As Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, continues to consolidate power in the formerly secular nation, one of the foremost experts on Middle East geopolitics is sounding a desperate warning.
Erdogan is just getting started.
“I’ve been saying this for 12 years,” said Joel Richardson, New York Times bestselling author of “The Islamic Antichrist” and “Mideast Beast.” “I’ve said for years: ‘Watch Turkey. Watch Turkey. It’s going to become a radical nationalist Islamist nation.’”
Richardson made the comments on a recent episode of the “Shaun Tabatt Show” as the author discussed his newest book, “Mystery Babylon.” Though Richardson believes Saudi Arabia and its city of Mecca is the real “Mystery Babylon,” he says Turkey is turning out to be an end times actor in its own right, and the tensions between the Sunni Islamic powers of Turkey and Saudi Arabia will shape the Middle East in the coming years.
