Turkey’s Path from Fascism to Fascism!

By Rebwar Rashed: As a kid I was always amused by the magician’s ability that, with just a wave of the hat, he could pull a rabbit or a dove out of an empty hand. What a performance!

Erdogan’s State Sponsored Terrorism Breeds More Terrorism

Turkey, World’s Most Racist State!

Rebwar Reshid

Is Erdogan Turning Today’s Turkey Into Tomorrow’s Syria?

By Arian Mufid: Yesterday’s terrorist attack at Istanbul’s Ataturk airport highlights the ultimate folly of President Erdogan’s policy of fostering ISIS and other jihadists, such as the Al Qaeda-affilliate al Nusra, mainly to counteract the righteous Kurdish movement for self rule.
