Turkey allowing terrorists to cross into Syria, Damascus says
http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2012/09/17/262008/turkey-allowing-terrorists-into-syria/



The Syrian foreign ministry says Turkey has opened its borders and airports for Syria-bound terrorists, calling it a flagrant violation of the international law.
 

The ministry made the remarks on Sunday in two letters addressed to the UN Security Council and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, Syrian news agency Sana reported.
 
The ministry said Syria’s northern neighbor allowed "thousands of al-Qaeda, Takfiri, and Wahhabi terrorists" to cross the border in order to "kill innocent Syrians, blow up their properties, and spread chaos and destruction."
 
Turkey is home to the headquarters of the self-proclaimed Free Syrian Army and hosts many meetings of foreign-backed insurgent groups fighting against Damascus.
 
"The Turkish government was not only satisfied at hosting the organizations hostile to Syria, which came from Arab and different countries or supplying them with weapons and money, but it also opened camps to train the terrorists, receive and host them," the ministry noted.
 

It also accused Ankara of receiving hundreds of tons of weapons from different states and supplying them to insurgents in Syria.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011. Damascus says outlaws, saboteurs, and armed terrorists are the driving factor behind the unrest and deadly violence while the opposition accuses the security forces of being behind the killings.
 
The Syrian government says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the armed militants are foreign nationals.
 
Damascus also says the insurgents are supported by Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar.
 
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on August 1 that the country is engaged in a “crucial and heroic” battle that will determine the destiny of the nation.

Turkish intelligence chief: ISIS must set up consulate in Istanbul
« Reply #1 on: October 19, 2015, 01:14:12 pm »
Turkish government officials have been pitching fits for years over westerners, like Biden and others, telling the truth about Turkey and Saudi and the rest - that they were arming, funding and aiding al Qaeda-ISIS and Co..  So now, So-and-so Fidan, just tells it like it is.  Turkey wants an Islamic State, and I'm sure this has nothing to do with the rumors that President Erdogan is himself part of the  Brotherhood.  It looks less and less like the Kurds had anything to do with that bombing.


Turkish intelligence chief: Putin's intervention in Syria is against Islam and international law, ISIS is a reality and we are optimistic about the future
18 October 2015 - AWD News

Ankara--- Hakan Fidan, the head of Turkey's National Intelligence Organization, known by the MİT acronym, has drawn a lot of attention and criticism for his controversial comments about ISIS.

Mr. Hakan Fidan, Turkish President's staunchest ally, condemned Russian military intervention in Syria, accusing Moscow of trying to 'smother' Syria's Islamist revolution and serious breach of United Nations law.

“ISIS is a reality and we have to accept that we cannot eradicate a well-organized and popular establishment such as the Islamic State; therefore I urge my western colleagues to revise their mindset about Islamic political currents, put aside their cynical mentalité and thwart Vladimir Putin's plans to crush Syrian Islamist revolutionaries,” Anadolu News Agency quoted Mr. Fidan as saying on Sunday.

Fidan further added that in order to deal with the vast number of foreign Jihadists craving to travel to Syria, it is imperative that ISIS must set up a consulate or at least a political office in Istanbul. He underlined that it is Turkey’s firm belief to provide medical care for all injured people fleeing Russian ruthless airstrikes regardless of their political or religious affiliation.

Recently as the fierce clashes between Russian army and ISIS terrorists raging across the war-torn Syria, countless number of ISIS injured fighters enter the Turkish territory and are being admitted in the military hospitals namely those in Hatay Province. Over the last few days, the Syrian army with the support of Russian air cover could fend off ISIS forces in strategic provinces of Homs and Hama.

Emile Hokayem, a Washington-based Middle East analyst said that Turkey's Erdoğan and his oil-rich Arab allies have dual agendas in the war on terror and as a matter of fact they are supplying the Islamist militants with weapons and money, thus Russian intervention is considered a devastating setback for their efforts to overthrow Syrian secular President Assad.

Hokayem who was speaking via Skype from Washington, D.C. highlighted the danger of Turkish-backed terrorist groups and added that what is happening in Syria cannot be categorized as a genuine and popular revolution against dictatorship but rather it is a chaos orchestrated by Erdoğan who is dreaming to revive this ancestor's infamous Ottoman Empire.

Turkish protection

After 11 September 2001, Yasin al-Qadi moved many of his operations to Istanbul, Turkey and Switzerland. Forbes reported that Qadi is a friend of Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and that through his friendship with highly placed Turks he was able to escape sanctions while living in Turkey.

Cuneyd Zapsu, a senior adviser to Prime Minister Erdogan, reportedly donated tens of thousands of dollars to Qadi, and Zapsu's mother donated "a cool quarter million dollars.

