Seit August sind deutlich mehr Geflüchtete illegal nach Deutschland eingereist als in den Monaten zuvor, weil der belarussische Diktator Alexander Lukaschenko sie nicht mehr am Grenzübertritt hindert. Sie kommen nach Minsk und schlagen sich von dort aus über Polen nach Brandenburg, Sachsen oder Mecklenburg-Vorpommern durch. Die meisten landen zunächst in der Zentralen Ausländerbehörde in Eisenhüttenstadt. Die freie Autorin Doreen Reinhard war dort. Im Podcast schildert sie ihre Eindrücke. Die Kabuler Universität ist ein einzigartiger Ort und kaum mit anderen Unis zu vergleichen. Sie ist eine der wichtigsten Institutionen des Landes, von ihr gingen sowohl die kommunistischen als auch die islamistischen Strömungen des Landes aus, die das Land über Jahrzehnte geprägt haben. Nun haben die Taliban die Kontrolle übernommen.

In Afghanistan and Beyond, Qatar Flexes Its Diplomatic Muscle

With its rich natural gas reserves and strategic location, the Gulf monarchy of Qatar has long played an important role in regional and global diplomacy that belies its small size. It has mediated or facilitated a number of sensitive negotiations, including the talks that led to the peace agreement the United States signed in February 2020 with the Taliban. Since then, and even after the Taliban overthrew the internationally backed government in Kabul this summer, officials in Doha have continued to exercise influence in Afghanistan. Qatar's diplomatic efforts have not always been smooth sailing, however. For more than three years, it had to weather a blockade that was imposed on the country by a group of countries led by neighboring Saudi Arabia and the UAE, fellow members of the Gulf Cooperation Council. That embargo was only lifted in January of this year. Today on Trend Lines, Annelle Sheline, a research fellow in the Middle East program at the Quincy Institute for Responsible Statecraft, joins WPR's Elliot Waldman to discuss the unique role that Qatar plays in the Middle East and in the broader Islamic world, as well as the complicated dynamics in the region that it must navigate as it does so.

The U.S. military fully withdrew from Afghanistan over a month ago.  However, many U.S. citizens and Afghan allies remain there and are vulnerable as they find themselves stranded in a nation now controlled by the Taliban.  After realizing so many were left behind, Afghan War veteran, former U.S. Navy Lieutenant Commander and Co-Founder of Project Dynamo, Bryan Stern felt he had to do something.  On The FOX News Rundown earlier this week, host Dave Anthony spoke Stern about how he chartered a flight full of Americans and allies out of Kabul and how Project Dynamo's donations made the safe return of hundreds of people possible. Stern also explained how his experience as a veteran and 9/11 first responder drove him to take action. The original interview was too long and we couldn't include it all in our segment.

Reporting on the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan is neither easy nor safe, and journalists trying to get the story out on the struggling country still face many obstacles from a Taliban who says they have changed their ways. The situation there remains tense with Americans still stuck and hundreds of Afghans flocking to the passport office in Kabul to get the documents, while Taliban security men beat back crowds to maintain order. FOX's Eben Brown speaks to FOX's Trey Yingst who just returned from assignment in Afghanistan and shares the stories of reporting on the Taliban takeover.

The Czech election this week will decide whether embattled billionaire businessman Andrej Babis gets another four-year term as Prime Minister. He's under pressure from new revelations in the Pandora papers – seeming to show that he was involved in the purchase of 16 properties on the French Riviera using offshore companies. Mr Babis has denied any wrongdoing: “I don't own any property in France,” he said. “It's nasty, false accusations that are meant to influence the election.” He has always governed in coalition – but he now faces a tough challenge from the centre-right opposition and also has the far-right nipping at his heels. So which way are the Czechs heading? Rob Cameron reports from Prague. Over the past two months – like many international organisations - the BBC has been busy organising a way out of Afghanistan for many of its staff in the country and trying to get them to places of safety – in the UK and elsewhere. Karim Haidari was one of them. After a nerve-wracking three days spent waiting at Kabul airport, he and his family managed to fly out. They are now safe in Britain – but there's a lot for him to think about as they try to start their lives again. How can we feed the world – on a planet with finite resources and a growing number of people? Moreover, more of those people are eating more meat and fish – and those animals in turn need feeding, and protein, to grow. At the moment, soy and fishmeal are the main sources of protein for animal feed – but the demand for soy has been linked to deforestation in South America, while the fishmeal trade helps drive over-fishing in the oceans. So now manufacturers are looking for alternative sources of protein. The use of insects has been permitted in fish feed for years, but the European Union recently decided to allow them in poultry and pig feed too. Emilie Filou went to visit an ultra-modern bug farm in France where the animals they raise might be tiny, but the plans and the ambition are very big indeed. The Aland Islands in the Baltic Sea have been settled for over seven thousand years –they're full of Neolithic remains, showing how their earliest inhabitants hunted seals and birds there. But the islands have changed hands many times since then over their history – sometimes being treated as little more than bargaining chips by their larger neighbours. These days they enjoy a quirky – and carefully negotiated – sort of independence. Mark Stratton asked some of the islanders who they feel closest to in today's Europe. Smell and taste are the most intimate and evocative of the senses – with a startling power to transport us to other times and places. Reha Kansara recently explored some of her family history in Kenya – and part of her quest centred on a childhood favourite - the delicious potato fritter known as the Maru Bhajia. Would it taste as good in its birthplace in Nairobi? And what else was on the menu during her journeys into Kenya's past?

