Russia's Sergey Lavrov is not one
foreign minister known to mince his words.
Just earlier today, 24 hours after a
Russian plane was brought down by the country whose president
three years ago said "a short-term
border violation can never be a pretext for an attack", had this to
"We have serious doubts this was an
unintended incident and believe this is a planned provocation"
But even that was tame compared to what
Lavrov said to his Turkish counterparty Mevlut Cavusoglu
earlier today during a phone call between the two (Lavrov who was
supposed to travel to Turkey has since canceled such plans).
Sputnik transcribes, according to a
press release from Russia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Lavrov
pointed out that,
"by shooting down a Russian plane on
a counter-terrorist mission of the Russian Aerospace Force in
Syria, and one that did not violate Turkey's airspace,
the Turkish government has in
effect sided with ISIS."
It was in this context when Lavrov added
actions appear premeditated, planned, and undertaken with a
More importantly, Lavrov pointed to
Turkey's role in the propping up the terror network through the oil
As per the Russian statement:
"The Russian Minister reminded his
counterpart about Turkey's involvement in the ISIS' illegal
trade in oil, which is transported via the area where the
Russian plane was shot down,
and about the terrorist infrastructure, arms and munitions
depots and control centers that are also located there."
Others reaffirmed Lavrov's stance, such
as retired French General Dominique Trinquand, who said that,
"Turkey is either not fighting ISIL
at all or very little, and does not interfere with different
types of smuggling that takes place on its border, be it oil,
phosphate, cotton or people," he said.
The reason we find this line of
questioning fascinating is that just last week in the aftermath of
the French terror attack but long before the Turkish downing of the
Russian jet, we wrote about "The
Most Important Question About ISIS that Nobody is Asking"
in which we asked who is the one,
"breaching every known law of funding terrorism when buying ISIS
crude, almost certainly with the tacit approval by various
'western alliance' governments, and why is it that these
governments have allowed said middleman to continue funding ISIS
for as long as it has?"
Precisely one week later, in even more
tragic circumstances, suddenly everyone is asking this question.
And while we patiently dig to find who
the on and offshore "commodity trading" middleman are, who
cart away ISIS oil to European and other international markets in
exchange for hundreds of millions of dollars, one name keeps popping
up as the primary culprit of regional demand for the Islamic State's
"terrorist oil" - that of Turkish president Recep Erdogan's son:
His very brief bio:
Necmettin Bilal Erdogan, commonly
known as Bilal Erdogan (born 23 April 1980) is the third child
of Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the current President of Turkey.
After graduating from Kartal Imam
Hatip High School in 1999,
Bilal Erdogan moved to the US for undergraduate education.

Government at Harvard University in 2004. After
graduation, he served in the
World Bank as intern for a while. He returned Turkey in
2006 and started to his business life.
Bilal Erdogan is one of the three
equal shareholders of "BMZ Group Denizcilik ", a marine

In the next few days, we will present a
full breakdown of Bilal's various business ventures, starting with
his BMZ Group which is the name implicated most often in the
smuggling of illegal Iraqi and Islamic State through to the western
supply chain, but for now here is a brief, if very disturbing
snapshot, of both father and son Erdogan
by F. William
Engdahl, one which should make everyone ask whether
the son of Turkey's president (and thus, the father) is the silent
mastermind who has been responsible for converting millions of
barrels of Syrian Oil into hundreds of millions of dollars of
Islamic State revenue.
Dangerous ISIS Games
More and more
details are coming to light revealing that the Islamic State in
Iraq and Syria, variously known as ISIS, IS or Daesh, is being
fed and kept alive by Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish
President and by his Turkish intelligence service, including
MIT, the Turkish CIA.
Turkey, as a
result of Erdogan's pursuit of what some call a Neo-Ottoman
Empire fantasies that stretch all the way to China, Syria
and Iraq, threatens not only to destroy Turkey but much of the
Middle East if he continues on his present path.

US Vice President Joe Biden told a Harvard gathering that

Party, CHP, declared in a recent Turkish media interview,
"President Erdogan claims that according to international
transportation conventions there is no legal infraction
concerning Bilal's illicit activities and his son is doing
an ordinary business with the registered Japanese companies,
but in fact Bilal Erdoan is up to his neck in complicity
with terrorism, but as long as his father holds office he
will be immune from any judicial prosecution."
