“We are witnessing that terror has changed its structure,” Erdoğan said at a science and technology conference in Ankara.
The July 15 military coup attempt, which has been foiled by a joint effort made by the Turkish people, politicians and police forces, was organized by the FETÖ elements in the Turkish army under the order from the U.S.-based terror leader, Fetullah Gülen.
Gülen and his FETÖ organization had established a parallel state structure by infiltrating the Turkish state institutions, including judiciary, police, spy agency and military.
The FETÖ members had fired on pro-democracy demonstrators with automatic guns, tanks, combat helicopters and f-16 fighter jets on the failed coup night, martyring over 240 and injuring around 2,200 people.
Gülen, who has been living a luxury life in Pennsylvania since 1999 under the full protection of the U.S. and CIA, established an empire of his parallel structure not only in Turkey but dozens other states around the World, including the U.S. itself under the guise of so-called religious schools and charity foundation.
Turkish courts issued an arrest warrant against Gülen, mastermind of the July 15 coup attempt, and justice ministry had demanded US authority to detain Gülen and extradite him to Turkish authority.
Turkey's ex-minister slams EU’s coup response
Turkey was left alone by European leaders for more than one month after a bloody coup attempt, former Turkish Minister of EU Affairs Volkan Bozkırsaid Friday. Bozkır, who is currently an MP for the ruling Justice and Development Party, spoke at the Washington-based Middle East Institute's 7th Annual Conference on Turkey. “Turkish people cannot understand why for 45 days we were left alone in Turkey without any visit, any solidarity statement," he said, adding that European leaders began to question Turkey's human right record just days after the July 15 coup attempt.
We know CIA, MOSSAD agents' underwear colors: Gülen
The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Israeli spy agency, MOSSAD, would not harm the Fetullah Terrorists Organization (FETÖ) because of deep ties, the terror leader Fetullah Gülen told his fellowman. One of the detained FETÖ members, who was responsible for the terror group's Colorado state network, told investigators that their leader had deep relations with the two largest spy agencies in the world.
Erdoğan slammed US for not extraditing the terror leader.
“We have sent boxes [of documents to the U.S.] that show his link with the coup and terror group. Why don't you [US] extradite a terror leader who established a Sultanate [in Pennsylvania] over a 400-hector area?” Erdoğan said.
He called on the states where Gülen had established his illegal formation.
“I am calling on the 170 countries, please be cautious. The whole world should be aware of similar terror attacks,” Turkish President said.
FETÖ planned a coup in 1990: Turkish prosecution
Recently emerged evidence has revealed that the coupist Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETÖ), headed by Fetullah Gülen, was planning another coup in 1990. The findings were reached during the investigation in the northern Turkish province of Tokat. Tokat Prosecutor's Office said 22 top military officials, including colonels, lieutenant colonels, who were embedded in the FETÖ terrorist organization, had met Fetullah Gülen face to face as a part of the meetings of the coup plan.
While speaking on the refugee crisis, Erdoğan said Ankara has been doing its best for around 3 million refugees in Turkey.
During its humanitarian works for refugees, Turkey never looks for political or economic benefits as western countries did, according to the president.
He strongly criticized the European Union, saying the bloc had not fulfilled its pledge to provide 3 billion euros of aid to refugees as part of a Turkey-EU deal last year.
"The year is coming to a close," Erdogan said and added, "They promise, but don't deliver.”
The deal, which aimed to stem refugee flows to Europe, signed in March 2015 has almost completely stopped refugees from setting sail to Greek shores by boat, after thousands had died during their voyage last year.
FETÖ a worse threat than other terror groups: Historian
The Fethullah Terrorist Organization or FETÖ may pose a greater threat to Turkey than any other terrorist group, a prize-winning Princeton University historian argues in a new analysis.“FETÖ, arguably, threatens the integrity of the Turkish state and the health of Turkish democracy more insidiously" than other terrorist groups, says Michael Reynolds, associate Professor at Princeton's Department of Near Eastern Studies, in an article for the Foreign Policy Research Institute, a U.S.-based think-tank, on FETÖ's network and its July 15 defeated coup.
US to respond to Turkey on Gülen's extradition soon: Bozdağ
