Iraq crisis: Emboldened Kurd secession bid faces major hurdles

One of the biggest obstacles to Kurdish secession is money, with oil revenues from areas they control insufficient to pay for the region's numerous civil servants, and future revenues in doubt because of objections from Baghdad, which considers independent Kurdish energy exports to be illegal. #ConnectTheDots #Iran #Turkey #Iraq #Recep Tayyip Erdogan #Kurds #islamic-state #Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant #ISIL #Kurdish autonomous region #Kurdish secession #Massud Barzani #Anathema

HAIFA Israel (Reuters) - The hydraulic ramp of a Turkish freighter taps down on the eastern Mediterranean port of Haifa and, under a full moon, 37 trucks roll off onto an otherwise empty pier. In a convoy that stretches hundreds of meters, the trucks travel east across northern Israel, bringing goods from Europe to customers in Jordan and beyond. #facebook #Brazil #Technology #Arabic #Middle East #Israel #Argentina #Turkey #Latin America #opinion

Turkey's Erdogan positions himself for more powerful presidential role

ANKARA (Reuters) - Tayyip Erdogan declared his candidacy on Tuesday for a more powerful presidency which rivals fear may entrench authoritarian rule and supporters, especially conservative Muslims, see as the crowning prize in his drive to reshape NATO member Turkey. Supporters of his ruling Islamist-rooted AK Party cheered, clapped and sang pro-Erdogan songs after deputy chairman Mehmet Ali Sahin announced the prime minister's widely expected candidacy in the August presidential election. "We entered politics for Allah, we entered politics for the people," Erdogan told a crowd of thousands in an auditorium in the capital Ankara, where the party faithful erupted into chants of "Turkey is proud of you". #United States #India #Business #Technology #Italy #Argentina #Turkey #Latin America #Entertainment
