    I think Turkey is OK. The security there looks very tight. I guess it’s due to current incident originally caused by a youtube video made by a Jewish American.

    Hollywood actress and special UN envoy Angelina Jolie visited Syrian refugees at a camp in Turkey

    HOLLYWOOD star and UN special envoy Angelina Jolie on Thursday visited Turkey’s largest camp for Syrian refugees near the border, where overjoyed thousands welcomed her, Turkish media reported.
    Jolie, accompanied by UN High Commissioner for Refugees Antonia Guterres, met with some of the 12,000 refugees at Oncupinar camp in southeastern Kilis city, which lies right on the border with their conflict-wracked homeland.
    The Oscar-winning actress listened to the stories of the refugees who fled the violence in Syria, where a brutal conflict that began as a peaceful uprising against the Damascus regime has now killed around 27,000 people, according to some estimates.
    The media was not allowed to cover Jolie’s meetings with the refugees.
    Jolie was also briefed by Turkish officials at Oncupinar on the conditions at the border camps which altogether shelter some 80,000 registered refugees, Anatolia news agency reported.
    Jolie, who first visited a different refugee camp in Turkey in June last year, will also travel to another camp in nearby Gaziantep city, and move on to Ankara for talks with officials, including President Abdullah Gul.
    On Tuesday, Jolie visited a refugee camp in Jordan where she appealed to the world to “do everything they can to support these refugees” fleeing the escalating conflict in their country.
    Ankara has called for safe zones to protect people on Syrian soil, but the proposal fell on deaf ears at a UN Security Council meeting last month

    I hope we get word when Angie is out of the Middle East and back with her famly. This trip seems very dangerous. Be safe Angie and Pres. Gutierez of UNHCR.

  • Rose

    Good morning fans. Hi Cee, I just saw on ABC news US Embassy in Yemen is under attack. Thinks are looking very bad in the middle east. I’m praying Angie returns home safe. I am praying for those who have to live under these atrocious conditions. my heart bleeds for the women and children especially with no place to call home at this time.

  • Hal

    She wanna promote herself!!

  • Rose

    On a lighter note, a few days ago I asked, has anyone experienced their iPad changing the spelling of words typed. This morning on the Daily Mail I saw this funny item. It’s auto correct, on spell check feature.
    Message sent: screw the gym, I’m getting pregnant tonight.
    Message was to have been: screw the gym, I’m getting pringles tonight.

    Another message sent: grandma is in the grave.
    Message was to have been; grandma is in the garage.
    I’m trying to lightened up on all the heavy news we are having for a few days.

  • Rose

    @Hal: People are dying and you honestly believe Angie would go to the middle east to promote her self. Are you crazy? if she wanted to promote herself, all she had to do is put on a bikini and go lay down on some beach in Mexico, or go to NYC fashion show front row seat that’s all it takes to get attention.

  • aniston is filty loser

    grandma jenHO must be so elated having just bought a MIDGET and the hottest hair award and its not even her REAL hair. Must suck to be her. She is a pathetic loser who needs constant reassurance that she’s still relevant in HW. I guess being the JOKE in HW is okay. LOL

  • angelina is fine

    @Rose:

    if it was so dangerous, angelina would not have gone.
    she is not stupid.

    it’s not like angelina is inside syria itself, or inside libiya.

    can we pls give angelina some credit, if angelina is cowed by extremists then the terrorist wins, keep calm and live ur live as normal.

    of course we want her safe, but stop panicking pls.

  • NAN

    Wow, a coward Dolly on duty huh ? # 215, 13/09/2012 at 7:14am

  • Rose

    I’ve seen Angie in a bikini and I’ve seen her in shorts and IMO she looks better than that short legs SS. People believe SS has a great body because her PR guru sells it to people like you, there are too many women in HW with better body than the SS. So keep buying the hype. When was the last time have you seen pillow face and muffin top SS?BTW, her wedding planner was on HLN and when the host refer to SS amazing body, his answer was, I DON’T THINK SO.

  • hopeso

    LOVE YOU MUCH!!!!!!

    Beauty and grace and everything else…..Gorgeous

  • 2Park5

    I love the jolie-Pitts

  • Rose

    @angelina is fine: The entire region is very dangerous. Do you believe they plan the trip overnight? These trips are planned months in advance. You don’t have to be living in fear, but you have to live in reality. That’s why they are sending reinforcement to the middle east. You have to prepare for the possibility for the unexpected. Again, no one is panicking. Some of the trolls here would be happy to hear that she is in harms way. I’m hoping you are not one.

