militants take the forefront towards protests sweeping the world killing ten more foreigners in afghanistan as revenge for u.s. made film i think it's not. the most of the rising but even in the west we want the some of you on the show the line islamists to step into gear all across europe drumming up rhetoric in the hopes of using the tensions for their own me. also the territorial realm between tokyo and japan escalates softer chinese patrol ship to briefly enter waters around disputed islands which japan considers its own
. right the u.s. and britain lead the largest of a naval exercises off the iranian coast while israel steps up its tough talk from tehran. a very warm welcome to you from all of us here at r.t. moscow i'm wrong recent shape the number of dead over an amateur film deriving islam is now more than fifty just one week since protests began and the latest victims were a dozen people in kabul killed instantly when an afghan suicide bomber rammed a car full of explosives into the many of us. and joining the fray is thailand where rank upon rank of right. police formed
a perimeter outside the u.s. embassy hundreds more protesters marched on the mission waving by those on chanting against america the embassy was put in a state of lockdown the head of the protests and all non-essential staff were sent away for safety. reports on the most violent of recent episodes. more than ten people have died in kabul afghanistan today after a vehicle flammed into a minivan full of aviation workers we know that most of those individuals that were killed in the attack today were foreigners now all of this is happening as a result of an american made movie called the innocence of muslims the group that has taken responsibility for this attack in kabul is known as the party of islam and they're closely tied to the taliban and they believe that there should not be foreign forces in afghanistan if this suicide incident actually happened
a day after there were protests across kabul we've also seen violence increase in pockets than tension between police and pakistani citizens as a result of this video has led to at least two people being killed me soft tens of thousands of people protesting in lebanon the leader of hezbollah has asked for the people of his country to lead a week long protest as a result of this video which he believes has been the strongest attack against islam that he has ever seen. well of the protests have been spreading springing up in more than thirty countries in just one week has them out for you the violent episodes have been on the rise of militants and terrorists seeking to capitalize on the anger and more large scale demonstrations are now planned in iran and lebanon mohammed mom of the washington d.c. islamic center he says a much of the anger fueling the protests was there long
before the film appeared. this is actually a demonstration of the pent up feelings that the muslims have throughout all of these years harbored against very hostile american policies to all the muslim world and i think for anyone who is taking a very close look at it would realize that this is only the tip of the iceberg it should become a very instructive lesson for us diplomats and officials to gauge the depth and the range of wrath and rage that the most seems have across the world towards the united states policies and i don't think we could refer to any one policy that is positive constructive and progressive emanating from washington towards anywhere in the mostly in realm that includes the whole of countries extending from indonesia
to morocco there's not one example that the united states can demonstrate in as far as goodwill towards the muslims. and with passion burning strong across the religious divide it has no shortage of proper profiteer especially in europe nationalist a far right german group says it wants to stage a screening of the film that began it all in lynn and that is it is laura smith reports of something to worry the year. 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 minutes names were arrested to protest and. it's no longer about turning down u.s. embassies in muslim countries in europe that calling the holy war. nandan so similar to see 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 this move scale of european protest compared to those in the middle east but they say local islamists are using this to recruit new members a worrying sign. as i say mainstream extremist groups looking to exploit this in order to encourage men to come and join them and try to get into a habit of protest. extremists demonstrations and that's always where it's be concerned about and it's already prompted a backlash as u.s. embassies all over europe come under siege from angry muslims a fellow right islamophobia group in germany says it wants to place on a screening of the film the innocence of muslims the preyed on citizens movement
say it's a question of art and freedom of expression but germany's interior ministry has accused them of recklessly whoring oil on the fire it's a fire the 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 strawman. people hate the american allies and i think this is a turning point for the process was sparked by the film but they've taken on a wider dimension they're also about foreign policy of america and its allies the fact of matter is the american feel responsibility was in place they had troops inside lease the. land and. unfortunately. started as a conflict between east and west threatens to become a domestic struggle inside europe laura smith r.t.
