Georgia: Biologists Investigate Cause Of Thousands Of Dead Fish On Carter’s Lake

06/26/2012 Leave a comment

By Kimberly Barbour, WRCB – “CHATSWORTH, MURRAY COUNTY, GA (WRCB) – The Georgia Department of Natural Resources is investigating why several thousand fish have died in one Murray County lake.

Georgia DNR biologists say they’ve been getting complaints since Saturday from boaters, fishers and swimmers on Carter’s Lake.

It doesn’t take long to spot fish belly up on Carter’s lake. Silver sprinkles cover the blue water from end to end.

‘Dead fish just floating, I just wondered what was causing it,’ boater Jana Manous said.

‘I noticed that a lot of shad were dead,’ fisherman Carl Melear added.

It’s the first time frequent Carter’s Lake fisherman Carl Melear says he’s ever seen this many dead fish.

‘I don’t know what might be causing a kill like that,’ Melear said.

With lingering questions, intense heat and several hours with no catch, he decided to pack up early.

A few days into their investigation, DNR officials say they’re leaning toward it being natural causes instead of toxins in the water. That’s because all the dead fish seem to be the same species.

‘If it was a toxin in the water or low oxygen in the water, it would be killing all different types of species,’ said Jim Hakala, Georgia Dept. Of Natural Resources Fisheries Biologist.

State biologists came out to the lake this weekend to look into the reports and after seeing it for themselves, say nearly all of the dead fish are eight to ten inch gizzard shad.” Read more.

Rules Of Engagement ‘Have Changed’: Furious Turkey Mobilizes Tanks, Troops To Syrian Border

06/26/2012 1 comment

By ILAN BEN ZION and HILLARY ZAKEN and AP – “The Turkish military mobilized large numbers of reinforcements from its eastern provinces to the Syrian border on Tuesday, amid rising tension with Damascus, after the downing by Syria of a Turkish Air Force jet on Friday, Turkish media reported.

Large numbers of Turkish troops — including at least 15 long-range artillery pieces and tanks – moved to the Syrian frontier from the eastern city of Diyarbakir. A video published by the Turkish Cihan News Agency showed Turkish tanks being transported by carrier trucks toward the frontier.

The mobilization followed statements by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan that the Turkish military will respond to any future violation of its border by Syrian military elements.

‘As awe-inspiring as Turkey’s friendship is, Turkey’s wrath is equally awe-inspiring,’ Erdogan told the Turkish parliament on Tuesday.

‘The rules of engagement of the Turkish Armed Forces have changed,’ Erdogan said. ‘Any military element that approaches the Turkish border from Syria posing a security risk and danger will be regarded as a threat and treated as a military target.’

Erdogan closed his remarks with an especially harsh condemnation of Syrian President Bashar Assad: ‘Turkey and the Turkish people will continue to provide all support until the people of Syria have been saved from this tyrannical, murderous, bloody dictator and his gang.'” Read more.

Assad Declares Syria At War As Battle Now Reaches Damascus – “Syrian President Bashar al-Assad declared on Tuesday that his country was at war and ordered his new government to spare no effort to achieve victory, as the worst fighting of the 16-month conflict reached the outskirts of the capital… The declaration that Syria is at war marks a change of rhetoric from Assad, who had long dismissed the uprising against him as the work of scattered militants funded from abroad. ‘We live in a real state of war from all angles,’ Assad told a cabinet he appointed on Tuesday in a speech broadcast on state television.” Read more.

Modern Day Exodus: Palestinian Christians Leaving In Droves

Hebrews 13:3, “Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.”

By Eugenia Ugrinovich, Israel Today Magazine – “Home to one of the oldest Christian communities in the world, the city of Beit Jala — located on a hill adjacent to Bethlehem — still boasts a large number of worshippers. This fact makes the town unique among Palestinian towns, which have generally seen their Christian populations decline.

‘People are leaving Palestine [sic] in droves. Jenin, Aboud, Nablus — these cities have lost much of their Christian population, some villages and towns have no more than two to three families,’ said Peter, a 25-year-old resident of Bethlehem who agreed to be interviewed for this article on condition that his real name not be used.

