MESOP NEWS SPECIAL : PUTIN’S PRIME TARGET – DESTROYING WEST BOUND EUROPE !

February 24, 2017  – Special Dispatch – No.  6802

Munich Security Conference – Russian FM Lavrov’s Call For A New World Order To Counter U.S. Influence In Europe

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov’s speech at the 53rd Munich Security Conference contained the elements of a new political ideology that Russian President Vladimir Putin is striving to build. The Soviet Union was erected on the foundation of a cohesive communist ideology. However, with the fall of the Soviet Union, Russia remained without an ideology to counter the “liberal world order” and, most importantly, the U.S. influence in Western and Eastern Europe. As pro-Kremlin philosopher Alexander Dugin wrote: “All of Russian history is a dialectical argument with the West and Western culture, a battle for the assertion (sometimes grasped only intuitively) of its own Russian truth.”[1]

Following is an explanation of Lavrov’s speech, as well as excerpts from his speech and Q&A:  Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=83102

MESOP FORECAST : Tehran’s Rift With Turkey Widens

February 25 – 2017 – Co-operation turns to tension between Iran and Turkey over the Syrian conflict

Iran’s recent rift with Turkey widened on Friday, as Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif challenged his Turkish counterpart Mevlut Cavusoglu.In an interview with the Republican Guards’ Fars News, Zarif said that Turkish officials are entangled in the consequences of their “past mistakes” and are now attempting to play a blame game by making accusations against Iran.“Unfortunately, the wrong policies of the Turkish government in the past have created a situation that they have to project the blame; it is a regret that they do so,” Zarif said. Iran has been provoked by a February 19 speech by Cavusoglu, at the Munich Security Conference in Germany, deriding Iran’s “sectarian policy” in the region through interventions and support of groups destabilizing the area. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has accused the Islamic Republic of promoting “Persian nationalism”. Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=83106

MESOP NEWS : “TWO CIVILIANS & 10 Year old child” – PKK Takes Responsibility For Viransehir Attack

Mira Rojkan – 25/02/2017 – PKK Takes Responsibility For Viransehir Attack

LEEDS — The Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) announced on Friday that it takes full responsibility for the explosion that took place in the predominantly Kurdish province of Sanliurfa in southern Turkey last week and resulted in the deaths of two civilians one of which was a 10-year-old child.

In a statement PKK’s armed wing People’s Defense Forces (HPG) announced that the attack in the town of Viransehir was a retaliation response to the killings of three Kurdish guerrilla fighters in the same town committed by the Turkish army, Kurdistan24 reported.

The attack that took place at the end of last week, killed two people, including a 10-year-old child, despite the fact the explosion was targeting a housing complex for police personal, prosecutor and judges. The local authorities in the province of Sanliurfa put the blame on PKK straight after the attack, which led to the arrests of more than 26 people on suspicions of planning the attack. The conflict between the pro-Kurdish PKK and Turkish government has been ongoing for more than 40 years, leading to the deaths of thousands of civilians on the territory of Turkey. www.mesop.de

MESOP NEWS SPECIAL : NEXT SO CALLED “WOMENS MARCH” AGAINST TRUMP IS COMING

26 Febr 2018 – Lead by convicted Terrorist Rasmea Odeh and the earlier times darling of Moscow and East German SED Party: Madame Angela Davis – a hardcore Stalinist

In a manifesto published in The Guardian on Feb. 6, the brains behind the movement are calling for a “new wave of militant feminist struggle.” That’s right: militant, not peaceful.

The document was co-authored by, among others, Rasmea Yousef Odeh, a convicted terrorist. Odeh, a Palestinian, was convicted in Israel in 1970 for her part in two terrorist bombings, one of which killed two students while they were shopping for groceries. She spent 10 years in prison for her crimes. She then managed to become a US citizen in 2004 by lying about her past (great detective work, INS: Next time, use Google) but was subsequently convicted, in 2014, of immigration fraud for the falsehoods. However, she won the right to a new trial (set for this spring) by claiming she had been suffering from PTSD at the time she lied on her application. Oh, and in her time as a citizen, she worked for a while as an ObamaCare navigator.

