Failed Turkish coup led by ex-military attaché to Israel – surprise, surprise

Plus, a challenge to Ian Greenhalgh

1-zio-coupBy Kevin Barrett, Veterans Today Editor

Senior Editor’s note:  I was hoping we might have a genuine controversy, rather than Kevin looking for a replacement for Fester and more inane shouting matches.

For those of you who notice, the article Kevin uses is Israeli as though they, for some reason, were trying to let Erdogan off the hook.  I can only think of one reason for that and not the one Kevin is selling.

Kevin calling Turkey under Islamist Erdogan democratic is patently offensive.  Maybe Kevin can’t see 12,000 ISIS trucks either or believes tens of thousands of terrorists move easily through Turkey because it is such an informal place.  I have been there too and not on a government financed vacation.

Kevin also misses the ethnic cleansing of the Kurds.  How can the leader of a democracy kill so many reporters and arrest or fine anyone who criticizes him?

We see intelligence on a daily basis showing Turkey involved in terrorism in Syria and Iraq.  We know the deals Erdogan and his friends have with Barzani.  I
helped pen the lawsuit against Erdogan for his personal involvement in stealing 38 manufacturing plants from Aleppo.

As for Kevin’s claim that, because someone was an attache to Israel they are an Israeli spy we might note that Jim Hanke, Kevin’s fellow editor, was an attache to Israel and is hardly a fan of Zionism.  What Kevin fails to realize is that an attache is tasked, primarily, with spying.  Hanke carried covert nuclear detection equipment into Dimona as attache.  The rest of this is an attempt to “dazzle” with political pseudo-expertise best left to Gwyneth Todd, who is a real expert on Turkish politics.

Calling Turkey under Erdogan democratic or anything other than a terror state, based on massive evidence presented daily on VT, is an offense against nature.  Erdogan has had years to stand up to Israel “once.”  There are thousands of Turkish troops operating inside Syria helping the people there enjoy the fruits of self determination before killing them. Much of this article is simply meaningless and I am disappointed. g

Is anybody out there surprised that Israel was behind the coup attempt in Turkey?

People hypnotized by the anti-Erdogan propaganda flooding the alternative media … people with zero knowledge of recent Turkish history, and/or zero sympathy for majority of the Turkish people’s aspirations for a more democratic, Islamic, powerful, and genuinely independent country … such people might well be surprised.

But I wasn’t.

It was obvious to those of us with a basic understanding of who’s who in Turkish politics.

People like my VT colleague Ian Greenhalgh seem not to know that Erdogan’s political enemies in Turkey are far more pro-Zionist than Erdogan himself is. This is “Turkish Studies 101” stuff.

So for the benefit of those of you who are unfamiliar with Turkey, here is a rundown of the four basic currents:

  1. Erdogan’s party (AKP): These are the corrupt, opportunistic “moderate pro-democracy Islamists” who are willing to compromise with the devil as part of their “long game” attempt to build up Turkey’s power, independence, and democratic Islamic identity. It is taken for granted that once they amass enough power, presumably a few decades down the line, they will liberate Palestine. And before you criticize them for their corruption and compromising, remember that “honest, principled democratic Islamists” have been ruthlessly suppressed and murdered by…
  2. The Zio-Kemalist Deep State (ZKDS). These are the people who have been running the country, from their base at the top levels of the Turkish Army, since the Rothschild-sponsored Donmeh Jew Attaturk culturally genocided the nation in the 1920s. The ZKDS is closely tied to Israel and the Operation Gladio side of NATO. They run the Turkish heroin industry. They are the neocon “Turkish-American Council” that Sibel Edmonds revealed helped stage 9/11. Historically, whenever Turkish democracy starts to blossom, and Turks elect pro-democracy Muslims, the ZKDS stages a brutal coup and imprisons and/or murders the pro-democracy leaders. The last several coup attempts, however, have failed, due to adroit maneuvering by the AKP and its actual and provisional allies.
  3. Fetullah Gulen (FG). Gulen is classic “controlled opposition.” He is a pure creature of Mossad-CIA. He poses as an Islamist in order to divide-and-conquer the Turkish Islamic democracy movement. In fact, he is an agent of Israel. So when Erdogan accuses Gulen of being behind the coup attempt, he is in fact accusing Israel.
  4. The honest, principled democratic Islamists (HPDI). Unfortunately, this species is always on the verge of extinction, since it is ruthlessly hunted down and slaughtered by the ZKDS…and the AKP and FG aren’t too friendly either. Such people have learned to be extremely kind, gentle, and careful. A shining example today is Alparsan Kuytul and his Furkan movement. Kuytul opposes the war on Syria, denounces takfiris (ISIS etc.) and their Saudi sponsors, and generally speaks truth to power, putting principle ahead of expediency. His movement represents the real future of Turkey, if it has one.

