Turkey, Ukraine Plan Secret Jihad to Reclaim Crimea From Russia

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on July 15, 2016

Turkey’s President Reçep Tayyip Erdoğan and Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko by the end of June 2016 had embarked on a further escalation of their confrontation with Russia through the sponsorship of jihadism on the Crimean Peninsula.

This campaign is picking up pace to the point of becoming irreversible because of the recent activation of the Crimean Tatar Battalion and a Turkish-Ukrainian comprehensive program to Islamicize the border area with Crimea.

Kiev is an eager participant because this is the only program with the potential of markedly escalating the confrontation with Russia and preventing a political solution, even if the U.S.-led West attempts to impose one.

The escalation of the Crimean Tatar jihad is no longer influenced by the international diplomatic negotiations to solve the Ukraine crisis and will escalate should there be an attempt to impose a solution which does not recognize Crimea as an independent, Turkish-dominated Muslim state.

In March 2016, during Poroshenko’s visit to Turkey, the Crimean Tatar Battalion was declared fully operational after lengthy training in Turkey. Poroshenko spent time in Turkey dealing with the Crimean jihad.

The militant Crimean Tatar leaders — Refat Chubarov and Mustafa Dzhemilev — were part of President Poroshenko’s official delegation and joined him and Ukrainian senior officers in visiting the Crimean Tatar Battalion. Significantly, Poroshenko brought with him Ukrainian uniforms for the graduating Crimean Tatars. The Turkish military committed to providing the unit with weapons and other military equipment.

The Crimean Tatar Battalion deployed in the Kherson region on the border with Crimea in early April 2016. Refat Chubarov declared the unit to be “a national military unit”. However, Mustafa Dzhemilev announced that the new battalion would be called “Asker”: a Muslim Army.

The Crimean Tatar soldiers describe their unit as a “Suicide Bomber Battalion” committed to the liberation and Islamicization of Crimea. “If there is bloodshed and ethnic cleansing in the Crimea, this battalion will rescue its compatriots and do whatever it takes. That’s why they call themselves the Suicide Bomber Battalion,” Dzhemilev explained.

According to Refat Chubarov, the establishment of the Crimean Tatar Battalion was the beginning of a major historic program agreed upon by Erdoğan and Poroshenko. “Turkey and Ukraine worked out a plan to occupy Crimea by doing subversive actions,” he explained.

At the heart of the program was the transformation of Ukraine’s Kherson Province into a Turkic bastion from where the liberation campaign would be launched. The demographic change would commence with the emigration of 200,000 Meskhetian Turks from Turkey. They would be followed by Crimean Tatars and other refugees from the North Caucasus, currently in Turkey.

This new Muslim population would provide a manpower pool for the recruitment of the Muslim forces needed for what Refat Chubarov called the “reoccupation of Crimea”.

The new province would serve as the springboard for a comprehensive jihadist campaign throughout Russian Crimea aimed, in the words of Refat Chubarov, to “explode social and political situation in this region”. Moreover, a Turkic-Muslim Kherson would also break in two the presently contiguous Russian-speaking part of Ukraine which seeks secession.

Refat Chubarov noted that Erdoğan and Poroshenko agreed that Kherson would be named the Khan Giray Province. The Giray dynasty was the Genghisid/Turkic dynasty which ruled the Khanate of Crimea from its formation in 1427 until its occupation by the Russians in 1783. The Giray Khans had special standing in the Ottoman hierarchy the early 15th Century, and in the rebellion of Semiz Mehmed Giray in the early 16th Century.

By Ottoman protocol, the Giray Khan was second to the Ottoman Emperor and superior to the Grand Vizier. Subsequently, the Ottoman Sultan demoted the Crimean Khan to the level of Grand Vizier and the Sultan retained the right to install and depose the Khans.

Senior Turkish Intelligence officials acknowledge that Erdoğan’s “Ankara has been dreaming for long of occupying Crimea again, which was lost during Russian-Turkish wars”.

Erdoğan and Poroshenko also agreed that the U.S. was to be offered naval, air, and military bases in de-occupied Crimea in order to guarantee U.S. and NATO umbrella against Russian retaliation.

