IN the same manner in which ISIS is hammered at this site, Turkey, similarly, remains front and center. By the way, this decision is not the result of a turkey crap-shoot! In fact, Turkey is so central to the chaos engulfing the Mid East (and beyond), its terror aligned leadership deserve a starring role. Central actors.
ERDOGAN, Turkey’s current President (its ex PM), was also featured at a global interview (Oct. 2013), one which flew around the web like a house on fire. For good reason.
Wolff Bachner: Ever since Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan came to power in 2003, Turkey has slowly evolved from a secular state to a religious theocracy based on Sharia Law and Islam. Erdogan has taken every opportunity to undo decades of good relations with Israel while supporting Hamas and Jihad. What is going on in Turkey and what is Erdogan’s endgame?
Adina Kutnicki: In answer to the all important question of Turkey, its position as a so called “moderate” Muslim nation and its relationship to Israel, a brief backgrounder is in order. Turkey has enjoyed a “pet” relationship within the west, ever since its membership in NATO began in 1952. And, while the honeymoon lasted a little over 50 years, not too long after Prime Minister Recep Erdogan took over the helm, in March 2003, as Turkey’s 25th PM, the government’s Islamist agenda (from a secular leaning/tolerant nation) reared its head. Their volte face was not done in rapid moves, but akin to the precepts of Stealth Jihad – incrementally, phase by phase.
It is essential to acknowledge that PM Erdogan is a devoted and dedicated leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, as elucidated at Aina.org. He is also President Obama’s BFF, and this is no secret. Indeed, it is more than instructive to view their relationship in global terms, particularly since the rise of Islamism throughout Turkey merges with its entrenchment within Washington’s corridors.
“Hamas is a terrorist group in search of a home. Uprooted by the Syrian civil war, and shaken by the Egyptian coup, the Hamas leadership has taken temporary shelter in Qatar, but that tiny emirate is showing every sign that they want the Islamist radicals to move on. So where would a radical Islamist terrorist group dedicated to the eradication of the State of Israel and whose charter endorses the crudest anti-Semitism turn? Perhaps to Turkey, America’s NATO ally and a country whose leader President Obama identified as one of his top personal foreign friends.”
According to Hürriyet Daily News:
“The prime ministry in Ankara was the venue for a meeting between the head of Hamas’ political bureau, Khaled Mashaal, and Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan today. The meeting, which started at 7 p.m. and lasted for three hours, was closed to the press. Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, National Intelligence Agency (MİT) chief Hakan Fidan, Deputy Undersecretary for the Prime Minister’s Office İbrahim Kalın and advisor Sefer Turan were also present at the meeting, Anadolu Agency reported. The meeting between Mashaal and Erdoğan came around four months after their latest meeting. It came at a time when rumors suggest that Mashaal, currently in exile in Qatar, is searching for another place to live.”
As such, a perfect storm. A union for Allah….the rest can be found here.
THAT being established, it is intrinsic for readers to square the circle, so to speak. Besides, much of the backbreaking labor has already been done by this investigative journalist. By the way, this “squaring” is not akin to an impossibly hard geometrical problem set, but it does require the reader’s rapt attention.
FIRST and foremost, Americans (westerners at large) cannot afford to think of the Turkish/ISIS nexus (and all other related Islamic disasters) as far away issues endemic to another part of the world. Dangerous illusion and delusion.
IN reality, yesterday’s commentary couldn’t be more prescient, as it places an ISIS training camp within 8 miles of the U.S. border: Texans, an ISIS hyper terror alert is being issued!
INDEED, it is absolutely the case that Turkey and their ISIS/Brotherhood relations are gunning for America and Israel. In fact, HUSSEIN Obama lends them his shield!
BUT let’s not forget about the fact that brothers-in-arms do each other favors, and herein underlies the aforementioned passports:
An Egyptian intelligence official who asked not to be named told WND his country delivered a report to the U.S. documenting the astonishing claim.
The official further charged that Istanbul is serving as the “headquarters” for ISIS planning.
“Turkey continues to allow free passage to Iraq and Syria to IS fighters,” the official added.
If the Turkish passport charge is true, it would present a worldwide ISIS travel threat.
