“Start Throwing Rocks”: Washington Post Op-Ed Calls For More Violence In The Streets

So how did we get to this place? How did we reach a point where America resembles Wiemar Germany, with white nationalists and socialist thugs battling it out on the streets and killing people?

If I were to pick one culprit for this mess, it would be the mainstream media. They’re the ones who have, for the most part, stood behind leftist ideologues for decades, and allowed them to bury public discourse under a wave of identity politics. They are at the very least, partly to blame. They’ve helped stoke divisions in this country that were once faint, or in the process of healing.

And if you don’t think the mainstream media is responsible for nudging our country towards war in the streets, then you should read this op-ed that was recently published by the Washington Post. It was written by N.D.B. Collins, an associate professor at Johns Hopkins University. In it, he appears to shamelessly call for the left to spawn more riots and violence in this country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This definitely smacks of Deep State manipulation, in order to see more unrest, which ultimately will result in President Trump being pressured to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and establish martial law, nationally.

More violence will only beget more violence; I cannot believe, for one moment, that Dr. N.D.B. Collins really believes this is the right path to follow.

But agents of the Deep State can come from surprising backgrounds, and have some interesting agendas.

It appears that whoever is sponsoring this article at the Washington Compost, is hoping such violence will have President Trump invoke martial law, so that
the warmongers in President Trump's cabinet, can get their wars on, with even peaceful protest forbidden.

LA Metro Begins Pilot Program for Full Body Scanners Funded by Bill Gates

By Nicholas West

Once again it appears that airports are a test bed for nearly everything that will eventually trickle out into the general public. Whether it’s TSA VIPR teams on trains, or the emergence of biometric ID, the continuous reinforcement of an imminent and pervasive threat has people scrambling to give up their freedom for their ever-elusive security.

Although airport body scanners have been much maligned for their negative health effects from millimeter wave technology, as well as their thoroughly intimate invasion of privacy, it’s not stopping Los Angeles from rolling out a pilot program of the $60,000-per-unit scanners which began on Wednesday...

Conspiracy or Chaos: “The Farce Of Competing Political Parties Is A Smoke Screen Used By The Deep State To Maintain Their Control” - James Quinn

It ultimately comes down to power and control over the key mechanisms of finance, taxation, legislation and the media. There isn’t one specific group of conspirators working together to rule the world. Is George Soros attempting to influence and control what happens in the U.S. and Europe to benefit his interests? Yes. Are the Koch brothers attempting to do the same with a different end goal? Yes. Are Pelosi and Schumer conspiring to push their left wing agenda? Yes. Are McConnell and Ryan conspiring to implement their establishment vision? Yes.

Socrates discusses death of democracy, hubris of empire, devolution to civil war. ‘We the People’ of the US’ choice: follow that path OR demand .01% arrests for OBVIOUS crimes of war, looting, lying

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“The strong do what power allows. The weak accept what they must.” – Athenian 415 BC envoy to the small government of Melos, with the offer to either join Athens’ empire with paying them tribute, or have all men executed, and everyone else sold into slavery. Melos politely declined Athens’ offer. Athens attacked, did exactly what they threatened, and resettled the emptied island with 500 Athenian colonists. – Melian Dialogue of Socrates’ contemporary historian, Thucydides.

language warning: Socrates and I speak in the same direct language that caused his execution for “corrupting the young.”

With potential threat of US civil war, perhaps staged by .01% oligarchs fearing their discovery and arrests, let's consider Socrates' analysis to a similar challenge. He explains from my 2016 "interview" with him:

NDP moves to end secret Klein-era scheme to offload corporate losses on the public

No one should be surprised that as its final decade approached, Alberta's Progressive Conservative government cut a secret and illegal deal with a small group of electricity marketing companies to let them leave the province's consumers holding the bag for billions of dollars in the event the dice ever failed to roll their way.

Indeed, no one is very surprised, as you can tell from reading between the lines of the oh-so-cautious mainstream media coverage of the NDP Government's lawsuit, launched in the Alberta Court of Queen's Bench yesterday, to invalidate a secretly negotiated clause in Tory-passed legislation that allowed corporations to offload business losses in the electricity market onto the public.

