violation of international law. that cannot or will not give up there are twelve members of european and other national parliaments among the free gaza activists and they're trying to pull strings to force their governments to try and influence greece's decision to block their ships in their harbors are lawyers for the freedom flotilla are saying the greek government's actions are unlawful because the ships cannot be prohibited from going to gaza and they should not be restrained from freely we've in the harbors i have seen every part of the ship i'm on and there are no weapons or anything that could be used as weapons the people who participated in the free gaza flotilla are harmless most are elderly many over sixty and even seventy well let's put has been dubbed the freedom to tell it to and it's been in the planning for at least two years since that first fertility and last year that came at the end of may and it ended in disaster with nine turkish citizens being killed on board one of the ships not activists or pains to prevent this from
happening again they've made a point of saying that their whole attempt to bring humanitarian supplies to gaza is a non violent mission at the same time the israeli authorities have been a pains to also try and prevent this from happening after this long the world has been accusing the united states and israel of putting pressure on athens particularly when it's seeking economic balance we spoke to one such activist adam shapiro is you know is really you know already expecting that. we you we know we. prime minister netanyahu comments yesterday where he thanked. him minister properly for basically doing israel's work for it and what we know behind the scenes that israel has been putting as well as the united states has been putting a ton of pressure on the greek government the greek government is in a very weak position because of its economic problems a popular government and. it can turn the previous such pressure and we believe although we don't have concrete evidence of it we do believe that both the
united states and israel are putting economic pressure on greece as well the activists themselves are in a number of different positions some of them are out at sea some of them have already be wasted and all being detained we are hearing that they do plan and number of the large demonstrations in athens to call on the greek government to explain to give him a just an explanation as to why does the brain to these ships from sailing we've also been hearing reports of sabotage there were ports at an irish missile that at this moment is intent to seize was sabotaged by israeli divers who worked on the ground to prevent their engines from working obvious way the foreign ministry today saturday denied those charges it called them ridiculous and paranoid but certainly the activists are facing an uphill battle in trying to get this fertility going. and if you want to know more freedom there's more exclusive coverage for you online on our website. you'll find

and afghanistan however the military contributor says he actually hoped netra the taliban in the thrust me. for our generation of the cold warriors on the both sides in the united states and in russian federation it is robert gates the outgoing secretary of defense who personalizes the cold war at its peak robert gates was anything but controversial and he has garnered full respect all across the board during his valedictory exit tour from of ghana stand all across europe and back to the united states robert gates displayed unbelievable specter of sincerity and candor providing he's honest and unvarnished assessment of the united states strategic overreach all across the globe and somehow i have a hunch that in his upcoming memoirs robert gates will explain his one
unfinished dream that is to finish the job keith initiated in his previous capacity as they see a chief when he opened up at the pound or a box of extremism in pakistan and in afghanistan only to be called back to duty almost thirty years later to eradicate which he's so carefully rared and groomed in his previous capacity as the cia chief. social media has brought about a communications revolution and has also helped spark revolutions to bring as a tool to avoid government censorship and organize protest in the arab world this law but everyone i find out his own resident reporter a new york if the sidewalks tell us what people that think.
in today's social media driven world you can post whatever hate speech doctored photos or other nonsense you want with virtually no consequences how do you feel about that defining our times this week let's talk about that i was as stalking a guy on facebook once and by mistake instead of rising his name into the search i put as my status was all could i knew got me these things very quickly adding everybody to see did you learn your lesson yet people just put anything on their young girls young kids you know home addresses and everything like i got a nice. open opposite. people see what you show them not what you actually are in my experience and if you put something on the internet people will watch and think that that's actually your life you know when when people could be sitting at home doing nothing for a whole weekend they might just make things up just to make themselves more interesting a lot of people tend toward being snotty or rude and they've been taught through
television and other media that that that's the new cool yet there's a shift in our culture going on but that'll change as people start to understand that they end result of that is isolate you isolate yourself when you do that kind of stuff we need to be center of attention. as the world just become a giant high school yeah i would say yes we are all just a big giant but we owe a high school we all hated it so why do we want to live it every day that's a good question that's a good question and it's almost even in the more middle school that sort of mean girl kind of being. and i think even adults which is. do you think that as we grow as a society people will get smarter about what's opposed or will it just get worse and worse i think people always be people you're going to have people that are smart you can have people that are not and i think that always be fruitcakes that put things on me that is just unhelpful. regardless of how you feel about the
pitfalls of social media the bottom line is it's probably going to get a lot worse before it gets better if it ever. all wrestling as a sport charity associated with beefy man but he rushes corpuses the one enough flexing their muscles to what he's already in a question or has been getting to grips with some of them determined to become international stars. there is little clue as to why this quiet corner flusher in the north caucasus hide such a powerful secret because his hand that we find perhaps some of the strongest women in the country but they're hoping their arm wrestling talents will one day be shared with the world in the olympic arena. i've been the glue sole of a began wrestling in one thousand nine hundred ninety four but now she's clearly a super woman with town world and fourteen year old gold medals born in
a small village in the mountains she says that she has achieved everything she wished for and now it's time for a younger generation to follow in her winning footsteps i've been his biggest concern though is that the sport doesn't get the recognition she feels it deserves sometimes we simply don't have money to go to the championships after training so hard young girls are losing the stimulus to continue when they hear that there is no chance for them to go unless they collect the money themselves one thing that might change that would be the support was made part of their limpy games bringing more attention and finance. same competitive organize matches began in california in nineteen fifty two and soon gained real popularity arm wrestling as one of the most peaceful converts of sport that actually doesn't require any special equipment and people of all ages have a real chance of winning if i did something quite simple there are. times. that
anyone has a chance of winning right now i'm going to check it for myself. oh it's certain to be easy time. standing hours of the gym i've been as trainee louisa as she doesn't know if she'll ever have enough money to go to the championships but she never loses hope. maybe it is an incorrect comparison but sport is like a swamp for me once you get into there's simply no turning back i try to stop but i can't live without it and there will continue hoping that one day we will be recognized by the public. it seems like ok jand women are following hard on the successful heels of their man who take many of the world's models in almost all types of wrestling and with girls' hair seemingly determined to break the stereotypes we could soon see more and more high heels making their way into the wrestling arenas. the republic of north the sasha.
