Yes, we do have a ‘perpetuity’ issue. It was an issue in the past, it will continue to be one in the future This has been the case ever since we considered Anatolia our homeland We shaped history for a millennium based on the fight for perpetuity Looking at July 15 alone will be enough

Is there a “perpetuity” problem in Turkey? Yes, there is.

Does it exist today? Yes it does. Was there one in the past? Yes there was. Will there be one in the future? Yes there will.

Is there a perpetuity problem not only in Turkey but the entire region? Yes, there is. The issue of perpetuity has been the highest priority topic in every era of our history, from Afghanistan to the Red Sea coasts, from Basra and Mesopotamia to the depths of Anatolia, from the Balkans to the Caucasus.

This country’s political history gained character over the “perpetuity” issue. This nation’s entire fight throughout the centuries, after embracing Anatolia as its homeland, has taken shape over the perpetuity issue.

Why is Anatolia under siege?

Why hasn’t this changed for centuries?

The perpetuity issue is even the basis of our victories and our expansion through four continents. The more intense, the rougher this country’s history of struggling, the real and serious the perpetuity issue is.

We have always had a perpetuity problem, a perpetuity issue in every era of historical breaking points, such as the collapse of the Seljuks, the weakening of the Ottoman Empire, until World War I.

The perpetuity issue, the perpetuity idea has been determining in each of our collapse and re-rising periods.

Because Anatolia is surrounded by those who want to avenge Anatolia.This has been the case for centuries. It was the case yesterday, and it is the case today.

Anatolia's wings…

Defending the 'last fortress'…

We established defense shields in all wings of Anatolia to break this siege. We expanded these shields so much so that we made preparations and put up great struggles to defend Anatolia and the center of our geography from Vienna to Basra, from the Red Sea to North Africa, to the coasts of the Caspian.

No need to go back too far in history. Was there not a perpetuity issue during World War I and after it? The millions that flocked from the Balkans to Anatolia, the 'last fortress,' the masses that flocked constantly throughout the century, from the Caucasus to Anatolia, when our geography's wings broke, the idea to defend the "last fortress" was shaped over a perpetuity issue. If you like, ask them what the fear of perpetuity means; seek the answer in their memories and requiems.

They wanted to push us outside history a century ago.

Do they not want the same now?

Yes, World War I was a "European Civil War." But it ended with the Ottoman Empire's destruction. All of Europe shared a region. The Ottoman Empire, Islam, and Turkey would be excluded from history and the region.

This was a destruction operation. And that is exactly what happened. A major destruction reached every corner of our region. Was there no perpetuity problem back then?

Was there no perpetuity matter when the invasion reached the depths of Anatolia, the "last fortress"? Was there no perpetuity problem at the time the fight for liberty was launched during the War of Independence? Was the fight of a nation that lost the region to avoid losing its homeland too not about perpetuity?

Wasn't July 15 a perpetuity issue?

Let us look at a closer time in history:

Was July 15, 2016 not a perpetuity matter? When a terrorist organization under the control of the U.S., Israel, and all of Europe was activated, when this nation's parliament was bombed, when its people were targeted, was there no perpetuity issue for those laying under tanks?

What was going to happen? Was there going to be a better Turkey? Was there going to be a more powerful Turkey? The country was going to be turned in to Syria, with blood flowing through the streets, and dozens of organizations lashing today. July 15 was a destruction operation. It was an attempt to exclude us from history, to stop the re-rise in the region, and divide for this reason. It was never a coup attempt.

Neither that front nor that fight have changed.

It is the same showdown

Let us think about three years on from July 15, 2016: Was this not a perpetuity issue? If not, what is a perpetuity issue? Do we not have the right to question why those who ranted about the July 15 attack softened up when it came to the perpetuity issue?

Perpetuity is not something that occurs at times of collapse only. Re-rise periods are also shaped over perpetuity. That is how those fights are put up too. Turkey started a brand new rising history. We saw that all those who were against us during the period of collapse a century ago, are gathered on the same front one again. Those from among the groups that joined them from within, a century ago, have joined the operation again from within.

Those who had their hopes tied on July 15:

Who is gathering you on that front?

As the genetic that has been making history since the Seljuks becomes centralized, those trying to collapse this history are gathering in the outer circle. While those who have made these lands their homeland for a millennium are joining their forces with the idea of perpetuity, the inheritors of those who have been left outside for centuries afre gathered again in the opposite front - and without any concern for political identity. Because we see how those do not question being on the same front with those who wage open war against Turkey, with the U.S., and terrorist organizations weaken the perpetuity issue.

And now, even though they seem to be opponents, they had all their hopes set on July 15. If they are setting sail to new hopes now, then there really is a perpetuity issue.

We are on this territory for another millennium

and there is always going to be a perpetuity issue

We are on these lands for another millennium. We are going to continue the fight for another millennium with the idea, the resistance of perpetuity. We know that those who have been striving to end our presence in Anatolia for centuries are going to attack again for centuries with the same aim. Just take a look at Andalusia and you will understand.

Turkey is being sieged from all four corners today with the aim to stop it. This does not have anything to do with us; it is their plan. There is a perpetuity matter in the rising period, victories period, as well as during the power-building period.

Those gathered against those strengthening the center:

This will not work with arrogant statements

This is too critical to be an internal opposition discourse. This is something that can be perceived by those who can understand Turkey's march, the region's situation, and global power shifts. You cannot make history through arrogant statements, articles, comfortable views. History is made through great struggles. It is made by paying a price.

History is made by laying claim to the political genetic, by strengthening the backbone and state power domain. Those who collapse the center, those who weaken the social solidarity have had no contribution to what we have done in this region from the Seljuks to date. They have only had a place in the history of destruction and treachery.

Don't weaken the perpetuity issue.

Look at July 15, that alone will be enough

The perpetuity issue was weakened. Efforts were made to keep this fact away from our minds. Efforts were made to destroy a nation's history, present and future imagination through cheap statements, everyday arguments. This is mental blackout.

Forget about the past and remember July 15 only, and then look at the future. This nation has always been in a state of alert. It will be the same. And this is the reason.