Erdogan is quoted as having once said "“I know Mr. Qadi. I believe in him as I believe in myself. For Mr. Qadi to associate with a terrorist organization, or support one, is impossible."

Yasin al-Qadi had a traffic accident on 16 February 2013 in Istanbul, Turkey while travelling from Istanbul Atatürk Airport by an official vehicle with Usama Qutub (his relative and business partner) and İbrahim Yıldız (Police Lieutenant at Prime Minister’s Guard Office). After the accident al-Qadi, Qutub and Yıldız were then taken to the Bağcılar Medipol Hospital for medical treatment
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yasin_al-Qadi

Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is the 12th and current President of Turkey, in office since 2014. He previously served as the Prime Minister of Turkey from 2003 to 2014 and as the Mayor of İstanbul from 1994 to 1998.

What a bio.  Still from your link:

The UN placed sanctions against Qadi in 1999 and 2000, when he was named by United Nations Security Council Resolutions 1267 and 1333 as a suspected associate of Osama bin Laden's terror network, al-Qaeda.

One Andrew Cochran, has an interesting blog from 2007, "More on Yasin al-Qadi's Connections to Turkey's Prime Minister".  He sites an one Michael Rubin's AEI article, also from 2007, "Will Turkey Have an Islamist President?"

Quote
Cuneyd Zapsu, Erdoğan’s chief advisor, has donated money to Yasin al-Qadi, a Saudi businessman identified by both the U.S. Treasury Department and the United Nations as an al Qaeda financier. While Zapsu initially denied the charges--and even threatened to sue those repeating them--Council of Financial Crime Investigations files leaked to the press confirmed that Zapsu had donated $60,000 to a foundation run by al-Qadi in 1997. Two years later his mother transferred another $250,000.

After the terrorist attacks of September 11, the government of Erdoğan’s predecessor froze al-Qadi’s assets. But with his business partner serving as advisor to the prime minister, al-Qadi appealed on technical grounds. Erdoğan endorsed the appeal, vouching for al-Qadi and even calling him a philanthropist in a Turkish television interview. The prime minister acknowledged knowing al-Qadi personally, which raises an important question: how Did Zapsu introduce his business partner to the prime minister, and if he really did so, why? Only subsequent court intervention forced Erdoğan to keep al-Qadi’s assets frozen. The questionable company chosen by Zapsu has become the rule rather than the exception: on March 27, 2006, Erdoğan traveled to Khartoum for a two-day Arab League Summit. While there, he skipped an official dinner to meet instead with Fatih al-Hassanein, a Sudanese financier with ties to al Qaeda and arms smuggling. Erdoğan has yet to explain the purpose of this meeting.


Rubin's AEI article covered some other interesting ground as well, namely the pull of the Saudi sphere,


Quote
Islamist investment has grown concurrent with the AKP’s rise. On November 7, 2005, Kürşad Tüzmen, the state minister for foreign trade, announced that Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayid al-Nuhayyan, ruler of the United Arab Emirates, would invest $100 billion in Turkish companies. On October 9, 2006, Muhammad al-Hussaini, the Saudi ambassador to Ankara, said that trade between Saudi Arabia and Turkey would double, and might even triple, over the coming year.

Investment is healthy and should be welcome. The problem, which Turkish commentators refer to as Yeşil Sermaye (“Green Money”), is the opacity of Islamic investment. While Turkish politicians, journalists, and even banking officials acknowledge the influx of capital, it remains largely in the informal economy, subsidizing party coffers, slush funds, and perhaps political allies. The opacity—and the fact that the money appears linked to AKP stewardship—also raises questions about conditionality: is investment in Turkey contingent upon AKP efforts to draw the country away from its Western orientation and more into the Islamic sphere?


The Russians more than likely knew what they interrupting:  Turkey and Saudi working in tandem with a host of western backers as the political and religious hubs of a new Islamo-Arab world built from the ashes of their jihadi fire storm.

What should be the future of the Middle East, ten years from now?  I'll tell you, ahh, it should be based; the whole concept of stability, security, statehood, should be based on similar parameters.  First of all, we have to accept, ahh, that it is very important to create a coalition; a Sunni coalition, that will be led by Turkey.
...former Shin Bet (Israeli Security Service) Director and commander-in-chief of the Navy [speaking to Charlie Rose] revealed Israel’s intention to create a Sunni vs Shia coalition to form against Iran and other Shia Muslim factions in the region.

Turkey has a long history of controversial events, what is now being called Gladio 2.0

Sibel Edmonds used to talk about the American-Turkish council after what she heard translating Turkish intercepts for the FBI.

And a guy called Luai Sakra claimed he trained 911 hijackers in Turkey

Interesting what you say about the Shin Bet.

