19 Civilians Killed, 45 Wounded Since Start of Talks: Watchdog
[ToloNews] The findings of the Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) indicate that in the first week since the start of the peace talks in Doha, 19 non-combatants were killed and 45 were maimed as a result of the conflict

The commission said that civilian casualties are unacceptable amid the efforts for peace in Doha.

"Between September 12 and September 19, 64 non-combatants were killed and maimed in various regions of the country," said Zabiullah Farhang, a front man for the AIHRC.

Afghan security sources have said that the scale of violence has expanded to 24 provinces of the country since the start of the Afghan negotiations in Doha on September 12.
A hint that a peace negotiation that isn’t complete government surrender is not what the Taliban have in mind.
"The violence continues and sometimes the scale of violence increases; the increase in violence has no justification," said Rasoul Talib, a member of the peace negotiating team representing the Islamic Theocratic Republic of Afghanistan.

According to the Afghan security agencies, an average of 30 members of the Afghan cops are being killed on daily basis.

On September 22, the Ministry of Interior Affairs said that its findings indicate that at least 98 non-combatants were killed and 230 others were maimed in Taliban
...the Pashtun equivalent of men...
attacks in 24 provinces in the last two weeks as violence increases in the country amid the ongoing peace efforts.

But the Taliban rejected these numbers, saying that the government’s major operations in nine provinces have increased the conflicts with the group.

Africa Horn
Armed militia kills at least 15 people in western Ethiopia
[AlAhram] An armed militia killed at least 15 people in a pre-dawn attack on Friday in western Æthiopia, the Æthiopian Human Rights Commission (EHRC) said in a statement late on Friday, the latest security challenge for Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed's government.

The attack follows another similar incident earlier this month that took place in the same Metakal zone of Æthiopia's Benishangul-Gumuz region,
...an underdeveloped Muslim region...
which borders Sudan, where 30 people were killed.

"Civilians are being subjected to repeated attacks with unmitigated cruelty in Benishangul-Gumuz," said Daniel Bekele, the head of the EHRC. "Federal and regional authorities should take the required steps to enforce the rule of law and bring perpetrators to account."

The Commission did not say what was behind the attacks and Abera Bayeta, the region's peace and security head, did not immediately respond to calls seeking comment.

The Commission said that the Æthiopian National Defense forces engaged in a shootout with armed button men in the area and were able to restore calm by Friday afternoon.

The killing is the latest incident of violence in the region. In June last year, men in camouflage uniforms killed more than 50 people and injured 23 in the same area.

Africa Subsaharan
Chad says troops killed 20 Boko Haram fighters, freed hostages
[AlAhram] The army pursued the raiders and attacked them on Thursday in Barkalam, near the Nigerian border, he said, "killing 15 terrorists" and "freeing 12 civilians."

Chadian soldiers killed 20 Boko Haram
... not to be confused with Procol Harum, Harum Scarum, possibly to be confused with Helter Skelter. The Nigerian version of al-Qaeda and the Taliban rolled together and flavored with a smigeon of distinctly Subsaharan ignorance and brutality...
jihadists and freed 12 civilians, including nine children, kidnapped in the Lake Chad area where several countries' borders meet, the government said Friday.

The jihadist group, which originated in Nigeria in 2009, has established bases on islets dotting Lake Chad, a vast swampy expanse on the border between Nigeria, Chad, Niger and Cameroon
...a long, narrow country that fills the space between Nigeria and Chad on the northeast, CAR to the southeast. Prior to incursions by Boko Haram nothing ever happened there...
It has stepped up attacks in the area in recent months.

On September 17, Boko Haram fighters raided a village in the restive zone and kidnapped the civilians, Communications Minister and government front man Cherif Mahamat Zene told AFP.

The army pursued the raiders and attacked them on Thursday in Barkalam, near the Nigerian border, he said, "killing 15 terrorists" and "freeing 12 civilians."

A little later, there was another encounter at Bilabrim in which five Boko Haram fighters were killed and two Chadian soldiers were maimed.

The Chadian army launched an offensive against Boko Haram in April after the deaths of some 100 soldiers in an attack by the group on one of its bases. President Idriss Deby then claimed to have pushed the jihadists out. But attacks have continued despite the military operation.

In Chad's Lake Province, more than 360,000 people have fled their homes to avoid attacks and also flooding, according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM).

The president admitted in early August that "Boko Haram would still do a lot of damage" in Chad.

Boko Haram's insurgency has killed more than 36,000 people and displaced more than two million from their homes. The violence has since spread to Niger, Chad and Cameroon.

