news live from moscow this is all she with me hello and welcome to the program israel is continuing its strikes on gaza with at least three palestinians reported killed this follows wednesday's. ten dead including the military leader of hamas israel has also warns that a ground operation is on the table barton is and tell of it. overnight the bombardment continued from the air israeli air strikes killed three more militants those belonging to the same militant group in gaza as jobbery the head of hamas his military wing who was killed in a targeted airstrike yesterday afternoon there's also reports confirmed by the israeli military of continued shelling via the israeli navy gunboats off the coast
and fixed land based artillery pieces from southern israel from hamas twenty five rockets were fired into southern israel over the night israeli missile defenses trying to shoot those down some of them land landing in southern israel as well this immediate escalation came about yesterday afternoon loud explosions rocking all the built up areas there about ten people reported killed including civilians the great fear now that a ground invasion is imminent israeli sources have said that they're fully prepared to start a garden of asian if they deem it necessary and they have called up reservists possibly the last time that we've seen any operation of this intensity was over the new year of two thousand and eight to nine when israel launched operation cast lead pretty much following the same pattern as we've seen so far with
a ground operation following the same stated objectives as israel says now to destroy the terrorist infrastructure on the ground in gaza meeting heavy fighting there was a lot of civilian casualties and damage as a result. the u.n. security council has talent agent closed door meeting after palestinians called for an end to israel's offensive and he's going next check our reports from washington the u.s. is supporting israel despite ask. the u.s. response to the shelling of gaza was easy to predict and it says we stand by our partners in their right to defend themselves against terrorism the u.s. representative to the u.n. has released a statement saying the u.s. expresses regret at the death and injury of innocent israeli and palestinian civilians caused by the violence there but made it clear that washington is clearly blaming the palestinians for the israelis shelling of gaza palestinians are asking the security council to stop israel and what they call quote war crimes perpetrated
by israel against the palestinian people israel of course is saying that the airstrikes are a justified response to the rocket fire from gaza in two thousand as for all it's worth noting that this wednesday while israel was storming gaza from air president obama was holding a news conference the president received no question about gaza and there was almost nothing on t.v. here about it i've been watching very closely the israeli defense minister who has indicated that this could be just the beginning mr brock who broke the last this really ground attack on gaza four years ago this three week operation cast lead in which more than one thousand and one hundred palestinians and twelve israelis were killed the u.s. has basically told us well whatever you do to the palestinians in gaza we're not going to polls when i think intervene and the usual line is the one that we heard this wednesday and that is we stand by always really partners in the right to
defend themselves against terrorism but does the word terrorism in this context justify any actions by israel because it very much seems like it from the u.s. point of view and that is what many people don't understand but it's also interesting how washington chooses which acts of terror to condemn this terrorism and which ones not to condemn for example suicide bombings that happen in syria on a regular basis the u.s. does not hurry to condemn. acts of terror so the word terrorism may have different interpretations in washington often an act of terror may not be condemned as such if it's committed against someone designated by the you was an enemy hamas has responded to the israeli assault was rocket fire reportedly killing three israelis and then my colleague spoke to israeli defense forces spokesperson lieutenant colonel of the taliban the child and he asked her if deadly actions were
justified. i think that seven hundred rockets a year launched from gaza into israel do not demand justification we have one million israelis which are under immediate danger and they have between fifteen and fifty seconds this more than justifies this operation we took this operation in order to defend the people of israel and can you confirm that you continue this operation with ground invasion. ground invasion is an option we currently have an operational assessment following the assessment will decide how to proceed. all the options are currently on the table what do you have to achieve by an invasion as it's going to provoke a massive and just turned into a just a cycle of violence and death well since hamas encouraged the firing of the rockets into israel don't you think it's a bit late for that i mean we are here in the field of defense operation in
