Dictator Mustafa Kemal Was A British Agent

In the large room on the first floor of his house in Shishli the three friends talked and plotted to find a way out for their country. They formed in effect a secret revolutionary committee, whose aim was to force the resignation of the Government, to form a new one, if necessary to dethrone the Sultan. But one at least of their conferedates found Kemal too extreme. He feared the risk involved and the committee was disbanded. Maybe, after all, revolution was not the answer, for any attempt at it would immediately be suppressed by the Allies.

Perhaps, it occurred to Kemal, something could be achieved through the Allies themselves. With his compelling presence and his immaculate uniform, emblazoned with medals and with the insignia of an ADC to the Sultan, he was already a conspicuous figure in the Pera Palace Hotel, its mock-Oriental marble halls now teeming with officers in the occupying forces and in the Inter-Allied High Commission. He attracted their curiosity as soon as it became known that he was the hero of the Dardanelles. At first he chose to keep his distance.

But now he began to see that some contact with the Allies might serve his designs. They were, after all, in virtual control of the country. The French had landed in Alexandretta and were pressing forward into Cilicia. The Italians were about to land at Adalia, thence likewise to penetrate inland. The British had control officers scattered over Turkey from Thrace to the Caucasus, supervising demobilization and disarmament. The Sultan was in power, and unlikely to give Kemal a post of any consequence in the dwindling Turkish army. For what he sought -and this was just such a national resurgence as Curzon feared- any position of authority was better than none. Might he not obtain some post from the Allies themselves – preferably the British, who had no ultimate territorial designs on the country? Power obtained under their auspices, now that they had come, might well be turned into other and more patriotic channels once they had gone.

Deciding to sound them out indirectly, he chose as intermediary a British correspondent of repute, G. Ward Price, of the ‘Daily Mail’. Through the manager of the Pera Palace Hotel, he sent the correspondent an invitation to take coffee with him. After consulting the responsible colonel in the Intelligence Branch of the General Staff, Mr Ward Price accepted. He found Kemal not in uniform but in a frock-coat and fez. He struck him as handsome and virile, restrained in gestures, quiet and deliberate in voice. He was accompanied by his friend Refet.

Kemal confessed to him that his country had joined the wrong side in the war. The Turks should never have quarrelled with the British. They had done so as a result of Enver’s pressure. They had lost – and now they must pay heavily. Anatolia was to be divided. Kemal was anxious that the French should be kept out of the country. A British administration would be less unpopular.

“If the British,” he said, “are going to assume the responsibility for Anatolia, they will need the co-operation of experienced Turkish governors to work under them. What I want to know is the proper quarter to which I can offer my services in that capacity.”

Ward Price gave the staff colonel an account of the interview. He dismissed it as unimportant, remarking, “There will be a lot of these Turkish generals looking for jobs before long.”

    Your “facts” are lies and slanders, and reek of homophobia, misogyny, and antisemitism. What’s more, they were conspired to by agents of British Imperialism, whose lying word you accept as reported fact. Mustafa Kemal was a deliverer of his people from the despotism of the Caliphate and the lies of the merchant Bigot of Medina. May the Kabbah be restored to the devotees of the Moon God and whatever other dieties the people of Mecca may have chosen to worship. And may the name of the vandal Bigot go down in infamy!

    they dont seem to realise that the same people who caused mischief in Hejaz (Arabia) are responsible for installing Kemal Pasha- they blame the poor gullible arabs for the actions of the British/Zionists and think being turkish is more inportant than being muslim.Allah Ta’ala is not worried if you are Arab,Turk or Pakistani- he wants to see who is going to obey his commands & follow the Sunnah of Rasulullah Salallahu Alaihi Wasallam.
