Firing close to Canada Parliament building, one soldier shot at

Ottawa: A Canadian soldier was shot at the Canadian War Memorial in Ottawa and a shooter was seen running towards the nearby parliament buildings, where more shots were fired, according to media and eyewitness reports on Wednesday.

The buildings were put on lockdown as police and tactical teams converged on the area. The wounded soldier was taken into an ambulance where medical personnel could be seen giving him cardio-pulmonary resuscitation.

The shooting comes two days after an Islamic convert ran down two Canadian soldiers with his car, killing one, near Montreal, before being shot and killed by police.

Firing close to Canada Parliament building, one soldier shot at

The buildings were put in lockdown as police and tactical teams converged on the area.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper was safe and has left the parliament buildings, his office said in an email.

A construction worker on the scene told Reuters he heard a gunshot, and then saw a man dressed in black with a scarf over his face running towards parliament with a gun.

The man stopped a black car at gunpoint and hijacked it, construction worker Scott Walsh told Reuters. The driver got out safely, then the man drove the car to the Centre Block on Parliament Hill, where construction work is underway.

The gunman rushed past a woman with a child in a stroller, who ran away screaming. He did not attack the woman or child, Walsh said.

Centre Block is the main building at Parliament Hill, a sprawling complex of buildings and open space in downtown Ottawa. It contains the House of Commons and Senate chambers, as well as the offices of some members of parliament, senators, and senior administration for both legislative houses.

A Globe and Mail reporter in Centre Block on Parliament Hill tweeted that the building was under lockdown after “at least one shooter burst in and opened fire



There has been a shooting in the Canadian Parliament buildings.

Added:  also at the War Memorial diagonally across the street from the Parliament Buildings (as if the shooter went from the War Memorial to the Parliament Buildings).

Addedtweet (Peggy Nash, MP):

“Very frightening here in ctr block. So many shots. I’m safe but not sure what’s happening.”

Tweet (Jordan Press):

“Hill witness tells me he saw a man pull up in a car by War Memorial on Elgin Street, open fire w/ long rifle.

This reporting by Twitter of a crime as it continues is kind of exciting.

Addedtweet (Seb FoxAllen):

“Oh no. RT : Here is a photo from our office window of situation at war memorial.

Added: tweet (Tony Clement):

“Shots fired during caucus meeting. at least 30 shots. MPs piled out. I’m safe with 2 colleagues but we’re still at risk…”

**Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari has for years been speaking the truth of Syria’s fight against the zionist-nato-turkey-gulf terrorist coalition.

Note: Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari, hence Syria, re-affirms “the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination, and building an independent state from it’s whole territory with Jerusalem as its capital, the right of refugees to return to their lands, their homes (as per ’48 resolution 194). This is a NON NEGOTIABLE right, this is a right that will never disappear… Syria condemns the ‘israeli’ violence against the Palestinian people in the Gaza Strip. This is a yet another new chapter in the overall plot, the overall aggression against the Palestinian people. ‘israel’s’ continuation of such acts of aggression has exacerbated tension in the region. They have reached an unprecedented level, one which will have very heavy consequences which of course will not be limited to the region alone.”

Dr. al-Jaafari noted the training camps for terrorists, who are sent across Syrian borders…violations of the Council… “the very same states which back terrorism in my country are also working to protect ‘israel’ …covering up its crimes…The United States has not just used the right of veto 61 times to protect ‘israel’ and to prolong its occupation of our territories which suffer under its occupation… no, the United States have even disregarded Security Council resolutions  in the past, to forge illegal alliances, targeting the sovereignty of a great many members states of this organization … illegitimate alliances forged by the united states and the united kingdom outside the confines of the council, have resulted in nothing more than violence, destruction, anarchy and terrorism throughout the world…”


“Syria’s permanent ambassador to the United Nations has called on the world body to punish “the terrorist coalition of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Israel”.

At a UN Security Council session on Tuesday, Bashar al-Jaafari said the coalition has been seeking to destroy Syria by fanning the flames of terrorism and shedding the blood of Syrian people.

…The Syrian envoy to the UN further voiced support for the Palestinian people, saying the terrorist coalition aims to destroy any solution for the formation of a sovereign Palestinian state….”

