Turkey declaring independence from Kemalists and their Israeli backers
The reformist Turkish government of Prime Minister Racep Tayyip Erdogan is under a major attack by subversive elements of the Turkish "Deep State," known as the Ergenekon network. In just the past week, scores of military officers and others have been arrested and then released and re-arrested in a showdown between the government and judicial officials appointed under a military-influenced Constitution. The officers are charged with trying to overthrow the government in a plot hatched in 2003 called Operation Sledgehammer. The plan would have seen members of the Turkish military bomb mosques and attack museums filled with tourists with Molotov cocktails. The attacks were designed to weaken support for Erdogan and the Islamic religious movement of Fethullah Gulen and eventually lead to a military coup.
One of the basic principles of Erdogan's Justice and Development (AK) Party is amending the Constitution to eliminate the vestiges of two previous military coups in 1960 and 1980. Ergenekon wants to ensure the proposed constitutional changes, which preserves the military's and deep state's control over the Constitutional Court and other bodies are never enacted.
Erdogan now faces a critical moment. Since January, there have been four assassination attempts against the Turkish Prime Minister. Furthermore, WMR has learned that the attempts to kill Erdogan have been linked to the Israeli Mossad, which has been authorized to take any action to kill the Turkish Prime Minister who has criticized Israel over its attacks on Gaza and Lebanon. The plans to kill Erdogan have included using snipers and blowing up his aircraft in flight. WMR has been told by a reliable source that Mossad is using its Turkish network, including Ergenekon operatives, to carry out an attack on Erdogan and then hide behind its "policy of ambiguity."
In just the past few days, the Israeli government and media have stepped up personal attacks on Erdogan, with the Jerusalem Post opining that Erdogan is in danger of becoming a Hugo Chavez, a reference to Venezuela's president, and Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman suggesting that Erdogan will become another "Qaddafi," a reference to the Libyan leader.
The AKP initiative to re-unify Cyprus, split between the Greek-controlled Republic of Cyprus in the south and the Turkish Republic of North Cyprus (TRNC) in the north has also irritated the Israelis and Mossad. Since gambling is illegal in Turkey, many Turks flock to the gambling casinos set up in the TRNC. Russian-Israeli Mafia elements have a huge stake in the casinos and any attempt to change the political status quo in north Cyprus jeopardizes the Israeli crime syndicate's financial interests. Erdogan's main opposition, the Republican People's Party (CHP), which adheres to the Kemal Ataturk philosophy of secular fascism, is behind the TRNC. The CHP has been the public face of opposition to Erdogan while Ergenekon has been operating in the shadows to oust the government through coups and assassinations. The CHP has exacerbated tensions by using the Turkish word for "cockroaches" to describe Turkish women who wear the traditional Islamic scarf.
The Ergenekon network staged a major false flag operation in 2007 when one of its operatives went to the Council of State in Ankara, a citadel for the Kemalist judiciary, shot and killed a judge and wounded other people. The shooter then cried out "Allahu Akbar!" -- "God is great." The Kemalist press began calling the shooting "Turkey's 9/11" and suggested the AKP government was encouraging Islamic terrorists. The Ergenekon-influenced Hurriyet carried the frnt page banner: "September 11 of Turkey." After being shown to have carried neocon and Ergenekon propaganda, the two former "main stream" papers, Hurriyet and Milliyet, have been eclipsed by other papers, includingZaman, that are covering details of Ergenekon and on-going trials.
The entire Council of State operation was carried out by Ergenekon to weaken the AKP government. Many Turks agree that the United States, like Turkey, has a "Deep State" capable of carrying out false flag terrorist attacks against its own citizens. When asked if they thought the 9/11 attacks in America may be an American Deep State operation, many Turks merely smile. A few others offer up the belief that America's Deep State has been responsible for much more than 9/11 over the years.
A high-ranking official of Turkey's government-owned TRT television network told WMR that he doubts the authenticity of several video and audio tapes said to be from Osama bin Laden. TRT plans to start a 24-hour global news channel in English designed to expose how Bin Laden in "being manipulated" by other interests and expose the "manipulation" of Turkey in the U.S. media. The official said TRT English will bring the "true news" to people around the world but conceded that the new network will also "anger the big powers." The official said that his network has shown the Turkish people the killing of a popular journalist in Istanbul and false flag bombings in Istanbul and Ankara and that the Turkish people on the street are seeing through the game being played by the hidden deep state actors of Ergenekon.