As the holiday season approaches again as we continue to try to get the coronavirus pandemic under control, some are asking if we will be able to celebrate and gather normally unlike last year. White House Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci came under fire for saying "it's too soon tell" whether it will be safe for Americans to gather with family members for Christmas this year during an appearance on a Sunday talk show. He followed up on the comment saying it was "misinterpreted" and encourages people to do so and to get vaccinated. Fox News Medical Contributor Dr. Marty Makary joins to discuss what we can expect for the upcoming holiday season in the U.S. Dr. Makary also weighs in on the experimental COVID-19 pill by Merck that could be available by the end of the year and how it could be a game changer when it comes to treating the virus.   The U.S. military fully withdrew from Afghanistan on August 30th, 2021. However not all U.S. citizens and Afghan allies were evacuated, leaving many vulnerable as they found themselves stranded in a nation now controlled by the Taliban. In response to this dangerous situation, many veterans have taken the initiative to organize the safe return of these people from Afghanistan to America. Afghan War veteran, former U.S. Navy Lieutenant Commander and Co-Founder of Project Dynamo, Bryan Stern joins to break down how he chartered a flight full of Americans and allies out of Kabul, how Project Dynamo's donations made the safe return of hundreds of people possible and why his experience as a veteran and 9/11 first responder drove him to take action to make sure there was no one left behind.   Plus, commentary by syndicated columnist and author of "America's Expiration Date," Cal Thomas.

Journalist Hollie McKay joins Tim from Afghanistan where she lives and from where she files her reports as the Taliban strengthens its control over the country in the wake of the U.S. pullout. Hollie is a war crimes investigator, an author and a reporter who gives a view on what life is like for the people of Afghanistan now that the Taliban is in control. https://traffic.libsyn.com/secure/shapingopinion/Afghanistan_auphonic.mp3 Photo Source: Hollie McKay America just marked the 20th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and four hijacked aircraft. The attacks were waged by Islamic terrorists with the backing of Osama Bin Laden and the terrorist group Al Qaeda.  At the time, Al Qaeda and the Taliban operated terrorist training camps in Afghanistan, where the 9/11 hijackers trained. On October 7, 2001, the United States and Great Britain responded to the 9/11 attacks by targeting terrorist training camps in Afghanistan with bombs and cruise missiles. That led to a war against the terrorists in that country and a 20-year war-time occupation. By August of this year, that conflict started to come to its end as the United States pulled out of the country. Over the 20 years of the Afghan war, more than 3,500 allied troops died in combat. That includes 2,448 American service members. More than 20,000 Americans suffered combat-related wounds. Many more came home with scars you can't see. According to Brown University, roughly 69,000 Afghan security forces were killed during that period, as well as 51,000 Afghan civilians and 51,000 terrorists and militants. The United States had spent $2 trillion on the conflict.  In the end, the U.S. left billions of dollars in military equipment and arms, including armored vehicles, drones and military helicopters. In 10 days in August, from August 6th through the 15th, the Taliban took control of Kandahar, Mazar-e-Sharif and then the capital city, Kabul. The incumbent Afghan government quickly fell apart with the country's president fleeing to the UAE. The U.S. evacuated its embassy, and thousands of American citizens went to the Kabul airport to flee the country. During the evacuation, two suicide bombers attacked the Kabul airport, killing more than 103 people, including 12 American Marines and one U.S. Navy medic. By the time the Taliban took control, there were still an undetermined number of Americans and Afghan allies still in the country.
