of far right extremism in the u.k. so to a large muslim community and also to the english defense league who are now considered one of the most dangerous groups of the global counter jihad movement it started as a gang of football hooligans and in just three years its ranks have swelled to more than seventy thousand all united against what they call the threat of islam the same ideology inspired norwegian mass murderer anders behring breivik and now it's on the rise according to a report by a u.k. anti fascism group a worldwide counter jihad network has surged since predicts attacks with over one hundred far right groups in europe alone it names e.t.l. leader tommy robinson a key figure given that they just some far left organization again hate say things that when we express how we feel we're called far right extremist so you say you're not far right well not for right now i'm not for any right none of my views of.

follow islam is for islam these it is responsible for thousand nine hundred terrorist attacks of september eleventh there were about one in one man brevik praise the deal in his manifesto calling them a blessing campaigners fear these views could inspire a similar attack in britain if the government doesn't crack down soon matthew collins is a former far right fascist who's now switched sides we've being or the government for two years for separately on the so you must you must view the deal as we do the radical islamic groups the problem is that they inspire people they organize people they fill people's head up with people in the deal who actually do think they are some kind of religious crusaders often extremist groups can be the trigger for somebody to do something something quite unpleasant quite nasty britons can. the hotbed of far right extremism with sixteen anti islamic groups operating
10:04 am
here the report classes the british freedom party is one of them its chairman paul western it was another cited by brevik highlighting a blog that claimed the west is fighting a european civil war against islam but i'm not saying go out and commit violence and the most astonishing thing about this for me is is the whole breivik thing has been picked up picked up on by the media with no documentary evidence of any so-called right wing movements say. whereas when the islamists tell you that you'll blog posts as an inspiration to him amongst other several these are these are simply that they may well be an inspiration to but we cannot do you know we cannot say nothing simply because there might be some psychopath somewhere in europe groups like the british freedom party and the e.t.l. still aren't considered far right extremist by the or thora sees the two recently

newspaper in syria suggests the armed group is funded by saudi arabia and qatar and include mercenaries linked to killing civilians peace envoy kofi annan is calling for a speedier deployment further u.n. monitors to try and quell the violence as guy in a chicken now reports. kofi annan has expressed particular alarm at reports that government troops entered the syrian city of hama firing automatic weapons and said eve confirmed the firing is unacceptable earlier the spokesman for the envoy said the syrian government is not fully complying with the plan which was generally supported by the international community in which the syrian government claims it remains committed to the plan stressed the need to withdraw army tanks from populated areas and according to the un envoy they have satellite images which show that the tanks are still on the ground and that is seen as a violation of the six point plan but in order to get a full picture of what's going on satellite images are not enough and kofi annan
10:07 am
stressed the need to increase the number of international observers on the ground to one hundred by the end of the month just earlier the u.n. security council approved the deployment of three hundred un observers the forefront group if you want observers is already in syria and everyone agrees that the u.n. needs more eyes on the ground to make sure that all sides of the conflict are doing their part because the plan addresses government forces as well as opposition forces and you do have people there who don't like the plan the opposition has not come up with a common response or whether they're going to engage in a dialogue with the government to work out a political solution to the crisis and that dialogue is also part of the plan as far as the u.s. washington says it supports the plan but at the same time they kind of expect it's failure here is what secretary of state hillary clinton said the u.s. is preparing for the potential failure of kofi annan plan to end the violence in syria and will take additional steps against the syrian government if it does
10:08 am
russia on the other hand sees kofi annan plan as the only way to bring about peace in syria and the you want observer mission as crucial to verify whether everyone is committed to it just this tuesday the rebels blew up an army truck in damascus there have been several attacks around the mass because in the same day all targeted at the security forces several people were killed so you still have well armed militia there who are of course no match to the syrian army but according to the plan they too have to abide by it they too have to stop killing. bolstering peacekeeper numbers may fail to make a difference in syria u.s. based political analyst to smile hossein says washington and its allies have no interest in ending the fighting on the one hand the western powers hello the boy the united states and we disappeared from the arab league and turkey their army training funding. are sending mercenaries also into syria on the
10:09 am
other hand they say we should have a cease fire and the terrorists are dispersed among population they haven't accepted the cease fire in fact not only the opposition the so-called opposition which are a bunch of terrorists. hears and the secretary of state hillary clinton already talking about the postilion of the ceasefire so this is altogether. devoid of logic it's totally preposterous. coming up this hour a selective opposition tear gas rains down our brains anti-government protesters western governments quiet prompting accusations up selective support for arab uprisings. and irritating the dragon can china's patience hold out as america's military plays a war games in its backyard we report. there

