An Interview with Prof. Hüsamettin Arslan About 15 July by Bengül Güngörmez

Bengül Güngörmez: On the night of July 15, 2016 Turkey witnessed outrageous incidents that will haunt people for years to come. A coup with a foreign reach was attempted, planned and conducted by FETÖ militants, and led by Fethullah Gülen. From the government to the opposition people from various segments of the society put up a great fight against the attempt. Some of them made history. We have martyrs and a great number of injured. Kids, women and elders were murdered by militants dressed in soldier uniforms. Our parliament was bombed the first time in its history. In a way, all the dropped bombs were dropped against the democracy. They bombarded our democracy. This cou...


TURKEY-IRAN RELATIONS FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF JULY 15(19.10.2016)

Turkey-Iran Relations From the Perspective of July 15

In line with their geopolitical locations, historical backgrounds and strategic aims, Iran and Turkey have been two historically important countries in the region as two neighbour countries with different systems of government. These two medium-sized countries with a legacy of imperialism have become targets for countries outside of the region due their capability to influence regional developments. In these days where we experience change of borders and regimes in the Middle East, especially with regards to the issues of regional stability and security affairs, Iran and Turkey have been forced into cooperation despite the regional rivalry between the two countries. In this w...

The July 15 Coup Attempt: Western Alliance, Geopolitics and New Pursuits

July 15, 2016 saw the opening of a new black page for Turkey with regards to her history of democracy. Turkey witnessed a coup attempt by a group of soldiers within the Turkish Armed Forces that are members of the Gülenist Terror Organization (FETÖ) and call themselves the "Peace at Home Council" during the dates of July 15-16 2016. In the official website of the Turkish Armed Forces and TRT a memorandum broadcasted which stated that the army seized control of the country, and martial law and a curfew was declared.After President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan called people resist against the coup, the attempt failed. This article approaches the coup attempt and its outcome within the cont...


PREVIOUS COUP MANIFESTS AND READING BETWEEN THE LINES (27.07.2016)

Previous Coup Manifests and Reading between the Lines

On 15th of July in 2016 an attempt of putsch was desired but it was prevented mainly by the resistance of the public. On the other hand, president Erdoğan’s call to streets was enthusiastically accepted by every part of the community can’t be ignored. All these happenings let the coup plotters down, and demoralized to see that they don’t have the public support behind them. We can easily say that physiological breakdown came afore the physical breakdown for the coup plotters. The 15th July’s shameful image of tanks on the streets turned to sublime images of people over the tanks against the coup. There are lots of things to speak and do about this unfortunate event but what I wo...


TERRORIST ATTACK IN PARIS: CAN IT BE AN EFFORT TO CONSTITUTE A BASIS FOR ISLAMOPHOBIA?(5.02.2015)

Terrorist Attack in Paris: Can it be an Effort to Constitute a Basis for Islamophobia?

I condemn the attack to the magazine – which gave an edge to anger after publishing libelous caricatures of Hz. Muhammad in the past- in Paris yesterday. Both timing and target is extremely meaningful, a deplorable event which lead us to think, “I wonder who has a benefit of this action?” As it is stressed by Prof. Dr. Ramazan Gozen, Professor of International Relations Department of Marmara University, at TRT News Channel, the issue is complex and multifaceted. It is possible to analyze the issue in four topics. 1) a reaction to the opposite attitude of France towards ISIS, 2) ISIS problem of Europe, 3) Muslim minority problem of Europe, and the most importan...
