2:00 am
world we live in counting the cost on al-jazeera. this is al-jazeera. hello i'm down in jordan this is the out as they were news hour live from doha coming up in the next sixty minutes. we're committed to a whole of government effort to change the rating regimes behavior secretary of state mike pompei announces a new special brew to run policy with iran after u.s. withdrawal from the nuclear deal plus we are not going to be the media strikes back editors around the u.s. in the world defend their journalism against attacks by donald trump. because. the queen of soul aretha franklin has died in detroit at the age of seventy six.
2:01 am
and indians pay homage to former prime minister atal bihari. who passed away at the age of ninety three a seven day mourning period is now in place. welcome to the program the u.s. has announced a new foreign policy initiative aimed at changing the behavior of the regime in tehran secretary of state mike pumpin said the white house is forming a task force to coordinate and run its policy on iran was speaking to reporters at the state department he talked about the new initiative our hope is that one day soon we can reach a new agreement with iran but we must see major changes in the regimes behavior both inside and outside of its borders rosen jordan has more now from the united nations. the u.s. secretary of state mike pompei o has unveiled what is being called the iran action group trying to make certain that all parts of the u.s. government are working on
2:02 am
a strategy to compel iran to give up its nuclear weapons ambitions as well as to stop its efforts of supporting groups such as hamas hezbollah the who these in yemen and other such organizations that have been listed as terrorist groups under u.s. law even though this effort is now being unveiled the administration is denying charges that it is trying to push for regime change inside iran there's also the question of whether the u.s. is goal of trying to get other countries on board with this new effort will work notably countries within the european union which have long standing economic ties to terror on when asked whether or not the u.s. was going to have a problem getting these countries to agree to put more pressure on iran to change its ways this is what brian hall the new special representative for iran had to say that's the purpose of maximum economic pressure the point is not to create any
2:03 am
rifts with with other nations but when you look out the kind of money that iran provides to assad and to shia militias to lebanese hezbollah it's billions and billions of dollars and we need to get at drying up those revenue streams so far the beggar's of the iran action group is a very small one the ministration wasn't ready to unveil those names on thursday however brian hook did tell reporters that this is a key policy initiative of the trumpet ministration and that they are committed to trying to get iran to change its political and security ways well let's bring in trita parsi he's from the national iranian american council and joins us on skype from reston in virginia treats us so what did you make of mike pompei a statement on this iran action group and how significant a development is this. i think this is quite important even though the press
2:04 am
conference was very short on substance what we're seeing here is the continuation of the escalate already planned that the trump in the situation put in place on day one when the into the white house which is some form of confrontation with iran that talking point is that this is just about changing behavior there's even an offer to talk on the table but everything the trump administration is doing is very clearly pointing towards a demand for iran cancellation which won't happen which as a result very likely will either lead to some form of direct confrontation with iran or efforts by the united states to destabilize iraq do you sense though there are divisions within the trump administration on iran i mean trump himself seems to want to pivot towards diplomacy what's the hawks like john bolton could be saying as you say pushing for regime change and even a war perhaps i think it's quite clear that there are some form of that vision is there i don't think for instance that people like bolton etc are particularly happy
2:05 am
about the idea of pivoting towards diplomacy i don't think we can for certain say that trump is leaning in that direction but we have seen that that is what he did with north korea work the state department is doing right now and promptly or at least seems to be partly aimed that meeting it much more difficult for in the future to be able to pivot towards diplomacy there locking in the policy towards confrontation trying to i must tell you see there are action a group then as a tool to destabilize and pressure on that could then lead to political unrest on what and what would that achieve. well i think we're already are seeing quite a lot of unrest in iran and i think a very very large portion of that clearly is as a result of internal situation there with grievances against the government for corruption in this management of the economy but i think it's now increasingly clear that there's also the likelihood of some figures from the outside being involved in the trunk of ministration is on record admitting that they're trying to
2:06 am
foment unrest in iran what that would do is that it would force the mom to turn its research resources inwards and it would be this able from projecting power in the region and from the perspective of some of the runs regional rivals that type of instability in the iran is probably the second best option compared to what their primary preference seems to be which is the military confrontation treater a final thought from you is this likely to create further tensions with the u.s. as european partners and they're already trying to salvage the nuclear deal and now they could view the destabilization of iran perhaps as a direct national security threat to europe absolutely in fact they're saying exactly that that what the united states is doing right now with this effort to destabilize iran is a direct national security threat to europe which is quite understandable europe is right next to the middle east and we have seen how instability in the region in the
