'Pro-Erdogan group buys opposition media companies'


Hurriyet and CNN Turk among those bought by Dogan Holding

21 MARCH, 20:21

ISTANBUL - The holding company of Turkish magnate Aydin Dogan has allegedly closed a 1.25-billion-dollar deal for the sale of some of the main opposition media outlets in Turkey - including Hurriyet and CNN Turk - to a group of businessmen with ties to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, according to independent website T24.

Media outlets in the sale are said to include the newspapers Hurriyet and Posta, two of the country's best-selling dailies, as well as the popular sports newspaper Fanatik, and broadcasters CNN Turk and Kanal D.

Leading the pack of buyers is the holding company headed by Yildirim Demiroren, the former owner of the Besiktas football team and current president of the Turkish Football Federation.

In 2011, Demiroren took control of opposition dailies Milliyet and Vatan, both of which subsequently changed their editorial stance.

If confirmed, the news would be another strong concentration of media power in the hands of pro-Erdogan groups.

Meanwhile, news of the sale produced effects on the Istanbul stock exchange, where shares of Dogan Holding rose 17% and shares of publishing group Hurriyet Gazetecilik rose 19%.



Well, that is one way to get better press coverage.

Famous Turkish singer sentenced to 10 months in jail for insulting Erdogan


Reuters
ANKARA: A famous Turkish singer and actress has been sentenced to 10 months in prison for insulting President Recep Tayyip Erdogan during a performance in 2016, the Hurriyet newspaper said Thursday.

Singer Zuhal Olcay was accused of changing the lyrics of one of her songs by substituting Erdogan's name into it and making an insulting hand gesture while singing, Hurriyet said.


Video from the performance showed Olcay changing her song's lyrics to read "Recep Tayyip Erdogan, it's all empty, it's all a lie, life will end one day and you'll say 'I had a dream'," Hurriyet said.

In her testimony, Olcay rejected the accusations, saying she had used Erdogan's name because it fit the rhyme scheme and had no "ulterior or insulting motive". She said the hand gesture was aimed at an audience member.

Olcay was previously fined 10,620 lira ($2,708) for "insulting a public servant" in 2010, according to the state-run Anadolu agency.

Insulting the president is a crime punishable by up to four years in prison in Turkey.

Lawyers for Erdogan, who has dominated Turkish politics for more than a decade, have filed more than 1,800 cases against people including cartoonists, a former Miss Turkey winner and school children on accusations of insulting him.

Enes Kanter, a Turkish basketball player in the U.S. NBA team New York Knicks, is also standing trial in absentia for insulting Erdogan.

Following the 2016 failed coup, Erdogan said he would drop outstanding suits, in a one-off gesture, but several new cases have since emerged.

Rights groups and some Western governments have voiced concern that Turkey is sliding toward authoritarianism, criticizing a crackdown which saw some 150,000 people sacked or suspended from their jobs and more than 50,000 jailed pending trial on suspicion of links to the failed coup.

The government says such measures are necessary to ensure stability and defend Turkey from multiple security threats.




Crude but more effective than how You Tube does it.

The Scottish courts are learning though.

Syria: And The Winner Is…
...
The Kurds and their American allies (over 2,000 U.S. troops) hold the northwest while Turkey has made it clear they are keeping much of the Syrian side of the Turkish border west of the Euphrates River. Most of the “lost territory” is in Eastern Syria.
...
In light of all this the February battle appears to have been based on someone assuming that the American and SDF forces based around the nearby oil field would fall back with the approach of the largely Russian contractor force. This was a major mistake and it is unclear who on the Russian side allowed it to happen.
..
The Turks insist that they are going to control the Syrian side of the border from the Euphrates River west to the Mediterranean but have apparently made a deal (“an understanding not an agreement”) with the Americans that will allow the SDF and U.S. forces to remain in Manbij as long as all the SDF fighters in Manbij (and west of the Euphrates) are non-Kurds. This is apparently acceptable to the Kurds because it appears to reinforce their position in the northwest Syria.

Erdogan Predicts ‘War Between the Cross and Crescent’ over Austria Mosque Closures

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan attacked Austria’s impending closure of mosques and consequent expulsion of Turkish-funded imams, saying the move is anti-Islamic while promising a response.

“These measures taken by the Austrian prime minister are, I fear, leading the world towards a war between the cross and the crescent,” Erdogan said in a speech in Istanbul covered by AFP.

Austria’s populist government made the announcement on Friday morning at a press conference as part of the governing coalition’s campaign against radical Islamic ideology and the influence of countries like Turkey in the Austrian Islamic community, Kronen Zeitung reports.

Media reports that between 40 and 60 imams, including their families, could be expelled in total. The imams all stand accused of receiving funding from abroad. Official investigations have been launched in 11 cases. Two of the imams had already been denied extensions to their residency permits.

Among the mosques facing closure is the Mosque of the Grey Wolves on Antonsplatz, in the working-class Vienna district of Favoriten, where the Gallipoli reenactment took place.

The other six mosques are in Vienna, Upper Austria and Carinthia, in all of which hardline salafist teachings are said to be widespread.

Mr. Erdogan, speaking Saturday, said: “They say they’re going to kick our religious men out of Austria. Do you think we will not react if you do such a thing?”

“That means we’re going to have to do something,” he added without elaborating.

Around 360,000 people of Turkish origin live in Austria, including 117,000 Turkish nationals.

Relations between Ankara and Vienna have been strained since a failed coup against Erdogan in 2016 which was followed by a wave of arrests. Mr. Erdogan’s speech precedes presidential and legislative elections on June 24 in which he faces stiff opposition.

During last year’s Turkish referendum on expanding the president’s powers, tensions ran high between Vienna and Ankara after Austria said it would not allow campaign-related events.

The new policy comes after a number of scandals involving mosques in Austria, including one in which Islamists were plotting to overthrow the government to replace it with an Islamic caliphate. The ATIB association came under fire last week when a Turkish mosque posted images of young children swearing oaths to the Turkish state.



Turkish mosques in Austria are recruiting residents of Austria to swear an oath of allegiance to Turkey and plotting to overthrow the government in favor of an Islamic caliphate and Erdogan thinks the Austrian government is overreacting in its response to that... :roll:

I am going to start using the phrase "I need to take an erdogan" when it's time to "drop a deuce".

"Cross and crescent" war? :roll: Let's see how long his 40 year old M-48's and M-60's last.

Erdogan has capable ATGM's....because we sold them to him. A Swedish ATGM as well. They also probably have more operable Leopard models than Germany :lol: What they don't have is as many pilots or officers as they used to because Erdogan purged them for being "Galanists"

Austria is not a full NATO member state. They are termed a NATO "partner"..so..we might have the option of not joining WWIII if Erdogan and the Muzzies attacks Vienna again.

The chief risk of Erdogan saying crazy shit like this is emboldening violent jihadists.
