President Of Turkey: “Palestine Is An Innocent Victim… As For Israel, It Is A Terrorist State, Yes, Terrorist!

The Turkish leader has previously threatened to cut off ties with Israel if Trump follows through with his promise to move the US embassy. He has helped organize an international meeting of officials from Muslim majority countries to discuss how they should respond. Furthermore, he also warned that moving the embassy would represent an obstacle from a logistical standpoint.

Hours after Erdogan’s outburst, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hit back, calling his counterpart a leader who bombs Kurdish villagers and supports terrorists, during an official visit to Paris. While the two countries had normalised relations in recent years, Sunday’s flare-up came after Turkey was angered by US President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel [nearly every deep state US president has done the same]. Furthermore, as we reported on Friday and Saturday, Trump’s move has sparked protests in Muslim and Arab countries for four days.

Erdogan earlier described the status of Jerusalem, whose eastern sector Palestinians see as the capital of their future state, as a “red line” for Muslims:

Rothschild’s Macron

Netanyahu was quick to counter the assault when he spoke later during a press conference alongside French President Emmanuel Macron:

“I am not used to receiving lectures about morality from a leader who bombs Kurdish villagers in his native Turkey, who jails journalists, who helps Iran go around international sanctions, and who helps terrorists, including in Gaza, kill innocent people,” he said quoted by AFP. “That is not the man who is going to lecture us.”

The tit for tat then continued, and the Israeli premier’s comments were immediately denounced by Erdogan’s spokesman Ibrahim Kalin who said:

“Instead of taking on our country and our leader, the Israeli authorities would do better to end their occupation of the Palestinian territories.”

Erdogan has used his position as the current chairman of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to call a summit of the pan-Islamic group on Wednesday.

“We will show that applying the measure will not be as easy as that,” he added on Sunday, referring to the US recognition of Jerusalem. He said it was “absurd” to deny the Jews’ “ancient connection” to Jerusalem.

During his speech, Erdogan held a picture of what he said was a 14-year-old Palestinian boy from Hebron, in the Occupied West Bank, being dragged away by Israeli soldiers. Turkey and Israel had improved diplomatic ties in recent years but Erdogan has continued to defend the Palestinian cause and has regularly criticised Israeli policy.

Turkey issues warrant for ex-CIA officer over alleged role in 2016 coup

The Turkish government has issued a warrant for the arrest of a former officer in the United States Central Intelligence Agency, which Ankara claims was instrumental in the failed July 2016 attempt to topple the government of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. The move comes amidst heightened tensions in relations between Ankara and Washington. The two NATO allies have partially revoked entry visas for each other’s citizens, while it is alleged that Michael Flynn, US President Donald Trump’s former national security advisor, had an illegal agreement with Turkey to help abduct a Turkish dissident cleric living in Pennsylvania and help transport him to Turkey.

The warrant was issued on December 1 by the Office of the Chief Public Prosecutor in Istanbul. It seeks the arrest of Graham Fuller, an 80-year-old former analyst in the CIA, who lives in Canada. The warrant identifies Fuller as a “former CIA official” and claims that he attempted to “overthrow the government of the Republic of Turkey” and obstruct “the missions” of the Turkish government. The reference here is to the July 2016 coup, which the Turkish government claims was carried out by the so-called Gülen movement. The Gülen movement consists of supporters of Muslim cleric Fethullah Gülen, who runs a global network of schools, charities and businesses from his home in the United States. The government of Turkey has designated Gülen’s group a terrorist organization and claims that its members have stealthily infiltrated Turkish state institutions since the 1980s. Ever since the failed coup, Ankara has engaged in a controversial campaign to remove so-called Gülenists from prominent posts in government and the private sector. More than 50,000 people have been arrested on terrorism charges and are awaiting trial. Another 150,000 public and private sector employees have been summarily fired from their job.

Turkey: Recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital is ‘red line’ for Muslims









 






Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday that US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital would be a “red line” for Muslims. He also warned that such a step would force Ankara to cut diplomatic ties with the Jewish state.

In a speech before the Turkish parliament, Erdogan also said he would call for a meeting with the Organization for Islamic Cooperation to oppose any move recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

US President Donald Trump was expected to weigh in on the sensitive foreign policy matter Monday, but public warnings from allies and private phone calls between world leaders led to the White House delaying its decision.

Turkey has been a vocal critic of the potential recognition.

“If the [current] status of Jerusalem is changed and another step is taken… that would be a major catastrophe,” Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said during a televised press conference on Monday, as quoted by AFP. “It would completely destroy the fragile peace process in the region, and lead to new conflicts, new disputes and new unrest.”

The decision has been postponed once already by the new administration. “The president has been clear on this issue… It’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when,” White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said. Israel regards Jerusalem as its capital, although the international consensus is that the holy city’s status should be determined in peace talks with the Palestinians. Palestinian leaders hope to claim the eastern part of the city as their own capital.

