Netherlands to double places for asylum-seekers

***As Europe grapples with its biggest flow of migrants since World War II, the Dutch government is also freeing up a further 350 million euros ($370 million) for this year to help it meet the challenge.

An additional 42,500 spaces will be created for new asylum-seekers arriving in the country, of which 10,000 will only be available for three to six months.

“Given how many people are coming, it is inevitable that it will only be a modest welcome,” Prime Minister Mark Rutte told reporters Friday.

The latest poll says Donald Trump may finally have gone too far

It’s too early to say for sure that the Trump bandwagon has run out of steam, or even that it’s slowing down. There are many polls, which often conflict. More to the point, Trump has fallen out of first place in other polls a couple of times before, and each time he’s bounced back. In this latest poll, despite the drop, he remains well in the lead, with 31%—16 points ahead of his nearest rival, Ben Carson.

(*The GOP is 'Investing' in taking Trump out . The Reuters/Ipsos poll must have received a healthy pay out to produce these numbers )

An Invisible US Hand Leading to War? Turkey’s Downing of a Russian Jet was an Act of Madness

It is all terribly dangerous and it is hard to predict where things will lead.

This outrageous shootdown of a Russian plane that was in no way posing a threat to Turkey or Turkish forces, will not end here, because Russia and President Putin cannot allow Turkey and NATO to so blatantly act against Russia and its pilots and go unpunished, particularly as it is Russia that is acting legally in Syria, while the US, Turkey and other nations backing rebel forces there are in all acting blatant violation of international law.

Unless saner heads start prevailing in Washington, this could all quickly spiral into the kind of situation in 1914, where a lot of ill-conceived treaties led to a minor incident in the Balkans turning inexorably into World War I.

War Returns to Ukraine

Whilst all eyes are on Syria there has been a steady deterioration of the situation in Ukraine. In violation of the ceasefire shelling of the territories of the two people’s republics has resumed, and the OSCE has confirmed that the Ukrainian military has moved heavy weapons back to the contact line. The Ukrainians meanwhile have extended their ban of commercial flights to and from Russia by banning also transit flights. Ukraine has placed Crimea under food blockade. To the intense embarrassment of its Western backers (see this editorial in the Financial Times, headlined “Kiev should act to end the blockade of Crimea”) it has enlarged this to an energy blockade. Contrast this silence with the furious - and wrong - accusations regularly made in the West against Russia for its supposed use of energy as a political weapon. All of this is happening to a drumbeat of demands in the Ukrainian media for the country to renounce the Minsk II agreement...

Video: France Has Been Arming Syrian Jihadists since 2011

Eric Draitser of appears on TeleSur (Nov. 18, 2015) to discuss the Paris terrorist attack and its consequences for French foreign policy. Draitser explains that French intelligence has been working with terrorists in Syria, and that important questions about that collaboration should factor into the discussion of the terror attacks. He also notes that France faces very important foreign policy questions vis-à-vis cooperation with US or Russia in Syria.

The Accomplices Have Their Backs Against the Wall

NATO is extremely nervous, because it knows that the truth about the relationship of NATO-member Turkey to the Islamist terror group (IS) will come to light if there is a Russian victory in Syria. If the refugees are able to return, Erdogan won’t have them as a pawn to extort money [from the EU]. It’s clear who’s interested in an escalation of the conflict. The reaction of the Western alliance on the shooting down of a Russian bomber show that NATO is very nervous. It’s on the verge of losing control of Russia in Syria...

Putin Declares US, Turkey Guilty of Cooperating With Terrorists

“Look, we informed our American partners in advance when our pilots were going into action and where, in what air corridors. The American side, which leads the coalition, to which Turkey is also a party, knew about the location and time of our operation. And this is precisely where we were hit... We assume that this won’t happen again. Otherwise, we don’t need such teamwork with anyone, with any coalition or any countries...
Anyway, this is Turkey’s choice, not ours".

Decoding the Paris Attacks: ISIS Blowback or French-Israeli False Flag?

The truth is that President Hollande is a cynical charlatan who is conning his own population with audacious lies, and is, like his criminal counterparts in Brussels, London, Ottawa, Sydney and Washington, using staged terror to expedite the Zionist-Globalist agenda, of which he is a loyal servant.

Hürriyet columnist faces up to five years in prison for ‘insulting’ President Erdo?an

Daily Hürriyet columnist and former editor-in-chief Ertu?rul Özkök faces up to five years and four months in prison for “insulting” Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an in an opinion piece published on Sept. 3.

In an op-ed entitled “Listen, grand man” written after the tragic death of Aylan Kurdi, a three-year-old Syrian Kurdish refugee whose body washed ashore a Turkish beach, Özkök slammed Middle Eastern actors for turning the region into “the most brutal land in the world.”

Although Özkök did not mention anyone specifically, the article referred to a “dictator” who thought the country was the “property of his father.”

Experts: Turkey might be tried for financing ISIL, arms trafficking

Russia's pledge to take the issue of Turkey's alleged financing of terrorist factions within Syria -- such as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) -- to the United Nations after Turkey recently shot down its jet, has stirred speculation that Turkey could be tried in international courts.

Arrest of Turkish journalists over Syria trucks news sparks outrage

Looks like the Turkish people have had it with Erdogan. Coup or Civil war ahead...... or worse.

Domestic and international press institutions and political figures have condemned the Nov. 26 arrest of daily Cumhuriyet editor-in-chief Can Dündar and Ankara bureau chief Erdem Gül for their news report on Syria-bound intelligence trucks.

Turkey’s left-wing opposition has strongly condemned the arrest of two prominent journalists on charges of assisting terrorists, with the leaders of both the Republican People’s Party (CHP) and the Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) arguing the “unlawful” decision was personally imposed by President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an.

Flashback: Zionists call the shots in the Anglican Church

The archbishop’s website joyfully reported how he hobnobbed with the Chief Rabbinate, paid his respects to Yad Vashem and the holocaust, and talked with the president of Israel – the latter no doubt sniggering up his sleeve at his guest’s frustration at being prevented by Israel’s thugs from seeing what horrors they had inflicted on the Gazans.

Why did he agree to fraternize with Jewish political and religious leaders when his wish to carry out his Christian duty in Gaza was so rudely obstructed? Did Lambeth Palace not realize that meekly accepting such insults only served to legitimize the Israelis’ illegal occupation of the Palestinian territories and gave a stamp of approval to the vicious siege of Gaza, the ongoing air strikes against civilians, the persecution of Muslim and Christian communities, and the regime’s utter contempt for international law and human rights?

There was no mention of a get-together with senior Islamic figures, leaving a question-mark over Williams’s real commitment to interfaith engagement.

No more 'Mr. Nice Guy': Moscow's firm and swift response forever changes the Grand Chessboard

Moscow's firm and swift response forever changes the Grand Chessboard.

Events unfolded very quickly after the Turkish F16 fighter jet downed a Russian SU24 bomber over the Syrian territory, close to Turkish border. The act was characterised by Russian president Vladimir Putin as “backstabbing” on the part of the Turks. Russian authorities and the public are especially enraged because of the death of one of the pilots, and even more so by the videos of one of the pilot’s body being treated with utter disrespect by the Turkmen terrorists in Northern Syria - one of the groups that is well known for being backed by Turkey......
