10:08 am
attack in the northern caucuses is not just a local attack by a local terrorist we've seen this before it has a history at that by the hardest movement linked to al qaida worldwide inside russia in dagestan in chechnya in this part of the caucasus as we see around the world whatever you have suicide bombers you see also a threat against international democracy and freedom that was political scientist dr will lead to far as and the ninth anniversary of the deadliest terror attack in history has been marked with week this weekend almost three thousand people were killed on september eleventh in new york and mistrust of islam spread among many in the u.s. but despite that tens of thousands of americans decided to become muslim after the tragedy sridhar went to find out why. it's the call to prayer and it's answered by more than a billion muslims all over the world including caitlin billings
10:09 am
a twenty two year old american who was raised christian when converted last year my mother she was crying a lot. that i was returning her by changing my religion back track almost a decade ago. today our fellow citizens our way of life. our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist attacks president bush waged a war on terror targeting extremists muslims who were labeled as terrorists you know i was fourteen when september eleventh happened so i didn't really know what was going on if that really was you know people thought it was so i believe just like everybody else but as billings got older she decided to find out for herself and her investigation led her to the mistah office center a mosque just outside of washington d.c. that has become a haven for many americans like billings who have found allah a new poll found that almost forty percent of americans believe that muslims should
10:10 am
carry identification cards despite that twenty thousand americans every year decide to convert to islam convert say they don't regret their decision at all around the world since nine eleven muslims have battled bands of their religious clothing profiling in airports and discrimination in their everyday lives after joining a class to learn more about islam carl dodge also decided to become a muslim one of the big jokes that i've always made is before i actually set down the class an open microphone on everything i knew about islam i had learned from c.n.n. and when it comes to the mainstream media the depiction of converts can be somewhat extreme that pakistani officials have arrested adam gadahn this is the american born spokesman for al qaeda fox's war first there was john walker lindh the californian who converted joined the taliban and ended up fighting with them in afghanistan and then more recently it was jihad jane the blond haired blue eyed convert who allegedly recruited people to wage violent jihad and for many american
10:11 am
muslims like dodge and billings the portrayal of converts is disturbing if those upset me a little bit because there's a lot of preconceptions people have been until i actually took the time to open up around and see what was written you know that was my only impression of islam as a. what i had seen on t.v. and in the united states they say a culture of islamophobia just doesn't make sense it's a right for practice. that's what this country was founded on no matter what unfolds around her of failing says she's proud to be a muslim if no one in the world wants to talk to me and my friend i saw. a happiness that might not make sense to those around her. to reassure either party annandale virginia. well several incidents showing anti islam sentiment came to the forefront on the anniversary of the september eleventh attacks a man set fire to pages of the koran near ground zero two similar incidents are
10:12 am
said to have happened in the state of tennessee that follows a threat by a florida pastor to burn holy book on the nine eleven anniversary although that was later called off there were also fresh protests against plans to build a mosque close to the side of the tragedy while supporters of the project also valid nearby muslim american activists ramadan says that since nine eleven islam has been misconstrued in the u.s. . really with this shows in the most disturbing part about this debate is it's become an us against them that is the most troubling aspect because we are all americans we're signing collective guilt on the one billion muslims on the acts of nineteen millings that basically defiled islam and practiced a perverted version of islam for a political agenda and now to assign blame on all muslims is completely incorrect
10:13 am
and inaccurate but i think the great majority here islam because they don't understand it. this week's terror attack in russia's north caucuses and the nine eleven anniversary have heated up debate on whether it's possible to stop international terrorism and how and of course we're always interested in your opinion on the topics we cover you can have your say at our web site r t v dot com there were asking what's the best way to eradicate international terrorist networks so far the majority of voters think ensuring high living standards for all may be a solution twenty seven percent support a reversal of globalization another fifteen percent of viewers are quite radical as they are simply in favor of banning all religions and getting rid of fanatics thirteen percent of you are pessimistic and say there is no way to prevent the problem at all while a minority want more security forces are dot com is the place where you can cast your vote. a gathering of some of the finest minds from around the world has put the russian city of jaroslav all firmly on the map this week it played host to the

