    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday called for calm and told Muslims protesting US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem to act in a democratic and lawful fashion. However, Erdogan also called Israel an "occupying state that usurped Palestinians' lands since 1967 with no regard to law or morality," and claimed Jerusalem was ...

    Turkey currently holds the chairmanship of the OIC. The recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and the moving of the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem -- expected to be announced by President Donald Trump later Wednesday -- would be a "grave mistake" against international agreements, Kalin warned. "Jerusalem is our honour, Jerusalem is our common cause, Jerusalem is our red line," he added, urging the Trump administration to "return from this grave mistake immediately". Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said the expected US move risked igniting a "fire" in the Middle East and will prove a "great disaster"....

    British police have been slammed for using public resources to produce a 12-minute video promoting Islam in the UK.“Muslims have a long, shared history with Britain. It stretches back over a thousand years,” claims Hafez Abdusammad Mulla of the Al-Imdaad Foundation at the opening of the “educational” film. Released by Lincolnshire Police on YouTube for Hate Crime Awareness Week, the video is ostensibly designed to fight “hate crime” and seeks to show Islam and Islamic culture in an attractive light.“Islam is all about virtues and values of charity, doing noble deeds, helping those less fortunate than you,” claims Mac Chishty, a police...

  • At the Temple Mount, it’s not about metal detectors, it’s about sovereignty

    timesofisrael.com ^ | 7/26/17 | Dov Lieber
    The Israeli government missed the point of Palestinian anger directed at metal detectors placed at entrances to the Temple Mount and, having misdiagnosed the situation, made a decision that failed to resolve the crisis and has only made it worse. At least, that’s what many of the Muslim protesters in the streets of Jerusalem’s Old City have been saying since the metal detectors were removed early Tuesday morning. Israel thought it was making a concession by removing the detectors, which were installed after three Arab Israelis carried out a shooting attack at the Temple Mount, killing two policemen with weapons...

    The German government urged Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday to respect its request that he not address Turks living in Germany when he attends this week’s Hamburg summit of the world’s 20 largest economies.Ties between Berlin and Ankara have soured over the past year due to disagreements on a range of political and security issues, including Turkey’s jailing of a German-Turkish journalist and its refusal to let German lawmakers visit German troops at a Turkish air base.Erdogan was also infuriated by what he called “Nazi era tactics” when some local German authorities, citing security concerns, barred Turkish politicians...

A court in Germany has authorized a group of self-appointed Sharia police to continue enforcing Islamic law in the city of Wuppertal. The law they were cleared of vioilating outlaws uniforms that are threatening, such as those of Hitler's brownshirts. The issue has been brewing ever since 2014, when German politicians reacted strongly to reports of young Salafists conducting nightly "Sharia police" patrols in the city, ordering people to stop various activities, according to the International Business Times.

    You’ve probably seen the video of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi announcing the creation of his caliphate in 2014. He made that announcement in an 850-year-old mosque known as the Grand al-Nuri Mosque in Mosul. Thursday, Iraqi troops recaptured the mosque, or what is left of it, and the Prime Minister declared the caliphate was over. From Reuters: “The return of al-Nuri Mosque and al-Hadba minaret to the fold of the nation marks the end of the Daesh state of falsehood,” Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said in a statement, referring to the hardline Sunni Mulsim group by an Arabic...

    A specter is haunting Europe - the specter of the Caliphate. The world of Quisling’s followers, barbarian colonizers and submissive or at best frightened murmuring herd - this is the Western Europe of the 21st century In 1975, he was 40 years old, and he was well-known already: his performances were popular; he was a member of the editorial board of a famous literary magazine. Any path was open before him, but he chose a different way.

    Saddam's Ambassador to al-QaedaBy Jonathan SchanzerWeekly Standard | February 23, 2004 A RECENTLY INTERCEPTED MESSAGE from Iraq-based terrorist Abu Musab al Zarqawi asking the al Qaeda leadership for reinforcements reignited the debate over al-Qaeda ties with Saddam Hussein's fallen Baath regime. William Safire of the New York Times called the message a "smoking gun," while the University of Michigan's Juan Cole says that Safire "offers not even one document to prove" the Saddam/al-Qaeda nexus. What you are about to read bears directly on that debate. It is based on a recent interview with Abdul Rahman al-Shamari, who served in...

    Because sometimes the gig just doesn't work out. Remember when it appeared that, contra a certain U.S. president and his “JV team” talk, ISIS was going to overrun the entire Middle East with virtually no resistance? Remember the harrowing stories of Iraqis gathering on a mountaintop waiting for someone to come and rescue them before ISIS showed up and set them on fire or committed some other murderous atrocity? We all saw that horrific videos of ISIS beheading, burning and drowning people. These evil sadistic monsters clearly observed no lines of decency and respected only sheer, brute force. Anyone who...

    As they used to say way back when in the long Ottoman twilight, the Turk is the sick man of Europe. Following this weekend's Caliph-for-Life referendum, the Turk is sicker than ever. But he's no longer of Europe, and instead is exiting for a destination dark and catastrophic for almost all his neighbors. Sultan ErdoÄźan - who, a mere 15 years ago, was banned from holding political office - has now succeeded in dismantling almost every defining element of the Kemalist republic. What replaces it will be a crude strongman state in service of Islamic imperialism. I have read a...

    Turkey, RIP: Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan appears to have won a narrow victory in a referendum giving him sweeping, near-dictatorial powers and essentially ending his nation's 98-year democratic experiment, unique in the Mideast. Starting with Turkish leader Kemal Ataturk immediately following World War I, as the final remnants of the Ottoman Empire were dismantled, Turkey had hewed closely to a mostly democratic, religiously secular, pro-Western government model. It was a model that worked. Turkey forged close ties with governments in Western Europe, in particular Germany, and sent hundreds of thousands of its workers there. Meanwhile, with the Soviet Union...

    US president Donald Trump called his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday to congratulate him on winning the referendum boosting his powers, the White House said on Monday. The call was first reported by Turkish state media, one day after Erdogan won over 51 percent in Sunday's vote. "Trump called Erdogan tonight (Monday) and congratulated him on his success in the referendum," Turkish presidential sources said, quoted by the government run Anadolu news agency. The reaction from Mr Trump contrasts with EU leaders who have been reserved in their reaction to the narrow victory while monitors expressed concern over...

    Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is claiming victory in a referendum that gives him extraordinary new powers. The vote - much closer than many anticipated - makes Erdogan a virtual dictator. Turkey, previously a nominal parliamentary democracy, will now embrace a presidential system of government, granting the chief executive the power to issue decrees and exercise authority previously reserved for the legislature. ***SNIP***It's hard to overstate the incredible transformation of Turkey over the last decade under Erdogan's rule. The country has gone from a secular democracy to a full blown Islamist state. Erdogan has cleansed the bureaucracy, the army, cultural...

    On Sunday, Turkish voters voted by 51% to 49% to abolish the office of the Prime Minister and to grant president Erdogan sweeping powers. The referendum included 18 constitutional changes and will go into effect by Turkey's next general election in 2019. Opponents of Erdogan have called the results fraudulent and have vowed to challenge the outcome in court. It is not the first time the Turkish government has been accused of committing fraud in national and regional elections.
