8:11 am
activists warn their safety cannot be guaranteed if they are deported we're talking about less than forty thousand people immigrants asylum seekers in israel who seek asylum in a land of eight million people this is less than half a percent of israeli population so our first question to the government is why can't israel absorb those people give them shelter or allow them to build their lives here this is so much less than other countries have to deal with many asylum seekers ahead here in a detention center in the desert in the south of israel. this have settled in the southern neighborhoods of tel aviv a poor area of the city while some residents support the migrants many playing them for advise in crime and want them to leave. call these are foreigners infiltrators it is impossible to live like this all our infrastructure collapsed the sewage system education welfare everything all the budget is going to what's

8:14 am
posted its highest growth since two thousand and seven before the global financial crisis the european commission statistics body euro stat says annual g.d.p. growth for the bloc went up two and a half percent that growth was largely driven by france which has a new economic impetus with a manual net caught the reins and spain which expanded by just over three percent. in the value of goods and services produced in the euro zone has been rising steadily. in twenty fifteen eurozone growth rose by one and a half percent. in twenty sixteen the eurozone economy grew by one point seven percent. and last year the economy charged ahead by two and a half percent this momentum was partly because the european central bank in frankfurt has pursued a huge stimulus program slashing its main interest rate to zero and buying billions of euros a month with the financial assets known as quantitative easing the e.c.b.
8:15 am
has gradually been tapering off the stimulus measures which were introduced in the wake of the financial crisis last week e.c.b. president mario draghi into that the strong euro wouldn't affect the block's economic prospects but he said global factors were a wild card that could have a negative effect the european commissioner for economic affairs pierre moscovici said the eurozone would maintain its momentum at least into twenty nineteen but he hinted at worrying issues including a lack of investment persistently high youth unemployment and stubborn public debt . very good will it remain that. he's an economy economists rather at the university. marcus druggy mentioned global factors as a wild card but does it does he mean with that. oh is wild card he probably means the wia guys i mean north korea can be on their own and mr trump you never know
8:16 am
what's going to be happening in his next tweet so global factors could be these or it could be political issues in europe take the german grand coalition discussions which hopelessly hopefully will finish today we have elections in italy to come up so there are a lot of political factors which could in fact. affect the economy and the boom situation in which we are in right now you mention italy that greece spain and italy indeed all growing so is can we say the euro crisis is well and truly over now it's just been covered by the e.c.b. wanted terry policy the negative interest rates so if you took these options to two for structure and change your public debt situation is germany did its good but in italy they haven't done it they state of bliss one hundred thirty five percent g.d.p. to debt ratio and greece obviously has
8:17 am
a lot of problems with its structural reforms so it's not over yet. talk about greece and italy we've been hearing a lot about the some of the banks in the europe especially in southern europe. not hearing much from them anymore as everything's safe now no not at all i mean we heard a lot from italian banks last year i mean want to partially sienna and the toxic credits and essence in its balance sheets so this is still an outcome out of the financial crisis from two thousand and seven and two thousand and eight and it's not been solved in southern europe why has it not been solved it because i mean take take the basel agreements on soarin that caps in the balance sheets not been solved as a structural reforms have not been solved and on the other hand obviously the banks scrutinise and squeeze by new problems take the. the fin tax the bitcoin situation the out coins so the entire digitization issue in banks so business models are not
8:18 am
yet there i mean take deutsche bank's last week's announcement so you don't really see new business models for these banks in particular in southern europe really sleeping on these new trends on on on bitcoin only you mentioned fin tech. i don't know whether sleeping but at least they're very slow they really do take these issues up but they are cannot do it out of a situation of threats i mean take the automotive industry they are facing the same situation which is results and always driving and so forth but they are doing it all over the situation of threats and the banks are not in a strong situation so that's the maid problem and on the other hand they don't have the smartness to change it marcus will from some gone university thank you very much for joining us in the studio thank you that. germany is still waiting for a new government the country's two biggest political parties say they need more
8:19 am
time for coalition talks they had set a deadline for sunday but there was still no breakthrough they'll pick up negotiations again today it's been more than four months since national elections can chancellor angela merkel deliver another grand coalition between her conservatives and the social democrats. this is where the parties hope to clinch a coalition deal after talks at the s.p.d. headquarters on sunday negotiators failed to meet best self-imposed deadline of midnight and instead gave themselves the night off. the army it's got a good minds on this just now in top level talks we decided there are policy issues we still need to talk about where the parties are far apart so we need detailed concentrated negotiations so we've jointly decided that we won't talk into the night instead will return here in the morning to concentrate on continued talks and press on with our deliberations by. the parties did make
8:20 am
progress on some issues they agreed on funding high speed broadband expansion and investing in social housing earlier in the week they also take tough climate education and refugee policy but the sticking points are labor law and health care the conservative block has so far rejected a speedy cause to reform the health insurance system. the s.p.d. wants to push through these cool policies to persuade skeptical party members to support a coalition deal party negotiators will be back here today and perhaps they'll reach a breakthrough. our political correspondent hans front is following this story for us hans will this be wrapped up in the next day or two well they've given themselves extra time of two days at the moment that's their aim at the moment to
