"Russia and Iran declare victory as Western leaders including Cameron accept Assad will stay"

stern-leaders-including-Cameron-accept-Assad-will-stay.html

Russlands Präsident Putin wolle den aktuellen UN-Gipfel nutzen, um die Bildung einer neuen internationalen Koalition für den Kampf gegen die Terrormiliz "Islamischer Staat" voranzutreiben, berichtet der britische Telegraph. Westliche Regierungen hätten bereits angedeutet, nicht länger auf dem sofortigen Rücktritt von Syriens Präsident Assad zu bestehen. "President Bashar al-Assad’s key backers declared victory on Sunday night after Western leaders who had previously backed Syrian rebels, including David Cameron, said they accepted he would stay in power, at least for the time being. Speaking to reporters on his way to attend the United Nations General Assembly in New York, the Prime Minister said Mr Assad had no 'long-term' future but suggested he could remain in place during a transition period. Germany and America have also talked up the possibility of keeping him in place in a deal to end the four-year Syrian civil war and help defeat Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil)."

"A very un-African coup - how peacebrokers thwarted carnage in Burkina Faso"

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/africaandindianocean/burkinafaso/11886668/A-very-un-African-cou
p-how-peacebrokers-thwarted-carnage-in-Burkina-Faso.html

Die erfolgreiche und friedliche Vermittlung nach dem Putsch in Burkina Faso lässt einen britischen Experten hoffen, dass Staatstreiche in Westafrika der Vergangenheit angehören. "Certainly, when the coup first took place there last week, it looked like a textbook job from the bad old days. First, soldiers stormed a cabinet meeting and kidnapped country's interim president, Michel Kafondo. Then the coup leader, a towering former spy chief named General Gilbert Diendere, took to the airwaves to declare that power was now in the hands of a new 'National Democratic Council'. (...) Things grew even worse over the weekend, when the peace talks at a hotel in the capital, Ouagadougou, turned into a punch-up. (...) But by Wednesday morning, Mr Kafondo was back in office again, and by Wednesday evening, General Diendere declared the whole thing over, describing it as 'his biggest mistake'. So why has this come about? The answer may be that west Africa is finally losing its tolerance for coups and coupmongers, according to Paul Melly, an expert with the Africa Programme at London's Chatham House international think-tank."

"Taking in Syria's migrants may be merciful, but will add to its crippling brain-drain"

iful-but-will-add-to-its-crippling-brain-drain.html

Die aus humanitärer Sicht verständliche Aufnahme gut ausgebildeter Flüchtlinge aus Syrien könnte den erfolgreichen Wiederaufbau des Landes nach einem Ende des Krieges nachhaltig behindern, warnt Colin Freeman im britischen Telegraph. "So what it is to be done? According to this piece by the respected Oxford economics professor Paul Collier, the real solution lies not in Europe, but in directing far more aid to the refugee camps in Lebanon, Turkey, and Jordan, turning them into havens of education, training and enterprise. Rather than languishing on meagre handouts, the refugee population would be honed into a skilled task force ready to help with the recovery if and when the war finally ends. Nation-building by proxy, you might call it."

Nach einer Nord-Süd-Spaltung im Zuge der Eurokrise stehe die EU nun vor einer Ost-West-Spaltung, schreibt Ambrose Evans-Pritchard im britischen Telegraph. EU-Staaten in Osteuropa fürchteten, die Kontrolle über die eigenen Grenzen zu verlieren, da Brüssel eine europäische Flüchtlingsquote notfalls auch mit der Androhung von Sanktionen durchsetzen wolle. "This comes as a rude shock, creating a new East-West rift within European affairs to match the North-South battles over EMU. With certain nuances, the peoples of Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Poland and the Baltic states do not accept the legitimacy of the demands being made upon them."

Colin Freeman mit einer Reportage aus der mit 30.000 Einwohnern relativ kleinen Stadt Kacanik im Süden Kosovos, aus der bislang 24 Männer für den "Islamischen Staat" in den Krieg gezogen seien. "Kosovo, of course, is not alone among European nations in acquiring its own equivalent to Britain's Jihadi John. But for a nation of just 1.8 million people, it now punches well above its weight in terms of the number of citizens joining Isil. The interior ministry estimates that some 300 Kosovans have followed in Muhaxheri's’ footsteps, making Kosovo Europe's biggest contributor per capita. Along with neighbouring Albania, which has fielded around 200, and nearby Bosnia, which around 160, it is now seen as a potential launch pad for Isil in its bid to establish a new front against Europe in the Balkans."

