figures and trying to name every single person killed by the cia's use of drones in waziristan we've been recording the strikes and recording the number of people killed and now we want to move on to a new phase of the project to start recording the names of the dead this is to help bring transparency to the public debate about the use of drones in pakistan but also more generally to bring return the people see manatees to return to flight with their people what made the statistics already the project has the names of two hundred ninety five innocent victims among them ninety five children there's a fundamental problem with the whole strategy of of using drugs almost inevitably these kind of remote controlled killing these guns in trees the number of civilian casualties it has a tendency to towards indiscriminate assassinations there's a kind of there's a kind of

3:21 am
as far as we're aware the united states government is the only country this is drawing outside of that. we believe that we should bring transparency to those actions so that the public in the face of america so the merits of humanizing the innocent dead could be the first step towards opening up that debate remembering that civilian victims on names not numbers. artsy london. staying with mike is done and at least six people have been killed and to two more wounded in a bomb blast in the city of explosion near a police station and several nearby shops and to vehicle this early in the day true separate blasts went off in the cities of lahore and password for nearly one and wounding thirteen are those no group has yet claimed. workers led by democrats senator mentioned pelosi hit the streets of washington to share their anger over the ongoing governmental shutdown they demanded the senate

3:23 am
a soldier to fight for his or her country but for the few hundred all too often docs israeli soldiers the fight is on two fronts they're also coming under fire from within their own hasidic communities for serving in the israeli defense forces in the hardcore religious neighborhoods the graffiti born villagers soldiers that if you made it here in the wrong place it was even a flyer distributed saying that to kill an ultra-orthodox soldier is a blessing the soldier once his face blurred because he fears reprisals myself explodes and. those committees were. of twenty you can see them were surrounding reno sheltering. preparing grace for you and your friends in the toilets or. the harassment is gaining momentum is now even a phone hotline that's been set up so people can snitch on those they know are serving or they've seen in uniform it's gotten so bad that ultra-orthodox soldiers say they now ship the uniforms before coming home in these religious neighborhoods
3:24 am
today is room for only one type of uniform the traditional black and white god worn by hard line observers those of from the wife who was reading this call in uniform in jerusalem and they stopped us called sweets and. and then run away the problem is that most ultra orthodox jews believe the army is an unholy place many also refuse to recognize israel as they say they cannot be a jewish state until the messiah comes and so fighting for the one via the other oversteps the boundaries of what's acceptable so basically of her in a community is a conflict between how to relate to. that to the country and to the secular people in the country and they see those soldiers from going into the army and that later integrating into the society a something that's important in pulsing into their way of living for sixty five
3:25 am
years the ultra-orthodox who make up about eighty percent of israel's eighty million citizens have largely been out to skip compulsory military service to pursue their religious studies but the government is now decided enough is enough and the cabinet has approved a plan to gradually end automatic draft exemptions but religious leaders are warning if the law passes it will be a dick aeration of war because. the issue is very simple the state is trying to turn the ultra-orthodox into becoming more secular they say it openly they want to . incorporated into israeli society and remove us from what they call our ghettos we see that as a war on our way of life on our religion we feel persecuted for the small number who do serve in the army they've been branded as collaborators and sellouts but the assaults don't bother david he's encouraging other ultra religious soldiers to follow in his footsteps after weighty serving a year and a half in combat he's about to be enlisted to become

3:27 am
rattling rolling israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu declared in front of the un that iran is building nuclear weapons that could hit new york in three to four years no he said new york obviously he is trying to spook a certain country with nuclear destruction the delegates from namibia were probably unmoved sadly this time netanyahu failed to bring a funny cartoon bomb picture with him like in his two thousand and twelve un speech in which he also warned the world about the threat of a nuclear iran you know i might be more optimistic about israel accusing other countries of being nuclear threats if they had a better track record themselves although israel is a bit candid with their arsenal according to a b.b.c. article the federation of american scientists believes that israel's arsenal has grown to about two hundred nukes based on their surveillance of ever expanding facilities inside the country also let's not forget that israel has plenty of ways to deliver those two hundred nuclear bombs if the need be so my question is why should we automatically trust israel with a lot of nuclear weapons but not iran is it because they're bureaucrats where european suits and shave i don't know it just seems to me that disarmed countries
