PRESIDENT BASHAR AL-ASSAD’S FULL INTERVIEW WITH TURKISH TV
“…And as if to emphasize that nothing has really changed yet, Erdogan keeps using the same rhetoric. Thus, notwithstanding the apology, Erdogan still insists on referring to the killing of civilians on the Mavi Marmara as no less than “massacre” and, according to the Turkish daily newspaper Hurriyet, Erdogan has even bragged that, in addition to receiving the written apology notice, he recorded his phone conversation with Netanyahu and thus has in his possession a recorded evidence of the pledge made by Netanyahu to cooperate with the Turkish government on the diplomatic process with the Palestinians. …”
من ينظر الى المشهد بعين الثور ويحلل بعقل الثورجي يعتقد أن الثورة قاب قوسين أو أدنى من الوصول الى غايتها وأن أعداء سورية يحاصرونها من كل جانب وسيطبقون عليها بين عشية وضحاها .. فأردوغان الذكي المغامر البطل مناور سياسي رفيع وهو يهيء الساحة لمغامراته وفتوحاته بالتخفف من اثقاله الكردية .. لكن الحقيقة هي أن اردوغان بعروضه السخية على الأكراد انما يقرأ الواقع الحقيقي المفاجئ ولو كانت قراءته متأخرة .. وهي أن مشروع تحطيم الدولة السورية وتبديل نظامها قد ذهب بلا رجعة باعتراف أردوغان غير المباشر عبر تحركه السريع نحو الأكراد واسرائيل وتقهقره في المسألة الكردية .. ويجب عليه منذ الآن اتخاذ الاحتياطات لمرحلة مابعد الثورة السورية وليس لمرحلة مابعد الأسد – كما يحب الاعلام العربي أن يردد – بل لمرحلة الشرق الأوسط مع الرئيس بشار الأسد ومحوره .. فالباشا رجب قدم تنازلات لحزب العمال الكردستاني لم يقدمها رجل في تاريخ تركيا .. والرجل فجأة ودون سابق انذار ارتمى في حضن الأكراد وبدأ مصالحة معه وشرع يقدم هذه التنازلات للأكراد رغم أنه نادى باعدام أوجلان قبل سنتين من الآن ورفض الاعتراف بالأكراد عبر عقود وحاربهم عقودا وفجأة ترنح عناده وهوى .. والرجل ليس مضطرا لكل هذا التقهقر في الملف الكردي لو أنه كان يجني الانتصارات في الملف السوري الذي يبدو أنه سيغلق دوليا .. المنتصر في سورية سينتصر في كردستان .. والمتقهقر في سورية سيتقهقر في كردستان ..
اسرائيل التي تتبجح كل يوم وتسرب أن الجيش السوري قد خرج من المعادلة وتزغرد معلنة قدوم عهد مابعد الأسد تتصرف بعكس هذا المنطق تماما .. فهي تسور نفسها بالجهاديين والاسلاميين .. وقد ساعدت في رسم حزام جهادي رفيع بطول 25 كم بين القنيطرة والجولان آملة أن يمتد الى مسافة 80 كم هي طول الحدود الجولانية .. ثم عززت ذلك بنصب بطاريات باتريوت .. والسؤال هنا .. هل بطاريات الباتريوت في الجولان لاسقاط صواريخ جبهة النصرة أم صواريخ الجيش الحر الذي تعهدت قياداته بالتخلص من المخزون الصاروخي والكيماوي السوري وقصم ظهر عديد الجيش السوري في حال وصولها الى السلطة !!
