i i. disturbing video of. the helmets rescue allegedly disposing of the bodies of beheaded syrian soldiers. american professor receives death threats over a facebook post. the latest example of boiling racial tensions in the united states . is clearly portugal. and mexico want to know if. will the host qualify join us in a few moments with the latest from the confederation.
hello live from moscow what's your team's national with me then you hold him tonight welcome to the program video has emerged online from syria showing a member of the what helmets rescue group allegedly handling the decapitated bodies of syrian soldiers warning you might find the following video disturbing a man can be seen wearing a t. shirt with the logo apparently moving the bodies into a skip the rescue group. over its actions of spot controversy before reports. well since this graphic video was posted on twitter people online have been outraged by it and in fact i believe we can now show you the video a blurred version of it once again so it was reportedly filmed in the southern syrian province of the rock and in this video we properly see a man wearing a t. shirt with that white helmets logo and he's apparently helping a group of people remove a number of bodies off of the truck and judging on the uniforms on these bodies well they're most likely either syrian soldiers or pro-government fighters and in
fact at the end of the video what we see is this man with a white helmets t. shirt holding a syrian flag that was pulled out from the bodies but since this video has emerged while the white helmets has distanced themselves from this incident confirming that this man although he was a white helmets member but he's since been fired because he's violated the code of conduct of the group referring specifically to this video that was posted well they say the man was acting independently and not in the capacity as a white helmets member but despite the ongoing criticism on white helmet the western mainstream media has been praising the white helmets as heroes and film documented they were actually won an oscar earlier this year here's a sample to be nominated for a nobel peace prize one of the subject of a new documentary on netflix. also known as the syria's civil defense are a group of volunteers who were the first to arrive at the scene of an asteroid when the bombs fall a small group of volunteers called the white house minutes run into a smoldering rubble and rescue trapped victims.
there why. it's a. wait and the reality of syria and what these mainstream media reports often omit is the fact that white house has happened before repeatedly. to a terrorist group operating in syria and this latest video on twitter certainly is far from the only incident that the white house has been criticized him. right. so as you can see this video really is just the latest in
a string of constructor see surrounding the white helmet script of journalist vanessa beatty use cover the syrian crisis on the ground multiple times throughout the conflict as the video once again demonstrates the group's questionable ethics this is not the first time that we've seen the way home it's being videoed participating and various atrocities in syria going back as far as two thousand and fifteen and the only reason that the white helmet again put out a statement is of course because they've been caught out now let's just examine that it's incident it took place and it was an attack on the syrian arab army defending an ad based on the old to damascus highway not all of that was there an arab army soldiers according to my sources on the grounds were killed during the attack so they were not all killed in action many of the syrian arab army soldiers were murdered were slaughtered as prisoners of war their bodies were then clearly
dismembered and mutilated and they swiped helmet operates we've seen clambering over the bodies of the syrian arab army soldiers this is not the first time that this is being seen and has been for you to grow up and has been questioned as regards their moral and their their ethics. now in neighboring iraq suicide bombers have killed at least three people in mosul shopping district area was recaptured from muscle several months ago the country's prime minister said the total obliteration of the city will come within days for the moment though heavy fighting there affecting thousands of civilians who remain trapped. he was a. good son you know.
like obviously i wasn't. going to be. going to join and. join up god i really. couldn't do it. i mean while following reports of vice a leader abu bakr old like that is possible when ation by a russian airstrike experts have been speculating over who could replace him if his that is confirmed like al baghdadi who has a religious background the two main contenders to replace him have a very different story. both to security officials under saddam hussein after the u.s. led invasion of iraq in two thousand and three they both joined the sunni insurgency part of which later transferred into islamic state but mr thinks the
disaster could be avoided if the u.s. that coalition didn't destroy iraqi institutions when they're on the of saddam was disbanded a lot of the baath is for disgruntled to join the sunni insurgency has used forces and also against iranian backed militias a lot of the no ideological supporters advice is radical islam. but this feeling green the iraqi government saying that the u.s. was very heavy handed if you had to say they are trying certainly united states and united kingdom need all the advice given to them about dismantling the iraqi state specially being walking on a train security forces because one thing getting us down destroyed you want to stay a system that had led to this disaster. seeing as another day of protests members of the english defense league took to the streets to find out of spite of islamist terror attacks. groups who denies the counter-rally
solving slogan saying refugees a welcome in the country is a large police presence but as aussies laura smith reports that so many adding to the tension. another day another protest at least that's how it's being here in london at the moment these are two small but very strong demonstrations here we're standing with the english defense league they have come out today in response to the number of terrorist attacks that we have had here in the u.k. just over the past couple of months that saying enough is enough but we need to go up islamic fundamentalism because it's all for the reason that every i'm going about it as i say a small number of people very very emotional and it being very very heavy police then i'll do you find they come around and see just a little bit on the other side i think the police keep them very well apart but those are the unseen actually favor that unites against them and all that affiliates agree on they all have incredibly rocky that's about forty fifty of them
