This is Turkiye!

Turkey telah mengirimkan banyak bantuan untuk Gaza. Dan kali ini, Turkey membawa “ambulans udara” untuk mengobati mereka yang terluka. Setidaknya 200 orang akan dibawa ke Turkey untuk menjalani pengobatan, karena tidak mungkin dilakukan di Gaza sebab keterbatasan listrik dan perlengkapan. Ini bentuk komitmen Turkey membela Gaza. Di samping itu, NGO-NGO di Turkey sedang menyiapkan flotilla baru yang akan berlayar menuju Gaza. Kali ini, kemungkinan besar akan dikawal oleh AL Turkey.

Erdogan. Siapa yang tidak kenal beliau? Sewaktu kampanye presidensial Turkey, dia tidak menjual isu Palestina untuk meraup suara rakyat Turkey. Dia pun tidak berakting jadi pura-pura soleh di televisi. Tapi sesaat setelah dia menang 53%, langsung mengirimkan ambulans udara, setelah sebelumnya bantuan dan dukungan juga telah ia berikan untuk Palestina.

Ah, kau ini gila, Tuan Erdogan! Menjadi pahlawan kami di tengah banyak manusia yang berpura-berpura peduli padahal mereka asik menikmati hidup sendiri. Kau keras kepada siapapun yang mengusik rencana hebatmu itu, sampai-sampai mereka menjulukimu “diktator”. Tapi, apa pedulimu? Apa peduli kami? Yang kami tahu, kau sungguh-sungguh dengan kegilaanmu itu. Semoga Tuhan selalu merahmatimu, Tuan Erdogan!

Salam hormat setinggi-tingginya kepada Turkey dan segenap rakyatnya. GBU, Turkiye!
ISIS commander treated in Turkish hospital ‘like all other citizens’

Authorities in Turkey have confirmed social media reports that an injured Islamic State commander is being treated in a Denizli hospital, saying the militant has every right to receive medical care as he is a Turkish citizen.

What  makes this story even MORE telling and infuriating is that, during this same period, Esra Yakar, a Kurdish citizen of Turkey, was injured while providing aid and relief to those in Kobani. Unlike the injured ISIS commander, she was bounced between hospitals for over a day, losing an eye in the process, only to be sent to prison under suspicion of terrorism, and promptly sent to jail BEFORE being fully treated???

Aside from the fact that the charges were bullshit racism, the confirmed commander of ISIS was allowed to continue to receive treatment, under protection, in a Turkish hospital, while this Kurdish woman helping to provide care for those who have been affected by the atrocities of ISIS lost an eye and went to jail.

That’s Turkey for you.

#329 Because of President Erdogan.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan isn’t exactly known to be a fighter for gender equality, but do we really need world leaders who believe that women and men cannot be treated equally “because it is against human nature”?

On Monday, at the Women and Justice Summit, Erdogan addressed an audience of Turkish women (including his own daughter) with these statements:

“Our religion (Islam) has defined a position for women (in society): motherhood.”

“Some people can understand this, while others can’t. You cannot explain this to feminists because they do not accept the concept of motherhood.”

“Motherhood is something else.”

“Their characters, habits and physiques are different…. You cannot place a mother breastfeeding her baby on an equal footing with men.”

“You cannot get women to do every kind of work men can do, as in Communist regimes.

You cannot tell them to go out and dig the soil. This is against their delicate nature.”

Essentially, what he’s saying is that women aren’t people. Or kind of like people, but not people-people, not like men-people,  since women only have one purpose. 

According to The Guardian

“The Islamic-rooted government of Erdoğan has long been accused by critics of seeking to erode the country’s secular principles and limiting the civil liberties of women.

Erdoğan has drawn the ire of feminist groups for declaring that every woman in Turkey should have three children and with proposals to limit abortion rights, the morning-after pill and caesarean sections.”

Turkey ranked 120th of 136 nations in the World Economic Forum’s 2013 Gender Gap Index, down 15 places since 2006. A third of Turkish women have suffered sexual and physical violence at some point in their lives. Five women are killed in Turkey every day and according to Human Rights Watch, violence against women is on the rise. Erdoğan claims this rise in numbers is caused by more murders being reported rather than more murders being committed. 


On the outskirts of the Turkish capital, a new landmark looms over what was once Ankara forestland. It’s a new presidential palace complex, with at least 1,100 rooms and an official price tag of $615 million — although critics suggest both figures are probably higher.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says it’s a symbol of Turkey’s important and growing role in the region and beyond. But aside from the staggering size and cost, some Turks are wondering what the vast edifice says about Erdogan’s ambitions to rule Turkey for years to come.

“Only dictators want to live in palaces. Normal heads of state live in relatively modest compounds.”

- Izzet Cetin, opposition politician

From the street, the compound of three massive buildings looms up out of a muddy construction site, dwarfing the many security guards who shoo away picture-taking visitors. To one side, a crane looms over a partly built mosque designed to hold 4,000 worshippers.

