3:01 pm
welcome it's eleven pm sunday night here in moscow you're watching the weekly a round of the top stories of the last seven days with me kevin i know him and the late colonel gadhafi is most influential son is looking to hand himself over to the international criminal court where he's wanted for war crimes saif al islam claims he's innocent and is threatening to expose details of his father's dealings with western leaders if he appears in the dock party's over bennett reports. to some market after he was a man too much secrets which will supposedly he buried with him i think that there were tremendous sighs of relief all over capitals in western europe this is somebody who cut all sorts of deals with the french but also the british and the italians and to a certain extent the americans as well i think they did not want him put on trial for any reason and i am not misled is that surprised that he was captured alive and
3:02 pm
he very quickly ended up dead is that gadhafi is returning from diplomatic akes all was spectacular hugs handshakes and kisses from the heads of countries which denounced him get that he's now silenced but the suspicion around those who laid out the welcome mat op is far from buried i don't feel as close to his grave you see. but the. dealing with him is constant and it. will go way over seriously because that is also the situation was sufficient but probably cruel tricks that marriage ironically to a situation they could never see were through their interests then british prime minister tony blair was instrumental in get deaf mutes rehabilitation bringing him in from the cold in two thousand and seven that play didn't leave empty handed trade between flourished so did the cozy relationship there was six more secret meetings off the player left office he's people denying they were about releasing
3:03 pm
them look the boma abdel baset al mcgraw he or britain would lose its lucrative libyan deals i regret myself enormously that gadhafi was but should he should have been said to the international criminal court put all the trial and force to all it's a question through all the terrible things he did and if it davidge the contemporary world leaders or previous regimes leaders tough. we need to. walk. with. some details of the murky dealings have already had merged claiming the reputation of one of britain's leading universities the london school of economics agreed a contract to begin acting regime worth over two million pounds to educate hundreds of its future civil servants the director was forced to resign and now the university of tripoli is demanding the money back french leader nicolas sarkozy was never shy in greeting get daffy even letting him pitches tend to nearly safe palace
3:04 pm
apparently for bankrolling sarkozy's path to the presidency so says this man the one who could still tell all that cause he had never had sarkozy must give back the money he took from libya to finance his electoral campaign we funded it and we have all the details and are ready to reveal everything. saif al islam gadhafi son and key right hand man reportedly ready to surrender to the war crimes court saif is going to have low information and now i think we're so used to tony blair intervening formed to help him get his dodgy ph d. degree from the london school of economics when that degree apparently was plagiarized there's a lot of things that have gone on there so you knows about saif gadhafi is wanted to answer for his own actions in libya is drawn out battle for control but it's what he could reveal about the diplomatic deals with his father is keeping the western power players sweating after bennett our team london. living resident cassy
3:05 pm
for the city of sirte just days before colonel gadhafi was killed he claims that nato has committed atrocities during its intervention which only helped to destabilize his country. they used every possible thing to do to make this so-called revolution successful they used gunships. helicopters they used fighter is all sorts of weapons that the they had disposal so they can. make this kind of illusions successful so they've killed so many people to succeed in this operation moshtarak i don't think it's a success because if it was a success believe me it would have been so happy about it i doubt it very much there's a big divide in libya there is a huge gap now between libyans. i mean parts
3:06 pm
or partially because of nato interference partially because of let's be honest and say partially because of gadhafi. but but the way they killed gadhafi the way they treated him the way they bombed my city. which i have a lot of civilians inside it who were killed as well i mean this just. generates anger and generates revenge. which which is in the future would be the fuel of another war in libya which i think it will be sooner or later. well as nature winds up its intervention in libya it's leaving behind a country full of weapons in the hands of people the shady past you stay with us we have special report coming up shortly on the ground is sort of on air and i was time here as we reveal how some former rebel commanders have no clue how to tackle
3:07 pm
the gun problem right now. the folks from syria next to. their presidents warning western nations that intervening in his country will cause an earthquake that will tear the middle east apart but charlotte told britain's sunday telegraph newspaper that international involvement could turn his country into another afghanistan his comments follow the u.n. chief latest call for the repressions to end after weekend clashes claimed reported fifty lives the arab league's also weighing in with strong criticism of the surge damascus to take the necessary measures to protect civilians the u.n. believes more than three thousand people perished in the rest of this march the decision syrian right to democracy shall kill all things most people there don't want a military solution for the crisis. and we're against military intervention whether it's a date tomorrow or in ten years' time even if the regime is to ny late every one of us would still be against military intervention we fight for freedom and we don't want to add external slavery to our domestic law we don't want it to become
