Erdogan: Manbij Deal Is Delayed But Not Dead

On October 11, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told reporters that the Turkish-U.S. agreement on the northern Syrian city of Manbij is delayed “but not completely dead.”

“There is a delay but [the deal] is not completely dead. U.S. Secretary of State Pompeo and Defense Secretary Mattis say they will take concrete steps,” Erdogan was quoted as saying by the Turkish Hurriyet newspaper.

Turkey and the U.S. announced last May that they had reached a roadmap on Manbij, which is controlled by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). As a part of the roadmap, Kurdish fighters supposedly withdrew from the city and joint patrols by Turkish military and U.S. troops were set to begin.

However, other steps of the roadmap were never fulfilled by the U.S. and its allies. Some of these steps were to form a joint local administration in Manbij and to step down military support for the SDF in the region.

As a result, Erdogan said last month that the US failed to comply with its responsibilities in the framework of the Turkish-US roadmap on Manbij. The Turkish President even claimed that Kurdish fighters didn’t withdraw from the city.

The Manbij deal will likely collapse eventually, if the U.S. continues its unlimited support to the SDF. The Kurdish-dominated group is viewed as a threat by Turkey, which is one of the key NATO member states.

    There’s a fundamental difference here between Turkey’s view and the US view of what the future of it’s neighbors and the region will look like. Turkey’s view despite regional disagreements, is based in the region’s negative view towards Israel and Jews and a desire for peace, strength and prosperity. The US view is based on it’s negative view towards the region and Muslims. The US view, which they constantly lie about, is that they want a better future for the region. When it’s obvious that the US is fully supportive of the Yinon plan to keep the region mired in perpetual war, terrorism and poverty for Israel.

    The solution that I’m suggesting is an end to Israel and an end to Jews on this planet in a humane lawful manner by dejudifying Palestine, the US, and our planet to create a much better future for humanity without Jews who have been a curse on the world for 3,000 years. Which is why Jesus Christ and some of the ETs that I’m in contact with where and are vocal anti Judaics.

    The West Bank barrier wall and Gaza fence should be torn down to help with the dejudification and unification of Palestine. The UN mandated Palestine protection force armed with nuclear weapons capable of disarming the IDF should be formed, of which Turkey can be a part. And the IDF cleared out of the occupied territories, by force if necessary. Military reinforcements should be deployed to Jordan to protect it from the Jews. Once Palestine has been admitted to the UN as a full member the rest of the UN resolutions, such as the right of return can be implemented to complete the dejudification of Palestine at the ballot box if necessary, so that it’s voted out of existence and replaced at the UN with a unified Palestine.

    Judaism should be outlawed in the US and the synagogues and yeshivas permanently closed and demolished. A UN resolution condeming Judaism as an evil pedophile mass rape cult should be passed and assistance provided UN member nations with outlawing Judaism and dejudifying their jurisdictions as part of eliminating and extincting Judaism on our planet. Former Jews who are law abiding should be allowed to go about their lives without discrimination. Those who break the law should be prosecuted on an as needed basis.
