Christchurch Shooter Manifesto Targets Turks/Assassinate Erdogan?

I really wanted to stay away from this one... but found the targeting of Turkey and Turkish people too compelling an aspect to pass over

*The “Islamaphobia” hand is being overplayed. This is media driven identity politics for the masses. Serves the elites, always.
*The usual call for gun control? Yup, those gun laws have to be changed!  
And now is the time for those changes! (legally acquired guns)
Again beneficial for state control of the masses by targeting lawful gun ownership 
Harkens back to the Danforth Shooting (Canada already having very stringent gun laws)

Let's ignore the noise for the masses and focus on a specific chapter in the shooter's manifesto?

"To Turks"  Yes, oddly enough the Christchurch shooter’s manifesto specifically singled out Turkey? And Turks? How serendipitous, for the regional remake agenda is that?
Seriously, that's one 'happy' coincidence? Or not. Targeting Turkey is all the rage right now.
The US and Israel have both been at odds with Turkey.
And as 'coincidence' would have it, the Christchurch shooter also demonstrates a clear disdain for Turkey? Curious, no?

Since I'm not a coincidence theorist and the scorn for Turkey, included in the Christchurch shooters manifesto, reads a whole lot to me like the rather commonplace anti Turkey diatribes that one can read almost anywhere on line. Including in the so called 'alternative media' and from innumerable troll brigades whose intent is to manage perception.

Was there a message to Turkey in the shooting and manifesto?

I’d say it’s very possible.

Before the attack the music played:

"The wolves are coming, beware, Ustashi and Turks," the lyrics to the song run

Long forgotten battles against the Ottomans have significance:

There are also the names of legendary Serbian knight Milos Obilic and Serbian Prince Lazar Hrebeljanovic, who both fought against the Ottoman Turks at the Battle of Kosovo in 1389. The names of several other Balkan figures who fought against the Turks over the centuries are also scrawled on Tarrant's weapons.

Daily Sabah

The manifesto has a part titled "to turks," [sic] in which the writer threatens to kill all Turks living on the European side of Turkey and elsewhere in Europe. The text defines the area where Turks would be allowed to live peacefully as the "east side of the Bosporus."

"We are coming for Constantinople and we will destroy every mosque and minaret in the city. The Hagia Sophia will be free of minarets and Constantinople will be rightfully christian [sic] owned once more," the text continues.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is also attacked in the manifesto which argues that he should be killed while on a visit to the Turkish community in Europe, which the assailant called "his ethnic soldiers currently occupying Europe" in the hate-filled text.

Erdogan: “he must bleed his last”

In a chapter of Tarrant’s hate-filled manifesto he called for the assassination of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, declaring “he must bleed his last.” 

We know the US and friends tried that already!

The text also says that Erdogan's death will serve to drive a wedge "between the Turk invaders currently occupying our lands and the ethnic European people simultaneously weakening Turkeys [sic] hold on the region, removing a prime enemy of Russia and destabilizing and fracturing NATO."

Is he wanting to save/strengthen NATO and the expense of the region and it's inhabitants?
 That too is a very American idea

In a part titled "Europe for Europeans," the manifesto vows to remove all "invaders" from Europe, regardless of whether they are "Roma, African, Indian, Turkish, Semitic or other."

The manifesto argues that NATO should be turned into a European army and Turkey, the second largest military in the alliance and one of the earliest members since 1949, should be pushed "once more back to the true position of a foreign, enemy force."

 Yup, this guy has it in for Turkey!
 He comes off as pro EU as long as it's  subordinated to NATO?

There is more to the Christchurch incident then the frontline or common presentation.

UPDATE March 19/19: partial comment below (link with comment)

Hi Penny,

I also found the terrorist's reference to Hagia Sophia interesting. 2 days prior the terror attack EU parliament made a special remark opposing to Hagia Sophia's possible conversion to a historical-religious monument/mosque during Turkey's membership talks.......

I think Hagia Sophia is a symbol of power politics in the region, and we will be hearing about it more, clash of civilizations again and again.

 Additional reading:


 Erdogan referencing the shooter evoking the Hagia Sophia:

"You're not going to fill nearby Sultan Ahmet mosque and then say let's fill the Hagia Sophia now," he said.

"We know how to take the step and we know the political language of it."


One last thing? New Zealand itself has deep connections to Israel as part of it's 5 eyes intelligence apparatus.

5 eyes should really be 6 eyes and include Israel, but, Israel's connection to that alliance is never mentioned-

The 5 Eyes (6 eyes?) Meet in New Zealand- Presently

 Don't Miss:
