9:06 am
now israel the israeli lobby is very obviously very worried about the status of egypt they want it to be stable and also egypt is used as a political football in america so there's going to be a lot of moving in maneuvering in a very short space of time right now here with our team and coming up in the program epic efforts down the train we look at how president obama has been steadily building times without a country since he came to office only to see his efforts rolling in one fell swoop . the u.s. state department stresses that it had nothing to do with the film that the statement has brought little consolation parties going to cannes reports on the origins of the controversial movie. the anger over the same tired lamb it film has been growing like a snowball so has the confusion over who made it at the beginning our colleagues at
9:07 am
the a.p. news agency reach to the person who posted the video on you tube someone named sambo silly by phone he confirmed that he had made the film identified himself as an israeli american the israeli foreign minister said there was no such israeli citizen and who ever had shot the film was and i quote an unspeakable act then our colleagues tracked down this embassy it was cell number which brought them to the home of someone named nakoula mr nakoula told them that he had produced the film and that he was a christian copt and whatever made the film it's trailer went viral after an egyptian american coptic activist from washington d.c. sent an e-mail to journalists around the world promoting this a climber eleven event and included a link to this fourteen minute clip in egypt journalists translated some of the footage into arabic and brought tested and then it all started when muslims in that part of the world believe that if the film was produced in the u.s. the u.s.
9:08 am
government is responsible and part of the obama administration's damage control work has been to make it clear that they too find this film despicable in hillary clinton's own words disgusting and reprehensible she also said this let me state very clearly and i hope it is obvious that the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video we absolutely reject its content and mass. but the words apparently did not make it to the right ears and the rage went on in egypt in libya in tunisia and in yemen people stormed u.s. embassy despicable violence became the price the leaders of those countries of paid for letting the mob vent out this initially but the u.s. appears to be in a difficult position now they can't really lesh out of the. so are the people there because washington cheered so greatly for the changes that swept the region of the

current levy and government essentially old its power to the united states also there are still questions as to whether it was just the angry mob which attacked the u.s. consulate in libya or whether an organized terrorist group jumped on the bandwagon of this film hysteria and perpetrated the vicious attack the chaos the influx of arms into libya during the war against qaddafi created perfect environment for extremists of all kinds so there's still a web of questions around what happened on nine eleven this year they release of the notorious movie online rapidly diminished years of efforts by the u.s. government to refresh and to stablish friendly relations with nations in the region marina porton explains. anger is rising rage is spreading and american flags are burning throughout the arab world this isn't exactly the type of relationship washington envisioned after barack obama became president i've come here to cairo to seek

9:11 am
on you tube and now that technology is such that it can be seen all over the world i think people in egypt and libya and some of these places don't understand this is not the view of most americans this is not the view of the u.s. government according to many experts a large majority of the arab world has grown too familiar with the anti muslim sentiment america is accused of cementing the policy of the americans towards this part of the world is inadequate and doesn't call for dialogue doesn't call for development doesn't call for progress it calls for the moving of those units because it puts american interests and some western interests a cause for war and invasion of iraq as we have seen destruction of afghanistan no progress on the peace level in pakistan thinks the spark for it to you know all come out in violent forms as we can see now on the screen and this is what's happening within forty eight hours the fury that began in egypt spread to libya yemen lebanon and iran in afghanistan due to push shut down but tensions in the

9:22 am
couple of months we have seen especially on the jobs market a worsening of the situation the fed has decided to go ahead with its stimulus program it's going to be buying up not just bonds but basically all around assets and we're talking about sums of least forty billion dollars a month including in mortgage backed assets of in order to support the real estate market let's listen to a commentary from a scene jacobson from sex of make. short term of course what happens fundamentally here is staged you make money cheaper and as such you will want to see tangible ass's like oil or gas gold all to go off in order to have the system to reset itself so yes it will create an increased appetite but you have to remember this is almost like a science definition of insanity which is state you keep repeating the same experiment expecting different results what i'm trying to say with that is of course this is the third time we do quantitative easing include and then also we
9:23 am
have operation twist so effectually this is going to do nothing to the unemployed in southern europe it is going to do absolutely nothing to the growth of the us may just obstacles still remains in place. my will is take a look at the reaction than does i have been saying the markets have been waiting for this for months now and the spine may happen so the markets will just be bullish about it with a full sea up one point three percent of the x. one point super bustles all leading the gains and markets i mean banking shares a close second of what's happening on the currencies market in the ball is losing value of massively almost one hundred points we could to the euros you can see that this is basically based on the fact that the fed in order to fulfill this system of this program which actually the previous wave was well around six hundred billion dollars it needs to keep the running of the printing press and therefore weakening
9:24 am
of the u.s. currency so that all these massively so is the. it's losing against the russian ruble is stronger against the basket of currencies it's either fifty four kopeks against the euro one of the percent and that's based on a high oil price with light sweet reaching for a second one hundred dollars but bell is now below that slightly but still as you can see there a gain of four almost one full of a barrel for both. leds this is logical would serve pretty much backed by the fact that the us stimulus means better conditions for the economy and therefore higher demand for them. by let's now move to be metals markets and today we're also seeing a continued rally for gold it's been going up massively over the past week on this speculation. financial problems are making you more americans lose faith in the banking system a fresh report from the federal deposit insurance corporation says that the so-called on bank population has grown to eight point two percent of u.s.
