BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:15 A.M.) – Turkey announced on Thursday that it had “suspended the passage of the Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias’ plane, last night, through its airspace, after the Turkish aviation authorities were late in allowing it to cross from Iraq,” noting that this was not intentional.

The Turkish Foreign Ministry said, in a statement in response to what was reported by the Greek media on this subject:

“The allegations about intentionally keeping a plane with the Greek Foreign Minister in the air are unfounded,” stressing that “the Greek Foreign Minister’s plane took off from Iraq without presenting a flight plan. ”

The Turkish Foreign Ministry added that “the Greek minister’s plane completed its flight safely after the Iraqi authorities submitted the flight plan,” noting that “it is not possible for any plane to conduct its flight in our airspace without prior permission, and in this incident providing the safety of the Greek Foreign Minister is necessary.”

Greek media reported that “the Turkish Air Force intercepted the plane of the Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias over the Turkish-Iraqi airspace, specifically in the airspace of Mosul, after refusing the flight permit provided by Greece.”

The Greek ERT channel reported that the Turkish authorities had intercepted the plane of the Greek Foreign Minister and kept it in the airspace for about 20 minutes. The channel said, “This act goes beyond the concept of good neighborliness and violates the rules of diplomatic conduct.”

Relations between Greece and Turkey has been troubled by several disputes, ranging from the right of every state in the areas of the Mediterranean and even the dispute over Cyprus, ethnically divided between the two countries.

Turkey commits every chicanery it can to show its power.
The EU should close it air to Turkish fights as retaliation.

Turkey has invaded and illegally occupied 36% of Cyprus.

Nice find. But IMHO there are other and more reasons. After the plan of a Jihadist Syria on Russia’s back door failed – the geo-strategic school that follows Mackinder like  successors: Brzeziński, Francis Fukuyama, Robert Kagan, William Kristol, Richard Perle, Charles Krauthammer, Edward Luttwak, Samuel P. Huntington, Paul Wolfowitz…not to forget Friedman who claims that Turkey can eat Germany in a day and France in half that time) tries it closer to the bears nest. https://(/geopolitical/nato-energy-geopolitics-and-conflict-caucasus Note: Rick Rozoff is linked to  Réseau Voltaire International  but IMHO his ideas are possible reality. p.s.

Thank you. Nice find. I linked as usual with such finds.

For some odd reason my freak browser lands me here: https://www.globalresearch.ca/administration-s-offenses-impeachable/55

The site Global Research is controversial anyway.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michel_Chossudovsky#Centre_for_Research_on_Globalization

But I think I found a similar article from a another source.

https://www.middleeastmonitor.com/20160228-why-an-israeli-newspaper-wanted-to-flatten-a-city-of-millions/

Yeast: Israel will apply disproportionate force if attacked.

But this source is also attacked by some.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Middle_East_Monitor

Because it is connected to Middle East Eye and possibly Muslim Brotherhood..

But with the right search word I found lots of links that comment on the original article.

Wikipedia continuously edited by Zionist Revisionists used in Shools.

Look for Zionist editing on Wikipedia on one of Wikipedia’s sister projects: comment image Wiktionary (dictionary) comment image Wikibooks (textbooks) comment image Wikiquote (quotations) comment image Wikisource (library) comment image Wikiversity (learning resources) comment image Commons (media) comment image Wikivoyage (travel guide) comment image Wikinews (news source) comment image Wikidata (linked database).

Thank you. Interesting link collection. I linked your whole post. Course: Zionist Editing on Wikipedia Not only the Zionists but many interested groups fight for influence and the rule of their views in the web and on Wikipedia. You have to take that into account when researching. You can do so by trying to find out what sources are cited …who pays the sources and people… who works for whom or has worked… collaborated … was educated… There is a Wiki page about some things going on.

The activities are even mentioned a Wikipedia article.

