This is a very worrying development. Not because of what Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has said, but because it signals that the ‘gloves are off’ now.
The Mail Online has tried to obscure and the impact of a potentially massive story such as this, by neutralizing its impact with the frequently used NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) device, the words“conspiracy theory”. That term, used by corporate and state-controlled media strictly as a pejorative term (and not as it was originally intended to be used), has been inserted for one purpose only: to shut down any real debate or discussion.
Notice the Mail’s leading and intentionally obfuscation-laden headline:
“Turkish president accuses ‘the West’ of being behind Charlie Hebdo attacks and deliberately ‘blaming Muslims’ as conspiracy theories sweep the Internet accusing Israel of orchestrating it”.
A little long for a headline, but nonetheless, Eric Blair would have been proud. You have to wonder if it was written by MI5 (ask David Shayler and he will tell you what’s really happening on that front).
Back to the real story. The Turkish President has called out what many already know and understand – that the US (full list here), NATO (GLADIO and MH17) members and Israel (USS Liberty slaughter andother attacks) have engaged in the past in false flag attacks. That is not debatable – that is historical fact.
It seems that there are limits to how much some leaders are willing to put up with when it comes to western intelligence agencies and their governments spinning lies about the so-called ‘terror cells’ in our midst…
• Recep Tayyip Erdoğan suggested French security forces knew of attack
• Turkish President said the West is ‘playing games with the Islamic world’
• Said: ‘French citizens carried out massacre, and Muslims pay the price’
The President of Turkey has suggested French security forces are to blame for the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris last week, since the culprits had recently served prison sentences.
Recep Tayyip Erdoğan accused the West of ‘playing games with the Islamic world’, warning fellow Muslims to be ‘aware’.
Erdogan said Muslims are ‘paying the price’ for the attacks on satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish kosher supermarket in Paris last week.
‘French citizens carry out such a massacre, and Muslims pay the price,’ Erdogan said yesterday.
‘That’s very meaningful … Doesn’t their intelligence organisation track those who leave prison?
‘Games are being played with the Islamic world, we need to be aware of this.
‘The West’s hypocrisy is obvious. As Muslims, we’ve never taken part in terrorist massacres. Behind these lie racism, hatespeech and Islamophobia,’ Erdogan added.
Erdogan also denounced Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for attending a solidarity rally in France on Sunday with other world leaders after the Paris attacks.
‘How can a man who has killed 2,500 people in Gaza with state terrorism wave his hand in Paris, like people are waiting in excitement for him to do so? How dare he go there?’ he said.
Erdogan did not attend the Sunday march, though Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu participated.
Erdogan is not the only senior Turkish politician publicly voicing conspiracy theories over the Paris attacks. The Mayor of Ankara, Melih Gokcek, said he was convinced the Israeli intelligence service Mossad was behind the attacks, linking them to France’s recent move towards recognising Palestine as an independent state.
‘Mossad is definitely behind such incidents… it is boosting enmity towards Islam.’ Mr Gokcek said, according to Financial Times.
In Russia, several pro-Kremlin commentators blamed the United States and the CIA for the attack, the newspaper reported. One, Alexei Martynov, director of the International Institute for New States, said ‘I am sure that some American supervisors are responsible for the terror attacks in Paris, or in any case the Islamists who carried them out.’…