لاصواريخ تخيف اسرائيل الا صواريخ الجيش العربي السوري الذي تروّج اسرائيل أنه قد خرج من المعركة فاذا بها تستعد لملاقاته بالباتريوت !! واذا كانت اسرائيل تريد الهبوط عن الهضبة نحو دمشق لاسقاطها في عملية منسقة مع تركيا أو الناتو مستقبلا فلماذا تسور نفسها بالجهاديين ان كانت تخشاهم بدل ترك المنطقة خالية من كل شاغل لها؟؟ ..هذا الحزام الجهادي هو نسخة طبق الأصل عن نسخة جيش لبنان الجنوبي الذي شكلته اسرائيل في الماضي لأنها تستعد لمرحلة بقاء الأسد الذي سيستدير اليها حال انتهائه من المسلحين .. ليجد في وجهه جيش سورية الحر الجنوبي .. وهو المنطقة العازلة التي تنوي اسرائيل بناءها ..
هذا أيضا دليل قاطع على أن اسرائيل تهيء نفسها ليس لمرحلة مابعد الأسد بل مابعد انتهاء الثورة .. ثورة الأرملة السوداء ..
Netanyahu’s Road to Damascus
by Roy Tov
Tuesday, March 26th, 2013
as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven—Acts 9:3
On Friday, March 22, 2013, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu called Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan and apologized for the Israeli attack on Gaza’s Freedom Flotilla that caused the deaths of nine Turkish citizens. Afterwards, Netanyahu’s bureau released a statement. A repentant Netanyahu is such an impossible thought that it is worth reproducing the core of his declaration:
“The prime minister made it clear that the tragic results regarding the Mavi Marmara were unintentional and that Israel expresses regret over injuries and loss of life,” and “Prime Minister Netanyahu apologized to the Turkish people for any errors that could have led to loss of life and agreed to complete the agreement on compensation.”

Did you know? Israel’s Attack on Gaza’s Freedom Flotilla
|Zionist President Shimon Peres said that the Zionist entity has a thousand reasons to be friends with Turkey, expressing his satisfaction with the resumption of relations with Ankara.
“I can think of a thousand reasons why Turkey and Israel should be friends; I cannot find one reason why they shouldn’t be friends,” Peres said in an interview with CNN Turk on Sunday.
Peres stated that somehow both Israel and Turkey “wanted to put an end to this misunderstanding and return to the good relations that have existed between Turkey and ourselves for many good years.”
On Friday, Tel Aviv announced a full resumption of diplomatic relations with Ankara after Netanyahu phoned Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and apologized to him over the deaths of nine Turkish activists in an Israeli attack on a Gaza-bound international flotilla.
The Israeli military attacked the Freedom Flotilla in international waters in the Mediterranean Sea on May 31, 2010, killing nine Turkish nationals aboard the Turkish-flagged MV Mavi Marmara and injuring about 50 other activists that were part of the team on the six-ship convoy.
“… “The United States deeply values our close partnerships with both Turkey and Israel, and we attach great importance to the restoration of positive relations between them in order to advance regional peace and security,” (read concerted effort against Bashar al Assad)
|In their first phone conversation since 2010, the Zionist PM has apologized to Turkish PM Erdogan for deaths in the Gaza flotilla raid, Benjamin Netanyahu’s office said. The Zionist entity also agreed to compensation for bereaved families.
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan accepted the apology and agreed with his Zionist counterpart on the need to normalize the relationship that deteriorated after the UN report in 2011 made public the storming of a Turkish aid flotilla.
During Friday’s call, Netanyahu and Erdogan “agreed to restore normalization between Israel and Turkey, including the dispatch of ambassadors and the cancellation of legal steps against IDF soldiers,” Ofir Gendelman, the Zionist PM’s spokesperson said in statement posted on FaceBook.
Turkish ship the Mavi Marmara was on its way from Turkey to the Gaza Strip when it was intercepted by the Zionist Navy in May 2010. The vessel was part of a flotilla that was attempting to break an occupation naval blockade of Gaza. As a result of the incident, nine Turkish activists aboard the vessel were killed.
The news on the telephone call was broken by US President Barack Obama himself.
“I am hopeful that today’s exchange between the two leaders will enable them to engage in deeper cooperation on this and a range of other challenges and opportunities,” the US president added.
