editor 7 April 2018

By Herb Keinon.. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu charged Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday (April 1, 2018) with slaughter in the northern Syrian city of Afrin, taking off his gloves and responding in kind to Erdogan’s sharp criticism of Israel’s reaction to Friday’s (March 30, 2018) march in Gaza. “Erdogan is not used to people responding to him, but he should start getting used to it,” Netanyahu said. “Anyone who occupies northern Cyprus, invades the Kurdish strip and slaughters citizens in Afrin, should not lecture us about values and ethics.” (more…)

editor 6 September 2017

By Uzay Bulut.. Yazidis, Alevis and women in the region are also being abused by Turkish authorities, and dozens of Kurdish journalists who have publicized this have been imprisoned.

editor 27 October 2016

On two separate occasions, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan criticized the Treaty of Lausanne, which created the borders of modern Turkey, for leaving the country too small. He spoke of the country’s interest in the fate of Turkish minorities living beyond these borders, as well as its historic claims to the Iraqi city of Mosul, near which Turkey has a small military base.

editor 31 August 2016

By Walid Shoebat.. Today (August 24, 2016) major prophecy was fulfilled.
