Date posted: September 24, 2015
International charity organization Kimse Yok Mu distributed sacrificed meat to a total of 1,000 families during the Eid al-Adha in Ankara on Thursday.
Families received meat in boxes which were paid for the donations from benevolent Turkish people at one of the offices of the KYM in Mamak district. The one who could not go to the office, received their meat in their homes by the KYM volunteers.
Speaking to Cihan nes agency, Mülazim Ünal, a KYM official, said they help thousands of people bot in Turkey and abroad during the Eid al-Adha as in the previous years. Ünal also stated that they presented rams to the families of the soldiers, who were killed in the recent terror attacks, to sacrifice them in the feast.

[Erdogan] has called Hizmet a state within a state, which to me is a strange characterization. To me, that’s like saying that the Catholics are a state within a state in America, or the Jews, a state within a state in America. Those kinds of statements are derogatory, they’re pejoratives. Catholics have a right to seek influence in America; Jews have a right to seek influence in America, that’s how we operate here.

But in Turkey being a journalist from Zaman media group was enough for me to be considered an “enemy of the state.” And I was the editor-in-chief of Today’s Zaman which had been brutally taken over a few days earlier, earning me a suspended jail sentence for my tweets criticizing then-Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu.
Please do not insult the intelligence of the people
The government’s defensive position could have been understandable had it not removed the police chiefs who did the investigation from their positions, almost as a punishment.
An instructive crisis
The links revealed between the National Intelligence Organization (MİT) and the Kurdish Communities Union (KCK), which have been maintained by MİT to embrace Kurdish politics and blur the line between legal and illegal activities, were not surprising to anybody because, in terms of its personnel, MİT is still a military organization.

Gülen-linked journalist association warns that movement’s support for gov’t can end
Erdoğan and his supporters have cast the corruption probe as a smear campaign devised by Gülen, who exercises broad, if covert, influence in the media and judiciary through his followers.
