WikiLeaks Documents Reveal Sinister Relations Between Erdogan And ISIS

Tyler Durden's picture

Back in November 2015, when the world (or at least parts of it) was trying to answer one simple question: where does ISIS get its money, we first provided the answer in "Meet The Man Who Funds ISIS: Bilal Erdogan, The Son Of Turkey's President." Subsequent articles such as "ISIS Oil Trade Full Frontal: "Raqqa's Rockefellers", Bilal Erdogan, KRG Crude, And The Israel Connection" only shed more light on the illegal cash-for-oil transfer taking place between Turkey's ruling family and the Islamic State. Ultimately, the highly illegal bilateral trade (which the west had quietly averted its attention away from) faded and eventually stopped entirely following the expansion of the Russian bombing campaign which cut off the main trade routes between Turkey and Islamic State oil producers, which in some ways was good news for Turkey, as it avoided being shamed internationally for its role in supporting the terrorist organization.

That, however, changed today following today's article by the Press Project which has found WikiLeaks evidence highlighting "sinister relations between Erdogan and ISIS" and transformed yet another conspiracy theory into non-conspiratorial fact.

As author Thanos Kamilialis writes, the connection of the Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoga?s family with the oil smuggling of the “Islamic State” is revealed after Wikileaks? revealing of emails from the Turkish energy minister, and Erdogan?s son-in-law, Berat Albayrak. Albayrak?s emails seem to confirm the not-so-recent accusations, since the energy minister is appealing to be the “unofficial” owner of the oil company Powertrance which is importing oil from the Isis land in Northern Irak to Turkey.

This is the full story of the relationship between Turkey and the Islamic State:

WikiLeaks documents highlight sinister relations between Erdogan and ISIS

At the end of September 2015 a Turkish Marxist hacking organization, Red Hack, claimed that it has access to almost 20 gigabyte of data from  Albayrak's personal email accounts. Information and articles regarding the email's content began to go online, however the Turkish justice  system decided against the publication and reproduction of the emails, thus implying their authenticity. The newest accusations that the Turkish government - and, specifically,  members of Erdogan's family- has an active role in the oil smuggling from areas that are controlled by the “Islamic State”, were between the most important subjects that were temporarily released. The leaking of all the emails from the Turkish energy minister by Wikileaks seem to confirm these allegations.

The accusations against the Turkish government -and most specifically, Albayrak- became even more intense after the shooting down of the Russian aircraft by the Turkish forces on the 24th of November 2015. As well as imposing sanctions to Turkey, Russia also accused Erdogan and his family of involvement in the oil smuggling. In order to support those accusations, Russia delivered satellite images which reveal the routes of the oil from the ISIS grounds to Turkey.  A similar research was conducted by the ministry of Foreign Affairs of Norway and came to the conclusion that the oil transported from the “Islamic State's” territories to Turkey is sold in low price. Meanwhile, the American government has also mentioned the ISIS' oil ends up, through a process, in Turkey. The Turkish president vowed to resign if these allegations correspond to reality.

Albayrak's emails do indeed prove the Russian accusations, and so do the various international media features which connected him to the oil smuggling. Albayrak appears to act as the unofficial consultant of the oil company Powertrans, which by law is the only oil company allowed to import and export oil to and from Turkey. In about 32 subjected Powertrans emails which he has received, he is asked for his opinion regarding the future actions of the company and his approval in matters such as the organization chart, and the hiring and wages of new executives.

Powertrans' oil monopoly

The ownership of Powertrans is not clear. As World Policy analyzes, the equities of the company have weirdly “travelled” from Istanbul to Singapore  and from there to the Virgin Islands. The published  information suggests that the real owner of Powertrans is now Calik Holding, behind which stands Albayrak.

In spite of this fact though, the Turkish government has offered Powertrans the monopoly in oil importing and exporting, in a case which often reminds the “photographic” laws and amendments that are often met in Greece. In November 2011, the Turkish government voted for a law that bans every kind of oil transport in and outside of the country. In the same law, there was a provision of an exception if the oil transportation would serve the interests of the country. A few months later, Erdogan's government decided to give the exclusive privilege of oil commerce to Powertrans, which he expanded by law, in 2014, by giving the company the monopoly as well.

In the leaked emails published by The Press Project's official partner, Wikileaks, the connection between the turkish Energy minister , and Erdogan's son-in-law, with Calik Holding and Powertrans seems rather clear. There are about 30 emails which Albayrak exchanges with Betül Y?lmaz  -officially the human resources manager of Calik Holding. In almost every conversation between them, the subject is clearly Powertrans, while  Yilmaz is constantly asking for his approval in any company's staff change, mentioning -for example- the planning of the organization chart, the future hirings and wages. The email exchange between Albayrak and Yilmaz lasts for three years, from 2012 until 2015. In another email, dated August 9th 2015, Albayrak talks with Ekrem Kele? who used to work for Calik Holding and is now a member of the staff of Powertrans, The two men discussed the marketing strategy of the company in Northern Iraq.

