britain suffer even more from this surveillance society in the united states london is the world capital of surveillance everywhere you look there's a c.c.t.v. camera we are constantly monitored monitored twenty four hours a day. now we we in the u.k. independence party try and fight this in the same way that has been trying to do but it's very difficult because you're made out to be against the rule of law or if you don't want to be surveyed you know every moment of your your waking life but the fact of the matter is that there's been no attempt to say that any of the stuff that they revealed is fraudulent it's misleading the whole strike seems to be to take them out because the actual documents speak for themselves and are clearly for the most part you know extremely damning and very relevant. to stay with our two we have plenty more to come this hour including no mercy for
minors israeli veterans speak out pulling humiliation and brutality their army has committed against palestinian children. also ahead acting in barents sea we explore the reasons behind an unprecedented rise of islamic extremism in russia following a series of assassinations of moderate muslim clerics. iran's nuclear ambitions have won some powerful backing as one hundred twenty countries will use their approval of peaceful atomic research in the country this was the key point in the unanimously adopted resolution that wrapped up a nonaligned movement summit in teheran the us and israel have been left reeling by the success of the gathering as they have been trying to undermine it all along it comes as a new i hear reports suggested iran has doubled its nuclear capacity but the document was rejected by as politically motivated there was another blow for israel
and its western allies when u.n. chief bonn ki-moon appeared at the summit he condemned their persistent oppressive rhetoric and threats of a strike on iran side mohammad marandi a professor at the university of tehran says it's ironic that the us have forced iran to launch an atomic program. the iranians are saying that this report came out a sensitive time to sort of distract attention away from this iranian success the irony here is that the iranians at the beginning had no intention whatsoever to produce it you anywhere twenty percent and then produce nuclear fuel but the americans and the europeans by taking iranian citizen. people hostage forced the iranians to take that politicians senior politicians really know that an attack on iran would be devastating for the united states and not only for its economy but for its global position and its credibility. independent researcher
soraya said before all right she believes iran is the main barrier to u.s. head in their region mr brime ki-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 if you want participation and i'm sure that the united states and israel would like mr moon to come down hard on the iran because he's also aware of the fact there's two thirds of the countries that belong to the united nations are member countries of the nine aligned movement the united states state department they do tend to be very aggressive in their foreign policy towards certain countries and pretty clear although i think they have the whole goal in mind they would love to be a global vision monic power that the nonaligned movement now is one hundred percent coming together to resist this kind of aggression. unlike iran and its enemy as
ariel has lost popularity points after several israeli soldiers testify that children are often their main targets their words were backed by shocking footage showing how its army had separated a mother from her daughter and a small palestinian village artist paul slayer has the story. there were demonstrations as indeed there are if we weekend now be silent which is a palestinian village 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 the daughters of one woman trying to save their mother as she was manhandled by the soldiers who were or signaling stun grenades now these reports come hot 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 silence has published the testimonies of some thirty israeli soldiers and commanders and which they deal specifically with how the i.d.f. treats palestinian children palestinian minors they talk about the opportunity 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 go on 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 one is 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 in many of the people that we were arresting were either children
or teenagers did the most occasions we didn't even know why they were being arrested in one of the raid operations that we had to basically invaded the palestinian town south of the city of hebron the children started throwing stones at us so it's some point we picked a random kid that didn't even necessarily threw stones at us and used him as a shoe. it distilled it will being screened by his friends who by these supposed friends who did him instead of us we were hoping that that would stop him somehow did would stop his friends from throwing stones obviously didn't help him he just got injured in the indication so certainly not a good time for the idea for twentieth been criticised on a number of friends policy r.t.e. television still lot more to come in the program including an attempt to tap into beijing's brilliance german chancellor angela merkel baker makes her plea in beijing hoping to kind of else china to use its massive cash reserves to probably
