russia and iran the wall this is all see with me you know hello and welcome to the program and all of the right wing freedom policy has scooped up almost a crucial the voters sunday's general election if i cause a riot swinging trend seen in many european countries are reports now from vienna. already from sunday's ballot is that the far right freedom party in austria picked up almost a quarter of the vote now what that means is that they've really increased the amount of of their popularity here in the country they campaigned this time on a not just an immigration policy but also on a policy on a very much a euro skeptic campaign and that seen them draw in the voters from by the by the
sackful not just those though also the euro skeptic parties will be in the in the parliament here in austria and this is something that we're seeing not only here in austria but we've seen in norway where the government there came to power on m t well very strong immigration policy saying that they would put limits on immigration there in sweden week earlier this year we saw riots in the the be reachin of stockholm that seen a rise. in support for right wing governments in that country also denmark where the they have the right wing party they're the they're the the danish people's party all the third party people like marion le pen name france in the french national front they're making a lot of noise and they're getting more and more they're being heard more and more by people all across the continent and all of this is taken against the backdrop of the real extreme right being in the news right now in countries like greece where golden dawn members are being rounded up and arrested so there is there are two
sides to the the far right in europe at the moment it seems to be those that are getting elected politically and those that are are rioting in the street psyche and what we're seeing in athens and other cities in greece. and as peter reports the far right has been gaining ground in the e.u. and on agr all here you can see how the vote for such parties has changed since previous elections in european countries and that's now take a look at some of them in more detail so right wing populus have just secured a place in norway's ruling coalition winning seventeen percent of the vote the progress party is making coalition tools difficult as it's associated with the mass murder and brave weak who was a vocal supporter of the group now hungary's joe big party or the movement for a better hungry is known for its extreme nationalist views and labels itself as a ransom right away now golden dawn often referred to in the media as a neo nazi in the country's third largest political group and senior figures in the
party have recently been arrested following the killing of a left wing activist who was stomped to death by an alleged golden dawn member and in finland the true finns saw their popularity rise from fall to almost twenty percent before the twenty eleven election which made the largest opposition party in parliament a support for the group continued to grow after the vote as well and cold from the alternative can all make sense to milly's the anti euro sentiment has much to do with the popularity of the far right. well there trust the politicians in brussels any more they don't trust austrian the decision makers what they do there they don't believe they find the right solutions when after all it's just. a redistribution on a super national level it's austrian tax euros that go to other countries and are
just washed down the drain i think it just said a couple of politicians thinking and overlook their past solutions that after all it has only prolong the problems this is definitely what the people see and it has not come up 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. dozens of students have been shown by islamist medicines in nigeria who stormed a dormitory early on sunday morning and started killing people the gunmen are believed to be from the terrorist sect hieron that recently stepped up its time on civilians there and this latest incident showing the scale of tarrying golf in africa come shortly after the deadly shopping mall attack in kenya and i have chosen found all the viewpoint africa website explain to us why the continent has become a hub for terrorist cells. all these groups are all joined together. i'll shut
bob in somalia or the wider m.l.a. in in mali or. across west africa these jihadist cells are all on the beat group in time you're going to 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 of these groups they believe they can do no wrong because they think they believe they're getting their blueprint from god so to that extent it becomes very difficult to dislodge them over time you know but time i think it's a desperation acts by the militants have been attacked severely by the nigerian government for several months and i think they've been dented in terms of their own all round of rationing and this is just an extension of this group to make sure it's already propagated in the past before that it was a syrian states want sharia law and this fight has anything this western and it
does believe that some institutions including education institutions are its target because it's deemed to be watched. the group's attacks an educational institutions are imbedded in its name itself boko haram can be translated as western education is a sin and it is the islamists third at times on a school in nigeria as in northeastern state in four months and among other common targets for boko haram are christian communities and churches. the israeli prime minister is on a mission to flaunt iran's recent efforts to unfreeze its relations with the west and yahoo claims tehran's so weak talk is just a trick to buy the country's nuclear program more time and he's vowing to prove it in the white house and at the u.n. train all assembly aussie's middle east correspondent policia looks now at what to expect from the israeli leaders counter-offensive. 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 united nations general assembly netanyahu criticized that address 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 reigning 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. understand day the israeli internal security vision bit announced that it had a wasted a belgian citizen with a rainy an r 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 his position at 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 rouhani in his address last week also called for a new creek middle east it's highly unlikely that these radios 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 a notable israeli journalist to get in the navy told r.t. it will not be an easy task on italia ho to persuade the u.s. leader that iran cannot be trusted no matter what. practically the get is already long time ago because president obama and prime minister. c. hardly i who i. learned of the two main topics the palestinian question be they run me and my question. is any seeing which is less than bomb being iran is not the right solution he would come up with a lot of the village and material trying to prove that there is no change on the
ground in iraq he will try to spoil the party as you say but in any case i think that we have no to diplomacy give or hardly a chance. the reason basic fundamental change in iran and israel can only benefit out of the. step back in time when our website dot com for you to see how a year ago netanyahu drew the rolls of iran with his explosive address to the un general assembly. a court in bahrain sentence fifty share muslims to up to fifteen years in prison for organizing an opposition group it was once a key the key bank has all day a nationwide program for movement but authorities claim it's been involved in terrorism and we'll talk to dr high eve spent two months in prison that and she
believes the trial is a well used toxic of the government. it's quite all the propaganda the whole process all the demonization of the pro-democracy orders and to pro-democracy groups is quite an old fashioned thing that the death or it is the bahraini authorities may be using for a while and it's not working anymore i mean at this moment they feel absolutely failed to provide any evidence that these groups are involved in any to terror attacks or any. of its movements two years ago exactly at the same the same judge he a convicted doctor has almost fifty doctors for sentencing up to fifteen years it's the same thing that a beating. then arrested in bahrain has been ongoing for more than two years let's now take a look at the struggle in more detail since the beginning of the an uprising around

