J. Krishnamurti wrote: “If you depend on books (of the left and right ideologies, or on sacred books), then you depend on mere opinion, whether of Buddha, of Christ, of capitalism, communism or what you will. They are ideas, not truth.

Opinion about fact can be denied.  A fact can Never be denied. If we can discover what the truth of the matter is, we shall be able to act independently of opinion.”

“If we can discover what is the truth…” and in my opinion, we cannot discover truth of anything: We have an idea or a feeling of what opinion means, but can we ever know what truth is? The big liars are those who use the term Truth

In many moments in life we ask “what is the meaning of life?” and “what is the purpose in life?” Two questions that are not similar except for those who confuse meaning with definite purpose attached to it; sort of feeling obliged to act on life and the universe simply because mankind species is very particular. 

We are a bunch of jumbled passions that we all share at different degrees of power and interest: they drive our life.  We ache by reflection to re-order our passions and sort out the strongest passions that mean most to us.

Muslim cleric Gülen recognizes Armenian genocide: letter

The letter shows that the Muslim cleric, who lives in self-imposed exile in Pennsylvania, recognizes the 1915-1916 killings as genocide

Yeni Şafak, April 11, 2015

A letter, penned by U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gülen nearly 50 years ago, has revealed the Muslim cleric recognizes the 1915-1916 killings as genocide; a claim Armenia defends.

“…I can not continue without condemning the genocide perpetrated against Armenians in 1915. I commemorate the victims of Genocide with a deep respect,” said Gülen in the letter written to Archbishop Shinork Kalusyan, the former Armenian Patriarch of Istanbul on May 6,1965.

“I condemn with indignation and abhorrence the massacre of children of your great Prophet Jesus Christ by some ignorant people who think they are Muslim.”

Gülen was serving as a preacher in Kırklareli when he penned these lines to Kalusyan.

“Inter-faith dialogue” dates back to 1960s

His expressions in the letter have indicated that Gülen sowed seeds of his project to promote inter-faith dialogue in the 1960s.

“All nations and people are actually brothers and sisters because the grandmother of all of us is Eve and the grandfather is Adam. Man is mortal. Living as brothers is a need,” he said.

“All the monotheistic religions recommend people to be kind and forgiving. The principles of Judaism and Christianity are pretty similar. Prophet Abraham is the grandfather for all the great people that we call Prophets, who established monotheistic religions,” he said.

“It is actually immodest that people are taking a hostile stance to each other by mentioning differences in religion and nationality,” he explained.

“Your being in this position as a representative of Jesus who always orders people to be kind and tolerance is a great honor for me and my Muslim realm.”

“Your being in this position of always having tolerance for people and having orders others to perform favors as being a representative of Jesus is an honor for me and my Muslim realm.”

During World War I, the Ottoman rule deported hundreds of thousands of Armenians in Anatolia to present-day Syria in 1915-16. As a result, an unknown number of people were killed in civil strife or died from starvation.

Armenians living in the homeland and in the Diaspora call this event a “genocide”, whereas Turkey denies the deaths constituted genocide, saying those killed were victims of civil war and unrest.

The 1915 events remain a highly sensitive issue in the history of Turkey and Armenia.

In a historic move in 2014, President Erdoğan, who was serving as prime minister, extended Turkey’s condolences to the grandchildren of Armenians who had lost their lives in 1915.

Although his statement was widely welcomed by Europe and Armenians living in Turkey, Yerevan has remained unsatisfied.

Destruction from the Syrian War

Northern Levant: Where oil and gas reserves, oil pipelines and refineries trump everything else … except occupation of the land

. December 2, 2015

State of the Nation
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________

To this very day the Armenian Genocide, which began within the borders of the Ottoman Empire in 1915, has been vehemently denied by the Republics of Turkey and Azerbaijan.

Both Israel and the United States of America have likewise refused to acknowledge the historical reality of the Armenian Holocaust.  (Germany recognized last year its involvement in the genocide)

Why should these nations adamantly  persist in their denial of such a well documented crime against humanity?  

Because 100 years later in 2015 there is now indisputable evidence that the very same countries are perpetrating a similar genocide against the people of Syria, especially the Christian communities as occurred during the Armenian Genocide.  

The following photo-documentary presents irrefutable evidence of the engineered genocide of the Armenians (as well as the Greek and Assyrian Christians), just as the today’s alternative new media have provided similar evidence of the ongoing genocide of the Syrian people.
The Armenian Genocide (Warning: gruesome pictures)
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Only by understanding the true origin of the Dönmeh of Turkey
and the Wahhabi of Saudi Arabia will the Greater Israel Project
and the ongoing Syrian Holocaust be properly understood.

The entire Arab Spring — from start to finish — was planned in the capitals of the Zio-Anglo-American Axis just as each revolution was manufactured in the various Middle Eastern capitals.

In fact, not a single Arab Spring event has occurred without the fastidious planning and precision coordination of the CIA and MI6, DGSE and MOSSAD.

The Western powers not only engineered every government rebellion in the Mideast, as they continue to do so, they have been very careful to execute each coup d’état in such a way that the newly installed leaders are always loyal to them, not their respective citizenries.

Only with this understanding can the current Mideast wars and conflicts, genocides and holocausts, refugee crises and exoduses be comprehended.

Looking through the lens of history, particularly the most cataclysmic events of the 20th century, will likewise inform one’s understanding that history is once again repeating itself.

GERMAN CAPTION READS: “Crucified Armenian women in the region of Der-es-Zor (Modern-day Syria). Some women were saved – here in the picture – by Arab Bedouins who took them back down from the cross.”

The Execution Plan for the Armenian Genocide Duplicated in Syria

The preceding photo captured the crucifixion of several Armenian girls who were killed by the Young Turks working on behalf of the crypto-Jewish Dönmeh that ruled Turkey at that time.

Dönmeh (Turkish: Dönme) refers to a group of crypto-Jews in the Ottoman Empire who, to escape the inferior condition of dhimmis, converted publicly to Islam, but were said to have retained their beliefs.

The movement was historically centered in Salonica.[1] The group originated during and soon after the era of Sabbatai Zevi, a 17th-century Jewish kabbalist who claimed to be the Messiah and eventually converted to Islam in order to escape punishment by the Sultan Mehmed IV.

