TIME FOR A TAKEOUT – GRUB HUB DELIVERY WAITS ERDOGAN

The coup d’etat in Turkey is fresh in our memory. There are those who contest the word coup and they may have information to justify their take on what really happened.  As we said, many Turks believe this was a setup by Erdogan – so he could take control over the levers of government. And in the aftermath of this so-called coup he did just that. Closing down opposition media organizations, rationalizing the military and jailing independent judges.

He blames the United States for providing succor to his arch enemy Fethullah Gulen.  Muhammed Fethullah Gülen ,who lives in Pennsylvania, has denied all charges that he was involved. Erdgoan demands that we extradite him – fat chance of that happening.  Gülen has suggested the coup was in-fact a “self-coup” carried out by Erdoğan to consolidate his grip on power, a belief shared among some analysts and many Turks. Putting all of the facts together it is not hard to see the bellicose nature of the Turks under Erdogan. But it is not wise to disregard his ways because a trouble maker on a quest of

Since the coup attempt Turkey’s Erdogan has gone on a rampage in Syria and against the Kurds living in Turkey. He blames them for the ills Turkey is facing. Also, Erdogan has belligerent words for the Greeks who control part of the island of Cyprus. (see below) But his number one nemesis is Israel. There is no love lost between the two. Lately, Netanyahu and Erdogan have exchanged fighting words.  Israel has Erdogan’s number and is not afraid to play it.

Turkey,  a member of NATO,NATO Logo big mistake was made in letting him join the exclusive club, has taunted the United States and its allied members by breaking bread with Russia and Iran. The time has come to take him out – Grub Hub is ready to deliver the package. With John Bolton in control it won’t be long before the Muslim’s head starts to roll. 

So let it be written, so let it be done.”

From the West’s perspective, the Turkish government is the equivalent of a close relative with a substance abuse problem: President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has become addicted to authoritarianism. The effects on the family — in this case the NATO alliance, which has included Turkey since 1952 — are devastating. It’s time for President Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron, two leading NATO heads of state, to have a clarifying conversation with Erdogan about his country’s self-destructive impulses.

Trump has shown patience with Turkey’s ongoing military operation against Kurdish militias in northern Syria, which Erdogan considers an existential threat. This should make the Turkish leader more inclined to listen to the U.S. president. However, so far Israel has stayed on the side lines, but in short order will be losing its patience; this means that they most likely will support the Kurdish opposition going forward.

(from Wikipedia)Cyprus was settled by Mycenaean Greeks in two waves in the 2nd millennium BC. Cyprus was placed under British administration based on the Cyprus Convention in 1878 and was formally annexed by Britain in 1914. While Turkish Cypriots made up 18% of the population, the partition of Cyprus and creation of a Turkish state in the north became a policy of Turkish Cypriot leaders and Turkey in the 1950s. Turkish leaders for a period advocated the annexation of Cyprus to Turkey as Cyprus was considered an “extension of Anatolia” by them; while, since the 19th century,[13][14] the majority Greek Cypriot population and its Orthodox church had been pursuing union with Greece, which became a Greek national policy in the 1950s.[15] Following nationalist violence in the 1950s, Cyprus was granted independence in 1960.[16] In 1963, the 11-year intercommunal violence between Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots started, which displaced more than 25,000 Turkish Cypriots[17][18] and brought the end of Turkish Cypriot representation in the republic. On 15 July 1974, a coup d’état was staged by Greek Cypriot nationalists[19][20] and elements of the Greek military junta[21] in an attempt at enosis, the incorporation of Cyprus into Greece. This action precipitated the Turkish invasion of Cyprus on 20 July,[22] which led to the capture of the present-day territory of Northern Cyprus in the following month, after a ceasefire collapsed, and the displacement of over 150,000 Greek Cypriots[23][24] and 50,000 Turkish Cypriots.[25] A separate Turkish Cypriot state in the north was established by unilateral declaration in 1983; the move was widely condemned by the international community, with Turkey alone recognizing the new state. These events and the resulting political situation are matters of a continuing dispute.

ERDOGAN – THE STUFFED SHIRT SUICIDE BOMBER RUNS WITH THE MOUTH

The mouth of the Middle East, no we are not speaking about the the Palestinian airhead Abu Mazen, but the diminutive Nazi wanna be, Erdogan. A suicidal maniac whose ancestors brought death and mayhem to 1,500,000 Armenians. Trying to lecture Netanyahu who spit right back in his face with aplomb. What possessed this wannabe to indulge in a belligerent diatribe against Israel?

Well apparently it was the sight of his buddies, the Hamas vigilantes, who stormed Israel’s border with Gaza. The final tally, 60 or so suicide bombers were put on a carpet ride as they zipped out into space for the opportunity to celebrate with the promised 53 virgins. Of course they will! Those Hamas dudes are pretty slick, using babies as human shields to protect their genitals is a tactic of ingenuity. It proves once again their girly girl personality is just that, no balls.

