a defeat for justice that's how a u.n. official a bronze of a verdict by an israeli court that cleared the military of any blame for the death of us activist rachel corrie she was run over by an army bulldozer in two thousand and three the twenty three year old was taking part in a protest against the demolition of palestinian homes in gaza but the judge ruled that her death was an accident and that she had brought it upon herself the verdict sparked a wave of concern among human rights groups who fear the case will set a dangerous precedent and allow israel to escape responsibility journalist tom dale witnessed cory's death and says he's sure the driver killed her on purpose. which meant if you just pointing out on the boat what i saw on that day in two thousand and three it's absolutely not possible to characterize what happened does not accident in my view so i told the court as i told the israelis because she before

the bulldozer driver. a very long drive up. before he got to rachel injury which time he must have been able to see her for the last. page was visible above the top of the bulldozer blade just before she was crushed and she clambered on a mound of trying to escape so my mind is absolutely no doubt that he would have seen a culture in israeli military impunity such crimes and the culture impunity is that should tell you too fortunately sometimes by the courts. attacks against spiritual leaders in russia have been on the rise recently raising fears of a steady growth in radical islam a spiritual leader are dug a stunning muslims was killed on tuesday when a female suicide bomber entered the clerics home disguised as a pilgrim and blew herself up this comes after a double assault on muslim figures in the republic of that ston last month parties

muslim world its followers often oppose all other religions sometimes even calling for jihad holy war against them but any other radical movement of us live of course not part of the official religion here but i've already see different ideas often taught in small mosques hidden from the me. like this one form a boiler house we build into a mosque in one of gazans many apartment block you aren't it's a mom's denying being radical but admitting they do not support their stance of visual branches of islam. we don't divide brother muslims and there can be no radicalism no terrorism these are words only used by prove a curator is who want to discredit islam. we were told here believers are taught sincerely any quality and there are no longer up held in modern society with justice can only be achieved through islam and when someone says islam is the only
8:21 am
fair way of life and social order they're called radical or extremist and what's the punishment for stealing the hand is chopped off. not the kind of punishment you'd find in russia's criminal code nevertheless such ideas are reportedly gaining more support among young muslims for some experts it could be partly to blame on how the list of banned extremist literature was thrown together. often in books by classical world famous authors are banned or in some of prophet muhammad saying how can we expect muslims to react and of course the radicals use this to gain influence. of course start their stand is a long way from becoming involved by the war stuff radical islam how the state reacts to the spread of extremism is now the wrong moves could only worsen the situation you've got going to all of our guys on that our son. yanis update on unemployment in the eurozone puts it at

8:23 am
a recession certainly here in spain and very soon in many other european countries so unless we have a clear idea of how to reform the euro no we are not in the indigo but it's not just the economic crisis it's also the economic policies spain is he said is now performing a very hard agenda of study to cuts and that is actually biting in all sectors of his funny economy and the problem is that is not working is not bringing down the deficit which is the main targets and then as i say he's damaging all the aspects of spain's economy. well have more on the eurozone crisis next hour including a look at german chancellor merkel's visit to china as she hopes to tap into beijing's billions to help save the euro. while the politicians are working out a way to keep the single currency afloat some germans at home are digging out their

old george marks in times of need. the u.k. is sounding the alarm over illegal immigration promising to take tough measures and create a hostile environment for those who don't have the right to stay but before they can be deported they have to be found and that's what the british legal system is having trouble with authority sara for three ports. the black hole of the u.k. immigration system easy to guess in the new ones being probably tracking who should be and is going out last month chief inspector john vine revealed just how bad things at the u.k. border agency were guessing when he discovered more than one hundred fifty thousand migrants that have been refused the right to remain in the k. had simply disappeared some people may have left the country some of them most still be here i think the key fact was that the agency had no idea how many were actually still in the country and how many had left in the wake of the revelations
8:25 am
the government began talking tough immigration minister deigning green said warning sent to immigrants would reduce the number who are overstaying their visa the government's made a lot of noise about its efforts to cut immigration but at the total seven hundred billion pound government spending budget just one point nine billion is allocated to the border agency that's just a third of one percent it's an incredibly small amount and historically underfunded and still cripplingly under-resourced the u.k. border agency is now under pressure and the latest revelations that more than one hundred fifty thousand migrants the missing could just be the tip of the iceberg let me explain where about one hundred fifty thousand figure came from it's just a category of people have applied to extend their leave to remain in the u.k. refused and they're going to a much bigger part a million sounds about what the number of people who are here only about half which are immigration lawyer tells us this the blue agencies have any hope of reducing
8:26 am
the number of missing migrants they need to radically change their approach i think you need two percent stop promoting a very tough line because the people who absorb the tough line in the media or of course on my person sells and they don't come forward if you promote a transparent and fair lines they will take every case individually. they want to go but these individual groups can stay. those people would come forward this hundred fifty nine would go down instantly and then applications could be processed properly instead it seems it'll be a neat database that will be depended upon to track down those staying in britain illegally expected to launch next month amongst the companies bidding for the tender is g four s. g four s. the company that created a high profile contract to see recently third to deliver enough stuff for the olympic games they're seeking their multi-million pound contract pre-state the cleanup of a catalogue of disasters and mismanagement in the u.k. immigration system so if i see london now let's have

