Afghanistan
Govt: Anas Haqqani, Others ‘Will Not Return To Battlefield’
[ToloNews] The GMIC head provides details about post-release fate of freed Haqqani Network prisoners, and a source close to the Taliban
...Arabic for students...
says did not take place yesterday.

Firoz Bashar, head of the Government Media and Information Center, said on Wednesday that "international partners have assured us" that Anas Haqqani, Haji Mali Khan and Hafiz Rashid will "not return to the battlefield" and will "go to Qatar
...an emirate on the east coast of the Arabian Peninsula. It sits on some really productive gas and oil deposits, which produces the highest per capita income in the world. They piss it all away on religion, financing the Moslem Brotherhood and several al-Qaeda affiliates. Home of nutbag holy manYusuf al-Qaradawi...
and remain there."

Bashar also said that the government expects the release of the three Haqqani members to cause "violence to be reduced in the country" and that the move will make the Taliban open to "direct talks with the Afghan government."

At the moment, however, a source close to the Taliban in Kabul says the three Haqqani prisoners have not yet arrived in Qatar and the two American University of Afghanistan (AUAF) professors kidnapped by the Haqqani network
...a branch of the Afghan Taliban, based in Pakistain. The network is a family business founded by the later Jalaluddin Haqqani...
are "still in Pakistain."
In Pakistan? How very interesting.
President Ghani said on Tuesday that the "conditional" release of the three Haqqani Network members was intended as an exchange for Kevin King, 63, an American, and Kevin Weeks, 50, an Australian, both of who were kidnapped In 2016 while employed at the American University in Afghanistan.

"The exchange was supposed to take place last night, but due to some problems it didn't happen, and today it is supposed to take place," said Sayed Mohammad Akbar Agha, a former Taliban commander.

TOLOnews spoke to Abdul Fatah, whose 34-year-old son was killed in a 2017 truck bomb explosion in Zanbaq square, and asked him for a reaction to the planned release of Anas Haqqani:

"If this is done in the interest of the nation, and for the peace of our whole country, it is a good step and we wait for God," said Fatah.

The Haqqanis are a wholly owned branch of the Paki ISI. They, with ISI help, have also taken over leadership of the Taliban (a mostly owned branch of the ISI).

Afghan presidential poll results further delayed as IEC halts vote recount process
[KhaamaPress] The Independent Election Commission of Afghanistan has announced that it has halted the vote recount process across Afghanistan.

According to a statement released by election commission, the audit and recount process of votes has been stopped until further notice.

However,
denial ain't just a river in Egypt...
the election commission said the resolution will not apply on polling stations whose votes are under scrutiny and are being recounted.

This comes as certain electoral teams of Abdullah Abdullah
...the former foreign minister of the Northern Alliance government, advisor to Masood, and candidate for president against both Karzai and Ghani. Dr. Abdullah was born in Kabul and is half Tadjik and half Pashtun. He also held the meaningless salaried sop position as CEO of Afghanistan, while Ghani was president...
, Gulbuddin Hekmatyar
... who used to be known in intelligence circles as The Most Evil Man in the World but who now seems merely run-of-the-mill evil...
and Rahmatullah Nabil had called for the suspension of the vote recount process.

Meanwhile,
...back at the laboratory, Igor and Oleg were discussing what the quickest way might be to deal with the monster...
election commissioner Aurangzeb has said the election commission has postponed the preliminary vote results which were due to be announced on Thursday.

Aurangzeb further added that the election commission has postponed the preliminary vote results announced due to the existing tensions over vote recount process of more than eight thousand polling stations.

#1  "moderate islamist"?? The Baghdad Post considers the peripatetic 30 year leader of a Muslim Brotherhood chapter a moderate Islamist.

#2  Moderate Islamists allow infidels to live under the caliphate's "protection" as long as they pay the jizya tax. Better than being murdered outright you could say.

#3  2 points (freely given and worth ALMOST that much)
1. They probably got elected because they are less corrupt, than the other parties. Corruption is a huge problem and not just in the "Islamic world", particularly when combined with incompetence...which is often the case.
2. Moderate Islamist. I know some Muslims, and we've talked about this. "You guys have a problem, it can be summed up in the word Islamist. Either You deal with it...or we will. But one way or the other It Will be dealt with."

PS. Not sure if people really understand that for every Non-Muslim the Islamists kill, they kill 10 of the co-coreligionists.

#5  for every Non-Muslim the Islamists kill, they kill 10 of the co-coreligionists.

Which is a good thing really. If only the civilized world could find it's balls, the muzz could be deceitfully prodded to kill off each other in greater and greater numbers than are being born. And then someone could just put the remainder out of their misery.

Europe
EU's labeling of Israeli products originated with Neo-Nazi, Green parties
[Jpost] The EU’s top court has been engulfed since Tuesday in an antisemitic legal scandal because of its singling out of Jewish, Israeli products from the disputed territories for a punitive labeling system. Critics say the legal ruling is discriminatory.

One-Third of Young Prostitutes in Paris No-Go Suburbs Under 15-Years-Old
[BREITBART] Around one-third of young hookers in the Gay Paree suburbs of Seine-Saint-Denis are under 15, with some as young as just six, according to a local NGO.

The Observatory of violence against women in Seine-Saint-Denis published a study on underage hookers Tuesday, looking into 19 court cases in the juvenile court of Bobigny and around forty reports from French child protection services, La Belle France 3 reports.

The children in sex work in the controversial neighbourhood ranged from 17 to just six-years-old, with 89 per cent being prior victims of physical abuse and 40 per cent victims of prior sexual abuse, most of the abuse occurring within their own homes. 61 per cent of the mothers of the child sex abuse victims also reported domestic abuse as well.

