Erdoğan’s Speech at ‘COMCEC’

Erdoğan made statements at the 34th COMCEC meeting which was held in Istanbul on 28.11.2018. Erdoğan said in his speech, “This fact reveals itself openly. Although the war ended 100 years ago, its debris still couldn’t be removed from our geography. While those who brought the war to the Middle East with imperialistic desires live in peace, we pay the price for it. While they clinch their togetherness by various cooperations, we still split up.”

“I see a world condemned between the two lips of a country at the UN Security Council. Whatsoever one of them say, everyone has to do it. You can’t do anything. I witnessed in person that they don’t think of the children in Somalia who die of hunger as much as they think of the number of whales at the poles. The UN system needs to be reformed. Now we have to determine a comprehensive policy by taking the incompetence and desperation of the existing international structure into account. We have to take matters into our own hands.”


Although agreeing with Erdoğan’s reproofs at the COMCEC meeting, we all witness that they don’t behave as such in practice. For this kind of insincere expressions of rulers cause the Muslims have faulty understandings.

Those who caused the Ottoman Khilafah State to enter the WWI and split up, were undoubtedly no one other than the Committee of Union and Progress junta, a puppet of the West. The Khilafah, which is the political leadership of all Muslims, was abolished by the imperialist masters’ plans and traitors inside. But they weren’t satisfied with this. In substitution for the abolished Khilafah, a Republic was established, which is a regime belonging to the West. Democratic laic laws, the Latin alphabet and Europe’s life style have been imposed on the Muslim Turkish people, as they’ve been brainwashed with democracy, laicism, patriotism, nationalism and self-seekingness.

Shattered, invaded Islamic lands and Muslim peoples, have seen the century of oppression from the abolishment of the Khilafah until today. In every region, they’ve been through another tragedy, shed another tear. Nevertheless, the rulers in Muslim lands and Erdoğan in particular, have referred Muslims’ problems to the United Nations at every turn. They’ve expected from the disbelievers to find solutions for the problems of Muslims.

But weren’t those brutal invaders the source of the problems in our geography?

Here, I would like to clarify some points regarding the position of rulers:

– The WWI which was subject to the speech, was the ending up of crusades —led by the West against Islam and Muslims— in favor of the Disbelievers. In order to celebrate the defeat of the Ottoman Khilafah and its disintegration by Sykes-Picot, the disbeliever West organized ceremonies in Paris on the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI in November. Either Erdoğan participated in these celebrations.

– Although Erdoğan knew the causes and outcomes of WWI, he didn’t abstain from being a part of that fierce mob.

– The one who said in recent years “we need “Israel” in the region” regarding the Jewish entity, a poisonous dagger stabbed in the heart of the Holy land Palestine, Al-Aqsa Mosque, was no one other than Erdoğan. Tons of food aid was shipped as if Palestine’s problem is about hunger. Whereas Palestine needs brave rulers for being freed from occupation, not provisions. It needs glorious armies who seek the satisfaction of Allah, that will save the occupied Jerusalem, Al-Aqsa Mosque and could say “stop!” to the oppressor. If Erdoğan takes care of Palestine and the Palestinian case, he —as the protector of Muslims— immediately has to move the armies against the disbelievers.

– During the Syrian revolution ongoing for eight years despite all the difficult conditions, the Turkish rulers carried out many operations on behalf of realizing the plans of US in the region. Together with bloody-minded US, Russia and Iran, they came to the same table in Geneva, Astana, Sochi, Ankara and Baghdad. They signed agreements for handing over Syrian lands to the Assad regime. Territories under control of the Opponents, fell one by one into the hands of the regime after each signature. While Muslims were savagely being murdered in their lands and while hundreds of thousands of people were drowning in deep waters in the Mediterranean Sea and Aegean during migration, what did the rulers do besides watching?

The disbeliever West wasn’t alone when setting the Middle East on fire for “a drop of blood and a drop of oil”. Beside them, there were always Muslim-looking local blackguards who didn’t fail in serving their masters, magicians who enthralled the Muslim people.

Don’t they see that the western colonists use them for self-interest and crumple and throw them into the dustbin of history like a napkin? If they only get advice!

If Erdoğan is sincere, he has to turn his face to Islam, instead of referring the problems of Muslims to the UN he has to solve them with Islam. Instead of expecting the help from the West, he needs to devote it to Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala. He needs to stay away from the apostolate of democracy, hypocrisy and deceiving the ummah; he should be merciful to the Muslims and harsh to the Disbelievers.

We have to take matters into our own hands! But not through the sword of democracy, we need to realize it with the rules of Islam. And this is possible by the Khilafah Rashidah (rightly guided Caliphate) to be established on the method of the Prophethood. Because Khilafah has the power of establishing the Islamic brotherhood and unity of Muslims, as well as the power of making the disbeliever experience abasement and the Ummah glory.

Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala says:

ذَٰلِكَ ٱلْكِتَٰبُ لَا رَيْبَ ۛ فِيهِ ۛ هُدًى لِّلْمُتَّقِينَ

“This Book has no doubt in it – a guidance for the God-fearing.”

[Sura Al-Baqara: 2]
