Turkey is a special case no doubt , for so long it has been trained by the world order. A country that is neither western nor eastern , and that is not both also. A country that is not really Muslim and not non Muslim . A country that has chosen –compelled or not – to loose its identity and to become hanging in nowhere .
After opting for relinquishing its eastern identity and its religious belonging , Turkey did not become for this much a western country , it remained on the waiting list of the European establishment .The European countries will not let Turkey in nor would give Turkey a categorical No concerning its joining the European community , a No that would have made Turkey look for other alternatives . No, Turkey was to remain in the middle of nowhere waiting for others to decide its fate and this is maybe what made leader .- late PM Najem el Din Arbakan – start -in the eighties- in Turkey -an Islamic party with Islamic tendencies to give his country the required identity and orientation .
Meanwhile Turkey is still waiting by the door of the European establishment to join the assembly of the great Europeans but is still denied entrance. It is probably by following such policy that the world order succeeded in subjugating a country that was supposed to be sovereign , for Turkey was considered to be a good catch, and in order not to have this subjugation restricted to people in power, the world order extended it to the whole of society and for this a strong powerful army was needed , an army that could have a final say in many things in the secular country that Turkey has become.
Through the army a whole population was thus subjugated with the exception of few like the Kurds and maybe some other groups . Turkey –therefore –became the dutiful servant of the masters in power , and it rendered great services to these masters, not the least of them was serving the state of Israel since it was the first Muslim country not only to establish relations with Israel but to take Israel fully in charge including full cooperation at all levels , diplomatic , military , intelligent , economic, cultural and other . This relation goes back to 1949 . Like twin brothers Israel and Turkey grew together and learned from each other and developed these unbreakable ties under the supervision of the super powers . The empowered Turkish army made sure this relation would not be questioned at any level. It maintained it and guarded it against all odds .
Turkey has remained this way over many decades , it grew to become an oppressive power but-in no way -an independent one .It is a fact that there is no admittance to the European circle because this is not the way the world order could be served best . Has Turkey undergone an awakening that brought Erdogan to power and alienated the Turkish military power ? Not at all . Things that started moving with Arbakan were back to their previous state when Erdogan became ruler, and what is required from Turkey now is not to remain the secular military aggressive strong ally of Israel but to become the Sunni Muslim Ottoman of the late Empire, a power that can polarize Arabs and Muslims -of a certain sect- under the banner of a Palestine that is not exclusive of Israel . All this because the scheme of the world order had changed from promoting secularism checked by a strong army to promoting Islamism attached to a certain sect .
It is the future and safety of Israel –the long term irreplaceable ally of Turkey – that required such a change as well as the tug of war with powerful and strong Iran –the real threat to Israel and USA. It became necessary to draw Iran into sectarian conflicts in order to assure the safety of Israel. For this there was no need for a secular army but for a moderate Islam that uses fanatic thugs who are trained to be sectarian haters .These are the thugs of multiple nationalities that we are meeting right now in Syria, introduced by thousands from Turkey after being trained and armed by the CIA and the Turkish army . This whole trip of Turkey and Islam and Arab springs and Syria and Palestine is nothing but a war declared on the Islamic Republic of Iran and on its allies : the Lebanese Resistance and Syria.. There is no Islamic awakening in Turkey , there is just a change in the agenda of the World order
