    The Turkish Minute ^ | April 10, 2018 | Abdullah Bozkurt
    The violent aspect of the worrisome radicalization of the Turkish diaspora with a heavy dose of nationalist and Islamist ideology has been personally driven by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who publicly rewards mischief and unashamedly glorifies vigilante behavior among expatriate communities. As a result, the Turkish president is setting up a very dangerous path for many to follow on the violent trajectory while unleashing beasts to wreak havoc in host countries.Just this week, Erdoğan personally called Turkish national Yusuf Ünsal, who was detained by German police for his interference in a protest in Stuttgart against the Turkish government’s military offensive...

    Tourists taking the ferry from this tourist town to the island of Cozumel now walk down a wharf lined with police, heavily armed soldiers and bomb-sniffing dogs. Those safeguards came after a Feb. 21 explosion ripped through one of the ferries, injuring 24 people, including five Americans. Explosives were later found on another ferry owned by the same company.

    While this country is embroiled in a shouting match over gun violence, Germany finds itself in an internal debate about the rise in knife violence. Unlike this country, though, many in Germany seem to be focused on finding the root cause and, hence, the solution. As The Local reports of Germany, "police statistics [show] that refugees and asylum seekers are significantly over-represented in violent crime statistics."Titled "String of knife attacks further fuels debate over refugees and violence," the article begins by listing a series of violent knife attacks. Almost all of the attacks were done by male teenage refugees....

    Cleveland, OH As the wail of approaching sirens grew louder, those on both sides of the abortion battle readied themselves for action. Pro-life activists praying on the sidewalk on March 24, 2018, outside of Preterm, a high-volume abortion business in Cleveland, Ohio, readied their cameras and prepared to document yet another medical emergency at that facility the twelfth such known incident since 2010. Meanwhile, clinic employees and escorts positioned themselves to disrupt attempts to document the incident. As the gurney bearing the woman requiring emergency assistance emerged from the carport under the building, both sides shifted into action....

    PARKLAND, Fla. My first interaction with Nikolas Cruz happened when I was in seventh grade. I was eating lunch with my friends, most likely discussing One Direction or Ed Sheeran, when I felt a sudden pain in my lower back. The force of the blow knocked the wind out of my 90-pound body; tears stung my eyes. I turned around and saw him, smirking. I had never seen this boy before, but I would never forget his face. His eyes were lit up with a sick, twisted joy as he watched me cry. The apple that he had thrown...

    DOTHAN - "Man, that's a brand new car," Reverend Kenneth Sharpton Glasgow told a bystander as he was escorted over to a Dothan Police Department vehicle Sunday night. The car he was referencing was a 2018 Toyota Camry that was in the middle of a murder crime scene at the intersection of Lake Street and Allen Road. Glasgow indicated to the bystander that the Camry belonged to him, and the vehicle may have had damage from gunshots. Glasgow, 52, wasn't wearing handcuffs, but he did ride in the backseat of the DPD vehicle away from the scene. "We were ducked...

    Republicans will be using the omnibus bill to clarify that the Centers for Control and Prevention (CDC) can perform gun violence research. The Democrats wanted a full repeal of the Dickey Amendment, and Republicans demurred but met them halfway by agreeing to make it clear that the CDC is not barred from doing the research. The Dickey Amendment, named after the late Rep. Jay Dickey (R-AR), was put into a funding bill in 1996 and has been renewed every year since. It says, None of the funds made available in this title may be used, in whole or in part,...

    So much for the soft moderate blue wave of Democrats sweeping special elections these days. The real Democrats the dinosaurs, the elitists, the detesters of deplorables, the Chicago politics-types, and the arrogant are back, with none more obvious than Eric Holder, who offered this violent language for his political opponents. The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports: "We have to be ready to, you know, not do anything inappropriate, not do anything improper, certainly not do anything unlawful," he said. "But to the extent that they want to have a fight, let's do it. You want to rumble, let's rumble. You...

    “About 1,400 students wearing orange shirts gathered on a hill at East Chapel Hill High School in North Carolina to listen as student organizers read the names of each of the Parkland victims…students gathered in discussion circles to talk about gun violence in America. [...]”It’s really scary to me how in America we seem to have this constant, or this prevailing, notion that we should fight violence with violence,” said senior Frances O’Grady, 18, “and that’s never, ever the solution…I think that’s just a very dangerous idea.”"On the classroom wall behind O’Grady hung a banner with the image of Che...

    Contrasting styles of how to cope with differing religions in schools were demonstrated recently in Massachusetts and Germany. In Massachusetts librarians at Simmons College in Boston issued The Anti-Oppression Library Guide to promote equality and limit religious persecution. The Guide urges students to "refrain from using trigger words like 'Merry Christmas' or 'God bless you' after someone sneezes because these words constitute microaggressions against Muslims. Muslims don't celebrate Christmas. And the notion that God should bless a non-Muslim is offensive to their faith." The Guide warns that "even unintentional or inadvertent use of such trigger words could unleash a violent...

    President Trump will discuss violent video games Thursday afternoon with a diverse group of industry leaders, lawmakers, and conservative cultural critics. A list of participants was shared by the White House a few hours ahead of the 2 p.m. event, called after Trump suggested last month that violent games may lead to mass shootings, a contention unsupported by mainstream scholarship. Industry representatives include Mike Gallagher, CEO of the Entertainment Software Association, a video game trade association that preemptively circulated pushback, video-game maker ZeniMax Media CEO Robert Altman, and Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick.

    STOCKTON, Calif. (KCRA) At least five students were arrested Friday as hundreds of others from several Stockton high schools walked out of classes in protest of gun violence after last week's deadly shooting at a Florida high school. Students at Stagg, Edison, Chavez, Lincoln and Village Oak high schools were walking along streets, creating traffic problems in the area as streets were blocked off. Stockton police said some students threw rocks and damaged both police and citizen vehicles. Five arrests were made, including charges of battery on an officer, resisting arrest, taking an officer's baton and vandalizing vehicles, including...

    While Americans try to cope with the losses in Florida, they're saying goodbye to someone else: America's pastor, Billy Graham. Never has our nation so desperately needed to hear the message of hope and healing that the 99-year-old spent his life sharing. So surely, it's no earthly coincidence that even in Reverend Graham's death, he's forcing us to look in the one place where the answers to this heartbreak lie: up.Torn apart by grief and rage, Americans are frantic to know why our nation is unraveling in one act of violence after another. "We're done with thoughts and prayers!" an...

    Jesse Farrar, formerly of Deadspin and Vice, tweeted that professors should instead "hold the conservative students heads under water until they stop breathing." Kirk responded: I'm sure he is joking, but imagine if conservatives made a joke like that against liberals? I am not joking, Farrar wrote back, later deleting the tweet. When contacted about the tweet, Deadspin's editor wrote that Farrar was joking and said the organization "supports his stance of trolling white supremacist-minded" groups. Kirk, the founder of Turning Point USA, said on "Fox & Friends" he was "stunned" at the comment by Farrar. "They disagree with us...

    Pope Francis on Saturday urged Latin Americas faithful to fight rampant violent crime against women including murder, while holding mass in Trujillo, Perus largest northern city. I wish to invite you to combat a plague across our Latin American region: the numerous cases of violent crimes against women, from beatings to rape to murder, the visiting pontiff told thousands in Trujillos main colonial-era square. Half of the 25 countries with the greatest number of murders of women are in Latin America, according to UN Women. In Argentina, the popes homeland, there were at least 254 murders of women in 2016...
