1:04 am
is they tried to. get information and people from inside the regime but that does not exclude the fact that this is the work of some international intelligence service what is at stake now is actually all geopolitics of the region. the regime of assad out and they want a very flexible regime that can be used for other agendas the main one being for getting rid of its support given to the resistance and also weakening more and more iran. some states have been in siding the syrian opposition rather than calming them down but for their part western powers accuse russia are standing in the way of international efforts to stop violence after the latest attack the u.n. security council delayed a crucial vote on a new resolution which could see sanctions imposed on damascus and pave the way for

intervention artie's marina point nine has the details. as a vote on a u.k. drafted resolution on renewing the u.n. supervision mission in syria now this u.k. drafted resolution is under chapter seven which means that it also calls for the renewal of the u.n. mission in syria for forty five days but it also threatens sanctions against a mask is if the syrian government does not seize the use of heavy weapons and withdraw from heavy populated areas within ten days as we have been reporting russia has stood firm on saying it will not support any resolution that paves the way for sanctions against syria or anything involving chapter seven of the of the u.n. charter under chapter seven many experts say it could also pave the way for. military intervention into syria china has always has also expressed a similar position russia instead has also drafted its own reza new resolution
1:06 am
renewing the u.n. mission in syria for another three months if this mission is not renewed that means that the u.n. security council the international community loses any verifiable reporting and verification that is taking place in syria there are three hundred unarmed u.n. officials in syria while they suspended activities in in june there is still a presence there that is able to assess the situation on the ground and report back to the united nations if you lose that mission in syria there would be essentially no kind of objective force to report back to the international community and that could only make the syrian crisis worse. while some are trying to find a solution to the syrian crisis alors are only adding fuel to the fire as we reported later. the internet is now full of video training gods linked to the syrian on the rest showing just killed we investigate who would be interested in

1:08 am
survivors are phoning israeli radio stations and television networks crying hysterically saying that there are bodies lying about the ground that there are people screaming that they were close that have been ripped they being held in a holding cell in the airport and they too frightened to leave saying that they're afraid to open these two cases really the mood is one of panic the airport itself has been closed and there is a lot of criticism being leveled by the israeli government towards not only the bulgarian airport security but also european airport security what we are hearing is the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu saying that iran is behind this blast and the speculation is that it is the work of a suicide bomber the question though is just how far netanyahu is going to go in those claims for months now he's been hinting at a possible strike on iran because of that country's nuclear program and certainly what we're likely to see in the coming days is commentary over whether or not this incident will so that give netanyahu justification if you need to go that route.
1:09 am
well the israeli prime minister has already validate telfer sponsor over the bombing let's discuss this with professor paul sheldon foote from california state university. thank you professor for taking the time to join our team today now benjamin netanyahu was quick to blame teheran saying that all signs point in that direction but at this early stage what evidence can he possibly have for this i mean what are the grounds for such accusations. and none whatsoever in the western media we hear this all the time even the pan am flight being shot down over scotland we heard iran and then they switched to the libya. nose reports claim that the pattern between attacks in various cities around the world has been the use of magnetic bombs attached to vehicles if you will guess what method was used by most of the chili ronnie and scientists inside iran this is a mossad need and we're going to locations boag area in january fifteenth sorry the
1:10 am
training agreement there with israel and in the agreement to develop a military developments in the future of bulgaria remains of the exporter. of or in the world. is a very close. and i know the likewise with the other countries like in india where we had a very worried the attacks a few days before the attacks the chief of mossad was there what was he doing and when india there are very high is there a union forgive me for interrupting you but don't you think that given the pressure iran is under over its nuclear activities with the current international sanctions and of course the constant threat of attack what really be intemperance interest to carry out this kind of a bombing. absolutely not there was no incentive whatsoever in the the countries in which that screen that's taking place or countries that have very strong ties with israel how could they even have
1:11 am
a chance now barack obama has condemned what he called the barbaric terrorist attack but how far is washington prepared to go to support israel. i would jettison those for it the obama would prefer that israel do the bombing by it so as it did in iraq in syria. however depending on how the election goes for him if he thinks he's losing the election in november he could change his mind and want to be a participant do you think that blaming iran for this attack a sort of diverting attention from israel's ongoing to messed up problems i mean you have public protest we coalition. not only israel's problems or man sudden so far even in the social justice movement protest but in america we have massive economic problems in america he keeps growing his city's future as the bridges go through the world we're bankrupt and we don't need these
1:12 am

transfer but although lawmakers are widely expected to back her she'll still have to face down a rebellion within her ruling coalition parties peter oliver has the details from berlin. when german chancellor angela merkel addresses m.p.'s just behind me a little later on she's going to be looking to garner their support for further bailout funds for spain's ailing banking sector that without that support that money can't be released from the german treasury now speaking on german television the chancellor seems confident saying that we always get the majority that we need however there are rumblings of discontent among m.p.'s here in berlin we saw a minority vote against the new bailout fund that minority coming from under merkel's own center right coalition we've also heard from the opposition social democrats who have told mrs merkel that she shouldn't just rely on their support
1:14 am
that she's going to have to make a valid case and prove to them the third the bailout money for spain is in the best interest of germany now the heartland for bailout money is the wealthy southern region of bavaria there taxpayers and politicians alike one thing most is merkel to prove this not only is germany giving money to spain in the best interest of the country but also to bavaria giving extra tax revenues towards the poorest states in germany is in their best interests that well as it stands at the moment of area paying out the lion's share of money to help keep areas of germany such as right here in berlin afloat so the situation in german internal politics mirror mirror the situation that we're seeing concerning germany and its role in the future of the eurozone the question has to be asked can mrs merkel make the case that bailout funds are the way forward. chancellor angela merkel is still striving
