UAE to Establish Rehabilitation Centers for Terror Convicts

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) will establish centers to help “rehabilitate” persons “lured” towards international terrorist organizations, Al Khaleej Times reported.

Mandated by Article 68 of the recently enacted anti-terror law, these centers will employ social workers, preachers and psychiatrists to help counsel and rehabilitate those “misled” into joining international terrorist groups.

“Convicts of terror cases will be sent to these centers after or while serving their jail sentences,” Sultan Juma al-Shamsi, Rapporteur of the Legislative and Legal Committee at the Federal National Council, told Al Khaleej Times.

“Precautionary measures” will be taken against those in the centers who will have been admitted based on “final judicial judgments,” he said.

The rehabilitation centers, which will be set up depending on the need of each of the UAE’s seven emirates, aim to protect “homeland’s citizens, restore them and help them get rid of any poisonous views and malicious thoughts,” al-Sham…

"Russian Invasion" Of Ukraine, Turns Out to Have Been a Translation Error

After all major news-entities repeated the "invasion" claim and the public damage is done they simply take it back.

By Moon Of Alabama

The authors of this NYT piece, Ukraine Reports Russian Invasion on a New Front, are not really convincing when presenting these reports by the Ukrainian government as truthful:

The latest incursion, which Ukraine’s military said included five armored personnel carriers, was at least the third movement of troops and weapons from Russia across the southeast part of the border this week, further blunting the momentum Ukrainian forces have made in weakening the insurgents in their redoubts of Donetsk and Luhansk farther north. Evidence of a possible turn was seen in the panicky retreat of Ukrainian soldiers on Tuesday from a force they said had come over the Russian border.
Andriy Lysenko, a spokesman for the Ukrainian military in Kiev, said the Russian armored column entered the town of Amvrosiyivka, south of Donetsk, expanding what Western and …

It makes no sense to comment in detail on the satellite imagery released by NATO as “proof” of Russia’s military involvement in Ukraine, Defense Ministry’s spokesman said, pointing out that even high NATO officials were hesitant to put their names on it.

Referring to NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Supreme Allied Commander Europe Philip Breedlove, and NATO Spokesperson Oana Lungescu, Russia’s Defense Ministry spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov ridiculed the so-called NATO proof.

“You know, it has become ridiculous… If earlier, someone would at least put their names on those images, be it Breedlove, Rasmussen, or even Lungescu, now, they are hesitant,”Konashenkov said as cited by RIA Novosti. “It makes no sense to seriously comment on this.”

The General also criticized western media outlets for accepting such images and anti-Russian stance at face value.

“The phrase ‘NATO published satellite shots of Russian troops' presence in Ukraine’ h…

President Putin has called on the self-defense militias in Ukraine to provide Kiev's military units blocked in the east of the country with a safe humanitarian corridor to cross into Russia.

“It is clear the militia has achieved a major success in intercepting Kiev’s military operation, which represents a grave danger to the population of Donbass and which has already led to the loss of many lives among peaceful residents,” the Russian leader said in a statement.

As a result of militias’ counter-offense, large numbers of Ukrainian troops – many of whom were taking part in Kiev’s so-called anti-terrorist operation “against their will”and “just following orders” – have been surrounded, the President added.

“I call on the militia groups to open a humanitarian corridor for Ukrainian service members who have been surrounded, so as to avoid any needless loss of life, giving them the opportunity to leave the combat area …
