  • A Visit to the al-Quds al-Sharif that is Full of Spirituality

    The second mosque of the earth, the first qibla of Muslims and the third holy mosque in virtue, the starting point of the Ascension of the Prophet (PBUH), the Al- Aqsa Mosque, where the Prophet (PBUH) led prayers as an imam, is the home of the sacred places of the heavenly religions and in which tens of thousands of prophets have been buried  It was our chance to visit the Holy al-Quds, which was under the rule of Muslims for 12 centuries, the last four centuries were under Ottoman administration. 

    We spent four days full of spirituality.

    After a two-hour flight from Istanbul, we landed at Tel Aviv Airport with a 160-person Tour Organization with 23 distinguished ASDER members. We reached the holy Quds after an hour-long land trip.  We prayed our Friday prayer at the Al-Aqsa mosque, also known as Haram Al-Sharif, it has the Dome of the Rock, surrounded by walls and an area of one hundred and forty thousand square meters, which can be reached from 17 different gates, the Qibla Mosque, with a capacity of 5000 people, the entire open area of the Mervan Mosque, despite of heavy rain, it was full of people.

    On our first and second day, we visited the sites in Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa mosque, which are considered sacred to the Muslims, Christians, and Jews; on the third day, the tombs of the Prophets and their holy places in the cities of Jericho, Hebron, and Bethlehem; on the fourth day, before returning by plane, we visited Jaffa to see the traces of the Ottoman in the city.

    It was a late visit for me. If I had not been encouraged and had not received an offer, who knows how late I would have been. I am grateful to those who caused it.

    This visit had two aspects for me. The first is the spiritual aspect that fills our hearts, and the second is political aspect which reminds us of our responsibility towards Muslims.

    Al-Quds Al-Sharif is a holy city for as long as human history.

    In the projection the Dome of the Rock covered with gold in the octagonal shape, in the sculpted solid rock that gives the mosque its name, praying in the sacred place, which was the starting point of the Ascension of the Prophet, was named as The Foundation Stone because it stands in space one meter above the ground ( was later filled); During this worship, when we have in mind that through this door opening to the divine throne, our Prophet (PBUH) reached the presence of our God, the Angelic descended on the earth through this door, when people died, their souls rose to the sky from this door, and the worship in these places is 500 times more virtuous than the prayers in others excluding the Kaaba and Masjid an-Nabawi. Human beings break away from worldly objects and taking on an ethereal pattern.

    Running around to the Al-Aqsa mosque, performing these prayers with the same excitement, together with the congregation, in the morning and nighttime during our busy tour trips gives our soul and body a unique peace and pleasure.

    This visit should be a blessing from God.

    The visit of each of the Al-Buraq Wall (the Wall of the Wailing among the Jews) located in the western wall of the Al-Aqsa Mosque, which the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, tied Al-Buraq who brought him from Makkah Al-Mukarramah to the Al-Aqsa Mosque on the Night of the Miraj And the mosque of our master Omar, which was built later in the place on which Umar prayed, located above the Church of the Holy Sepulcher adjacent to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, after he came to Jerusalem in order to receive the city immediately after its conquest And the mausoleums of the prophet companions, Salman al-Farisi and Rabia al-Adawiya, may God be pleased with them, and the mausoleum of David, peace be upon him, in the Mount of Olives, the place which Christians consider to be the place where our Master Jesus, peace be upon him, rose to heaven forty days after the crucifixion incident, which gives one a view of both the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Noble Jerusalem from the top ; The grave of Moses, peace be upon him, which is located near the city of Jericho, which is located an hour north of Jerusalem, and the Islamic College, which is located next to the mausoleum and the Lot lake (the Dead Sea) four hundred meters below the sea level over the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah where the people of Lot, peace be upon him, were demolished, lived. The tombs of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph, peace be upon them, are located at Abraham Campus College in Hebron, 50 minutes south of Jerusalem, and the sanctuary of the Prophet Yunus, peace be upon him, situated in the town of Helhlul, carries the wave of spirituality to the stage of writing.

