‘They took my daughter away’: Parents say daughter who joined IS in Syria is victim

first_imgWarjiyem, 50, believes her daughter, Dani Fajarwati, 30, is a victim, not an Islamic State (IS) fighter, despite the fact that she is now in Al Hol Camp in Syria.“She went to Syria because her husband took her there. She is now in a tent at the camp with her toddlers,” Warjiyem told The Jakarta Post on Friday.In 2014, Warjiyem said, Dani and her husband went to Syria without telling Dani’s parents. Warjiyem believed her son-in-law was responsible for taking her daughter to Syria and joining the IS. Warjiyem cried the first time they spoke after five years without contact. She said her daughter was on the run and was hiding in empty houses. “I could not bear the thought that she, while taking care of her two young children, had to hide from one empty house to another only sustaining herself on half a bottle of water.”Since establishing contact, the parents have received pictures of their grandchildren, two boys aged 3.5 and 1.5.Warjiyem said she did not know where to ask for help so she could see her daughter again.  “I’m a good citizen, I will follow every government regulation [concerning repatriation], so please help us. We are the victims here. Please help me bring my daughter back.” Warjiyem said.She said she would support a deradicalization program for her daughter if necessary.Warjiyem remembered Dani as a funny, smart and cheerful girl who lived in their small house in Serengen subdistrict, Surakarta, Central Java. “But after she met her husband, she quickly became very private,” Warjiyem said.The couple married in secret in Lamongan, East Java, in 2013, without Warjiyem or her husband’s knowledge or approval.“My daughter often contacted her aunt, my sister. She remembered her number. We got this information from my sister,” she said.Warjiyem said she hoped President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, a former mayor of Surakarta, could help her family see their daughter again.“I beg you sir, Pak Jokowi, help me. I’m one of your people; I’m from [Surakarta] too. They took my daughter away. She was just a young girl; she did not know about anything. Please bring her back to Indonesia.“If you cannot bring my daughter home for some reason, please at least, Mr. President, have mercy and repatriate my grandchildren,” she said.Paidin, who was quiet for most of the interview, spoke up at the end to plead with the government. “I hope the President can see that not all of them are guilty. Please, allow some consideration. My daughter is a victim; she was just a callow person when her husband got into her [head],” he said.Many Indonesian citizens like Dani and her children are living in limbo in camps in Syria. Some 660 Indonesian citizens have been identified as foreign terrorist fighters who have pledged allegiance to IS and joined the movement in Syria and surrounding countries.Jokowi and Coordinating Legal, Political and Security Affairs Minister Mahfud MD share similar views on the issue. They both disagree with the idea of repatriating Indonesian citizens who went abroad to join IS.Topics : Warjiyem said she heard about her daughter’s whereabouts from her sister who lived in Jakarta and had a close relationship with Dani. Warjiyem and her husband Paidin, 53, learned that Dani was in the late stages of pregnancy when her husband took her to Syria.Warjiyem, 50, a resident of Surakarta, Central Java, shows a picture of her daughter, Dani Fajarwati, 30, and her grandson in Al Hol Camp in Syria. Warjiyem believes her daughter was a victim of her husband, who took her to Syria in 2014 without her parents’ knowledge. (JP/Kusumasari Ayuningtyas)After five years of silence between Dani and her parents, they finally spoke again last year.“While she was with her husband, we could not reach her. But after a big battle in March of last year, my daughter got separated from her husband, and since then, she has been able to contact me, borrowing her friends’ cell phones because she did not have one,” Warjiyem told the Post.last_img read more

