Turkish President Recept Tayip Erdogan has not only disappointed Muslims abroad, he is now creating divisions inside Turkey in a fit of jingoism. It will prove disastrous for the country.
What is Turkish President Recep Tayip Erdogan up to? After the Turkish people repudiated him and his party in the recent elections, he now wants to turn the people against the Kurds. This is a shortsighted policy and will cost Turkey dearly. For personal political gains, Erdogan is causing damage to the Turkish people and republic. He must reconsider his policy before it is too late. The Turkish people deserve better.
