Meet The Man Who Funds ISIS: Bilal Erdogan, The Son Of Turkey’s President

Interesting coincidence: Russia bombs more than 500 oil tankers smuggling ISIS oil to Turkey where the president’s son is raking in a gadzillion dollars selling it to the rest of the world and his father retaliates by shooting down a Russian jet in Syrian airspace. Follow the money.

Russia’s Sergey Lavrov is not one foreign minister known to mince his words. Just earlier today, 24 hours after a Russian plane was brought down by the country whose president three years ago said“a short-term border violation can never be a pretext for an attack”, had this to say: “We have serious doubts this was an unintended incident and believe this is a planned provocation” by Turkey.

But even that was tame compared to what Lavrov said to his Turkish counterparty Mevlut Cavusoglu earlier today during a phone call between the two (Lavrov who was supposed to travel to Turkey has since canceled such plans).

As Sputnik transcribes, according to a press release from Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Lavrov pointed…

      • It is Zerohedge that has the problem, as is widely known, and it is one of credibility. Some good stuff appears on there, such as the manipulation of precious metals markets, but there’s far too much conspiratorial nonsense promulgated by anonymous sources. One has to ask, given this is all financial (dis)information, whether someone has a vested interest in skewing the putative news. That is precisely how the big players operate, and it is they who set the rules of the game. Lack of credibility does not necessarily connote falsehood of course.


  1. “Russia bombs more than 500 oil tankers smuggling ISIS oil to Turkey . . . . ”
    It does not look very much like a coincidence to me, not at all. I thought all along that there may be a connection.


  2. As a Turkish person I know says, “The Turkish government has been taken over by the US and NATO.” The Turkish people want none of this.


  3. Well, who knows? There are a lot of unsubstantiated assertions here. I’m curious about those 500 oil tankers and the route they are taking to Turkey. Are they trucks traveling by road, from where? Iraq? Into eastern (Kurdish majority) Turkey? And where were they when the Russians bombed them? And how do they know where they were bound for? And if the Russians are bombing Turkey’s oil supplies, maybe they deserved to have a plane shot down. And where did ISIS/Daesh come from in the first place? Many argue they are a US creation springing from the disastrous invasion and occupation of Iraq – which Turkey did not participate in. Or are they ship tankers? Departing from Bilal Erdoğan’s (alleged) ports in Syria? If so, how is the oil getting from Iraq – or wherever it’s coming from, to the Syrian coast? Either way, that’s a hell of a lot of oil tankers, making a pretty large bang if some one really managed to bomb them. Answers please – and maybe a few more questions before reblogging such heinous accusations against a NATO ally. It wasn’t so long ago Russia was the bad guy for its actions in Ukraine. Suddenly they are the good guys?


  4. Thanks for the link Dr Bramhall, but the only reference I could find in that article to 500 tankers was:
    “Russia has announced that its air force has so far destroyed around 500 fuel trucks in the past few days as they transport oil from Syria to refineries in Iraq in what is a key part of ISIS financing.” And no mention at all of Turkey or President Erdoğan’s son.
    As an aside, the one and only time I used The Daily Mail as a reference I was roundly criticised by an English academic colleague, so I decided to avoid it.


  5. Well, that’s an interesting range of sources – which I don’t have time to read. I did check out the last one which has a link to maps showing the journey of a barrel of oil ‘from ISIS to the outside world’, none of whose routes pass through any part of Turkey! In spite of the headline! And what parts of the ‘outside world’ is it going to?
    The other link of yours I checked out said the oil was going from Syria to refineries in Iraq, and made no mention of Turkey either. This one says trucks are bringing it from Iraq via Kurdish-controlled northern Iraq – which suggests the Kurds are conspiring with ISIS in the export of the oil. Seems unlikely to me. Most of the anti-Turkey black propaganda circulating on the internet on this subject originates from Russia. With all due respect, I really wish you people would be a little more rigorous in the sources you quote and reblog.


