  • Erdogan’s Purge Is a Sectarian War – Edward Luttwak
    An alliance between Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Fethullah Gulen came apart because it’s impossible to reconcile their rival interpretations of Islam. Gulen’s Islam is genuinely moderate – his creed truly accepts coexistence with other monotheists, including non-Sunni Muslims, and totally prohibits any form of violence in the name of religion against polytheists as well. For Erdogan and colleagues, Sunni Islam is the only religion entitled to exist at all and its conquest of the planet must be advanced by all means possible.