The provocation of the Iran supported and weaponized Hamas was Israel’s 70th anniversary party and the dedication of the United States embassy to Jerusalem. The cannabalistic nature of theseanimals” took hold as they stormed the border; met with thunder and lighting from the IDF without a Allahu Akbar prayer was evidence of their corrupted cerebellum. Because of the measly lives they built in the Mediterranean facing Gaza their future is bleak; this full affirmation of their ultimate goal of destroying Israel. Like Iran, they want to wipe it from the face of the earth. Only problem here is that they are the ones to be wiped.

Getting back to the problematic creature Erdogan, a twenty first century killer of Kurds, who is closer to being wiped from Nato, has problems of his own. There is a simmering under current to his autocratic rule. Don’t forget his animosity toward the Kurds, who will someday soon take it to him large. Additionally, the Christians of Turkey know how it is to live under the auspices of a runt. Turkey has blood on its hands going back a century. Never taking full blame for their Nazi like holocaust of the Armenian slaughter. Their arch enemy Israel is about to pass an Armenian resolution blaming Turkey for what everyone else knows. The Turks were cold blooded killers. And don’t forget the Ottomans, venomous perpetrators of murder for five centuries. It wasn’t till WWI that the world rid themselves of these saber carrying criminals. 

Netanyahu would have none of Erdogan’s lip. Erdogan is among Hamas’s biggest supporters and there is no doubt that he well understands terrorism and slaughter. I suggest that he not preach morality to us”  An online comment reads: 

Yair Netanyahu's Instagram post

Yair Netanyahu, son of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, posted a controversial image saying “Fuck Turkey” on his Instagram account on Wednesday. This follows a diplomatic row between Israel and Turkey which began Tuesday, when Ankara expelled Israel’s ambassador over the number of Palestinians killed during protests in the Gaza border on Monday.

 WHAT IS THE WORLD COMING TOO? THAT IS THE QUESTION!

BOOT HIM OUT OF NATO NOW!

Turkish President called Israel a terrorist state on Tuesday, May 15, the day that the lira plunged to its lowest ever point against the dollar. The lira has lost 15 percent of its value in the past three months. its record plunge Tuesday was sparked by Erdogan’s vow to take greater control of his government’s monetary policy if he wins the July 24 election, a clear vote of no confidence by the financial markets.
Erdogan hoped to draw attention from the two-digit inflation rate at home by blasting Israel’s prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu,  accusing him of having “Palestinian blood on his hands” after 60 Palestinians died in Monday’s raging riots on the Gaza-Israeli border fence. This stratagem may work in the short term, but not for long. The lira will continue to slide, and the Turkish economy go to pot, for reasons that have nothing to do with Israel and the Palestinians. This is the direct result of the growing strength of the US economy, which has the opposite effect on Israel’s thriving economy.
Turkish-US relations have never been so bad. The only part of the Trump administration willing to maintain a modicum of cooperation with Ankara is the Pentagon. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis contends that this is essential in view of the US Air Force’s use of Turkish air bases for attacking the Islamic State in Syria in Iraq. But the common ground between Washington and Ankara is shrinking for four reasons, although both governments are anxious to gloss over this decline.

  1. Erdogan to this day accuses US intelligence of supporting the attempted military coup for his ouster in July 2016. He never tires of demanding US extradition of the Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen whom he holds responsible for orchestrating the coup from his American exile.
  2. The Turkish president has been cozying up to Russia’s Vladimir Putin and has become the first NATO member to purchase Russian weapons.
  3. The Turkish army invaded the northern Syrian province of Afrin to drive the Kurdish YPG militia, a staunch US ally, out of that part of Syria. For now, the Turkish troops are stuck there because their further advance is blocked by US and French forces.
  4. Erdogan has developed close ties with the ayatollahs in Tehran.

Therefore, Erdogan will not help himself politically or ease his economic and military woes by rudely insulting Israel; he will only exacerbate them.

LITTLE RUNT RUNNING WITH THE MOUTH ON APRIL FOOLS DAY

As we headed into the Easter weekend, Turkey’s little runt ran his diarrhea mouth once again. Has the Muslim Dog bit off more than he can chew? Will he suffer from a chemical infusion sometime in the future? Only Israel’s Mossad knows. They know how to return the favor.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blasted Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday for calling Israel’s actions on the Gaza border “inhumane,” saying this must be the way they celebrate April Fool’s Day in Turkey.

“The most moral army in the world,” Netanyahu said of the IDF, “will not be preached to from someone who for years has indiscriminately bombed civilian populations. Apparently this is the way they mark April Fool’s Day in Ankara.”

