In an earlier article we described the strategic plans
devised and advanced by the circles where Newsweek’s columnist Fareed
Zakaria and his former professor, the notorious Samuel Huntington,
belong. The implementation of the serpentine borderlines envisioned by
the murderous, perverse pseudo-professor leads to the rise of a Middle
Eastern apocalyptic Muslim leader of paranoid anti-Western hatred and
genocidal anti-Israeli stance, to a Russian dictator in the temptation
to manipulate the Muslim leader, and last but not least to a European
Emperor who will unit and militarize Europe before invading the Middle
East to revenge and exterminate Israel’s terminator.
Turkey: the only obstacle to global collapse
For all this paranoid plan of mass extermination to happen, there is
only one obstacle; it is the country that on Huntington’s map stands
independent between the worlds of Christian Orthodox Eastern Europe and
Islamic Africa, Middle East, and Central Asia: Turkey.
The country founded by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk presents the most
successful model of radical political change of the 2nd millennium. What
country moved faster from a decayed, false, obscurantist and barbaric
form of Islam (or any sort of theocracy) to Western style Democracy with
Voting Rights for Women within just 7 years (1919 – 1926)? What
revolution abolished religion – based, 13-century old legislation to
introduce a modern, democratic, legal system? What government had the
strength to overwhelmingly change the writing system of a language,
despite its deeply rooted religious connotation? Only Turkey.
This did not happen without counter-revolutions, insurgence and blood,
as it contradicted 100% the traditional culture of people who had lived
40, 50 or 60 years without imagining any other political system than the
abolished one! Like every revolution, in the beginning, it expressed the
ideals and concepts, the visions and the wishes of a dynamic group of
minority. The French and the October Soviet revolutions are typical
examples; despite the colossal changes, Turkey and Kemal Ataturk did not
have their Vendée….
However, all this does not mean much to Mr. Fareed Zakaria, an Indian
born American who has little memories of Indian Islam, and no knowledge
of Islam in Persia, Central Asia, the Middle East, the Balkans, Africa,
and of course Turkey.
Yet, as his masters order, he writes as much as he can and as
fallaciously as he can in order to help form a US and global public
opinion sympathetic to those who want to destroy Turkey’s aforementioned
brilliant achievements, and pull the country back to the Middle Ages.
With disastrous ramifications for the entire world.
A Prayer for Democracy or a Democracy for Prayers - only?
Fareed Zakaria’s ignorance and inconsistence is ostensible throughout
his brief article. We find it as a good opportunity to reveal how
dysfunctional has the Western mass media world become, and to what
pathetic propaganda today’s readers are exposed.
The article has a provocatively confusing and irrelevant title, namely
‘A Quiet Prayer for Democracy’; it was published in the Newsweek’s May
14, 2007 issue (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/18507649/site/newsweek/).
Truly speaking, there cannot be any prayer for any type of Democracy;
neither a Jew nor a Christian, a Muslim, a Hindu, and a Buddhist need to
pray or think of praying for Democracy. It never occurred in the History
of the Mankind! Ancient Romans did not pray for the Res Publica,
American and French 18th century revolutionaries did not pray for their
Democracies, and no one has ever prayed for an establishment. A country
that is linked to a God in cases of theocracy can certainly be the
object of a prayer, but never did a democratic establishment became a
concern for prayer. The political establishment itself is religious
Does Fareed Zakaria favour Excision institutionalized in Turkey?
Why does Fareed Zakaria make this confusion? This is easy to grasp; he
prepares his mainly Christian readership for emotional terrorism, namely
for the presentation of his theory that Democracy is threatened in
Turkey in case a religious group and political party will be ejected
from power. The fact that this religious group is made out of Islamic
Terrorists, who want to impose excision and headscarf on women, is what
Fareed Zakaria tries to camouflage.
It is quite interesting to follow the comical forger: instead of
speaking of Turkey, he first writes an entire paragraph about a most
irrelevant topic: events in the ‘Arabic’ world! His text reads as
"Over the past five years, President Bush has made various efforts to
reform the Arab world. They have all stumbled over one enormous
obstacle. In the region, the people who win elections are not democrats.
They seem to believe in elections (at least as long as they win), but
not in the individual rights, laws and traditions that create a genuine
liberal democracy. The administration has pushed for elections in Iraq,
Palestine, Lebanon and Egypt, only to find that religious
fundamentalists have triumphed in most of them. Except in Turkey".
Turkey does not belong to the fictitious ‘Arab’ world
Read and laugh: "efforts to reform the Arab world"! A former Clinton’s
adviser would say: ‘Turkey does not belong to the ‘Arab world, stupid’!
President Bush did not make any effort to reform the political system of
Turkey as Turkey had been accepted as fully accredited democratic state
in NATO before this Fareed Zakaria was born!
