4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands;

Erdogan renews death penalty call By Nikolaj Nielsen-AUG 8,16-EUOBSERVER
BRUSSELS, Today, 09:27-Turkey's president has renewed calls to reintroduce the death penalty amid a growing spat with Austria over EU membership.Some 1 million people on Sunday (7 August) in Istanbul rallied in support of Turkey's government following last month's failed military coup.Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey's president, told the so-called “democracy and martyrs” rally he would back capital punishment should the public and parliament approve it."It is the Turkish parliament that will decide on the death penalty... I declare it in advance, I will approve the decision made by the parliament," he said.But this brings into doubt what a senior Turkish MP from the ruling government party told EUobserver last week, that the death penalty was not on the table."It is not on our agenda at the moment, it is not on the agenda of the parliament," said Sena Nur Celik, an MP from the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) during a visit to Brussels.Celik said "emotions are very high" over the issue given the almost 240 people killed and over 2,000 injured during the July 15 coup attempt.Turkey abolished the death penalty in 2004 as part of a bid to join the European Union.Any reintroduction would put an end to talks and further cloud a migrant swap deal signed with Ankara in March. Part of that deal included accelerating membership talks by opening Chapter 33 on budgetary issues.Turkey's accession talks kicked off in 2005; but, only 1 of 35 chapters has so far been concluded.The deal also promised to lift short stay visa restrictions on Turks should Ankara meet outstanding requirements imposed by the EU.-Death threats for Austria-But any prospect of Turkey's bid to become an EU member, regardless of Erdogan's death penalty, appears increasingly dim.Austria's foreign minister Sebastian Kurz on Friday threatened to scupper expansion talks with Turkey."I have a seat and a vote in the [EU] foreign ministers' council. There the question is whether new negotiation chapters will be opened with Turkey, and I am against it," he said in an interview with Austrian daily Kurier.Kurz also said the criteria for visa liberalisation "will not be fulfilled by Turkey."Kurz's comments follows similar calls by Austria's chancellor Christian Kern.The chancellor said he would start discussions among other EU states to put an end to accession talks, given the democratic rollback in Turkey.Kern has since received death threats, reports AFP."Threats, even death threats, from the right wing and the radical part of the Turkish community have become reality for me,” he is quoted as saying in Osterreich daily.Turkish foreign minster Mevlut Cavusoglu also shot back on Kern.On Friday, he called Austria the "capital of radical racism", saying Kern should keep to his own affairs.The purge in Turkey against people affiliated with the outlawed Fethullah Gulen group continues.Turkey's government says Gulen, a Muslim cleric who has lived in self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania since 1991, is the mastermind behind the coup, a charge he denies.Some 70,000 people have so far been sacked, arrested or detained since mid-July.Erdogan, for his part, has promised to drop lawsuits against some 2,000 people who had insulted him.The move is seen by critics as part of a government-led effort to create a new narrative for Turkey with Erdogan at its centre.Russian news agency TASS reports that Erdogan will visit St Petersburg, on Tuesday, to smooth over ties with the Russian government.Erdogan said his planned visit will "mark new page in bilateral relations" between the two nations after Turkey downed a Russian jet fighter last November.
EU migrant deal not possible if Turkey's demands not met: Erdogan-[Reuters]-August 8, 2016-YAHOONEWS
PARIS (Reuters) - Turkey's migration agreement with the European Union may collapse if the EU does not keep its side of the deal on visa waivers, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan told France's Le Monde newspaper.Erdogan's comments reflect a shift in stance at a time when he is rebuking Western leaders for their response to the July 15 coup bid. Erdogan vowed to keep Turkey's promises on the migrant deal as recently as July 26."The European Union is not behaving in a sincere manner with Turkey," Erdogan said in comments published by Le Monde on Monday, noting that the visa waiver for Turkish citizens was supposed to kick in on June 1."If our demands are not satisfied then the readmissions will no longer be possible," Erdogan said.Ankara agreed in March to stop migrants from crossing into Greece in exchange for financial aid being revived, the promise of visa-free travel to much of the EU and accelerated membership talks.However, the reciprocal visa-free access has been delayed due to a dispute over Turkish anti-terrorism legislation and concern in the West about the scale of Ankara's crackdown following a failed coup.Criticizing the response of Washington and European leaders to the attempted putsch, Erdogan said the Turkish people had been abandoned by the West."The whole world reacted to the attack against Charlie Hebdo. Our prime minister joined a rally in the streets of Paris," Erdogan said, referring to the deadly militant attack on the office of the French satirical magazine in January 2015."I would have hoped that the leaders of the Western world would have reacted (to the coup attempt) in the same way and not have contented themselves with a few cliches."In Berlin on Monday, a spokeswoman for the German foreign ministry repeated that reinstatement of the death penalty in Turkey would end its bid to join the EU.Erdogan, speaking to German television station ARD last month after the coup attempt, said the Turkish people wanted the death penalty bringing back and those governing the country should listen to them.(Reporting by Richard Lough; Editing by Richard Balmforth)
Turkish deputy PM: 216 soldiers, gendarmes still at large after coup bid-[Reuters]-August 8, 2016-YAHOONEWS
ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey's Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus said on Monday that 186 soldiers and 30 gendarmes, all suspected of plotting last month's failed coup, were still at large.They included nine generals, Kurtulmus told reporters after a cabinet meeting.He also said 10 foreign nationals had been arrested, but he did not give any details about the foreigners' nationalities.Turkey has detained thousands of soldiers and dismissed more than 3,000 from the military over their alleged links to the July 15 coup attempt in which soldiers commandeered fighter jets, tanks and helicopters to overthrow the government.(Reporting by Gulsen Solaker and Ayla Jean Yackley; Writing by Humeyra Pamuk; Editing by Louise Ireland)