Dozens of pro-Syrian forces killed in Turkish airstrikes

BEIRUT – Turkish warplanes struck pro-Syrian government forces in the northwestern Afrin region of Syria on Saturday, killing at least 36 of them, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

It said this was the third time in 48 hours that Turkish warplanes had struck pro-government forces that entered Afrin last week in support of the Kurdish YPG militia as it fights to stave off an offensive by Turkey and allied Syrian militias.

Afrin offensive: 36 pro-Syrian government soldiers ‘killed in Turkish air strike’BBC News.svg

At least 36 pro-Syrian government troops have been killed by a Turkish air strike in the region of Afrin, a monitoring group says.

The strike targeted a camp at Kafr Jina in the northern Syrian region, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said.

The pro-government troops entered Afrin two weeks ago to back Kurdish forces.

They are fighting a Turkish military offensive that was launched to clear Kurdish groups from Afrin.

Turkey considers the Kurdish militiamen there terrorists.

The Syrian government has denounced the offensive as a “blatant attack” on its sovereignty and, according to state media, forces were sent in to support the Kurds.

The air strike followed one of the bloodiest days for Turkish troops since they began the offensive in January.

Eight Turkish soldiers were killed and another 13 were injured on Thursday in fighting in Afrin.

Five “heroic comrades fell as martyrs and seven were wounded”, an initial statement from Turkey’s military said. A second statement announced three more soldiers had been killed and six more wounded.

No official details of the clashes were given but the private Dogan news agency said Kurdish fighters used tunnels to ambush Turkish special forces in the Keltepe district.

A Turkish helicopter sent in to rescue the wounded was hit and had to turn back, the report added.

Thousands of civilians in Afrin have fled their homes since Turkey’s offensive began.

A map of Syria showing who controls the different areas

The Turkish government says the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) militia is an extension of the banned Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which has fought for Kurdish autonomy in south-eastern Turkey for three decades.

The YPG denies any direct organisational links to the PKK.

Neither side has released much information about fatalities, making the death toll in Afrin difficult to gauge.

The UK-based SOHR says more than 141 civilians have died but Turkey denies this, saying only combatants are targeted.

Last month, Amnesty International said indiscriminate shelling had killed scores of civilians in Afrin.

Presentational grey line

Yet another new flashpoint?

Analysis by Sebastian Usher, BBC Arab Affairs Editor

When pro-government militia forces edged into Afrin last month, it wasn’t clear what their strategic purpose would be.

Videos showed a small group of militiamen being welcomed to Afrin city by Kurds there as their saviours. But it didn’t seem likely that they would play much more than a symbolic role, allowing the Syrian government to vaunt a new territorial initiative but at no major risk.

In fact, it seemed that it might be a way of de-escalating the latest conflict in Syria after Turkey launched its operation against Kurdish fighters there.

A deal to allow the Syrian government to take over much of the control of the area might suit many of the parties involved. It might even be a less bad option for Turkey, allowing it to turn down the intensity of its offensive.

But if the reports are true that pro-government forces have been badly hit by Turkish airstrikes, that would appear to undercut this interpretation, raising the prospect of yet another new flashpoint in Syria.

    Moscow: 20 US bases set up in Kurdish areas of Syria

    Secretary of the Russian Security Council Alexander Venediktov told Ria Novosti. “The return of peace and stability to Syria is hampered by continued external interference in the Syrian crisis. For example, in the territory controlled by the people’s self-defense units of Kurdistan, some 20 US military bases have been created,” the official said. According to the Russian official, US interference in the Syria conflict “provoked Turkey’s military operation” targeting Kurdish militias in Afrin. DEBKAfile:  The 20 US bases in Syria were first reported on Jan. 11. The rerun of the report supports Moscow’s campaign against the US military presence in Syria, which claims that it  is illegal, whereas the Russian military was invited by the “legitimate” Assad regime.

US-BACKED SDF WARNS TURKEY AGAINST WIDENING ATTACK

The US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) said Turkey would face the “appropriate response” if it follows through on a threat to widen its assault against a Syrian Kurdish militia all the way to the border with Iraq.

Senior SDF official Redur Xelil was responding to Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s threat to sweep militants from the length of Turkey’s Syrian frontier. “When he tries to widen his battle, he will be met by the appropriate response,” Xelil told Reuters in an interview in the town of Amuda in northern Syria.

The Turkish offensive in northwest Syria’s Afrin region against the Kurdish YPG militia has opened a new front in the multi-sided Syrian civil war and strained ties with NATO ally Washington.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday Turkish forces would sweep Kurdish fighters from the Syrian border and could push all the way east to the frontier with Iraq — a move which risks a possible confrontation with US forces allied to the Kurds.

The Turkish offensive in northwest Syria’s Afrin region against the Kurdish YPG militia has opened a new front in the multi-sided Syrian civil war and strained ties with NATO ally Washington.

