that little to do with economics at all author and editor gerald celente thinks the world economic forum has shifted its focus from the central word in its name regard those big to the zero point one percent of the people they have very little concern about what the rest of the people are getting it's one big club and it's a deal making club again all those other little things about you know gay rights equal pay oh that's just a lot of nonsense and it's for the media to write about when they don't want to write about the hard facts of how the so few own so much of how so many own so little. on saturday a taliban suicide bomber killed one hundred three people and injured two hundred thirty five others in the afghan capital those are the latest figures from the country's interior minister.
that bombing in kabul is the deadliest act of terrorism in afghanistan since the truck blast in may last year which claimed one hundred fifty lives and the latest attack follows of recent surge in violence earlier this week and militants attacked a save the children office in the city of jalalabad shortly after a car bomb exploded outside the premises six people were reportedly killed and dozens more injured i still claim to responsibility for the time we spoke to an eyewitness and to a man who lost his son. in the atrocities they shot the second doesn't really worry
first they heard a few shots then we saw a man running and we asked more that happened he told us about the attack we left the area and when we were one hundred meters away a big explosion went off i was wounded in the eyes you can see when i got back i saw that my car was on fire one hour later there were more explosions and the fire started again. the month before one of them with my son who worked as a volunteer at the save the truant officer was killed in the incident his body is still inside the building my son was an educated man he was our financial provider it was only six months ago that my son got engaged. but german media has revealed that the number of islamic extremists in southeastern europe is being under reported by the federal government that's based on classified documents obtained by germany's left party and he's paid to oliver has the story there's a growing threat from islamic extremism in europe based in the balkans and the
german government is keeping it to itself that's according to a highly classified report that's been seen by some left party m.p.'s the media. the german federal government cannot discount the basic threat posed by individuals and splinter groups in the islamist scene in bosnia-herzegovina. the hush hush document goes as far as to claim that there's a direct link between radical islamic groups in bosnia herzegovina and people in germany the true nature of what this heavily classified report says hasn't come out parts of it were redacted from the copy that was shown to the left party the federal government has been trying to downplay the growing islamist threat in public furthermore it's entirely unacceptable that the government continues to cover up the role of the gulf states my colleague charlotta bin ski travel to bosnia herzegovina back in december she witnessed firsthand the situation on the
ground there regarding islamic radicalization the local a mom is telling me that some of the residents have joined islamic state in this one minute of the road and there are people who went to syria and forty on the side of i still but who tried to stop them it looks like an ordinary sleepy village a few houses nestled between the hills not how you might imagine a cradle of terror. a look at mom says he fears for his life off to speaking out against those who joined eisel we do this in a positive with these radical elements are always unpredictable and these people prayed with me they ate at the same table as me and they want to shoot me this open edited version of the report issued by the government raises a lot of questions over what exactly germany knows about islamic radicalization in
the balkans and how bad the situation actually is as we see in the answer to a parliamentarian christian the jungle man gives the ex the tykes expertize that it doesn't ecstasy in the gate the possibility that single persons or groups belonging to the islamistic seen of boston you know well if they go we know it could be a threat to germany and europe but in the same time the government indicts to speak about it financial transactions that are provided for example by the govt states or turkey to the bucket states as well as the sending of the muslims by the states in contrary to the german secret service people and it's not. the german government tries to hide the fact of growing danger coming from islam is the groups from the. might the taking place in russia this sunday will be taking you live to central moscow to find out why after this shot back.
what politicians do you should. put themselves on the line. to get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. some want to. let you go i. was like. three people. i'm interested in the law. would you do one goodish men using a restoration and sit over the. exchange to legislate this back see that oh goody this is censor see this week we just stood up.
