3:06 pm
by a burning desire to see the world but how could i do that in those days so i told myself that i would be a football player i pledged that never in my life would i smoke a cigarette or drink a gram of wine or beer you know he never had the chance to play in a world cup at home but he knows it's something not to be missed and desert playing in front of your own fans hearing the whole country support behind you is something you can't beat as a footballer you want nothing else i never got the chance but if these boys do it'll change their lives god who pulls a matter of national pride in russia this is how the country reacted when the team reached the semifinals of the two thousand and eight european championships i. hope this support will swing fief is vote some of. the most important thing is a national sport which is loved in every city and village in this country with the
3:07 pm
. the found support here is unconditional they just want more to cheer about you know winning this seat will help it's got to be over i see it there with the ball in the world cup at home would give the youth coaches an impetus so that by two thousand each one story several talented young players to defend on our first. emblems of pressure on their chests just will not step on and it's the only thing these boys dream. i've been it r t moscow. five years ago israel pulled out of gaza leaving it to the palestinians the aim with peace then but as some jewish settlers refused to leave quietly the consequence was more criticism and ongoing violence so now that israel's thinking over a withdrawal from the west bank as well some settlers are worried they'll also be forced from their. five years on and the pictures still haunt israeli soldier pitted against israeli citizen israelis had hoped that by
3:08 pm
withdrawing one thousand settlers from gaza they'd be extending an olive branch to the palestinians but most underestimated the violence and heartbreak that would follow after the press some enough will put some of the soldiers clear they went to the window and shouted i said why don't you come and knock on the door like normal people they told me your and you were supposed to have loved guards are already the soldiers were crying the children were. looked at guards i looked at this and i said that's it it's over. you have to live ryan lived in gaza with your husband and nine for sixteen years until the last moment they refused to pack up and left with nothing more than the clothes on their back assigned to the house was the only thing they brought with him. five years ago most israelis supported the withdraw but today more than half think it was a mistake throughout israel there are some dozen communities like this where gaza
3:09 pm
refugees despite the promises made to them are still living in temporary housing. and now in settlements across the west bank people are afraid the same fate awaits them. goldstein has been mayor of the settlement block for eleven years he's furious with israeli premier benjamin netanyahu who in his latest bid for peace allegedly offered the palestinians ninety percent of the west bank if they agree to direct talks of palestinian president mahmoud abbas is under pressure to give an answer in the coming days if the government of israel. would decide to go out of. forming quitting suicide there with the israel if we're going to give them our. drive for a. vehicle. drive it for ten minutes who can defend these really government spends moving two billion dollars so let's get back to eighty eight thousand
3:10 pm
seaters from gaza it would need to remove many fifty times that number from the way spank a financial and logistical nightmare mostly assessments of the principle of thing until we. i think he for numbers were the fairly and and location were. was the following maybe we could reach an agreement. for many of those two states and the palestinian sovereignty today more than ever israeli settlers in the west bank have disappeared these made public the last thing they want is a repeat of these pictures i fixated on more. we are not going to do it like this. we are not going to disengage we are not willing to do any concessions it's time of the arabs it's time of the palestinians to do their part in the game and while the israeli government contemplates another withdrawal of around still waiting to be reimbursed for her homes she was promised

3:12 pm
eight so we believe that life has become bitter things have even bad consequences of the long term because in illegal tim for some people seeing gaza it becomes independent and we palestinians would have the responsibility of the gaza strip for others and foremost political analyst they believe here that the israeli side would have the full responsibility and the gaza strip still under the israeli occupation up to now. this is our take coming up the making their voices heard immigrants in finland hope a parliament of their own will break barriers and the threat of racial unrest but not everyone thinks it'll work we've got a report coming. strong winds and heavy rains are taking the place of the record heat wave that's been baking russia since the middle of june on sunday up to one hundred thousand people left kristie of to outcompete some people work suburbs

3:16 pm
the taliban and terrorist organizations to avoid a further escalation of violence frederick william and olson author of the bestselling book century of war he told us instability in the central asian region is in america's interest. comments about pulling out by july of next year are simply ludicrous as petraeus indicated the nato troops and certainly the u.s. force command are not at all planning to pull off because the afghan. occupation you have to understand it has nothing to do or very little to do with afghanistan for say it has to do with russia it has to do with china it has to do with the central asian countries and she. breading what some of called a thirty years war scenario to prevent the independent development economically of china russia and the c.o. shanghai cooperation states so this is all politics on the part of obama about pulling up extreme right there's even a question of what is the taliban and afghanistan today because. the pentagon
