Turkey Joins the War Campaign against the Islamic State on The Real News Network Video Interview with Edmund Ghareeb Oct 5, 2014
Scholar Edmund Ghareeb explains how the authorization for military force against IS by the Turkish parliament will affect peace negotiations with the Kurds
Edmund Ghareeb is internationally recognized expert on Iraq, Kurds, the Middle East, US media coverage of the Middle East; the new media in the Arab world; Arab Americans; ethnic and religious minorities in the Middle East. He has authored, co-authored or edited a number of books, including Split Vision: The Portrayal of Arabs in the U.S. Media, The Kurdish Question in Iraq, The Kurdish Nationalist Movement, and Histo!rical Dictionary of Iraq, Iraqi Refugees.
ANTON WORONCZUK, TRNN PRODUCER: The Turkish Parliament joined USA in its military BOMBING of ISIS(L) in Iraq and Syria. ISIS(L)’s recent military offensive against the Kurds in southern Turkey at the border with Syria, has resulted in 160,000 Syrian Kurds fleeing into Turkey over the past three weeks. The Turkish government has been widely accused of providing support or–put most generously–turning a blind eye to the border crossings of the Islamic State. The Kurds are also angry at the Turkish state for supporting rebel groups like al-Nursa Front, which, along with ISIS(L), have attacked the Syrian Kurds is several times. They are also angry at the state for not providing military support to protect Kobani.
What does the Turkish decision mean for Assad and particularly the 2.5 million Syrian Kurds who live along the border with Turkey? It is hard to believe USA allies and intelligence agencies that have been involved in arming and training Syrian rebels, including Turkey, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia were NOT aware of the military threats ISIS(L) posed. So it seems curious now why the Turkish parliament would authorize military action against ISIS(L) now.
GHAREEB: There are a number of reasons this is an important issue. The countries supporting ISIS(L) were also supporting other groups. ISIS(L) was Not as powerful as it is today. Many (USA Allies) believed that it was only a matter of weeks or months before the Assad regime would collapse. They misunderstood the situation on the ground, and underestimated the ability of the Syrian government to stand up and to continue to fight, and they underestimated the strength of ISIS. This combination of incompetence underestimated the challenges of ISIS(L) and toppling Assad. ISIS(L) had attacked minorities in Syria before they attacked minorities in Iraq. The West including NATO’s Turkey took any actions against it at that time. (NOTE: TURKEY views Kurds as enemies).
The recent action by the Parliament to join USA coalition and attack ISIS was primarily because of the speed with which ISIS was able to take over large areas of Iraq — Especially cities like Mosul + water dams + Control of the borders between Iraq and Syria and Turkey and borders between Iraq and Iran. That’s what alerted and probably frightened them into action.
WORONCZUK: An important question is Turkish state’s support for ISIS(L) — allegations of military support. ISIS(L) fighters have been given medical treatment and been allowed to cross the border in Turkey. The recent hostage release of 49 Turkish diplomats and their families in exchange for the release of ISIS(L) fighters has raised some eyebrows, to say the least.
GHAREEB: Very important issues that explains why the Turkish president and prime minister asked the parliament to approve a new law which would allow Turkish forces to respond to attacks from militias and not just ISIS(L) and to allow foreign (USA) forces to be stationed on Turkish territory to move against ISIS(L) and other radical forces within Syria and Iraq.
GHAREEB: A lot of criticisms in the last year or so (articles + information coming out) of Turkey looking the other way when foreign and Turkish fighters flowed to and from Turkey to Syria. Turkish media reported at least 10% of ISIS(L) fighters are Turks. Causing a lot of criticism of Turkey and its policies. The second thing was the smuggling of oil from Syria & Iraq to being sold in Turkey with that money from oil sales used to FUND ISIS(L) MURDER AND OVERWHELMING VIOLENCE. The Turkish president came under a lot of pressure from his European allies and USA to take a stand, so he decided to join USA coalition to fight ISIS. But Erdogan’s primary goal is to bring down the regime of Assad in Syria and USA sadly shares that goal – So he had Turkey joined USA effort to TOPPLE ASSAD.
WORONCZUK: The Kurds have been particularly critical of the Turkish state’s policy towards ISIS(L) and AQ Contractors called, the al-Nusra front, who have attacked Syrian Kurds as well as Assad. A recent ISIS(L) military offensive against Kurdish town of Kobani, whom the Turkish government won’t provide with military support. So how will this affect the PKK’s 18 month ceasefire and peace negotiations with the Turkish state?
GHAREEB: There is a great deal of mistrust between the Turkish government and the Kurds (Both Turkish Kurds, Syrian Kurds, and Iraqi Kurds) because the PKK (Kurdish Workers’ Party) fighting against Turkey since (1980s) believe Turkey has NOT done enough to close and monitor the border and to stop buying the smuggled oil — Very concerned about Turkish policies.
GHAREEB: The Kurds are also playing their own games to get Turkey to help fight ISIS(L) to help the Kurds keep control of Kobani instead of the Turkish army. Kurds don’t want a war buffer zone on the border between Syria and Turkey within Syria that would include Kobani under control of the Turkish military, ’cause they do not trust the Turkish military, so the Kurds want Turkey to focus on fighting ISIS(L) instead. The PKK leader is in jail in Turkey, negotiating for Kurds, has said that if the Kobani falls, then all peace negotiations with Turkey are over. But more importantly, a former top PKK military commander said the peace process is already over, because this new Parliamentary law allows Turkish forces to fight PKK Kurds and ISIS(L) — so-called terrorist — a massive issue for ALL Kurds making this whole issue very difficult to handle.
