Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım went to an indoor rally and they tried to stop him with myriad excuses. When I watched the indoor rally in Dusseldorf, I had listened to what the team that did the organization said. They explained that they had faced unimaginable obstacles. It was surprising.
And now, they did not allow Justice Minister Bekir Bozdağ and Economy Minister Nihat Zeybekci's program. Why would the April 16 constitutional referendum disturb Germany, why would they be worried about our citizens living there casting their votes? What fear is this?
Turkey's enemy, PKK and FETÖ's friend
Yet, they provide covert support to the Kurdistan Workers' Party's (PKK) live broadcasts, gatherings and all kinds of events and open wide spaces for them. They harbor the Fetullah Terrorist Organization's (FETÖ) coup-plotting crew, the criminals of the July 15 massacre, and take them under their protection. They protect those who are sought for the crime of terrorism and the crime of murder and do not hand them over. They protect and embrace anybody who stands against Turkey and they use them as a trump card.
This shameful prevention is not a simple reaction. It is not merely the action of a municipal administration, it is a central reflex. It is a sign that Germany is trying to settle scores with Turkey and it is the indication that it is aligned with anti-Turkey elements in every area.
Deep political plan, unchanging alliance
It is not limited to justifications concerning the referendum or domestic politics alone. It is not a matter that can be discussed based on isolated examples. This is the trace of deep politics. They are the reflections of totalitarian politics related to their plans to influence Turkey's domestic politics as well as the interventions aimed at stopping its great walk through multinational interventions, and the new map works in our region.
We come across the same policy and politics in every development that concerns our country and every situation that concerns our internal integrity and independence. Germany's support for terrorism and U.S. soldiers protecting the PKK-affiliated Democratic Union Party (PYD) in Syria is the product of this major plan.
If you look carefully, you will see that the same reflex in all the interventions over the last four years was aimed at stirring chaos in our country. It is the same alliance that stands against our every struggle aimed at eliminating threats. You will notice that in every incident, the resistance groups on the inside and former privileged power circles are in solidarity with these countries.
Stopping Erdoğan, getting the country to surrender
There is a front that is gathered on the inside to stop Erdoğan and the Justice and Development Party (AK Party) and one gathered on the outside to stop Turkey.
It was this joint front that attempted to topple the government through terrorism during the Gezi Park incidents. So much so that the terrorist groups on our streets were controlled by German intelligence staff. They tried to take over Ankara, raid the Prime Ministry and start an identity war inside the country through street terrorism.
On Dec. 17 and Dec. 25, 2013, we saw the same solidarity and joint front again. The media gave the utmost support from outside to the coup attempt on the inside. European newspapers were reeking in anti-Erdoğan and anti-Turkey sentiments. The articles, caricatures and media campaigns were extremely repugnant and controlled by central powers.
And then we saw a global alliance standing against us on July 15, 2016. They backed the coup and civil war plan that was launched through FETÖ. They were so sure they would succeed that they were shocked to see their plan end in fiasco. None of them, no capital stood by democracy or the people's will. As a matter of fact, they did not even make any statements on July 16 and onward because they were not expecting such a result and had no statement prepared for this outcome. They had no idea what to say for days.
They started an operation through the referendum
They are now carrying out an operation through the referendum. Similar to the Gezi Park events, the Dec. 17 and Dec. 25 intervention and the July 15 invasion attempt, this, too, is being controlled from the same centers. It is the same powers again in the front – a front controlled by states, a front in which terrorist organizations are used and certain political circles are activated.
The transitivity between the attitude on the outside and the destructive front on the inside is interesting. The “no” campaign's point of focus is this alliance. Whether it may be a political situation or a democratic right, the solidarity between those who will vote “yes” and those who will vote “no” offers us striking information.
Those who say 'no' are waiting for a new intervention
While those who prioritize Turkey, those who think along lines of the home country and those who make all kinds of sacrifices for our country's great walk to reach its ultimate goal, are becoming a side, pushing aside the disputes and disagreements among themselves while they give priority to the country's future rather than their political identities. The rapport among those who say “no” gives an extremely dangerous impression.
Political circles joining terrorist organizations and those trying to stop Turkey from the outside on the same axis, trying to make the referendum meaningless, are signaling other ways, and thinking that the “no” vote will not win is concerning.
They know Turkey will transform into an extraordinary power
Solidarity on a global scale has emerged to sabotage the “yes” vote and prevent the move to a presidential system. This solidarity is controlled not from the inside, but from the outside. These circles, which are not afraid to openly intervene in the referendum, are aware of how much the area of intervention in Turkey will shrink after the switch to the presidential system takes place.
They know very well that their options to stop Turkey will diminish, that keeping the country under control is only a dream now, that the country has largely managed to make the systemic change on the inside and will turn into an extraordinary power and that its decision-making mechanisms will speed up.
They are aware that it is going to sit at the table in a very strong position for negotiations from EU relations to partnerships with the U.S., security operations in northern Syria and negotiations with Russia and other central powers of the world.
Same front re-established ahead of the referendum
Trying to weaken Turkey's hand from both within and without at a time when the world is entering a rough climate and all countries are actually preparing for it, is the biggest operation aimed against us. The Ottomans were subjected to similar operations before World War I as well.
But back then, there was a collapsing empire, and today there is a country that is on the rise. They will not succeed, we know, but as a country that has experienced interventions like July 15, we are not so blind that we cannot see the same front gathering again ahead of the referendum.
There is very little time left, they are going to try everything
There is one-and-a-half months left to pass the critical threshold. Hence, we may witness surprising interventions, sabotage and covert operations within this short time. At a time the U.S. is in efforts to stop Turkey through Manbij and Germany cannot even tolerate a campaign speech, everybody must see that the referendum campaign is the new area of operation.
We know that Turkey is going to take these big steps and no power or joint front can stop it. However, it is still our duty to be careful and alert and be aware of preparations for a new operation.
