is apparent attempt to legislate immunity from
5:07 pm
prosecution and ensure the courts couldn't overturn such a law once passed with his 1st indictment here. in june october even if you wins the september election and manages to form a government and he hopes of ensuring immunity would be seriously dented it might make it harder for you but he's. very. strong. heikki political capabilities so it's not his last word for sure he will try to maneuver opposition leader benny gantz so as the elections are all about netanyahu is bid to survive prosecution the judge they will indeed but. really this is all happening for only 2 words only 2 words legal fortress there is no other reason here. dance was more to declaring victory early on election night in april but now it's clear. premature the fight he
5:08 pm
thought he'd won 7 weeks ago as months left to run. al-jazeera west jerusalem senior white house adviser is in israel where he's expected to meet with the prime minister has been touring the middle east to build up support for his plan for israel and palestine has already met leaders in jordan and morocco sure has scheduled a conference in bahrain next month reset and they'll be economic portion of his proposal to talk about all these issues akiva eldar joins us he's a senior columnist at our monitor he joins us on skype from tell of a way appreciate your time very much so 1st of all talk about benjamin netanyahu is legal troubles did not keep them from the top spot this last time in this this uncharted territory there and well his legal troubles make a difference this time coming up. i'm not sure that it will make a big difference even if netanyahu decides which i not expect will happen to give it up and to wait until this is over i mean the indictment
5:09 pm
and the hearing. the rights and all to doc's block that we see now which has 65 seats in the knesset if you count in limit because lieberman said it very clearly that he is not going with guns he is not part of the left so the balance of power between the 2 blocs is not going to change . and then tell you how probably will pay some price for lying to the public because he made a clear commitment before the elections before april 9th that he is not going to hide behind immunity and he's not going to form a person a law just to save his neck and it's clearly now because everything is on record and there are people still even in the right honest people. don't like what they
5:10 pm
see and the other thing is the fact that he didn't allow someone else to try and form a government even from his own party because a blue and white gowns made it clear that he is willing to work for him to join a unity government. without missing isn't it and i was to know it could be a very strong unity government one from 35 members of the likud and 35 members of the blue and white race which is 70 was out the older dogs and was out the radical right so with all of this uncertainty happening right now in the knesset and of course jerry question or is there donald trump's son in law saying your advisor has been working on has plan for for palestine and israel what does this mean for. any type of actual anything real to happen with that plan whether so much uncertainty right now with the leadership and israel you know because of the
5:11 pm
events in bahrain we look like a wedding party was the groom and even with the rabbi over the difficulty of the priest harassing the group the groom which is the palestinian on the scene yes and this is a joke and it's just circus if he. was not so said we couldn't give a good laugh wretch is you that. i will not be surprised if they if from will put it on hold and maybe even the fairies and the saudis who are already cited to join this very weird party will put it on hold until the political sky clear up in israel. so for i understand you're saying that you don't think that this particular conference
5:12 pm
coming up about bahrain carries a lot of weight anyway but what would benefit. what it seems that donald trump and jerry kushner want what would benefit them politically for to happen in israel right now in a far for benjamin netanyahu to to gain more power and that would benefit them to carry out whatever this plan is they have. i think that they were taken by surprise as most of the israelis that this was happening i think that day off to the middle east when it looked like that netanyahu is going to form a new government so it's guy it's just a part of the protocol and i am not be surprised if not slightly embarrassed to take the photo which is a lame duck prime minister that is actually what he's doing no is destroying the hope of peace by holding the tax revenues from the palestinians and
5:13 pm
this is another issue i don't know if the status quo so-called a very fragile status quo was in gaza and the west bank will survive until september just keep in mind that the budget of the palestinian banks are empty people are not getting their salaries of getting half of their salaries i don't know if we'll keep paying the bills instead of israel doing it in gaza so i i am very very concerned about what is going to happen between us and the palestinians and in next few months a lot of them a lot of implications from the sensor into their liking elder thank you very much thank you rachel. tension between washington and tehran are the focus of a series of meetings taking place in saudi arabia over the next 2 days foreign ministers an organization of islamic cooperation have been meeting in the city of
5:14 pm
jeddah and more the 1st of 3 major gatherings of leaders one objective to find a way of reducing tension in the middle east it's difficult at a time when divisions within the region run deep made worse by the battle of rhetoric between the united states and iran the hosts for these talks saudi arabia has made its position clear. we emphasize the need to exert more if it's to combat the subversive activities of extremist terrorist groups they must be addressed with all strength and firmness. a reference there to damage to 4 vessels including 2 saudi oil tankers off the coast of the united arab emirates earlier this month and drone attacks on saudi oil installations 2 days later the saudis had accused iran of ordering the drone attack which was claimed by new things in yemen
5:15 pm
in the run up to these talks by foreign ministers from the organization of islamic cooperation john bolton the u.s. national security advisor visiting the u.s. he said naval mines almost certainly from iran we used to attack shipping but he didn't refer to any evidence adding who else would you think is doing it somebody from nepal iran's foreign ministry dismissed bolton's remarks as a ludicrous claim and the supreme leader ayatollah ali how many reasserted we will not negotiate with america because negotiation has no benefit and carries harm. before the talking started in jeddah it emerged that capsules prime minister abdullah bin nasa bin khalifa lanny will attend g.c.c. and arab league sessions on thursday it will be cattles 1st high level contacts with saudi the u.a.e. bahrain and egypt since the fall states imposed an and land and sea blockade on the
5:16 pm
country nearly 2 years ago the 4 states had accused cats of supporting terrorism accusations vehemently denied by category leaders the united states wants to see an end to the blockade on cata i would hope that they could work out some of these things because they have essentially they being the saudis destroyed the gulf cooperation council it's a paper organization now it never was for middle but now it's almost nothing because of this bitter fight within the ranks of its own members this is not a way to assure security in the gulf and it's not a way to present iran with those solid front from as it were the other side of the ocean whether this could be a 1st step towards repro small is unclear but the immediate effect of cattle is involvement here could result in a broader debate over relations with iran andrew symonds. delegates from

