BEIRUT, LEBANON (5:35 P.M.) – Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called on his people to trust God during a rallying call to supporters in the Black Sea province of Rize late on Thursday.

He said, “Today we are better than yesterday, tomorrow we will be better than today. You do not need to worry at all. Various manipulations were running. You shouldn’t pay attention to those manipulations. Don’t forget that, if they have their dollars we do have our people, we do have our Allah.”

The exchange rate is around 6.6 liras for one dollar, and 7.5 liras for a euro, compared to 3.5 liras for one dollar and 4.1 liras for one euro in August last year.

Seems Turks can thank Erdogan and Allah for having lost near half their wealth within a year… In fact, it’s not even due to “sanctions” which are symbolic (justice and interior minister) or the “chose between S-400 or F-35”.

Maybe Turks have Allah -if it exists, which is still unproven-, thus, unfortunately for them, and were speaking money here, they have Erdogan for sure… And it’s apparently not very good for business…Especially since Lira doesn’t only loses value to Dollar but to all other moneys… But for sure, Erdogan will blame it on the Yankees while he’s playing stupid with them, meanwhile, all economy specialists were already warning for several years that he [Erdog] was playing stupid with gigantic loans… Interesting… Read more »

Turkey has been a brutal anti-Christian and anti-Arab country for hundreds of years. It would be great to see Syria, Iran, and Russia work together to invade “terrorist Turkey” and liberate Constantinople once and for all !!