Perhaps the most strange result, regarding Albayrak's relation to Powertrans, in the emails is found in a conversation of the Turkish Energy minister and his lawyer, Mustafa Dogan Inal. The two men talk ahead of a rebuttal statement regarding the relations between Albayrak and Powertrans.  Dogan Inal had written that “my client has no longer any ties to the company” and Albayrak corrects him by writing “what is that supposed to mean? I never had any ties to the company!”. The rebuttal statement was going to be published in the end of 2015, while Albayrak denied his connection to the company again in October 2016, after the Redhack attack. There are of course tens of emails which mention the company and prove the opposite. However, given that  any mentioning of Powertrans stop after the conversation with his lawyer about the rebuttal, there is a chance that Albayrak either pulled out of the company, or kept a distance from its management, under the pressure of the allegations.

Oil: Isis' treasure

Although in the past weeks the reporting of international media mention that, due to its retreat, ISIS has -partially or totally- the control of important oil wells, for more than two years oils smuggling was the basic financing of this terrorist group. In 2014, The Guardian presented a graphic with the oil transporting routes, from the ISIS to Turkey, Iran and Jordan.

In October 2015, the Financial Times revealed that the average production of the ISIS' oil was 34.000-40.000 barrels per day, which they sold for 20-45 dollars each. This meant that they had 1.5 million dollars daily income from oil, which was used to fund their fighters in military and terrorist operations.  In July 2016, the Washington Post presented satellite photos and claimed that the “Islamic State's” income from oil have decreased by almost 50% but remain high, at about 20 million dollars per month.

The route of oil from the ISIS-controlled oil wells to Turkey was revealed by satellite photos which were published by Russia in December 2015. According to Russia, the oil is transported by third routes.

  • The west route, which starts at the “capital” of the ISIS, Rakka, and goes through the camp of Azaz in the Turkish border. From there, the oil is transported -according to the Russian Defense ministry- to Reyhanli and then parts of it are channeled to the Turkish market while the rest reaches the Mediterranean via the ports of  Iskenderun and Dortyol.
  • Another central route starts from Deir Ez-zour in Syria, goes through the Al-Qamishli area and from there to the Turkish town of Batman.
  • The third route, according to the Russian ministry, runs from Eastern Syria and West Iraq to the Southeastern corner of Turkey.

The photos and documents presented by Russia and the international Media show that ISIS' oil ends up in various areas of Turkey and the only company that -based on the Turkish legislation- can realize this transportation is Powertrans. Until today, Albayrak and Erdogan refuse any relation to this company. The emails of the Turkish minister of Energy, prove the opposite.

Hi Chris!

Good Afternoon from Sweden.


Did you know that, erDOGan's family comes from 'Georigia' in the Caucasus, and that the family is very, very likely.....

((( Dönmeh Jews ))).

Are you all, ....connecting........ the dots?

btw, I pride myself in understanding the Truth & 100% bondefide facts.

erDOGan = ((( erDogan )))


What's a Dönmeh cryto-jew:

"The Dönmeh (Turkish: Dönme) were a group of crypto-Jews in the Ottoman Empire who converted publicly to Islam, but were said to have retained their beliefs.....

...The Dönmeh (Turkish: Dönme) were a group of crypto-Jews in the Ottoman Empire who converted publicly to Islam, but were said to have retained their beliefs. The movement was historically centred in Salonica.[1] The group originated during and soon after the era of Sabbatai Zevi, a 17th-century Jewish kabbalist who claimed to be the Messiah and eventually converted to Islam in order to escape punishment by the Sultan Mehmed IV. After Zevi's conversion, a number of Jews followed him into Islam and became the Dönmeh.[2] Since the 20th century, assimilated Dönmeh might have intermarried with other groups and most have assimilated into Turkish society...."

Erdogan is a Donmeh Jew.


WE FOUND IT!  The 60 Minutes  candid interview with George Soros he tried to bury.



It seems that Soros believes he was anointed by God. "I fancied myself as some kind of god ..." he once wrote. "If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control, otherwise they might get me in trouble."

When asked by Britain's Independent newspaper to elaborate on that passage, Soros said, "It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out."

Since I began to live it out. Those unfamiliar with Soros would probably dismiss the statement out of hand. But for those who have followed his career and sociopolitical endeavors, it cannot be taken quite so lightly.

