11:04 am
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 all wear for the white house it's a classic all options are on the table plus we heard from the opposition big guy there one of wide oh he wouldn't mind at all. donald trump is also going head to head with u.s. intelligence services he's the mountain thing they did classify the origins of the
11:05 am
mole or investigation which looked into alleged collusion with russia a reminder the special counsel is to europe probe fund no evidence of criminal conspiracy between the trump campaign on the russian government during the 2016 presidential election our senior correspondent iraq as the looks at how the mass media has shifted its stance 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 beyond public scrutiny and you wouldn't tries to stick their nose in you just stamp everything this 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
11:06 am
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. 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
11:07 am
2019 and the word spying is now considered politically incorrect it offends people whose 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 has now gone trump's 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
11:08 am
their computers but i give m s n b c too much credit or others to washington post gave brennan his own 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 fire 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
11:09 am
going to demand brennan's resignation or accountability within the cia patriotic answer by the way is no holding the cia accountable would be sure to put a secret agents do top secret stuff and drink martinis and had things and carry out special secret missions do you know i didn't see anything improper on lawful and yes james clapper brennan's former boss is now a c.n.n. employee i'll 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 want it or not and if times or politics change in 5 years no one will remember it ever happened. serbia has put its military on full alert after kossovo sent special police units
11:10 am
into the contested republic serb dominated north arresting a number of individuals suspected of quote criminal activities. the. courage to rise the raids as a provocation and warranted will react swiftly of kosovo serbs or threatened the breakaway territories authorities insist however that the operation was aimed only at tackling organized crime and smuggling rings to un employees are also detained during the mission serbia lost control over. well after a nato intervention in 1909 and does not recognize its 2008 that the ration of independence artie's quarter spoke to me earlier by jews they flare up. tensions with serbia suddenly spiked earlier today after kosovo special police was

deployed into a serb majority busy region of northern kosovo now serbian president alexander has put the military on high alert he's saying that 23 people were arrested mostly serbs and bosniaks while kosovo authorities are saying that number is at 30 serbia's deputy director of the office of kosovo says that this was this raid was actually an act of intimidation against serbs a day's action you know where there are. very dangerous section of. another provocation unfortunately one of the many in the long line of acts similar to this the only one and the mean. that is to frighten serbs living in the north of course the way into exile 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 the
11:12 am
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 an aim bits it was aimed to try to get against crime and corruption the u.n. 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 threatens legal responses if any more harm or to be done any harm to united nations staf will be met with the highest degree of diplomatic and international. legal responses one of the detained personnel was a russian but he's already been released the russian foreign ministry called his detention a blatant provocation as as the employee had diplomatic immunity marias a hot of the foreign ministry spokeswoman said that this is only going to lead to escalating tensions in the region it is obvious to such
11:13 am
a provocative behavior by kosovo is the result of u.s. and e.u. long term policies of indulgence tour of them close a very leaders they're used to being excused average thing 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 me and 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.
11:14 am
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. be to welcome onto the program serbian canadian film director producer and screenwriter boris. good to have your company the costs if in authority say this was a long planned operation that took place across the republic and was not aimed at any particular ethnic group what do you make of the claim well 1st of all.
