The Muslim Brotherhood just made a coup and now the Muslim Brotherhood is the most powerful army in NATO after the United States? Most will laugh this off saying “are you kidding me”?
But you heard it right. This is no conspiracy theory.
In the Middle East, everyone is talking about how the Muslim Brotherhood just became the most powerful entity in the Muslim world. It is now even part of NATO controlling its second most powerful army after the United States.
All this happened this week.
The Muslim Brotherhood has now re-emerged from the dead after receiving a deadly wound by the famous Egyptian coup d’état on July 3rd 2013 when Egyptian army chief General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi led a coalition to remove the only democratically elected President of Egypt, Mohamed Morsi, from power suspending the Egyptian constitution.
Now the Muslim Brotherhood re-emerged via another coup d’état dubbed as The Palace Coup. This one was orchestrated by Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Turkey who is reviving the same style Muslim Brotherhood constitution through his referendum of Turkey’s constitution.
The Muslim Brotherhood will soon reconquer Egypt after it revives as the eleventh little horn. This revival will happen in 18 months from now and will stem from Turkey.
Yet the sleepy western analysts like the New York Times describe what just happened in Turkey in western style imagery as “Erdogan’s autocratic style” takeover. Erdogan, they say became like “The Godfather” or likened to “President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia for his authoritarian style and his ability to keep winning elections while eroding the quality of Turkey’s democratic institutions”.
Erdogan by his ‘palace coup’ is completely reshaping his political system into an Islamic Caliphate. Instead of reading the western headlines, try reading Middle Eastern sources that reveal the full story you never hear in the West. So lets start:
It all started in what the Middle East dubs as The Palace Coup. Erdogan from his palace in Ankara ousted the most powerful Muslim ruler in the world, the Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu. Davutoğlu was the boss and Erdogan was constitutionally a symbolic figure. The Palace Coup is a story on how the figure became thesupreme. Erdogan now became the ruler catapulting himself to become Sultan, the Muslim Brotherhood, the AK Party and even Turkey itself. It matters not if you read it from right to left or from left to right, it is all the same: Turkey is Erdogan and now the Muslim Brotherhood waxed into becoming Turkey which holds the second most powerful army in NATO after the United States.
So how did this happen?
A week before the fallout between Erdogan and Davutoğlu there was a firey letter sent by Davutoğlu’s counselor, Umar Korqmaz to the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood in Turkey.
The letter, as it turns out, was the end of Davutoğlu which made Erdogan “cease the power by intrigue”.
Korqmaz acting as Davutoğlu’s counselor warned the Brotherhood to stop their global outreach from Turkey to even go publicly on TV mocking the Muslim Brotherhood saying: “they [the Muslim Brotherhood] failed to establish the Caliphate through democracy in Egypt and now they have come to Turkey to make our democracy fail?”
The message from Korqmaz sparked jubilation in secular Egypt where the media theredeclared that “Turkey finally turned on the Muslim Brotherhood”.
But the issue was no small issue for Erdogan who loves the Brotherhood.
This whole fiasco began when the Muslim Brotherhood had a three day major festival sanctioned by Erdogan titled Shukran Turkie (Thanks Turkey). It was a global advertisement for Erdogan showing how Muslims across the globe thanked Erdogan as their savior who aided Syrian immigrants and defended the cause of Gaza and Jerusalem. The slogan “Thanks Turkey” was advertised throughout the Muslims world by public events reaching all the way to Canada.
It was the type of a grand finale Erdogan desired to send a message to the Muslim world that he is Sultan-Caliph deserving thanks and praises as the defender and champion of Islam.
The major event started a couple weeks ago (April 21) and went on for three straight days of festivities as if it was offered by the Muslim Brotherhood leaders who in turn gathered the top Islamist leaders from various parts of the Muslim spheres. It was a day of ‘Erdogan worship’. It was sort of like when “King Nebuchadnezzar summoned the satraps, prefects, governors, advisers, treasurers, judges, magistrates and all the other provincial officials to come to the dedication of the image he had set up …” (Daniel 3:2)
In the festival, the spiritual head of the Muslim Brotherhood, Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi gave a fiery sermon speaking on how they must revive the image and banner of the Ottomans and how no one can make war with the giant of Islam and how through Islam “Turkey’s might will conquer the rest of the nations”.
“You will only subdue all nations through this religion [Islam]” said Qaradawi adding “you will revive, you will revive”. “The Muslim world is more than what they claim” said Qaradawi adding that “there are 1.7 billion Muslims”. He went on sharing how a dead history is reviving and on how Ottoman Sultans were the best defenders of Islam and now with 1.7 billion Muslims now they should give allegiance to whom he called “Sultan Erdogan”.