3:08 pm
a part of the struggle between the international and internal forces syrians are peaceful they want to progress under conditions of freedom and development and they don't want to turn into a concentration camp a poly go on philology countries. brian becker from the u.s. post antiwar coalition believes that like libya syria is too strong for the alliance to intervene that's why the west wants to spark a civil war to bring about regime change. for using the same lingo the same scenario the syrian opposition is borrowing a page from the playbook for libya they know that they can come to power only with the advance with the support with the intervention through multiple means of the nato powers of the western powers and i think what we can tell the syrian people is look at what happened in libya the issue of a no fly zone sounds like go a way to defend civilians it's really a way to begin the war to begin military operations against the syrian air force or
3:09 pm
air defenses and i think the first step and this is the plan of the obama administration is not direct military intervention but to promote a civil war inside of syria i think they realize that the syrian government is substantially stronger militarily and within the arab world as compared to khadafi but they can use the human beings who have grievances valid or not to be the human materiel for a civil war and i think the u.s. government officials signaling the syrian opposition and the syrian president that they should learn the lesson of libya is a clear message begin the civil war they want to weaken syria first as a as a prelude to a more direct intervention for regime change. still to come this hour on r t another outbreak of violence in the middle east we report for you on how deadly exchange of fire between israel and gaza has overshadowed
3:10 pm
a peaceful mass protest in government spending in television. for the schools of demonstrators supporting the occupy wall street movement been arrested across the u.s. riot police in denver moved in detaining activists who refused to leave their camp earlier police used pepper spray to disperse the crowds at least sixty people were arrested in the states of texas oregon and california after police went into a false curfew removing protesters belongings it was nature though threatening demos in new york after the city there was hit by an unseasonal snow blizzard but the activists say they believe to withstand those are conditions in the weather to make their point i was garniture can report for you from washington the occupy protest is a serious in the nation. the peaceful nationwide movement that turned violent overnight in oakland. police attacked protesters with tear gas stun grenades. flash bombs and rubber bullets we had been there for weeks we
3:11 pm
had been taking care of ourselves there been no incidents with the police and they came in in one of the most terrifying shows of force that i've ever seen in my entire life and they came in and they either flushed everyone out of the camp or arrested them and then they began to systematically trample all of the tents cut them apart and this need people really really angry a former u.s. marine an iraqi war veteran was seriously injured by a tear gas canister that police fired had. footage of the wounded veteran and police brutality spread quickly the shock of it galvanizing the nation and the occupy movement across the country i heard google says the company received requests from local law enforcement agencies to remove you tube videos of police brutality they did not comply the stronger of forcible response five establishment the stronger the movement will get the larger the protests will become the protesters through these past six weeks of being careful not to taint the movements
3:12 pm
reputation with violence by a march most reports suggest that this movement has been almost entirely peaceful but some in the u.s. media use the night of violence you know clinton to portray the protesters as radicals and more violence from the occupiers a lot of these people are professional agitators a good number of these people are radicals no doubt about it you might ask how radical was this elderly woman in a wheelchair who was tear gassed by police or jasper father of two who's working on his ph d. at the university of california berkeley you know they characterize you know it's. the perspective of the movement as the marja. and radical fringe in order to discredit it this moment really is about all americans it's not just about people that make a story we've been poor this is about now it's true the middle class is starting to feel the impact of corporate greed that has run this country for so long as the
3:13 pm
movement grows bigger and more structured it's becoming harder to ignore the message of the campaigners who call themselves the ninety nine percent and protest against corporate crime and government complicity protesters tents march through and throughout the country there will be more the movement is only expanding several weeks ago police crackdown on protesters with pepper spray this week it was tear gas and stun grenades protesters now want to hit big business where it hurts a general strike next week demanding banks and corporations shut down for a day but will the police response be an even more brutal crackdown i'm going to check our reporting for washing our teeth. well if you're mostly most couple we should know we keep very close eye on the protests that are hitting the united states coast to coast i don't mind for more of our coverage. of. the money rather.
