TRUMP VS. POLICY ELITES – A NEW MODEL FOR US-ISRAEL RELATIONS

How Trump chose Israel over a failed “peace process”.

September 19, 2018

Gideon Israel

Reprinted from Mida.org.

In the wake of the turbulent relationship between former US President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu, two broadly different visions of how the US-Israel alliance should be repaired have developed.

The one vision is that which is prominent among the foreign policy elites. In their book, Our Separate Ways – hailed as an “urgent examination of why the alliance [between Israel and the US] has deteriorated and the dangers of its neglect”, authors Dana Allin and Steve Simon discuss the inherent danger of this relationship falling apart, due to, in their words “powerful demographic, cultural, and strategic currents in Israel and the US” driving the two countries apart. What needs to be done to repair it they believe, is mainly that Israel reach a two state solution with the Palestinians.

The Washington Institute for Near East Policy held a panel event discussing this topic, in which some participants raised ideas they felt were needed for improving relations with the previous administration. Among these were that Netanyahu should create a wider coalition for maintaining bipartisan support for Israel, including more than just right wing parties, by reaching out to Democrats in America, clarifying settlement policy and more.

Commenting on the issue from the perspective of the Israeli foreign policy community, Eran Etzion, former Director of Planning at Israel’s Foreign Ministry, in assessing the future of US-Israel relations, explained that issues such as the Iran agreement and the Israel-Palestinian conflict will continue to be a point of tension for the US and Israel, irrelevant of the future US Administration. He wrote: “given these structural constraints, a recalibration of the relations between the two leaders and administrations, assuming it is at all attempted, will most probably be limited, rough, and fragile.”

However, for all the speculation of what would happen with a new administration in Washington, his bottom line was clear: “the next political cycle will not see a reversal of the negative trend now apparent in U.S.-Israeli relations.”

Shalom Lipner, a former bureaucrat in the Prime Minister’s office in Israel, in an article in The Atlantic, recommended ‘maximum candor’ between the US and Israel as a first step to fixing  the problem.

This vision was perhaps best laid out, in a policy paper published by The Council on Foreign Relations in November, 2016. Robert Blackwill, former deputy assistant to President Bush, and Philip Gordon, special assistant to President Obama and White House coordinator for Middle East, North Africa and Gulf Region affairs, gave the following six suggestions they thought were needed to repair the relationship going forward:

  • Seek to reframe the relationship at a summit in early 2017 at Camp David focused on developing a new strategic vision for a changing Middle East, committing the United States to remain engaged in the region, seriously addressing the Palestinian problem, and institutionalizing an intensive bilateral strategic dialogue.
  • Enhance Israel’s sense of security and confidence in the United States by committing to expanded missile defense, anti-tunnel, and cybersecurity cooperation under the terms of the September 2016 long term defense assistance Memorandum of Understanding (MOU).
  • Move beyond the debate about the merits of the Iran nuclear agreement and work together to implement and rigorously enforce it, with a commitment to imposing penalties on Iran for noncompliance and a joint plan for preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons after the deal’s main restrictions expire.
  • Develop detailed common understandings about how to more effectively contain Iranian hegemonic regional designs and take action designed to do so.
  • Agree on a set of specific, meaningful measures that Israel will take unilaterally to improve Palestinian daily life and preserve prospects for a two-state solution, linking continued U.S. willingness to refrain from or oppose international action on Israeli settlements or the peace process to Israel’s implementation of such positive, concrete steps.
  • Expand economic cooperation focused on bilateral trade, investment energy, innovation, and Israel’s integration into the region.

Then, there is the other vision, in contrast to the policy elites. Or to put it more precisely, there is the Trump perspective:

  • He invited Netanyahu to the White House early in his Presidency and treated him with respect.
  • He visited Israel on his first trip abroad, and became the first sitting U.S. President to visit the Western Wall.
  • He met with Mahmoud Abbas, confronted him for being deceptive, and called him out to his face about incitement against Israel.
  • He recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, pledged to move the embassy and moved it.
  • US Vice President Pence traveled to Israel within the first year of his term and gave a speech at the Knesset.
  • Trump threw out the Iran deal, added sanctions on Iran, and increased coordination on combating Iran’s aspirations for nuclear weapons and increased regional hegemony.
  • President Trump’s UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley, has single handedly reduced anti-Israel rhetoric at the UN, from constant roars to peeps here and there, by rejecting the constant Israel bashing with an unmatched willingness to fight against it.
  • The US has withdrawn from the U.N. Human Rights Council because, as Ambassador Haley said, it is “a protector of human rights abusers” and accused the body of “politicizing and scapegoating countries with positive human rights records”. And it spends most of its time bashing Israel. The US withdrew its membership in UNESCO as well, citing anti-Israel bias.
  • The US recently announced that it will cease funding of UNRWA, which it says is fundamentally flawed. Furthermore, the Trump administration is attempting to apply the standard definition of ‘refugee’ to the Palestinian refugees – the definition of refugee that applies to all other refugees, from all other conflicts in the world, since the establishment of the League of Nations.
  • The two-state rhetoric has been taken off the table, by simply substituting the phrase “whatever the parties agree to”.
  • US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman has been not backed down from criticizing the Palestinian Authority in light of the vicious attacks against Israeli citizens.

The gap between President Trump and foreign policy elites was not only limited to the broad view of US-Israel relations, but even in the micro, as illustrated by the criticism he received for moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem. Former Secretary of State John Kerry incorrectly predicted that the move would lead to a Middle East explosion. The NY Times emphasized that no fewer than 11 former US Ambassadors to Israel called President Trump’s embassy move “wrongheaded, dangerous or deeply flawed.” Former State Department Adviser, Aaron Miller, a 20 year veteran of the peace process, said that as a result of the move, forging a peace agreement would no longer be ‘mission impossible’, now it would be ‘mission impossible on steroids’.

Simon and Allin also penned an op-ed in Israel’s Ha’aretz lamenting the developments in the US-Israel relationship under the Trump Administration. In fact, towards the end of their book, they note that one of things that could disrupt their prediction would be a Republican candidate being elected in 2016 and 2020 and having a Republican Congress.

What has happened under the Trump Administration was encapsulated best, with one reservation, by former US Ambassador to Israel, Daniel Kurtzner, who said: “The reality is that the United States has been trying to ride two different horses for much of the last 50 years, if not for the entire 70 years [of Israel’s existence]. One of those is to act as a third-party mediator and honest broker to the peace process… The second horse we’ve been trying to ride is to expand the relationship with Israel…What President Trump has effectively done here is that he is going to ride only one horse…He’s decided that it’s more important for the United States to expand, enhance, deepen, and strengthen its relationship with Israel than it is to enhance the very peace process that he has raised expectations about with regards to the United States’ role.”

President Trump has decided that it’s important to strengthen the US-Israel relationship, because that is where the US interests lie. But it has not come at the expense of the peace process. To the policy elites, it seems as though it comes at the expense of the peace process, precisely because they have created peace process theories which have brought forth the Oslo framework and two state solution which continues to dominate their thinking even today. However, these ideas were distant from reality, a prescription of what should be, the attempt to impose their framework on a non-compliant reality.

Instead of being bound by a grand strategy, preconceived theories or the conventional wisdom preconceptions, Trump came onto the stage and decided to look at the issues in the Middle East with a fresh outlook, a new paradigm.

He did so by asking the simple and obvious questions none of the policy elites were asking – Why is there one refugee organization for the Palestinians and another for the rest of the world? That makes no sense, let’s restore the refugee definition to what it should be;  Why should I give US taxpayer dollars to the Palestinians? All they do is bash us; Why are we part of and helping to fund organizations like UNHRC and UNESCO? All they do is waste our time and money on bashing our allies and our values, That makes no sense, we don’t need to be there; Why shouldn’t the Embassy be in Jerusalem, isn’t that where Israel defines its capital to be and where their government sits?; Why are we locked into the idea of two states, maybe there is a better solution? Let’s explore different approaches; How can the Palestinians teach their children to hate Israel and attack it? That won’t bring peace, might as well talk to Abbas about that; And, Mahmoud Abbas deceived me, should I not tell him? Since Israel is our ally, should I not make it clear that we are behind them?

President Trump’s vision for repairing the relationship begins by taking a fresh look at reality and moving forward from there. Many of the issues Trump has tackled are low hanging fruit which have been hanging there for years. They relate to topics which have not been addressed in the past for either fear of their impact on other issues or because proposed initiatives didn’t fit into well prescribed theories and complicated strategies. But Trump has decided on a different path for repairing the relationship, one based in looking at reality and taking appropriate action.

THE JIHADIST PSYCHOPATH’S PLANTATION

Jamie Glazov’s new book reveals how the Jihadist Psychopath keeps us enslaved in his prison – and how we can escape.

September 21, 2018

Frontpagemag.com

As the release of Frontpage Editor Jamie Glazov’s new book, Jihadist Psychopath: How He Is Charming, Seducing, and Devouring Usapproaches, we are excited to announce one of Dr. Glazov’s original and ground-breaking revelations in his new book: How the Jihadist Psychopath has successfully built his totalitarian plantation in the West — a plantation on which many westerners, including many of our leaders, are now enslaved and dutifully following the Jihadist Psychopath‘s orders.

Dr. Glazov outlines the frameworks of this tyrannical plantation and shows how those who are unwillingly trapped on it, and who yearn for freedom, can best escape. Dr. Glazov also reveals (as he explains in his new video), how the Unholy Alliance is simply in panic mode at the prospect of people waking up to the existence of the Jihadist Psychopath‘s plantation and shedding their fear of the smears they will face for leaving it.

It is clear that Jihadist Psychopath, which is Amazon’s #1 New Release in the “Medical Mental Illness” category, offers a very unique perspective on the terror war. Like no other work, it unveils the world of psychopathy and reveals, step by step, how Islamic Supremacists are duplicating the sinister methodology of psychopaths who routinely charm, seduce, capture, and devour their prey.

Jihadist Psychopath unveils how every element of the formula by which the psychopath subjugates his victim is used by the Islamic Supremacist to ensnare and subjugate non-Muslims. And in the same way that the victim of the psychopath is complicit in his own destruction, so too Western civilization is now embracing and enabling its own conquest and consumption.

The book has received glowing advance praise from President Trump’s National Security Adviser, John Bolton(Dr. Glazov discusses this great honor HERE).

Bolton says about Jihadist Psychopath:

Hard as it is to believe, many in the West simply will not take the time and trouble to understand the threat posed by radical Islamicist terrorism. James Burnham once wrote of a similar problem with international Communism in his masterful Suicide of the West. Now, Jamie Glazov has written this century’s counterpart to Burnham’s classic work and will doubtless upset those determined not to analyze for themselves the nature of the underlying phenomenon.

With a Foreword written by Michael Ledeen, advance praise also comes from Dennis Prager, Geert Wilders, Robert Spencer, Steve Emerson and many other titans and scholars in the international arena. (See Amazon page for many of the blurbs).

Dennis Prager affirms that Jihadist Psychopath is “…one of the most important books of the present time.”

And that’s why you have to pre-order a copy now. Order Jihadist Psychopath Today!

U.S. Blacklists 33 Russians, Companies Linked To Military, Intelligence Agencies

Mike Eckel September 20, 2018

WASHINGTON — The U.S. State Department said it was blacklisting nearly three dozen Russian people and companies with ties to military and intelligence agencies, in its latest effort to punish Moscow for “malign activities.”

Among those targeted by the effort, announced on September 20, were the 12 military intelligence officers who had been indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller earlier this year for alleged meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Many of those named have also been sanctioned or blacklisted previously, under different designations, meaning that the new measures were unlikely to have any significant effect.

In all, 33 Russians and Russian companies were added to the blacklist, which also included Yevgeny Prigozhin, a Russian tycoon known colloquially as “Putin’s chef” for the catering contracts his company has with the Kremlin.

His catering companies and a private military company known as PMC Wagner, whose fighters have turned up in conflicts in Syria, Ukraine, and Africa, were also blacklisted.

Prigozhin and his companies were indicted by Mueller in February for alleged election meddling. He has repeatedly denied the U.S. accusations, responding to the February indictment by saying: “If they want to see the devil, let them.”

The move was taken under the 2017 law known as CAASTA that was overwhelmingly passed by Congress over President Donald Trump’s objections. The law was passed specifically to target Russia, along with several other countries, setting up a wider framework for punitive financial measures, while also making it harder for the White House to lift existing measures.

“The ultimate target of these sanctions is Russia,” a State Department official told reporters. “They are…aimed at imposing costs upon Russia in response to its malign activities.”

Another, even harsher bill currently making its way through Congress aims to punish Russia by targeting its ability to issue sovereign debt, going after major energy companies like Gazprom and Rosneft, and other things.

The legislation, known by its acronym DETER, has bipartisan support, but it’s unclear whether it will come up for a vote before the November midterm elections in the United States.

State Department officials also named a Chinese military agency and its director for buying Russia fighter jets and an antiaircraft system.

Officials said the company, Equipment Development Department, and chief officer, Li Shangfu, engaged in “significant transactions” with Russia’s main arms exporter Rosoboroneksport.

US Unveils New Biodefense Strategy

In-Depth Coverage

By Marissa Melton September 18, 2018

U.S. President Donald Trump introduced the new national strategy for combating disease outbreaks and bioterrorism Tuesday, on the anniversary of the 2001 anthrax attacks on the United States that left five people dead.

In a statement, the president said, “Biological threats emanate from many sources, and they know no borders.”