So…OBVIOUSLY this this week’s coup attempt represented FG and ZKDS trying to overthrow the AKP. The question is, why – and why now?

Ian Greenhalgh writes: “Firstly, this ‘coup’ can only be assessed as part of a much wider geopolitical game that encompasses the entire Middle East, the European Union, NATO, the USA, Russia and of course, the Islamic State.”

Bingo! But Greenhalgh doesn’t offer any framework for understanding the coup’s relation to that geopolitical game.

Let’s start with the observation that Israel’s top man in Turkey, Gen. Ozturk, tried to overthrow Turkish (Islamic) democracy, in exactly the way that Israel’s top man in Egypt, Gen. al-Sisi, overthrew Egyptian (Islamic) democracy.


*First, as mentioned, even the corrupt, watered-down, compromising and compromised Islamic democracy of people like Erdogan and Morsi represents a long-term strategic threat to Israel. The top long-term strategic priority of the Zionists and their NATO lackeys is to prevent Sunni-majority countries from ever freeing themselves from imperial-Zionist control and becoming Iran-style Islamic democratic republics. People like Erdogan and Morsi threaten to nudge their countries, baby step by baby step, in that direction. The end game of all such activism is a neo-caliphate uniting many contiguous Muslim-majority countries—presumably a “caliphate” that mixes theocracy with democracy, as in Iran’s Islamic Republic. Such empowerment of Middle Eastern Muslims would quickly put Israel out of business.

*Second, just as Zionist Empire overthrew Saddam and Qaddafi not for their very real crimes against humanity but for their good actions (their empowerment of their own people), the Zionists also want to overthrow Erdogan not because he foolishly let himself be led by the nose into the Syrian quagmire, but because he is threatening to extract himself from that quagmire and repair ties with Iran and Russia. For details, see the Crescent-Online article “Desperate Turkey turns toward Iran” and note Erdogan’s recent move toward rapprochement with Russia. Israel wants to keep the Syria conflict going. Erdogan may be about to help end it.

So that is the short version of the “who-what-why.”

As for Greenhalgh’s defacing, I mean prefacing, my article with a lot of incoherent gibberish, I will attempt to parse and answer the questions not answered above.

*Greenhalgh writes: “Erdogan, along with his financial backers and allies in Israel, the USA, Qatar and Saudi Arabia is responsible for the creation of IS…”

IS was created by the US military and its Israeli handlers in Camp Bucca, where “Caliph” al-Baghdadi was held almost five years (not one year as the official story claims), brainwashed, probably microchipped, and unleashed as a de facto Zionist-NATO robot. Erdogan had nothing to do with this, though he did later try to opportunistically exploit the situation. Greenhalgh ignores that Turkey is, unfortunately, still a province of the Zio-NATO empire, not a truly independent player. Erdogan didn’t make any of the major decisions regarding ISIS and Syria. He was lured into a trap, or more likely ordered to march into the trap. When Turkey expels all US bases and personnel, along with the Americans’ Zionist handlers — which can’t happen soon enough as far as I am concerned — THEN we can talk about “Turkey’s responsibility” for its foreign policy. But as of today, when it acts alongside NATO, it is merely following orders. So it is NATO and its Zionist masters first, and their occasionally recalcitrant puppet Erdogan only secondly, who are “evil, inhuman creatures with the blood of millions of Kurds, Syrian and Iraqis on their hands.” 

Greenhalgh: “The Caliphate that Kevin talks about reminds us of the Oded Yinon plan to create a Greater Israel.” This is beyond nonsensical. The Caliphate is an institution that is just as central to Sunni Islam (and Shia Islam, but with a different interpretation) as the Papacy and the Church of Rome are central to Catholicism. The Caliphate has existed, in various imperfect forms, since 632 a.d. The vast majority of the world’s Muslims want it officially re-established, just as the vast majority of Catholics would want the Papacy and the Church of Rome re-established if those institutions had been destroyed by enemies of Christianity.

As a 2007 World Public Opinion poll found: “Two-thirds (of Muslims polled worldwide) would even like to “unify all Islamic counties into a single Islamic state or caliphate.”

So the Caliphate is absolutely necessary and integral to the religion of Islam, and despite decades of brainwashing by the Zionist West, the vast majority of Muslims knows it. For details, please read the terrific recent book by Reza Pankhurst, The Inevitable Caliphate: A History of the Struggle for Global Islamic Union, 1924 to the Present.  (Previewed here.)

A neo-caliphate is strongly desired by the people of the Muslim-majority countries. Therefore there can be no real democracy in that part of the world without one.

Greater Israel, on the contrary, is strongly opposed by virtually everyone in the Middle East. So is Lesser Israel, for that matter. So democracy in that region requires the termination of these genocidal, apartheid projects.

