Assad – Turkey’s Erdogan has ambition to be head sultan/imam of the Islamic world


Question 10:  We didn’t talk about Turkey.  They let go into Europe hundreds of thousands of refugees, and it seems that they let go into Syria jihadists.

So, what is the role of Turkey?

President Assad: The most dangerous role, in the whole situation, because Turkey offered all kinds of support to those terrorists, and all the spectrums of the terrorists. Some countries support al-Nusra Front, which is Al Qaeda, some other countries support ISIS, while Turkey supports both, and other groups at the same time. They support them with, how to say, human resources, they recruit. They support them with money, logistics, armaments, surveillance, information, and even the maneuvers of their military through their borders during the fights in Syria. Even the money that’s being collected from the rest of the world passes through Turkey, and the oil that ISIS sells is through Turkey, so Turkey is playing the worst part of our crisis.

Second, that’s related directly to Erdogan himself and Davutoglu, because they both reflect the real ideology that they carry in their hearts, which is the Muslim Brotherhood ideology.

Question 11: You think he is Muslim Brotherhood?

President Assad: Not necessarily to be organized, but the mentality, a hundred percent. He cares a lot about politicized Islam which is the opportunistic part of Islam which is not Islam actually. That’s how we look at it, because you shouldn’t politicize religion. So, it’s related directly to him, to his will to see the Muslim Brotherhood governing in the rest of the Arab world so that he can control them as a sultan, but actually more as an imam, not a sultan. That is what Turkey is playing.

    This is probably pretty near the mark.

    Tayyip is unravelling the principles of Atatürk, who like him or loathe him, accuse him of being a ‘crypto’ this that or the other, I think it unlikely Atatürk would have interferred in another nation’s business.

    It’s all very sad.

    I guess the majority of Turks do not support Erdoğan’s ideas… the vote may have been rigged, but more importantly, people vote for security, or what they perceive might be secure.

    Webster Tarpley on Erdogan, the Caliph, controlling ISIS.

      I know… Webster is an interesting and often entertaining listen, but he will laugh off David Icke (so many still do) and apparently eats like a pig… not a hindrance to quality information, but should you find yourself at his table be warned.

      Do not confuse the actions of Erdoğan & co with the true feelings of the Turkish people. Like me, they are often seen to be led by an OA, official arsehole, in my case Camoron. Turkey has to maintain relations with 7 bordering countires, 8 if you include the tip of Azerbaijan; from Christians to Muslims, democracy to dictatorship… at least Atatürk invited leaders to shake hands and trade; after independence he stated about the Turkish territory secured, “We want nothing more, nothing less…”; many died and victory was secured against huge odds. Erdoğan has ideas and ambition beyond his borders. He wants Assad out as do the US & co. as you know. What a mess.

        Thanks for the tip, I’ll avoid eating meze with him then.
        I only threw the article into the ever-more tangling mix.
        Good point you made about the complexities of Turkey’s physical, religious, and ethnic borders. Indeed, what a mess.
