Turkish Coup Second Guessing Begins

 

We will hear any number of theories about the “failed coup” in Turkey. Due to any number of uninteresting and technical points such as why was internet left running and why were not more of group ‘a’ through ‘z’ not neutralized at the onset and others and the reasons why it failed or if it was an Erdogan run rouse to allow him to remove even more opposition, the realities are the same. Anybody known to be at all important in any Mustafa Kemal Ataturk associated group would do well to become invisible and leave Turkey by any means necessary. Recep Tayyip Erdogan will use this coup as his license to remove all opposition especially from the upper officer class making his position safe for the foreseeable future. How far he might take things will depend on how assured he is that he holds absolute majority. Erdogan made sure of that with a second election after invalidating one where he would have required a coalition and thus not absolute power. Now Erdogan can use this coup in order to cement all power in the President, change the Constitution so as to prevent any further coup attempts such that the sitting President must be voted down by a majority of the people in an election where he runs unopposed and as long as he wins over any negative votes, the election would be Erdogan or full elections, then he would remain and no elections would be required. As Erdogan is supported by the Muslim Brotherhood he would easily win such a vote by such an amount he would appear to be their savior. He could even declare himself Caliph and by doing so challenge al-Baghdadi of the Islamic State as in the end there can be only one Caliph, surprise, surprise.

 

We cannot think of any means by which Erdogan could extend his clearing of the senior and mid-level officer corps and possibly even the non-commissioned officer corps of anybody not known to be somebody he knows is reliable thus permitting him at any future point using the military to enforce his views. Say Erdogan was to lose an election. With his current power he could easily claim it to be another insurrection just like the coup and claim deep seated voter manipulation and other irregularities and then have another election six months later after a similar removal of key opponents and viola, a reelected Erdogan. The real question is what can we expect in the coming days and weeks.

 

The elimination of any and all coup plotters is obvious and even if this was crafted by Erdogan and the Muslim Brotherhood, there would still be those officers who willingly signed on to the initial plan and who were betrayed. They will pay dearly. Some of the soldiers who may have simply been obeying the orders of higher ranking officers will also be made an example of. The critical question will be how many media types; bloggers and other civilians from within and outside of the government will face punishment. Bear in mind, for most punishment will be execution or life in prison with few getting lesser punishments. Being charged with being on the wrong side of things will be really, really bad as torture for confessions and other names will likely be part of the investigatory methodology. I would not like to be a blogger within Turkey right now as even my small slights against Erdogan would be sufficient and my support of Israel would be sufficient for suspicions, it may be that deep reaching.

 

Turkey was originally steered away from Islam and more to a secular democratic state with equality by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, as he saw that as the only path to modernity. Any hope whatsoever of Turkey returning to a true democratic society, with equal rights, what Turkey had been since Ataturk gave her their Constitution, is now lost possibly forever. If there is to be hope for Turkey it now rests with Islam having a reformation, something many Quranic scholars and others who study Islam and the Middle East believe is next to impossible. As the situation now exists, Erdogan will be placing Turkey on the express to Sharia. Once Sharia has been installed in a society elections are meaningless as the old Stalin definition of how to hold elections takes over where it does not matter who votes and for what but matters who counts those votes. Elections in Sharia states, if any hold them; can announce their results three weeks before the people go to the polls to vote. Candidates running against strict Islam will be duly watched and scrutiny in such states almost always leads to prison and death or worse, and there is worse.

 

Anybody who might look to recent events in Egypt and point out that the Muslim Brotherhood President Morsi was overthrown and President Sisi, a brave man who we can only hopes succeeds in his efforts to bring a reformation to Islam allowing it to coexist with other religions and forms of governance, replaced him after a second election in less than a year are hoping against hope. Erdogan has been in power since the early 2000’s and has steadily taken Turkey to the dark side and Sharia. One might ask if I have something against Sharia and the answer is only that it enslaves a population removing all need or ability to question the government as the government is religiously installed by the will of Allah thus questioning the chosen leadership is punishable as is apostasy, death. There is no personal freedom and the Quran becomes the only book to study and the Quran and Hadiths are the beginning and end-all of all knowledge. Any study outside of these requires the approval of an Imam and then can only be pursued so as to serve Allah. Perhaps this is what stirred Winston Churchill to write his scathing commentary on Islam in which he said the following; (The below-quoted passage did appear in The River War when it was first published as a two-volume set in 1899, but the selection was removed when the book was condensed into one volume and republished in 1902.):

Churchill gated stride impugning the morning about to tackle the world and all its problems

 

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or.

