Turkey Welcomes The Exiled Muslim Brotherhood Terror Leaders From Qatar…

Just in case anyone was fuzzy on the alliances here, or the motivations of TurkeyQatar, under pressure from the UAE, Saudi Arabia and Gulf Council to stop the terror support, exiled the first group of Muslim Brotherhood extremists.  Erdogan, Obama’s NATO BFF, lays down the red carpet welcome….

TURKEY– Turkey would welcome senior figures from Egypt’s outlawed Muslim Brotherhood after they were asked to leave Qatar under pressure from other Gulf Arab states, Turkish media quoted President Tayyip Erdogan as saying late on Monday.

Obama Erdogan - Turkey

A senior Brotherhood official based in London said on Saturday that Qatar had asked seven senior figures from the movement to leave the country after its neighbors pressed it to stop backing the Islamists.

Senior Brotherhood figures would be welcome to come to Turkey if they wished to do so, Turkish television stations quoted Erdogan as telling reporters on his plane back from an official visit to Qatar on Monday.

Qatar and Turkey were the only regional countries to back the Brotherhood after Egypt’s army toppled Islamist President Mohammad Mursi last year following mass protests against him.

Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and other Gulf Arab states, in contrast, have showered Egypt’s new rulers with billions of dollars. They see the Muslim Brotherhood as an existential threat to their monarchies.

Egypt has declared the Brotherhood a terrorist movement. The Brotherhood says it is a peaceful group. (read more)

Bottom line = Turkey supports Sunni Islamic Extremism, and ISIS.

    “Under his [Erdogan] guidance, thousands of websites have been blocked in Turkey. Twitter and YouTube were banned in mid-March, after unknown users (believed to be members of the Gulen movement, a secretive organization with deep roots in Turkey’s police and judiciary, headed by Fethullah Gulen, a moderate Islamic cleric based in Pennsylvania) posted recordings of private conversations between Mr. Erdogan, his son and senior members of the AKP allegedly discussing kickbacks and favourtism in business dealings with AKP supporters. In one recording posted to YouTube, senior officials, including Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu and Hakan Fidan, head of the MIT, Turkey’s spy agency, are caught discussing the possibility of carrying out a false flag operation in which missiles would be fired at Turkey from Syria. Turkey would blame the Syrian regime and invoke article 5 of the Nato agreement, forcing the U.S. to take action.

    Do we need any more evidence that NATO is a joke? I think not. The idea that NATO member Turkey is a part of the West is beyond ridiculous.

    I am on vacation in Turkey right now. Hard to imagine the very secular areas I am in being forced to change: Turks are running around in western clothing, not heeding any call to prayers, smoking and drinking and getting along with non-Turks (Turkey used to be a favorite vacation spot of Israelis — and my Turkish neighbor’s cousin married a Jewish fellow in Istanbul — with the usual 3-day wedding reception for 1,000 people!). I am not so sure Erdogan will be able to contain/restrain everything he has done so far. Of course, look no farther than Iran for the counter argument,

      Thank Kemal Atatürk for the secular state – and the Turkish military for enforcing it. I wouldn’t say Erdogan will lose or hold on to the reins, the Turkish military is charged with maintaining the secular nation-state status of Turkey – sort of the 800-pound political gorilla in the room. The Turkish military has a long history of keeping moderate Muslims moderate and the religion out of the board room and with Turkeys burgeoning and mutually beneficial relationship with Russia I don’t see the military letting Islamic revisionists turn the country back to the 7th century. It may be a messy process but if the military stays true to its secular charge the main thing i’m seeing Erdogan has to worry about is not irritating them.

        Erdogan successfully ran an anti-corruption campaign and the first thing he did was to go after the top-ranking military leaders who were all on the take (or alleged to be). This neutering of the military has allowed him to enact more and more draconian laws and regulations, and he has appointed his friends to lead the military. THe problem with Turkey in my opinion for Erdogan is that the state is so secular, and lives a great deal from tourism, that any scaling back of freedoms will eventually affect tourists, who will stop going to visit.

          Used to be a military/political saying that every corporal has a Field Marsh;all’s baton in his backpack. I’m betting that, considering how the upper ranks of their military are picked,Erdogan’s moves seem to be an attempt to solidify his position – didn’t work for Sadat and no guarantee it will for him.
          Turkey’s energy use has gone up faster than Europe’s over the last few years and is expected to double by 2025. Turkey’s a main and major hub of petro transport from Russia, the Caspian and the Mideast, lots of pipelines going through it and more are planned. The Russian and Caspian oil tankers are boxed in by Turkey’s control of the Bosporus while Iraqi and Azerbaijan ship petro out through the Turkish port of Ceyhan. This traffic will only grow and none of the players, especially Turkey, want to see the calm, peaceful and profitable throughput disrupted. I’m betting that Turkey sees the new-and-improved Russia as a more willing partner and player than the US, one more willing to be a ‘friend’ than the US.
          Turkey is already negotiating with Russia to have Russia build some nuke reactors ‘for power generation’ (now there’s a catchy phrase) and ‘research’, just like Iran is. Turkey wants to decrease its dependence on gas/oil for energy and so far only the Russians have stepped to the front with low-cost nuke systems. I’m thinking that between the use of Turkey as a petro shipping hub and relatively low-cost power production Turkey will manage to increase its tourist and manufacturing economies. Russsia will do all it can to keep Turkey in the $$$-loop and protect it from the perfidious West and the insidious Muslim far-right. The US let Turkey slip away after the USSR dissolved, not believing that Russia would reconstitute and expand as far and as fast as it has. I see Obama as having delivered the area into Russian/Iranian hands through his actions and inactions while an aging and effete Europe has become so dependent upon the Russian petro teat. Turkey is a Russian crown jewel. We’ll see how this plays out.