Since the start of the incursion, dubbed “Operation Olive Branch” by Ankara, Erdogan has said Turkish forces would push east towards the town of Manbij, potentially putting them in confrontation with US troops deployed there.

“Operation Olive Branch will continue until it reaches its goals. We will rid Manbij of terrorists, as it was promised to us, and our battles will continue until no terrorist is left until our border with Iraq,” Erdogan said in a speech in Ankara.

A senior official in the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of Kurdish and Arab militias of which the YPG is the strongest, said any wider Turkish assault would face “the appropriate response.”

The Kurdish-led autonomous administration that runs Afrin urged the Syrian government on Thursday to defend its border with Turkey despite Damascus’ stance against Kurdish autonomy.

The Syrian government has said it is ready to target Turkish warplanes in its airspace, but has not intervened so far. It suspects the Kurds of wanting independence in the long-run.

U.S. TO ERDOGAN “YOU WILL SOON EAT YOUR WORDS”

The diminutive saber rattler head of Turkey talks big, but the U.S will soon make him back them up and walk big. What brings us to this conclusion? Two fold, first of all this Muslim Brotherhood anti U.S., Jew hater, Israel basher demands the United States stay out of the Syrian north (Afrin). A demand that will fall on death ears.

Imagine a neutered steer up against a bull; no contest. As we have posted in the past concerning this Napoleon wannabee, we soon will see the bull converted to a steer (a steer is a bull without the cajones) by the KURDS coalition forces. We look forward to it. Threatening the United States on more than one occasion has tested our patience. Now he threatens us large.

Syria war: Turkey denounces US ‘terror army’ plan for border

Key powers involved in Syria’s civil war have criticised US plans to help an allied Kurdish-led militia set up a 30,000-strong “border security force”.

Turkey’s president vowed to “suffocate” efforts to begin training members of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and create what he called a “terror army”.

(click)Ankara considers Kurds fighting for the SDF to be part of a terrorist group.

Syria’s government decried the “blatant attack” on its sovereignty, and Russia warned it could lead to partition.

With the help of air strikes from a US-led coalition, the SDF has captured tens of thousands of square kilometres of territory from Islamic State (IS) militants.

In October, the alliance took full control of the northern city of Raqqa, the de facto capital of the “caliphate” declared by the jihadist group in 2014. Since then, SDF fighters have been advancing south-eastwards along the Euphrates river valley.

The coalition said on Monday that its goal was to create a force with about 30,000 personnel “over the next several years”. About half will be Kurdish and Arab SDF fighters and the other half new recruits.

TIME TO CUT BAIT – THROW TURKEY TO THE WOLVES – ERDOGAN OUT OF NATO

We have previously addressed the suicide bomber who rules Turkey; a wild man with an iron fist rule. A trouble maker consistently fanning the flames of all those who hate Islam. A Muslim miscreant, he has now drawn the wrath of Germany and the Netherlands. How? by calling Netherlands policy of stopping Turkish rallies a Nazi tactic. Germany is aghast, Merkel was shocked that the term Nazis was used. In fact the Nazi is Erdogan, he is guilty of stifling free speech, jailed thousands, firing hundreds of thousands of judges, police, military, imams, foreigners, intellectuals, elitists and the usual suspects; he shut down the free press and demand the United States hand over Fetullah Gulen.

Turkey is now run by the same thugs that toppled Egypt’s Morsi. One thing stands out here, Turkey is a member of Nato. Obama never weighted in on the Turkish situation because, like Erdogan, Obama is a secret member of the Brotherhood.

Remember his reaction when the General al-Sisi interrupted Morsi’s reign of suppressing the freedoms of its citizens. Obama went berserk, stopped military aid, halted imports and pulled our Diplomatic core. This did not happen in Turkey and we know why. Obama is one of them.  But now Trump rules – he is not about to bow to Allah. 

NATO and the United States looks the other way when it is to their advantage, Turkey is strategically located enabling NATO and the U.S. coalition to use Turkish airspace; Turkey needs to be fore warned that their place in history will be dictated by their actions against the NATO countries and their diplomatic transgressions. For instance their sending weapons to the Palestinians aboard the MV Mavi MarmaraIsrael intercepted the MV in international waters during its voyage to Gaza. Fighting erupted and 9 members on the MV were killed.

Click here for Israel and the KurdsCould this be the reason why Erdogan hates Israel.

The Kurds and Kurdish-speaking Yezidis are once again caught in the grip of the Sunni-Shia vice · Against this background and often isolated, their special relationship with Israel stands out for the good: military advice, equipment and training are only some of the ways Israel has helped the Kurdish struggle for independence · “They only have trust in Israel,” says Brigadier General (res.) Tzuri Sagi, the man who led the Kurds to their stunning victories against Iraq in the sixties and seventies.

