what do these two very different pieces of music have in common. they're both performed in germany and they increasingly represent clashing forms of society here we want. that immigrants relief germany first illegal ones yes and after that the other day i was told that's the view of the national democratic party or n.p. d. here in germany they've supported many concerts attended by right wing supporters but their opponents argue they promote hatred they achieve that in some regions in east germany than you have no immigrants. it's not because of a comic reasons but it's because nobody wants rudy to go there because it's they're always threatened one anti nazi group recently managed to do right when concert goers into wearing their bogus t. shirts when they were washed the right wing slogan dissolved to reveal
a message urging the wearer to leave the near nazi group. however german police intelligence estimates that there are eight to ten thousand hard core militant neo nazis in the country those behind the stunt say that those numbers mean germany's problem is in the top three in europe every year in germany statistically you have about fifteen thousand twenty thousand hate crimes. of them about eight hundred violent crimes so that's also been in the top five for the year was when we put accusations of inciting hatred to the n.p.t. yes they were unmoved germany is the state of the germans but if you're today you have parts in berlin with more than thirty forty percent of foreign us but it's just too much germany has large ethnic minority populations from turkey the arab world and beyond many families now have second and third generation

not direct military intervention but to promote a civil war inside of syria i think they realize that the syrian government is substantially stronger militarily and within the arab world as compared to could die feet but they can use the human beings who have grievances valid or not to be the human material for a civil war and i think the u.s. government officials signaling the syrian opposition and the syrian president that they should learn the lesson of libya is a clear message begin the civil war they want to weaken syria first as a as a prelude to a more direct intervention for regime change. well for more in-depth coverage and exclusive footage you can visit our t.v. dot com and here's a look at what's on life for you right now he tells them get off these dealings with western readers could yet come to light as his son saif al islam reportedly plans to surrender to the international criminal court. russian supermodel

largest economy in the world has found itself on the brink of a major financial crisis. in many ways the japanese economy is like this fish caught dried out frozen and now having great chunks of value sliced clean. take the industry itself japanese sushi shops rake in about seventeen billion dollars annually with hungry customers consuming nine million tonnes of sisterhood along the way. it's an addiction repeated all around the world but it's not helping the main exporters which has been left floundering. japanese food is the most popular food in the world and definitely i think there are many other companies like ours doing the same business and everywhere i sing these companies are suffering major consequences from a strong. when the national currency is up it pushes exports down japanese
goods just too expensive to compete on the wild stage and its profits disappear so do people's livelihoods stagnant growth the strongman and the massive national debt some economists korea japan maybe all appear years away from its own major economic crisis and since this east asian nation remains the world's number three economy the consequences of the big global this is something japan's political leaders are determined to avoid and many are calling for urgent action. an easy industry can probably enjoy the current seventy five year into the dollar level for a little while but if this situation doesn't change over a longer period i think we're going to see japanese factories and large companies move their operations overseas places like vietnam thailand or china this would lead to
a hollowing out of japanese domestic industry and creates unemployment japan is facing an extraordinary. growing. despite the mores of the ruling party lawmakers it is not clear there's anything the japanese government can really do to prevent the soaring from leaving japanese businessman stock money. in japan when supply industry is gradually losing its ability to sell their product machines to just. see the world faces these conditions japanese companies have to look for whatever they can discover but that's not going to be easy in a country where the government itself is the plea in the red japan has the highest national debt among major economies owing almost twice as much as the economy makes in an entire year couple that with the funds needed to rebuild after the devastation unleashed by the earthquake and tsunami this year and it seems japan is

intelligence and military officials from afghanistan are getting training in india and they are coming back indoctrinated review anti pakistan views that's what general musharraf things and in reality the training of military and civilian officials in other countries cuts both ways and even could backfire big time ask cia who trained their pakistani counterparts and mujahideen during that anti-slavery jihad in afghanistan including al qaeda and their associates it was only after the united states completely abandoned afghanistan and pakistan that there are students contrary to the general musharraf logic that foreign training is followed by for an indoctrination it was in pakistan
that i qaida military it's turned out to be the most rabid anti americans and it was them who turned their weapons against their masters and trainers. now for a brief look at some other stories making headlines around the world when explosions some reportedly rocked the afghan capital kabul and the nearby city of. our province a suicide bomber targeted a nato convoy in kabul killing at least three people several people were also heard when explosives were detonated on the outskirts of the city they're being treated at the scene of the most recent violent episode involved a man in afghan military uniform who turned his weapon on coalition troops and the country's south killing to. the heart of thailand is on flood alert as a massive body of water surrounding bank breaks through the city's defenses parts of the city are already under water and authorities warn of the situation it will

protesters if they actually have a definitive message for the banks and politicians. the protesters of occupy wall street are clearly fed up with wall street and with washington so what do you think they would have to say to their would be oppressors this week let's talk about that i would like to say you're human beings also do you see the suffering that people are going through you know what it's like we want the health insurance that you have everybody should have that health insurance we should have the basic rights in the basic care care of we the people more than your banker we need you to join us because they're just people to be an us versus them we need your help poor personhood what is that and corporations that are have felt as though it's ok to exploit people and exploit the planet for profit
and profit alone so what do you have to say to those corporation well i don't have to say anything other than i don't support them how do you say be fair and share to someone or something that does not know what what kind of concept this is and to qadi we practice where a community where we share our resources. are so greedy and so fed by money and wealth and materialism and consumerism you still have a message for all these corporate bigwigs who are taking millions and not supporting their messages and so them my message is to make sure that these soldiers that are here that they continue to believe that this conversation is important and that these people are involved in a process of constructing a role where dreams are possible right now dreams are impossible in america for a lot of people these people need to believe that dreams must continue that's why we're here so it seems like the bottom line is the protesters are less interested in talking to wall streeters and washington themselves and more interested in keeping the conversation and the power among the people themselves.
