now as the movie continues to whip up rage across the muslim world lebanon has seen one of the largest demonstrations so far tens of thousands vented their anger after the leader of the shia movement has bar called for more protests saying the u.s. must be held accountable more mass demos are expected to fill the streets of lebanon on tuesday and throughout the week lucy coffin of reports from the capital beirut. thousands of people have turned out to protest the controversial film that is said to have offended the prophet mohammad after the head of the shiites in the militant group hezbollah had multiplied his supporters to take to the streets and protests the mood has been largely calm largely peaceful but again what so many people out on the street these kinds of events can take on a course of their own now while this is just one of the rallies that's scheduled in the lebanon we know that has on the problem has called for additional rallies to take place throughout the week as you can see there are families people who have
gathered here to express their frustration of what this movie is some of the chance that we have heard a word death to israel america is the greatest of double we also heard some speeches where the speaker had insinuated that they have to this group has to focus on the true enemy and sitting waiting that israel is behind the push for these kinds of so-called. film only you don't blame american people an american mission whether it's buddhism what is presented you with theirs is whatever it is we should listen to the most jews are always as whatever you the just which should be there of course this movie was produced in the u.s. the u.s. government has also criticized it but we've seen the very violent reaction resonating across the muslim world and while we're here in lebanon this is just one of the protests that has really taken place in a week more than a week now of anti-american violence protests in some countries that have been
protests in yemen in tunisia in cairo. in sudan and all across the globe and on monday in pakistan at least one person was killed in violence clashes in afghanistan there have been a protest as well as well as in jakarta we really do have to keep watching to see how events play out you see coughing up for our team beirut lebanon on. the anti-american rallies started exactly a week ago and have rapidly spread to countries and. continents including europe were some muslims are calling for a holy war amid the flames and fury a german far right group is planning to stage a screening of the film and land searches laura smith reports the unrest could trigger the own storm which has been brewing for years. it started in the middle east. but now the protests against a film a slim say it's an insult to islam have spread and they've arrived in europe. at least one hundred twenty muslims were arrested at
a protest in. it's no longer about burning down u.s. embassies in muslim countries in europe they're calling for holy war. london saw similar scenes demonstrators outside the u.s. embassy following friday prayers and up to a thousand again on sunday tempers flared and flags were burnt. out of this point out the small scale of european protests compared to those in the middle east but they say local islamists are using this to recruit new members a worrying sign. as a say mainstream extremists who want to a better word groups are looking to exploit this in order to encourage the young men to come and join them and try and get into a habit of protest the habits of extremists and demonstrations and that's always an area to be concerned about and it's already prompted a backlash as u.s.
embassies all over europe come under siege from angry muslims a phone right islamophobia group in germany says it wants to post on a screening of the controversial film the innocence of muslims the pro-choice line citizens movement say it's a question of arts and freedom of expression but germany's interior ministry has accused them of recklessly pouring oil. well on the fire it's a fire that radical muslims in the u.k. are all too happy to fan the flames of the muslims are rising already very stupid even in the west we want to sit on the rule of the sharia people hate the americans are the hideout lies and i think this is a very good turning point for the recent process was sparked by the film but they've taken on a why did i mention that also about foreign policy of america and its allies the fact of matter is the americans behind the foreign responsibility i was second place they had troops inside the police that killed most of the occupied lands and
i thought it was a sad life unfortunately it's only for himself to blame i was started as a conflict between east and west threatens to become a domestic struggle inside europe laura smith. author and historian gerald horan doubts the us will change its policies in muslim countries but thinks the strategy has mainly to even more violence well first of all you have to recognise the united states historically has been the headquarters of islamophobia there's no question there in lebanon be particular that there is dissatisfaction with us policy moves and guard israel with regard to the palestinian refugee question so yes there is dissatisfaction you know weight in the minds of the nation at the same time there is dissatisfaction with the general level is it for as long as phobia in the states and washington has the guy now beyond the rhetoric of washington has to show much more outrage against the videos and films that are
designed to explain passion as such i have to be very because a mistake in the structure in the long term with regard to united states changing its policies towards a very sensitive. now i'm going to r.t. dot com for more on the anti-american global rallies including reports that u.s. intelligence has been warned that the country's embassy in cairo could face further attacks. a major international armada of naval power has massed off the iranian coast for what's believed to be the biggest military exercise ever seen in the region the american am british led show of force near the strategic strait of hormuz comes as
israel has ramped up its warmongering rhetoric against iran and as sara furthur explains there are further indications that a showdown with iran may be on the cards. britain is one of twenty five countries taking part in a twelve day exercise in the strait of hormuz and the largest wargames ever undertaken in the region now this comes as fears grow that israel is preparing to launch a preemptive strike against iran's alleged nuclear weapons program now israeli prime minister netanyahu has said that iran's six to seven months away from having ninety percent of what it would need to create an atomic bomb not these are claims that iran vehemently denies and they've also warned that they will retaliate across the region were they to come under attack now here in britain at the same time the former liberal democratic defense minister nick harvey has claimed that he was fired in the recent cabinet reshuffle to avoid a damaging coalition split over
a preemptive strike on iran that now he's reported to have told friends that he was fired in that reshuffle to allow the deputy prime minister to sign up to an israeli u.s. preemptive strike and his criticisms of israel's actions could prove embarrassing for the coalition will this comes on the back of continued concerns here that these war games and the recent statements are all signs that israel and iran edging ever closer to the brink of war. you know what an argument from moscow coming up in just a few minutes territorial tensions just can't seal the new anti-missile rater deal with washington as a dispute over islands also claimed by china simmers in the background. and a d.n.a. probe of a condom claimed to have been used by join us makes the case against the we can accept it or look at our more shaky.

