10:01 am
opposition is calling for more protests off the present mercy insisted on planning ahead with a referendum on the new constitution which is viewed by many is discriminatory even his decision to scrap the decree which had granted him almost absolute power was dismissed as a play on words journalist well true in cairo says his unexpected u. turn has failed east tensions. it does come as a bit of a surprise at the moment as people were really thinking the president wouldn't move on his stance against the opposition forces demands yesterday and today they had a meeting which was dubbed the national dialogue meeting between political party leaders the president and his cabinet notably some of the key opposition forces that the national salvation front that are behind the protests and sit ins in the last few weeks cannot present the results of the controversial decoration would be revoked which of course is president morsi sweeping powers which is part of one of
10:02 am
the demands of the opposition forces and widely seen as a good move however they are rendered on the constitution which the opposition forces see to be illegitimate as it was drafted by islamist. constituent assembly would go ahead on the fifteenth and this is why the problem lies the opposition forces replied yesterday saying that the results of the meeting will meaningless as the president hasn't seen to move forward with that demand against this referendum . that it was really just another form of deception this comes off the minute she stepped up security around the presidential palace in the last few days that you see to statement yesterday saying that they were calling for dialogue and this was the only way to get the nation out of its crisis implying that perhaps they were willing to take a role in the ongoing situation in egypt we've seen quite a lot of violence on the streets since this one second of november when this decree was announced by the president as rival groups have met in class which is led to
10:03 am
the deaths of at least seven people on wednesday we have yet to see really what will happen in the in the coming future the president keeps by this referendum. that the opposition forces won't move to really even though we had this development yesterday at this meeting they're still looking at a divided egypt's political deadlock on middle east history professor lawrence davidson says there is no chance of a council referendum and that without dialogue the situation may spiral into civil war. he does later vote goes and you get more shoes forces him to get constitution passed. and i think the opposition knows that he can do that there are four hundred they want to stop that but i do want to protest there is a leadership that was once here is that they want to start the process all over again it was zero so actually they want a new election only one new orleans and new constituent
10:04 am
assembly and a new constitution so what are you going to do you're going to try to kick them out of power if you try to change the match after you release a civil war you risk being the islamist into the streets is enormous population in general. i don't think we're. so we're it's a very very dangerous that you shouldn't judge the high winds which actually our. explorers on earth that looks to me a bit more see that we're going to do something and sessions right you're going to have to talk to him to get up just or so it's not work. now syria's rebels have joined forces on the one military command which they hope will unite diverse groups in the western backed struggle against a president that's at this week the international community again voiced fares that

the syrian government could deploy chemical weapons to defeat opposition fighters something the mascot's denies accounting assesses now whether the chemical austin is a real threat or pretext for intervention. u.s. officials said intelligence agencies have detected that assad's government has been preparing its chemical weapons stockpiles for possible use the obama administration's message to syria the u.s. is ready to act if you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons there will be consequences and you will be held accountable there will be consequences. there will be consequences we have sent an unmistakable message that this would cross a red line next how does america the media quickly picked up on the alarming news of the syrian government's alleged plan citing secret intelligence for fox news confirms that syrian troops now have the deadly nerve agent sarin gas weaponized
10:06 am
and at the ready the syrian government flatly denied the possibility saying it would not use such weapons against its people. we would not commit suicide we feel there's a conspiracy to provide a pretext for any subsequent interventions in syria by these countries during creasing pressure on syria. the syrian government sure knows that if they use chemical weapons it would give nato and some of their arab neighbors who are itching to intervene in syria the green light to go ahead with their plans america's itself says it would be suicidal for them to do so but with the fear and the hype building up over the use of chemical weapons against civilians in syria it seems the u.s. might be preparing grounds to jump the gun on this one the jumping the gun scenario is not new for the u.s. almost twenty years ago the bush administration confidently presented false evidence to invade iraq we have and descriptions of biological weapons factories on wheels and on rails in beijing triggered
10:07 am
a civil war that killed more than one hundred thousand innocent iraqis and here is later all washington had to say about this was the president thought it was correct congress thought it was of course i regret that it turned out a lot of it was wrong in the run up to the iraq invasion to u.s. media was instrumental in selling the case to the public the congress never had any proof ever present ever of weapons of mass destruction all came from tony blair to the bush right now that the u.s. has drawn a red line on syria it has made it clear it's ready to take action but how i'm not going to telegraph in any specifics what we would do in the event of. a credible evidence that the assad regime has resorted to using chemical weapons against their own people but suffice it to say we are certainly planning to. take action if that eventuality were to occur to american warships are