at the last count but they're very noisy and that's saying these people the english defense league have no place on the street the person they want to prevent them from marching that every time he'd be out about the anti fascist amounts while we speak to a few of the people who had they seen what go. against the rise. as them for being. fascism and words can't describe how much i take. every thing they . see fit and place them in society. for our freedom. no more surely lower in this country. all right there is a difference because all one christian values as it might mean right. behind pretty much. the one on the street at the capitol and even if they're not there the. hundred. helicopter up in the i just
a. very small. demonstration. of racial tension in the united states is making headlines yet again a university professor from connected received death threats made a facebook post in it he called for an end to white supremacy using an expletive laden version of the house let them die and this post was meant as a comment on the shooting of a republican congressman just last week the storm of anger though was so intense the campus had to be temporarily shut down and the professor self fled the premises and has since issued a public apology the latest figures shows crimes in the u.s. . at least six types of big cities this type of crime soared double digit increase last year. is the voiding society. reports of hate crimes have been surging across the 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 the 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 sign 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 palaces need to be developed i think they're stirring people up to foot one against the other and i believe that . assuming someone's economic or social or political standings based on their races that's really. wrong 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 collect statistics 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 that really to steer the public away from the really common issues which are affecting all such specks of society as with any controversy related to race it's quite apparent that americans don't see eye to eye. party new york. now we do have special coverage for you all of the twenty seven team football confederation's cup in just a couple of minutes. in
case you're new to the game this is how it works the economy is built around corporate confirmations from washington to washington post media. business to run this country business if. you must it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done before. the feeling of. every the world. the. world. according to josh.
twenty seventeen international football confederations cup is in full swing let's cross the lives. of more for a special coverage live from sochi. welcome to the black sea coast where the sun is just about to set here in sochi but it also looks like it might be setting on russia's confederation cup campaign as well i mean place that always introduced stan collymore let's talk gold action for russia to take the lead in this game against mexico took us through this gold story very brightly a wonderful finish as they said from some of the off because it dropped to even an open position in the box and he lent series roy to just pass the ball down to the
goalkeepers right on a very very good finish unfortunately very noise the problem a little bit of noise you could see russia has a very young promising to be spared this for against a team like mexico royden very high in their qualification group six points against the united states they fired they off three points above costa rica that did very well in the last world cup is that it's a little bit of noise secret team and unfortunately it's a one down but like you said this is all about testing the team for chess often he found himself in a situation where they had to leave the probably thinking let's hold onto it and they struggled on this occasion as a very very good mexico team how do you rate russia's performance overall it looks like they're on the way out barring teams like goals looking ahead to the three four world cup they've now got what i told nine months to be able to reform the system of ply following this system of ply and then to be able to implement not for the world cup the expectation is going to be much more choice is going to be many more fans is going to be much more media spotlight on church itself and all of the
russian players so one perspective will give them a solid seven out of ten it's a young side it's a new side we talked about the twins they're not in the side people made the courts in this particular tournament so give them a seven out of ten the effort has been there the organization has been there just need to tweak to a little bit of extra quality ok any more goals come in we'll of course tell you things can always change never known of the twenty thirty minutes. so things can turn around quickly in football now the next particular football match we played here in sochi the reason we're here really germany against cameroon on sunday at the fish stadium just a few hundred meters away didn't even have its own football picture originally when it was built to be a winter olympic venue so this is all this this place stan and i couldn't resist so we went to check out whether the fish he's ready for his new life as a football venue. from the racetrack over to our wallets the beautiful see the kids and the flame and of course the fish right here in the background i don't know cause the fish moved on develops new ways of proving itself poster lympics find out
ratio. to make stumm this page looks beautiful but the stadium stuff they said can't go on we can't trust this lot the very protective understand i mean it's new the new chewing it but is it always this sensitive a situation that you can step over the line because it's new it's because the grains man loves the ph d. sees them vibrate and it doesn't matter if we journalists trace only plays related to play on the speech. that he should security now deceased a strong reason to just attention to the details of security and to be fooled just how safe is it for people when they come to a full two thousand cameras in the stadium and some street that's moving in the
