deadlock 2.0 israel's 2nd election is on course for yet another stalemate neither prime minister netanyahu or his centrist rival achieve a majority signaling. talks. to assemble a strong government i intend to speak with everyone tonight who worked to form a government. facilities. the new york times faces a publishing an excerpt from a forthcoming. important
9:01 am
. to the world this is r.t. international my names you know neal pleasure to have your company. with more than 60 percent of the vote counted the fate of israel's prime minister in the balance this afternoon polls suggest he's neck and neck with his nearest rival after the repeats parliamentary election binyamin netanyahu even with included currently does not have enough seats to secure a majority government also calls for his main challenger benny gantz. this vote was largely viewed not as a general election but as a vote of confidence for netanyahu and mind that not for his party but for him
9:02 am
personally and that is important because the whole reason why these elections happened is because netanyahu couldn't form a government after the elections in april so he called for another elections and during the containing some of his policies the policies that he personally proposed they managed to a alienate some of his former allies and be gave a boost to his rivals also at the same time this adds up to the corruption charges he could still be indicted on 3 in 3 cases for so what if the campaign what did he promise the public didn't seem to go down so well he drove a very hard bargain when it comes to the right wing agenda being very pro jewish kind of anti arab i should say because he talked about an exciting settlements in the west bank and in the jordan valley he times and times again raised questions about the loyalty of the arab community and effectively he ruled out any possibility of forming a coalition with
9:03 am
a force that will put forward the interests of an arab minority. 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 zionist passes so as to the early days was still an exit polls but how is it looking that the arab minority voters voted it's very indicative case of how benjamin netanyahu is rhetoric blew in his face more arabs showed up at the polls and cause and effect here and more seats for the pro arab party they are in fact are coming in 3rd in the race right now too soon yet still to talk about coalition building but i bet it's always going on behind the scenes benny gantz is the key rival of benjamin netanyahu and he. he has a sort of a personal problem with the incumbent prime minister but he has already said that he's ready to form a coalition with any political force the likud party included i intend to speak
9:04 am
with everyone starting tonight we will work to form a broad unity government that will express the will of our people. i would like to focus on a man who could be the king maker of liberal man and ally turned rival and all of that because of benjamin netanyahu who's very favorable views and very favorable policies towards the ultra orthodox parties to have ultra orthodox jews exempt from military service and as for what is going to happen next the president of israel and admittedly a man a person we don't talk much we don't hear much about he is going to choose he's going to choose a man most worthy of forming a coalition and in his opinion and we'll see where it goes from there or we got some reaction on today's developments from political analyst mitchell a pariah who believes for no mr does not have any viable options for
9:05 am
a coalition. the ironic thing is the last election which was a few months ago and it's in 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 has said will join a national unity government with the likud even we just won't do it with nixon you know and you know for most israeli politicians and many and many of the israeli people is damaged goods. whole with another big story of the day saudi arabia is
9:06 am
said to invite you in experts to join an investigation into its major oil facilities on sunday while the waits to apportion blame the u.s. president was already quick off the mark to accuse around oil refining in saudi arabia that's a result of the attack on 2 major state run facilities the u.s. claims it was a result of drone strikes launched from southern iran doubts despite rebel stating they did it strongly denying any involvement in washington'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 dry and decode these recent statements from the president. and. looking that way will have some pretty good. having some very strong studies done but it's
9:07 am
certainly looking that way. this moment and. 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 they 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'm 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
9:08 am
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 you 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 on the bus over these things happened right remember back in february want to humanitarian aid truck was burned on the border with venezuela mike pence the us
9:09 am
vice president spoke up immediately saying who was to blame the tyrants in caracas dance this is henchmen murdered civilians and burned 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. responsible for creating the conditions of violence his thugs denied the entry of tons of food and medicine while thousands of courageous volunteers saw it to safeguard and deliver aid to venezuelan families. remember saddam hussein and his weapons of mass destruction or should i say lack thereof well they went ahead and bombed iraq anyway but they put on a show at the un in the hopes of convincing the audience 1st declaring 8500 liters of anthrax unscom estimates of saddam hussein would have produced 25000
9:10 am
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. artsy new york. living on a new tell all book about allegations of alleged sexual harassment by u.s. supreme court justice brett has been previewed in the new york times but the paper's facing about for a partly taking things out of context and you've been reading between the lines. 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 is to do york times involved
9:11 am
i think. yeah which is once again one of the biggest stories in the land of trump and cold 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 her prompting her to swatted away and inadvertently touch it. a classmate manx steer 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
9:12 am
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 kavanaugh confirmation is not exoneration and these news revelations that disturb him like the man who appointed him kevin are 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
9:13 am
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 alledged 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 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 essential piece of the puzzle was missing and your draft of the article didn't include those
9:14 am
words that have since been added to the article into it so somewhere in the editing process those words were no 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 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. watch this space my friends. on the way conflict consequences in kashmir they get the latest renewed tension in the
9:15 am
disputed territory and how it goes to the controversial partition 17 years ago. the world is driven by a dream shaped by. the day or thinks. we are to ask.
