Recep Tayyip Erdogan har bedt USA om at udlevere Fetullah Gülen. Det sker samme dag som udenrigsminister John Kerry roser Erdogan for at lov og orden igen er oprættet i Tyrkiet.

“Today, after this coup attempt, I’m once again calling on you, I’m saying: Extradite this man in Pennsylvania to Turkey now,” Mr. Erdogan said on Saturday in televised remarks from Istanbul in a personal appeal to President Barack Obama.

Tyrkiet smider hansken til USA. Hvis Obama ikke udleverer Gülen, er USA en fjende af Tyrkiet:

“Any country that stands behind him is no friend of Turkey, is engaged in a serious war with Turkey,” Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said from his office in Ankara.

Hvis det her er retningsgivende for Tyrkiet efter kupforsøget, kan Vesten være forberedt på flere overraskelser. Troede Kerry at Erdogan ville være taknemlig?

Since Friday, some 3,000 alleged followers of the Gulen movement who participated in the failed putsch have been arrested, a senior Turkish official said. Meanwhile, Turkey’s top judicial board purged 2,745 judges and authorities detained two Constitutional Court judges, as well as some prosecutors, for alleged links to Mr. Gulen’s network, according to Turkish officials.

Tyrkiet har forsøgt at rejse en sag mod Gülen ved en amerikansk domstol, men stævningen er blevet afvist fordi beviserne er vurderet som utilstrækkelige.
