1:00 pm
and literally using whatever they can get their hands on to throw at the other side the army is there but they're doing nothing soldiers are standing on their tanks observing what is happening all of this happening in front of the cairo museum which houses priceless antiquities so a lot of concern over whether or not that museum will be broken into again at the same time we have heard gunshots and as i'm talking to you i can hear military helicopters circling above the square is just a short distance behind me it's on the other side of the river and there are fears that protesters will spread further because a short time ago they made their way slightly out of tahrir square into the streets surrounding the area they injured the fear the aggression the anger this really is a tipping point in these protests and in these demonstrations and many are saying that the egyptian president will not have a reason to say you need me look at me i am needed for stability this certainly is a pro-government mobilization as well if the rumors are to be believed what we do
1:01 pm
understand is that on the clothing of some of those pro government supporters were police id people have been asking the question where have been the police the last few days and if indeed these ideas are correct it seems the police have been preparing themselves for today's violence we also know that a lot of these probiotic supporters are thugs or we've been told that the feds are also being told and we have been told since the early hours of the smalling that people have been coming to the streets because they've been paid paid to go out to the streets and show their support to mubarak what is significant about these demonstrations is that until now this has been a leader in this protest there has been a lot of talk about the fact that the various opposition groups have come together but not under one banner now mohamad al baradei is the name that has been put forward the former head of the international atomic energy agency and he has said that in his he is prepared to head an interim government but ask people here on the streets what they think of him assuming they even know who he is most people who do not lie. kim now he's come on board and he has criticized today's demonstrations he
1:02 pm
says that president mubarak is using scare tactics against the people whether he says that whether he doesn't say that what is true is that there is to say and among the opposition groups we're hearing that some groups are saying yes it's need to the president now we hear other groups like al baradei himself in the muslim brotherhood saying no they're not prepared to meet with mubarak until he steps down either way the voice on the street is that they do not want al baradei they do believe that he is of the same cloth as mubarak people saying that they really want to be left to decide for themselves who is their leader not imposed from the outside because they do believe that both mubarak and al baradei are being supported by the united states and that the u.s. is meddling in internal egyptian affairs because a message was put out by the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov he has called on the world community to allow interruptions to decide for themselves. we want to see egypt as a stable thriving democratic state we want the current social political and economic problems to be resolved as soon as possible through peaceful means but
1:03 pm
it's up to gyptian politicians and the people to decide how this could be done in practice we don't think it's helpful to impose solutions from outside even ultimatums egyptian political forces need to find a consensus which there's been no reaction so far from president mubarak but no doubt whatever he has to say what only install the anger on the streets of cairo. or for more on this let's cross live to a pro israel advocate in the allows or as he joins us from jerusalem many thanks for joining us here mr last for us now is israel concerned what's happening in egypt and how can the political crisis there affect israel status in the middle east do you think. well i think israelis today are looking at their television screens and reading the newspapers both with a sense of hope and anxiety on the one hand there's hope because democracy which we have here in israel is spreading throughout the middle east to arab countries which
1:04 pm
haven't seen democracy before he had on the other hand there's a fear and trepidation the question which every israeli is asking themselves today is at the end of the day will that thirty year old peace that we've had with egypt last so again i think there's mixed feelings one there's certainly a sense of of joy that there's democracy spreading but israel isn't only the going to be the only democracy in the middle east yet on the other hand where is it going to lead and will that peace that we've had survive now many think that the u.s. is involved in egypt's internal politics having been a long supporter of mubarak's regime but washington now seems to be changing its rhetoric why is that i think. again i think that's a question which should be directed towards. american spokesperson here in israel israel's looking from the sides as i heard with another interview just before me i
1:05 pm
think that the policy is egypt has to decide the people of egypt have to take their own fate into their own hands and really this is a battle for democracy the question we're asking here in israel is at the end of the day when a new government presumably is going to be created will it still be willing to hold out its hands for peace with israel and i think that that's a major concern both here in jerusalem and in tel aviv we have a generation today of his rabies by the way who only remember peace with egypt we have a generation who don't even remember nine hundred seventy nine and that handshake between sadat and menachem begin so the issue is can we carry on despite the changes which are taking place which despite the democracy within the arab world can we carry on and guarantee the continued peace between the two countries on the two people and would you agree with. jeff that this international support for
1:06 pm
