“We will certainly continue to debate the reverberations of the July 15 coup attempt and its legacy for the country. But one overarching message is clear: Turkish people will no longer tolerate their democratic rights and popular will to be undermined and hijacked by cliques and terror groups from within and outside the state.”
“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 July 15 coup attempt has been a turning point in Turkish society, uniting people on all fronts.
Two years have passed since the July 15 military coup attempt. But what exactly happened on that night?
It is crucial to give prominence to the founding aspects of the July 15 spirit to achieve a more democratic and powerful Turkey.
What was the role of Turkey’s Directorate of Religious Affairs during the July 15 coup attempt?
FETO is not only a threat for Turkey but one for all countries that still allow for the group to operate within their borders.
The state of emergency in Turkey was necessary for the fight against FETO and now it could be permanently uplifted on July 18 depending on the decision made by the Parliament.
There was never innocence within FETO and the members of the criminal cult only paid respect to their leader – Fetullah Gulen – who they believed to be the “messiah.”
The July 15 coup attempt in Turkey was the first in which the Turkish state and its people stood against illegitimate military personnel.