After Zevi’s conversion, a number of Jews followed him into Islam and became the Dönmeh.  Since the 20th century, assimilated Dönmeh might have intermarried with other groups and most have assimilated into Turkish society.[1]

The crypto-Jewish Dönmeh had infiltrated all levels of the Ottoman Empire prior to the engineered election of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the first president of the Turkish Republic.  Ataturk has been credited with being the founder of the secular Republic of Turkey in stark contradistinction to the former Ottoman Empire which enjoyed a large Muslim majority as well as sizable Christian population

The primary pretext for the Armenian Genocide was twofold:

(i) to remove the Armenian population from valuable land which was coveted by the oil companies

(ii) to scare the Armenian people away from their ancestral lands so that the state and concerned corporations could exploit it without interference.

(The alliance of the Turkish Armenians with Russia invasion and occupation of Turkish territories was a definite catalyst)

The article linked below presents the back story to this first genocide of the 20th century.

Why Were Jewish Zionists Behind The Armenian Holocaust?

It is important to be aware that while this fabricated pretext was operative at the time, it was merely a red herring so that the true reasons for the Armenian Genocide would remain secret.

That organized genocide, as it turned out, was one of the first series of acts of terrorism directed at an indigenous population within the Middle East in preparation for the formation of the Modern State of Israel.   As follows:

The international Jewish elite provoked the first world war in order to achieve several goals, including the revolutions in Russia and Germany and the destruction of the Ottoman Empire.

In 1917, Great Britain signed the Balfour Declaration, the promise for the creation of a Jewish state in Palestine.

British troops could gain control over Palestine and prepared it for the creation of a Jewish state in Palestine. Crypto-Jew Mustafa Kemal Ataturk created a Turkish Republic in order to destroy the Ottoman Empire completely.

The Jewish revolutionist Alexander Parvus (who got rich through arms trading) was the financial adviser of the Young Turks and the Jewish Bolsheviks supplied Ataturk with 10 million gold roubles, 45,000 rifles, and 300 machine guns with ammunition.

In 1915, the Young Turks committed a genocide against the Armenians, but also against the Greeks and Assyrians. The main reason for the Jewish genocide of the Armenians is that the Jews believe that the Armenians are the Amalekites, the arch enemies of the Israelites (Jews believe they are the descendants of the ancient Israelites).

The Turkish government and Jewish groups such as the ADL deny the Armenian genocide, highly likely because the key persons of the Young Turk movement were Jewish, including Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.[2]

The relevance of this critical piece of Turkish history should not be underestimated, particularly in light of the stealthily pre-planned Syrian War, as well as the unprovoked Anglo-American war of aggression against Iraq.

In both cases it was the extremely strategic geopolitical value of the Northern Levant, which the Anglo-American Axis (AAA) was determined to control, that triggered those unlawful wars.

As long as Syrian President Bashar al-Assad remained in power, such absolute control over the region would be elusive.  Similarly, Saddam Hussein had to be removed from power in Iraq for the AAA to exert its hegemonic authority over that nation as well.

However, it is Syria which is of utmost importance toward the completion of what is known in intelligence circles as the Greater Israel Project.

Hence, the Modern State of Israel (MSI) is prominently configured in every aspect of war-making against all the targeted Middle Eastern nations.  Not only does such deliberate warmongering advance the multi-decade, covert plan to trigger a Clash of Civilizations leading to a full-blown World War III, each of the wars/conflicts serves to strengthen Israel’s geopolitical position within the Middle East.

The Greater Israel Project

The Greater Israel Project lies at the very heart of the AAA’s geopolitical triangulation strategy throughout the Middle East.  The United States, the United Kingdom and the Modern State of Israel have collaborated quite closely for well over a century to implement this final phase of destruction of several Mideast nations.

Because their once clandestine agenda has now become transparent to the many concerned countries, these 3 nations have become known as the true Axis of Evil in the world today.

“Greater Israel”: The Zionist Plan for the Middle East

Just as the MSI was born out of terrorism, its methodical expansion through the outright theft of Palestinian land has occurred by way of incessant false flag terror operations.

These and many other highly deceptive and destructive tactics have been used against those who rightfully inhabit Palestine, just as they are now being utilized in Syria.

The very essence of their ‘Relocation Plan’ is the employment of every form of terror.  Just like the Armenian Holocaust was implemented by the same Zionist cabal to scare them away from their communities, which it did, the ISIS and Al Nusra terrorist groups have been set up and enabled to do the very same.

The purposeful and slow-motion Zionist genocide of the Palestinian people has likewise furthered the cabal’s Greater Israel agenda.

Systematically getting rid of those indigenous peoples throughout much of the Middle East is a central component of that agenda.  In this particular regard the AAA globalists seeks not only to remove the Palestinians from the MSI, but the Syrians from their lands as well.

Witness what is perhaps the largest mass migration in modern history of Syrian people to Europe. Irrespective of the fact that the forefathers of Syrians and Palestinians alike have lived in the Mideast for centuries and in Israel over millennia, the Zionist cabal is intent on their removal.

ISIS, ISIL and the ISLAMIC STATE

It is now common knowledge among the world community of nations that the United States, United Kingdom and Israel surreptitiously created ISIS and Al Nusra just as they created Al Qaeda.

The blueprint for the formation of these types of synthetic terror organizations came from the CIA’s establishment of the Mujahideen in Afghanistan.

By the use of proxy armies of paid mercenaries, which were comprised of ‘Islamist’ guerrilla fighters, the USA was able to defeat the Russian military in Afghanistan.  That development, in turn, permitted the Taliban to come into power which merely created another tyranny for the Afghans to deal with.

Mujahideen (Arabic: المجاهدين‎) is the plural form of mujahid (Arabic: مجاهد‎), the term for one engaged in Jihad.[3]

What is crucial to understand is that these mercenary jihadis have nothing to do with the religion of Islam.

Whether they were even raised as Muslims is in serious question since many of them were exposed to a false sect of Sunni Islam known as Wahhabism.

This form of perverted Islamic fundamentalism was made the official state religion by the crypto-Jewish monarchy of Saudi Arabia with the assistance of their Anglo-American overlords.

Likewise, the Dönmeh of Turkey introduced their own kind of Islam which had nothing to do with the Prophet Muhammad or the Koran, and a LOT to do with the pseudo-Kabbalistic practices of the similarly warped Sabbatean sect.

