Dial Turkey for Genocide

hqdefaultDial Turkey for Genocide

 

David De Hannay

To the 1.5 Million Armenians who lost their lives.

 

This is what happened in Turkey, and Turkish Intelligence Service did everything in their power to stop this documentary, and unfortunately, some corrupt American police are assisting Turkish terrorist agency.  

 

This report is based on documented evidence and first-hand sources. I conducted more than 400 interviews while gathering information for this documentary. It was made completely independently with no outside sponsorship or influence, it’s only prerogative was, to tell the truth. Before you travel to Turkey, read this. The most important thing to know about Turkish society, are listed in this report. On a separate note I was never related to Israel and they never even gave me one dollar.

 

The Republic of Turkey is a purportedly secular Muslim majority country, NATO member, and a historical haven of discrimination. To this day Turkish regime refuses to acknowledge the atrocities it has committed, towards virtually all its minority groups. Allowing ISIS to demonstrate openly in the streets of Istanbul, and even praising the organization for their assault on the Kurdish people. Turkish clerics claim, “There is no such state as Israel”.  Attacks have been committed on Synagogues, the British Consul, and journalists alike. Countless journalists have been imprisoned, tortured, and in the case of some have lost their lives in highly suspicious circumstances. Join us, as we explore the dark side of this mysterious nation, historically torn between the oriental and occidental, today favoring the radical.

 

In memory of Sarai Sierra, Jacky Sutton, Naji Jerf, Serena Shim, and Halla Barakat who were all murdered in Turkey, the largest prison for journalists by Turkish Intelligence service (MIT) and all Journalists who gave their lives to show the truth.

American photojournalist, New York native, and mother of two Sarai Sierra was murdered in the Sarayburnu district of Istanbul in January 2013. The story attracted a huge international following, but there was very little clarity ever established around the circumstances of her death with conflicting stories arising in Turkish and international media alike, as was the case with many of the others for whom this work was dedicated.

Upon my own arrival to Turkey, I began to research the circumstances of Sarai’s death and found evidence and documentation that Sarai was killed by Turkish Intelligence service. Upon discovering this I called the US embassy and asked them to assist in my search. They were unable to assist me, as I was not an American citizen and they were having a ‘problems’ with their fax machine.

 

I also tried to reach out to the Istanbul police, when I asked if they could speak English they started swearing at me in Turkish, the only person in the office who could speak a foreign language was a girl who spoke broken French. Their supervisor was an old man with a mustache, his disposition and behavior were reminiscent of Soviet Gulags. He told me it wasn’t my business and that if I wasn’t careful I would share Sarai’s fate. I told them that I would report their threats to the UN, but they didn’t care. They just said, “Here is Turkey and the UN is under our feet”.

 

In general, there is no regard for international organizations in Turkey, nor for its commitments to NATO or the UN. Turks feel powerful because in Turkey UNHCR is so weak and Turkish Intelligence service can push them in any way that they choose. The majority of UN officers are Turkish, and also extremely nationalistic by western standards, refusing to acknowledge the abuses that Turkish officers were committing. I communicated with various offices in Geneva on various occasions but their attitude seemed to be that allowing a certain amount of corruption or influence of the Turkish authorities was a necessary evil.

 

Even when I reported the rape of 30 Syrian refugee girls by Turkish police, UNHCR was silent. Turkish officers simply do not want to hear any criticism of their country. They said, “There are millions of Syrians in my country, we won’t let you make bad publicity”. Not wanting to talk badly about Turkey is a theme that you will encounter, along with a lot of excuses. It comes down to the Ataturk/Country worship that starts in childhood and never ends. Turks have long been reputed as having an inferiority complex when it comes to any kind of criticism of their nation, especially to a foreigner they are not western enough to be European but consider themselves more civilized than their Muslim neighbors to the East.  

 

To be as general as possible in Turkey though there are arguing factions, the followers of Ataturk, the communists, the followers of Erdogan, and the former followers of Gulen, will all be ready to criticize each other and blame the others for any problems in Turkey, none of them will agree to criticize their country as a whole. It is one thing to be patriotic, it is another to refuse to do one’s job competently, especially at an international organization.

 

RSF deemed Turkey extremely unsafe for journalists, many international organizations have recently called for Turkey to be more accountable when it comes to protecting journalists, native or foreign-born. In the last few years Erdogan, while supposedly having been democratically elected has started to behave more like a dictator, and now after having shut down all news outlets that spoke out against him controls nearly all media in Turkey. Frequently shutting down mass access to social networks like twitter, facebook, and youtube.

 

ISIS demonstrated openly in Turkey for quite a long time, it’s supporters faced no hindrance, until the issue attracted international attention. I photographed their supporters and shared it on my blog before any such reports had been seen on any other media. I tried to report this to the NY Times, but they did not share my reports. When I took pictures of ISIS supporters in Istanbul, one of them said we will decapitate you just like James Foley, I gave them the middle finger. That evening someone attacked my apartment and threw stones at my window.

 

They had a key to the main door, I realized later that they had been given a key by a woman named Fatma Oncu. When I first met Oncu she told me that she was a journalist and offered to translate for me, but later I realized she was working for MIT. She had been able to find a key to the entrance of Mr. Rostambakhsh’s building and was spying on him because he was a political refugee from Iran.

 

When I went to the Turkish police and to explain happened, they laughed at me and my German friend who had translated for me. Turkish police said here is a Muslim country and you are a Jew.

 

They told us that because Mr. Rostambakhsh had sex with Oncu that he should marry her. I explained that she was a consenting adult and there was never any engagement between them. They said that these were the rules of Islam and that Rostambakhsh had to marry her.

 

I am sure that these people were working with ISIS, and the Turkish police wanted to intimidate us. When we were at the police office, a Turkish officer ran his hand across his neck in a slicing motion and said something in Turkish, which was translated as ‘we will cut your head off’. Two days after this threat, ISIS published the video of James Foley’s decapitation. I believed that there was a link between the threats of the Turks and ISIS, they were close friends.

 

I called the Red Cross, and they said we can’t do anything because we have no office in Turkey. Even the RSF representative in Turkey was only ready to help those whose political ideas fell in line with his own or was also Turkish. He refused to even acknowledge that I was a journalist or support me in any way, the Turkish representative also said that in Turkey journalists are free. When I can’t believe even in RSF? When I called the Turkish officer out on being racist and nationalist, he had no response, but given my other experiences with international organizations in Turkey, I can’t say that I was surprised at all.

 

I contacted the office of Senator McCain, a brave man and true patriot, I remember I was in front of Galata Tower and I sent a voice message: Senator McCain you are the only person I can trust you.

 

Even at the French was not useful, their office was primarily made up of Turks who refused to answer any of my calls. They hung up the phone and acted as if the French consulate was an extension of the Turkish police or some other government office, they were more concerned with promoting Turkish culture than French culture. I hope they will change their strategy. Even when one of the greatest French Artists sent an invitation to Mr. Rostambakhsh, the French consulate rejected him, because the Turkish police made problems for him, and were connected with the French consulate. That was back in 2014. Many French people in Istanbul went out and smoked with Turks who were radical, but never express their sentiments to the French.

 

Thousands of people were killed by ISIS, and Turks support the idea of ISIS, in part for its religious connotations and in part because they hate the Kurds, but the French prefer to close their eyes, ignore the truth and smoke a cigarette.

 

Kerri Bennett-Schultz an American who had worked with the consulate and had connections with high ranking officials in Turkey explained that Turkish police will openly speak about being happy that ISIS was wiping out Kurdish populations in Syria. Around the time that James Foley was murdered, I heard the same words from different sources within the Turkish security forces.

 

Her connection to the consulate and American citizenship proved to be a blessing and a curse, when the police chief, Unal Altiner of Taksim, Istanbul’s city sexually assaulted her, it was that connection that saved her from rape. It was that same connection that leads Turkish government worker Sedat Ari to an attempt to bribe her into convincing the consulate against pressing charges on a man who had critically injured an American consulate worker in a traffic accident. It was that connection that leads Turkish Intelligence to target her, and Canan Tugberk to attempt to poison her with Arsenic.It was for her background that an erroneous Turkish charity asked her to fly out to record a video about a one hour drive from Raqqa.

 

In another strange turn of events Bennett-Schultz’s EU passport was stolen in 2014 in Istanbul, although she had reported it to the Irish Embassy, Turkish Police and Consul in Istanbul, it wasn’t canceled until fall of 2017 years later when she reached out to the Irish foreign ministry. It turns out that this is a regular scheme of Turkish police. The investigation is ongoing about how her passport was used in that time. Many times there is an agreement between the thief who steals the passport and the police working at Interpol. They wait a long time, and with a timeframe that took several years, it seems impossible that someone at the consulate was not somehow aware of what had happened. Such crime rings would be extremely popular, especially for migrants or terrorists leaving from Turkey. Just as Turkish Police extort refugees who busk to make ends meet, there are no smugglers who can do anything in Turkey without greasing the palms of some Turkish soldiers.

 

This is the narration for my documentary film that I made in Turkey, which entailed 3 years research and work, in Turkey. I was prepared to die for this project, as I believed in its importance. It is in memory of all the victims who were killed by Turks, the voices who were stifled by the darkness of violence.

