Merkel to miss vote as Turkey pressures Germany not to recognize Armenian genocide


German Chancellor Angela Merkel will miss a vote on whether to label the killings of around 1.5 million Armenians by Ottoman Turks during the First World War as genocide. The German parliament is set to weigh in on the resolution on Thursday.

At the moment, this vote is due in the morning or at lunchtime and as things stand the chancellor will not take part in the vote in the German Bundestag because she has public appointments,” spokeswoman Christiane Wirtz said on Wednesday, as cited by Reuters.

Although Merkel will not be attending, the chancellor has already indicated that she is in favor of the resolution.

She told me this morning that she sided with her parliamentary group,” Wirtz said when answering a question regarding whether Merkel approved the resolution to recognize the Armenian genocide, according to AFP.

Her stance is supported by Armenian President Serzh Sargsyan, who has urged German politicians not to be influenced by Turkish rhetoric.

I am sure: the politicians in the Bundestag see it the same way and will not allow themselves to be intimidated,” Sargsyan told the German tabloid Bild, Reuters reported. “If one makes compromises for short-term political interests, then one ends up doing so again and again. And that is bad for Germany, that is bad for Europe and the world,” he added.

By skipping the vote, the German head of state will be extricating herself from a potentially tricky political situation, as Turkey has been putting pressure on Berlin to reject the resolution. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has already warned that relations between the two countries will suffer if Germany recognizes the mass killings of Armenians as genocide.

Former German intelligence officer Rainer Rupp told RT that the Turkish president was guilty of “gross interference,” and pressuring the German parliament would not be tolerated.

If Erdogan thinks he can deal with the German parliament the same way he deals with the Turkish parliament, he is dead wrong. In fact, even members of parliament who were cautious before, think they should not give in to Erdogan’s or Turkish pressure on this,” Rupp said.

Merkel has been accused of being soft on Ankara’s human rights abuses because of her desire to stem the flow of migrants entering Europe, which a deal recently struck with Turkey is supposed to alieve.


she is running from truth..

  2. Freemasonry, Traditionalism and the Neo-Caliphate

    The two principle organizations behind the revolt were created by Jamal Afghani: a nationalist organization called Nationalist Liberal Party, which was assisted by Scawen Blunt, and the Mazzini-inspired Young Egypt. Both were united in their membership in Afghani’s French Masonic lodges.

    When Afghani founded Young Egypt, it was mainly composed of members of the Young Turks, a Masonic political party, also known as the Committee of Union and Progress (CUP), who were the primary agents for the overthrow of the Ottoman caliphate, and inspired by the ambitions of Pan-Turksim. Pan-Turkism was first called for in the 1860s by a Hungarian Zionist named Arminius Vambery (1832-1913), an agent for Lord Palmerston, who had become an adviser to the Ottoman Sultan.[19] Vambery was inspired by Alexander Csoma de Körös, who was an important source for Blavatsky, and the first in the West to mention Shambhala, which he regarded as the origin of the Turkish people, and which he situated in the Altai mountains and Xinjiang.

    Vambery’s reputation in England as an expert on Muslims began with his publication of Arminius Vambery: His Life and Adventures, about his travels throughout the Middle East and Central Asia disguised as a dervish between 1862-64. Vambery also chronicled the strange vampire and other legends of the Balkans, and knew author and Golden Dawn member Bram Stoker, to whom he acted as his consultant on Transylvanian culture. The character of Professor Van Helsing in Stoker’s novel, Dracula, is said to be based on Vambery.

    The Young Turks were created in the 1890s by a prominent Sephardic Jewish family in Ottoman Salonika (modern Thessaloniki, Greece) and an official of the Italian B’nai B’rith, named Emmanuel Carasso. Carasso was also the grand master of an Italian masonic lodge there called “Macedonia Resurrected.” The lodge was the headquarters of the Young Turks, and all the top Young Turk leadership were members. The Italian masonic lodges in the Ottoman Empire had been set up by a follower of Mazzini named Emmanuel Veneziano, who was also a leader of the European affiliate of the B’nai B’rith, as well as the Alliance Israëlite Universelle.[20]

    Abdul Hamid II, the Ottoman Sultan, was overthrown in 1908 in a military coup carried out by the Young Turks, who seized power over the Empire. While in power, the Young Turks ran several newspapers including The Young Turk, of which Zeev Jabotinsky was the editor. Jabotinsky was the founder of Revisionist Zionism, on which the policy of the Zionist terrorist faction the Irgun was based, and helped form the Jewish Legion of the British army in World War I. He was educated as a young man in Italy, and later described Mazzini’s ideas as the basis for the Zionist movement. Jabotinsky arrived in Turkey shortly after the Young Turks seized power, to take over the paper. The paper was owned by a member of the Turkish cabinet, but it was funded by the Russian Zionist federation, and managed by the B’nai B’rith.[21]

    Turkish nationalism based on the pseudoscientific race theories of Europe had become the guiding ideology of the Young Turks.[22] From the middle of the nineteenth century, the British had worked to develop an alliance between several leading Sufi orders in Turkey, such as the Bektashi who had strong associations with the crypto-Jewish community of the Dönmeh, as well as the Naqshabandi, and the Scottish Rite Freemasons of Afghani and his followers.[23]

    The vote was almost unanimous in supporting the resolution with just one MP voting against and another abstaining. The move was largely expected and was supported by German Chancellor Angela Merkel. However, the German leader was forced to skip the vote due to prior commitments.
