ISIL sees modern Turkey as a prime example of the disastrous
consequences of diverting from what it considers to be true Islam.
In the video’s telling, Turks deviated from the faith with the rise of
the Sufi tradition, civil law, and modern education in the late Ottoman
period — all of which supposedly corrupted their Islamic character. With
the founding of the Turkish Republic, the people of Turkey began to
glorify national identity and replaced prayer with idol worship, such as
the pan-Turkic symbol of the wolf. ISIL uses the word “kavmiyetçilik,”
meaning tribalism, instead of “milliyetçilik,” meaning modern
nationalism. These pre-Islamic ideas, it argues, opened the Turks to the
influence of the “most disgusting of creatures from the West and the
East,” by which the video means Europe, Iran, and Jews in general.
According to the video, the chief founder of modern Turkey, Mustafa
Kemal Atatürk, is the product of this influence, and his secular
abomination of a state is the culmination of years of corruption.