 

While many western sources dismiss connections between Sunni and Shia states or expect that regional conflicts would make unification of certain Middle Eastern countries infeasible, it is important to note that these states are happy to unify when it comes to fighting with their shared enemy, the USA. ISIS was a friend to all those who despised the US Army, this was true for Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Turkey, who were united to destroy the US Army in Iraq. These were the supporters of ISIS until the Islamic state started wanting their lands, the Islamic world loves the idea of Mujahideen. Many Muslims from around the world flocked to join ISIS. ISIS was a new source of hope for them. When ISIS started to fight with Syria, Iran, and Russia, of course in that time ISIS fell out of their favor, but Turkey was still ready to support any organization that would make for one less Kurd in the world. Turkey maintained its relationship with Iran despite international sanctions, even shooting down a Russian plane. After that, publicly Russia forgave Turkey, but many Russian citizens, especially girls returned to Russia. It was a great tragedy for Turkish men, they cried because Antalya where Turkish men and Russian women congregate, was empty. The Turkish tourism industry also faltered, and flights between Russia and Turkey all but stopped.

 

Russia controls Turkey’s brain just like Iran and Syria, today’s Soviet Empire is larger than the last one ever was. Any large event that takes place in these countries cannot happen without Moscow’s Orders.

 

Before the pseudo-Coup in July 2016, all the Turks said that RTE was supported by the CIA, after the pseudo-Coup they said that the CIA had tried to bring RTE down. The truth is if suddenly an 80-year-old woman becomes pregnant, they will blame the CIA.

The Russian ambassador was murdered in Turkey but Russians, to a ‘renegade’ Turkish police officer who shouted, ‘Allah Huakbar’ as he dispelled 9 shots into his back. There was virtually no diplomatic row, and Father Putin waved his magic wand and transformed the diplomatically whorish  ISIS-supporting Erdogan with an ally wearing a white wedding dress.

 

One method of Turkish Intelligence Service was honeypotting, my advice to any foreigner who visits Turkey is to be careful before forming a relationship with any Turkish women, to be very careful. An Italian man slept with one woman and was later attacked by her purported husband who threatened to kill the EU citizen if he didn’t pay him. After this, the Italian was left completely destitute.This is a popular method of both extortion and extracting information. They will often make fake claims like being a photographer but won’t know how to use a camera.

 

I interviewed a Persian man who lived with a few Arabs girls, he said the living situation increased his sympathy for Israel. One of the Arabs and a Turk concocted a scheme in collaboration with the local police and ended up stealing several hundred dollars from him. Later I personally interviewed a different one of his flatmates from Morocco who told me that the girls and police had some strange arrangement where sex and money were exchanged for various favors. Apparently, the Arab extortionist who was born in Egypt is from a radical family but lives in favor with the Turkish regime. The police erased all the police records of the Persian’s accusations of her. Her name was Nabila, and her boyfriend was a Russian-Arab residing in the US, threatened to cut off Mr. Rostambakhsh’s head.  told him to get out of the USA.

 

Most Persians have two enemies the first is the Soviet regime running their country, the second are radical countries like Turkey who put Iranians in the box of sharing their Muslim ideals. The fact of the matter is that Iran is under the power of Russia, and functions like a communist country.

Many of Israelis are from Persia, which once hosted a great minority of Jews, and now many Israelis are spending money in Turkey, and unknowingly supporting Erdogan, who is a second Hitler. Neda Amin, one of my sources, a Persian Jew who now lives in Israel and was threatened in Turkey, explained that many Persian Jews go to Antalya in the south of Turkey for holiday without giving a second thought to the regime that they are inadvertently supporting, they just say, “Turkey is not our problem”.

 

When I was in Turkey I met Israeli citizens who were blissfully ignorant to the realities of Turkey. Some of them were even playing Instruments and singing in the street, finally, they declined to have an interview because they were afraid of the Turks.

 

I tried to find why Sarai Sierra was killed, in the beginning, they tried to stop me from making a film about her, one Turk who I later recognized was working for MIT introduced himself to me as a professor of cinema. He became furious with me and said, “We will not let you make a second Midnight Express”. Midnight Express was a movie by Alan Parker documenting his arrest and time in prison in Turkey. It clearly demonstrated police corruption and the barbaric conditions that people are treated within Turkey. A Turk will tell you that the movie was a dramatization, but it was very accurate. A second film that was banned in Turkey is the movie Ararat by Atom Egoyan about the Armenian Genocide. Finally, I said to him, “God Bless Hollywood” when he asked me why, I said, “ In Hollywood, we can make any story and we don’t need to come here to make a movie about Turkey and show the truth”.

 

I stand with human rights. I hate racism and radicalism.

 

Before anyone tries to travel to Turkey, it is important to know about Turkish Drug Dealers and Turkish Bitches. Turks even sent a man in to be with the consulate general, who got married to a man nearly half his age. After that, there was a giant LGBTQ flag flown outside of the American consulate, one that was even bigger than the American flag.

 

Since arriving back in the US, Turks have sent threats to me and one American family even shared my film material with Turkey. They did everything that they could to blocked Rostambakhsh’s artwork and exit from Turkey. They even made problems in the airport, Turks said that I couldn’t leave Turkey. They checked my luggage and asked what my movie was about, I told them that I didn’t make any movie. When security asked me why I said that I don’t have any sponsorship. Turks made problems for Mr. Rostambakhsh in the USA and unfortunately seems that American police helped them reaching information. My source for this was Turkish Police who gave information and he has given correct information about Mr. Rostambakhsh. The organization USCRI in the US proved how stupid, disorganized and broken down so much of the US government’s management is.

 

Pakistan and Iraq believe people like Mr. Rostambakhsh are traitors to Muslim Society, but Turk’s problem with him was not about Islam, they hated me for the same reason. We were looking for Murder in Turkey, and even helped Syrian people who were Muslim too. Those Syrians were Muslims whose lives had been destroyed by radicalism. For Turks race trumps religion, Turkish Intelligence Service was ISIS’s friend, they even killed a Syrian journalist named   Our enemies were ISIS and Turkish intelligence services.even One Syrian journalist killed by them, his name was Naji Jerf.

 

Most people in the world love to use Turkey as an example of a successful secular Muslim majority state, it is so famous in the United States, especially around Thanksgiving time, there are turkeys everywhere and affectionate jokes are made on many news channels. The United States has invested millions of dollars in keeping up its military base Incirlik in South East Turkey. The Ottoman were more famous historically. The turkey bird got its name from some confusion between the turkey native to North America and another based in India. The Turkish word for turkey is ‘Hindi’. In the world, the base of a word is not important, but a nation killing innocent people in the name of religion is.

As a freelance photojournalist and filmmaker, I read so much about methodology in anthropology. My initial decision was to make a documentary about Istanbul as a former part of the Roman Empire since to this date there are still many links of Istanbul to its Roman past.

 

The symbol of Istanbul, Galata Tower was designed by a French architect. It’s other great symbol Aya Sofya was designed by the Byzantines. Aya Sofya was originally a Church that was changed into a mosque by the Turks and recently reconverted into a Museum. Seeing the beautiful frescoes that had been covered over was so shameful. I never saw such methods anywhere else in the world. In other Muslim societies it was not commonplace to convert a Church into a mosque, but all over Turkey, it was very commonplace.

 

Before traveling throughout the middle east and Turkey, I used to think that real racists were in the USA and Germany. Before studying the Armenian Genocide I thought the worst tragedy in the 20t century was the Holocaust, but after I saw pictures of the Armenian genocide, and when I interviewed the Armenians living in Turkey, who have feared for their lives every day for generations, I witnessed a form of terrorism that had spanned for decades. I had an interview with an Armenian in Turkey, their behavior was worse than the SS. I met Kurds, Jews, Alevi’s, Greeks, gypsy populations, and refugees in Istanbul, all of them had suffered enormously. .I had more than 300 Interviews with several hundred hours of footage. I visited different cities around different areas of Turkey. I found ISIS supporters in Istanbul and wanted to publish my article about Turkey’s support of ISIS, in New York Times. I had taken pictures of ISIS supporter in Istanbul.

 

I spoke with refugees from Iran and Syria, their lives were so tragic, it reminded me of Holocaust victims headed to the gas chamber. Turkey reminded me of Auschwitz, especially when I went to some areas in Istanbul where Europeans and Americans. Turkey lied to the world and the US, they hid behind a mask of calling themselves secular. With the government controlling the media, and even the NGO’s it is almost impossible to hear the voice of the truth.

 

Several times I think God show me the truth about Turkey, there were times when I found facts by accident. I grew up with French culture and my knowledge about west history was more than other parts until I started to study on Terrorism, I spent more than15 years researching about extremism in the Middle East. I followed the methodology of  Edgar Morin method, a famous Anthropologist, and Methodologist, to study about racism in Turkey. Before I arrived in Turkey, I had no views about it as a country and didn’t have any specialized knowledge about it. Before then I had visited many Muslim countries but knew Turkey as a NATO member.

 

One opinion that I did have about Turkish society was that part of their history was based in the Ottoman Empire and that in it’s prime the Ottomans would have loved nothing more than to destroy all Occidental cultures. They also had a history of working as pirates.

 

In Modernity Turks are constantly able to show their culture in the west, they have restaurants and cultural centers all over the world, but if a member of an occidental country wants to set up some kind of center in Turkey, they will immediately be treated with suspicion and disdain. There is no portion of Turkish history that promotes human rights in any capacity, almost every other country that had committed large violations against human rights have atoned for their actions through apology, this is not the case for Turkey. A real judgment of Turkish society cannot be based on tourist destination or an evening of hospitality at a friends house. I visited all corners of Turkey, and it is society is dangerous.

 

Bennett went to Artvin close to Turkey’s border with Georgia with Mr. Rostambakhsh who had been sent there as his satellite city, however, he was one of the only refugees sent there, it was UNHCR’s equivalent of being sent to Siberia. A day after Bennett first met with Rostambakhsh, a police officer approached her and said that he was dangerous. This was what cemented her trust in him, having lived through her own terrors with the police and didn’t believe it. Bennett said that was the time which I saw the truth about Mr. Rostambakhsh who was tortured In Iranian political jail and was tortured again in turkey. He was not first and will not be the last.

