MESOP BACKGOUNDER : Does the Turkey-Russia-Iran deal mean Kurds are back to square one?

By Hemin Lihony – RUDAW – 18 Aug 2016 – Russian President Vladimir Putin was one of the first world leaders to call his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan only hours after the July failed coup attempt, expressing his full support for Ankara and his government. That phone call became the basis for a new understanding. On his visit to Moscow this month, Erdogan explicitly told Putin that his phone call on the night of the coup provided a psychological boost for him.    Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=77162

MESOP JIHAD WATCH : DEUTSCHLAND AS A WARM PLACE FOR JIHADIST’S – German Who Plotted to Bomb U.S. Targets in Europe Gets Out of Prison Early

By SEWELL CHAN AUG. 18, 2016  – THE NEW YORK TIMES – A German man who trained in Pakistan with an offshoot of Al Qaeda and confessed in 2009 to plotting to bomb American targets in Germany was released from prison this week. The decision to grant early release to the leader of the plot, Fritz Gelowicz, comes as the country grapples with the aftershocks of two recent attacks in Bavaria by people claiming loyalty to the Islamic State. – Mr. Gelowicz, 36, was sentenced in 2010 to 12 years in prison. Counting time served before his sentencing, he had been in prison for nearly nine years and was eligible for early release based on good behavior and because he was no longer deemed to be a danger, according to Andreas Vitek, a spokesman for the Düsseldorf Higher Regional Court.  Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=77160

 

MESOP TODAYS OPINION  / AN ISRAELI RELEVANT VOTE BY JONATHAN SPYER – FOR THE FUTURE PREFERING PKK (SDF) AND A LIMITED ASSAD

Who should rule Syria? Nobody / Or at least not all of it. Grasp that and you can see a clear strategy for the West

Jonathan Spyer – The Spectator – 18 August 2016 (Dr. Jonathan Spyer is Director of the Rubin Center (formerly the GLORIA Center), IDC Herzliya, and a fellow at the Middle East Forum)

The long civil war in Syria is still far from conclusion. Any real possibility of rebel victory ended with the entry of Russian forces last autumn — but while the initiative is now with the Assad regime, the government’s forces are also far from a decisive breakthrough. So who, if anyone, should the UK be backing in the Syrian slaughterhouse, and what might constitute progress in this broken and burning land? Read all http://www.mesop.de/?p=77139

West Ignores PYD Rights Breaches: Syrian Kurdish Leader

World Bulletin – 2016-08-18 03:25 GMT – Western nations are ignoring human rights violations committed by the PYD, the Syrian arm of the terrorist PKK group, Ibrahim Biro, the head of Syria’s Kurdish National Council, said Wednesday.In exclusive comments to Anadolu Agency, Biro said that the PYD was actively working against any group it considered a threat, while attempting to assert its control over northern Syria by using the fight against ISIL as a pretext. “They’re exploiting the [international] fight against the ISIL terrorist group to attack their opponents,” he said. In recent months, the PYD has reportedly indulged in the ethnic cleansing of areas under its control, arbitrarily detained its political opponents and forced local residents to fight on its behalf.Biro went on to assert that western countries tended to overlook rights breaches committed by the PYD in northern Syria — a policy he said “facilitates the group’s ongoing domination of the region”.

MESOP ANALYSIS : SHOULD IRAQ’S ISCI FORCES REALLY BE CONSIDERED ‘GOOD MILITIAS’?

By Phillip Smyth –  PolicyWatch 2674 – August 17, 2016 – Phillip Smyth is a researcher at the University of Maryland, editor of the blog Hizballah Cavalcade, and author of The Washington Institute report The Shiite Jihad in Syria and Its Regional Effects.