Young Turks Bought Up by Clinton/Obama Backers, Vulture Capitalists and unDemocratic Party “kingmaker” for $20 Million

Cenk Uygur is trying to play it cool, telling his followers this is not a big deal when in fact it is. Well, Cenk has been a tool of the establishment, trying to pretend he isn’t for years. His Youtube empire, the Young Turks, was started with seed money from a centrist republican years ago and Cenk has been pushing the centrist message ever since. You have to remember, when Cenk was on MSNBC he spread Clinton’s lies about Gaddafi on a daily basis, doing his level best to convince progressives to tacitly support her illegal and immoral regime change operation in Libya. And he’s done the same shit ever since.

So Cenk Uygur has always been a sellout piece of shit… now he’s just sold out more.

British singer Robbie Williams puzzles Lithuanians by saying 'spasibo'

British singer Robbie Williams performed in Vilnius, Lithuania, with this "The Heavy Entertainment Show." Local media drew attention to the fact that during the performance of the song "Party Like a Russian" Robbie Williams said the Russian word "spasibo" ("thank you") several times to everyone's surprise in the audience. According to Lithuanian website lrytas.lt, Williams did not think to express his gratitude to his audience by saying "thank you" in Russia. The Russian word is part of the lyrics of the song. Delfi website suggested that the Russian word from the mouth of the British singer could embarrass the audience during the concert. Journalists of the website assumed that those concert-goers, who were not familiar with the song, could find the artist's behaviour confusing, RIA Novosti reports. Williams's video for the song "Party Like a Russian" caused a controversy in Russian media outlets and social media.

Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Russia’s 4 dreadest military inventions

These weapons weren’t ever used in combat. Let’s hope they never will... TOS-1 Buratino is heavy flame-throwing system. Like the fairy-tale character, Buratino, (the Russian version of Pinocchio), this system can push its “nose” into any hole. The vehicle is based on the T-72 tank. Instead of a gun mount, however, it features 30 tubes (220-mm caliber) capable of unleasing a hurricane of fire in just a few seconds; the missiles contain a thermobaric mixture that literally smash shelters and troops into smithereens with shock, fire and shrapnel. The real hell begins afterwards, however. The thermobaric charge in each projectile creates an “air-mixture cloud” that explodes, creating pressure at a temperature of around 3,000 degrees Celsius, consuming all the surrounding oxygen and collapsing the pressure. It does not take a vivid imagination to guess what happens to anyone inside this cloud.

Declining US urgently seeks to maintain imperial grip: “if Venezuela falls, humanity falls”

North Korea have long been the fly in the ointment, with United States officials dearly wishing they could overthrow Kim Jong-un and install a client regime. Unfortunately for American elites, the Kim Jong-un government both loath and fear the declining superpower and its long-held imperial ambitions. Can the North Koreans be blamed for these feelings? Its leader Kim Jong-un must be aware of the horrendous crimes the US military perpetrated against his country during the Korean War (1950-53). After the first year of the conflict all notable buildings in North Korea had been utterly levelled by the US Air Force. By the end American fighter pilots had committed further war crimes such as destroying a number of North Korea’s dams – the type of offence people were hanged for at Nuremberg. To rub salt into open wounds, the Americans gloated about the bombing of the dams which destroyed thousands of acres of rice crops – as the “Asians” scurried about trying to survive.

Yesterday, Syria accused the US and UK of providing chemical weapons materials to terrorists in the country, a move Syria also seeks to have condemned by the UN. In a statement presented to the UN, the Syrian government has said, “Syria calls again on the UN Security Council to fulfull its obligations for the sake of peace and security, and to stop the crimes of the US-led coalition against Syrian citizens”, The statement continued, “(The actions of the US and its allies) have become systematic. The coalition neglects the basics of international law, international humanitarian law and human rights”. On Wednesday of this week alone, US airstrikes killed 19 Syrian civilians, something the government finds totally unacceptable, especially as all US actions in the country are illegal according to international law.

America refuses to pause military drills in South Korea

A day after Donald Trump praised North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un for his “wise and well-reasoned” response to the current crisis, the chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staf Joseph Dunford, has said something that is both unwise and unreasonable. While in Beijing working on establishing a communications hotline with China in order to avoid future conflicts, Dunford said something which demonstrates that the United States is continuing to ignore China and Russia’s joint request to cease all military drills and missile tests in and around South Korea. When asked if the US still intends to go through with its scheduled drill in South Korea, Dunford stated, “My advice to our leadership is that we not dial back our exercises. The exercises are very important to maintaining the ability of the alliance to defend itself. As long as the threat in North Korea exists, we need to maintain a high state of readiness to respond to that threat”.

