11:03 am
a maximum of 45 years in prison for the trafficking of girls as young as 14 to his homes for sex he pleaded not guilty after being denied bail last month the 66 year old had been found unconscious in a cell with marks on his neck and reportedly placed on suicide watch however there are conflicting reports as to whether he was on suicide watch when he was found hanged in his new york jail cell early saturday morning epstein worked in finance reportedly managing other people's food chains he presented himself as a billionaire and he lived an extravagant lifestyle but the source and extent of his own money is obscure his social circle was extensive and influential documents show former president bill clinton britain's prince andrew and donald trump were all acquaintances and before he became president trump told epstein a quote terrific guy he likes beautiful women as much as i do trump said and added quote many of them are on the youngest side however since epstein's arrest the president has distanced himself i was not a fan of jeffrey yet and you watch people yesterday saying that i threw him out of
11:04 am
a club i didn't want anything to do with it now is many many years ago it shows you one thing that i had think that you have long been allegations that he supplied young girls to his circle of influential men all denied by the man in question just on friday thousands of documents were unsealed from a legal case against one of his associates that alleged a young girl was forced to have sex with quote many powerful men including numerous problems american politicians business executives foreign presidents and well known prime minister and other world leaders and quote epstein was 1st indicted in 2007 on similar charges that could potentially have led to him spending life in prison yet he served only 13 months in a private wing of a county jail in florida following a plea agreement under the terms of that deal investigations into his activities were ended and the extent of his crimes and who else was involved concealed the federal prosecutor who negotiated that deal with alexander acosta who subsequently
11:05 am
became doldrums labor's. secretary he resigned following renewed scrutiny of that plea deal it would be selfish for me to stay in this day and when you talking about it it all gets old rather than about. right now even off to epstein's release as a registered sex offender he mixed in elite circles but in july federal prosecutors ordered his arrest again his house was searched and probes of evidence seized it's expected that civil proceedings will continue against epstein's est and perhaps the truth of who epstein was will be settled the al-jazeera. bruce fein is a former us associates deputy attorney general he says the people wanted to pursue the case will face considerable challenges i think we have to divide the legal process into criminal and civil as a matter of criminal justice the death terminates all the proceedings and the indictments go away he's not going to be found guilty of anything more but on the
11:06 am
civil side it's quite different the alleged victims will have an opportunity to make claims in a probate court which will handle his estate and if they can sue they would sue the estate which would have a lawyer to defend and if they are able to obtain judgments that could be collected against whatever assets are in the estate now it is a little more difficult probably in some cases to prove the sexual molestation when you don't have a living defendant it just a one sided statement perhaps of a woman that you know he forced me to have sex but not impossible especially because apparently in many cases mr epstein used an intercessor woman to recruit these young girls and she would be available to testify as well but i think it seems that given the industrial scale of predation that epstein was implicated in that there will be many judgments but of course not all that you can get expect
11:07 am
that some women will come out of the woodwork for altera motives to try to concoct a claim to get money but i expect those would be the few and the many will actually have judgments. in a few hours' time thousands of palestinians will gather at the al aqsa mosque in occupied east jerusalem for the 1st day of the muslim holiday of aid. at the same time there are reports that jewish settlers plan to storm the compound the whole area is central to the israeli palestinian conflict and there's been a regular flashpoint as both sides lay claim to it jews refer to it as the temple mount the al aqsa compounds western wall is the holiest sites where they can pray for muslims the compound houses the dome of the rock and the al aqsa mosque which represents the 3rd holiest sites in islam jordan holds custodianship of the al aqsa mosque but its role has been challenged repeatedly or and nobody is a city a fellow at the institute for palestine studies he joins us now live via skype from washington d.c. good to have you with us once again put this into context for us why this rise in
11:08 am
tension why now. well i think there are several issues in the background to be taken into consideration the 1st is trump administration's open embrace of not only israeli policy on jews but of the agenda of the israeli extreme right in the service of course enormous the pull that not only the israeli government but also the more extremist forces in israel society such as the senators that you mentioned that are planning to storm the had a machete the 2nd is the upcoming israeli elections in which the various israeli parties censor rights and the far right are biddy in terms of their willingness to in their view of the quote there are certain questions and express
11:09 am
and territory demolish the gaza strip. and so on and the 3rd is if you have this confluence of both the at the top. and muscle the british then and in this really sorry or rather they are all jewish holiday puts come at the same time and these years are using this as a pretext to storm the head of the city stream the provocative manner in the in count on having some sort of course israeli state the israeli police and army and so on so it's in that stream it was possible situation that made you say they have the support of these ready police the police though haven't decided yet whether they go to open that the complex to jewish where support worshipers that they're expected to hold a situation assessment after which conditions will be set i mean that can't be helping tension skynet know who you say is of course correct but there is now
11:10 am
a record of over 50 years. which is that whenever palestinians come under attack by whether those settlers are acting at the instigation of the state or autonomous the state is really military and we spoke to a community in jerusalem almost without you know intervene are either in open support of the settlers or at the very least intervene to suppress the past city and it's and should it come to that this morning i would expect these very governments the a production of whether or not they actually get explicit permission to the 7 years to invade the part of the city do you think there's a serious threat of violence there before the day is out there is a very serious threats of violence 1st of all because of announced
11:11 am
intentions of the so you're 2nd of all because of the record of this when the government insists its relations and 1st of all it's a policy is quite natural even the authorities thought of this and i've called upon the population to come to the heart of the city of to defend the about the mosque and i think that also there is mention that this is not purely an issue between possibly and most of those that israel jews had a machete is not only has national significance for all our city and irrespective of their religion but is also a poor issue for the entire muslim world so you know the threat of serious unrest is very real again particularly in this broader context of what we've seen the trumpet ministration doing and the announced intentions of the nazi out to proceed with the end trigger an excess of
11:12 am
what specter it's one. good to see as always. skype from washington was palestinians prepare to gather at a mosque more than $2000000.00 muslims are marking the start of aid of mecca in saudi arabia they're on the 3rd day of the harsh pilgrimage they'll be sacrificing animals as part of aid celebrations later in the day earlier they climbed the sacred hill of mount olive fast before the ritual stoning of the devil john esposito is a professor of religion international affairs this logic studies at georgetown university he says harsh is an important time for healing divisions. the shock divisions that are taking place today along the lines of ethnicity and religion whether it's in the west in europe or a muslim countries with regard to the muslim world i think the messages to it is that it should address the current rivalry and division that increasingly is
11:13 am
existing between iran and saudi arabia who are for influence because it also feeds then. and exacerbates a division between sunni and shia muslims and a lot of this is connected to what has been going on politically for example the the war in syria and particularly the the war in yemen the saudi see iran as a great influence there and the other side of it is iran sees the saudis as basically you know engaged in in warfare and and and killing both military and innocence and indeed much of the international community has questioned that that kind of bombing so there's a real kind the rivalry in tension within the region which can have a spillover effect muslims in indonesia have been marking the start of a dollhouse with a morning press in today's has the world's most populous muslim nation thousands of
