Threat of coup d'etat in Turkey

ENGLISH (28.04.2007)- The fascist army intervened in the Presidency elections held in the National Assembly by a threatening declaration last night, at 11.15 pm. The declaration was directed against the right of the parliament to elect Abdullah Gul as President, claiming that the “principal question in the Presidential elections process has been secularism”. The declaration came just after the first round of the Presidential elections, while the opposition party CHP had brought the voting to the Constitutional Court, claiming that the number of attended deputies is not sufficient to make the voting. If the Court takes a decision accordingly, this will lead to the abondoning of the Presidential elections and will begin a process of early elections.

In the declaration, the following phrases took part:

“In the last days, the principal question in the Presidential election process has been focused on secularism. This situation is being watched by the Turkish Armed Forces with anxiousness. It shouldn't be forgotten that, the Turkish Armed Forces are a side in these discussions and is the staunch defender of secularism. Furthermore, the Turkish Armed Forces are against these discussions and the negative comments, and will display their position and attitudes openly and strictly, when necessary. Noone should have any doubt about this. In short, anyone who opposes the understanding of the founder of our Republic, Great Leader Ataturk; 'Happy is the one who calls himself a Turk', is and will be an enemy of the Republic of Turkey. The Turkish Armed Forces is determined to fulfill the open duties given to them by the law to protect these qualities, and their devotion and faith to this determination is certain.”

The declaration of the Armed Forces is a military memorandum, and a threat of military coup d'etat. When translated into the language of Turkish politics, this memorandum is an intervention to both the Assembly and the Constitutional Court. The army, by this memorandum declared that they viewed the election of Abdullah Gul for Presidency as a “regime problem”, and won't let it, even this election is done on a constitutional basis.

Also they threatened the Kurdish national movement and the democratic sectors who question the official ideology, with the referance to the phrase “Happy is the one who calls himself a Turk”, since broad sectors of the population (millions of people) are calling themselves as “Kurds” and claiming national democratic rights.

Democratic rights are under threat

The excuse for the memorandum, “secularism”, is merely a demagogy. It was the army, during the coup d'etat of 1980, who brought compulsory religion lessons to the education system, it was them who supported the islamic reactionary forces to grow, it was them to found mosques in all the Alevi villages, it was them who accepted Turkish-Islam synthesis as the state ideology. Religious Affairs Presidency (Diyanet İşleri Başkanlığı) is the state institution of religion, which has a huge budget and to which all the mosques and all the imams are subject to. Turkey is not a secular country, since the state is fused with religion.

The generals are fooling the people for gaining mass support for their semi-military fascist regime. They are angry because their share of state power is diminishing, since the Presidency had traditionally been a tool helping the military control the regime.

The fascist memorandum gave a vital importance to the struggle against military coup d'etat and military intervention to politics in Turkey. What is at danger is not secularism, but democratic rights (which are already at a very low level.) The army wants to freeze the constitutional rights of the institutions and govern the country on its own.

We also call all the peoples of the world to protest against this fascist memorandum and to stand near the peoples of Turkey who want freedom and democracy, no more military intervention.

Published: Saturday April 28, 2007

The European Union warned the Turkish army on Saturday not to interfere in the country's democratic process amid a dispute over the ruling party's Islamist-rooted candidate to be Turkey's next president.

"It is important that the military leaves the remit of democracy to the democratically elected government," EU Enlargement Commissioner, Ollie Rehn, said in a statement.

I wonder if the Turkish Military is the defender of the new modern world as envisaged a little while back by ZAN !!!
For as long as the myth reverberates amongst poorly educated nationalist baboons that one of theirs is worth a thousand others the military will be in control to ensure that the myth continues.

Bollocks miltiades my man, quit quoting irrelevant sayings that were used centuries ago to make your lame point, its as bullshit as "good Turks is a dead Turk" and you know it, let me also remind you that Erdogan wasn't exactly elected in a very democratic fashion either, if the army is going to stop that piece of shit and his likes from fucking over this country and selling it to the Arabs then they are more then welcome to intervene with any "democratic" process they want, you as the most vicious attacker of the Muslim worlds who insistingly defends the US and disgustingly tries to justify the killings of poor uneducated Muslims in 100s of thousands while calling them animals, is now sitting there babbling on about the army trying to stop these religious morons from ruling the country? Where the hell is your consistency miltiades, come on man you are like 60 or something...:roll:

Did you not see the millions of people who protested against this shit in Ankara? They will be doing it again in Istanbul this weekend which i will personally attend to, i really REALLY hope that Turkey will not be represented by this prick and his covered wife and that no one with a covered head will EVER be able to set foot into Cankaya!

The Turkish Military IS the defender of modern Turkey and Kemalism, and I'm VERY glad that they are!

This is disgusting interference by the Turkish military.

They should keep their noses out of politics. And this is supposed to be a country looking to join the EU...

Even at the risk of a coup, the Turkish politicians should tell these military high and mighty leaders to p1ss off. Lets see how far they are willing to push things in this, Turkeys EU era.