Arsene Wenger: Diego Costa has got two Arsenal players sent off this season

first_img Press Association Wenger told Sky Sports 1: “Mertesacker made the challenge but I said he got Mertesacker sent off, you can not say it’s not true. “I haven’t seen it again, I said in the first game he got Gabriel sent off and today he got Mertesacker sent off. A fact is a fact, I do not accuse him of anything, it’s just what happened.” Asked about the incident later in his post-match press conference, Wenger said: “I said Costa got two of our players sent off in the last two games against Chelsea. Those are only facts. “Is the decision right or wrong? I don’t know. That is a fact, without accusing him of anything.” Wenger had not seen the incident again nor spoken to Mertesacker, but described referee Mark Clattenburg’s decision in the 18th minute as “quick and harsh”. “The referee made a decision and we have to get on with it,” Wenger said. “I didn’t know if Costa was offside or not, or if Per Mertesacker touched him or not. I don’t know. “It was of course frustrating, but it’s a decision we have to take on the chin and get on with our job. That’s what we did.” Arsene Wenger bemoaned the influence of Diego Costa as the Chelsea striker once again proved a thorn in 10-man Arsenal’s side. Costa in September tussled with Laurent Koscielny and Gabriel, who was sent off, and on Sunday drew a foul from Per Mertesacker which saw the German dismissed at the Emirates Stadium in Chelsea’s 1-0 win. The Chelsea striker then netted his sixth goal in six games to dent the Gunners’ title hopes and extend their winless league run against their London rivals to nine games. The Frenchman declined to address Costa’s role further, but rued his side’s inability to make the most of the opportunity against a Chelsea side whose title defence has fallen apart this season. “I would not compare today’s situation,” Wenger said. “It was not a confrontational situation like it was at Chelsea. “It was a fact of a game and a decision of a referee. I don’t think it was linked with any bad behaviour or attitude. “We come out with a lot of regrets because we couldn’t play with our (full) team, and looking at Chelsea today, there was a lot of room to beat them if we had played with 11 players.” Wenger praised his team, despite a fifth loss of the season which leaves them three points behind Leicester in third place. “Despite the disappointing result, we should have even more belief in ourselves after the game,” Wenger said. “The team were focused and resilient, fighting to the last second.” Striker Olivier Giroud was sacrificed for defender Gabriel after Mertesacker’s dismissal, a decision greeted by boos from Gunners fans. “Do you want to make a poll for every decision to see who does what?” Wenger said. “I made the decision and, for me, it was quite a normal decision. We knew we had to drop deeper and to use pace to get forward.” Chelsea interim boss Guus Hiddink is now unbeaten in seven matches and the Blues undefeated in eight since Jose Mourinho’s departure last month. Captain John Terry believes a top-four place and Champions League qualification is not beyond the team, despite a 14-point gap to fourth-placed Tottenham with 15 games to go. Hiddink said: “With that gap, it’s difficult to go into fourth position. But when the captain is saying that I will follow my captain.” Hiddink described the sending off as “obvious” and rued the decision to deny Cesc Fabregas a penalty when Koscielny body-checked the playmaker. “There was no doubt. From what I saw (Costa) was tripped,” Hiddink said. “I had some doubts over the Fabregas penalty, yes or no. I can understand why the referee didn’t give a penalty, fair enough. “But on Mertesacker’s red card, look closely. It was obvious I think.” Costa was withdrawn in the second half with a knee problem, but Hiddink did not know the extent of the injury. last_img read more