Significantly, the current flag of the Crimean Tatar Battalion under the command of Lenur Islyamov has the emblem of the Giray dynasty at the center.

LenurIslyamov is the commander of the battalion of the “activists” who blockade the traffic between the Crimea and Ukraine. He is a Ukrainian Crimean Tatar oligarch with major investments in both Ukraine and Turkey. Islyamov claimed that he “personally invested $10-million in an enterprise on the [Crimean] peninsula but later had to leave” when the Russians took over. Islyamov expects Kiev to compensate him for his losses.

In the last week of June 2016, President Reçep Tayyip Erdoğan committed to the marked escalation of training and preparing Turkic jihadists for the escalation of the pan-Turkic jihad. This is going to be a most audacious and risky undertaking for Ankara is going out of its way to ensure credible deniability of the entire program.

Turkish Intelligence nominated a retired general, known for his chauvinistic pan-Turkic ideology, to head the undertaking. He was instructed to set up a private security firm which would provide cover for the undertaking.

The security firm would recruit retired or fired high-ranking officers from the military, intelligence, and security services to run the training program. The retired Turkish general was explicitly told to focus on recruiting retired and expelled generals and colonels in order to reinforce Ankara’s ability to deny all association with the security firm and its efforts. The former senior officers were promised immunity from future prosecution regarding coups and other plotting against Erdoğan if they committed to the new training initiative.

The funding of the new “firm” comes from President Erdoğan‘s son, Bilal Erdoğan’s, various energy and transportation companies. Bilal is already funding a myriad of deniable sensitive operations for his father.

As well, Ankara is expecting Riyadh to provide lavish funding, albeit through deniable third parties and individuals. Erdoğan is convinced he has the commitments of both King Salman bin ‘Abd al-’Aziz al Sa’ud and the all-important Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the Deputy Crown Prince and Defense Minister.

The Turkish military and intelligence services would provide all the weapons and other military equipment through deniable fronts.

In the first phase, the security firm was tasked to formulate for, and present to, Erdoğan “important security master plans for the war” throughout the Turkic world. Erdoğan wants to create an “Army of Islam” which would spread his neo-Ottomanism and pan-Turkism. The master plans would include specific plans for specialized training for the various jihadists of this “Army of Islam” who would spread the pan-Turkic jihad.

The company was to quickly take over a few training camps currently used by the Turkish military and intelligence services in order to train jihadists for both Jabhat al-Nusra and the Islamic State/Caliphate. They will introduce their own highly experience trainers and experts as well as retain some of the current staff as “volunteers”. The company would continue to train the jihadistsfor the al-Sham front, but would increasingly focus on highly special training for jihadist from 34 Sunni Islamic nations.

The first non-Arab trainees were to come from nations which had distinguished themselves in combat in the al-Sham jihad front. These are, in the order of priorities of Turkish Intelligence, the Chechens-Dagestanis (and all other North Caucasus jihadists), the East Turkistanis/Uighurs from China, the Uzbeks, and the Greater Albanians (from Albania, Kosovo, and Macedonia).

A special training program would be set for the Crimean Tatars on account of their geopolitical importance rather than combat record in al-Sham.

Meanwhile, Erdoğan rushed to reassure Poroshenko of Turkey’s enduring commitment to the confrontation with Russia.

Erdoğan called Poroshenko, who was in Brussels, on June 27, 2016.

Turkey is a strategic partner for Ukraine, and Ukraine is a strategic partner for Turkey,” Erdoğan stated.

He also guaranteed that “all of our existing projects would be continued and would be broadened.” Erdoğan assured Poroshenko that there was no real rapprochement with Moscow, and that Ankara only expressed “sympathy for the family of the killed [pilot]” rather than apologized for the shoot-down of the Russian Su-24 in northern Syria on November 24, 2016.

Poroshenko was most satisfied with Erdoğan’s assertion and promised Kiev’s unyielding commitment to their joint confrontation with Russia.

The next day, June 28, 2016, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım formally repudiated all reports about a rapprochement with Russia.