Erdogan has unleashed a tirade on the Kurds who make up a substantial number of citizens living in Turkey – approximately 20,000,000. Turkey is afraid of them breaking away. Kurds in Turkey and Iraq have defended themselves against outside forces, particularly the Iraqi shias and the pro-Assad forces.

In the latest act of incitement Erdogan spews vile from his rabid mouth that Israel is “playing with fire” concerning their actions on the Temple Mount.  However, Erdogan fails to mention the real crime against humanity is the actions regarding the Hagia Sophia. Once the center of Eastern Christendom, Constantinople competed with Rome.

From the date of its construction in 537 until 1453, it served as a Greek Orthodox cathedral and seat of the Patriarch of Constantinople, except between 1204 and 1261, when it was converted to a Roman Catholic cathedral under the Latin Empire. The building was a mosque from 29 May 1453 until 1931. It was then secularized and opened as a museum on 1 February 1935.Hagia Sophia Mars 2013.jpg

In 1453, Constantinople was conquered by the Ottoman Turks under Sultan Mehmed II, who ordered this main church of Orthodox Christianity converted into a mosque. By that point, the church had fallen into a state of disrepair. Nevertheless, the Christian cathedral made a strong impression on the new Ottoman rulers and they decided to convert it into a mosque.[9][10] The bells, altar, iconostasis, and sacrificial vessels and other relics were removed and the mosaics depicting Jesus, his Mother Mary, Christian saints and angels were also removed or plastered over. Islamic features—such as the mihrab, minbar, and four minarets—were added. It remained a mosque until 1931, when it was closed to the public for four years. It was re-opened in 1935 as a museum by the Republic of Turkey. Hagia Sophia is currently (2014) the second-most visited museum in Turkey, attracting almost 3.3 million visitors annually.

Before the world pays attention to this Turkish imbecile they must demand that the Hagia Sophia be restored to its rightful place in history. It is noteworthy to remind those Christians that Turkey once 100% Christian is now outnumbered by Muslims, 80,000,000 to less than 200,000. this is a manifestation of the treatment Christians receive in the Muslim world.

NATO ONE STEP CLOSER TO HEAVING TURKEY OUT

The Muslim Brotherhood Jihadist ruling Turkey has gone to far.  NATO members are serupticiously holding talks on heaving this murder out of the organization. Blaming the United States for the attempted coup, all the while accusing us of harboring Fethullah Gulen have caused a major schism in our relationship. He is sought by the Turkish government for alleged involvement in the 2016 coup attempt.  Additionally, there is no love for Israel as this Napoleon complex diminutive can’t get over the controversial and war like provoking  Mavi Marmara incident. Realpolitik played a part in Israel’s latent response and regret of the incident. Note that Obama put the proverbial gun to Netanyahu’s head.

NATO in the past has looked the other way when it was to their advantage, Turkey is strategically located enabling NATO and the U.S. coalition to use Turkish airspace; Turkey needs to be fore warned that their place in history will be dictated by their actions against the NATO countries and their diplomatic transgressions. In the latest act of incitement Erdogan spews from his rabid mouth that Israel is “playing with fire” concerning their actions on the Temple Mount.  However, Erdogan fails to mention the real crime against humanity is the actions regarding the Hagia Sophia.

Currently and subsequent to the defeat of ISIS in Syria and Iraq, Erdogan has gone on the warpath against the Kurds. Especially in Syria does he have little tolerance for a Kurdish enclave on its border. The foaming at the mouth war monger is intent on crushing any kind of Kurdish control of territory, be it in Turkey, Syria or Iraq.  U.S. backing for the Kurdish YPG fighters in Syria has infuriated Turkey, which views their growing battlefield strength as a security threat due to a decades-old insurgency by the Kurdish PKK within in its borders.

In an August 2017 interview Erdogan said, “We will not leave the separatist organization in peace in both Iraq and Syria,” Erdogan said in a speech on Saturday in the eastern town of Malatya, referring to the YPG in Syria and PKK bases in Iraq. “We know that if we do not drain the swamp, we cannot get rid of flies.”

The YPG denies Turkish allegations of links with Kurdish militants inside Turkey, saying it is only interested in self-rule in Syria and warning that any Turkish assault will draw its fighters away from the battle against Islamic State which they are waging in an alliance with local Arab forces.

Erdogan’s comments follow the appointment of three new leaders of Turkey’s army, air force and navy last week – moves which analysts and officials said were at least partly aimed at preparing for any campaign against the YPG militia.

Turkish forces swept into north Syria last year to seize territory from Islamic State, while also cutting off Kurdish-controlled northeast Syria from the Kurdish pocket of Afrin further west. They thereby prevented Kurdish control over almost the whole sweep of the border – Ankara’s worst-case scenario.

Ankara considers the YPG an extension of the PKK, which is designated a terrorist organization by Turkey, the United States and European Union.