In the 2001 attacks, letters containing anthrax spores were mailed to two Democratic U.S. senators and several news media outlets. Five people died in the attacks, and another 17 were infected by exposure to the spores. The identity of the person responsible for the letters was never discovered, although the prime suspect, a government scientist, committed suicide in 2008.

This year’s strategy, the president said, builds on lessons learned from past biological incidents, including not only the anthrax attacks but the 2009 U.S. outbreak of influenza and the Ebola virus epidemic that killed thousands of people in West Africa in 2014.

Trump said he has authorized Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar to serve as the federal lead in coordinating implementation of the national strategy. He said he has also established a cabinet-level biodefense steering committee, and directed National Security Adviser John Bolton to review threats and prioritize biodefense actions annually.

In a news briefing Tuesday, Azar told reporters that biological threats are “very real, and they’re growing.” He said this year’s strategy is the first by the U.S. to include naturally occurring threats.

Previously, the national biodefense strategy focused on the weaponization of biological threats by enemy forces. But Bolton told reporters at the briefing that there is no “particular immediate threat” of a biological attack.

Cuts to funding

Ashley Arabasadi, chair of the Global Health Security Agenda Consortium, told VOA on Tuesday that her collective welcomes the release of the strategy after several delays. However, she said in an email, “the administration’s actions do not match its words.”

She said the Trump administration’s proposed budget cuts health security funding to the Centers for Disease Control and the U.S. Agency for International Development, and withdraws unspent funding for Ebola defense.

“Without funds, we cannot continue to implement the programs on the ground and ensure that we are making the world [and the U.S.] safer from infectious disease threats whether natural, man-made, accidental, or intentional,” she said.

The Global Health Security Agenda Consortium is an international group of nongovernmental organizations that promotes cooperation on world health security needs and defends against infectious threats.

White House correspondent Patsy Widakuswara contributed to this report.

Φόβοι για έφοδο της τουρκικής ΜΙΤ στην Ελλάδα

Protothema.gr

Νεφέλη Λυγερού

© Παρέχεται από: PROTO THEMA S.A. tourkia

Τη στιγμή που οι τουρκικές μυστικές υπηρεσίες απήγαγαν από το Κόσοβο και μετέφεραν στην Τουρκία «χωρίς να ανοίξει ρουθούνι» έξι Τούρκους με την κατηγορία ότι είναι στελέχη του δικτύου Φετουλάχ Γκιουλέν, η ελληνική κυβέρνηση τρέμει στο ενδεχόμενο να μετατραπούν οι οκτώ Τούρκοι που κατέφυγαν στη χώρα μας μετά το πραξικόπημα, σε μια ιδιότυπη υπόθεση Οτσαλάν.

Πράγματι, η επικείμενη αποφυλάκισή τους μετά την παρέλευση του 18μηνου δημιουργεί ένα δυσεπίλυτο πρόβλημα: τι θα συμβεί τον επόμενο μήνα; Ο Σταύρος Κοντονής διαβεβαίωσε ότι η απελευθέρωσή τους δεν μπορεί να αποφευχθεί, καθώς αυτό επιτάσσουν το Σύνταγμα και οι νόμοι. Το ενδεχόμενο στήσιμο μιας ενέδρας, όμως, σε ελληνικό έδαφος, μιας απαγωγής ή, ακόμα χειρότερα, μιας δολοφονικής ενέργειας θα συνιστούσε τεράστιο πλήγμα στο κύρος της Ελλάδας. Σε μια τέτοια περίπτωση, πάντως, δεν θα ήταν η πρώτη φορά που οι μυστικές υπηρεσίας της Τουρκίας θα δρούσαν κατ’ αυτόν τον τρόπο σε ευρωπαϊκό έδαφος. Παρότι η Δύση «πυροβολεί» το Κρεμλίνο μετά τη δηλητηρίαση του Σεργκέι Σκριπάλ και της κόρης του με νευροτοξική ουσία, κανείς δεν δίνει σημασία στο μακρύ χέρι του Ερντογάν στη Δύση. Τούρκοι πράκτορες της ΜΙΤ που ζουν σε ευρωπαϊκές πρωτεύουσες, απασχολούμενοι σε ταξιδιωτικά γραφεία, μεταφραστικές ομάδες, τράπεζες και μουσουλμανικά τεμένη φαίνεται ότι έχουν μετατρέψει την Ευρώπη σε προνομιακό πεδίο δράσης. Με απειλές, απαγωγές και ύποπτους θανάτους Κούρδων ακτιβιστών και μελών της αδελφότητας Γκιουλέν έχουν προβληματίσει τις αρχές ασφαλείας πολλών κρατών, όπως η Γερμανία, η Γαλλία, το Βέλγιο και η Ολλανδία.

Στη Χάγη, μάλιστα, λέγεται ότι έχει έδρα ένα άρτια δομημένο και πολυπληθές παράρτημα της ΜΙΤ. Στη δράση των τουρκικών μυστικών υπηρεσιών στην Ευρώπη συμπεριλαμβάνονται και οι «λίστες θανάτου», στις οποίες έχουν καταχωρηθεί Κούρδοι, Τούρκοι, αλλά και Ευρωπαίοι πολίτες που είναι σφοδροί επικριτές του Ερντογάν. Ενδεικτικό του κλίματος διωγμών που επικρατεί στη γείτονα είναι και το γεγονός ότι σημαντικός αριθμός Τούρκων χρησιμοποιεί κάθε μέσο για να περάσει στην Ελλάδα, ζητώντας άσυλο. Απλώς η υπόθεση των οκτώ στρατιωτικών που η Αγκυρα χαρακτηρίζει «πραξικοπηματίες» και απαιτεί επίμονα την έκδοσή τους είναι εμβληματική. Είναι αξιοσημείωτο, μάλιστα, ότι οι ελληνικές αρχές χρησιμοποιούν κάθε νόμιμο μέσο για να παρατείνουν την κράτηση των «οκτώ», φοβούμενες το ενδεχόμενο να πέσουν κι αυτοί θύματα δολοφονικής επίθεσης από Τούρκους πράκτορες.

Εκτροχιασμός της ΜΙΤ

Αν και μετά το αποτυχημένο πραξικόπημα δημοσιεύματα έκαναν λόγο για περιθωριοποίηση της ΜΙΤ από τον Ρετζέπ Ταγίπ Ερντογάν, λόγω του ότι δεν τον ενημέρωσε εγκαίρως, τα γεγονότα απέδειξαν ότι ο Τούρκος πρόεδρος συνεχίζει να εμπιστεύεται τον αρχηγό της Χακάν Φιντάν. Οταν μάλιστα τον είχε διορίσει σε αυτή τη θέση είχε επιβεβαιωθεί η φήμη πως τον θεωρούσε πολιτικό τέκνο του. Είναι ενδεικτικό άλλωστε το γεγονός ότι του είχε αναθέσει την αποστολή της διαπραγμάτευσης με τον φυλακισμένο Οτσαλάν για αναζήτηση πολιτικής λύσης του Κουρδικού. Αργότερα είχαν κυκλοφορήσει φήμες για αντικατάσταση του επικεφαλής της ΜΙΤ, αλλά διαψεύστηκαν. Τον Χακάν Φιντάν και τον αρχηγό ΓΕΕΘΑ έστειλε ο Ερντογάν στη Μόσχα για να διαπραγματευτεί με τους εκπροσώπους του Βλαντιμίρ Πούτιν προκειμένου να δοθεί το πράσινο φως των Ρώσων για την εισβολή στην Αφρίν.

Μετά το αποτυχημένο πραξικόπημα έγιναν εκκαθαρίσεις και στη ΜΙΤ, όπως και σε όλους τους κρίσιμους κρατικούς μηχανισμούς. Οσοι ήταν ύποπτοι για σχέσεις με το δίκτυο του Γκιουλέν απολύθηκαν ή και φυλακίστηκαν και στη συνέχεια η ΜΙΤ στελεχώθηκε με νέο αίμα και δημιουργήθηκαν στους κόλπους της νέα ανεξάρτητα τμήματα που λογοδοτούν απευθείας σε Τούρκο πρόεδρο. Ενα τέτοιο τμήμα ασχολείται αποκλειστικά με τη δράση όσων έχουν την ταμπέλα του αντιφρονούντα και έχουν διαφύγει στο εξωτερικό. Αυτό είχε υποστηρίξει και ο διωκόμενος και αυτοεξόριστος Τούρκος δημοσιογράφος Αμπντουλάχ Μποζκούρτ: «Η ΜΙΤ έχει ήδη δημιουργήσει μια ομάδα εργασίας στους σκοτεινούς διαδρόμους της Αγκυρας για τον συντονισμό δολοφονιών σημαντικών επικριτών του Ερντογάν στο εξωτερικό». Η εκστρατεία τρόμου σε ευρωπαϊκό έδαφος δεν είναι, πάντως, κάτι νέο για την Αγκυρα. Ξεκίνησε με κυβερνοεπιθέσεις και έχει φτάσει να συμπεριλαμβάνει και μια σειρά εγκλημάτων κατά της ζωής.

Πεδίο δράσης το Παρίσι, η Ολλανδία, η Γερμανία, η Ελβετία…

Η δράση πρακτόρων της ΜΙΤ εκτός τουρκικών συνόρων είναι τόσο προφανής που οι υπηρεσίες της Γαλλίας, του Βελγίου και της Γερμανίας αποφάσισαν να ενώσουν τις δυνάμεις τους για την αποτελεσματικότερη αντιμετώπισή τους. Εξάλλου, αυτοί υπολογίζονται σε χιλιάδες. Το κουβάρι της δράσης τους άρχισε να ξετυλίγεται στις 9 Ιανουαρίου του 2013, με την εν ψυχρώ δολοφονία τριών Κούρδων στο Παρίσι, που είχε σημάνει συναγερμό στις γαλλικές μυστικές υπηρεσίες. Οι έρευνες έδειξαν ότι τις δολοφονίες είχαν διαπράξει είτε πράκτορες της ΜΙΤ είτε πληρωμένοι εκτελεστές που είχαν προληφθεί από την τουρκική μυστική υπηρεσία.

Η μία εκ των θυμάτων ήταν η Σακίνε Τζανσίζ, ηγετικό στέλεχος του PKK, το οποίο μάλιστα δημοσίευσε λίγες ημέρες νωρίτερα βίντεο, φωτογραφίες και ντοκουμέντα που δείχνουν δυο υψηλά ιστάμενα στελέχη της ΜΙΤ να εξηγούν στην κάμερα τον σχεδιασμό και την οργάνωση της εκτέλεσης στο Παρίσι. Το ίδιο έκανε και με τα ονόματα, τα διπλωματικά διαβατήρια και τις επαγγελματικές ταυτότητες των δυο συλληφθέντων, δηλαδή του διευθυντή του Τμήματος Επιχειρήσεων κατά των Αυτονομιστών και του διευθυντή του Τμήματος Ανθρώπινου Δυναμικού της ΜΙΤ. Οι δυο πράκτορες αποκάλυψαν πολλές πληροφορίες και λεπτομέρειες που αποδεικνύουν ότι η τριπλή δολοφονία σχεδιάστηκε και εκτελέστηκε από τη ΜΙΤ. Οι ίδιοι παραδέχθηκαν, πάντα on camera, την αυθεντικότητα των επίσημων εγγράφων που είχαν ήδη δημοσιευτεί από τα κουρδικά ΜΜΕ. Αποκάλυψαν, μάλιστα, τα ονόματα και τις θέσεις των πρακτόρων που διέταξαν και εκείνων που πραγματοποίησαν την τριπλή δολοφονία. Πρόκειται για ένα υψηλά ιστάμενο μέλος της τουρκικής επιτροπής αρμόδιας για την έναρξη διαλόγου με το ΡΚΚ με σκοπό την ειρήνη. «Μια τέτοια επίθεση, που είναι πολύ σημαντική και μπορεί να έχει διεθνείς επιπτώσεις, δεν μπορεί να πραγματοποιηθεί χωρίς τη συμφωνία μιας ανώτατης πολιτικής αρχής», δήλωσε ο αξιωματικός της ΜΙΤ.

Αλλο ένα περιστατικό που θορύβησε τις ευρωπαϊκές αρχές είναι η αποκάλυψη ότι Τούρκοι πράκτορες σχεδίαζαν τη δολοφονία Κούρδισσας πρώην βουλευτίνας σε ευρωπαϊκό έδαφος. Την αποκάλυψή έκανε η ολλανδική εφημερίδα «De Telegraaf». Η εφημερίδα ισχυρίστηκε ότι εδώ και μήνες η MIT έχει στήσει αρχηγείο στη Χάγη, όπου Τούρκοι πράκτορες συμπληρώνουν τις λίστες με τα ονόματα αντιφρονούντων και επικριτών του Ερντογάν που ζουν σε ευρωπαϊκές χώρες. Το ρεπορτάζ, μάλιστα, έφερε τον τίτλο «Χάγη, η φωλιά Τούρκων πρακτόρων» και στηρίζεται σε απομαγνητοφώνηση συνομιλίας μεταξύ ενός πράκτορα της MIT στη Χάγη και του Τούρκου πράκτορα Μουσταφά Καρατάς στο Αμβούργο. Η συνομιλία έγινε γνωστή αφότου στάλθηκε μέσω ηλεκτρονικού ταχυδρομείου στην κουρδικής καταγωγής βουλευτίνα του Die Linke, στην τοπική Βουλή του Αμβούργου Τζανσού Οζντεμίρ. Αντίγραφο του ηχητικού της συνομιλίας παραδόθηκε και στην Αστυνομία του Αμβούργου. Οι πράκτορες συζητούν, σύμφωνα με την ολλανδική εφημερίδα, και για την πρώην βουλευτή του τουρκικού Κοινοβουλίου Σεβαχίρ Μπαγιντίρ, η οποία είναι κουρδικής καταγωγής.

