ukraine could cut the transit of russian gas or through its territory here ever believe that that will help increase the pressure on moscow after sanctions were imposed by the e.u. it could also however end up hurting its allies as irina going to school reports. obviously it will affect russia's shipments to europe but it should look at the implications the situation will have on russia's european partners especially of the countries that are in the center in the east and in the south of europe some of them are getting as much as almost one hundred percent of their gas supply from russia via ukraine and of course with all those countries have already found themselves out in the cold literally here in the so-called gas wars between russia and ukraine some years back and they could be looking for another repetition of that experience if indeed ukraine does go through with its promise of sanctions and we may assume that ukraine wants to punish russia by imposing these sanctions but
11:08 am
as a result what we're looking at really is ukraine punishing its european neighbors political analysts and the tail saddam fell to believes ukraine sanctions plan is likely to raise eyebrows among its european partners this proposal will never gets reality since the pressure from brussels by commission and other actors from the national states but furthermore it shows that the ukrainian government is not willing to cooperate at all and sees only their own interest after hearing this is for all the states in southeast europe like austria. hungary serbia and bulgaria to lobbying much more to get a very secure supply of gas and if you create it's not building to guarantee it there will be other options. well one of the options to pump russian gas into europe while bypassing ukraine is the south stream project well now the

the rally. thousands of gathered here at b.b.c. have orders who were going to isis are saying this is our biggest rally to date in support of the palestinian people the rally started here because this is the year of protests against what they say is the b.b.c.'s on their voice over it all the phones like in gaza are just the first time they're your father back because they feel that their message is not being heard the b.b.c. to not presenting like you want to study now that they're not moving over to the us embassy will be the one thing the worst government stops thanks to a strong word demanding the british government to do as he said was it's also whether arms exports are growing people are going to try to force arms exports ok to the preschool which they're mostly good for. one or more of the power to the israelis so we can kill innocent children already and published which are not

11:15 am
israel itself there are many making their anger heard but as are his policy reports that can be consequences to speaking out. the warning gaza is becoming a hash tag headache the air war in the skies has been joined by the hot air war online with almost two thousand casualties across the border it's no wonder many arab israelis are rebelling in support of the gaza brethren but sometimes there's a price to pay as russians are treating the most russia helped organize demonstrations against the israeli army and posted online about what he and others call the i.d.f. massacres in gaza the police investigated me several times for my political activity especially during the war period and also i have received threats through the phone through facebook by right wing callers who work for things like. killing and things like that several israeli mayors have suspended

