2:07 pm
the point that brings them together is an obsession with identity politics. yes it increased mission they say we are christians in the west and europe is based on judeo christian values which we have to defend against an invasion. tide there is also resistance in trees altie many residents don't want baron and his acolytes in the village the monastery is a pilgrimage destination that attracts tourists opponents want the italian government to prevent it being turned into a right wing training camp. but if the law is a cultural location in our village being used for an ideological project. the moderates terri interest is being used as the foundation for a movement but what are its ideals with whose money is it being funded to what in a. hard world plan is clear his center interests altie should become
2:08 pm
a launching pad for right wing populism across europe. he plans to open the doors to his first students this summer. so rebecca how is this center and balance plans to create this movement in europe being received by far right parties their. world bannon's willingness or desire dream you might say to unite far right parties in europe has been longstanding and as we heard in the report he created this organization known as the movement to try and funnel money into these far right parties but a lot of what he was trying to do with the movement turns out to be illegal in on the european law so he hasn't got very far and we've seen a lot of parties who he was trying to get onside for instance materia sylvania leader party and le pen's national rally party in france pushing them back away from baron and saying they don't need him and that they can go it alone and they're
2:09 pm
actually we think we've seen him distanced the selves from balance movement but his dream to unite the parties well that may be succeeding even without him roger becker riches in milan thank you very much for that. but we're now being yesterday with some other stories making news around the turkish president romney is in moscow for talks with his russian counterpart vladimir putin among the topics up for discussion turkey's plans to buy the advanced russian s. four hundred surface to air missile system the defense deal has angered the united states it's threatened turkey with sanctions if the deal does go ahead. and u.s. president other trunk's homeland security chief has resigned kissed. was the face of trump's controversial border policies including the extension on the mexico border and the separation of migrant parents from their children but she was also

2:11 pm
west bank that he is facing a stiff challenge from a former general the centrist benny gantz with a tight race ahead on middle east correspondent on extremists sent us this report on what voters are saying on the eve of the potence. benyamin netanyahu is likud versus benny gantz blue and white party is resurrection is said to be a tight race with voters remaining split including here in this close restore in jerusalem ilana benyamin hopes to be netanyahu as everyone calls to prime minister who form the next government she can see any i'll turn it. on and if. i think b.b. has a great team they're doing fine and have babies elected i will sleep well at night we will move towards a safe future for me for my sons and grandsons should we look at the another four years of maybe unthinkable for this young student guggenheim voted for netanyahu is
2:12 pm
likud party in the previous elections but this time his vote for the go to the new blue and white party headed by former army chief of staff benny gantz i think he has his time coming go to serve his country well i think after time for years the really the time has come to switch parties and have been born white take the premiership and move country to hopefully better and more secure places. when israelis go to the polls on tuesday they have a wide range of issues to consider and a record number of parties to choose from the economy and security are usually the top priorities for voters but this election is slightly different. in essence these are vital issues for israelis but they're not necessarily the big determinants of votes because we have a situation where the voters focusing primarily on the issue of netanyahu his ten year long governance over israeli society thirteen years in total and the corruption charges against him. despite facing an indictment on
2:13 pm
a string of corruption charges netanyahu can still count on a strong voter base. he campaigned on social media and by meeting foreign leaders with a clear message he's the only one who can keep israel safe and represent the country's interests abroad. meanwhile pentagons and his team of former army generals have been touring the country with the centrist blue and white party has been ahead of the likud in almost all opinion polls. in a small community in southern israel guns who served as military chief under netanyahu appears to voters there's only his party can move the country forward. mr netanyahu and his messages of busy dividing people and using incitement in order to survive we have busy reinforcing the security of israel and working towards a better future for our children. pulses predicted gunther netanyahu will compete

2:16 pm
to be full of what's been ecofin why does such international interest in this case . well first of all i'm rachael because it is well known internationally as well he worked regularly around the world including in germany and also because many people many critics of the kremlin say that this case really shows that freedom of speech is being restricted increasingly and that artistic freedom is being restricted increasingly after all city because he is known for his critical work he is often in his work in his pieces his productions criticize the current regime criticize the orthodox church criticize the living conditions in russia he also staged at the bolshoi theatre about les about rudolf no idea of a gay ballet dancer this in a country which has laws against so-called gay propaganda so he's always pushed the boundaries and many artists here in russia say this case really shows that it could