Syracuse shuts out Liberty in season-opener, 24-0

first_img Published on August 31, 2019 at 9:25 pm Contact Josh: jlschafe@syr.edu | @Schafer_44 LYNCHBURG, Va. — Andre Cisco knew that Liberty quarterback Stephen Calvert often doesn’t look off receivers. He followed Calvert’s eyes and ran. Before the pass made it near the intended Liberty receiver, Syracuse’s All-American sophomore safety had the ball trapped in his gloves, prepared to hand the Syracuse offense another opportunity. “That’s just the technique I happened to be playing on that play,” Cisco said. “So I ended up being on that side of the field pretty quick.”No. 22 Syracuse (1-0) scored a few plays later in a 24-0 victory on Saturday evening over Liberty (0-1) at Williams Stadium. In the Orange’s first opening game shutout since 2015, Liberty finished with negative-four net rushing yards and Syracuse tallied eight sacks, its most in a single game since 2009. For a Syracuse team so often defined by head coach Dino Babers’ fast-paced offense and scoring, the first game of 2019 couldn’t have been more different. “You know how hard it is to get a shutout?” said Babers, whose team scored over 40 points per game in 2018. “That’s big in today’s game.”Cisco’s interception bailed Syracuse out of position it was never supposed to be in. Not this year — the year after its best season in nearly two decades. The Orange entered their season-opener ranked for the first time since 1998. It was their opponents first game as an FBS team and their first-year head coach Hugh Freeze had to dictate from a hospital bed in the coaches booth.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut Syracuse just couldn’t get out of its own way. It started with a fumbled punt. Then, an unsportsmanlike conduct came after a pair of missed tackles, leaving Syracuse back tracking deep into its own zone. A swing from Trill Wiliams arm changed that. The sophomore defensive back clubbed the ball out of a Liberty’s receiver’s hands only for Syracuse to eventually hand the ball back on a fourth down interception. Still, the momentum had shifted. Liberty would barely breach 100 more yards of offense in the game. “It’s something that I haven’t experienced a lot in here,” said senior Kendall Coleman when asked about the defensive dominance. “I’m glad to be a part of it and I think that we just scraped the surface of what we can do this season.”Courtesy of Liberty AthleticsBabers said that SU’s defense, which features eight returning starters, was ahead of its offense all summer long. Four turnovers against Liberty proved that and kept SU near its pace from last year when it finished tied for second in the country in turnovers. It came in part from constant quarterback pressures and 14 tackles for a loss. And from storming defensive end Alton Robinson (.5 sacks) on one side, Coleman (2 sacks) spinning on the other and redshirt junior Josh Black (2 sacks) following close behind in the middle. One play in the third quarter epitomized the absurdity of it all. Syracuse lined up in a 3-3-5, meaning three defensive linemen would rush against six blockers.  Like an assembly line of fighting in an action movie, Coleman passed off each minion on his way to the bad guy.  The offensive tackle was too far outside Coleman off the line. The Orange pass rusher shifted inside where the guard wasn’t fast enough. Then came the short and stout running back, who Coleman spun past. Liberty’s blockers turned and watched as their assignment tore their quarterback down once more. “I’ve never been in a fight,” Coleman said. “But if you get in a street fight with three dudes are you going to fight them all at the same time? I feel like that’d be pretty tough.”After the game, as Babers dissected his team’s up-and-down opening game, he couldn’t help but put the result in perspective. Syracuse struggled at points against Liberty; there’s no doubt about it, but so had other teams across the country. Babers held a list of those teams which struggled in his hands, though he declined to share which teams were on the list. He referenced teams that were favored on Saturday and lost. Teams like Tennessee and Purdue, whose seasons now appear immediately grim. “And all those guys are going home now and they wish they had an ugly game where they won,” Babers said. “Instead they got an ugly game where they lost. I’m happy we got the win.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Yannick Bolasie set to stay with Crystal Palace rather than play in Africa Cup of Nations

first_imgCrystal Palace have been boosted by the news that Yannick Bolasie is not intending to play at next year’s African Cup of Nations.The French-born winger has been in scintillating form for the Eagles since joining from Bristol City.But his performances have caught the eye of DR Congo, who know he qualifies for them, and their coach Claude Le Roy is keen on a call-up.Bolasie is the cousin of current international Lomana Lua Lua and the African nation are looking to call him up in time to play in South Africa.However, whilst Bolasie is interested in representing the Leopards, it will not be at the finals of the 2013 African Cup of Nations, which would have meant he missed over a month of the Championship season.“No he won’t be playing for DR Congo at the African Cup of Nations next year,” his agent Tony Finnigan confirmed to Sky Sports.“He is interested and is flattered by the interest from DR Congo, but he has just moved to Palace, is enjoying his football and wants to concentrate on them for now.“It is something he will look at, but he will not be going to South Africa – it is not the right time for him.”last_img read more

