Artist and Journalist Zehra Doğan Released from #Turkish Jail After Nearly Three Years. Doğan was imprisoned for propaganda after she depicted a predominately #Kurdish city destroyed by Turkish military forces in a watercolor painting. hyperallergic.com/486421/artist-…
“Art should never be a crime. Doğan is a model of courage for all journalists and artists for standing up against injustice and silence, especially because of her determination to work and create while incarcerated,” @PENamerican #Turkey #ZehraDogan
“While imprisoned, Doğan rigorously continued to work on her paintings using diverse media incl pomegranate shells, tincture of iodine, and bedsheets, despite restricted access to painting materials...she told BBC Turkish that she had never painted as much as she did in prison.”

My First #Sashimi since I left #USA 4.5 Months Ago. I love (Love x Love) #Turkish food BUT I also love #Japanese #Thai #Mexican #Vietnamese Cuisines. 4.5 Months is a LONG Time to Go Without Any Other World Food! Another Reason to Visit Big City #Istanbul Once-In-A-While;-)#Turkey
Not bad- nothing really special, but for the craving will do. Using Farm-Raised salmon was the main bummer (Tasteless!!). Seaweed salad a bit too sweet- not vinegary enough. Any how ... I guess this is the best I can get in #Istanbul as far as #Japanese food goes;-)
Soooo to make the long story short, had this been a mind-blowing-Ly good eat experience, then, I would have shared with you the name of the establishment. But in this case: I won’t;-)

3-Spending all its energy trying to legitimize its #occupation of #Syrian lands, #Turkey has resumed its efforts to stop the progress our forces have made in west #Kurdistan and to undermine the democratic and revolutionary development of our people.

I'm starting a new thread on the naẓar amulet for protection against the Evil Eye. Now, the Evil Eye and the symbolism surrounding it is a widely acknowledged and historically relevant phenomenon across many cultures, so I'm just going to focus on the blue-eyed glass talismans.
Our journey starts in ancient #Mesopotamia, where 100s of votive figures were found in the excavation of the temple of Tell Brak. The most exclusive feature of these idols were their eyes. These amulets go back to 3300 BC and are the oldest eye amulets discovered.
The Evil Eye is a common term to refer to a specific curse being cast, intentional or unintentional, by the jealous looks of others towards the success of the one they envy. The ocular amulet is than in fact the charm meant to ward off the true Evil Eye.

The Turkish state has always wanted to annihilate the Kurds in all four parts of Kurdistan. During the Saddam Hussein era, western allies implemented a no-fly zone in North Iraq (South Kurdistan) and South Iraq to protect the Kurds and the Shittes, respectively. 1/6
The Turkish state requested to fly over the N. Iraq airspace under the guise of protecting the Kurds, where in fact the Turks wanted to bomb & kill Kurdish civilians. They had already bombed and destroyed many Kurdish villages and towns in Turkey and Iraq. Massacring Kurds. 2/6
The USA must not leave North Syria or grant the Turks its airspace because their objective has not changed for they will massacre the Kurds and other minorities in that region. They demonstrated that all too well in the illegal invasion of Afrin in early 2018. 3/6

She used to lock #Kurdish children in Bathrooms for hours

She also says that organs of Kurdish children must be removed and be given to Turkish children.
This is a doctor working out there on the loose! With no honor or dignity.
Kurds in Sweden and Stockholm should bring her to justice!

High ranking #Turkish delegation (FM, Chief of Intel & more) is expected in #Russia after tomorrow to discuss Manbij.

Russia wants the Syrian army to take over all territories. Nevertheless, the US is insisting on "scheduled withdrawal". That means../+

That could mean the US wants to withdraw gradually from one area, deliver it to the Turks and move on to another to prevent the Syrian army from moving in.

Russia is standing in the way and doesn't accept Turkey to move in. /+
However, if the US won't give the area but to Turkey, then Turkey will take it first.

In the eyes of #Damascus and #Moscow, #Turkey is still better than the #USA. First the withdrawal & then we see.

But Kurds are also in Hmeymeen and Damascus talking. So all still on the table.

Thread: @arimelber asked me last night whether #TrumpShutDown was at all related to the pressure brought to bear by the #MuellerProbe. Let’s consider this more closely. It’s a distraction & attempt to show strength at a time that #Trump has been weakened.
First, #MuellerProbe will continue full steam ahead. It is funded and not impacted by #TrumpShutDown. The shutdown isn’t wise or good for anyone. So a shutdown only serves to help Trump if it makes him look strong and like a “winner” to his base. Wrong-headed But Trumpian logic.
Things to remember as we wake up to a partial #GovernmentShutdown: You will still get Medicare, Medicaid, SSI services. Dept of State, DOJ, DOT r among the agencies that will have to shut some activities. Homeland security won’t stop border enforcement, courts will operate.