 

A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

 

Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.

 

We can only hope and pray that such does not befall Turkey as it has modern cities and a well developed intelligent urban communities. The rural areas of Turkey are less developed and in some locations literally still living as they had hundreds of years past. It is in these rural areas where Islam rules their everyday activities and where Sharia is not an imposition, it is their way. Turkey has a population fairly balanced between these two societies with a slight edge towards the urban communities. The difficulty extends from the strong minority of urban citizens who are first generation and remain firmly attached to their Islamic roots. Had Turkey not had the rise of Erdogan and the regimentation and collective awakening brought on by concerted efforts by the Muslim Brotherhood, within the coming century Turkey would have crossed the threshold never to turn back and easily merged with the developed world. This may still come to fruition as the urban population continues to gain and with time perhaps a majority will find an Islamically acceptable leader who still believes firmly in Islam but, like President Sisi of Egypt, desires not to have Turkey pose a direct threat to the non-Islamic world but rather join and forge a new and more acceptive Islam. As things in Islam now stand there can be only one of three outcomes; Islam is defeated and expunged from the face of the earth, Islam conquers all the nations forming a world Caliphate which becomes Allah only knows, or Islam goes through a reformation and declares the Mecca Quranic writings as superseding the Medina Quranic writings (click for a brief explanation of the differences and reasons with links provided by other readers in the comments). Odd as it may seem, that is all that is required for Islam to become as any other religion preaching acceptance and coexistence. The sticking point is that at some point, many claim stated by Mohammad just before he died while others claim this was added at a later date to cement Islam as a religion of conquest, is one of the final Surah states that the Medina verses, the later verses, supersede the Mecca verses, the earlier verses. As with all too many things, time will tell and we can only hope our prayers are favorably received by Hashem.

Yesterday’s Panic Leads to Today’s Rant

 

We ended yesterday’s article with a word stretched out as it is sung in a song we love and that word will be the determining factor on whether the Western World had a future, A-m-e-r-i-c-a. Tuesday, November 8, 2016, will determine who will be the leader of the developed world or just another wilted, limp, ineffectual sack of flesh making noise and no ability to lead anybody anywhere, and the world needs a leader and fast. The next American President faces a world in deep crisis and most of the people do not even realize there is a world outside their daily routine. That has been the problem in the last two elections where novelty and personality outweighed abilities and solid knowledge of the world and an idea of the weighty problems which have even worsened drastically in the past months and it continues to gain momentum making the job of slowing the direction to be a sufficient challenge, but turning it around into a positive direction will require dedication and a monumental effort. Within a year and a half by mid-2018 Iran will have announced and tested a nuclear weapon. That might be the turning point in the Middle East and soon spread through North Africa as the Arab Muslim World in MENA will have possibly made the greatest alteration in the history of Islam and the vast majority of Sunnis will decide that the strong horse is Iran and they will overthrow leaders who refuse to fall into the sphere with Iran as their leader. Should such a transformation take place, then we will definitely be facing a terrible war coming. Western Europe may have already surrendered without firing a shot and Eastern Europe will face the hardest years of turmoil as Islamic infiltrators will try to raise a fifth column working through subduction rather than over use of force of arms. Once Iran has demonstrated their nuclear weapons capability, their terror forces will be unrestrained with a nuclear umbrella always hanging over the free world’s leaders making their choices all the more difficult and action appear twice as challenging. Fighting a war on your own lands using only police forces is frighteningly inefficient. The people quake fearing the terrorism and bristling as each new restriction is applied in attempts to alter the field of play in the police’s favor. Police salaries have more than doubled and still finding recruits is becoming more difficult. The Eastern Europeans start to fear that they might need to seek shelter under the heavy arm of Putin’s Russia. What had been a dreaded threat looming for years after a resurgent Russia awoke, now appears as a shining knight, a potential savior. Why would anybody want to lead America with a world this messed up, but the candidates hardly know anything outside the two coasts and maybe Chicago, St Louis, Cleveland and Dallas/Fort Worth; but beyond the borders, they think they have enough problems at home, they are not seeking any new ones from the world.

