the british government's costly foreign aid program was labeled a waste of taxpayers' money as a new study claims that most of the cash sent abroad doesn't reach those in need. pushing up walls and tearing families apart these are all continues to build a separation barrier is leading from the syrians in gaza and the west bank and able to reunite with relatives. and also watch what you say will report on surveys suggesting that americans feel political correctness has made that you are so hyper sensitive nation where people can speak their mind.
international news and comment live from moscow this is all she was me your leadership of all our hello and welcome to the program concerns are rising in britain where prime minister david cameron's costly foreign aid program has come under fire for not helping the poor around the world a study by a center right thing says the billions of tax payers money is being used as a tool to promote the good image of the coalition government and my colleague bill don't discuss dacia without his laura smith. well let me give you three quite stark examples the first is the example of bush's eight ethiopia which totals three hundred million pounds evidence studies b.b.c. investigation shows that in fact it wasn't used to help poor people it was used by the ethiopian government meant a corrupt hold on power the u.k.
government refutes that saying that the money doesn't even go through the government but according to human rights watch they say it does and this investigation showed that in fact supporters of the opposition weren't allowed to receive food or seeds or fertilizer which is what the aid was destined for a second example is in india a three hundred eighty eight million pound project aimed at improving indian schools the government here hailed as a huge success they said more children are going to school as a result of it but the indian government says that around seventy million pounds of it was either stolen or lost much of it was allocated to schools that didn't even exist and that some of it went to by cause for dignitaries officials in india again the u.k. government refutes that and nigeria thirdly one hundred million pound project improve again the quality of education in nigeria an independent report showed that
actually the results of it had been not to improve the quality of education at all and they awarded the project in nigeria their second lowest rating again the government here refutes that same report sources that only visited a handful of schools so it's a pretty damning indictment of what's happening to all this money. vall sum of money how does it exactly help the image or british politicians. well of course the conservative party here in this country has an image of sort of stingy only wanting to help the rich and it does go a long way towards getting rid of an image like that it shows that politicians and mike not the most sort of make them seem very generous and this information does suggest that the government doesn't really care where the money goes or how it's ministers or how effective it is it only cares that it seems to be giving this city the study is really quite critical isn't it does it suggest should stop helping communities abroad all together i know it's not suggesting that it's just
suggesting that the money is allocated and administered much more efficiently of course this is all happening against a backdrop of austerity at home and many people are saying you know forget forget giving money abroad let's keep it here at home where it's really needed at the moment so here we see a reduction in benefits even for very poor people we're seeing tax hikes we're seeing raids on particularly public sector pensions so a lot of people say keep this money at home don't give it don't give it abroad and the aid budget is continually increasing it's now going to be no point seven percent of gross national income and that equates to five hundred pounds a year for every household in a lot of people say you know we could do something here at home with that five hundred pounds hundreds of thousands have run it in gaza celebrating the anniversary of big fatah movement this was the first such a vent allowed by hamas since two thousand and seven children out of their arrival
from this trip it follows a major listened to my son bring in the west by as the two movements continue their efforts at reconciliation and their fight for palestinian statehood and political analyst sena nuri sense it's about time that the two groups put their differences aside. hamas will have to look in to two for the hand they are and will have to look into the hamas in the eye and both sides have to agree on only one thing we don't need more of the consolation talks we don't need more the conciliation agreements because there were so many agreement signed between the two parties but not one of them has been honored or implemented when hamas cannot take over palestine and the concerns of netanyahu are baseless and groundless he's the only israeli leader who has been giving support to hamas or not only to him that's what i do every extremist group on the palestinian side simply because he's dumping the palestinian moderates is dumping the leadership of president abbas he's dumping the poor political negotiations with the with the palestinians and he's carrying on his
