Turkish Journalists: Erdogan Has Been Sleeping with ISIS from Time Immemorial

"Hey, my bosses are ultimately from his country. If I get to sleep with ISIS, it's because I was told that I had no other choice. We are all puppets, you know."

The Turkish people are rising up against what they call “fascism.” Like many Americans, they start to realize that they have been manipulated by their government: they lied about ISIS, they lied about the so-called Syrian rebels,[1] they lied about the so-called war on terror, they lied about Vladimir Putin, and the lied about the recent attack on the Russian fighter jet.[2]

The attack on the Russian fighter jet, which some say is “President Erdogan’s act of revenge,” has really exposed the Turkish government for what they truly are. For example, the Turkish government said that they gave the fighter jet 10 warnings over a period of five minutes.

But as Alexander Mercouris has pointed out, the fighter jet “infringed Turkish airspace for no more than a couple of seconds.”[3] Even Angela Merkel, of all people, doesn’t seem to buy the Turkish narrative.[4] The issue seems to be deeper:

“The shooting down of the Russian Su-24 bomber over Syrian territory earlier this week could well be President Erdogan’s act of revenge, especially considering that his family is rumored to be involved in ISIL’s illegal oil trade, Stanislav Tarasov, an expert on Middle East, told Radio Sputnik.”[5]

Tarasov said:

“Turkey was recently rocked by a major corruption scandal. We could soon learn that President Erdogan himself is directly linked to ISIL. … Erdogan is constantly keeping the Turkish society on edge.”[6]

Gordon Duff has recently said something similar, that Russia has made it very hard for Turkey

“to steal tens of millions of barrels of Syrian crude oil, much of it at peak market prices, while only paying their ISIS allies a pittance. Vladimir Putin accused Turkey of allowing ISIS Terrorists to run a ‘living oil pipe’ across its border as he upped the ante in the row over the downing of a Russian jet.

“The Russian President said that reconnaissance footage, shared with world leaders at the G20 summit earlier this month, showed that oil was being smuggled through Terrorist-held areas in Syria into Turkey ‘day and night.’ There were ‘vehicles, carrying oil, lined up in a chain going beyond the horizon,’ he claimed.

“Speaking after talks at the Kremlin with the French President Francois Hollande, Putin accused Ankara of false naivety over ISIS’s huge oil operation. ‘Let’s assume that Turkey’s political leadership knows nothing about it – it’s theoretically possible, albeit hard to believe,’ he said. ‘There may be elements of corruption and insider deals. They should deal with it.’”

Virtually every serious politician or thinker now knows that Turkey has been supporting ISIS[7] and that the shoot-down of the Russian Su-24 bomber was illegal.[8] Charles Dunlap, retired Air Force major general who is currently executive director of the Center on Law, Ethics and National Security at Duke Law School, has recently argued that Turkey has acted against international law.[9]

More importantly, people are beginning to see that that the stuff that makes up the New World Order narrative simply does not add up. Take a look:

The Daily Mail published an article in October of last year entitled, “Oh what a lovely war! Remarkable video shows ISIS fighters strolling right up Turkish border checkpoint for a relaxing chat with guards.” The New York Times admitted the same thing in 2013:

“From the start of Syria’s civil war, rebels fighting President Bashar al-Assad have had no better ally than Turkey’s prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan. He has effectively kept Turkey’s border with Syria open, allowing fighters a haven in the south of his country as weapons, cash and other supplies have flowed to the battlefield. He has even fired on Mr. Assad’s forces.

“Mr. Erdogan was one of the first world leaders to call for Mr. Assad to step down, and from the start he provided a lifeline to the rebels. But with radical Islamists controlling territory along the Turkish border, and the United States working with the Assad government to rid it of chemical weapons, his policy is in turmoil and his country without a viable ally in Syria. Mr. Erdogan has himself been criticized for allowing weapons to get into the hands of jihadists.”[10]

British historian Michael Burleigh, who himself abides by the Zionist narrative in books such as The Third Reich: A New History and The Racial State: Germany 1933-1945, has recently said:

“[W]hile Turkey may be a member of NATO — and of the alliance taking on the jihadists — Erdogan seems to be doing almost everything he can to cripple the forces actually fighting ISIS….

