TURKEY TRIED TO STOP SWEDISH BROADCASTER FROM AIRING ASSYRIAN GENOCIDE DOCUMENTARY……

With success in Germany, they think that they’re on a roll…..

And because it was the Swedes, you could understand how confident they were in achieving the desired result.

It reminds me of what the Iranian regime tried with ME analyst Alan Salehzadeh’s report citing Israel as region’s only democracy. It was placed back online after the JPost report highlighted the incident.

Turkey Attempted to Stop Broadcast of Assyrian Genocide Documentary

By Bar Daisan
(AINA) —
The Turkish Embassy in Sweden officially asked the Swedish television channel TV4 last week to not air a documentary on the Assyrian Genocide. The documentary Seyfo 1915 — The Assyrian Genocide by the director Aziz Said and produced by the Assyrian Federation of Sweden was scheduled to be aired on Sunday 24 April, the day Assyrians and Armenians commemorate the victims of the genocide perpetrated by the ruling Young Turks during the late phase of the Ottoman Empire.

TV4 received an email note from the Turkish Embassy, signed by Arif Gulen, the press counselor of the Turkish Embassy in Stockholm. The editors of TV4 published the note on the TV4’s media blog in Swedish and English.

The Embassy’s press officer asks the TV4 editors to reconsider airing the documentary, because “conventional wisdom suggests that broadcasting of a documentary film comprising one-sided views of ‘the 1915 events’ will fail to serve the principle of objectivity of broadcasting.”

The letter goes on stating that “there is no historical, academic or legal consensus on how to define ‘the 1915 events'” and that “only a competent international tribunal can determine whether a particular event is genocide.”

TURKEY: PARLIAMENT SPEAKER SAYS SECULARISM SHOULDN’T BE IN NEW CONSTITUTION……

Dr. Andrew Bostom has an excellent piece that I often refer to when talking about Turkey and its re-Islamization. This process started the day Kemal Ataturk started to feel ill. Uriel Heyd In 1968:

“Until a few years ago many foreign observers, including, I admit, myself, were inclined to think that this development [Turkey’s re-Islamization] was no more than a renewed expression of sentiments which for a long time could not be freely manifested and that the overall process of secularization was going on very slowly but irresistibly. Today I doubt whether this view is still tenable.”

Secularism shouldn’t be in Turkey’s new constitution: Parliament speaker

ANKARAAA photo

Secularism must not feature in the new constitution, Parliament Speaker İsmail Kahraman said on April 25, stressing that “as a Muslim country” Turkey’s constitution should be religious.

“As a Muslim country, why should we be in a situation where we are retreating from religion? We are a Muslim country. So we must have a religious constitution,” Kahraman said in a conference titled “New Turkey and New Constitution” in Istanbul.

“A description of secularism shouldn’t be in the new constitution. France, Ireland and Turkey have constitutions that include a description of secularism. But everyone interprets it the way they want to. That shouldn’t be the case,” he added, suggesting that the charter should “cohere with society.”

Kahraman referred to the constitutions penned in 1961 and 1982, claiming they are “religious constitutions” despite the fact that the word “Allah” does not come up in either of the texts.

“Both the 1961 and 1982 constitutions are religious. Religion classes are obligatory and this is based on faith,” he said.

Kahraman’s comments have been slammed by the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP), with party head Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu questioning the ruling Justice and Development Party’s (AKP) priorities.

£2.3bn to Turkey for NOTHING – Greece migrant route picks up pace as 150 arrive PER DAY

SOME 150 migrants are arriving in Greece per day despite a £2.3billion deal to slow the boatloads arriving on Europe’s shores.

Migrants arriving to Greece by seaGETTY

Nearly 150 migrants arrive in Greece per day

Turkey was handed the EU cash as part of a deal meant to stem the number of migrants.

Migrants arrive daily in Greece from Turkey, which is also sheltering about 2.5million refugees from neighbouring Syria, hoping to reach richer countries like Germany and Britain.

The multi-billion pound pact which came into force almost three weeks ago, aims to help end the chaotic arrival of migrants on the Greek islands.

But despite the number of arrivals initially slowing, boats carrying around 150 migrants a day have been making the journey to Greece.

The International Organization for Migration (IOM) said the “hermetic sealing” of the route appeared to be over as German Chancellor Angela Merkel flies to Turkey for crisis talks.

Mrs Merkel will pay a one-day visit with European Council President Donald Tusk to Gaziantep near the Syrian border on Saturday.

The two leaders are expected to go to a refugee camp for Syrians and meet Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu.

