to shoulder by. being treated like garbage. for the jobs here that's why i signed for the referendum ethnic russians make up a third of luckiest population the idea of holding this referendum came up to what they describe as discrimination had reached a critical point if. nationalists initiated their own referendum to close russian schools in latvia they failed but it was a worryin coup that's why we gather signatures for a language referendum to legally protect ourselves after we did the ruling nationalists when hysterical trying to jeopardize the votes in the minority points to a recent statement by the country's president told us at the referendum means voting against blood to be. as collating state level discrimination the nationalist camp denounces all such accusations however they believe their vote carries a threat to the country's sovereignty and are sending

9:30 am
book. live from moscow our top stories the e.u. is seeking to impose tougher economic sanctions on syria's government after failing to boost pressure on president also the u.n. draft resolution that was blocked by russia and china. and russia's foreign minister calls western reaction to the double veto indecent and hysterical ahead of his trip to damascus and to finding a political solution to the ongoing crisis. also enduring ensuring greater political involvement for the people through the internet prime minister putin lays
9:31 am
out his plans to upgrade russian democracy a day after massive pro and anti-government rallies sweep the country. plus the russian latvian minorities hopes for their language to be officially recognized in the post soviet baltic states are marred by reports of intimidation being used to dissuade people from taking part in upcoming referendum. now in the midst of sky high tensions between the west and tehran we talk to the former chief of the israeli intelligence service about his take on the ongoing confrontation. when you have mistaken for him heavy before we hade our intelligence agency the more side mr halevi thank you very much for joining us here on our team a nuclear iran with iran is there with that option yes there is
9:32 am
a third option and the third option is a non-nuclear iran with. an agreement an understanding with the iranians that they will not become nuclear. and that they will be reintroduced into the family of nations from which they have been virtually expelled in the recent months. under terms which will also take into account some of their interests and some of it is how possible is this option i think is very possible because i think the international pressure which has been building up in recent months is beginning to have serious effects. on the economics on the moral side. and i think that the basic interest of the people in charge in iran. is to maintain the position to maintain power do you think you will poses an existential threat to israel and the other state in the region. i am on record.
9:33 am
repeatedly saying that i don't think there is such a thing as the existential threat to israel because i think israel is strong enough to protect it so to take care of itself and i think that ultimately it's not in the power of iran to destroy the state of israel so why does these weighty leadership insist on presenting the ran as this big danger i believe that the leadership believes that in order to arouse international public opinion in order to mount pressure upon the iranians it's necessary to impress upon the world at large and public opinion that the national public opinion. this is a serious international threat and i believe that in this context probably the leadership here believes that using the word existence will rings a bell which also brings you back to days gone by in the twentieth century. a rise of nazi germany the world war two and of course the holocaust and.
9:34 am
these apparitions these. pictures these experiences recalled in order to impress upon the world that maximum pressure should be mounted on iran does israel have a nuclear weapon. i don't know and if i knew i don't think this would be the opportunity for me to say something positive and definitive on that but i think that there is in the world an assumption there is in the world a feeling that israel has something up its sleeve and i think that this is something which is important in the present situation because a part of the name of the game now is deterrence and i think it's very important to deter iran and if you run believes that israel has certain capabilities where it has it or not i think this is a. positive card in the hands of israel what would be better if israel and demanded both had nuclear weapons only from your head. i've been asked that question before
9:35 am
and i think it's a theoretical question. what you're alluding to is in the end is that has the time for israel to. change its policy of what we call the opaque. methods of presenting what we have or not and i don't think that this time has arrived at the reason i've given before as far as the mossad is concerned would you define if coming to mission me as preventing war or weakening iran in the case that does happen i think that. it is the mission of the mossad to do everything in. its capabilities. to make a. threat which has been posed to israel dormant what capabilities does the mossad have when it comes to iran where here again i don't think that it would be useful for me to a whole list of capabilities i think needs the capabilities which every intelligence organization. i think it's important to say that we have been involved
9:36 am