10:08 am
already near the syrian coast with some. thousand u.s. marines and dozens of fighter jets on board on top of that nato is sending american german and dutch batteries of patriot anti-aircraft missiles to turkey's border with syria meaning hundreds more u.s. and european troops will be deployed to the frontier nato says deploying patriot missiles along syrian borders is a defensive step to prevent syria from attacking turkey i don't think there's any requirement whatsoever for patriot batteries on the ground in turkey again the patriot missiles are designed to really protect primarily against incoming theater ballistic missiles or aircraft the syrians are not according to attract the turks the turks of the most powerful military establishment in the region the largest army in nato intervention in syria will be as bad if not worse than what we experienced in iraq the pentagon said they would need seventy five thousand troops to secure syria's weapons of mass destruction the question on everyone's mind is
10:09 am
are they seriously considering that kind of a mess of intervention because that could mean another you rock coming soon an invasion that could be followed by years of bloody civil war in washington i'm going to check on. data about your property e-mails and anything you look up on the internet could soon end up in police hands if you live in britain later we'll look at the draft snooping that's getting your this reaction civil rights campaign that's. also after the break a massive thank you to liberate palestinian lands inch by inch as israel refuses to abandon its something construction. looking at some jokes you simply do not believe the const baek and goodness how they can run oh oh oh oh oh oh oh it's an international sled dog race with
10:10 am
those driving the dogs. coming from as far away as a strand in canada. and the us they come to russia and everybody is so very friendly they welcomed me with open arms and the scenery is so beautiful it's very much like a lot and so i felt at home the first sled dog was brought here from australia now it's trios come to this remote russian village to take part in the race it's not surprising they love it this trail are amazing but even more amazing is the story of how racing first started here atoll it wasn't the top. grazing who set the trail ablaze but a nun and all phones were brought to life. five years ago for a scare of a bill to dock cannell in the village kids from the local open age came around to take care of the dogs and one day they state their life might seem extreme to some
10:11 am
the boys wake up at six to feed the dogs before school in the evening they spend up to three hours training their four legged friends but smother her schedule also encourages her kids to become damp hands on the computer and internet the boys regularly updated their website and they're in touch with that busy mother twenty four seven on the phone itself but children are the most important thing my only interests not play any role anymore and regardless of whether parsky has hoskins win the race or not she hopes the competition will take place in the village next year. but called these dogs and the children it really is not the weaning but truly just the taking part that counts.

this is artie's within. the law is being drawn up in britain which would allow police officials to see who people are e-mailing and when as well as what they're searching for on the web there's a point boy her explains it's causing a divide between those who say it's vital to catch criminals and campaigners who believe private data should stay private. the way it would work is pasta is that the police and security services would have unbridled access to your internet data by obliging mobile phone service providers and internet providers to store that internet history your data for a year now the government say that it's a necessary move in order to safeguard the public and to fight crime that's being organized through the internet increasingly such as that extremism and paedophile rings but civil liberties groups are up in arms about it they say it's an in and
10:13 am
infringement of your civil rights they've called it the snoopers charter and we hit the streets of london a little bit to talk to the general public about what they thought of the prospect of the government being able to snoop in on that e-mail history of their web browsing history and their social networking history let's take a listen to what they told us how would you feel about the police having access to the past internet search history not so good without my consent i think it seems like gave my concern i wouldn't mind seeing right privacy and just. be happy for it i would mind but only if. i'm very conditioned i think you have to have control of one area of your life or look them in one area of interest they have access to areas of ahem secretary to resign may she's behind the draft bill and she's been lobbying it quite aggressively and some critics saying in rather a bizarre fashion actually she said in an interview with the sun criminals terrorists
10:14 am
and paedophiles will want m.p.'s to vote against this bill whereas victims of crime police in the public will want them to vote for it and it's a question of whose side you're on now i've got nick pickles who's the director of civil liberties group big brother watch in the studio here with me now and then here's something to you on are all the people opposed to this legislation criminals terrorists and paedophiles. the home secretary suggests no it's politically ridiculous to say that everybody opposed this bill falls in those categories there are people from every political party senior law enforcement officers technical experts so i think it was a very crude argument above did anybody from the home secretary but we've got interpol saying that cyber crime is now one of the fastest growing criminal activities on the planet i mean the government's right there looking for some sort of solution to this growing problem well in the big think about this if you're looking for a needle in a haystack you don't solve the problem but it looks more we should have
