3:18 pm
a tree parades have been held annually. over the last few weeks in the build up to the day we've brought you many touching stories like ninety four year old veteran anna who joined the resistance straight after graduating from school becoming a front line scout she sustained injuries that prevented her from having children later in life her husband died a few years ago so now she's all alone and also people to send her letters and postcards to mark victory day and the. response it seems has been overwhelming. pushes the deceased's the book and he just threw it at the beginning years ago under the rumor that the agency would see at the. beginning that c.b.s. reversing its own for the silliest at least it is the feature this week was that it
3:19 pm
was and is it is feeling the effects it is. the planners push it steve fishman it pushes years earlier for its forces it is doing well look good people are barely getting my you were. teaching the church their businesses were the things this is. all places where they were to stand there and. there are each of the. six it.
3:20 pm
was. you know world's big partners through a lot and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that mainstream media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door. and shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now we're watching closely watching the hawks. what politicians do so. they put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. for something i want to.
3:21 pm
get it right to be close this is what the four three in the morning can't be good. i'm interested always in the waters in the. first city. tease how they don't how to international memorial awards twenty nine see the now open for entries the media professionals are eligible whether you're a freelance journalist what's real terms of media or part of a global news conference to participate in sunday's show published works in video rich and so much go toward dot dot com and into now. welcome back to the program pressure is mounting on europe to save the iranian nuclear deal. talks at a summit in romania french president among the stressed that would be washington to blame for terrans decision to leave the treaty even though he believes that haunt
3:22 pm
for twenty fifteen. dream and need surgery. from the very beginning france has been committed to the deal that was negotiated and signed the deal is no sufficient we would like to take into account iran's missile activities the e.u. has released a statement saying that it strongly urge is iran to continue to implement its commitments as it has done until now it also says it rejects any ultimatums from tehran and says that it will assess iran's compliance with the deal washington has already imposed fresh sanctions on tehran trump reiterated his need for a fresh deal a fair deal as he called it and his secretary of state mike pompei o said that it's a ron that's violating international norms the iranian regime's announcement that it intends to expand its nuclear program is in defiance of international norms and
3:23 pm
a blatant attempt to hold the world hostage because threat to renew nucular work that could shorten the time to develop a nuclear weapon on the schools the continuing challenge the iranian regime poses to peace and security worldwide well that was pompei or is a response to terrans an announcement yesterday that it too would withdraw from certain parts of the iranian nuclear deal saying that china and russia had sixty days to protect iran's oil and banking sector from u.s. sanctions all this threatens to rival what really was an agreement a diplomatic agreement of historic proportions and twenty fifteen the obama administration the e.u. russia china and iran finally signed this historic deal that had taken years of negotiation but it led to iran holding its nuclear weapons production in exchange for the easing of sanctions i hear the trumpet ministration pulled out of the deal
3:24 pm
. the mantra over the past year has been of maximum pressure on iran and the europeans have been trying to mitigate this situation throughout the past year and although the u.s. has sort of thrown in the towel the americans on just punishing iran with the economic sanctions they are doing what so called these secondary sanctions that means they're threatening to target any foreign companies that deal with tehran and guess which side many multinationals are choosing europe's tried all sorts of complicated mechanisms to circumvent the new reality there is a system called instead that's not yet operational but they're trying to kind of block the sanctions from european companies that are still up holding their side of the deal but really this deal has taken a big hit the net result is that tehran says that all they've had from europe for the past year has been more also poll the fact that europe's in the middle of it
3:25 pm
was felt most keenly i think in the u.k. yesterday it really was rather awkward because the u.s. secretary of state might pompei was in london on a visit visiting his u.k. counterpart jeremy hunt and jeremy hunt was asked flat out whose side are you on anyway take a listen to his response if they break the deal then there will be consequences in terms of european we aren't so we. very long going home before the break we're working together to push back against that to your question about whose side are you on. this is a parlor game that gets played on the same side when the side of europe it was the u.s. that unilaterally pulled out of this agreement now over a year ago if it even if you listen to the opinion of the un it says iran has been complying with the terms of the deal so you've got the us upping the ante. he with
3:26 pm
yet more sanctions on iran saying well we're going to give you sixty days or we stop complying on our side so both sides becoming increasingly polarized and you have your up some bang in the middle of it all. the second world war monument in chicago is igniting passions it was erected by the lithuanian community which says it honors a war hero and resistance fighter but a leading jewish human rights organization says he was also a nazi collaborator the ceremony honoring adolphus rahman ask us that was held just days after victims of the holocaust were collaborators around the world the little indian foreign minister also took part in the unveiling of the long island lutheran it considers the role of roman askers our national hero and maintained its we did not collaborate with the nazis under the code name. was a prominent part as in in lithuania he opposed the soviet of ministration during
3:27 pm
and after the second world war although there's no solid proof that he himself killed anyone when the country was occupied by the nazis the simón v. centile center believes he led a gang of local vigilantes which persecuted the jewish community director from things the monument is an insult to the victims of the war. it's basically spitting in the face of holocaust survivors of the jewish community of any person with any morality who expects a member of the e.u. to preserve certain values and i can promise you that i don't mean people who are collaborators with nazis is not one of the values of the european union or any other normal organization there's no evidence on the other hand because some self killed anybody but the gang that he headed was actively involved in persecution from the top and that the soviet union crumbled there's been a very systematic attempt to rewrite the narrative of world war two and the
3:28 pm
holocaust the trying to hide the role played in the holocaust by local collaborators in that respect you have to keep in mind that only in eastern europe did collaboration with the nazis include active participation in mass murder chicago officials say yet to comment on the monument we spent to rabbi it said friedman joint and rally in new york against what he calls praising kelis he says he'll appeal to conquest to put pressure on lithuania. public outcry so i can help and contact the members of congress as we're going to do in this case and i want to make that clear that's the next step lobby members of congress it doesn't happen overnight to put pressure on them to win it to speak to representatives of the jewish community to tell them don't go to lithuania until they correct this travesty why began to lithuania where they're honoring the murder of thousands and thousands of people so it's going to take time but that's going to happen so it was
3:29 pm
with that in mind we decided to begin the process with the rally being the first step and the plan to follow up with the other steps and we would hope that at some point you know the good people went away and you know what i'm going to start saying why are we honoring a guy that killed lithuanians because of people they killed were lithuanians they happen to be of the jewish faith so why we are going to guy is this the best we have can we find a guy that we should honor as being a lithuanian euro that was not murdering lithuanians of the jewish trait to have any faith i think that's a question they should be asking. we'll be back in around thirty minutes time with more top stories and of course continue with our special coverage of victory day so
3:30 pm
do stay with us. this is a sticker from the water bottle phone in the stomach of the fish the brand is part of the coca-cola company which sells millions of bottles of soda every day the idea was that let's tell consumers there are the bad ones there the litter bugs are throwing us away industry should be blamed for all this waste the company has long promised to reuse the plastic. so six. thousand may lead to that soon close set for some their classic mistake