Libya: Security mayhem a living hell for Benghazi residents

Published Wednesday, October 22, 2014
Benghazi – Since October 15, the fighting that has been taking place on the outskirts of the city and in some of its districts, following calls made on social media sites and by some commanders affiliated to General Khalifa Haftar, has made it impossible for the residents to carry out about their normal lives.
Clashes have intensified between Haftar’s forces and the 21st and 204th brigades in the city on the one hand, and the forces of the Shura Council of Benghazi Revolutionaries on the other. Some citizens in the city complied with calls made by the leaders of the so-called Operation Dignity, with some closing down main roads and establishing checkpoints manned by both civilians and militants.
The clashes are the most violent yet since the start of Operation Dignity in May. Movement in the city has been paralyzed, and crossing from one part of Benghazi to another is now increasingly difficult because of the checkpoints, forcing people to travel longer distances to reach their destinations.

So far, the fighting on the outskirts of the city has killed 73 people, and displaced a number of residents further inside Benghazi or outside the city.

So far, the fighting on the outskirts of the city has killed 73 people, and displaced a number of residents further inside Benghazi or outside the city. In the meantime, healthcare services have been hit hard by these clashes, as it has become difficult for hospital staff to reach their workplace.
In this regard, a doctor at al-Hawari Hospital, the second largest hospital in the city, said his staff were not coming to work out of fear for their lives. The doctor said there was a large number of injured patients at the hospital, and confirmed that some shells had fallen on the building, but without causing any injuries so far.
The doctor pointed out that patients themselves sometimes find it difficult to reach the hospital, saying that no party was working on securing it. Although the doctor said there were no shortages in medicines, he said the hospital could face difficulties when ordering drugs or tests from outside the hospital.
In the same vein, some parents have told their daughters working at hospitals in the city not to go to work because of the security situation. This has also affected the healthcare sector, especially since the proportion of women working in healthcare is relatively large.
For its part, the media office of the Red Crescent in Benghazi confirmed that its personnel are attempting to deliver aid and recover bodies from affected areas, adding that an operations room it runs was working around the clock in coordination with the parties to the conflict. The source pointed out that the Red Crescent’s capacity to cope was reduced because of the absence of the International Committee of the Red Cross and Red Crescent in the city, pointing out that this delayed the arrival of aid usually allocated by the international organization for conflict zones.
Meanwhile, grocers are talking about skyrocketing prices, citing the security situation and the difficulty of restocking their supplies, amid shortages in a number of goods.
Information on the security situation in the city remains scarce. Clashes have spread to different locations, but there is a lack of credible reports to help keep residents apprised of the situation, as no reporters are present on the ground near the fighting and rumors are spreading.
On the other hand, the interim Libyan government headed by Abdullah al-Thani issued a statement announcing it had ordered the army to advance toward the capital Tripoli and liberate it from the armed groups known as Fajr Libya (Libya Dawn).
In the statement, the Thani-led government said that the army forces under the command of the General Staff would enter Tripoli to liberate government installations and buildings that had been seized by the unlawful armed groups. The interim government called on “the youths of the city of Tripoli” to assist the army to liberate themselves and their regions from the rogue faction, as the statement described it.
And in the city of Ubari (southern Libya), 7 people were killed and 23 were injured in renewed fighting between Toubou tribes and the Tuareg, ending a cease-fire from September. The director of medical affairs at the Murzuq Hospital (also southern Libya) Mohammed Ali said, late on Monday evening, that 7 casualties and 23 injuries from the Toubou tribe had arrived at the General Hospital, following armed clashes with the Tuareg. Mohammed Ali said there was a severe shortage in medical personnel in the hospital and that medicines had run out, pointing out that the majority of fractures were the result of bullets, while the majority of casualties had died on the way from Ubari to Murzuq due to the lack of paramedics at the scene.
News agencies reported that battles continued to rage in Ubari until late on Monday, amid the complete disruption in communications and power supply in large parts of the city. The news agencies also quoted witnesses as saying that Tuareg militants burned down a number of homes belonging to members of the Toubou tribe in Ubari.

Arabi also said … that if the fighting continues for another 48 hours, Ubari would become a disaster zone.

