3:08 pm
i'm even more shocked that this college is one i opened when i was the town mayor working there was nice and it was located in a neighborhood without any problems of violence by i don't think that this act of terror is a crazy man steve but a premeditated act. well following comments by president not calling the throngs would not step back from showing these controversial cartoons that has been this out spilling of anger in many muslim majority countries with protests in bangladesh in jordan libya and in other countries there's also been a call for a boycott of french products and we've heard the turkish president who is essentially led the charge saying the president not going to have his mental health check all of this cons as the director general of the national police of france has been urging for the last few days for additional vigilance in the wake of what's
3:09 pm
happening this anti french sentiment he indeed said to people that they needed to be extra vigilant particularly around places such as religious sites which of course this church in nice is. or we've been getting reaction from authorities in the city including the 1st deputy mayor of nice to the border. sister channel r.t. france he said his country was at war. the aggressor decapitated a woman those 3 people killed the victims of islamist barbarism because the attack who's dead it is yet to be a standish cried out of whack by several times of course we will have to be relentless in the face of this barbarism we can't leave this battle for our children we have to wage it now using our means of warfare we have to be decisive stick to the law and use new tactics keeping in mind the current events in our country in nice we use all the tools at our disposal to counter terrorism at the
3:10 pm
same time we're mindful of the fact that the instruments we use that a municipal level are not adequate to help the government in this battle we need additional a lawful means to eradicate islam over fascism. well enough it's time to act and i would like to tell mr matt corner mr dogman our stay of paris there's no need to come to us vice had already come to us when $86.00 people died on the promenade day on glen or lard had already visit the dust to no need to come better stay in paris and do something just do something how do the residents of nice react to this the same as me their few reus with super tired of this it's the 2nd time an islamist terrorist attacks a church in france for the 3rd time in our country people have been beheaded once again when will these stop. let's also take a listen to what former austrian foreign minister a current knesset associate professor at northeastern university boston lecturer
3:11 pm
britain's told the program earlier about the french president's handling of recent events. present then has many many people behind him when he was very beginning. to teach. this topic dominated everything in this current situation and the dissociated circumstances what's really needed is. a more conciliatory tory tone on each and everybody's sides 6000000 muslims living have a certain percentage who are radical in the last. branch that has developed on the outlook and will that from seminar will security is. what france needs right now much more. sort of reconciliation and more polarized when it comes to the muslim world as. genuine
3:12 pm
diplomacy and not by a bike even let's. only on french i mean again i have deep respect for these french well you know that they are not the only want existing in the world and they have been speired a lot of people who could also pose over the last 300 years but the world has also become a little bit more problem. we have to take that into account and i think when it comes to this international dimension that we have seen over the last few weeks it needs genuine diplomacy it needs retching mccrone has to find it but mostly on sort of a rhetorical level that has angered parts of the muslim world it's gone international there have been boycotts against france nerves been a heightened state of alert for french assets overseas served in riots event metro needs to do a better job of balancing his pretty principles with public safety and fostering
3:13 pm
a sense of inclusion what we're going to see is less convergence even more sort of a pain to receive shut. where are the french government is going to move further to the right and more islamists and those sympathetic to it or going to become the anti france and that sense we may actually see the french public also move to the right to kim titian's for this attack are not only still present but are going to be exacerbated and so i 1st see more islamist attacks in france probably in the near future if the past month is any indication but we'll have more coverage of the day's breaking news right after the break here on r t international stay with us. you
3:14 pm

3:15 pm
in the depths. or a maybe in the shallows. quarter of an hour past the hour welcome back well as the killings in nice the french consulate in the saudi city of jeddah also came under attack today guard was left with stab wounds after being targeted by a knife armed with a knife the attacker was arrested the guard was not seriously injured called on saudi authorities to ensure the safety of french people in the country earlier my colleagues discuss what lies behind the recent wave of attacks. this is been the pattern for the last several years of attacks and terror all over france and they've been seeing 2015 the attack on sharlee abdul headquarters
3:16 pm
a dozen people killed then same year the attacks and in paris more than 100 people killed 400 injured the next year the truck attack in nice 80 people killed 20172018 more stabbings shootings ramming then 2000 the tack of a police station other shootings and stabbings this is this is a horrific. horrific pattern leading up to this year and of course 2 weeks 3 attacks and many of these attacks can be traced back to these characters charlie abdu and this is perhaps the reason the french patiences is running out and there is there is this sense in the president's reaction to the murder of the french teacher 2 weeks ago that you know the french government is toughening up its position but samuel was murdered for the very reason that embodied the values of
3:17 pm