Compensating Russia is not on the table, we have only expressed our regrets,” he stated on Turkish TV. There would be no change in the Turkish policy. Ankara “reached an understanding on this affair. We will put this incident behind us and continue on our path,” Yıldırım said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Erdoğan spoke by telephone for about half-an-hour on June 29, 2016.

According to Ankara’s version, the presidents discussed “bilateral relations and cooperation on regional issues and humanitarian crises … as well as taking necessary steps to revive the bilateral relations”. Turkish Presidential spokesperson Ibrahim Kalin said the conversation was an “important step” toward the normalization of relations. Turkey and Russia “opened a new page in which problems regarding bilateral ties and regional issues such as Syria, Ukraine and Crimea will be handled through dialogue and negotiation”.

The Kremlin sees things differently. Erdoğan was conciliatory, especially after Putin delivered condolences over the Ankara airport bombing of June 28, 2016. However, Erdoğan only expressed “sympathy and condolences to the relatives of the deceased Russian pilot” rather than apologize for the shoot-down.

Although Erdoğan called Russia “a friend and strategic partner” in an effort to have Putin commit to cooperation in defense and foreign affairs issues, Putin would not budge. Putin told Erdoğan that Moscow was ready to start negotiations with Ankara in order “to restore the mutually beneficial bilateral cooperation in trade, economy and other spheres”, but not defense and regional issues. Ankara would have to change policies — something Erdoğan has repeatedly refused to even consider — before the Kremlin changes position on these issues.

Simply put, the crisis and confrontation in the Middle East and the Greater Black Sea Basin will continue to escalate.

Never Again, Never Forget: Remembering The Armenian Genocide

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 25, 2014

William Saroyan, an Armenian-American writer, wrote in his short story “The Armenian and the Armenian,” “I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are not more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia. See if you can do it.”
The timeline of the 20th century bears the scars of some of the ugliest and most brutal events in human history. World War I, the “war to end all wars,” proved anything but, as brilliant minds devised brilliant means of murder and discrimination-fueled crimes against humanity were committed indiscriminately, beginning with the Armenian genocide.
On April 24, 1915, hundreds of Armenian intellectuals were arrested and killed in Istanbul by Ottoman officials, marking the beginning of the first genocide of the 20th century. An estimated 1.5 million Armenians were killed by the Ottomans, if not straight away, then during mass deportations.
Hostility toward Armenians began to mount increasingly toward the end of the Ottoman Empire. In the late 19th century, Sultan Abdul Hamid II grew increasingly wary of Armenians’ demands for civil rights and instituted pogroms to quell their protests. In 1908, a group called Young Turks overthrew Hamid and re-instituted a constitution, instilling hope in the Armenians for reform.
However, the Young Turks had a vision to “Turkify” the empire. In 1914, they sided with Germany and the Austro-Hungarian Empire during World War I. Perceiving Armenians as a threat to the empire, the Young Turks were already skeptical of them. These suspicions were confirmed after Russian forces with Armenian soldiers defeated the Young Turks during a confrontation in the Caucasus.
As a result, the Young Turks launched a campaign against Armenians, thereby initiating the 1915-1923 Armenian genocide. In 1914, about 2 million Armenians lived in the empire. By 1922, less than 400,000 remained.
After the murders of Armenian intellectuals, the Ottomans next targeted Armenian men who were rounded up and forced to join the Ottoman army. Soon after, their arms were seized and those who had not already died from brutal labor were slaughtered.
Without any Armenian intellectuals and leaders to plant seeds of revolt in the minds of Armenians, and without the men to try and fight back, they were left weak and helpless. Accordingly, the Ottomans then turned to their last target: women and children. Women and girls were raped, beaten and some were forced into slavery to work in harems. Armenian children were kidnapped, forced into converting to Islam, and then given to Turkish families with new, Turkish names.
In an article from The Independent, Robert Frisk describes the methods Turks undertook to “Islamize” Christian Armenian children, writing that, “some of the small, starving inmates stayed alive only by grinding up and eating the bones of other children who had died.”
The largest number of deaths resulted from the mass deportations of Armenians out of Western Armenia (Eastern Anatolia). Ottoman officials ordered Armenians out of their homes under the guise that they were being resettled in non-military zones for their safety. In reality, they were sent on death marches across the Syrian Desert to concentration camps. Once food supplies finished, the Ottomans refused to provide more. They were not permitted to stop for a rest, and those too weak to continue were shot on the spot. Ottoman officials oftentimes forced Armenians into caravans to strip, then walk naked under the blistering sun, thereby hastening their deaths.
About 75 percent of Armenians on these marches died, and countless unburied bodies scattered the Syrian Desert. In fact, there were so many bodies that even today, in the Syrian town Deir ez Zor, the bones of Armenians can still be found by merely scratching at the surface of the desert sands.
The Armenians were also gassed. Crude gas chambers were created by herding them into caves and asphyxiating them by lighting bonfires at the entrances. Other atrocities that took place include burning Armenians alive, crucifying them, drowning them and throwing them off cliffs.
Adolf Hitler understood the importance of wide recognition of the past when he asked, in a speech impending the invasion of Poland, “Who, after all, speaks today of the annihilation of the Armenians?” The crimes of our past serve as warnings for our future. Well, just about a century later, we are speaking today of the genocide of Armenians. No matter how hard one tries to edit history or censor truth, the ghosts of our past will haunt us until they are resolved. The current population of the Armenian Diaspora is estimated to be around 10 million people, forming Armenian communities all around the world.
Saroyan concludes his poem, “Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.”
Prominent Kabbalist: The Russian Invasion of Crimea is a sign of Impending Redemption
StSofiaOn Purim (Monday March 17th), Rabbi Moshe Shternbuch, Head of the Rabbinical Court of Jerusalem, allowed a secret to slip out. He peeled back the curtain and offered a peek into a tradition handed down from his grandfather, the Vilna Gaon, a prominent 18th-century Kabbalist:
Even though I am careful not to share the mysteries, I feel that this is something I am permitted to reveal..This was something Rabbi Isaac had received directly from those who heard it from the mouth of the Vilna Gaon, who said, shortly before his passing:
‘When you hear that the Russians have invaded Crimea, you will know that the bells of Redemption have begun to ring. When you hear that the Russians have reached Constantinople (Istanbul, Turkey, as it is called today), you can already don Sabbath clothes and await the appearance of Moshiach.’
Last week the Russians invaded Crimea and the world slept… According to our tradition from the Vilna Gaon, this is a sign of impending redemption … Perhaps what the Gaon meant by ‘bells of the redemption’ is like a bell that signals the arrival of someone or something.”

