11:07 am
israeli leader visited oman was in one thousand nine hundred six and now his visit comes just days after palestinian president mahmoud abbas made a three day trip to this alternate. foreign minister insists his government is not officially mediating. because when it comes to many issues we are not mediate we don't mediate between parties who are capable of achieving what do you agree on. facilitate in many situations that can help convince opposing parties on how to reach an agreement when it comes to the palestinian issue we believe the media to has to play a new role is the u.s. and particularly president trump. i am or as a visiting fellow at the brookings institution and former special envoy for israeli palestinian negotiations with the u.s. state department he says netanyahu is trying to improve relations with the arab world. from an israeli perspective this is a this is a big win for netanyahu i think you know he's going to be facing elections next
11:08 am
year he wants to show his base and the israeli center that he can continue to be tough on the palestinians but but build bridges with the arab world and so this is a this is a clear boon for prime minister netanyahu from a palestinian perspective. i think it's tough it's a tough one mahmoud abbas is the palestinian leadership is clearly under pressure up up on the ropes they are under a lot of pressure from the u.s. they have water lost a lot of foreign assistance. and so this comes at a time that will sort of increase pressure on abbas to engage and then i should just finally say from a nominee perspective i think this came as a surprise to many i just happened to be on the phone with colleagues in oman early this morning before this news broke and they clearly had no idea what was going on just just at this moment and i think it's very interesting oman has come from

on al-jazeera and today his government has declared an emergency response following last month's earthquake and tsunami a large part of the island still one ruins the focus which is now to rehabilitation and reconstruction the government says a look at the stability of the surface before it decides where to rebuild some say that should have happened years ago reports. symbols of pride and strength still flood amid vast wastelands of destruction it's been four weeks since the earthquake turned this suburb of palu city into a muddy graveyard where many bodies are still buried when the earthquake struck these communities largely disappeared in a process called liquefaction when the earth beneath the surface turned to mud swallowing people and buildings it's an inhospitable landscape but as traumatized as survivors are some want to return to rebuild here even when they see that

a hole in the ground is all that remains of their home. so i'm so terrified when i see this place my children said mom once the government clears up we should just move back in we don't have to build a permanent house we can just use wood so i finally agreed i have to follow my children we don't have anywhere else to live so who just come back here. that may not be their decision to make though if the government goes ahead with a new master plan to rebuild the city. those that used to live in this suburb of and a neighboring community will be relocated the government says the ground is too unstable to rebuild here which it seems has always been the case since the disaster it's emerged that the government knew areas like this were particularly dangerous six years ago its own experts drew a map of city highlighting areas where there was a high risk of liquefaction occurring in an earthquake this was one of those

and childish and a supporter of donald trump has been arrested on suspicion of sending at least thirteen pipe bombs to high profile critics of the us president of the sexual sales are to say i was taken into custody friday early and florida. michael fauntroy is acting director of the ronald walters and leadership and public policy center howard university says the pipe bomb incident is a way to example that shows many trump supporters fervently believe what he has to say. and he does not yet understand or more specifically acknowledge that those words do in fact move people into certain directions and what we see unfolding in florida is a prime example of that almost immediately after this story broke there were you know far right hyper conservative republicans in american politics and public discourse who were saying that they thought this was a fake and they didn't see it as legitimate so i think that president trump may
11:22 am
have been sort of reflecting some of what he already heard never ghar and he certainly wants to believe that it's not true because again if he if it turns out that is true and even today have a difficult time. expressing that this person was a supporter of his i think it shows that the president is unable and unwilling to accept what is true and doesn't want to believe it and will cast any message he can to try to deflect attention from himself when i think the importance of this can be seen and how quickly republican leaders around the country rush to microphones to condemn what was going on because they understood that this has the potential to solidify. canot of voters who had not yet sort of settled on who they were going to vote this is not the kind of thing that cuts well for republicans we won't begin to see for sure until later in the week and perhaps early next week how all of the
11:23 am
dust settles on this but in purely political terms and i understand this is much larger than just politics but in purely political terms the republicans have a real problem with the idea that one of their own who is a fervent supporter of the president is out literally engaging in domestic terrorism and threatening important americans all over the country. former u.s. president barack obama has told voters to be aware of efforts to exploit america's racially divisive past obama was speaking at a democratic rally in wisconsin in the run up to november's midterm elections people to vote and said they should ignore some politicians anti-democratic rhetoric castro has more from milwaukee. the former president made no mention of the attempted bomb attacks which was a notable choice given that obama himself is among the list of prominent democrats who were the intended recipients of one of those packages obama however did talk about the politically charged and divisive atmosphere leading up to the u.s.
11:24 am
midterm elections saying that this is a dangerous time in which civility needs to make a return i've got to believe that there are certain things that transcend party and that whatever your political background. i'm hoping you think it's wall to hear people spend. years months vilifying people questioning their patriotism calling them enemies of the people. and then suddenly look i'm sorry about civility . please. and by the way we don't need more mealy mouth elected officials who claim they're disappointed by this bad behavior but then don't do anything about. this go along with. what is leaders who will actually stand up for what's right were those of us the path. of former president obama remains the democrats' biggest gun leading up

to these elections he was here for the primary reason to campaign for the death of the democratic candidates for the u.s. senate and for the governor's mansion in wisconsin both of those candidates are actually already leading in polls here but obama also took the opportunity to draw stark contrast between himself and donald trump telling voters that this was the time to take action and that these elections are the most important of their lifetimes results to presidential candidates are wrapping up their campaigns before the runoff vote on sunday presidential candidate terrible sonar has seen his commanding lead over rival fernando have a fall six percentage points in the past week fanning hopes of a stunning turnaround for the left this candidate also has been accused of making sexist racist and homophobic remarks towards about who has more from rio de janeiro . we're hearing video that at any event held by the workers party on the about the
