The arguments put forward by Islamist hegemonist and neo-Ottomanist Erdogan, is exactly the same as that employed by the PKK. But since the PKK do not support and/or whose actions run counter to Erdogan's agenda, including that of Foreign Minister Davutoglu, whose world view is predicated on his rage at the loss to Turkey of Andalussia, and the defeats at the battle of Lepanto and at the gates of Vienna, the PKK are deadly terrorists and not freedom fighters. Yes, Hamas did succeed democratically, but the mandate of Hamas was to engage in the destruction of Israel, not to limit its nihilist aggression to its democratic territory, which Israel unilaterally withdrew from. Now that Erdogan has sided with the terrorists, he has drawn a line in the sand, and has clearly demonstrated that he and Turkey, have joined with the enemy.
