The comments came after Israeli President Shimon Peres said Israel has a thousand reasons to be friends with Turkey, expressing his satisfaction with the resumption of relations with Ankara. Peres stated that somehow both Israel and Turkey “wanted to put an end to this misunderstanding and return to the good relations that have existed between Turkey and ourselves for many good years.”
Press TV has conducted an interview with Dr. Kevin Barrett, author and political commentator, to further discuss the issue. What follows is an approximate transcription of the interview.
Press TV: One thousand reasons for Israel and Turkey to be on friendly terms according to Shimon Peres, what are some of those reasons in your opinion?
Barrett: Well I guess the one thousand reasons for Israel and Turkey to be friends according to Shimon Peres are the one thousand Zionist agents who are planted throughout the Turkish military, many of them at very high levels.
Turkey was taken over by Zionist basically agents of international banking and freemasonry with the end of the Caliphate and Ataturk with his fascist war on Islam throughout the past decades in Turkey was the worst enemy of Islam on the planet and in that sense Turkey under Ataturk and his followers became aligned with Zionism.
But today Turkey is gradually becoming a democracy, an Islamic democracy and a vast majority of the people of Turkey have absolutely no use for Israel.
So those one thousand reasons that Peres was talking about are not actual policy reasons, they are certainly not reasons that have anything to do with what the Turkish people want. Those reasons I would say are the remaining members of the Turkish military who haven’t yet been purged due to their treasonous links with Israel and Israeli-linked organized crime networks.
Sibel Edmonds, former FBI translator here in the US has talked extensively about these Israeli-linked organized crime networks that operate in Turkey. They smuggle heroin, they were involved in planning the 9/11 attacks according to Sibel Edmonds, she is one of our biggest whistleblowers here in the USA and they have purged a number of these organized crime figures and Israeli agents from the Turkish military already.
I believe there are well over a dozen Turkish high level military officers serving life sentences in prison for plotting to carry out 9/11 style false flag terrorist attacks in Turkey to overthrow their democratic government and install a fascist military regime in crackdown and descent.
Press TV: Let me interrupt you there, many are saying and also as admitted by the Israeli and Turkish side the reason for the recent rapprochement between Israel as well as Turkey is for the sake of Syria in manufacturing what is taking place there to their advantage.
Do you agree with that because many are saying this is basically a declaration of war against Syria?
Barrett: Well yes. Israel wants Turkey to help the Zionists destroy Syria in retaliation for Syria’s help for Hezbollah and Hamas in the recent military victories over Israel.
So that’s the kind of a bottom line here is that Israel is using all of its influence in all of this various countries that it largely owns, Turkey being one of them or semi owns it, the USA being another, Saudi Arabia being the third, all of these countries are under the sway of the international Zionist and they are trying to break up [Syria] as part of the Oded Yinon plan to smash all of the potential enemies of Israel in the region into little tiny statelets along ethnic and sectarian lines.
So that is the real reason of course that Israel wants to make friends with Turkey to get Turkey fully on board with the Israeli plan to destroy Syria.
Press TV: And also right now we have just seen Israeli forces open fire on Syrian territory from the occupied Golan Heights, is this the beginning of an intervention that we are going to see as a result of this rapprochement between Israel and Turkey?
Barrett: Well it will be very interesting if Israel is the outside party that intervenes most blatantly in Syria and that would show all of the supposedly Muslim friends of the supposed resistance in Syria which is really mostly mercenaries and terrorists from armed and paid for by other countries that the real force behind this destabilization of Syria is Israel.
So that would be a strategic mistake on part of the Israelis and their allies in the destabilization of Syria for Israel to directly invade Syria or get even more involved, obviously involved than it already is.