The director of the Libyan Red Crescent in Ubari, Amod al-Arabi, called on both sides to implement an immediate ceasefire and provide safe passage for any trapped civilians, calling on all government institutions and NGOs to provide medical relief and emergency food aid to the citizens there. Arabi also said that that the current situation in the city was catastrophic, saying that if the fighting continues for another 48 hours, Ubari would become a disaster zone.
In turn, commander of operations in the Third Force of the Libyan army, Mohammad al-Zarrat, claimed that militants from the Toubou tribe in Chad were brought in as mercenaries to the south, saying that this further destabilizes the situation in southern Libya.

Canada Raises ‘Terrorism’ Alert after Soldier Killed


Canada raised its national “terrorism” alert on Tuesday, officials said, after a soldier run over by a suspected jihadist died in hospital.

The alert level was raised from low to medium after authorities said a man they believed to be “radicalized” struck two officers with his car Monday, but authorities said the heightened alert was not “the result of a specific threat.”

“This level means that intelligence has indicated that an individual or group within Canada or abroad has the intent and capability to commit an act of terrorism,” Jean-Christophe de Le Rue, a spokesman for the Public Safety Ministry said.

The assailant in Monday’s attack was identified as 25-year-old Martin Couture-Rouleau, who was briefly detained at a Canadian airport last July when he sought to fly to Turkey, federal police said.

Police did not have enough evidence to charge him with seeking to join a terrorist group abroad and released him.

Couture-Rouleau was fatally shot by police after he struck two soldiers with his car in a Quebec parking lot — a scenario which had been depicted only last month in ISIL propaganda.

At a press conference, Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney said the deliberate attack was “clearly linked to terrorist ideology.”

“I am horrified by what took place here,” he said. “This is a terrible act of violence against our country, against our military, against our values.”

The attack took place as Canadian warplanes headed to bomb the so-called Islamic State militants in Iraq.

Defense Minister Rob Nicholson said the soldier’s death “in a senseless act such as this only strengthens our resolve” to take on militant groups.

Gaza’s injured try to resume their lives with prosthetics

Published Wednesday, October 22, 2014
Injured young man Ahmed Abdullah leans against the wall as he waits his turn in a long queue to see a doctor. All these patients need to find out if the stump where their arm or leg used to be can be fitted with a prosthetic. Waiting is unbearable and painful, especially since thousands more have joined the list of injured Gazans as a result of the last Israeli war on the Gaza Strip.
Gaza – Amputations are not the only phenomenon that stands out. Some patients are suffering from other ailments besides loss of limbs. Abdullah had his only hand on his forehead in an attempt to ameliorate his headache.
The Artificial Limb Center in the Gaza Strip is the only place of its kind providing services for amputees and it has over 48 individuals in urgent need of prosthetic replacement. The most complicated cases are people who lost both legs. Ahmed, from the Shujayeh neighborhood in east Gaza, who is standing with the other patients preferred to remain silent, not to maintain the quiet in the center but because his doctor told him that the shrapnel wounds in his head might interfere with his ability to express himself verbally.
Standing next to Ahmed were other patients waiting to be examined. Some of them had amputated feet from the second war in 2012 while others came complaining of pain after the prosthetic replacement.
Mohammed Radwan came for maintenance on his artificial limb. He was injured in the first war in the winter of 2008 while he was at work at a police station. He is now trying to get rid of one of the two canes he uses by walking on two legs, one of which is artificial. He is hopeful that his prosthetic replacement will succeed so he can resume his life after his injury has long prevented him from getting back to work.
The number of patients who have benefited from the service of prosthetic replacement which the center provides for free is about 300 people who have been injured as a result of the Israeli bombardments in the past five years. However, a number of people injured in the last war – Operation Protective Edge – have not been able to come to the center yet because they are still bed-ridden due to several injuries whose treatment takes precedence over prosthetic replacement. Others are trying to get better medical services in other countries even though they all face difficulties traveling or getting prosthetic supplies not allowed to get into Gaza.