more than 15 asia pacific countries are in bangkok for a un meeting on statelessness are expected to pledge action ahead of a global gathering in geneva and october at the un refugee agency estimates there are at least 10000000 stateless people worldwide and a 3rd of them are children when the state was for many reasons in many cases it's because of ethnic and religious discrimination that's the case with a muslim from me and maher then describes them as the most persecuted minority in the world scott haidar has more from bangkok. well so far today on the agenda really is kind of discussions about best practices what has worked and hasn't worked in these 15 nations in asia in the pacific who have come here for this meeting so they're discussing through this so they can kind of share ideas and share what has worked for them and what needs to be focused on not to discuss this further we're going to bring in melanie khan and she is the head of u.n.h.c.r. that's a refugee agency statelessness what really does that mean you know we know refugees

and analysis and the reasons for the decisions we made we chose those words carefully and the work speaks for itself and the report is my testimony. i would not provide information beyond that which is already public in any appearance before congress house democrats had wanted miller to testify about all he learned during the 2 year long investigation one legislator implied muller's a potential appearance may not be as important as what he has already confirmed president donald trump interfered in the investigation if mahler wanted to exonerate the president from having committed the crime he would have said so instead the special counsel makes clear that obstruction of justice which he found substantial evidence of is a serious crime to stripes at the core of our justice system muller has been criticized for not charging trump with the structural despite new reports saying he
5:28 pm
had considered doing so to the special counsel explained why he didn't under long standing department policy a president president cannot be charged with a federal crime while he is in office that is unconstitutional even if the charge is kept under seal and hidden from public view that too is prohibited a special counsel's office is part of the department of justice and by regulation it was bound by that department policy charging the president with a crime was therefore not an option we could consider muller also underscored a couple of points he said there's no doubt the russian government meddled in the 2016 race and muller did not criticize the way attorney general bill barr handled the release of the final report despite many stories he thought bar had mischaracterized his team's conclusion trump quickly reacted on twitter nothing
5:29 pm
changes from the report there was insufficient evidence and therefore in our country a person is innocent the case is closed thank you. some congressional democrats say the time for impeaching tromp is at hand but the house speaker refuses to go that far we do want to make such a compelling case such an ironclad cast case that even the republican senate which at the time seems to be. not an objective jury will be convinced of the path that we have to take as a country to be clear moeller did not clear trump of wrongdoing but he also made it clear while he can't hold the president accountable there are others who can do so if they want rosalynn jordan al-jazeera washington and gary in police have launched a criminal investigation after a tourist boat sank on the danube at least 7 people are confirmed dead and another

a military training center. activists in brazil are promising to continue their fight against cuts to the education budget that prompted mass protests earlier this month a part of a raft of measures the government says are necessary to get the country out of its financial crisis but opponents say they're an attack on critical thinking and a report from sao paulo to see. if the brazilian government said it's freezing 30 percent of what it calls discretionary spending public universities state high schools university hospitals and research grants but there's more at stake some say than just the budget cuts now. you can manipulate the budget but the intention here is to change the identity inside the universities critical groups or in the universities for all governments not just the specific one it's an ideological attack using finances. these students are preparing for
5:32 pm
a long fight over the value i personally think that this government won't back off but we won't give up it won't just be one demonstration this is not just affecting the students but the whole society. they started saying that universities don't do research on our places of disorder that represent only expense for the government parts not true. and the long term effect someone could be drastic. going to meet a society without knowledge has to go into reverse when you destroy knowledge you lose independence and start depending on others. already strained public education buildings they say will fall into further disrepair many here see this is more than just to come to the public education budget they see it as part of an ideology designed to undermine free and independent thinking and attack on those who think differently to them. the 1st protests when the cuts are announced earlier this