up an ailing eurostar. plus will report on why the germans are something astounding for the torch market and why it's still popular a decade after the euro was made the country's official currency. the british high court has smashed the hopes and reputation of russia's self exile take on bodies but it's off skate as high stakes lawsuit against billionaire compatriot but our mortgage was dismissed in one of the most expensive cases in legal history more on that from artie's laura smith. the final verdict in this case found against bodies that is old school which means that he won't receive a cent of the more than five point six billion dollars that he was also going for. what i want to promote himself was not in court but his old scheme was he a relieved looking very upbeat saying that he had full confidence in the british legal system but once the verdict was being read he held his head in his hands and
as he was leaving he appears to have lost confidence in the british legal system now this is a case that has opened up for the viewing of the general public the. whole of russia's make a rich in what they got up to back in the nineteen ninety's the wild east as we called it back then we're talking about the history of sums of money off shore bank accounts elicit payments made between people often in massive sums of cash. or of course five star hotels ski resorts and enormous business deals done only on the strength of a handshake with no documentation which of course has made this case a very difficult one to judge it's cruel to london to school building a billion eggs along with their own to make or expensive lawyers and bodyguards who walked around this area in the shades in a menacing way but he spent his of his case says that he was done out of billions
of dollars when he says that promote it intimidated him into selling shares in russian metals and oil companies for a fraction of what they were but abramovich says that in fact he would never business partners that he was making payments to but as those key but they were only for political protection. roof in russian 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 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 new win this time around but we may see more cases of this nature here in london. here as presidential candidates have this week been trading verbal bloke's as they toured the states they see as vital to their success and all five of our selection earlier
republican mitt romney beat barack obama to the gulf coast residents areas hit by hurricane isaac has also been a lot of harsh rhetoric between the two bomb the supporters of ques romney are paying more attention to us soldiers are on the republican slammed obama stands as a foreign policy failure and valve that he would show more backbone and relations with russia however sociology professor william robinson says the highly personalized campaigns hype the fact that there's a little choice for american voters seemed unusual or out of place but i there's no real significant difference between the republicans and the democrats regard to the economic program both parties are beholden to transnational corporate interests particularly to the banking interests of oil interests to the u.s. military industrial complex this is a longstanding reality of the u.s. electoral campaigns increasingly their personalized increasingly the real issues at
stake the vital issues for people in the united states and worldwide are not dealt with and increasingly they are simple simply personalized the times there is one difference of substance and this is coming out in the campaign and that is that the obama administration has been pursuing what we could call a very limited neocon is europe in a little more social programs that are a little more and really those are the only i see those of the only significant differences right now between these two parties in their presidential candidates. next hour our team is going to treat you can asks author andrew levine how much genuine choice americans have at the upcoming election here's a preview. it's sort of like. coke and pepsi and level of entire going to die out of we exist in the places where those things are manufactured and marketed at the level of underlying political vision or underlying political orientation there isn't that much difference and romney would
probably be perfectly happy doing what obama does we have a media which is so if there are all those control and. all the institutions that manufacture opinion are so pervasive and our electoral system has become basically like an advertising it's become a sales promotions there are brands and there are people trying to sell different products one of two products to a product and it's. a pressure that's not all it's not so much the pressure the tard to resist it's a pressure that most people or most people aren't even aware that there is an alternative. attacks against muslim leaders in russia have been on the rise recently raising fears of a steady growth in radicalism and influential sheikh was killed on tuesday and other stars when a female suicide bomber entered the cleric's home disguised as
a pilgrim and blew herself up this comes after a double assault on muslim figures in the republic of that that's in july artie's you go to school all found out where the roots of extremism are leading. the trip to work that turned to tragedy that our stance had moved he was driving when a series of blasts threw him from his car the man who's been openly against the spread of radical ideas among the lever survived to find out his deputy was shot dead in another part of town investigators still don't know the exact motivation behind the attack but the spotlight is now on the other stun most people here are muslim and that gets mentioned more and more when it comes to the spread of radical islam in russia yes some of the local muslim communities are financed by arab families from states where wacko business is an official religion the money has to be worked off and they demand their ideology is spread here it's. like
