eleven am in the russian capital you're watching r.t.m. arena joshie today we take a look at the top stories of the week i was going to we go of anti-american fuehrer across the globe with muslims rising up against a film mocking islam the protests kicked off in cairo but spread rapidly through countries and continents. yes sam as he's a more than a dozen islamic countries have been attacked at least seven people have died during violence including the american ambassador to libya violence is also spread to europe and even to trail europe with clashes taking place in sydney party's policy or reports. the united states has ordered the media speculation of all non essential u.s. diplomatic stop and the families from sudan and as yet in
a statement issued by washington it said that all u.s. citizens should need to visit he immediately now the u.s. has been refused permission to send the weans to sudan this is because the government in khartoum says it can deal with the security situation there however u.s. marines have arrived in the human eye capita of some that this might cause by local human i can all make this that they should be expelled immediately we are hearing from our client at all fresh attacks against u.s. embassies to be carried out this mine that started on tuesday the egyptian capital of my work we know hearing that egypt's new prime minister they keep these at some of the thousands of people who. were in fact paid to do so regardless the protests immediately went to libya where the u.s. ambassador and three other american citizens were killed now all the investigation to go in there has to see for people the race to the u.s. as well as the members to say they believe that this attack has been because of al qaida a kind it has not taken down with the sponsibility but it has issued
a statement which says that the attack was in response to the killing of al qaida is number two by the u.s. and the means from libya by them spread across the our own region it hasn't go on to such a heaven on somalia iraq actually started to keep gone's and even a small demonstration intel of it. over the weekend there were demonstrations in the french capital of paris they had the demonstrations it's it's. it's. it's else it's cold and it's. the weekend because it's a symbol of a continent. australia with the slide it gets on the protesters and civil made. that it doesn't want to see us slow down and say that it appeared on the inside in the sense of was that this impulse to say so in the
united states is the creator of this film because it is not simply this to. us considering at least that this is a kind of feeding the seeds of the state that he would wait sixty five so certainly a lot of anger a lot of violence the situation the extreme the punishment i think it's safe to say that the city is a region a. closely watching the anti-american unrest from cairo as the violence shows no sign of letting up you can check her twitter feed for the latest updates and photos from the egyptian capital word events started to unfold for this. american journalist an anti-war activist on the bar says the core of the issue lies deeper than just the film. the movie or actually just the trailer really which is what's been available on you tube may be serving as a catalyst but certainly the animosity goes much deeper and the issues run much
deeper people do not go into the streets over a movie and bring our p g's with them first of all they generally don't carry them around either this is a case of blowback as many people are saying that without tired or someone else being responsible for this and the issue being this movie and then if you look at egypt the situation there is one where the government the president morsi has made a break with the people over two major issues in the last week or two is coming down on the side of the united states over the over the situation in syria and the run with israel neither of which are with the center of gravity exists among the egyptian people and they've had almost continuing revolution since january february of last year where he each time when they felt the revolution was betrayed they went into the streets so the dynamics underneath this i think are much more complex than this movie first of all in libya al qaida and the united states were allies to where the ground troops in the u.s.
the air support in the early stage with the united states u.k. and french troops arming and guiding them from february twenty third and as reported in the pakistani observer back then. is in many people's minds a creature of the united states intelligence operation. i awake of the violence which started in cairo barack obama said the u.s. doesn't consider it shipped an ally yeah rights triggered by film posted in the states with undead years of efforts by the u.s. government to establish friendly relations with cairo and other a muslim communities has the story. anger is rising rage is spreading and american flags are burning throughout the arab world this isn't exactly the type of relationship washington envisioned after barack obama became president i've come here to cairo to seek a new beginning between the united states and muslims around the world the new u.s. leader promised to turn the page and mend relations tarnished by george w.