In the last two days the police and armor from the 9thDivision moved out of Abu Saif in the south, took the town of Yarmouk. The Golden Div joined in and together they have freed the Mosul Airport, Ghazalni Camp, and entered Tel Ruman, Mamun, Wadi Hajar, Hawl al-Josaq and Dandan. (Medecins Sans Frontieres)

February 24 the Iraqi forces (ISF) secured the Mosul airport and Ghazlani camp and headed north into the city itself. The Golden Division secured Ghazlani, while the Federal Police and Rapid Reaction Division, supported by armor of the 9thDivision did the same for Mosul airport. Large numbers of Islamic State fighters surrenderedto the police at the airfield, something that has not really been reported before. This could point to the insurgents’ morale breaking. The Golden Division then movedinto the Maamun Wadi Hajar neighborhoods to the northwest of Ghazlani. The two police units went for Hawl al-Josaq and Dandan, which are directly north of the airport, freeing the latter. The army’s 9th Division and the Hashd’s Al Abbas Division took Tal Ruman that is to the east of Maamun. The ISF were using bulldozers to make new roadways to avoid the main thoroughfares, which have been laced with IEDs. Moving to the outskirts of the city was relatively easy, but now the real fight is beginning as the ISF enter the Mosul itself.   Read all and click for Map http://www.mesop.de/?p=83126

Stephen Bannon, „der wohl mächtigste Strippenzieher im Weißen Haus“, plane einen „radikalen Rückbau des Staates“, meldet WO. Es sei allerdings „nicht klar, ob Bannon mit dem von ihm gewählten Begriff der Dekonstruktion letztlich die Zerstörung“ des Staates meint oder so etwas wie „weniger Staat, weniger Zentralstaat“, wie es der Sprecher des Auswärtigen Amtes vermutet, verbunden mit der Empfehlung, Bannons Worte „nicht auf die Goldwaage (zu) legen“. Das Übliche also, abwarten, Cola trinken, Donuts essen und schauen, was sich so ergibt.

Derweil hat die Dekonstruktion der Bundesrepublik bereits begonnen, in aller Offenheit und Öffentlichkeit, unter der Federführung der Staatsministerin im Bundeskanzleramt, Aydan Özoguz, zuständig für Migration, Flüchtlinge und Integration der autochthonen Bevölkerung.

MESOP CULTUR : NEO-ISLAMISCHE LEITBILDER AM WIENER KEBAB STAND

Haramstufe Rot – von Walter Vukovic

Überdosis Religion, kein Bock auf Schule

„Warum stirbt so a Spanferkel eigentlich immer genau dann, wenns grad an Apfel im Mund hat?“ lallt der Kerl am Kebab-Stand neben mir, um gleich darauf geräuschvoll in seinen Döner zu beißen. Es ist 03:00, die Stunde der verbal Inkontinenten: „Überhaupt, i würd eh vü mehr Äpfel essen, aber mei Lieblingssorte gibt’s ned so oft.“

„Und, was ist das für eine Sorte?“ frage ich die Saufnase aus reiner Langeweile. „Na, eben die mit dem Schweinderl drumherum. Ohne des Schweinderl rundherum hod so a Apfel jo gor ka richtiges Aroma …. Owa imma no mehr ois so a türkischer Döner.“ Ich wechsle einen Blick mit meinem Freund Ali, dem der Kebab-Stand gehört.

Der Herr der Zwiebelringe, wie ich ihn nenne, verdreht genervt die Augen. Von Hunger geplagt bin ich nach der letzten Schicht wiedermal hier aufgeschlagen. Auf ein Dürüm, ein Cola, und ein paar Worte von Mann zu Mann. „Kein Wunder, dass Du so a Wampen hast“, hat meine Ex immer gekeppelt, „nach Mitternacht zählen die Kalorien doppelt“. So ein Blödsinn, denen ist die Uhrzeit doch scheißegal.

Falsche Kreise und viel Wut

Ali gleitet mit dem Messer durchs Hammelfleisch am Spieß und schweigt. Er wirkt bedrückt, und ich ahne auch, warum. Seit längerem schon gibts mit seinem Sohn, dem Halil, ziemliche Wickel. Früher war er ein lustiger, aufgeweckter Kerl, der fast 16-jährige Junior, doch dann ist er verkehrt abgebogen. Falsche Kreise, eine Überdosis Religion, kein Bock auf Schule, viel Wut im Bauch.

