On June 22, 2014 The Algemeiner published an article written by Daniel Pipes headed “Turkish Support for ISIS and Islamic Terrorists”. Saudi businessman Yassin Abdullah Kadi complained about this article and Mr Pipes has posted on his website www.danielpipes.org the apology below:

“In my article dated 18 June 2014 headed ‘Turkish Support for ISIS’, I alleged that Saudi businessman Yassin Abdullah Kadi has close ties to ISIS, the militant Sunni Islam group, and that Mr Kadi has funded ISIS.  I also stated that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan had met three times with Mr Kadi and I implied these meetings took place in order to further Ankara’s alleged support for the ISIS group.

I have since been informed by Mr Kadi’s legal advisers that he has never supported ISIS financially (or otherwise) nor has he ever supported any other terrorist group or activity.