Η σταγόνα που ξεχείλισε το ποτήρι ήταν η υπόθεση του Κούρδου πολιτικού Γιουκσέλ Κοτς, ο οποίος ζει στη Γερμανία. Το 2016 οι γερμανικές αρχές συνέλαβαν τον Τούρκο πολίτη Φετίχ Σ., ο οποίος κατηγορήθηκε ως πράκτορας της MΙT που είχε εντολές να δολοφονήσει τον Κούρδο πολιτικό. Η συγκεκριμένη υπόθεση που έφτασε στη Δικαιοσύνη ανάγκασε τις γερμανικές μυστικές υπηρεσίες να σπάσουν τη σιωπή τους και να ενημερώσουν επισήμως τους δικαστές και συνεπώς τους Γερμανούς και Ευρωπαίους πολίτες για τη δράση της τουρκικής μυστικής υπηρεσίας σε ευρωπαϊκό έδαφος. Σύμφωνα με δημοσίευμα του περιοδικού «Der Spiegel», τον Ιανουάριο του 2017, οι γερμανικές μυστικές υπηρεσίες ενημέρωσαν τους δικαστές ότι στη χώρα ενδέχεται να βρίσκονται τουλάχιστον 6.000 πράκτορες της MΙT και μη υπολογίσιμος αριθμός συνεργατών τους. Η γαλλική «Le Monde», με τη σειρά της, αποκαλύπτει πως η MΙT έχει αναπτύξει τεράστιο δίκτυο πρακτόρων στην Ευρωπαϊκή Ενωση με σκοπό να εξολοθρεύσει εχθρούς του Ταγίπ Ερντογάν, προσθέτοντας μάλιστα ότι ο καλύτερος τρόπος για να βρεθεί ο μίτος σε αυτόν τον κατασκοπευτικό λαβύρινθο είναι η στενή συνεργασία των ευρωπαϊκών υπηρεσιών ασφαλείας.

Ενδεικτική και πιο πρόσφατη υπόθεση είναι αυτή που αφορά στην Ελβετία: μέσω εγγράφων τεκμηριώθηκε ότι Τούρκοι υψηλόβαθμοι διπλωμάτες που εργάζονται στην τουρκική πρεσβεία της Βέρνης σχεδίασαν να απαγάγουν ένα άτομο που ζει στην Ελβετία και ένα ομοσπονδιακό δικαστήριο άρχισε έρευνα σχετικά με το θέμα. Το ρεπορτάζ της γνωστής ελβετικής εφημερίδας «Tagesanzeiger», που στηρίζεται σε έγγραφα από αρμόδια υπηρεσία, αναφέρει ότι δύο υψηλόβαθμοι διπλωμάτες της τουρκικής πρεσβείας της Βέρνης σε συνεργασία με ένα άτομο, τα στοιχεία του οποίου δεν ανακοινώθηκαν, οργάνωσαν απαγωγή. Σύμφωνα με όσα αναφέρει η εφημερίδα, η απόπειρα σχεδιάστηκε το καλοκαίρι του 2016 και αφορούσε έναν επιχειρηματία 55 ετών που κατείχε και την ελβετική και την τουρκική υπηκοότητα.

Οι ελβετικές αρχές επιχείρησαν να κρατήσουν κρυφή την υπόθεση, αλλά η εφημερίδα δημοσίευσε λεπτομέρειες. Σύμφωνα με την Εισαγγελία, υπήρξαν περισσότερες της μιας συναντήσεις για την προετοιμασία της απαγωγής. Αρμόδιοι της MIT συναντήθηκαν τρεις φορές με Τούρκους διπλωμάτες και με ένα ακόμη άτομο σε ένα γκαράζ αυτοκινήτων που βρίσκεται στη Ζυρίχη κοντά σε ένα νεκροταφείο. Σύμφωνα με το ρεπορτάζ, στελέχη της ΜΙΤ συναντήθηκαν σε νεκροταφείο της Ζυρίχης με αρμόδιο της τουρκικής πρεσβείας της Βέρνης πάντα με θέμα την οργάνωση της απαγωγής.

Λέγεται πως στο στόχαστρο της επίλεκτης ομάδας που αποτελεί την καρδιά του επιχειρησιακού βραχίονα της ΜΙΤ βρίσκεται και η Ελλάδα. Ο Εριχ Σμιτ-Εενμπομ, δημοσιογράφος, συγγραφέας και αναλυτής στο Γερμανικό Ινστιτούτο Ερευνών για την Πολιτική Ειρήνης, υποστηρίζει πως «εδώ και καιρό ο Τούρκος πρόεδρος Ερντογάν έχει δώσει εντολή στις μυστικές υπηρεσίες να αυξήσουν τη δραστηριότητά τους, καθώς μακρόπνοος στόχος του είναι μια Τουρκία που δεν θα περιορίζεται στα σημερινά της σύνορα».

Η ΜΙΤ φέρεται μάλιστα να έχει εξοπλίσει πράκτορές της σε ολόκληρη την Ευρώπη με τα τσεχικής προέλευσης υποπολυβόλα τύπου Scorpion. Σύμφωνα με τον Γερμανό αναλυτή, δεν αποκλείεται το ενδεχόμενο τα όπλα που βρέθηκαν στο τζαμί της Κομοτηνής να έφτασαν εκεί με σκοπό να χρησιμοποιηθούν από πράκτορες της ΜΙΤ. Ο ίδιος τονίζει τον ρόλο που παίζουν οι ιμάμηδες που στέλνει η Αγκυρα στο εξωτερικό, καθώς και τα τουρκικά προξενεία, τα οποία λειτουργούν σαν κέντρα συλλογής πληροφοριών και παρακολούθησης κάθε είδους αντιφρονούντων.

Mete Yarar, Ege’de kurulmak istenen tuzağı yazdı

Yunanistan, Türkiye ile savaş mı istiyor?

SuperHaber yazarı Mete Yarar, Türkiye’nin güney sınırlarında terörle mücadelesi sürerken Ege’de tansiyonu yükselten eylemlerini arttıran Yunanistan’ın planını yazdı.

Gündem 02.04.2018 09:47

Yarar, Karar gazetesindeki yazısında, “Normalde Yunanistan’ın durumunda olan bir ülke, Türkiye ile sorunlarını en azından dondurmaya, sonrasında Ege ve Kıbrıs açıklarında ortak enerji yatırımlarına girmeyi tercih eder. Savunma giderlerini de düşürerek bir çıkış yolu bulmaya çalışır. Bunun dışında bir yol izliyor ise bu akıl dışı yolu finanse eden bir motivasyon kaynağına ihtiyacı vardır.” diye yazdı.

İşte o satırlar:

Türkiye Suriye ve Irak’ta terör örgütleri ile mücadele ederken, bir taraftan da mülteci sorununu kalıcı bir şekilde çözmek isterken, Yunanistan sizce bu düşmanca tavırları ile ne yapmak istiyor?

Açıkçası bu sorunun cevabı, herşey iyi giderken bir anda FETÖ’cülere, DHKPC ve PKK terör örgütü mensuplarına yeniden sahip çıkmasının ve Türkiye ile ilişkileri sıkıntılı olan Mısır ve israil ile adalar bölgesinde hava ve deniz tatbikatları yapmasının ardından gizli.

Bu yapılanların bir tanesi bile aslında ilişkileri germeye yetecekken Yunanistan, geçmişi hatırlatan isimler vererek tatbikatlar yapmakta, bazı adalar üzerinde hak iddia ederek güç gösterisine devam etmektedir. Bunları yaparken de AB’yi arkasına alarak yüksek perdeden konuşmaktadır.

Yunanistan’ı bunlara yapmaya iten birkaç motivasyondan bahsedelim. Birinci bölümde kendi iç motivasyonlarından bahsetmek lazım.

1990 yılındaki GSYH baktığınızda Yunanistan’ın yaklaşık 100 milyar dolar ve Türkiye’nin de 150 milyar dolar olduğunu görebiliriz. Bu rakam günümüzde ise Türkiye lehine neredeyse üç misli artmış durumda. Bu da bütün dengeleri altüst ediyor. ABD’nin ısrarla sürdürmek istediği o 7/10 dengesi çoktan Türkiye lehine bozulmuş durumda.

***

Savunma sanayisinde dışa bağımlılığı azalmış ve uzun menzilli füze sistemlerine sahip bir Türkiye de Yunanistan için korkulu bir rüya. Bu bağımsızlık daha önce kullandığı argümanları da boşa çıkarmış durumda. Ne zaman Türkiye ile bir sorun yaşasa ya ABD üzerinden ya da AB üzerinden Türkiye’ye gizli silah ambargoları koydurmayı hep başarmıştı. Bu kullandığı büyük silah da artık elinde değil.

Geçmişte Türkiye ile Rusya sorun yaşadığında Yunanistan bu gücü dini bağlantılarını kullanarak hep kendi lehine çevirmeyi başarmıştı. Türkiye’nin Rusya ile stratejik ortaklığa gitmesi kendi oyun planlarını da altüst etmiş durumdadır. Siyasal destekçilerini kaybetmeye başlayınca kendisine yeni oyun partnerleri aramaya başlamıştır. Bunlar da ‘düşmanımın düşmanı benim dostumdur’ kontenjanından gelen ülkeler olmaya başlamıştır.

Türkiye kendi iç sorunlarını ( terör ve siyasal istikrarsızlık ) çözmeye başlarken Yunanistan ekonomik ve siyasal krizler ile boğuşmaya başlamıştır. Kişi başı milli gelir yüksek olmasına rağmen devlet gittikçe fakirleşmeye devam etmektedir.
Türkiye ve Yunanistan arasındaki nüfus dengesi çığ gibi büyümeye devam etmektedir. Yunanistan nüfusu sabit kalmaya devam ederken bir taraftanda yaşlanmaya başlamıştır. Türkiye ise en genç dinamik nüfusuna sahip ülkedir. Bu ise en önemli milli güç unsuralarından biri olan nüfus sayısının güç çarpanını Türkiye lehine artırmaktadır.

Sınır sorunlarını çözmesi ile beraber Türkiye’nin başını Ege’ye ve Kıbrıs’a çevireceğini Yunanistan çok iyi bilmektedir. Bu nedenle sorun çözme işlemi devam ederken gerilimi artırmak şu an için işine gelmektedir. Arkasına AB’yi alarak yaptığı bu gerilim ile ekonomik olarak da Türkiye’nin önüne yeni açmazlar koymak istemektedir.

***

Türkiye’nin savunma doktrini; bir taraftan bir veya birkaç terör örgütü ile düşük veya orta ölçekli bir mücadele ederken, aynı anda bir ülke ile savaşı kabul etmesi üzerinedir. Bu doktrini Yunanistan da NATO partneri olarak çok iyi bilmektedir.
Bunu bilmesi işin içinde tuzak olduğunun da açık bir göstergesidir. Yunanistan savaş çıkarmadan Türkiye’yi kontrollü gerilimin içine çekmeye çalışmaktadır.

Bu saydığım iç faktörlere sizler de eklemeler yapabilirsiniz.

Gelelim yurt dışı motivasyon kaynaklarına; Ülkenin borç yükü ödenemez bir boyutu çoktan geçmiştir. Ülkenin bir çok önemli tesisi ya satılmış ya da işletme hakkı otuz yıllığına devredilmiştir. Bu ödenemez borç, ülkenin milli kararları alması sırasında farklı yerler tarafından istenmeyen noktalara savrulmasına yol açabilir. Sanırım açmaya da başlamış durumdadır.
Normalde Yunanistan’ın durumunda olan bir ülke, Türkiye ile sorunlarını en azından dondurmaya, sonrasında Ege ve Kıbrıs açıklarında ortak enerji yatırımlarına girmeyi tercih eder. Savunma giderlerini de düşürerek bir çıkış yolu bulmaya çalışır. Bunun dışında bir yol izliyor ise bu akıl dışı yolu finanse eden bir motivasyon kaynağına ihtiyacı vardır.

Türkiye kendisine kurulan tuzakları bir bir geçerek yoluna ilerlemeye devam etmektedir. Türkiye büyüdükçe sorunlarının boyutu küçülmeye devam edecektir. Sorun çıkaran ülkeler de buna dahildir.

Savaş ciddi bir iştir

Çinli strateji ustası Sun Tzu şöyle diyor: “Savaş bir ölüm-kalım meselesidir. Güvenlik içinde yaşamaya ya da yok olmaya giden bir yoldur. Bu yüzden koşullar ne olursa olsun ihmal edilemeyecek bir inceleme konusudur.” Savaşta strateji ve taktikler hayati önem taşır. Taktiklerde hata olabilir. Taktik bazı girişimler mutlak başarısızlıkla da sonuçlanabilir. Bunların telafi imkânı vardır. Ancak esas olan stratejidir. Stratejik seviyede bir sorun varsa, askeri ve siyasi hedeflere ulaşma şansı yoktur. Sağlıksız bir stratejiyi başarılı taktikler de kurtaramaz! Muharebeyi kazandıran taktikleri düşmanımız öğrenebilir; tedbir de alabilir ama bizi zafere götüren stratejiyi düşman asla göremez. Sağlam kurgulanan gerçekçi bir strateji bizi kolayca hedefe ulaştırır.

NASIL BİR KUŞATMA?