outworkers for posting support for gaza's fighters online some israeli universities hospitals and even mobile phone companies have followed suit one student who wore a t. shirt with the word palestine and a cafe near a traditional palestinian scarf now faces possible expulsion they are expressing their opinion it might be in a sarcastic way but it doesn't have any incitement to violence it doesn't have an incitement for its isn't it doesn't call for any act of faith violence and therefore legally speaking it is part of the speech that should be given the protection of the constitutional air protection arab students were too frightened to speak to us on camera but what they would say is that the university had completely ignored posts calling for their death the reality shows us not only now but also before that when it gets to the freedom of expression of the arabs it is easily more easily restricted l.f.
11:17 am
a tip deals with such cases as the head of a worker's rights organization he's now contacted almost daily baraboo police who've been fired. suspended for speaking out against israel's operation in gaza even those who condemn the racism of far right wing israelis face punishment sadly we have been in this before like the for the second intifada of a situation of like this time that's what more wider. and you feel it's a lot of hate a situation of really going to the bad. i'm not feeling that the government is doing anything for a country that claims to be the only democracy in the region it's a serious charge in today's world the fight for public opinion is arguably as important if not more than what goes on on the battlefield as critics of israel's operation in gaza continue to climb both in and outside the country tel aviv will need to find a more efficient weapon than just merely trying to silence her detractors policy
11:18 am
ality tel aviv. coming up on our international giant to take exploration project to russia you would boil giant sun meaning that the most northerly oil well in russia was coming. when the unit union promised to net ukraine become part of it it clearly contributed to the exacerbation of tensions within ukraine ukraine will not become part of the european union won't tell tales ukraine absolutely doesn't have the economic level to become part of the e.u. or.
11:19 am
i marinate join me. in that impartial and financial commentary for news and much much. only on bombast and on. the pentagon has released a video of a strikes against the hottest militants controlling the launch and strategic a crucial western iraq here you can see and that's eight hundred tons of that of which are waiting until early positions belonging to the islamic state terrorist group the attacks come from after president obama pledged to protect the was
11:20 am
personnel in iraq against the. rapid advance of the extremist but as r.t.c. got these quotes washington can be targeting its own military hardware in the. one leaving behind a sovereign stable and self-reliant iraq three years on is america coming back today also rise to operations in iraq. targeted airstrikes to protect our american personnel and a humanitarian effort to help save thousands of iraqi civilians the target this time is the islamic state formally known as isis a terror organization which hasn't only been rampaging through the country with tremendous speed and extreme violence but is even proclaimed its own state stretching from iraq to syria so radical even al qaeda says it's too much brutally murdering anyone even muslims in its way destroying holy sites attacking religious minorities taking control of key infrastructure including wood refineries and dams
11:21 am
military hardware as well well certainly potentially more dangerous today than al-qaeda they are very extremely radical group with increasing capabilities capabilities which you are only slamming state to set its sights way beyond iraq and syria. and could tell you. and i know i don't know how to do that to another but it wasn't just the two of you know the. lot of the not enough. of the self and the model. because you can't buy shell love and hate and i got so enough i'd say a lot in keep a will of dealing with them on its own back that's to washington for help but where did the slumming state or isis fighters come from we are where we are because we armed the syrian rebels we have been fighting alongside al-qaeda fighting alongside i says isis is now emboldened into countries but here's the anomaly we're with isis in syria we're on the same sort of the war so those who want to get involved to stop isis in iraq are allied with isis in syria that is the real contradiction to
11:22 am
this whole policy the white house says that the limited u.s. military action in iraq could be saying that. the slanted state tightens its grip on iraq according to the un and around two hundred thousand new refugees have fled their homes while isis claims it's made more than a dozen military gains over the past five days alone. r t. washington says its latest operation in iraq is aimed at containing the advance of the jihad is what many believe they were given a wall then a leg up by the u.s. in the first place. we really have to look at the reality and kishen of western foreign policy in the middle east hostility place because right now we have a situation where the west is opposing isis rebels in northern iraq and rightly so but has been tacitly ordered personally supporting them in syria is madness these are us weapons us weapons on both sides in this combat just as three years ago in
11:23 am
libya and in so many wars when you are the top supplier of weapons to the world seventy nine percent of weapons transfers into the middle east or from the united states you're going to have u.s. weapons evolved on all sides which is just fine for absolutely heartless weapons makers looking for a profit but it fuels destruction. here's some of what's lined up for you online a u.k. health care providers to decide if better to even hail them to inject twenty cups of heroin addiction find out how they are lending a helping hand. and a thirteen year old girl takes the wife principal at a value in an innovative method of tackling teen five a boiling for more head to our tea. well giants from russia and america have launched a joint project to explore the arctic now rather than after an exxon mobile using
11:24 am
a giant ray go in but no we didn't company and all the atlantic drilling to work on an oil well that's the most northerly in russia during a teleconference shot at the launch of let me read to had a word of praise of for america's exxon mobil and its cooperation in the project both u.s. and russian companies have expressed their long term commitment which will. start in your book but what if their attention resources in this project can be compared with the biggest reserves in saudi arabia and are much bigger than the resources of the mexican goes along. ask canada so we're paying special attention. of the road on your street that would look like from is located far out on the open sea so there is a multi-level system of security here and reducing the lead to stick knowledge of. the sea where the two will be operating is covered with think eyes for most of the year but underneath is an estimated six billion tons of extractable oil it belongs
11:25 am
to the west siberian province which already provides russia with most of its oil and gas now the platform is capable of drilling down seven kilometers keep the boy filled out of the center for policy studies think tank believes is spied thank sions this it will be as the feds for example of international corporation. particular project they've been working on it for several years. mobil have already invested many many millions of dollars they could do with the oil and they're going to have the sanctions do not apply to this particular project because the deal was already signed a russian state oil company has a twenty percent investment by b p a mobile exxon are really looking to find new sources of hydrocarbons so they really need this fine may have already
11:26 am
invested considerable amount of money so they'd have to write that off if things didn't go ahead so i think in that respect prospects are relatively optimistic. now look at some of the world headlines this hour an egyptian court has dissolved the political wing of the muslim brotherhood prevented taking part in parliamentary elections expected later this year the government declared the organization and terrorism group last year accusing it of supporting protests after the military removed president mohamed morsy many of the party's leaders have previously been sentenced to death on charges of murder and infighting going. in pakistan supporters of an anti government cleric have clashed with police in several cities at least seven people are reported killed in the violence and several of arrested get a base to hear that he returned to pakistan in june and vowed to stage mass protests to topple the government accusing it of corruption. bad break in the

saddle with abby martin. during a press briefing president barack obama said something very unusual and used a certain term you'll almost never hear from a government bureaucrat he told the audience that in the immediate aftermath of nine eleven we america did some things that were wrong we did a whole lot of things that were right but we tortured some folks yeah it is a rare thing to hear someone in the white house admit to torturing people after nine eleven but the question is why did he say this now please allow me to suspect first obama is the teleprompter master since he loves to read off
11:28 am
a screen i doubt this was some sort of slip up this was probably done consciously but why well it always helps if you a look good by condemning the moral failings of previous presidents liberals and democrats love to hate bush so this could be subs kind of pandering or trying to look good by comparison headlines like obama condemns torture sound nice and dry out the fact that he sure approves of shelling civilians in eastern ukraine if obama really does feel that the post nine eleven torture was a shameful part of american history that as the leader of the executive branch of the nation he could do a lot to punish those who did the torture then and prevent it from happening again the future but if i do obama this is all just a bunch of sweet talk but that's just my opinion. and. more likely to be raped in college and in the real world. i didn't think
