'Erdogan’s real aim is to take Turkey out of the Western bloc, out of the civilized world' Kilicdaroglu.


'Erdogan’s real aim is to take Turkey out of the Western bloc, out of the civilized world' Kilicdaroglu. (wsj).

In 1910, during a war against rebels in remote Yemen, a young officer of the Ottoman Empire liked to entertain his soldiers with music: French and Italian operas that he played every night on a gramophone in the desert.

The youthful musical preferences of Ismet Inonu—who would become president of Turkey some three decades later—were no mere personal quirk. Ever since the mid-19th century, when a series of reforms brought elections, civil rights and modern government institutions to the decaying Ottoman Empire, Turkey’s ruling elites had looked to the West as the standard of enlightenment and civilization.

Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the secularist army officer who founded modern Turkey in 1923, sought to sever his land’s ancient bonds to the Middle East. A revolutionary determined to transform everyday life, Atatürk introduced Latin letters and the Swiss Civil Code to replace Arabic script and Islamic Shariah law. This longstanding orientation to the West has made Turkey a rare example of a major Muslim country that is also a prosperous, stable democracy (and, since 1952, a member of NATO).

Mr. Erdogan’s Turkey has come to look increasingly like just another troubled corner of the Middle East. And, many Turks and Westerners fear, the country is becoming infected with the same sicknesses—intolerance, autocracy, repression—that have poisoned the region for decades.

Early on, Mr. Erdogan—who has held de facto power since 2002—was widely hailed as a principled democrat. In recent years, however, he has grown aggressively averse to dissent, and in the wake of a failed coup attempt in July, he has unleashed an unprecedented crackdown. He is now demanding constitutional changes that would give him near-absolute authority and let him remain at the helm of this country of 80 million people until 2029.


Erdogan’s real aim is to take Turkey out of the Western bloc, out of the civilized world, and to turn Turkey into a Middle Eastern country where he can continue to rule without any obstacles,” said Kemal Kilicdaroglu, the head of Turkey’s biggest opposition party, the Republican People’s Party, or CHP.
He wants to turn Turkey into a country where there is no secularism and where people are divided along their ethnic identity and their beliefs. It is becoming a nation that faces internal conflict, just as we have seen in Iraq, Syria or Libya.” Read the full story here.

Turkey has replaced pro-western military officers in diplomatic and NATO posts with pro-Russia-China-Iran figures, The Times claimed.

In the wake of failed military coup in Turkey, the government has recalled or retired some 150 officers in ranks of NATO.

A number of those dismissed have written to General Scaparrotti voicing concerns about their replacements.

One leaked email, The Times reports, alleges "I and my Turkish colleagues observe a considerable rise of ultra-nationalist, anti-western sentiments within our military and throughout our state departments".

"It is very worrying to witness that some of the newcomers from Turkey to Nato have a radical mindset, some question the values of Nato and even hate western organisations while holding pro-Russia-China-Iran sentiments," the report adds.

Among those reportedly replaced are two senior officers in the Turkish defence attache's office in London.

Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has revealed that some Turkish officers working at the alliance had applied for asylum in Europe.

General Scaparrotti said he had no suspicion that any of the Turkish officers might have been involved in a coup plot.

Turkey has one of Nato’s largest armies, and is a strategic bridge to the Middle East and Black Sea region.

Alija Izetbegovic And Erdogan

Alija Izetbegovic, former leader of the Bosnian Muslims was the one, who had masterminded Islamic State projects. - Official. (Sputnik).

The Republika Srpska is one of the two autonomous entities of Bosnia and Herzegovina, while the other is the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. Their relations are largely affected by the civil war among Serbs, Bosnian Muslims and Croatians in 1992-1995.

"We have evidence that the Bosniak political establishment, headed by [Bosniak member of the country's presidency] Bakir Izetbegovic provides all the necessary logistics for arriving terrorists… 
Everyone knows that his father Alija Izetbegovic, who had written the 'Islamic declaration,' was an 'editor-in-chief' of the Daesh project.
If you read the declaration, you will see that it were the same things that the Islamic State had implemented in Syria and Iraq: the Sharia law [above all things] and no mercy to the ones, who do not support them," Dodik said.

He added that the fact that Bakir Izetbegovic had promised to continue the policy of his father should not be forgotten

Daesh, which is an extremist jihadist group outlawed in many countries, including Russia, overran large areas of Syria and Iraq in 2014 and declared a caliphate. The group has gained much notoriety for conducting suicide bombings and other attacks worldwide as well as for recruiting young people via social media.
The Islamic declaration is a manifesto written by Alija Izetbegovic during the existence of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. The declaration sums up his views on ties between the state, society and Islam. The controversial document has been seen by many as a proposal to impose the Sharia law in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Hmmm......Doubtful but perhaps the place and person where young Erdo found inspiration for future plans?