a london based high court body spitters off scale to cut off a slice of this multibillion dollar fortune. and the republicans freshly nominated presidential candidate mitt romney promises a hardline stance against russia but faces criticism for flip flopping on major issues. next we discuss the upcoming u.s. presidential election and the troubles with america's political system was also our andrew levine. we're sitting down with an author professor of philosophy and currently a senior scholar at the institute for policy studies and your living thank you very much for joining me you contributed to a book it's titled hopeless barack obama and the politics of allusion what was the allusion in your opinion and how did it get hopeless well obama of course
8:32 am
campaigned on the idea of hope and the possibility of change but he was skillful in turning himself into something like a rorschach figure which anyone could see whatever they wanted to see changes were not certainly ruptures with the past. and they dashed at the expectations of virtually every constituency that supported him because they envisioned. transformations of american domestic and foreign policy that were far more far reaching than what obama actually. even attempted let alone achieved as far as foreign policy you're writing that president obama's wars could come back to bite him even the ones he didn't start but which you argue are his buy now he pledged to was draw from iraq and afghanistan he says that's what he is doing in what way
8:33 am
could they bite him well they could all fall apart. if the united states lost both of those wars even before obama assumed office but the imperative that obama faced which was also the imperative that george bush faced in his final years was not to lose face i'd like you to expend a little bit on afghanistan you argue that ghana standing particular certain to face saving operation for the president how is he handling that. well to the extent that he can develop a consensus in the political class in the united states to get out as soon as possible which seems to be happening not particularly through his own initiatives he will get out but unless that develops he's going to have is going to have to be a continued presence there of some sort which is going to continue to wreak murder and mayhem and not to achieve any of the official objectives that the united states
8:34 am
put forward in entering into that conflict in the first place if that explodes then obama will look bad because the united states will look weak and it will look it will look defeated in that and that's not a recipe for success for someone who was worked on an electoral campaign aside from the wars already on the u.s. plate you wrote that by far the biggest bullet for president obama to dodge is a war against iran do you think it might actually happen i mean expert even in the was governments a crazy idea. well it looks now like obama has dodged that bullet at least until november by basically by by by buying off israel with our arms what do you think about the president's approach with regards to iran when he's trying to cater to to everybody in a way to the israelis by saying that he would be ready to go to war and to everybody else by saying that he actually doesn't like the drums of war and there
8:35 am
is still a chance for diplomacy to work well i think the result is that although he maybe have succeeded in avoiding the war between now and the election and maybe even afterwards one could hope the rationale for the war remains intact and so the past so the danger that some events could transpire which would lead to. which would reignite the danger and maybe even lead to to the eruption of the war remains real and obama hasn't effectively addressed that issue i think this is an instance of a general problem with obama's presidency and it's partly why it's very hard for anyone or any of obama's supporters to come up with any reason for it. for supporting him especially for supporting him enthusiastically in the upcoming election other than that the alternative is so much worse. because whatever he's accomplished that could not on balance be. given up but
8:36 am
a plus it's always in cumbered by negatives that are very nearly cancel cancel out the benefits the contenders for the republican nomination they have a pretty scary rhetoric when it comes to foreign affairs everyone minus ron paul. they don't seem to have words political solution in there with capillary right and yet you called president obama the most hawkish of the lot why well he's the most hawkish of the lot with. respect to some issues there not with respect to to all issues his position on afghanistan. is at least momentarily probably more hawkish than that of mitt romney they they. they have all of them said that now is the time to get.