Caucasus/Russia/Central Asia
Azerbaijan launched a missile and aerial attack against Artsakh and Stepanakert Armenia

Armenia: Azerbaijan attacked settlements in disputed Nagorno-Karabakh

[JPost] Armenia said early on Sunday that neighboring Azerbaijan had attacked civilian settlements in the Nagorno-Karabakh region and urged the population in the disputed region to seek refuge in shelters.

Armenia's Defense Ministry said that its troops had downed two Azerbaijani helicopters and three drones in response to an attack it said began at 0410 GMT against civilian settlements, including the regional capital of Stepanakert.

"Our response will be proportionate, and the military-political leadership of Azerbaijan bears full responsibility for the situation," the Armenian Defense Ministry said in a statement.

Azerbaijan's Defense Ministry, in turn, said it had launched a military operation along the "contact line," a heavily-mined no-man's-land that separates the Armenian-backed forces from Azeri troops in the region, Russian news agencies reported.

The ministry said that an Azerbaijani helicopter had been downed but that its crew had survived.

The two former Soviet countries have long been in conflict over Azerbaijan's breakaway, mainly ethnic-Armenian region of Nagorno-Karabakh, and border clashes have intensified in recent months.

Armenia's Foreign Ministry condemned what it called the "aggression of the military-political leadership of Azerbaijan" and said the Armenian side would deliver an appropriate military and political response.

Ethnic Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh declared independence during a conflict that broke out as the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991.

Though a ceasefire was agreed in 1994, Azerbaijan and Armenia frequently accuse each other of attacks around Nagorno-Karabakh and along the separate Azeri-Armenian frontier

Exiled Turkish journalist attacked in Stockholm suburb
[NORDICMONITOR] Swedish-based Ottoman Turkish journalist Abdullah Bozkurt was attacked by three men yesterday near his home in Stockholm, sending him to the hospital for injuries sustained.

Bozkurt and his team of journalists in Sweden run the Nordic Monitor news website which provides exclusive and critical coverage on The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the occupiers of Greek Asia Minor...
and exposes the clandestine activities of the notorious Ottoman Turkish intelligence agency.

"Within minutes of leaving my home, one of the three men approached me from behind and unexpectedly knocked me down. As I fell to the asphalt pavement, they started punching me in the face and on the head," Bozkurt said, adding that the perpetrators then bravely ran away.

The Swedish police were called in to investigate the incident while paramedics arrived at the home of the journalist, who was later advised to go to a nearby emergency room for a more thorough check-up.

Bozkurt sustained injuries to the face, head, arms and legs from the violent mostly peaceful attack, which occurred in the middle of the day near a parking place next to his home in the Spånga suburb of Stockholm.

4. Are you trying to gaslight us?

BREAKING: Multiple Injuries After Car Plows Through Crowd of Trump Supporters in Yorba Linda, California (VIDEO)
[GatewayPundit] A vehicle plowed through a crowd of Trump supporters in Yorba Linda, California, on Saturday.

The incident reportedly took place in a parking lot.

Violence broke out as supporters of President Donald Trump staged a counter protest against a Black Lives Matter demonstration organized by the Urban Organizers Coalition.
Another associated group for the feds to track and trace...
The pro-Trump crowd reportedly confronted the militant leftists while chanting "USA," leading to multiple fights prior to the car driving through the crowd of patriots.

"At least two people were injured, including a man who was bloodied. Ambulances were summoned. People chased the car, which eventually stopped and was surrounded by sheriff’s deputies," the OC Register reports.

A far-left reporter at the scene tweeted that there was "more violence than I’ve ever seen at one of these things."

The driver of the car, a woman, has not been arrested, according to the OC Register. ABC 7 reports that they have been detained, however, according to a statement from the Sheriff’s Department.

At least one person has been transported to the hospital with injuries.

An unlawful assembly was declared and the police have been working to clear the scene.

I understand the sentiment even if the tactics and motives are different; this is a PR war as much as anything.

Posted by: Fred || 09/27/2020 00:00 || Comments || Link || E-Mail|| [6485 views] Top|| File under: Antifa/BLM


Washington State Legal code
RCW 9A.36.031
Assault in the 3rd Degree.

(1)(g) Assaults a law enforcement officer or other employee of a law enforcement agency who was performing his or her official duties at the time of the assault... This is a 3rd degree assault and is a class C felony in Washington State. A 3rd degree assault charge comes with up to 5 years in prison and fines of up to $10,000.