In May 2007, Hasbara Fellowships (co-sponsored by the Israeli Foreign Ministry) called for volunteers to counter a “dangerous trend” of Wikipedia entries portraying Israel in a “negative light”. Interested readers were encouraged to consider “joining a team of Wikipedians to make sure Israel is presented fairly and accurately”

Not true. They are the eternal victims.
Sovereignty, State, Entity. A Jewish homeland not a Jewish state.

…It’s actually quite simple. If it isn’t the “acknowledged” Sovereign Territory of Lebanon, Syria, Jordan,Egypt or Israel,then it’s a territory of Palestine…israel has no fixed borderson may-22-1948 Israel confirmed its borders in a letter to the unsc the hasbara does not explain, it justifies the usurping of the Palestinians.

IMHO you are overlooking some facts. It does not say what the passage from the Balfour Promise means. a national home for the Jewish people So we must put it into its original historical context. Historically the San Remo Resolution of 1920 included the Balfour Declaration.This plus Article 22 of the Covenant of the League of Nations were the basic documents upon which the British Mandate for Palestine was constructed. https://avalon.law.yale.edu/20th_century/leagcov.asp#art22 The character of the mandate must differ according to the stage of the development of the people, the geographical situation of the territory, its economic conditions and other similar… Read more »

p.s. the intention changes IMHO 2 years later in the text that gives the mandate. https://avalon.law.yale.edu/20th_century/palmanda.asp#art2 ART. 2.The Mandatory shall be responsible for placing the country under such political, administrative and economic conditions as will secure the establishment of the Jewish national home, as laid down in the preamble, and the development of self-governing institutions, So it will create the Jewish national home and self governing institutions. That is IMHO a Jewish state or a co state in a federation. But it is no exclusive state for the Arabs. and also for safeguarding the civil and religious rights of all… Read more »

Whether occupied, conquered or reconquered.

All require the same access to medical care.

Turkey is starting WW3. Greek and Arabs
”October 1 Erdogan told Turkish lawmakers
“Some countries in our region did not exist yesterday, and they may not exist in the future, but God willing, we will continue to raise our flag in this region forever.”
He was apparently referring to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, and other Gulf countries.”Published in Arabic on Twitter.

Erdogan is starting WWI again. Greek and Arabs – and all EU. He is not satisfied with the results of the Lausanne peace treaty that ended WWI and the Caliphate. In the same speech he claims “2200 years of uninterrupted state tradition” in Turkey’s history. Not bad for a nation that only came to Anatolia after 1071 and did a relaunch as an independent state after 1923. But quite seriously – I do see Erddogan’s Turkey as one of those countries that have no roots, no traditions, and no morals, and which derive their power from colonialism and greed. Because… Read more »

Yes .. Hollywood Samson Option.. thank you.

Why you never mention Deir Yassin. Menahem Begin massacre that made Palestinians flee Haifa at early hours of the morning when he and his men came with loud speakers shouting: ”You have 20 minutes to leave or what happened in Deir Yassin will happen to you!!”.

Women were running barefoot in night gowns with children screaming ‘Dier Yassin” ”Deir Yassin’…’Was that War? Or TERRORISM?

Terrorism. I know that not all fled because of Arab war propaganda – which our French friend always claims. 🙁

Farmers usually stay in their villages – or return right away.
I have reason to know this. I am from a refugee family.

p.s. Large parts of the material that the Army Archives hold about the massacre, including photos and witness reports, are under lock and key to this day, as they would damage Israel’s international reputation.

After what the Muslim nations did to the Mizrachim, the Zionists and Ashkenazim need not worry. Israel was given a determined fast growing population that had been wronged and will fight to the knife if needed. I am as confident about that – like I was about the eventual outcome of the Syrian war during the Ramadan of 2012. p.s. If you researched who controls most of Western MSM you would find out that they are Gulf Arab and Zionist owned. The only area they do not yet outright owned – is the net. So their reputation matters little. They… Read more »