Can Kasapoglu, a defense analyst at the Istanbul-based Center for Economics and Foreign Policy Studies (EDAM), said the YPG “remains at the epicenter of Turkey’s threat perception”.

However, the cuddling up to Iran and Russia maybe the straw that broke the camel’s back. Erdogan has gone too far. NATO is alarmed at the new Turkish posture; they are now considering booting Islamic Turkey from their association. Why defend Turkey if attacked? That is the question.

Russia, Turkey and Iran will hold summit talks on Syria next week as Ankara threatens a possible attack on U.S.-allied Kurdish forces and tensions rise between Moscow and Washington over the future of the war-torn state.

Russian President Vladimir Putin will host his Turkish and Iranian counterparts, Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Hassan Rouhani, on Nov. 22 in the Black Sea resort of Sochi to discuss Syria and regional developments, Turkey’s state-run Anadolu news service said Thursday. The three powers are key players in Syria, where they’ve spearheaded a cease-fire initiative and are now cooperating on a political settlement.

ERDOGAN – TIME TO KICK HIM WHEN HE IS UP

The Turkish dictator Erdogan, a diminutive pea brain with a  big mouth, who has taunted NATO members for years, exasperating the E.U. with his belligerent invective, has reached the end of the line. Germany is one step beyond the last warning to Erdogan; there is no love lost between Merkel and the diminutive Jihadist.

Even Israel is on the verge of sending the last warning shot to the warmonger. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan joined with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas last week, echoing his incitement for Muslims worldwide to “defend al-Aksa.” Minding someone the business of someone else could get you into a spot not easily extricable. Just repeating this calumny was not enough for the Turkish dictator, who added fuel to the fire by calling Israel’s removal of metal detectors from the entrances to the Temple Mount “not enough” and saying that IDF soldiers were “dirtying” the site with their boots.

 Israel’s foreign ministry’s apparently new approach to Turkish relations that we should all agree with Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid, that Israel should support the creation of a Kurdish state. We should also finally go public and recognize the Ottoman Armenian genocide.

Lapid pulled no punches, adding to his disparagement of the Turkish leader by declaring that Israel should also drop the idea of a gas pipeline to Turkey. It is time, he said, to show Erdogan that he cannot bully Israel.

“The time has come to stop ingratiating ourselves to the Turks, who every time come and kick us harder,” Lapid told journalists during a briefing in Tel Aviv. “We need to say, ‘Okay, we understand, now we have to run our own policy: From now on we support the establishment of an independent Kurdish state, we need to recognize the Armenian genocide, we need to do all the things that we didn’t do when we had good relations with Turkey, because we don’t, and we will not have in the future,” he said.

Turkey’s 15 million Kurds represent nearly 18% of the country’s population. Like most of their fellow Muslim citizens, they are Sunnis, but it is their cultural distinction, their ethnic identity, that they are fighting to preserve. Some of the actual fighting is conducted in their name by Kurdish rebels, the PKK, which has resulted in scores of thousands of deaths over recent decades.

Between July 2015 and December 2016, some 1,200 civilians and 800 members of Turkish security forces were killed, and more than 500,000 were displaced. Erdogan has arrested hundreds of members of the Kurdish People’s Democratic Party (HDP) on trumped-up charges of collaborating with the PKK, whose physical destruction he pursues, refusing to negotiate.

Erdogan has a violent accusatory mindset, blaming the Kurds, Israel, ISIS for his country’s ills. He sees a conspirator, coup or assassin behind every Mosque. Erdogan’s own words there is “absolutely no difference” between ISIS, Kurdish rebels and the movement behind the U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen, calling them terrorists. There is only one word to describe this anti American despot, “KILLER.” 

The Europeans have it right so far, rejecting Turkey’s entrance into the European Union (EU). What sets Europe apart from Turkey is their Islamic identity while Europe on the whole is Christian.  And don’t forget that Turkey, mainly consisting of an Asian people, was an invading country under the Ottomans; Greece, Bosnia and Spain fell in their wake. That brings us to Turkey today. A NATO member under the iron hand of Islamist Erdogan who has no trouble stirring the pot of racism, blaming others for his faults.

Case in point, the Kurds who have been clamoring for their own country without success. Turkey is adamant that the Kurds are Turks and not minorities, therefore by acquiescing to their demand it would open the floodgates for others. That is a self serving argument. And with ISIS one mile from the Turkish border on the ready to massacre the Kurds in Syria, Erdogan says let them die, we will not help with their defense.

On April 25, the Turkish Air Force bombed the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) General Command HQ in the Mount Karachok near the town of Al-Malikiyah, according to a statement released by the YPG General Command. Airstrikes also hit “a media center, a local radio station [Voice of Rojava FM], communication headquarters and some military institutions.”

The YPG Central Command also confirmed causalities among YPG members and civilians. According to pro-Kurdish sources, about 20 persons were killed in the airstrikes. The YPG is a core of the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces operating in Syria.

