The ‘Golden Chain’ Suggests İhsanoğlu
The deep connections of Saudi multi-millionaire Sheikh Zeki Yamani, who is in good terms with İhsanoğlu, present the true identity of the centre that muttered the name of Kılıçdaroğlu and Bahçeli’s joint candidate.
The USA carried out an operation in Sarajevo, March 2002, against a Saudi Arabia-based organization called ‘Benevolence International Foundry.’ Some computers belonging to this Saudi Arabian organization were confiscated and some documents were found on them, one of which was a scanned handwritten document on which were the names of 20 people, all Saudi Arabian multi millionaires. The organization was labeled as a “terrorist supporter” by the US Treasury and the names on the list were revealed to be the first supporters of al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden. This list is now named the “Golden Chain”.
One of the names on the list was Sheikh Ahmed Zaki Yamani. Sheikh Yamani was the Saudi Arabian Minister of Oil between 1962 and 1986. Between 1968 and 1969, Yamani was the secretary to the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), and between 1974 and 1975, he was assigned to the chairmanship of the same organization.
Another name on the list was Suleiman bin Abdulaziz al-Rajhi. The multi millionaire Rajhi also owns the al-Rajhi Bank. According to a report by the US Committee, the Bin Laden’s providers of finance the al-Rajhi Bank and HSBC had a very closely knit relation until the end of the year 2010. The HSBC was notorious for laundering money which was used during concealed operations by the CIA and MI6.
Also on the list was the Saudi multi millionaire Khalid bin Mahfouz. The founder of the Muwafaq Foundation, which is one of the organizations linked with al-Qaida, Mahfouz was also one of the founders of the Bank of Commerce and Credit (BCCI), which was used as a cloak to launder money.
The bank went bankrupt in 1990 and was accused of laundering money gained from the drug trade and of supporting terrorist organizations. The CIA and the US National Security Agency (NSA) used the BCCI for secret operations and international money transfer. The NSA gave financial support to the counter guerrillas who fought against Sandinista government in Nicaragua. The CIA also used the BCCI for the transfer of concealed financial help to Afghan groups and for rewarding Pakistani military officers.
Another partner of Sheik Yamani in Investcorp is Sheik Abdullah Bahiş. An interesting connection is Sheik Bahiş and Mahfuz are the source of fund for the oil company Arbusto and Harken Energy of former USA President George Bush!
What does all of these have to do with Ekmeleddin İhsanoğlu? There is another foundation whose founder and chairman is Sheik Ahmed Zaki Yamani, al-Qaeda’s source of funds. The co-chairman of the Al Furqan Foundation, whose aim is to ‘protect Islamic legacy and performing studied on this subject’ according to their own definition, is Ekmeleddin İhsanoğlu. Ekmeleddin İhsanoğlu, who has a very intimate relationship with Sheikh Zeki Yamani, was one of the important guests at Sheik Yamani’s daughter’s wedding in Çırağann Palace. Another important guest was Abdullah Gül. Sheikh Yamani hosted Gül and İhsanoğlu at his own table. Semahat Arsel, the daughter of Vehmi Koç, was among the guests in the wedding where Arab and Turkish high society met. Much attention was drawn by the fact that Sheikh Yamani brought his daughter in his arm to the groom like in Christian traditions.
The connections, of which we mention only a few, are the parts of a web formed to build first Green Belt, and then ‘Moderate Islam’ regimes organized world-wide, who have the CIA and MI6 at their top, and who are financed with dollars from oil of Saudi Arabia. The USA created the Green Belt Strategy in 1980 in order to bring down the Soviet Union and Eastern Bloc, and therefore organized a web in Muslim countries. The most important part of this web was creating warriors who conducted Holy War on behalf of the CIA ‘against Communism’ after Soviet Union’s invasion in Afghanistan. In a geography stretching from the Balkans to China, this web, enlarged with the activities of drugs and money laundering conducted by CIA, is a tool that was first used for Greater Middle East and North Africa Project and then turned into an excuse. Just like it is today in Syria and Iraq.