9:16 am
when lawmakers manufacture consent to public wealth. when the ruling classes protect themselves. with the crime. listen we don't want. to ignore middle of the room. hello again india same as pakistan controlled kashmir should be considered part of its own territory the indian foreign minister also expressed hope that one day they would have physical jurisdiction over the region pakistan and india up enough loggerheads over kashmir for more than 70 years since they failed to agree on the
9:17 am
borders drawn up during the british partition 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 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 matt maganda 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
9:18 am
needed to be sorted more quickly in just 5 weeks to be precise and to 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 studied the maps obviously it's all in there the demographics the religious majority it's also simple isn't it but 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
9:19 am
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 lets on presidents of 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'd 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. just a little bit more all know this today in india controlled kashmir a communications blackout is being enforced making it a struggle for people on either side of the disputed region to speak to each other
9:20 am
india say it's needed to curb potential violence and prevent the possibility of separatist release polis leaders just across the frontier in pakistan controlled kashmir to find out more. 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 for more than a month people living in villages here have really been living in fear dread 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 here either the situation is worse than before and everyone is worried about the well being of family members of the indian occupied kashmir signals are blocked or no
9:21 am
means of communication still 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 a hold of our relatives in india held kashmir but we keep trying to restore to a 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. we were dying to know their condition were concerned something isn't right we have no idea of they have food to your pantry or are going hungry you there kinda. 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.
9:22 am
you look very happy. you left him very bossy on the job when avril we meet with them we feel so happy and delighted with her get every summer on hard she we are facing life and they see the same things to me meeting them itself is a big occasion. all kushner is 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 minister of kashmir that sits only muslim majority state of its autonomy in august pakistan rejected the move saying it contradicts international law when choose the india's leader in a rendering modi a nun's thought the kashmir region would get a development boost including foreign investments he says the region is to be made prosperous in the o.c.a. sions are already under way you know india's top court ordered the federal government to restore normal life in kashmir as soon as possible but we have some number of reasons unless weather steps are being made or notes towards returning
9:23 am
the area to some normality. exceptional situation requires exceptional measures and . implementers and sure the government will be involved. you know when he started off by name is on. lot of things here we relaxed but examples was pretty unsettled and most of the but i think it's opened and the marilyn connections of us all but of course some restrictions there where. those instructions would also be removed so those who are gay will be released in the hoodie dupers are paying very little except those who house some. on charges against them and the case is going against them in the us or it's clearly the some of the confusion and the restrictions on the communications restrictions especially . telephone and on internet are working because
9:24 am
a lot of the cross more terrorist attacks have happened through coordination. these means and also through all. the other such things which are not there are you know which are encrypted and not easy to crowd funding to that insurgencies so i think some of the restrictions will remain but 90 more than 90 percent of kashmir valley which is a muslim majority part of german kashmir are already did time. dictions have been lifted and landline telephones are actually working and i got my own friends there who have been unable to communicate with me to landlines so it's not that they're completely isolated or there's a daughter blackout but gradually i think as the security situation improves i think most of these little believed it now turkey has been at the forefront of global headlines a lot these past number of months so it's perhaps not a bad time for a former turkish ambassador to the u.k. to appear on going on the ground a lot to discuss it all starts in moments. but
9:25 am
if she warned you do. you should at the balls more than those jeans new speech that she me we need to be true. in the news i mean that is without infringing balls. a lot of you will see sawing your info as if parts about 2 kids each other both hard. as in the middle east as if. the. cat 5 days doing it. in english they do you think people
9:26 am
who simply. want to include in total. thousands of american men and women choose to serve in the country's military and. every thing came to a complete. the day that i was raped. you told to show up there to kill me and i see how it destroyed my life any screamed at me and he made me come in and you graham my arm and he write me with this bird think if you take into account that women don't report because of the extreme retaliation it's probably somewhere near about half a 1000000 women have now been sexually assaulted in the us military is a very very traumatizing have happened but i've never seen trauma like i've seen women who are veterans who have suffered military sexual trauma reporting rape is more likely to get the victim punished them the offender and almost 10 year career
9:27 am
or chose very invested in and i give the sex offender who was not even put to justice or put on the registry this is simply an hour in violence male sexual. auditors for the large part of target whoever is there to pray whether that's a man or 1. 100 times are we going underground after the presidents of russia iran and turkey agreed to ally in the fight against the islamists of syria just as the u.k. and usa appear to signal threats to iran which would defacto benefit those
9:28 am
islamists coming up on the show the deputy chair of the founding body of modern turkey you announce have a cause tells going on the ground that boris johnson did not play the turkey very cleverly when syrian refugees fled their homes to escape death and destruction and as you came media breathlessly promotes former pm david cameron's memoir as we get one of his former ministers to explain the libya and bricks of excuses as well as what is happening it is bodies annual conference now with added blairite labor and its territory defectors plus the chair of britain's international trade committee and just mcneil into parliament shutdown the end of boris johnson and the end of the united kingdom all those or more coming up in today's going on the ground the 1st straight to the threat of a u.k. u.s. war in iran joining me now from istanbul is the deputy chair of the founding party of modern turkey and else have a cause was there to the u.k. when going to minister david cameron came to power thanks so much for coming on would also before i even get to the meeting of 3 presidents in the capital
9:29 am
monday just what did you make of trump saying he is locked and loaded after all in june he said he called all for an attack on iran then it's. of course iran borders turkey to its east well i think it's a very complicated situation 1st of all nobody knows who has attacked actually so the keyword here is prudence and beauty i think the saudis are also very cautious saw the americans nobody can blame directly iran but they were the suspects that the attack has been perhaps organized and conducted by iran iran on the other side says that this is a kind of creation of a perception against iran and i think all these are happening just before the u.n. general assembly where we could perhaps see a couple of bilateral meetings and now i understand that president rouhani has made it clear that there won't be a meeting between me and the saudis have asked for an international commission to
9:30 am
mourn it all of the places where the attack has taken place so i think the let us wait and see you see unsourced leaks are already appearing in western the mainstream media that it definitely was iran and not the hutus of yemen. to the around crew facility in saudi arabia i mean what do you think about the timing of it do you think it seems plausible that iran ahead of next tuesday's general assembly in new york would do this while the round is probably still waiting from the united states to return to the g c p a way and since they have not received any kind of sign that the states is going to accept. this all terms they're probably reluctant in meeting.
