5:20 pm
right now with. terrorism is one of the possible motives being considered in a shooting in the belgian city of liege which has left four people dead including the suspect. an f.b.i. informant or aspire u.s. politicians and the media are confused over how to describe the role of
5:21 pm
a cambridge professor who said truth infiltrated donald trump's election campaign and the israeli parliament debates a law that would ban the filming of i.d.f. soldiers who are currently in the spotlight for the alleged use of excessive force . but i could even get watching r.t. international and i will start this hour with news from belgium because two officers under civilian have been killed in a shooting in leech the city's police chief now says his personnel were specifically targeted in the attack. this video paid online and he said to show the area of the attack can be heard more details now from. the gunman has been killed by police
5:22 pm
we understand that he got ahold of a weapon after disarming the two of the the two police officers that were killed what we're hearing from the interior minister over jambon is the offices are on the scene investigating but they're trying to get to the bottom of the potential motive terrorism is just one of the scenarios that they're looking at right now but when it comes to just who the perpetrator of this attack was we are starting to get more information from the local media that he's being reported to be thirty six year old man who had just been released from prison yesterday on on monday the twenty eighth but belgium is no stranger when it comes to terrorist attacks attacks in a similar vein to this one if we look back to just last year in august of twenty seventeen two soldiers were attacked by a man wielding a machete they were just wounded there were also other isis inspired or isis
5:23 pm
claimed attacks involving police officers in both october and orcus twenty sixteen and the thing is those soldiers ambushed police they were in the most part of the streets and more visible because of the suicide bombing that took place on the twenty second of march twenty sixth enough those three suicide bombers that blew themselves up in both brussels and airports and on the brussels metro as well they killed thirty two people so the very latest as we have it three people have been killed two of them police officers one of them a passive by as a gunman opened fire in we also understand that two of the police officers have been wounded and. officials are saying now that the attacker was killed at the scene shot dead by police officers. it is split again and not just along party lines either this time it's about one word spygate the term is used by
5:24 pm
donald trump in reference to the alleged planting of a mole in his election campaign by the intelligence services that department of justice though describes that person as an informant so is it just semantics or takes a look. there are many out there who would and do call into question donald trump's business process but there's no denying the guy is a branding machine and his labels have a tendency to work like gangbusters mark you know little mark he's a lion ted and you know that's his name we can't have been rocket man sick puppy shooting rockets all over the place through kid hillary crazy very he's crazy is a bit but you know he does it with terms ladies hashtag where the buzz word is spreading like wildfire he came up with this one to remind anyone who follows his twitter which is everyone that the f.b.i. may have spied on his campaign through a confidential informant but that sounds all official and is definitely not scary or catchy q trump we now call it spygate you call it spygate adding
5:25 pm
a gate at the end makes it so much better doesn't it watergate deflate gate russia gate priceless and according to some anonymous sources that spoke with the a.p. terms choice of the word spy was not an accident he allegedly picked the term believing it to be more sinister and likely to be picked up by the media and if that's true boy was he right the revelations of the obama era political targeting grow more ominous by the day claims the f.b.i. may have been spying on his campaign these kind of upset with me read an article in the new york times they seems to feel that there was a mole or a spy in this campaign ok no surprise that fox picked up and ran with trump's phrasing but seriously it's common knowledge that if a toddler is throwing a tantrum you simply don't give them the attention they clearly want the fake scandal the trump scripted for us in the media this week as a name when we're not going to repeat this morning it has tweets to go with it which i am not going to read because reading those tweets is what he wants us to do
5:26 pm
three even joy get m.s.n. b.c. could have been a shining beacon of rationality for the rest of the media to look up to and not give trump exactly what he wanted but no. president trump has seized on this new branding effort to discredit the discredit the russia investigation by i don't really know where. spygate and it just went on from there after running out of steam either supporting or contradicting trump claims little hint either way it still works for trump they want on spending air time distracting the semantics at play here we give you the great debate of informant first by what's your reaction first to the tweet and second to the distinction between a spy term on the president is using an informant there one in the same a confidential informant is someone who is informing confidentially in other words spying you may call this person a confidential informant that sounds perfectly foreign right but what if it's
5:27 pm
funnily enough and a breakdown of the coverage of translate this phrase by the washington post we were mentioned as having not picked up on it but you haven't said it yet but this whole time i haven't thought it ok well then spygate spygate fight we move on now. parliament is debating a new law to ban the filming of soldiers those behind the bill say that video recording is often used to undermine the quote spirit critics of the plans though call them an attempt to hide excessive use of force by defense forces although that is something denied by army chiefs despite footage like this. how. i look. i.
5:28 pm
think these amateur videos are insured like aspects of the conflict that might otherwise not get brought up in the public debate here in israel and it's very important that we have that debate on the conflict. the bill also i want stuff punishment photographing i.d.f. soldiers with quote the intention of undermining spirit get chief i.d.'s in prison and intention to harm state security will get you a ten year jail term yet no explanation is given on how to decide intent experts told us such punishments to go against the freedom of speech this is an absurd piece of populist legislation just meant to limit the constrain the freedom of speech and freedom of protest in israel something that contradicts the founding principles of this country and by the way this is very hypocritical as well because members of the right whenever settlers are evacuated they also filmed i.d.f.
5:29 pm
soldiers this is a time honored tradition in this country in this legislation goes against that value the right wing do for us. soldiers. there cannot. you can never take them to call who cannot go into figures that they think this is this is. against this law of this legislation because you know when you don't allow people to take pictures of solid jails it starts we start to you stop before the mall for a speech then you're moved. to taking photos of. this is the end of the. meanwhile israel has turned back a group of palestinian ships trying to breach the gaza blockade and to cyprus it was carrying patients wounded in recent border process as well as students hoping to get an education abroad local correspondent was on one of the but. so we were
5:30 pm
here it says the morning and there were a lot of possum jurors that were just trying to leave on the boats seventeen passengers including two injured palestinians from the great march of return and others were the people holding these us students and stuck people that have been living under bill kate for more than eleven years we went to the sea with eight not a cold miles. what happened as we saw the warships going very close to these two boats that had all these passengers this is how the story developed. so now we're in the middle of the sea as you see there are expansive tens of boats . to the sea turned out we know that there are going to sail out of the line of where not a while the last point can we can reach and palestinians are continuing to create
5:31 pm
