and thank you for joining us you're watching r.t. international with me the key erin. racial tension in the u.s. has been aggravated again a university professor from connected received death threats after a controversial facebook post in it he calls for an end to white supremacies using an expletive laden version of the hash tag let them die while his post was meant as a comment on the recent shooting of a republican congressman that happened happened last week the storm of anger was so intense that the college or thirty's had to temporarily shut down the campus the professor of leave the premises and has since issued a public apology well the latest figures show that hate crime in america is skyrocketing in at least six big u.s. cities this type of crime clocked up a double digit increase last year kind of more pain now looks at the racial ten.
and how it's dividing american society reports of hate crimes have been surging across u.s. headlines in recent months. the rise of racially motivated attacks has been a trend in the united states senate the two thousand and sixteen presidential election new york city has seen a twenty four percent rise in hate crimes with twenty percent across the state cincinnati ohio has seen an increase of thirty eight percent while chicago has seen twenty percent and all of this comes as both the press and politicians have reveled in race when it comes to picking a president ninety percent of the black vote is ninety percent over what black vote trump has stood up in front of largely white audiences and described black communities in such insulting and ignorant terms i love the signs behind me
blacks for trump i like those side one thing he does know is how to get angry white men to vote for him president obama over the weekend delivering a roll ring and deeply personal appeal to black voters at times it seemed like the election was just all about race we heard about minorities who felt threatened by trial and angry white men who voted for him but if you look for such a narrative elsewhere you'd struggle france italy in the netherlands for example don't allow any collecting of statistics based on race or religion and it doesn't play any role in politics so are they right and america wrong we decided to ask people's opinions on the street i think it's a great thing to get but statistics on what people think about and like in different countries that way you can know what type of policies need to be developed i think they're stirring people up to put one against the other and i believe that. assuming someone's economic or social or political standings based on their races that's really. i think it it opens up
a dialogue for people to start talking about what some of those issues might be to have some data down allies so you should get elected statistics or ethnic or religious affiliations has always been used as a kind of path the power in the united states in terms of politics public in the democratic party really capitalize on divisions of all sorts and they use this as a wedge to drive. whatever the arguments or whatever the political agenda is parties are really actively looking for that wedge issue in order to somehow state really to steer the public away from the really common issues which are affecting all aspects of society as with any controversy related to race it's quite apparent that americans don't see eye to eye. party new york.
with fewer than a hundred days to go before the general election in germany chancellor angela merkel has described her country using word starting with the letters from a to z. well in her post no a.b.c. had be words there which means state on me in german broad sound which am is the made in germany plus muslims who are paid part of the e.u. and nato along with the german for mushroom hunting and as is security for israel but also toy railway artie's piece all of a found out where the people in both live said her definition of jimmy. lists that's out a list of words that the chancellor believes it to mice is german this so if you know your article i of the german constitution from your care to him your order from your valise allayed then your props on the same page as angular merkel but we came out onto the streets of berlin and right in front of the bundestag to ask
people here what would they associate with germany if i say germany to you what all the five words you associate with germany the five. bad rushed. out. favorites it's me who did this on time. and. i also think perfect with germany for me to neighbors filmmaking didn't understand mrs merkel the parliament the chancellor rhee the motorway that's also very good in germany still it's leash . pride order punctuality those are only three but those are the most important things we also asked them exactly what they thought of a glimmer cols least this is part of us as of involved oh yeah as broad as i was
it's not bad it's all the volunteer fire department is good freedom of the press sports clothes. broadband but out west ok but no cloudy whoops. we are proud nation we don't identify ourselves with the german army the federal union democracy but we do identify ourselves with the rest of the words. ok being german army is ok sport for the handicapped ok tough questions are we ready to face them muslims are welcome as long as. the freedom of the press i am really one thousand percent for that matter what happened partners in the e.u. or nato yes trains those are wonderful ultimately this is a list of what angle merkel thinks makes germany great and it comes out three months before there's an election here and which german voters will decide whether they want to keep her as their leader angle or merkel's determined to show that
