12:15 am
just protested local officials also gave him a cold shoulder when they refused to welcome him to the square another issue overshadowing celebrations this year is the decision by u.s. president donald trump to recognize jerusalem as israel's capital in the month since that decision was made there been numerous protests in the occupied west bank and it's really contributed to a growing sense of hopelessness amongst palestinian christians forty year old george it was sad says he's never witnessed such a song or mood at christmas as a lot of the headline if things remain as is opie pool seek to leave who'd stay here if you see it been so and the city is sad have you. bethlehem like this thousands would usually be here at christmas the muslims would show up even before christians palestinian christians in the west bank are worried their relatively small number will continue to do windell and according to a recent study by the daughter of kenya my university college twenty eight percent of palestinian christians said they'd leave this region if given the chance

a ballistic missile into saudi territory some ten thousand people have died in yemen's civil war. the eastern united states and canada have woken up once again to record low temperatures in the wake of what meteorologists refer to as a cycling temperatures in some parts of fall of as far as minus forty degrees celsius with gusts of more than one hundred ten kilometers per hour dumping hard for me through snow at least eighteen deaths of so far being blamed on the snows domes the national guard has been mobilized to assist with the emergency response. let's take it was speaking to us now from minneapolis the united states is leading meteorologist eric cultists great to see here on the program it's normal at this time of year for winter storms to gather strength very far as that at a pace but what's the difference what exactly is a bum's likely yeah i mean it's
12:22 am
a technical term that meteorologists have been using for a long time it talks about how quickly the storm has strengthened in this case this particular storm strengthened at the fastest rate in modern records and that's going back to the satellite era for any storm to pass near the east coast and winter so it's pretty remarkable from that standpoint. just how quickly the storm strengthened ok and is this just what we're going to have to expect now is this is this the you know as people say is this the new normal. yeah i mean i would hesitate to use that word or that phrase new normal because we don't really know what it's going to stabilize to be quite honest like this is climate change really this is what we're seeing this is what we expect to happen we are seeing warmer ocean temperatures the ocean temperatures right off the east coast were about four degrees celsius warmer than normal and that helped to increase
12:23 am
evaporation and strengthen the storm we expect that that process to keep happening and in fact you know become more pronounced in the years to come these are the kind of storms that are going to happen more often and more importantly in combination with sea level rise we're starting to see some really serious impacts repeatedly in the wintertime but is it possible to blame climate change specifically this point in time and this may be part of a of a trend for was things dorms but do we know for sure well i mean it's sort of like you know trying to ask specifically where. well where certain bit of air came from it's sort of it's complicated to talk about individual weather events but in
12:24 am
general when we have an atmosphere that's fundamentally change we change the composition of the atmosphere that is going to result in different weather at all places in the world at all times and that's just the situation that we're in so i think it's sort of irresponsible to talk about weather without talking about the context of climate change that's just what our reality is now and talking about individual weather events without relating those back to the root causes in this case which is you know warmer ocean waters in addition to all the other things that have caused these kinds of storms for for centuries right so this is that's something where you know we're just this woman is in much worse sure the woman ration is the key thing here as we go northeast as which is what we're seeing on the east coast the tourist the bad we've had hurricanes this year we've had cycling but they will be juiced up if you like by this this warming ocean
12:25 am
yeah it's just the tilt of the odds to give a that much more of a chance for storms to strengthen more quickly than they otherwise would have so it's all a question of probability and that's why you know you'll find meteorologists that are really hesitant to talk about individual weather events on the other hand i think that it's also irresponsible to never mention climate change or try to divert away from that as part of the process that's going on here briefly if you would what we're talking about what we're seeing now then in these changing times these changes whether this is happening off or one degree increase in temperature since industrial times. we look at trying to keep it within what two and a half to two degrees and preferably one of the half degrees so where are we heading. well well i mean the best guess if you look at all the paris commitments over the last couple of years that have come through around the world we're looking at a three and a half to greece celsius rise by the end of the century that's the pace we're on right now and you know it we're starting to get into territory
12:26 am
a point it's sort of hard to know exactly how the atmosphere will change with that much warming you know in context going back to lasts. a few hundred thousand years we've only we've only varied by about one degree celsius total on earth and now we're talking about a lot more than that in the span of just one hundred years ok eric we'll have to leave it there fascinating told she appreciates very much thank you eric holder us thanks so much. well long lines of people have formed outside many supermarkets in venezuela are off to the government ordered them to reduce their prices to the levels of a month ago despite the nation's rampant inflation hundreds of people gathered outside one shop in the capital caracas to money get opened its doors so they could buy much needed food and medical supplies of venezuela does not publish an official inflation rate some international estimates put it at more than one thousand
12:27 am
percent president nicolas maduro blames the economic crisis on an international conspiracy. you know something you're going to write we arrived early but we couldn't use in the prices were matched last night but today the price is a normal the ridiculous prices very elevated compared to the income of venus whalen's well of most business while. we understand supermarket chains have a right to increase prices because it's relative but not in such an exorbitant manner three hundred percent i think there should be a bit of control and if there were some control we could purchase things. still to come on algis or we report from germany where the status of refugees like book nerd and his younger brother could become a key issue in coalition towards. our international museum of modern challenging intolerance and self-censorship. we don't support coming up twenty

