The Colonization of Turkey
For a country that was never colonized, the title of the present article is greatly preoccupying; and indeed, what happens in today’s Turkey should consume much thought and analysis among not only Turks but also Russians, Chinese, Persians, Mexicans, Indians, Brazilians, Japanese, and useless to add it, Africans.
Having been formed in the nucleus part of the Ottoman Empire that constituted an uninterrupted continuity of more than 600 years, Turkey was first constrained to fight against all sorts of colonials: the Russians had been defeated in the North-East by Mustafa Kemal Pasha (later known as Ataturk) already before the collapse of the Ottoman Empire. But there were French in the South, Italians in the South-East, English in Istanbul, and in the West, the Greeks were incited by the colonial powers to expand around Izmir. After the liberation of these territories, foreigners were not allowed to move through Turkey – except in rare cases and in custody. Thanks to Kemal Ataturk, Turkey was not colonized.
Among the great Oriental powers, only Iran, China and Japan could boast in the first half of the 20th century for having remained independent and sovereign, and for having thus averted the calamitous colonization phenomenon which proved to be overwhelming in other parts of Asia, Africa, America, Australia and Europe. But for the three aforementioned countries, their independence and their sovereignty have been somewhat conditioned by various factors.
Iran under the Afshar, Zend, and Qadjar dynasties progressively collapsed. Soltan Ahmed Shah, the last of the Qadjars, saw the Russians, the English and the Ottomans dividing his territory into spheres of influence, and later in 1925 Reza Khan, an officer of the Persian Cossack Brigade, was selected and promoted by the English in order to become nominally a Shahinshah and literally a puppet – king.
If it looks strange that the country that invaded Delhi in 1739 was semi-colonized 186 years later, the reason is to be found in the viciously Anti-Islamic Anglo-French diplomacies that worked ceaselessly to provoke continuous wars between the Persians, the Ottomans and the Russians in order to gradually destroy all these empires, and thus promote their plans for global colonization.
Of course, in spite of the support they offered to Reza Khan, who was merely an ignorant, inapt, gullible and uneducated soldier, the English and their successors, the Americans, knew that the imperial tradition of Iran, spanning over 2500 years of almost uninterrupted rule, would gradually impose its force over the young officer-made-emperor, and they pursued a perniciously anti-Iranian policy until they decided to bring the imperial regime down, and to replace it with all sorts of lowly Iranians, who had never partaken in the imperial tradition (either an imbecile student Abolhassan Banisadr or a fanatic and gullible Ayatullah Khomeini) and would therefore easily reduce Iran to a far more easily manipulated – and definitely harmless – state of third rank. Today’s Iran is totally controlled and doomed to play the role assigned to it by the colonial elites and their plans, which will lead the great country to destruction. In fact, Iran today’s is not different than India, Pakistan, Thailand and Malaysia, having become a serviceable piece on the global chessboard that was arranged by the perfidious colonial elites of France and England, and more recently by their stooges in America.
China had to face multiple threats in the very beginning of the 20th century; the country had long been targeted by the English (present in India), the French (present in Indochina), the Russians (present in NE Asia), and by the expansion of America (present in the Philippines in 1901) and Japan, to which Germany, Austria – Hungary and Italy were also added. The colonization of China was viewed by the colonial powers as the completion of the division of the world into colonial zones, and the way to bring China down was the incitement of civil war, and the corruption of the population through the forced use of opium, which was deviously produced in India under English control. The authentic Chinese reaction, the 1900 Boxer Rebellion, failed because it was characterized by an over-simplistic approach to the international politics and a failure to understand the pernicious nature and the real targets of the colonial West. In a way, the Boxers resemble today’s Islamists who, mixing sentiment, ignorance and naivety, imagine that, without a deep reassessment of their own situation, they will be able to "destroy" the "enemy".
The collapse of the Chinese imperial structure was the principal target of the colonial powers (the Boxers had to fight against the top eight powers of the then world!), because this is the nucleus of the political power that can threaten and overthrow the colonial powers’ illegal and inhuman plans. As a matter of fact, the colonial powers had practiced similar tactics in other parts of the world, in detached Ottoman territories, in Africa, in India, and in SE Europe.
By inviting to their capitals’ universities simple students originating from marginal backgrounds (who may otherwise have never had a single career chance), by impressing them with seemingly innovative ideas that were diametrically opposed and even alien to these students’ national and cultural background, by proselytizing them to secretive institutions like the Apostate Freemasonic Lodge (whose global hegemony plans are always unknown even to its middle-level hierarchy), by thus corrupting their minds and exploiting their human weaknesses, by pompously submitting to them to the craziest dreams for social, political and material success (which is the equivalent of spiritual suicide), and by finally reducing them to pathetic puppets unable to think of their lives as independent and self-reliant, the colonial powers created – without the Ottoman, Persian and Chinese empires’ reaction (in this specific but most critical point) – the dynamics that would offer them global supremacy, leading the opponents to ultimate insignificance.
