    Kurdish fighters backed by US-led air strikes battled Islamic State jihadists for control of a key Syrian town Sunday and Turkey evacuated some border areas as mortar fire spilled over. IS fighters seized part of a strategic hill overlooking the town of Kobane late on Saturday, a monitor said, but their progress was slowed by new strikes from the coalition of Washington and Arab allies. A Syrian Kurdish official said IS fighters were just one kilometre from Kobane and air strikes are not enough on their own to stop them. The dusty border town has become a crucial battleground in...

    Flotilla of the disguised peace receives forceful defense of Turkey  By Julio Severo  Turkish government is mobilizing to have Israeli authorities judged by the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands, because Israel “dared” to inspect “humanitarian” ships destined to Palestinian Arabs. The ships, coming from Turkey, also contained hidden weapons, including rockets.  After all, how will Palestinian Arabs be able to continue their attacks against Israel without the “humanitarian” help of rockets and other weapons?   Turkey, a mostly Muslim nation that has a long history of shedding of Christian blood, got hysterical about the actions of Israel, which exposed...

    In case you hadn’t heard, there was a huge protest in Turkey on Sunday as reported by the Associated Press (h/t NBer Gary Hall and LGF, emphasis added throughout): At least 300,000 Turks waving the red national flag flooded central Istanbul on Sunday to demand the resignation of the government, saying the Islamic roots of Turkey's leaders threatened to destroy the country's modern foundations. Given the American media’s predilection towards never wanting to write or say anything that could possibly offend Muslims, an interesting question is raised regarding how they will report this story. Regardless of the answer, the article...

    Nine formations of Turkish warplanes made an equal number of air traffic rules infringements on Monday, which developed into five violations of national airspace in regions of the northern and central Aegean and to the east of the island of Rhodes, press reports said. Greek jets recognised and intercepted the 25 Turkish warplanes, while in six cases the interception process developed into an engagement.
