MESOPOTAMIA NEWS : LINKS-PARTEI MITGLIED VERHAFTET IN TÜRKEI

Kurdish politician from German Left Party detained in Turkey – Kurdish politician Dilan Düzgün from Germany was arrested at Dalaman airport in Turkey.

15 Jul 2018, 11:30 – Dilan Düzgün, a politician of the German Left Party, DIE LINKE, was arrested at Dalaman airport on the basis of critical remarks against Erdoğan on social media. Düzgün is a city council member in the city of Alzey in Rheinland-Pfalz state.

A lawsuit was launched against Düzgün in 2017 for “insulting the President” and “activities for a terrorist organization” and a warrant for arrest was issued for her. Striking was the rapid reaction of the Federal Government in the case with which it obviously wanted to prevent a new hostage crisis. 26-year-old female politician was reportedly released Saturday evening as a result of efforts by the German state.

MESOPOTAMIA NEWS TODAYS GENERAL ANALYSIS : The Turkistan Islamic Party’s jihad in Syria

BY THOMAS JOSCELYN | July 10, 2018 | THE LONG WAR JOURNAL

On May 21, the Turkistan Islamic Party’s (TIP) arm in Syria released an hour-plus, documentary-style video encouraging Muslims in the West to emigrate for jihad. There is a deluge of jihadist-related content online these days, with much of it being redundant. But the production was noteworthy because the TIP, which is predominately comprised of ethnic Uighurs, framed its jihad as part of al Qaeda’s global struggle.

This is not altogether surprising, as there is voluminous evidence connecting the TIP to al Qaeda’s network. But the timing of the video stands out. It was released at a time when the TIP’s larger cousin, Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), is publicly distancing itself from al Qaeda’s notorious brand. HTS claims to have disassociated from al Qaeda, while the US government still considers the group to be an al Qaeda “affiliate.” Either way, HTS does not openly celebrate al Qaeda’s legacy — not like the TIP’s Syrian arm did in late May.

PKK bekennt sich zu Mord an einem Kurden

Tagesspiegel- 7. Juliy 2018 – Die verbotene terroristische Arbeiterpartei PKK bekennt sich zum Mord an einem Kurden. Die Tat zeigt das andere Gesicht der kurdischen Rebellen …

Neben seiner Leiche lag ein Zettel, auf dem sich die kurdische Terrororganisation PKK und ihr Frauenverband YJA-Star zu dem Mord bekannten. Mevlüt Bengi sei als Verräter am kurdischen Freiheitskampf hingerichtet worden. Ein offizielles Bekennerschreiben der PKK folgte wenig später auf deren Website. Der Mord zeigt das andere Gesicht der Rebellen, die in Europa trotz offiziellen Verbots noch vielfach als fortschrittliche Freiheitskämpfer gesehen werden.

Post-Election Turkey: The Birth of an Islamist-Nationalist Alliance

NORTH KURDISTAN (TURKEY) – MESOPOTAMIA NEWS INQUIRY & ANALYSIS BY BEGIN – SADAT CENTER

By Burak Bekdil June 29, 2018  – BESA Center Perspectives Paper No. 878, June 29, 2018

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Four decades after they emerged as marginal parties in the 1970s, Turkey’s militant Islamists and ultranationalists won a combined 53.6% of the national vote and 57% of parliamentary seats. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has said in the past that he would make foreign policy “in line with what my nation demands,” highlighting the Islamist sensitivities of his voter base. He will now add nationalist sensitivities to that foreign policy calculus. This will likely mean confrontations with nations both inside and outside Turkey’s region.

Turkey’s presidential and parliamentary elections on June 24 sent messages on many wavelengths. The voters asserted the unchallenged popularity of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who is the longest-serving Turkish leader since Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the founder of modern Turkey. They welcomed an infant center-right party, IYI (“good” in Turkish); recognized the country’s Kurds as a legitimate political force; and gave a cautious nod to an emerging social democrat politician, Muharrem Ince, Erdoğan’s closest presidential rival.
