12:15 pm

a visit to garza has already expelled israeli diplomats over the refusal to apologize for killing nine eight activists in last year's gaza flotilla raid paul asli is following the latest for us in tel aviv. the turkish prime minister and the one who has announced that he could be slapping more sanctions on television this follows the release last week of a united nations report into what happened on board the mamma now that was a turkish missile that took part in the first attempt to break the israeli siege on gaza some one and a half years ago and often israeli soldiers stormed the ship some nine turkish citizens were killed israel has repeatedly refused to apologize for the deaths and in response and korea has expelled the israeli ambassador it has downgraded diplomatic relations between both countries to the level of second secretary and it's also frozen all military cooperation the turkish prime minister used the word savagely when he referred to the israeli behavior he also accused israel of behaving like
12:17 pm
a spoiled boy in the region and he said that the turks would challenge israeli bullying in the mediterranean by increasing the naval presence there the turkish government has also rejected another finding of a un palmer report which said that the israeli blockade on gaza was not illegal with the turkish government saying that it would now lobby that with the international criminal court in the hague we've heard from the turkish foreign minister who held a press briefing with the top official now bill shaath in which he said that the turks had a campaign underway to help the palestinians be successful in may but come september the twentieth for a palestinian state now this is no surprise because for several months turkey has indicated that it is supporting the palestinians it has also indicated that it is embarking on a diplomatic campaign to help them in their struggle the official response from the israeli defense minister ministry is that turkey has a lot to lose but most people here really are questioning what israel is going to
12:18 pm
do because this is a crucial time when israel needs all the friends it can have particularly ahead of this u.n. bed which of course israel is against you need to remember. that turkey was israel's closest ally in the region and relationships between israel and turkey are at the lowest they've been in more than twenty years and certainly seeing the same between tel aviv and cairo where relations between israel and egypt are also now at an all time low. mideast correspondent paula slipped the tension between the two countries may cause some incidents even worse than the raid on the flotilla linden the structure of the institute for national security studies in tel aviv has been explaining to us at r.t. differently when turkey says that it will start acting more decisively in the eastern mediterranean this might have an effect i don't think the two navies the israeli navy and the turkish navy will enter a direct confrontation but there might be mistakes like the flotilla self in this
12:19 pm
might be even worse than the flu to logan i don't think actually this crisis between israel and turkey has a direct effect on what will happen in the. of course the question is what will happen the day after the u.n. recognizes the palestinian state will that cause more violence no difference and then it will cause palestinian frustration. there's more now on our top story syria the head of the arab league stupid visit on wednesday to try and persuade president assad to end the six month long crackdown on the uprising there all this comes after e.u. countries imposed imposed an oil embargo against the country or to talk more about that diane is with the seize the european affairs advisor for marine le pen france's far right national front party leader mr dunne thanks for being on our to international do you say that oil embargo on syria yet the taps are going to be turned off into the middle of november while you wait do you think. thank you first of all thank you very much for inviting people of the opposition in the west
12:20 pm
because of this feeling that the media in the west are not as objective as can be for example television like russia today so thank you for inviting me that. the thing is now that the libyan oil has been freed is that they are now more time to care about syria this is what i think first of all and secondly i think that. the media in the west are lying about the reality of the situation actually in syria so what is the. line for us what you think the actual reality is that. actually for example we have from our own party or intellectuals or writers who are very close to us have been to syria and just came back two weeks ago they have witnessed that it is not as bad as it seems actually they are problems in the region of homs for example where it's supposed to be much more smaller.
12:21 pm
kind of not revolution and more religious backgrounds so ok we know that assad regime is an authoritarian but secular state what we do not want to see is that the west will try to put down and they will have an islamist state so two points i would say what you're very country's leading you calls out you your country for regime change in syria how close does that echo what happened in libya that found itself injuring a french led military campaign against it. where are they going wrong. i've seen that they're going wrong first of all because they are first thinking about signing oil contracts and gas contracts instead of talking with more about democracy which was i think the first idea of this intervention so i think first of all the philosophy was alive again we're seeing witnessing that this is not going
12:22 pm
in the direction i don't see any more democracy. contracts or how is all this is the first how is how important is syrian oil for so much for centuries does it make your countries imports is i mean is this just a token gesture or what it really hit the oil import coming into your country. and i think that we will have i don't exactly know the figures. actually i know that we will have we had they had very good discussions with actual c. and t. . taking power in libya to discuss probably much better contracts much more interesting possibilities with oil and gas gas for italy or for friends in other countries probably military would move much more interesting for the industry for united states so all this is actually again just a big lie and i feel really bad for
12:23 pm
a billion people who are really trying to struggle for something else and they're just having their state their country stolen away from another kind of. focusing on syria we've also heard the torture reports they are hard to verify can they be believed because we've also witnessed syria allowing red cross officials to visit one of its main prisons those widespread claims that dozens of anti-government activists were tortured to death what does that tell us about the regime's openness. i'm telling you we had two three major intellectuals of the. oppositions your friends from for example in for syria and for syria and france is very active to try to explain that there is no bloodshed in syria it's not true that there probably is regionally in some little locations but not every day so where's the bloodshed where is actually what are we talking about. we want
12:24 pm
the truth and i'm so happy that they could hear again on russia today for example that people from kinetic can either our or other countries which belong to the brics you know that there are several countries as russia who do not want to harden hearten policies on russia on syria so where is the truth actually what is going on what do they want. ok i'm afraid we're out of time but thanks ever so much build a program that evicted the european affairs i phones of for a marine le pen france's foreign national. from a brussels today thank you well also news are up so far this far thanks for being with yourself to sports for you in twenty five minutes with the latest from the euro two thousand and twelve qualifiers and a lot more besides live business next though from moscow uli is here. hello and a very warm welcome to the business update and more on the opening of the north rim