Askeri harekâtta kuşatma geniş olarak tartışılan bir konudur. Bir şehrin kuşatılması tarihsel süreçlerde sık olarak karşımıza çıkan bir durumdur. Leningrad kuşatması gibi birçok tarihi olayın filmi de çekilmiştir. Her bir kuşatma özel bir durumdur ve kendi özel koşulları içinde değerlendirilmelidir. Bir alanda sonuç veren bir kuşatma eylemi, diğer bir alanda başarısız olabilir. Ama tartışılan konu şudur: “360 dereceyi kontrol eden, hiçbir çıkışa izin vermeyen mutlak bir kuşatma mı yoksa bir istikametten bilinçli olarak kaçış koridoru bırakan bir kuşatma mı daha faydalıdır?”

Geri çekilme ya da kaçma olasılığı olmayan bir savaşçı ölüme meydan okuyarak savaşır. Farkında olmadan hayatta kalmak için bütün yaratıcılığını cesaretle kullanır; bir savaş makinesine dönüşür. Ayrıca böyle durumlarda birlik disiplini, dayanışma ve taktik etkinlik artar. Emre itaat ve sadakat duygularının da yükseldiği tespit edilmiştir. Harp tarihi bize, “böyle durumlarla yüz yüze gelen askerlerin korku duygusunu kaybettiğini” söyler.

Reklamdan sonra devam ediyor

Bu nedenle bazı strateji uzmanları bu tür durumlarda, “düşmanın kaçması için bir sektör bırakılmasının daha uygun olacağını” ileri sürer. Tezleri şudur: Yoğun ateş ve baskı altında bunalan düşman askerlerinden direnci daha az olanlar kaçmaya meyleder. Korku duygusu yayılmaya başlar. Korku ise bulaşıcıdır; yıkıcı bir etkisi vardır. Hem mantıklı düşünme yetisini kaybettirir hem de sadakat bilincini zayıflatır. Kontrol edilemediği takdirde genel bir panik havası ortaya çıkar. Düşmanda geri döndürülemez bir çözülme süreci başlar. Eğer bu atmosfer yapılan anonslar, atılan bildiriler gibi uygun psikolojik harp yöntemleri ile desteklenirse, çözülme daha da hızlanır. Eğer kuşatma ile ulaşılacak askeri hedeflerin acil olarak ele geçirilmesi gerekiyorsa, düşmanın çekilmesine izin verilmesi de değerlendirilmelidir.

İSTİHBARAT BELİRLEYİCİ OLABİLİR!

Günümüzde, vekâlet savaşları da dâhil her türlü çatışmada en önemli unsur istihbarattır. Devlet dışı aktörlerin katıldığı çatışmalarda istihbaratın önemi daha da artar. Çünkü terör örgütlerinin de muharebe sahnesinde olduğu çatışmalarda geleneksel istihbarat usulleri yeterli olmayabilir. Daha etkili ve yaratıcı yöntemler gerekir. İnsan İstihbaratı ve İnsansız Hava Araçları ile havadan gözetleme önem ve öncelik kazanır. Düşman haberleşmesinin gizlice dinlenmesi (COMINT) başarıya giden yolu kısaltır. Dinamik, gerçek zamanlı, anlık ve operasyona yönelik (actionable intelligence) istihbarat ön plana çıkar. Hedef şehirlerde geniş bir istihbarat ağı kurulmalıdır. Müzahir yöre halkı bu konuda hayati bir rol oynayabilir. Ayrıca İstihbarata Karşı Koyma (İKK) konusunda da son kerte dikkatli olunmalıdır. Birliklerin harekâtı düşmandan gizlenmelidir. Çağımızın hastalığı olan ve düşman için bir ihbar vasıtası niteliğindeki cep telefonları yasaklanmalı, kullananlar rütbe ve makam gözetilmeksizin cezalandırılmalıdır. Diğer taraftan bir terör örgütü bir devlete yaslanıyorsa, o devletin bütün istihbarat toplama gayretinin karşı taraf üzerinde odaklanacağı göz önünde bulundurulmalıdır. Bu çerçevede şüpheli ülkelere karşı da etkin önlemler alınmalıdır.

Sun Tzu ile başladık; onunla bitirelim: “Başarılı bir strateji, zaferi garanti altına aldıktan sonra savaşa girer, kaderi yenilmek olan ise önce saldırır, sonra zaferi aramaya başlar.”

Savaşta propaganda

Savaş düşmanın yenilmesiyle değil azim ve iradesinin kırılmasıyla sona erer. Bu nedenle düşmana herhangi bir başarı şansının kalmadığının kuvvetli şekilde hissettirilmesi gerekir. Bunun en önemli aracı psikolojik harp, yaygın kullanımıyla propagandadır. Bir ülkede iç cephe düşmana karşı ne kadar kenetlenirse, propaganda faaliyeti o kadar başarılı olur. Ülke içindeki çatlak sesler düşmanın direnme azmini kamçılar. Devletin görevi savaş esnasında bozguncu sesleri kesmektir. Savaş bir oyun değil bir ülkenin ve bütün bir milletin kaderini etkileyecek hayati bir faaliyettir. Savaş sürerken düşman lehinde propaganda yapmak ihanet anlamına gelir. Bu tür girişimleri engelleyemeyen devletler ağır bir fatura öderler.

TTB NEYİN NESİDİR?

Maalesef, Türk Tabipleri Birliği (TTB) yapısı itibarıyla HDP çizgisinde bir meslek kuruluşudur. Bu yönüyle de emperyalist merkezlerin emir ve hizmetindedir. Böyle bir durum tabiplerimiz açısından tam bir yüz karasıdır. Bu durumdan ülkedeki bütün tabipler az ya da çok sorumludur. Demek ki tabiplerimiz dünya nimetleri peşinde koşarken, ülkelerine karşı bazı görevleri ihmal etmişlerdir. Bu kuruluşun bildirisi tam anlamıyla Mehmetçik karşıtlığıdır. En büyük emperyalist merkez olan ABD ve onun denetimindeki eli kanlı teröristlere karşı yürütülen savaş dünyadaki en haklı ve en meşru savaştır. İnsanlık adına da yürütülen bu savaşı karalamak, ancak hümanizm ve Türkiye karşıtlığıyla açıklanabilir.

Bu eylemin kendiliğinden ortaya çıktığını düşünmek safdillik olur. Emperyalist merkezlerin karanlık psikolojik harp odalarının en çok kullandığı tema, barış söylemi ile bozgunculuğu kışkırtmaktır. Çünkü dünyanın istisnasız her ülkesinde olayın doğasını kavrayamayan iyi niyetli insanlar çoğunluğu teşkil eder ve bunlar barış söyleminden etkilenir. İşte düşman propaganda makinesi bu alana sızmaya çalışır. Türkiye’de TTB tetikçi olarak seçilmiştir. Daha sonra onun arkasına saklanan siyasi partiler, basın ve televizyonun yıldızları (!) ile konunun istismar edilmesi ve gündemde tutulması hedeflenmiştir. Amaç mümkün olduğu kadar bozgunculuğu, TBMM dâhil ülkenin her yerinde tartışmaya açmaktır. Nitekim CHP Genel Başkanı Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu bu bildiriyi Meclis’te okumuştur.

KONTROLLÜ BOZGUNCULUK

TTB’nin hangi niteliklerde tabiplerden oluştuğunu ve nasıl bir siyasi çizgide olduğunu bütün siyasi partiler ve emperyalist propaganda makinelerinin ucuz mürekkebi olan yazar, çizer, sunucu takımı bal gibi bilmektedir. Ancak taşıdıkları misyon gereği şu yolu izlemektedirler: “Yapısı hiçbir koşulda gündeme getirilmeden TTB sanki masum bir meslek kuruluşu gibi tanıtılmakta, daha sonra TTB bildirisine karşı olunduğu, Mehmetçik’le kalplerin birlikte çarptığı ve fakat TTB’nin demokrasi kapsamında görüş bildirme özgürlüğüne saygı duyulması gerektiği ifade edilmektedir.” Çünkü siyaset dışında bulunan milyonların TTB’nin varlığından bile haberi yoktur. Böylece TTB’nin yıkıcı ve bölücü bildirisi, kafaları karıştıracak şekilde tekrar tekrar gündeme getirilmektedir.

Bilinçli bir aydın, gerçek bir yurtsever, sorumlu bir gazeteci bu nitelikte bir meslek kuruluşunu ağzına bile almaz! Eğer bir kişi, “Ben TTB’nin görüşüne katılmıyorum ama…” diyorsa, dilinden dökülen ne olursa olsun, gerçekte TSK’nın Afrin Harekâtı’na karşıdır. Halkımızın ezici çoğunluğunu karşısına almamak, gerçek misyonunu maskelemek için dolaylı bir yöntemle kontrollü bozgunculuk yapmaktadır. Oluşturulan bulanık suda CHP ve HDP bir vites yükselterek açıkça bu bildiriye sahip çıkmıştır. Hem bu bildiriye sahip çıkıp hem de Mehmetçik’i desteklemek ne yaman bir çelişkidir. Bu bozguncu bildirinin TBMM duvarlarından yankılanması son kerte üzücü ve düşündürücüdür. Gelişmeleri arka arkaya koyduğumuzda organize bir eylemle karşı karşıya kaldığımız ortadadır.

Türk devleti, hiç kimseden çekinmeden ve zerre kadar tereddüt etmeden bütün kurum ve kuruluşlarıyla bu tür bozguncu faaliyetleri her türlü tertip ve tedbiri alarak durdurmak zorundadır. Ülkemiz ve insanlık adına emperyalizmle kıran kırana mücadele eden Mehmetçik’in arkadan hançerlenmesini seyredenleri tarih affetmez!

Savaş nedir?

Savaş hiçbir hal ve şartta kendiliğinden oluşan, birdenbire ortaya çıkan bir eylem değildir. Savaş bir sorun sahası üzerindeki siyasetin devamıdır. Savaşta sadece kullanılan vasıtalar değişir. Diğer bir ifadeyle savaş, siyasetin başka vasıtalarla sürdürülmesidir. Politik hedef amaç, savaş ise araçtır. Bu nedenle yürütülen savaş eylemleri politik hedefe hizmet etmeli, ona uygun olmalıdır.

MİLLET-ORDU-HÜKÜMET DENGESİ

Savaş sadece askerlerin çatışması değildir. Millet, ordu ve hükümet sürecin içindedir. Milletin ezici bir çoğunluğunun haklı ve meşru gördüğü bir savaş daha kolay verilir. Aynı zamanda milletin tarihten gelen karakteri de bir faktördür. Örneğin, Türkler savaşçı bir millet olarak tanınır. Milletin ruh hali ve sosyogenetik kodları büyük ölçüde savaşan orduya da yansır. Ordu yaptığı plana göre savaşır ama değişen koşullar ve beklenmeyen durumlara karşı savaşma yeteneğini sürdürmesi cephedeki üst düzey komutanların cesareti ve yeteneğine doğrudan bağlıdır. Hükümet politik süreci yönetir. Başlangıçtaki politik hedef değiştiği takdirde, ordunun yeni ve başka bir askeri eylem içinde olacağını bilmek zorundadır. Savaş kuramı (teorisi), bir anlamda “millet-ordu-hükümet” üçgeninin denge noktasında buluşmanın önemini vurgular.

DÜŞMANIN HARBE DEVAM AZİM VE İRADESİ

Reklamdan sonra devam ediyor

Savaşı gerçekte fiziki güç kullanarak düşmana kendi irademizi kabul ettirmek için yaparız. Bunun en güvenli yolu düşmanın silahlarını elinden almaktır. Savaş kuramına göre harbin asıl hedefi, düşmanı silahtan arındırmaktır. En azından düşmanın içine bu duruma düşeceği yönünde korku salmaktır. Günümüzde büyük cephe savaşları pek muhtemel olmadığından düşmanın harbe devam azim ve iradesinin kırılması hayati önem arz eder. Elinde silah olmasına rağmen, düşman iradesinin kırıldığı sayısız örnek vardır. Unutmayalım ki irade hiçbir zaman gücünü mantıktan almaz! Çok çeşitli faktörlere bağlıdır. Askeri kuvvetler gibi bir ölçüme de tabii tutulamaz! Savaşa devam gücü, irade ve kaynakların çarpımına eşittir. Yani kaynakların olma durumunda bile irade yoksa bu teslimiyet anlamına gelir. Düşmanın savaş gücünü yok etmek için düşmanın askeri kuvvetleri yanında, moral gücünü de imha etmek zorunludur. Çünkü fiziki ve moral kuvvetler birbirleriyle ayrılmaz şekilde bütünleşmiştir. Ruhun bedensel güç üzerinde yadsınamaz itici bir etkisi vardır.

İYİ NİYET-CESARET

Harpte iyi niyet büyük hatalara neden olur. Fiziki kuvveti bütün unsurlarıyla tereddüt etmeden kullananlar harbi kazanmaya daha yakındır. Neticede savaş bir kuvvet kullanma eylemidir ve bu alanda hiçbir sınır yoktur. Sınır koyan kendi zaferini baltalar! Taraflardan biri savaş kararı verdiğinde, diğer taraf başka seçeneklerle sonuç almayı düşünürse, çok büyük ihtimalle mağlup olacaktır. İki taraf da silahlanmış halde ise bir anlaşma olmadığı takdirde sükûnetin nedeni tarafların harekete geçmek için daha uygun bir zamanı beklemeleridir. Biri için olumlu olan zaman, kaçınılmaz olarak diğeri için olumsuz olacaktır. Harekâtı başlatan tarafın duraklaması harbin iyi yönetilemediğini gösterir.

