Petition campaign started to declare Turkey as state sponsor of terrorism.
Petition campaign started to declare [ERDOGAN’S] Turkey as state sponsor of terrorism. (FOT).
James Jatras, a former CIA analyst, started a petition campaign on White House webpage to declare Turkey as state sponsor of terrorism. The petition also aims to finish US’s alliance with Turkey under NATO. The petition aims to collect 100,000 signatures.
Below is full text of the petition.
LIST ERDOGAN’S TURKEY AS STATE SPONSOR OF TERRORISM; VOID U.S. ALLIANCE WITH TURKEY.
Following Turkey’s downing of a Russian jet striking the Islamic State (IS), it is undeniable that Pres. Recep Tayyip Erdogan supports jihad terrorism in Syria. IS exports oil via Turkey and terrorists of IS, al-Qaeda, and other jihad groups transit the border.
This builds upon a pattern of Ankara’s support for terrorists in other countries: Russia (Chechnya), China (Xinjiang), Israel/Gaza (Hamas), Yugoslavia (Bosnia), Serbia (Kosovo), Georgia (Pankisi), Egypt (Muslim Brotherhood); aggression against neighbors (invasion and occupation of Cyprus, violation of Greece’s airspace, blockade of Armenia); and denial of genocides against Christian Armenians, Greeks, and Assyrians.
Turkey should be listed as a State Sponsor of Terrorism. The U.S. alliance with Turkey under NATO should be voided.
