5:11 pm
question to you do you think that an end to this moratorium will help the peace process be the end of it. i don't think that freezing jewish building in judea and some area has anything to do with peace whatsoever we have i misidentified what the cause of of not having peace here is the cause is the arab world at large and the palestinians in particular are not accepting the right for the do to have a state here and so therefore the phrase has nothing to do with peace whatsoever and never did what do you think should be the next step in order to bring peace to the region first of all we need to keep on freezing after keep on freezing we have to get into serious negotiations in order to find a truly trivial solution to the church disputing the list and after having some kind of two states for two nations solution in the land of israel and then we'll be able to say that we really have bring to peace the camp that mr berger

province the game has hit the wrong nerve within twenty four hours it received more than two hundred thousand web hits within a week it was bam the computer game may have been just a small part of a political campaign but the reaction has been nothing but a firestorm of outrage there around five hundred thousand muslims in austria together with the greens their community leaders sued the freedom party emotions in the game and islam is a reality if we want to build mosques we will build the many with i have a vision of the future where every town and city in austria has a mosque with a minaret that people can see from the air it's a in. the judicial authorities up hold the complaint and ruled it again went beyond the perceptible discussion forcing the freedom party to take it down from its website in one of the numbers who played the game show that islam is a very important issue again thanks to us it was talked about in the first place but the judicial system is meddling in politics and stopping a free discussion of many say the ban has had the reverse effect because not even

a single minute in styria and less than two percent of the population of muslim. the freedom party failed to get the single seat of the last election now it's expected to put a dent in the ruling coalition of two centrist party to hear it will be a change in the whole system because i have to feeling it's already beginning to like what they like to this position themselves as like. the resistance of the true option people which is kind of been suppressed by the status quo if the freedom party performs well it will fall in the footsteps of recent successes by far right parties in sweden belgium and the netherlands. it appears that no longer can the centrist parties ignore the voices of those alone by islam and immigration or they risk being penalized at the ballot box. party gratz steria.

