had aired the story on august twenty second but this glimpse into the darker side of some of the tactics now being used in the uprising never aired again the story was also pulled from the b.b.c. website the network told me that this was due to copyright issues and this very video raises the question about whether such tactics. to be more widespread among the opposition than what has been previously documented they have yet to draw the same level of scrutiny as the crimes committed by the government were challenged in syria is met with more whether by the government or the rebels the violence seems to be the name of the game and he further shatters the prospects for peace a grim reality for the civilians caught in this bitter war. for r.t. in moscow. meanwhile syria's neighbors are feeling the heat of the long running warm next hour a report on how has that friendly jordan found itself between a rock and a hard place the never ending stream of refugees from one side and i'm smugly from the other. weighing in on the syria situation is we keep leaks with

a strike on iran say and mohammad marandi a professor at the university of to run says it's ironic that the us effectively forced iran into a process of nuclear development. 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 if you're aiming at twenty percent and then produce nuclear fuel but americans and the europeans by taking. a citizen. people hostage force iranians to take that politicians senior politicians really know that an attack on iran would be devastating for the united states not only for its economy but for its global position and its credibility. independent researcher soraya alaric believes the iran is the main barrier to us had germany in the region mr

how it's on me had separated a mother from her daughter in a small palestinian village policia has a story. there were demonstrations as indeed there are if we had not been 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 also using stun grenades now these reports come out on the heels of another damning conclusion there is when the 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 in which they deal specifically with how the i.d.f. treats palestinian children palestinian minors they talk about the op or treat of
3:13 pm
violence by soldiers when it comes to children and at the same time they say that very often the i.d.f. deliberately targets children and 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 between 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 arista peroration is 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 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 to basically invaded the palestinian town south of the city of hebron the children started throwing stones

east as we called it back then we're talking about massive sums of money off shore and could. illicit 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 brought to london to school building billionaires along with their own choices maker expensive lawyers and bodyguards who walked around this court area in their shades in a minute singing way but he's got his old ski says that he was done out of billions of dollars when he says that i'm over 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 hurt business partners that he was making payments to bit is also key but they were only

reacting the class. there was presidential candidates have this week been trading verbal blow. they told the safe they see as vital to their success in november election. that republican mitt romney beat barack obama to be gulf coast visiting areas hit by how can i think there's also been a lot of house retore between the team obama supporters and romney paying literally in kenya for what the republican slams bamma stand as a point of policy in the area and vowed that he would show more backbiting in relations with russia however sociology professor william robinson says the highly personalized campaign for high because i said there's that little real choice american voters saying that might have seemed unusual or 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
3:19 pm
particularly to banking interests of oil interests to the u.s. military industrial complex this is a longstanding reality of u.s. electoral campaigns increasingly their personalized increasingly the real issues at stake the vital issues for the 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 victory and that is that the obama administration has been pursuing what we could call a very limited neocon has europe in a little more social programs that are a little more respect and really those are the only i see those are the only significant differences right now between these two parties in their presidential candidates. now i saw it is again it is you can ask the 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
3:20 pm
and the level of antagonism that undoubtedly exists 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 several that control and. all the institutions that manufacture opinion are so pervasive and our electoral system has become basically if i can advertising it's become sales promotions there are brands and there are people trying to sell different products one of two products two products and it's. a pressure that's not it's not so much the pressure that's hard to resist it's a pressure that most people are most people aren't even aware that there is an alternative. right that's coming up
3:21 pm

3:22 pm
islam in washington 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. 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 it isn't or any other radical movement of us lot 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 gazans many apartment blocks they aren't it's the moms denying being radical but admit they do not support their stance of visual branches of islam. we don't divide brother muslims and there can be no radicalism no
3:23 pm
terrorism these are words only used by prove a kidders who want to discredit islam. we were told here believers are taught sincerely and equality and there are no longer up held in modern society with justice can only be achieved through islam 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 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 have banned or even some of prophet muhammad saints how can we expect muslims to react and of course the radicals use this to gain
3:24 pm
influence. of course star stan is a long way from becoming engulfed by the war stuff radical islam how the state reacts to the spread of extremism is now key the wrong moves could only resource in the situation you've got going to all of our g. guys on our sun. so i got our teaser com for more on this and many other stories and here's what you can find there right now. an eleven year old party standing girl allegedly falls victim to ring mommy is accused of trying to frame her for blasphemy in a koran burning case. and also online at the darkly humorous agents pressured characters from the senses they lose eight caps and dolls game russian lawmakers final hours and hours dot com. german chancellor angela merkel has the rest of her visit to china was aimed at tapping into the country's monitory

muscle to help pull europe out of its downward spiral she saw due to the flow of investment from beijing to the european stability by a war against financial troubles that the chancellor words hard to create over the german leaders the overt shows where met with a guarded response from china's leaders stop short of pledging more cash injections into european debt. from the european council on foreign relations explains why 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. offer 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
3:26 pm
how much the chinese invested in european bones in the last two years since the euro crisis began and anyway we probably won't know so there's a lot of there's a lot of uncertainty about in the case of their boss but we see this is a european company and so it will benefit not just germany but also france and other countries in europe but lots of the deals that have been signed. off for german companies are open to european companies and in that sense there is a competition going on between germany and other european countries and mostly germany seems to be winning that competition. while germany is striving to make sure the euros stay there for its old car and the deutsche mark showing no signs of being discarded i too have put all of the half of the. old school favoring following into. here in germany the don't try are still very much alive and kicking in fact in the store in central berlin the good old they market is still accepted
3:27 pm
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 once on the name of three 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 from it's not just in shops that they're accepted if you find a few demarche 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 has not been one of my other lead relatives gave me before and as a gift so i decided to turn them into something it could spend on television. we've
3:28 pm
had them lying around the house for ages we've only just got around to getting democrats changed or there are those though who say they won't part with their deutsche marks as a minister. 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 terms or there are conspiracy theorists. you say that in the banks vaults trillions of being stockpiled should the euro crisis deepen. so
3:29 pm
if the cash that's returned isn't being kept for a rainy day what happens to it and once the exchange is completely. shredded ending their days as very expensive confetti feature all of a. it was an artsy i'll be back with the headlines in a few minutes to stay with us.
