good morning to you on a monday live from moscow with me rory sushi welcome to the week's opening program . the israeli prime minister is on a mission to thwart iran's recent efforts to unfreeze its relations with the west. who claims that iran's sweet talk is just a trick in order to try and buy the country's nuclear program more time he's also vowing to prove it in the white house and at the u.n. general assembly middle east correspondent she takes a look at what to expect from the israeli leader counter offensive. the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu is in the united states where he will be meeting with the american president barack obama and also addressing the united nations general assembly the focus of that address and his meetings will be on iran and here the israeli prime minister's message is quite simple don't trust the rain ians
netanyahu has ordered his government members not to give comments regarding the recent phone call between the radian and american presidents in fact he's ordered them not to talk at all regarding the whole issue of iran and this is presumably to avoid any kind of embarrassment while natanya who is in the united states and also for israel to seemingly present a united front prior to leaving israel for new york netanyahu said that he was going to use this opportunity at the united nations to show the truth about to rant particularly now while all these plays and trees are being said last week when the iranian president rouhani addressed the u.n. security council who criticized that addressed severely saying that was full of hypocrisy and cynicism at the time he ordered the israeli delegation to boycott the station and warned the international community not to be fooled by signs of so-called moderation by the way in government we will not be fooled by half
measures that merely provide a smokescreen for your rants continual pursuit of nuclear weapons. and the world should not be fooled either. understanding a the israeli internal security vision bit announced that it had wasted a belgian citizen with a rainy an our region for allegedly spying against israel now the incident happened already three weeks ago but the information has only now been released while netanyahu is in the united states and of course questions are being asked about its timing many are suggesting that it is to store up ammunition for netanyahu is position a position that he's going to be putting across in the united states it also kinds at a time when the first time in decades we see a warming in the relationship between the united states and iran now when hardly in his address last week also called for a nuclear free middle east it's highly unlikely that the israelis will ever agree to this israel has never admitted having nuclear weapons but at the same time it
has never denied that it does policy r.t. tel aviv and in the meantime a notable israeli journalist out of gideon levy who told r.t. it will not be an easy task for netanyahu to persuade the u.s. leader that iran cannot be trusted no matter what. practically they get peace already a long time ago because president obama and prime ministers. see hardly i who i in the main topics a palestinian question be the day rally in question in ateneo sizes any seeing which is less than bomb being iran is not the right solution he would come up with a lot of intelligence material trying to prove that there is no change on the ground in iran he would try to spoil the party as is say but in any case i think that we have no two. diplomacy a chance and give rouhani
a chance. the reason basic fundamental change in iran and he soon can only benefit out of feet. you can go to our website all to you dot com for a little trip back in time you can check out what netanyahu said to the un general assembly that was just a year ago or so how is illustrative address stokes tensions all across iran. are we coming to you live from moscow as are dozens of students have been shot dead by islamist militants in nigeria who stormed a dormitory early on sunday and started killing people some in their sleep at the gunman are believed to be from the terrorist sect boko haram recently stepped up its attacks on civilians and this latest incident showing the scale of terror and gulf in africa come shortly after the deadly shopping mall attack in kenya io johnson the founder of the viewpoint africa website explained why the continent has become a hub for terrorist cells. all these groups are all joined together but i'll
shut babin somalia or the wider m.l.a. in in mali or the. across west africa these jihadist cells are all only blueprints on the organizational the west has already declared terrorism leads to islam is in islam is in leads to fundamentalism and ultimately muslims when you're dealing with an ideology when you're dealing with a mindset and in the case all these groups they believe they can do no wrong because i think they believe they're getting their group from god so to that extent it becomes very difficult to dislodge them all the time you're looking at the generational problem alternately the the use would be the ones who would be that the educated better be mindful of what can go wrong when they join these groups and ultimately when you start addressing the right from course it's creating jobs addressing social issues ultimately we may be able to read these problems from our
societies let's give you a bit of a background here to the terror group that did a massacre of the students in nigeria in the name of ram it can actually be translated as quote western education is a sin and is known for attacking educational institutions it is the islamists third attack on a school in nigeria's northeastern state in just four months among other common targets for book a. christian communities and churches. now according bahrain has sentenced fifty muslims to up to fifteen years in prison for organizing an opposition group it was one of the key backers of the nationwide pro-reform movement but authorities claim it's been involved in terrorism we talked to dr not far from the buck range of rehabilitation and antiviolence organization and she herself spent two months in prison there she believes the whole trial is a well known top level tactic of demonization. actually it's
