syria's armed drug balls are on the defensive in the commercial capital aleppo but helps on the way as they're promised fresh multimillion dollar support from britain . while the u.s. and its allies seek new ways to pressure to ask us outside the framework of the un with hillary clinton in turkey for talks. major israeli newspaper says tele believe it could go it alone and strike iran the answer knows no member after failing to convince the u.s. that sanctions and diplomacy are just not working. well and welcome to our team this saturday where we broadcast you love from the
heart of moscow and kara terrell well in syria's a largest city armed rebels are vowing to reclaim lost ground after being pushed from my key district by government forces assad loyalists are in the middle of a massive military assault on aleppo throwing more tanks and airstrikes at the front line the findings increased the number of refugees fleeing the city and the country with some one hundred fifty thousand now registered in neighboring nations clashes have reportedly taken place between government troops and the jordanian military on their border as more people fled through the area the rebels are asking for more foreign support other pleas being heard with britain promising nearly eight million dollars worth of new equipment syrian activist omar would call says there is little transparency to the move. a turkish member of the parliament said that ambulances used to clear wounded persons from inside syria into turkey are
actually taking ammunition and weaponry to inside syria it does go back to mr hague statement he said that's communication weapons communication devices will be sent in order to warn civilians against impeding impending story government attacks know who's going to be warning them are there satellite images that are going to be passed to the ground will those communication devices be released into civilians or will they be sent to rebels and will they be used as they are intended who can guarantee that you can guarantee that body armor is going to be used not to assassinate political opponents in front of t.v. cameras just like what they did with the burger if only you know we need a little bit more transparency with this. international efforts to mediate peace in syria are being revived. and veteran diplomats poised to become the new envoy to the complex sound after coffee and on quit in frustration here's artie's peter oliver it's not a job many people would have wanted you think but considering the situation in
syria but it's that lakhdar brahimi will be taking over from kofi annan as the next special envoy on the syrian crisis now the seventy eight year old former algerian foreign minister does have pedigree when it comes to dealing with serious conflicts he was instrumental in forming a peace in the late one nine hundred eighty s. in the lebanese civil war in two thousand and one he was sent by the u.n. as the envoy to afghanistan as the united states invaded the country following nine eleven he was again sent to iraq in two thousand and three for the invasion of that country representing the u.n. on that occasion but it's also interesting to look at what type of an envoy he will be kofi annan had quite openly spoke to both the syrian rebels and the assad government now if we look a little bit better he means personal life in his personal contacts we might see
a different approach from him brahimi is daughter of former b.b.c. and c.n.n. correspondent is married to wear one of the sons of the king of jordan. strong family ties there jordan of course a country that has been linked to the smuggling of weapons and other arms into syria into the hands of the syrian rebels and jordan of course a haven a place of choice for those defecting from the assad government to go so perhaps we could see me focusing my attention focusing his attention on speaking to the rebels as opposed to the way that kofi annan tried to do it with speaking to both the rebels and the assad government but it looks like he will take over from kofi annan looks like the next envoy going to be locked up or he the four algerian foreign minister taking on that difficult job in syria. the u.s. foreign policy chief is in turkey for crisis talks on syria hillary clinton's visit comes as steps up threats to weigh in with force if it feels threatened from across
the border both countries are supporting the syrian rebels and showing inconsistency by doing so according to political analyst. it's. very clear that might be going to turkey just to take note what is the situation after the rebel forces of the free syrian army has been defeated here that they oppose it will be there but they can steps are going to be taken and if the double check with the troops who are it playing a very potent well you're supposed to be a free syrian army. you get out through the they are all based on the principles of justice so pick with the day usually criticize those countries go to the rogue states and spot source of terrorism where we have seen the free syrian army conducting it there is playing with car bombs apparently also with suicide bomb burst political assassinations and that's against the quote three this is in this
case is syria that is a piece of the united states and the other countries it's a violation of international law evolution of sober it is called for member of peace to be a member of united nations so we could look up at her this especially with these called trees that are supporting terrorists like people use it because they have lost it by opinion the fortitude the world standing to criticize other countries what they're actually doing the themselves so i don't r.t. the question of who should watch the where. governments worldwide struggle with how to keep us safe only internet so how do you do it without raising suspicions over several liberties we report later. plus a century in the russian skies as the country's air force appears up to celebrate its anniversary and high flying style. israeli media says a military strike on iran could be imminent and could take place in the coming months
tel aviv has long threatened to attack saying international sanctions against the country over its nuclear plans are not enough but as honest and i reports and early use of force by israel could leave barack obama red faced and trying this november's presidential race. according to a major daily israeli newspaper the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and his defense minister would like to strike iran as early as before the u.s. presidential elections taking place in november this year now amid escalating media records and expert predictions that such an attack could in fact be around the corner the peepers front page article on friday offered by its senior commentators and reportedly based off of conversations with israel's defense minister says that if it were up to benjamin netanyahu and his minister of defense israel would cause
a military attack on iran sometime within the next several months importantly israel's security cabinet ministers have been resisting such an option for now what's important here is while israel is weighing this option we know of course that iran continues to insist that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes exclusively and we have seen the obama administration be careful in urging israel to stick with diplomacy and now of course the big question is whether israel may in fact go ahead with such an attack and whether or not it will wait for a green light from washington importantly experts in this article are quoted to say that if such an attack were to take place before the u.s. presidential elections there this would cause a major embarrassment to barack obama as well as really cast a blow to his success in these elections because as we know his main rival republican mitt romney has never excluded such an option. well as the media frenzy over a possible strike on iran gains momentum the u.s.
