Turkey lashes out at Germany over allegations it has become Islamist ‘hub’

by Reuters  |  published on August 17, 2016

Turkey lashed out at Germany on Wednesday, saying that allegations that Turkey had become a central hub for Islamist groups reflected a “twisted mentality” that has been trying to target President Tayyip Erdogan.

German broadcaster ARD this week published part of a confidential German government report, which it said marked the first official assessment linking Erdogan and Turkey’s government to support for Islamist and terrorist groups.

The report said Turkey had become “the central hub for Islamist groups in the Middle East”, ARD reported.

In a statement, Turkey’s foreign ministry said: “The allegations are a new manifestation of the twisted mentality, which for some time has been trying to wear down our country, by targeting our president and government.”

Tensions between Ankara and the West have been aggravated by the failed coup attempt on July 15, when a group of rogue soldiers tied to overthrow the government, killing 240 people.

    Merkel pointing a finger at Turkey, interesting! She must be trying to look anti islamic in her country to side step her lousy policy of NWO open borders. Stay on her like a fly on flypaper German citizens. This woman is a nightmare and so sorry it is happening. We are fighting the NWO crowd as well here in the US. We do need to end their nightmare NWO dreams now. This is the battlefield and the second front is a new crusade with moslimes. They are invading and some countries already know it. Loved the article about the town that sent the attacking moslimes back to their safe zone with an ass kicking. Good job.

      I still believe that Merkel hates her country as much as Obama hates ours! She’s just like Obama on most matters, and they’ve already taken their guns to please the UN, and Obama’s trying hard here to please them!, and plus Germany has already turned to socialism!

    With Turkey blockading our base there that contains some nukes and only about 70 miles from Syria’s Northern border, Turkey should be considered an unstable risk to not only the region, but to Europe as well.