Israel has long insisted that Jerusalem is its capital, but all foreign embassies are located in Tel Aviv. In October, Trump temporarily waived a law requiring the US to relocate its embassy to Jerusalem. The Jerusalem Embassy Act was passed during Bill Clinton’s first term in 1995, but has been waived every six months by US presidents ever since.

Turkish-Israeli relations have faced setbacks in the past. In 2011, Turkey expelled the Israeli ambassador to Ankara and downgraded diplomatic relations after Israel refuses to apologize for the deaths of eight Turkish citizens and a Turkish-American during a raid on a ship carrying aid to Palestinians in Gaza. Full diplomatic relations were not restored until 2016. More recently, Erdogan threatened to cut ties with the Jewish state over its support for an independent Kurdish state.

US trying to ‘make Turkey kneel’ – Erdogan

Erdogan’s remarks come less than a week after Reza Zarrab, a 34-year-old Turkish-Iranian gold trader, pleaded guilty to conspiring to evade US sanctions against Iran. He is set to testify against a Turkish bank official, Mehmet Hakan Atilla, charged with arranging illegal transactions involving US banks. While US prosecutors have charged nine people in the case, only Zarrab and Atilla are known to be in US custody, according to Reuters.  The other defendants include Suleyman Aslan, the former head of Halkbank, and Zafer Caglayan, the former economic minister of Turkey.

Erdogan has repeatedly asked the United States to drop the case and release Zarrab, who is married to Turkish pop star Ebru Gundes. The Turkish government maintains that the case has been fabricated purely for political motives, adding fuel to the fire of the growing dispute between Ankara and Washington.

Commenting on the trial on Sunday, the Turkish president said that Washington is simply trying to discredit Turkey.

“They [US] are trying to punish, judge and discredit us because we did not submit to those scenarios. The scenario and the plot are obvious and they are doing this with their co-operators in our country. They are doing it with FETO [US-based cleric Fethullah Gulen’s movement outlawed in Turkey]. You will not be able to deceive us, you should know that,” Erdogan warned on Sunday, speaking at the provincial congress of his ruling party in the eastern province of Agri, as cited by Hurriyet.

“Our nation should know that these attacks, defamations and games are not independent of each other. All are aimed at the same thing: To make Turkey kneel down and to pit us against each other. They can try as hard as they like but they will not succeed,” he added.

Erdogan warned on Saturday that Turkey could never be made to stand trial in the US.

“My country can never be condemned by virtual courts set up by FETO scoundrels and fake representatives,” Erdogan said during a speech in the eastern province of Kars, adding: “Someone has gotten up and decided they will try my country in their rigged courts. Don’t bother!”

In August, a US grand jury indicted 19 people, including 15 Turkish security officials, in connection with a brawl between pro-Kurdish protesters and Erdogan’s security personnel in Washington, DC, which police described as a “brutal attack” on peaceful protesters. The incident saw several pro-Erdogan supporters push past DC Metropolitan Police to beat, kick and choke unarmed demonstrators, leaving at least 11 injured. The attack took place outside of the Turkish ambassador’s residence during Erdogan’s visit to the United States.

As Americans Eat Turkey, Mainstream Media Quietly Admits US Gov’t Planned False Flags to Start WW3

false flagsfalse flags

As families gather around the dinner table to feast on turkey and express what they are thankful for, dark forces within the US government are plotting their next war and thinking up a way to sell it to the American people. The idea that the United States government would deceive its citizens into accepting a war for profit — by any means necessary — was once only reserved for the fringe and widely regarded as a conspiracy theory by the establishment and their whitewashers in the mainstream media. However, all that has changed.

Even the mainstream media is now reluctantly being forced to admit that the US government plans and has planned false flag attacks on America to be used as a pretext for war. In an article this week, Newsweek reported on the recently declassified files associated with John f. Kennedy that prove the US planned to stage attacks on America using a Soviet aircraft to kick off a conflict with the USSR that arguably would’ve led to the beginning of World War III.

Newsweek’s report focused on the discussion from a meeting on March 22, 1962, held by the “Special Group (Augmented),” which according to an encyclopedia on the Central Intelligence Agency, included Attorney General Robert Kennedy, CIA Director John McCone, National Security Advisor McGeorge Bundy and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Lyman Lemnitzer, detailing the creation of a false flag attack on the United States to be blamed on the Soviets.

According to the documents, the US government wanted to manufacture or obtain Soviet aircraft so they could launch an attack on America or friendly bases and use those attacks as a pretext for war.

According to the previously Top Secret classified documents:

“There is a possibility that such aircraft could be used in a deception operation designed to confuse enemy planes in the air, to launch a surprise attack against enemy installations or in a provocation operation in which Soviet aircraft would appear to attack U.S. or friendly installations in order to provide an excuse for U.S. intervention.”

