Jimmy: Demonstrations in Turkey have focused on a city park in the center of Istanbul, however that is not the real story nor the reason behind all of these demonstrations in Turkey. Tayyip Erdogan who is an Islamist, a radical, has a desire to lead the Islamic world. We know this because of his background when he was the mayor there in Istanbul. With the latest on this information, a Turkish journalist, Atilla Tuna gives us this report.

He was the mayor of Istanbul and he went to prison for six months while he was mayor because in one of his speeches he read a poetry from an Islamic poet, but the problem was not the poem it was the words in the poem. In his words he said, "The minarets are our weapons and the domes of the minarets, of the mosques, are our helmets", with those words he was trying to provoke people to riot against the regime, that was the reason why he was arrested. Later on he developed his own political party which is the present ruling party in Turkey, so that's how he started and he continues.

I've heard that Tayyip Erdogan has grandiose desires, he would like to be the pan-Islamic leader. Is that still the case?

Atilla: Yes, that is the case. He is a very influential leader in the Middle East among the Islamic party. For example, he is very influential among the Muslim brothers in the Egyptian government. He is a very good friend of Hezbollah in Lebanon and Israel. He has good relations with many Islamic extreme groups around the world.

Jimmy: Atilla Tuna with information about Tayyip Erdogan and his desire to be the pan-Islamic leader, the leader of the Islamic world and advance Islam all across the world.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The Prime Minister of Turkey has a desire to be the pan-Islamic leader of the entire world which is exactly what Bible prophecy said would happen.

Tayyip Erdogan has traveled throughout the entire Middle Eastern world developing relationships with Islamic leaders in the many nations of the Middle East. The Bible tells us in the book of Ezekiel 38:2, 6 that Turkey will be one of those major players in the end times as we see an Alignment of Nations going against the Jewish state of Israel. In Ezekiel 38:2 it talks about Meshech and Tubal, in verse 6, Gomer and Togarmah and they will be on the stage in the end times as they endeavor to try to destroy the Jewish state of Israel and setup a worldwide kingdom.
