increasingly influenced by press many play shows speaking about his own future a sound has been holed up in the ecuadorian embassy in london for over ten months now ted and i take from six months up to a year for him to become a free man and then from the u.k. to independence party told r.t. that a soldier might be right to count on sweden eventually dropping the case against him. i don't see. very quick resolution to this unfortunately for our coffers the. police weren't under enough pressure with all the other police having to do it would be a lympics of everything else at the moment. but i don't see a resolution of your william hague or stop threatening to storm the dorian embassy which i think he was very foolish to even hint to rigidly but we might come to some arrangement with the ecuadorians i don't know but i think the most likely thing is that sweden will realise that they've created by not sending a prosecutor to talk to here in england there's the offered to do to speak to them
4:08 am
to answer their questions by going this heavy handed route i think they've they've made a rod for their own bike and they're going to end up having to drop it but i don't think they'll do it any time soon. all the twists and turns of judith saunders a long running saga all in our website home and also that you can watch all the episodes of the week in leaker's our own interview program that was broadcast on r.c. including the one where he talks to ecuador and president himself. hasn't been. on t.v. . it is to get the maximum political impact. for the source material is what helps keep journalism we. we wanted to present. something real.

the long lasting conflict between the palestinians continues with new evidence of children in the front line testimonies of soldiers and a shocking video how they separated a mother from her daughter in a small palestinian village have taken the strive to a new level policy have a pulse now from ten of their. there were demonstrations as indeed there are even weekend now big sunday which is a palestinian village and in footage that was captured on camera these soldiers can be seen going from house to house and physically taking people out of their homes one person was injured at least six people were arrested five of whom were children and there are pictures of me daughters of one woman trying to save their mother as she was manhandled by the soldiers who were stun grenades now these reports come out on the heels of another damning conclusion there is really defense forces has come under fire from its own rank and file an organization known as breaking the
4:10 am
silence has published the testimonies of some thirty israeli soldiers and commanders in which they deal specifically with how the i.d.f. treats palestinian children palestinian minors they talk about the op or treat use of violence by soldiers when it comes to children and at the same time they say that very often the idea of deliberately targets children using them as human shields during its operations but these reports also going to say that even when children are not deliberately targeted they are not afforded any kind of protection when there is a shootout or any kind of military operation as you can witness from that distance that we published and from my own experiences as a soldier i have to say that the main point here is that there is there is no real distinction when it comes to treatment between adults and children for example we were doing constant arrest operations throughout the west bank arresting i don't know how many people you know on a nightly basis and many of the people that we were arresting were either children
4:11 am
or teenagers did the most occasions we didn't even know why they were being arrested in one of the radio parisian streets we had that we basically invaded the palestinian town south of the city of hebron the children started throwing stones at us so at some point we picked a random kid that didn't even necessarily threw stones at us and used him as a shoe. being thrown. by his supposed friends who did him instead of us we were hoping that that would stop him somehow that would stop his friends from throwing stones obviously didn't help him he just got injured in the in the so certainly not a good time for the i.d.f. it's finding a been criticized on a number of fronts paul if they are r.t. television. and this brings us to the case of pro palestinian us rachel corrie was crushed by an israeli army bulldozer in two thousand and three the twenty three year old was taking part in a demonstration trying to stop palestinian homes from being destroyed in gaza haifa
4:12 am
court ruled that israel was not at fault a journalist tom dale who witnessed cora's death claims israel was trying to sway the incident under the rug. it's tremendously disappointing on the basis of what i saw on that day in two thousand and three it's absolutely not possible to characterize what happened next to them in my view so i told the coach and as i told the. question before the bulldozer driver. a very long drive up. before he got to rachel during which time he must have been able to see even on the face of the shots presented to the court by the threat of military the law. was visible above the took the bull's eye sublight just before she was crushed and she come with an amount of trying to escape so in my mind that's absolutely no doubt that he would have seen on this that it represents a want what happened on that day
4:13 am
a culture in the israeli military community to such crimes and that culture impunity it's the philatelic it fortunately sometimes by the courts who deliberately turn a blind eye of course the main shoulders on which the fools palestinian shoulders better because it's full of civilians almost every area is a civilian and so the israeli government to say we refuse to treat anyone in this area additionally given that human rights because we've given it this particular name. close matutinal happy to me i think that's just me serving that responsibility. this week iran was of the sun told the global political stage showing the despite economic sanctions and why it spread of an if occasion it's not as isolated as largely believed to negations from a one hundred states got into iran for the nonaligned movement summit and group of nations who don't consider themselves part of any power blog dozens of country need

