Turkish politics has since 2003 been based on an uneasy power-sharing and indeed heated rivalry been the Muslim Brotherhood controlled AKP regime and the Sabbatean (“Dönmeh”) controlled so-called Derin Devlet (Turkish for ‘Deep State’).
NATO membership is sacred for the Derin Devlet which will not allow the AKP to lead Turkey out of NATO. Russia has already drawn the ire of the United States by purchasing the S-400 missile defense system from Russia which led the US to impose sanctions on Turkey. Now the Erdogan government is planning unprecedented defense cooperation with Russia on a range of projects involving fighter aircrafts, submarines, aircraft engines and rocket launch platforms. Although the NATO charter has no actual provision for expelling a member state from the alliance does it appear that Erdogan is deliberately trying to get Turkey expelled from the NATO alliance.
The fact that Erdogan was able to conclude these deals with the Russian government illustrates the relative weakness of the Derin Devlet nowadays which has been progressively losing the power struggle with the Crypto-Islamist AKP. Much is at stake for NATO countries whose intelligence services should closely align with the Derin Devlet in its domestic power struggle with the AKP. Much is indeed at stake as Turkey will become a second Iran if the AKP prevails and takes full control over Turkey as Turkey will no doubt commence its own nuclear weapons program. Furthermore will there be a bloodbath against the Sabbatean community and most likely a genocide against Median Jewry in general, indeed a Second Holocaust against the Jewish nation. This is a matter of genocide prevention and it would be rather difficult, not to say impossible for Israel to stop it considering its limited military capabilities.
This is the time to learn the lessons from the Holocaust and make every effort and timely so to prevent the Erdogan regime from taking full control over Turkey. The Derin Devlet needs every help it can get in its domestic intelligence warfare against Muslim Brotherhood intelligence in Turkey. It may even be that the Derin Devlet is cash-strapped and in need of foreign aid and that this hampers its struggle with the Turkish Muslim Brotherhood intelligence. Unspecified NATO countries should generously make funding available to the Derin Devlet as of need.
Yet the fact that Erdogan still does not have the power to withdraw Turkey from NATO shows the considerable power of the Sabbatean controlled Derin Devlet in Turkey. Nevertheless, the threat of genocide remains and this must be a priority of the international community in ensuring that Turkish Median Jewry (Alawites, Alevis, Alians, Bektashis, Sabbateans and Yezidis) is ultimately permitted to emigrate to Israel.