    While wandering around our visiting places, Christians and Jews rush to their places of worship following their beliefs in their religious clothes; Christians are in the magnificent Resurrection Church, in the church where our Virgin Mary and her parents are in glory, and the church which is known as the birthplace of Jesus Christ; Seeing the Jews worshiping in the mausoleums of David and the Wailing Wall following their beliefs and dread, I wish these people were Muslims with this faith and then one understands better the interest of Christians and Jews in Jerusalem, which is also said to be the place where the trial equilibrium will be established on the Day of Judgment.

    I want to conclude my feelings and thoughts about the spiritual aspect of the visit, with the belief that being unable to visit this holy city and places will create a spiritual deficiency for Muslims.

    Sad Jerusalem and the Oppressed Palestinians:

    The first spiritual bond established between Islam and Jerusalem was being the first qibla of Muslims, was strengthened by the Prophet (PBUH) Isra incident and this holy City In the time of Omar; in 636, the Muslims conquered it.

    The city that came under Seljuk rule in 1071,

    Occupied by the Crusaders in 1099, after 88 years of crusading domination,

    It was taken back by Saladin AL AYOUBI in 1187,

    Between 1233:1244 after being under French rule for 11 years, recaptured under the control of the Ayyubids.

    Al-Quds Al-Sharif;

    After the Mongol invasion in 1243,

    Taken by the Mamluks in 1259,

    In 1517, with the conquest of Egypt by Yavuz Sultan Selim, it entered the Ottoman Administration with Palestine.

    After 400 years of Ottoman rule,

    On December 9, 1917, it was captured by the British, who established a mandate in Palestine, made Jerusalem the capital of Palestine; The British withdraw from Palestine in 1948 after Israel founded its occupied State.

     From this date, Arab-Israeli conflicts started;

    Israel, which invaded all of Palestine in the 1967 War, is now dominating Al Quds Al-Sharif and Al-Aqsa mosque.

    The State of Palestine is also totally under the rule of Israel.

    It is not recognized internationally as an independent state.

    It has no land, sea, or air contact with the outside world.

    The Israel Army and security forces monitor the entrances and exits available at the Palestinian settlements’ units.

    Palestinian settlements turned into cantons, are cut off from each other, surrounded by thick and high walls, contradicting being kept under control and totally passivated.

    In the Palestinian Territory, intercity highways controlled with high steel watchtowers mounted at intersections and crucial points, armed with cameras and electronic devices.  In these towers, soldiers are awaiting watch.

    Again, in the periphery of the Palestinian Territories, new “Jewish Settlements” have been built as modern sites, surrounded by high wire fences, and at the same time serving as bases for security forces.

    The entrance and exit of the Palestinian Settlement Areas, and the entrance and exit to the holy places, such as Al- Aqsa mosque and tomb of the patriarchs, are controlled by the Israeli Soldiers' and Security Forces' guard booths and outposts.

    Young Palestinians are not permitted to routinely conduct five daily prayers in the Al-Aqsa mosque, cameras spot those who do not follow the ban, and a two-month ban on accessing the Al-Aqsa mosque becomes implemented. Al-Aqsa mosque, whose maintenance and repair are at the mercy of Israel, is a sad and abandoned temple.

    Under the pretext of searching for the ruins and the place of the Temple of Solomon, the bottom of Al- Aqsa mosque is carved out the opening corridors, which will be the cause for the temple to collapse, and the most valuable concern of Muslims, with Al-Quds, is tried to be severed.

    Palestinians residing in the cities of Jerusalem, Hebron, and the temple mount and tomb of the patriarchs will not be admitted to these places again if they leave these places without permission.

    In Al Quds Al-Sharif, Palestinian homes around Al-Aqsa mosque, the pressure is exerted to sell to Israelis, the owners of these properties forced to live on the border of hunger, opportunities to start a business or work are restricted, and they are pressured to find a job outside of Jerusalem, the residence paper of those who have worked out of Jerusalem for more than two years will cancel.

    Palestinian houses around the Al-Aqsa mosque that need repairs are not given a repair license and left for demolition and those who have repairs without permission given heavy penalties.

    A complete Israeli occupation prevails in the Palestinian territories, and the Palestinians living like in an open prison.

    The oppressed Palestinians are living in their land as strangers, abandoned and innocent.