Franco’s Spain was not accepted in the NATO because it was not a
democratic country! As of Indian origin, Fareed Zakaria probably does
not know Spain because India was not colonized by Spain! This must be
the logic behind Fareed Zakaria’s trauma: we remember only those who
It is because Turkey is already accepted as fully accredited democratic
establishment that negotiations have started for Turkey’s adhesion in
the EU. There will never be negotiations with Tunisia and Morocco,
There is no ‘Arab world’; it’s a fabrication
Even worse, for the ignorant Mr. Fareed, there is no Arab world, and
this is the reason President Bush’s efforts have failed! There can never
be a democratic system in a disfigured country where the outright
majority have fallen victims of the diffusion of a colonial ideological
fabrication, such as the Pan-Arabism, a grave falsification of the
History of numerous peoples and nations living the area between Iran and
the Atlantic Ocean. Only according to this falsehood, there is an ‘Arab
world’, but this has been ferociously rejected by the revolting masses
of many peoples, who despite the criminal colonial work of the falsified
History diffusion, deploy great effort to discover their real identity,
rejecting the hideous stigma of ‘Arab’.
Basics in History of the Middle East and Africa would let the
unfortunate Mr. Fareed know that all the Arabs of the times of the
Prophet did not exceed in number the population of one Egyptian,
Aramaean, Persian or Roman city (like Alexandria, Edessa of Osrhoene,
Ctesiphon or Caesarea of Cappadocia). With the (non Arab) Yemenites
accepting Islam before the death of the Prophet, and with Nestorian
Aramaeans accepting Islam (viewed as another Christological dispute)
easily as early 636 – 639, one can effortlessly understand that the
armies that diffused Islam in Iran, in Egypt, and in the NW African
Atlas were composite Aramaean – Yemenite – Arab armies. Those among them
who settled in the newly occupied lands consisted in a minority of less
than 1% of the local population (Egyptian, Persian, Berberic, Bactrian,
The expansion of Islam brought about a gradual, advanced islamization
that ended up in linguistic arabization, but this was partly, and
linguistic only, not cultural and not racial. The main populations
remained Berberic in the area of Mauritania, Morocco, Western Sahara,
Algeria, Tunisia and Libya (Berberic – Khammitic). In Egypt, the wide
populations were Egyptian, Khammitic, and there were many Macedonians,
greeks, Aramaeans, Jews, etc mixed up with Egyptians and Nubians
(Nilo-Saharan); on the other hand, in Sudan the indigenous people were
Khammitic – Kushitic and Nilo-Saharan. In Yemen, they were Sabaean,
Himyarite, Hadhramawti Yemenites, again different than the Arabs, and in
the vast area of the Asiatic Middle East that corresponds to the area of
today’s Syria, Iraq, SE Turkey, SW Iran, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine,
Israel, Kuwait, E Arabia, Qatar and Emirates was the Aramaean homeland.
No Democracy as long as you preserve the Pan-Arabist Myth
All these peoples were tyrannically transformed to ‘Arabs’ over the past
200 years to satisfy the needs of the colonial powers that through the
diffusion of this falsehood and various other academic falsifications
and manipulations shaped the main developments; however, here and there
various peoples have persistently good memory of their past, preserve a
high degree of self knowledge and national identity, and want to reject
the Arab stigma at all costs. The tyrannical imposition of the Arab
bogus-identity brought forth terrible dictatorship, and it is expected
that under circumstances like this no democracy can be established. But
all this remains unknown to Mr. Fareed.
After this paragraph comes the big boom; "religious fundamentalists"
have won in recent elections in various tyrannies of the so-called ‘Arab
world’, "except in Turkey". Turkey is not part of this hypothetical
bogus-world, but Fundamentalists have won and got the majority of the
Turkish Parliament, and Fareed seems to forget it. Yet, Fareed goes
ahead; the text reads:
"In Turkey the popular ruling party, the AK—despite some background with
political Islam—has proved to be the most open, modern and liberal
political movement in Turkey's history."
Erdogan means Excision Imposed in Turkey
AK, the ruling party of premier Erdogan, has ‘some background with
political Islam’! This is a euphemism for the governmental party that
promotes separate beaches for men and women, separate schools for boys
and girls, prohibition of the alcohol, elimination of the brothels,
imposition of the headscarf through social terror, imposition of Friday
as the week’s only non working day, imposition of the Arabic as the
first foreign language, imposition of the Arabic writing system for
Turkish (return to the Ottoman system), compulsory excision for women,
etc. If Fareed calls this ‘some background’, you can understand for
yourselves what will come out of the Turkish - Islamist Pandora’s Box….
Fareed’s text turns then out to be an advertorial; Erdogan’s
obscurantist party becomes "the most open, modern and liberal political
movement in Turkey’s history"! A good PR effort to establish a link
between the neo-liberals and the old-extremists! In reality, Fareed
proves to be too young and too ignorant; the attributes fit better
Turgut Ozal’s envisioned politics in the 80s and the 90s; he opened
Turkey to the world, introduced modernity in every sense, and promoted
the liberal economy.
The only threat for Turkey is Erdogan!
Then comes a big lie:
"That extraordinary achievement may now be in peril because of the
overreaction of Turkey's secular (and unelected) establishment."