Bir muharebede çeşitli tehlikeler, bedensel güçlükler ve acılarla karşı karşıya kalınır. Bu nedenle muharip bir kişi için en önemli özellik cesarettir. Bu olmadığı takdirde diğer özellikler de anlamını yitirir. Vücut ve ruh ya doğuştan ya da eğitimle muharip bir yapı içinde olmalıdır. Akıl hem cesaret duygusunu uyandırır hem de onu besler ve destekler. Çünkü mermi sağanağında düşüncelerden çok duygular insana hâkim olur. Savaşta belirsizliklerin oranı her hal ve şartta yapılan planın çok üzerindedir. Şans ve tesadüfler, hiçbir insani faaliyette olmadığı kadar savaşın doğal bir parçasıdır. Savaş bir sis bulutu içinde devam eder. Bu nedenle sezgileriyle gerçekliği yakalayıp duruma hızla uyum sağlayan ince zekâya sahip komutanlar belirleyici olur. Tehlikeler, bedensel zorluklar, belirsizlikler ve tesadüfler ortamında rota çizebilen muhariplere ihtiyaç vardır.

Bu nedenle görünürde savaşta her şey çok basit ama onu icra etmek son kerte zordur. Üstün akıl kapasitesine sahip olmayanlar savaş harekâtını başarı ile yönetemez!

Türkiye’nin gücü

Türkiye’nin küresel etki yaratabilen bölgesel bir güç merkezi olduğu Zeytin Dalı Harekâtı (ZDH) ile bir kez daha anlaşılmıştır. Bugünlerde gezegenin her yerindeki güç merkezleri nefeslerini tutarak Türkiye’yi izlemektedir. Hatırlanırsa, Kudüs krizinde Türkiye dünyayı ayağa kaldırmış, ABD’yi BM’nin hem Güvenlik Konseyi’nde hem de Genel Kurulu’nda mahkûm ettirmiştir. ABD toplam 15 üyeden 14’ünün karşı çıktığı Güvenlik Konseyi’nde ancak veto hakkını kullanarak ayakta kalabilmiş, Genel Kurul’da ise nakavt olmuştur. Türkiye’nin bu gücü, mevcut yeteneklerinin yanı sıra tarihi birikiminden kaynaklanmaktadır.

TARİH YAZAN TÜRKİYE

Türkiye’den çıkan küçük bir ses bile dünya ölçeğinde büyük bir yankı uyandırmaktadır. Dünyanın her yerinde gözü kulağı Türkiye’de olan kitleler vardır. Ayrıca Türk milleti, sağduyusu ve üstün bilinç düzeyi ile tarihin içinden çıkan en büyük milletlerden birisi, belki de birincisidir. Bunun en büyük göstergesi, ABD karşıtlığında dünya ölçeğinde birinci olmasıdır. Almanya sadece para vererek bir bölgede geçici bir etki yaratabilir. Ancak Türkiye tarihi ve kültürel mirası ile hiçbir şey yapmadan, sadece kendisi olarak dünyanın birçok bölgesinde kalıcı etki yaratır. Bu yalın gerçek nedeniyle NATO/AB süreçlerinde zoraki müttefiklik ile Türkiye baskı altına alınarak uysallaştırılmış, doğal etki alanından, tarihi ve kültürel ortaklığı olan dostlarından uzaklaştırılmıştır. Çok şükür o karanlık dönemler sona ermiş, Türkiye kendi jeopolitiğine geri dönmüştür. Türkiye artık oyun kuran, tarih yazan bir ülkedir.

ZEYTİN DALI HAREKÂTI (ZDH)

Türkiye Fırat Kalkanı Harekâtı (FKH) ile terör koridoruna bir hançer saplamıştır. Ancak bu harekâtta ağırlıklı olarak IŞİD ile savaşmıştır. ABD çeşitli yöntemlerle harekâtı engellemeye çalışmış, ancak başarılı olamamıştır. Daha sonra harekât alanını daraltma çabalarında, maalesef Avrasya blokuna dâhil bazı ülkelerin fahiş hataları nedeniyle nispeten başarılı olmuştur. Türkiye Münbiç Harekâtını kesmek zorunda kalmıştır. Diğer taraftan ZDH, FKH’ya göre kapsam ve nitelik açısından değil ve fakat verdiği mesaj açısından çok daha önemlidir. Çünkü ZDH ile Türkiye doğrudan ABD’nin kara gücü olan PYD’yi hedef almış, ABD’nin doldurduğu silah/cephane depolarını havaya uçurmuştur. Bütün dünya büyük bir takdir ve biraz da şaşkınlık içinde Türkiye bu cesur harekâtına şapka çıkarmaktadır. Türkiye beka sorunu olduğu takdirde mütecavizin niteliği ne olursa olsun silaha sarılacağını bütün dünyaya bir kez daha göstermiştir.

BATI DA HAVLU ATTI!

Türkiye’nin yarattığı büyük etkinin en büyük emarelerinden birisi de gerçekte huzursuz olan Batı ülkelerinin ülkemize yönelik yumuşak söylemleridir. Dün PYD’yi IŞİD’e karşı insanlık adına mücadele eden özgürlük savaşçısı olarak takdim ederek silah ve cephane verme yarışına girenlerin bugün çark etmesi, en azından mahcup eleştirilerde bulunması Türkiye’nin gücünü göstermektedir. Türkiye milli maksatlarla silah çektiğinde, “Verdiğimiz silahları kullanamazsınız!” diyenlerin sesi çok cılız çıkmaktadır. Türkiye’nin yüzde 70 oranında milli mühimmatla yürüttüğü bu harekât bize biz kez daha milli savunma sanayinin hayatiyetini hatırlatmıştır. Önümüzdeki dönemlerde çılgın projeler yerine kaynaklar bu alana yönlendirilmelidir. Hiçbir şey ülkemizin milli güvenliğinden daha önemli olamaz!

ABD her türlü silah, cephane ve teçhizat ile donattığı, maaşlarını ödediğini PYD’yi Afrin’de bedelsiz olarak satışa çıkarmıştır. Her seviyedeki ABD devlet yetkilisi, “Afrin’in ABD planlarında yeri olmadığını” ifade etmektedir. Bu şartlar altında PKK’nın önünde iki seçenek kalmıştır: Ya teslim olacaklar ya da etkisiz hale getirileceklerdir. Türk devletinin şefkatli kollarına sığınanlar hiçbir zaman pişman olmazlar…

Eskiden üçüncü derecede AB memurlarının ayar verdiği Türkiye’ye karşı şimdi büyük Batı ülkeleri gizli kapaklı bir araya gelerek ortak zemin yaratmaya çalışmaktadır. Görüldüğü gibi Batı’nın denetiminden çıkan Türkiye’nin gücü ve etkisi dünyanın her yerinde artmaktadır. Bundan böyle Türkiye’yi hesaba katmayanların canı yanar!

Bilderberg, Böke, delege, CHP

Yaşadığımız gezegende 300 kadar aile çarpık ve gizli amaçları için insanları köle gibi gütmeyi hedefliyor… Bu maksatla örtülü bir teşkilatlanmaya gidildiği yönünde çok sayıda emare var! Bazıları bu oluşumu “Gizli Dünya Hükümeti” olarak adlandırıyor. Bu yapının kimi zaman hükümetlerin içinde, kimi zaman yanında, kimi zaman ensesinde, kimi zaman da üzerinde olduğu söyleniyor. Bu oluşumun ayrıntıları bu yazının konusu değil! Ancak Bilderberg’in bu yapının en alt basamağı olduğunu söyleyebiliriz. Diğer bir ifade ile her ülkeden “kendisini fasulye gibi nimetten sanan” kullanıma hazır kişiler bu toplantıda arz-ı endam ediyorlar…

ULUS DEVLETLERE KARŞI SAVAŞ

İsmini 1954 yılında ilk kez düzenlenen toplantıya ev sahipliği yapan Hollanda’daki Bilderberg otelinden alır. Bilderberg’in, “Avrupa ile Kuzey Amerika arasındaki bağları güçlendirmek için yola çıktığı” ifade edilir. Ancak Avrupa’daki ulusçuluk fikirlerini kademe kademe aşındırarak, kendi denetiminde birleşik bir Avrupa yaratmak için çaba sarf ettiği görülmüştür. İngiliz ulusçuluğun kalesi kabul edilen Lordlar Kamarası 1988 yılında bu grup tarafından dağıtılmıştır. Ulus devletlerin yıkılması, küresel düzeyde sermaye ve mal dolaşımı için tüm engellerin ortadan kaldırılması temel hedefleri arasındadır.

Bilderberg yılda bir kez toplanır. Finans kapital ve silah sanayinin çıkarları doğrultusunda dünyaya nasıl nizam verileceğine dair politikalar saptanır. Toplantı görüşmeleri ve çıkarılan sonuçlar gizlidir ve asla kamuoyu ile paylaşılmaz. Hiçbir katılımcı görüşme içeriğini açıklayamaz; aksi halde özel cezalandırma mekanizmalarının muhatabı olur! Türkiye gibi ülkelerden, işlerine yarayacak siyasi partilerin ve oligarşik yapıların temsilcileri davet edilir. Geçmişte AKP’li ya da AKP’ye yakın Ali Babacan, Cengiz Çandar, Fehmi Koru gibi mümtaz şahsiyetler (!) davet ediliyordu. 2015 yılında ise Avusturya’daki toplantıya CHP’den Selin Sayek Böke katıldı.

KUVAYİ MİLLİYE’DEN BİLDERBERG’E!

Yeni CHP’nin bilinen neoliberal politikaları dikkate alındığında Sayek Böke’nin davet edilmesi Bilderberg açısından son kerte isabetli oldu. CHP’nin eşit vatandaşlık, özerklik, tarikatlara özgürlük gibi söylemleri de Bilderberg hedefleri ile uyum gösteriyor. Cumhuriyet’i kuran ve yedi düvele karşı savaşan bir partinin küresel elitlerin en alt düzeydeki masalarında çerez olması kaderin garip bir cilvesi olmalıydı. Ama ortada daha ilginç ve daha da garip bir başka gerçeklik daha vardı.

Selin Sayek Böke, “İstihbarat raporlarını görmeden PYD için terör örgütüdür diyemem!” söylemi ile bütün Türkiye’yi şaşkına çevirmişti. Oysaki daha birkaç gün önce ABD Ulusal İstihbarat Direktörü, “PYD’nin PKK’nın milisleri olduğunu” itiraf etmişti. Böyle bir zihniyet tabii ki Bilderberg’in gülü olacaktı. Ama son CHP kurultayında, PYD hakkındaki sözleri henüz kulaklarda çınlamaya devam ederken, bu Hanımefendi Parti Meclisi için tam 687 oy aldı. Bu rakam ikinci en yüksek oy oldu! Bu ise karşımıza daha hazin bir tablo çıkardı. CHP’nin gerçek sahibi olan delegeler bir Bilderberg gülünü zirveye taşıyarak, bu partinin toplu olarak kimin değirmenine su taşıdığını dünya âleme göstermiş oldu.

ÇIKMAZ BU YOL BİR YERE!

Türkiye önümüzdeki dönemde Gizli Dünya Hükümeti, AB-D ve diğer emperyalist merkezlerden farklı bir rota çizmelidir. Çünkü bu merkezlerin hedefi Türkiye’yi bölmektir. Bu merkezlerle paralel bir rotaya girmek Türkiye’nin bölünmesini sessiz olarak kabul etmek anlamına gelir. Çok iyi biliyoruz ki CHP’deki bu çarpık delege kompozisyonu seçmenlerin ve tabanın talep ve arzusu dışında oluşturulmuştur. Bu bir yerde seçmen iradesinin ustalıkla istismar edilmesi anlamına gelmektedir. CHP’li seçmenlerin en az yüzde 80’i PYD’yi terör örgütü olarak görmektedir. Ama “İstihbarat raporu olmadan bir şey diyemem!” bir kişi delegeden en fazla ikinci oyu alıyorsa, ortada büyük bir çarpıklık vardır. CHP tepeden tırnağa değişmeden Türkiye için umut olamaz! Mevcut siyasi partiler yasası ile böyle bir devrimci atılım yapmak ise deveye hendek atlatmakla eşdeğerdir.

Büyük savaşa doğru

Türkiye hızla bir savaşa doğru çekiliyor ya da bu savaşı yapmak zorunda bırakılacak. ABD ve Avrupa Türkiye’nin 15 Temmuz 2016 darbesini önlemesini hala içine sindirmiş değil. Hele darbeden sonra yapılan FETÖ temizliği, alınan tedbirler onları şaşırtmış ve kafalarını allak bullak etmişti ve hala da etmeye devam ediyor. Türkiye’nin kontrolden çıkışını, içerdeki müttefikleri olan FETÖ’cüleri kaybetmelerini bir türlü hazmedemiyorlar. Onlar için kolay değil binlerce ajanlarını kaybettiler. Darbe teşebbüsü üzerinden altı ay zaman geçti. Yeni planlar yapmaya başladılar. Başlangıçta B planları yoktu ama şoku atlattıktan sonra sinsi planlarını yenileştirerek devreye soktular.

Türkiye’yi bir çıkmazda bırakacakları açık. Önümüze getirdikleri seçenekler ya teslimiyet ya da savaş. Türkiye’ye başka seçenek bırakmıyorlar. ABD ve Avrupa’nın hazırlıkları bu yönde devam ediyor. Bölge ülkeleri özellikle İran’ın tutumu önemli ancak İran’ın tercihi ABD ve Avrupa’nın yanı olabilir. Aynı şeyi Rusya için söyleyebilirim. Rusya bir süper güç ve bu güçlerin yani büyük devletlerin etki ve ilgi alanları çok geniş olduğu için faklı düşünebilirler. Farklı çıkarlarını dikkate alarak politikalarını değiştirebilirler. Yani içinde bulunduğumuz cephede hiçbir şey garanti değil.

