Rick Perry Suggests Turkey Led by Muslim Terrorists


Republican party presidential hopeful Rick Perry says Turkey “is being ruled by what many would perceive to be Islamic terrorists.” He spoke at a debate in South Carolina, where he is running for the nomination in the state’s primary elections. The Texas governor responded to the debate moderator’s comment that the AKP party, led by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has led the country into less press freedom, a high murder rate of women and deteriorating relations with Israel.
