Who is Erdogan? Update!

Update from post dated August of 2014:

Erdogan proclaimed winner in Turkey presidential election

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was returned to office with expanded powers, the country’s electoral board said Sunday, brushing aside opposition claims that the results were incomplete.

Sadi Guven, the head of the Supreme Election Council, said that 97.7 percent of votes in the presidential race had been counted and Erdogan had received an “absolute majority.”

The citizens of Turkey are well on there way to full dictatorship.

Look familiar? Erdogan just won the presidential election in Turkey. Who is this man and what will the future be for Turkey?

Erdogan, the former PM fo Turkey, has like other presidents promised “change” if elected and has promised to “try to govern the country from the presidential palace despite the fact that the constitution unequivocally empowers parliament and its selected prime minister as the center of executive power.” He has promised he will not be a ““traditional president”.

According to one report “Turkey is facing the prospect of being transformed from a one-party and one-man state to simply a one-man state under an Erdogan presidency. After winning the election with 51.8% of the vote he said:

“I greet you with all my heart on this historic day, a trophy night of democracy and the national will,” he said. “All of Turkey has won today.”

“Today we are closing an era and stepping into a new era,” he said

Erdogan’s current relations with the US and other countries are not healthy at this point. “……is an increasingly isolated country, and not just in the West, where antipathy for Erdogan has been rising steadily over the past few years because of his abrasive manners. This is also the case in the Middle East, where Ankara has few communication channels left with regional capitals and where polls show Erdogan’s popularity is waning. His past claims about Turkey’s rapidly rising regional clout and global influence are now a distant echo.” The last statement of global influence and regional clout may all be about to change.

Erdogan is Sunni Muslim and has constantly insulted Israel in their defense against Hamas calling them worse than Hitler and accusing them of committing genocide of the Palestinians. He has also refused to recognize Sisi as the legitimate ruler of Egypt since the Muslim Brotherhood was thrown out.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said Turkey will protect its stability and beef up its power at a moment when there are very important developments in the world and the region, in an effort to make peace and stability in the region permanent. Erdoğan’s statement came as the country’s Supreme Military Council (YAŞ) begun its semiannual work on Aug. 4 under Erdoğan’s leadership and with the participation of top military and civilian officials.

Is Erdogan the final ruler of Turkey? Will he be one of the leaders of Magog coalition led by Gog against Israel resulting in the Tribulation?

18″It will come about on that day, when Gog comes against the land of Israel,” declares the Lord GOD, “that My fury will mount up in My anger. Ez. 38:18

Turkey’s Erdoğan Tightens Grip

Turkey’s strongman president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, tightened his grip on power decisively on Sunday as his ruling Justice and Development party (AKP) swept back to single-party government with an unexpectedly convincing win in national elections.

The high-stakes vote, Turkey’s second in five months, took place in a climate of mounting tension and violence following an inconclusive June poll in which the conservative, Islamic-leaning AKP failed to secure an outright majority for the first time since coming to power in 2002.

The result could exacerbate divisions in a country deeply polarised along both ethnic and sectarian lines; Erdoğan is adored by supporters who hail him as a transformative figure who has modernised the country, but loathed by critics who see see him as an increasingly autocratic, even despotic leader……

Disappointment reigned in a small teahouse close to the party headquarters as a small crowd of men silently watched the election result being counted on television. “I can’t believe this,” said a retired teacher of 59. “I feel heartbroken. [The AKP] steal and kill, they put pressure on everyone, they muzzle the press, but they still win. I have lost faith in this democracy.”

Russia begins its’ Dominance in the Middle East….for Now.

Although it will not be the end of ISIS, it will escalate the many prophecies to come in the Middle East.

End of ISIS? Putin ‘sending 150,000 soldiers to Syria to WIPE OUT evil Islamic State’

VLADIMIR Putin is preparing to send 150,000 troops to Syria in a bid to wipe out the evil Islamic State once and for all.

The Russian leader is reportedly mounting an enormous military mission to take control of the terror group’s stronghold of Raqqa.

The city is the self-declared capital of in Syria and is patrolled by as many as 5,000 jihadi members.