Already, there have been major passport concerns regarding ISIS and its sympathizers.
Earlier this month, a French senate report showed about 47 percent of European jihadists known to have traveled to ISIS-held territory hold French passports.
The free WND special report “ISIS Rising,” by Middle East expert and former Department of Defense analyst Michael Maloof, will answer your questions about the jihadist army threatening the West.
Scores of British citizens are also known to have joined ISIS. Last month, nine British medical students reportedly travel`ed to Syria to work in hospitals in areas held by ISIS.
In a move that clearly is part of the terrorist group’s symbolic creation of a caliphate, ISIS militants themselves reportedly started issuing their own international ISIS passports.
There are concerns ISIS plans to expand beyond the Middle East to Europe.
In February, WND reported documents released by ISIS supporters and propagandists revealed ISIS is planning to use Libya as a “gateway” to Europe.
The documents, obtained by the Quilliam Foundation, a Britain-based think tank that focuses on counter-extremism, raised the possibility of storming southern European cities to cause “pandemonium” or closing international shipping lines in the Mediterranean Sea.
The purported ISIS documents, obtained and reviewed by WND, received widespread news coverage.
However, some of the more sensational possibilities described within the pages were largely overlooked.
The documents indicate ISIS views Libya as not just fertile ground for a headquarters but as a staging base to infiltrate Europe by boat along with the hundreds of migrants who daily attempt to flee to Italy.
One ISIS document recognized Libya has a “long coastline” that “looks upon the southern Crusader states, which can be reached with ease by even a rudimentary boat.”
The document notes “the number of ‘illegal immigration’ trips from this coast is massive, estimated to be as high as 500 people a day, as a low estimate.”
It states that “according to many [of these immigrants], it is easily possible to pass through Maritime Security Checkpoints and arrive in [European] cities.”
“If this was even partially exploited and developed strategically, pandemonium could be wrought in the southern Europe. It is even possible that there could be a closure of shipping lines because of the targeting of Crusader ships and tankers.”
The Quillium Foundation warns: “Therefore, the opportunities that lie in the exploitation of human trafficking rings make Libya unparalleled as a launching platform for attacking European states and shipping lines.”
The ISIS documents extensively discuss what they claim are massive caches of light, medium and heavy munitions in Libya. Jihadists are urged to make their way to Libya to help expand the caliphate.
“Not only will pressure on the land of the Caliphate in ash-Sham be relieved, but the territories of the Caliphate in ash-Sham, Iraq and Hijaz will be linked with those of their brothers in Libya and the Islamic Maghreb and the defeat of all regimes and tyrants in their way will be enabled.”…
AS to the Libyan connection, and ISIS’s plan to flood Europe with “refugees”, well, this aspect was completely explored at this site. Its basis can be found here.
MOREOVER, ad infinitum, this investigative journalist connected the dots between HUSSEIN Obama’s illegal war in Libya and its blowback, its knock-on effects, as a springboard to all the upheavals in the Mid East, Africa and beyond. Hail, to the Pyromaniac-in-Chief! Chief bastard.
INHERENTLY, “squaring the circle” requires recognition of the following routes: HUSSEIN Obama’s (purposeful) Mid East fires; Turkey, as part and parcel of the Muslim Brotherhood; the Brotherhood Mafia’s birth of al-Qaeda in Iraq; and its renaming to ISIS aka ISIL! Head spinning.
AS oft-mentioned, Islamist groups are akin to tentacled hydras, and this is hardly an overblown assessment. Even so, aside from centuries-long fighting over hegemony, the fact remains that the west – with Israel and America atop the spear – is in the cross hairs of Sunni and Shia jihadists. Never forget this.
SO, doesn’t it make infinite sense that Erdogan’s Brotherhood would outfit ISIS, its spawn, with whatever assistance is needed, including passports and then some?
AT the very least, if Turkish Sunni Islamists and their ISIS/Brotherhood offshoots (Shia Islamists alike) “allow” westerners to survive, the following pictorial is highly accurate, sans patriots drawing an American “line in the sand” vis-a-vis Islam’s barbarians and the west’s appeasing leaders!
CONSIDER yourselves warned…