bush's war on terror he even granted his first foreign television interview to al arabiya an arabic language channel my job for the muslim world is to communicate with the americans are now you out of washington invested huge resources in building a massive social media presence comprised of nearly two hundred different accounts to spread its message of friendship by the end of last year the u.s. had spent seventy million dollars assisting foreign citizens with the resources to bypass online firewalls and censorship. the bitter irony is that a youtube clip posted by one american instantly buried massive efforts made by the u.s. government as americans were being held hostage by a small group of extremists people here in america think when they put their views on you tube and now the technology is such that it can be seen all over the world i
think people in. some of these places don't understand this is not the view of most americans this is not the view of the u.s. government according to many experts a large majority of the arab world has grown too familiar with the anti muslim sentiment america is accused of cementing the policy of the americans towards this part of the world that is inadequate and doesn't call for dialogue doesn't call for development doesn't call for progress and calls for the moving of those unions because the american interests and some western interests a cause for war and invasion of iraq as we have seen this truck. no progress on the peace lebanon palestine takes the spark for it to you know all come out in violent forms as we can see now on the screen and this is what's happening within forty eight hours the fury that began in egypt spread to libya yemen lebanon and iran in afghanistan due to bush shutdown but tensions in the muslim world seem to be only
increasing there has been a lot of simmering nancy american feeling right across the entire arab world it's their worst. polls show that we're ninety percent of pakistanis she is the primary enemy america's middle of bludgers and it's made a lot of enemies in the arab spring countries america helped revolutionize the line between friend and foe has blurred despite all the time and money washington has spent using the internet to promote its finally foreign policy the world wide web also served as the platform that enabled one american extremist to infuriate millions overseas and the real heroes of progress. r.t. we are. now the u.s. has strongly condemn the film in an effort to calm the anti-american fury u.n. secretary general ban ki moon also slammed the production saying it was deliberately designed to sow bigotry and bloodshed well it was also reaction from
russia with president putin saying all governments should work to prevent religious provocation. if history doesn't react in a timely and tough manner to provocations that are directed against the religious feelings of people then what happens is that the humiliated and insulted ones start to defend their own interests sometimes this can lead to wide bloodshed. the region can fall into chaos which is exactly what's happening now in this respect i'd like to remind the rulers of these new governments and states that underwent serious changes that they should not forget their personal responsibility for what's going on in their territories which with. keeping it was escalating tension in the region charlie and mcgrath and the panties that they are in the u.s. says it was only a matter of time before and rest of the region boiled over we have this convoluted destabilization throughout the middle east and north africa and you know this is
the end result i know this this video this innocence of muslim video is being blamed for all this but i mean really this is a powderkeg looking for a spark i believe that if most if most americans understood what was being done in our name in the stabilizing the middle east in north africa they would be absolutely horrified and what other result can we expect these people you know a lot of cases you know they have no hope their economies are destroyed they see their calling for poor and invaders in their land flying drones over their country their leadership is being assassinated and these forms of government are being installed of course this kind of thing is going to happen i'm surprised it's taken this long and i also wouldn't be surprised if we see it escalate from here if we were going outside in and having predator drones blowing up buildings in our neighborhood if we were constantly under for an assault we too would take the same position i think that a lot of these people are. now we also closely following the violence that's
continuing to unfold throughout the arab world on our web site r.t. . we've got a timeline of the ads as well as a full profile of the man who is thought to be behind the scandalous and a muslim film that sparked the protests so well got to find out. how the debt crisis has sparked renewed separatism calls in spain catalonia this week over a million people took to the streets of barcelona to call for in the panels blaming central government over economic woes this was followed by a fresh and staring protest in the capital madrid with tens of thousands of
