12:01 am
fortunately live from moscow nine am in the russian capital i'm marina joshie and a further escalation of the crisis in egypt the country stop judiciary have gone on strike to protest president morsi decree that greatly enlarged his power morse's move set off a nationwide wave of violence rallies with tens of thousands of egyptians calling for the islamist leader to step down journalist bill truth has the latest from cairo and we've had two kyrie's major courts with the country's major courts the constitutional court and the appeals court say they are going to strike because the judges themselves are also used to on a partial strike the journey to see the kids and their own so cool strike two seeing really quite a lot of movement that the major sectors within egypt society which the president is really going to have to do with as things escalate on the streets as well these countries do continue between protesters and the police which started early last week police have firing excessive amounts of. takeouts and by chance the dozens of
12:02 am
protesters who are still on the streets reporting from the seeing my colleague tom barton has moved here in the streets of central cairo the sights the sounds and the smells of protest and of civil disorder are very loud and very clear tucker a square is just over there and a large crowd of protesters are fooling stones at the police who are giving just as much back picking up stones themselves and firing back along with them as vans firing gas canisters into the crowds the stench of to gas is thick in the air the police are protest as everyone alike is as they are ice and noses will shrink from a list a cast there's more tough cocktails trying through the air as well all the pavements have been ripped up as have some of the branches of the trees it's a real street but these people absolutely determined the crowds of protesters that mohammed morsi was changing the way to make that declaration that he did once again
12:03 am

as early as thursday will lead to more violence blogger and journalist while eskandar says there's a growing feeling that real democracy is a long way off. the fact of the matter is that everything is going in the opposite direction of what the revolution is called for the constituent assembly itself is a reflection of how unwilling to share power the muslim brotherhood are and along with morsi. he says that he will get back hours as soon as parliament is elected but he's not allowing you to share in writing the constitution so this to me seems like a false promise about giving back power because the one thing he can do is allow the judges to write their own constitution and share power and he's not doing that the judiciary has been a tool for the mubarak regime but if you come to think of it when people protested mubarak they were protesting police brutality and we see that morsi is giving promises to the police that they will act with impunity and does not want to bring

12:07 am
twenty years ago has had with one fundamental rule which is build and expand more and more israeli settlements it's a view echoed among the political left in israel the israeli government led by a minute is not ready to pay the price of going to the. way they are doing it now not because they are so happy to do that but because it is an outlet for them to achieve something in the international arena which they cannot achieve in the by literally. netanyahu wants to start at the beginning renegotiating issues like settlements borders and jerusalem but the palestinians say these have already been discussed and he simply moving the process backwards and with israeli prime minister netanyahu widely slated to win january's elections more and more palestinians fear that despite the fanfare in new york their reality on the ground
