The new group, known as the Peoples’ United Revolutionary Movement (HBDH), is led by the chief of the PKK’s most radical leftist faction.

MESOP Syria Daily: Are the Political Talks Doomed to Failure?
April 17 – 2016 – by Scott – eaworldview – Doubts over Syria’s political talks grew on Saturday, following the Assad Government’s continued rejection of any discussion of President Assad’s future.The Assad regime’s delegation returned to discussions with UN envoy Staffan de Mistura in Geneva on Friday. However, after a two-hour meeting, the head of the delegation, Syria’s UN Ambassador Bashar al-Jaafari, again dismissed any negotiation of a transitional governing authority. Instead, he put the onus on de Mistura to work with the regime’s amendments to the envoy’s text: “We will once again discuss our proposal the next time we will meet on Monday.” In a further sign of the stalemate, De Mistura cancelled his scheduled press briefing.

MESOP : Was man nicht sagen darf: Böhmermann ist eine feige Drecksau / Bernd Lucke
In Schulklassen gibt es oft einen Außenseiter, der bevorzugt gehänselt und herumgestoßen wird. Wer feige ist, hackt gerade auf diesem Außenseiter herum, denn da kann er sich der johlenden Unterstützung seiner Klassenkameraden am sichersten sein.
Ein solcher Feigling ist Jan Böhmermann. Er weiß, dass Erdogan der Buhmann der Nation ist. Ihn abzuwatschen, ist leichtes Spiel. Da klatscht das Publikum, weil es den ungeliebten Erdogan erwischt. Da lacht es über die primitiven Vulgaritäten. Nicht weil sie lustig sind, sondern aus Verlegenheit. Volltext : http://www.mesop.de/?p=73224
