Turkish Man On TV Dating Show Reveals He Killed Two Previous Lovers

Well this could be a difference in cultural approaches to dating, but I suspect that even in Turkey this gentleman is going to struggle to find a new love interest. Reuters reports on his revelation on a televised dating show:

A man who appeared on a Turkish television dating show in search of a new partner shocked the audience by revealing he had murdered his former wife and a former lover.

Sefer Calinak, 62, told Flash TV’s “Luck of the Draw” he had served prison sentences for each of the murders and had been released under an amnesty programme.

“I’m an honest person looking for a new wife,” he told the show, saying he killed his first wife because he was “irritated” by her behavior and murdered a subsequent partner because he thought she was after his money…

Here’s a video clip of the moment that Mr. Calinak reveals his murders:

Interview and Discussion on Current State of Affairs in Turkey

turkey

Turkey is one of the major players involved in the Syrian conflict (2), it is an area of interest in the pipeline wars, and is paying a high price due to the destabilization of the region brought about by the 2003 U.S. led invasion of Iraq. In short, the shit is hitting the fan in Turkey.

Below you will find an excellent interview and discussion with Sibel Edmonds on The Corbett Report regarding the current state of affairs in Turkey and what the future may hold for the region.

“In this exclusive interview for the Boiling Frogs Post Eyeopener report, FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds discusses her recent article, “Turkish PM Erdogan: The Speedy Transformation of an Imperial Puppet”. We talk about Erdogan’s falling out with Fethullah Gülen and the CIA, and how serviceable puppets are discarded by their shadow government masters when they reach their ‘expiration date.’”

Halal Sex Shop Opens For Muslims

Screen Shot 2013-10-25 at 10.54.27 AMJust what is Halal sex, you may well ask. Reuters explains:

A Turkish entrepreneur has opened what he says is the country’s first online sex shop for Muslims, selling everything from lubricants to herbal aphrodisiacs and offering advice on how to have “halal” sex.

Haluk Murat Demirel, 38, said he had been inspired to launch the site (www.bayan.helalsexshop.com) by friends who wanted sex advice and products but found the content on other websites and in specialist stores too explicit.

“Online sex shops usually have pornographic pictures, which makes Muslims uncomfortable. We don’t sell vibrators for example, because they are not approved by Islam,” Demirel said.

Sexual mores provoke frequent debate in the majority Muslim but constitutionally secular country. There are relatively few sex shops, even in major cities, although in parts of Istanbul those that do exist advertise themselves with neon signs…

Target is Still Iran: Clear Cutting the Middle East and the Coming Blood Bath (Mapping World War III)

world conflicts large

I. Introduction

One of the main reasons that we are on the brink of one of the greatest global catastrophes ever known to human civilization is because people do not have a clear picture of what is happening in the world.

“The chorus of denunciations of the New Hitlers in Teheran and the threat they pose to survival has been marred by a few voices from the back rooms. Former Mossad Chief Ephraim Halevy recently warned that an Israeli attack on Iran ‘could have an impact on us for the next 100 years.’” – Noam Chomsky, August 6, 2008

To remedy the lack of appreciation of this situation, the following maps are being presented to help in the visualization of what the United States of America is proposing, referred to as a crusade by some, World War III (2):

But even with the help of the Israelisespecially with the help of the Israelis!

Turkish Government Says Defence Engineers’ Suicides May Have Been Caused By Telekinesis

telekinesis

Military espionage by suicide-inducing mind control? The Hürriyet Daily News reports:

The suspicious suicides of four engineers working at the Turkish military research and development corporation ASELSAN could have been caused by telekinesis, according to a report by the Turkish Prime Ministry Inspection Board.

The report, presented to the Ankara Public Prosecutor in accordance with the ongoing investigation over the 2006-2007 suicides, claimed the victims could have been directed toward the suicides by way of telekinesis, citing the work done by neuropsychology expert Nevzat Tarhan.

