so you are going. to. walk in and walk. the walk it's to create awareness and promote healing around the subject of child sexual abuse this type of behavior. because of the sentences that are down to the justice system. the european union warns that new anti russia by the u.s. house of representatives threatens the bloc's energy independence. islamic state fighters returning home leave authorities in europe struggling for a coordinated way to deal with them. whatever reasons why they were and if we could get to them and put them on the extremist courses radicalized them then i think they would have an opportunity should be no difference whether woman or child thousands of jihad use already ruled in our
streets which is. why do we need more. and the operation exposes how the pentagon gave away more than a million dollars worth of minutes put links of fake at least one. is two o'clock am in moscow and you're watching it all to international life almost to do with me in a day or two to welcome to the program. we start with breaking news this hour the european commission president. has voiced concern over the possible harm the united states. implemented could have on the european energy sector he says that america first cannot mean that europe's interests. commission is.
concerns notably because of the draft bills possible impact on energy independence it nevertheless foresees the imposition of sanctions on any company including european which contributes to the development maintenance modernization or repair of energy expert by appliance by the russian federation depending on its implementation this could affect infrastructure transporting energy resources to europe it could also have an impact on projects crucial to the e.u.'s diversification objectives such as the baltic liquefied natural gas project is currently unclear whether the package will get the approval of president trump as it prevents him from lifting earlier sanctions without congressional approval russia's deputy foreign minister has already slammed the move is defying common sense callup open explains what's in the bill. the sanctions bill that was passed it targets many parts of russia's economy it targets mining metal manufacturing one part of the bill that was specifically singled out was the energy sector of russia's economy the bill penalizes any company that cooperates with russia's
pipeline projects this is what tim ryan a representative from ohio had to say we must continue to focus on how we get our gas here in the united states our natural gas to europe to our allies so they're not so dependent on russia at this point the new sanctions bill from the u.s. congress specifically targets the construction of a key russian gas pipeline into europe and now it says this gas pipeline has a detrimental impact on europe's energy security in the same paragraph of the bill it says that the u.s. should prioritize exporting its own natural gas in order to create american jobs help its allies and secure u.s. foreign policy of this excess natural gas we have now which they don't want to leave in the u.s. because it will lower the price of profits they want to export it particularly to europe well if you're going to explode it to europe you've got to reverse the
relationship of dependency germany and other others on russian gas so this gas play here this energy play is deep and behind the scenes comically for the united states here now at this point russia sells the european union thirty eight percent of its natural gas with only two percent of european union natural gas imports coming from the united states you can bet that some slick wall street syndicates would like to reverse that lineup so is everyone happy about it while absolutely not the european commission is planning out what its response will be if european businesses are hurt by the new sanctions from the united states we are following the spruces suite some concern regarding the european union's energy independence and the g. security interests cable mopp and r.t. new york. the commission has already prepared
a list of major european energy projects that could be affected by the proposed sanctions it includes both future expansion projects and existing ones like the north stream pipelines hitting big german and french companies labor rights lawyer dan kadlec also told us the sanctions bill is aimed at increasing the u.s. share of the european energy market. i do not believe this is about protecting democracy the us democracy or anyone else's this has a lot to do with the us wanting more of a share of the market in europe for its natural gas i think this has a lot to do with the us trying to gain a geo political and economic upper hand in the east i'm not sure if the european union has the courage to take action against the us on this frankly i'm worried that the u.s. will be able to impose these sanctions notwithstanding the e.u.
