3:00 am
at 10 am for moscow in the headlines this morning neck. exit polls suggesting israel's prime minister better and his main rival benny gantz have both failed to secure a majority government on the road right with potential lengthy coalition talks looming that. in the coming days will convene negotiations to assemble a strong zionist government i intend to speak with everyone starting tonight we will work to form a broad unity government. that longs for you this morning while saudi arabia probes who was behind that devastating set of drone attacks on its own facilities at the weekend the u.s. president. directly accusing iran. of people in disputed kashmir or cut off from friends and families and lines of communication
3:01 am
remain shut down by india he said the corresponding bit of find out what's really going on. since last month we've been unable to get ahold of relatives in kashmir but we keep trying the areas totally disconnected could contact them freely like it was before the blackout. good morning thanks for choosing us this morning those big choice out there this is our international zone critical more 30 minutes of world news for you starting with this then what's going on overnight in israel the fate of israel's prime minister really hanging in the balance this morning with exit polls suggesting he's neck and neck with his nearest rival after repeat parliamentary elections but even with his religious right wing allies doesn't have enough seats to secure a majority government of that also goes for his main rival but he got an unsatisfactory morning for both of them egos down off the cross it. yeah the minute
3:02 am
marking is 10 years leading the country would be hoping to wake up to a better opinion from the country no doubt but it was a complicated picture that what some of us want to bring us up to speed yeah absolutely i'm not sure he even got as much as a good night's sleep at all because this whole election it was widely seen as more of even a vote of confidence or no confidence. however you preferred for benjamin netanyahu in fact the whole reason why these elections happened in the 1st place because benjamin netanyahu called for them after failing to secure a majority and forming a coalition after a vote this april but right now the results are showing that he could be losing more than gaining with these elections because for many the problem is not with his new could party with the party that he leads but rather with him personally with the some of his political views and opinions adding up to that he's still not out of the woods when it comes to corruption allegations and to the corruption scandal
3:03 am
he still could be indicted in 3 cases so what are the campaign and what did he promise well he drove a very hard bargain very right wing very pro jewish campaign he talked about an exciting settlements in the west bank in the jordan valley he questioned repeatedly questioned the loyalty of the arab minority and in fact he ruled out any possibility of forming a coalition with a political force that represents the interest of the arab minority have a listen. in the coming days will convene negotiations to assemble a strong zionist government to prevent a dangerous and to zionist government. will not and cannot be a government that leans on iraq and to sign this passes parties that negate the very existence of israel as a jewish and democratic state how did the arab minority voters react to those comments well it kind of blew in the face because he because now the according to
3:04 am
the exit polls the arab party the party that is driving on the arab agenda on the pro arab agenda this netanyahu is rhetoric drove more arabs to the polls and so this party is now gaining seats so it has gained. about 3 seats and it is coming in 3rd in the general election polling so too close call at the moment too close to talk about was supposed is going on behind the scenes already but officially too close to call of what coalitions may or may not happen what other forces are involved here well the main rival for netanyahu is benny gantz in his blue and white party. very very close and in fact benny gantz he has been saying that he is willing to work with anybody but i mean but netanyahu is figo netanyahu personally he's unhappy with him. and also very according to the projected results netanyahu did not succeed in his mission. and that.
3:05 am
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 stay i intend to speak with everyone starting tonight we will work to form a broad unity government that will express the will of our people. but well interestingly enough the only supporters the only count that we've seen cheering so far was for a party that was coming in 4th and that is the door liberman and. allied turned a rival for netanyahu and he could be the kingmaker in this whole election because . eventually he could have the final say whoever he sides with might have the majority as a coalition but again what's going to happen next the president of israel a man not often not heard about not heard of often he will decide who's worthy after the official results and of course he will decide who is worthy of starting to form a coalition he'll name that person and we'll see how it goes from there all right
3:06 am
we'll keep tracking it with your help because don't know folks for but of course this morning we were in the streets of tel aviv as well to see what people thought there whether they wanted to stay on as prime minister or not in its 10th year. and you know for sure we have more experience. 20 years from it. but maybe it's time for something new i want to meet the nose. because the maze good things for the. any is a good relationship with the. president of the u.s. the. concern was weeding out the government which. really just. inside. just but early this morning i spoke to political analysts michel baraki thinks the you know doesn't have any viable options for a coalition. the ironic thing is the last election which was
3:07 am
a few months ago and it's a now had really all the options in the world he could have formed a right of center government a narrow one with about 61 seats or he could have sat down with benny gantz and had a unity government with 70 and added more parties he chose to do neither he wasn't successful in either called for new elections now what it appears is i would say it's the final countdown to the end of the career of that and you know he's talking about a narrow right of center zionist government you know a narrow government and many gods is sounding like a leader unifying the people the will of the people he's going to talk to all the parties most of the parties that have run from the left blue and white to the labor party to the democratic camp party all of them as i said will join a national unity government with the likud even we just won't do it with it and you know and you know for most israeli politicians and many and many of the israeli people as damaged goods. next this morning saudi arabia has to invite u.n. experts now to join an investigation into who attacked the country's major oil
3:08 am
facilities at the weekend when the gulf want to he wants to attribute blame the u.s. president was already quick to accuse iran of course all refining in saudi arabia as an end result of what happened the weekend has been majorly hit after that attack on 2 major state run facilities the u.s. claims it was a result of drone strikes launched from iraqi territory very quick to say they did it to yemen's who's the rebels to run all the way along the lines strongly denied any involvement here. looks at america's quick fire allegations 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. it's 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
3:09 am
but it does look that way and then just half a minute later you think that iran is responsible but i think i did. say that 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 how to counsel for its aggression so on saturday iran absolutely did it a few days later well 8 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
3:10 am
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 your 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