In turn, the Turkish military released a statement saying that Turkish warplanes had bombed members of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in northern Syria and in northern Iraq. Ankara sees the YPG as a branch of the PKK in Syria and describes it as a terrorist group.

According to the statement, some 70 PKK members were killed in the air raids [30 – in Syria, 40 – in Iraq] and the targets were hit to prevent the PKK from sending “terrorists, arms, ammunition and explosives to Turkey.” The Turkish statement clearly dismissed speculations that Ankara forces hit US-backed fighters in Syria by mistake.

Turkish President Recep Erdogan said the US and Russia were informed of the attacks. However, the Pentagon said, “These airstrikes were not approved by the Counter ISIS Coalition and led to the unfortunate loss of life of our partner forces.

THE TIME HAS COME FOR TRUMP TO CUT TURKEY LOOSE FROM NATO. ERDOGAN IS PLAYING WITH MORE THAN FIRE HERE; SOON HE WILL REGRET WHAT HE HAS DONE. 

TIME TO CUT BAIT – THROW TURKEY TO THE WOLVES – ERDOGAN OUT OF NATO

We have previously addressed the suicide bomber who rules Turkey; a wild man with an iron fist rule. A trouble maker consistently fanning the flames of all those who hate Islam. A Muslim miscreant, he has now drawn the wrath of Germany and the Netherlands. How? by calling Netherlands policy of stopping Turkish rallies a Nazi tactic. Germany is aghast, Merkel was shocked that the term Nazis was used. In fact the Nazi is Erdogan, he is guilty of stifling free speech, jailed thousands, firing hundreds of thousands of judges, police, military, imams, foreigners, intellectuals, elitists and the usual suspects; he shut down the free press and demand the United States hand over Fetullah Gulen.

Turkey is now run by the same thugs that toppled Egypt’s Morsi. One thing stands out here, Turkey is a member of Nato. Obama never weighted in on the Turkish situation because, like Erdogan, Obama is a secret member of the Brotherhood.

Remember his reaction when the General al-Sisi interrupted Morsi’s reign of suppressing the freedoms of its citizens. Obama went berserk, stopped military aid, halted imports and pulled our Diplomatic core. This did not happen in Turkey and we know why. Obama is one of them.  But now Trump rules – he is not about to bow to Allah. 

NATO and the United States looks the other way when it is to their advantage, Turkey is strategically located enabling NATO and the U.S. coalition to use Turkish airspace; Turkey needs to be fore warned that their place in history will be dictated by their actions against the NATO countries and their diplomatic transgressions. For instance their sending weapons to the Palestinians aboard the MV Mavi Marmara. Israel intercepted the MV in international waters during its voyage to Gaza. Fighting erupted and 9 members on the MV were killed.

Click here for Israel and the Kurds. Could this be the reason why Erdogan hates Israel.

The Kurds and Kurdish-speaking Yezidis are once again caught in the grip of the Sunni-Shia vice · Against this background and often isolated, their special relationship with Israel stands out for the good: military advice, equipment and training are only some of the ways Israel has helped the Kurdish struggle for independence · “They only have trust in Israel,” says Brigadier General (res.) Tzuri Sagi, the man who led the Kurds to their stunning victories against Iraq in the sixties and seventies.

Erdogan has unleashed a tirade on the Kurds who make up a substantial number of citizens living in Turkey – approximately 20,000,000. Turkey is afraid of them breaking away. Kurds in Turkey and Iraq have defended themselves against outside forces, particularly the Iraqi shias and the pro-Assad forces.

In the latest act of incitement Erdogan spews vile from his rabid mouth that Israel is “playing with fire” concerning their actions on the Temple Mount.  However, Erdogan fails to mention the real crime against humanity is the actions regarding the Hagia Sophia. Once the center of Eastern Christendom, Constantinople competed with Rome.

From the date of its construction in 537 until 1453, it served as a Greek Orthodox cathedral and seat of the Patriarch of Constantinople, except between 1204 and 1261, when it was converted to a Roman Catholic cathedral under the Latin Empire. The building was a mosque from 29 May 1453 until 1931. It was then secularized and opened as a museum on 1 February 1935.Hagia Sophia Mars 2013.jpg

In 1453, Constantinople was conquered by the Ottoman Turks under Sultan Mehmed II, who ordered this main church of Orthodox Christianity converted into a mosque. By that point, the church had fallen into a state of disrepair. Nevertheless, the Christian cathedral made a strong impression on the new Ottoman rulers and they decided to convert it into a mosque.[9][10] The bells, altar, iconostasis, and sacrificial vessels and other relics were removed and the mosaics depicting Jesus, his Mother Mary, Christian saints and angels were also removed or plastered over. Islamic features—such as the mihrab, minbar, and four minarets—were added. It remained a mosque until 1931, when it was closed to the public for four years. It was re-opened in 1935 as a museum by the Republic of Turkey. Hagia Sophia is currently (2014) the second-most visited museum in Turkey, attracting almost 3.3 million visitors annually.