. well you can always a see the full timeline a while as past and present coverage of the global rallies on our website or you can also read about a u.s. intelligence report warning that the american embassy in cairo is an active target all that much more at r.t. talk come. watching r.t. live from moscow at least three chinese patrol vessels briefly enter the waters around disputed islands that japan considers its own but tensions between the two countries escalated after tokyo bought the territories from private investors
bypassing china a political analyst from hong kong eustache university professor joseph chang and believes a beijing is sending japan a very clear sign it is basically a show that you ought to zone the whole certainly would like to demonstrate on of the citizens that is long since china pays considerable anger out of the chinese people with what they see as a kind of dirty trade a kind of pocket because it's one of the biggest government two thirds phase of the islands from the owner all the time these government and it's a nice people. they have to respond and to respond strongly certainly in restraints of kind of rising nationalisms in both countries.
well if a japanese businesses billions of dollars are at stake of the alfredo's protesters in beijing literally smash their shops along with their plans for a short time prosperity of the country has been plagued by anti tokyo sentiment steven clemons of the atlantic magazine believes the whole situation is a snapshot of the future relationship between the countries. when we had both sides doing its probing weaknesses of the other china feels that it's due more respect than it's using issues like the island issue or using. some skirmishes over japan just having to place another ballistic missile defense system is essentially to power squaring off and while it 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 intense 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. on a monday the u.s. defense secretary leon panetta sealed an anti missile defense deal with japan's leaders who decided to accept a second radar system on their territory after the two countries claim it is aimed at deterring possible north korean aggression but again you're a co-founder of space for peace thought oh gee says the world shouldn't buy this excuse. clearly the us. he the tensions in the east of the greed of the. just the first year has announced the who was one of the military. of the. sixty percent of its military forces. it's not the. north korea surround north korea it's about china clearly. the united states is
intending to jack up the arms race and the same type of must be said the u.s. is also doing the same thing to russia expanding missile defense throughout the throughout europe and into central asia and clearly the u.s. is looking for trouble now so. it's good to have a company today this is coming up in just a few minutes full of steam one year on occupy wall street markets anniversary with massive action in new york hundreds of arrests serving to attract more attention to the activists of course. now a huge naval war games are underway in the persian gulf though the water is on flying middle eastern flags but those of britain the u.s. and their allies the drill is happening right near the strait of hormuz softer coast of iran as reports pour in that israel is preparing a military strike against it. further explains today that seems likely.
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. israel is preparing to launch a preemptive strike against iran's alleged cave 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 aver a preemptive strike on iran that now he's reported to have told friends that he was
fired in that research for to allow that he 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. or out of more of this we're now joined by author and middle east expert tariq ali joining us live from london good to see you today i'm sure you were listening to our correspondent sara for us in her report i think the main question simply is for you is this a drill or is it something else along for the last five or six years now groups been. during. the sanctions. turks. and women leaders released normally decide to carry out a military. forehand i mean this was the case when they destroyed the new career.
in iraq so where the this is still a rocket grow chillingly all something more serious remains to be seen certainly the temperature in jerusalem is high nature of the animal and his foreign minister have been preventing iran going to seriously for the last four months and the west of course has let them get away with it i mean just imagine if any other country were threatening another sovereign state there would be some he wouldn't cry in international quarters monnin look is simply a stroke so the very notion that israel has the right to invade another country because it has nuclear weapons when israeli israel itself is a nuclear but is slightly grotesque and i mean as we heard as we had a couple of weeks ago or so i'm sorry to interrupt but netanyahu was a voice in his grievances to one u.s. congressman on capitol hill saying that quote unquote he without is
a wit's end when it comes to his time to invade iran and also to get the support of the united states but here we have american warships british warships other allies or military hardware there on the gulf and a very very sensitive region what is the point i mean you talk about rattle saber rattling which surely there must be more to it than that. obviously what they are up to is trying to show is true that they are serious and the determined to act if iran gets nuclear weapons but netanyahu being. send is not something new he in various members of his cabinet are at their wits a low number of questions good evening is is washington and its vassals states in europe going to back in is really on iran without washington's green light there's a place because american interests a very directly involved in the entire region so if an attack is typically a suit will long be needed to know it will be the united states giving him the
green light and. that will open. in the region as the uranium so be warning of course of course you talk about opening up a hornet's nest and also you suggest to israel will not strike iran without without washington's approval and perhaps washington's participation but as you know we've got out of the presidential campaigning going on in the us of a right now one might imagine that both obama and romney want to keep their hands clean if we can just take our attention from from tel aviv and from washington now to london where rumors are surrounding the sacking of the u.k. armed forces minister imply the u.k. could be gearing up for war however there are also reports that britain's spy chief has visited tel of eve trying to dissuade israelis from military action of what is the british government to. to give the british government credit for being an independent and sovereign state he is going to far bay is nothing the british
