Turkey rightly considers the group an offshoot of the revolutionary, Communist-inspired Kurdistan Workers Party , or PKK, which has carried out a 30-year-long civil war in Turkey and has always been designated a terrorist organization by Turkey, NATO and the United States.
He also ridiculed the $110 billion arms deal the United States and Saudi Arabia announced during Trump's visit , suggesting it was Saudi Arabia's way of making amends for the September 11 attacks. The tensions with Iran that Trump is tapping into on his first foray overseas run deep. That refrain echoed the Saudi King Salman's description of the Iranian government as "the tip of the spear of global terrorism".
From this, it seems that Trump will fight against the Iranian Regime, their spread of terrorism, and their abuse of their own people. In the days before President Hassan Rouhani's re-election victory in Iran this weekend, a video of one of his old speeches circulated on social media.
Once more , he will likely be received warily, a president who ran on a campaign of "America First" with suggestions of disentangling the United States from worldwide pacts, now engaged in two days of pomp and policy with the leaders of the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Canada.
Republicans may have a touch of tunnel vision, suggests Robert Blendon, who follows the politics of health care at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. The AHCA, as passed by the House, would tend to increase such premiums before 2020 compared with those under the PPACA--by an average of approximately 20% in 2018 and 5% in 2019 as the funding provided by the AHCA to reduce premiums had a larger effect on pricing.
The Muslim calendar is based on the cycle of the moon, but the Gregorian calendar is based on the Sun. However, it is always a 30-day-long tradition. Ramadan begins May 27 this year. "It's like regiments for athletes", Muhammad said. In Europe, the European Council of Fatwa and Research have also decided that May 27 will be the start of Ramadan.
FOLKENFLIK: He certainly saw it that way. Roger Ailes' death shook the Fox News community. Sherman: Federal prosecutors as we speak are subpoenaing documents and records to look at whether Ailes and Fox News broke laws in the way he ran Fox to serve his personal agenda.

In addition, instead of the federal government's reimbursing states for Medicaid expenses for each person, states can turn the money into a "block grant", which would cut the program still further by enabling states to kick people off Medicaid coverage, charge premiums, and cut benefits for children.
The two presidents' statements also didn't touch on another key Turkey-related issue: the extradition of cleric Fethullah Gulen. Mr Trump was painting the US-led fight against ISIL - which in Syria relied heavily on Kurdish forces that Turkey labels terrorists - as floundering, and promising a change of strategy.
There were some shots from in close, there were hit posts, but there were no goals. A series of unlikely and freakish events can conspire to lead a largely unheralded team to a surprising Stanley Cup title. The Penguins answered the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round and the Capitals in the second with similar styles of play. "When they scored their goal, nothing changed on the bench", said Boucher.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, backed by airstrikes from the USA -led coalition, are on a multi-pronged offensive, clashing with militants northeast and northwest of Raqqa.

Andrew McCabe, who was the FBI's deputy director, has now become its acting head after Donald Trump ousted Mr Comey earlier this week. The firing of James Comey has come under huge scrutiny as FBI is investigating alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S.
They say they're still none the wiser as to how the revenue figure was reached, how much each institution will pay, which parts of their businesses will be targeted or if it will apply to transactions with the reserve bank. "If (the levy) is not passed on (to customers), you're stripping capital out of the banks when they have to be unquestionably strong", Murray said.
Virginia's men's tennis team made sure that Coach Brian Boland's final home match of his career had a happy ending on Saturday, and in doing so guaranteed themselves a spot in the NCAA Championships' Round of 16 for the 14th consecutive year.
North Korea has shot back at GOP Sen. There are two other USA citizens serving jail sentences for anti-North Korea activities. He went to Pyongyang to devote himself to the development of North Korea's agricultural technology so that the North can be self-sufficient with food.
White House and other USA officials insisted on anonymity to disclose private conversations. Back in October, Trump was outspoken in praising Comey's handling of the email probe, and he kept the Federal Bureau of Investigation director in his post upon taking office - in what critics saw as a tacit reward for his role in damaging Clinton's chances.
His spokeswoman said membership on the panel would allow Dunlap "an opportunity to defend the elections process from a position of authority, as a fully informed and engaged participant". And the ex-head of the F.B.I., who was sacked on spurious grounds after pressing an investigation into possible connections between the Trump campaign and the Russian interference in last year's election.
In Courtenay-Comox, there were 3,500 absentee ballots cast in 2013 and they slightly favoured the NDP, tightening Liberal Don McRae's margin of victory by less than one percentage point.

Already unhappy with a slowing economy and shrinking opportunities for the young, South Koreans took to the streets by the hundreds of thousands a year ago when President Park Geun-hye was accused of conspiring with a friend to extort bribes from the country's big conglomerates.
For demand to change we have to come up with better ways of acknowledging mums. Mother's Day celebrates mothers and mother-like figures in our lives. I may not have had the decades most people do, but that time was enough for me to really know my mother, to call her my friend, and to know she loved me as much as I love her.
House of Representatives passed a Republican-sponsored health care bill, the American Health Care Act, on Thursday. That CBO score was published on March 13 - almost two months ago. President Trump celebrated the passage at the White House. "Then you'd get together". They will still be able to if the current bill becomes law. Price said the changes will make sure that people who rely on Medicaid get the care and coverage that they need.
But there hasn't been much fun in being a Browns fan in recent years, especially during last year's 1-15 season. These are not the methods of the old Browns, the team that traded up for Johnny Manziel and Brady Quinn and picked Brandon Weeden and 70,000 other quarterbacks whose primary attribute was that they happened to be available in the same year the Browns decided their last quarterback experiment had run its course.
Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, said the House bill poses "more questions than answers about its consequences". The bill was approved before the Congressional Budget Office had a chance to evaluate costs or determine how many people likely would be shut out of the market.

Wavering moderate Republicans had anxious that the legislation to overhaul President Barack Obama's 2010 signature healthcare law would leave too many people with pre-existing medical conditions unable to afford health coverage. Well, a little bit of it. Ryan called the AHCA "the best bill possible". "Yes, premiums will be coming down. Deductibles are going to come down", he said.
And Democrats and the pragmatic Republicans who negotiated the bill successfully defended other accounts targeted by Trump such as foreign aid, the Environmental Protection Agency, support for the arts, and economic development grants, among others.
On April 26, 2017, President Trump ordered federal officials to review designations of onshore and marine national monuments made under the Antiquities Act of 1906 . That's not only a brazen attack on the 111-year-old Antiquities Act under which those monuments were designated but also a barefaced betrayal of the American people.
The Wizards found the same shots, and more, they couldn't make through the previous games. Defenses will typically swarm around Thomas in an effort to limit one of the most-clutch shooters in the game, but his ability to find the open man in space is nearly as risky as his shot (24.4 points per game plus an additional 15.3 points per game created by assist in the playoffs).
