good morning from moscow where it's just after eleven am on monday i'm. for this our europe is witnessing a surge in support for far right parties a right wing populists have just swept to power in norway greece's golden dawn is the country's third largest political group and then austria the right wing freedom . almost a quarter of the vote in sunday's general election a short while ago i spoke to. from the. well the big story from sunday's ballot is that the fall right freedom polity in austria picked up almost a quarter of the vote now what that means is that they've really increased the amount. of their popularity here in the country they. campaigned this time on
a not just an immigration policy but also on a policy on a very much a euro skeptic campaign and that seen them will draw in the voters from by the by the sackful not just those though also of the euro skeptic parties will be in the in the parliament here in austria and this is something that we're seeing not only here in austria but we've seen in norway where there the government there came to power on well very strong immigration policy saying that they would put limits on immigration there in sweden week earlier this year we saw riots in the the be reachin of stockholm that seen a rise. in support for right wing governments in that country also denmark where the they have the right wing party they're the they're the the danish people's party all the third party people like money on the pen name fronts in the the french national front they're making a lot of noise and they getting more and more they're being heard more and more by
people all across the continent in all of this is taken against the backdrop of the real extreme right being in the news right now in countries like greece where golden dawn members are being rounded up and arrested so there is there are two sides to the the far right in europe at the moment it seems to be those that are getting elected politically and those that are are rioting in the streets psych and what we're seeing in athens and other cities in greece. are all of a vast and barbara combe from the austrian economics center believes that it's actually because of the anti euro sentiment that a quarter of austrians voted for the far right freedom party. well they don't trust the politicians in brussels any more they don't trust our austrian to the decision makers what they do there they don't believe they find the right solutions i mean after all it's just. a redistribution on the supranational level it's austrian
tax euros that go to other countries and are just washed down the drain i think it just said a couple of politicians thinking and overlook their past solutions that after all it has only prolong the problems this is definitely what the people see and it has not come up to any solutions as a matter of fact that that's grew bigger and bigger and higher so the next generations will suffer and this is what those twenty five percent obviously have in mind thanks for joining us here on r t today dozens of students have been shot dead by islamist militants in one area who stormed a dormitory early on sunday morning and just started killing people the government are believed to be from the terrorist sector. the recently stepped up its attacks on civilians and this latest incident showing the scale of terror engulfing africa come shortly after the deadly shopping mall attack in kenya. johnson the founder of the viewpoint africa website and explain why the continent has become such a hub for terrorist cells. all these groups are all joined together. i'll
shut bob in somalia or the wider m.l.a. in in mali or the more we're joined across west africa these jihadist cells are all only blueprints on the organizational the west has already declared terrorism leads to islam is in islam is in leads to fundamentalism and ultimately muslims when you're dealing with an ideology when you're dealing with a mindset and indicates all these groups they believe they can do no wrong because they think they believe they're getting their blueprint from god so it's not the extent it becomes very difficult to dislodge them over time i think it's a desperation acts by the militants and they've been attacked severely by the nigerian government for several months and i think they've been dented in terms of their own all round operations and this is just an extension of his group to make sure it's already propagated in the past before that it was
a syrian state swat shari'a law and this fight is anything that's worse than that and it does believe that some institutions including education institutions are its target because it's deemed to be worse than. now the groups attacks on educational institutions are embedded in its name itself in fact boko haram commit translated as western education is a sin it is the islamists third attack on a school in nigeria's northeastern state in just four months among other common targets for book of christian communities and of course the churches as well. meantime here on our to the israeli prime minister is on a mission to thwart iran's recent efforts to unfreeze its relations with the west at about benny minute netanyahu he claims that tehran sweet talk is just a trick to try and buy the country's nuclear program more time means vying to prove it in the white house and at the united nations general assembly artie's middle
east correspondent paula now looking at what to expect from the israeli leaders so-called counter offensive the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu is in the united states where he will be meeting with the american president barack obama and also addressing the united nations general assembly the focus of that address and his meetings will be on iran and here the israeli prime minister's message is quite simple don't trust the rain ians netanyahu has ordered his government members not to give comments regarding the recent phone call between the radian and american presidents in fact he's ordered them not to talk at all regarding the whole issue of iran and this is presumably to avoid any kind of embarrassment while natanya who is in the united states and also for israel to seemingly present a united front prior to leaving israel for new york netanyahu said that he was going to use this opportunity at the united nations to show the truth about to rant particularly now while all these plays in trees are being said last week when the
