politicians is also a serious threat. but sometimes we get ringback suckered blood in this on purpose but more dangerous that is a politician's do or don't talk against muslims about islamisation of the weeds in society that is that the more dangerous that a couple of crazy people in christensen i think the most important thing to count when it comes you know how do you hate speech is to talk to each other and create good examples of will muslims that are muslims and look when we talk in our way and this is really important to us as muslims we don't talk about muslims and them not muslims or addition to about us the reason they muslims what we talk about is just society where everybody is part of the bigger us. the head of the organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons a signed an open letter urging his own watchdog to give to whistleblowers a platform at its next conference they claim that the o.p.c. w. suppressed evidence when conducting a probe into an alleged chemical attack on the syrian city of duma in april of 28
4:11 am
but you can see if this morn story. 7th of april 2018 terrible images flood the internet the news people civilians suffocating with symptoms of nerve agent poisoning the alleged aftermath of a chemical attack in syria within a week cruise missiles flying at syria. generally when you launch missiles at someone you know they did something wrong what made these sea incidents so remarkable is that everything happened in reverse 1st they launched the missiles and then investigated who it was that they should have targeted it took a year for the u.p.c. w. to compile a report where they said that they found traces of chlorine with strong indications
4:12 am
that the gas containers were dropped from the air done and done today's o.p.c. w. final report on the 7th of april 2018 attack in duma confirms chemical weapons used demonstrating the vital importance of the o.p.c. w.'s work this confirms chlorine attack was only the latest example of the assad regime's chemical warfare attacks on its own population except it isn't done its own raveling to whistleblowers involved in the investigation and now come forward alleging irregularities and suppression cherry picking of actual findings the 1st contest that the u.p.c. w.'s acetate and that the gas canisters would dropped rather than placed at the scene observations at the scene of the 2 locations suggest that there is a higher probability that both cylinders were manually placed at those 2 locations
4:13 am
rather than being delivered from aircraft the 1st whistle blower was allegedly an al. side contracted the u.p.c. w. said it took into account all findings not just here is the problem is according to the 2nd whistleblower a member of the team which was on the ground the collecting samples is that the u.p.c. w. took into account some findings more than they did others most of the duty and focus he reports on the instant the interim report and the final report was scientifically impoverished procedurally irregular and possibly fraudulent the whistleblower who is identities being kept secret for his safety featured at a high profile conference in brussels and his testimony appears to be much more damning than the 1st whistle blowers professor richard fulk was there at the conference where the whistleblower spoke professor what pushed him to come forward
4:14 am
what was the gist of it well essentially he presented evidence testimonials to be a thing in the room for a new group or it could not be justified in the form that it was submitted and that it had been tempered with such a way to create a set of conclusions that corresponded with what. the u.s. . britain france it would be the outcome of an investigation but the evidence didn't support better remember the rebel videos we talked about with victims showing symptoms of nerve agent poisoning it was most likely staged no nerve agent was found by the u.p.c. w. what they found traces of chlorine the symptoms of chlorine poisoning are different
4:15 am
traces of chlorine is the finding of these chemicals at the allege site is to be used as an. case of the chlorine gas was present in the atmosphere beige least be shown to be present at level significantly higher than what is present in environments already they weren't all that the u.p.c. w. said that that it is chlorinated the organic chemicals which are everywhere all around us in our drinking water the difference is in the event of a chemical attack they would be in a much higher concentration and for whatever reason new p.c. w. didn't say what that concentration was not it was the public not even to their own inspectors but when the analysis of these key levels came back from the laboratories the results were cancer sammy barrick at unison who was the doom a fact finding missions leader against normal expectations they were not passed on to the inspector who was drafting the a.b.c. w.'s interim report on them the inspectors tested the victims the whistleblower
4:16 am
said their blood their head and found nothing no nerve agent no chlorine in levels that would indicate a chemical attack nothing which raises an important question professor then the whistleblower come across as political perhaps with bias none that i could detect and he seemed very much like. international civil servant a technocrat i think this central underlying difficulty was that the evidence of the. gases that were alleged to be used didn't seem to be to occur with what the inspectors found. and that there was a discrepancy between. the information that was contained in that report about these 2 projects that supposedly had evidence of
4:17 am
chlorine being used and the indication. worse place there for. the means that the report describes apparently the management ignored not only the inspectors findings but also their concerns in fact whistleblower claims the inspectors were made to sit through speeches by unidentified american agents who insisted that asaad was guilty that the asaad should be blamed the inspectors left fair weathers office feeling that the invitation to the americans to address them was unacceptable pressure and a violation of the o.p.c. w.'s declared principles of independence and impartiality 2 days later the interim report was released a senior colleague told us 1st floor management says the very p.c. credibility we have to have a smoking gun and look how that turned out u.p.c.
4:18 am
w is coming apart at the seams but let's hold off jumping to conclusions unlike united states and pals are rather wait for our answers and the truth before launching anything at the u.p.c. w. or a gas if they're going to take a quick break we're back with more news in tim. the world is driven by shaped.
