Ba'athist Headlines from Milliyet and Aydınlık Newspaper
The Baath lobby continues to work through the Turkish media. Yesterday Aydınlık, Today the headlines of Milliyet were propaganda of the Assad regime against the Syrian people.
Aydınlık and Milliyet, with these headlines, did not defend the right of resistance to a desperate and oppressed people; they defended the right of Assad to the massacre. SADAT also responded to the headline and claims of Aydınlık, the indomitable defender of the Baas lobbyist.
Here is the headline for the 03.09.2012 of the Aydınlık Newspaper:
And the headline of Milliyet Newspaper dated 04.09.2012:
Retired General Adnan Tanrıverdi, Chairman of the Board of SADAT, denied the headline published in the Aydınlık newspaper yesterday (today in Milliyet). We present the relevant part of Tanrıverdi's explanation as follows; According to Aydınlık's accusation of "legal guerrilla war," "The training to be made by SADAT Defense are Not an illegal warfare training to be used against innocent civilians, as the newspaper claimed and assumed; Training will be provided to the foreign armed forces in the face of the military forces occupying their country, and who wish to receive training when they have no regular force and want to strangle the occupiers in the territories they have occupied.”
CLARIFICATION RELATED TO LIE NEWS OF AYDINLIK NEWSPAPER
After these general explanations, I would like to return to the news of the Aydınlık newspaper.
On Wednesday, August 29, 2012, a reporter from Aydınlık Newspaper, who said that he was Ceyhun Bozkurt, called our company and talked about some of the allegations after receiving general information about our company.
He asked, whether we had trained the Syrian opponents and whether the money collected in the Gulf countries was going to the Opposition through us.
We have indicated that our Company has not yet been active, has not been trained in any country or group, either at home or abroad, and that there is no money that we have received to be given to the Syrian opposition from any country or source.
Therefore, the news on this topic does not have any real relevance. The information that “2800 people are trained by us and some 300-400 groups are trained by us in camps, and our goal is to train more than 4500 people” is completely false.
SADAT Defense Company believes that the administration of Bashar Assad in Syria has lost its legitimacy, that this administration has inflicted cruelty on its people, which the occupier did not do, and that the opponents of this administration should be actively supported. However, it will not be possible to support with its own will and without the approval of the Turkish Republic state. Although demanded by the Syrian opposition, education support has not been given, as our establishment process has not been completed.
It means we do not train and arm the Syrian "gangs".
However, SADAT defense will be able to provide consultancy, education, and equipment support to the military forces of foreign countries, which are deemed legitimate by our country, in the areas they need.
These services have not yet started actively.
Looking at our company as a "legal guerrilla organization" can only be the result of distorted thinking. The training to be provided by SADAT Defense are not illegal warfare training to be used against innocent civilians, as the newspaper thinks and claims; Against the military forces occupying their country, when they have no regular power, they will be given to the foreign armed forces who want to get an education that will narrow the occupied lands. This training is also a legitimate way of operations, both in the front of domestic law and in the field of International law. Accepting this crime means confusing the straw and the hay.
SADAT Defense is not a Company established under the government's direction. On the contrary, Government officials tried to understand our initiative. It is a company set up by people who feel the responsibility to deliver this service as a burden to their shoulders, regardless of daily politics.
On the other hand, ASDER, of which we are so proud of being a member, has always acted under law and justice, and it is nothing more than slander to acknowledge that Ergenekon and Balyoz cases of this day were involved in the spoofing and forgery of information and documents. It is a fictitious and imaginary crop. ASDER members did nothing but explicitly report if there was anything they knew. Their works are also presented for public opinion and on websites.
We are convinced that Aydınlık Newspaper, by publishing inks about the SADTA Defense, provided an opportunity for some parties to control it. Our Legal Rights Are Reserved, SADAT Defense, the facts about it are respectfully announced to the public opinion.
Chairman of the Board of Directors of SADAT