      • Sorry, my comment below was intended as a reply. No personal criticism intended – but the headlines of some of those articles don’t seem to be supported by evidence in the articles themselves. By all means, ask questions – but try to be sure the answers you’re getting are not just as unreliable as the ones you were questioning in the first place.


  6. Some things are being questioned, and some people are asking questions. There are questions about Erdogan and his family in here as same questions that are asked about Obama, Merkel, Hollande. The issue is much deeper actually. “How the assets of his family has risen for the past 19 years” is one of questions. And “Follow the money” is a very popular sentence on this planet, isn’t it 🙂

    While in 1994 the mayor of Istanbul Recep Tayyip Erdogan had said in his speech while showing his wedding ring: “Here, this ring is my all fortune”

    According to the report, the date 2014, his wealth has increased 730-fold in 18 years. Which is it was not included $ 800 million in the Swiss banks which was claimed in WikiLeaks documents to this figure.

    This $ 800 million didn’t claim by only WikiLeaks. The same claim made by former one of top managers of Turkish Intelligence Service K. Kozinoglu who died in prison in suspicious circumstances at Balyoz-Ergenekon law cases which were treacherous attacks to the Turkish army. At those days, T. Erdogan says that: “I am the prosecutor of this case.” for Balyoz-Ergenekon cases.

    Also the assets of his children are not included to the figures of his goods, they do have worth trillions villas both in Turkey and abroad. Also here is the news about the ships owned by Bilal Erdogan.

    After this news, in September 2015 his company added two new ships, and his ships number has been 5.

    The largest opposition party, CHP Deputy Chairman and Spokesman Haluk Koc said that before Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s presidential nomination of Turkey in July 2014:
    “The wealth of Tayyip Erdogan who said “here this ring is my all fortune” is currently incalculable wealth case. What a fertile ring! His money account has no bounds. They money never end with zeroing. We are talking about the presidential candidacy of a person who starting with a wedding ring, after has become the world’s richest politicians.”

    As far I can see anyone doesn’t make black propaganda about Turkey or the people of Turkey under this title. I know that so many people can do propaganda for any people of any country. But not in here. In here people are questioning about management of Turkey. These are the different things.

    And, if the people cannot ask question, what would be left to the humanity?


    • There is no doubt in my mind that, if not for the Ergenekon/Balyoz court cases, the democratically elected government of Turkey would have been overthrown by a military coup, as had happened 4 times in the 42 years previously. Mr Erdoğan and not a few of his team would probably be in prison, if not on death Row like Morsi and his elected people in Egypt. Erdoğan was actually imprisoned during his term as Mayor of Istanbul (!!) back in the 1990s – and his opponents tried to use the courts to have the AK Party removed from office and banned after thy were elected in 2002. I am extremely suspicious of the motives of people who seem nostalgic for the good old days of elitist governments in Turkey, military coups, political arrests, disappearances and torture.


      • I’ve started to “follow the money” sentence and continued over this. But I see that there isn’t any reply-comment about this subject. Also, Balyoz-Ergenekon cases had been created over the false evidences and slanders to Ataturkist officers and generals in Turkish army. At those days, T. Erdogan and F. Gulen community were in good relationships. But after then, this relationship have broken. And today, even AKP and T. Erdogan think almost parallel with the victims of these cases.

        At the end of Ergenekon-Balyoz cases, especially in Turkish Navy, almost every senior admiral were in the prison. If today the question of “why Turkish army is so much depend to US?” is asked, the answer is “because of these cases which were the last impact of process by starting with September 12, 1980.” They turned into Turkish army to what they wanted in this period.

        The subject of Balyoz-Ergenekon cases were over about the coup to AKP government by Turkish army. And to think about these cases were the smilar with the coups at Turkey last 40 years should be joke. Because this means to not understand what happening in this region with “new world order”.


    • Why you insist continuously to use “black propaganda about Turkey”, even if “talking about the people and the country are not the same thing with to criticize to the management of any country” has been said. As being an extraterrestrial this caught my attention:)
