a foreign country when they attack the iranian nuclear facilities and similar attacks against the u.s. would be seen as an act of war by the pentagon's own definition there's a certain game of words going on here when it's against the u.s. it's called a cyber attack when it's the u.s. doing it it's called installing software but there would be no cyber race without spice and the latest development here is that the chinese have reportedly hacked into the pentagon's most sophisticated weapons systems a leaked confidential report by the defense science board intended for pentagon leaders says two dozen system designs were compromised those systems are said to be critical to u.s. missile defense and aircraft you. officials point to trying them u.s. news outlets run articles with headlines like this one china is winning the cyber war because they hacked u.s. plans for real war china traditionally denies the accusations of cyber espionage but if the accusation is true if one still has to ask the u.s.

the idea of a metric grids in the united states or extremely sensitive defense and intelligence secrets and they have been vulnerable to cyber attacks whether it comes from a government whether it comes from a very skilled individual hacker there was the case just last year struck four in the united states which was a private company which was hacked by a teenager who managed to get through a firewalls and basically. make his point clear he was subsequently discovered of course but it can be done by an individual imagine what could be done on the part of governments there are so many things that happen every day that we hear nothing about to the u.k. now where one of the alleged machete killers who had to british soldier to death on the london streets has been officially charged with murder michael adebowale will appear in court later on thursday the gruesome killing has added to the anti muslim

and to immigrant sentiments in the country and i thought jeez that now increasingly under fire for downplaying the race and religion factor in crimes than a tourist oxford sex out grooming ring case being one of the most recent examples are teens a part of boyko explains. across the country many have been shocked at the uncovered sexual exploitation rings first in rochdale then brother and darby and most recently in oxford gangs of men vulnerable young girls some as young as ten with presence in order to gain their trust then they force them to take drugs rape them and finally they sell them off into prostitution they reported gangs are made up of muslim men victims young white girls says the government choosing to ignore obvious marcuse when it comes to these horrific crimes race and religion to talk about the issue i'm joined by sean thomas he's a writer in genesis one you've written about the case in oxford is there an elephant in the room is the government choosing to shy away from making
12:10 am
a connection between these men's religion and their white victims i think unquestionably yes in the past there is some evidence that these crimes have been going on since the early one nine hundred ninety s. if not before. additionally a labor m.p. and crier raised the issue maybe ten or fifteen years ago and of course in a tourist leave the head of the british national party a far right politician raised it in one thousand in two thousand and one and in two thousand and four i want it was right in two thousand and four it was a subject of a secret b.b.c. documentary and the reaction of the of the political and legal establishment to to nick griffin enough for a politician raising the issue was to try and silence him not to investigate the crimes that he regarded as being an ethnocentric if not racist politician but but they did but they ignored everything he said and instead tried to silence his point of view and so the crimes went on for another five or six years at least before they originally were they became finally revealed in the last two to three years
12:11 am
you've also mentioned in your writing that it was a muslim prosecutor driving the sentencing in the oxford case do you think anybody who is known muslim feared being branded a racist if they look too closely at the case the fact that it took a muslim prosecutor in the northwest of even to funding cut through the woods. yes there was a problem it showed that that what prosecutors what social workers what legal offices and what politicians were very wary of addressing the issue because they are all terrified of being associated with the b.n.p. with the far right of being seen as racist it could it can ruin careers if you get that label and yet the government hasn't taken this up as an issue you think it's too dangerous a can of worms to open yes completely and in fact to be fair to the government the police forces they are now in fact tackling this crime pretty damn seriously i was reading a report where they were said there were no fifty four ongoing investigations into desegregation grooming gangs around the u.k. . that is an astonishing figure that's fifty four gangs each of these gangs may have dozens or even hundreds of victims so we are talking about possibly. girls
12:12 am
who've been abused raped and some even possibly murdered in the last twenty years because this crime was ignored i mean it is very shocking we have to accept that yes white people can also be victims of racial crimes and i'd say these girls were such victims and thomas many thanks for your comments there you have it the muslim council of britain is going to dedicate their next meeting to talking about how they can stamp out such cases of abuse but we're yet to hear anything from the government on the issue. r.c. london we've also talked to. a mom of the also the islamic gratian who says the current situation is probably hurting muslims in the u.k. themselves. really it's a very fraught time very tense time and i think you know we muslims have actually given the gun and given the bullet to groups like the b.n.p. in each of these a father a fascist group and tell them shoot us but we provide them with the ammunition by
12:13 am
bag engaging in mindless target in terrorism and then also by targeting white girls that simply doesn't in india us to the majority population so muslims have to take some responsibility but we also have to admit that they ice time of folks out there will take advantage of the of the situation multiculturalism has failed in this society and what does multiculturalism do it keeps communities apart in a bubble so they didn't actually mix the state apart from from each other and what we need is an integrated society and the cultural rather than a multicultural society where is culture mixes with others at the moment we have places like luton or leeds or leicester whatever with the action in muslim ghetto people living in front of apartheid like residential neighborhoods never meeting other people and i think this is only reinforces in the reentering just this dichotomy between them and us well the ringing him all opinions on this very controversial story throughout the day online and on air but while opinions vary

