World News Daily Report “It is alleged that the first man to walk on the moon was Neil Armstrong in 1969,” Erdoğan said. “In fact, Muslim space explorers reached our satellite 334 years before that, in 1635. Everyone knows the story of the famous aviator, Lagâri Hasan Çelebi, the “Ottoman Rocket Man”, who made the first successful manned rocket flight in 1633. What you might not know, is that he attempted to reach the moon, two years later, and could very well have succeeded!”
“Why do you not believe it? Because you’ve never believed that a Muslim can do such a thing, just like you’ve never believed that our ancestors could manage to launch ships in the Golden Horn after transporting them across land,” Erdoğan said, referring to Ottoman Sultan Mehmet II’s conquest of Istanbul in 1453. “This claim is not new. A number of academics in Turkey and in the rest of the world have made this claim, and I believe they are right. NASA may have destroyed most of the physical evidence of the Ottoman’s success during the Apollo 11 mission, but we’ll try to find any evidence that might have escaped the cover up.”

Plans to organize a Pride Parade between Tensta and Husby in northern Stockholm has leftists up in arms, who are now planning a counter-demonstration.
To place an LGBT parade to the suburbs dominated by immigrants from the Middle East, however, is an expression of pure racism, according to critics.
Noah North and Emelie Mårtensson, who themselves live in the Järva area, has decided to organize a counter-demonstration against the “Järva Pride”. They argue that the parade “pits two oppressed groups against each other.”
He now writes itself into a pattern that we have seen from other countries, to make racist points. It is in this context that one must see this, says Ulrika Westerlund, chairman of RFSL.