Ultra-Secret Conspiracy in the Middle East Revealed: The Donmeh, the Wahhabi and Zionism’s Sephardic Jewry

In this fashion did both Saudi Arabia and Turkey, one rabidly committed to the Sharia law of Wahhabism and the other solidly secular, respectively, furtively contribute to the calculated subversion of their neighboring states.

Through relentless stoking of the fires of religious rivalries between Sunnis and Shiites, each Mideast nation has fallen prey to these treacherous rivals, as well as to the ever-present Anglo-American raptors and Zionist hyenas.

The same cultural tensions and religious differences have especially been exacerbated in Syria and Iraq.

Prior to the wars which were inflicted upon them both, each nation enjoyed an unusual diversity of culture and religions.  Syria was particularly known for its religious tolerance and mutual acceptance.

Nonetheless, when the nexus of the CIA, MI6, DGSE and MOSSAD set about the process of creating ISIS and Al Nusra, what little there was left of the Mideast peace would be shattered in a New York minute.

Are there any fake revolutions or civil wars which were not hatched by the banksters on Wall Street over the past 200 years?

Who else could have arranged for the secret funding of ISIS and financing of Al Nusra, just like the CIA helped coordinate for Al Qaeda?  Both ISIS and Al Nusra are nothing but offshoots of Al CIAda Al Qaeda; albeit, using a different name so that a new brand of exceedingly violent terrorism could be launched.

This “Made in the USA” label which has been squarely affixed on all Islamic State terrorist products and services has occurred because of how transparent the photos of the ubiquitous fleet of Toyotas (with special gun mounts and all) had become.  

When the whole ISIL guerrilla army is wearing American cross trainers, covered up with Balaclavas made in Great Britain, and taking captagon that was manufactured in illicit drug enclaves which have been protected by the U.S. War on Drugs, what else could be expected?

That the USA funded, equipped and armed ISIS is now a generally accepted fact of life in the Middle East.  Even President Barack Obama has yet to deny such a self-evident truth.

CAPTAGON: Tons Of Amphetamine Drugs Smuggled Into Syria To Fuel ISIS Terrorism

Of course, there is also the dirty little secret that ISIS is really an acronym for the ISRAELI SECRET INTELLIGENCE SERVICE.

But how can this be so when it was just asserted that the U.S. intelligence agencies and secret services such as the CIA, NSA, DIA and NRO were primarily responsible for the global network of synthetic terrorism.

The answer is really very simple, but known to only a few armchair geopolitical analysts who did not sleep through their World War II history lessons.

ISIS = ISRAELI SECRET INTELLIGENCE SERVICE

All off the AAA intelligence agencies and secret services, to include first and foremost the aforementioned “nexus of the CIA, MI6, DGSE and MOSSAD”, have a common home in Switzerland.

Switzerland is not only the most protected banking capital in the world as demonstrated by its unique neutrality status during WWII, as well as home to the highly secretive BSI (Bank for International Settlements), it is also the true home of the headquarters of the CIA (aka The Company).

The correct knowledge concerning this covert arrangement of the international order of “CIAs” is crucial to the understanding of how Al Qaeda, ISIS and Al Nusra were created, as well as how they are quite efficiently sustained throughout the world.

It ought to be obvious to anyone with critical thinking skills that the appearance of ISIS and Al Nusra on the Mideast set — coming practically out of nowhere as they did — could only have happened with the enormous support of a well established network the size of The Company.

Bearing in mind that the CIA is actually connected to every Fortune 500 company, as well as to a whole slew of super-secret, privately held corporations strategically situated across the planet.

Clearly, the rapid emergence of ISIS and Al Nusra was both state and corporate-sponsored in a major way. Given this reality, there are very few state sponsors (with well connected intelligence agencies) that would qualify, and, therefore, which must also be working in concert in order to pull off this con of the millennium.

Hence, the CIA, MI6, DGSE and MOSSAD must necessarily all be working closely together to maintain the Islamic State. It has even been proven that ISIS-controlled oil wells and transportation routes have been carefully protected by the very same CIA-coordinated network, just as their oil revenues have been safeguarded in their ultra-secret Swiss bank accounts.

Crucifixions and Beheadings, Mass Shootings and Mass Graves

Who could possibly refute the effects that so many highly publicized beheadings and crucifixions would have on Syrian communities across the Levant?

Just like the Armenian Holocaust, the many spiritual communities which dot the Syrian countryside rightly assessed the danger associated with the Fric & Frac of terrorism—ISIS & Al Nusra.

They had seen this all before when the Armenians, Assyrians and Greeks, who also happened to live in the wrong place at the wrong time, were genocided by the Young Turks and their crypto-Jewish masters.

What better way for the Zionist cabal to clear the land of all unwanted Syrian citizens, sects and communities which might stand in the way of their designs for a Greater Israel?

Not only did their scare tactics work, as they did when they crucified the Armenian girls pictured above, and below, they have now overrun Europe with an unparalleled refugee crisis.

Because the same Zionist cabal effectively controls all the major leaders of the European Union, it has been quite easy for them to ensure a EU-wide open border policy.

In spite of an unprecedented backlash to the ongoing exodus ending up in both Germany and France, both Chancellor Angela Merkel and President François Hollande have obeyed their masters remarkably well.

Very few realize that the unending incidence of beheadings by ISIS and mass shootings by ISIL were carefully scripted to scare the living daylights out of every Middle Easterner.  Incidentally, whether these grotesque acts of violence were actually faked is inconsequential at this point.

All that the cabal wanted was to sufficiently terrorize the Mideast masses so that they could be corralled into any pen of their making.  By instilling the fear of wanton and barbaric terror into so many, the desired mass migration would take place of its own accord.  And so it did … and right on time in 2015!

Turkey: The Main Gateway into Syria for Terrorists and Mercenaries, Arms and Munitions, as well as out of Syria for oil and artifacts

Except that this whole mass migration was much more scripted than it initially appeared … and Turkey played the key role for entry into and exit out of Syria.

Clearly, the role of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is quite similar to Ataturk’s during the formation of the Republic.  Only in the current case Erdoğan appears to be taking Turkey back to the heyday of Ottoman Empire with an emphasis on its Islamic roots.

Screen Shot 2015-12-01 at 6.58.15 PM However, almost everything that Erdoğan does is a carefully executed deception.