is attended including egypt's new elected president mohamed morsi the first visit to iran by an egyptian head of state says the nineteen seventy nine islamic revolution the significance of the meeting was also underlined by the presence of the u.n. chief who came despite being last names are all discouraging him and independent research. explains the sounds about iran's role in the region the one. mr blanky moon does recognize the fact and he has said so this iran is a key player in the region and nothing much really can be solved q. flowers if you want participation. i'm sure that the united states and israel would like mr ban ki moon to come down hard on iraq and there's he's also aware of the flag there's two thirds of the countries that belong to the united nations are member countries of the nine aligned. united states state department likes to say
4:15 am
many things and i think that's precisely because they do tend to be very aggressive in their foreign policy towards certain countries in particular although i think they have the whole goal in mind they would love to be a global vision monic power. the nonaligned movement now is one hundred percent coming together to resist this kind of aggression to resist this kind of double standards and hypocrisy and i think that's probably really thinking of the united states this finds. so this summit in tehran resulted in a declaration stating every nation's right to peaceful development and he said need to energy seen as a backing of iran's controversial nuclear program it came just as a new report by the un at home of course of the matched accusing baseline extent of stepping up its uranium enrichment political analyst eric draitser the timing of their bodies shows the i.a.s. anything but unbiased be a rainy ins first of all they believe that they have the inherent right according
4:16 am
to the nuclear nonproliferation treaty that they have the right to have a nuclear program so long as it's for peaceful purposes as is now accepted international law the united states and israel too to a large extent are terribly embarrassed about the fact that the nonaligned movement summit has gone off as a tremendous success and the fact that many around the world are seeing the n.a.m. summit as really iran's coming out party in terms of geopolitics in terms of their position on the world stage and so the timing of the report i think is is in fact dubious and i would go further and remind people that the i a e a in many ways is part of what the leader in iran called the overt dictatorship of the united nations that is to say that the i.a.e.a. is always led by us produced think tank individuals like eldora di or his predecessors who will inevitably execute the agenda of the western powers

hundred for in cash and totaling several hundred million dollars he says that he paid for but is also key to travel in a private jet that he bought him a french chateau and he also bought him jewelry for his girlfriend but as he wanted five point six billion dollars on top of the one point two billion that he received back in two thousand and two from which this is being one of the biggest civil trials ever held in british legal history it's been hundreds of hours and resulted in millions of dollars worth of legal fees so we've heard the results of this case . when for better this time around we may see more cases of this nature here in london. so after losing fortunes during a high cost lawsuit some russian tycoons could use advice from a class chinese bond to uphold that premium status or now website. least it's thousands of dollars to make a trade come true that how a chinese all this to try to actually support. that.

4:24 am
a preview. at the level the underlying political vision or underlying political orientation are there isn't that much difference romney would probably be perfectly happy doing what obama does we have a media which is sort of all the control and. all the institutions that manufacture opinion are so pervasive and our electoral system has become basically i can advertising it's become sales promotions there and there are people trying to sell different products one of two products to a product it's. a pressure that's not all it's not so much of the pressure that tardiness is that's a pressure that most people work most people aren't even aware that there is an alternative. let's take a look at some other stories making news around the war at least
