Obama said his “most trusted,” “favorite ally” in the world is Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan — the man responsible for throwing off the modern era of Ataturk and returning Turkey to the backward savage system of the oppression and subjugation of Islamic rule.
“The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers.” Turkish PM Recip ErdoganTurkish President and former Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan thinks of himself as a caliph, and is looking at Syria with imperial ambitions (more). President Assad of Syria said, “[Erdoğan] personally thinks that he is the new sultan of the Ottomans and he can control the region as it was during the Ottoman Empire under a new umbrella. In his heart he thinks he is a caliph.”
One anonymous US official, speaking to the New York Times this week, said that Ankara was “inventing reasons not to act” in the besieged northern Syrian town of Kobani: “this isn’t how a NATO ally acts while hell is unfolding a stone’s throw from their border,” the official added. An anonymous U.S. official reached by the Washington Post was no kinder: the Turks, the senior official said, are dragging their feet because “they want the U.S. to come in and take care of the problem.”
Muslim fighters from Europe, Canada, the US, Australia, etc., are using the Turkey/Syria border to cross in order to fight for the Islamic State.
Much thanks to Oliver North for the photo: “A Turkish soldier ‘visiting’ an ISIS anti-aircraft unit at Kobani. They look way too friendly. Photo was sent to me by a US contractor at the Kobani border crossing.” (thanks to Armaros)
Ankara may deny helping ISIS, but the evidence for this is overwhelming. “As we have the longest border with Syria,” writes Orhan Kemal Cengiz, a Turkish newspaper columnist, “Turkey’s support was vital for the jihadists in getting in and out of the country.” Indeed, the ISIS strongholds not coincidentally cluster close to Turkey’s frontiers.
Kurds, academic experts and the Syrian opposition agree that Syrians, Turks (estimated to number 3,000), and foreign fighters (especially Saudis but also a fair number of Westerners) have crossed the Turkish-Syrian border at will, often to join ISIS. What Turkish journalist Kadri Gursel calls a “two-way jihadist highway,” has no bothersome border checks and sometimes involves the active assistance of Turkish intelligence services. CNN even broadcast a video on “The secret jihadi smuggling route through Turkey.”
Actually, the Turks offered far more than an easy border crossing: they provided the bulk of ISIS’ funds, logistics, training and arms. Turkish residents near the Syrian border tell of Turkish ambulances going to Kurdish-ISIS battle zones and then evacuating ISIS casualties to Turkish hospitals. Indeed, a sensational photograph has surfaced showing ISIS commander Abu Muhammad in a hospital bed receiving treatment for battle wounds in Hatay State Hospital in April 2014.
One Turkish opposition politician estimates that Turkey has paid $800 million to ISIS for oil shipments. Another politician released information about active duty Turkish soldiers training ISIS members. Critics note that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, has met three times with someone, Yasin al-Qadi, who has close ties to ISIS and has funded it…… (Source: MEF)