8:21 am
finish this by tomorrow or the end of tomorrow i guess it's not entirely certain that that will happen but it seems very likely that they're going to push for that by the end of the week i think at the latest we should have a final paper so is there any chance that these talks could still fail obviously as long as they're not concluded there is always a chance that they can fail but one has to see that both parties have invested a lot in these talks there are almost one hundred people one hundred top politicians from both sides involved in this they've been talking in more than a dozen focus groups on all various issues that the government has to deal with education housing health care those kind of things so they've invested a lot of political capital into those and i think it's very likely that an agreement will be reached we can't forget though at the end of all of this the social democrats still have a nearly half a million party members that have to vote on whatever deal is agreed upon how likely is it that they'll give their approval and that's the really big question everyone no one really knows everyone is waiting on that decision it will take
8:22 am
another three weeks in other words we will have a final paper and then it will be three weeks for this election of the right can follow this decision of the rank and file of the social democrats actually to be concluded so that's three weeks during which the bickering is likely to go on and also within the social democratic party that's going to lead to quite a lot of discussion and probably quite a lot of tension but at the moment i think one has to say the social democrats know that in recent polls they're doing less well than they did during the elections and i would still more badly than they did in the elections i'm not sure that the rank and file is going to risk a new elections i think at the moment i should say it's likely that it will be approved by the. democratic rank and file three weeks is a long time in politics as we know hans now brussels meanwhile is putting pressure on both sides to reach a deal quickly what exactly is hanging in the balance for europe well obviously
8:23 am
there is a german government in place but it is a caretaker government at the moment so the really crucial decisions on further policy and the european union need to wait for a new german government which obviously has a very strong voice and europe issues such as the harmonize ation of asylum laws in europe there's a question about how banks are going to further cooperate in europe well this kind of issues have to weigh money issues that with brics it with the united kingdom leaving the european union there's going to be a lot of money. less money in the european union budgets has to be redistributed in some way the response ability has to be redistributed so there's a big issues and for that a government needs to be in place there is pressure not only within germany but also internationally did have these political correspondent from covering the ongoing coalition talks for us thank you hans. to some sports news now in jubilation in philadelphia after the underdog eagles scored
8:24 am
a thrilling win in sunday's super bowl it is the first time the team has clinched american football's biggest prize the eagles overcame all the odds to claim victory against the favorites and five time champs the patriots quarterback nick foles was the hero throwing three touchdowns and wrecking up three hundred seventy three yards philly did lead for most of the game but the patriots stormed back in the fourth quarter tom brady finding rob gronkowski to take the lead but the eagles a broke through again with under three minutes to play sealing a forty one thirty three victory and we have to be sports correspondent i mean as of standing by for us in philadelphia i mean people still celebrating their. the streets are starting finally starting to clear out a little bit we're staying right here in front of city hall in philadelphia but this scene is still very chaotic i don't know if you can see the lights from emergency vehicles behind me there's still
8:25 am
a lot of people wandering the streets thousands descended thousands of hugo fans descended on the city to watch the game many of them not expecting to win but now they have a reason to celebrate the scene right after the game was obviously more sober so retore but also very confused i think a lot of the fans didn't expect this to happen and there was just a look of shock in many people's eyes i was hugged by a stranger i had champagne in my hair it was really a spectacular moment and it's a remarkable day for philadelphia here what does this mean for eagles fans. oh means everything for eagles fans young eagles fans but also all are eagles fans as you know the eagles have never won a super bowl they want to championship the last one back in one nine hundred sixty and we met an older egos fan who has been waiting since one thousand sixty over fifty years and to see them win another national championship now they have that super bowl title it's it's really means everything to a sports fan there's
8:26 am
a lot of really diehard eagles fans in the city and to see their team come through a season like this and root and just finally clinched the title it's amazing for a lot of the fans here and i mean tell us about the game itself you know the eagles led for most of this game they seemed to really deserve this when oh sure it was a well deserved win now both teams they played really well a lot of a lot of touchdowns there was a lot of yards gained a lot of passes made very few fumbles very few said no sacks. and but the the eagles were leading in the first half and there was only one moment when the. yeah the patriots had a slight lead but if you look at how much of an underdog the eagles were this year not only was this their first super bowl appearance since two thousand and five
8:27 am
they weren't even in the finals in the last three seasons. combined with that you had nick foles who was a backup quarterback playing the super bowl game for them and he really shined this game he was a star he became the first n.f.l. player in the super bowl to receive a touchdown pass and throw a touchdown right might have been the most remarkable moment of the game when he received the pass in the end zone and scored a touchdown for his own team so any new was being one of the best ok all right did i mean sports correspondent i mean essence standing by for us there in a very happy philadelphia thank you i mean very much. you're watching to debby we're back at the top of the hour. good.