 

We sent many letters to UNHCR in Turkey, as we were able to find a link between ICMC and Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. They even altered Mr. Rostambakhsh’s medical exam, and lied to the DHS, to try to keep him in Turkey. The question is where were the inspectors, and how that organization used the name of the USA to help Turkish Intelligence service for Torture people.

 

Even Turkish intelligence service said that they could solve problems at ICMC for people, which means that they had power inside of that organization. ICMC is always desperate to hire translators for their Istanbul branch, and there is almost no security. The DHS should pay attention to this.

 

To see the real face of Turkey it is necessary to go inside of their daily life. Many of them are angry and jealous when they see anyone that is going to the USA. Turkey is the motherland of terrorism and Turks know how to use and manipulate other Muslims.

 

I met a girl from Morocco who gave interesting information to me, about Palestinians who were active in Turkey and that Turkish Intelligence service is helping them make attacks on Israel. Turks use their poorest citizens to attack, worst police officers in Istanbul they were from another part of Turkey like Konya. Many native-born Turkish citizens are condemned to live as second-class citizens only for their Kurdish heritage. I met some Kurdish woman who

had been imprisoned they were in the jail, first, when they spoke about their experiences they immediately started to panic and asked me to delete their interview. Amnesty International published some information about Kurds who had been tortured by the Turkish regime, but reliable statistics are very hard to come by.

 

In Eastern Turkey, is basically completely lawless, often divided into what might be compared to fiefdoms where something similar to jus primae noctis is practiced, with only the Gendarmerie to patrol spread out villages, on land that was robbed from the Armenians. Pass times include barbaric dogfights, where the contenders are starved for a few days then drenched in honey before being forced to fight to the death.   

 

Indeed, the lack of education in Eastern Turkey has kept the Kurds in Eastern turkey down.  The sad paradox of Turkish society is that the Kurds were victimized, after the Armenians. I witnessed with my own eyes how they were mistreated. Many Kurds are afraid of the Turkish regime and a lifetime of discrimination kills their spirit, they fear not only for themselves but for their families.

 

Turkish Intelligence Service (MIT) interrogated Ms. Neda Amin who was a political refugee and worked as a blogger for Times Of Israel Farsi. While she was in Turkey they threatened her life and broke into her apartment. Neda co-authored a viral article for times of Israel with Mr. Rostambakhsh about an Iranian pilot who had defected to Turkey and threatened to share top-secret information with Israel. Turks have a strong underground relationship with Iran, and this article angered them greatly.

 

Eventually, MIT interrogated Bennett and Rostambakhsh, asking them whether they were Jewish or not and if Neda was working for Mossad. They had never even met Neda in person, only met over Skype. Two officers from Turkish Intelligence pretended to be a UNHCR officer in HRDF office in Istanbul, their names were Mete and Ugur.

 

They threatened Mr. Rostambakhsh that they would send him back to Iran if he had an interview with any news outlet about how he had been treated in Turkey. This was because he had an interview with a Persian language station in the USA, where he and Neda talked about being political refugees in Turkey and about how some refugees died. The most recent of them at the time was Jamal Hosseini. Even some parts of Iranian opposition were killed by a bomb in their own place.

 

After Iranian Revolution, Turkey made good business with Iran. Before that Iran was one of the most powerful countries in the Middle East. The most important American airbase in the area was in Iran, but in 1979 everything changed. As a someone who knows Iranian culture and history, I saw Turks misuse them very frequently, many Iranian girls used by Turkish men. For poor people in Iran, Istanbul is like a new world, Turks love to insult them but adore their money and women. Turkey was the best Supporter of the Iranian regime, they gave information about the USA to Sepah. The best witness of this is Mr. Reza Zarrab, who was recently arrested by the FBI in Miami on March 19, 2016, he was accused of a number of crimes, that mostly focused on violating US sanctions. Zarrab was only a middleman for acts that never could have been completed without the support of high ranking Iranian and Turkish government officials. Just like it is unfeasible that Turkey’s support of ISIS could have gone on without RTE’s fully informed consent. I would like to ask RTE where Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is hiding, as I’m sure he would know. Strategically Turkey would be an ideal place for Al Baghdadi to hide.

 

I hope we can start to research about those who were killed by Turks in Turkey.

 

Consul Roger Short was killed in the suicide bombing in 2003, carried out by suicide bombers that were linked to Al Qaeda, but some managed to escape the Turkish authorities grasp, although some military officials were later accused of the crime. Around the same period, there was also an attack made on a synagogue. More recently in 2017 a protest turned violent and resulted in damage one of the few remaining synagogues in Istanbul.

 

Many times Turks swore at me, calling me names like Dirty Jewish, Dirty Capitalist, French Racist. The Turkish intelligence service was the worst, they were angry about why I sent reports to the UN and various international organizations. Turks think that only they should be given jurisdiction over anything that happens to happen in Turkey. Like the poor Persian poet Rumi Mevlana, all of his poems were written in Farsi, but Turks say that he was a Turk, he lived in an area which is now a part of Turkey, Konya, but he never wrote in Turkish.But no one dares to talk about the truth.

 

Konya, the city where he is buried also has Turkey’s highest rate of alcoholism, which is very strange because it is nearly impossible to find a beer there. If you order alcohol people will be angry. Rumi wrote poetry about wine and alcohol, unlike other texts at the time, he began all his poems by talking about poetry and the flute rather than mentioning anything about religion. His teachings are not about any one religion but rather about humanity, but if you look in Turkey, many extremely conservative cults occurred around his teachings, that profess to be his only true followers. Some  Sufism moved to Turkey and their kids called Alavi .who are different on some side but don’t know anything about Rumi, about Sama

In Konya, they changed everything about Mevlana’s teachings and showed his teachings as being a part of radical Islam. If anyone studied about the original Sama, they could understand the difference.

Turks are professionals about using different cultures and calling it their own. Even about fast food. McDonald’s in Turkey is Turkish Version of McDonald. Also clothing ..about books and movie, they don’t have any respect for copyright and Turkish communists believed when they steal anything from a foreigner, it is not problems.

 

With regard to politics, they have what one might call a warped meaning of freedom. Also, their Communists have mixed Marx’s philosophies with Ataturk and the Ottoman empire. Most of them believe that the Armenian genocide was merely an act of self-defense, and they have no guilt about atrocities committed by their nation.

 

The December 2016 assassination of the Russian Ambassador to Turkey, occurred at an art exhibition featuring photography by Turks of Russia, which was already going to make positive publicity for Turkey. There was never even such an event during the cold war, it was a great tragedy in the history of diplomacy. This exhibition turned out to be a glory for Turkish police and Turkish art alike. Even in the Cold war, the west never assassinated a diplomat.

 

Another tragedy in Turkey was the what befell former BBC journalist and UN worker Jackie Sutton. The former BBC journalist was found dead inside Ataturk airport, she was found hanging by her shoelaces in Ataturk airport. Without a doubt, Turkish intelligence service was behind her death.

 

MIT requested that Neda work for them,  finally giving her an ultimatum of being returned to Iran if she did not comply with their orders. For Amin returning to Iran would be equivalent to a death sentence as she had worked with an Israeli news agency, and would be accused of treason.  Finally in 2107 Turks began the process to deport her, and labeled her as a Mossad agent. UNHCR essentially washed its hands of her, luckily Amin was able to take refuge in Israel. Time of Israel English editor in chief David Horowitz stepped up to the plate and helped. She was even welcomed by Israeli ministers.

 

They even asked me if I was working for Mossad because I knew people who were working for Times of Israel. When MIT asked me this I replied, “First you thought I was working for the CIA now this?”. From their perspective, every American is working for the CIA and every Jew is working for Mossad, they are simply paranoid.

 

I used to ask the street cats in Istanbul. “Are you working for the CIA?”. Since all Turks think that Americans are working with CIA.

 

I was in Turkey when the Coup happened with my British friend, from the beginning we were sure that it was not a real Coup, but a performance by RTE. Some of my friends commented that Turkey is a country where Coups happen all the time. I said, “The worst coup in this country was when Erdogan destroyed the military.” After the coup, Erdogan’s supporters were in the street, and they were so angry with westerners. Even in the metro they swore at my friends and grabbed their asses, it was at this time that we saw Turkey’s true-face. After viewing this harassment,

I promised myself that in any way, I would show all facts to the world. I should mention, Turks are not only enemies of the west, they also hate Jews and Arabs.

 

In the beginning of the Turkish republic, they replaced the Islamic call to prayer which is typically recited in Arabic, to one in Turkish. Ataturk is the second god for Turks after Allah and for some of them, he is more Important than Allah! Later their religious officials said that it was not possible, even though they look down on Arabs, they hear Arabic 5 times a day. I heard the call to prayer in many countries, but the Turkish version is the angriest version. In this time Turks are using Islam as a weapon, I’m sure they don’t believe in it like other Muslim countries, it is more a matter of tradition. Some of my Turkish models posed Nude then said, “Don’t show my photos”.

 

Part of my research encompassed sexual life in Turkey. Most Turkish women hated their men and most of the Turkish men cheat on their wives with either prostitutes or foreigners. For many of them, nothing is better than a Russian girl. All Turkish men can die for them. I met one morbidly obese American woman who was 56 but had a  30 old boyfriend, Bodrum is full of old British women who find love with Kurdish waiters.

 

In Turkey, people have virtually no sex education or knowledge, everything that they learn come from porn. Most of the Turkish women that we interviewed complained of being unhappy in their sex lives, and most men were trying to find foreign women.

 

We interviewed several students at the American University in Istanbul, and although the university was founded by the United States, many students are radical and hate America. There was not any control by US Consulate,

 

When we went to the US consulate, we saw that the security officer was speaking only Turkish no English when we tried to enter the consulate. I said can you speak French, they said, “No here is the US Consulate, so I asked why are you speaking Turkish then?” None of them seemed to know but they were all very proud to be doing so.

