“Allah… Give us strength… Do not leave the field of jihad”– Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey PM

Erdogan, formerly the liberal ideal model for Muslim democracy, now a tyrant who basically made himself leader for life in a billion dollar palace, started his career with a controversial poem.
“The minarets are our bayonets, the domes our helmets, the mosques our barracks and the faithful our army,” was the poem he read. It helped earn him a stay in prison. But like Hitler, he didn’t stay there. Instead with the support of the EU, he took over Turkey.
These days Turkey is a not-so covert state sponsor of ISIS and is back in the genocide game. Law enforcement in Turkey which tried to investigate his ties to terrorists in Syria were themselves locked up.
Now Erdogan commemorated WW1 with another poem with lines like “Do not leave this country, which was kneaded by Muslims,
with no Muslims, Allah… Give us strength… Do not leave the field of jihad”.
Turkey is pulling away from NATO and sending none too subtle signals that it expects another war with the West.
Turkey’s Islamist-rooted government argues it needs a more independent military force to avoid the fate of the Ottomans, whose empire collapsed after banking on alliances with Germany and Austria-Hungary, only to be invaded by the U.K. and France—a bitter historical chapter that still fuels mistrust toward the West.
“We lost World War I, because the Ottoman state did not have its own combat technique,” Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said at a March ceremony at the 100th anniversary of Turks’ victory over the Allies in the Dardanelles. “A nation that doesn’t have its own defense industry cannot have a claim to independence.”
Meanwhile Erdogan is invading other countries with his barracks of mosques. Cuba turned him down, but Obama is on his knees .
A couple of years ago it was reported that Turkey was helping fund the building of a $100 million dollar mega mosque in Lanham, Maryland. In fact Erdogan visited the mosque when he was here in May of 2013, promising to come back for the opening.
Well that time has apparently arrived and now Erdogan and Obama will be together at the mosque for the big opening ceremony:
“During a phone call, President (Recep Tayyip) Erdogan asked President (Barack) Obama to accompany him in opening the center together and President Obama accepted his offer’in principle,’” Cavusoglu told the representatives.
While Obama couldn’t find time for Netanyahu, he can always find time for a terrorist .
The government of Turkey is building a 15-acre, $100 million mega-mosque in Lanham, Maryland. Turkey’s Prime Minister Erdogan visited the site on May 15 as part of his official visit to the U.S.. The state of Maryland was officially represented at the event by its Secretary of State John McDonough.
The event was also attended by the leaders of two U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entities.
On this trip to the U.S., Erdogan brought the father of one of the Islamists killed while on a Turkish flotilla which was trying to break Israel’s weapons blockade on Gaza. Gaza is controlled by Hamas, which is a designated terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department. Erdogan reportedly wanted to him to meet President Obama. (In the end, the father met with Secretary of State John Kerry.)
The leaders of two U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entities in attendance included Naeem Baig, is the president of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA). A 1991 U.S. Muslim Brotherhood memo lists ICNA as one of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends.” The memo says its “work in America is “a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within.”
Destroying Western civilization from within… now that’s right up Obama’s alley.