Syrians Are Going Home: Western Backed Terrorists Brought Nothing but Weariness, Poverty and Death

In Jaramanah, Damascus we met with many internally displaced people. The estimated 6.4 million IDPs in Syria have almost invariably, fled to Syrian government controlled areas for refuge from the US Coalition extremist factions who have driven them from their hometowns and villages across Syria. This area had historically been Druze and Christian populated. Now it has been crowded with Syrians from all walks of life, backgrounds and regions. All spoke to me of their hardship under the US Coalition armed & funded extremist & terrorist factions. Many had been driven from their homes by the armed mercenary forces, suffering hideous wounds in the process. One old man from Talbiseh in Homs had lost one leg, been shot in the spine and had his remaining foot crushed by the Nusra Front brigades who had invaded his village and driven inhabitants from their homes by force. He was selling bread on the street, provided by his wife, to pay for an apartment with no roof.

"Iran has achieved defense deterrence power and the enemies acknowledge Iran’s high defense power in the region and the world," he stressed.

Secret Service investigating Mo. state senator over Facebook post hoping for Trump's assassination

The U.S. Secret Service is investigating a Facebook post from Missouri state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, D-University City, in which she stated: "I hope Trump is assassinated!"

As outrage over the comment spread Thursday, a top leader in Chappelle-Nadal's own party declared that Chappelle-Nadal "should be ashamed of herself."

Chappelle-Nadal's comment, referring to President Donald Trump, has since been removed. But Chappelle-Nadal confirmed to the Post-Dispatch that she had written it in response to another commenter before deleting it.

He left the van and ran off through the neighboring marketplace. The center of the city has been cordoned off by the police. So far the latest information from the Spanish healthcare services indicates that 56 people have been taken to hospitals. Ten people are considered as seriously injured. A second van believed to have possibly been rented by the same man who perpetrated the attack has been found by police in the nearby town of Vic.

Condi Rice Destroys Liberals With a History Lesson About Slavery

After what happened in Charlottesville, the topic is especially timely, which is why Fox and Friends host Brian Kilmeade immediately asked her an important question: “I want to talk about where your book starts, and that’s our Constitution. As an African-American woman, do you see yourself in this Constitution? Do you think that, when we look at nine of our first twelve presidents as slave owners, should we start taking their statues down and say, we’re embarrassed by you?”

Without hesitation, Rice fired back: “In a word, No.” She continued, “I am a firm believer in ‘keep your history before you.’ So I don’t actually want to rename things that were named for slave owners. I want us to have to look at those names, and realize what they did, and be able to tell our kids what they did and for them to have a sense of their own history.”

Then, she added, “When you start wiping out your history; sanitizing your history to make you feel better? It’s a bad thing.”

SYRIAN WAR REPORT – AUGUST 17, 2017: IRAN BUILDS LONG-RANGE MISSILE FACTORY IN SYRIA

Government forces, led by the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) captured more points north of the Sunbul gas station in the Ayn Tarma area in eastern Damascus. The advance came amid intense shelling of Faylaq al-Rahman positions in Ayn Tarma and Jobar conducted by the SAA 4th Armoured Division with “Volcano” and “Golan” heavy rockets.

Faylaq al-Rahman claimed that its members killed 17 SAA troops and damaged an SAA T-72AV battle tank in the recent clashes and once again accused the government forces of using chlorine gas in the area.

The chemical weapons usage accusations are a common part of PR strategy of any anti-government forces around Syria. The accusations have become especially frequent after the US missile strike on the Syrian Air Force’s Shayrat Air Base that followed the incident at Khan Shaykhun.

Who Keeps Americans in the Dark?

Earlier this week, senior Tablet magazine writer Yair Rosenberg pointed out in a Washington Post article that the White nationalists who gathered in Charlottesville, Virginia targeted the Jews.

“ They (the White Nationalists) immediately went after the Jews,” Rosenberg writes. They “chanted anti-Semitic and Nazi slogans, including “blood and soil” and “Jews will not replace us” — all crafted to cast Jews as foreign interlopers who need to be expunged. The attendees proudly displayed giant swastikas and wore shirts emblazoned with quotes from Adolf Hitler. One banner read, “Jews are Satan’s children.”

