UN investigators say most Syria rebels are not seeking democracy

Most Syrian rebel fighters do not want democracy and the country's civil war is producing ever worse atrocities and increasing radicalization, independent UN investigators said on Tuesday
Speaking to reporters in Paris, Brazilian expert Paulo Pinheiro said his team of investigators had documented horrific crimes on both sides, although the scale of those committed by President Basher al-Assad's forces was greater
"It was said the rebels were angels, but there is only a minority of fighters with a democratic history who believe in the Syrian mosaic and want a state for all," he said

"The majority of rebels are very far from having democratic thoughts and have other aspirations"

Plight of Syrian refugees stranded near Jordan border worsens

Thousands of Syrian refugees stranded near the closed border with Jordan, including mothers and babies, are running out of food and many need medical treatment, aid workers and refugees said on Wednesday
Jordan closed its northern border about 10 days ago after offering refuge to hundreds of thousands of Syrians who have fled violence since the revolt against President Basher al-Assad's rule began in March 2011
Syrians trying to enter through unofficial border crossings have also been turned back. Jordanian officials have given no explanation for the closure, according to refugees and aid workers who have had first-hand contact with border authorities
The kingdom has since allowed only a handful of refugees across. Even civilians seeking medical treatment have been turned back and only critically wounded people have entered, according to aid workers

'Diversity in Germany has become reality'

Two decades after one of the worst instances of anti-foreigner violence, racism still exists in Germany. But society has changed and, in an era of globalization, migration is normal, writes Der Tagesspiegel's Peter von Becker
Twenty years ago, two women of Turkish descent and three young girls were killed in their home during a far-right arson attack in Solingen, North-Rhine Westphalia. Three days earlier, on May 26th 1993, Germany's asylum laws were drastically tightened. It appeared at the time as a bleak triumph for xenophobes especially given earlier pogroms and racist attacks in places such as Hoyerswerda, Rostock and Mölln

Circassian activists in Turkey receive boost from Erdopig

On May 21, Circassians worldwide marked the 149th anniversary of the end of the Russo-Caucasian war. In the North Caucasus, the largest republic with a Circassian population, Kabardino-Balkaria, held multiple events marking the anniversary
Circassian claims received an unexpected boost from Turkey during the 149th anniversary of the war’s end. Selahattin Demirtaş, the chairman of the Kurdish Peace and Democracy Party in Turkey, spoke in favor of Turkey recognizing the Circassian genocide, which gave an important international boost to Circassian claims
“Turkey traditionally does not welcome topics related to genocide and pogroms,” Demirtaş said, “This morning, Circassian associations held protest actions in front of the Russian Embassy. In our turn, we intend to propose that parliament recognize the Circassian genocide and promote publicity for this issue in the international political arena”

As Syrian pislamists make gains, it's rebel against rebel

In parts of this battle-torn country, a second civil war has begun
In the north and east bordering Turkey and Irak, a stretch of Syria in rebel hands has split into competing fiefs. In some places, pislamist extremists with agendas that extend far beyond Syria are pushing aside the rebel battalions that started the insurgency against Basher al-Assad's regime in 2011
The resulting chaos has fragmented the rebel fight and created a playground for al kaeda just as a US debate heats up over how deeply to get involved

Iran set up terrorist networks in Latin America says Argentine prosecutor

An Argentine prosecutor accused Iran on Wednesday of establishing terrorist networks in Latin America dating back to the 1980s and said he would send his findings to courts in the affected countries

In a 500-page-long document, Nisman cited what he said was evidence of Iran's "intelligence and terrorist network" in Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay, Chile, Colombia, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago and Suriname - among others

Assad says Syria has received Russian missile shipment

President Basher al-Assad of Syria said in a television interview to be broadcast on Thursday that Russia had delivered an S-300 air defense missile system to his country, weapons that Israel has said present a threat to its security and against which it is willing to use force
A senior Israeli official, speaking on the condition of anonymity because of diplomatic constraints, said on Thursday that the S-300 missile systems “do not just come in a box” and that different elements would probably be delivered in stages. It is possible, he said, that some parts have arrived in Syria, but there is no indication at this stage that the systems are anywhere near operational
The Syrian government and the opposition have hardened their positions in recent days, casting doubt on the future of the proposed talks as each side declares a starting point that is thoroughly unacceptable to the other

