10:16 am
a much tougher stance must be taken towards some countries including russia but critics have questioned much of what was said going to chicken explains. mitt romney is now officially barack obama's opponent for the white house and he's talking tough throwing rocks well verbal rocks not only the president but also nations at the republican convention where he accepted his nomination mr romney did not fail to once again highlight his any maasai towards russia he criticized the president for not being hard enough in his view on russia when it comes to missile defense mitt romney says under his administration quote mr putin will see less flexibility and more backbone and of quote and of course that adds up to his earlier statements that russia is america's number one job political enemy that they need to reset the reset that's actually what he says on his website as part of mitt romney's foreign policy agenda so yes a lot of tough talk i heard experts say that's how mitt romney makes up for lack of
10:17 am
charisma what's interesting about the backbone comment is that mitt romney himself is often characterized as lacking the backbone as he has flip flopped on so many issues like abortion he was for abortion before he was against it or illegal immigration he was for giving them legal status that he was for deporting them mitt romney is flip flops have been widely discussed they've become an endless source of inspiration for comedians this is this is from the tonight show with jay leno it says actually mitt romney and hurricane isaac have something in common they can both change directions that any moment and another comedian goes obama is like you can be whatever you want to be while romney is like i can be whatever you want me to be there are tons of jokes about mitt romney and his backbone issues apparently one way of showing some backbone for him is this kind of tough talk full of threats

we'll see how far it will take him in this november election. check out our t. dot com for more on this and many other stories here's what you can find there right now. and the eleven year old pakistani girl allegedly falls victim to an the mom who's accused of trying to frame her for blasphemy and the qur'an burning ok. also online the humorous itchy and scratchy characters from the simpsons lose a cat and mouse game to russian lawmakers find out how. a defeat for justice that's how a u.n. official branded a verdict by an israeli court that cleared the military of any blame for the deaths of u.s. activists 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
10:19 am
that her death was an accident and that she had brought it on 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 it's tremendously just pointing out on the basis of what i saw on that day in two thousand and three it's absolutely not possible to characterize what happened is not accident in my view so i told the court and as i told the israeli military before the bulldozer driver. a very long drive up. before he got to rachel jury which time he must have been able to see her. head was visible above the top of the light just before she was crushed and she was on a mound trying to escape so in my mind there's absolutely no doubt that he would have seen a culture in israeli military unity such crimes and the cultural impunity is

facilitated fortunately sometimes by the courts. attacks against muslim leaders in russia have been on the rise recently prompting fears of a steady growth in radical that summer and therefore until she was killed on tuesday in dagestan when a female suicide bomber entered the cleric's home disguised as a pilgrim herself up this comes after a muslim figures in central russia in july parties you've got a piss going all found out where the roots of extremism are leading. the trip to work the tragedy that our stance had moved he was driving when a series of blasts threw him from his core the man who's been openly against the spread of radical ideas among the leavers survived to find 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 to understand most people here are muslim
10:21 am
and that gets mentioned more and more when it comes to the spread of radical islam in washington yes some of the local muslim communities are financed by arab families from states where it's an official religion or they got the money has to be worked off and they demand their ideology is spread here so 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 it's forwards often oppose all other religions sometimes even calling for jihad or holy war against them but it isn't or any other radical movement of islam of course not part of the official religion here but i've already see 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 many apartment block yard it's the mom's denying being radical
10:22 am
but admit they do not support their stance of visual branches of islam. we don't divide brother muslims and there can be no. no radicalism no terrorism these are words only used by prove a kidders who want to discredit as. we were told here believers are taught sincerely any quality and there are no longer are held in modern society look with 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 chopped off. not the kind of punishment you'd find in russia's criminal court nevertheless surge 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 bound or even some of prophet muhammad
10:23 am
saints 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 engulfed by the worst of the radical islam how the state reacts to the spread of extremism is now key in the room could only worsen the situation you go to school of already because i don't understand they let us down employment figures for the eurozone put it at a record eighteen million in july that's more than ten percent the highest jobless rate since one thousand nine hundred five and worst affected country of spain where a quarter of the population is now out of work journalist and author may go on show more brother says that current economic policy isn't bringing a resolution of the crisis any closer. we haven't really tackled a problem with the euro so and we just have a program of austerity for all the different countries to reduce the deficit there
10:24 am
is certainly not an os is not working this is actually growth which is an even worse problem and we are in the midst of 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 we are not in the good but it's not just the economic crisis it's also the economic policies spain is. is now performing a very harsh agenda of austerity cuts and that is actually biting in all sectors of its funny economy and the problem is that is not working is not bringing down the deficit which is the main target and then as i say he's damaging all the aspects of spain's economy well more on the eurozone crisis next hour including an attempt to tap into china as well as german chancellor angela merkel transcode of unspayed link to use it to billions and ailing euros are. while the

politicians are working out a way to keep the single currency afloat back in germany the old daughter market is proving to have more than just sentimental value. 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 authorities sarah firth reports. the black hole of the u.k. immigration system easy to get in but no one's being properly tracking he should be and is getting out last month chief inspector john vine revealed just how bad things that the border agency were getting 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 may still be here i think the key fact was that the agency had no idea how many were actually
10:26 am
still in the country and how many had left in the wake of the revelations the government began talking tough immigration minister damian green said warnings sent to immigrants would reduce the number who are overstating 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 why one hundred fifty thousand figure came from issues to catch people have applied to extend their leave to remain in the u.k. have been refused and they're going to. a million sounds about what a number of people are here illegally about half of which are immigration lawyer
10:27 am
mir's eighty tells us this the blue agencies don't have any hope of reducing 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 top flight in the media or of course the markets and source and they don't come forward if you can promote a transparent and fair line and say we'll 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 will be a need 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 control to see. recently when it fell to the liver and stuff for the olympic games they're seeking their multi-million pound contract it's
