Erdoganís caliphate dream put in motion in Turkey
Turkish Minute ^ | November 27, 2018 | Abdullah Bozkurt

Further evidence was revealed in Turkey earlier this month accentuating the long-held ambitions of the corrupt President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan to steer the Muslim world, or Ummah as it is called in religious discourse, into sort of a caliph-like leadership position. Away from the spotlight, his close advisors convened a gathering in Istanbul of Islamists from various countries to cultivate and promote the idea of an Islamic union to be spearheaded by the Turkish president as early as 2023. Not surprisingly the Muslim Brotherhood’s international network has been tapped as the main conveyer for fulfilling the Turkish leader’s dreams of creating proxies all around the world to gain leverage and achieve his own political goals.

The remarks of Erdoğan’s close confidant Nureddin Nebati – a former lawmaker who is now working for the government as deputy minister of Turkey’s Finance and Treasury Ministry, which is headed by Berat Albayrak, Erdoğan’s son-in-law – summed up the real motivation behind this brainstorming event that was officially described as the “Islamic Union Congress” in the megacity of İstanbul. Unfortunately, the Islamic world is in disarray, but the Turkish nation was offering Erdoğan as an imam to lead all Muslims, and he cannot be defeated because Allah backs him, Nebati said in a carefully worded speech while comparing the Turkish president to the lead bead in the Islamic tespih (misbaha, or prayer beads that are used by Muslims to recite and count their prayers, which are in a sense similar to the rosary used by Catholics and the japa mala by Buddhists and Hindus). According to Nebati, Erdoğan is the promised and expected leader to bring all Muslim nations together just like fixing disjointed prayer beads in a tespih and bringing them around the lead bead.

The most worrisome part is that Erdoğan’s ..

the Istanbul event, which was held at the Wow hotel near Atatürk Airport Nov. 1-3, 2018. The meeting was financed by the Istanbul metropolitan municipality and other district municipalities controlled by Erdoğan’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP). National flag carrier Turkish Airlines as well as state-lenders Vakıf and Ziraat pitched in to cover the expenses for the guests who came from 28 countries including Russia, India, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Sudan, Nigeria, Malaysia and Kazakhstan.

"The Gathering" discussing the merger of the Islamist elements of the "Dark Side".

Is this an eye opener? For even those who already came to a conclusion about what Erdogan's aims are?

And it should be obvious to all why Saudi’s Arabia is under attack from Turkey, NYT, Washington Post and assorted idiots in the media and Democrat Party. No surprise here; this has long been an ambition shared by many. And yes, Turkey does have advanced US weaponry including jets and nuclear weapons.

There are two Turkey’s, the conservative parts are inland and remote, where few tourists ever venture to. The coastal regions are vaguely muslim. There’s a call to prayer, though I’ve never seen anyone stop what they were doing and go pray. Sadly Erdogan’s actions have been driving tourists away, which will make all the regions more isolated. My Aunt and Uncle are in the process of selling their beach house in Antalya, though its unlikely they will get anything near the price they could have gotten some years back before the tourist slump.

The only ping lists I keep are the Syria and Texas ping lists. The Texas ping list is kept by at least 3 people that I know of.

Often the Syrian ping list has a gray area with Turkey. Almost all articles about Turkey, really relate to Syria also. I keep a running record of articles that I use on Twitter or FR, but it is not by category, only by sequence of posting. Somewhat by date. But the list can be searched for key words. It is useful to refresh my memory.

Thank you for the perspective. In my opinion (I’ve never been to Turkey, never expect to go), the Islamist and their terrorists are destroying Turkey. Economically, culturally and Judicially.

And the destruction is contageous. Erdogan is committed to spreading it. It is clear that is his Neo Ottoman wet dream.

Good to know! I know -or believed - that the USA used to hold nukes there at the US airbase... so they’ve been removed? That would be good news ...
