international news and commons live from moscow this is with me thanks for joining us the israeli prime minister is in the u.s. and he says to tell the truth in the face all the sweet talk and also a lot of smiles which is how he described the iranian leaders recent speech of the yuan then you may netanyahu is concerned about the consequences well historic phone call between house on reality and barack obama on his middle east correspondent explains why. 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 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 full arguer. on sunday the israeli internal security vission bit announced that it had of 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 comes 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 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 our team tel aviv. and her discussed prime minister netanyahu his trip with tehran based professor said one hundred morandi and he said that these rating leader will have no difficulty defending his conduct of stance but the u.s. should be very cautious about its next move towards iran. netanyahu his obsession with iran is. quite deep and his when president rouhani was initially elected he called the iranian president wolf in sheep's clothes so that sort of language is what is to be expected from israeli prime minister i don't think it's going to be very difficult for him to persuade some people because in the united states the corporate media is very much in the hands of the political establishment in congress and the senate is very close to. the regime but i think if american political leaders take
note of what happened during the syria issue and how opposed the american people are now to confrontation in military attacks. then they will choose a more reasonable approach when it comes to iran because after all they couldn't convince their own people about syria iran is a much much stronger country and on the other hand the americans have isolated themselves internationally over syria. and you can stand back in time on our website as he dot com to see how a year ago i need to get iran with his explosive address to the u.n. chain assembly. and i had sharon scoreless turned into a bloodbath by some of africa's most radical islamic coming out were foretold the terrorists within the continent and discuss how these networks interlinks globally . already had
also a trade bunch and sovereignty now europe and britain disagree on how free people are to live their lives the u.k.'s prime minister has hinted the country may pull out of the european convention on human rights saying it's simply a terrorist tricks have instead they piano says britain may make a list of its own probably stricter standards and gerard barton and they pay for the united kingdom independence party says it's a long of a chain we now come under the jurisdiction of the european court of human rights which is the response constable for many decisions that the british people are very unhappy with like our inability to get or soren terrorist suspects for example and going said that we have to give prisoners the vote i've said that we cannot have life sentences for criminals they must be reviewed so our worst and most approach killers will not have the rights to have their last sentences reviewed we have our own courts which have been established over the last eight hundred years we have
our supreme court with a british citizen has a problem with the british government and the british state we have our own courts where i can seek redress if we shouldn't have to take it off to a foreign court presided over by shoreham judges many of whom oxen simply not up to the standard of english judge instructions will either observe civilised values or they were many countries and i'm not quite up to that standard yet and all this is done for us as actually we've had all these kind of sit ins that we're obliged to. the central coalition loops to house crowd back into power in sunday's parliamentary election last year but over right wing party has had a field day scooping up a quarter of the overall vote and us these are all of the reports from yet it's part of a strong movement towards the right that is sweeping you are. well it looks likely that the coalition of the social democrats and the people's party will continue to rule here in austria however the most interesting thing to come out of sunday's
vote was the rise in popularity of the far right freedom party they come paying the saying that they wanted to see an end to bailouts of failing economies in europe using austrian taxpayers' money also they wanted to see a restructuring or even a and a but getting rid of the the single currency all of those things appealing to the the austrian voter right now but it's just worn the old right wing parties across europe that have been gaining popularity now across the european union we've seen in norway a right wing government there coming to power based on immigration promises promises to cap immigration in the country also in sweden the rise in the right wing we saw just earlier this year riots in the speed region of stockholm they were based on their own immigration mostly we've seen politicians there campaigning hard on all the anti immigration stand point also in hungary we've seen the the rise of
right wing parties what we are seeing is an increase in the right wing parties in countries in europe becoming the legitimate third party pushing the the established political status quo all of these though showing that across europe as the eurozone crisis doesn't seem to be going away any where traditionally the working classes who perhaps would have voted to the left or the center left and now turning towards the right. and barbara cohn from the austrian economics center believes people are sick of their hard earned heroes being wasted outside the country. well they don't trust the politicians in brussels anymore they don't trust our 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 supranational level it's austrian tax euros that go to other countries and are
just washed down the drain i think it does set 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. and coming up later this hour united in hardship financially hate portuguese go in central a means to survive moving to rule areas and forming communities to help each other deal with the economic fallout. a bloodbath at a college in nigeria so up to fifty people executed during the night with gunmen walking door to door. students or run for their lives is believed to be their work of book iran in nigeria's dominant is a mystery so the group has increasingly been targeting schools and is believed to
have killed off was of asian people last week alone maureen raouf an african conflicts analyst who's worked with the un says the way will attacks on the continent can be traced back to saudi arabia. i think we haven't terkel the central or the terrorism central which is derived from saudi arabia the ideology of the logistics are all coming out of saudi arabia and the world wakes up to the fact that we have to go and turkle this at the root of the problem then we'll see an increase of the turks across africa like we've seen recently in. nigeria there are different groups there probably don't cooperate within africa but they are being supplied logistically in terms of training and fighting known survived by a central group in saudi arabia including members of the monarchy i might add. and with this a time vocal how iran has again lived up to its name the literal translation is
western education is sin but the militants haven't shied away from killing islamic schools scholars and not to radical enough for their liking are that thousands have died in the group's attacks since two thousand and nine when it launched an insurgency across northeastern nigeria. because activists in bahrain sounds as donahoe of except as noted the state's coming out which has to say they were worse than a fool should in confinement and all the government want is to break the opposition struggle. and bring peace process that a russian oil rig in the arctic is a real threat to walk is on their equipment with the latest on the legal battle coming up shortly. this point be an expensive car soon.
