GLOBAL ATTACKS ON THE ISLAMIC WORLD
The Islamic world, in its geography where it should be sovereign, has been turned to the area of the undeclared, secret, insidious, dirty and asymmetric Third World War. Where the elements of ethnic and sectarian differences within the unitary structures of each Islamic country are made fought with one another.
Armed terrorist organizations; al Qaeda in Afghanistan, Boko Haram in Nigeria, Anti Balaka in Middle Africa, Revolutionary People's Liberation Front (DHKP-C) and Communist /Marxist /Leninist Party of Turkey, PKK, PYD, FETÖ/PYD in Turkey, Al-Nusra Front, DAESH, PYD and HTŞ in Syria, which have drowned Turkey and Islamic geography in blood, tears and turned to debris, operate under the control and support of global powers.
Despite of the advantages they have, Islamic countries have fallen into enormous chaos and disorders through the interference of the imperialist Western states. As a result of this turmoil, the Islamic geography is suffering from a case of destruction and famine. Millions of Muslims are forced to choose between leaving their homes and homelands or left to die. Thousands of Muslims die in different ways on the way of migration, while those who succeed in migration are forced to live in poverty and misery.
According to the data provided from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees 2016, only 5 million Syrian citizens have emigrated. This figure is even higher with unregistered refugees. Syrian refugees have migrated to Turkey (3.644.342)[vii], Iraq (249.726), Jordan (629.128), Egypt (132.275), Lebanon (1.172.753) and other places in North Africa. Regardless Of these figures, there are intensive attempts to migrate to Europe and most of them lost their lives at the Mediterranean Sea. Despite these negativities, the total number of the registered refugees who were transferred to Europe from April 2011 to January 2016 was 935.008 refugees.[viii]
The Third World War continues as an undeclared war against the Islamic countries. After the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, the Muslims who were left without authority, tried to maintain their existence by establishing small states but they lost their unity and togetherness, so they became easy prey for the global powers. The United States, the European Union, France, Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States aim to establish their authority in Islamic countries in order to take over the Islamic geography through carrying out proxy wars (Asymmetrical wars) by terrorist organizations under their control.
