Back in 2014, when Turkish police began investigating a local charity’s links to Qatar Charity and its involvement in jihadist activities, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan halted the case as he is willing to ultimately become the neo-Ottoman caliph of Turkey and the Muslim world. According to media reports, an investigation into al-Qaeda cells in Turkey, İbrahim Şen (37), a convicted al-Qaeda terrorist who was detained in Pakistan on alleged al-Qaeda links and transferred to Guantanamo, where he was kept until 2005, was running a recruitment and trafficking drive between Turkey and Syria and using the IHH to cover the terror network. The investigation had exposed Qatar Charity’s links to the IHH offices in Turkish provinces bordering Syria and Iran. Earlier it was proved that Erdoğan government has been accused time and again of conniving, covertly providing financial and/or military support or at least tolerating ISIS. Official statements, documents, witness testimonies, relevant research and reporting from the field by well-regarded institutions and media organs laid bare the naked truth that without the Turkey of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the clientele for ISIS oil would be limited and hence the revenue it generated to fuel the conflict would have been less. After a Russian warplane was shot down on the Turkish-Syrian border by a Turkish F-16 on November 24, 2015, Russian President Vladimir Putin directly accused Turkey, particularly Turkish President Erdoğan and his family, of having commercial ties with ISIS and helping sell its oil.
According to Nordic Monitor, “This allegation was not new nor was it an empty one. The Erdoğan regime’s leniency towards ISIS, especially in the form of loose border controls for the passage of jihadists to join ISIS from around the world, was already generating huge criticism. Russian claims that the Turkish Islamist autocrat was aiding and abetting ISIS terrorism by facilitating the oil trade through a network of cronies, involving in particular some family members, were new. And they were very serious. As expected, these assertions stirred significant reaction and sparked a flow of information from the field that provided more details concerning ISIS’s oil business.”
But, the most disturbing information was recently revealed where it was found that after converting a number of churches into mosques, Erdoğan and his Justice and Development Party have joined hands with narco-rackets in Afghanistan, Myanmar and a number of countries with the notorious agenda of boosting the trafficking of various types of drugs into non-Muslim nations in the West, Australia, Canada as well as Asia as part of ‘narco-jihad’. Their agenda is to paralyze those societies by spreading drugs and addiction.
