  1. Greek Far-Rightists, Police Clash During Muslim Party March (abcnews, July 24, 2016)

    “About 150 far-right militants have clashed with riot police in the northeastern Greek city of Komotini as they attempted to attack a peaceful march by members of Greece’s Muslim minority.

    The far-rightists threw rocks and chairs at police, who countered with tear gas and stun grenades. No arrests were reported.

    The march, organized by the small Friendship, Equality and Peace Party, was in commemoration of the 21st anniversary of the death of its founder, Achmet Sadik. Sadik was elected as the party’s first, and so far only, member of parliament in 1989 and died in a traffic accident in 1995.

    Most of Greece’s multi-ethnic Muslim minority, which numbers over 100,000 and is concentrated in the northeastern region of Thrace, identifies as Turkish, although Greece officially discourages this self-identification.”

    • You don’t have to be a far-right Greek to give short shrift to marching Turks, however peaceful they may seem to those in the mass media tank. And “Turk” is generic for “Tard”. Doesn’t matter if the local specimens are “multiethnic”. You’re all dhimmis to them.

      Pitiful to watch deracinated Greek leftists marching with the horde through the streets of Greek towns. Do they know what happens to collaborators?

      At this very moment there are churches burning in Turkey.

  2. Iran Confirms Iranian-American Has Been Detained (abcnews, July 24, 2016)

    “Iran’s judiciary has confirmed the detention of an Iranian-American who was visiting family in Iran, the country’s semi-official ISNA news agency reported Sunday.

    The report did not name the Iranian-American involved or say when he was arrested. It quoted the spokesman for the judiciary, Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejehi, as saying that the man was arrested in the city of Gorgan on unknown charges and then referred to the Iranian capital for investigation.

    On Thursday the U.S. State Department said it was looking into reports that Iranian-American Robin Shahini has been detained in Iran…”

  3. Intense Airstrikes in Syria’s Aleppo Province Hit 5 Clinics (abcnews, July 24, 2016)

    “Government air raids struck at least five medical facilities in the northern province of Aleppo, where violence has intensified in recent weeks amid a siege by government forces, Syrian opposition activists said Sunday.

    The activists said the air raids began late Saturday night and continued until after midnight, killing at least five people across the city, including an infant.

    The International Committee of the Red Cross tweeted after reports of the air raids on the provincial capital of Aleppo and the nearby town of Atareb: “Harrowing news: More hospitals hit in #Aleppo this morning. Civilians and hospitals are #notatarget.”

    Rival sides in Syria’s five-year conflict have targeted hospitals and clinics in the past, mostly in the country’s north…”

  4. Ankara mayor suggests Gülen uses genies to ‘enslave people’ (hurryiet, July 24, 2016)

    “Ankara Mayor Melih Gökçek has suggested that U.S.-based Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen uses genies to “enslave” people, speaking after the July 15 failed coup attempt, which the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) says the “Fethullahist Terrorist Organization (FETÖ)” was behind.

    “How can Fethullah Gülen control such a large number of people? What makes him different?” the host of a TV show on private broadcaster CNN Türk asked Gökçek, to which the Ankara mayor replied that Gülen used “genies.”

    “This may sound funny to you, but he does it with a strange method. He does it with the ‘three-lettered things.’ Everyone now can debate this. He enslaves people with the ‘three-lettered things,’” Gökçek said, using a Turkish phrase to refer to the word “genie.”

    “It’s obvious that a lot people have been enslaved in previous times and then were saved. He has the ability to do this too. People have become mesmerized and enslaved,” the Ankara mayor added.”

  5. TURKEY – Huge fire breaks out near NATO base in Turkey /strong>

    A massive fire has erupted near a NATO base in the Buca district of Izmir province in western Turkey. Authorities are investigating a possible act of sabotage, local media report.

    The inferno started on Sunday evening on the border of the Sahintepe and Mevkiinde districts. The fire engulfed the grassy wooded area and is spreading closer to NATO’s military base because of strong winds.

    According to CNN Turk, the fire is threatening a number of populated areas, and has already affected a home for the elderly and its adjacent garden.

    Despite intense efforts by NATO stationed troops to stop the fire, the rapidly spreading flames are moving closer to the arsenal, T24 News reports. The channel also reports that a possible “sabotage” is suspected.

    The fire is threatening the Allied Land Command (LANDCOM) base at Sirinyer (Buca) in ?zmir, Turkey. LANDCOM is charged with improving the effectiveness and reaction time of the alliance’s land forces that when needed could respond to an international crisis.

    “Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) fighters disguised as women were reportedly caught by opposition forces while attempting to flee Manbij, Syria. It came after the terrorist group was given 48 hours to leave the strategic city.

    The men, dressed in full black veils, attempted to blend in with civilians fleeing the northern city, after coalition forces issued an order to leave Manbij within two days.

    Footage of the three men was published online by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) on Thursday, which consists of predominantly Kurdish fighters…”

  8. Erdogan Hints at Executing 13,000, Exits European Human Rights Convention (sputniknews, July 24, 2016)

    “Turkish authorities have arrested more than 13,000 people believed to be tied to the coup attempt and have gutted the country’s civil services sector suspending over 60,000 educators, judges and police.

    “‘Why should I keep them and feed them in prisons for years to come?’ – that’s what the people say,” said Erdogan. “The people now have the idea, after so many terrorist incidents, that these terrorists should be killed, that’s where they are, they don’t see any other outcome to it.”

    In the wake of the coup, the Erdogan government immediately withdrew from the jurisdiction of the European Court of Human Rights, which bans executions, raising the likelihood of mass executions.