Hüseyin Başbilen, an engineer at ASELSAN, committed suicide in his car on Aug. 7, 2006. Halim Ünal was shot in the head with one bullet on Jan. 17, 2007, while Evrim Yançeken fell from the balcony of his sixth-floor apartment nine days later. Burhanettin Volkan allegedly killed himself in 2009.

The engineers were working on a friend-or-foe recognition system for Turkish warplanes at the time of their suicides.

Interview With American Living In Turkey: ‘People Are Still Very Energized’

I spoke earlier today with “Natasha,” an American living in Istanbul, Turkey, to get her take on the recent wave of massive protests throughout Turkey — I wanted to know what initially sparked the protests, how the riot police have responded, and what the average Turk thinks of all this.

The protesting in Turkey “isn’t like the Arab Spring,” in her view, and instead reflects focused anger and disappointment over a particular politician, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan… rather than some kind of sweeping societal change.

Also, although the economic situation in Turkey sounds tough for young people, it honestly doesn’t sound much worse than the job climate that recent university graduates here in the United States face.

I asked her if she felt the protests were wrapping up at this point. “I don’t think it’s dying down at all… people are still very energized,” she replied.

Listen to our whole interview right here, she also speaks about Turkish anger over their media’s lack of coverage — and the media’s tendency to side with police forces’ official story, rather than the protesters:

Sharing a Story from My Father: In Commemoration of the Armenian Genocide

I. Introduction

Growing up I was always reminded of the Armenian genocide, of my ancestral history. It was so normal to hear the elders talk about it that it didn’t really faze me, not until I wrote a research paper on it in university. That’s when it hit me, and it was devastating.

It became real when I read documented accounts of what had happened and saw photos of the atrocities. It became real when I came across a historical novel detailing parts of what had transpired. The deportations, the concentration camps, the death marches, the massacres; it all became real when I realized that it wasn’t just stories my elders were sharing; it was what they lived through. It was their life story.

I was confused at first. I couldn’t grasp it. I was wounded. Grief, anger, and frustration took over. I couldn’t focus on anything else for quite some time.… Read the rest

Doctors In Turkey Clinically Diagnose Man As Real-Life Vampire

Live Science reports on a horrifying case of multiple personality disorder:

Doctors in Turkey have described what they claim to be a real-life vampire with multiple personalities and an addiction to drinking blood. The case study was published last fall.

The 23-year-old apparently started out slicing his own arms, chest and belly with razor blades, letting the blood drip into a cup so he could drink it. But when he experienced compulsions to drink blood “as urgent as breathing,” he started turning to other sources, the doctors said. The man was arrested several times after stabbing and biting others to collect and drink their blood. He apparently even got his father to get him bags from blood banks.

“Possibly due to ‘switching’ to another personality state, he was losing track during the ‘bloody’ events, did not care who the victim was anymore, and remained amnesic to this part of his act,” the report said.

Yalvac (Turkey): A woman heavily pregnant with the child of her rapist, killed the perpetrator and left his severed head in the local village square, Sun reported.

The woman five-months pregnant with the rapist’s child has been pleading with authorities to let her have an abortion—although the law prohibits any woman beyond ten-weeks pregnant from taking such an action.

Sun reported that when police arrested her in the south-western village of Yalvac she told them that the head was of the one who ‘toyed with her honour.’

Womens’ groups in Turkey have praised the mother of two as a heroine after it emerged she was being blackmailed by her attacker.

Why is Hitler Selling Shampoo on Turkish TV? (Video)

Biomen Hitler CommercialReports Ayla Jean Yackley on Reuters:
A Turkish shampoo commercial featuring an enraged Adolf Hitler is a "huge insult to human rights" and should be withdrawn, leaders of the country's Jewish community said on Monday. The 13-second television spot for Biomen shampoo shows black-and-white archival footage of the Nazi leader at a political rally. Dubbed in Turkish, he shouts that men should not use women's shampoo.
