Title: Turkey Continues Move Towards Jerusalem
Post by: Richard Myers on November 19, 2019, 07:46:33 AM
We have for many years  been pointing out that Turkey is no longer a free republic, but an Islamic State which can no longer remain in NATO. There has little been said about this situation, but we are nearing the end of her ties with NATO. There battle against the Kurds and their relationship with Russia are opening the wounds very wide.

A recent visit by Erdogan to the US where Trump and five senators gave him opportunity to express his errors proved his intentions are still moving away from NATO. The path he has chosen is incompatible with the West. He is an Islamist and is intent on going to war with Israel over Jerusalem. source (https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-brings-erdogan-and-gop-critics-together--with-no-clear-result/2019/11/14/d34e7b4c-071e-11ea-a5e2-fccc16fa3576_story.html)

The consolidation of power within Turkey’s executive branch has allowed Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan to take unprecedented steps to undermine the nation’s democratic institutions. In particular, the return of the trustee system after the March 31, 2019 elections provides strong evidence that Erdoğan is not only committed to dismantling local democracy, but is also unchecked in these efforts.  source (https://ahvalnews.com/turkey-democracy/return-palace-rule-turkey-marks-its-parliaments-centennial)

Protecting Jerusalem is a red line for Turkey, and Ankara will never leave the holy city to the mercy of the occupant Israeli government, state-run Anadolu Agency quoted Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan as saying in a speech to the Pakistani parliament on Friday.

“We gave and will continue to give the strongest response to the occupation, annexation and destruction plan announced by the U.S. government a few weeks ago labelled the deal of the century,” Erdoğan said, referring to a plan for the Middle East announced by U.S. President Donald Trump last month.  source (https://ahvalnews.com/turkey-israel/jerusalem-turkeys-red-line-says-erdogan)

Is Turkey still on the move? Does she really want to re-establish the Ottoman Empire and conquer Jerusalem? Turkey's new caliphate is headed by its leader President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. He has sent forces into Libya which has turned the tide in the battle for control of the country. Interestingly he is battling against Russian power which has been involved in Libya for some time. Here is a reference to Turkey and the Ottoman Empire in an article on the subject recently published.

"The triumphs marked a stunning reversal of fortunes for the United Nations-backed Tripoli government, which looked weak and badly besieged by Mr. Hifter until President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey sent troops and armed drones in January. It was Turkey’s most forceful intervention in the oil-rich North African nation since the end of the Ottoman Empire over a century ago." source (https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/21/world/middleeast/libya-turkey-russia-hifter.html)
