a total that is part of the game problems in the world it may not be doing many favors for israel its closest friend in the region because. these gunmen mean business and they're upping the stakes just that little bit higher. you gyptian regime like a zionist enemy trying to stop us foreigners and girls are but we always got the weapons we needed to fight the zionist enemy. and now they're giving more than they could give a hopeful but for me gyptian president hosni mubarak's men gone the borders couldn't be easier to get through to go to the big wins in. the world. who. have much more freedom to do whatever they like. and they doing it smuggling weapons into gaza the result two attacks in three months on a natural gas pipeline that supplies a quarter of israel's electricity which is why is the us claims it's bringing

a new tomorrow to egypt most israelis would rather remember years to year the eagerness of the united states to topple the former egyptian president hosni mubarak and bring about regime change and i want to meet most harmed closest ally in the region israel the u.s. says it wants to establish democracy in the region but instead of democracy there is a very real possibility that radical islamic could come to power the u.s. strongly supported the opposition in libya despite al qaeda connections among its ranks now it apparently governessing support against syrian president bashar assad and the wiki leaks website claiming that washington has been funding some anti-government factions what is afraid that if you go the way. it was the world can take syria so instead of incident with you in syria we're going to islamist you swapping one dictator for what could be worse if and when radicals come to power. they are likely to direct the arms at israel it will be very conscious of
3:04 am
the fact that syria is not libya and about that if you do the sites intervene in syria you will have knock on effects across the region in iraq in lebanon to israel palestine what if when you throw it israel my face from an even more hostile arab world emerging from the present instability some experts believe the security of the jewish state is not under any grave threat israel has never been an unsafe place and one of the greatest lies the mother and father of all lies as it relates to the israeli palestinian conflict is israel's been in danger of annihilation i detail in the three volumes of my book it is a complete israel's existence is never ever be in danger in the combination of arab military force and that is unlikely to change in any foreseeable future but the fighters on the ground aren't giving up hope and there are minnes warning is that is worse to come. and

a time of defeat and retreat is over now it's time for the israeli people and the israeli enemy to. israel is keeping quiet amid the current chaos in the middle east and north africa look behind closed doors they'll be plenty of disquiet here about how much america's desire to make new friends in the arab world is fueling serious instability policy r t television. fears that continuing violence in syria might pave the way for foreign intervention at sea but this week russia along with china look to the u.n. security council resolution it. ok to us and number of european nations moscow and beijing argue that consulate intervention to further destabilization fully fledged civil war. looming this experience shows how easily a sovereign state can be attacked in the guise of protecting civilians. well if you look at what what the us did to engineer the. un resolution on
3:06 am
libya this is one of the most. brazen transgressions of the rights of nation national sovereignty in international law the we've seen in the post world war two period the responsibility to protect is an insidious doctrine that's been developed by various think tanks connected with circles in the united states to justify a nato definition of an intervention in a sovereign country fortunately this time russia and china are playing a reasonable role in blocking any u.n. security council sanction for. strong measures against syria so i think they learned from their deadly mistake on the on the libya case when the strain that this thing has you know when we if it's allowed to pass. well maybe a nato airstrike has hit it off his compound in tripoli but also the killing of his
3:07 am
