Turkish media expose Mossad plan to assassinate Erdogan
Turkish media revealed on Friday that an electronic mail was found at the personal computer of one of the members of the secret Ergenekon organization exposing an Israeli Mossad scheme to kill Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
According to the indictment list tabled by the Turkish prosecution against the organization, an Israeli journalist sent an e-mail to a number of the organization”s figures accused in the (thwarted) coup attempt against the Erdogan government, informing them that the Israeli Mosaad was prepared to assassinate Erdogan.
Turkish press sources said that the journalist informed the Ergenekon members that they were supporting Mr. Dugo against the “Islamist terrorist” Erdogan, and that he informed them of the Mossad chief Meir Dagan”s coordination with Mr. Dugo in this regard. He also said that a Mossad team was awaiting the green light from Mr. Dugo to carry out the mission.
The Turkish sources added that Mr. Dugo, whose name was mentioned in the e-mail, could be Turkish Labor Party head Dugo Prinitchek, who is suspected of leading the secret organization.
A Turkish paper said last month that Israel was striving hard to topple and oust the government of Erdogan because of its support for the Palestinian cause.
A couple of months ago, Erdogan angrily left the Davos conference after he engaged Israeli president Shimon Peres in heated arguments over Israeli crimes against Palestinian civilians in Gaza Strip, in which the emcee refused to give him chance to refute Peres” lies .
The Turkish organization was discovered in 2007 after Turkish security agencies found a weapon cache in a suburb in Istanbul that led to arresting 86 members of the group who were put on trial for planning to oust the elected Turkish government.
Two retired military generals were leading the organization that, according to the Turkish sources, has close contacts with the Israeli intelligence.