order to protect three million israelis that are almost under this rocket fire we currently are continuing the operation a few hours ago we targeted underground tunnels and launching pads in these launching pads there were rockets of different types some came from iran i'm referring to the farther five these are rockets with a very long range that can merely reach the city of tel aviv we cannot allow this situation to continue our country deserves and has the right to defend its people statistically many would say that the rocket attacks on israel have had not as much on the facts as what's happening with the retaliate three attacks from israel against gaza we're getting reports of as you're civilians dying i spoke to an eyewitness earlier who were saying that even children were caught up in this what do you say about this i believe that there are casualties on both sides in the past decades now we don't have any intention to target people that are not involved directly in terror but hamas is the terror going to zation that shows. deliberately
to locate its warehouses of rockets its facilities of terror its outposts right in the middle of the population the gazans shows hamas hamas terror terror is rocket fire we will not comply with this kind of situation. and the night right after the assault started. the documentary filmmaker and actually working in gaza and he sat palestinian people are terrified and expecting things to get what. we've seen and absolutely over bud's and hospital system health system here in gaza an emergency crisis status was launched by that within an hour of the operation being launched as you said we've seen at least three dead children at least one woman we've seen at least ninety injured in just one hospital we've seen victims many
people giving. reports of white phosphorous maybe being used again here on the gaza strip we've seen naval attacks attacks i have to be honest with you the situation is very very grave and the palestinian gazan population are frankly being terrorized internationals in the gaza strip record an activist on the gazan people believe that this is the beginning of another full scale war akin to that of winter two thousand and eight winter two thousand and nine named operation costs so i have to tell you the situation is expected to get graver and graver. to get line mandates on the situation in gaza you can always log on to our website home will be closely following this story and stay with it. now the u.s. feeling the aftershock of violence antos terrace the press has some of the demonstrators and more than twenty countries joined forces coming out full take a little of the twenty four hours trying to spending council skybox when

a bit fishy to me so instead of say regulating prices are god forbid using the money from the welfare cuts to create jobs so people can earn a living for themselves rather than rely on handouts london has decided to make itself some official get to. what is to call a place where everyone from a certain economic classes forcibly shove to although this may sound like some sort of help from the government it seems to me like a means to get rid of the poor rather than trying to make the poor less poor but that's just my opinion. welcome to. science technology innovation all the developments around russia we've got the future covered.

good afternoon welcome to capital account i'm lauren lyster here in washington d.c. these your headlines for wednesday november fourteenth two thousand and twelve u.s. president barack obama is reportedly looking for one point six trillion dollars and more revenue for uncle sam when he goes into those fiscal cliff negotiations on friday that's double what was talked about with g.o.p. leaders in the summer of two thousand and eleven according to the wall street journal so he is doubling down. and i'll bring everyone in to show that right away so we can give folks some short lived for the holy see. we shall see about that but in the meantime the fiscal cliff is surpassed the eurozone crisis as the top concern for business leaders but was there a decision made recently they diverted a pro long recession for western economies and we just haven't heard much about it
chris whalen senior managing director of capital partners is here with an answer and to analyze impending threats and could housing be the antidote to the fiscal cliff it has been suggested as more and more seem to believe us housing is in a recovery our guest is here. for a reality check and bloated bureaucracy we complain about it when it comes to the government but does the problems bill over to public universities the numbers seem to say yes and some professors are revolting we'll tell you about in this change let's get to today's capital account.
as you well know everyone is obsessing over the fiscal cliff from the press to politicians working on a deal to this seventy three percent of conference participants at the wall street journal's c.e.o. council in washington who reportedly said it is their primary concern now while everyone is focusing on how to avert a recession and have their eyes on president obama's press conference today for clues about averting the proverbial cliff was there another hearing on capitol hill that was far more under the radar but dealing with another issue entirely they could give us an indication of where the economy is headed the stronger capital standards in our proposal would significantly lower the probability of banking crises and their associated economic losses. maybe didn't look as sexy is obama's press conference or as the fiscal cliff discussion seems but that was.