a quite old propaganda the whole process all the demonization of the pro-democracy corners and to pro-democracy groups is a quite an old fashioned thing that the death or if is the bahamian authorities big be using for a while and it's not working anymore i mean at this moment they failed absolutely failed to provide any evidence that these groups are involved in any to terror attacks or any more of it take movements two years ago exactly at the same date same judge he a convicted doctor has almost fifty doctors for sentencing up to fifteen years it's the same thing the repeating. it's good to have you with us here and still to come for you off to a very short break at the perilous state of the portuguese economy is actually bringing people together for almost small communes forming in rural areas people
sympathize with the uprising but we do not try and we do not smug. but. we do not do any old these things. but i will only react to situations i have read the reports. and know i will leave them to the state department to comment on your. security as i'm not talking . thank you no more weasel words when you have a direct question be prepared for a chase when you run should be ready for
a pleasure to have you with us here today i'm sure. live from moscow it's our teeth thanks for joining us this morning europe is now witnessing a surge in support for far right parties a right wing populist who have swept to power in norway a greece's golden dawn is the country's third largest political group and in austria the right wing freedom party has scooped up almost a quarter of the entire vote in sunday's general election peter all of our looks are what's behind this rise of the right. what is most interesting about these elections is that over one quarter of austrians have voted for parties that want to
do away with bailouts for euro zone countries and see in see real changes to the structure of the single currency now to talk a bit more about this and what it means i'm joined by barbara cole who's the director of the austrian economic sense a baba thanks very much for talking to me why have austrians voted in this way and why are they upset with the current two eurozone system while they entrust the politicians in brussels any more they don't trust our austrian the decision makers what they do there they don't believe they find the right solutions i mean after all it's just. a redistribution on a supranational level it's austrian tax euros that go to other countries and are just washed down the drain now austria is one of the four eurozone economies this century underpins bailouts what would this vote over a quarter as they say people voting for parties that want to change things what does this mean for the future of the single currency well i think it does set a couple of politicians thinking and overlook their past solutions that after all
it has only prolonged the problems this is definitely what the people see and it has not come to any solutions as a matter of fact that that's grew bigger and bigger and higher so the next generations will suffer and this is what those twenty five percent obviously have in mind so austrians voting in increasing numbers the parties they want changes to the eurozone and also voting for right wing party something that we have seen spreading across europe as my report shows. the political right is on the right. and it's drawing some surprising support a lot of people from the working class blue collar workers lower educated people are voting for the extreme right of the radical right because of the policies still put forward like immigration and european integration. i guess the political system is such so these are the topics that are now days important for those people voting for the radical right across europe there's
a time that's turning right ukip is being talked about as the legitimate third party in britain while alternative for germany just missed out on a place in the bundestag norway's conservative government came to power with tough immigration promises and in sweden and finland there's also been gains here in australia euro skeptic right wing parties gaining support from people who feel that the main issues important to them ons being addressed it they might care less and we should all feel the need to slow down immigration i have nothing against foreign us but enough is enough. yeah e.u. is saying where the money should go to like an all kind poor country is on its of their own country and the e.u. is too wouldn't be like. dictate everything. else it used to be their own parties interest spruced and the e.u.
second us now it's only a few do them a lot and. the freedom party of austria had made significant gains its critics call it xenophobia its leader thanks to differ being true i don't hate foreigners. even so the party adopted a different campaign tactic than it had done in previous elections their issue hidden message about religious values and a sense of talking about love your neighbors which is a very catholic way of talking about issues but of course the hidden message behind was that this is against islam or against muslims also flying the anti you roofline is a stroke canadian billionaire frank stronger who come dems the single currency is the road to rack and ruin. we need to stop creating every high. she spends more money than. most of europe's recent elections of the nail
biters for politicians desperate to keep their jobs of being economies is different it's doing relatively fine what's happening here is brussels assistance with bailouts and encroachments own sovereignty is given the right. to beat them with peace. and over the web site for you right now the path of the olympic flame. is make their way by plane and. bring the torch to. right now we've got the footage from the lighting ceremony and . whereabouts of the iconic symbol of the games. the website right now you can find out about the newest unit in the british army that staffed by the i t designed to defend the country from the threat of cyber warfare and so much more right now on the web site.
