a much independent does manchukuo vichy france was in world war two it's a puppet state it suffers from endemic corruption as abuses of power in government structure can be best described as organized crime is not a state in any way shape or form just because the u.s. state department says it is a doesn't mean it is a case of course or just a naked land grab and if it's allowed to stand and serbia itself may actually soon fall apart 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
1:03 pm
a policy on. in israel an arab man has been sentenced to eighteen months for rape by deception because you are tricked a woman's or having sex with him by claiming to be jewish he plans to appeal the decision that is all to the reports even 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 girls breaking this to boot a specially trained team of counselors and psychologists is on standby to rescue them as a leash more. it's important to our traditions culture history and identity because without this who are we through my experience we can see that the chances for
1:04 pm
a healthy relationship between i really do and an arab man very very low it's because of the great differences between these two cultures shut up at any of 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 and not a jew she filed a police complaint the courts took the case so seriously that he's now been convicted of rape by deception and same tools to eighteen months in prison 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 defer i think if the women want to do it it's stored lord a lot different it's our belief or more of a because something like this usually do is girls don't know where they're the guys . unless it's a choice you know. there should be a choice he didn't leave or choice but in prison is too much of this is the way
1:05 pm
that this is going to take these ruining our present arrives that we cannot have relationships that we cannot be just human being arabs make up a foot of israel's population but relationships between arabs and jews are rare former palestinian minister ziad abu is a yard says fights break out almost weekly and night clubs and other puppy. places over the issue it's not religion he says it's racism there are jewish gangs which are against. the relations between jewish jewish men and hunting jewish. those who can go out to a bar. or anywhere with guys and threaten them and force them to break their relations with guys in the two years rami where here and kitty been tata 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
1:06 pm
cutting me off on every level. for acting as a traitor to everybody and for being an inch and making that choice right now israeli parliamentarians are considering a law it will require perspective israeli citizens to decline in oil to israel 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 r.t. . but i'm not joined from tel aviv by political journalist and analyst gideon levy thanks for joining us so what do you make of this case. if it wouldn't be so it could have been very funny this whole story. it's a story of a very well covered up racism it's a story of stupidity if i may say so because they called misunderstood the whole
1:07 pm
seeing. story of made chauvinism. because it's all based on the assumption that the woman gives something in the men get something which is also something that. it should be different in any case i was asking today in my article their respective full judges in jerusalem would they all saw him convicted a jew who would claim he is a muslim and would go to bed was a muslim also convicted for rape well it's interesting. yes it's interesting you raise that point in this race this point is a bit earlier we had a guest on saying actually this case was about the section the man lied to the women that the main thing was he said he was single when in fact he was married and actually it's people like you have blown this up into a race issue it's about protecting women's rights and protecting them from the
1:08 pm
section is not. sure because our adult people are grown up people and we know that in any kind of relationship between men and women the big lies and small lies white lies and lies he called the lie here about his age he could tell her he loved her and he didn't love her he could tell her that he has a car and he doesn't have a car this will be sure there really sure was that he's a most level pretended to be a jew and this is the subtext of the whole thing and you're saying exactly the same as he said earlier jewish man had if you have tended to be an arab then it would be treated in a different way. he wouldn't be treated he wouldn't be brought to court at all the whole subtext is don't touch our women that's the subtext the judges the mentee the deaves they didn't mean it but living it also discrimination against arabs then. that's the baseline i mean arab side
1:09 pm
discriminated palestinians like this guy discriminated he knew it was a palestinian name he has no chance in the jewish society so a doctor himself a jewish name this was his only chance to be accepted to be equal to be a human being. what chances for him to win his appeal he says you can appeal against this case other any chances of him winning. yeah there are very good chances because it became such an issue and i guess i give credit to the supreme court judges who are more intelligent than this and more sensitive than this and they will understand that to send this guy for eighteen months in jail after spending by the way two years seen how he spent two years at home so after he went after the whole fuss that became all over the world by the way
1:10 pm
including this interview i think this supreme court judges would be clever enough to put an end to this ridiculous case can you just briefly explain to us the situation there in israel we had a report earlier suggesting that there are elements of israeli society really trying to attempt to control the relationship people form there within society what what what is the situation like exactly. first of all let's proportion there hardly a relationship between muslims and jews intimate relations almost nothing it's very very rare the two societies the two community communities are told to be segregated and it's very very hard to to break the walls which cover both. dictated by the authorities rather than actually a feeling of public opinion where people may want to form these relationships but the authorities prevent that from happening. i think if you would have made paul
1:11 pm
today in the public opinion which turned quite nation realistic if not to say racist in the last years i think there will be a majority of israelis who would even like to see a law. be. any kind of sexual relations between jews and arabs the nation a sentiment is that this should not happen gideon levy very interesting to hear what you have to say thanks very much indeed for joining us live here on r.t. there in tel aviv thanks. thank you very much. well this is live from the russian capital still to come in the program for you this hour a manhunt in southern russia police sweep the north caucasus searching for the militants who attacked a hydroelectric power station. but first a ruling against an alleged near nazi group has been postponed while four of these suspects go through psychiatric assessment the group is accused of dozens of ethnically motivated killings and terror plots and could spend the rest of their
