Turkey: The Gates of Hell


We can no longer afford to ignore Turkey...
This is a country that is considered an ally by the US and the EU; however, its actions indicate that the ally has been preparing itself to leave the alliance building soon.

Countering Jihad - Then
In December 2013, it was divulged that Turkey reported the deportation of 1,100 European citizens, who intended to cross over to Syria to join Al-Qaeda affiliated groups (Source). Critics say that this report was issued after Turkey was targeted with criticism over its support for Jihadist groups (with recruits, funds and weapons) to depose Bashar al-Assad.
It has also been reported that the European Union requested the Turkish intelligence to arrest any European citizen that would try to cross its borders to wage Jihad in Syria, since the Union could not arrest suspected fighters without concrete evidence and because the Union could not restrict the freedom of movement of its citizens – therefore, Turkey claimed to have kept its eyes wide open, resulting in the deportation of the mentioned number of citizens (although Haaretz reported a much slimmer number: 830 suspects over the course of two years).
Like Sudan, Turkey is very skilful in Political Taqiyya; and with that in mind, I invite you to behold the following scenarios:

  1. Turkey's national interests dictate that Bashar al Assad has to go (particularly after the Syrian President made a tacit arrangement with the Kurds that may derail the anti-Kurd campaign, led by the Turkish ever since it occupied a fourth slice of Kurdistan); therefore Recep Erdogan's people naturally ask themselves: why should we serve the Europeans in detriment of our national interests?
  2. Because it is in Turkey's interest to bring al Assad down; Erdogan's Islamist party supports jihadist groups to do that job for them (although initially the “Open Border Policy” was also intended to allow the so-called “moderate rebels” to pass into Syria to depose the Syrian leader). Yet, to quiet the Americans and Europeans, they send back carefully selected foreign fighters (in an acceptable number to all parties) while allowing the most educated and efficient ones through their borders into Syria. 

Countering Jihad - Now
Turkey continues to outwardly display political will to deport European Jihadists but with a twist; especially in light of the incident reported on the 24th of September 2014: the Turkish authorities sent off three suspects (who were expected to land in Paris) to Marseille without having informed the French police. With Turkey's compliments, the three Jihadists (one of them the brother-in-law of Mohammed Merah, the Toulouse Terrorist) landed in the French southern city and wandered around for several hours before handing themselves over to the authorities – where did they go, whom did they meet and what message did they deliver?
Turkey, in this incident alone, may have aided a terror attack – how many other unreported similar incidents occurred involving Turkish authorities? It's worthwhile looking into it.
When we think of Jihad al-Nikah and all the young women who fled the West to Turkey to join IS/ISIS; when we think of Hayat Boumeddiene who entered and exited Turkey with ease to perpetrate a terror attack in France; we have to suspect Turkey's effectiveness in countering terrorism and Lower Jihad.

We also need to suspect this country when an IS operative (working in Southern Turkey as a smuggler of people) admits that he sends IS fighters through Turkey to “go and visit their families” or to “just go to Europe to be ready” (for attacks against Western targets). The same operative also shared that he and his colleagues smuggle militants into Europe with fake Syrian passports (which can be acquired with relative ease in Turkish soil) – Portugal, does this ring a bell?

Turkey and the Muslim Brotherhood
"Without Jihad and preparation for it, the obligation upon every Muslim to establish an Islamic state and the Islamic Caliphate and to consolidate this religion will not be realized..." -- Mustafa Mashhur in Jihad is the Way

“These descriptions are very ugly, it is offensive and an insult to our religion. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.” -- PM Erdogan

Turkey welcomed the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas (i.e. Terrorist Groups), after Qatar was pressed by its Gulf partners to part with its protégés. Turkey's Islamist government is abusing the relationship Secular Turkey built with the West, over the years, in order to assist in the implementation of the Islamic Global Plan.
Air Force Lt. Gen. Marshall B. Webb (regarding the NATO Special Ops HQ) said “It’s all about information sharing, it’s about comprehensive collaboration and it’s about partner and allied trust,” and if Turkey, as a NATO member, is harbouring and facilitating the activities of the enemies of the Free World, how safe is it to share information and collaborate with the Turkish Partner?

