Max von Oppenheim (above), of the Jewish banking family, had a plan to incite religious violence in various Moslem countries. He described Islam as 'one of our most important weapons'. His idea was to use Jihadis to advance a certain agenda. Thus, spies were sent into Moslem countries, including Iraq, Afghanistan, Turkey and Iran. Mullahs were bribed with large sums of money to get them to support Jihad. Max von Oppenheim.

Its time for a coup to sweep away the traitor mafia shits

.
.
.
.
Turkey had coups in 1960, 1971 and 1980. The Cold War created tensions in Turkey and also as a frontline NATO member and from time to time, when the civilian politicians could not manage the state effectively the military stepped in to stabilize and protect the country from destabilization and fragmentation.
 
It is 36 years since the last coup, and a long time since the days of Turgut Ozal who built the post coup Turkey, into a modern progressive country again.

But we must be careful this time as Deonme mafia Erdogan has many mafia allies in the USA, Israel and Europe....given how they fawn over him and look the other way with his Cosa Nostra activities.

Ataturk was right in 1915, in 1920, in 1923 and in 1937 and he is STILL RIGHT ABOUT Turkey now in 2016. Erdogan through stealth and MIT attempts to undo Ataturks great legacy.

I said to my student in the classroom in 2006, be careful about this man, Bernard Lewis....since he will through his ideology and influence in Washington attempt to Balkanise the Middle East for Eretz Israel, and through the fifth column of Islamic fundamentalism. The student said to me that while there may be weak traitor leaders pretending to serve the country, the Turkish people are strong, and they will do whatever it takes to defend their country. 



Bernard Lewis the Jew super spy from London who coined the phrase clash of civilisation. Note the evil demonic curve like Jew features of a movie super villain from Spector.

Greater Kurdistan to be created and sponsored by the USA and Israel over the ashes of Turkey, Persia, IRAQ and SYRIA.
 
The Bernard Lewis plan of 1975...and the Arc of Crisis, using the fifth column of Islamic fundamentalism.....from the Carter administration onwards.
1. Over throw of the pro-American Shah.1979
2. Backing of the Islamic fundamentalists Afghan Mujaheddin 1979.
3. The Muslim Brotherhood Coup in Egypt in 1981.
4. The Muslim Brotherhood coup in Syria in 1982.
 
The Final phase, the creation of Eretz Israel from a balkanised destroyed Middle East.

Is Turkey's Military About to Intervene to Save the Country From Erdogan?

Traditonally the military has been the guardian of the country's secular progressive modernist democracy


 

The situation in Turkey keeps getting worse. Private debt is out of control, the tourism sector is in free-fall and the decline in the currency has impacted every citizen’s buying power. Because of increasing pressures on the central bank and political storms, Turkey's annual growth rate has already slowed.
.

The 2013 Gezi protests and corruption charges against the government, the 2014 presidential election and two general elections in 2015 have put the Turkish economy under stress. Turkey's annual growth rate, which for 50 years had averaged 4.5%, remained at an average 3% in the past four years. Economists are warning that delays in structural reforms and Erdogan's economic views could push the growth rate even lower, triggering a crisis.



Kamil Yilmaz, a professor of economics at Koc University, says«Turkey has slowed down because it could not implement structural reforms. Because of the political developments of the past three years, investments have all but come to a halt. Further slowing of the economy is inevitable under these conditions».
.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan seems to be out of control. He is cracking down on opposition, imprisoning opponents and seizing media outlets. Not once the Turkish leader has threatened to dissolve the constitutional court. It is taking place at the time the security problems have deteriorated amidst a wave of terrorism.
. 
The events make the Turkish military emerge on political landscape again after many years of marginalization during «Sultan» Erdogan’s rule. The divisions between the Turkish military and Erdogan have a long history, but today it is amplified by tumultuous events in and outside the country. For instance, the plans to create a buffer zone in Northern Syria and send the Turkish troops to Syria and Iraq are opposed by military brass.
.
It makes spring to mind the decision of Egyptian military to take the reins in the country when US President Obama supported the takeover of Egypt by the Muslim Brotherhood. The military challenged the United States and took power to prevent the worst from happening. In the 1990s the military saved Algeria from collapse.
.
The current President of Turkey has never trusted the military viewing it as a challenge to his insatiable imperial ambitions. Despite that, the outbreak of war in Syria and the ongoing operations against the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in the southeastern part of the country make the President reconcile with the role of the military re-emerging as an influential force.
.
Michael Rubin, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute and a former Pentagon official, predicts an imminent military coup in Turkey. According to the expert, «Turks – and the Turkish military – increasingly recognize that Erdogan is taking Turkey to the precipice». Rubin believes that «he [Erdogan] has taken Turkey down a path in which there is no chance of victory and a high chance of de facto partition». According to him, «If the Turkish military moves to oust Erdogan and place his inner circle behind bars, could they get away with it? In the realm of analysis rather than advocacy, the answer is yes». Rubin writes, it is doubtful that the Obama administration would do more than castigate any coup leaders, especially if they immediately laid out a clear path to the restoration of democracy. Neither Turkey nor Greece lost their NATO membership after coups.
.
The Turkish military has long seen itself as the «guardian of Turkish democracy», which it defines as the staunchly secular state created by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of the modern Turkish republic. It directly intervened three times (1960, 1971 and 1980) in Turkish politics. In 1997 the military carried out what some scholars describe as a «postmodern coup». Back then the military issued a series of «recommendations», which the government had no choice but to accept.
.
The Ergenekon trials, a series of high-profile court hearings, took place in 2008-2011. 275 people, including military officers, journalists and opposition lawmakers, all alleged members of Ergenekon, a supposed secularist clandestine organization, were accused of plotting against the Turkish government. The trials resulted in lengthy prison sentences for the majority of the accused. In 2010 Turkish police arrested hundreds of current and former military officials accused of plotting to overthrow Mr Erdogan’s government. Hundreds were sent to jail, but the cases eventually crumbled.
.
The «palace coup – 2016» took place just a few days ago. After losing a power struggle with Mr Erdogan, Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu decided to step down after an extraordinary party meeting on May 22 and not run for the office again. Critics of Mr Erdogan called it a «palace coup» that would let the president consolidate power.
.
«The restoration of the Turkish army’s influence has resurrected concerns all the way up to the presidential palace that generals might try to topple Mr Erdogan, a polarizing figure whose extensive crackdown on domestic dissent has triggered alarm in Western capitals, according to people familiar with the matter», writes Dion Nissenbaum, a US national security expert based in Washington, in his article published by The Wall Street Journal.
.
US military and diplomatic officials credit Turkey’s top general, Hulusi Akar, with boosting the military’s influence. After announcing his decision to step aside following the power struggle with Mr Erdogan, former Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu met with Mr Akar at Turkey’s military headquarters. «One of the main reasons that Turkey looks to the future with confidence in a democratic system, despite lots of regions in crisis around it, is the Turkish General Staff», Mr Davutoglu said«Whether it is the issue of terrorism within our borders or instabilities emerging out of Syria and Iraq, Turkish Armed Forces represented our country’s power and might».
.
Was it accidental that the outgoing Prime Minister sang praises to the military and extolled democracy?
.
Turkey is at a crossroads. The time is right for changes. One way or another the movement down the slippery slope should be stopped. Turkish people have a very simple choice: either to replace insanity with intelligence and wisdom on the way to peace and prosperity, or continue on the present downward course under the smoldering ashes of civil war and destruction. With Mr Erdogan in power the country seems to have no future.

