Press TV reporter in Turkey killed in suspicious car accident

Press TV’s correspondent in Turkey, Serena Shim, has been killed in a suspicious car accident near the Turkey-Syria border.

Shim was killed on Sunday as she was on a working mission in Turkey to cover the ongoing war in the strategic Syrian town of Kobani.

She was going back to her hotel from a report scene in the city of Suruç in Turkey’s Urfa Province when their car collided with a heavy vehicle. The identity and whereabouts of the truck driver remain unknown.

Shim, an American citizen of Lebanese origin, covered reports for Press TV in Lebanon, Iraq, and Ukraine.

On Friday, she told Press TV that the Turkish intelligence agency had accused her of spying probably due to some of the stories she has covered about Turkey’s stance on the ISIL terrorists in Kobani and its surroundings, adding that she feared being arrested.

Shim said she was among the few journalists obtaining stories of militants infiltrating into Syria through the Turkish border, adding that she had received images from militants crossing the Turkish border into Syria in World Food Organization and other NGOs’ trucks.

Shim flatly rejected accusations against her, saying she was “surprised” at this accusation “because I have nothing to hide and I have never done anything aside my job.”

Kobani and its surroundings have been under attack since mid-September, with the ISIL militants capturing dozens of nearby Kurdish villages.

Turkey has been accused of backing ISIL militants in Syria.

Iran’s PressTV reports on the SCOTUS decision, manages to talk about Jews in five out of eighteen paragraphs.

Commenting to Press TV on Friday, Mark Dankof, a political commentator and Lutheran pastor in San Antonio, Texas, said the controversial Supreme Court ruling made him very angry.

“Not only the content of this decision, but the way the Supreme Court invented a constitutional right that does not exist, and overthrew the doctrine of the original intent of the Founders, existing state laws, natural law, and British Common Law as the original basis of American jurisprudence (British Common Law was based on Christianity),” he said.

“This was the case in the Roe v Wade decision in 1973 also. And it should not be ignored that the victories for abortion on demand and LGBT rights are reflective of the disproportionate influence of Jewish power, money, and activism in the United States, freely acknowledged by Vice President Joe Biden in Haaretz recently,” Dankof stated.

“The key Jewish role played in the mainstreaming of abortion, LGBT, and pornography in the United States may be documented in Google search, especially in looking at the Frankfurt School and its Institute for Social Research,” he added.

“The provable Jewish role in destroying the older Christian cultures of the United States and Europe is now a dagger pointed at the Islamic World and the revival of Eastern Orthodox culture in Russia,” the analyst noted.

“I believe Russian President Putin understands this, and will resist the cultural, economic, and military coercion of the Anglo-American-Zionist Empire with all of his country’s national resources and will,” he observed.

“I believe Mr. Putin is a key ingredient in destroying this global threat, and restoring cultural integrity and national sovereignty to his country, and providing a model for defeating the Zionist agenda globally,” he concluded.


UN Report: Foreign investment in Israel dropped almost 50% in 2014 | PressTV

Stephen Harper has decided to prostitute Canada’s military for Obama’s fraudulent campaign against the ISIL in Iraq and Syria. The ISIL — much like its Orwellian predecessor al-Qaeda — is the CIA’s Frankenstein monster, armed, trained, funded and deployed by Western and Israeli secret services. The ISIL is the West, and the West is the ISIL. So whatever terrorism is blamed on the ISIL, our governments ultimately stand behind it.

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei addresses the youth in Europe and North America.

I just wanted to highlight part of the letter. I copied three paragraphs from two sections. I encourage you to read it in its entirety.

“I don’t insist that you accept my reading or any other reading of Islam. What I want to say is: Don’t allow this dynamic and effective reality in today’s world to be introduced to you through resentments and prejudices. Don’t allow them to hypocritically introduce their own recruited terrorists as representatives of Islam.

“Receive knowledge of Islam from its primary and original sources. Gain information about Islam through the Qur’an and the life of its great Prophet. I would like to ask you whether you have directly read the Qur’an of the Muslims. Have you studied the teachings of the Prophet of Islam and his humane, ethical doctrines? Have you ever received the message of Islam from any sources other than the media?

“ Therefore, don’t miss the opportunity to gain proper, correct and unbiased understanding of Islam so that hopefully, due to your sense of responsibility toward the truth, future generations would write the history of this current interaction between Islam and the West with a clearer conscience and lesser resentment.”

Iran marks 27th anniv. of US downing of Iranian passenger plane

On July 3, 1988, US warship Vincennes shot down an Iranian airliner over the Persian Gulf, killing all 290 people on board, including 66 children. Iran is marking the 27th anniversary of the tragic incident.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry has issued a statement on the occasion. While offering condolences to the families of the victims, the statement condemned the attack on the Iranian airbus as a gross violation of the international law by the US. The Foreign Ministry also described the incident as an example of state-terrorism supported by the US government. The statement noted that the US attack on the passenger plane will never be erased from the memory of the Iranian nation, and that it further shows the false nature of Washington’s claims about human rights.

In spite of Israel’s illegal occupation and encroachment of Palestinian lands, Obama insists, “To move forward, both parties must face hard choices and make difficult decisions.” We cannot help but wonder what hard choices POTUS has in mind, and what difficult decisions lie ahead for the oppressed people of Palestine.