a business is one of the most fundamental branches of islam it's strongly advocated in saudi arabia which backs it up with billions of dollars of support across the muslim world its followers often oppose all other religions sometimes even calling for jihad holy war against them but abysmal or any other radical movement of us live of course not part of the official religion here but i thought he saw a different ideas often taught in small mosques hidden from the mainstream. like this one form a boiler house rebuilt into a mosque in one of gazans many apartment blocks the art it's the mom's denying being radical but admit they do not support their stance of visual branches of islam and we don't divide brother muslims and there can be no radicalism no terrorism these are words only used by prove a kidders 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 that
justice can only be achieved through islam and when someone says islam is the only fair way of life and social order they're called radical or extremist and what's the punishment for stealing the hand is chop. doff. 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 author is a band or in some of prophet muhammad saints how can we expect muslims to react and of course the radicals use this to gain influence. of course that our stan is a long way from becoming involved by the war stuff radical islam how the state reacts to the spread of extremism is now key in the wrong moves could only worsen

v dot com. german chancellor angela merkel has wrapped up her visit to china that was aimed at tapping into the country's monetary muscle to help pull europe out of its downward spiral the leader of europe's biggest economy oversaw the signing of business deals for the billions and discussed trade disputes which also sought to boost the flow of investment from beijing into the european stability fund a far wall against financial trouble that the chancellor worked hard to create however hans kuhn did not only from the european council on foreign affair foreign relations says the chinese are in no hurry to lend a hand to berlin. the big hope in europe is that the chinese would invest in some of the new vehicles that have been crazy like the european stability mechanism . the chinese. offering lots of words of support today and
yesterday but not much in the way of concrete promises to buy bonds in any case the chinese don't tend to make their bond purchases public so we don't know for example how much the chinese invested in european bones in the last two years since the euro crisis began anyway and we probably won't know so there's a lot of there's a lot of uncertainty about in the case of a bus obviously this is a european company and so it would benefit not just germany but also france and other countries in europe but lots of the deals that have been signed. off the german companies rolled into european companies and so in that sense there is a competition going on between germany and other european countries and mostly germany seems to be winning that competition and while germany is trying to make sure the euro stays afloat its old currency the dough it mark is showing no signs of being discarded participator oliver has the details of berlin's old school
savings for a rainy day. here in germany the still very much alive and kicking in fact in the store in central berlin the good old they market is still accepted as legal tender when it comes to purchases with an exchange rate of around two dollars each marks to the euro the store's manager says that there's still enough of the old currency around to warrant them taking it was on the name the reason we accept which marks is there are still plenty of people with the old currency we get quite a few people wanting to spend them in our store for it's not just in the shops that they're accepted if you find a few d. mark coins down the back of the sofa germany's public telephones will happily take them off your hands germany officially dropped the old money for the euro over ten years ago in two thousand and eleven alone though over eight million marks were brought to the bundesbank to be changed into crisp new currency but where is that
cash coming from. he had that is not in one of my only relatives gave me the school and as a gift so i decided to turn them into something it could spend. you know if we've had them lying around the house for ages we've only just got around to getting democrats or there are those though who say they won't part with their deutsche marks as a minister yeah i've heard some i keep them as a souvenir i'm not going to change them into europe and according to the blunders bank there's still more than thirteen billion dollars each marks in circulation they say they get returns from as far away as brazil and new zealand so unlike some eurozone members the bank won't place a time limit on accepting old money. so we will continue to take them as long as people keep bringing them it's something of a tradition here that currency from years and years ago will always be exchanged
for legal tender there are conspiracy theorists though who say that in the banks vaults are trillions of marks being stockpiled should the euro crisis deepen only rumors so if the cash that's returned isn't being kept for a rainy day what happens to it and once the exchanges completes those deutsche marks the shredded ending their days as very expensive confetti peter all of a r.t. . to try and stay with our tail be back with an update of the week's top stories in a few minutes.
