10:00 am
in the us is always of interest to people around the world. people pay attention to work with on here, and it's very good. they're bringing the news to the world. from here, the news us extra site arrives in the middle east for talks aimed at protecting a fragile safe spot. ah, good morning everyone. i'm can all santa maria with the world news from al jazeera . the united nations is calling for the release of molly's president, prime minister and defense minister after all 3 were arrested by the military. also in the news, the you and also sanctions against beller is over the force landing of
10:01 am
a passenger jet and the arrest of an opposition activists. hundreds of thousands of people, a force from their homes in india as a powerful flight quote, heads towards the east coast. ah, just contain a m in israel, where the u. s. secretary state is meeting prime minister benjamin netanyahu this hour. an effort to turn the sci fi between israel and hamas into a laughing truce. anthony blink and landed in tel aviv a short time ago. and he will go on to visit the occupied west bank as well. he'll be holding talks with the palestinian authority president, man, mood bath. there. these are our teens across the area today. harry force it in garza who we will be with shortly. but 1st our diplomatic yet is a james space. he's traveling on this trip by the secretary state. take us through the agenda for today, james. well, he's going to be meeting some of the key players. we're going to have
10:02 am
a meeting later on with the policy near 30 president mahmoud abbas that significant because this is the 1st meeting of the biden administration as a senior level with the palestinian authority. and remember, they was shunned by the trump administration. so this is the 1st meeting for some time with the policy authorities and a us secretary of state. he's going to go on later in this visit to speak to the egyptians in karo meeting president cc. they of course played a key role in brokering the seas file, which ended 11 days of conflict and then on to jordan as well to meet king. but the 1st meeting, as you say, is with prime minister netanyahu that meeting, getting under way as we speak. you might think that the main subject to that meeting is going to be the conflict that just ended in that c swan clearly it will be top of the us agenda. but we're telling you that prime minister netanyahu is made some comments in the last 24 hours about how israel could take independent
10:03 am
action with regard to iran. so it won't be the only thing that is a job on the agenda for this meeting as a se behind closed doors meeting. now we're expecting to see them about 90 minutes from now making some statements in front of the cameras. as much as you can predict anything in the middle east, james, or indeed us politics. is there a sign of a change in us approach to the middle east? now, at least with the change in administration, as a change in administration, and i think the u. s. approach from the beginning of the by mid ministration was not really to get terribly involved in this conflict. in the middle east though, sometimes you may not want to get involved in something, but it drags you in. and clearly it has dried the u. s. administration in president biden involved in the negotiations for the seas for the end and secretary blake, blinking now on this diplomatic tool. but i don't think the fundamental policy of
10:04 am
the by the administration has changed. what they're trying to do is keep a lid on the situation here. they're not trying to actively st. restart diplomacy in terms of active negotiations between israelis and palestinians. they don't think those sort of talks are going to go anywhere. so for now, what they're going to try and do is improve the lot of palestinians by providing funding, providing funding for the reconstruction of garza secretary blinking is talked about giving the palestinians dignity and hope, but no move to a final settlement of this. of this, of this conflict in terms of any peace negotiations. and the key thing about all of this is he's meeting lots of the key players, but of course he's not going to gaza. he's not meeting, come us, of course. thank you. james phase in west jerusalem. we're going to garza though to talk to harry, forth. harry, james points out bands in the bank and not heading anywhere near the enclave. but
10:05 am
for the people there, they will be looking for something, i guess something that will be a sign of a lives in proving indeed they will be. i mean, we've been seeing the destruction the job loss alongside of personal lives. last year we went to one factory on monday, just one factory of many hits, where there was $3000000.00 worth of damage. the owner was telling us, and 60 people made unemployed off the fragments from a nearby strike could make it a blaze. and so that is being replicated all around. there is a major, major hit to the economy. here are those 11 days of fighting. what we're hearing from the americans is that they want to try to fund reconstruction, but avoid any money going to come us and using the policy no authority in ramallah as convincing that is that money how, how not will react to that. will it be possible?
10:06 am
that's a big question, need you and humanitarian coordinates. when i spoke to her, the other day said that it would be possible to do such things through you and agencies that they were experienced in doing so. but the scale of the need here is extreme. and also, i mean there's that the political level to all of this, how much on monday night, how much is ceremony honoring those who died? it is still very much being talked about and talk to the population here as a victory despite the, the cost which is being obviously very big. i put that point to the us minister, deputy minister of economy saying he was talking about the fragile nature of the economy. i said, well why risk it for war? that doesn't seem to have changed very much given the, the behavior of the israeli forces injurious and doesn't appear to have been changed at all. the best you could do was say, well that's political. i don't want to get into that. so they're not really addressing that issue and i spoke to another person who is
10:07 am
a worker at that mattress factory that was burned down. i asked him about what had been achieved by this victory. so as far as i'm concerned, i've lost the factories down, my job is gone. who is going to look after my 5 children and feed them. so to think that things are going to change rapidly, they'll be a very different kind of reconstruction. that would, i think be a bit of a tribe of hope over experience here in gaza. the kind of hope that's like if you blink and talking about that, the kind of hope that's a pretty scarce commodity here at the best of times. yeah. the reality that entity blinking won't say on his trip, thank you for that and gather in continuing coverage of at trip to combat system current of ours news. india reporting its lowest number of new code 19 cases and more than 5 weeks. the health ministry says 196000 people have tested positive in the past day. around 3 and a half 1000 others have died. some analysts,