Bütün bunları son günlerde ortaya çıkan söylentiler, gizli görüşmelerden sızan bilgilerden yaptığım analiz ve değerlendirmelere göre söylüyorum. Bunlardan birisi Rusya tarafından hazırlandığı ifade edilen Suriye’nin taslak anayasası. Bu taslağa göre Kürt bölgesine özerklik veriliyor ve Türkiye devre dışı bırakılıyor. Söz konusu taslaktan ABD ve İran da haberli. Yani onlarla da görüşülmüş. Astana’daki görüşmelerde Rusya askeri heyetine başkanlık eden, Rusya Genelkurmay Başkanlığı Ana Harekat Dairesi Başkan Yardımcısı Stanislav Hacimagomedov, söz konusu taslağın Suriye’nin bölünmez toprak bütünlüğünü öngördüğünü belirtmektedir. Ancak bu konuda daha önce görüştüğüm Rus yetkililer Kürt bölgelerine otonomi konusunda vaatleri olduğunu söylediler. Böyle bir şey vuku olursa Türkiye hem içerden hem de Irak ve Suriye kuzeyinden PKK ile kuşatılacak. Ya bunu kabule zorlanacak ya da ABD ve Avrupa desteğindeki PKK ile savaşacak.

Reklamdan sonra devam ediyor

Diğer bir söylenti ve duyum ise ABD, Avrupa, Rusya ve İran’ın Irak’tan başlayıp Suriye’nin kuzeyinde, Akdeniz’e kadar uzanacak, içine Türkiye’nin topraklarının bir kısmını da içine alan bir Kürt özerk bölgesinin tesisi konusunda anlaştıkları ile ilgili. Bu ne kadar doğrudur bilinmez ancak gizli toplantılarda konuşulduğu ve Türkiye’nin Anadolu’ya hapsedileceği de aşikar.

MOSSAD’a yakın Depka sitesinde yer alan bir haritada Suriye güvenlik bölgelerine ayrılmış. Fırat’ın doğusundaki Kürt bölgesi güvenlikli bölgelerden biri ve ABD kontrolünde. İkinci güvenlikli bölge Fırat’ın batısından başlıyor Afrin ve İdlib’i de içine alıyor ve Türkiye’nin kontrolünde. Üçüncü bölge Suriye’nin batısı ve Halep’i içine alıyor. İran ve Hizbullah devre dışı bırakılıyor.

Bütün bu planlamalar ya da söylentiler bir gerçeği ifade ediyor. Türkiye’nin güneyinde ve Türkiye topraklarında özerk Kürt bölgeleri kurulması planlanmış ve bu bir şekilde hayata geçirilmek isteniyor. Arkasındaki güçler de belli. Hazırlıklar bu yönde. Yeni planlama adım adım ortaya konuyor ve uygulanmaya çalışılıyor.

Güneydoğudaki terör, batı şehirlerimizdeki patlamalar, ekonomik taarruz ve ekonomik çökertme faaliyetlerinden sonra da Türkiye PKK veya IŞİD veya her ikisinden birden kaynaklanan bir iç savaşla tehdit ediliyor ve bir iç savaşa doğru götürülüyor. Bu sorunların çözümü için iki seçenek bırakılıyor. Türkiye’ye ya bunları kabul et ya da iç savaşa gideceksin. Türkiye ABD ve Avrupa desteğindeki PKK ile büyük bir savaşa, hem içerde hem dışarıdaki bir savaşa hazırlıklı olmalıdır. Türkiye bu savaşı yapmadan bu sorunlardan kurtulamayacaktır.

Yeni bir dünya kuruluyor

Evet yeni bir dünya kuruluyor.

Bu başlığı abartılı bulanlar olabilir, ancak yine de dünya dönmektedir. Dünyanın dönmesi, dünyayı öküzün boynuzunda sananlar için inanılması imkansız bir saptamadır. Dünya tepsi gibi olsaydı, Yeni bir dünya kurulmayacaktı.

ÖN CEPHE BATI ASYA

Batı Asya, dünyanın ön cephesidir; Yeni Dünyanın da ön cephesidir. Eskiyen Dünya, Batı Asya’dan temizleniyor. İşte Yeni Dünyadan gelen ilk haberler:

| Irak Ordusu Kerkük’e ve Sincar’a girdi. O asker, Irak Ordusunun kişiliğinde Yeni Dünyanın kuvvetidir. Eskiyen Dünyanın efendisi olan ABD’nin piyonları ise, Kerkük’ten ve Sincar’dan tek bir kurşun atmadan kaçtılar.

| Türk, Rus ve İran askeri, İdlib’e barış ve huzur getiriyor ve Suriye’nin bütünleşmesine katkıda bulunuyor.

| Suriye, yıllardır sürdürdüğü savaşı kesin zafere götürüyor. Suriye, birleşiyor.

| Türkiye’nin ve İran’ın ABD tehdidinden kurtulması ve Bölücü Terörü bütünüyle temizlemesi ufukta görünmüştür.

| Rusya’yı ve Çin’i kuşatma planları bozulmuştur.

|Batı Asya ülkeleri, ABD emperyalizmine ve İsrail’e karşı birleşmiş ve kendi geleceğine sahip çıkmıştır. Yeni Dünya’nın öncüsü, Batı Asya’dır.

TEMEL GÜÇ ASYA’DA

Yeni Dünyanın derinliğinde, Çin, Hindistan ve Orta Asya ülkeleri bulunuyor. Yeni Dünyanın temel gücü Asya’dadır. Türkiye ve Orta Asya cumhuriyetleri, o esas gücün içindedir. Türkler, Yeni Dünyanın neredeyse her coğrafyasında var.

Çin, 2016 yılında dünyanın en çok üreten ülkesi oldu.

Dünün sömürgesi Hindistan, herkese parmak ısırtıyor.

Çin, Hindistan, Rusya, Orta Asya, Vietnam, Türkiye ve İran’ın dünya ekonomisinin büyümesindeki paylarının toplamı yüzde 70’e yaklaşıyor. ABD ve AB’nin toplamı, yüzde 16. Asya’nın büyümeye katkısı Atlantik efendilerinin dört katından fazla. Dünyada icatların ve sanatın öncülüğü de artık Asya’da. Çin, uçaktan iki kat hızlı, saatte 2000 km hızla giden tren yapıyor, 4000 km hızdaki tren için çalışmalar bitmek üzere.

BÖLÜNEN ATLANTİK BİRLEŞEN AVRASYA

ABD’nin inişe geçmesiyle ve Asya’nın yükselişiyle birlikte Atlantik sistemi bölünüyor. Avrupa’nın büyükleri olan Almanya ve Fransa, kendi ifadeleriyle Ortadoğu’nun “Trumplaşmasına” karşılar, ABD’ye tavırlarını geliştiriyorlar. En son İngiltere’yi de yanlarına alarak, Washington yönetimine “İran’a dokunma” dediler. Almanya’nın eski Başbakanlarından Schröder, 16 Ekim 2017 günü Rusya ve Türkiye ile ilişkilerin düzeltilmesini savunan etkili bir açıklama yaptı.

Almanya ve Fransa’nın Asya ile vazgeçemeyeceği bağları var. Avrupa’nın büyükleri, ABD emperyalizminden uzaklaşıyorlar ve yüzlerini Asya’ya çevirdiler. AVRASYA, başka deyişle AVRupa+ASYA, yani Eski Kıta yeniden birleşiyor. Hem ekonomide, hem de siyasette.

YENİ DÜNYA YENİ UYGARLIK

Kurulan Yeni Dünya, kapitalizmin yeni bir aşaması değil, yeni bir uygarlıktır. Asya’dan yükselen uygarlık, bireyci değil toplumcu yönelişler taşıyor. Özel çıkarcılık değil, kamuculuk yükseliştedir. Yeni Dünya, Hegemonyacılığa izin vermeyecek ağırlıklara sahiptir. Paylaşarak Birleşme çizgisi yükselen değerdir.

Yeni Uygarlığın kuruluşu, aslında 20. Yüzyılın başında Rus, Türk, İran, Çin ve Hindistan devrimleriyle başladı. Çin’de okutulan Tarih Dersi kitabının kapağına konduğu gibi, bu uygarlığın öncüleri, Lenin, Atatürk, Mao ve Gandi’dir. Türkiye, 1876, 1908 ve 1920 devrimleriyle Yeni Uygarlığı ateşleyen ülkelerin ön safındadır.

BÜYÜK KARAR KÖKLÜ ÇÖZÜM

Vatan Partisi Genel Başkan Yardımcısı E. Tüma Soner Polat’ın 7 Ekim 2017 günü belirttiği gibi, Türkiye İdlib harekâtıyla Avrasya Bloğuna fiilen girmiştir.”

Türkiye, Yeni Dünyanın kurulması mücadelesinin ön cephesindedir.

Türkiye’nin Rusya, İran, Irak ve Suriye ile oluşturduğu ittifak, Yeni Dünyanın kuruluşunun ilk büyük zaferini getirmiştir.

Türkiye’nin Yeni Dünyadaki yerini alması, büyük karardır, köklü çözümdür. Yaşadığımız süreç, bir devrim sürecidir. Türkiye, 2014 baharında Silivri duvarlarının yıkılmasıyla zincirlerini kırmış ve Avrasya’ya yönelmiştir.

Vatan Savaşımızı, tıpkı Birinci İstiklâl Savaşımız gibi Batı emperyalizmine karşı veriyoruz. Artık İkinci İstiklâl Savaşımızın zaferler dönemine girdik. Bunun adı devrimdir. Hasadını milletçe toplayacağız.

ATLANTİK SİSTEMİNDE KULDUK YENİ DÜNYADA BEYİZ

Vatan Partisi’nin Programı, bir bir Türkiye’nin gündemine giriyor ve gerçekleşiyor.

Yeni bir dünya kuruluyor.

Türkiye, yeni dünyadaki konumuna yerleşiyor.

Eskiyen dünyada Atlantik’e bağımlıydık, Yeni Dünyada bağımsız olacağız.

Eski Dünya, İstiklâl Savaşımızın değerlerini çiğniyordu, Yeni Dünya İstiklâl Savaşları üzerinde yükseliyor.

Eskiyen Dünya, Kemalist Devrimimizi yıkıma uğrattı, Yeni Dünyada Kemalist Devrimin iklimi var.

Eskiyen dünyada kulduk, Yeni Dünyada kul yok, hepimiz beyiz.

Öyle bir mecraya girdik ki, Kemalist Devrimin tamamlanması artık Türkiye’nin gündemindedir.

Bu amaçla bir Millî Hükümet kurmak, önümüzdeki görevdir.

Disguised gunmen massacre at least 29 at Iran military parade

By: AP

The attack in Ahvaz saw gunfire sprayed into a crowd of marching Revolutionary Guardsmen, bystanders and government officials watching from a nearby riser. Suspicion immediately fell on the region’s Arab separatists, who previously only attacked unguarded oil pipelines under the cover of darkness.

Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif immediately blamed the attack on regional countries and their “U.S. masters,” calling the gunmen “terrorists recruited, trained armed and paid” by foreign powers. That further raises tensions in the Mideast as Tehran’s nuclear deal with world powers is in jeopardy after President Donald Trump withdrew America from the accord.

“Iran will respond swiftly and decisively in defense of Iranian lives,” Zarif wrote on Twitter.

The attack came as rows of Revolutionary Guardsmen marched down Ahvaz’s Quds, or Jerusalem, Boulevard, which like many other places around the country saw an annual parade marking the start of Iran’s long 1980s war with Iraq. Images captured by state television showed journalists and onlookers turn to look toward the first shots, then the rows of marchers broke as soldiers and civilians sought cover under sustained gunfire.

“Oh God! Go go go! Lie down! Lie down!” one man screamed as a woman fled with her baby.

Bloodied bystanders

In the aftermath, paramedics tended to the wounded as soldiers, some bloodied in their dress uniforms, helped their comrades to ambulances.

The state-run IRNA news agency said the attack killed 25 people and wounded 60. It said gunmen wore Guard uniforms and targeted a riser where military and police commanders were sitting.

“We suddenly realized that some armed people wearing fake military outfits started attacking the comrades from behind (the stage) and then opened fire on women and children,” an unnamed wounded soldier told state TV. “They were just aimlessly shooting around and did not have a specific target.”

Details about the attack remained unclear immediately afterward. The semi-official Fars news agency, which is close to the Guard, meanwhile said two gunmen on a motorcycle wearing khaki uniforms carried out the attack.

Khuzestan Gov. Gholamreza Shariati told IRNA that two gunmen were killed and two others were arrested.

State TV hours later reported that all four gunmen had been killed, with three dying during the attack and one later succumbing to his wounds at a hospital.

Who carried out the assault also remained in question. State television immediately described the assailants as “takfiri gunmen,” a term previously used to describe the Islamic State group. Iran has been deeply involved in the fight against IS in Iraq and has aided embattled Syrian President Bashar Assad in his country’s long war.

But in the hours following the attack, state media and government officials seemed to come to the consensus that Arab separatists in the region were responsible. The separatists, however, previously only conducted pipeline bombings at night or hit-and-run attacks.

The separatists accuse Iran’s Persian-dominated government of discriminating against its ethnic Arab minority. Iran has blamed its Mideast arch-rival, the Sunni kingdom of Saudi Arabia, for funding their activity. State media in Saudi Arabia did not immediately acknowledge the attack.