Deonme Erdogan smuggling ISIS stolen oil from Syria and Iraq.

.
.
.
.
Actually its an USA clandestine concept that in war you can commit crime to fund your war effort....CIA in Vietnam smuggling opium into Thailand from the Golden Triangle via private planes...'Air-America'...and then into the streets of Europe and the USA.

Iran Contra

ISIS oil.

The idea that managing contraband, racketeering and smuggling is normal and acceptable.....during war, and even after war.

Time to Resign? Evidence Mounts of Erdogan's Involvement in ISIS Oil Smuggling

And Russia Insider

Erdogan is an international outlaw, He’s supporting ISIS, US proxy foot soldiers in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere, directly involved in their oil smuggling, refining and sales worth hundreds of millions of dollars on the black market.

America and other Western  nations are well aware of what’s going on, doing nothing to stop it, aiding it by inaction and/or direct support – Russia alone intervening by bombing ISIS’ truck pipeline, transporting oil along with its facilities in Syria, Mowaffak al Rubaie is a former Iraqi Governing Council member/national security advisor. Interviewed by RT International, he explained “(i)n the last eight months (alone), ISIS (sold) $800 million dollars worth of (stolen) oil on the black market of Turkey.”
“This is Iraqi oil and Syrian oil, carried by trucks from Iraq, from Syria through the borders to Turkey and sold (at) less than 50 percent of the international oil price.”
“Now this either gets consumed inside, the crude refined on Turkish territory by the Turkish refineries, and sold in the Turkish market or it goes to Jihan and then in the pipelines from Jihan to the Mediterranean and sold to the international market.”
“Money and dollars generated by selling Iraqi and Syrian oil on the Turkish black market is like the oxygen supply to ISIS and it’s operation. Once you cut the oxygen then ISIS will suffocate.”
Al Rubaie stressed “no shadow of  a doubt” about Turkey’s full knowledge and involvement in what’s ongoing. Responsibility goes right to the top. Reports suggest that Erdogan’s son, Bilal, is actively engaged in illegal smuggling, selling and profiting from stolen Syrian and Iraqi oil, facilitated by Turkey’s security apparatus and intelligence.
.

Erdogan’s regime treats wounded ISIS terrorists in Turkish hospitals in border areas and Istanbul. Daesh recruits are trained in Turkey by CIA operatives and US special forces. They move freely cross-border to and from Syria and Iraq.
.
Al Rubaie said “no terrorist organization…can stand alone without a neighboring country helping it.” Complicit with Washington, Turkey is directly involved along with other NATO countries, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan and Israel.
.
Without this type backing, ISIS and other terrorist groups couldn’t exist. 
.
America bears full responsibility for creating them – complicit nations aiding its imperial enterprise.
.
Putin prioritizes crippling ISIS’ oil smuggling operations, destroying its ability to generate enormous revenues from black market  sales. None of this could go on without direct Erdogan regime involvement.
.
Russian pilots and drones observed and photographed a “living oil pipeline” – transporting vehicles moving as far as the eye can see and beyond the horizon, round-the-clock, heading for Turkey, returning empty to reload and head out again.
.
Since Russian air operations began targeting ISIS’ financial lifeline, over 1,000 oil transporting trucks were destroyed along with with depots and other facilities in Syria.
.
Assad’s Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem said “Turkey continues to maintain export and transportation of oil stolen in Iraq and Syria by ISIL militants. Then, the oil is transported to ports abroad.”
.
Sergey Lavrov explained high-level Turkish officials “carefully protect any information about their oil smuggling deals. (It’s) transported (in) the area where the Russian plane was shot down, and (where) the terrorist infrastructure, arms and munitions depots and control centers” are located.
.
Retired French General Dominique Trinquand accused Turkey of “either not fighting ISIL at all or very little, and does not interfere with different types of smuggling that takes place on its border, be it oil, phosphate, cotton or people.”
.
On Saturday, Turkish police arrested Ankara Gendarmerie Regional Commander Major General Ibrahim Aydin, former Adana Gendarmerie Regional Commander Brigadier General Hamza Celepoglu and former Gendarmerie Criminal Laboratory Head Colonel Burhanettin Cihangiroglu on charges of treason and espionage – for revealing information about regime authorities transporting weapons cross-border to ISIS terrorists in Syria.
.
Charges relate to a January 2014 incident when they were involved in intercepting weapons-filled trucks belonging to Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MIT).
.
In May 2015, Turkish Cumhuriyet media published information about it, posting photos of MIT trucks being inspected by security officers.
.
Large amounts of heavy and other weapons were heading cross-border to Syria. The publication’s editor-in-chief and Ankara bureau chief now face treason and espionage charges for exposing regime criminality.

Its official, Russia accuses USA and Turkey of directly supporting ISIS

.
.
.
.
AND, of course President Putin is correct.

ISIS is a fifth column destabilization unit of several targeted countries, which act as a cover for the American colonial empire.

Rather like the Bashibazooks of the Turkish Ottoman empire military, who spear headed military operations, finding the opposition military, engaging them lightly, and then bringing in the regular Turkish army to engage them.

