There are no do-overs in history, but there are lessons. The 1979 hostage crisis should have taught us the importance of proactively responding to obvious threats and removing vulnerable targets — a lesson that should be applied now if there are U.S. nuclear weapons based in Turkey.
After a faction within the Turkish military tried to overthrow the Turkish government in July 2016, one of the many arrested for his alleged role in the attempted coup was a commanding officer at the Incirlik Air Base. That base — according to numerous media reports — is a major NATO installation hosting one of the largest stockpiles of nuclear weapons in Europe.
Gokhan Acikkolu was a teacher of history. As many people, he was detained on charge of being Gulen Fallower on July 23,2016. He died under police custody. He died without even knowing what he was accused of.
Teacher Gökhan Açıkkollu, who was tortured to death while in police custody, was found innocent one-and-a-half years later and “reinstated” to his job.
Fell sick over diabetes and harsh treatment the teacher was taken to a hospital. Doctors declared him well and sent him back to custody. Several days later, badly wounded and seriously ill teacher died under custody.

Watch here the Coca Cola Ramadan ad from 2018. To commemorate the Muslim holy month, Coca-Cola Norway has added Islamic symbolism to their flagship beverage. While the contents of the soda bottles remained unaltered, many have voiced their displeasure with what has been perceived as political correctness gone too far.
In connection with the Islamic month of fasting, Ramadan, Coca-Cola Norway has launched a nationwide campaign featuring its recognisable logo adorned with a crescent moon, an important symbol in Islam.
While celebrating Ramadan has been a long tradition for Coca-Cola in Muslim countries, this is the first time it has donned Islamic imagery in the Scandinavian nation, where it previously only used to have Christmas campaigns.

If the Muslim Brotherhood is declared a terror organization, Turkey would be much affected. The extent of the problems Turkey would face depends on the scope of the bill the Trump administration might draft. The critical question is, will only the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood be added to the blacklist, or all the organizations affiliated with it?
Although the organization’s generic name in Egypt and Syria is the Muslim Brotherhood, the movement operates under different labels in other foreign countries: al-Nahda in Tunisia, Islamic Action Front in Jordan, Hamas in Palestine, Iraqi Islamic Party in Iraq, Social Action for Peace in Algeria and National Islamic Front in Sudan. The movement is known as Reform in Bahrain, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Yemen and Somalia.

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russia’s naval fleets have been severely neglected. Corruption, defense budget shortfalls, and higher military priorities are among the factors that have prevented the modernization and buildup of the Russian navy. Of the four separate naval fleets—the Baltic, Black Sea, Northern, and Pacific Fleets—Russia’s Black Sea Fleet remains one of the most neglected and obsolete. The 2008 Russo-Georgian war revealed to Russia the need to modernize and increase the size of its Black Sea Fleet, which was reinforced during the 2014 Russian annexation of Crimea when NATO naval presence increased in the region.

At only fifteen minutes, this is the shortest film I've ever watched but it's one of the most powerful. Though many regard it is a dark comedy, I see it as a horrific scream of terror that deals with the guilt and shame of a man who observed passively as genocide was being committed directly in front of him. The sound of screams at the start of the film and at the end haunt my mind every time I think of the film.

Ramadan is for reducing economical expenditure or economical pressure by practicing self-restrain or reducing personal luxury, lusts, or comfort etc. But in reality, Muslims do just the opposite.
Muslims who are fasting during this month of Ramadan, practice a total orgy of eating more delicacies, of course during night instead of day time.
A typical fasting Muslim consumes double the amount of most nourishing and delicious and luxurious food items compared to his regular eating habits during other times. Monthly expenditures for a typical family duly increase 2-3 times during Ramadan.

In what might be the biggest news of the week, the New York Times has published a bombshell report revealing Joe Biden’s shady connection to a Ukrainian corruption scandal.
According to a report from The New York Times, reporter Kenneth P. Vogel provided new details about Hunter Biden’s connection to a Ukrainian political corruption scandal.
The details emerged as the Ukrainian government recently reopened an investigation into a company which once paid Hunter Biden roughly $50,000 a month.
That company, Burisma Holdings, is currently being probed by Ukraine’s top prosecutor.
Ekrem Imamoglu is an even-tempered and articulate man in his late 40s. He was the mayor of a lower-income district in Istanbul, Beylikduzu, where locals liked the municipal services and the parks and green spaces that he created. Istanbul is a bustling metropolis of 16 million, with heavy traffic and miles of concrete. Its citizens are desperate for anything that resembles a tree. (The massive anti-government uprising of 2013 was a response to a plan to turn a downtown public park, Gezi, into a shopping mall.) Imamoglu won by simply promising a more livable city.

Erdogan is writing checks the Turkish economy can’t cash. The collapsing lira has made Turks substantially poorer. Compared to a decade ago, it takes roughly three times as many liras to buy a dollar’s worth of goods from abroad. And Turkey is a relatively trade-dependent economy, so the decline in the exchange rate hurts.
Turkey’s government is doing little to stop that slide. True, it has hiked its main interest rate from 8 percent a year ago to 24 percent today. That may sound high, but it is only barely above the inflation rate and is substantially below where it would need to be to stabilize the lira.
Mario Andretti gives Donald Trump a ride through the streets of New York City.
This was on President Trump's highly acclaimed TV show the Apprentice, before he became President. This was also way back before the Liberals tried to destroy him.
Same people back then, were on his TV show. Raised money for him, took money from him, stayed in his hotels, bought his real estate, and penthouses. Played golf at his courses, wanted him to speak at their engagements, partied with him. Hang out with him, and say they knew him. Took his college courses to get a degree without bitching, etc.. He became President Trump, and Libturds came unglued!