12:15 am
of her adult life she's seen first hand the cultural shift and is now looking to meet house she fills the area she lives in it's lost all sense of community all people i knew when i moved in here have gone they've all moved away. now mostly flats with very transitory population but perhaps surprisingly it seems many of the older generation of migrants who live around here and it settles and builds up businesses agree that integration is not working as well as that maybe should be ethnic cultural diversity in london that's part of what makes london the it so why do you think this thing a little too close to the problems the right to go to zero has its foreign people as more or less these european people they just interested to do a short journey make their money and then run off their country and there's no investment in very very return to their country there's nothing to rebuild the country is only for themselves to make money and that's you know that's what i
12:16 am
first of all i mean i've been to this country when i was like twenty three years old now i'm forty three years old so i'm investing business i'm doing so many things in this country it's very unfair. going to the contrary. that's the way it has to go in london white brits now make up just forty five percent of the capital's total population in some boroughs the shift has been dramatic in two thousand and one and more than eighty percent of people in barking and dagenham in the east of london white british decade on and they're in the minority just forty nine percent were here at one of london's busiest train stations and the working week commute so hard over the course of a decade in london stories white british population for a moment six hundred thousand people lost in the commuter towns on the outskirts and the population has become more ethnically mixed so you know the white points are leaving london behind the question is why i want to take to family it's having
12:17 am
on the local communities they've left behind well there's a certain amount of diversity which is very nice in any city. but when the diversity become so extreme that you have. balkanized groups but no actual. traditional communities or the traditional communities around number of completely new comers or the newcomers keep rolling in it has a very alienating effect what's been seen across the cape for a long time has been most acute in london but the figures aren't the full story avoiding ethnic communities does play a role in so-called white flight but evidence shows that race may not be the main driver other important factors such as class an economic status a key to the migration and ignoring the would misinterpret people's complexity when it comes to reasons they're leaving london i think the main thing about that white flight reminds us of is that there is a problem the mistake it makes that says that problem is just about ethnicity it's
12:18 am
not it's about age and it's about mixing between people of different incomes and we need to address all these things together there are now concerns britain could see it's another immigration surgeon. the end of this year when some twenty one million romanians and seven million both guerin's free to travel and work across the e.u. only a fraction of those a full cost to actually come here the previous immigration under-estimates coupled with white british relocation changing the face of london's ethnic makeup without much understanding what the full ramifications of that might be. some of us see. that ahead for you this dreadful price of. growing unemployment along with ever more expensive medical services infant mortality rate in belgium.

12:22 am
figures now this is in addition to a recent o.e.c.d. report which looks at countries with increasing the child poverty and belgium is among them and we also spoke to doctors who says that the problem here of infant mortality has to do with a lot of access to medical services people without papers. or fused into medical services because they have not the right papers it takes a lot of time to have these papers to have access and so on was part of a lot of pressure on the doctors and on the administration in general to not accept people who. prove to take on pain in light of increasing unemployment and talk of the so-called a lost generation of young people without jobs be increasing wealth gap among citizens this is yet another problematic aspect of the social fabric of europe that the leaders will have to find a solution to reporting from brussels i'm tess are cilia. a thirty by censuring it's no mercy to business and think they have better all up their sleeves to get