He talks like a great leader but then acts like a petty tyrant.  He has done everything in his power to illegally remove Syria’s legitimate president.  Erdoğan has also somehow empowered Turkey to steal Syria’s oil and artifacts, take over its oil wells and refineries, and aggressively support ISIS at every turn.

The Turkish-Syrian border is in fact so porous that ISIS can get through to their strongholds easier than Syrians can get out of their war-torn country.

Truly, President Erdoğan’s Turkey has come to represent the very worst of war-profiteering.  And yet he dismisses the indisputable evidence of oil theft and artifact trading so cavalierly.

There is very significant reason why Turkey emphatically denies involvement in the Armenian Holocaust — they are now actively engaged in the Syrian Holocaust.

And, it is the very same shadow leadership of the crypt-Jewish Dönmeh that is leading the charge against Assad, his Alawite people, and the many Christian communities.

The very same reason applies to why Israel has refused to acknowledge the Armenian Genocide of between 1.5 and 2 million people. Because the entire mass murder was orchestrated by Zionists, they simply cannot admit that such an atrocity ever took place.

And yet neither the Turkish nor the Israeli governments offer any explanation as to how so many Armenians mysteriously died. Certainly, the many innocent and tortured Armenian girls (pictured below) did not crucify themselves.

HM-2013488991497665821377084050.5767

Why won’t Israel acknowledge the Armenian Genocide? The Donmeh Jewish leadership of Turkey was responsible.

Now the world knows why the recent beheadings and crucifixions of Syrian Christians were performed in such a dramatic fashion.  This is the way that the Zionists have always executed their terrorism, just as the American neocons show no regard for any nation that they invade and destroy (remember the shock and awe of the Iraq War).

In this manner the people of those victimized countries suffer such “shock and awe” that they can only think of  how to quickly exit such a hideous war zone.

Especially when the battlefields are overrun by Daesh (formerly known as ISIS) is the will to vacate the premises that much stronger.

‘Da’ish’ becomes ‘Ja’hish’ – “The state of donkeys in Iraq and Syria”

The Wahhabism of Saudi Arabia and Deliberate Distortion of Islam

The Wahhabi Muslim sect grew from an ultra-conservative Sunni branch of radical Islam unique to Saudi Arabia under the direction of Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab.

It has since become known as an extremely fundamentalist variant of Sunni Islam which bears very little resemblance to what the Prophet Muhammad taught. Further radicalization of the hard-core Sunni fundamentalist is the very hallmark of Wahhabism.

Wahhabism (Arabic: وهابية‎, Wahhābiya(h)) or Wahhabi mission[1] (/wəˈhɑːbi, wɑː-/; Arabic: ألدعوة ألوهابية‎, ad-Da’wa al-Wahhābiya(h) ) is a religious movement or branch of Sunni Islam 

It has been variously described as “orthodox”, “ultraconservative”, “austere”, “fundamentalist”, “puritanical” (or “puritan”) and as an Islamic “reform movement” to restore “pure monotheistic worship” (tawhid) by scholars and advocates, and as an “extremist pseudo-Sunni movement” by opponents.

Adherents often object to the term Wahhabi or Wahhabism as derogatory, and prefer to be called Salafi or muwahhid.[4]

Fast forward to 2015 and the whole world now witnesses on a daily basis the atrocities which are committed in the name of this false religious sect.

In truth Wahhabism has no real connection to the Islam that is expressed by the Qur’an.  It has been further manipulated by political forces (some would say tyrannical powers) in Saudi Arabia who use it to oppress the citizenry.

The following excerpt well explains how this is accomplished with great ease throughout the Arabian Peninsula … and beyond with the spreading tyranny of ISIS.

Wahhabism has been accused of being “a source of global terrorism”, inspiring the ideology of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), and for causing disunity in Muslim communities by labeling Muslims who disagreed with the Wahhabi definition of monotheism as apostates.[4]

Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab was exceedingly adept at taking pure spiritual principles and warping them as a way of controlling his adherents.  

There is no better example of this than the outright misrepresentation of “jihad”.  The original meaning of “jihad” is actually very beautiful and rich with profound spiritual meaning.  As follows:  

Jihad (English pronunciation: /dʒɪˈhɑːd/; Arabic: جهاد jihād [dʒiˈhæːd]) is an Islamic term referring to the religious duty of Muslims to maintain the religion. In Arabic, the word jihād is a noun meaning “to strive, to apply oneself, to struggle, to persevere”.[5]

The entire planetary civilization now only sees (and hears) of jihad in the most negative light. People everywhere have been conditioned to falsely believe that jihad is some sort of declaration of holy religious war by Muslims against the infidels (or, in some cases, against all other religions).

This blatant corruption of the sublimely spiritual notion of “jihad” occurred by purposeful design by those who have infiltrated the societies where Wahhabism was widely practiced.  Exactly who were those infiltrators?

The House Of Saud: It’s Jewish Origin And Installation By The British Crown

As Saudi Arabia developed its vast oil reserves over the past century, the spread of Wahhabism has grown rapidly, especially since the oil crisis of the 1970s.

In fact, a burgeoning Wahhabi movement now exerts considerable influence worldwide in the wake of its explosive growth that occurred with the 1973 oil embargo by OPEC and subsequent American energy crisis.

It is this extremely unhealthy symbiotic relationship between the USA and Saudi Arabia that has given rise to all manner of conspiracies and collusions which have served to forever destabilize the Middle East.

Of course, Israel also plays a major role in this ongoing scheme to create the necessary chaos out of which a new Mideast order will eventually be fabricated.

Russia Enters the Syrian Theater of War, Turkey Flips Out

With Russia’s entry into the Syrian theater of war everything changed.  The conspiratorial schemes of Erdoğan’s Turkey have been particularly exposed for the whole world to see.

The Republic of Turkey (previously known as the Ottoman Empire) is where the crypto-Jewish Dönmeh has been weaving its insidious webs well before the Armenian Genocide.

The clandestine Sabbatean network is now so well entrenched throughout Turkish society that it is virtually impossible to expose it or its ill-doings to any meaningful degree.

The direct involvement of Erdoğan’s government in the financial and material support of ISIS reflects just how controlled he is by the Dönmeh; unless, of course, he is really one of them just like Ataturk was.

Clearly his son Bilal Erdoğan is far deeper in this ISIS plot than his father would like him to be.  The key point here is that none of this mortifying exposure would have ever occurred were it not for the Putin’s Russia coming to the rescue of Bashar al-Assad.

