Turkey's Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan was unusually quiet recently in the face of Sunni militants, inspired by al-Qaida, spreading along the country's southeastern border last month, from Syria through Iraq.

Even though the militants seized Turkish hostages as they went, the normally loquacious leader stopped short of calling the militants terrorists.

He only said that air strikes against them should be avoided.
