The truth about my life

Wed, 21 Jan 2009

I know I've been lagging behind my blog recently, with little excuse -- sorry for that.

I find myself using FriendFeed and (much less, but still) Twitter probably because particularly friendfeed makes it incredibly easy for me to follow almost everything happening around the world. I'm ealtin on both, as you could have guessed. You can follow me if you care.

I've got a long list of things to blog, including what I've been doing behind that bling! startup called Construia. Please hang on, coming soon. Real soon.

I really don't want to have a "wartime" category, so although it just doesn't fits into any humane category, I'm posting this under politics.

Israel really screwed up big time. They used unnamed war technology in Gaza. 5 losses on Israeli Defence Forces so far, but death toll from Gaza are far far more, hundreds if not thousands. Israel doesn't let foreign journalists into the Gaza Strip, there's limited intelligence.

What's worse, as visible on Al Jazeera is how US media intentionally hides details, like death tolls of the Palestinians or the huge imbalance between, which is another obvious sign of civilians under attack. Please, go read the in-depth analysis of US media skewing the issue, on Al Jazeera site.

Protests of Israel's actions were organized yesterday in almost every single city in Turkey, yet almost no coverage about protests on mainstream Turkish media. It seems like only Vakit has some articles about the protests. I honestly don't like quoting them in my blog because of the unfair, skewed and often anti-secular view of their articles about internal affairs; but I'd like to praise their work which is fuelled by the religious reasons.

Turkey as one of the temporary members of the UN Security Council is obliged to do something about the issue. Whatever that something will be, I'm sure it's going to cause a permanent shift in foreign affairs with Israel.

About me

I'm Enver ALTIN. I'm from the other side of the river.