The Turkish language itself is a slush of Arabic, Persian, and French although with the founding of the Turkish Republic the Latin alphabet was implemented. Many Turks regard this as a major point of modernization.

 

Ataturk himself was a soldier in the Ottoman army in WW1 when Turkey was allied with the Germans, Turkey also supported Germany when Nazism had gained strength and as Hitler rose to power. In WW1 T. E. Lawrence destroyed the ottomans while fighting with the Arabs, but you will never hear about this in Turkish history. Lawrence worked as a normal aircraftman while serving in the Royal Air Force, but his strategic acumen proved to be invaluable for the British Army. After WW2 the United States began its friendship with Turkey and made the Horrific error of allowing Turkey to enter NATO, where Incirlik would eventually be constructed.

The relationship formed with Turkey from NATO never benefited the EU or the USA, even in War with Iraq, Turkey betrayed the United States, many Americans lost their lives because of the Turk’s actions. Turkey sold US Army to Saddam Hussein, then to ISIS. Even during the Iran-Iraq war, Turkey supported Saddam. Unfortunately, most people around the world don’t have valid, but everyday people are raped, or their possessions are stolen, with the cooperation of the Turkish police or Intelligence service. Hopefully, we can Stop another Terrorist attack like September 11th from ever happening again, but this is not a goal that Turkey can ever be helpful in.

 

Recently citing ridiculous charges and accusations of Coup involvement and violating their constitution, Turkey has issued arrest warrants for several American scholars and ex-CIA officers. Graham E. Fuller former CIA station chief. And vice chairman of the National Intelligence Council at the CIA. The Turks even went so far as to accuse Mr. Rostambaksh of supporting the CIA.

 

It is hard to believe that Turkey can dare to spread its internal witch hunt that started even before it’s pseudo-coup. Turks attacked the US embassy, US consulate, and American citizens, that being said, Americans are the number one target for attack in Turkey. That being said, Turks are famous as Drug Dealers, and Turkey is the door to Europe for illegal opioids, I have sources who were working as couriers between Turkey and Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.

An additional glory for Turkish history is that one of London’s most infamous drug dealers is a Turk.

 

Mr. Rostambakhsh said that after seeing the Swastika, the Turkish flag that reminds him of genocide most, there were millions of Armenians who were killed and the Kurds who have been tormented by Turks. Turkey and Pakistan are mirror images of one another in complementary colors, and Pakistan assisted in the founding of Turkey. This didn’t happen accidentally, and Turkey has a very close relationship with Pakistan. Bin Laden was in Pakistan too, and there is a deep relationship between Turkish Intelligence service and Pakistan, even when I was in New York one Pakistani followed me and recorded a video of me. The first sign of Turkey’s influence in New York came from a Pakistani. We know that Al Qaeda had a base in Turkey and that many actions of Turkey came under suspicion when 9/11 happened. We hope that sharing this information will help to prove that Turks were supporting Al Qaeda.

 

Smugglers in Turkey offer a one way trip to the USA by ship for the low price of 30 thousand dollars, they do so with the encouragement of Turkish authorities, who enjoy a slice of the pie. The real problem is the potential of terrorists entering the United States. Throughout history Turks were regarded as pirates on the sea and pillagers on the land, sending migrants into the civilized world is a new form of assault.

 

Turkey has the longest standing application for EU membership in the history of the Union, thankfully there is no plan of acceptance in sight. It’s a common joke in Turkey that EU membership would mean giving up certain beloved foods like Kokorec, sauteed animal innards and Raw Kofte that includes raw meat, the fact of the matter is that culinary oddities are the least of Europe’s reservations about Turkey. When France blocked Turkey’s application, RTE cried Islamophobia, it is far less likely that religion was a factor, and far more likely that the seemingly endless list of human rights abuses and corruption in Turkey are the main problems. When the German parliament acknowledged the Armenian genocide, Turkish members of the parliament who voted in favor received countless threats. Turks even called the Dutch ‘Nazis’, it seems in the case of the Armenian genocide that Turkey has shortsightedly forgotten its own history of allying with Hitler.

 

One life stolen for things like heritage, faith, ethnicity or anything else that one can’t control, is an unthinkable horror, which might be what makes genocide such a hard thing for us to fully comprehend. Germany committed one of the greatest atrocities in the history of the world with the Holocaust, but in today’s Germany, there is no one who will condemn the holocaust faster than a German millennial. It is nearly impossible to find such a reaction in Turkey, about the Armenian genocide, instead, you will hear a lot of conspiracy theories and victim blaming. There is a mirror today between some of the behaviors of Nazi Germany with the jews, as Turkey’s institutional treatment of its minorities like the Jews, the Armenians, and the Kurds. There were many who lost their lives in the holocaust, not for a faith that they even practice, but for the blood that flowed in their veins, and the heritage they happened to have. Practicing Jews who went to synagogues would not have even accepted them as Jewish, say if they had a Jewish father and a gentile mother, none the less they would be killed. The same was true for Armenians who were literally crucified at the hands of the Turks, and the Kurds who are judged today for their heritage.

 

Rostambakhsh had Jewish heritage, and in the time that he was residing in Turkey he reached out to the Jewish Agency, who promised to send him a DNA test but never did. One man named Asher spoke with him and Amin on several occasions, Ashed claimed to work for the Jewish Agency, but never assisted either of them in getting information about their Jewish heritage. Later on, Turkish Intelligence Service asked Rostambakhsh whether he was Jewish or not as if it would be a crime to be a Jew. He said that no matter what religion a person has, it can’t solve any problems for them. Later they asked what Rostambakhsh thought about RTE, he said that Turkey’s political choices are none of his business, although every person with a brain knows that RTE is a mentally deranged terrorist and dictator.

 

When MIT interrogated Bennett and Schultz there were delighted to hear that the two were not interested in Turkey’s politics. Indeed someone should call Turkish intelligence service, ‘stupidity’ service. If it was not their business why did MIT ask?

 

Turkey is professional about seducing foreigners with a few nights of Raki and a Bosphorus view, that is why many of the foreigners you meet who have been to Turkey will rush to its defense so quickly. During my research, I used different reporters with different nationalities. When a Persian asks a Turk about the USA, most of them recite a jumble of the words, “Stupid, Capitalist, Imperialist” along with a flurry of conspiracy theories. That being said, the same people are also ready to wait in line for hours in line at the nearest US Consulate or Embassy in hopes of getting a selfie in Times Square, or for the ‘upper’ classes, being able to travel to the US to give birth to US citizens who will never even know the meaning of living in a free society.

If a westerner talks with a Turk about Iran, they would hear things like. “Uncivilized” along with a number of judgemental statements about radical Islam, in which the Turk will try to assure whoever he is talking to that Turkey is not a ‘dirty Muslim country’.

 

After all the Syrians came into Turkey, it was very common to hear Turks talking about how hospitable and kind they had been to their Syrian brothers and sisters, of course, the Syrian Kurds who were barred at the border when Kobane was burning never got to hear this, and I scarcely expect that they ever felt it. Turks would go on and on to Syrians about how Iran and the USA were their enemies, and Turkey was the only true ally of the Syrian people. However, the Syrian population who had already lived through horrors many of us can scarcely imagine, Syrians were able to understand the true state of things. Syrians knew that Assad was supported by the Iranian regime, and Assad had allowed the country to deteriorate enough that the North could be terrorized by ISIS. Syrians knew that Turkey was supporting ISIS and that Iran was as evil as ISIS. There were Syrian journalists who gave their lives to prove that ISIS is not an enemy of Turkey or Iran, and their only goal is to shatter human lives.

 

This film was made over the course of 3 years in Turkey and my life was threatened for it. Many times the police stopped my crew and I. Now local police in Albany New York who have a connection with MIT are also trying to stop this documentary from being published. Why? Because one German American farmer accused this project of victimizing Turkish society. Iran’s Revolutionary Guard even tried to intimidate Mr. Rostambakhsh’s family when he reported about ISIS’s activities in Turkey. Turkish intelligence Service sent false information to Iran’s government to try and cause problems for him. Iran’s trust for Turkey is nearly implicit since Turkey did so much to help smuggle goods into Iran which sanctions from the USA were in place, but Turkey supported Saddam during the Iran-Iraq war. There are many other issues like this, that at face value seem to be completely illogical.

 

A local newspaper that published a story on Rostambakhsh and Bennett basically avoided all the facts in the article that they wrote. They falsified information about Mr. Rostambakhsh’s legal process in coming to the USA and wrote nothing about when they were interrogated, the death threats that they had received, or the documents that they found linking Turkey to ISIS. For many people, such a story would be completely incomprehensible, but these are the facts.

Rostambakhsh had saved the lives of 3 Americans by the time he moved to the United States, they are only alive because of him when met the Schultz family who were relatives of Bennett did everything in their power to cause problems for him. It was that very family that tried to cause problems for him and said he was making trouble for Turkey, they conveniently forgot that Turkish authorities wanted to kill their grandchild. When he went to give information to the local FBI, they asked him what his religion was. He said that he believed in God. Then they asked him what Mosque he was going to. He replied saying that he had been in a synagogue the week before, and had Jewish heritage but basically had not religion. To my dismay, their idiotic behavior mirrored that of MIT. In the United States, no religion should be a crime, or it cannot be a truly free society, only intolerance should be intolerable.  Personally, I do not identify with any religion either, but throughout all the mess and confusion of the different facts we found, “You shall know the truth and truth will set you free” stayed in the back of my mind all the time. The only way that the free world will ever be free from its inability to successfully analyze the terrorist and extremist society will be to understand the truth, however ugly that might be.