own agenda of of increasing the number of do settlements in the west bank even though they are illegally they are illegal under international law because on his policies the set up every chance of reaching a two state solution between the palestinians and israelis if the israeli withdrawal from gaza was based on an agreement with the palestinian authority we have we would have seen a totally different middle east today so israel attempts to see a fully fledged palestinian state come into existence by building barriers between the two sides it's not just lines that's divided but families to. this is the areas crossing one of five land crossings between israel and gaza getting through here is tough you need the rights commission and papers but this crossing does not just separate israel from gaza it also divides families who are trapped on either side of the border. these are the tears of a boy who hasn't seen his father in three years mohammed left gaza in search of
a better life for his family but what he found on the other side of the border was loneliness and despair and what he left behind destress and fear. i miss my father a lot and i want to see him i'm afraid a lot my father must come back here we must govern live with him but he can't come and we can't go. all they have now to remind him of him are photographs and the occasional phone call. loved me i can't live like this anymore i'm sick i'm having a nervous breakdown this happens when a man is very sad and when he has a lot of pressure on his soul and heart. this family is just one of thousands torn apart by israel's separation policy that makes it almost impossible to move between the west bank and gaza it was only after mohamed had moved that he found out his family could not follow because while he and one of his children have west bank
identity papers his wife and four other children don't for reasons unknown to them . it was a big surprise for me they told me there is a possibility of changing it so i sent the papers up until now they have the file but they refused to give permission for them to come i can't give up my kids but i also want to give them a future. israel says the west bank is a closed military zone and it has the right to prevent people from entering it even those from gaza but palestinians have extensive family ties in both areas and the policy affects just about everyone there are a number of policies that explicitly say that family separation is not a justification for being allowed to enter the west bank so even if there's no serious security claim against an individual even if there's no question that that mother is separated from her child that's not enough to justify a travel international law protects freedom of movement and israel itself has
recognized guards in the west bank as a single territorial unit but that's not enough to guarantee something people in the west of the world take for granted a couple from different cities wanting to get married or a father looking for work. the children miss him so much they hold his pictures and cry when they speak with him on the phone this is that it's not coming back and he says i can't i want to bring it all to the west bank i want to go and live with him it will be safer for the children and they have a better life. that. it's a choice no father should have to make to be separated from his family so he can provide for them or join them and together face a bleak future. for our t. is wrong gods are. now water is a statement of financial one person could be an insult for someone else that's a view of political correctness that appears to be taking hold in america where
some now say the phenomenon has gone too far in a burden i investigates why a nation that prides itself on its freedom of speech has become so sensitive. america is a country that pioneers freedom of expression but is the rising tide of political correctness reigning in the right to say what you think white people do well to hold back to. to actually speak their mind it's almost as though you have a sort of a code to follow sometimes you want to call a spade a spade and sometimes you want to call it trouble according to risk news and poll the majority of citizens think the us is overdosing on p.c. turning the land of the free into a nation of hyper sensitive sissies. were even corn chips can cause mass controversy in this ad a priest substituted to read zero for the eucharist the body of christ where the commercial was created for a possible super bowl broadcast but after an uproar among catholics frito lay

that might support claims that nicolas sarkozy accepted fifteen million viewers from naama khadafi to finance his presidential and. a lot of them right. so how much does it take to get into russian politics how many hours of hard work and how many patriotic deeds does it take to become one of the people who make the decisions in the world's largest country well i'll tell you how much it takes exactly seven point five million euros russia's federal investigative committee has a stablish that allegedly hey of and constantine should show of from fear russia and the commies prospectively promised for a fee to get a businessman on to their party's electoral lists giving him a spot in the lower house of the duma the investigators have forwarded the state
duma an official request to strip the two m.p.'s of their parliamentary immunity and you're darn right they better street have their parliamentary immunity stripped i mean what's worse than government corruption some people in the government being so corrupt they can actually sell the government itself to someone for a fee so. this higher level needs to be punished severely breaking rocks in siberia or worse sounds pretty good to me tolerably flagrant corruption does not a great civilization make but that's just my opinion. your geography is great to have you with it is the french quarter is waiting to hear evidence that former president nicolas sarkozy received fifty million euros in campaign finance from the late libyan leader muammar gadhafi years before helping to topple him that locations were made by lebanese born businessman while on trial
