3 of the more people. interested always in the waters of our. friendship. they tend to moscow in the headlines from this morning neck and neck exit polls are just israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu and his main rival but he gets of both failed to secure a majority government on the road right with the potential length the coalition. in the coming days will convene negotiations to assemble a strong zionist government i intend street everyone starting tonight we will work to form a good you'd see your. post 1st saudi arabia us the un now to help investigate those drone attacks and it's all facilities at the weekend while the us has no doubts and continues to point the finger of blame at iran. and stood up the pole in disputed kashmir cuts all for friends and families with lines of communication remain shut by india to speak to locals there to find out
a bit more. since last month we've been unable to get a hold of. kashmir but we keep trying to totally to say. we'd like you. know and here with you this wednesday morning the 30 minute world is round of smart international 1st that the fate of israel's prime minister hangs in the balance this morning with exit polls just in his neck and neck with his nearest rival to repeat parliamentary elections but even with his religious and right wing allies doesn't seem to have enough seats to secure a majority government and that also goes for his main rival goes down a spoonful in this. was actually coming in but. as either would have liked is it absolutely and i actually wonder how well mr netanyahu slips now. because this
whole general election has largely been viewed as a vote of confidence on benjamin netanyahu the elections were called by himself in the 1st place after he failed to secure a majority in the parliament back in april and so far things things are looking quite bleak for him and benjamin netanyahu he has been running a hard bargain these elections he has been running on a very pro israeli very right wing agenda he promised to annex west bank some west bank settlements and so on and so forth well hear it from the man. in the coming days will convene negotiations to assemble a strong zionist government and to prevent a dangerous and to zionist government. will not and cannot be a government that leans on arab countries are just concious policies that negate the very existence of israel as a jewish and democratic state parties that exalt and praise bloodthirsty terrorists
who murder soldiers citizens and children. so again promising to an extent settlements in the west bank and in the jordan valley questioning the loyalty of the arab population so all of that not only has driven more arab more israeli arab population to the polls but also it has seen some people being alienated by this politics and for benjamin netanyahu. turning his rivals for instance let's talk about the faces here right because to get the give you an idea as to who's in the race as well his main rival is benny gantz from blue and white party and he has already said that he is not if he gets a majority and again it doesn't look like it doesn't look he's not going to get a majority according to the exit polls that he's not going to do business with netanyahu he's not forming a coalition as long as the likud party is led by. netanyahu so and so
far polls are projecting that benny gantz is going to get like about 35 seats while netanyahu could get as many as 30 so here's what benny gantz has been saying during the elections. if you had according to the projected results netanyahu did not succeed in his mission. and that he will we on the other hand prove that the idea of the blue and white project which we established just over 6 months ago is a huge success and he's here to state my intent to speak with everyone starting tonight we will work to form a broad unity government that will express the will of our view. and again remember averred netanyahu is not out of the woods when it comes to the corruption case he still could be indicted in 3 corruption cases of corruption so this is something looming over the incumbent prime minister as well we're hearing already of a muted response to. this was
a referendum on his 10 years in office wasn't it apparently we're not going to know if this is so close to call at the moment it could take weeks the horse trading to try and work out what coalition is going to come in next it isn't going to be clear cut by the end of the day i visit indeed and i wanted to talk a little bit more about the dark horse of the race it was me you can bet is the former ally of benjamin netanyahu liberman he could turn out to be the king maker of this whole election because right now as the likud party in the blue and white party tide the 3rd place takes up the arab party the party representing the interests of the arab. diaspora if i may say so in in israel obviously they're not going to they're not going to ally themselves with the netanyahu sold the 4th man. he also he is alienated by the hardline netanyahu is hardline stance on author the orthodox jews. basically for instance he's been very much against
netanyahu proposal and netanyahu was pushed to grant all orthodox jews a pardon basically to allow them not to serve in the army 1st thing really just as if they if they are all subjects of the orthodox jewish jewish population so he's he's sort of a dark horse and he could be the kingmaker over these whole elections but indeed. the only the only supporters that we've seen cheering after the exit polls war months supported supporters when it comes to the response from netanyahu and from the blue and white party camps it has been moved to do. as you've mentioned to have a listen. but then you know failed for the 2nd time in 3 months you failed to forming a coalition in may failed in getting 61 mandates now we are the largest party and i think it's a good result for israel we are keeping an optimistic mind because last time it was the exact same thing people said that he could have lost then when the real results