.....or European colonists who went to exotic faraway lands, did all manner of dirty deeds---stealing, rape, plunder, proselytizing, and when the grass skirted locals complained and retaliated...the European colonialists called in their military to protect them against the cruel 'savages.'
(All done by design pre planning and malice a fore thought)
 
ISIS is not good for Muslims...they kill Muslims in the most barbaric way, destroy Muslim national governments, destroy ancient historical sights, destroy mosques, steal resources and sell in the black market, peddle drugs, rape women, kill children, and much much more.... armed trained and funded by the USA and its dogs.

Putin Declares US, Turkey Guilty of Cooperating With Terrorists – 

By John Helmer

This post was originally published on this site This article originally appeared at Dances with Bears

Never before has the personal animosity of the heads of state of the United States and Turkey towards the President of Russia been so sharp and expressed so obviously. The consequences, too.
.
The following statements yesterday by President Vladimir Putin explain.
At 1400h of Thursday, November 26, 2015.
.
“I would like to remind you that it was the passive position of a number of countries, and often their direct collusion with terrorists that actually led to the rise of the terrible phenomenon known as the Islamic State. They not only cover up the terrorists, their illicit trafficking in oil, people, drugs, works of art and arms, but also benefit from it, making hundreds of millions, even billions of dollars.”
.

At 2000h of the same day.
.
“Those who apply double standards when dealing with terrorists, using them to achieve their own political aims and engaging in unlawful business with them, are playing with fire. History shows that sooner or later such actions will backfire against those who abet criminals.”
.
“Look, we informed our American partners in advance when our pilots were going into action and where, in what air corridors. The American side, which leads the coalition, to which Turkey is also a party, knew about the location and time of our operation. And this is precisely where we were hit.
.
The question is, why did we pass this information to the Americans? Either they are not in control of what their allies are doing or they hand out this information every which way without understanding the implications.
.
“We are ready to operate in a different format that would be acceptable for our partners. We are ready to work together with the US-led coalition. It goes without saying that incidents like the downing of a Russian jet and the death of Russian servicemen, a pilot and a marine trying to rescue his brothers in arms, are absolutely unacceptable. We assume that this won’t happen again. Otherwise, we don’t need such teamwork with anyone, with any coalition or any countries."
.
“If Turkey is destroying it, we don’t see any smoke or flames from burning oil. Again, we’re talking about amounts on an industrial scale. A plant would have to be built to destroy that much oil. None of that is really happening. If top level leaders in Turkey know nothing about this, then tell them now. I admit that there may be some elements of corruption or collusion. Let them figure it out. However, we have no doubt about this oil going straight to Turkey. We can see it from the air: fully laden trucks go there and come back empty. Then again, they leave terrorist-held Syria for Turkey fully loaded, and return empty. We see it every day.
“Regarding Turkey’s Air Force allegedly failing to recognise Russian aircraft, this is simply not possible! The aircraft have insignia that are clearly visible, indicating that they are Russian aircraft, not anything else. This is the first thing I wanted to say.
.
“Second, I’ve already said, and will say again: under our agreement with the United States, we have shared information on where our pilots will fly, at what flight levels, where and when. As we understand it, this is an operating coalition. Turkey is a part of this coalition. Thus, they should have been informed that the Russian Air Force was operating in the area. Who else could it be? How would they act if they knew it was an American jet? Would they hit it? This is all nonsense. These are just excuses. It’s highly regrettable that instead of seriously analysing this issue and making sure that such incidents never happen again, we are hearing inconclusive explanations and statements that they don’t have anything to apologise for. Anyway, this is Turkey’s choice, not ours.”

Saudi sponsors 'al-CIA-duh' ISIS, the Taliban, the Afghan Mujaheddin extreme Sunni Wahabism.................AND drum roll pleez...............the Israeli PM.

.
.
.
.
.
No this isn't a 2 minute Youtube presentation by an 18 year old.

This is official information from the Panama Papers.

From Iraqi Intelligence under Saddam 'the Mukabarat', which was bad but also good....thoroughly investigated the Saudi regime as a neighbor, and the sponsor of Saddams covert nuclear program ...$10 billion from Saudi Arabia (1974--1990). AND the sponsor of Saddams massive Arabic multinational war machine which by 1998 numbered 1.2 million men and some women.....an additional $30 billion in interest free loans from Saudi Arabia...that helped maintain such a huge military.

The Iraqi Mukabarat believed as do others that the Saudi Royal family is of Jewish origin from Basra (in Iraq) who in the 18th century drifted into the Desert to act as raiders/robbers of PILGRIMS TO MAKKAH AND MEDINA. This is how the Saudi family became powerful, which resulted in them being picked by the British Empire as their goffers consolidating 'Saudi' Arabia in the early part of the 20th century.

This fact might explain a number of things:

1. Why Saudi Arabia with so much wealth, forever wages Jihad and covert war and exclusively against fellow Muslim countries, by backing the worst types of Sunni terrorists......since 1979.

2. Why its SECURITY POLICIES/APPARATUS are so closely aligned with Israel and the USA, against Muslim countries. Current example: Israeli pilots flying Saudi jet planes against Yemenis.

3. Why the Saudis dump their trillions of petro $ in Jewish banks in the WEST. At best the Saudis only need to deposit 10 PERCENT of their wealth in Western banks to lubricate their day to day businesses in the West......not 95%.

4. Why the Saudi family have been busy destroying historical buildings in Makkah and Medina....to make way for tasteless touristy super luxury 7 star hotels, and shopping malls which can only be enjoyed by Westerners and rich Saudis.

5. Why do the 7,000 Saudi princes lead such Hedonistic Bohemian lives in the West and in Saudi.......but expect everybody else to be good PURE Sunni Wahabis. This is typical JEW hypocrisy.
(i) They visit the casino's and whorehouses of the West, BUT when a non-Saudi Muslim in Pilgrimage to Makkah and Medina comes to do Haj with the 'wrong' type of Koran, their religious police grab it from the guest and burn the holy book.

6. Why are they so close to the Bush family in the USA? Because the notorious criminal  'Busch' family are themselves Jews, originally from Germany, sort of like the Jewish Saudis from Basra when they migrated to another land. In their case the USA in the 18th century.

