the global grid has characterized the raids provocation and warned it will react swiftly if cos if it was serbs are threatened that breakaway territories authorities insist however that the operation was aimed only at tackling organized crime and smuggling rings to you and employees were also detained during in mission serbia lost control over kosovo after a nato intervention in 1990 just not recognize its 2008 declaration of independence let's go through all the quarter joins me live in the studio for more on that hi don as afternoon turns into evening no there we've been covering this for the last few hours how do things stand well the tensions began like you said with serbia after kosovo special police was deployed into this majority serb region of northern coast of all now the serbian president alexander has put the
military on full alert saying that $23.00 people were arrested mostly serbs and bosniaks while kosovo authorities put that number at 30 actually one serbian official marko jaric says that the raid was aimed at intimidating serbs in kosovo but the cost of a prime minister. didn't deny says that it was part of an anti smuggling an anti organized crime operation in the area kosovo further urged ethnic serbs in the area to support the police claiming that this fight is the path to further integration with the west and nato urged all parties to remain calm at the same time taking kosovo side in this deal. with the police operation was conducted over the whole to retrieve kosovo not just to move north and differently was aimed at subiaco it was aimed at fighting against crime and corruption another aspect to this don we've been reporting that u.n. officials were arrested what about the. right the un actually released
a statement about it saying that 2 employees at the u.n. mission in kosovo war arrested and later hospitalized the statement also threatened legal responses if any more harm were to be done. any harm to united nations star will be met with the highest degree of diplomatic and international legal responses and one of the detained personnel was russian but he's already been released to the russian foreign ministry called his detention a blatant provocative provocation as the employee was had diplomatic immunity at the time and maria is a hot of the spokeswoman of the foreign ministry said that this is only going to lead to escalate in tensions in the region. it is obvious to such a provocative behavior by kosovo is the result of u.s. and e.u. long term policies of indulgence tour of them because of very leaders they're used to being excused everything such steps lead to the ask a lesion of the ethnic tensions and makes efforts of the international community for the post conflict regulation completely useless. there's
a deep history to all this is there really is a fractured. tell us more about the long standing on the moss the i know you could be here for quite a while but just the mean aspects of well you know these. tensions in the region seriously worsened after nato was bombing of yugoslavia in 1909 and separatist insurgency came to power in kosovo afterwards and declared independence in 2008 now that to this day the serbian government doesn't recognize that declaration and they consider nato's intervention in the region breach of international law. the full amount of the republic. now earlier today serbia did
warn the european union that the government will active kosovo special police has not withdrawn from this region so that was quite a bit a long time ago the special police are still there so perhaps we'll see some international reactions in the next in the coming hours a lot of players in this don't do keep us up to date or tease doll of course with the latest. let's move on to more world news this hour donald trump is encouraging japan to increase its military capability the us president who's in tokyo japan could help the u.s. defend against threats in the asia pacific unquote beyond america's vice president mike pence touched on those perceived threats to during a speech at the elite military academy west point only put trinkle picks up i learned. you will fight on a battlefield for america some point your life if you didn't notice the words in the background that was mr vice president talking to the graduates of a top class u.s.
military academy and that wasn't it how do you like this degree of certainty it is a virtual certainty that you will fight on a battlefield for america some point your life. you will lead soldiers in combat. you will have so what is the 2nd most important official in the country trying to make clear by that the good old boots on the ground will certainly be on the way to quite a few different places after all come on no one in this world would dare to send an army against america to put up a fight there nobody will realistically send soldiers to attack the superpower of all superpowers and so men and women of west point no matter where you're deployed . you will be the vanguard of freedom here they are the future of basters of freedom you look at their faces and frankly it doesn't seem they're in raptures
over what mr pence is saying but let's hear where in the world we might expect to see a boost in freedom in the days to come some of you will join the fight against radical islamic terrorists in afghanistan. and iraq oh these are familiar places where the pro says so to say began a while ago soon it will be 20 years any more destinations some of you will join the fight in europe where an aggressive russia seeks to redraw international boundaries by force probably in this area it's a bit of an exaggeration that the graduates will find themselves on a battlefield taking part in nato as big war games there that's more like it. i i. well at least for
now it's only been in the form of drills for now and finally the most curious part and some of you may even be called busy upon to serve. in this hemisphere it won't be rocket science for you to figure out where the boots on the ground money to be marching off to next in the western hemisphere then then as you well off where for the white house it's a classic all options are on the table plus we heard from the opposition big guy there. he wouldn't mind at all well donald trump is also going head to head with us intelligence services he is demanding they declassify the origins of the motor investigation which looked into alleged collusion with russia we should point out the special counsel's 2 year probe phoned no evidence of criminal conspiracy between the trump campaign the russian government during the 2016 presidential election our senior correspondent dia has been looking at how the mass media has
shifted its bounds on whether the us president can question the activity of the intelligence services or not. the thing with spies with all this secrets and power and egos is that it really seems to goo to their heads and honestly how can you blame them they are literally be yawned public scrutiny anyone tries to stick their nose in you just stamp everything that's classified and loudly denounce them as unpatriotic see it as a very very serious and outrageous move on the part of mr trump once again trampling upon the statutory authorities of the director of national intelligence and the heads of the independent intelligence agencies how dead trump what true american would ever question why they're being wiretapped and spied upon good thing