in a separate money laundering case and christoph bug the year truth editor of french will express says that while there legations are being taken seriously hard proof has yet to be presented. it's true that libya under gadhafi most of generated lots of dirty money with a system in place and poured cash into western countries look at the solution contribution to sarkozy's campaign fifteen million euros the maximum presidential campaign expenditure allowed is twenty two million years fifty million that's more than double what it would be so this left over money certainly didn't go towards a campaign but instead ended up in someone's pocket returned to prove his need and as of now there is only a statement by one man on trial who's tried to blame someone else to shift the attention away from himself which carries no legal weight if you will and let's now take a quick look at some other stories from around the world this hour but is all is like president says that president hugo chavez could be sworn in by the supreme
court at a later date if he's not able to take the hours of office next week the news comes amid conflicting reports on travis's health has severe respiratory complications following a long impression of course during his cancer treatment in cuba but it's all in lore says that if the president is unable to be present during his inauguration a new election must be announced within thirty days. nato has begun deploying surface to air missiles and troops on the turkish border with syria the bloke approved the reinforcements last month after unquote requested support from its allies plaistow claims the move is purely defensive but some countries including russia say the deployment will only serve to escalate the syrian conflict and stoke tension in the region some also fear a foreign intervention is in the making. second to nobody and that's not how the gym approaching ranks on the list of the world's most powerful people according to a leading u.s.
think tank because salton sea says no person has consolidated or more domestic and power and she's going to check on our reports. it was a international political thing tenure asia group that came up with a list of the world's most powerful individuals with the russian president at the top of that list then they decided they couldn't leave him there so they put mr nobody at the top of this so was it was in his second to mr weller mrs nobody according to this big tank and to the foreign policy magazine that published the list authors explain that they left the top position empty because the modern world has no clear leaders they said they also said that they based their choice of names on that list on the individual's ability to single handedly quote bring about change that significantly affect the lives and fortunes of large numbers of people of the russian president followed by u.s. federal reserve chairman ben bernanke before the influence the organization has on the u.s. economy and by extension on the global economy german chancellor angela merkel for
policies that are quote the glue that binds europe and us press mark obama he ranks the fifth on the list and then you have the head of the european central bank the chinese communist party leader and others. stripped of his seven tour de france titles for using steroids council said by the lance armstrong is said to be considering publicly admitting his guilt as a reporter at all two dot com quote we. also have a friend of the famously eccentric russian businessman sergei polsky who has been arrested in cambodia for allegedly threatening local sailors with violence says the tycoon was simply making too much noise during new year's celebrations. and a fight to bring down the crime rate in mexico local authorities destroyed thousands of guns pointed out why i talked to you know.
us human rights groups and even some officials are crying foul after president obama extends the military's authority to indefinitely detain terror suspects including americans without children trial the national defense authorization act of twenty thirteen also allows for the notorious gone tunnel of a military prison to remain open despite the president's own pledge to shut down the facility years ago some americans fear they could now face prosecution for they have. to sort of i think. my government disapproves of one of those activities were supporting wiki leaks and your analysts are also bradley manning and as you probably are you know many people and our government have declared them a terrorist group and julian assange. is extremely scary and certainly could be used against their people like me and my international team there seems to be no backbone either in the administration or in congress to
actually stand by civil liberties and the constitution and basic human rights lives are being used as a political football and to really sort of hold up this false and this hedge my power and political realisation that it's no longer all or what mainstream media in this country they're not reporting real news and critical news so the general public is really has no idea i just how serious this assault on our liberties so you more people were here if they actually knew but they're not getting that nudes . the notorious hacktivist group anonymous has promised to shake up the internet and the need was little sign about tonks motivated by social and political issues overseas america is where producer blake says they have to find it money to gain some good press and twenty twelve people with this group or who are aligning with this group are doing stuff where. the majority of people at least in our society might actually accept with what they're doing we saw that just last month after the