    Since witnessing this scene on-site and experiencing it one-on-one, the responsibility that we feel on our shoulders for these people and the holy places here has grown even further.

    Muslim Nations should reach out to these poor children of Islam and these sad Shrines as soon as possible.

    What can be done urgently:

    Every Muslim with financial means should visit Al-Quds Al-Sharif and Palestine and see everything in its place.

    Therefore, tour organizers should get benefit from organizations. At the Israeli customs and checkpoints, there are no difficulties for those who come as tourists. There is no problem beyond the controls required by security. Our guarantor, saying that in Israel, "the Turkish Association" of eighty thousand members were welcomed with flowers by President and his delegation at Tel Aviv airport.  Travel is risk-free, and there is no need to worry about security.

    Muslim countries should fulfill the material needs of the Palestinians.

    All needs of both the Gaza Region and the autonomous Palestinian Territory should be determined annually by the budget technique, in terms of current public expenditures and investment payments; The determined amount of need should be collected in a fund to be formed and met continuously and regularly by the Muslim countries. Thus, it must prevent Palestine from needing the imperialist countries that use Israel as a tool and stop them from selling their homes and leaving them to Palestine, and the psychological balance between the parties must be achieved by developing the economic and social conditions.

    Palestine must be recognized as an independent country.

    In this way, by maintaining relations with the outside world from the air, land, and sea, the climate should be primed for political support against the occupation.

    Long Term Requires:

    The organizations that we will list below are indispensable not only to Palestine but also to the Islamic world.  Maybe we will look at it with imagination today. But the mission of the dream is a mature project, widespread recognition and debate after the project, and practice after the discourse.  I hope our dreams and wishes will be implemented as soon as possible.

    If there is a "Parliamentary Assembly” in which the Muslim nations, are treated equally, and this Assembly works on an ongoing basis,

    If the "Executive Committee” should be formed and named by this Assembly, if this executive committee tried to solve the problems of Islamic Countries within the framework of the decisions of the Parliamentary Assembly,

    The annual budgets of the Parliamentary Assembly and the Executive Committee are financed by its member states.

    With the arrangement of the Executive Committee, if the Ministers of Muslim Countries in every field could meet periodically, discuss the common issues of Muslim Nations, and determine mutual policies in each ministry field, especially if common foreign policy principles could be determined and implemented,

    If "Muslim Countries Court of Justice” could be established, which would operate under the rules of international laws and found political solutions for the problems both between the forming countries and between other countries and member countries,

    If a "Defense and Defense Industry Cooperation” organization can be organized between member countries,

    If a "Rapid Intervention Force”could be formed with the participation of the member countries, which the "Executive Committee" could direct and manage, and this military power could be used where necessary, for example, against Israel in the Palestinian territories,

    "Human Rights Court”under the control of "Parliamentary Assembly" to prevent human rights violations of member countries;

    If a "Criminal Court”could be established and made functional, which could judge the rulers for crimes they would commit against the ruled,

    If a permanent army could be formed for Palestine in the Palestinian territories and friendly member territories with the contributions of the member states, if "Economic Cooperation” and "Aid Funds” could be established for member countries,

    An atmosphere of peace and tranquility in the world can be created first among Islamic countries and then in the whole world.

    he main point that will minimize the problems in the Islamic countries together with Palestine is that it should be our shared concern to understand the formations that can make the Islamic Union a possibility as soon as possible. February 4, 2012

  • ANATOLIAN EAGLE AIR EXERCISE CRISIS

    Israel directed a harsh response against the announcement of the postponement of the International Section of the "Anatolian Eagle 2009/3" exercises, which was scheduled to take place from 10 to 23 October 2009, and the presence of scenes related to the massacre and inhuman acts carried out by the Israeli soldiers in Palestine, in the series "Separation" published by TRT 1.

  • Davos Outflow Is the Beginning of a New Process

    In Davos, from the mouth of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, Turkey has announced that it is the guardian of the oppressed and that it is prepared to protect the law of the Islamic World.
    The attitude we miss was exhibited in Davos.
    The reaction given was worthy of the world-leader countries.