10:15 am
a new powers but they should be used against individuals known operations what this bill proposes is that everybody in the country behavior is monitored all treated as suspects or they have it a very quiet for a virtual idea from the home office and one that might all go to down to well with the rest of the government we've got reports that deputy prime minister nick clegg is preparing to oppose it because of the prospect of infringement of civil rights here in the u.k. . now garza's hamas leadership has vowed to keep fighting until the israeli occupation is over as hundreds of thousands of supporters turned up to celebrate the militant groups twenty fifth anniversary and mass is political leader khaled mashal who runs the organization from qatar is now in gaza for the first time in four decades in a speech labeled as extremist by israel who refused to recognize the jewish state's legitimacy because of its occupation the visit comes with turbulent time for israel
10:16 am
has refused to end its settlement expansion which has been denounced by the international community and announced the building of a new settler homes near east jerusalem on the palestine was granted nonmember observer status when the british m.p. jeremy corbyn says israel is risking isolation. netanyahu seems simply to have not cottoned onto the fact that the vast majority of the rest of the world support. the right of palestine to exist support the right of palestinian working and therefore not to want people in the west bank two state solution is something that everyone is wonderful signed up to but the reality on the ground of still not having complete free movement in and out and the huge number of settlements across the west bank on the settler roads and of course the problems of east jerusalem suggest that it's quite difficult to achieve it unless there's a real will to withdraw the settlements and the public starting to develop and i don't see that will at all with netanyahu if he can't even rely on governments that
10:17 am
are basically quite sympathetic to israel and israel's claims then he's losing out big time all around the world and he just needs to wake up i think the washington support will weigh in very quickly a bomb has been reelected on the reelected president into a second is that his most powerful and i think netanyahu might do well to remember that he also very much involved himself in the internal politics the usa during the election campaign and that can't of been did himself very much the administration the movement around the world for palestine for palestinian people is unprecedented netanyahu should wake up and recognize that i mean while israel exports tons of fruit and vegetables cosmetics and other goods the e.u. every year despite being labeled as made in israel some of these don't exactly originate from that many are produced in settlements considered illegal under international law and now there are calls to ban such exports or at least in force more accurate labeling
10:18 am
a piece on of investigates. produce of israel except this isn't israel this is the jordan valley in the west bank and this farm is deemed illegal under international law the european union imports around three hundred million dollars worth of products from here each year now a group of twenty two n.g.o.s from across europe is looking to highlight the issue and has published a report in which it claims e.u. imports make the settlements viable because they are produced in illegal settlements which are contrary to international humanitarian law should be banned out of the european union now if this is not possible at least the consumers have to have the possibility to. to decide for themselves if they want to buy products which have been produced in illegal settlements your see farms this land is much concerned by the thoughts of european n.g.o.s he says he's here because his government told him it was ok to be here. because i was told he.
10:19 am
saw a circle where i was told i could it's more the state of israel tells me it's time to go i'll go i'm told i'm an occupier when i got here i was nothing if you. live in denmark and the united kingdom goods coming from settlements in the west bank already has to be marked differently to denote that it's not from israel the collective n.g.o.s want to see this implemented europe wide here in europe there are many people with ties to the middle east region and they want to make sure they know exactly where their produce is coming from. are you sure this comes from spain . renee. is a palestinian living in germany she has family in the west bank and says the israeli checkpoints mean palestinian farm is a losing out to the settlers even even the few think they get to jordan they really checkpoints keep them at the checkpoints for days. and then you can't
10:20 am
even say anymore those behind the report into trade between the settlements in europe say they aren't trying to organize any kind of witch hunt we're not talking about boycotting jews over here we're not talking about even boycotting israel itself we're talking about making a difference differentiating between. neagle israeli products which should be watched by european citizens as much the course the short and second my products which are totally illegal and should be banned and people should not buy. our t. . online today there is international role reversal with a warning of a nuclear aggression this time it's on that sounded good on against the u.s. and for tests in the baltic washington accused of double standards and snubbing the u.n. nuclear watchdog as we reported on our website. check out the new let's say it is
