Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the ruling leader of the Islamist AK Party known for inciting hatred towards Israel with his anti-Semitic remarks, remains a great ally of President Obama.
Erdogan said the ISIS terrorists, who brought down a Russian passenger plane in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula killing 224 people aboard, were justified in their actions, according to a report by the Emirates News Agency.
“How can I condemn the Islamic State for shooting down a Russian plane as its passengers were returning from a happy vacation in a time when our coreligionists in Syria are bombed by Putin’s fighter jets? …it is the natural outcome of Moscow’s actions in Syria and the support for Assad,” said Erdogan.
Obama named Erdogan among the five world leaders that he has established relations based on confidence. Your friends tell a lot about who you really are.