 

Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton

Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton

 

That is the problem, which of the two realistic candidates, Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, is at all likely to even realize there is a wider world outside of the economy and holding the line on the southern border, which may be the smartest thing they do except the terrorists are being brought into America as fast as President Obama and his silent team can land them in the deep still of the night as well as in broad daylight. Sometimes a media too lax to dig for the truth and who wait for orders from editors and happily grasping any morsel they are sold by White House story tellers like Ben Rhodes, no wonder the American public has no idea the world is burning. The candidates will mostly snipe about the other and all we will hear is about every sour deal Trump has ever had a part in and they are likely plenty to choose from and in return we will hear about the meaning of is, is and Benghazi, e-mails, Whitewater, the Clinton Foundation and every smarmy thing the Clintons have ever had their blood-soaked hands on. Get ready for a roller-coaster ride where only half the track actually exists and the pitfalls are in every strut and brace with an operator who’s an untrained person with little if anything that qualifies them to be leader of the free world. Hillary Clinton knows something about foreign affairs but is a total incompetent as she proved while pretending to be Secretary of State and as President she would simply be playing at the office enjoying the payoff for her supporting Bill through thick and thin and sometimes so sheer as to be threadbare. Donald Trump knows how to deliver an opening ceremony speech and glad-hand and walk with others nodding knowingly while knowing nothing but still insisting he is the smartest man in the room. Where his ability to delegate is admirable, but people who have worked on things with ‘The Donald’ claim he likes to micromanage things and often makes things far more complicated and difficult. Neither candidate is anywhere near the best their party had to offer but they are what the Americans backed and that is what we are stuck with throughout the rest of the world. If you are feeling that you have been through years and Presidential terms of office where the President seemed to be working against the better interests and fear it is about to happen again, well, feel better as that is unlikely. The worst case scenario is there will be an incompetent in the White House whose husband attempts to help and guide her on foreign policy decisions, that would be an improvement, but she is unlikely to take anyone’s advice as she believes she is all-knowing. The other choice, ‘The Donald,’ might actually choose competent advisors and place good people in the cabinet and if he should actually allow them to lead and follow their prescriptions, that would be a hopeful scenario and if his position adjustments on the Middle East, Israel particularly, after choosing Jason Greenblatt and David Friedman as his Israel and Middle East Advisors is any sign, then Donald Trump has shown signs of sufficient maturity to take advice on things he is clueless. Now we just need to hope he believes himself to be clueless about almost everything it takes at being a great President as that will allow him to listen and reason things out from the different opinions he receives from people who are actually knowledgeable. We are not endorsing either candidate as we may still write in for Allen West and we would gladly endorse Lt. Col. West.