the french republic he was killed because islamists want to destroy our future and what silent hill is like simultaneity they will not prevail samuel was a victim of lies and conspiracy theories of the hatred of others of what we are on friday he became the face of the republic and our desire to break down terrorist networks islamic rules to live like a community of free citizens. he was talking there about the beheading of the french teacher a couple of weeks ago i want to differentiate government do you in particular in response to that was a very strong reaction they went after muslim civil society shutting down some 50 energy use and charities including the collective against the slobber phobia in france which is can see. somewhat mainstream nevertheless they have now gone after the more than 200 people are either awaiting deportation from france or have been arrested by authorities on suspicion of being radicalized in you know the
3:18 pm
interior minister has come out and called some of these in jews' enemies of france enemies of france of that these are french n.g.o.s these are french organizations french charities what they hope to achieve with this. is unclear at the moment but what we do know it has provoked a strong reaction from muslim countries well there's been a double reaction this was the 1st reaction has been condolences condolences with regards to the murder of the teacher condolences with regards to what has happened today even even turkey coming out and saying that you know this is completely unacceptable there is no justification for behaving people the other reaction has been not to what is happening in france but to what french authorities are saying and in the muslim world this is from north africa all the way to southeast asia them and malaysia the reaction has been very different because they're seeing they're hearing what the french are saying not as not as condemnation of terrorism
3:19 pm
as islamophobia needs mental health treatment what else can be said to a head of state who does not understand freedom of belief and who behaves in this way to millions of people living in his country who are members of a different faith muslims are the primary victims of the cult of hatred empowered by colonial regimes and exported by their own clients insulting 1100000000 muslims and their sanctities for the apparent crimes of such extremists is not you know stick abuse of freedom of speech it only fuels extremism the recent statements that the leadership level is the dence of this a creation of the holy qur'an a reflection of this increasing islamophobia that is spreading in european countries we must explain. to the western world the value systems differ for different social and religious and ethnic groups in the world we also have muslims ordinary muslims all over the world people who have one of nothing to do with
3:20 pm
terrorism we want nothing to do with these beheadings in who condemn condemn violence they're still coming out into the streets there waving banners across the muslim world even even here there was a small demonstration in moscow today. before before this incident and what people want to know is where does free speech end and where does religious tolerance begin because by by the descriptions of these characters the point of them was was to insult they are insulting their crude they're insulting and the point was to get a reaction this is what many muslims many analysts say that surely do which usually doesn't sell very many copies i believe the in the past was around 60000 that they feed they capitalize on huge amounts of huge amounts of attention that they get after every publication after every major incident that there are in the limelight . this is what ordinary people are saying that you know there's been
3:21 pm
a history of this now they keep doing it and doing it and it isn't it isn't for. the defense of freedom of speech is as an act of freedom of speech which is obviously very different to the position of many secular organizations journalists the french authorities that say religion is religion and it is it is subject to free speech you can say whatever you want about religion nevertheless there has been this this pattern of protests and violence around it charlie it do. or we've been hearing a range of opinion and reaction to all of today's events. tensions are mounting every day between the slimy word and france in france we have the french government saying that we have the freedom of speech we have the freedom to do any supplier about anyone we want and on the other side we have the slimy words which says ok you can have the freedom of speech but do you do you shouldn't be insulting our
3:22 pm
prophet so this 2 points of view are opposing each other and this 2 communities don't understand each other if we want to stop the radical islam here in france we should prove and we should show them that france is a neutral country that what we call here. no religion has the right to interfere with with the government or the state of affairs in france this radical muslim don't understand that and the french government regarding its freedom of speech says that the we have the right to do anything you want to anyone who we want and this is our right this is our freedom of speech but in general we should understand and the viewers should understand that in france we have almost a total freedom of speech which saw 1st few exceptions and few restrictions but these restrictions never apply to muslim that's i mean that's what the muslim of the french muslim they feel that the freedom of speech is. suffers no received and
3:23 pm

year here which was 15 years ago. i thought. you see these commercials you know about helping other countries and i'm thinking look at this place. and why isn't there commercial to help the people here like there's not running water in the houses and and there's you know the so they still have this honey look at system they have to haul their water like this is not america anymore you know not the america i grew up in this is like wow. newtok is a very rural. community with their language and their culture and their subsistence it's really strong here still and that's a good thing. but worst case scenario my fear is that a couple of houses are lost families or are displaced and have to move to other communities or bethel with other family members and that yeah this that that new village doesn't get built quick enough for new talk to move there and then it
