other things but my personal feeling is that in all those uprisings there was not a single leader around home people could rally but over here they have in the shape of a llama the whole cadre but there have been actually two or three different theories about the background of this man some say that because of his canadian nationality and because of his longer stay in the west he may have been one motivated as well as funded by the west there is another theory but he may be a stooge of the military the fact is that whoever has launched this particular person has done his homework because the man has captured the spirit and imagination of a people who had the feeling that they were down drugged and they were neglected and they were driven against of all because of bad governance because of the peril of situation because of lack of energy lack of food and lack of jobs people are

8:15 am
think he's being radical enough polls there are reports why many of netanyahu is right wing allies are changing their minds. he's the surprise success story of campaign one twin millionaire who says a palestinian state would be suicide for israel naftali bennett used to work for prime minister netanyahu but now he's working at taking supporters away from him like this man who used to be a diehard supporter of netanyahu so he could party until these elections rolled around the likud is. a bus full of right wing members of knesset with a lift wing person driving the bus. as far as being i mean. even though i am opposed to it. i would say most members of the likud obviously when a minute is for it the irony is that while the world sees netanyahu as a right wing leader at home he's losing face among supporters for not being focused
8:16 am
enough this is part of the right wing campaign he's up against there are some things we all know will never happen the sopranos will never return for another season. the marker on our pro and a peace agreement with the palestinians will not happen promises like this have been a jewish home party in food position it's poised to take more than twelve percent of parliamentary seats analysts say netanyahu while still expected to serve another term is running scared he's up his rhetoric i say in the most clear of terms the western wall is not occupied territory i don't care what the un says we will build in jerusalem because it's our right not on your hands we could list has grown even more right wing with radicals like this woman high up in the pecking order. but the likud retain a party is a party with values the state of israel is a state of the jews whose eternal capital.
8:17 am
but what will be the implications of such rhetoric after the elections many israelis are asking themselves about the day after will netanyahu become more rightwing and risk drawing israel into conflicts with its neighbors or will he back down and risk losing face among his supporters. is hoping for the latter that netanyahu will listen to world opinion and reach a compromise with the palestinians he knows all too well what the current cycle of violence can bring speakers daughter was killed in a suicide bombing seventeen years ago. that we don't have unfortunately in the center and the left. a leader who is significantly charismatic to lead this country and give its people hope the left is also divided but i do think who will find a way to compromise because of world pressure but that compromise won't come easy enough to be bennett's solution to the israeli palestinian conflict is to annex most of the west bank while allowing palestinians limited so few in the richest and
8:18 am
while that might not seem a possible idea to most of the international community it's exactly what his constituency wants to hear a fact in a time yahoo is acutely aware of policy r.t. television. well the election campaign in israel is drawing to an end if israelis were to cast their votes today this is what the knesset would look like probably that's according to polls if we first look at netanyahu his party of the coup party which is the front runner there projected to get about thirty four seats seventeen seats have been predicted for the labor party that's the far and the far right jewish home run by israel's rising political star and netanyahu his former ally enough tiredly bennett he's surged into third place and he's likely to spend thirteen seats in the parliament that's about as opposed to a former three seats that he had so they are expecting to gain of course this could all change by tuesday r.t. will be closely following this election on the twenty second of january giving you

in-depth coverage. how will change with to run develop we'll settle it expands just isolate can there be peace with gaza what's next in relations with america will netanyahu survive his snuff election on january twenty second. israel decides on arts or. it's nineteen minutes past the hour still to come in the program lucky to be alive a man five after falling out of a moving train half naked in the middle of a freezing siberian far as you can find out more in just a couple of minutes. in other news british prime minister david cameron this week again postponed a crystal's crucial speech on his country's future relations with the european union but extracts from that speech were released and they gave a little away other than that the pm believes the e.u. must address certain key challenges the media otherwise the union will fail and
8:20 am
britain could drift towards an exit robert oulds a british conservative party politician and director of the bruce group says david cameron can no longer delay voicing a clear opinion on a long standing issue does he think his home he needs to set a clear course of what he's going to be doing regarding the european you have a clear distinctive workable policy to fail to do that just keeps the speculation going and keeps the infighting in the conservative party continuing so really he needs to get a grip on this policy as soon as possible and perhaps not trying to lie having a referendum until some time after the next general election that's even if yes prime minister but hold it before that would be the best way to end the uncertainty and so we know exactly where we are going britain pays billions each year to the european union we have enormous costs put on the british economy as a result of excessive e.u. regulation and e.u.