Some in Turkey apparently do and many of them are against the same folks that worcesteradam was pointing out - allied with the CIA and working effectively as a parallel government - interestingly the same ones that the Turkish government has just indicted in absentia.


US-based cleric 'to be tried by Turkey for terrorist conspiracy' - 10 hours ago

An influential Turkish cleric will go on trial in absentia in January on terrorism charges for allegedly conspiring to bring down President Recep Tayyip Erdogan through a vast government corruption probe, local media reported Monday.

Fethullah Gulen, a former ally of Erdogan turned arch-enemy who lives in exile in the United States, is charged with "running a terrorist group" which launched a probe into the president's inner circle in 2013.

The first hearing was set for January 6, with Gulen expected to be tried in absentia, news agency Dogan reported.

The Istanbul court also issued a fresh arrest warrant for Gulen after judges approved the 1,453 page-long indictment against him and 69 other suspects.

Erdogan accuses Gulen of trying to topple him by persuading allies in Turkey's police force and judiciary to launch a vast probe into government corruption in December 2013, which led to the resignation of four ministers.

Turkey's authorities responded by purging both the police force and judiciary of pro-Gulen elements and arresting news editors and businessmen.

Do You Want to See Turkey Falling Apart as Well?
October 13, 2015 - Omar Kassem - Counter Punch - excerpt

Gülen became wedded to these doctrines [the ‘Turkish-Islamic synthesis] and was an avid supporter of Devren’s coup, just as he later supported the 1997 coup against his pal Necmettin Erbakan. Coups were good, because they gave Gülen the opportunity of fawning to a new power, each time to be showered with favours that expanded his empire. He was close personal friends with of all people, Tansu Çiller, who defended the hired killer Abdullah Çatlı, after he had been found dead in Susurluk in his crashed Mercedes, alongside a ‘beauty queen’, a police chief and a Kurdish politician, with dope, cash and guns in the trunk of the car.

The whole episode actually drew attention to a secret organisation called JİTEM, which it is understood had allegedly been responsible for around 5,000 ‘unknown assailant’ murders and 1,500 enforced disappearances between 1989 and 2008 in the Southeast, including the Kurdish politician Vedat Aydın (Söyler 2015: 147). It subsequently formally became the counter-terror arm of the Gendarmerie, which is what the separate heavily armed police are called in the Turkish Southeast.

It was a unit of this same Gendarmerie, who in May this year, armed with a warrant by Adana prosecutor Ozcan Sisman, uncovered MİT arms shipments to Syrian rebels, and immediately broadcast the catch in the Gülen news. I’ll come back to whole Syrian imbroglio shortly – but surely this was one in the eye for that anti-Israeli snake Fidan. Sisman and the gendarmes became yet another arrest the government had to make to defend the integrity of its command structure against the loose collection of gangs that ostensibly draw salaries from the state, but are inspired by the quite separate mission of the FGC.

Whatever you think of the Turkish government’s Syria policy, surely these revelations must be one of the most extraordinary cases of the pot calling the kettle black, considering Seymour Hersh’s revelation that the gendarmerie was known by the CIA to be “working directly with al-Nusra and its allies to develop a chemical warfare capability” (Hersh: 17Apr14). Think Ghouta. Was it Assad, was it Erdogan? Or…

Or had the arms trade now simply replaced drugs as the chief source of profits for uncontrollable gangs within the deep state? Mehtap Söyler concludes in her thick study of the Turkish deep state that “[w]ithout recognizing the deep state’s symbiotic relationship with the Kurdish question, establishing peace and making a new civil and inclusive constitution, democracy in Turkey will always be fragile” (Söyler 2015: 199).

Osama bin Laden stayed in Croatia for days in the 1980s says Croatian daily newspaper Vecernji.hr.

Vecernji.hr cites a document by the Yugoslav Federal Department of Commerce from 1986 that was a classified document marked as a “military secret”. The document’s Notes section describes that Osama bin Laden arrived in Croatia on October 25, 1986 along with Fathi Muhammed Ali, Afghan mujahedeen representative, Osman Kaldirim, an ethnic Turk from the US.

This ethinc Turk is tied to the Saudi foundation that built the mosque in Culver City:

Quote
An Osman Kaldirim is listed as the treasurer of the Islamic Foundation of Shaikh Ibn Taimmiyyah located in Culver City, CA
http://www.corporationwiki.com/California/Culver-City/islamic-foundation-of-shaikh-ibn-taimmiyyah/49863676.aspx

Two of the 9/11 hijackers Nawaf al-Hazmi and Khalid al-Mihdhar attended the King Fahd Mosque before their acts of terrorism. It was a their main Mosque base of operations in the US. Indeed the mosque’s Imam Fahad al Thumairy, an employee of the Saudi Arabian Consulate, was deported in May 2003 for supporting terrorism.

