Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is a Turkish politician, a former mayor of Istanbul, the Prime Minister of the Republic of Turkey from 14 March 2003 to 28 August 2014 and president since 2014. He is also the former chairman of the Justice and Development Party (Adalet ve Kalkınma Partisi; AKP), which holds a majority of the seats in the Turkish Parliament.[1] Under his leadership, Turkey has been slowly transforming into an Islamist dictatorship.

Positions

Erdoğan has proven time and time again to by highly supportive of Islamist causes. During the Syrian Civil War, Erdoğan provided tactical and financial support for Sunni Islamic jihadist groups fighting against the regime of Bashar al-Assad in Syria.[2][3][4][5] In addition, he has sought to use those proxies to establish a sphere of influence in the the northern part of the country, a move that is consistent with imperialist foreign policy.[6]

During a visit in the Gaza Strip, Erdoğan said he “hopes that his visit can contribute to the process [of establishing a Palestinian state].”[7] During the Syrian Civil War he supported the Muslim Brotherhood.[8] In 2013 Erdoğan beat the secular protests against the government violently down[9] and started to censor the media.[10]

In March 2014 he banned Twitter.[11]

Erdoğan harved attention after he explained that America was not discovered by Christopher Columbus, but by a Muslim.[12]

Erdoğan is pro-life. He wants to curb abortion.[13]

Criticisms

Erdoğan has been criticized for his opposition to Israel. John Kerry criticized Erdoğan for his equal enforcement of Zionism with Fascism.[14] He was also criticized by the conservative governor Rick Perry for his aggression against the Jewish state of Israel.[15] Erdoğan said that Hamas is a "resistance group".[16] After Omar Hassan al-Bashir caused a genocide against Christians, Erdoğan defended Bashir and answered: 'Muslims Don't Cause Genocide'.[17] In May 2017, Israel criticized Erdoğan for urging Muslims to overrun the Temple Mount in order to protect against "Judaization," among other anti-Israel comments.[18]