 

 

David De Hannay

To the 1.5 Million Armenians who lost their lives.

 

This is what happened in Turkey, and Turkish Intelligence Service did everything in their power to stop this documentary, and unfortunately, some corrupt American police are assisting Turkish terrorist agency.  

 

This report is based on documented evidence and first-hand sources. I conducted more than 400 interviews while gathering information for this documentary. It was made completely independently with no outside sponsorship or influence, it’s only prerogative was, to tell the truth. Before you travel to Turkey, read this. The most important thing to know about Turkish society, are listed in this report. On a separate note I was never related to Israel and they never even gave me one dollar.

 

The Republic of Turkey is a purportedly secular Muslim majority country, NATO member, and a historical haven of discrimination. To this day Turkish regime refuses to acknowledge the atrocities it has committed, towards virtually all its minority groups. Allowing ISIS to demonstrate openly in the streets of Istanbul, and even praising the organization for their assault on the Kurdish people. Turkish clerics claim, “There is no such state as Israel”.  Attacks have been committed on Synagogues, the British Consul, and journalists alike. Countless journalists have been imprisoned, tortured, and in the case of some have lost their lives in highly suspicious circumstances. Join us, as we explore the dark side of this mysterious nation, historically torn between the oriental and occidental, today favoring the radical.

 

In memory of Sarai Sierra, Jacky Sutton, Naji Jerf, Serena Shim, and Halla Barakat who were all murdered in Turkey, the largest prison for journalists by Turkish Intelligence service (MIT) and all Journalists who gave their lives to show the truth.

American photojournalist, New York native, and mother of two Sarai Sierra was murdered in the Sarayburnu district of Istanbul in January 2013. The story attracted a huge international following, but there was very little clarity ever established around the circumstances of her death with conflicting stories arising in Turkish and international media alike, as was the case with many of the others for whom this work was dedicated.

Upon my own arrival to Turkey, I began to research the circumstances of Sarai’s death and found evidence and documentation that Sarai was killed by Turkish Intelligence service. Upon discovering this I called the US embassy and asked them to assist in my search. They were unable to assist me, as I was not an American citizen and they were having a ‘problems’ with their fax machine.

 

I also tried to reach out to the Istanbul police, when I asked if they could speak English they started swearing at me in Turkish, the only person in the office who could speak a foreign language was a girl who spoke broken French. Their supervisor was an old man with a mustache, his disposition and behavior were reminiscent of Soviet Gulags. He told me it wasn’t my business and that if I wasn’t careful I would share Sarai’s fate. I told them that I would report their threats to the UN, but they didn’t care. They just said, “Here is Turkey and the UN is under our feet”.

 

In general, there is no regard for international organizations in Turkey, nor for its commitments to NATO or the UN. Turks feel powerful because in Turkey UNHCR is so weak and Turkish Intelligence service can push them in any way that they choose. The majority of UN officers are Turkish, and also extremely nationalistic by western standards, refusing to acknowledge the abuses that Turkish officers were committing. I communicated with various offices in Geneva on various occasions but their attitude seemed to be that allowing a certain amount of corruption or influence of the Turkish authorities was a necessary evil.

 

Even when I reported the rape of 30 Syrian refugee girls by Turkish police, UNHCR was silent. Turkish officers simply do not want to hear any criticism of their country. They said, “There are millions of Syrians in my country, we won’t let you make bad publicity”. Not wanting to talk badly about Turkey is a theme that you will encounter, along with a lot of excuses. It comes down to the Ataturk/Country worship that starts in childhood and never ends. Turks have long been reputed as having an inferiority complex when it comes to any kind of criticism of their nation, especially to a foreigner they are not western enough to be European but consider themselves more civilized than their Muslim neighbors to the East.  

 

To be as general as possible in Turkey though there are arguing factions, the followers of Ataturk, the communists, the followers of Erdogan, and the former followers of Gulen, will all be ready to criticize each other and blame the others for any problems in Turkey, none of them will agree to criticize their country as a whole. It is one thing to be patriotic, it is another to refuse to do one’s job competently, especially at an international organization.

 

RSF deemed Turkey extremely unsafe for journalists, many international organizations have recently called for Turkey to be more accountable when it comes to protecting journalists, native or foreign-born. In the last few years Erdogan, while supposedly having been democratically elected has started to behave more like a dictator, and now after having shut down all news outlets that spoke out against him controls nearly all media in Turkey. Frequently shutting down mass access to social networks like twitter, facebook, and youtube.

 

ISIS demonstrated openly in Turkey for quite a long time, it’s supporters faced no hindrance, until the issue attracted international attention. I photographed their supporters and shared it on my blog before any such reports had been seen on any other media. I tried to report this to the NY Times, but they did not share my reports. When I took pictures of ISIS supporters in Istanbul, one of them said we will decapitate you just like James Foley, I gave them the middle finger. That evening someone attacked my apartment and threw stones at my window.

 

They had a key to the main door, I realized later that they had been given a key by a woman named Fatma Oncu. When I first met Oncu she told me that she was a journalist and offered to translate for me, but later I realized she was working for MIT. She had been able to find a key to the entrance of Mr. Rostambakhsh’s building and was spying on him because he was a political refugee from Iran.

 

When I went to the Turkish police and to explain happened, they laughed at me and my German friend who had translated for me. Turkish police said here is a Muslim country and you are a Jew.

 

They told us that because Mr. Rostambakhsh had sex with Oncu that he should marry her. I explained that she was a consenting adult and there was never any engagement between them. They said that these were the rules of Islam and that Rostambakhsh had to marry her.

 

I am sure that these people were working with ISIS, and the Turkish police wanted to intimidate us. When we were at the police office, a Turkish officer ran his hand across his neck in a slicing motion and said something in Turkish, which was translated as ‘we will cut your head off’. Two days after this threat, ISIS published the video of James Foley’s decapitation. I believed that there was a link between the threats of the Turks and ISIS, they were close friends.

 

I called the Red Cross, and they said we can’t do anything because we have no office in Turkey. Even the RSF representative in Turkey was only ready to help those whose political ideas fell in line with his own or was also Turkish. He refused to even acknowledge that I was a journalist or support me in any way, the Turkish representative also said that in Turkey journalists are free. When I can’t believe even in RSF? When I called the Turkish officer out on being racist and nationalist, he had no response, but given my other experiences with international organizations in Turkey, I can’t say that I was surprised at all.

 

I contacted the office of Senator McCain, a brave man and true patriot, I remember I was in front of Galata Tower and I sent a voice message: Senator McCain you are the only person I can trust you.

 

Even at the French was not useful, their office was primarily made up of Turks who refused to answer any of my calls. They hung up the phone and acted as if the French consulate was an extension of the Turkish police or some other government office, they were more concerned with promoting Turkish culture than French culture. I hope they will change their strategy. Even when one of the greatest French Artists sent an invitation to Mr. Rostambakhsh, the French consulate rejected him, because the Turkish police made problems for him, and were connected with the French consulate. That was back in 2014. Many French people in Istanbul went out and smoked with Turks who were radical, but never express their sentiments to the French.

 

Thousands of people were killed by ISIS, and Turks support the idea of ISIS, in part for its religious connotations and in part because they hate the Kurds, but the French prefer to close their eyes, ignore the truth and smoke a cigarette.

 

Kerri Bennett-Schultz an American who had worked with the consulate and had connections with high ranking officials in Turkey explained that Turkish police will openly speak about being happy that ISIS was wiping out Kurdish populations in Syria. Around the time that James Foley was murdered, I heard the same words from different sources within the Turkish security forces.

 

Her connection to the consulate and American citizenship proved to be a blessing and a curse, when the police chief, Unal Altiner of Taksim, Istanbul’s city sexually assaulted her, it was that connection that saved her from rape. It was that same connection that leads Turkish government worker Sedat Ari to an attempt to bribe her into convincing the consulate against pressing charges on a man who had critically injured an American consulate worker in a traffic accident. It was that connection that leads Turkish Intelligence to target her, and Canan Tugberk to attempt to poison her with Arsenic.It was for her background that an erroneous Turkish charity asked her to fly out to record a video about a one hour drive from Raqqa.

 

In another strange turn of events Bennett-Schultz’s EU passport was stolen in 2014 in Istanbul, although she had reported it to the Irish Embassy, Turkish Police and Consul in Istanbul, it wasn’t canceled until fall of 2017 years later when she reached out to the Irish foreign ministry. It turns out that this is a regular scheme of Turkish police. The investigation is ongoing about how her passport was used in that time. Many times there is an agreement between the thief who steals the passport and the police working at Interpol. They wait a long time, and with a timeframe that took several years, it seems impossible that someone at the consulate was not somehow aware of what had happened. Such crime rings would be extremely popular, especially for migrants or terrorists leaving from Turkey. Just as Turkish Police extort refugees who busk to make ends meet, there are no smugglers who can do anything in Turkey without greasing the palms of some Turkish soldiers.

 

This is the narration for my documentary film that I made in Turkey, which entailed 3 years research and work, in Turkey. I was prepared to die for this project, as I believed in its importance. It is in memory of all the victims who were killed by Turks, the voices who were stifled by the darkness of violence.

 

While many western sources dismiss connections between Sunni and Shia states or expect that regional conflicts would make unification of certain Middle Eastern countries infeasible, it is important to note that these states are happy to unify when it comes to fighting with their shared enemy, the USA. ISIS was a friend to all those who despised the US Army, this was true for Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Turkey, who were united to destroy the US Army in Iraq. These were the supporters of ISIS until the Islamic state started wanting their lands, the Islamic world loves the idea of Mujahideen. Many Muslims from around the world flocked to join ISIS. ISIS was a new source of hope for them. When ISIS started to fight with Syria, Iran, and Russia, of course in that time ISIS fell out of their favor, but Turkey was still ready to support any organization that would make for one less Kurd in the world. Turkey maintained its relationship with Iran despite international sanctions, even shooting down a Russian plane. After that, publicly Russia forgave Turkey, but many Russian citizens, especially girls returned to Russia. It was a great tragedy for Turkish men, they cried because Antalya where Turkish men and Russian women congregate, was empty. The Turkish tourism industry also faltered, and flights between Russia and Turkey all but stopped.