The Ergenekon movement also operates its own non-governmental organizations (NGOs), many of which are run by retired generals. These think tanks are the source for much of the disinformation being used against the AKP, such as that it wants to re-establish a "caliphate" in Turkey. This propaganda is then picked up and disseminated by such neocon think tanks at the Jewish-run Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) and the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA). The U.S. corporate media, such as The New York Times, laps up the Ergenekon propaganda after it is re-stamped with the Jewish imprimatur.
WMR has also learned of Israeli intelligence fingerprints on the assassination of popular Turkish-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink in 2007. In 2007, Dink was assassinated in Istanbul by a 17-year old Turkish nationalist linked to Ergenekon. There were reports that attempted to link Dink's assassination to Kurdish Hezbollah and Islamists. However, WMR has been told by reliable sources in Ankara that Dink had enraged the Israelis and Turkey's Jewish and crypto-Jewish supporters of Ergenekon by suggesting that the secret society "Young Turks" political party of the pre-World War I era in the Ottoman Empire -- the Committee of Union and Progress (CUP) --was backed by the Rothschild family of Germany to hasten the dismemberment of the Ottoman Empire -- an event that would enable the establishment of a Zionist state in Palestine. The political heirs of the CUP is the CHP -- which has been linked to Ergenekon. Dink had uncovered links between the CUP and a Sephardic Jew from Salonika named Emanuel Caraso, later changed to Karasu. Karasu, who was also the Grand Master of Macedonia Rissorta Freemason Lodge in Salonika, was the front for the Rothschilds in the Ottoman Empire and the primary backer of the CUP. It is interesting to note that the billionaire George Soros is very much like Caraso in that he fronts for the Rothschilds in influencing politics with large outlays on money around the world, including through Open Society Institute NGO constructs in Turkey.
More recently, a Turkish Jew named Tuncay Guney, now in exile in Canada, has been identified as a Turkish intelligence agent, code-named "Ipek" or "Silk," who worked with Ergenekon and infiltrated the Kurdish Worker's Party (PKK), the Gulen movement, and the police intelligence JITEM organization. However, WMR has learned that Guney had another employer, Israel's Mossad, and that his escape in June 2001 from Istanbul to New York was facilitated by the CIA station in Istanbul.
The following is another text translated into English of a Turkish government report on Ergenekon, including its role in the 2007 Council of State attack:
The investigation officially began after the Trabzon Gendarmerie Headquarters' tip-off line received an anonymous call on June 12, 2007 saying that 27 grenades and C-4 explosives belonging Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) were to be found at Güngör Sokak № 2, Çakmak Mahallesi, Ümraniye district, Istanbul. This led to arrests of two suspects, Oktay YILDIRIM and Mahmut ÖZTÜRK. An investigation of the network of acquaintances of the suspects turned up more information and snowballed into the present situation. First, a search of Yıldırım's office in Reina and Muzaffer TEKİN's house revealed a secret document titled "Ergenekon-Lobi" about the group's plans. Statements from detainees led to arrests of several other following suspects: Kuddusi OKKIR was arrested and a search in his place revealed the intelligence documents titled as “The Re-structure of the State”, “Attack on the Turkish Council of State” and “Atabey’s Operation.” Mehmet Zekeriya ÖZTÜRK was arrested with these documents: "Ergenekon-Lobi", “Reorganization of Gladio and Mafia in Turkey”, human smuggling and special reports on Alevi population along with some other top secret notes in his possession. Both Aydın YÜKSEK, who was dishonorably discharged from Turkish National Police, and Muzaffer ŞENOCAK, who introduced himself as an officer in the Special Forces, were arrested in accordance to testimonies of Ayşe Asuman ÖZDEMİR, Gazi GÜDER, Halil Behiç GÜRCİHAN and Muzaffer TEKİN. During ŞENOCAK’s interrogation, police retrieved enough probable cause to arrest Fikret EMEK, where police also seized long-barrel rifles, grenades, explosives and explosive components at his house. The investigation also identified the operational unit Kuvayı Milliye Derneği (National Forces Society), which was established legitimately. Later other organizational documents, assassination plans along with some other top secret documents were seized in the possession of Ismail YILDIZ and Ergun POYRAZ. For example, documents belonging to Turkish General Staff as well as Turkish Army Command along with several secretly collected records on civil servants, representatives, ministers and even about the prime minister were found at Ergun Poyraz possession.
Police also detected the other group members, who were under the command of Muzaffer TEKİN and Zekeriya ÖZTÜRK.
After corresponding with other state agencies, the officials found out that ETO had no affiliation with Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) as well as Turkish National Intelligence Agency (MIT).
