Russian Intervention Shatters Turkey’s Neo-Ottomanist Dreams For Syria

Oct 20th, 2015 | By

Russia’s recent military intervention in Syria along with Iran, aimed at propping up Assad’s rule, as well as its airstrikes that target not only ISIS but also the so-called moderates supported by Turkey (which in reality are also Islamist terrorist groups), have transformed the face of the conflict. Russia’s reassertion of its involvement in the Middle East, and its recent incursions into Turkish airspace, threaten to spark a Russia-NATO clash on the Turkey-Syria border. With its naval bases in Western Syria, Russia could interfere with Turkish and other vessels along the navigation routes in the eastern Mediterranean. Turkey is certainly the most affected party in this new game, for its dreams regarding Syria, which never matched its actual abilities, are fast becoming a nightmare.

The world is watching idly as an Islamic army of barbarians sweeps across the Middle East and engages in a genocide that rivals the Turkish Ottoman Empire genocide against Armenian Christians in the early part of the 20th century.

Turkish President Erdogan, AKP Government Increasingly Steer Country Back To Ottoman Past, Declare War On Ataturk Reforms

Dec 19th, 2014 | By

Erdogan often displays strong anti-West feelings, glorifies the Islamic and Ottoman era, and demands a transformation of Turkey’s education system “to create a devout and obedient youth.”[1] Both he and Turkish Prime Minister and ruling AKP leader Ahmet Davutoglu are pushing for instituting and expanding an Islamist agenda in Turkey, and undoing reforms put in place nearly a century ago by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. They are doing so with a promise to revive and rebuild the Ottoman “world state,”[2] which they claim is the only hope for solving the problems in the Middle East that Erdogan has claimed were “intentionally created by Western powers.”[3]
