u.k. government is accused of wasting billions of pounds of foreign aid not caring where the cash ends up as long as it's in a positive light. is deploying troops along turkey's border with syria. for help to fend itself from the conflict next door. the palestinian authorities official renaming of the state of palestine does little to help the families of israel's pows pollutants. and also reporting the french film started out arrives in russia amid speculation he's come to receive a russian passport after putting in
12:01 pm
a tax route. around the world online on satellite this is a t.v. twenty four hours a day live from moscow the u.k. government's charitable enterprises abroad could be doing nothing to help the world's pull in fact a center right think tank says the billions of pounds in taxpayers' money being spent and part of a p.r. campaign to promote the image of the government when earlier i discussed with smith when exactly this cash is ending up. well let me give you three quite stark examples the first is the example of british 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
12:02 pm
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
12:03 pm
and they awarded the projects 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 so vast sums 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 stinginess and only wanting to help the rich and it does go a long way towards getting rid of an image like that it shows that that politicians are magnanimous sort of make them seem very generous 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's seen to be giving this city the study is really quite critical isn't it does it suggest the u.k. should stop helping communities abroad altogether i know it's not suggesting that it's just suggesting that the money is allocated and administered much more
12:04 pm
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're saying we're duction same 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 a broad and the 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 note has begun deploying surface to air missiles on turkey's border with syria the alliance approved the reinforcements last month after requested support nato claims the move is to help defend its member from the conflict in syria germany and the netherlands are preparing to ship more patriot batteries next
12:05 pm
week six units are due to be operational by the end of january but moscow said the deployment will only serve to escalate tension in the region during the psalter middle eastern history and politics professor from university says nato will have no excuse to use them. there is no possibility at all no likelihood that syria will attack turkey the only circumstances in which those missiles would be used was would be if there were a nato attack initiated from turkey into syria and then of course syria would strike back the situation has changed i mean it's quite clear that from the beginning of this crisis that this and the syrian coalition did want to attack syria but i think that the sect this government stayed in place for the last two years despite everything being thrown at the fact the syrian army has not disintegrate the fact that we've seen virtually every single day news of most terrible atrocities being carried out by these armed groups the fact these armed groups have rejected the authority of the council formed in doha the fact that the ha council has no support inside syria up to
12:06 pm
a kind of very clear message to the americans in particular that they have to kind of change the course in syria and come up with something different i think that libya in particular had a very very significant effect on american thinking because the americans back these groups in libya and one of them to a panic children ambassador and this caused great shock in washington and so when the americans look at the situation and we know that there are voices inside the ducange reaction when the nato secretary general anders fogh rasmussen is one of them we know that britain and france you know talk in a silly belligerent fashion but the case the situation is in washington and i don't think the americans have any interest in taking this any further because they know perfectly well that to actually intervene in syria would trigger off a major regional crisis much much bigger than we're already seeing. sutter has held a mass rally in garza a stronghold of its palestinian political rival hamas thousands of fatah supporters flooded the streets for the first time in years they were celebrating the forty
12:07 pm
eighth anniversary of the movement which was removed from power in gaza after a two thousand and seven election welcomed the rally is a renewed attempt by the rival palestinian parties to reconcile and find ways to share power israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu is concerned have mass viewed by israel as a terrorist group could take over palestine political analyst in the near he says netanyahu sphere is a baseless hamas will have to look to the hand they are in fact that 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 but how it's going to take over palestine the concerns of netanyahu are baseless and groundless he's the only israeli leader who has been giving support to hamas i'm not only to him that's what i do every extremist group on the palestinian side simply because he's dumping the
12:08 pm
palestinian moderates is dumping the leadership of president abbas he's dumping the put the political negotiations with the with the palestinians and he's carrying on his own agenda of increasing the number of the wood settlements in the west bank even though they are illegally they are illegal under international law he carries on his policies set up every chance of reaching a state solution between the palestinians and the 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 president mahmoud abbas is officially change the name of the palestinian administration to the state of palestine but despite this and the recent status upgrade by the u.n. the nation still remains all united is on his policy reports thousands of families are torn in two by israeli borders. this is the erez crossing one of five land crossings between israel and gaza getting through here is tough you need the right
12:09 pm
permission 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 go and 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
12:10 pm
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 on 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 and there are a number of policies that explicitly say that family separation is not
12:11 pm
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 gaza in the west bank as a single territorial unit but that's not enough to guarantee something people in the rest 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 these pictures and cry when they speak with him on the phone this is that it's enough come back and he says i can't i want to bring you all to the west bank who want to go and live with him it would 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 him and together face a bleak future policy r.t.
