Should Erdogan cut ties with Putin?

Posted by KJ Vids on Friday, March 2, 2018

Ties between Russia and Turkey are back on track, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said as he met with Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan in the southern city of Sochi for talks set to focus on the Syrian conflict.

“I want to note at the beginning of our meeting that our relations can be considered practically completely restored,” Putin was quoted as saying by the Russian state news agency TASS on November 13 2017.

Relations between Russia and Turkey soured badly after Turkish jets shot down a Russian warplane near the Syrian border in November 2015, but Putin and Erdogan have taken steps to mend ties since then.

Along with Iran, they have sponsored a series of negotiations on the Syria conflict in Kazakhstan’s capital, Astana.

Addressing reporters in Istanbul on November 13 before departing for Sochi, Erdogan described Putin as “my dear friend.”

The Kremlin has said that Putin and Erdogan plan to discuss regional and international issues including the “joint fight against terrorism” and the efforts to end the more than six-year war in Syria, Turkey’s southern neighbor.

They are also expected to discuss prospects for increasing bilateral trade and cooperation in the energy sector, it said.

Erdogan said he would discuss with Putin more technical details on plans to buy S-400 surface-to-air missile systems from Russia.

Putin and Erdogan last met in Ankara on September 28. After the talks, the two presidents said they agreed to closely cooperate on ending Syria’s civil war.

Russia has given crucial military and diplomatic backing to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government throughout the war, which began with a government crackdown on protesters and has killed hundreds of thousands of people.

Should Pakistan immediately stop taking billions of dollars of funds, aids, loans (and every other code name for blackmail) from the United States of America?

Posted by KJ Vids on Wednesday, December 20, 2017

While announcing the national security approach, Trump asked Pakistan to take “decisive action” against terrorist groups operating from its soil, adding, “We have made clear to Pakistan that while we desire continued partnership, we must see decisive action against terrorist groups operating on their territory. And we make massive payments every year to Pakistan. They have to help.”

Since the time of former General Musharraf, Pakistan has provided the United States unabated support in her so called war on terror. Unsurprisingly the biggest victim of this war has arguably been Pakistan with thousands of civilian casualties.

Before Pakistan joined the war on terror, suicide bombings and insurgency was unheard of to the wider Pakistani population. But now the term “Deshat Gard” is a household term. The war on terror has led to the devastation of millions of people whose lives have been caught up and implicated in America’s geopolitical games due to the political, economic and social turmoil created in the country because of it.

Sadly, the rulers of Pakistan have failed to take a courageous stance against America whilst others are taking advantage of America’s waning influence in the World. China has been able to push back America from it’s region and Russia is showing more assertiveness in the periphery of Eastern Europe.

The good news is that, majority of Pakistani’s appear to believe that America is the primary cause of this trouble and as our poll suggests majority clearly want Pakistan to sever the economic dependency on America that the Pakistani establishment has foolishly created.

With a young, disenfranchised and Islamically inclined population of Pakistan, it will be interesting to see if they will be able to take control of their own political fate in the future.

Pakistan's Geopolitical Strength

Pakistan has been blessed with an advantageous geography that could provide it with significant political leverage in the international arena, if it wished. The outlook of strategists in Pakistan should be that America and China needs them, not the other way around.

Should Erdogan cut political, economic and military ties with Israel and America for crossing a "Red Line"

Posted by KJ Vids on Tuesday, December 5, 2017

We decided to run this poll following the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital by Donald Trump. Following the announcement, the Turkish leader called Trump’s recognition of the holy city as a ‘red line’ for Muslims.

With Trump disregarding such warnings, the Turkish president used his position as the current chairman of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to call a summit of the group.

 

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has accused the United States of ignoring Palestinian claims to Israeli-occupied East Jerusalem and “trampling on international law”, has invited leaders from more than 50 Muslim countries to agree on a response.

Albeit years of rhetoric, Turkey in 2016 agreed to resume full diplomatic relations with Israel after the crisis triggered by the deadly storming by Israel of a Turkish ship seeking to break the Gaza blockade in 2010.

Trade and energy deals have prospered increasing year to year. Cooperation has resumed, most significantly in energy.

We wanted to see if our fans believed that Erdogan should follow through on his critical words with political action. The result was a resounding “Yes”

KJ Poll Result – 80% of Muslims believe Saudi Arabia DOES NOT represent Islamic Governance

On November 20th 2017, KJ Vids ran a poll amongst it’s 270,000 Facebook fans and asked the question “Do you believe Saudi Arabia is representative of Islamic Governance?”

We received a total of 7,000 votes and the results were a vehement “NO” with 80% of people voting no to the question and only 20% voting yes.

Do you believe Saudi Arabia is representative of Islamic Governance?

Posted by KJ Vids on Monday, November 20, 2017

We decided to run this poll in light of the chaos that is currently occurring in Saudi Arabia with Mohammed Bin Salman’s  preparations to take over the throne from his father King Salman.

In the recent weeks, we have seen domestic upheaval in Saudi Arabia, which saw the arrest of princes, ministers and high-profile businessmen carried out by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was seen as a sign to crush dissent under the banner of cracking down on corruption.

More recently, we have begun to see the public normalisation of ties with Israel, albeit the covert relationship that has existed behind the doors for decades. The chief of staff of Israel’s military (IDF) said that his country is ready to share intelligence on Iran with Riyadh.

“With [US] President Donald Trump, there is an opportunity for a new international alliance in the region and a major strategic plan to stop the Iranian threat,” Lt. Gen. Gadi Eisenkot, chief of staff of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF)

“The political changes in Saudi Arabia and the desire to consolidate power is the main reason why these relations with Israel were opened,” said Mahjoob Zweiri, an associate professor with the Gulf Studies Program department at Qatar University.

“These Arab states are motivated by the survival of their regimes, and that is what pushes them to the stronger state in the region,” said Khalil Shaheen, a political analyst based in the West Bank city of Ramallah. It is clear that Washington is playing in the convergence between two of its oldest and closest Mideast allies.

Days before Ibn Salman’s crushing of dissent, Jared Kushner — Trump’s son-in-law was in Saudi Arabia. He reportedly spent late nights talking with Prince Mohammed.

Whilst we are only able to ascertain limited information from our Facebook poll regarding the demographics of the votes, we can certainly say that majority of the votes were from the Muslim World as KJ fan’s demographics are largely from countries including Pakistan, India and Bangladesh that have large populations of Muslims. In addition to this, KJ Vids has, as of today, 11,740 fans from Saudi Arabia itself.

The results are not surprising considering a plethora of violations against Islam and Muslims by the Saudi regime throughout recent decades. It’s logistical support for America’s war on Iraq, it’s war on Yemen and now it’s lust with Trump and normalisation of diplomatic ties with Israel does not go well with Muslims at all.
