Erdogan’s most chilling quote should hold our attention as he establishes an Islamist dictatorship: “Democracy is like a streetcar… You ride it until you arrive at your destination and then you step off.” In 2016, Erdogan reached his destination.
The Rapture and End Times blog recently warned us about Turkish dictator Recep Erdogan acting like the fulfillment of the role of the Bible’s Antichrist and the leader of the Islamic alliance Nostradamus warned would fight WWIII against Christian Europe in the post:
“A series of alarming developments are happening right now in Turkey, and with President, Recep Erdogan:
Will Islamic world accept Turkey’s leadership? / Al-Monitor, April 19, 2016
Turkish President Erdogan’s ambition was not subtle as he stumped for himself at the Organization of Islamic States summit.
Ozturk, a columnist for daily Yeni Safak, which supports Erdogan, pointed to the collective assets of Islamic countries that could be harnessed under strong leadership and indicated that this is a task for Turkey to fulfill.
“We must not forget that Turkey is the largest OIC country, its natural leader and older brother. Therefore, the task of reviving the unity of this organization and strengthening it falls foremost on Turkey,” Ozturk wrote.

In private, Erdogan must be amazed at just how much he can wrangle. The worse his behaviour, the greater his clout in Europe. He can send German police to arrest German comedians whose jokes he dislikes. He can instruct the EU to delay its ‘progress reports’ on Turkey to a time that better suits his electoral purposes. A few weeks ago, a leaked transcript of a conversation showed Jean-Claude Juncker, [traitor to Europe, it would seem] president of the European Commission, pleading Erdogan to consider that ‘we have treated you like a prince in Brussels’.

Interestingly, the number of the Turkish President’s name using English Gematria equals 666:
This is not just a coincidence, as there are no other current world leaders that have their given names equal 666.
In my earlier book on the Antichrist, I did not consider Erdogan the top contender – perhaps second or third most likely. But Erdogan has made some very Antichrist-like moves in recent years, towards fundamentalist Islam, towards dictatorship, and towards uniting the Islamic world against the West.
In my newest book: Nostradamus and the Islamic Invasion of Europe, I make it very clear that Erdogan seems likely to fulfill the role of Islamic Antichrist described in the prophecies of both the Bible and Nostradamus… I also wrote in that book that the United States will probably abandon the Incirlik Air Force Base…
As I read at the warsclerotic blog here, Turkey Pivots Away from USA, NATO – Just as Nostradamus Predicted: “The prominent Turkish newspaper Sözcü in an op-ed published Sunday urged Erdogan to evict U.S. troops from the strategic Incirlik Air Base, located 60 miles from the Syrian border in southern Turkey. American forces have used the base to launch airstrikes against ISIS since 2015.
Michael Rubin, a resident scholar on the Middle East at the American Enterprise Institute, predicted Erdogan will threaten to deny the United States access to Incirlik in an attempt to pressure Trump to scale back the American partnership with the YPG. He said Erdogan may also pivot toward closer cooperation with Russia in Syria.”