city of sochi from fires and stewards on a much tighter policing this is really a very size place to watch your foot. you can see these fantastic vantage points and the constant evolution of the modern stadium while the people who watch the here live pics everybody will be shocked to see the stands now with the ends of nothing that they for now drive down big screen to the side of the plane that's a major change. to come out and like that coming to the other end of all stands because if you look where the windows all that new restaurants are being built not a bad place to watch the game. if you see can see and enjoy most a difference it makes having taken the rich full of hot sunshine. and also it's not to mention it's sitting at the very top c c c on the parts of the stadium some of the stadiums around the world struggling close to look the bleachers at the end
begin to explore the sea breeze the sunshine can be fantastic. i love a lot of fun that was neil was in and yeah we were having a good time going to tell the bosses working hard looking out i want to sort out something we haven't mentioned yet amazingly v.a.r. which is the video assistant referee and it's just come into play at the russia game at a key moment so mexico schooled what we thought was a third goal those celebrations from their fans it's been reviewed and disallowed now what do you think about this this this is something that you're going to see as a football fan or if you know football from talked about a lot in the next twelve months it's you who's used to be in the twenty world cup recently which england won the under twenty one's friendlies are sort of stuck the front is france against by three correct decisions from technology because the result was they did right the full frontal even so what was the goal when you watch
it in the evening i always essentially a system is there to aid and assist the referee to make the right decisions on the day some people don't like it because this week stops the passion like a real break or perhaps in cricket brawn a big fan of it as you said it's used in lots of other sports and i think with great success maybe just a few teething arest to start with speaking of technology developments we talked about having your final id now some people have been watching the games on t.v. modern heard or seen very early on what seem to be partially empty stadiums and i can clarify this for you what it basically is this is a logistical issue that getting into the stadium scanning your fan id and also the extra security checks that causing delays people all arriving early enough simple when the world comes next year we mentioned in a lot. packages around the different stadiums you've got the door to the stadium you've got usually a hundred races and then you've got the airport style security next year the russian authorities and faith will cite turned up early get there have
a drink be with your friends and so on up to the guns so the stadiums have endangered being full but it's taken five to ten minutes of missing the action before they get to the sense of the like now such as used to big sporting occasions of course the words the winter olympics in two thousand and fourteen and home to the russian grump are a nail and i were very very excited to get to the formula one circuit we were like little kids and we had a little look for ourselves. so this is it the sochi also john this is where the russian for me long grown pretty takes place as we are on the racetrack i think it be rude not to actually race to go to football traffic cones and to race cars. presenting the song or to draw. a stick. representing the united kingdom a piece down the ground well maybe just seventy five centimeters sounds.
three. it's called new video replay the. stanley well done i have to hand it to you you are officially more joy and faster than the top of the range sports go andrew though was a great great subversive. place. i told you it was the third wrote that was very impressive to machine. some people would say you're past your best and you prove them wrong once again stan i just want to wrap things up this hour by talking a little bit about the fact we've moved our camera position there is a point to this and that is to show you a little bit more different side of such ok so there you go that's the black sea the sun setting but still well it's a people russians live there somebody they get in there is close and it is very enthusiastic the prominent real family atmosphere here so as well as testing out
the football infrastructure the stadiums this is a chance for people thinking of coming to the world cup to have a look at the city itself in that way as well as mountains mountains not stadium mountains or within the i mean the stadiums a few what few hundred meters away and you can see the beach so really can see how close everything is so your impressions of the city sochi quality absolutely fantastic sunshine after the rain of moscow blessed with relief. now is a drink and some and it's been a magic day all round thanks for joining us see our next hour. to your doctor tonight brings a common touch to mainstream media headlines. it
. does she don't consume the gel you've been talking to her the whole jellyfish dealing with this thing i'm done with will soon in that equal distance as my son and what he calls this tells me. this would all be done to tell him to live the way that devotional would he mean as his own as this is all started us it all took the sitting on.
wardrobe so joining the box party and it may feel like the online retailer is pretty much taking over your life your t.v. screen your shopping your reading and even your home have no fear folks it's only taking over your life in your home. amazon has brought breathtaking a fish and sea to consumerism right it is also brought breathtaking inefficiency to consumerism amazon is incredibly convenient for all of us and it is the worst thing to happen to us since the bottom play. it's like of the one that played got infected with steve bannon when. it came down to. those statements that i just said are true and yet they conflict right there a paradox and it makes your brain want to punch itself in the face and yes a brain could punch itself in the face our eye the mind does it every time chris matthews speaks. in our culture we are now almost incapable of taking multiple
ideas into our brains when when those ideas are condensed into one topic or one story for example i recently talked about how trump's withdrawal from the paris climate agreement is both exceedingly awful for humanity and also not that big a deal it's awful it's awful because of what it means for our ability to cooperate and ability to think intelligently. it's not a big deal because the paris agreement was all laughable sure from the beginning. when you have everyone from oil tycoons to war criminals clinking champagne glasses when the thing is signed you've got yourself a climate of course. we want everything we discussed to break down to either good or bad right either important or completely on important either on or exceedingly off leak. i'm not sure what the opposite of.