11:15 am
the group that was largely targeted by has so cooperation against the crime in the in this because who serve are the who's who here you have 20. 3rd who are arrested some are tourists leisure. is the series of incidents i. will forces who lost their regular this morning so it doesn't make much sense to say that for our target when you see the numbers show they were well they don't try to back that off the foreign ministry of course of oh by saying that $15.00 to $30.00 arrests where cost of oil being eons and bosniaks. well it's important to note that the so-called prime minister of so-called what was supposed to run we are only a couple of months ago admitted that coastal it was not to form their own foreign
11:16 am
policy and if you look at what they did was ours to serve not just now but only in the past couple of months as well or terms of imposing terrorists on certain products harassing service in various ways sitting sir this can only be a continuation of such policy and the fact is it would somehow be on the side as well. and to cover up the real intent of this whole operation there are one thing reconsider the ition efforts between serbia and kosovo going on with the build up on the border by serbia so many do you fear that could could lead to a power a keg situation there and is it an overreaction. well obviously everybody in our region is always worried whenever there's talk of military involvement has a long history of war and conflict but if you look at the written word solution that was completely sabotaged by christina the fall government and the so-called
11:17 am
public of cosmo but also by western countries which has been undermining the spotless from day one you have to this is this relation where so-called brussels agreements with there are fully implemented by the cost of all being inside syria has implemented the provision from the room christine has not there has been 0 effort to do so instead they're hearing the relations between serbs and albanians then this fight through the best effort i must say ringback to. provide us with your peace in the region they have been undermined and i have i don't want to say that regime is doing this i do believe that needle countries are behind this escalation because they are the ones who are running the show and cope with not because all they need they're doing you know doing what they're told ok thanks for your thoughts this summer when speaking to serbian canadian film director producer of the screenwriter boris moloch whiskey. where back in moments with more world

11:19 am
again now after european elections left the heiser brussels fragmented leaders are in the belgian capital for talks on who will lead the bloc forward busy just to remind you centrist the stablished own party were dealt a bloody nose in the vote many countries across the bloc saw it right wing green liberal factions topped the polls down
11:20 am
a shallow dubinsky reports there was no shortage of political drama in the run up either. pundits have been predicting a rise in an. establishment parties ahead of the e.u. elections afterwards they were wrong but across the bloc in the weeks leading up to the vote panic was setting in and let's be clear that panic was and without ground scandals emerged all reemerged in a timely fashion. take a 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 8 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
11:21 am
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 front of the 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 . there was even an attempt to drag le
11:22 am
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 strong 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 own 2 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 15 percent.
11:23 am
and despite merkel. warning the populous parties wanted to destroy europe 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 values 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 arm 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 guard could no longer count on the masses to support them in blind faith what europeans want is something different it seems a godless want that is show it to r.t. paris. to a story generating a lot of interest teachers in finland of expressed concern over muslim students
11:24 am
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 of 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. yet this year ahead of ramadan authorities in the southern finnish city called on schools not to observe the 1st and some institutions are reportedly been offering water extended bricks to muslim students 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 their 4th keeper of islam meanwhile politicians in germany including the health minister calling for a more compatible form of islam to be promoted to preserve european traditions and
11:25 am
culture instead of tolerating symbols of a reactionary missile 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. well when we discussed this earlier the crux of the row really came down to the line between faith and flexibility the 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
11:26 am
who talk of 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 is 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. 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 look i think whether it's the issue of fasting whether receive the headscarf whether it's the any other range of
11:27 am
issues when we're talking about how islam co-exists 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 foremost. it's about returning to the prophetic way which is one of tolerance respect. coexistence and i can raise an issue the islam you see today i'm not saying people should get a hard manichean issue but we need to learn that values 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. delving into the subtle manipulations that go into a simple all mining search pretty extraordinary detail to our documentary creeping life is next. after the previous stage of my career was over everyone wondered what i was going to do next the ball different clubs on one hand it is logical to sit in the home
11:28 am
field where everything is familiar on the other i wanted a new challenge and a fresh perspective from i'm used to surprising people and i saw one all to give you. i'm going to talk about football not for you or else you think i was going to go. by the way ways of the fly here. this footage is unique because the zoe tribal lands are normally off limits to the public eric's allowed in because he's the c.e.o. is personal doctor. the people here know him simply as dr eric
11:29 am
he's rich and famous some always on the move saving yachts and flying aircraft that it's. all. he's considered one of the best neurosurgeons in brazil. with all that's happening amazon. all orders so since going out of the busy when nothing is going to do the population nothing much is going to. people. is this a realistic prospect in 10 years and you understand why it kind of creeps people out of the especially i think there's there's what i call the creepy line and the
11:30 am
policy about a lot of these things is to get right up to the creepy line but not cross it i would argue that implanting things in your brain is beyond the creepy line of yes at least for the moment.