”Despite all the difficulties we face in funding and getting the materials necessary to manufacture the artificial limbs, we will continue in our work.” – Nivine al-Ghusain, Artificial Limb Center

Inside the examination ward of the Artificial Limb Center, a number of specialists are busy dealing with the different cases based on their needs. They gather the patients inside the training and physical therapy hall where they are trained on the use of their prosthesis, whether it’s an arm or a leg. The cases vary in terms of their response to the prosthetic limb. Dr. Nabil al-Shawa says that most of the cases that do not respond well are patients with upper amputations (above the knee). Another factor is the age of the patient and their ability to endure the training.
Shawa points out that in some cases, you can not tell that these people have an artificial limb because of how well they respond and the vitality with which they deal with it. He said that most of the cases they received after the war were below the knee amputations. Nevertheless, the center faces the same problems that all Gazans face, such as deteriorating economic conditions. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) recently stopped supporting the center because of its financial woes. The Red Cross on the other hand has continued to provide it with raw materials needed to manufacture the limbs. The center, which was established in 1976, belongs to the Gaza municipality.
The technical coordinator at the center, Nivine al-Ghusain, said that “despite all the difficulties we face in funding and getting the materials necessary to manufacture the artificial limbs, we will continue in our work.” She told Al-Akhbar that the center takes upon itself the maintenance of the prosthesis from time to time “in addition to changing it based on the patients’ needs.”
Injured Gazans protest
A number of cancer patients and Gazans injured in the most recent Israeli war on the Gaza Strip asked the president of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, and the health minister in the unity government, Jawad Awwad, to dismiss the head of the External Medical Treatment Department, Amira al-Hindi, because of what they described as the “negligence” faced by patients who need medical referrals.
Sick and injured people accused Hindi during a sit-in in front of the office of the External Medical Treatment Department in the city of Gaza of exacerbating the suffering of Gazans and delaying their medical referrals for more than 20 days before they get signed.

بين مرج دابق وكوباني: أحلام الفتوحات التركية

إسراء الفاس


بين عامي 1324 و1826 م سجلت السلطنة العثمانية انتصارات حاسمة وسّعت من رقعة سلطتها في حروب خاضها الجيش العثماني، الذي كان قوامه وعماده الأساس فرقة الانكشارية، وفق ما يذكر المستشرق الألماني بروكلمان. ومن أهم المعارك العثمانية،التي سجّلها التاريخ، معركة مرج دابق*، الواقع شمال حلب(1516)، التي انتهت بهزيمة المماليك، فشرعت باب المنطقة العربية لحكم عثماني دام أكثر من 500 عام.

والانكشارية، أقوى فرق الجيش العثماني ووُصفت بأنها “أداة رهيبة” بيد الدولة، وكان اسمها يثير الخوف في القلوب، وغالباً ما حققت النصر بالرعب قبل أن تحققه بالمعارك. وكان عناصرها يتم اختيارهم من صغار السن ويربون تربية “دينية-عسكرية” في معسكرات خاصة بهم، تحدث قطيعة مع أصولهم وتجعل من القتال صنعتهم الوحيدة، وتنشئهم على مفهوم استرخاص الحياة والاستماتة بالقتل، وبحسب المؤرخ الانكليزي جرانت فقد اعتمد مصير ومستقبل الدولة العثمانية إلى حد كبير على هذه الفرقة، التي كانت تتقدم صفوف الجيش العثماني في كل معركة. 

وعلى صورة الانكشارية في العهد العثماني يأتي تنظيم داعش اليوم، فيصف الخبير في الشأن التركي د. محمد نورالدين  عناصر التنظيم بـ”الانكشاريين الجدد”. ويؤكد، في مقابلة له مع قناة المنار، أن تركيا  تعد “الراعي الأكبر” لتنظيم داعش، وترى فيه “أداتها الوحيدة في هذه المرحلة، للتأثير في تطورات المنطقة سواء في سورية او العراق”. ويرى أن مردّ رفض تركيا المشاركة مع التحالف الدولي، رغم الضغوط الأميركية، يعود لكونها ترى في ذلك “قضاء على الأداة الوحيدة التي تمارس عبرها النفوذ في المنطقة”.


