Turkish President's Stunning Outburst: The French Are Behind The Charlie Hebdo Massacre; Mossad Blamed

Tyler Durden's picture

It was less than 48 hours ago when Turkey’s prime minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, joined millions marching in Paris to pay tribute to the 17 people killed by ISIS-supporting extremists. Then, almost the moment he got back, things changed, and as the FT politely paraphrases what transpired, the "country’s president struck a much more confrontational tone." That's one way of putting it. Another is that the former PM and current president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, of NATO-member Turkey did the unthinkable: accused the west, and French citizens in particular, of staging the Charlie Hebdo murder in order to blame Muslims, even as the mayor of Ankara said "Mossad is definitely behind such incidents . . . it is boosting enmity towards Islam."

"The duplicity of the west is obvious,” Recep Tayyip Erdogan said at a press conference on Monday evening. “As Muslims we have never sided with terror or massacres: racism, hate speech, Islamophobia are behind these massacres.”

His punchline: "The culprits are clear: French citizens undertook this massacre and Muslims were blamed for it,” he added.

The FT is confused: "Although political leaders in Turkey have repeatedly condemned the attacks on the Charlie Hebdo magazine, a Jewish supermarket and a policewoman, a parallel narrative has emerged in the country, with conspiracy theorists blaming the murders on foreign intelligence agencies rather than radical Islamists."

It's not just the French who were said to be behind the attack: so is Mossad:

Melih Gokcek, mayor of Ankara for the ruling AK party, said on Monday that “Mossad [the Israeli intelligence service] is definitely behind such incidents . . . it is boosting enmity towards Islam.” Mr Gokcek linked the attacks to French moves towards recognising Palestine.


Ali Sahin, a member of Turkey’s parliament and foreign affairs spokesman for the AK party, last week set out eight reasons why he suspected the killings were staged so that “the attack will be blamed on Muslims and Islam”.

But back to Erdogan:

In his own remarks on Monday, Mr Erdogan added: “Games are being played throughout the Islamic world”. He expressed bewilderment that French intelligence services had not followed the culprits more effectively.

The FT is further confused that Turkey is not the only place which has dared to offer conspiratorial theories: Russia is too.

In Russia, some pro-Kremlin commentators sought to link the killings to geopolitical machinations by the US. 


Komsomolskaya Pravda, one of Russia’s leading tabloids, ran the headline: “Did the Americans stage the terror attack in Paris?” and posted a series of interviews on its website that presented various reasons why Washington might have organised the attack. 


In one interview, Alexander Zhilin, head of the pro-Kremlin Moscow Centre for the Study of Applied Problems, claimed the terror attack was US retribution against President François Hollande for a January 6 radio interview in which Mr Hollande urged the EU to lift sanctions against Russia.  Washington used the attacks as “a quick fix for consolidating” US and EU geopolitical interests in Ukraine, Mr Zhilin claimed.

The FT is most stunned that in Russia the events in Charlie Hebdo are being equated to the 9/11 tragedy:

For the last 10 years, so-called Islamist terrorism has been under the control of one of the world’s leading intelligence agencies,” Alexei Martynov, director of the International Institute for New States, a think-tank, told pro-Kremlin internet outlet LifeNews. “I am sure that some American supervisors are responsible for the terror attacks in Paris, or in any case the Islamists who carried them out.”

Whatever could have given the Russian this idea...

And mankind marches towards the cliff of self destruction.  Like the comment below says, it doesn't matter who done it, and in some cases the truth doesn't matter at all because it is probably more complex than people realize. What matters is knowing who to trust and who not to trust, and I don't know that either so I pretty much don't trust any of them.

OK,  Which one of you is really  the president of Turkey!?

My last comment on all of this.  The whole thing is obviously fake if you look at photos and videos of the event.  The cop wasn't shot AT ALL (look it up on liveleak), it looks like a blank, and it was aimed at the ground.  Jim Stone has a lot of good analysis of that video. 