Ernestine Ronai, head of the NGO, said that the goal of the study was to better understand the path that led to prostitution in order to better protect children in the future.

"The course of these girls’ lives is marked by violence," Ronai said and noted that the abuse led to failure in school which in turn led to the path to prostitution.

The study also found the important role social media plays in facilitating prostitution, saying 50 per cent of "clients" ‐ abusers ‐ used social media and the internet to approach the children for sexual favours.

The area studied for the report, Seine-Saint-Denis, has achieved a level of notoriety as a prime example of a so-called No Go Zone in La Belle France,
I’m confused. Were we not assured, in the strongest terms, that No Go zones do not exist?
or what the French government technically labels a Sensitive Urban Zone. It has become so difficult to retain staff to work in public services in the area the government now offers special cash incentives to civil servants not to move away, and the suburb has become synonymous with Islamisation, and often the most radical expressions of the Moslem faith.

Child sexual exploitation in vulnerable communities is not limited to La Belle France, however. In Sweden, journalists used the homosexual dating app Grindr while pretending to be a 14-year-old boy named David and found that over 100 adult men messaged the boy for sexual favours.

In another case, journalists claimed to be a 14-year-old girl on a website called "Sugar Daters" and had a man, later revealed to be an employee of Swedish broadcaster SVT, offer to pay the fake account £840 to take her virginity.

Child prostitution is also a major problem in the Netherlands where it was revealed last year that some 1,400 underage girls were forced into sexual slavery per year by migrant-background men. Gideon van Aartsen from Watch Nederland, who works with police to combat child sexual exploitation, said the men were mostly from Moroccan, Ottoman Turkish or Roma backgrounds and that they earned up to 800 euros per day from the child victims.

Iraq
Ammar al-Hakim stresses need to create fair electoral system
[THEBAGHDADPOST] Head of Wisdom Movement Ammar al-Hakim told Wednesday the President of the Kurdistan region, Nechirvan Barzani that it is important to create a fair electoral system and amend some articles of the Constitution.

Hakim said in a statement: "We discussed during our meeting with Barzani the developments in the political situation in Iraq and the region, demonstrators` demands and ways to achieve them to provide services and employment opportunities and contribute to the reform of the political process."

Hakim said: "The demonstrators` demands require the concerted efforts of political blocs. They are demands for reform and we will never allow to ignore them."

He stressed the importance of finding a fair electoral system and amend some articles of the Constitution in line with the changes and in a way that guarantees the rights of all.

He stressed the importance of demonstrating and exploiting the opportunity to get rid of some of the problems that have passed from the previous phases.

He pointed out to the duty of protecting the demonstrators and bring the perpetrators of bloodshed to justice.

Hakim added: "It is a need to protect public and private interests and sorting out those who seek to exploit the demonstrations to achieve special agendas."

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
How Israeli intel derailed Hamas’s ‘secret weapons’ for bigger war
[Jpost] For some time, Hamas, the braying voice of Islamic Resistance®, has bragged that it has all sorts of new "secret weapons" to use against Israel.

There has been a conflict going on between Israel and Gazoo
...Hellhole adjunct to Israel and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, inhabited by Gazooks. The place was acquired in the wake of the 1967 War and then presented to Paleostinian control in 2006 by Ariel Sharon, who had entered his dotage. It is currently ruled with an iron fist by Hamaswith about the living conditions you'd expect. It periodically attacks the Hated Zionist Entity whenever Iran needs a ruckus created or the hard boyz get bored, getting thumped by the IDF in return. The ruling turbans then wave the bloody shirt and holler loudly about oppression and disproportionate response...
now for nearly two days. How come Hamas has not yet, as of press time, used these advanced "secret weapons"?

#5  I’m out and about at the moment, and so away from my saved links but there was a study about a decade ago showing that the Palestinians at that time — through double counting Jerusalem, inflating births, and ignoring deaths and emigration, had over-counted their population growth by 1 million souls since Israel gave them self-rule... and therefor stopped doing their census. It’s probably considerably worse now. I am shocked that Stratfor fell for it— that does not bode well for their other predictions.

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
500 - 600 US troops to remain in Syria
[J-Post] America will leave a military presence on the ground to keep pressure on ISIS

Between 500 and 600 US troops will remain in Syria to keep pressure on ISIS, the chairman of America's Joint Chiefs of Staff has said.

President Donald Trump abruptly announced the withdrawal of all 1,000 American troops from the country last month, with the expectation that they would move into Iraq to continue the fight against Islamic State. However, he has since approved a mission to secure oil fields across eastern Syria, requiring a number of troops to stay in place.

“There will be less than a thousand, for sure,” Gen. Mark Milley said. "Probably in the 500ish frame, maybe six. It's in that area."

"There are still ISIS fighters in the region," he added, explaining: "Unless pressure is maintained – unless attention is maintained on that group – there's a very real possibility there could be a reemergence of ISIS. We committed to [prevent] that. The footprint will be small, but the objective will remain the same."

Following the successful targeting by US Special Forces of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi last month, Washington will be looking for an opportunity to remove his successor, Milley confirmed.

"They've apparently replaced him with another leader," he said. "We have a considerable amount of information on that individual. We'll see in the days ahead, weeks ahead, months ahead if he's able to piece together his organization. We'll pay attention to him and, where opportunities arise, we'll go after him as well."

But he added that, "it's not just Islamic State – it's other groups. I think we will be [there] for a significant amount of time. It's our national interests to be there to help out."
