Turkey: Erdogan regime continues attacks on opposition media, raids Zaman offices

Victor LaszloRebel Commentator

Today, March 4 - 2016, police raided the offices of opposition newspaper, 'Today's Zaman'.   

Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, president of Turkey, has created a regime with, at times, the most journalists in jail in the world.
According to Buzzfeed, Turkey was holding 40 journalists in detention in 2013
In 2015, raids on other major Turkish dailies  for exposing complicity between the Erdoğan regime and the Islamic State resulted in two arrests.
In that case, Reporters from Cumhuriyet Daily exposed National Intelligence Agency (MİT) trucks full of weapons and ammunition headed for Turkmen fighters with the Islamic State, busted by border police.

The politics which precipitated the Armenian genocide are still active in Turkey’s internal workings.

This just goes to prove that you can never ever trust a Muslim. They only have one agenda and that is Death to all none Muslims.

The only way Canada can take back control of the situation is to deactivate Trudeau and his gang, any which way we can.
