3:00 am
it's about the iranian policies but it doesn't necessarily agree with the way to deal with iran iran is a neighboring country a very important neighboring country other countries in the region like qatar and kuwait also have different policies towards the around that are different from saudi arabia and the emirates and the only way that we can co-exist and live together in this region is through negotiation through dialogue for all inclusive this and not for confrontation or wars or threats and that's an important point to make up because in terms of gulf unity i mean clearly the saudis want to see consensus over iran and how much of a problem will this be for states like come on where you are also kuwait you just mentioned them who clearly want to be on neutral ground and see their role as mediators and not taking sides. well there is in my opinion there is such as yours flawed from the u.c.c. states flawed because in one sense. they don't want to talk to your own iran has
3:01 am
asked for a dialogue and they don't want to sit on the table and talk to your own and sort out all the issues that we have for the iran on the other hand they are instead of uniting and unifying the gulf region to stand as a block a solid block they're actually dividing it into different countries they are this integrating. regional organization that you see there of conflict within between the g.c.c. member states the blockade against qatar but there is also all conflict within the arabian peninsula there's a war in yemen there is issues with syria there are iraq and libya and so on and so you can't have one group standing against your own if you want to push back in. and this and this group is this united and this is this fragment it a final thought to you you touch briefly on it what about the war in yemen i mean
3:02 am
clearly the military option has failed so how do you see a peaceful resolution for this crisis working and what role does mediation need to play there. there is no military solution to the warning him and i think this is an accepted truth that everybody believes and that i think also all time has thought of us that there is there is no winner in this in this war the suffering of the yemeni people with the suction that the woman has been exposed to all is beyond imagination the only way that through this conflict can be a result is the mediation and the only way that it can be done also is through all orderly functions to sit together across the table and negotiate a man has offered for this and is always open the door for. the whole fees are coming to oman and other parties also are coming to him and to talk the international community has or asked and called for. a settlement of this war for
3:03 am
all negotiation there are certain. factions or there are certain parties that are involved in this war there daunte want to negotiate and those see that there is a military and they still believe there is a military solution which is unfortunately another flawed set up to g. in of them in the region i think time has come that people have to realize that in all wars we've had enough wars and they're usually and the region needs more corporation more coordination more inclusiveness and human has to be brought back to the fault of the out of the region and and only be even with u.c.c. and i think our mind can offer to help in this regard as well as other countries in the region really interesting talking to you thank you very much indeed for talking to al-jazeera. now for the 1st time in israel's history parliament has voted to dissolve itself and called a new election just 7 weeks after the last one in yemen netanyahu won
3:04 am
a highly contested race last month but he could not form a coalition government for a midnight deadline on wednesday meanwhile senior white house adviser jared cohen is in israel and has met netanyahu he's trying to drum up support for donald trump's highly anticipated middle east peace plan will have a force that has more from western. well the day after those incredibly dramatic events at the israeli parliament the knesset the recriminations of flying in israel is preparing itself reluctantly i think for another round of elections none precedented series of events 2 elections within the space of the same year avigdor lieberman continues that the former defense minister who refused to join the government unless his demands were met he continues to blame the good party of benjamin netanyahu for ceding too much policy ground to the ultra-orthodox parties his is a secularist party and it is worried about israel it says becoming a religious state instead of
3:05 am
a secular jewish state benjamin netanyahu after those events in the knesset came out and blamed lieberman in the most personal terms you can imagine saying that he would deliberately misled his own voters and acted to bring down a right wing government and now this man who has throughout his career been one of the furthest right members of mainstream israeli politics he's benjamin using him of being a leftist in disguise so netanyahu will go into these elections still in a relatively strong position there is a good chance that he could win the power again but what it does do is it really hampers his efforts to try to secure some kind of immunity legislatively from the impending indictments the pending hearings over 3 separate corruption cases efforts as well to try to ensure that the supreme court could overturn any such immunity all of that is under threat because of this delay and as well as that there are
3:06 am

welcome back up to come out of our top stories here on the news hour in the next few hours leaders on the gulf cooperation council the g.c.c. and arab league will gather in saudi arabia for a series of high level meetings comes amid soaring tensions between iran and the united states and its gulf allies israel will hold a 2nd election this year after prime minister benjamin netanyahu failed to form a coalition government netanyahu is insisting that the political situation will not
3:24 am
interfere with a u.s. peace plan palestine and israel. and iran's foreign minister mohammed job and zarif has criticized the yet to be unveiled u.s. plan calling it shameful senior white house advisor john would push this plan is likely to be on the agenda at 3 summits in saudi arabia let's bring back my own bashar is al-jazeera a senior political analyst who joins us now live from london let's talk 1st about qatar's involvement in the saudi conferences how significant is it that the qatari prime minister has been invited and what role is cats are likely to play in these meetings. of course it remains to be seen that's the short answer because we don't know exactly what would happen on the sidelines of the summits now in terms of the 3 summits probably qatar is more important within the g.c.c. a smaller. summit where there are real problems began when saudi arabia and the united arab emirates manufactured
3:25 am
a crisis again scotter. in the most despicable of ways really step back stabbing and so on so forth and 2 years later clearly. they realized interested they concluded that they've been banging their heads on the against the wall and that got to continue to prosper and hence now they're basically eating you know their words and trying to mend fences with god then invest a case where it's a good thing and if they would start by lifting the blockade the area blockade at least that's even a better thing and if that's a good step positive step on the longer road the worst local solution within the gulf that's even better and marwan in terms of the broader just takes him in the blockade on cats are has thrown the gulf arab states into complete disarray as you said and these meetings in saudi arabia are meant to find some kind of consensus on iran so how do you see this playing out in terms of unity and consensus.
