live. for years in from the scores of islamist extremists returned to the country a much bolder effort to. you video appears online showing me around a sixteen year old german girl who when she joined islamic state she could not face the death penalty. the russian speaking children are stuck. in iraq not knowing their names or groups or their parents allegedly fighting for islamic state are there are doing stories.
2:01 pm
just after nine pm this monday evening here in moscow welcome to r.t. international i mean i know neal good to have your company our top story over two hundred fifty islamist extremists have recently come back to from softer fighting in iraq and syria some of being arrested the courts are currently plowing through the cases of others and the numbers were revealed by the french interior minister who also highlighted that the terror threat remains extremely high and an attempt to try and rein in extremism from says opened our how to up and i should say its first. center nearly a year ago but the facility was already hit the buffers charlotte dubin ski reports it was billed as a front seat. with just gone to. was the country's.
2:02 pm
radicalization center when it opened last year it. was here. this is rehab for extremists once in front. right psychologists say will provide therapy and counselors will teach students about this isn't ship. i am. i i have heard. that if no small thing this center should be located somewhere much less populated there is a school just eight hundred meters away but mission of separate i don't think it's an intelligent move to put the ridiculous zation center next to a nuclear power station it's terrifying and i'm against it. they're trying to fix the problem but it's about a kilometer away from the nuclear plant. but
2:03 pm
the whole huge decision they aren't terrorists they have only been interrogated and solved by police. we've been told that evidently there wouldn't be any violent people but there would be only those who are the early stages of friday causation. but just months later the shutters down so what did go wrong. at a cost of two point five million us pay year knowing that people were treated none finished the course one resident from the center was even a rested for having links to those behind the paris. and fifty one leave from his rehabilitation and since february not a single person is being here the deed radical i say should so did this friendship the money. it is a complete fiasco everything is to be rethought everything is to be reconstructed
2:04 pm
according to people to me putting it mildly yes i would say this is a fiasco. money spent this way is a waste there are so many other things to do but to spend it on radicalized people know there are other associations and other centers to spend money on this could not have turned out well if it is organized this way just letting people in and convincing them to think the other way or to see differently there are four or five people at once this is too expensive but residents say based on their pleas that the center it's closed because it's nothing but. i was against this center from the beginning and i am happy it is now closed this center should not have been here there is a nuclear plant near here i think the location was inappropriate as it is quite close to the town to the kids this is too close to houses and not very secure and
2:05 pm
were not properly informed we did not receive any information many people sold their houses because of the center a complete failure that's how many people are describing this project and many and now left wondering if france has a concrete solution to the estimated fifteen thousand citizens who have been radicalized in this country. to me since france. terrorism expert doug was consulted by the french authorities about opening this center we spoke to him earlier and this is what he thinks went we'll. the french have historically not taken on the. approach one comes to. engaging with people they find orally more radical and start spraying us and really tell me charlie mto attacks in two thousand and fifteen thinking very little to try and actually stem
2:06 pm
the tide of the problem that was developing following the two thousand and fifteen attacks in paris there was a renewed interest in trying to. alter knowing something on a more proactive warning and so the french government commissioned a small her to look into what other countries around europe were doing when the french announced that they were going to create a new center and a manner that actually. i think never mind that we're. this community and small and show about it where the shot.

2:15 pm
its attacks we discussed the issue with jamal wakim an international relations professor at beirut's lebanese university he say's u.s. airstrikes are not effective in country in the root cause of the violence i believe the disobedience of the primary victims of the war going on in afghanistan and that's what in the world isis. and the taliban and other predators groups in afghanistan. know. going to the human lives. for the united states which claims that it respects human rights. rights who promote democracy is less about human lives especially when it comes to an un-american and human lives it's not easy to wipe i would these groups you need to would again on the grassroots of the problem fighting radical.