The Saudis don't JUST sponsor any moderate Israelis who might be well disposed to peace, coexistence and good relations with the Palestinians first, and the Arab neighborhood, second. Oh no! They just happen to sponsor the most extreme messianic party in Israel who dream of Eretz Isreal. Perfectly in line....true to form... with their sponsorship of other extremists groups in other countries:

Meet The Man Who Funds ISIS: Bilal Erdogan, The Son Of Turkey's President

Russia's Lavrov: 'The Turkish government has in effect sided with ISIS'

By Russia Insider

Russia's Sergey Lavrov is not one foreign minister known to mince his words. Just earlier today, 24 hours after a Russian plane was brought down by the country whose president three years ago said "a short-term border violation can never be a pretext for an attack", had this to say: "We have serious doubts this was an unintended incident and believe this is a planned provocation" by Turkey.
.
But even that was tame compared to what Lavrov said to his Turkish counterparty Mevlut Cavusoglu earlier today during a phone call between the two (Lavrov who was supposed to travel to Turkey has since canceled such plans).
.
As Sputnik transcribes, according to a press release from Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Lavrov pointed out that, "by shooting down a Russian plane on a counter-terrorist mission of the Russian Aerospace Force in Syria, and one that did not violate Turkey’s airspace, the Turkish government has in effect sided with ISIS."
.
It was in this context when Lavrov added that "Turkey’s actions appear premeditated, planned, and undertaken with a specific objective."
.
More importantly, Lavrov pointed to Turkey’s role in the propping up the terror network through the oil trade. Per the Russian statement:
"The Russian Minister reminded his counterpart about Turkey’s involvement in the ISIS’ illegal trade in oil, which is transported via the area where the Russian plane was shot down, and about the terrorist infrastructure, arms and munitions depots and control centers that are also located there."
Others reaffirmed Lavrov's stance, such as retired French General Dominique Trinquand, who said that "Turkey is either not fighting ISIL at all or very little, and does not interfere with different types of smuggling that takes place on its border, be it oil, phosphate, cotton or people," he said.
.
The reason we find this line of questioning fascinating is that just last week in the aftermath of the French terror attack but long before the Turkish downing of the Russian jet, we wrote about "The Most Important Question About ISIS That Nobody Is Asking" in which we asked who is the one "breaching every known law of funding terrorism when buying ISIS crude, almost certainly with the tacit approval by various "western alliance" governments, and why is it that these governments have allowed said middleman to continue funding ISIS for as long as it has?"
.
Precisely one week later, in even more tragic circumstances, suddenly everyone is asking this question.
.
And while we patiently dig to find who the on and offshore "commodity trading" middleman are, who cart away ISIS oil to European and other international markets in exchange for hundreds of millions of dollars, one name keeps popping up as the primary culprit of regional demand for the Islamic State's "terrorist oil" - that of Turkish president Recep Erdogan's son: Bilal Erdogan.
His very brief bio:
Necmettin Bilal Erdogan, commonly known as Bilal Erdogan (born 23 April 1980) is the third child of Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the current President of Turkey.
After graduating from Kartal Imam Hatip High School in 1999, Bilal Erdogan moved to the US for undergraduate education. He also earned a Masters Degree in John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University in 2004. After graduation, he served in the World Bank as intern for a while. He returned Turkey in 2006 and started to his business life. Bilal Erdogan is one of the three equal shareholders of "BMZ Group Denizcilik ve İnşaat Sanayi Anonim Şirketi", a marine transportation corporation.
Here is a recent picture of Bilal, shown in a photo from a Turkish 2014 article, which "asked why his ships are now in Syria":


In the next few days, we will present a full breakdown of Bilal's various business ventures, starting with his BMZ Group which is the name implicated most often in the smuggling of illegal Iraqi and Islamic State through to the western supply chain, but for now here is a brief, if very disturbing snapshot, of both father and son Erdogan by F. William Engdahl, one which should make everyone ask whether the son of Turkey's president (and thus, the father) is the silent mastermind who has been responsible for converting millions of barrels of Syrian Oil into hundreds of millions of dollars of Islamic State revenue.

Sultan Erdogan the Deonme destroying Syria, Lebanon and Iraq, and modern Turkey

.
.
.
.
The Panama Papers will reveal with time the Mafia corruption of his family.

But the Panama papers will not reveal the Internationalist Jewish agenda of his presidency.

The Panama Papers will not reveal his blinkered obsessive vision to destroy Modern Turkey and a few Middle East countries as well.

Erdogan’s Dirty Dangerous ISIS Games


564563333Turkey is a beautiful land, 


rich in resources, 
Chromium crystals and 1cm3 cube.jpg


with many highly intelligent 



and warm people. 




It also happens to have a President who seems intent on destroying his once-proud nation. 

(Shit rises to the top very quickly, after plonking down.

Jewish backed shit rises even more quickly to the top, after plonking down. Israel and the USA)




More and more details are coming to light revealing that the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, variously known as ISIS, IS or Daesh, is being fed and kept alive by Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the Turkish President and by his Turkish intelligence service, including MIT, the Turkish CIA. 
(Another fucking, dirty, greasy 'intelligence' 'service' up to their necks in high crime at the tax payers expense. In MITs case:
1. The primary enabler of ISIS.
2. The primary channel of Opium/Heroin/hashish from Asia to Europe via Albania, Kosovo and Macedonia.
3. Human trafficking.
4. Illegal arms trafficking, well before ISIS, mainly from NATO stockpiles, in Europe {Germany et al}.
5. Illegal Nuclear industry supermarket....and transit point to Pakistan, Middle East generally, Myanmar and North Korea.
6. Supporting radical militant Islam in Russia, coordinating with Saudi, Israel and the USA.
7. Radical militant Uighur separatists into China.
8. Radical militant Turkic Islam in Central Asia.
9. Backing radical militant Islamist in Egypt, Tunisia and most notably Libya.
10. Backing radical militant Islamists in Yemen.
11. Backing radical militant Islamist in Somalia.)

Turkey, as a result of Erdoğan’s pursuit of what some call a Neo-Ottoman Empire fantasies that stretch all the way to China, Syria and Iraq, threatens not only to destroy Turkey but much of the Middle East if he continues on his present path.
.
In October 2014 US Vice President Joe Biden told a Harvard gathering that Erdoğan’s regime was backing ISIS with “hundreds of millions of dollars and thousands of tons of weapons…” Biden later apologized clearly for tactical reasons to get Erdoğan’s permission to use Turkey’s Incirlik Air Base for airstrikes against ISIS in Syria, but the dimensions of Erdoğan’s backing for ISIS since revealed is far, far more than Biden hinted.
.

ISIS militants were trained by US, Israeli and now it emerges, by Turkish special forces at secret bases in Konya Province inside the Turkish border to Syria, over the past three years. Erdoğan’s involvement in ISIS goes much deeper. At a time when Washington, Saudi Arabia and even Qatar appear to have cut off their support for ISIS, they remaining amazingly durable. The reason appears to be the scale of the backing from Erdoğan and his fellow neo-Ottoman Sunni Islam Prime Minister, Ahmet Davutoğlu.