In point of fact, it is only because the Russian military has entered the Syrian theater of war that so many other inconvenient truths have been revealed about the AAA support of ISIS.  The Russian aerial bombardment campaign has exposed the nexus of Turkish, Saudi, Israeli and American complicity in their prodigious support of the Islamic State, which was necessarily required for ISIS to effectively prosecute their war of terror throughout the Northern Levant.

The highly strategic geopolitical advantages provided to anyone that controls the Levant are quite obvious to the Zio-Anglo-American Axis.  The USA, UK and Israel have each eyed this location over decades because of its convenient access to the Mediterranean Sea, easy crossover for oil and gas conduits, as well as massive undeveloped oil and gas reserves.

The real problem there for the AAA is that the Russian Navy leases a naval facility located in the port of the city of Tartus.  Not only would Russia never give up this leased military installation, they consider President Assad a good friend and protector of the Christian communities.

Hence, President Putin had very good reasons to blow up the Greater Israel project before Syria went the way of Iraq and Libya.

Putin Goes Ballistic In Syria, Obliterates The USA’s Secret ‘Mideast Strategy’

The AAA conspiracy to keep ISIS terrorizing the Mideast, which has been funded, equipped and armed by the USA, UK, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Israel, is now being exposed by every Russian sortie flown over Syria.

The shoot-down of their warplane by Turkey has particularly laid bare the AAA support for ISIL.  Turkey has refused to apologize for such a naked act of aggression committed to protect their illegal oil shipments delivered by the Islamic State.

Russia has ‘more proof’ ISIS oil routed through Turkey, Erdogan says he’ll resign if it’s true

Not only does Erdoğan continue to deny the obvious Turkish act of war against Russia, he makes no pretense of his disdain for the Russian airstrikes on ISIS.  In all of these and many other happenings Russia has uncovered plot after plot which has caught the AAA co-conspirators in flagrant acts of unprovoked war-mongering, and especially in numerous instances of naked war-profiteering.

However, it is the much deeper conspiracy that Russia is disclosing through the daily drips and drabs coming through the RT.com multi-media platform that graphically expose the Greater Israel project for what it is.

Vladimir Putin: U.S. Implicated in Turkish Jet Downing

Conclusion

First and foremost, that the bogus Arab Spring was coordinated by the Anglo-American Axis, especially the USA, UK, France, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Israel.

The Obama Administration, and especially Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, were the key players in this CIA-coordinated black operation.  Likewise, UK Prime Minster David Cameron and Foreign Secretary William Hague made sure that Great Britain provided political and material support whenever necessary.

Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu as well as his entire government of warhawks have been deeply involved in every aspect of the Syrian Holocaust, although usually in a quite furtive manner.

Secondly, that the Obama Administration has been directly responsible for funding, equipping and arming ISIS via the CIA & Company.

While Christian communities have been ruthlessly wiped out, Obama has empowered their persecutors.  While Christians have been beheaded, crucified and shot by the hundreds after digging their mass graves, Obama has rejected Syrian Christian refugees.

Clearly, the President of the United States has empowered some of the most barbaric terrorist organizations of the 3rd millennium.

Top Obama Appointee: “President Knowingly and Willingly Armed ISIS”

Truly, there is now a stain on America’s honor that will never be forgotten.  The profound betrayal of American values, of the American people, and the friends of this once great nation is such that the world will never trust the USA again.

Vast swaths of the Middle East have now been transformed into a dystopian, post-apocalyptic wasteland because of the actions taken by the only hegemonic superpower on Earth.

Likewise, through the gross neglect and reprehensible inaction on the part of the United States of America, the indigenous peoples of the Mideast have been subjected to every kind of horror and indignity.

Now the world really knows why Turkey, Israel and the USA have steadfastly denied the terror-filled Armenian Genocide for 100 long years … … … and counting!  

Yes, the Zio-Anglo-American Axis is executing nearly the exact same scheme of extermination and forced mass migration as they did during the Armenian Genocide.  And the Zionist cabal is doing it right now, in the very same place throughout Syria (and Iraq) while the whole of humanity watches.

Author’s Note

The author acknowledges that oftentimes “God writes straight with crooked lines”.  In the case of today’s Middle East, the lines have never been so crooked … and crazy.  However, there is always something going on in the background that even those who run the world are completely unaware of.

In other words the endless mayhem and madness occurring in Syria and Iraq, Palestine and Libya may be happening in order to produce a specific divine outcome.

For instance, the mass exodus out of Syria is nothing less than a biblical event. Those folks may have been divinely inspired (after being methodically terrorized) to vacate what could be a battleground for a future World War III.

Much of the Mideast already resembles what many refer to as Armageddon!   Therefore, it requires very little imagination to see how things are certainly shaping up to transform a regional war into a full-blown World War III scenario.

Were nuclear weaponry to be used, who knows how many people would be killed or irreparably injured for life?   Once used, nuclear weapons would also contaminate the land, water and air for the foreseeable future.

The following video transcript of Natan, the teen prophet, is offered for further contemplation of the ever-intensifying conflagration known in diplomatic circles as “The Middle East Problem”.

Editor’s Note

There was an American silent film produced in 1919 about the Armenian Genocide that was based on an autobiographical account written by Arshaluys (Aurora) Mardiganian.  She also played the lead role in the film  “Ravished Armenia” which was also known as “Auction of Souls”.

The film depicts the 1915 Armenian Genocide, which was systematically carried out by the Ottoman Empire, from the point of view of the real Armenian survivor Aurora Mardiganian.

This cinematic rendition of the Armenian Genocide reflects the sheer barbarity and terror that was inflicted on the Armenian, Greek and Assyrian Christian peoples.

It is no coincidence that this shocking portrayal of the Armenian Holocaust is not dissimilar to the very same plight now suffered by the people of Syria.  One hundred years later and the world now witnesses the Syrian Holocaust being perpetrated by the very same Zionist cabal and their terrorist network.

