Turkey and Qatar” Supporting ISIS, Al Nusra & Al Qaeda in Syria & Iraq.
Flying Camel contributor Martin Weinstein has called for for the immediate implementation of a “no fly zone” over Turkey and Qatar to prevent further transfer of weapons to terrorist forces in Syria and Iraq. In addition to the proposed “no fly zone” a maritime blockade should be established to quarantine outbound shipping from both Turkey and Qatar.
Obama “spoke today with Prime Minister [Recep] Erdogan to congratulate him on his [Aug. 10] election as the 12th President of the Republic of Turkey and wish him well as he begins his term later this month,” according to a statement from the White House.
Obama’s phone call came only a few days after Erdogan declared that Jews “kill women so that they will not give birth to Palestinians; they kill babies so that they won’t grow up; they kill men so they can’t defend their country.”
Erdogan topped off the anti-Semitism with a threat of genocide: “They will drown in the blood they shed,” he told the Muslim audience.
In his statement, Obama also effectively endorsed Erdogan’s effort to revive Islam’s political role in Turkey, almost 100 years after Turkish modernizers in 1923 finally separated mosque and state, and ended the reputedly 1,400-year-old Islamic empire, or caliphate.
Under Erdogan, Turkey has begun supporting the genocidal Hamas movement, usually by finding non-military projects in the Hamas-controlled district. Turkey is now one of Hamas’s “top patrons,” said Schanzer.
