How do you know? Turks are not one of the groups that has traditionally inhabited Iraq.

There are Turkmens in Iraq.
His father isn’t one though. It’s an internet rumour. David never said his father is a Turk.

His father wasn’t iraqi.
There are a lot of Azerbaijani Turks living in Iraq. That’s why. He has nothing to do with Iraq. He is Turkish.
