The Marmara Manhattan, a Turkish-owned luxury hotel on New York’s City Upper East Side, markets birth tourism packages to expectant mothers abroad.

It’s a hellava deal.

For $7,750 plus taxes, the hotel offers expectant mothers – – many from Third World countries – – a one-bedroom suite with airport transfer, a baby cradle, and a gift set for the mother.

In addition, the baby will become an automatic U.S. citizen with all the rights and privileges thereof, including social security, public welfare, the ability to travel freely to and from the United States, easy access to a U.S. education, and the right to vote.

The greatest advantage to the offer comes with the ability of the citizen child to later sponsor the legal immigration of his or her entire family permanently to this country.

Most women stay for two months, Marmara Hotel spokeswoman Alexandra Ballantine said, and they make medical arrangements on their own. “Guests arrange and pay for these by themselves,” she said of hospital costs that can approach $30,000.

“We found a company on the Internet and decided to go to Austin [Texas] for our child’s birth,” Turkish mother Selin Burcuoglu told Istanbul’s Hurriyet Daily News. “I don’t want [my daughter] to deal with visa issues. American citizenship has so many advantages.”

The “birth tourism” industry, which is difficult to track and remains largely anecdotal, has been on the rise for years, according to government and participants reports.

The Marmara Hotel is owned and operated by Kiska Construction and Development. The international firm, which is headquartered in Ankara, Turkey, is led by Oguz Gursel, who has alleged ties to the Gulen movement.

The director of Kiska’s American operations is Erden Arkan,a Turkish national.

    Mubarak Hussein Obama knows he isn’t going to win in November and he will stop at nothing to remain in the Whitehouse. Importing Muslims and Illegal aliens is the answer to his problems.

    This is MADNESS!
    It’s Invasion!
    We need help from above. We need a good reason to Impeach this criminal mastermind and his thugs.
    Dear God please come to the aid of the western world before it is to late.

    oh yes, it is very hip in Istanbul.

    Same thing Hispanics/Mexicans do. America needs to get rid of the Anchor Baby law. It is stupid, no other country has that stupidity.

  4. istambul says:

    i bet F.G is behind this, he is in health business too, and he was enforcing some strange health laws.

    Take a look at the above link and tell me what do you think when you read the ”lawsuit” section of the wikipedia article about him…isn’t that funny? May be he is making this whole web thing just to distract people from what he really is???

  6. Jack Sperrow says:

    ”This article has multiple issues. Please help improve the article or discuss these issues on the talk page.

    This biography of a living person needs additional references or sources for verification. Tagged since July 2009.
    It needs sources or references that appear in third-party publications. Tagged since July 2009.
    Its neutrality is disputed. Tagged since July 2009.”

    That is exactly what you are going to see on the top of the Wikipedia page when you type in Paul L. William…

    If he really is what he claims to be, why can’t he just show any references from universities he claimed to have a PhD from?!

    Hope you guys got the message….Don’t sell your ears to someone who can’t even verify his identity.

    Jack Sperrow;
    Hello are we to understand you are the pirate in the Carribean movies? Shall you be sued or criticized for assuming the name of another?

    How do we know anything about anything – because we research. This hotel is a confirmed business. A very lucrative one.

    No one has “sold their ears” because Dr. Williams or anyone else has not offered us bribes or money to listen to logic. The only con game is the one by Taqiyya artists who learn this type of behavior in the Quran. Why is the notion of Anchor babies so foreign to you?

    Perhaps you are part of the Hizmet and just trying to discredit Dr. Paul L. Williams who happens to be an author of 6 books (if you would have bothered researching further) you would have seen that 1 book exposes the Catholic Church and it’s shortcommings. Does that leave someone like Dr. Williams vulverable to lawsuits. YES!

    But your see Mr. Crow, when someone speaks the truth there is always critics. Mr. Robin can you understand that 1 lawsuit is not a big deal, most authors have several, it’s called “Freedom of Speech” and I can assure you Dr. Williams researches his sources very well.

    So Mr. Parrot, if you would like to debate something more intellectually sound we can do that. However, the other information is very sourced and cited. So far no one has been able to show Dr. Williams he is wrong, if they have bring it.

  8. istambul says:

    Such a pity that when you say the truth about Islamists, you are sued in your country. Dr. Williams is not the only one, In europe there are other examples too like Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff

    like Geet Wilders
    like Jussi Halla-aho
    or Ayaan Hirsi Ali

    For Taqiyya Artists it is very easy not to come with the answers with strong evidences but repeating the same things. Whatever Dr. Williams writes about Turks and Gülen is TRUE. Hundreds of sources, books and reports. We question, we research and we talk about the truth, we will go on doing it Sperrow the robot.

  9. Victoria Lopez says:

    Seems more verifiable than Jack Sperrow.

    Dr. Paul L. Williams is an American author, journalist, and consultant, and, for over a decade, has taught philosophy, religion, and the humanities as an adjunct professor at The University of Scranton and Wilkes University.

    Paul came to international prominence in early June, 2006, as a result of his central involvement as an investigator the month prior into the suspicious activities of members of the faculty of McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. These investigations, paired with investigations being conducted by Ontario police eventually led to the arrests of 17 terrorist suspects by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).
