The concept of TURKEY
Dear friend, have a nice day, have a nice sunday.
Today, June 23, is a hot Sunday in Istanbul. The topic we will talk about today is the concept of Turkey. Of course, we will talk about this in comparison with China.
When we look at China, it appears as the world’s superpower and America’s only scourge. Like us, China has had many dynasties and states, but the Chinese never say that we have established so many states, so many dynasties ruled us. They say only one thing, “China”. They constantly place the Chinese brand in the minds of the world. This is how they became a super economic power. They have been implementing a conscious plan in this regard for 50 years since 1978.
When we look back at us, we have established 16 states, Ottomans, Seljuks, Ghaznavids, Karakhanids, Göktürks, Huns, Uyghurs, states, dynasties, this is a mess. Why don’t we come out of this only with the concept of Turkey? What I mean by Turkey is that the Turkish state was founded on three continents. The name of the Ottomans was European Turkey, when you look at the British maps established in Europe, they always write Turkey as the European part, and the Asia Minor “Asia Minor” for the Anatolian part. “Devlet ü Türkiyye” founded by the Mamluks in Africa, and our final state established in Anatolia is the Republic of Turkey, “Turkey”. Now, in the states we have established in Asia, Europe and Africa, there is always an emphasis on Turkey.
What has always been thought for us is that they establish the state and then destroy it. It has been so, these states have destroyed each other. Then, we need to unite the Turkish states, starting from Morocco on the Atlantic Ocean coast to the Pacific coast, under the identity of Turkey, by going beyond the state configurations in the history of the Turkish World, Turkistan style namings and dynastic namings and coming out with a different perspective.
Today, China has a population of 1.5 billion, but Turkey is the leader of the Islamic World, which has 1.5 billion. Turkish communities are in it. Then we will have brought two equal forces face to face. The yield of this; Just as “Made in China” is written on the back of a product, what we need to do is to spread the “Made in Turkey” branding, in these 3 continents, which is actually 4 continents. If we count India as a continent, because there are 5 states, that is also is a subcontinent. Creating a great power by combining the products in these 4 continents under the name of Turkey brand will be to create the perception of one Turkey.
GREAT TURKEY” concept
My dear friend,
I would like to share my thoughts on the concept of “Great Turkey” with you. The concept of “Great Turkey” was used for the first time in our country by one of the politicians, Süleyman Demirel. He also has a book titled “Great Turkey”. He always described Turkey as great.
When we look at today, can we describe Turkey as great, this is a question mark. In the concept of “Great Turkey” that Süleyman Bey meant, he was talking about Turkey with a large industry, he was talking about a Turkey with self-sufficient agriculture. In the pre-1980 period, the word industrialization was a key concept in Turkey’s agenda, and Turkey’s agriculture was self-sufficient. Can we see them today?
Also, in the 1990s, another great one began to be mentioned. But it was Clinton America that described it as great, and Greater China brought up the concept of “Greater China”. Now, by Greater China here, he meant the Chinese residing in that region of China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Macao, and South East Asia in countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines. We see this greatness as real today. China is now “Greater China”, “Greater China”.
After the Bush administration, which took over the United States in the 2000s, America abandoned this concept. This concept was only relevant with Clinton. Now China now buys energy in yuan. Abandoning the US dollar, bringing the silk road to life, then China is great.
When we look back at Turkey now, for Turkey to be great, it must be as inclusive as China. What is meant by inclusiveness, how will “Great Turkey” be filled? In other words, I am talking about being like China, being in an influential position in the world. What I can see here as “Great Turkey” is Asia, India, Iran, Turkistan, where it took place for thousands of years in the countries where history has a legacy, then the Mughal Empire in India, the 3 continents where the Ottoman Empire is the legacy, Greater Asia, Africa, and Europe.
The first state known as Turkey today, the State of Turkey, was established in Egypt.
Great Turkey covers the borders of the Muslim world. It is not only the borders of the National Pact today, it covers the borders of all Muslim countries and countries where we have historical depth. My point of view is like this.
Greetings and love.
