Tyrkiet på vej…mod islamificering

Diverse — Drokles on June 6, 2010 at 6:59 am

Det er næppe undgået ret manges opmærksomhed at forholdet mellem de tidligere allierede Israel og Tyrkiet er blevet forværret til nærmest et fjendtligt et af slagsen. I denne tid, hvor man stadig prøver at slå tvivl om Israels videobeviser har man mistet fokus på en helt central ændring i Mellemøstens magtbalance, hvor Tyrkiet rejser sig, som en stormagt - og ikke en venlig en af slagsen, som Soner Cagaptay skriver i Jerusalem Post

Turkey has lost what makes it special: its ability to be Muslim and Western at the same time, a uniquely Turkish characteristic. They had it coming ever since the AKP took power in 2002.

Turkish-Israeli ties have been on a downhill trajectory, which began with the AKP’s sharp criticism of Israeli policies following Operation Cast Lead. While some dismissed this rhetoric as domestic politicking, it was the ideological periscope of the AKP’s subsurface foreign policy. The AKP did not have any intention of aligning with Israel. Rather, it went along with Israel until the opportunity presented itself to call off the relationship.

Its rhetoric served as the litmus test of what lay ahead.

The Israelis, having few real friends in the region and therefore not knowing what to do with harsh rhetoric coming from this rare ally, first denied the problem and then overreacted.

In the incident known as the “low chair affair,” Israeli Foreign Ministry officials decided to humiliate the Turkish ambassador by seating him on a low chair in a televised meeting. In the ensuing scandal, the entire Turkish nation felt insulted, rallying behind the AKP’s negative criticisms and stance toward Israel.

THIS IS also what happened on May 31. Turkey is a proud nation; perhaps this is its hallmark. It would have been enough for it to turn against Israel had the Israelis bloodied the nose of one Turk. Hence, after news of bloodshed surfaced, tens of thousands of protesters gathered across Turkish cities, chanting “Down with the Zionist state,” and “We are all Hamas.”

Surprisingly, T-shirts and headbands with these slogans were readily available, perhaps signaling that for some, the crisis was anticipated. The AKP government then recalled its ambassador and canceled three bilateral military exercises. AKP officials have called Israel a “pirate state,” and a “terrorist state,” and right-wing pundits have followed, illuminating a Nasserite trend – Israel is fast becoming the country-whose-name-shall-not-be-uttered in Turkish politics. The AKP also added that Turkish-Israeli relations would not be revived unless Israel recognizes Hamas and lifts the blockade on Gaza. This provides another avenue for the AKP to say that Turkish-Israeli ties are dead

For Israel, this means that Turkey has switched camps. From now on, barring a change of government in Ankara or a change in Israel’s policy toward Hamas, Turkey is on the other side of the Middle East debate regarding Israel. What is more, Turkey cannot be expected to act as a mediator between Israel and its neighbors, a role some had suggested Ankara could play under the AKP.

At den tyrkiske fredsflåde var et skaktræk til skade for Israel og ikke et udtryk for et ønske om en hvis fairnes i regionen gør Aaron Schock opmærksom på ligeledes i Jerusalem Post. Efter at have draget paralleller mellem Israels forhold til Hamas og Tyrkiets forhold til kurdiske PKK og mindet om at den arabiske verden står sammen bag blokaden, som Ægypten er en aktiv del af, af Gaza giver han følgende billede af Tyrkiets politiske tankegang

Again, regarding Turkish hypocrisy, the prime minister of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, received the international pariah who leads Sudan – President Omar Bashir – a man who has committed genocide. The International Criminal Court has an arrest warrant out for him on charges of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes. Not only has the Darfur region of Sudan experienced genocide directed by Bashir and his government, but other regions of southern Sudan have as well. During the visit in mid-August of last year, Erdogan said he did not believe Bashir was guilty of the war crimes for which he was indicted.

And here is how the Turkish prime minister justified that widely disputed contention: “It is not possible for those who belong to the Muslim faith to carry out genocide,” said Erdogan. He deems Bashir innocent. End of story.

THE TURKISH foreign minister recently called the flotilla episode, “Turkey’s 9-11.” Shame on you sir. No American should ever forget such an insult.

Som Gagaptay bemærker har Tyrkiet under Erdogan blot ventet på en anledning, hvor latterlig den end er, til at skade Israel. For det er umuligt for de der tilhører den muslimske tro at gøre andet.

  1. Tyrkiet har for mig at se, altid været en katastrofe der kun ventede på at ske.

    Ataturk og hans kumpaner havde deres 15 minutter og ikke meget mere.

    Befolkningen var jo altid helt almindeligt muslimsk, hvilket jo er så tydeligt at se i dem vi har hentet her til landet.

    Det “nye” Tyrkiet er således intet andet end det gamle.

    Morgendagens prognose: Jihad, jihad, jihad…

  2. Jeg er tilbøjelig til at give dig ret, selvom jeg havde visse forhåbninger på tyrkernes vegne. Man kan bare håbe på at militæret får et come-back.

  3. A laptop can be picked up with one hand by a thief in less than a second.
    It’s rather impractical because video cards designed for use in desktops are different than those designed for use in mobile devices, and it’s
    rare for laptop-exclusive video cards to be sold. Mobility scooters are now available in many different styles from many
    different manufacturers making it more difficult to decide which one is
    best suited for your needs.
