evacuation of all non essential u.s. diplomatic stocks and their families from sudan and in a statement issued by washington that said that all u.s. citizens should need to miss it immediately now the u.s. has been refused permission to st louise to sudan this is because the government in khartoum says it can deal with the security situation there where the u.s. marines have arrived in the yemen i kept up some of this despite caused by local human not know may cause that they should be expelled immediately we are hearing from our clyde it will push attacks against the u.s. embassies to be carried out this is why the thought on tuesday the egyptian capital of cairo we're not hearing any egyptian prime minister that even these that some of the thousands of people he took to the scene were in fact paid to do so regardless these protests need at this point to libya where the u.s. ambassador and three other american citizens were killed now the investigation undergoing very testy for people the race to the u.s.
2:03 am
as well as they're going to say they believe that this attack has been thinks of al qaida al qaeda has not taken down with the sponsibility but it has issued a statement in which it says that the attack was in response to the killing of all kind is number two by u.s. marines from libya by them spread across the whole region it hasn't gulf countries such as they have been on somalia iraq pakistan to keep gone's and even a small demonstration intel up is over the weekend there were demonstrations in the french capital of paris there the demonstrations took place here that you can defeat the city council and you. office is being held and it's called and i think with a bit over the weekend the protests it will spread to several other continents including sydney australia where the police five guests on protesters and civil rights they were made the anger that has erupted in
2:04 am
a small city over the scene they say that it appeared on in times of innocence of muslims a person has been wasted in the united states is believed to be the creator of this film he has stated he does not look like the sting of the maid and he is considering actually that he says the whole film and this is in mind keeping the seat although he has said that he would wait for the loss of life so certainly a lot of anger a lot of violence the situation the extremely funny child i think it's safe to say that the city is a region on edge. all right thanks very much for bringing us this update on your reporting from cairo. an american journalist and anti-war activist don de bar says the core of the issue lies deeper than just the film. the movie or actually just the trailer really which is what's been available on you tube may be serving as a catalyst but certainly the animosity goes much deeper and the issues run much
2:05 am
deeper and people do not go into the streets over a movie and bring r.p.g. with them first of all they generally don't carry them around either this is a case of blowback as many people are saying without or someone else being responsible for this and the issue being this movie and then if you look at egypt the situation there is one where the government the president morsi has made a break with the people over two major issues in the last week or two is coming down on the side of the united states over the over the situation in syria and the run with israel neither of which are with the center of gravity exists among the egyptian people and they've had a almost continuing revolution since january february of last year where he each time when they felt the revolution was betrayed they went into the streets so the dynamics underneath this i think are much more complex than this movie first of all in libya al qaida and the united states were allies al qaeda were the ground troops
2:06 am
in the u.s. the air support in the early stage with the united states u.k. and french troops arming and guiding them from february twenty third or on as reported in the pakistani observer back then. is in many people's minds a creature of the united states intelligence operation. keeping up with the escalating tension in the region charlie mcgrath and the pan and the news out of here in the u.s. as it was only a matter of time before unrest in the region. we have this convoluted destabilization throughout the middle east and north africa and you know this is the end result i know this this video this innocence of muslim video is being blamed for all this but i mean really this is a powderkeg looking for a spark i believe that if most if most americans understood what was being done in our name in the stabilizing the middle east and north africa it would be absolutely horrified and what the result can we expect these people you know
2:07 am
a lot of cases you know they have no hope their economies are destroyed they see their calling for poor and invaders in their land flying drones over their country their leaderships being you know assassinated and these forms of government are being installed of course this kind of thing is going to happen i'm surprised it's taken this long and i also wouldn't be surprised if we see it escalate from here if we were going outside in having predator drones blowing up buildings in our neighborhood if we were constantly under for an assault we would take the same position i think that a lot of these people are. and the wake of the violence which started then cairo barack obama said the u.s. doesn't consider it an ally the outrage triggered by you to post it in the states swiftly on did years of efforts by the u.s. government to establish friendly relations with cairo and other muslim communities as a story. anger is rising rage is spreading and american
2:08 am
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 a new beginning between the united states and muslims around the world the new u.s. leader promised to turn the page and mend relations tarnished by george w. bush's war on terror he even granted his first foreign television interview to al arabiya an arabic language channel my job for the muslim world is to communicate with americans are now you're out of washington invested huge resources in building a massive social media presence comprised of nearly two hundred different accounts to spread its message of friendship by the end of last year the u.s. had spent seventy million dollars assisting foreign citizens with the resources to bypass online firewalls and censorship. the bitter irony is that a you tube clip posted by one american instantly buried massive efforts made by the
2:09 am
u.s. government as americans were being held hostage by a small group of extremists people here in america think when they put their views on you tube and now the technology is such that it can be seen all over the world i think people in. 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 and calls for the moving of those unions because that food american interests and some western interests a cause for war and the invasion of iraq as we have seen destruct. no progress on the peace lebanon palestine i think the spark for it to you know all come out in
2:10 am
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 bush shutdown but tensions in the muslim world seem to be only increasing there has been a lot of simmering nancy american feeling a right across the entire arab world it's their worst in pakistan where polls show they were ninety percent of pakistanis feeling americans their primary an enemy america's never loved bloggers in the area and it's made a lot of enemies in the arab spring countries america helped revolutionize the line between friend and foe has blurred despite all the time and money washington has spent using the internet to promote its friendly foreign policy the world wide web also served as the platform that enabled one american extremist to infuriate millions overseas in the real years of progress. we are now the
2:11 am
u.s. has strongly condemned the film in an effort to calm the anti-american fury u.n. secretary general ban ki moon also slammed the production saying it was deliberately designed to sow bigotry and bloodshed there was also reaction from russia with president putin saying all governments should work to prevent religious provocation. if history doesn't react in a timely and tough manner to provocations that are directed against the religious feelings of people then what happens is that the humiliated and insulted ones start to defend their own interests sometimes this can lead to wide bloodshed we feel the region could fall into chaos which is exactly what's happening now in this respect i'd like to remind the rulers of these new governments and states that under one series changes that they should not forget. their personal responsibility for what's going on in their territories which is the picture now we're also closely

