Businessman Güzel Wrote for Washington Times: How U.S.-Turkey Relations Grow Stronger

By Murat Güzel - In the aftermath of the NATO Summit in Brussels, I have reflected on the importance of strong trans-Atlantic bonds and how this critical alliance has paved the way for economic growth which has benefitted both sides of the Atlantic. In an unstable world, we need strong trade alliances like the U.S.-Turkey one. We need a robust NATO as well. This week also marks the tragic anniversary of the darkest chapter in Turkey’s recent history, the July 15 failed coup. I am not a politician or an expert on international relations. I am a first-generation Turkish American who has built a multinational business. I am a “commercial” diplomat.

US Experts Raise Concern Over FETO Threat in America

Washington, DC - AA - American experts on Wednesday warned of the threat posed by the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) in the country. "I believe that the Gulen movement in the U.S. presents a unique and unusual security threat," said Mark Hall, producer, screenwriter and director of the documentary, "Killing Ed", which probed the financial practices of FETO-linked charter schools in the U.S. Speaking at the panel, "July 15 Coup attempt: Two Years Later", organized by the Turkish Heritage Organization (THO), a Washington-based think tank, Hall said FETO threatens the U.S. mainly by bringing in unqualified employees from other countries, especially from Turkey, as well as through money laundering and forgery of documents, deceiving local and federal authorities.

A Response from Turkish-American Activist to Guardian

Dear Ms. Viner: I read "Turkey’s Attack on Syrian Kurds Could Overturn the Entire Region" (Jan. 27, 2018). You may recall our prior letters calling out the Guardian on its deep anti-Turkish bias, in particular articles legitimizing the hatred-inducing and unproven (even by the British, via the abortive 1919-21 Malta Tribunal probe) "Armenian genocide" charge.

Why is Russia Helping Turkey in Afrin?

* By Leonid Issaev - On January 20, Turkey launched an air and ground offensive, which it called "Olive Branch", against the Kurdish-controlled enclave of Afrin in northern Syria. As the offensive progressed rapidly, it became obvious that such an ambitious operation could not have been possible without Russia's explicit approval. First of all, the operation required the Turkish Air Force to enter Syria's airspace - something Ankara could not have done without consulting Russia. Furthermore, before rechannelling Turkish-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) forces to Afrin, Ankara needed assurances from Russia that Bashar al-Assad would not take advantage of the situation and attempt to seize Turkish-controlled positions in the province of Idlib.
