Turkey and the New Ottoman Empire

Today I am featuring excerpts from an article in Israel Today by David Lazarus: Underground Pastor Reveals: Turkey Becoming Another IranIn exclusive interview, Turkish Christian leader says, “We have learned that democracy is not our savior” (This is from a Members Only section, but is a great example of the value of becoming a member.) Notice the rising opposition to Israel and the God of Israel.

Turkey is tilting towards the East, and its growing relationship with China and Russia bode a major increase in the minefield of enemy warmongers along Israel’s northern border. In the meantime, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey’s strong-arm president, has undermined NATO by installing Russian S-400 anti-aircraft batteries pointed towards Israel and Europe, and is ramping up his support for terrorist groups like Hamas and Hezbollah while allowing other jihadist groups like ISIS to launch terror attacks unhindered in the region.

Mustafa, who cannot reveal his real name for fear of violent retribution against his wife and three children … explained that just having contact with someone from Israel is now considered an act of treason as Erdogan continues to push the once secular democracy towards a regional caliphate, or Islamic State. “The government is constantly trying to frame local believers as spies, which is evidence that they deserved to die,” he said.

“Somehow Turkey is still seen as a moderate Muslim country by the US and Europe,” Mustafa said. “But Turkey failed to join the Western alliance because it is in the country’s DNA to return to the Islamic State dreams of the Ottoman Empire.”

Turning the Hagia Sofia, one of the world’s most distinguished historical churches, into an Islamic mosque is indicative of what’s happening in Turkey today. “Erdogan sees himself as ‘Conqueror of Christianity’ and restorer of Islam,” Mustafa revealed. “He wants to rebuild a new Ottoman Empire and declare himself Caliph (supreme leader of the Islamic State). The Hagia Sofia was an ace card he’s been holding and now he needs it to fill the ballot boxes. The entire country is moving towards radical Islam.”

I hope you will consider becoming a member of Israel Today, published in Israel by Messianic believers in Yeshua as Son of God and Messiah of Israel.

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship Yehovah in the holy mount at Jerusalem.” Isaiah 27:13

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