Arab separatists or the Islamic State?

Yacoub Hor al-Tostari, a spokesman for the Arab Struggle Movement to Liberate Ahvaz, later told The Associated Press that members of an umbrella group of Ahvazi activists his organization leads carried out the attack. Al-Tostari said the attack undermined the Iranian government “on the day it wants to give a message to the world that it is powerful and in control.”

The Islamic State group also claimed responsibility in a message on its Amaaq news agency, but provided no evidence it carried out the assault and initially wrongly said the attack targeted President Hassan Rouhani, who was in Tehran. The militants have made a string of false claims in the wake of major defeats in Iraq and Syria.

From Tehran, Rouhani watched a military parade that included ballistic missiles capable of reaching Israel and U.S. military bases in the Mideast. Rouhani said the U.S. withdraw from the nuclear dealwas an attempt to get Iran to give up its military arsenal.

“Iran neither put its defensive arms aside nor lessens its defensive capabilities,” Rouhani said. “Iran will add to its defensive power day by day.”

Saturday’s attack comes after a coordinated June 7, 2017 Islamic State group assault on parliament and the shrine of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in Tehran. At least 18 people were killed and more than 50 wounded.

Khomeini led the 1979 Islamic Revolution that toppled the Western-backed shah to become Iran’s first supreme leader until his death in 1989. The assault shocked Tehran, which largely has avoided militant attacks in the decades after the tumult surrounding the Islamic Revolution.

In the last decade, such attacks have been incredibly rare. In 2009 more than 40 people, including six Guard commanders, were killed in a suicide attack by Sunni extremists in Iran’s Sistan and Baluchistan province.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard is a paramilitary force answerable only to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. The Guard also has vast holdings in Iran’s economy.

Iranian officials blame US and Israel for deadly ambush on military parade

By: World Israel News Staff

Gunmen disguised as soldiers opened fire at an annual Iranian military parade on Saturday, with the death toll reaching 29 in the bloodiest attack the Islamic Republic has seen in years.

The attack took place in Ahvaz, with the assailants apparently targeting Revolutionary Guardsmen.

While suspicion immediately fell on the Arab separatists in the region, who have mounted previous attacks, several top Iranian officials also pointed fingers at Israel and the United States.

Almost immediately, Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif blamed regional rivals and their “U.S. masters,” which was interpreted as a reference to Israel and Saudi Arabia.

Echoing Zarif’s comments, an Iranian army spokesman also fingered Israel and the US, without citing any support for his accusations.

Brigadier General Abolfazl Shekarchi told Iran’s official news agency IRNA that the gunmen were “not from [the Islamic State] or other groups fighting [Iran’s] Islamic system … but are linked to America and [Israel’s intelligence agency] Mossad,” Times of Israel reported.

Iranian First Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri released a similar statement to Irans’s ISNA news service, “condemn[ing] the practice of tyrannical regimes that are mercenaries to advance the goals of the United States and Zionism.”

Jahangiri also referred to “American and Zionist goals, mercenaries, and the stability, security and integrity of the powerful Iran.”

Following the attack, the Arab Struggle Movement to Liberate Ahvaz, a separatist group in the region, told The Associated Press that members of an associated organization carried out the attack. A spokesman told the AP that the group wanted to undermine the Iranian government “on the day it wants to give a message to the world that it is powerful and in control.”

Israeli report exposes how Syrian fire took down Russian plane

By: JNS.org and World Israel News Staff

Following an urgent meeting between Israeli and Russian military officials after the downing of a Russian spy plane over Syria, a 40-page report reveals that Syria shot down the aircraft while responding to an Israeli airstrike.

On the night of Sept. 17, a Russian Il-20 reconnaissance plane carrying 15 crew members was shot down just after Israel attacked a weapons depot outside Latikia believed to be connected to Iranian-backed terror.

Russia initially blamed Israel for the incident, but Israel responded that while it had, in fact, performed the attack—an official admission Israel makes only very rarely—it was not responsible for the downed aircraft.

Israeli officials traveled to Moscow on Thursday to present the report, which shows that Syria fired dozens of barrages indiscriminately for 40 minutes following the attack, long after the Israeli planes returned to home soil. According to the report, one of the missiles hit the plane, causing it to crash.

In the report, Israel noted that Syria has become much more aggressive with its response to Israeli airstrikes, with the May 10 “Operation House of Cards” against more than 50 Iranian targets across Syria being met with approximately 170 Syrian anti-aircraft missiles.

Meanwhile, Russia’s defense ministry stated on Saturday that it would publish its initial investigation’s findings, reported Times of Israel.

Air Force awards contract for new helicopter

Secretary of the Air Force Public Affairs / Published September 24, 2018

WASHINGTON, D.C. (AFNS) — Today the Air Force awarded the first portion of a $2.38 billion firm-fixed-price contract to The Boeing Company for a UH-1N Replacement helicopter.

“Strong competition drove down costs for the program, resulting in $1.7 billion in savings to the taxpayer,” said Secretary of the Air Force Heather Wilson.

The original service cost estimate was $4.1 billion.

Today’s award of approximately $375 million is for the first four helicopters and includes the integration of non-developmental items. This additional equipment integrated into the aircraft will ensure the helicopters are ready to meet warfighter needs upon delivery.

The total program cost for the UH-1N Replacement Program reflects the exercise of all options and provides for the acquisition and sustainment of up to 84 MH-139 helicopters, training devices and associated support equipment to replace the legacy UH-1Ns. The new helicopter will be an important tool for Airmen charged with securing and defending the nation’s intercontinental ballistic missiles. The Air Force will also use the aircraft for training, test and operational support airlift.

The Air Force pursued a full and open competition to deliver increased capabilities to warfighters. This replacement will provide the necessary speed, range, endurance and carrying capacity needed to meet the requirements of five Air Force major commands, officials said.

“A safe, secure and effective nuclear enterprise is job one,” said Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David L. Goldfein. “It is imperative that we field a capable and effective helicopter to replace UH-1Ns providing security for our ICBMs and nuclear deterrence operations.”

The first operational helicopter delivery is expected in Fiscal Year 2021.

US Looking to Place More Spies Worldwide

By Jeff Seldin September 24, 2018

The United States’ premier spy agency is looking to expand its presence around the globe in order to eliminate so-called “intelligence gaps” and take on the growing threat from major powers like Russia and China.

CIA Director Gina Haspel on Monday called the shift from counterterrorism back to more traditional espionage against nation-states “a strategic priority,” saying the need to get better intelligence on current and potential U.S. rivals among “the hardest issues” facing the spy agency.

“We are sharpening our focus on nation-state adversaries,” Haspel told an audience at her alma mater, the University of Louisville, in her first public appearance since being sworn in as CIA director this past May.

Haspel also said she is intent on “increasing the number of officers stationed overseas.”

“Having a larger foreign footprint allows for a robust posture,” she said.

As part of that push, Haspel said the CIA is hoping to recruit more foreign language speakers, including those fluent in Chinese, Arabic, Farsi, Turkish, French and Spanish.

She also said the spy agency “is working more closely than ever with our allies across the world.”

Haspel’s comments reflect priorities laid out in the broader U.S. National Security Strategy late last year, which calls for countering moves by various adversaries to shift the global balance of power in ways that have been unfavorable to the United States.

China concerns

The CIA director voiced particular concerns about China, which she said was “working to diminish U.S. influence in order to advance their own goals.”

“We do monitor very closely what appears to be an effort to expand their influence beyond their own region, in places like Africa, Latin America, the Pacific islands, South Asia,” she said.

“We are concerned by some of the tactics they use, offering poor countries, investments, and loans that perhaps those countries are not going to be able to repay,” Haspel said. “We want those countries to be aware of their own sovereignty and how foreign investment in their infrastructure and their national security infrastructure can ultimately compromise their sovereignty.”

CIA priorities

Haspel laid out several other priorities, as well:

Diversity: Haspel said that when she was at the CIA in the late 1980s, it “was a thoroughly male-dominated organization.”

“It should come as no surprise that one of my top priorities since becoming director has been to champion diversity and inclusion,” she said. “Our global mission at CIA demands we recruit and retain America’s best and brightest, regardless of gender, race or cultural background.”

Drugs: “CIA is going to invest more heavily in our counternarcotics efforts abroad,” Haspel said, calling the opioid epidemic a threat “that has killed far more Americans than any terrorist group ever has.”

Iran: Haspel called the amount of money Tehran continues to spend on propping up the government on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, to expand its influence in Baghdad and to back the Houthis in Yemen, “surprising” given the country’s economic struggles.

“We are we are watching very closely, Iran’s malign activity in the region. And we’d like to push back against that activity, so those countries can carve their own course,” she added.

Transparency: “Nothing is more important to those of us at CIA than our obligation to earn the trust of our fellow citizens,” Haspel said. “There’s not another major intelligence agency in the world subject to oversight authority as comprehensive as our own but that’s as it should be.”

Prior to her confirmation as CIA director, Haspel had been heavily criticized for her role in supervising a secret interrogation center in Thailand and destroying tapes of interrogation sessions.

Morale: “CIA is a very resilient workforce and we tend to be extremely mission-focused,” Haspel said. “We tend not to pay attention to the political fray in the capital.”

European Parliament Seeks to Boost Battle Forces

Sputnik News

15:03 24.09.2018(updated 15:04 24.09.2018)

The European Parliament has submitted a proposal to the Committee on Foreign Affairs, suggesting that the number of EU military groups be quadrupled: from 18 battle groups to 18 brigades.

In its annual report on the implementation of the Common Security and Defense Policy, the European Parliament has invited the Council to investigate the “feasibility of potentially setting up a permanent Spearhead Europe Force, which could be drawing on the European multinational high readiness corps HQ in Strasbourg, Szczecin and Münster.”

According to the European Parliament, such a possibility would largely contribute to the “continuous transformation of national armed forces, toward the goal of being more interoperable, more sustainable, more flexible and more deployable.

The report sent to the Committee on Foreign Affairs further suggested that the EU battle groups should evolve into “full-scale brigades” and be assigned to the corps HQ on a permanent basis.

The proposal outlined by the European Parliament will take effect if it is approved by the Committee on Foreign Affairs and the EP session, although, even if approved, it will remain a non-binding recommendation for the European Commission and the Council.

Currently, the EU has 18 battlegroups, each consist of 1,500 troops, held at readiness level of 5-10 days that can be deployed and sustained 6,000 km or more from EU territory for mainly humanitarian operations or peacekeeping missions lasting between 30 and 120 days, whereas a brigade in the European army has 3-5 battalion-sized units, capable of the autonomous implementation of a wide range of general-purpose tasks.

The battlegroups, which reached full operational capacity in January 2007, rotate actively so that two are ready to be dispatched at any time. Nevertheless, they have yet to see any military action.

US secretly expanding military role in Tunisia: Report

Iran Press TV

Mon Sep 24, 2018 10:53AM

A recent report suggests the United States is quietly expanding its role in Tunisia’s operations against militants near the western borders amid controversy inside the North African state over Washington’s military presence there.

The National Interest magazine earlier this month referred to a report by Task & Purpose – a news site run by military veterans – which said US Marine Corps Raiders were involved in a fierce battle in 2017 in an unnamed North African country, “where they fought beside partner forces” against what it called al-Qaeda militants.

Based on research and analysis carried out by the National Interest, the unnamed country could be Tunisia.

The Task & Purpose report cited a source with the United States Africa Command (AFRICOM) as saying that two US Marines had received citations for valor for that 2017 operation, without providing details about the location due to “classification considerations, force protection, and diplomatic sensitivities.”

The National Interest said the events in the award citations match those that had taken place in Tunisia back then.

“Research and analysis strongly suggest US involvement runs much deeper” than what is conveyed to the US public, the Interest wrote.

The US has maintained a military presence in Tunisia since 2014, when several dozen Special Operations Forces troops were deployed to the North African country’s restive western borderlands.

AFRICOM’s air force, according to the National Interest, has also carried out intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions across Tunisia.

This is while the Tunisian society is rife with anti-US sentiment, with many criticizing the US military presence under the pretext of fighting terrorism.

The issue of American military presence has prompted heated debates at the Tunisian parliament. Opponents say it is a matter of national sovereignty.

Military build-up in Africa

The US military has in recent years used the presence of Takfiri terrorists to build up its presence across the continent, where it has over 6,000 boots on the ground.

The report by the National Interest echoed a secret US secret mission in Niger in 2017, when four US Special Operations Forces soldiers were killed in an ambush by suspected Daesh militants.

The deaths received wide media coverage, prompting the Pentagon to launch a probe into the incident.

The partial results of the probe released in May found mistakes on all military levels in the secret mission that resulted in the deaths.

The US also carries out controversial drone attacks in several countries, including Niger and Somalia, claiming to be targeting al-Qaeda, Daesh and Boko Haram elements.

However, local sources say civilians have been the main victims of the attacks.

Britain to create massive cyber warfare unit with 2,000 personnel

Fri Sep 21, 2018 11:38AM

The British government is to massively expand its cyber warfare infrastructure with the creation of a 2,000-strong unit that could absorb some 250 million pounds of annual funding and even more.

The Sky News reported on Thursday that the initiative would represent a near four-fold increase in manpower focused on United Kingdom’s offensive cyber operations.

It said that officials from the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) will be staffed to the plan by the British Ministry of Defense which is aimed at countering the increasing cyber threats from countries like Russia.

“By adopting offensive cyber techniques in the UK we are leveling the playing field and providing new means of both deterring and punishing states that wish to do us harm,” said General Sir Richard Barrons, a former commander of Joint Forces Command.

