MESOP NEWS Iran Daily: Tehran Frets Over European Investment
March 05 – 2017 – By Scott Lucas – eawolrdview – In another sign of concern over economic recovery and the pace of foreign investment after the July 2015 nuclear deal, Iran’s State media is featuring a report that the “US government has thwarted many funding projects and deals…during the past months”.Interestingly, Press TV turned to Arab media — normally treated with disdain by Tehran’s State outlets — to cite disappointment over the lack of European investment and banking deals. – As soon as the implementation of the nuclear agreement was announced in January 2016, Iran began to hail the ties with Europe, with President Rouhani visiting France and Iran and European countries sending delegations to Tehran. Agreements were announced in sectors such as transport and energy, and the Islamic Republic headlined the deal to purchase 118 planes from France’s Airbus — later complemented by 80 from Boeing — reviving Iran’s passenger fleet.

MESOP COMMENTARIES : THE STALINIST PKK & SHINGAL – BY HAMA BLOGGER
Hama | 16 hours ago
If only PKK would respect the soveriegnty of KRG this problem could’ve been avoided. Its time for kurds to look beyond their party allegience and take a critical look at their own party. What’s right is right. PKK are not perfect and they have made a huge mistake here. For years they have occupied Shingal illegally with money from Baghdad. While they themselves won’t allow any Peshmerga in Rojava. This double standard is not acceptable. Problem will only be solved when PKK learn to respect KRG’s border the same way KRG respects Rojava’s border. Shingal is part of KRG. Period. This means only Peshmerga can operate in the area. All political decisions must be made by KRG. Not by PKK or “local” PKK millitias. Any Yezidi that wants to defend Shingal must sign up as Peshmerga. KRG is not a land of millitias. Before we know it we’ll have christian millitias, turkmen millitias, arab millitias and all want autonomy. KRG will be divided and we will never become a state. And vice verca. PKK will never allow any local KDP millitias in Rojava. So why do they expect KRG to allow PKK millitias in Shingal? Enough hypocracy from PKK. Report www.mesop.de

MESOP LBGT CUTURE: KEINE contradiction in adiecto – “Wie kann das gehen! Schwul & rechts“, fragt die FAZ, weil Schwule die besseren Menschen sind – und vergisst ganz, daß die nazistische SA anfangs geradezu ein Homosexuellenzentrum war
Milo Yiannopoulos Jung, schwul, rechtsradikal?
Ein Homosexueller, der Minderheiten diskriminiert – wie kann das gehen? Es gab immer auch eine radikal rechte Spielart schwuler Identität. Die Äußerungen von Milo Yiannopoulos zur Pädophilie stehen in dieser Tradition.