sons is the first time the advances made an apparent attempt to the libyan leader's life earlier this week russia's prime minister the coalition to stop breaching the u.n. resolution. does begin to injure the coalition so destroying good daffy was not they goal then why bomb his palaces now some officials have claimed that eliminating him was in fact their goal who gave them that right did he have a fair trial returning to the no fly zone the bombings are destroying the country's entire infrastructure when the so-called civilized world uses all its military power against a small country destroying what's being created by generations i don't know if that's good. website or asking for your opinion why hasn't eventually happened in libya but not syria there's a difference lidl different leadership style of present sad pathetic. but it just seems small the oil reserves but that's it's only a question of time before does begin syria whatever you think you have your say but
3:08 am
art and the. rest of the middle east and north africa has been fueled not just by western powers but from within the region itself as one of the president of yemen he spoke exclusively to our t.v. and here's a preview of what's to come later the credit. some countries of the region and some within countries can live at least tendencies clearly seen in the so-called at least a controlled cayle scenarios are prepared for it is enough to have a look at what is going on in egypt tunisia and other countries cannot be cool or otherwise. against the region. but with france taking an active part in nato as bombing libya there's a rising that could result in a vendor tax and security alert in a country has been for massively raised armed and medical personnel and offenses streets resulting bushell reports the measure has been retta that is ations at the moment is running the state. soldiers on the streets with machine guns this is
3:09 am
cross is the chief here at fist of europe's most expensive anti terror program before it what it calls the growing terrorist raids the government claims troops make the public feel safer but that's not what people think they look a little bit dangerous they can. use the force and other way. it's a bit frighted to guard the. premier francois feel says troops are required because frauds bombing libya threatens a terror attack at home you'll never find soldiers at shops tourist sites government buildings train stations airports schools and churches but expose the system doesn't even work and the main feature of terrorism is that it's impossible to foresee. real targets is not to catch terrorists says one investigator but
3:10 am
to monitor the public it's easy to persuade people that they could be a terrorist just metro station it's easy very for people in france to believe well then they have a right to listen to my phone calls which they do they do do it they have a right to monitor my emails and facebook because they're really protecting us troops are only the visible part or thirty's canel read people's emails under a law passed quietly in february president sarkozy also signed a bill for police to tap phones without getting judge's authorization to justify the invasion of people's privacy says one author because he makes france's six million arabs a scapegoat he has to make them afraid thinking that there is an arab with a bomb. here. a government recently branded muslims a problem and banned the muslim food. three surveilled some already mocked the
3:11 am
brand and what they see is an arab witch hunt by going out in vocals and mini skirts there's also the law cost world workers continue to be laid off in the economic crisis. estimated prices eighteen billion euros each year enough to create a million new teaching jobs and embarrassed government and lists a tries to hide the amount. is very expensive because an executive can move resources from one area to another quite quickly it's very difficult to find an exact figure critics like. the video system vishy pierrette she was france's first history in the second world war it's spoiled and informed on people and targeted ethnic minorities. the french government today stands accused of doing the same to its own citizens
3:12 am
don't you bush or see paris. another consequence of france taking part operations in libya as a wave of immigrants hitting the country try to escape the conflict and as he spoke to marine le pen the president of france is far right a national front party has sparked controversy by claiming it threatens the very survival of the french nation. because they say we're in a democracy but authorities refused to show the real figures on how many immigrants there are there are probably six to seven million muslims here already less additional immigration on a massive scale each year this isn't all that nice replacement of our population this threatens our very survival we don't have the means to integrate those who are already here there is the endless cultural conflicts you can be against immigration fights immigration stand all immigration cannot eat immigrants of individuals you may understand immigrants want a better future here but i honestly say to them you can't find a better future here while we're finding it hard to get a better future to people as it is.
