The Investigative Journal officially launched its uncompromisingly direct and honest talk show from its studios in Times Square New York last week during which award-winning broadcast journalist and anchor Tal Heinrich interviewed former Turkish Police Chief Ahmet S. Yayla who revealed his decision to leave the force after he discovered Turkey was directly funding and supporting Al Qaeda, its affiliates and the Islamic State in Syria over its opposition to Bashar al Assad.
“I had to leave my position because I did not accept what the Erdogan government was asking from me,” Yayla told Heinrich. “In fact, the government kept pressuring me to allow all those jihadis to pass through my city without being stopped or investigated, which I denied. And then, at the end, when he realized I was not going to be working with him to carry out the orders of the Erdogan government through the government in Şanlıurfa, I had to leave my position. I did my best to stop those jihadists but I was not allowed politically.”
The Investigative Journal (TIJ) is headed by CEO Mohamed Fadel Fahmy – an Egyptian-Canadian award-winning journalist and author who has worked extensively in the Middle East – and produced by Driss Sekkat — an international award-winning executive producer and programming launch expert.
TIJ held its official launch in London several weeks ago and its U.S. operation out of New York is the newest addition to the company’s vision and aim of internationalizing the online platform’s dedicated to publishing in-depth investigations that dig to the core of issues that affect the public and its interests.
TIJ’s interview with Yayla for its launch episode sets the tone for the type of hard-hitting journalism that the media publication has started to bring to the world.
Yayla Served as the chief of counterterrorism with the Turkish National Police for 20 years before going into self-imposed exile in Washington, D.C. where he teaches for Georgetown’s Center for Security Studies.
He told TIJ that Turkey began sending arms shipments to jihadists in Syria under the Erdogan government around 2010 and the first group Turkey supported was the Free Syrian Army (FSA).
“After the Arab Spring, the Erdogan government decided to have an extensive role in the conflict and with that, they started to support the jihadists who were fighting against Bashar al-Assad at the time,” referring to the FSA. “But once the Salafi Jihadists started to invade, those strongholds controlled by the Free Syrian Army militias the spectrum changed very fast,” because the FSA were not trained or equipped well and were losing the battle against the Salafi jihadists. “Therefore, they lost their ground very fast. With that, the international community stopped supporting them but Turkey increased its efforts to arm and support those groups. So, the support switched from the Free Syrian Army to the Salafi Jihadists,” included ISSI and Jabhat Al Nusra, or the Al Nusra Front.
Yayla said Erdogan worked directly with Turkish National Intelligence (which is MIT in Turkish) and the director of MIT at the time helped enable Erdogan both in Turkey and internationally. He detailed how the Turkish government intentionally turned a blind eye to jihadists crossing the border from and to Syria.
During the interview, Heinrich also referenced an extensive report by exiled Turkish journalist Abdullah Bozkurt who was able to map out the illegal weaponry sent from Turkey to Syria for use by jihadists and Al Qaeda, and Al Qaeda splinter groups including splinter groups in Iraq. Bozkurt noted in his groundbreaking report for TIJ that “On a weekly average, two or three shipments were delivered under the cover of night by trucks with no record of incoming air cargo at the airport logs. The operation often saw Qatari planes landing with arms in their cargo.”
Yayla revealed to Heinrich how the MIT was working with special agents, independently of the force, to distribute weapons to these Syrian rebel fighters. He added the MIT was also working with trucking companies to distribute weapons from Ankara and then dropping them off in Syria.
“Qatar is a direct supporter of Erdogan’s policies in the region,” Yayla said. “Erdogan and the Emir work together, hand in hand” adding that Qatar is responsible for providing the cash flow for those jihadists.
On a single day, ISIS smuggled anywhere between 50 to more than 100 jihadist militants into Turkey. The secret wiretaps that were revealed as part of Bozkurt’s investigation also revealed how in a one-month period in 2014 alone, 1,440 militants crossed into Syria through Turkey. During this same time period, ISIS smuggled 87 militants back into Turkey from Syria. These numbers and figures only represent one crossing point. Yayla said those numbers are actually much higher when taking into account other crossing points.
These same wiretaps proved that In 2014, the head of Turkish Intelligence Hakkan Fidan said he sent 2000 trucks loaded with weapons to jihadists in Syria after they demanded those weapons. “We sent around 2000 trucks. I will send four men to Syria if necessary. I will fire eight missiles toward Turkey to produce a justification for war. We should attack Suleyman Shah’s tomb.”
