Wie wär es, man zahlte Putin, Khamenei und Assad (warum nicht auch dem zukünftigen Dialogpartner ISIS?) auch noch je drei Milliarden, damit sie einfach weniger Flüchtlinge produzieren?

The European Union and Turkey have settled on an additional 3 billion euros in funds to combat the influx of migrants to the bloc while also reaching a deal on visa-free in tough talks at an extended summit in Brussels on March 7.

Zurück auf der Straße

von Thomas von der Osten-Sacken

Aus Syrien:

Street protests erupted across insurgent-held areas of Syria on Friday, as demonstrators took advantage of the relative lull in airstrikes during a partial truce, coming out in the largest numbers seen in years to declare that even after five punishing years of war they still wanted political change.

Under the slogan “The Revolution Continues,” demonstrators waved the green, white and black pre-Baathist flag adopted during the early, largely peaceful stages of the revolt, before the proliferation of armed Islamist factions with black jihadist banners.

104 Demonstrationen gegen das Assad-Regime wurden heute in Syrien gezählt:

Statistics in Syria are usually depressing death tolls followed by ?#?HowManyMore?? Not today. 104 protests today across Syria calling for freedom & the downfall of the brutal Assad regime.

Russisch-Amerikanische Kooperation

von Thomas von der Osten-Sacken

Eine neue Partnerschaft:

To put it in even more concrete terms, the administration is leveraging Putin’s brutal military campaign to extract political concessions from the opposition that are tantamount to an effective surrender. And if they didn’t hurry and sign that surrender now, as Kerry reportedly told them, the Russian bombing is just going to get worse, and in three months, they’ll be decimated; the clock is ticking, folks. (…)

The United States is now partnering with Russia to line NATO’s southern border with a consortium of terrorist militias protected by Russian air power and armed with advanced weapons. The message is hard to miss: The old American security treaties, like NATO, that were once the cornerstone of global security arrangements, are barely worth the paper they are printed on.

Pakistanischer Kulturkampf

von Thomas von der Osten-Sacken

Islamistische Angst vor der Kolonialisierung:

The Women’s Protection Act, passed by Pakistan’s largest province of Punjab last week, gives unprecedented legal protection to women from domestic, psychological and sexual violence. It also calls for the creation of a toll-free abuse reporting hot line and the establishment of women’s shelters.

But since its passage in the Punjab assembly, many conservative clerics and religious leaders have denounced the new law as being in conflict with the Muslim holy book, the Koran, as well as Pakistan’s constitution.

“The whole law is wrong,” Muhammad Khan Sherani, the head of the Council of Islamic Ideology said at a news conference, citing verses from the Koran to point out that the law was “un-Islamic.” (…)

Fazlur Rehman, the chief of one of Pakistan’s largest religious parties, the Jamiat-i-Ulema Islam, said the law was in conflict with both Islam and the constitution of Pakistan.

“This law makes a man insecure,” he told journalists. “This law is an attempt to make Pakistan a Western colony again.”

Jubel in Benghazi

von Thomas von der Osten-Sacken

Libyans took to the streets in Benghazi on Tuesday, honking car horns and waving Libyan flags in celebration after army units, backed by civilian fighters, cleared a major part of this eastern city of Islamic extremists, following nearly two years of deadly fighting.

The rare celebration comes hours after troops earlier in the day pushed into the once populous district of al-Laithi, a stronghold of Islamic militias who withdrew within hours. Over the past days, the army had made important advances and on Monday took control of a strategic port and a hospital.

Later Tuesday, families displaced from al-Laithi flooded back into the district to revisit their homes while others first waited for soldiers to inspect their houses for booby traps. Residents posted photographs on social networking sites, showing tearful mothers bowing on the ground in front of their houses.

Others hugged their sons who returned from the front lines. Streets of al-Laithi were largely blocked by large containers and sand bags used as defenses. In some of the buildings, personal belongings of the militiamen and Islamic militants lay scattered about after they retreated hurriedly.

Medien hüben und drüben: Neues Kopfgeld auf Salman Rushdie

von Thomas von der Osten-Sacken

Gastbeitrag von Andreas Benl

Tage nachdem Amir Taheri und der iranische Nationale Widerstandsrat die Meldung verbreitet haben, sind nun auch die westlichen Qualitätsmedien ein wenig aufgewacht (in Deutschland bisher nur beim Perlentaucher):

Es gibt ein neues Kopfgeld auf Salman Rushdie, und ausgesetzt wurde es von vierzig staatlichen sogenannten Medien im Iran.

Forty state-run Iranian media outlets have jointly offered a new $600,000 bounty for the death of British Indian author Salman Rushdie, according to the state-run Fars News Agency.

Fars News Agency, which is closely affiliated with the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), was among the largest contributors, donating one billion Rials - nearly $30,000.

The announcement coincides with the anniversary of the fatwa issued the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the founder of the Islamic Republic, the agency said.

Ayatollah Khomeini, the First Supreme Leader of Iran, issued the fatwa against Rushdie on charges of blasphemy for his novel The Satanic Verses on 15 February, 1989. The Ayatollah called for the death of the book’s author along with anyone “involved in its publication".

Hitoshi Igarashi, the Japanese translator of The Satanic Verses, was stabbed to death outside his office at Tsukuba University, the Italian translator Ettore Capriolo survived being stabbed at his apartment in Milan, and the novel’s Norwegian publisher was shot three times in the back and left for dead outside his home in Oslo.

Die Ausnahme

von Thomas von der Osten-Sacken

Es gibt ein Land, das hin und wieder auch mal in Syrien  militärisch eingreift, anders als alle anderen Länder aber das einzige ist, dass, wenn es eingreift, die Hizbollah, andere iranisxhe Hilfstruppen oder die syrische Armee angreift, also jene “Achse des Widerstandes", die von allen anderen Ländern als Partner im Kampf gegen den Terror, wo nicht direkt unterstützt, so auf jeden Fall geschont werden:

“The Observatory for Human Rights says that three Israeli rockets have hit Syrian army outposts near Damascus, according to Reuters.”