Never before throughout history would Syrian girls be dipped in black from top to toe at schools & at these ages. Were our fathers & grandfathers and their fathers & grandfathers all the way to first Muslims all misguided and only these new fanatic Wahhabis infesting Syria under NATO’s patronage the ‘Real Muslims’?!
At an elementary school in a city under Moath Al Khatib’s Nusra Front control in Aleppo’s northern countryside.
Wahhabizing Syria into small Islamist (not Islamic) Emirates to accept the new Caliph appointed by NATO, Erdogan thinks he’s the one, each Qatari Hamad (the Emir and the Premier) thinks he’s the one, each of the 30,000 Al Saud Emirs & their king think they’re the ones, and only the black operation room in the Pentagon knows who will be the one they chose..!
Erdogan, and the author are nothing but stooges and tooles for that crime against humanity, real Palestinians should not be fooled with what Erdoghan, Mursi, and Ghanoushi say, and should care for what they did during the last two years, especially in Libya and Syria, the cave of the Arab – Islamic resistance.
Yes zionism is a crime against humanity, but they, I mean the brothers of america are a crime against Islam and Muslims.
Israeli leaders have been infuriated by the fleeting remarks made by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the opening session of the Fifth UN Alliance of Civilizations held in Vienna last week.
To the people who are familiar with Israel, especially Palestinians, Lebanese and other Arabs who have been on the receiving end of Zionist criminality; Erdogan’s remarks are a statement of the obvious.
After all, Zionism is about the dispossession and usurpation of Palestine from its rightful native people, the Palestinians. It is the biggest act of theft and falsification since Adam and Eve. It was a crime against humanity then, it will always be a crime against humanity, no matter how many Congressmen and women praise the Jewish Golem.
In all honesty, I can’t find an iota of untruth in Erdogan’s words.
What else can be said about those gangs of Zionist Jews who came from Eastern Europe to arrogate, by way of terror and violence, a land that never belonged to them?
These criminal invaders didn’t come to Palestine in order to live and let live. They rather came to Palestine in order to slaughter the indigenous Arabs, Christians and Muslims alike, and dispossess them of their homes and lands in order to establish a racist Jewish state free of non-Jews.
They wanted and still want to do to the Palestinians what the White man did to native Americans in the Americas and Australia. The white colonialists annihilated millions of native Americans and called the genocide “manifest destiny.” Likewise, the Zionist murdered untold numbers of Palestinians, massacred Arab villagers at will and drove the bulk of our people to the four winds, and then had the audacity to call the genocidal ethnic cleansing “war of liberation.” Indeed, the Zionists and much of the Western world don’t even hesitate to commit an act of fornication with truth and history by calling their victims “terrorists.”
Even today, 65 years after Israel’s misbegotten birth, its leaders are shamelessly demanding that the victims recognize Israel as a Jewish state, where non-Jews, including native Palestinians, have no right to live except as wood hewers and water carriers.
In truth, there are a thousand observations justifying Erdogan’s remarks. In the final analysis, Zionism is too nefarious and too ugly to be described in words. It is a movement that combines ethnic cleansing, genocide, racism, mendacity, barbarianism and fanaticism.
In fact, it is extremely hard to find a similar movement in the history of mankind that would parallel Zionism in its brutal ugliness and nefariousness, both at the theoretical and practical levels.
Today, in 2013, we continue to be affronted with Jewish Zionist leaders who continue to argue amongst themselves if non-Jews are genuine human beings. The most prevailing opinion within Orthodox Judaism is that non-Jews, that are more than 7,090.000.000, are actually sub-humans or actually animals in human shape.
This is not merely an anecdotal remark. There are millions of Jews around the world who are fully convinced of the veracity and correctness of this belief. Two years ago, Ovadia Yosef, one of the most respected rabbis in Israel told a Sabbath homily in West Jerusalem that non-Jews were very much like donkeys whom the Almighty created in order to serve Jews.