What extraordinary an achievement!
You play the game of the cannibalistic emirs of the Gulf and they come
to invest in your country; you create a Gulf money bubble at the
Istanbul stock exchange, and to help you destroy yourself even faster,
US and UK statesmen and politicians order these emirs to invest even
more, to lace you with them, while at the same time they discredit you
in the West through French refusal of Turkey’s adhesion to the EU, and
through disreputable and machinated stirring of the 100-year old
Armenian affair. What is there to be noticed in all this as
‘extraordinary’, except misery?
And by whom are these misdemeanors endangered? Fareed has the answer:
‘secular (and unelected) establishment’! That’s ridiculous! ‘Secular’
has nothing to do with elections, it reflects an ideological
inclination. You cannot say ‘liberal (and unelected) establishment’
because the two terms pertain to different categorization. By
associating them to one another, Fareed tries to demonize the principle
of secularism; as effort, this is a failure, and it demonstrates how
little Fareed Zakaria and his circle care about Democracy. Among the
most important elements of Democracy, Secularism helps people of
different religious backgrounds live together peacefully. This certainly
disturbs the secretive friends of Mr. Zakaria, whose agenda mainly
contains divisions, strives, enmities and wars, arms sales and drugs
sales. Furthermore, it is wrong to assume that Turkey’s secular
establishment is not elected; the President was elected, and the
pro-secular parties of the opposition have been elected. If we accept
the lies said by Abdullah Gul, the Turkish foreign minister, to Fareed,
even Erdogan’s party is pro-secular, so that too got elected.
It is strange why Fareed Zakaria fails to formulate sentences like ‘the
secular and unelected establishment of France’ or ‘the royal and
unelected establishment of England’; the terms would be equally valid.
What starts as ludicrous ends up as preposterous; now Fareed remembers
that he is a journalist. As matter of act, he behaves as a journalist,
and tries to convince people allover the world that the truth is as easy
to say as nothing! He calls Abduallh Gul to ask him whether he has a
hidden Islamic Agenda! And he says he does not!
To whom is this Fareed man talking? Does he take his readers as idiots
who would believe that it is up to a telephone call to get the precise
and true answer from a …… politician?
Call Putin to ask him his ideas about Kosovo! His next move in
Perhaps you could help your fellow country men if you called Putin to
ask him whom he is going to murder next, among those he frozenly wrote
on his blacklist!
Anyone allover the world would laugh with a statement of the sort; any
person older than 4 knows that politicians and statesmen are genuine
liars who would not stay for a moment in their positions unless they
keep ceaselessly, shamelessly and criminally saying lies, common lies,
But Abdullah Gul, marveled by the perspicacity of Fareed Zakaria’s
question, told him ……everything! What a laugh! Follow Fareed’s text:
"All the political and legal maneuvering aside, the issue at stake is
very simple. Does the AK Party have a hidden Islamic agenda that it
would implement once its nominee for the presidency, Abdullah Gul,
attained that office?
I put that question to the urbane Gul, currently the foreign minister,
during a phone conversation last week. "No," he said flatly".
Since Abdullah Gul said ‘no’, you can be sure than he meant ‘yes, they
have a hidden Islamic agenda’!
How to find out easily Erdogan’s hidden agenda!
For those among you who do not believe me, and for the supposedly great
editor Fareed Zakaria, I can tell you how you will discover the hidden
and unconfessed agenda of Gul, Erdogan, and their likes: you let
politicians spend their time calmly, and you let your beard grow. ….
You buy your return ticket to Konya (through Istanbul or Ankara). You go
to the first political meeting of the Erdogan’s party that is held
there. There are plenty. Eventually, you attend a Friday prayer at a
mosque in the whereabouts of Jelaleddin Roumi Mevlana magnificent tomb
and monument. You manage to have translator and you disguise yourself as
a Bosnian or Tatar Muslim from Russia, who immigrated to the country
where you are currently living. You say that due to decades of
socialism, you were not taught the faith of your ancestors that you want
to practice from now on.
Thus, you are entrusted, and nobody is going to ask your passport to
check whether you are Jewish, Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox, Buddhist
Gradually you start asking them about their program and Erdogan’s
program, what they want to bring as change in Turkey, how long they plan
to live under Turkey’s secular Constitution (in case Erdogan wins the
elections), and whether they believe it is good for them to tolerate
uncovered women in the streets of Turkey. Meet the imam of the person
you first talked to; meet some Konya deputies of Erdogan; they are
stupid, they will believe your story, and you will get it all.
It will certainly cost you more than Fareed Zakaria’s international call
to Abdullah Gul; but it will cost you less than the Islamic headscarves
you will have to buy for your wife, mother, sister and daughter.
You may have an objection there because you say you are Christian or
Jewish, Belgian or American! It matters not! A sheikh plans already the
headscarf that your female relatives will be forced to wear, whether
they like it or not; ask Erdogan’s follower in Konya. He will tell you
everything. You then make an international call – for charity purpose,
of course; call Fareed Zakaria….