3:26 am
there is no consensus within the gulf region there is no consensus within the out of world or of a muslim world and certainly there isn't a consensus. to stand behind saudi arabia's escalation against iran there could be some eye consensus for the escalation and for a dialogue start whereby tensions would be. you know controlled or contained if you will and where other issues other hot issues like the war in yemen and syria and libya would also be contain all of these crises saudi arabia has been playing busy an active role over the last 3 years with the reckless policies of the inexperienced crown prince mohammed and so none we've seen saudi arabia lose the leverage we've seen so did it become hostage to the trump administration being blackmailed with hundreds of billions of dollars even running
3:27 am
down its treasury and now saudi saudi arabia needs some of its former allies and partners got out of course is one of them but qatar is not going to join i would think any. reckless new policy towards iran or yemen or anyone else mo and a final quick thought from you on the recent developments in israel benjamin netanyahu is failed as we know to form this coalition government in a fresh election now is going to be held in september but how much does this complicate jabbered cushion his plans for this deal of the century that said cold peace in our time i mean the palestinians said look we're not going to attend and netanyahu is political survival is now at stake. absolutely you know looked at some of the contributions if you will by some of the ultra zionists in washington who led previous initiatives of previous peace process like initiatives
3:28 am
and their advice to trump son in law is either to shred his deed of the century or to shelve it at least until it's clear that his father no a trump becomes a president for a 2nd term for in the meanwhile we're not going to see an israeli government until sometime what in october that by then the real campaign for presidential elections starts in the united states so i think there will be no chance really for this initiative whatever it is to fit to take off now the real disaster daryn is that in the end of june cushion or and company are asking the arabs and europeans and you know whatever the rich party is in order to contribute to a political solution then that there are no what it is i mean either they think rich people rich countries are stupid or if they're basically blackmailing them you know considering that america has leverage in europe and in the gulf and other
3:29 am
places and hence putting pressure on them getting commitments with of money and then imposing their conditions on the palestinians it's a dirty game clearly it's unraveling the jordanians the palestinians and so many others the turks that set their sights or don't want to see it or admonish are al jazeera c.n.n. political analyst not one thank you. now the body of the former opposition leader of the democratic republic of congo etienne tshisekedi has just arrived in kinshasa these are live pictures coming to us here at al-jazeera from the airport in kinshasa and chickadees body arriving back in his home country we can see the casket draped in the flag just left the plane the pool bearers on either side of the casket about to move off he died 2 years ago in belgium at the age of 84 after a long illness a political crisis in the d r c led to the delay of his funeral because of fears it
3:30 am
would spark opposition protests there and crowds are expected to gather at the national stadium in kinshasa a bit later but these are just live pictures here coming to us from the airport in kinshasa as the body of 83 year old a former opposition figure etienne tshisekedi arrives back home. now instead one person was killed when rapid support forces opened fire on an area where protesters have gathered in the capital khartoum it comes as his groups declare their 2 day strike a success protest groups are now threatening more civil disobedience to try to force the military council to hand power to a civilian government here morgan has more now from the capital khartoum. on thursday afternoon gunfire erupted outside the paramilitaries of the sit in front of the army headquarters here in sudan's capital had a tomb one person was killed and several others were injured and protesters say they don't know how it started but it reminds them very much of what happened on wednesday and even more of what happened just 2 weeks ago when
3:31 am
a faction of the military known as the rapid support forces tried to move some barricades in the protesters refused to allow them to do that they opened fire killing at least 6 protesters and injuring dozens more know there's thing that they are concerned that with the military is trying to do is trying to provoke them to get into the city and try to disperse them the protesters have been capping there for 7 weeks now demanding that the military council which ousted former president ahmed bashir from power on the 11th of april to hand over power to 3000000000 rule but talks between the military council and the opposition coalition have been stopped from more than a week because the 2 sides could not agree on the corporate composition of the sovereign council which effectively will be the presidential council so with talks falling protesters are saying that despite the threats despite the continuous eruption of gunfire battle between protesters and the rapid support forces and the military factions they will continue with their system and till they hear that a civilian independent transitional government is in place. thousands of activists
3:32 am
are gathering in cities around brazil against education reforms since the election of president jebel so narrow the country has seen a raft of cuts and freezes to the education budget the government says there are necessary measures to tackle an ongoing financial crisis well done sharma joins us live now from daniel so why is this issue set up such strong emotions on the streets. well it really has i mean we're seeing the beginnings of the demonstration here in sao paolo many people still to arrive but there have been demonstrations which already started in other cities around brazil over a 1000000 people turned up on the 15th of may when these cuts were 1st announced so this is a really big issue but many people here see these as not just cuts to the education budget although they are pretty fundamental some 30 percent of the budget cuts across public education affecting universities university hospitals grants and much much more many of these people see this as an attack on their very way of thinking
3:33 am
on the kind of soul of the of the country in many ways they say that those who are going to be affected will be disproportionately from the poorer communities from the bluff black brazilians among women any of those who are trying to encourage politico critical thinking that critical thinking they feel is mostly directed against the government job oh so naro has accused many teachers in the public education institutes of indoctrinating their pupils and has asked the peoples to record and then report them so it's become an ideological battle as much as a financial battle and so many of these people here are seeing it very much as a battle for their future of freedom their freedom of thinking their freedom of political movements so they say it is a battle for the future so it's a fight that's likely continue to continue beyond these ever growing protests and daniel i mean just 5 months into his presidency is german both so narrow minded to be worried about the strength of the.
