In the traitor’s trench: They sold their homeland and asked Erdogan for the price (Part 2)
Interest and mutual benefit are the basis of the relationship between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the fugitive Brotherhood leaders being harbored in his country. Erdogan uses them to falsely raise the Ottoman banner in an attempt to expand in the Arab region, while the Brotherhood is looking for money and nationality. This support appeared on many occasions, until Turkey became a safe haven and a melting pot for the Brotherhood media, with Istanbul becoming the headquarters for the various Arab branches of the terrorist Brotherhood aiming to destabilize those countries.
The Turkish regime has embraced terrorist leaders, including former ministers in the government of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, politicians, members of the People's Assembly, and former state advisors, in addition to thousands of young activists and media figures. Among those received by Turkey were those accused of leading the “armed qualitative committees of the Brotherhood”, such as Alaa Al-Samahi and Yehia Moussa, as well as the founders of the Hasm terrorist group, which was involved in carrying out a number of terrorist operations in Egypt. Ankara allowed them to move around freely and participate in supporting and leading activist organizations in Egypt. Among the most prominent leaders of the group that Turkey embraced after 2013 are Salah Abdel Maqsoud, Mohamed Kamal, Essam el-Haddad and Gamal Heshmat.
The Turkish regime also granted Brotherhood members many facilities by opening media platforms and television stations to embrace the group, such as the Rabaa, El Sharq, Masr Alaan, Ahrar 25, Shariah, and Mekameleen channels, in addition to a number of websites and online newspapers. When these platforms were launched, they focused on reporting on the demonstrations of what they called “the return of legitimacy”, which was being organized by the Brotherhood in Egypt. Then it expanded and became a platform for expressing the terrorist group's positions and the ongoing attacks against the Egyptian regime. Prominent activists in this regard included Moataz Matar, Saber Mashhour, controversial Sheikh Wagdy Ghoneim, and other ravens of sedition who do not tire of squawking against Egypt.
Ankara saw this activity and the presence of terrorist elements on its soil as a card to put pressure on Egypt, betting on them to extract the largest possible gains in the framework of its struggle, but all of this only led to tensions and aggravated relations with Cairo, which saw Ankara's policy as outright hostility.
The Turkish regime used media mercenaries, in a miserable attempt to spread chaos, stir public opinion, call for demonstrations, spread rumors against the ruling authority, and incite against the army and police in Egypt so as to turn back the clock in exchange for giving them the price of their betrayal, as Brotherhood channels in Turkey receive millions of dollars in exchange for carrying out their filthy mission.
The fugitive Ayman Nour and Moataz Matar are at the head of the traitors who do not stop spreading poisons and lies, as documents revealed that the latter received a monthly salary of $60,000, or $3,000 per episode, while Brotherhood journalist Mohammed Nasser received a $60,000 per month net salary for his appearance on the channel. Abdullah Sharif's salary is $120,000 per month in exchange for marketing work on social media, and Hamza Zawba gets $45,000. These salaries come in addition to luxury cars and private villas. This also shows the executive interface of terrorist channels, which are driven from behind the scenes by a group of Turkish and Qatari intelligence, which is divided into two parts – one which deals with Turks and some other nationalities and is affiliated with Turkish intelligence, while the terrorist Brotherhood belongs to the Qatari intelligence.
The betrayal by the leaders of the Brotherhood’s media scene in Turkey exceeded expectations, as they chose to be a dagger in Erdogan’s hand to be used for the Turkish occupation of their homeland. Journalist Mohammed Nasser took to attacking Egypt since the time of Muhammad Ali while defending the Turkish army, which he described as the Caliphate Army. It is noteworthy that he is facing sentences of a total of 13 years in a number of cases on charges of spreading false news and disturbing the public peace. He was also placed on watch lists for being wanted by security.
The fugitive Hamza Zawba, who is considered one of the Brotherhood leaders inciting violence against Egypt, took advantage of his program to incite the Egyptian army and police, broadcasting fabricated videos to stir public opinion in implementation of the orders of his masters in Turkey.