president economic sanctions against the country and new laws signed on friday prohibits american entrepreneurs from doing business with the iranian oil sector as well as shipment and insurance companies the measure also blocks stock and gold trading with a number of. iranian institutions including its central bank. so to come this hour the egyptian jews fearing for their future. could be i am. just a bad guy titles people to forget the party has insight on how rocky relations between cairo and israel are severely affected those who remain post-revolutionary in egypt false. to eat a tomato yeah yeah it shouldn't hurt that the world we live and yet another year eating better now no more again an exact match to the people on the streets in the

the world the. science technology innovation and all the latest developments from around russia we've got the future are covered. welcome to our team where we broadcast to you live on screen and online now speaking of online the debate over how to control the internet and who should be doing it is as old as the web itself but despite the efforts of governments to shield users from the growing dangers of cyberspace every proposed internet law hits the buffers for personal liberty concerns let's see confidence reports. that. it is hard to argue against protecting young ones from dangers like child pornography that's what russia's new internet law aims to do by making it easier to
remove harmful content from the web it gives the government new powers to blacklist pages even entire domains bypassing the courts but critics say it could be used for altogether different purposes russia's wikipedia was one of several websites to go dark and protest about those shanties has been using this law to protect children ms blocking access to information for everyone including adults and that's not protection that censorship of those with some sort of he could be the right reason united states france germany i lawmakers say the bill is on par even weaker than what's on the books elsewhere but for online activists countries like the u.s. or britain are case studies in how not to regulate the web you can see the different countries use different tactics whether it's copyright laws or cyber security laws or just using national security as an excuse to go after further screech crease speech may be enshrined in america's constitution but in
a world where acts of terror could come not only from a few extremists in suicide vests but from a few keystrokes on the computer the keystrokes of u.s. citizens are increasingly under suspicion if you see something say something according to these f.b.i. flyers anyone with a passing interest in personal debt. a security could be a potential terrorist report suspicious activity before the war. crime detection may be the stuff of fiction the homeland security department is considering a virtual border patrol which would scan billions of bytes and bits to stop cyber crime before it happens that's like sticking a microphone in everyone's living room so you can listen to all the conversations and what is really bad guys internet freedom advocates helped defeat to controversial copyright bills but the u.s. house voted to force private companies like facebook to share personal data with the government and military when it comes to protecting our civil rights and civil liberties we don't usually give government blank check and that's really what these
bills have done in a lot of ways across the atlantic britain is on the verge of a web wide big brother internet and phone providers are reading black boxes to let the government to monitor every email phone call even s.m.s. this is the first step towards the government taking control of the internet already blocks web pages it deems illegal but under the digital economy act it will soon add copyright violators to the blacklist anyone suspected of illegal downloads could have their internet cut off. the war over how and who should control the internet may have been inevitable you're saying to yourself well no i understand this internet concept a lot on the internet but this is. a little better. it's one of the biggest challenges facing governments of today and matter how well intentioned regulations will always be subject to criticism and treading the line between security and censorship while it may be harder than it seems lucy catherine of our

u.s. marines have been killed by a man dressed in an afghan police uniform he opened fire after inviting them to dinner to discuss security issues it's the third assault on nato coalition forces this week four other international troops also died on friday. egyptian troops have detained nine islamist militants supposedly linked to the ambush looting that killed sixteen soldiers on the border with gaza last week the military closed the checkpoint and launched a major offensive to try and restore security in the area egypt's the tsunami region remains highly volatile with militant groups having grown since the toppling of hosni mubarak last year. now staying with egypt the arab spring and rise to power of the muslim brotherhood have soured its relations with israel it's also deeply affecting jews in egypt who until recently considered it their home paul slater reports from cairo. alone forty two and and struggling. one of the last of
her people in a land that no longer wants them selene has merely the photos of who did family for comfort she is one of cairo's few remaining jews once there were eighty thousand now there are fewer than twenty certainly i'm afraid certainly i believe as the embed high tide will be able to forget. she has reason to be wary the new rulers of egypt the muslim brotherhood call for jihad and want the liberation of palestine they've launched a war of words against jews that goes as far as to threaten death it took us a long time to find sabina and when we did even longer to convince her to be interviewed by us she was worried that her neighbors would see her talking to a television crew and eventually she agreed to talk to us here on the street but when i walked her back to her building a neighbor spotted us and started screaming obscenities at her that is funded to persons in my building. the roots of jewish people run deep in the streets of cairo