This is an important and genuine observation by Rosenberg. He suggests that the white nationalists are fully aware that that they are in a battle with ‘the Jews.’ The Jews also seem to acknowledge that they are at war with the White Nationalists and that this broad category includes the American President* who according to the Jewish press took side with the ‘Nazis’.

The loans often charged annual percentage rates of 200 percent and extended for as long as 10 years.

Chaos in Charlottesville: No One Gave Peace a Chance, Including the Police

Let’s be clear about one thing: no one—not the armed, violent, militant protesters nor the police—gave peace a chance during the August 12 demonstrations in Charlottesville, Va.

What should have been an exercise in free speech quickly became a brawl.

It’s not about who threw the first punch or the first smoke bomb.

It’s not about which faction outshouted the other, or which side perpetrated more violence, or even which group can claim to be the greater victim.

One young woman is dead because of the hate, violence, intolerance, racism and partisanship that is tearing this country apart, and it has to stop.

Racist Quote by Abe Lincoln (Happy Black History Month!)

Abraham Lincoln Quote

“I will say then that I am not, nor ever have been in favor of bringing about in anyway the social and political equality of the white and black races – that I am not nor ever have been in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say in addition to this that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And inasmuch as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race. I say upon this occasion I do not perceive that because the white man is to have the superior position the negro should be denied everything.”

Russia’s FSB Says It Foiled Moscow Terror Plot

Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) said on Monday it had detained four people suspected of plotting terror attacks on Moscow’s public transport system and major commercial centers.

In a statement on its website, the FSB said it had uncovered a terror group in the Moscow region which was planning to commit "a series of terror attacks in crowded places, including transport sites and large commercial centers.”

The FSB also said it had shut down a bomb-making lab on the outskirts of Moscow.

North Korea gives US a clear choice: Restraint or missile launches

US President Donald Trump implied in one of his latest tweets that he forced North Korea to back down over its threat to Guam. It's a dangerous misperception that could cause the crisis to escalate and Trump to miss what could be the best chance he will have to halt the tests of missiles that can now threaten the American homeland.

Anxious about annual US-South Korea military exercises that begin next week, Pyongyang has presented the United States with a clear, coercive choice: reduce tensions or face a highly destabilizing missile strike to the waters around Guam.

US War Games Likely to Trigger Another North Korea Missile Test - Seoul

Tensions on the Korean Peninsula appeared to ease up following intense saber-rattling by the US and North Korean sides last week, but once Pyongyang’s leaders observe the US ramping up war games again, another ballistic missile test may be imminent, Seoul warns.

Ulchi Freedom Guardian drills are slated to commence on Monday, Korean media reported Wednesday. "There is a great possibility that North Korea will carry out strategic or tactical provocations to protest the latest UN sanctions and the UFG exercises," the South Korean Defense Ministry said in a statement to the nation’s lawmakers.

Military exercises in which US forces essentially rehearse and practice attacking the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) "are not funny to [North] Korea," Radio Sputnik Loud & Clear host Brian Becker said Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, a logical question here: how in heaven's name can Kim Jung Un NOT see US war games, right off the cost of North Korea, practicing how to invade his country, as a "dangerously provocative act"?!?

And frankly, I do not have a good answer for this.

The West Supplied Chemical Weapons to Syrian Rebels, Says Russian Foreign Ministry

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday there is evidence that the West is supplying chemical weapons to militants in Syria.

“Yes, it’s true,” she told the state-funded Vesti FM radio station on Thursday morning. "Western countries and regional powers are directly and indirectly supplying militants, terrorists and extremists in Syria with banned toxic substances.”

The comment came after Syria’s Deputy Foreign Minister Faisal Mekdad said on Wednesday that chemical weapons supposedly produced by the United States and Britain had been found in areas previously held by Islamic State.*

Trump calls removal of Confederate monuments 'so foolish'

President Donald Trump on Thursday denounced the removal of monuments to Confederate figures as "sad" and "so foolish," days after white supremacists and neo-Nazis took to Charlottesville, Virginia, to violently protest the planned removal of a statue of the Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

"Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments," Trump said in a series of tweets. "You can't change history, but you can learn from it."

Who was responsible for the violence in Charlottesville? Here's what witnesses say

The clashes that broke out over the weekend at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., have become a new touchstone in the nation’s long-running debate over racism, free speech and violence.

