Erdogan: Turkey would not agree to arms transfers to Kurdish fighters in Syria

Originally posted on Global News:

SURUC, Turkey – Turkey wouldn’t agree to any U.S. arms transfers to Kurdish fighters who are battling Islamic militants in Syria, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was quoted as saying Sunday, as the extremist group fired more mortar rounds near the Syrian-Turkish border.

Turkey views the main Syrian Kurdish group, the PYD – and its military wing which is fighting IS militants – as an extension of the PKK, which has waged a 30-year insurgency in Turkey and is designated a terror group by the U.S. and NATO.

Washington has said recently that it has engaged in intelligence sharing with Kurdish fighters and officials have not ruled out future arms transfers to the Kurdish fighters.

“The PYD is for us, equal to the PKK. It is a terror organization,” Erdogan told a group of reporters on his return from a visit to Afghanistan.

“It would be wrong for the United States…

Two bodies lie close to each other next to a burning house after a rocket landed in Ukraine’s troubled eastern city of Donetsk on October 18, 2014. The prime minister of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic says over a dozen civilians have been killed in shelling in Donetsk.

Fox’s Pirro: Obama set ISIS leader free in 2009

By Jon Greenberg on Thursday, June 19th, 2014 at 6:05 p.m.

The march of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, across a swath of Iraq has fractured a nation and spurred Republican attacks that the Obama administration is on the verge of “snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.”

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro tied President Barack Obama to the roots of the current assault. On June 14, Pirro offered listeners this insight into the ISIS leader. (ISIS is also called ISIL, for Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.)

“The head of this band of savages is a man named Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, the new Osama Bin Laden,” Pirro said…

#StopEbolaStrike: National Strike to Force Obama to Block West African Flights

#StopEbolaStrike: National Strike to Force Obama to Block West African Flights

Infowars.com is calling for a general strike across the United States in response to the federal government’s botched response to the Ebola outbreak and the Obama administration’s refusal to block flights coming in from West Africa.

Countries bordering those in West Africa impacted by the Ebola outbreak have been successful in stopping the spread of the virus by blocking flights, including Ivory Coast, Guinea-Bissau and Senegal, and yet the Obama administration has refused to do likewise despite innumerable public figures calling on the White House to take action.

Numerous airlines have also restricted flights to Ebola-affected countries and yet the United States remains wide open to potential Ebola patients not only via airports but also via the country’s porous southern border, where hundreds of illegal aliens from Ebola-hit countries have poured across in recent months.

Using batons and pepper spray, riot police clashed with protesters who were trying to reoccupy a demonstrator’s camp in Mongkok district.

This development puts at risk planned talks between protest leaders and city authorities, aimed at stopping the weeks-long demonstrations of tens of thousands of people, who are calling for free elections and independency from China.

The New York-based NGO said on Thursday that Khawaja appeared before a Bahraini court to face charges related to two previous incidents, in which she had torn up photographs of the king.

Once in the courtroom on Wednesday, she pulled out and ripped up another photograph of the monarch.

“A Bahraini rights activist jailed for ripping up a photo of King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa in court on October 14, 2014, should be released immediately.

Bahrain should drop all freedom-of-expression related charges against the activist, Zainab al-Khawaja, who is eight months pregnant and has been charged with insulting the king,” the body has said.

How One Man Refused to Spy on Fellow Muslims for the FBI

Arun Kundnani, Emily Keppler and Muki Najaer report for The Nation:

FBI‘On the night of December 9, 2011, Siham Stewart called her husband, Ayyub Abdul-Alim, as he closed down his corner store, Nature’s Garden, in Springfield, Massachusetts. She asked him to bring home a gallon of milk. A few minutes later, she watched from the window of their second-floor apartment as he was seized in the street and handcuffed by two police officers.

Forty-eight hours after Abdul-Alim’s arrest, FBI agent James Hisgen and Springfield police officer Ronald Sheehan offered him the chance to walk away free of charges if he agreed to become an informant on the Muslim community. He refused the deal and is now held at the Cedar Junction maximum-security prison in Massachusetts, facing up to sixteen years behind bars.’

New Zealand Cops Raided Home of Reporter Working on Snowden Documents

Featured photo - New Zealand Cops Raided Home of Reporter Working on Snowden Documents‘Agents from New Zealand’s national police force ransacked the home of a prominent independent journalist earlier this month who was collaborating with The Intercept on stories from the NSA archive furnished by Edward Snowden. The stated purpose of the 10-hour police raid was to identify the source for allegations that the reporter, Nicky Hager, recently published in a book that caused a major political firestorm and led to the resignation of a top government minister.

But in seizing all the paper files and electronic devices in Hager’s home, the authorities may have also taken source material concerning other unrelated stories that Hager was pursuing. Recognizing the severity of the threat posed to press freedoms from this raid, the Freedom of the Press Foundation today announced a global campaign to raise funds for Hager’s legal defense.’
