decision is biased. it's pretty much a death sentence for international law this is a textbook case of. a clear violation of both the un resolution twelve forty four and all the accepted norms of international law on asli was expecting a more nuanced decision along the lines of it was illegal but it doesn't matter i quite honestly didn't expect the world court to take such a directly pro-american position to be perfectly honest kosovo is a much independent does manchukuo vichy france was in world war two it's a puppet state it suffers from and democrat abuses of power is its government structure can be best described as a organized crime is not a state in any way shape or form just because the us state department says it is a doesn't mean it is a case of course it was just a naked land grab and if it's allowed to stand in serbia itself may actually soon

fall apart and disappear. as a country cannot afford to simply let this slide for the past twenty years there have been wars and conflicts in the balkans stemming from the collapse of yugoslavia and each time there was any sort of dispute the serbs turned out to be on the losing end and the principles that the so-called international community adopted along the way varied according to the needs of the moment there's no principle here really that can consistently apply over the past twenty years except the serbs always lose and that's clearly not a principle you can build a policy on. leaving it to israel now an hour of man has been sentenced to eighteen months for rape by deception so barker sure tricked a woman into having sex with him by claiming to be jewish what he plans to appeal the decision and as r.t. has paula say reports evil couples who choose to have interfaith relationships face hostility. this jewish jerusalem suburb is surrounded by arab neighborhoods and far

from cultivating a culture of tolerance vigilante style jewish patrol groups calling themselves fire for judaism stand watch outside the local shopping mall their mission to prevent arab men mixing with local jewish girls the municipality has created a twenty four hour hotline where parents and friends can phone to rat on jewish schools breaking this to boot a specially trained team of counselors and psychologists is on standby to rescue them from war. it's important to save our traditions culture history and identity because without the use we from my experience we can see that the chances for a healthy relationship between an easy really jewish woman and an arab man very very low it's because of the great differences between these two cultures but the most recent case involves an arab man who posed as a jewish bachelor a jewish woman agreed to have sex with him but after she found out he was an arab
11:05 am
and not a jew she filed a police complaint the courts took the case so seriously that he's now being convicted of rape by deception and same tools to eighteen months of president the judge said he had an obligation to protect the public funds of the state of criminals who could no innocent victims but reactions to the verdict differ i think if the women want to do it it's story blog a lot different it's our belief or more of a because something you usually do is girls don't know where their guys. unless it's a choice you know. there should be a choice. delivered yes but in prison is too much and this is the way that this conflict is ruining our personal lives that we cannot have relationships that we cannot be just human being arabs make up a fifth of israel's population but relationships between arabs and jews are rare former palestinian minister. says fights break out almost weekly in nightclubs and other public places over the issue it's not religion he says it's racism there are

jewish gangsters which are against. the relations between jewish. hunting jewish. those who can go out to a bar bored. with another guy threaten them and force them to break. in the two years rami who are here and keep in touch her have been together they've never been physically threatened he's muslim she's jewish but they're not thinking about leaving israel because they say it's simply too difficult on other levels and when my family found out they were very adamant about cutting me off on every level . for acting as a traitor to everybody and being in israel and shit and making that choice right now israeli parliamentarians are considering a law that would require prospective israeli citizens to declare loyalty to israel
11:07 am
as a jewish democratic state i would be israelis are furious most refuse to swear allegiance to a state they believe explicitly excludes and marginalizes them police here are t. jeff. well joining me now from a tell of the to discuss this further is than a poor girl the head of the noga center for victims of crime on the academic college many thanks for joining us here on r.t.l. surely this is just a simple case of racism against sure. i'm not so sure about it personally i think that this case has been blown out of propose entirely because the court emphasized the fact that sure prison to him says to be a single when he was married much northern the court to emphasize the fact that you claim to be jewish and the real question is whether then should be a phrase no to the small white line is what exactly does this now mean that under
11:08 am
israeli law where everything i'm a man tells a woman he loves her in order to sleep with her he faces charges of rape. well that's the real question here and it's not on the people who are is nothing like that deal since afraid that by deception was inherited by. little and started actually in the british many years ago and it's just a supreme court in that case why the limits of the criminal and no even the for all regarding relating to day didn't have to men may lead to criminal charges no this doesn't supposed to happen i don't think that this case we open the floodgates of treatment of the criminal code because there are some natural barriers the woman would go to the police station tomorrow and say like you
11:09 am
just said somebody told me that he loved me and he didn't really i think should be kicked out of the police station because prosecution will be brought into the courtroom it has to be remembered that case started as a regular rape case it did not start to the rape section his defense attorney asked the trial was going on for a while his defense attorney agreed to a plea agreement and he himself agreed to do this so this search for a by deception well most of the. dollars he's a son i do think that this ruling would have been different for say a jewish man who pretended to be an arab in order to have sex with an arab woman in israel. i don't think if it was brought into court i don't think it would have been different the first. steer was
11:10 am
also a jewish of a prominent jewish person who misled very poor jewish or non jewish women into believing that he would develop them financially and they had sex with him and he was charged and who was sentenced to twelve years in prison and he was jewish so you don't think it's a racist thing to say do you think that this ruling is really about protecting people from cry or is it more about cementing in the law divisions in israeli society i don't think think it was maybe going too far in the direction of trying to protect women against having sex should relationships with anyone. ok if i now know. sorry the head of the notice had to victims of crime at the all no academic college did it perhaps many thanks for speaking to us. ok investigators say poor