Putin is set to mobilise 150,000 reservists who he conscripted into the military earlier this week.

ISIS – A Factor in Gog & Magog?

The war of Gog & Magog is still sometime yet in the future, but unlike in the distant past, today all of the countries that participate in this coming war are now in the news. Based on the verse below, it seems this war will mark the beginning of the Tribulation for God’s fury and wrath are held no more when Gog advances on Israel and His judgment will begin ushering in a 7 year covenant signed with the Antichrist, Israel, and many of the nations (as in the EU).

And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face. For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;Eze 38:18-19.

And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate. Dan 9:27

No country will come to Israel’s aid but, God will intervene before the attack on Israel causing the enemy to turn on themselves in a chaotic, hysteria of mass confusion caused by a massive earthquake. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Ezekiel+38%3A19-23&version=KJV

Turkey vows to Gobble

The tone out of Turkey has increasingly become more critical in the face of the Israeli/Hamas conflict.

Turkish leaders have strongly condemned an Israeli ground operation into Gaza that has killed scores of civilians, declaring the Israeli administration a “threat to international peace.”

While President Abdullah Gül warned Israel that its military actions could have dangerous repercussions in the region…. Gül and Erdoğan met with visiting Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to discuss the developments in the wake of Israeli aggression.

“Particularly, this noncompliant aggression of Israel is spreading the seeds of hate throughout the whole world, not just in Palestine,” Gül said July 16, “Israeli attacks have come to a very dangerous phase. I want to warnIsrael once more. If they do not stop, the outcome will be massive.”
Gül has urged Israel to end its military operations in the Gaza Strip, warning against “massive consequences,” and called on the U.N. Security Council to make a “cogent decision to end the Israeli offensive.”
Erdoğan’s reaction against Israel was much blunter…….“Israel is a country threatening the world’s peace. It’s a country that threatens the Middle East peace.

He also blamed the United States, Russia and other world powers for being passive in condemning Israel’s actions.

Turkey has even criticized the Muslim countries.

The prime minister also lashed out at the Islamic world. “When the West remains silent, the Islamic world watches too,” he said, calling on all sides to be moderate on Palestine. “We demand an immediate stop to the bloodshed . . . We are very much aware the Middle East deserves peace, prosperity, and solidarity,” he said.

“What happens in Palestine is not Shiite vs. Sunnis; that is why the Islamic world keeps silent. Our children and brothers are dying in Palestine. Humanity has been destroyed there, as well as the honor of Muslims,” he told the audience at Dolmabahçe Palace.

“Some Islamic countries are content with what is happening in Palestine today. If that is not the case, they will find themselves involved in the matter,” he said.

The political complexity continues to grow.

Both Gül and Erdoğan refuted claims made by Israel and Egypt that Turkey prevented a truce between Hamas andIsrael with Gül calling these assertions “ridiculous and remorseless.” Erdoğan also criticized the Egyptian leadership, saying, “[President Abdel Fattah] el-Sisi is himself cruel.”

Both Gül and Erdoğan held talks with Abbas, who paid a short visit to Turkey on July 18. Abbas informed the Turkish leaders about the developments in Gaza and exchanged views about how a cease-fire could be reached. Abbas said Israel’s objective was to try to nix the efforts of Hamas and Fatah to form unity in Palestine. “We count Turkey as our fundamental partner in our Palestine cause,” he said.

As the official mediator, Egypt is changing its’ stance on Hamas.

Egypt’s position regarding the management of the Gaza crisis has quickly changed, whereby it endeavored to reopen channels of communication with Hamas and bring Hamas back into the fold. This is the first such attempt since the Muslim Brotherhood’s administration was ousted and former President Mohammed Morsi removed. It also came at a time when Hamas rejected the Egyptian proposal for a cease-fire in the Gaza Strip, which coincided with the announcement of a visit by President Mahmoud Abbas to Turkey.

There is too much to post in this article, so for more information, it can be located below.

The US says, “Ambassador Shapiro: For US, Egypt is sole mediator in Gaza crisis”.
Meanwhile Iran has been given more time to produce a nuclear weapon…..
Nuclear talks deadline extended to November
The six world powers and Iran have agreed to a four-month extension of negotiations on a final nuclear deal with Tehran after failing to meet a July 20 deadline due to “significant gaps” between the two sides. The US has agreed to unblock $2.8bn in frozen Iranian funds, in return for Iran “converting 20% of its enriched uranium stocks into fuel.”

