Erdogan has many latent tendencies that are troublesome.  He is, at times, a very reluctant ally of the West. 
For the progressive, there is very little to love about the United States. Washington, Jefferson, Madison? A bunch of rotten slaveholders, hypocrites, and cowards even when their hearts were in the right places. The Declaration of Independence? A manifesto for the propertied classes. The Constitution? An artifact of sexism and white supremacy. The sacrifices in the great wars of the 20th century? Feeding the poor and the disenfranchised into the meat-grinder of imperialism. The gifts of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Astor? Blood money from self-aggrandizing robber barons. Nat Rev

Maybe so but I'll bet Imam Obama, Loretta Lynch, and the democrat party will be watching to see if they can slide some of his program into America.

He is no "ally" of The West and has never been one.
He is an advocate of islamic expansion and conquest.

Safe to say, there is no muslim leader who is our "ally".
Never has been one.
Never will be.

That one can BE a muslim AND an "ally of The West" is an oxymoron on its face.

True enough, actually.  You are correct.
