it. didn't. look to. russia says a deal to hand over syria's chemical stockpiles is already in the pipeline with moscow's initiative indoors beyond braga bother amid lackluster support for war in the. meanwhile as he sources claim rebel fighters in syria are plenty a chemical attack against israel from government controlled territories in a blatant provocation. so far right extremist and brave it killed dozens in the mass and at the time norway legs and on to immigration party it was a member of as part of a right to weigh in coalition interim government look at how europe is increasingly turning away from multiculturalism.
russia and around the world this is us he was me thanks for joining us. most. say using the terms of a handover of syria's chemical weapons to the international community the move follows russia's proposal for the assad government to relinquish its toxic also in order to avoid being at times by the us meanwhile the top french diplomat says paris was a damascus to make it stockpiles public and will be taking the case to the un the us war machine will however continue to loom over syria but washington would overwhelmingly prefer not to pull the trigger that's according to. russia's latest initiative the us congress and the american public remain largely opposed to starting another conflicts in a chicken house in all this may be
a face saving moment for the obama administration because it's org humans for a military action against syria have been falling apart both in the international community and in the u.s. congress congress jumped on this washing proposal because they were being bombarded every day by their constituents who demand that they vote no to strikes against syria within hours after syria confirmed its willingness to get rid of chemical weapons the senate delayed the boulder strikes that was scheduled for later this week the president knowing that the house of representatives would most likely vote no on attacking syria was very vague about the prospects of the vote he said that i don't anticipate that you you would see a succession of votes this week or. any time. in the immediate future and so i think there will be time during the course of the debates here in the night of states for the international community the russians and the syrians to work with us to see is there a way to resolve this the obama administration's rhetoric has been confusing and
has raised lots of questions it is as it was building the case for strikes the u.s. wanted the support of the you when it would refuse to take classified evidence that washington supposedly has against the syrian leader to the us. the council also to u.s. lawmakers secretary of state john kerry would make arguments like if congress does not support strikes in syria u.s. allies saudi arabia and carter according to john kerry who would certainly fund the more extremist elements of the syrian opposition of course many ask what kind of an argument is that why are they even your allies if you admit that they're willing to fund terrorists we're almost used to this one day president obama says he has made his final decision on strikes the next day he says he has not made his final decision at a time when he has confused virtually everybody in the international community and among the american people and nobody knows where he's standing right now the president is still expected to try and sell the strikes against syria to the american people in his tuesday night address. zong press to avoid repeating the
mistakes of his predecessor who attacks iraq without few on approval and undoable turned out to be a full sprit text that's according to one of the architects of russian foreign policy and. there is if not panic definitely tension in washington concerning this decision statements that primeau acting on them are followed by new statements the u.s. seems to be having major trouble figuring out the policies that will be accepted by the international community america's own allies and global public opinion as well as that inside the us obama has found himself in a very difficult situation he is desperately trying to not become a copycat of his predecessor george w. bush he campaigned on promises to be bush's opposite and now he's walking down the very same road bush attacked iraq with the u.n.
sanctions and obama isn't likely to get them and he is deeply troubled by that because he campaigned that he would be a president of peace that's why he's desperate to get any legitimization for his actions and reactions from british journalist on the broadcast neil clark mr clark welcome to r.t. great to see you how likely is that massing is it to comply with the russian initiative does the syrian government have any alternatives that. well i think it's a very good move from syria and russia isn't it but i think we got to be very careful here because we've got to remember that libya gave up its chemical weapons in two thousand and four while we all know what happened to libya iraq gave up its w m d's and we want to what happened to iraq by contrast north korea didn't disarm hasn't surrendered a single weapon and north korea is still standing so i think if syria were to surrender its chemical weapons i think it needs to get a firm guarantee from russia that if there was an attack by america they would come
to their defense classic we need to deter the u.s. attack here. has made it clear the plans for a military strike are still in full force it is the russian initiative likely to stall them along or do you think well i think i think the washington elite is very divided i think obama is very hesitant but of course you've got the fanatical neocon lobby the people like john mccain and we all know this chemical weapons issue was all a pretext was a pretext you know the u.s. wants regime change in syria and that was just the first pretext that came along this month and they'll be another one coming along so even if syria does surrender its weapons then the danger is not over yet for syria because i'm sure that washington will come along and if you want to power your week's time and say look there's been another so-called atrocity carried out by the president saudi government and then we'll be back to square one again so i think the only the only thing that can stop the building of syria really is a serious defense pact with russia and iran trying to deter aggression i think that's the only thing that will stop this threat of war really. but still the u.s. public as well as