Soros has proved that with the vast resources of money at his command he has the ability to make the once unthinkable acceptable. His work as a self-professed "amoral" financial speculator has left millions in poverty when their national currencies were devaluated, and he pumped so much cash into shaping former Soviet republics to his liking that he has bragged that the former Soviet empire is now the "Soros Empire."

Now he's turned his eye on the internal affairs of the United States. Today's U.S., he writes in his latest book, "The Bubble of American Supremacy," is a "threat to the world," run by a Republican Party that is the devil child of an unholy alliance between "market fundamentalists" and "religious fundamentalists." We have become a "supremacist" nation.

During a speech at Columbia University's commencement ceremonies, Soros said, "If President Bush is reelected, we must ask the question, 'What is wrong with us?' " He has written that he always "felt that modern society in general and America in particular suffer from a deficiency of values."

Bush's aggressive waging of the war on terrorism has only increased these feelings. "When President Bush says, as he does frequently, that freedom will prevail, in fact he means that America will prevail," Soros writes. Who would Soros prefer to see "prevail"? Saddam Hussein? Osama bin Laden?

Despite his reputation as an international philanthropist, Soros remains candid about his true charitable tendencies. "I am sort of a deus ex machina," Soros told the New York Times in 1994. "I am something unnatural. I'm very comfortable with my public persona because it is one I have created for myself. It represents what I like to be as distinct from what I really am. You know, in my personal capacity I'm not actually a selfless philanthropic person. I've very much self-centered."

Soros was more succinct when he explained his life philosophy to biographer Michael Kaufman. "I am kind of a nut who wants to have an impact," he said.

But the speculator's visions don't end there.

"Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad," Soros once confided on British television. "In fact, my grandfather was actually paranoid. I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it."

In his book, "Soros on Soros," he says: "I do not accept the rules imposed by others.... And in periods of regime change, the normal rules don't apply." Clearly, Soros considers himself to be someone who is able to determine when the "normal rules" should and shouldn't apply.

All those jihad vid's showing our "moderate opposition" killing Syrian tanks and Russian resuce helicopter with American tow missiles, you begin to wonder where they get those armour piercing weapons?  Looks like the Erdogans are making money on the come and the go. 

CNONC's picture

Be careful about assuming the missles are American TOWs.  The Iranians have produced a series of copies of the TOW called the "Typhoon."  Launchers and accessories look alot like TOW systems.  The M40 recoiless rifles you often see are Iranian produced as well.  The US and its allies are, of course, supplying TOWs and other advanced systems, but when watching those videos you have to be aware that use of American weapons does not necessarily imply US support.  Note that when watching video of the SAA in action, you will sometimes see one guy armed with an M16A2 with a fairly large scope.  That is the company sniper.  Hezbollah was recently filmed parading M113 APCs.  FSA has been seen operating heavily modified M60 tanks, probably from Turkey.  And don't forget, the videos you see are not necessarily properly attributed.  You may see a video that purports to show Al  Nussra in action, only to find elements of the same video in another location claiming to be of the SAA, or Peshmerga, or Iraqi militias.

It is amazing how many high powered huslters are simply ignorant about email privacy.

Just use PGP ...

Yes - PGP is very hard to use if you try to do it manually, but you could just be lazy.

1. Use Thunderbird to read/send your email (compatible with all sorts of ISP systems)

2. Add Enigmail - an addon to Thunderbird that makes encryption using PGP trivial. (tutorials for starting are plentiful)

3. Ignore hackers and whistlblowers - they really can not read your emails even if they get a copy.


Pro-tip. Leave the Subject: blank - that is never encrypted

Nice tip thanks, didn't know that about the email subject line but it makes sense. PGP is a great tool that people should use more often. Alphabet agencies are still powerless to stop PGP encrypted communications. When the crackdown on web sites inevitably happens as even the deepweb's exit nodes are now compromised, it's comforting to know that these digestible little worms can't to stop the free flow information unless they shut the whole fucking thing down.

It seems obvious to me that Obama and his masters are in on it and allows this to happen.  The Clinton syndicate  have to be in the loop  too, and probably the Soro's syndicate as well.

We all know that Obama  and the above mentioned criminals have been supporting ISIS all along, and  as far as i am concerned these people  probably are the founder of ISIS itself. Thats why Obama or any of the notorious war mongering globalists in the EU never really have gone after ISIS. It's their baby. That's why they don't want Russia fighting them or interfere. I bet my two cents on that ISIS is a NWO baby. It makes perfectly sense.


They all agreed upon that Erdogan was allowed to fund them and probably helped him to establish this network as well.  I'm just hoping and praying that more leaks will come through. The world deserves to know the full truth about this dirty game that is going on down there.