One woman was killed and many more injured when a car, allegedly driven by a rally participant, sped into a crowd of anti-racism protesters. Two state troopers monitoring the action died in a helicopter crash later in the day, though no foul play was suspected.

The event quickly took on enormous political importance as Democrats and Republicans alike denounced the violence and the white supremacist views espoused at the far-right rally. President Trump has also denounced the racist groups, but he suggests that anti-racism counter-demonstrators share some of the blame. On Tuesday, he said “both sides” were responsible for the bloodshed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In looking/listening at the reports of this incident, President Trump was absolutely correct in his assessment; both the Neo-Nazis and Antifa bore responsibility for the deaths and injuries here.

ARE THESE GMO MEATLESS BURGERS SAFE TO EAT? THE FDA ISN’T SURE

The FDA informed the manufacturer of Impossible Burger – a meat-like burger made using only plants – that it had not yet proven that the product’s key genetically modified (GM) ingredient is safe for consumption. The company, Impossible Foods, decided it knew better and launched the product anyway. [1}

The GMO faux-meat burgers are available at 43 restaurants nationwide, including several burger chains.

Impossible Foods maintains that its SLH/heme is identical to the SLH already in the food supply, but Impossible Foods had no safety testing data to support that claim, said Michael Hansen, a senior scientist at Consumers Union.

Hansen explained:

“You are taking something that has never been in the food supply before and you come to the FDA, say it is GRAS, and you have no safety data, particularly from feeding studies. Their argument has literally come down to saying this is exactly identical to the heme we’ve always been eating, but it’s not true.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Great to know that we have an FDA which doesn't mandate food product safety before a product is introduced to an unsuspecting public!!

Why is there no halt in production of this product, until safety testing is truly finished?!?

A PATENT EXISTS TO PROVIDE HOME SURVEILLANCE USING AMI SMART METERS

AMI (Advanced Metering Infrastructure) Smart Meters (AMI SMs) are being forced on to everyone’s home, apartment, condo and businesses in the United States with total disregard for numerous legal aspects, with one specifically-egregious issue experiencing total abandonment or disregard for the U.S. Constitution, plus individuals’ rights under their respective home states’ constitutions.

So, what am I talking about? Privacy and the right to be secure in your home! The Search and Seizure aspects found and shielded in the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution are not being respected nor enforced by state public utility commissions and utility companies, most of who are harassing customers!

AMI SMs are nothing but “surveillance computers”!

Report: ‘Unite the Right’ Organizer Jason Kessler Was Obama Supporter Involved With Occupy Movement

Rumors abound on white nationalist forums that Kessler’s ideological pedigree before 2016 was less than pure and seem to point to involvement in the Occupy movement and past support for President Obama.

At one recent speech in favor of Charlottesville’s status as a sanctuary city,Kessler live-streamed himself as an attendee questioned him and apologized for an undisclosed spat during Kessler’s apparent involvement with Occupy. Kessler appeared visibly perturbed by the woman’s presence and reminders of their past association.

Kessler himself has placed his “red-pilling” around December of 2013 when a PR executive was publicly excoriated for a tasteless Twitter joke about AIDS in Africa.

Regarding the incident, Kessler stated “… so it was just a little race joke, nothing that big of a deal, she didn’t have that many followers, she probably didn’t think anybody was gonna see it,”

As Leak Probes Abound, Tillerson Promotes Diplomat Who Passed Classified Info To AIPAC: The promotion of David Satterfield comes as the Trump administration cracks down on leakers elsewhere in the government.

As the Trump administration widens its crackdown on unauthorized leaks to the press, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has promoted a diplomat who provided classified information to an influential pro-Israel lobbying organization that resulted in espionage charges.

David Satterfield, a long time Middle East hand with extensive experience in the region, has been named acting assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern Affairs, a State Department official told BuzzFeed News.

In 2005, federal prosecutors said Satterfield provided classified national security secrets to a top lobbyist for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a powerful special interest group known simply as AIPAC. The accusation was included in an indictment that charged two former AIPAC employees, Steven Rosen and Keith Weissman, and a former Pentagon official, Lawrence Franklin, under the Espionage Act with illegally trafficking in classified information.

