One of the worst things happening to Islam is the role invested in Turkey using it to lead the Muslim world which can no more be lead by Saudia since the old kingdom has grown tired and weary unable to cope with the new challenges coming from all sides . It is not by magic that Turkey turned from Muslim to secular and is turning again from secular to Muslim, and not by magic that many changes were made in accordance with this role, in education -and so on …and not by magic that Erdogan was marketed by the NATO countries as an alternative and a model to Muslim leadership, and not by magic that he could defeat his opponent Arbakan of the Felicity Party who had started orientating Turkey towards Islam .
Turkey was in fact one of the first countries to have witnessed a false flag revolution that brought to power the AKP – with Erdogan at its head . Alienated from its Islamic identity and from its eastern belonging, and isolated from its natural cultural environment, Turkey had been promised – in vain- the European heaven in compensation for this loss but the time seemed long before Turkey could be admitted to the European club; and between becoming a European troll or turning into a potential Muslim leader the choice was quickly made in conformity with the western interests .
In order to operate this desired change- – Turkey would have first to deny its recent history built on the glory of secularism and then connect –artificially-to a glorious past that could only be found in history books.
Awakening the sick Ottoman from his deep slumber was not easy and introducing him to the Arab and Muslim world could not be achieved without embracing the Palestinian cause . From here came the multiple scenarios starting from the Davos staged incident between Peres and Erdogan and not ending with the Mavi Marmara slaughter where nine Turkish Martyrs – among peace activists – were offered at the alter of the Palestinian cause turning Erdogan into a real hero .
By becoming in charge of the Palestinian cause and without jeopardizing his relations with Israel or NATO, Erdogan promoted himself as a leader and promoted Turkey as a model of Islamic rule polarizing Muslims on the basis of sectarianism driving them away from Iran and from the victorious resistance of Hizbullah. This also meant launching this bloody war on Syria introducing training and supplying the thugs in charge of destroying the neighboring country .
He who attended the conference of the AKP of Erdogan – held in Ankara lately- must have witnessed the truth of the Turkish situation . Of course the major attendance was that of Muslim brothers from most Arab countries represented mainly by President Mursi of Egypt and Khaled Mish’al of HAMAS . The HAMAS official presence was most important to give the anti Israel flavor while Europe was hardly present at all to keep the Islamic color of the reunion .
The victory over the USSR at the hands of the Mudjahideen in Afghanistan is not to be easily forgotten by US and NATO allies. Many similar victories seem to be in store for those who can smartly use a so called moderate Muslim leader and manipulate through him the adepts of divisive sectarian Islam while Turkey and the Turks will remain in limbo alternating between east and west reaping more indecision and instability than reward and leadership .
