Meet The Man Who Funds ISIS: Bilal Erdogan, The Son Of Turkey’s President


“The Turkish government has in effect sided with ISIS.”
— Sergei Lavrov, Russia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs

Originally appeared at Zero Hedge

Russia’s Sergey Lavrov is not one foreign minister known to mince his words.

Turkey’s Terrorism: What Will Russia Do?

This 2-part presentation consists of two short articles by two different writers, Finian Cunningham and Dan Glazebrook, giving their separate viewpoints on the current conflict between Russia and Turkey which threatens to escalate into a major confrontation between the world powers.

The recent revelation that the United States and its mysterious pseudo-president Barack Obama actually finance Middle Eastern terrorists while simultaneously professing to be fighting them creates a painful emotional cramp in the minds and hearts of conscientious American citizens as we reluctantly realize our totally untrustworthy leaders and their insincere doublespeak pose a lethal danger to ourselves and others.