As Newsweek reported, the memo shows that the department, along with the CIA, considered buying Soviet aircraft to stage the attacks, even getting estimates from the Air Force on how long it would take and how much it would cost to produce the planes domestically and covertly. Costs ranged from $3.5 million to $44 million per plane, depending on the model, most taking several months to build.

The document also outlined the possibility of purchasing such aircraft from non-Soviet Bloc countries that had received planes from the USSR, or from pilots that had defected, instead of building them domestically. The CIA deemed those plans too risky, writing, “The fact that the United States was actively engaged in attempts to defect pilots of supposedly friendly countries might be revealed.”

 

The memo also conceded that the plan would require employing a “maximum-security area.” Otherwise, it would be “most difficult to conceal the existence of such aircraft from the prying eyes of the American press and public.”

 

False flag attacks are covert operations that make it look like an attack was carried out by another group than the group that actually carried them out.

As people continue to believe the warmongering rhetoric from the state, they also continue to forget America’s history of lying to the people to get them to accept war. Indeed, the JFK files have now given us at least two incidents of the United States planning false flag attacks against its own people as a pretext to wage war. And, as the Newsweek report shows, it is getting harder for the mainstream media to ignore or otherwise ridicule and dismiss this very ominous reality.

As TFTP reported last month, the JFK files also reveal the plans for another false flag attack to be blamed on Cuba. In the document which was marked TS for Top Secret, the US military revealed its plans to trick Americans into war with Cuba. The plans were to create and carry out false flag terror attacks against American citizens and use them as propaganda to gain support for the war against Fidel Castro.

In the documents, officials noted that the plans for the attacks were “approved” and the Joint Chiefs merely needed to pick one of the nine “pretexts” to use to trick US citizens into war.

The plans involved killing innocent people and injuring others and making sure these instances would be “widely publicized” as propaganda to start an unjust war.

“We could develop a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington. The terror campaign could be pointed at Cuban refugees seeking haven in the United States. We could sink a boatload of Cubans enroute to Florida (real or simulated),” the document reads.

Notice how callous these monsters sound when talking about drowning a boatload of Cubans—which would have likely contained innocent children—to start a bogus war for profit.

The document continues, “We could foster attempts on the lives of Cuban refugees in the United States even to the extent of wounding in instances to be widely publicized. Exploding a few plastic bombs in carefully chosen spots, the arrest of a Cuban agent and the release of prepared documents substantiating Cuban involvement also would be helpful in projecting the idea of an irresponsible government.”

As you gather with close friends and family on this Thanksgiving, give them a gentle reminder or a well-worded wake up call on how the US government cares not about deceiving its own citizens and killing innocent people so they can send our brothers, sisters, mothers, and fathers off to other countries to die so the fat cats in DC can bolster their war portfolios on Wall Street.

3,000-Year-Old Underwater Castle Discovered in Turkey’s Largest Lake

By  Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

A phenomenal discovery was recently made in Lake Van, located in Turkey. There, scientists believe they have found a 3,000-year-old castle — referred to as the “lost kingdom”. Surprisingly, it appears to be in “amazing” condition. Archaeologists from the Van Yüzüncü Yıl University are now working with divers to explore the ruins further.

Science Alert reports that Tahsin Ceyland is the head of the diving team project. Reportedly, he first traveled to Turkey in search of the  Lake Van Monster. Instead, he found a well-preserved lost city. “There was a rumour that there might be something under the water but most archaeologists and museum officials told us that we won’t find anything,” he told Daily Sabah.

All in all, the castle spans about one kilometer and has walls as high as 10 to 13 feet. The alkaline waters in the lake reduced the rate of decomposition. Researchers believe the 3,000-year-old castle is an Iron Age relic of the lost Urartu civilisation, also called the Kingdom of Van. It is said to have thrived in the region between the 9th and the 6th centuries BCE.

How did the castle get underwater? When it was constructed, water levels of the lake were far lower than they are today. As a result, it was swallowed and forgotten about for hundreds of years. Other parts of the settlement are actually above shoreline, allowing archeologists to study parts of the forgotten city.

“Many civilisations and people had settled around Lake Van,” Ceylan said. “They named the lake the ‘upper sea’ and believed it had many mysterious things. With this belief in mind, we are working to reveal the lake’s ‘secrets’.” Earlier this year, the team discovered a Russian ship believed to have sunk in 1948.

Because the discovery is new, researchers do not yet know how deeply the walls are buried under the sediment of the ocean floor. Additional fieldwork will reveal more answers. The researchers hope to learn more not only about the structure, but the people who lived in it when it was above water.