WORONCZUK: Is Turkey is trying to manage its response to ISIS(L) to prevent the Kurds from consolidating political and military power?
GHAREEB: There’s no doubt that Turkey’s trying to control the Kurds and prevent an independent Kurdish state or a federal Kurdish state within Turkey. Turkey is trying to position as fighting against ISIS(L), and at the same time, they also want to make sure that the Kurds in Syria do not control the border region between Turkey and Syria – a schizophrenic policy. Turkey wants to play the role of a Middle East leader, of an Islamic leader — some neo-Ottomanist ideas floating among the Turkish leadership. Therefore, Turkey wants to benefit from the Western involvement, I’m the only army around here. Kurds are in bad position for achieving a federal state either within Syria or within Turkey itself.
WORONCZUK: Turkey is a member of NATO, and has very strong ties with USA, both in terms of intelligence and very strong political ties. How much influence does USA have on Turkey’s policy towards ISIS(L) and the Kurds?
GHAREEB: Relations were very good around 2011 and 2012 at the beginning of the Arab Spring, when it looked like Turkey may emerge as a major player. Turkey aligned itself with the Muslim Brotherhoods in a number of countries, including Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, and Syria. But the Turks promised Toppling Syria would be easy (weeks or months) but were not able to deliver. As a result of that issue and Turkey’s frayed ties with Israel, some friction between USA and Turkey cooled the relationship. Right now there is a lot of pressure on Turkey to return and play a role in fighting ISIS(L), and we’re likely to see more cooperation between the United States and Turkey.
PRIOR UPDATE: VP Biden originally said, “[Erdogan] said: ‘You were right. We let too many people through.’ Now they’re trying to seal their border.”
Erdogan said the following is correct (JUST ABOUT AS BAD):
“Foreign fighters…may come to our country as tourists and cross into Syria, but no one can say that they cross in with their arms.” — Erdogan MASSIVE
VP Biden was FORCED to LIE and apologize for “any implication that Turkey or other Allies and partners in the region had intentionally supplied or facilitated the growth of ISIL or other violent extremists in Syria.”
LIES PROTECTING ISIS(L) FUNDERS SAUDI ARABIA, QATAR AND OTHER THE BIG OIL MONARCHS/DICTATORS WERE EXPOSED BY USA VP BIDEN WHEN HE VERIFIED OF SOME OF THE FUNDING FACTS — WE ALREADY KNEW.
Joe Biden: “This is a Big Fucking deal”
Speaking at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, VP Biden said allies including:
- Saudi Arabia
- United Arab Emirates
Extended unconditional financial and logistical support to Sunni (ISIL) fighters trying to oust the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad
“President Erdogan told me, ‘You were right. We let too many people through. Now we are trying to seal the border.’
— VP Biden in Hurriyet
“Our allies poured ($3+ BILLION) hundreds of millions of dollars and tens of thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against al-Assad.”
— VP Biden funding the Nusra Front and Al Qaeda.
“It took awhile for Turkey, a Sunni nation, to figure out that ISIL was a direct and immediate threat to their well-being.”
— VP Biden
“If Mr. Biden has said such a thing at Harvard, he needs to apologize to us…(Erdogan goes on to LIE) Foreign fighters never crossed into Syria from our country….They would cross into Syria from Turkey on tourist passports, but nobody can claim that they have crossed with arms.”
— Erdogan, Turkey told reporters in Ankara, the Turkish capital
“none of us knew enough about the various elements of the opposition within Syria.”
— Biden lied a bit as McCain praised them many months ago as follows:
McCAIN on CNN Jan 2014 = “Thank God for the Saudis and Prince Bandar, and for our Qatari friends” for BUILDING ISIL (ISIS) = McCAIN = Said again a month later IN Germany = McCain = AIPAC + OIL MONARCH PUPPET!

VP Biden, who told part of the truth in a speech at Harvard University — Biden claimed Erdogan had admitted allowing foreign fighters to cross Turkey’s border into Syria, leading to the rise of the Islamic State terrorist group.
President Erdogan of Turkey demanded an apology from VP Biden, despite widespread evidence to the contrary, Erdogan falsely denied that Turkey’s long, porous border had enabled thousands of militants to cross onto the Syrian and Iraqi battlefields since the Syrian civil war began in 2011.
Mounting international criticism of Turkey’s lax border controls has forced Turkey to share intelligence with NATO allies in recent months. Turkey now has a no-entry list of 6,000 names, and has deported 1,000 people last year.
On the other hand, VP Biden praised the Turkish parliamentary for authorizing cross-border operations into Syria and Iraq, and for allowing NATO and foreign forces to use Turkish territory for incursions.
ISIS(L) was holding 46 Turkish citizens hostage now released in a covert operation. So in September, Turkey agreed to join USA-led coalition against ISIS(L). But even now refuses to make a firm military commitment but Turkey PM did agree to setting up a buffer and no-fly zone inside Syria to prevent an influx of refugees, and called for training and equipment for moderate Syrian opposition forces.