Shall we move on to the rest of the world? As we have discussed the European Union (EU) appears to be planning on merging with the greater Muslim world and according to their own releases which we discussed in our article referencing the release titled The European Union Actually Planning Empire the EU not only plans on expanding its borders and control, or at least sharing the control in some manner, with the nations of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) and on to central Asia and Central Africa so as to include all of the main body of Islam, spreading and advancing the joint economic conditions sharing technologies and using resources jointly while sharing in religious practices and cultural activities and celebrations. From the way it is weakly worded one could deduce that the EU would facilitate Islamic takeover of Europe religiously but with the proviso that there be no forcing Islam on those worshiping other faiths or none at all. This proviso is not likely to last more than a few moments before the pressures start to appear and then build and eventually we all know how this will end, we just cannot be sure as to how long. Our guess is eighteen months, but we have been known to be a bit optimistic. The culture would also tend not to remain very European for long and the only defense the Europeans would be able to hide behind would be limiting the movement of peoples from MENA into Europe and vice-versa. Still, the EU is based on free movement and it would not take very long before the MENA populations began moving into EU central nations for the benefits. The employment, benefits, healthcare, free schooling, minimum income and the plethora of other benefits which are largely financial and would offer these people wealth beyond their wildest dreams in exchange for nothing would attract tens to hundreds of thousands. The opportunities for disaster in the EU plan, well, let us just say it is fraught with opportunities for disasters for the current heart of the EU. It is not like the EU is not experiencing any difficulties such as the entire British Isles voting in favor of the Brexit referendum recently ending the near stranglehold the EU had on almost every major producing nation in Europe. Now the second greatest economic engine after Germany has started the required steps for exiting the EU. What makes the Brexit all the easier was the fact that the British retained their currency, the Pound Sterling. Britain is the only nation of the EU intelligent enough not to surrender their own currency and rely solely on the Euro. So far the worst predictions for Britain are coming true and we would, if we knew anything about investments, advise our investor, if we had one, to invest heavily in the pound waiting another eighteen days and then buy Pounds and wait for their recovery which should be scary great. Remember, we are not investment counselors and thus this is not investment advice unless it works, then we would like 5% thank you.

 

Meanwhile, the EU is very likely moving towards their destruction which will be realized when Islam finally decides that any agreement made really does not apply to limit the spread of Islam as that is demanded by Allah and that trumps the EU. This if backed by a Shiite thermos-nuclear stockpile of warheads and the ballistic and ICBMs (Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile), whose range is anywhere on planet Earth, with which to deliver said warheads as was demonstrated with the EMP attack on North America presented to a joint committee of Congress in a simulation, easily displaying how the grid would be destroyed with almost all the main and secondary transformers in the United States and Canada obliterated. They would not even need to do something that drastic as the Iranians could simply launch an ICBM which flies across the lands of the North American continent landing in the opposite ocean with a three ton dummy warhead which the Iranians permitted the United States to recover and also set off a thermonuclear device about the same size making delivery of such no longer a debatable issue and instead into solid fact. Add the productive capacity of the EU to the Mullahs of Iran’s dream of world conquest and Islam’s drive to defeat the Sunni Islamic world and place Shiite Islam as the new master of Islam and the leading candidate for the new Caliph and the leaders of Islam taking over the Saudi and Kuwaiti oil fields solidifying the world’s oil supply, or at least 65% of the world’s oil, under Shia control meaning that there will very likely be another oil embargo making gas a luxury once again in the United States as they require more than can be domestically produced even after adding the rest of the still free world’s oil supplies.

 

Should the EU try anything drastic before the new President, then it little matters who wins the election for President. As such is next to impossible for them to affect the United States election but the the EU will heavily depend on who wins the United States Presidential elections. Hillary Clinton claims she will continue the President Obama disastrous withdrawal from the world. She will likely initially do exactly what President Obama would pursue leaving the EU to its own devices as Hillary Clinton simply walks away from anything allowing for the world to continue degenerating even before Iran manufactures their broad front terror war. These wars initially and by themselves will not appear to be anything, but in reality they will be nation after nation being subsumed inexorably by the Iranian leadership leaving the surrender of the EU to be the final nail in that coffin. Donald Trump might not surrender as readily but he too will be also sacrificing one nation after another as well. This will be the aftermath of the calculus performed by Iran in arranging for them to develop nuclear weapons in secret right under a blind world’s eyes which by treaty will be seeking to change the very nature of war. Needless to point out that warfare will remain a contest between ideologies for dominance of one over the other in the realm of ideas and principles. This will be the war being fought by alternative means of which the surrender of the EU gifting all of Europe with the exception of Britain to Islam while the United States honors its commitment to trust and not even bother to verify that Iran is obeying their side of the treaty. It will become obvious that Iran is not living within the treaty confines and is instead gearing up for a long war of attrition. Once again the war will appear as have the past two world wars with Britain holding the line at the English Channel and Russia double-crossed holding the eastern front against Iran who will hold much of the world’s oil reserves, the one weakness which finished off Hitler will not be even an inconvenience for the Mad Mullahs and the Aryan march to impose the perfect society will pick right up where it rested at its apex holding the continent of Europe but this time allied with the nations of MENA making for an even stronger and more dangerous front against the world order.