welcome to our tease the weekly karen taraji with the week's top stories turkey's stab at military intervention in syria gets the cold shoulder with the new u.n. envoy arguing any such interference make a cease fire and possible. a chorus of support for iran's peaceful nuclear program as the country just as any notion it's been politically isolated by the u.s. with its hosting i mean lots of international someone. there republicans freshly nominated presidential candidate mitt romney probably says
a hardline stance against russia but faces criticism for flip flopping on major issues. and the war of the wealthy but i'm over it successfully back legal attempts by a london based targeting body spins off scheme to cut off a slice of his multibillion dollar fortune. up next on our t.v. we go onboard one of the world's fastest sailing ships for a breathtaking sea rates. playing football in the scorching july sun of the iberian peninsula is senseless talk show for some of these men others see it as a simple warm up before more difficult contest on dry land they see their rivals face to face but at sea competitors are nothing more than a blip on a radar screen. the wind and waves of the only tangible evidence of their determination to win.
the crew of the russian three masts sailing ship mir has little time to prepare ahead of the second phase of the two thousand and twelve tall ships race nevertheless a fine five minutes for a brief meeting ceremony. i would like to congratulate you today as we begin our voyage out to sea i hope we'll have a good start this time too i urge you all to do your best like it was. the crew success is a matter of honor for the captain and instructor of mir he will soon be celebrating his seventy fifth birthday and has devoted a third of his life to the world's fastest sailing boat victory would be the perfect gift that the crew will need to give it their all in the first phase of the two thousand and twelve tall ships race ended with
a discouraging result from the air. of the killer actually we were the first to come in after the first lap but after time update we turned out to be third in our class of ships. and frederic chopin polish sailboats where head of us our sister ship from poland will be our main rival both ships have similar designs and sails according to the time correction will last about thirty minutes during the first phase i. think again a thirty to ninety minutes will be enough for us to win here to give a long blast kept. a. long one by. by noon more than thirty sailboats have left the port of lisbon the second part of the race is short little more than two hundred nautical miles they will need to make up for the time she lost in the first place before she reaches the spanish port of kids is the crew unfurls mia sails all three thousand square metres all.
over all of the boats in this prestigious class of ships mir has the greatest claim to victory her rivals pale in comparison to the number of wins she has racked up over the years she also boasts a skilful crew. strictly speaking these races are a side project from there the russian ship is primarily for training purposes cadets of them a car of academy a would be captains of the russian merchant fleet if they learn how to set sail climb the rigging and timing knots although in the age of nuclear vessels such skills seem as useful as speaking latin. your best out there and where you. will get your any seamen must have practiced as well as theory decides they need to
have certain character traits epaulets as well as sailors are sent to other sail boats because these people need to make the right decision in the nick of time the sail boat offers the best schooling and character training. day pharrell of canada knows what the person of his mainsail wants him to do their commands and not translated into english after spending several months on may he's used to the routine and was. so expect it of him indeed sometimes he copes with his assignments better than his russian comrades this is not my first time on this type of vessel i still aboard a vessel called the picture council on the around the world voyage and doing this made me realize i want to still told you a for a living and so i went to school to be a navigator and this was not one of the opportunities for our work term was to come on the show. there were about twenty trainees like dave on the ship like the sailors they keep watch and they also share courses with the crew there's only one
thing that sets them apart they have to pay for the privilege is a floating democracy even the old superstition about women on board being a bad omen is ignored right you know twenty young female cadets some trainees are taking part in the race. my name's leanne i'm from hamburg germany and yeah this is my second time on the air i would say that the big guys help us but we try to do our best like pulling the ropes and so on it's not difficult but it hard they like physically hard right now i'm fighting the position in the atlantic ocean on route events and that's i plodded every half an hour i feel great about it we all work together as a team and we help each other through it also makes it ok. but want to be supplied.
