Terror State Turkey “Armed Boko Haram”

Terror State Turkey “Armed Boko Haram”

An Egyptian new programme has revived worrying claims that the Erdogan regime used Turkish airlinesto supply weapons to Boko Haram, the Islamist terror gang which has slaughtered thousands of Christians in Nigeria.

Turkey’s murky role in backing Islamists is in the spotlight again due to the US claim to have tracked down ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to a secret hideout just three miles from Turkey's border.

On a recent episode of bi'l waraqa wa'l qalam ("With Paper and Pen"), an Egyptian news program that airs on TenTV, its host, Nasha't al-Deyhi, said:

"Leaked information confirms that Turkey is a terrorist state; it supports terrorists — including with weapons. It supports terrorists with weapons. This time, however, not in Syria ... Today's leak confirms without doubt that Erdogan, his state, his government, and his party are transferring weapons from Turkey to — this is a shock, to where you may ask — to Nigeria; and to whom? — to the Boko Haram organization."

He then played an intercepted audio of what he said were Mustafa Varank (currently Turkey's Minister of Industry and Technology) and Mehmet Karatas (a manager at the partly state-owned Turkish Airlines).

The gist of their brief conversation in Turkish, according to the Arabic transcript, is that weapons were being transferred from Turkey to Nigeria — and that there was a concern that the weapons might kill not just Christians but Muslims.
