‘Some 7,000 armed police in heavy vehicles surrounded the Incirlik air base used by NATO forces in Adana in what a Turkish minister called a “security check.” With no official explanation, speculations have arisen about a new coup attempt or VIP visit.
Hurriyet reported earlier that Adana police had been tipped off about a new coup attempt, and forces were immediately alerted. The entrance to the base was closed off.
Security forces armed with rifles and armored TOMA vehicles used by Turkish riot police could be seen at the site in photos taken by witnesses.’
‘On Monday of last week, airstrikes, led by US coalition forces, killed 21 innocent civilians in Manbij’s northern Hazawneh quarter in Syria. On the following Tuesday, additional strikes in the region killed 56 more, including multiple children.
Prior to the strikes last week, more than 100 civilians have already been killed in Manbij in only a short time by US bombs — nearly half of them children.
On Friday, another tragic air strike hit the Save the Children-supported maternity hospital in Idlib. This hospital serves over 1,300 women and performs over 300 deliveries each month.’
‘When I think of the recent developments in the USA (Dallas shooting, Orlando shooting) and Europe (Nice, murdered priest, Germany shooting) I get this unpleasant feeling that something is not quite right. For one thing, the perpetrators are absolutely ridiculous: pseudo-Muslims who turn out to be drinking homosexuals, ex-patients of mental institutions – the kind of people I call “overnight Muslims”: they all make darn sure to say Allahu Akbar a number of times, but other than that, they have no sign of Islam at all.
In fact, far from being trained Daesh fighters, they are all losers with weak personalities. Exactly the kind of people the special services (and religious sects) like to prey upon because they are weak and easy to manipulate. Oh yes, I know, the good folk a Daesh do end up claiming that the perpetrator is one of them, but that really proves nothing (except maybe that Daesh is desperate to increase its notoriety).’
Thousands of ‘Merkel Must Go’ demonstrators marched through Berlin on Saturday waving banners reading: “No Islam on German soil” and “refugees not welcome”.
Police had to deploy tear gas as pro mass-migration demonstrators, cheered on by German politicians, tried to force their way through police lines and attack the right-wing protesters.
‘Hundreds of Australians protested Saturday against the maltreatment of minors in detention centers, less than a week after a shocking video emerged showing the abuse of aboriginal children in a prison in the Northern Territory.
Some 700 demonstrators filled the streets in Sydney to denounce the way Australian jailors treat young people in the detention centers, including hooding and physical restraint of teenagers, amid widespread criticism of the newly-surfaced case in Don Dale Youth Detention Centre.
Similar protests were also staged in Melbourne and elsewhere, as hundreds of people, most of them aboriginal, convened to call for justice for the teens.’
‘Radical activists released thousands of cockroaches, crickets and locusts at two outlets of Byron Hamburgers, a chain that helped the Home Office deport its migrant staff earlier this month. Protesters say they will bankrupt Byron if it doesn’t apologize.
The London Black Revolutionaries and the Malcolm X Movement forced the shutdown of the upmarket burger chain’s St. Giles and Holborn branches on Friday night by unleashing what they said were 8,000 crickets, 4,000 cockroaches, and 1,000 locusts in front of bemused customers.’