I.  The Dönmeh

The Donmeh sect of Judaism was founded in the 17th century by Rabbi Sabbatai Zevi, a Kabbalist who believed he was the Messiah but was forced to convert to Islam by Sultan Mehmet IV, the Ottoman ruler. Many of the rabbi’s followers, known as Sabbateans, but also “crypto-Jews,” publicly proclaimed their Islamic faith but secretly practiced their hybrid form of Judaism, which was unrecognized by mainstream Jewish rabbinical authorities. Because it was against their beliefs to marry outside their sect, the Dönmeh created a rather secretive sub-societal clan. (Source: The Dönmeh: The Middle East’s Most Whispered Secret

II.  Sabbatai Zevi, founder of the Jewish Sabbatean movement

Sabbatai Zevi (שַׁבְּתַי צְבִי, other spellings include Sabbatai Ẓevi, Shabbetai Ẓevi, Shabbeṯāy Ṣeḇī, Sabbatai Sevi, and Sabetay Sevi in Turkish) (August 1, 1626 – c. September 17, 1676) was a Sephardic Rabbi and kabbalist who claimed to be the long-awaited Jewish Messiah. He was the founder of the Jewish Sabbatean movement. In February of 1666, upon his arrival in Constantinople, Sabbatai was imprisoned following orders issued by the grand vizier Ahmed Köprülü; in September of that same year, after being moved from different prisons around the capital to Adrianople (the imperial court’s seat) for judgment on accusations of fomenting sedition, Sabbatai was given by Köprülü, in the name of the Sultan Mehmed IV, the choice of either facing death by some type of ordeal, or of converting to Islam. Sabbatai seems to have chosen the latter by donning on his head from then on a Turkish turban. He was then also rewarded by the heads of the Ottoman state with a generous pension for his compliance with their political and religious plans. Some of his followers also converted to Islam—about 300 families who were known as the Dönmeh (converts). (Source: Sabbatai Zevi)

III.  Anglo-American Axis

The Anglo-American Axis is represented, first and foremost, by the major English-speaking countries of the world: USA, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Israel. The European member nations of NATO, such as Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands are also closely aligned with the AAA as are all the Scandinavian countries. So are the Asian Pacific Rim nations of Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and the Philippines. Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Egypt, Pakistan, Kuwait, Jordan, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, and Qatar also owe their allegiance to the AAA but some of these may be changing. The World Shadow Government is an ultra-secret, supranational organization which completely controls the Anglo-American Axis, as well as the European Union, NATO, among many other institutional entities which constitute the Global Control Matrix.

Genocide has deep causes: The catalyst is a major war to ignite the massacre

And why Germany committed this mass ethnic cleansing genocide on Jews, Ukrainians, Polish people, Tsigans…?

Because the colonial victors in WWI  refused to set up an international tribunal for crimes against humanity:

1. On the genocide of the Armenians planned by Germany in 1915 and executed by the Turks and Kurds

2. On the famine hecatomb in Mount Lebanon (1915-18), willed by Germany after a visit of its monarch  in 1909

This post focuses on the genocide of the Armenians and Lebanese.

But prior to that, let us refresh our memories of the colonial genocide before the cases of the Armenians and Lebanese people:

1. The massive killing of the people in the Congo (5 million) by colonial Belgium

2. the genocide on Indonesians by colonial Netherland

3. The genocide on people in Australia, India and New Zealand by the British Empire

 

And Hitler to wonder in 1939: “Who remembers the massacre of the Armenians?”

Actually, the Nuremberg Tribunal focused on the latest of genocide. The colonial powers executed a dozen of those they had no interest in using for their talent and professionalism, particularly in the development of weapons of mass destruction, torture techniques, sciences and spying.

The Nuremberg Tribunal didn’t brought to trial

1. the genocide in Libya and Ethiopia by Italy under Mussolini

The Nuremberg Tribunal didn’t convince anyone with strong links to former colonial powers that there can be serious consequences of committing genocide. Let’s start with:

1. genocide in Korea by Japan, China, Soviet Union and USA

2. genocide in China by Japan, Soviet Union and Mao Tse Tong

3. genocide in Viet Nam by the French and USA

4. genocide in Algeria by the French

5. genocide in Rwanda

6. genocide in Cambodia

7. genocide in Afghanistan

8. genocide in Iraq and then Syria

Shall we go on?

This post will focus on the two genocide of Armenians and Lebanese of Mount Lebanon.

When WWI started, Germany was the main western nation dealing with Turkey, in trade, military cooperation and training, building infrastructure (The Istanbul-Hejaz railway for example)

By 1906, the British Empire realized that it was unable to prevent Germany becoming the second economical power behind the USA or overtaking German external trade around the world in quality or price.

England decided that its best strategy was a preemptive war on Germany by blocking the maritime ports with which Germany imported and exported goods.

All the diplomacy of England was to ally France ( the largest land army) and neutralize Russia (the main trade outlet for Germany for many centuries) in the event Germany wage an all out war.

Germany had no qualm with France and Russia because it benefitted from these 2 countries.

Ironically, it is France and Russia that first declared war on Germany.

As Russia declared war on Germany, and since the Armenians in Turkey steadfastly and consistently supported and aided Imperial Russia frequent incursions into the Ottoman Empire since the 19th century, Germany planned the Armenian genocide and the new  colonial national zeal of the Young Turk junta systematically executed the plan, and in a very German professionalism.

It is to be noted that the Ottoman Empire was the most lenient and tolerant among all empires relative to its varieties of ethnic and religious diversities.

Germany finally decided to agree that it shared in the genocide of the Armenians by the planning of this mass murder. 

The roots for this hatred of the Turks against the Armenians was there, and it needed a new Nationalist feeling of the 20th century to go all the way according to the German decision.

The turks executed the plan in the large cities while the Kurds were assigned this job in the far fetched country side.

Germany was also behind punishing Lebanon and committed this genocide famine hecatomb between 1915-18

For example, the city of Kars in Turkey, on the eastern side of the Anatolia Plateau (Anadol), is built by the river Kars and is a must cross location on the routes from Georgia, Tabriz (Iran), the Caucasus and Tiflis. I urge my readers to recollect other cursed cities through history.

Eastern Anatolia and the Caucasus form one homogeneous geographic area in economy, culture, and social communication and trades.

The Armenians on both sides preferred to pay allegiance to Christian Russia and wished that Russia would grant them administrative autonomy in the Caucasus.

The Moslems on both sides paid allegiance to the Moslem Ottoman Empire.

The triangle of the current States of Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan were the scenes of major battle fields and invasions through history and is still a hot area till now.

