The Treaty of Sevres and September 11, 2001

Turkish Conspiracy Behind 9/11 Terrorist Attacks

KIRKUS REVIEW

In his first work, Jolakian presents a theory that the Turkish government and a secret cabal of rulers from the former Holy Roman Empire orchestrated the events of September 11, 2001.

Jolakian is refreshingly open about his sources, yet his assumptions are unclear. Rather than beginning with an outline of the players and motives involved in his theory, he instead provides histories of Armenia and Turkey, eventually attempting to link his 9/11 theory to the Armenian Genocide. Some of this historical information is valuable, but the connection is tenuous at best. Though Jolakian thoroughly documents the succession of Turkish rulers, his theory ultimately rests on often unsupported assertions that many of these rulers were Freemasons and war criminals bent on world domination. From these claims, Jolakian develops a theory of Turkey’s plans, which include achieving nuclear weapons capability—via aid from Pakistan—and dividing and conquering Russia, thus making way for the rise of a New World Order, culminating in the apocalypse. In fact, because the work is so disorganized, it can be difficult to decipher what Jolakian believes; bullet-point lists and superfluous maps and pictures repeatedly interrupt the text without warning, and an impenetrable logic runs through paragraphs and movement of chapters. At some points, the theories swing from the ill-founded to the bizarre: Jolakian asserts that George H.W. Bush carried out a “nuclear terrorist attack” at Chernobyl and that a Jewish cabal orchestrated the Holocaust. Anti-Semitic theories dot the text, and seemingly every cabal masquerades as another; for instance, Jolakian suggests that the Rothschilds, the conspiracy-magnet banking family, are actually just a mask for the Holy Roman Empire.

Conspiracy theories that venture deep down the rabbit hole, supported by illogical structure, bizarre theories and superfluous information.
