Turkey’s relationship with ISIS proves it is deserting its European allies

Any distance Erdoğan has placed between himself and ISIS is attributable to pressure from Russia, the U.S., and Europe, not to his rejection of the group’s Islamist ideology.

In view of Turkey’s increasingly divisive and destabilizing influence in the Middle East, the region’s biggest concern for the West could be President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s burgeoning Islamist tendencies. In order to understand the Turkish role in the threat of Islamic State (ISIS), born of the Muslim Brotherhood, it is necessary to rewind six years.

2014 was the year ISIS became a very real threat to the Middle East. Within one year, the group managed to take over a third of Iraq and half of Syria, with 200,000 fighters under its control. ISIS quickly became successful at producing and selling oil as an important source of income. It also managed to ensure a constant supply of weapons, ammunition, vehicles and advanced communication devices.

The ability of ISIS to become a functioning state so quickly is largely due to its relationship with Erdoğan.