Entwicklungen, die Vater Ali mit Sorge beobachtet. Der ist zwar, no na, selbst Moslem, schert sich aber wenig um aus dem Mittelalter stammende Regeln und Moral-Vorstellungen. Und jetzt soll er seine jüngere Tochter nicht mehr zum Schwimmunterricht schicken, weil das für den Herrn Sohn „haram“ ist?  Volltext http://www.mesop.de/?p=83118

MESOP CULTURE : Compliance bzw. Regeltreue / Neustes zur Genderforschung  !

Von Bettina Weiguny –  Ex-SPD-Ministerin bekommt als VW-Managerin 12 Millionen für 13 Monate

 Wenn Frauen die besseren Menschen sind, sind sie zwangsläufig auch die besseren Manager. So viel hat die Genderwissenschaft bewiesen.

Und da so viele fähige Frauen unsere tollen Konzerne noch toller machen, braucht es auch dazu den politisch korrekten Titel. Wenn also eine supertolle Managerin in Wolfsburg für ein paar Monate dürftige Arbeit mehr kassiert als meiner Tochter Jules Lehrerin in ihrem gesamten Berufsleben, dann beschenkt sie die feministische Forschung mit neuen Erkenntnissen.

 Lektion eins: Augen auf bei der Berufswahl! Lektion zwei: Kungeleien mit Betriebsrats-Machos lohnen sich (jedenfalls bei VW)! Und sage niemand mehr: Frauen verstehen nichts von harten Gehaltsverhandlungen.

Yet rarely has the animosity spilled over into open and bitter verbal sparring.  – Author Semih Idiz Posted February 22, 2017

Morocco’s entire foreign policy is influenced by what’s happening in Western Sahara. If the EU does not support Morocco’s claim to Western Sahara and turn a blind eye to products coming from this region, then [Morocco] will open and close its borders as it sees fit.”

February 23, 2017 – By Vincent van den Born  – On February 22, France 24 reported that Morocco uses the migrant crisis as leverage in a trade dispute with the EU. More than 850 migrants are said to have breached the border with Spanish held Ceuta from Morocco. Located just South of Gibraltar, Ceuta was conquered by the Portuguese in the 15th century, before deciding to remain in the Spanish Empire in the 17th century. It is one of two Spanish cities on the Mediterranean Coast, the other one being Melilla. Consequently, it is one of two land borders between Europe and Africa, making the city a focal point for migrants seeking to gain entrance.Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=83062

MESOP NEWS TODAYS CRITIQUE : How Western academics help spread Assad’s propaganda

Kyle Orton Wednesday – 24 February 2016  – MIDDLE EAST EYE

For Syria’s Assad, it helps if his propaganda is not only delivered by regime spokesmen but independent analysts, journalists, academics, and politicians.

From the beginning of Syria’s war, the regime of Bashar al-Assad, enabled by Iran and Russia, has run a very elaborate media war to portray itself as the victim of an international conspiracy, wherein its only opponents are terrorists from al-Qaeda and its offshoots who are being used by foreigners – namely the Gulf States, Turkey, Israel, and the United States – to overthrow a defiant “resistance” state.

The other part of this strategic messaging is aimed at the West, which Assad otherwise accuses of supporting jihadi-Salafist terrorism against him: Assad is the only alternative to the terrorists, it says, so the West should support him. War criminal he might be, he will protect the minorities – his role in endangering them by starting a sectarian war against the Sunni majority and bolstering the takfiris within the insurgency to cannibalise all legitimate or engageable armed opposition, notwithstanding – and has no immediate plans to fly planes into Western skyscrapers. (That the leading edge of Assad’s ground forces are made up of radically sectarian, foreign Shia jihadists under Iran’s control, some of them Iraqis responsible for killing a quarter of the 4,000 US soldiers who fell in Mesopotamia, and are integrated into a state-run terrorist network that has struck Western and Jewish targets the world over, gets left out.)

MESOP SPECIAL II: HILLARY’S PARTY ! – US DEMOCRATS AS RADICAL ISLAMISTS – Keith Ellison’s Questionable Ties

by Oren Litwin –  The Daily Caller – MIDDLE EAST FORUM  – February 16, 2017

The Middle East Forum has written before about Representative Keith Ellison, who is currently in the running for chair of the Democratic National Committee. Rep. Ellison does not merely associate with extremist groups; he has espoused support for convicted terrorists and peddled conspiracy theories about the September 11 attacks. Our research now shows it goes even further than that: Ellison has also welcomed the financial backing of prominent extremists and terror financiers.

