— The Erimtan Angle —

In the early days of this month, the Turkish journalist Ece Zereycan managed to land an interview with Syria’s beleaguered leader in Damascus.

This interview was the first occasion that the Turkish public was made aware of Assad’s claims that Tayyip Erdoğan supports the Muslim Brotherhood, a claim popularised by the French journalist Thierry Meysan.[1]
