“I sin årlige vurdering af Tyrkiets frem- og tilbageskridt i en reformproces noterede EU-kommissionen i tirsdags på minussiden, at det går tilbage for pressefriheden. Selv om færre journalister bliver retsforfulgt under den kontroversielle paragraf 301 om fornærmelser mod tyrkiskheden, er der mange andre paragraffer i tyrkiske love, der kan bruges og bliver brugt til at true og retsforfølge journalister.

Kommissionen noterer ganske vist med tilfredshed, at det er blevet nemmere at føre offentlig debat om nationale tabuer som kurderspørgsmålet og det armenske folkedrab, men på andre punkter går det reelt tilbage.

»Alt i alt er åben og fri debat fortsat og udbygget. Men det høje antal retssager mod journalister og uretmæssige pres på medier underminerer pressefriheden i praksis«, sagde udvidelseskommissær Stefan Füle ved rapportens offentliggørelse.

Pinlig placering
For nylig offentliggjorde Reporters Sans Frontières sin liste over pressefrihed i alle verdens lande og afslørede, at Tyrkiet er strøget fra en beskeden plads som nummer 102 til en dybt pinlig plads som nummer 138. Det bringer Tyrkiet i selskab med lande som Etiopien og Singapore, men et stykke efter Irak og Venezuela.”

Titled “The Great Divide: How Westerners and Muslims View Each Other,” the new Pew study reveals that Muslim countries generally view Westerners as violent and immoral. Large majorities of even British Muslims think Westerners are “selfish” and “arrogant.”

Above all, foreign Muslims hate American foreign policy, which in a disturbingly large share of their minds justifies terrorism. Fully 57% of Jordanians think it’s OK to attack civilians in jihad. A simple majority of Egyptians agree. … Muslims also blame us for their lack of prosperity. Nearly half of Turks, among the better educated of Mideast Muslims, say Western policies rob them of wealth. … A majority of Americans more accurately blame Muslim government corruption and a lack of education for chronic Muslim poverty. … Though they are beneficiaries of $10 billion in direct U.S. aid since 9/11, Pakistanis still hold us in contempt. Pew found that most think we are “selfish, immoral and greedy.” … majorities of Muslims in Pakistan and the Mideast think we are less “respectful” of women than they are. … Americans overwhelmingly blame Arab Muslims, while Muslims abroad, including 56% of British Muslims, insist someone else carried out the attacks.

“A Populus poll found that 48% of the population would consider supporting a new anti-immigration party committed to challenging Islamist extremism, and would support policies to make it statutory for all public buildings to fly the flag of St George or the union flag.”

Tiotusentals migranter från Nordafrika och Afrika söder om Sahara har varje år tagit sig via Tunisiens och Libyens norra kuster till öarna utanför Italien och till Malta. Libyens ledare Muammar Gaddafi har använt flyktingströmmarna som ett politiskt vapen i förhandlingar med EU och sagt att “Europa kommer att bli svart”.

– Den ungerska ambassadören i Libyen fick i torsdags budskapet att Libyen kommer att sluta samarbeta med EU gällande migrationsfrågor om EU fortsätter att göra uttalanden till stöd för demonstranterna, sade en EU-tjänsteman i söndags, enligt Reuters. Ungern innehar för närvarande EU:s ordförandeskap. Hotet innebar att Gaddafi skulle dra tillbaka kust- och gränskontroller.

Tjänstemän i Bryssel uppskattar att runt 750 000 personer kan försöka ta sig över Medelhavet och in i södra Europa, skriver den brittiska tidningen the Telegraph.”

Det er jo om at udnytte situationen…

“Conducted by the Harry S. Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace at the Hebrew University and the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research in Ramallah, the poll asked roughly 2,000 Israelis Jews and Palestinian Arabs if they believed the current direct peace talks should continue.

An overwhelming 78 percent of Israelis said the talks should continue, though at present only 5 percent had any hope they would result in an actual peace agreement. By contrast, only 30 percent of Palestinians wanted the peace talks to continue, while 41 percent said they support a return to armed violence against Israel’s Jews.

Sixty-three percent of Israelis said they fear another explosion of terrorist violence in the near future.”

“11 procent. Så lav er opbakningen til Venstre, de Konservative og Dansk Folkeparti fra de danske muslimer, viser en meningsmåling, som analyseinstituttet Capacent har foretaget blandt muslimer i Danmark for Danmarks Radio. Det skriver dr.dk.

Omvendt så ville Socialdemokraterne med en opbakning på 58,3 procent være de store sejrherrer, hvis muslimer alene sammensatte Folketinget. Lægges stemmerne til SF og Enhedslisten oveni, når de røde partier svimlende 83,3 procent. Dertil kommer 5,8 procent af de muslimske stemmer til de Radikale, som også foretrækker en socialdemokratisk ledet regering.”