The Nobel Literature Prize winner Orhan Pamuk published “Snow” that described the calamities suffered by the inhabitants of the Kars region.  The Armenian people lived in that region for a thousand years and then many waves of immigrants and refugees from persecutions flocked to it.

The Karss region hosted people from the Empires of Persia, Byzantium and then Moguls, Georgians, Kurds, and Cherkessk.

In the 17th century, the Karss region was predominantly of Moslems and then Armenians were second in numbers.

The absolute monarchic Russian Empire vied for this region since the 18th century.

In 1827, Russia entered Karss and chased out over 27,000 Moslems and transferred 45,000 Armenians to this city from Iran and the Anatolian Plateau.

The city of Yerevan (Capital of the current State of Armenia) that was mostly of Iranians was transformed demographically in 1827.

In every Russian invasion to the Karss region, the Russian troops could rely on the Armenian population for auxiliary regiments, logistics, and intelligence services.

As the Russian troops vacated the region in 1829, over 90,000 Armenians fled with the Russians fearing well deserved persecution.

During the Crimea War, which confronted Russia against the combined alliance of Britain, France, and the Ottoman, the Russians put siege on Karss in 1855 for many months and all the Ottoman army within the city was massacred.  The Paris treaty of 1855 forced the Russians to vacate the Karss region. The Ottoman troops retaliated heavily on the Armenians.

In 1859, the Cherkessk, lead by their leader Shamel, revolted against the Russians and Shamel was defeated; many Christian Russian Orthodox were transferred to Karss to replace the Moslem Cherkessk.  The same eviction process befell three quarter of the Moslems of Abkhazia in 1867.

Thus, in less than 30 years, the Russian Empire changed the demographics of the Caucasus from mostly Moslems to mostly Christians.

Over 1, 200,000 Moslems were forced to transfer to other regions; 800,000 of the Moslems settled in the Ottoman Empire. 

In 1877, the Russians amassed troops on the border with Karss; Sultan Abdel Hamid preempted the invasion by massacring the Armenians on ground that they will inevitably aid the Russians.

After 93 days of war, the Russians entered Karss and a pogrom on the Moslems proceeded for many days.

The treaty of San Estephanos relinquished the region to the Russian Empire. The Russians built a new city south of the city of Karess where the Emperor Alexander III met with his concubines and hunted.

In the next 43 years, the Armenians harassed the Moslems of this region and thousand had to flee.

In retaliation, Sultan Abdel Hamid formed in 1891 a special regiment of Kurdish cavalry with the purpose of harassing the Armenians of the Karss region and the pogrom around Lake Van raised an outcry in Europe.

During the First World War, the Armenians again aided the Russians and formed semi-regular armies to fight the Ottoman Empire.

On both sides, Armenian troops were under either the flag of Turkey or of Russia.

As the genocide was decided in April 1915, the Turks disbanded 125,000 armed Armenian troops and transferred them to dig ditches and construction works.

Consequently, in 1915, the Ottoman Empire launched the genocide plan against the Armenians and thousands died of famine during the long march out of Turkey.

The Armenians settled in Constantinople (Istanbul), and the people in the Adana region shared in the mass persecution; only the Armenians in the Caucasus, within Russia, were spared.

The British occupied the Karss region in 1919 and gave some authority to the Armenians who gathered arms from the Moslems and gave them to the Armenians and another round of harassment and massacres took place.

The Turkish General Mustafa Kemal re-occupied the Karss region in 1920 after defeating the Armenian army: the Bolsheviks were then allied to the new Turkish Republic.

The Russians transferred the Armenians from the region of Patum to Yerevan.

In 1927, all the properties of the Armenians in Karss were confiscated.

The Armenians were robbed of a homeland because Turkey ceased Cyprus to Britain in exchange of guaranteeing the Karss region to Turkey.

Mustafa Kemal (Attaturk) also negotiated a political deal with mandated power France over Syria to relinquish the Syrian region of Alexandrite to Turkey, setting the premises for future regional feuds.

Nowadays, there are no Armenians in Karss; the imposing buildings of Tsarist Russia are government Administrative offices; a vast villa of 40 rooms is transformed into hospital, and a Jewish museum.

An entire century of struggles, massacres, harassment,  genocides, and useless hate to their neighbors in order to gain self-autonomy rewarded the Armenians nothing.

They had to wait for the break down of the Soviet Union to enjoy the Armenian State that is totally dependent in its economy on the neighboring States.

Kosovo, Kashmir, Jerusalem, Gaza, and Palestine are current examples of lost opportunities for stability and peace.

Still Not called ‘Genocide’? 1.5 million Armenian systematically massacred

ISTANBUL — On April 24, 1915, Turkish authorities of the Young Turks junta hauled off Daniel Varoujan, a leading Armenian poet of the time, along with over 200 other intellectuals in the capital Constantinople.

To the crumbling Ottoman Empire, the poets, painters, writers, booksellers and politicians at the beating heart of the Armenian community posed too much of a threat.

 this April 23, 2015

100 Years Ago

Soon, much of the empire’s Christian Armenian population would be targeted and nearly wiped out, accused of conspiring against the empire with the Russians.

Many Armenians say the genocide was collective punishment for the actions of a few. (As in any genocide when a major war starts)

In August, after a wave of deportations began that would force hundreds of thousands of Armenians on brutal death marches toward the Syrian desert, Varoujan was tortured to death, according to eyewitnesses at the time. Varoujan was just one of many men, women and children who lost their lives.

This week, Armenians from around the world are gathering in Istanbul to commemorate the deaths of nearly 1.5 million Armenians who died in what would later be known by many as genocide, but Not  by Turkey, the United States, Israel, Saudi Arabia… (Watch those head of states who preferred to attend the commemoration of Gallipoli battle instead of the commemoration in Armenia)

A century on, the killings are hardly a thing of the past, with sensitive geopolitics still fueling the controversy.

(Hitler wondered before committing his own genocide “Does any one remember the Armenian genocide?” Germany had planned the Armenian genocide)

Regardless of how it’s labeled, here are some figures that explain the size and scope of this tragedy:

armenian genocide

Armenians killed by Ottoman Turks during the Armenian Genocide in 1915.

1.5 million

The number of Armenians believed to have been killed between 1915 and 1917.

“Rape and beating were commonplace,” wrote acclaimed historian David Fromkin in his Pulitzer Prize-winning book on the Ottoman Empire’s downfall, A Peace to End All Peace.

