3. “Germany in three days and France in one hour”: Shock threat to EU from Erdogan backers
WARMONGERING rhetoric is being spewed by Turkey towards Europe after a newspaper close to the Turkish regime declared the country could overrun Germany in three days.
Newspaper Yeni Söz, closely aligned to the government, made the outlandish claim on the front page of its daily newspaper.
Carrying the provocative headline "Turkey can occupy Europe within 3 days”, the move is the latest in a political spat between Ankara and Berlin.
Turkey has been vying to join the EU for more than a decade, with official negotiants to become a member dragging into their 12th year.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan attempted to use the migrant crisis as a bargaining chip, striking a deal with Brussels over the crisis in exchange for political sweeteners, which included kick-starting their membership bid.

5. Muslims in Quebec City finally get land for burials
Quebec City's Muslim community will now have a place to bury their loved ones, after the city announced Friday it has conditionally accepted an offer from the Quebec Islamic Culture Centre to buy land near a well-known local cemetery.
The land is the site of a former snow dump next to the Notre-Dame-de-Belmont cemetery, close to the QICC, the mosque where six men were killed in a shooting in January.
Quebec City Mayor Régis Labeaume made the announcement Friday morning at a news conference at city hall.
"For over 400 years, Quebec has been a welcoming city for all cultures, languages and religions," said Labeaume, who said the French concept of "vivre ensemble" or living together, is "fundamental to the success of our society.”
Note: There are already Muslim only sections of other cemeteries, but Muslims have insisted that they have Muslim only graveyards.
