Turkey tries to get Muslim Bortherhood into Syrian government....

If this is true...well, another indicator of how far Turkey has wondered...
Ankara asked Damascus to offer the Muslim Brotherhood government posts in exchange for Turkey's support in ending rallies in Syria, an offer rejected by Bashar al-Assad, officials and diplomats said.

The plan, which would have required that at least a quarter of ministerial positions went to the currently banned organisation, was initially mooted over the summer.

"In June, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan offered, if Syrian President Bashar al-Assad ensured between a quarter and a third of ministers in his government were members of the Muslim Brotherhood, to make a commitment to use all his influence to end the rebellion," a Western diplomat told AFP.