Let’s end with a couple of questions for Ian Greenhalgh.

*Ian, do you agree that peoples have the right to self-determination? Please answer yes or no.

*If your answer is yes, how can you oppose a caliphate (i.e. a political union of Muslim-majority territories) that is ardently desired by the people in question?

*And if you oppose this project, over the objections of the people concerned, do you support the continued use of lies and violence to prevent it from coming to fruition?

*Finally, do you agree with my analysis that the coup forces in Turkey are, to say the least, even more accommodating of the Zionists than Erdogan and his AKP? Yes or no?  If your answer is no, what evidence can you cite?

I would be happy to discuss this with you on my radio show. Please contact me at TruthJihad(at)gmail[dot]com and we will set up an interview ASAP.

    Erdogan benefited of the “coupe” because now he got an excuse to clean the country of the real opposition (read: real muslims). Erdogan himself is a crypto jew. He has encarceled numerous journalists and writers who have revealed this. One example is Ergün Poyraz, eventually sentenced to 29 years in prison. Poyraz claims that Erdoğan came to power as part of a Zionist conspiracy devised by Turkey’s JİTEM, a secret government intelligence unit.
    JİTEM is believed to be behind many bombings, attacks and assassinations, and is believed to be linked to Ergenekon, which was part of the CIA’s Operation Gladio.

    Regarding Gordon’s preface: A Turkish or Egyptian military attaché to Israel is NOT the same as a US military attache to Israel. The US military is the least Zionist-controlled American institution (which isn’t saying much – the Zios completely owned it on 9/11). But the Turkish and Egyptian militaries are both Zionist-supported kleptocracies occupying and looting their own countries in cahoots with the Israelis (and Americans). Al-Sisi (a Moroccan Jewish lifelong Mossad operative) and Ozturk (face of the Zio-American occupation of Turkey) are traitors to their countries, as are the militaries they represent; whereas Jim Hanke, like a fair number of US military guys, is an honest American patriot.

    I notice that neither Ian nor Gordon answered my simple yes-no questions, nor has either of them denied that elements of the US military & policy apparatus and their neocon Zionist “Oded Yinon” handlers – not Erdogan – created ISIS. If they think that Turkey, where throngs of people risk their lives standing up to tanks to protect the civilian government they elected, is not a democracy, while the US “Killary vs. Trump” dog and pony show is, I would have to disagree.

    Great article Kevin. I agree with everything you’ve stated.

  4. Beydety  July 19, 2016 at 4:48 am

    It’s very likely that CIA asset Fetullah Gulen, planned this with the usual suspects. And maybe Russia informed sultan of what their plans were. Although I hate the sultan for what he did to Syria, but I’m glad that terrorist Gulen and Co failed cause it would’ve been bad news for Syria had he succeeded.
    Good article Mr Barrett.

  5. Edward Dodge  July 18, 2016 at 2:33 pm

    FWIW, Dr. Barrett, Sibel Edmonds from Newsbud, and a native Turk, agrees with you. She seems also to be fingering Fatullah Gulan’s network.

  6. Dr. Abu-Bakr Susta  July 18, 2016 at 1:25 pm

    Wow! Surprisingly great stuff, Kevin. However, disagreeing in part with both Ian Greenhalgh & you are F. William Engdahl and Dr. Joseph P. Farrell.

    Engdahl ascribes sponsorship of the Erdogan coup to CIA. See “Behind The CIA Desperate Turkey Coup Attempt” By F. William Engdahl 18 July 2016 at (copy & paste into your browser).

    Farrell mostly ascribes sponsorship of the Erdogan coup AND 9/11 to the Fascist/Nazi mafia. NOT to RKM. However, CIA may be a spin-off of the Gehlen Org and/or the Fascist/Nazi mafia (not RKM).

    An interesting possibility is that RKM and the Fascist/Nazi mafia may have been working together — but not on the Erdogan coup, since it was so incompetently executed.

    As per Engdahl, the result of the failed coup may be that Erdogan moves even closer to Russia, which has a more democratic-autonomy-promoting foreign policy than does the U.S.

  7. brabantian  July 18, 2016 at 12:26 pm

    Interesting that Kevin Barrett’s theory of Erdogan as semi-good ‘Muslim Brotherhoodie’ still works, even if one sees the coup as a staged fake … Barrett could argue that staging a fake coup was necessary to ‘clean out the crypto-Zionists’

    Too much evidence it was fake, e.g., all those identical Turkish flags on sticks magically appearing on streets after midnight

    So Kevin & others say friend of Israel Erdogan has a secret plan … others say friend of Israel Putin has a secret plan … whilst still others say friend of Israel Trump has a secret plan … So everyone is a friend of Israel, but everyone has a secret plan to go against the Zionists … some day … ha!