Nice Family Business
.

The prime source of money feeding ISIS these days is sale of Iraqi oil from the Mosul region oilfields where they maintain a stronghold. The son of Erdoğan it seems is the man who makes the export sales of ISIS-controlled oil possible.
.

Bilal Erdoğan owns several maritime companies. He has allegedly signed contracts with European operating companies to carry Iraqi stolen oil to different Asian countries. The Turkish government buys Iraqi plundered oil which is being produced from the Iraqi seized oil wells. Bilal Erdoğan’s maritime companies own special wharfs in Beirut and Ceyhan ports that are transporting ISIS’ smuggled crude oil in Japan-bound oil tankers.
.

Gürsel Tekin vice-president of the Turkish Republican Peoples’ Party, CHP, declared in a recent Turkish media interview, “President Erdoğan claims that according to international transportation conventions there is no legal infraction concerning Bilal’s illicit activities and his son is doing an ordinary business with the registered Japanese companies, but in fact Bilal Erdoğan is up to his neck in complicity with terrorism, but as long as his father holds office he will be immune from any judicial prosecution.” Tekin adds that Bilal’s maritime company doing the oil trades for ISIS, BMZ Ltd, is “a family business and president Erdoğan’s close relatives hold shares in BMZ and they misused public funds and took illicit loans from Turkish banks.”
.

In addition to son Bilal’s illegal and lucrative oil trading for ISIS, Sümeyye Erdoğan, the daughter of the Turkish President apparently runs a secret hospital camp inside Turkey just over the Syrian border where Turkish army trucks daily being in scores of wounded ISIS Jihadists to be patched up and sent back to wage the bloody Jihad in Syria, according to the testimony of a nurse who was recruited to work there until it was discovered she was a member of the Alawite branch of Islam, the same as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad who Erdoğan seems hell-bent on toppling.
.

Turkish citizen Ramazan Başol, captured this month by Kurdish People’s Defence Units,YPG, as he attempted to join ISIS from Konya province, told his captors that said he was sent to ISIS by the ‘İsmail Ağa Sect,’ a strict Turkish Islam sect reported to be tied to Recep Erdoğan. Başol said the sect recruits members and provides logistic support to the radical Islamist organization. He added that the Sect gives jihad training in neighborhoods of Konya and sends those trained here to join ISIS gangs in Syria.
.

According to French geopolitical analyst, Thierry Meyssan, Recep Erdoğan “organised the pillage of Syria, dismantled all the factories in Aleppo, the economic capital, and stole the machine-tools. Similarly, he organised the theft of archeological treasures and set up an international market in Antioch…with the help of General Benoît Puga, Chief of Staff for the Elysée, he organised a false-flag operation intended to provoke the launching of a war by the Atlantic Alliance – the chemical bombing of la Ghoutta in Damascus, in August 2013. “
.

Meyssan claims that the Syria strategy of Erdoğan was initially secretly developed in coordination with former French Foreign Minister Alain Juppé and Erdoğan’s then Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, in 2011, after Juppe won a hesitant Erdoğan to the idea of supporting the attack on traditional Turkish ally Syria in return for a promise of French support for Turkish membership in the EU. France later backed out, leaving Erdoğan to continue the Syrian bloodbath largely on his own using ISIS.
.

Gen. John R. Allen, an opponent of Obama’s Iran peace strategy, now US diplomatic envoy coordinating the coalition against the Islamic State, exceeded his authorized role after meeting with Erdoğan and “promised to create a « no-fly zone » ninety miles wide, over Syrian territory, along the whole border with Turkey, supposedly intended to help Syrian refugees fleeing from their government, but in reality to apply the « Juppé-Wright plan ». The Turkish Prime Minister, Ahmet Davutoğlu, revealed US support for the project on the TV channel A Haber by launching a bombing raid against the PKK.” Meyssan adds.

There are never winners in war and Erdoğan’s war against Syria’s Assad demonstrates that in bold. Turkey and the world deserve better. Ahmet Davutoğlu’s (and Ataturk's) famous “Zero Problems With Neighbors” foreign policy has been turned into massive problems with all neighbors due to the foolish ambitions of Erdoğan and his gang.

Russia is a sure bet neighbor on investments, guaranteeing a good return

.
.
.
.
Russian governments are stable.

Infrastructure is pretty good.

Its a neighbor.

Its not far as South America, crossing several oceans.

Its not Africa.

And its not the turmoiled Middle East.

It has a skilled Middle Class of a certain size

Its the country which laid the foundations of Chinese industry and development, from 1949.

China has an awful lot of cash reserves to throw about, and whilst the Japanese model of boosting the economy is useful....boosting infrastructure projects inside the country, investing in a foreign secure environment is just as effective.

The Chinese economy is slowing down so why not support and boost allied economies, which in turn boomerang and bolster and support the Chinese economy?

The Chinese Lend 'Isolated Russia' $12bn for Gas Plant in the Arctic

West throws a spanner in the works, the Chinese step in, the project proceeds

By Russia Insider

.
Russia's Yamal liquefied natural gas (LNG) project has signed loan agreements with Chinese banks worth over $12 billion, it said on Friday, circumventing Western sanctions in a major boost for the project led by gas producer Novatek.
.
Talks with European and Chinese lenders had dragged on for months, complicated by Western sanctions against Novatek and its major shareholder Gennady Timchenko, a friend of Russian President Vladimir Putin, over Moscow's role in the Ukraine crisis.
.
With the deal, Yamal LNG's external financing needs, seen at $18-$19 billion, are fully covered.
.
The project has already secured state funds worth 150 billion roubles ($2.3 billion) from a rainy day fund and 3.6 billion euros from state-controlled lender Sberbank and Gazprombank.
.
Yamal LNG's future had been in jeopardy due to the lack of access to Western capital markets. Plunging oil prices, the benchmark for gas prices, had also clouded its prospects.
.
Several other global LNG projects, notably the proposed $30 billion Browse floating LNG project off Australia, have been shelved due to global oversupply.
"The project is progressing in accordance with the approved schedule. With the first train of the LNG plant 65 percent complete we are currently at the most intensive phase of construction and assembly works," Yevgeny Kot, director general of Yamal LNG, said in a statement.
.
'PUTIN'S WIN'
.
The loan deals, the third-largest in Russian corporate history, are likely to be presented in Russia as a victory over what are seen as Western attempts to curb Russia's energy expansion to punish it for its role in the Ukraine crisis.
.
They are also in line with Russia's "Eastwards Pivot", a policy of forging closer political and economic ties with Asia's biggest powerhouses, such as China, to compensate for poorer relations with the West.