  • angelina is fine

    @Rose:

    angelina is not forced to do anything.
    if advisors said it was too dangerous, angelina would not have made the trip. cancelling would be so easy, even last minute.
    she is not reckless.

    there are fans wishing angelina home the second she arrives.
    i get the feeling people like cee really want angelina chained to a kitchen sometimes. JMHO.

  • Rose

    @angelina is fine: Have you read some of Angie’s interviews in the past of how much danger they were in hiding in bonkers ect. Hiding passports, ect . Brad had said he worries when she is away. These trips are at times very dangerous, you don’t know any more than us, so stop saying she she is fine. It would be more realistic saying I’m praying she is fine, or I’m hoping she is fine.

    EXCLUSIVE: ‘Brad Pitt was gorgeous, but we’re not on speed dial!’ says Donna Air

    Donna Air has given omg! the goss on exactly what working with Brad Pitt is like in the flesh and it involves the word ‘gorgeous’ alot.

    Well, we could have guessed as much.
    When we found out Donna had been working with Brad on Ridley Scott’s new film The Counselor, we knew we had to get all the goss we could.
    So what exactly is Brad like to work with?
    Donna told omg!: “Yes, I worked with Brad Pitt a few weeks ago — he was as gorgeous as you would expect.”
    “He looks cool and he is cool. He has a certain way about him, seriously something about him is just cool.”
    So we gather that he is cool but was he so cool that she fancied him? Actually, ‘do you fancy Brad Pitt?’ is a pretty silly question isn’t it?
    “Did I fancy him? I was too busy trying to stay focused! Sadly there was no dirt but yes was he gorgeous!”
    And are they still in touch?
    “We’re not exactly on speed dial.”
    Oh, OK then.
    We also asked whether Angelina ever rocked up to set with a couple of kids under her arm to which Donna laughed and said: “No, I didn’t get to meet the family, sadly.”

  • Rose

    @Phool: Good morning Phool, I’m doing great. Don’t be afraid of the dentist, I’m telling you, last week I had root canal and I did not take one advil after I left his office, no pain whatsoever, after the procedure, he gave me 3 advil and that’s it. Yesterday was just to put on a cap that fell out. No pain.
    We are proud of Angie and we know how much danger she is in when she goes on her trips. This morning there was someone here who believes if it’s dangerous she would canceled. It’s dangerous all the times. I don’t know why they believes she would be so protected by the UNHCR if her trips are not dangerious. Men carry guns, putting her in a caravan with armed men following her at all times. Also,they are those who say, why does she have to advertise what she is doing, dah, because Angie brings awareness to the situation on the grounds, wherever she goes. Have a great day.

  • Phool

    Hi Passing Through How are you ? missing your posts I know as Tennis is over at the moment till Australian starts yes I took a wilde guys you like tennis lol.
    I know you have a life away from here unlike certain criters, but still keep posting ok thats not a demand but a request .

  • Whamo

    THIS JUST IN, BRAD AND HEROINA ARE STILL NOT MARRIED.
    That is all..

  • Phool

    @ Rose Root canal ohhhhhhhh( ok that’s me being a bit over dramatic) but I am genuinely glad to hear you are ok are you still on painkillers? I think after hearing too many horror stories from one particular co worker regarding their dentist experiences just puts me off .

    ITA with you in regards to Angelina you know people are jealous full stop they cant hack one women can have so much Influence of bringing awareness, this is her 2Nd Job so to speack she is a Special Envoy its part of her duties and before some one else jumps down my throat saying what influence we already know about these issues REALLY DID YOU ?

    If that was the case why wasn’t Syria/Refugees being discussed till 2 days ago I had not heard any one (NOT INCLUDING FANS) say oh what’s happening to those destitute refugees. Shame we have people in this world mostly bitter unemployed, uneducated loonfiers that think they are soo above every one else that nothing matters. When they were snarling about coinciding dates of Angie being in Syria and 9/11 why weren’t they snarling about Kim Kartashans mother being on NBC being interviewed about there humours plastic surgeries I guess that takes more president than humanitarian crisis.

    Sorry Rose I apologies for my mini rant but just some people make me so angry. Double standards when it’s Angie

  • dawne

    The only ring Ticky has is the one around her bathtub her butler is presently cleaning. She is lying in wait for the next JP red carpet appearance for KTS to wear a loose top and a new ring of some variety on her left hand.

  • Rose

    @Phool: No pain killer not even a aspirin needed. No pain whatsoever believe me, it was pain free.
    You are entitled to rant, we know some people are ignorant, and have a closed mind. Hopefully they will grow up one day.