12:34 am
be frightening voters which could damage the democratic process less political participation less third out. because of fear less political you know less people voting. i know about it and is hinders the strength of a democratic system in the i.p.o. now there are over three thousand four hundred elected positions up for grabs in the upcoming elections but it's candidates for local posts who are especially vulnerable targets by organized crime twenty one local public servants were murdered in two thousand and seventeen which was also a record breaking year for homicides in mexico the concern now is over the potential for yet another exceptionally violent year as we approach the two thousand and eighteen general election but up alone i just needa mexico city funerals have been held to four policemen killed in a bomb attack in indian administered kashmir it is the latest in a series of bombings by rebels who want to end india's rule of the northwest region

12:37 am
failed coup in two thousand and sixteen the foreign ministers acknowledged that differences remain but said they believe they can tackle their issues through dialogue and cooperation. while in germany talks are about to resume between the parties that could form a new coalition government off the legacy is inconclusive election one potential sticking point between the christian democrats and the social democrats concerns the refugee crisis and whether relatives of people already in germany can join them in the country from of area is dominic cain. it's time for nine year old michael michael to do his homework and as in many families his big brother is on hand to help in fact twenty two year old math mord is more of a father to michael than an elder brother. because as yazidi refugees these two have been granted asylum in germany but for the past two years their parents and siblings have been stuck in a holding camp for migrants increase when the news of the world view was going up
12:38 am
germany told them they could come join us here but then a few months ago we were told they could not go the official said you have no documents that prove your brother is related to your parents paid for the papers to compromise and they said they needed to test michael's d.n.a. and now finally they've said that ok your parents can come. but the brothers hopes of a reunion have been dashed twice before and their situation is not unique since twenty sixteen germany has put a temporary hold on reuniting the families of people who are not classed as refugees the bavarian christian social union and go to medical system party in the southern state says while genuine refugees should be allowed in those with subsidiary protection and his claims for asylum are rejected should not we are objecting to the roped off so called subsidiary. except that if
12:39 am
you choose to bring their family to terminate because to be honest this would. exhaust our capacities what makes this view more interesting is that stefan meyer speaks on this issue not just for his party but also for angle americans christian democrats but this particular point of view is not shared by the social democrats and with coalition talks between the three parties now intensifying in the new year the question is might this issue be a sticking point. because the social democrats believe that where possible families who qualified to be reunited should be allowed to do so the political fight in germany is now about how to bring a government together from parties with such differing vs from mahmoud and michael its how to bring their family back together dominant al-jazeera in bavaria
