Assassination of Russian ambassador

December 20th, 2016 – A rather inconsiderate tweet made by Daily Mail regarding the shocking assassination of Russian ambassador to Turkey sparked a barrage of criticism in social media.

While other media outlets focused on apparently mundane and trivial things like the killer’s motive or the potential consequences of the assassination, Daily Mail opted to report the thing that really matters – the assassin’s dressing style. “Russian ambassador shot by a smartly dressed man in a suit and tie,” the newspaper tweeted.

Turkey: The Armenian genocide

Armenian Genocide
In 1915, leaders of the Turkish government set in motion a plan to expel and massacre Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire. Though reports vary, most sources agree that there were about 2 million Armenians in the Ottoman Empire at the time of the massacre. By the early 1920’s, when the massacres and deportations finally ended, some 1.5 million of Turkey’s Armenians were dead, with many more forcibly removed from the country. Today, most historians call this event a genocide–a premeditated and systematic campaign to exterminate an entire people. However, the Turkish government does not acknowledge the enormity or scope of these events.

Syrian Independence – Latest News

They just said on the radio that Turkey, as a protest against the bomb attack in Ankara (which was presumably organized by the Turkish government), will not be present at the conference about the refugees organized by the European countries. This is pure political blackmail. Some days ago Russia was accused of bombing a hospital in Aleppo while Turkey was bombing civilian targets of the Kurds in Northern Syria. The UN and the US were only talking about the Russian bombings and kept silence about the Turkish bombings + military intervention. Today, Russia said ‘NO’ to a no fly zone of NATO in Syria (Turkey is a key member of NATO).
