Erdogan’s unending follies

Ahmet Selahettin

Turkish President Recep Tayip Erdogan has disappointed many sincere Muslims. He emerged in Turkey under difficult circumstances and Muslims, especially members of the Islamic movement, had reposed high hopes in him but his policies vis-à-vis Iraq, Libya, and Syria have astonished and disappointed many. How could a leader who fought so tenaciously against the Turkish “deep state” — no mean feat — suddenly fall to the level of an ordinary politician willing to sell his soul to the devil? His alliance with the West was well-known through NATO (no fault of his) but how can he align himself with Zionist Israel and the obscurantist Wahhabis who do not even consider Turks as Muslims?