a luxury for europeans growing fuel prices along with the general recession are forcing more and more to say farewell to their four willed friends but with public transport being expensive and clouded people are choosing pedal power as the worst myth report. 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 wheels for to be fighting the system really on their you know just the cars on the road. and you just. can guarantee that i'm always there on time. just outside chance i've heard

one point three million more new bikes the new cars it's a drive the government actively supports creating these cycling super highways and 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 over ten years and sees a correlation between recession and writing we've seen a big rise in cycling since the start of the recession. to further start before that but it's one of the it's one of many factors that's definitely propelling cycling up which part is that we have a massive increase in number of people cycling got boy who has travelled on the main roads doubled in london 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

recently the ministry of internal affairs of russia declared that they're going to dress to increase operations in and around the moscow subway system with a major emphasis on illegal immigration there's an odd paradox when people talk about dealing with illegal immigration in terms of what the police should do people want the police to deal with it but any means of trying to actually do anything or generally taboo any form of asking people to see ideas viewed as an invasion of privacy or racial profiling well i don't know how exactly anyone can prove they are or aren't a citizen without id and if you're looking for people who are foreign and thus different then how can you go about looking for illegals without looking for people who are different i.e. profiling if you were looking for
a criminal of slavic origin in uganda when the police be wrong to stop me do the standing out from the crowd i don't think so that's not racial profiling it is just common sense obviously it is best to fight the causes of illegal immigration rather than asking for id in moscow subways but they have to do something so i guess id checks are here to stay but there's a big difference between looking at someone's passport and doing stop and frisk or involuntary blood and urine tests that is what immigration control goes over the line but that's just my opinion. told you my language as well but i will only react to situations i have read the reports for. the new i will leave that to the states to comment on your letter. to secure yes because it's on the dock you know. a few more weeks of. what you need to direct question the press for