2:16 pm
the latest major reshuffle among donald trump's top team has seen a series of sackings among his national security aides but even the man in charge of the dismissals is in the firing line over what might have driven is this isn't it more an all out here's kill blocking general mcmaster national security adviser to donald trump his loyalty to the president is supposed to be a default quality except now instead it's widely in question mcmaster made a decision to allow susan rice his predecessor in the job and long time obama ally to keep full access to classified information. the national security council will continue to work with you to ensure the appropriate security clearance documentation remains on file to allow you access to classified information this revelation emerged just weeks after it was revealed that susan rice had been unmasking members of the trump team who happened to be mentioned in classified
2:17 pm
intelligence reports by default the names are redacted but susan rice had been making sure that the names and information was readily available to anyone with a clearance to see classified government documents and potentially leak this information to the media susan rice's actions were flagged by as i recall one watt mic a member of the trumpet ministration since january apparently his revelation struck the wrong chord with mcmaster who has now dismissed him and it appears that's how it works with the general if he doesn't like you you go these people laid the very foundation of trump's foreign policy promises as a candidate we've been moving from one wrecked was intervention to another coup in libya syria iraq iran this destructive psycho bad decisions we cannot be the policeman of the world now that most of those who shape trumps foreign policy have gone we have this my attitude toward syria and assad has
2:18 pm
changed very much and i know you ordered a targeted new jersey state or if you can see it will handle both here we're going to be able to handle it will be it will be handled trouble they have come to washington promising that you would drain the swamp that's proving to be pretty difficult especially when you're already neck deep in it caleb r.t. new york. well according to reports the security clearance given to susan rice was a regular procedure issued for every living former presidential adviser rice say she's never requested the identities of team members be revealed for political purposes. interactive online campaign aimed at raising awareness about a right wing hate crime is being widely ridiculed in the u k. crossing the
2:19 pm
line it's called asks you to make several choices throughout the game depending on how you respond the story play out with your caracter becoming involved in far right activities it can even end with them killing a person or witnessing others commit murder through hate the project was created with the help of but for chirp police be endorsed by a number of other police forces right or wrong in britain to gain suggests that it doesn't take much to trigger someone to become violent or even radicalized the campaign is part of a wider one aimed at preventing terrorism well to debate the story we're not joined by a number of guests including my ahmed shah from the ramadan foundation and. political satirist you're both very welcome to the program gentleman who will start it me can we start with you what's your take on the game it has been suggested that the
2:20 pm
victim could be muslim with the graphic nature of this and the language used could the game actually have the reverse effect perhaps encourage people to become violent like we see in many video games. that question to you if you can hear me oh i'm just go ahead yeah. yeah i think that the it's a joke i mean it's ludicrous for for i don't know why they're spending time coding these ludicrous games. you say that a series of a knock you was choices for me and guy the gym will end up with you being a death a muslim in the street is so it's so strained incredulity that it boggles the mind i'm not sure why they did it i don't think solve any problems at all and of course i think all the ridicule they've got is fair game i'd rather personally spend my
2:21 pm
time playing call. of duty or donkey kong to be honest mohamed crossing the line of this app is called has been mocked by some who say the initiative suggests for instance muslims are always the victim never the criminals do they have a point in their hearts that he thought only goes one way with these kind of things that are brought in by authorities. well i think the first point is that we face a threat from extremism and terrorism those that use the violence for their political objectives while there is coming from some elements of the muslim community and why there is coming from the far right and whatever we can do to stop that threat war that we can stop people being radicalized in both sections of our society and if there are tools that can help highlight the problem of far right extremism in this country then i think that something will come you know we don't see ourselves as potential. continuous victims are as some people of the right will claim the fact is we face
2:22 pm
a common threat from terrorism from both sides and we've got to confirm both of them we can't just focus just on extremism and terrorism from the muslim community in ignore the threat of far right extremism when we ignore it what do you get what happens in france pretty park the mosque terrorist attack only a couple of months ago so i think we have to be very careful in the language that we use but more importantly if there's any tools that could help highlight the threat we face and stop people be radicalized through the internet then that's the good think is the affirmed point that perhaps authorities will be criticized more if they don't do something if they don't try to interact with the community and in this case the youth. yeah i know it obviously the need to engage people to the need to engage the youth there's no question about it but but this is not the way to do it again to to to make my point to me went over that you were a series of innocuous choices not going to lead you to beating a man to death in the street that's not the cause the radicalisation you have
2:23 pm