came in we saw that we received a few mandates and we actually won the elections so very very cautious response and as he can see even the friendship would be very good hardly friendship with donald trump couldn't help secure a majority and right now basically what's going to happen next to the israeli president a man who we don't hear much about let's be frank here he will appoint a man or a party who he views as most eligible to form a coalition and then indeed it could be weeks of negotiations and who knows maybe netanyahu will have to go not a great 10th year for him in office that if that is the case or it will continue across it. is later update as you know he goes out on thank you. but we as people on the streets in tel aviv whether they want to see mr netanyahu stay or go as prime minister. benjamin the thing you know for sure you have more experience. 20
years from is here. but maybe it's time for someone new i once spent a minute there now through. because the maze good things for the country and here is a good relationship with the. president trump of the us i'm content i'm happy with there is also far. major concern for me was creating another government with religious. flags inside and for now it seems like there won't be right religious coalition so for me that's good news we spoke to 2 a member of palestine's parliament who thinks the voters didn't like that who's use of rhetoric. i think there are more our borders this time than 5 months ago the reason for that is netanyahu and he doesn't see that that is so instigating
for arabs in israel just to go vote because he just said that maybe some of them planned the day of the beach it's nice weather today baby their planned day on the beach and once they hear nothing who's using them as a ticket to promote a more races votes into his account they would decide otherwise and that actually happened with a couple of people that i personally know remember that donald trump has actually promoted netanyahu and that's one of the reasons that he's losing again the donald trump maybe he might be popular in some places within the israeli right wing but. his his calls for nothing you know and the promoting that the neo has instigated some left wing israelis that consider him just as danger to his will as much as nothing you know. other news to pre-fill this morning so. the arabia is to invite un experts to join an investigation into who attacked the country's major
oil facilities last weekend or the gulf war the key wakes to attribute blame nonetheless the u.s. president was already quick off the mark to accuse iran of course or a finding in saudi arabia as an end result of all this has been half after the attack on 2 major state run facilities the u.s. claims it was a result of drone attacks launched from iraqi territory but yemen's who see rebels said they did it and to run a strongly denied any involvement kellam open looks at america's quick fire allegations over. now the trumpet ministration says that it knows for sure who was responsible for the recent attack on saudi arabian oil facilities well kind of try and decode these recent statements from the president you see. looking that way will have some pretty good. having some very strong studies done but it's certainly looking that way at this moment and. we'll let you know soon as we find out definitively we'll let you know but it does look that way and then just half
a minute later you think that iran is responsible i think. i said we think we know who it was but i didn't see anybody just crystal clear no ambiguity there well on saturday u.s. secretary of state mike pompei o said that he was absolutely sure of who did it within hours of the attack we cool on all nations to publicly unequivocally condemn iran's a tux the united states will work with our partners and allies to ensure the energy markets remain most supplied on iran is held accountable for its aggression so on saturday iran absolutely did it a few days later well i will get back to you on that now is it a little bit disturbing that the white house knows the less about the attack as time goes on not more but we've been here before on april 4th 2718 there was a chemical incident in syria the next day the white house was pointing fingers today's chemical attack in syria against innocent people including women and
children is reprehensible and cannot be ignored by the civilized world these heinous actions by the bizarre al assad regime are a consequence of the past administrations weakness and a resolution the syrian skyline was lit up with the fireworks of 59 cruise missiles however a year later james madison was then the u.s. secretary of defense says they really weren't sure who did it. we have other reports from the battlefield from people who claim it's been used we do not have evidence of it so they had a smoking gun evidence at 1st but then they left it in the elevator or they dropped it in the bus over these things happened right remember back in february when a humanitarian aid truck was burned on the border with venezuela mike pence the us vice president spoke up immediately saying who was to blame the tyrants in caracas daunce this is henchmen motets civilians and burn food medicine heading to
