Excerpts from the Arab and Iranian Media & Analysis of US Policy in the Region

This is where Turkey’s Erdogan said ISIS and the Kurds and a bunch of other bad guys all plotted the recent bombing together

Pretty incredible:

On October 22, Turkish state-funded news agency Anadolu reported a speech by President Erdogan:

Ankara 22 October 2015 (Anatolian) – Speaking about the terrorist attack in Ankara, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said: “The incident in front of Ankara Train Station is one that shows how terrorism is carried out collectively. They get up and say, ‘DAES did it, someone or other did it.’ This is entirely an act of collective terrorism. DAES is involved, the PKK is involved, Al-Mukhaberat is involved, the PYD in northern Syria is also involved. They all planned this attack together.”

Saying: “If we give in to these attacks, if we cower before these attacks, if we flinch, if we -God forbid -climb down we would be doing a disservice to the past 40 years of toil, to those who have taken the cause to this point. We would be unable to show our face to them,” Erdogan continued:

“…Speaking about the terrorist attack in Ankara, Erdogan said:

“You can see what they did. Right there in front of the Ankara Train Station. Look, this terrorist incident is one that shows how terrorism is carried out collectively. Now they get up and they say, ‘Sir, DAES did it, someone or other did it.’ This is entirely an act of collective terrorism. DAES is involved. The PKK is involved. Al-Mukhaberat is involved. The PYD terrorist organization in northern Syria is involved. They all planned this attack together. I specifically want you to know this. Do not be fooled. What happened in Suruc is clear. What happened in Diyarbakir is clear but my Kurdish brothers can see this ploy for what it is because they do not care about human life. They will never care about it. After every terrorist act they start their perception operations at home and abroad…”