german values a tie did with her own peter all of. what inspired by the german chancellor as a.b.c. of all things german we decided to come up with our own alphabet of all things merkel. but is buying among friends is not acceptable. i'm going to say thank you thank you for a good record you intensify the operation in. qatar has lashed out at fellow gold states over what it sees as an attempt to limit its sovereignty on foreign policy after they presented doha which they accuse of
sponsoring terrorism with a list of demands the countries recently cut diplomatic and trade ties with the shakedown and so the demands must be met if we're nations are to be restored well on middle east correspondent paula. todd has been presented with a list of demands from saudi arabia the united arab emirates but wade and egypt for nations that qatar or trade and diplomatic ties with the country now this came after the u.s. state department questioned the motives of the gulf states now that it's been more than two weeks since the embargo started we are mystified that the gulf states have not released to the public nor ari's the details about the claims that they are making toward. the more the time goes by the more doubt is raised about the actions taken by saudi arabia and the us. at this point we are left with one simple question were the actions really about their concerns regarding carter's alleged support for terrorism or the about the long simmering grievances between and among
the g.c.c. countries now the next day the us secretary of state breaks to listen issued a statement saying that a list of such demands has been prepared he added that he hoped that the demands would be reasonable and actionable saying that we understand that this list is being prepared it's being coordinated by the saudis the iraq tease each option is and the bahrainis and we hope that it will be presented to qatar with and will be treated as reasonable and actionable now the list includes thirteen demands in total here are some of them first and foremost to curb all diplomatic ties with iran the listed trade and commerce with iran that complies with the u.s. and international sanctions will be permitted now the two states share the biggest natural gas field so that could be a problem as well it calls on shutting down al-jazeera and all qatar funded news outlets to terminate to military presence in qatar to any joint military
cooperation with turkey that is taking place inside of qatar the list says that there needs to be agreement to all demands within ten days or the list becomes invalid now the document does not specify what the countries will do if qatar refuses to comply so of course it remains to be seen whether qatar will view these demands as either reasonable or actionable meanwhile the winds house has weighed in on the spot calling it a family affair that the four states should resolve by themselves. political commentators sigh of must of a cost chesham think the gold states are doing their best to strip count of influence. raise some maximum demands in order to empty their hands of from the merits and winning races that it had made of we wait like its ties with the muslim brotherhood like its ties strong ties with hamas gave
him a say in the middle east peace in the palestinian he's really should also use the strong ties with iran that made it a player a good actor in the region that could play both ways also. they care a lot for al-jazeera network and they know how strong and powerful it is in promoting cathars views so they have raised all these demands in order to empty the hands of the from the willing ace's that it had and made a powerful actor on the southern rooms of the persian gulf. after america's defense secretary admitted u.s. failings in afghanistan last week the pentagon seems to have been looking for somebody to blame and it's found someone in his first report to congress since the election the pentagon named pakistan as the single greatest external factor hindering u.s. actions there are poor refers to what it calls support of afghan insurgents by the
pakistani government during sixteen years of its involvement in afghanistan washington has given a range of reasons why it's outgunned campaign wasn't going to plan. iran is reportedly arming and funding the taleban corruption is a huge challenge in afghanistan that russia is now meddling in afghanistan it's very difficult to succeed on the battlefield when your enemy enjoys external support and safe haven we had the. overt legitimacy led to the taliban by the russians the problem that the us has trying to carry out the occupation and subdue the population and i mean the real answer here is the u.s. has to get out of afghanistan they claim that they would have resolved everything and they would have won the war if only it wasn't for pakistan or only or if it only wasn't for something else but there are always looking because they aren't able to succeed the. problem that they have in
a war that has lasted longer than any other u.s. war in history almost sixteen years now is the fact that the afghan people do not wish to accept occupation. america's attempt to settle the afghan crisis have seen several surprising methods being used in the path. we're not winning in afghanistan right now. going for it. looks like you're on a cruise to the shall see thank you. pentagon pages six million dollars to mail a tire you can go because the a bomb in color now the pentagon doesn't even know where the ghosts are that might have been eat.