 

All of this will be happening because of and under the nuclear umbrella of Iran made possible, and even inevitable, by the Iran Deal whose consequences we attempted to approach in our article What is Already Resulting From the Iran Deal? Further, one can read one of the versions of the Iran Deal as each nation apparently had their own translation under which they were operating, and we found the Russia interpretation likely to be the closest to the Iranian interpretation which has never been released. The Russian version of the Iran Nuclear Agreement 7/14/2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action is worth suffering through as it is how Iran likely sees the agreement. If we had to point to the greatest failing of the whole idea behind President Obama and his administration it would be the understanding that words have meaning and that meaning gives words the power to move mountains as if they were mole hills and turn mole hills into mountains. We are not speaking of rhetoric as that was one place President Obama soared, he could paint such pictures using hundreds of words that when subsequently parsed were found to have said absolutely nothing but they sure excited the useful idiots to whom sounding great is being great, no accomplishments necessary. This was most evident when President Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize because of his rhetoric during the first campaign and the immediate aftermath. Shakespeare defined President Obama to a fine point with his phrase found in Macbeth Act 5, scene 5, 19–28 with which we shall close today’s article.

 

To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Talking Turkey

 

Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu surrendered once again to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and this time did so with his eyes wide open and not after being hoodwinked by United States President Barack Obama inviting him onto Air Force One where he already had Erdogan on the phone and handed the call to Netanyahu with likely the one word demand, “Apologize!” The demand was worded with a stern or else look on the American President’s face and a cold lifeless steely glare in his eyes. This time Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu not only gave another apology but sweetened the apology with twenty million dollars of surrender money to be paid to the families of the terrorists of the Mavi Marmara. There was the excuse of sending the gas pipeline through Turkey where it can be sent on to Europe. One can only guess how badly that will work out or how many times the pipeline will be cut and/or exploded very much like the gas line in the Sinai and of course every time it is blown to smithereens, Israel will rebuild it for free and resume gas deliveries which will likely have ten percent skimmed off the top for domestic use, once again free as the price of doing business. You lie with dogs you awake with fleas and possibly ear mites and other wonderful gifts. One can only wonder how we came by Erdogan. Perhaps the picture below will assist in the story which can be read here.

What is Israel going to say now about paying the survivors of terrorists, do as I say, not as I do? The moral high ground is lost. Some might ask what will the next deal include, naming a sports stadium after them or just a few roads and highways as is the practice of the Palestinian Authority. What does Israel gain by this kowtowing? We could not get appliances made elsewhere? As far as trade is concerned, anything we import from Turkey we could have built a factory here at home to build them or built one in Greece and likely made them for less and the Greek government would love the added work for Greeks facing horrific economic times. Why woe a terror master when we are trying to make friends with that particular terror master’s sworn enemies. Perhaps President Erdogan has promised to provide an avenue for purchasing Iranian pistachios as doing so directly is next to impossible, fortunately. Well, if we are going this far to trade with Turkey why not Iran as well? Is that the point where we finally find some principled stance and if so why?

