Speaking at the opening of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Ministers of Social Affairs Summit in Istanbul, Erdoğan criticized Macron for using “Islamic terrorism” at the NATO Summit held in London.

“Here at the last NATO Summit, the president of France is talking about Islamic terrorism.

There’s no such a thing,” Erdoğan said.

And now this:

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday that if he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize he would not accept it.

Mind you, Arafat won a Nobel Peace prize so anything’s possible.

Still, I haven’t laughed this hard at him since