تركيا: لا مشكلة لنا مع داعش

في اتصال مع موقع قناة المنار، يعلق الباحث التركي المقرب من حزب “العدالة والتنمية” زاهد غول على طلب انضمام تركيا للتحالف، بعد أحداث عين العرب، فيكشف أنّ الولايات المتحدة الأميركية “قدمت لتركيا أموالاً لمقاتلة داعش في كوباني وغيرها”، ويردف: “لكن نائب رئيس الوزراء التركي قال بصراحة إن تركيا ليس لديها جنود مرتزقة، تركيا لن تقاتل نيابة عن أحد، ومن لديه مشكلة مع داعش فليقاتل بنفسه”. 

“تركيا لن تتدخل بمفردها، ستتدخل مع تدخل قوى دولية” يقول غول. ويصف “مشكلة داعش” بالمؤقتة وغير الحقيقية، وبأنها “مجرد ردة فعل على النظام السوري” حسب قوله. ويرى الباحث المقرب من الحزب الحاكم في تركيا أن بلاده ترى بأن وجود الجيش السوري على حدودها أسوأ من وجود داعش هناك.

ويكرر المسؤولون الأتراك – وأبرزهم رئيس الحكومة التركية أحمد داوود أوغلو- أنه ليس لتركيا مشكلة مع داعش، ولذلك تعمد تركيا إلى المساومة على تنفيذ ما يطلبه الأميركيون لناحية انضمامها للتحالف، فيما تدور معارك كوباني أمام أعين الآليات العسكرية التركية المصطفة على الحدود لمشاهدة الدخان المتصاعد من المدينة السورية.

وقد لا يصح القول ان تركيا تنأى بنفسها عن معركة كوباني، اذا أنها لم تلتزم الحياد بقدر ما كانت طرفاً. فيقول د.محمد نورالدين في احدى مقالاته: “دفعت تركيا ثمن تواطئها في عين العرب (كوباني) حتى قبل أن تسقط”. وتناولت وكالات الأنباء العالمية تقريرا عن منع الأتراك لأكراد الخروج من الأراضي التركية   لمقاتلة داعش، وفق ما ينقل تقرير لـ“فرانس برس”. والنتيجة يعززها ما عرضته قناة “سكاي نيوز” عن جوازات سفر مقاتلين لـ”داعش” في كوباني تحمل أختام مغادرة من الحدود التركية باتجاه سورية، بحسب ما عرضت قناة “سكاي نيوز”.

إرتدادت معركة كوباني على الداخل التركي

غازي عنتاب

ويؤكد د. محمد نورالدين، في مقابلة مع قناة المنار، إن ” الحجر الذي رمته تركيا في وجه خصوصمها وهو “كوباني” بدأ بالارتداد عليها”، ويكتب في مقال له عن الارتدادات، وعن تحول المدن التركية لاسيّما غازي عنتاب إلى ساحات حرب، لا يُسمع فيها صوت الرصاص فقط بل ترتفع فيها السيوف، كإشارات تأييد لداعش، ومدن اخرى تغرق بالدم بعد أن شهدت تظاهرات مطالبة بدعم كوباني.

من جهته، يوضح مراسل قناة المنار في تركيا حسن الطهراوي أن غالبية من قضوا في التظاهرات التي نظمها أكراد تضامناً مع كوباني، لم يقتلوا برصاص قوات الأمن التركية بل برصاص متطرفين خرجوا مع من رفع الشعارات القومية واستخدموا رصاصهم، مشيراً إلى أن ذلك ما جرى في منطقتي ديار بكر وغازي عنتاب، التي تأوي عدداً كبيراً من النازحين السوريين إضافة إلى قيادات لداعش والنصرة وغيرها من فصائل المعارضة السورية المسلحة.

وكما نورالدين، يؤكد الطهراوي أن الأزمة انتقلت إلى تركيا، رغم محاولات الحكومة لململة الوضع، مشيراً إلى تصريحات لمسؤولين اكراد قالوا فيها: “سقوط كوباني يعني سقوط أنقرة”.