a lion's share of the lawmakers are still against. that intervention is that enough to deter an attack. at the white house. everyone's against this war you know everyone across the world except a tiny group of neo con fanatics these people are the people trying to push present a bomb or to war with syria they're desperate for regime change. because they want to target iran topple the reigning regime and these people are absolutely fanatics and no matter what syria does these people will still be targeting syria and yet you know things have changed there's been a slow global awakening as to the neocon agenda people have woken up after war after war after war people across the world are finally saying no no boer war and the elites in washington got this problem they would love to bring about regime change in damascus they really want that the only thing that could have been that about is war but the public are seventy eighty percent against war so they've got this big problem now the elites across the western world really what kind of action can we expect the syrian rebels to take in the meantime. i think there's
a real danger or false flag operation against israel now i think there's a real danger that it's clearly that the latest chemical weapons attack hasn't done the trick really as far as the war mongers are concerned nobody's really thought it was not like it is war at the moment as things stand so i think there's a real danger yuliya that there will be some kind of false flag attack there will be some attack on israel that blamed on hezbollah or sad and that would try to get congress there now if that happened that would be a game changer because you have a bomber coming out saying our strongest ally israel has been attacked we've got to do something now and that could. change congress' opinion which is a month looks and we're going to oppose war so i think we've got to be on the alert really for false flag operations and in the next few weeks or days even. british journalist sound broadcaster neil clark neil very much thank you very much indeed for your for sharing your insight with us thank you very much i appreciate it. thank you and now a number of sources told me that rebel forces are planning to launch
a provocation using chemical weapons against israel all she's policia is in tel aviv for. i've spoken to both the israeli foreign ministry is what is the army spokes persons units and i was asking them for they reaction to the reports we have that there is an imminent threat being planned by syrian rebels originating in territory in syria that is controlled by the syrian government against israel now the reaction was to quote one of the spokespeople for off aged the response was simply a refusal to comment as of yet no reaction in the israeli press it's difficult to say whether or not we expect such a reaction because very often this country is reluctant to come into publicly certainly the officials don't want to go on record giving any kind of statements of what is happening inside syria but the information we are getting and this is from sources that are close to what is happening on the ground in syria is that as i say this attack would have originated in a sad hole controlled territory but it will be carried out by the rebels and the
result of this is that the blame will be for me to put. regime now at the same time the important point to make is that there has been a report that has just been released by the leading israeli counterterrorist think tank and this report does talk about the possibility of unconventional weapons forming into the hands of terrorist groups inside syria israelis are concerned that chemical stockpiles will for you into quote the wrong hands of course ladies this really is the hands of hezbollah and although israeli officials have not in the past gone on record admitting this it's widely understood that israel has carried out at least four strikes inside syria at the weapon delivery supplies two to be his for the militants into the hizbullah organization of course israel would rather prefer a side stay in power there's no love lost between the two countries but it's almost like that old saying back to the devil you know than the devil you don't know from
the israeli side i want to also bring you attention to the information we're receiving from a belgian researcher who was recently released on the head and being held captive by syrian rebels inside that country and he was held by them for five months and he has say that he denying that the syrian president was responsible for this new toys and gas attack that took place on a village near damascus in which more than a thousand civilians when they took the gas today. dominik i don't have a moral duty to say that it's not the bash on assad government you sorry you or any other gas in the damascus suburbs guta was certain of that conversation we have heard even though it cost me to say because i've supported the free syrian army passionately and it's fair fight for democracy and. now this belgian national says he has this information because he overheard a conversation between his captors in which they said as much and that is that they were responsible for this attack but of course we'll stay on top of the situation
waiting to see if there's any kind of his radio official reaction to these reports . a potential weapons strike against this country. with america firmly putting the blame for any use of weapons of mass destruction on the sea when regime the u.s. national security adviser susan rice has also warned of a direct chemical threat to israel by terrorizing civilians creating even greater refugee flows and raising the risk that deadly chemicals would spill across borders into neighboring turkey jordan lebanon and iraq and obviously the use of chemical weapons also directly threatens our closest ally in the region israel where people once again have readied gas masks every time chemical weapons are moved unloaded and used on the battlefield it
raises the likelihood that these weapons will fall into the hands of terrorists active in syria including assad's ally hezbollah and al qaeda affiliates and defense consultant told my colleague kevin owen the reports of is row potentially being targeted by syrian rebels conason surprise. remember the rebels have stated previously from the beginning of this year that they're going to attack israel this been a stated goal from the beginning anyway and once they had achieved their objectives in syria they would have gone on to israel anyway. they couldn't some un observers in the golan heights earlier this year but israel underestimated the threat do you think so far oh yeah oh yeah because israel thought so that once assad leaves is going to be peace in the region they have underestimated the rebels
goal which was to start with syria and then go on to israel and other countries in the region. coming up pale analyses spend more on spending less the u.k. government some define it after the expense so it's the department's consing practices were revealed we're bringing you the details of the story shortly after the break. and if the main competitor girl on the market is mother nature. may customers struggle with to. fight for each draw from an old dirty supplier. let people think i am prices pure water. live on t.v.

