Erdogan Hints at Executing 13,000, Exits European Human Rights Convention

from Sputnik News:

Turkish authorities have arrested more than 13,000 people believed to be tied to the coup attempt and have gutted the country’s civil services sector suspending over 60,000 educators, judges and police.

“‘Why should I keep them and feed them in prisons for years to come?’ – that’s what the people say,” said Erdogan. “The people now have the idea, after so many terrorist incidents, that these terrorists should be killed, that’s where they are, they don’t see any other outcome to it.”

In the wake of the coup, the Erdogan government immediately withdrew from the jurisdiction of the European Court of Human Rights, which bans executions, raising the likelihood of mass executions.

Erdogan’s Turkey now finds itself in a state of disrepair in the wake of a failed coup attempt that left at least 246 dead and more than 2,000 injured as the country’s president called his people to go into the streets and clash with the military forces attempting to overthrow the government. The coup forces, which labelled themselves a Peace Council, opened fire on civilians with helicopters, tanks, and automatic rifles.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said on Saturday authorities had imprisoned over 13,000 people on accusations of treason, including 8,831 soldiers and 2,745 judges – 36% of the entire Turkish judiciary.

“The cleansing is continuing, and we remain very determined,” President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in a speech late Wednesday describing opposition as a “virus” within the Turkish military and state institutions that had spread like “cancer.”

Many worry that the government’s dragnet has extended well beyond those who could have been connected to the botched coup plot or even sympathizers to the cause in light of President Erdogan’s move in June to pass a constitutional amendment revoking legislative immunity for Kurdish opposition lawmakers from the HDP. Erdogan also successfully pushed to expand the country’s “terrorist” laws to extend to virtually any opposition member deemed by decree.

    So, our staunch ally, Erdogan, is going to Execute 13,000 former Turks (I guess their are deemed Illegal Turks now?) and fire/dismiss 60,000 disloyal Civil Service workers, but the Zionists who control America defame Trump when he states he wants to keep out Illegal and while Britain must formally File under Article 50 for permission to leave the EU, this pompous Young Turk simply “withdraws” for the European Human Rights Commission like that (Snap)? Then, Erdongan is free to commit genocide against his own people without worry!

    Boy, America’s should adopt the Islamic governance thingy form of purging Progressive Civil Service workers and politicians ( although I think we would be looking at more that 13,000 traitors ) and Britain should simply withdraw from the European Union of Criminal Enterprise. Problems Solved. Make America Great Again the Turk way!

    Regardless of the veracity of the titled report by “Sputnik” [which might be operated by NGOs Running Amok within that joker], when The 2 Faces of The Same Coin/Pro-&-Con are having a tussel, you are having a laugh at best. And whilst The Stupid-Dumb are having their laughs, they are driven further down their “Rabbit Holes”/Dungeons whilst imagining that either of The 2 Faces of The Same Coin will be dwelling there. Is it a joke whenever Malevolence/The-Devolver is having His Last Laugh?

    Whatever/Wherever the Truth may be standing, Yous Gottas Laugh, don’t you. Not when you are one of those purported condemned 13k other than wishing, hoping and praying that there is no such thing as “Death” other than reverting to The Singularly Benevolent for The Audit of one’s “Deposits at le Banque de Divinity”. If true, those 13k have had better start “Saving”.