Asked why he thinks European countries aren’t pressing Erdogan more, Yayla said “Erdogan became the gatekeeper to ISIS and Al Qaeda for the Europeans and he blackmailed the Europeans through the EU with allowing all those terrorists into Europe. And they knew very well that if Erdogan wanted, he would let those terrorists pass through Turkey’s borders and go to Europe for different kinds of terrorist organizations.
Yayla attributed Erdogan’s support for these Islamists as being in line with his desire to become the leader of the Sunni Islamic world. “And he saw the conflict in Syria as an opportunity to grab that power,” Yayla said, attributing to what some refer to as “neo-Ottomanism.” He added that the second reason for Erdogan’s support of jihadists groups in Syria is because “he saw this as an opportunity to support the Muslim Brotherhood [Ikhwan] internationally, for his international political objectives” since his Salafi view of Islam is in line with the Brotherhood’s. “And if you look at where the Muslim Brotherhood’s centers are established today, they’re all in Turkey and Istanbul.”
He said Erdogan knew that supporting these groups and their ideologies in Syria would mean that he would eventually have control over Syria.
Yayla also referred to a report that was written for the European Union which studied the weapons and explosives of the Islamic State. “In that report we can exclusively see that almost all the IED materials, used by ISIS, were either provided by Turkey or they were purchased from Turkish companies. Even if those materials were not produced in Turkey, Turkish companies purchased them from international companies, brought them to Turkey and then sold them to ISIS. Think about it: ISIS killed thousands of people with its explosives.”

ORWELLIAN: New Rules Allow Patients to be Denied Health Care for Expressing ‘Racist’ or ‘Sexist’ Beliefs in Britain
Big Brother is taking shape rapidly.
New rules are set to go into effect in Britain that will deny health care to people guilty of harboring “racist” or “sexist” sentiments, a decision that could eventually have a chilling effect on free speech in the United Kingdom.
There are laws currently on the books in place to allow healthcare officials in the socialized system to deny care to people who are verbally or physically hostile and aggressive toward them. This will be now expanded to include bullying and discrimination, including any type of racism, sexism and homophobia. This will give broader discretion to NHS officials to deny care to individuals, which could include their political opponents.
“Being assaulted or abused is not part of the job,” Health Secretary Matt Hancock wrote on Tuesday in a message to all NHS staff.
“Far too often I hear stories that the people you are trying to help lash out. I’ve seen it for myself in A&Es, on night shifts, and on ambulances,” he added.
Hancock claims that he is “horrified that any member of the public would abuse or physically assault a member of our NHS staff but it happens too often.”
He says that his office will be working with Crown Prosecution Service to ensure that people who express supposedly hateful views will not only be denied healthcare, but investigated and punished punitively as well.
“All assault and hate crimes against NHS staff must be investigated with care, compassion, diligence and commitment,” he said.
This comes as more NHS workers are reporting that they have experienced abuse on the job. Roughly one in seven of the approximately 569,000 staff members who were surveyed reported being physically attacked on the job. This is happening as Britain is aggressively Islamified under the thumb of globalism and multiculturalism.
British authorities will not do anything to repel the flood of Muslims invading from the third world as a result of this troubling news. They will, however, enact new laws to punish so-called racists and sexists.
NHS chief executive Sir Simon Stevens claims that his organization is “determined to clamp down on abuse and aggression in all its forms.”
Other troubling findings from the NHS survey show that 40.3 percent of workers feel an excessive amount of work-related stress, and 22.9 percent of workers believe their time pressures are unrealistic. These figures have both raised over the past year.
37 percent of NHS staff members have reported that they have experienced bullying during their frequent face-to-face interactions with patients. In addition, 9 percent of workers have reported harassment or bullying from colleagues while 12 percent have reported mistreatment from their managers.
All of this news paints a dismal picture for a socialized healthcare system that is already overburdened, resulting in massive backlogs for patients looking to receive critical care. Figures recently released by NHS showed that a record 100,000 patients were left waiting for healthcare for more than four hours in January, with thousands of them delayed for more than 12 hours.
With all of these problems facing the NHS, the politically correct British government chooses to tackle supposed hate speech instead of the real problems. These new rules may allow people to be denied healthcare services because of their political beliefs, as anyone who criticizes drag queen grooming parties at libraries or the Islamic take-over already considered a bigot in the eyes of the British authorities.
