destroyed in that fire, flames are still burning although the la fire department believes they have a pretty good hold on that fire but the fire departments across southern california are on very high alert and will remain so for the next 24 to 36 hours because of the santa ana winds which have been so destructive. the california forest redivision ranking those winds perk up the highest level of warning. it has never been set at purple before. today it is. the highest level of wind warning we have ever had in southern california. these are going to be very dangerous 24 hours. >> looking at images of you standing with flames and smoke behind you what does it feel like you want to smell like where you are right now? >> reporter: over the past

couple days we have all been doing our best not to inhale too much, wearing masks when we can. you feel it, you can see the dust in the air, smell the smoke, it is acrid, it is quite awful to be in the middle of. that is why the fire departments have been keen to get everybody out of these areas, so many schools have been closed in this area and will remain closed because the air quality is too dangerous for children and others. it is a pretty bad scene here and it is only going to get worse for the next 24 hours. heather: thank you for bringing us the report be careful out there. those firefighters, the parents accused of tampa serial killer of the tampa serial killer could face jail time as parents. they say they won't testify

heather: us designated terror group hamas now calling for three days of rage in response the president's declaration of jerusalem as his relapse capital city. as protesters take to the streets to burn flags it is a monumental moment for our allies in israel but could this push the world further apart from the peace agreement in that region. here to react is managing director of the israel project, thank you for joining us. the fires, the protesting,
1:17 am
burning the american flag, it is already begun. >> we don't know how bad it will get. the administration knew something like this was going to happen, they decided the cost of not doing it was outweighed by the cost of doing it. they wanted to make sure the president lived up to his campaign promise to recognize jerusalem as the capital. >> moving the us embassy to jerusalem as well. >> he began the process of building it, this will take years and the administration has been forthright -- heather: is that a compromise? what i understand from reports i read, there's a place they could have opened it almost immediately. >> we have a couple places in jerusalem, they are all candidates but with the president wants to make sure the administration wants to make sure is the process is followed, there is security when it finally opens. the state department has strict guidelines on these things and it takes years.
1:18 am
>> benjamin and yahoo used the words courageous and just in terms of what donald trump announced yesterday. >> the president faced international opposition, domestic opposition but he looked at this and said jerusalem is his relapse capital. this is where the israelis run the government out of in addition to the fact that american law. >> a congressional mandate going back 25 years in 1995 congress enacted this jerusalem embassy act. >> congress it in as many words it is the policy that jerusalem is his relapse capital, we should move the embassy there. this is been congress's view all the way through summer of this year. in june 2017 there was a senate resolution the past 90-0 calling on the president recognize jerusalem as his relapse capital which is why it is absurd the democrats are coming down against him. >> wire democrats against it? because it is donald trump?
1:19 am
>> this is one of the things people are talking about. it is difficult to figure out why democrats like diane feinstein who a few months ago said the embassy should be moved and his relapse capital should be recognized is now coming against it saying it is a bad idea. >> in terms of the un and former president obama he didn't do his real any favors. >> almost exactly a year ago looking at a situation in which the obama administration is working with some countries, working with other countries to actually deny is relapse right to their historic capital in jerusalem and one of the most important parts of what donald trump did yesterday is he said effectively that is that you and policy, you and policy is what it has been, jerusalem is his relapse capital. of the 20 three days of rage hamas is calling for so we will he see what happens, hopefully that will not occur.

1:25 am
strength, unity and ringing the country together. these things are the rhetoric they continue to perpetuate to divide america. >> let's look at what the naacp president derek johnson had to say, an affront to civil right saying donald trump's statements and policies regarding the protection and enforcement of civil rights have been abysmal and his attendance is an affront to the veterans of the civil rights movement, he has created a commission to reinforce voter suppression, refused announce white supremacists and has created a racially hostile climate in this nation. how do we come together if you are not willing to even talk or have the president there? >> i don't think they want to come together, they want to continue the divisiveness, the impeachment nonsense that went on yesterday, this is about
1:26 am
creating the divisive rhetoric, time to bring the country together. they can say donald trump, 20 things are attendings on a checklist but still not be happy, this has nothing to do with bringing things together, the naacp, have been around a long time and done some good things. it is a lot of rhetoric that continues to perpetuate the system this is why we continue to have this drama and nonsense in america today, really sad because we are showing other young people across america's this is what the agenda is when it is not. the fact that donald trump is going, is showing the fight against racism, going -- because he does care and does one to show unity and strength. this is why he attended the event, they should be happy he is coming to the civil rights
1:27 am
museum. >> is it reverse racism? is that going on? >> a big impact -- i venture to say yes because we talk about how we want donald trump -- they want him to be more involved in minority issues and listen to minority years, he is doing is that. when you say we don't want you to come, you say you want him to be a part of it but you don't want him to be part of it so you are absolutely right. i would say it is reverse racism. he is making an attempt to be more culturally -- he will probably go there and learn something from it and we should want that. >> all the things the naacp president said, if he believes those to be true have the conversation, a great way to have it in person, not a lot of people get to do that. >> they refuse meetings, refused to have panel discussions, this

if they are trying to take out the british prime minister that is an amazingly powerful message. we need to be very vigilant. what is scary is there are tens of thousands of people on the british terror watch lists and those are the least competent terrorists by managing to get themselves flagged before they have done anything so they will have a difficulty sorting through that determining which are the real threats and being able to take action, which they did in this case before a terrorist incident occurs. >> they were 20, 21 years old from london and birmingham. the pentagon also announced top leaders from al qaeda and the taliban had been killed by us forces. what do you know about that? >> we are costly trying to take out al qaeda and taliban members, best place to kill them is overseas but it is important to note the supreme court just