3:11 am
dunst 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 sought 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 for produce 25000 liters whatever happened to the good old days of evidence investigation and
3:12 am
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. r.t. new york executive director of the wrong paul institute doesn't mcadams thinks the u.s. is using any means to fire up a conflict that's nothing new. this pattern of lying of using lies to start wars is nothing it's 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 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 that 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
3:13 am
happening what's happening with these things you're stovepiping intelligence so you know no it's been fully vetted by 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 are believed by the rest of the world . new delhi says pakistan controlled kashmir should be considered as part of india and india's foreign minister also expressed hope that one day they would have physical jurisdiction over the region new delhi and islamabad of a look ahead for more than 7 decades over kashmir since they failed to agree on the borders drawn up when the british petition of india. it used to be one country under british rule where communities of differing religions live side by side for generations but 70 years ago independence or the region splits into india and pakistan in a process that went down in history books as the partition and so did the man who
3:14 am
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 matt mackenzie 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
3:15 am
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 studied the maps obviously it's all in there the demographics the religious majority it's also simple isn't it the areas with 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 fold must be found in political arrangements with which i'm not concerned the ratcliffe 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 on 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
3:16 am
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 communication blackouts being enforced making it impossible for people on either side of the disputed region to speak to each other fall asleep when therefore. when 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 from what in a month people living in villages here have really been living in fear dread and terror at on the 5th of august india imposed a blackout it closed the border and since then thousands of families here have no
3:17 am
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 here. 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 in all means of communications too like 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 ahold 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 india and how kashmir the situation was intense the curfew had been imposed when i was at my aunt's house when people opened fire on the building all the windows were broken and a young boy was killed i saw it all for myself. we are dying to know their condition were concerned something isn't right we have no idea if they have food to
3:18 am
eat if young children are going hungry for the sake of access to medicine the situation is killing us and say life has no joy it's driving us crazy you be a killer. and does it do that the whole time. and yes it is like this whenever we try to reach down we pray for them constantly our hearts are bleeding we just want to see them again this is you and she is yes and it's before 5 years. yes you look very happy here you left him very magical board was there that whenever we meet with them we feel so happy and delighted with her get every sorrow on hardship we're facing in life and they see the same things in meeting them itself is a big occasion for us 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.
3:19 am
kashmir kashmir has been split into 3 parts of ministers by india pakistan and china 2 which also claims to part of the territory tension escalated recently after new delhi strip to india administered kashmir of its autonomy in august and claimed it as its own pakistan rejected that move saying it contradicts international law then on choose to india's lead in their entry modi announced that the kashmir region would get a development boost including foreign investment he says the region is to be made prosperous and negotiations are underway to that end meantime india's top court ordered the federal government to restore normal life in kashmir as soon as possible i guess explain the current situation in what is a 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
3:20 am
been. an international pressure to put on india to make this happen and they were absolutely i think that the indian government with its latest actions of committed to resolving this issue of 30 year old dispute. that the government is definitely going to be putting forward measures to make sure that imprison people who are processed properly and also. people into territory or humanitarian aid gets to them reliably indeed in certain parts of certain kinds of blocking. for instance on landline telephone has been lifted wide of course in other parts especially on mobile telephone me about and continues to war and i think it's early days for us to really understand what guarding the situation might unfold in me once this blockage is moved remember well we are now going into the winter season
3:21 am
and push me by doing what really the indian government is trying to do is actually go into a window very quickly because with there is going into shmeat there it will be too cold in about to be you know 4 weeks or so and they are trying for the real deal so that the child in a sense if it all begin in 2020 salo. 1021 of the morning moscow time high that coming up this wednesday a tell all book preview on the u.s. supreme court justice brett kavanaugh gets the new york times in hot water so after this break. what politicians do you shop to. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be present. for something i want to be preached.
3:22 am
to the right person is like a real big. i'm interested in the why how. am i should. one else seems wrong. why don't we all just don't call. me world yet to see how this day comes after. and in detroit equals. when somebody find themselves with the party we choose to look for common ground.
3:23 am
again good morning a new tell all book that about allegations of alleged sexual harassment by u.s. supreme court judge. brett kavanaugh has been previewed in the new york times but the paper is facing a backlash over it probably taking things out of context and you put trying because got more detail 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 or to new york times involved . yep which is once again one of the biggest
3:24 am
stories in the land of trump and co versus 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 at. that's a swatted away and inadvertently touch it. classmate manx t. a so mr cavanagh with these pants down at a different drunken dorm party with friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student now that is gross if it fell on 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
3:25 am
they've made up their minds on what should be next for kavanaugh 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 realize something rather important was dropped in the
3:26 am
times teaser. the book notes quietly that the woman max steering named as having been supposedly victimized by kavanagh in france denies any memory of enraged event seems i don't know significant it was then the papers turned 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
3:27 am
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 that 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 frob watch this space my friends. a check of some buildings in brief honduras group with protests against the construction of a luxury residential project demonstrators say they fear construction is going to endanger the long view or national arc of the country's water with a clash with riot police when officers deployed tear gas of the time to break up