global policy forum a brainstorming session bringing together statesmen and strategists investors and innovators parties you've got that he has been following it. young what you are in fact see if solver and democracy as it turns out is different things to different states that cycle these years for many years sloppy stand at some democracy and efficiency made it sound a little rain even for the crimea as a talk. it gave some of them the chance to hit the president were all having grounds. to get skinny cyclists and i strongly disagree with those who say there's no democracy in russia and that there's authoritarian tendencies here it's not true that russia is a democracy beyond any doubt it's young it's immature it's still not perfect and experience but it's a democracy nonetheless there's a way to go but we're ready to work on it in some countries democracy is being imposed but it doesn't work that way video we've seen many examples of that last minute talk of democracy in russia is
10:15 am
a moot point lead the country doesn't want denies itself the key message the president just sent in his speech another major topic was security for the some russia has been promoting a new vision for european security architecture was deal with that it says is vital to launching military conflicts similar to that in the south caucasus in two thousand and eight. that what we need to create an institution that will bring together nato and non nato members and other structures u.s. counterpart president barack obama never avoids discussing this issue he does not say that is harmful or unnecessary but i would suggest that among our american partners a certain jealousy exists with regard to this idea however it is necessary to rise over this josee and try to look the truth in the eye without the creation of the system the world will not be able to survive we can help each other. here is one of the first posts of course of the idea of the new european security treaty was italian premier that was corny but before he could make his point he had to find
10:16 am
his words. i like to say that i was not very well informed about the topics to be discussed at this forum the section of my administration which has prepared the speech has prepared the room laughing that's why i'm passing hysterics to the moderator of this portion of the plenary meeting this presentation doesn't correspond to the discussion here many of that evening criticize the us corny for taking more stage time than the host but michonne it that it didn't seem to mind helen prime minister before i see a more definite despise me put forth a formal session of them over to the uk for two days this study and turned into a lib or a tree where some of the world's best minds attempted to find a formula balancing three elements democracy modernization and efficiency did they come up with a single formula of course they didn't but what they agreed upon is no matter what the proportion if a country wants to move forward it needs all three elements in the mix exceeding
10:17 am
the church of r.t.e. from. although a new european security framework will take years of discussion of reforming the current structure is vital so says professor craig calhoun from new york university . i don't think that there has been a resolution about the proposal for the new european security security treaty but i do think that there is now a relationship of mutual respect between president medvedev and president obama and between the two countries and that includes the other european countries that would have to be partners to any sort of agreement so in my view the discussion has to continue possibly for years before there is a resolution the disaster would be if any country breaks off the discussion and refuses to keep this process moving forward because we do need to reach an agreement and a new framework. professor craig calhoun from new york university there speaking at the global policy forum.

a faulty plane but fearless pilots there was a miraculous escape this week for a packed a russian passenger jet when it crashed landed in the middle of a forest in the country's northwest all eighty one people on board survived after a mid-air electrical failure. has the story. the heroes of the tiger these are the men that managed to land a crippled jetliner in the middle of the forest not injure a soul the passengers thankful to be in line were seated closer will any any estimates and any doubt it's emergency crews right to try to wait everything was done has to start this to the fleet reports not for the professionalism of true we would not be standing here over the tupolev one five four always flying at ten thousand meters on its way to moscow from russia's far east when there was a massive electrical failure plane lost all automatic navigation and communication
10:19 am
its fuel supply wing flaps were crippled meeting or had to run quickly and it fired the normal speeds even the lights in the cabin and when tapped by site alone the pilots found abandoned their strip in the depths of the forest and managed to land in a good attempt. by plane was designed to land on a concrete airstrip it first we chose a restaurant in decided to land there but during the maneuver by miracle we caught a glimpse of a concrete strip and all the shorter it would be much safer going to get them despite overshooting and plowing through two hundred metres of woodland before stopping all eighty one people on board were evacuated to safety rather mia which can is a former pilot and actually train the heroes in question he says he's very proud of his form across the trains run up in the clothes they couldn't even tell their altitude or where they were he only had enough fuel for ten minutes of flight. managing to land that plane he practically did the impossible as with the plane