Earlier this decade, Kremlin energy champion Rosneft , raised over $30 billion in Western loans to acquire Anglo-Russian oil firm TNK-BP, while oil pipeline monopoly Transneft jointly with Rosneft got $25 billion from Chinese banks to build a pipeline to Asia.
.
The new funds will help the $27 billion Yamal LNG project to start producing liquefied gas next year. Three LNG production lines are envisaged, each with an annual capacity of 5.5 million tonnes.
.
About 95 percent of future production has been pre-sold.
.
Yamal LNG, the world's most northerly project of its kind, is located beyond the Arctic circle. The gas, frozen at a temperature of around minus 160 Celsius (minus 320 Fahrenheit)will be shipped to global markets including China.
.
ussia wants to double its share in the global LNG market by 2020 from 4.5 percent currently. Kremlin-controlled Gazprom and Royal Dutch Shell are key shareholders in Russia's only LNG plant, located on the Pacific island of Sakhalin. It produces over 10 million tonnes of LNG per year.
.
The 15-year loan deals of 9.3 billion euros ($10.6 billion) and 9.8 billion yuan ($1.5 billion) were signed with Export-Import Bank of China and the China Development Bank.
.
The euro-denominated part of the loan is being made at 3.3 percent above the European benchmark 6-month EURIBOR rate at the construction stage and 3.55 percent above thereafter, Yamal LNG said. The renminbi loan is being made at 3.3 percent above China's 6-month SHIBOR benchmark, and then 3.55 percent above.
Novatek holds 50.1 percent of Yamal LNG. France's Total and China National Petroleum Corp control 20 percent each while China's Silk Road Fund owns 9.9 percent.

Puppet NATO Turkey is a problem

.
.
.
.
ISIS appeared only 2 years ago in 2014, and was created by the USA/Israel to:

(i) Balkanise Israel's neighbors, FIRST. Clinton emails  .....
 

(ii) 2ND ...And thus create Eretz Israel, THEREAFTER...or Greater Israel under the Yinon plan of 1982. ...example: Israeli elite commando's are rescuing ISIS fighters in the vicinity of the Golan Heights and sending them to Israeli military hospitals to be patched up so that the ISIS fighters can be sent back to fight the Socialist Democratic government of Assad.


(iii) Re-invigorate the Islamic Fundamentalist meme which was by 2014 definitively flagging as a global scarecrow under 'al-CIA-duh'


(iv) Reinvigorate the destabilization efforts against the legitimately elected governments of Syria and Iraq.


ISIS is the seed in Syria and Iraq which will spread to other regions, as the CIA propaganda tools have published: 

(i) Into North Africa...Egypt, Tunisia, Libya..

(ii) Into West Africa

(iii) Into East Africa.

(iv) Into Yemen.

(v) Into Afghanistan.

(vi) Into Central Asia.

(vii) Into China

(viii) Into South Asia

(ix) Into Europe

(x) North America.

In the above cases the USA and NATO will present themselves as the saviors and 'partners' against ISIS COALITION.

Given such a scenario one would expect greater efforts by legitimate anti-ISIS powers to fight the organization......by sending troops, airforce and navy to Syria and Iraq, FIRST.

Russia, China, India and Japan for example who are not wedded to NATO which is dominated by the USA.

Second, mount an effective long term propaganda to highlight the problem of ISIS for the world.

None of the above powers Russia, China, India or Japan have.

Instead there has been positioning by the above powers around USA policies diplomatically, which is WORTHLESS since the USA is the founder and the main engine driver of ISIS for Israel.

Are people in Russia, China, India and Japan stupid? Of course not.

But they are diplomatically polite, and by and large passive powers. Russia being an exception due only to the fact that Syria is their client state since 1958, and 5,000---7,000 fighters of ISIS are Russians, some with elite military backgrounds. They had to be confronted before they made their trips back across the Caucasus into Russia again.

So pointing fingers at the USA might be too much for Russia, China, India and Japan. But this ISIS thing really needs to be exposed, and soon. Passive world powers watching it grow does not bode well for world order and peace. An world order and stability that benefits Russia, China, India and Japan.

ISIS according to the CIA is about 100,000 strong and is sustained for the last 2 years by the USA, Israel, UK, France, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Jordan.

The legitimate Syrian governments says upwards of 80 countries support ISIS, whilst Putin says 40 countries fund ISIS. What we can definitively say is that that kind of Grand Coalition of the willing can only be mustered by the USA and Israel.

There are of course degrees of support for ISIS.

But what is clear is that NATO Turkey is a key player in all this, egged on and directed by the USA and Israel.

Whilst it may be diplomatically impossible to point the OBVIOUS finger at the USA, it is less so against NATO Turkey.

Indeed it is the duty of Russia, China, India and Japan to do so in a sustained extensive counter offensive propaganda manner.

Research Paper: ISIS-Turkey Links
By David L. Phillips 
Published in the Huffington Post