Richard Spencer berichtet, dass es in den vergangenen Monaten immer mehr jesidischen Gefangenen des IS gelungen sei, in ihre Heimat zurückzukehren. "While the story of the Yazidis is one of unremitting horror, it is also one of resilience. In the last few months, a quiet project run by volunteers, smugglers, community leaders and the government of the Kurdistan Autonomous Region of northern Iraq has set up rat runs for the thousands of people still held as hostages - or worse - by Isil. Gradually, Yazidis like this family are coming home."

Richard Spencer berichtet aus dem Dorf Zergaly im Norden Iraks, dass die türkischen Luftschläge auch Angehörige von kurdischen Peschmerga-Kämpfern, die mit westlicher Unterstützung gegen den "Islamischen Staat" kämpfen, getötet hätten. "In fact the Kurdish army with which Mr Rasul was fighting, the Peshmerga, is supposed to be Turkey’s ally in the complex world of Middle East politics. It is being trained by British troops, and supplied with weapons by Germany. But it seems anyone can now become a victim, as the always intricate alliances of the Middle East - a house of cards if ever there was one - come tumbling down. And in the face of Isil, no card is looking shakier at the moment than Turkey. 'Turkey is to blame,' Mr Rasul said on Friday, as he greeted fellow mourners in front of the pile of rubble to which the airstrikes had reduced his family’s row of houses. Eight people died in the attack, several elderly, one a younger female teacher called Sama Gear."

Nach der Festnahme des bekannten Al-Jazeera-Journalisten Ahmed Mansour in Berlin müsse sich die Bundesregierung den Vorwurf gefallen lassen, der repressiven ägyptischen Regierung von Präsident al-Sisi zuzuarbeiten. "Reporters Without Borders, the press freedom watchdog, said Mr Mansour's arrest is the result of 'Egypt's terrible revenge against journalists that cross the regime,' adding if Germany did extradite him 'it will be putting itself at service of a dictatorial regime and will dishonour itself.' Egypt has mounted a crackdown on dissidents of all political stripes since Mr Sisi’s regime came to power in a military coup. Although it has targeted journalists from across the political spectrum, particular ire has been reserved for the Al-Jazeera network, which is owned by arch-rival Qatar."

"Good Kill: 'sophisticated and provocative'"

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/film/good-kill/review/

Robbie Collin stellt den neuen Hollywoodfilm "Good Kill" vor, in dem die psychologische Belastung von US-Drohnenpiloten thematisiert wird. "Andrew Niccol’s new film is a sophisticated, provocative and thoroughly modern war film that makes Clint Eastwood’s recent American Sniper look slow to find its target. It’s fascinated by the dehumanising effects of combat at a distance, and also the queasy convergence of violence and entertainment. Behind his bank of monitors, joystick in hand, Egan looks like a hardcore video-gamer, and at one point, a character balefully points out that 'war is now a first-person shooter'. Like Niccol’s script for The Truman Show, Good Kill is keenly aware of the intoxicating, corruptive power of a God’s-eye view."

"It is widely known that Islam is increasing globally but despite this increase, by 2050, only two more countries (51 in total) will have a population of Muslims that is more than 50 per cent. By 2050, the Pew report predicted that 30 per cent (2.8 billion) of the population will identify themselves as Muslim compared to 31 per cent (2.9 billion) identifying themselves as Christian. In Europe, it is suggested that by 2050, 10 per cent of the continent will be Muslim and in the US, it will become the second-largest faith."

Die russischen Behörden haben bei ihren Ermittlungen zum Mord am Kremlkritiker Boris Nemtsov bisher fünf Verdächtige festgenommen. Als mögliches Motiv der Tat hat der tschetschenische Regierungschef Ramzan Kadyrov Nemtsovs Befürwortung der Veröffentlichung von Mohammed-Karikaturen durch das französische Satiremagazin Charlie Hebdo genannt. "The comments highlighted Mr Kadyrov’s own delicate dance with Islam and the Kremlin. A former rebel fighting for Chechen independence, he went over to Russia and has since led its battle against Islamist militants in the region, using outfits such as the North battalion where Mr Dadayev served, a unit made up of mostly ethnic Chechen fighters and commanded by one of Mr Kadyrov's relatives. Yet while the Chechnya leader rails against Islamic State and other fundamentalists, he has his own deeply conservative Muslim views and organised a rally of hundreds of thousands of people in Grozny to protest against the Charlie Hebdo cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in January."