a historic and as this account and explains the polls result echoes a steady trend across europe. two years ago norway suffered the worst massacre since world war two a brutal assault unleashed against a summer camp for young people claiming seventy seven lives the perpetrator was extreme rightist anders breivik who claimed to have political motivation for his atrocities at his trial he said he wanted to punish the ruling labor party for its liberal immigration policies and to start a so-called conservative revolution he was a member of the progress party in his youth before he lost faith in it and in democracy and adopted the radical and views that underpinned his act of terror the n.c.a. migration progress party saw sort of order crumble in the aftermath of the attack but as norwegians headed to the polls monday for the first parliamentary election since the tragedy the tables appear to have turned and the progress party is poised to enter government for the first time the party has since softened its radical
image and tried to distance itself from braving it it's campaigned for tougher immigration and asylum policies and wants to reduce the number of immigrants from outside the e.u. in the face of economic uncertainty and voters in some european countries have rallied behind a far right nationalist ideas a few of the parties that have emerged have grown more popular others much less so or not at all well since the financial crisis several e.u. countries including major european economies have seen a substantial rise of populist radical right electoral support let's take a closer look now in one of the biggest economies france after years of electoral decline marine le pen led the country's national front to its best ever results in the election of two thousand and twelve now some have claimed that xena phobia is still one of the country's party's trademarks although she has tried to soften the party's image since the more radical program of the one nine hundred ninety s. well belong to austria the freedom party of austria has focused on anti immigration
anti islam and euro skeptic issues is even called for a withdrawal from the euro zone. and we've gone to the true finns in finland they may share populist rhetoric with other nordic parties its supporters to are opposed to the e.u. and globalism now the party leader hundreds sieved the highest number of personal votes for any candidate in the party has one thousand percent of the seats in parliament well the movement for a better hungry entered parliament for the first time three years ago now the group describes itself as a radically patriotic christian party but it's described in a local pressed as neo fascist and in the far right national alliance brings together a coalition of conservatives ethno nationalists and economic liberals with fourteen seats in the legislature it's the country's fourth largest political party now at the same time some of the countries which do have notable far right parties there is a fairly even split between those that have seen an increase in support and those which
haven't and as you can see right here support for right wing movements has gone down now in some ways the growth of right wing parties has been cyclical in europe some tend to gain power during economic downturns and fade during periods of growth but with economic stagnation continuing on the continent it remains to be seen what will happen to these political groups who see. moscow. while undergoing tough economic challenges the british government has made attempts to counter calls by cutting jobs but it's spent huge amounts of money doing so millions of pounds of pay to independent consultants to oversee the pros puts a huge waste of money that's particularly the time when one is looking to point savings we can't continue on with a culture of prophecy and forgetting who is actually picking up the bill this time spies who picking up the bill taxpayers who may be having to balance their own budgets and looking at what they can afford. so data from the covenants office

a club for the actions of individual fans this is the same logic as if someone wearing a sexy tim kirby t. shirt went around robbing liquor stores i am not responsible for the actions of people like this program and it's not like i'd ever advocate robbing liquor stores and i doubt the shocked your management secretly arranged for fans to slaughter the sheep at the stadium where the slaughter of animals is acceptable to you or not well that's one thing but we don't need to regulate the morality of individuals of other countries via soccer especially if that regulation means punishing the football clubs who aren't responsible for the actions of individuals but that's just my opinion. right see. first strike. and i think you're. on our reporters with.
