TURKISH ELECTIONS: Erdogan Threatens ‘Holy War’
Turkey is unquestionably at a crossroads. On June 24th voters will go to the polls in a double election, one Parliamentary and one for a new President with vastly increased powers. If they elect current President Recep Tayyip Erdogan then it is probably the last free election that Turkey will see in a while. Erdogan is a radical Islamist.
“These measures taken by the Austrian chancellor are, I fear, leading the world towards a war between the cross and the crescent.”
“You do this and we sit idle? It means we will take some steps too,” he said, adding that the “western world should get their act together.”
Meanwhile, Greece has been forced to put 8 Turkish army officers under armed guard over fears they could potentially be assassinated over allegations they were involved in the attempted coup which aimed at deposing Erdogan.
Erdogan’s Deputy, Recep Akdag has said that he wants Turkey to join the EU within five years raising the terrifying prospect of an Islamist Turkey becoming part of the EU as well as opening European borders to mass immigration.