The fighters would then run amok in southern European cities and also try to attack maritime shipping. The document is written by an Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) propagandist who is believed to be an important online recruiter for the terror in Libya, where security has collapsed in the wake of the revolution that unseated Colonel Gaddafi in 2011."

'We can't have no-go areas in our communities because that allows space for evil-doers to ply their trades and it is the same in the virtual world.' He said the revelations by Edward Snowden, the former CIA contractor, had gained traction because the public had not been properly informed about the security services' online surveillance capabilities. Sir John added that Snowden 'gained traction' because the public did not know that GCHQ, the Government listening post, and its US counterparts 'could monitor traffic on the internet in the way that it could'."

The UAE, home to Abu Dhabi and Dubai, is ruled by families, like much of the energy-rich Gulf. There are no political parties and foreigners greatly outnumber locals. (...) Amnesty International said there was a 'huge gulf between the public image the UAE tries to project of a dynamic, modern and burgeoning economic power, home to luxury hotels, skyscrapers and designer shopping malls; and the darker reality of activists routinely persecuted and subjected to enforced disappearance, torture and other ill-treatment.'"

Der Emir von Katar hat bei seinem Berlin-Besuch noch einmal beteuert, dass sein Land keine extremistischen islamistischen Organisationen finanziere. David Blair und Richard Spencer haben trotzdem keinen Zweifel daran, dass der Golfstaat einer der Hauptsponsoren gewaltsamer Islamisten sei. "From Hamas in the Gaza Strip to radical armed movements in Syria, Qatar's status as a prime sponsor of violent Islamists, including groups linked to al-Qaeda, is clear to diplomats and experts. Qatar's promotion of extremism has so infuriated its neighbours that Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates all chose to withdraw their ambassadors from the country in March. (...) Last December, the US Treasury designated a Qatari academic and businessman, Abdul Rahman al-Nuaimi, as a 'global terrorist'. The US accused him of sending nearly £366,000 to 'al-Qaeda's representative in Syria', named as Abu Khalid al-Suri. (...) critics question why Qatar has failed to act against him. 'It's deeply concerning that these individuals, where sufficient evidence is in place to justify their inclusion on the US sanctions list, continue to be free to undertake their business dealings,' said Stephen Barclay, the Conservative MP for North East Cambridgeshire."

Die erneute Krise im Irak sollte nach Überzeugung von Andrew Lilico genutzt werden, um eine strategische Fehlentscheidung vergangener Jahre zu korrigieren und den Staat Irak aufzuteilen. "With the Turkey-PKK conflict ended and Kurds sacrificing their soldiers in the struggle against IS, there is a clear mechanism for increasing the local acceptance of what will now surely be a significant military involvement, once again, in Iraq. If we formally recognise Kurdistan and then have the Kurds invite us to assist them in resisting IS, we need not conceive of ourselves as intervening in a civil war – even for the purposes of resisting genocide. Instead, we could simply be helping an ally that is being attacked."

Brendan O'Neill meint, dass sich viele Israel-Kritiker aus dem linken politischen Lager zu Recht Antisemitismus vorwerfen lassen müssen. "In the language it uses, in the ideas it promotes, in the way in which it talks about the modern world, including Israel, much of the Left has adopted a style of politics that has anti-Semitic undertones, and sometimes overtones. The key problem has been the Left’s embrace of conspiratorial thinking, its growing conviction that the world is governed by what it views as uncaring 'cabals', 'networks', self-serving lobbyists and gangs of bankers, all of which has tempted it to sometimes turn its attentions towards those people who historically were so often the object and the target of conspiratorial thinking – the Jews. (...) This is a recurring theme in anti-Israel sentiment today: the idea that a powerful, sinister lobby of Israel lovers has warped our otherwise respectable leaders here in the West, basically winning control of Western foreign policy."

"Defence chiefs are being forced to call up a 'Dad’s Army' of retired military intelligence officers because the crisis in Ukraine has exposed a shortage of Russian speakers in the Armed Forces. Senior military intelligence staff have been trawling veterans’ groups seeking former Russia experts and asking for their help, according to documents seen by The Telegraph. Security sources said defence cuts, recent focus on the Middle East and Asia, and resurgent Cold War threats had exposed the shortage of expertise and left commanders scrambling to approach former experts, who are now in their 60s."
