Davutoğlu to sue people referring to his remarks on ISIL

Must read

Former Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, who also previously served as Turkey’s foreign minister, announced on his official Facebook page that he would sue people who had shared a comment he made on the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), arguing that these references are part of a deliberate campaign against him.

As Turkey is increasingly targeted by ISIL, many social media users refer to a paraphrased version of Davutoğlu’s remarks describing ISIL as “a bunch of angry kids.” Davutoğlu rejects such a description of his words. The statement he made while foreign minister that is often referred to in criticizing him is as follows:

“ISIL could be seen as a radical and terrorist structure, but there are Turks, Arabs and Kurds among its participants. The structure there [in Iraq] and the previous grievances and anger have resulted in a wide reaction.”

Davutoğlu sued several journalists during his term as a prime minister over critical Twitter messages.
