- “Turkey says it fights IS. Maybe it does. But just randomly and reluctantly.” — EU ambassador, Ankara.
- Meanwhile, Turkey keeps on telling the world how it fights the Islamic State terrorists in Syria. Even more ridiculous than this claim is that some people apparently buy the Turkish fairy tales. In April, US Secretary of State John Kerry underlined that Turkey was an essential partner of the US in the fight against IS, and praised Turkey’s contributions.
- So it is natural that the Turks think they can always fool their allies: they help jihadist terrorists and in return get pats on the shoulder.
