You may be surprised but most jihadists killed and captured in Chechnia by the Russians are not Arabs , but our good "secular" Turks ! The Russians have repeatedly indicated Turkey as the primary source of foreign jihadists on Russian territory and they avoided euphemisms saying bluntly that " Turkey is a record breaker for producing foreign mercenaries killed in Chechnya " and making identities of killed or captured Turkish jihadists available to the Western public . But as long as the Turkish jihadists were killing or harming "only" Russians , nobody in the pro-Turkish West really cared for Turkish jihadism or Russia's claims and victims . But - what a surprise - when the Moslem Turkish terrorists turned against Israel , some belated awakening came at last as to what Turkey really stands for ! Too late , alas, as had more common sense or curiosity prevailed in the West or in Israel , the anti-Semite flotilla full of Turkish and other terrorists would have had no chance to promote so spectacularly the evil Islamic agenda by doing so much damage to Israel .