The Islamist Money in Politics project (IMIP) tracks the political donations of over 1,400 prominent members of known Islamist organizations, such as the terror-supporting Holy Land Foundation and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), the American wing of the Pakistani Jamaat e-Islami, which aims to obtain political power and form a global Islamic state. Keith Ellison is the single largest recipient of campaign donations in the IMIP database—having received nearly $200,000 dollars from prominent Islamists over his career.

Eine Kulturwissenschaftlerin schlägt vor, die Opfer einer Gewalttat als „Erlebende“ zu bezeichnen. Dagegen wehren sich viele Frauen, denn so werden Taten durch Sprache unsichtbar gemacht.

24.02.2017, von Ursula Scheer  – FAZ – Mit Blick auf Vergewaltigungen von Opfern zu sprechen sei verkehrt. Und auch im Bezug auf den Holocaust, so wird in Klammern nahegelegt, solle man den Begriff besser nicht verwenden. Die angemessene, weil wertneutrale Bezeichnung für Menschen, denen insbesondere sexuelle Gewalt widerfahren sei, laute „Erlebende“. So müsse es auch im Duden stehen. Eine Vergewaltigung ein Erlebnis ? Es ist schon atemberaubend, was die „Missy“-Autorin und Kulturwissenschaftlerin Mithu Sanyal mit der Studentin Marie Albrecht in einem gemeinsamen Text in der „taz“ propagiert. Und es wird atemberaubender mit jedem weiteren Argumentationsschritt dieses Artikels, der geradewegs in den Abgrund führt – und damit beispielhaft für die Irrläufe eines reaktionären, vor allem im Internet heimischen Feminismus steht, der sich mit viel Hashtag- und Sprachvorschriftsgetöse als vermeintliche Speerspitze im Kampf um Gleichstellung aller Gender und Identitäten, Ethnien und Klassen geriert, tatsächlich aber Opferverachtung betreibt.

MESOP NEWS TODAYS ANALYSIS : HEZBOLLAH LOSING ITS LUSTER UNDER SOLEIMANI
By Hanin Ghaddar – PolicyWatch 2766 – February 22, 2017

Many Hezbollah fighters believe their Iranian supervisor in Syria views them as easily replaceable Arab cannon fodder, and the resultant tension is generating disillusionment about Tehran’s claims of pan-Shiite unity.
The deteriorating relations between Hezbollah and Syrian regime fighters are no longer secret. Lebanese social media platforms affiliated with Shiite supporters of Hezbollah are replete with mockery of the Syrian army’s incompetence, corruption, clumsiness, cowardice, and lack of resources. Bashar al-Assad’s forces are often blamed for causing Hezbollah losses or hampering operations against the rebels. While this trend has seemingly inflated egos among the group’s core supporters back home, it also suggests that political and military alliances are more complicated on the ground in Syria.
Relations between Hezbollah fighters and their commanders in Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) are similarly complicated, but much more problematic to discuss publicly. Hezbollah remains Iran’s most skilled militia, but anecdotal accounts indicate that it may no longer enjoy its privileged status with Tehran, at least in terms of how its forces are treated on the battlefield. The war in Syria has uncovered Iran’s true expansionist intentions, along with a Persian arrogance toward Arab Shiites that Hezbollah fighters are not used to.  Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=83030

 

MESOP DOCUMENTS & PROSPECTS : Middle East Forum Plans Out a “White House Commission on Radical Islam”

News from the Middle East Forum – February 22, 2017

PHILADELPHIA – February 22, 2017 – Six months ago, Donald Trump announced his intention to “establish a commission on radical Islam” early in his presidency, designed to investigate and explain the “core convictions and beliefs of radical Islam,” identify “warning signs of radicalization,” and expose “the networks in our society that support radicalization.”

In an effort to aid President Trump in implementing this pledge, the Middle East Forum has prepared a comprehensive plan  for a White House Commission on Radical Islam.