to be in the. this is also a welcome back chair is a sentence by bahraini court on sunday have accused the government of basing while supporting and electric a saying that but they also say they are all part of an illegal opposition group linked to terrorists twenty two of the fifty people put behind bars were tried in absentia while those present plan to appeal and sayyid a use of. head over morning training at bahrain center for human rights told us here the background discovered about police tactics we are as a human rights group we are reporting on a daily basis is there. a mass civilian from security forces and a bigger house on a daily basis broking the doors that need to get people inside their homes
sometimes stealing money and also what's happening on the ground on their protest. and police kidnapping the group is still beating the doors getting them in the city go to. torture center three and seven down your door killing them in this building waterfalls going fishing all those people who want to be kidnapped by a great. video they are subjected to unfold this is not allowed to do they are not enough to talking to their family or her ex's lawyer for maybe a symptom from the few i want us to tell you what do we nobody knows about. while the movement has been alive in bahrain for more than two years now let's have a look at how it's been fair. over that time almost one hundred people have been killed in violence and three thousand arrested the first major anti-government protests started back in february twentieth leben on the wave of the arab spring
uprisings before she's chose to break it out with fools apparently the rest was so behind the rulers had to call saudi arabia and the united arab emirates to ask for military help in april these sunni led government ordered a demolition of sharia mosques only fueling the anger of the issue of majority and new protests led to the authorities banning demonstrations in october twentieth twelve also six people were arrested for insulting the king on twitter the position was also outraged by the decision to allow the return of the formula one grand prix race in bahrain accusing the government of using it as a cover up for abuses more than a hundred of the most prominent has been put behind bars in the country including seen as the main protest figure in the country and he got a three year sentence that investigators have searched the ship greenpeace protest disease during a protest in the arctic sea earlier this month loans and equipment work cars was
confiscated from the vessel. arrested after they tried to board a russian oil platform on ski how small. the investigation is still continuing we understand that specialists from the investigative committee of the russian prosecutor general's office are now on board. are searching the ship they've already seized documents and equipment on board that ship to determine what the intentions of the greenpeace activists were on september eighteenth when they tried to board the oil rig in the barents sea they also shed some light on what exactly happened then according to the security forces at the oil rig when the boat when the arctic sunrise breached the five hundred meter perimeter around the rig the security asked them to turn back and that they were actually breaching private property the arctic sunrise ship refused to do so and then the activists tried to get on board the oil rig where the security had to use force and detain those
activists then as it stands they are accused of piracy they're not officially charged with piracy yet it is a very serious charge in russian dealing up to fifteen years in prison punishment and when to stand that the greenpeace organization themselves they are staunchly denying any kind of accusations saying that this was a peaceful protest they were not trying to deliver any harm to the oil rig while the investigators have every reason to believe that their actions could have led to serious threats to the lives of the employees of the oil rig and to its equipment so eventually charges may be replaced with breach of private property and they drink the lives of the personnel of the oil rig of course we'll see how that unfolds in the next seventy to seventy two hours this will be more or less clear meanwhile thirty greenpeace activists remain in detention in the mormon street and those are those include the citizens of brazil from the netherlands sweden the united kingdom and ukraine so it's an interesting story but of course we're keeping
track of what's happening in the northern russia and we'll update our viewers with the latest details as we get it. the decision to result austerity has written to by the coalition government of portugal who suffered defeat in local elections the country is likely to see a third consecutive year of recession and tax hikes and forcing people to find new ways to survive as a south pole. alan tasia a sparse beautiful part of portugal and one of the country's poorest regions the rural communities here are used to people needing alpes 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. anna and her two children have been here for a year in her story is one that will be familiar with many families not just in