is opposition to. a sixteen year old german girl captured by iraqi forces last week could be put on trial or expelled from iraq that's according to a statement from the german prosecutor's office venza went missing and this is back to joining i saw she now says she regrets joining the terrorist organization and wants to go home to her family here's what people in her hometown had to say the speech in which the girl is sixteen and got into this mess at fourteen fourteen and a half via the internet so whatever i think she should return everyone has the right to make a mistake and everyone should get their second chance. if you generalize the case of linda you have to admit that young people in our country are not capable of defending themselves against the extremist ideology because of a lack of identity and education leading to a situation where a fifteen year old is ready to fight in a so-called holy war. as you heard local seem happy that linda could return to her
family but other returning fighters get a very different reception in one case a petition was even more in the u.k. to keep a nice old recruiter out of the country daniel hawkins explains how approaches vary widely across europe. i saw is crumbling in syria and iraq rapidly losing territory strongholds and most importantly followers an estimated five thousand fighters traveled to the middle east from europe twenty to thirty percent are said to be returning the specter of returning jihadi is wrecking havoc on european streets has haunted governments for a while but tackling this growing threat has proved problematic weeding out extremists who pose the biggest risk is the greatest challenge with many seemingly slipping through the net all willing to fight to european law and justice on their own terms. i don't want to come back permanently my return will be purely for
the lawsuit i know i have no future in the neverland's a big stamp has been printed on me your return you've joined the battle in syria and i want to defend myself the netherlands as it respects the rule of law so which suspect must have the right to defend himself in a court i think the charge against me is in for the biggest obstacle is the lack of a cohesive power in the european policy on returning fighters some seem to show remorse about traveling to join the caliphate like this jihadi broad from kent the public show little sympathy over seventeen thousand people signed a petition just to stop her returning the british government though has now started using so-called temporary exclusion orders to control the movements of terror suspects but even this policy lacks a fully united front in engaging with intelligence services and with the police and with border force we make sure that they have the tools to track them and keep them out where we can the british government's response has been to try to make it
impossible for them to travels restrict their ability to travel to take upon themselves the ability to remove passports and strangely to deny people the right of return which is legally a very questionable decision by the british government. the picture is even more mixed across the channel countries such as germany the netherlands and then ma they offer rehabilitation programs even with counseling employment and education sweden takes things a step further in fact one suspected sweetest the hardest was the rest that heathrow airport now swedish authorities refused to fully cooperate with the investigation of the british security services which contributed to the ultimate collapse of the trial according to sources he is now back in scandinavia under a new identity assigned by the swedish government is not also simple though the u.k. has taken a polar opposite take on citizens joining jihadi groups being one of the few countries to actively participate in actually hunting down and eliminating its own
national suspected of being a threat to national security i know this is a common. issue these very much. earlier which coach. also there are many countries that haven't really given any serious consideration yet so it's very much devoid of consensus as to what's actually could be done with these with the european freedom of movement returning terror suspects always seems to be one step ahead of the security services and with such wildly differing approaches in tackling a growing threat it's no wonder corporation intelligence sharing and coordinated policies are still heavily lacking we asked a muslim rights campaigner and a member of the u.s. democrats on the situation with jihad it's returning home from of the scenes. people those involved in terrorism who made a deliberate choice to go out there chose to go out there so i don't see how we can welcome them back i think is slightly different for the women and the children
whatever reasons why they were and if we can get them back and wanted to them and we educate them put them on extremism courses and be radicalized them then i think they have an opportunity most of all that should be no difference whether it's a man woman or child their way in which to say if we're going to try and look at the education then it has to be gone abroad it cannot be done in this culture because they will be a burden and a national threats we have to make sure that these people. can not get anywhere in this country well i think most of them haven't you know been involved in criminality in in terms of terrorism again you know the security agencies are going to have to the police are going after those individuals cannot our security service which overstretched at the minute having to worry about more people and we've got thousands of jihadists already roaming our streets which has been put out by the government why do we need more one point must disagree or cause at the moment one of the things that's in the media is about this jihadi jane. all knew she was
promoting the killings of western people now under the rule she's female she would be allowed in my rules no she would not be allowed it actually i think it would be really strong for our intelligence agencies and the police in terms of the battle against terrorism to actually you know bring it back to interrogated to put on trial in this country so we're able to be able to get intelligence from her about how she's been you don't have to worry about all the world i just think is a good thing. to help the fight against our values they want to kill they want to destroy the culture and democracy that we have if we need to look at. these people they're not should be doing over countries. because we are in iraq or north africa should not be brought to the you're going to be a drain on the taxpayer your threat to our national security many people who i've spoken
to and i have a relationship with who were former extremists who were brainwashed by the terrorists like i just showed three and. made an isis and al qaeda you know through concerted reachin work over many many years we were able to change those minds. agents posing as policemen have received military care worth one point two million dollars from the pentagon the undercover operation by u.s. government accountability office was to test weaknesses in a gear giveaway program and as tackling the reports it's not the first time that military equipment has gone astray. the pentagon is the home of america's department of defense the body that has a budget of over five hundred billion dollars a year and is tasked with protecting the national security of the united states and yet they were duped by a completely phony outfit into selling one point two million dollars of weapons the
government accountability office whose job it is to audit other federal agencies set up an undercover operation to determine whether the d.o.d. would sell military grade weapons to an unauthorized buyer and they did the g.a.o. created a fake law enforcement agency put up a bogus website use an address that led to an empty parking lot and put it in order for some potentially deadly kit less than a week later at the sham agency it was the proud owner of one point two million dollars worth of night vision goggles simulated m. sixteen a two rifles and pipe bomb equipment they never d. and the verification like the cation and most of the was by e-mail it was like getting stuff of eve and that's one of the most recent example of the pentagon's faulty bureaucracy earlier this year it was revealed that the u.s. army failed to properly track over a billion dollars worth of weapons and equipment and iraq and kuwait lax controls and record keeping such as this has reportedly resulted in u.s.