Documents seized from Muzaffer TEKİN and testimonies as well as the statements from Tuncay GÜNEY helped to prove the existence of ETO and enlighten the official investigation. Consequently, the investigation identified the people like Veli KÜÇÜK and M. Fikri KARADAĞ along with organizations like Kuvayı Milliye Derneği (National Forces Society-1919) and Milli Güç Birliği (National Power Union) in regards to the ETO. This led to arrest of Veli KÜÇÜK, Sami HOŞTAN, Ali YASAK, Mehmet Zekeriya ÖZTÜRK, Güler KÖMÜRCÜ, Sevgi ERENEROL, Kemal KERİNÇSİZ, Ümit OĞUZTAN, Mehmet Fikri KARADAĞ Özer KORKMAZ, Abdullah ARAPOĞULLARI, Erdal İRTEM, Hüseyin Gazi OĞUZ, Kahraman ŞAHİN, Erkut ERSOY, Recep Gökhan SİPAHİOĞLU, Oğuz Alparslan ABDÜLKADİR, Raif GÖRÜM, Hüseyin GÖRÜM, Yaşar ARSLANKÖYLÜ, Tanju OKAN, Muhammet YÜCE, İlhan GÖKTAŞ, Atilla AKSU and Asım DEMİR. In fact, officials found the original documents which were mentioned in the testimonies of Tuncay GÜNEY along with several other notes, plans and documents related to structure of Ergenokon Terror Organization (ETO) in the home of Veli KÜÇÜK.
During the search at Sevgi ERENEROL’s house, police seized a document called Ergenekon in Depth as well as the card indexes that have private information on some university faculty members reflecting their “political, philosophical or religious views, ethnic backgrounds, unlawful, moral tendencies, sexual lives and/or relationships to any syndicates".
It was also revealed that Mehmet Fikri KARADAĞ had been planning to commit shocking assassinations. The structure of Turkish Revenge Brigades (Türk İntikam Tugayı - TİT) and the assassination plans were all decoded during this investigation. As a result, Emin GÜRSES, H. Ümit SAYIN, Vedat YENERER and other suspects were arrested.
Subgroups under the leadership of İlhan SELÇUK, Kemal Yalçın ALEMDAROĞLU and Doğu PERİNÇEK were revealed and several top secret government documents, attack plans against Supreme Court of Appeals (YARGITAY) and NATO were also seized. For example the headquarters of Labor Party and some of party officials had personnel files of NATO base and files on unlicensed guns, plans indicating the structure of headquarter cell-houses, assassination plans against the members of Supreme Court of Appeals (YARGITAY), documents about President Abdullah GÜL, which were taken exactly from the sections of indictment against AK Party and security details belonging to Yaşar BÜYÜKANIT, then-Chief of the Staff. In addition, a letter which was handwritten by İlhan SELÇUK indicated the payment of 500 thousand dollars for a job to be done by Oral ÇELİK and notes detailing this meeting regarding about this job were found in İ. SELÇUK’s possession.
Osman YILDIRIM identified both Veli KÜÇÜK and Muzaffer TEKİN as the masterminds behind the grenade attack against Cumhuriyet Newspaper and Council of State (DANIŞTAY) shooting.
THE FOUNDATION AND STRUCTURE OF THE ORGANIZATION
After 1999, the organization began to be more open in civil public. By writing the hierarchical structure, purpose and aims of the organization and dividing responsibilities of each unit among its members with its leadership, the organization has planed to establish a state-like structure within the state.
In these written documents, the members of ETO viewed themselves as the true owners of the state, saw all the other government officials as traitors; also believed that the Constitution alone was not enough to make country safe and secure; thus, they all agreed on the necessity of a secret government-like structure to govern the state behind the curtain and for this reason members should commit assassinations against the major targets , if necessary, to make everybody obedient to Ergenekon structure.
HOW DID SECURITY FORCES VIEW ETO?
According to the General Staff, the documents, which were seized during the raids, were all counterfeited and forged by a computer technology to look like documents written in accordance to Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) regulations. Turkish National Intelligence Agency (MİT) viewed ETO as group of people, who target the current regime using force for to advance their self-interests. On the other hand, the Turkish National Police saw ETO as a professional and skilled organization. An organization, which has a division of labor among its members, financial power to provide the training and logistics as well as the future action plans for these members; and an organization where more than three people have come together to exchange information and interact in secrecy around these mentioned aims and goals.
Overall, when the weapons and guns seized in many raids as along with detailed attack plans and blueprints of the Supreme Court of Appeals (YARGITAY) building and ETO’s compliance to kill policy are all taking into consideration, ETO is perfectly fits into the definition of armed terrorist organization in the Law on the Fight Against Terrorism.
