Liberation of Istanbul

After the Turkish troops saved Izmir from enemy occupation on September 9, 1922, they turned north, to the Dardanelles Strait. As the Turkish and British armies engaged each other between September 15 and 23, discussions raged on in the British Parliament. Some wanted peace, while others pressed on to continue fighting. Finally, on September 23, it was decided that East Thrace and Istanbul be given to the Turks and right after that, on October 11, 1922, the Armistice of Mudanya, which officially ended the Ottoman Empire and certified the end of the Turkish War of Independence, was signed. Thus, the 100-year-old plan of the British deep state on Anatolia came to a complete end by means of the Anatolian independence movement led by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. The deep state held Prime Minister Lloyd George responsible for this failure and forced him to step down. George, from that point on, would never be influential again in British politics.

British troops did retreat from Istanbul, but kept their military presence intact in Mosul, Iraq, Arabia and Kuwait. The British deep state didn’t abandon its efforts of producing an Israel and Palestine issue. It never stopped interfering in Suez and Egypt, Syria or Jordan, never gave up on provoking the Kurds. The system the British deep state built in the Middle East after destroying the Ottoman Empire brought nothing but conflict and death to Muslims. In the 20th century, more than 100 coups and 30 civil wars took place in the Middle East and North Africa, and as a result, more than 15 million Muslims lost their lives. Assassinations, uprisings, massacres, chemical weapons and bloody wars where Muslims martyred other Muslims became part of daily life. The onset of the 21st century has been even bloodier.

  The Importance of Istanbul

Similar incidents happened not only in the Middle East, but also in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan. As the members of the deep state enjoyed themselves in their duchies, and their country estates in Northern islands, Muslim blood soaked vast lands. Strangely enough, the British deep state didn’t win those wars using its own soldiers. Muslims were forced to fight other Muslims.

Going back to the conflict atmosphere that the British deep state created in the Middle East, Kurds were deceived with promises of having their own state, as a result of which, they were heavily suppressed and oppressed by the Iraqi and Syrian governments. Shias were provoked against their Sunni neighbors and vice versa. Conservatives, patriots, liberals and leftists were pitted against each other. While the Kuwait occupation was underway, the agents of the British deep state were telling Saddam Hussein that Kuwait belonged to him and that he needed to claim what belonged to him. As Hafiz al-Assad was massacring people in Hama, his so-called advisors told him that if he didn’t kill them, they would kill him. Arab armies, before collectively launching an attack against Israel, got the green light from the British diplomats. The British deep state of course knew that Arab armies would be defeated by Israel. Egypt, nationalizing the Suez Canal, supposedly for its own interests, only helped the British and no one else.

One point should be noted here: it wouldn’t be realistic to put the entire blame on the British deep state for everything that goes wrong in the Middle East. There is no doubt that the British deep state schemes are ruthless and sinister. However, falling prey to all the plots of the deep state is actually one of the biggest mistakes and failures of some of the Muslims in the Islamic community. Some Muslim societies that forgot to trust God and follow the Qur’an, that treated superstitions as religion, that got used to viewing themselves as inferior and helpless after believing in the ‘superior race’ lies and deceptions produced by the British deep state, suffered such heavy defeat as a result. Believing in the ‘superior race’ nonsense, they became vulnerable to the deep state propaganda. For this reason, they paid a heavy price for this mistake and are still paying it. If they continue to stay away from the Qur’an and distance themselves from their fellow Muslims, they will continue to be pawns in the plots of the deep state. It is crucial that this very real danger is recognized and that the Muslim community comes together around Islam –only around Islam based on the Qur’an. It is crucial that the Islamic community joins forces to lead the world in terms of quality, love, peace and justice.

  Media Censorship during the British Occupation

Those who are irreligious are the friends and protectors of one another. If you do not act in this way [be friends and protectors of one another] there will be turmoil in the land and great corruption. (Qur’an, 8:73)