Israel has lobbied Russia not to deliver the S-300 missiles to Syria. Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon warned on Tuesday that Israel would view such a move as a threat and that it could prompt an Israeli reaction

Rome paid African asylum shoppers to move to Germany

“Italy pays immigrants to go to Germany,” headlines Italy's Linkiesta, quoting an accusation by the Hamburg immigration office
The city’s authorities say they have arrested around 300 African immigrants holding expired temporary permits issued in Italy and demanded they be removed. The immigrants said they were explicitly told by Italian officials to head to Germany, the destination of choice for most immigrants arriving in the EU through Mediterranean country, and were given up to €500 if they agreed
According to the news site, Italian authorities have tacitly admitted their responsibility and declared themselves ready to take back the immigrants. Most of them were accepted as refugees because they fled the civil war in Libya in 2011 and the subsequent wave of xenophobic attacks, which followed Muammar Gaydaffi’s demise
The problem is that they are citizens of “countries listed as democratic like Ghana, Togo and Nigeria”, writes La Repubblica, meaning that in Germany they are not eligible for asylum granted to those fleeing violence

Afghan jihadis attack Red Cross office

koranderthals in suicide vests stormed a Red Cross compound in eastern Afghanistan, the second insurgent attack on a humanitarian organization in the country in less than a week, one of two attacks Wednesday that signaled a widening offensive
Earlier in the day, a taliban suicide squad tried to storm the provincial government compound in Afghanistan's Panjshir Valley, taking the war to an area that has been the heart of anti-taliban resistance, and largely been spared from bloodshed
One suicide bomber blew himself up at the gate of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Jalalabad on Wednesday, police officials said, and another entered the compound, triggering a gunbattle with Afghan security forces
Around two hours after the attack began, the exchange of fire subsided and security forces confirmed the second bomber was dead, according to Ministry of Interior spokesman Sedik Sediki. At least one guard was killed and one foreign employee was wounded and seven foreign staff members were evacuated. Sediki said local police in Jalalabad led the operations to clear the ICRC compound

Niger: Population explosion threatens development gains; fears about interrupted grain imports

If the people of Niger (Nigeriens) remain uninformed about family planning and keep reproducing at the current rate the country’s population will more than quadruple by 2050, imposing unmanageable demands on the economy, social services and the environment, according to research by Niger’s national statistics agency
Niger’s population is counted by the Institute for National Statistics (INS), which compiles its own data through national surveys and censuses and by collaborating with UN agencies. It calculates the current rate of population growth is 3.3% every year. If that growth continues, there will be 56 million people living in Niger by 2050, compared to 13.5 million today, the INS says. In 1960, Niger’s population was just 1.7 million

Russia to send more missiles to Syrian regime as EU lifts arms embargo on Syrian rebels

Russia has said it will go ahead with deliveries of advanced anti-aircraft missiles to Damascus as it accused the EU of “throwing fuel on the fire” of the Syrian war by lifting an arms embargo to rebels
The UK and France have won the freedom to supply weapons to Syrian rebel groups after they succeeded in dismantling the arms embargo Monday despite of determined opposition from fellow member states
Alexander Grushko, Moscow’s ambassador to NATO, told journalists that Russia would fulfil a contract signed in 2010 to supply President’s Basher al-Assad regime with S-300 surface-to-air missiles, equivalent to the US Patriot, with a 200km range
“We will fulfil the signed contracts. Russia has been acting in total compliance with international law,” he said. Grushko’s comments come despite private doubts among Russian officials and analysts that the deliveries will take place

The Russian decision was strongly condemned by two Israeli government officials. Yuval Steinitz, intelligence minister, said the missiles, which have a range of up to 300km, could strike “deep into the other side’s territory” and attack aircraft over Tel Aviv