Some sources said that the annual budget earmarked for the new project will even exceed 250 million pounds.

Britain has claimed that it has faced numerous cyber attacks from Russia over the past few years. Moscow denies the allegations. The two countries have also been at odds over the alleged poisoning of a former Russian double spy. British authorities have accused Russian government of direct involvement in the incident in March in the southern English city of Salisbury. Russia has rejected the claims, saying it is a scenario staged by British intelligence agencies to further undermine the bilateral relations.

British authorities admitted recently that they had used cyber weapons for the first time to fight Daesh, a terrorist group that has now been almost obliterated from its bastions in Iraq and Syria.

First in Class Ship, Future USNS John Lewis (T-AO 205) Starts Construction

Navy News Service

Story Number: NNS180921-10
Release Date: 9/21/2018 2:46:00 PM

From Team Ships Public Affairs

SAN DIEGO (NNS) — A ceremony was hosted at General Dynamics-National Steel and Shipbuilding Company (GD-NASSCO) shipyard to celebrate the start of construction of the Navy’s first John Lewis-class fleet replenishment oiler, the future USNS John Lewis (T-AO 205), Sept. 20.

Before proceeding with the start of construction, the Navy conducted a Production Readiness Review (PRR) in order to verify the effectiveness and efficiency of the design and production planning within the program. Among other indicators, the program reported detail design and 3D modeling of the entire ships to be 95 percent complete. The results of the PRR were certified by the secretary of the Navy and submitted to Congress on Sept. 6, 2018.

“Today marks a great accomplishment by the Navy and NASSCO team on this important program,” said James F. Geurts, Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, development and Acquisition. “Their tremendous collaboration on this new double-hulled design is a great example setting a positive trajectory leading into production.”

In developing the T-AO 205 design, the Navy worked closely with industry partners to conduct trade off studies that matured the government-developed ship specifications. The results of the trade-off studies were then combined into integrated ship designs. GD-NASSCO was later competitively awarded a Fixed Price Incentive block buy contract for the detail design and construction of six T-AO 205 class fleet replenishment oilers.

The John Lewis-class ships are based on commercial design standards and will recapitalize the current T-AO 187 class fleet replenishment oilers to provide underway replenishment of fuel to Navy ships at sea. These ships are part of the Navy’s Combat Logistics Force and will become the backbone of the fuel delivery system.

John Lewis will be operated by the Navy’s Military Sealift Command and is the first ship named after the civil rights leader and Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient.

“As the first ship of its class, the future USNS John Lewis will play a vital role in the mission of the Navy and Marine Corps, just like its namesake John Lewis’ vital role as a national leader in the movement for civil rights and human dignity,” said Mike Kosar, Support Ships, Boats and Craft program manager, Program Executive Office Ships (PEO Ships).

As one of the Defense Department’s largest acquisition organizations, PEO Ships is responsible for executing the development and procurement of all destroyers, amphibious ships, sealift ships, support ships, boats and craft.

Israeli UN envoy: ‘Trump proves US is on the right side of history’

By: Adina Katz, World Israel News

In his address to the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly Tuesday, President Donald Trump repeated his determination to forge a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, reiterating that moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem advances that goal.

“I moved the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. The United States is committed to a future of peace and stability in the region, including peace between the Israelis and Palestinians,” Trump stated.

“That aim is advanced, not harmed, by acknowledging the obvious facts,” he said.

Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon immediately praised Trump’s remarks.

“The president proves again that the US is on the right side of history. While standing on the side of Israel in the struggle for stability in the Middle East, the United States leads the United Nations into a new era that ends its obsession with Israel and pushes back against the Iranian regime,” Danon remarked.

Regarding Iran, Trump said the 2015 nuclear deal was a “windfall” for the Islamic Republic, whose leaders “sow chaos, death and destruction.”

“We cannot allow the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism to possess the planet’s most dangerous weapons,” he declared. “We ask all nations to isolate Iran’s regime as long as its aggression continues.”

The president also cited what he saw as America’s accomplishments at home — including, for example, low levels of unemployment and large tax cuts and reforms — and abroad, such as “historic change” in the Middle East, success in the fight against Radical Islam and signs of improvement in North Korea.

“We are standing up for America and for the American people, and we are also standing up for the world,” the president asserted.

US warns Russia: Selling Syria defense system a ‘major mistake’

By: The Algemeiner

According to the Hebrew website Walla, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke with Russian President Vladimir Putin, who informed the prime minister of the sale to Syria of the advanced S-300 air defense system. Putin said he rejected Israel’s claim that Syrian air defenses accidentally shot down the Russian plane.

The New York Times reports that the Trump administration called the sale a “major mistake,” with National Security Adviser John Bolton describing it as a “significant escalation.”

Israel’s Channel Two quotes Kremlin spokesman Dimitri Peskov saying that ongoing Israeli airstrikes are harming relations between Israel and Russia, and that Russia’s response to the downing of the plane was intended to “increase the security” of Russian soldiers in Syria.

“In this case, Russia is acting only in accordance with its interests,” Peskov said. “These actions are not intended against third-party states but for the defense of our army.”

He also once again explicitly claimed that Israel was responsible for shooting down the Russian plane, stating, “According to our military experts, the reason for the downing was intentional actions by Israeli pilots. These are actions that could cause harm to [our] relations.”

Israeli analyst Amir Bohbot wrote on Sunday that Russia is exploiting the incident in order to “impose new rules of the game” in Syria to shore up Putin’s prestige, which has been damaged by ongoing Israeli airstrikes against Iranian targets in the war-torn country.

Netanyahu, wrote Bohbot, “will be required to fight not for Israel’s honor but for the freedom of action of the Israeli Air Force and the ability to stand up for its security interests. … Any result other than maintaining the IDF’s freedom of action will be considered a failure.”

Haley: Iran proxies in Iraq working on missile production

By: World Israel News Staff

In her remarks at a UN Security Council briefing on the situation in the Middle East, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley warned that “Iranian proxies in Iraq operate openly, with funding, training, and weapons supplied by Tehran. The Iranian regime has reportedly begun over the last few months to transfer ballistic missiles to these proxies in Iraq. It is reportedly developing the capability for its proxy militias to produce their own missiles inside of Iraq.”

Iran, not Israel, ‘merits debate in Security Council’

“I have always been open about my belief that this Middle East debate has been excessively and unfairly focused on Israel. Today, I will go one step further. The Palestinian-Israeli conflict is serious and worthy of this Council’s attention. But if there is one country that is the source of conflict and instability in the Middle East – one country that merits a quarterly debate in the Security Council – that country is not Israel. It’s Iran,” she stated.

“In a blatant violation of Iraqi sovereignty, the Iranian regime recently fired a barrage of missiles from Iran into Iraq,” the ambassador charged. “Iran attacked the headquarters of the Kurdistan Democratic Party of Iran, killing 11 people. This was not an act of Iranian proxies but of the Tehran regime itself. It was Iran’s first direct military strike into Iraqi territory in over a decade. This Iranian interference in the sovereignty of Iraq should be of great interest to the Security Council for many reasons, not least of which is because it occurs in clear defiance of Security Council resolutions.

“Iranian General and head of the IRGC Quds Force Soleimani is leading an effort to influence the composition of a new Iraqi government. I remind my colleagues that Soleimani was banned from traveling outside of Iran by the Security Council in 2007. That ban was reaffirmed in 2015 with the passage of Security Council Resolution 2231. Despite this unambiguous travel ban, Soleimani has practically taken up residence in Iraq since the May elections. This fact was noted by the Secretary-General in the most recent 2231 Implementation Report. And let’s be clear about what Soleimani is up to in Iraq. He is not there to help create a government in Baghdad that is responsive to the Iraqi people. He is there to build an Iraqi government that is under the control of the Iranian regime.

“Iran treats Iraq like it’s not an independent nation. Iran sees Iraq as a transit point for weapons and a training ground for its proxies. Iran seeks to keep Iraq economically weak. Why? Because Iran wants to use a weak Iraq to illicitly fund its terrorist activities.”

White House puts Tehran ‘firmly on notice’

“There is one more recent Iranian escalation that bears special consequence to Americans,” Haley continued. “Two weeks ago, two Iranian proxy groups launched rocket attacks on the American Embassy in Baghdad and the US. Consulate in Basra. Using proxy forces in Iraq does not give the Iranian regime plausible deniability when attacks like this occur. The Trump Administration does not, and will not, buy that. Iran could have stopped its proxies’ attacks. It chose not to, so the White House responded by putting Tehran firmly on notice. We hold the Iranian regime fully accountable for its proxies’ attacks on U.S. facilities and personnel in Iraq. And we will not hesitate to vigorously defend American lives.”

Haley said the US is “committed to working with Iraq to help it create an inclusive and independent government,” noting that Iran’s activities are pulling the Iraqi people backward.

“This is the very same conflict and division that Iran promotes in Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, and across the Middle East,” she said.

“All members of the Security Council who respect the principle of national sovereignty should be concerned. And all who respect the right to self-determination for the Iraqi people should come to their defense,” Haley concluded.

TRUMP TO U.N.: U.S. ‘NOT HELD HOSTAGE TO OLD DOGMAS’ ON MIDEAST PEACE

Trump to U.N.: U.S. 'not held hostage to old dogmas' on Mideast peace

NEW YORK — The US will pursue a peace agreement between Israelis and Palestinians that breaks with traditions from past diplomatic efforts, President Donald Trump told the UN General Assembly on Tuesday.

Addressing the body for the second time, Trump defended his decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital as a move in advancement of peace. The policy announcement in December prompted a rare rebuke of the US from General Assembly members.

“The United States is committed to a future of peace and stability in the region, including peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians,” Trump said. “Middle East peace, Trump argued, is “is advanced, not harmed, by acknowledging the obvious facts.”

“America’s policy of principled realism means we will not be held hostage to old dogmas, discredited ideologies,” he told the gathering, supported by ” so-called experts who have been proven wrong over the years, time and time again.”

Trump spoke only briefly on his peace effort, repeating his commitment to ending the storied conflict. He referred to Israel as “a thriving democracy in the holy land.” The president’s top Mideast diplomats are in New York this week participating in high-level meetings between the president and regional leaders.

In his remarks, Trump also mentioned the emergence of a “regional strategic alliance” around common strategic interests, noting how many countries in the Middle East supported his decision to withdraw from a nuclear deal with Iran brokered by the UN Security Council.

“The Iran deal was a windfall for Iran’s leaders,” Trump said. “Iran’s leaders sow chaos, death and destruction. They do not respect their neighbors or borders, or the sovereign rights of nations.”

America’s withdrawal from the deal means that US sanctions on Iran – and secondary sanctions on entities conducting business there – are snapping back into place. The harshest set of sanctions lifted by the 2015 deal will return on November 5th, but Trump also warned that additional sanctions would be forthcoming on top of those.

Iran’s president, Hassan Rouhani, rejected overtures from the president to meet while in New York for the second year in a row. Trump wrote of the rejection on Twitter: “Despite requests, I have no plans to meet Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. Maybe someday in the future. I am sure he is an absolutely lovely man!”

The president is expected to focus on Iran’s policies in the region when he chairs a UN Security Council session on Wednesday.

He offered only praise for Arab leaders, including Saudi Arabia, which he said was entering a promising period of reform with the leadership of its crown prince, Mohammad bin Salman. He praised Gulf nations for “taking more responsibility for fighting terrorism and extremism in their own region.”

“The Gulf countries opened a new center to target terrorist financing. They are enforcing new sanctions, working with us,” he said.

And he explained his decision to withdraw the US from several UN bodies that have historically been hostile to Israel, not citing their biases against the Jewish state but his broader policy on protecting US sovereignty and reevaluating US foreign aid. He said the US would not return to the Human Rights Council “until real reform is enacted,” and chastised the International Criminal Court as an “unelected, unaccountable” body with “no jurisdiction, no legitimacy and no authority.”

Trump is scheduled to meet on Wednesday with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who will address the general assembly himself the following day.

 Ο Ερντογάν σηκώνεται και φεύγει την ώρα που μιλά ο Τραμπ στον ΟΗΕ

© Παρέχεται από: PROTO THEMA S.A.

Η ρήξη στις σχέσεις ΗΠΑ- Τουρκίας δεν έμεινε έξω από τη 73η Γενική Συνέλευση του ΟΗΕ, που διεξάγεται στη Νέα Υόρκη με τη συμμετοχή 84 αρχηγών κρατών και 44 αρχηγών κυβερνήσεων.

Κατά τη διάρκεια της ομιλίας του Αμερικανού προέδρου, Ντόναλντ Τραμπ, ο Τούρκος ομόλογός του, Ρετζέπ Ταγίπ Ερντογάν, σηκώθηκε από τη θέση του και αποχώρησε από την αίθουσα, σε ένδειξη διαμαρτυρίας.

Ο Ντόναλντ Τραμπ καθυστέρησε να προσέλθει στο βήμα και πριν από αυτόν το λόγο πήρε ο πρόεδρος του Εκουαδόρ, Λένιν Μορένο.

Στην αρχή της ομιλίας του, ο Αμερικανός πρόεδρος ανέφερε ότι η κυβέρνησή του πέτυχε πολύ περισσότερα από όλες τις υπόλοιπες κυβερνήσεις των ΗΠΑ μέσα σε δύο χρόνια.

«Κατάφερα σε δύο χρόνια όσα κανένας άλλος πρόεδρος των ΗΠΑ στο παρελθόν», ανέφερε χαρακτηριστικά ο Τραμπ.

Και κάπου εκεί ο Ερντογάν, σηκώνεται και αποχωρεί επιδεικτικά.
