    Can he also ask the Turks in Europe to return as well? The Germans won’t miss their kebabs and it would free up apartments for the hippies to squat.

    So begin’s Turkey’s Great Purge. Gulen’s the target.
    He’s the Trotsky to Erogodan’s Stalin.

    Hence, the teachers are just pawns in the strategy to choke off Gulen’s money flow; no influence and no ability to rival Erogodan

      If they’re too stupid to realize where supporting Erdogan will get them, then they deserve whatever they get. Screw ’em.

    The muslim turks are fairly recent migrant arrivals themselves in the country they now occupy and ruin if you take the long historical view. Their expertise at doing a more successful repeat invasion of their last failed initiative in Euroreich seems to be quite apparent to all.