america has m.s.m. be she true patriots hired mr brennan full time so he can vent his frustrations for everyone to hear of course to do that m.s.n. b.c. had to sacrifice their principles and integrity president obama said today he still stands by his cia chief john brennan even though it turns out the cia was indeed spying on the senate and some senators are calling for brennan to be fired now just to be clear that was in 2014 when they weren't on the same side then spying on everyone you own elected leaders included was considered dubious these is 2019 and the word spying is now considered politically incorrect it offends people who say people who secretly eavesdrop and record and film everyone agents the good guys. a talking point from the
president and those around him telling congress buying did occur on the trump campaign it's a loaded word stupid. the implications of using that word does not trump favorite new word and the trump media's favorite new word. senate intelligence chair dianne feinstein accuse brennan cia of secretly tracking the senate's investigation into one of the worst abuses in recent cia history and now factor in this huge new scandal the fact that brennan cia was spying on members of congress the cia was spying on the senate intelligence committee basically busting into their computers but i give m s n b c too much credit or others to washington post gave brennan his column where he publishes pieces with nubile noble titles i will speak out until integrity returns to the white house promises well done washington
post it takes courage to set aside what you believe in to go back on your word but again it's been 5 years who remembers things like that right the guardian same thing. cia director john brennan lied to you on to the senate fired him. why is donald trump attacking the u.s. intelligence community surprisingly brandon isn't working for the guardian yet one by one though the pundits and the seeing wrong from right the question is are they going to demand brennan's resignation or accountability within the cia patriotic answer by the way is no holding the cia accountable would be to put secret agents do top secret stuff and drink martinis and add things and carry out
special secret missions i didn't see anything improper on lawful and yes james clapper brennan's former boss is now a c.n.n. employee. e a tell you this every true american can be proud of their a brave brave people watch over you and record everything you do or say they and night whether you wanted or not and if times or politics change in 5 years who will remember it ever happened. well i bring attention to this as well because it's not only donald trump stance on the activity of u.s. intelligence services scrutiny in the media but also his quotes are not his as the case may be a fake quote attributed to the president has gone viral on social media some are now using it as a prime example of false news counts bread. president
trump talks from joining the smarter and would make it by the president and sleepy joe biden. done shrug your shoulders don't get used to this insanity the president of the united states praising a cruel dictator violates human rights 3 nuclear attacks a class of his people in fields political opponents is not freaking normal does this window trust became our president was it when you kowtow to putin and house thank you. ian bremmer now admits that he made
a completely ludicrous quite the trip beaching it to me this is what's going on in the age of fake news people think they can say anything and get away with it really the my below should be changed the whole fake news media accounts of. you to spreading misinformation thinking that has proven something he's proven that he's not true either source of information entry now to the press about them even as a needle. more busy world news in a minute and a half stay with us. you know world big partisan movie 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 on the bath and shouting past each other that it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. will make this manufactured consent to step into the public wealth. when the ruling class is protect themselves. when the fine and merry go round lifts only the one percent. we can all middle of the room signal. room the real news is really low.
it's approaching 80 minutes into the program welcome back teachers in finland have expressed concern over muslim students fasting during the holy month of ramadan they claim it affects the students' concentration during classes. ramadan is noticeable due increasing sidey never do school life we cannot 1st feature nor give injections with nutrients we can do is advise parents not to force children to fast fasting for young children can be successful at home not at school without food yeah this year ahead of ramadan authorities in a southern finnish city called on schools not to observe the fast some institutions have reportedly been offering water and extended breaks as well to muslim students or ramadan which ends on monday is the most sacred month in the muslim calendar people abstain from food and drink from sunrise until sunset it's considered to be a period of purification on the 4th keep of islam and well politicians in
germany including the health minister a calling for a more compatible form of islam to be promoted to preserve european traditions and culture instead of tolerating symbols of a reactionary missal journalistic form of islam we must promote the development of a european islam which shares our values in order to preserve our free european way of life or when we discussed this earlier the crux of the matter really kim down to that line between faith and flexibility. central principles of the stomach faith are non-negotiable in this same where the jewish community won't be told what they can or cannot believe and i think that's a really dangerous precedent is being crossed your of this war on islam which is about demonizing and taking away the rights of muslims to practice their faith finished. sensibly do run the best education system in the world with their liberal
nordic mind decided that they wanted to help muslim kids out a little bit and are trying to inject a little bit of liberalism and a little bit of tolerance into people who otherwise should know better there is so called liberal societies like the scandinavian countries who talk about liberalism who talk of our individual freedom of speech and if you do a choice but in reality you want to restrict that for one section of society another thing that's deeply wrong if you go to tampa and you meet the finnish muslims and my kids are half inish you will see that they are very accustomed very tribal eyes come from a certain culture and tradition they're not used to having open dialogue integration liberal tolerant values which came from the islamic traditions to europe in the 1st place so muslims do need to change they need to get back to a key understanding of what islam is what islam isn't and we need to get our house in order because muslims have got problems to deal with there is a wide discussion to be had you know the muslims are very passionate about practicing their faith and we've got to ensure that we educate our fellow citizens