10:20 am
itself investigators are poring over interviews with the crew and witnesses black box recordings and evidence at the site that question what caused such a massive electrical failure or a widening that w. one fifty four is not quite the brand new aircraft and i'm sure that that craft was manufactured probably at least twenty years ago where you would more. i believe there is a chance of that we planned it was just war. our russell airlines which owns the plane says it wasn't aware of any issues before takeoff but added it would never fly again investigators are focusing on mechanical failure rather than pilot error or weather conditions but everyone is expecting the playlets to receive medals their achievement. in time the technical details of this plane's malfunction will join all of the others maybe nation history but one thing will always stand out courage and resourcefulness of the two men who brought it safely to tamasin ozzy

osbourne. and you can find more on that amazing landing and other stories we've been covering at our website r t v dot com take a look at what's online right now. the true cost of luxury see how poachers are searching for one of the world's most precious foods and black caviar are pushing the sturgeon species to the brink of extinction. plus russian inventors have found a way to prevent drivers from falling asleep at the wheel find out what it is and how it works but our t. dot com. t.v. . a former u.s. soldier has found himself at the center of a scandal after posting a controversial video on you tube sergeant dunson was discharged after planting grenades in the cars of iraqis at checkpoints then filming the reaction of drivers
10:22 am
this was supposed to be a prank but reports most iraqis fail to see the. point . which is perhaps why. the time of jokes on unsuspecting drivers. a few of confusion. on his way. but we had a you know under cause there are our it was just one of those things where it you know it happened back on a guy on a guy like up on but for most iraqis this is not fun and life here is very far from being a joke. i think it's only for them to laugh for us it's not funny but very scary. just we're used to part them so that you know users research is happening every day
10:23 am
but if someone did this to me i would be so it's here. as with most people in a country where a checkpoint off in the distance between nine and did it's not uncommon good to have you on tape at least a dozen times a day if you're found to have illegal weapons what you will see the city of britain they will be arrested on the soft and hard to terrorism. and some american military personnel are not seeing the funny side of sergeant dunces antics i would not tolerate that in my organization. i don't think that's conducive to gaining. you know into the partnership with with the federal police or certainly and trusting their confidence in us or the people for that matter and trusting the. trusting in the federal police but i want to a local t.v. stations now picked up on the idea. that it takes well known local celebrities to
10:24 am
iraqi checkpoints and plays pranks on them in much the same way as dunson and his colleagues produce and not by he says it's a way to lighten the situation. in libya we're not making fun of the iraqi forces are very brave and fate and we wanted to present them in a week in different way and that we also wanted to present them this is something people can laugh about even if. there's mixed reaction to the iraqi show but still iraqis making fun of iraqis is very different according to most people here to americans get on your normal activities and with people still being killed in iraq if we day there was a constant reminder that terrorism is no laughing matter. r.t. back to. this week serbia decided not to challenge kosovo's unilateral declaration of independence and the united nations under pressure from the european union belgrade finally agreed to with draw its initial draft resolution which had called
10:25 am
on the secession of kosovo to be denounced a consensus resolution was unanimously adopted by the un general assembly although belgrade does not recognize kosovo's independence as legitimate republicans hold it direct talks with close of violence on all unresolved matters this concession followed a push from the e.u. making it clear that serbia's wish to join the union would be jeopardized if it failed to soften its stance on kosovo political writer diana johnston calls the new un resolution and unconditional surrender by serbia and to the e.u. . oil the present turks that i have seen and i have here is not really a compromise i would call it an unconditional surrender to the european union this was not a compromise because from what i've. understood the european union did not. get in exchange for this they gave nothing is usual and they'll just be asking for more if
10:26 am
they have been for many years serbia is now really very much in the position of france underpaid it's not quite an occupied country but it's surrounded and it's sort of occupied and any leader or policy party which would really openly take into consideration serbia's interests is condemned by the western media as nationalists look within her look we're having to go it's not close to me it's a which the united city use in order to get rid of most of it but when he showed that he was still interested in his country's welfare he's been branded an extreme nationalist and sidelined on the way for you next hour a potential claim to fame the untold story of how a far east russian village might have been the birthplace of north korean leader kim jong il. russian police are hunting for