any justification for twenty million dollars in afghan firewood when my auditor's asked for documentation of we're basically told quote unquote we don't have the records we just spend the money. the cia has fired some of its work is off today hijacks a vending machine with the last story and this break. the
recent spat between the gulf states has highlighted yet another middle eastern conflict while turkey is siding with qatar on iran again saudi arabia the long running tensions between the sunni's into the open wanted and cry jump into the fray instead of trying to pull the strings from a distance. combat now your love of junk food could cost you your job well at least if you push it to fall that's the lesson to be learned from
a recent scandal that's rocked the cia officer my girlfriend says santiago explains . big new cia contractors gooden still snacks without getting caught the contractors were working for the cia developed a special payment not that they steal thirty thousand more for vending machine junk and we're doing it for about six months until they got busted all in the scheme was quite elaborate going to eat the classified office of the inspector general report they unplug the machines from the net and use special blank prepaid cards to retrieve the snacks for free wow so a cia contractor was annual salary ranges from about sixty thousand to one hundred sixty thousand dollars had the desire to go to such lengths putting their careers on the line all to eat fried junk food at the office the social media couldn't resist.
and the funny thing here is once the perpetrators were caught gave their badges in and were taken to jail the department of justice was not hungry enough for justice and did not press charges perhaps feeling sympathy for starving staff middle class until go r.t. . a christian school in canada is worried about its freedom of religion after being told to stop teaching the us as if the bible they could be deemed
offensive the local authorities say passages in the bible that denigrate all vilify ones section. taishan should not be studied and plus the school disagrees saying the ban would violate his constitutional rights they were thought to tease us standing their ground insisting that the potentially offensive passages should not be a part of the curriculum but we got differing reactions to the issue point of the whole you know you know education system is to have discussions and to be able to say that this is this is text that is that is said here let's discuss it in a open forum i am a religious man who's who's muslim and when i hear things that boat people taking things away from from any type of holy text it does kind of bother me in a way but at the same time there's there's the talk about you know we want to teach our kids how to be inclusive and how to teach your kids to respect different types of races cultures sexualities to the school board used is the word offense they
said you need to get rid of all offensive texts from the bible and stop teaching this and when it comes to that word it can be interpreted in any way i could be offended by the whole bible hence why some people in history burned the entire book because they found the entire thing offensive instead of responding to censorship with more censorship we should respond with more free speech and we should be teaching things about inclusive as well as things about creationism and evolution just bring more education instead of trying to deny the opportunity to understand these texts of the children there's no way that we would be able to have these conversations if things were cut out or if we had herself from things. you're putting you know we want to put gay people back in the closet also putting religion back in the closet as well there's absolutely nothing wrong with challenging these verses and questioning it in fact i find it quite interesting that speaking with the muslim gay man because that is a big question we're dealing with right now you have countries where they have imposed things like shari'a law strict islamic law where gay people are thrown off
right now and we need to talk about that we're not going to be able to do that with . free speech on the issue on both gender issues and religious issues. to reason may's response to the recent terror attacks in britain is widely thought to have damaged her performance in the general election arties going underground speaks to admiral lord west a terrorism expert about the security challenges now facing the u.k. here's some of what he had to say i don't think it is the right way of combating it doesn't mean you don't need some policeman with weapons doesn't need you mean you don't need some sorts of surveillance but i think doing that all man says i see what you don't want it means that all of these various terrorists or various persuasions of one if we come that sort of society and i certainly don't want to live in a country like that one of the things i love about this country is that most of the policeman don't carry weapons that is very unusual.