The Crimea: Luciferian Conspiracy Against Orthodox Christians

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on March 6, 2014

Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it!!!

Crimean War

Perhaps we were on the wrong side way back when we and the French sided with the Turks. Perhaps Istanbul would be Constantinople and the Christians of the Middle East would not be dying in their thousands.

  • Anglican England and Roman Catholic France were aligned with Islam’s sultan-caliph against the Orthodox Christians of Russia
  • The Rothschild Family finances the British-French war effort against the Czar
  • The Crimean War claimed 800,000 lives
  • The results of the Crimean War foreshadow future world events. It is the first direct assault on Russia by the forces of The New World Order
  • March 1854: Britain and France formally join Turkey’s war against Russia
  • March 2014: Turkey grants US warship permission to enter Black Sea
  • The New World Order’s secret war against Christian Leaders and Monarchs worldwide
  • Genocide on Orthodox Christians
  • 1918: Mysterious “Spanish Flu” kills 50-70 million people worldwide
  • Tafari Makonnen (the future Haile Selassie, Emperor of Ethiopia) was one of the first Ethiopians who contracted influenza but survived – 5,000 to 10,000 Ethiopians died in Addis Abeba alone
  • A number of oddities suggest that the epidemic is in fact the world’s first bioweapon. Was it intended to be used against the Ethiopian nation which just experience triumph in The Battle of Adowaover the invading forces of Illuminati Italy, but somehow backfired and infected the entire world as well?

The Crimea, today described as the “flashpoint” of the Ukraine crisis, was a “flashpoint” in the 19th century that claimed 800,000 lives.

One should not forget. Ottoman Turks and Crimean Tatars were notorious raiders and slave traders. Their atrocious cruelty against the Christian nations of the Crimea & Eastern Europe should never been forgotten. It bewilders me that the Tatars are still allowed to live alongside the Slavic nations of Russia and the Ukraine after the repetitive crimes they’ve committed against them.

