Turkey's AK Party has been working to realize its dreams of an African occupation similar to what it has done in Syria and Iraq. However, it has used soft and strategic tools observers call as "hidden" in the African countries to form a strong environment to expand its influence. Then to control the social life, thought, markets, economy and military status of the most important cities on the continent. A question here poses itself.. Will countries there expel it as did the Kurds in Syria and Iraq, before its roots penetrate even more spreading its plague sharply?
In its "New Ottoman" project, the Justice and Development Party (AKP) carried out an integrated strategy for the region focused on attracting the Muslim world, specifically the Sunni, to realize its national dreams of restoring the empire in its new style in line with the stage and control of the economy and history of the region.
As producing terrorism on the African continent, Turkey claims also to fight it!
In 2006, Turkey hosted a conference for "African clergymen" in conjunction with hosting a conference of the Muslim Brotherhood in the world. The aim was to exploit the religious feelings of the Muslim communities in the continent and to strengthen Turkish incubator through them, as noted by the US website tackling military and defense affairs "Global Security", in 2018, it noted that Turkey through this exploitation aimed at military and political and economic influence, stressing that the countries of the Horn of Africa are in the focus of Turkish targeting, which makes terrorism and claims to combat it since 2005.
The magazine pointed out that Turkey and through its diplomats are mobilizing the Muslims of Africa with its men and its politicians, to make them lobbying groups on their governments to pass their policies in preparation of the occupation in all fields in those countries.
New judicial documents have revealed Turkish support for terrorists on the continent. In January, Nordic Monitor specialized on a movement of extremists, reported that Turkey had transferred hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Somali al-Shabab Movement on the global terrorism list through a Turkish terrorist known as Ibrahim Sin, he had been handed over by the US authorities to Turkey in the past after his arrest in Pakistan, who worked within the Turkish intelligence in the transfer of terrorists to and from Syria since 2011.
Erdogan extends his influence through religion, terrorism and relief in Africa, which is before a new Ottoman occupation ...!
It was the first step of Turkish entry into Africa through religious exploitation and historical memory by playing with the feelings of Muslims on the continent of more than one billion people, thus creating a platform for the industry of terrorism through its groups of businessmen, clergymen, and politicians. Besides, in Iraq and Syria, most of its movements are carried out by religious organizations as well as Turkish humanitarian relief organizations like (IHH and TIKA).
Dozens of documents showed Turkish and Qatari support for the Somali Shabab Movement and Boko Haram in Nigeria, as well as its support for Daesh in Libya and sending dozens of shipments to Somalia, Libya, Ethiopia, Mali and Nigeria, as confirmed by the American newspaper Washington Examiner which revealed the complex relationship between Turkey and terrorist groups in Western Africa, Libya and Mali in January, entitled "It is time to declare Turkey a state sponsor of terrorism."
At least five shipments of Turkish arms have been stopped at Libya's ports, which were sent to Daesh and other terrorist groups over the past few months. The Libyan government has declared that they are fighting the terrorism of Turkey and Qatar in Libya.
As for Nigeria, customs authorities in Lagos seized a shipment of guns and pistols aimed at the Boko Haram terrorist group and confirmed Turkey provided it to this terrorist organization, which US newspapers confirmed as having a direct relationship between the organization and the Turkish government.
Alarmingly ominous is Turkish peaking diplomatic, economic and military activity within the continent!
Having occupied observer position in the African Union in 2005 as and then as a strategic partner of African countries in 2008 and a member of the African Bank, Erdogan with his government began to penetrate at all levels and the first of which diplomatically, where the number of embassies rose to 42 embassies in 2018, while the number of 12 embassies in early 2012, as well as the trade volume, which was 4 billion in 2003, and reached 20 billion dollars in 2018.
On the military level, Turkey specifically targeted Somalia as the gateway to the Horn of Africa as a major geopolitical, military and commercial point on the continent to build its largest overseas base after its base in Qatar at a cost of $50 million to set up the Somali army and build the largest embassy in the continent.
It has occupied it in a very soft and precise manner, after establishing the terrorism in it since the beginning of 2004, represented by Shabab Movement and other local extremist groups, to boost its investments in the country, strengthen its relief societies and compete with the United Nations in the region to be there first and work through it to seize the country in all areas of life, and revive the Turkish goods, language, culture, thought and weapons within the African society almost completely, and declare Somalia in the last stage a state after occupying it under the pretext of saving them from the effects of bloody wars and relief.
Turkish intervention is an international isolation of Africa, which threat no less than what it left in Syria and Iraq
In view of the situation in Somalia and Sudan, as well as Nigeria, those pivotal countries on the continent, and the Turkish intervention has destabilized the depth of the continent and made it a focus of terrorism to ensure full control of the minds of the community such as the occupation of their land at all levels. Not to mention the international and Arab isolation, because of Turkey's strategic features of its policy with the European countries, regional and Arab ones in particular.
As a result of the manufacture and exportation of terrorism, Turkey is working to restore the new Ottoman Empire as it sees itself as a central state that would expand its influence outside its territory and compete with regional countries, employing religion and history to expand its occupation in other Arab, African and Islamic countries.
The Arab and European observers believe that countries such as Egypt, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia need to move in this regard because Turkey is a dangerous country, especially as it has become a state sponsor of terrorism and its leader in every region seeking to expand its influence. Thus, it necessitates intervention to maintain stability, security, and economic and trade balance.
