Who said that?
It wasn’t a conservative American. It wasn’t anyone here on the Fellowship of the Minds. It was Tayyip Erdoğan.
Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is Turkey’s Prime Minister since 2003 and also the chairman of the Justice and Development Party (AKP), which holds a majority of the seats in the Grand National Assembly of Turkey. In the recent 2011 general election, the AKP was re-elected for a third term and Erdoğan remains Prime Minister of a single party government.