who are not muslim about the benefits but also about the challenges of fasting look i think whether it's the issue of fasting whether receive the headscarf whether it's the any other range of issues when we're talking about how islam co-exists there's a lot of debate a lot of pressure on how do muslims whether they assimilate or whether they integrate the key point here is about tolerance it's about respect and for muslims it's about returning to the prophetic way which is one of tolerance of spectrum multi-faith coexistence and i can raise an. the islam you see today i'm not saying people should go to hard manichean issue but we need to learn the value of tolerance and liberalism back from the europeans who took it from us in the 1st place and the islam that people are trying to move back to north sure that's the way it should be. after european elections left the house of brussels fragmented leaders are in the belgian capital for talks and who's going to lead the bloc forward centrist and establishment parties to remind you were dealt
a bloody nose in the vote many countries right across the blocks or right wing the greens liberal functions as well top the polls on the charlotte cuban ski reports there was no shortage of political drama in the run up either. for months pundits have been predicting a rise in anti establishment parties ahead of the e.u. elections afterwards they were right but across the bloc in the weeks leading up to the vote panic was setting in and let's be clear that panic wasnt without ground scandals emerged all reemerged in a timely fashion. take malkin look 10 days before france headed to the polls the e.u. top court ordered her to pay back 300000 euros to the european parliament this followed a case in which the national rally had been accused of paying an aide incorrectly
but the timing felt off it was almost as if it was a way to tell voters that her party just couldn't be trusted that came hot on the heels of accusations that former trump strategist steve bannon was actually the one pulling all the pens strings yet the public didn't seem to care and the national rally still talked the polls hate in france other scandals that were rife in the media included one russians well at least the alleged russians no shock there but of course not a single troll in sight. it was of course. the party which was in coalition. people's party found itself under the spotlight not for its potentially dubious policies but for a good old cash influence gambit. revici's
. he. there was even an attempt to drag le pen's name into the thick gate as it became known a few months ago marine le pen was singing the praises of austrian vice chancellor heinz christian straka saying how formidable he was struck as being forced to resign we find out why he was trying to sell his services to foreign forces behind this nationalist movement is a submission to foreign forces despite this the f p o still managed to pick up just over 17 percent of the vote in austria. there was also of course the elections very. to moment one swedish democrats candidate accused the other of sexual harassment and even though this scandal washed away it didn't hamper the anti immigration party's performance they
increased their share of the vote to more than 50 percent. and despite merkel. a warning that populist parties wanted to destroy europe 2 we are haring to deal with populist movements that in many areas are contemptuous of our of fail use and want to destroy the europe of the valleys we represent we have to stand up to this these parties significantly increase their representation in many parts of the e.u. sex money the long loam of washington reaching for controlling europe nothing seemed to put voters off seeking something new what is clear from the results of these elections is that the old god could no longer count on the masses to support them implying face what europeans want is something different it seems but godless won't that is show that people ski auti paris white so i thought our fricken

news feed that were too conservative and now and then we inject a story that we saw it was really cool. the facebook founder mark zuckerberg says he's committed to giving everyone a voice he's from responding to an allegation that facebook edits conservative views out of its trending topics they can suppress certain types of results based on what they think you should be seeing based on what your followers are presenting now a new report claims that according to a former facebook employee the social media mega company sometimes ignores what is actually trending among its 1000000000 users if this story originated from a conservative news source or if it's a topic causing buzz among conservatives. facebook costly manipulates or users they do it by the things that they insert into the news they do it by the types of posts they allow their users to see and the fact that they actually
decided to do psychological experiments on the users is something that i think a lot of people need to really fully understand and they were doing it based upon the fact. different things that people posted they want to see how other people would react to a. health watch why your facebook friends post can have a direct effect on your mood your research shows the more negative post you see the more negative you could become. so if for example let's say somebody wanted to post something that was on the news feed that was a very negative story they want to see how their users would react via their likes by their statements for their posts and they would show people who already had a predilection to maybe having some depression or maybe having some other issues in their lives and they can figure that out based upon your like space upon your connections based upon where you're going and what they want to do is take that information and then use it to basically weaponize this information against their users so that way their users could see different things that may affect their mood
and may affect how they interact with others and that's something that is highly unethical it appears that some young people may have been so affected by this that they may have done harm to themselves based upon what they saw on their facebook feed and it was all because it is experiments the things that we have no standing with facebook we're not citizens of facebook we have no blood on facebook it's not a democracy it is this process is not a way we can design the future we can't rely on this single company to invent our digital future. there's there's what i call the creepy line and the google policy about a lot of these things is to get right up for the creepy line but not cross at google crosses the creepy line every day. not only does google cross the creepy line the location of that line you keep shifting.