2:07 am
past where there was an iraq war in syria have created massive refugee flows that have been tremendously difficult for europe to handle and if you on top of that have instability in the country of iran which is several times the size of both syria and iraq you can understand why the europeans are increasingly alarmed by the direction of the tramp and destruction trita parsi thank you for talking to al-jazeera. now more than three hundred newspapers across the u.s. have joined forces to denounce attacks against them by donald trump the boston globe which organized the campaign says trump is carrying out a sustained assault on the free press the new york times has warned that calling journalists the enemy of the people is dangerous and smaller papers have also joined in the albuquerque journal says the attacks could lead to a weakened democracy that is vulnerable to the whims of tyrants well the president's not only describe u.s. media outlets as the enemy of the american people but also called journalists horrible horrendous people that can make anything bad because they're fake fake disgusting news the committee to protect journalists says the white house's
2:08 am
rhetoric undermines the media's work everywhere twenty one journalists around the world were jailed on false news charges more than double the number in twenty sixteen and the total number of reporters behind bars around the world reached a record two hundred sixty two that the media is free to write and say anything it wants but much of what it says is fake news has more. here at the newseum in washington d.c. the front pages of some of the over three hundred newspapers taking part in what was billed as an attempt to end a quote dirty war on the free press and were being displayed their goals for the day really are to remind the public about the value to our democracy of a freed independent press and maybe tone down the rhetoric that leads some on the fringes to violence by using inflammatory terms like enemies of the people are the fake fake disgusting news. donald trump's attacks on the media have been rhetorical and that has its dangers but he hasn't been journalists with the
2:09 am
espionage act or seized their records and demanded sources as president obama did instead trump is playing on suspicions about the media the house long when the charge about the mainstream media does reflect the views of the establishment and the elite and marginalizes those who question that at least. and some do wonder whether donald trump is now giving the mainstream media the opportunity to present itself as m to establishment without having to conduct any self reflection answers and what you just did is inflammatory the u.s. media has awoken under donald trump and is likely to take a far more adversarial position against the white house. but has the age of trump truly ushered in a new era of fearlessness for a fourth a state finally willing to speak for the people or is the press simply reflecting the unease of the establishment but ended with his victory that many have a long called for an adversarial relationship between the media and
2:10 am
a sitting president but the question is what kind of adversarial relationship is it just simply belt based on attacks personal attacks going back and forth that don't have substance that don't actually improve people's lives that don't highlight issues but in effect inflate the personalities and egos of major celebrity media figures and people in the trumpet ministration the poser most americans care far more about free health care or reversing economic inequality than the alleged russian collusion that establishment voices blame for their loss in the last presidential election yet it's the last of a dominates the us media and those that do take an adversarial stance to the establishment on social and economic issues remain as marginalized as ever meanwhile the polls reflected the climbing trust in the media nationwide don't trump continues his attacks she had zero washington. tributes from around the world

germany and economy route not. without these people but the mere fact officials are discussing it shows how much impact the migration crisis has had dominic cain al-jazeera in southwestern germany migrant families continue arriving at the us mexico border seeking asylum in the united states most remain hopeful they'll be able to enter the u.s. despite the trumpet ministrations hard line policies that have jailed families and separated children from their parents but how does your castro joins us live now from the kalin texas how do so what's happening right now to these families. daryn as you said they keep on a riving more than nine thousand families arriving to seek asylum here at the us mexico border just in the month of july and what's happening to them now is a reflection of the shifting nature of the u.s. border policy that appears to be arbitrarily choosing the winners and the losers

2:36 am
live in the shadows of the united states there in the heart is the u.s. government made any progress in reuniting children with the parents who were already deported. and they are the losers that i was alluding to earlier in this battle where it appears that arbitrarily children who arrived prior to this way starting in about may until june they were the ones taken from their parents at the border and now more than five hundred remain in government one shelters and away from their families now the majority of those children more than two thirds have. their parents already ordered many against those parents protests according to immigration attorneys and the room in question is still how to track down those parents many who have returned to their home countries and are in hiding because they were refugees fleeing from persecution in the first place how to find them and how to get them back with their children which
