The very least Turkey should do is deny entry to the UN Special Envoy for Syria

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu says that Turkish foreign ministry officials will meet with UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura in Ankara.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Turkish foreign ministry officials will meet with UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura in Ankara before the next rounds of Geneva and Astana intra-Syrian talks, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told reporters on Tuesday. (


A couple of weeks ago the Turkish Foreign Minister, Cavusoglu was denied landing rights by the Netherlands. Also the Minister for Family and Social Policies Fatma Betul Sayan Kaya, was prevented from entering Turkey’s diplomatic compound in Rotterdam. Recep Tayyip Erdogan reacted furious and responded by blaming the Dutch for failing to prevent the killing of 8.000 Bosnian Muslim men by Serb forces in Srebrenica in 1995. He said: “We know the Dutch and the people in Holland from the massacre of Srebrenica. We know them, how they massacred people in Srebrenica full well. We don’t need anyone to give us a lesson on civilization.”

His statement is correct however Erdogan also knows that the Dutch did not operate on their own but under the auspices of the UN. The massacre which took place was under the supervision and control of the UN! And when the Muslims were on the winning hand, the UN and the VS responded immediately and enforced the Dayton Agreement according to America’s plan.

Now the same UN sends its Special Envoy for Syria, Staffan de Mistura to Turkey to coordinate the American plan for Syria. What has happened, did something change in the meanwhile? Does Erdogan now entrust the innocent lives in Syria to the same institution that he blames for the killings in Bosnia and elsewhere in the Muslim world? Especially this Staffan de Mistura was appointed as the Special Representative for Iraq in 2007 and later as the top UN envoy to Afghanistan in 2010. His track record is clear and the role and track record of the UN is clear in misleading and deceiving the Ummah according to the desires of the US.

It seems that Erdogan is of very “good faith” in entrusting the lives, the blood and honour of Muslims in the hands of their enemies. As he works closely with the US to seduce the opposition forces to America’s plans for a secular democratic regime post-Assad and demonise the opposition forces who want Islam. Or his friend and ally Russia who recently demolished Halab and its citizens and handed over the Muslims to the Assad regime.  Or his close ally, Iran who has spilled the blood of thousands of innocent Muslims in order to keep the tyrannical regime of Assad in place. To whom did he entrust the Muslims to?

If Turkey is really concerned about the death of Bosnians and Syrians as it is stating, why is it working with its perpetrators!  Even though it is clear as the sun who the butchers are in the Syrian conflict!

If the leaders of Turkey want honour in this live and the Hereafter they should make a clear stance by not accepting any UN convoy and cut all ties with all hostile foreign states and deny its military airbases to these warmongers.
