Erdogan abuses Israel as a distraction from the plummeting Turkish lira

Turkish President called Israel a terrorist state on Tuesday, May 15, the day that the lira plunged to its lowest ever point against the dollar. The lira has lost 15 percent of its value in the past three months. its record plunge Tuesday was sparked by Erdogan’s vow to take greater control of his government’s monetary policy if he wins the July 24 election, a clear vote of no confidence by the financial markets.
Erdogan hoped to draw attention from the two-digit inflation rate at home by blasting Israel’s prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu,  accusing him of having “Palestinian blood on his hands” after 60 Palestinians died in Monday’s raging riots on the Gaza-Israeli border fence. This stratagem may work in the short term, but not for long. The lira will continue to slide, and the Turkish economy go to pot, for reasons that have nothing to do with Israel and the Palestinians. This is the direct result of the growing strength of the US economy, which has the opposite effect on Israel’s thriving economy.
Turkish-US relations have never been so bad. The only part of the Trump administration willing to maintain a modicum of cooperation with Ankara is the Pentagon. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis contends that this is essential in view of the US Air Force’s use of Turkish air bases for attacking the Islamic State in Syria in Iraq. But the common ground between Washington and Ankara is shrinking for four reasons, although both governments are anxious to gloss over this decline.

  1. Erdogan to this day accuses US intelligence of supporting the attempted military coup for his ouster in July 2016. He never tires of demanding US extradition of the Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen whom he holds responsible for orchestrating the coup from his American exile.
  2. The Turkish president has been cozying up to Russia’s Vladimir Putin and has become the first NATO member to purchase Russian weapons.
  3. The Turkish army invaded the northern Syrian province of Afrin to drive the Kurdish YPG militia, a staunch US ally, out of that part of Syria. For now, the Turkish troops are stuck there because their further advance is blocked by US and French forces.
  4. Erdogan has developed close ties with the ayatollahs in Tehran.

Therefore, Erdogan will not help himself politically or ease his economic and military woes by rudely insulting Israel; he will only exacerbate them.

    Actually… It would seem as though Turkey is lock, stock & two smoking barrels with the SCO. And can ride through this short term economic drop… Of course a good time to Invest in Turkey as they have quite an industry. – It is the date of the west that is of more concern. Biblically speaking… If the Tanakh or Torah is actually correct. – Clearly illustrates the end of the US and almost by just a fraction. Israel only just survives what is soon due. Sadly, Israel will end up going through its worst time ever in all its history… Ever. Or ever will be. – This is because God seems to have designed things this way.

      Erdogan is correct.

      BOYCOTT ISRAHELL! The world can no longer be quiet.

      And Christians need to stop their stupidity of “Blessing” an apartheid country of Fake Hebrews, who indiscriminately shoot innocent civilians claiming their rights while they keep the rest caged like animals.

        The people of Turkey are nice people and it is tragic that this madman has taken to his dictatorial powers to arrest and convict anyone that opposes him. Its tragic that he is taking the Israel scenario that Iran has taken. He is like a rabid dog that needs to be put down.

      A number of Scriptures show America barely escaping total destruction, Judgement overdue; 400 year haven (see Joseph, 11 brothers and Jacob in Eqypt) for European Jews at 2020. Daniel 4 V-15 tells of Great Tree bound against destruction by bands of Iron. America is isolated after EMP and nearly starves except for remaining railway famine hedge.

      The only reason that makes trump decision to leave syria is: trump will not fight against turkey for the sake of the kurds. And if US leaves syria it will be a open door for turkey to attack kurds

      Your interpretation of Torah is what is to be expected of a “goy”. In the prophecies of Ezekiel, it is the Iranians who will die. Their army will be eviscerated. The U.S. and Israel, will survive.

      == Turkey is a islamic terror state supporting hamas. erDOGan is an idiot obsessed with Israels destruction. Spliting turkey in two by creating the kurdish state in eastern turkey will put the jihadists in Ankara on their knees.

    Ohhhhh, the pigman Erdo is sooooo afraid of the boogeyman Fethullah Gulen. Pigman Erdo wants to revisit the good old days when he supported the terror trips to Gaza (i.e. – Mavi Marmara) to deliver shipments to the terror enclave of Gaza to prove what a great hero he is to the terrorists.

    I recall that Israel gave you millions in compensation for the terrorists who got what they deserved when the embarked on that miserable mission to humiliate Israel. Big mistake by Israel – never compensate those who want to kill the Jewish people.

    Hey, pigman, when you find yourself in the same jails where you torture anyone who criticizes your Islamo-fascist regime, just give us a shout – we will get you out asap – not!!! The Turkish Spring will find you in the same difficult place as Qaddafi – not fun. So, pigman, either you are in the camp of the West or the camp of the Islamists – I see you have made up your mind where you are most comfortable!