One should not forget. The “flashpoints” created by imperial ambitions which erupted so spectacularly during the First World War have not gone away. The beautiful, temperate Crimean peninsula is still strategic territory, giving Russia access to the Black Sea. This is the only way Russia can gain access to Europe by sea, excluding the Baltic, which can easily be blocked by northern powers.

It’s difficult to understand today’s crisis in Crimea without understanding her past, which is why we’ve got to teach history and we’ve got to learn it. Crimea is a holy land for Russians. When you place Crimea in her historic context, it is not at all surprising that she is loyal to Russia and Russia is loyal to her. As historian, Orlando Figes explains, it was in Kheronesos, the ancient Greek city on the south-western coast of Crimea, where Vladimir, Grand Prince of Kiev, was baptized in 988, bringing Christianity to Russia. Clearly this was a strategic decision in itself, because the Crimea sits on the fault line between Christianity and the Islam, the force which Russia set out to defeat.

Constantinople had fallen to the Turks in 1453 and it was the founding myth of the Tsarist state that Moscow was the last remaining capital of Orthodoxy, the “Third Rome.” According to this ideology, which imbued every Tsar until the last one was shot in 1917, it was Russia’s divine mission to liberate Orthodox Christians from the Islamic empire of the Ottomans and restore Constantinople as the seat of Eastern Christianity.

The Economist wrote back in 2010 that the fighting (1853-56) in the then Russian territory of the Crimea was also a “holy war” for each belligerent power. Leaders used religious rhetoric and ordinary soldiers and sailors said their prayers as they tried to make sense of what they were doing. A war in which two Christian countries fighting a third claimed Islam as their ally

That, presumably, is the point Orlando Figes, a historian at Birkbeck College in London, is making with his British subtitle, “The Last Crusade”. His book reveals the strange mixture of meanings the war had for its combatants. He puts the conflict into its broader context: the determination of Britain (and with some reservations, France) to stem Russian expansion and to bolster Islam in its fight with eastern Christianity.

No, that last point is not a mistake. The great historical paradox of the Crimean war—and of the longer-term Russo-Turkish conflict of which it was one episode—is that Anglican England and Roman Catholic France were aligned with Islam’s sultan-caliph against the tsars who saw themselves as the world’s last truly Christian emperors. Above all, the western Christian powers were determined to avoid any reversal of the Muslim conquest of Istanbul: “The Russians shall not have Constantinople” chorused an English music-hall song. (pretty much the same in 2014)

How did the various players in this strange religious game explain themselves to their own pious subjects? For the theocracies of Russia and Turkey, and their God-fearing soldiers, things were fairly straightforward: they were fighting, respectively, for Christianity and Islam.

It was harder, you might think, for the Church of England and the Catholic establishment in France to explain their support of the caliphate. In fact, they found it easy enough to construct the necessary arguments. First, British and French clerics demonized Russian Orthodoxy as a semi-pagan creed. Second, they maintained that in some peculiar way the Ottoman empire was more friendly to its Christian subjects than the tsar was. (The Ottomans tolerated Protestant missionaries, so long as the evangelisers limited their search for souls to Orthodox Christians.)

In the spring of 1854, as the Crimean fighting began in earnest, an Anglican cleric declared that Russian Orthodoxy was as “impure, demoralising, and intolerant as popery itself”. What could be more natural, then, than to team up with Islam and popery to cleanse that terrible impurity? A French newspaper, meanwhile, gave warning that the Russians represented a special menace to all Catholics because “they hope to convert us to their heresy”.

As Mr Figes recalls, the tactical friendship between Western Christians and Ottoman Muslims had its limits. To be sure, British envoys to the Holy Land probably found more in common with lordly Ottoman administrators than with the exuberant faith of Orthodox Christian peasant-pilgrims. But not all Muslim Turks were overjoyed at being embraced, and hailed as Christian-friendly, by Western powers. When in 1856 the sultan yielded to Western pressure and granted Christians some equality, there was a backlash from the Islamic establishment across the empire.