Ceylan said, “It is a miracle to find this castle underwater. Archaeologists will come here to examine the castle’s history and provide information on it. We have detected the castle’s exact location and photographed it and have made progress in our research. We now believe we have discovered a new area for archaeologists and historians to study.”

Turkey Reconsidering NATO Membership?

Turkey Reconsidering NATO Membership?



by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)



Turkey’s military in the alliance is second only to America in size. President Erdogan nominally sides with Russia and Iran on Syria.



His sincerity is another issue entirely. He’s long coveted annexing northern Syrian and Iraqi territory, especially its oil-rich areas.



His economic ties with Russia and Iran are growing. As long as he supports terrorists in Syria, trilateral relations are fraught with uncertainties. 



His relations with Washington deteriorated significantly since the 2016 aborted coup attempt to unseat him.



He blamed the plot on ex-pat cleric Fethullah Gulen, living in Pennsylvania. Washington refuses to extradite him. No evidence indicates his involvement in what happened. He denies accusations against him.



Erdogan is at odds with Washington over its support for Kurdish fighters in northern Syria. He’s upset over the Trump administration treating him as both a NATO ally and Eurasian adversary.



While playing the Russia and US cards simultaneously, he’s increasingly shifting his allegiance East, away from the West – another body blow to Washington’s imperial agenda.



On Monday, Erdogan’s chief advisor Yalcin Topcu told local media “(i)t is time to reconsider our membership in NATO.” 



“We do not need an organization that displays in every possible way its hostile attitude towards its member. The issue of our presence in that organization should be urgently considered in the Turkish parliament.”



“A traitorously hostile tone sounds in regard to our country and the elected president. It is about the meanness and disgrace shown during the NATO exercises, where the photo of Ataturk and Erdogan’s name were paired with hostile intentions.” 



Erdogan called it “a scandal,” adding “(t)hey know that they cannot stop our country, which is why they are putting us on a target board.” 



“I hope that those who welcomed attacks against us before now understand the real face of the matter, as Ataturk was also included.”



“The issue is not a personal or party issue. The target is Turkey and the Turkish nation.” Erdogan rebuffed NATO secretary general Stoltenberg’s apology, adding:



“Yesterday, you have witnessed the impudence at NATO exercises in Norway. There are some mistakes that cannot be committed by fools but only by vile people,” showing “a distorted point of view that we have observed in NATO for a while.”



“This matter cannot be covered over with a simple apology.”



Topcu added “(i)t’s time to reconsider our membership in NATO. An organization that shows its hostile attitude to its member in every way.”



He called alliance behavior toward Ankara “brutal and dishonorable.” On Sunday, Erdogan threatened to remove US radar systems from Turkey if Washington fails to deliver F-35 warplanes purchased.



In response to Turkey buying Russian S-400 air defense systems, the Trump administration threatened to renege on the F-35 deal.



Will strained Turkish/US relations rupture? Turkey has been a NATO member since October 1951.



Will Erdogan’s anger over US treatment of Ankara get him to leave the alliance after all these years?



If so, it would be a major blow to US hegemonic ambitions.

Turkey authorizes the construction of a church

Turkey has authorized the construction of an Assyrian church in Istanbul.
This will be the first construction of a place for Christian worship since
the fall of Ottoman Empire at the end of the First World War.

Turkish law prohibits the construction of churches even though the country
provides shelter to several Christian patriarchs.

However, several years ago, a derogation was granted to re-establish
liturgic celebration in an old Church.

Turkish law has also applied in the Northern part of Cyprus, since Turkish
occupation in 1974. Deceitfully, official tourist leaflets present
Christian places of worship, now derelict, as “castles”.

By way of comparison, since President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan came to power,
more than 9 000 mosques have been built in Turkey.

The nuncio (Pope’s ambassador) appointed to Ankara by the Pope is not
registered as Monseigneur Paul Russell, but as His Excellency, Ambassador
Paul Russell.

Erdogan’s chief adviser calls for Turkey’s NATO membership to be reconsidered – local media

Tensions between the military bloc and Turkey escalated last week when Turkey’s founding leader, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, and current president Recep Tayyip Erdogan were depicted as “enemies” during NATO drills in Norway. Erdogan said the incident was an attack targeting “Turkey and the Turkish nation.”

What [NATO] did is a scandal,” the Turkish leader told a ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) provincial congress in the eastern province of Bayburt on Sunday, Hurriyet reported. “They know that they cannot stop our country, which is why they are putting us on a target board. I hope that those who welcomed attacks against us before now understand the real face of the matter, as Ataturk was also included.”

The issue is not a personal or party issue. The target is Turkey and the Turkish nation,” he noted.

Today there is a Turkey that cannot be compared with 15 years ago in every field – from the economy to the defense industry and from trade to diplomacy. There is now a Turkey that produces its own weapons and tanks,” Erdogan warned.
