For those who do not know the language of Islam and the last Caliphate, the result of negotiating with this Turkish, or any other islamic state, will be frustrating and largely unproductive.
To sit down, with a modern Western mentality, and expect to attain some honest meeting of minds is both futile and dangerous.
Turkey's Erdogan has a simple aim, to beat the house of Saud to become the next Caliph, and thereby govern and expand Sunni Islam to eventually conquer and rule the entire non-Muslim world.
For our ignorant negotiators, this may sound like the insane megalomaniac ambitions of a fictional James Bond villain, but that is exactly who they are attempting to reason with and as long as they don't get it, their efforts are futile and threaten the very existence of Western society and culture.
Erdogan is a nasty, deceitful piece of work, only marginally less repugnant than his smirking, sniggering little side-kick of a prime minister, and although we need not like those whom we do business with, we do need to at least respect them as leaders that can be trusted and willing members of the human race, but these desert fantasists live in a world of religious expansionism and hatred, and can neither be trusted nor respected.
Like any extortionist, they take what they can, and then come back for more at the first opportunity, but in this case it is far worse than simply paying a ransom to state sponsored hostage takers. By paying Jizya of 3 billion euro, we are only confirming their own madness and emboldening them to commit more crimes.
So perverse has our relationship with these barbarians become, that we are paying them, not to release their migrant hostages, but to keep them where they are.