“Tempo of Ghana’s top flight too slow” – John Paintsil

first_imgGhana defender John Painstil has described the tempo of the First Capital Plus Premier League as slow and has charged clubs to adopt more aggressive playing styles.A veteran of English and Israeli top flight football, Paintsil says he’s watched a few local league games and isn’t impressed.“I have seen some of the games since I came back especially Hearts of Oak’s games and what I can say is that the league is going well but the tempo must go up,” Paintsil told Joy Sports.”The league here is very slow as compared to the ones I have seen here in Africa,” said the man who now plays in the South African Premier League with Maritzburg United,With 10 matches to end the season, AshGold is leading the pack with 37 points while the bottom place team, BA United, has 16 points“We are doing well but I believe when there is more sponsorship and good facilties with players and coaches we can lift the standard of play, the ball is in our court to make things happen here in Ghana.” Painstil played for Berekum Arsenals and Liberty Professionals when he played in the local top flight before going to Europe. –last_img read more

Wellington council approves applying for walking trail grant around Hargis

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Wellington City Council has voted to apply for a Kansas Department of Transportation grant which if obtained would fund the construction of concrete hike and biking trails around Hargis Creek Watershed in northeast Wellington.The city council and staff members have been discussing building a path that can be used for walkers, joggers and bicyclers. The long-term goal is to build a path that would loop around and connect the city’s four biggest parks:•Hargis,•Century Park – formerly known as Lions Club Park – in central Wellington north of the U.S. 80-160 viaduct,•Woods Park, south of the municipal golf course,•Worden Park, in northwest Wellington, home of the sports complex.But the completion of such a path route is years away. Right now, the council is looking to build just one phase of the overall project.At its Dec. 18 meeting, the council voted to overrule a recommendation of the Park Board, an advisory board for the council, and go with a path around Hargis Creek Watershed. The park board had recommended Woods Park in that it would be easier to eventually connect with Worden Park, said Wellington Mayor Roger Stallbaumer.Instead the council decided to start with Hargis. The path, if built, would loop around the Hargis Creek and eventually head west onto Hillside Road (see proposed map below). The Hargis Creek project would be built in four phases. The first phase would be two loop paths on the east end of the watershed, the second phase would be on the west end. The third phase would be on the south end, and a fourth phase would be to stretch west on Hillside Road.The funding will come out out of a Transportation Enhancement Grant fund through KDOT which currently has $15 million to disperse in a 2013-14 timeframe. The city must have an application to KDOT by February 15.Wellington City Economic Development Director Cody Sims says KDOT will recommend the city submit a grant application with the entire project, and they would award the selected cities for a certain number of feet for a certain number of dollars.Sims estimates that the Hargis project will cost $541,946. The state would pay for 80 percent and the city would pay for 20 percent of the funding.The city did contact the Wellington school officials about whether this would mess with the cross country tracks at the annual meet held in September. With a few modifications, it was decided both the hike/bike path and cross country routes would not interfere with the other.Proposed hiking/biking path around Hargis Creek. Close Forgot password?

I’ll be damn if they get my vote on election again. Can’t believe I have minus 2 expelling my health reason for not wanting the trail. Just shows how disrespectful jerk people are.

Report Reply 0 replies · active 397 weeks ago +5 Vote up Vote down JaneJane · 397 weeks ago It’s not that the city is not wanting to fix all of the other stuff that needs done around Wellington, it’s that there is no funding for it. Recently we have been fortunate enough to be the recipient of two grants that have provided us funding for walking trails.This is another one of those opportunities. The people who are giving out the monies for these grants are the ones that determine what you can and can not do with their money.Since exercise and healthy lifestyles are at the forefront right now, that is where the money is going. I am sure that all of us would like to see a sidewalk out to McDonalds and WalMart. I am sure that the City Council is looking for funding for that as we speak. Until something comes up as a way to pay for that we need to do projects that we can get money for.