3:13 am
i think it was the interview with larry in the head full interview that on our website outing up. tuesday the world marked twenty five years since the worst nuclear accident in history it's a novel blast sent a huge radioactive cloud across much of europe into kilometers of land around the reactor poison for centuries to come see our shuster reports. it's not every day you can see the chernobyl exclusion zone in ukraine as crowded as this one hundred singling the russian and ukrainian presidents came to the monument beside the nuclear plant to mark the date which changed the world the twenty fifth anniversary of the chernobyl fallout. that the leaders of a huge amount of citizens from ukraine and russia was put in to deal with the aftermath of this tragedy in the face of such disasters we should be honest it's the government's obligation to tell people the truth we need to admit at the back
3:14 am
of n.z. that the government was not always doing the right thing nowadays the zone looks like this deserted streets and abandoned houses however a quarter of a century ago it was the place to be in the soviet union salaries for the residents of the town of pretty gats were higher living standards better and infrastructure more developed the communist paradise changed on april the twenty six nineteen eighty six when the chernobyl reactor exploded the result of an experiment left in the wrong hands. they reacted was almost completely out of control in april twenty fifth but it could still have been saved and management pushed for a completion of an experiment personal hesitated and were reluctant to eventually couldn't go against the authorities we all know the result. meanwhile the town's population had no idea about the disaster people were enjoying an unusually sunny saturday outdoors when what i mean my friend we were in away from school the point
3:15 am
of beach we returned home or covered in mud in my mother asked me where i had been i lied that we were cleaning the school yard and she was shocked as she had already heard rumors of some action in the nuclear station all thora he started the evacuation only thirty six hours after the blast that's why many of those who stayed in the town later died or suffered radiation sickness my pillock only uncle was among the evacuees from the thirty kilometer zone but just several years after the catastrophe she returned to the first bit inland having lived there for more than two decades she says she wants to see the end of her days in the land where she was born we gave me a flat and the pension i to found it impossible to survive like that and give here i have a cattle and i grow everything in radiation yes there is a little here but you won't find a place without it anywhere we are not scared. despite this optimism from reset loose the world still seems concerned about the children of all throughout and
3:16 am
especially in the wake of the fukushima disaster that's why ahead of this anniversary countries invested more than five hundred million euro into constructing a new confinement destined to seal the exploded reactor for another century this is probably the last time we have managed to see the infamous chimney of the fourth walk of the chill nobile nuclear power station people behind the news reports are going to say that next year it will be dismantled then the station will be covered with a deal and that will end the existence of the children or build nuclear power station but the former residents of this area say matters little to them their life as they knew it had ended twenty five years ago let's see russia r.t. reporting from the chill novel exclusion zone in ukraine. well since the beginning of the nuclear crisis in japan parallels have been drawn of the noble disaster sustainable energy expert professor tom burke says the effects of extremely serious
3:17 am
what's a nice and long lasting battle they have not actually regained control of the reactors and so there are still risks that they will be further explosions or releases of radiation either to the air or to water which to the sea which has been happening all through this process they've got a bit more manageability than they had earlier on but this bench is still ongoing it was over very quickly it was an explosion and it was over relatively quickly this is clearly going to run and run for months and what is very clear from what happened in fukushima is the japanese neither the utility nor the government really had a well worked out thought through emergency plan to deal with a catastrophic event like this. but on the one who fought against the media consequences of the chernobyl blast as part of the so-called liquidators. everything was difficult work to impose difficult each day we're facing they have to resolve somehow using all our experience well what's the full interview with us
3:18 am
or a member of the chernobyl cleanup team on our site. they last to find a special documentary probably exclusions. if. russian security forces carried out a string of successful and some terror operations in the north caucasus this week latest result in the deaths of ten militants suspected of links to al qaida occurring at the attacks against civilians artie's within the continent is in the region for. this biggest achieving operation was carried out on the border. region and kabaddi in about the republic when ten militants including at least two women were killed and among some high profile terrorists with links with the
3:19 am
international terrorist group al qaida in this region d.n.a. task would probably be required to identify some of the militants or sample leading figures in a so-called box on gang were already identified because big truth was believed to be involved in a number of terror attacks across the area now and not the think among terrorists ascared jump who if it was believed to be involved in attacking tourists from moscow in the district in february twentieth love and then earlier in the week another special operation was carried out. and the leader of the republic ramadan could be rove was personally in charge of base operation the militants that were killed now were later identified to ask close associates to russia's most wanted terrorist the moment of ants in the neighboring dagestan a leader of the so-called highland sector of guys there was also killed in a special operation now this way thoughts on t.
