Αποκωδικοποιούμε την Τουρκία του Erdogan δύο μήνες μετά το δημοψήφισμα του Απριλίου!

minagias

Είναι αδιαμφισβήτητο γεγονός ότι τα όσα συμβαίνουν στην γειτονική μας Τουρκία δεν ενδιαφέρουν μόνο τις αρμόδιες κρατικές υπηρεσίες της χώρας μας αλλά και την ελληνική κοινή γνώμη. Και είναι εύλογο αυτό το ενδιαφέρον από την στιγμή που ο δύστροπος και αναθεωρητικός γείτονας μας δημιουργεί κλίμα έντασης αμφισβητώντας κατοχυρωμένα κυριαρχικά δικαιώματα και διοικητικές αρμοδιότητες της Ελλάδος που έχουν εκχωρηθεί από Διεθνείς Οργανισμούς. Είχαμε θέσει εμφατικά τον προβληματισμό μετά το αποτυχημένο πραξικόπημα του Ιουλίου 2016 για το «που και πως το πάει η Τουρκία του Erdogan».

After Middle East, Will Islamists Uproot Christians in Europe?

Giulio Meotti, June 4, 2017

We do not yet know enough about the three terrorists who, saying “This is for Allah!”, killed and wounded so many in London on June 4, but consider these two recent scenes:

Scene one: Manchester, United Kingdom, the “free world”. A British-born Muslim terrorist prays in a former church. All around him, the Christian sites and congregations accepted being turned into Islamic sites. The day after, this terrorist goes on a rampage, murdering 22 concert-goers.

Η νεοκυπριακή ασυναρτησία δεν έχει όρια τελικά

Cyprus-Buffer_Zone

Άριστος Μιχαηλίδης, 03 Ιουνίου 2017

Να βλέπεις τους Τουρκοκύπριους εταίρους στην κατεχόμενη πατρίδα σου να τσακώνονται στη μοιρασιά των κλεμμένων και να μην μπορείς να σιχτιρίσεις το κοινό τους όραμα. Διότι θα σε πουν τραμπούκο. Να κάνεις πως δεν βλέπεις, ούτε καν αυτά που λένε οι ίδιοι στις εφημερίδες ή στους κομματικούς καβγάδες τους, διότι όλα βασίζονται στην ψευδαίσθηση της κοινής μας πορείας και της αλληλοκατανόησης και οι ψευδαισθήσεις καταρρέουν άμα δεν τις προστατεύσεις από την ωμή πραγματικότητα. Κι εμείς, ως γνωστό, μάθαμε να ζούμε με ουτοπίες και φανταστικά κοινά οράματα και ανύπαρκτες ομοσπονδιακές προοπτικές.

Turkey’s influence network in Europe is leading to tension

Turkey-EU1.jpg

by Luke Rodeheffer , June 3, 2017

President Erdogan uses Turkey religious network in Europe to expand the government monitoring of opposition figures and gain popular support.

Reports from Germany that emerged in early April concerning preliminary proceedings against twenty individuals for spying on behalf of Turkey are the latest evidence highlighting the increased use of clandestine networks controlled by Milli İstihbarat Teşkilatı (MIT). MIT, Turkey’s national intelligence agency, is reportedly targeting dissidents abroad as Turkey undergoes the most far-reaching crackdown on civil society since the 1980 military coup.

Μ. ΣΙΖΟΠΟΥΛΟΣ: Δεν είναι ομοσπονδία που συζητούν !

Ο Μαρίνος Σιζόπουλος σε σύντομη παρέμβασή του, καταγγέλλει πως ΔΕΝ είναι ομοσπονδία αυτό που συζητείται στις συνομιλίες για το Κυπριακό, αλλά κάτι άλλο που παραδίδει την Κύπρο στον πλήρη έλεγχο των νεο-οθωμανών της Άγκυρας.

Why do gullible Greeks believe fake Turkish promises? The empty promises of Erdogan

greek refugees

By Dr Aris Petasis

God forbid that Greek Cypriots (G/C) agree to the Turkish/British-inspired Bizonal-Bicommunal-Federation (BBF) plan for the solution of the Cyprus problem because if they do they will gift to the Turks their freedom as well as their occupied properties.

For better understanding I suggest strongly that G/C elected representatives start reading about the fate of the properties in Asia Minor of the two million Greeks that were evicted in 1922. They will quickly realise that the Asia Minor Greeks got only promises and useless signatures and nothing else.