venezuelans saturday was tragic for the families of those killed and suffering venezuelans but it was just one more day in venice when his journey from tyranny to freedom madeira must go then a video emerged telling a completely different story and it wasn't so cut and dry. as responsible for creating the conditions of violence his thugs denied the entry of tons of food and medicine while thousands of courageous violence is so to save code and deliver aid to venezuelan families. were members saddam hussein and his weapons of mass destruction or should i say or lack thereof well they want to head and bombed iraq anyway but they put on a show at the un in the hopes of convincing the audience 1st iraq declared 8500 liters of anthrax unscom estimates of saddam hussein that are produced 25000 liters whatever happened to the good old days of evidence investigation and solid proof now the rule seems to be act 1st think later and then justify your
actions afterwards with 144 characters of tough talk on twitter. all right see new york incentive director of the rome paul institute telling mcadams thinks the u.s. is using any means to fire up a conflict that's nothing new. this pattern of lying and of using lies to start wars is nothing is nothing new these people have wanted war with iran for years no matter what happens they find a way to blame. iran for it they were very sure on saturday and then all of a sudden president trump seems to be walking about the america's allies in europe and even in the middle east are saying we're not so sure we'd like to see some some better evidence and the satellite photos they eventually came out with seem to undermine the case today made that the trajectory was from iraq or iran so i think this is just another example of the neo cons pushing for war and that's what happening what's happening with these things you're stovepiping intelligence so you
know normally it's been fully vetted by the the different intelligence agencies in the u.s. so essentially it seems like an act of desperation but the more desperate they get the less credible they are and the less they're believed by the rest of the world. new delhi says pakistan controlled kashmir should be considered as part of india india's foreign minister also expressed hope that one day they would have physical jurisdiction over the region because we dispute comes a long year confrontation between new delhi and islamabad which is rooted in the past and britain's involvement in the region. it used to be one country under british rule with communities of differing religions live side by side for generations but 70 years ago independence or the region split into india and pakistan in a process that went down in history books as the partition and so did the man who hurriedly through the border the year 1947 the dying days of the british empire
weakened by the 2nd world war india became a burden london was also unable to counter the growing independence movement led by mahatma gandhi to fix it britain appointed lord louis mountbatten as the last viceroy of india he made it clear it was not his dream job. i am prepared to accept the job only on one condition india must be granted independence by july 948 and i will not stay there a day longer. once he arrived though he decided he couldn't wait that long it needed to be sorted more quickly in just 5 weeks to be precise enter lord cyril radcliffe a british lawyer who had never set foot in india he was tasked with drawing a line between the most cohesive muslim and hindu populated areas just like mountbatten radcliff 2 found india not to his liking. it was impossible to undertake the field survey in june because of the heat so how does anyone who's not
familiar with the situation on the ground decide where the border is going to be well study the maps obviously it's all in there the demographics the religious majority it's also simple isn't it put the areas where the majority of muslims in pakistan and the hindus in india problem solved right if the aspirations of some people had not been fulfilled the fault must be found in political arrangements with which i'm not concerned the radcliffe line was only revealed to the people the day before independence and scenes of celebration were replaced with fear and confusion as millions woke up on the wrong side of the border the partition and the radcliffe line led to unprecedented violence resulting in up to a 1000000 deaths so how did it all go wrong many areas had equal numbers of muslims and hindus radcliffe also didn't take the sikhs into account and he never even heard of kashmir. i was not even aware of kashmir i heard about it long after i
returned to london both lord mountbatten and lord radclyffe made a swift exit from the heat leaving millions of people to deal with their quick and toxic solution for generations to come. meanwhile in india controlled kashmir a communications blackout continues making it nigh impossible for people on either side of the disputed region to speak to each other paulus lee is there for us. we're in pakistani kashmir not far from the defective border that divides pakistan from india but don't be taken in by the beauty of this himalayan valley for more than a month people living in villages here have really been living in fear dreda and tara on the 5th of august india imposed a blackout it closed the border and since then thousands of families here have no idea what's happening to their families on the other side we're going to visit the family. thank you what is the situation like.
