Syria Jihadists Congratulate Erdogan on Referendum 'Win'

Read that as 'jihadists in Syria' rather than 'Syrian jihadists'

Opposition parties are challenging the victory Erdogan proclaimed in the referendum held yesterday in Turkey but that is not bothering his supporters. And by his supporters we mean the TOW-packing Salafist fundamentalist militants sitting in Jihadistan, which they've carved out of northern Syria with Erdogan's help.

Aside from leaders of globally important states like Azerbaijan, Macedonia and Belarus, among the first congratulatory notes the new Sultan has received have been from Ahrar al-Sham, Jaish al-Islam, Faylaq al-Sham and Sultan Murad, fighters for moderate head-chopping.


Erdogan waited in vain for congratulatory notes from his fromer proxies, Tahrir al-Sham (al-Qaeda) and ISIS, however.
