Who is who in Turkey
Who are the Pakratids?
Pakratids or Bagratids are a special kind of Jewish community that had been under cover of Armenian and Georgian identities throughout the centuries. Pakratids also used some other fake identities such as Syrian Orthodox, Abkhazian, Nestorians, and Ossetians. After Muslims conquered the Anatolia and Caucasus, Pakratids pretended to be Turks and Kurds. More
"This country has witnessed to the high presence and manifestation of Turkish identity despite underestimation of its power, and underappreciation of its values by others. This country has been the cradle of the Turk for more than 7 thousand years. Sometimes this cradle has been shaken by potent winds and let the child get washed up by the rain. Initially this child seemed to get frightened of thunderstorms, hurricanes and typoons. However, the child got used to imtemperance of the nature, and became the son of it by the time. After that, Turk was everything the sun, wind, rain and thunderstorm. Yes, this is what the Turk exactly is, he is thunderstorm that shakes the world, and he is the sun that enlightens the world."
Turks have played a very critical role very in the formation of the world history and founded a great number of states whose lands reached from Asia to Europe, from Caucasus to North Africa. As it is strikingly stated in an eminent Turkish adage ¨Turks do not have any friends or allies other than other Turks?, Turkish Nation in its 4000 years old history has been betrayed numerous times by the outsiders as well as insiders.
In the early Turkish history, charming Chinese princesses married to Turkish khans meddled into the domestic politics and destabilized the country, after Turks expanded towards the West, Roman Empire, and eventually settled in the Anatolian Peninsula, similar political games started to be set up by the Byzantine to weaken the brotherhood bonds among the Turkish sultans and bring them to blows over the throne.
Incorrigible enemies of Turks were never willing to cease their plots and intensified their actions towards taking the advantage of existing cleavages that exist in modern Turkish society such as radical leftists vs. radical rightists, Turkish Chauvinists vs. Kurdish Chauvinists, Alleviates vs. Sunnis, Seculars vs. Conservatives.
Ill-intentioned centers of power, thanks to their strategic plans and programs that they have meticulously pursued over the centuries, could infiltrate into the leadership mechanisms of all these seemingly opposing political and social groups and planted the seeds of hatred and antagonism. In actuality, neither those infiltrated into the leadership of Alleviates or the Leftist movements, nor those infiltrated into the leadership of Sunni and Rightist movements were the genuine representatives or advocates of their cause. When a closer scrutiny is paid to family background of those people who have played pivotal roles in the eruption and sustenance of the polarization in Turkey, differences between the real personality features they have and the personality features that they want the public to think they have get noticed. This hypocrisy is more serious and severe and cannot be normalized by simply referring to the elusive structure of politics.
Since, none of the ways worked out as they had wished; they had to apply to more complicated strategies that predicate upon a deep sociological analysis of Turkish society. After understanding the fact that, it was not possible to reach some objectives through direct confrontation with the religious majority and wanted to conquer the fortress from inside. To that end, they would exploit the religious sensibility of the masses as well as their aspiration for a religious leader. The plan has been bloomed and blossomed by the rise of ¨Political Islam? in Turkish political system. They artfully enlarged the area of religious freedoms to persuade the conservative masses about their sincerity and divert their attention from what they were actually doing to what they seemed to have been doing. After guaranteeing people’s allegiance and unconditional support, they started putting their detrimental Anti-Turkish plans into practice by which they were hoping to endanger and weaken the integrity and unity of Turkish nation.
