For the second time in 4 months, Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan has been closely tied to a Saudi national who has been designated by the US Treasury Department as a foreign terrorist.
The Saudi terrorist is a man named Yasin al-Qadi.

Interesting. Thanks for posting.
Big deal! The Obamas were linked to terrorists first, this guy is a copycat.
Thanks for that link. Very interesting analysis of Putin’s effectiveness
Whenever I see a headline involving Turkey and it’s leader, I think of turducken.
Ummmm, it’s Turkey. Is anyone surprised?
These demonstrations against the AK Party are from a few years ago. There have been more protests since then.
Lest some think that all Turks are ready to give in to Islamism, Sharia law, and burkas.. well no they are not.
"Opinion polls that measure attitudes toward the AKP and its conservative values suggest that 32 percent to 38 percent of Turks (upward of 25 million people) would never support the AKP or want to live in a country shaped solely by its values."
This is the source of the images and details.. though it looks like these and other images are now missing from the site but are apparently still available from the source in Turkey (or if the photos are still with my reply there's maybe a cache somewhere from the last time I posted these).
The image on the banner is of Ataturk the founder of modern secular democratic constitutional Republic of Turkey. The photos are from demonstrations of a few years ago protesting the ruling AK Party's Islamist (political Islam & Sharia law) leanings and reminding the AKP that they promised the voters that they would respect Turkey's heritage of secularism.
That’s the girl with whom I had a date in Constantinople but she was waiting in Istanbul.
Yes, I remember that. James Bond stood in for you.

Actions are louder than words and, alas, it seems Tans words are empty given the approach the government he represents has taken toward al-Qaeda in recent years.
Ahmet Kavas, like Tan a Turkish ambassador, raised eyebrows earlier this year when against the backdrop of al-Qaeda fighting in Mali, he declared, Al-Qaeda is very different from terror and that The word terror is a French invention. Not the work of Muslims.
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip ErdoÄan, the man for whom Tan works, has embraced and continues to support Yasin al-Qadi, designated by the U.S. Treasury Department to be terror financier, having channeled money to al-Qaeda.
After it came out that Cuneyt Zapsu, a top ErdoÄan adviser, had donated money to Yasin al-Qadi, ErdoÄan defended both his aide and Qadi himself. I know Yasin, I believe in him as I do in myself. He is a charitable person who loves Turkey, Erdogan told Turkish television.
Turkey has in recent years embraced Hamas, and Tan himself has gone above and beyond to defend the flotilla meant to support the terrorist group. The head of the flotilla that Tan defended?
Apparently, he has also been involved in channeling money to al-Qaeda. Tan likes to be all things to all people, but if hes serious that Turkey stands against terrorism, perhaps he might want to explain the support he, his colleagues, and the government he represents provide toward terrorists."
Could be Turkey trying to emulate the Saudis by playing both sides. Hard to say.Difference is the Saudis have the money to do it with.
I repeat best policy for the US is to stay the hell out of the mid-east.just let them destroy one another.
Turkey better get used to sharia law. Its the wave of the future. Islam takes no prisoners. The mad muzzies are always the most outspoken and the most violent. Hence they usually win.
Thanks for the info, comment; ping. BTTT!