كوباني بوابة عبور إلى المنطقة

ولكن ماذا تريد تركيا من معركة كوباني؟ وأي نتائج تجعل من أنقرة مستعدة لدفع ضرائب قد تطال استقرارها الداخلي؟

يُقال إن إن قراءة التاريخ مفتاح لفهم الحاضر واستشراف المستقبل، وقد وقف الرئيس التركي رجب طيب أردوغان يوماً ليقول: نحن أحفاد السلاجقة وبقية الدولة العليّة…”حزب العدالة والتنمية هو حزب يحمل في جذوره العميقة روح السلاجقة والعثمانيين”، وفق ما نقل تقرير سابق لموقع قناة المنار. فهل تتكرر معادلة “مرج دابق” يوم حكم الأتراك المنطقة 500 عام، بعد المعركة التي خاضوها في الشمال السوري. هل يتأمل الأتراك حصاداً من كوباني يوازي ما ناله أجدادهم من مرج دابق؟  

رجب طيب أردوغان

تُقابل تركيا الضغوط الأميركية لحثّها على الانضمام إلى التحالف الدولي بشروط متوازية مع مطلب انقرة تدريب وتسليح المعارضة السورية ، والشروط  تتمثل بـ:

1.    فرض منطقة عازلة وحظر جوي، يؤمنان منطقة آمنة للمقاتلين في صفوف المعارضة السورية وقاعدة ينطلقون منها لتنفيذ عملياتهم في الأراضي السوري، وأيضاً منطقة تأوي النازحين الذين باتت تتذمر تركيا من وجودهم على أراضيها.

2.    ضمان عدم تسليح الأكراد وإلغاء أي كيانية مستقلة لهم في سورية، لأن من شأن ذلك أن يعزز وضع حزب العمال الكردستاني أو الأحزاب الكردية الأخرى في تركيا.

3.    اشتمال ضربات التحالف الجوية أهداف سورية رسمية بهدف “اسقاط النظام السوري”، الذي ترى تركيا أن مشكلتها معه لا مع داعش.

إذاَ تعتقد تركيا أن الفرصة تاريخية وسانحة لاعادة “فتوحاتها” في المنطقة. ولعلها ترى أن سقوط سورية سيفتح بوابة المنطقة أمام نفوذ تركي بلا منازع، يكون عماده نظام حكم في سورية موالٍ لتركيا، لينعكس بالتالي على الأردن، وفلسطين، والكويت، وقطر، وتونس، وليبيا، وربما مصر لاحقاً… انهيار أنظمة على غرار تهاوي أحجار “الدومينو” لصالح أنظمة تلتقي في عمقها مع فكر الحزب الحاكم في تركيا. وفيما لو تحققت هذه التطلعات فإن من شأنها رسم علامات استفهام حول شكل المنطقة وتركيبتها مستقبلاً، وبعبارة أدق فهي تضع مصير المملكة العربية السعودية والإمارات والبحرين بصورتها الحالية على المحك، ليُعاد رسم خارطة شبه الجزيرة العربية… فهل ستحقق داعش لتركيا، ما حققته الانكشارية للعثمانيين؟

ما يُقارب 502 سنة اعتمد فيها جيش السلطنة العثمانية على رّعب الفرقة الانكشارية فحقق الانتصارات… كبر الرعب ونغص حياة السلطنة نفسها، لم تعد الحروب فقط صنعة عناصر الانكشارية، بل تدخلوا بأمور السلطنة عزلوا حكاماً وقتلوا آخرين، حتى تم القضاء عليهم بمذبحة ارتكبها الجيش العثماني في العام 1826. اليوم يعتمد الأتراك على توحش داعش كأداة نفوذ في المنطقة، ومع أن أياً من الانتصارات لم تحصدها تركيا بعد إلا أن ارتدادات توحش التنظيم عليها أخذت تتبدى..

في سلسلة الوثائقيات القصيرة  من إعداد “Vice News”  يُسأل أحد عناصر تنظيم داعش عن قضية قطع الحكومة التركية للمياه عن سورية والعراق فيجيب: “نتمنى من الله سبحانه وتعالى أن تعيد هذه الحكومة المرتدة حساباتها، لأنها اذا لم تعدها في الوقت الحالي، سوف نعيدها بإذان الله، بفتح اسطنبول”. ويتابع: “نعم هذا تهديد صريح ووعيد، وان شاء الله إن لم يعيدوا المياه سنعيدها نحن، سنفتحها من اسطنبول”.