portugal but all across europe i have lost. the money that. it's not enough through through. unable 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 and underway around seven families a 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 move from the city to here a couple of years ago. so we are still trying to find our place here we have
a well we have this little job of course it's very. it's not something that we have a strong link to a source of income you are like. spring time to. get by growing your own fit in lives. being off the land might seem a delicate but that's the thing about this situation is that many of the people who have come here like our ordinary people he stated the extraordinary difficulties the euro crisis the present of them with so alternative ways of getting by and much like the euro crisis itself that 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 that i i i'm 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 area of work. i feel that i can do it. well and i feel room really say to. people to prepare for me and. the. works like the people who've. gone. through to do the things that they like more. so if r.t.
portugal's island takes you region. and look now at some other global headlines in brief your inspection is investigating allegations of chemical weapons use in syria have now led damascus their report is expected to be issued by the end of october the team face sharp criticism of an earlier investigation of the aug twenty one gas poisoning near damascus with moscow saying it was not summer enough that time was used by the u. ass as a reason to plan strikes against syria. at least forty two people have died and about one hundred were wounded in a wave of campomanes in iran's capital baghdad as many as twelve blasts have been reported strike in crowded markets and car parks in mainly shia areas of the city no one has claimed responsibility so far a series of blasts comes after sunday's assault on a shia mosque in baghdad and a town in kurdistan region. getting around on four wheels is proving
increasingly expensive for europeans and many are now opting to go on to instead with rising fuel prices and an overall financial downturn cycling has turned from just a hobby to a means of transport lower smith now 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 clogged and finances tight london's commuters are increasingly ditching four wheels for two. sister many on here you know just all the cars on the road all the buses and all the delays and huge saving to guarantee that i'm always there on time. hop exposed outside work since i paid so it's yes it's much easier 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 opened a cafe where you can have your bike repair it while you eat it's talking has just gone nuts in london i've lost my life in the last ten years. and yeah we've heard from if it's in from that week oh as we get larger crowds we get people who saw call just because i commute i want to get from a to b. to get people a right to get well so and it's not just the u.k. that's getting on its bike in recession hit spain bikes and now out selling cars for the first time joining fellow pigs countries portugal and greece where hard up europeans are buying almost twice as many bikes as cause it's a similar picture in at least twenty countries all over the continent in the u.k. the trends one of the most pronounced in two thousand and eleven people caught nearly one point three million more new bikes the new cars it's
a drive the government actively supports creating these cycling super highways and on some of london's busiest roads and even offering a forty five cent cut rate of applying a new five. 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 sightings in society the recession. to be fair i started before that there but it's one of them it's one of many factors that's definitely propelling cycling up the charts that we have a massive increase in number of people cycling by almost 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 just have to cater for the number of people today we have the millions all over
europe struggling to combine rising fuel prices and increasingly pricey and over crowded public transport the pedal power you're a smith party. and coming out with new strong the world of sport just. 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 is 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 forward and thus different then how can you go about looking for illegals without looking for people who are different profiling if you were looking for a criminal of slavic origin in uganda when the police be wrong to stop me due to 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. elusive search for justice should individuals including government officials be legally held to account for starting aggressive force like in iraq is it. the bush
era officials be given immunity from prosecution if they're not held accountable ultimately responsible. thank you for joining me for the r.t. sports show. coming up this hall for an hour of top sporting deeds and words from russia and around the globe and here's a taste. scar tissue packs a punch as the scars of petersburg side triumph six two reigning champions did i must go to stay top of the k h l. while all smiles a fellow on ice hockey star alexander ovechkin becomes the first russian to carry the olympic torch to kickstart a record long relay for the salt two winter games. and fast track russia's hottest to win the one prospect's against iraq in.
