Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
Interesting. So EU prisons are full, the court system is backlogged, and law enforcement are over capacity?
EU Counter-terrorism Coordinator Gilles de Kerchove criticized his home country Belgium for having no options to deal with its citizens, who joined radical groups such as Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) and went to fight in the Middle East, but then returned to Europe.
“If there is no evidence that they are an active jihadi – for instance, they crossed the border and spent a week with the organization but were really just washing dishes, a fourth-rank foot soldier, then saw people beheaded and rushed to leave, saying, ‘I made a big mistake’ – is it really worth putting them on the trail that leads to prison?” he told the Guardian.
A trade agreement recently occurred between Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Tiran and Sanafir were gifted to Saudi Arabia, and Egypt in return received lots of money, (and loans).
Stratfor published an article praising a proposed land bridge near Tiran Island.
Meanwhile Turkey is also flashing the cash by creating a new militant force…
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has announced the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has accepted his proposal to create a multinational police center based in Istanbul to battle international terrorism. The new structure is to be called the OIC Center for Police Cooperation and Coordination.
“It would be helpful to establish a structure among member states that will strengthen and institutionalize cooperation against terror and other crimes,” he said, during a speech at the two-day OIC summit, as over 30 heads of states from Islamic countries gathered in Istanbul.
Less than a week after Saudi Arabia visited Erdogan…
The OIC summit, which is due to discuss terrorism, Palestine, and regional conflicts such as Yemen, is likely to include an attempt by King Salman to rally the Sunni world behind his leadership. Salman will also try to reconcile Erdoğan to Egypt’s new military-backed government, which overthrew the elected, Turkish-backed Muslim Brotherhood president, Mohammed Morsi, in 2013.
Erdoğan wants Morsi’s death sentence commuted. Bringing together these two major Sunni powers is a key Saudi strategic aim.