welcome back now supporters of a russian opposition figure alexina valmy are gathering in a number of cities to protest russia's upcoming presidential elections correspondent joins me now live from one of those rallies taking place in central moscow right now. good to see you how many people have turned out for this rally and what are they on happy about. well nikki there are a few dozen people around here and they keep flocking in really maybe just over one hundred and they are calling to boycott the twenty eighteen presidential election this has been the key message of their leader the. key figure in the valley he of course wanted to run for presidency in that race himself but he wasn't allowed to
because of the suspended sentence of five years that he's still serving for investment now out of this location has not been approved by the most cool stories they had no problem with the demonstration itself but they offered a different one but alexina valley and his supporters decided to carry on with this one literally hundreds and hundreds of meters away from the kremlin now with effectively by russian according to the russian law this makes this gathering illegal but the police are already calling for the people to disperse but so far they have been allowing the demonstration to happen now this very action in fact what you are hearing right now are the calls to disperse but now this action is only one of many it is a russia wide action and it has been taking place all the way from vladivostok to kaliningrad really in those places where the actions would you regal where the actions were taking place in the approved locations they turned out to be peaceful
and there were no problem with them in other locations there were some some people have been detained now of course of the action here the demonstration here is only kicking off we'll be standing by here bringing you the latest. thank seiko we appreciate that last thought is a cost on speaking to us live from central moscow. now after islamic state was pushed out of syria last year people in liberated areas don't think putting their lives back together but in some places that's hard at the end of this as are thousands more are explain the end justifies. it means they say some things no matter how horrible just have to be done because they're hard core finances they have to be rooted out this is an ugly business but it is necessary business it's only after when the dust settles and you see what you've done the to start having second thoughts this is when you say damn what did i just do the devastation goes
back as far as you can see it is almost beyond description how deep the damage is as many as a thousand strikes a month on record alone just strikes not including. tanks and all that more than eighty percent of the city was deemed unfit to even by the un as city hall but raised so let's start with the obvious incredible work has to be done just to get people back into their homes except we won't pay here is the disclaimer stabilisation not reconstruction the us will help fix the pipes but someone else is going to have to sort out the rest of this mess no sir the coalition freed you you do the rest we humanity ariens including the un did not have access to iraq a city because of the presence of explosive hazard that time
a nation which is endangering people trying to return to iraq a city and it's also endangering humanitarian access over two hundred people have died while trying to return to their homes and hundreds more have been injured from our understanding of the reports that we have only a limited number of neighborhoods in iraq a city have been cleared for returns and that's mainly in the outskirts. so who is going to pay to rebuild an entire city the guys who held the straw it say they won't the civilians returning from tents in refugee camps the syrian government which doesn't even control rocca who. families in the west african nation of mali are seeking answers over a french airstrike that allegedly killed eleven local soldiers it's be more than two months since the bombing raid and officials from both sides have given
conflicting versions of what happens r.t. spoke with the relatives of one of the soldiers my nephew was taken prisoner during the attack on the new power security post there were people dead people wounded and people missing. i ask for anyone who can help us get out of here don't leave us in this place. he saw the french intervened to destroy a jihadi camp during this intervention eleven million soldiers lost their lives. the operations are good so that sarah's training camp and the notes on was the presence of molly soldiers established. that there were eleven hostages found on this site and all of them died during this operation one day they tell us that the hostages were there during the bombing and the next day
the tell us otherwise. certainly via wanted to say that their levon mali and hostages that were at this site had joined the jihadi movement we consider that to be an insult to the memory of these men who lost their lives in the service of the nation. they were indeed hostages of terrorists and there should not be any ambiguity between our friends friends and us. both because superior phoned me saying that after checking they found no evidence as to whether boubacar is dead or alive while waiting to receive news regarding our son. france launched its intervention in mali back in two thousand and fourteen off the islamist militants seized parts of the country and around four thousand french troops are involved in the anti terror operation which is still ongoing and just a few weeks ago the u.k.
agreed to bolster their campaign with attack helicopters thanks now a saudi arabian beauty pageant has seen the competitors going the extra mile to make sure that they win but some people have called the hump over contestants cheating. thank you thank you thank her. thank. her for her her makes the head more inflated so when the camel comes it's like oh look at how big that head it's it has big lips a big nose. gear cheating everyone a fine should be applying her her.
well we'd love to hear what you think about that story and the rest of us dories or of course to do get in touch by following us on social media i'll be back at the top of the hour with the latest headlines i'll see you then. here's what people have been saying about rejecting the neighbors throughout the centuries full on ourselves well the only show i go out of my way to launch you know a lot of the really packs upon our leadership is the john oliver of our three americas doing the same thing we are verily better than nothing better said i see people you never heard of love or doubt for the night was the president of the world bank so are you going to go for a seriously send us an e-mail. about your sudden passing i've only just learnt you worry yourself and taken your last wrong turn.
