According to Walid Shoebat, former PLO terrorist, the world needs to keep a close eye on a NATO member nation: Turkey! Restoring the Islamic caliphate that fell in 1924 with the collapse of the Ottoman Empire seems to be the goal of Turkey's leader Tayyip Recep Erdogan.
"Erdogan is saying 1.5 billion Muslims are waiting for the Turkish government to arise. This is pretty scary. Turkey rules only 70 million people so why are they talking about 1.5 billion Muslims?" continued Shoebat, who has written, "For God or For Tyranny: When Nations Deny God's Natural Law" as well as "God's War on Terror."
"Erdogan has made the statements, and he's impacting a youth movement in Turkey that is calling for the glory days of the Turkish rule through the Caliphate. Let's not forget the history," he said.
"It was Turkey that lost the power of Islam when the Caliphate was dismantled and Shariah law was no longer the law of the land," Shoebat said.
"In 1924, the Caliphate was dismantled by the West, and this is why Muslims hate the West. Americans don't understand why Muslims hate us so much. In 1928, four years later, the Muslim Brotherhood was born. This is the umbrella of all the Muslim terrorist organizations," he said.