israel is parts of the problems that we're seeing in egypt and elsewhere in the middle east would you agree with that. what's the connection. you know if you can blame israel then blame israel but there's no connection between the western support for israel the reason why the west supports israel is because up until now we've been the only democracy in the middle east and we've seen arab countries being headed by dictators perhaps finally we're seeing democracy spread throughout the middle east which it can only be a good thing the question really is and the real issue is will the peace continue israelis are hoping that the peace with egypt the peace with jordan will continue and you never know we may be able to make that peace further afield with syria and other countries within the within the arab world and on that sustaining of the situation do you think this wave of unrest in egypt is likely to spin into
1:07 pm
neighboring countries well it seems to be many people talking about the domino effect and we are seeing countries you've been reporting both in jordan bahrain yemen all looking at this domino effect which is taking place i don't think egypt is going to be the last country what i do think is important is that egypt is one of the most important countries in the arab world much of the arab world today saying if it can happen in the streets of cairo perhaps it can happen here so democracy does seem to be spreading the question is will that democracy lead to a rise of islamic fundamentalism or will it continue the peace process as a process that is or has been looking for with other countries and the peace there has already with egypt and jordan and the process with the palestinians i came here last rites many thanks for joining us from from jerusalem many thanks pleasure. now
1:08 pm
what's behind the uprising and what lies ahead for egypt those questions explored in the latest edition of crosstalk that's coming up at eight pm g.m.t. here. the future of the mubarak regime is not so much being decided on the streets of egypt but mainly. there are certainly hard talks going on behind the scenes between egypt and indeed the americans and what is staggering is that we haven't heard from the obama administration a clear and unequivocal demand for mubarak to do it but on a bill if i could just interject. i mean you could lay this at the doorstep of the u.s. but you know at the end of the day the only world leader who's been unequivocal about this is prime minister erdogan of turkey the european leaders the american leaders even the latin american leaders. leaders all have been all of been silent so i
1:09 pm
think it's a little misleading to leave this on the doorstep of the american here but i mean i don't want to see the reasoning or there really was again. he was a client of the united states and that's probably the difference here. and you were rushed to u.s. nuclear reduction pact approved on all levels in moscow has been signed by the u.s. president the document also known as the start treaty will see both sides. by a third let's get some more details on this do you see catherine of lisa what is the bottom and signature of need for the treaty. hi alice was a historic development of course just almost an hour and a half ago we saw the u.s. president signing this incredible treaty in the oval office he was joined by a whole host of members of his administration including vice president joe biden
1:10 pm
secretary of state hillary clinton we also saw defense secretary robert gates among others and also a few of the critical lawmakers that have helped push this treaty through some of the her. that have faced in the u.s. senate namely senator. dick lugar and of course john kerry now this is an incredible development because it pushes this treaty one more step towards final ratification now the next process is for secretary of state hillary clinton to meet with her russian counterpart foreign minister sergey lavrov at the munich security council conference was supposed to come up this weekend in munich of course where they're going to exchange the so-called instruments of ratification these are the actual signed documents which will fully put this treaty into force so it's a very exciting developments that we've been reporting on for quite some time and have waited for a long while for for it's actually can through the have been some pretty major stumbling blocks have there between moscow and washington during the work on this
1:11 pm
treaty does the final agreement mean those differences have been overcome. well there have been but i would have to say that the bigger stumbling blocks to this treaty has been within washington itself i mean we saw a very vocal minority but of course a minority of lawmakers who were very clearly opposed to this treaty they wanted more time to look into it they were concerned about some of the limits that they felt to put on a u.s. defense but of course the consensus here in washington both by the republicans by the democrats by the administration is that this is a critical agreements that brings the world one step closer to a nuclear free situation one step closer to a safer world which is of course a critical development at a time when there's so much turmoil and i'm certainty starting from the unrest in egypt so while there have been some stumbling blocks it does look like the stork agreement has finally been pushed through and we await the exchange of the documents this weekend for it to fully come into force if you see many things on as easy as you can of the reporting from washington d.c.

secret operations in the united states irish authorities say that this is a result of an investigation which started right after a summer spy scandal between moscow and washington with a group of people who were arrested in the united states and found guilty of being secret russian agents all of them were deep rooted and it was largely covered by international media that's why in the name on that shop one turned up a successful young business woman who was quickly deemed the russian james bond girl back then it was announced that some of the members of that group had irish passports however it's not known whether the diplomat is being deported now from oral and was directly connected to this alleged theft and forgery neither do we know his name or when he's to be sent out of the country. well there's always more news blogs and feet just stories on our website r.t. dot com here's just what's online view right now hobbies very evocative of people you take them up but some are more ambitious than taking. place in skill that's how