nearly two hundred occupy wall street protesters have been arrested in new york as they marked the movement's one year anniversary police wrestled manny peaceful activists to the ground as they flew out of manhattan's financial district in the hope of blocking the entrance to the new york stock exchange are not has more. the day began with hundreds of optimus and their supporters storming through lower manhattan some attempting to block the entrance of the new york stock exchange so after the day progressed we saw many clashes between the new york city police department and activists that were walking through lower manhattan chanting we are the ninety nine percent and pioneering a message that began twelve months ago a message that started in new york city and then to you but nationwide and ultimately global but the most important thing to note on monday when these optimists gather together for the one year anniversary is that they are still very
much committed to their fight against income inequality against corporate influence on us politics but what also remains was the heavy handed tactics used by the n.y.p.d. against optimus some participating in civil disobedience on many occasions we saw that might be pushing optimus to the ground a lot of us feel disillusioned and kind of put down like we can't there's nowhere to go and there's no recourse that isn't violent you know they're the violent ones they're putting us in a position of violence and they're acting violently against us but rather like a. disruption as we could you know to show people that we're still ron and that the measures just in the same way you know they are still a lot of economic inequality in this country and the corporations are running away . you know with the political game such genealogist because you don't see us here every day doesn't mean that we're not here it's actually something that gives me a lot of hope personally and something that makes me feel hopeful for the future to
see all these people involved and everybody down here now all some have criticized this movement as not going beyond civil disobedience are chanting for yelling still very clear that the frustrations that ignited this movement are still very much alive where it will go from here only time will tell but it will be in. misting to see how and if this event this movement has any impact on the u.s. presidential election that is just seven weeks away the activists i spoke with throughout my day say they are committed committed to this movement and will be doing everything they can even if it means to civil disobedience to cause a change in their system that they believe does not have on behalf of ninety nine percent of the country reporting from new york. r.t. and i worked as and u.s. marine veteran as the occupy movements message paints
a true picture of america's financial inequality. and what truly has been a phenomenal success and a shift in the national of our station to focus on the national mall the sense committed against this country you know there is this collusion between corporations and politicians. and occupy wall street catch reminding people that the main problems that they were protesting about a year ago has gotten worse now just as the leader of the federal reserve has announced q four era you know so the closure of the united states by well connected interests and is still ongoing the chance to back up there and now and we got sold out is its own science and infection there's a of the problem the meeting on happening in this country in the insurance companies not held out sick people now sold out in a war profiteers got there and the soldiers just sold out. and all the rest of
us. extreme pleasure to say. they occupy wall street now you're in and so going strong and here's another year are. actually heading into the system. now former u.s. governor jesse ventura has some advice for occupy activists as he lays out his agenda for a possible presidential run and twenty six team and here's a preview of what's to come next hour here and. they need to continue to stay apart they need to continue to get arrested they need to continue to be vigilant how do you think we stop the vietnam war to me the turning point of the vietnam war many people say it was the sixty eight ted offensive that was huge but i don't believe that was the real turning point for america i believe the turning point of the vietnam war was when the four students were killed that can state i hate to say it
but it's going to require something of that magnitude for the wall street movement to truly have an impact and get to the psyche of mainstream america. japan's largest corporations have had to put their operations on hold in china due to fears and a japanese protest triggered by a territorial tat a tat. they seem has slammed tokyo for buying disputed islands from a private owner while the last and around afraid with plans to build a second anti-missile radar on japanese soil still no crime is from the atlantic magazine believes countries are now testing the water before making bigger moves in the future. what we have both sides doing is probing weaknesses of the other china feels that it's due more respect and it's using issues like the islands issue or using. some skirmishes over japan just having consented to place another ballistic
missile defense system has essentially two powers squaring off and while this looks like china japan and there are certainly deep historical grievances this is really about china testing the united states and its alliance with japan and to some degree i expect these kind of skirmishes to continue for a long time be the it's games of brinksmanship it will continue to look tense and tense and dense and then you'll have moments of relaxation so what we're seeing today is a snapshot of what we're going to see for the next decade or more they say that that is not designed to essentially confront china but it's also designed to said in a signal that asia and the asian century and economics and commerce in the region and the growth of china matter and that the united states is not going to withdraw from that region so it's trying to sell the point that its strategic footprint in asia will remain where it is if not grow larger while at the same time you know these wars that we've been having in the middle east will shrink by that but to be just bottom line is we don't know whether the rise of china is going to lead to conflict
between the united states and china and its allies or whether it will be managed and so we'll have both cooperation and confrontation that are essentially managed we don't have a hot war but but this translates just like it used to be in the cold war with the soviets and the united states were oftentimes the way to achieve peace is the way to achieve deterrent is through deterrence and through a stronger posture and i think that's a day but debatable view but that's at least the way japan and china are positioning themselves today. now we have plenty more stories for you here is a look at what he can find right now to tell the world security find out why the controversial full body scanners are to be banned from airports. and the super rich are getting richer but the only slightly return getting for a read about why the wealth gap between the worlds of millionaires and billionaires is getting wider had to argue dot com for the full story.