Yosef is not a marginal or satirical figure in Israel. He was Israel’s Chief Rabbi and he now has hundreds of thousands of loyal followers. Unfortunately, his manifestly racist remarks raised no eye-brows in Israel, neither among politicians, nor intellectuals, not even amongst the media, which is very telling, indeed.
It would still be somewhat innocuous if Zionist criminality and racism were confined to the theoretical sphere. But Zionism, especially religious Zionism, which views non-Jews as animals or infra-human beings, also believes that the life of a goy, a non-Jew, has no sanctity and can be expended without any compunction. This is what prompts Jewish interrogators and prison wardens to torture innocent Palestinians to death, as happened with Arafat Jaradat last week.
Today, innocent Palestinians are routinely murdered in cold blood at the hands of Gestapo-like Zionist Jews, and when the murderers are apprehended and prosecuted, every conceivable legal trick is used to exonerate them.
Even when the indicting evidence is overwhelming, all sorts of extenuating circumstances are concocted in order to acquit the killers.
In 1953, Zionist Jews murdered my three uncles in one incident near the armistice line west of Hebron. Moreover, they seized our property, livestock and everything else, condemning us to 30 years of abject poverty.
Until this very moment, my family is yet to receive a simple Mea Culpa let alone any compensation from Israel for this crime. Compare this to rabid Zionist efforts to squeeze Europe to the last penny for stolen Jewish property and other grievances.!!
John Kerry has been dismayed by Erdogan’s remarks. But I want to ask the honorable Secretary of State “what do you know about Zionism?”
Would you forgive Zionism if it did to you even a small fraction of what it has been doing to us since 1948?
I know it is difficult for you and your boss, Obama, to be honest and spell out your conscience regarding Israel. But forget you are Secretary of State for a moment and try doing some soul-searching as a moral human being. I have no doubt whatsoever that you will find yourself face to face with the ugliest and most evil entity under the sun.
Yes, the Jewish stranglehold over American politics and policies will silence your conscience and the conscience of your boss. This is exactly what happened to most of your predecessors since time immemorial, which explains America’s shameless and unrestricted backing of the most Nazi-like state since Adolph Hitler’s Germany.
Today, Israel adopts the policy of lebensraum that Germany practiced at the expense of her European neighbors. True, Israel calls the policy settlement expansion but the substance is the same.
Israel, like Nazi Germany, is carrying out an aggressive policy of ethnic cleansing in Jerusalem and the rest of the West Bank by banishing Palestinians from their homes in order to settle Jews in their places.
And you are watching passively while reiterating the same platitudinous jargon that you have been babbling for many decades.
Remember, Mr. Kerry, the holocaust didn’t really start with Auschwitz or Treblinka or Bergen Belsen. It started much earlier in the early and mid-1930s when the Nazi authorities were indulging in the same harsh discriminatory and repressive practices that Israeli Jews are now practicing against the Palestinians, with government approval and encouragement.
I don’t expect you or your government to take Israel to task over its manifestly criminal behavior toward the Palestinians. After all, you are Israel’s protector and guardian. You are part of the problem, and you can’t be part of the solution.
But at the very least, don’t expect the victims to suppress their feelings by pretending that Israel is actually a charitable entity that has gone astray.
No, Mr. Secretary of State. Israel was evil from the very inception. At least for the Muslims and many Christians of this world as well as millions of other honest people, Israel is and will always be evil.
As for Erdogan, we must salute him for his honesty and rectitude.
“…AMERICA’S … rosy vision of a moderate and secular Syria after Mr. Assad’s downfall will not be achieved if the United States continues to depend on regional allies that have little interest in such an outcome.President Obama has relied heavily on Turkey in seeking to oust Mr. Assad and Secretary of State John Kerry is scheduled to visit the Turkish capital, Ankara, later this week. But Turkey is part of the problem. It is exacerbating Syria’s sectarian strife, rather than contributing to a peaceful and pluralistic solution.
