Parallel vs

education reformThe list of individuals that Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has declared to be part of an alleged “parallel structure” keeps growing.

The latest addition to the list is Haşim Kılıç, president of the Constitutional Court, which annulled the Justice and Development Party (AKP) government’s legislative amendments aimed at subjugating the Supreme Board of Judges and Prosecutors (HSYK) to Erdoğan’s minister of justice, and lifted the ban on access to Twitter and other social media networks. His possible rivalry to Erdoğan in the upcoming presidential elections makes Kılıç all the more suitable for the “parallel” label, obviously.

While Erdoğan and his choir are hyping their “parallel structure” allegations, however, there seems to be what one might call a “Persian structure” making headways into the arteries of the state bureaucracy (including the Turkish Armed Forces [TSK], the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the National Intelligence Organization [MİT]), academia and mosques. The AKP government’s policies have transformed so much in favor of Iran, at the expense of Turkey’s interests, that one wonders what could possibly be any different if Turkey were run from Tehran.

In the eyes of many both inside and outside Turkey, Prime Minister Erdoğan has lost almost all credibility. Yet, the allegations of “parallel” and “Persian” structures within the Turkish state apparatus remain serious claims and must be thoroughly scrutinized.

Parallel to what?

The first one is quite simple indeed. Erdoğan and his choir accuse the Hizmet movement, inspired by Turkish Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen, of having established a parallel structure in which bureaucrats and members of the police and judiciary who sympathize with the movement are allegedly receiving orders not from their superiors but from either Pennsylvania — where Gülen resides in self-imposed exile — or from their brethren in the movement.

More specifically, it was Murat Karayılan, then-”number two” of the separatist Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), who first alleged that the Hizmet movement had created a parallel structure within the state. In that sense, Erdoğan took the baton from the terrorist Karayılan by accusing the prosecutors and police chiefs involved in the graft probes that had implicated four ministers in Erdoğan’s Cabinet, an Iranian businessman and Erdoğan’s son, among others. Immediately after halting both the Dec. 17 and Dec. 25 graft probes, Erdoğan declared Gülen and the Hizmet movement his arch-nemeses and has gone beyond our wildest imagination in terms of vulgarity, using such words as “assassins, ” “leech, ” “false prophet, ” “fake scholar, ” “traitor, ” etc., to demonize both Gülen and individuals inspired by his ideas.

Nonsense-- your facts are selective

by Loku

Some jews left Arab countries voluntarily.
Some were expelled or left under threat of violence.
Neither situation was the primary impetus behind the founding of the state of Israel.
Israel -- as established by a vote of the UN in 1948 -- existed ONLY on the lands that Zionists bought from WILLING Palestinian Arab aristocrats...
ON LAND that had been, poltically, part of the Turkish empire.
Your stories about what one particular woman in Egypt are hardly representative; likewise Ben Gurion’s after-the-fact hyperbole with respect to the Kindertransport

"I mean, Jesus was a white man too. He was a historical figure, that's a verifiable fact. As is Santa—I just want the kids watching to know that." — Megyn Kelly
Wow! There are a lot of presents underneath that tree—It's almost too good to touch. But let's, m'kay?
1. Unless Jesus was an albino or possibly a time-travelling Swede, Jesus was a swarthy Middle Eastern type. Did you know that he was Jewish? If you read the Bible it kind of comes up a lot. Not nice American Jewish, either, the kind that was begrudgingly given acceptance in America only after a few hundred years of considering them even worse than Italians, but the Middle Eastern kind