or to just a moment on the day but for now in the program here voters have rejected austerity and local elections in portugal handing defeat to the parties of the coalition government spending cuts have proven immensely unpopular in the country which is likely to see a third consecutive year of recession and hit by tax hikes and job cuts people are finding unexpected ways to survive the economic storm this story now to watts. alan taiji a sparse beautiful part of portugal and one of the country's poorest regions the rural communities here are used to people moving out economic flights having been
a reality here for many generations but since the crisis hit villages like hamill reyes have seen people needing in here a small communes formed that. anna and her two children have been here for a year her story is one that will be familiar with many families not just in portugal but all across europe i lost. the money that. it's not enough to buy my bills and evil to pay the mortgage on her house and sought help from a charity called gaia they put her in touch with this small commune he found her free accommodation in return for working on the house. turning the table trying another way around seven families are part of this group and all
members of the commune chip in. and brick by brick and her family of building a new life here we're told the community here is based on a mix of free enterprise solar darity communal sharing and co-operative trade of a move from the city to here a couple of years ago or. so we are still like trying to find our place here we have well we have this little jobs of course it's very. it's not something that you have a strong link to a source of income you are like. throwing you trying to. get by going your own fit in living off the land might seem but that's the thing about this situation is that many of the people who have come here like can are ordinary people he hated the extraordinary difficulties the euro crisis the
presented them with so alternative ways of getting by and much like the euro crisis itself but showing signs of slow recovery the big question is is this sustainable it's clear this is no easy existence money's tight and children have to travel thirty kilometers each day to get to school the nearest hospital one hundred kilometers away remote regions like this have been hard hit by cuts to public services. like this. surviving not leaving yet and when i ask if she misses her old life and her job as a lighting technician in the theater yes because when i have the opportunity to make something near to my. work. i feel that i can do it. well and i feel
really think it. should be treated for me. that this thing. works like this the people who. don't have. to do the things that they must they like more. some of oxy put she goes out and takes you region. ok world update time here on the program let's get some other global headlines for you and for you straight to ethiopia we go thousands of taking to the streets in the capital all in a massive anti government rally the protesters demanded reforms of the release of political prisoners and the scrapping of the country's and terrorist little demonstrators claim the registration is being misused for cracking down on opposition activists and journalists but officials say the protesters are just trying to glorify convicted terrorists. and thousands of their style and have
gathered for a funeral service for the dozens killed in a devastating blast in this city are sure while the mourners were joined by the relatives of a family who lost sixteen of its members in the attack they died when a car bomb went off near a police station in a historic market destroying nearby shops and buildings it's only a week since suicide bombers killed eighty people just outside a christian church in the same city. have a look here dramatic footage coming from london showing people jumping from a tourist boat there right in the river thames the vessel called fire all twenty eight passengers and crew members had to be rescued by passing ships and no one was seriously injured but a mother and her child have been bought a hospital due to suspected smoke inhalation still there we don't know what caused that fire. now cars are becoming increasingly a luxury for europeans growing petrol prices along with the general recession
forcing more and more people to say farewell to their four wheeled friends with public transport being expensive and crowded people are choosing pedal power as laura smith reports. to some it's a trend to others it's a hopi and to many more it's just a way of getting around with public transport at breaking point roads cloaked and finances tight london's commuters are increasingly ditching food wheels for two. sister millionaire you know just all the cars on the road. and huge saving to guarantee that i'm always there on time. just outside work since i've heard you say yes it's much easier for you in chocolate doesn't even own a car and he's found a way of capitalizing on london his passion for cycling he's open to cuff

some of london's busiest roads and even offering a forty five cent tax break i'm buying a new bicycle. london's mayor has also appointed a dedicated cycling commissioner andrew gilligan has a budget of nearly a billion pounds say the ten years and sees a correlation between recession and writing we've seen a big rise in cycling since the start of the recession. it's to be fair though it started before that there but it's one of them it's one of many factors that's definitely propelling cycling up which days that we have a massive increase in number of people cycling go up by almost tripled on the main roads doubled advantage as a whole since two thousand and two and a quarter of the traffic in central london in the morning rush hour is now boys we just have to cater for the number of people today we have the millions all over europe struggling to combat rising fuel prices and increasingly pricey and crowded