What if the DNC Russian “hack” was really a leak after all? A new report raises questions media and Democrats would rather ignore

Last week the respected left-liberal magazine The Nation published an explosive article that details in great depth the findings of a new report — authored in large part by former U.S. intelligence officers — which claims to present forensic evidence that the Democratic National Committee was not hacked by the Russians in July 2016. Instead, the report alleges, the DNC suffered an insider leak, conducted in the Eastern time zone of the United States by someone with physical access to a DNC computer.

Former Mrs. America convicted of stealing $5,500 from Macy’s in Minnesota

A former Mrs. America was convicted Tuesday in Hennepin County District Court of stealing $5,500 from Macy’s by switching the price tags on clothes she returned.

A jury found Jennifer Kline, 51, of Wayzata, guilty of one count of theft by swindle after a seven-day trial. She is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 18.

In November 2015, Kline spent nearly $5,800 on clothing at the Southdale Macy’s in Edina, paying for her purchases with a credit card, according to the criminal complaint.

Kline removed the tags from the items and attached them to clothing she already owned, before “returning” the items to the Macy’s in the Mall of America and receiving a $5,501 refund on her credit card, the charges said.

FBI Admits Federal Informants Linked to Deadly Charlottesville Riots; Unlikely To Face Charges

FBI insiders said it is unlikely leaders of the radical groups that clashed in demonstrations turned deadly in Charlottesville, VA will face prosecution.

Why?

FBI said they have already identified several federal informants who participated in the mob-like riots over the weekend in Virginia. The FBI is also now working those sources to piece together the events from Charlottesville, sources said.

But FBI agents have deemed the newly-minted investigation dicey, having to navigate separate agreements with embedded intelligence assets while trying to pinpoint responsibility for the violence.

Late Saturday, the Justice Department announced the federal probe. The investigation, spearheaded by the Richmond, VA FBI field office, was launched after an Ohio man drove his car through a crowd of demonstrators killing one woman and injuring dozens.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This sickens me.

IF, in fact, paid FBI agents were actually here, what was their function, other than intel?!?

Was it to worsen the mood of the mob to the point where violence would be the inevitable result?!?

At this moment, if there was an FBI order to foment rage and rioting on the part of these informants, whoever gave that order person needs to be sacked, immediately, and publicly, by President Trump.

Because in allowing these riots to move forward, it caused deaths, massive injuries, and deeply scarred the soul of this nation in a way that it might not be able to ultimately survive or overcome.

UK '55 million years too late' for fracking, says leading geoscientist

The geology of the UK is unsuitable for fracking and the opportunity of the new energy source has been “overhyped”, a geoscience expert has claimed.

Professor John Underhill, chief scientist at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, suggested the UK is “55 million years too late” for the gas extraction technique to work.

He said reservoirs of shale gas had been damaged by seismic activity 55 million years ago, causing some of the deposits to escape.

US report on religious freedom in Iran ‘false, biased, politicized’

Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Ghasemi said the US State Department's annual report on international religious freedom is unrealistic, unfounded, and biased with certain political goals.

“The US report once again has presented a distorted and politicized picture of religious freedom in the Islamic republic of Iran with unfounded and unacceptable accusations leveled against the country,” Bahram Ghasemi said in a statement on Wednesday.

He went on to add, “making subjective and unfounded interpretations of religions and religious beliefs ultimately leads to the escalation of inter-religious crises and conflicts with no positive outcome.”

At least three prominent Saudi dissidents living in Europe, who openly criticized Saudi Arabia’s system of government, have been illegally abducted by the country’s monarchy in the past two years, according to a report by the BBC. All three, who are members of the Saudi royal family, are missing, believed to be dead or held against their will in Saudi Arabia. But the country’s government will not comment on their fate.

Turkey "Worried" about Idleb Situation and the Forthcoming Kurdistan Separation Referendum in Iraq

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Wednesday that a group of Russian military commanders will soon arrive in Turkey to discuss the situation in the northwestern Syrian province of Idleb, which is currently occupied by the terrorist group Hay’at Tahrir Al Sham (ex-Al Nusra Front). “Russia has more understanding of Turkish position on the issue of the Kurdish separatists in Syria than the United States”, Cavusoglu said in an interview with TRT News Channel. Washington provides the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) with weapons and equipment, a thing that poses a grave concern for Turkey who sees YPG as an extension of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), and whose insurgency begun back in the 1980s in the Turkish southeast.
