Turkey’s role in supporting the takfiris is beginning to create problems for the country.
Turkey is playing a very dubious role in the Levant and the broader Muslim East. Its “zero problem” policy crafted by the owlish former Foreign Minister and now Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu is in tatters. If Recep Tayip Erdogan wanted to be the new Pasha, his dream has become a nightmare. When you keep bad company, you are bound to be affected. The takfiris will now come to bite Erdogan. It is difficult to sympathize with him.
