Turkey has proposed an “international security measure” to protect Palestinian civilians. The country made the proposal at an emergency meeting of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) in the wake of the Israeli attack on the Palestinian Gaza Strip, including children and civilians. The proposal was made by Turkish Foreign Minister Mevl সাt াসavuগoলlu at a virtual meeting of the 57-nation OIC on Sunday.
Mevl সাt Savasgাসl বলেন said the effort would include the formation of an international security force to ensure the safety of Palestinian civilians. This can be done with the financial support of interested countries. Such measures are in line with a resolution adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2016.
“Now is the time to show solidarity and sincerity towards Palestine,” said Mevl সাt Savasgulu. Turkey is ready to take any necessary steps.
“We must stand up for justice and humanity,” he said. Nothing else should be considered here. ‘ He said Israel should face trial for war crimes and that the International Criminal Court could play a role.
At the same time last year, Libya and the Mediterranean were at the center of the unrest. The French sent warships in support of the Greeks against Turkey. Makho almost persuaded Europe to wage war against Ankara in the name of protecting maritime borders. Exactly one year later, there is no more war in Libya today. People are back home. Electricity, food supply has become normal. The reader may ask, what has happened in this one year that Makhon is no longer shouting war against Ankara. The answer is straightforward: the Libyan war was not for the Libyan people. It was a war imposed by the West, especially the French. It is true that the war has stopped today due to regional and political reasons, but it could start again at any moment. For the sake of economic interests, at present, everyone is fighting at the negotiating table instead of fighting on the battlefield.
The new interim government was formed under the auspices of the United Nations under US support and pressure. The president is Mohammad Yunus Manfi and the prime minister is Abdul Hamid Mohammad Dabibah. This government will have to be elected on December 24. Both Manafi and Dabibah are close to Ankara, and they are acceptable in the West. Both were elected and went to Ankara. Signed the contract. However, Ankara’s closeness to Manfie’s claims and the settlement of regional politics could ruin lasting peace in Libya. While NATO bombs were raining down from the sky, a section of the Brotherhood was fighting Gaddafi from the ground up. The most enthusiastic about this bombing was the then French President Sarkozy. He passed “Operation Unified Protector” from the UN Security Council at rocket speeds. Allegedly against Sarkozy, he took a lot of money from Gaddafi for the election campaign. Obama has criticized his autobiography, A Promised Land Sarkozy, and then-British Prime Minister David Cameron’s decisions on Libya. Libya’s civil war has repeatedly changed color since Obama. Turkey’s drone strikes thwarted Haftar’s Tripoli campaign despite repeated attempts by the West and the Saudi-Emirati bloc. Critics say the Ankara drone rain forced Haftar and his international allies, especially the Saudis and the French, to sit at the negotiating table.
In this changed situation, the establishment of lasting peace and social security in Libya depends on a number of conditions. Violation of any of these could lead to another civil war in Libya at the instigation of the West.
First, the Libya-Turkey maritime agreement. The Libya-Turkey maritime agreement is just as dangerous for Sarkozy as it is for Gaddafi’s survival. The main reason is that Greece and Erdogan are constantly going off the radar of the West and France. On November 26, 2019, Libya and Turkey signed a maritime agreement. The maritime agreement renders the Eastmed gas pipeline, signed by Israel, Greek Cyprus, Egypt, Lebanon and other countries in the eastern Mediterranean, useless. The Eastmed gas pipeline would carry gas from Eastern Mediterranean countries to the European market. The Israeli-French-Italian gang has risen to cancel the agreement. Greece has been the victim of this ring. Basically, the Israeli-French-Italian gang wants to implement the Greece-Libya maritime agreement by canceling the Libya-Turkey maritime agreement. Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis recently visited Tripoli to cancel the Libya-Turkey agreement. But Manfi did not put it on the face of Mitsotakis. Greece, a European country that is almost bankrupt, does not have the capacity to extract oil and gas. The oil and gas will be extracted in the name of Greece, the French ‘Total’ and the Italian ‘Ana’. The French do not want to lose this billion dollar trade.
Second, the Muslim Brotherhood. The Brotherhood that was cornered after Morsi’s death is slowly regrouping in North Africa today. In Tunisia in particular, if the Brotherhood candidate wins in December, there will again be political unrest in Libya. CC will not accept the presence of the Brotherhood in Tunisia as well as Libya. So the Brotherhood’s strong position in the upcoming elections could push Libya back to war. Third, Haftar and Agila Saleh. The political future of Haftar and Agila Saleh depends a lot on the politics of the Brotherhood. Political analysts believe that if the Brotherhood supports a Liberal candidate from behind the scenes without a direct Tunisian candidate, the Agila-Haftar pair’s political influence will diminish. The departure of the Agila-Haftar duo will also force the UAE-Saudi-Egypt bloc to rethink its political agenda.
The UAE-Saudi-Egypt belt wants to keep the Agila-Haftar pair alive at any cost. Probably in the upcoming elections, Agila or someone who supports Agila will be the presidential candidate of the Saudi zone. There is no problem if Agila wins; Everyone will be forced to accept. But if the Brotherhood or Ankara-backed candidate wins, the Saudis and the West, especially the French, will provoke renewed unrest, just as they did in 2006 with Hamas and in 2013 with Morsi. So there is no chance to be optimistic about peace in Libya right now.