All political considerations aside, the fact is Turkey is presently a threat to the European Peace and Security; and as a result of political failure, Europe is slowly becoming a threat to the West's Peace, Security and Stability.
Recep Erdogan opened the Gates of Hell. When to act or not to act, that is the question...

  1. Turkey is not a worthy ally. They should be kicked out of the alliance!

      Oh political considerations prevent countries to act against Turkey, although they should.

      Anon, thank you so much for your comment :D.

  2. With Europe in turmoil, the Kurds suddenly becoming very visible and somewhat successful and the Islamic world in turmoil, Turkey indeed needs to look to protecting its own interests. Quite how this will affect the rest of the world will unfold and I think your postulates will become more obvious as the ISIS problem unfolds more.

    1. Hi Rummy :D!

      I'm hoping that the Kurds will finally reclaim their land back: they deserve it.
      I agree with you assessment, my friend.

      Rummy, thank you so much for your comment :D.

  3. The last caliphate was the Ottoman one, which lasted for 4 centuries.

    1. Hi Looney :D!

      Indeed. Do you think they are assisting the great global Islamic plan in order to reconquer that past Ottoman glory?

      Thank you for your comment, Looney :D.

    2. Max,

      I suppose every nation thinks of the past glory that they had, and I expect that the Turks would be more inclined to this than others. But that is just speculation on my part. It also seems to me that the Turks would never acknowledge a Sunni Arab caliphate. Do you think that the Turks would be more hostile to ISIS or to the Western Infidels? Since ISIS isn't a military threat to Turkey, they can afford to play it off against others for the time being.

    3. Looney,

      Well, Portugal had a glorious past that it has no intention whatsoever of getting back. Would the Turks acknowledge a Shiite Arab State? Or they wouldn't recognise any Arab State, period?
      At this point (and if all things remain equal), Turkey would be more hostile to Western Infidels. Erdogan is driving that country down the Islamist slippery slope. ISIS isn't a military threat for now...

    4. Max, from what I can see, Turkey will just be continuing the Great Game, but doing it better. During the Turkish Empire, all the Muslim states were under their control. Now they would rather play them off one against another to keep them down. The Turks are 3/4 Sunni and 1/4 Shia, so that puts them firmly in the Sunni camp. There doesn't seem to have been any major conflicts between Turkey and Persia/Iran for many centuries, so it is conceivable that the two might unite for a purpose or two. But I am certainly not a careful observer of these matters.

    5. Looney,

      Good point. You are on to something, my friend (thank you for the insight).
      Turkey and Persia had started that union right before the war in Syria broke out; but after al-Assad made an agreement with the Kurds, that attempt to unite appears to have changed (stressing the word "appears").

      Looney, again, cheers for the insight.

  4. Turkey is also a transit point for oil deliveries from ISIS so it's definitely a threat. We'll see how the UN council resolution will press Turkey to stop helping to fund ISIS.

    1. Hi Jack :D!

      Indeed, it is. That UNSC resolution should make it more difficult for Turkey to support ISIS...but what about AQ, Khorasan and others?

      Jack, thank you so much for your comment :D.

  5. Of course Turkey is dissimulated, everybody knows that, especially now with Erdogan! There is something profoundly wrong with Muslim politics as I'm under the impression they want to conquer us all after we have no use to them!

    1. Hi Cêcê :D!

      Once we have no use to them? Hmmm....maybe.
      Well, I have no problems with Islamic politics but I do have issues with religious and cultural impositions on us, that's all.

      My darling, thank you so much for your comment :D.

  6. Absolutely, cutting on defense spending is a crime and an act of treason! I never thought I'd agree with the Russians on this but I do. But of course, we need to beware of their motives. I make no comments on leftists; I'm sick of them all.

  7. Turkey is not countering Jihad it is supporting it! All evidence points in that direction and we just let them cause we are worried about diplomatic relations? Ok, see you in the WWIII.