              Just partially. Back in the day I remember being told that whoever was the leader of a given Mideast country would first move to ensure, as well as he could, the loyalty of the military (HEY BHO, you lisnin’?) but he’d always keep his eye first and foremost on the tank park as the only time those tanks would move, other than a scheduled training exercise or to repel an invasion, was when the generals were in an active coup. The outside powers played these coups for years and now it’s become an part oftheir political process. I guess that (I’m being generous here) the reason the MSM’s ignoring so much of the background and what’s going on in the background is the US public’s become entertainment-oriented that anything that doesn’t have a music background and Baywatch eye-candy – not to mention lasts over 10 minutes without a bathroom/snack break – is not going to be aired. The Russians and Iranians are nowhere near done with the issues in the area, their aims and strategies are the same; about the only differences I can see between them are the Iranians have longer prayer breaks and the Russians have better booze. Watch closely for further developments there.

        I read that Turkey is the second largest customer for Russian nat gas. This may help explain the Qatar Syria connection and ISIS support to obtain a secondary source. This may also be part of a plan for the US to isolate Russia.

          Russia has a huge fleet in the Black Sea – why it invaded Sevastopol. That fleet cannot get out into the Med without passing through the Bosporus and Dardanelles – both controlled by Turkey – and an ever increasing number of tankers (Russian and otherwise) are passing through those choke-points carrying Russian petro products. Russia, Iraq and Azerbaijan all ship lots of oil/gas through Turkey where it’s shipped onward to Europe. Russia and Iran and some Gulf states are planning huge pipelines through Turkey and Syria I’m betting that there are a few gas liquification plants in the offing too. This is HUGE business. Turkey’s increased its use of gas for energy production over the last few years while Europe stagnated but is dealing with Russia to have Russia build it some nuke power plants – win/win for all concerned. I’m looking at Turkey becoming an even bigger Russian partner as its one petro port won’t be big enough to support increased Russian/other gas and oil transshipment, especially when Russia and others starts delivering liquified natural gas to Latin and South America.
          Note that neither the Russian SIGINT station at Latakia nor its porting facilities at Tartus have been hit by these insidious ISIS rebels. You’d think that such religiously pure fighters would jump at the chance to deal a blow to the original Great Satan. Who’s isolating who?

  5. “Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and other Gulf Arab states, in contrast, have showered Egypt’s new rulers with billions of dollars. They see the Muslim Brotherhood as an existential threat to their monarchies.”

    They see the Muslim Brotherhood as an existential threat to their monarchies because they are – as is ISIS (same/same.) These radical animals believe that the most “successful” amongst them is also the most favored by Allah. They would definitely see the monarchs of the other Middle Eastern countries as competitors for Allah’s favor and seek to topple them. This belief is also why the gub-ment best be keeping an eye on Al Qaeda while focusing on ISIS. ISIS has displaced Al Qaeda, for the time being, as the most successful jihadist group, ergo more favored by Allah. Either Al Qaeda will stop denouncing them as “too violent” (yeah, right – they’re probably green with envy) and join ranks with them OR they will ramp up their own violence and frequency of attacks.

      It used to be that the Sunnis taught that God ordered the Muslims to obey their rulers, even if they had serious flaws. It’s how they justify all the Muslim leader’s actions since Abu Bakr and force any Muslim to obey them once they are in power (you can read about Yazid and his homosexual acts as well as sexual acts with his own daughter). So their goal has always been to get into power and then use this claim to force support from the Muslims. And they use a verse from the Quran (they use verses to justify anything they want): O you who believe! Obey God and obey the Messenger and those having authority among you. 4:59. So it’s interesting they have changed this basic ideology from obeying those having authority among you (as long as the basic rights of Muslims are allowed: praying, fasting, etc.) to only obeying those enacting their twisted shariah law. So the Gulf monarchies have ruled based on the old understanding of that verse, but the new understanding seriously threatens their “legitimacy”. I think that’s why so many of those places have such a schizophrenic government. They want to modernize and Westernize but they must maintain some sort of Muslim appearance to maintain that “legitimacy”. But with this new understanding, none of those Gulf countries meet the “ISIS standard”. Jordan is in deep trouble as well. It’s a hotbed of repressed jihadism that will likely be rolled over in the sham/levant spread of ISIS.

    America’s top leader, B. Hussein Obama, a devout Christian…perhaps…wants to create a Middle East environment where Iran has a nuke bomb or two, and Turkey gets riled up to join others in going after those nasty Jews, presently dwelling in a place called Israel. As ISIS destroys the land boundaries previously known as Iraq, so do others wish to do the same to those nasty Jews living on land that rightfully doesn’t belong to them…

    Meanwhile, Russia seeks to advance its influence to those countries where Russians can go for vacation when winter sets in over the Motherland. Time to party!

    Obama will leave office knowing he has made many American men wealthy, the Hollywood elite truly love him, and Michele plans on her personal life distant from this abuser of a husband. He intends to hang with his buds, circle round his person with people who wish to continue their worship, and fundraisers where he can bring in more cash to use for his needs. All will be good if he can get to the end of his term. He has his priorities, not yours, but his!

    Listen to the drumbeat for Hillary. We need a woman president, certainly not a competent president, just a woman in this office.

    Recall the dems claiming there is a “war on women” as they point to the other political side.

    Now think about this: How about “women at war with men” being the real game?

    Tricky use of language, even Joe Biden would understand and appreciate such games in between reading the Merchant of Venice!

    I can see Obama hooking up with one of the Kardashians after he leaves office, maybe Bruce if his transformation goes according to plan.

    Dark days amigos!