 

This deal was blasted by all sides both within and outside the coalition. Thus far it has not destroyed the coalition but it does beg the question what else have we not been told? Yes, we did agree to permit Turkey to build projects in Gaza for including but not necessarily limited to a power generating station, a desalinization plant, a Hospital and who knows exactly what else. Turkey will want to rebuild the housing apartment structures destroyed in the past two wars. When doing so they will provide the Ace in the hole of effective human shields. There will be little possibility that Israel will be capable of firing back at rocket sites with Turkish workers working right beside them. Any hope for a military strike by the IDF will be neutralized unless Israel is willing to risk a military confrontation with Turkey. Turkey is a NATO member and by treaty anyone attacking a NATO member risks fighting the entirety of NATO which includes, Germany, France, Britain and most of all the United States. Does anybody believe that President Obama, and perhaps Hillary Clinton after him, would have even a single quam about answering a call from Turkey for protection from Israeli attacks on their personnel? We need remember that all of the Israeli fighters have friend or foe circuitry which prevents their shooting any friendly aircraft, a code easily provided the Turkish fighter aircraft making them invulnerable to the Israeli F15, F16 and even F4 Phantom firing computers making most of the Israeli Air Force aircraft inoperable against any NATO aircraft. That would really lead to a very bad day for Israeli Pilots and their Prime Minister and coalition government. Such a catastrophe would be wholly impossible for any Prime Minister to survive and one could only hope that the Likud Party could read the writing on the walls.

 

Further, once allowing Turkish workers into Gaza under the guise of building hospitals, schools, housing, a power plant or two, salinization plants and other accommodations, what would there be to prevent their assisting with tunnel constructions, bunkers, ammunition stores, new rockets with guidance software and systems? Will the inspectors be capable of telling if the software boards and systems apparently intertwined within the desalinization systems belong within or are guidance hardware and firmware with software loaded being disguised guidance systems to make rockets into guided missiles? Of course they would be hard pressed to tell and the final item necessary to make them work is a camera system and map such that they could use a simple inertial guidance checked through GPS and target identification with a simple camera. All of that could be programmed into a cell telephone which could also triangulate its position using known cell towers. All this and more could be smuggled into Gaza along with terrorist masterminds pretending to be Turkish workers not to mention the ability for communication between Hamas leaders outside of Gaza with those within Gaza.

 

Once the precedent has been set with allowing Turkish workers to perform necessary repairs and upgrades to the utilities and other infrastructure then how does Israel prevent the next party offering to restore power or rebuild homes, build a subway system, highways, and eventually rebuild the international airport to receive more assemblies and other needful items which are so required that they cannot be sent by ship. Perhaps they will want to build a large and powerful telescope for the Astronomy coursework at the college or university they will build and provide the professors who will teach the class. Of course when explaining how to aim and focus this huge telescope they will be forced to utilize items visible during the day such as taller buildings in Tel Aviv if it does not stand outside line of sight. With an additional classroom lesson they could learn the adjustments one need make such that a mortar round could be placed where the telescope is targeting as well as corrections to settings to make the mortars far more accurate. With university professor’s offices and classrooms in the same building Israel would not be able of destroying the telescope using a large hammer but would need a very precise and accurate nail to drive.

 

These have been but some of what Turkey could do and as a NATO member state Israel would be required to treat lightly wherever these Turkish workers were located. Their round the clock presence at the worksites and sightseeing in off hours and days and sleeping in precisely chosen locations which by a miracle are directly adjacent rocket and missile provisions structures and workshops will negate any Israeli military interjections. Israel has given up much of the high ground when it comes to honoring and supporting the families of homicidal suicide bombers and other terrorists slain in the heat of battle and from there it is not much of a step to paying the salaries of those imprisoned in Israeli prisons. Additionally, Turkey, or should we say Erdogan and his band of enablers have corrupted the Supreme Court and rest of the high courts and the military leadership such that there is little if any opposition to Erdogan’s whims. Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been known to carry the water for the Muslim Brotherhood (Arabic: جماعة الاخوان المسلمين‎‎ gammāʿat al-ʾiḫwān) or simply al-Ikhwan, al-Qaeda through the al-Nusra Front, even the Islamic State, as Erdogan supports all who share his desires to rid himself of Syrian former dictator al-Assad, as well as Hamas. Adding to this confusion has been Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s history of having worked with Iran as well as Saudi Arabia and Egypt when the Muslim Brotherhood held sway even advising former Egyptian President Morsi that he was moving towards Sharia far too quickly, advice not heeded as Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood misjudged their people who were quite wary of relieving one dictator for another, this one religious and backed by the Muslim Brotherhood. Erdogan refuses to deal with Egyptian President Sisi demanding instead that the Muslim Brotherhood be returned their nation to run as they please, President Sisi has proven thus far immovable. Erdogan seems to flutter from one controversial relationship to the next without giving it a moment’s thought. He wears more hats than a circus clown and is reportedly treated as such even by those he has befriended. Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s life’s dream is to reestablish the Ottoman Empire and declare such the new Caliphate and himself as the Caliph himself. This dream would prove a nightmare for millions as Recep Tayyip Erdogan shows a complete lack of morals when pursuing any goal and nothing is beyond betrayal in this quest.