manufactured arms and then up in the hands of terrorist groups such as i sold this means the u.s. is shipping out weapons without being sure where they end up and just this week the pentagon was criticized for wasting as much as twenty eight million dollars by selecting forest camouflage pattern uniforms for afghan national army soldiers for a sprint in afghanistan only two point one percent of the country is covered by forest the u.s. defense secretary slammed the pentagon for the waste of taxpayer dollars and called for reform rather than minimize this report or excuse wasteful decisions expect all department of defense organizations to use this area as a consulate to bring to light wasteful practices and take aggressive steps to end waste which is all. well and good but this is not a new problem two years ago were port service that the pentagon buried an internal study that exposed one hundred twenty five billion dollars worth of administrative waste that was allegedly hidden amid fears that congress would use the findings as an excuse to slash the defense budget and maybe that's exactly what should happen
perhaps if the department wasn't blindly awarded hundreds of billions of dollars every year it wouldn't be quite so comfortable throwing it into the wind. r.t. washington d.c. . violence has flared up again in jerusalem over the placement of detectors at the entrance to the al aksa mosque compound we'll have that story and reaction after this break. people with stories to tell. those who deserve to be heard. inside. still the new york city. users. you see very little since. they're here to speak are you there to hear.
in case you're new to the game this is how it works now the economy is built around quite. perforations from washington to washington to meet. the media. voters elected to run this country business equals. boom bust it's not business as usual it's business like it's never been done. i. welcome back to the program clashes broke out in jerusalem again on choose day as a standoff continues between muslim worshipers and israeli police the unrest started over a decision by israeli authorities to install metal detectors at temple mount which
is known to muslims as hard as they were put up off the gunmen killed two israeli guards earlier this month at the holy sites the metal detectors have since been removed but security cameras remain in place. the. i. i. r t's paula slayer has the latest on the unrest in jerusalem. well certainly the situation on the ground remains extremely volatile and there are efforts to try and find a compromise the latest effort as you mentioned was the israelis removing metal detectors that they had introduced after two israeli policemen were killed nearly two weeks ago now that move has been rejected by the palestinians the israelis also say that they are looking at installing security cameras now this could take up to six
months we understand that particularly palestinian women feel it will be immodest there will be some kind of x. ray system inside these cameras so it seems at this stage that a compromise is not on the immediate cards the palestinians are really insisting that the situation views of the security at the temple mount be the same as it was before this whole flare up of violence that has been ongoing for the better part of two weeks now on tuesday night in front of lionsgate yet again they were confrontations between muslim worshipers and israeli police the police were using tear gas and other white control measures against palestinians who were throwing rocks and stones at them at this stage all eyes are focused on friday where there has been a nother call for worshipers to come to the mosque and to pray in front of the gates are not actually into the mosque and as we saw last friday this has the scene sit for potential confrontations there have so far been two meetings by the united nations security council we both israelis and palestinians have been trading barbs
and accusing each other of the latest flare up in violence well if the radical are you encouraged to kill innocent israelis in cold blood. buying power or prices food with it's the reckless and destructive agenda against our people holy sites even though we teach our children to invest in democratic values in the general enduring peace. the palestinians do not they teach hate they invest in terror the stocking of early just conflict is the rapidly unfolding israeli persists with its illegal actions in occupied east jerusalem this council of the palestinian authority will stop burning that there were thousands of dollars every month the palestinian people in the city face negotiation subjugation discrimination on demolished and violence but certainly on the ground the situation
is tense and there are concerns that it will be inflamed even more. for arab countries have added new individuals and organizations linked to qatar to their terrorist lists further escalating the round between the us allies last month they cut ties with qatar which is a major global gas supplier and host to the biggest u.s. military base in the middle east miguel francis explains. the saudis keep poking at qatar with claims that harbors and sponsors terrorists al-qaeda to be precise the riyadh has now added eighteen more groups and individuals to the list of terrorists allegedly sponsored by qatar but these claims are based on all documents which begs the question why weren't they released earlier let's go back a bit the could tars sponsors terror attack line was intended to make doha given to
the saudi demands some of which included closing down the al jazeera news network cutting ties with iran shutting down a turkish base making it next to impossible for qatar to comply with the saudis are not backing down just yet a couple of days ago n.b.c. four in washington d.c. began airing commercials that claim qatar is sponsoring terror and destabilizing u.s. allies in the region and guess what the thirty second ads were paid for by none other than the saudi american public relation of ferrous committee the biggest saudi lobbying firm in the united states now all of this is happening despite the fact that the saudis main ally the u.s. has been singing quite a different tune about qatar even signing new deals with doha u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson visited the shake them twice in forty eight hours just over a week ago he even said he could have cleaned up their act coterie. or rather were. ever put forth and so was i hold it or could consider.