TURKEY’S Islamist government has stepped up its war on Christianity by seizing all the churches in one city and declaring them state property.

The Turkish government has seized six Christian churches

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has taken control of six churches in the war-torn southeastern city of Diyarbakir in his latest move to squash freedom of speech and religious movement.

The state-sanctioned seizure is just the latest in a number of worrying developments to come out of increasingly hardline Turkey, which is in advanced talks with the EU over visa-free travel for its 80 million citizens.

Included in the seizures are Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox churches, one of which is over 1,700 years old.

They have now effectively become state property – meaning they are run by the government – in a country with a dire human rights record where about 98 percent of the population is Muslim.

The order to seize the churches was made on March 25 by Erdogan’s council of ministers, according to the website World Watch Monitor.

They claim it was made on the grounds that authorities intend to rebuild and restore the historical centre of the city, which has been partially destroyed by 10 months of urban conflict between government forces and militants from the Kurdish Workers’ Party (PKK).

Russian President Vladimir Putin has issued a stark warning to the government of Turkey, saying that if they do not leave Syria alone he will restore Istanbul to Christendom. 

Addressing a delegation of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church Putin began by reiterating that nothing can severe the alliance Russia has with Ukraine, despite efforts by the ruling junta in Kiev.

Rising neo-Fascism in Ukraine is like the infectious Gangrene which can spread across the European continent , and we, the people of the Russian Federation and descendents of the Soviet Union , we are determined to stop this plague,” Putin told the crowd.

Former Shadow Home Secretary David Davis is horrified at the move

Not a single voter from the EU’s 28 member states – which have a total population of 508 million – has yet to vote in favour of Turkish membership.

But MEPs voted 375 – 133 to back the initiative by President of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades, who asked the Dutch EU Presidency to add Turkish to the bloc’s 24 official languages in order to boost attempts to reach a reunification agreement on the Mediterranean island.

The move, expected to add £25m to the EU’s annual budget, has infuriated critics who last night said it was further proof that Turkey’s accession to the EU was “all but guaranteed”.

They said that, although the European Commission would have to ratify the decision, earlier indicators were that dual pressures of Cyprus and Turkish accession would ensure it would be approved.

Isis has advanced plans to carry out a terror attack heavily targeting Jewish children in Turkey, according to intelligence officials.

Sky News reports that six operatives from the terror group, arrested in the Turkish city of Gaziantep last week, revealed information about an “imminent” attack.

Istanbul’s synagogue in Beyoglu is understood to be the most probable target of the allegedly impending attacks, which has a community centre and school attached to it.

Kindergartens, schools and youth centres for Jewish children are at the centre of the plans, according to reports.

An intelligence source told Sky News, “This is a more than credible threat. This is an active plot,” adding the information gathered from the operatives indicated an imminent attack that could be “in the next 24 hours or next few days”.

A suicide bomb attack at a major tourist shopping area in the Turkish city of Istanbul has killed at least four people, officials say.

Up to 20 were injured, some seriously, reports say.

The area – Istiklal Street – is reportedly crowded at weekends.

Last Sunday, an attack in the capital, Ankara, killed 37 people. A Kurdish militant group claimed that attack, saying it was in revenge for Turkish military operations against Kurds.

Last month, a bomb attack on a military convoy in Ankara killed 28 people and wounded dozens more.

Not only do they get 6 billion Euros for a crisis they created, they now get to fastrack themselves to negotiations on entrance into the EU.

They also get to send one for one ”refugees” to Europe, for everyone we kick out, they replace with another Turkish ”vetted” one. The revolving door continues as well as the Turks knowing that they can pull the same scam all over again when opportunity knocks.

  • EU leaders met in Brussels to agree deal to stop migrants reaching Europe
  • They agreed Turkey is vital in any deal aimed at stemming flow of migrants
  • Proposed measures to deport migrants to Turkey in return for concessions
  • Belgian leader said he will not accept what, at times, seems like ‘blackmail’

European Union leaders have agreed a plan to send tens of thousands of migrants back to Turkey and they will now put the measures to Turkish prime minister Ahmet Davutoglu.

The 28 EU leaders gathered in Brussels were assured the draft deal which they thrashed out overnight would not result in mass deportations.

Desperate to ease the pressure placed on European borders by more than a million migrant arrivals, the EU has turned to Turkey to help stem the flow of refugees into overburdened Greece.

The plan is to outsource Europe’s biggest refugee emergency in decades to Turkey, despite concerns over its asylum system and human rights abuses.

Twenty eight European leaders met to forge a plan before they met Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu tomorrow