to you as we all knew it would i tell you i'm sorry suddenly i could so i write these last words in hopes to put to rest these things that i never got off my chest . i remember when we first met my life turned on each breath. but then my feeling started to change you talked about more like it was a game still some more fun to feel those that didn't like to question our arc and i secretly promised to never be like him it said one does not leave a funeral in the same as one enters the mind gets consumed with the death of this one to. speak to him out because there are no other takers. claimed that mainstream media has met its maker. with more makers manufacture consent to step into public wealth. when the
launched it remains one of the most fruitful rounds of talks on the israeli palestinian issue not only because of the formal accords it produced but also because it managed to put the protagonist in one room and have them talk to one another and some believe these direct exchange was only possible because. they are as you can now the u.s. administration tries to mediate between the israelis and the palestinians how big of a problem is the mediation itself well to discuss that i'm now joined by guests in boston founder and cochairman of the israel palestine creative original initiative mr buskin thank you very much for your time it's great to have you on the show thank you now i know that you've advised many israeli palestinian international leaders on the middle east peace process and now that. the u.s. vice president mike pence has arrived to the region trying to restart this negotiating process once again i wonder if there is any advise that you would give him. advice i would give vice president. and
i wrote to president trump on the first day of his. mission is that after so many years of negotiations the israelis and the palestinians need to know that the need to resolve this problem themselves they need to sit in the room by themselves and how shouter an agreement is the united states needs to inform the israelis and the palestinians that they will be there to help if required to provide bridging proposals to raise international support and finance for a peace process but if the israelis and the palestinians are going to be dependent on a third party mediator it is unlikely that we're going to find a mediator who is going to be able to bring the parties into the room and work out an agreement this is what we've seen over two decades already but mr barak and i think the end notable change of the past year is that it's true i know it please that you believe that the americans were never an unbiased mediator but at least they went to great pains to come across as such breach had
a certain restraining influence on all sides the trauma mission couldn't care less about it and i'm sure you know that in the in this speech before. mr pan's didn't make a single nod to the palestinians he didn't mention that world the word settlements even once and i think it was quite clear that the he's administration is positioning itself not as a mediator or pretend mediator but as a fully fledged backer of one side how does it change the negotiating dynamic overall well there are no negotiations there haven't been negotiations for more than four years so i don't think it really changes anything to be fair to vice president pence he did refer to keeping the status quo at the religious sites in jerusalem he called the temple mount to her almost surely from referring to that as being the place where muslims pray he did say that the israelis and the palestinians would need to agree on the borders and the sovereignty in in jerusalem's and you did say that the united states would support a two state solution if the two parties agreed on that so i think that there was
room there but i don't believe that the trumpet ministration camp. an impartial mediator or bring the parties into the room at this time to meet mr bascomb in. fact if we compare it to the kind of overtures that he made israel for example telling the knesset that he's administration is going to expedite the whole process of moving american embassy to jerusalem i think it certainly doesn't feel like. much of an extended hand to the to the palestinians i know that back in december you didn't read much into these. moving proposal but now that the administration seems to be following through with that the standing ovation that it received in knesset as well as the netanyahu government overall efforts to get the most out of the trumps administration do you feel concerned i'm very concerned not because the americans are going to move their embassy to jerusalem they're going to move their embassy to west jerusalem and drusilla has been the top of the of israel
for seventy years now it's not recognized by the international community because the international community has believed that the drop zone issue needs to be resolved in a negotiated agreement between the jews and the arabs the israelis and the palestinians but i don't think the american move or their embassy is really going to change anything on the ground didn't mind what it does is it pushes up the urgency of reaching an agreement because the drilling issue is so sensitive and so much a core of the israeli palestinian relationship that we need to resolve the issue of jerusalem even in the knesset yesterday the arab palestinian arab members of knesset held up a sign which in english said jerusalem is the capital of palestine but in arabic and said east jerusalem they were very quickly whisked out of that room into which mr pound sad that he believed that that was a sign of democracy believe it or not that those people were forcibly taken out of their own out of the room don't you think that they trumpet ministry issue which is
very unabashed and unashamed about. it's own tendencies is going to bring out the worst from the israeli political class i don't have any expectations that the trumpet ministration can play the role of mediator we don't know if the trumpet ministration is going to present some kind of peace plan the ultimate deal the deal of the century that he's been talking about i think it's very unlikely that he's going to put something on the table that both the israelis and the palestinians can agree to it is likely to be like prior american proposals much more buryas to the israeli position than the palestinian position in which case there won't be agreement and the israelis and the palestinians won't be able to reach a negotiation that will enable them to sign on the bottom line and find a solution for jerusalem and the two state solution the issue of borders the issue of settlements the issue of refugees the security relationship the. ownership and the management of the water resources all these issues need to be negotiated