2:14 am
a final point this is the european union for many decades now has played a game of smoke and mirrors whenever there's a crisis whenever there's a problem to be solved it rearranges the institutional furniture. germany's federal court has backed a motion considered crucial for containing the continent's debt crisis it approved a new five hundred billion euro bailout fund for struggling eurozone countries however the ruling comes with several conditions including a restriction on the size of berlin's contribution that regard that. law and the school oriental and african studies in london says the motion of won't bring any long term solutions to the past is an imperfect guide to the future so far the german parliament has always approved. i think we are reaching a point where germany has spent so much money that she's locked in parliamentarians will continue granting further assistance every time the only way of getting out of

2:16 am
the economic and monetary union later paving the way for the creation of the single currency but today mounting a euro skepticism has spread to even countries considered poor eurozone nations including the very one where it all began so i don't know at this moment what the best is for europe i have my jobs because of greece. and the show and the netherlands it's a pro european country of course it shouldn't come to the stream level that we see that greece now in a repeated fashion this annoyance among the dutch at having to bail out greece again and again has reached a point where some dutch customers refuse to pay the bill of greek restaurants because well they've already paid with bailout money taking on a euro skeptic anti brussels stat has become a popular campaign strategy from the far right freedom party which is called for the return of the dutch guilder to the once fringe leftist socialist party openly challenging the german led a stare the strategy for europe well we're protesting against our liberal
2:17 am
government you know made to distinction between the rich. part of the problem is you know did europe brussels has a lot of power now and people feel like they have nothing to say about what's going on with their money or we cannot make our own decisions anymore and we can see in europe that. voters. are becoming less convinced of the rationality of continued austerity policies and begin to vote for parties who oppose the logical for stereotypic we've seen it in france we've seen it in regional elections in germany which makes america very worried about the elections next year in the end it was the center right liberals who claimed victory followed closely by the center left labor party both viewed as pro europe but the fact remains that discontent has risen to the surface among citizens of

middle east in spain and greece everywhere there's a confrontation going on against the one percent so the idea that somehow the u.s. is exceptional and it's just a small passing phase i mean the u.s. is part of the world capitalist economy in the world characteristic of using the state of the last profits rule in the end we just get more as we just you know home foreclosures we just get mass unemployment get all this wealth exist and it is not utilized for good and so absolutely we're going see it may take on a different character in organized labor but chicago the chicago teachers strike they become more crowded than it was in the early days of our if i also read that there's going to be more confrontations as the system dies. and he will be following events planned by the occupy wall street movement in new york and other cities across the country so stay with us for more. the general spread world wide. the ninety nine percent versus the one percent with all the money. are they getting

equality into the economy. with the recession ahead can we afford not to. the old you. are too. western sanctions on iranian oil seem to be having little effect as sales increase to more than one million barrels a day the us hoped strict regulations would force the iran to hold its atomic ambitions which it maintains are peaceful meanwhile washington extended the exemption waivers for japan and several other nations as they rely heavily on iranian oil to mao policy director of the national iranian american council believes iran's nuclear program hasn't been thrown off course. i don't know that you could actually look at the lost revenues from oil exports and say iran has taken away money from its nuclear program or reduced money for military spending
2:23 am
because frankly with the threat of war i think iran is probably continuing down the path that has already already has been on which sanctions you know there's no perfect sanctions regime there's always going to be a whole series always going to be loopholes there's always going to be this game of whack a mole where iran responds in the u.s. tries to ratchet up and you're never going to get a perfect embargo. so i think that the question the question is ok now you have these sanctions what do we do with these are we going to leverage these or is this a repeat of what we had with iraq where we did a great job of restricting oil sales and then doing well for food at the end of the day that didn't actually yield anything but massive humanitarian suffer suffering and then eventually this movement for disasters invasion. the russian gas giant gas promise fighting against attempts to investigate concerns over the company's pricing policy european commission officially announced a formal inquiry into the russian state fuel supplier alleging gas problem posed unfair or cost on its customers however