“That’s why, too, Vladimir Putin is at least partly right to accuse him [president Erdogan] of duplicity in his fight against ISIS [ISIL]. Erdogan may want to join the EU, but he’s only a fair-weather friend of the West.”[11]

It has been pointed out that Turkey is an accomplice in the death of an American journalist by the name of Serena Shim:[12]

Turkey could also play a major role in coaching ISIS members in much of Europe, particularly in Italy. As Russia Today has recently pointed out:

“A large cargo of shotguns without transportation permits has been seized by the Italian police at the Port of Trieste. The 847 Turkish-made Winchester shotguns worth about €500,000 were on their way to Belgium.

“The weapons were declared along with other cargoes destined for Germany and the Netherlands on a Dutch-registered truck driven by a Turkish citizen. Gun shipments from Turkey are nothing new in Trieste, but this time the shipment was missing a key document: authorization for transportation in the EU.

“This is not the first time European law enforcement has seized a shipment of Turkish-made weapons. In September, the Hellenic Coast Guard of Greece intercepted two sea containers loaded with some 5,000 pump-action combat shotguns and nearly 500,000 rounds of US-made 9mm ammo, on the Haddad I cargo ship off the port of Heraklion in Crete.”[13]

"It's time to confront the terrorist puppet in Turkey. We will start with economic sanctions."
“It’s time to confront the terrorist puppet in Turkey. We will start with economic sanctions. I really don’t want to miss my Turkey for Christmas, so I need to get ready.”

Russia Today[14] has recently reported that two Turkish journalists by the name of Can Dundar (editor-in-chief of the Turkish daily newspaper Cumhuriyet) and Erdem Gul were “accused of treason over publishing photos of weapons allegedly brought to Syria by Turkish intelligence.”[15] We are told that

“The investigation against them has been launched after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan filed a criminal complaint accusing the journalists of revealing state secrets and aiding terrorists.”[16]

Dundar told reporters outside the courthouse:

“We came here to defend journalism. We came here to defend the right of the public to obtain the news and their right to know if their government is feeding them lies. We came here to show and to prove that governments cannot engage in illegal activity and to defend this.”

Dundar made it very clear that the Turkish government knew pretty well that their weapons were being distributed “in ISIS hands and that “There was that flag that belongs to ISIS… [it could be seen] very clearly [from] Turkish border line.”[17] For Dundar, there is more problem:

“[There is] no difference between ISIS and the other guys. I think there is a problem with the labels here, because all the world is focused on ISIS, but there are other jihadist groups there, and they have links with Al-Nusra or ISIS, [while] Turkey says ‘we are helping that groups – not ISIS.’”[18]

The European Union (EU) has condemned the arrest of the two journalists. European Commission foreign affairs spokeswoman Maja Kocijancic said: “Freedom of expression is one of the fundamental principles for the EU  … (and) we have raised these concerns repeatedly with the Turkish authorities.”

How does the Turkish government respond? Well, in a democratic society, you would expect the government to produce counter-arguments or evidence to defuse the theory that government officials were involved in covert operations, but they are not in interested in doing that. Silencing journalists and placing them in jail indefinitely are more logical to them.

Dundar and Gul “published several articles containing the photos of what was claimed to be weapons smuggled by the Turkish National Intelligence Organization (MİT) into Syria in 2014. The trucks that carried weapons were reportedly searched by police, with Cumhuriyet obtaining the photos and videos of their contents.

“According to the paper, the trucks were carrying six steel containers, with 1,000 artillery shells, 50,000 machine gun rounds, 30,000 heavy machine gun rounds and 1,000 mortar shells for anti-Assad extremists in Syria.”[19]

This is not inconsistent with what we know about Turkey and Erdogan at all. As we have obliquely pointed out in the previous article, David L Phillips of Columbia University’s Institute for the Study of Human Rights wrote last November:

“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…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…’

“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…

“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.”[20]

Phillips moved on to produce a plethora of evidence showing how Turkey is actually sleeping with ISIS. This is certainly incontrovertible among people in the know. Turkish forces, Phillips tells us, are even “fighting alongside ISIS.”[21]

So, the plot thickens. From an objective point of view, the United States is also an accomplice precisely because they have supported Turkey. Some have reasonably argued that Turkey did not act alone in shooting down the Russian fighter jet.

