And still hasn’t got it right yet…
ANKARA (UPI)—Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused Israel of state terrorism and genocide against Palestinians in Gaza.
Addressing Parliament, Erdogan accused Israel of committing a slow but systematic massacre that he said started at the beginning of the 20th century, the Hurriyet Daily News reported Wednesday.
Erdogan’s comments Tuesday came in response to the latest round of violence in which hundreds of rockets were fired at civilian targets in southern Israel from the Gaza Strip and 26 Palestinians, the majority terrorists, were killed in retaliatory airstrikes.
“I am repeating my calls to Israel to end its inhuman attacks against Gaza and the Palestinian territories,” the paper quoted him as saying.
But when Young Turks, officially known as the Committee of Union and Progress (CUP) committed a Genocide back in 1915 against the christian population living in the ottoman Empire killing 2.5 million and were successfully found guilty in a court of law by their own peers of what amounts to a Genocide he denies it ever happen, even knowing..
- “Thee left-overs from the former Young Turk Party, who should have been made to account for the millions of our Christian subjects who were ruthlessly driven en masse, from their homes and massacred, have been restive under the Republican rule … They have hitherto lived on plunder, robbery and bribery and become inimical to any idea, or suggestion to enlist in useful labor and earn their living by the honest sweat of their brow … Under the cloak of the opposition party, this element, who forced our country into the Great War against the will of the people, who caused the shedding of rivers of blood of the Turkish youth to satisfy the criminal ambition of Enver Pasha, has, in a cowardly fashion, intrigued against my life, as well as the lives of the members of my cabinet.”
The Turkish PM had visited Darfur and did not see evidence of genocide during his trip, either, yet he sees evidence of a genocide when 26 Palestinians mostly terrorists are killed.
So you’ll excuse me if I think he is a blundering idiot for mistakenly claiming a Genocide here and everywhere he possibly can accept ones that are..
- Unfortunately, that is not all that qualifies him an idiot, but it is enough..
As I think of just how many people he hurt with his insensitive accusations supported by his true lack of knowledge and overabundance of ignorance in the world to allow him a stage to do it in.. Think now of the many Israelis who are everyday innocent targets to hamas’ missiles that he completely disregarded in his plea to have them ask their government to stop protecting them against the things that could kill them, their families, and their children.
Oh course his influence would be better spent on perhaps asking hamas to stop bombing as well, oh I don’t know why, just maybe to show Israel he is not a stinking, biased boob with not a shred of humanity or diplomacy in him..
Not to mention the 8-12 million Armenians he must infuriate every time he falsely labels things “Genocide” while disregarding/avoiding recognizing those that are real, or just others suffering, like referring to the Khojaly tragedy as a genocide , but disregarding the atrocities of the Armenians committed by the Azeri’s in Sumgait right before.
Then again Armenians are Christians, and killed by Muslims, maybe something racist Islamist, Erdogan is not able to see any injustice in..
Instead rather he is just another exploiter, provocateur using human tragedies maliciously and selfishly for his own personal agenda..