3:20 am
terror raids was launched here after a number of high profile terror attacks in russia. but before that some of the headlines around the world. it's the tens of thousands of pilgrims are still serving. the heads of state are also expected to visit the president of the seized it's. easy to believe isn't it. was. just necessary cation. germany where the discovery store to store with goods and offices and just a. what's the current rubbish theories are true spencer homes security has been stepped up across the country to invent street products plenty of international workers to perfect the process for decades. or
3:21 am
may day or they put their celebrations being held across russia by many see the three day holiday as a chance for world and rest of it seems the towns and convey political or social messages through the administration's what we serve are reports from the heart i'm skint. a very rare occasion that central moscow is completely empty and this of course is done for these people's twenty five thousand members of treaty and who on this day are celebrating their professional holiday as part of that celebration are marching through the heart of moscow all the way down to the kremlin on the slow day originally of course dates back to the united states where some workers they go all the strike they were dispersed by the violence lead by police yeah it was later repeated hit areas and ever since then the first man to come trade unions day workers all all countries everywhere have the right to speak their mind to say what
3:22 am
they want to say call attention to problems they feel exist or simply should not affect their belonging to a trade union to their problems their rights and their policies of course in russia that is also the case these people are showing on their day off they're here in the heart of russian capital walking through auslan one all the way through to the kremlin now forces not just the trades union action various political parties will probably government and from the opposition will be gathering their supporters highlighting what they believe is of course trouble but also got some non political organization this course for many people even those who are in the trade union the first of may it's not the time to showcase your social ambitions or political beliefs as simply another holiday where you can use the chance of
3:23 am
a long weekend spend some time with your dog show country with some family and friends have a little barbecue a little fun a little r. and r. basically there's something in this day for everyone a chance to celebrate so laid back. well. if their beliefs like baseball. players are over of course they're the giant piece of graffiti has ignited debate in the russian art world after what they perceive as not seen it was how the national world i work at drawing next the federal security offices in petersburg was the recognition as a sign from society in russia of a bet expense. this is award winning art according to russia's ministry of culture the sixty five metre phallus whitewashed on a drawbridge instant petersburg has won the twenty thousand innovation prize for best visual artwork self-styled art terrorists by now meaning war in russian are
3:24 am
the unpopular willetts there are i think it's essentially vandalism a bridge is a cultural and historical monument and anything on it is an act of vandalism and it should be punished not rewarded. here in the center of contemporary art you can see the other entries for the award nothing is stimulating or is shocking or as innovative as violence and according to the jury that's why they won purely on artistic merit but now it's not as simple as that the same symbol the ministry rewarded is now being brandished in mocking protest this russian youth group is angry four hundred thousand roubles of taxpayers' money we given to a group it calls vandals for vyner the protest only legitimizes their own but. it's a very awkward situation when the state award goes to a group that in fact organizes an action against the state but this is
3:25 am
a very important signal with artists always express society's pain and a healthy society accepts these. but there's been no acceptance of by noah's ark until now two members still face trial on hooliganism charges for this little. stunt british graffiti on the banks they did bail them out they could still place seven years in prison for killing a police cars so why this sudden show of state support. the minister of culture was afraid of being accused of political censorship and i think he was right in our country is better being afraid of imposing political censorship than to actually import your bodies would be. a sea change from four years ago this image of two kissing policeman was banned by the culture ministry for international exhibits fearing embarrassment the curator of that exhibit was andrei uniphase back then he lost his job and this time he was on the jury so why
3:26 am
is this art then. the touring is a graphic and expressive example of how an artist reacts to a social climate he doesn't specify the target of his protest he simply says that strong protest is brewing in russian society but how do you draw the line between say this and arts and planned this and because this is clearly disgusting to. the streets auntie's minor vandalism but it's not hooliganism the disorder it may cause it's compensated hundreds of times by the meaning of their pictures which is painting could be restored on the bridge to become a symbol of some petersburg's culture because it's a first work that is proof of a civil society. by no courts controversy usually at the expense of the authorities whether it's art or not they've achieved what they wanted to know to writing they say they'll donate the prize money to political prisoners why didn't it. stay
3:27 am
