Questioning US predatory order and Zarrab

Aristotle talks about wild hunter communities 2,400 years ago. Communities that seize, destroy and get by on spoils – unproductive freeloaders, who assume this as they wish with destruction and tyranny. This perfectly defines Western imperialism. It is the modern form of the wild hunter community tradition. American imperialism is implementing the most recent form of this in the Middle East. It is pillaging our fortunes. It is seizing the ummah’s (Muslim community) oil wealth. It is the U.S. that is distributing all this to the world. It is the U.S. that decides who will benefit from it and how much. Saudi Arabia and many other oil-rich countries are the guardians of this act of plundering. Hence, the money they think belong to themselves are in Western banks. Saudi alone has as much as $700 million in U.S. banks. Now, the fight between the wild hunters is over who is going to get the $3 trillion, the U.S. or the U.K. They are shamelessly creating a law for their predatory order. This law is becoming legitimized with imperialist hunting. It is being done in accordance with law. This is a wild hunting law. What fundamentally underlies the Middle East’s struggle with dictators, wars and upheavals today is this predatory order deemed fit by this imperialism. Because plundering, while giving certain families and elite circles the chance to live in luxury, forces peoples to poverty. Even Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait was one of the foolish ways of creating difficulty for this predatory order. A look at al-Qaeda and Daesh’s discourses will show tones of the hatred toward this predatory order. It is a reaction to the predatory order through terrorism and revolt.

The predatory order distributes the ummah’s fortunes to the world. It just does not allow the ummah to freely take advantage of this. European countries buy oil from Iran; Japan buys it, China buys it, Italy buys it and, as a matter of fact, Greece even buys it – so much more than what Turkey buys. They just want to punish Turkey. All foreigners are waiting in line to plunder. As for us, we cannot even take advantage of our own assets. How paradoxical! It is given no room in its own geography. When we want to take advantage of it, they try to punish us through a law system they established themselves.

Turkey is standing up to this order that is seizing the ummah’s fortune. The ummah’s fortune belongs to the ummah. It wants to show this to the ummah. As an ummah, as a region, this is Turkey’s most natural right. It is going to take advantage of its own fortune and protect it too. This is what the Ottomans did. This is what Turkey attempted to do. A huge crime! Questioning the imperialist predatory order and giving the ummah the feeling to lay claim to its own right is an unforgivable crime. This is what the Reza Zarrab case is entirely about; to punish Turkey’s pursuit, to make it pay the price of reminding the ummah of its wealth, to make it pay for opposing imperialist pillaging, to make it regret challenging the Western order.

The U.S. is the biggest imperialist on our lands. Whoever opposes its order encounters the greatest of punishments. This is why the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) and its Syrian affiliate, the Democratic Union Party (PYD) is being supported. They are provided with truckloads of weapons and made to fight against us. The Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETÖ) is used against us. The July 15, 2016 coup was planned against us at the United States Central Command (CENTCOM). All their press and media outlets, primarily the New York Times, have started to spread fierce propaganda against us. Saying no to the predatory U.S. order was the biggest of crimes. They would give Turkey a tough time for doing this. They would turn life into hell for the leader who did this. They would suffocate the community that thought this with terrorism. They would bring to line the state cadres that did this through a coup. None of them worked. The latest Zarrab incident is not going to work either. Their worldly power, wild aggressiveness, unethical legal order are in their last days.

By presenting the Zarrab case to the world, the U.S. wants to give a lesson to those who oppose imperialism. But all this is going to backlash. The world and particularly the Middle East are going to better see their predatory order. They are going to feel it closer. Their masks are going to fall. The Muslim world is going to make a shift from revolts to awakening. They are going to make a shift from destructive hope and pursue constructive hope. Turkey is a constructive hope. This is why Turkey is trying to be condemned.
