government is accused of wasting billions of pounds of foreign aid not caring where the cash is it seen in a positive light. deploying troops along the border with syria to help to defend itself from the conflict next door we get live analysis on the shortly. the palestinian authority's official renaming as the state a little to help the families of israel's imposed borders. and also reporting the french film star rides in russia amid speculation he's come to receive a russian support. around
the world online on satellite this is. the day it live from moscow the u.k. government's charitable enterprises abroad could be doing nothing to help the world's poor in fact a center right think tank says the billions of pounds in taxpayers' money being spent and then a part of a campaign to promote the image of the government i discussed with smith where exactly this cash is ending up. 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 cement 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. 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
they awarded the project to 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. vance some 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 are magnanimous 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 it is it only has it 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 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 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 and lot of people say you know we could do something here at home with that five hundred pounds nato has begun deploying surface to air missiles on turkey's border with syria the alliance approved reinforcements last month after requested support nato claims the move is to help defend its members
from the conflict in syria will live now to political analyst and he joins me from dubai will picture. a mini defensive weapons is their deployment really a big deal here. patriot missiles that are deploying right now in turkey. have nothing to do with any threat from syria i believe that these missile batteries are being parked in turkish territory to prepare for the possibility of a nato airstrike further down the timeline so as we anyone with any military knowledge or any geopolitical. knowledge knows that syria is absolutely zero military threat to turkey and they have no motivation to attack the menthol and yet talking has already fallen victim to attacks from syria hasn't it so it does have a right to defend itself doesn't it well that the attacks turkey claimed or that the western media claim to have occurred against turkey were in fact mostly baiting
exercisers because the free syrian army and the sort of rebel mercenary groups running across the syrian border into turkey for refuge when they're being chased by the syrian security forces and so they're using it as a sort of safe haven and unfortunately there are people in you know in parts of the government turkey that are facilitating this compared to give us that does go we'll take you then really be vulnerable from the fallout of what could be a failed state. well it really all depends bill on what matter of strategy the west shoes right now option one has failed they tried to do a libyan style regime change. getting some foreign fighters and playing people then having no fly zone no fly zone is not going up in benghazi gate was a game changer is for american foreign policy goes because it's put a spotlight on what happened in libya and the last thing that washington or london
want to do is to have the public or the media for that matter cry further into what happened in libya because it's going to be seen exact carbon copy in operation in syria now assad is doing very well ordering off these mercenary armies but time will tell it's going to be a long drawn out conflict and let's go said that the deployment of these missiles near syria's border will only build tension in the region a jury agree with that and if so in what way could it do that. well what it is it's power posturing and it's sending a message to the government syria that nato is making plans whether they push the button or not is another matter but what i think that the western states can't go in on a legitimate basis to what the one of their second option is to gen up a chemical weapons situation and they've done that in the past on many continents with many invasions the other option that the west has is to drag the smaller
states into the conflict and use that as a justification for an airstrike by nato i'm talking about dragging in lebanon on perhaps israel to the cell that would give the justification to move in and claim it's a regional conflict that needs to be contained and if nato did move in with that then be the end because the u.n. says that more than sixty thousand people have been killed since this conflict started. if nato does move in will that be the end of all the deaths in the violence and we see some stability come to syria. no i believe of nato comes in it's going to be the beginning of the second stage of violence just look at libya bill what happened after this the so-called peace came to libya what you had is the sort of marauding factions there were many of them are going around killing cut off the supporters so expect the jihadi in syria to do the same they're going to exact
revenge right now i've got reports we've got reports out of. it like aleppo where the rebels or using this conflict as an excuse to steal property to steal business and they're running black markets across the country and there are people getting very wealthy off this conflict so it's a criminal gangsters paradise right now in syria and that's down to the mainly down to the the west and the gulf states support of the really violent guerrilla jihad is factions they're trying to exact ridged in change in the absence of a nato airstrike patrick thanks for your thoughts on this political analyst patrick henderson joining me live there from dubai. president mahmoud abbas has officially changed the name of the palestinian administration to the state of palestine but despite this and recent status upgrade by the u.n. the nation still remains all but united and saudis port of reports thousands of families are torn in two by israeli borders. this is the it was crossing one of
five land crossings between israel and gaza getting through here was tough you need the right permission and paper 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 distress 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 apart by israel's separation policy that makes it almost impossible to move between the west bank and gaza it was only after mohammed 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 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 what 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. but 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 it all to the west bank who 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 him and together face a bleak future policy r.t. israel gaza. live from moscow this is twenty four hours a day the french movie star is apparently a step closer to becoming a russian is in the black sea resort of sochi where he could find any receive his new policy. in the tax realm or not head for it and also. examine how a wave of political correctness is turn america into a hyper sensitive nation leaving many more prone to biting their tongue. wealthy british style.

a deeper trend of corruption. it's true that libya under gadhafi must have generated lots of dirty money with a system in place that poured cash into western countries look at this alleged contribution to sarkozy's campaign fifteen million euros for maximum presidential campaign expenditure allowed is twenty two million years fifty million that's more than double so this leftover money certainly didn't go towards a campaign but instead ended up in someone's pockets the tangible proof is needed and as of now there's only a statement by one man on trial who's trying to blame someone else to shift the attention away from himself which carries the legal weight of the world. coming your way later in the program online activists keep us society. i work for the government i don't appreciate people hacking us social justice is real thing and so that something has to be done if you like we have the means to do it then you should do it. resident asked people in new york with their feelings on

but the modern phenomenon of political correctness means one person's freedom of speech could be someone else's insult. how can it expression is turned into a touchy subject. 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 call them 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 u.s. 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. the commercial was created for a possible super bowl broadcast but after an uproar among catholics frito lay

conservatives want to want to sanitize or plain vanilla is history and art it's really about laziness we don't we don't want to trust people to look and examine to look at something. and then go beyond that said what does it mean what were those times like what is the author trying to say when film critic roger ebert took to twitter to criticize the censorship he was criticized for simply writing the n word a federal jury will soon decide if white people can use the n. word at work this as a white t.v. reporter is suing a fox news affiliate in philadelphia after being fired for using the n. word during a staff meeting white house chief of staff rahm emanuel has apologized he's apologized and of course the r word can also make you a glorified villain as was the case when former chief of staff rahm emanuel privately called a group of liberals retards rahm emanuel and i think he has some indecent and insensitive ways of being sarah palin is a great talk at e.s.p.n.
sensitivity surrounding sex has become a touchy subject announcer ron franklin was fired for allegedly calling a female reporter sweet baby menace a political correctness has neutered the american language creating a super sensitive society incapable of laughing things on a p.c. employee that blasts more people biting their tongues for fear that freedom of expression may be more trouble than it's worth for an important artsy new york. it's the news which will breathe fear into companies and governments worldwide the problem of hacking organization anonymous has vowed that in twenty thirteen it was things up more than ever before with a wave of fresh cyber attacks well to his very own residence in new york went to find out if the underground group still has the support of the people it claims to be fighting for.

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 unchecked 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 love them or hate them anonymous has promised to put on a good show for twenty thirteen just well. they have to wait to see if they live up to that promise.