The UK needs a more cohesive society and there’s an old-fashioned name for that: Patriotism. The intellectuals sneer at the patriotic working class but they’ve got a better handle on the culture wars we are facing – and we should follow their lead.
Re-release of a clip I created and uploaded to my YouTube and LiveLeak channels in 2012. After LiveLeak removed the clip and deleted my video channel, YouTube followed in April 2019.This clip was deleted by YouTube and my video channel was blocked. The reason? HATE SPEECH, but the clip looks here much better now.

No, the Problem in London is not ‘Islamist Extremism’
Islamists want to impose sharia law on the West — which means all Islamists are ‘extremists.’
The Western schizophrenia about radical Islam is on full display in Britain, in the aftermath of the latest jihadist atrocity, the third in just the past three months.
Three terrorists, on June 3, 2017, rammed a van into a crowd on London Bridge and then went on a stabbing rampage, brutally assaulting pedestrians while braying that each blow was struck “for Allah.”
A duly outraged Theresa May donned her prime-minister hat to announce that her government is “leading international efforts to take on and defeat the ideology of Islamist extremism around the world.”
The real ‘Butcher of the Balkans’ was NATO
More than 20 years after the Srebrenica massacre, Bosnian Serb General Ratko Mladić was found guilty of war crimes by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and sentenced to life in prison on November 22, 2017.
Along with Mladić, the ICTY convicted the other so-called “Butcher of Bosnia”, the Bosnian Serb and former Republika Sprska leader Radovan Karadžić to 40 years imprisonment on March 24, 2016. On July 22, 2016 he filed an appeal against his conviction. The appeal was rejected on March 20, 2019 and the sentence was increased to life imprisonment.

Female genital mutilation, usually associated with Africa, the Middle East and South-East Asia, is a growing problem in Europe. Despite criticism, the barbaric practice is thriving with more immigrants coming to Europe.
The operation, in which parts of a girl’s clitoris and labia are cut off, causes urine retention, infertility and death, and those lucky enough to survive such a process will never enjoy sexual relations.

Summer Holiday is 'Cutting Season' in Somalia
During the summer holiday thousands of migrant families travel with their young daughters to their native countries to undergo female genital mutilation.
FGM is banned in most countries, but it's still legal in Somalia, which - together with the rest of Somalia - has the highest rate of female genital mutilation in the world. Over 90 percent of girls in Somalia are cut by traditional cutters, most of whom have no medical training.
Joe Biden's skin-crawling touching of little girls and grown women
“He leaned further in and inhaled my hair. I was mortified. I thought to myself,... And also, what in the actual fuck? Why is the vice-president of the United States smelling my hair?” He proceeded to plant a big slow kiss on the back of my head. My brain couldn’t process what was happening....” I couldn’t move and I couldn’t say anything. I wanted nothing more than to get Biden away from me. My name was called and I was never happier to get on stage in front of an audience.
... I had never experienced anything so blatantly inappropriate and unnerving before. The vice-president of the United States of America had just touched me in an intimate way reserved for close friends, family, or romantic partners — and I felt powerless to do anything about it. ---Lucy Flores

Americans truly need to understand that this will affect you one day if you don’t make a change right now.
If you don’t know, I highly advise you to take a trip to Minnesota’s 5th district and you will see what’s happening. You won’t even think you’re in America.

What's the plan here? Only Muslim officers will work in Muslim areas? Only black officers will work in black areas? Is that the goal? Surely a police officer, no matter his background, should be trained to the same level of ability and competence and have the authority to police any area. Right?
If that's not the case, surely eyebrows must be raised. Hey, maybe this multiracial, multicultural Utopia where different ethnic groups segregate themselves into slums and effectively colonize parts of Britain. Maybe this isn't working out too well.

More than a century after 48 000 people died in concentration camps in what’s known as the South African War between 1899 and 1902 – or the Anglo-Boer War – the events of that period are back in the headlines.
The camps were established by the British as part of their military campaign against two small Afrikaner republics: the ZAR (Transvaal) and the Orange Free State.
The scandalous campaign is back in the news following controversial comments by British Conservative MP Jacob Rees-Mogg on a BBC television program.
Rees-Mogg’s statements have caused consternation because they were riddled with inaccuracies. It’s time to set the record straight and to refute his inaccuracies one by one. I do this based on the historical research I’ve done on the South African War for the last 49 years.

Rape should not even happen in this world but when it does, it’s usually behind doors, or in dark alleys. ‘Taharrush Jamai‘, Taharrush meaning ‘collective harassment’ in Arabic is a practice where women are openly raped or sexually assaulted by large crowd of men in a barbaric manner.
These offenders are bolder because they feel safe in numbers. As these occurrences take place in very large crowds, the offenders usually go unpunished as it would be difficult to determine who did what.
As the mercury rises in Iran, winter coats are back in the closet, flowers are popping up — and so are the so-called morality police.
Tehran's police have announced up to 7,000 undercover officers will be on the lookout for those who don't follow conservative Islamic modes of dress and behavior.

I am an activist!
Activism is defined as: "the policy or action of using vigorous campaigning to bring about political or social change".
As an activist, I use my blog, my videos and the collective voice of others, to bring about change. I do not stay silent when others are being oppressed and when the rights of others are being neglected.