“Those who were not killed at once were driven through mountains and deserts without food, drink or shelter. Hundreds of thousands of Armenians eventually succumbed or were killed.”

An Armenian man in Istanbul, who as a schoolboy discovered his family was Armenian, told The WorldPost one story passed down to him by his parents:

His grandfather, too exhausted to walk any farther in the death march toward the Syrian desert (destination Deir al Zour), refused to go on. He would rather drown than walk another mile to his death, he told the Turkish Ottoman guards. And so, the man says, they held his grandfather under the water until he was dead.

250

The number of intellectuals reportedly rounded up by Ottoman Turks on April 24, 1915, in Constantinople (now Istanbul), kicking off what would become a massive wave of arrests, deportations and killings.

Many of these Armenians were later deported and in many cases killed. Armenians commemorate the anniversary of the Armenian Genocide every year on April 24.

“They took the intellectuals, the cream of the crop,” one Armenian book publisher who said his father, a baker, lived in Constantinople when the arrests took place, recently told The WorldPost. “They took the head and left the body.”

60,000

The number of dead bodies reportedly found in 1916 in a mass grave in Maskanah, a northern town in what is now modern day Syria, according to Jesse B. Jackson, U.S. consul in Aleppo. “As far as the eye can reach mounds are seen containing 200 to 300 corpses buried in the ground,” he said in a cable to Washington.

300,000

The number of Armenians who died during this period due to war and disease, according to Turkey, which vehemently denies the 1.5 million figure.

“According to independent researchers, 300,000 Armenians lost their lives because of the war and disease,” reads one Turkish state-provided textbook for high school students. “But during that time, Armenians killed 600,000 Turks and forced 500,000 Turks to leave their land.”

2,133,190

The number of Armenians living in the Ottoman empire before 1914, according to the University of Minnesota’s Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies.

387,800

The number of Armenians still left in the Ottoman Empire in 1922.

20

The number of nations that officially recognize the Armenian Genocide. The list does not include the United States, Israel and many others who on the centenary are grappling with labeling the killings a genocide. Germany is expected to finally do so on the anniversary.

The Armenian Genocide still remains one of the most bitterly contested events in history, especially for Turkey, fiercely defensive of its Ottoman past.

If President Obama decided to label the 1915 killings as genocide, already strained relations would likely only worsen with Turkey, where the United States has an important air base in the south, close to Syria.

Turkey and the U.S. government have butted heads over the Syrian crisis, with a U.S.-led coalition targeting solely Islamic State extremists, while Turkey insists military efforts must also focus on bringing down Syria’s Bashar Assad.

The United States has said Turkey, hosting over 1.7 million desperate Syrian refugees, has failed to do enough to counter extremists who often cross its border into Syria with ease.

The White House doesn’t want to use the fateful “g” word because it would anger the wrong people.

That’s essentially what officials said Tuesday when faced with increasing pressure to label the mass killings a genocide.

Citing “regional priorities” in its decision not to say the killings amounted to genocide, the U.S. government insisted it would urge “a full, frank, and just acknowledgment of the facts,” according to a White House statement.

The decision angered many Armenians in the United States and abroad who say they had hoped President Barack Obama would use the centennial as an opportunity to put things right, considering his track record of acknowledging the genocide prior to assuming the presidency.

armenian genocide

A box that contains bones of Armenians who were killed in Syria during their exodus from persecutions by the Ottoman Empire in 1915 are displayed at the Vank Cathedral in the historic city of Isfahan, some 250 miles south of the capital, Tehran, on April 20.

There is real concern in Turkey that legal ramifications of calling the 1915 massacres a “genocide” could lead to costly reparations.

In a recent column in the Daily Sabah, a Turkish newspaper known for its staunchly pro-government rhetoric, one columnist wrote that the genocide claimed by Armenians is just a ruse by the Armenian diaspora and descendants in Turkey to tear apart the country and take over Turkish territory.

While Turkey in recent years has taken more conciliatory steps towards addressing the killings of Armenians, with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan making what was considered to be a groundbreaking speech last year in which he offered condolences to the descendants of those killed, tempers have recently flared.

With the lead-up to the 100-year anniversary, Turkey has furiously defended itself from genocide claims, lashing out at the Pope and the European Parliament for their views on what is widely seen as a systematic slaughter.

“Concealing or denying evil is like allowing a wound to keep bleeding without bandaging it,” Pope Francis said earlier this month after calling the killings the first genocide of the 20th century. Ankara then recalled its ambassador from the Vatican.

Turkey’s Erdogan dismissed the genocide debate, just as the European Parliament voted on April 15 to call the events of 1915 a genocide.

On Wednesday, Turkey said it was pulling its ambassador to Austria over the debate.

While Turkey acknowledges that some Armenians died — calling them casualties of war, disease and chaos of the time — the state says that since the deaths were not methodically planned to wipe out Armenians, it does not add up to genocide.

“It is out of the question for there to be a stain, a shadow called ‘genocide,’ on Turkey,” Erdogan said last week.”

Nick Wing in Washington, D.C., and Burak Sayin in Istanbul contributed reporting.

This story has been updated to clarify that while Germany does not currently call the Armenian massacres a genocide, it is expected to do so soon.

Israel refuses to recognize the Armenian genocide by Turkey

As it refuses to admit that it has been subjugating the Palestinians by racist and apartheid policies

Israel does not plan to recognize the Armenian genocide perpetrated by Turkey, Rafael Harpaz, Israel’s ambassador to Azerbaijan, told Azeri website Trend.

“Israel is a democratic country, everybody has two opinions, not one opinion,” Harpaz said. “The government has a very clear opinion.”

He said Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman had made Israel’s policy clear.

Harpaz told Trend he hoped Israel’s troubled relations with Turkey would improve.

“There are enough common interests and issues in the world for us to cooperate,” Harpaz reportedly said. “I would like to take an example of Turkish Airlines. Turkish Airlines is the biggest foreign airline which is active in Israel. Istanbul is the biggest hub for Israelis. The same goes for tourism, trade which is up. We hope that our political relations with Turkey will improve.”

Harpaz has served as Israel’s ambassador to Azerbaijan since 2012.

Note: And Israel and Turkey fake that they have got differences while steadfastly making war on Syria, killing Syrians, and transferring more than 8 million Syrians during this 5-year long civil war and international coalition against the Syrian people.
