Turkish minister: Gulenists are more dangerous than ISIL because they’re well-educated


Date posted: October 8, 2016

Berat Albayrak, Turkish energy minister and son-in-law of President Tayyip Erdoğan, has said at a conference that people affiliated with the Gülen movement are more dangerous than Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants because they’re well educated and have “higher IQs” than his own.

Albayrak recently spoke at an event organized by Justice and Development Party (AKP) members in Gaziantep province.

“On one hand, there are uneducated people who have been fooled, who have lost their families, who have lost hope. On the other hand, there are people with higher IQs than mine, who are better-educated than me, who improved themselves. There are judges, commanders and professors among them. They also have a good level of income. However, the outcome is nothing but treason,” Albayrak stated.
