Sultan Erdogan is set to be inaugurated today in his second term as president of Turkey and he’s making sure to clean house before it happens:
TIMES OF ISRAEL – President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is to be sworn in for his second term as head of state on Monday, taking on greater powers than any Turkish leader for decades under a new system condemned by opponents as autocratic.
The inauguration in parliament after Erdogan’s June election victory will be followed by a lavish ceremony at his palace attended by dozens of world leaders marking the transition to the new executive presidency system.
He has also pledged to end the state of emergency that has been in place since the failed July 2016 coup and has seen the biggest purge in the history of modern Turkey.
In what appeared to be the final emergency decree issued just one day before the inauguration, 18,632 public sector employees were ordered dismissed including thousands of soldiers and police officers.
What Erdogan is doing here is purging anyone he sees as a threat, just as he’s been doing all along since his phony coup in 2016. But I don’t know that I’ve ever seen so many at one time.
In related news, this was reported last week:
Cem Toker, the former head of libertarian political party the Liberal Democratic Party, has said in an interview on TV channel KRT that Erdoğan is planning to reintroduce the office of the caliphate, a title of symbolic leadership in the Muslim world held by the Ottoman sultans and abolished by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk after the founding of the Turkish republic.
“There will be another referendum in the next four years,” Toker said.
“There is one more referendum left to come. I believe that Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is assertive (on this point). My guess: the caliphate. We will ask the nation, ‘shall we bring back the caliphate or not?’”
Surprised program host Çağlar Çilara responded by asking whether Toker was sure.
“It’s a very, very great possibility, yes,” Toker replied.
Çilara said that ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) figures on the show had often defended the view that the caliphate should be brought back for the sake of the global Islamic community.
I have no doubt that this referendum will come sometime around 2023, the year Erdogan wants to announce his new antichrist Ottoman Empire 2.0. As we’ve told you all along, Erdogan is resurrecting the head with a fatal wound in Revelation 13, otherwise known as the 8th King (or empire) in Revelation 17. It says the 8th “really belongs to the seven and is headed for destruction.” The 7th was the Ottoman Empire which ended (fatal wound) after WWII in 2023/2024.
Of course this is only speculation from Toker, but I’m sure he’s right about it. Buckle up…