The complex, nicknamed Ak Saray, or White Palace, was unveiled in late October. A video posted online featured dramatic aerial images of the imposing stone structures, with the national anthem playing in the background.

Turkey’s President And His 1,100-Room ‘White Palace’

The president’s daughter has its own foundation, manages the million and will also receive a generous consulting fee from her president father Erdogan. Everything is funded by Turkish tax money. This also applies to their private medical team in Urfa, which was established specifically for the treatment of wounded ISIS-terrorists and is led by her. She follows her brother Bilal Erdogan who operates oil-smuggling with ISIS, and her father Erdogan who grants weapons and logistical support to ISIS.

This is exactly why Israel monitors what is entering Gaza:

A shipment of “humanitarian aid” for the Gaza Strip that arrived from Turkey to the Ashdod Port yesterday (Wednesday) included hundreds of small metal marbles that could be added to an explosive device to increase the range of its blast and make it much deadlier.

Will Turkey’s New President Protect the Rights of Everyone?

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is Turkey’s first president to be elected by popular referendum. Three-time prime minister and leader of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) over the past decade, Erdogan’s leading place in Turkey’s modern history is guaranteed. That should not obscure the fact that the country has seen a very real erosion of human rights and the rule of law over the past two years as Erdogan has consolidated power.

If the days of military tutelage in Turkey are thankfully over, that doesn’t yet mean that Turkey has a government that is fully accountable to the people or a justice system that is independent and can guarantee that the law applies to everyone.

Since a corruption scandal implicating government ministers and their sons broke in December 2013, Erdogan and his ruling party have sought to change laws to suit their own agenda and muzzle social media. They have interfered repeatedly in the corruption investigation, reorganized entire parts of the criminal justice system, and in the process pursued a politically polarizing discourse rounding on opponents and critics. All of that came on the heels of Erdogan’s demonization of the Gezi protestors last year and repeated expressions of support forviolent police tactics and a clampdown on demonstrations.

Erdogan (President of Turkey): Women Are Not Equal To Men

Today, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan declared that women are not equal to men and launched a bitter attack against feminists in Turkey, claiming they reject the concept of motherhood.

Speaking at a summit in Istanbul on justice for women, president said that biological differences between women and men meant they cannot serve the same functions in life.

“Our religion (Islam) has defined a position for women (in society): motherhood,” Erdogan told an audience of Turkish women including his own daughter Sumeyye.

“Some people can understand this, while others can’t. You cannot explain this to feminists because they don’t not accept the concept of motherhood." 

He went on to say that women and men cannot be treated equally "because it is against human nature."

You know what i am Muslim and i can say that shame on you! You have daughters and you say they are not equal to your sons. You better read Quran again because you basically didn’t understand the concept of it at all.

The other thing about motherhood made me laugh. Because my great-grandmother was feminist. She worked like her husband and gave birth 3 daughters and a son and she loved all of them. My grandma is also feminist, she sent her daughters to university as well as her sons because they are equal in her heart and in reality. And Today my mother has 2 daughters. She works hard for all of us and i am really proud of her. As you can see mothers who work and mothers who don’t are basically same and you don’t have to be a slave of men to understand motherhood. Mothers don’t obey, mothers fight and survive for their children without caring their children’s GENDER

Oh, btw i asked my father what he thinks and some of his words made me think. He said ”…You know that %51 of Turkey is female and they vote for him and launch campaigns to support him…“.

Turquie: ouverture d'une enquête judiciaire contre le leader du parti prokurde

See on - Le Kurdistan après le génocide

Istanbul, 30 juil 2015 (AFP) Les autorités judiciaires turques ont ouvert jeudi une enquête à l'encontre du leader pro-kurde Selahattin Demirtas pour “troubles à l'ordre public” et “incitation à la violence”, a annoncé l'agence gouvernementale Anatolie.

Phénix kurde’s insight:


Le parquet de Diyarbakir (sud-est) a lancé une procédure contre le leader du HDP pour son rôle présumé dans des violences survenues en octobre 2014. S'il était jugé, M. Demirtas pourrait encourir jusqu'à 24 ans de prison, selon l'agence Anatolie.

Erdogan et le gouvernement turc cherchent tout simplement à profité de leur pouvoir pour faire un coup d'Etat. Si le HDP soutient le terrorisme, pourquoi l'avoir autorisé à se présenter aux élections législatives en juin 2015? Il est un fait que l'AKP a perdu la majorité absolue pour la première fois depuis 13 ans à cause du score de ce partie pro-kurde qui, avec 13% des voix, a obtenu 80 députés au Parlement. Un résultat inimaginable pour beaucoup. Ceci explique sûrement cela.

Et voilà que, bizarrement, la colère kurde face à l'inaction turque, l'automne dernier, pour sauver Kobanê serait la faute d'un seul homme, Selahattin Demirtas, le co-président du HDP! Mais de qui se moque-t-on! Obama, Hollande, Merkel et consorts ne pourront plus se regarder dans une glace s'ils laissent faire ça!