spaniards voicing outrage over a new wave of belt tightening the government is due to announce a fresh set of spending cuts by the end of the month and their message was later in portugal capital lisbon where protesters threw fireworks and tomatoes at a local have orders up international monetary fund one director of studies at the institute of democracy and cooperation says governments are focusing on the wrong issue when it comes to fixing the crisis. the basic problem in europe and indeed other countries of the world is of course that there is too much debt both private and above all a blick nothing today and nothing on any other future occasion is going to make that open go away even budget cuts are not going to make a social problem go away which is that the states are too heavily indebted and even the various so-called austerity programs which have been imposed i'm not going to produce a budget surplus which is the only waves. unless of course there is economic growth
and there's a final point this the european union for many decades now has played a game of smoke and mirrors whenever there's a crisis whenever there's a problem to be solved it rearranges the institutional furniture germany's federal court has backed a motion considered crucial for containing the can continent's debt crisis and approved the new five hundred billion euro bailout fund for struggling eurozone countries however the ruling comes with several conditions including a restriction on the size of berlin's contribution that they're going to back a specialist at the school oriental and african studies in london says the most you won't bring any long term solutions. the past is an imperfect guide to the future so far the german parliament has always approved aid i think we are reaching a point where germany has spent so much money that she's knocked in and parliamentarians will continue granting further assistance every time the only way
of getting out of this vicious circle would be the success of the save big spro in southern europe i card see that happen the economic situation in southern europe is dire every occasion we have is that it's getting worse if you probably. you will gobble up his government debt to about limited extent it will take away the said for cuts it will not enforce it voters in their alliance have elected to continue our pro european past broadly sticking to a journalist way out of the financial crisis the conservatives claim victory but may have to form a coalition of where the labor which holds similar konami views however despite rejecting parties calling for an exit from the euro zone everything of some asperity measures looks inhabitable as does our sealion our reports. it was back in
ninety ninety two when a treaty was signed and vish out to win maastricht in the netherlands establishing the economic and monetary union later paving the way for the creation of the single currency but today mounting a euro skepticism has spread to even countries considered poor eurozone nations including the very one where it all began so i don't know at this moment what is the best is for europe i have my jobs because of greece. and the shelves in the netherlands it's a pro european country of course it shouldn't come to the stream level that we see greece now in a repeated fashion this annoyance among the dutch at having to bail out greece again and again has reached a point where some dutch customers refuse to pay the bill of greek restaurants because well they've already paid with bailout money taking on a euro skeptic and anti brussels stat has become a popular campaign strategy from the far right freedom party which is called for the return of the dutch guilder to the once fringe leftist socialist party openly
challenging the german led a steady strategy for europe well we are protesting against our liberal government you know made to distinction between which. part of the problem is you know did europe brussels has a lot of power now and people feel like they have nothing to say about what's going on with their money or we cannot make our own decisions anymore and we can see in europe that. are becoming less convinced of the rationality of continued austerity policies and begin to vote for parties who oppose the logical for austerity we've seen it in france we've seen it in regional elections in germany which makes america very worried about the elections next year in the end it was the center right liberals who claimed victory followed closely by the center left labor party both viewed as pro europe but the fact
remains that discontent has risen to the surface among citizens of a nation part of the so-called core of the euro zone does or sylvia r.t. the netherlands and coming up in just a few minutes here in our t.v. down the back to this cross the u.s. regroup for another round of anti-corporate action as the occupy wall street movement marks its first birthday. an africa to cripple iran's economy and derail its nuclear ambitions seem to be failing us to iran post huge oil fields in the face of western sanctions. we can lease out of there or join us on she continues his legal tug of war with the u.k. as he holds up inside ecuador's london embassy has been there for several months with the south american country recently granting him political asylum. longden is still refusing to grant the whistleblower a free passage from the embassy threatening to arrest him once he steps foot outside sounds as lawyers also remain wary of his extradition to sweden saying his
human rights will be put at risk they fear is stockholm would pass him over to the u.s. where he could face the death penalty if tried in charges of espionage for his role with wiki leaks the sounders lawyer baltazar garzon says his client did nothing more than express his freedom of speech. i do not think mr a stone as a spy all he did was exercise his right to freedom of information he received and shared it but much more surprised that there's been no investigation into the glaring crimes documented in those leaked reports featuring u.s. interference with issues that have absolutely no relation to either national security or the safety of american citizens or defense. well we have plenty more news for you now of saturday dot com so had there for the very latest on saturday saw a russian opposition supporters flood back into the streets go dirty dot com for a full report on yesterday's rally in moscow. and also