      Agree, think he has about one to 2 years b4 their military takes it over, hands it to a reformer.
      They want what the ISI has in Pak.
      In meantime, Trump should request he leave nato

        Think that boat has sailed to be honest.
        Their shot was when he first came to power, as opposed to the military traditional role in turkish politics of keeping islamic parties out of power, they didnt coup him out.
        After more than 10 years in power, and having staged a fake coup as an excuse to accomplish a bigger purge of the army and the turkish legal and education system than even Stalin managed, i think he’s too well entrenched now and the military has been too successfully defanged to be able to do what is necessary.
        Attarutk knew that in a Muslim country the only way to ensure continued separation of Church and State was by force.
        The military fluffed it after 80 years of performing their role well.
        Now its too late.
        Im afraid Turkey is lost to modern civilisation, its backsliding and i dont see any forces apparent capable of pulling that back.
        Shame. Hope im wrong.

    Well, all the BS about the coin may be correct. But Erdogan is nevertheless right: Israel, along with KSA, are states sponsors of terrorism.
    1. Israel treats terrorists in their hospitals
    2. Israel provides aerial cover for terrorists in Syria
    3. Israel supplies weapons to terrorist groups
    4. Israel assists the terrorists in Syria with intelligence and communications
    5. Israel assassinates civilians:
    5.1. In Gaza
    5.2. In the West Bank
    5.3. In Iran (scientists)
    5.4 in the UK (character assassination of Corby)

    Israel is a rogue state and jews are hostages of a neocolonialism agenda

      @Rabi Nico,

      Items 1-4 in your post clearly misstate reality:
      Israel has supported non-ISIS rebels in Syria who are not terrorists but who are opposed to the Assad regime.
      Items 5.1-5.3 also totally misstate reality:
      The “civilians” you refer to in items 5.1 and 5.2 are Hamas, PLO and Islamic Jihad terrorists who attack Israeli civilians and military personnel.
      The Iranian “scientists” you refer to in item 5.3 were working for the Iranian military developing their atomic bomb.
      As for item 5.4, it seems Mr. Corby is very good at assassinating his own character.

      As for your bogus final statement:

      “Israel is a rogue state and jews are hostages of a neocolonialism agenda”

      It seems your own far-left agenda is clearly evident in your post.

    At the beginning of the Syrian civil war Erdogan’ was trying to recreate the Ottoman Empire but the Russians went into Syria nd stopped that. Erdogan’ is just your typical muslim dictator that does not want a democracy in Turkey. He wants to be incharge of the Turkish treasury so he can rob it blind like ALL dictators. Lovely guy. If he does succeed in controlling the Turkish treasure then their currency will really make a dive. It will be fun watching.

    By “reconciling”, apologizing for “Mavi Marmara” incident and paying erDOGan
    millions of $$ in “compensation,”
    Bibi humiliated himself and the Jewish state – (albeit under enormous pressure from the funny monkey
    in the White house at the time.)
    Now, the bitter Truth finally comes out: obamky and donkey-face kerry always were sworn enemies of Israel and Islamic butt-lickers – to the point of possible State Treason with the Iran “deal”.

    Turkey is definitely lost, its definitely the enemy and its only a matter of time before it is kicked out of NATO or leaves. Erdogan is nothing but a low-life muslim thug. If he’s not careful – he’ll bite off more than he can chew and end up in a war that he cant win.

  • May 16, 2018 @ 6:02 at 6:02

    Ukrainian Cossacks joyfully beat up the Turks throughout the middle ages. The Polish army stopped the Turkish invasion in Austria. It seems that Slavs know how to handle the Muslims. The infidel (Christian) Putin masterfully made the only Muslim NATO country into its vassal: he’ll use Turkey’s territory for his pipelines to Europe in order to avoid Ukrainian transit. Facts:
    a. Islam and a non-religious NATO/EU are proven to be incompatible;
    b. Christian anti-NATO (Russia) supports a puppet Muslim ruler (Erdogan) while colonizing his country. This is a Kadirov’s Chechnya model.
    It appears that even a comparatively wealthy and large Muslim country can’t form/keep relationships with other countries unless it subjugates them or being subjugated itself. 80 years of partial democracy could not change the Anatolian mob’s mind. Why then should Israel provide a state for the Palestinians who are even less worldly and definitely more anti-Semitic than the Turks? To fit into the modern world Islam needs a Reformation as Christianity had about 500 years ago. It seems that only the new and young Saudi rulers have the potential to start such a Reformation. I wish them luck.