Introduction
Is Turkey collaborating with the Islamic State (ISIS)? Allegations range from military cooperation and weapons transfers to logistical support, financial assistance, and the provision of medical services. It is also alleged that Turkey turned a blind eye to ISIS attacks against Kobani.
.
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu strongly deny complicity with ISIS. Erdogan visited the Council on Foreign Relations on September 22, 2014. He criticized “smear campaigns [and] attempts to distort perception about us.” Erdogan decried, “A systematic attack on Turkey’s international reputation, “complaining that “Turkey has been subject to very unjust and ill-intentioned news items from media organizations.” Erdogan posited: “My request from our friends in the United States is to make your assessment about Turkey by basing your information on objective sources.”
.
Columbia University’s Program on Peace-building and Rights assigned a team of researchers in the United States, Europe, and Turkey to examine Turkish and international media, assessing the credibility of allegations. This report draws on a variety of international sources — The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Guardian, The Daily Mail, BBC, Sky News, as well as Turkish sources, CNN Turk, Hurriyet Daily News, Taraf, Cumhuriyet, and Radikal among others.
.
Allegations
.
Turkey Provides Military Equipment to ISIS
.
An ISIS commander told The Washington Post on August 12, 2014: “Most of the fighters who joined us in the beginning of the war came via Turkey, and so did our equipment and supplies.” 
.
• Kemal Kiliçdaroglu, head of the Republican People’s Party (CHP), produced a statement from the Adana Office of the Prosecutor on October 14, 2014 maintaining that Turkey supplied weapons to terror groups. He also produced interview transcripts from truck drivers who delivered weapons to the groups. According to Kiliçdaroglu, the Turkish government claims the trucks were for humanitarian aid to the Turkmen, but the Turkmen said no humanitarian aid was delivered.
.
• According to CHP Vice President Bulent Tezcan, three trucks were stopped in Adana for inspection on January 19, 2014. The trucks were loaded with weapons in Esenboga Airport in Ankara. The drivers drove the trucks to the border, where a MIT agent was supposed to take over and drive the trucks to Syria to deliver materials to ISIS and groups in Syria. This happened many times. When the trucks were stopped, MIT agents tried to keep the inspectors from looking inside the crates. The inspectors found rockets, arms, and ammunitions.
.
• Cumhuriyet reports that Fuat Avni, a preeminent Twitter user who reported on the December 17th corruption probe, that audio tapes confirm that Turkey provided financial and military aid to terrorist groups associated with Al Qaeda on October 12, 2014. On the tapes, Erdogan pressured the Turkish Armed Forces to go to war with Syria. Erdogan demanded that Hakan Fidan, the head of Turkey’s National Intelligence Agency (MIT), come up with a justification for attacking Syria.
.
• Hakan Fidan told Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, Yasar Guler, a senior defense official, and Feridun Sinirlioglu, a senior foreign affairs official: “If need be, I’ll send 4 men into Syria. I’ll formulate a reason to go to war by shooting 8 rockets into Turkey; I’ll have them attack the Tomb of Suleiman Shah.”
.
• Documents surfaced on September 19th, 2014 showing that the Saudi Emir Bender Bin Sultan financed the transportation of arms to ISIS through Turkey. A flight leaving Germany dropped off arms in the Etimesgut airport in Turkey, which was then split into three containers, two of which were given to ISIS and one to Gaza.
.
Turkey Provided Transport and Logistical Assistance to ISIS Fighters
.
According to Radikal on June 13, 2014, Interior Minister Muammar Guler signed a directive: “According to our regional gains, we will help al-Nusra militants against the branch of PKK terrorist organization, the PYD, within our borders...Hatay is a strategic location for the mujahideen crossing from within our borders to Syria. Logistical support for Islamist groups will be increased, and their training, hospital care, and safe passage will mostly take place in Hatay...MIT and the Religious Affairs Directorate will coordinate the placement of fighters in public accommodations.”
.
• The Daily Mail reported on August 25, 2014 that many foreign militants joined ISIS in Syria and Iraq after traveling through Turkey, but Turkey did not try to stop them. This article describes how foreign militants, especially from the UK, go to Syria and Iraq through the Turkish border. They call the border the “Gateway to Jihad.” Turkish army soldiers either turn a blind eye and let them pass, or the jihadists pay the border guards as little as $10 to facilitate their crossing.
.
• Britain’s Sky News obtained documents showing that the Turkish government has stamped passports of foreign militants seeking to cross the Turkey border into Syria to join ISIS.
.
• The BBC interviewed villagers, who claim that buses travel at night, carrying jihadists to fight Kurdish forces in Syria and Iraq, not the Syrian Armed Forces.
.
• A senior Egyptian official indicated on October 9, 2014 that Turkish intelligence is passing satellite imagery and other data to ISIS.
.
Turkey Provided Training to ISIS Fighters
.
CNN Turk reported on July 29, 2014 that in the heart of Istanbul, places like Duzce and Adapazari, have become gathering spots for terrorists. There are religious orders where ISIS militants are trained. Some of these training videos are posted on the Turkish ISIS propaganda website takvahaber.net. According to CNN Turk, Turkish security forces could have stopped these developments if they had wanted to.
.
• Turks who joined an affiliate of ISIS were recorded at a public gathering in Istanbul, which took place on July 28, 2014.
.
• A video shows an ISIS affiliate holding a prayer/gathering in Omerli, a district of Istanbul. In response to the video, CHP Vice President, MP Tanrikulu submitted parliamentary questions to the Minister of the Interior, Efkan Ala, asking questions such as, “Is it true that a camp or camps have been allocated to an affiliate of ISIS in Istanbul? What is this affiliate? Who is it made up of? Is the rumor true that the same area allocated for the camp is also used for military exercises?”
.
• Kemal Kiliçdaroglu warned the AKP government not to provide money and training to terror groups on October 14, 2014. He said, “It isn’t right for armed groups to be trained on Turkish soil. You bring foreign fighters to Turkey, put money in their pockets, guns in their hands, and you ask them to kill Muslims in Syria. We told them to stop helping ISIS. Ahmet Davutoglu asked us to show proof. Everyone knows that they’re helping ISIS.” (See HERE and HERE.)
.
• According to Jordanian intelligence, Turkey trained ISIS militants for special operations. .
.
Turkey Offers Medical Care to ISIS Fighters
.
An ISIS commander told the Washington Post on August 12, 2014, “We used to have some fighters — even high-level members of the Islamic State — getting treated in Turkish hospitals."
.
• Taraf reported on October 12, 2014 that Dengir Mir Mehmet Fırat, a founder of the AKP, said that Turkey supported terrorist groups and still supports them and treats them in hospitals. “In order to weaken the developments in Rojova (Syrian Kurdistan), the government gave concessions and arms to extreme religious groups...the government was helping the wounded. The Minister of Health said something such as, it’s a human obligation to care for the ISIS wounded.”