    The comments of the silly people, cannot show wrong this historic event.
    Our external representatives should have more personality.
    Our people must first, understand the strength and importance of Turkey.
    Israel received the reaction it had not seen in the world from Prime Minister Mr.Tayyip Erdoğan.
    Considerable determination and weight have been put as much as activating the military force against Israel.
    Israel will not be able to act recklessly anymore.
    It will not be able to continue its carnages.
    Turkey's warnings will be taken into consideration more.
    Turkey's determination has been explained in a manner that it understands.

  • Israel is Enemy of Humanity

    The humanitarian aid convoy heading to Gaza, which had 600 people and 6 ships from 50 countries, was attacked from land and air by the Israeli Armed Forces at 04:30 on 31 May 2010, while it was sailing in the international waters of the Mediterranean.

    According to the information received, as of this hour (31 May at 15:00), there are 19 martyrs and 60 injured. I wish the mercy of Allah for the martyrs of humanitarian aid and urgent recovery to the wounded.

    Attacking humanitarian aid ships with weapons means fighting the people of the countries sending the ship, and especially the Turkish people.

    Attacking the civilian, unarmed, and charitable people with guns has once again revealed the real face of ISRAEL. It is an Enemy of Humanity.

    This bloody assault will be the beginning of the end of Israel.

    The initiative is a murder that could be carried out by fears of arms on their hands that do not fit in international law, human values, and do not have a state-owned consciousness.

    Political, military, social, and economic reactions required by the Islamic world and all free world countries, notably Turkey, should be shown.

    The realities revealed by assault are:

    • Israel is preparing a firearm response plan against similar incidents and stinging it into the application area without hesitation.
    • The free world does not take measures to deter Israel's determination.
    • Israel only understands using power. The attempt to deter it should be armed intervention with the same ruthlessness.
    • Meanwhile, it should be noted that armed pressure on the Naval Forces barracks in Skenderun, where 7 of our soldiers were killed and seven of our soldiers were wounded, could be retaliating Israel to the humanitarian convoy for support of Turkish Civil Society organizations. Therefore, any Israeli support for the terrorist organization PKK must be disclosed and be reciprocated with the same.
    • Turkey must be put in the power and position to carry land, air, and sea power and operate across borders and strategic distances to enable effective and independent action in the region.
    • While the attempt to bring humanitarian aid to Palestine is paramount support, it remains a rather passive attempt against an Israel that disregards humanitarian values. The main issue should be either to engage with the International military force or to ensure that Palestine can deal with Israel and get to the military force that will deter them from the attacks. In addition, such relief initiatives should be protected by international military force.

    While six and a half billion people remained insensitive, this movement of 600 idealist and humanitarian values took action against the inhumane blockade in Gaza, in order to this movement would not be fruitless;

    • Humanitarian aid ships should not be left to Israel, they should definitely be delivered to Gaza and reach the target of the initiative.
    • The volunteers in the aid convoy must be transported safely to their home countries.
    • The humanitarian aid line to Gaza from the sea must be established and operated.

    Turkey must take responsibility in this emerging crisis. The Islamic World and the international community should be mobilizing by Turkey. May 31, 2010

  • ISRAEL MUST BE FORCED INTO DEFENSE WAR

    PALESTINE-2

     

    Everything has a point of satisfaction. The point of satisfaction in wars, where victory turns into defeat, it is the last point at which attack, or defense can be sustained. Leaders and competent commanders plan a ceasefire and peace before they reach this point.

    The Jewish population in Israel is about four million people. The male population of the military age can be up to 700 thousand. The number of the military staff in the army is about 500 thousand. If all his reserves are obliged to summon them to the task, no one is left at home and at work. It cannot continue this situation for a long time.

    The war strategy it has implemented so far is to rapidly seize its targets by attacking with the armored units in its dominant form and in its intense air support, allowing UN and western countries to enter as they approach this stage, making a ceasefire without breaking the pace of their combat.

  • PALESTINE IS ONE OF THE MAIN ISSUES OF TURKEY

    PALESTINE-6

     

    It is understood that the world agenda will be occupied by the Palestinian issue for a long time.