as far back as the twelfth century pious jews trod these cobbled streets on their way to study with a non-physician rabbi moses been my mourns ahmed has collected memories of the many jews who once lived here he proudly shows me articles of those he once you about. this place used to be fooled jews they were all my friends but they all left in the early fifties sometimes they come back to visit me having and we always see it and talk about the good old times got to remember seven looking back. it was a jewish man who told us that his trade the love of his life was also a jewish woman but his is a way voice today in these streets it can be dangerous to ask where's the nearest synagogue. certainly i am one of those those though you are going to look at not that at all they said that your job problem is to don't let go to resemble that of god and that little country which few data. israel it may be divisions
among egyptians but they are united in their hatred of the neighbor. israel is a racist state which doesn't respect agreements and israeli jew is not welcome in egypt being the treats you continue between us i hate dealing with israel and its presence in the region is dangerous i'm certain that if you have an israel is a cancer or a main enemy after the revolution of january it's now possible to cancel the peace agreement with them and so simeon spends her remaining days alone holed up in her apartment and suffering from alzheimer's disease too afraid to venture out and when she does it's only for the shortest time just in the memory of a fast disappearing world policy r.t. cairo greece is exploring all avenues to tackle its mammoth debt tax dodgers are in the firing line the country's got a woeful revert revenue collection record and officials are making it easier to
seek out and find those avoiding the tax map as we hear at eight thirty am g.m.t. economist roger bootle believes the country's only real option to save itself is to quit the eurozone. greece in my view needs to get out of the euro i cannot see any way in which this current policy of austerity is going to bring any relief or solve the grinding process of trying to bring prices and wages down takes years decades correct the sort of uncompetitive greece is going through but i don't think it's possible to imagine a return to economic growth in the current setup by contrast of the euro breaks i can imagine economic growth so far from being a disaster i think it could be the major step that leads to the restoration of growth in europe. here with russia's air force celebrates its send in their eye on saturday with
a spectacular show in the moscow region the pilots are all set to impress after their high flying rehearsal more than one hundred ten planes and helicopters will take part in the show including russia's latest state of the art finder the teeth fifty the country's renowned aero batiks teams will also demonstrate some of their death defying stunts and they'll be joined by pilots from seven other nations including britain france and italy the kremlin recently made the military a top priority with the valve just spend over one hundred twenty billion dollars upgrading the air force over the next few years. u.s. congress is about to finalize how the food industry will be shaped for the next five years and everyone from snack makers to farmers are weighing in but the industry's big hitters such as those firms making process or g.m. foods are dominating the discussion throwing tens of millions of dollars into lobbying and that's something nutrition and health groups just can't match but food
historian can all bowl us says the desire for natural food is likely to grow. the people who control the east and most of the the most high tech g.m.o. especially. the ones you know it's intellectual property out there and they don't know the people testing it is easy find something wrong with it there's always a constant tension in much of the american base that around the world is that you have some scientists inventing new things for a new flavors and very consistent things like that that go into our food and the other people who say i just don't want this and i'd rather eat whole foods and things that are grown organically or or at least stay in the belief if you think of this search object or you know how our attitude towards changes then we move toward natural food is very big when i was his sixty's and seventy's it's come back now again and people are starting to do things themselves again they call their own you know extra bowls and you're meats and the cheese and things like that so this is
a definitely action against industrial food right now but i think it's going to be the next trend in a major way for the next several years party has been asking how you like your groceries cheap and tasty or as nature intended time for the resident. are you sheep an easy or all organic when it comes to what you eat this week let's talk about that i don't care you don't care so you don't care what you put into your body you. do. for the expense of organic food i mean it doesn't to me doesn't really make a difference i actually started juicing this year and i found out about it when i was getting a facial and there's a place called free foods right down that way and they have the best juices i've ever had in my life kale spinach basal i mean it's like and it's like changing it sounds delicious it's delicious and expensive actually it is expensive but if you
think about it a glass of wine is like nine dollars and it costs the same amount why do you think organic costs so much more the regulation at least in finland it's really strict on what you can do and how you do it so and the crop is smaller so the problem doesn't that defy logic shouldn't it be cheaper to eat a tomato yeah yeah. that's the world we live and yeah i'm a medical doctor is there that the food is. let's say polluted or where it's not healthy like contains a lot of trans fats and so on and so on then it can lead to cancer but genetically modified food cannot lead to consummate this nonsense so there's a lot of people that assert it dies why do you think they get away with that but why does the demo have such a bad rap i think it's mainly some kind of propaganda a lot more people are interested to get healthier and other parts of the world so where do you think america falls in that spectrum very well obesity is the number one for kids here is it just
a lack of knowledge or do people don't have the money time. we want to sit down for breakfast this morning any healthy just got here cannot find everybody's running and grab your time so you're eating better now morgana x. and i did manage to keep him on the straightener or go to the fridge. i know. mind the big why if it is not there you won't need it and that's the best word to daughter whether or not you eat organically the bottom line is you might want to take a minute to consider the old average them you are what you eat it's. an hour to sports next hour the records keep telling at the olympics precious time. wins a big get the hammer throw final while the country's synchronized swimmers get gold at their fourth games and our role. coming up party