I believe its the same guy. Cant be sure though.

May 24, 1998: New Breed of Roughnecks Battles Over Caspian Oil Fields Commerce: Unocal finds deal-making, not technical expertise, is key to securing overseas contracts. Corporate brawls are part of game. http://articles.latimes.com/1998/may/24/news/mn-53144

HOUSTON — To the former Soviet republic of Turkmenistan, the deal with Unocal Corp. to develop its huge natural-gas reserves was about more than energy. It was about statecraft.
...
Despite its Saudi ownership, Delta's key player in Turkmenistan has been a controversial Turkish businessman, Osman Kaldirim. Delta officials acknowledge that he has been responsible for cultivating Delta's--and Unocal's--most important personal and political connections in the region.

Despite Delta Oil's name, even Unocal officials acknowledge that the company had no experience in the oil and gas business when it joined Unocal.

Delta was recruited because of Saudi Arabia's shared cultural background with the Muslims in Central Asia. Delta was promised an equity position in whatever deals Unocal won in the Caspian. "Delta has no oil and gas background at all," said one source familiar with Unocal. "It is not an oil company. And many people in Unocal have never entirely understood why Unocal joined forces with Delta," the source said. "It was never explained except to say that we are in a Muslim area, and we need a high-level Saudi company that understands the culture, understands how to make things happen. But for me, that answer was not very convincing. The region is Muslim in name only; the Saudis can't understand the former Soviet Union."

Sources close to Unocal say Kaldirim displayed an uncanny ability to arrange meetings for Unocal executives with hard-to-reach government officials in the region. Once, he set up Unocal executives with the deputy chief of intelligence in Uzbekistan, a former Soviet republic bordering Turkmenistan. Unocal later opened an office in the country, according to a source familiar with Unocal's operations.

A Delta vice president, Nabil al Khowaiter, angrily denied the allegations of influence-buying circulating against Delta and Kaldirim. "A lot of people are mystified by the success of Delta, how this small company has been so successful in working with the big boys, and so some on the outside make up stories," Khowaiter said. "If these allegations weren't so dangerous to our reputation, I would say they are funny.

Unocal's other partner in the Turkmenistan deal, the Moscow-based Itera, became a key player in Turkmenistan by maintaining an intimate relationship with Gazprom, the giant Russian natural-gas monopoly. Itera has acted in Gazprom's slipstream, marketing and brokering natural-gas deals in several former Soviet republics.

ISIS CHILDREN CAMPS DISCOVERED IN TURKEY
by MARY CHASTAIN1  9 Oct 2015

Turkish authorities have discovered Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) training camps for children in basements hidden in Istanbul.

Hürriyet Daily News reported that “24 of around 50 suspects of Tajik and Uzbek origin” are children that trained in those basement camps. The officers raided 18 homes in the “Pendik and Başakşehir’s Kayaşehir neighborhood.” The houses contained “battlefield maps as well as documents describing the group’s contacts in both countries.” Other evidence led authorities to believe the group intended to meet ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

Usmon Ghazi, the leader of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU), pledged allegiance to ISIS in early August, almost a year after he offered support for the radical Islamic group.

Huge numbers of Islamist fighters are massing on Afghanistan's northern border ready to march into neighbouring states, Russian intelligence officials have revealed.

Moscow's spy chief Alexander Bortnikov warned fighters from the Taliban, many of whom have pledged allegiance to ISIS, were heavily armed and prepared to pass through porous border controls.

ISIS Oil Plot Thickens: Turkish MP Has Evidence Erdogan’s Son-In-Law Involved In Illegal Crude Trade

Underscoring that contention is CHP lawmaker Eren Erdem who says he, like Moscow, will soon provide proof of Erdogan’s role in the smuggling of Islamic State oil. “I have been able to establish that there is a very high probability that Berat Albayrak is linked to the supply of oil by the Daesh terrorists,” Erdem said at a press conference on Thursday (see more from Sputnik).
Berat Albayrak is Erodan’s son-in-law and is Turkey’s Minister of Energy and Natural Resources.

Turkish MP faces treason charges after telling RT ISIS used Turkey for transiting sarin
Dec 16 - RT

A treason investigation has been launched against a Turkish MP who alleged in an exclusive interview with RT that Islamic State jihadists delivered deadly sarin gas to Syria through Turkey.

Ankara’s Chief Prosecutor's Office opened the case against Istanbul MP Eren Erdem of Republican People's Party (CHP) after his interview about sarin was aired on RT on Monday.

"Chemical weapon materials were brought to Turkey and put together in ISIS camps in Syria, which was known as the Iraqi Al-Qaeda at that time."
