Erdoğan’s chief advisor threatens EU

Yiğit Bulut, a chief advisor of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan

Yiğit Bulut, a chief advisor of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, on Monday threatened the European Union, warning them to refrain any negative move against Turkey or Erdoğan and saying, “You will be praying for every second you breathe!”

Reiterating his thesis that the EU will collapse in an article published in the pro-Erdoğan Star daily, Bulut said: “Turkey’s EU membership is another topic under debate. The end of this lie is also a matter of time…”

Bulut claimed that a meeting between EU leaders and Pope Francis at the Vatican in March was proof of the perception of a “Christian Union.”

“The threats from EU countries against Turkey, the Turkish nation, our geography and Islam’s ummah and those who make those threats must clearly understand that if anything untoward is done to this nation, this country, the values of this state or this ummah, and most notably our president, you will be praying for every second you breathe! If you know what praying is…” said Erdoğan’s chief advisor.

“The shadow of the robes of Pope [Francis] where you hide yourselves will not protect you, either!” added Bulut.

In February, speaking on public broadcaster TRT, Bulut claimed that Turkey has developed missiles that have the capability of striking any country within the EU.

“If even a single hair of Erdoğan is harmed, nobody in any region will be able to enjoy even a breakfast,” Bulut said in March in remarks with a heavily nationalist tone.

Bulut, who has a secular background, kept claiming that the ummah and the nation have become stronger again under Erdoğan’s leadership.

  1. “…if anything untoward is done…” It will be what they Don’t do. The tourism sector will be the first domino. Yiğit Bulut and Recep Tayyip Erdoğan won’t even notice, because they will still get Their three square meals a day.

  2. He is barking because he feels turkey isn’t as good as the EU. So he hates us. This advisor has also called for the annexation of Cyprus and has also said Greece would dump us in favour of joining turkey, plus he has probably been exposed to radical Islam that has hijacked real Islam. In fact this guy was once a erdogan critic.
