AN INTERVIEW WITH PROF. HÜSAMETTIN ARSLAN ABOUT 15 JULY BY BENGÜL GÜNGÖRMEZ(22.03.2017)

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...


WILL AFGHANISTAN BECOME THE NEXT PROXY WAR?(13.03.2017)

Will Afghanistan Become The Next Proxy War?

Asst. Prof. Dr. Yusuf Çınar from the Department of International Relations in Bitlis Eren University interprets what further Russian involvement in Afghanistan of late could mean with regards to regional politics. The materialisation of the September 11 attacks in between the then on-going post-Cold War American global hegemony discussions once again put the spotlight back on Afghanistan. Afghanistan has turned into a matter of "prestige" during the War on Terror initiated by the George W. Bush administration. In other words, the "Enduring Freedom Operation" was the first indication that the USA was becoming a global hegemon. The US’ involvement in Afghanistan was unrivalled and dif...


OBSERVING HUMAN RIGHTS IN THE MIDDLE EAST(13.02.2017)

Observing Human Rights in the Middle East

It becomes evident when traveling in war zones and isolated areas that the most vulnerable in such places are women and young children.In January, on a train bound from Mashhad, Iran, to Tabriz, I met a woman who looked to be in her 30s. Her name was Amir Nedai.Amir and I were sharing a 4-bed passenger cubicle with another couple from Iran; on a ride that would take 24 hours until our destination. Unlike Amir’s short stature, her husband was quite tall. He must not have liked the idea that his wife would be in the same cubicle with a foreign man (he and Amir were placed in different sections), because when he came inside our room, he did not even greet me.It felt ...


EAST TURKISTAN, THE FORGOTTEN COUNTRY(10.02.2017)

East Turkistan, The Forgotten Country

There exist the Pamir Mountains and Karakum Desert in the south and the Altay Mountains in the north of East Turkistan constituting the east area of Turkistan which means the land where Turkish live. East Turkistan had been founded in the Middle Asia and become the centre of Turkish states and khanates through its long history. This Turkish homeland, which became a centre of The Scythians between 8 and 3rd centuries B.C., Huns between 300 B.C. and 93 A.C., Gokturk Empire between 522 and 744, Uyghur Empire between 744 and 840, The Karakhanid Empire between 751 and 870, is shaping an important place in Turkish history. There was a period of peace when very important cul...


DOES PKK USE DRUG ADDICTS TO CONDUCT SUICIDE ATTACKS?(19.01.2017)

Does PKK Use Drug Addicts To Conduct Suicide Attacks?

For the illegal Marxist organisations, a suicide attack is a last effort to stand up for themselves. Especially as a result of the successful operations in Eastern and South-eastern Anatolia against it, PKK has changed its strategy and started to go for suicide attacks by employing its urban settlements. In the previous periods there was a symbolical dimension for terrorist organisations which made suicide attacks meaningful for them, however today they are mainly employed as the fastest way of getting results.Tamil Tigers of Sri Lanka were the first organisation in the world to initiate suicide attacks. The Marxist, ethnic separatist organisation has frequently employed suic...