well that's a business song usually uncertain was how ben bernanke you describe the prospects for the world's biggest economy the response by the financial markets to the federal reserve chief testimony has been mixed as his comments feel fears about the strength of the global recovery but in a culture of reports. ben bernanke is testimony did little to reassure the financial markets about the durability of the global economic recovery growth on the one hand he declared there was little probability of the recession returning but on the other his says it's a number of first factors including high unemployment and the weak housing market an important drag on household spending is the slow recovery in the labor market and the attendant uncertainty about job prospects after two years of job losses private payrolls expanded at an average of about one hundred thousand per month during the first half of this year a pace insufficient to reduce the unemployment rate materially the chairman said the central bank stooge ready to further east monetary policy if they would cut

11:25 am
to try and demonstrate to the market about who is going to be strong and who's going to be weak in trying to get a sense of how is the european banking system actually been holding up through this crisis so that's all tomorrow on this is what the key focus point is indeed going to be how is that going to potentially impact the markets well i think with what we have to realize is that there's been a number of officials coming out over recent days suggesting that. the banks in respective countries seem to be good shape in that they're going to pass. these stress tests there's been a couple of banks saying that they could possibly fail but perhaps the market already had a good feeling for this those type of failure candidates i think really perhaps is going to line up to be somewhat of a nonevent i mean we will have to digest the overall news through the course of the weekend to try to get a feel of you know how much banks the european banks may need to recapitalize. but in terms of it being a big market mover for the euro i'm
11:26 am
a little bit skeptical at this at this juncture what will be the consequence is if all shown to be weaker than thought. well if it did turn out to be pessimistic report in a somewhat surprising. i think the at least from a turn see perspective what you see happening is you see a flight to safety that is the likes of the and in probably the swiss franc would hold up quite well versus the euro you might even see the dollar actually trying to rally somewhat versus the euro as well so reversing some of the gains which we saw today but i think that the fact that it's coming out quite late tomorrow are scheduled to be then we're going to be in a bit of a holding pattern and it might not be until monday where we start to see a bigger reaction and if this stronger in a word. well then i think the market will breathe a sigh of relief and that maybe things are just not as bad as what maybe some people were thinking or were fearing i do think that there has been a bit of stability coming into the situation in the years own over the last few weeks in particular and that has benefited the currency but if this stress test
11:27 am
turns out to be what you're suggesting. questioning me and maybe a bit better then obviously i think the euro would probably rally more so versus a broad range of currencies to pull what did you take from the fed report this morning. well i was a little bit surprised when i came in this morning and i was looking at the price action of the dollar i mean it was actually holding up very very well versus the euro even though the bernanke he was talking about the possibility of additional measures that is more quantitative easing and that's to me was very puzzling i thought that if anything the dollar should be weaker and i think that his message that tilts more towards the cautious side that they are increasingly concerned about some of the recent data set which has come out of the u.s. being on the weak side of expectations increasingly you're hearing more discussion about the potential need for quantitative easing it just doesn't build a good case for the dollar right now briefly your foreign exchange expert impact the value of the ruble against the. greenback. well if you actually look at how the
11:28 am
rubles and trading versus the basket i mean it's obvious you've been fairly stable at present i think there was a bit of a bit of volatility a couple months ago which is in line with the other emerging countries their currencies biggest ability right now i think really what we have to stand back and if it's going to be more quantitative easing coming through in the u.s. which is by no means a definite story. you know you could actually see this kind of repeat of the situation last year where higher beta currencies actually start to do better overall but right now we're in a wait and see mode we've got to get through these stress tests first and that's going to be tomorrow's highlight and then we'll think differently come the beginning of next week absolutely maybe speak to next week of h.s.b.c. bank thank you. that's the latest business to join us for more in fifty minutes. wealthy british style.