has always been a threat and russia is keeping an eye on it said the country's chief of general staff when asked about iran and north korea the general's interview to r.t. spotlight show drew much attention in the media saying moscow finally saw the danger of a nuclear attack on archie's town part can clear this all up for us tom can you put this all into context for us. the comments from gen new car of came in response to a question from r.t. about the potential nuclear threat of countries including north korea and iran of course there is a potential threat to the general but he didn't specify any particular country but since that time there's been something of a media for rule with many outlets repeating the general's words let's have a listen to what he actually said. the see this missile shield to protect against iran and north korea does russia recognize that there is a growing nuclear threat coming from these two countries or does any such thread.
10:11 am
so this really is always conduct a joint assessment with our u.s. counterparts which prove the threat is a realistic one we recognize that it's necessary to set up a missile defense system we said bud's ability to gather the effect that we have agreed to produce such a system implies that we recognize that the threat is there. where our some reports are saying that this is a new revelation that russia has opened its eyes to the possible threat from iran all the reports are saying this is nothing new really and that it's really been blown out of proportion but it does feed into the continuing tense political and diplomatic dialogue surrounding iran's nuclear ambitions and also into u.s. nato plans for a missile shield in eastern europe and corresponding criticisms from russia but that's not being done with enough cooperation with russia you can see the full
10:12 am
interview with all of the general's comments on missile defense tomorrow on r.t. right tom barton there live in moscow thanks for clearing that up for us tom. i have the job swap that's ringing the changes india long known as the world call center capital is turning the outsourcing tables i work proving on them that americans. a british lie detector test has revealed that the u.k.'s prime suspect in the poisoning and murder former security officer alexander litvinenko is innocent a polygraph has cleared russian m.p. on the gov way who's become the focus of a dispute souring relations for several years between london and moscow which is refusing to extradite him to britain archies laura smith joins us live with more now laura just tell probing was the. well from what voight has said
10:13 am
we understand that it was a three hour process so really a very sort of sort of resoundingly test it was performed on google voice and misha tive so he was the one who asked for a test to be done and as we all know from lie detector tests a lot of questions are asked and i can tell you sort of three of the most of the most approving ones that were asked one of which was did you do anything that led to the death of a look of was on so was no did you in any way have a pulse in the death of it again his answer was no have you ever had any dealings with polonium that polonium of course we know is the radioactive substance that was used to poison alexander litvinenko in two thousand and six again was no then what happened was that the data was analyzed by this british organization the british public off association they say that from the results of the test those would not and that in their professional opinion he's telling the truth now this was a test that was performed by
10:14 am
a group of british polygraph is as i say the british public off association they then issue just signed statement and they have links to scotland yard there is to see it isn't recognized by scotland yard now of course but of the background to this case is that new government has almost always been the chief suspect it as far as the british authorities are concerned in the alexander. they have the u.k. authorities have requested his extradition but it has been denied by russia which under its constitution cannot extradite russian citizens there's been no reaction from the u.k. government so far and it's worth mentioning that polygraph tests in and of themselves on not admissible in u.k. courts of law although they are being progressive increasingly used as substantiating evidence in other ways and becoming much more widespread and there's been a lot of things this is just the latest point to avoid not having taken part in the murder of alex on. you know and so many people are now saying even more than they
10:15 am
were before that it's time for the u.k. authorities to look for another suspect as i say void it was his initiative to take part in this test and he's also offered to participate fully in a a full inquiry into his death that has been offered to the widow of alexander so he's really participating fully and trying to clear his name all right live from london artie's laura smith thank you. in bahrain there are no signs of violence dying down but police firing tear gas at protesters during yet more clashes in the capital manami anti-government demonstrations have been intensifying since the weekend when the world's eyes were on the formula one grand prix race there but as the sports top drivers went home for an criticism of the regime seems to have gone with them artes it even goes to reports. for centuries it has been known as the pearl of the persian gulf but recent months have seen behind lose its
10:16 am
luster. violence between the country's shia muslim majority population and the sunni minority in government threatens not just to do. but since shock waves through other nations that are heavily invested in the islands of stability such as the united states the dilemma of the us faces and bahrain is a tough one on the one hand washington feels at least a lot to think something about the continuing standoff between the protesters and the police on the other hand behind his home to the u.s. fifth fleet the largest american base in the oil rich gulf region just a stone's throw away from iran and to lose an ally as valuable as bahrain would be disastrous for washington. western politicians wasted no time in jumping on the arab spring bandwagon with fiery condemnations of the regimes in countries like egypt libya and syria yet suspiciously flies below their rhetorical
10:17 am
radar the bahraini regime is playing a very dangerous game now of course has a majority against its own government and seeing a very sort of the end days many people are expecting now of course there are huge arms deals with american british dealers that the bahraini government will be able to use against the protesters the american government lost no time to criticize russia's interest in syria but to explain why it renewed its fifty three million dollars arms sales contract with bahrain even a year after a bloody crackdown on protesters on the island one cannot deny the fact that this is very important for the interests of the united states that the king remains in power and that there is full of the. by the king and his people to crush any.
10:18 am
democratic calls for example for the removal of the american bases from this part of the world as any country any sovereign country would wouldn't want braces on its territory when it's not necessary but want to have a foreign base of its shores for years the countries rulers feared iran which laid claim to the islands several times the last being in one nine hundred seventy one having more than four thousand american military personnel on the ground maybe viewed by the bahraini government as insurance from them but for some it's out of date and running out of time the irony about the persian gulf dictatorships is they don't really need to be submissive at all they do have power energy power and the facts of these persian gulf dictators continue to be so. to washington and and even london displays what kind of colonial mentality must surround these dictatorships
10:19 am
families being left alone to sort out a solution isn't easy but. they at least acknowledge transgression against their own civilians in the ugly scenes between protesters and police was that a human rights violations and behind us the very human rights violations in america there were human rights violations and the thing that are we seeing. allowed. and. we are working. today and what. direction may be heading the west seems to be the other way no matter how high the cost for the silence people. go r.t. . the u.s. and the philippines have staged a joint military exercise storming an island in the south china sea near a marine area disputed with beijing america has been upping its armed presence in the airship sepic region despite growing protests from china asia times correspondent pepe escobar says that it's the latest attempt by washington to
10:20 am
provoke beijing it's a concerted white house state department cia pentagon agenda and the agenda is confrontational militaristic they're not crazy enough to start a war in the south china sea what they want to do is to keep provoking china because the south china sea not only in terms of being a national strategic interest to china is a very important oil and gas tanker so every scene that includes the arabian sea this china sea in the western pacific which china sees as the. immediate area of influence in the midterm area over the u.s. leave is going to be there and they will be looking for trouble that's for sure. party dot com has updates on analysis on this and other stories also online now