Moreover, the fact that Erdogan ran to NATO and the United States for support right after the incident and the fact that both NATO and the United States support Turkey seems to indicate that they knew something long before Turkey committed the terrorist act. As journalist Finian Cunningham puts it,

“That act alone of running off to NATO suggests that the Turks were well aware from the outset that they had carried out something underhand against Russia, and they were hurriedly seeking a line of protection from the US-led military alliance.

“The day after the incident, Erdogan and his Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu were seriously back-pedaling over the whole incident. The Turkish version of the confrontation appeared to be unraveling from a lack of credibility with several anomalies in terms of the flight path of the Russian fighter jet.

“Even Western sources were beginning to acknowledge that Moscow’s version of the incident was correct in the details that the Russian jet did not cross the Syrian border. The unsettling conclusion beckoned: the Russian jet was hit unlawfully by the Turks.”[22]

Vladimir Putin has made clear that the U.S. knew what Turkey was doing.[23] So, things aren’t going too well for Turkish regime at all.

But because the Turkish government has been duped by the New World Order ideology, they arrested the two journalists who have recently exposed their dark secrets and began to pepper spray supporters who opposed the arrest. That is not all:

“According to Human Rights Watch, Turkey is witnessing a crackdown on media freedom under Erdogan’s rule, with many journalists facing prison terms for reporting on corruption and surveillance by the Turkish state.

“Erdogan’s regime even attempted to silence social media, blocking YouTube and Twitter on a number of occasions.”[24]

This is the type of regime that the United States has supported for years. And it is no accident that the Turkish people are angry. One protester declared:

“It was just like a bomb exploding in Ankara… and [many] organizations around the country called just one day off. Society is ready to explode at any moment.”

As noted writer and philosopher George Santayana put it at the dawn of the twentieth century, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”[25]

The past is being repeated in Turkey at this present moment.  Remember what happened in the summer of 2011? Remember when New World Order agents began to support puppet Hosni Mubarak? The people of Egypt rose up and demanded that he be removed:

Erdorgan has supported New World Order agents in Israel and the United States for years. Now the Turkish people obviously realize that this man is of no use. “Murder Erdogan,” some demonstrators chanted.


Well, they now believe that Erdogan “as well as the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP)” have been “cooperating with Islamic State terrorist group… Some people also held Friday’s edition of Cumhuriyet newspaper with a front-page headline reading ‘Black Day for the press…’”[26]

Figen Yuksekdag, co-chairwoman of the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP), declared:

“All opposition press organizations that are abiding by the ethics of journalism and trying to do their journalism are under threat and under attack. This dark operation aimed at covering the crimes that those trucks carried and the crimes which are continuing to be committed will not be successful. The government does not want any journalist to see what kind of a calamity they have involved Turkey in.”[27]

“The Friday rally in support of the editor-in- chief and Ankara editor of the Cumhuriyet newspaper in the Turkish capital was attended by about 1,000 people accusing the government of attempting to cover up the weapons scandal by silencing the critics and the press. ‘Shoulder-to-shoulder against fascism,’ the crowd chanted.

“About 2,000 people gathered near the Cumhuriyet office in Istanbul to demonstrate their solidarity with the arrested journalists. The protesters filled the yard and the street outside the newspaper’s office chanting, ‘Free press cannot be silenced.’”[28]

The people of Turkey prove that you cannot fool all the people all the time. When Wall Street began to seduce and oppress the masses with Capitalism and its main vehicle which goes by the name of usury, people began to be angry. That gave birth to Occupy Wall Street, a protest movement which began in the fall of 2011.[29]

The fact that Turkey arrested those two journalists who exposed their diabolical plan once again proves that the New World Order is crumbling, and people everywhere are rising up. Jim W. Dean just told me that Turkey has executed the Kurdish top attorney, which to him means that Erdogan

“is not too worried about world public opinion. I think the goals was to stimulate reprisals against the government so he can play the victim. This is what happens when tyranny is not challenged on the world stage. Turkey is literally living under a governmental crime wave, similar to what we did under the Bush thugs.” 

Erdogan and NWO agents, whether they like it or not, will ultimately prove Hegel’s “the cunning of reason,” which basically says that truth will triumph in the end.[30]

This will also prove that Alexander Solzhenitsyn was right, that “the lies will fall away, and that which is destined to be naked will be exposed as such to the world.”