10:09 am
malign prime minister in their morty and the government or the handling of the corona virus. congress denies being behind any such efforts. and that would suggest from twitter flagging these as manipulative media that they haven't found any evidence to support that. now the indian government has a very difficult relationship with social media platforms. it was just a few days ago that they asked all social media platforms including twitter, to remove references to was being called the indian variant of the corona virus. the technical term is b 1617 at 1st emerged in india. and it is called the indian berry, and commonly as previous variance will call the u. k. the south africa, the brazilian very, and the indian government is against this saying that no one should call it that the world health organization isn't calling it that prominence. and that either more has faced a lot of criticism for his handling of the pandemic, including ignoring scientists from scientists, warnings earlier this year about this new variance. one other note from india,

south korea, many island community sites the economic challenges of an aging population problem for many remote areas, but this robert broad now reports one island off the south. west coast is trying to change that all things to the color purple. it's literally everywhere you look purple. all the buildings big or small, and the few vehicles that are allowed to travel on the roads that connect them. the full bridges that now link these tiny islands with the outside world. right down to the plates, you'd be tough. even the residents have embraced the purple life on the rocky again, fragile, or i think it's pretty. and the government here provides us with proper clothes and jackets to where will the islands charge a small fee for the increasing number of tourists,
10:26 am
many of whom come appropriately dressed to encourage you to get in the spirit visitors who bring something purple to get in for free the inspiration for the may cova comes from the lavender, which grows here naturally. now thanks to the colors universal adoption, the islanders who previously got by on farming and fishing can ad tourism woke up with id. but it was difficult to get our parties off the island to sell, but now with people coming here, we can sell directly to them. so it's good and i'm happy. the purple islands fame has spread organically. thanks to tech savvy koreans and their hash tagging ways. leading to ever more visitors looking for that perfect selfie. this a purple transformation has taken place just at the right time to catch the growing selfie taking trend. but in the past year,

10:28 am
a surging housing market. the medium price for a single family home, now, well over $400000.00 groups working to find affordable housing, having an increasingly difficult time. first time buyers like all these dell, s, u, a priced out of the market, not being able to do it. now, it is like when i will be able to do it. this is the question, because i don't know if the prices are going down and we still, we are, we still are in the middle of the pin they make. we're not in an environment where we have a whole lot of public land that can be donated to create affordable housing. it's the story. charles dabney knows all too well. the land trust he works for focuses on building affordable homes in communities like miami's little haiti, with costs rising vital projects. a stoled when you don't have housing,
10:29 am
where you don't have adequate job and income to support housing options. if you don't have the ability to sustain a community, the idea behind subsidized public housing like this is to give families a chance to save and buy their own home. something increasingly out of reach. owning your own home is a foundation of the american dream. but even before the pandemic came along, there was a shortage of affordable housing here. now things that was compounded by rising construction costs, stagnant wages, and the shortage of new bill homes, or factors that have big consequences for communities across the united states. the price of lumber hidden old time high this month, driven up by covered $900.00 supply issues. the impact on poorer communities is already being felt. so they've got 2 choices, you right? and then you start paying more ram is the landlord increase the surprises? and then that means you have less for everything else that you need to do in life.