iranian president rouhani addressed the u.n. security council netanyahu criticized that address severely saying that was full of hypocrisy and cynicism at the time he ordered the israeli delegation to boycott the station and warned the international community not to be fooled by signs of so-called moderation by the way in government we will not be fooled by half measures but merely provide a smokescreen for your rants continual pursuit of nuclear weapons. and the world should not be fooled either. understanding the israeli internal security vission bit announced that it had wasted a belgian citizen with a rainy an our region for allegedly spying against israel now the incident happened already three weeks ago but the information has only now been released while netanyahu is in the united states and of course questions are being asked about its timing many are suggesting that it is to store up ammunition for netanyahu his
position at a position that he's going to be putting across in the united states it also kinds at a time when the first time in decades we see a warming in the relationship between the united states and iran now rouhani in his address last week also called for a nuclear free middle east it's highly unlikely that the israelis will ever agree to this israel has never admitted having nuclear weapons but at the same time it has never denied that it does policy r.t. tel aviv. and in the meantime they are notable israeli journalist or that of gideon levy he told us here at r t that it will not be an easy task for netanyahu to persuade the u.s. leader that iran can never be trusted. practically the get is already a long time ago because president obama and prime minister. c. hardly i why. none of the main topics a palestinian question be they running into question in
a tiny l size is any seeing which is less than bomb being iran is not the right solution he would come up with a lot of intelligence material trying to prove that there is no change on the ground in iraq he will try to spoil the party. but in any case i think that we have no two in here diplomacy a chance and give me a chance no doubt the reason basic fundamental change in iran and israel can only benefit out the feet now you can always a step back in time on our website r.t. top com to see how just one year ago and then yahoo drew the wrath of iran with its explosive address the united nations has diagrams of a so called bomb. i was ten minutes past the hour moscow time this is r.t. and a court in bahrain has sentenced fifty muslims to up to fifteen years in prison for
organizing an opposition group it was one of the key backers of the nationwide program for movement authorities claim it's been involved in terrorism here at r.t. we spoke to a doctor not r.j. who spent two months in prison but she believes the trial is a well used tactic of the government. actually it's quite old the propaganda the whole process all of the demonization of the pro-democracy corners and to pro democracy is a quite an old fashioned thing that the the f.r.c. is the bahamian authorities they'd be using for a while and it's not working anymore i mean at this moment they failed absolutely failed to provide any evidence that these groups are involved in any to terror attacks or any more of it take movements two years ago exactly
at the same date same judge he convicted doctors almost fifty doctors for sentencing up to fifteen years it's the same thing the repeating. all right hoping you stay with us here on r.t. because after a very short break we'll be checking out the perilous state of the portuguese economy that's actually bringing people together now we report on the small companies forming in rural areas with people growing their own food and living off the land and. still to come here on the program having a car becomes more of a pain than a pleasure i would look at how british people are choosing to move about in their daily lives and the rest of the world's top headlines in just a. leg

before that but it's one of the it's one of many factors it's definitely propelling cycling which is that we have a massive increase in number of people cycling go up by almost travelled on the main roads doubled in front of us a whole since two thousand and two and a quarter of the traffic in central london in the morning rush hour is now boys we just have to cater for the number of people to the millions all over europe struggling to come by rising fuel prices and increasingly pricey and crowded public transport the pedal power norris made to. and over on our website for this hour right now at r.t. dot com that over the path of the olympic flame styles and make their way by car plane and even to buy a sleigh to bring the torch to sort of the website right now we've got the footage from the lighting ceremony and a map of the actual whereabouts of the iconic symbol of the games.

recently the ministry of internal affairs of russia declared that they're going to drastically increase operations in and around the moscow subway system with a major emphasis on illegal immigration there is an odd paradox when people talk about dealing with illegal immigration in terms of what the police should do people want the police to deal with it but any means of trying to actually do anything are generally taboo any form of asking people to see ideas viewed as an invasion of privacy or racial profiling well i don't know how exactly anyone can prove they are or aren't a citizen without id and if you're looking for people who are forward and thus different then how can you go about looking for illegals without looking for people who are different profiling if you were looking for a criminal of slavic origin in uganda when the police be wrong to stop me due to standing out from the crowd i don't think so that's not racial profiling it is just common sense obviously it is best to fight the causes of illegal immigration rather than asking for id in moscow subways but they have to do something so i guess id checks are here to stay but there's a big difference between looking at someone's passport and doing stop and frisk or
involuntary blood and urine tests that is what immigration control goes over the line but that's just my opinion. more news today. these are the images. from the street. operations are. lead missions three legged cretaceous three per store charges priests arrangements three per priests to type the phrase leadfree blond hair splitting videos for your media