4:19 am
thing. we dare to ask. temperance to impeach and remove donald trump from the presidency have clearly divided the country this should not surprise anyone trump is probably the most divisive public figure of our time however all this division over a single person is changing and even damaging institutions is impeachment being normal. again welcome back now the us business magazine forbes has published an article claiming that russia's economy is now bullet proof and size to the fact that the
4:20 am
country has little debt and could pay it off with its central bank reserves russia has over $541000000000.00 u.s. dollars in foreign currency reserves and the largest gold reserves among emerging markets what's more russian bonds have also become increasingly attractive paying conservative more than interest on interest than u.s. treasuries for example so let's get the thoughts now of businessmen and financial commentator to jim rogers good to have you on again jim good afternoon she what do you make of this comment then by forbes that russia's economy is bullet proof. well andrew i'm delighted to hear this for 3 or 4 years now and i've been investing in russian bonds and russian shares exactly for those reasons russia's got very little debt russia has bass resources i'm delighted to hear people up on the catching up why is it so important that the recent little debt because when you look around the world many major economies have a lot of debt some people might just
4:21 am
a shilling well that's like a then if you look at american you know supposedly that's growing well but that has a lot of debt so why is it so important that russia has got so little america's the largest debtor nation in the history of the world andrew it's important for russia booker's many investors are suspicious of russia they don't know much about russia russia gets bad press from the american government as you know and some other governments so all of the things that you can bring out that are positive for russia and low debt is a very strong positive in 2019 since so many major countries have huge debts it's also positive and it's all great for russia and maybe people will start listening you mentioned that the russian economy stable but that doesn't necessarily mean that it will grow well yes russia has a lot of things going for you know about the oil or it's not going to get worse
4:22 am
it's making a bomb now so that is not certainly not a negative anymore russia has that group called you know russian agriculture is booming because of the sanctions every day russian farmers they thank you mr trump thank you mr trump because russia and i can quote here is booming russia has many thanks to the rest of the world overall and i know people are painting a positive picture of the russian economy but you know i tried to do some research before talking to you and also one think of it said the russian economy was expected to grow perhaps by one percent you know over the next year old saying it doesn't sound an awful lot. no it's not but it's better than many other countries because many other countries are suffering even worse but andrew the main thing years that russia is growing and that russia has great assets and that people should now look at russia as a place to invest you know andrew what about the left years russia's been hated by the investment community and now the. international investment community will start
4:23 am
to look at it and see that it's not bad there are lots of good things going on including growth which is not best in the world but it's certainly better than many other people and people often do you focus on russia's bad relations with the west but we shouldn't forget it's good relations with the east that have happened over the last few years to particularly with china what are your thoughts on that and how much could that fuel russian growth well i just want to add to that russia is very cheap compared to many other markets even though it's not growing very rapidly it is growing better than others and it's very cheap but andrew you bring up a very important thing you know 5 years ago when i would go to moscow airport there was nobody there now that's full of chinese you go to red square it's full of chinese mr trump and the west are pushing the russians and the chinese together and that's not going to be good for the west is going to be great for china great for
4:24 am
russia and that's another reason that people should look to think about investing in russia jim look always nice to talk she going to have to leave it there that was jim rogers businessman and financial commentator thank you thank you andrew. and the u.s. is in once that next year it will only acquire works by female artists the movie is meant to mark the 100th anniversary of women getting the right to vote in the u.s. museum's director says it will also shift the institution's identity you don't just purchased one painting by female artist of color and hang it on the wall next to a painting by mark rothko to rectify centuries so if imbalance you have to do something radical. the baltimore museum of art will also feature works exclusively by women in 19 if it's $21.00 exhibitions and also include at least one transgender artist we discussed the issue with the leader of the british political party justice for men and boys and also with the women's rights activists. museum is
4:25 am
actually to affirmative action to to write a historical wrong which has been. excluding basically women from from the arts world and i fully support their their choice all too often in recent years i've seen some bizarre works and they are painfully poor and you know very often it must be by a woman because it's been put in the. 2 to satisfy some gender quota but you know the public knows good fine arts from poor arts i think my counterpart is not really understanding the argument the argument is the fact that. we men have never big given our very well the arts and it's important to give access to art to all general to all genders in general like all races etc i did not say women cannot be good artists what i'm saying is that for you that i let most of their work coming
4:26 am
out of the humanities where art please please maria let me finish let please let me finish what i was saying at the top of virtually every i think of every 3 year old . excellence can be measured objectively not subjectively women. almost an represented at the top level i think there's quite a number of reasons behind the one of them it's simple work men men work harder than women we know for but. study published in 2000 in the u.k. but world 4 in 7 british men works only one in 7 british women is work said men and women are different in order to play the meritocracy card you have to have an equal playing field right now. society is not an equal playing field as a lot of studies have shown a statistic prove so you cannot put play the meritocracy card like we have this is an important move and it's an affirmative action to prove to write a historical wrong and you need to give access to people 1st and foremost in order
4:27 am
for people to prove their capital ities this is all about forcing institutions to buy poor or from poor female artists. to be had here. so that's how things are looking so far today more from the top and. join me every thursday on the alec simon show and i'll be speaking to the world of politics or business i'm show business i'll see you then.