will do with the permission of the state department or the pentagon totally tried into american foreign and defense policies this country has not taken an independent position on anything over the last decade or so to me since the fracture of blair period and they're continuing i mean so you know i am always a bit surprised when people ask questions of britain which imply that britain is an independent body it is not what it does it does only with the permission of the united states and to have the united states so if they are trying to intervene to delay these really trying to stop it one can assume that that is also a look at social washington that we've certainly heard some officials out of out of tehran saying if indeed israel were to strike iran tehran would retaliate in ways unexpected and unforeseen d.t. by that if he did you would be talking about here well i do buy that and that has always been the position of terror in the rain to are literally being attacked what
they are effectively saying is that the united states is involved in a number of concretes in the number of cases the iranians have either been neutral or if even the green light to american advances as they did in iraq from the toppling of saddam hussein as they did in afghanistan for us stopping the taliban they are basically saying that the going to open up new fronts in a. big open up new products in the front years of iraq and they couldn't under leash hezbollah on in storage so it will not be simply an air war it will be award that they will fight on preorder. different from so in the united states are aware of this know what will be or any use of blue during that is a matter but they are seriously considering of that should not be doubted all right
eric only author and middle east expert joining us live from london a pleasure to have you on the program today thank you thank you. there's always a much more on our website our two dot com here's something of what you can find there right now the latest in the cyber warfare web security researchers believe the u.s. has created a whole series of computer super viruses in the wake of the worm that hit iranian systems in two thousand and turning. health over security find out why a controversial full body scanners have to be banned from e.u. web boards and much more lined up for you at our two dot com. so twenty minutes past the hour here in moscow this is r.t. nearly two hundred occupy wall street protesters were arrested in new york as they
marked the movement's one year anniversary peaceful and corporate activists flooded the streets trying to block the entrance to the stock exchange however police as usual resorted to using force as artie's more important i witnessed the day began with hundreds of optimus and their supporters storming. some attempting to block the entrance of the new york stock exchange now they are trapped we saw many clashes between new york city police departments to miss that we're walking through lower men chanting we are the ninety nine percent pioneering a message that. months ago a message that started in new york city and nationwide and ultimately global but the most important thing to note. on monday when these optimists gather together for the one year anniversary of his that they are still very much committed to their fight against income inequality against corporate influence on
us politics but what also for me 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 which are like a mushroom as we could you know to show people that we still ron and that the measure is just in the same way you know there is still a lot of economic inequality in this country and the corporations are running away with power you know with the political game such genealogist because you don't see those here every day doesn't mean they were 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 of criticize this movement as not growing beyond civil disobedience are chanting or 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 interesting to see how and if this event this movement has any impact on the us presidential election that is just seven weeks away the activists i spoke with for all monday 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 on behalf of ninety nine percent of the country reporting from new york bring up or not party. u.s. marine veteran jail says the occupiers are highlighting the persistent pains continuing to plague the u.s. . truly has been
a phenomenal success and shift in the national conversation to focus on the national mall incidents committed against this country you know there's this solution between corporations and politicians the war said and occupy wall street just reminding people that the main problems that the testing about a year ago has gotten worse now than the bags. got sold out is eight hundred science and patrick the detection. of the problem the meat problem happening just hungry. interest somebody is not held at people not so you want to give and soldiers. the sions got bail and all the rest of us gives me extreme klezmer just say the birth date on wall street. or less across that i thought his identity a bushel daniel good to see you today i read you very well you are very good you've
got your finger on the pulse what's going on over there while the still a seven point six percent it's been about we've talked about it yesterday it's happening tomorrow it's been twenty oversubscribed lows damone from european investors one expect told us the timing is right. the risk of the tide for the financial sector is getting really strong and russia specifically scapa dieties is improving so basically we think it's a great time and i think it's very bank is going to be the first one of the russian companies that are planned to appear to i.p.o.'s in the near future and i think burbank is going to set a good standard it could have plays the itself three three to eight percent higher i think it's very isn't a one smart to give investors some room to for a pretty shape. let's check mark is because until thursday protest at the weekend in europe is still weighing on e.u. stock markets here in moscow a second day of losses really tracking those falls in europe let's get those
