President Erdogan is visiting Africa for the first time since his electoral victory in June.
The Israeli government’s controversial nation-state decision last week will only pave the way for more conflicts, crises and instability in the region.
“The Western world’s expectations of help and partnership from Turkey on important matters is in vain; it must first understand and respect Turkey’s struggle against terrorism and provide intelligence, logistical and psychological support for its ally against common enemies.”
It’s important that Turkey does not give up on the fight against FETO in order for the country to succeed with its governmental progress.
“The Western world did not side with Turkey’s people and democracy following the coup. What’s more, it used the administration’s fight against terror organizations – FETO foremost among them – to criticize Turkey.”
The ongoing rift between the U.S. and the EU countries in NATO hints at the slow collapse of the Western alliance.
Turkey’s fight against FETO is not over, but gets even deeper as the full extent of the terrorist group’s secretive structure gradually emerges.
Western media needs to direct itself toward correct news and information sources about Turkey. However, in order to do so, it needs to give up its ideological approach to Turkey and Erdogan. If it does not do this, it will continue to lose its reputation while also causing anti-Western sentiment to rise in Turkey.
The significance of Sunday’s election for President Erdogan was clear: it represented a hurdle that he needed to overcome in order to gain political power through democratic means.
Too busy trying to make Erdogan fail, the Western media are running in contradiction with Turkey’s sociology.