 

Russia controls Turkey’s brain just like Iran and Syria, today’s Soviet Empire is larger than the last one ever was. Any large event that takes place in these countries cannot happen without Moscow’s Orders.

 

Before the pseudo-Coup in July 2016, all the Turks said that RTE was supported by the CIA, after the pseudo-Coup they said that the CIA had tried to bring RTE down. The truth is if suddenly an 80-year-old woman becomes pregnant, they will blame the CIA.

The Russian ambassador was murdered in Turkey but Russians, to a ‘renegade’ Turkish police officer who shouted, ‘Allah Huakbar’ as he dispelled 9 shots into his back. There was virtually no diplomatic row, and Father Putin waved his magic wand and transformed the diplomatically whorish  ISIS-supporting Erdogan with an ally wearing a white wedding dress.

 

One method of Turkish Intelligence Service was honeypotting, my advice to any foreigner who visits Turkey is to be careful before forming a relationship with any Turkish women, to be very careful. An Italian man slept with one woman and was later attacked by her purported husband who threatened to kill the EU citizen if he didn’t pay him. After this, the Italian was left completely destitute.This is a popular method of both extortion and extracting information. They will often make fake claims like being a photographer but won’t know how to use a camera.

 

I interviewed a Persian man who lived with a few Arabs girls, he said the living situation increased his sympathy for Israel. One of the Arabs and a Turk concocted a scheme in collaboration with the local police and ended up stealing several hundred dollars from him. Later I personally interviewed a different one of his flatmates from Morocco who told me that the girls and police had some strange arrangement where sex and money were exchanged for various favors. Apparently, the Arab extortionist who was born in Egypt is from a radical family but lives in favor with the Turkish regime. The police erased all the police records of the Persian’s accusations of her. Her name was Nabila, and her boyfriend was a Russian-Arab residing in the US, threatened to cut off Mr. Rostambakhsh’s head.  told him to get out of the USA.

 

Most Persians have two enemies the first is the Soviet regime running their country, the second are radical countries like Turkey who put Iranians in the box of sharing their Muslim ideals. The fact of the matter is that Iran is under the power of Russia, and functions like a communist country.

Many of Israelis are from Persia, which once hosted a great minority of Jews, and now many Israelis are spending money in Turkey, and unknowingly supporting Erdogan, who is a second Hitler. Neda Amin, one of my sources, a Persian Jew who now lives in Israel and was threatened in Turkey, explained that many Persian Jews go to Antalya in the south of Turkey for holiday without giving a second thought to the regime that they are inadvertently supporting, they just say, “Turkey is not our problem”.

 

When I was in Turkey I met Israeli citizens who were blissfully ignorant to the realities of Turkey. Some of them were even playing Instruments and singing in the street, finally, they declined to have an interview because they were afraid of the Turks.

 

I tried to find why Sarai Sierra was killed, in the beginning, they tried to stop me from making a film about her, one Turk who I later recognized was working for MIT introduced himself to me as a professor of cinema. He became furious with me and said, “We will not let you make a second Midnight Express”. Midnight Express was a movie by Alan Parker documenting his arrest and time in prison in Turkey. It clearly demonstrated police corruption and the barbaric conditions that people are treated within Turkey. A Turk will tell you that the movie was a dramatization, but it was very accurate. A second film that was banned in Turkey is the movie Ararat by Atom Egoyan about the Armenian Genocide. Finally, I said to him, “God Bless Hollywood” when he asked me why, I said, “ In Hollywood, we can make any story and we don’t need to come here to make a movie about Turkey and show the truth”.

 

I stand with human rights. I hate racism and radicalism.

 

Before anyone tries to travel to Turkey, it is important to know about Turkish Drug Dealers and Turkish Bitches. Turks even sent a man in to be with the consulate general, who got married to a man nearly half his age. After that, there was a giant LGBTQ flag flown outside of the American consulate, one that was even bigger than the American flag.

 

Since arriving back in the US, Turks have sent threats to me and one American family even shared my film material with Turkey. They did everything that they could to blocked Rostambakhsh’s artwork and exit from Turkey. They even made problems in the airport, Turks said that I couldn’t leave Turkey. They checked my luggage and asked what my movie was about, I told them that I didn’t make any movie. When security asked me why I said that I don’t have any sponsorship. Turks made problems for Mr. Rostambakhsh in the USA and unfortunately seems that American police helped them reaching information. My source for this was Turkish Police who gave information and he has given correct information about Mr. Rostambakhsh. The organization USCRI in the US proved how stupid, disorganized and broken down so much of the US government’s management is.

 

Pakistan and Iraq believe people like Mr. Rostambakhsh are traitors to Muslim Society, but Turk’s problem with him was not about Islam, they hated me for the same reason. We were looking for Murder in Turkey, and even helped Syrian people who were Muslim too. Those Syrians were Muslims whose lives had been destroyed by radicalism. For Turks race trumps religion, Turkish Intelligence Service was ISIS’s friend, they even killed a Syrian journalist named   Our enemies were ISIS and Turkish intelligence services.even One Syrian journalist killed by them, his name was Naji Jerf.

 

Most people in the world love to use Turkey as an example of a successful secular Muslim majority state, it is so famous in the United States, especially around Thanksgiving time, there are turkeys everywhere and affectionate jokes are made on many news channels. The United States has invested millions of dollars in keeping up its military base Incirlik in South East Turkey. The Ottoman were more famous historically. The turkey bird got its name from some confusion between the turkey native to North America and another based in India. The Turkish word for turkey is ‘Hindi’. In the world, the base of a word is not important, but a nation killing innocent people in the name of religion is.

As a freelance photojournalist and filmmaker, I read so much about methodology in anthropology. My initial decision was to make a documentary about Istanbul as a former part of the Roman Empire since to this date there are still many links of Istanbul to its Roman past.

 

The symbol of Istanbul, Galata Tower was designed by a French architect. It’s other great symbol Aya Sofya was designed by the Byzantines. Aya Sofya was originally a Church that was changed into a mosque by the Turks and recently reconverted into a Museum. Seeing the beautiful frescoes that had been covered over was so shameful. I never saw such methods anywhere else in the world. In other Muslim societies it was not commonplace to convert a Church into a mosque, but all over Turkey, it was very commonplace.

 

Before traveling throughout the middle east and Turkey, I used to think that real racists were in the USA and Germany. Before studying the Armenian Genocide I thought the worst tragedy in the 20t century was the Holocaust, but after I saw pictures of the Armenian genocide, and when I interviewed the Armenians living in Turkey, who have feared for their lives every day for generations, I witnessed a form of terrorism that had spanned for decades. I had an interview with an Armenian in Turkey, their behavior was worse than the SS. I met Kurds, Jews, Alevi’s, Greeks, gypsy populations, and refugees in Istanbul, all of them had suffered enormously. .I had more than 300 Interviews with several hundred hours of footage. I visited different cities around different areas of Turkey. I found ISIS supporters in Istanbul and wanted to publish my article about Turkey’s support of ISIS, in New York Times. I had taken pictures of ISIS supporter in Istanbul.

 

I spoke with refugees from Iran and Syria, their lives were so tragic, it reminded me of Holocaust victims headed to the gas chamber. Turkey reminded me of Auschwitz, especially when I went to some areas in Istanbul where Europeans and Americans. Turkey lied to the world and the US, they hid behind a mask of calling themselves secular. With the government controlling the media, and even the NGO’s it is almost impossible to hear the voice of the truth.

 

Several times I think God show me the truth about Turkey, there were times when I found facts by accident. I grew up with French culture and my knowledge about west history was more than other parts until I started to study on Terrorism, I spent more than15 years researching about extremism in the Middle East. I followed the methodology of  Edgar Morin method, a famous Anthropologist, and Methodologist, to study about racism in Turkey. Before I arrived in Turkey, I had no views about it as a country and didn’t have any specialized knowledge about it. Before then I had visited many Muslim countries but knew Turkey as a NATO member.

 

One opinion that I did have about Turkish society was that part of their history was based in the Ottoman Empire and that in it’s prime the Ottomans would have loved nothing more than to destroy all Occidental cultures. They also had a history of working as pirates.

 

In Modernity Turks are constantly able to show their culture in the west, they have restaurants and cultural centers all over the world, but if a member of an occidental country wants to set up some kind of center in Turkey, they will immediately be treated with suspicion and disdain. There is no portion of Turkish history that promotes human rights in any capacity, almost every other country that had committed large violations against human rights have atoned for their actions through apology, this is not the case for Turkey. A real judgment of Turkish society cannot be based on tourist destination or an evening of hospitality at a friends house. I visited all corners of Turkey, and it is society is dangerous.

 

Bennett went to Artvin close to Turkey’s border with Georgia with Mr. Rostambakhsh who had been sent there as his satellite city, however, he was one of the only refugees sent there, it was UNHCR’s equivalent of being sent to Siberia. A day after Bennett first met with Rostambakhsh, a police officer approached her and said that he was dangerous. This was what cemented her trust in him, having lived through her own terrors with the police and didn’t believe it. Bennett said that was the time which I saw the truth about Mr. Rostambakhsh who was tortured In Iranian political jail and was tortured again in turkey. He was not first and will not be the last.