    Erdogan’s Turkey now finds itself in a state of disrepair in the wake of a failed coup attempt that left at least 246 dead and more than 2,000 injured as the country’s president called his people to go into the streets and clash with the military forces attempting to overthrow the government. The coup forces, which labelled themselves a Peace Council, opened fire on civilians with helicopters, tanks, and automatic rifles.

    Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said on Saturday authorities had imprisoned over 13,000 people on accusations of treason, including 8,831 soldiers and 2,745 judges – 36% of the entire Turkish judiciary…”

  11. And we are still being told that it is India who is committing war crimes in Kashmir…

    Pakistan: After Hafiz Saeed’s call, 40 hardline political parties to collect funds for jihad in Kashmir today

    Supporters of more than 40 political parties and hard-line religious groups, some of them proscribed for terror activities, will stage a march starting from Lahore to the capital city of Islamabad in Pakistan to show solidarity over the growing unrest in Kashmir in India. The rally will pledge support from the Pakistani establishment for the ‘liberation of Kashmir’ in India. Pakistan has declared July 19 as Kashmir Solidarity Day.

    Tehreek e Azaadi Jammu Kashmir (TAJK), a front group of the banned militant organisation Lashkar e Taiba and its charitable affiliate Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD), is organising the rally called ‘Caravan for Kashmir’ starting on Tuesday, following a call by its chief Hafiz Mohammad Saeed.

    Several militant groups focusing on armed jihad in Indian Kashmir are participating in the rally. Cutting across political and ideological lines, groups like Difa e Pakistan Council – an alliance of more than 40 parties including JuD, Sipah e Sahiba and Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, headed by Maulana Sami ul Haque, also known as founding father of Taliban, will take part.

  12. Munich shooting does not seem so much of a ‘lone wolf’ attack any more:

    Police in Munich say they have arrested a 16-year-old Afghan friend of David Ali Sonboly, who killed nine people at a Munich shopping centre on Friday.
    They say the teenager is under investigation for failing to report the attacker’s plans, and that he could have been an accomplice.
    Sonboly, 18, had been planning his attack for a year, police said earlier.
    They say he had a Glock pistol which he may have bought on the so-called dark net.
    A statement on Munich police’s Facebook page says: “There is a suspicion that the 16-year-old is a possible tacit accomplice to the attack.”

  13. Media neutrality and all that….

  14. A baby step in the right direction!!!

    WASHINGTON: Republican White House nominee Donald Trump suggested Sunday that the US could pull out of the World Trade Organization if he is elected president.

    Interviewed on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Trump said he would slap punitive taxes on firms that moved manufacturing activities abroad, citing Mexico as an example.

    When show host Chuck Todd objected that such plans would be challenged at the WTO, he responded:

    “Doesn’t matter. We’ll renegotiate or pull out. These trade deals are a disaster, Chuck. World Trade Organization is a disaster.”

    Asked if he was concerned such actions could rattle the world economy — much as the British decision to exit the European Union has done — Trump was dismissive.

    “I’m the only one that said Brexit is going to happen,” said the billionaire. “What did it do? The stock market is higher now than when it happened.”

  15. Oh, no, not again…

    Nato must prepare for ‘overnight Russian invasion of Poland’ and the US must ship more missiles to the region, say experts
    Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014 has made Poland and the Baltic states nervous about the aggressive intentions of the Bear next door
    Poland joined Nato in 1999 and the Baltic states signed up five years later
    In 1939 Russia invaded eastern Poland after Stalin and Hitler carved the country up under the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact

      • What is one more surrender to Obama and Kerry, or more accurately what is one more betrayal of allies? I am not up on the history of that area as much as I would like but I seem to remember that Poland has either been occupied by Poland (part of Russia) or controlled by Russia (during the Cold War) as much or more then it has been a free nation. Every time the Russians take over the Poles start working to get free.

        If my memory isn’t accurate will some pole reading the blog please correct me. Thank you.


    Secretary of State John Kerry said in Vienna on Friday that air conditioners and refrigerators are as big of a threat to life as the threat of terrorism posed by groups like the Islamic State.

    The Washington Examiner reported that Kerry was in Vienna to amend the 1987 Montreal Protocol that would phase out hydrofluorocarbons, or HFCs, from basic household and commercial appliances like air conditioners, refrigerators, and inhalers.

    “As we were working together on the challenge of [ISIS] and terrorism,” Kerry said. “It’s hard for some people to grasp it, but what we–you–are doing here right now is of equal importance because it has the ability to literally save life on the planet itself.”


    Middle East (Sputnik) – Due to the recent violence in American cities, Middle Eastern states, alongside a Caribbean nation, have issued travel warnings for their citizens looking to visit the US.

    The United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and the Bahamas have all advised caution when travelling to the US. Travel warnings are regularly issued by the US urging Americans to either avoid or exercise caution in countries marred by violence or political instability.

    However now the tables have turned and foreign governments in the Middle East and the Caribbean have told their citizens to be careful as protesters marched in the US throughout the weekend after police killed black men in Louisiana and Minnesota.

    • If I was the US secretary of State I would be PAYING middle east and Caribbean nations to issue travel advisories to the USA. hell I would pay extra if they would put an out and out ban.

    • Trump could use these travel warnings in his campaign to advertise that Clinton & Obama’s support of BLM is having worldwide implications. BLM is racist mayhem financed by a communist maniac in the persona of Soros. BTW, I just finished watching a movie, “Trumbo,” about the communist writers in Hollywood. The whole point of the movie was that just being a communist shouldn’t mean you should be denied a job. A half-century later, those that are not following the party line about Homos & Race Realism are fired without remorse, so the Lefties that infest America’s upper echelons of business and academia have learned well – we’re in control now, White Man. Bow before us.