.
• According to Taraf, Ahmet El H, one of the top commanders at ISIS and Al Baghdadi’s right hand man, was treated at a hospital in Sanliurfa, Turkey, along with other ISIS militants. The Turkish state paid for their treatment. According to Taraf’s sources, ISIS militants are being treated in hospitals all across southeastern Turkey. More and more militants have been coming in to be treated since the start of airstrikes in August. To be more specific, eight ISIS militants were transported through the Sanliurfa border crossing; these are their names: “Mustafa A., Yusuf El R., Mustafa H., Halil El M., Muhammet El H., Ahmet El S., Hasan H., [and] Salim El D.”
.
Turkey Supports ISIS Financially Through Purchase of Oil
.
On September 13, 2014, The New York Times reported on the Obama administration’s efforts to pressure Turkey to crack down on ISIS extensive sales network for oil. James Phillips, a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation, argues that Turkey has not fully cracked down on ISIS’s sales network because it benefits from a lower price for oil, and that there might even be Turks and government officials who benefit from the trade.
.
• Fehim Taştekin wrote in Radikal on September 13, 2014 about illegal pipelines transporting oil from Syria to nearby border towns in Turkey. The oil is sold for as little as 1.25 liras per liter. Taştekin indicated that many of these illegal pipelines were dismantled after operating for 3 years, once his article was published.
.
• According to Diken and OdaTV, David Cohen, a Justice Department official, says that there are Turkish individuals acting as middlemen to help sell ISIS’s oil through Turkey.
.
• On October 14, 2014, a German Parliamentarian from the Green Party accused Turkey of allowing the transportation of arms to ISIS over its territory, as well as the sale of oil.
.
Turkey Assists ISIS Recruitment
.
Kemal Kiliçdaroğlu claimed on October 14, 2014 that ISIS offices in Istanbul and Gaziantep are used to recruit fighters. On October 10, 2014, the mufti of Konya said that 100 people from Konya joined ISIS 4 days ago. (See HERE and HERE.)
.
• OdaTV reports that Takva Haber serves as a propaganda outlet for ISIS to recruit Turkish-speaking individuals in Turkey and Germany. The address where this propaganda website is registered corresponds to the address of a school called Irfan Koleji, which was established by Ilim Yayma Vakfi, a foundation that was created by Erdogan and Davutoglu, among others. It is thus claimed that the propaganda site is operated from the school of the foundation started by AKP members.
.
• Minister of Sports, Suat Kilic, an AKP member, visited Salafi jihadists who are ISIS supporters in Germany. The group is known for reaching out to supporters via free Quran distributions and raising funds to sponsor suicide attacks in Syria and Iraq by raising money.
.
• OdaTV released a video allegedly showing ISIS militants riding a bus in Istanbul.
Turkish Forces Are Fighting Alongside ISIS.
.
• On October 7, 2014, IBDA-C, a militant Islamic organization in Turkey, pledged support to ISIS. A Turkish friend who is a commander in ISIS suggests that Turkey is “involved in all of this” and that “10,000 ISIS members will come to Turkey.” A Huda-Par member at the meeting claims that officials criticize ISIS but in fact sympathize with the group (Huda-Par, the “Free Cause Party”, is a Kurdish Sunni fundamentalist political party). BBP member claims that National Action Party (MHP) officials are close to embracing ISIS. In the meeting, it is asserted that ISIS militants come to Turkey frequently to rest, as though they are taking a break from military service. They claim that Turkey will experience an Islamic revolution, and Turks should be ready for jihad. (See HERE and HERE.)
.
• Seymour Hersh maintains in the London Review of Books that ISIS conducted sarin attacks in Syria, and that Turkey was informed. “For months there had been acute concern among senior military leaders and the intelligence community about the role in the war of Syria’s neighbors, especially Turkey. Prime Minister Recep Erdogan was known to be supporting the al-Nusra Front, a jihadist faction among the rebel opposition, as well as other Islamist rebel groups. ‘We knew there were some in the Turkish government,’ a former senior US intelligence official, who has access to current intelligence, told me, ‘who believed they could get Assad’s nuts in a vice by dabbling with a sarin attack inside Syria - and forcing Obama to make good on his red line threat.”
.
• On September 20, 2014, Demir Celik, a Member of Parliament with the people’s democratic party (HDP) claimed that Turkish Special Forces fight with ISIS.
.
Turkey Helped ISIS in Battle for Kobani
.
Anwar Moslem, Mayor of Kobani, said on September 19, 2014: “Based on the intelligence we got two days before the breakout of the current war, trains full of forces and ammunition, which were passing by north of Kobane, had an-hour-and-ten-to-twenty-minute-long stops in these villages: Salib Qaran, Gire Sor, Moshrefat Ezzo. There are evidences, witnesses, and videos about this. Why is ISIS strong only in Kobane’s east? Why is it not strong either in its south or west? Since these trains stopped in villages located in the east of Kobane, we guess they had brought ammunition and additional force for the ISIS.” In the second article on September 30, 2014, a CHP delegation visited Kobani, where locals claimed that everything from the clothes ISIS militants wear to their guns comes from Turkey. (See HERE and HERE.)
.
• Released by Nuhaber, a video shows Turkish military convoys carrying tanks and ammunition moving freely under ISIS flags in the Cerablus region and Karkamis border crossing (September 25, 2014). There are writings in Turkish on the trucks.
.
• Salih Muslim, PYD head, claims that 120 militants crossed into Syria from Turkey between October 20th and 24th, 2014.
.
• According to an op-ed written by a YPG commander in The New York Times on October 29, 2014, Turkey allows ISIS militants and their equipment to pass freely over the border.
.
• Diken reported, “ISIS fighters crossed the border from Turkey into Syria, over the Turkish train tracks that delineate the border, in full view of Turkish soldiers. They were met there by PYD fighters and stopped.” 
.
• A Kurdish commander in Kobani claims that ISIS militants have Turkish entry stamps on their passports.
.
• Kurds trying to join the battle in Kobani are turned away by Turkish police at the Turkey-Syrian border.
.
• OdaTV released a photograph of a Turkish soldier befriending ISIS militants.
.
Turkey and ISIS Share a Worldview
.
RT reports on Vice President Joe Biden’s remarks detailing Turkish support to ISIS.
.
According to the Hurriyet Daily News on September 26, 2014, “The feelings of the AKP’s heavyweights are not limited to Ankara. I was shocked to hear words of admiration for ISIL from some high-level civil servants even in Şanliurfa. ‘They are like us, fighting against seven great powers in the War of Independence,’ one said.” “Rather than the [Kurdistan Workers’ Party] PKK on the other side, I would rather have ISIL as a neighbor,” said another.”
.
• Cengiz Candar, a well-respected Turkish journalist, maintained that MIT helped “midwife” the Islamic state in Iraq and Syria, as well as other Jihadi groups.
.
• An AKP council member posted on his Facebook page: “Thankfully ISIS exists... May you never run out of ammunition...”
.
• A Turkish Social Security Institution supervisor uses the ISIS logo in internal correspondences.
.
• Bilal Erdogan and Turkish officials meet alleged ISIS fighters.