 

Perhaps in a moment of foolishness Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu believed he could trust President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and strike a deal which would prove lucrative in the future if not the present. Time will prove the validity of those ideas but the ideals sacrificed to form this deal were too many and too deep a cut into the Israeli heart. One need ask what is the final plan claimed to be at hand as the majority of Israelis know all too well that Mahmoud Abbas will not change his ideas nor his insatiable demands. He will continue to demand in Arabic his demand for the ancient lands of the Arabs to be returned to them. Abbas knows that the Jewish People have had a sizeable presence in Jerusalem seemingly since the beginning of time. So, knowing the Israelite claim covering five-thousand years to be valid he claims that his people who arrived in 637 to 666 A.D. actually have resided in these lands for the past nine-thousand years. He further claims they invented the proto-language Abbas calls the Palestinian-Canaanite language which they presumably invented the Palestinian-Canaanite language and alphabet centuries before the Israelites conquered the lands. As to erasing Israeli and Jewish history, this has been Mahmoud Abbas’s stock and trade. He wrote his doctoral thesis on a supposed relationship between Hitler and the Nazi elites and the Zionists which is all included in his presentations titled “The Other Side: the Secret Relationship Between Nazism and Zionism.” He presented the thesis at The Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Russian: Институт востоковедения Российской Академии Наук) which one may read about on WikipediA. The thesis is replete with references and quotes from sources since discredited but not before Mahmoud Abbas was warmly received and granted his Doctorate. Unfortunately for all within the areas directly and indirectly affected by this dreadful piece of Holocaust denial and pseudo-history, they are the poorer for having come in contact with it.

 

Abbas and Erdogan would make a great pair each supporting the other and exchanging specifically chosen lines consisting of double entendres mixed with outright lies. One could easily say Abbas and Erdogan deserve one another. Throw in an American President without a shred of decency worth mentioning; assuming such is even present on President Obama for the viewing, and you have the perfect set of people in place in order to offer up Israel in a demonic sacrifice filled with fire from nuclear weapons. Turkey might be a partner in just such a plan plotting right alongside them, they that are Iran and those with any plan, as long as it ends with Israel consumed in a nuclear fire. This would get Recep Tayyip Erdogan absolutely Joyous and President Obama possibly a second Nobel Prize, they would need a new award category, perhaps recognized the opportunity in this man but we all failed in realizing that promise, they could call it the almost realized the greatness expected of him award given to the individual who never realized that greatness or the total disappointment award, the Nobel Dunce Cap Award. The winner sits in a chair facing the corner while giving their acceptance speech. The award would be given once every decade making it one of the more coveted awards that Nobel would give. Perhaps we could suggest some who would have won this award .The award given between 1935 and 1945 could have gone to British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain for taking every wrong turn and delivering the victories necessary to prolong Hitler’s opportunity to build up his forces. Other recipients might have been Adlai Ewing Stevenson II, Richard Milhous Nixon and a host of others who were thought to have great expectations of then fell miserably short. Sports would likely give some strong candidates as there is many a college star whose sail lost all its wind upon entering the major leagues. Perhaps Prime Minister Netanyahu is also vying for such an award. He would get stiff competition from President Obama but a victory by either would require they credit the assistance from the other.