If this is true, it is NOT soon enough and for that I am sorry. For all who have died at this regime's orders. If this is true, I am glad that the end of war may be near.

Ever wondered why #JamalKhashoggi’s case became so unnecessarily prominent in the media while the disappearance / possible murder of Head of #Interpol is barely visible? Strange, isn’t it ?
Here’s the answer in an excellent deep dive research by @PoliticalShort and @BPattySSG on @SecStudiesGrp tracks how it was done.
....
(For a month, Americans were being manipulated with details coming from “unnamed #Turkish sources.”)
securitystudies.org/khashoggi-case…
“The #Turkish government successfully used an information operation to elevate the case of #JamalKhashoggi’s disappearance into a major international incident with strategic implications.”

.@RT_Erdogan played his strategy brilliantly by releasing for weeks & on a daily basis fresh info related to #Khashoggi, attracting offers from #USA (panicking of the idea of losing a golden blackmailed resource/MBS) & from #SaudiArabia King Salman eager 2protect his criminal son
#Turkish President can always return to revive the #Khashoggi affair by releasing new evidence, filmed or taped, if he doesn't get what he was promised.
And what he was promised?

@RT_Erdogan ended, in his speech today, MBS responsibility and joined the "official Saudi version".
President @RT_Erdogan secured his demands, to my mind, when talking to @realDonaldTrump over the phone yesterday and with King Salman twice in a week.

The only hope for justice remains the Washpost & other media if these are willing to continue putting pressure on #SaudiArabia.

1-It’s very obvious that issue is not the disappearance of #JamalKhasoggi while Saudi is very concerned about the whereabouts and safety of Jamal. The story is much bigger than that The media hysteria and coordinated efforts by the leftist mainstream media, #Qatar and the leaks.
2- the mainstream Stream media is publishing stories based on Unverified leaks. I wonder why no one in the media contact Mr. #JamalKhoshoggi family or his ex wife or current wife. Why the Focus is only to the so called fiancé.
3- the amount of mess information coming out of #Turkey is very suspicious. 4 groups are working hard to destroy Saudi reputation, social and economic reforms. #qatar #MuslimBrotherhood #Turkey finally the international left.

#Khashoggi Case Thread: I am going to ‘pin’ this post to use it as an ‘Info Thread’ on the #Khashoggi Case. I am in #Turkey. I’ve been following the case closely and with access to sources & experts here. This is a very ‘sensitive’ criminal case due to ‘Diplomatic Booby Traps’!!!
The Evidence Obtained Outside Cameras will not show any evidence of ‘tempering’ but other than license plates of dozens of diplomatic cars (Many with tinted windows-large trunks) with related time stamp, drivers Info, model/year: Nothing.
#Turkish Intel-Investigative Bodies also have the list of all Diplomatic & Private Saudi & “other significant’ Planes in #Turkey for the period of ‘interest.’ Many of the Target airports have their own security cameras & related evidence.

1/ The #Saudi kidnapping of #Khashoggi reminds me of the kidnapping of #Hariri. It is meant to embarrass the other party, this time the gov of #Turkey, and provoke a diplomatic crisis. This is drug Cartel methods. It has no other goal than to assert power over the other.
2/ However, resorting to these methods to assert power in the political and international affairs sphere is always a sign of weakness and a sign of a power in crisis. #SaudiArabia

Preparations appear to be underway for a pro-#Assad offensive on #Idlib.

12hrs of on/off air & artillery strikes vs. southeastern & western #Idlib & northern #Hama - see marks on map (original by @ETANA_Syria + my additions).

+ multiple large pro-regime convoys moving north.
@ETANA_Syria #pt: If/when any major military campaign gets underway, expect the #Assad regime (+ #Russia & #Iran-backed militias) to focus on these 2 fronts:

1) West #Idlib (Jisr al-Shughour)
2) N. #Hama/#SE #Idlib (Latamineh, Khan Sheikhoun, Kafrazita)

-> a gradual push ‘inland’ & north.
@ETANA_Syria Very good by @theIRC’s @DMiliband:

- The West must “re-assert” itself & protect civilians in NW #Syria & as a backstop, safe-routes should be opened for civilians to flee into #Turkey.

- UNSC must demand full access to S #Syria; for aid, monitoring etc.
