  5. ‘Proof of Erdogan family money abroad’, Turkish opposition (ansamed, Nov 28, 2017)

    “Some family members and close collaborators of Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan transferred about 15 million dollars between December 2011 and January 2012 to an offshore company, Bellway Limited, in the tax haven of the Isle of Man.

    The accusation was made on Tuesday in addressing his group in parliament by Kemal Kilicdaroglu, head of the largest opposition party in Turkey, the CHP, saying that “We have all the records of this company” and ”we also have all the documents of the financial transactions”.

    Erdogan recently said that he was ready to resign is it was proven that he had ”a single penny abroad”. Kilicdaroglu said that Bellway Limited was founded on August 1, 2011, with a sole board member and ”a one-pound-sterling founding capital”. The alleged money transfers from Erdogan’s circle came after the company changed hands in November of the same year: 3.75 million dollars from his son, Ahmet Burak; 3.75 million from his brother-in-law Ziya Ilgen; 3.75 million from his brother Mustafa; 2.25 million from Osman Ketenci, father-in-law of his son; and 1.5 million from his former assistant, Mustafa Gundogan.

    On Nov. 28, the CHP head called on Erdo?an to “do what is necessary”, adding that “I have proven it, now tell me who is disreputable … If you are a man of honor, you will do what is necessary. Full stop.” In a speech before the parliamentary group of his AKP party, Erdogan rejected the accusations and called the CHP ”the most traitorous party of the country” due to its leader. Erdogan has recently filed a lawsuit against Kilicdaroglu due to the accusations, asking for 1.5 million Turkish liras in compensation for moral damages (about 320,000 euros).

    “… In recent months, female immigrants to ISIS have been fleeing the caliphate by the hundreds, eventually returning to their native countries or finding sanctuary in detention centers or refugee camps along the way. Some are mothers with young children who say they were pressured into traveling to Iraq or Syria to be with their husbands.

  8. Former Equality Chief: ‘Dangerous’ Islamophobia Awards ‘Paint a Target’ On Nominees’ Backs (breitbart, Nov 28, 2017)

    “The annual Islamophobia awards — previous winners of which include Breitbart London editor-in-chief Raheem Kassam — are “genuinely dangerous” according to Trevor Phillips, the former equalities chief who popularised the term ‘Islamophobia’.

    The former chairman of Britain’s Equality and Human Rights Commission said the label “painted a target on the back of people on the list”, following news he was nominated for one of the “ironic” Islamic Human Rights Commission’s (IHRC) awards himself.

    Other nominees put up for awards by the London-based NGO included schools watchdog Ofsted, and Dame Louise Casey, the government’s politically correct former ‘integration tsar’, who suggested more should be done to challenge “regressive religious and cultural ideologies” present in “segregated” areas of Britain in a report last year.

    “Defining Louise or myself or anybody else as an Islamophobe is offering a licence to do us harm,” The Sunday Times reported Phillips as saying.

    “They will say that it is just verbal and political. They know that in this world right now this is not the way some other people see it. It really isn’t a joke. It is genuinely dangerous.

    “These campaigns are all part of an attempt to intimidate public figures from saying anything at all about integration into our society,” he stressed.

    The chairman of the IHRC — a Shia-dominated sectarian group which has been described as a “Khomeinist” — Massoud Shadjareh, has dismissed Phillips’s concerns…”