Written by Christopher C. Hull, a former congressional staffer, the plan centers around:

MESOP FLASH  NEWS : CLANDESTINE JOHN  – McCain Secretly Visited Syria Last Weekend

Michael Dalder/Reuters 23 Febr 2017  – Sen. John McCain secretly traveled to northern Syria last weekend, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday. The senator’s visit was reportedly organized with help from the U.S. military and was predominantly an effort to allow McCain to speak with American officials and Kurdish fighters leading the charge to push ISIS militants out of Raqqa, the jihadist group’s stronghold. “Mr. McCain is believed to be the first U.S. lawmaker to travel to the Kurdish-controlled area of northeastern Syria since it became a hub for American special-operations forces who are aiding local forces in the fight against Islamic State,” the Journal noted. It is believed that McCain last visited Syria in 2013 when he met with the Free Syrian Army, another rebel group supported by the United States. www.mesop.de

MESOP NEWS SYRIA : NO ASSURANCES FÜR PYD/PKK IN MOSCOW – Russia May Have Sidelined PYD in Geneva Talks

Rudaw –  2017-02-22 – Despite the fact that several Kurdish representatives from the Syrian Kurdish opposition are to take part in the Geneva talks as part of the delegation of Saudi-backed High Negotiation Committee (HNC) on Thursday, it is not clear if the ruling Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) in northern Syria will have a seat on the table.

Russia, which has maintained friendly ties with the PYD and has pushed hard to include the Kurds in the fourth round of Geneva talks, may have agreed to sideline the PYD as a concession to Turkey, Munzir Markhus, the spokesperson for the HNC told the pan-Arab Asharq al-Awsat newspaper on Tuesday. Markhus called it a “sacrifice” that Russia, which backs the Syrian regime, has offered to Turkey in the hope that in return it would win concessions to make room for the so-called Moscow platform, named after the Syrian parties that are under the political influence of the Kremlin.  Read more http://www.mesop.de/?p=83034

No, I’m not expecting a breakthrough,” de Mistura told a news conference. “But I am expecting and determined for keeping a very pro-active momentum.” The opposition-rebel delegation, again hoping to expose the regime’s lack of will for any resolution, called for face-to-face negotiations. Spokesman Salem al-Muslet said the group did not want another fruitless round of discussions:

We have experience with this regime. They’re not here to negotiate about a political transition, but they’re here to buy time and commit more crimes in Syria. There’s no trust in this regime. Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=83036

 

MESOP NEWS BACKGROUNDER : MEMRI February 21, 2017  – Special Dispatch – No. 6794

The Syrian Regime’s Ambivalence Towards President Trump

Based on statements by Syrian regime officials, chiefly President Bashar Al-Assad himself, and on articles in Syrian government and pro-government press, the regime’s attitude towards U.S. President Donald Trump is characterized by ambivalence. On the one hand, regime officials have thus far expressed cautious optimism regarding the future of relations between the countries out of a desire to maintain good ties with a U.S. administration they see as different from its predecessor and more in line with Russia regarding the Syrian crisis. On the other hand, articles in the official Syrian press did not hold back their criticism of President Trump, particularly after his call to establish safe zones for refugees in Syria.[1]

Following aggressive moves by al-Qa’ida-aligned Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, a number of rebel groups sought protection under Ahrar al-Sham. In response, Jabhat Fateh al-Sham and its main allies announced the formation of a new umbrella group, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham, headed by the leader of a hardline former faction of Ahrar al-Sham. If the lines between the two blocs harden, a confrontation between them could further weaken the rebel position in Syria. Read all and watch pics   http://www.mesop.de/?p=83048

U.S. Marines Head to Norway and Australia | Kaitlin Lavinder and Will Edwards, The Cipher Brief
U.S. Marines are being deployed to Norway and Australia, ostensibly as part of standard procedure, but also to respond to two emerging threats, Russia and China.

Expert Commentary

First Foreign Forces in Norway Since WWII | Karsten Friis, Senior Advisor and Head, Research Group on Security and Defence, Norwegian Institute of International Affairs
“The semi-permanent presence of USMC is in this context welcome, but I think the symbolic value is as important. The presence of U.S. troops is a signal of U.S. commitment to collective defense, and thereby also sends a signal of deterrence towards Russia. The various U.S. deployments in Europe, including this one, thus both serve a military and a political purpose.”

Marines Head to Australia: Still Working Toward a Full Deployment | Andrew Shearer, Director, Alliances and American Leadership Project, Center for Strategic and International Studies
“The Australian and U.S. governments are still working towards full rotations by a 2,500-strong Marine Air-Ground Task Force (MAGTF). That force level was originally meant to be achieved by around 2017, but is now likely to take several years longer, owing to drawn-out negotiations on cost sharing that took until October 2016 to conclude.” Read all expert commentaries
