The world according Soner Çağaptay

Some of you may understand by now that I cannot keep my mouth shut, especially when people are Talking Nonsense and get away with their deliberations. One of them is Herr Soner Çağaptay; a guy who is able to rationalize his hallucinations and wet dreams to become the first President of the incorporated Turco-Europe, with the accent on’Turkco’.
For you to find the (at least) 10 historical mistakes of the evangelical thoughts of this twisted Kemalist mind in his last epistel. Hallelujah.
My nephew of 17 came to 11 faults.
Go ahead Der Schöne Lieden!

The results of the 53rd annual World Press Photo Contest were announced on Friday during a press conference at Amsterdam City Hall.

The international jury has selected a photo by the Italian photographer Pietro Masturzo as the World Press Photo of the Year 2009. The picture depicts women shouting in protest from a rooftop in Tehran on 24 June.
The winning photograph is part of a story depicting the nights following the contested presidential elections in Iran, when people shouted their dissent from roofs and balconies, after daytime protests in the streets. The story as a whole was awarded first prize in the category People in the News.
The first exhibition with the award-winning images will be open to the public at the Oude Kerk, Oudekerksplein in Amsterdam on Friday, 23 April 2010. This exhibition will be on show until 20 June 2010 and will subsequently travel to some 100 cities in 45 different countries around the world, including Istanbul.

The Binnenhof (Dutch, literally "inner court"), is a complex of buildings in The Hague. It has been the location of meetings of the Staten-Generaal, the Dutch parliament, since 1446, and has been the centre of Dutch politics for many centuries.
The grounds on which the Binnenhof now stands were purchased by Count Floris IV of Holland in 1229, where he built his mansion, next to the little lake that has been called Hofvijver or 'Court Pond' since the 13th century. More buildings were constructed around the court, several of which are well known in their own right, such as the Ridderzaal (Great hall; literally Knight's Hall), where the queen holds her annual speech at Prinsjesdag.
The Hague is also the de facto judicial capital of the United Nations, being the location of its primary judicial institutions