newtown shooting when the westboro baptist church said look we're going to go over to connecticut and we're going to protest use the morial services and not in this pretty much send out a call to arms of immediately they were anonymous from all over the country who actually traveled to newtown and were not just on the internet but they're in real life trying to stake out members of the westboro baptist church so they can alert other people of where they're going to be how they're planning on protesting what they were going to do to demonstrate a lot of people don't realize that because a lot of people think these are just some nerdy computer half truths that are hiding behind civilians in the united states who only care about you know the walls if it where but no actually there are you know thousands upon thousands of people spread out over the course entire world who are making sure that people still have open access to information that people are safe that people can can figure out how to get by these hardships when government regimes step in and try to censor the internet or you know like we saw in gaza kill innocent civilians and she's
very good resident asked people in new york how they feel about those so-called toxic. the hacking collective anonymous issued a statement warning the world to expect them in two thousand and thirteen is that a good thing this week let's talk about that it is an all course of business that they interfere with they can write their congressman they can vote. i work for the government i don't appreciate people hacking us we've got people's personal information that has to be protected that these people they decided hey i want to take that now that's their information because they've decided to take the law into their own hands this is ok yes definitely keep on going why are they important in
the world today well because to bring a certain information to the public. because of the activities social injustice is real thing and so something has to be done if you like if we have the means to do it then we should do it what about the fact that they do it anonymously they don't show their face or their name do you think that they have to because what they're doing is illegal or do you think they should show their names and faces well i think showing their names and faces would just block them out blacklist them and stamp them out so i think that's the reason why it to be anonymous i think they're meddling kids legally should not be doing what they're doing definitely but so do we just let governments and corporations do whatever they want unchecked no not in check but do it legally through the law and follow the guidelines that are set before us for example with the united states were built on the constitution and that's how we have to follow the law through that i'm against anything illegal just
because i like to follow rules and i don't want to be a put in jail or i wouldn't want to be put in jail even if it does mean sticking out for other people i think it's a good thing they should continue to do what they're doing what about the people who say that they're just muddling kids. well i think a lot of people or ignorant to the reason that they're protesting. i think what they say makes a lot of sense and i think people need to do more research on just the exactly what the true purpose is love them or hate them anonymous has promised to put on a good show for twenty thirteen we'll just have to wait to see if they live up to that promise. and coming your way to breaking the set with all season i have a mosque and state and.

any time anywhere. you live on one hundred thirty three bucks a month for food i should try it because you know how fabulous i'd like. to eat i mean ten pounds i believe that i'm still the same thing really messed up. in the old story so personally apologize if. the worst you are going through. right now sort of a. radio guy and pull a veil minestrone click. what you want to quote for about a good cause you've never seen anything like this i'm told. look up guys i'm having martin in the spring and asides where some interesting news
that broke yesterday that you may have missed her and the former president of france nicolas sarkozy has received over sixty five million dollars in funding from former libyan dictator moammar gadhafi this is all poured into a businessman who has been implicated in some of france's biggest international arms scandals because it is proof that sarkozy received the money during his two thousand and seven presidential campaign as well as during his presidency but it seems like even the outrageous sum of sixty five million dollars still wasn't enough to prevent france from spearheading nato bombing campaign in libya and the ousting of gadhafi in two thousand and eleven i guess money can't buy loyalty not that it ever should maybe. that's the take away from this greed driven failure and enough of that let's break the set.
all right so every day i keep asking you guys to write me and let me know you think about the show well yesterday after my segment on paranoia damaging the truth movement i've been getting a lot of hate mail may explain one point that may have gotten lost in what i said i'm not trying to call anyone's beliefs crazy i'm trying to make us smarter and more critical thinkers on a side note i think alex jones and in four wars have done a lot of great crucial work that has woken up a ton of people for years and years however there seems to be a movement of people who immediately seize on every single bad thing that happens including hurricanes mass murders and assert that they're all being fixed by the government to fulfill an overarching agenda and i mean immediately like in the minutes following these disasters before any of the facts are even laid out healthy skepticism and criticism about the government is absolutely m. heritage in this day and age government narratives are not to be trusted but before you start making speculative claims you need to be armed with facts this is about question.