a student's video project words and a plus earns attention not only from me as a class teacher but also from the federal intelligence agency learn more on this story on r.t. dot com. in the u.s. thousands brace for rallies against fat cat corporations a hash of the occupy wall street movements first anniversary activists are hoping to regain some momentum by rallying support for demonstrations massing on new york's financial district the protest snowballed last year with dozens of cities across the u.s. corporate america for its role in the country's failing economy. police were accused of using heavy handed tactics to break up several bands and arresting thousands in addicting camps from public parts however activists column up and
believes the anti-capitalist movements can be reborn in more ways than one. i would say without a doubt if one looks at the world right now one looks at what's happening in the middle east in spain being greece everywhere there's a confrontation going on against the one percent so the idea that somehow the u.s. is exceptional and it's just a small passing phase i mean the us is part of the world capitalist economy in the world capitalist economy is in a state of collapse profits rule and then we just get more as we just you know home foreclosures we just get mass unemployment get all this wealth exist but it is not utilized for you to do it so absolutely we're going to see it may take on a different character in organized labor and chicago the chicago teachers strike that they become more prominent than it was in the early days of our if i also read that there's going to be more confrontations as the system dies and r.t. will be following events planned by the occupy wall street movement in new york and other cities across the country so stay with us for more. the
generals trying to spread world wide. the ninety nine percent versus the one percent with all the money. are they getting equality into the economy. with the recession ahead can we afford not to miss. the old you. are too. western sanctions on iran while seem to be having a little sack sales increased to more than one million barrels a day the us hoped strict regulations would forced iran to hold its atomic ambitions which it maintains are peaceful meanwhile washington extended exam waivers for japan and several other e.u. nations rely heavily on iranian oil to magdy policy director at the national running american council believes tehran's nuclear program has been thrown off course. i don't know that you could actually look at the lost revenues from oil
exports and say iran has taken away money from its nuclear program or reduced money for military spending because frankly with the threat of war i think iran is probably continuing down the path that has already already has been on which sanctions you know there's no perfect sanctions regime there's always going to be holes there's always going to be loopholes there's always going to be this game of whack a mole where iran responds within the u.s. tries to ratchet up and you're never going to get a perfect embargo. so i think that the question the question is ok now you have these sanctions what do we do with these are we going to leverage these or is this a repeat of what we had with iraq where we did a great job of restricting oil sales have been doing well for food but the end of the day that didn't actually yield anything but massive humanitarian suffer suffering and then eventually this movement for disasters invasion the russian gas giant gazprom is fine against you. pressure on the company's pricing policy that's
after the european commission launched a case accusing the supplier of violating european anti-monopoly law on tuesday the government introduced a new law which forbids gazprom from disclosing information to foreign parties without the kremlin's permission while the e.u. insists gas brahm has abused its dominant position russia says brussels is trying to do fear in the energy market to get a gas price discount while i was alexander desire of says the e.u. is only looking out for itself. these looks like to me as. a good protective measure which may war may not work but all other countries will know that russian companies will be supported by russian government in case of painting. flags. abroad. now here's a look at some other stories from around the world for western troops killed in
southern afghanistan by afghan police officers this comes last and twenty four hours after two british soldiers died in a similar insider shooting so far this year fifty one foreign soldiers have been killed by their perceived allies in the so-called green on blue attacks two other marines were shot down a u.s. base were u.k.'s prince harry is stationed the taliban said that attack was in response to the anti muslim film made in the u.s. . fifteen people are data after a roadside bomb exploded in northwest pakistan near the border with afghanistan twelve others were wounded when their boss was hit by the blast as believe the bomb was planted in a dirt road and the detonated by remote control though it's unclear who set off. protests continue across china as demonstrators voiced frustration over disputed islands with japan there's a heavy police presence outside the japanese consulate in shanghai as hundreds of