    • The election of a person of different origins as the President of the United States, which is trying to get out of the economic crisis in the new period, by leaving the pro-violence foreign policy of the United States, to convey messages that it wants to develop its policies that are based on softer relations with the Islamic World and Middle East Countries;
    • Israel's attempt at genocide in GAZA, which began on December 27, 2008, and continued slowly on January 18, 2009;
    • During the parliamentary elections and election propagandas in Israel on 10 February 2009, the promises made by leading political parties to destroy HAMAS, the builder of the resistance in GAZA, which constitutes the Palestinian legitimate government;

    This indicates that the world will be talking about PALESTINE for a long time.

    • The standing up of Turkish people and direct financial and spiritual aid to Palestine at the end of demonstrations and rallies held by non-governmental organizations during the Gaza Attack of Israel;
    • A call to stop the attack through the National Security Council, the Turkish government is taking a stand against Israel by the Prime Minister;
    • The strong outbreak of our Prime Minister to Israeli President Shimon Peres at the Panel in DAVOS on 29 January 2009;

  • The Poor and Orphan Children of Islam

    A new massacre every day.

    They enter the country by killing.

    After entering, they mix it so much that the blood does not stop.

    Since 2003, 650 thousand civilians have been murdered in Iraq.

    Thousands of civilians die every year in Afghanistan.

    Palestine cries blood for 60 years.   Like an open prison ..

    Israel has been bombing Gaza for five days since December 27, 2008, indefinitely, with all the force of modern warfare. As of December 31, when this article was written, there were 380 martyrs and at least 1,700 wounded.

    In the Islamic world, reactions are avalanche, but there are no results.

    The massacre pictures are painful.

    These Countries are the "Poor and Orphan of Islam".

    But the despair and the inability to help these “Poor and Orphan Children” hurts even more.

    The protests are not enough. It cannot prevent massacres. It does not remove the sin from one and a half billion Muslims.

    We have armies. We have a Navy. We have modern air force. But we cannot protect the oppressed.

    Deterrence is possible by using boldly acting force.

    The heart wished that the Islamic warships were heading to the eastern Mediterranean when they bombed Gaza. The air force had to conduct exercises in the eastern Mediterranean.

    Before the attack, they visited Turkey and Egypt to see If it can be deterred and they would not attack.

    The western-backed US-ISRAEL military presence in the region that has drenched the Middle East in blood, destabilized, destroyed the material and moral values, and continued its secret and open activities to dissolve the Islamic countries.

    Armed organizations in Palestine, Hezbollah in Lebanon and resistance organizations and their activities in Iraq are self-defense organizations that are revealed by the reality of occupation. This resistance organizations defending their own country at the same time, defend the other Middle Eastern countries, including Turkey.

    For the Islamic world in the near future, the primary and important threat is the western-backed US-ISRAEL military presence in the Middle East. Some Islamic countries, including Turkey, will threaten his power soon, a way of cooperation and alliance will make their task easier.

    The absence of "defensive cooperation" between Islamic countries and the absence of a common will to resist occupation arouses the desires of the overriding powers. Depending on the will of the Islamic countries; had it been possible to establish an active "Islamic surprise response force" equipped with modern weapons deployed on the territory of any of the Islamic countries that could be transported by land, sea and air that could be shipped at the request of the Islamic State exposed to occupation, it would have obtained a high degree of deterrence for abuses in similar situation. Unfortunately, Islamic countries are far from the organizations that will protect their countries.

    The provision of peace is possible with the military force that can stop the threat of the armed force.  For this reason, assaults should be treated. The Armed Forces are like the tongs in the hand holding the fire. The countries in which this fire is burning cannot be saved from the fire unless they can direct their retaliation at the hands holding the tongs. Technological backwardness does not prevent the fire from carrying it into the enemy's territory. With the possibilities they have, the Islamic countries should first develop and, in parallel, prepare the possible threats, deterrence methods in the territory of their adversary, and then encourage joint defense co-operation.

    Turkey should develop policies and strategies free from the directives of the West and the United States in the direction of the expectations of Islamic countries and lead to leadership in our region. The current political and military situation in the Middle East and the expectations of Islamic countries is the leadership of Turkey.

    Iran and Syria are ready to cooperate from yesterday.

    Let us take care of our orphans before it is too late. December 29, 2008