a beer with some guy you're making the person who wants to be something to death is going to do that whether or not he has a beer with a guy or not and the other point i wanted to address was technically there is violence from both sides technically we have to be able to focus on what the reality is which is most if not the overwhelming majority of all the terrorism we've seen in england and certainly here the united states has come from radical islam not from islam itself but for radical islam that's really if you want to get the head of the snake that's really we should be focused on not some sum game like because i think. well i look i mean i think that just comment there from our friend in new york just sums up what the problem is. we've had our mosque you know terrorist attack here in the u.k. carried out by the far right we have a mosque bombed only a few days ago in minnesota and this is what the right will always do they always said oh forget everything else is happening from the far right let's just focus on
2:24 pm
the muslims i accept the majority of terrorist atrocities we see around the world are carried out by so-called muslims the majority of victims of those terrorist attacks are muslims so you know our i've been pretty consistent of fighting terrorism been on the front line and confronting it but what we require now is the same leadership the same commitment from people on the other side rather than looking for excuses for far right extremism because it's an ever growing problem do you know we've seen a massive increase in the number of referrals to counter extremism. government department here in the u.k. the home office who said there's a massive increase of far right extremism and if you want you writing you've got to see where it starts from and what this video does it tells you story of radicalization of the far right and i just don't see why our colleague in new york has a problem with disney's see that the far right extremism and narrative and ideologies is equally as a problem as al qaeda are isis or anybody else from the ideology. are you
2:25 pm
serious are you seriously saying that far why by the way to be used i've used them violence looking for what i want you guys for follow do you seriously are trying to compare fringe right wing extremism which is exactly that it's fringe as opposed to the real credible problem we have with radical islam and by the way you're exactly right the majority of all victims of radical islam are not white guys in europe they're in mosques in pakistan and iraq i agree with you so these these law must. electorate should be the ones who are most concerned with radical islam but to compare a few fringe and that's what it is fringy right we can stream its attacks as opposed to what's going on overall in the radical islamic community is ludicrous as it is well it's hard to do a person we used to be you know mamma just let me go into the point here just a little details of the game show the helmet because it does seem to show that the process of running radicalisation being very quick very simple in fact it goes from
2:26 pm
a gym to being a killer people going down the gym meeting people eventually ending up being a murderer is not a realistic picture of british society today. i think in the environment which we live in and you know what i'm not for me personally as a human being violence is wrongful step now you tell that to the man who lost his life and his family indifference b. park mosque terrorists attack on you few months ago he stopped border why he's being carried out by the far right or is being carried out by nutters within the muslim community phyliss violence you know the idea that you put them in boxes and say well this is a smaller problem and therefore let's not pay attention to the les paul are focused into the biggest problem which is extremism and terrorism from the muslim community i think that approach is wrong we've got to take on the far right now to we've got to tickle the ideology of the far right and yes equally you've got to take on the terrorist ideology of violence that exists from within the muslim community some of
2:27 pm
those within the muslim community are doing that what we require now is the same leadership from the people who are so you know wanting to talk about extremism and terrorism i mean look at donald trump the president united states a mosque is fire bombed a deliberate attack against a place of worship worship in his country in minnesota and a few days ago and guess what the president hasn't said anything it just shows you how out of touch of bias the agenda is when it comes to muslim victims. i mean the game was released as i think muhammad was saying on the back of the u.k. mut metropolitan police the london police saying that he crime figures are on the rise why are hate crime figures on the rise do you think. well listen i think hate crime is and again to be clear any kind of via group of course i agree with my friend any any kind of violence is horrific but listen there are different kinds of hate crimes and they have different kind of causes there's
2:28 pm
no question there have been attacks against muslims and islam but by the way there have been tremendous attacks on synagogues all across england certainly france and they're not committed by the right wing which they used to be the most attacks of synagogues twenty five years ago were committed by the right now the attacks on synagogues are for the most part committed by radical islamists so they all have each of them have different different reasons i can't tell you what they all are i think we've become a very polarized society for example i think that's a very negative change in our in our in our politics but i think this this this notion of this game trivializes how one can become radicalized and i think it's focusing frankly on the wrong problem it's a problem but it's not the major problem. but i would just finally go ahead and yeah respond. sorry. just going to say one of the most pride is things that we saw off to the phones pretty pop terrorist attack was the local synagogue showing
2:29 pm
solidarity to the muslim community so i actually think the way forward is to use inclusive language not the language which divides communities but the language of brings together anybody who attacks a synagogue that's an attack against me and my faith and it attacks a mosque that should be the same for the jewish community and so we as faith communities should stand together against hateful language y. that it comes from within the muslim community and whether it comes from within the far right terrorism of violence is wrong full stop on which nobody should be making excuses for it. i mean we've got thirty seconds you want to respond just your final thoughts are not. no i'm glad because i'd rather come to the would agree that we both had. no no of course no i completely disagree but i you know i guess you know why don't we have it there i that's nice i like that point why not in deede a little bit of agreement at the end thank you for both spirited debate moment from the ramadan fondation heart of its political satirist from new york city.
