Good fundamentals make ruble ‘stable’ currency - Russian Central Bank

Good fundamentals make ruble ‘stable’ currency - Russian Central Bank | Global politics | Scoop.it
Russia’s currency has taken a significant 20 percent plunge this year against the dollar and euro, but analysts are confident that Russia’s sturdy stash of foreign reserves and miniscule external debt make the ruble one of the ‘most stable’ currencies.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Russia’s vast gold and foreign currency reserves will help weather the ruble’s rough patch. At more than $450 billion, they are the third largest reserves in the world.

The Opera Bastille in Paris, which caused an uproar by ejecting a woman wearing a full face Islamic niqab, issued rules after the fact saying anyone whose face was covered with a “veil” “mask” or “hood” would be shown the door.

In the Syria We Don’t Know by Charles Glass

In the Syria We Don’t Know by Charles Glass | Global politics | Scoop.it
The Damascus cafés where I met young anti-Assad activists early in the uprising are now mostly empty, and their original enthusiasm has dissipated. Some organizers are in prison, others have gone into exile, and the rest have given up, as disillusioned with the rebellion as many Alawites are with the regime.

​Turks, Kurds, Americans: the Kobani riddle

​Turks, Kurds, Americans: the Kobani riddle | Global politics | Scoop.it
Pay close attention to the women of Kobani, where Syrian Kurds are desperately fighting ISIS/ISIL/Daesh. They are also fighting the treacherous agendas of the US, Turkey, and the government of Iraqi Kurdistan. Who will prevail?
Enrique Ferro's insight:

In the young 21st century, it’s the female barricades of Kobani that are at the forefront of fighting fascism.

Inevitably there should be quite a few points of intersection between the International Brigades fighting fascism in Spain in 1936 and what is happening in Rojava, as stressed by one of the very few articles about it published in the mainstream Western media.

If these components were not enough to drive crazy deeply intolerant Wahhabis (and their powerful Gulf petrodollar backers) then there’s the overall political set up.