 

We sent many letters to UNHCR in Turkey, as we were able to find a link between ICMC and Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. They even altered Mr. Rostambakhsh’s medical exam, and lied to the DHS, to try to keep him in Turkey. The question is where were the inspectors, and how that organization used the name of the USA to help Turkish Intelligence service for Torture people.

 

Even Turkish intelligence service said that they could solve problems at ICMC for people, which means that they had power inside of that organization. ICMC is always desperate to hire translators for their Istanbul branch, and there is almost no security. The DHS should pay attention to this.

 

To see the real face of Turkey it is necessary to go inside of their daily life. Many of them are angry and jealous when they see anyone that is going to the USA. Turkey is the motherland of terrorism and Turks know how to use and manipulate other Muslims.

 

I met a girl from Morocco who gave interesting information to me, about Palestinians who were active in Turkey and that Turkish Intelligence service is helping them make attacks on Israel. Turks use their poorest citizens to attack, worst police officers in Istanbul they were from another part of Turkey like Konya. Many native-born Turkish citizens are condemned to live as second-class citizens only for their Kurdish heritage. I met some Kurdish woman who

had been imprisoned they were in the jail, first, when they spoke about their experiences they immediately started to panic and asked me to delete their interview. Amnesty International published some information about Kurds who had been tortured by the Turkish regime, but reliable statistics are very hard to come by.

 

In Eastern Turkey, is basically completely lawless, often divided into what might be compared to fiefdoms where something similar to jus primae noctis is practiced, with only the Gendarmerie to patrol spread out villages, on land that was robbed from the Armenians. Pass times include barbaric dogfights, where the contenders are starved for a few days then drenched in honey before being forced to fight to the death.   

 

Indeed, the lack of education in Eastern Turkey has kept the Kurds in Eastern turkey down.  The sad paradox of Turkish society is that the Kurds were victimized, after the Armenians. I witnessed with my own eyes how they were mistreated. Many Kurds are afraid of the Turkish regime and a lifetime of discrimination kills their spirit, they fear not only for themselves but for their families.

 

Turkish Intelligence Service (MIT) interrogated Ms. Neda Amin who was a political refugee and worked as a blogger for Times Of Israel Farsi. While she was in Turkey they threatened her life and broke into her apartment. Neda co-authored a viral article for times of Israel with Mr. Rostambakhsh about an Iranian pilot who had defected to Turkey and threatened to share top-secret information with Israel. Turks have a strong underground relationship with Iran, and this article angered them greatly.

 

Eventually, MIT interrogated Bennett and Rostambakhsh, asking them whether they were Jewish or not and if Neda was working for Mossad. They had never even met Neda in person, only met over Skype. Two officers from Turkish Intelligence pretended to be a UNHCR officer in HRDF office in Istanbul, their names were Mete and Ugur.

 

They threatened Mr. Rostambakhsh that they would send him back to Iran if he had an interview with any news outlet about how he had been treated in Turkey. This was because he had an interview with a Persian language station in the USA, where he and Neda talked about being political refugees in Turkey and about how some refugees died. The most recent of them at the time was Jamal Hosseini. Even some parts of Iranian opposition were killed by a bomb in their own place.

 

After Iranian Revolution, Turkey made good business with Iran. Before that Iran was one of the most powerful countries in the Middle East. The most important American airbase in the area was in Iran, but in 1979 everything changed. As a someone who knows Iranian culture and history, I saw Turks misuse them very frequently, many Iranian girls used by Turkish men. For poor people in Iran, Istanbul is like a new world, Turks love to insult them but adore their money and women. Turkey was the best Supporter of the Iranian regime, they gave information about the USA to Sepah. The best witness of this is Mr. Reza Zarrab, who was recently arrested by the FBI in Miami on March 19, 2016, he was accused of a number of crimes, that mostly focused on violating US sanctions. Zarrab was only a middleman for acts that never could have been completed without the support of high ranking Iranian and Turkish government officials. Just like it is unfeasible that Turkey’s support of ISIS could have gone on without RTE’s fully informed consent. I would like to ask RTE where Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is hiding, as I’m sure he would know. Strategically Turkey would be an ideal place for Al Baghdadi to hide.

 

I hope we can start to research about those who were killed by Turks in Turkey.

 

Consul Roger Short was killed in the suicide bombing in 2003, carried out by suicide bombers that were linked to Al Qaeda, but some managed to escape the Turkish authorities grasp, although some military officials were later accused of the crime. Around the same period, there was also an attack made on a synagogue. More recently in 2017 a protest turned violent and resulted in damage one of the few remaining synagogues in Istanbul.

 

Many times Turks swore at me, calling me names like Dirty Jewish, Dirty Capitalist, French Racist. The Turkish intelligence service was the worst, they were angry about why I sent reports to the UN and various international organizations. Turks think that only they should be given jurisdiction over anything that happens to happen in Turkey. Like the poor Persian poet Rumi Mevlana, all of his poems were written in Farsi, but Turks say that he was a Turk, he lived in an area which is now a part of Turkey, Konya, but he never wrote in Turkish.But no one dares to talk about the truth.

 

Konya, the city where he is buried also has Turkey’s highest rate of alcoholism, which is very strange because it is nearly impossible to find a beer there. If you order alcohol people will be angry. Rumi wrote poetry about wine and alcohol, unlike other texts at the time, he began all his poems by talking about poetry and the flute rather than mentioning anything about religion. His teachings are not about any one religion but rather about humanity, but if you look in Turkey, many extremely conservative cults occurred around his teachings, that profess to be his only true followers. Some  Sufism moved to Turkey and their kids called Alavi .who are different on some side but don’t know anything about Rumi, about Sama

In Konya, they changed everything about Mevlana’s teachings and showed his teachings as being a part of radical Islam. If anyone studied about the original Sama, they could understand the difference.

Turks are professionals about using different cultures and calling it their own. Even about fast food. McDonald’s in Turkey is Turkish Version of McDonald. Also clothing ..about books and movie, they don’t have any respect for copyright and Turkish communists believed when they steal anything from a foreigner, it is not problems.

 

With regard to politics, they have what one might call a warped meaning of freedom. Also, their Communists have mixed Marx’s philosophies with Ataturk and the Ottoman empire. Most of them believe that the Armenian genocide was merely an act of self-defense, and they have no guilt about atrocities committed by their nation.

 

The December 2016 assassination of the Russian Ambassador to Turkey, occurred at an art exhibition featuring photography by Turks of Russia, which was already going to make positive publicity for Turkey. There was never even such an event during the cold war, it was a great tragedy in the history of diplomacy. This exhibition turned out to be a glory for Turkish police and Turkish art alike. Even in the Cold war, the west never assassinated a diplomat.

 

Another tragedy in Turkey was the what befell former BBC journalist and UN worker Jackie Sutton. The former BBC journalist was found dead inside Ataturk airport, she was found hanging by her shoelaces in Ataturk airport. Without a doubt, Turkish intelligence service was behind her death.

 

MIT requested that Neda work for them,  finally giving her an ultimatum of being returned to Iran if she did not comply with their orders. For Amin returning to Iran would be equivalent to a death sentence as she had worked with an Israeli news agency, and would be accused of treason.  Finally in 2107 Turks began the process to deport her, and labeled her as a Mossad agent. UNHCR essentially washed its hands of her, luckily Amin was able to take refuge in Israel. Time of Israel English editor in chief David Horowitz stepped up to the plate and helped. She was even welcomed by Israeli ministers.

 

They even asked me if I was working for Mossad because I knew people who were working for Times of Israel. When MIT asked me this I replied, “First you thought I was working for the CIA now this?”. From their perspective, every American is working for the CIA and every Jew is working for Mossad, they are simply paranoid.

 

I used to ask the street cats in Istanbul. “Are you working for the CIA?”. Since all Turks think that Americans are working with CIA.

 

I was in Turkey when the Coup happened with my British friend, from the beginning we were sure that it was not a real Coup, but a performance by RTE. Some of my friends commented that Turkey is a country where Coups happen all the time. I said, “The worst coup in this country was when Erdogan destroyed the military.” After the coup, Erdogan’s supporters were in the street, and they were so angry with westerners. Even in the metro they swore at my friends and grabbed their asses, it was at this time that we saw Turkey’s true-face. After viewing this harassment,

I promised myself that in any way, I would show all facts to the world. I should mention, Turks are not only enemies of the west, they also hate Jews and Arabs.

 

In the beginning of the Turkish republic, they replaced the Islamic call to prayer which is typically recited in Arabic, to one in Turkish. Ataturk is the second god for Turks after Allah and for some of them, he is more Important than Allah! Later their religious officials said that it was not possible, even though they look down on Arabs, they hear Arabic 5 times a day. I heard the call to prayer in many countries, but the Turkish version is the angriest version. In this time Turks are using Islam as a weapon, I’m sure they don’t believe in it like other Muslim countries, it is more a matter of tradition. Some of my Turkish models posed Nude then said, “Don’t show my photos”.

 

Part of my research encompassed sexual life in Turkey. Most Turkish women hated their men and most of the Turkish men cheat on their wives with either prostitutes or foreigners. For many of them, nothing is better than a Russian girl. All Turkish men can die for them. I met one morbidly obese American woman who was 56 but had a  30 old boyfriend, Bodrum is full of old British women who find love with Kurdish waiters.

 

In Turkey, people have virtually no sex education or knowledge, everything that they learn come from porn. Most of the Turkish women that we interviewed complained of being unhappy in their sex lives, and most men were trying to find foreign women.

 

We interviewed several students at the American University in Istanbul, and although the university was founded by the United States, many students are radical and hate America. There was not any control by US Consulate,

 

When we went to the US consulate, we saw that the security officer was speaking only Turkish no English when we tried to enter the consulate. I said can you speak French, they said, “No here is the US Consulate, so I asked why are you speaking Turkish then?” None of them seemed to know but they were all very proud to be doing so.

