On December 29, 2013, professor Vali Reza Nasr wrote an Op-Ed, titled ‘Iran, Turkey’s New ally?‘ at the Jew York Times. In the article, Nasr tries to convince the brainwashed Americans that Turkey’s ruling party AKP headed by prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan is being further isolated internationally as result of the on-going domestic mass anti-government protests by the Islamist (led by US-based Fethullah Gulen) and secularists (led by Israel and the Jewish Lobby).
Erdogan has blamed certain foreign countries for magnifying the graft scandal case that has rocked Turkey recently.
To understand Vali Nasr’s hidden agenda, readers have to know his background. He was born in Tehran on December 20, 1960. He studied in England and moved to the United States after the 1979 Islamic Revolution. He is projected as an “authority on Iran and the Islamic World” – because he is a member of powerful Jewish advocacy groups like the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and a senior Fellow at US-Israeli millionaire Haim Saban’s Brookings Institute. Nasr also served as special adviser to late Richard Holbrooke (Jewish), Barack Obama’s special representative to Pakistan and Afghanistan.
“For over a decade, Turkey cultivated ties with its Arab neighbors. Turkish diplomats and businessmen were ubiquitous across the region, opening borders and trade routes, promoting business and brokering political deals. Turkey’s spectacular economic success and its stable Muslim democracy were hailed as a model for the whole region,” says Nasr.
However, Nasr believes that since Turkey’s “Israel Problem”; supporting Palestinian cause and former Muslim Brotherhood rule in Egypt – even though united with Israel against Syrian president Bashar Assad – has erroded Turkey’s influence over its Sunni neighbors.
“Disagreements over Syria and, more so, over Egypt have alienated the Arab world, placing a wedge between Turkey and Saudi Arabia in particular. The Turkish model for Muslim democracy is, after all, a milder version of the former Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt — which, with Saudi help, the Egyptian military and secularists have done away with,” says Nasr.
Nasr, after claiming that AKP dumped by the Arab Sunni leaders and Turkish Islamists, desperately, needs a regional ally which could help Erdogan to regain its lost popularity – drops his Zionist mask. He claims that an alliance between Islamist AKP and “moderate” Rouhani regime will “erode” Tehran’s alliance with Islamic resistance (Hizbullah, Hamas and Islamic Jihad) groups fighting the Zionist entity. And this eventually, would destroy Iranian influence in the region – leaving Israel as the sole regional superpower.
“With American influence in the region in decline, and with Israel and the Persian Gulf monarchies finding themselves united in their opposition to Iran, Turkey could find itself playing a central role thanks to its links with Iran. A new Turkish-Iranian partnership could be a welcome development for the West: Turkey’s economic ties could boost Iran’s commercial development, which would help consolidate the political position of the moderates in Tehran. The real gains would come if a closer relationship with Turkey began to erode the alliance of militias and radical religious forces on which Iran has relied to project its influence,” says Vali Nasr.
Erdogan, who is being projected as an “Islamist” by the Jewish-controlled mainstream media – is a “closet Zionist”, according to Erdogan’s mentor and Turkey’s first Islamist prime minister, professor Necmettin Erbakan (died 2011).