2:19 pm
civilians and the wounded to be about made from. the city and to avoid any further military action and if other military escalation according to the u.n. more than two thousand people have fled the fighting south of tripoli many others are still trapped by the hostilities and cannot escape. and for more let me draw in chris stephen he's god eons in libya correspondent and has been killed contact with people in tripoli welcome steven of intense fighting has been going on for the last few days in and around tripoli is the u.n. government there on the verge of being toppled in the all assessment. i don't know i think it's still in abouts that i mean the u.s. government still has the city center have to us forces are on the outskirts today in fact quite quiet everyone seems to be to be reloading but i think that the battles deafening the violence. a lot what's a bullet does a gender have not had among the people of libya and tell us
2:20 pm
a little bit more about his aims and what he hopes to achieve. what he has a lot of support in east libya and south libya yes some support in tripoli. and i think partly he's he you know he's argument is the libya is in chaos and he let me in the army run the country and what will end the chaos and that appeals to a lot of people doesn't appeal to everybody and a lot of people in tripoli a very very frightening specially because now you know he's army is fighting its way in and militias are fighting to stop him so a lot of people having been caught in the crossfire and of course libya has been in political chaos since the toppling of moammar gadhafi in two thousand and eleven the week of the u.s. corps for an end to the fighting that niall what do you make of international efforts to help solve this conflict. what i think the internationals of the pex i mean there's a libyan peace conference taking place monday next monday in fact which has taken
2:21 pm
more than a year or two to put together so the u.n. had been preparing have been hoping you could bring all these factions and militias and generals including taft up to the peace table but now instead that seems to be to be fragmented now you have this major fight so i think the u.n. are trying to figure out what to do that got very very limited options. i do more to all the implications of stephen off this fighting which is going on and the possible for one off tripoli agenda and i have thought. what i think is considerable i think if it truly does fall to the new yes i mean that there's going to be tremendous upheaval there's also going to be problems for surrounding countries because you're going to have refugees and of course you have all these migrants and refugees who are there in libya now and desperate to get out . the rights of the implications are huge for the country as well as for the region instability well kristie even thank you very very much for that update on the
2:22 pm
situation in libya. now here in germany police have lucia crackdown on so-called criminal clans many of our big and origen the clans of believed to have thousands of members and they have this strong in the rural area you can see that there you have hanover breman as there is here in berlin for decades some families were able to build their own tightly knit criminal mafias but now authorities say they're going to adopt a zero tolerance policy towards such groups many of these families came to germany in the one nine hundred seventy s. and eighty's they were not allowed to walk and received not to social welfare payments some were tempted to and money through criminal activities ranging from robbery to drug dealing police i'm now worried they are through on young refugees and recruiting them for their criminal activities in an attempt to destruct the scene police have launched what they call the strategy of a thousand pinpricks our reporter mark at has. a large scale raid
2:23 pm
in berlin is not done district investigators are mainly targeting shisha bars where they suspect organized crime clans are laundering money customs investigators auditors and federal and state crime authorities accompanied by hundreds of police officers are searching the bars it's the biggest operation of its kind in berlin one can district mayor martin he has come along he wants to know how the mission is going. this time the improprieties are minor offenses tobacco without tax stamps and violations of trading and child protection laws but the district mayor says he won't turn a blind eye. we can publish everything with these checks from minor to major offenses we are implementing a zero tolerance strategy here large scale raids like this are part of
2:24 pm
a new campaign against organized crime clans suspected of committing. major offenses including the breaking of a luxury department store in broad daylight or the theft of a one hundred kilogram gold coin worth millions but convicting clan members is difficult not least because few are willing to testify about two hundred thousand individuals are reportedly members of arab clan families in germany the government is increasing the pressure by seizing luxury cars and real estate but organized crime researcher ralph gadahn says that's not enough to break the clan solidarity fifty three they're all sworn to secrecy and that's what makes the investigators work so difficult there are unable to break through these structures. there would need to be a support program for people who want to leave the class or program but there are no such programs yet how delusions came from syria ten years ago almost every day

she sees the klan's at work along zone and one of nikon's main streets but she's afraid their crimes will strengthen prejudices against innocent migrants and muslims is on the on and on. the mafia is here concentrated here on the. life. you know. this and i think sooner or later something is going to happen here . she said she's most afraid of a xena phobic attack americans district mayor however has a different concern that more migrants will fall into a life of crime if the state does not do anything about it. i think it's a big good if we make this a crime that might exist here or we could make a pasta hard to make it uncomfortable so that it's not worth it to come here to commit crime. so germans should get used to huge police actions like this one authorities say they know these are not enough but that they lack better resources