The Heebdo office had one single bullet hole in a window.  The inside of the office had no blood at first, then there was a photo of some fake-looking blood poured on the floor under a chair, but zero blood anywhere else, including on the chair or on the desk.

The "shootout" at a Jewish Deli is just badly scripted drama, start to finish.

So yes, this looks like yet another staged event where probably nobody died (except for the patsies).  Yes, cia/mossad do this shit all the time and they did it again because they needed more fuel for their "war on terra."

Stop believing in "alternative" media like this site or AJ, Dice and all the other "big" sites. They all work against us.  Look at the actual images and videos and draw your own conclusions.

Serb TV station was legitimate target, says Blair


Tony Blair, in Washington for Nato's 50th anniversary summit, insisted that bombing television stations was 'entirely justified'


'This is a war, this is a serious conflict, untold horrors are being done. The propaganda machine is prolonging the war and it's a legitimate target.'

Erdogan himself was caught proposing a false flag attack against Syria not so long ago:

So, Erdogan blames Mossad, then blames French citizens for the attack, then blames Islamophobia?


weburke's picture

Erdogan knows he is dead if he opposes his bosses, so he was probably told to say this.** Lets see him end his cooperation with israel.** Not likely. He was probably given this role to give him street cred. Hardly matters as there are plenty of islam radicals to be blamed for the coming "islamic anger at the west" to get us into whatever disasters the elites want. Well, angry muslims are wanted, mission accomplished.

lol..."The culprits are clear: French citizens undertook this massacre and Muslims were blamed for it,”

Yeah, "French citizens" who just happened to be...Muslim.

What a fucking idiot.



To my down voting tribe of illiterates, have I placed my index finger on something here? What is this Turkish mayor saying then, is he talking about "white skinned" French citizens or is he saying Muslims cannot be French citizens? What did he just expose then, his superior intellect or his own bigotry?

All the attackers were French AND Muslim...dumbasses.

Apparently this article has attracted a whole shitload of sharia-lovers, who are apparently happy to be given 1000 lashes for saying something islam deems an insult to the pig-boy prophet.

Oh yeah man, its latest thing.

Its like your normal everyday "progressive" university campus, where group-think is completely normal and something to be admired, promoted and aspire to, so you can be "in the clique".

I mean if the Mossad can get one million French Jews to move to the West Bank, Golan Heights, and some more parts of Syria, its a win win.

thebigunit's picture

The false flag was itself a false flag.

So, it really was true. 

Except, that the narrative which the second false flag tricked people into believing was really a false flag from the beginning, so none of it was ever true.

So, go back to your homes.

Aha! The old duo inverted false flag-false flag trick. I knew it! I'm off to Raqqa on some Christian missionary work now.

There is a decent chance this is some kind of manipulated event. How can we be sure that the people who committed the crimes (who were masked) are the same ones that were killed later? The murderers were very well trained in tactical movement, marksmanship, and small-unit tactics. How did a couple of humps who were never in the military get that kind of training? The fact that IDs were left behind is an obvious, obvious tell of a frame-up. Not saying it happened that way but it sure is following a shopworn script.

I am not a fan of Islam, it is a violent and deranged political ideology, but the Koran's violent rhetoric makes it a great smokescreen for imposters to hide behind.

Hey folks, this is a POLITICIAN talking.  All he's doing is playing to his constituents.  Like every politician, everywhere, every day.

He probably called Nutty yahoo and Obongo and told them what he was going to say, so they'd know not to take it seriously.  They just smiled because they do the same thing, EVERY FUCKING SPEECH

This turkey is on his way to being a psychopath and is alredy a power hungry tyrant who uses Islam as his vehicle.  He should be taken out by the Turkish army.  You know -- to dinner or cocktails or...whatever

they don't care, possibly because they don't know.  try to find anything about those eight reasons why ali sahin thinks this was a false flag.  google finds essentially nothing: http://www.google.com/search?q=ali%20sahin%20eight%20reasons&ie=utf-8&oe...

And the day before 9/11 - some of the hijackers were drinking and gambling and they left the Koran behind because they were devout Muslims on a suicide mission who hate us for our freedom.