living this way which is really where the poster thing to get with the coterie or there would be a good news for. both. the americans don't know what to do because trump wants to go on about terrorism and putting down to qatar as being a supporter of terrorism. yet at the same time they have this huge air base in qatar that will go. disappear like this you know if there is a war against qatar saudi arabia must have felt on top of the world when their king held a glowing crystal ball with donald trump but if they thought that crystal ball could tell them the future they were mistaken francis and giago r.t. . residents of a town in the south of france have built
a wall around an abandoned hotel to protest against plans to house right there. just. this wall was built because people are scared of a massive influx of foreigners who do not have the same culture as us we don't know if his temporary our schools don't have the capacity to receive them the school canteens and sports facilities are not big enough this is being imposed on us and it's shocking this war will force them to listen to was before our wishes were in being heard but now that we have poured out the war they're listening. to belgian lawyer who told us that the residents just want to make their concerns about migration policies felt. there is a nice and even anger from the cities and i sing that these kind of events that we
have seen since the act was just multiply in the future it's a tool to feed you the e.u. without the holy see those who decide these politics beat the e.u. live a little bit but all this to my cool look the dinner we've. confronted these realities and that's a major major problem. and you can find us across social media on facebook and of course our website that's often dot com i'll be back at the top of the hour . with more make this manufacture consent to stick to the public well. when the
ruling classes protect themselves. with the famous. lips and be the one percent. we can all middle of the room sick. here's what people have been saying about rejected in the senate it's been a long awesome the only show i go out of my way to find you know what it is that really packs a punch. yeah it is the john oliver of r t america is doing the same we are apparently better than. some see people you've never heard of love redacted tonight president of the world bank very. seriously send us an e-mail.
it's the feeling of. the world experience. and you'll get it on the old the old. according to jess. come along for the ride. greetings and sell you. its health care and rush in iraq iran sanctions galore today in washington d.c. and sandwiched in between all the pomp and circumstance of a cancer fighting john mccain voting on a belief never read and saber rattling cold war style sanctions in the house of representatives is c.n.n.
in newsweek declaring that russia is supplying arms to the taliban in afghanistan at least that's what their headline implied but it's not exactly what the evidence proves newsweek's damian sharkey of reports that according to what a taliban splinter group told c.n.n. they acquired their guns as spoils of war after a bank wishing a local taliban rival group to receive the russian arms be a moscow's military ally iran which i venture must be the arms dealing equivalent of the old i heard from a guy who heard from a guy who heard from a guy who bought it from his sisters brothers nieces nephews beyond say. but c.n.n. also has video proof ladies and gentlemen yes video proof that shows a kalashnikov style rifle in the hands of the taliban fighters in afghanistan. think about that one for a minute all you history buffs out there i want you to think about that for
a moment a collage nic rifle in the hands of a fighter in afghanistan yes wow earth shattering evidence of something that's never happened before in the history of humanity and warfare in afghanistan as c.n.n. zone article had to admit weapons experts from the small arms survey study the videos and said there was little in them to directly tie the guns to the russian state you know i think maybe c.n.n. the newsweek should start worrying less about moscow's arms dealing and start worrying more about our own pentagons here at home you see according to the government accountability office the pentagon just got caught in a sting handing over one point two million dollars in weapons and equipment to a completely made up and fake law enforcement agency thanks once again to the ever lovely ever controversial ten thirty three program. aka guns absurdity c.n.n. .