3:14 pm
than watching you know money go to our you tube channel to check out the chance which the occupy protesters are using to rouse the rallies across new york today. israeli airstrikes on gaza have killed at least ten palestinians in response to rocket attacks on the jewish state that left one dead that's the worst outbreak of violence in weeks following a successful prisoner swap deal between tel aviv and hamas. reports from israel. one of the concerns people have is that among the hundreds of palestinian prisoners who are still in these radio jails and who still need to be released as part of that prisoner exchange deal that saw one israeli soldier return to israel in exchange for more than a thousand palestinian prisoners many of the palestinian prisoners who still need to be released belong to the democratic front for the liberation of palestine and that is one of the palestinian groups that has claimed responsibility for
3:15 pm
a number of these rockets that have been fired into israel in recent days so there are many people here saying that this does jeopardize that prisoner exchange deal and that it will be almost a convenient excuse for the israelis not to release the hundreds of palestinian prisoners that it is still committed to release as part of that deal there were more than twenty thousand people that took to the streets of tel aviv they were not surprised by the violence they say that this is something that has happened in the past and it is the government's way of detracting attention away from domestic problems and certainly if you look at the international media coverage the international media was much more focused on what was happening in terms of security concerns and on israel's border with gaza and then on what was happening domestically here and this is exactly what protesters say they say that they want money to not be spent so much on the on the defense budget but full cuts they have to be made so that more money can be spent domestically in search for me this increase in violence and the government's response in terms of the fact that it is
3:16 pm
going to give gaza a harsh hand to tracks attention away from what people here say is the ongoing situation where they have very real demands that are more often than not overshadowed by the excuse of security concerns. middle east correspondent paula staying with. a court sentenced a former israeli soldier to four prison for releasing classified military documents some of the league files detailed military officials approving the assassination of palestinians in the west bank but those claims are being investigated legal experts told me that undermines israeli law. in this case a whistle blower blew a loud and disturbing whistle the military is violating international law and the directors of the israeli supreme court in carrying out assassinations in situations in which they are required to try to make an arrest and so the state attorney's office prosecuted the soldier but failed to seriously investigate the conduct revealed in those documents conduct with raises serious questions about rule of law
3:17 pm
in a democratic system that pattern of behavior of violating by the supreme court because it was a pretty court to say that said you must try to arrest is part of a pattern of practice within the israeli system and it's something that's very disturbing because when the army does not obey orders by the supreme court the supreme court is actually more reluctant to issue those orders because no court wants to issue orders that are going to be ignored and then of course you have a serious threat to the rule of law because in a democratic system the army is of course supposed to listen to what the system tells and tells them to do. if you want top stories in the wake eve leaders managed to strike a last minute deal about eurozone debt on thursday to try and save greece and avoid further collapse the banks have to swallow a very bitter pill though they ended up agreeing to write off fifty percent of what greece owes them after euro zone leaders decided on half the country's private sector debt one hundred billion euros europe's emergency pot of cash is also set to swell to one trillion euros after the summit in brussels french president nicolas
3:18 pm
sarkozy said allowing greece to join the euro was a quote mistake. based political economist dr marcus kerber says extending the bailout is a worry for germany because they don't want to pay for others' mistakes. i have always hoped that germany sooner or later is going to wield the power to bring the continent to back to economic reason because we are in a phase of the euro agonizing and if so a certain concept is agonizing you should bring it quickly to an end the money we have spent on least is lost money and we know this i have said this in spring two thousand and ten we should have kept greece out of the euro zone from the very beginning of the crisis to stop contagion eighty five percent of the germans disapprove the government's bailout policy and sooner or later that massive popular opposition has to be faced by the german parliament they have to pay tribute to that they cannot go on pursuing a policy which has turned out to be failing in