between the israelis and the palestinians and it's unlikely that the trumpet ministration is going to pull the the rabbit out of the heart and find an agreement for all of these issues i don't have those expectations now i heard you say before that the american mediation historically lad to both these rallies and the palestinians talking to the americans rather than one another and if the americans are sidelined for one reason or another and at least for now the palestinians are refusing to talk to the americans could that facilitate a more direct exchange bit been going to ease of if of course those talks ever commence perhaps but i don't think there's much of a chance of talks taking place between the israelis and the palestinians before we have changes of leadership in israel and palestine it seems that not to know binyamin netanyahu is moving closer and closer toward an indictment interest he's going to be challenged by the israeli legal system in the israeli public of whether or not he can remain prime minister and i think we all recognize that president
abbas with all due respect to him is in the twelfth year of a four year term and. little legitimacy on the streets of palestine even though he is the president and the leader most palestinians want new elections they want to be able to choose their new leader i don't see the dynamic where not in you know in abbas under any circumstances we'll come back into the room but we also have to face another reality these two people are here they exist side by side there is communication going back at different functional technical levels electricity water taxes movement of goods movement of people there is always going to be some relationship taking place between the parties and we have the occupation which continues and israeli settlement building and palestinian threats of use of violence it's not a good situation we need to find a way to talk i don't see where the entry point is yet you said it's not a good situation and it hasn't been good for many many decades and i think you would agree with me but this conflict has long needed found sort of
a shake up that would just hold the teesside out of that complacency could be chump administration with all its controversial and very divisive decisions be that agent of change that would hasten the expiration date for the status quo i wish it's unlikely but trump could surprise us as i said his team his son in law. and jason greenblatt and other people in the in the administration are working on a plan i think that from what we understand their plan is going to be based on a wider circle of regional cooperation with jordan and egypt in the saudis and the emirates and the kuwaitis and other states in the region and certainly bringing in more players into the stage and putting more goods on to the table could create opportunities for both israel and palestine but the core of this is israel and palestine the core is ending the israeli occupation the chorus two capitals in jerusalem and a two state solution that has to be resolved and then supported from the outside i
think that other international. players such as russia and the european union the united nations also have a played a role a role to play here and they could make a contribution as well well let me ask you specifically about the european union because instead of meeting with fans mahmoud abbas the palestinian authority president traveled to brussels and it's clear that the europeans who also happen to be the most generous donors to the palestinian territories quite in sounds to with what they see as trumps recklessness but they are also being their true self in a sense of being very slow very careful about what they say and what they do you do you think they will ever have enough in themselves to mosques or that courage to recognize the state of palestine as abbas has been pleading with them it seems that they won't be able to do that the european union is a complex body of twenty different twenty different sovereign countries we will see a process of individual countries perhaps recognizing palestine there are talks
that slovenia might recognize palestine soon sweden has already done it certainly some eastern europe european countries have done it in the past before they were members of the european union there are parliaments in the european union countries that have called on their governments to recognize public. i think this would be a positive development but i don't see it happening very quickly i ask you speaking here on russia today would would russia recognize the state of palestine would russia declare use troops on the capital of palestine well i'm pretty sure that russia will not be the first power to do that and that's precisely because of what's happening across israel's border in syria because for russia the greatest stakes out there and risking their relationship they have at the moment the prime minister netanyahu for nor clear benefit the geo political benefit or do political certainty at this point of time i think russia would deem that as extremely risky
that's why i'm asking actually about the european union because the european union is not involved. in syria or in libya to such an expensive perhaps they have some leverage with all parties that they could employ deploy rather it's too difficult for the european union representing so many countries to be able to make a decision which is so controversial so i think that we will see european policy makers encouraging individual countries to take steps that empower the palestinian authority that recognizes perhaps the state of palestine they talk about i know the czech republic prime minister had said that in the future in the framework of a peace agreement the czech republic would be happy to recognized east jerusalem as the capital of palestine and west jerusalem as the capital of israel i think this is in fact the official position of russia as well that in the future in an agreement on a two state solution that could be the capital palestine in west jerusalem the capital of israel well bad for the position of many countries and the they are any and the shame is that no country is making
a decisive step to make that theoretically arrangement in reality mr busking we have to take a very short break now but we'll be back in just a few minutes stay tuned. join me every thursday on the alec simon show and i'll be speaking to us from the world of politics sports business i'm show business i'll see you then. apply to many clubs over the years so i know the guy even saw you guys. the ball isn't only about what happens on the pitch or the final school it's about the passion from the families it's the age of the shaper money. is expected to go to