the situation is worse than before and everyone is worried about the well being of family members in the indian occupied kashmir signals are blocked and no means of communications like we're desperate to contact find out how they are and to me contact them it's really like it was before the blackout what happens if you tell me you try to phone your cousin. don't sit up since last month we've been unable to get a hold of our relatives in india held kashmir but we keep trying the air is totally disconnected i've seen for myself this kind of atrocity back in 2010 when i went to kashmir the situation was intense because you have been in post when i was at my aunt's house when people open fire on the building all the windows were broken i mean young boy was killed i saw it all from my so. yeah we're dying to know their condition what we can sense something isn't right we have no idea if they have food
to your pantry on are going hungry to secure access to medicine the situation is killing us and say life has no joy driving us crazy you they can or. i'm. and doesn't do that the whole time. and yes it is like this when i would try to reach down we pray for them constantly our hearts are bleeding we just want to see them again and. they love us and we love them unconditionally they used to come to pakistan and drop the soil in their faces that's how much they want this country were hopeless because it is divisions yes i'm afraid something horrible is happening over there back in 9092 when the situation was worse we used to write letters to each other they were so desperate to end this because the indian army were brutal to those who have relatives in the pakistani side. they told us all this after things had settled
down my uncle said he would be held for a week and i asked just one question do you have relatives in the pakistani gosh i'm actually afraid to tell me all this is you. yes and it's before 5 years. he looks very happy here you love him very matador was there that day whenever we meet with them we feel so happy and delighted with her get every sore on heart she we're facing in life and they see the same things to me hearing them itself is a big occasion even now as you need to get to hospital soon and you can't because of the situation just one of thousands struggling poorest here r.t. kashmir the kashmir dispute been ongoing for the 70 years since india and pakistan failed to agree on the borders drawn up during the british partition of india since then kashmir is been split into 3 parts administered by india pakistan and china
which also has claims to part of the territory tension escalated recently after new delhi stripped india administered kashmir of its autonomy that happened in august and claimed it is indian territory pakistan rejected that move so it contradicts international law our guest explained the current situation in the volatile region . they've already allowed some senior congress leaders to allow them to start visiting kashmir region already and i think in the coming days we're going to see more of a strategic plan to normalize the situation in kashmir. you know obviously there's been. an international pressure to put on india to make this happen i think they were absent and i think that the indian government with its latest actions are committed to resolving this issue of a 30 year old dispute. the government is definitely going to be putting forward measures to make sure that imprison people are processed properly and also. people
in the territory or humanitarian aid gets to them reliably i would argue that it impacts the earnest so well to keep the really these at this point in time because i'm list goes in search of more to be mean these artists will be made because we have a certain angle as you should remember this is not just the mouse there is need but this is also about the. jews and the angle here is that it would be you and i just aren't so this is very complicated and some of these insurance as it were absolutely done to me in this very dubious. reporting for next this morning a new tell all book about allegations of alleged sexual harassment by a u.s. supreme court justice bread governor has been previewed in the new york times but the paper is facing a backlash for apparently taking things out of context with more of this morning. if you're kind of sick of hearing the same story all over again like the president
called this or that media nothing but junk or you're glad you haven't heard the name brand cavanaugh and something related to his genitals for a while i'm really sorry i don't think they'll do it but they should for the good of the nation i call for the resignation of everybody here to do york times involved. yeah which is once again one of the biggest stories in the land of trump and co vs the liberals here we go so 2 times journalists wrote a book and had a preview published in the sunday paper what's being teased are 2 previously reported alleged cases of sexual harassment by brad cavanaugh now a supreme court justice from his years at yale. a freshman named brett kavanaugh pulled down his pants and thrust his penis. swatted away and inadvertently touches. a classmate manx t.
