From a prison cell to the Mayor's office to another prison cell: read more about the strange journey of 25-year old political activist Rezan Zugurli in the two articles linked below.
1. The armies of the darkness are descending on Ukraine to fight pro-Russian activists, protesters, and militants and to secure power for the usurping coup government in Kiev. The latest group of terrorist mercenaries are leaving war-torn Syria, after getting their asses kicked, to head off to eastern Ukraine under the orders of the terrorist ring leaders in Saudi Arabia. Stephen Lendman wrote on May 6:
Last July, Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan visited Moscow. He tried bribing Vladimir Putin.2. Turkey held local elections in late March. It went well. Citizens of Lice in Diyarbakır Province elected Rezan Zugurli, a 25-year old former political prisoner who became the youngest mayor of the country. But it didn't last long. Less than a month and a half later, Turkish authorities sentenced Zugurli to 4 years and 2 months in prison for participating in anti-regime demonstrations.
In return for billions of dollars in Russian arms purchases and other economic incentives, he wanted him to stop supporting Assad.
He chose the wrong leader. Putin isn’t for sale. He rejected Bandar’s blood money. He diplomatically said no deal.
3. The future president of Egypt, General al-Sisi, has promised to end the threat that the Muslim Brotherhood poses to the Egyptian state and people by finishing off the organization once and for all. In a recent interview on Egyptian television, the first he has ever given, General al-Sisi said:
El-Sissi's comments were a stark signal of his intention to ensure the elimination of the 86-year-old Brotherhood as both a political and ideological force in the country. He is building on an unprecedented popular resentment of the group, after its rise to power in the last three years.
Asked whether the Brotherhood will no longer exist under his presidency, el-Sissi replied, "Yes. Just like that."
"It's not me that finished it, the Egyptians have. The problem is not with me," he said.
