Reports indicate that the fundamentalist terrorist group ISIS just recently opened a consulate in Ankara, the capital of Turkey.

What better place to open shop than in a NATO country that also happens to be predominantly Muslim (98.6 percent in 2014).

According to Aydinlik Daily, a Turkish news source, ISIS has “started to issue visas to those who want to join the jihadist fight in Iraq.”

Allegedly, the consulate, in a twitter account that has since been suspended, indicated that visa applications could be sent to isisturkey@gmail.com. Also, the address of the consulate, the Cankaya district of Ankara, was listed on the suspended twitter account.

The same site also claimed that those who were injured during war deserve treatment, regardless of which side they fought on. The site stated the following:

Our army continues with its operation to clean out Kobani district of Iraq. 471 terrorists were killed and unfortunately there were children among them.

Aydinlik Daily suggests that the Turkish ruling AKP government “provided great conveniences to the terrorist organization during negotiations to secure the return of 49 Turkish diplomats who were kidnapped” from the Turkish consulate in June.

CNN reported that “It’s unclear how they were freed, but” noted that the Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu “described [the release of those held captive by ISIS] as a late-night operation.”