While Washington should continue its efforts to engage Ammar al-Hakim’s militia network, it should also be wary of the umbrella group’s close cooperation with rabidly sectarian, anti-American actors controlled by Iran.Among the many Shiite militias that compose al-Hashd al-Shabi — the umbrella network of Popular Mobilization Units (PMUs) officially recognized by the Iraqi government — some can be considered “good” in the sense that they are more nationalistic forces who do not engage in jihadist activities and whose ties with Iran are strained or otherwise limited. The Islamic Supreme Council of Iraq (ISCI) and its allied groups have often been categorized as “good Hashd” on the argument that they are better than the multitude of openly Iranian-controlled radical Shiite jihadist units operating within Iraq. Yet for a number of militias falling under the ISCI umbrella, closer analysis indicates that this assumption needs to be reassessed. Read all  http://www.mesop.de/?p=77164

Full normalization with Turkey around corner, as Turkish parliament gets accord to ratify  – Aftershocks from attempted Turkey coup delaying Israel reconciliation – 17 Aug 2016 – Jerusalem Post

Turkish lawmakers submitted the rapprochement agreement with Israel to parliament on Wednesday, the last hurdle to the full normalization of ties and an exchange of ambassadors that is expected to take place the day of ratification.
The deal calls for Israel to pay $20 million in compensation to a fund for the families of those killed in the Mavi Marmara incident six years ago, and allow Turkey to provide humanitarian aid to Gaza via the Ashdod port. In exchange, Turkish legislation will prevent any outstanding legal claims against IDF soldiers, and Turkey will be obligated to prevent Hamas from preparing attacks against Israel – including fund-raising – from Turkish soil.

Türkische Justiz Schriftstellerin Asli Erdogan festgenommen

18 Aug 2016 – MESOP – Die „Säuberungen“ des türkischen Präsidenten gehen weiter. Nun wurde Asli Erdogan, eine der bedeutendsten Schriftstellerinnen der Türkei, verhaftet. Nach einer früheren Festnahme hatte sie über Polizei-Folter berichtet.

Asli Erdogan, eine der bedeutendsten Schriftstellerinnen der Türkei, ist am Mittwoch in ihrer Istanbuler Wohnung festgenommen worden. Mit der Festnahme Erdogans, deren Werke auch auf Deutsch vorliegen, weitet die türkische Regierung ihre Aktionen offenbar auf kritische Stimmen aus dem Literaturbetrieb aus: Die Einundfünfzigjährige warnte schon früh vor Erdogans wachsendem Autokratismus und prangerte die staatlichen Repressionen gegen Kurden an. 2008 gehörte sie zu den ersten Intellektuellen, die sich öffentlich bei den Armeniern für das erlittene Unrecht entschuldigte.

MESOP „THE LAST DAYS OF EUROPE“ – Die “stille Eroberung” Europas durch den Islam

von Giulio Meotti – 17. August 2016 – Englischer Originaltext: Islam’s “Quiet Conquest” of Europe –

  • „Der Islam ist eine französische Religion und die französische Sprache ist eine Sprache des Islam.” — Tariq Ramadan.
  • Im Jahr 1989 rechtfertigte Dalil Boubakeur, Rektor der Großen Moschee von Paris, die Verfolgung von Salman Rushdie durch Ayatollah Khomeini. Im vergangenen Jahr verlangte Boubakeur die Umwandlung von Kirchen in Moscheen.
  • In Großbritannien verteilen Mainstream-Muslim-Organisationen “Islamische Gerechtigkeit” durch über 85 Scharia-Gerichte, die an Moscheen angeschlossen sind.
  • Der Bürgerkrieg in Frankreich ist das, was der islamische Staat sucht: Entfesselung einer blinden Repression, so dass die muslimische Bevölkerung Solidarität zeigt mit der revolutionären Minderheit. Dennoch gibt es immer noch ein weit schlimmeres mögliches Ergebnis: dass nichts passiert und wir weitermachen wie bisher.
  • Echte “moderate Muslime” werden zum Schweigen gebracht oder ermordet. Volltext http://www.mesop.de/?p=77166