While the Obama administration has encouraged a broad Syrian opposition coalition, in which the influence of Islamists would be circumscribed, Turkey has not been of any assistance whatsoever. Instead, the Turkish government has continued to throw its weight behind the Muslim Brotherhood. The Brotherhood dominated the Syrian National Council, which is headquartered in Istanbul, and has succeeded in eclipsing other groups within the new opposition coalition, effectively thwarting the American effort to empower non-Islamists.
Moreover, while sponsoring the Sunni cause in Syria, the Turkish government has made no attempt to show sympathy for the fears of the country’s Alawite, Christian and Kurdish minorities. The Alawites and the Christians have backed the government in large numbers and fear retribution if Mr. Assad is toppled.
Turkey has provided a crucial sanctuary for the Sunni rebels fighting Mr. Assad and has helped to arm and train them. Even more ominously, Turkey is turning a blind eye to the presence of jihadists on its territory, and has even used them to suppress the aspirations of Kurds in Syria. Last November, Islamist rebels from Jabhet al-Nusra, which has reputed links to Al Qaeda in Iraq, entered the Syrian town of Ras al-Ain from Turkey and attacked fighters from the Kurdish Democratic Union Party, known as the P.Y.D., which had wrested control of parts of northeastern Syria. The Nusra fighters were initially repelled, but have continued to cross into Syria from their safe haven in Turkey.
…… America can’t expect the Sunni Arab autocracies that have financed the Syrian uprising, like Saudi Arabia and Qatar, to help empower secular and moderate leaders in Syria. However, Turkey, a NATO ally, should be expected to promote a pluralistic, post-Assad Syria. It has not.
The Obama administration must therefore reassess the assumption that Turkey is playing a constructive role in ending the violence in Syria; it must also take a hard look at its own role in contributing to religious strife.
America’s policy of punitive sanctions and not-so-veiled military threats toward Iran has encouraged Turkey to assert itself as a Sunni power. The perception that Turkey enjoys American “cover” for a foreign policy that directly confronts Iranian interests emboldened the Turkish government to throw its weight behind the armed Sunni rebellion against Mr. Assad, Iran’s main regional ally.
Turkey quickly abandoned its stated ambition to have “zero problems with neighbors” and decided to join the United States in confronting Iran. It agreed to the deployment of parts of NATO’s antimissile shield, which is meant to neutralize a supposed Iranian missile threat.
Turkey’s shift flowed from the belief that it would gain power and stature and reap the benefits if America succeeded in rolling back Iran’s nuclear ambitions.
All of this suited the United States. Washington no longer had to fear that Turkey might be “drifting eastward,” as it did during the short-lived Turkish-Iranian rapprochement a few years ago, when Turkey broke ranks with its Western partners over the Iranian nuclear issue. Turkey also appeared to be an American asset insofar as it could potentially offset the influence of more conservative Sunni powers like Saudi Arabia.
But the Syrian crisis has had a radicalizing effect on all parties, including Turkey’s more moderate Islamist government. Under more peaceful circumstances, Mr. Erdogan might be able to live up to American expectations and promote a pluralistic vision for the Middle East. That won’t happen if the region is increasingly torn apart by violent religious conflict and its leaders believe that playing the sectarian card will enhance their power.
Removing Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq in 2003 had the undesirable consequence of empowering Iran. A decade later, America’s effort to remove Mr. Assad is partly an attempt to remedy this geopolitical setback. But, as in Iraq, it has had unwelcome consequences. Moreover, American policy toward Iran is encouraging opportunistic Sunni assertiveness that threatens to trigger Shiite retaliation.
The United States must beware of doing the bidding of Sunni powers — especially Turkey — that are advancing sectarian agendas that run counter to America’s interest of promoting pluralism and tolerance. Left unchecked, rising sectarianism could lead to a dangerous regional war. …”
