the man not only on people but there are those who create heroes like robin hood and it's the likes of osama bin laden or other so-called leaders who create a year there's a new generation that is hungry and business and aggressive if there's a conflict on the internet and the easy access to information freely and easily and the worst is ignorance that is reinforced but it isn't and this is a huge danger to the us in response politicians bombard the public with proposals for even more policies like policing internet behavior reducing the number of new immigrants or stripping some of their citizenship which critics say are holo president sarkozy has been really trying to expose the line. party here as well. you know ways attacking immigrants talking about. making issues. of muslim groups these have become major issues in france
9:14 am
rather than the question of creating jobs and perhaps the question of how to bring back the very basics of a society that calls itself a gallon tarion tesser sylvia r.t. paris. let's describe discuss i should say the immigration policy is in the e.u. the upcoming election with political analyst who is in brussels and now joins us live alex how big a threat are immigrants to the e.u. as a whole in reality. i don't think it's a it's a big threat to a reformist e.u. if each of the member states of the e.u. at the wheel to reform their welfare state then integration would be seen as an opportunity and out of the threat. sarkozy has threatened to freeze money to france the money that russia said the money that france pays towards running the european union if he's reelected what do you think is behind this well we all know what it means i mean we all know that during
9:15 am
a presidential election in france before the first round every sun to right or center left going to do trade to secure all the right wing votes so you know sarkozy's clearly campaigning on on its ratio he's clearly courting the extreme right voters that's why we have. mrs i mean this huge week euro skeptic rate. but i'm sure that. for the i mean just before the first round. i mean sarkozy. all these pledges to speak from right and move closer to the center . first of all do we see very much of a similar kind of rhetoric coming from him the first time around in the sense that i think it's fair to say it works and how much do you think it's going to work this time how much is that nationalist sentiment going to play with the voters but. you know the. euro skeptic left and right is know something about like thirty
9:16 am
percent of the vote so it's clearly. when you are some to left or center right politician you know you you really want. to be seen as a little era skeptic but not too much because you will always. scared here the centrist voters. most european politicians promise to sort out the e.u. come election time yet voters still see it as a bureaucratic behemoths which takes on more that which takes on more than it gives is this just jumping on the russia but brussels bashing bandwagon or is it easy influence that's waning. you know france. i mean the french contribution to the e.u. budget is something like twenty billion euro but you have to strike from that the fact that for example for us receive. ten billion euro for the
9:17 am
for the cup so so we need you to receive ten billion euro for subsidies for for its farmers so i have a very sound actually strategy for sarkozy if you really want to reduce the french contribution you budget you must scrap the cap we all know that the cap piece you skis are scrubbed so let's scrap it. all right alex problem to us live from brussels thank you very much for your analysis. was mia is marking twenty years since the start of one of the bloodiest conflicts in recent history that left almost one hundred thousand dead and over four million displaced in the capital sarajevo an orchestra will play in front of thousands of empty red chairs one for every man woman and child killed in the city of the war resulted from the breakup of yugoslavia and began after the european community recognized as an
