Dr. Pipes

In the flood of reports about the brutality of ISIS this article from Reuters news is very interesting

http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/06/14/us-libya-turkey-consulate-idUSKBN0EP0KA20140614

Turkey pulls diplomats out of Benghazi, because of terrorism and urges nationals to leave Libya. However, in the same article we are told that ISIS seized the Turkish consulate in Mosul and 49 were taken hostage including the consul general. Also 80 Turkish citizens were taken hostage by ISIS and I suspect that most of them if not all were killed

The leaders in Turkey seem to believe that they are immune from this cancer called Islamic terrorism but I suspect that Turkey will be their next destination

Oh Iran? I believe that Iran is our natural ally because they have no illusions about Sunni terrorism