in what we call a clandestine war for quite some time with iran and what's interesting about this war is of course that both sides have more or less preferred that the details of this war the details of various events be not exposed to the public when you talk about can this time of war be killing everybody and scientists accidents at the ring implants computer viruses is this what you're referring to i'm referring to all range of activity is i will not confirm anything which you have just now mentioned but i was serving that there is a long range of activities that have been carried been carried on for a very very long time over a very long period of time and i think that the activities of registered on the other side very very significantly and i will not say anything more than that if war was to break out on whose side were to keep on the one hand it is a nato member but it's also at odds with israel turkey would not like
9:37 am
a nuclear iran on its borders and i don't think that turkey in the end would lend. capabilities or preventing capabilities to either so my guess is that in a situation like this. turkey would take a neutral position when it will missions we knew we had of them aside was to promote ties between israel and lifting the states so how would you see the current policy of what many say is israel's isolation particularly with regard to its former allies egypt and turkey. look upon this in a different light than you have just. mentioned if i would look at the situation israel is in today compared to what it was in before the peace process began in one nine hundred seventy seven seventy eight when egypt launched its initiatives towards israel i think the two situations are not comparable we lived for thirty
9:38 am
years from forty eight to seventy seven seventy eight in the situation of isolation we are not isolated today in the region we have our differences we have more than just differences we have bones of contention with some of the countries like with turkey we have gone through a very difficult time and this was egypt is concerned egypt is also going through a very difficult time and i don't think that it's in the interest of egypt to abrogate the israeli egyptian peace treaty egypt does not need a war now on its northern borders since you retired from the side you have been weighing in if a genuine interest among some the reins and some israelis to promote peace i have many iranians in international fora not had private relations or private contacts with the rainy and there are many iranians the way i see it who would like the present confrontation between israel and iran to gradually end and
9:39 am
create a new situation the likes of which we had in from forty eight to seventy eight because iran and israel basically do not have bones of contention we know there are issues territorial issues between ourselves we don't have other kinds of issues which we know we have ideological issues between ourselves and i think it would be wrong for iran to enable ideology to be the main driver of its policies and the calls of serious drawbacks which it has been suffering as a result of putting ideological ideology. on the front burner what are some of the discussions and some of the questions that always at these informal meetings you have the radios who say look israel has no right to exist israel should disappear israel is not a natural entity in the middle east and then you have these same irradiance coming the saying we believe that israel has a nuclear capability israel should sign the n.p.t.
9:40 am
the nonproliferation treaty just as we have i should reveal what it has. called into the role of nations only nations and countries can be members of the n.p.t. so you cannot on the one hand demand that israel should sign the n.p.t. on the other hand deny israel's right to exist and i've said to them that i believe that this is something which is unacceptable a second point has been israel has insisted on its be recognized as a jewish state. and they have said to me look we don't say that france in its title doesn't say the christian state or france or the christian state of britain or the catholic state of germany and so forth and i've said to them that why do you say the islamic republic of iran if you raise the word islamic we will raise the word jewish and they say no that's different why is it different this is the kind of. discussion we have had to put it that way sometimes very very. heated discussion in
9:41 am
your opinion would it be good or bad for israel if assad regime force. let me first say that israel has no way of influencing the results of the present. events in syria i believe that assad is going to fall and i think that ultimately assad will fall in a way which will cause a lot of purchase. and i think that this blood should would have enormous effects on the history of syria and maybe of neighboring countries as well i must it is very likely to have a new tune how will this play into israeli palestinian reconciliation efforts if at all one person i'm not sure how much will have a new leader. certainly i don't think the national has been the most extreme of the leaders of the hamas he's also on record as saying that he's a temporarily to accept a palestinian state in temporary borders which is something which moves in its
9:42 am
significance to a first step in recognizing the fact that the state of israel is here to stay my view is and i know this is not the view which is shared by the government of israel at the moment the ultimately we will have to deal with the actors the way they are and i think the potential of finding ways and means of dealing with them in a way which will not insure the basic interests of israel i find highly of me thank you very much for joining us here on our team thank you.