Statistics show that more than 60 percent of the Arab Christians born in Palestinian areas over the past several generations now live abroad. Totaling some half a million people worldwide, 360,000 of them currently reside in dispersed communities in Canada, Chile, the United States, Germany, Australia and other countries. 154,000 remain in Israel and the Palestinian-controlled territories, with about 35,000 living in the West Bank and less than 3,000 in the Gaza Strip.

The flight of Christian is a growing trend across the Middle East. In Iraq, for example, the ancient Assyrian Christian community dropped from 1.5 million people to just 250,000 since the Second Gulf War broke out in 2003. Christians are leaving Lebanon en mass, with 60 percent of their beleaguered community now living in foreign lands. The Coptic Church in Egypt has lost tens of thousands of parishioners following the dramatic events of the ‘Arab Spring.'” Read more.

Flashback: ‘Mass Exodus’: Christians in Iran, Syria Face Rising Persecution from Islamic Fundamentalism – “In an e-mail to The Jerusalem Post on Sunday, Giulio Meotti, an Italian journalist with Il Foglio and author of the book A New Shoah, wrote ‘After the ethnic cleansing of Jews in 1948 from the Arab countries, Islamic fundamentalism is now trying to push away the Christians from the region. They want to establish a pure Islamic environment and the mass exodus already began under our noses.’ Meanwhile, the Pakistan Christian Post wrote last week on its website, ‘The Christian community in Syria has been hit by a series of kidnappings and brutal murders’ …” Read more.

Flashback: ‘The Most Important International Story Not Being Told by the Mainstream Media’: Christian Persecution in the Middle East – “U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom chairman Leonard Leo declared that Arab Christians face increasing persecution. ‘Christianity in Iraq could be eradicated in our lifetime, partially as a result of the U.S. troop withdrawal,’ Leo wrote. After Hosni Mubarak’s regime collapsed, 100,000 Christians fled Egypt in what the Egyptian Union of Human Rights called a ‘mass exodus.’ In the Gaza Strip, which is controlled by the radical Islamic terror group Hamas, 3,000 Christians face persecution… Should the exodus of Christians from Bethlehem continue in the next two or three decades, there may be no clergy left to conduct religious services in Jesus’ birthplace.” Read more.

BBC Admission: Our Coverage Of The Arab Spring Was Skewed

06/26/2012 1 comment

In fact, the coverage of the Arab Spring by virtually every leftist media organization has been skewed. Presenting the uprisings in the Muslim world as heralding the dawn of a glorious new day of Western-like freedom sung to the “Wind of Change” turned out to be yet another leftist pipe dream, an oxygen-deprived synopsis smothered by naiveté and an assumed conclusion. Anyone who said differently were arbitrarily described as fearmongering Islamophobes. Despite the BBC’s acknowledgement, however, the media will continue to lean left, even when common sense is always right …

By Paul Revoir, Daily Mail – “The BBC’s coverage of the Arab Spring has been heavily criticised – by the corporation’s bosses.

Head of news Helen Boaden admitted that her journalists got carried away with events and produced ‘over-excited’ reports.

She told a BBC Trust report that in Libya, where reporters were ‘embedded’ with rebels, they may have failed to explore both sides of the story properly.

Middle East editor Jeremy Bowen was among those criticised in the study into coverage of the uprisings, which found that ‘excitement’ did sometimes ‘infect’ the reporting, which some viewers described as ‘too emotive’ and ‘veering into opinion’.

The document, published yesterday, also raised concerns about the corporation’s use of footage filmed on mobile phones and other user-generated content. It noted that the BBC failed to warn viewers with ‘caveats’ about the ‘authenticity’ of such footage in 74 per cent of cases.

It also warned that the corporation ignored events in some countries as it concentrated on ‘big’ stories.

Miss Boaden is quoted saying: ‘In the conflict in Egypt in the beginning . . . we might have sounded over-excited – you can take on the colour of who you’re with. I had to say ‘just be careful about your tone’.

‘In Libya too, where we were essentially embedded [with the rebels] at the start, we might have sounded over-excited – you have to be careful if you can’t get to the other side of the story.’” Read more.