Operation Defensive Edge – The Ground Invasion

The Israeli ground invasion of the Gaza Strip has officially begun.

The first hours of Israel’s Operation Defensive Edge ground phase against Hamas were marked by heavy artillery and air pounding to soften up the terrain as the ground forces went in Thursday night, July 17. The troops advanced in two heads – one north to Jebalya and Beit Lahiya and the other south, where it went into action initially against Khan Younes and Rafah. The densely populated Gaza City has not been broached as yet.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told a special cabinet meeting Friday that the IDF is preparing to expand its operation in the Gaza Strip. “Terrorist tunnels can’t be destroyed just be air power,” he said. Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said the operation will go on for as long as needed. “Those seeking to disrupt our lives must pay the price.”

 

Meanwhile the Palestinian relationship with Egypt seems to be changing.

Thursday night, Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shokri said that Hamas was responsible for what was happening. He said, “Had Hamas accepted the Egyptian proposal (for a ceasefire) it could have saved the lives of at least 40 Palestinians.” Shokri said that Hamas was at fault for the IDF’s need to enter Gaza in a ground operation. He accused the Palestinian Islamists of harming not only Palestinian interests but also Egypt’s national security by associating with Turkish steps to undermine Cairo’s efforts for a ceasefire in Gaza.

The West Bank Palestinian’s are now looking to Turkey to produce a ceasefire negotiation.

Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas was to head to Turkey on July 18 to push a ceasefire in Gaza after Egyptian-mediated negotiations stalled and Israel launched a ground operation.

Cairo has been the hub of intense negotiations to end the 11-day conflict between Hamas and Israel, after the Palestinian militants in Gaza rejected an initial Egyptian truce proposal.

Egypt, under recently-elected President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, has moved to isolate Hamas, accusing it of backing insurgents on its own territory.

It has worked instead to bolster the role of Abbas – its ally based in the West Bank and rival to Hamas – in reaching a deal to end the conflict

Hamas ultimately wants the Rafah Border Crossing to the Egyptian Sinai opened which is currently closed by Egypt in their promise to “help” Israel. Opening this border crossing will allow Hamas to survive and ultimately allow for other insurgents including possibly the IS (Islamic State) to enter into the attack on Israel via the Sinai Peninsula.

Hamas may be aiming its missiles at Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, but Israel was ultimately a hostage in the Islamists’ effort to get closer to Cairo.

Hamas wants this in order to bring an end to the blockade on Gaza, open the Rafah Border Crossing, and in many ways to ensure its own survival……..

The bottom line is that the key to solving the current escalation was — and remains — in Egypt’s hands, not in those of any other Arab or international party. Hamas demanded the opening of the Rafah crossing between Egypt and Gaza from almost the first minute of the operation. Egypt rejected the idea immediately, as long as Hamas stands on the Palestinian side of the crossing. But Cairo has emphasized that, if there are Palestinian Authority forces under Mahmoud Abbas deployed there, it has no objection to opening the crossing.

 

What role will Turkey now have in this ongoing conflict? Will they persuade Egypt to open the Rafah Border Crossing and will it lead to the  fulfillment of Ezekiel 29:7 against Egypt? The Turkish PM has again lashed out at Israel.
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan once again lashed out over the shelling of Gaza on July 18, claiming that Israel was committing “genocide” of the Palestinian people.“[Israel] has never pretended to be pro-peace. It has always tormented [the Palestinian people] and today it is continuing to do so,” Erdoğan said, stressing that good relations with Israel were “impossible” under the current circumstances.“The government and I will never look positively [at Israel] as long as we are in power … [Israel] may seem like the winner for now. But it will eventually be defeated,” Erdoğan added.Erdoğan also slammed Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi as an “illegitimate tyrant,” saying Cairo could not be relied upon to negotiate a ceasefire with Israel.  
“Is Sisi a party [to a ceasefire]? Sisi is a tyrant himself,” he told reporters.