Before the world pays attention to this Turkish imbecile they must demand that the Hagia Sophia be restored to its rightful place in history. It is noteworthy to remind those Christians that Turkey once 100% Christian is now outnumbered by Muslims, 80,000,000 to less than 200,000. this is a manifestation of the treatment Christians receive in the Muslim world.

TO KNOW YOUR OPPONENT’S WEAKNESS BEFORE WAR ENSURES VICTORY

In the art of war, knowing your opponent’s weakness beforehand is half the battle.

“The greatest victory is that which requires no battle.” “Sun Tzu said: The art of war is of vital importance to the State.”
Sun Tzu,

The Art of War “Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.”  “Whether in an advantageous position or a disadvantageous one, the opposite state should be always present to your mind.”
Sun Tzu, The Art of War

These well known quotes from Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War” are not to be taken lightly. Not only are they  applicable in our daily lives, business and personal, but are most helpful to the saavy in preparation for war. We would not be surprised if President Trump has read Sun Tzu’s epic. Now that he is President the rendering of their principles when confronting our enemies is most important.

We live in perilous times; being attacked by a reckless child and belligerent strong. This is the result of the weakness shown by Trump’s predecessor. Weakness begets threats. From Russia, China, Iran and North Korea we are on the receiving end of daily provocations. We must be ready to counter them, to be prepared for engagement that obviously will come in due time.

Those who play with fire will eventually get burned. Diminutive dictators or wannabee psychological midgets will find themselves ten feet under if they keep up the inflammatory rhetoric. Case in point is the little man who heads North Korea. A boy with a man’s ego, small stick and loose tongue is a very dangerous combination. History has dealt with these kinds of mental midgets. Testing President Trump early in his administration is a very callous endeavor which ultimately will end in a mass funeral for the psycho of North Korea.

Turkey is another hot spot. Ruled by a wannabee dictator for life, Erdogan, who has not the slightest idea of an adversary’s strength, guile and purpose will face a devastating defeat. Although Turkey has recently reestablished diplomatic relations with Israel, they are still very fragile and subject to the whim of both parties. Erdogan has lashed out at one time or another at the PKK, the Kurds and Israel. Small men inevitably try to take the focus off themselves, blaming others for their failures,  they need a fall guy to raise their self esteem.

For Turkey, which is now in a depression, Erdogan finds the best way to place blame is to create a bogeyman. As he continues to support a Palestinian State (small chance in hell that will happen anytime soon) but not for Turkish autonomy spews reckless diatribe and inflammatory comments warning the Kurds, the PKK and particularly the United States for harboring Fethullah Gullen, a firebrand cleric living in Pennsylvania who Erdogan blames for a failed coup. Eventually these will come back to haunt him.Roj emblem.svg

The future scenario is not pretty, much blood will be spilled.  Erdogan continues to light the fire of war, his enemies are preparing for the ultimate battle. The Kurds on one hand will take it to him from within. Israel is patiently waiting for another incident similar to the Mavi Marmara ; bringing the Turkish military into the conflict will obviously create an incident similar to the Gulf of Tonkin. The battle will be swift and victorious for Turkey’s enemies.

The United States will not back Turkey in case of conflict that is self provoked. Erdogan will remind us of NATO’s Article 5 of the North Atlantic treaty, requiring member states to come to the aid of any member state subject to an armed attack”, but this won’t happen. The Christian West will tell Turkey to fight their own battles. Turkey will be tossed from NATO. Turkey is a dictatorial state ruled by a Tyrant; free press has been stymied, political opposition is a few, 20,000 or more have been jailed since the failed coup. Erdogan is still focusing on  fake news circulating in his dinosaur sized head, little does he realize that there is a new man in town named TRUMP.

And for IRAN, Trump has stated that they will never have a nuclear weapon. This is a strong statement that will most likely be tested in the theater of war. The nuclear deal with Iran is a “total disaster.” We know it, Obama knew it. The table has been set by the Ayatollah’s, ballistic missiles have been launched by the rug merchants in violation of the nuclear agreement. This is of great concern in Israel and the United States. Israel’s Mossad, IDF and Shin Bet are on high alert. However, Israel is known to have many nuclear weapons, some are of the neutron type. But to nuke the Mullahs has risks. There are better ways than to launch a mushroom cloud over Tehran; for instance Israel can bunker bomb their nuclear facilities. Also launch triangular stealth drones to eviscerate the cancerous hierarchy committed to self destruction which is inevitable. Launching whole fleets of these offensive AI robots will bring the maniacal suicide bombers to their senses in quick fashion. For they will get their wish of death.

The map has been set, the time is close, be prepared for the Mother of all Battles.
