‘You Are a Terror State’: Erdogan Says Israel Pushing Region Into War


Editor’s note:  The importance of this is that the statement was made to the Turkish “approved” state press and then republished in the Russian “approved” state press.

Take the clock back only a couple of days and we have Benny Netanyahu with Putin reviewing the troops on V Day in Moscow, same time Benny is bombing Syria.

Oh how fickle….g

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Israel of using unnecessary aggression in Syria and blamed Tel Aviv for pushing the entire region toward full-scale war.

In an interview with BBC Arabic on Sunday, Erdogan said that Israel is “sowing fear and pushing” the Middle Eastern “region to war.”

The Turkish leader also denounced an Israeli airstrike on Syria that took place three days ago, calling it an attack on the sovereignty of the beleaguered nation, now in its seventh year of civil war.

Erdogan also criticized US President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iranian nuclear deal, Ynetnews.com reported.

Erdogan has consistently criticized recent actions by both the US and Israel. Last week, he told CNN that the US Israeli embassy’s move to Jerusalem was a “huge mistake.” He repeated his position that “east Jerusalem is the capital of Palestine” and that “when a Palestinian state will be established,” a Turkish embassy will open there.

According to Erdogan, Trump’s decision further isolates the US diplomatically. He said that by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the US stands to “lose allies.”

In late March, the Turkish leader “strongly” condemned an “inhumane attack” by Israeli soldiers on unarmed Palestinian demonstrators on the of the Gaza Strip border, a day after the Israeli military killed 16 other unarmed Palestinian protesters. As of May 13, the death toll stodd at 53 people, including the elderly, children and journalists.

“Have you heard any noteworthy objections to the massacre by Israel that happened yesterday in Gaza from those who criticize the Afrin operation?” Erdogan asked during his March 31 speech in Istanbul, referring to a Turkish military invasion against Kurds in northern Syria.

Netanyahu has for years on Twitter accused Erdogan of “bombing civilian populations indiscriminately.”

Speaking to supporters in the province of Adana, Erdogan said to the Israeli Prime Minister:

“We [Turkey] are dealing with terrorists. But you are not concerned about terrorists because you are a terror state,” according to Hurriyet.

  1. well…it can’t hurt…..and what about the rumblings just starting to appear that usa/israel has already decided on a plan to strike Iran as political cover for the criminal bibi and his side kick orange head?

    has Russia no incentive to at least try to prevent the start of such a war?

    or like in Syria is it also none of their concern?

  2. “Demoicratic Germany” has no Constitution; it is still being ruled under the Allied Occupation Basic Rule. The real East Germany was annexed to Poland & the Soviet Union, despite UN Charter stating conquered territory cannot be made annexed. (As was done to Hungary – Slovenia sits on a sizeable slice). All German Communications (post, telegraph, telephone, print media, TV) is under Allied (or their private enterprise proxies) till 2045. Germans cannot sue in any German court for any Allied war-time actions on the civilian population.

  3. At least President Erdogan has the balls to say what many only think. Since his election he has been busy ridding his government of Israeli stooges. When he is finished at home I suggest we invite him to America, where he can do the same for us.

  4. you barred him from germany? what is a kosher breakfast?
    matzah balls and canned what?weird.
    john 8:44 to you eduardo.
