Hollande and Other Western Leaders Prepare to Hobnob With Muslim Fascist, One Day After France Attacked by Muslim Fascists

Remind you of anyone?

The G20 is about to convene a meeting in Turkey, which currently has the presidency of the organization. It is set to begin Sunday.

In just a few years, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has taken Turkey from being the most secular and liberal majority Muslim country in the world to an authoritarian state with the highest number of imprisoned journalists.
Mosques are our barracks, minarets our bayonets, domes our helmets, the believers our soldiers,
declared Erdoğan, famously in 1998, a statement that got him banned from participating in Turkish politics. His prime minister has called Islam the indigenous religion of Europe and Erdoğan himself refers to a hopeful Muslim recapture of Al Andalus (Spain).

He also believes that many of the bad things that happen to Turkey are caused by a "Mastermind" who is part of a 3,500 year old Jewish conspiracy to control the world. Once a close ally of Israel, Turkey is now a virulently anti-semitic enemy, and in a recent campaign speech Erdoğan vowed to lead Muslims to retake Jerusalem.

Turkey has had a complex relationship with ISIS, which at times has seemed to be almost an alliance.

And most of the million mostly Muslim refugees that have streamed into Europe in the last few months have gone through Turkey, largely due to border and travel policy changes and the facilitation of the Turkish authorities. It is likely that at least two of the terrorist commandos killed in Paris yesterday made their way to the Greek island of Leros, and then on to continental Europe by way of Turkey.

In an interesting bout of candor, Erdoğan is on record as agreeing with Islamophobes that talk of "moderate" vs. "extremist" Muslims is not useful:
These descriptions are very ugly, it is offensive and an insult to our religion. There is no moderate or immoderate Islam. Islam is Islam and that’s it.
So, why, especially so soon after the horrific attacks in Paris, do Western leaders, including the President of France, go off to knock water glasses with this wannabe Caliph of a wannabe Caliphate?

I think the answer is unclear, but the question itself shows that despite the rhetoric of the last twenty-four hours, there is still not only no stomach to fight, but not even any stomach to identify who and what we are fighting.
