hey hey hey. militants take the forefront of islamic protests sweeping the world killing more foreigners in afghanistan. u.s. made film mocking islam. plus. the muslims are rising even in the west we want to see someone who want to show you. step in across europe drumming up rhetoric in the hopes of using the tensions for their own me it's. also the territory between tokyo and beijing escalates the chinese patrol ship briefly into the waters around the disputed islands which japan considers its own. and the u.s.
and britain will lead the largest naval exercises off the iranian coast while israel steps up its top. it's a pleasure to have you with us today here on our. live in moscow the number of dead over an hour much of film deriding islam is now more than fifty just one week since the protests began the latest victims were a dozen people income pool killed instantly when an afghan suicide bomber rammed a car full of explosives into their money. and joining the fray this time. where rank upon rank of riot police formed
a perimeter outside the u.s. embassy hundreds more protesters marched on the mission waving banners and chanting against. america the embassy was put on lockdown ahead of the protests and all non-essential staff were sent away for safety policies appreciated now reports on the most violent of recent episodes more than ten people have died in kabul afghanistan today after a vehicle slammed into a minivan full of aviation workers we know that most of those individuals that work 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. the protests have been spreading a lot of them up right here springing up in more than thirty countries in just one week and violent episodes have been on the rise as well with minutes and sun terrorists seeking to capitalize on the anger more large scale demonstrations are now being planned in iran and lebanon a former deputy speaker of the belgian parliament load of news told r.t. the decades of hard life of people with a lot of pent up anger. the thing is if we just look at did this so called spark
for these revolts this does i mean this is it it's far more than that these are people most of these protesters are people without a job without any economical perspective having seen the humiliation of having lived under dictatorships mostly supported by the u.s. by britain by the european union for decades and basically what it is is this is this is an expression of anger of humiliation of frustration that this anger is always there this is always happen whenever there is revolt on over the protests people will use that as a as a vehicle for their own agenda that's and it's perfectly clear that what is going home is partly anger and frustration of many people and i'm saying time this is being used by extremist movements that's absolutely clear and this is also what happens even in unquote when you do not consider the deeper frustration most of these kids that you saw on the street or jobless didn't don't have proper diplomas
setter as long as we're in the long term we do not look at these deeper causes these things will reoccur in europe and elsewhere. well with passion burning strong across the religious divide no shortage of provocateurs especially in europe a nationalist a far right german group in berlin says it wants to stage a screening of the film that began it all as artist laura smith reports as something to worry the year. it started in the middle east. but now the protests against her film are 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 the holy war. london saw similar demonstrators outside the u.s.
embassy for. friday prayers and up to a thousand again on sunday tempers flared and flags were burnt. analysts 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 i say mainstream extremists want to a better word groups are looking to exploit this in order to encourage young men to come and join them and try to get into a happens to protest. extremists demonstrations and that's always there 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 phone right islamophobia group in germany says it wants to place on a screening of the film the innocence of muslims the pro-choice line citizens
movement say it's a question of art and freedom of expression but germany's interior ministry has accused them of recklessly pouring 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 start with. the american allies and i think this is a very good turning point for the process was sparked by the film but they've taken on a wider dimension also about foreign policy of america and it allies the fact of matter is the americans feel responsibility in place they had troops inside lease of. land and life unfortunately. started as a conflict between east and west threatens to become a domestic struggle inside europe laura smith r.t.
. and you can always i see the full time line as well as past and present coverage of the global rallies on our website you can also read about a u.s. intelligence report warning that the american embassy in cairo is still an active target all that and much more at r.t. talk. live from moscow this is r.t. at least three chinese patrol vessels briefly entered waters around disputed islands that japan considers its own the tensions between the two countries escalated after tokyo bought the territories from private investors bypassing china
political analyst from hong kong professor joseph chang things beijing is sending japan a very clear message. it is basically a. bowl certainly with light to demonstrate on of the citizens. long to china days considerable anger in and out of the chinese people with what they see as a kind of dirty trade a kind of. under the japanese government who could squeeze the islands from the owner of the chinese government and it's kind these people believe that they have to respond and to respond strongly certainly in the threats of kind of rising nationalisms in both countries. well for japanese businesses billions of dollars are at stake after outraged protesters in beijing literally smash their
shops along with their plans for any short term prosperity of the country is being plagued by anto your sentiment stephen clemence from the atlantic magazine believes the whole situation is just a snapshot of the future of nation ship between both countries so. what we have both sides doing is probing weaknesses of the other china feels that it's do more respect and it's using issues like the island issue or using. some stream issues over japan just having consented to place another ballistic missile defense system is essentially to power squaring off and while this looks like china japan and there 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 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 monday the
u.s. defense secretary leon panetta sealed an anti missile defense deal with japan's leaders . we decided to accept a second system on their territory the two countries claim it's aimed at deterring possible north korean aggression but bruce daniel the co-founder of space for peace thought old says the world should not be buying that it's. clearly the u.s. and japan are working the herd to heat up tensions in the east pacific region. just in the past year is announced is. one of the military policy into the asia pacific where the pentagon will move sixty percent of its military forces into this region if it's not too worried about your career to surround north korea it's about surrounding china clearly the united states is intending to jack up the arms race in at the same time it must be said the u.s.
is also doing the same thing to russia expanding missile defense throughout the. throughout europe and into into central asia and clearly the u.s. is looking for trouble now to. order still to come in just a few minutes here on our team full of steam one. occupy wall street market anniversary with a massive action in new york and nearly two hundred arrests so to attract more attention to the activists call us. and ask your flyers voice their anger ahead of the u.s. presidential election we look at which candidate will listen analysis on the way. now huge naval war games are underway in the potion gulf the water was not flying the flags of the middle east rather those of britain the u.s. and their allies the drill is happening in the strait of hormuz right off the coast of iran as reports poor in that israel is preparing a military strike against it. explains today that seems more likely than.