8:21 am
policies they just don't work for this country it's more of a hindrance than it is a help to the british economy and of course it undermines our own democracy and the option is quite simply to either stay in the european union as it is which doesn't work for many different people or of course leave the european union and negotiate a. basis of a relationship that's purely built around trade and the sooner david cameron delivers the wishes of the british people and the town's power or exits the european union the better. mine right now for you conference with the ball gary and political leader jeep after an assassination and i should say storms the stage soon overpowered the whole thing caught on video you can see it here and also out of our car. and sandstorm russians come on tried to dominate the podium the twenty thirteen dakar rally for details on that story and much more head to our team.
8:22 am
and we've got quite a story for you catching up the train took a bizarre twist in the road in rural russia this week a matter survived after falling out of a carriage barely dressed for a night in a freezing siberian faras in winter now to manage to tell us how on earth this happened and how he's doing is tom barton thanks for being with us tom what happened this occurrence of amazing to say well forty two year old valarie melk of who here is a long haul lorry driver was one of the passengers on this train pretty clocking its way through the forest in russia's far east during the noise because for a cigarette he goes to the vestibule at the end of the carriage smokes his cigarette and then he goes to come back to his cabin and while the train is core is nice yes speeding along through the through the forest and he opens the wrong door
8:23 am
he ses and rather than going back to the part of the carriage he falls out of the back of the train onto the tracks and into the forest at night and the train speeding away into the distance he then begins to run but he rapidly realizes he's not just running to try and catch the train he's running for his very life because it's about minus forty out there he's wearing slippers some jogging bottoms and a t. shirt that he'd been wearing in the train and he's now running to try and catch the train which he fails to do and then he's just running hoping that something is going to come down. further down the line and he's lucky just from pillar of luck there is a station several kilometers away he gets there they give him some tea and he's all ok however he seems to be a little bit embarrassed about this whole episode he tried that he looks like a very tough guy he looks at the deficit in a lot of the cold respects however how tough you are but he tried not to tell anyone and eventually his wife found out through from journalists we managed to get hold of ourselves earlier here's what he had to say
8:24 am
when i fell out i only had parents slippers and t. shirt i ran for seven kilometers i didn't curse money tap and i just saw the train was gone so i came quickly to my senses and started running so that i didn't freeze i ran on the railway track for about twenty or thirty minutes when i go to the nearest station their eyes popped out after they saw a man with almost no clothes on women there quickly gave me tea and reported what just happened i didn't tell this to anybody my wife found out about the incident only after journalists called her. so i would imagine that he got a rather difficult phone call from his wife have to see found that he had been in the situation and trying to keep it secret from i was going to favor any fall out at home because the earth's any kind of frostbite or damaged housing holding out i think he's ok he's back at work all right he didn't nice to keep it secret everyone
8:25 am
knows about as little mistake never mind valarie but there is there will be an investigation into perhaps one of the train guards had left the door at the end of the train unlocked which was a bit of an oversight apart from that's all ok we have covered a story recently your cooter is having a big problem. in the far east of a big problem lately with lots of wolves there so perhaps another motivation for him to run rather fast to try and get back to that train so lots of lessons in the story one of them make sure you look before you step after opening a door in a russian train i remember that thanks a lot for that. ok well beijing has slammed washington for its latest comments on china's territorial brawl with jets head in the south china sea the chinese foreign ministry says the u.s. should be more careful with its words and stay away from the region's matters it's a reaction to statements made by u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton who reassured tokyo of american support and