assume mr cavanaugh with these pants down at a different drunken party with friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student now that is gross if it's found mr cavanaugh was really up to all that surely he must face severe consequences although for now these are just lines from a book not something put forward by let's say the folks from the justice department but if you pick almost any one of the democratic presidential candidate lineup they've made up their minds on what should be next for kava no confirmation is not exoneration and these news revelations that disturb him like the man who appointed him cavanaugh should be impeached he was put on due course through a sham process and his plays into court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice he must be impeached. it is more clear than ever that brett kavanaugh lied under oath he should be impeached i stand with survivors and countless other
americans in calling for impeachment proceedings to begin but dig a bit deeper and perhaps trump's latest rant at the n.y.t. isn't so wide off the mark there could have been a bit of a problem with their journalistic ethics you see some conservative folks got an advanced copy of the book and realized something rather important was dropped in the times teaser. the book notes quietly that the woman max steering named as having been supposedly victimized by cavanagh in france denies any memory of enraged event seems i don't know significant it was then the paper's turn to do something about it after a while here's what they came up with an earlier version did not include one element of the book's account regarding an assertion by a young classmate that friends of brett kavanaugh pushed his penis into the hand of a female student at a drunken dorm party the book report of the female student declined to be
interviewed and friends say that she doesn't recall the incident that information has been added to the article the authors were bound to be asked why the central piece of the puzzle was missing and your draft of the article didn't include those words that have since been added to the article. so somewhere in the editing process those words were yeah i mean i think what happened actually was that you know we had her name and you know the times doesn't usually include the name of rectum and so i think in this case the editors felt like maybe it was probably better to remove it and in removing her name they removed the other reference to the fact that she didn't remember it they could have done a good job at protecting the victim or they could have messed up a whole thing up wildly because no matter what's not in the article they say her name is in the book or maybe mr trump was right and they didn't want to read the story of that extra spice and left out the crucial bit on purpose what if the woman
doesn't even consider herself a victim she reportedly says she doesn't remember anything like this oh god. his genitals liberal media. watch this space my friends oh and all of breakfast time to 28 minutes past 8 of the horn and that's it so far from moscow newsroom follow r.t. dot com for all our latest top stories and from the front page there right now tracking those exit polls in israel's 2nd general election in just 5 months results too close to poll here in moscow is kevin the inside thanks for watching this bulletin have a great wednesday. it's .
something. i think the men that we attract to the military you know we've got to the army of one you know be all you can be all those themes that we've had throughout the years very very heavily masculine masculinity cannot be victimized because if you're a leader if you're a masculine person and you're victimized then you're weak the problem is that anybody can be a victim of sexual assault. and join the service in 1972. the military is a great way to life. cannot see the world. i got educated i love the military. was 19 and i want to challenge a loan and the next thing i know i was laying on the ground i was struck from
behind. and you guys will hold me down to one guy who was pulling my pants down. and. you know. he was taking care of his business and you know struggled and i was being struck and hit and told you know told to shut up or they'd kill me. and i see how it destroyed my life. i mean i've been married 3 times this luckily i have a wife right now who i've been married to for 25 years. you start wondering you start sort of you know you're coming up with reasons why things are the way they are and for a long time i kept thinking i don't know this something something else. i had never told anybody over 30 years i decided to tell my wife. it was the scariest moment in my life.