britain is one of twenty five countries taking part in a twelve day exercise in the strait of hormuz in 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 cave or nuclear weapons program that 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 region for to allow the deputy prime minister says 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. and off the middle east expert tariq ali believes that israel will never be able to strike iran if it isn't backed by the western powers. netanyahu being sweet scent is not something new he and various members of his cabinet are at their wit's same a low number of questions but the feeling is is washington and its vassal state soon europe going to back an israeli attack on iran without washington's green light this attack cannot take place because american interests are very directly
involved in the entire region so if an attack is to take place it will long be know to know it will be the united states giving him the green light certainly will be temperature in jerusalem is high in nature neanderthal and his foreign minister have been threatening iran quite 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 waters not in with a severe stroke so the very notion that israel has the right to invade another country because it has nuclear weapons when israeli israel itself is the nuclear but is slightly grotesque so what are so much more on our website r.t. dot com here's something of what you can find there right now for this hour of the latest in cyber warfare web security researchers believe the us has created
a whole series of computer super viruses in the wake of the worm but in iranian systems in two thousand and ten. health over security to find out why controversial full body scanners are to be banned from e.u. airports that and a lot more darty talk. it is good to have you with us here in oz who today nearly two hundred occupy wall street protesters were arrested in new york as they mock the movement's one year anniversary peaceful and corporate activists flooded the streets trying to block the entrance to the stock exchange but police resorted to using force in a port i was that a witness. 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 to take progress we saw many clashes between new york city police departments and activists that were walking through lower manhattan chanting we are the ninety nine percent and pioneering a message that began months ago a message that started in new york city and then you might nationwide and ultimately global but the most important thing to know on monday when these activists gather together for the one year anniversary is that they are still very much committed to their fights against income inequality against corporate influence on us politics but what also remain what the heavy handed tactics used by the n.y.p.d. against optimus some participating in civil disobedience on many occasions we saw that my p.t. 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 the position of violence and they're acting violently against us which i don't like. much disruption as we could you know to show people that we still run in that the measures just do the same they're you know they still a lot of economic inequality in this country and the corporations are running away . you know with the political game such knowledge is 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. sure to see all these people involved and everybody down here now all summer criticize this as not going 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 u.s.
presidential election that is just seven weeks away the activists i spoke with throughout 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. party. and he walked out a u.s. marine veteran in jail says the occupiers are just highlighting the persistent pains plaguing the u.s. . the occupy wall street movement has been a phenomenal success and a shift in the national for station to focus on the financial off the sins committed against this country you know there is this collusion between corporations and politicians are set and occupy wall street has reminded people that the main problems that they were protesting about
a year ago passed gotten worse map chance the backs. got sold out is easy to insights and accurate picture and there's a of the problem meeting on happening in this country. and stressed some of these. people that sold out in a war profiteers got bailed out and soldiers got sold out. and all the rest of us it gives me extreme pleasure to say happy birthday on wall street. former u.s. governor jesse ventura believes that getting arrested at the protests is a viable tactic to make america pay attention to the ongoing occupy movement in approximately twelve minutes time he lays out his plans for a possible presidential run in two thousand and sixteen that's an exclusive interview. 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 stopped the vietnam war and 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 album impact and get to the psyche of mainstream america. and renew the occupy protests come weeks before the presidential election in the united states activists want change however barack obama's term did not live up to its promises mitt romney is not paying enough attention to his electorate and that's the view of jeffrey summers a from the university of wisconsin milwaukee. obama just by inclination and
personality does not seem to be that interested in taking on in powerful entrenched interests he seems to see himself as potentially being the great conciliator the person who can bring together different interests and i think we're at a time in our history where the country is very divided so i think he's misread his world in history and consequently he has not introduced that much change well in terms of actually winning the election i think the republican strategy has been to kind of juice up again this frustration and anger that resides with the american people and i don't think romney is saying much success i don't think that's resonating enough to actually win the election in fact in the american press today they just released a video clip in which he said that forty seven percent of the electorate he's not even interested in he calls them the moochers and these are people who were attending a fifty thousand dollars plate fund raiser so you know i think ultimately his prospects are one of the elections are rather small i think obama's. chief strategy in terms of winning is just presenting himself as not romney at this point so he
can actually not perform all that well and yet still win the election. hard business card with all these down your bush will do tell us a daniel bit about a big demand to be buying a spare bank stocks that's right. some more has been twice oversubscribed with particular interest from european investors. right. the risk of the ties 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 bankers are going to be the first one out of the russian companies that plan to appear to i.p.o.'s below in the near future and i think the bank is going to sarah a good standard they could have plays the itself three three to eight percent higher i think it's fair reasonable and smart to give investors some room to for appreciation. to my shares of go on the my six offer fully quite heavily yesterday
here in moscow. all slightly lower for the day in line with that federal express just said. wall street is down in the opening minutes as you can see the down just just slightly down the nose that point one percent and then to austerity protests at the weekend in europe all still worrying e.u. investors spain and italy which saw some of those protests all the worst performing in europe this hour on the currency as the euro is sliding to the greenback as spain holds off on asking for a bailout from brussels for now i'm writing off ninety percent of north korea's eleven billion dollars that most of which dates back to soviet times in return gets to invest in north korean energy health care and education bush is also interested in building a gas pipeline to energy hungry south korea for the north however the multi-billion dollar projects unlikely to take off all the north and south all still officially
