2:02 pm
of a great but once a commitment from his well that this kind of violence will not happen again the israeli defense minister would rock has said that he would grant the date of your keyboard of gods who were killed in the latest state of violence he also says he had ordered an immediate investigation this is just part of the bigger picture we keep tensions on the ground intensifying quicky at least fifteen palestinians have been killed in the past few days dozens have been injured and while today alone some fifty grad and some rockets rained down on southern israel dozens of israeli citizens has been injured so a lot of concerns here in the region that this is going to eighteenth and will continue just intensifies activists have thought of gathering here in tel aviv and in and out of why it will stick around as well they believe that the government was hosting and is hoping that this if elation and violence to detract attention away from social economic problems at home that's almost given up to the soft spoken she
2:03 pm
says of the exact opposite is going to happen in fact the plan tonight is that demonstrations will be holding candles and they'll be marching in fine and if recognition as a memory of the people of both sides who have been killed in the last few days of violence we do know that the middle east quartet has issued a statement while it condemns the attack on to say that sucks its initial state as i did and that was an attack at least some eight israeli citizens killed it is also called on israel to stop attacks on the gaza strip with a call to say that the cairo also needs to take responsibility to step up if it's in the sinai peninsula that's to cry and bring the security situation there under control the arab league is also meeting tomorrow to discuss this is certainly a lot of internet. national interest and a lot of international pressure in terms of what is happening here and it's going into more afraid that israeli government is going to use this native state of mind and argue that they shouldn't be recognition of a palestinian state which is on the cards for next month in new york in the israeli
2:04 pm
foreign minister avigdor lieberman who that the palestinians are not serious about peace now has been responded to with the word madness by palestinian leaders k.k. that it feeds into a particular point of view that israel is trying to fly and gannett international support not to see the palestinians clear that they come from. these correspond paula slee a very well israeli journalist told me that if the crisis to do some israel launches an offensive on guards there it might face domestic resistance as young people there are reluctant to fight for the government. i think that the next week is going to be an incredibly important dramatic and almost volatile week in this region especially in terms of the indian ocean if the demonstrations in the west bank get out of hand or get very violent i think there will be a reserve call up in israel which will directly affect the constituents of the
2:05 pm
temperature's keep in mind that most of the people protesting for social justice in the streets of tel aviv and jerusalem are of age to go into the reserves and so if there is a call up for either a ground invasion into gaza or any sort of outbreak of violence in the west bank he will be the ten protesters and they will have to ask serious questions about whether or not they're going to fight for a government that has so far ignored their demand for for economic reallocation inside of israeli society. because we value your opinion on events in the middle east go to our website there you can cast your vote on the reasons behind israel's attacks in gaza at the moment if you voted so far we have not told the last hour seems hard to believe that the latest attacks are a way to sabotage the next months of u.n. votes on palestinian statehood that so the votes are piling out there on your chart nineteen percent to be thinking that the attacks are an act of defense and that israel simply wants to protect his own people and again as you can see that twenty seven percent say it's not that you need to provoke a response from the palestinians minority in just four percent this think that
2:06 pm
israel's trying to divert attention from its domestic problems you could make that change that is know what you think is good to hear from you and r.t. dot com tonight. saying in the middle east the russian delegations arrived in syria to assess the situation on the ground there with reports of dozens of new deaths during the latest spate of anti-government protests first despite president assad's claims that army operations against civilians have ended the international pressure on the syrian leaders mounting to despite moscow's refusal to put us into mandibular side stepped down u.s. imposed fresh seven hundred. sanctions would be you preparing more penalties target countries also unlisted denselow told to such views a moves now could prove decisive. the americans have been very clear they know their influence and ability to change syria behavior is limited they've always said it had to reach out to countries closer to syria and russia is one such country and
2:07 pm
a very important country at that so i think the americans are now in europe in specially really have to work hard to persuade the russians they are right on syria and russia is currently running for that is the next important step i think we should focus on one particular element which is really important to go in the way serious oil exports of the present about ninety percent or so serious oil is exported to europe so the europeans are now come out you know united front against assad does that mean they will no longer accept syrian oil now syrian oil makes up some a quarter of syria's hard currency budget so could have a huge amount of an impact on the assad regime its ability to control things so ultimately i do think there is more than rhetoric to what the u.s. and europeans are saying right now and. still to come this hour on c marking history is twenty years since the tenth over from the chaff of the soviet union government was forty second of our special series of reports coming up if you just . next the world stock markets have plummeted amid signs of a possible u.s.

recession and renewed worries over the health of europe's banks investor confidence has been dealt a severe blow and it sparked a massive sell off at the end of last week as artie's report now explains global economic fears continue to build. investors around the world may have very little to celebrate this weekend as u.s. stocks and major european share markets closed down on friday of course this capping the turmoil and volatility that continues to be seen in the european economy in the u.s. economy at least being seen for the past few weeks this does not help ease the lack of confidence interest and lack of trust that is taking place among analysts and investors keeping their eye on the global economy and j.p. morgan chase morgan stanley goldman sachs are among the three banks that came out with reports we're wising their predictions for u.s.
2:09 pm
and global economic growth they cut those predictions morgan stanley even saying that the global economy is hovering close to a recession and also not helping the circumstances recent reports indicating that the u.s. economy is not doing as well as anticipated manufacturing is that its lowest point since two thousand and nine the housing market is still experiencing a huge slump unemployment is spiraling here in the u.s. more than fourteen million americans are unemployed investors are also very concerned about how european leaders are handling the debt crisis in europe the fact of what it's doing to the euro zone many believe that the right decisions are not being made and not being made quick enough clearly this is an indication that three years after the financial collapse that started here in new york wall street in fact the rest of the world clearly that crisis continues to be having
2:10 pm
a huge impact on the lives of people all around the world those people that were promised that three years later the economy would be doing much better and now all these. he said that there are a lot of struggles taking place and it's not quite clear if any leader of any country knows how to handle this problem to stop all the volatility and turmoil and to bring confidence to investors. what is going to put new york for us well indeed fears over repeat of the financial crisis of two thousand and eight or spreading global panic talk to jason johnson's a professor of political science he said he thinks we might see a recession in the u.s. if investors aren't reassured companies that have lost your the last two days are these companies aren't magically not working anymore it's just the people's confidence is at an all time low so it confidence stays low we will see another
2:11 pm
recession of confidence improves the economy will be gone probably that is when someone actually wants to call it or most of us right now is on by china china is not about to reclaim the state or region you're not about to reclaim new york city by calling in their debts primarily want to see america so just leasing from the past united states if the president can really control and there's still some confidence in our future economy. people's inertia and inability right now to get the economy moving right now it looks like the chances of barack obama getting real like there actually are still better than fifty percent which would lean left markets that are concerned with investing right now they're going to feel more confident if it looks like obama's chances of being real like that are slim everyone's going to get more nervous because you know no idea when you're ministration might get out. of the term of markets so just of course affect traders with private investments and pension funds on the line it affects all of us and our very own residents in new york people there they're protecting their savings right
