President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has accused Turkey’s western allies of arming terrorists and killers who target Muslims around the world.” Erdogan is a master propagandist. It’s the other way around. Muslims are persecuting Christians worldwide, targeting Jews in the State of Israel and in Europe, targeting Hindus in India, Yazidis in Iraq, and Muslims they […]

Hugh Fitzgerald: Why Turkey Should Be Expelled From NATO (Reason #877)

Let’s recapitulate: Erdogan has repeatedly attacked the Kurds in Syria, who have been our closest allies against ISIS.

Turkey exporting jihad ideology into South Asia “under the garb of relief”

Turkey has been exporting its ideology under “the garb of relief,” a well-known global strategy of the Muslim Brotherhood that Brotherhood operatives practice frequently in the West. “Turkey’s strong backing of the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) has been extensively catalogued, but not much has been written about the country’s support for the Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), the Brotherhood’s […]

Turkey: Directorate of Religious Affairs considering banning imam from preaching because he sings rock music

Whenever I note that Islamic law forbids music (aside from nasheeds, a cappella songs encouraging jihad), I am excoriated as a greasy Islamophobe, but it’s nonetheless true: Hadith Qudsi 19:5: “The Prophet said that Allah commanded him to destroy all the musical instruments, idols, crosses and all the trappings of ignorance.” (The Hadith Qudsi, or […]

Turkish ambassador to European security organization OSCE says “public should be told that Islamophobia is a crime”

The problem is that “Islamophobia” is a propaganda neologism that is used by its purveyors to refer to two distinct phenomena: harassment of innocent Muslims and violence against them, and honest analysis of the motivating ideology behind jihad terror. The goal is to use efforts against the former to silence the latter, so that no […]

NBA Star Feuding with Turkish President Fears for His Life, Won’t Travel with His Team

It is good to see someone finally call out Turkey’s reckless would-be caliph, Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Enes Kanter is right.
