The code you have provided is a demonstration of something that has already been demonstrated mathematically. Doesn't matter how you phrase your posts that remains true.
Lets say you create a interpreter which changes the context in which the problem runs. For example it halts every single time a specific instruction is called. Certainly provable that it halts then. But that is a different problem than the one you posted.
So your choices are
1. Find your own problem and prove anything you want about it. You must fully define the problem space.
2. Find a way to invalidate the existing Turing proof using the context in which it was presented. You do not get to change that context - if you want to change the context then see item #1.
Note that step #1 even being fully correct will say nothing about the Turing proof.
