3:05 pm
looks at how the mass media have shifted their stance on whether the us president can question the activities of the us intelligence services 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 and he wouldn't 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.n. be she true patriots this is the bread and full time so you can vent his

3:07 pm
president and those around him telling congress buying did occur on the trump campaign it's a loaded word to know ready 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 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

putting you to spreading misinformation thinking that has proven something he's proven that he's not to are both source of information and should not out of the trust of again even his immediate cuts. so he has put his military on full alert after kosovo send special police units into the contested republics dominated north arresting a number of individuals suspected of criminal activities. serbia characterized the raids as a provocation and warned it will react swiftly of kosovo's threatened the breakaway territories authorities insist though that the operation was aimed only at tackling organized crime and smuggling rings to u.n. employees were also detained during the raids said the lost control of a cost of i offer a nato intervention in 999 and refuses to recognize its 2008 declaration of

3:13 pm
will into exile but the cost while prime minister. didn't deny says that it was part of an anti smuggling and organized crime operation in the area kosovo further urged ethnic serbs in the 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 hole to retrieve closer notice to move north and differently was an aim bits. yes it was aimed at fighting 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 threatened legal responses if any more harm were to be done any harm to united nations stoffel 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
3:14 pm
a lot of the foreign ministry spokeswoman said that this is only going to lead to escalating 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 union 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
3:15 pm
consider nato's intervention in the region breach of international law. 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 the serbian journalist told us more about how great views the course of the police operation and outline what he believes the implications could be. everybody in serbia believes that this was yet another attempt to intimidate and put pressure on the serbian minority which lives in the
3:16 pm
north and also possibly to renew the of the authority or the integrity of the leaders of course of all who have seen a number of said backs in their attempt to gain independence because a number of countries around the world have a withdrawn their recognition of course also they needed to do something to show that they are actually in charge in the whole of territory of course the way including the north where there serbs leave the worst consequence of this action is that there will be more fear among the serbian population there will be more uncertainty about the future and you know if they decide to leave the north of course civil serbia will have less arguments to try to reclaim it in any way. up to the elections left the house of brussels fragmented e.u. leaders are in the belgian capital for talks on who will lead the bloc forward centrist and establishment parties were dealt a bloody nose in the parliamentary vote many countries saw right wing green and
3:17 pm
liberal factions topple poles at a shelter do you now reports there was no shortage of political drama in the run up either. for months pundits have been predicting a rise in anti establishment policies ahead of the e.u. elections after once 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 make wasn't without scandals emerged all reemerged in a timely fashion. take martin penn days before fronts headed to the polls each 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
3:18 pm
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 pen strings yet the public didn't seem to care and the national rally still talked the polls here 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 if. 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 says 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 a very. 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
3:20 pm
than 50 percent. and despite merkel cornett our warning that populist 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 charlotte to ski r.t. paris. malaysia is mounting
3:21 pm
a fight against illegal imports of contaminated non-recyclable plastics the environment minister pledged on tuesday to ship $3000.00 metric tons of waste back to their countries of origin including the united states britain france and japan. with the mega star must see the sign malaysia has been awash with way since china stop importing millions of tonnes of plastics from the developed world last year much of it's been finding its way to other southeast asian countries the malaysian environment minister insisted her country world no longer be browbeaten into accepting the rubbish. whoever that send their ways to malaysia where the ways where those plastic ways are whatever ways we will send it back and we will fight back even though we are small country we cannot be bullied by a developed countries. malaysia isn't the 1st country to declare it'll push back against the influx of rubbish either the philippines announced this week it plans to return 69 containers of garbage to canada 3 years canada's refused to allow the
3:22 pm
shipment of household waste to be returned after it was delivered to a port in the philippines but as the dispute escalated the filipino president declared that if canada didn't act quickly he would dump the rubbish in canadian waters will declare war against canada we can take them down i'll return the trench just wait and see i will advise canada that your government is on the way to play a grant reception even if you want to environmental campaigner george barda describes the offloading of rubbish on to 3rd world countries as free trade to dirty secret so the wind a phenomenon and this is part of his work is what's known by some as waste colonialism and the really dirty secret of so-called free trade is that it's free for corporations to do what the how they like but there is very little freedom for . poor countries that are often the subject of this you know these toxic arrivals to do anything about it after china announced
3:23 pm
a ban on imports of plastics at the end of 2017 that neighboring countries in asia philippines. now become the dumping grounds for that country for that waste and the depressing thing is there seems to be no evidence whatsoever that countries like the u.k. are doing any kind of follow up to make sure that that waste is being treated in a in a remotely responsible way virtually no there's no inspection of that regulations. teachers in finland have expressed concern over muslim pupils 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 or hindus advice parents not to force children to fast fasting for young children can be successful at home not at school without food this year ahead of ramadan authorities in a southern finnish city called of schools not to observe the fast and some
3:24 pm
institutions have reportedly been offering water and extended breaks to muslim students ramadan which is expected to end next tuesday is the most sacred month in the muslim calendar people abstain from food and drink from sunrise to sunset is considered to be a period of purification in the 4th of islam. meanwhile politicians in germany including the health minister recording for more compatible form of islam to be promoted to preserve european traditions and 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 when we discussed it all earlier on r.t. the crux of the row 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
3:25 pm
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 individual freedom of speech and if you do a choice but in reality you want to restrict that for one section of society and i think 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
3:26 pm
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 practice you know and we've got to ensure that we educate our fellow citizens who are not was 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 issues when we're talking about how islam. co-exists there is 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 a respectable multi-faith co-existed you can i can raise an issue in the islam you see today i'm not there saying people should go on 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 are not sure that's the way it should be. with