The Turkish language itself is a slush of Arabic, Persian, and French although with the founding of the Turkish Republic the Latin alphabet was implemented. Many Turks regard this as a major point of modernization.

 

Ataturk himself was a soldier in the Ottoman army in WW1 when Turkey was allied with the Germans, Turkey also supported Germany when Nazism had gained strength and as Hitler rose to power. In WW1 T. E. Lawrence destroyed the ottomans while fighting with the Arabs, but you will never hear about this in Turkish history. Lawrence worked as a normal aircraftman while serving in the Royal Air Force, but his strategic acumen proved to be invaluable for the British Army. After WW2 the United States began its friendship with Turkey and made the Horrific error of allowing Turkey to enter NATO, where Incirlik would eventually be constructed.

The relationship formed with Turkey from NATO never benefited the EU or the USA, even in War with Iraq, Turkey betrayed the United States, many Americans lost their lives because of the Turk’s actions. Turkey sold US Army to Saddam Hussein, then to ISIS. Even during the Iran-Iraq war, Turkey supported Saddam. Unfortunately, most people around the world don’t have valid, but everyday people are raped, or their possessions are stolen, with the cooperation of the Turkish police or Intelligence service. Hopefully, we can Stop another Terrorist attack like September 11th from ever happening again, but this is not a goal that Turkey can ever be helpful in.

 

Recently citing ridiculous charges and accusations of Coup involvement and violating their constitution, Turkey has issued arrest warrants for several American scholars and ex-CIA officers. Graham E. Fuller former CIA station chief. And vice chairman of the National Intelligence Council at the CIA. The Turks even went so far as to accuse Mr. Rostambaksh of supporting the CIA.

 

It is hard to believe that Turkey can dare to spread its internal witch hunt that started even before it’s pseudo-coup. Turks attacked the US embassy, US consulate, and American citizens, that being said, Americans are the number one target for attack in Turkey. That being said, Turks are famous as Drug Dealers, and Turkey is the door to Europe for illegal opioids, I have sources who were working as couriers between Turkey and Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.

An additional glory for Turkish history is that one of London’s most infamous drug dealers is a Turk.

 

Mr. Rostambakhsh said that after seeing the Swastika, the Turkish flag that reminds him of genocide most, there were millions of Armenians who were killed and the Kurds who have been tormented by Turks. Turkey and Pakistan are mirror images of one another in complementary colors, and Pakistan assisted in the founding of Turkey. This didn’t happen accidentally, and Turkey has a very close relationship with Pakistan. Bin Laden was in Pakistan too, and there is a deep relationship between Turkish Intelligence service and Pakistan, even when I was in New York one Pakistani followed me and recorded a video of me. The first sign of Turkey’s influence in New York came from a Pakistani. We know that Al Qaeda had a base in Turkey and that many actions of Turkey came under suspicion when 9/11 happened. We hope that sharing this information will help to prove that Turks were supporting Al Qaeda.

 

Smugglers in Turkey offer a one way trip to the USA by ship for the low price of 30 thousand dollars, they do so with the encouragement of Turkish authorities, who enjoy a slice of the pie. The real problem is the potential of terrorists entering the United States. Throughout history Turks were regarded as pirates on the sea and pillagers on the land, sending migrants into the civilized world is a new form of assault.

 

Turkey has the longest standing application for EU membership in the history of the Union, thankfully there is no plan of acceptance in sight. It’s a common joke in Turkey that EU membership would mean giving up certain beloved foods like Kokorec, sauteed animal innards and Raw Kofte that includes raw meat, the fact of the matter is that culinary oddities are the least of Europe’s reservations about Turkey. When France blocked Turkey’s application, RTE cried Islamophobia, it is far less likely that religion was a factor, and far more likely that the seemingly endless list of human rights abuses and corruption in Turkey are the main problems. When the German parliament acknowledged the Armenian genocide, Turkish members of the parliament who voted in favor received countless threats. Turks even called the Dutch ‘Nazis’, it seems in the case of the Armenian genocide that Turkey has shortsightedly forgotten its own history of allying with Hitler.

 

One life stolen for things like heritage, faith, ethnicity or anything else that one can’t control, is an unthinkable horror, which might be what makes genocide such a hard thing for us to fully comprehend. Germany committed one of the greatest atrocities in the history of the world with the Holocaust, but in today’s Germany, there is no one who will condemn the holocaust faster than a German millennial. It is nearly impossible to find such a reaction in Turkey, about the Armenian genocide, instead, you will hear a lot of conspiracy theories and victim blaming. There is a mirror today between some of the behaviors of Nazi Germany with the jews, as Turkey’s institutional treatment of its minorities like the Jews, the Armenians, and the Kurds. There were many who lost their lives in the holocaust, not for a faith that they even practice, but for the blood that flowed in their veins, and the heritage they happened to have. Practicing Jews who went to synagogues would not have even accepted them as Jewish, say if they had a Jewish father and a gentile mother, none the less they would be killed. The same was true for Armenians who were literally crucified at the hands of the Turks, and the Kurds who are judged today for their heritage.

 

Rostambakhsh had Jewish heritage, and in the time that he was residing in Turkey he reached out to the Jewish Agency, who promised to send him a DNA test but never did. One man named Asher spoke with him and Amin on several occasions, Ashed claimed to work for the Jewish Agency, but never assisted either of them in getting information about their Jewish heritage. Later on, Turkish Intelligence Service asked Rostambakhsh whether he was Jewish or not as if it would be a crime to be a Jew. He said that no matter what religion a person has, it can’t solve any problems for them. Later they asked what Rostambakhsh thought about RTE, he said that Turkey’s political choices are none of his business, although every person with a brain knows that RTE is a mentally deranged terrorist and dictator.

 

When MIT interrogated Bennett and Schultz there were delighted to hear that the two were not interested in Turkey’s politics. Indeed someone should call Turkish intelligence service, ‘stupidity’ service. If it was not their business why did MIT ask?

 

Turkey is professional about seducing foreigners with a few nights of Raki and a Bosphorus view, that is why many of the foreigners you meet who have been to Turkey will rush to its defense so quickly. During my research, I used different reporters with different nationalities. When a Persian asks a Turk about the USA, most of them recite a jumble of the words, “Stupid, Capitalist, Imperialist” along with a flurry of conspiracy theories. That being said, the same people are also ready to wait in line for hours in line at the nearest US Consulate or Embassy in hopes of getting a selfie in Times Square, or for the ‘upper’ classes, being able to travel to the US to give birth to US citizens who will never even know the meaning of living in a free society.

If a westerner talks with a Turk about Iran, they would hear things like. “Uncivilized” along with a number of judgemental statements about radical Islam, in which the Turk will try to assure whoever he is talking to that Turkey is not a ‘dirty Muslim country’.

 

After all the Syrians came into Turkey, it was very common to hear Turks talking about how hospitable and kind they had been to their Syrian brothers and sisters, of course, the Syrian Kurds who were barred at the border when Kobane was burning never got to hear this, and I scarcely expect that they ever felt it. Turks would go on and on to Syrians about how Iran and the USA were their enemies, and Turkey was the only true ally of the Syrian people. However, the Syrian population who had already lived through horrors many of us can scarcely imagine, Syrians were able to understand the true state of things. Syrians knew that Assad was supported by the Iranian regime, and Assad had allowed the country to deteriorate enough that the North could be terrorized by ISIS. Syrians knew that Turkey was supporting ISIS and that Iran was as evil as ISIS. There were Syrian journalists who gave their lives to prove that ISIS is not an enemy of Turkey or Iran, and their only goal is to shatter human lives.

 

This film was made over the course of 3 years in Turkey and my life was threatened for it. Many times the police stopped my crew and I. Now local police in Albany New York who have a connection with MIT are also trying to stop this documentary from being published. Why? Because one German American farmer accused this project of victimizing Turkish society. Iran’s Revolutionary Guard even tried to intimidate Mr. Rostambakhsh’s family when he reported about ISIS’s activities in Turkey. Turkish intelligence Service sent false information to Iran’s government to try and cause problems for him. Iran’s trust for Turkey is nearly implicit since Turkey did so much to help smuggle goods into Iran which sanctions from the USA were in place, but Turkey supported Saddam during the Iran-Iraq war. There are many other issues like this, that at face value seem to be completely illogical.

 

A local newspaper that published a story on Rostambakhsh and Bennett basically avoided all the facts in the article that they wrote. They falsified information about Mr. Rostambakhsh’s legal process in coming to the USA and wrote nothing about when they were interrogated, the death threats that they had received, or the documents that they found linking Turkey to ISIS. For many people, such a story would be completely incomprehensible, but these are the facts.

Rostambakhsh had saved the lives of 3 Americans by the time he moved to the United States, they are only alive because of him when met the Schultz family who were relatives of Bennett did everything in their power to cause problems for him. It was that very family that tried to cause problems for him and said he was making trouble for Turkey, they conveniently forgot that Turkish authorities wanted to kill their grandchild. When he went to give information to the local FBI, they asked him what his religion was. He said that he believed in God. Then they asked him what Mosque he was going to. He replied saying that he had been in a synagogue the week before, and had Jewish heritage but basically had not religion. To my dismay, their idiotic behavior mirrored that of MIT. In the United States, no religion should be a crime, or it cannot be a truly free society, only intolerance should be intolerable.  Personally, I do not identify with any religion either, but throughout all the mess and confusion of the different facts we found, “You shall know the truth and truth will set you free” stayed in the back of my mind all the time. The only way that the free world will ever be free from its inability to successfully analyze the terrorist and extremist society will be to understand the truth, however ugly that might be.
