MESOP REPORT : WAS GESCHIEHT IN MANBIJ ? DIE PKK/PYD KOMMUNE  & IHRE MENSCHEN & AUCH LINKE

BEIRUT, 23. August. Für Hassan Naifi ist Manbidsch nicht befreit worden. „Die Menschen waren heilfroh darüber, dass die Dschihadisten weg sind”, sagt er. „Aber die freundlichen Befreier haben auch ein anderes Gesicht.” Mitte des Monats war der „Islamische Staat” (IS) aus der nordsyrischen Stadt vertrieben worden. Nach wochenlangen Kämpfen und massiven Luftangriffen der amerikanisch geführten Anti-IS-Koalition waren die Milizionäre der Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in die Stadt eingerückt. Frauen verbrannten ihre Vollschleier, steckten sich Zigaretten an, umarmten kurdische Kämpferinnen. Aber Hassan Naifi, der auf der Todesliste des IS stand und fliehen musste, ist noch nicht in Feierstimmung. Er kann nicht zurück. Sein Bruder und dessen Familie, die geblieben war, die der IS als Geisel genommen und weiter im Norden freigelassen hatte, auch nicht. Die neuen Herrscher (PKK/PYD) würden das nicht zulassen, sagt er.

MESOP TODAYS OPINION BY Arash Karami (AL MONITOR) – Why did Russian use of Iranian air base stir up controversy?

24 Aug 2016 – When Russia announced last week that it had launched airstrikes against Syrian opposition forces from western Iran, Ali Shamkhani, the secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC), was the first Iranian official to indirectly confirm the news. Shortly thereafter, a number of other officials both confirmed the news and defended it, arguing that it was part of a strategic pact between the two countries to fight terrorism in the region.

The visit was the first by an Iranian official since the failed July 15 coup to overthrow Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. As such, it was part of Tehran’s show of solidarity that began during the coup attempt, with phone calls from Zarif, Ali Shamkhani, the secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, and Qasem Soleimani, the head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ (IRGC) external operations wing, the Quds Force.

MESOP : DIE TALIBAN DER LBGTI KULTUR  :  Öffentliche Kunst  – Die Tyrannei der Beleidigten

24.08.2016, von Arnold Bartetzky  – FAZ –  Seit mehr als sieben Jahrhunderten prangt ein bösartiges Schmähbild an der Wittenberger Stadtkirche St.Marien. Es zeigt eine Sau, an deren Zitzen Menschenkinder säugen, die mit ihren Spitzhüten als Juden gekennzeichnet sind. Hinter dem Tier hockt ein Rabbiner und hebt dessen Schwanz und Hinterbein, um in den Anus zu schauen. Die besondere Perfidie der Darstellung von Juden im intimen Kontakt mit einer Sau besteht darin, dass das Schwein im Judentum als unrein gilt. Das Steinrelief sollte die Juden demütigen und zugleich Christen gegen sie aufhetzen. Die Wittenberger „Judensau“ ist ein drastisches Zeugnis des mittelalterlichen Antisemitismus, der sich immer wieder in Pogromen entlud. Martin Luther, der in der Stadtkirche predigte, steigerte den Bekanntheitsgrad der Darstellung, indem er sie in einer seiner Schmähschriften zum Ausgangspunkt für die Verhöhnung des jüdischen Glaubens nahm.

Turkey Begins Major Offensive in Syria as Biden Arrives in Ankara

Turkey sent tanks, warplanes, and special operations forces into a border region of Syria on Wednesday as part of the U.S.-led coalition’s push to force the self-proclaimed Islamic State from the town of Jarablus. The operation marks Turkey’s largest military operation to date in the Syrian conflict (NYT) and comes as U.S. Vice President Joe Biden arrived in Ankara (Hurriyet) to meet Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Prime Minister Binali Yildirim. Turkey ordered residents of the Turkish town of Karkamis, which borders Syria’s Jarablus, to evacuate ahead of the offensive (BBC). A spokesman for Syria’s Kurdish YPG militia, a major U.S. ally in the fight against the Islamic State, called (Reuters) Turkey’s offensive “blatant aggression in Syrian internal affairs.”

ANALYSIS

“The offensive on the city of Jarabulus began hours before Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. was set to meet with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Ankara to discuss tensions raised by the failed coup in Turkey last month. The joint operation in Syria seemed intended to send a message that the countries are still cooperating in the fight against the militant group,” Ceylan Yeginsu writes for the New York Times.

“With relations between Washington and Ankara at their most acrimonious in years, Mr Biden will publicly reassure Recep Tayyip Erdogan that the US authorities will examine as quickly as possible the extradition request for Fethullah Gulen, the Pennsylvania-based cleric who the Turkish president claims was behind the coup. At the same time, Mr Biden will privately express American concern at the sweeping crackdown of his opponents that Mr Erdogan has instigated since the coup attempt on July 15,” Geoff Dyer and Mehul Srivastava write for the Financial Times.

“These days, however, the U.S. and Turkey see eye to eye on very little. The two countries are at odds over Syria and the urgency of removing Syrian President Bashar Assad; over support for Syrian Kurds who, in contrast to the Turks, have proved to be reliable U.S. partners in the fight against Islamic State; over the territorial sovereignty of Iraq; and over continuing sanctions on Iran. Though American officials privately acknowledge that Mr. Erdogan is ‘erratic,’ they have given the Turkish leader extraordinary leverage over U.S. policy,” CFR’s Steven A. Cook and Michael J. Koplow write for the Wall Street Journal.
