of the scenes in jerusalem on sunday. thank you. mr john downtown giant jerusalem and it looks more like a war zone that's hats and. broken bottles over the places the shops are closed because the situation has become dangerous now this is the stood consecutive night that there has been violence here in jerusalem we're also witnessing a minute in my strength and at the same time we haven't seen this kind of protests lion king kong for years you sent me all witnessing it's place and we're not or you folks it comes. on the palestinian president mahmoud abbas has invested to keep the
election in laymen's israelis was so celebrating will commemorate the only month of ramadan and all of those have contributed to this uptake in violence the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu says that his security forces will be on the streets until such time as practiced minority of what he told youngsters that are provoking the situation are actually done with now they have to and am going to carry forward and backwards that we have seen about compromises that have been taken out of peace into various tbilisi occurred and. so all eyes now on tomorrow which will be jerusalem is a an annual commemoration await young jewish youth most with history with these ratings flags that no doubt won't be a provocation and at the same time we've seen great scenes here that supreme court ringback decision as to the evictions happening not far from here in the arab neighborhood of jura that has been postponed for now because of constant audits the

a long time and it's really is a reaction to be increasing and intensified russian and repression of the students . world press freedom day was marked this week by u.s. authorities who mainly focused on journalists rights in other countries the united states itself has witnessed over more than 400 assaults on journalists over the past year now they are there were also 139 arrests and over 100 cases of reporters equipment being damaged and the 2021 tracker shows more and more incidents every day. of takes a closer look at press freedom in america. if there's one thing entrenched in the d.n.a. of us democracy that would be putting america on the pedestal of righteousness at every given opportunity like here we're seeing every day. the work that journalists
are doing around the world in increasingly difficult and challenging conditions nothing is more fundamental to the good functioning of our democracies they advocate they seek safety they celebrate the u.s. knows how to throw one hell of a party for a truth teller look no further than julian asuncion he's published so many u.s. secrets america's justice department is captivated by the man they just won't take no for an answer if extradited a son it will be celebrating his accomplishments like the guantanamo bay files or the iraq war logs for up to 175 years likely in a maximum security prison the ruling in his case leaves open the possibility for the u.s. government to pursue journalists and publishers around the world if their reports and noise the washington establishment that is santa remains in prison underlies the grievous threats to unfettered journalism that these 2 years legislation poses
and of course there's no bigger custodian of journalist safety than the modern day america it is incumbent on all of us to counter these threats to a free and independent media including physical risk and arbitrary detention for one saudi journalist physical risk and arbitrary detention escalated into horrible suffering and death in a matter of minutes jamal khashoggi fell out of favor with the saudi royal family and in 2018 was killed inside their consulate in istanbul reports suggest he was tortured before meeting his death beheaded and dismembered. as his killers go to way on private jets the u.s. could not stand idle in the face of such an atrocity that's one reason we announced in response to the brutal murder of jamal khashoggi the bam to help deter
threatening behavior against the media i beg your pardon all this. is it is a visa restriction policy that doesn't even target the saudi crown prince despite the cia itself saying he personally ordered the hit we held accountable all the people in that organization but not the crown prince because we have never that i'm aware of when we have an alliance with a country gone to the acting head of state and punished that person and ostracized him and a cherry on top of this towering pile of hypocrisy is this promise of joe biden to show he was in fact murdered and dismembered and i believe in the order of the crown prince and i would make it very clear we were not going to interact more weapons to them we were going to in fact make them pay the price and make them in fact the pariah that they are the ban is cosmetic. we know or to murder
and then the person who did order their murders not going to be elder charitable he remains untouched because washington doesn't want to disrupt that relationship as politicians love to float amid the smoke of virtue and mirrors of morality but then things come into sharp focus and we see just how little integrity there is a left for more footage of moscow's victory day celebrations make sure to check out our website r.t. dot com i'll be back with more in just about half an hour so stay tuned.
no dares thinks. we dare to ask. remembering more on this edition of the program we explain why russians have a new version to war contrary to what is said in the west and at the recent g 7 foreign ministers meeting russia was declared reckless and expressed it was really reckless and the rest. was a pandemic no certainly no borders and just a lot to nationalities. as a march to build up with the we don't look like seeing the whole world needs to be . judged as coming close to sleep
a matter of time senior watching going underground the team and i will be back for a brand new season with a brand new look on international nurses day wednesday the 12th of may but until then we'll be showing some of your favorite shows from this season stay safe and we'll see you then. in a moment i'll speak to the former president of the islamic republic of iran this in a week when the u.s.s. nimitz aircraft carrier has been reportedly sent to iran's maritime borders and donald trump secretary of state at least for a few days my comp aoe the former cia director has made it the national press club in washington d.c. what has been seen as seemingly outrageous claims about iran being now allied to al qaida well joining me from tehran the iranian capital now is the former president of iran dr month rude and in general thanks so much for coming on i'm going to ask you right off the top. because i haven't spoken to you sense what did you make of
the assassination of a professor most in their factories out there not far from where you are right now where you're talking to me from. in the name of god the compassionate and the merciful oh god may you hasten the advent of your vice joint and bestow upon him health and triumph. and let us be among the best of his supporters and advocates. and those who spare no effort before his advocate or it or let me 1st say hello to you and all those who watch this program and. and hope it will be helpful for all. terror primarily indicates the weakness and contempt ability of its perpetrators it is condemned in any form by anyone and for any purpose. the goal of the recent terror was to weaken the iranian nation and to halt its growth and development i understand he was working on the coronavirus
research is assassination followed the killing of gen cousin sulaimani and now the last days of the trumpet ministration they're talking about al-qaeda people in iran the need to attack iran what retaliation will ever will and will air on the enemy's expect from any attack on iraq. the culture of the iranian nation has never throughout history the been after conflict. war or threatening others. and it will not be. for the. basically the error of you.
