Proof of Turkey support Islamic State

Yesterday, Barack Obama stated, “Turkey needs to be involved in coalition against ISIS.'' Turkey said ''it will not allow the US to use its airbases to fight ISIS.'' Meanwhile France has accused Turkey of supprting the Islamic State. The Daily Star reported:

Ankara may deny helping ISIS, but the evidence for this is overwhelming. "As we have the longest border with Syria," writes Orhan Kemal Cengiz, a Turkish newspaper columnist, "Turkey's support was vital for the jihadists in getting in and out of the country." Indeed, the ISIS strongholds not coincidentally cluster close to Turkey's frontiers.

Why the Turkish support for wild-eyed extremists? Because Ankara wants to eliminate two Syrian polities, the Assad regime in Damascus and Rojava (the emerging Kurdish state) in the northeast.

Turkey, no matter how vehemently officials deny it, supported the jihadists," writes Cengiz, "at first along with Western and some Arab countries and later in spite of their warnings." Turkey was allowing jihadist fighters to move unhindered across its borders" to fight the Kurds.

In the face of this support, the online newspaper Al-Monitor calls on Turkey to close its border to ISIS while Rojava (Western Kurdistan) threatened Ankara with "dire consequences" unless Turkish aid ceases.

Turkey remains a key ally of the US despite Ankara’s refusal to back Washington’s bombing campaign against the Islamic State in Syria.

A former US ambassador to Turkey, Francis Ricciardone, told a media call in Washington last week, according to Reuters, that Turkey had cooperated with groups such as Al-Qaeda's Syrian branch al Nusra Front and the Islamic state.

Kurds, academic experts and the Syrian opposition agree that Syrians, Turks (estimated to number 3,000), and foreign fighters (especially Saudis. CNN even broadcast a video on "The secret jihadi smuggling route through Turkey."

First, ISIS is willing to accept Turkish support even while seeing the Islamist prime minister and his countrymen as kafirs (infidels) who need to be shown true Islam.

'Turkish spokesperson. 'Turkey will refuse to allow a US-led
coalition to attack jihadists in neighboring Iraq and Syria from its air
bases, nor will it take part in combat operations against militants.''