later in the program another set of women. at the african that maria hsia for a village defined by a comparable screen still remains a symbol of success the generation of young despite our final defeat. while the fat if that international film festival in moscow has counted dramatic quantities with the winner of the best film being announced and our correspondent peter all of a was that the ceremony. this year's winner of the coveted golden george award is the movie. the waves directed by alberto maya's it's a spotless movie the second year in a row that a spanish language movie has won the top prize here at the moscow international film festival last year it was the turn of a man or sold brothers this year though it's gone to the waves a movie set in the case against the backdrop of the spanish civil war it's not the only prize not movies picks up carlos out of it is also taken the best actor price
at this year's festival so two awards going to the spanish movie the waves the top prize for best film and also the best actor prize now there's also been plenty of other awards up for grabs in one person who's picked up one of those awards isn't a stranger to collecting gongs she's already got four buff does three golden globes for emmys amongst others including an academy award for best actress dame helen mirren the british actress has picked up the stanislav ski award for acting excellence i mean mentally on it you know the name shanna saskia obviously to our costs are sacked is enormous and for the united states it possible really to say how important standard task is now not just for here to acting obviously that was where his influence started but that then went on to film acting a whole host of celebrities plenty of russian celebrities from stage screen and the
world of sports as well as business and politics be represented here but also a whole host of international stars now i met up with. the director of the movie which is closing out the ceremony the espionage thrill at the desk which dame helen mirren actually stars. the director john martin no you may know him from his movie shakespeare in love as well as captain corelli's mandolin he was. due to soak up the atmosphere for the first time you're saying at the moscow film festival and also an absolute whole host of other people and the mcdowell had a few interest. in comments to make about the the green carpet of course the color for the cup at these type of events usually read we must go to a festival going to green she was saying it's caused some problems when it comes to picking up perfect outfits i had a wonderful stylist that lives here in russia helped me pick out the drafts and she brought me many dresses to choose from and i particularly liked this one because it
was like a piece of sculpture and it fit me perfect so i was happy to have it and she was a lovely lovely lady well it's not just on the macdonald of course it had problems picking out what she was going to wear i agonized for hours and hours this morning about what i was going to put on to make sure i looked right for this i'm sure you can tell. now russian tennis star in the area may know how while. but she's still remains an inspiration for many players worldwide she won the tournament when she was just seventeen since well her striking looks as well as her act of athleticism have won her fame both on and off the court battles told battle has been trying to find a secret to have success. with the russians call it big tennis to distinguish it from ping pong much to the amusement of foreigners but now russia's racket wielding darling has made it to the
biggest tennis tournament of the move since her winning wimbledon in two thousand and four maria mania has turned into a star off the court as well. peaches and catwalks she's joined the hall of fame jaw dropping russian tennis we know but she only wants to talk about the tense i told myself to just take it one point at a time and really focus and then i thought good discussion i got in my zone so we went down to one of moscow's toughest young tennis tournaments the club here claims to be the home of tomorrow's players so what do these young russians think of their compatriots example. i think she's very positive and not everyone could have such patients patience is very important in tennis because if i've always liked her even when i was very young i started playing because i wanted to be like her and now people are telling me i'm playing like her but i have no idea what i find very
strong inspiration from her i really like the way she plays she has very good technique she always fights until the end they never gives up one thing nobody can ignore about shut up over. that grant or scream or whatever it is we decided to sample some of russia's future grunting talent can make him. piet. there. because one of the stars this club has turned out this catarina. she was ranked eighty under eighteen rankings but she finished her career in russia actually wrath of those being in america so she was seven doesn't that lessen her inspirational appeal oh she's so russian she is a russian orthodox do you need to. talk to you working harder i might have to put
in a few more hours myself. ok so i probably couldn't even beat these kids for the game of tennis but that's because they're out here every day practicing driven home by heroes like maria sharapova well maybe because they haven't mastered the all important. and you can check out more news a and eye catching videos on our website called like read for the fifteenth exotic car show in moscow where where down the wacky meets the fog the stunt pier is at the annual no train event which has opened its doors to the public and. else on line a bengal tiger cub abandoned by his own mother has become a main attraction at a russian zoo know how even with his own twitter page. and her shortly world press photo when gertie bieber reveals the secrets of her success in
