Saudi preacher who 'raped and tortured' his five -year-old daughter to death is released after paying 'blood money' | Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth. | Scoop.it
The money is considered compensation under Islamic law, although it is only half the amount that would have been paid had Lama been a boy.

Despite Saudi Arabia’s famously strict legal system, Women to Drive say fathers cannot be executed for murdering their children in the country. Equally, husbands cannot be executed for murdering their wives.

Formal objections to the ruling have been raised by three Saudi activists, and the twitter hashtag #AnaLama (which translates as I Am Lama) has been set up.

Women not equal to men, says Erdogan

Women not equal to men, says Erdogan | Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth. | Scoop.it

"You cannot put women and men on an equal footing," he told a meeting in Istanbul. "It is against nature."

He also said feminists did not grasp the importance of motherhood in Islam.

His comments often seek to appeal to his pious core supporters, says the BBC's Mark Lowen in Istanbul, but they anger more liberal voters.

Turks who have more secular views argue that the government's social policies are taking the country in a dangerous direction, our correspondent says.

Mr Erdogan has previously urged women to have three children, and has lashed out against abortion and birth by Caesarean section.

Greece says No to EU statement on Russia

Greece says No to EU statement on Russia | Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth. | Scoop.it

The new far-left government in Greece dropped a bombshell on its first day in office by abjuring an EU statement on Russia.

It said in a press communique on Tuesday (27 January): “the aforementioned statement was released without the prescribed procedure to obtain consent by the member states and particularly without ensuring the consent of Greece”.

“In this context, it is underlined that Greece does not consent to this statement”.

It added that its new PM, Alexis Tsipras, expressed “discontent” in a phone call to EU foreign relations chief Federica Mogherini.

The EU statement on Russia, published on Tuesday morning, claimed all 28 leaders had agreed Russia bears “responsibility” for a rocket attack on the Ukrainian city of Mariupol, which killed 30 people.

It also called on foreign ministers to “consider any appropriate action” - further sanctions on Russia.

It was drafted by the cabinet of EU Council chief Donald Tusk, a Russia-critical Pole, on Monday evening.

His people say he phoned Tsipras and that they contacted all the capitals' “sherpas” - senior officials dealing with EU issues in each leader's private office.

They also say no one on the Greek side voiced objections until Monday morning.

They then suggested adding a footnote to the statement, but “as Greece did not want such a footnote, it was clear to us that we could publish the statement as agreed in the evening”.

For its part, the Greek embassy to the EU is playing down the fiasco as confusion linked to the hand-over of power in Athens.

But one EU diplomat told this website Greece had tried to remove the line blaming Russia for the Mariupol killing.

He said Austria, Hungary, and Slovakia also tried, and failed, to “water down” the communique.

Meanwhile, an EU Council official said the situation - a retroactive abjuration of an EU line - has “never happened before”.

“I guess this means it’s now a statement of 27 EU heads of state or government instead of 28 and we will have to add the footnote”, he said.

“But it’s not a legally binding document anyway, so it doesn’t become invalid in that sense”.

Syriza’s Challenge » CounterPunch: Tells the Facts, Names the Names

Syriza’s Challenge » CounterPunch: Tells the Facts, Names the Names | Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth. | Scoop.it
Across Europe, and more specifically, the euro-zone, a spectre did not so much haunt as totally materialise in the form of Alex Tsipras and the Syriza party. Greece woke up to a new party that had never seen office, coming within a few seats of governing in its own right. Any European party would have salivated at such an outcome – coalitions tend to be a matter of course, and majorities normally associated with authoritarian types. In the Greek case, the order established during the post-junta period had been overturned – at least on electoral paper.

Ukraine Goes Full Orwell, Unleashes "Ministry Of Truth" | Zero Hedge | Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth. | Scoop.it
Officially called "The Ministry of Information Policy," Mashable reports the Ukraine government has established a department that critics are calling the 'Ministry of Truth' in a dystopian reference to George Orwell's 1984 (apparent instruction manual). Run by a close ally of President Poroshenko's close ally, while its main objective appears to be confronting Russia’s formidable propaganda machine, the Ministry is likely to also restrict free speech and inhibit journalists' work - particularly in war-torn eastern Ukraine, according to observers.

Will Washington entrust the Arab world to Riyadh and Tehran?, by Thierry Meyssan

Will Washington entrust the Arab world to Riyadh and Tehran?, by Thierry Meyssan | Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth. | Scoop.it
In the context of the extended 5+1 talks, Thierry Meyssan shares his thoughts about the issues at stake: behind the false accusation of developing a nuclear bomb, Washington had hoped to curb the influence of the Iranian revolution. However, in light of its military defeats since 2006, it would now be amenable to maintaining the status quo in the balance of power. Its aim is to split the Arab world between pro-Saudi and pro-Iranians based on the assurance that neither would encroach into the other’s sphere of influence. Despite appearances, the failure of the 5+1 talks in Vienna does not imply that the separate negotiations between Washington and Tehran met a similar fate, as suggested by John Kerry. However, it is not in the interest of either party to divulge what they have agreed to. Hence, one should keep an eye on the conflicts in the region to decipher the tenor of their agreement.