Kuonmitang China (1912 - 1949) was much alike Pahlavi Iran, a country open to corruption, diffusion of Anti-Chinese concepts of life, and interference. The rise of Communism (Marxism – Leninism) in China can be viewed through two different standpoints; in a sense, it helped gradually create a major global power, and after the 1990s a potential superpower-to-be. On the other hand, as Communism led to diffusion of Western ideas throughout China (despite the real effort for local adaptation), it was the way of China’s cultural assimilation within the pre-arranged Western set of concepts and ideas that emanated basically out of Descartes, Kant and Hegel. This was a way of indirect colonization.
Japan remained an independent and powerful Eastern Asiatic country until the middle of the 20th century; its militaristic empire lasted only a few decades, but despite its overwhelming expansion, Japan – lacking the millennia old imperial tradition of China – never constituted a potential threat for the European colonialism. The geo-strategic position of the country at the easternmost confines of the Euro-Afro-Asiatic landmass, and its insular nature limit Japan’s eventual ambitions for global prevalence. Following its defeat in the WW II, Japan followed very brief procedures of demilitarization and liberalization, while its imperial institution, inexplicably left unpunished although guilty, was styled after Western European parliamentary monarchies. With the tremendous effort for economic development, academic progress, and social acculturation with the West, Japan became a rare model of country whereby the authentic indigenous culture survived alongside the rapidly introduced colonial concepts. Japan’s economic rise did not disturb the colonial powers because it did not harm the economic, cultural and moral order that they imposed. Despite its high military expenses and its unequivocal importance in the world trade, Japan has no geopolitical significance outside the circumference of the Far East.
The innovations introduced by Kemal Ataturk were hastily considered and unjustly accused by the collapsed Ottoman regime’s elites as Westernization; but one could hardly speak of a colonization. It was rather a multi-dimensional transfer of know how, and an adaptation of methods employed in Western, Central and Eastern Europe for socio-economic development and progress. However, until the late 40s, Turkey did not follow the typical anti-German and anti-Soviet directives of the colonial powers England and France that imposed no choice on the colonized realms and their local puppets. Under or after Ataturk (who died in 1938), Turkey was equidistant from Soviet Union, Nazi Germany and the so-called ‘liberal democracies’, the criminal colonial states of France and England. The first trip of the first Soviet Foreign Minister outside the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic was effectuated by Chicherin to Ankara; and Turkey entered WW II on the side of the Allies only in February 1945.
Turkey’s adhesion to NATO in the early 50s was partly due to the pro-American policy of the heretic premier Adnan Menderes, who had attended the American College for Secondary Education at Izmir in the 1910s, and pursued a steady anti-Ataturk policy that rightfully ended with his execution, following a military coup against his demagogic and catastrophic government.
Turkey is the only Asiatic country to belong in the NATO, and the country’s geo-strategic importance was a major factor in the colonial considerations of Turkey’s role in the Cold War.
The Turkish participation in the NATO was certainly a form of partly colonization, but it did not affect the Turkish society; in the beginning, it only created a small number of influential officers who perceived Turkey’s interests as parallel or identical with those of the colonial powers, England and France, and the Western superpower, America. This perception was due to mere confusion spread by the colonial elites with respect to the Cold War and the rivalry between the capitalist and the soviet systems. Today, we know that the Cold War was a massive affair of public opinion manipulation that helped the colonial powers engulf America and the Soviet Union into an incredible arms race, which in the span of 40 years brought one of them down.
As far as Turkey is concerned, the slow process of colonization took the form of deceitful advise to, continual bribery of, and secretive initiation of most of the 3-star and 4-star Turkish generals whom their American and English counterparts took good care to introduce to American and English Freemasonic institutions that are all controlled by the Apostate Freemasonic Lodge.
This does not mean that the top of the Turkish military hierarchy in its entirety adhered to the institution that fomented and has been carrying out the most anti-Turkish plans of the 19th and the 20th centuries; neither does it signify that these victims truly knew the essence of this institution and the nature of their secretive plans. They have been indeed cheated in a most sophisticated manner – like many top generals of other NATO countries that have no reason and no vocation to cope with the colonial plans of the NATO elite; in fact, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, Norway, Portugal and Spain had no evident reason to be member states of a military organization that was effectively run by elites having different – if not diametrically opposed – interests than all the aforementioned countries.
The colonial nature of a country’s participation in NATO is concertized in the diplomatic and military interference in the army enlisted promotion system, in the selection of political parties’ candidates for parliamentary elections, in the media support and the financial backing of the preferred candidates, and in their backing on the occasion of various official appointments, involving ministries, national banks, governmental organizations, and sizable state run companies. The diplomatic body of every NATO member state was also a case of colonial interference, particularly in the case of diplomats who had studied abroad, and had been earlier selected for apprenticeship in the Apostate Freemasonic Lodge’s various institutions.
How the first phase of Turkey’s colonization led to a second more precipitated one, with the rise of Recep Erdogan and Abdullah Gul, both low members and puppets of the Apostate Freemasonic Lodge, I will analyze in a forthcoming article.
Picture: Non colonial times before 300 years; when from the Atlantic to Indonesia, if traveling, one would cross only two borders, namely the Ottoman – Persian frontier, and the Persian – Indian boundary.