terry killings things run by america's intelligence agency have now taken the u.s. led war beyond all at least those are the claims that a new book called the bombers was by veteran journalist bob woodward woodward says the secret army of some three thousand afghan fighters said to hunt al qaeda and the taliban now in full trying to pakistan the revelation comes amid another book accountable or pentagon officials destroyed thousands of copies of an army reservist memoir about fighting in afghanistan everything is revealed military secrets. cassy from the think tank project for pakistan of the twenty first century says the death squads may become a major source of problems for both afghanistan and pakistan. but the united states continues to rely on warlords in afghanistan when when i heard about the mercenary force of three thousand well trained of guns i still there's one part of the story that is still missing and that is where these three thousand of gun
5:17 pm
volunteers for this mercenary army came from and i have no doubt about the answer to this question and that is they came and they were recommended by some of the warlords and these warlords are really milking the u.s. government and the u.s. military they're making a lot of money and of course we all know the story of what happened in toto back in november and in december two thousand and one when it was some of bin laden actually escaped from total vote of thanks actually to the very allies of the u.s. military the of gone warlords who some of them according to reports took money and let many almost one thousand al qaeda fighters really scape and this confirms actually that we will have problems about these militias and these mercenaries getting out of control at some point in the future. but as well as the voting in parliamentary elections being seen as a crunch test for the ruling policy of president hugo chavez out of boycotting the previous poll in two thousand and five position is trying to win back seat to
5:18 pm
change the country's political course away from the left around two hundred fifty thousand police would a poor way to cross the country ahead of voting with a seventy percent electoral turn up predicted hundreds of easy out that support the result would hinge on who emerges victorious from the showdown between the country's rich and poor. it's an outstanding view from the top of one of the finest hotels in caracas venezuela. but on the ground there is a different reality a class war between the wealthy and the poor a battle that has been playing out here in venezuela since president chavez came to power in one thousand nine hundred eight it happened in almost every election and this one is no exception. it is what has politically mobilized both sides of the class divides leading to scenes as distinct as day.
5:19 pm
and night. for the people of venezuela are calling one of the most important election this year what stake here is that building the national assembly whoever gave the majority of the national assembly will have the authority to pass the laws in this country. and so the birds build into the shade tree both for and against the chavez system the system we have right now but it's not. working for poor people that's why people love chavez because we can go to the neighborhood today we have free education we have preferred before chavez came to power and the poor were marginalized in venezuela according to statistics from the venezuelan national statistic. office poverty in this country has dropped by seventy percent in only fourteen years that's a bit us women before chavez it was like a long night the poor were excluded from the country's wealth this represents our aspirations for freedom and emancipation because chavez sees people as human beings
5:20 pm
he fights for us but the opposition has different views also look at how it truly is not just destroyed venezuela has destroyed latin america has destroyed our values as citizens he has brought out the worst of us so if the worst means foreign money to help their cause it's not sitting well with most of the venezuelan people and government newspapers articles exposing hefty figures from u.s. government funded n.g.o.s are causing venezuelans to cry foul in this election and sustain the money is going directly to opposition forces to states make whatever they want not around the world and nobody said nothing so they are angry because we are saying something about that. that however the opposition refuses to acknowledge there is a link between dollars pouring into this country and their campaigns are going to get rid of chavez through votes in the market that's why we're going to vote on september twenty sixth against chavez a socialist communist project twenty first century socialism hasn't helped us it
5:21 pm
has hurt us but we post chavez elements also insist the opposition is composed of the wealthy elite with a prejudice towards majority poor. i hate discrimination and that is what the opposition that's white people don't trust and they discriminate good like they were there the whites over here the indians over there i am white powerful you know no no no from day to night both sides are behind two different messages. one calling for a balance in a parliament dominated by the governments parties and a more capitalist system. the other praising the political structure currently in place one with the socialist agenda because depending on which way the pendulum swings in this election the governing system of venice while a will ultimately follow john huff is r.t. could arcus venezuela. we have lots more coming up on the program for you including . the streets of russia. made
5:22 pm
a pair of the late brother one month ago. took the pen down from the for the walk not run russian roulette with it. now u.s. census figures show america's poverty level is that it's highest for a hundred years wars in iraq and afghanistan along with the turmoil of the financial crisis blamed for the grim statistic resident asks people on the streets of new york how bad they think the situation really is. the u.s. census bureau released a report indicating that about forty four million americans or one in seven live below the poverty level that's the highest it's been in over half of that injury what or who's to blame for this this week let's talk about that is that the prising
5:23 pm
not consider in obama's policy you know the pinkies the blame for where we're at right now well he's partially to blame he's put the whole country and. so how are we going to get out of it. get rid of obama money we are fighting two wars and i think they are costing a lot of money so obviously that's having a significant effect on the economy and obama inherited these wars so i don't think we can blame him i've lost faith in the government i think it's just a power struggle in washington now that's what i think it's kind of like everyone saying what they're supposed to be saying for their party but no one's concerned about doing anything that's one way of putting it i suppose i would say the mortgage mortgage dilemma. loaning money that we don't have to people that can afford it to begin with and i think that was the beginning of it do you think that's going to turn around any time soon are we going to just see more. i hope i hope it turns around i think it's i think it's on the upswing there would be no middle class just poverty class and the rich class that would have you tube it is
5:24 pm
so you think that the middle class is kind of disappearing in this country i think it's definitely it's definitely. not so much disappearing but it's definitely not as big as it as it used to be i mean you know growing up my parents always said that the middle class was a lot bigger and times were a lot easier like a lot of people tend to react and take a lot of things for granted. well those things that we really have and you know we have a lot more than several other countries in the world i'm just going to get complacent that things we're going to debate we should focus and what we do have instead of what we don't have a now so. the bottom line is that no matter. who or what is to blame for this high level of poverty let's just hope someone or something can do something about it. cost north american made it safely back on saturday after a technical glitch in orbit threaten their return the crew currently in
