President Recep Erdogan is the Donald Trump of Turkey. He takes umbrage at anyone who dares challenge what he does or says. Challenge his policy and one hates the Muslim religion. Complain about human rights abuses,and one is in league with his enemies. His political party was denied a majority in Parliament which prevented him from changing the Constitution in order to give the President even greater power. His latest anger is directed at The New York Times which printed a picture of him leaving a mosque from which at least 100 men went to join ISIS. How dare he connect the President of Turkey with support of ISIS?
Here is the record. After refusing to launch any air strikes against ISIS, the man of action finally allowed–THREE. Of course, his air force launched over 200 air strikes at Kurdish forces which battle ISIS. To Erdogan the enemy is NOT ISIS, it is any Kurdish armed force seeking rights for Kurds in Turkey.