    I see that one of SS troll is here talking about Angie not married yet. When did Angie or Brad gave out a wedding date. In the mean time troll girl forget we have not seen the engagement ring and it’s over a month now. I’m guessing that engagement was a PR ploy, we will see if it’s a
    plant and deny story coming soon.

  • anustin

    thank you,sara of BRANGELINAFORUM for the vid.lovin the salute.that may not be for anjie,but my girl is lookin official.bless u, baby.

  • Phool

    @Rose nice to hear there’s no pain. But glad to see trolls are in Mega mega pain, have seen when ever you pull them up on the ring less situation it all goes quite then its deflect deflect deflect they pick another year another rant.

    You know what Rose I think they most definitely are NOT Engaged it was all to get that Break up story cover-up. Who leaves their fiancé ring less goes off back to another city enjoying the new celebrity lime life and doesn’t look back.

    Next you will hear they have parted ways and are still friends how ironic

    Good afternoon Dawne

    That was a good one lol bathtub ring, I was in the processes of mailing you glad to hear you are fine I know you had all that stress when you were away and travelling sometimes takes it out off you. Keep your strength up loads of water will cleanse any bugs.
    ITA when you were saying Brad is one very Proud fiance, Brad and the kids must be walking around with their chests thrust out too most defiantly they are dawne they couldn’t be prouder she is doing an awesome job. She is doing it with such grace & class that is putting others to shame. And yes she is a solder, a solder of humanity & integrity a solder that never gives up no matter who difficult and dangerous the situation she is carrying on regardless.
    She is getting the much needed attention to those who are unable do so.
    So it goes with out saying Yes Angie we salute you we are with you 100% in what ever you do.
    No wonder Brad’s parents & his brother and sister love her

    Turkish Press Review (September 13, 2012)

    Thursday, 13 September 2012

    Turkish newspapers on Thursday covered Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s visit to Turkish martyrdom in Azerbaijan, actress Angelina Jolie’s and UN High Commissioner for Refugees Guterres’ visit to refugee camps in Turkey and the painful death of U.S. Ambassador to Libya. The Anadolu Agency does not verify these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.

    All Turkish dailies covered the painful death of U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens in Bengazi on Tuesday. Daily MILLIYET headlined the U.S. State Secretary Hillary Clinton’s quote saying as, “Whereas we liberalized them”.

    Daily TURKIYE headlined “Meaningful visit to Turkish martyrdom from Erdogan” and said that Turkish PM Erdogan visited the martyrdom in Azerbaijan with the President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and prayed after leaving roses.

    Another topic that was covered by most of the papers the upcoming visit of actress Angelina Jolie and UN High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres to Syrian refugee camps in Turkey. When the paper went for publishing it was not updated (UN Refugee Agency special envoy Angelina Jolie and UN High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres have arrived Turkey on Thursday morning separately).

    Jolie visits refugees in Turkey
    (UKPA) – 3 hours ago
    Angelina Jolie has arrived in Turkey to visit Syrian refugees in her role as special envoy for the UN refugee agency.
    Turkey’s Anadolu news agency said the Hollywood star and UNHCR chief Antonio Guterres are expected to visit refugee camps along the border between Turkey and Syria. Reports say the actress will later travel to Ankara, the Turkish capital, for talks with officials who are handling the humanitarian crisis.
    Turkey hosts about 80,000 Syrians who have fled the 18-month conflict in their country. Earlier this week, Angelina visited refugees in Jordan, which is also sheltering those who have fled the civil war in neighbouring Syria.

    Angelina Jolie visits Syrian refugees

    By WENN.com | Tuesday, September 11, 2012
    The Hollywood actress, who is a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations, has flown to the Middle East to draw attention to the plight of those who have escaped from war-torn Syria during 18 months of bloody fighting between rebels and government forces.
    More than 81,000 people have fled to Jordan and Jolie visited the Zaatari Refugee Camp in Mafraqhas on Tuesday (11Sep12) to meet some of the survivors.
    During her trip, she thanked Jordanian officials for looking after the refugees during the crisis, and she also urged the international community do to more to help.
    She says, “I am grateful to Jordan and the border countries for saving the lives (of those) who are dying in Syria. It’s an extraordinary thing. We encourage the international community to support the people here until one day they go back home.”
    The Oscar winner adds, “I am very concerned, the world is very concerned. What is very heartbreaking is when Syrian people ask you why you think no one is able to find a solution for them. What they described on the ground, hearing it from them is so horrific. When you meet so many innocent people and civilians, the people of Syria are asking who is on their side. (They say) ‘Who is going to help us as the months go on?’”