Having read the reports this should have fallen under RCW 9A.36.011 1st Degree Assault
"Assaulting another and inflicting great bodily harm". 1st Degree Assault is a Class A Felony that carries a potential sentence of 7 to 10+ years in prison and fines up to $50,000 for a first time offender and life in prison for a repeat offender.

#1  To place one race above another is RACIST.
To assault, injure, destroy property of a person because they refuse adopt one Race or a groups Racial Agenda over another, is RACIST & FASCIST.

Therefore, base on what history and yes even the 60's to the 90's Liberals have taught me.

BLM and Anti-Fa are a group of RACISTS & FASCISTS.

NOTE: Both of the of these Groups strongly support National Socialism.

History Note: National Socialism started in 1930's. It was called NAZI Germany and they practiced one Race along with attacking those of another Race.

BTW: Just to really screw with your minds The word IRAN means "the land of Aryans " in Persian. Iran sided with Nazi Germany early in WWII until invaded by USA/UK forces 1941-42. PLUS we know US (DC level) Socialist and Democrat Elected Officials have had ongoing private talks and deals with IRAN in the last 8 years.

IRAN, like Nazi Germany, the Socialist-Democrat / Democrat Party, ANTI-FA and BLM all have openly Anti-Jewish Leaders and elected officials. All are willing to and have killed those that impeded the enforcement of their Racial and Political agenda, rules and demands.

In the USA, they call for "Defund the Police and also shoot them". An also do the same to Pro-America agenda citizens that step in their way.

Take 10 mins and compare BLM and ANTI-FA (Brown Shirts) Rioting and Looting to Nazi Germany attacks, assaults, arson's, and property confiscations.

Palestinians say Egyptian fire killed two Gaza fishermen
[Ynet] The bodies of two Palestinian fishermen who Palestinian officials say were shot dead by Egyptian naval forces were returned to Gaza on Saturday, the territory's ruling Islamist group Hamas said.

The fishermen, who were brothers, were shot on Friday off the coast near the southern border town of Rafah. A third brother was wounded and was undergoing treatment in Egypt.

"There is no justification for the repeated violent treatment against those who seek to eke out a living for their children," said a Hamas statement.

Egyptian officials could not immediately be reached for comment and it was unclear whether the fishing boat had crossed into Egyptian waters.
Smugglers, no doubt. Or would-be smugglers, anyway.

Lebanon's prime minister-designate steps down in blow to French initiative
...an Iranian colony situated on the eastern Mediterranean, conveniently adjacent to Israel. Formerly inhabited by hardy Phoenecian traders, its official language is now Arabic, with the usual unpleasant side effects. The Leb civil war, between 1975 and 1990, lasted a little over 145 years and produced 120,000 fatalities. The average length of a ceasefire was measured in seconds. The Lebs maintain a precarious sectarian balance among Shiites, Sunnis, and about a dozeen flavors of Christians. It is the home of Hezbollah, which periodically starts a war with the Zionist Entity, gets Beirut pounded to rubble, and then declares victory and has a parade. The Lebs have the curious habit of periodically murdering their heads of state or prime ministers...
’s prime minister-designate quit on Saturday after trying for almost a month to line up a non-partisan cabinet, dealing a blow to a French bid aimed at rallying sectarian leaders to tackle the worst crisis since the nation’s 1975-1990 civil war.

Mustapha Adib, former ambassador to Berlin, was picked on Aug. 31 to form a cabinet after President Emmanuel Macron intervened to secure a consensus on naming him.

Under the French roadmap, the new government would take swift steps to tackle corruption and implement reforms needed to trigger billions of dollars of international aid to fix an economy that has been crushed by a mountain of debt.

Car bomb kills 7 in northeastern Syria
[THEBAGHDADPOST] A boom-mobile killed at least seven civilians in a Ottoman Turkish-controlled area of northeastern Syria on Saturday, Syria’s state-run news agency
...and if you can't trust the state-run news agency who can you believe?...
and a war monitor reported.

SANA said the blast went off at the southern entrance to the city of Ras al-Ayn. Ottoman Turkish troops and allied Syrian fighters captured the area last October when Ankara invaded northeastern Syria to drive away Syrian Kurdish fighters from the shared border.

Ankara views the Kurdish fighters as gunnies for their links to a Kurdish insurgency inside The Sick Man of Europe Turkey
...the only place on the face of the earth that misses the Ottoman Empire...
. The fighters had however partnered with the US against the ISIS group.

The Britannia-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Syria war monitor, said seven people were killed and ten of others were maimed in the car-bomb explosion near the industrial area in the south of Ras al-Ayn city.
